We see giant tortoises at the zoo and we know that many people keep tortoises as pets, even the larger breeds. When we hear about the history or tortoises, we seem to understand that these are extremely ancient animals that have been around long before the humans that keep them captive and will probably be here long after we are gone. This detail alone makes the tortoise such a fascinating animal to study and observe. Today, we know that they feel at home both on land and in water, for the most part. We know what they look like: stubby legs, slow-moving, hard shell, etc. But what have tortoises really been through in their millions of years in existence? That’s what we’re here to find out.

Let’s start at the beginning. During the times of evolution, tortoises were among the species that partially made their way out of the water and went back and forth between land and sea throughout their evolution. Exclusively marine tortoises went extinct about 200 million years ago but the traces of turtles as we know it remain. During the Triassic Period, we see the body of the tortoise take its familiar form. From here on out, the body remains largely unchanged.

Although the evolution of the turtle can be an easy one to follow, unlike the snake’s for example, there are still missing links and the expected gigantism of most prehistoric animals during the mesozoic and cenozoic eras. Can you imagine a giant tortoise roaming around, eating equally giant plants? Paleontologists can’t seem to pinpoint the exact prehistoric family that modern turtles evolved from, but they can say with confidence that it was not the placodonts, as was previously considered.

Historically, tortoises have had an influence in certain religions. In Hinduism, Vishnu is half-man, half-tortoise and sat at the bottom of the ocean floor after a great mythical flood. In Ancient Greece, the tortoise is a symbol for the Greek God, Hermes. In Ancient China, turtle shells were used to make their predictions.

Today, you can find tortoises living in different parts of the world, growing to different sizes and showing different colors and patterns. The Galapagos Islands are home to giant tortoises and are said to have arrived there about 3 million years ago. One of the most impressive things about these turtles is their ability to survive without food or water for up to a year. Unfortunately, this couldn’t save the majority of the population from near extinction. Whalers and buccaneers stored them as food on long voyages, and they were used for their oil to light lamps. Today, only about 25,000 wild tortoises live on the islands. Luckily, there are conservation efforts to preserve these herbivores from human intervention and other factors that have added to their decline.

In the U.S. people are generally fond of tortoises. Many see them as a the perfect pet since they’re relatively low maintenance. They hibernate in the winter until around April, eat a regular and simple diet, and don’t really need any training or walking. Caring for a tortoise is usually emphasized by having the right environment and diet. It’s been observed that they enjoy human contact, although they’re not very social animals. If they’re kept with other tortoises, they can get aggressive but not with any major injuries. They like to burrow and will try to dig under any walls or fences so be sure to secure any enclosure.

Find a Tortoise for Sale

You can find a tortoise for sale just about anywhere these days. There are popular tortoises, like the Russian Tortoise and the Red Footed Tortoise, available in exotic pet stores and can also be found online. Before purchasing a tortoise, be sure to research the breed and its specific needs regarding lighting, temperature, and habitat. Knowing the evolution and history of tortoises, doesn’t mean you know everything about modern tortoises. Educate yourself about how to care for a tortoise properly so you can make sure you’re ready to handle the responsibility that comes with owning such an ancient animal.

What Is the USPS EPacket Service http://laborsday.info/what-is-the-usps-epacket-service/ http://laborsday.info/what-is-the-usps-epacket-service/#respond Wed, 25 Apr 2018 22:28:28 +0000 http://laborsday.info/what-is-the-usps-epacket-service/ In January 2013, the USPS will be increasing their rates for First Class International Mail for packages dramatically.

In January 2013, the USPS will be increasing their rates for First Class International Mail for packages dramatically. In many cases, the rates to ship a package internationally will double. Although this may seem like very bad news to many Amazon and eBay sellers, there is some good news. The USPS is officially launching a new International Service called Commercial ePacket in the United States.

Commercial ePacket is a USPS product offered via the services of a USPS approved Pre-Qualified Wholesaler (PQW). This service seems to be very beneficial to many shippers sending lightweight low value items overseas. Amazon & eBay sellers can now take comfort in the fact that they will no longer have to prepare the documentation and required labels for exporting from the USA. The USPS PQW that you select, will take care of all the necessary documentation. In addition, all eRetailers can now track these packages on USPS.com to the 14 participating countries.

Some key features of the Commercial ePacket Service are as follows:

  • Economical eCommerce postal product with tracking and delivery confirmation
  • Lightweight low value merchandise, < 2 Kilos & < $400 value
  • Dispatched as commercial Letter-Post Packets and utilizes overseas foreign prime post network.
  • Transit time is 4-7 days
  • Postal Customs Clearance (Duties & Taxes paid by recipient)
  • Free returns on undeliverable items
  • Tracking is performed right on USPS.com
  • 14 Participating countries: Canada, Australia, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, New Zealand, Sweden, Spain. Ireland, Finland, France, Portugal, and UK.
  • Delivery scan rates of 90% on average for all countries
  • Pricing provided by a USPS approved PQW
  • Induction sites are New York, Chicago, & Los Angeles
  • Acceptance scan by USPS and delivery scan by foreign post
  • Unique Label and Barcode ID – LX item prefix
  • Electronic manifesting, labeling done by Pre-Qualified Wholesaler, & dropped off in sacks ONLY

How does ePacket work?

Customers would contact a USPS PQW in their region and speak with someone regarding how they can get started. Ideally you would want to select a PQW who has mailing capabilities in all three acceptance cities. This becomes extremely important during inclement weather and natural disasters. Using a PQW with multiple facilities located in all 3 acceptance facilities ensures that your mail can be re-routed to another acceptance center if one becomes closed or has no flights departing as we saw during Hurricane Sandy.

The PQW will walk you throught the process of setting up your labels and data capture features. Once you have all of the data capture features running, you will either send your shipments or the PQW will dispatch a vehicle to your location. Each day you will need to provide the mail you are dispatching and send a manifest electronically outlining all the customs information for each package.

Once your packages arrive at the PQW, the PQW will confirm that they have received your electronic manifest for that particulars days shipment. If the PQW does not receive your manifest they can not process your mail through the Commercial ePacket service. After receipt of your manifest the electronic information will be uploaded into the USPS system and all the labels and necessary customs documentation will be generated. The packages will then have the proper labeling and will be sacked by country of destination and delivered to the USPS designated International Service Center (ISC).

Once accepted at the USPS ISC, the sacks will be opened and every package scanned as evidence of posting and placed on the next available outbound flight for that destination country. After flight arrival, the packages will clear through customs via the Postal Customs Clearance mechanism. This ensures that your packages move quickly through the clearance process and will not be impacted by typical delays incured by the normal airfreight clearance system.

After Clearance, packages will then be entered into the PRIME network and will receive priority processing within the destination country. Customers that are waiting to receive their packages, can have confidence that they will see the tracking information directly on the USPS website. This one feature should eliminate many customer service calls that many Amazon & eBay sellers receive daily from their customers.

Once the packages make it through the postal system of the destination country, the package will be scanned as delivered by the mail carrier once it is delivered.This scanning event will then be uploaded into the USPS site and available to all who wish to monitor the progress of each shipment.

Based on my initial findings, this service seems to be an excellent offering for companies shipping 100 or more packages daily. However, some customers that are shipping less than 100 packages per day, may also be able to benefit from this service if they decide to consolidate one or two days worth of orders before dispatching. Obviously, each customer has their own idiosyncracies that may factor into when a service like Commercial ePacket becomes beneficial. However, depending upon how far you are from JFK Airport, O’hare International Airport, or Los Angeles International Airport it may become feasible to use the service daily even if you have less than 100 packages daily. For specifics regarding the service, I would contact a USPS approved PQW today.

Preventing Elder Abuse http://laborsday.info/preventing-elder-abuse/ http://laborsday.info/preventing-elder-abuse/#respond Wed, 25 Apr 2018 11:09:13 +0000 http://laborsday.info/preventing-elder-abuse/ The abuse of elders is becoming a huge problem for us in the western world.

The abuse of elders is becoming a huge problem for us in the western world. There is so much abuse out there and it is everyone’s business to eradicate it altogether if possible.

Every week or two in the news, we seem to learn that one or two staff in a retirement facility were abusing one or more elders who live in the residence. This behaviour is unacceptable on all levels. But it continues to appal us day after day and week after week. Is there anything that can we can do about it? The short answer is yes! In this article, I will outline a few simple concrete steps that anyone could take to ensure that their loved ones and are protected.

On a large scale, big changes are hard to implement. However, on a smaller, individual and community scale, small consistent changes can made to help the most vulnerable among us have a good end of life without being abused.

There are different kinds of elder abuse. Some is physical abuse which consists in shoving, kicking, hitting, punching or pinching an elder person. Yes, there is the accidental physical kicks and flicks. That is permissible since accidents happen to everyone. However, we should take steps to look for patterns. And if there is continuous accidental shoving or pushing, we need to do some further examination.

Another kind of abuse is psychological or mental abuse. This kind of abuse tends to consist of screaming, demeaning, exaggerating or simply putting down an elder. So, statements such as, you are so stupid, sit down and shut up, or you have no right to be in this recreation room, for instance, are all examples of psychological abuse.

So, how can we prevent elder abuse? Here are a few things to try if you suspect a loved one in a retirement home is experiencing abuse.

• Talk to your loved one and ask what she has experienced. Believe him or her and don’t second guess him or her.

• Arrange to meet with someone in charge from the retirement facility to discuss the problem.

• Put in a surveillance camera in the room or place where you suspect the abuse is occurring to your loved one.

• If you suspect abuse is occurring, it may be time to move your loved one into another retirement facility if that is possible.

• Be understanding and kind to your loved one. Always understand where she is coming from.

• Always take your loved one’s avowals of abuse seriously. Never ignore her pleas.

By changing how you view abuse and believing that your loved one is indeed telling you the truth is very important in circumventing elder abuse.

Take every step that you can to communicate with your loved one and with the retirement facility. Don’t just file one complaint either. Don’t give up and keep complaining because not only the well being of your loved one is at stake, but the lives and well-being of many others as well. This is because where there is one instance of abuse, sadly there are usually many others as well.

Most Catholics don’t go to confession often enough. Many Catholics go to confession about once a year on average. Some don’t go often at all. It could be many years since they went to confession and they tend to forget about going and find it far easier to just carry on as usual.

The problem with this lackadaisical attitude is that the person will stop paying attention to the sins s(he) is committing and will just act unconsciously. One thing that setting dates ahead of time to go to confession does is make us more conscious of our actions every day and when you have gone wrong. Then you can go to confession and be reconciled with God again. What a true gift and an honour.

However, most of us forgo this honour. We carry our sins and they fester like stinky garbage in our soul. Some of us are not even aware that we have done anything wrong. We just act without thinking and without remorse.

Occasionally, we may even experience guilt or remorse. But even that is short-lived if we don’t go to confession often. Most Catholics who don’t go to confession regularly don’t feel that they are doing anything wrong, even though they are hurting God repeatedly, and they have turned their lives into a trash can.

But there is a way out of this mess. We can regain our lives with God and become what God wants us to be-obedient and living lives as children of God.

Here are a few steps that you can take to ensure that you get back on track with God.

1. Go to confession. Try and go to the Sacrament of Reconciliation at least 2 to 4 times a year. I love to go to confession once a season. This gives Catholics a good practice where they can become more aware of their wrong actions.

2. Set specific times you plan to go to confession in your yearly planner ahead of time. Then when the time comes, set a more specific date and make plans to go to confession.

3. If you haven’t gone to confession for years, it may be necessary to seek the spiritual direction of a priest. This will give you an opportunity to discuss any difficulties that you have with your life and get your life back on track.

4. Become more aware of your actions. You may want to journal every evening about how your day went. During that time, do a brief examination of conscience. Ask yourself if you sinned at all during the day. Did you hurt anyone? Did you gossip? Did you belittle or put down people who are less fortunate? Did you help a person in need? Then write down your answers to these questions.

By taking these steps, you will become increasingly Godly and develop frequent opportunities to confess your sins. You will also become more aware of your actions daily. Journaling will make it easier for you to be aware of your sins so that you could confess all your sins.

None of us deserve to be carrying a lot of spiritual garbage in our souls. It festers and turns our life into something that isn’t praiseworthy or honourable to God. In addition, we will start hating ourselves in the process. So, take steps to feel more liberated from all your sins. Go to confession!

This article offers tips on how to dress for a youth internship. In addition to gaining experience and exposure, an internship positions you to be the recipient of opportunities for jobs, contacts, scholarships, fellowships, and more. Therefore, it’s imperative that you dress for success.

7 Tips

· Never wear tennis shoes.

Unless the you will be interning at a gym or fitness center, tennis shoes should never be worn, even on dress down days. Instead, opt for a pair of casual dress shoes. This rule of thumb goes for young ladies and young men. Since we’re discussing shoes, never wear sandals that resemble house shoes.

· Keep tattoos covered.

If your arms are covered with tattoos, wear long sleeve blouses and shirts. Unfortunately, tattoos send the wrong message, and you’re trying to send the right message. Or, invest in a casual sport coat or tailored jean jacket.

· Invest in a suit.

A suit signals that you mean business. Equally important, you want to fit in at special events. Both young men and young women need to invest in a good suit. You might consider wearing it the first time you meet with the person who will be supervising or mentoring you.

Be creative. Males can pair a jacket with khakis, a nice shirt, and a tie. Females can pair a jacket with a skirt, khakis, or a dress.

· Wear a skirt or dress.

Young ladies always standout when their wearing a dress or skirt. But watch the hemlines and low cuts. You’re not there to pick up a date. Here’s a good way to determine if the dress or skirt is not appropriate. If you would not wear it to church, you should not wear it to your internship. Finally, buy skirts and dresses that are lined. If they do not have a lining, purchase a slip.

· Avoid jeans.

Wearing jeans is a no-no. Like tennis shoes, jeans are for leisure, and you’re not going to an internship to relax or play. Equally important, no leggings or workout tights. Stocking up on dress pants and khakis is a good alternative for males and females.

· Maintain good hygiene.

Keep nails manicured. If your funds are low and you are unable to get a professional manicure, buy a good finger nail file. Always look neat and clean. Keep your hair maintained.

· Keep jewelry to a minimum.

When it comes to jewelry less is always more. So, don’t wear jewelry that’s large and distracting. For those with multiple holes in the ear, only wear one pair. Moreover, remove earrings from your nose and eyes. It is suggested that young men remove all earrings. When the internship is over, you can do what you like. Keep in mind, you want to make the statement, not your accessories.

In summary, an internship is serious business, and you must come prepared to seize the opportunity. Being properly dressed for the occasion says a mouth full. However, by taking the tips in this article seriously, you’re certain to make a strong statement.

In my early encounters with both seasoned and newbies in financing for development, documenting and reporting on the outreach and communication, it became obvious that there are huge misunderstandings on both sides of the aisle (donors-investors and recipients)… Specific to sub-Saharan Africa, and to a larger extent other parts in the world, when expectations are not communicated, roles left to assumption, this can jeopardize the “relationship” in such a framework. Whether risks are downplayed or returns overblown, it’s my role to reasonably define key responsibilities of each parties and make sure the Plan forward is well understood and updated as needed.

In today’s sub-Saharan Africa’s investment needs framework, it’s likely that opportunity gap will be affecting lack of performance in areas highly known as much in demand so that local livelihoods depend on. Basic infrastructure in food, agriculture, health and education is being provisioned without much regards to medium and long term impacts or in sync to local private actors’ interests. The lost decades of development in the seventies, being in part assigned to such poor planning cycles from donors’ perspectives.

Due to early stage’ markets in sub-Saharan Africa, investors are often made up of local entrepreneurs, with very few trans-border participation in such business opportunities. Endogenous investors often gain from residual setbacks and unfulfilled demands from donors’ investments. Despite, the African food market expanding with estimates showing that it will be worth US$1 trillion by 2030 up from the current US$300 billion. Key challenges remain to allow optimal transition of their enterprises into thriving businesses.

Recipients representing the bulk 90% of the development aid resources are poised, with little to no preparation, to fulfill the delicate task of producing the grains and harvesting it with help of women and families in a typical smallholders’ farmer settings. On that note, demand for food is also projected to at least double by 2050.

These trends, combined with the continent’s food import bill, estimated at a staggering US$30-50 billion, indicate that an opportunity exists for smallholder farmers, already producing 80% of the food we eat.

At this Juncture, there is obviously no interaction between donor’s perspective, entrepreneurs and beneficiaries. Wherever resource allocation is sought to being made, due to skills scarcity and institutional instability, better outreach and communication need to be conducted for sake of ownership and thus accountability in project deliverables…

Obviously the whole starts from a dialogue… Let’s start the conversation!

The world is a colorfully diverse place and so are our workplaces. Diversity is an economic and legal priority in business. It increases the bottom line, jump starts innovation and keeps businesses out of legal jeopardy. Managers, supervisors and employees at every level of a company need to find ways to embrace and respect diversity in their departments and the organization as a whole. Here are ten ways to get started.

  1. We all have biases. It’s a natural result of our life experiences. Take a moment to write down what you biases are and how you can not allow these biases to affect the way you conduct yourself at work.
  2. Get to know someone different than you. Take a genuine interest in someone with a different background than your own. Make sure that your conversations find common ground in an area that it does not offend cultural sensibilities.
  3. Invite input from others with different backgrounds. Not only does this show respect, but it makes good business sense to have a diverse opinion.
  4. Bring together diverse groups for innovation. Inviting as many backgrounds and cultures as possible will increase the pace and creativity involved with innovation. Companies that do not change and innovate will die and the diversity can be a company’s most valuable resource in this area.
  5. Respect religious holidays. Most companies respect Christian holidays, however the workplace is far more than just Christian. All important religious holidays should be respected for employees of that particular religion.
  6. Find someone with a different background who shares the same company goal with you and strategize with them.
  7. Find out about everyone in your departments skills, knowledge and experience. This will help you respect what they bring to the workplace.
  8. Invite someone with a diverse background to lunch or change your table every day at lunch in the break room so you can sit with new people.
  9. Avoid language that demeans a particular group of individuals. For instance avoid calling women girls and avoid jokes that have religious or cultural inferences.
  10. When hiring or promoting individuals do so on the basis of facts only. Skills, abilities, knowledge and results should be the only factors involved in your decisions. Do not let biases or stereotypes affect the process.

Embrace diversity in your workplace and you are on the way to a more fulfilling and productive organization. The world is a beautiful mosaic of differences and the workplace should be as well. Respecting your co-workers and employees is paramount to tapping the valuable diversity in your organization.

Once, it was difficult to imagine morning without a newspaper. We wake up, drink a cup of coffee and read newspapers in order to find latest news in the country and around the world. Today the world has changed. Every hour there is news, every minute something happens. In order to get the latest news, just go to the internet. And if you prefer, you can even get updates (the results of football games, for example), directly to the mobile phone. And this, of course, without any mention of television news channels, which broadcast 24 hours a day. So who really needs the newspapers and there is still the future of this industry?

First of all, many people read newspapers from the habit. Indeed, why, to change anything? Why switch on a computer or TV, if tomorrow morning we will find a newspaper at the door. And if there has been something abnormal sooner, we will probably hear about it on TV. The feeling of reading the newspaper like reading books, and it is rooted in many people. You can read during meals, in bed before sleep, or even in the bathroom. You can certainly use the laptop in these places, but it is far less convenient.

Major newspapers around the world have already noticed this problem a long time. They understand that the news on the Internet is the future. It should also join this trend and this will help in particular to promote the newspaper. Who does not do so, will be left behind. Creating new and popular site with interesting material is not detrimental to the newspaper, but also expands the sources of funding. Many of those who advertise on the Internet are not always advertised in the newspapers. Thus, a circle, in which newspaper promotes the website and the website, brings new readers to the newspaper. Of course, the web site which belongs to well-known newspaper has an excellent starting point on the Internet.

Statistics around the world shows that the number of readers of newspapers is falling every year, and this is very reasonable. The younger generation does not have a natural attraction to the paper, newspapers and books and they are more drawn to the buttons and screens. Therefore, it is clear that slowly, most of the budget of papers will move on to the Internet. During this transition period, they must retain its best reporters, or their level falls, and they will lose many readers.

Personally, I and my family have long ceased to read newspapers, and it happened as soon as I realized that all the news that I read there, I already knew from websites or TV. If the newspaper does not give new information, so why buy it and spend precious time. Online news sites saves time, allows you to filter content, and make information retrieval comfortable and efficient. I like sites that collect the latest news from different sources. This way you can get convenient and most reliable objective information.

Many of us who are parents to cats notice that when we pet them, they sometimes turn around a bite our hands. Why do cats do that? Dog parents smugly state that their dogs wag their tails, pant and lick their hand. They claim that dogs don’t bite the hand that pets them. While this is not a competition between cats and dogs, I’ll give the dogs this one. I had a beautiful dog for many years (she passed away at 12) and she never bit me when I petted her. However, each and every cat (except one) has nipped at my hand.

So, why do cats bite the hand that pets them? As usual, I decided to do a little research to see if I can find the answer. From what I can tell, it looks like experts do not agree on the reasons for this pet-then-bite behavior, therefore many theories abound regarding what is called petting-induced aggression.

One theory is that unlike dogs, which are more social, petting may be something outside of a cat’s normal instinctive behavior. A suggested remedy is that cats need to be socialized to people as very young kittens. Even 5 minutes of human contact each day of a cat’s life up to 7 weeks of age will produce a much more trusting cat than those cats that did not have human contact until they were older than 7 weeks. However, this remedy does not explain all petting-induced aggressive behavior since properly socialized cats can still display this behavior. And this remedy does not help those of us who adopted adult cats.

Some experts theorize that a cat may bite once the petting exceeds her sensitivity threshold. While the cat enjoys the human contact at first, the repetitiveness of the petting becomes irritating and the cat turns and bites as a way of saying “Enough”. Another theory is that the petting not only causes irritation but that it may also cause static electricity or actual pain because of the cat’s nervous system. Or, sometimes the cat may have a pain in a particular area and your touch or even the belief that you will touch that area may trigger the aggressive behavior.

Sometimes cats may find petting so pleasurable that they actually fall asleep (with open eyes). If they wake up suddenly, they may not recognize that they are being petted and may believe that you are trying to confine them. Instinctively they may bite and run before they are fully aware that they were being petted. The final theory I found is one of control. Some cats need to control the situation where they determine when the petting starts and when it stops. What is perceived as petting-induced aggression is a way for the cat let you know who is in charge. I think behavior is more in line with my experience.

No matter the reason for the petting-induced aggression, there are some things that you can do to decrease the chance your cat will suddenly bite you while being petted.

It is important to find out if your cat has a medical condition that may cause pain when he is being petted, therefore take him to the vet for a thorough examination. Petting may cause the pain to worsen or the cat to become anxious that you may touch a painful area.

Like it or not, we just need to realize that some cats simply do no enjoy being petted. Cats are unique and while some cats enjoy human contact, love to cuddled and petted, others do not like human-initiated contact. These cats may enjoy some human closeness like sitting on your lap, but they don’t want to be picked up and petted. We need to understand that just like you cannot change the basic personality of humans with whom we interact, you will not be able to change the basic personality of your cat and need to accept him as he is.

While we may miss the warnings, cats seldom suddenly turn and bite. An observant cat parent will notice the following clues before the aggressive behavior starts:

• ears may go flat or back

• stiffening of the body

• twitching of the skin or tail

• dilated pupils

• a low growl

• unsheathing of the claws

If you see any of these signs, stop petting immediately and allow the cat to leave.

Once you are aware of the warning signs, you can begin to predict your cat’s petting tolerance level. Begin by timing from when you begin to pet your cat to the first instance of the warning signs. You can do this over the course of a week or so. Then, the next time you pet, make sure that you do not exceed this time limit. However, while timing may provide a good guide you still need to watch out for the warning clues.

You can also change the way in which you pet your cat. Some cats may prefer to receive short small strokes; others prefer to be scratched under the chin or between the ears. Not all cats enjoy whole-body petting. Try to pet you cat using the different methods. It should become pretty clear very quickly which methods are tolerable and which are not.

If your cat does bite during petting, please do not physically correct her as this may cause more aggression. However, you can reward your cat for not biting; you can give your cat a treat after each stroke she tolerates. Over time, your cat may associate the petting with treats and, barring any pain, may experience an increased petting tolerance threshold.

In the end, only you know your cat and while you can try all of the suggestions, you may have a cat that simply does not like to be petted. While it is hard to resist that fuzzy little belly, chin, neck, etc., you may simply have to find another more mutually enjoyable way of expressing your affection to your cat.
