Opposition to hunting i

Opposition to hunting is espoused by people or groups who object to the practice of hunting, often seeking anti-hunting legislation and sometimes taking on acts of civil disobedience, such as hunt sabotage. Anti-hunting laws, such as the English Hunting Act 2004, are generally distinguishable fromconservation legislation like the American Marine Mammal Protection Act by whether they seek to reduce or prevent hunting for perceived cruelty-related reasons or to regulate hunting for conservation, although the boundaries of distinction are sometimes blurred in specific laws, for example whenendangered animals are hunted.
The term anti-hunting is used to describe opponents of hunting; while it does not appear to be pejorative, it is widely used as such by pro-hunting people. Supporters of hunting contend that opposition is based on emotional reactions to the individual kill which may be eaten by the hunters, and that opponents ignore that modern hunting activities are regulated by scientifically guided legislation resulting thus in improved and increased habitat and growth in the number of individuals of each species that is legally hunted.

Geographic differences[edit]

It is difficult to compare strength of anti-hunting sentiment in different countries, for example because the word hunting carries different meanings in the UK and United States. Nonetheless, it is more possible to compare the strength of the anti-hunting movement in different countries, with some having stronger organization, such as in the UK, and some being nearly without it, such as New Zealand. However, as can be seen in the results table, opinions can vary widely on different surveys even within the same country, and as in all market research, consideration must be given to the wording of the questions, which can influence results.[1]READ MORE ON  WIKI LINK-https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opposition_to_hunting

A UNOFFICIAL HISTORY OF U.F.O CARTOONS.

I tried  to find information  about the  history of  ufos through cartoons but found very little so i decided to do this article  for myself  and i hope of some interest to fellow ufo watchers .Bits i did find were of some  interest ..in 1909 a cartoon of a u.f.o in punch...1909-05-26-363 which outshone the nessie story of the time.Iam unsure if the next bit is classed as a cartoon  but a rock painting ..10.000 years old depicting  pictures of  extraterrestrial and u.f.o,s ..chihattigarh,india could be the first  cartoon  about this  subject... www.collection.evolution.com.
"I was the Teflon in what came to be known as the Teflon presidency," Joan Quigley astrologer to Nancy Reagan, taking credit for the timing of President Reagan's actions that would deflect criticism.Now for a bit of fun my favourite  cartoon about u,f,o,s is pink u.f.o starring the  pink panther and u.f.o secret 3 d gmo cartoon -u.f.o the secret history. And finally  i saved the best to last  its called  presidential  u.f.o cartoons..www.presidentialufo.com a seris about u.f.o,s and sightings  during  various  American  presidents terms of office  with a history background  of u.f.o,s and how dealt with during  thier terms of office, example below...



It was the last day in the White House for President Ronald Reagan. He wandered into the Oval Office for the last time to look around. Taking a piece of paper he wrote a note for his successor, George Bush. He carefully placed the note inside one of the empty draws of the Presidential Desk. "Don’t let the turkeys get you down," Reagan had written.

Glancing around the office the president spotted his National Security Advisor Colin Powell arriving for the final morning national security briefing.

As Powell walked up, Reagan reached into his coat pocket and pulled out the white laminated card he had carried with him for the past eight years containing the nuclear launch codes. "Oh, who do I give these to?" Reagan asked. Powell told him not to worry - a military aide would take the card from him after the new President was sworn in.

The President of the United States is commonly referred to as the most powerful man in the world, ruling over the most powerful economy and military on the planet. In reality, the President of the United States is nothing more than a job, much like any other job in any business, industry, or government in the world.

Whether President or ditch digger, when the job ends, it is time to hand in the keys to the executive washroom, the company ID, or ,i hope thus article  sparks an interest in u.f.o cartoons,yours mark antony raines aka ghostman

$2 Photo Found At Junk Store Has Billy The Kid In It, Could Be Worth $5M

It's not every day you can plop down two bucks and walk away with some "junk" that is worth a fortune. But that's what happened when a collector purchased an old-timey photo from a Fresno, Calif., antiques shop.
This 4-inch-by-5-inch tintype depicts Billy the Kid and several members of his gang, The Regulators, playing croquet in 1878. Billy is fourth from the left.It turns out, the infamous outlaw Billy the Kid is in the photo, apparently taking part in a leisurely game of croquet.
The image could be worth up to $5 million.
Kagin's Inc., a numismatics firm, announced it had authenticated the photo earlier this month. The 4-inch-by-5-inch tintype shows Billy the Kid in the summer of 1878. It may have been taken at a wedding, and he is alongside several members of his gang, The Regulators, according to the firm.READ MORE -http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2015/10/15/448993361/-2-photo-found-at-junk-store-has-billy-the-kid-in-it-could-be-worth-5-million

Rolex worn during World War 2 "Great Escape" attempt to go on sale for £30,000

 The Rolex A Rolex watch worn by a British prisoner of war during the infamous ‘Great Escape’ attempt has emerged for sale for £30,000. Despite being held in the Stalag Luft III camp in Germany, Flight Lieutenant Gerald Imeson was still able to order and take delivery of a brand new watch in 1942. The Swiss watchmaker had offered all British officer PoWs one of their timepieces to replace the ones seized by the Germans on condition they pay after the war. The deal was only made to British officers as they were seen as honourable gentlemen. F/Lt Imeson wore the watch as he helped dig the three tunnels for the audacious escape attempt of 1944. He acted as a ‘penguin’, one of the men who secretly dispersed surplus soil dug from the tunnels through holes in their trouser pockets. He was allocated position 172 in the queue of PoWs to escape but never made it into the tunnel as the German guards discovered the break-out. Of the 76 men who escaped, 73 were recaptured and 50 of them were executed. The attempt was immortalised in the 1963 film The Great Escape.READ MORE -http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/rolex-worn-during-world-war-2528085

Rest Days: How Much Recovery Do You Really Need Between Workouts?

You know that exercising on a regular basis is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, but maybe you’re so bombarded with facts and figures about how important it is to move more all of the time, that sometimes you forget to stop and let your body take a breather.
“What people need to understand is that exercise stresses the body, so in order to ensure the positive things you’re seeking you need to allow recovery time,” says Dr. Cedric Bryant, Chief Science Officer for the American Council on Exercise. “Everything needs time to recover, rebuild and rejuvenate -read more-http://www.theactivetimes.com/rest-days-how-much-recovery-do-you-really-need-between-workouts

Stronger than drugs

Scientists have noticed something remarkable about the placebo effect, or the power of our thoughts and expectations. In recent years, it’s been getting stronger, and it’s now beginning to surpass the effects of dru
A group of people with Parkinson’s disease were asked to test levodopa, the standard drug treatment for the disease, which raises levels of dopamine in the brain. The participants were told they were probably going to be given the drug, but there was a range of chances they could be given a placebo, or sugar pill, instead.

Brain scans afterwards revealed that levels of dopamine were higher in every case. But what the participants didn’t know was that none of them had taken levodopa—all had been given the placebo. Despite that, the sugar pill—or perhaps the expectation of a result—had caused chemical changes in their brains.1

The power of the placebo is recognized by medicine as a way to test the real effects of a drug over and above our thoughts or expectations. The trick is to not tell the participant whether he’s been given a drug or a placebo in what is called a ‘double-blind placebo-controlled’ trial, the gold standard of medical studies.

But something strange has been happening with the placebo effect over the past 20 years—it’s been getting stronger. In fact, it’s been getting so strong that it’s matching, and sometimes surpassing, the effects of painkillers, and it’s stopping the development of new drugs in its tracks.

Several major new drugs have fallen at the last hurdle when tested against the placebo response, and it may cost a drug company upwards of £1 billion in research and development for a product that has to be scrapped.READ MORE-https://www.wddty.com/magazine/2015/december/stronger-than-drugs.html

London 'diverse' 2,000 years ago

A DNA study has confirmed that London was an ethnically diverse city from its very beginnings.
An analysis of 2,000 year old skeletons reveals what some of the very first Londoners looked like and where they came from.
Among them is a 14-year-old girl, that the museum curators have named "The Lant Street teenager". Analysis of her DNA and chemicals in her teeth show that she grew up in North Africa, but also had DNA that is common in southern and Eastern Europe.
The teenager had blue eyes and like many people living in the capital today, she was of mixed ancestry.
Dr Rebecca Redfern of the Museum of London gives more details of the young girl's skeleton and what she has learned.

Slugs and snails eating post

The molluscs, which have bred rapidly in the damp conditions, are partial to the glue on envelopes and stamps.
Hundreds of workers at Royal Mail sorting offices as well as homeowners are reporting deliveries arriving half-eaten.
A spokesman for the Royal Mail said staff regularly clean postboxes to keep the snails out.
He said: ''We do all we can to protect the mail and insure it is delivered to its intended recipient in a good state.
''Unfortunately there is the odd occasion when snails still manage to make a meal out of envelopes and we apologise for that
''Occasionally wall-mounted postboxes do provide good homes for snails. When we identify the problem, we install brushes in the aperture which deter them.READ MORE-http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/royal-mail/6341425/Slugs-and-snails-eating-post.html
