With Spring in full force, there are flowers to be planted and grass to be watered. Sometimes it is easy to forget just how simple life is when you have a sprinkler system installed. A lot of times you may not see the process of having a sprinkler system installed. You just move to the new house and everything is ready to go. Having a knowledge of how a sprinkler system is installed, will help you identify any problems you might face down the road.
We’ve all had those days when we feel like we are not accomplishing anything no matter how hard we work. Looming deadlines, increasing workload, multitasking and stress could all disrupt a person’s productivity. “Work smarter, not harder” has become a famous motto among the workforce. And this statement actually has merit. Sometimes, when we wear too many hats, take on too much work, instead of becoming more productive, our productivity actually decreases. So what can we do to increase our productivity?
Over the years, there’s been increasing interest in solar energy. Many speak of it as a viable alternative to fossil fuels, others claim the technology just “isn’t there yet”. However, when it comes right down to it, most people simply don’t understand the science behind solar energy, or their understanding is based on outdated models of 5 to 10 years in the past.
When we think of dogs, we tend to imagine a happy, goofy companion that loves to play and, most of all, loves to be sat right by our side. A running joke in the dog-parent community is the fact that our pooches absolutely lack personal space and usually, it is impossible to even go to the bathroom in peace. What most people don’t realize—and that includes some dog owners—is that our canine companions can experience emotional issues like stress, anxiety, and, in the worst cases, depression. What’s more, because the powers that be failed to give dogs the ability to talk, the only way they can get our attention to alert us that something is wrong, is by acting out in some very strange ways.
If you have ever suffered from an anxiety attack, you will understand exactly how horrific it can be at the time. While you struggle to breathe or focus, you usually find it in you to vocalize your need for help, so just imagine how much worse it would be if you couldn’t even ask anyone for help? Unfortunately, dogs that suffer from anxiety have to go through exactly that each time they feel nervous. Whether it is separation anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, or one of the many other anxiety disorders, they feel completely panicked, but they aren’t able to tell us—the pet owners—what is wrong and what they need. Fortunately, canine anxiety will often manifest itself through symptoms that usually include shaking, panting, and whining, which is what alerts us to help them overcome their disorder.
As they age, dogs may start to suffer from one of the many diseases that can take hold in us—the pet parents—too, such as cancer, chronic pain, and arthritis. Canine arthritis, just like human arthritis, gets worse when our pups are exposed to cold, wet weather or when they gain weight or overexert themselves. Certain breeds are more susceptible to hip, joint, and bone disorders, but every breed of dog can develop arthritis as they age.
If your dog is aggressive on or off his leash and has started growling, snapping, trying to bite other people or animals, or demonstrating territorial aggression, then you could be facing a serious behavioral issue that requires your attention right away. Dog aggression is one of the main reasons that quality dog trainers are always in demand; as if it is not dealt with as soon as possible then it tends to only get worse. In spite of the unfair image that the media tends to paint whereby only certain larger breeds of dog are prone to aggression, the truth is that a crazed Chihuahua can be equally as much of a problem as a husky that weighs 100 pounds.
When girls reach the age of fifteen, a Quinceañera is often thrown. It is the celebration of her transition into womanhood, and has its origins dating back many centuries, mainly in Mesoamerica. In the past, rites of passage were far more common, and a Quinceañera is just one of these rites.
