Dogs Naturally Imitate One Another

CBS Philly

By Nan Talleno

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Allelomimetic behavior in canines is an imitative behavior. It is essentially “mirroring” and a type of mimicking of posture, stance, behavior or movement of other animals in a close group. This mirroring behavior can be exhibited in dogs at any stage of life and can begin in puppyhood as young as 5 weeks old. This is an important factor in early learning.

Allelomimesis is a natural social behavior found inherently in social animals, especially canines, who are pack animals with a high social order and structure. It is an instinctual inclination hardwired in social animals to follow and mimic others in the social group. It is also known as group-coordinated behavior. This mirroring behavior is commonly seen when multiple dogs live together. For example, a dog will howl or bark when he/she hears another dog or dogs barking without knowing the specific source or…

Grain-Free Zucchini Muffins

Once in a Blue Moon 17

It’s that time of year again here in beautiful Cali when zucchini crops are abundant. My neighbors have transformed their 3/4 acre property into a sustainable garden, in which they grow a plethora of vegetables, fruit, and berries. Our properties sit against the foothills, so growing a garden without interference from the creatures who also reside here, is no small feat. As luck would have it, they usually have more zucchini than they can use and they know what a zucchini lover I am. Plus, I make them zucchini bread. Winning and winning.

My love of zucchini bread started because of Green Street’s famous zucchini bread which they serve alongside my favorite Diane Salad. Honestly, the best bread in the entire universe. BP (that’s before Paleo), I had copied their recipe pretty damn closely. As you know, baking gluten-free (grain-free) is a learning curve and I’ve never been able to…

Have you ever wondered why your pain never goes away?

FIRST COAST SPINE

Ever have aching pain in your muscles that seems to never go away? You tried taking pain medications, but realize you are only getting temporary relief. Maybe you’ve been adjusted by a chiropractor or seen a physical therapist and yet the pain keeps coming back! You might have even had X-rays or MRIs, yet the source of your pain remains a mystery. You might have myofascial pain syndrome.

 

Did you know that myofascial pain could be the root cause of most chronic pain cases! Researched showed that among 283 consecutive admissions to a comprehensive pain center, 85 percent were assigned a primary organic diagnosis of myofascial syndrome (Fishbain et al., 1986). This diagnosis was made independently by a neurosurgeon and a physiatrist based on physical examination for soft tissue findings as described by Travell (Travell and Rinzler, 1952; Simons and Travell, 1983). Another study suggested that 31% of visits…

Scientists Band Four Peregrine Falcons At Evanston Public Library

CBS Chicago

EVANSTON, Ill. (CBS) –– Dozens of Evanston residents gathered Wednesday at the South branch of the Public Library to watch scientists band and name four baby falcons.

Peregrine falcons have been nesting right outside the library for the last 12 years.

Once an endangered species, the birds of prey are now thriving in cities.

[cbs-audio-player artist=”WBBM 780’s Mariam Sobh” download=false image=”https://cbschicago.files.wordpress.com/2015/06/img_0278.jpg” url=”https://cbschicago.files.wordpress.com/2015/06/mp3_bc-wav-carts-falcons-w1.mp3″ station_name=” WBBM 780/105.9FM” station_logo=”http://cbschicago.files.wordpress.com/2014/04/wbbm-icon.jpg”]

“They came here on their own,” said Mary Hennen, head of the Peregrine Program at the Field Museum. “They were originally cliff-dwelling birds and they are using the cities like a pseudo-cliff.”

Hennen says they determine gender based on the size of the bird, but it’s not always accurate.

She says they found three males and 1 female in the nest.

The birds names were chosen from suggestions sent in by the public and include Deedee, Xemxija and Shomigomy. The 4th bird was…

1.) Poor posture:

Many young people do not stand as tall as they can. They often slouch causing for poor posture. Poor posture may not seem like a big deal to them them this early on in their lives. However, it will become a big deal later. Your teen having regular chiropractic treatments helps to promote a healthy posture and can fix misalignment’s that their initial bad posture caused.

2.) Book Bags:

Back-packs, lap-tops, gym bags, text books…the list is endless. While in school your young person has too carry around many things with them to succeed. Often times they pack all of the things that they need tightly into a bag of some sort causing a lot of strain on their back. Doctors say people should not carry more than 10% of their body weight but most people do not follow this. If your teen carry’s a book bag or something similar it could already be causing them back problems or will in the future. 

3.) Sports:

If your teen plays sports they may complain of pain from time to time. Many sports are after all pretty physically demanding. Regular adjustments can help your teen not only play better but feel better and even prevent injuries.

From these three things alone you can see why many people are considering taking their teenagers too the chiropractor for regular adjustments.
