Numerology And Your Pet

Surprising as it may sound, Numerology does affect your relationship with those around you and pets are not an exception. After all, a pet compatible to your number can be your best friend!

We bring astrologist and numerologist, Rajeev Khattar to delve into the number game and reveal, which pet suits your number the most…

How to calculate your number?
Total of the digits of your birth date determines your birth number. For example if a person is born on 11th October, he will be governed by number 11 and number 2 (1+1 = 2 ).

Number 1
People born on dates including 1, 10, 19 or 28 are ruled by number 1 and the sun.People with number 1 are known to be determined and disciplined by nature. A dog suits their temperament the most because dogs are also known to be disciplined and alert like them. Amongst the many breeds of dogs, German Shepherd will be the best companion for people with Number 1.

Number 2
People born on dates including 2, 11, 20 or 29 are governed by number 2 and are ruled by Moon.
Just like moon changes its phases, people with number 2 are notorious for their changing moods. For them, the soft and sensitive Pomeranian dogs are the best. Since people with this number get depressed easily, having white pigeons as pets will give them the required peace of mind.

Number 3
People born on dates including 3, 12, 21or 30 of any month are governed by number 3 and are ruled by the planet Jupiter.Jupiter is the largest of all the planets in Indian astrology and keeping small chirping birds as pets will greatly benefit them. Chirping of the birds will keep their moods and mind in perfect working order.

'Dracula' Fish And Bombardier Worm Make Top 10 List

A “dracula” fish with canine-like fangs, a worm that launches glow-in-the-dark bombs and a psychedelic frogfish are among the Top 10 new species discovered in 2009, scientists just announced.

The International Institute for Species Exploration at Arizona State University and an international committee of taxonomists selected the species from around the world for the annual New Species list.”Committee members had complete freedom in making their choices and developing their own criteria, from unique attributes or surprising facts about the species to peculiar names,” said Quentin Wheeler, director of the International Institute for Species Exploration at Arizona State University and an entomologist in the School of Life Sciences.

Here are the Top 10 winners:

* Dracula fish: The minnow fish, called Danionella dracula, was found in a stream in Kachin State, Myanmar. The males of the species sport canine-like fangs for sparring with other males, likely over territory. Their lower jaws can open to a wide degree and form an angle of 45 to 60 degrees with the main body axis. This is the first record of oral teeth-like structures being found in the Cyprinidae, the largest family of freshwater fishes.

* Psychedelic frogfish: A bizarre new species of frogfish called Histiophryne psychedelica was discovered in Ambon and Bali, Indonesia. Its body is covered in a psychedelic orange-and-white swirly pattern, interrupted only by its piercing teal-colored eyes. This pigmentation could help the fish blend in among colorful, venomous corals on the seafloor in the area, scientists say.

Is Your Dog's Pet Food Making Him Sick?

3

Your dog is scratching like crazy, or sick to his stomach. Could his food be the culprit?

Food allergies aren’t extremely common in dogs, but they aren’t uncommon either. Food allergies affect dogs in two primary ways, says Korinn Saker, a clinical nutritionist at the North Carolina State School of Veterinary Medicine who specializes in canine allergies. “We either see skin issues, or GI [gastrointestinal] issues,” she says. If your dog is experiencing vomiting or diarrhea on a regular basis, or is itching constantly and licking or biting at his skin or fur, allergies may be to blame. (Your vet can help you rule out other ailments, like parasites or infections, that could cause similar symptoms.)

Unfortunately, it can be hard to tell whether an allergic dog is having a reaction to his food or to an environmental allergen such as pollen. (Dogs can also become allergic to food they’ve happily eaten their entire lives making detection even more difficult.) Still, there are ways to tell if food is the foe, Sakar says. “The most definitive way to do that is to do a feeding elimination trial,” she says. In other words, try removing the suspected ingredient or ingredients from the dog’s diet, and see what happens.

This is the spectacular moment a turtle stops to get a clean from a shoal of fish in an underwater ‘car wash’. The Hawaiian green sea turtle floated in mid water while the almost luminous yellow tang fish busied themselves with the task of removing the algae from his body.In a similar scenario to a normal car wash, the turtles take it in turns to swim into this make-shift ‘cleaning station’ for their daily wash.Photographer Mike Roberts, 60, snapped the incredible picture while diving at Puako in Hawaii.He said: ‘The turtle is visiting a cleaning station of yellow tangs.

Do Fish Have Feelings Too ??

article-1256228-07EDCC8B000005DC-15_468x335

To many, the notion that we should care about the suffering of fish seems absurd.For most, fish amount to little more than swimming protein, a healthy food to be plucked from rivers and seas.But, as a disturbing new book shows, scientists are now confident that fish, once symbolic of dumb, primitive stupidity, do not only feel pain, but have a complex emotional life, too.Indeed, as the book’s author says, there is ‘no logical reason why we should not extend to fish the same welfare considerations that we currently extend to birds and mammals’.

Do Fish Feel Pain? was written not by a militant vegan, but by a dispassionate marine biologist – who eats fish.But Victoria Braithwaite’s conclusion is particularly surprising, because we are not used to thinking about fish as sentient at all.Their expressionless ‘faces’, their lack of limbs and their alien aquatic environment make it ambiguous whether fish should be regarded on the same level as birds, reptiles and mammals, or lumped in with the worms, insects and lobsters.

Bones, Not Bamboo, Sate Wild Panda's Appetite

Hunger drove a wild panda to break into a Chinese farmer’s pig pen and eat their food, which was meat and bone, rather than bamboo.State-run China Central Television said the giant panda had apparently descended from the mountains in a region of southwest China’s Sichuan province and was spotted in a field before the animal was found inside the pig pen, chewing on bones and spitting out the meat.

After eating its fill, the panda quietly left.Although classified as carnivores, the giant pandas’ diet is mainly bamboo, but it also eats other foods including honey, eggs, fish, oranges and bananas when available.Scientists believe there are around 1,600 giant pandas living in the wild in China, mostly in the mountains of the southwest.

The endangered species are considered a national icon and its existence is threatened by logging, agriculture and China’s increasing human population.
