Food Science

Simply put, food science is an advanced discipline that seeks to understand various aspects of food. Nutritionists, engineers and food technologists have for a long time been interested in understanding how food products come to be, how they are grown and how their pedigree can be improved to provide greater quality at the processing stage. In doing so, scientists manage to keep existing delicacies at their peak condition and improve on low quality strains of particular products.

Food science extends beyond the basic practice of analyzing various products for their components and seeks to understand the distribution of vitamins, enzymes and minerals in every single grain. It also involves laying down scenarios for processing, preservation, packaging and the modification of food substances to fit into certain marketing and consumption profiles. Experts tasked with injecting new foods and diversifying existing varieties work to ensure that the right health protocols are followed in every single step of their work. This probably explains the presence of professional associations in the field.

Dog grooming is a must!

Bath your furry friend with special dog shampoo as often as needed. Not only will it keep your dog smelling nice and keep its skin clean, but it will also prevent your canine from too much licking and scratching, causing hairless patches or sore spots. Be sure to brush your dog before each bath in order to get all of the mats and tangles out of its coat. It is recommended to get your dog professionally groomed from head-to-tail every 4 to 8 weeks, not only to keep him or her clean and healthy, but also to keep nasty fleas and ticks out of the fur.

Discover Horse Clicker Training

Clicker training which originally came from the scientific term operant conditioning, is a slang name. It was originally used to train aquatic mammals, has continuously becoming more distinguished in training horses with its positive reinforcement.

Horse Clicker TrainingPositive reinforcement is given when the action that the trainer wants the animal to repeat is done properly. The concept of operant conditioning in psychology is where an animal learns a particular behavior or a task where reward is given for accomplished action. However, for the undesirable behavior or actions done by the animal aren’t rewarded and ignored. Therefore by giving rewards for getting things right make these horses more excited and fast in their learning.

Clicker training is a great tool to embrace other training methods. All you need to be started is a clicker, some treats, and a container for the rewards. Once you have got them, your horse is now on its way to obedience. There are no set rules to pursue when using the clicker training but the following will guide you to use this method to your advantage.

Condition it with the sound of the ‘click.’

Your horse has to know that the sound ‘click’ means a reward is coming. First try to click your clicker for a few times and reward it with a treat every time it hears the sound. After about 10-15 minutes, you must repeat the sequence of clicking followed by treating. Some horses may need more sessions, but there are horses that easily get accustomed to the clicker training after three sequences.

Cat House Training Tips

Cat House TrainingThey are playful, energetic, adorable, and they mesmerize us with their cute eyes. Kittens are irresistible and do not seem much of a problem, until they make your home, theirs.

With proper training, most of your kitten’s unacceptable behaviour problems can be changed. Jumping up on the dining room table, sharpening their claws on new furniture, scratching your windows, biting, or chewing are all behaviours that can be altered and/or eliminated. All you have to do is think like a kitten and find ways to divert the annoying habits.

Cats are hunters, even the domesticated ones. They like to chase anything that moves, from feet underneath a bed sheet to birds, mice, rabbits, spiders, or other insects. They are not afraid of heights and will do anything to get to their prey, even attempt to get to the highest place in the house. Because cats can misjudge their capabilities, many injuries will come from your feline trying to get to, or away from, these elevated observation towers. If your cat has that particular adventurous streak and seeks out wall shelving, the top of your fridge, or any other high spot, make sure that it has a safe way to get there, or that you somehow block that area off.

Animal Care and Diseases

A condition which influences an animal’s health and ability to function is called a disease. Indeed, like humans, animals can become sick and may require surgery at an animal hospital, proper medication prescribed by a veterinarian, and lots of care at home to get better.

Pet owners love their companions and when the animals happen to get sick, they worry. When initial small behavioral changes were treated with simple, over the counter medication it may have brought relief to the animal, but if the symptoms keep persisting or get worse, it is best to book an appointment with the local veterinarian.

Game Changing ‘Biowire’ Technology developed by Canadian Cardiovascular Research Team

researchMilica Radisic and her team recently announced in the scientific journal, Nature Methods, that they have developed a new method of maturing human heart cells by applying electrical pulses to the cells, in a pattern that mimics the fetal cardiac development of humans. The new technology, called ‘Biowire’ uses silk sutures to grow human heart cells which are mature enough to be used in research and transplantation. Electrical pulse is applied to the cardiomyocytes that mimics the fetal heart rate of humans to stimulate a natural environment for the heart cells to mature in. This new process has achieved much better results than previous methods to mature stem cells derived from human caridomyocytes.

Radisic, who is the Canada Research Chair in Functional Cardiovascular Tissue Engineering, was named a “Top Innovator under 35″ by MIT Technology Review and has received the Order of Ontario and the Young Engineers of Canada 2012 Achievement Award. Her team included Dr. Sara Nunes, a scientist and cardiac and vascularization specialist at the University Health Network (UHN) Toronto, and Jason Miklas, a graduate student at the University of Toronto.

Commute by Electric Skateboard…Using Brain Power?

electronic skateboard When considering electric transportation methods, a skateboard usually isn’t the first set of wheels that comes to mind. However, thanks to the advent of new technology, the long-time vehicle of choice by kids and rebel teens alike has shone a new light on daily commuting. Some of the latest decks are equipped with remote control devices, as well as the ability to be controlled by the mind.

When 50% of the world’s car trips are under five miles, and public transportation systems often leave the passengers walking the last mile to their destinations, it’s no wonder manufacturers are looking to market the electric skateboard as an eco-friendly alternative to getting around traffic while saving gas. It’s becoming a great commuting option for those with balance, according to William Hurley, co-founder of electric boarding pioneers, Chaotic Moon. “In fact,” Hurley remarks, “Several companies have emerged in the past two years in attempt to grab a piece of this growing market.” He mentions that the two largest trends in the market are controlling devices and battery options.

Infectious animal diseases are caused by agents, such as a virus or bacteria, which penetrate the body and disrupt its natural defense mechanism. Noninfectious diseases, on the other hand, are caused by factors such as diet, environment, emotional distress, injury, and some heredity conditions.
Dog grooming When it comes to grooming, such as brushing, clipping and bathing, it is not just about keeping your loving companion looking beautiful, it is also about keeping your dog physiologically and psychologically healthy and offering it an extra chance to bond with you. A grooming ritual should include bathing, ear cleaning, as well as coat, nail and teeth maintenance.

Dry Or Wet Cat Food?

Cats are meat eaters, and even though commercially prepared food is formulated to address their specific nutritional needs, most store-bought cat food will contain both animal and plant materials, supplemented with vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients.
