THE WINNER OF THE NATIONAL HERO DOG OF THE YEAR HAS JUST BEEN ANNOUNCED -- THE WINNER... TARA, A 7 YEAR OLD TABBY CAT

There was a stunning surprise today when the local chapter of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals presented its annual National Hero Dog Award.

The winner was a cat.

Tara, a 7-year-old tabby from Bakersfield, bested “man’s best friend” to claim the award and its accompanying prize -- which was adjusted from a year’s supply of dog food to 12 months’ worth of cat chow, courtesy of PurinaOne.

Tara was honored for risking one of her nine lives on May 13, 2014, when 5-year-old Jeremy Triantafilo was attacked by a neighbor’s dog while playing in the family’s front yard. The dog bit Jeremy in a leg, pulled him off his bike and began shaking him.

Size Does Matter

Cats and Summer Time

We all know how much cats love to sunbathe and chase flying insects around the garden, so here are a few tips to help keep your cat safe.
Cats get sunburn too!

I know all of our cats love to lie in the garden all day if it's sunny and who can blame them?

Cats who have pale ears and noses are at risk from getting sunburn just as we are; they can even get skin cancer.

To help prevent this try and keep your cats in during the hottest hours of the day (11am – 2pm), if this is not possible you can put sunscreen on their ears and noses.

Ask your vet which type of sunscreen is safe to put on your cat. You need to obtain a non-toxic brand or buy a specialist brand just for pets, since your cat is likely to lick some of it off. Using it is very straightforward, just apply to the ears andn... more »

Ask your vet which type of sunscreen is safe to put on your cat. You need to obtain a non-toxic brand or buy a specialist brand just for pets, since your cat is likely to lick some of it off. Using it is very straightforward, just apply to the ears and nose a few times a day.
Bee & Wasp stings

They fly, so as far as your cat is concerned, it's potential prey, but if your cat is stung in the mouth or throat it could cause swelling and block the airway.

If your cat is stung in the mouth/throat take it to the vets straight away.

Cats are often stung on the paws, which can be treated at home:
Bee stings are acidic so carefully remove the sting and bathe in Bicarbonate of soda and water.
Wasp stings are alkaline so bathe the area in vinegar or lemon juice.
Heatstroke

If you suspect your cat has heatstroke you must act quickly, symptoms of heatstroke include:
Panting
Drooling
Anxiety
Dark red tongue and gums
Lethargy
Vomiting

If your cat displays these symptoms get it into a cool area, and wrap it up in a cold wet towel and phone your vet as soon as possible.
Follow these tips and your cat should be able to play happily out in the sunshine for the rest of the summer.

Orange-winged Parrot!

Orange-winged Parrot, Lora Amazónica, or Loro Guaro (Amazona amazonica).

Exclusively found in the lowlands east of the Andes, Orange-winged Parrot is distributed from northern Colombia south to eastern Brazil, including the islands of Trinidad and Tobago. In contrast to many parrots, which have declined massively as a result of hunting, trade and habitat destruction, the Orange-winged Parrot remains surprisingly abundant over much of its very wide South American range.

Escape Problems Forever
“The wisdom realizing emptiness gives us the possibility to escape from problems forever,” said Lama Zopa Rinpoche in a 1990 teaching in Florence, Italy. “Achieving this ultimate happiness mainly depends on this realization. As I mentioned before, only the wisdom realizing emptiness can directly eradicate the ignorance which is the root of the whole samsaric suffering.Therefore, we should feel extremely fortunate and attempt to learn more, to listen, reflect and meditate more. As much as possible, in our everyday life we should attempt to meditate on emptiness even for a minute or a few seconds, especially once we have heard teachings that reveal the unmistaken view and we have some basic understanding of what ultimate nature means. Realizing emptiness gives us the opportunity to be free from the whole of samsara and all suffering.

Escape Problems Forever
“The wisdom realizing emptiness gives us the possibility to escape from problems forever,” said Lama Zopa Rinpoche in a 1990 teaching in Florence, Italy. “Achieving this ultimate happiness mainly depends on this realization. As I mentioned before, only the wisdom realizing emptiness can directly eradicate the ignorance which is the root of the whole samsaric suffering.Therefore, we should feel extremely fortunate and attempt to learn more, to listen, reflect and meditate more. As much as possible, in our everyday life we should attempt to meditate on emptiness even for a minute or a few seconds, especially once we have heard teachings that reveal the unmistaken view and we have some basic understanding of what ultimate nature means. Realizing emptiness gives us the opportunity to be free from the whole of samsara and all suffering.

“So, we should not waste time, we should not waste the opportunity. We must meditate as often as possible, even for a few seconds. We must meditate. Not meditating on emptiness, or not even remembering it for even one day is a great loss. Meditating on emptiness itself becomes great purification. For example, when it comes to purification methods in tantra and sutra, reading the Prajñaparamita teachings is one of the methods. Meditating on emptiness is one of the most powerful purifications.

“Even if you are doing Vajrasattva meditation, you are still advised to remember emptiness. The Vajrasattva recitation-purification becomes very powerful by remembering emptiness. Making offerings to these scriptures or copying them and meditating on them, are all regarded as very powerful purification practices. Anyway, you should not waste the opportunity, especially if you have studied these teachings and have some basic understanding of them. Even rising doubts about emptiness has a great effect – it shatters samsara into pieces.”

Excerpted from “Meditation on Emptiness and Tong-len (Taking and Giving)” (http://bit.ly/meditation-on-emptiness-and-tong-len) made available by the Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive.

Rinpoche Prays for Those Suffering after Second Nepal Earthquake
A second big earthquake has hit Nepal. Ven Roger Kunsang writes:


“The earthquake hit near Everest and Namche. The first measured 7.4, and then there was another soon after. I have talked to Kopan and others in Nepal, and in brief this is what we know so far in relation to FPMT …



Kopan and Khachoe Ghakyil monks and nuns are all fine (the ones who were at the monastery and nunnery); buildings have more damage … cracks are bigger in some place but nothing actually collapsed.
Lawudo- Ani la Ngawang Samten (Rinpoche’s sister) and others, no serious harm but shaken up a little. Ani la said a lot of damage this time in Khumbu area. The main gompa at Lawudo has collapsed … the wall on the kitchen side, other damage also in other areas of Lawudo. Now the place is in a pretty badstate.... more »

Ganden Yiga Chozin, Pokhara – Drolkar says she and others are fine.
Thame area … more houses collapsed, so far have not heard of serious harm or deaths.
Other areas … Tsum, Jalsa and HBMC … haven’t got updates yet.
Kathmandu has had a lot of houses and buildings collapse … initially they are saying that there seems to be more damage than the first quake … they say many of the houses that got damaged but didn’t collapse now have collapsed.

People were just starting to get moving again … now they are really shaken up .. the reality of possibly more to come is strong.”


Ven Fran writes from Kopan Monastery:
“We are all okay, sitting in the garden and making jokes how we are now earthquake qualified.
But it was scary again, nearly as strong as the first one. No more additional damage at Kopan, but in Kathmandu, a lot of half broken houses now completely collapsed. We could see the dust clouds rising directly after the earthquake.”


Lama Zopa Rinpoche has been doing prayers with students in New Zealand.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche Teaches at Mahamudra Centre [Video]

Lama Zopa Rinpoche began teaching in New Zealand over the weekend at Mahamudra Centre. Rinpoche taught on “Working for Peace – Pacifying Inner and Outer Turmoil.”


Rinpoche also reconsecrated the stupa at Mahamudra Centre. Due to water leaking into the central chamber of the stupa and creating serious damage to the contents, the stupa had to be repaired and resealed as well as completely refilled and redecorated in 2012.

Mama Cat Adopts an Orphaned Squirrel Baby

When animal rescue workers introduced an orphaned squirrel to a mother cat and her family of kittens, the cats’ reaction was hardly something you’d expect. Instead of hissing at the squirrel or acting out aggressively, the mother cat takes the baby squirrel in as one of her own!

The little fur family seems to not only accept the squirrel’s presence, but they also don’t seem to notice that he is any different than they are. When it comes to caring for a fur-baby in need, species simply does not matter.

Thanks to the care of his adoptive mother, this little squirrel will grow up nice and strong. We can only hope that he will be able to return to the wild soon!

Orange Tulips Bloom

Day 3/5 of #fivedaysbokehchallenge to which I was kindly invited by my dear friend +Fior de' Alba who brings love and light to the world through her photography and personality.

This photo is dedicated to all my friends that have followed me and especially to +Fior de' Alba for inviting me to participate in this challenge.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche Begins Teaching Tour, Emergency Relief Arrives in Thame

After completing the Most Secret Hayagriva initiation late at night on May 3, Lama Zopa Rinpoche departed from Kopan Monastery in Nepal on May 4 to begin a worldwide teaching tour. Rinpoche travels first to New Zealand’s Mahamudra Centre, where he is scheduled to teach May 9-10.


The Most Secret Hayagriva initiation at Kopan Monastery had been scheduled for April 27-30. Even after the devastating earthquake of April 25, Rinpoche decided to offer the initiation, which was given in the main gompa at Kopan Monastery, beginning on the evening of May 2.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche Begins Teaching Tour, Emergency Relief Arrives in Thame

Kopan Monastery monks continue to lead emergency relief efforts, going out to offer aid packages to people in villages outside of Kathmandu. They are coordinating their efforts with Losang Namgyal Rinpoche’s organization and together hundreds of families are receiving emergency aid in a direct and organized way.


On May 1, the first shipment of aid arrived in Thame, the birthplace of Lama Zopa Rinpoche located near Lawudo Gompa in the remote Solu Khumbu district. Five Kopan monks traveled with the supplies, which were flown to Lukla and then helicoptered to Thame. The monks helped organize the distribution of tents for 190 families. Most structures in the area received significant damage making them uninhabitable. 



Lama Zopa Rinpoche offered US$50,000 through FPMT’s Nepal Earthquake Support Fund for emergency relief in Thame. Cherok Lama Sherpa, who is also from the area, is raising money and contributing to this relief effort as well. A second shipment of food is being organized and will be delivered as soon as possible. Cherok Lama Sherpa will be arriving in the area this week to personally offer help and view the destruction.

..:: Natures Window ::..

I have just returned from spending a couple of relaxing nights in the Blue Mountains with my family. Of course I couldn't just chill out the whole time so I done some exploring and discovered some new locations to shoot up here during the next workshop I host in August. It's no secret I am a sucker for caves and natural windows so I was pretty stoked to spend some time in this beautiful location overlooking the Kings Tableland. I am so grateful for photography which has revealed to me many moments such as this.

Video of Kopan Monastery after the Earthquake

Phil Hunt, coordinator for the Animal Liberation Sanctuary, a project of Kopan Monastery, was enroute to Nepal when the earthquake struck on Saturday, April 25. He arrived safely in Kathmandu on Sunday, April 26, and traveled up to Kopan Monastery. 


“At Kopan Monastery the monks and international visitors were outside, most gathered at the open stupa garden in a mini tent city,” Phil wrote for the organization Tree of Compassion. “Damage was minimal but several of the older buildings had some serious cracking and slipping and were no-go areas.

“I found Pema the Animal Liberation Sanctuary manager and he confirmed our earlier email notification that the animals were fine and the structures unharmed. I visited the cows, who had just started to come into the shed, including Kalden, the calf who we rescued from the street in January and who had a most amazing recovery from terrible wounds after being attacked by dogs.


“I put my bags away and found a place in a tent for the night ahead. Lama Zopa Rinpoche, the founder and spiritual director of the monastery and the international Buddhist organization FPMT, not to mention the rescuer of the majority of the animals at the ALS, was sitting on a chair under a tree talking to visitors and later gave a teaching. …”


Phil shared a short video of Rinpoche and the enlightenment garden at Kopan on the day after the earthquake on YouTube:

Over time, these deposits forming real natural dams that act as barriers to water, growing by about a centimeter per year. At one point the water pressure breaks these natural levees, opening new paths in the ground.
This mechanism, in fact common to all the calcareous water, in Plitvice has assumed a particular importance.
The beauty of the National Park Plitvice, Croatia, is increased in the second round of the New Seven Wonders of Nature.

There are two polar vortices in the atmosphere of planet Earth, one around the North Pole, and one around the South Pole. Each polar vortex is a persistent, large-scale cyclone, circling the planet's geographical poles. The bases of the two polar vortices are located in the middle and upper troposphere and extend into the stratosphere. They surround the polar highs and lie in the wake of the polar front.

As with other cyclones, their rotation is caused by the Coriolis effect
