Pit Bulls in Chicago – UPchicago.com

Breed-specific legislation, or BSL, is the route some municipalities have taken in an attempt to curb attacks by “vicious” dogs. This is based on appearance of the dog, as DNA testing of dogs, while available, is expensive, not to mention complicated when you start analyzing mutts. American Pit Bull Terriers, Staffordshire Terriers, German Shepherds, Doberman Pinschers, and Rottweilers are among the most common targets of BSL. Breed bans are in effect in many cities, some mandating that owners of certain breeds carry more insurance or build higher fences, to an outright ban, as in Denver, [more...]

It’s supposed to provide an idea of how well you would do at a certain profession or how well you would perform in academics. The entire idea of the IQ test is to assess the maximum potential of your brains using a variety of problems.

Campus DNA Testing Program Will Not Release Individual Results ...

"Most of the benefit of this program has already been had because every single student that opened an envelope had to make the judgement for themselves 'do i want to subject myself to genetic testing,'" he said. "That's a really important lesson because the first thing they encounter, with respect to Berkeley, is that really smart well trained people can reach different decisions based upon the same information." And the program has certainly stimulated thought and debate about the topic of DNA testing among more than just students. Controversy has buzzed across the country since the program [more...]

Charlie Chaplin: Victim of Paternity Fraud « dupeddads.org

The other day a friend of mine told me that he remembered that Charlie Chaplin (pictured) had been a victim of paternity fraud during the 1940s. We looked it up and sure enough, it was true. According to Wikipedia: “Chaplin had a brief affair with Joan Barry (1920-1996) in 1942, whom he was considering for a starring role in a proposed film, but the relationship ended when she began harassing him and displaying signs of severe mental illness (not unlike his mother). “Chaplin’s brief involvement with Barry proved to be a nightmare for him. After having a child, she filed a paternity [more...]

Driving test change introduces 'independent' section

"The test is being improved to help produce safer drivers, but that doesn't mean it's getting any harder. We know many instructors are already teaching independent driving." 'Necessary skills' Peter Rodger, chief examiner of the Institute of Advanced Motorists, welcomed the change and said it would indicate how candidates coped with "an integral part of day-to-day driving". But he urged the DSA to make testing on rural roads a compulsory element of the test, saying research has shown up to 75% of accidents take place there. Road safety minister Mike Penning said: "We want all new drivers [more...]
