    "Over the weekend, Jared Kushner was credited with negotiating a $110 billion arms deal to the Saudis, the largest arms deal in U.S. history:

    The deal was finalized in part thanks to the direct involvement of Jared Kushner, the President's son-in-law and senior adviser. He shocked a high-level Saudi delegation earlier this month when he personally called Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson and asked if she would cut the price of a sophisticated missile detection system, according to a source with knowledge of the call.

    Pressured to finalize a massive $100-plus billion arms deal in the two weeks leading up to Trump's trip to Saudi Arabia, Kushner hoped to maneuver a discount on Lockheed's Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system during the Saudis' visit to the White House on May 1 -- a request that Hewson said she would look into at the time" ...

    Makes sense ...




    Stressed out? Your dog may feel it too, study suggests


    NEW YORK (AP) — "When dog owners go through a stressful period, they’re not alone in feeling the pressure — their dogs feel it too, a new study suggests.

    Dog owners experiencing long bouts of stress can transfer it to their dogs, scientists report in a study published Thursday in Scientific Reports.

    The Swedish researchers focused on 58 people who own border collies or Shetland sheepdogs. They examined hair from the dog owners and their dogs, looking at the concentrations of a hormone called cortisol, a chemical released into the bloodstream and absorbed by hair follicles in response to stress.

    Depression, excessive physical exercise and unemployment are just a few examples of stress that can influence the amount of cortisol found in your hair, said Lina Roth of Linkoping University in Sweden.

    Roth and her team found that the patterns of cortisol levels in the hair of dog owners closely matched that found in their dogs in both winter and summer months, indicating their stress levels were in sync.

    She thinks the owners are influencing the dogs rather than the other way around because several human personality traits appear to affect canine cortisol levels.

    The researchers don’t know what causes the synchronization in cortisol levels between humans and their pups. But a hint might lie in the fact that the link is stronger with competitive dogs than in pet pooches.

    The bond formed between owner and competitive dogs during training may increase the canines’ emotional reliance on their owners, she said. That in turn could increase the degree of synchronization.

    But why do people influence their dogs rather than vice versa? Perhaps people are “a more central part of the dog’s life, whereas we humans also have other social networks,” Roth said in an email.

    The study results are no surprise, said Alicia Buttner, director of animal behavior with the Nebraska Humane Society in Omaha.

    “New evidence is continually emerging, showing that people and their dogs have incredibly close bonds that resemble the ones that parents share with their children,” she said in an email.

    But she said there isn’t enough evidence to assume that the influence goes only one way; it may go both ways.

    “It’s not just as simple as owner gets stressed, dog gets stressed,” she said.

    Many other factors could affect a person or dog’s stress levels and possibly even dampen them, she said.

    Buttner said cortisol levels don’t necessarily indicate “bad” stress. They instead can indicate a good experience like getting ready to go for a walk, she said.

    Roth and her team plan to investigate whether other dog breeds will react to their owners the same way.

    In the meantime, she offered advice to minimize how much stress dog owners may be causing their pets. Dogs that play more show fewer signs of being stressed, she said.

    So “just be with your dog and have fun,” Roth said."

    I totally agree with this. When I lost my Great Pyrenees it was almost as hard as the day I lost my Mother. I don't know if that makes me sound weird but we were closely bonded. He knew if I was having a bad day and was always by my side. I still have a hard time even looking at pictures of him without becoming an emotional mess.

    Thinking

    After several seasons while 'Up at the Ranch' working and serving these UFO rock star types ...
    I soon grew weary of the hype and nonsense of the ever growing spectacle of it all ...

    Back in 2013 - I began referring (and posting) on Avalon to it as the seasonal 'UFO Circus' ...

    Low and behold it caught on - Back then this melody of songs/lyrics inspired that labeling.

    Contact is and has been real for many experiencers - the rest is bullshit !
