I imagine most men probably find themselves in the same predicament. Even women, they meet some guy who says he’s rich, has a fake Rolex watch and a rented Ferrari.

It’s the game we play.

Dogs have self awarness unprovable until now
User Image
When I became interested in this aspect of ethology I went through the scientific literature and I discovered that, however, the ability to recognize their own image in the mirror is a skill extremely rare in the animal kingdom, - Roberto Cazzolla Gatti said. - Until now, only humans and great apes (gorillas excluded), a single Asian elephant, some dolphins, Eurasian magpies, and some ants have passed the test of mirror self-recognition (MSR). A wide range of species has been observed to fail the test, including several species of monkeys, giant pandas, sea lions, birds, and dogs.

Dogs, in particular, show no interest in looking in the mirror, but usually sniff or urinate around it. Dogs and wolves, like dolphins, show a high level of cognitive complexity, but previous attempts to demonstrate the self-recognition of these animals have been inconclusive.
Attempts to verify this idea have been made before, but most of them were only observational, lacked empirical evidence, or had been carried out only with a single individual and not repeated systematically with other dogs of different sex and age (for example Marc Bekoff in 2001 used a "yellow snow test" to measure how long his dog was sniffing his scent of urine and those of the other dogs in the area). Therefore, the final test of self-recognition in a species as phylogenetically distant from apes (thus with different sensory modalities and communication behavior) as the dog was not obtained.

- So I imagined a new test able to move beyond the mirror version and I called it the ‘sniff test of self-recognition (STSR)’, - the researcher said. - I demonstrated that even when applying it to multiple individuals living in groups and with different ages and sexes, this test provides significant evidence of self-awareness in dogs and can play a crucial role in showing that this capacity is not a specific feature of only great apes, humans, and a few other animals, but it depends on the way in which researchers try to verify it.


This research was conducted with a test performed on four dogs, all strays grown in semi-freedom. Dr. Gatti collected urine samples from each dog and divided and stored them in containers labeled to each dog. Then he submitted the animals to the sniff test of self-recognition. The tests were repeated four times a year, at the beginning of each season. This test is nothing more than a modified version of the mirror test, carried out to check the sense of smell, and not the sight, as the main way to determine self-awareness.

- Then I placed within a fence five urine samples containing the scent of each of the four dogs and a "blank sample", filled only with odorless cotton wool, - Dr. Gatti said. - The containers were then opened and each dog was individually introduced to the inside of the cage and allowed to freely move for five minutes. The time taken by each dog to sniff each sample was recorded.

The result was surprising: all dogs devoted more time to smell the urine samples of the others rather than their own, and this behavior confirmed the hypothesis that dogs seem to know their own smell exactly, they are less interested in their own, and they are therefore self-aware.

In addition, this study shows a correlation between the age of the individual dogs and the time spent to sniff the urine samples, a result that strongly supports the idea that self-awareness increases with age, as demonstrated in other species, such as chimpanzees and humans.

The innovative approach to test the self-awareness with a smell test highlights the need to shift the paradigm of the anthropocentric idea of consciousness to a species-specific perspective. We would never expect that a mole or a bat can recognize themselves in a mirror, but now we have strong empirical evidence to suggest that if species other than primates are tested using chemical or auditory perception, we could get really unexpected results.

From now on, according to the results of this study, it will be more difficult to establish, watching our dog, whether in that moment we are thinking about him or he is thinking about us. Maybe both. It will be, however, easier to recognize that the age of empathy that was anticipated by the great ethologist Frans de Waal has finally arrived.

1300 Additional Clinton Emails Belatedly Discovered Reveal use of Muslim Terrorist Awlaki was Our Guy All Along


User Image

A follow-up search of State Department emails has turned up over 1,300 emails on arch terrorist Anwar Al-Awlaki authored by top aides to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The “belatedly discovered” emails came to light after Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act request, Josh Gerstein writes for Politico.

In November US District Court Judge John Bates refused to expedite the release of five emails referring to al-Awlaki from Clinton’s private account. The State Department argued speeding up the process to release of the emails “would just expand and extrapolate the burden on the State Department” said Justice Department lawyer Stephen Elliott.

“It’s unclear how many of the newly discovered Al-Awlaki-related messages are substantive and how many are news reports forwarded by State officials,” Gerstein writes.

Documents released in October 2014 revealed al-Awlaki had worked with the FBI following the attacks of September 11 2001. His status afforded him special privileges.

Major Player in Terror Plots

According to the government al-Awlaki played a key role in the Fort Hood attack carried out by Major Nidal Malik Hasan, the botched Christmas Day bombing by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, and the foiled Times Square attack attributed to Faisal Shahzad.

He is also said to have inspired the supposed Boston Marathon bombers Tamer­lan and Dzkhokhar Tsar­naev.

Al-Awlaki is connected to other world-be terrorists, including Quazi Nafis who is said to have attempted to bomb the New York Fed­eral Reserve Build­ing and also five men convicted of an abortive plot to attack the Fort Dix army base in New Jersey.

FBI informants played a key role in directing the Fort Dix plot. According to a report published by Mother Jones and the Investigative Reporting Program at the University of California-Berkley, the FBI routinely recruits patsies and encourages them to engage in terror plots. The effort is so blatant even The New York Times reported on it.

In June 2002 a federal judge in Denver signed an arrest warrant for al-Awlaki for passport fraud. Despite this FBI Agent Wade Ammerman ordered al-Awlaki to be released from custody at JFK International Airport when he returned from a trip abroad. The American born cleric was a top CIA target and named a serious threat by the head of Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service at the time.

“There have been so many missed opportunities in getting the bad guys, but it’s one thing to have a bad guy working with you and for you and actually in your custody and then letting them go,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told Fox News.

Al-Awlaki was a lunch guest of military brass at the Pentagon following the 9/11 attacks. Documents obtained by Fox News after the Fort Hood shooting in November 2009 state al-Awlaki was invited to the Pentagon as part of a military outreach program to the Muslim community in the immediate aftermath of the attacks.

He “was considered to be an ‘up and coming’ member of the Islamic community. After her vetting, Aulaqi (Awlaki) was invited to and attended a luncheon at the Pentagon in the secretary of the Army’s Office of Government Counsel.”

The Pentagon visit occurred despite the FBI saying shortly after 9/11 that two of the alleged hijackers had prayed regularly in al-Awlaki’s mosque in San Diego and one of those hijackers and a third attended a mosque he later ran near Washington. He was interviewed by the FBI three times in the weeks following the 9/11 attacks.

In 2003 al-Awlaki talked with FBI Special Agent Icey Jenkins and had her pass a message to Wade Ammerman stating he wanted to arrange a meeting with the agency to dispute his alleged involvement in the attacks.

By 2010 al-Awlaki had apparently served his purpose and was added to the official list of designated terrorists by the US Treasury Department and the United Nations Security Council. After he reportedly issued a video calling for attacks on America, the CIA tracked him down to al-Jawf, Yemen and on September 30, 2011 he was purportedly killed during a drone attack. Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, the 16-year-old son of Anwar, was killed in a separate drone attack two weeks later.

The content of the emails discovered on Clinton’s server was not divulged but considering al-Awlaki’s relationship with the FBI and the Pentagon the emails would certainly be an interesting read.

Hit-And-Run Driver Arrested After Her Car Calls Police
As technology generally continues to advance, one thing you can be sure of is the criminal justice system’s use of innovative new “tools” will grow exponentially. This can be a good thing, but it can also be a very dangerous thing. Pennsylvania’s new law that permits the use of data showing whether people are “deemed likely to commit additional crimes” in criminal sentencing, is a perfect example of how an over reliance on technology can be a threat to liberty and due process.



– From the post: Pennsylvania to Become First State to Use “Precrime” Statistics in Criminal Sentencing

Welcome to the future, ladies and gentleman.

From ZDNet:






A driver allegedly involved in two hit-and-run incidents was tracked down after her car alerted the police.



As reported by local news outlets, an unusual 911 call to emergency services took place on Friday in Port St. Lucie, Florida. You would usually expect a human voice on the end of the line, but in this scenario, a Ford vehicle alerted the police to a collision.



57-year-old woman Cathy Bernstein allegedly hit a truck before ploughing into a van on Prima Vista Boulevard, fleeing the scene after each collision. While Bernstein allegedly ran for the hills, her car had already recorded the crash and automatically contacted 911 after recording the time and date of the collision.



The car’s safety features, used by by Ford, BMW and other automakers, make use of sensors and Internet connectivity to shave down the time emergency responders take to get to the scene of an accident.



As an example, Ford’s SYNC‘s Emergency Assistance portal pushes the car to send a direct call to emergency services when the airbag is deployed or the fuel pump is deactivated — such as when a car suffers a sudden jolt against an object.



The system also gives 911 information including the car model, time, and GPS coordinates.



Usually, this would mean that drivers involved in an accident who are knocked out or cannot reach for their phones can be assisted as quickly as possible. However, in the case of hit-and-run drivers there will be nowhere to hide — as their car may snitch on them. You are automatically linked to a record of a collision’s time, the vehicle involved — and therefore the accompanying registration details — and the location.



By 2018, every new vehicle sold within the grasp of the European Union must have this kind of emergency responder technology installed. While originally planned for 2015, despite delays, the EU says eCall emergency responder technology could save up to 2,500 lives a year.

This picture shows some of the basic connectivity for the navigation of the drone. Much more complex is the telemetry. Given any sets of GPS coordinates this drone could be there. It could provide total telemetry with a video. It could also leave a present such as Amazon wants to do.

So like in the sci-fi thriller (the thing) keep watching the skies, somebody could be watching you!
