Do dogs really look like their owners? Put the theory to the test by trying to guess which dog from the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show belongs to which owner.

The Army hasn't charged Maj. Mathew L. Golsteyn with a crime, but it has thrown him out of Special Forces and stripped him of a prestigious combat award.

Very proud of my paper and the work it does, and blessed to work with great people.
Stars and Stripes, the relatively unknown newspaper subsidized by the Pentagon, gets a big scoop

#UPDATE: More on the failed rescue mission of American hostages, including slain journalist James Foley, over the summer by US troops.

The disclosure of the rescue mission marks the first time the U.S. has revealed that American military personnel have been on the ground in Syria since a bloody civil war there broke out more than three years ago. 
U.S. troops this summer tried to rescue American hostages held by a violent extremist group, including James Foley, but they did not find them, Obama administration officials say.

"Since the repeal of the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy, U.S. military bases have hosted a gay marriage ceremonies and a potluck gatherings. But on Saturday, servicemembers here may have been the first to take to the stage and perform as drag queens on a military installation in support of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender troops.

Drag queens and drag kings, to be precise."

Another thing, as Chimster72 pointed out, Bob Hope and Bing Crosby were NOT enlisted. They were performers brought to the bases for the troops. VERY different than the actual troops dressing in drag.

Web journalism. (h/t @stripesdcchief)
The best headline templates for maximizing readership can quickly become ubiquitous, over-familiar, and cloying to their own writers.

"But as of this month, ask a question as seemingly straightforward as the number of Afghan soldiers and police officers in uniform, and the military coalition offers a singularly unrevealing answer: The information is now considered classified. The American outlay for weapons and gear for Afghan forces? Classified. The cost of teaching Afghan soldiers to read and write? Even that is now a secret." via @joshjonsmith
The American-led coalition regularly shared details on how the money was being put to use, but as of this month the information is now considered classified.

"[Another change is] just how do you manage your experience? Because experience can be a very good thing, but sometimes it can also be a hindrance. You’re not playing as freely, you’re playing the percentages too much. It becomes too calculated. I like to play free-flowing­ tennis. I have to remind myself to play like a junior sometimes."
In a wide-ranging interview with Sports Illustrated, 17-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer marveled at his past, enthused about his present and pondered his future. But not too much.

There probably is no worse time for a Western reporter to be in northern Iraq, but my colleague Seth Robson is undaunted. He's there representing +Stars and Stripes alongside the biggest A-list media outlets, traveling with an award-winning military photog who shoots for us. Worried for him but very proud.

For Maj. Sean Cross, who gained some celebrity from appearances on The Weather Channel series “Hurricane Hunters,” this was to be his first flight into Julio.
While most everyone in Hawaii hunkered down for the arrival of the storm duo of Iselle and Julio in recent days, Air Force Reserve hurricane hunters were crisscrossing through the eyes of the storms.

Story
Introduction
I've been a print journalist, on and off, for the majority of my career, in both news and sports. I started my life in journalism as a part-time sports clerk at the Orlando Sentinel when I was a senior at university. That position eventually transitioned into a full-time copy-editing and page-design job when I graduated with a B.A. in journalism and minor in computer science. That was when the World Wide Web was still "browsed" with a text-only browser called Lynx. I hopped on board the 'Net in 1993 with the first computer I bought on my own, a Macintosh Quadra 605 (the first my family owned -- and the first one I taught myself simple BASIC coding on -- was an IBM PCJr).

Meanwhile, my interests outside of journalism include rowing, fitness and working out, so I decided my journalism backup plan would be to become a sports and medical massage therapist and work with athletes at local 5Ks and rowing events. So several years ago, I went to and graduated from massage school and became a licensed massage therapist (Florida license #MA44501).

It's an odd juxtaposition, but I'm blessed to have been able to pursue that second career. I currently have my hands back in career No. 1, so to speak, all the while keeping my massage license up to date "just in case." Time will tell how long my second stint in journalism lasts, but I'm enjoying it so far.

I'm a curator of content on science, animals, nature, journalism, technology and rowing. Just warning you. (And I actually am amused by animated GIFs, but I promise not to innundate you with those.)
