I think people are worried about their pets becoming coy-chow.
If they can make it here, they'll make it anywhere.

The Underground Market-Driven Truth About Africa's Rhino War
Good read!
“Maybe Asia would take notice if Africans advertised panda hunts. See how they like that,” said Brian Gaisford, president of Hemingway Gallery and Safaris. He doesn’t mean that, of course. Brian is a globetrotting conservationist, even a bit of an activist. He said this just after coming back from the front [...]

When Avatar came out, James Cameron boasted that it would be the first solar-powered movie franchise in history. Now the director, deep-sea explorer, NASA advisor, and all around badass has turned his attention to designing cinematic-quality solar panels for the rest of us.

Leopard Attacks Safari Guide
In the Kruger National Park, you're supposed to have keep your car doors locked and windows closed. Having a wide open tour bus like that is asking for trouble. The KNP needs to review it's rules and regulations regarding open safari vehicles. The sad outcome of this is that a beautiful animal had to be put down.

Crazy X-Ray Images: See a Python Digest an Alligator Over the Course of a Week

Martial arts instructor; student of the martial arts; scholar warrior; mainframe geek
Introduction
Although I've been a martial arts instructor in Taiji (Tai Chi), Qigong, Daoyin, Ryukyu Kobujutsu (Kobudo) & Karate Jutsu for over 40 years, I still consider myself a student of the martial arts.  My outlook in life is that of a scholar warrior with the basic philosophy that you study the old to understand the new.  Currently I'm the Chief Instructor at Yuishinkai Kobujutsu USA, and a Branch Chief in USA for both Yuishinkai and Ryukyu Kobujutsu Hozon Shinko Kai.

For my martial art postings, please check and circle my G+ pages Martial Arts with Colman and Yuishinkai Kobujutsu USA.

For other information about my interest in the martial arts, please check my website Martial Arts with Colman.

I'm also interested in any technology that makes things easier.
Bragging rights
My family who have put up with me. My students who have stuck with me all these years. My martial art teachers who had accepted me as their student. The absolute experience of actually having trained under my teacher Shifu/Shihan Edward Jardine's teachers, most notably Grandmaster Duan Yu-Chang and Inoue Gansho (Motokatsu) O'Sensei.
