The Food and Drug Administration is warning that a sweetener called Xylitol, which can be found in many sugar free gums, is poisonous to dogs. Although humans may consume this sweetener without issue, it has been found that it can potentially be fatal to your canine companions, and dog owners should be extra vigilant when it comes to this ingredient.
If a dog ingests the artificial sweetener, it can cause a spike of insulin to be released from its pancreas, making the dog’s blood sugar plummet to sometimes fatal levels. Symptoms that your dog is having a reaction to the sweetener include fatigue, vomiting, staggering, collapsing, and seizures. If you suspect your dog has ingested Xylitol, take him or her to the vet right away, as it is potentially a life-threatening emergency.
The number of instances of poisoning from the ingredient has risen over 3000 percent int he past decade, mostly because Xylitol is now present in many more foods and non-food items. Although it is most commonly found in chewing gum, it can also be present in items like toothpastes and peanut butter.

Additionally, for those in and around Nice, we’ve published a Google Now card with critical updates from French authorities, and we’ll continue to update it as new information becomes available.
Now, with the update today you just drag your finger on the space bar and it will move your cursor!!! Mind Blown!
To delete any of your posts in any Space, click on the dots at the time/date stamp, upper right. Less clunky than going to Settings, Activity Log where you still have to go to delete a comment.
Edit: MUST be done from the Space Stream. The feature doesn't show when you open your post.
To access info/profile for a Space owner or member, click the people area at the top of the Space, then scroll to the person and click on their picture. Yes, it's clunky as hell and slow to respond. But it works on the app. Haven't tested via desktop. Had to click several times to get it to pop up.
