Each morning, like clockwork, they board the subway, off to begin their daily routine amidst the hustle and bustle of the city.

But these aren't just any daily commuters. These are stray dogs who live in the outskirts of Moscow Russia and commute on the underground trains to and from the city centre in search of food scraps.

Then after a hard day scavenging and begging on the streets, they hop back on the train and return to the suburbs where they spend the night.

Experts studying the dogs, who usually choose the quietest carriages at the front and back of the train, say they even work together to make sure they get off at the right stop – after learning to judge the length of time they need to spend on the train.

Scientists believe this phenomenon began after the Soviet Union collapsed in the 1990s, and Russia’s new capitalists moved industrial complexes from the city centre to the suburbs.

Dr Andrei Poiarkov, of the Moscow Ecology and Evolution Institute, said: “These complexes were used by homeless dogs as shelters, so the dogs had to move together with their houses. Because the best scavenging for food is in the city centre, the dogs had to learn how to travel on the subway – to get to the centre in the morning, then back home in the evening, just like people.”

Dr Poiarkov told how the dogs like to play during their daily commute. He said: “They jump on the train seconds before the doors shut, risking their tails getting jammed. They do it for fun. And sometimes they fall asleep and get off at the wrong stop.”

The dogs have also amazingly learned to use traffic lights to cross the road safely, said Dr Poiarkov. And they use cunning tactics to obtain tasty morsels of shawarma, a kebab-like snack popular in Moscow.

With children the dogs “play cute” by putting their heads on youngsters’ knees and staring pleadingly into their eyes to win sympathy – and scraps.

Dr Poiarkov added: “Dogs are surprisingly good psychologists.”

Grundsätzlich erscheint mir jede Verbesserung des ÖPNV im ländlichen Bereich ein Schritt in die richtige Richtung.

Silk allows customers to trace the origin of the used soybeans in the product.

I think that's a really neat idea and should be copied by other producers too. Just allow the customer to check where the fruits or vegetables come frome. A lot of companies might already have the information available, especially those selling organic products.It just takes transparency to a new level.

That's unfortunate. At least Google Takeout makes it convenient to save and transfer all the feed settings to a new client.

Tough Mudder kommt nach Deutschland!

Trotz leichter Skepsis zu meinem Trainingsstand: Dazu würde ich mich überreden lassen. Ohne Team ist eine Teilnahme allerdings schwierig. Wer kommt mit?

13./14. Juli irgendwo bei Düsseldorf oder 26./27. Oktober irgendwo bei Berlin. Hier zur Einstimmung: Tough Mudder Deutschland 2013.
