In a display of stunningly bad timing given all the comments people have been posting here in recent days, the entire ScienceBlogs network will be down from 1pm today until sometime Saturday (or whenever they’re done) for a system upgrade. I won’t be able to post, and readers won’t be able to comment, until the system is back online (alas). If there’s some pressing breaking news while this network is down, I’ll post it on my old blog here. But I doubt that will happen. Please check back in a day or so to post your comments or, if you simply can’t wait, you can email them to me via the address on my “contact” page.
Here are links to a few Public Radio interviews I did this week: Here and Now on the service animal species ban. Word of Mouth on the latest developments (mac users listen here). And Day to Day on the wide range of animals being used to help the disabled.
And for all those who wonder if it’s really possible to train a horse to ride in a car, or fetch a beer from the refrigerator, I give you this very strange video. Of all the bizarre and somewhat disturbing things in it, oddly, the horse eating a hamburger may be the creepiest for me (um, horse eating cow???). Overall: Seriously weird.
