AKC CGC – Canine Good Citizen Test Center – Feb 22nd

AKC CGC – Canine Good Citizen Test Center – Feb 22nd
Event on 2017-02-22 18:00:00
Canine Good Citizen testing by invitation only. You will be contacted with your appointment time. Please arrive early. The AKC's Canine Good Citizen program is recognized as the gold standard for dog behavior. In CGC, dogs who pass the 10 step CGC test can earn a certificate and/or the official AKC CGC title. Dogs with the CGC title have the suffix, "CGC" after their names. The Canine Good Citizen Program lays the foundation for other AKC activities such as obedience, agility, tracking, and performance events. As you work with your dog to teach the CGC skills, you'll discover the many benefits and joys of training your dog. Training will enhance the bond between you and your dog. Dogs who have a solid obedience education are a joy to live with-they respond well to household routines, have good manners in the presence of people and other dogs, and they fully enjoy the company of the owner who took the time to provide training, intellectual stimulation, and a high quality life. We sincerely hope that CGC will be only a beginning for you and your dog and that after passing the CGC test, you'll continue training in obedience, agility, tracking, or performance events.

Answer by oklatom
My crystal ball is in the shop being polished, so you will have to give a clue as to where you are. You know, like a country, or a state if you’re in the US…

And I suspect you mean “air brake”, not break, which means to smash violently.

But if you would like to see a practice test on air brakes, have a look here. http://www.truckercountry.com/cdl-air-brakes-test.html

Preview:

Whether last week’s result at The Oval was attributable to poor batting from England or outstanding bowling from Pakistan – and the truth invariably lies somewhere in between – it is a fact nonetheless that England’s dominance in this series, taken somewhat for granted as they coasted to a 2-0 lead with a nine-wicket win in the second Test at Edgbaston, is nowhere near as absolute as it might have once appeared. In fact, as the series finale looms at an overcast (and therefore swing-friendly) Lord’s, it might even be described as precarious.

Pakistan vs England live streaming of 4th test from Lords, internet cricket tv broadcast august 26-30

Thanks to an ever-diminishing series of team totals, which have drifted downwards from a decent 354 in the first Test at Trent Bridge to an insubstantial 222 at The Oval, the focus has fallen on England’s batsmen to a degree not seen since they crashed to 102 all out at Headingley in the penultimate Test against Australia last summer. Then, of course, they battled back from a series-squaring innings defeat to claim the Ashes one match later with a hefty victory at The Oval, and all was forgiven. The challenge now, in England’s final Test before the squad to tour Down Under is finalised, is to re-harness those powers of bouncebackability.

“It certainly wasn’t the worst game we’ve had since I took charge,” said England’s captain, Andrew Strauss. “We’ve had some poor performances in the past, but we lost the game and that was disappointing because we should have been better than that. There are lessons to be learnt from The Oval and there’s a pretty strong determination within the group to prove that that was a one-off and that we’re better than we showed [in that match]. That’s a pretty good state of mind to have, because generally, when we’ve had that state of mind, we’ve done well.”

England, to be fair, have long had a pretty healthy record in that regard. It wasn’t until the penultimate year of Michael Vaughan’s reign, against India in 2007, that he relinquished his record of following every Test defeat with a victory at the next attempt, and while Andrew Strauss hasn’t quite attained those standards, he’s nevertheless started pretty healthily with a draw and two victories following his three previous defeats as England captain.

However, given that England bowled Pakistan out for 80 and 72 in the first two Tests at Trent Bridge and Edgbaston, last week’s defeat has to rate as the most unexpected yet of Strauss’s captaincy career – even ahead of the infamous 51 all out in Sabina Park 18 months ago, for the speed of that second-innings capitulation was at least in keeping with the pervading mood of crisis that had gripped the England squad since the falling-out between Kevin Pietersen and Peter Moores. The Oval reversal, on the other hand, has awakened issues that had been allowed to pass unnoticed during a misleadingly comfortable run of six Test wins in a row – and need to be addressed rather urgently.

“We haven’t batted brilliantly, but it’s hard to score 500 on a pitch that’s doing a lot,” said Strauss. “There was less excuse at The Oval because that was a pretty good batting wicket, but when you as a side are scoring 200 on a pitch where the opposition are being bowled out for 80, you’ve done a reasonably good job. It would be wrong to bury our heads in the sand and say everything is fine, but I’m very satisfied with the batting group generally. The key is to make sure that if you do lose a wicket, the next guy that comes in establishes himself at the crease and doesn’t allow the opposition to build some strong momentum.”

For Strauss himself, there’s an extra pressure looming in this match, partly as a result of Alastair Cook’s success in quelling the calls for his head by reaching a personally invaluable century in that Oval defeat, and partly as a consequence of Strauss’s own struggle for form this summer. As was the case against India in 2007, when he was dropped from the team following a prolonged slump, he’s been dismissed by a left-arm seamer in five innings out of six – with Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz filling the roles of Zaheer Khan and RP Singh respectively. And while Kevin Pietersen has attracted attention for his run of 25 innings without a century, Strauss is also in need of a significant score – since making 161 against Australia on this ground in July 2009, he’s gone 22 innings without reaching three figures.

“It’s one of those things,” said Strauss. “If you start looking for too many reasons for things, then you’re not concentrating on what you need to do, which is to go out and play. I’m reasonably happy with how my batting is going, because I’ve made some useful contributions but not got to three figures. A lot of the pressure that comes on a batsman comes from outside the group, but Lord’s is a wicket I generally play well on, and I’m confident things will go my way.”

If ever there was a venue designed to quell the jitters of England’s malfunctioning top-order, it is Lord’s, where a place on the famous dressing-room honours board manages – for the batsmen at least – to be both a thrilling accolade and somewhat passé. Both Strauss and Pietersen have made four centuries at the ground, with Pietersen’s 152 against South Africa in 2008 leading to his memorable declaration that he had “never felt so loved”, and of the current top seven, only Eoin Morgan has yet to make his mark. Admittedly, he’s only played at the ground on one occasion, against Bangladesh earlier this summer, but that was also Jonathan Trott’s Lord’s debut, and he marked the occasion with a career-best 226.

For Pakistan, however, the allure of playing at Lord’s will be heightened by the memories and lessons learned during their defeat against Australia earlier in the summer. Although the eventual 150-run margin looks emphatic on paper, the reality was of another nip-and-tuck contest in which ball dominated bat until the latter stages of Australia’s second innings, when the sun shone sufficiently to allow the last two wickets to add a vital 126 runs. Pakistan’s captain, Salman Butt, who made 63 and 92 in the match, believes his team will be stronger for the experience.

“Now we know the slopes and from where the wind comes,” he said. “Not more than the English team, but still I think if we can play to our potential, we can beat them and level the series, and that would be the most wonderful thing. To come from 2-0 down to level the series would help and boost their confidence for the rest of their futures, and in difficult times in the future they will have something very good to remember – even when they are older and telling young people what can happen.”

Q&A: DNA test exonerates Dallas man jailed for 25 years. Your thoughts?

Question by ko_Oties: DNA test exonerates Dallas man jailed for 25 years. Your thoughts?
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080919/ap_on_re_us/dna_exoneration;_ylt=Ao.jzDLgh0f90fnhHIbbwXBH2ocA

This poor man had his life taken away from him for 25 years! 🙁
Johnnie Earl Lindsey said he wrote six letters to a Dallas County court seeking post-conviction DNA testing that could prove his innocence. All six were ignored, he said. “I couldn’t get nobody to hear my case,” said Lindsey, 56. “Once I could get someone to pay attention to what’s going on, there was no doubt in my mind I would be exonerated.”

That day came Friday, about a week after testing on DNA evidence from a rape kit taken after a 1981 sexual assault of a Dallas woman excluded Lindsey as the source.”State District Judge Larry Mitchell released Lindsey on a personal recognizance bond and recommended the state Court of Criminal Appeals overturn the rape conviction. Lindsey will be considered officially exonerated once the higher court accepts the recommendation or if Gov. Rick Perry grants a pardon.

Mitchell, who was credited by Lindsey for being the first court official to take an interest in his case, delivered an impassioned apology from the bench.

“I can’t tell you how sorry I am this happened to you. Your freedom was taken away from you for all these years,” Mitchell said. “There’s a saying that justice delayed is justice denied. Justice was delayed for too long in your case.”

And all the Judge can say is “I’m sorry” that ( o _ 0 ) you were wrongly accused, and lost 25 years of your life because of a mistake in the beaurocratic red tape in the State of Texas.

Answer by IN THE PINK BOOGIE
Kooties, I was looking at wrongful convictions the other day and you would be surprised at the injustices at the hand of the justice system. Money talks. If you got it you can fight it if you don’t then you lose so much. I feel so bad for people in these situations.
