PetSmart faces another dog death

Largest pet retailer in U.S. conducting an internal investigation after a trio of canine fatalities in the Garden State

The dog’s demise came the same day that officials raided a PetSmart store in Nashville and confiscated six small animals suspected of being abused. Lauren Bluestone, director of the city’s Metro Animal Care and Control department, said in an email that criminal charges are expected to be filed next week.

“The six animals finally were released into our custody from the small animal vet specialist,” she said, adding that “all animals are currently being treated but are doing much better.”

The death of Crawford’s dog follows the deaths of two dogs and the injury of another at a PetSmart in Flemington, N.J., during an eight-day period in December. Those deaths were not related, according to PetSmart.

Google Maps’ Street View Won’t Let You Unblur Images

Recently, the internet has noticed something peculiar about Google Maps: Once something gets blurred in Google Street View, there’s no turning back. Here’s how to blur an image in Google Maps—and why you should think twice before doing it.

Last month, a Reddit post in a group for posting life tips detailed how users who are unhappy with Google’s Street View pictures can request them to be blurred on Maps. There is any number of reasons why someone might want to do so. Google, for example, has always blurred the fronts of domestic violence shelters to protect victims.

Pokemon Go Fans Aren’t Happy About the Newest Community Day

 

Pokemon Go fans aren’t thrilled with next weekend’s Community Day mini-event.

Yesterday, Pokemon Go revealed that any Ampharos evolved during next weekend’s Community Day event will learn the move Dragon Pulse, a move it can’t usually learn during the game. This led to widespread complaints by many fans who already weren’t happy that April’s Community Day event would focus on Mareep, a sheep-like Pokemon with a largely underwhelming set of moves and stats.

Penguins and Flyers to meet in Stanley Cup playoffs | Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

 

 

The NHL postseason will have a Pennsylvania flavor, as the Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers will meet in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals this week.

“It never hurts when we play the Flyers,” Patric Hornqvist said recently, talking specifically about getting up for games. “There have been a lot of good memories and good battles. They’re always fun games.”

 

Flyers center Claude Giroux celebrates his second-period power play goal with teammates center Sean Couturier, center, and Nolan Patrick, right, against the New York Rangers on Saturday.

The Penguins have home-ice advantage for the best-of-seven series, which should draw plenty of national attention and easily could start Wednesday — the first night of games.

The Penguins swept the regular-season series against the Flyers, 4-0, totaling 20 goals in those four games. It’s the first time since 2006-07 (8-0) that the Penguins have swept the Flyers in the regular season.

All victims in New Jersey E. coli outbreak admitted to hospitals | Food Safety News

 

An E. coli outbreak in New Jersey has a 100 percent hospitalization rate and is  possibly linked to eating at Panera Bread, based on patient interviews.

Although state health officials did not specifically name Panera Bread in an undated statement posted this weekend, local officials have told media in New Jersey that their investigation includes Panera Bread.

“The department is investigating a possible association with a chain restaurant, but the association may be broader than a single chain restaurant. The department is in the process of gathering food history data from those who became ill,” according to the statement from the New Jersey Department of Health.

All eight people confirmed with E. coli infections had symptoms so severe that they required hospitalization. Three of them were still in the hospital as of this weekend.

Create a fresher home with a few laundering tricks

 

Whites, brights, dark colors and delicates — doing the laundry can sometimes seem overwhelming.

Pam Howarth of Menallen Township, a retired family consumer science teacher for Uniontown Area School District who also serves as a 4-H leader, shared some insights into cleaning clothes.

“First of all, stain treatment should be done as soon as possible,’’ Howarth noted.

Howarth prefers using a dish-washing detergent that cuts grease and doesn’t have to be laundered right away, but remarked that specific stain treatment products are also good. Read the label, however, to see if the clothing has to be washed within a certain amount of time. Howarth also mentioned some people like to carry stain treatment products that are made to be taken with you, such as wipes.

Howarth said sometimes she puts bleach on a garment held over the sink but then rinsed well to avoid bleach causing a yellow stain.

To make your whites their whitest, Howarth noted a lot of people put a cup of white vinegar in their loads.
