Things to Consider When Shipping Your Animals Away Throughout the United States

Article by Rick Powell

When life calls upon us to travel, whether it be a move away, a business trip, or a vacation, it is important to tie up all loose ends and to make sure that all of our loved ones are taken care of, especially the furry ones–our pets. If you plan on traveling with your pet, there are several steps that you must take to ensure a safe and comfortable trip. Here are five tips for pet shipping to help you accomplish this:

1. Your pet must be healthy.

A healthy pet will better withstand the stress of travel. Schedule an appointment with your local veterinarian and ask for a domestic health certificate that states your pet is fine to travel. If your pet is not healthy, certain travel conditions can affect your pet adversely.

2. Buy a Crate in the Appropriate Size for Pet Transport

Another very important tip to traveling with pets is making sure that you have the appropriately sized crate for pet transport. A top quality crate with enough room for your pet to move around in the crate is perfect. A sufficiently sized crate will ensure that your pet is not injured in the cargo compartment and that your pet is not turned away by the airline. If your pet is small enough to fit in a carrier that can be placed beneath your seat, this is your safest and most worry-free option.

3. Schedule your pet transportation in accordance with your schedule.

If you are moving and shipping your pet, please be sure that your pet transport arrangements fit perfectly within your schedule. Also, be sure to cover the crate using stickers, paint or permanent marker, with notes that say your dog’s name, your name, flight number, and contact information.

4. Be certain of your travel plans well in advance of the actual travel date.

When it comes to pet shipping and pet transport, a last minute rush can spell disaster for your pet. Plan to arrive at the airport at least a half hour earlier than usual. Check in, but don’t let them take your pet away until the last moment, usually thirty minutes before departure. Once you’ve checked in, take your pet outside for a walk to allow him or her to relieve themselves. Because you can never be cautious enough, be absolutely certain that the door of the kennel is extremely secure, but do not lock it. In the event of an emergency it may need to be opened. Just above the door, write, “Do not open this door without the permission of owner or a licensed veterinarian!” Also, never leave your pet before a baggage handler actually comes to collect him for pet transport.

5. Choose a reputable company to handle your pet shipping needs.

Whether you are planning a move or a trip that just includes your pet, a reliable pet transport company will see to it that you have the proper crate for pet shipping, provide a door-to-door service and handle boarding needs.

A family pet is usually as well loved as any human family members. Taking the time to plan your travel and pet shipping well in advance will make travel less stressful for both you and your beloved pet. Hiring a well-known pet transportation company to handle the travel arrangements for your pet will let you breathe easier, knowing that the arrangements from A-Z have been made by professionals who treat your pet with the same loving care as you do.

Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate breaks ground as the Kennedys build their legacy in bricks and mortar.

Article by Carl Mortimer

I feel Dr. Lant has really brought forth a great indication that the Kennedys are in fact gone, but never to be forgotten. How about YOU? What are your feelings? You can send your comments to me at my email listed below or Skype me at: CarlMort, call me at 6503874820. If you want to find out how YOU could be publishing these articles for FREE contact me.

“Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate breaks ground as the Kennedys build their legacy in bricks and mortar.”

by Dr. Jeffrey Lant

“You will never understand the Kennedys until you understand their obsession with controlling their legacy, making absolutely sure they have the last word on every aspect of their lives, particularly the public services on which they base their utility and credibility.

This is why they are so keen on building… because in the long run building and controlling the edifices and complexes they create about themselves enables them to control their legacy. Whatever anyone says or writes about them, the Kennedys themselves will have the chance to rebut, to shape, and to control to the furthest extent what people know and think about them.

In short, like the Caesars of Rome, their focus is on eternity… that is why they write in marble and why the faithful gathered in Dorchester, Massachusetts April 8, 2011 for the ground breaking of the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate.

Not the institution they wanted, not the place they wanted.

To begin with, the Kennedys wanted President John F. Kennedy’s presidential library to be in Cambridge, as snug as possible to Harvard. There was a site they wanted, and it is easy to see why they wanted it. It was a splendid site right across from the Harvard Business School, on the river Charles on the street named in 1805 for Massachusetts governor James Bowdoin. Traditionalists (and people who were not enamored of the family Kennedy) opposed the change. But changing the name of that street had a precedent. Bowdoin Street had originally been called Middlecott Street from as early as 1750; now it was changed to John F. Kennedy Street, and so for the moment it remains.

In the process, Harvard’s officials got a glaring indication of what the Kennedys wanted… a Kennedy theme park that would overshadow the world’s greatest university.

This is not what Harvard wanted from anyone, and it is certainly not what they wanted from the Kennedys, a family with which Harvard had always had, shall we say, an equivocal relationship. The negotiations went on for years and were “frank” as they say in diplomatic parlance; in other words, behind closed doors the discussions were blunt, candid, revealing.

In the end, a compromise came about. The Kennedy name went on an institute for the study of politics. The beautiful site on the Charles is now a quiet park, where several of JFK’s signature remarks and observations are chiseled in stone and under a fountain where it is a pleasure to sit on a hot summer day.

The Kennedy Institute itself is a refuge for retired (often defeated) politicians who come, after clobbering their way into office, to tell us that comity, amity, togetherness and brotherly love are the way to go; that rancor, negativity and distortion have no place in the American way of life and government..

Then, if they get the chance, they go back into the fray, raising funds to clobber their opponents better and more effectively than these opponents clobber them. It is very much the American way, the hypocrisy so ingrained in our national way of politics and governance we never see it at all. It is just the way things are.

The greatest irony.

As for JFK’s presidential library and museum it went to Dorchester, Massachusetts, an event of great irony. The Kennedys, like every upwardly mobile Irish family, left Dorchester the minute they could; always wanting to be from Dorchester, not in it. Now they were linked to the place forever. In such ways do the gods of great Olympus amuse themselves.

Now they add another level of irony in the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate. First because this is hardly the institution the Kennedys really wanted. Had there been justice in American politics, Edward M. Kennedy would have his own presidential library.

But EMK muffed his chance to be president, losing at the hands of Jimmy Carter, of all people, a man who never connected with the American people, losing big to Ronald Reagan, a man who did.

Kennedy kept his Senate seat for his entire life… but for him it was always a destination, never a launching pad to the bigger office at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. It must have rankled once upon a time, but he got used to it. Still, he wanted something that was as close to presidential as you could get. And his Institute for the United States Senate was the result.

First off, like JFK’s library it is located in the wrong place. If it was necessary at all, it should have been in Washington DC. Moreover, it shouldn’t have particularly focused on EMK but clearly on the institution of the Senate itself, with Kennedy and his famous brothers a part but only a minor part of the story. Again, the Kennedys have seized an institution and linked themselves forever with it. Harvard officials could tell you what that is all about.

The institute and its ground breaking.

As its prospectus says, “The Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate is dedicated to educating the public about our government, invigorating public discourse, encouraging participatory democracy, and inspiring the next generation of citizens and leaders to engage in the public square. The Institute will be a dynamic center of non-partisan learning and engagement that takes advantage of cutting-edge technology to provide each visitor and other participants with a unique and information rich, personalized experience that will bring history alive.”


But the very ground breaking showed something quite different. At the place where the new 40,000 square foot institute will stand, the shards of Camelot gathered, to inaugurate, for probably the last time, a named Kennedy monument. The usual suspects were there, lead by Kennedy’s widow Victoria Reggie Kennedy, always decent, well-spoken, likable.

But two figures were particularly notable for very different reasons.

As they toasted non-partisanship and all the rest, Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick, Democrat, decided to take this of all moments to chide the Tea Party movement, then engaged in taking charge of the national budget crisis. His excellency wouldn’t bite his tongue, saying

“Decades of poisonous rhetoric about how government is bad, taxes are bad, and greed is good has begun to jeopardize the can-do spirit of this country. My greatest disappointment with the conservative movement, so-called, is that it is sapping the optimism out of our country.” And so right from the get-go, to the astonishment of the audience, the bitterness that is American politics was present, prominent, ingrained, intractable.

But the real winner of the day was Senator Scott Brown, the Republican who, to the consternation of the Democratic establishment, turned the”Kennedy seat” into the People’s Seat by a magic all his own. “I told you I’d come,” he said. “A little surprise to everybody, isn’t it?” In those few words, he showed just why he’s such a strong contender for re-election next year in this overwhelmingly Democratic state… and why there was such a feeling of pathos and the past about this event, yet another indication the Kennedys are about yesterday, not tomorrow.”

Manchester – City Vs United Or Us Vs Them?

As rivalries go, the competition between Manchester City and Manchester United (lovingly known as Man. U by its fans, and by many other less affectionate name by rivals) is a strange one. Unlike Edinburgh’s Hearts and Hibs or Liverpool’s Everton and LFC, City and United’s fans aren’t known for being from two different sections of town.

No, in Manchester the divide is much simpler — Mancunians root for City, and everybody else? Well, they go nuts for United.

As some City fans like to say, Old Trafford (United’s famous home ground) isn’t actually within Manchester’s city limits — “and neither are 98% of United fans.”

Indeed, United has official supporters clubs spread far and wide, from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to Shanghai, China,  from Ottawa, Canada, to Sydney, Australia. Osama bin Laden was even rumoured to be a Man U  fan in his youth.

So where does the rivalry between the two originate, and what is it about the sides that makes their supporters go wild?

Part of the rivalry may stem from the different expectations that surround each of them.

Founded as Newton Heath L&YR F.C. in 1878 as the works team of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway depot — two years before City — United boasts a world-wide reputation and is usually found in the top-5 teams in the English Premiership. Because of this, supporters from out-of-town (and out-of-country) fill Manchester hotels well in advance of games, chomping at the bit for the opportunity to watch excellent players who are famous the world over.

Conversely, fans of Man City — founded as St. Mark’s (West Gorton) in 1880 by Anna Connell and two churchwardens of St. Mark’s Church, in Gorton, east Manchester, and claimed to have early links to local Freemasonry — tend to be native Mancunians.

At local derby time it can turn into quite a production. For fully-booked hotels Manchester natives are not the customers to expect. Rather, they support City with enthusiasm.

What are the prospects for each team in the upcoming season? Manchester United has a strong team, but some of their players are looked at as being past their best playing days. Sir Alex Ferguson, who has managed the team since 1986, might need to push the players harder to have the same level of success Man U has enjoyed in previous years. Manchester City, with its more home-grown reputation, should perform to expectations in the upcoming season — but bear in mind that for many City fans, a season where they beat their rival neighbors and win bragging rights over out-of-town Man U fans can usually be considered a successful one.

In booking a trip to see either teams, it’s a good idea to plan ahead, especially when traveling to Manchester during a United game. This is when Manchester’s hotels fill up far in advance, especially those located around Old Trafford, and leaving your plans till the last minute can mean you (and anyone traveling with you to see the game) might be left out in the cold.

The 2009-2010 season promises to be an exciting one for both of Manchester’s Premier League teams. Who will come out next May with the better record and happier fans? Time will tell, but for many, the choice of who to support is already made.

Roo is based in London’s East End and is a fan of Tottenham Hotspur, so is as unbiased as any fan can be when talking about the Manchester rivals.
