There are a lot of things pet parents have always had to worry about. Now a dog has tested positive for the virus in China. This is the only instance known. So far, there is no evidence that dogs can spread the disease, or that it will cause your pet to fall ill. However, it’s a good idea to proceed with caution to ensure both you and your canine are safe, happy, and healthy, no matter what pandemic we’re currently dealing with.

I don't think it's easy to take a single story from the pages of aviation history and call it the 'best' or 'most interesting' because the competition is fierce, but the doomed crew of the World War Two B24 Liberator 'Lady Be Good' ranks for the title if any do. The crew became hopelessly lost and because they were flying at night, they ultimately came to believe they were over the ocean, just about to run out of fuel, and this is what led to their decision to bail out.

Like a pressure cooker simmering for many months, all the ingredients for war that have been simmering may be about ready to boil over. The official news agency of the government in Pyongyang is reacting to the joint naval exercises conducted by US, Japanese and South Korean forces.
Governor Kate Brown today issued Executive Order 20-12, directing everyone in Oregon to stay at home to the maximum extent possible and adding to the list of businesses that will be temporarily closed to stem the spread of COVID-19 in Oregon. The order is effective immediately, and remains in effect until ended by the Governor.
On May 19, 1983, Elizabeth Diane Downs and her three small children were shot on a country road near Springfield, Oregon. Her 7-year old daughter Cheryl died, but her 3-year old son Danny and her 8-year old daughter Christie survived. Within three weeks, Diane had lost custody of her remaining wounded children and had become the number one suspect in the eyes of the police department and District Attorney’s office. I came across some very interesting information about the Diane Downs case because Rule attended the trial and also wrote a book about the case called Small Sacrifices.

This is a story about The Southwestern Company: a corporatized mafia organization operating throughout the United States. The Southwestern Company hires who are mostly college students, staying with host families during the summer, to go door-to-door selling educational books across the U.S. in cities like Salem, Oregon.

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) will also likely harm Americans indirectly because the U.S. is increasingly reliant on drugs either directly sourced from China or made from intermediate chemicals called Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs), or their chemical precursors, manufactured in China. While 90% of the finished drugs Americans take are generics, most are manufactured overseas, primarily in India and China.
