anonymous asked:

Where can I find dog nutritional requirements? Every place I look at has different RDAs for all sorts of nutrients, and nothing to tell you the different requirements between breeds and sizes or for puppies/older dogs as opposed to full grown adults.

You are asking for a huge volume of information. The least biased sources I can find for you are:

Nutrient Requirements of Dogs, Revised 1985, National Academy Press, Washington D.C., 1985 (National Research Council, subcommittee on dog nutrition.)

Nutrient Requirements of Cats, Revised 1986, National Academy Press, Washington D.C., 1986 (National Research Council, subcommittee on cat nutrition.)

These are all published as books, not as popular websites. Of the eleven highly qualified professionals on these committees, only one was employed by a pet food company.

It’s waltham that’s done the most research in breed specific nutrition, but they make pet food, so that might not have been what you wanted.

As the Women’s March on Washington has swelled in support, attracting attention and supporters in the lead-up to Saturday’s demonstrations, its name has become something of a misnomer.

Sister marches have been organized in all 50 states, and in countries around the world. They have been organized to express solidarity with the aims of the original march: opposition to President Trump’s agenda, and support of women’s rights and human rights in general.

Given the quirks of time zones, many of those marches kicked off before the event that inspired them. In Paris, London, Berlin, Amsterdam, Mexico City, Bangkok, Delhi, Cape Town, and other cities, protesters have already broken out their signs and pink hats in solidarity.

Muslim-American vet explains why he’s marching for women’s rights

  • Nate Terani, a first-generation Iranian, Muslim-American and military veteran, is as feminist as they come.
  • He’s subsequently been a vocal advocate for and will participate in the Women’s March in Washington, D.C., on Saturday.
  • The march — now a global movement — is an impassioned response to the inauguration of Trump, a figure who’s earned himself a reputation as a misogynist who encourages sexual assault.
  • “As a Muslim-American who believes in fundamental equality and as a veteran who took an oath to defend the Constitution, it is important to be present on the ground,” 39-year-old Terani said of the march from his home in Tucson, Arizona, in an interview with Mic. He spoke while he packed for his trip to D.C. Read more

My friend flew up to Washington D.C. to participate in the Woman’s March (I will be in our city march yay!) and she posted this photo!

The flight was comprised mainly of women going to the march, so the crew changed the lights to pink. That is so cool!!!! (Also, a woman near her put Trump’s face on a toilet paper roll. Beautiful.)

Donald Trump creates massive “safe space” to keep feminists away from inauguration

  • The Women’s March on Washington was slated to take place at the Lincoln Memorial on Jan. 21. 
  • According to a Facebook event page, more than 138,000 vowed to march.
  • The event hopes to “send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights,“ according to the event page. 
  • But now, marchers will have to find a new space to send that message.
  • On behalf of the Presidential Inauguration Committee, the National Park Service has taken precautions to secure large areas of Washington, D.C. in observance of Inauguration Day, the Guardian reported. 
  • The legislation also established a "massive omnibus blocking permit” for several of D.C.’s landmark political locations — including the Lincoln Memorial — for time both before and after Jan. 20, when the president-elect will officially be inaugurated. Read more
