"Under 30 degrees, factoring in the wind chill, it's not going to be safe for any dog to be outside for an extended period of time," said Dr. Kim Smyth, a staff veterinarian with Petplan insurance. "You can buy yourself a little bit of time with warm weather clothing." If you aren't using booties, wipe down your dog's paws when they come inside and check their pads for redness or swelling.

Image: vicky leta / mashable I was listening to The Read recently — it's my favorite podcast — and I was struck by co-host Kid Fury’s observations about reaching the end of the year and feeling tired.  I posted how I felt on Instagram: "Can't add one more plan tired. Hard to get excited about exciting things tired. Can't project, assume, or read minds tired. I'm letting myself be tired, be imperfect, be how I am. It is time to hibernate and make meaning of this year, understand the lessons." SEE ALSO: Trump was a disaster for women in 2017. [...]

Yale assistant professor of psychiatry Bandy X. Lee made a huge splash in the media last week after meeting with a handful of Democrats in Congress to sound the alarm over the president’s mental fitness to serve. Lee has appeared on MSNBC and SiriusXM, and pieces about her appeared in Vox, Politico, and The Guardian, all of which she retweeted, having just joined Twitter “to inform people where they may have questions.” Lee tweeted over the weekend that she was demanding a correction to a “wildly speculative and inaccurate article” in The Weekly Standard questioning her “meeting” with a Republican [...]

Nothing says it's the holiday season quite like cuddling up on the couch and binge-watching TV. It's too cold to go outside anyway, right? I know that there are a ton of movies themed around the holiday season that you can watch, but honestly, sometimes you just want to relive the magic of a classic, special holiday episode of a great TV show. Plus, it's much easier to binge through a bunch of festive TV episodes than movies anyway. When you're looking for something to watch this holiday season, look no further than this list of the best Christmas and [...]

However as far as the potential for awkward situations go, going to the doc’s can be comedy gold. From hilariously misinformed (read: dumb) patients, to doctors with a wickedly dry sense of humour, we at Bored Panda have compiled a list of occasions when doctor/patient interactions were just too funny. As I leaned in to check her eyes, my older patient got a little frisky.“You remind me of my third husband,” she said coyly.“Third husband?” I asked. “How many have you had?” “Two.” “Here,” says the nurse, handing the patient a urine specimen container. “The bathroom’s over there.” A few [...]

Back in 2009, Carl Siciliano wasn't sure if his nonprofit was going to survive the throes of the Great Recession. The Ali Forney Center, a group committed to helping homeless LGBTQ youth in New York City, was on the brink of eviction. Between paying rent, payroll, and the critical services it provided to its youth, Siciliano, director of the center, had doubts Ali Forney could run much longer. Carl Siciliano.

ShareTweet Surrogacy is not for the faint of heart. While carrying another woman’s child who can not conceive is certainly a noble act, it is not one that comes without emotional repercussions. Surrogates often bond with the child as though it is their own and must endure the painful separation of giving up the baby that their body nurtured for nine months. For one Texas surrogate (who chooses to remain anonymous), this difficult process was complicated further when the baby she was carrying was diagnosed with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) at 16 weeks. According to the Washington Times, the biological [...]

(CNN)Parents like to see themselves as purveyors of possibility. We want our children to inhabit a world in which identities are both mutable and equal, and imagination and empathy reign supreme! This clash between what parents desire for their children and what children desire for themselves is most easily observable in cartoon preferences. So often, the more parents dislike a show, the more their children love it.
