Bridging The Exclusion Gap

Bridging The Exclusion Gap | Technocare | Scoop.it
A set of gloves and glasses which simulate common physical limitations, like age-related long-sightedness or arthritis, have been released in the hope of getting more designers to think again about the usability of their products. Researchers at the University of Cambridge's Engineering Design Centre say that millions of people around the country -- in particular the ageing, baby-boomer generation -- have unnecessary difficulty using everyday products ranging from gadgets, to packaging, to windows and doors, because of poor design. Addressing these issues would also reduce the costs of social care.

Is it Cruel to Make a Dog Work

I think most Guide Dog owners or handlers have been accused of enslavement or cruelty to animals. I could not count on both hands the amount of times i’ve been told that using a dog to help me get around is inhumane and damn right abominable. The first time I was confronted with this attitude was only a few months after qualifying with Bailey. This animal rights activist stopped me in the street and asked did i know how cruel I was being to my dog for making him guide me around all of the time? I will not say that it isn’t a responsibility on the dog’s shoulders but historically we have used dogs in working environments for centuries.

Los héroes de cuatro patas también le dieron esperanza al Ecuador | ANDES

Los héroes de cuatro patas también le dieron esperanza al Ecuador | ANDES | Technocare | Scoop.it
Este viernes murió Dayko, uno de los héroes de cuatro patas que ayudó en las labores de rescate en el cantón de Pedernales, provincia de Manabí. El jueves, el labrador había sufrido una descompensación en su salud por lo que fue atendido por un veterinario pero sus condiciones no mejoraron y murió esta mañana. Dayko había llegado a la zona más afectada por el terremoto de 7.8 grados junto a otros dos perros de la Unidad Canina del Cuerpo de Bomberos de Ibarra. Los pequeños héroes junto a 16 bomberos detectaron personas aún con vida y también ayudaron a rescatar 7 cuerpos de entre los escombros.

Projet ANR COW
(nov. 2012 / nov. 2015)

Compagnons animaux : conceptualiser les rapports des animaux au travail

Projet ANR COW<br/>(nov. 2012 / nov. 2015)<br/><br/>Compagnons animaux : conceptualiser les rapports des animaux au travail | Technocare | Scoop.it

In the Western world essentially, the “animal issue” is one of the important parameters of social relations. The theories about animal liberation imply radical new relationships with domestic animals and possibly a break with them. Criticisms about the animal production industry but also about numerous other sectors related to animals (circus, zoos, bull fighting…) undermine these activities and question their legitimacy. These criticisms weaken the professionals themselves who face new values, sensitivities and representations that they did not anticipate and are not prepared to cope with. The research done on the role of animals in our societies, irrespective of the scientific field or the country in which it’s carried out, forgets the fundamental root of our relationship with domestic animals: work. The “animal issue” study does not take into account work experience of several millennia with animals. The work dimension associated with animals is totally absent from scientific, social and ethical controversies. Our project is meant to question the status of animals at the workplace. Our strong assumption based upon our primary studies is that animals are not simply objects but are also subjective actors. In other words, our relationships with animals at the workplace are not only explained by our supposed domination, since the Neolithic Age, but are also based on interactive intelligence and negotiation with animals. Our goal is to understand how animals involve their subjectivities into working activities according to individuals, species, and working conditions. The project is under the umbrella of social sciences, especially sociology but also anthropology, psychology of work and philosophy. However, we will also find support from eco-ethology and agronomy. This is why the project is built upon multi-partnerships even though sociology is its backbone. The methods that we set up are those of the social sciences (interviews, questionnaires, observations, analysis with or without computing help). Also, small and medium-sized firms will be incorporated into our study in order to bring actual work experience to our research. The output of our research will be scientific, economic and social. They will contribute to the understanding of the human/animal relationship by introducing the working issue as a new angle in our scientific papers and books. It will help the sustainability of companies who work with animals, specifically in animal husbandry as well as in organic farming, by producing tools to transform their practices. Because communication about research is embedded in research itself, we set up partnerships to publish our work and conduct round table discussions about our findings. Agricultural education is one focus; another is the willingness to broadcast to a large audience.

Guide dogs for the blind? PETA staffer says forget it

Guide dogs for the blind? PETA staffer says forget it | Technocare | Scoop.it
Sometimes I read something so absolutely insane that I just want to post the whole thing and point and say see? Do you see what I see? And then I remember I'm supposed to be a journalist and thus, must do commentary using words instead of facial expressions and wild gesticulations. I followed a link this evening to the blog of Karen Porreca, an editor and editorial staff manager for PETA. Porreca has a PETA logo on her blog, as well as a little disclaimer on her blog that her opinions might not match up with the organization's. On at least one point, mentioned below, they're marching in lockstep, but the distinction between the personal mindset of someone who "has been with PETA since the very beginning" and official PETA policy is duly noted. First we learn the horrifyin

The dogs trained to spot cancer, 13/03/2017, Victoria Derbyshire - BBC Two | Technocare | Scoop.it

The dogs trained to spot cancer NHS trials are currently assessing if dogs could also be used to detect prostate cancer at an early stage. One study shows that specially trained dogs can pick up the presence of such cancer in urine samples, in 93% of cases. Iain Duncan Smith's wife Betsy was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, and became involved with the charity Medical Detection Dogs. In an exclusive film for this programme, the former Conservative Party leader says he wants to see it rolled out across the NHS.
