Japanese Spitz Temperament and Lifespan

It is smiling, funny, white and fluffy as a Christmas snow. Who is this? That's right - a Japanese Spitz. Everybody who keep this breed speak about it only enthusiastically. This "strong, mobile, intelligent dog with a cheerful and courageous character", and "surprisingly faithful dog without bad habits," with "sparkling, fluffy fur, which allegedly radiates happiness." In general, all of the Japanese Spitz are "typically irresistible" and usually you can hear saying : "better than Spitz there can be only two, three, four ... Spitz".

Japanese Spitz dog is close to the average German Spitz (it is the closest relative), but which has in its rather "dark past" some other related species, so there is information about the cast-Shiba Inu (highly debatable - keurig kold). The breed is relatively young (in the sense of not so long ago recognized), the first mention of it outside Japan took place in 1936. Spitz is very popular in the Scandinavian countries, England, has a large population in Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic and other European countries.

Are Certain Types of Ethnic Studies at Arizona Colleges and Universities Really that Menacing and Why?

What is really happening at some Arizona colleges and universities nowadays? Just come to think of it: the first red flag sign was prohibition to celebrate the Martin Luther King Day. Another step was taken by the Arizona legislators; they initiated an extremely harsh legislation aimed at all persons suspected to be illegal immigrants.

And they strike at the colleges in Az - according to the bill approved and signed by authorities of high schools and university of Arizona they have to reject their students the possibility of taking certain types of ethnic studies (in the first place this initiative strikes the Tucson school district, but nothing stops it from being applied to the rest of Arizona, not only high schools, but the university as well).

As was reported by the Associated Press the legislative initiative that was signed on Tuesday (5/11/2010) is aimed at annihilation of ethnic solidarity propagated by some educational programs at Arizona universities and colleges, including the University of Arizona as well. Those programs were designed primarily for students of a particular race. According to legislators those educational programs might promote resentment toward one or another of ethnic groups. Among the prohibited classes one finds such programs as African-American studies, Mexican-American studies and Native-American studies. Before this recent prohibitive legislative initiative this type of Ethnic Studies was available for students at some colleges in Az, in particular at the Tucson Unified School District (for more details a reader is invited to refer to the original Associated Press article written by Jonathan J. Cooper and dated 5/11/2010). Surely this extreme prohibitive measure had to be justified in some plausible manner and teaching ethnic solidarity was designated as the whipping boy, since, presumably, it might somehow propagate resentment toward ethnic groups different from that under consideration. Tom Horne, the Arizona schools and university chief declared those programs as guilty of so called "ethnic chauvinism." This definition was backed additionally by reports of some students of ethnic group different from the groups at issue: they accused instructors and students of ethnic antagonism directed at students who do not belong to the ethnic group under question.
