Dealing with a Neighbor Conflict Guest: Emily de Schweinitz Taylor, Conflict Mediator, Author of “Raising Mediators” Is your neighbor starting a Spring construction project that’s driving you nuts? Or running the lawnmower next to your window at 6 a.m. every Saturday? Leaving their empty trash cans on the curb for days after pickup?

They’ve just learned an important secret.

Sleep scientist Christopher Depner at the University of Colorado Boulder has looked into whether this works and –and let’s just say the news is not encouraging. Winter for the Wild Guest: Bridget B. Baker, Clinical Veterinarian, Wayne State University  It isn’t uncommon this time of year to see dogs out for a walk decked out in little sweaters and booties. Do they really need protection from the cold? How do squirrels and other animals manage in the wild without owners to bundle them up in cable knit?
