Good service dog makes it into school yearbook right next to his human

Good service dog makes it into school yearbook right next to his humanService dogs deserve recognition for the great deeds they perform daily. To them, they aren't even great deeds. They are just ... deeds. Andrew "AJ" Schalk, a 16-year-old junior at Stafford High School in Virginia, certainly wanted to give his service dog, Alpha, the respect that was deserved for someone who has saved his life several times. So he asked his school if they'd be willing to give his dog a spot in the yearbook, and the result is adorable.  That's a GOOD dog if I've ever seen one. SEE ALSO: Inspirational golden retriever perfectly demonstrates how to get swole for the summer Just a boy and his (service) dog pic.twitter.com/uM5f9P9X3V — AJ (@t1dfighter_aj) May 18, 2017 Schalk was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2009. "The decision to get a service dog came about just to have greater control over my blood sugar and A1C, and Alpha has even saved my life on multiple occasions," Schalk said. As Schalk's service dog, Alpha's job is to alert Schalk if his blood sugar is getting too low or too high by sniffing his breath. If undetected, Schalk could be in danger. But with Alpha on the case, he has peace of mind. Andrew Schalk and his good boy, Alpha.Image: Andrew SchalkAlpha joined Schalk's family when he was four months old, and has now been with Schalk for three and a half years. Halfway through the previous school year, Schalk started bringing Alpha with him to school. "I started by bringing him once a week, then twice, and so on and so forth until he was fully acclimated," Schalk explained. Alpha is now a consistent presence at Stafford High, attending classes with Schalk every day. Image: andrew schalk"Alpha is not a distraction at all!" Schalk said. "He lays under my desk during class, and even though everyone knows he is there, everyone still pays attention to class and loves having him there." Who wouldn't love knowing that there is a dog nearby at all times? We sure wouldn't mind. Alpha is so beloved at the school, in fact, that when Schalk asked if he could be in the yearbook the request was happily granted. "I talked to a friend of mine in the yearbook club and asked of we could get Alpha into the yearbook," Schalk said. "She took it to the teacher in charge and all the teachers and administration were 100% supportive." Good boy Alpha also got himself an official student ID. Alpha clearly dressed up for picture day.Image: andrew schalk"All my classmates loved seeing Alpha in the yearbook," Schalk said. "And people that I didn't know loved the surprise of having a service dog in the yearbook." Schalk, a junior, has one more year of high school left, and that means Alpha gets to make another yearbook cameo.  "I for sure plan on having him in the yearbook next year as well," Schalk confirmed.

After the wettest winter on record in the state, the collapse marked the third major closure in Big Sur, a roughly 76-mile stretch of the Pacific Coast Highway that hugs California's rugged Central Coast between Cambria and Carmel-by-the-Sea. The Big Sur portion of State Route 1 is designated as a National Scenic Byway for its spectacular coastal vistas and is famed as one of the longest stretches of largely undeveloped shoreline in the continental United States.

The internet has already got the plot for 'Top Gun 2' all figured out

The internet has already got the plot for 'Top Gun 2' all figured outTop Gun doesn't strike as a film that needs a sequel, but you're getting one anyway. Tom Cruise confirmed he's filming Top Gun 2 within the "next year". He made the announcement on the Australian TV show Sunrise — a rather unexpected place to calmly reveal such news. SEE ALSO: Tom Cruise just cleared the runway for 'Top Gun 2,' better strap in "I'm going to start filming it probably in the next year. I know. It's happening. It is definitely happening," Cruise told the program. "You're the first people that I've said this to." While there have been murmurs of a sequel to the 1986 film for 30 years, the death of Top Gun's director Tony Scott stalled those plans. With scant detail on the film, aside from the fact that "it's happening," it was left to the internet to figure out the plot. Will Val Kilmer somehow return as Iceman? Is Kenny Loggins going to collaborate with say, The Chainsmokers, for a rehash of the theme song?  Who knows, but everyone thinks there's going to be a helluva lot of drone action and modern, but ultimately unreliable fighter jets. And hopefully a revisit of that volleyball scene. Top Gun 2 is going to be 180 minutes of Tom Cruise sitting on a runway while his F-35A's code debugs until a $1000 drone explodes on him. — Kelsey D.

Lack of new launches leaves Ford playing catchup with GMBy Paul Lienert DETROIT (Reuters) - James Hackett spent the last year plotting Ford Motor Co's long-term self-driving car strategy. In his first week as chief executive, he has more immediate concerns: stopping a skid in North American sales and fending off a market share grab by resurgent archrival General Motors Co. The U.S. No. 2 automaker is stuck in a product drought that shows no signs of easing until 2019, according to two sources who track Detroit's launch plans. Given the auto industry's long product cycles, it is not clear what Hackett can do immediately to get Ford out of its predicament, which can be traced back to decisions by former CEOs.

Donald Trump's budget slammed as 'cruel' and 'immoral' after it promises to cut social safety-net by $1 trillionDonald Trump’s budget director has faced fire from Democrats as he attempted to defend the President’s budget proposal – which would slash federal spending on social safety-net programmes by more than $1 trillion (£77.2bn) over the next 10 years. During a House of Representatives budget committee hearing, Democrats slammed Mr Trump's budget as “cruel” and “immoral”, while most Republicans praised the President’s efforts to curb federal spending. The President wants legislators to cut at least $610bn (£471bn) from the Medicaid – a healthcare programme for the poor – and more than $192bn (£148bn) from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (Snap), the modern version of food stamps – as well as several other initiatives.

Apple designer made a $12,000 hourglass that comes with an iPhone-worthy design story

Apple designer made a $12,000 hourglass that comes with an iPhone-worthy design story

Design stories can be pretty silly, and that’s especially true for Samsung’s annoying smartphone design stories — here’s the most recent Galaxy S8 story. But Samsung designers aren’t the only ones that have exaggerated tales about their creations, and we’ve got one more such example for you. This time around, it comes from an Apple designer, although it doesn’t concern an Apple product.

Marc Newson created a special hourglass for Hodinkee that retails for $12,000. It’s handcrafted, and it contains noisy nanoballs instead of boring sand. No, there’s absolutely no reason to buy one, even if it’s a Newson creation.

The hourglass is 150mm tall and 125mm across at the widest point. It contains 1.3 million tiny copper balls that measure just 0.6mm in diameter, and measures precisely 10 minutes.

But the way Newson and Hodinkee describe it makes it sound like something that’s actually worth buying/watching/enjoying. It’s not.

“Sometimes you see an object, and it just captivates you. You can't look away. You can't even really explain what you're looking at either,” Hodinkee says. “Marc Newson's Hourglass is one such object. It takes the idea of one of the most basic time-measuring instruments ever devised, and pushes it to its limits.” Alright.

"It is perhaps one of the most fundamental objects in the world of timekeeping, and arguably one of the oldest, but I love the fact that it is so sort of deeply esoteric, and it has this strange and mesmeric quality," Newson says in the promo video at the end of this post.

"On one hand, you're witnessing time. But on the other hand, it's completely sort of timeless, and it actually if anything focuses your attention on the opposite of time, if that makes any sense."

It doesn’t. And, look, the actual manufacturing of the hourglass is impressive itself. The glass object requires a certain precision, and it’s hand made, which is remarkable. It’s just Hodinkee and Newson’s design stories that are annoying.

“Watching the Hourglass is a multi-sensory experience that cannot be communicated in words,” the blog post explains. “The combination of watching those first few nanoballs bounce around the bottom chamber, the flow begin to change surface patterns in the top chamber, and the unique sound of the nanoballs flying around, hitting the glass and one another as they settle at the bottom, is utterly mesmerizing. Invariably, the first time we show it to someone, there's a gasp, a big smile, and sometimes even a little giggle as they lean in and get ready to watch for the full 10 minutes.” Mkay.

Charging bear attacks hunter in terrifying encounter caught on videoA Canadian hunter is lucky to be alive after being attacked by a black bear. Richard Wesley was bow hunting near Fire River, Ontario, when he noticed a large black bear roaming nearby. At first, the bear seemed unfazed by Wesley's presence, but when the hunter makes a sound in an attempt to scare off the approaching bear, it charges. Wesley attempts to make as much noise as possible, and even punches the attacking bear in the face. The camera falls and the hunter returns just a few seconds later, visibly shook by the near death experience. "I should have shot a long time ago," Wesley says into the camera just seconds after the attack.  Luckily, the hunter walked away nearly unscathed.  "No wounds except a bruised elbow and ego where the bear threw me down," Wesley wrote on YouTube.  "Genuinely happy that this was a non fatal or tragic outcome."
