Train games are quickly proving to be some of the most intellectually challenging games that are out there. The reason why is because the human brain is challenged to solve a puzzle that defies simple analysis. In other words, these games require the player to construct highly elaborate train systems and to clearly think about the different engineering strategies that need to be used to make the most efficient and flexible system possible. While it is true that some of them emphasize fun and entertainment, the majority to force a person to do a little bit of critical thinking.
Many people oftentimes like spending some of their free time engaged in activities that they find enjoyable. By the same token, more and more people are placing an emphasis on games and entertainment that also provide some amount of intellectual stimulation and challenge. To that end, these games are emerging as some of the most popular types of games that enable a person to not only have a lot of fun, but also do a lot of thinking about how things should be organized. Believe it or not, it is significantly more challenging than you might otherwise think.
To the extent you have an opportunity to play some of these types of games that have become popular in recent years, you should definitely do so. Oftentimes, people make the assumption that train games are incredibly rudimentary and that they offer no real challenge or ability to have fun. The only way to overcome this type of thought pattern is to try a train game for yourself to see how you like it. Don’t worry, as much of an intellectual challenge as these genes can be, they still remain incredibly fun to play for people of virtually all ages. So should you check out some of the training games that are popular today? Without a doubt, it certainly makes sense to do so.

Teaching your dog to bite (Protection Training 101) by the Miami Dog Whisperer
A pronged collar may look cruel or frightening at first glance, but the reality is that they are both effective and humane. Pronged collars are designed to pinch the loose skin around the neck of the dog when pulled tight, or “snapped”. This sensation, while painful, does not injure or harm the dog in any way. In fact, it may even resemble the pinching and nipping that the leaders of packs in the wild naturally use to promote their dominant role. This is a sensation that dogs instinctively expect, and is a far cry from the strange, frightening and stressful sensation created by alternative training tools, such as an electric shock collar.
When using a pronged collar, it is important that guidelines be followed in order to prevent injury to the dog, or breaking of the collar. Firstly, a pronged collar is intended only to be used during training sessions, and should always be removed at the end of a session. Unlike slip collars, or flat collars, a pronged collar should be bought by the required size and strength of the pronged links rather than by length. Pronged collars are intended to be shortened or lengthened to fit snugly around the neck of the dog by adding or removing links. To place a pronged collar on a dog, unhook one of the links and wrap the collar around the neck of the dog. Make sure the collar is placed high on the neck, just behind the ears and under the jaw. Close the collar by reattaching the previously detached link, ensuring a snug fit. If the collar does not stay in place, or falls low on the neck, it is too loose! Rotate the collar so that the rings to attach the leash are on the right side of the neck. To detach the collar, simply unhook one of the links by squeezing together the prongs and gently pulling the links apart.
Many pronged collars come with two rings with which to attach a leash. By using only the outer-most ring, you provide a degree of slack and lessen the impact of the snap. You can remove the slack for a more immediate response by using both rings. In the case of a pronged collar breaking or opening during training, many handlers use a flat collar, or slip collar as a backup to the pronged collar. However, you should ensure that the backup collar does not interfere with the mechanic of the pronged collar.

Cincinnati Reds fans can help the Heimlich Heroes program celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Heimlich Maneuver Reds home baseball games on June 7 and 8.
The Heimlich Heroes program teaches children ages seven and up how to perform the Heimlich Maneuver in order to save a person from choking to death.
Thoracic surgeon Dr. Henry Heimlich, 94, developed the maneuver in 1974, while he was director of surgery at Cincinnatis Jewish Hospital. The maneuver has saved countless thousands of people from choking deaths since then.
You can find us in the Fan Zone before and during the game both days. We are excited to host a table set up to inform baseball fans about the Heimlich Maneuver and the Heimlich Heroes program, said program manager Terri Huntington. We encourage fans to use the drop box which will be set up so we can hear your story. Dr. Heimlich is planning to make an appearance and well also have Hank and Heidi our specially designed training dolls on hand so visitors to the table can actually practice the maneuver and learn how to save a life. Practicing the maneuver on a doll helps people gain confidence to act if they should encounter this situation in real life.”
The June 7 and 8 Cincinnati Reds weekend is the perfect time to remind families nationwide of the importance of learning the Heimlich Maneuver and acting quickly in order to save a life. Reds third baseman Todd Frazier was recognized as a Heimlich Hero for administering the Heimlich Maneuver to a man choking on a piece of steak at a Pittsburgh restaurant two years ago.
About 5,000 people die from choking each year because those around them do not know what to do, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
Summer time is picnic time, and the chance of choking on a piece of food when talking, laughing or playing is increased, said Huntington. Hot dogs and pieces of hard candy are common choking hazards. This is the simplest first aid action proven to prevent a choking death and this teaching is critical to young and old alike. Four minutes is all you have before lack of oxygen to the brain causes permanent injury or death.
Heimlich Heroes is expanding rapidly throughout the country in school systems, national youth clubs, and other health-conscious organizations.
In the past few months alone, the program has trained more than 1,100 children ages seven through 18 in nine different states. For more information about the Heimlich Heroes program, visit the website at: http://www.heimlichheroes.com
Dr. Heimlich’s memoir, Heimlich’s Maneuvers: My Seventy Years of Lifesaving Innovation (Prometheus Books, 2014) describes how he came up with the Heimlich Maneuver and many other lifesaving innovations. It is available in bookstores and online.

The Heimlich Heroes program is a Deaconess Associations, Inc. and Heimlich Institute initiative that teaches children ages seven and up how to become super heroes by learning to perform the Heimlich Maneuver correctly in order to save a life.

Walking a Clients Dog in the Uptown Area of Dallas
Vintage $ 1000 Bill
Sheila Hornsby has worked in the Uptown area of Dallas for Park Cities Pet Sitter for nearly five years. Many of the pets she cares for reside in the high rises that dot the Oak Lawn, Turtle Creek, and McKinney Avenue streets. On the evening of Monday, July 28th, she was taking a dog from the 1900 McKinney Avenue building outside for a walk, cutting through the parking garage in the back of the building to get outside. Ms. Hornsby noticed something on the ground at the edge of the parking garage where she was walking, and initially stepped over it. As she glanced back at the item on the ground, she looked more closely and saw that what she stepped over looked like a $ 1000 bill, enclosed in a plastic sleeve. Ms. Hornsby picked up the plastic sleeve and examined it, feeling pretty certain it had to be a fake since she had never heard of a $ 1000 bill being circulated. She put the item in her back pocket with the intention of doing a little bit more investigation about it later that evening.
When Ms. Hornsby arrived home, she looked online to see if a $ 1000 bill had ever been issued by the federal government. She found that, indeed, there was. She learned that the U.S. government had last issued the $ 1000 bill back in 1945. Ms. Hornsby then took a photograph of her find and sent it to her mother, who had worked in a bank for 26 years, to see if her mother could determine if it was authentic. After her mother looked at the photo, she told Sheila that it was likely a real $ 1000 bill.
Once Ms. Hornsby realized that she had found an incredibly valuable, vintage $ 1000 bill, she said that her first thoughts were about how she would locate its rightful owner(s). I know many people probably think that I legitimately found the $ 1000 bill, so I should keep it. But I know that if I ever lost something of great value that I would hope whoever found it would be kind enough to try to locate me. So my instinct was not to keep it; instead I immediately felt this huge responsibility to find the person who had lost it.
Ms. Hornsby searched the internet to determine what options she might have to find the owner of the $ 1000 bill. Contacting the police, posting in Lost & Found areas of community websites, and posting flyers around the neighborhood where the item was found were all things she considered. After sleeping on it, she decided to first create a brief flyer and give it to the concierges at the 1900 McKinney Ave building. The flyer said, FOUND POSSIBLE COLLECTIBLE ITEM. Found near building while walking dog on Monday night, 7/28/14. If someone is missing a collectible item, please have them call me and describe it, in order to ensure that it is returned to the rightful owner. Thank you, Sheila.
On the morning of Tuesday, July 29th, Ms. Hornsby went to the 1900 McKinney building and spoke to Concierge Susan Gutierrez. Ms. Hornsby told Ms. Gutierrez that she had found a collectible item the previous evening, and wondered if anyone had reported the loss of any valuable items in the last 24 hours? Ms. Gutierrez told her that, yes, in fact a resident of the building had reported losing a vintage $ 1000 bill, and had contacted the buildings management about the loss on the off-chance that the item was turned in. Realizing that the owner of the lost $ 1000 bill had been located, Sheila made arrangements to meet the owner later that evening when she could come back with the item.
On the evening of Tuesday, July 29th, Ms. Hornsby met the rightful owner of the vintage $ 1000 bill in the lobby of the high rise building, with a number of concierges and passersby in attendance. When she returned the bill in its sleeve to the resident who had lost it, she was overwhelmed by the positive response of its owner and of those witnessing its return. It was so gratifying to see how surprised, thankful and happy the owner of the bill was to have it returned, said Ms. Hornsby. He kept saying how upset he had been at himself that he had lost the sleeve with the bill, and was certain no one would ever turn it in upon finding it. I really felt like I restored some of his faith in humanity by doing the right thing and returning what I had found. The people that were in the lobby that night when I returned the bill said it really inspired them to want to do similar good deeds, because doing so clearly created a lot of happiness. I did not realize how simply doing the right thing could be so inspiring.
Park Cities Pet Sitters President, Joette White, learned about Ms. Hornsbys find and her attempts to locate the owner of the valuable item from the sitter herself. Ms. White said that upon hearing Sheilas story she simply felt a lot of pride in her sitter and in her company. My business is built on the credibility and trust of my staff. We ask our clients to entrust us with the care of their beloved pets, and are given access to peoples homes when they are away. Having dependable, honest and trustworthy staff is a requirement for what we do. But it is also part of our company mission to be thoughtful to the people around you and think how you can impact them in a positive way, said Ms. White. The actions that Sheila took to do the right thing, of her own volition, is exactly what I would want her or any of my staff to do in that type of scenario. I cannot help but feel proud and inspired by the thoughtful actions of one of my staff.
Park Cities Pet Sitter, Inc. has served the Dallas area 7 days a week, 365 days a year since 1992. Pet sitting, daily dog walks, pet taxis, overnight sitting, pet supply shopping, litter box cleaning and dog training are all part of the services PCPSI offers.
