How can I stop my German Shepherd breaking out of her dog lot every time she hears a gun shot?

Question by Chase: How can I stop my German Shepherd breaking out of her dog lot every time she hears a gun shot?
Every time I or one of the neighbors fire a weapon, my dog tries to break out. She has gone over electric fences (shocking herself in the progress) and she has even gnawed through boards and some types of fencing. I have tried punishing her every time she did got out, but that didn’t work at all. She is fully bred and 5 years old. The caliber of the firearm doesn’t matter. 17s and 22s are enough to make her try to escape.

HD: The Race is On! Two Hot Shot Intermodals Battle it out with Horn and Speed!

Early in the morning on November 21, 2011, two hot shot intermodal trains 20Q and 24K both race eastbound from Harrisburg, PA to Morrisville, PA making one heck of a heart racing sight. Both trains are about 1.5 miles in length, and basically start and end at the same time! Also note the defect detectors in the beginning of the video: tracks one and two announce simultaneously! I woke up that morning, and just happen to decide to take a look at ATCS and noticed 2 trains lined east on opposite tracks all the way from Millards (MP 93.5) to Wyomissing Jct. (MP 61), with no opposing westbound traffic anywhere in sight. The leading train, 20Q (with NS 9878 and NS 9022), on track one, ended up being told to wait for 24K to go first at Wyomissing Jct., evidently, 24K is higher priority, and when the 24K crew heard dispatcher telling 20Q that he would stop, they said, “We just like looking at your engines.” For those of you who don’t know, Wyomissing Jct. is where the Harrisburg Line either enters Reading (which is not possible for 90% of trains because of height restrictions) or temporarily diverges into a single connecting track which leads to the wye at Dunkle where one track heads northeast toward the Reading Line to Allentown and New York City and the other heads southeast to rejoin the Harrisburg Line to Philadelphia. Therefore, one train has to hold a Wyomissing Jct. for the other to pass through the wye before continuing. In this case, both trains were headed to

This year’s Flu shot?

Question by : This year’s Flu shot?
Earlier this flu season, I was told that I would not need to update my flu shots.
(I am a Substitute Teacher and I do try to keep my flu shots updated as often as needed. I am 44 y.o.) I hear reports saying that this year’s flu strain will be more violent throughout the U.S.A.
The last flu shot-regimin I had was “the standard set” in January 2006.
Do I need an update to my currently “active” flu shots (I was told the one taken in 2006 would last me until 2008.)
Thanks for replies from MEDICALLY trained people.
