Here I just want to share something about the dog Sam an army dog

Here I just want to share something about the dog Sam an army dog
Sam (kicked the pail 2000), was an outfitted energy canine who displayed with the Royal Army Veterinary Corps Dog Unit. While serving in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 1990s, Sam served to catch an outfitted man moreover to hold down a prepared swarm striking a compound where Serbs were taking refuge. He got the Dickin Medal's, what should be known as the Victoria Cross, in 2003 for these showings of dauntlessness.

Life and calling

Sam was a German Shepherd canine, who exhibited with the Dog Unit of the Royal Army Veterinary Corps. Sam and his handler, Sergeant Iain Carnegie, were a bit of the Peacekeeping propel in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

While viewing in the town of Drvar in 1998 with the First Battalion of The Royal Canadian Regiment, their watch accomplished barbarous feedback from a shooter. In the wake of releasing, the shooter ran into a bar, whereupon Sam sought after him and chop him down. Sergeant Carnegie then debilitated the man and recuperated a stacked weapon.

Six days after this event, a swarm of instigators outfitted with crowbars, clubs and stones enveloped a compound where something like 50 Serbs were taking sanctuary. Sam's gathering evaluated how to force their course into the compound and he held off the instigators until fortresses arrived.

Sam surrendered from organization following two years, at 10 years of age. He passed on from normal causes before long.


Sam after death got the Dickin Medal's, what should be known as the Victoria Cross, in 2003 in recognition of his work in Bosnia and Herzegovina. He was the fifty ninth animal to get the honor, and was moreover the initially equipped energy puppy to get the Dickin Medal since 1944. The reference for the stipend, which was given on 14 January 2003, read as takes after:

For remarkable fortitude in April 1998 while selected to the Royal Canadian Regiment in Drvar in the midst of the crash in Bosnia-Hertzegovina. On two recorded occasions Sam demonstrated uncommon fortitude and devotion to commitment. On 18 April Sam adequately chop down a prepared man incapacitating the lives of normal people and Service staff. On 24 April, while guarding a compound harboring Serbian outcasts, Sam's bound and determined system held off fomenters until fortresses arrived. This current puppy's genuine valor saved the lives of various servicemen and normal individuals in the midst of this time of human crash.

His handler, Sergeant Carnegie, tagged in the wake of tolerating the after death reward for the profit of Sam that he could never have attempted to finish his commitments without Sam. He moreover defined that Sam never underpinned off when standing up to the revolting crowd.

Blog - Blurring with the mass media

Many bloggers, particularly those engaged in participatory journalism, differentiate themselves from the mainstream media, while others are members of that media working through a different channel. Some institutions see blogging as a means of "getting around the filter" and pushing messages directly to the public. Some critics worry that bloggers respect neither copyright nor the role of the mass media in presenting society with credible news. Bloggers and other contributors to user-generated content are behind Time magazine naming their 2006 person of the year as "You".

Many mainstream journalists, meanwhile, write their own blogs — well over 300, according to's J-blog list. The first known use of a blog on a news site was in August 1998, when Jonathan Dube of The Charlotte Observer published one chronicling Hurricane Bonnie.
Some bloggers have moved over to other media. The following bloggers (and others) have appeared on radio and television: Duncan Black (known widely by his pseudonym, Atrios), Glenn Reynolds (Instapundit), Markos Moulitsas ZĂșniga (Daily Kos), Alex Steffen (Worldchanging), Ana Marie Cox (Wonkette), Nate Silver (, and Ezra Klein (Ezra Klein blog in The American Prospect, now in the Washington Post). In counterpoint, Hugh Hewitt exemplifies a mass media personality who has moved in the other direction, adding to his reach in "old media" by being an influential blogger. Similarly, it was Emergency Preparedness and Safety Tips On Air and Online blog articles that captured Surgeon General of the United States Richard Carmona's attention and earned his kudos for the associated broadcasts by talk show host Lisa Tolliver and Westchester Emergency Volunteer Reserves-Medical Reserve Corps Director Marianne Partridge.

Blogs have also had an influence on minority languages, bringing together scattered speakers and learners; this is particularly so with blogs in Gaelic languages. Minority language publishing (which may lack economic feasibility) can find its audience through inexpensive blogging.

There are many examples of bloggers who have published books based on their blogs, e.g., Salam Pax, Ellen Simonetti, Jessica Cutler, ScrappleFace. Blog-based books have been given the name blook. A prize for the best blog-based book was initiated in 2005, the Lulu Blooker Prize. However, success has been elusive offline, with many of these books not selling as well as their blogs. Only blogger Tucker Max made the New York Times Bestseller List. The book based on Julie Powell's blog "The Julie/Julia Project" was made into the film Julie & Julia, apparently the first to do so.

Astilbe  is a genus of 18 species of perennial, herbaceous flowering plants, within the family Saxifragaceae. Some species are commonly known as False Goat's Beard, and False Spirea. Astilbe species are native to Asia and North America.

These hardy, herbaceous perennials are cultivated by gardeners for their large, handsome, often fern-like foliage, and dense, feathery plumes of flowers. Astilbes are widely recognized for their profuse blooms in full shade. They are widely adapted to water-logged conditions, and tolerate clay soils well. Numerous hybrids have been raised. Astilbe is a tall feathery flowered plant popular as a pond side feature, due to its previously described growing conditions.
