Puppies reach 'maximum cuteness' at this exact age

  Puppies reach 'maximum cuteness' at this exact age Animal lovers may find dogs cute at any age, but a new study gets down to specifics.The study, published in this May's Anthrozoös: A Multidisciplinary Journal of the Interactions of People and Animals, revealed that 8 weeks old is the age when people find pups most attractive. Even more interesting, that's the same time when a mother dog leaves her puppies to fend for themselves, and when they're most vulnerable.

You already know that TSA stands for Transportation Security Administration (or if you didn’t, now you do), but apart from the obvious—checking for off-limits items—do you know what role they play in the travel industry?

Earlier this month, news circulated that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) was considering removing passenger screening at national airports. The TSA shut that report down pretty quickly. Now, though, the TSA has hinted that it will make a big change to security—and dogs will be involved.

In a conversation with USA Today earlier this week, TSA chief David Pekoske said that he hopes to add more dogs to the agency's security measures in the next year. Passengers "swept" (read: sniffed) by the dogs would then be able to move through the security line faster, Pekoske said. These pre-sniffed passengers won't be shuffled into the PreCheck lane: instead, they'll get their own, where possible. (No word yet on just how you'll get selected by the dog.) Tests will begin in late fall and run through early 2019, Pekoske said.

The Transportation Security Administration also will move to accelerate the hiring of 768 new security officers it had planned to bring on during 2016 The union representing TSA officers called on Congress to pass emergency legislation funding the hiring of an additional 6,000 full-time screeners.

But back to PreCheck: What about all of those members who have paid $85 for expedited screening, when people will soon be able to pass through, free of charge, just having been sniffed? Pekoske said he can see why they'd be unhappy, but that the ultimate goal still remains for travelers to sign up for PreCheck. "That’s better security for us, and it ends up being better convenience for the passengers," he said.
