American Kennel Club Welcomes New Dog Breeds
The American Kennel Club, or AKC, has increased its membership. New to the AKC pack are an energetic dog whose main interests is ducks and a friendly dog that would rather chase rabbits.

The American Kennel Club announced Wednesday that it is recognizing the Nederlandse kooikerhondje and the grand basset griffon Vendeen. They are the first breeds added to the roster in two years.

The newly added breeds are permitted to compete in many dog shows this year. But they are not yet able to take part in the biggest show; they will have to wait until 2019 to enter the Westminster Kennel Club show, held in New York City.

The Nederlandse kooikerhondje have been around for hundreds of years in Holland. They are called Kooikers for short. The pretty brown-and-white dogs can be seen in some Dutch Old Master paintings.

D. Ann Knoop-Siderius breeds kooikers.

“They're actually like a toddler that never grows up,'' she said. She describes the dogs as happy, sometimes naughty and “very playful.”

Kooikers were trained to help hunters move ducks into water traps called koois. The practice fell from popularity in the 1800s and the dogs almost disappeared.

There are now about 7,000 left worldwide. The first recorded American litter was born in 1999. It is still a rare breed in the country, with about 500 in the U.S.

Kooikers will compete in the sporting dog group.

The grand basset griffon Vendeen goes by “GBGV'' for short. The basset breed has deep roots in Europe. A smaller cousin, the petit basset griffon Vendeen, and the long-eared basset hound have been recognized by the AKC for many years.

GBGVs have long, rough fur. They are native to France. They weigh around 18 to 20 kilograms and stand fairly low to the ground. They are members of the hound group. GBGVs are known for their speed, lasting energy and good-natured personalities.

Megan Esherick is a dog trainer in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She also owns a 9-year-old GBGV named Juno. She says the breed is “pretty laid-back.”

“They're happy to get up and do things if you ask them to, but they're not particularlybusy, in terms of pacing back and forth or throwing a ball in your lap,'' she said. Juno has competed in agility, obedience and other events.

Experts say GBGVs enjoy children and family life but are not easy to train. The breed might not be the best choice for a first-time dog owner.

The AKC is the nation's oldest purebred dog registry. It recognizes 192 breeds, from silky Afghan hounds to the xoloitzcuintlis, also called the Mexican hairless dog.

The AKC does not consider recognition of a breed unless there are at least 300 of the dogs spread across at least 20 states.

Some animal-rights supporters say working to increase interest in purebreds is wrong. They say it leads to cruel breeding operations. Activists also argue that too many dogs are in public shelters already and need owners.

The AKC says responsible breeding permits people to choose pets with somewhat predictable characteristics. The club also notes that mixed-breed dogs compete in many events it supports, such as agility and obedience competitions.

'Cold Feet' and Other Cold Body Expressions

And now, the VOA Learning English program Words and Their Stories.

Cold weather has a great effect on how our minds and our bodies work. Perhaps that is why we have so many expressions that combine the word “cold” with body parts.

The most straightforward example is the adjective coldhearted. Just as it sounds, a coldhearted person is distant and, well, cold. An action can be coldhearted as well. This would be one that shows no love or sympathy.

There are many songs about coldhearted men or coldhearted women who, without feeling, broke the hearts of their lovers.

In the 1988 song, Cold Hearted, Paula Abdul sings about the coldhearted man who broke her heart.

He's a coldhearted snake, look into his eyes,
Oh, oh he's been telling lies. He's a lover boy at play,
He don't play by the rules oh, oh, oh ...

The song was a huge hit.

It seems a trend may have been set. In 2010, the Zac Brown Band released a song with the exact same name.

Pretty little words covered your dark and crooked heart
With a forked tongue I fell in love,
Then I fell apart
You are so
Cold hearted

Other similar adjectives often get a hyphen, like cold-blooded. Reptiles, amphibians and most fish are cold-blooded animals. This means they are unable to control their own body temperature. Mammals, on the other hand, are warm-blooded -- well, for the most part. There are some people in the world you could call cold-blooded.

People who show no emotions or feelings are often described as cold-blooded. Cold-blooded people are hard to get close to. And they often do terrible things, on purpose.

For example, the police might look for someone they call a cold-blooded killer. The person killed someone without any understandable cause - not in self-defense, fear or even anger. Killing for no reason is often called cold-blooded.

Okay, enough of cold-blooded people. Let’s go back to fish!

As we said earlier, most are cold-blooded. So, calling a striped bass or rainbow trout a “cold fish” is fine. They would not be insulted…if they could be insulted.

But calling a person a “cold fish” is an insult.

cold fish is a person who is unfriendly, unemotional and shows no love or warmth. Cold fish do not offer much of themselves to anyone.

However, not everyone who doesn’t show their feelings is a cold fish. Some people keep their feelings to themselves until they know you better. We could describe these people with the expression cold hands, warm heart.

This means that a person may be very kind and warm. But they just don’t show their feelings very easily. Take my friend Celeste as an example. She doesn’t normally show her feelings. But she is always ready to help and is very kind. She is a classic case of cold hands, warm heart.

Speaking of hands, the hands and feet are some of the first body parts to feel the cold. Getting cold feet is no fun – outdoors or in conversation.

To get cold feet means to become afraid to do something you had already decided to do. We use this expression in situations that make us nervous or afraid -- from leading a big meeting at work to singing on stage in front of strangers.

But we commonly use it in connection with weddings. People who are about to get married may begin to feel nervous as the day nears. They begin to question if they should take such a big step. If a bride shares these feelings of nervousness and uncertainty, a relative or friend might answer with “Don’t worry! This is a classic case of cold feet!”

Another body part involved in our cold expressions today is the shoulder.

You give someone the cold shoulder when you refuse to speak to them. You ignore them. The expression probably comes from the physical act of turning your back toward someone. You may give a cold shoulder to a friend who has broken a promise, or to someone who has said mean things about others.

Well, that brings us to the end of this Words and Their Stories.

In the Comments Section, let us know what you think of today’s show. We try to answer as many comments as we can. But unfortunately we can’t respond to all. So, if you don’t get a reply, please know we’re not giving you the cold shoulder.

I'm Anna Matteo.

Suthichai an inspiration for generations of journalists

national January 13, 2018 01:00

By KITTIPONG THAVEVONG 
THE NATION

MEDIA LEADER and respected veteran journalist Suthichai Yoon yesterday announced his retirement from the Nation Multimedia Group (NMG), which has grown into a multimedia giant after he co-founded a daily English newspaper 47 years ago.

Colleagues and staff praised him as a visionary leader, a teacher, an inspiration and an outstanding example for media people.

Having been in the industry since the age of 21, Suthichai, now 71, said at his farewell party yesterday that he was proud of the high standards and ethical values followed by NMG.

During his speech, he held up a little book titled “The Nation Way”, which outlines the code of conduct for NMG’s editorial staff, while stressing that the determination to abide by the self-imposed rules has won public faith for the “Nation brand”.

“We are honest in doing our duty and we do our duty like professionals,” he said.

 

Suthichai, who co-founded The Nation newspaper, and is also a former NMG chairman, said he believed that compliance with ethical values and high standards in performing duties would be the key in helping media people survive the current digital disruption.

For almost five decades, Suthichai has expressed his opinions regularly through his newspaper columns. He has also been active in conducting daily Facebook Live interviews with experts and celebrities on various issues.

Suthichai, who is a member of the government-appointed media reform committee, said that after his retirement from NMG he would write a book about “lessons from the past”, which would help journalists in the digital media age adapt to the changing consumer demands. 

Also, he would focus on social work and find ways to improve the work and quality of the media at a time when the main goal is retaining audience ratings.

“I am afraid that if we continue to focus on ratings, in the next three to five years we may not see the media as it is today,” he warned.

At the farewell party held at the Nation University building, Suthichai was mobbed by colleagues, Nation alumni and well-wishers who posed for photographs with him.

Suthichai’s younger brother Thepchai Yong, the chief executive of the NMG, told the huge crowd at yesterday’s farewell party that Suthichai had been an inspiration to his colleagues by serving as a good example.

He said that under Suthichai’s leadership, The Nation had boldly challenged military dictatorships and authoritarian civilian rule.

He pointed out many Suthichai “firsts” in the Thai media industry. These included the first English-language newspaper wholly owned by Thais, the first daily business newspaper (Krungthep Turakij), the first public television iTV, and the first non-government radio news programme.

Pana Janviroj, The Nation’s president, said at the farewell party that while US President Donald Trump’s motto is “America first”, Suthichai’s has been “Thailand’s press freedom first”.

He noted that under Suthichai’s leadership, The Nation had spearheaded the campaign to abolish a post-coup order restricting media freedom. He was also behind the formation of the National Press Council.

Also, Suthichai co-founded Asia News Network, an alliance of the continent’s leading media groups that began with seven members and now boasts a membership of 24 media outlets from 20 countries.

Political News Editor Somroutai Sapsomboon said that over the past 24 years working at NMG, she had learned a lot about media professionalism while associating closely with Suthichai when she co-hosted the “Emergency Newsroom” TV programme with the veteran journalist.

“What I learnt from Khun Suthichai is that, ‘Don’t think that what you do is already perfect. If you think so, you will not learn anything. You have to find out what mistakes you made today so that you will do better tomorrow’,” she said. 

Somroutai added that she always regarded Suthichai as an exemplary journalist who has never stopped improving himself.

Nation TV reporter Tanpisit Lerdbamrungchai, who was one of Suthichai’s students at Nation University, said that “Ajahn Suthichai” taught very little about covering news in his class. 

“He sent the students to different Nation Group newsrooms so they could learn on the job. I was sent to The Nation’s editorial section, where I started covering news for the first time in my life,” he said.

Suthichai began his journalistic career at the Bangkok Post in 1968, where he worked as a proofreader. At that time, he was also studying communication arts at Chulalongkorn University but later had to drop out because his work hours did not permit him to attend classes.

He became an assistant news chief at the English-language newspaper and later was promoted as its local news editor, despite his young age and lack of a diploma. 

On July 1, 1971, after the Bangkok Post took over the other English-language daily in what Suthichai perceived as a move to monopolise the market, he joined his journalist allies in setting up the country’s first English-language newspaper to be wholly owned by Thais. It was called The Voice of The Nation, which would later be known as The Nation Review five years later, and The Nation now.

Massage parlour raided for sex trafficking

Breaking News January 12, 2018 17:10

The Department of Special Investigation (DSI) joined with the Army and police to raid a massage parlour in Bangkok’s Rama 9 area on Friday over allegations of human trafficking and prostitution of girls under 18.

DSI deputy chief Pol Colonel Songsak Raksaksakul led DSI officers, soldiers and administrative officials in a raid of “Victoria’s: The Secret Forever” massage parlour – with an arrest warrant for a man identified as “Kob”.

The operation was also backed by a warrant to search the premises for Kob, who reportedly worked there as an “enticer”, and to gather related incriminated evidence.

It remained unclear whether the suspect was taken into custody in the raid.

The case stemmed from a previous complaint by Alliance Anti Trafic (AAT), which had rescued a Myanmar girl under 18 who had been lured into prostitution at the age of 12.

 

DSI had taken up the case investigation last year as the case reportedly linked criminals in Thailand, Myanmar and Malaysia who preyed on girls under 18. It was alleged the gang had recruited virgin underage girls from outside Thailand to provide sex services. The girls were then sent to perform sex work at the Bangkok massage parlour – a form of human trafficking. 

The ongoing case investigation had identified seven suspects now covered by court-ordered arrest warrants, including Kob.
