My name is Katherine. I'm a research assistant at the University of Connecticut.
I just had to reach out to thank you for providing such great resources on your page: https://www.school-for-champions.com/behavior/resources.htm
I am currently doing a study on web-based dissemination of canine nutrition information and while doing my research, I came across your page and found it to be a great reference. I was surprised at the wealth of data available and it significantly helped trim my timeline.
As a small token of my appreciation, I thought of sending along a resource that I came across my research: https://www.pawstruck.com/blogs/news/ultimate-guide-to-dog-care-from-puppy-to-senior
This one provides information on dog care but for first-time dog owners and has really great content visuals. I'm hoping it would help a lot of your readers as much as it helped me. If you wouldn't mind adding them to your resources.
Thanks again and hope to hear back from you soon!

what is meant by the term ultrasonic sound?

Ultrasonic sound consists of sound waves with frequencies above the upper limit of human hearing. An example of such high frequency sound (or ultrasonic sound) is a dog whistle that has such a high pitch that humans cannot hear it.
Baby squirrel lost its tail

Baby squirrel lose its tail ...how we can help
How much time its take to grow again
Jagriti - India (29467)
Losing its tail is often a mechanism to save the squirrel's life when attacked. Unfortunately, the tail does not grow back, and the loss of it affects the life of the squirrel.
See What Happens When A Squirrel Loses Its Tail? for good information on the subject.

I wanted to say how great I find your website! I stumbled across is while searching for data resources.
I noticed your roll-up of SQL resources (https://www.school-for-champions.com/sql/resources.htm#.XqmVMUdKiHs). I recently published a comprehensive introduction to SQL that includes a free PDF download of the entire tutorial, a SQL cheat sheet, and a database to follow along with.
I was wondering if you might be willing to include it? It's linked here if you'd like to check it out: https://datagy.io/sql-beginners-tutorial/
If there's something I can do for you, please let me know!
Best regards and thanks for the great content!

Angle of swing
April 29, 2020
What does the angle of swing depend on.
In a Cuckoo Clock, how can I make the angle of swing bigger
Sam - Singapore (29464)
In a Cuckoo Clock, the pendulum is usually driven be a spring mechanism that also limits the angle. The length of the pendulum wire affects the angle.
In some clocks, the pendulum can be physically started at any angle, but that also affects how long it will operate.

just wanted to say I very much like your down-to-earth website... I am a practical philosopher working on what is the best way to put across my thoughts to a very diverse audience without it being too academic (for those that might need help the most).

Wants replacement pots
April 22, 2020
I bought my Prudential waterless cookware in 1965 with a lifetime warranty. I ruined 2 of pots on a glass top stove. How can I find this company to request replacements. The other pieces still look brand new. yes, I have put the large fry pan in the oven no hotter than 350. then i oiled the handles with mineral oil and they still look great! Thank you for your help.
Carol - USA (29451)
It is great that your cookware has lasted so long, and it is too bad you ruin 2 pots.
Apparently, EKCO Prudential is out of business. However, I have seen many pots for sale on eBay and similar sites. Do a Google search on the brand name, and perhaps you can find some replacements.
Best wishes for success in your cooking.

Choosing foods to eat
April 13, 2020
Good day, I am from South Africa, I was looking at the intermittent fasting diet but there is foods on that I don't know at all, can I choose the green veggies that I know for instance broccoli, cauliflower, baby marrows etc. and the salmon to tuna.
Vicki - South Africa (29434)
It is the most convenient to choose the foods and vegetables that your are familiar with and are ready available. However, you should use some caution in eating tuna because some can contain a small amount of mercury, which is unhealthful.
Best wishes on a good, healthy diet.
Mass and gravity
April 9, 2020
The mass of the earth is listed in many places on the internet as 81 times the mass of the moon.
The gravity on the moon is generally agreed to be one sixth of that on the earth. How do you reconcile these figures?
Is the relationship linear?
Benjamin Hills - USA (29427)
That is a dilly of a problem. Gravity on the Moon relates to both the ratio of the masses and the square of the ratio of the radius of the Moon and Earth.
I put together a new page that goes through an explanation of how the gravity on the Moon is 1/6 of on the Earth. See:
Gravity on Earth versus on Moon.
I hope that clarifies things.
Building a face mask
April 8, 2020
Hi im building my own face mask out of hepa filter and finely grounded activated carbon charcoal powder grounded in a coffee filter but how do i electro-charge the mask? That's the last thing I'm trying to figure out then i can be done. Please help and thanks
Riley - USA (29425)
That is a clever idea to try to static charge the face mask to attract and filter particles.
One problem is that the static charges would probably dissipate into the air. Also, do you want virus particles to collect on the face mask?
I think a bigger concern is air leaking around the edges where the mask fits on your face.
Let me know how you progress on your idea.
