The number of Americans filing first-time claims for jobless benefits, already high, rose again last week.
Four-hundred and twenty-nine thousand people put in initial unemployment claims, the Labor Department said. That’s an increase of  9000 over last week’s revised figure of 420,000.

The four-week moving average, which is designed to smooth out volatility in the data, was unchanged from last week, at 426,250.

As we wait for June’s employment figures to be released next week, there’s little good news on the jobs front. Unemployment is at 9.1 percent, and employers created a paltry 54,000 jobs in May. The Federal Reserve yesterday lowered its projections for growth this year and next. It also raised its projections for unemployment.

Some people have advocated legalising dog eating so that the farming and slaughtering could be regulated. A little thought shows this to be a very wrong idea.

Jill Robinson of Animals Asia Foundation wrote:

" If approval was given to farm these dogs "humanely" the cruelty would simply
go underground – and would create a precedent for accepting dog consumption
in countries across Asia – including those where no anti-cruelty legislation
exists. Unlike other domestic animals raised for food, dogs are carnivores.
In intensive rearing situations they fight – sometimes to the death – over
water, food or even the right to lie down in cramped conditions. Dr. Les
Sims of the Hong Kong Government Agriculture Fisheries and Conservation
Department states that no country in the world has developed a humane way of
raising and slaughtering dogs and that, in their opinion, it cannot be done.
More and more people in Asia believe that dogs have earned their place in
society as companions and helpers – they want consumption of this species to
end. Hong Kong, the Philippines, and Taiwan have banned the practice – that
is the precedent to follow.

…..item 4)……REUTERS….Dog on the menu in Korea to beat the heat

By Tae-Yi Kim | Reuters – 14 hrs ago…..Thursday July 14, 2011

SEOUL (Reuters Life!) – Thursday was not a good day to be a dog in South Korea. That’s because it was one of the three hottest days according to the Korean lunar calendar — and dog soup is one way to beat the heat.

On "Chobok," people seeking to protect the body from overheating eat traditional healthy foods such as ginseng chicken soup, broiled eel, and "bo-shin-tang," literally "body preservation stew."

Dogs are bred to be eaten in South Korea, and advocates say bo-shin-tang, which consists of dog meat boiled in a mix of hot and strong spices and vegetables, is good for the health. It is considered a delicacy by some.

"The reason why I eat dog soup is because it boosts my energy, even when I’m most tired," said 56-year-old Shin Gwan-sup, sitting in a dog soup restaurant.

"Compared to other meats, it has more protein and less fat. I think it is healthy and clean, a more suitable meat for us."

The Korean practice of eating dog has drawn criticism from overseas for its cruelty, with French actress and animal rights activist Brigitte Bardot among some of the most vocal critics.

But Korean dog meat connoisseurs remain undaunted, with long lines forming on Thursday outside dog specialty restaurants.

Beating the heat was painful for diners this year, though, with the price of the ginseng chicken soup, or sangyetang, jumping. Severe rain has also pushed up the price of vegetables used in the soups.
