Rarely seen, Pete Evans and his wife Nicola Robinson have walked their dog in Bondi, two years after he was sacked for sharing a neo-Nazi meme on Facebook

Disgraced former celebrity chef Pete Evans and his wife Nicola Robinson were pictured for the first time in months as they stepped out in Sydney on Friday.

The 49-year-old, who hosted My Kitchen Rules on Channel Seven before his public fall, dressed casually while the couple walked their dog in Bondi.

He wore a black sweater and shorts with a pair of brown boots and sported an unusual haircut with shaved sides and a mullet at the back.

Nicola, a former model from New Zealand, wore comfortable black skinny jeans, a yellow t-shirt and sandals.

It’s the first time Peter and Nicola have been seen out and about since attending the Byron Bay Bluesfest in April.

In a photo posted to Instagram, Nicola unveiled a new look at the festival with silver-grey hair and a bushy beard.

The Bluesfest sighting comes after Pete made headlines for suggesting Covid-19 vaccines played a role in the deaths of cricketing greats Shane Warne and Rod Marsh.

As social media tributes poured in for the popular sporting icons, anti-vaccination trolls hijacked the devastating news to spread absurd conspiracies about Covid-19.

Footage has been circulating online of Pete, shot during a Zoom call, apparently showing him paying tribute to Shane.

He admitted he could not specifically comment on the reasons for his death, but then ranted about Covid vaccines.

Pete’s fall from grace began in May 2020 when he left Channel Seven after 10 years as a judge at MKR alongside Manu Feildel and Colin Fassnidge.

It effectively marked his break with the mainstream after years of flirting with offbeat ideas during his tenure with the network.

Free from the contractual constraints of mainstream television, Pete began sharing his non-scientific beliefs about vaccines and the Covid-19 pandemic on social media.

Its Instagram page was taken down in February last year, and the company issued a statement that read: “We do not allow anyone to share misinformation about Covid-19 that could result in imminent physical harm, or about Covid-19 Vaccines debunked by public health experts.’

Also, in November 2020, he was dropped by 15 sponsors and companies within 48 hours after posting a neo-Nazi meme on social media. He also missed an appearance on Channel 10’s I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

In May 2021, Pete was fined $80,000 for attempting to cash in on Covid again by lashing out at more fake treatments online.

It was the second time he had run into trouble with authorities, having previously been fined $25,000 for attempting to sell his so-called BioCharger on Facebook for $15,000 apiece.

He insisted the light could cure Covid-19 and protect users from infection, but had no evidence to back the wild claims.

What Foods Can You Feed Your Dog for Thanksgiving? http://dogdoright.com/what-foods-can-you-feed-your-dog-for-thanksgiving/ Fri, 18 Nov 2022 03:48:52 +0000 http://dogdoright.com/what-foods-can-you-feed-your-dog-for-thanksgiving/

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Wed Thanksgiving Just around the corner, you might be wondering what litter is safe to give to your pup.

“Thanksgiving typically coincides with a surge in vet visits as dogs are fed unsafe human food,” explains the American Kennel Club (AKC).

The AKC, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and several veterinarians including Dr. Gary Richter, author of The Ultimate Pet Health Guide: Breakthrough Nutrition and Integrative Care for Dogs and Cats, Dr. Gary Richter, MS, DVM, Texas Small Animal and Exotics Vet Dr. Sara Ochoa, DVM and Chief Veterinary Officer of the American Kennel Club, emergency and critical care veterinarian and a valued member of the Chicago veterinary community for over 35 years, Dr. Jerry Klein, share articles that are safe and unsafe for your pet this holiday season.

Safe and Healthy Foods to Feed Your Dog(s) for Thanksgiving:

  • sweet potatoes
    • “Sweet potatoes are a great source of fiber, vitamin B6, vitamin C, and beta-carotene,” says Dr. Judge. “Sweet potato treats can be as simple as a dehydrated yam chew.” Just remember not to give your pet yams with added ingredients.
  • potatoes
    • You can enjoy either type of potato, and your dog can have that option too. However, only give it boiled or baked potatoes without butter, sour cream, Saltor pepper, and serve in moderation.
  • apples
    • apples are full of vitamins A and C and are high in fiber, making them a healthy Thanksgiving treat for your pet,” says Dr. Judge. “However, if you’re sharing an apple with your pooch, be sure to cut around the core, as large amounts of apple cores can be toxic.”
  • Turkey meat (boneless or skinless)
    • For those wondering if dogs can eat turkey on Thanksgiving, the answer is yes. The main course is fine “as long as it’s not seasoned,” says Dr. Ochoa. In addition to avoiding bones as described above, Dr. Small to the owners, even to abandon the feeding of the skin. The poultry’s outer layer was likely prepared with butter, spices, or other fatty ingredients that may cause it pancreatitis or other problems for your dog.
  • Green beans
    • “With plenty of plant fiber, manganese, and vitamins C and K, plain green beans are great for dogs,” says Dr. Judge. The key here, as with turkey, sweet potatoes, and other options mentioned in this list, is that the bean dish should be simple — with no added ingredients like butter or spices.
  • Peas
    • Unadorned Peas are a good choice, but creamed peas should be avoided. Fattier foods like pea cream can upset your dog’s stomach.
  • pumpkin
  • dessert
    • Dessert is an option, but not just any kind. Go ahead and satisfy your pet’s sweet tooth with something healthy like frozen yogurt (free of artificial sweeteners such as yogurt). xylitol, which is poisonous to dogs), suggests Dr. judge before. Calcium, protein and live bacteria, which can act as probiotics, give your dog a tasty dose of nutrients and a sweet post-meal treat.

Unsafe and Unhealthy Foods to Avoid Feeding Your Dog(s) on Thanksgiving:

The AKC also wants to remind dog and pet owners to keep trash cans out of reach, as the scents of the meal of the day can be tempting to furry friends.

If your dog gets into something he shouldn’t have, the AKC says to seek help immediately. You can call them Pet Poison Control Center at 855-764-7661 ($75 fee) or at a local veterinarian who offers after-hours services.

The first canine biobank in Westies is launched to support human and canine health research efforts http://dogdoright.com/the-first-canine-biobank-in-westies-is-launched-to-support-human-and-canine-health-research-efforts/ Mon, 14 Nov 2022 18:25:00 +0000 http://dogdoright.com/the-first-canine-biobank-in-westies-is-launched-to-support-human-and-canine-health-research-efforts/

Westies could be the key to deadly diseases in humans and dogs

The Westie Foundation of America and Resero Genomics Announce Alliance for Canine Genetics and DNA Banking

This is a significant milestone in our efforts to accelerate science for our dogs and humans through our One Health approach.”

– Bebe Pinter, President of the Westie Foundation of America

HOUSTON, TX, November 14, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — That Westie Foundation of America (WFA), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the health and welfare of the West Highland White Terrier, and resero genomicsa leading global genomics service provider, today announced an alliance that will provide the first West Highland White Terrier biobank in the world.

The preservation of Westie DNA samples will provide a tool to better understand diseases affecting the West Highland White Terrier as well as other dog breeds. It will also provide DNA sources for research efforts by both veterinary and human researchers working to solve some of the most devastating diseases affecting both dogs and humans.

“The WFA is honored to partner with Resero Genomics on this monumental step for the health of our Westie breed,” said Bebe Pinter, President of the Westie Foundation of America. “This is a significant milestone in our efforts to accelerate science for our dogs and humans through our One Health approach.”

Known as One Health, the translational benefits of researching naturally occurring diseases are increasingly recognized in both the veterinary and human sciences. Comparing pet disease information with human disease has been shown to significantly reduce the time it takes for a given therapy to travel from the bench to the bed of human patients and dogs. Diseases such as cancer, fibrosis and atopic dermatitis, which are relatively common in pets, are in urgent need of therapy. These naturally occurring models can often provide a more accurate disease model than many mouse models that are currently in widespread use and are known to have limitations and often cannot be extrapolated to humans.

One Health continues to gain traction as a viable and important part of human research. Recently, US Senator Kristen Gillibrand introduced a landmark One Health Act to prevent, detect and respond to biological threats. You can find more information about the invoice here:

https://www.gillibrand.senate.gov/news/press/release/senator-gillibrand-introduces-groundbreaking-one-health-bill-to-prevent-detect-and-respond-to-biological-threats

In particular, naturally occurring diseases in dogs have helped usher in therapeutics for humans, including for bladder and other forms of cancer. For fibrosis, particularly idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, the most common interstitial lung disease and a fatal disease without life-saving therapy. Mouse models often show positive results in multiple drug trials, only to later fail in human trials, costing years of research efforts and billions of dollars in funding, and yielding heartbreaking results for patients, families, and the medical experts who help them. Having genetic information about animals suffering from diseases like ILD offers an opportunity to help them and the people who are suffering.

“Since we first introduced our DNA banking services to dog owners, we’ve had tremendous success,” said Jared Larsen, genomics manager at Resero Genomics. “Those who have chosen to be part of our research program have enabled Resero to make significant advances in understanding genetic abnormalities in various dog breeds, and we are excited to continue that progress.”

DNA storage
Resero Genomics, which has been successfully storing and maintaining both animal and human DNA since 2003, focuses on providing secure long-term DNA storage. The Westie Foundation of America Biobank offers Westie owners the opportunity to record their animals’ DNA. Westie owners can learn more about requesting a kit to add their dogs DNA to the biobank by visiting: http://westiefoundation.org/BioBank

The WFA worked with Westie owners to collect DNA samples for medical and veterinary research: erinarians. An article by Tufts explains the importance of their One Health study: https://now.tufts.edu/2020/02/18/terriers-test-therapy-lung-disease. WFA has provided DNA samples worldwide and the new biobank program will serve to simplify the process and complete research faster. With direct grants and support for more than 50 studies worldwide, WFA has made an impact on Westie health. In fact, a major investment in research into a deadly condition called Craniomandibular Osteopathy (CMO) led to a critical review of the condition. https://westiefoundation.org/files/galleries/cmo-ebook.pdf

All Westies are welcome to be included in the biobank. To learn how to order a sample collection kit, visit: https://westiefoundation.org/BioBank

Temporary closure of Eastern Reserve North Dog Park in South Melbourne http://dogdoright.com/temporary-closure-of-eastern-reserve-north-dog-park-in-south-melbourne/ Fri, 11 Nov 2022 05:38:00 +0000 http://dogdoright.com/temporary-closure-of-eastern-reserve-north-dog-park-in-south-melbourne/

This is a precautionary measure to ensure that the ground cover continues to act as a barrier to contaminated soil throughout the park.

Part of the park with intact ground cover will reopen on Monday after the arrival of the temporary fence. The rest of the park remains closed pending a surface improvement. We will do this as soon as possible so that the entire reserve can continue to be used as a dog park.

As with many parks in our city, soil contamination is not uncommon. Because of this, we have contamination management plans across our city that require a physical barrier to separate contaminated soil from the surface.

We have already investigated whether the land cover at this site still prevents contaminated soil from being exposed. On-site inspections have shown that some parts of the park have started to deteriorate. There is no evidence that potential exposure to contaminated soil poses a health risk to park users, including dogs. However, as safety is a priority, we are temporarily closing the park as a precautionary measure to ensure ground cover provides an adequate barrier against contaminated soil.

An already ongoing community consultation on how best to enhance the park’s surface will continue as planned through November 16. The results are taken into account when deciding on surface improvements.

We know our residents and their four-legged friends love our beautiful outdoor spaces, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

While the Eastern Reserve is closed, you can try nearby alternative off-leash dog parks at Albert Park, Gasworks Arts Park, and the fenced-in Kingsway dog ​​park. The newly opened and gated MO Moran Reserve dog park at Elwood Foreshore is another great resource for our community.
