TEL AVIV (PRWEB) November 14, 2012

Online kids channel Toon Goggles, the innovative free portal that provides valuable viewing data to content producers, has teamed up with KIDO’Z , the experts in turning computers & mobile devices into safe environments for children to play with and learn through.

They are proud to announce that this collaboration will allow kids to watch an unlimited library of child and parent friendly animations, features, clips and programs, whilst they stay in the protected environment that the KIDO’Z platform provides.

“KIDO’Z content strategy was always to bring our users the best kids’ content out there”, said Gai Havkin, CEO of KIDO’Z. “Joining forces with Toon Goggles, and enabling its great multilingual cartoon library on the KIDO’Z platform is a great addition of fun & safe content for our global community”.

“We at Toon Goggles believe that children should have access to safe programming and through a safe portal,” said Stephen L. Hodge, Managing Director, Toon Goggles. “KIDO’Z has been a pioneer in this field for some time now and it was natural that we would join together to ensure that children are provided with entertaining and enriching content within a safe and protected environment. We look forward to seeing what this alliance will grow into.”

Newly Released Videos Show Wide-Spread Animal and Pet Starvation Inside the Fukushima Exclusion Zone


(PRWEB) May 09, 2011

Three videos recently published on Youtube indicate a wide-spread animal and pet emergency is still taking place inside the Fukushima exclusion zone.

April 22, the government has implemented a no-go law punishable by fines or imprisonment [1].

This policy has reportedly blocked access by private Animal Search and Rescue teams many of which have documented wide-spread starvation of the companion animals, pets, and livestock within the TEPCO exclusion zone.

Concerned citizens held a protest in Tokyo on May 8th, starting in the “Hachiko” Square and ending at TEPCO offices [2].

Photos available on the Angels 2005 Animal Rescue Team “Action Report Blog” show many pets have already starved to death [3].

On May 5th, PETA has issued an action alert which in part states [4]:

“Please urge the Japanese government to take immediate action to transfer farmed animals inside the 20-kilometer no-go zone to facilities where they can be cared for or to euthanize any animals who are suffering.”

PETA also provides a form email for readers to send:

“I was shocked to learn that the Japanese government has yet to take action to end the suffering of the estimated hundreds of thousands of farmed animals in the no-go zone around the Fukushima power plant.”

FIRST VIDEO:

“Individuals entering Fukushima no-go zone to feed and rescue dogs” (not suitable for children):

CONDENSED SUBTITLE TRANSCRIPTION FOLLOWS:

@0:00: The video opens in a parking lot with a skittish dog looking cautiously at the rescuers.

*BEEP*

*BEEP*

*BEEP*

A geiger counter sounds a warning, not just of detected radiation particles, but a warning that the animal rescue team is being over exposed to radiation.

The skittish dog approaches food scattered on the ground and begins eating.

Behind the car, a team member can be seen kneeling down to calm yet another dog on a leash.

A man says: 66.33mSv, then 68Its going to exceed 70 [mSv/hour]. Oh, it has exceed 70its already 71.16 mSv/hour. It gets really strong in the 2km zone. But this is still not too bad.

Speaking of the leashed dog: Well take you with us and hope well find the owner.

The team takes note of the dog and GPS location in order to find the owner.

Referring back to the skittish dog: Ok thenSee you next time then. You have to stay alive, ok?

@3:49: The team stops on a street in the middle of town. Piles of dog food can be seen in the street. Barking dogs can be heard inside the empty apartments along the street.

There are so many dogs barking. Urging his team to stay calm in the face of twenty or more dogs stranded in houses and potentially starving, the man says: Everyone, stay strong Well come back again.

@5:54: The team is back in the car driving through town. Dogs are wandering past on the street. Lets throw out lots of food. Everyone [the dogs] are waiting look. Stay strongYou tooPoor dogs

Other passenger: Throw the food out..More and more

Woman: Give a lot of food, we wont be able to feed them for a whileWe dont know when we can come back again in this situationJust give everything out.

The camera pans to the back seat, past the driver who is wearing a white radiation protective suit and googles. There are three dogs sitting in the back seat. Hey you guysWe are taking you guys with us, ok?

In yet a third video entitled “SOS Fukushima animals,” a Fukushima prefecture citizen has released a desperate plea of help, worried the animals may be starving and pleading for the government to provide rescue and shelter.

FULL SUBTITLE TRANSCRIPTION FOLLOWS

0:00: The video opens: “[SOS] Fukushima animals”

[The citizen bows to the camera. Reading from prepared notes, the citizen begins:]

Hello to everyone all over Japan. I am Meiko Yoshida, living in Odaku-ku, Minami Soma-shi, Fukushima-ken. My residence is at 17 km of the power plant.

March 11, 2011, the area was hit by the Eastern Japan mega earthquake as well as the tidal wave, followed by a series of accidents at TEPCO. The entire area of Odaka-ku, where we live, is within the 20 km radius. On March 12, the next day of the earthquake, TEPCO issued a voluntary evacuation order to Odaku-ku, which I was not aware of at the time.

The following day, on Sunday, March 13, I went to Odaka Ward Office, where I was told to evacuate immediately. The faces of the personnels then at the office were all devoid of expression like zombies while they worked. They knew what really happened in the power plant, that something horrible [had] happened, that is why their faces became like zombies.

Even though I was told to evacuate immediately, since I had nine cats to take care of at home, I had not been able to evacuate immediately. Several days later, on March 19, the Self-Defense Force members and the Ward Office personnels visited my home to persuade me to evacuate. I was told to leave the pets behind, and I left without them. At the time, I made a mistake of releasing my inside-living cats outdoors. I didnt have a mobile phone. I regret not having been able to consult with others who were in the same situation as myself.

Even at the evacuation center though, I was worried about my cats at home, so from March 19 until the midnight of April 21, I went back home every other day or two days to feed them food and water. During that period, six out of nine cats I released [had] been found and I have asked animal protection groups to look after them. One of the nine [has] died of a disease, and still now there are two remaining whom I have not been able to protect yet.

In the a.m. of April 21 it was just so sudden I heard that the 20 km area would become a severe cautionary zone. Before when I asked around when the off-limit will take effect, no one ever told me, but a bad news like that happened suddenly. Out of excessive worry, at around 23:00 on April 21, I went home but I was unable to provide them for protection. The cautionary zone became effective starting April 22, so I could no longer go back to my house. I had been asking the police officers at the checkpoint how I can get inside, [and they] told me that I need to obtain a permit from the city mayor, so I also went and appealed directly to the city mayor. So I went back and forth between the citys municipal office and the public health department, and asked to be permitted inside the zone, but it just could not be done.

The other day, on April 28, the public health department went inside the 20 km zone for the purpose of doing research; however this was for inspection only, so they could pick up wandering animals from the road. But no helping hand was extended for the cats and dogs who were left inside homes. When you rescue animals, time allowance is needed to carry out the task, but being told it starts tomorrow so suddenly, I was not able to carry out rescue.

At evacuation centers, there are MANY people who were told the same way and could not even prepare for evacuation, nor could they take their pets with them to evacuate. Those people are so worried about their pets living without them, their heartache is so severe that they cant sleep for nights; they cant even eat

Center for Pet Safety Videos Show Graphic Failure of Pet Auto Restraints


Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 10, 2012

The Center for Pet Safety has released the videos from their recently announced crashworthiness pilot study of canine automotive restraints. The harnesses were tested by third-party independent test laboratory, MGA Research Corporation, to conditions of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213 for child safety restraints.

During the crash simulations the specially developed crash dogs were subjected to standardized crash conditions while wearing popular pet travel harnesses that are widely promoted to protect pets during an automobile accident.

The purpose of releasing the videos is to illustrate the necessity for standards and test protocols for pet products the focus of the Centers mission. The four harnesses tested as part of the control group experienced multipoint failures, including complete separation from the connection point at the time of impact and one very gruesome result when the adjustment buckles slipped, allowing the harness to move upward and decapitate the test dog.

The first of the four videos shows a multi-point failure of the harness at the time of impact and the specially designed crash test dog is slammed at full speed into the back of the front bench seat. No protection would be provided to either the dog or to vehicle occupants in similar crash conditions.

“These are very disturbing videos. They indicate the type of failures we expect to see when most of the pet travel restraints are measured against standardized crash conditions, says Lindsey Wolko, founder and chairman of the Center for Pet Safety, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which is undertaking a study to define safe travel for companion animals and their owners in a moving vehicle. Currently, animal restraints are not held to specific safety standards and testing by the manufacturer is not a requirement.

Although not identified in the study, the control group of harnesses tested are considered quality brands within the pet product industry and are widely marketed as safety devices for companion animal travel. The harness size selection for the CPS pilot study was based on the American Kennel Clubs Most Popular Dog Breed List from 2010, where six of the top ten dog breeds were within the large harness category. A realistic crash test dog was specially designed, weighted and instrumented for data collection.

Wolko says she struggled with releasing the videos: “These are horrific images of our realistic test dog enduring standardized crash conditions while wearing a safety harness that was designed to protect it. The videos are disturbing and viewer discretion is advised.
