John Kasich: ‘Tonight the light overcame the darkness’

Ohio Gov. John Kasich toiled at more than 100 town hall meetings in New Hampshire, sticking to an above-the-fray message as the mudslinging and the name-calling from his chief rivals reached epic peaks.

And on Tuesday, as he surveyed a rowdy crowd in a Concord hotel ballroom, he relished in his surge from the middle of the crowded field to a second-place finish as a vindication of his strategy.

“We never went negative because we have more to sell than spending our time being critical,” he said. “Maybe, just maybe, we are turning the page on a dark part of American politics. Tonight the light overcame the darkness.”

It came at the expense of other mainstream rivals all jockeying for the same narrow space as the mainstream alternative to Donald Trump, who easily won Tuesday’s primary, and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. And it didn’t hurt that Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie relentlessly sniped at each other, leaving him an opening.

For Kasich, challenges await in the South. With Bush and Rubio vowing to fight on – Christie signaled he would take a break from the campaign after his sixth place finish – there is not as much room in the so-called establishment lane in the Feb. 20 GOP primary in South Carolina.

And he has little of the ground game in South Carolina and the rest of the South that he painstakingly built in New Hampshire over months of visits to the Granite State.

Tuesday, though, was a time for Kasich to savor the second-place finish. He said his experience crisscrossing New Hampshire encouraged him to spend more time listening to voters and to take stock in their concerns.

“There’s magic in the air with this campaign,” said Kasich. “We don’t see it as just another campaign. We see it as an opportunity for something bigger.”

Researchers say horses can recognize our facial expressions

Man’s best friend may have some competition. New research shows horses may be just as good at understanding humans as dogs are. At least when it comes to us being angry. 

Researchers at the University of Sussex showed photographs of unfamiliar men to 28 horses and measured their spontaneous reactions. The photographs either showed a man with an angry or a happy face.

Researcher Amy Smith said, "The reaction to the angry facial expressions was particularly clear — there was a quicker increase in their heart rate, and the horses moved their heads to look at the angry faces with their left eye."

That left eye behavior is something researchers say dogs do, too. Experts think it has to do with how the brain’s hemispheres process threatening stimuli.

Smith said: "It’s interesting to note that the horses had a strong reaction to the negative expressions but less so to the positive. ... In this context, recognizing angry faces may act as a warning system, allowing horses to anticipate negative human behavior such as rough handling."

So is this ability to read human emotions something that was adapted over time or is it just a horse-by-horse scenario? Hard to tell. But it’s likely something that researchers will continue to look into as they study the relationship between the animal’s emotional skills and social behavior.

This dog is incredibly excited to meet Pluto at Disneyland

Ace, a guide dog in training, was on a trip at Disneyland in January when he couldn't contain his excitement.

He met Pluto, the famous Disney dog.

His volunteer trainer, Sandy Steinblums, can be heard on a Facebook video of the meet and greet asking Ace to "stay" and lay "down."

The Dodo reported that Steinblums gave some background for those who didn't know Ace's story in a comment.

"This puppy is one I raised (as a volunteer) for Guide Dogs of America (in California). He is training to be a guide dog for the blind. We went to Disneyland for a few hours as a socialization experience," Steinblums said. "What you didn't see after the 14-15 seconds of video where he settled in a "down" was his "down/stay" for a few minutes while Pluto tried to break his stay."

Steinblums said Ace started his formal training with the organization in January.

As a volunteer, she gets guide dogs socialized and gives them obedience training.

The trip to Disneyland gave Steinblums the opportunity to give Ace more real world training.

"I am proud of him and love the Disney characters for being so kind and helpful," she said.

After six to nine months of work with licensed trainers, Ace, like many guide dogs in training, will have the opportunity to graduate and be matched as a guide dog to a person in need.
