Mars Veterinary are excited to bring you an incredible product targeted to owners of dogs. Wisdom Panel® Canine DNA Test — Dogs can’t talk, but their DNA can.™ Wisdom Panel provides a cheek swab DNA test designed to reveal the ancestry of dogs, going back three generations. Knowing a dog’s breed helps owners target behavior training, be smarter about nutritional planning and plan exercise activities that make the dog happy. The tests are easy to use and Wisdom Panel provides owners with an easy to read, detailed report on the dog’s breed results. Optimal Selection™ Genetic Breeding Analysis Mars Veterinary, the makers of Optimal Selection™ have partnered with Genoscoper Laboratories® of Finland to provide breeders with the ability to test for both breed-specific diseases and genetic diversity. Maintaining and increasing genetic diversity, may reduce the occurrence of inherited diseases and other known issues that can result from inbreeding. Testing for genetic diversity can help breeders decrease the incidence of producing affected puppies with recessively inherited diseases, by reducing the likelihood of mating two carriers of the same disease to produce afflicted offspring. Optimal Selection offers breeders the world’s first dog matchmaking tool that helps estimate the genetic impact of the planned mating pair on the puppies. Mars Veterinary and Wisdom Panel are divisions and products of MARS incorporated, the manufacturers of Pedigree and Royal Canin pet food.
The Wisdom Panel 4.0 Canine DNA Test provides you with information to plan for your dog’s unique nutrition, training and even healthcare. Results provide you with:
Ancestry back to the great-grandparent level
A predicted weight profile
Information about the physical traits your dog may exhibit
Testing for the MDR1 genetic mutation
Testing for Exercise-induced Collapse (EIC)
Wisdom Panel 4.0 covers more than 250 breeds, types and varieties including all those recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) and can be run for mixed-breed, designer, or purebred dogs. The procedure is the same for all three, but you decide at the time of activation how you would like us to run it. For purebred and designer dogs, the test will provide a Principle Component Analysis chart comparing your dog with others of that same breed(s) in our database and for purebred tests specifically, an additional Homozygosity Profile.
The Wisdom Panel 4.0 Canine DNA Test Kit includes:
DNA cheek swabs – all for use on one dog
Drying insert for swabs
Pre-paid shipping label and box
Groupon Buying LivingSocial in Daily Deal Site Consolidation
Is this good or bad? It seems that investors believe it is a bad deal and to make matters worse Groupon reported a third quarter loss of $38 million.
Maybe I am one of those people who are suffering from daily deal fatigue, having gone through periods of buying deals being offered almost daily, now as I suspect many people are thinking twice about deals, especially those that are limited time offers.
Amazon had purchased LivingSocial as part of their entry into the daily deal space, investing $200 million and pegging the value of LivingSocial at over $1 billion.
Groupon must have picked up LivingSocial for between $100 and $200 million, we should see it reported in the filings as they are released.

DeVry University & Department of Education Reach Resolution
I am pleased to share that DeVry University reached a resolution with the U.S. Department of Education (“the Department”) regarding the limitations action initiated in January 2016, which focused on our graduate employment records for the period 1975 to 1980, and their use in advertisements. While we believed in good faith DeVry University had sufficient substantiation at the time these ads ran, we agreed to a settlement to keep our resources and our people focused on our purpose… empowering students to achieve their educational and career goals.
I would like to highlight several key points related to the settlement:
On behalf of DeVry University, I thank you for your continued support of your alma mater. We are honored to help our students unlock their potential, change their lives for the better, and improve the world around us, just as you are doing today.

For over 40 years, Luis J. Rodriguez has been a leader for justice, clean environment, economic equity, and peace at home and in the world. In 1970, he was arrested during the largest peace protest in a community of color at the time, the Chicano Moratorium Against the Vietnam War, and held in murderer’s row of the Hall of Justice jail. Eventually released, Luis was politically transformed from the experience and left a life of crime, drugs and gangs by age 20. To stay out of trouble, Luis worked at Bethlehem Steel, National Lead, St. Regis Paper Company, as well as in construction and a chemical refinery. However, most of U.S. industry was being wiped out by the 1980s.
Luis then became a reporter/photographer for weekly East L.A. newspapers; a daily newspaper in San Bernardino; public radio; and a freelancer. In the early 80s, Luis covered the Contra War in Nicaragua and Honduras as well as indigenous uprisings in Mexico. Luis also worked for the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFL-CIO) in the largest union representation election in U.S. history at the time.
In 1985, he moved to Chicago where he edited and wrote for weekly political newspapers, local publications, and in news radio. He also worked with gang and non-gang youth in Chicago during its most violent period. He has long advocated against the imprisonment of the poor and working class in the U.S. and for restorative justice. In addition, he became active in the thriving Chicago poetry scene, birthplace of Slam Poetry, and founded Tia Chucha Press, now a renowned cross-cultural small press.
Returning to Los Angeles in 2000, Luis and his wife Trini helped create Tia Chucha’s Cultural Center & Bookstore in the northeast San Fernando Valley.
In 2012 Luis became vice-presidential candidate for the U.S. Justice Party with Rocky Anderson for president. In 2014, he ran for California governor, endorsed by the Green Party, Mexican American Political Association, and Justice Party, among others.
Today Luis is Poet Laureate of Los Angeles with 15 books in poetry, children’s literature, fiction, and nonfiction, including the bestselling memoir “Always Running, La Vida Loca, Gang Days in L.A.” His last memoir is “It Calls You Back: An Odyssey Through Love, Addiction, Revolutions, and Healing,” became a finalist for a 2012 National Book Critics Circle Award. His last poetry book is “Borrowed Bones” released in 2016 by Curbstone Books/Northwestern University Press.

Back in 2014, we announced our intention to retire Panoramio in order to invest our efforts into improving photo-sharing experiences directly inside Google Maps. In response to your feedback, we postponed these plans and worked to add features to Maps that better support the level of engagement that you have enjoyed with Panoramio. Today, with photo upload tools in Google Maps and our Local Guides program, we are providing easy options for you to share your photos with an active and growing community. As such, we’ve decided to now close down Panoramio. To make this transition easier, we’ll provide several options to continue sharing photos through other services. If you choose, you can also export all your data and take it somewhere else.
If you link your Panoramio profile with a Google account, all your Panoramio photos will be copied to the Google Album Archive at full resolution after Panoramio goes away. These copied photos will not use any of your Google storage quota. You can visit your Panoramio profile to see what photos you’ve added.
You must link your Panoramio profile with a Google account for your photos to be automatically copied. Your account is not currently linked with a Google account. If you do not link your account, then your photos will be lost after Panoramio is retired in November 2017. In addition, for your Panoramio photos to keep appearing in Google Maps, after creating your Google account, you must also upgrade to a Google+ account.
After November 4, 2016, you’ll continue to have access to your photos in Panoramio for a year, but you will no longer be able to add new photos, likes, or comments. Below, we’ve included resources to help you manage or export your data.
To keep adding photos to Google Maps and engage with a growing community of photographers, join the Local Guides program. You can earn points and unlock rewards for photos submitted with a Google account when they are linked to a point of interest or business. Many of your Panoramio photos may already be counted.
If you prefer to no longer share your photos with Google Maps, you can delete your Panoramio photos or your entire account at any time.
Please see our Help Center article for more information and the various options you have to save, transfer, or delete your content. We’ve appreciated your contributions over the years and hope you will continue to share amazing photos with the world.
