Join four friends from New Hampshire as they renovate no-kill animal rescues in desperate need across America. Project Pawsitive is a docu-soap that chronicles the rewarding, yet demanding, journey of four friends from New Hampshire as they construct awesome renovations for the most overwhelmed and under-equipped rescues around. With the help of community volunteers,cages transform into lush suites fit for a king, concrete floors become radiant-heated lounge areas, sparse outdoor play areas are reborn as green oasis’, and barks are calmed by Mozart piped through installed music systems. From dogs and cats to farm animals and reptiles, no rescue is the same after being transformed by the Project Pawsitive team! Yet, bringing these facilities back from the brink is just one aspect. The team also learns the true meaning of life through the hearts and voices of volunteers sharing their own touching stories about why they have dedicated their lives to giving these animals a second chance.

The Duomo is one of the largest buildings in all of Christendom, exceeded only by St. Peter’s in Rome, St. Paul’s in London, and the Duomo in Milan. A much smaller 7th century church, Santa Reparata once stood on this very spot, but by the 13th century Florence, one of the most prosperous and wealthiest cities in the entire civilized world, was one of the last medieval cities to plan a great cathedral. So in 1294, the Council elected to build a new cathedral and decreed: “It will be so magnificent in size and beauty as to surpass anything built by the Greeks and Romans. Considering that all the acts and works of a people who boast of an illustrious origin should bear the character of grandeur and wisdom, we order Arnolfo, director of the works of our commune, to make the model, or a design of the building, which shall replace the church of Santa Reparata. It shall display such magnificence that no industry, nor human power, shall surpass it”. This is track one of a multi-track tour, to download the complete tour, visit www.tourcaster.com.

A Super Smiley Adventure with Megan Blake - Pets & Animals on Pet Life Radio (PetLifeRadio.com)Join Now to Follow
Welcome to A Super Smiley Adventure! In living with dogs, cats and horses, one thing I’ve learned is that if we are open to it, animals will lead us on amazing adventures. Whether it’s Super Smiley, my giant mutt, hiking and camping across New England and inspiring an entire Flash Mob Dance Campaign; Tout Suite The Travel Kitty traveling with me to Pet Friendly Resorts; or Starfire, our beautiful Arabian, leading me on inner journeys of self-discovery; my life with animals is always an adventure. Add the “happy chemicals” pets bring and a smiling dog, and voila, our show appeared. On our podcast, we explore travel destinations, inner journeys and any path of pet adventure we can find. Pets lower our blood pressure, lower our heart rates and increase our happy chemicals. We are their leaders, but if we can open to see where they lead us, we will begin our own Super Smiley Adventures. :)

At the heart of Ancient Rome you can explore the Forum, or the Forum Magnum as ancient Romans called it. With Palatine Hill in the background and the Colosseum and Arch of Titus in the distance, this was designed to be the center of political, economic and social life in the city. These ancient ruins boast statues of the late Caesar and Zeus as well as other monuments, that are still clearly visible. Visit the "belly-button of Rome", Umbilicus Urbis Mundus, and gain a better understanding of the Roman Republic, whose world was so closely intertwined with the Gods.

We initiate the walk in Plaza de Armas, opposite to the metropolitan cathedral, the place where the city of Santiago was founded. You will quickly learn part of the history of the city, the kind of history that the monuments and ancient buildings tell us as well as all the curiosities hidden in galleries and arcades, typical spaces of downtown Santiago. This is an entertaining way of learning about the Chile of yesterday and that of today, about the local customs and about those who walk along with us.

The Baptistery is a building that is beautiful to look at, both inside and out, a masterpiece of architecture whose beginnings date back to antiquity. Like many holy places in Europe, there is no way of telling exactly how long the Baptistery has been revered. The origins of the temple, dedicated to St. John the Baptist, are uncertain but according to local lore there has been some sort of shrine on this spot since ancient Roman times, a temple dedicated to Mars, the Roman god of war.
