Dogs poop in alignment with Earth’s magnetic field, study finds | PBS NewsHour
Dogs use the Earth's magnetic field when they're relieving themselves. Not only that, but canines choose to do so in a north-south axis, a new study published in the journal Frontiers in Zoology says. The study suggests that dogs are sensitive to small variations in Earth's magnetic field. After examining 70 dogs -- made up of 37 breeds -- over two years, 1,893 defecations and 5,582 urinations, researchers found that under "calm magnetic field conditions,"

Machiavelli an active participant in Florentine diplomatic and martial

Fontenoy, while both Jomini and Clausewitz kept their own formative
experiences fighting in the Napoleonic Wars firmly in mind as they composed
their respective theoretical works. But what mot...
