As you may or may not know, the armed forces have frequently “enlisted” dogs into intelligence and combat service, using them to find bombs and drugs — tasks that often endanger their lives. As is always the case, the authorities claimed that it was the best and most scientific way to seek these items, and as usual, they were wrong.
That’s because Yushan Yan, a UC — Riverside professor, and his team, have created electronic bomb-sniffing technology, which is able to identify tiny amounts of explosives, hazardous materials, and even landmines. These “electronic noses” can easily be used at airports and in military operations.
This is just the latest in a series of technological advances that have helped take animals out of harmful situations (see “use of animals in crash tests” that PETA helped end at General Motors).
Unemployment is a big issue these days, but somehow I don’t think these dogs will mind losing their fatal “jobs” once and for all.
I grew up in the United States.My mom is white.My father is Latino. I love to save animals,even spiders.So don't kill my spiders..I love dogs,pigs,all creatures that the world has made for you and me-to protect and love/and NOT to kill. I believe in love & adventure. I believe in you have to live life to learn,LOVE life LOVE life..
Well, I love Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, CSI, Criminal Minds, Doctor Who and comic books (I mean, my profile pic IS Damian Wayne and Bat-Cow...). I'm kind of spazzy and I tend to ramble... I'm also an obsessive perfectionist...heh heh...a science/tech nerd and a vegetarian.
