Dog faeces is not only capable of spreading diseases Neosporosis and Sarcocystosis to innocent farm animals, but also contains E. coli and Salmonella, together with a possible array of common life-threatening parasites including hookworm, tapeworm, and roundworm.
During tonight's seven-way TV debate, you're going to hear a lot of strange things from some of the smaller parties. Big unaffordable plans, and wild utopian visions. However, nothing will be more at odds with reality than Leanne Wood's claim to speak for Wales.
In the run up to the Rugby World Cup, I'd like to know what's in store for the future of rugby union. Is it going to be dominated by strong defences? Is the path of a game going to be dictated by the number of penalties awarded, by packs of rolling malls and choke tackles? Personally, I hope not, because it will destroy the very heart and soul of the game, a sport which will become used and worn out and shelved into the annals of history like boxing.
I want to challenge that phrase 'A childless couple', It assumes Ramin and I, and others like us, are missing out. We live in a time when the quest for possessions, status and fame is well and truly up there with the quest for enlightenment.
Conservatives have always backed those who want to get on in life, roll up their sleeves and do a hard day's work. We always have and we always will. That's why I want Wales to lead the charge on being the first living wage country of the UK and I'm proud that it's Welsh Conservatives who are the ones doing it.
Between January and September 2014, town centres across the UK saw 964 shop closures - two-and-a-half times the amount recorded for the whole of 2013, according to a study by accountancy firm PwC. This has led many to question what it is that consumers actually want, and how financial institutions such as ours can tailor their offering accordingly.
The crux of my problem with the current debate is that this just isn't one of those decisions we make for our families alone. This isn't one of the times where you get to weigh it up and make the call. This isn't about your individual freedom, its about basic community responsibility.
The debut feature film from Jimmy Hay and James Gillingham shows urban city problems and family fractures blend into the rural, seaside lifestyle in way unseen before...
Preparation was key and like any teenage girl, I had been practising my necking skills for a good year in the lead up to this Valentines disco. I would regularly snog the bathroom mirror or clench my hand into a fist and pretend it was Jon Bon Jovi (or Gary Barlow).
Now is the time for England to march on from their developmental stage and deliver, these were the overarching messages from the men in charge at the first squad announcement of the year just 14 days ago. In last year's RBS 6 Nations England matured greatly and to be true contenders come September that is what they will need to do again this year.
Why isn't there a unit in Wales? It's a country in itself, and after being involved in the report in October issues by the MMHA, this shows clearly that prevention and treatment would result in saving the country money in the long term due to the effects of this illness.
The club started the season with a wealth of options in every area. Some had to go. But a few of the players Slade has let go for next to nothing (or literaly nothing) were far too good for that kind of treatment...
It's not just the big chains and shopping centre that is easy. Through out the city centre there are arcades of boutique style shops and restaurants, and pretty much all of these are equally accessible. Most of these are historic in nature and yet there has been great effort taken to ensure as many of them are as accessible as possible.
It goes without saying that Christmas is a hugely critical time of the year for Welsh high streets and the thousands of small businesses located within them. This is when all can expect to make over half their annual profits - essential to see them through quieter retail months...
With the privilege of starting again, the one thing that I'd change would be to dream wild change a few years earlier, and laugh more loudly at the folk who say it can't be done. They were never going to try in the first place.
When it comes to planning the big day, there's nothing so hard as choosing the wedding venue. get it right and the day runs smoothly - get it wrong and you can land yourself with an expensive bill for mediocre service.
