"Once the Syrians have the guts to down one of its planes it's as if a disaster has happened," Zarif said.

This dog's heartwarming rescue from a New York subway tunnel will bring you happy tears

This dog's heartwarming rescue from a New York subway tunnel will bring you happy tearsOne lucky pup found compassiom in a most unlikely place: The New York City subway. Dakota, aka Loppy the dog, was playing with her dog walker at a park in Brooklyn on Friday when the pooch managed to escape. Frightened, the poor pup ran to a place that she knew — the Jay St. station — and ended up inside the dangerous subway tunnel. SEE ALSO: How this startup is trying to bring dog toys into the 21st century "It’s a familiar place for her, we commute together every day. She entered, ran across the platform, and at some point either fell or jumped in," Dakota's owner, Caroline Francis, posted to her Facebook.  The NYC subway runs off of an electrified third rail, so once notified, workers shut the trains down and cut power to the subway in order to save the dog.  A/C/F train riders, apologies for the delay- Dakota escaped from the dog park and- you guessed it- onto the tracks. Thank @MTA NYCT for the assist on the rescue, job well done by all, service back up & dog on the way to the vet for a minor injury- Appreciate everyone’s patience! pic.twitter.com/gSA5ynPgGX — NYPD Transit (@NYPDTransit) February 16, 2018 After over an hour of searching, Francis says that things were looking "devastatingly bleak." She begged the MTA to let her onto the tracks to help search the miles of subway tunnels. "Then a miracle happened," Francis wrote. "An MTA officer took it upon herself to explore the tracks several stations away. And, against all odds, she found Loppy." Francis says the pup was bloodied, cold, dirty, and terrified, but miraculously OK.  "The joy I felt when the police officer showed me a photo and said 'is this her?' was all-consuming," she wrote. "Being reunited with this little creature is something more powerful than I can explain." The dog suffered some lung damage, lost a few teeth, and fractured her jaw, according to the New York Daily News. She is currently being treated at Pearl Blue hospital, but is expected to make a speedy recovery. MTA Supervisor Sanya Hill, who found the pup about a mile away from where she entered the subway, says she spotted Loppy curled up at the back of the subway platform. “I had my flashlight out and I was looking and then I saw the dog,” Hill told the News. “I didn't want her to bite me, I didn't want to scare her any more than she was. She was already shaking and already curled up all the way to the back of the platform.” Francis ended her Facebook post with a heartwarming message to all of the New Yorkers who likely complained for hours about how their commute was interrupted. "New York can feel like a cold, hard city," Francis wrote. "But this city—the NYPD and MTA in particular—rallied around me at my darkest hour. They saved my best friend. That warmth and support moves me in a way I can’t explain. To all the commuters who got stuck for 60+ minutes, know that your sacrifice saved her life—thank you. I've been so touched by all who have reached out with kind words." WATCH: Your cat can achieve ultimate chill with this portable hammock

Netanyahu brandishes remnants of Iranian drone shot down in Israel as he warns against 'dangerous Iran tiger'

Netanyahu brandishes remnants of Iranian drone shot down in Israel as he warns against 'dangerous Iran tiger'Benjamin Netanyahu opened a war of words with the Iranian foreign minister as he used a speech to brandish a piece of Iranian drone destroyed in Israeli airspace and warn that Iran was "greatest threat to our world". Holding what appeared to be a panel of the Iranian drone shot down last week amid rising tensions between the two powers, the Israeli leader asked Javad Zarif, the Iranian foreign minister: "Do you recognize it? You should, it’s yours. Don’t test us." Speaking at a Munich security conference on Sunday, Mr Netanyahu appeared to threaten Iran with further retaliation, adding: "We will act if necessary not just against Iran's proxies, but against Iran itself." Mr Zarif, also speaking at the conference, later dismissed Mr Netanyahu's presentation as "a cartoonish circus, which does not even deserve a response". He accused the Israeli prime minister of attempting to revive anti-Iranian "hysteria". Sunday's gesture comes scarcely a week after military escalation in Syria raised questions about Israel’s mantle of military supremacy in the Middle East. Protesters hold up a heart-shaped sign at a demonstration during the Munich Security Conference in Munich Credit: MICHAELA REHLE/ REUTERS Last Saturday Israel claimed an Iranian drone breached its airspace. An Israeli Apache attack helicopter destroyed it, and in a retaliatory move, Israeli fighter jets were scrambled to Syria, where they attacked a series of high-value targets. It was the largest battery of Israeli strikes on Syria since 1982, during Lebanon’s civil war. It also carried a heavy price: one of the Israeli jets was hit by Syrian fire, downing the plane. The two pilots ejected over Israel and one is seriously injured. For Mr Netanyahu, who is fighting corruption charges at home and may welcome the opportunity to flex some foreign policy muscle, the Munich symposium provided an opportunity to sound the alarm on rising Iranian power and gather support to defeat it. In Syria, the Iran-backed Lebanese militia Hezbollah has played a pivotal role in supporting the regime of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, all but ensuring his victory. Profile | Benjamin Netanyahu And in both Syria and Iraq, Iranian troops and Iran-backed militias have played a critical role in battling the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil). Mr Netanyahu warned that Tehran sought to exploit the gap left by Isil for its own advance. He said Iran was “trying to establish this continuous empire surrounding the Middle East from the south in Yemen but also trying to create a land bridge from Iran to Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Gaza". "This is a very dangerous development for our region,” said Mr Netanyahu. But Iran’s leadership scoffed at his claims. Mr Zarif, who also addressed the conference, called Mr Netanyahu's presentation "a cartoonish circus". Iran nuclear talks Mr Zarif denied that Tehran was seeking "hegemony" in the Middle East. He also accused Israel’s top ally the US of using the conference to "revive hysteria" against Iran. US President Donald Trump has frequently called the nuclear deal a bad one. That view is shared by Mr Netanyahu, who said the 2015 Iran nuclear deal must be scrapped or rewritten in order to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapon capabilities. But signatories France, Britain, Germany, Russia and China say the deal cannot be revisited and Iran is holding up its end by allowing inspections. Former US secretary of state John Kerry also weighed in, saying it was wrong to assume Iran would obtain a nuclear weapon as soon as the 15-year scope of the deal ends. "If your house is on fire, are you going to refuse to put it out because you are concerned it will light on fire again in 15 years? Or are you going to put it out and use the intervening time to prevent it ever catching fire again?" Kerry said. In his 2012 United Nations General Assembly address, Mr Netanyahu held aloft a cartoonish drawing of a bomb to illustrate his concerns about Iran’s progress towards making a nuclear weapon.

Britain's May wins backing for EU security pact, timing unclear

Britain's May wins backing for EU security pact, timing unclearBy Thomas Escritt and Robin Emmott MUNICH (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May made her case on Saturday for a new security treaty with the EU from next year, winning support from EU and U.S. officials who agreed the issue was too important to risk getting subsumed in broader Brexit negotiations. In a speech to Western leaders and officials in Munich, May promised that London would continue to lead military missions and share intelligence if Brussels agreed to a pact "effective from 2019", the year Britain is due to leave the bloc. May's government is using a series of speeches to set out its vision for Britain outside the European Union.

Government urges councils to waive road closure charges for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding

Government urges councils to waive road closure charges for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's weddingThe government is urging councils to waive their charges for road closures on May 19, in the hopes of encouraging Britain to celebrate the Royal wedding with thousands of street parties. The wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will fall on a Saturday, the same day as the FA Cup final, with leaders hoping the mood of celebration will buoy the public. They today launch a “handy guide” to throwing a street party, reminding keen organisers to get in touch with local councils in good time to plan road closures and insurance. Information from the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government States: “Many councils, from Bromley to Salford, have already announced that they are waiving charges for street party road closures, making it easier and cheaper than ever to hold celebrations. “The government is urging other councils to follow suit.” The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding in 2011 saw bank holiday street parties held throughout Britain, including on Downing Street. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visit Cardiff, in pictures There will be no extra day off for the marriage of Prince Harry, fifth-in-Line to the throne, and Meghan Markle, who wed at Windsor Castle on May 19 before taking a carriage ride around the town to greet those who have turned up to see them. Chris Gittins, who runs streetparty.org.uk, said the celebrations will show a “fantastic part of British culture", adding: “It's a rare excuse to meet neighbours really, a traditional excuse to meet neighbours in a relaxed atmosphere.” Guy Oliver, from the Old Barn Inn in Glooston, said they would be throwing a street party to encourage people to “come together in a community”. "It'll be a few union jacks and we're going to serve food to everyone's taste,” he said. Sandra Hastings, founder of Newcastle-based charity Silverline Memories which helps those with dementia, said she is planning a “good old-fashioned party with bunting, and red white and blue balloons, and trestle tables with tonnes of homemade food". "At our charity we provide people with the opportunity to do things they wouldn't have done otherwise, and take any excuse for a knees up,” she said. Jake Berry MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State said: “We’ve made it easier than ever for local residents from all backgrounds to come together to celebrate the royalwedding and we hope councils will get into the spirit by helping people wishing to organise street parties. “With the FA Cup final taking place on the same day, there's never been a better reason to hold a street party and our updated guidance makes clear the steps residents need to take to ensure an enjoyable and safe day is had by all.”

Needed in Syria: Disengagement

Needed in Syria: DisengagementOne is the outbreak of another war between Israel and its neighbors.  A reminder of this danger has come from events that began when Israel said it shot down an Iranian drone that had entered its airspace.  Israeli F-16s then attacked a command center in Syria, during which Syrian air defenses downed one of the Israeli warplanes (a rare event for Israel).  Israel subsequently launched a much more widespread set of aerial attacks within Syria.  The Israelis have conducted scores of attacks in Syria over the last five years, but this most recent assault may have been the largest Israeli attack there since the 1980s. A new war involving Israel would surely also involve Lebanese Hezbollah.  There is no indication that Hezbollah seeks such a war.  The group has incurred significant costs by participating in fighting within Syria and has many wounds to lick.  Its leaders still have regrets about the brinksmanship that last got Hezbollah entangled in a war with Israel.  Even though it could get in some hits with cross-border rocket fire, the group’s leaders know that in a new clash it would get badly bloodied by its militarily more capable foe.

Three suicide bombers kill 18 in Nigeria's Maiduguri -policeBy Lanre Ola and Ahmed Kingimi MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (Reuters) - Three suicide bombers killed 18 people in the northeast Nigerian city of Maiduguri, capital of the state worst hit by the Boko Haram insurgency, its police commissioner said on Saturday. Nobody has claimed responsibility for the attack but the use of suicide bombers in crowded areas is a hallmark of the Islamist militant group, which has killed more that 20,000 people since 2009 and forced over two million to flee their homes. Damian Chukwu, police commissioner for Borno state, said the attack took place at a fish market around 20 kilometres (12 miles) from the centre of Maiduguri at about 8:00 p.m. (1900 GMT) on Friday.

LPT: As a manager, give praise in public and give discipline in private.

Author: /u/yardsandyards

In an old job in "Corporate America" I had a manager who would always share with employees encouragement and kind words of praise within earshot of other employees, and would offer words of critisicm and suggestions for improvement in private (in his office or a conference room). This set up an environment of positive reinforcement and gave employees respect and honesty they needed to perform at a higher level.

Edit: Good call by /u/slumdawg11b for pointing out that this applies to any leadership role, and /u/airforcefalco that it applies to parenting.

Edit 2: Lots of folks rightfully expressing that this is a catch-all method and knowing your employees' personally to effectively give praise and discipline is the best way to go.
