Quite honestly, I had lost all faith in the Tennessee Republican Party until Burchett cast his vote in support of the PAST Act. He is a true American hero, with real guts…”

— Marty Irby, executive director at Animal Wellness Action

KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE, USA, August 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed the Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act, H.R. 693, by a vote of 333 to 96. U.S. Rep. Tim Burchett (R-Knoxville) joined Reps. Steve Cohen, and Jim Cooper in a courageous vote for the measure that’s long been opposed by members of the pro-soring coalition such as Reps. Scott DesJarlais, and Senators Marsha Blackburn and Lamar Alexander.

The PAST Act seeks to strengthen the Horse Protection Act and end the torturous, painful practice of soring Tennessee Walking, Racking, and Spotted Saddle Horses. Soring, the intentional infliction of pain to horses' front limbs by applying caustic chemicals such as mustard oil or kerosene or inserting sharp objects into the horses' hooves to create an exaggerated gait known as the "Big Lick,” has plagued the equine world for six decades. The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration in Shelbyville, Tennessee is set crown a “Big Lick” World Grand Champion on Saturday night.

“We applaud Rep. Tim Burchett for his courageous vote to end the abusive practice of soring that runs rampant in Tennessee,” said Marty Irby, executive director at Animal Wellness Action, lifelong Republican, and a past president of the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ & Exhibitors’ Association. “Quite honestly, I had lost all faith in the Tennessee Republican Party until Burchett cast his vote in support of the PAST Act. He is a true American hero, with real guts, and both the Tennessee Walking Horse and the great State of Tennessee are fortunate to have Burchett working to end the abuse that has marred the breed and the state for six decades.”

“Timing is ripe, and the majority of Americans want to see Congress work to protect these iconic American horses upon whose backs our country was built upon,” said Animal Wellness Advocate Priscilla Presley. “U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should swiftly schedule a vote on the PAST Act, and execute the will of the American people, and I call on him to do so!”

“The bottom line is you are either for animal cruelty, or you are against it,” said Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL), lead Republican sponsor of the House PAST Act.

“I support the humane treatment of all animals and remain committed to ending the cruel practice of soring,” said Senator Mike Crapo (R-ID), lead Republican sponsor of the PAST Act in the U.S. Senate. “I appreciate the House’s movement on the PAST Act. I will continue to work with my colleagues in the Senate to see that the legislation moves in the Senate and that current animal welfare laws are enforced.”

The PAST Act would ban the use of painful large stacked shoes and ankle chains and would also eliminate the existing system of self-regulation by the industry and toughen penalties for violators of the Horse Protection Act. It’s supported by Animal Wellness Action, the American Horse Council, American Veterinary Medical Association, American Association of Equine Practitioners, United States Equestrian Federation, National Sheriff’s Association, the American Quarter Horse Association, American Saddlebred Association and Tennessee Veterinary Medical Association.

Soring

Example of soring that enforcement of the Horse Protection Act would prevent

“The amount of suffering endured by these gentle creatures for nothing more than a prize is barbaric, inhumane, and the time has come to end it once and for all.” ”

— Laurie Hood, Animal Wellness Action Florida State Director

TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA, USA, August 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed the Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act, H.R. 693, by a vote of 333 to 96. The measure, led by U.S. Reps. Ted Yoho (R-FL), and Kurt Schrader (D-OR), co-chairs of the Congressional Veterinary Medicine Caucus received tremendous bipartisan support. Reps. Al Lawson, Michael Waltz, Stephanie Murphy, Bill Posey, Darren Soto, Val Demings, Gus Bilirakis, Charlie Crist, Kathy Castor, Vern Buchanan, Brian Mast, Francis Rooney, Alcee Hastings, Lois Frankel, Ted Deutch, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Frederica Wilson, Mario Diaz-Balart, and Debbie Mucarsel-Powell all voted in support of the measure. Rep. Matt Gaetz abstained from the vote.

Reps. Neal Dunn, John Rutherford, Dan Webster, Ross Spano, and Greg Steube voted against the measure, siding with animal abusers.

The PAST Act seeks to strengthen the Horse Protection Act and end the torturous, painful practice of soring Tennessee Walking, Racking, and Spotted Saddle Horses. Soring, the intentional infliction of pain to horses' front limbs by applying caustic chemicals such as mustard oil or kerosene or inserting sharp objects into the horses' hooves to create an exaggerated gait known as the "Big Lick,” has plagued the equine world for six decades. The “Big Lick” animal cruelty will be exhibited for the next 2 days at the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration in Shelbyville, Tennessee.

Neither U.S. Senators Marco Rubio nor Rick Scott are cosponsors of the Senate companion bill, S. 1007, led by the senior U.S. Senator from Idaho, Republican Mike Crapo, that mirrors the House passed legislation and currently has 43 cosponsors in the Upper Chamber, but Rubio was a cosponsor of the bill in the 113th Congress.

“This abhorrent horse abuse has no place in our country's narrative, and I'm glad the U.S. Representatives in my home state voted overwhelmingly to put an end to it,” said Holly Gann director of federal affairs at Animal Wellness Action.

“The amount of suffering endured by these gentle creatures for nothing more than a prize is barbaric, inhumane, and the time has come to end it once and for all,” said Laurie Hood, Florida state director at Animal Wellness Action.

“As a veterinarian and lover of animals, it is time we end the inhumane practice of horse soring,” said Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL-03). “I want to thank House Leadership for bringing the Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act up for a vote today and my colleague and fellow veterinarian Rep. Kurt Schrader for championing this bill with me over the years. The walking horse industry had plenty of time to self-police and change their ways, but they decided to press on. They have failed to take advantage of this opportunity and now it is time for horse soring to end.”

“Animals should be treated in a humane manner and I’m pleased to support this important legislation that will better protect horses from abuse,” said Rep. Bill Posey (R-FL-08).

“The practice of horse “soring” is nothing less than animal torture,” said Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-FL-16), co-chair of the Congressional Animal Protection Caucus. “We need to end this inhumane practice by making clear that anyone who abuses horses in this manner will be prosecuted.”

“Horse soring is a cruel practice that should be done away with,” said Rep. Charlie Crist (D-FL-13). “I’m proud to co-sponsor the PAST Act, bipartisan legislation that protects these majestic animals from such an inhumane, outdated procedure.”

“Horses are beautiful animals which have sadly become victims of this cruelty, which inflicts pain on their feet to win prizes,” said Rep. Michael Waltz (R-FL-06). “It needs to stop, and Congress needs to act. I’m glad to support Rep. Yoho and his legislation to end horse this horrifying practice once and for all.”

The PAST Act would ban the use of painful large stacked shoes and ankle chains and would also eliminate the existing system of self-regulation by the industry and toughen penalties for violators of the Horse Protection Act. It’s supported Animal Wellness Action, the American Horse Council, American Veterinary Medical Association, American Association of Equine Practitioners, United States Equestrian Federation, National Sheriff’s Association, and Florida Veterinary Medical Association.

Asian arts again proved to be the wild card of the antiques business. That censer was truly an exceptional example, plus the fact that it’s going back to China says something in itself.”

— Kevin Bruneau

CRANSTON, RI, UNITED STATES, August 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — An 18th century Chinese Qing dynasty bronze tripod censer, originally used to burn incense to honor ancestors, purify the air or cure ailments, soared to $30,000 at a Fine Art & Antiques Auction held August 17th by Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers, online and in the Cranston gallery at 63 Fourth Avenue. The sale featured 380 lots, pulled from prominent estates.

The front and underside of the 5-inch-tall censer were both impressed with the Xuande character seal mark. In overall good condition, with original untouched patina, the lot sailed past its pre-sale estimate of $3,000-$5,000 to be the sale’s top achiever. The event featured French furniture and accessories, lovely paintings, bronzes, jewelry, clocks, Chinese arts, modern arts and more.

“Overall it was a great day, with active participation from both the house and online,” said Bruneau & Co. president Kevin Bruneau. “Asian arts again proved to be the wild card of the antiques business, as you never know what something will sell for. That censer was truly an exceptional example, plus the fact that it’s going back to China says something in itself.”

Travis Landry, a Bruneau & Co. specialist and auctioneer, added, “Every auction always ends up being an exciting one for me, especially when you get to hammer down a pricey bronze censer. Outside the censer, it was nice to see Heinrich Kley’s market remaining hot and viable as results stayed consistent with what we achieved in 2017. Bidders competed hard for the Kley painting.”

He was referring to the watercolor and ink on paper by Heinrich Kley (German, 1863-1945), titled Der Patient (“The Patient”), a mythical illustrative work depicting an ill dragon resting on a pillow stuffed with gold as a wizard inspects his wound. A bare-breasted woman stands nearby with a worried look. The 8 ½ inch by 13 inch (sight) painting found a new owner for $4,375.

Online bidding was provided by LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com, Bidsquare.com and bidLIVE.Bruneauandco.com. Bidders also participated via the mobile app “Bruneau & Co.” on iTunes and GooglePlay. Telephone and absentee bids were also be accepted. Following are additional highlights from the auction. All prices quoted here include the buyer’s premium.

A finely cast sculpture of the Greek poet Sapho by Emmanuel Villanis (French, 1858-1914), on a base and with an overall height of 28 ½ inches, changed hands for $2,250. The sculpture, signed (“E. Villanis”) and titled (“Sapho”) on the base, depicted Sapho standing with her lyre in flowing diaphanous drapery. Sapho, through her poems, became a symbol of female homosexuality.

A pair of 19th century French Sevres urns, 20 ½ inches tall, Greco-Roman in form with organic acanthus leaf ormolu mounts, gaveled for $3,438. The porcelain urns, marked Sevres on the bottom, were decorated with opposing romantic neoclassical panels of voluptuous nude women with diaphanous drapery among cherubs. Scenic landscape panels showed classical architecture.

A 68-piece Carrs Sheffield (England) sterling silver flatware set in the Kings pattern finished at $3,438. The service for 12, weighing a total 130 troy silver ounces, came in a wooden box lined with velvet measuring 12 ½ inches by 19 inches. A plaque on the inside lid was engraved with “Carrs Sheffield England Silverware” and the cutlery handles were stamped “Sterling England”.

A pastel on paper figurative abstract painting by Louis Schanker (N.Y./Conn., 1903-1981), of humanoid figures dancing over a tricolored background, fetched $938. Schanker utilized a blend of abstraction and cubism to create a vibrant imagery of people, animals and still life. The untitled 8 inch by 16 inch (sight) work was signed “Schanker” upper right and dated (“1940”).

A Chinese Qing Dynasty reverse glass panel painting, telling a story and broken down into four scenes, realized $938. The last panel depicted His Wang Mu and her counterpart Mu Gong riding on a cloud of mist in front of spectators. Also, a 14kt gold braided rope twist bracelet slipped on a new wrist for $3,438. The 8-inch-long bracelet, by an unknown maker, weighed 34.7 grams.

Dennis Begos Loves Giving Back To Those In Need

Dennis Begos

Dennis Begos

BOSTON, MA, UNITED STATES, August 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dennis Begos enjoys giving back to the community. As a doctor, Dennis Begos MD is in a unique position to use his years of education and special set skills to give back to those who need it most. As he explains, “Many doctors and dentists commit their time to programs like Doctors Without Borders, iHelp Globally, and Vida Volunteer and I loudly applaud them. Helping people no matter where you are is something we should all take part in. However, right here in the United States of America, there are many people struggling to make ends meet as well.”

That is why Dennis Begos chose the Lazarus House, to help people within his own community. The Lazarus House opened in 1983 and since their inauguration, they have been helping many people break the vicious cycle of poverty in the Merrimack Valley. By helping those in need with food, clothing, shelter, and jobs, the Lazarus House is seeking to change the community they hold so dear.

As Dennis Begos says, “There are a multitude of ways for everyday people to make a difference. You don’t have to be a doctor to donate clothes, toys, even food to causes that make tremendous amounts of difference within people’s lives.” The Lazarus House runs on less than 1% from government funding. They stand as a great example of how people can help people without large government budgets or giant philanthropic endeavors.

Dennis Begos MD really appreciates how the Lazarus House provides the less advantaged with skills and resources to help them become self-reliant. Too often, citizens in need are given money with the expectation that it will solve their problems. Unfortunately, money doesn’t always bring happiness and it doesn’t magically turn people’s lives around. Providing people with education, support, and simple understanding often can go further than simply a check.

“I love working with The Lazarus House, from their social services to their various charity events, I feel they have done a fantastic job of finding creative ways to help people who genuinely need it,” asserts Dennis Begos MD. Since the Lazarus House essentially operates without government aid, charity events, gala auctions, third-party events are crucial to their continual operation.

Whether it’s with the Lazarus House or another charity near you, please take some time, do some research, and find a charity near you. You’ll be amazed at how awesome giving back feels. “I’ve been working with the Lazarus House for years and every single time I feel empowered by being able to help people. “I, Dennis Begos MD, implore you to do the same!”

About Lori’s Laboratory

Lori Treleaven started designing jewelry and unique jars and decor after noticing a gap in mainstream offerings for home and self, and a lack of representation for the needs of the pagan and alternative community. After years of experimentation testing methods of sculpting, painting, and applications of metal patinas, she released her pieces to the public and started gaining notoriety amongst the pagan industry. Her designs have since traveled to customers worldwide.

Animal Wellness Action Applauds U.S. Rep. Russ Fulcher for Working to Protect Iconic American Horses

Soring

Example of soring that enforcement of the Horse Protection Act would prevent

We applaud Rep. Fulcher for his terrific work to help end the practice of soring that has marred the show horse world for six decades.”

— Marty Irby, executive director at Animal Wellness Action

BOISE, IDAHO, USA, August 28, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed the Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act, H.R. 693, by a vote of 333 to 96. U.S. Rep. Russ Fulcher was a cosponsor and voted in support of the measure. In an unexplained twist, Rep. Mike Simpson, a cosponsor of the PAST Act in the 113th, 115th, and 116th Congresses voted against the measure.

The PAST Act seeks to strengthen the Horse Protection Act and end the torturous, painful practice of soring Tennessee Walking, Racking, and Spotted Saddle Horses. Soring, the intentional infliction of pain to horses' front limbs by applying caustic chemicals such as mustard oil or kerosene or inserting sharp objects into the horses' hooves to create an exaggerated gait known as the "Big Lick,” has plagued the equine world for six decades. The “Big Lick” animal cruelty will be exhibited for the next 4 days at the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration in Shelbyville, Tennessee.

U.S. Senator Mike Crapo is the lead sponsor of the Senate companion bill that mirrors the House passed legislation and currently has 43 cosponsors in the Upper Chamber. U.S. Senator James Risch, the junior Senator from Idaho, has yet to cosponsor the bill.

“We applaud Rep. Fulcher for his terrific work to help end the practice of soring that has marred the show horse world for six decades,” said Marty Irby, executive director at Animal Wellness Action and a past president of the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ & Exhibitors’ Association. “We’re grateful for Senator Crapo’s tremendous leadership on this issue and hope that the PAST Act’s overwhelming support sends a strong signal to the U.S. Senate that it should saddle up and swiftly move this legislation.”

“I support the humane treatment of all animals and remain committed to ending the cruel practice of soring,” said Senator Mike Crapo (R-ID. “I appreciate the House’s movement on the PAST Act. I will continue to work with my colleagues in the Senate to see that the legislation moves in the Senate and that current animal welfare laws are enforced.”

“The bottom line is you are either for animal cruelty, or you are against it,” said Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL), lead Republican sponsor of the House PAST Act.

The PAST Act would ban the use of painful large stacked shoes and ankle chains and would also eliminate the existing system of self-regulation by the industry and toughen penalties for violators of the Horse Protection Act. It’s supported by the American Saddlebred Association, American Quarter Horse Association, Animal Wellness Action, the American Horse Council, American Veterinary Medical Association, American Association of Equine Practitioners, United States Equestrian Federation, National Sheriff’s Association, and Idaho Veterinary Medical Association.

The PAST Act has been blocked for years by a handful of well-placed lawmakers, but a new House rule triggering consideration of any measure that attracts 290 or more cosponsors brought the issue to the floor. PAST attracted 308 cosponsors and was led by Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-OR) and Ted Yoho (R-FL), cochairs of the Congressional Veterinary Medicine Caucus, along with Reps. Steve Cohen (D-TN), Ron Estes (R-KS), Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), and Chris Collins (R-NY). The Senate companion has garnered 43 cosponsors.

Animal Wellness Action (Action) is a Washington, D.C.-based 501(c)(4) organization with a mission of helping animals by promoting legal standards forbidding cruelty. We champion causes that alleviate the suffering of companion animals, farm animals, and wildlife. We advocate for policies to stop dogfighting and cockfighting and other forms of malicious cruelty and to confront factory farming and other systemic forms of animal exploitation. To prevent cruelty, we promote enacting good public policies and we work to enforce those policies. To enact good laws, we must elect good lawmakers, and that’s why we remind voters which candidates care about our issues and which ones don’t. We believe helping animals helps us all.
