Rise of the Bulldog! The Loveable Breed Hits Highest Spot Ever, While Labrador Retriever Remains Number One

The Labrador Retriever has done it again. The American Kennel Club (AKC) announced on Feb. 26 that the intelligent, family friendly breed holds tight to the number one spot on the most popular list for the 24th consecutive year, continuing the longest reign as the nation’s top dog in AKC history.

While the Lab holds strong, the Bulldog has quietly crept up the list, landing this year at number four for the first time – its highest ranking in breed history. This gentle breed makes an excellent family companion with a natural tendency to form strong bonds with kids, an easy-to-care-for coat and minimal exercise needs.  See the full release to see what other breeds made the list.

Mata Conjoined Twins Successfully Separated in Complex, First-of-its-Kind Surgery at Texas Children’s Hospital

Knatalye Hope and Adeline Faith Mata, conjoined twin girls born at Texas Children’s Pavilion for Women in April 2014, underwent a successful separation surgery on Feb. 17 at Texas Children’s Hospital.

A team of more than 26 clinicians including 12 surgeons, six anesthesiologists and eight surgical nurses, among others, worked together to separate the girls who shared a chest wall, lungs, pericardial sac (the lining of the heart), diaphragm, liver, intestines, colon and pelvis.

During the complex surgery, the team worked for approximately 23 hours on Knatalye and 26 hours on Adeline with the official separation occurring approximately 18 hours into the surgery.

Among the surgical subspecialties involved were pediatric surgery, plastic surgery, cardiovascular surgery, urology, liver transplant surgery, orthopedic surgery and pediatric gynecology. See the full release to learn more about the operation.

Americans Aren’t as OK with Divorce as they Think They Are

While census figures can provide insights on the divorce rate in the U.S., its fluctuations don’t tell us how Americans actually feel about divorce. When asked to gauge the opinions of their fellow Americans, nine in ten U.S. adults (88%) estimate that Americans believe divorce is acceptable.

However, when asked about their own personal feelings on the matter, only 58% of Americans say they themselves believe it’s acceptable. This disconnect is even more apparent when considering that 55% said Americans in general believe divorce is “very” acceptable, but less than half that (27%) actually feel that way.

In addition, as some might expect, those who describe themselves as religious are less likely to find divorce acceptable than those who do not see themselves this way (52% vs. 68%, respectively). See the full release to learn more about the findings.
