Review-Menial Skilled Labor in Science Fiction

Menial: Skilled Labor in Science Fiction, Kelly Jennings and Shay Darrach (ed.), 2013, ISBN 9780615705613

Most science fiction stories are bout tall, square-jawed adventurers exploring the galaxy and singlehandedly vanquishing the alien foe. What about the people who perform the unexciting “blue collar” jobs that make the voyages possible?

A being, of indeterminate gender, maintains a ship’s waste treatment system. A female asteroid miner has a unique companion. It is an alien-constructed being, made from human sperm. It looks exactly like a human, but, on the inside, there is no mind or personality. Imagine an episode of the TV show “The Deadliest Catch” moved to the asteroid belt.

On Titan, a human miner is caught in the conveyor belt that carries the pieces of rock out of the mine, and deposits them in a giant pile, in open vacuum. A trio of women spens their days walking on top of a domed city, patching up holes and cracks in the dome. Another story takes place on an Earth that has run out of energy. The only working motor vehicles are those that people build themselves. There is also a news story about the hazards involved in being part of the crew building a space station in orbit.

This is a strong, well done group of stories about a not-well-known part of society. There is a good variety of stories, from lesser-known authors, that are well worth reading.

Boxers Are A Very Low Maintenance, Easy To Train Dog

The boxer is a mid-sized dog breed that typically stands between 21 and 25 inches tall. They are noted for their muscularity and gorgeous appearance. This breed of dog is extremely loyal and when a friendship is built it lasts forever. The boxer is unique and not for everyone, if you are a new owner of a boxer you have to be aware that they need a lot of attention and training. I’ve owned many different breeds and the Boxer by far is the best I have ever come across. With its short coat, the Boxer is an extremely easy breed to groom.

One should emphasize to the boxer dog that being bossy has a right place, and that you should stand as an authoritative leader with the right power to command. Being alpha will enable you, to control your dog and instill good behavior. The most difficult part of this process is communicating with your dog in a civil, non-violent way that lets it know that you are boss and that this is the rule.

By praising positive behavior and correcting negative behavior you are able to show your dog what is acceptable and what is not in a loving way that does not make them fear you.

When using leash and collar training, the boxer dogs must be trained to trust the handler and accept his or her directions without question. In order for your boxer to be fully trained, the handler must demonstrate the ability to place him into a posture or position he does not want to take. Today, white puppies are often born, but a white Boxer is not acceptable according to the breed standard which recognizes fawn and brindle colors only. In fact, it is a disqualification for Boxers with a total of white markings exceeding one-third of the entire coat. Don’t stop working on the behavior until the behavior your dog performs is an acceptable image of the behavior you described.

Remember, when potty training your Boxer, anytime you spend outdoors early in the morning or late at night is not playtime but serious business. One very important thing to remember is consistency of signals. The reliability of the training depends on how well a dog is able to be sure of what your signals mean.
However, it is important to remember that the best method of teaching a dog is still the reward and appreciation method.

Teach a dog to obey you commands and reward it suitably. The main thing you have to remember in these circumstances is to be patient. From as early as 6 weeks old you should start your boxer dog training as this will help him when he grows up, socialize him, play with him and teach him, but do it in an exciting way and he is more likely to listen.
