Logos was shown by using statistics of the whale’s life in captivity and characteristics of them as well. Some of these characteristics that were mentioned were they weigh up to 8,000 pounds, have 48
Orca whales are the largest members of the dolphin family. Orcas are very curious creatures, they like to sky hop, which is when they poke their heads out of the water and look around, and they can also dive to as much as a hundred feet. These social animals live in pods and stay with them for their whole lives. They are so family oriented that they can may sleep together in a tight circle and have synchronized breathing. Orcas can grow up to thirty-two feet and can weigh nine tons. They typically eat five percent of their body weight and are amazing hunters. The lifespan of an orca in their
In regards to key developmental aspects of human growth in my life and as I integrate Erickson’s eight stages of development into my 48 years of life, I found that many of my transitional tasks were delayed, or not developed according to Erickson’s time frame. This might be due to the dysfunctional lifestyle, neglected childhood and promiscuous teenage years I had and it has taken me many years to develop my sense of identity, my sense of intimacy, and to change my behavior (Feldman, 2011). In the argument of Piaget he says that children at the age of three to five years think abstractly and this affects their motor
Small groups are the proper environment to develop and grow disciples of Jesus. The purpose of a small group is to develop sacrificial, relational, transformed people who can continue the cycle of disciple development. Small groups must be intentional, individual and missional. There are five primary passages that can be used to form a small group ministry philosophy. Each of these passages have accompanying principles that we can apply to our small group ministries.
A whale has a huge heart, and they travel in pairs. “...they retreat into torpor…” (P.30,L.20). This shows that they are constantly on the verge of death and have no time to fly with another hummingbird. “...But we know this: the animals with the largest hearts in the world generally travel in pairs…” (P.32, L.81-83). This shows that one of the only things we know about whales, is that they travel in pairs, and that means they have the biggest hearts and the most emotions for each other. According to heart size, the amount of emotions a heart holds
On average a killer whale in the ocean lives 60 - 70 years a maximum would be 80 - over 100 years. In captivity a female killer whale live to be about 29 years while a male killer whale lives to be about 17. The year gap between wild and captive orcas is so big because the orcas are too large to live in a 50 ft. deep tank. The most appalling fact to know is that the killer whales are the most prone to diseases in captivity, so they will die sooner than the life expectancy if a disease is caught such as broken teeth. Broken teeth occurs often in captivity. Killer whales are consistently getting treated for dental issues but the effects are unsuccessful. Fractured teeth are caused by biting on the steel gates, the killer whales only bite on the gates for one reason in particular that is wanting to be freed back to the ocean home they belong
When Doyle talks about the blue whales heart he emphasizes the size of it comparing it to a "room "and a "house" also that its valves are “as big as the swinging doors in a saloon” that a “child could walk around in” (292). Though that is not strictly true, by comparing into things that we can visualize we can grasp at the idea of what the blue whales heart should look like. Though very little else is known about the blue whale ,we know that " animals with the largest hearts in the world generally travel in pairs" (292)that suggests that the whale has a joyful life with their partners. Thought that the way it would seem “their penetrating moaning cries, their piercing yearning tongue, can be heard underwater for miles and miles”(292). The larger the heart the greater capacity of love one can give that said it also means the greater the pain one can feel. The constant love one whale feels for its partner can also bring constant pain and fear for its
for the entirety of your math career, youve never calculated a moment’s slope. you only use approximations based on numbers before and after the current moment. That is, of course, until you hit calculus, when everything becomes instantaneous. In calculus, you derive equations to find how things are changing in the now; no need to focus on anything that came before or after. A tendency toward instantaneous moments occurred multiple times junior year.
In captivity they have very little space and cannot behave naturally. A concrete tank can never replace their ocean home. Killer whales are usually around 20 ft-30 ft long, basically the length of a school bus. They travel 100 miles a day in the wild. In captivity, they swim along the same walls about 1,400 times a day. Putting whales in a size of a bathtub is not the best idea for their health and entertainment.
The average life expectancy of a killer whale is an estimated 30 for a male and 50 for a female. However, orcas do exceed this number, often doubling it in the wild. SeaWorld employees follow a script saying that killer whales have a better life living in aquarium type facilities, that they survive longer as a killer whale 's life expectancy is no more than 20 years in the wild (Blackfish). The script employees are trained to use is false, being that the average life expectancy of a killer whale at SeaWorld is around the age of nine (Orca Home). To this date, 37 whales have died in captivity at SeaWorld alone, due to numerous health conditions that are almost entirely avoidable in a natural habitat (The Orca Project).
Born in the country of Spain in the year 1475, the Spanish explorer and conquistador Vasco Nunez de Balboa was the one that establish the town small of Darién, Panama, becoming the first official Spanish governor. In the year 1513, Vasco Nunez de Balboa was the head of the first European expedition going towards what is now known as the Pacific Ocean, but the news that he had discovered this historic founding reached the country of Spain after the king at that time, had sent Pedro Arias de Ávila to serve as the new governor of Darién. Born in 1475 in a small town located in some random province in Castile, Spain, Nunez de Balboa went on to become the first Spaniard to see and claim the Pacific Ocean. When many people in Spain were looking for new opportunities, and jobs in the new land of America, Balboa joined an
According to National Geographic, in the wild, Killer Whales are accustomed to traveling distances of up to 100 miles per day. However, the largest Killer Whale facility for Orcas in captivity in the world - located at Marineland in Antibes, France as stated by the Marineland website, only measures 210 feet long, 100 feet wide and 40 feet deep.
Sometimes words cannot exactly explain what we want to convey, so we need a visual to support it. A similar thing was observed in the article of Alan M. Dershowitz, he cleverly makes use of Ben Shah’s painting in the article to grab the attention of folks. The author writes about a murder case of a paymaster and a guard of the South Braintree by Sacco and Vanzetti, both were Italian immigrant anarchists. Surprisingly, the truth was not revealed that whether Sacco and Vanzetti were the killers and this case is still unsolved. I agree with the author that the trials could not get to the fair results. I believe that the painting is an ironic symbol of the justice. It silently expresses a lot what the text can’t. I think the painting adds words
I won’t accept failure. 2% was how close I was from failing AP Calculus. Calculus class was the only class where I squandered time because I stopped caring. I was willing to accept a D because that was the easiest option. In the end I did not want to accept that because I had something to prove for myself. If I start giving up for a class then that could have an effect on other things that I deem “difficult.”
