The first example of why being skillful is so important in cases of resilience in Unbroken can be noticed when once the plane crashes into the ocean, Louie immediately puts his wits into action. Highlighted in the text: "Louie knew he had to get Phil 's bleeding stopped, but if he went to him, the raft would be lost and all of them would perish. He swam for the raft" (Hillenbrand 3). Louie backtracked and thought about the situations that could be thrown at him for each movement he made. He ended up using his natural instinct which was to save his whole crew over a bleeding cut.
Super heroes and mythological characters in stories inspire us to be our better selves in various ways. One way super heroes and mythological characters inspire us to be our better selves is to help and save others. In the article “Into the Maze of Doom.” It says, “I cannot flee. I must kill the Minotaur or more young Athenians will die”. (14) This tells me that he was brave and he risked his life to save others.
When visiting Cyclopes’ Island, he is forced to save many of his men from the beasts. He retorts after the battle in these words, “‘How do you like the beating we gave you, / you damned cannibal? Eater of guests / under your roof!’” (Homer 874). Odysseus overcame this burden of saving his men, including himself, and defeated the Cyclops. He took this major responsibility in stride and escaped with many lives.
Rosa Parks. Malcolm X. Dr. martin Luther King Jr. All of these people stood up for their rights just as Beth did. So, “If you’re swimming in the ocean and a shark comes at you to attack, hit him in the nose” and stand up for what you believe
SeaWorld is one of the most visited amusement parks in the United States where families are able to get together and see animals and their trainers perform incredible stunts. However, SeaWorld has been under the flame after the public opinion of SeaWorld drastically changed after the release of the movie Blackfish by Gabriela Cowperthwaite in 2012. The documentary Blackfish helped exposed people to the reality of what was really going on behind the scenes at SeaWorld, with everything including their trainers to the overall well-being of the orca whales. Not only has Blackfish exposed how SeaWorld has shortened the lifespan of orcas in captivity, but it shined some light on how the orcas were living, how the orca’s behavior changed, how trainers
The documentary " The Cove" showcases an ethical dilemma in which Richard O'Barry learns the cruelty that dolphins face when in captivity and thus overcomes many barriers to help free the dolphins. Throughout the film, Richard O'Berry and others are involved in various illegal and unethical activities that include lying, spying, destroying property, trespassing and many more. As a former dolphin trainer for one of the most popular shows of the century " Flipper", had brought in a lot of popularity for dolphins. Due to this, many dolphins are used for entertainment purposes especially in sea world where there are more than 100s of dolphins and has posed a greater risk for dolphins. Thus, Richard o Barry believes that he has a moral obligation
Like Chillingworth, he made his cre believe he was a good person, and not an insane revenge-driven whaler. He persuades his crew to follow him by offering a single doubloon to whoever slays Moby Dick. Also like Chillingworth, he lets his revenge on the white whale overwhelm his entire way of life. He makes his crew swear that hey will slay Moby Dick if it’s the last thing they do, and also makes them drink of the captain’s blood from their harpoons. Ahab’s revenge-driven mission to kill Moby Dick eventually gets him, and the rest of his crew, killed.
In the story Beowulf they make Beowulf out to be the hero. I believe that he is the hero because of his way that he presents himself when he gets to as his crewmen walked off the boat and they looked bad in clothes Beowulf looked very nice and very manly other than his crewmen looked bad and also he was a hero because he was the only one to come to and help the town. Defeating the monsters which was mother dragon and the last reason that he was considered a hero because after all the monsters he killed he decided to give all of the gold and supplies that he won from the battle with the monsters to all the people in herot and also he was reconized as a hero because he let God decide his Faith during the battle with the monsters.
When we put orcas into captivity, we are taking a lot more away from them than we think. A killer whale in its natural habitat plays a big role in its life. They learn hunting and survival skills, and get the proper food they need. Not only are we taking them away from their home, but we are taking them away from their families. People will capture the baby whales in nets and take them away from their pods as they desperately try to escape.
As a matter of fact, this tragedy had a very important effect on the people; especially, when the men went hunting for the whale’s blubber and waxy oil. These men never considered how dangerous the sea can be. In the following manner, the story of Moby Dick symbolizes the power of nature. Furthermore, the story talks about this man called Ahab that is the captain of the Pequod crew; it demonstrates his desire for vengeance on a whale that took one of his legs. Ever since that terrifying moment he has seen the whale as an obstacle or a wall that needs to de eliminate.
Everything about placing orcas in captivity is wrong, and it all starts at the capturing of the whales. Its not just the fact that people are taking them from their natural environment, but it 's how the people do it. Pods are located and then hunted down in a quite aggressive manner. Pods are chased into coves with bombs, aircraft, and boats until captured in a corral made of net. One by one, the babies, who are supposed to stay with their mother their entire life, are picked out and kidnaped from the pod.
I have swum with Caribbean reef sharks in the Bahamas and have seen how beautiful and strong they truly are first hand. Sharks are a vital part to every ecosystem they are in and currently being killed at a rate that they cannot reproduce at. Alpha predators are a necessary component of eco-systems because they keep the populations of every trophic level below them in check. You can compare an eco-system to a skyscraper; you need every single part so the entire building does not fall apart. Sharks have the task of killing the wounded, old, and sick fish in schools to keep the stocks of fish healthy and plentiful.
One of the biggest ways this issue strikes you on an emotional level is when tragedy strikes when orcas are kept in captivity. The documentary "Blackfish" highlights just one of these tragedies, when a trainer was killed at Sea World in 2010. So the question comes to all of us why if we know that captivity and this environment is negatively affecting the orcas, do we continue to support this practice by going to the shows and marine parks? The legislation that California has passed brings the ethical issues of keeping these beautiful animals in captivity into the discussion now as well. Even though Sea World has stopped all their breeding programs, and will not be acquiring any new orcas, the question is what will become of the orcas that are currently living at these marine parks.
Odysseus was a strong leader because when he and his men stopped at the island of the Lotus Eaters people there were feeding them an addicting plant that made all of them go back to the plant to find more and not want to go back home. So, Odysseus dragged his men back to the boat and tied his men to the ship so they could go back to the land of Ithaca. for example, this quote proves that he " drove them, all three wailing to the ships tied them down under their rowing benches, and called the rest: all hands aboard; come clear the bench and no one taste the lotus, or lose your hope of home ' '. Here Odysseus that show 's that he was a good leader because he did not give up trying to save his men and not let anybody eat any of the lotus so no one else would lose their hope of going home.
Blackfish Blackfish, directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite, documents the history of Tilikum, a killer whale with a killing streak. Several ex-SeaWorld trainers, eyewitnesses, and a former whale catcher share their perspectives on killer whales in captivity and the attacks; their viewpoint is that the whales have undergone psychosis due to poor living conditions and treatment. Killer whales should not be held captive in their current conditions. In an early scene, a former whale catcher explains the emotional trauma he had when he caught whales such as Tilikum. He described that the workers were instructed to only take the young whales because they were easier to ship.
