Following that, Santiago became acquainted with the ferocious sharks, who consequently tore apart and ate the Marlin. When Santiago sailed back to shore, he then began the long, painful journey home. The religious symbolism behind events from The Old Man and the Sea, magnify Santiago and the Marlin to the extent of resembling Christ. Through the struggle, pain, and the final path leading to
Rory McAuley, a shark expert with the Department of Fisheries, “asserts that the film Jaws is a seminal point for most media responses and the histrionic reporting reinforces popular images of great whites as man-eating predators” (Francis, 44) McAuley also states that “shark attacks do not need this form of hype because people are interested in[shark attacks] anyway.” (Francis, 44) Before the turn of the twentieth century, anything known about sharks was mostly based on “myths and sea lore.” (Francis, 45) Previous to more recent times, people believed sea monsters and serpents were skulking in the unknown depths of the ocean. When swimming became a popular recreational activity, the average swimmer knew or cared very little about sharks. During the 1900s, people in the United States did not believe that sharks attacked people, it was thought that they were harmless. However, in 1916, the people of America were astounded by a twelve day series of shark attacks in New Jersey that killed four people. The New York Times, and other popular newspapers headlined this event.
They use harpoon gun that connects the harpoon to the shark and the barrel. By them doing this every time before the shark attacks the barrels come up. Together with, the music and the editing create great tension it keeps rising and every time the shark attacks he has his own music that brings the film from a 5 to a 10. Without sound editing this movie would not have the Hitchcock horror feel like it does Verna Fields did a great job blending everything together. Verna Fields made sure through her editing style she used would make the shark look as authentic as possible.
Tilikum is well known for killing his trainer at SeaWorld Orlando in 2010. When Tilikum died, SeaWorld said it was ‘deeply saddened’ by the killer whale’s death, saying Tilikum had suffered serious health issues but did not give any cause of death. Tilikum was estimated to be 36 years old, and assumed to be born in the waters off from Iceland. The famous orca was featured in the documentary Blackfish, which criticized animal parks that keep killer whales in captivity. Tilikum’s trainer Dawn Brancheau died after Tilikum dragged her underwater by her hair and repeatedly struck her, whilst she was performing with him in the water.
When killer whales have attacked sharks they have turned the sharks upside down. When a shark is turned upside down they tend to go into a paralyzed state and can do nothing to fight back. Killer whales have learned that doing this move has shown
They only attack in captivity because of the anxiety caused by being locked up. A great example would be the attack on February 21 1991. A whale named Tilikum and two other whales pulled a trainer to the bottom of their tank, where she ultimately
In the article about the shark attack in South Africa by ESPN, the article talks about surfing professional Mick Fanning’s unbelievable escape from a great white shark attack.

As the men were swimming out into the bay on their surf boards Fanning’s board was attacked by the great white shark. The shark grabbed the cord by Fanning’s ankle. Fanning was dragged off the board and into the water, but he kicked, punched and screamed at the shark and took his ankle cord off.
That's when Cheswick jams his fingers into the grate at the bottom of the pool and drowns himself. This may have been prevented if McMurphy would have stood up for Cheswick against Nurse Ratched but he didn't. Therefore this shows McMurphy has tremendous power now in the ward and Nurse Ratched knows it. That’s you can say Nurse Ratched fears McMurphy because he's not like the rest of the patients that she can control McMurphy is different. For my third and final example is how McMurphy organizes the Deep Sea Fishing trip and just needs one more man for the trip.
The relationship of African-American slaves to their owners have been portrayed with a sense of dependency. In John Singleton Copley’s “Watson and the Shark” (c. 1778) and William Sidney Mount’s “Eel Spearing at Setauket” (c. 1845), each artist depicts a dependent relationship between master and slave. Copley’s “Watson and the Shark” is a painting that was commissioned to tell the story of a shark attack that happened to Brook Watson. The painting includes nine different people trying to help the tenth person, Watson, who was attacked by the shark. Watson lays prone and naked in the water about to be attacked by the shark for the third time.
The killer whales in captivity are very hostile, when the trainers get in the water it's a perfect opportunity for the whales to grab them and drag them down. There has been various occasions where trainers have died or been near to death. On one occasion a trainer was grabbed by the foot and dragged down into the water for up to a 1:30 repeatedly, eventually the killer whale let go and the trainer was free but he was close to death. Nevertheless the trainers work alongside these mammals everyday and make connections to them like someone would a pet: “Those are not your whales, Ya know, you love them, and you think, I'm the one that touches them, feeds them, keeps them alive, gives them the care that they need. They're NOT your whales.
Sharks have the task of killing the wounded, old, and sick fish in schools to keep the stocks of fish healthy and plentiful. Andy Dehart, Discovery Channel Shark Advisor, spoke about the North Carolina shark over fishing problem. The shark populations on the East Coast were extremely over-fished which lead to the over population of sting rays, a main food-stock for sharks. The stingrays in turn decimated the shellfish populations on the East Coast, leading to calm and shellfish shortages. This shows that sharks are necessary for every eco-system and their destruction affects us in more ways then we can imagine.
Odysseus then went to the beach and began to swim out into the ocean. After an hour or two of swimming in the ocean Odysseus decided to cut himself to lure a shark. After he did this he only had to wait a couple minutes until a shark appeared. The shark began to circle Odysseus waiting for a moment to attack, and Odysseus was following the shark waiting to attack as well. Suddenly the shark made its move at Odysseus, but Odysseus was one step ahead and he flailed to the side and jabbed his spear into the heart of the shark killing it.
A couple minutes later something happened that no one suspected. A couple minutes after they got to the beach, Bethany was lying on her board and she was dangling her arm in the water. Before she knew it a shark came out the water and bit her arm clean off. Bethany didn’t panic, she didn’t even scream. She called out as calm as she could and said ‘’I just got attacked by a shark!’’ Alana’s dad had gotten to her first and pushed her up to the shore.
They knew Tilikum was dangerous because in his profile information it states, “Sometimes lunging toward control trainer” 70 plus killer whale trainer accidents but no one talks about them. Only why the trainers have close relationships with the whales because they are feeding them fish. All whales in captivity are traumatized. (Blackfish) The campaign is called “Meet the Animals” that involves introducing their
John Crowe, a man who was on a whale capturing trip, talked in a documentary about how his crew was instructed to cut open the dead whales, fill them with rocks, and sink them to the bottom of the ocean. Even he admitted that this was horrible and something he wish would have never happened (Sorren,
