My sisters and I were the only kids on the boat. At first the boat went slow and the driver turned on some loud music. All of a sudden we saw some dolphins riding the waves. They were jumping and playing just like children! I was so happy to finally see dolphins.
Sharks have played a key role in the ocean, and have lived with little problems. Until a hit movie that scared and terrorized people out of their seats called jaws was in theaters. Sharks have been around longer than humans have, and they are on top of their food chain. They have few predators, but there worst predator is man himself. Do these so called killing machines who are looking for revenge trying to eat anyone who steps foot in their home.
These orcas are ripped away from their families and brought into an unnatural environment which could be quite stressful. Orcas are highly sociable and emotional animals as a result of “a part of an orca whale’s brain extend[ing] outward adjacent to their limbic system into what neuroscientists call a paralimbic cleft, which processes emotions” (Wise). These are animals that are commonly known as friendly and social, but in captivity, they “exhibit such disturbed behavior as chewing the sides of their tank or swimming in exactly the same pattern for hour after hour” due to anxiety and depression (Visser). These actions that they present are the equivalent to compulsive behaviors in humans with psychological issues such as locking and unlocking doors, obsessively washing hands, or repeating a specific task multiple times a day. Keeping orcas in an obviously psychologically stressinducing environment has no true
“Es Un Buen Tipo Mi Viejo” While I sat on the plane, I thought about life and my newborn cousins who were born several days ago. I pulled open the window blind and looked out the window at the dark sky as we took off. I was excited to visit the Dominican Republic and started daydreaming about eating my favorite meal, “Arroz blanco con lambi y ensalada de pulpo,” I said out loud by accident. I looked next to me and notice my mom giggling overhearing what I just said. My mouth was watering with the thought of having it as my first meal When I arrived to “mi pais”, I went straight to my grandma’s house, where we ate and where my mom and I are going to be staying.
For example, in the opening scene with Chrissie, you see the camera angle underwater looking up at Chrissie swimming with the glow of the moon above her. The film then cuts to eye level with Chrissie as she is being attacked by the great white, dragging her back and forth as she screams for help. Then it cuts to Tom, who is oblivious to what 's going on. He is peacefully lying on the beach, almost passed out drunk. The calmness of Tom gives us contrast to the brutal attack on Chrissie, which intensifies the shark attack when the camera cuts back to Chrissie.
Florida This year my family went to Florida. It was our first family trip, and my only trip that I actually got to go on a plane! My grandpa was over at our house and he was giving my mom some flowers to put out on our patio, and I was in my room. When my mom and grandpa started a conversation about Florida. My grandpa said to my mom, “So this year your mom and I were thinking about taking everyone out to Florida.” So I ran as fast as I could down stairs.
Together with the music and the editing creating tension. it keeps rising and every time the shark attacks 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 without Verna Fields doing a great job blending everything together. The editor made sure through her editing style would make the shark look as authentic as possible. The best scenes in the movie take place on the boat.
The chicken was a little dry, but the potatoes and carrots were nice and tasty. After we ate, we hiked up to go to our cabins. I loved these cabins because it had two of everything in the bathroom. Plus, we had bunk beds that we put our sleeping bags on that were extremely nice and comfortable. Even though it isn't my favorite I enjoyed getting to go to Camp Timberlake, and hope that if you go you like
After a few frantics minutes of Odysseus trying to flip the boat over, Gray Eyed Athena used her divine powers to stab the creature in the eye. The beast let out a screech that only the most terrified and cornered of animals could make and lashed out with its arm and slashed Gray Eyed Athena across the arm. The beast dove back down into the depths
Through the classes, labs, and outdoor missions The Marine Science Center, in Pigeon Key, was just as it was advertised to my class: a Marine Science camp. We participated in several animal based adventures including tide pooling, which was my favorite animal-based adventure. I loved walking around the edges of the sea looking for small, oddball invertebrate. We worked in small groups and it was almost like my group was creating an extremely large collection of them. After an hour or two of intense searching, every team was called to a small tent to input their findings into the pool of invertebrates.
Orcas’ Behind Closed Tanks Imagine you are a four to eight year old child and you are on vacation with your family entering into a SeaWorld. The excitement has been built up from the commercials that show you these huge and majestic animals that are not like the everyday animal you see on a daily basis. The commercials have a way of taking your imagination to another level, and any child even an adult is at awe with the level of performance these orcas’ are putting on. Amongst the magic, laughter, and adrenaline that you feel you don’t question whether or not these wild animals should be contained like they are. Blackfish, a documentary released on July 19, 2013 by Gabriela Cowperthwaite and filmed by Manuel Oteyza, answered
Thunder and rumble, I feel the wrath of God on the ocean we are sailing. Suddenly I hear a crash, and I fly across my cage violently, the yelling of the voices on the vessel in shock and suddenly I hear the words “We’re going down!” A zoo keeper comes down the the hull of the ship and begins opening the cages of animals- the zebra, the monkeys, the hounds, all released waiting patiently for my turn the zookeeper falls over. He does not move and water comes crashing into the hull-I’m going to die. I lie down on the ground as water pours in accepting my fate. Suddenly I see something, no somebody, swim into the half flooded room, he drgs into his pocket forceful and pulls out a ring of keys and unlocks my cage.
