The decisions used by the director helped create an even greater final cut. Many scenes would feel a lot different if the shark would've been used more often like it was planned in pre-production before they couldn't get the Shark built fast enough before a lot of the beginning scenes were already filmed. Many scenes in the beginning where you think the shark is there was the director pulling on the girl who is the first person to die in the movie. This was Steven Spielberg biggest obstacle that he was working on up to that point and having a great editor like Verna Fields who won an award for this movie did many things during the edit that were very uncommon during that time like editing behind where you would normally cut so it would feel a little weird to the viewer. Everything about Jaws is just a little different and it made a movie that I couldn't keep from watching and deserves every award it won.
In the film Blackfish by Gabriela Cowperthwaite, the scene in which Seaworld trainer Kenneth Peters, almost died when he was repeatedly pulled and dragged under the water by the killer whale kasatka, was by the most breathtaking and disturbing footage presented throughout the film. Based on this scene, the director is arguing that the captivity of Killer whales is inhumane, because the emotions humans contain and express are equivalent or inferior to those of animals, which can lead to extreme mental instability. Similarly Mark twain also touches upon the ideas of animals being equal or superior towards humans in “The Lowest Animal”. Furthermore, Twain brilliantly and satirically describes the animal kingdom and the placement of humans on it. He argues that Animals are the lower species when he states that “ the higher animals have no religion.
Since the display of captive whales has begun, one hundred and fifty-four people have either been injured or killed by a whale attack (Jacobs). For instance, Dawn Brancheau was killed by the tix ton bull orca whale, Tilikum (”Should Orcas Be Kept in Captivity?”). Tilikum was separated from his mother when he was two years old and had been moved from park to park his entire life. The separation issues from losing his mother and never having a true home had an immense physiological effect on Tilikum that caused him to lash out and kill one of the most experienced trainers at Sea World. Another instance of a deadly killer whale attack happened in Spain.
Dolphins are wild creatures of the sea, intelligent animals that shouldn 't be living in captivity. Captivity isn’t their regular habitat, their normal life is chasing fish on the sea. We capture them to A life in a small tank which is not healthy for dolphins. They have been slaughtered on the coast of Japan, Taiji. So after seeing what conditions some dolphins are capture and kill by Japanese fishermen on The Cove, it made me question the situations of all the dolphins that we currently saw in dolphinarium making acrobatics in captivity because money can buy everything but happiness and freedom.
That’s so crazy! Some people like to think that if SeaWorld has to close down, then so should the zoo. But that is really different, at the zoo no know has been hurt by an animal (at least I don’t think so), but at SeaWorld they have been many death occurred, because kids think it is safe for them to touch the animals, plus while training the orcas killed the trainers. “Orcas in the wild have an average life expectancy of 30 to 50 years—their estimated maximum lifespan is 60 to 70 years for males and 80 to over 100 for females. The average age of death for orcas who have died at SeaWorld is 13 years old,” by SeaWorldog Hunt.
Haline Penaloza April 28, 2016 Hello humans, I’m a non-threatening hammerhead shark writing this letter for you humans. There are many things wrong in this world and one of the biggest issues would be the killing of my kind. Around 100 million of the shark species are killed each year and very well be gone in the next decades. We are getting killed by greed of people while our existence plays a huge role in the ocean ecosystem. We are really amazing creatures.
Since the shark fins are second most valuable illegal trade, after drugs , the hunting is done around the world and the fins are sent to China and other countries where the Asian traditions exist. Tens of millions of sharks are every year facing a slow death because of finning. The shark is caught and they remove the fins and then throw it back into the ocean – still alive. The death is often in the end caused by starvation, being eaten by other fish or drowning since they can no longer be in constant movement and therefor not extract oxygen from the water. This long tradition has now led to some shark populations being declined to up to 98% in the last fifteen
The Deepwater Horizon disaster had several health concerns other than claiming lives of eleven people. Reports by Solomon & Janssen (2010) show that over eight hundred thousand seabirds died after the incident and also many whales and dolphins died or were severely affected by the disaster. More than fifty thousand people who were involved in the clean-up activities were exposed to dangerous chemicals which would have adverse effects on their health. The effects of spillage could bring health problems to the fish consumers and also the reduction in fish consumption led to a decline in the fishing industry leading to loss of
The Taiji fishermen on the other hand unnecessarily slay thousands of dolphins by bombarding them with agonizingly loud noises. These sounds panic the adults and babies alike and forces them to be driven to the shore where they are promptly slaughtered. Dolphins have a much higher intelligence than other whales and should not be subjected to
When FSLIC started to bail out in 1983, it costs FSLIC $20 billion but it had only $6 billion in reserve at that time which led to its bankruptcy. Then in 1985, oil prices fell and some people who invested their money in thrifts defaulted because it made their investments unprofitable. Between 1982 and 1985, the thrift industry expanded as the funds were flowing in this industry due to the shift to the financial market. During this time there was a decline in mortgage lending of savings and loans institutions from 78% to
Orcas were not the only animals at SeaWorld exhibiting aggressive behavior. Several instances have been documented in which dolphins have acted aggressively to both a SeaWorld trainer and SeaWorld patrons. According to USA Today’s article, “Captive animals ' attack on trainers and public” dolphins have engaged in aggressive behavior. “In 2000 a dolphin entangled a trainer in a net, spun her around and held her underwater during a dolphin capture exercise. The trainer suffered three factures and torn ligaments in her right arm.
They use footage from different sources, showing trainers in the pool with the orcas and on the background a 911 call plays while these scenes are shown. Here Blackfish is raising the audience’s tension to believe that was the moment of that trainer’s demise. Various former SeaWorld trainers are then interviewed, and say the incidents with the trainers happened due to the aggressive behavior of the whales trying to harm the trainers. Dr. Dave Duffus also states that these attacks were a cause of the rigorous training the whales go through, making them aggressive towards the trainers. On SeaWorld’s response they state that these events were accidents, and that the cause of death was not due to the whales, but because of the trainers’ negligence.
