This information appears to be encouraging the reader not to boycott seafood because the seafood is becoming more and more sustainable. However, the point of the boycott was to stop the hunting of harp seals; if people wanted to support the swilers, they would not boycott in the first place. This becomes red herring information (Henderson, 2013, p. 52) because it takes the focus off seal hunting, and provides irrelevant
The cause of Poe’s death is still widely debated today. Poe died of encephalitic rabies because of the likeness of Poe’s symptoms and those caused by rabies, Dr.Benitez backs his rabies theory up with irrefutable scientific evidence, also Pollin and Benedetto try to disprove the scientific evidence provided by Dr.Benitez with false information that portrays them as unreliable sources. Poe’s symptoms were very similar to those of rabies. Benitez says that Poe refused alcohol and could barely drink water: “Rabies victims frequently exhibit hydrophobia, or fear of water, because it is painful to swallow” (“Poe’s Death” 187). This statement by Benitez shows that he was hydrophobic and was not drinking anything.
Secondly, an example of the main idea is something that is frowned upon will not get you anywhere and the truth will always come up is when T. Chan Enterprises was asked to get closed down. “If our inspectors seized the product, something probably isn’t right with the fins … explaining why the agency had the authority to shut Chan’s shark-fin operation down”. Mr.Chan’s enterprise was shut down as the EPA and Inspector Paul Feldman caught him red handed as he was exposed of sharks being de-fined and tossed back into the ocean alive. The problem was that Mr.Chan broke the law and he did not rectify the procedure of processing the shark fins causing his whole operation to close. Lastly, an example of the main idea is something that is frowned upon will not get you anywhere and the truth will always come up is when Mr.Chan continued to do work of the shark fins even after they were told to close the operation.
Despite that, an increasing number of people worldwide are against commercial whaling. This is due to the issues associated to commercial whaling such as the inhumane killing methods, the non-demand whale products and the disruption of ecosystem (refer to Figure 1 in Appendix 1). One of the main issues associated to the infamous commercial whaling is the inhumane killing methods. Ideally, humane killing is the causing of death without pain, stress or distress perceptible to the animal, thus, rendering an animal insensitive to pain as swiftly as technically possible is the aim of humane killing (Gillespie, 2005). Unfortunately, methods used in modern commercial whaling does not classify as humane killing.
Price uses sarcasm in her second paragraph to show how she thinks the flamingo trend is stupid. She claims, “This was a little ironic, since Americans had hunted flamingos to extinction in Florida in the late 1800s, for plumes and meat” (Lines 13-15). Through this, Price delineates how flamingos being hunted down was unimportant to Americans when flamingos became popular. Price criticizes the reaction of Americans in the situation of flamingo extinction to situation of flaming trend in order to show two-faced American mindset. Price also utilizes rhetorical question in her essay to further emphasize the importance of color pink.
Good Morning congress Men and Women. Today Destiney Macario, Yesenia Garcia, and Valeria Herrera are giving a speech about how to help the Marine Otters.The Marine Otters are endangered because it is classified as Endangered on the IUCN Red list. The Marine Otter is important because they are a keystone species,their critical importance to the health and stability of the nearshore marine ecosystem.Direct conflict with humans,such as shootings and entrapment in fishing traps and nets pase a major threat to marine otters population. The steps to take the Marine Otter off the list are to not have oil spills because a major spill can kill thousands of animals. This recovery plan would take about 9 years.
The island was becoming to grow to big financially for its own good, hence why Jaws came. Jaws was there to give the mayor the idea that money is not everything. Human lives are not worth the extra green and by the end of the movie the mayor got the message and spent more money to send Sam Quint off to capture the shark. Also if anyone had found out that the mayor had been harboring knowledge that an aggressive shark was present but did not do anything about it, he could have lost his job or maybe sued. Either way he took off more than he could chew and deserved all
Should extinct species be brought back to earth? In my opinion I think that de-extinction is a bad idea. Take the wooly mammoth for example, if scientists were to bring it back they could be taking resources away from other species causing them to disappear, humans might try to harm other animals that aren’t extinct, and scientists would have to successfully re-introduce this animal back into the lifestyle they used to have. Although some people believe that de-extinction is a good thing, I strongly disagree because of those three reasons. One reason that de-extinction is a horrible idea is that the species, lets say a wooly mammoth, could potentially take important resources away from other species causing them to disappear.
A case where the ulcer treatment market was satisfied finding treatment for the symptoms of the disease rather than unraveling the source was proven wrong by Barry Marshal. The researchers argued that bacteria cannot survive in the stomach, but Barry proved them wrong by finding the root of the problem and solving it. He isolated the bacteria and swallowed it and was later diagnosed with the disease and this led to the researchers accepting that the gut bacteria have enormous implications on an individual 's health (Levitt, Dubner and Kobbe 36-46).The chapter discourages against gravitating towards the most obvious and the nearest solutions to a problem and encourages most people to be original thinkers when trying to solve difficulties in life. Most people especially students, like having the easy way out in solutions to problems and fail to engage their minds in coming up with solutions and this leads to lack of innovative thoughts as most of them rely on what has already been
The Norwegian and Japanese positions and arguments to be permitted with the hunting of non-endangered species of whales as a cultural exemption should not be considered. According to the Whale and Dolphin Conservation, “the whaling industry is in decline and the demand for meat is falling” (WDC, n.d.). Given this statement, I would support the ban of whaling worldwide. In addition, it would be difficult and costly to monitor the whaling activity that is taking place in waters where whales frequent. The separation of non-endangered species will not deter whalers from hunting any whale in sight.
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. An example SeaWorld gives of trainer misjudgment, is the incident with trainer John Sillick. On Blackfish we see an orca falling on Mr. Sillick during a show. SeaWorld gives the following response to that event: “Making a poor judgment call based on the routine, Mr. Sillick decided to ride a second perimeter –facing backward -- and took the whale around a second time. This act threw off the timing of the send signal given to the other whale, which performed the behavior exactly as requested, resulting in the accident, not an act of aggression” placing the blame of the incident on the
