The main purpose of Blackfish is to answer why a captured whale would become so aggressive and turn on its trainers. To answer this Cowperthwaite frames the documentary around Tilikum by interviewing experts in the field such as Lori Marino (Director of Science with Non-human Rights Program), and former SeaWorld trainers, such as John Hardgrove who recall capturing young orca 's, like Tilikum, away from their families and placing them into solitary confinement. One of the most emotionally gripping parts of the film is a heartbreaking
They even began to question SeaWorld by posting those on Twitter, Facebook, and other social media sites that they have. The activists campaigned against SeaWorld through online petitions such as Change.org (Gibson). As stated in the Constitution, the people hold the freedom of speech, exercising this right. With all of these questions and demands for explanations, SeaWorld finally “stepped up its online game” within a few months. Despite they denied most of the accusations, labeling Blackfish a propaganda, the activists were still fighting for the end to killer whale captivity.
Some agree that vaccination protects the child and when most children are vaccinated, this creates herd immunity. This form of immunity protects and lowers the risks of a virus outbreak in the community because viruses are likely disrupted when everyone's vaccinated. Further, some believe vaccines are usually safe and the benefits of vaccination outweigh the risks. They point out, that most vaccine reactions are usually minor and temporary, such as a sore arm, hives, fever and rarely causes serious health symptoms. On the other hand, the parents of the anti-vaccine movement do not vaccinate their children, while others choose the alternative vaccination schedule.
Vicki Gunvalson has went as far as to defend Brooks Ayers on her Bravo blog. This could simply all be because of their legal document, but nobody knows that for sure. Gunvalson has shared that nobody has ever given her a document of any kind proving that Brooks doesn 't have cancer. Here is a bit of what Vicki Gunvalson had to say on her blog. As I write this blog, I have so many mixed emotions, but mostly it 's sadness and betrayal.
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.
Wild animals such as the killer whales should not be kept in captivity because they are dangerous , breeding a dangerous whales produces more potentially danger. Tilikum is known for his killing Sealand trainer Keltie Byrne .” When she fell into the pool containing all three orcas, she was pulled to the bottom of the enclosure by Tilikum tossed around among the three orcas and ultimately drowned “.Seaworld heard that the 12,000 pound orca was on the market they quickly purchased him for its breeding program. 54 percent of Seaworld 's orcas have his genes.The fact that seaworld is breeding their most dangerous whale tilikum, it should be taken into further into account, because the more whales in captivity with his DNA the more dangerous work becomes for trainers and other that encounter these animals. Since keeping whales in captivity is dangerous we should not be breeding
In the 1930’s there were not guidance counselors in every town, there were not health departments where teen mothers can go to receive advice, there was not a stable law enforcement (at least in this area at the time). If these murders were to happen here, in 2015 there is no way that the Pemberton’s could get away with it. Serena would not be considered manipulative, aggressive and ahead of her time, but instead she would be classified as a sociopathic serial killer. Rachel would not struggle as hard if she had counselors, financial support, and the correct health care necessary for her and her child. This book is revolutionary in the sense that people now can read it and see these differences and not only appreciate the time that we live in, but also have a greater understanding of the evolution of psychological studies and how the world was when these classifications came
Another thing that they state is that they have low rates of high school and college graduations. Since they aren’t graduating and they go into the world without knowing what to do and since the unemployment rate is down they will go to drinking. The last thing that they stated was the fact that Native Americans don’t have medical insurance or access to health care so it makes it hard for them to get the help they need and if they are in pain then they can turn to alcohol to forget about the pain. “Unlike other cultures that have ingested alcohol for thousands of years, the relationship between indigenous Americans and alcohol is relatively new” (Alcohol: It 's Different For Native Americans). I find this a good problem because it makes sense they have built up a higher tolerance and they end up being addicted to them.
Although there are certain graphic scenes that more than spell out what is happening, there isn’t a single rape scene. There are no gratuitous flashbacks to when she was being sexual assaulted, nothing to pull the focus repeatedly back to the shock of the rape. By focusing on how Jessica’s year of sexual and emotional abuse has affected her and how she continues to work through her trauma, the series moves away from cheap shots and expresses a concern for survivors rather than what they have survivors. If sexual assault is included in a narrative, it should convey the idea that although it certainly impacted its victims, it does not define them. There should be more stories about what rape does, not what rape
Some believe that the virus that is being vaccinated against is alive in the vaccines, while others just have personal beliefs. Parents will let their unvaccinated child be treated for a brain infection, that was caused by a preventable disease, with weeks of IV antibiotics, yet still say no to vaccinations. If a parent did not provide their child with the right medical attention for a broken bone, child protective services would most likely apprehend the child and the parent could be charged with negligence. Many people have double standards when it comes to vaccinations and medical treatment. There is a very common misconception that vaccinations are optional.
They had to pay to ship the kids of the guards to school ,and they also had to ship food over to feed prisoners and guards. So, those boats gas was super expensive. Lastly, there was no use for Alcatraz anymore due to they lifted the prohibition act ,and there wasn 't as much murders as there was before due to the lift of the prohibition act. That was why Alcatraz had to close Alcatraz was a one of a kind super max prison that had to close. It had it’s up 's and downs as a prison but it always found a way to keep prisoners out of trouble.
Lars Gustafson 11/4/15 GEOG 304 Research Paper: Shark Finning With an alarming one in four shark species endangered across the globe, we have come to a breaking point where our oceans ecosystems could suffer permanent damage if the practice of shark finning in the oceans off of Eastern Asia continues as shark population’s plummet. According to www.stopsharkfinning.net, tens of millions of sharks are killed every single year just for the fins that are the main ingredient in shark fin soup. Shark fins are harvested to feed the growing demand for shark fin soup that is an Asian delicacy food. When the sharks are finned they are usually thrown back into the water and left to drown slowly. Sharks rely on their fins to swim and allow water to
This particular source focuses on the history, advantages, and the disadvantages that may arise while an alert is sent out. Amber Hagerman- a nine-year-old girl who resided in Arlington, Texas disappeared in 1998. Amber was presumed missing for four days, until her body was found. Due to lack of resources and technology available at the time this pedophile is still roaming our streets. There were no laws in place to trigger alerts when Amber disappeared, which made it harder to ask the public for help.
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.
Batman wasn’t put in Lycra and superman wasn’t asked to wear a duffle coat. Allowing further gun control would slowly chip away at gun ownership rights in the same way that sexism activists have chipped away at the movie and gaming industry and have made women ashamed to show their bodies in a feminine
