The Sirens are waiting for the god-like hero to come along to save them. They recognize the power they have over men, but also their weakness in that they need one to save them. This appeals to Odysseus’ ego and he risks death to show off his strength. In Atwood’s poem, Odysseus is not seen as strong because he restrains himself against temptation; he is seen as weak because he fails to save the Sirens. John William Waterhouse also recognizes the powerful temptation of the Siren song, but he sees the Sirens as manipulative and evil, and paints them to look that way.
Hammerhead sharks are found in ecosystems in temperate and tropical oceans. They live in these types of oceans, because if it was a colder climate they would die from hypothermia and soon the species would become extinct. These sharks like to stay in schools up to 100 in numbers. The reason they stick together is there is more protection in numbers and they can kill bigger prey like big great white sharks. Next Hammerhead sharks gets there name for its flat shaped head and some people think it is useless to the shark.
Therefore, if release is not possible, it is tempting say that the killer whales remaining in captivity should be protected and put in better tanks and that they should not be forced to perform. This would still, however, violate the five freedoms under the animal welfare act. Thus, the only other option when release is not possible, is humane euthanasia. This would clearly not go well with the public, as they would just see the overriding organization that put the act into motion as heartless murderers, when in reality, they would be trying to do what is best for the killer whales. Furthermore, I feel that an animal welfare act should be declared to prevent further capture of killer
I disagree with the statement Captain Ahab had positive character traits that were evident in his relationship with crew members in the book Moby Dick written by Herman Melville. In my opinion Captain Ahab had one mission in mind and that was to slay the beast that dismembered him. Captain Ahab had a vendetta and at times lost focus of what really mattered. Captain Ahab put the lives of his crew members in danger and spoke to them in a disrespectful manner. The following example found in Chapter 28 of Moby Dick describes how the crew envisioned Captain Ahab and how he ruled his ship.
Orcas with different backgrounds and dialects are placed together without much thought about how this could affect them. A killer whale named Tilikum was placed in Sealand and he was expected to perform tricks that he had never done, and if he performed them incorrectly all of the whales were withheld food. “This annoyed the others, so they would rake him with their teeth, causing him to bleed” (Lewis). In the wild, when a dominant orca begins showing aggression the other orca has thousands of miles to swim away and flee the scene. However, these animals are in pools where they do not have that option.
I think Killer Whales should not be in captivity because, of the injures they can get in their tanks, how they get stressed out and they are better in the wild. The first reason why I think should not be in captivity is of what happens in their tank. The first piece of evidence from the PETA practical “Aquariums and Marine Parks” is that since the tanks for the orcas are usually small for them, they get insane because of the echolocation they use. This makes me think that since their fin sometimes curves, that they would get injured while swimming. In addition, this might make the whale die faster than what they are supposed to live to.
I’d like to know” (Odyssey.9.274-276), not out of the goodness of his heart, but because he wants to destroy their ship. Odysseus, ever the quick thinker, realizes this, and instead of replying with the truth, which would leave him with no ship to sail back home with, he lies and says, “My ship? Poseidon smashed it to pieces / Against the rocks at the border of your land” (Oddysey.9.275-276). By not disclaiming
His constant anxiety of the water causes Brody to feel less of himself and as result lets the mayor step over him. Aware that Brody has a responsibility and duty in Amity island, he lets Mayor Vaughan gain control and power over him by keeping the beaches open. Brody acknowledges that the only way for him to gain acceptance is to get rid of the shark and face his biggest fear. As a result, Brody seeks help from Quint, a fish hunter, and together with the help of Hooper, they set out to find the great white shark. Ultimately, the shark dies of anoxia and Brody swims back to shore as the hero of the island ( Benchley
Instead of the thrill of the catch, he finds that “Perfection has destroyed sport.” (Stegner, p.39) Although at first the ease of catching fish is appealing, the narrator soon understands that humans require failure. There is no failing in this Paradise in which he is intruding. The narrator ponders whether there was “Any record of flycasting in Paradise?” to which the answer must surely be no (Stegner, p.39). Why would man need to fish, or even attempt to fish, when God and Paradise provided so readily whatever was needed? It is apparent that the challenge is encoded within human beings.
2. Yes, whaling ban is violating these nation’s sovereignty because they are not being allowed to do an activity that is in conformity with their legislations and that is not threatening other countries in any way. Let’s imagine an extreme situation, what would happen if other countries decided that deer hunting should be banned? How do you think that the USA would react? So I think that other countries are not being reasonable and considerate to Norwegian and Japanese traditions.
