Who Says All Wild Animal Creatures can be Trained?

3 comments

Well guess again.

MIAMI (AFP) - – A five-tonne killer whale drowned its trainer on Wednesday in front of horrified onlookers at Florida's SeaWorld entertainment park, police and the park's manager said.

Witnesses said the whale -- involved in two other human fatalities in the past -- leapt out of its tank to grab the 40-year-old trainer during a noontime show, then dragged her into the water to her death.

SeaWorld executive Chuck Tompkins confirmed that the black-and-white bull orca, named Tilikum, dragged trainer Dawn Brancheau into the water, the Orlando Sentinel newspaper reported.

"We're in the process of investigating all of the people and the animals,"
Tompkins said.

"One of our most experienced animal trainers drowned in an incident with one of our killer whales this afternoon," added Dan Brown, general manager at the Orlando, Florida entertainment park.


"This is an extraordinarily difficult time for the SeaWorld parks."

Jim Solomons of the Orange County Sheriff's office earlier said Brancheau died after slipping into the tank.

"She apparently slipped or fell ... and was fatally injured by one of the whales," he said. "This appears to be an accidental death, it's a tragic death."

Tilikum, whose name means "friend" in the Chinook Jargon language spoken among native Americans in the Pacific Northwest, is among the killer whales, dolphins and seals whose shows have made SeaWorld popular.

But he has been involved in previous human deaths, including in 1991 when a part-time trainer at the Sealand of the Pacific facility in Canada was killed in his tank, according to the Humane Society of the United States.

In 1999, after being shipped from Canada to Orlando, the whale was blamed for the death of a man who had apparently stayed in SeaWorld after closing.

The Humane Society said the man jumped into Tilikum's tank and was found dead the next morning, his naked body covered in scratches that suggested he had been dragged around the bottom and sides of the tank.

A witness told CNN that Tilikum attacked the trainer as she showed him off to park visitors following the Dine with Shamu show.

"He just took off like a bat out of you know what, took off really fast and came back around to the glass, jumped up, and grabbed the trainer by the waist and started shaking her violently," witness Victoria Biniak said.

"The sirens were going off. People were running out. I've never seen so many SeaWorld employees come out of the woodwork."

Another witness told CNN that the whales in the tank had begun ignoring the trainers.

"We could tell this whale was not in a good mood at all. We literally could tell it was not cooperating," said the unnamed witness.

Though killer whales, also known as orcas, are a common attraction at entertainment parks, they are known for aggressive "play" and behavior in the wild, including batting seals or dolphins back and forth.

They are huge creatures -- Tilikum weighs at least 11,000 pounds (five tonnes) -- and "are among the most curious of all whales, with a great tendency to 'play' and to manipulate objects," says SeaWorld's website.

Tilikum was captured in November 1983 off the coast of Iceland and is one of several killer whales on display at the Orlando park, which was partially closed down after the trainer's death.

SeaWorld's website said its shows involving killer whales in Orlando and in San Diego, California, have been suspended.

Animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals released a statement saying the death was a "tragedy that didn't have to happen."

"For years, PETA has been calling on SeaWorld to stop confining oceangoing mammals to an area that to them is like the size of a bathtub, and we have also been asking the park to stop forcing the animals to perform silly tricks over and over again," it said.

t = V1 + v2: How to increase traffic and popularity quickly and naturally.

0 comments

When you read the title of this post you may be confused, what is the formula t = vi + v2, and what is the relationship with traffic link, this is also happening with me when I first read one of my friend’s post, but when I read it I understand his posting finally and I found that the formula t = V1 + v2 is also make sense, please read this post up so that you will be more understanding.


------------------------------------Copy start here---------------------------------------------

Please read carefully then apply correctly ....

A philosophy says "Honesty is the Best Policy (Honesty is the political / best strategy)," is what we will prove .... whether honesty concept we can use to generate traffic and more intense popularity beyond the concept of complex expert webmaster or SEO expert ..?... I believe we will achieve that goal if this concept is running properly ..., and if this concept is applying in your web according to the rules, by then:
-Your Web will be swamped with huge traffic visitors day by day, without fuss or tired of the SEO campaign to a lot of web in the internet world.
-Your Web will be flooded huge backlink day by day, without fuss hunt link to a lot of web in the internet world.

If Albert Einstein use the equation E = mc2 to combine mass potential and speed of light to create extreme nuclear energy , then we will use equation = V1 + V2 to combine my web potential and your web potential to generate extreme web traffic and popularity also .

If Einstein use atom plutonium and uranium to make nuclear bombs, then we use the Honesty and accuracy to make a bomb of this traffic and popularity concept.

What do you need to do is follow these steps:

1. Create a post articles as I post this, or copy-paste this post from Copy start here until Copy Finish, and also be entitled: t = V1 + v2, How to increase traffic and popularity quickly and naturally.

2. Copy or make the next powerful sentence existing under the number 3 plug at this website on your part to section that most easily seen by visitor, for example at the top of the sidebar

3. Move or change a link or the url address post (here-1) with your url address, and (here-2) with my URL address post,to find out url address of the post that I make and that you make is to click the title / post title than we make this copy of the address bar.

Next is the post of "powerful sentence" you need to install in your web part (after the change in the url link to its corresponding provisions of the above)

"Want to increase visitor traffic and your web popularity quickly and unlimited ...? Let me ..., I'll do it for you FREE ...!.. Click here-1 and here-2"

-So after the powerful sentence is put on the your web then : if a visitor click the link here-1 he will directly to your link post, and if he click here-2 will directly link to my post ... and this is just keep going unbreakable chain link.

4. Finish, prepare tracker counter and link checker for example sitemeter and Technorati to see a flood of traffic and your web backlink

What is t = V1 + t2 ...?
t: Number of traffic that will be you get on your web in a day
V1: The number of visitors to your web in a day
v2: Number of visitors of the V1 (a visitor from your web visitors) in a day.

Traffic:
For example, my web or your website in one day have an average of 50 visitors .., and all of this we apply the concept (powerful sentences) correctly, and that 50 people from each of 50 people also have visitors from his blog , then the web we will visit in a 50 plus 50 x 50 people on that day = 2550, and will also likely continue to increase day by day, because every day there are always new visitors in the internet world, each day also have a new blogger, or web internet in the world ... PROVE IT!

Popularity:
For example, our web visitors have 50 people in a day, and everyone implement this concept, then in the web that day you will get 100 linkback to your website, a link on Powerful sentence and a link on the link in my multiply 50. and will likely continue to increase day by day ....

Why the need to create links and link your link on my post ...?
... this is to maintain our link eternity, because as we get more links in the post less likely erased ....

Can we do not fair or not fair sabotage this concept, for example, "remove all links of origin" and fill in the web / blogs we own ...? .... Yes, and this concept will not prove to be a maximum of Honesty is a strategy / political answer ..... But I believe that we all want to throw themselves credibility by making such action cheap ...

--------------------------------------------Copy Finish-----------------------------------------

Well, what do you think about this formula? Go ahead and practice on your blog and hope that this strategy is successful

Almost Lover by Raleene Cabrera

Raleene Cabrera


I found this video a long time ago and already shared it from my other blog but I want to share it again now. I am really amazed by Raleene Cabrera's magnificent voice. Now here is a song entitled Almost Lover by A Fine Frenzy covered by Raleene Cabrera and her sister Rizza.


Sing along with Raleene if you know the song:

Your fingertips across my skin
The palm trees swaying in the wind
Images

You sang me Spanish lullabies
The sweetest sadness in your eyes
Clever trick

I never want to see you unhappy
I thought you'd want the same for me

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

We walked along a crowded street
You took my hand and danced with me
Images

And when you left you kissed my lips
You told me you would never let forget these images, no

I never want to see you unhappy
I thought you'd want the same for me

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

I cannot go to the ocean
I cannot drive the streets at night
I cannot wake up in the morning
Without you on my mind
So you're gone and I'm haunted
And I bet you are just fine
Did I make it that easy
To walk right in and out of my life?

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do
