Chinchilla Guide

Chinchillas are native to Chile and Peru. In the wild they live in groups so whilst in captivity they are best to be kept with other chinchillas.
They weigh around 1 to 1.5 pounds and can be up to a foot long. They have rounded ears and eyes on either side of a broad head. Their fur is very dense, soft, and pleasant to touch. The fur is often grey, but can be beige, tan, black or white. Chinchillas can live as long as 20 years.
Chinchillas can make wonderful pets for the right family. They are smart, inquisitive, and loving animals. They are active, vocal, and entertaining to watch. Since they can live up to 20 years they can be long time companions.
They are not recommended for young children. Children are often overzealous with affection and could frighten or injure a chinchilla. A chinchilla could possibly bite a child out of fear. Although loving animals, they do require gentle and careful handling.
What Chinchillas need:- Fresh water daily Pelleted food (Chinchillas may pick out favourite parts and miss out on nutrition) Alfalfa or timothy hay. Hay is essential as it keeps the digestive system going and also helps to keep their teeth at a healthy size as they constantly grow throughout their lives! A chew proof cage. Pelleted or shredded paper bedding material. A stoppered water bottle, food bowl or feeder, and a hay rack. Hide areas and tunnels for playing and sleeping. A large exercise wheel with a solid floor. Dust bath and dusting powder for bathing. A variety of chew proof toys to keep your pet entertained. Untreated wooden toys for chewing and wearing down a chinchilla’s ever-growing teeth. A salt block as a mineral supplement. A vitamin C supplement. There are tablets which can be crushed up into their food for extra vitamin C!…...

Advertising Sex or Food?

...David Chinchilla English M01A Professor Hamma 9/28/12 Selling Sex or Selling Food? Sexual imagery has been utilized in advertisements for as long as we can all remember with a crazy rate of success. With the increasing difficulty of advertisers to obtain attention from the social media consumers, the use of both successful and unsuccessful sexual imagery has thrived recently. Certain products such as clothing and cologne are quite easy to sell with sexual imagery. Corporations selling wares such as fast food, however, must have a different approach with their use of sexual imagery. Arby’s Restaurant took such a constructive approach with its one-page advertisement in the 2009 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Arby’s sells their new Roastburger to men aged 18-25 by cleverly placing their product in a place no man can deny looking at. Men who flipped through this issue undoubtedly did a double take and read the entire advertisement and were affected through the suggestive placement of the product. The ad featured two of Arby’s soon-to-be released Roastburger sandwiches covered by a model’s crossed arms. The burgers were positioned side-by-side in the upper third of the ad, with the model’s arms crossed at the wrists at about the center of the ad. The model’s hands were positioned in such a way that they covered a majority of the two burgers, but left some of the top and bottom of each burger visible. The model’s arms extended out of the print area......

Violence Surrounding Marijuana

...like caged animals, because they are caged animals." What she fails to admit is that it is the United States laws that are causing this senseless violence. If the Obama administration wishes to once and for all reduce this unprecedented wave of Mexican drug-gang violence, then it needs to remove the drug lord's primary source of income -- and that’s mar.ijuana trafficking (Newman2). My third article I chose is titled Witness To Mexico's Drug War Escalation: 'Legalizing Marijuana Would Have A Huge Impact’. It is about the nastier side of the drug cartels crimes they have committed from routine beheadings to bodies being melted by acid baths. Presidents like Juan Manuel Santos of Colombia, Otto Perez Molina of Guatemala and Laura Chinchilla of Costa Rica have all recently taken the courageous stand of calling for alternative forms of drug regulation (O’Neill 1). They have all agreed that the United States war on drugs is a failure and have all passed law to decriminalize marijuana but for some reason the United States still doesn’t understand that they are the only ones still fighting marijuana. The government claims success against the cartels and says that they are winning the war but in all reality they are losing, numerous people die every day over something that would be very easy to fix. “In the old days, you’d see people being shot, kidnapped, that kind of thing. But now? You’re more likely to hear about some mass grave with three hundred bodies, or 72 people......

Field Trip

...Outdoor Education remains my favorite field trip of all time due to all of the memorable activities we experienced. For instance, I was able to touch and hold a wide variety of animals that I had never seen until I visited their science center. One animal was a blue tongue skink that reminded me of leather because it was dry and smooth. The chinchilla was also smooth, yet its fur was also the softest that I had ever felt. This goes to show that one can find similarities in unusual places. I would have never guessed that a reptile and a mammal would have anything in common, but their bodies were pleasing to the touch in different ways! In addition, I also was able to scale to great heights when I visited the high ropes course deep in the forest. Once I had my safety harness and helmet, I surged upward on ladders and nets. The nets were not as challenging as the balance beam which turned out to be my favorite because of the patience and determination that were needed. I realize now that even something difficult can be fun. I hope to use this thought in other areas of my life because now I might achieve even more than before. Finally, I loved splashing around Lake Peters in the canoe with my partner. The direction on how to hold the paddle and how to steer were not that hard, but actually doing it on the lake was difficult. It became less difficult with the help of my partner because we had to work together to be successful. This means......

Gender Equality

...labor strengthened… [changing] their role in society” (Gender Roles Within American Marriage). Women have always been banned from many types of jobs, but now they are taking over. There are more women in positions of leadership today than ever before. “Over the past half-century, women have been rapidly collecting the skills and credentials that should allow [them] to take over the world, or at least… half of it” (American Women). “Just over a decade into the 21st century, women's progress can be seen and celebrated across a range of fields” (Global Women’s Progress). According to the 2011 Global Women’s Progress Report many women hold high political office jobs such as Yingluck Shinawatra from Thailand, Dilma Rousseff from Brazil, Laura Chinchilla from Costa Rica, and Julia Gillard Australia. There is even a woman who holds the top spot at the International Monetary Fund and another who have won the Nobel Prize in economics. According to the report there are even self-made women billionaires in Beijing, tech innovators in Silicon Valley, and in countless other areas women are leaving their mark. Women from past centuries would never have dreamed of or imagined women being that high in society today. “A woman in a position of power such as manager of a large firm was totally unheard of” (Female Power). Men have always been the ones to succeed in life since they were the ones that have always worked and women stayed home. A few decades ago in Saudi Arabia “women weren’t......

El Aceso de Las Mujeres Al Poder

...presidente de Panama. Christina Fernandez de Kirchner es llamado „ La Hilary Clinton“ en su pais, porque sucedio a su marido que reduzco la pobreza de mitad. Ademas, su feminidad exacerbada es objeto de numerosas criticas que cuestionan sus competencias politicas. Todo eso, prueba bien que el machismo persiste. Dilma Rousseff, logro ser elegida primera presidente de Brazil sin accumplir ninguno mandato electoral antes. Sin embargo, fue elegida mayoritariamente porque fue la candidata de Lula. Sin embargo, la eleccion de Michelle Bachelet representa una verdad rotura ya que fue elegida en un contexto democratico y con su propio capital. Lo que prueba que una mujer pueder ser elegida sin el apoyo de su marido o de un mentor. Laura Chinchilla, presidente de Costa Rica representa esta nueva generacion de presidente. El caso Juarez ---) La responsa del Gobierno La reaccion de las autoridades en los crimenes de mujeres en este Ciudad, de 1993 hasta hoy, ha sido ineficaz en el cumplimiento de su obligacion de preservar los derechos humanos de la victimas. En efecto delante tanto asesinatos y feminicidios son pocos los arrestos y condenas que han sido applicados. Por eso, ha habido varios sentencias internacionales en contra de Mexico por su inadecuado respuesta a la creciente violencia contra las mujeres. En 2009, se celebro un juicio en la Corte Interamericana de Derechos Humanos contra el Estado Mexicano. Fue considerado responsable de la muerte de ochos......

Report from Interview

...Institution Report from Interview Work at an airline calls for undivided attention, focus and stamina. Top executives find themselves torn between balancing work and family. While work is important in ensuring employees meet their family needs, it has become increasing important for senior executives to try to strike a balance between the two (Masuda & Chinchilla, 2010). Ability to ensure both sides are well catered for requires careful examination of ones conduct and building a clear time frame. Success may be achieved at workplace through putting more efforts and time. This means less time and personal touch with family members, which may be harmful to the wellbeing of all parties. In the long run, it does more harm than good. Maintaining a balance between work and family is crucial as it will ensure support from family members as one pursues their goals at the working place. Undergoing a thorough self transformation to achieve a win-win situation will entail time adjustment, more efforts to complete task within given time frame so that time to see ones family is available and is not disrupted (Masuda & Chinchilla, 2010). Not only will the top executive ensure strict adherence to the schedule but will also need to ensure the entire labor force is moving in the same direction, since failure to do so will mean their family time will be consumed solving institutional problems. An interview with the Chief executive officer of Alaska airline......

World Civilization ( Columbian Exchange)

...were introduced to animals that revolutionized their society. The Greatest impact that the Indians made on the rest of the world was trading crops. The Indians crops such as beans, squash, tomatoes, sweet potatoes and other foods were higher in calories than the old world was used to. It is said that because of the crops, Europe had a drastic population increase after 1700. The Irish became so dependent on potatoes that in the 1800’s over 1 million people were killed by a disease spread through potatoes. Along with the high calorie foods, chocolate, chilies, and tobacco were brought back from the Americas. Although the Indians had no animals to offer that would make everyday life easier, they did introduce them to turkeys, minks, chinchillas, and guinea pigs. The old world’s immunity to disease was much higher than that of Americas. Sexually diseases such as syphilis were known to originate in North America and were spread to the rest of the world as a result of the Columbian Exchange. The Columbian exchange started the massive trading system between continents that we still use today. The exchange killed many Native Americans, but without the epidemic, America would not be immuned to the many fatal disease that were passed over by Europeans. Diseases like smallpox, yellow fever, and the plague are nearly extinct today. This was a great historical significance that linked the world....

Chinchillas

...An essay on chinchilla Think back to the first time you ever heard of chinchilla. At one stage or another, every man woman or child will be faced with the issue of chinchilla. Given that its influence pervades our society, spasmodically it returns to create a new passion amongst those who study its history. Since it was first compared to antidisestablishmentarianism much has been said concerning chinchilla by the over 50, many of whom blame the influence of television. With the primary aim of demonstrating my considerable intellect I will now demonstrate the complexity of the many faceted issue that is chinchilla. Social Factors Interweaving social trends form a strong net in which we are all trapped. The immortal and indispensable phrase ‘honesty is the best policy’ [1] was clearly refering to the impact of chinchilla on today's society. Both tyranny and democracy are tried and questioned. Yet chinchilla irons out misconceptions from our consciousness. Our post-literate society, more than ever before, relies upon chinchilla. Society says that every man must find their own truth. While one sees chinchilla, another may see monkeys playing tennis. Economic Factors Is unemployment inherently bad for an economy? Yes. Of course, chinchilla fits perfectly into the Maiden-Tuesday-Lending model, making allowances for recent changes in interest rates. Oil Prices chinchilla There are a number of reasons which may be attributed to this unquestionable......

Effects of Feminism

...leadership role and major portfolio in politics has increased worldwide. Take the example of Chancellor of Germany, Angela D. Merkel, now running her third term in office. Since elected on 22nd November 2005, she is the first female elected chancellor for Germany. She has helped Germany weathered the financial woes, which has crippled some of her neighboring countries. There is clear evidence that feminism has led to a positive change as her presence involvement and contribution are now widely accepted and appreciated in the political arena encompassing many nations not just in Europe but also the rest of the world. Other prominent women of huge nations with sizeable populations include President Dilma Rousseff of Brazil and President Laura Chinchilla of Costa Rica, all democratically elected. While it may seems that all three women are predominantly from the western culture, however in 2013, Park Geun-hye became the eleventh and the first female president of South Korea setting the precedence for more female candidates to come forward to take on the pinnacle role in South Korea Prime Minister and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina Wajed of Bangladesh which is a Muslim and male-dominated society has paved the way for other Asian countries to follow suit for years to come. There are adequate evidences and examples to prove that women had rose to the pinnacle in political position as listed above are not due to favoritism or nepotism but base on individual competency and......

Paulownia-Fastest Growing Tree

...evaluate the source of the information in judging its credibility. It is a "buyer beware" world, and the Paulownia business is no different. Before you hire someone, it is prudent to check references-more than one or two, and beyond those offered by the applicant. Before you rent to someone, it is prudent to check references-more than one or two, and beyond those offered by the applicant. Before you put your life savings into someone's hands, is it not prudent to check references-more than one or two, and beyond those offered by that person? This is so very important. 2 Are Paulownia trees "chinchillas without fur" or "emus without feathers?" They have been called that, and you know they can be if you permit an unscrupulous person or company to take advantage of you. It depends in large part on the truthfulness and integrity of the person or company you are dealing with. Chinchillas and emus enriched a few people who got in quick, sold a lot of breeding stock, and got out quickly, before their commitments became due. You must have a written, valid and legal contract. And you must have a contract with someone who respects that contract as much as you do to minimize future misunderstandings and unforeseen disagreements. How can we know whom we can safely deal with? Just like hiring and renting, one very effective tool is references; and again, more than one or two.

Logic

...are called syntactical ambiguities. Section 3.4 Fallacies of Presumption, AmbigUity, and Grammatical Analogy 153 Two areas where cases of amphiboly cause serious problems involve contracts and wills. The drafters of these documents often express their intentions in terms of am­ biguous statements, and alternate interpretations of these statements then lead to dif­ ferent conclusions. Examples: Mrs. Hart stated in her will,"lleave my SOO-carat diamond necklace and my pet chinchilla to Alice and Theresa."Therefore, we conclude that Alice gets the necklace and Theresa gets the chinchilla. Mr. James signed a contract that reads,"ln exchange for painting my house, I promise to pay David $5000 and give him my new Cadillac only if he finishes the job by May 1." Therefore, since David did not finish until May 10, it follows that he gets neither the $5000 nor the Cadillac. In the first example, the conclusion obviously favors Alice. Theresa is almost certain to argue that the gift of the necklace and chinchilla should be shared equally by her and Alice. Mrs. Hart could have avoided the dispute by adding either "respectively" or "col­ lectively" to the end of the sentence. In the second example, the conclusion favors Mr. James. David will argue that the condition that he finish by May 1 affected only the Cadillac and that he therefore is entitled to the $5000. The dispute could have been avoided by properly inserting a comma in the language of the promise. Amphiboly differs from......
