Dolphin Swimming

...Dolphin Swimming The cool blue water soothed my skin; the sun soaked my hair; the squeaky voice of my new dolphin friend filled my ears. These memories fill my head when I think of San Diego. My vacation in California brought many exciting adventures and new experiences that will always be special to me. It all started when I was eleven years old and I heard that swimming next to a dolphin, which at the time was one of my favorite animals, could become a reality well I begged my mom to the point of annoyance and she finally gave in. So, the following Friday we started our drive to Sea World in San Diego, California. Once we arrived at Sea World my family and I went to find out the price and requirements. We found out that to swim with a dolphin I had to be over the age of ten…Check! At least four feet tall… Check! And that was it, after a quick lesson I was ready to go. As I was waist deep in water next to the dolphin I could hear the rustles of the water as water splashed onto my face and I could taste the salt water emerging into my mouth as the dolphin and I played around. The instructor taught me hand-signals which was how I could communicate with the dolphin. Also, I learned that dolphins can understand over one hundred human words and phrases. This was just one of many interesting facts I learned on my trip to San Diego. Furthermore, being with the dolphin, whose name I can’t recall, was incredible. This was a moment I won’t ever forget and my only issue is I wish...

Easter Island

...Rapa Nui, or Easter Island is a tiny speck of land secluded in the southeastern part of the Pacific Ocean. "Ancient voyaging from the central islands of eastern Polynesia would have normally gone against the prevailing trade winds, with the island forming only a small target, although westerly winds associated with periodic ENSO may have carried Polynesian colonists to the island (Anderson, Caveides and Walden, Finney)". Volcanoes constitute the three rims of Rapa Nui. In addition to the cones of three dominant volcanoes (Rano Kao, Poike, and Maunga Terevaka), Easter Island's landscape is also dotted with nearly 70 subsidiary cones. The most ancient stones are 500,000 year old alkali basalt/hawaiite lava flows constructing the Poike composite volcano at the island's eastern edge. Poike, which was formerly an island that eventually became joined to Terevaka by basalt flows emitted from Terevaka, has been seriously crumbled by the sea on each and every edge. The southwest flank of Rapa Nui was created by the Kao volcano. The Rano Kao lake inside the volcano's crater is one of Easter Island's only three pure chunks of crisp water. The water from the exceedingly submerged crater, which is approximately 3,000 feet in width, is carried to Easter Island's capital, Hanga Roa. The crater is roughly a mile in diameter and features a unique microclimate protected from winds. The lake has an abundance of climbing plants. The interior declivity was the spot of the most recent wild......

Navy Dolphins

...Brandon Farrow Mrs. Cox English 1 11/11/13 Navy Dolphins Dolphins are smart and amazing creatures. Scientists say they might almost be smarter than humans; they adapt really quick to their environment. The Navy is one branch of the United States armed forces that conducts military operations at sea. The Navy has programs with animals to help them protect the nation. The Navy and dolphins work together to control warfare in the water by using their sonar to track underwater mines and to keep citizens safe. These next paragraphs will explain how the dolphins and navy work together.   One of the first dolphins used by the Navy was Tuffy. “Tuf Goy [Tuffy] joined the marine mammal program at Point Mugu in May 1964. By the end of September of 1964, Tuffy was retrieving a ring from the bottom of the lagoon at a depth of 200 feet” (Wood, 1973). In July of 1965, Tuffy was asked to participate in the Sealab II project with his main job being to help with the rescuing of a lost diver. Tuffy had a secondary job also of “carrying small objects-tools, for example-from the surface down to aquanauts working outside the habitat.” (Wood, 1973) “Tuffy repeatedly dove 200 feet to the Sea Lab II installation, carrying mail and tools to navy personal. To prepare for underwater tasks, Tuffy trained for six weeks and “learned to respond to a noise buzzer for the tests” (Presnall, 2002,) Judith Presnall’s book Navy Dolphins (2002), gives a visual image of Tuffy in training for rescuing lost...

The Island

...The Island In an isolated building, thousands of people are trapped. A theory goes around this building among the people who lives there. All the people are ‘’the survivors’’, who has survived something, which has killed every other person outside the building. There is absolutely no life outside this particular building. They are lucky to be here, because they were rescued. Their only hope in life, is to win some kind of lottery, which means they are going to be moved to a sacred place called The Island, instead of living in this building, where they do everything the same way everyday. Everything in this building, which they live in, is a very sterile environment. Everything is white. Everything is placed in a special order, and everything is normal for these people. What they don’t know is, that they are actually clones. They’ve been captured, to participate in a huge experiment, made by some rich men – including a man called Dr. Merrick. From the moment they were picked, till they were ‘’born as a clone’’ they have been laid in a building with lots of clones next to each other. Every clone sees the same ‘’show’’ about how great this ‘’Island’’ is. They have been hypnotised into wanting something, they didn’t even know existed, before they were coming to this place. When they are born as clones, they all wants to go to The Island, because this should be the dream place to be. Dr. Merrick is the man who rules everything in this isolated building. He knows every......

The Island

...The Island In the year 2019, the world is contaminated. Thousands of ‘people’ are led to believe that they live in an isolatet building, which contains noncontaimed survivers. What they do not know is that they are clones; created to be harvestet for their bodyparts and that there is no contamination what so ever. Because they have been manipulated, the only thing that they strive for is to win the lottery, meaning to be chosen to go to The Island – the only uncontamined place left on the planet, the place which gives them hope and a purpose in their lives. The lottery is only an excuse to get the clones to leave their safe surroundings willingly, without them knowing anything about their destiny and to avoid any suspicion. Their sponsors – the people who pay a lot of money to be cloned are not aware of what is actually going on. They have been told that the clones are maintained in a persistent vegetative state, that they never achieve consciousness. The clones are participants in a huge unethical project, which the rest of the world is oblivious to and the man who runs the company, Dr. Merrick is the one behind the fraud. 
The building the clones live in is portraied as a very cold and sterile enviroment. Every room is bright and white. The white color is a consistens feature and the residents are all wearing identical white outfits. 
Everything from moodswings to a little change in sleeppatterns are automaticly recorded, sexual behavior is non-existent, because the......

The Island

...Little Island There isn’t much to it, nothing but some houses on stilts, a bunch of boats, and Cajuns. It has always been my family’s vacation spot. Years ago my grandfather, my dad, and my uncle together bought a shack on stilts. It was to be my home away from home. When I was young I always wanted to go to the island. One time my Father and I were getting ready to leave and I started having fever, but I didn’t tell anyone for fear of not being allowed to go. With its ramshackle houses, and sand the color of mud along the beach, many people don’t understand why I like it so much. It has always been my sanctuary, the place where nothing back home mattered for a time. The hardest decision to make is whether to have fish or shrimp for dinner, and most of the time we ended up having both. The island is seven miles long and no more than half a mile wide. In the grocery store, or rather general store, called the Sureway, a replica of the Louisiana state record Warsaw grouper hangs. Seafood is everywhere, boiled (pronounced balled) shrimp, crawfish, and blue crab, especially blue crab, abound. The island smells like salt with a hint of fish. The fish camp, as we call it, is nothing more than a building with some window units, a nineteen forties chamber stove, and several beds. Despite its simplicity and smallness, it is heaven on earth. The Sand Dollar Marina, where we launch and keep our boat, is at the far end of the island. Pleasure fishers and charter fishers alike...

...Dolphin Stephen Mensah Animal When I think of a Dolphin, I think of smart, playful and entertaining creatures. Dolphins usually have a large forehead, and if you cut their teeth in half it makes a perfectly rounded circle. Every time that a dolphin comes to mind, I think of happy, joyful creatures that are friendly, since people and dolphins have a good relationship in our time. Even though dolphins weight around 350 pounds to be average, this isn’t quite heavy when being compared to other sea creatures. In fact, dolphins are one of the best swimmers in the ocean. Melody To help my audience get familiar with happy creature like dolphins, I chose a happy sounding instrument. I associate trumpets with dolphins since both have a ride range of pitches that they convey. The trumpet is a happy sounding instrument. To be more specific, the sounds that the trumpet makes and the noises that the dolphins make are quite similar. This can be seen with the communication of dolphins, since they give off a higher pitched happy sounding noise, similar to the trumpet. Accompaniment. I would use a piano to accompany the trumpet. Pianos also have a ride range of pitches that they can make just like the trumpet. Similarly to the trumpet, the piano has a happy sounding, joyful tune to its pitches. This directly relates to dolphins since dolphins also convey or give off happy sounding pitches with the noises that they make. If the audience doesn’t have any clue about dolphins, there’s no...

Death of Dolphin

...The reflection on the death of a dolphin Recently a dolphin who died in the southern chinese city of Sanya has sparked nationwide anger because of the unreasonable behaviour of the tourists who just held the injured dolphin and took pictures to show off on the weibo. Some people think it shows us that a large part of chinese people are in lack of moral values and they’re indifferent to the death of animals even though such animals are as intelligent as human and see us as faithful friends.We face too many betrayals nowadays and most of time we use the same crucial way to protect ourselves ignoring the principle or others’ feelings.What’s more,another opinion says that the restriction of the current law system make the non-endangered species can’t get protection and raise public awareness which will finally cause them on the fringe of extinction.The report also revealed the dirty trade in the bear paws to satisfy the large amount of nutritive food in the traditional chinese culture.There is also one point that I strongly support is that the distorted style of traveling in china,for example people travel with their cameras to show off at any time and they buy luxuries at no allowance which makes china become one of the crazy luxury fashion market in the world as a developing country.This perception of traveling is not a kind of way to relax yourselves but to satisfy people’s vanity. Actually this event reminds me of the movie THE COVE, it is a documentary film that......

Dolphin Notes

...Dolphin notes Wikipedia (various) They have well-developed hearing − their hearing, which is adapted for both air and water, is so well developed that some can survive even if they are blind Dolphins feed largely on fish and squid, but a few, like the killer whale, feed on large mammals, like seals. Male dolphins typically mate with multiple females every year, but females only mate every two to three years. Calves are typically born in the spring and summer months and females bear all the responsibility for raising them. Mothers of some species fast and nurse their young for a relatively long period of time. Dolphins produce a variety of vocalizations, usually in the form of clicks and whistles. Dolphins are descendants of land-dwelling mammals of the artiodactyl order (even-toed ungulates) J.G. Williams The primitive cetaceans, or archaeocetes, first took to the sea approximately 49 million years ago and became fully aquatic by 5–10 million years later.[22] WIKIPEDIA channeled vibrations from the jaw to the earbone which occurred with Ambulocetus 49 million years ago, a streamlining of the body and the growth of flukes on the tail which occurred around 43 million years ago with Protocetus, the migration of the nasal openings toward the top of the cranium and the modification of the forelimbs into flippers which occurred with Basilosaurus 35 million years ago, and the shrinking and eventual......

Island of Splendor

...Island of Splendor The sun sets slowly across the water, as the horizon closes with red and yellow skies. Waves crash against the cliff of Black Rock for a never ending time. You hear the tropical birds sing their night time melody while crickets play their solos to spice up the evening. Fishing boats are tied to broken docks as dolphins play in the crystal clear water. Another day has washed forever away but another night sets touching the sandy shores of the Island of Maui. A place filled with fun, luxury, and excitement, Maui would be considered a tropical paradise to many people. While gazing out among the vast ocean ahead, the sparkly, bright blue water of the new day appears to be never ending. The open water’s foamy fingers cradle the other islands as speed boats and sail boats jump the waves, passing the misty puffs of air emitted from the whales swimming by. On the shore, the fresh, salty air sweeps past your face, as if a fan was turned on and off repeatedly right next to you. A mix of coconut and seaweed permeate the air, giving it a sense of figure, so strong it can almost be eaten. The cool, crisp air perfectly carries the sound of the crashing waves, as the tide carries them in and out. From the bird’s perspective, people laughing and gentle music on the boardwalk provide a comfortable home. The cool water and warm sands offer a nice break from the humid day, brings relaxation to anybody who enters this paradise. In addition to the ocean, the vibrant......
