Keiko experienced ALOT of heartbreak and rejection before he died. His human family pushed hime out. The whale Pods he approached treated him like we would treat a homeless man that would want to come home and live with us. They would vocalize politely and quickly swim away. Keiko would have loved to return to Marineland, but it was too-late, the Blackfishers and their insane Free Willy mentality sentenced him to death. Sea World mgmt. clearly cannot or will not tell this story....maybe they're afraid some kook will say "Let's try again" which would be the definition of insanity.
Dolphin Pods are much more wide-open and welcoming to outsiders, not like the Orca Pods at all.
Google the Free Keiko (Willy) effort and enlighten yourself on how that effort went. The Foundation set-up for Keiko's reintroduction to the wild pulled out all the stops and made every imaginable effort to see Keiko free and happy. In the end, he died miserable and heartbroken. What do you propose be done with the Sea World whales?, Like all the rest you're big on what should be done and small and what CAN be done. Sea World will eventually sell the whales to 3rd world Marine parks because of political correctness and they'll be abused and miserable under their new masters. You can then congratulate yourself on kicking them out of the United States.
10's of millions were spent reintroducing Keiko to the wild. After 2 lonely and solitary years, he gave up on life and let himself die. He interacted with Killer Whale Pods, but there was no place for him there....something researchers learned decisively. The Sea World whales cannot be introduced into any existing Pod EVER. If released, they will die lonely and miserable. Keiko clearly would've been better off at the Marine Park where she was "rescued". Those involved in the Free Keiko (Willy) effort classify it as a disaster.
Not at all, you've turned your dog into a slave in exchange for his IAMS and his trips to the Vet. In exchange, he provides you with love and companionship. Yes, you're not training him to do tricks in a show for profit, but you do get emotional payback from your pet. And you sleep well at night knowing your home is the best place for your pet. He was bred to be owned by humans....right?
Since all the Orcas, with the exception of the two oldest, were bred in activity....they are essentially no different than the pet you have in your home. Your dog would probably be pretty jazzed to run wild and free, but you keep him on the leash and choke the heck out of him when he pulls too hard. We are a very hypocritical society.
When people die, China Life simply doesn't pay them because they're dead anyway and their beneficiaries have "no power". Screw over the little people, isn't that the motto of the Communist Party?
The Chinese government just cut-off the hand they needed to fight this dragon.....and the contagion is spreading...the commodities that the Chinese have been buying for years are being ravaged. It's great to be living in the USA right now. Everyone is piling into the dollar like there's no tomorrow because for the Yuan or the Euro, there may not be a tomorrow......
Just like the new Hooli CEO on HBO's Silicon Valley show.....I like your reference. It's amazing how the Yahoo message board history parallels Twitter. Remember how active these boards used to be and then nobody cared. Yahoo shut down most boards to save on costs, leaving just a few of the most popular ones. Twitter is in deep trouble.
They have zero plans on attending any meetings with Tsipras. And if LaGarde tries to move behind their backs, they may consider leaving the Eurozone themselves.
Editing video is quite a chore, even for a billionaire like him. Analysts said just getting the video off the GoPro's was rough, followed by the editing....making the whole experience awful. These issues need to be addressed. We don't need to see anymore Kayakers.....nobody cares about content.
But NO, China is where the growth is....hahhahaha
almost nothing...it's negligible....The Japanese banks are fairing FAR WORSE. Their CEO's have always been asleep at the wheel. They probably won't even write the loans down unless the Japanese govt forces them too.
Must the media bombard me with news of their brokeness?
He took a tired, old concept....the VideoCamera. Juiced it up, rebranded it and made it all exciting and sexy. Then sold it to the masses like it was Caviar......
Don't buy into it, brother.....the Greeks are being terrorized by Tsipras into voting FOR austerity to get things running again. It's kind of like turning off the water and then asking people to vote for turning it back on provided you approve a bunch of opaque austerity measures that won't kick in for years. Greeks will vote overwhelmingly to approve whatever measure is put before them.
Dig your old video camera out of your sock drawer and dust it off, save yourself some money.
I jumped into their head for a minute, they really like doing their work and performing for us. It's the waiting around between shows that #$%$ them off. They would be happy entertaining the crowd continuously....let the crowd see the trainers do their behavior training...or are their training sessions Top Secret or something?
They're "premiering" Snowpiercer this weekend. Saw that movie on Netflix OVER A MONTH ago. Last night I saw Nightcrawler with Jake Gyllenahall once again on Netflix. Has HBO given so much of their money to idiot producers like Bill Maher and John Oliver that they can't spend-it when they need to. Sounds like a losing attitude to me. Vice puts me right to sleep and John Oliver is British and should be immediately deported.
