Orcas should not be captive. Orcas cannot live in the conditions presented in places like Seaworld. Orcas in the wild do not have much interaction with orcas outside of their group, meaning there is plenty of space for them. However, in Seaworld, orcas are forced together into small spaces, meaning there is increased risk of injury and "raking" (one orca running their teeth against the skin of another to cause injury). Also, orcas aren't treated well in captivity. They are forced to do tricks in order to get their food, are separated from their young, are inbred, and numerous other ethical concerns. Human entertainment should not take precedence over the comfortable lives of these animals. Us humans have freedom and rights. Why don't orcas? We are all animals, and because we have rights,

In the 18th century, new technologies allowed Britain to produce more agriculture than ever before. Other advances, like more efficient rotating of crops, helped spur production. A greater percentage of land was also used for production. In 1700, about 20 percent of England's arable land was fallow, but this fell to just 4 percent by 1871. Cereal yields were also increased by the discovery of nitrogen, which was a critical fertilizer. All of this production fueled a growing population, with England's rising from 5. 7 million in 1750 to 16. 6 million a century later. Many people moved to cities, fueled urbanization and contributed needed labor for the Industrial Revolution. Extracts from this document. Why was Britain the First Industrial Nation? From 1780 for just over a century Britain
By no stretch is it rare for your gums to hurt during and after flossing. Even some bleeding is to be expected. This is especially true if you have not flossed in a long time. However, if your gums do indeed hurt when you floss, and unbearably so, there are some things you can do. Be Gentle Perhaps the most obvious way to combat gum soreness and bleeding is to be gentle. One of the most common occurrences of these gum problems is over-aggressive flossing. In other words, if you are too rough on your gums while flossing, either because you are out of practice or because you are in a hurry, soreness and hurting is to be expected.

The hormones of the pituitary gland help regulate the functions of other endocrine glands. The pituitary gland has two partsБthe anterior lobe and posterior lobeБthat have two very separate functions. The hypothalamus sends signals to the pituitary to release or inhibit pituitary hormone production. Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH): ACTH stimulates the adrenal glands to produce hormones. Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH): FSH works with LH to ensure normal functioning of the ovaries and testes. Growth hormone (GH): GH is essential in early years to maintaining a healthy body composition and for growth in children. ...

Pet owners understandably become concerned when they think that their beloved companion is not eating enough. When I m presented with a case like this, the first thing I do is try to determine if a problem truly exists. Sometimes owners mistake picky eating for not eating. As long as the pet is not too thin and is maintaining his or her weight, then caloric intake is fine. Conversely, if the pet is underweight or has been losing weight, we do have a problem. The challenge is to find out why the dog is not eating enough. So Why Won t My Dog Eat? There are a few reasons that may explain why your dog won t eat, and they can be categorized as problems with food or medical problems. A few questions will usually identify or rule out a problem with the food itself. If the owner purchases 40
