As a kid you always saw sow bugs in damp and dark areas. According to Melville H. Hatch’s, Records of Terrestrial Isopoda or Sow Bugs from North America, where they researched different sow bugs and stated that the sow bugs are not limited to the sea shore, but they are still sound in wet, dark environments. (Hatch, 1939) Also, in Pill Bugs Up Close, living in damp, dark places keeps the Sow Bugs from drying out. Showing why most of them prefer dark, wet places. Sow bugs also prefer dark, damp, covered places because it keeps them hidden from most of their enemies, according to Pill Bug Biology: A Spider’s Spinach, But a Biologist’s Delight.
Shown in doc. 2, Prince Ranjitsinhji of India was invited to play on the British Sussex team. It is often seen that the British have certain standards for a cricket player, but this shows they recognize the young player through his skills, not his background or caste. However, because it was published by the British, this paper could have been used as a source of propaganda. Well quoted in doc.
I could see the seams of the ball rotate as the ball rifled toward the batter as he began to swing--already too late. Mr. Newton, and Mr. Nash were tops on the long list of people I needed to thank. Which got me wondering whether it would be a good idea for baseball major leagues to recruit consultants who are not only well versed in physics, but also in game theory? It could become a new career option for kids like me to pursue. And who knows, maybe one day, after college, I will be sitting on the sidelines helping someone like Derek Jeter better his game.
Squirrel Foraging Behavior Fu-Sheng Hsieh Psych 330 University of Washington Abstract The submission studied the foraging behaviors of gray squirrels (Sciurus carolinensis) when in a competitive environment in which humans watch. We carried out the study in order to understand why gray squirrels would rather eat food at a baited area instead of saving it for other seasons. This research will incorporate observation as the major research method while it uses a quantitative approach for the design. The expected results include the ability of the gray squirrels to eat unshelled peanuts at the baited area. Secondly, we expect the gray squirrels to eat calmly in an environment that is far from the humans.
. The increased human activity at the US/Mexico border which includes vehicle patrols, military and police actions, illegal immigration, and artificial lighting are destroying the fragile ecosystem that the Jaguarundi need in order to survive and thrive. The “Border Wall” separating the two countries restricts its ability to move and communicating during mating season. Another danger the Jaguarundi encounters, especially in the south, are hunters who value Jaguarundi furs. There is no formidable force working for the preservation of the Jaguarundi, the fact that the exact population for this big cat is unknown makes it difficult for conservation groups to petition the respective governments for assistance.
Furthermore, for an act of murder to take place, there has to be a motive. When evaluating the evidence it is noticed that Lindy Chamberlain had no motive to kill Azaria and there was lack of evidence presented. Many of the statements and observing from witnesses contained contrast and contradiction within the information, rendering the evidence as useless. In addition, it is observed that a majority of the evidence that would’ve assisted the defence’s case was rejected and ignored, giving an unfair advantage to the prosecution. Engineer Harris, who had conducted dingo research, had cited an example of a captive female dingo removing a bundle of meat from its wrapping paper and leaving the paper intact.
Meadow Jumping Mouse (Zapus hudsonius) Abstract This project revolved around a preliminary study of the Meadow Jumping Mouse, Zapus hudsonius. To start, literature research was obtained. The literature research provided coloration and size length that was helpful in identifying the mouse in the wild. Once basic information was gathered, trappings were done to confirm the literature. Two different trapping occasions occurred, with only one being successful.
Should people be able to have exotic pets like Chimpanzees or Tigers? Some people say that having an exotic pet helps them to learn more about wild animals, and they do not have to be dangerous, and people would get bored with regular pets then exotic animals. Others think that people should not keep exotic animals, because they are too dangerous even if people trained them. People can control the animals when the animal is a new born, for example, a trainer can train a baby tiger, but the baby tiger will not get used to it until it grows up. The wild animals will always be wild even though people raised them or kept them in their house.
Helen Szazy Mr. Stettes English 101 April 24th, 2009 The TNR project Stray and feral cats are a serious problem in the United States. They can be found wherever there is a good food source for them, such as alleys and abandoned buildings. The TNR project was created because past methods of trying to solve this problem were not very successful. TNR stands for trap-neuter-release. The cats are humanly trapped, then taken to the veterinarians, or wherever the event is taking place.
(killerwhale.org) Furthermore, they have concluded that any scientific study of orcas would be best done in their natural habitat verse aquariums. Multiple factors would affect their behaviors and many concerns have been brought to peoples attention about the effects orcas face by leaving the wild. One concern for orcas that are born in the wild then taken into captivity is that they live in pods, and their families operate much as if a human family would, with strong attachments and emotions. Tearing these creatures away from their family members has much to do with the psychological effect on them. Several incidents have been reported over the past years that make people question the continued captivity of orcas.
