I love animals and everything, but I don’t think they have the mental capacity to plot an actual attack, or even get in such mass amounts like the birds did in the book. c. I think that the message is that people need to be more sensitive about the natural world. In the beginning, it seems like Nat is the only one concerned about the bird in terms of why they are behaving like so. The people who disregarded the birds and stayed outside ended up getting killed. This shows that we should pay more attention to the ways we are affecting nature.
The horsefly does that by swinging its tail to prevent the bugs from coming closer. The flapenguin gives the horsefly a shelter by letting it live on its body. The flapenguin doesn’t do it on purpose because the horsefly is too small for the flapenguin to see it. * If the horsefly were to become extinct, then the flapenguin would encounter more diseases. The horsefly is the one that keeps most of the disease carrying bugs off the flapenguin.
Provide one action we as humans engage in that leads to the extinction of each of these components. Action affecting Lichens = Lichens depend on air and water for nutrients which is affected by things such as air travel and exhaust fumes. Action affecting Trees = People cutting down trees for useable items is one main way that leads to extinction. Action affecting Flowers = People are clearing off land in order to plant crops and trees Action affecting Bees = There is intensive farming being done all around the world to keep up with the supply and demand of food. As a result this eliminate food that bees pollinate from.
Plant it too close to the surface, and a crow eats it. If a baby gets born before the due date it can still be undeveloped. Even if the seed manages to sprout, it can be killed just like all the bad things in the world can overwhelm a kid. Also Melinda understands that a seed needs to blossom to produce more seeds. In the book she tries and implies that to herself by speaking for herself more.
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.
Carson postulates: “Man can hardly recognize the devils of his own creation” (Carson 800), and thus is not honestly examining the long term effect of environmental change. In the excitement to control insects, chemical companies have caused small towns and farming communities to become guinea pigs for experiments involving pesticides. “The Flight of Rachel Carson” continues the theme of chemical effects upon birds of prey by opening with Geoffrey Norman’s observations concerning the disappearance of osprey, bald eagles, and brown pelicans. He develops an analogy of their plight to the life and struggle of Rachel Carson to stop the use of DDT. Just as the birds struggled against a hostile environment, Carson combated angry chemical industrialists and governmental agencies whose philosophies and purposes collided with her own.
Entry 2 I wish there was a better way of traveling instead of using a flock of wild birds…but I mean beggars can be choosers. Finally! I get to the first planet, asteroid 325? Yeah, I think that’s right. I was a little scared of what was on here at first but now I feel dumb that I was.
PREDICTION: If the experiment shows that the hummingbird is attracted to the different colors, scents or movements, then that would mean that my hypothesis was definitely a true statement and this would confirm my guess was correct. CONTROLLED EXPERIMENTAL METHOD: To start the experiment I went for a hike around the woods on different days wearing different material to properly observe the hummingbirds actions. Day 1: I walked near the hummingbirds wearing a red hat and noticed the birds were hovering again over the hat as if it was a sort of flower, due to the fact I was moving they quickly darted away. Day 2: I
Bassackwards The immigrants, especially Spanish immigrants would be the audience of the essay “Bassackwards”. Jay Nordlinger argues the aliens do not learn and speak English to adapt the new life in the United States. First, it seems to be a grammar essay of Spanish which might make the readers bored, “specialized language: casco for hard hat; montacarga for forklift; pistola de clavos for nail gun.” That is called “Survival Spanish” which people can learn easily. It would be great if many Spanish speakers studied English. Unfortunately, most of them keep their own traditional language and avoid express their feeling by using English.
She then states, “When butterflies renounce their drams, / I shall but drink the more!” (syllabus). The butterflies renounce the amount of alcohol they will take in and so Dickinson will drink more alcohol. This creates the illusion that she is drunk, but, she is not drunk off alcohol; she is drunk off nature. Also, Dickinson’s use of figurative language allows her readers to make the connection between her love for nature and her use of alcohol. She makes it seem like she is enjoying alcohol, but she is really enjoying nature.
