The Mountain Lion is a mammal of the family, Felidae and it is also native to the Americas. The mountain lion’s life cycle is consisted of three remarkable stages of kit, adolescence, and adulthood. The first part of a mountain lion’s life is its kit phase. The female mountain lion will usually give birth to an average of two to three young, called kittens in a very secluded place where there is little to no interaction with other dangerous animals. Newly born kittens are about one foot long, weigh one pound with blackish-brown spots around their body (“Living with Wildlife in Lion Country”).
She says how Plotnik had to sit and watch them anywhere from 30-180 minutes everyday for 1-2 weeks every month to see how elephants react with each other while one is in distress. Their reason for having to sit out and watch them is because they could not make the elephants be in distress just for an experiment because that would be unethical. Because researchers had to rely on well-documented but anecdotal observations for the study, the test taken were not completely reliable. Plotnik watched two elephants, Jokia and Mae Perm, while Mae rushes to the side of Jokia when she is stressed. As a sign of being in distress, Jokia let out a loud roar and to reassure her, Mae Perm let out chirping noises that made Jokia feel better.
A stuffed animal, a chimp named Jubilee. Valerie Jane Morris-Goodall was born on April 3rd 1934 in London, England. While living on a farm at age 4 along with her mother, father and sister, she hid for hours in a hen house to see how hens lay eggs while her worried family called the police to report her missing. This sparked her fascination with animal behavior in which she
These scent posts are meant to inform others of a cat's home range. House cats employ a vocal repertoire that extends from a purr to a screech. Domestic cats remain largely carnivorous, and have evolved a simple gut appropriate for raw meat. They also retain the rough tongue that can help them clean every last morsel from an animal bone (and groom themselves). Their diets vary with the whims of humans, however, and can be supplemented by the cat's own hunting successes.
Knowing Tom has a violent temper which was previously seen when he lashes out at Myrtle the reader therefore fears trouble. After Tom’s exposure of Gatsby as a bootlegger and a numbers racketeer, Gatsby’s sinister criminal activities prove to be the cause of Daisy’s ‘lost voice’ and, Gatsby’s loss of Daisy herself. The second narrator, Michaelis, along with the police officer, tells the reader of the events surrounding Myrtle’s death. This use of a stranger to narrate the story is a change in style, as Fitzgerald usually either uses Nick as the narrator or has other characters relate matters to him, which he subsequently retells. In this case, Nick does not speak with Michaelis, nor indeed know what Michaelis knows, until the inquest.
The title left me in pure suspense what do hills have to do with elephants or white elephants for that matter. After selecting the story I read, read and reread the story multiple times until I could almost recite it off of the pages. In this essay the highlights of the story will be brought to life and also some of my favorite pieces, moments, and situations. The story begins by describing in very much detail Spain and its surroundings; Luscious trees, bright green grass, a majestic blue valley, a yellow sunny sky that you cannot witness a cloud in for miles to come it is a perfect scenery for a cozy train station surrounding. It is hot, humid and the American and his girl “Jig” are at the train station waiting for a train to Madrid.
After a brief and passionate love affair with a woman named Lana, two jealous male acquaintances discover Brandon is anatomically female, and brutally rape and kill him for this “unnatural” behaviour (Pierce 1999). His brave performance of masculinity and his ability to remain faithful to his true identity contradicts Western society’s explicit gender norms. Although Western society equates sex to gender, through this intense rendition of Brandon’s life, viewers come to realize that gender is socially constructed, informed by cultural practice that is highly variable and far from universal (Brzuzy et al. 2012: 407). There is a deeper, more complex understanding of gender that can be recognized through the existence of supernumerary or third gendered individuals who transgress the gender binary and do not identify with the sex they were assigned at birth (Eyre and Pollack 2011: 212).
Roo in “The Summer of The Seventeenth Doll.”) Fitzgerald makes it very clear to us that Tom is “A hulking man” by how the other characters in the book refer to him. One could note that Daisy Buchanan (Tom’s wife) several times claims Tom to be “A hulk”, “A brute”, etc. Tom is also shown by Fitzgerald to be a very abusive, short tempered man. Some undeniable evidence of this is when he backhands Myrtle Wilson (his mistress) across the face, breaking her nose in the process. Fitzgerald also reveals bruises on
Brandon is a secretive man – bounded as such by the shame that haunts him – feeling volatile for the first time in his life. Or is it the first time? Shame’s obscurity is the thing that people are going to be most challenged by. Not that that’s wholly bad — people love to be given an incomplete picture and told to imagine the rest of it, especially when the film being watched is as fundamentally and artistically interesting as this film is, or the performance on-screen as endlessly fascinating as Fassbender’s Brandon. Shame is about sex addiction and tells the story of one man’s internal battle where virtuosity and goodness are at war with the despotic darkness which controls and always has controlled him.
At age fourteen, Amy received her only formal training in composition with Junius W. Hill, with whom she studied harmony and counterpoint for a year. Other than this year of training, Amy was self-taught. She regularly composed away from the piano, even without pencil and paper; when she did write out her compositions, they usually had already been composed, and she merely took dictation from her inner hearing of the recalled work. Career She made her professional debut in Boston in 1883, at the age of 16. She became the first American concert pianist to succeed with local training.
