    The SeaWorld Orlando Aviculture Team recently welcomed two new additions to our family – a Caribbean flamingo and a tawny frogmouth chick. The flamingo chick hatched on August 16, weighing just a pound.  Although today it stands about 18 inches tall and weighs three pounds, when fully grown it will be five feet tall and double its weight. Its characteristic pink feathers start developing at three months, but the chick won’t gain its full color until it’s about three years old.  Flamingos’ bright pink feathers come from the carotenoid pigments they consume as…

  • Pollution linked to lethal sea turtle tumors

    30 Sep 2014 | 8:33 am
    Polluted urban and farm runoff in Hawaii has been linked to lethal tumors in endangered sea turtles. A new study finds that excess nitrogen in the runoff accumulates in algae that the turtles eat and can cause the disease Fibropapillomatosis which is the leading known cause of death in endangered green sea turtles. The disease causes the formation of tumors on the animals' eyes, flippers, and internal organs.

The authors recommend the formulation of special conservation plans to guarantee its survival.

    30 Sep 2014 | 5:15 pm
    When Leaves Die Why, I wonder, is it that leaves become more beautiful when they die? The rest of us living things do not, or is it just me? Leaves die a defiant death, a spectacular goodbye, we have never been more radiant, they croon, so full of life. is there any living thing that ages so gracefully, and dies so well? Well, they whisper, we are here to say that death is part of life, one is as beautiful as the other, the simplest and most common living things on the surface of the earth, we die better than any other thing. Or is it just me?, and is death sometimes the most beautiful and…

Orson entered my life to awaken me and bring me to Bedlam Farm to begin my hero journey, he left when his work was done. Rose entered my life to give me the strength to come to this farm and survive there, to learn what I had to learn in a strange and disconnected environment.

  • Soiled Justice

    Susan Cosier
    30 Sep 2014 | 12:29 pm
    By Susan Cosier Three years ago a court in Ecuador ruled that the oil giant Chevron bore responsibility for four decades of pollution that destroyed the homes and livelihoods of thousands of indigenous farmers. The company was on the hook for $19 billion—the largest court award ever for environmental damages. Unfortunately, the farmers’ struggle for justice didn’t end there. Chevron refuses to pay up, and in his new book Law of the Jungle, best-selling author Paul M. Barrett tells the story of Steven Donziger, the lawyer who pursued the case against the oil company. Donziger’s…
  • Greenland Is the New Black

    Susan Cosier
    30 Sep 2014 | 5:19 am
    By Susan Cosier Greenland has never been green, but its massive glaciers aren’t white anymore, either. The icy island is turning black with soot (possibly the combination of increased wildfires in the Arctic, dust, microbes, and fewer winter snowstorms to refresh the whiteness). Glaciologist Jason Box took these these photos over the summer during his crowd-funded scientific expedition, Dark Snow. The besmirched ice isn’t just unsightly. The darker the snow, the more sunlight it absorbs, and the faster it melts. And that brings higher seas. If the entire Greenland ice sheet melted, sea…

    By Brian Palmer The most polluted communities in the country are more likely to be home to people of color. That’s been true for decades, despite many efforts (albeit ineffective ones) to change it. Now the Environmental Protection Agency is trying again, with a proposed rule that would require oil refineries—many of which border poor and largely minority neighborhoods—to measure some forms of pollution along their boundaries and upgrade their facilities.It’s a step in the right direction. But when viewed through the lens of history, it seems long overdue and rather feeble. Consider…

  • Antarctica Is Doing Its Best Sandra Bullock Impression

    Susan Cosier
    29 Sep 2014 | 5:31 am
    By Susan Cosier Melting on the Antarctic Ice Sheet is weakening the region’s gravitational pull. OMG! Are penguins floating into the heavens? Um, no. The changes are slight, but they're still significant enough for the European Space Agency to detect with its most “accurate gravity model ever.” Earth’s gravitational pull can vary due to the planet’s rotation and changes in land mass, such as mountains or ocean trenches. Between 2009 and 2012, as the ice sheet lost much of its mass into the sea (depicted above by the growing blue and reddish areas), that section of Antarctica also…

  • Coral's best defender against an army of sea stars: Crabs

    30 Sep 2014 | 6:06 am
    Coral reefs face a suite of perilous threats in today's ocean. From overfishing and pollution to coastal development and climate change, fragile coral ecosystems are disappearing at unprecedented rates. Despite this trend, some species of corals surrounding the island of Moorea in French Polynesia have a natural protector in their tropical environment: coral guard-crabs. New research has helped unravel the complex symbiotic relationship between these crabs and the coral reefs they live in and defend.
  • Biodiversity does not always improve resistance of forest ecosystems to drought

    30 Sep 2014 | 6:04 am
    The resistance of forests to drought has been studied, with a focus on the diversity of tree species. This study shows that mixed species forests are more resistant to drought stress than monocultures in some regions only: tree diversity may afford resistance to drought stress only in drought-prone areas, i.e. in regions where the frequency and severity of drought during the growing season is high.

    Climate change is expected to result in heightened risk of extinction for many species. Many conservation scientists have concluded that current risk assessment protocols will fail to identify many species at risk from climate change. However, an international team of researchers counter that current assessment methods are able to identify such species.

  • Scottish referendum: Will teens freeze their grandparents pensions

    The CBC poses an interesting question this morning: Scotland referendum: Will slacktivists help secession succeed?  As is noted, the voting age in the Scottish independence referendum is 16 years and up.  Apparently slacktivists is the name for those between 16 and 18 years of age. It is believed that these younger voters may well be more inclined to vote Yes on the separation question.  If that choice win, then it is likely that senior pensions would be frozen as occurs in many other countries in the Commonwealth.  It would seem to be a supreme irony that the grandchildren would be…

    courtesy of vectorolie via freedigitalphotos.net With the referendum in Scotland on separating from the United Kingdom occurring tomorrow, there is much discussion on a whole series of financial matters.  It seems that there is an intention that pensions as in the past would continue to be paid by the government in London.  However that raises a very interesting question.

However there are a lot of people out there who have found joy, love, and even cuddles through adopting large mollusks as pets. Believe it or not the gentle vegetarians actually like to be held and pet much like dogs and cats -- it just seems a little creepier.

It has been a mystery to scientists and researchers for years as to how they know just when to make the change. Now it appears that an area on the crown of their heads may be the key.

    Labradors are popular breeds well known for being great with all the family. But like all breeds, they have their vulnerabilities. Knowing the health risks that affect your Labrador can make early detection and prevention easier, and keep him healthier for longer. Here are some common Labrador Health Issues: Hip Dysplasia Many large breeds are prone to an inherited disease called Hip Dysplasia, and Labradors are certainly no exception.  This disease causes abnormal formation of the hip joint, resulting in instability and arthritis.

Here are just a select few of the best family dogs: Bulldog Bulldogs are a hardy breed able to take anything rough and tumble kids have to throw at them. Couple this with not being the most energetic dog breed and you’ve got a very patient dog great for the whole family.

Increasing Portion Size Begin increasing your bitches intake of food from around the 6 week mark of the pregnancy. It is recommend that a higher energy density food be slowly introduced into her diet so that large volumes of a less calorific product are not used to meet her increased demand for more nutrients. Food Allergies If your bitch is fed a special diet due to food allergies, dietary intolerance or a…

If you are running into difficulties training your dog and despair of ever being able to get them to respond and learn new skills, you may need to look at your training protocols and think about making some changes. Every dog is different and so will respond differently. Here are some of the common training problems you might be experiencing plus some suggestions on how to solve them.

He wanted to do this because he felt I was well known on the forums. Anyone who knows me well knows that I am highly against LEDs. Anyone that I have seen put these things above their tank, I have pretty much watched their coral die off and then I watch them switch back to T5’s or halide’s shortly afterwards. However, I…

  • Great Egret, Bathing Beauty

    Lauren Shaffer
    29 Sep 2014 | 6:41 pm
    All birds bathe in order to maintain their plumage, but when a Great Egret takes a bath, it makes a big splash!  While kayaking this week at Montour Preserve, I noticed a Great Egret at the far end of the lake.  Keeping the sun behind me, I paddled up to a respectable distance from the bird and let the boat slowly drift towards the shore.  He deftly plucked one small fish after another from the shallows, and after downing at least 8 fish, he began to bathe. Down went his head and up went the waves of water! Vigorously he submerged himself and raised his wings till the water rolled off his…
  • Olive-sided Flycatcher

    The Olive-sided Flycatcher is a very conspicuous bird when it makes its appearance during migration, choosing the top of a snag, or in this case, a telephone pole wire on which to perch.  Except for the Great Crested Flycatcher it’s the largest flycatcher in our region, and is identified by its dark vest, white throat, large thick bill, and sometimes-visible white spots on either side of the rump. These white tufts stood out to me as I slowly drove down the road looking for warblers.  There is only one bird like that!  I quickly pulled over and watched it catch its breakfast for…

    Great Egrets are huge, elegant birds that frequent wetlands and shores of the river and lakes in summer.  They are not often seen in our area of North Central PA, but one was visiting a friend’s wetlands and I was able to put in with the kayak and get close shots of this awesome bird!  Like other herons and egrets, they will watch for fish or frogs in the water and like lightning, spear them through or grab them with their dagger-like beak. This Great Egret may look silly way up high on top of the tree where he is perched, but actually, Great Egrets will nest as high as 100 feet up in…
  • The Garden Spider and the Monarch Butterfly

    Lauren Shaffer

    Garden Spiders are impressive with their large size, and bright markings.  They belong to the orb weaver family, and are known to build webs as wide as several feet, only to take them down and rebuild again the next day. They will spin a heavy zig-zag in the middle of the web.  For whatever reason this is done, it gives warning to any bird flying by to stay clear and prevents damage to the web. I remember as kids, going out to the field with our jars, to catch the huge yellow and black Garden Spiders we found in the weeds.  We would throw grasshoppers into their webs and watch them run up…

    Is it clear who gets the pet in a divorce in your relationship? Most people have never thought of this.

If you have ever argued in front of your pet then you probably know that your dog or cat will display actions that tell you they too feel the stress of the argument.
