Stop the Dolphin Slaughter in Taiji, Japan

Stop the Dolphin Slaughter in Taiji, Japan

  • signatures: 63,540
  • signature goal: 100,000
The World Association for Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) is the world's largest network of zoos and aquariums around the world. Some members of the international aquarium and zoo industry are strongly connected to the Japanese dolphin slaughter, in that they pay top dollar for dolphins deemed suitable for commercial exploitation in dolphin shows and captive dolphin swim programs. In Taiji, live bottlenose dolphins have been sold for as much as $154,000. The dolphin massacres in Japan will continue for as long as members of the international dolphin display industry reward the fishermen with thousands of dollars for animals that are deemed suitable for commercial exploitation in captivity.

Send WAZA a letter urging them to enforce their Code of Ethics and expel the Japanese Association of Zoos and Aquariums (JAZA) from their organization. Furthermore, WAZA must expel all other facilities that have purchased dolphins from the dolphin drive hunts.

It struck as very casual, almost converstional, which I don't have a problem with in general. I guess I just don't think he'd be a very good conversationalists. Lol. And yeah, the bad reading is a big hinderance to enjoying a book.

 

I could not get though as many books as I do without listening to audiobooks. I just don't have enough time to sit still and read, and with audio I can listen in the car, while doing dishes or ironing, or even while I'm at work if what I'm doing isn't too thought intensive. But yeah, it's easy to get distracted, and it's much easier to listen to fiction than non-ficiton, because you can follow action and conversation with much less effort than you can when someone is trying to use facts or make a specific point.

 

Still, I have to listen to books or else I'd never get any "reading" done. I have Hedge's The Death of the Liberal Class, and Harris's The Moral Landscape on CD coming in from the library. I'm also listening to Arguably: Essays by Christopher Hitchens right now as well, which is mostly a collection of book reviews (so far). This is where I ran across the "Political Animals" article I posted last week.

Foer has a peculiar writing style, sometimes he writes on purpose like as if he was a kid. But I don't mind his writing, it's his own little style. Maybe the narrator totally spoiled it. I never heard a book, I only read books, mainly out of habit but also because I'm not a very good "listener", I get distracted. when I read, I'm in full control, and I'm a bit of a control freak :-) (not control of others, but of my own time and self). 

Comment by A Former Member on December 13, 2011 at 1:21pm

This week I tried listening to Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer, and I hated it. I didn't even finish the first CD. I think he writes like a 13 year-old, and his word play is sophomoric. And it didn't help that the narrator was just awful, too. He made the mistake of "reading" the book to you, instead of telling you the story.

This is Farm Sanctuary’s new rescued piglet, Eric. I can’t. ERIC IS A PIG HUGGING ANOTHER PIG. I am giving Farm Sanctuary everything I have. This is why I’m vegan. This pig is so spiritually rich, I love him so much. I can’t even form sentences right now.

Israel Bans Cat Declawing. Punishment: One Year In Prison, $20K

On November 28th Israel’s legislature unanimously passed a bill that outlaws the declawing of cats, except for certain medical reasons, making it a crime punishable by up to one year in prison and a fine of about $20,000 (or 75,000 shekels).

Declawing is a somewhat misleading term; in the procedure, called an  onychectomy, the veterinarian typically removes all or most of the cat’s outer toe joint, bone and all. As declawing opponents have often pointed out, the human equivalent would be the amputation of your fingertips at or just above your third knuckle. Cats also use their toes/nails to walk upon; the Israel bill says the ban will help cats move around more normally, avoid certain medical complications, and defend themselves.
