There has been an unprecedented number in the death of bald eagles in Utah the months of November and December. It has happened near the Great Salt Lake area where thousands of eared grebes migrate. Although the migration of eared grebes is a common for the area, the numbers of bald eagles killed is not. It is believed that the West Nile virus is to be the blame for the resent deaths in bald eagles, however other test are being performed.
Bird deaths that are tied to the West Nile virus usually occur in the warm months when mosquitoes are more active, which is the primary vector. However the extended period of warmer months that Utah has experienced this year gave the mosquitoes a long breading time. Scientist are not capable of proving if the eared grebes came into Utah infected with the West Nile virus or if they were infected when they migrated to Utah. All that has been confirmed is that the recent deaths of the bald eagles have been due to the West Nile virus. According to global animal the West Nile virus is responsible for at least twenty-seven bald eagle deaths and five contaminated eagles. It is thought that the bald eagles contacted the virus by feeding on the carcasses of the bird known as the eared grebe. According to global animal nearly twenty thousand of eared grebes have died since November outside the Salt Lake City, making it the biggest outbreak North America has seen thus far. Seeing as bald eagles are scavenger birds they would have more than likely feed on the eared grebes within days of them dyeing and that is how the virus was transferred to the bald eagles.

Earth – on the Verge of Getting Bald

...It is very evident in our generation that out Mother Nature continues to be destroyed as it shows us the effects of what negligence we are doing to her. But did you know, that even on 1990, there are group of minors who showed their care for our nature by filing a petition case despite the fact that they will go against the secretary of DENR that time? Now, after 22 years, I’ll be representing this generation, to show and tell you that abusing the privilege to cut-off trees and illegal logging are the top reasons why our Mother Nature suffers in many ways. The destructions of our Mother Earth manifest in the changes that we see in our: water, land, and natural phenomenon. In the bodies of water, it caused water shortages resulting from drying up of the water table, otherwise known as the “aquifer”, as well as of rivers, brooks and streams. It also caused salinization of the water table as a result of the disturbance therein of salt water. The siltation of rivers and seabeds, and consequential destruction of corals and other aquatic lead to a critical reduction in marine resource productivity are also visible damages in our bodies of water. And lastly, the siltation and shortening of the life span of multi-billion peso dams constructed and operated for the purpose of supplying water for domestic uses, irrigation and the generation of electric power. Aside from our bodies of water, environmental tragedies also effect in our landforms and habitats. One of its results is......

Miller High-Life Vintage Ad

...HELP MILLER HIGH-LIFE SAVE AMERICA’S EAGLES (1986) English 112 – Composition Due 7/23/12 What do Freedom, Liberty and Independence mean to Americans? That’s all the bald eagle represents for the United States, as it was accepted as the National Bird in 1782. In 1986, Miller High-Life used the bald eagle in an ad; an ad that displays an eagle soaring through the sky freely. There’s an article on the ad stating, “Our national symbol faces extinction and to look for Miller High-Life products at our favorite retail store during the Fourth of July holiday and find out to help Miller keep our magnificent eagles soaring forever.” Miller High-Life products also stand over their slogan which reads “Made the American Way”. With patriotism in mind, the ad uses Ethos, Pathos and Logos to reach out to the American public and together they can save the eagles. The author clearly displays ethos in the ad “Help Miller High-Life Save America’s Eagles” by the authority eagles have in the sky. Being that eagles really don’t have any predators other than man, we can save their species by coming together. Credibility is displayed in the ad because the bald eagle represents the United States as the national symbol. Using the products slogan “Made the American Way” and “Our National Symbol Faces Extinction” emphasizes the authority and credibility America portrays. Pathos is clearly displayed by informing the American public that the national symbol faces extinction. Hoping to......

On Denoting the Use

...CHUA, John Moses A. | PHLO 195 – T | Philosophy of Language | UPLB On Denoting the Use ‘The King of France is bald.’ This proposition had been very famous and a very good example for describing theories if we are to discern on how we can or should recognize if a proposition consisting a non-existent subject be true or false, or how meaningful these kinds may be. This paper should aim to defend Russell’s On Denotation and Descriptions against Strawson’s On Referring. This should go through on how Strawson may have failed to prove that Russell’s theory of denoting and theory of descriptions is incorrect and hence should be abandoned. But first, what is Russell’s theory of descriptions? In this theory, the instance that a concept is used in a proposition as such it would have description was classified into two types; the definite and the indefinite descriptions. Definite descriptions are concepts used in a proposition that has certain meaning or certain denotation as it was used in the sentence. One example would be: The shape square has four sides. Here, the square is regarded as belonging to the set shape and thus it is definite that the square that is a shape has four sides–for it really is. Though, tapping much into definite descriptions will not be of any use because what became controversial, at least for Strawson, was Russell’s recognizing of the indefinite descriptions. So what are these indefinite descriptions? This kind of description has......

Uv Radiation Paper

...My name I am currently a college student going into the field of nursing. An issue that has inspired my career goals has been breast cancer disease. Breast cancer disease is a disease fought by many women, and my mom who is my hero is one of the many victims. Before my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer I was so ignorant about the topic. I would hear the word and jus like many other people think about “oh yeah cancer makes u bald” “cancer kills you”, when in reality the treatment to cancer is what makes u bald like chemotherapy. When my mom was diagnosed it was very devastating for my family and I but I learn that I had to show a smile in front of my mom and to fulfill her with positive words so she would not give up. By being able to help my mom and to encourage her everyday to get ready and go to treatment definitely inspired me to want to help others going through the same thing, make them see the positive side to the worst thing happening in their life, make them know that not everything is bad or lost because they have cancer or any other kind of disease. The area of field that I would like to specialize in is in the oncology field. The oncology field helps patients who have or are at risk for cancer. They administer health care, and educate, counsel people about screening, prevention, and detection. The oncology field is such an interesting field that I would really enjoy working with. This discipline is so important to me because like I mention before some......

American Bald Eagle

...leucophelaus, commonly known as the American Bald Eagle, is the only eagle that is indigenous to North America. This majestic bird of prey, the emblem of our county, was once on the brink of extinction despite its lack of natural predators. The bald eagle is one of the few species that has been removed from the Endangered Species list due to successful recovery efforts. Within the temperate deciduous forest of United States, the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge is home to the largest population of breeding bald eagles north of Florida (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service , n.d.). Identification Despite the distinct markings of the mature bald eagle, identification between male and female can be difficult. Immature bald eagles can be even more difficult to identify as they do not have the distinct white head that the adult eagles do. Another factor that can make identification of young eagles challenging in the area of observation is the similarities to the Golden Eagle that, while not as prevalent, also reside in the biome. (Clark, 1983). Mature Adults Mature adult bald eagles have distinct white plumage on their head and tail. The bill, legs and feet are bright yellow while the body and wings are dark brown. Female bald eagles are larger than males, with wider wingspans of 6 ½ to 7 feet versus 6 to 6 ½ feet in males and weigh 10-14 pounds versus 8-10 pounds in males. (Seattle Audubon Society, n.d.). Immature Bald Eagles Immature bald eagles plumage are......

Mona Lisa

...even where she is looking. Her calm hands seem to show she is at ease, yet her eyes have many different interpretations to many different people. Some people think she is comfortable and happy, while others think she is sort of sad or in pain about something. There are hundreds interpretations about the Mona Lisa. The only change that the advertiser made to the classic painting of the Mona Lisa is he or she took away her hair. Everything else about her including her dress, hands, posture, even the background is all kept the exact same as the original. Nothing at all had changed except for the fact that she is now bald due to cancer, which is the message the advertiser is trying to get through to the viewers of the advertisement. The advertiser is selling the concept of the cancer treatment in the patient’s home by showing an iconic woman, Mona Lisa, being bald because of cancer but nothing else has changed about her at all. I think the advertiser did a great job with this advertisement because it really shows that your life can go on as normal and you can still be a beautiful woman or man while you go through cancer treatment. Everything else in the painting is the same and that is how people going through cancer most likely will want their life to go as they are going through treatment, therefore, they will likely love the idea of getting treated for their cancer in their own home where they feel the most comfortable and normal. In the advertisement it even says in......

Piero Della Francesca’s the Flagellation of Christ

...theme to appear in artwork, which depicted Jews, eventually signified the wear’s pride in the Jewish religion and their resistance to assimilate to the Christian community. Along with the beard, the hat of the man portrays him as a Jew, it was another characteristic of traditional Jewish garb. Once Hoffman identified the bearded man as a Jew and then uses context to identify the two others. He argued that the Jewish man was participating in debate due to the position of his hands. This would classify the bald man as a Christian who is opposing the Jew. The juxtaposition of the two characters’ costumes enforces the idea that the bald man is a Christian because he is opposite the Jew in hair and clothes. Similar to the idea in my visual analysis, the author realized the significance between the architecture behind each man. “The Classical architecture behind the bearded figure would refer to a pagan, pre- or un-Christian world while the Gothic architecture behind the bald figure would stand for a Christian world.” Lastly Hoffman identifies the young man as an impartial youth. With all characters of the foreground identified Hoffman then justifies their existence by describing the debate and it’s relation to the flagellation behind. “The painting represents a debate between a Jew and a Christian and that, further, the subject of debate is the nature of Jesus’ messiahship, its acceptance by the Christians and its rejection by the Jews.” These debates were often......

The bald eagle is an endangered species and is the only unique eagle found on the North America continent.

S. state except Hawaii. 80% of the bald eagles in the United States are found in Alaska. The Liberty Bell is a huge bronze bell that symbolizes freedom in the United States of America.

Tybee Island Tybee Island is an island and city. It is located in Chatham County, Georgia, near the city of Savannah. Some interesting facts include: it is the easternmost point in the state of Georgia, most historians believe “Tybee” is derived from the Native American Euchee word for “salt”, and the beaches of Tybee Island serve as an important nesting area for endangered sea turtles. Tybee Island was formed by rocks under the sea being pushed up by force and over the years part of the rocks fell back into the ocean and then it eventually became a flat surface.

...Beavers are real. Bald Eagle The bald eagle has a body length of 70–102 centimeters. Their wingspan is typically between 1.8 and 2.3 meters and mass is usually between 2.5 and 7 kilograms. Females are about 25 percent larger than males, averaging 5.8 kilograms and against the males' average weight of 4.1 kilograms. Its diet consists mainly of fish, but it is an opportunistic feeder. It hunts fish by swooping down and snatching the fish out of the water with its talons. The average lifespan of Bald Eagles in the wild is around 20 years, with the oldest living to be about 30. In captivity, they often live somewhat longer. In one instance, a captive individual in New York lived for nearly 50 years. As with size, the average lifespan of an eagle population appears to be influenced by its location. The Bald Eagle prefers habitats near seacoasts, rivers, large lakes, oceans, and other large bodies of open water with an abundance of fish. The beak is a adaptation for the bald eagle. The beak is strong and thick, and sharply pointed at the downward tip to rip into a fish or a frozen roadkill, but the mouth is wide enough at the gape to handle fairly big chunks. Although the beak is clearly designed for ripping apart meat, parent eagles can also use it to tenderly feed and groom their babies. The eagle's brain figures out where the fish is even though refraction of light at the water's surface makes the fish appear to be in a slightly different place. Nothing hunts bald eagles......
