How would you reduce poaching if a rhino’s horn could be cut and re-grown in 6 years?

The horn is cut off while the rhino is chemically immobilized (anaesthetized). The removal of the horn is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, similar to cutting one’s hair or nails and should not cause the rhino any pain or injury. Once the antagonist is administered, the rhino can be up and back on its feet within a few minutes. The risks associated with dehorning include those associated with anesthesia, cutting the horn off too close to growth point and, drugging and handling a very large animal and effects on behaviour. There are always risks associated with anesthesia. Etorphine\M99, the drug used for immobilizing rhino is procedure is a strictly controlled, high schedule potent opioid. Newer drug combinations and experience have reduced the risks. The current calculated mortality risk for free ranging rhino to < 1%. This procedure should only be carried out by a ‘rhino experienced’ wildlife vet and team using the correct protocols and taking the relevant precautions, should perform the dehorning. Due to the continual growth of the horn, dehorning may need to be repeated every 18 – 24 months. Repeated exposure to anaesthesia may contribute to short and long-term health problem; and increases the mortality risk to between 1-2 %. Contradictory opinions were expressed at the workshop. A specialist veterinary aneasthetist confirmed that risks increase with frequency of and repeated exposure to anaesthesia.
Drugging and handling of mega-herbivores carries inherent risks that may include injuries, bruising, overheating, cardiac distress, respiratory depression, increased blood pressure, localized pressure myopathies, miscarriages in pregnant females etc. The horn should be cut off safely above the germinal growth layer.

How to Stop Customers Form Fixating on Prive

...How to stop customers from fixating on price This article aims t tackle the problem that nowadays many customers are paying the most attention to the price when they purchase products or services. The article addresses the problem that most customers prefer the products that have the lowest price even though the value of the product is less compared to other products with higher price. This has caused products or services with higher innovation or value to be left uncompetitive. As a result the author proposed three main ways to price products or services that can mitigate the problems stated above. First is to use price structure to make it call attention to the value of the product or services. In order to do this, companies must revise its pricing structure or the basis that companies price various offerings. The key to do this is to vary price according to what’s most distinctive about the offering rather than makeup of the product or service itself.

How to Stop Being Conscious

...How to Stop Feeling Self Conscious Why do you feel self-conscious? Is it the way you look or the way you think you look? Who is judging you and why do you care about their opinions? This article will provide some strategies to help you decrease feelings of self consciousness that interfere with everyday life. Steps: * Identify what you're terribly conscious about. A certain aspect of your appearance? The twitch in your eye? Your accent? Your Disability? Your intellectual abilities? Make a list of these things and next to each item, write something you can do to improve it. * Figure out who you're trying to please and why. What kind of expectations are making you so self conscious? Is everyone around you picture perfect, or are you comparing yourself to airbrushed models in magazines? Have you convinced yourself that no one else has twitches, or flaws, or trips? Stop for a second and turn that self-criticism outwards. No one is perfect, and you've never noticed their little quirks before, so why would they pay so much attention to yours? Just feel like there's no need to worry and always picture yourself like you know you look and feel good in front of others, but don't think about it too much because it will already be embedded. * Redirect your attention. When you start to feel self conscious, locate a target - it doesn't matter what it is, it may be the bug crawling across the floor - and concentrate on it. What color is it? How many legs?

How to Stop Bulling

...Sarah Greene How To Stop Bullying Bullying is a huge issue in schools all around the world. “Treat others the way you want to be treated.” That’s the Golden Rule and it should be followed in every aspect of your life. If someone was in a position to stop you from being bullied and did nothing, how would you feel? If you find that unacceptable, you must do everything you can to stop others from hurting people. Are you even remotely aware of how much pain these victims feel every day? They go to school knowing they’re going to be hurt and they see no way out. This is because people like you and many others stand by and let it happen without contemplating how much pain this is causing people. Ask yourself this: How would you feel if you were in the victim’s position and could see no end to your pain? When the victims see no way out, they may choose to tragically end their life, leaving more hurt behind for those who were unable to stop it. The death of a young person is always a waste of life, so how many more lives must be wasted before something is done?If you condone bullying in any way, shape or form, you are taking part in it. Bullying is everyone’s responsibility and the option of doing nothing is unacceptable in civilized society. Some people may consider mocking someone funny, even though it is anything but funny to the victim. Small jabs taken every day can add up to a lot of pain and suffering. While it may seem innocent to the person taking the shots, the......

How to Stop Excessive Shopping

...The bad habit I choose to break could be excessive shopping for no reason. There are many steps to do it. First, define the specific concrete terms. For example, if you want to stop the excessive shopping from an individual for no reason, instead of asking the individual to stop shopping, we can ask him or her to reduce the time and money: from 25 hrs and $1000 a week to 5 hrs and $200 a week. The second step should be collecting the data about the behavior of the individual. So that it will be easier by knowing the starting line, we can set up the finish line. Designing the self control program could be the third step. Reduce the shopaholic tendency by half and then reduce it further, because it will be shocking for the person’s system reducing it suddenly which may do more harm than good. Identify two other interesting things the individual like other than shopping. For example, dining or going to movies. Encourage the individual by reinforcing for dining or moving; punish them for not doing that. Thirdly, plan how to resist the temptations of shopping. If punishments are not working, have the positive talk to him and explain the rewards he may get if he performs well. Explain to him that the short term goals are chatting with friends, using internet, dining outside, or going to movies and the long term goals could be minimizing the shopping time and reducing the amount of money spent. The fourth step is making the commitment to change. In this step, display the......

Poaching of Endangered Species

...Poaching of Endangered Species “The main reason for animals endangered is the uncontrolled human activity.” This quote was stated on a website called Animal Port. There are many reasons why this statement is true, one of them are poaching. Poaching occurs out of greed to make money. Although there are several laws to protect certain animals, this is a horrible act to any animal. Especially for the animals that are already endangered. Poachers minimizing these animal’s numbers for their own pleasure is not good. People who are against poaching should do what they can to stop this act from escalating, or there will not be any balance on this world. Animals are being killed every day from illegal hunting or capturing, that is called poaching; it’s getting worse and worse in certain places and we should do whatever we can to try and stop it. Poaching happens all around the world. Mainly in parts of the world where there is more game to hunt and a lot of money involved. A social science graduate from Makerere University Kampala in Uganda named Peter Galyak Magellan said that humans have been hunting for survival for a long time now and not because of pleasure. He stated “While primitive humans relied largely upon hunting for food, the agricultural revolution (approximately 10,000 years ago) reduced the need for survival hunting in most parts of the world. Hunting has continued, however, for several reasons, and poaching remains a possibility wherever hunting is...
