Science Fact of the Month – August 2010

Tuesday, August 31, 2010 @ 11:08 PM
Abbas Karimjee[ Administrator/ Owner]

 This month we  shall examine   the issue of endangered species. According to  http://wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn?s=endangered%20species, an endangered species is defined as a species whose numbers are so small that the species is at risk of extinction.

One example of a  endangered  species is   the African Elephant. The  African elephant has been endangered  due to a reduction of 50% in its  population throughout the course of the past 60 years.  While hunting of this endangered species, has been banned  , they are still often poached in various nations due to its ivory.

 

 One  effective way to help  endangered species  is  to become a member of   an organization which is dedicated to protecting  them. By doing this, you will be able to make use of  various resources  to   raise awareness of the  dangers  facing endangered species . Furthermore, by   uniting with others you will be able to work together to determine  a variety of effective  methods for providing assistance to the endangered  species.One example of how such organizations help provide assistance to them  is how they   push the Federal government to    pass laws which  help  preserve endangered species and their sensitive habitats. 

  A prominent organization  for protecting  endangered species is the Worldwildlife Organization which operates in over 100 countries ,with  the support of over 5 million members.  The organization  utilizes  our knowledge   modern science to its fullest potential in order to  help protect endangered species  and help maintain  the  diversity of  wildlife present  in Earth.

 Interesting Fact

 Globally, there are  over  1000 endangered species.

The New Man in Charge – Recap of LOST’S Epilogue

Wednesday, August 25, 2010 @ 01:08 PM

The epilogue commences with Benjamin Linus[ Michael Emerson] entering a  Dharma  Logistics Warehouse located in Guam and relieving the  attendants of the station from their duties as the station is being closed.

Media Products | TV Series | TV Shows | Lost | Individual | Michael Emerson

In an attempt to provide them  with some information,Ben allows  each of the two  workers to ask a  question. Ben explains how they have been shipping  foods to an island[  explaining  the mystery of why food was being dropped from the sky on the island] and that  the coordinates of this island have been changing since it moves. When the other  attendant asks why polar bear food is being sent to an island , presumably located in the tropics, Linus attempts to answer the question  by  showing the two a Dharma orientation video from  Dr. Pierre Chang . The  condition for seeing the video  was that  the two men would leave afterwards, to which they both agreed.

In the video, further questions regarding the island are answered. We learn that the experiments of the polar bears, who were  placed in the cages, were to test various biological traits and their  adaptability  under the influence of electromagnetism. We also receive   further hints that the electromagnetism  impacts pregnancy on the island as the video  indicates that attention must be given in order to ensure that  female    bears have not been impregnated since  serious issues result  from this  at the end of the first trimester.

The  video goes on to explain the purpose of the mysterious  chair in room 23,  which in the series was under control by the Others. Viewers may recall that Carl , Alex’s boyfriend was  forced in the chair when he had been captured by the Others.  According to the video, the chair was used  as way  to interrogate   the Hostiles  by obtaining info on their  traditions,  lifestyle and worship of Jacob.   A special video and glasses were  to be provided to the  hostile after the interrogation was complete so that  his/her memory of the  incident would  be wiped clean.

The video  concluded  shortly afterwards and   Ben   extends his farewells to the attendants who were  substantially reimbursed for their  20 years of service to the station.

Afterwards, Ben  visits  Santa Rosa Mental Institute to meet Walt[ Malcolm David Kelly], who is  now reffered to as Keith Johnson  .Ben offers his apologies to Walt for kidnapping him when he was on the island .  Ben    reminds Walt that he is special and  that he  does not belong outside of the island because of this difference. Ben  also adds that Walt can help his father despite the fact that he is dead. This suggests that Walt  will be significant in   releasing Michael’s burden  of being a Whisper on the island  for his  acts of murder against Anna Lousia and Libby.

Walt agrees to join Ben and the two meet Hurley[  George Garcia] inside  a Dharma van.  Hurley  assures Walt that he is not crazy and just needs  to  return to the island as this is where he belongs.  When Walt  questions why this is, Hurley  responds   by saying that he has a job  for him. They drive off  as  they  must now return to the  island, concluding  the 12 minute epilogue.

What are your thoughts on the epilogue? Were you satisfied?What intrigued you the most? Share your thoughts in the comments section directly below.
