“When the mentality & desire for shark fin soup significantly diminishes, fins will become less lucrative. Unfortunately, it'll be awhile. There is a small movement in Asia, among the younger population, railing against this & the exotic animal trade. In the meantime however, animal species will continue to become, threatened, endangered or extinct from the wild. IUCN recently declared the western black rhino extinct from the wild & we all know why that happened! BTW, I unknowingly ate shark fin soup at a major celebration. It tastes horrible, one spoonful was enough. THEN, I found out what it was, I was horrified & politely spoke my mind.”

“I should add that the concern of silicon dioxide is its purity, as in toxins from pollution, etc. also, beware of all that plastic packaging (fast food included) & the chronic ingestion of leached chemicals; bottled drinks, baby bottles, plastic containers, esp hot foods, plastic wrap esp when touching food in microwave. BPA in canned food unless stated on the label. Again, worse than the occas slice of pizza, salad, chili.”

“While some of this stuff is nasty, some of the ingredients described aren't so terrible. Silicon dioxide is also found in pharmaceuticals, supplements... It's not bad for you, the human body requires a certain amt of silicon, a trace mineral. If you're taking vitamins/minerals, eating oranges, apples, grapes, cukes, beans, seeds, nuts or drinking beer, wine, juice & even water, then you're ingesting some sort of silicon dioxide. There's got to be a better reason not to eat Wendy's chili like maybe the sodium content!!!”

BluebirdofUnhappiness on Nov 21, 2013 at 22:01:44

“Not to mention that silicon dioxide is only added to dry stuff and I think cheese shreds to keep things from sticking in a big glob. It's probably in the chili powder. It does nothing to the chili. But it's typical HP horrible "reporting".”

“Yes, thank you.

Similarly, all studies have shown that dimethylpolysiloxane is completely benign and passes through you entirely without effect. It's the long sounding name that gets the dull-witted confused enough to associate it with being dangerous.

Tell those people that Dihydrogen Monoxide is far more concerning and they'll believe you. Especially if you give them some random facts about it (such as it being in almost everything we eat, is used in many toxic substances, it's found in almost all cancerous lesions, and millions die from it each year due to accidentally inhalation).”

“Well, if red tailed hawks so choose, they could easily return to their original territory since 100 miles isn't all that far for one to travel. It'd be interesting to see if the same birds are re-caught simply by banding them.”

Wildaboutcanadageese on Nov 9, 2013 at 21:26:31

“Well if they don't return to their original territory they will be replaced by other hawks so I don't see this as a great long term solution.”

“I suppose you could say the same about grave stones since they're really just a bunch of carved rocks, man-made. These rocks were simply (but no so simply) nature made thousands of yrs ago & had a significance to a particular group of people. Respect for anything seems irrelevant today.”

“I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that they, or at least Glenn Taylor, haven't been charged, but are just being "investigated" considering much law enforcement are LDS. These 3 guys compiled all the evidence needed for officials to prosecute. Hopefully I'm wrong & LDS membership is irrelevant.”

“? ..."I didn't have to push hard"....said Glenn Taylor. There was most definitely effort involved toppling this rock. If this had been a group of kids or just some guys not affiliated with BSA or some church group, there'd be no investigstion. They'd be charged already!! If Utah enforcement does not charge Taylor, they'll set a new precedence for future vandals.”

“There is such a thing as rogue bull elephants, generally very agressive, quite often killed by villagers due to fear &/or crop-property destruction, sometimes killed by rangers. Cash for these hunts is intended for reserves, village education, employment or damage restitution... Whether this happens, I can't say. Yes, its controversial to me.”

“I'm a bit conflicted here. On one hand, these types of hunts, which are supposedly bulls only, bring in much needed $ to reserves & especially needed $ to supply sanctuary security guards park rangers, etc. Many are necessarily armed. On the other hand, to film this & openly gloat about the kill, calling the animal "cheeky" as if self defense is not a normal reaction by anything or anyone! To joke about sneaky into its bedroom, drinking champagne, etc. Seems like he could have appeared respectful, discussed how $ is aiding reserves, problems bull elephants can cause... Why Makris would want to show this death, then boast in this manner is beyond me. What's soooo ironic is that NBC will blur out butt "cleavage" & whatnot yet they have no qualms showing this animal actually, truly, graphically being shot & killed!?!”

“There's a lot of "what ifs" going on among the defenders of this atrocity. What if it's just as it appears: A coward kills an endangered animal for spite because he is wealthy?”

elephantlovers on Sep 26, 2013 at 16:25:17

“There is no money "aiding reserves" and the bulls are not the problem, it is people encroaching on the elephant's habitat for thousands of years.In reality trophy hunters decrease an area economically. Tourists will not go there. There is more money and more people who want to "hunt" with a camera that with a gun. Numbers count in bringing in the money and that is tourists, not hunters. It is spewing pure vomit after having been brainwashed to say it is conservation, it is perversion of the most pyschologically unfit sort.”

“Another question; Which Earth entity has done the most damage to Earth itself, God's personal creation, esp long term, consequences into the far-off future? If the answer is humans, was that what He meant by dominion? Do whatever the heck you'd like to do no matter the repercussions?”

Debbie129 on Sep 15, 2013 at 22:59:54

“Humans have done the most damage I would guess.  Our air pollution, factory pollution, etc. harm our planet.  But God will not judge us for these things.  We as Humans have the knowledge to care for our planet and should do so or we will suffer the consequences, without interference from God.  When God gave us Dominion over the earth, it meant that we as Humans would be over all other things on the earth.  I realize that you think you putting up a good argument but you simply are not.  God gave us Dominion over the earth and instructions in the form of commandments as to how we should live on this earth he created.”

“If human beings were the only entity that did not exist on Earth, what would happen? Might the Earth explode or something of the sorts? Would the millions of other species specific Earth entities not be able to survive w/o us? Why are we the most important? What exactly is meant by created in His likeness? Did God mean the physical likeness, the knowledgable likeness, both or are we just similar, the true meaning of likeness? Is the human goal to eventually gain his knowledge, become completely enlightened? Can you or anyone answer these questions with 100% certainty or are some things simply meant to be unknown? If not, then no human can be absolutely sure that we are the most important entity on Earth & that we were created in His exact likeness.”

Debbie129 on Sep 15, 2013 at 23:10:59

“When humans no longer exist on this earth, nothing will exist on this earth.  God said, 'when Christ returns to earth, he will call those who have their name written in the Book Of Life to be with God the Father who is in Heaven.'  'Satan will be freed from his chains to claims his souls, those who did not have their name written in The Book Of Life, and he shall rule over them in Hell for eternity'.  That is the gist of what it says, so based on that scripture I would say that if Humans are not here neither will ANYTHING else.  God said, 'the earth will be no more'. ”

Debbie129 on Sep 15, 2013 at 22:22:54

“Yeah I'm completely sure!  God said he created us in "His likeness."  He gave us dominion over the EARTH AND EVERYTHING IN IT!  God was pleased with everything he created, He said so, but Humans were the only thing he created in His likeness.  Humans are the only things on earth who have the free-will to make decisions concerning their faith and belief in God. And yes, One day we will be enlightened beyond our mortal comprehension.  Good or bad, we will see God and he will reveal our everlasting destiny based on our works and our faith.  If you really want to know what God meant when he said He created us in "His likeness", read your bible, its in Genesis.”

“I wondered if the baby has a medical condition since it's not unusual for an animal to reject their newborn for those reasons. Or is it simply a mothering issue? Curious if mom has ever been exposed to a newborn prior to this, no exposure to mothering which young females "learn" to some degree in herds.”

“That's what I'm thinking. I grew up on a farm and parents sometimes rejected their offspring if they detected a condition in them that made them less likely to survive. I save a nearly dead duckling one time that grew to be bigger and stronger then the other ones.”
