i’ve been lagging dynamically, mentally, physically and statically, im so lame!

this pullover he gave mefor my birthday is way too warm, im boiling from

inside.

then i’ve been checking some old blogger friednss and holy shit, i missed

a lot.

what else? i’ve been planning christmas since hhhm tomorrow, i will think

of  it later, ok? AND HAVEN’T DONE THE SHOPPING YET.

i have added a new word to my vocab, sister-in-law, gawd it’s such a …

let’s not say what cos i know he may read here and he will kill me for bitching about his sis, im looking forward to not to meet her cos i prefer gay christmas to anything else, let’s pray her

plane gets a flat tyre.

he had made me a wishlist , i decided to ignore but this act of his had a very bad

impression on the little girl, she wanted to have her own wishlist , thanks hell she forgot but if she got herself one, i will post it  to her silly  &^*%$#W#$^$% mom and her bf will sue me with hate crime 😀

back to the sister-in law, i have made my mind to call her before landing to this unfortunate

bean city and tell her i will be having a gay orgy for christmas, likes it  or not and i know she wont like it. and i don’t care.

whatelse? i want a big christmas surprise, something very romantic but my

beloved partner doesnt have “romantic ideas” so i thought i may higher a

temporary woman lover for the romantic part, but that’s so lame.

again back to the sister-in-law, oh she is not yet the sister in law , yippe!

and i was thinking of joining my granny on the plane and go home, sorta missing relatives i guess but i doubt they ever

missed me . they may like my baby though.

there are hell of things to think about, for now it’s bed time, i wantd to sleep on the sofa cos he’s sick and may wake me up with his coughs but as long as i’m sneezing myself with a runny nose, i think we make a good couple for tonight.

now i go to bed but i’ll be happy with an invitation for christmas, if ever

wanted  a cool couple with a little cute girl you can count on me but i cant promise your place looks thesamewhen we leave (she’s more like a monkey than a human!)

i think it’s bed time and i have to go towork tomorrow, urrggghh

good night

i haven’t done much yesterday and i’m not gonna do anything today, and tomorrow won’t be any different.

All i wanna do is to sit down and stare at the clock and let those stupid hands chase one another till eternity.

it’s not important how bored and down and depressed i am, i just want to stay in bed and imagine myself standing on top of a cliff, do you wanna be the one who push me down?

i’m intolerable when feeling normal, let alone feeling down in the dumps, so leame alone and let me deal with my own shit in my own way, can you fuck off me?  don’t forget to shut the door.

there are many times i feel like slaves, but they were happier, they knew what they were.

sometimes life gives us lessons that we can’t see at that time but we could live better if we were aware of ’em.

and how much i wanna sit down and write but i have to go to work

it’s sunny outside and warm, so let’s have Alaska news

Alaska pilot lands on Oregon highway
BAKER CITY, Ore. – Poor weather forced a Ketchikan pilot to land on an Oregon highway in his seaplane, Oregon State Police said.

*********

The sunset provides a warm backdrop as the 2007 Anchorage Fur Rendezvous kicks off with traditional fireworks, Feb. 23, 2007, in a view seen from Arctic Valley Road. The show was sponsored by AT&T Alascom.

huh, why i cant put the pic here???!! never mind it was just another Alaskan sunset.

love me more.

and i think i write better when depressed, don’t you think so?

*. i read my previous post and shit it had lotta mistakes, i must read my own crap at least once before publishing! but well i enjoyed that post cos i could see myself walking infronna my eyes hihihi

Right now my clock shows 5.45 pm, surely my putter has its own clock but it’s set for the Eastern Time so I don’t have to think much dealing with time differences.
I’m a bit bored (read missing the little city I used to live in) as usual it’s dark outside so I feel quite sleepy too.
I have established a few good habits like sleeping more than 10 hours, all I want is to stay in bed and do nothing, I can’t watch TV cos it really annoys me, I don’t like going to the theaters though it’s Oscar time and probably you can find a few worth-watching movies (any suggestion?)
I’ve called Meg 3 times since noon and she told me I better call tomorrow cos she’s tired of cleaning the place and packing and I didn’t let her snooze.
I hate all the news, the military tries to explain Alaskan soldier deaths, people demonstrate against war; it’s cloudy outside and most places are mushy, we have all these ice pile-up and avalanche warnings, J, the bf, is playing with Alexis so I’m gonna nominate him for being her godfather.
Shiiittt, Alexis is not baptized yet and I bet she won’t be in near future cos it’s the beginning of endless arguments with Meg on what religion she should have. I’m not really pushy but I can’t see the reason that she should be Christian.
Till now I have discovered interracial relations and marriages are fine but not inter-religions!
I’m not really religious (obvious, right?) but I never liked that guy called Christ.
I’m hungry, no I’m starving and I want something to eat; it’s another good habit so in a few weeks time I’m gonna weigh like a mammoth, wait for that!
J has terrible eating habits, he has brunch every day around 11-12 and then dipper (dinner & supper) at 7-8, that’s all he has and it doesn’t mean he eat less than me or he’s on any fucking diet, I bet he eats twice the usual amount I eat but just twice a day, I really need Meg to kick his ass hard, I just need 1.5 days to wait and it looks like forever!
Till now I thought I’m a real baby freak, smiling, mugging & sticking my tongue at every random baby I meet ; I was wrong, this guy is worse than me.
It really takes people some time to decide who her dad is. And if in the end they point at me it’s just because of little similarities.
And I like the sympathetic looks, I have NFI why they think of me as a single parent, I even met an elderly woman who tried her best preaching tone to tell me the baby needs her mom more than her dad.
WTF! I already know that.
Ok I better go get myself something then enjoy the 3-day vacation.

there’s this funny fact that we can’t judge people pretty well by their blogs, we need to meet them and once met, we need some time to talk to them to figure out the likes and dislikes and assess them on jerk-ass-meter.
but there’s one thing i like about the blogsphere and it’s the “about me pages”. sometimes you can’t know more than what you already know but some has really good and funny stuff there, all numbered from 1 to 100. and i wonder why it should be 100, i want it to be 101 nope 121 things about me.
bet it’s gonna take lotta effort to finish it but let’s give it a try

What is a rainbow?

Author Donald Ahrens in his text Meteorology Today describes a rainbow as “one of the most spectacular light shows observed on earth”. Indeed the traditional rainbow is sunlight spread out into its spectrum of colors and diverted to the eye of the observer by water droplets. The “bow” part of the word describes the fact that the rainbow is a group of nearly circular arcs of color all having a common center.

Where is the sun when you see a rainbow?

This is a good question to start thinking about the physical process that gives rise to a rainbow. Most people have never noticed that the sun is always behind you when you face a rainbow, and that the center of the circular arc of the rainbow is in the direction opposite to that of the sun. The rain, of course, is in the direction of the rainbow.

What makes the bow?

A question like this calls for a proper physical answer. We will discuss the formation of a rainbow by raindrops. It is a problem in optics that was first clearly discussed by Rene Descartes in 1637. An interesting historical account of this is to be found in Carl Boyer’s book, The Rainbow From Myth to Mathematics. Descartes simplified the study of the rainbow by reducing it to a study of one water droplet and how it interacts with light falling upon it.He writes:“Considering that this bow appears not only in the sky, but also in the air near us, whenever there are drops of water illuminated by the sun, as we can see in certain fountains, I readily decided that it arose only from the way in which the rays of light act on these drops and pass from them to our eyes. Further, knowing that the drops are round, as has been formerly proved, and seeing that whether they are larger or smaller, the appearance of the bow is not changed in any way, I had the idea of making a very large one, so that I could examine it better.

Descarte describes how he held up a large sphere in the sunlight and looked at the sunlight reflected in it. He wrote “I found that if the sunlight came, for example, from the part of the sky which is marked AFZ and my eye was at the point E, when I put the globe in position BCD, its part D appeared all red, and much more brilliant than the rest of it; and that whether I approached it or receded from it, or put it on my right or my left, or even turned it round about my head, provided that the line DE always made an angle of about forty-two degrees with the line EM, which we are to think of as drawn from the center of the sun to the eye, the part D appeared always similarly red; but that as soon as I made this angle DEM even a little larger, the red color disappeared; and if I made the angle a little smaller, the color did not disappear all at once, but divided itself first as if into two parts, less brilliant, and in which I could see yellow, blue, and other colors … When I examined more particularly, in the globe BCD, what it was which made the part D appear red, I found that it was the rays of the sun which, coming from A to B, bend on entering the water at the point B, and to pass to C, where they are reflected to D, and bending there again as they pass out of the water, proceed to the point “.

This quotation illustrates how the shape of the rainbow is explained. To simplify the analysis, consider the path of a ray of monochromatic light through a single spherical raindrop. Imagine how light is refracted as it enters the raindrop, then how it is reflected by the internal, curved, mirror-like surface of the raindrop, and finally how it is refracted as it emerges from the drop. If we then apply the results for a single raindrop to a whole collection of raindrops in the sky, we can visualize the shape of the bow.

The traditional diagram to illustrate this is shown here as adapted from Humphreys, Physics of the Air. rain.jpg It represents the path of one light ray incident on a water droplet from the direction SA. As the light beam enters the surface of the drop at A, it is bent (refracted) a little and strikes the inside wall of the drop at B, where it is reflected back to C. As it emerges from the drop it is refracted (bent) again into the direction CE. The angle D represents a measure of the deviation of the emergent ray from its original direction. Descartes calculated this deviation for a ray of red light to be about 180 – 42 or 138 degrees.

The ray drawn here is significant because it represents the ray that has the smallest angle of deviation of all the rays incident upon the raindrop. It is called the Descarte or rainbow ray and much of the sunlight as it is refracted and reflected through the raindrop is focused along this ray. Thus the reflected light is diffuse and weaker except near the direction of this rainbow ray. It is this concentration of rays near the minimum deviation that gives rise to the arc of rainbow.

The sun is so far away that we can, to a good approximation, assume that sunlight can be represented by a set of parallel rays all falling on the water globule and being refracted, reflected internally, and refracted again on emergence from the droplet in a manner like the figure. Descartes writes

I took my pen and made an accurate calculation of the paths of the rays which fall on the different points of a globe of water to determine at which angles, after two refractions and one or two reflections they will come to the eye, and I then found that after one reflection and two refractions there are many more rays which can be seen at an angle of from forty-one to forty-two degrees than at any smaller angle; and that there are none which can be seen at a larger angle” (the angle he is referring to is 180 – D).

Nothing can be done against the truth
No matter how we remain in denial
Wasting time
Replacing time
With each empty excuse
But that’ll only work a little while
Coping with despair
Knowing you’re not there
Ashamed to just admit
I’ve been a fool
So I blame it on the Sun
Run away from everyone
Hoping to escape this ridicule
Trapped in misery
Wrapped so miserably
In this deception that im wearing like a skin
Dying to mantain
Oh I keep trying to explain
A heart that never loved me to begin
Oh I’m such a mess
I have no choice but to confess
That I’ve been desperately trying to belong
Lying to myself
And everybody else
Refusing to admit my right was wrong

How beautiful this fruit still in denial of its roots?
My guilty heart behaved so foolishly
This treason from within
That reasons with my sin
Won’t be happy til it sees the death of me
Selfishly addicted
To a life that I depicted
Conflicted cuz it’s not reality
Oh what’s left of me
I beg you desperately
Cause me to agree from what I know is best for me
Please save me from myself
I need You to save me from myself
Please save me from myself so I can heal

The choices that Ive made
Oh have been nothing but mistakes
What a wasted use of space
Should I die before I wake?
In all of my religion
I’ve fortified this prison
Obligated to obey
The demands of bad decisions

Please save me from myself
I need You to save me from myself
Please save me from myself so I can heal

What is the degree of family involvement in the treatment program?

Drug abuse and alcoholism affects the entire family, not just the alcoholic/addict. Quite often family members do not realize how deeply they have been affected by chemical dependency. Family involvement is an important component of recovery.

Drug Rehabs vary in the degree and quality of family involvement opportunities. Some offer just a few lectures and others offer family therapy. Ask if there is any time devoted to family programs and if group therapy is included.

Does drug rehabilitation include a quality continuing care program?

There are no quick fixes for the diseases of drug abuse and alcoholism. Recovery is an ongoing process. The skills one learns during intensive rehabilitation treatment must be integrated into everyday life and this takes time.

Some drug addiction treatment programs will offer a follow-up program but only in one location which may make it difficult to use.

Drug rehabilitation treatment programs should include a quality, continuing care program that supports and monitors recovery.

Adolescent Substance Abuse

Being a teenager and raising a teenager are individually, and collectively, enormous challenges. For many teens, illicit substance use and abuse become part of the landscape of their teenage years. Although most adolescents who use drugs do not progress to become drug abusers, or drug addicts in adulthood, drug use in adolescence is a very risky proposition. Even small degrees of substance abuse (for example, alcohol, marijuana, and inhalants) can have negative consequences. Typically, school and relationships, notably family relationships, are among the life areas that are most influenced by drug use and abuse.

One of the most telling signs of a teen’s increasing involvement with drugs is when drug use becomes part of the teen’s daily life. Preoccupation with drugs can crowd out previously important activities, and the manner in which the teen views him or her self may change in unrealistic and inaccurate directions. Friendship groups may change, sometimes dramatically, and relationships with family members can become more distant or conflictual. Further bad signs include more frequent use or use of greater amounts of a certain drug, or use of more dangerous drugs, such as cocaine, amphetamines, or heroin. Persistent patterns of drug use in adolescence are a sign that problems in that teen’s environment exist and need to be addressed immediately.

What causes adolescent substance abuse?
There is no single cause of adolescent drug problems. Drug abuse develops over time; it does not start as full-blown abuse or addiction. There are different pathways or routes to the development of a teen’s drug problems. Some of the factors that may place teens at risk for developing drug problems include:

  •  
    • insufficient parental supervision and monitoring
    • lack of communication and interaction between parents and kids
    • poorly defined and poorly communicated rules and expectations against drug use
    • inconsistent and excessively severe discipline
    • family conflict
    • favorable parental attitudes toward adolescent alcohol and drug use, and parental alcoholism or drug use

It is important to also pay attention to individual risk factors. These include:

  •  
    • high sensation seeking
    • impulsiveness
    • psychological distress
    • difficulty maintaining emotional stability
    • perceptions of extensive use by peers
    • perceived low harmfulness to use

A supermarket is a departmentalized self-service store offering a wide variety of food and household merchandise. It is larger in size and has a wider selection than a traditional grocery store.

The supermarket typically comprises meat, produce, dairy, and baked goods departments along with shelf space reserved for canned and packaged goods as well as for various nonfood items such as household cleaners, pharmacy products, and pet supplies. Most supermarkets also sell a variety of other household products that are consumed regularly, such as alcohol (where permitted), household cleaning products, medicine, clothes, and some sell a much wider range of non-food products.

The traditional supermarket occupies a large floor space on a single level and is situated near a residential area in order to be convenient to consumers. Its basic appeal is the availability of a broad selection of goods under a single roof at relatively low prices. Other advantages include ease of parking and, frequently, the convenience of shopping hours that extend far into the evening. Supermarkets usually make massive outlays for newspaper and other advertising and often present elaborate in-store displays of products. Supermarkets are often part of a chain that owns or controls (sometimes by franchise) other supermarkets located in the same or other towns; this increases the opportunities for economies of scale.

In North America, supermarket chains are often supplied from the distribution centers of a larger business, such as Loblaw Companies in Canada, which owns thousands of supermarkets across the nation. They have a distribution center in every province — usually in the largest city in the province.

A larger full-service supermarket combined with a department store is sometimes known as a hypermarket. Other services that supermarkets may have include banks, cafés, creches, photo development, video rental, pharmacies, and/or gas stations.

he closed his eyes and tried to think of nothing and listen to the silence that didn’t exist, feel the cold that surrounded him.
he was trapped in his invisible cage, his hands and feet were tied to the metal bar of his bed. he could hear his own heartbeat and numbered breaths, he could smell dirt and the piece of clothe in his mouth tasted like blood. the headache was killing him…

loud music, people chatting animatedly, bottles and glasses everywhere, though it wasn’t too late, a few were lying drunk on any piece of furniture they could find. and he could hear the loud music, everyone dancing and enjoying her/his-self, and he didn’t belong to that crowd, for a second he thought he was invisible when a guy tapped him on his shoulder. “wanna try”.
he took a look at that guy’s hand, “yeah” and swallowed all the ingredients of his glass…..

he could hear the voices from outside but he wasn’t really sure how many people were standing out there, he gazed at the door when it banged open and 3 muscular guys with stocking masks on their faces came in…..

what will happen next?
1. those guys fucked the legs off him and he felt like a miserable rape victim the rest of his life
2. he tried to negotiate with those guys and after a few minutes they agree to give him 500$ to give them a head each
3. they were cold-blooded murderers, shot him dead and left the room

“Different Picture”
The Sunday after Christmas, the Sunday School teacher told her students about an angel appearing to Joseph in a dream, warning him about danger to the baby Jesus and telling him how to escape from it.
After the story time, the students were given an opportunity to draw a picture about the story. Most of the pictures were predictable, but keith’s had an odd element in it.
“Keith, I see Joseph and Mary with the baby Jesus on a donkey, but what is that following the donkey?
“It’s the flea, teacher.”
“What flea?” asked the teacher.
To which the boy faithfully repeated the Bible verse: “Take Mary and Jesus and flea to Egypt. There’s Mary; there’s Jesus; and there’s the flea.”

Why do people kiss under the mistletoe? ever wondered?
The custom of kissing under the mistletoe originates in Norse(not nose) mythology. According to the Scandinavians, the handsome and gracious god Balder had a premonition about his murder. To prevent the death,Frigg, his mother, made every living thing promise not to kill her son. Her only omission was the insignificant mistletoe.
Loki, the evil god (but he was a good guy, i knew him), discovered Frigg’s oversight, and sought to exploit it. Appearing as an uninvited guest at a banquet in Valhalla, Loki watched as the other gods shot arrows at Balder for fun, marveling at how none of the arrows pierced the seemingly invulnerable god. Loki, always seeking to harm, also shot an arrow at Balder, but his arrow was made of mistletoe, so it killed him.
Though clearly innocent by modern standards, the other gods were angry at the mistletoe for killing their favorite god. As retribution, they allowed Frigg to do what she wanted to the plant. Rather than hurt it, Frigg, the goddess of love, decided to make the mistletoe a symbol of affection, asking that anyone standing under it be given a kiss of love and forgiveness.

297448042_b85e42941d_m.jpg

jus thinking about the many times i wanna get lost. sometimes i think of the possibility of getting lost.

but fuck this GPS!

have you ever thought about places that never has snow. it’s horrible from my pointa view. almost my whole life i lived in places that had 4 seasons, even here in Ak.  though im near north pole i can still feel the 4 seasons (but summers are really short & winters are hell long).

the other day while chatting with a friend living some where so hot (tropical i mean -0 degree) he asked me about snowman cos i was talking about the cold weather (14F now) & snow.

i dont remember the exact words but he asked me something i never thought of.

first i had to explain what snowman is, for those who dunno better check here, then he asked why we build it.

273638298_ce343d8727.jpg

honestly i didnt know the answer & i didnt think he was serious, but when he compared it with scarecrow, i got the point.

250px-kakashi2.jpg

all these years with the first snow(not always with the 1st hihihi) i made my own snowman & i always made it for fun (not yet made any this year, waitin for a big snow to make alexis’ first snowman)

yes snowmen are not made to frighten any bird but i thought of some uses for them.

snowman can be

  1. used as pet dog, it can watch your house while away cos it’s always there & nobody can move it by any means
  2. used as a fridge, make a hole in the stomach & put your favorite food there
  3.  used as gf-bf for desperate people who cant find dates
  4. your futre psychiatrist, you can talk for hours without being charged a red dime
  5. the reason to take a few days off work, if you hug him/her, you’ll catch cold.
  6. and you can kill him to get rid of your anger

you can also teach your snowman to do the followings:

  1. wake you up in the mornings by throwin snowballs at your window
  2. making you breakfast while you’re enjoyin yer additional sleeping time
  3. watch yer baby girl while you’re playin with yer puter (pretendin to be busy to avoid someone’s nags-should i mention who?!)
  4. talk the inuit language (cos you cant do it yourself)
  5. wash the dishes, do the laundry
  6. ironin your clothes
  7. kickin the ass of all the jerkasses around
  8. pee near neighbor’s door(the same thing done by his dog)
  9. frighten kids so they wont knock on yer door & ask you to help them with their homework
  10. go to work instead of you

but be careful when facing she-snowman, he might fall in love & then find some privacy & do the forbidden touch & make lotta baby snowmen. so ask him to use cellphone every hour to make sure he’s gonna be infertile.

more uses will be available after the next snow, now i gotta make myself some coffee cos i dont have a pet snowman yet

the other day i took a look at this blog & honestly i havent seen such a better random rants.
there’s no logics in it. oh how much i love disorder, jus imagine you could stay in bed as much as you like then go to work whenever you have nothing else to do & you could do anything sometimes be a boss sometimes a bus driver, sometimes a pilot sometimes a polarbear, or….. probably an angel. well but i better play my role as hellboy aka son-in-law.
now i can see the point clearly, point of what?!?! the undeniable fact that i miss my in-laws, how dare they left us to enjoy themselves in another village not too far from here. you have no idea how good it is to have your breakfast fixed while you have more time to stay in bed. i love mom-in-law when she treats us like naughty kids that shouldnt get into the kitchen cos there’d be a mess after they leave (& to some extent it’s true )
im quite blank tonight & feel better with a headache cuased by lack of sleep, so i wanna go to bed & make you read a very very very heart-breaking news about wild life here, sleep tight hellboy & dont try to walk around drinking blood, d’ahhhh!

Why are they dying?

More dead sea otters are being found near Homer, and lethal bacteria are linked to deaths

Published: September 27, 2006
Last Modified: September 27, 2006 at 09:33 AM

Thin and listless, the sea otter washed ashore the morning of Sept. 19 by Homer’s Land’s End Resort. Struggling to breathe, it appeared partially paralyzed.

By 9:47 a.m., a phone call came in to Homer resident Cy St-Amand, who with his wife L.A. Holmes volunteers with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to monitor and pick up stranded marine mammals.
As he has done countless times before, St-Amand arrived on the scene, observed the animal’s behavior, scooped the otter up and began the 173-mile drive to the Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward for treatment.
Unfortunately, St-Amand said, the otter displayed the classic symptoms of a deadly bacterial infection linked to a die-off in Kachemak Bay. Fish and Wildlife calls such die-offs “Unusual Mortality Events” or UMEs, and this one has attracted the attention of national sea otter experts.
No one knows exactly how severe the Kachemak Bay die-off is, Doroff said, but the anecdotal evidence is troubling. Over the years, reports of washed-up otters, either dead or nearly dead, have increased along the Homer Spit and surrounding area.
In Southwest Alaska, the population has declined by more than 90 percent in portions of the Aleutian Island chain and along the southern Alaska Peninsula since the late 1980s. Last August, the Southwest population of northern sea otters was listed as threatened under the federal Endangered Species Act.
The problem is just as perplexing. Gill said sea otters may die or wash up on beaches for many reasons, including disease, boat strikes, starvation or other injuries. But in Kachemak Bay, an unusually high number of these dead animals have been diagnosed with the bacterium Streptococcus bovis, which can block arteries in different parts of the body, often near the hip, causing the telltale paralysis St-Amand often sees in otters he retrieves.
The last survey of the Kachemak Bay sea otters, in 2002, estimated the population at nearly 1,000 animals. No one knows how the current die-off has affected the population.
Doroff said federal experts help by providing information that can link necropsy results with studies on the wild population. Also, the experts will help conduct new population surveys to monitor the population trend over time. That information will give Fish and Wildlife a better idea of the extent of the problem, Doroff said.
“We don’t know if they are dying from the bacteria or if the bacteria is secondary to another problem,” Gill said.
According to Gill’s research, sea otters whose deaths have been linked to Streptococcus have been found from Umnak Island in the eastern Aleutians to Homer’s Kachemak Bay.
Whether this is a product of more human eyes spotting the otters or a problem specific to the bay is unknown, Doroff said. Still, the high mortality and the conditions under which the animals are dying prompt concern, she said.
“It’s … never a good sign to see prime-aged animals dying,” Doroff said. “Your typical mortality pattern includes very young or very old animals. But what we’re seeing is a lot of prime-aged animal not making it.”
In Gill’s study of 147 animals:
• 72 percent of the affected animals were male;
• 44 percent were considered of prime age, between 4 and 10 years old.
“Having a large proportion of animals die of a single infectious disease … suggests … the introduction of a ‘new’ disease into a previously naive population,” she wrote in her study. The study continues, Doroff said, and now numbers about 190 animals.

ON THE SCENE
Sept. 19’s stranding call left St-Amand sitting at the end of the Homer Spit, trying to decide if he should wait out one tide cycle to observe the otter, as is protocol in the Fish and Wildlife’s stranding network, or take the animal in immediately.
His experience prevailed. The animal was too skinny, too debilitated to help itself, he said. Fish and Wildlife officials asked him to pick it up immediately and deliver it to veterinarians at the Alaska SeaLife Center, who work with Fish and Wildlife and stranding volunteers to care for injured and sick marine mammals.
“I’m transferring (the otter) from a pickup that we use to pick the otters off the beach with to a Dodge Caravan that has air conditioning,” he explained as he drove toward Seward. “We want them to be in a quiet environment without any jarring, and we provide them with ice and water so they can rehydrate themselves. Otters are very finicky on their heat transport, especially when they’re sick.”
Tim Lebling, rehabilitation technician at the SeaLife Center, said 12 animals have been brought to the center so far this year, although they expect more as winter arrives and otters congregate in the bay.
Last year, they received 16. In 2004, there were six; in 2002, four.
The figures represent animals found alive, he pointed out. Animals found dead often are stored in freezers until necropsies can be performed, or are sent to Fish and Wildlife offices in Anchorage.
None of the animals with the bacterial infection survived, he said, including St-Amand’s rescue on Sept. 19.
FASCINATING FURBALLS
It’s easy to look at an otter and go, “awwww” as if cooing over a baby. They’re cute. They’re comical. They have large brown eyes that always seem to be looking straight at you. They seem to be eating all the time. They are the only marine mammal without a layer of blubber to protect them, depending instead on their thick fur coats and overactive metabolisms to stay warm.
But — and on this point Gill, St-Amand and Doroff agree — they are also a critical piece to the health of the marine ecosystem.
“Sea otters are a keystone species on the near shore, which means they radically change the invertebrate fauna,” Doroff said. “This in turn makes a much more rich and diverse near-shore system that is much more sustainable over the long haul.”
The most disturbing thing St-Amand hears in Homer is that sea otters are pests who eat the shellfish humans eat too — including dungeness crabs, clams and mussels. But those critics are missing the larger picture, he said.
“Sea otters eat sea urchins, and sea urchins eat kelp,” he said. “Without sea otters, sea urchin numbers increase and they graze off kelp, and without kelp your biodiversity plummets. An otter, contrary to what people believe, allows the kelp to grow.”
And when the kelp grows, Doroff said, the ecosystem is healthy, supporting fish eggs, herring and countless invertebrates that are food to seabird, shorebirds, fish and marine mammals.
“One of the things that is very alarming about the Aleutians and Southern Alaska is that we’ve lost our kelp beds in the areas of sea otter decline,” Doroff said. “The otter populations are still present in low densities but not high enough to keep these large kelp beds present and healthy. The whole carbon cycle has been changed dramatically by the absence of those beds.”

sometimes checking the statics part,the words that led to my blog confuse me.

i dont deny sometimes i write about personal parts of my life, but for heavens sake i cant remember a time i wrote about genitals.

im so happy i disappointed those retards looking for … inch cocks, hey i dont call a ’25” cock’ a penis,believe it or not it’s a trunk, it’s horrible, you gotta be more than 7 feets long to have such a thing.
