Since 2000, three false killer whales and two bottlenose dolphins that were caught in the wild have died inside the Ocean Adventure marine park. The facility is now entangled with Resorts World Singapore (RWS) as the “enemy” in the global dolphin protection campaign, “Saddest Dolphins in…
Hardest part about being the man of her dreams is knowing how flawed you are and that one day you may become her worst nightmare. You want to be everything she needs and more but you’ve never actually been that… You fear letting Love down When you know they’ve been hurt, the last thing you want to be is another disappointment. Sometimes it’s easier to just distance yourself. Of course what’s “easier” isn’t always what’s best for us. Seems selfish, irrational, & like you’re running from a good thing. But fear can sometimes convince you that they’re better off without you Doesn’t make it right, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less real. Tough dating a woman you know deserves the world after you’ve let a good one down before…You know she’s incredible and that she deserves the very best of you, but you fear not being able to give it to her. Some say “man up” and just deal with it. In some cases I agree because you don’t want to see her go, but fears are still present. You want to be that feeling she never wants to forget not that guy it hurts to remember So you’re forced to be vulnerable. You gotta share that all you know is dysfunction and hope she cares to help you sort thru it all.
We can’t assume things about “all” based on our experiences with a few. Just bc one didn’t value it doesn’t mean another won’t treasure it. I’m not making excuses for fear either, I’m just understanding the power of it’s presence and how it affects some men.
Is it downright neglect, apathy or ignorance? I can’t fathom the idea that there are people who reached a certain age and don’t take care of their surroundings, the environment and cleanliness. It is disappointing that it is easy for some to litter and pollute. It’s never too late to care and do something about our actions.
“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life…You give them a piece of you. They didn’t ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like ‘maybe we should be just friends’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It’s a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.”—Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones
Yeb Sano says devastation left by Typhoon Haiyan has left him determined to fight for ambitious climate deal in Warsaw
“We have not seen any money from the rich countries to help us to adapt … We cannot go on like this. It cannot be a way of life that we end up running always from storms,” he says.
Sano acknowledges it is currently hard to attribute single events to climate change. IPCC climate scientists currently have ‘low confidence’ that the intensity of tropical cyclones has increased since the 1950s, although they believe it is ‘likely’ they will increase in the late 21st century.
Instead, he points to Bopha and Haiyan as a warning of what is to come for coastal communities in South Asia.
“The physics is quite simple, that if you have warming oceans it will generate storms, especially intense storms,” he says.
“Climate change means we face a future where super typhoons will no longer be one-in-one hundred year events… and we refuse to accept a process that will allow a future where Super Typhoons would happen every year, and that’s what happening.”
