they automatically are drawn to the moonlit water which they rush to. Sadly these turtles all became disoriented due to the lighting he created and the turtles went in circles and all died. Here is a National Geographic video of these little turtles
hatching and rushing to the water- how it is supposed to go.
Helena Sung is ALSO writing a piece on the 'Gone To The Dogs' show at Denise Bibro Fine Art
for Examiner.com which I will alert you to! She said People's Online Magazine is also going to pick this piece up ,which is so exciting! I think my paintings in the show 'Trusty' or 'Best Friend' will be mentioned. The opening is Oct 8th 6-9pm and I hope all of you who are in NYC will come by!
The good news is that criminal charges for cruelty are happening against a filthy factory farm in PA, a main supplier for Land 'o Lakes .It is a violation of Pennsylvania law to neglect animals, deprive sick and injured animals of vet care, and deny animals sanitary shelter. Charges against the farm’s owners have been approved. They would face up to 90 days in jail and $750 in fines if convicted. The bad news of course, is what caused the charges. Here is some footage taken this year of what goes on there. These poor animals have no quality of life to begin with, but when they are not even able to stand anymore they are knifed and shocked in an attempt to force them on their feet. If that doesn't work, they kill them, but only after letting them languish in filth and pain for days. Doncha love it- 'Land o' Lakes'. sounds so pastoral, doesn't it? A bit different from the truth, a dark interior existence in filth, fumes, attached to tubes constantly, calves born & ripped away, and abuse.
Earthbalance is a fabulous alternative!
I highly recommend it. I've tried all their types, with or without soy, olive oil, they all are just as good as butter to me. Soy milk for cereal is great. A soy latte from Starbucks - or Art Cafe, makes my day..this dude agrees.
Once I realized that butter and all milk products contribute heavily to suffering, and that milk has pus in it, I find it easier and easier to avoid it. bleccchhhh. There is more calcium in green leafy veggies than milk- or if you're too brainwashed to believe that,and need it from white liquid, soy milk is all fortified with calcium. The dairy lobby has been the strongest lobby of all, heavily affecting our views through the school systems and food pyramids. The China Study
is a very revealing book on that,(written by PHD T. Colin Campbell) and all other food and health myths surrounding meat and dairy. Must read TV.
