The great thing about having a dolphin stuffed animal, is that you never have to leave your house ‘in search’ of the real thing. With a dolphin stuffed animal to call your own, you are given the daily pleasure of seeing its friendly, smiling face whenever you want to.
One might not think that dolphins are an endangered species, given it’s not the animal that makes it into the news with disturbing stories of its near extinction. However, there is a species of dolphin Maui dolphin’s which could disappear altogether unless more steps are taken to protect it.
Maui dolphins are considered to be the rarest marine animal in the world with just 111 individuals left. They can only be found living along the west coast of North Island in New Zealand. Thanks to fishing nets and the dolphins inability to detect the mesh [of the nets], over the last few decades, their population has been dying off following their numbered entanglements and drownings inside those very same nets. The Maui dolphins South Island cousin Hector’s dolphins are also in danger, given their population numbers have dropped from 26,000 in the 1970s to 7, 270 today.
A video surveillance system can be an integral aspect of residential security systems. It affords you the convenience of seeing who is at your door or on your property from a safe distance. With remote access, it allows to you to respond to an alarm while you are out by actually being able to see the event. If a crime does occur, residences with security cameras are statistically more likely to achieve closure and limit the overall damages.Configured with Pets in MindIt is crucial to account for all family pets while planning and installing residential security. Consider that video surveillance often works hand in hand with motion sensors, and pets can wreak havoc on a motion-based system that is not optimized. This is true for other aspects of a home security system as well, so when discussing the system and the service with the provider, emphasize these concerns so they can be accommodated.Many Benefits for Pet OwnersIncluding pets in the residential security discussion in the same way that you include your family members also provides many advantages to you and for your pets. It is important to consider how a family can use video surveillance and other security components to protect it pets better rather than just to consider those pets in the light of a being potential problem areas.Check in on Pets Home AlonePerhaps the greatest benefit of Web-enabled security cameras for a pet owner is that the person can monitor the pets from their desk at work or from a smartphone while sitting in traffic on the way home. You get great peace of mind from the knowledge that you can simply check in on them whenever you’d like, and if there is an emergency, you will be better situated to take action.Restricted AreasOne of the great concerns with leaving pets home alone are restricted areas, such as a cabinet under the sink where you maintain all of your household poisons. With a proper system, you will receive notification when the area becomes compromised, and the system can be set to provide you a feed of that compromised area automatically, which will help you to take the appropriate action.Monitor Environmental ConditionsAnother advantage of a pet-minded security system is that you can monitor environmental conditions. Consider an emergency where the air conditioning has failed in the summer and dogs and cats are stuck inside the home. These types of sensors aren’t limited to just dogs and cats, however, and you can even use them to monitor the water temperature for a fish tank or monitor the heat level for a terrarium.Remote AccessRemote access is a common feature on modern security systems, and it allows you to not only access but to manipulate various components of security and home automation. If, for instance, you’ve received an alarm that the home is too hot or cold, then you could adjust the thermostat from any Internet-connected computer or mobile device. Access opportunities include lighting, entry points, entertainment devices and custom equipment, such as a pet feeder.Help is on the WayThe other advantage of having a robust security system that accounts for your pets is that in the event of a real emergency, you can rest assured that help is on the way. You can even coordinate with the monitoring station so that they know exactly who to call in the event of a pet emergency.
History Radio origins KOIN began in 1925 as a radio station, KOIN-AM. It became part of the Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS), now known as the CBS Radio Network, in 1930. During the golden years of radio, KOIN-AM was one of Portland’s major radio stations, with an extensive array of local programming, including live music from its own studio orchestra. As a CBS radio affiliate, KOIN-AM was the local home for CBS radio network programs such as the CBS World News Roundup, Lux Radio Theater, and Suspense (KOIN’s own history page has omissions and errors in its early days. KOIN radio signed on the air as KQP on November 9, 1925 and changed call sign to KOIN on April 12, 1926. KOIN became a CBS Radio affiliate on September 1, 1929. From: Craig Adams, radio historian). Television station KOIN-TV began operating on October 15, 1953 as Portland’s first VHF TV station. At the time, it was owned by Mount Hood Radio and Television, a group that included Advance Publications, owner and publisher of The (Portland) Oregonian; local investors and Marshall Field’s department stores. The Oregonian also owned KOIN radio (AM 970 and 101.1 FM). Eventually, Marshall Field sold its stake to Advance. KOIN-AM (now KCMD) and KOIN-FM (now KUFO) were sold off when Lee Enterprises purchased KOIN from Mt Hood broadcasting in October 1977. A year later a production company MIRA Mobile Television was founded. On February 28, 1971, both transmitter towers used by KOIN-FM and KOIN-TVhe 1,000-foot main tower and the 700-foot auxiliary towerollapsed during an ice and wind storm. The two KOIN (AM) towers, located on the same property, were not damaged. Nine days later, on March 9, 1971, KOIN-FM and KOIN-TV returned to the air when a temporary tower was erected on the site of the collapsed auxiliary tower. During those nine days off the air, CBS programming was provided to the Portland market (and, by extension, most of Oregon) by independent station KVDO-TV of Salem. (Oregon Public Broadcasting later purchased KVDO and moved the station to Bend as KOAB-TV. During the 1970s, KOIN had a few locally-produced programs on the air, including KOIN Kitchen (cooking show), and public affairs programs such as News Conference Six and Northwest Illustrated.) In 1976, KOIN-TV became the second TV station in the Portland market (after KPTV) to broadcast Portland Trail Blazers basketball games. Selected Trail Blazer games aired on KOIN-TV until 1996. KOIN-AM was the first flagship station of the Trail Blazers’ radio network, beginning in the inaugural 1970-71 season, and ending when the station was sold shortly after the Trail Blazers won the 1976-77 National Basketball Association (NBA) championship. By the 1980s, one of KOIN’s past general managers – Richard M. “Mick” Schafbuch – served one term in 1981 as President of the CBS Network Affiliates Group. During KOIN-TV’s 30th anniversary week in 1983, the station aired classic CBS programming from the 1950s and 1960s. By this time, the station had moved into its new location at KOIN Center. In 1984, the station aired the Japanese program From Oregon With Love. In October 2000, the Lee Enterprises television group, including KOIN, was purchased by Emmis Communications. On January 27, 2006, Emmis sold KOIN (along with KHON-TV/Honolulu, KSNT/Topeka, and KSNW/Wichita) to Montecito Broadcast Group for $259 million. The KOIN Center is the third-tallest skyscraper in Portland. Due to a dispute over fees, Comcast did not offer KOIN in HDTV for over two years after it started offering other local channels in HDTV. After Montecito took ownership, Comcast started carrying KOIN in high-definition on February 28, 2006. KOIN was also in a dispute with DirecTV over HD broadcast, as both sides claimed the other to be the problem.As of August 2008 KOIN HD is now carried on DirecTV. KOIN updated its website in September 2006 as part of a partnership with WorldNow. KOIN expects the switch to lead to over $1 million in revenue during its first year; the switch was characterized by Bob Singer, KOIN’s general sales manager, as a “creative new way” to boost revenue for a station with a “somewhat average ratings position.” On July 24, 2007, Montecito announced the sale of all of its stations (KOIN, plus KHON-TV in Honolulu and its satellites, KSNW in Wichita and its satellites, and KSNT in Topeka) to New Vision Television. The sale closed on November 1, 2007. In March 2008, KOIN relaunched its website through Newport Television subsidiary Inergize Digital Media, replacing the old World Now-powered site. The Web sites of several of its sister stations in other markets also joined the Inergize Digital Network in late December 2008 and early January 2009. On December 30, 2008, one of the 15 guy wires on the main transmitter tower snapped, putting the tower in danger of collapsing. (As with the 1971 tower collapse, this incident followed a prolonged snow and ice storm.) The Portland Police Bureau evacuated about 500 local residents and closed several roads around the tower, including a portion of Skyline Boulevard, the main north-south road through the West Hills of Portland. At first, officials feared that the wire itself — which is over 1000 feet long and weighs several tons — had snapped. If the wire had snapped, it would take several weeks to manufacture and install a replacement. Upon inspection it was revealed that one of the high frequency insulators incorporated into the guy wire assembly had shattered. Repair crews replaced the insulator by 4:00 p.m. the next day and the surrounding neighborhood was reopened to residents and car traffic. KOIN had to pay $1,500 to the FCC. News Operation This section is written like an advertisement. Please help rewrite this section from a neutral point of view. (February 2010) On February 1, 2007, KOIN became the first Portland station to broadcast its daily newscasts in widescreen. According to Oregon Media Insiders, during Montecito’s ownership of KOIN, its local news ratings declined in all time periods; among the four stations producing local news in the Portland area, KOIN had the greatest loss in audience share. For the first time in ten years, KOIN finished in first position in the 11 pm news in the May 2008 NSI sweeps. A strong performance from CBS prime certainly helped. KOIN News 6 at 11nlike a year earlier when it lost over twenty percent of its CBS lead-in shareeld its prime time share throughout its 11 pm newscast in the May 2008 NSI sweeps. In January 2008, KOIN’s owners, New Vision Television, fired news director Jeff Alan and replaced him with Lynn Heider. As a result, KOIN was forced to drop their slogan “Bringing News Home” because Jeff Alan had trademarked it under his name in 2000 before he worked at KOIN. Under new News Director Lynn Heider and long-time Creative Services Director Rodger O’Connor, KOIN News 6 at 11 increased its household ratings from May 2007 to May 2008 by twelve percent and its household share by nineteen percent. It increased its household ratings by 30% from February 2008 to May 2008 and its household share by 33%. According to General Manager Christopher Sehring, “The defining moment for KOIN News came in the third week of the sweeps. Up until then, we were having a strong ratings run against some terrific competition. Unfortunately, we then lost two straight nightsnd I was worried that these losses might shake our new-found confidence. Fortunately, our team roared back on Thursday night, delivering an 8 household rating by increasing Without A Trace 19 share lead-in to a 21 share. This type of comeback is indeed the sign of a station that refuses to toss in the towelnd will go a long way to helping us continue New Vision’s plan to reenergize this great operation.” This was the first time in a decade that KOIN has won any newscast. The hard-fought win at 11 pm was particularly impressive since the May Nielsen is the most important sweeps period of the year — and the 11 pm news is considered the most prestigious newscast of the day for the majority of television stations across the nation. On September 9, 2009 KOIN launched a new local program at 4 p.m. called Keep It Local. The show’s goal is to explore local neighborhoods and events that take place in Portland.

Digital television After the analog television shutdown scheduled for June 12, 2009, KOIN remained on its pre-transition channel number, 40 using PSIP to display KOIN’s virtual channel as 6. On June 12, 2009, KOIN stopped transmitting regularly scheduled programming over its analog transmitter. At 7:28 a.m. on that day, the analog signal (also heard at 87.7 FM) began carrying “nightlight mode” programming consisting of English and Spanish language public service announcements regarding the DTV transition. On June 27, 2009, at 7:06 a.m. KOIN stopped playing the nightlight program and played the station’s 25th anniversary special for their final 24 minutes of channel 6 analog; at 7:30 a.m. analog 6 (and 87.7 FM) was gone.

The feeding program of tortoises: what do tortoises eat? With the number of people interested in keeping tortoises as pets, it is important to understand what the life of this animal looks like, how it feeds and other life-sustaining processes. With the number of tortoise varieties, topping 250 ones has the choice on what to take home but here is an insight into their feeding program. nike air max 2016 zwart Most of the tortoises extremely feed on plant material, but it is prudent that even the plant fed comprises all the nutritious elements of a balanced diet, including enough water, carbohydrates, fibers, vitamins and proteins to allow them grow healthy and ill free. However, for the omnivorous tortoises the diet will vary slightly from the common placed herbivores and will essentially include insects, slugs and snails. Tortoises have improved resistance to hunger and so can keep going for a number of days even when they have not been fed. But for the warm periods of the year, the pet should be preferably fed on fresh meat that has been well sliced and mixed with water for easy picking. It is advised that only fresh food be given to them, and any remnants be discarded afterwards. fjällräven kånken Laptop 17 It is important that the diet fed have plenty of calcium, fiber and other minerals while minimizing the quantity of proteins, phosphorous and fats altogether. Tortoises need to be fed once on a daily basis which translates to seven meals in a week, each of the meals eaten in thirty minutes time. For domesticated tortoise, one may choose to collect plants from the home garden alternatively built the tortoise its own garden and keeps it outdoors feeding by itself after observing the kind of plants it is fond of eating. Tending for a pet common shrew The common shrew is common in regions of Great Britain and Northern Europe except for Ireland. Shrews have varied measurements at maturity and mostly remain activity, for the most part, of the day, including the night, only taking a few minutes to have rest before embarking on activity. The natural habitats of the common shrew include hedge lands, grasslands and woodlands, with each having defined territories that range between 440 and 750 square yards in area. Most of the shrews guard their territories keenly and may resolve to violent tactics in case of an intrusion. air max pas cher This animal survives well in regions that are cool and humid with forested shades, though they can also cope in regions with different conditions. The housing of a common shrew can be made from cage or make one from a set of boxes with the standard dimensions of 0.3M for the length, 0.45M for the width and 0.25M for the height. The front part can be made of a detachable glass. Goedkoop Adidas Superstar It is also possible to combine two cages to get a single double roomed cage connected with a hole through for more play. The cage should be protected from rain showers using a polythene and birds by use of a net to cover the cage. Nike Air Max TN Femme The common shrew mainly feeds on insects and other meat elements. It should be fed regularly in every period of two to three hours to cater for its feeding needs.
Every pet owner should be prepared in case of emergency with a pet survival kit. These are essential for saving your loved pet in case of a natural disaster or any other type of emergency. You should not take for granted the fact that pets are able to manage on their own in a disaster. While many pets such as cats and dogs manage to protect themselves, from a certain point on, you should be prepared to assist them when a disaster occurs. There are several things you should think about including in a pet survival kit. You can choose to buy a complete homemade kit that generally includes scissors, pads and sterile gauze for wrapping injuries and eyedroppers for liquid medication. You need to add to this kit any other recommendation you may have from your veterinarian. A pet survival kit is also very useful for vacations. Here are some things that should not miss from it. An iodine-based disinfectant chlorhexidine, as these disinfectants have the advantage of being very effective against the majority of germs and do not sting. In case of injuries, make sure you have an adhesive type of bandage as well as sterile gauze and a pair of scissors to cut them. Another important thing is a digital electronic thermometer. Taking the temperature of a dog or cat is similar to the process of taking the temperature of babies, by introducing the metal probe of the thermometer in the entrance of the anus. The normal temperature of a dog or cat is between 38 and 38.5 C. The fact that the muzzle is hot or cold really does not tell you if the animal has a fever or not. Bring with you a pest control treatment (anti-fleas, ticks, sand flies) that you can choose in advance with your veterinarian. He will advise a suitable product according to the different parasites that are potentially present at your vacation destination. Do not forget to apply it on your pet preventively a few days before your departure. Repeat applications on site if necessary. You should also get some bags of Smecta if mild diarrhea occurs and Phosphalugel in case of vomiting. If your pet is sick or nervous during travel, grab a specific treatment on the advice of your veterinarian. Make sure you do not forget a collapsible travel bowl to rehydrate when needed. Above all, make sure you always have with you the telephone number of the regular veterinarian for your pet. Upon arrival at your vacation destination, find out the details for an emergency veterinary service.
