Oriental Small Clawed Otter Searching deep in the lake the Oriental Small Clawed Otter, when hungry, hunts for its snack. Once he has found it, he captures it with his forefeet. Using his upper teeth he is able to bite right through the exoskeleton of the crab, enjoying the juicy tender meat. After he is finished he goes back to his den made of driftwood. There he grooms his greyish-brown fur to keep its insulating qualities. He is about medium sized, 28 to 30 inches and his tail would be about 12 inches long. His head is a little flat and his eyes are located towards the middle of his face. When it communicates the otter has over 12 vocalizations, and they use some of them to mark territory. They love to swim and play with each other. After a long day of swimming the otter would roll on the ground or rub on a log to dry themselves. The Oriental Small Clawed Otter can last up to 6-8 minutes under water, so hunting for food is easy. Their forefeet are helpful because they use them to capture their food and “Their hind feet says wildlife explorer states, “Are used for swimming.” “Their eyes stay shut for 40 days after birth,” states the wildlife explorer. According to the wildlife explorer, “Their number of young is 1-6 but usually 1-2.” One of the most interesting facts is that if several otters are swimming in one straight line with their backs out of the water their backs can be mistaken for the humps of a sea monster. Its genus and species is “Aonyx Cinera” that is also the species for the African Otter. Although they are the same species the African otter is much bigger, and weighs up to 75lb and just like the Oriental Small Clawed Otter and the Asian Otter they all have white markings on their faces, chests and throat. The Oriental Small Clawed Otter is one otter that loves to swim and definitely loves to snack on…...

Why Otters Are Good

...Pacific Ocean in North America and Asia. The sea otter spends most of its time in the water but, in some locations, comes ashore to sleep or rest. Sea otters have webbed feet, water-repellent fur to keep them dry and warm, and nostrils and ears that close in the water. Sea otters often float at the water's surface, lying on their backs in a posture of serene repose. They sleep this way, often gathered in groups. Otters sometimes float in forests of kelp, or giant seaweed, in which they entangle themselves to provide anchorage in the swirling sea. Otters will place the rock on their chests, and repeatedly smash the shellfish against it until it breaks open to reveal the tasty meal inside. They also dine on such aquatic creatures as sea urchins, crabs, squid, octopuses, and fish. Sea otters are the only otters to give birth in the water. Mothers nurture their young while floating on their backs. They hold infants on their chests to nurse them, and quickly teach them to swim and hunt. Sea otters are meticulously clean. After eating, they wash themselves in the ocean, cleaning their coat with their teeth and paws. They have good reason to take care of their coats—it helps them to remain waterproof and insulated against the cold. Sea otters have thick under fur that traps air to form an insulating layer against the chilly waters (they have no insulating fat). This coat is invaluable to otters, but it has worth to some humans as well. Sea otters were hunted for their fur to the......

The Small and the Many

...Asia Foust The Small and the Many Many people may think that the bigger the farming company is, the better they are. However, others think the bigger they are, the more damage they cause to the environment and the economy. There are so many different reasons for both of these opinions, but smaller farms are much more beneficial and practical than bigger, more elaborate, farms. As Bill McKibben says, “We’re moving, if we’re lucky, from the world of few and big to the world of small and many. We’ll either head there purposefully or we’ll be dragged kicking, but we’ve reached one of those moments when tides reverse” (McKibben). Smaller and more abundant farms are helpful because they can create more jobs, can yield more crops than bigger farms, are better for the environment, and they can produce healthier and fresher products to more people. The smaller farms are more abundant compared to the big industrial farms, which means the amount of transportation is less. This means that they do not have to use as much, or any, chemicals on their crops because the products will not be sitting around in boxes for as long as they do when they have to travel further. Bigger farms use chemicals to preserve the longevity of the crop and to terminate anything that would come in the way of the crop growing out its full capability. These chemicals are meant to kill things, and are potentially harmful to people if they are ingested in larger quantities. The lack of pesticides and......

A Small Place

...A Small Place Essay British colonization is what led to the corruption of Antigua and society through the eyes of Jamaica Kincaid. The book shows the significance of the arrival of outside countries and people and the effect it had on Caribbean islands. Through Kincaid’s various views throughout the book, perspectives range from viewpoints of tourists traveling to the Caribbean to viewing society through the eyes of Antiguan natives; even through the eyes of Jamaica Kincaid herself as a young child during the colonization periods. Kincaid’s sour tone throughout the text shows her passion for her home country and its history as she feels Antigua has been and is corrupted by the outside presence of other nations. A majority of A Small Place is expressed through Kincaid’s personal point of view and, consequently, is written in the first-person. However, she tends to write in the second-person point of view when she’s referring to tourists and even early English colonists. Her constant use of “you” in her writing makes her claims more personal and strong in distinguishing the dislike for what the tourists represent. Her tone even gets more aggressive at times. “Do you ever try to understand why people like me cannot get over the past, cannot forgive and cannot forget? There is the Barclay’s Bank. The Barclay brothers are dead. The human beings they traded, the human beings who to them were only commodities, are dead.” (Kincaid 27) Her claims towards the tourists......

Sea Otters

...Sea Otters Article #1 This aquatic member of the weasel family is found along the coasts of the Pacific Ocean in North America and Asia. The sea otter spends most of its time in the water but, in some locations, comes ashore to sleep or rest. Sea otters have webbed feet, water-repellent fur to keep them dry and warm, and nostrils and ears that close in the water. Sea otters often float at the water's surface, lying on their backs in a posture of serene repose. They sleep this way, often gathered in groups. Otters sometimes float in forests of kelp, or giant seaweed, in which they entangle themselves to provide anchorage in the swirling sea. These aquatic otters do more than sleep while floating on their backs. They are often seen with a clam or mussel and a rock that has been deftly snared from the ocean floor. Otters will place the rock on their chests, and repeatedly smash the shellfish against it until it breaks open to reveal the tasty meal inside. They also dine on such aquatic creatures as sea urchins, crabs, squid, octopuses, and fish. Sea otters are the only otters to give birth in the water.

...in textiles and tribal weavings, and antique rugs and carpets (Peter Pap Oriental Rugs Incorporated). He operates a business by the name Peter Pap Oriental Rugs Incorporated. Peter is in his own level dealing in the most valuable rugs in the United States. His customers are mostly well off individuals. At present, Peter Pap operates a highly profitable business but sales have from recently been declining consistently day by day. The reason behind this decline is the absence of financial, technological, and administrative skills aspects of his business (O’Reilly 1). He himself lacks all these skills. His business is a one-man show. That is, he spends 80 percent of his time doing things he should be delegating to others. Peter Pap is an expert in educating people on Oriental rugs, appraising, and buying but he spends most of his time performing technological and administrative tasks (O’Reilly 1). Analysis The major concern of the Peter Pap Oriental Rugs Incorporated is the declining sales. Pap would rather follow up a new client willing to purchase a $5000 rug than addressing an old customer interested in a $250,000 antique (O’Reilly 2). Pap’s business has many customers many of whom he has lost or failed to collect their e-mail addresses. Altogether, Peter Pap Oriental Rugs Incorporated lacks a working online marketing program (O’Reilly 2). Alternatives and Conclusions The popularity of Peter Pap Oriental Rugs Incorporated has been the past efforts of Pap. Nevertheless, a......

Oriental Ideology & East Asian Economic Growth

...Asia, which they refer to as “oriental ideology”. Oriental is connotation of or the characteristic of the bio-geographic region including southern Asia and the Malay Archipelago as far as the Philippines, Borneo and Java (http://lookwayup.com). It is the same as “Asian” and “Eastern”. For people of South and East Asian ancestry the term ‘Asian’ is preferred to ‘Oriental’. According to http://education.yahoo.com, Asian is now strongly preferred in place of Oriental for persons native to Asia or descended from an Asian people. The real problem with Oriental is more likely its connotations stemming from an earlier era when Europeans viewed the regions east of the Mediterranean as exotic lands full of romance and intrigue, the home of despotic empires and inscrutable customs. Orientalism is the study of Near and Far Eastern societies and cultures, languages and peoples by Western scholars. It can also refer to the imitation or depiction of aspects of Eastern cultures in the West by writers, designers and artists. The hubs of strong traditions that are easily visible lie in East Asia. The following countries are commonly seen as located in geographically East Asia: People's Republic of China (China), Hong Kong and Macau (a special administrative region of the People's Republic of China), Republic of China (Taiwan), Japan, Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea), Republic of Korea (South Korea), and Mongolia (Wikipedia 2007).

Small Business

... TITLE: SMALL BUSINESS ASARE, NANA 19 JUL 2015 MBA 610 There are three types of small entities. • "Small businesses" are defined in section 3 of the Small Business Act, 15 U.S.C. . 632, and in the SBA's regulations at 13 C.F.R. . 121.201 (2002). 5 U.S.C. . 601(3). • "Small organizations" are any not-for-profit enterprises that are independently owned and operated and not dominant in their fields (for example, private hospitals and educational institutions). 5 U.S.C. . 601(4). • "Small governmental jurisdictions" are governments of cities, counties, towns, townships, villages, school districts, or special districts with a population of less than 50,000. The size standard used by the Small Business Administration to define small businesses varies by industry; however, the SBA uses the "fewer than 500 employees" cut off when making an across-the-board classification. (A large percentage of small entities are not covered by EEOC laws, because they employ fewer than 15 employees.) If EEOC wishes to use a different definition for any of these types of small entities for purposes of an RFA analysis, it must consult with the Office of Advocacy at the SBA, publish the alternative definition for comment and publish the final definition in the Federal Register. If EEOC seeks to change the definition of small business in a general rulemaking context, it should contact the Administrator of the SBA. In accessing the Equal......

...recognize that other people face the same problems that you do. Providing a product or service that solves those problems offers the same potentials for a promising business. 3.6 Notice what is missing: Sometime entrepreneurs spot viable business opportunities by noticing what is missing. The first step is to determine whether a market for the missing product or service actually exists (perhaps the reason it does not exist is that there is no market potentials), which is one of the objectives of building a business plan. 4. THE BENEFIT OF OWING A SMALL BUSINESS (Page 13 to Page 15) Survey show that owners of small businesses believe they work harder, earn more money, and are happier than if they worked for a large company. Before launching any business venture, every potentials entrepreneur should consider the benefits of owning a small business. 4.1 Opportunity to gain control over your own destiny: Entrepreneurs cite controlling their own destinies as one the benefits of owning their own businesses.

I have gotten some reading done while waiting, riding, and eat- ing. I have prepared only key elements for the committee meeting.”) For this circumstance, I did write step by step which was my method to overcome this kind of stress. Cause I have many stuff to do, so I need to have a plan. I need to know which is priority step (task) that I should do first. I need to do small things first. All the small things is finished, so I will have the large things. 6. What small thing should I feel good about as I think about how I have coped or will cope with this major stressor? (For example, “I have accomplished a lot when the pressure has been on in the past. I have been able to use what I had time to prepare to its best advantage.”) What I feel good is when I can finish a small part of the whole thing.

Oriental Institute

...Brandon Flores 1/29/2011 Humanities Oriental Institute When I went to the “Oriental Institute”, I saw and got to experience a lot of different cultures and antiques from very old civilizations. Being in those very rooms and getting to see firsthand how these cultures had lived and survived in those times was astonishing. One of my favorite exhibits I really enjoyed was the Mesopotamian empire exhibit. I found it so fascinating because a lot of the pots and designs from that time I have already seen in my hometown in Mexico and also because this is when cities began to come about. What I also learned about this civilization was that it rapidly spread throughout Southeast Asia and Europe and was made up of three main periods. The periods were the lower Paleolithic period, the middle Paleolithic period, and the upper Paleolithic period. This empire life was similar to many parts of the northeast in this period. Another thing I found fascinating about Mesopotamian life is the importance of music in this culture. What music did was tell stories of gods or of important events that happened. It became a means of passing important information down as time passed. What I also found to be very interesting was the “Laws of Hammurabi”. These laws were basically like the term “an eye for an eye” because through each law you are paying the price for a misdeed. Finally, what I found to be the most interesting object in this gallery was the “Human-Headed Winged Bull”. This colossal...

From a sales of just over Rs24 million in 2000, during his first year of service itself, he could raise it to over Rs 40 million. Now browsing through the figures, he found that in the last nine months (Jan-Sep[2])the sales have reached over Rs 68 million[3]. He knew his strategy worked…Accepting both small and big orders had made this dramatic growth possible. He is looking forward to the next review meeting.
