Commons Soi Dog Foundation - Sponsor A Dog or Cat Today See this turtle's miraculous recovery after getting caught in a piece of litter. When it comes to prioritizing environmental concerns, curbing litter isn't exactly at the top of the list. After all, when there are much bigger dangers like harmful emissions, overfishing, and climate change to worry about, how much harm are a few pieces of plastic on the ground really going to do? Just splitting a sixer of Strawberry Crush with my bros. What's the worst that could happen? But there's one turtle that would staunchly disagree with that mindset (or, at least he would if he could talk). Meet Peanut. The red-eared slider was found wandering the St. Peanut re-creating the fateful incident. Even after his rescuers snipped the plastic rings off, Peanut's shell was forever deformed into a figure-8, peanut-y shape (hence his name). These impairments made Peanut an easy target for predators, which meant he was unable to be released back into the wild. Today, Peanut has a home and a job with the State of Missouri. Peanut is ready for his close-up. Peanut rockin' out.

LIlla Gumman Lilla gummans sajt är byggd i WordPress, ett väldigt bra sätt att lätt och snyggt skapa en hemsida. Det finns massor av guider på nätet om hur man startar en hemsida i wordpress, men eftersom det är lite pyssel så tänkte jag att jag skulle göra ytterligare en guide för alla små gummor där ute på Lilla gumman-vis. Här kommer alltså en snabbkurs i hur man startar sin egen hemsida eller blogg. Eftersom det inte är svårt, och jag tror att många bara vill lära sig grunderna, har jag valt att göra det väldigt enkelt. Dels för att inte skrämma bort någon och dels för att ha möjlighet till senare inlägg med fördjupningar. Själv har jag haft hemsidor och bloggar på nätet i tio år och jag reflekterar sällan över att det är något jag kan. 1. För att du ska få din egen adress, eller URL som det också heter, behöver du köpa ett domännamn. Nästan alla hemsidor som jag ansvarar för har Binero som webbhotell, de är väldigt bra på support och det värdesätter jag. 2. 3. Installationen är klar! 4. 5. 6.

Vetamix (111) Saint Francis Wolf Sanctuary Navdanya Tools for Writing: Points of View in Writing There are three different points of view that can be used in writing: first person, second person, and third person. In academic writing, the third person point of view is usually clearer and allows a writer to come across as more credible. Due to this and other reasons, the third person point of view is considered the best in academic writing. First person occurs primarily through the use of the pronoun “I.” This is the point of view used when a writer is writing about himself. Second person involves the use of the pronoun “you” to refer to the reader. All beginning college students should learn how to write well. Notice the shift that occurred from the first sentence, which is written in the third person, to the second sentence, which is written in the second person. Revised: All beginning college students should learn how to write well. Third Person involves directly stating who is being written about without using the words I, me, we, us, or you.
