5 Symptoms that Look Like Depression that are not

KSHB shared an article about depression. They covered 5 other conditions that resemble depression. Ask yourself if you or a family/friend may have one of these conditions before assuming they are depressed. If none of these conditions are a fit for you or your family/friend use the Suicide National Hotline.  Their number is 1-800-273 TALK (8255). Many states and cities have their own Hotline number that would be able to help find resources for people that need more comprehensive help or are searching for it.

Last Sea World Orca Calf Has Been Born

KMBC wrote an article about the recent Killer Whale cafe born at one of Sea Worlds locations.  This being the last one being born in captivity makes this some special.  While being able to see something like this is great for science and for visitors, keeping such big animals in small enclosures is not great. Much of the new regulations were brought on by activist and the movie Blackfish, which aired on CNN. It is a shame that possibly in my lifetime people will not get to see these animals up close. But it may be for the best they do not have to be confined to such small encloseres. 

Killer Whale Sub Species

In the wake of hearing about Sea World’s star attraction Tilikum‘s death I got the urge to read up on killer whales again.   Tilikum was made famous by the movie Blackfish witches aired on CNN.  In which a documentary team made a documentary about having an animal such as a an orca in such a small space and safety of the trainers that work with them and use to get in the pools with them.  Everyone likes to see animals up close, especially ones as big and magestic as an orca but it would be nice to see them in bigger and more natural habitats than the ones they are in at Sea World. 

Killer Whales have different sub species all around the world. Many of them are different in size and colorings. Worth reading up on. I for one use to love seeing them up close at sea world and wanted to actually pet one as a child.
