Nick Bateman Instagram This is definitely a first for any aquarium." Monterey Bay Aquarium/Randy Wilder View Caption + Up to 50 nautiluses will occupy a huge exhibit, with a ceiling-to-floor viewing window. These animals like to hide away safely in their protective shells. Many other cephalopods are equally evasive, desiring to blend into their surroundings for protection and to surprise prey. This can make putting them on display challenging. As Bitondo said, "We're trying to display something that doesnt want to be seen." Monterey Bay Aquarium/Charles Seaborn View Caption + A red octopus' normal color is red or reddish brown, but like many other cephalopods it can change quickly -- in a fraction of a second -- to yellow, brown, white, red or a variety of mottled colors.

It hid in one of moved here the exhibits for a year before being discovered walking across the aquarium's floor in the middle of the night. The discovery helped to explain why so many crabs had gone missing during that period of time.

The Gilmer Mirror - Jiminy Cricket

As you might imagine, things don't quite go exactly as planned. For Waids Princess Leia, the aftermath of the Death Star battle gives the heroine time to reflect on all she's lost, the writer explained. Rather than choose to remain the princess of nothing, she resolves to find a way to preserve the memory and culture of her race, and that's our story. (Waid said that his aim with the series was to demonstrate that Carrie Fishers character is easily the most layered, most complex and multifaceted character in the entire Star Wars mythos.) That same destruction of the Death Star has an entirely different impact on Darth Vader, turning him into what Gillen described as the sole survivor of the greatest military disaster of all time inside the Galactic Empire. I see my run continuing to the start of Empire, he explained. It bridges the gap, and explores all the real emotional meat in there. To state the obvious, we never see Darth realize that X-wing pilot who was strong in the force is actually his son. That's a huge thing. That Darth actually starts Empire seemingly in a stronger position in the Empire than in [the first movie] is also telling. Although the series will interrelate to some degree If you read all the books, you'll be able to see how they interact, where they cross paths and whatnot. But at the same time, I think you could read any one of them by itself and get a complete story, Aaron said each of the three titles will have a different tone and ambition. Cassaday likens the core title to the original movie: Im not looking at this as an addition to the core stories of Star Wars and Empire, rather my approach is that this is gospel as if this was an in-between movie, he said. Were connecting the dots that are the first two films.

Jiminy stands alone, a giant of a cartoon cricket, dominating the world of cricketdome with no competition. Most of us were introduced to Jiminy Cricket by one of his many appearances for Disney on their flagship television show which held down the early Sunday evening time slot. The dapper little insect was all class, in a world of cartoon characters who frequently displayed questionable manners. He dressed well, and behaved well. Jiminy Cricket is wise. He uses his wisdom to guide us and others in our thinking. His is always the voice of reason, and of hope. He was designed to be a conscience. "When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are. When you wish upon a star your dreams come true!" The intrepid cricket sang his songs with such joy and heart.

Venezuelan Ex-intelligence Head Faces Drug Chrges In U.s - Yahoo News

Disney to offer special ticket, room prices for military | Theme Parks - WESH Home

Venezuela blamed Dutch authorities for the arrest of Carvajal, who ran military intelligence between 2004 and 2009 during the government of late socialist leader Hugo Chavez. Local media said Carvajal was arrested on Wednesday night and was due to be flown to the United States, where he is wanted on suspicion of drug crimes and helping Colombia's Marxist FARC guerrillas. In an May 2013 indictment unsealed Thursday, Carvajal is accused of assisting Colombia's North Valley Cartel, including the late Wilber Varela, alias "Jabon", to ship cocaine from Venezuela between 2004 and 2008, while bribing to high-ranking military and law enforcement officials. According to local media, Venezuela had been trying to accredit Carvajal as consul to its diplomatic mission on Aruba, a former Dutch colony which now has autonomy but remains part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. "Venezuela has activated all diplomatic mechanisms to correct this grave violation of international law," the statement said, calling on the Netherlands to free Carvajal or face a "deterioration" in relations. Neither U.S. nor Dutch diplomats in Caracas could be immediately contacted for further information or comment on the case. Thursday was a national holiday in Venezuela. An attorney for Palmeri-Bacchi couldnt be reached on Thursday. McTurk is thought to still be Venezuela and along with Palmeri-Bacchi was declared a fugitive in late 2013.

Our last evening in Central America was truly spectacular, including mojito making lessons (with a non-alcoholic cocktail option for the teens!), a delicious farewell dinner and lively regional music. We even enjoyed a live performance from local dancers dressed in the traditional wardrobe of Guanacaste in Costa Rica. Best of all, the performance was capped off with a dance lesson for the entire group! But, what truly made our universal studios orlando vacation packages adventure so remarkable was our Adventure Guides Ron (or, as we called him, ?Ponce de le Ron?) and Frankie (with his trusty sidekick Teddy). It was these guys who really made the trip magical! From leading us through the rainforest and keeping us entertained during rain storms, to feeding us, guiding us, sharing stories of the local culture and filling us all with laughter, Frankie and Ron went above and beyond to make this an adventure we?ll always remember. Thank you for following along on my Adventures by Disney journey this past week. I hope you enjoyed hearing about my Costa Rican adventure as much as I enjoyed sharing my stories (and photos)!

Houston Family About To Walk Coast To Coast In Girl's Memory | Abc13.com

ABC's Paula Faris gets weekend anchor job - Yahoo News

They will home school their children along the way, teaching them more than math and reading. "It's important for me to do it for (Julia) because I know she had a tough time during cancer and now i want to return the favor," said Jonathan. "So I'm happy to do it for her." "It's probably the most difficult thing I'll ever do," said Julia's sister, Jenna. "But we're team JuCan and we're in this fight together." They're goal is $413,000, then establishing a footprint in Houston for families just like theirs is -- fighting cancer. "Our desire is to go to the happiest place on earth where dreams come true," said Jonathan. "And our dream is to see a cure for pediatric cancer." It is fitting that Julia's mother says she was Tinkerbell on earth, sprinkling pixie dust before leaving too soon; fitting that Julia lost her battle while on her Make-a-Wish trip to Disney World a year ago, taking her final steps in what would be her family's first. "My son, and his family, what they're about orlando vacation to do is one of the largest steps of faith I've ever witnessed," said Julia's grandfather, David Cobb. The family is getting sponsors along the way. They're meeting with other families coping with cancer in towns across the U.S.

I wonder what their salary is like? Also good thing its all equal focus on the stars because i cant find the Hilary Duff in the room (eg. Debby, Laura, Dove, etc.) No Wonder Hilary Duff is coming back to music #2 Jenna @ 10:51 pm on 07/20/2014 @ John : Its just supposed to be a fun thing where Disney stars can get together and sing a beloved Disney movie song. I agree that they made a sad song too happy, but it is what it is they obviously didnt want to make a music video like they did when they did Circle of Life, A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes, etc. If you wanted to be technical, Jordan Fisher is the only one who appears as if he can actually sing. Maybe if they had a few more Raven-Symones it wouldve been better. Back in the early 2000swhen Raven, Orlando Brown, Anneliese Van Der Pol, Kyla Pratt, Christy Carlson Ramano, ect were all onmost of them were professional singers so the overall songs had much more power. Most of the new Disney Channel stars are just ok singers. Even still, this was a fun little video.

Show Your Diy Disney Side: Disney Parks Guide Map Photo Mat

DYS706413 If a picture says a thousand words, I say a picture frame can say a thousand more. In this new ? Show Your DIY Disney http://elvirechantal.blog.com/ Side ,? I?m making quick and easy photo mats using Disneyland Resort tickets and guide maps. As much as I love sharing pictures with friends on social media, there?s something special about good ol? unfiltered, un-hashtagged photo prints. What better way to put these beauties on display than with a unique photo mat? I used Disney Parks tickets and maps because they?re bright and colorful (Plus, it?s a great way to show your Disney Side ). If you have the materials, it?s fun to theme your mat to your photo ? admission tickets for a concert photo, a street map for a road-trip snapshot, leftover gift wrap for a birthday photo ? the options are endless! Supplies: Any decorative paper (I used my old park tickets and a guide map, but any other decorative paper will work) Picture frames (I used 8? x 10? and 4? x 6? frames) nullCraft knife Your favorite photos (I used a 4? x 6? photo for the bigger frame and wallet-sized photo for the smaller, but you can use whatever sizes you?d like) Step 1: Take the picture frame apart, separating the frame, cardboard backing and glass. Step 2: Lay the guide map or decorative paper out flat over a tabletop. Tip: Since we?ll be using our craft knife on this surface, make sure to protect your tabletop! A thick paper bag or some cardboard will do. Step 3: Cut your desired paper to fill the frame (you can use the glass as a guide). This will form your photo map. Tip: If using park tickets instead of a guide map or large decorative paper, you might not need to cut anything at all! Skip to Step 5. Step 4: Place the photo over the center of the photo mat. Using the craft knife, cut out the center of the mat using the photo as a size guide. Step 5: Place the photo face-up in the center of the picture frame and place the photo mat (or neatly arranged park tickets) on top of (or around) the photo. UPDATE 7/16/14: I wanted to share this great tip from my fellow cast member, Gray, who works at Disney?s Animal Kingdom Lodge ? ?As a photo preservationist myself, I would like to suggest that you only use copies of photos and never the originals, as the tickets and maps are acidic and will degrade photos over time.? Thanks, Gray! Step 6: Carefully place the glass on top to lock everything into place. How do you ?Show your DIY Disney Side?? Tell us in the comments!

It was like going to a .. [read more] fun some place you really enjoyed, he said. The best part about that job was just seeing families. Some family you knew had saved up literally for a decade to come there and spend a few days. Just to see them having fun and to see the, you know, look on the childrens faces when they get to see, you know, Prince Charming or one of the princesses or you know, riding Barnstormer or anything, or any of the rides or just walking around and maybe running into Mickey. It was just, that was the best part, just seeing kids glow and seeing their heroes. I just enjoyed that so much. Asked why he had a sexually laced chat with people he thought were a father and 14-year-old girl, he had an explanation. I was trying to get someone safe, Kingsolver said.

Neopolitan pizzas, by the way, are pizzas in the classic style of Naples, Italy, with simple tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella.

And you?ll find classic Italian favorites: chicken breast alla Parmagiana with tagliatelle pasta; shrimp with garlic, capers and anchovy butter with polenta; whole roasted fish with roasted vegetables; baked lasagna; grilled steak; slow-cooked lamb shank with polenta; and eggplant rollatini.

Man's Fingertips Severed on Disney World Ride - Injured

on July 11, 2014 11:10 AM A tourist's fingertips were severed after an accident on Walt Disney World's Pirates of the Caribbean ride Thursday, with many legal questions yet to be answered. The injured man, a UK resident whose name has not been released, lost the tips of his ring and pinky fingers on his right hand. According to the Orlando Sentinel, the injury occurred after the victim was holding on to the outside of the boat during the ride. Was the man properly warned, and should Disney cover the damage? Keep Your Hands Inside the Ride Although amusement park warnings may seem like white noise after about the 12th time or so on Space Mountain, they serve a very important legal function. A Disney spokeswoman told the Sentinel that on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, guests are warned to "keep hands and feet inside the ride." The queuing area also contains signs that alert guests to "remain seated with hands, arms, feet and legs inside vehicle." Operators of amusement park rides most likely owe a duty to riders to properly warn them of the safest way to enjoy the ride. It's currently unclear whether the injured rider heard or disregarded the audio and printed warnings on the Disney ride, but the strength of his future claim against the park may depend on whether a court finds him negligent. Comparative Fault in Fla. Disney World, which houses the finger-slicing Pirates of the Caribbean ride, may be subject to Florida's laws on comparative fault . In Florida, and some other states, if a person suing for damages is found to be negligent, each party is only held responsible for the portion of the damage related to his or her own fault.

New Hidden Mickey Pins Arriving At Disney Parks In July 2014

HMP865965Now that summer has arrived disney world hotel and ticket packages at Disney Parks , guests will soon find new Hidden Mickey pins at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts. These unique pins will be distributed to cast members to use for trading with guests by late July 2014. You may recall that we typically release two different waves of pins a year (the first wave this year was introduced back in February ). Here is a closer look at what guests can expect to trade in the coming months. Cast members at Disneyland Resort will soon receive an assortment of 30 different pins to use for trading with guests. The image above is a checklist to help you identify the new pins coming to California. As a reminder, Hidden Mickey pins typically measure about 1.25-inches and contain the phrase ?Hidden Mickey Pin? on the back of the pin. I think my favorite series features Disney Birds (I?m partial to birds, especially ones that are orange ). The special thing about this series is that there will be five different Disney bird pins found at Walt Disney World Resort that complement the pins at Disneyland Resort. The ?Villainous Sidekicks? collection will also feature complementary pins. The image above shows the 30 pins that will be distributed to cast members at Walt Disney World Resort. The series that caught my eye in this collection is the character themed MagicBands. Chaser pins will also be included in this new wave for 2014. These silver-colored pins are rarer to find compared to their full color counterparts. Which pins do you want to trade? Please share in the comments below.

Seaworld Taps Coca-cola Breakthrough Plantbottle Technology To Create First Consumer Cup

SeaWorld Taps Coca-Cola Breakthrough Plantbottle Technology to Create First Consumer Cup by Staff Comments Being green is oh-so refreshing. That was the message today as SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment debuted the first refillable plastic cup made from plant-based materials. Now available in all SeaWorld and Busch Gardens parks across the U.S., the reusable, 100-percent recyclable plastic cup is manufactured using proprietary PlantBottle packaging technology from the company's beverage partner, Coca-Cola. "Working together, our two companies are using our resources and reach to inspire people to make a difference," said SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment Corporate Vice President of Culinary Operations Andrew Ngo. "Our friends at The Coca-Cola Company share our commitment to conservation, our passion for the planet, and our innovative approach to consumer experiences. Even more important, this appeals to our guests, who expect and reward recycling and sustainability." PlantBottle packaging swaps traditional plastic resins with natural sugars found in plants. Fewer fossil-based ingredients mean a smaller carbon footprint. SeaWorld?s switch to PlantBottle plastic in its refillable cups is expected to remove 35 metric tons of CO2 emissions annually -- the equivalent of saving more than 80 barrels of oil a year. The unique PlantBottle website technology is popular packaging for Coca-Cola?s bottled beverages. SeaWorld takes this technology to a new level, creating the first commercially available consumer product: a refillable plastic cup. Since The Coca-Cola Company introduced PlantBottle technology in 2009 as the first recyclable PET plastic bottle made partially from plants, more than 450,000 barrels of oil have been saved. And, more than 20 billion PlantBottle packages have been distributed in 31 countries worldwide. "Once we fully realized the power of PlantBottle technology, we knew it had real-world, global applications well beyond our own products," said Scott Vitters, general manager, PlantBottle packaging platform, The Coca-Cola Company. "This collaboration with SeaWorld demonstrates that PlantBottle technology can be applied anywhere that PET plastic is traditionally used, but with a lighter footprint on the planet.? Colorful in-park murals and point-of-purchase displays promoting environmental advocacy will help inform park guests of the new product. SeaWorld eventually plans to use Coca-Cola's PlantBottle technology in the manufacture of many of its souvenir cups and is actively exploring opportunities for its potential use in the development of other merchandise. SeaWorld and Coca-Cola have also partnered on two other initiatives that promote conservation and sustainability: - In 2013 SeaWorld introduced the Cup That Cares-- a reusable cup with an embedded RFID chip that interacts with Coca-Cola Freestyle dispensers in the theme parks and calculates the amount of carbon guests keep from the environment by refilling their cups. - All fountain drinks are served in paper cups made from 85 percent renewable resources. This is a sizeable commitment: 14.6 million paper cups are used each year throughout the company's 11 theme parks.
