Whales can learn about danger and can warn each other, according to a study of how they dodged whaling ships in the 19th century

An annotated image of a sperm whale. Insider/Francois Gohier/VW Pics/Universal Images Group/Getty Images Sperm whales changed their behavior to dodge whaling ships in the 1800s, according to a study. That behavior spread among sperm whales and disrupted the whaling industry, scientists found. This could be an example of animal "culture", the lead author of the study told Insider.

Narwhal Tusks Show How Climate Change and Pollution Are Reshaping the Arctic

There’s no question that we’re messing up the oceans big time. But shocking new research shows the world’s addiction to fossil fuels is changing the bodies of big ocean predators like narwhals. A study published this month in Current Biology uses narwhal tusks to examine how the animals store mercury over time,…Read more...

How Whale Songs Can Help Us Explore the Ocean

Some whale songs can give scientists valuable information about the ocean’s geography, according to a study published Thursday in the journal Science. What’s more, their songs can be used as a form of seismic testing, which uses blasts of sound to map out the ocean floor. Forms of this technology can be harmful to…Read more...

Add title="" to h* based on existing TOC -- suggestion for new feature (or plugin?)

How easy / possible would it be to reverse engineer an existing TOC and add the existing titles as they appear, to a title="" in an h* tag at the appropriate point in the book? If the file is really badly made and the chapter titles are in some random tag like p or div it might be necessary to add a blank h* with a display:none to it. I'm not sure whether this is better suited to a feature in the Tools > Table of Contents menu or as a plugin (super subtle WINK to any plugin coders who are bored ...

Whale & Riveters Add New, Fresh Faces

Recently both the Connecticut Whale and the Metropolitan Riveters upgraded their rosters for Season 6 with new, fresh faces who will be hoping to make their NWHL debuts in November. Both franchises needed to add some more talent to catch the front-running Boston Pride and both have to believe they are closer to that goal after their most recent additions. The Whale upgraded their goaltender depth chart on May 21 with the signing of Abbie Ives from nearby Quinnipiac University. Later that day ...

#TwistedTropes 28. Jonah's necessary whale

Photo by Andrew Bain on unsplash It wasn't long after the prophet Jonah was thrown overboard into stormy seas that he was swallowed by a great fish. Popular belief is that it was a whale, but that would be ridiculous. It's virtually impossible for a whale of any size to swallow a man, and for him to survive inside it's stomach for up to three days. But I bet there are plenty of fish out there in the depths of the oceans that might be large enough to take on the job. Imagine the job desc...

Connecticut Whale’s Primary Objective: Capitalize in the ‘O’ Zone

Six games into the 2019-20 National Women’s Hockey League season and still without a win, the Connecticut Whale are no longer satisfied with rationales like not getting favorable breaks in games or good efforts that come up short. Battling hard, which was again the case in a 3-1 loss to the Buffalo Beauts last Sunday afternoon at the Danbury Ice Arena, doesn’t cut it anymore. The Whales want that ‘W’ and moral victories aren’t acceptable. Related: NWHL October Recap Three weeks removed ...

Connecticut Whale Vow to Stay the Course Through Rough Swells

Navigating through the early rip currents of this National Women’s Hockey League season has been challenging, but for the Connecticut Whale, it continues to be about the entire journey. That challenge escalated on Sunday afternoon at the Danbury Ice Arena. The Whale endured their most heartbreaking loss amidst a stretch of games that would test even the most seasoned athletes let alone a squad filled with many newcomers. Warding off virtually everything the Isobel Cup champion Minnesota Wh...

Connecticut Whale Displays Newfound Firepower in Setback to Beauts

For the Connecticut Whale of the National Women’s Hockey League, quality scoring chances were in short supply last season. The 2018-19 squad not only lit the lamp a mere 22 times, but also had limited opportunities as a whole in the offensive zone. Those tendencies took a huge turn in the right direction during Saturday’s season-opening 3-1 loss to the Buffalo Beauts at the Danbury Ice Arena.

Former Whale Goalie Walther Talks Coaching, Growth & ‘Lift the Mask’

Everything in life happens for a reason. Things work out in ways that we would not have necessarily imagined, but that at some point make sense. Sometimes this can be especially difficult to recognize during those most trying moments of our lives. And as challenging as this concept may be to rationalize, one would have to suppose that if it is tough for you and me, then it must be even more challenging for a hockey goaltender. Goalies already bear a great deal of weight upon the shoulders by the...

Top-5 Sarah Edney Moments With the Buffalo Beauts

Goodbyes can be tough, especially when the person bidding farewell has been so impactful. The Buffalo Beauts announced on Jan. 7, 2019 that veteran defender Sarah Edney had played her final game with the organization during the team’s 5-0 victory on Jan. 5 against the Boston Pride. The decision was mutually agreed upon between the Beauts and Edney prior to the 2018-19 NWHL season getting under way. Jan. 5, 2018’s showdown between the Buffalo Beauts and the Boston Pride was defender Sarah Edney’...

Sass & Richards Lead Riveters to First Home Win

In her first start of the season for the Metropolitan Riveters, Kimberly Sass made 33 saves and then stopped all three Connecticut Whale shooters during the shootout to secure her team’s first home win of the season. The Rivs won 4-3 but had to rally from a 3-2 deficit entering the third period, and it was rookie Audra Richards who completed her first NWHL hat trick to force overtime with a goal past the midway point of the third. Amanda Kessel netted the lone shootout goal and Sass stopped Kate...

One League: Beyond the Obvious of Merging NWHL/CWHL

Timing is everything. People tend to want instant gratification, or to know that important matters will be resolved in short order. Whether we like it or not, that is not always the case – and that’s okay. For a number of months we have heard the cry of “one league” – the concept of merging North America’s two professional women’s hockey leagues, the National Women’s Hockey League (NWHL) and the Canadian Women’s Hockey League (CWHL). We have heard the statements of the merger’s inevitably and wh...

Humpback whale epic leap by boat

Everyone who goes on a whale watch considers themselves lucky to catch a glimpse of a whale, however brief or distant. Visions of whales breaching next to the boat, or many whales swimming alongside each other, water spouting from their blowholes, fill the imagination of eager whale watch tour passengers, but rarely do such sights become realities. That’s why this particular whale watch tour group was so fortunate. Recently, the TAZ Whale Watching tour near Gustavus, Alaska was treated to a ...

Between Frankenstein (1931) and The Invisible Man (1933), director James Whale made this over-the-top lark of a dark and stormy night with stranded travelers and a crazy family.
