Grieving Elephants Weep As They Carry Dead Baby In 'Funeral' Procession
A procession of Indian elephants can be seen carrying the lifeless body of a member of the herd, in scenes reminiscent of human mourning ceremonies. A heart-rending video of elephants staging a "funeral" for one of their young has gone viral, sparking an outpouring of emotion on social media. The stunning footage was posted to Twitter by Parveen Kaswan, a forest ranger in the Indian Foreign Service, on Friday. It shows an adult Indian elephant emerging from a wooded area onto a road, carrying the lifeless body of a deceased infant with its trunk. It rests the body down, then appears to guard it as it waits for other members of the herd to follow. Walking in a line - not dissimilar to a funeral procession - both young and mature elephants gather around the carcass. -- Parveen Kaswan, IFS @ParveenKaswan: “This will move you !! Funeral procession of the weeping elephants carrying dead body of the child elephant. The family just don’t want to leave the baby.”
With the group in tow, the body is carried off into the forest as passersby look on. It provoked outburst of emotion on the social media site, after it was re-tweeted more than 5,000 times, and received just short of 12,000 'likes'. Devika commented: "This is heart rending. There's a lot that humans can learn from animals." Sumita Bhatt added: "Omg!!! First time I hv seen such video… Really very touching" Mohan Alembath said it was a "very touching and emotionally disturbing video", observing that "elephants' capacity for complex emotions like grief is truly remarkable". While scientists warn against interpreting such displays as being motivated by "grief", elephants are one of a number of species who have been observed to mourn their dead. Elephants have been known to take special interest in the bones of their deceased, according to the Smithsonian magazine, and have been seen holding "funerals".
During these memorials, the animals have been known to repeatedly pass the deceased fellow herd member - even sometimes smelling and touching the dead body. Last year, images were circulated of a female killer whale carrying the body of her deceased calf on her back for more than two weeks through Canadian waters before releasing it.

Does Memory Start in the Womb. An Argument for Anti Abortion. A rendition of Symposium Sunday. April 28, 2019. Does Memory Start in the Womb Yes it does for the reason why we cross our feet and legs a certain way. This was the position you were in the womb, and through memory we remember a position we were most secure, comfortable in. It is our most inate memory through enviroment.
Last, but not least! Our ewe, Babe, delivered twins in the middle of the pouring rain. Luckily, it was not a thunderstorm. Babe is notorious on our farm for having issues with lambing and for trying to walk off from her babies. Will she be a good mama this year? Watch to find out and to see the twin babies :)

Our baby chickens aren’t babies anymore! At about a month old, they are more like rambunctious and awkward teenagers. They won’t actually be mature and start laying eggs until they are 5-6 months old (think chicken menses).
Watch to see how they’ve grown and what kind of antics they’ve been up to along the way!
These girls still have a couple of weeks before they go outside into the wide world, but they’re coming along nicely.

This sermon goes over the Parallels of the Situation in Fort Worth Texas and the story of Sheba in 2 Samuel Chapter 20. Adam Fannin is a selfish wicked man that decided in this time of Crisis that he should take over the church or demand that he get ordained sooner. This selfish attitude is not a good quality for a leader of a church. Instead of thinking of what I can do to help all Adam was worried about was a raise and becoming ordained as Quick as possible! Just like Sheba who tried to rally against David now Adam is tried to rally against the new ordained Pastor.
Incredible! Deputy Nix was headed home from work when a mother flagged him down because her baby was unresponsive. This Officer Immediately jump into action and helped save Kingston’s life! HERO! #BackTheBlue
The baby boomers come into their own in a world of material comfort and superficiality. They saw that the prosperity that the New Deal afforded them was not available to the African American community. They became a splinter left faction against war and for civil rights, but fairly indifferent to the power of oligarchy that plagued their parents. They thought those days were history but were horribly wrong. This was the beginning of a divided left in America. Both righteous, yet adversarial, allowing the right an easy takeover.
This documentary series is designed to be an outreach to the politically uninitiated. It is meant to pierce the academic echo chamber and reach the majority of society that only seems to get information that is either truthful but wonky and arcane or easily digestible but propaganda and thoroughly dishonest. Afterall, Democracy is based on the majority. The small esoteric group of academics and assorted leftists is not a majority and needs to cultivate outreach beyond their circles.
It is therefore generalized to avoid going deep into the minutiae, with the attempt at framing the issues honestly within the confines of explaining it to people of all education levels or lack thereof.
