About Whale Watching in Florida

Florida, unlike other popular destinations, doesn’t have a major whale watching industry. The lack exists primarily because most whales migrate to other locations during the year like the Bay of Fundy in Maine, Hawaii or Alaska. Despite the lack of whales to encourage the whale watching industry, Florida maintains a conservation effort for one type of specific type of whale.

Location
The eastern side of Florida, surprisingly, seasonally hosts whales.

Whales
The primary source of whales off the coast of Florida remains the 300 Northern Atlantic right whales. Migrating whales of other species occasionally populate Florida waters.

Right Whale Facts
The right whale hunted nearly to extinction because of its slow-moving tendencies, remains on the endangered species list. Whale hunters have since moved on to more plentiful prey. However, ship strikes cause around one third to one half of Northern Atlantic right whales’ deaths. Florida does not contain the North Atlantic right whales source of food. During her stay, the pregnant whales give birth, nurses her calf for a few months, then swims north; she exhibits no feeding behaviors during this time.

Season
Right whales usually give birth off the coast during the winter months.

Other wildlife
Bottlenose dolphins and Atlantic spotted dolphins are regular residents of the area.

Obama Snubs Iraqi Prime Minister at G7, ISIS Then Taunts

At the recent G7 summit President Obama publicly snubbed the Iraqi prime minister as he leaned over to try and speak with him:

ISIS recently took over the Iraqi town of Ramadi as the government withdrew its forces. ISIS is not only sucking up resources, money, arms but according to The Independent, enough radioactive material to create a dirty bomb.

What Obama, as the Commander-In-Chief, did to the Iraqi people not only sends the wrong message to our friends and enemies but also creates a dangerous situation for Americans and this nation.

Barack Obama is a disgrace.

Homemade Yogurt for a Natural Yeast Infection Remedy

Yeast is present in our bodies all the time. It is kept in check by the other good bacteria that is also present there all the time. But on occasion, this balance gets upset and the nasty little yeasty guys start to take over and before we know it we have a yeast infection!

Homemade Yogurt for a Natural Yeast Infection Remedy

Now to get rid of it, we need a yeast infection remedy that we can reach for quickly and get things back under control. One of the best things to do to start getting the good bacteria back into control is by increasing their numbers again. We can do this easily by eating yogurt because the right kind of yogurt contains lots of good bacteria that get right into our digestive tract when we eat it.

What could be better than a yeast infection remedy that we can eat and enjoy? But it has to be the right kind of yogurt; it has to contain what is known as live culture. If you just buy yogurt off the shelf at the grocers it may not contain this. Be sure to read the label to be sure.

One of the best ways to be sure you are getting plenty of live culture in your yogurt is to make it at home yourself. This way too, you will know that it is all natural and not full of artificial flavors and colors, as well as a ton of sugar. Sugar provides the perfect food for yeast bacteria so eating yogurt that is full of sugar will not work very effectively to kill it.
