July 30 (Th) 2015 Does inheritance jeopardize innocent animals?

Don't blame them having tons of money to kill for fun. (By the way, do they earn every penny with their own efforts?) One more truth discovered: Inheritance Jeopardizes Innocent Animals (non-human-sentient-beings)... Teddy did that too.

    Crystal Huang What is your take-on regarding the differences in health-ethics-concerns, needs, and wants/desires between "meat animals" and "game animals"?

    Alexandria Dickinson This man hunts for pleasure his own words posted pleasure.. Yes he paid the natives to guide him.. Don't kid yourself this man wanted that Lions head as a trophy.. He bought them off.. To fill his overinflated selfish ego.. Why was the lions collar and chip destroyed.. Guides of that country New this lion was protected.. Sad and unfortunate truth money buys anything especially in poor countries.

    Most importantly why is he hiding why hasn't he made a public statement if you didn't do anything wrong and you clearly were on aware of the issues why are you hiding cowards hide when they get caught doing bad things

    Crystal Huang @Alexandria, Yes (thanks, I downloaded this trophy hunting from your timeline). I don't know whether man-made justice, animal-justice, the earth justice, or cosmic justice, now IS Working. He got death threats and his business was closed, and now more legal processes are Tangoing with him.

    The issue is that he is just one of many of this category exposed via the Internet. Indeed, there are many reasons why some "Hunters" HAVE to hunt, but some might just go too far.

Breaking News :)!
Crystal is developing a new curriculum - Introduction to Visual Arts (at this stage, 3 credits, face-to-face delivery format). If going well, it could be offered in Spring 2016 as part of Liberal Arts Associate Degree program. Also she might provide a non-credit Conversational Mandarin - might mix with some Taiwanese :D for communities (if done, this one would be tuition free)- stay tuned! 

I am picking up my Rolling Stone again..

Crystal Huang @Melanie, it is never too young to learn a 2nd, or 3rd language smile emoticon! There are too many commercial sites online from the Eastern and Western teaching-learning perspectives.

Crystal Huang I will try to make this mini-learning through serial episodes (from the basics, and hopefully, I have time to do podcasts on fb or youtube, so learners can hear the pronunciation, in particular, the intonation). Taiwanese Mandarin and Chinese Mandarin are 98% identical, except in writing (my mother tongue is Taiwanese. Taiwan uses the traditional character writing style, while China uses the simplified version). A tiny different tone can be identified as you keep on learning to a certain point. I have been writing a mini-book - Mandarin Makes Easy. I just dug out the original manuscripts, and intend to make this work-in-progress work a full-fledged reader to be free online.
