'Where the Wild Things Are' author Maurice Sendak dies at age 83

Tue, 08 May 2012 09:50:46 -0700 NEW YORK Maurice Sendak didn't think of himself as a children's author, but as an author who told the truth about childhood. Sendak, who died early today in Danbury, Conn., at age 83, four days after suffering a stroke, revolutionized children's books and how we think about childhood simply by leaving in what so many writers before had excluded. http://www.rrstar.com/news/x1260496906/Where-Wild-Things-Are-author-Maurice-Sendak-dies-at-83

    Can You Help Me Correct My Essay Please?!?!? I wrote an essay about big cats, in the wild, please correct what you thing should be corrected, sentence fragments, run-on sentences, paragraphs. anything, and any suggestions on a conclusion will be most welcome. and please leave out harsh comments. thank you. 🙂 heres my essay-

    I watched a video about big cats; it’s amazing how much there is to know about them. They rely less on their brains and more on instinct, whereas humans mostly rely on their brains. There are only three major cats, lions, tigers, and leopards, and they are alike in many ways.
    Leopards live in tall grass, and tree lands. They are half the size of lions, but they have more muscle. Leopards can pull pray two times their weight up a tree, but even though they are stronger than lions, they are a lot smaller and would not survive a fight with one. That is why they climb up trees, so they can protect their food.
    Lions live in Tanzania, Africa. They have eight-inch paws, with four-inch claws. They have extremely powerful jaws, with three-four inch canines. They kill at least one person a week! Lions are very co-operative animals; they are the only big cats to hunt in a pack. They are five times more power full than humans, have small brains, but make up for it in muscle and instinct. Lions have big, thick skulls, and have lots of muscles around their jaws. More blood goes to their jaws and less blood goes to their brain, with humans it’s the complete opposite, more blood goes to the brain, and less goes to the small jaw. Lions eat an average ten pounds of meat a day, and an average of eighty pounds of meat a week.
    Tigers live in Asia, they are six hundred pounds, and can camouflage very well. Their stripes are designed to disappear, and their brownish gold colors can blend, which makes them nearly invisible. They are the only cats that can swim. When they run they use all four legs, and they use the same running motion in the water. Tiger’s paws spread and their claws come partly out, which makes a big flipper. They use their immense strength to propel themselves through the water, and they leap out to catch their pray.
    Lions and Tiger are very similar animals. They have almost the same shaped skull; they have empty space behind their canines to make a deeper bite. They can make a light, precision bite in the throat to cut off blood to the brain in large pray, spilling almost no blood. They also have a triangle shape made of small spikes on their tongue, which pull meat right off the bone.
    Lions, tigers, and leopards all have night vision, in the back of their eyes, they have a layer of reflective cells, which reflect light. They all depend of their whiskers in the dark as well. Their whiskers point forward so they can detect where the pray is, how much it is struggling and even where to bite. Their whiskers can even detect tiny puffs of air.
    Scientists bred a male lion and a female tiger, making what they called a liger. The liger is missing a certain growth gene, which makes lions and tigers normal sizes. The liger is nine hundred pounds; two times the weight of a lion or a tiger, and a 40 percent bigger skull. Ligers do not exist in the wild; they would not be able to hunt, because of the size. Ligers are so big, they could not keep up a fast speed for a long period of time, and they could survive in certain climates either.

    Ford Focus Wont Start? I have a 2000 ford focus. recently the car started to run horribly on the highway. 3 times the car dropped speed out of no where, and it struggled to get back up to speed limit. later that day I went to run out and it wouldn’t start.the gauges were going wild and the steering wheel was clicking. after about 20 mins it started up. 4 days later I was at my friend’s house and it wouldn’t start again. the only thing that happen was the steering wheel was clicking like crazy even after I took the key out.. When we tried to jump the car, the gauges went wild and the steering was clicking every time I turned the key. as soon as we took the jumper cables off nothing. I had to get a tow truck home. When the guy was taking my car off the truck in my drive way. the dam thing started. he said it the fuel pump, my friend said alternator, and my neighbor says starter switch.anyone have any idea’s what it could be?
    I believe the battery was change last august. when we tried to jump it the radio lights and everything can on, but once we disconnected it from my my friends car , nothing would turn on

    Baby Bird Found – What To Do? Hello. My daughter’s Siamese cat brought in a baby coal tit on Saturday afternoon. We managed to rescue him from the cat, and although he was in deep shock, he wasn’t actually physically hurt. In the morning, he seemed fine and very perky and has been eating hugely. And has been happily nestling under my daughter’s chin.

    Now, I don’t believe in keeping wild birds in captivity, but I understand that if we released him now, even if he did find his way back to his parents (we have no idea where the nest could be), the parents would reject the baby because of the smell, as my daughter has touched him. And also he has in such a short space of time become very trusting of her, which is not a good thing if we wanted to release him back into the wild. So at the moment, my daughter is keeping him in a parrot cage and letting him out in her room. I think the baby is close to being independent as he can fly a little bit – from her finger to a shelf and then back again. However, he keeps opening his mouth for food as soon as she puts her hand over his head – my daughter has been feeding him wax worms etc.

    Anyhow, does anyone have any suggestions as to the best thing we can do for the bird to give him the best chance of life? Any help would be much appreciated.
    @Nick – thanks for your answer. We have no problems at all with feeding him – he is eating like a horse. It’s what to do with him eventually…

      There is NO such thing as a bird rejecting it’s offspring due to smell..this is an old wives tale. Birds have a very poorly developed sense of smell. If you could find the nest and/or parents they would gladly take their baby back. You could take a look around your yard just to see if you can locate the nest. If you can, you can put the bird back into it. If you cannot get the bird back to it’s parents it’s next best chance of survival is with a local expert at a wildlife rehab. Look here for one near you:

      If you cannot find someone on this list nearby..call your local animal control or a pet hospital that might have a referral for you to someone closer.
