Golden eagles make this sound when receiving allopreening and similar affectionate and soothing treatment from their parents and mates. It’s the “I am safe and well fed, and somebody familiar is taking good care of me” sound. Angry raptors and wounded raptors make some pretty dramatic hisses and shrieks; frightened raptors go dead silent and try to hide if they can, or fluff up big and get loud and in-your-face if hiding isn’t an option. They can easily sever a finger or break the bones of a human hand or wrist, and even with a very thick leather falconer’s gauntlet, I’ve known falconers to leave a mews (hawk house) with graphic punctures THROUGH the gauntlet into the meat of their hands and arms, just from buteos and kestrels way smaller than this eagle.

(e.g. dog snarling or biting, swan hissing, horse kicking or biting) <br/><br/>2. Does the animal experience an incentive-based relationship with the human? (i.e. does the animal have a reason, in the animal’s frame of reference, for being near this human? e.g. dog sharing companionship / food / shelter, hawk receiving good quality abundant food and shelter and medical care from a falconer)</p> <p>3.

Most hawks only live with the falconer for a year, and most of that year is spent getting the bird in ideal condition for survival and success as a wild breeding adult. Falconers are extensively trained and dedicated wildlife conservationists, pretty much by definition, especially in the continental USA, and they make up an unspeakably important part of the overall conservation of predatory bird species. Predatory birds are an important part of every ecosystem they inhabit. Just like apiarists and their bees, the relationship between falconer and hawk is one of great benefit to the animal and the ecosystem, in exchange for a huge amount of time, effort, expense, and education on the part of the human, for very little personal benefit to that one human. It’s definitely not exploitation of the bird, and most hawks working with falconers are hawks who absolutely would not have reached adulthood without human help: the sick, the injured, and the “runts” of the nest who don’t receive adequate resources from their own parents.

The PP is comprised of three tubes, two of which fill up with blood when u aroused. The third is the urethra. If ya girl on top - riding a lil too wild goin ham and bananas on the dih and she super duper waterfall shtatus just making a puddle under u cot damn jumping up and down to hit that super deep shtroke to where yo PP feel like it bout to pop out - she could actually land wrong and u could sustain a fracture - u hear a loud popping or cracking which mean the tissue that surround ya two big tubes can’t withstand the pressure. Down go ya PP. Bruising. Indescribable pain. Blood when u pee. U gotta go straight to the ER and have surgery and even then, u might never do a full flag salute again. That don’t seem very pleasant, do it bruv. To just get yo PP broke. Well how the FVCK u think a woman feel when u putting in work from behind, invade the wrong entry point, and break her b00tyhole 😩. Men who find themselves ‘accidentally’ in the back door are engaging in gross negligence or recklessness - which is a crime. If u drunk and drive, u may not be intending to hit a kid on a bicycle, but if u do, u knew it was possible, and so u liable. That’s at BEST. At worst, y’all in rape territory (let’s call it what it is.) Sadly, I’ve met a LOT of women who will never even try the Backdoor Boogie because of an ‘accidental’ invasion so congrats to all u men who do this - your aggression - wanton stupidity has ruined a pretty awesome act for a whole segment of the female population. The bottom line is that this is inexcusable - either u careless to the point of being reckless, or u a predator. And whether u know it or not bruv u on borrowed time. A lot of ladies like it rough. This isn’t ‘being rough’. It’s not consensual. It’s barely a grey area. It’s actually mostly black and white. Your last partner might have let it slide (no pun intended 😖) but your next one might fvck ya life up - and she got every right to. I am the last one who should be lecturing anybody because I do a lot of sh!t I’m ashamed of so let’s just take this as a collective reminder...Men: let’s do better. ME TOO. Aight? Bless up 🙌

<blockquote><p>Imagine Democrats electing Weinstein President? It would NEVER happen.</p>

<p>It’s such a clear sign that both parties are not the same.</p></blockquote>

<p>I like how you pretend there weren&rsquo;t dozens of liberals in Hollywood who were perfectly aware of Weinstein&rsquo;s transgressions and decided to keep quiet about it to protect their careers. People like Ben Affleck make a big show of condemning him now when there&rsquo;s no negative repercussions for doing so, but for decades he decided to go deaf and blind like everyone else. 

I also like how you&rsquo;re completely ignoring a democratic former president with sexual abuse allegations. I&rsquo;ll let you think about it for minute&hellip;</p><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-width="465" data-orig-height="322" data-tumblr-attribution="cracked:TqbGt2RvF3TXAk_tGNG4iA:ZMDnby2MQr492" data-orig-src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/2b41739d568f1611d57e724ac5853d1c/tumblr_or4nevdyWI1qz5q5lo1_500.gif"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/2b41739d568f1611d57e724ac5853d1c/tumblr_inline_oxuersmWGf1rw09tq_540.gif" data-orig-width="465" data-orig-height="322" data-orig-src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/2b41739d568f1611d57e724ac5853d1c/tumblr_or4nevdyWI1qz5q5lo1_500.gif"/></figure>

Fall, Future, and Lawyer: Harvey Weinstein Says Oprah Called To Support Him, Oprah's Team Says That's Not True, She Only Wanted An Interview @balleralert Harvey Weinstein Says Oprah Called To Support Him, Oprah’s Team Says That’s Not True, She Only Wanted An Interview – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s been more than a week since The New York Times exposed super producer HarveyWeinstein. Since then, he has lost his job and his wife over the explosive sexual assault allegations against him. However, he says one person has shown him support in this troubling time, Oprah Winfrey. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to TMZ, the producer said Winfrey called him earlier this week to say she was ready to support him publically. Sources say Weinstein told his team that the superstar TV host advised him to speak out and defend himself and said that once he did, she would be his support. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, a spokesperson for Winfrey says that is simply not true. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Oprah has not spoken to Harvey Weinstein directly. Someone from his team reached out to her to see if she would talk to him, and she said she would if it was for an interview. There are no plans for an interview at this time,” the rep said, adding that the host was interested in a “60 minute” interview with the producer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But, the spokesperson made it clear that Oprah only wanted the truth from Weinstein, if he agreed to sit down with her. “I’ve been processing the accounts of Harvey Weinstein’s behavior and haven’t been able to find the words to articulate the magnitude of the situation,” Winfrey said on Thursday. “This is the story of one predator and his many victims; but it is also about an overwhelming systemic enabling, and until that story is fully told we will fall far short of stopping future depredations on a similar scale,” she added, quoting James Schamus. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the meantime, TMZ reports that Weinstein will challenge his firing by The Weinstein Company on Oct 17 at the board meeting. Although the producer is at a live-in rehab facility at this time, he will be present by phone and his lawyer will be at the meeting to present his case.
