Blubber is a good name for her, the note from Wendy says about Linda. Jill crumples it up and leaves it on the corner of her desk. She doesn't want to think about Linda or her dumb report on the whale just now. Jill wants to think about Halloween. But Robby grabs the note, and before Linda stops talking it has gone halfway around the room. That's where it all starts. There's something about Linda that makes a lot of kids in her fifth-grade class want to see how far they can go -- but nobody, least of all Jill, expects the fun to end where it does. A New York Times Outstanding Book of the Year

Although they haven’t been together all that long, they know it’s serious. A whole world opens up as young passion and sexuality bloom.

In, Burn the Blubber - How to Lose Belly Fat Fast (And For Good!), author Robert Dave Johnston gives you an in-depth look at the causes of belly fat, the health implications and a comprehensive list of tips, techniques and lifestyle changes that can help you get rid of that spare tire once and for all. The author outlines thought, behavior and external changes that helped him overcome 20 + years of obesity and binge eating as well as lose more than 100 pounds, which he has now kept off for 12 years. Topics include, measuring body fat and assessing where you are, creating a definite fat loss goal, getting active, handling emotions and urges to overeat, portion control, dietary changes, list of banned foods, addressing the internal world of thoughts and belief systems, the amazing power of 'daily fasting' and numerous other tips and techniques to promote belly fat loss. Even though losing belly fat can be challenging, the author presents the material in a point-by-point format that is detailed and easy to understand. If you are looking for a guide to help you make the lifestyle changes needed to achieve long-term fat loss, this book will prove itself to be a very useful addition to your library. Burn the Blubber is Volume 4 of the series, How To Lose Weight Fast, Keep it Off & Renew The Mind, Body & Spirit Through Fasting, Smart Eating & Practical Spirituality. Hello dear friend, this is Rob. Just in case you are still undecided, here are crucial health reasons why you MUST get rid of belly fat quickly and without further hesitation. It may sound cute when somebody tells you that you are shaped like an apple or pear, but what it really means is that you are packing on the visceral fat in the thighs and butt. I get into this topic in detail inside the book; however, there is never anything cute about belly fat in view of the huge health problems that it will ALWAYS cause. Not to alarm you, but too much fat around the mid-section skyrockets your risk of life-threatening health problems as stroke, diabetes and high-blood pressure. But this warning doesn't just apply to those who are heavy. Skinny people can also pack dangerous amounts of unseen blubber. Since the person is not overweight, the fat digs itself deep around the vital organs in your tummy. Sure, these people may look slim on the outside, but, inside, they carry the same health time-bomb as others who may be noticeably overweight or obese. Doctors have told me that accumulations of fat in the midsection actually become ONE 'living organ' inside your body; a derelict 'alien' invader consuming your life resources and 'feeding' on your health. This is quite a dramatic depiction, I know. But I want to drive the message hard and deep that belly fat is deadly and must be destroyed. In which ways is belly fat harming you? Do you know? Are you soberly aware of the seriousness of the situation? Do you realize that immediate action is required to halt and vanquish these looming sicknesses? IF you are so persuaded, then what are you waiting for? One by one, we will discuss all of the changes that need to happen in your life over time. I will give you plenty of tips, motivation and inspiration to get the ball rolling and never look back. There is still time to sidestep serious health consequences. BUT you must get off the couch, get moving and stop entertaining negative thoughts related to your weight and health. So let's get started! The best is yet to come, IF you train yourself (little by little) to take daily action and modify your lifestyle in the various ways that I will suggest. May peace, love, health and prosperity follow you all of the days of your life!

Elephant seals are huge animals that live part of their life on land. When I say they are huge, I mean huge. The male elephant seal can grow to be up to 16 feet (4.9 metres) long. They can weigh 6,600 pounds (3000 kilograms)! An average car weighs about 3,000 pounds (1360 kilograms). That means a male elephant seal can weigh more than two cars! That is big! Female elephant seals are only about half the size of the males. That is still a very big seal, though. Female elephant seals can be up to about 10 feet (three metres) long and weigh about 2,000 pounds (910 kilograms) Find out more about this amazing animal and learn the answers to these questions: How long does an elephant seal stay in the water? How deep can an elephant seal dive? In what way do male elephant seals dive differently from female elephant seals? Why do elephant seals like to hang out in very deep water? In March or April elephant seals wake up to find that their mother is gone. Where did she go? Learn what an elephant seal looks like, where it lives, what it eats, what eats it, how babies are born, and other fun facts. Ages 7 - 10 Reading Level 3.7 All measurements in American and metric.

Bluejackets in the Blubber Room explores key events in US maritime history from the 1820s to the end of the Civil War through the biography of the sailing ship William Badger. Taking a biographical approach to his subject, Peter Kurtz describes three phases of the life of the William Badger, a sailing ship with a long and exemplary life on the sea: first as a merchant ship carrying raw materials and goods between New England, the US South, and Europe; second as a whaling ship; and finally as a supply ship providing coal and stores for the North Atlantic Blockading Squadron in Beaufort, North Carolina, during the Civil War. Kurtz begins Bluejackets in the Blubber Room by exploring early American shipbuilding and shipbuilders in the Piscataqua region of Maine and New Hampshire and the kinds of raw materials harvested and used in making the wooden sailing ships of the time. After its construction, the Badger became part of the key economic trade between New England, the US South, and Europe. The ship carried raw materials such as timber from New England to New Orleans and subsequently cotton from New Orleans to Spain and Liverpool, England. Using ship logs, sailors’ accounts, and other primary sources, Kurtz delves into both the people and the economics of this critical “cotton triangle” trade. Following service as a merchant ship, the Badger became a whaling ship, carrying its New England–based crew as far as the South Pacific. Kurtz presents a colorful story of life aboard a whaling ship and in the whaling towns ranging from Lynn, Massachusetts, to Cape Leeuwin, Australia. Finally, Kurtz describes the last phase of the Badger’s life as a key player as a supply ship in the Union Navy’s blockade effort. Although not the most dramatic duty a sailor could have, blockade supply nevertheless was critical to the United States’ prosecution of the Civil War and eventual victory. Kurtz examines the decision-making involved in procuring such ships and their crew, notably “refugees” and escaped slaves known as “contrabands.”

The dolphin and its environment is sculpted by blubber - a complex, structural biomaterial. I have investigated the functional design of blubber by (1) measuring its 3-D architecture and its physical connections to other locomotor tissues, and (2) testing its dynamic biaxial stress/strain behavior. Blubber can be biomechanically modeled as an adipose hydrostat: thorax blubber is designed to maximize body volume and tailstock blubber is designed to resist torsion and to store strain energy during swimming. Blubber is directly connected to the axial skeleton in the caudal tailstock, permitting force transmission and limiting shear deformation. Dynamic and pseudostatic mechanical tests have demonstrated that blubber is both a resilient tensile and compressive spring with an elastic modulus similar to that of high-quality biological and synthetic rubbers. Preliminary data demonstrate that blubber resists stress-relaxation. Blubber is morphologically and mechanically well-suited to (1) limit large scale shear deformation that might occur across the skin's thickness and (2) function as a biological spring. This study is the first to present data that support the hypothesis that blubber may function as a spring to decrease the metabolic cost of swimming in dolphins.
