Real Housewives Of Miami Star Supports PETA

first_imgConfined au naturel to a small tub, Real Housewives of Miami star Adriana de Moura stars in a provocative new ad for PETA that asks, “Could You Live in a Bathtub for 40 Years?” and explains that the orca Lolita has been imprisoned in a small tank at the Miami Seaquarium since she was captured from the wild in 1970.In addition to starring in the print ad, de Moura — whose native Brazil has completely banned the captivity of marine mammals for entertainment — sat down for a video Q&A with PETA in which she urges her fellow parents not to take their children to marine-mammal parks such as the Seaquarium.“When you take your children to a park where an animal is being kept for years in confined quarters …. in this age, where we’re supposed to be so enlightened—equality for everybody—it’s a hypocrisy,” she says. “You’re sending a message to your children that it’s OK to dominate, it’s OK to confine.”In response to a petition filed by PETA and others, the National Marine Fisheries Service recently announced that it’s considering affording Lolita the same protection that her wild family has under the Endangered Species Act. She could ultimately return to Puget Sound in a controlled release and join her 82-year-old mother, from whom she has been separated all this time.last_img read more

Tiger Woods Impressive In First Round Of US Open

On a course many consider the toughest test of golf ever, Tiger Woods performed like, well, Tiger Woods. The old Tiger Woods, that is, meaning he managed his way around the very difficult Olympic Club in San Francisco with aplomb, hitting a variety of shots into rock-hard greens and making enough putts to post a solid 1-under 69 Thursday.An effort like that is further evidence that Woods could be truly returning to the form that made him golf’s envy. He has not won a major championship in four year, but to trail leader Michael Thompson by just three shots after the first day is a significant step toward major No. 15.Playing with Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson, Woods made four birdies against three bogeys. His stretch of consecutive birdies on holes 4 and 5 moved him to 2-under. He bogeyed the next hole and parred his way in from there.Meanwhile, Mickelson and Watson blew up. The pair of lefties were all over the place, shooting 76 (Mickelson) and 78 (Watson), respectively.Woods mixed driver and irons off the tee throughout his round on a course that is not particularly long for this championship but does have some dramatically long holes, especially on the front nine.Missed birdie putts on the first and second holes — yanking the latter off the lip from about 4 feet — cost Woods. But they did not distract him.Michael Thompson, the 2007 U.S. Amateur runner-up at The Olympic Club, was outstanding Thursday, taking the clubhouse lead at minus-4. read more

James is additionally charged with a special circumstance allegation of torture.Police and prosecutors allege that Bushee and James — both on probation in connection with a burglary in San Bernardino County — broke into Gawitt’s home, where at least one of them stabbed her before the pair stole her car and fled.Authorities searched for the burglars by ground and aboard a law enforcement helicopter throughout the morning. Shortly before noon, the pair were arrested in an open, brushy area off the 4800 block of Park Drive, about a tenth of a mile from the victim’s home.Deputies found the victim’s car abandoned in the 800 block of Grand Avenue in San Marcos about five hours after the fatal assault occurred, sheriff’s Lt. David Buether said.Last April, the suspects were arrested after a homeowner in Upland walked in on them as they were ransacking the victim’s home, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department. The pair fled with thousands of dollars worth of jewelry and electronics, including $70,000 in collectible coins stuffed in a sock.Bushee and James are both being held without bail and are due back in court March 21 for a readiness conference.Related story:Victim identified in Carlsbad home invasion, murder Two people plead not guilty in fatal stabbing of a Carlsbad woman KUSI Newsroom, Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom last_img read more
