National Government presiding over the extinction of the Maui dolphin? I hope not...

Why are they so special?

Maui's dolphin.
Maui's dolphin:
Maui's dolphin (Cephalorhynchus hectori maui) is the world's smallest dolphin and is found only on the west coast of the North Island of New Zealand and nowhere else in the world. It is New Zealand's rarest dolphin.

The dolphin is listed internationally as 'critically endangered', which means there is a high risk of it becoming extinct in the near future.

In 2012 a DOC-commissioned study estimated the Maui's dolphin population to consist of 55 with a 95% confidence interval of between 48 to 69. The estimate is for individuals aged more than 1 year (i.e. this excludes calves of under a year).

This small population of dolphins is thought to have been isolated from their more-numerous relatives, South Island Hector's dolphin, for thousands of years.

Maui's dolphin used to be known as North Island Hector's dolphin. But research showed the North and South Island dolphins are separate sub-species that are physically and genetically distinct from each other.

This is not the first time I have posted here this year about the falling numbers of the Maui dolphins.. The previous figures I received were about 100 Maui dolphins. The Department of Conservation has expressed its concern to the New Zealand Government about the falling numbers. Even the larger Hectors dolphins need to be regularly monitored as well. Once they have gone, they are gone for ever!

1 certain particular person considered that his affordable radio alarm clock acquired a great deal better FM reception.
And if that isn't sufficient, there are keyhole wall
mount holes on the back of each speaker (two for the
centre speaker in the extra speaker set) so its possible
to simply put an 8mm screw into the wall and place the speaker onto the screw just
like you were hanging a clock. The rear section has
the input and output options for the unit.

Usually, doctors provide drugs and medicines to people who suffer from diabetes.

If you are suffering from type 1 diabetes, doctors would prescribe you insulin injections.
These treatments are aimed at ensuring the pancreas gives insulin. Though, these cures are beneficial in the short term, after
a period of time, these themselves turn into problem as
people are told to have to keep consuming these treatments and injection or else
they will die. There must be a different method to cure diabetes.
Let us go back to the fact that main factor for the diabetes problem is the lack of insulin production by the body.

Thus in place of forcing the pancreas to produce more insulin, we shall first consider why at first did the insulin formation slowed.

And then we shall attempt to eliminate that reason that had been preventing insulin production and so restoring the insulin formation as usual.

By this method we can treat diabetes quicker and there would be no
longer solutions and injections to be worried regarding.
This type of solution for diabetes is normally known as natural diabetes
treatment as this works to restore the natural working of the insulin system in the
body. Thomas Edison was a patient of diabetes and in those times when these injection and medicines were not produced, he used this very method to
cure diabetes. You shall also have a look, I am providing a link to this
below.

Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad
and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be
a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83
