Every whale is an island

   I've been hooked on orcas ever since I accidentally watched a documentary about them on B-site. In the documentary, this huge, black-and-white ocean lord looks like a cold killer who kills at the drop of a hat.

  In fact, the opening of the mouth has become the voice of the cute calling monster, so many whale suckers are called "fat tiger". With a few tons of volume, but a kind of tiger head tiger brain cute, this contrast has attracted countless people to it flocked to.

  I am also one of them. So, taking advantage of the May Day holiday, my friend and I went to a marine park in the university town.

  There, I waited for hours in a long line and finally saw the "fat tiger" I had been waiting for. It was a very small orca, rolling back and forth in the huge pool with its naive look projected on the big screen behind it. It swam fast, navigating through the clear pool water, showing its black fins.

  "It looks so lonely, how boring it is just staying here every day! Look how pathetic it is to start performing in the oceanarium at such a young age!" My friend suddenly turned to me and lamented.

  When I heard her words, the smile I had just been amused by the orcas faded, and the information about orcas in my mind became clear in a flash.

  There are family groups of orcas, and like humans, their young need to learn to hunt and live under the tutelage of adult orcas; they are also afraid of being alone and need companionship, just like humans.

  I stood there looking at the young orca, a lonely figure with an indescribable lonesomeness, which should have been swimming in the vast ocean instead of being confined here, performing day after day against its nature in order to entertain humans.

  I have seen many animals in the zoo, golden monkeys, elephants, all kinds of snakes, and northeast tigers, lions, etc.. At that time I thought they should be very enjoyable, after all, in the zoo to receive feeding, being good food and drink in captivity, do not have to hunt in the wild hard, do not have to run around like people in order to live.

  I didn't realize how wrong I was until now.

  The beasts that live in nature are wild, but because they have been locked up in zoos for a long time, they have lost their original hunting skills, worn out the wild, once people release them, they can still survive the cruelty of nature? Few and far between.

  In 2013, the documentary "Black Whale" was released, which recorded the sad song of the orca Tilakum's life. This is a killer whale with three lives on its back, captured in Iceland when it was about two years old, and after nearly a year in captivity in a small Icelandic oceanarium, it was forced to begin a 34-year-long show.

  In the documentary, Tilakum, who suffered long captivity, was unable to communicate with other orcas. Eventually, it developed a mental illness and killed its former trainer.

  How is this killer whale that killed a human being not a tragedy caused by humans?

  Although humans stand at the top of the food chain, they are never the masters of nature, and everything in the world is symbiotic and coexistent. Some unscrupulous businessmen want to break the rules of nature, and humans may suffer the backlash of nature. Tilakum is the best example.

  A whale should be an island, a group of whales is an ocean, upright in the cloudy sea, undisturbed, is where it belongs.

Moroccan football team: "The most familiar stranger"

   When I was still in college ten years ago, I led a sightseeing group of more than 30 Moroccan students. Before meeting them, my general impression of the Moroccans was that they are from North Africa but closer to the Arab world. They have religious beliefs, are used to worship, and are inextricably linked with France.   When I saw the real person, I realized that the North Africans in front of me were actually a group of children playing with each other and having fun in time. They were about the same age as me at the time. I have all kinds of nicknames and nicknames. During the process of taking them to Badaling, the Summer Palace and Houhai, two classmates and I, together with more than 30 Moroccan students, realized "cultural integration" and "world unity" in the small group to some extent.   During the World Cup in Qatar, I was surprised to find that the little-known Morocco team, which was eliminated in the group stage of the last World Cup, after miraculou

Zeigarnik effect

  As a freelancer, you have to fight procrastination every day. "I've made up my mind many times, but I just can't change it. Is it because I'm slow or slow?". In fact, many procrastinations are irrational. Many obstructions are imagined by myself. So distract, postpone, avoid confrontation. It's cool to procrastinate, and it's cool to procrastinate all the time, so I can't do it. Concentration is also related to physical strength. When the physical strength is exhausted, it is even more difficult to concentrate. You’ll tell yourself: I’m too tired to do this—okay, another perfect procrastination.   In 1927, Bruma Zeigarnik's senior research found that people are more likely to care about unfinished and interrupted work than completed work. This is the Zeigarnik effect. For example, we often don't care much about what we have got, but we will especially cherish what we have worked hard but haven't got. Therefore, the TV series will tell you
