April the Giraffe – All is well in the barn

There is still no baby but keepers at Animal Adventure Park say “all is well in the barn” with April and her unborn calf.

Watching the live webcam video, keepers say there is continued movement of the baby inside April with big baby kicks.

On Monday giraffe fans can look forward to some yard time for April and the calf’s father, Oliver.

Keepers say mom and baby are happy and healthy.

April the pregnant celebrity giraffe continued to do well on Saturday as she awaited the arrival of her fourth calf – and a live stream of her wait attracted upwards of 30 million viewers.

April is a 15-year-old giraffe who lives at the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, near Binghamton in New York state. Her celebrity kicked into high gear on Thursday after YouTube abruptly cut the live stream when what the zoo called “animal rights extremists” alleged a violation of its “nudity and sexual content” policy

Up to that point more than 20 million had watched footage from the camera placed in April’s stall. The abrupt blackout incensed giraffe fans, who complained that their “the miracle of life” video was being suppressed. The video was subsequently restored to YouTube.

Attempts to contact the Animal Adventure Park were not successful as it is closed for the season, but Jordan Patch, its owner, said in a video on Facebook Live it was OK if some animal activists did not agree with the decision to live stream the birth. The decision to remove it, he said, was wrong.

“This has pulled an educational tool away from tens of millions of individuals,” Patch said, adding that the decision could harm giraffes by reducing awareness of their vulnerability in the wild.

Veterinarians said on Facebook on Saturday they were satisfied with April’s progress but could not forecast when the birth would occur. Giraffes, they said, tend to hide signs of labor.

“Physical posturing and other activity observed,” they wrote. To the untrained eye, April was mostly standing still and swinging her tail or slowly circling her pen.

Giraffe pregnancies last for 15 months, with newborn calves weighing about 150lb and standing 6ft.

While April and Oliver, the five-year-old father of her calf, enjoyed yard time on Friday, the pair were being kept in separate stalls.

“His rambunctious play for an extended period could have negative effects,” the vets wrote. “Boys will be boys.”

NASA’s Trappist-1 Code (It’s A Trap!)

In a solar system far far away there exists … a trap!

NASA has announced they’ve found a nearby solar system who’s dwarf star they’re calling Trappist A, anagram for Its A Trap!
Researching media referencing the Admiral Ackbar “it’s a trap” scene from the Kabbalah laced Star Wars films reveals an interwoven set of clues all tying back to Unified Code Theory. I’m at the point where I can decode this stuff in one night and cut the video. Everything is excellersting towards the event- cracking the dome and turning off the holographic sun, revealing the true “black hole sun”, the real rabbit hole. We are now approaching burnout. Are you ready for the event? Pay attention and read – Not everything is in the narration.

UK weather: Britain set to be hit by 70mph winds

February 2, 2017 – Britain will be battered by 70mph winds at the end of this week, the Met Office has warned as forecasters said Storm Doris may be on the way.

A yellow “be aware” weather warning covering the south of the country as well as Wales and north west England was issued by the forecaster on Tuesday amid fears the conditions may cause damage to trees and buildings.

Power supplies and travel may also be disrupted, the warning said, as winds reach up to 80mph in exposed coastal areas.

They said it was possible that would happen on Wednesday when more details are known about the system’s progress, as it may instead move towards France.

Speaking about the warning, the chief forecaster added: “A number of potentially vigorous low pressure systems are likely to move quickly towards northwest Europe later this week.
