Blubber is a thick layer of fat that lies under the skin and over the muscles of whales . . . When Linda innocently reads out her class project, everyone finds it funny. Linda can't help it if she's fat, but what starts as a joke leads to a sustained and cruel ritual of humiliation. Jill knows she should defend Linda, but at first she's too scared. When she eventually stands up to the bullies, she becomes their next victim - and what's worse, Linda is now on their side . . . In Blubber, Judy Blume sensitively explores bullying and true friendship.

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!

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?

Bluejackets in the Blubber Room

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.”
