المترجم Hanaa Barakat. المدقّق omar idmassaoud. أنتم على وشك سماع صوت المفترس ذو الأسنان الأكبر على هذا الكوكب, حيوان أضخم من باص مدرسة, ويملك أكثر وسائل التواصل تعقيدا من بين كل المخلوقات: (نقر الحوت). هذه الأصوات من حوت العنبر، وهو من الثدييات التي تستطيع الغوص لمسافة ميل تقريبا، ويحبس أنفاسه لما يزيد عن الساعة. ويعيش في هذه التجمعات الأمومية المعقدة بشكل مذهل. هذه النقرات التي تسمعونها، والتي تسمى بالتذييلات، هي واحدة من طرق التواصل التي نعرفها عنها. نحن نعلم أن هذه الحيوانات تتواصل، ولكن إلى الآن لا نعرف شيئاً عن ما تقوله. يهدف مشروع “سيتي” إلى اكتشاف ذلك. على مدار الخمس سنوات المقبلة، فريقنا من متخصصي الذكاء الاصطناعي وعلماء الروبوتات, واللغويين وعلماء الأحياء البحرية، إلى استخدام أكثر التقنيات المتطورة لخلق تواصل مع الفصائل الأخرى، على أمل أن يتواصلوا معنا. نحن نؤمن أن بالاستماع إلى الطبيعة بعمق، نستطيع تغيير منظورنا لأنفسنا وإعادة تشكيل علاقاتنا مع الحياة على هذا الكوكب. بالطبع, هذا يبدو كهدف يستحيل تحقيقه. اعتاد الناس على مر الزمن أن يتواصلوا مع الحيوانات لمئات السنين. كيف لنا أن نفعل ما فشل به غيرنا، خاصة وأنا أجلس هنا على أريكتي في نيويورك في منتصف جائحة عالمية واحتجاجات؟? لقد قضيت العشرين سنة الماضية كعالم أحياء مائية وأخصائي علم المحيطات. أدرس المحيط من كل المنظورات المختلفة، من الميكروبات لأسماك القرش. لقد جمعت فرقًا متعددة التخصصات, والتي صنعت أول كاميرا عين قرش لنرى العالم من منظور أسماك القرش، ولقد تعاونّا مع مهندسين لتصميم روبوتات لطيفة لدرجة انها لا تضغط على قناديل البحر, ولكن لم يفلح الأمر حتى عام 2018, عندما كنت في منحة زمالة في معهد رادكليف للدراسات المتقدمة, عندما أدركت أنه ربما أفضل طريقة لفهم المحيط وسكانه لم يكن فقط برؤية العالم من خلال أعينهم، بل بالاستماع- بالاستماع العميق لهم. أصبحت مهتما بحيتان العنبر عندما سمعت أصواتها, كأن أصواتها تأتي من عالم آخر. صوت صفير مزعج يأتي متردداً من أحلك مكان في البحر. لم يكن الصوت المتناغم للحيتان الذي اعتدت عليه. كان يشبه صوت نقل البيانات الرقمية أكثر. جمعنا فريق مشروع “سيتي” المستقبلي وبدأنا مناقشة كيفية استخدام أكثر التقنيات المتقدمة لنتواصل مع الحيتان. كان أحد الاسنتاجات الرئيسية أن التعلم الآلي لديه فرصة جيدة لفهم أنماط تواصل حيتان العنبر, وأن وقت تطبيق هذه التكنولوجيا هو الآن. تفكيك شفرة التواصل بين الأنواع لم يبدو فقط ممكناً، بل بدا أنه الحل الأمثل غالباً. لكن هل تحليل الأنماط ساعدنا في التحدث مع الحيتان وحيوانات أخرى؟ حسناً،. الخطوة الأولى هي أن نفهم أدوات التواصل مع حوت العنبر. هذه الأصوات التي سمعتها لا تظهر كالعبارات التي نعرف، لكن هناك هيكل واضح في كيفية تواصل هذه الحيوانات. ترسل حيتان العنبر أصواتاً ذهاباً وإياباً لبعضها البعض في تسلسلات، وهناك لهجات إقليمية, مثل اللهجات البريطانية والأسترالية. هذا, بالظبط, هو سبب أن التعلم الآلي هو أداة قوية. هذه الطرق تحلل الأنماط في علاقة وخريطة ذات معنى خاص بهم. منذ سنوات قليلة، استخدم العلماء تقنية التعلم الألي للترجمة بين اثنين من اللغات البشرية الغير معروفة كليا, ليس باستخدام “روزيتا ستون” أو باستخدام قاموس, ولكن برسمها عن طريق أنماط في مساحة ذات أبعاد عالية. لكن لكي تعمل هذه الآلية بكفاءة، فإنها تحتاج إلى بيانات -- تحتاج إلى الكثير والكثير من البيانات. في منتصف القرن الماضي، جمع باحثون بحريون بصعوبة وفسروا عدة آلاف من أصوات حوت العنبر، ولكن لكي نتعلم التواصل معها، سوف نحتاج إلى تجميع ملايين، إن لم يكن عشرات الملايين من أصوات حوت العنبر المفسرة بدقة والمرتبطة بالسلوكيات. سنفعل ذلك باستخدام روبوتات غير متحركة ومستقلة وحرة الحركة, وطائرات جوية مائية، ومصفوفات هيدروليك مثبتة في الأسفل وأشياء أخرى. سوف نعمل مع شركائنا المقربين في مشروع “دومينيكا حوت العنبر” لنغطي مساحة 20 كيلومتر مربع, والتي يتردد عليها أكثر من 25 عائلة معروفة من حيتان العنبر. سوف نضع تركيزنا على تفاعلات الأمهات والأبناء، وتدريب خواريزميات- التعلم الذاتي الخاص بنا لنتعلم لغة الحوت من البداية. سوف نرسل كل هذه البيانات عن طريق خط سير معين. ونحللها باستخدام فريق الترجمة الخاص بالمشروع. بيانات الصوت الخام ستذهب لمحرك التعلم الآلي الخاص بنا, حيث تذهب أولا, لتصنف بواسطة الشكل. بعد ذلك سيبحث فريق الترجمة عن أشياء مثل بناء الجملة وإزاحة الوقت. مثال، إذا وجدنا أن حوتا كان يتحدث عن شيء بالأمس، هذا الحدث بمفرده سيُعد اكتشافا عظيما، وهو شيء ليس معروفا إلا عند البشر. وبمجرد إتقاننا للاستماع، سنحاول بحرص أن نتحدث مرة أخرى على مستوى بسيط. وأخيراً, سيبني هذا المشروع. منصة مفتوحة ستجعل البيانات الخاصة بنا متاحة للعامة, مما سيشجع المجتمع العالمي لأن يسعى في هذه الرحلة من أجل الفهم. هذه الحيوانات تعد من أكثر المخلوقات ذكاء على هذا الكوكب. تمتلك هذه الحيوانات هيكلا من قشرة مخية, وحبلا, شوكيا, وهما عضوان في البشر, مسئولان عن معتقداتنا, وعواطفنا, وذاكرتنا ولغتنا والحب. وتستطيع جميع المنصات التي نطورها أن تطبق على كائنات أخرى, للأفيال, والطيور, والفقاريات, والدلافين, ولأي حيوان. في أواخر الستينات, اكتشف عضو من فريقنا يسمى رودجر باين هذه الأصوات الصادرة عن الحيتان (تسجيل أصوات الحيتان). اكتشاف أشعل حركة ”أنقذوا الحيتان”. أدى إلى نهاية عملية صيد الحيتان, التي تتم على نطاق واسع, ومنع انقراض أنواع عديدة من الحيتان فقط من خلال إظهار صوت الحيتان. تخيل لو كنا نفهم ماذا يقولون. الآن هو الوقت المناسب لكي نفتح هذا الموضوع الضخم. الآن هو الوقت لكي نستمع بعمق, وأن نظهر لهذه الحيوانات العجيبة وبعضنا البعض احتراما جديدا, شكرا.
세정(SEJEONG) - 'Whale' LIVE CLIP
The most shining moment among my stories. My days have gone by fast everyday, The most fearless time when I wasn’t afraid of anything. I’ve lost myself somewhere along the way, Finding you hidden in the dark night sky When I walk through the purple-tinted road between the clouds. Will I be able to face you at the end of the darkness, Myself, who I’ve lost somewhere along the way? That night, I heard from a far distance the sound of a small whale. Where did you, who filled the sky full of stars, disappear? to My longing Whale, My longing Whale? The time that seemed distant, past the horizon, has already become today, When the sky that I thought I forgot spreads out with a sigh, If the road from that time is redrawn on the dazzling waves after the darkness fades, Will I be able to meet you standing at the end, Myself, who I’ve lost somewhere along the way? That night, I heard from a far distance the sound of a small whale. Where did you, who filled the sky full of stars, disappear? to My longing Whale, My longing Whale. I will shine the way for you. Don’t let me drift away. Could you wake the light in you in this moment with me? I’ve been always there for you. Won’t let you drift away. It’s so bright I will be wishing tonight To break away. hope you’ll find me. That night I heard from a far distance the sound of a small whale. You, who filled the sky full of stars, were always there for me. My forever Whale, My forever Whale, My forever Whale.

🐳State of the Whale - 002
all right, ladies and gentlemen, we are back. state of the whale, part two. uh, pardon my uh, nasally, uh- congestion. here i am dealing with the death that is cedar allergies here. but to make up for it, we have our two fearless leaders that will give you incredible updates and drip that sweet triple well, nectar in your ear. aj and max. how good is it? it goes great and it goes great. no nectar, maybe a new connector? you guys are. yeah, you're sweet, you're sweet. so today we're going to start off as always, aj and max are kind of giving you, give us the haps on where the app stands, some cool stuff, what's going on with it, where it's going, and then from that we'll jump into your user questions. you can submit questions on twitter, facebook, linkedin, youtube. if you're watching it anywhere, just uh, pop the question into the comments and we'll see it and get to it. so, without further ado, aj, the floor is yours. we're still not logged in. you wanna telling us, like, who's here, what's that? how many people are here? there's two live watchers now, both from the whale sanctuary. great, great, we're excited to have you guys. okay, good, okay, uh, you send this to the team. rubble on something, drop a link? okay, yeah, absolutely okay. so, uh, where are we holding? uh, where teams are going? uh process are getting put in place? uh, i think um, hopefully, yeah, january's uh proven to be not yet, but we're trying. january's proven to be exciting for us. um a lot of opportunity, a lot of excitement around the product and what we're doing. um working. we're very grateful for that. yeah, pixel's working. pixel's working. we're coming out of that hole. pixels are working. it's working well. um got with two clients today that pixel. they were like they were blown away with what's going on. yeah, you said the actual results. yeah, yeah, some of them came from other competitors- i won't mention their names, so that's pretty big. on the pixel side, what's still coming? um, hopefully by sunday we'll have google ads in there. uh, how to use clavio is coming, hopefully tonight as well. what are you learning? how to use clavio? so we're launching in the uh tools section. there's gonna in the utm builder there's going to be another tab for clavio- and how to set up your auto, your auto utms and clavio to match the sol scheme. so how to create utms in your cladio account so that we can track them better on the app. exactly. that's pretty cool. yeah, yeah, that's really cool. wow. inquire getting baked into your results. so essentially we can do post-purchase surveys because we know exactly who answered the survey and also who, um, who bought it from a facebook ad, and so getting those baked into your you should. everyone running a triple pencil should also have a post picture survey app running either no or inquire. those are the two that we work with right now or in those coming in next week. is any more that you guys are using? let's, let us know. we'll try to hook them in. yeah, that's uh what's coming today. and then we have uh for next week. we also have the, the, the secondary stats, so like add to cards, view content, email signup rate also coming up um sunday coming and getting added to the- probably still there. you just gave it, yeah, yeah, i just gave you guys the, the big screen. and then we have the conversion api, for facebook is going to go live early next week as well. so sending back data that we're getting from the pixel back into facebook. hopefully we'll see some lift there. the match rates that we're seeing. they're pretty amazing. so match rate on the conversion api just means when we send a piece of data back to facebook. can they actually use it? or it doesn't match a profile. but if we send an ad to cart back, do they actually know who that person was that they adopt the current? can they use it? um, so that's pretty exciting. um, then we have aggregated customer journeys is a sick screen that we're building out that is going to give you basically some genes. instead of telling you which attribution model you should use, it's just going to lay out a journey of customers before they buy. like, where did they start? how many touch points did they have? they? they came from facebook. they went to clayview and they went to google. then they went to clayview and they bought. right, understanding that journey will give you a better understanding of where to spend your retargeting dollars, when to send out your sequence. you know your, your post purchase, uh emails or your- well, this um also have sms to be able to see the cost for sms signups. so you'll have that already in the. yes, that will about. that's related to the stats, not actually to the, the german extended journeys, but yeah, definitely kind of zoned over and just okay. okay, well, that's all in pixel universe, triple proper universe. we also have a ton coming. so we have social stats that are coming very soon, essentially all the organic stats, your pages on instagram and facebook. it's a pretty big feature. we have a recharge launching pretty soon as well, um, and then we have, um, we're working on importing all the facebook data to our own servers to be able to start segmenting out, um, your ad account, some more zones. it's more like relevant for you, like some of the european clients, right also for you, if you use find and you want to, let's say, do your new row as your new customer cpa and you want to segment out a specific segment to spend on your tof campaigns and build a metric off of that, that would open up that as well. but also a good use case is, uh, some of the shopify plus guys out of europe who have different storefronts for countries and maybe just one ad account. that's a good example of this. so we'll be able to segment the ad account associated with that geographic location in that dashboard. yeah, the other thing that's related to this is also graphs for, let's say, the creative dashboard will come in as well with this. so being able to graph outro as cpm, cpc, ctr over time for your creatives and even segments of your creative, as well as graphs coming into the pixel dashboard so you can graph out different metrics over time and see how is this campaign out to their ad trending over time. um, so those are the immediate in all, that's in the immediate roadmap around the agency side. right, there's the things on the agency. yes, on the agency side, we have the combined view which we essentially built, but it's not fully baked. the portfolio portfolio view, yeah, you see all your so, before your view is coming, um, i was, i'm hoping also towards the end of next week as well, that's going to be in your all shop section for ages. or, if you have multiple stores, being able to combine blended data sets, uh, and also doing real time currency conversion on the fly, right? so if you have, uh you know, five different clients, two of them have different currencies, being able to see them all in one currency is important. ah, that's great. another example of this which i thought was a cool use case is like, uh, an agency could send a link to their blended dashboard and say: this is like our agency's, yeah, yeah, yeah, maybe embedded in your, in your own website, on your website. you can put that on there, right, you hear that rama. yeah, i think that'd be pretty cool, yeah, yeah, essentially, besides that, we're also working on internal infrastructure for the apps, like user profiles, user management, payment links in the app. so your striper account is actually connected to the triple whale. so, uh, first of all, if you cancel triple l account, it should cancel your strike. if you upgrade your triple well account, it should upgrade right, essentially, hopefully we grow with your store and these are things, and hopefully your store ends up growing. so right now, we have no no way of knowing. if you started at a 50 price point and, um, you were doing, uh, you know 100 a month or whatever, and now you're doing a million dollars a month. we- we literally don't know about it right now- take advantage while you can. yeah, all right. so, coming in um and then, like in the longer term robot, be able to count. so amazon's coming in the longer term roadmap, um, essentiall.

Is MER a Useful KPI?
i do think mer is important. i think if our mer was, we were spending 100 of our revenue on ads, i would be worried, right. so, taking to the extreme, it clearly tells you something, right? if we were spending five percent of revenue on ads, i would say there's room to grow and scale. there's probably a decently healthy correlation between mer and net profit margins. so i i do think it's important. it's it's not the only thing. it shouldn't be the only like: a good mer doesn't mean you should spend more. a bad mdr doesn't mean that that you you know that you are spending too much. however, it is one metric that can just kind of help guide you in the direction and show you the profitability. so i look at mer daily. [Music]: almost into the double digits folks. episode nine: we have cody back. he has a little bit of a vacation hangover. uh, how were the bahamas? it was good, it was dope, but excited to be back with you guys. yeah, absolutely, we're excited to have you back. we had a canadian fill in the shoes. didn't do too too bad of a job. and then, as always, i have my pic down here: ash, moani, ash, how are you good man, good, good, good. number nine, the guru himself. oh, that's a good idea. maybe that'll be the drinking episode, the drunk episode or whatever. let's do it. oh, no, no, no, um, so we're going to do something a little bit different this episode. so ash actually tossed out a thread that, uh, caught some teeth. so there's some, actually some really good questions in here. um, so i'm just gonna pepper the boys with the questions. we'll riff on the questions. this might be a shorter episode, but hey, you know, such as lives, not everything needs to be a 75 minute banker. so if you guys are ready, i'll start. start it off. let's do it, okay, so first one: this is from matthew goddard. i should actually know how to pronounce his name, because he does the production of the show, which is, uh, i feel horrible now. um, but the question is strategy on organic content creation and content created to retain customers versus to get new ones. so retention versus acquisition, like your podcast and maybe other content that you might have, cody will start with you and then ash will run to you. yeah, content in in terms of acquisition versus retention, play, yeah, that's a great question. that's a great question i would, i would say the one guy who got me thinking very differently about this. his name is jake cohen at clavio- i don't know if you guys kind of know no more. he's- oh, that's dope, he's a. he's a brilliant guy and he kind of like blew my mind and i did an interview with him. i don't want to give too much away, you know, because i haven't asked for permission to share this, but like i didn't interview with him, kind of like telling him, like because i'm obviously in their target market, like how i consume content and like what my habits look like, but also kind of what my consumption looks like in terms of, like, what is top of funnel, what is middle funnel- and i think that that's something really interesting to think about- is like for your niche, for your industry. like what are you most of your customers buying behaviors, in terms of their awareness and their consideration phases. you know, are they using youtube as a search engine? are they using now, tiktok as a search engine? i think, first of all, right before we tok about the type of content, like understanding where we're actually placing the content i think is important and then understanding, you know, is tiktok top of funnel? and is like, for us, i, i consider tiktok very top of funnel. um, 85 percent of the sessions are on the 40 page and i consider instagram very middle of funnels. so instagram is is much more you know customers. it's much more of a retention play. the type of content that we do, whether it's q, a or anything like that, is much more middle of funnel. we also have our own editorial piece where we actually use it as middle funnel. you could use this top of funnel seo acquisition and we're planning to do that with a jones road blog in the future. but i think that's the first thing is understanding where you're trying to reach people in the funnel. are you trying to get new eyeballs? what's your distribution strategy behind that? and and whether that's seo and you're doing keyword research and ranking stuff, or whether you're doing tiktok and you're trying to go viral. that should be very different content than if you are trying to retain customers and trying to educate your customers on how best to use your products. i love that. ash. what's your take? so for organic, i think on we didn't really see much growth on organic because we really started with paid right. so i think now, with channels like tiktok where we can get that organic reach, um, i think what we're kind of focusing on is putting out similar content that we're using for top of the funnel ads, but in a more or less salesy way, right. so on tik tok, we're coming out with videos like how to use our product right and what is the product good for. so, for example, collagen is good for this, this and this. and then, like you, will have several videos toking about: well, it's great for hair because it'll do this for your hair, or it's great for nails because it'll do this for your nails, right. so those are probably the types of content that we're pushing organically on tik tok and we're still trying to figure out how to like capture that audience. we haven't had any like hits right, like getting like organic reach, like a lot of it outside of paid, but i think that's probably the route will go down is just educating based on what the product is now in terms of uh retention. i think we do that better than acquisition, like organic content for acquisition, because we have, like, we have the videographer, we have videographer, video editor, um, and we're basically filming content of how to use the product or like as if you already have the product, what are ways you can use it right. so we have a whole uh recipe series like here's, you know, recipe for overnight oats coffee, iced coffee, this and that. so we're just constantly putting out content because the the question for us is how else can i take this right, like i'm not going to just take it in almond milk 30 days out of the month. i gotta like figure out ways to do it right. so we do like eat, uh, drink, bake, like those types of things where it's like all right, well, i can make pancakes, i can make a smoothie, i can make iced coffee. so i think, separately, we're still trying to figure out the organic content and like how to drive revenue that way and growth for like social. but i think retention wise, a lot of our stuff we're focusing on kind of goes on youtube which is then repurposed on our app and then also kind of shown in the community, but basically just ways on how to, how to use all the products. i have a couple questions for you guys. i'm gonna start with you, ash. don't you guys have a podcast? end the podcast. yeah, but it's it's more so for [Music], i don't. i guess it is more so for the community, right, it's more so just additional content that the community can um kind of consume tok about. yeah, that's right, that's retention, though it just seems like most of your content is is retention focused, which is totally fine, but that was good, but it isn't. i don't know. i don't know if you would call it like retention focus more so than like keeping people in the community and like just kind of because because the podcast has nothing to do with the product right at all. so in, in theory, maybe by what's the podcast called. it's called don't over spill with. so not like by my, not like by avi or anything. there's literally no connection to the company. it's from the, it's from the girls that are known in this. yeah, yeah, right, yeah. so i don't know if maybe indirectly, right, you're kind of providing entertainment to your community, but not in a way where it's like directly product related, right. so it's tough for me to say that it does help retention, but i do know that it helps with engagement within the community, which could possibly lead to higher retention if that makes.
18 Abnormally Large Animals That Actually Exist
welcome back to top five. best make sure to smash that like button and subscribe. if you do, let me know in the comments below and I'll try to reply to as many of you as I can. 18 largest animals on earth. number 18: the American alligator. if you live in the southeastern US, then you are already familiar with the big, toothy grin of the American alligator. they can reach up to 20 feet in length, their weight can exceed beyond 210 kilograms and you can usually find these crocodiles in swamps, rivers and lagoons. number 17: the white rhinoceros. the white rhinoceros has long been the target of African poachers seeking its horn and, as of today, it is one of the only five rhinoceros species still in existence. white rhinos have two horns, and rhino horns grow as much as three inches a year and have been known to grow up to 16 feet long. females use their horns to protect their young, while males use them to battle attackers. number 16: the Chinese rat snake. the Chinese rat snake can grow to nearly 18 feet in length. these are very common snakes and are seen a lot because they prefer to be active during the daylight hours. they have very large eyes, which would make one think that they can see well at night as well. number 15: the blunt nose sixgill shark, also known as a cow shark. it can grow to be over 16 feet long. it is actually the largest of its subspecies, although this is probably partially due to the fact that most of its closest relatives are extinct. number 14: the king cobra. king cobras are venomous snakes that live in South and Southeast Asia. it can grow up to 18 feet long and the animals toxic bite is powerful enough to kill an elephant. it's the largest venomous snake in the world. number 13: hippopotamus. belonging to the triad of largest land mammals in the world, together with the rhinoceros and the elephant, hippos are semi aquatik creatures that spend most of their time partially submerged in water holes like icebergs. most of their mass is hidden and if you manage to upset one of them, run. hippopotami are notoriously fast. number 12: tiger shark. last time it was cow sharks, now it's tiger sharks. they have sharp, highly serrated teeth and powerful jaws that allow them to crack the shells of sea turtles. growing slightly larger than their counterparts, they can be nearly 18 feet long and typically feed on seals, turtles, birds and even dolphins. number 11: the saltwater crocodile. growing to be over 20 feet long, this breed of crocodile is as big as it gets and as dangerous too. they are excellent swimmers and have often been spotted far out at sea. they'll feed on anything that can get their jaws on, including water, buffalo, wild boar, even sharks and many other animals. number 10: the giraffe. once a giraffe reaches adulthood, its height is often enough to protect it from lions. undoubtably the tallest living creature in the world, a giraffe can reach food sources nearly 18 feet off the ground. usually, giraffes will drink or rest in shifts, so that at least one giraffe is always on the lookout for approaching predators. many young giraffes die from lion attacks during their first year of life. number 9: the southern elephant seal. the southern elephant seal is the world's largest seal and the largest member of the order Carnivora, which includes all seals, cats, dogs, foxes, wolves, bears, raccoons, hyenas, weasels and civets. southern elephant seals are enormous: the largest of all seals, males can be over 20 feet long and weigh up to 8800 pounds or more. number 8: the slender snouted gharial. the gharial is one of the largest crocodilian species. they are between 13 to 19 point 7 feet in length and they can weigh up to a thousand pounds. they have a life expectancy in the wild of about 30 to 60 years younger riyals will eat small frogs, insects and larvae. number seven: the green anaconda, found in South Africa. it's one of the world's longest snakes. although its size is often the most exaggerated in the animal kingdom, they do grow to be up to 25 feet long. females are significantly larger than males. number 6: the orca. orcas are the largest of the dolphins and one of the world's most powerful predators. looking at all populations, orcas are generalist eaters, consuming fish, seals, sea lions and more. number five: the beluga sturgeon. living up to 120 years, these interesting looking creatures can grow to be nearly 20 feet in length. it has a cycle similar to the Salmons in that it hatches in freshwater rivers, spends most of its adult life in saltwater and returns each year to spawn upriver. number four: the green sawfish. green sawfish look a lot like sharks, but they're flattened bodies and wide pectoral fins reveal that they are actually raised. they do have rows of small rounded teeth in their mouths for crunching on invertebrates and small bony fish, which they often stun by thrashing their rostrum side-to-side along the muddy floors of bays and estuaries. number three: Baird's beaked whale. Baird's beaked whale is a deep diving cat, Asian, belonging to a group known as the beaked whales. due to their long gated beaks, the beaked whales are one of the most mysterious and least studied of all cat Asian families. Baird's beaked whales are an extremely long-lived species with males living longer. number two: the North Pacific right whale is a giant growing to over 55 feet in length and probably in excess of 80 tons and weight. females give birth to their first calf at an average age of eight to ten years. gestation lasts approximately one year. calves are usually weaned towards the end of their first year. number one: the biggest and the baddest: the blue whale. blue whales are the largest animals ever known to have lived in modern times. blue whales in the southern hemisphere reached lengths of seventy to a hundred feet, but their northern hemisphere counterparts are smaller, on average seventy-five to eighty feet. blue whales can weigh over a hundred and twenty tons. females are larger than males of the same age, the largest perhaps weighing as much as a hundred and fifty tons. there you have it: 18 largest animals on earth. if you haven't already, smash that subscribe button and hit that like button.

Draw An Elephant [Harptoons]
hey there, drawing fans. steve harpster and i've got a brand new how to draw book out and we're going to draw an elephant from this book using the number three. you ready to draw with me? you ready to draw with me? so grab your pencil and your paper. [Music]- great [Music]. [Applause]. [Music]. hey, drawing fans, welcome back, and i want to show you my new book, draw alpha tunes, where you're going to learn how to draw all kinds of cartoon characters and and animals and creatures and pets and just crazy weirdos using numbers and letters. it's a really fun book and let's draw a character from it. right now, you can see it's pretty big in size and you can order this on my website and i'll give you details about that later on. but let's draw an elephant and to draw this character, i'm going to use a harptune sketchbook. i'm very proud of these sketchbooks. uh, you know, as a collector of sketchbooks, be able to print and sell my very own sketchbook. it's really cool. i'm very excited about that. so i'm going to turn my paper this way and, oh, let me charge my pens and let's get ready for step number one. okay, so the first thing we're gonna do, we're gonna draw a number three. pretty easy: [Music]. in this next step we're going to start by adding the eyes on this part of our three. so i'm going to draw these two cartoony eyes right here and then the next thing we're going to work on is the ear, and i'm going to draw sort of a curved line with three curved lines at the end of it and then a little inside part of the ear, like so [Music]. next we need to work on the top of the head. so we're just going to draw a curved line from the top of the three to the top of the ear and, of course, three little cartoon hairs. of course you could add any kind of hair you like. next we need to draw the trunk. so we're gonna start at the bottom of the eye. we're gonna draw a line that goes down like this: now we're gonna come over just a little bit and then go back up to this part of the three. [Music]. okay, now we need to draw the mouth. so we're going to draw a little curved line here for a cheek, and then from the bottom of the three or the end of the three and draw a line up to the cheek. you just create the mouth. let's draw some lines for a detail on that trunk. this shows that the trunk bends and has little lines where the the trunk bends. [Music]. we're going to draw the front foot and we're just gonna draw this unfinished rectangle shape and a back foot, another unfinished rectangle shape. [Music]. okay, let's start at the top of the ear. we're going to draw the elephant's back. we just go from the top of the ear down to that unfinished rectangle shape that represents the back foot. and now i'm going to draw a little line there makes the mouth look like it's open, gives a little bit of dimension. let's draw a line from the bottom of the three to the front leg and connect those legs together with another line and it's really coming together looking like an elephant. let's draw some toenails- excellent. oh, and one more thing: that's out of tail. but we're not done. we are still one more step. [Music]. okay, we're going to draw the legs and feet on the other side of the body. so i see part of them. obviously there's some overlapping, and let's add some toenails and then i'm gonna add a little bit of a shadow here. [Music]. and there you go. you just drew an elephant using the number three. how awesome is that. but we're not done. nope, not yet. now we're gonna take this elephant and we're gonna spin- that's right, the wheel of crazy. i do this at school visits. it's a big hit. basically, i spin this random wheel, whatever it lands on. we have to transform our elephant into this character, so let's give it a spin and see what we land on.
