    As announced in March 2016, SeaWorld is transitioning from theatrical orca shows to a more educational presentation reflecting more natural behaviors of the whales. The first of these “live documentary”-style presentations, called Orca Encounter, will debut at SeaWorld San Diego this summer. SeaWorld Orlando and SeaWorld San Antonio will follow by 2019. The final "One Ocean Shamu" show was conducted at SeaWorld San Diego on Sunday, Jan. 8. Their interim educational orca presentation called a “Killer Whale Presentation” started on Monday, Jan. 9. They have set up temporary seating (bleachers) around the orca underwater viewing area pool and will provide our guests this educational presentation while the new Orca Encounter backdrop is constructed at the main pool. Guests to SeaWorld San Diego will continue to experience live orca presentations, as they make preparations for the new education-based Orca Encounter to debut this summer. Guests will learn how killer whales behave in the wild, how they move, hunt and navigate, what they eat and even how they communicate. "Orca Encounter" will not only help guests gain a deeper appreciation and respect for the orcas, but will leave them with a new sense of determination and purpose to help preserve the future of these majestic animals. This new presentation will also look at broader themes such as research, rescue, conservation, habitats and distribution, husbandry and care, and social structures.  This will inspire as well as educate guests about the majesty of these complex animals and reinforce the company’s commitment to provide educational experiences with the park’s resident Orcas.

    I found a video on YouTube called "Tilikum Died - SeaWorld Executives EXPOSED: The Killing of Tilikum Blackfish Killer Whale Dies " made by Bright Insight.

    It shows that Joel Many, who came from the general motors Saturn and Saab divisions, has a base pay of $1million, but because SeaWorld is a publicly traded company, made 11.3 MILLION DOLLARS last year!

    And it's not just him, Jack Roddy the chief of human resources who came from Starbucks, Peter J. Crage the chief financial officer from Extended Stay America (a hotel chain), Anthony Esparza the Chief Creative Officer who came from a design firm and other entertainment parks, are all MILLIONAIRES! All of the corporate executives, who left Tilikum to die in that tank, make the decisions in SeaWorld and all of their other parks! Their not marine biologists, they never were, what they are focused on is making money. So who would you rather believe? Experts who have spent most of their lives studying wild Orcas from birth to death, or just a bunch of people that want to solely make money from animal abuse and probably know next to NOTHING about these animals?

    Please share Bright Insights video, more people need to know about this. He might also do a video on Lolita and Seaquarium soon.

    Circus Vargas embarks on a brand new epic adventure under the big top. Debuting their innovative new production at Del Mar Fairgrounds before moving on to Mission Bay, National City and Escondido, Circus Vargas will divide performances between the four San Diego locations from Jan. 19 through March 13, with a special matinee and evening show added on Monday, Feb. 20 for President’s Day. The show Goggles, gears, and gadgets set the stage for Circus Vargas’ retro-futuristic production, Steam Cirque! Join them on a journey of fantastic proportions where children of all ages will marvel at the wacky and wonderful cast of characters that come alive in this exciting steampunk, science fiction fantasy inspired circus odyssey. Arrive 45 minutes early for an entertaining, interactive pre-show celebration, where kids can create their own magic under the big top, learning circus skills such as juggling, balancing and more. Meet and mingle with the entire cast after each performance. Capture the fun by posing for pics or selfies with your favorite cast members, all part of an unforgettable Circus Vargas experience. The storyline An eccentric group of adventure seekers stumble upon a traveling circus in an imaginary Victorian city, far, far-away. Steam Cirque’s peculiar protagonist, part magician-part inventor, attempts to industrialize the circus by incorporating his steam powered mechanical contraptions into the ordinary, typical circus rigging, filling the big top with new, imaginative acrobatic apparatus for the artists to perform their acts. Creative inspiration Husband and wife team Nelson and Katya Quiroga’s inspiration for this year’s production came to them over a casual dinner with friends. While reminiscing of traveling, their many adventures and how fast time has passed, Nelson remarked suddenly that he’d felt as if he’d been “Around the World in 80 days!” referring to a novel from French author Jules Verne’s collection, “Voyages Extraordinaire.” That comment and the subsequent conversation that followed morphed into hours of story telling. “It’s been quite the journey,” says Katya. “Sometimes we don’t even believe it ourselves.” Steam Cirque is inspired by adventure, colored by imagination and brought to life by the cast of Circus Vargas. General admission tickets are $22 to $32 for children and $27 to $37 for adults. Reserved ringside seating is $52 to $67 for children and $57 to $72 for adults.

    Want more people to ride bikes? 1) FIX THE G.D. STREETS!! ALL of them! Not just the Council members/ upper crust neighborhoods. PB looks like a war zone. And I don't mean a shovelful of asphalt by a county drone.2) Cars and bikes don't mix. A 2-foot bike lane, in the gutter, alongside roaring traffic is an accident in the making.3)Better yet put the Council on bikes and let them ride across PB.
    Farmers Insurance Open hails charitable, social approach for this year's event

    San Diegans are fortunate enough to claim the Torrey Pines Golf Course as their own. The course, arguably one of the premier courses nationally and internationally, has recently been gearing up on all fronts for the Farmers Insurance Open 2017. While the course shall play the same, new partnerships and resulting amenities will definitely change the way PGA tournaments are conducted. With Tiger Woods and local San Diegan Phil Mickelson back on the board once again, this year’s open will surely be one for the ages. Things are a bit more relaxed at Torrey Pines than Augusta National (as one example). This being the case, it only seems natural for the tournament, located on such a pristine parcel of California coastline, to reflect the character of the area. Peter Ripa, CEO of The Century Club, knows this all too well. “First of all, we’re extremely excited to have Tiger back,” said Ripa. “He is an athlete that truly transcends the sport. Last year, we had 22 million viewers. For one week, San Diego will be the epicenter of the golf universe. With Tiger involved, you can almost rest assured that those numbers will certainly double. Of course, it is a tremendous draw, but that is one of the countless reasons to make it out thigh year.” Although the larger crowd will lead to an increased number of marshals, this by no means aims to put a damper on spectators’ enjoyment. Quite the opposite, actually. This year the Farmers Insurance Open has begun to incorporate nearly every sporting event social amenities of the greatest quality for spectators, as well as some most could never imagine at a PGA tournament. One are is located near the idyllic 16th green is a spectator “flight deck,” which is raised about 6 to 8 feet off the ground. This deck, divided into the Grey Goose section and Williams Hill Wine Lounge, will offer participants a 360-degree view of the canyons, Pacific ocean, and, of course, the green. Another amenity area dubbed “The Fringe” will be located as am overlook on the 15th green and will hold around 1,000 people. To be allowed entrance to this area, however, ticket owners must possess a premium ticket. Ripa explains the need for such amenities: “We have tons of private clients coming in this year, and have actually set up cabanas with private bartenders and small plates to suit their needs. These cabanas are completely open-air, which allows participants to have a friendly conversation, grab a drink or two, and watch the action on the green all at the same time. San Diego is such a social, outdoorsy city, and we feel the need to represent that at this year's tournament.” One aspect Ripa continues to convey is the emphasis on food and beverage quality for attendees, as well as overall social interaction and enjoyment. Far from the typical bag lunch sandwich, chips, beer or hot dogs and hamburgers available at typical tournament dates, the Farmers Insurance Open has provided a wealth of options. “Perhaps one of our most featured items this year will be our breakfast burrito, which will contain a healthy portion of ‘Cardiff Crack’ tri-tip beef,” said Ripa. “Also, there will be tremendous Thai food, and since we will be airing on EST, we will be offering drink specials daily around 3 p.m.” Some folks may find this level of comfortability excessive, but the fact of the matter is that while the event is set up to propagate the course and garner revenue, it is truly philanthropic by nature. This year, The Century Club has partnered with several charitable organizations, all of varying scopes and sizes. One organization, in particular, is the Boys to Men mentoring program, which is an active participant in both the tournament and “One Wave Challenge” on Jan. 21 at the La Jolla Shores. The Century Club’s program, Champions for Youth, will aid in whatever resources necessary, and through the Classy peer to peer funding network. The Farmers Insurance Open and Century Club will charge no fees for said resources, providing these charitable organizations a level of exposure that would inevitably be out of their reach. “This year's approach is not traditional compared to other majors,” said Ripa. “But that is what we’re trying to convey. We aim to bring a level of approachability unseen at many other tournaments, and feel as though we’re set on the right path thus far.”

    New Year, New You: Find your inner warrior with oceanfront yoga in Pacific Beach

    Steve Hubbard (aka NamaSteve), showcases oceanfront yoga in Pacific Beach’s Palisade Park cornering Ocean Boulevard and Law Street. Hundreds, yes hundreds, flock to his weekend classes nestled on a grassy knoll sidling the ocean cliffs. The all-level, donation-based classes juxtapose Pacific Beach’s sunshine, tempered winds and the roar of the waves. Hubbard combines his knowledge of all things yoga with the power and magnificence of the local scenery. “Oceanfront yoga encourages students to discover their personal greatness,” says the 40-year-old Pacific Beach resident. “Yoga helps us to remember that we’re powerful beyond belief. I lead physically powerful classes that are introspective and meditative. I encourage students to listen to their inner intelligence and to honor themselves.” Described as affordable and accessible to everyone, Hubbard admitted that while teaching at the oceanfront venue has its challenges, the positives outweigh the negatives. “There are unpredictable challenges – I can’t make the ocean any quieter – and there’s pure joy,” he says. “Students experience an environment that aligns with their natural state of being. People show up week after week after week – my biggest class was close to 300 – because they realize that they’re doing something that’s super healthy to help and heal themselves.” Hubbard noted that he works with the sounds of the wind and waves by projecting his voice from his diaphragm while “not screaming.” The park accommodates classes that grow “sideways” and even in light rains they still attract 60-100 participants. Even pouring rains garner a few who miss Hubbard’s cancellation notice sent by way of his social network. The self-taught yogi teaches with “no rules” and revels in building relationships with neighbors, residents and visitors. “I’m not bound by studio rules,” he says. “I have the freedom to read the class and give students what they need. My oceanfront yoga classes have become a part of the neighborhood, even the town. “People contact me every week from everywhere to say, ‘I’m coming from here to practice oceanfront yoga with you in Pacific Beach.’ And it’s rare that I go anywhere in San Diego without running into someone from class.” Hubbard’s love of volleyball is responsible for landing the Buffalo, N.Y. transplant in Southern California to discover the ancient practice. Yoga became an athletic technique to improve his jump serve. Hubbard soon discovered that it offered so much more. “My very first class was like nothing I had ever experienced,” he explains. “I knew that yoga could create balance in my life while enhancing physical vitality, emotional equanimity and mental clarity. Yoga is one of the greatest tools in my personal growth journey.” Although Hubbard’s nine-year odyssey stands strong and harbors no intention of slowing down, that wasn’t always the case. In 2013, after teaching oceanfront yoga for more than four years, Hubbard was ticketed twice by Parks and Recreation rangers, noting that a congregation of more than 49 people violated the city’s municipal code. Determined to keep his Vinyasa flowing in front of the ocean backdrop, Hubbard fought what he described as a ticket comparable to a parking fine. “Parks and Recreation refused to offer me a permit,” he said. “So I refused to move. No law states a right to remove people from a public park. Those tickets violated my right to freedom of speech and everyone else’s right to peacefully assemble. I went to court. The judge ruled that the municipal code was unconstitutional and I haven’t heard from the city since.” The oceanfront class takes place every Saturday and Sunday from 10 to 11:30 a.m. A donation bin stands on Hubbard’s front porch. Proceeds are shared with charities including Penelope’s Purpose, The American Heart Association, The Susan G. Komen Foundation, Jeans for Justice and Yoga for the Homeless. “Yoga and meditation move me towards living at my full potential,” he concludes. “And I truly believe that yoga can do the same for everyone.” HEALTHFUL LIVING When: Saturdays and Sundays from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Where: Pacific Beach’s Palisade Park, above Law Street beach. Cost: Donations accepted. Info: www.namasteveyoga.com.
