Various of stranded sperm whales, wallowing in water in a salt harvest field 2. Wide of ship trying to rescue stranded whales 3. Various of stranded whales 4. Mid of rescue ship at sea 5. Various of whales STORYLINE Local authorities have been trying to rescue four sperm whales that were found stranded in shallow water on the coast of east China's Jiangsu Province, Chinese broadcaster CCTV reported on Saturday. The whales were spotted by fishermen on Friday at 6 a.m. local time (2200 GMT on Thursday) in a salt harvest field by the coastal city of Yancheng. The local fishermen called fishing authorities to help, and a large-scale operation to rescue the whales was launched. Some relief came on Friday for the whales when high tide hit at around noon, partially covering the aquatic mammals in water. Attempts were still being made to return the whales to the deep sea on Saturday. The whales, which measure around 16 metres long and weigh around 30 tonnes, are in a weak condition. Local fishermen have guessed that the whales might have found themselves too close to shore while chasing cuttlefish or helping to keep one another afloat.

STUDY REVEALS CUTTLEFISH VISION ā€™(2020)
If you've ever seen a 3D movie, you know those little glasses you wear make the screen come alive. Now, researchers at the University of Minnesota are using 3D glasses on cuttlefish, and the findings may provide insight into the human brain and vision. Trevor Wardill and Paloma Gonzalez-Bellido, assistant professors for the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior in the College of Biological Sciences, put 3D glasses on cuttlefish and created an underwater movie screen with shrimp on it to determine how cuttlefish determine the best distance to strike at moving prey. Their study is catching attention around the world. The findings showed that cuttlefish can see in 3D, very similar to humans. "And that they can compute this in their brain, which most people think invertebrates aren't very smart, and these are clearly able to do quite sophisticated computations," Wardill said. "While cuttlefish have similar eyes to humans, their brains are significantly different," added Gonzalez-Bellido. "We know that cuttlefish brains aren't segmented like humans. They do not seem to have a single part of the brain ā€” like our occipital lobe ā€” dedicated to processing vision. Our research shows there must be an area in their brain that compares the images from a cuttlefish's left and right eye and computes their differences." The next step is for researchers to gain a better understanding of how vision in general works and what happens in our brains.

Underwater wild Pharoah Cuttlefish (Sepia pharaonis) Cephalopod mating ritual
Coral reefs are the one of earths most complex ecosystems, containing over 800 species of corals and one million animal and plant species. Here we see a shallow coral reef with several mating Pharoah Cuttlefish (Sepia pharaonis). Cuttlefish (Cephalopod) are able to change colour to blend in with their surroundings by way of camouflage, as seen here. This is a primal instinctive animal behaviour, that helps to ensure their survival. Image taken whilst scuba diving in Phi Phi archipelago, Krabi, Thailand.

TAKASHI HASHIMOTO, CHIEF OF THE GOVERNMENT'S FISHERIES DIVISION, SAID ON SUNDAY (26 FEBRUARY) THAT KILLING MIGHT APPEAR A MERCILASS ACT TO OUTSIDERS BUT TO LOCAL FISHERMEN IT WAS AN ACT OF SELF DEFENCE, "A LIFE OR DEATH MATTER". THE FISHERMEN WHO CLUBBED AND STABBED THE DOLPHINS TO DEATH ARE TO COLLECT 12 DOLLARS IN GOVERNMENT BOUNTY FOR EACH ONE KILLED. BUT THEY ARE DISSATISFIED WITH THE MONEY AND SAY THEY WANT MORE NEXT TIME. FRIDAY'S SLAUGHTER STAINED THE SEA RED AND THE BEACHES OF IKI ISLAND WERE COVERED WITH GORE THE FOLLOWING DAY.

AFTER BATTERING THE DOLPHINS THE FISHERMEN CUT OFF THEIR HEADS, SLIT THEIR STOMACHS, TIED THEIR BODIES TO CONCRETE BLOCKS AND DUMPED THEM INTO THE SEA. COMPLAINING ABOUT THE SMALLNESS OF THE BOUNTY PAID FOR THE KILLINGS THE FISHERMEN COMPLAINED:"EVEN IF WE CATCH THE DOLPHINS WE CANNOT DISPOSE OF THEM IN ANY USEFUL WAY. BUT IF WE DON'T KILL THEM WE LOSE OUR LIVELIHOOD." IN NEW YORK GREENPEACE ENVIRONMENTAL PRESERVATION SOCIETY SPOKESMAN ROBERT TAUNT SAID THE NAGASAKI PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD BE BROUGHT BEFORE AN INTERNATIONAL "COURT OF LAW FOR THE SEAS" FOR AUTHORISING THE KILL. "JAPAN HAS SLAUGHTERED WHALES BY THE THOUSANDS," HE SAID, "AND NOW THEY ARE ENGAGED IN A MADNESS THAT MUST NOT GO UNNOTICED OR UNCONDEMNED." TAUNT WENT ON TO SAY THE INCIDENT COULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED IN THE UNITED STATES OR ANY NATION THAT CONSIDERED ITSELF TO BE CIVILISED. HE SAID HE CONSIDERED THE OFFICIALS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SLAUGHTER TO BE "CRIMINAL".

SILVER GIRL (aka SILVER MEDALLIONS)
Clerkenwell, London. <br/> <br/>M/S of a beatniky young silversmith, Dian, smoking a cigar as she works at a bench in her dimly lit studio. C/U of her grubby hands carving a medallion engraving. The narrator puts on a New York Beatnik accent - "We cats from Artsville, we just dig that real sweet beat. Man - just button your ears to that crazy sound". C/U of a charcoal drawing hanging on the wall. Extreme C/U of the engraving being carved. C/U of Dian as she puffs at her cigar. M/S of Dian holding the engraving up and gently blowing away dust produced from carving. Extreme C/U of the engraving being carved - "Dian, in fact, is the only girl designer of men's jewellery in the country". M/S of Dian sawing a cuttlefish in half - "Dian makes a mould by a traditional method". C/U of Dian sawing. Dian rubs the two halves of the cuttlefish together "until they are flush". C/U of Dian. Dian cuts a small hollow into one of the halves to pour the silver into, she then presses the engraving in the soft texture of the cuttlefish. M/S of Dian binding the two halves together with wire. <br/> <br/>Dian takes the cuttlefish over to a fireplace, on the mantelpiece is a human skull - an example of the bohemian ambience of the studio. Dian picks up a blow torch. C/U of Dian directing the blowtorch at the cuttlefish while using an iron ladle to pore molten silver into the hollow - "Dian no longer prepares all her own moulds. Such is the demand for her work that she has found it necessary to allocate the bulk of this process to outsiders". Dian lifts the cuttlefish from the clamp holding it in place in the fireplace and takes it back to her work bench. <br/> <br/>The background music fits the beatniky atmosphere of this story - very modern jazz! Dian uses pliers to cut the wire and open the mould. C/U of Dian filing the silver medallion to trim the edges - "real smooth, man"! Extreme C/U of Dian polishing the medallion. Extreme C/U of the finished article. Extreme C/U of a pair of cufflinks designed by Dian. C/U of a silver eagle medallion. C/U of a knight on horseback broach.
