Bustling Churchill

Today we saw a two polar bears, 4 arctic foxes and 4 red foxes. We spent the morning in our bus looking for bears, then we went into Churchill. Afterwards more bear spotting, then dinner, then class.

Churchill has a population of 850 people. The primary industry in town is the grain elevator. Trains come from all over Canada with grain, and that grain is stored in the elevator and then shipped out to be sold in Europe. In addition to the grain elevator the town relies on tourism.

Not only can bears can wander into town, but also it is very cold here in the winter (it’s colder than our winter right now, and they are just getting started) so the major city buildings are in the town center. The school, library and government buildings are all in one indoor place. There is a hockey rink in there too.

I met a polar bear researcher at dinner. She said she has wanted to study animals since she was five years old. She has been concentrating on identifying polar bears by their whisker spots. She says every bear seems to have unique markings on their nose.

In our post dinner class tonight we learned that there are 19 different polar bear regions in the world, and the bears have different characteristics. For example the hudson Bay polar bears have smaller heads than the Alaskan bears. Hudson Bay bears have learned to come onshore to find food, while other bears always are out on the ice (hunting for seals.)

We ended our night by watching the YouTube video: What Does the Fox Say? It’s by some swedish group and has people dancing around in the forest. I don’t get it, but it entertained the group.

So very tired. So many layers of clothing….more on that later.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
