Triangular Trade Depiction..
A triangle is a polygon with 3 edges and 3 vertices..A classic example is the colonial molasses trade..Sugar (often in its liquid form, molasses) from the Caribbean was traded to Europe or New England, where it was distilled into rum..The profits from the sale of sugar were used to purchase manufactured goods, which were then shipped to West Africa, where they were bartered for slaves.. The trip itself took 5 to twelve weeks..The first leg of the triangle was from a European port to Africa..When the ship arrived, its cargo would be sold or bartered for slaves.. On the second leg, ships made the journey of the Middle Passage from Africa to the New World..Many slaves died of disease in the crowded holds of the slave ships..Once the ship reached the New World, enslaved survivors were sold in the Caribbean or the American colonies, and loaded with export goods for a return Voyage,the third leg, to their home port..The ship then returned to Europe to complete the triangle..The Trade is a model, not an exact description of the ship's route..The term "triangular trade" also refers to a variety of other trades which evolved before the American Revolutionary War between Great Britain, the colonies of British North America, and British colonies in the Caribbean..The shipment of Newfoundland salt cod & corn from Boston in British vessels to southern Europe..This also included the shipment of wine and olive oil to Britain..A "sugar triangle" developed in the 1820s and 1830s whereby American ships took local produce to Cueba, then brought sugar or coffee from Cuba to the Baltic coast (Russian Empire and Sweden), then bar iron and hemp back to New England..Puritan Separatist Pilgrims from England first settled in the region in 1620, forming the Plymouth Colony, the first successful English settlement in the Americas..

Two years later, Fate magazine published "Sea Mystery at Our Back Door", a short article by George X..Sand covering the loss of several planes & ships, including the loss of Flight 19, a group of 5 U.S. Navy Grumman TBM Avenger torpedo bombers on a training mission.. Sand's article was the first to lay out the now-familiar triangular area where the losses took place..In the April 1962 issue of American Legion magazine, author Allan W. Eckert wrote that the flight leader had been heard saying, "We are entering white water, nothing seems right.. We don't know where we are, the water is green, no white".. He also wrote that officials at the Navy board of inquiry stated that the planes "flew off to Mars..

Tim Buckley + Dolphins - Whistle Test (May '74) +Hinkley on butterfly peacock bass..

Dolphins are found living in bodies of water around the world..Most of them live in saltwater but they can also live in freshwater locations..They are very smart creatures and have the intelligence to modify their habitat when possible for survival..A military dolphin is a dolphin trained for military uses..Dolphins are still being trained by the US Navy for other tasks as part of the U.S. Navy Marine Mammal Program..A number of militaries have employed dolphins for various purposes from finding mines to rescueing lost or trapped humans..In some parts of the world, such as Taiji, Japan and the Faroe Islands, dolphins are traditionally considered as food, and are killed in harpoon or drive hunts..Dolphin meat is dense and such a dark shade of red as to appear black..Orcas, the largest species of dolphin, have been involved in fatal attacks on humans in captivity..There have been human health concerns associated with the consumption of dolphin meat in Japan after tests showed that dolphin meat contained high levels of Mercury... Isis, keeper of the magick flame, behold thy shrouded minions, demons of the dark, assembled to prepare before the altar of thy eternal flame a neophyte to serve thee in thy mystic labyrinth..Why, your journey has just begun!..And where would our royal highness wish us to sail?..Ahoy on board!..Opportunity knocks, but never twice...
