The Wild One
The film's screenplay was based on Frank Rooney's short story "Cyclists' Raid", published in the January 1951 Harper's Magazine and anthologized in The Best American Short Stories 1952. Rooney's story was inspired by sensationalistic media coverage of an American Motorcyclist Association motorcycle rally that got out of hand on the Fourth of July weekend in 1947 in Hollister, California. The overcrowding, drinking and street stunting were given national attention in the July 21, 1947, issue of Life, with a staged photograph of a wild drunken man on a motorcycle. The events, conflated with the newspaper and magazine reports, Rooney's short story, and the film The Wild One are part of the legend of the Hollister riot.

Wildlife rehabilitators have access to the highest abundance and diversity of wildlife species of any government, academic, or non-profit organization in North America. That provides wildlife rehabilitators with a unique "window" on wildlife health and invaluable information that no other group can provide.
To better assist wildlife rehabilitators and researchers with information management, The Wildlife Center of Virginia has created a user-friendly online system for patient management and data analysis designed for wildlife rehabilitators and wildlife health monitoring professionals. This system is called WILD-ONe (aka Wildlife Incident Log/Database and Online Network).
WILD-ONe reduces time spent on paperwork and allows for accurate record keeping and report generation. WILD-ONe enables wildlife rehabilitators to contribute to a comprehensive global rehabilitation dataset created to assess trends in wildlife health.
The Hakuna Mipaka LE, designed in collaboration with NORQAIN ambassador and wildlife sanctuary founder Dean Schneider, has an interesting philanthropic bent with 10 percent of the earnings donated to the Hakuna Mipaka Oasis. So it's a shame that this is the busiest of the watches, with a "lion fur" pattern on both the dial (sort of successful) and the black-vegan rubber strap (less successful), and a 20-ish word statement engraved on the back, potentially narrowing the appeal.
". . . at the bottom of the steps he found a large high-ceilinged space, several large rooms connected by wide arched openings. The basements of multiple adjoining buildings had been dug deeper and merged. The original rough foundation stones were exposed, but they somehow stood atop crisp new concrete walls, the lines of the steel forms still visible. Standup tables ringed the room. Rope lights hung from the ceiling in wild, tangled loops. . . .
Adding native plants to our gardens has become increasingly urgent because, as more land is developed for housing and businesses, the environmental web of life has become ever more fragmented. Butterflies, birds, bees and other wildlife have a harder time finding the plants they depend on for food, shelter, and raising their young. Gardens with native plants help to fill this need.
