International Day of Awareness for the Dolphins of Taiji
September 1, 2015 in the World
September 1st marked the beginning of the annual dolphin drive hunt in Taiji, Japan – an eight month long killing spree made infamous in the 2009 award-winning documentary The Cove.  On average, the Taiji dolphin drive will result in the death of over 1,000 dolphins and the capture of 200 dolphins for the captivity trade.
Although the powerful Japan Fisheries Agency maintains that the yearly Taiji dolphin drive is an important part of Japan’s “food culture”, the drive itself is fueled primarily through the profits from sales to the multi-million dollar marine mammal captivity industry.  A dolphin slaughtered for meat, for example, fetches around $600 on the market, while those destined for aquariums or marine parks can be sold for up to $300,000.

Beginning of Meteorological Autumn
September 1, 2015 in Northern Hemisphere
In meteorology for the Northern hemisphere, autumn or fall begins on September 01, 2015. It is also called the beginning of meteorological fall. Autumn marks the transition from summer into winter when the arrival of night becomes noticeably earlier. The meteorological seasons are divided according to the calendar months. In the period before computers it simplified statistics. Therefore, meteorologists consider autumn to be the months of September, October and November.
Autumn in poetry has often been associated with melancholy. The possibilities of summer are gone on early fall, and the chill of winter is on the horizon. Skies turn grey, and many people turn inward, both physically and mentally.
Autumn leaf color is a phenomenon that affects the normally green leaves of many deciduous trees and shrubs by which they take on, during a few weeks in the autumn season, one or many colors that range from red to yellow. The phenomenon is commonly called fall colors and autumn colors. In some areas of Canada and the United States, “leaf peeping” tourism is a major contribution to economic activity. This tourist activity occurs between the beginning of color changes and the onset of leaf fall.
