How the Fort Hall Bull Riding Mayhem was.

Hello! Benziler here and welcome back to Benziler’s Life Blog! We are back with another blog!

There is not heads up info and the only topic being covered is what the title says.

***

It was amazing. My first time seeing bucking bulls in action and bulls in reality not on screen.

Wiley Petersen is nice and amazing. The vip’s didn’t get a meet and greet but he smiled, waved, and said hi to everyone. When he went to go and talk to one of the other hosts, he stopped and waved at my dad and I–he said hi too and smiled.

The bulls and riders were outstanding! The bulls were adorable! Both, the bulls and riders, were working really hard.

The vip tent, was not a meet and greet area. It was a catered food and drink tent. Super cool. We didn’t even have to pay, as expected. My dad and I didn’t know that we had to go to the VIP Tent before we went to the vip benches and area, but luckily they were just about to start putting stuff up when my dad got us cookies and sprites.

We got a vip bag that has different items in it, along with a signed poster by Wiley Petersen. They referred to it as “Riley Petersen’s bull riding mayhem” cause he is a former pro and something something. Can’t remember what they said. Sorry😹.

I was rooting for Wesley Pablo. But I’m glad that Coby Johnson won.

Congrats Coby Johnson! 🎊

Wolf(wolves)

Hello! Benziler here and welcome back to Benziler’s Life Blog! We are back with another blog!

Heads up info|| Tons of topics gonna be covered in this! Be aware.

Topics being covered:
  1. Wolves (definition)
  2. Different type of wolves
  3. Mating (and more)
  4. The pack
  5. Establishing how the pack works
  6. Habitat
  7. Some people have them as pets
  8. People are hunting them!!!

Wolves (definition).

There are many definitions for wolves. 3, I found. 2 of them are for people. 1 of them is the one we are looking for!

Wolf|| a wild carnivorous mammal of the dog family, living and hunting in packs.

Wolves are both native in Eurasia and Northern America. Also, they have widely exterminated. Furry, coated animal.

Some dogs look like wolves, like the wolf dog and Alaskan and/or Siberian Husky (all I know).

Different type of wolves.

There are 32 types of wolves. (Probably more lol).

The types:

Mating (and more).

In this case, mate does not mean friend.

Wolves mate for life. However, most of the time only the Male and female alpha’s will mate. They usually have one litter of wolf cubs per year.

A male and female wolf begin to breed between 2 & 3 yrs of age and are believed (known and do) mate for life.

The pack.

The wolf pack, is a group of wolves that hunt. They are an extended family of parents, offspring (kids), siblings, aunts, uncles, [cousins], and sometimes dispersers from another pack.

Their are rankings in the pack.

Alpha|| the wisest, strongest, highest ranking member of the pack as they hold all control of the pack. They are the leaders.

^responsibilities: leads pack on hunts, establishes pack territory and its safety, accepting strangers into the pack or driving errant wolves out of the pack.They are responsible for keeping the pack in order and in control and will take many precautions to see that the pack is not disturbed. Each pack member is considered family but respect is still presistant. The Alpha couple are always the first to eat from a kill, gets the biggest portions and choicest cuts of food. They tell the pack what to do, where to go, and how to work without questions from their members. Keeping things at a strict basis is their way of showing their care and concern for the pack-mates.The Alpha wolves can also choose their most trusted companions to become their Betas. They demand respect and are in the position to punish or banish those who do not show it. An alphas command can not be disobeyed without consequences. There are alpha male and female. [Resources for the ranking of pack.]

Beta|| is the highest ranking wolf in the pack just below the Alpha couple. The Beta wolf is essentially the second-in-command of the wolf pack and beyond this most significant point, the Beta is otherwise similar to wolves in the High rank. When the Alpha’s are absence (which for reason can be surveying areas, chosing new territory, editing sites, etc), it is the Beta’s job to make sure the pack is organized and under control.

^Any problems that occur in the pack, the Betas report to the Alphas and allow the Alphas to take control. When the Alphas are indeed away for a time, these wolves are the next in authority and demand the same respect and control from their pack-mates. 

Delta|| third in command as they are below the alphas and betas but are still higher ranked than the other wolves. Usually take control of the spars and training with the if or when the betas and/or alpha’s have to much on their plate and cannot do the job right then and there.

Lead warrior|| takes his/her orders directly from the Alpha(s) and/or beta(s). They are the main, leader and general commander of the warriors of the pack.

^warrior wolves protect the pack with their lives! They do not back down (without a fight) from a fight with something that is threatening the pack. They go on border control to keep an eye on the pack’s border. (Usually bring new wolves to the alphas and/or betas.)

Warriors|| amount of warriors depends on the size of the pack. They are the guardians and protectors of the pack. The warriors will roam the pack lands ensuring it’s safety.

^keep watch at night, protect the pack w/ their lives. If threatened, and/or the hunters and scouters are in danger they take up the portion of the hunters and scouters and fight for the pack’s safety. They must be quick to think and remain calm in all given situations.

Hunters|| are responsible for gathering food and/or service for the pack or track down the ones that are threatening the pack.

^they mostly introduce their recruits to the alpha’s to see if the other wolf will or will not be accepted. They protect the pack by fighting off enemies/predators. If they are the ones being threatened then they take up the role as the “decoy” until the pack has found safety. When and once the “coast is clear” they will meet up with the pack hours later. (Most likely to insure that there are no more enemies/predators around).

Healers|| when a member of the pack is injured either in a fight/battle, or an accident they are sent to healer or others call them the “pack doctors”.

^healers can either be gifted to heal another wolf and/or are good with medicine and looking for other wolves. Healers must and have to stay out of pack fights as they are needed to heal wolves. However, if there are no healers then the pack grows weaker.

Omegas|| Usually they’re are 2 omegas in the pack. One male and one female which is similar to the alpha but at the opposite end of the pack ranking system. The Omega pair have no authority in the pack except over pups (to support the Elders) and virtually no rights.

^Omegas do not take part in the hunts instead they remain at the dens and are the babysitters to the wolf cubs–teaching the young wolves skills and providing advice for them given by the alpha(s) and/or beta(s). They are the last allowed to feed from kills, these wolves get the leanest and worst portions of meat and typically risk starvation during poor hunting periods.

Bull Riding Mayhem (day before going to it!)

Hello! Benziler here and welcome back to Benziler’s Life Blog! We are back with another blog!

It’s been a few days, so sorry. Thank you for everyone that is following and such–it means the world to me!

There is no heads up info today, lucky you!

Topics being covered:
  1. Bull riding mayhem definition (and more).
  2. The vip tent (what it is and such).
  3. Appearance by former bull rider, Wiley Peterson.
  4. I’m going (more)!

Bull Riding Mayhem Definition (and more).

The Bull Riding Mayhem sounds exactly what it is right?

Bull Riding Mayhem|| Showcasing great bull riding action. Family fun and rodeo {Category}.

I do not know if there is going to be food and drinks or not, but if you know then Comment!

For those of you that do not know what Bull riding is, well, lucky for you Wiki has a article/page on it!

Bull riding|| is a rodeo sport that involves a rider getting on a bucking bull and attempting to stay mounted while the animal tries to buck off the rider.

To revive scoring, the rider must stay on top of the angry; bucking bowl for exactly 8 seconds! They can’t use both hands, just one–which makes it extra harder. Their hand is on a rope which is tied behind the bucking bull’s forelegs. No wonder their angry and bucking! [Wiki (gonna be link for more down)]

To not revive scoring, is if the rider touches the bull or themselves (the hand gripping the rope, obvi) and/or failing to reach the 8 second mark.

Also, depending on the bull riding organization and contest, up to 4 judges will judge the ride and then 4 (other or same) judges will judge the bull on their organizations and performances.

Wiki tells us, that the most for ‘organization’, the perfect score is 100 points. However, in general, the most pro riders score in the mid 70’s- high 80’s.

Paragraphs 1-4 above, are for Americans bull riding.

Wiki writes that some Americans call Bull Riding the “most dangerous 8 seconds in sports!”.

[This is all for this topic, but read the next post to figure out more about bull riding!]

The VIP tent.

Some or most of you know that VIP means, Very Important Person, so this is a Very Important Person Tent, Lol, cool right? No? Ok, lol.

I tried to look up the definition of VIP tent–it showed nothing.

So, my general (and probably/possibly wrong) definition:

VIP tent|| A tent where you can meet the bull riders (and possibly see the bulls way up close). Sometimes there is alcohol but not always, (there should be none at the one in fort hall).

That is probably a crappy definition so if you have anything better comment below.

Appearance by former pro bull rider, Wiley Peterson.

This may not be at EVERY bull riding mayhem, but the one in Fort Hall has him there.

As the topic title says, there is gonna be a appearance from him. Not sure if we will meet him at the VIP tent or out at the show?

I am going (more)!

I am going to the Bull Riding Mayhem in Fort Hall! I’m so excited.

My dad won 2 free tickets plus entrances to the VIP tent! We are going tomorrow, August 8th.

There is also a “bonus bucks” and a “free stay at the hotel from August 7-8th” but I’m sure we aren’t doing those. Tomorrow in the morning, my dad is going to go pick up the tickets.

I am super excited. Plus, I get to get away from my rude, annoying siblings. I’ll do an update on how awesome it was and such.

So called ‘pup’ fest. [RANT]

Hello! Benziler here and welcome back to Benziler’s Life Blog! We are back with another blog!

This is a rant–as said in the title. But before we do the ‘Heads Up Info’ I wanted to thank my new followers for following my blog. I hope you like this rant.

Heads up info|| There will be some swearing so watch out for that–you have been warned.

Topics being covered:
  1. Pup fest definition (possibly more)
  2. My first pup fest experience.
  3. The actual rant.

Pup Fest Definition (possibly more).

I tried to search ‘pup fest’ up on the internet but they didn’t give any good definitions. Luckily, my friend knows a very good definition.

So this is hers:

Pup Fest|| where you go to play and adopt puppies, eat food and, ride rides or bounce on bouncy house/things.

If you have a better definition comment it below and I’ll update and add yours! Thanks!

We had to bring a doggy toy to donate.

My first Pup Fest Experience.

Before I start–as the title says– this is my first pup fest experience. And this happened on August 2nd, and it’s currently August 4th–so it’s been a while.

My best friend messaged me and asked if I wanted to go to a Pup Fest with her before she leaves on vacation (her vacation is for 6 days). Of course I said yes, so we go out 5:30 pm.

We looked around, there was bouncy houses and other blow up bouncy things (like a Disney train, not anything dirty minded since there was little children!), and a little variety of food. But also, for sale tiny campers. There is stands/stations for auctions for money.

We searched for puppies–there was only 1! But it has already been adopted! Other people brought their full grown dogs not their puppies like the 7 month old puppy that I said was already adopted. Also, to top it off–someone brought a kitten, which they do not know if someone’s dog would kill it or try to play with it! It was a kitten size that can fit in your palm.

The actual rant.

If your gonna call it “Pup Fest” at least have more puppies there! Not just ONE puppy that was ALREADY Adopted.

In the advertisement it said absolutely nothing about bring your own dog. For MY town’s advertisement they said to NOT bring your do so that you DO NOT freak out the orphaned pups.

If your gonna advertise, do it right.

I was really really expecting more puppies, not that I wanted to get one more (since in my town when you hit 3 dogs, no matter the size, you HAVE to get a license and then let all your neighbors that you have 3 dogs) trust me I already have enough animals, but because well I love seeing animals (mostly kittens and puppies) even if I’m not gonna adopt them!

Oh, there was no more cages or anything that resembled other pups were there. Like, we have a TON more pups [and other animals] at our pet shelter [that are on deaths road or not deaths road that need adopting] than that ‘pup’ fest.

Your thoughts? Am I over reacting?

Suicide (definition and more)

Hello! Benziler here and welcome back to Benziler’s Life Blog! We are back with another blog!

Heads up info|| this may be triggering for some of you? Sorry, my bad.

Topics being covered:
  1. Suicide (definition and more)
  2. How many people die from it
  3. Suicide hotline

Suicide (definition and more).

The act or instance of taking one’s own life voluntarily and intentionally especially by a person of years of discretion and of sound of mind” that’s one of the millions of definitions for Suicide.

Suicide is a thing most people take lightly when they don’t care about someone. Someone can commit suicide in many ways, sadly. It is usually caused by depression, stress, such as form of financial difficulties, troubles with relationships or bullying. [Wikipedia]

Wikipedia tells us, “Mental disorders, including depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, personality disorders, anxiety disorders, and substance abuse—including alcoholism and the use of benzodiazepines—are risk factors“. They also say, that the people (which we’ll refer to as victims) have previously attempted suicide are a higher risk for future attempts (and success).

How wiki tells us some ways to prevent it. Which include:

  • Limited access to methods of suicide (fire arms, drugs, poisons, etc).
  • Treating mental disorders and substance misuse.
  • Proper media reporting of suicide
  • Improving economic conditions.

Wiki says, “although crisis hotlines are common there is little evidence to their effectiveness”. Which, I kinda don’t believe because tons of people that have opened up to me have told me that crisis hotlines helped them and their family tree a lot!

Yes, their prevention ideas/ways are a few ways there are also more. I have thought of a couple that I think fit for this topic, they include:

  • Being a friend to the person that is thinking of suicide
  • Report it to a trusted adult
  • Be there with the person and convince them not to do it and do anything in your power to stop them from doing it (trust me it worked for me 99% of the time).

There are common methods for suicide, which are:

  • Hanging
  • Poison
  • Firearms (said above).

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death worldwide.

How many people die from it.

In 1990, deaths caused by suicide was 712,000. That number increased in 2015, leaving with 828,000 global deaths. Wow!

The percentage of people that wiki tells us is: “Approximately 0.5% of people die by suicide“. They also say, that in a given year there is–roughly–12 per 100,000 people.

The rates of completed suicide is usually men rather than women–aww. They rang from 1.5 times as much in our developing world to 3.5 times [in our developing world]!

Suicide is generally common, as wiki says, “over the age of 70”. But, in certain countries is 15-30 years.

Europe, sadly, has the highest rates of suicide by religion in 2015.

For, non-fatal suicide attempts are 10-20 million every year.

However, in the western countries, the attempts are more common for young people and mostly for females.

Suicide hotline.

Rape (definition and more)

Hello! Benziler here and welcome back to Benziler’s Life Blog! We are back with another blog!

Heads up info||This may be a touchy topic for some viewers. Please read with caution (or skip past).

Topics being covered:
  1. Rape (definition and more)
  2. How many people are victims?
  3. Who are the perpetrators?
  4. national sexual assault (violence) hotline

Rape (definition and more).

Rape, one of the other lightly taken topics that most people blow off and consider “fake”. You may or may not believe it but rape is real, it is a real life; world wide situation this needs resolving and talking about. And, in fact, definitely not taken lightly or considered fake or that the victim is a liar when they (may or may not) are not a liar.

Yeah, it’s true, some people do fake about a rape situation but, that doesn’t mean we take it lightly. We take it as if it was real. For one, we don’t know if it’s real or not and we do not know someone’s life or their story. How many times do I have to say it: Rape should not be taken lightly.

Rainn, again, in the same article as the “sexual assault” article, tells us the definition and such about Rape.

Rape|| a form of sexual assault, but not all sexual assault is rape. The term rape is often used as a legal definition to specifically include sexual penetration without consent. For its Uniform Crime Reports, the FBI defines rape as “penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim.” To see how your state legally defines rape and other forms of sexual assault.

And, let me say this again, Rape doesn’t just consist of Men doing it to women. Women can do it to men. Men can do it to men. Women can do it to women. Men and women can do it to children. It goes both, all, ways.

The perpetrators use a strategy called “force” in which is not always referred to as psychical pressure but also using other ways.

These may be the other way they use force:

  • Emotional coercion.
  • Psychological force
  • Manipulation to coerce a victim into non-consensual sex.

Some perpetrators also use threats to force a victim to comply. For example, they threaten to hurt the victims friends, family or the victims other loved/close ones. They also use intimidating tactics to so say, persuade the victim.

How many people are victims?

As said in the “sexual assault” Blog, every 92 seconds someone is [sexually assaulted and] raped.

As said in another article by Rainn, they say, “On average, there are 321,500 victims (ages 12+) of Rape [and sexual assault] each year in the US.”

They tell us that younger people are, usually, at the highest risk to be a victim of sexual violence.

The majority of victims of, in this topic, rape are under 30:

12-17 years|| 15%.

18-34 years|| 54%.

35-64 years|| 28%.

65+ years|| 3%.

Wow! 18-34 year olds are 54% victims! Even tho 34 is over 30 that is still mind blowing!

Who are the perpetrators?

Rainn, once again, tells us on their “sexual assault” article tells us “who are the perpetrators”.

They write, “The majority of perpetrators are someone known to the victim“.

An approximate 8/10 sexual [assault] violence (in this case rape) are committed by someone know to the victim. Such as a partner sexual violence, or acquaintance rape, Rainn writes.

They give an definition for the term “date rape”:

Date rape|| sometimes used to refer to acquaintance rape. Perpetrators of acquaintance rape might be a date, but they could also be a classmate, a neighbor, a friend’s significant other, or any number of different roles. It’s important to remember that dating, instances of past intimacy, or other acts like kissing do not give someone consent for increased or continued sexual contact.

In other instances, the victim may not know the perp. at all. They may, for example, have been an online person that asked to meet up for a “made up reason” or just a random stranger off the streets or in a building–like a hotel, etc.

This type of rape is identified as stranger rape. Stranger rape can take many forms, which include (as Rainn says):

  • Blitz sexual assault||when a perpetrator quickly and brutally assaults the victim with no prior contact, usually at night in a public place
  • Contact sexual assault||when a perpetrator contacts the victim and tries to gain their trust by flirting, luring the victim to their car, or otherwise trying to coerce the victim into a situation where the sexual assault will occur
  • Home invasion sexual assault||when a stranger breaks into the victim’s home to commit the assault

The survivors of either stranger rape and acquaintance rape usually tend to blame themselves for behaving (or dressing) in a way that made the perp. encouraged–which is not true! The victim’s blaming process may result, from my knowledge, doubting themselves; believing they encourage it; hating themselves for not stopping it; etc.

It’s, 100% important to remember that the victim is not, and never is, to blame. If the victim confessed to someone that they knew would listen and/or that they trusted, please, do not blame them and remember they never asked for it and never is to blame. The perpetrator is to blame, and needs to be behind bars.

Nation Sexual assault (violence) Hotline.

If you, or anyone you know, is/has been a victim of any sexual violence. Have them, or you, call/chat this hotline.
