The Attack Happened In Volusia County Near New Smyrna Beach, Florida, The Shark Capital Of The World

A MAN was hospitalized Monday in an apparent shark attack in Daytona Beach, Fla., marking the sixth attack of the year in the area, officials say.

The 33-year-old victim was wading in waist-deep water around 3pm when he was bitten in the right foot by a shark, according to Deputy Chief Tamra Malphurs.

The man’s injuries were not life-threatening and he has not been identified by authorities.

This is the sixth shark bite of the year for the Volusia County Beach Safety Ocean Rescue.

The beach is located near New Smyrna Beach, Florida, which has earned the title of Shark Capital of the World after a series of horrifying encounters with dangerous predators in recent years.

This year, however, bites could be below average, University of Florida Shark Research Program director Gavin Naylor told Fox 35.

“Someone gets bitten on the ankle by a shark and there may not be another bite in three weeks, or there may be one the next day,” he told the broadcaster.

There were 21 bites recorded in the county last year, and it averages ten a year.

According to the International Shark Attack File (ISAF), Volusia County has an annual average of nine unprovoked shark attacks per year.

Of the 73 unprovoked shark bites in the United States in 2021, 64 percent — or 47 bites — occurred near the U.S. shore.

Of Florida’s 28 unprovoked shark bites, 63 percent — or 17 bites — occurred in Volusia County.

The probability of being bitten in the United States is 1 in 4,332,817 according to the ISAF.

“You’re probably 200 times more likely to drown in the ocean than get bitten by a shark,” Naylor told NPR.

“And I think people don’t worry about drowning.”

Audusd Is Testing Its 100-Day Ma/Key Swing Zone. Will Sellers Bend Over?

AUDUSD tests its 100-day moving average

Looking at the daily chart, the price is rising to test its 100-day moving average currently down at 0.70895. The high price just reached 0.70866 just below this level. The price is currently trading at 0.7082.

Near this area is also a swing zone between 0.7068 and 0.7094. Moving above all of these levels would increase the bullish bias and prompt traders to look to the 200-day moving average at 0.71522 as the next key target on the daily chart.

On the downside, the pair also broke above the 38.2% retracement of the downward move from the April high to the July low today. This level sits at 0.70552 and represents nearby support on a downside. Move below and there might be some disappointment in the inability to crack above the upper targets and stay above the broken 38.2% retracement level.

10 Thoughts From Dolphin Camp – The depth chart is telling; Roquan Smith on the market; Patriots offense in trouble; Did Robert Kraft ask for a tampering penalty? – Denver Post

10 Thoughts From Dolphin Camp - The Depth Chart Is Telling; Roquan Smith On The Market; Patriots Offense In Trouble; Did Robert Kraft Ask For A Tampering Penalty? – Denver Post

Here are 10 observations from the first two weeks of Miami Dolphins training camp:

1. Linebackers were the most interesting unit of the first depth map of the Dolphins. Melvin Ingram is listed as an outside starter on Andrew Van Ginkel. It does not matter because both will play. The point here is that they like Ingram just as much, although the more important point is whether the August Ingram will be the same as the December and January Ingram. He is 33 years old and has a history of injuries. He’s had stoppages at two top-tier franchises, Pittsburgh and Kansas City, the past two seasons and hasn’t stuck. But if the Dolphins are closing in on the Chargers’ Melvin Ingram, they’ve found someone valuable. It could be one of those uncertain signings that become important in retrospect. We’re still in the message-sending part of an NFL, so we don’t know if the message from the Dolphins is that they love Ingram that much or want to push Van Ginkel. Maybe both?

2. Roquan Smith asks the Chicago Bears to trade him, and every team in the league will eject the tires of a deal for the 2018 No. 1 draft pick. He’s 25, a versatile linebacker and second-team All-Pro last year. These kind of players don’t come on the market very often. They are expensive too. The Dolphins face the ceiling next year, but that stuff can be turned into work. Compensation? This is where it gets complicated. The Dolphins sent a lot of picks for Tyreek Hill and lost a future first and third round to their tampering penalty. They could use a hard-hitting linebacker like this – who couldn’t? But gathering enough resources for a trade of this magnitude would be problematic.

3. A follow-up on the Dolphins penalty for recruiting Tom Brady at the time from New England and Sean Payton from New Orleans:

A. Did New England owner Robert Kraft push the NFL to penalize the Dolphins, as a league source suggests? It’s unclear how much of an influence his voice had on the proceedings, but you can understand Kraft’s anger upon realizing Dolphins-in-waiting owner Bruce Beale signed Brady in his senior year from the Patriots in 2019. Still, for a tampering of historic significance, according to the NFL commissioner, being penalized with a 2023 first-round pick and a 2024 third-round pick isn’t a staggering penalty. Why wasn’t it more? Maybe because every team falsifies. The league has had to deal with a flood of cases. Of course, no team has done it as brazenly as the Dolphins in this case. That’s the problem here – they don’t know how to populate or alter accepted parameters.

B. The league source also offered what he says is a ‘league-wide belief’: ‘The fact that Don Yee was Brady’s agent and Payton says he told their story on tampering provided they don’t suffer any penalty or even rebuke from the league. That’s the other half of this story. How do you handle if a contracted player argues with a team? Is it allowed? obviously it does.

4. One month after the 9/11 opening at Hard Rock Stadium, let’s take a look at what the New England offense looks like with Matt Patricia and Joe Judge in some undefined roles to lead it. Take this from longtime Patriots reporter Greg Bedard:

“Hands down the worst attacking start in camp,” he tweeted from Monday’s practice before listing the plays: “False start 77, Stuff Incomplete, Stuff at handoff, Sack Flat 1yd would have been blown if live, Incomplete, Sack on a waggle 1 yard pass blasted by Wilson, Stuff 5 yard flat for Meyers.

And ESPN’s Mike Reiss: “A thought after watching the Patriots offense look effective at 7-on-7 but notably struggle in several 11-on-11s: It might be time to give (legendary Patriots offensive line coach ) Dante Scarnecchia a call for an independent assessment.

Here’s the counter-read to this: The Patriots’ defense has to be great?

5. If the dolphins even get something substantial in a trade for Preston Williams, managing director Chris Grier is the first manager of the year. Is there really a market for a player who went undrafted, played in half the games in three years due to injury, and had a catch for seven yards in 2021? The Dolphins made him compete for a job for the first time since his rookie training camp. The results speak. So, yeah, listing him as a second team is either to bolster his (cough) business value or…

6. It’s a statement of how thin this Dolphins receiving body is. Remember when general manager Jeff Ireland said on HBO Hard Knocks that he had “four, five and six” in his receiving squad but needed to find “ones, twos and threes?” This is the reverse problem. Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle are the No. 1 receivers. Cedric Wilson is No. 3, and it looks like rookie Eric Ezukanma is No. 4 in training camp. Undrafted rookie Braylon Sanders looks like a player you want to develop into the practice squad. But then? What about Lynn Bowden Jr., River Cracraft and Trent Sherfield? A team usually has a wide receiver on special teams and that could be Cracraft. Let’s also remember that there haven’t been any hits on the receivers yet, so this is a position that may be overemphasized in summer practices.

7. High-end talent and good camp work of this list is obvious and commendable. The depth of this roster is the concern – just as it is with many teams now. The healthiest team often wins. It’s not just the offensive line and receivers where the Dolphins need to look for help. Look at the cornerback. Xavien Howard and Byron Jones are as good a unit as any team. Nik Needham is a solid third cornerback. But after that? Noah Igbinoghene is listed as the fourth cornerback and he was unable to enter the field his first two years. Has he progressed so much? Maybe. The saying in football is that you can never have enough attacking tackles and cornerbacks. The Dolphins need to be on the hunt for cornerbacks, just like many teams are.

8. The three players the Dolphins can’t lose this season: Hill, cornerback Xavien Howard and left tackle Terron Armstead. Hill is the most dynamic player on the team, maybe in the league. Howard is not only a game-changer, but frees up the defense to do a lot of things. Armstead is the anchor on an offensive line. It’s not just their talent, however. Again, it’s depth. Look at the line. There are three questionable players in new positions: center Connor Williams, right tackle Austin Jackson and left guard Liam Eichenberg. Armstead is the sure thing.

9. That said, remember when the Dolphins were constantly juggling players across the offensive line last training camp? Eichenberg started at right tackle, moved to guard, then had time at left tackle. His head must have been spinning. This coaching staff made decisions about where to place players and let players sink or swim in those positions all summer. We’ll see how it goes in combined training with Tampa Bay and preseason. But keeping players in a primary position gives them the best chance of succeeding.

10. Notes:

A. Speaking of the Patriots camp, DeVante Parker is listed as a second-team receiver. That can’t be why they traded him, but Parker was among the worst receivers to be let go in the past three years. His only big year came when Ryan Fitzpatrick threw jump balls at him. He can get them. The question is do you want a one-turn receiver like this.

B. Which team will sign former Cleveland center JC Tretter?

C. Tackle Mekhi Becton suffering from a knee injury that knocked him out last season is just about the worst news the New York Jets could have in August.

D. The fun part of summer is that young players take developmental steps. That’s why hope and optimism are blooming in almost every team right now. Mike McDaniel has done a great job of changing the feeling around this team to one of hope and optimism. But with the combined training in Tampa and the preseason, we’ll start to get a better sense of the milestones some players have gone through.
