A Marine Expert Has Shared How Swimmers Can Avoid Likely Shark Attacks

WHILE the US continues to see a spike in shark attacks and sightings this summer, a marine expert has shared how swimmers can avoid the likelihood of an attack.

Beaches in Long Island, New York and Florida have seen at least 12 separate shark attacks this year, six in each state.

And near-daily shark sightings have forced park officials to halt swimming for several hours and monitor the water closely for predators.

The latest attack came Monday after a 33-year-old man was taken to the hospital in Daytona Beach after being bitten in the right foot by a shark, police officers said.

Now experts have offered tips on how swimmers can avoid likely shark attacks by simply avoiding the water at a certain time of the day.

The marine ecologist Dr. Neil Hammerschlag told The Independent that people should avoid swimming at times when a shark might mistake them for prey, such as at night or in murky waters.

“It can be difficult for a shark to tell the difference between your hand and a fish,” Hammerschlag said.

Hammerschlag also emphasized that swimmers should avoid areas with a lot of fish, for example where people fish.

“A fish caught on a fishing line and bleeding and struggling is like a meal to the shark. Many sharks seek out places where people fish in hopes of catching an easy meal,” he warned.

The director of the Shark Research & Conservation Program also warned that people should not jump into waters where an estuary flows into the ocean.

Rivers can dump nutrients and sand into the ocean and give swimmers poor visibility, Hammerschlag said.

The marine ecologist also advised people to remove their jewelry before riding waves, as the luster can catch light and attract sharks due to the resemblance to a fish scale.


Meanwhile, OCEARCH founder Chris Fischer told The US Sun that as the ocean is alive and kicking as it hasn’t been since the 1950s, beachgoers need to change their swimming habits to avoid shark bites.

“Now we have to develop further. We must change. We have to understand that it’s not the same ocean as it was in the ’80s, ’90s and early 2000s where it was mostly dead,” Fischer said.

“We killed all the seals. We sucked up the whole Menhaden for pet food. We all caught strippers, redfish and cod and other things with nets because at the time we thought the ocean was so big that we couldn’t affect it by harvesting it.

“You could just walk in anywhere and nothing happened because we wiped everything out. What is happening now as humans is that somehow we have to change, and we have to change our behavior.”

Because of this, more than half a dozen sharks have been sighted or bitten off the Long Island coast, which was unknown before the pandemic.

“We’re in the midst of a slow, steady recovery in these populations, so it’s just something you’re going to see every now and then,” Fischer said, “because there are more sharks and people in the water and there are bad interactions.”

“It’s not a mystery. This is not a radical climate change situation. The ocean returns to what it should be. It’s just that none of us lived long enough to see that.”

Truck theft affects San Jose man’s family, business and volunteer efforts to help homeless

Truck Theft Affects San Jose Man'S Family, Business And Volunteer Efforts To Help Homeless

SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) — A San Jose resident father and local food pantry volunteer had his truck stolen outside his home recently.

Anthony Moore described his frustration to ABC7 News over the senseless theft of his green Chevy Silverado.

“It’s the second time they’ve stolen it in six months,” Moore explained. “I’m in trouble. I don’t have insurance, so if they burn or whatever, it’s done.”

More than transportation, he relies on the truck for his catering business, uses it to take his daughter to school, and in his spare time Moore donates his vehicle to help those in need.

Pastor Ralph Olmos of Lighthouse Food Rescue and Distribution in the city’s Northside neighborhood described, “We try to find all the resources we can to try to get the job done, and often those are our own cars.

Moore used his truck to help transport food for the nonprofit and even towed equipment used in larger efforts to feed the ever-growing homeless population.

As demand for homeless help has skyrocketed during the pandemic, Pastor Olmos said the theft of Moore’s truck could impact business.

“It hurts us because it affects the flow of food here,” Pastor Olmos said. “When a car is missing, a load is not picked up. It affects how this place works because we are a bit different than most distros, being a free farmer’s market.”

On Tuesday, we found Moore working on the front door of the lighthouse. He lives within walking distance.

“The gate is kind of a critical position because that’s where you actually meet us,” Pastor Olmos told ABC7 News. “You can actually interact with us and I think Anthony’s place here kind of grew in the neighborhood. He’s had a really powerful effect on the people here because everybody knows everybody. world here in the Northside.”

A few days earlier, surveillance cameras had captured what appeared to be a white SUV driving through the area. Moore and other residents believe it’s related to the Friday morning robbery.

Moore said additional footage showed the SUV pulling up near his truck around 1:15 a.m.

He said two minutes later, “You see my brake lights come back on, then you see them go off.”

Moore said he filed a police report.

He said he was able to get his truck back months ago, after seeing it driving through town.

Now, the man who dedicates his time to his children and his community needs extra help himself, just to make ends meet.

“I don’t know what it is with these trucks, but it has to stop,” he said. “I can’t take it. I mean, I’m on point right now – I probably don’t have enough to pay my rent because that’s what I use to do the restoration.”

Pastor Olmos added: “Taking his truck, it doesn’t make sense. Because this guy, he’s a father, he takes his children to school, and he comes here right after and picks up loads. So , it doesn’t really make sense to hurt a person like that.”

Moore said his green Chevy Silverado 4×4 had black rims. He described it as an old Fish and Game truck with holes in the roof where the antennas were.

The first time the truck was taken, it lost catering equipment, awnings and fillet knives, which totaled a loss of items worth $400-500.

When he retrieved the truck, he added a club for safety.

This time around the truck stored a barbecue flag, steaks and earflaps.

If the truck is returned, he plans to have an alarm and a circuit breaker installed.

Moore shared a link to an online campaign to help cut costs. Go here to help you.

The case against Notre Dame football betting in 2022

The Case Against Notre Dame Football Betting In 2022

College Football Betting Overview Schedule

Thursday: Betting on Alabama
Friday: Ohio State Betting
Saturday: Paris Georgia
Monday: Paris Clemson
Tuesday: LSU Betting

Bet: Notre Dame Under 9 wins (-105)

Best case: The Irish have a ton of positivity coming into this 2022 campaign after just missing out on the college football playoffs (they finished fifth in the standings) last season. They’re returning 15 starters, and the players are loving new head coach Marcus Freeman, who previously served as defensive coordinator under Brian Kelly. Freeman’s first game as head coach came at the Fiesta Bowl, where the Golden Domers took a 28-7 lead before falling to Oklahoma State. Now that he has a full offseason, Freeman should be fine with a program that faces only a few really tough games: at Ohio State and USC and at home against Clemson.

Worst case: Kelly may have acted like a clown with the mic and his fake southern accent, but the guy doesn’t mess with the headphones. He has won 40 of his last 41 games when Notre Dame has been favored. Sure, he may not have covered the point spread, but when he had the better team, the Irish won outright. It’s the sign of a very good coach, while the verdict has always fallen on the 36-year-old Freeman. Will Freeman make sure the Irish run their business against mediocre opponents like Cal, BYU, Stanford and Boston College? He needs it because he will be outdone by elite coaches and players at Ohio State, Clemson and USC.

Betting round: The Irish have won double digits for five consecutive years, and now we need them to hit the maximum eight to cash in on that bet? I’m taking a small leap here, but losing a top coach like Kelly should have a significant impact. He won at every stage throughout his three-decade head coaching career. I just can’t ignore this sustained success with a rookie now taking the reins. It takes more than 10 wins to lose this bet, so I like my chances of pushing or cashing in.

Adam Kinzinger warns that some Christians are now ‘equating Donald Trump with the person of Jesus Christ,’ calls on pastors who support Trumpism

Adam Kinzinger Warns That Some Christians Are Now 'Equating Donald Trump With The Person Of Jesus Christ,' Calls On Pastors Who Support Trumpism

  • Rep. Adam Kinzinger said some Christians in the United States equate Donald Trump with Jesus Christ.

  • In an interview with MSNBC, he also criticized pastors who spread Trumpism from the pulpit.

  • The GOP congressman also warned of political tribalism that has blurred voters’ moral boundaries.

GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois said on Tuesday that some Christian circles in the United States equate former President Donald Trump with Jesus Christ, warning of “tribalistic” behavior that has led voters to “accept anything” to stay within their communities.

During an interview with MSNBC’s Alex Wagner, Kinzinger said many pastors in America have “disappointed their congregation” either by preaching Trumpism “from the pulpit” or refusing to talk about the “corrosion” of the ideology.

“And you have people today who, literally, I think in their hearts – they may not say it – but they equate Donald Trump with the person of Jesus Christ,” added Kinzinger, who identifies himself. as a Christian. “And for them, if you’re speaking out against even this ‘amazing man Donald Trump,’ who obviously is pretty flawed, you’re speaking out against Jesus, against their Christian values.”

Kinzinger, one of two House Select Committee Republicans investigating the Capitol riot, was one of the most vocal lawmakers against Trump and voted to impeach the former president in 2021.

The Illinois congressman has, in turn, been censured by the Republican National Committee and often draws heat from Trump supporters inside and outside Congress.

In February, Kinzinger received a letter from 11 of his own family calling him a “disappointment” for advocating for Trump’s impeachment.

“We were once so proud of your accomplishments. Instead, you are going against your Christian principles and joining the devil’s army (the Democrats and the fake media),” the letter read.

Commenting on the letter on Tuesday, Kinzinger said Americans have become so “tribalistic” that they fear being ostracized from their communities “more than they fear death.”

“And so you accept anything because now republicanism or conservatism or Trumpism becomes your identity,” he said.

“I got kicked out of my tribe, and that’s fine,” he told Wagner.

Jameson Reeder, 10, had his leg amputated after a shark bite

Jameson Reeder, 10, Had His Leg Amputated After A Shark Bite

Jameson Reeder Jr. was attacked by a shark while snorkeling on vacation in the Florida Keys.

A 10-year-old boy had part of his leg amputated after being bitten by a shark while snorkeling on vacation in the Florida Keys, his family said.

Jameson Reeder Jr. was attacked Saturday at Looe Key Reef, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said in a statement.

A Facebook post by his uncle Joshua Reeder said Jameson had gone boating with his parents and three other siblings and was snorkeling in a shallow reef when he “took a crushing blow below his knee “, by what they believed to be an eight-foot-long bull shark.

Jameson was able to hold on to a noodle float and was rescued by his father, who applied a tourniquet to his leg and signaled another faster boat which brought the family back to shore.

The boy was then airlifted to Miami Children’s Hospital where a medical team saved his life but was forced to amputate his leg below the knee.

“He is now out of surgery and resting,” wrote Joshua Reeder, acknowledging Jameson’s strong religious faith for helping him survive the ordeal.

A family’s GiveSendGo appeal for financial assistance had surpassed its goal of $50,000 by Tuesday afternoon.

While a higher than normal number of shark encounters off New York City this summer has drawn attention, the overall risk of being bitten by a shark remains low.

Global trends are now roughly stable after increasing slightly over the past 30 years, in part due to increased human recreational activities and the recovery of vulnerable shark populations.

Last year, there were 73 unprovoked attacks worldwide, according to the Florida Museum. Almost all attacks are the result of mistaken identity, as sharks do not intentionally target humans.

Most attacks in the United States occur off the Atlantic coast of Florida, which is home to choppy waters and baitfish that several species of sharks feed on.

Kevin Mckidd Defends Ellen Pompeo For Cutting Grey'S Role

Grey’s Anatomy was among many hit shows honored at the awards show, including It’s us, which concluded its six-season run in May. And while the star mandy moore– who starred as matriarch Rebecca Pearson – was honored with an acting nomination and this year’s Virtuoso Award at the ceremony, fans were shocked when she was snubbed a nomination for best actress for the 2022 Emmys.

Her co-star and on-screen son Justin Hartley– who played Kevin Pearson – praised Moore for his talent on and off camera, telling pop of the day on the red carpet, “I think he’s a rare talent and I think he’s a rare person.”

“I’m going to tell you something,” he added, “if you call Mandy Moore and ask her for advice, she’ll either give you advice, or if she doesn’t know anything about what you’re asking, she’ll find someone who does and connects you with them and makes your life better. She’s like a therapist, an actress, a mother – what can’t she do? She’s amazing.

Hageman'S Post-Primary Victory: Wyoming Voters Sent A Very Strong Message Tonight

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Trump-endorsed Wyoming congressional primary winner Harriet Hageman celebrated her victory over Jan. 6 vice president Rep. Liz Cheney Tuesday on “The Ingraham Angle.”

HARRIET HAGEMAN: I didn’t even get to see or hear what she had to say because I was pretty focused on what’s going on here. It doesn’t surprise me that she’s going back to those same old talking points, because that’s really a big part of what won her over. She is don’t focus on Wyoming, it does not focus on our problems. She still focuses on an obsession with President Trump and the citizens of Wyoming, Wyoming voters, sent a very strong message tonight. We talked.


And that’s not what we’re interested in, in terms of our only representative in Congress. Wyoming has the right to have a representative who represents our interests, listening to us, who answers our problems. It’s not Liz Cheney and the fact that she came back with her speech tonight I think shows that she really isn’t listening to Wyoming anymore, she not for some time, and that’s why we had to replace it. We need a representative in Wyoming who listens to us.
