Great white shark numbers
surging off East Coast

Associated Press, by Patrick Whittle

Posted By:Hazymac, 6/20/2014 6:55:02 PM

PORTLAND, Maine — A report that scientists are calling one of the most comprehensive studies of great white sharks finds that their numbers are surging in the ocean off the Eastern U.S. and Canada after decades of decline — bad news if you´re a seal, but something experts say shouldn´t instill fear in beachgoers this summer. The study by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, published this month in the journal PLOS ONE, says the population of the notoriously elusive fish has climbed since about 2000 in the western North Atlantic. The scientists behind the study attribute the resurgence to

Comments:
Great white sharks can be found in all the world´s oceans, and are part of a healthy littoral ecosystem. Nowadays fishermen return to the sea what they don´t intend to harvest for food, as it should be. A few years ago nine miles off my coast a sixteen foot, 2,600 pounder was accidentally netted by a shrimp boat. I think the captain said, "The taxidermist is gonna have a heart attack when he sees what I brung him!"

These are the sharks with the fins. Right?

“I want you to drain them of their morale,” the robed man said. (Snip) Having proved to all that “nothing is worth dying for” it is all too easy to add “including anything Obama tells you to die for”. By converting the US Ship of State into a clown car Obama made himself a clown. And that is how Obama is being treated. He’s excluded from talks between Putin, Merkel and Hollande over the latest crisis in Ukraine though doubtless he’s being kept informed on the golf course. Obama is out of the loop as Leader of the Free World

TALLAHASSEE — Since leaving the governor’s mansion in 2010, Democrat Charlie Crist has more than doubled his net worth, with much of the money coming from prestigious positions and consulting contracts he received from large political donors. Some were helping Crist build his net worth while knowing that the Republican-turned-independent-turned-Democrat likely would run again for governor. In 2010, Crist listed his net worth at $466,063, a number that has jumped to $1.2 million, according to financial disclosure forms he filed Tuesday when submitting his official paperwork to get on the ballot as a candidate for governor. Crist said it

A missing Valrico teen has been located in Louisiana, in critical condition with multiple stab wounds, and the registered sex offender from Georgia she was with is in custody this morning after a 40-mile high-speed chase with law enforcment. Ashley Lyon, 16, was found after someone at a Grosse Tete, La., truck stop recognized her and Steven Myers, 41, from national media coverage about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday and called authorities, officials said.

NBC’s Chuck Todd looks at the president’s polling and concludes it is disastrous for Obama, though not necessarily for for the Democratic Party. It is one of a series of messages disassociating the fortunes of the liberal enterprise from the collapsing presidency. The new point of departure is cooperating with Iran. (Snip) As noted in a previous post, while there may not be enough votes in a Democratic Senate to threaten the president with an impeachment conviction now — that can change in two months. For where there’s a storm in politics, there’s a Jonah. Everybody needs a Fall Guy.

Florida execution is nation´s

In the third execution nationwide in less than 24 hours, a three-time Florida murderer was put to death by lethal injection Wednesday night. The execution of John Ruthell Henry was the state´s 13th since April 2013 and the 18th since Gov. Rick Scott took office in 2011. The trio of executions Tuesday and Wednesday were the first since the botched lethal injection of an Oklahoma killer in April. Henry, 63, was pronounced dead at 7:43 p.m. after being injected with three drugs at the Florida State Prison in Starke. He was convicted in the 1985 stabbing deaths of Suzanne Henry

Petition seeks return of

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- An environmental group wants federal wildlife managers to revise a decades-old recovery plan for grizzly bears to ensure the animal´s return to more areas of the West. The Center for Biological Diversity filed its petition Wednesday with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. It identifies more than 171 square miles in a handful of western states as suitable habitat for the bears. Those areas include a forested region straddling the Arizona-New Mexico border, the Grand Canyon, the Sierra Nevada in California and parts of Utah and Colorado. The recovery plan for grizzlies dates back to 1993. The

A federal appeals court has rejected a bid to delay the execution of John Ruthell Henry, who is scheduled to be executed at 6 tonight at the Florida State Prison in Raiford. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit in Atlanta issued an opinion late Tuesday, said capital cases clerk Jan Camp. Only the U.S. Supreme Court could now delay Henry´s execution, Camp added. Henry was sentenced to death for murdering his wife in Zephyrhills in 1985. Defense attorney Baya Harrison, who filed the appeal over the weekend, has argued that Henry, 63, is mentally disabled and should

Clearwater woman cries foul on chicken ban

CLEARWATER — Behind closed doors, there’s a small population illegally dwelling within the city. These residents are well-mannered, relatively clean and, aside from possibly causing a small drop in supermarket egg sales, wouldn’t be much of an economic burden if there were more of them. At least, that’s what a growing number of residents who want the city to legalize backyard chickens are saying. Spearheading the movement is lifelong resident Erin Bennett, 31. She has been trying to persuade the Clearwater City Council to take up the issue since January. Last month, the council decided not to discuss the matter.

Dick and Liz Cheney in a WSJ article point out that president Barack Obama is in the unique position of fighting himself. What is worse, his evil twin has launched a surprise attack on his other half. (Snip) President Obama is now paying the ultimate price for having no strategic goals; no global context. His sophisticated foreign policy world consisted of disconnected contexts in which contextualized deals could be made. He’d deal, deal and deal. Nuance. Smart diplomacy. The localization of scope meant the same actors could assume the value of “friend” in one context and yet be foe in

Daily Caller tells us it´s the first bill of its kind in the nation; giving adults here illegally the opportunity to vote in state and local elections. The legislation is being introduced by state Sen. Guestavo Rivera and is designed to "integrate illegal immigrants, who are estranged from participation in civic, economic and political life." What could go wrong? (Snip) Fortunately, this idea just isn´t practicable. By making an illegal alien a de facto citizen of a state, the federal Constitution says that makes the illegal a citizen of the US. The Constitution does not recognize different levels of citizenship

Wikipedia has an article describing the six times Republican politicians suggested impeaching Barack Obama, the most serious of which was a hearing by the House Judiciary Committee “formally titled ‘The President’s Constitutional Duty to Faithfully Execute the Laws,’ that has been viewed as an attempt to begin justifying impeachment proceedings”. (Snip) The problem with the “Obama is unimpeachable” argument is that he has already been impeached as Leader of the Free World. Any observer of Obama’s collapse will have noted his marginalization in international councils. Britain flatly refused to go along with him in enforcing a Red Line in Syria.

It has become a daily frightening occurrence, hearing politicians, commentators, pundits, and stunned Americans say, “That´s outrageous!” “He can´t do that!” “No way!” “It´s against federal law!” “They have no legal authority to force us to do that!” These comments are in response to the daily unprecedented out-of-control tyranny handed down by Obama and his operatives. We are talking arrogance with a capital A coming out of the Obama administration. For example: the GOP was moving too slow in caving to Obama´s amnesty scheme, so Obama said, Heck with it, I´ll bypass everyone and make it happen. Obama sent a

WASHINGTON -- The commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service refused to apologize to Congress for losing e-mails related to its targeting of conservative groups, saying it´s still attempting to recover the data and it´s too soon to know how many e-mails are missing. "I don´t think an apology is owed," Commissioner John Koskinen told the House Ways and Means Committee. "Every e-mail has been preserved that we have." In his most contentious hearing since becoming commissioner six months ago, Koskinen testified about efforts the IRS has made to recover e-mails that were lost when Lois Lerner´s computer hard drive crashed

At a time when debate is swirling over the assertion that 97 percent of scientists endorse man-made global warming, Secretary of State John Kerry – a frequent citer of the 97 percent figure – in a speech Wednesday nudged the figure up to “at least 98, 99 percent.” “When it comes to climate change, when it comes to food security, we are literally facing a moment of adversity – perhaps even dire necessity,” Kerry said at a State Department food security award ceremony. “It’s hard to convince people – hard to convince people of a challenge that isn’t immediately tangible

According to the Daily Beast, O´Reilly told the audience, “I’m not Rush Limbaugh or Al Franken, where everything has to fit into my worldview… I’m a fact-based guy. A lot of people don’t understand that.” O´Reilly made his remarks about being a "fact-based guy" days after he tried to convince his viewers that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) did not lose his primary race last week to Dave Brat because of the amnesty issue.

Hillary Clinton — the woman assumed to be the next Democratic Party presidential nominee and quite possibly the next president — is evidently a big snooze. According to Mediate, her interviews to promote her book on CNN and Fox had underwhelming numbers. In the case of Greta Van Susteren’s show, she sent people fleeing midway. More importantly, her book itself is a sales disappointment and, I would wager, even more disappointing if you could ascertain how many who did buy it read actually past page 15. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was in single digits. No, I haven’t read it

President Obama´s approval rating has dropped to 41 percent, a majority of Americans disapprove of his handling of foreign policy issues, he has lost support from the Hispanic community and Americans actually think his administration is less competent than the Bush White House post-Hurricane Katrina, according to a new survey from the Wall Street Journal and NBC News. In short, the poll is nothing but bad news for the president. The survey would appear to be so bad, in fact, that NBC News´ Chuck Todd said Tuesday that the poll basically means the public has declared the Obama presidency to be

President Obama told his Mexican counterpart in a phone call Thursday that immigrants crossing into the U.S. illegally won’t qualify for legalized status or deferred deportation, including children. The White House said Mr. Obama and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto discussed “a regional strategy” to address the surge of unaccompanied children coming from Central America, through Mexico, to the U.S. With thousands of children trying to enter the U.S. illegally in recent months, Vice President Joseph R.

Former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer apparently doesn’t think Southern men are manly. Following Virginia Rep.

The U.S. is leading by example in promoting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) rights at home and around the world, Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday. He said the federal government recognizes same-sex marriages of foreign diplomats stationed in the U.S., and it expects all other countries to do the same in their treatment of U.S. personnel deployed abroad. “Let me be clear: We oppose any effort by any country to deny visas for spouses of American staff,” he said. “It’s discriminatory, it’s unacceptable, it has no place in the 21st century.”
