From below, the silhouette of a surfboard with a couple of legs dangling off the back could hardly be a better lure for a shark. But a recent spate of attacks off the Pacific coast of Mexico has biologists scratching their heads. Is it shark hunger? La Nina weather effect bringing ocean suce temperatures down, and sharks in to shore? Whats certain is replica watch gift that shark attacks are on the rise.Biologists will now start tagging sharks in the region, and soliciting help from local fisherman, to try to fill gaps in research, and help stem the panic in the resort area.American surfer Bruce Grimes, who survived the most recent attack but took 100 stitches, recounted his ordeal on Fox last week.--Matthew Fishbane
Over 3,000 amateur scientists, led by 120 actual scientists, spent the weekend trolling L.A.’s backcountry, feverishly counting creatures, according to the LA Times. The survey is the second in a 10-hunt annual series leading up to the National Park Service’s 100th birthday in 2016. The 24-hour community event began on Friday at noon. The California counters tracked 1,500 species—mostly rats and mice—weighed them, and replica Longines watch sent them on their way. Participants also counted birds, fish, and a healthy rattler. BioBlitz, as it’s called, is intended to give participants, many of them schoolchildren, a rare opportunity to appreciate the wildlife in their own cities. Organizers tout the fun to be had while tallying, explaining that while the wannabe biologists aren’t exactly encountering “charismatic megafauna” (scientist speak for big, cool animals like pandas and condors) there’s something to be said for tracking pocket mouse droppings and spotting a woodrat. -Claire Napier Galofaro
There is almost no midsole. Your feet areseparated from the ground by a lowprofile treaded sole and a thin forefootplate. Replica Ulysse Nardin watches The MT100s have a fast, barebones design that keeps youon your midfoot and forefoot for maximum speed. Elite runners might crank along run off in a shoe like the MT100. Some could run an ultra. Average trail runners should consider a 10K in them, butnothing more. As the company cites, the MT100s are a running flat madefor racing, not training.
