Manatee hangs out with paddle boarder in Florida

Posted in 2016, animals with tags , on July 25, 2016 by theboldcorsicanflame

2 Florida girls got a sweet summer surprise when they went out paddleboarding – and made a new friend.
Celine Chasteen couldn’t believe it when a manatee swam right up to her and put his flippers on her board.
At first Celine had thought the manatee was a rock in the distance as she paddled through the waters of Jupiter.

‘But then they started moving,’ she told The Dodo.
‘The next thing I know, there’s a manatee putting his flippers on my board.’
The manatee was happy to chill out with Celine and her friend, floating with the pair for a moment before he swam away.
‘It was so cool,’ Celine said. ‘I’ve never experienced anything like that before.’
‘I thought he was really cute. He was really nice. I hope he drops by again.’
Celine’s friend captured the adorable moment on video, but the girls were smart to avoid hugging the big guy.
The Florida Manatee Sanctuary Act prohibits molesting, harassing or disturbing manatees, a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail and a $500 fine.
Manatees are currently on the endangered species list and are protected by federal law.

The cell phone radiation-induced cancer time bomb is about to explode.

The University of Pittsburg Cancer Institute suggested a possible link between the use of cell phones and brain cancer . Included were warnings for children to not use cell phones unless it was an emergency.

IACR officially and scientifically classified cell phone electromagnetic waves, or radio frequencies (RF) as a “ Possible Human Carcinogen ,” for a brain cancer type called glioma. IARC also encouraged schools, parents and governments to consider “precautionary behavior.”

The dogs that protect little penguins

At low tide, and when sand builds up in the narrow channel, foxes can cross from the mainland barely getting their paws wet.

The problem first became apparent in the year 2000 when the sea’s natural current led to increased sand build-up.

Over time the fox population grew as it became clear they had an easy source of food.

The fairy penguins, as I’m going to call them, faced being wiped out on Middle Island – until a chicken farmer, by the made-for-cinema name of Swampy Marsh, came up with a plan. He suggested sending one of his Maremma dogs to protect the birds.

“In Australia those dogs are generally used for chicken protection or goats or sheep,” says Abbott.

RR245_discovery-loop-2

It all began with a small dot moving across a computer screen.

That dot has now turned out to be a new dwarf planet, temporarily dubbed “RR245.” It’s a chunk of rock and ice about two thirds the size of California (north to south) orbiting amidst other small, icy worlds in the nether reaches of the solar system beyond Neptune.

Its discovery was announced today
