A pair of Bluntnose Sixgill sharks appeared dead and mutilated in Marsalforn Bay in Gozo yesterday morning.

Photos were submitted to Lovin Malta by a dismayed diver who spotted the two sharks yesterday morning and at first thought he was looking at two turtles in distress.

“I first saw the sharks floating in Marsalforn Bay yesterday around 11am. At first I was worried it might be two turtles in distress. It was difficult to identify them for sure from the shore,” a- he told Lovin Malta.

He then called for help from the Nature Trust Wildlife Rescue, “and it turned out to be two sharks”. He called the incident “very sad”.

Apparently the bodies of the sharks were also cut off and only the head and some organs remain.

The man who originally spotted the floating sharks is also a diver himself, and he expressed his sadness and disappointment at the incident and his appreciation for the sharks.

“I had the privilege of diving with sharks abroad. It was one of my most memorable diving experiences. They are magnificent creatures and not a species that deserves such negativity. They are very important for the health of our seas,” the diver said.

“I’ve only seen two very small catsharks around Gozo in 16 years of diving here. And I still hope to see more. So I was very sad to see the sharks being discarded like that,” the diver told the press room.

The man who reported the incident also contacted Sharklab-Malta, from where he got more information about the breed of sharks.

“They are a very deep water species and only occasionally come into shallow water. They’re caught as bycatch and they’re not good to eat, so they’re often thrown away like that,” he said.

And unfortunately, this breed of sharks is not protected in Maltese waters.

Lovin Malta also spoke with marine biologist Alan Deidun, to help understand the situation and what else it could have caused.

“These sharks were quartered as they could have been for sale. Sharks, unfortunately, are regularly sold in the market or are regularly discarded due to their frequent bycatch,” he explained.

“It is indeed a shame given their slow reproduction and the endangered status of many species populations – the species featured here is potentially a six-gilled shark, also known as the cow shark, which we know very little,” he said. concluded.

This is not the first time that this breed of shark has been found dead in Malta; of the 35 species of Malta sharks currently and historically documented in Maltese waters, only a small percentage of them are protected by Maltese or European legislation.

The total number is 13 out of 35 species. The Sixgill Bluntnose shark (Hexanchus griseus) is unprotected in Maltese waters and has been a landed species in Malta and Gozo for many years. The Maltese name for this species is Murruna ta’sitt gargi.

STANFORD, Calif. – The nation’s fastest 200 IMer in Leon Marchand certainly played the role Friday afternoon at Stanford, as the highly decorated Sun Devils rookie picked up victories in the 200 IM and 200 backstroke despite the fall of the men’s and feminine in front of the Cardinal.

The Cardinal went after it early and often, forcing the Sun Devils to play catch-up all afternoon, as the No. 6 men’s team (0-2) beat the No. 11 Cardinal 184-93 ; the women’s team (2-2) edged, 160-90, the No. 4 Cardinal.

HOW DID IT HAPPEN
The Cardinal took victories in the first four races of the afternoon, before Erica Laning and Grant House earned back-to-back Sun Devil victories in the women’s and men’s 200 freestyles.

The Cardinal went on to win five straight runs, and seven of eight, to rack up a handful of points too heavy for the Sun Devils to bear.

START OF DIVERS
A pair of Sun Devil divers made their debut against the Cardinal, becoming the top two in the Mark Briggs time. It’s the first time the Sun Devils have participated in the diving portion of the competition since the spring of 2020.

In the men’s 1 meter dive, Zachory Lundgren, a transfer from the University of Hawaii, scored 297.23 and Thomas Weche, a Grand Canyon transfer, totaled 294.75.

On the 3-metre dive, Lundgren scored 334.80 and Wesche 314.10. In both events, the two Sun Devils placed fourth and fifth respectively.

HIGHLIGHTING INDIVIDUAL PERFORMANCE
With Marchand, the Sun Devils put on a handful of impressive individual performances. Jade Foelske was second in the 100 and 200 butterfly at 54.66 and 1:58.71, respectively.

Erica Laning won the women’s 200 freestyle, hitting the wall at 1:47.58 and passing Stanford’s 2020 Olympic silver medalist Brooke Forde, who finished at 1:47.71.

Grant House tallied wins in the 200m freestyle (1:34.63) and 400m freestyle relay (2:53.84), joined alongside Carter Swift, Evan Carlson and Jack Dolan. With a pair of wins today, House and Marchand have now won multiple events in each of the first three meetings of the season.

Alex Colson won the 200m butterfly (1:46.76), marking his second win of the season and the first time in his college career that he has won the event.

Erin Milligan added second places in the 100 freestyle (51.55), already the fourth time she has reached the podium in an individual race in her first season.

At Ethan Luc’s A 20.24 effort in the 50 free earned him a second-place finish, the San Jose native’s first time on the podium this season.

FOLLOWING
It’s a quick turnaround for the Sun Devils, who will hit the road to visit the No. 2/7 Cal Golden Bears tomorrow afternoon, with competition scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. MST.

Meta is working on plans to allow users to create and sell non-fungible tokens as Facebook’s parent company seeks to join the rush of companies trying to capitalize on the digital collectibles craze.

Facebook and Instagram teams are preparing a feature that will allow users to post their NFTs on their social media profiles, as well as working on a prototype to help users create – or craft – the collectible tokens, according to several people familiar with the subject. .

Two of the people said that Meta had also considered launching a marketplace allowing users to buy and sell NFTs – essentially a digital asset representing art or images that cannot be reproduced.

All of these efforts are still in their infancy and could still change. But the talks mark Meta’s first efforts to cash in on the hype-fueled world of NFTs, which surged in popularity last year to become a $40 billion global market. Critics portrayed the freewheeling sector as a speculative bubble plagued by scams and market manipulation.

Dominant NFT market OpenSea, which takes a 2.5% cut on any sale, this month raised $300m at a valuation of $13bn – just six months after raising $100m at a $1.5 billion valuation. Leading US cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase is launching its own marketplace. Meta rival Twitter tests NFT highlight the capabilitieswhile Reddit has launches its own collection of NFT avatars.

The move comes after Meta chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said last year that NFTs could one day be used to support a market for digital assets in its planned metaverse, a world filled with avatars that the company is investing $10 billion a year to build over the next decade.

The company, which has recently been dogged by moderation and privacy scandals, has seen popularity plummet for its main social media products such as Facebook and Instagram, in a trend that threatens its 85% ad-based business model. billions of dollars a year. .

Meta’s plans will also help artists monetize their digital art at a time when money has been flowing especially into the sales of expensive limited collections of NFTs, such as CryptoPunks and Bored Ape Yacht Club. Buyers of these exclusive collections typically post their pieces as Twitter profile photos, to signal their stature online.

Instagram manager Adam Mosseri said in December that he was “actively exploring NFTs,” without sharing specific details. But Instagram is now testing its NFT showcase feature internally, said two people with knowledge of the rapidly developing plans.

The Instagram NFTs project was originally spearheaded last year by Kristin George, Instagram’s director of product and creators, and David Marcus, the former head of payments and crypto arm of Facebook who left the company in December, another person said. Marcus has now been replaced by Stéphane Kasriel, former managing director of freelance platform Upwork.

Facebook’s digital currency wallet Novi, which launched as a pilot in October, will likely be vital to the plans, the people said. “A lot of the Novi-related support features will power NFTs,” said a person with knowledge of the plans.

Meta declined to comment.

Missy Hernandez

A body removed from an aqueduct in central California on Sunday is believed to be the missing 30-year-old mother Missy Hernandez.

While a press conference late Tuesday morning, Fresno County Sheriff Marguerite Mims said the corpse was painstakingly recovered by a California Aqueduct dive team near Siskiyou and Dorris Avenues in an unincorporated area just outside of Huron, California.

A press release notes previous efforts in the case:

Due to the suspicious circumstances surrounding her disappearance and the time that had passed without any sign of Hernandez, detectives presumed she was deceased. Based on digital evidence discovered later during the investigation, several locations were identified as search locations for Missy’s body. On two occasions, our search and rescue team was assisted by the Kern County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue team as they traveled the Grapevine portion of Interstate 5, checking areas of Frazier Park and Beak. Meanwhile, two separate ground searches were also conducted along the Highway 198 corridor in western Fresno County.

On Jan. 16, deputies conducted what Mims called “a dangerous diving operation in a specific area of ​​the California Aqueduct” for three hours in freezing water where, ultimately, “Hernandez’s body was was discovered weighted below the surface”.

“We knew it was very important to find Missy’s body,” the sheriff continued. She said the discovery offered “relief” and “closure” to investigators and surviving family members of the deceased woman.

Mims noted the difficulty of the search and cited the presence of ‘sludge’ in the channel which she said often frustrated detectives’ attempts to maintain visibility as they searched for Hernandez, who had disappeared. for about 40 days from the beginning of December. Last year.

As Law&Crime previously reported, the beloved artist’s boyfriend, Ramon Jiménez, 41, was arrested and charged with murder in early January after law enforcement allegedly found, during a month-long investigation, “an overwhelming amount of forensic and digital evidence”, including DNA indicating “a violent act”.

At Tuesday’s press conference, Mims said she would not reveal details of the digital evidence gathered by investigators in the current case or the alleged victim’s “manner of death”.

The sheriff, however, noted that the digital evidence showed several possible locations “well beyond Fresno County” where authorities from multiple law enforcement agencies were looking for Hernandez. In response to a question about the relevance of where the body was found, Mims said the homicide occurred on South Chestnut Avenue in Fresno, California. She went on to allege that Jimenez simply used the aqueduct as “a hiding place to dump his body.” ”

Fresno County Assistant District Attorney jerry stanley said the discovery of the body “adds a vital piece of evidence” to the case against the accused.

Jimenez is currently being held in Fresno County Jail for murder and domestic violence. He is not eligible for bail.

Hernandez leaves behind a grieving family, including her 11-year-old daughter. There is currently a GoFundMe for their funeral expenses.

The deceased woman’s niece fondly remembers her aunt on the fundraising page:

My Aunt Missy Hernandez always lived her life making sure everyone around her knew they were loved and knew they could count on her. She loved so much and gave so much to everyone who came into her life, whether she knew you or not. That’s the kind of person she was, the loving, caring, selfless person who always gives and always puts others before her own needs. Her life could be all kinds of chaos, but she never wore it on her face; she directed her attention to the lighter side of things and taught others to do the same. And even when she was really tired, she made sure to treat others as if they were just as precious. His was a life that shone brightly just so the paths of others could be lit. His was also a life that exemplified brilliance on every level. I truly believe my aunt was one of the liveliest people on the planet. She was an inspiration to everyone who met her, whether they had known her for an hour or a lifetime. She lived her life to the fullest and made sure to never take a day for granted.

In the description of the fundraiser, Dolly Ayala says her aunt was abused “daily” by a “coward” and that despite “many” attempts to leave, Hernandez ultimately lost her life and her “long fight” with her alleged killer.

During the press conference, a domestic violence advocate spoke generally about the cycle of violence that so often leads to death in comparable cases.

“It’s the worst case scenario”, Marjaree Mason Center Executive Director Nicole Linder told the gathered journalists. “Unfortunately, Missy’s death isn’t the only one to happen this year. There have been several. But that’s exactly what we tried to prevent.

Diving is a precise and fast sport that must be practiced with great care.

Divers adopt a good routine for health reasons. After completing a dive, divers rest well before the next dive. But why do divers shower after each dive? Good, the pools maintain a low temperature of 78.7 degrees Fahrenheit. Thus, divers must warm up their muscles to avoid cramps while rushing to the showers.

Keep reading the article to clarify all your doubts about why divers take a shower. Apart from that, we will delve into other routine tasks performed by divers.

Do divers take hot showers?

Hot showers have significant benefits like increasing metabolism and burning calories. Additionally, warm water is essential for divers to maintain cleaner, healthier skin, as hot water tends to flush out harsh chemicals and toxins.

The diving areas are air-conditioned areas. So when divers step out of the pool, their bodies become cold and tense, which can cause them potential injuries.

To overcome the problem, divers take hot showers or sit in hot Jacuzzis to relax after their dive is over. Heading to hot showers relaxes their muscles and their bodies, which helps divers compete effectively.

Reasons why divers take showers after every dive

It is essential that divers relish their enthusiasm even in the worst of circumstances. By showering after each dive, they stay competitive and enthusiastic. This helps them achieve next level results.

Now let’s look at some of the reasons why divers usually bathe after each dive.

After getting out of the pool, divers feel too much heaviness in their body. This makes them unable to perform with zeal and enthusiasm for the next dive.

With rigid, cold and tense bodies, they cannot move on the next turn. Therefore, it is crucial to warm up and relax the body after diving to avoid the risk later.

  • Get rid of pool chemicals

Pool chemicals can be dangerous and cause skin and eye problems for divers. This can lead to burns, cuts and blisters. The chlorine compound in the pool can also cause digestive or respiratory problems if divers swallow it by mistake. Thus, it is necessary to get rid of it completely to avoid serious health complications.

Internal injuries occur with muscle cramps and pain. Showering after a dive can be a quick fix for this. This helps them relax and soothe their bodies. The instant shower can constrict blood vessels and reduce cardiac stress, which boosts the body’s ability to stay energized for the next dive.

  • To balance body temperature

Blood circulation at a faster rate tends to maintain an ideal body temperature. Showering can help improve blood circulation and maintain the circadian rhythm, which manages subtle changes in body temperature.

How do divers’ bodies get cold after getting out of the pool?

The temperature inside the pool is relatively lower than outside. It is therefore difficult for divers to adapt to the environment after getting out of the pool. Also, the body tends to cool down due to such temperature changes which could make divers sick.

As a diver exits the pool, water continues to evaporate from their skin. The process of evaporation in the form of heat brings a lot of energy. This heat loss indicates that the body temperature is cooling.

Additionally, this instant cooling process can lead to severe cramping and potential injury. Thus, a diver’s core body temperature increases between long waits during dive tours.

Why do divers use chamois?

Chamois, often known as chamois, is a wearable, quick-drying towel. Almost all divers use it in repeated rituals to get completely drenched.

This towel helps divers feel comfortable and safe before getting ready for the next dive. Moreover, it helps them to get rid of the irritation caused by water drops.

When their body is wet, there is a high chance that they will slip, leading to injury and a low score.

Therefore, staying dry also means a lot to divers as they can be more competitive. These tiny towels allow divers to stay warm thanks to their absorbent properties.

Why do divers bind their knees, backs and shoulders?

You must have seen so many divers using bands on various parts of their body. Some of them even tape their backs. The placement of these bands has brought an immense result in providing additional support to the divers.

This tape is called kinesiology therapy tape. It helps relieve joint, ligament and muscle pain. These bands can be very beneficial during dives while reducing the risk of swelling and reduced mobility.

The essential

Diving being a highly competitive sport, the diver has no chance of making the difference between a medal and a sixth place. This sport is one of the most competitive and internationally recognized sports including gymnasts and dancers.

They do their best to win the game. This includes keeping their bodies warm by using showers and towels.

It is important for divers to be comfortable in preparation for the next dive. Showering after divers exit the pool brings many health benefits. Additionally, the hot shower builds mental toughness and prepares divers for the next dive.

Above all, there are shower walls on the pool deck. They can usually accommodate more divers. They even help stretch athletes who only have a few minutes between dives.

We hope you have complete information on why divers take an instant shower without jumping.

Divers found no one was inside a 26ft boat that sank in freezing water at Columbia Point Marina Park on Thursday morning.

the Richland Police and Columbia Basin Dive Rescue volunteers were called to the public docks around 8 a.m. after passers-by spotted the sunken boat during an early morning stroll.

The couple told investigators the boat sank during their hour-long walk.

They reported seeing it moored at the marina for four to five days before it sank.

Admission is free to the gallery, which will be open from noon to 4 p.m. Thursday through Sunday. A public reception for the Queen of the Coast is scheduled from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, January 22, with live music in Koch’s yard from The Wrinkled Teenagers.

The Rincon Classic is one of the oldest and most revered events in California’s rich surfing history, spotlighting generations of the region’s top surfers on the legendary cobblestones of Rincon Point in pristine winter conditions.

The Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center last hosted the Rincon Exhibition in 2020. The crowd of artists, surfers and enthusiasts of Rincon broke attendance records at the Arts Center’s opening reception in the courtyard and the gallery since the opening of building 865 in 2019.

It has been a year since Chula Vista, mother of three Maya “Maya” Millete, was last seen by friends and family, launching an investigation into her whereabouts that has gripped the public.

On Friday, January 7, 2022, the anniversary of her disappearance, NBC 7 takes a look at the case, in the new podcast series “Vanished: The Maya Millete Story”, exclusively on NBC 7’s “Today in San Diego” podcast.

NBC 7 reporter Allison Ash and editor Lindsay Hood have been following the investigation closely. They have spoken to police, family members and many others closely connected with the investigation over the past year.

In episode 1 of “Vanished”, the team speaks with Billy Little, a lawyer and private investigator, who has been hired by Maya’s family to investigate her disappearance.

Little began her investigation just days after Maya went missing. Hear him discuss what he saw inside Millete’s home shortly after her disappearance and what he observed about Maya’s husband Larry Millete – who was arrested and charged of his murder nine months after Maya disappeared.

Maya’s body has still not been found and many questions remain.
