Shark Attack!!

beach3For all the adventurers and risk taking travelers, there is big news! If you are planning a vacation, and are thinking or planning on getting into a cage with sharks, read more, to be warned before you are locked into the cage with wild sharks swimming around you.

Recently off the coast of Mexico, there was an experienced diver who dared to get into a cage where sharks would swim around him. After he entered the cage, the crew members placed bait close to the cage to get the sharks closer.The tanks are supposed to keep the sharks out, but this time that didn’t work. Footage from “SMH.com” that a crew member was able to capture, shows that the shark approaches the bait, then thrashes into the side of the cage. If you do not know, after Great White sharks lunge and bite something, they automatically close their eyes, which means they can not see where they are going. These sharks also can not swim backwards. This shark lunged at the bait, was temporarily blinded, could not swim backwards, so it rushed forward, breaking the side of the cage.

Luckily, the crew was smart enough to open the top of the tank, where the shark was able to escape out of the top, and swam away from the diver and the crew. The diver was shaken up but okay and blamed no one. He still had three more days of diving, and continued his diving the very next day. There are some precautions that are advised to take before you dare dive with sharks. First, you need to know the risk. Shark attacks are very rare in this case, but they still happen. Know the environment. What kind of sharks will be around you? You need to remember you are in their territory, they are not in yours. Remain calm, this is an opportunity not everyone gets, enjoy it!  These opportunities are available in nearly all areas that have an ocean nearby, but research the company and look at the reviews to make sure they are experienced. Before you start to plan your summer trip, think of the precautions, and the danger of the activities you are doing. Is it worth the risk? For thrill-seeking adventurers, it just might just be.

Overcrowding at Kuna High School has been a problem for many years. The school has over 1,400 students, and it was only built for 1,200. With the immense student body consistently getting bigger each year, many problems have been arising, including limited parking. While for years, the parking lot has been a problem, this year, a solution was formed: parking passes.
