Shortfin Mako Shark Makes a Direct Bee-Line South – But to Where?

By ak927 FORT LAUDERDALE-DAVIE, Fla.– February 21, 2014 – Researchers say a juvenile shortfin mako shark tagged more than eight months ago off Ocean City, Maryland is tracking a highly unusual path directly south in the mid-Atlantic – a fast track to a mystery destination. “I’ve never seen one act quite like this one,” said Mahmood Shivji, Ph.D., director of Nova Southeastern University’s (NSU) Guy Harvey Research Institute (GHRI) and Save our Seas Shark Center. “The mako is displaying an amazingly directed movement – as if this shark has a specific destination it wants to get to in a hurry,” he added, pointing to a computer screen showing the nearly straight vertical path of a young male mako, dubbed I-NSU. The public can also follow I-NSU in near real-time, courtesy of an interactive online website set-up by GHRI (www.nova.edu/ocean/ghri/tracking/). The tracking website is an educational outreach component of GHRI’s quest to study shark migration patterns, with the ultimate goal being to better understand and protect them, as some species are threatened or endangered. Shivji and his GHRI team have satellite tagged and tracked several species of sharks. I-NSU is among 16 mako sharks tagged with special satellite-linked devices …read more Source: NSU News...

Eating Disorders Affect Millions of Americans

By ak927 FORT LAUDERDALE-DAVIE, Fla.– February 21, 2014- When it comes to eating disorders, awareness is the key. It doesn’t matter if you’re the local high school history teacher, a police officer or the newest Hollywood star – eating disorders affect people in all walks of life. According to the most recent information from the National Eating Disorders Association, approximately 30 million Americans will suffer from an eating disorder sometime in their life. There are many myths and misconceptions when it comes to eating disorders – which can make getting someone the help they need all the more difficult. As we approach National Eating Disorder Awareness Week (Feb. 23 – March 1), it’s important we take time to understand what might be affecting our friends or loved ones and what we can do to help. The first misconception is that you can tell someone has an eating disorder simply by looking at them. In fact, most people with eating disorders – and, more broadly, disordered eating – don’t look different than anyone else. In other words, eating disorders cannot be diagnosed simply by someone’s outward appearance, including their weight. Remember, never judge a book by its cover. Second, and surprising to many people, is that men …read more Source: NSU News...
