Wet Notes - 9-13-21

"This is wet notes here on scuba shock radio from monday september thirteenth. Two thousand twenty one first up today is in another idea for diving with a purpose in one of the most recent newsletters from the coral restoration foundation the coral chronicles. There was a report that cr f. is teaming up with the atlantis. Dive resort in douma getty to offer a unique opportunity to participate in a week long program at the result in helping them build and maintain the largest coral nursery endowing. Actually the town where. Atlantis is located. The program is being sponsored by the coral restoration foundation. The loveland living planet aquarium and the meat foundation. The program runs from september twenty fourth to october. First two thousand twenty two there are planned educational sessions on coral ecology along with restoration efforts and techniques. You also conduct restoration. Dives along with some fun dies. This sounds really fascinating. One of the pictures into newsletter showed the table coral at apo island. I vividly remember that area when we dove air in two thousand nineteen there wasn't any pricing available in the article and you'll have to contact the hotel directly if you have the time and desire to dive with a purpose check out this program and market on your calendar. Long time ago. Donna and i lived in hawaii that was in the mid nineteen eighties. At that time we got to experience. What was probably one of the first while in walls in honolulu. If you're not familiar with wilem walls you can check them out. The wall was a large mural of the humpback whale on the side of a building near waikiki. It was quite impressive. Well it might not be a while and wall but if you happen to be near brant rock in mansfield massachusetts you can catch a the view of a mural of a large shark painted on the side of an old restaurant according to wicked local dot com. The mural was painted by a local artist. Shane leonard. Shane was a former football player at boston college. Who has a passion for painting and a passion for sharks. Now the muros on the side of the former arthur and patch restaurant that closed back in two thousand fifteen. The shark faces divers as they head down ocean street which is a one way street. So you can't miss it say. Shane says he likes the way shark. Show emotion. the photo is pretty impressive. there's no guarantee that the building won't be torn down. Now that is unoccupied but according to shane. Even if it doesn't survive it was worth doing so if you happen to be near mansfield mass check out the shark mural on ocean street about a month ago. Patio wear foundation announced their fourth annual aware week. Now this year it will run from september. Eighteenth through september twenty six two thousand and twenty one the whole idea behind aware week is to empower the global dive community to lead or take part in conservation activities in courses focused on local action for global impact in the past aware has focused on two elements marine debris and vulnerable marine species this year in concert with patties blueprint for ocean action. They're adding three more components. Climate change marine protected areas and coral reefs. Some of the ways. That dive shops can participate or by conducting aware classes like dive against debris coral conservation or the aware specialty. Also like us. You can become a one hundred percent aware dive centre where you provide a monthly contribution in support of the patty certifications you award. We are very proud to be one hundred percent aware. But here's something that. Patty aware foundation needs to work on. We need more notice as to win. Aware week is happening. I wasn't sure what was happening this year and our calendar filled up and we weren't able to get things scheduled as i mentioned at the top of the show. We've already created are twenty twenty two calendar and it would be nice to know when aware week twenty twenty two is happening. I also mentioned at the top to show that the re photo contest results were in and that i didn't win while scuba diving magazine. Magazine's two thousand and twenty one through the lens contest is also complete. The winners were recently released at scuba diving. Dot com and the photos will be revealed in september october special photo issue. They received one thousand seven hundred and nineteen photos from around the world. The contest categories included behavior compact camera macro and wide angle. The entries were judged on beauty originality and unique encounters. I check them out and they are spectacular. I only wish. I had the talent impatience to do that kind of work. Now if you wanna get a jump onto twenty twenty two contests they will start accepting entries january third two thousand twenty two and you can submit your photos through may thirty first two thousand and twenty two and finally we recently received our two thousand twenty two aqualung buyer's guide along with information on all the new products coming down from aqualung apex. So i thought. I'd give you a little preview on what's on the horizon. I from aqualung. They are releasing a new regulator the helix pro and the helix it looks like the helix pro is a mid range regular and i think it's replacing their core. It is a balanced first and second stage in his environmentally sealed with four low pressure ports and two high pressure ports. It was built for cold water and has the automatic closure device or a cd. lower end. helix is not environmentally sealed. And it doesn't have a cd and it's designed for warmer water. Also coming out in two thousand and twenty two is their new. Aqua fluck aqua flex men and aqua flex woman wetsuits. I think it's a redesign of their tried and true. Aqua flex line they also have a two millimeter. Free flex wetsuit now. The i one hundred computers going to come in a new color yellow and speaking of colors. They've added a number of different colors to various products including something called sand petrol red and orange as for eight packs. They also have a new regulator the xl four osha and it is billed as a totally sustainable regulator bay from post consumer waste it comes in grey or mint with some great etching. On the first stage. I suspect it's just like the xl four plus being an overbalanced diaphragm regulator with two hp and four l. p. ports. It looks pretty. Sharp and apex is releasing a new dive computer to the sx. It will be program can program up to six gases and monitor six transmitters. The has a titanium basil making it lightweight endurable but also has a color display. There's something more that require. Some more research It says it has in oh to analyze or onboard. But no to sell gotta check that out a little bit. There's a lot more out there and over time. I'll give you more updates from both aqualung and apex. Well that wraps up wet notes. Here on scuba shock. Radio for monday september thirteenth. Two thousand twenty one

"ocean sustainability" Discussed on Progressive Talk 1350 AM

"To texts up. I'm your host, Jonathan Strickland. I'm an executive producer with I Heart radio and I love all things Tech and it is time for the news or Tuesday, February 16 2021 let's get to It and we will begin with an update on these solar winds Hack a massive supply chain hack that's had a critically dangerous effect on numerous companies and governmental agencies with the potential for a lot more damage further down the road solar winds makes I T system management software. So you know the type of stuff the network administrators might use to monitor and control really complicated computer networks hackers likely backed by Russia. Compromised a piece of software called Orion on the solar winds side of everything, and they inserted malware into the software code for the O. Ryan product. So when solar winds pushed out, updates to Orion Solar winds customers who accepted those updates because solar winds as a trusted partner, they unknowingly infected their own systems with a Trojan type of malware. That attack hit thousands of customers. But the hackers actually only followed up with a few dozen of them to further infiltrate and spy on targets that ranged from Microsoft to the United States Department of Homeland Security. Now. Microsoft says that after analyzing the code found in Orion, researchers reckon that maybe as many as 1000, or more developers had worked on that malicious code, which is itself consisted of 4032 lines of code. More than 1000 developers. That is a truly huge endeavor, something far beyond independent hacking groups. Microsoft President Brad Smith indicated that this sort of attack was new to the United States. But Russia had previously employed a similar approach in cyber attacks on systems located inside the Ukraine. If you want to learn more about the solar winds hack I had a an episode with hacker extraordinaire Shannon Morse. She joined Tech stuff. The episode. Is titled The Solar Winds Hack it published on February 1st and Shannon and I explored the scope of the solar winds attack and what it all actually means. Spoiler alert. It's not good. And now let's switch to a collection of stories that I like to call. Eat the rich. And we've got some more updates on that story of Wall Street bets and the Gamestop stock this time looking at how the United States government is getting involved so quick refresher. Some hedge funds decided to short sell shares A Gamestop. That's when you borrow shares of stock. You sell them at whatever the current market value is for that stock. Then you buy back those borrowed shares so you can return them to the original owner, and what your hope is, is that the price of the shares will drop so that you make money on the deal. So let's say you sell some borrowed stock for 20 bucks a pop and you buy it back when it's at $10 a share. You just made $10 a share as you return the stock to the person who borrowed it from but a group of independent investors day traders. Communicating on forums like Reddit and a Subreddit called Wall Street Bets, decided to foil this plan by buying up game stop shares and encouraging others to do so. Now that pushed the price of the game stop shares up, not down. Then you had hedge funds freaking out because they were going to be obligated to buy back those shares they have to in order to return them, and now they would have to pay more money than they made when they sold off those borrowed shares and the Wall Street bets. Folks kept buying up more stock as soon as it would become available, which pushed the price even higher, creating a short squeeze. It hit a high of around $483 per share. Uh, This was well above the $20 a share that it was that before all this happened, and that share price has actually settled off quite a bit right now. As a record, this is around $52 per share. But that's still more than twice what it was when all this started, and the U. S. House of Representatives wants to talk to a few people about everything that's been going on. Among those people are Steve Huffman, the CEO of Reddit. And flawed 10 Ev, the co CEO of Robin Hood, That's an app that allows its customers its users to buy stocks through the APP. And also, they want to talk to Keith Gill, who has the online moniker of Roaring Kitty. He's been invested heavily in Gamestop since back in 2019, and he posted about it frequently. The Senate also wants to get involved. They want to determine if there was any manipulation of the stock market going on here, But on the surface that doesn't seem to be the case, at least not for the price to go up. Sure, there were independent investors all working together to buy up shares of stock, but then itself isn't manipulation. In fact, the Wall Street bets crew maintains that hedge funds That short sell companies frequently engage in activities that are specifically meant to devalue That company's share price that seems to fall more under the manipulation umbrella also on the table or talks about Robin Hood, which famously put a freeze on how many shares of Gamestop Users could actually purchased and in some cases, they just stopped anyone from being able to buy Gamestop shares at all through Robin Hood. The House will examine if Robin Hood broke any federal regulations in the process of that. As numerous media outlets have shared. A major hedge fund owns a significant stake in Robin Hood and the Wall Street bets. Crew has maintained that the APP is kind of part of a system that rewards the wealthy at the expense of everybody else. The U. S. Senate is also looking into the current state of the stock market in general, and the hearing in the House of Representatives should take place on February 18th. Starting at noon Eastern time. They'll also be streaming it live just in case you know you're interested in tuning in. Researchers with the Duke University School of Business published a report that an elite group of companies are responsible for more than half of all the revenue generated. From the ocean economy. So we're talking about around 100 companies responsible for $1.1 trillion in revenues, or about 60% of all revenue from ocean based economic activities. This is based off data that's actually a couple of years old, so it might even be more dramatic than that in 2021. Now, If you're like me, you might have had a pretty rough reaction to that news. I mean, that's an enormous amount of influence with a very small number of organizations. But luckily for me, the researchers provide a voice of cautious optimism about all this, one of the authors of the study has said quote one of our biggest challenges is to sustain healthy ocean ecosystems as economic use increases. And climate impacts accelerate. This study confirms that a relatively small number of companies will be central to this challenge and have a real opportunity for leadership end quote. So with that perspective, you could argue that it's actually easier to convince a relatively small number of companies to make some big changes that could have enormous benefits for millions. And it would be a lot easier to do that than to try and convince a ton of smaller companies that each have a smaller amount of influence and thus have a small stake in a very big pool as it were. Companies in the study included oil and gas companies that conduct offshore Mining operations, seafood production and processing, shipping, cruise tourism, offshore wind companies and more. The lion's share of that $1.1 trillion of revenue actually falls into surprise. Surprise the oil and gas company slice of the pie. These companies had a combined revenue of $830 billion Or 75% of the whole thing, Elsa now will these companies make the major changes to address sustainability challenges? Well, if shareholders demand it and pressure the companies to do so, or if the leadership of those companies takes these issues like ocean sustainability and climate change really seriously,.

"This is what notes here on scuba shack radio for sunday. July eighteenth two thousand and twenty one first up. Today is an update on the upcoming boston. Sea rovers clinic. Historically the clinic was held in the early part of march just before the start in the northeast dive season. The show actually happened in march. Two thousand twenty just before the country shut down it was probably the last scuba diving show before cove. It wasn't possible to conduct the clinic in march. Two thousand twenty one as we were still at a high point of covy nineteenth spread infections so the decision was made to move the show to the first weekend of october in two thousand twenty one fall in massachusetts. That should be pretty neat. Tickets are on sale now for the boston. Sea rovers to day clinic in danvers massachusetts. Right now the early bird special is still available. You can attend the daytime. Saturday and sunday clinic along with the saturday night. Film festival for seventy five dollars. You can pick and choose your options and that's a pretty good deal. Don't wait check out the boston. See your oversight for all the details and get your tickets now now. Here's something new to help you with your fish identification. It's something called name that fish dot com name. That fish dot com was created by a guy named jake easterling and he is the co founder of a company called scuba. School botox mission is to reduce the cost and time requirements to monitor coral reefs by using artificial intelligence autonomous underwater vehicles and citizen science. I guess and of course this work. Jake developed a database of fish and came up with the idea of taking people's underwater video footage and identifying fish in the video. If you go to the name net fish dot com website you can view short video on what the finished product looks like. Jake also has assured Tutorial on how to make a submission the site says it will accept dot m. p. four emo v dot j. peg in png files. Max file. Size is one hundred megabytes and must be at least seven hundred. Twenty p or higher processing time is one to five days the more fish more processing the rare species. The longer it takes to verify and if your quality isn't that good don't be don't need more time to process. There's a little bit of disconnect on pricing. Jake says into in his short tutorial that you can set any price you think is best but there's also a button that says it costs three ninety nine in any event. Why don't you just go out and take a look at name. That fish dot com. I recently hadn't really interesting email. Come across my desk a few days ago and it was from reef divers. If you're not familiar with reef divers they operate with the clearly came in resorts. Cobol coast on grand came and the little cayman beach resort and the beach resort. They're known for their valet diving. Well reef divers is expanding our operation in the caribbean to turks. Keiko's now they are partnering with east bay resort on south. Keiko's it looks like they plan to be up and running there by late. August east bay resort sits on a mile long beach and boasted. Every room has a beach view. To get south goes she'll need to fly into providence jalis and then you can take either a short air hop over or board the ferry. It's not that long of a ride resort officer an all inclusive option. That seems pretty good reef divers outstanding operator in the caymans so sure that you can look forward to superior valet service from nemo turkson. Keiko's as well so many places to go diving. What it dilemma. Just about every week. Get an update from michael light. Any contains various tips and tricks for better underwater photography plus they also provide some product updates but also in this email is some other interesting information last week. They introduced me to an organization called washed ashore and the articles title said using discarded plastic to save the ocean. Now washed ashore. It is a five. Oh one three or c three nonprofit arts and environmental education organization aimed at bringing to light the world's plastic pollution problem. Well how well washed ashore started by angela ponzi who is a lifelong lover of the ocean and after the death. Her husband from a brain tumor. She turned to the ocean for healing. What she also found was that the ocean needed healing as well so she turned her artistic talents into creating sculptures. That are marine-related using the plastic. That is washed up ashore and they do some spectacular sculptures. I was also amazed by the fact that they have over fourteen thousand volunteers. Working with washed ashore. These are not small sculptures. Either you can check them out at washed ashore and take a look at some of their work. You will be amazed well. I'm sure that we've all heard about the billionaires who are competing to go into space amazing stuff for someone who grew up at the start of the space race in the nineteen sixties. But there's also another race going on and that's the race to build the world's deepest pool at the top of the list. Right now is deep dive. Dubai located in nod al sheba. Which is fifteen minutes from downtown dubai. It's an amazing sixty meters deep. That's one hundred ninety seven feet and contains fourteen million liters of water or three point. Seven million gallons. The pools constant thirty degrees celsius or eighty six degrees fahrenheit. It is team doesn't abandon sunken city. Now that's pretty cool. They have an onsite hyperbaric chamber restaurant gift shop and dive shop. Put this in perspective. The other deep pools around the globe include. Why forty in italy at forty two point one five meters deep spot in poland at forty five point four meters and there's either one coming online or it's online and crom cornwall england. That's called blue vis at fifty meters deep. I wonder if there's some kinda limit on just how deep can build a pool. I'm sure we'll be amazed and finally today. Here's another message in a bottle story. this time. It comes from michigan. It seems that jennifer dour the owner and operator of nautical north family adventures of scuba snorkeling. Glass bottom boat company was cleaning a windows on her glass bottom boat in the cheboygan river when she spotted the bottle inside. The bottle was a message from ninety. Five years ago it read will the person who finds a bottle return his paper to. George morrow cheboygan michigan until where it was found. The message was dated november. Nineteen twenty six. Jennifer posted this on social media and george morrow daughter michelle who's now under seventies reached out michelle indicated that her father was probably eighteen years old when he put the message out. There sounds like the battle didn't travel very far. However now i wonder just. How many messages in bottles are out there. Well that's it for this edition of wet notes here on

"This is wet notes here on scuba shock radio for sunday july fourth two thousand and twenty one first up today i wanna talk about re fest two thousand and twenty one this october. The reef environmental educational foundation will again be holding refenced from thursday october fourteenth to sunday october. Seventeenth in key largo. That's four days of some great activity. The festivities kickoff on thursday. And one o'clock. You can then get a couple of days of diving in on friday and saturday morning with a two tank dive from either key divers amaury dive resort or essence. Those charters run about ninety dollars and they go out at eight am. If you wanna do a kayak tour you could also do that. For sixty dollars with florida bay outfitters. There are seven afternoon workshops and seminars and activities at john pennekamp park the coral reef restoration foundation. The history of diving museum and the florida keys. Wild bird sanctuary. Wow this sounds like a great event. Unfortunately i won't be able to make it down due to a family obligation but this sounds really good. Be sure to check out repressed. That's reef fest. Two thousand twenty one on their website. Well who watches the tv. Show curse of oak island. I think matt has watched every episode. And i think they're still searching for treasure but i came across an interesting article about one of the guys on the show. I guess tony sampson had a strange situation happen about a year ago tony's frequently on the show and he runs a tour company called salty door. Salty dog tours. Well he was taking some tourists out when one of his guests hat blew off so quickly turned the boat around to fetch the hat. And that's when he spotted something else a voter in the water. Apparently the boater was on his maiden voyage with this new boat when it capsized and he couldn't get to his life jacket because it was tied to the boats seat ono so tony fortunately rescued the voter in what is called the oak island triangle triangle. I guess the boat subsequently washed up on oak island now at least those guys found something there about a year ago. Olympus announced that they were getting out of the digital imaging business and that they would not be making cameras any longer and that would have been a shame if these Tech this technology went by the wayside. I really liked my Olympus t g six. well don't worry. A new company named 'em digital solutions is producing the old olympics. Cameras binoculars audio gear. They took over in january. Two thousand twenty one. Their website is get olympus dot com. Now if you want to know more about the company checkout oem dash digital solutions dot com. This company is based out of tokyo. And it's led by sha guinea saga motto all digital solutions employees about two thousand people with evaluation of twenty seven billion yen or about three hundred and thirty three million. Us dollars the oem comes from the nineteen seventies oem solutions that they put in place to make cameras smaller more rugged and quieter. This is great news especially for us olympus fans. Here's some sobering news out of florida. The manatees are under stress as of june fourth. This year. Seven hundred and eighty two manatees have died in two thousand twenty one alone and that's a one hundred and fifty one percent increase from the three hundred and thirty one that died during the same period last year to put this in perspective. The record number of deaths for manatees in a year is eight hundred. Twenty one or eight hundred and twenty four and that was in two thousand eighteen. This increase is so dramatic that representative vern buchanan from florida wrote a letter to the us fish and wildlife services to change their status from threatened to endanger and that's the highest level of protection here in the us. The florida manatee used to be on the endangered list until two thousand and seventeen when their numbers rose. Above six thousand six hundred they now estimate a census of about seventy five hundred but as we can see that number is going in the wrong direction. Now what's the cause food availability. The seagrass is being killed off by oversaturation of nutrients and the manatees simply. Starve to death. Not sure how a change in status will solve the sad scenario but we need to start someplace. Well it's summer. And i know that a lot of people like to catch up on summer reading while they're on vacation we'll scuba diving. Magazine just published a list of books that you might consider in their armchair adventure section. A couple of book stood out. One of them was in oceans deep courage innovation and adventure beneath the waves. And that's written by bill steve. And it's a history of our underwater presence. He covers submarines saturation diving and recreational gear. Bill also goes into the impacts of aro vs versus in-person exploration. You can pick up this book in ocean deep for about fifteen dollars in paperback. Now the second book is exploration deep ocean the first descent to the bottom of all five of the world's oceans and it's written by josh young. The book covers the exploits of victor scovill and his team on their history-making mission. You can find this book in hardcover for a little over twenty one dollars time to kick back with some good summer reading and finally here on wet note if you're a collector of vintage gear or want to start mark your calendar for the vintage scandal auction on july seventeenth.

Well when the charges go off you see the divers being violently tossed about but they're okay. They were just far enough away from the concussion back on the boat. Mike tells us that he has started with twenty men but now he is down to their.

The revolutionaries have set up a concrete and steel screen across the channel. The only way through is to blast but they wanna confused patrol boats and the floor so they set off a series of bombs in different locations while they blow up the screen. One two three bombs go off in the guards and savannah are confused with a concrete and steel screen blown apart. Mike leads the divers through just then tomasz takes off. Where's he going. He makes his way to the sea wall and is ready to fire off his flare gun to signal the four when mike jumped him they didn't tie tomasz to a floating rafts off the island and set off a smoke bomb again to confuse the revolutionaries mike and i had to the other side of the island. They're getting shallower and shallower into a mike. Pops his head up all clear and they get out of the water and ditched her scuba gear. The raft trick worked by tells indio and he tells them to keep them busy while he gets el presidente. Indio starts tossing grenades. all around. the guards are shooting at everything. Now we see.

"This is wet. Notes here on scooby. Shock radio for may six two thousand and twenty one. I want to start off today with a story. That is a bit of personal meaning to me. And that's a story about what some recreational divers found while diving out in hawaii. Awful and i. Now i have quite a few dives out there. Awful and i and these divers found some unexploded world war two era ordinance. They found two bombs. One was at seventy four feet and the other one was at ninety four feet. The divers immediately notified to hawaii division of aquatic research. Who went out to investigate it and confirmed it was unexploded ordinance the report indicated that the munitions were about three hundred yards offshore. The exact location wasn't disclosed when but it may be in the area of the first and second cathedrals again personal for me. Because i have probably about at least twenty. Five dives onto cathedrals as of now. There aren't any more updates and there was no mention on the divers website and they run many charters out to the site. Let's see where this goes. I recently checked out the four ocean blog to see if there was anything of interest will there was a lot but one thing did pique. My interest for ocean occasionally does a blog on plastics around the world. And that's where they identify articles or stories that talk about the plastic crisis facing the world. Now one article was from interesting engineering and it was written by deora as deamer and this was about plastic eating mushrooms. Yes certain types of fungi can ingest and eat plastic apparently in two thousand eleven some yale researchers discovered rare mushroom in the amazon forest and it was able to digest and break down plastics. One of the scenarios suggest that these plastic eating mushrooms could be placed at the bottom of landfills interesting over the years. There have been various successful experiments. So what's the holdup perhaps speed. It takes times for the mushrooms to eat and digest the plastic and there's also competition for other investment now. Here's a bit of disturbing news that i saw from dima apparently there's going to be a virtual meeting of the florida fish and wildlife conservation commission or dfw see on may twelfth and thirteenth one of the topics on may twelfth. I think it is a two. Our discussion is to review and update the goliath grouper. Now this review is to look at if they should allow a limited highly. Regulated harvest of the goliath grouper. Why well that's a really good question now if you go out to the f. w. website you'll be able to find a detailed Presentation on this review. Even if the science holds up and supports the harvest. I would have to ask if the enforcement is of a regulated harvest. Dean feels that. The economic value of the goliath grouper are better served without any harvest and continue the protection they currently have. Sos thousand island. Well what's that all about. Well for those of you are familiar with the saint lawrence seaway in the thousand island region. Sos stands for save ontario shipwreck thousand island chapter now. This was reported in scuba news. Sos thousand island wants to create an artificial reef off of brockville in canada. Why are they making such a bold proposal. Were there are three main objectives. I an artificial reef will reduce the pressure on the local historic wooden shipwrecks and then second. An artificial reef can preserve the maritime history of ships that had been destined for scrap and finally this effort will assist the local aquarium in promoting maritime heritage and discovery. This is still a long way off but there is some good news in that day of identified a ship that could be used and it is the former canadian coast. Guard vessel the c. c. g. s. mont. Mandy now this ship was built in one thousand nine hundred sixty three and it was decommissioned and sold in nineteen ninety nine. Let's see where this one goes. Well here's something that. I just saw from patty. I think it was on the patty pro blog. Patty women's dive day. Two thousand and twenty one is coming and the tagline on the blog was celebrate the connection between mandy and the ocean. This year's patty women's dive day is july seventeenth 2021. This event started six years ago in two thousand and fifteen and it was started as a way to encourage more female participation in sport scuba diving to date there have been over four thousand patty women's dive day events in over one hundred countries. I'm sure last year was a little tough to get events planned and executed safely this year. More places are opening and travel is picking up. Everyone can participate be on the lookout for patty women's dive day event in your local area or maybe even travel to a nice destination to participate and finally today. I thought i'd give everyone and update on traveling. To the bahamas. As of may first the bahamas ministry of health has released new guidelines for entry departure. I if you are fully vaccinated for covid nineteen that's two weeks from your final. Does you don't need a covid. Nineteen tests prior to entry. Nor do you need to fill out the daily health questionnaire or get a covert test. After your fifth day on the island. You'll still need to apply for the bahamas. Health visa prior to entry. And you still need to get a covert test before travelling back to the united states. Now we're heading to nassau a may twenty six th so these changes make things a whole lot simpler. Hopefully more countries will open up. Like the bahamas. Well that's it for wet notes on may six two thousand and twenty one here on scuba shack radio

Wet Notes - 4-23-21

"This is wet notes for april twenty third. Two thousand twenty one here on scuba shack radio. I up just after i recorded. The last episode president biden released his two thousand and twenty two budget. Well if you're a fan of the national oceanic and atmospheric administration or noah. You'll be happy in the budget. Proposal released on april ninth. The president proposed a record budget of six point. Nine billion dollars for knowing now. How does that compare well. This year knows budget is four point. Six billion wow. that's big increase. This budget really supports taking action. On climate change protecting marine mammals the ocean great lakes and coastal communities. If you recall the previous administration has proposed cutting knows budget only to have it restored by congress. Now this is just a first step in the budget proposal. It has a long way to go to get congressional approval. But i think it's a very good first step now. Here's something that's really interesting. I read this in the cayman compass online. It's about a grand cayman. Northside family found a message in a bottle. Yeah on easter. i think it was. The family was out walking on a remote part of the island. A place called the parrot sanctuary. I think this is on the east end. Well that's where patricia dacosta her family recovered an emerald colored bottle with a handwritten message inside the note said thrown into the ocean on six december. Two thousand and seventeen somewhere between the bahamas and florida. If you find this drop us a line and let us know where it ended up. Signed by darren and shannon from evansville illinois and it gave them their email address so patricia them with the news and now darrin shannon are planning to visit grand cayman at some point as for the bottle. The dacosta family's planning to put their own note in the same bottle and send it back out to see what an incredible journey. It's here the second quarter edition of the journal of diving history magazine. It arrived in the mail just after the last show. This latest additions cover story was written by chris. Cole and it is about the divers who worked on the edgewater disaster. It was one of the worst maritime disasters in us history. I'll leave it at that and you can do some of your own research but it was a really interesting article. There's also an interview in the edition. Done by michael newdow with dick rakowski and he's dubbed. The father of nighthawks again. Some really interesting stuff. I highly recommend that you take a look at the historical diving. Society's website if you become a member you'll get the journal mail to you every quarter a pleasant surprise in your mailbox. I received an email from a friend a few weeks ago with the subject line serenity so who can't use a little serenity how about serenity now well it turns out that my friend was asked by our son to watch him cameras for a school project. These live cams were from the monterey bay aquarium so i went to the link and it took me to their landing page for nine different cameras. I'm not going to list them all right now. But you can peek. In on their penguins. Sea otters were moon jellies. There's even a camera for monterey bay itself personally. I like to observe my sealife while diving but these live cams from monterey bay aquarium can fill in and provide that little bit of serenity. Now here's something interesting. That came in from shearwater. You know the makers of the dive computers. They have a contest. It's going to be starting up. In may called the spring shopping spree and the winner will get four thousand nine hundred ninety nine dollars shopping spree at the dive shop of their choice. And here's how it works if you purchase the shearwater in april or if you buy one in may you can register for the contest with their online portal with a proof of purchase. But you don't have to buy a computer to participate. You also be able to register by completing a short fifty word essay on why you like shearwater computers. The lucky winner will be selected at the end of may. And it's another great way to support your local dive shot. Thanks your water for doing this. And finally there was a short article from patty on april twentieth about their meeting with the maldivian government to confirm the protection for sharks. There was some speculation out there that the maldivian government might be lifting the shark fishing ban in their countries waters. Well this can't be good over ten years ago. Patty along with others helped to establish this current protection so the patty staff met with the moldavian ministry of fisheries marine reserves and agriculture's lead zaha wahid. Well here's some good news here at the meeting minister while he said that they were committed to sustainable and responsible management on april twentieth the ministry released a statement that said the maldives does not intend to permit a targeted shark. Fishing in the mouth. These great job. Patty in great job maldives for protecting these critical apex predators. Well that's it for wet notes. For

Wet Notes - 4-9-21

"This is wet notes here scuba shock radio for april ninth two thousand and twenty one first up today. I'd like to give you an update on new netflix. Documentary see spiracy. You might recall that. I introduced you to this film in a previous segment of wet notes. Well it did premiere on netflix's advertised. And i had a chance to watch. She spiracy a couple of weeks ago. The film is eighty nine minutes long and it can be captivating and controversial. Like i said this is certainly raising a great deal controversy especially as it relates to sustainable seafood and fishing. There's a couple of organizations that they called out into spiracy earth island institute and the marine stewardship council actually marine stewardship council issued a response on their website within days of the premier and every day. I see something more coming out related to the controversy. But i encourage you to watch the film and then decide for yourself about what it is saying like. I said lots of controversy. That's spiracy on net flicks now. Here's something that. I found really interesting. I came across an article that talked about how scientists are using thin wales to map out what lies beneath the sea floor. Now according to to seismologists vaclav kina from the czech academy in prague and john nab elec of oregon state university in corvallis oregon the song of the fin. Whales are loud enough to penetrate the earth's crust and revealed deep structures. I guess they have a network of fifty four bottomed size meter seismometers that the tech sound waves traveling through the ground and they picked up the of whales as they were passing by. Now they have a one hundred and eighty nine decibels song and that song can last from two and a half to five hours as they did more analysis they were able to map the underlying rock structures. According to these guys this is just as effective as those air cannons that are polluting the ocean with all that noise how practical this is yet to be seen. But you've gotta admit it is interesting. Now here's an update on the lectured aluminum tanks situation. You might recall back at the end of february. I told you about luxembourg Decision to exit the aluminum tank business and that they were looking to sell their plants in the us and the uk more. Here's some good news. Metal impact out of elk grove village in illinois is acquiring the graham north carolina luxembourg cylinder plant metal impact is no stranger to scuba tank business. They've been around since nineteen fifty nine and in two thousand fourteen. They purchase worthington. Aluminum cylinders has been providing aluminum scuba tanks to excess scuba and see pearls for a number of years. We've got quite a few from excess scuba over the past couple of years and so we're pretty familiar with metal impacts. This is some good news for the. Us aluminum Scuba tank supply chain. There's absolutely no doubt that. The pandemic has had a dramatic impact on the scuba industry. But i guess it's not all bad news if you happen to be in the right place and it seems that hawaii is those right places especially for new diver certifications. There's a recent article in scuba diving magazine. Titled more hawaiians getting certified than before the pandemic turns out that even though the travel has been restricted to and from the islands more locals are turning to scuba aloha scuba on awad who had reported a one hundred and twenty percent increase in new diver certifications. In two thousand and twenty. They went from twenty seven in two thousand and nineteen to eighty three in two thousand and twenty spurred by whole families going for they're open water certification with some great diving. It certainly makes sense to mask up and dive in our aloha state. Last week i was trying to see if the ocean based climate solutions act of two thousand and twenty was being introduced in this session of congress. Well no update on that yet but i did come across something very interesting. There is a house select committee on the climate crisis now. This committee was created during the one hundred sixteenth congress. That was the last one so it hasn't been around long. But they did produce a climate action plan of two thousand twenty. And that's called the congressional action plan for a clean energy economy and a healthy resilient and just america committee is chaired by representative. Kathy castor from florida and the ranking chair is representative garrett graves from louisiana now. I watched their organizing meeting from march nineteenth. Let's say there's just a little bit of difference on the ideas of how to approach In the approaches in making the us carbon zero by two thousand fifty but as representative castor stated. It's time to turn recommendations into policy. Now i'll be tracking our actions and keep you updated here and finally you might recall. Last year the uss bonham rashard an eight hundred forty four foot long and fibia assault ship burned out of control for five days. Now that was in san diego california. But now senator. Marco rubio from florida is proposing that the ship be used to create an artificial reef down in florida little bit of background. The navy did some cost analysis On what it would take to restore the ship to operational status an estimated that that would be somewhere between two point. Five and three point five billion dollars but the cost to decommission and scrap the bonham rashard would be about thirty million dollars. Senator rubio didn't provide any details on where the ship might be sunk and be become an artificial reef but he did say that it could be done for less than thirty million dollars to scrap the ship. This word Happened it would be. We'll keep an eye on it and see where it goes. Fingers crossed that will have another artificial reef down in florida. Something that big to dive on. Well that's it for this installment of wet notes for april ninth. Two thousand and twenty

"ocean sustainability" Discussed on Progressive Talk 1350 AM

"I'm your host, Jonathan Strickland. I'm an executive producer with I heart radio and the love of all things Tech, and it is time for the news for Tuesday, February 16th 2021 let's get to it And we will begin with an update on these solar winds Hack a massive supply chain hack that's had a critically dangerous effect on numerous companies and governmental agency. Is with the potential for a lot more damage further down the road. Solar winds makes IittIe System management software So you know the type of stuff that network administrators might use to monitor and control really complicated computer networks. Hackers. Mike Lee, backed by Russia compromised a piece of software called Orion on the solar winds side of everything, and they inserted malware into the software code for the Oh Ryan product. So when solar wind Pushed out updates to Orion solar winds. Customers who accepted those updates because solar winds is a trusted partner. They unknowingly infected their own systems with a Trojan type of malware. That attack hit thousands of customers. But the hackers actually only followed up with a few dozen of them to further infiltrate and spy on targets that ranged from Microsoft to the United States Department of Homeland Security. Now. Microsoft says that after analyzing the code found in Orion, researchers reckon that may be as many as 1000, or more developers had worked on that malicious code, which itself consisted of 4032 lines of code. No more than 1000 developers. That is a truly huge endeavor, something far beyond independent hacking groups. Microsoft President Brad Smith indicated that this sort of attack was new to the United States. But Russia had previously employed a similar approach in cyber attacks on systems located inside the Ukraine. If you want to learn more about the solar winds hack I had a UNEP Isoda with hacker extraordinaire Shannon Morse. She joined Tech stuff. The episode. Is titled The Solar Winds Hack it published on February 1st. Then Shannon and I explored the scope of the solar winds attack and what it all actually means. Spoiler alert. It's not good. And now let's switch to a collection of stories that I like to call. Eat the rich, and we've got some more. Updates on that story of Wall Street bets and the game stop stock this time looking at how the United States government is getting involved so quick refresher. Some hedge funds decided to short sell shares. The game stops. That's when you borrow shares of stock. You sell them at whatever the current market value is for that stock. Then you buy back those borrowed shares so you can return them to the original owner, and what your hope is, is that the price of the shares will drop so that you make money on the deal. So let's say you sell some borrowed stock for 20 bucks a pop and you buy it back when it's at $10 a share. You just made $10 a share. As you return the stock to the person you borrowed it from. But a group of independent investors day traders communicating on forums like reddit than a subreddit, called Wall Street Bets, decided to foil this plan by buying up Gamestop shares and encouraging others to do so. Now that pushed the price of the game. Stop shares up, not down. Then you had hedge funds freaking out because they were going to be obligated to buy back the shares they have to in order to return them, and now they would have to pay more money than they made When they sold off those borrowed shares and the Wall Street bets. Folks kept buying up more stock as soon as it would become available, which pushed the price even higher, creating a short squeeze. It hit a high of around $483 per share. This was well above the $20 a share of that It was that before all this happened, and that share price has actually settled off quite a bit right now. As a record, this is around $52 per share. But that's still more than twice what it was when all this started. And the U. S. House of Representatives wants to talk to a few people about everything that's been going on. Among those people are Steve Huffman, the CEO of Reddit and Blood 10 of the co CEO of Robin Hood. That's an app that allows its customers is users to buy stocks through the APP, and also, they want to talk to Keith Gill, who has the online moniker of Roaring Kitty. He's been invested heavily in, Gamestop says Back in 2019, and he posted about it Frequent Really? The Senate also wants to get involved. They want to determine if there was any manipulation of the stock market going on here, But on the surface that doesn't seem to be the case, at least not for the price to go up. Sure, there were independent investors all working together to buy up shares of stock, but that in itself isn't manipulation. In fact, the Wall Street bets crew maintains that hedge funds that short sell companies frequently engaged in activities. That are specifically meant to devalue That company's share price that seems to fall more under the manipulation umbrella also on the table or talks about Robin Hood, which famously put a freeze on how many shares of game stop. Users could actually purchase and in some cases, they just stopped anyone for being able to buy game soft shares at all through Robin Hood. The House will examine if Robin had broken a federal regulations in the process of that, as numerous media outlets have shared. A major hedge fund owns a significant stake in Robin Hood in the Wall Street bets. Crew has maintained that the APP is kind of part of a system that rewards the wealthy at the expense of everybody else. The U. S. Senate is also looking into the current State of the stock market in general, and the hearing in the House of Representatives should take place on February 18th starting at noon Eastern time. The also be streaming it live just in case. You know you're interested in tuning in Researchers with the Duke University School of Business published a report that an elite group of companies are responsible for more than half of all the revenue generated from the ocean economy. So we're talking about around 100 companies responsible for $1.1 trillion in revenues. Or about 60% of all revenue from ocean based economic activities. This is based off data that's actually a couple of years old, so it might even be more dramatic than that in 2021. Now, If you're like me, you might have had a pretty rough reaction to that news. I mean, that's an enormous amount of influence with a very small number of organizations. But luckily for me, the researchers provide a voice of cautious optimism about all this, one of the authors of the study has said quote one of our biggest challenges is to sustain healthy ocean ecosystems as economic use increases and climate impacts accelerate. This study confirms that a relatively small number of companies will be central to this challenge and have a real opportunity for leadership. Unquote. So with that perspective, you could argue that it's actually easier to convince a relatively small number of companies to make some big changes that could have enormous benefits for millions. Then it would be a lot easier to do that than to try and convince a ton of smaller companies that each have a smaller amount of influence and thus have a small stake in a very big pool. As it were. Companies in the study included oil and gas companies that conduct you know, offshore mining operations, seafood production processing, shipping. Cruise tourism, offshore wind companies and more. The lion's share of that $1.1 trillion of revenue actually falls into surprise. Surprise the oil and gas company slice of the pie. These companies had a combined revenue of $830 billion, or 75% of the whole thing yells to Now. Will these companies make the major changes to address sustainability challenges? Well, shareholders demanded and pressure the companies to do so. Or if the leadership of those companies takes these issues like ocean's sustainability and climate change really seriously. Perhaps I withhold judgment on Lee because I've seen a lot of companies act in short term self interest. Over long term viability. But I hope the attitude of the researchers does reflect reality.

Dive Agains Debris

"Last weekend we did something new and something I found extremely rewarding. We conducted the Patty project aware dive against debris specialty course. This all came about as I was working on what the shop would be doing during project aware week this year. Since advocating for ocean health and sustainability is a key part of our mission as a dive shop. It just felt like this was a good thing to do. We couldn't get it done during project aware week because we had other stuff going on. But we got it in. The first thing I needed to do was the research on the specialty course and found out that I needed to get my designation as a dive against debris special instructor. No big deal. I downloaded all the great material from the project aware site studied it and sent my paperwork off to Patty and quickly got my rating. So I want to talk a little bit more on how we conducted the course what it was and what was involved. Like most of our training these days we leveraged our virtual classroom for knowledge development and then we headed out to the ocean a few days later to conduct our dive against debris. During the knowledge development session. We talked all about the sources of marine debris how it gets into our waterways and we all shared examples of problems with Marine debris that we've encountered. We also talked about all the efforts being made to clean up the ocean and we all agreed that a critical step that must be taken is that we have to stop putting trash in the ocean to begin with. From there, we transitioned into discussion the actual dive and how valuable it is to conduct a dive against debris survey. One of the neat things about the course is the dive against debris data card that you can use to complete and record your survey. It's a two-page form that captures all the relevant information about your survey like the location the latitude and longitude depth duration participants and more money. And then you also have a detailed check list to catalogue all the trash you find. I just want to note that you only record trash that you pull out from under water on a Surface are on the beach. It doesn't count. We closed out our virtual session by discussing how to make our survey account and that's by following the five easy steps way sort record disposed and report. We finished up the Night by reviewing the logistics for our Sunday morning dive. Well Sunday morning arrived with some spectacular New England fall weather a great day for diving at Fort Wetherill in Jamestown, Rhode Island, and we were treated to some pretty good visibility. After our dive briefing and going through our plan, we geared up and hit the water with five divers. Our survey time came in at 41 minutes and we managed to pull three pounds of trash from underwater. Of the nineteen pieces of trash we recovered three of them were surgical face masks certainly a sign of the times. Once the sorting and recording was complete we bundled all the trash for proper disposal. I gotta say we all felt really good about our dive with a purpose. And then it was very rewarding to actually record our results in to dive against debris database c r i dive against debris badge next to our one hundred percent aware of like organized aware action badges on this project aware site and then find our survey on the map. When I first started planning this course little did I realize how impactful it would be for me and I think our newly certified dive against debris divers felt the same way home driving with a purpose participating in citizen science while having fun under water is special. If you're die shop isn't doing dive against debris ask them if they might consider doing it you and they won't be disappointed time to make every dive a dive against free.

"Many of us go on die vacations to exotic spots and do a majority of our diving from a boat. I did a piece on boat diving etiquette back in February. And you can check out the archives if you're interested one of the things we don't have to worry about when we were diving from a boat is having a die flag that all changes if we are sure diving. You'RE GONNA have to fly or carry your own die flag now. I I learned about die. Flags in my patty open water diver course like most of us have and we actually used a die flag when we were doing our certification dives at Fort Weather. All in Jamestown Rhode Island. Now I went back to my original open water manual to look at what they covered. Yeah I still have that manual. That was before we had the electronic learning. Now we're all familiar with the red rectangular flag that has the white diagonal stripe but remember. There's also blue and white double tailed pennant. Or Alpha flag that signifies diving operations now according to Patty. The flag must be large enough to be seen from at least one hundred yards or meters away so to give you some perspective. Think about this. You're standing on the goal line of a football field and that you're able to see and more importantly identify that flag placed on the other goal. Line I want to cover a couple of other things about your die. Flat your flag is supposed to be flying so do accomplish. This usually have a wire across the flag to keep it extending now. You GotTa make sure that that wire is in place and there are no rips or tears in the flag the might make go limp remember. You're on that far goal line and it's Kinda hard to pick out the flag if it's not flying also. The flag needs to be seen by any boats in the area and should be at least three feet above the surface. Now that's absolutely necessary. When there are choppy seas the laws in your area may have special requirements. So you're going to have to check them out on the distances etc. But if they don't you WanNa stay within fifty feet of your diet. Flag and boats are supposed to stay one hundred two hundred feet away from die flat. Now I can tell you from experience and seeing it. That doesn't always happen. Boats don't usually respect. Sometimes they don't respect that one hundred two hundred foot rule. The die flags pretty simple is usually has a float and nears. This poll that goes through the middle of it runs through the the float and it usually has a counterweight on the bottom to keep the pole upright. Now you also have a line attached to it. That usually seventy five hundred feet normally polypropylene wrapped around the holder. Like I said it's pretty simple until you get into water you have to practice holding it leading out the line keeping the float above you not trailing way behind pulling the float underwater or getting tangled up in the line of another die flag or your gear. We've seen it all at our open waters in Jamestown. Also remember you need to hang onto your holder. We've seen that to die. Flags get away from people. Remember die. Flags are another important piece of your safety equipment and it's only safe. You know how to use it. So when you're on your shore dive be cognizant of what you're doing with that die flag practice with it and be safe with it.

R. code to cook an I. Q. R. code you can see specifically why we consider that practices thing of all you can also see how we've made traceable and how it socially responsible as well because I feel like you need to deal with all these aspects is not just you know fish we can make sure the people treated with dignity to talk about the warm oceans New England is dramatically affected yeah Gulf of Maine is warming faster than ninety nine percent of bodies of water in the world and I don't know that we know why so now we need to look more at adaptation you know and then changing it because we don't have control of that as you said the sea life is literally moving yeah I mean I was speaking to Andrew person who is chief science officer of the Gulf of Maine research institute a couple years ago yeah he gave me a stomping question he said do you know which state had the largest harvest ever of cod last year and the answer was a surprising was New Jersey and I was like why he said because they have deeper water in deeper waters cold water to the fish is going to hurt the temperature needs to get to and that is necessarily where would beat you got like Black Sea bass where me Maryland used to be where we know the seat of it used to be where most of us caught now because all right to me you know you get different fishing different places in the fisheries management system is used to looking at fish within a box and assessment living the box so we get a better understand where fishes look at different ways to manage it to understand the abundance but we also need to believe looking agriculture for a couple reasons number one when you look at agriculture to feed ourselves you can you have a culture something like like shellfish which is minimal impact you can you have a culture finfish you also can do the land based agriculture which never hits the ocean which the specialist but then you also want to be looking in agriculture as a means to restoration so for example I work with the down the system to open up in Maine and they create stacking up the baby clams for steam account for example so that we can ideally recent some of the best that used to have steamers but don't now so we bring back some of the species that haven't been is abundant in recent years what things like putting kelp should help in the water that helps restore some amounts and in the water when you have too many nutrients and water etcetera you have to look at from a holistic perspective that's one of the things that you can do to improve the overall health of the oceans you really have to do this from a business perspective because your business could be at risk honestly I I wish that I could say is true but it's not because I mean we can import product and farther and farther away our business is small enough that we can find an office somewhere but mean I have to do it in order to earn my place in the human race I do it because it's the right thing to do and I and again I want to showcase a business case for it so that others will follow the lead because as long as people look at it you know as an expense people look at me as a cost center and and I need to show them that I can bring revenue because that's what brings true resilience to these sorts of change thanks to former stave a seafood CEO Richard status and Bloomberg's Janet blue coming up we'll discuss the U. S. Senate impeachment trial of president trump and its impact on the markets this is Bloomberg this is a Bloomberg quick take context and background on issues of interest our focuses on sustainable fashion with Bloomberg's Allegra kept telling him the situation is a movement aimed at making fashion a more environmentally responsible by changing the way because they're made but also transported used and discarded round and took off but it was still very small in the late eighties and in the nine two companies started to the man he was echo now and the argument because of the environmentally destructive production of clothing and textiles is probably going to take a very long time before there is substantial change but I think the first in a crucial step is making people aware of this problem because most people don't know fashion production and consumption for that matter are both very training for.
