Captain Bill Nagle owns the Seeker which is a charter boat that people can rent to take them to shipwrecks. Nagle is a world renowned deep sea shipwreck diver, because he pushes the limits on how far and where divers can go. Nagle has explored some of the most dangerous shipwrecks such as the Andrea Doria and Texas Tower. He has also retrieved various souvenirs from wrecks such as china dishes and the boat’s bell, but Nagle has massive respect for the history of sunken watercraft. Nagle’s sworn enemy is Steve Bielenda, also a shipwreck diver, who was crowned, “King of the Deep.” The bad blood was developed due to the fact that Bielenda doesn’t respect others and
The Lernaean Hydra or Hydra of Lerna is an interesting monster because of its original origin and of how the monster itself is. The origin of this monster is in Greece. The Hydra was created by the ancient Greeks and has been a creature in Greek mythology since then. Famous Greek poets Hesiod, Alcaeus, Simonides, and Euripides contributed to hydra that we all know.
Hercules and Theseus, two great heroes from mythology, seem to be similar in many ways. Both extremely brave and noble; with a love of danger and adventure mixed with compassion, creates the perfect heroes. Their stories intertwine with one another’s when Hercules has to save Theseus from the chair of forgetfulness in Hades. Theseus saved Hercules when he was distraught with intent to kill himself. In a similar way, they both stood by their friends no matter the cost.
Hercules slays the Hydra to the delight of a cheering crowd. The beast has been pummeled to death by a landslide. This seen is familiar to many animated movie fans, but it is not true to the source material. The original myth has been altered to fit a western audience. Despite our western world being heavily influenced by the Greek and Roman society, we have changed the myths of their would to fit the morals of monogamy, heroism, and good vs evil.

Imagine a world where a natural phenomenon, like an earthquake, occurs only because someone forgot to pray to Poseidon before bedtime. Back in the height of the Greek empire, this was very believable in the eyes of many. In the technological era, we all now know, and understand, that an earthquake happens when tectonic plates collide with each other. Holly Yan’s article, continues to tell about how today earthquakes happen, with scientific evidence and proof. She would also explain a theory on why their might be another big earthquake coming soon to California. On the other hand, in The Odyssey, written by Homer, there are many amazing stories about the sea god, Poseidon, shaking the earth in wrath of something that Odysseus has done, ashe tries to stop him from returning home to Ithaca. Not only where these stories fun to listen to, and used to have a good time, but they were also what most of the Greeks believe was happening in their world. Because back then the Greeks did not have the scientific advancements that we now take advantage of in today's day of age.
SeaWorld is a billion dollar company based in the U.S. They specialise in the taking care of animals, such as killer whales, dolphins and sea lions. They have over 67,000 animals in their care and are rescuing more and more every day. Despite common belief, SeaWorld does not abuse the animals themselves. The workers of SeaWorld try their best every single day to look after every species of animal, and in return, are now being hassled and abused for it. Although being held in captivity is not the best way for an animal to spend their life, it has its benefits. Without these animals being cared for by SeaWorld, many of them would be dead. SeaWorld has a rescue program, in which they recuperate thousands of sick marine and land based animals every year. They do not seize healthy animals for captivity.

Brom 's Island is based off entirely off of my own dreams, ideas and visions of reality of my day to day life. This island is an existing planet far beyond space and time. I will give a brief summary a little about my island; It started in 2014 around October when I was having more vivid dreams. I was able to control them better then I have during my 18 years living on this earth. I would mostly dream of me as being one of my character, Kuma and during my younger years, I would always imagine myself as him as well. I remember being on top of a mountain as kuma in one of my dreams, this was the first experience I had when being able to lucid dream. I would get these dreams frequently. Me being on that mountain overlooking a green
Imagine a life or death situation for a marine animal and you have the power to help. Most people would jump to the help. The issue is are rovs valuable? On one side of the debate people argue that ROVs are not valuable for underwater research because rovs don’t have a brain and they have to keep recharging after every drop they do. However, ROVs are ABSOLUTELY valuable to underwater research because they are small so they can fit into small cracks and crevices to fix things or find someone or something in need of help, they are faster than humans and more agile, and they can not be bothered by sharks or other fish that would attack the humans because they don’t taste like blood or have meat like humans do.
Recent discoveries convey an importance to the world’s history. However, different authors convey that idea in different ways. The passage,” New Discoveries in Ancient Egypt” by Bryan Brown and “The Curse of the Pharaohs” by Zahi Hawass suggests that any discovery is very helpful in the long run. On the other hand, “Cities of the Dead” by Denise Rinaldo tells the reader how the discoveries are not important unless you found everything about that topic. One thing all these stories do have in common is that they all share the idea that findings from the ancient times can give us a better understanding of our origins.
Fortunately hope is abundant in our world especially in well off area, but that is not the case for everyone.Despair is a foreboding word that tends to hold the connotation as failure and misery. Despair, a sinister word that exist in the english dictionary to represent the time when someone gives up hope. Despair means the loss of hope, and hope means the faith that one puts in their future.
