DVD Available at: *******www.longtailnet****/2284 Australian scientist Mark Gordon goes in search of the missing link between the squid and the octopus. In this program we peer into the private lives of cephalopods: squids, octopuses, cuttlefish and the mysterious chambered nautilus. Some octopuses have arms two meters long; the smallest squid has a whole body no longer than 20 millimeters. These highly evolved shellfish display an incredible variety of behavior using color-change, highly maneuverable arms, a water jet-propulsion system and a large brain. Mark achieves his goal among some very unusual squids living at the bottom of the ocean.

*******www.topfishingtips**** , for fishing tips click the link! Fishing is the activity of trying to catch fish. Fish are normally caught in the wild. Techniques for catching fish include hand gathering, spearing, netting, angling and trapping. The term fishing may be applied to catching other aquatic animals such as molluscs, cephalopods, crustaceans, and echinoderms. The term is not normally applied to catching aquatic mammals, such as whales, where the term whaling is more appropriate, or to farmed fish. According to FAO statistics, the total number of commercial fishermen and fish farmers is estimated to be 38 million. Fisheries and aquaculture provide direct and indirect employment to over 500 million people.[1] In 2005, the worldwide per capita consumption of fish captured from wild fisheries was 14.4 kilograms, with an additional 7.4 kilograms harvested from fish farms.[2] In addition to providing food, modern fishing is also a recreational pastime.

BY RICHARD LAYCOCK A recent discovery has got the scientific community and the web talking. And for maybe the first time in history, they all seem to agree. Palaeontologist, Mark McMenmin, believes he has discovered the remnants of a creature from Norse lore and the silver-screen: a “Triassic Kraken”. Slate has more. “Paleontologist, Mark McMenmin, announced his theory after seeing a bizarre arrangement of dinosaur bones in Nevada. The pile of Ichthyosaur bones seem to mimic the debris that the modern-day octopus uses to camouflage its den. There is no direct evidence of a Kraken like creature but McMenimin says that’s because the soft tissue of the Kraken would not last long enough to fossilize.” But a writer for Science 20 says the hypothesis is specious reasoning. In an article entitled ‘You're Kraken Me Up,’ she dismisses the claim and expects others will do the same. “If your reaction to this bizarre claim is to snort something that starts with B and ends with it, you're not alone.” McMenmin’s claim is copping flak from all directions. Discovery**** cautions readers to not to let their imaginations run wild. “We all love a good story, particularly if it involves ancient sea monsters big enough to take down ships. But when you start hearing from scientists that those same sea monsters were expressing themselves artistically, it may be time for journalists to question the difference between a good story and solid science.” An evolutionary biologist at the University of Minnesota, Paul Myers, says it’s hard not to want the whole thing to be true. Unfortunately, he says on Science Blogs, Mcmenmin’s science just doesn’t have the legs- or tenticles. “At first I thought this discovery was really cool, because I love the idea of ancient giant cephalopods creating art and us finding the works now. But then, reality sinks in: that's a genuinely, flamboyantly extravagant claim, and the evidence better be really, really solid. And it's not. It's actually rather pathetic.” Mcmenmin has remained positive amid the conjecture and maintains, according to slate****, that “We have a good case”. Transcript by Newsy

From the Children's Poet Laureate comes a year-round ode to wacky holidays just begging to be celebrated. Nobody should ever forget Ewe on Ohio Sheep Day (July 14). No mata mata how hard they may try on World Turtle Day (May 23). If you've never heard of Dragon Appreciation Day, International Cephalopod Awareness Day, or Yell "Fudge!" at the Cobras in North America Day, it's not because they don't exist, it's simply that they needed someone to spread the word. Luckily, the fantastically zany poems of J. Patrick Lewis and Anna Raff's equally hilarious illustrations have memorialized these holidays forever. So get out your calendars — from Happy Mew Year for Cats Day to Chocolate-Covered Anything Day, World Rat Day (April 4) calls for a year-round celebration. Available March 12, 2013. Amazon: *******tinyurl****/b4tfsj9 Barnes and Noble: *******tinyurl****/amapbfm Books-a-Million: *******tinyurl****/ancu5v4 IndieBound: *******tinyurl****/av4x2oc Publisher's Weekly says: "Lest readers forget to observe (actual) holidays like Worm Day (March 15) or Yell 'Fudge!' at the Cobras in North America Day (June 2), Lewis offers a lyrical reminder, with several of the special occasions crashed by a squadron of rats. In honor of Pink Flamingo Day (May 29), Lewis fashions a concrete poem: "A Flamingo is a long cooooooooool drink of something pink," and for International Cephalopod Awareness Day, a scuba-diving rat with a toilet plunger greets a doe-eyed octopus: "I wish I was an octopus/ In inky-dinky weather./ Then you and I could octopush/ Our suction cups together." Raff's loose washes with ink details exude personality and humor (a skunk's photo shoot has her posing next to a bottle of "Eau de Eeeew!") in this gleefully silly crowd-pleaser." J. PATRICK LEWIS has written more than seventy books for children and is the current Children's Poet Laureate. He lives in Ohio, where, between author visits at schools, he weeps copious tears that his grandchildren live so far away. ANNA RAFF is an illustrator based in New York City where there are reportedly four rats per human resident. WORLD RAT DAY is her first book with Candlewick Press.
