A cruise ship hit and killed a whale and dragged it into the Hudson River this month adding to a growing number of strikes along the Ast investment grade bond Coast this year. NBC reports that a dead 30-foot whale was found on the Brooklyn side of New York Harbor after it was struck the 144,000 ton Norwegian Cruise Line ship called the Breakaway.
Marine biologists conduct a necropsy on an over 55 foot long finback whale on a dock in Jersey City, N. The whale was 45-years-old and a necropsy found that the whale suffered blunt force trauma and broken ribs linking a cruise ship crash as the cause of death. The Huffington Post reports that another sei whale was found dead and attached to a ship that was docking near Philadelphia recently. There was also a third whale strike involving a fin whale but no more details will be available until the NOAA finishes their investigation. Nobody wants to hit a whale,’ said Marjorie Mooney-Seus, a spokeswoman.
So we want people to have a greater awareness that they’re out there now. According to the NOAA the average rate of whale strikes is about one every few weeks compared to three in the past few weeks. The NOAA reported that there were 28 recorded whale strikes in the Northeast between 2006 and 2010. A National Marine Fisheries Service survey found that worldwide there were 292 confirmed whale strikes from 1975 through 2002. There have been no reported strikes of endangered North Atlantic right whales.
For instance, off the coast of Boston, school of fish called sea lance have made the Massachusetts Bay a ‘whale feeding ground. Laura Howes of Boston Harbor Cruises said that twenty to thirty whales are being spotted on every whale watching excursion which is 10 times the usual amount.

Twitter users are left ‘heartbroken’ over Netflix movie Irreplaceable You, labeling it ‘the saddest film EVER made’ – so can YOU watch it without weeping? A shocking video has emerged of a dinghy packed with migrants sinking in the Mediterranean after they mistook a Tunisian trawler for a coastguard ship. The footage appeared on the internet today and comes as the Italian coastguard warned that eight people had died and many more were missing after another migrant boat went down in the Mediterranean. It is not clear if the footage is from this week or from the summer but it clearly shows the large white dinghy aiming itself at the ship. It comes alongside the trawler and, as the migrants desperately try to climb up the side of the fishing vessel, the dinghy capsizes and dozens are thrown into the sea. Many of the migrants clearly cannot swim and only a handful are wearing lifebelts. The video was uploaded onto Youtube, where a commentator says: ‘The crew were reluctant to help since letting them on board would have been a serious security risk as it would have them outnumbered 10 to 1.
The only way to help would be individuals of the crew rappelling down to to the sea line, which would most likely result in their own death as the immigrants would drag them down. The Italian coastguard has a policy of escorting to shore any migrants it finds at sea and it is thought those on the migrant boat thought they would be rescued and taken to Italy if their boat capsized next to the ship. They were unaware it was just a fishing vessel operating out of a Tunisian port. The shocking video comes as Malta-based charity MOAS and the Red Cross reported another tragedy involving another migrant boat. Red Cross Team Coordinator Abdelfetah Mohamed said today: ‘There may be many missing, many dead. The doctors managed to revive several people with hypothermia but it was too late for one of them,’ said MOAS spokeswoman Maria Teresa Sette. The Italian coastguard said today 1,200 people on 11 boats had been rescued during operations overnight.
One wooden vessel was carrying almost 500 people. There were also two smaller wooden boats as well as the usual overcrowded inflatable dinghies. The Red Cross said the survivors included migrants from Syria, the Palestinian territories, Lebanon and sub-Saharan Africa. The latest victims will add to a total of 4,655 migrants confirmed to have died or disappeared in the Mediterranean so far this year, according to counts by the International Organisation for Migration and the UN refugee agency. A ten-year-old boy has revealed his miracle escape from a horrifying school bus crash in India which left 23 children dead.

Twitter users are left ‘heartbroken’ over Netflix movie Irreplaceable You, labeling it ‘the saddest film EVER made’ – so can YOU watch it without weeping? This April, the planets are gathering in two contrasting corners of your chart, and you’ll need to obey both calls. The Sun, Mercury and Uranus are in Aries and your stability-seeking second house—a realm that’s all about hard work and consistent routines. It’s almost like you’re living in two different time grids: the here-and-now reality of the second house and the “but wait, what if we tried it THIS way” spirit of the eleventh. Should you simply go with what’s right in front of you and make it work—the “turning lemons into lemonade” approach?
Or should you keep digging for other options before just settling on Plan A? One Pisces we know is confronting exactly this quandary: She signed a lease on a brand-new apartment only to find right before her move-in date that the construction was only partway done. She’s weighing whether to walk away entirely and find something new—which would also mean losing her security deposit and accruing a stack of legal bills. Her other option is to couch-surf while waiting for the place to be finished, which could take a few more months.
