Woman Bitten Twice By Shark While Swimming in Hawaii Bay

first_img A woman was hospitalized after being bitten twice by a shark while swimming at a Hawaii bay on Tuesday.The 27-year-old woman was attacked around 8 a.m. on Tuesday while she was swimming off of Napoopoo Park in Kealakekua Bay on the Big Island’s western side, authorities from the Hawaii Police Department said.The woman, who officials have not identified, was transported to Kona Community Hospital with injuries to her lower back and right hip area, police said. She is reported to be in “good health” and is expected to be released from the hospital.The shark is believed to be still in the area, and officials have closed the bay to swimmers and visitors on Wednesday. Shark warning signs were posted on both sides of Kealakekua Bay State Historical Park.Kealakekua Bay, Big Island, Hawaii (Photo Credit: phdpsk / iStock / Getty Images Plus)“The shark is still in the area, so we’re trying to get people out of the water at this time,” Hawaii Fire Department Battalion Chief William Bergin told the Associated Press Tuesday.According to Bergin, the woman was about 50 yards from the shore when the attack happened. It’s unclear is she’s a tourist or a Hawaii resident.Officials believe the shark was a 6-foot black-tip reef shark.“According to local fishermen, this time of year there’s a lot of fish in the area, so it does attract a lot of sharks and dolphins birthing,” Bergin said.The incident marks the ninth shark encounter reported by state officials this year, including one that was fatal. In May, a 65-year-old California man was killed in a shark attack while swimming off the coast of Maui. It was the first shark-bite case in Hawaii resulting in a fatality since 2015.More on Geek.com:Watch: Large Hammerhead Shark Snatches Catch From Captain’s HandsSharks Bite Surfers Two Minutes Apart at Beach in FloridaAerial Photo Captures White Shark Swimming Close to Beach Stay on target Watch: Great White Shark Feasts on Dead Whale in Cape Cod BaySurfer Lands on Massive Shark, Gets Bitten at Beach in Florida last_img read more

Officials St Petersburg subway blast was suicide attack

first_imgST. PETERSBURG, Russia — Investigators searched for possible accomplices of a 22-year-old native of the Central Asian country of Kyrgyzstan identified as the suicide bomber in the St. Petersburg subway, as residents came to grips Tuesday with the first major terrorist attack in Russia’s second-largest city since the Soviet collapse.The bomber, Akbarzhon Dzhalilov, had lived in St. Petersburg for several years, working as a car repairman and later at a sushi bar. Pages on his social media networks reflected his interest in radical Islam and boxing, but those who met Dzhalilov described him as a calm and friendly man.Russia’s health minister raised the death toll to 14, including the bomber. About 50 others remained hospitalized, some in grave condition. Many were students heading home Monday after classes on one of the city’s busy north-south lines.No one has claimed responsibility for the bombing, which came as President Vladimir Putin was visiting his hometown, raising speculation it could have been timed for his trip. The attack follows a long string of bombings of Russian planes, trains and transportation facilities. Many of the attacks were linked to radical Islamists.Before Dzhalilov traveled to St. Petersburg where he eventually got Russian citizenship, his ethnic Uzbek family lived in Osh, the city in southern Kyrgyzstan that saw more than 400 people killed and thousands injured in clashes between ethnic Kyrgyz and minority Uzbeks in 2010.last_img read more

Russia boss disappointed with World Cup result

first_imgRussia boss Stanislav Cherchesov has revealed that he has been left feeling disappointing by the outcome of their World Cup campaign, despite having far exceeded expectations by reaching the quarter-finalsThe hosts were heavily expected to have an early exit in the group stages this summer with even their own supporters doubting their chances of any success whatsoever.However, a 5-0 thrashing of Saudi Arabia in their opening Group A set Russia on their way to their first quarter-final appearance at a World Cup in 48 years after stunning the world by knocking out 2010 winners Spain in the last-16.But a penalty shoot-out defeat to Croatia brought an end to an otherwise spectacular campaign for Russia.While the Golden Eagles did the country proud, Cherchesov is surprisingly disappointed.He told TASS: “Speaking about the emotional aspect, [Russia ended the tournament] on a positive note. But from the point of view of sport, well, sport is all about titles, which we did not get. That’s why we are disappointed,”ScotlandScotland needs a hero: Billy Dodds Manuel R. Medina – September 10, 2019 According to former striker, Billy Dodds his country needs a hero to inspire future generations as the team’s hope to qualify to the EURO 2020 is small.“Two issues should be noted here,” he continued. “The first one – people have united around our team. This task has been completed. But the other one was not implemented in full. Although some teams were objectively stronger than us, this still does not mean anything, as you could see.”“We really wanted to advance to the next round, we were one step away from the semifinal,” he added.The 54-year-old hopes that Russia’s achievements at the World Cup this summer will have a positive effect on the development of young players in the country.“We hope that the new era is beginning in Russia as everyone now wants to play football. In fact, this is what matters most. The question now is how to develop football further. Once it all settles down a bit, we will be able to organize some work in this direction,” Cherchesov said.While it will be difficult to maintain their high standards for physiological reasons, Cherchesov has urged his players to keep up their level of performances in the future.“Neither the Russian tournament, nor championships in other states can match the emotional intensity of the World Cup. No matter what, psychological qualities to a certain extent determine the level of one’s work,” he said. “Surely, the level of competitions will decline, and footballers will have to cope with that. And this is what I told them at the meeting: you must maintain your own athletic level.”.last_img read more

Iniesta praises Arthurs irruption at FC Barcelona

first_imgDuring a visit from the Spanish press to Japan, Andres Iniesta offered an interview where he praised Arthur Melo’s new role in the club and his impact.Just last week, we heard hos Xavi Hernandez spoke about the great impact that Arthur Melo was making in Barcelona but we still hadn’t heard Andres Iniesta’s verdict about the Brazilian.We can’t forget that after the Spaniard left FC Barcelona to play in Japan, the one who took his mythical number 8 shirt was the Gremio product right after he arrived.The way Arthur didn’t hesitate to accept the jersey number surprised everyone at first, but now that he is well-established, people actually understand why he chose to carry on that immense legacy that Andres left at Barcelona.Arthur has been piling up the compliments from all over the FC Barcelona world, former players and teammates alike are amazed at what he has been able to do in so little time.But the biggest test was to get the seal of approval from the two players who preceded him at Barcelona, Iniesta finally was able to talk about him during an interview to Onda Cero through Marca and described some of his best qualities to the audience.🔊 @andresiniesta8 desde Japón: “Tengo muy buena relación con Lopetegui, se portó muy bien conmigo e hizo que me sintiera importante” @ElTransistorOC #IniestaenElTransistor @jrdelamorena https://t.co/aqWMN7cSQd— Onda Cero (@OndaCero_es) November 5, 2018“During El Clasico, I saw Barcelona far more superior than Real Madrid. They didn’t leave much choice,” said Andres during the interview.“If I go back to the club someday, it will be because I’m good at doing whatever they hire me back for.”“I would love going back to Barça because I’ve been there all my life. But I wouldn’t return if I wasn’t prepared for whatever I had to do.”“Arthur will keep improving, I’m sure of it. He is still very young and his adaptation process will end when he let’s loose a little bit more.”“I can already tell that he will command Barcelona’s midfield, it’s all in the way he treats the ball. Arthur knows what the club needs and we will see a better player as he keeps growing and getting more confident.”“Finding a new Iniesta is hard, maybe even impossible because every player is unique. The most important thing beyond looking for players, is that people can learn a style of play.”David Villa, FC BarcelonaTop 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.“Finding that style is what will make finding great players easier, people who can play for Barcelona.”“We need to start betting for players such as Aleña, Denis Suarez or Riqui Puig who has done the preseason with the club and he did it quite well,” he concluded.🎙️#IniestaenElTransistor “El pase a Podolski el otro día salió bien, no era fácil, pero tampoco era fácil su remate” pic.twitter.com/mNmQHt815s— El Transistor (@ElTransistorOC) November 5, 2018Iniesta’s unique assist in JapanBefore his interview and some other commitments, Andres Iniesta gave Lukas Podolski an assist that he had never done before.Just as the German striker was making his move into the box, Iniesta stopped time for a fraction of a second and decided to dink the ball over all the defenders in order to find Podolski to deliver a beautiful assist for the goal whilst playing a match for Vissel Kobe.The player explained that he loved the assist but he also gave Podolski a little bit of credit, because the strike wasn’t easy.Andres is also quite surprised by the technical ability that many players in Japan possess, he didn’t expect them to be as good and he is currently going through a good moment for Vissel Kobe.What surprised the rest of the world the most about this interview for Onda Cero, was the statement in which he hinted that he may return to Barcelona as a manager in the distant future.There are still no reports of him taking any classes to become a coach, but he may start soon considering this response.Andrés Iniesta + Lukas Podolski = magic pic.twitter.com/wNfB38jJE4— ESPN FC (@ESPNFC) November 3, 2018What job do you think suits Andres Iniesta better after hanging up his boots as a player?
