The Big White _HOT_
Great white sharks are decreasing in numbers and are rare due to years of being hunted by man for fins and teeth, and often as a trophy for sport fishing. The white shark is often caught as bycatch by commercial fisheries and can also become entangled in meshes that protect beaches.

WWF supports research and monitoring of white sharks as they migrate to and from the Gulf of California. Sharks are tagged and the movements are tracked by satellite. This information on their behavior will help with a management plan for the protected area where they are found (Guadalupe Island Biosphere Reserve), such as how to protect them from bycatch and to regulate tourism.

On the warm, cloudy morning of December 16, 1907, President Theodore Roosevelt's "Great White Fleet," a force of sixteen battleships bristling with guns and painted sparkling white, steam out of Hampton Roads, Virginia to begin its 43,000-mile, 14-month circumnavigation of the globe "to demonstrate to the world America's naval prowess." The four-mile-long armada's world tour included 20 port calls on six continents, and is widely considered one of the greatest peacetime achievements of the U.S. Navy. Read more about it!
For many Elden Ring players, starting a new game by killing the dormant white dragon Greyoll of Caelid for easy runes seems essential. Because the giant dragon does not defend itself, it may at first seem like there aren't too many better methods for a newbie Tarnished to quickly gain tons of runes. However, simply running up and slaughtering this giant dragon without considering its lore or the consequences of Greyoll's death can take away from the experience of the game.
Part of understanding who Elden Ring's giant white dragon is involves facing it in battle. Found in the northeastern section of Caelid, the enormous white beast lays around while five, smaller dragons defend it. Defeating these five dragons will result in the death of the larger one, but players have found that they can sneak behind them all and simply kill the giant white dragon instead for an easy rune farm in Elden Ring's early game. Doing so unlocks its legendary incantation at the Cathedral of Dragon Communion, which in turn unlocks the secret of its identity.
The giant white sleeping dragon of Caelid is Greyoll, the mother of all dragons in the Elden Ring universe, according to the description of "Greyoll's Roar." Greyoll is an important figure in the history of the Lands Between, which was once ruled by dragons before the reign of Queen Marika and Lord Godfrey.
Killing Greyoll is thus akin to destroying a beloved monument; sure, the white dragon may lay dormant and seems to hold no true power anymore, but destroying a sacred entity for the sake of greed and bloodlust seems needlessly evil - especially when there are better rune farms in Caelid. Take a look at just how easy (and depressing) killing Greyoll this way actually is in this YouTube video from Fidel Nacho:
Players who don't care about lore and are just looking for the biggest rune gain possible from the giant white dragon in Caelid should remember to equip the Gold Scarab and consume a Gold-Pickled Fowl Foot before Greyoll dies!
Besides, killing Greyoll through the exploit nets fewer runes than returning to Caelid when one is at a high enough level to face her offspring. Indeed, there are many other more lucrative and repeatable rune farming methods to be found in the Lands Between. Relying on the quick 50,000-rune drop from Elden Ring's giant white dragon is thus not only immoral but inefficient - and it will cause players to miss out on a great battle.
The "Great White Fleet" sent around the world by President Theodore Roosevelt from 16 December 1907 to 22 February 1909 consisted of sixteen new battleships of the Atlantic Fleet. The battleships were painted white except for gilded scrollwork on their bows. The Atlantic Fleet battleships only later came to be known as the "Great White Fleet."The fourteen-month long voyage was a grand pageant of American sea power. The squadrons were manned by 14,000 sailors. They covered some 43,000 miles and made twenty port calls on six continents.The battleships were accompanied during the first leg of their voyage by a "Torpedo Flotilla" of six early destroyers, as well as by several auxiliary ships. The destroyers and their tender did not actually steam in company with the battleships, but followed their own itinerary from Hampton Roads to San Francisco. Two battleships were detached from the fleet at San Francisco, and two others substituted.
Noted for its formidable size, the great white shark is hard to miss. This species is named for its white underside and gray upper body (in shades of brown or blue), giving it an overall mottled appearance. The darker shade of its back blends with the sea from above; in contrast, it displays a slight silhouette against sunlight from below.
The biggest great white sharks are found in almost all coastal and offshore waters with temperatures between 12 and 24 C (53.6 and 75.2F). They can live in both sub-tropical and temperate waters and are also known to move closer to the shores during the spring and summer seasons, making April and October the months of highest shark activity.
Florida waters are home to much marine wildlife. From the bull shark and dolphins to a variety of turtles, this coastline has a vast array of creatures both large and small but nothing can compare to the largest shark found in these waters, the great white.
The largest great white shark in the world ever documented in history is a female shark named Deep Blue, in reference to her majestic beauty, estimated to be about 5,000 pounds (2.5 tons) and nearly 20 ft long. When she was discovered, she was heavily pregnant, which contributed to her enormous size. Researchers believe that Deep Blue is about 50 years old and is still not yet done growing. So she is expected to live at least another 25-30 years!
The megalodon has also been described as having a single tooth the same size as a human hand and large jaws that could easily fit a whole person. Unlike the great white shark which attacks prey from its soft underside, it uses its strong jaws to break through the chest and puncture the heart and lungs of its prey.
By Lenore Skenazy . . . White van hysteria has hit a new high, with the Mayor of Baltimore warning his citizens not to even PARK near a white van. People in at least one of these vehicles, he said, are coming to sex traffic young women and sell their body parts.
The big white balls on top of cruise ships are Radomes. A Radome is made up of two parts, a Radar and a Dome, hence the name Ra-dome. The dome covers the radar equipment protecting it from the weather and hiding it from guests. A radome can also include satelitte equipment.
Radomes are usually white because white is the best color for keeping the contents of the Radar cool. A black or darkly coloured Radome would attract heat from the sun and could cause problems for the equipment inside.
The white ball shapes on top of cruise ships are Radomes. These are a combination of a radio equipment and a dome. Cruise ships have Radomes to protect radar and satellite equipment from the weather and to improve the appearance of the equipment for guests.

Great white sharks are apex predators of the oceans. They are the largest predatory fish in the world, known for their speed and strength. On average, they reach a length of 15 feet. But some are much, much bigger.
"We also got amazing interactions of other sharks with the AUV and thanks to that information we were able to write a scientific article about white shark ambushing potential prey in deep waters for the first time."
Although Deep Blue was first discovered in 2013, she did not rise to fame until 2015, when Hoyos Padilla posted a video of Deep Blue swimming to Facebook. The video went viral and the shark became known as the biggest great white shark in the world.
Great white sharks are one of the most intriguing species to research. The elusive, and endangered species still harbour many secrets that researchers like Hoyos Padilla are trying to get to the bottom of.
Hoyos Padilla said that researchers are discovering new things about the species all the time. "We just published two very interesting papers about white sharks interacting with big squids, and a paper about social behavior in white sharks, something that nobody knew about their interactions," he said.
Hoyos Padilla said the main focus for now, is the behavior and movement patterns of juvenile white sharks in Guadalupe island, their interactions with squids, and the "presence of pregnant females with a submersible ultrasound."
Today, "Southern Man" or "Plantation Man" (as he's known locally) is painted completely white, with the aforementioned head and top hat. He appears to be a mix of liquor branding gentility: the top-hatted Johnny Walker with the white-suited Jack Daniels. 041b061a72
