” Jennifer landed this 120-pound yellowfin tuna off Panama in May 2014. She caught the tuna on a Black Hole Cape Cod special 250g jigging rod and Avet MXL Raptor reel with 65-pound Fins braid. Panama yellowfins can amass so thick around bait schools that it’s possible to motor right into the school and watch tunas fly through the air next to the boat.”
” Cynthia landed this nice little tunny on a recent trip. The little tunny is often confused with similar species, mostly because it has different nicknames in different regions and looks like other tunalike fish. Find out the difference between a tuna and a bonito.”

” These spooky apocalyptic images are not a scene from “Walking Dead”, they were actually taken at one of the biggest car cemeteries in the world – the Chatillion Car Graveyard, Belgium.
According to an urban legend these cars were left behind by US soldiers from World War II, who could not ship them back to the US so they decided to hide them in a forest until they could come back and retrieve them. The locals disagree and say that it’s simply an old car dump of vehicles made after the WWII.
At one point there were four car graveyards in Chatillon with as many as 500 retro vehicles. Unfortunately, most of the cars were stolen or removed by the locals and due to environmental issues the whole graveyards was cleared in 2010.”

” While small “drones” have raised controversy in the US, they’ve made a lasting contribution to the world of photography. A light camera and a quadcopter can capture beautiful aerial shots that might once have been difficult or impossible for most photographers. Last year, Dronestagram launched as a place for both amateurs and professionals to upload their work.”
” This year, it opened a contest to find the very best ones. The winners, picked with the help of users and National Geographic, represent the spectrum of drone photography, from high-flying nature shots to athletic spectacles to people who are just wondering what’s up there looking at them. “Went back to my home town in the Philippines. I was flying in the park one Sunday morning when suddenly people had become really interested,” writes Jericsaniel, who captured the second-place photograph above. “Looking at this picture, I realized how happy my drone makes these people.” And the winning photographer, who deserves every bit of that accolade, has actually managed to make a drone fly with the eagles.”

” A Brazilian police officer was filmed firing what appear to be live rounds at anti-World Cup protesters this weekend.”
” The incident was captured by the Associated Press close to Rio de Janeiro’s Maracana stadium during the Argentina vs Bosnia-Herzegovina match on Sunday.
The scenes also saw a man in plain clothes who identified himself as a police officer fire two shots into the air. He continued firing as he was driven away. The news agency was not able to confirm his identity.
Some residents have turned to artistic protest – daubing walls with anti-Fifa graffiti.
These powerful images show a nation discontent with corruption, greed and injustice. “

” Every summer, millions of us venture out into the sun in hopes of a perfect, fun-filled day without any negative consequences. The problem is, as much joy as the sun giveth, it can also taketh away. The worst sunburns ever are what happens when the sun takes away that joy, but there is a silver lining. Sometimes, awful sunburns are pretty darn funny, and laughing at the pain is the only way to get through it.”
