The GIRL of THE SEA of CORTEZ is my favorite Peter Benchley novel. It's a high-spirited adventure story that speaks to my personal love of the ocean and all its fascinating creatures. The story takes you under the sea to experience the spectacular, but it also shares the threats facing our seas. While this book was written 30 years ago, Peter was prescient about mans complex relationship to the sea. This captivating story is even more relevant today than ever.

--Gregory S. Stone, Ph.D., Chief Scientist for Oceans, Conservation International



"The ocean drives the water cycle, the carbon cycle, the oxygen cycle, the nitrogen cycle … it drives the way the world works. Even if you never touch the ocean, the ocean touches you every day. And it’s only now, as we get into the 21st century, that we’re beginning to put the blue part of the planet on the balance sheet."
--Sylvia Earle


"It is our responsibility to preserve and cherish this pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known."
--Carl Sagan, Astronomer + Author


 

 

 “For most of history, man has had to fight nature to survive; in this century he is beginning to realize that, in order to survive, he must protect it.”
--Jacques Cousteau, Oceanographer + Explorer

Jaws Fest Begins in Martha's Vineyard

Jaws changed Peter's and my life and ocean awareness, but what is truly remarkable is how it seems to have transcended generations; I hear moms and dads talking about how excited they are to be here at Jaws Fest and to watch the movie with their own children.

 www.jawstribute.com

This year's festivities span 4 days, and include Universal Pictures premiering the first ever release of Jaws on Blu-Ray (Steven Spielberg has helped oversee the frame-by-frame re-mastering of the picture and sound so it looks like a new movie with plenty of great extras; the movie will be showcased on Saturday night under the stars and it will be  available on Blu-Ray in stores on August 14th).

For me this years Jaws Fest is breaking new ground with its big emphasis on shark conservation and awareness; I will be participating in several public forum discussions about the work Peter and I have done over the past 30 years and introducing great organizations that I work closely with like Shark Savers whose sole mission is to protect sharks and rays.

Discovery Channel's celebrating its 25th Anniversary and premiering a new film  called "How Jaws Changed the World" on Tuesday, August 14th. Be sure to check it out.

We are also excited that Random House released Jaws for the first time as a eReader with some wonderful bonus content.

Available from:

As Peter said, "Save the Sharks and we can save the Oceans".

Enjoy!

If you are looking for a vacuum cleaner that is more powerful, sturdier, or will last longer than a traditional home model, then a commercial vacuum cleaner is what you are looking for. These are built to last and will help to keep your floors, carpeting, and furniture in the best shape possible. Better is to click here http://jaccomvacle.aircus.com/

vacclasupp says:

When it comes to cleaning up messes and spills, traditional upright and canister vacuums can only help so much. This, of course, just isn’t very practical at all in most cases. When you have a wet dry vacuum cleaner on hand, you enjoy the convenience of fast and easy cleanup of all of your spills and messes with just one machine. Better is to click here http://vacclasupp.classtell.com/

bestvacuum says:

You want a vacuum with bags like you probably have now, or one without a bag? The newer models without bags are certainly more convenient. It's easy to see when it needs to be emptied, and there's no more fumbling with getting the bag on the hose or worrying about if the bags you have are right for your model.

Most people create messes on their own in their cars, spill things from time to time throughout the house, and more. Who wants to get out that clunky, old, plug-in vacuum and mess with unwinding the cord, finding an available outlet, and more? If your mess is small, you will have gone through all of that hassle for under a minute of cleaning time! Best to visit here: https://nikoaiodd.joomla.com/

Whether you have floor to floor carpeting, your entire home is tile or laminate flooring, or you have some other combination of flooring throughout your home, you absolutely need to have a vacuum to help make your cleaning job easier. For more details please visit here: http://smalvacum.over-blog.com/

howvacget says:

Some people worry that a bagless vacuum cleaner will not control the debris that is sucked into the vacuum, but that is not the case. In fact, you will find that you are more prone to emptying a canister than you would be to replace a bag, and because of that, you end up getting better suction and a cleaner home. For more details please visit here: http://howvacget.simplesite.com/

vacuumtips says:

Steam cleaning your home is absolutely something that you will want to do several times a year, and if you have kids or pets, you may want to do it even more frequently. The fact is that dirt, dust, and grime just get ground into your floors and even into your furnishings, too, over time. For more details please visit here: http://www.vacuumavail.sitew.us/

vagauiclan says:

There was a time when a canister vacuum cleaner was the default that almost everyone used. But as upright vacuums became lighter and more affordable, people started looking down on canisters as things that were too cumbersome and difficult to work with. http://vagauiclan.snack.ws/

If you have ever watched the cleaning crew in action in a public venue like a hotel, a convention center, a department store, or some other such large commercial place of business, you no doubt have seen a backpack vacuum cleaner in action. When many people see these unique cleaning machines in action, they are envious and may have wished they had one of those for their own house. https://backvacccle.puzl.com/

vacuuhome says:

An upright vacuum cleaner is generally a corded machine that is loaded with great attachments and tools that make cleaning everything from different flooring surfaces to ceiling fans and ceiling corners a breeze. There are also smaller varieties of these upright machines that are cordless, and you can find them in both bagless and bagged varieties. http://vacuuhome.webgarden.com/
