I am today’s host, Rob Foos. Here are today’s stories: Refugio Oil Spill Was Like a Firehose Without a Nozzle http://theterramarproject.org/thedailycatch/refugio-oil-spill-was-like-a-firehose-without-a-nozzle/ Firefighters investigating a reported petroleum stench at a California beach last month didn't take long to find a spill -- oil was spreading across the sand and into the surf. Tracing the source, they found crude gushing from a bluff like a fire hose "without a nozzle," records show. But critical time would elapse before the operator of a nearby pipeline confirmed that it had ruptured and spewed the oil. Singapore Launches Marine Conservation Action Plan to Protect Biodiversity http://theterramarproject.org/thedailycatch/singapore-launches-marine-conservation-action-plan-to-protect-biodiversity/ Under the plan, the National Parks Board will pilot initiatives to get more Singaporeans interested in marine life. Two dive trails, complete with 20 underwater signboards that serve as activity stations and markers, will be open for approved dive operators to take scuba divers on dive trips in September 2015. Florida Military Surf Club Helps Veterans Move On http://theterramarproject.org/thedailycatch/florida-military-surf-club-helps-veterans-move-on/ Seven veterans trekked over the sand toward the waiting waves. The men — some officers, others enlisted— are all part of a newly formed group called the Florida Military Surf Club. Most are Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and some used to be active duty before coming to the organization they now all call home: the Florida National Guard. Solar Impulse Makes Second Attempt to Cross the Pacific Ocean http://theterramarproject.org/thedailycatch/solar-impulse-makes-second-attempt-to-cross-pacific-ocean/ Solar Impulse, a solar-powered plane, has passed the "point of no return" in its second bid at making a record-breaking flight across the Pacific Ocean. The Necessary Renewal http://theterramarproject.org/thedailycatch/the-necessary-renewal/ In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill will assert that the time has come to gather teachers and administrators together to take the necessary steps to bring ocean programs into the classroom--not just once but on a continuing basis.
