“I am deathly afraid of sharks,” Shatner told the show’s host, Josh Gates. “I really am.”

So to ease the Star Trek actor into things, Gates started by taking Shatner through a couple of relatively safe visits with hammerhead and reef sharks, neither of which are known to eat or attack humans. But those were just the appetizer courses, the main course was swimming with potentially deadly tiger sharks, and hoping not to become the main course.

With Gates and a team of experts at his side, Shatner came face-to-face with various tiger sharks while under water, some as big as 15 feet long. And while there were a couple tense moments trying to predict when and where the sharks would swim next, Shatner seemed to genuinely love the experience.

“They’re so beautiful, they’re unlike anything I’ve ever seen,” he said.

And despite the danger involved, viewers on Twitter loved seeing Shatner in the water with the sharks, saying things like, “William Shatner is one of the greatest icons and greatest human beings, and to see him on Shark Week is beyond a treat. Thank you sir.”

And as many viewers pointed out, perhaps what’s most impressive is that Shatner went on this mission at the age of 90, with comments like “William Shatner is the bravest 90-year-old alive.”

“Unbelievable. One of the great moments of my life,” Shatner said. And when asked by Gates if he conquered his fear, Shatner responded; “I have.”

Shark Week continues all this week on Discovery.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom can’t put his Democratic Party affiliation on the ballot voters see when they decide whether to remove him, a judge ruled Monday. Newsom’s campaign missed a deadline to submit his affiliation to California Secretary of State Shirley Weber for the Sept. 14 recall election. Newsom’s campaign said it was inadvertent and asked Weber, who was appointed by Newsom, to allow the affiliation to appear.

Wildfires that torched homes and forced thousands to evacuate burned across 10 parched Western states on Tuesday, and the largest, in Oregon, threatened California's power supply. Nearly 60 wildfires tore through bone-dry timber and brush from Alaska to Wyoming, according to the National Interagency Fire Center. Arizona, Idaho and Montana accounted for more than half of the large active fires.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -A U.S. judge on Monday appeared likely to reprimand Sidney Powell, a former campaign lawyer for Donald Trump, and other attorneys over a lawsuit they filed in Michigan seeking to overturn Democratic President Joe Biden's election victory. U.S. District Judge Linda Parker in Detroit suggested the pro-Trump lawyers should have investigated the Republican former president's voter fraud claims more carefully before suing. Parker held the hearing to determine whether Powell, Lin Wood and other pro-Trump lawyers should be disciplined for a lawsuit they filed last November that made baseless claims of widespread voter fraud in the U.S. presidential election in Michigan.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -One of the Haitian-American men arrested on suspicion of taking part in the assassination of Haiti's president last week had been an informant to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, a DEA official said on Monday. Haitian authorities last week arrested two Haitian-American men, Joseph Vincent, 55, and James Solages, 35, and charged them with joining 26 Colombians in the fatal attack on Haitian President Jovenel Moise.

The bodies of an unusually large number of migrants who died in Arizona's borderlands are being recovered this summer amid record temperatures in the sun-scorched desert and rugged mountains. An increase in migrant deaths also has been noted in Texas, and rescues are up throughout the border with Mexico. The nonprofit group Humane Borders, which maps the recoveries of bodies in Arizona using data from the Pima County Medical Examiner's Office in Tucson, said 43 sets of human remains were found in the state's border region last month — the hottest June on record for Phoenix.

When the body of 4-year-old Emma Guara was pulled from the rubble of last month's Florida condominium collapse, she was wearing the silver necklace her mother recently gave her, the pendant shaped like half a heart and inscribed “Little Sis.” When firefighters found her 11-year-old sister, Lucia Guara, she was not wearing her near-matching necklace, the pendant shaped like the other half of the heart and inscribed “Big Sis.” Lucia had developed an allergic reaction and had temporarily stopped wearing hers, said their aunt, Digna Rodriguez.

Gen Z (ages 18-24) and millennials (ages 25-40) are the worst tippers of all age demographics, according to a new study published by CreditCards.com. The study found that “Zoomers” and millennials are the least likely to always tip for services compared to their elders.

"Recovery at this point is yielding human remains" as opposed to bodies, making identifying victims more difficult, Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said.

President Joe Biden on Friday fired Social Security Administration Commissioner Andrew Saul, a Trump appointee who had drawn criticism from Democrats and advocacy groups for seeking to restrict benefits and taking a staunch anti-union stance in dealing with the labor groups that represent the agency’s 60,000 employees. Saul, whose six-year term was set to end in January 2025, was reportedly fired after refusing to a White House request to resign. Deputy Commissioner David Black, also appointed b

St. Louis Aquarium at Union Station celebrates Shark Week with special activities

KTVI Fox 2 St. Louis 13 July, 2021 - 06:44am

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Aquarium at Union Station is celebrating Shark Week through July 18 with some new activities.

“I think when working with large predators like sharks, it’s all about learning about these apex predators and developing a respect for them, and understanding they aren’t the crazy attack animals they’re portrayed to be,” executive director of the St. Louis Aquarium at Union Station Tami Brown said. “It’s important to develop a respect for these guys and their natural history.”

Visitors can touch Bamboo Sharks in the touch pool and see other shark species in Shark Canyon.

Guests who purchase the behind-the-scenes tour can cross the rope bridge that stretches across Shark Canyon.

Every day during the week, guests can touch replicas of different shark teeth and jaws. Those include Blacknose Sharks, Zebra Sharks, Nurse Sharks, and Sandbar or Brown Sharks.

Below is a list of the types of sharks that swim in the aquarium’s Shark Canyon.
