Today in History
On this day in 1964, the Beatles arrived at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport to begin the band’s first American tour.

Read about how after they arrived, the press ignored their music to focus on their moptops.

PHOTO OF THE DAY
An alpha Galapagos shark goes on a morning stroll while I enjoy this majestic moment. There is a big misperception about sharks in today's society. They are a huge factor in why our ocean is still alive today. Without sharks, our ecosystem will not be able to survive. Respect the ocean because it is the shark's home and not ours!
