Drone’s Eye View: AWESOME!!!!!
Australia takes it’s sharks very seriously. Shark detecting drones are being trialled on beaches in NSW as a part of the NSW Government’s $16 million Shark Management Strategy.
The film JAWS has given sharks a bad rap. Here are the STATS:
Deaths by shark attack in the world:
Australia About 2 a year
USA 1 every 2 years
UK None EVER
CANADA None EVER
More deaths occur due to falling off chairs in Australia. Quad bikes are deadly anywhere.

Full Stats and references here.

Meanwhile, you see a shark fin. You can swim BUT what distance do you need to be from the shark to make it to the beach.

You will find some interesting maths here .

Hello Little Munchins,
,………………………………………….. …………………………….
Maths can save your life. How? Read on.
,………………………………………….. …………………………….
Sadly, a car has been used as a weapon again in my city, Melbourne.
,………………………………………….. …………………………….
When talking to science types about the Maths of a Car Used as a Weapon they say ‘Yeah! Right! As if you are going to stand around doing the maths when a car is heading towards you!!!!.’ ……………………
NO!………………………………………….. ……..
You don’t do the maths in a crisis. You do it before hand. And it will change your view of car safety for all time.
METRIC:
If you are 9 m away from a car travelling at 60 kph, you DO NOT have time to move out of the way.
Some survival tips at the above link.

USA UNITS:
If you are 28 ft away from a car travelling at 35 mph you do not have time to move out of the way.
Some survival tips at the above link.
Stay safe in 2018.
Cheers
