Previously published as "What Happened to Little League Baseball in the Inner City?" Crime in inner-city Chicago is always the hot topic at the start of every news segment daily, and one would be hard-pressed to recall anything positive reported in the Black community. Baseball used to thrive in Chicago, but today shootings in the park take place more than boys swinging baseball bats.
The Bike Ride
Price: Free! Words: 3,110. Language: English. Published: August 22, 2017. Categories: Essay » Literature, Nonfiction » Sports & outdoor recreation » Bicycling
The Bike Ride is a humorous account of a three day cycle ride across the south of England which due to negligible planning, an abysmal lack of preparation and poor eyesight was considerably more taxing than it needed to be. With a mistake waiting to be made around every tortuous bend and a near beating on the way, this essay can best be described as the diary of an incompetent cyclist.

How aggressive are damselfish, pound for pound? As it turns out, divers invading their space is not the only thing damselfish exhibit aggression over. I don’t blame them for defending their territory when I’m trying to get a shot. That’s common, and can be comical. The species in our waters vary in size, color and behavior. There is an excellent, detailed chapter on all the damselfish species.

The world's first millionaire author would trade every dollar if he could have played just one season of professional hardball. Here are some baseball tales, all true but the last one.

Spadefish are the only species of its family that reside in the Western Atlantic. In the Pacific there are at least six species, where they are commonly known as batfish. While they are common in the Keys, in other parts of the Caribbean they are not as prevalent. I’ve seen schools numbering in the hundreds from Molasses up to Carysfort. One of the largest schools I’ve seen was on Deep French.

Classified as a “nuclear” species, goatfish truly play a leadership role. Other species are attracted to the substratum-disturbing foraging.

While many of the follower species eat the same food, the goatfish don’t seem to mind.

Puffers are a group of fish I like to shoot, especially the big ones. They have a shy, jovial personality. At least they always look like they are smiling. Puffers are related to boxfish, and are also toxic, but in a different way. I found references to two toxins, tetrodotoxin (TTX) and saxitoxin (STX), which are nerve agents. They are chemically distinct, but act on the nervous system similarly.

As I stood on the boat with my morning coffee and watched the people pile in the boats and head out to the whale sharks, my immediate reaction was “we are in a whale shark theme park”. I believe it’s become more about the peso than the whale shark. I can’t blame them for developing the tourism business, but is there a balance that can be reached? This has spawned a great deal of controversy.

While the majority of observations during the day are while eels are resting or on a cleaning station, a few times I have seen an eel coupled with a grouper. The first time I saw it was on the Winch Hole. A graysby came to a stop on a pile of rubble, and a goldentail came out from its lair. At first they just sort of looked at each other, then came cheek to cheek, touched, and took off together.
