Snooki Reveals She's "Retiring" From Jersey Shore

  Snooki Reveals She's Snooki has announced that she'll be retiring from MTV's Jersey Shore. Find out her reason for leaving the reality series here!The Jersey Shore star, who has been a part of the MTV reality series since the show's premiere in 2009, is ready to step away. During a new episode of her It's Happening with Snooki & Joeypodcast, posted Friday, Snooki announced that she's retiring from Jersey Shore.

It might not have rivaled the "get out of the water" scene of "Jaws," but swimmers at Fish Hoek Beach in Cape Town, South Africa, headed for the beach in a hurry, some faster than others, when the shark siren blared. And they appeared to reach shore just in time.

Aly Ison captured video of the moment after Shark Spotters sounded the alarm and moments later also recorded footage of the actual shark close to shore.

"When the shark alarm goes off and you actually see the shark," Ison wrote on Facebook. "The Shark Spotters do an amazing job spotting the sharks in the bay. This one appears to be a bronze whaler."

The Shark Spotters confirmed it was, indeed, a bronze whaler, a.k.a. a copper shark, according to The South African.

Experts puzzled as 10-foot great white shark stays a month in one spot off East Coast

  Experts puzzled as 10-foot great white shark stays a month in one spot off East Coast CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Great white sharks are known for racing past the Mid-Atlantic states to get someplace else, so experts pay attention in rare cases when one not only stops, but stays put. That's happening now along the Virginia-North Carolina border with a 10-foot, 3-inch male tracked by OCEARCH. "It's interesting watching white shark Shaw since unlike other sharks on the Tracker, he has been hanging out off the Virginia coast for over a month,” OCEARCH posted Tuesday on Facebook.“The other sharks breezed past, only making a quick stop on their way south. What do you suppose he likes so much there?”OCEARCH offered no ideas in the post.

Fish Hoek Beach is about a mile long and is protected from currents and strong surf as it sits within False Bay. Shark Spotters are often on duty and when they sound the alarm, the locals know the drill, especially considering there were fatal shark attacks in this bay in 2004 and 2011.

Usually when a shark is spotted, officials can deploy exclusion barriers to protect the swimmers in the bay, but "due to fishing activity in Fish Hoek corner" they couldn't be activated, The South African reported.
