The magnificent prehistoric great white shark is the largest of all predatory fish in the world.

A descendant of early shark species from approximately 400 million years ago, prior to the dinosaur age, the great white shark is believed to have evolved 16-20 million years ago.

The great white can grow up 15-to-20 feet in length, and weigh as much as 5,000 pounds, according to National Geographic.

Its streamlined body and powerful tail allow the great white to travel at remarkable speeds of up to 15 miles an hour.

Celebrating Fourth of July is one of America’s most cherished traditions.

While paying tribute to the signing of the Declaration of Independence by our Founding Fathers on July 4, 1776, those who declared freedom from English oppression to establish the United States of America, family and friends will gather together in celebration with barbecues, parties, picnics and other forms of revelry.

For the busy hostess or host, it can be challenging to find time to prepare crowd-pleasing fare which also encourages good health.

The following Fourth of July recipes are extremely healthful, and have red, white and blue ingredients and colors which also pay homage to our nation’s Old Glory.

Helen Keller was a deaf-blind American woman whose courageous journey began on June 27, 1880, and who continued to inspire the world until her death at the age of 87.

Born with normal hearing and sight, at 19 months she suffered an illness of “acute congestion of the stomach and brain” that was believed to have been the cause of her lifelong deafness and blindness, according to Wikipedia.

The exact nature of her illness is not known, though it has been speculated that she suffered from a form of meningitis or possibly scarlet fever.
