Did you know that bull sharks have been sighted nearly 2000 miles from the ocean in fresh water lakes and rivers like the Amazon? They are able to survive due to their unique ability to self regulate the amount of salt stored in their body. Check out the information below for a more detailed description of this process!
In sharks, the normal mechanism of osmoregulation in a marine (salt) environment is the high concentration of urea and other biological solvents in their blood and the removal of excess salt from their bloodstream through urine. The former allows them to absorb water from their marine surroundings, while the latter rids them of the salt they continually absorb. These tasks are primarily controlled by the kidneys.
In most sharks, these adaptations cannot be changed. If they are put into a freshwater environment, they will absorb too much water relative to their concentration of bodily solvents and lose too much salt to stay alive. In other words, most sharks cannot survive in fresh water because they are not capable of adapting to it.
Bull sharks are unusual because they can adapt readily to fresh water because they can adapt their process of osmogregulation. The kidneys of bull sharks, (and to a lesser extent several other types of sharks) can be gradually adjusted to suit the salinity of the water they are in. When moved gradually into freshwater (perhaps by migrating from the ocean, to an estuary, and then upriver), bull sharks' kidney's remove less salt and more urea from the bloodstream through urination, essentially reversing the normal marine shark method of osmoregulation. This adaptation allows bull sharks to live entirely in estuaries or freshwater.

E começa a realização de um sonho, daqueles que a gente sonha desde criança e vai encostando e ajeitando ele nos cantinhos mais escondidos do coração. A vida vai passando e eles estão lá, ficando empoeirados, mas nunca apagados.
Hoje se completa um ano desde que peguei um desses sonhos e dei aquela assoprada e sacudida na poeira e falei: “Chegou a tua vez, bicho! Prepara o uniforme pois o treino acabou! Bora pro campo pq agora é à vera!!” Eu tenho muito que agradecer a Deus e às entidades por me ajudarem e me guiarem nos momentos de desespero em que eu achava que ia dar tudo errado e também à três pessoas que embarcaram nessa loucura: @tozzafla, @mariainez.19 e @hevelynbsb.
Antes que isso aqui vire um textão chatão de Facebook, eu só quero dizer muito obrigada por vocês estarem comigo. Esse momento significa demais pra mim é há momentos em que eu paro e me belisco (é sério!) pra saber se é verdade mesmo ou se eu vou acordar a qualquer minuto.
Então, que venham esses 10 dias de sonho em que eu vou estar BEM ACORDADA e enchendo o saco de todo mundo com isso! 😂😍❤️ .
Let’s sail away!! 🛳❤️⚓️🍀✨🙏🏽🌻

I had a dream last night and when I opened my eyes, your shoulder blade - your spine, were shorelines in the moonlight.

There will always be a moon - pulling me away from you.

“Lately I've had the occasion to fly a lot around the country, preaching here and there. Even though I'm here on Sundays, it seems like my weeks have been spent in airports, sometimes for a long time, as I've had mechanical delays and things like that. And I've become very much aware of a book that I knew was out there but I see literally all over all the airports that I've been in, in the last month or so, it has been labeled, at least, the best selling religious book of the time. The title of it is Your Best Life Now. I have seen stacks and stacks and stacks of those books everywhere I've gone.
Out of curiosity, I want to know what's in the book and so I found this on page 5, “God wants this to be the best time of your life.” On another page it says, “Happy, successful, fulfilled individuals have learned how to live their best life now. On another page it says, “As you put the principles found in these pages to work today, you will begin living your best life now.” And that is absolutely true if you're not a Christian. This is it, you better get the book because your next life is going to be infinitely worse than this one.
This is your best life now. In fact, it's your only life because in the world to come, you will only exist in a perpetual state of dying with no hope, no satisfaction, no meaning, no joy and no future and no relief from eternal suffering. That's the worst life possible. And this is your best life, if your next life is in hell.
But, on the other hand, if you are a child of God and your sins are forgiven and you've come to embrace Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, this is not even close to your best life. You can't even comprehend what your best life looks like because “Eye hasn't seen, nor has ear heard the things that God has prepared for them that love Him.” ~ John MacArthur, ‘Your Best Life: Now or Later?’ sermon excerpt
