This is the incredible moment holidaymakers watch on as a shark swam past them just feet from the shoreline.
Local authorities hoisted up the red flag at the popular beach of Arenal d’en Castell, in Menorca, Spain, at around 1.30pm yesterday after the eight-foot fish - a tintorera or blue shark - appeared in the water.
It stayed in the area for several hours before disappearing.
Swimmers were banned from entering the water for the entire afternoon.
One tourist could be heard saying: "It’s coming. Oh my God, I think it’s dead," as it appeared in the surf.
You can't make this shit up ..... some people are not made to be criminals.
A woman who brought a Molotov cocktail to a Union City, California, preschool was unsuccessful in igniting the improvised explosive, according to police.
After her arson attempt failed on Nov. 27, 2017, she went to her backup plan: The woman pulled out the wick that was in the bottle, shattered a glass door and tossed the bottle into the preschool, surveillance video shows.
Local police released the surveillance camera footage and photos of the November incident last week after an arsonist successfully lit a damaging fire at a nearby preschool in May. Authorities hoped footage from the earlier incident might help identify an attempted arsonist in both. And it worked — at least for the Union City arson incident, police announced Thursday.
Union City resident Kristina Romo, 39, was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of attempted arson following a tip from an anonymous community member who saw the video, police said.
That tip led police to speak with Romo at her home, and soon they had enough evidence to arrest her in connection with the attempted arson, police said. Court documents obtained by the East Bay Times said Romo told authorities she believed the preschool was “hiding children under the property.”
The first incident happened just after Thanksgiving at Safari Kid, a preschool and daycare in Union City east of San Francisco Bay.
But it wasn’t until a fire broke out at another Safari Kid daycare — this location in nearby Newark — on the afternoon of May 26 that the video was released. During the major fire at the second preschool, Newark police went to help Alameda County fire officials investigate and eventually discovered it was set intentionally.
Just like the previous incident, the more recent fire occurred over a long weekend; in this case, Memorial Day. No one was at either preschool when the incidents occurred.
Now detectives are working to see if they can connect the dots between the two incidents.
“We know for sure she was involved in the Union City one,” said Lt. Steve Mendez, a spokesman for Union City police. “Newark is investigating to see if she’s involved in the other.”

In a battle between a flatworm and a harvestman, it might seem the arachnid would come out as the obvious winner.
But, it turns out the mucus-slinging sticky worms can really put up a fight.
In the forests of Brazil, where fights between the two species are a common occurrence, it’s the worms that are the aggressors, making the armored harvestmen their prey.
A new study on the interaction between the two has uncovered the remarkable tactics the worms use to subdue their prey – and the grisly ways in which harvestmen fight back.
Bodycam footage has captured Utah police begging an armed teenage robber to 'stay with us' as he bled out on the ground moments after they shot him multiple times.
The video was released on Wednesday after 19-year-old Zane James died in hospital two days after he was shot by police in Cottonwood Heights near Salt Lake City last month.
The 11-minute video starts with multiple officers arriving at the scene where an injured James was lying face-down on the ground with his arms handcuffed behind his back.
USGS captures aerial footage shows smoke from Halema'uma'u crater rim at Kilauea Volcano’s summit.
A group of murders have been caught on video chasing victims with knives just days before they killed a teenage 'like vultures' - but police still deny they have a problem with gangs.
Kyle Yule, 17, was stabbed to death outside his best friend's home in Kent.
But local police have insisted the murder - described by a judge as a 'revenge attack' - was not 'gang-related' or that there is a difficulty with gangs of youngsters rampaging with weapons in Medway towns.
Now footage has emerged showing the five youths convicted of murder chasing men with knives and belts.
A trial heard how Mr Yule was affiliated with 'G10' in Gillingham, while the defendants were part of 'C4' in Chatham and all had 'tags' or nicknames.
Both groups are described as gangs in a Medway Council report on tackling gang violence.
With tensions still high between Israel and Iran, a new supersonic air-to-surface missile designed for the annihilation of high-quality targets has been developed by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) and Israel Military Industry Systems (IMI).
Dubbed “The Rampage” after a popular video-game, it is an accurate supersonic, long-range air-to-ground assault missile with a warhead, rocket engine and advanced navigation suit which allows for precision targeting at a very low mission cost compared to existing solutions.
Norwegian state broadcaster NRK announced this week that President Trump is now officially in the running for the Nobel Peace Prize after his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un Tuesday.
Norwegian lawmakers Christian Tybring-Gjedde and Per-Willy Amundsen of the country’s Progress Party – similar to the Republican Party in the U.S. – nominated the president this week for the 2019 prize.
The Norwegian politicians pointed to the recent summit as the reason for the nomination, according to a joint statement fed through Google translate.
“Through his untraditional style, President Trump has helped us see a breakthrough in relations with North Korea. The meeting in Singapore, June 12, 2018 between Trump and the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is a preliminary highlight. In the joint statement, the two heads of state agreed that North Korea should work for total nuclear disarmament and that the countries should build a lasting and solid peace regime on the Korean peninsula,” they wrote.
“Much work remains before deciding whether Trump’s initiative has been successful, including a verifiable nuclear disarmament in North Korea. However, awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to the president could help to support the fresh but fragile process.”
The nomination follows a letter from Republican lawmakers to the Norwegian Nobel Committee requesting consideration for Trump in light of his diplomatic breakthrough with the hermit dictator.
“What’s going on now is historical,” Amundsen said. “A process is underway to ensure world peace in the future. It’s a fragile process, but we must of course do what we can to help this process bring good results.
“I think that we can do (that) by sending a clear signal by giving Trump the peace prize.”
NPK noted complaints from Trump haters that the signed agreement between the president and Kim Jong Un isn’t specific enough, as well as previous broken promises from Pyongyang to wind down its nuclear weapons program.
But the two Norwegian parliamentarians told the news site it’s not too early to recognize Trump for his successes so far.
“It’s not a binding agreement, but it’s an initiative to visit both ways, it’s an initiative to get the disaster going on, and to curb the military exercises the US has with South Korea,” Tybring-Gjedde said, via Google translate. “As such, this is a push to Donald Trump to continue what he has already started.”
Tybring-Gjedde pointed out that Trump has already accomplished more for peace with the rouge regime than those who have tried and failed in the past.
“In this situation, Trump is obviously a man of peace. He tried to get something that others have not gotten, and when he makes it, he deserves fame,” he said.
Three children lost their mother after she was murdered.
It happened Monday morning in the Castle Point neighborhood in north St. Louis County. Porsha Owens, 28, was outside of her home when a gunman approached, according to police. He shot her and ran.
Owens’ family said she tried to get across the street to get help. Her 8-year-old son rushed to her side.
He flagged down a police officer.
“He went to hold her and he said she looked up at him and said, ‘I’m sorry. I think I'm about to die,’” said Keon King, Owens’ cousin. “She didn't have any chance. It apparently happened so quickly.”
Owens has two other children, ages three and four.
“She was a devoted mom. She loved her family,” King said.
King said the gunman may have been after Owens' car, a Dodge Charger, but he did not get it.
“Something so materialistic. It just saddens me how you can lose your life over worldly things,” King said.
While Owens’ family plans her funeral, they are hoping police find whomever killed Owens.
“We all have loved ones and if they lost someone, they would want him to come forward and bring this guy to justice,” King said. “You took a mother from her three kids.”

While much of the sports world has moved past the NBA Finals to the summer of LeBron James, Stephen Jackson isn’t quite ready to let go.
The former Golden State Warrior and NBA champion with the San Antonio Spurs lit into James Wednesday during an appearance on Fox Sports, taking him to task for quitting during the Finals and making excuses after the Cleveland Cavaliers got swept.
Stephen Jackson: LeBron James was ‘selfish’ when he hurt his hand punching a white board.
Jackson started his diatribe by calling out James for talking about his injured hand after the Cavs got swept and for injuring it in the first place by punching a white board after a brutal Game 1 loss.
“The series is over,” Jackson said. “There’s nothing you can do about it. You can’t go back and start over ’cause your hand hurts. It wasn’t a good decision by the guy you expect to carry your team.
“For him to do that, that was real selfish.”
The administration of San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, who was sharply critical of President Donald Trump after Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico last year, is reportedly being investigated for alleged corruption.
In a report from El Vocero de Puerto Rico, the FBI is investigating several suppliers in a probe launched after former procurement director Yadira Molina filed a lawsuit claiming she faced punishment for reporting illegal activities to the local comptroller.
The investigation has since grown to include several contractors, the news outlet reported, according to Epoch Times.
Carlos Osorio, a spokesman for the FBI in San Juan, told Epoch Times last October the agency received several complaints of alleged corruption in the distribution of relief goods, and that it was required to look into the matter.
“I believe this president has an agreement, uh, with Russia and with Putin, to lift the sanctions and I think the president thought it was gonna be easier than it has been for him to do that,” Waters said.
“But I think that he’s continuing to send a message to Putin that he’s with him, that he’s looking out for him, and that he’s going to get there.
“This business of wanting Putin involved in the summit is all about sanctions,” Waters declared, referring to the G7 meeting that Trump had already left.
“He’s going to advocate for the lifting of sanctions for North Korea, and guess what? Along with that, the lifting of sanctions for Russia. I truly believe that. I want us all to keep our eyes on what he’s doing, what he’s saying. And remember that I’m saying that it’s all about the president and his commitment to Putin to lift those sanctions and he’s gonna try and get it done with the summit meeting,” she said.
Moments earlier, MSNBC showed footage of Trump boarding his plane, leaving the summit Waters was referring to.
Asked to back up her “strong allegations,” Waters went further.
“Well, you know, I believe that the way Putin and Russia and the Kremlin involved themselves in our election to make sure that Trump got elected — everything that they did, including hacking into the DNC, but also the targeting that they did on social media, the way that the bought the ads, all of that, is about an agreement that they have,” she said.
“It’s not simply that he does not like the United States and he just thinks that somehow this president would be better for him. It’s about money. It’s about sanctions. It’s about Putin wanting to drill for oil,” Waters claimed.
“I know that I am talking about my opinion, but I wish that they would be paid attention to, media,” she lectured, “because I think that you have to focus more on what this attempt is to get these sanctions lifted.”
Waters, of course, dismissed Trump’s criticisms of the G7 countries, and claimed the president “has more of an alliance with the dictators and strongmen of the world.”
“He doesn’t know what he’s doing,” she declared.
What is wrong with Nancy Pelosi?

Bernie Sanders credited America's liberals with taking "fringe ideas, radical ideas, extremist ideas" and turning them into "mainstream American ideas." Sanders spoke Wednesday at the Communication Workers of America's "We the People 2018 Summit" in Washington, D.C. The former candidate for president thanked the union for its work "transforming" the country and called on the rank-and-file to "stand up and fight back" against the White House. “We are obviously in a pivotal and unprecedented moment in American history," Sanders told the crowd. "And the fights that we are waging on not just for ourselves, more importantly they offer our kids, our grandchildren, and the future of this planet. (Applause) And if anybody in this room, and I know it’s not the case here, but anybody in this country who thinks that now is the time to throw your hands up and give up, you are dead wrong; now is the time more than ever to stand up, fight back."
President Donald Trump said the U.S. would halt "war games" as a gesture of good faith in nuclear negotiations with North Korea, but his use of the phrase drew criticism as mirroring North Korean propaganda.
However, Trump used "war games" to refer to joint military exercises with South Korea long opposed by Pyongyang, and a Free Beacon video shows the term has often been used by mainstream reporters.
"We will stop the war games, which will save us a tremendous amount of money," Trump said during a press conference. "Unless and until we see the future negotiations is not going along like it should."
Trump also called the excercises "war games" in an interview with ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos, and reporters and pundits were aggrieved.
"Did you notice that Donald Trump didn't call them military exercises?" MSNBC analyst Richard Stengel asked.
"No, he called them war games," host Katy Tur replied.
"He's using the same terminology that our adversaries use," Stengel said.
"That is language from Pyongyang, not from the United States of America," CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins said.
"Do you think he understands the difference between military exercises and war games?" MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace asked.
"I don't know how any president of the United States can say that U.S. military exercises are, to use the parlance of a dictator, ‘war games,'" MSNBC analyst Malcolm Nance said.
CNN analyst John Kirby, a former State Department spokesman, took exception to Trump's remarks as well, saying "we call them exercises," and CNN's Joe Johns reported on the "issue of war games versus military exercises."

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D., Ill.) said on Wednesday during a progressive summit in Washington, D.C. that Attorney General Jeff Sessions would love to see black people "in the back of the bus again."
Gutierrez joined several Democratic members of Congress who have been floated as potential 2020 presidential candidates to speak at the "We the People" Summit where they discussed several issues, including immigration and taxes.
The Illinois Democrat concluded his speech by castigating Sessions and accusing him of wanting to "roll back the clock" on women, gays, African Americans, and the Hispanic community.
"Sessions, he'd just love for black people to be in the back of the bus again," Gutierrez said. "He'd love for women to be in the kitchen. He'd love for gay people to be in the closet again, and for me not to have a microphone to be able to speak to anybody."
He was asked about his comments later Wednesday evening on CNN's "Erin Burnett Out Front," prompting him to defend his remarks.
"I believe every last thing I said," he said.
"This is a man that, when he came before the Senate to try to become a federal judge, Coretta Scott King came forward. There were all kinds of testimony about him calling black men boys," Gutierrez said. "This is a man who is trying to strip black people and diminish their voting rights."
Gutierrez's remarks are similar to a one former Vice President Joe Biden made in August 2012 about the Republican presidential ticket putting Democrats "back in chains." Biden's comment drew a strong rebuke from people on both sides of the political aisle.
At an event in Boston, former first lady Michelle Obama appeared to criticize women voters who didn't support Hillary Clinton. CBSN's Reena Ninan explains.
Were the lights too bright? Was she on something?
Either way, the failed Democratic candidate for president recently gave a wild-eyed endorsement of a group promoting women in politics.
And in true Hillary Clinton fashion, she did it by complaining about how hard it is to be a woman in the political world.
“You know, it’s no secret that being a woman in politics can be frustrating,” she began, flashing wild eyes in the video to “Emerge California.”
“The only way to get sexism out of politics is to get more women into politics,” she declared moments later.
An initiative to divide California into three states has received enough signatures to qualify it for the November ballot, the California secretary of state's office confirmed Tuesday.
The three-states campaign, dubbed “Cal-3,” submitted more than 600,000 signatures.
Tim Draper, a billionaire Silicon Valley venture capital investor, sponsored the ballot measure to divide America’s most populous state into three jurisdictions, the Mercury News of San Jose, Calif., reported.
-- California would be made up of six mainly coastal counties, including Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and Ventura counties.
-- Northern California would include 40 counties from Santa Cruz to the Oregon border, including San Francisco and Sacramento, the state’s current capital.
-- Southern California would comprise 12 counties, including Fresno, Kern, Orange and San Diego counties.
“California government has rotted,” Draper told the Mercury News last month. “We need to empower our population to improve their government.”
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) told CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday that the reason why she wasn’t as outspoken about the treatment of illegal children during the Obama administration as she has been during the Trump administration was because she didn’t know enough about it.
Feinstein introduced a bill last week to stop the separation of illegal immigrant children and their parents as they cross the U.S. border.
“A lot of Democrats are expressing outrage about how Trump is treating undocumented immigrants. We saw this photo making the rounds on social media, Los Angeles Mayor, former Mayor Villaraigosa tweeted it out. It is actually from -- it is undocumented children in a holding cell, but it is actually from 2014, when President Obama was president,” CNN’s Jake Tapper said.
“There were a lot of things done to undocumented immigrants that the immigration -- the immigrant community was very upset about during the Obama years that Democrats didn't seem as outspoken about. What do you say to people who say, where was all this activism during the Obama years?” Tapper asked.
“I don't believe that it was nearly to the extent that it is today. And, candidly, I didn't really know enough about it at that time to focus on it. I do know enough about it now. We have had a hearing in the Judiciary Committee. We did have testimony,” Feinstein said.
“I know that at least 50 children a day are taken from their parents, and the thing is, they are taken, and no one knows what happens to them. Their parents don't know how to find them, and you have now the first person, one of the fathers, that died in jail. And I find it just inhumane, callous, and something I never thought my country would do,” she said.
“So, it is very worrisome, and we have got to stop it, and so we have written a bill. We have 31 co-sponsors. I hope we will be able to get it out of the Judiciary Committee. It has been introduced, and it would prohibit the taking of children in this manner, and then it would provide a number of criteria to remove a child, what you would have to have present,” Feinstein said.
Fears for the safety of Tommy Robinson are mounting after it was revealed that he has been moved to a heavily Muslim-populated prison in the United Kingdom and has already been on the receiving end of death threats.
Robinson was jailed last month for a “breach of the peace” while live streaming a trial involving a Muslim rape gang outside Leeds Crown Court.
He was initially held in a low security prison with a low Muslim population.
However, today it was revealed by Robinson’s manager Caolan Robertson that the activist has now been moved to another prison that has a large Muslim prison population.
Nestled between two national parks, Sequoia and Death Valley, there is a ghost town for sale. For a little under a million dollars, you could own a piece of the American West: an abandoned silver mining town founded in 1867 called Cerro Gordo.
Mental Floss reports:
Located in Owens Valley near the town of Lone Pine, the $925,000 property comes with over 300 acres of land, mineral rights, and no shortage of peace and quiet. There are 22 structures on site, including a historic hotel, bunkhouse, saloon, chapel, and museum—plus all of the artifacts that come with it.
“The site has been extremely well protected from diggers, artifact looters, and Mother Nature herself,” reads the listing, posted on a website specially created for the property that's aptly named ghosttownforsale.com. “Restoration has been undertaken on most of the buildings, and the rest are in a state of protected arrested decay.”
