Superman sinks slowly to the bottom of the ocean, knocked out cold. The light of a boom tube reflex over the water, barely moving it's rays through the cold murky water. A greenish suite with a room emerges from the boom tube, plashing into the water at the speed of sound and swimming towards Superman with a strange pill like container the size of a watermelon. The suited man or robot opens the capsule as he gets overhead of Superman. This black life like ooze slithers its way out of the can and towards Superman, visually attaching itself to the man of steal covering him up with this black suit with white eyes. A mouth appears from the head of what used to be Superman with a loud growl bubbling through the water and what was Superman's arm now a large clawed goo stretches out like a spider attacking it's prey and shoots through the body of the Dover. Now obvious it was another Lex-bot as sparks shot out of his back when Superman's black gooey hand shot through the body like knife through butter. Now with lightning speed the host that controls Superman has him shoot out of the water like a torpedo, straight into the sky. Now heading towards our hero on top of the roof.
The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management and its partners will kick off the Second Annual Rhode Island Quahog Week with a special launch event later this month. Quahog Week, which runs March 20 – 25, highlights the importance of Rhode Island’s wild harvest shellfish to the state’s history, traditions, and economy. As part of the week, participating restaurants and markets will feature quahog-inspired menu items and deals, and Quahog Week partners will hold special events.
WHERE: Save The Bay, 100 Save The Bay Drive, Providence, Rhode Island
WHEN: Monday, March 20, 2017, 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
At the launch event, local shellfishermen will compete in a quahog shucking contest and educate guests on their profession. Guests will also enjoy a raw bar and creative preparations of the quahog, courtesy of participating restaurants. A short speaking program is also planned. The event is free, but space is limited. RSVP to Emily Lynch at Emily.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rhode Island is known for its food and diverse food cultures. The state’s booming local food sector supports more than 60,000 jobs and continues to attract and inspire the imagination of entrepreneurs and innovators. The local fishing industry has been, and continues to be, a vital part of the equation. Last year, more than 100 million pounds of seafood arrived to a local port – with an export value over $1 billion. And more than 28 million quahogs (off-the-boat value of $5.5 million) were harvested from Narragansett Bay and local coastal waters. To support continued industry growth, the State, along with its partners, developed the RI Seafood brand to uniquely identify local seafood in the marketplace and to provide a brand under which local seafood events and activities can take place.
Quahogging has a rich history locally, supporting the livelihoods of hundreds of fishermen year-round as well as serving as a treasured pastime for Rhode Island families. Quahog Week will highlight this history and value through several other planned events, including a special quahog-inspired Eating with the Ecosystem School of Fish Workshop on March 20 and the Official Beer of the Clam event on Saturday, March 25 at the new headquarters of Narragansett Beer in Pawtucket.

-All of my life I've been told to be yourself, be the black sheep. This however has always put me on the radar of bullies and jerks, even today. It's my fault, after all, for not following the way of mother nature. In her world the one that sticks out from the Herd, pack or school is always left behind and eventually picked off by the apex predator. You can survive though and not by falling behind, not by joining the predators on the hunt, no. Look for the group that sticks out and return to the way of life be apart of that Herd. A group will always take down that predator, and the right group will pick you up when you fall.
