Amazing Natural Events Salmon Bear

Source: Salmon Guy
Amazing Natural Events Salmon Bear Source: Salmon Guy An annual staple in British Columbia, the great salmon rush is the name given to the event where massive amounts of salmon swim toward the upper reaches of rivers, where they spawn on gravel beds. After spawning, all Pacific (and most Atlantic) salmon die, and thus the salmon cycle begins again. Aside from the public spectacle the run generates, the salmon run also brings out grizzly bears, bald eagles and sport fishermen, all ready to take their share of the rosy-colored fish.

on the planet). By the age of four he was already able to read in Japanese, Korean, German,
and English. At his fifth birthday, he solved complicated differential and integral calculus
problems. Later, on Japanese television, he demonstrated his proficiency in Chinese,
Spanish, Vietnamese, Tagalog, German, English, Japanese, and Korean. Kim was listed in the
Guinness Book of World Records under “Highest IQ”; the book estimated the boy’s score at
over 210.
Kim was a guest student of physics at Hanyang University from the age of 3 until he was 6.
At the age of 7 he was invited to America by NASA. He finished his university studies, eventually
getting a Ph.D. in physics at Colorado State University before he was 15. In 1974, during his
university studies, he began his research work at NASA and continued this work until his return
to Korea in 1978 where he decided to switch from physics to civil engineering and eventually
received a doctorate in that field. Kim was offered the chance to study at the most prestigious
universities in Korea , but instead chose to attend a provincial university. As of 2007 he also

young people throughout the world. He has met with Bill Clinton and Mikhail Gorbachev and spoke in front of the UN. For these
