Fishing Spiders (genus Dolomedes)
Spiders in the genus Dolomedes are often called dock spiders or fishing spiders. Nearly all species are semi-aquatic. Like water-striders, dock spiders are able to use the surface tension of water to speed across it. They are also capable of “diving” by climbing below the surface along vegetation - small hairs covering their body trap air bubbles that allow them to breathe.
Most species hunt aquatic or semi-aquatic insects. The spiders typically wait at the water’s edge with a couple of feet on the water’s surface, using extra-sensitive hairs on their legs to feel for vibrations carried through the surface tension like a spider web; then they dash out and ambush they prey. 
Some of the largest species of dock spider (reaching up to 3 in/7.5 cm across, toe-tip to toe-tip) are actually capable of catching small fish. They use claws at the tips of their forelegs to hook their prey and hold them while injecting them with paralyzing venom. This is the Six-spotted Fishing Spider (Dolomedes triton), found across the United States and southern Canada.photo by Mary Keim on Flickr

"

Social media was supposed to make us all aware of one another’s point of view, but it self-sorts.

People turn off anything they don’t already like and only pay attention to people who agree with them. That can be very polarizing.

"

— Margaret Atwood, when asked about twitter
