          Trik Mengaplikasikan Petroleum Jelly dalam Rutinitas Kecantikan      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Petroleum jelly sekarang sudah banyak digunakan sebagai salep, pelumas, krim, dan obat. Namun, ternyata Anda juga bisa menggunakan sebagai rutinitas kecantikan.

Dilansir dari thelist.com, Rabu (8/8/2018), berikut ini adalah beberapa trik mengaplikasikan petroleum jelly dalam rutinitas kecantikan. Penasaran?

1. Bulu mata palsu

Petroleum jelly dapat bekerja untuk melembutkan lem pada bulu mata palsu. Oleskan sedikit petroleum jelly pada kapas dan aplikasikan sepanjang garis bulu mata Anda.

Atau jika Anda tidak suka menggunakan bulu mata palsu, mengaplikasikan petroleum jelly di sepanjang garis bulu mata juga dapat menambahkan volume dan membuat bulu mata semakin berkilau. Sudah pernah coba?

2. Krim kaki

Anda yang memiliki kulit kaki kering dan bersisik, mengaplikasikan petroleum jelly ke telapak kaki sebelum tidur setiap malam dapat membantu mengatasi masalah tersebut. Setelah mengaplikasikan petroleum jelly, jangan lupa, sebelum tidur, jangan lupa menggunakan kaus kaki untuk membuat kulit kaki lebih lembut dan halus.

 

3. Membantu aroma parfum bertahan lebih lama

Mengaplikasikan sedikit petroleum jelly di pergelangan tangan dan daerah belakang telinga sebelum menggunakan parfum dapat membantu aromanya bertahan lebih lama di kulit.

4. Membuat kaki lebih bersinar

Campuran antara sedikit petroleum jelly dengan bronzer akan membuat kulit kaki Anda bersinar. Namun, jangan khawatir, kulit akan tetap terlihat alami.

5. Membantu proses pewarnaan rambut

Salah satu bahaya terbesar ketika mewarnai rambut adalah cairan kimia yang menempel di bagian atas telinga, di dahi, atau sekitar garis rambut. Mengaplikasikan petroleum jelly di sepanjang garis rambut akan menghalangi pewarna menyentuh kulit Anda.

6. Menata rambut alis yang berantakan

Ilustrasi perawatan kecantikan (iStockphoto)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Jangan pernah menggunakan air liur, gunakan petroleum jelly. Caranya adalah menggunakan Vaseline di pagi hari dengan jumlah yang secukupnya.

7. Melembapkan kutikula

Krim kutikula memang terbilang mahal. Namun, petroleum jelly memiliki kemampuan yang sama untuk melembapkan kutikula kering.

8. Membantu krim wajah dan serum mata

Setelah menggunakan serum mata dan krim wajah, dengan lembut aplikasikan sedikit petroleum jelly di atasnya. Petroleum jelly dapat mengunci kelembapan dan mencegah penguapan, meningkatkan kekuatan krim yang Anda gunakan.

Namun, pastikan Anda tidak menggunakan petroleum jelly setelah mengaplikasikan serum berbasis retinol, karena dapat menyebabkan iritasi kulit.

Bekas perdana menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak didakwa di Mahkamah Sesyen Kuala Lumpur hari ini atas tiga tuduhan menerima RM42 juta hasil daripada aktiviti haram ke dalam akaunnya empat tahun lepas daripada SRC International Sdn Bhd.

Najib didakwa menerima RM27 juta, RM5 juta dan RM10 juta hasil daripada aktiviti haram, melalui Real Time Electronic Transfer of Funds and Securities (“Rentas”) ke dalam dua akaun AmIslamic Bank Berhad miliknya bernombor 2112022011880 dan 2112022011906.

Semua kesalahan itu didakwa dilakukan di AmIslamic Bank Berhad, Bangunan AmBank Group, No. 55, Jalan Raja Chulan di Kuala Lumpur antara 26 Dis 2014 dan 10 Feb 2015.

Pendakwaan didakwa dilakukan di bawah Seksyen 4(1)(b) Akta Pencegahan Pengubahan Wang Haram, Pencegahan Pembiayaan Keganasan dan Hasil Daripada Aktiviti Haram (AMLATFPUAA) 2001 yang boleh dihukum di bawah Seksyen 4(1) akta sama.

Najib berdepan hukuman penjara maksimum 15 tahun dan denda tidak kurang daripada lima kali ganda jumlah atau nilai hasil daripada aktiviti haram, atau peralatan kesalahan itu pada masa kesalahan dilakukan atau RM5 juta atau mana yang lebih tinggi, jika sabit kesalahan.

Bagaimanapun, tiada pengakuan direkodkan daripada Najib, 65, selepas semua pertuduhan dibacakan di hadapan Hakim Azura Alwi.

Mahkamah membenarkan permohonan pendakwa raya untuk memindahkan kes ke Mahkamah Tinggi.

Pada 4 Julai lepas, Najib mengaku tidak bersalah terhadap tiga tuduhan pecah amanah (CBT) dan satu tuduhan salah guna kuasa melibatkan dana RM42 juta milik SRC International Sdn Bhd.

Najib diwakili peguam Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah sementara pendakwaan diketuai Ketua Unit Perbicaraan dan Rayuan Jabatan Peguam Negara Datuk Mohamad Hanafiah Zakaria.

          Pengorbanan besar Johari untuk Anwar      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
SUSUPAN MALAM

TERKEDU suingguh hati saya mendengar pengakuan ahli parlimen Sungai Petani Johari Abdul yang mengganggap Anwar Ibrahim sebagai abang kandungnya dan sedia melepaskan kerusi parlimen Sungai Petani untuk Anwar.

Tidak ada bahasa indah lain untuk dikalungkan kepada Johari selain terima kasih, terima kasih dan terima kasih. Kesediaan itu adalah pengorbanan tertinggi Johari kepada bosnya. Nampaknya Johari menjadi ahli parlimen PKR kedua sedia berkorban kepada Anwar kalau diminta berbuat demikian selepas ahli parlimen Selayang William Leong Yee Keen.

Kemuliaan hati Johari mengatasi daripada kemuliaan Dr Wan Aizah(?) dan anaknya Nurul Izzah sendiri yang tidak sedia mengorbankan kerusi buat Anwar. Azizah dan Nurul Izzah masing-masing menafikan bayangan mereka akan mengosongkan kerusi masing-masing untuk Anwar walaupun wakil yang munasabah melepas kerusi untuk Anwar adalah mereka.


Dan Anwar tidak seharusnya berfikir panjang untuk menerima huluran kerusi daripada Johari. Saya sependapat dengan beliau, Anwar harus berada segera dalam kabinet memandangkan suasana parlimen hari ini masih belum teratur dan wakil PH termasuk menteri tidak dapat menunjukkan persembahan menyakinkan.

Lagi pun Johari tidak rugi besar kalau dia menyerahkan kerusi itu kepada Anwar kerana beliau masih ada kerusi Dun di Kedah.

Sekiranya Anwar berada dalam parlimen sudah tentu beliau boleh membimbing ahli parlimen dari kerusinya. Kemasukan beliau dalam parlimen juga menjadikan jawatan kerusi PM tidak begitu jauh daripadanya.

Saya yakin sebagai seorang ahli politik dimana kegiatan politik merupakan penawar, Anwar akan sihat dan aktif apabila menjadi ahli parlimen nanti.

Sekali lagi kesediaan Johari untuk berkorban kepada bosnya itu satu tindakan bukan mulia tetapi bijak kerana Pengerusi Kelab Penyokong kerajaan itu dapat membaca “kebahayaan” politik PH tanpa Anwar berada dalam parlimen apa lagi dalam kerajaan.

Anwar perlu berada di tempatnya itu untuk memantau simpang siul politik Dr Mahathir dari dekat.   [wm.kl.12:23 am 09/08/18]

           Salman Khan finally opens up about Priyanka Chopra WALKING OUT of Bharat and he doesn't seem happy about it       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Salman Khan is all set to come up with his most awaited movie Bharat and we can't help but get pumped up for the same. The movie was a lot in the news because it's leading lady Priyanka Chopra suddenly decided to walk out of the film citing the reason of engagement and an impending marriage with Nick Jonas. There were rumours that Salman did not take this lightly and was pretty offended. He promptly signed Katrina Kaif but the media was abuzz with the contention that he had fallen out with PC after this incident. Things took a further interesting turn after Priyanka signed a Hollywood project with Chris Pratt after walking out of Bharat. At the Loveratri trailer launch in New Delhi, Salman opened up about this and his statement was laced with hurt and blame.

Salman Khan finally opens up about Priyanka Chopra WALKING OUT of Bharat and he doesn't seem happy about it

He said at the press conference, “I am really happy for her. Uss waqt hum ko ye pata chalta ke unhone wahan par koi bahut badi film sign ki hai aur hume thoda pehla pata chalta to hum waise bhi usko kabhi rokte nahi (If we had known then that she has signed a big Hollywood film, we wouldn’t have stopped her from leaving our film anyway). End moment pe pata chala, shooting ke 10 din pehle pata chala. Shooting shuru ho gayi thi meri, par unke schedule se 10 din pehle pata chala ki woh picture chhodna chahti hai. (We got to know at the end moment, 10 days before her shooting that she wants to leave the film). We said of course, if you don’t want to do it, don’t do it. Uss waqt kuchh alag reason diye gaye the hume (We were given another reason then..). Jo bhi reason hai, shaadi ka reason ho, ya picture ka reason ho, ya unko India main nahi kaam karna, ya mere saath nahi kaam karna, sirf Hollywood film aur TV show karna hai, woh unka reason hai. (Whatever it is, her wedding, Hollywood film or the fact that she does not want to work with me, it’s her reason.) We are really happy and supportive about her doing good work.”

Salman Khan added, “Agar yahan pe kaam nahi kare to kya hua, waha pe to who Hindustan ka naam roshan kar rahi hai. Agar Salman Khan ke saath kaam nahi karna, waha ke kisi bade hero ke saath kaam kar rahi hai to Hindustan ka naam to roshan hota hai na (If she doesn’t want to work here, there in Hollywood she is making our country proud. If she doesn’t want to work with Salman Khan, she’ll work with a top actor in Hollywood and make our country proud).”

           Amid engagement news with Nick Jonas, Priyanka Chopra says her personal life is not for public consumption       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Priyanka Chopra is in headlines every single day either for her current or upcoming projects or due to her relationship with American singer Nick Jonas. As their whirlwind romance continues to be in news, the actress says that her personal life is not for public consumption. The actress returned to India this morning to speak at a session titled 'Challenging the Status Quo & Forging New Paths' organised Jointly by FICCI Ladies Organisation (FLO) and Yes Bank.

Amid engagement news with Nick Jonas, Priyanka Chopra says her personal life is not for public consumption

The interactive session was hosted by Vir Sanghvi where Priyanka Chopra talked about various aspects of her life. Talking about her personal life and why she wants it to be protected, she said, "My personal life is not for public consumption. 90 per cent of my life is for public consumption but 10 per cent is for me. I am a girl and I have the right to keep that to myself. My family, friendship, my relationships are things I don't think I need to defend or explain it to anyone. I am not running for the Office, so I don't think I need to give explanations."

"Sometimes I laugh, sometimes I get annoyed... But mostly, I tell my publicists 'Let it be, today's news is tomorrow's trash'," Priyanka said here on Monday.

It was only in July end that the foreign media reported that after dating for over two months, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra were reportedly engaged. The 25-year-old singer proposed to Priyanka on her birthday in London. While the couple is yet to officially confirm their engagement, fans are very excited about them. Just this past weekend, Priyanka flew off to Singapore where Nick performed at Hyperplay concert organised by MTV Asia.

Meanwhile, on the work front, Priyanka Chopra recently wrapped up Hollywood flick Isn’t It Romantic alongside Adam Devine, Rebel Wilson and Liam Hemsworth. The film is scheduled for Valentine’s Day release next year. She is also starring in Shonali Bose’s tentatively titled The Sky Is Pink with Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim. Besides these two films, she has booked a leading role in Hollywood film Cowboy Ninja Viking opposite Chris Pratt.

Salman Khan had announced a few months ago that Priyanka Chopra is his leading lady for his next Bharat. Fans were psyched about the PC - Salman reunion on screen and also because Priyanka was coming back on screen in Bollywood after such a long time. But well, due to unexpected developments in Priyanka’s personal life, she had to opt out of the movie. Salman was asked by press at the Loveratri trailer launch earlier today about the same and his reply to the question was shocking as well as surprising. He said "I have not been reading the newspapers from the past few days as I have been busy with Loveratri. Once I read it, I will call you and tell you about it." He sarcastically snubbed the reporter and avoiding talking about PC.

There were reports that Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra had fallout after she opted out of Bharat. Recently Madhu Chopra spoke about the same and cleared the air calling these reports as baseless and asserted that Salman does not have a problem with Priyanka. So, if this was the case then Salman would have said positively about the Baywatch babe’s engagement with Nick Jonas. Salman has started work on Bharat and will soon fly to Malta Islands with Katrina Kaif for the shoot. He has also shot 12 promo episodes for Bigg Boss’s upcoming season and has been busy with Dus Ka Dum too. He has his hands full with work, true, but it is a little hard to believe that he has no clue about Priyanka’s engagement.

Salman Khan has produced Loveratri with Aayush Sharma in lead with newcomer Warina Hussain.

          A los booktubers del PSOE se les olvida la paridad      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
El último Plan de Fomento de la Lectura del Gobierno dura un minuto y medio: es lo que tardan en recomendar sus libros de verano siete miembros de la Ejecutiva del PSOE en un vídeo sin ningún tipo de vocación cinematográfica que estrenaron ayer. Aunque no son «millennials», ni han utilizado YouTube, se autodefinen como «booktubers», un término que la RAE todavía no recoge en su Diccionario (¿continúa la guerra entre Ejecutivo y la Academia que comenzó con el lenguaje inclusivo de la Constitución?). Abre el telón la vicepresidenta Carmen Calvo, que quizá ha descartado «El Quijote» por poco igualitario (o por denso), y prefiere los «Ensayos sobre el bien y el mal» de Amelia Valcárcel para descansar en agosto. ¿Responderá el libro a si está bien o está mal que de las once recomendaciones socialistas solo cuatro sean obras de mujeres? No lo sabemos, pues en el vídeo apenas se recitan los títulos de los libros a modo de lista de la compra. Prolifera la novela negra como entretenimiento. No hay, en cambio, ni un solo poemario en esta lista, en la que seguro que no ha intervenido Luis García Montero, flamante director del Cervantes. Patxi López, secretario de Política Federal, opta por «Total Khéops», del francés Jean-Claude Izzo, e Iratxe López e Ibán García del Blanco ofrecen títulos de Lorenzo Silva: «Lejos del corazón» y «El alquimista impaciente», respectivamente. Iratxe también recomienda a su autora favorita, Isabel Allende, con «La suma de los días», e Ibán añade «Limónov», de Emmanuel Carrère. La excentricidad se la lleva en la mochila Cristina Narbona, portavoz socialista en el Senado, con «Otra manera de vivir», de Jane Goodall. «Es una especialista en primates», comenta. También es famosa por copiar de Wikipedia sin citar, como reveló hace unos años el «Washington Post». Narbona recomienda además «La carne», de Rosa Montero. Dice que espera tener tiempo para leer los dos libros. Se nos quedaban en el tintero la prescripciones de Ander Gil (dos novelas históricas: «Memorias de Adriano» y «Capitán de mar y guerra») y Adriana Lastra («Las virtudes cotidianas», de Michael Ignatieff, y «El fuego invisible», de Javier Sierra) para completar esta lista heterogénea que no termina aquí. Según promete la web del PSOE, a partir de hoy, y de forma diaria, «un miembro de la dirección socialista desvelará cuál es su libro elegido».
          Ve la luz un cuento inédito de Ernest Hemingway      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Han pasado seis décadas desde que el gran escritor y periodista estadounidense Ernest Hemingway se suicidara a punta de fusil en 1961, pero sigue sorprendiendo a sus más fieles lectores. Hace unos meses conocíamos el primer relato de ficción escrito por el autor con apenas 10 años, y ahora nos sorprende con la publicación de un cuento inédito. La revista estadounidense «The Strand Magazine» ha sido la encargada de divulgar «A Room on the Garden Side», una breve historia ambientada en la Segunda Guerra Mundial que Hemingway escribió durante una de sus estancias en París. Su origen se encuentra en el verano de 1957, cuando el autor escribió un total de cinco historias breves sobre las experiencias vividas años atrás, durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial. En agosto de ese mismo año se las entregó a su editor, Charles Scribner, al que le explicó que «las historias podrían ser un poco chocantes porque lidian con tropas irregulares, combates y personas que matan a personas». «De todos modos, siempre puedes publicarlos después de mi muerte», rezaba el final de la carta a Scribner. Estos cuentos se encuentran en la Biblioteca Museo John F. Kennedy de Boston y son conocidos dentro del entorno académico. Allí están los manuscritos de «A Room on the Garden Side», «Black Ass at the Crossroads», «Indian Country and the White Army», «The Monument» y «The Bubble Reputation», los títulos de los cinco cuentos que dejó en herencia el autor a su editor. Solo llegó a publicarse uno, «Black Ass at the Crossroads». Hasta ahora. Amor por París «Es una historia que refleja el amor de Hemingway por París, cómo odiaba la muerte y el sufrimiento y cómo amaba la vida», explica a ABC Andrew F. Gully, responsable de «The Strand Magazine». En 2.100 palabras, y narrada en primera persona, la historia está ambientada en el verano de 1944, cuando las tropas aliadas liberaron París de la ocupación nazi. En el epílogo de la obra, Kirk Curnutt, miembro de la junta directiva de la Hemingway Society, señala que la pieza «contiene todos los elementos que los lectores adoran en Hemingway». El cuento es una buena muestra de la fascinación de Hemingway por la guerra, que tanto plasmó en su literatura. El autor sirvió como voluntario en la Primera Guerra Mundial, conduciendo ambulancias en Italia, hasta que la metralla de una explosión le hirió de gravedad y volvió a Estados Unidos. Su experiencia en el combate le sirvió de inspiración para escribir la novela que le condujo a primera línea literaria: «Adiós a las armas» (1929). Lo mismo ocurrió con la Guerra Civil española y «Por quién doblan las campanas» (1940). Pero Hemingway no se cansó del campo de batalla entonces: fue soldado y reportero durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial y estuvo presente en Francia, en agosto de 1944, durante la liberación de la ocupación nazi y el Desembarco de Normandía. Cicatrices de batalla Desde ese momento su escritura se aderezó con las cicatrices de batalla, el amor, la guerra y la camaradería de los hombres que charlan sobre libros y vino, que están presentes en este nuevo cuento. Poco después de escribir «A Room on the Garden Side», Hemingway le confesó a su amigo Harvey Breit a través de una carta que odiaba «la naturaleza perturbadora de la fama», añadiendo que «probablemente sería mejor no publicar nada más; es más simple dejar las cosas una vez has muerto». Sin embargo, «A Room on the Garden Side» es la entrega veraniega de «The Strand Magazine», una publicación trimestral literaria que se dedica a divulgar trabajos inéditos de maestros literarios y nuevas obras de ficción de autores con gran relevancia en la actualidad. En cuanto al resto de inéditos, se desconoce cuándo saldrán a la luz, pues «la Hemingway Society quiere esperar a publicar los documentos en el momento correcto con el editor adecuado», según explica Andrew Gully.

The Uninhabitable Earth
Famine, economic collapse, a sun that cooks us: What climate change could wreak — sooner than you think.

By David Wallace-Wells

In the jungles of Costa Rica, where humidity routinely tops 90 percent, simply moving around outside when it’s over 105 degrees Fahrenheit would be lethal. And the effect would be fast: Within a few hours, a human body would be cooked to death from both inside and out. Fossils by Heartless Machine
July 9, 2017

I. ‘Doomsday’
Peering beyond scientific reticence.

It is, I promise, worse than you think. If your anxiety about global warming is dominated by fears of sea-level rise, you are barely scratching the surface of what terrors are possible, even within the lifetime of a teenager today. And yet the swelling seas — and the cities they will drown — have so dominated the picture of global warming, and so overwhelmed our capacity for climate panic, that they have occluded our perception of other threats, many much closer at hand. Rising oceans are bad, in fact very bad; but fleeing the coastline will not be enough.

Indeed, absent a significant adjustment to how billions of humans conduct their lives, parts of the Earth will likely become close to uninhabitable, and other parts horrifically inhospitable, as soon as the end of this century.

Even when we train our eyes on climate change, we are unable to comprehend its scope. This past winter, a string of days 60 and 70 degrees warmer than normal baked the North Pole, melting the permafrost that encased Norway’s Svalbard seed vault — a global food bank nicknamed “Doomsday,” designed to ensure that our agriculture survives any catastrophe, and which appeared to have been flooded by climate change less than ten years after being built.

The Doomsday vault is fine, for now: The structure has been secured and the seeds are safe. But treating the episode as a parable of impending flooding missed the more important news. Until recently, permafrost was not a major concern of climate scientists, because, as the name suggests, it was soil that stayed permanently frozen. But Arctic permafrost contains 1.8 trillion tons of carbon, more than twice as much as is currently suspended in the Earth’s atmosphere. When it thaws and is released, that carbon may evaporate as methane, which is 34 times as powerful a greenhouse-gas warming blanket as carbon dioxide when judged on the timescale of a century; when judged on the timescale of two decades, it is 86 times as powerful. In other words, we have, trapped in Arctic permafrost, twice as much carbon as is currently wrecking the atmosphere of the planet, all of it scheduled to be released at a date that keeps getting moved up, partially in the form of a gas that multiplies its warming power 86 times over.

Maybe you know that already — there are alarming stories in the news every day, like those, last month, that seemed to suggest satellite data showed the globe warming since 1998 more than twice as fast as scientists had thought (in fact, the underlying story was considerably less alarming than the headlines). Or the news from Antarctica this past May, when a crack in an ice shelf grew 11 miles in six days, then kept going; the break now has just three miles to go — by the time you read this, it may already have met the open water, where it will drop into the sea one of the biggest icebergs ever, a process known poetically as “calving.”


Watch: How Climate Change Is Creating More Powerful Hurricanes

But no matter how well-informed you are, you are surely not alarmed enough. Over the past decades, our culture has gone apocalyptic with zombie movies and Mad Max dystopias, perhaps the collective result of displaced climate anxiety, and yet when it comes to contemplating real-world warming dangers, we suffer from an incredible failure of imagination. The reasons for that are many: the timid language of scientific probabilities, which the climatologist James Hansen once called “scientific reticence” in a paper chastising scientists for editing their own observations so conscientiously that they failed to communicate how dire the threat really was; the fact that the country is dominated by a group of technocrats who believe any problem can be solved and an opposing culture that doesn’t even see warming as a problem worth addressing; the way that climate denialism has made scientists even more cautious in offering speculative warnings; the simple speed of change and, also, its slowness, such that we are only seeing effects now of warming from decades past; our uncertainty about uncertainty, which the climate writer Naomi Oreskes in particular has suggested stops us from preparing as though anything worse than a median outcome were even possible; the way we assume climate change will hit hardest elsewhere, not everywhere; the smallness (two degrees) and largeness (1.8 trillion tons) and abstractness (400 parts per million) of the numbers; the discomfort of considering a problem that is very difficult, if not impossible, to solve; the altogether incomprehensible scale of that problem, which amounts to the prospect of our own annihilation; simple fear. But aversion arising from fear is a form of denial, too.

In between scientific reticence and science fiction is science itself. This article is the result of dozens of interviews and exchanges with climatologists and researchers in related fields and reflects hundreds of scientific papers on the subject of climate change. What follows is not a series of predictions of what will happen — that will be determined in large part by the much-less-certain science of human response. Instead, it is a portrait of our best understanding of where the planet is heading absent aggressive action. It is unlikely that all of these warming scenarios will be fully realized, largely because the devastation along the way will shake our complacency. But those scenarios, and not the present climate, are the baseline. In fact, they are our schedule.

The present tense of climate change — the destruction we’ve already baked into our future — is horrifying enough. Most people talk as if Miami and Bangladesh still have a chance of surviving; most of the scientists I spoke with assume we’ll lose them within the century, even if we stop burning fossil fuel in the next decade. Two degrees of warming used to be considered the threshold of catastrophe: tens of millions of climate refugees unleashed upon an unprepared world. Now two degrees is our goal, per the Paris climate accords, and experts give us only slim odds of hitting it. The U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issues serial reports, often called the “gold standard” of climate research; the most recent one projects us to hit four degrees of warming by the beginning of the next century, should we stay the present course. But that’s just a median projection. The upper end of the probability curve runs as high as eight degrees — and the authors still haven’t figured out how to deal with that permafrost melt. The IPCC reports also don’t fully account for the albedo effect (less ice means less reflected and more absorbed sunlight, hence more warming); more cloud cover (which traps heat); or the dieback of forests and other flora (which extract carbon from the atmosphere). Each of these promises to accelerate warming, and the history of the planet shows that temperature can shift as much as five degrees Celsius within thirteen years. The last time the planet was even four degrees warmer, Peter Brannen points out in The Ends of the World, his new history of the planet’s major extinction events, the oceans were hundreds of feet higher.*

The Earth has experienced five mass extinctions before the one we are living through now, each so complete a slate-wiping of the evolutionary record it functioned as a resetting of the planetary clock, and many climate scientists will tell you they are the best analog for the ecological future we are diving headlong into. Unless you are a teenager, you probably read in your high-school textbooks that these extinctions were the result of asteroids. In fact, all but the one that killed the dinosaurs were caused by climate change produced by greenhouse gas. The most notorious was 252 million years ago; it began when carbon warmed the planet by five degrees, accelerated when that warming triggered the release of methane in the Arctic, and ended with 97 percent of all life on Earth dead. We are currently adding carbon to the atmosphere at a considerably faster rate; by most estimates, at least ten times faster. The rate is accelerating. This is what Stephen Hawking had in mind when he said, this spring, that the species needs to colonize other planets in the next century to survive, and what drove Elon Musk, last month, to unveil his plans to build a Mars habitat in 40 to 100 years. These are nonspecialists, of course, and probably as inclined to irrational panic as you or I. But the many sober-minded scientists I interviewed over the past several months — the most credentialed and tenured in the field, few of them inclined to alarmism and many advisers to the IPCC who nevertheless criticize its conservatism — have quietly reached an apocalyptic conclusion, too: No plausible program of emissions reductions alone can prevent climate disaster.

Over the past few decades, the term “Anthropocene” has climbed out of academic discourse and into the popular imagination — a name given to the geologic era we live in now, and a way to signal that it is a new era, defined on the wall chart of deep history by human intervention. One problem with the term is that it implies a conquest of nature (and even echoes the biblical “dominion”). And however sanguine you might be about the proposition that we have already ravaged the natural world, which we surely have, it is another thing entirely to consider the possibility that we have only provoked it, engineering first in ignorance and then in denial a climate system that will now go to war with us for many centuries, perhaps until it destroys us. That is what Wallace Smith Broecker, the avuncular oceanographer who coined the term “global warming,” means when he calls the planet an “angry beast.” You could also go with “war machine.” Each day we arm it more.

II. Heat Death

Humans, like all mammals, are heat engines; surviving means having to continually cool off, like panting dogs. For that, the temperature needs to be low enough for the air to act as a kind of refrigerant, drawing heat off the skin so the engine can keep pumping. At seven degrees of warming, that would become impossible for large portions of the planet’s equatorial band, and especially the tropics, where humidity adds to the problem; in the jungles of Costa Rica, for instance, where humidity routinely tops 90 percent, simply moving around outside when it’s over 105 degrees Fahrenheit would be lethal. And the effect would be fast: Within a few hours, a human body would be cooked to death from both inside and out.

Climate-change skeptics point out that the planet has warmed and cooled many times before, but the climate window that has allowed for human life is very narrow, even by the standards of planetary history. At 11 or 12 degrees of warming, more than half the world’s population, as distributed today, would die of direct heat. Things almost certainly won’t get that hot this century, though models of unabated emissions do bring us that far eventually. This century, and especially in the tropics, the pain points will pinch much more quickly even than an increase of seven degrees. The key factor is something called wet-bulb temperature, which is a term of measurement as home-laboratory-kit as it sounds: the heat registered on a thermometer wrapped in a damp sock as it’s swung around in the air (since the moisture evaporates from a sock more quickly in dry air, this single number reflects both heat and humidity). At present, most regions reach a wet-bulb maximum of 26 or 27 degrees Celsius; the true red line for habitability is 35 degrees. What is called heat stress comes much sooner.

Michael Oppenheimer: Only 10 Percent Chance We Meet Paris Targets
Actually, we’re about there already. Since 1980, the planet has experienced a 50-fold increase in the number of places experiencing dangerous or extreme heat; a bigger increase is to come. The five warmest summers in Europe since 1500 have all occurred since 2002, and soon, the IPCC warns, simply being outdoors that time of year will be unhealthy for much of the globe. Even if we meet the Paris goals of two degrees warming, cities like Karachi and Kolkata will become close to uninhabitable, annually encountering deadly heat waves like those that crippled them in 2015. At four degrees, the deadly European heat wave of 2003, which killed as many as 2,000 people a day, will be a normal summer. At six, according to an assessment focused only on effects within the U.S. from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, summer labor of any kind would become impossible in the lower Mississippi Valley, and everybody in the country east of the Rockies would be under more heat stress than anyone, anywhere, in the world today. As Joseph Romm has put it in his authoritative primer Climate Change: What Everyone Needs to Know, heat stress in New York City would exceed that of present-day Bahrain, one of the planet’s hottest spots, and the temperature in Bahrain “would induce hyperthermia in even sleeping humans.” The high-end IPCC estimate, remember, is two degrees warmer still. By the end of the century, the World Bank has estimated, the coolest months in tropical South America, Africa, and the Pacific are likely to be warmer than the warmest months at the end of the 20th century. Air-conditioning can help but will ultimately only add to the carbon problem; plus, the climate-controlled malls of the Arab emirates aside, it is not remotely plausible to wholesale air-condition all the hottest parts of the world, many of them also the poorest. And indeed, the crisis will be most dramatic across the Middle East and Persian Gulf, where in 2015 the heat index registered temperatures as high as 163 degrees Fahrenheit. As soon as several decades from now, the hajj will become physically impossible for the 2 million Muslims who make the pilgrimage each year.

It is not just the hajj, and it is not just Mecca; heat is already killing us. In the sugarcane region of El Salvador, as much as one-fifth of the population has chronic kidney disease, including over a quarter of the men, the presumed result of dehydration from working the fields they were able to comfortably harvest as recently as two decades ago. With dialysis, which is expensive, those with kidney failure can expect to live five years; without it, life expectancy is in the weeks. Of course, heat stress promises to pummel us in places other than our kidneys, too. As I type that sentence, in the California desert in mid-June, it is 121 degrees outside my door. It is not a record high.

III. The End of Food
Praying for cornfields in the tundra.

Climates differ and plants vary, but the basic rule for staple cereal crops grown at optimal temperature is that for every degree of warming, yields decline by 10 percent. Some estimates run as high as 15 or even 17 percent. Which means that if the planet is five degrees warmer at the end of the century, we may have as many as 50 percent more people to feed and 50 percent less grain to give them. And proteins are worse: It takes 16 calories of grain to produce just a single calorie of hamburger meat, butchered from a cow that spent its life polluting the climate with methane farts.

Pollyannaish plant physiologists will point out that the cereal-crop math applies only to those regions already at peak growing temperature, and they are right — theoretically, a warmer climate will make it easier to grow corn in Greenland. But as the pathbreaking work by Rosamond Naylor and David Battisti has shown, the tropics are already too hot to efficiently grow grain, and those places where grain is produced today are already at optimal growing temperature — which means even a small warming will push them down the slope of declining productivity. And you can’t easily move croplands north a few hundred miles, because yields in places like remote Canada and Russia are limited by the quality of soil there; it takes many centuries for the planet to produce optimally fertile dirt.

Drought might be an even bigger problem than heat, with some of the world’s most arable land turning quickly to desert. Precipitation is notoriously hard to model, yet predictions for later this century are basically unanimous: unprecedented droughts nearly everywhere food is today produced. By 2080, without dramatic reductions in emissions, southern Europe will be in permanent extreme drought, much worse than the American dust bowl ever was. The same will be true in Iraq and Syria and much of the rest of the Middle East; some of the most densely populated parts of Australia, Africa, and South America; and the breadbasket regions of China. None of these places, which today supply much of the world’s food, will be reliable sources of any. As for the original dust bowl: The droughts in the American plains and Southwest would not just be worse than in the 1930s, a 2015 NASA study predicted, but worse than any droughts in a thousand years — and that includes those that struck between 1100 and 1300, which “dried up all the rivers East of the Sierra Nevada mountains” and may have been responsible for the death of the Anasazi civilization.

Remember, we do not live in a world without hunger as it is. Far from it: Most estimates put the number of undernourished at 800 million globally. In case you haven’t heard, this spring has already brought an unprecedented quadruple famine to Africa and the Middle East; the U.N. has warned that separate starvation events in Somalia, South Sudan, Nigeria, and Yemen could kill 20 million this year alone.

IV. Climate Plagues
What happens when the bubonic ice melts?

Rock, in the right spot, is a record of planetary history, eras as long as millions of years flattened by the forces of geological time into strata with amplitudes of just inches, or just an inch, or even less. Ice works that way, too, as a climate ledger, but it is also frozen history, some of which can be reanimated when unfrozen. There are now, trapped in Arctic ice, diseases that have not circulated in the air for millions of years — in some cases, since before humans were around to encounter them. Which means our immune systems would have no idea how to fight back when those prehistoric plagues emerge from the ice.

The Arctic also stores terrifying bugs from more recent times. In Alaska, already, researchers have discovered remnants of the 1918 flu that infected as many as 500 million and killed as many as 100 million — about 5 percent of the world’s population and almost six times as many as had died in the world war for which the pandemic served as a kind of gruesome capstone. As the BBC reported in May, scientists suspect smallpox and the bubonic plague are trapped in Siberian ice, too — an abridged history of devastating human sickness, left out like egg salad in the Arctic sun.

Experts caution that many of these organisms won’t actually survive the thaw and point to the fastidious lab conditions under which they have already reanimated several of them — the 32,000-year-old “extremophile” bacteria revived in 2005, an 8 million-year-old bug brought back to life in 2007, the 3.5 million–year–old one a Russian scientist self-injected just out of curiosity — to suggest that those are necessary conditions for the return of such ancient plagues. But already last year, a boy was killed and 20 others infected by anthrax released when retreating permafrost exposed the frozen carcass of a reindeer killed by the bacteria at least 75 years earlier; 2,000 present-day reindeer were infected, too, carrying and spreading the disease beyond the tundra.

What concerns epidemiologists more than ancient diseases are existing scourges relocated, rewired, or even re-evolved by warming. The first effect is geographical. Before the early-modern period, when adventuring sailboats accelerated the mixing of peoples and their bugs, human provinciality was a guard against pandemic. Today, even with globalization and the enormous intermingling of human populations, our ecosystems are mostly stable, and this functions as another limit, but global warming will scramble those ecosystems and help disease trespass those limits as surely as Cortés did. You don’t worry much about dengue or malaria if you are living in Maine or France. But as the tropics creep northward and mosquitoes migrate with them, you will. You didn’t much worry about Zika a couple of years ago, either.

As it happens, Zika may also be a good model of the second worrying effect — disease mutation. One reason you hadn’t heard about Zika until recently is that it had been trapped in Uganda; another is that it did not, until recently, appear to cause birth defects. Scientists still don’t entirely understand what happened, or what they missed. But there are things we do know for sure about how climate affects some diseases: Malaria, for instance, thrives in hotter regions not just because the mosquitoes that carry it do, too, but because for every degree increase in temperature, the parasite reproduces ten times faster. Which is one reason that the World Bank estimates that by 2050, 5.2 billion people will be reckoning with it.

V. Unbreathable Air
A rolling death smog that suffocates millions.

Our lungs need oxygen, but that is only a fraction of what we breathe. The fraction of carbon dioxide is growing: It just crossed 400 parts per million, and high-end estimates extrapolating from current trends suggest it will hit 1,000 ppm by 2100. At that concentration, compared to the air we breathe now, human cognitive ability declines by 21 percent.

Other stuff in the hotter air is even scarier, with small increases in pollution capable of shortening life spans by ten years. The warmer the planet gets, the more ozone forms, and by mid-century, Americans will likely suffer a 70 percent increase in unhealthy ozone smog, the National Center for Atmospheric Research has projected. By 2090, as many as 2 billion people globally will be breathing air above the WHO “safe” level; one paper last month showed that, among other effects, a pregnant mother’s exposure to ozone raises the child’s risk of autism (as much as tenfold, combined with other environmental factors). Which does make you think again about the autism epidemic in West Hollywood.

Already, more than 10,000 people die each day from the small particles emitted from fossil-fuel burning; each year, 339,000 people die from wildfire smoke, in part because climate change has extended forest-fire season (in the U.S., it’s increased by 78 days since 1970). By 2050, according to the U.S. Forest Service, wildfires will be twice as destructive as they are today; in some places, the area burned could grow fivefold. What worries people even more is the effect that would have on emissions, especially when the fires ravage forests arising out of peat. Peatland fires in Indonesia in 1997, for instance, added to the global CO2 release by up to 40 percent, and more burning only means more warming only means more burning. There is also the terrifying possibility that rain forests like the Amazon, which in 2010 suffered its second “hundred-year drought” in the space of five years, could dry out enough to become vulnerable to these kinds of devastating, rolling forest fires — which would not only expel enormous amounts of carbon into the atmosphere but also shrink the size of the forest. That is especially bad because the Amazon alone provides 20 percent of our oxygen.

Then there are the more familiar forms of pollution. In 2013, melting Arctic ice remodeled Asian weather patterns, depriving industrial China of the natural ventilation systems it had come to depend on, which blanketed much of the country’s north in an unbreathable smog. Literally unbreathable. A metric called the Air Quality Index categorizes the risks and tops out at the 301-to-500 range, warning of “serious aggravation of heart or lung disease and premature mortality in persons with cardiopulmonary disease and the elderly” and, for all others, “serious risk of respiratory effects”; at that level, “everyone should avoid all outdoor exertion.” The Chinese “airpocalypse” of 2013 peaked at what would have been an Air Quality Index of over 800. That year, smog was responsible for a third of all deaths in the country.

VI. Perpetual War
The violence baked into heat.

Climatologists are very careful when talking about Syria. They want you to know that while climate change did produce a drought that contributed to civil war, it is not exactly fair to saythat the conflict is the result of warming; next door, for instance, Lebanon suffered the same crop failures. But researchers like Marshall Burke and Solomon Hsiang have managed to quantify some of the non-obvious relationships between temperature and violence: For every half-degree of warming, they say, societies will see between a 10 and 20 percent increase in the likelihood of armed conflict. In climate science, nothing is simple, but the arithmetic is harrowing: A planet five degrees warmer would have at least half again as many wars as we do today. Overall, social conflict could more than double this century.

This is one reason that, as nearly every climate scientist I spoke to pointed out, the U.S. military is obsessed with climate change: The drowning of all American Navy bases by sea-level rise is trouble enough, but being the world’s policeman is quite a bit harder when the crime rate doubles. Of course, it’s not just Syria where climate has contributed to conflict. Some speculate that the elevated level of strife across the Middle East over the past generation reflects the pressures of global warming — a hypothesis all the more cruel considering that warming began accelerating when the industrialized world extracted and then burned the region’s oil.

What accounts for the relationship between climate and conflict? Some of it comes down to agriculture and economics; a lot has to do with forced migration, already at a record high, with at least 65 million displaced people wandering the planet right now. But there is also the simple fact of individual irritability. Heat increases municipal crime rates, and swearing on social media, and the likelihood that a major-league pitcher, coming to the mound after his teammate has been hit by a pitch, will hit an opposing batter in retaliation. And the arrival of air-conditioning in the developed world, in the middle of the past century, did little to solve the problem of the summer crime wave.

VII. Permanent Economic Collapse
Dismal capitalism in a half-poorer world.

The murmuring mantra of global neoliberalism, which prevailed between the end of the Cold War and the onset of the Great Recession, is that economic growth would save us from anything and everything.
But in the aftermath of the 2008 crash, a growing number of historians studying what they call “fossil capitalism” have begun to suggest that the entire history of swift economic growth, which began somewhat suddenly in the 18th century, is not the result of innovation or trade or the dynamics of global capitalism but simply our discovery of fossil fuels and all their raw power — a onetime injection of new “value” into a system that had previously been characterized by global subsistence living. Before fossil fuels, nobody lived better than their parents or grandparents or ancestors from 500 years before, except in the immediate aftermath of a great plague like the Black Death, which allowed the lucky survivors to gobble up the resources liberated by mass graves. After we’ve burned all the fossil fuels, these scholars suggest, perhaps we will return to a “steady state” global economy. Of course, that onetime injection has a devastating long-term cost: climate change.

The most exciting research on the economics of warming has also come from Hsiang and his colleagues, who are not historians of fossil capitalism but who offer some very bleak analysis of their own: Every degree Celsius of warming costs, on average, 1.2 percent of GDP (an enormous number, considering we count growth in the low single digits as “strong”). This is the sterling work in the field, and their median projection is for a 23 percent loss in per capita earning globally by the end of this century (resulting from changes in agriculture, crime, storms, energy, mortality, and labor).
Tracing the shape of the probability curve is even scarier: There is a 12 percent chance that climate change will reduce global output by more than 50 percent by 2100, they say, and a 51 percent chance that it lowers per capita GDP by 20 percent or more by then, unless emissions decline. By comparison, the Great Recession lowered global GDP by about 6 percent, in a onetime shock; Hsiang and his colleagues estimate a one-in-eight chance of an ongoing and irreversible effect by the end of the century that is eight times worse.

The scale of that economic devastation is hard to comprehend, but you can start by imagining what the world would look like today with an economy half as big, which would produce only half as much value, generating only half as much to offer the workers of the world. It makes the grounding of flights out of heat-stricken Phoenix last month seem like pathetically small economic potatoes. And, among other things, it makes the idea of postponing government action on reducing emissions and relying solely on growth and technology to solve the problem an absurd business calculation.
Every round-trip ticket on flights from New York to London, keep in mind, costs the Arctic three more square meters of ice.

VIII. Poisoned Oceans
Sulfide burps off the skeleton coast.

That the sea will become a killer is a given. Barring a radical reduction of emissions, we will see at least four feet of sea-level rise and possibly ten by the end of the century. A third of the world’s major cities are on the coast, not to mention its power plants, ports, navy bases, farmlands, fisheries, river deltas, marshlands, and rice-paddy empires, and even those above ten feet will flood much more easily, and much more regularly, if the water gets that high. At least 600 million people live within ten meters of sea level today.

But the drowning of those homelands is just the start. At present, more than a third of the world’s carbon is sucked up by the oceans — thank God, or else we’d have that much more warming already. But the result is what’s called “ocean acidification,” which, on its own, may add a half a degree to warming this century. It is also already burning through the planet’s water basins — you may remember these as the place where life arose in the first place. You have probably heard of “coral bleaching” — that is, coral dying — which is very bad news, because reefs support as much as a quarter of all marine life and supply food for half a billion people. Ocean acidification will fry fish populations directly, too, though scientists aren’t yet sure how to predict the effects on the stuff we haul out of the ocean to eat; they do know that in acid waters, oysters and mussels will struggle to grow their shells, and that when the pH of human blood drops as much as the oceans’ pH has over the past generation, it induces seizures, comas, and sudden death.

That isn’t all that ocean acidification can do. Carbon absorption can initiate a feedback loop in which underoxygenated waters breed different kinds of microbes that turn the water still more “anoxic,” first in deep ocean “dead zones,” then gradually up toward the surface. There, the small fish die out, unable to breathe, which means oxygen-eating bacteria thrive, and the feedback loop doubles back. This process, in which dead zones grow like cancers, choking off marine life and wiping out fisheries, is already quite advanced in parts of the Gulf of Mexico and just off Namibia, where hydrogen sulfide is bubbling out of the sea along a thousand-mile stretch of land known as the “Skeleton Coast.” The name originally referred to the detritus of the whaling industry, but today it’s more apt than ever. Hydrogen sulfide is so toxic that evolution has trained us to recognize the tiniest, safest traces of it, which is why our noses are so exquisitely skilled at registering flatulence. Hydrogen sulfide is also the thing that finally did us in that time 97 percent of all life on Earth died, once all the feedback loops had been triggered and the circulating jet streams of a warmed ocean ground to a halt — it’s the planet’s preferred gas for a natural holocaust. Gradually, the ocean’s dead zones spread, killing off marine species that had dominated the oceans for hundreds of millions of years, and the gas the inert waters gave off into the atmosphere poisoned everything on land. Plants, too. It was millions of years before the oceans recovered.

IX. The Great Filter
Our present eeriness cannot last.

So why can’t we see it? In his recent book-length essay The Great Derangement, the Indian novelist Amitav Ghosh wonders why global warming and natural disaster haven’t become major subjects of contemporary fiction — why we don’t seem able to imagine climate catastrophe, and why we haven’t yet had a spate of novels in the genre he basically imagines into half-existence and names “the environmental uncanny.” “Consider, for example, the stories that congeal around questions like, ‘Where were you when the Berlin Wall fell?’ or ‘Where were you on 9/11?’ ” he writes. “Will it ever be possible to ask, in the same vein, ‘Where were you at 400 ppm?’ or ‘Where were you when the Larsen B ice shelf broke up?’ ” His answer: Probably not, because the dilemmas and dramas of climate change are simply incompatible with the kinds of stories we tell ourselves about ourselves, especially in novels, which tend to emphasize the journey of an individual conscience rather than the poisonous miasma of social fate.

Surely this blindness will not last — the world we are about to inhabit will not permit it. In a six-degree-warmer world, the Earth’s ecosystem will boil with so many natural disasters that we will just start calling them “weather”: a constant swarm of out-of-control typhoons and tornadoes and floods and droughts, the planet assaulted regularly with climate events that not so long ago destroyed whole civilizations. The strongest hurricanes will come more often, and we’ll have to invent new categories with which to describe them; tornadoes will grow longer and wider and strike much more frequently, and hail rocks will quadruple in size. Humans used to watch the weather to prophesy the future; going forward, we will see in its wrath the vengeance of the past. Early naturalists talked often about “deep time” — the perception they had, contemplating the grandeur of this valley or that rock basin, of the profound slowness of nature. What lies in store for us is more like what the Victorian anthropologists identified as “dreamtime,” or “everywhen”: the semi-mythical experience, described by Aboriginal Australians, of encountering, in the present moment, an out-of-time past, when ancestors, heroes, and demigods crowded an epic stage. You can find it already watching footage of an iceberg collapsing into the sea — a feeling of history happening all at once.

It is. Many people perceive climate change as a sort of moral and economic debt, accumulated since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution and now come due after several centuries — a helpful perspective, in a way, since it is the carbon-burning processes that began in 18th-century England that lit the fuse of everything that followed. But more than half of the carbon humanity has exhaled into the atmosphere in its entire history has been emitted in just the past three decades; since the end of World War II, the figure is 85 percent. Which means that, in the length of a single generation, global warming has brought us to the brink of planetary catastrophe, and that the story of the industrial world’s kamikaze mission is also the story of a single lifetime. My father’s, for instance: born in 1938, among his first memories the news of Pearl Harbor and the mythic Air Force of the propaganda films that followed, films that doubled as advertisements for imperial-American industrial might; and among his last memories the coverage of the desperate signing of the Paris climate accords on cable news, ten weeks before he died of lung cancer last July. Or my mother’s: born in 1945, to German Jews fleeing the smokestacks through which their relatives were incinerated, now enjoying her 72nd year in an American commodity paradise, a paradise supported by the supply chains of an industrialized developing world. She has been smoking for 57 of those years, unfiltered.

Or the scientists’. Some of the men who first identified a changing climate (and given the generation, those who became famous were men) are still alive; a few are even still working. Wally Broecker is 84 years old and drives to work at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory across the Hudson every day from the Upper West Side. Like most of those who first raised the alarm, he believes that no amount of emissions reduction alone can meaningfully help avoid disaster. Instead, he puts his faith in carbon capture — untested technology to extract carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, which Broecker estimates will cost at least several trillion dollars — and various forms of “geoengineering,” the catchall name for a variety of moon-shot technologies far-fetched enough that many climate scientists prefer to regard them as dreams, or nightmares, from science fiction. He is especially focused on what’s called the aerosol approach — dispersing so much sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere that when it converts to sulfuric acid, it will cloud a fifth of the horizon and reflect back 2 percent of the sun’s rays, buying the planet at least a little wiggle room, heat-wise. “Of course, that would make our sunsets very red, would bleach the sky, would make more acid rain,” he says. “But you have to look at the magnitude of the problem. You got to watch that you don’t say the giant problem shouldn’t be solved because the solution causes some smaller problems.” He won’t be around to see that, he told me. “But in your lifetime …”

Jim Hansen is another member of this godfather generation. Born in 1941, he became a climatologist at the University of Iowa, developed the groundbreaking “Zero Model” for projecting climate change, and later became the head of climate research at NASA, only to leave under pressure when, while still a federal employee, he filed a lawsuit against the federal government charging inaction on warming (along the way he got arrested a few times for protesting, too). The lawsuit, which is brought by a collective called Our Children’s Trust and is often described as “kids versus climate change,” is built on an appeal to the equal-protection clause, namely, that in failing to take action on warming, the government is violating it by imposing massive costs on future generations; it is scheduled to be heard this winter in Oregon district court. Hansen has recently given up on solving the climate problem with a carbon tax alone, which had been his preferred approach, and has set about calculating the total cost of the additional measure of extracting carbon from the atmosphere.

Climate Scientist James Hansen: ‘The Planet Could Become Ungovernable’
The 10-Book ‘Uninhabitable Earth’ Reading List
Hansen began his career studying Venus, which was once a very Earth-like planet with plenty of life-supporting water before runaway climate change rapidly transformed it into an arid and uninhabitable sphere enveloped in an unbreathable gas; he switched to studying our planet by 30, wondering why he should be squinting across the solar system to explore rapid environmental change when he could see it all around him on the planet he was standing on. “When we wrote our first paper on this, in 1981,” he told me, “I remember saying to one of my co-authors, ‘This is going to be very interesting. Sometime during our careers, we’re going to see these things beginning to happen.’ ”

Several of the scientists I spoke with proposed global warming as the solution to Fermi’s famous paradox, which asks, If the universe is so big, then why haven’t we encountered any other intelligent life in it? The answer, they suggested, is that the natural life span of a civilization may be only several thousand years, and the life span of an industrial civilization perhaps only several hundred. In a universe that is many billions of years old, with star systems separated as much by time as by space, civilizations might emerge and develop and burn themselves up simply too fast to ever find one another. Peter Ward, a charismatic paleontologist among those responsible for discovering that the planet’s mass extinctions were caused by greenhouse gas, calls this the “Great Filter”: “Civilizations rise, but there’s an environmental filter that causes them to die off again and disappear fairly quickly,” he told me. “If you look at planet Earth, the filtering we’ve had in the past has been in these mass extinctions.” The mass extinction we are now living through has only just begun; so much more dying is coming.

And yet, improbably, Ward is an optimist. So are Broecker and Hansen and many of the other scientists I spoke to. We have not developed much of a religion of meaning around climate change that might comfort us, or give us purpose, in the face of possible annihilation. But climate scientists have a strange kind of faith: We will find a way to forestall radical warming, they say, because we must.

It is not easy to know how much to be reassured by that bleak certainty, and how much to wonder whether it is another form of delusion; for global warming to work as parable, of course, someone needs to survive to tell the story. The scientists know that to even meet the Paris goals, by 2050, carbon emissions from energy and industry, which are still rising, will have to fall by half each decade; emissions from land use (deforestation, cow farts, etc.) will have to zero out; and we will need to have invented technologies to extract, annually, twice as much carbon from the atmosphere as the entire planet’s plants now do. Nevertheless, by and large, the scientists have an enormous confidence in the ingenuity of humans — a confidence perhaps bolstered by their appreciation for climate change, which is, after all, a human invention, too. They point to the Apollo project, the hole in the ozone we patched in the 1980s, the passing of the fear of mutually assured destruction. Now we’ve found a way to engineer our own doomsday, and surely we will find a way to engineer our way out of it, one way or another. The planet is not used to being provoked like this, and climate systems designed to give feedback over centuries or millennia prevent us — even those who may be watching closely — from fully imagining the damage done already to the planet. But when we do truly see the world we’ve made, they say, we will also find a way to make it livable. For them, the alternative is simply unimaginable.

          La sonda Parker despegará con el objeto de "tocar el Sol" este fin de semana      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Armada con un escudo de alta tecnología para protegerla del intensísimo calor, la sonda Parker despegará el sábado dispuesta a "tocar el Sol" y tratar de responder a una pregunta que atormenta a los científicos: ¿por qué su corona es infinitamente más caliente que su superficie?

La sonda, que volará el sábado desde Cabo Cañaveral en Florida, será el primer objeto construido por el hombre para hacer frente a las condiciones infernales de esta parte de la atmósfera de nuestra estrella y la atravesará 24 veces a unos 6,2 millones de kilómetros de la superficie del Sol durante los siete años que está previsto que dure la misión.

Para sobrevivir, la nave está equipada con un escudo compuesto de carbono de unos 12 centímetros de espesor que debe protegerla de una temperatura de 1.400 grados -suficiente para fundir el silicio- y mantener funcionando los instrumentos científicos a unos cómodos 29 grados.

Estos instrumentos deben permitir medir las partículas de alta energía, las fluctuaciones magnéticas y tomar imágenes para comprender mejor esta corona, que es "un ambiente muy extraño, desconocido para nosotros", dice Alex Young, un especialista en el Sol de la NASA.

De hecho, la observación a distancia llegó a su límite, dice Nicky Fox, miembro del Laboratorio de Física Aplicada de la Universidad Johns Hopkins y responsable científica de la misión.

"Tenemos que ir a donde esto ocurre, donde pasan todas estas cosas misteriosas", dice.

Cuanto más lejos, más caliente

A diferencia de una hoguera, donde la parte más caliente está en el centro, la temperatura aumenta a medida que uno se aleja del Sol, indica Informe21.

"Cuando pasas de la superficie del Sol, que está a 5.500 grados Celsius, a la corona, nos encontramos rápidamente a millones de grados", explica Young.

El experto espera que Parker, la única nave de la NASA que lleva el nombre de un científico aún vivo -el famoso astrólogo de 91 años Eugene Parker-, ayude a dar respuestas a lo que la NASA llama el "problema del calentamiento de la corona".

El asunto también es importante para predecir mejor el clima espacial.

Por lo tanto, las tormentas solares se alcanzan a sentir hasta en la Tierra, donde pueden perturbar el funcionamiento de la red eléctrica, pero también provocar fallas en los satélites que orbitan el planeta o incluso poner en peligro la vida de los astronautas.

"Es tan importante para nosotros ser capaces de predecir el clima espacial como lo es predecir el clima en la Tierra", sostiene Young.

Parker, que se convertirá en la nave espacial más rápida construida por el hombre con una velocidad máxima de 692.000 km/h, debe despegar el 11 de agosto de la base espacial en Cabo Cañaveral a las 03H48 (07H48 GMT).

El vehículo, que tiene el tamaño de un automóvil y costó 1.500 millones de dólares, ya está instalado en la parte superior del cohete Delta IV-Heavy, que debe llevarlo al espacio.
          Astrónomos solicitan que se renombre el Planeta Nueve      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
La Unión Astronómica Internacional (UAI) reclasificó a Plutón como un "planeta enano" en 2006. La denominación ya causó controversia, y ahora un grupo de científicios del espacio plantean que el uso del término "Planeta 9" para objetos más allá de Plutón es insensible al legado del astrónomo planetario Clyde W. Tombaugh, su descubridor.

Según explican estas decenas de astrónomos:

Creemos además que el uso de este término debe suspenderse a favor de términos culturalmente y taxonómicamente neutrales para tales planetas, como el Planeta X, el Planeta Próximo o el Planeta Gigante Cinco.

Entre los firmantes figuran Alan Stern, investigador principal de la misión New Horizons de la NASA. También están Paul Abell, Michael Allison, Nadine Barlow, James Bauer, Gordon Bjoraker, Paul Byrne, Eric Christiansen, Rajani Dhingra, Timothy Dowling, David Dunham, Tony L. Farnham, Harold Geller, Alvero Gonzalez, David Grinspoon, Will Grundy, George Hindman, Kampalayya M. Hiremath, Brian Holler, Stephanie Jarmak, Martin Knapmeyer, Rosaly Lopes, Amy Lovell, Ralph McNutt, Phil Metzger, Sripada Murty, Michael Paul, Kirby Runyon, Ray Russell, John Stansberry, Mike Summers, Henry Throop, Hal Weaver, Larry Wasserman y Sloane Wiktorowicz.

Nosotros, los abajo firmantes, deseamos recordar a nuestros colegas que la definición de planeta de la IAU adoptada en 2006 ha sido controvertida y está lejos de ser universalmente aceptada. Ante esto, y dado el increíble logro del descubrimiento de Plutón, el heraldo de la tercera zona del sistema solar (el Cinturón de Kuiper) por el astrónomo planetario Clyde W. Tombaugh en 1930, los abajo firmantes creemos que el uso del término "Planeta 9" para objetos más allá de Plutón es insensible al legado del Profesor Tombaugh.

Tombaugh trabajaba en el Observatorio Lowell en Flagstaff (Arizona), donde llevaba una búsqueda sistemática de cuerpos más allá de la órbita de Neptuno, indica Informe21.

Buscaba el planeta X, un hipotético planeta capaz de explicar por sus interacciones gravitatorias con Neptuno algunos detalles de la órbita de este último. La existencia del Planeta X había sido predicha por Percival Lowell y William Pickering.

Plutón recibió su nombre del dios romano del mundo de los muertos, capaz de volverse invisible. El nombre fue favorecido entre una lista de varios otros en parte por iniciarse con las letras PL, iniciales de Percival Lowell.

The following review is a special for BlackFive readers provided by Elise Cooper. You can read all of our book reviews and author interviews by clicking on the Books category link in the right side bar. Dark Side of the Moonby Alan Jacobson is another “OPSIG Team Black” adventure. This story will literally take people to a new dimension. Readers will feel they are on a journey on F-18 fighter planes and a trip to the moon while combating espionage, the dark secrets of the moon, and kidnapping. Jacobson commented, “After reading this article about Apollo 17 bringing back moon rocks I had an idea that maybe they could be used for military purposes. Since I do not write science fiction I needed to do a lot of research and worked with some awesome people. I talked with an engineer who worked on the Space Shuttle and is currently working on a NASA project. The different organizations that cooperated were NASA, JPL, Lockheed, and SPACEX. People helped me work out the logistics of how the mission should be carried out. Even though it was quite an endeavor, given the opportunity I would do it again. Mainly, because I have been fascinated with space, growing up with Star Trek and the Apollo missions.” Readers find out that after returning to the earth in 1972 Apollo 17 brought back some classified items. Discovering its importance, a NASA engineer leaks the information to foreign governments. Now there is a race to the moon to find an element called Caesarium. If found it can be used to produce a weapon with an ultimate magnitude of destruction, that has important military applications. In order to stop China and Russia Hector DeSantos and Aaron Uziel (Uzi) join with two astronauts on a mission called Operation Containment. They must prevent Caesarium from being brought back. Meanwhile back on earth, Karen Vail and company have determined that the mission has been sabotaged and they must find out the mole who did it. Karen Vail and her colleague Alexandra Rusakov will have to find the mole and destroy the spy ring that planted malware on the ships that are now headed for the Moon. To complicate matters Hector’s father is kidnapped and will be used as leverage. The author likes to venture out and write new stories. His last book, Darkness of Evil, and his next book will delve into serial killers. “As a writer, I want to keep fresh and different. I want to challenge my characters and myself to acclimate to new environments. Karen Vail has been to Paris, England, and Spain maneuvering through the different cultures, places, laws, and law enforcement. I think this current book about moon elements is extremely relevant. Space can help with our military readiness that includes determining logistics. We need to maintain our superiority in space and should applaud our President’s efforts to reinvigorate our space program. We need a moon base to collect natural resources and use it as a spring board to get to another planet.” Space is coming to the forefront once again. This believable story shows the importance of America keeping its space superiority. It also highlights how Karen Vail must maneuver through lies, betrayals, and disloyalties to find the culprits.

Tartalom:  Izraelben az izraeli hadsereg fogságában egy fogoly kihallgatása során egyetlen szót suttog: "kima". Franciaországban a rendőrség három palesztint üldöz, akik kocsival menekülnek. Az egyik útelzárásnál tűzpárbaj alakul ki, melyben két palesztin meghal, egyikük, bizonyos Abdel El-Famy elmenekül. David Sokarev, a tekintélyes izraeli atomtudós előadássorozatával a világ nagyvárosait járja. Palesztin merénylők szövetkeznek az IRA fegyvereseivel, hogy londoni beszéde közben likvidálják a professzort. A Terrorelhárítás tisztában van a veszéllyel. Sokarevnek mégsem szabad lemondani a programját, mert az azt jelentené: Izrael meghátrál a fenyegetés előtt. Természetesen az izraeli vezetés és a brit titkosszolgálat mindent megtesz a merénylet megelőzése érdekében. A rendőrség mellett a katonaságot is kivezénylik a londoni utcákra, ahol már véres küzdelem folyik: két ember, Abdel El-Famy, és az IRA-terrorista Kieran McCoy szabályos hajtóvadászatot rendez és vár a végső pillanatra, amikor lecsaphat. A britek végül bevetik Jimmyt, a volt ügynököt, aki alkoholproblémái miatt volt kényszerpihenőn. Tény, hogy Jimmy egyik kezében örökké ott a whiskysüveg, de ha kell, könyörtelen és hidegvérű gyilkossá változik.

          El Senado argentino vota dividido la ley del aborto      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Agotaron los recursos y la imaginación. En la conocida Plaza de los dos Congresos, las mujeres de verde (a favor del proyecto de ley) y las de celeste (en contra) desplegaron este jueves las últimas pancartas y escenificaron sus posiciones a la espera de la decisión del Senado. El «NO» al proyecto que ampliaba los supuestos para abortar legalmente (hasta ahora se puede en caso de violación y riesgo para la madre) parecía tener ganada la guerra después de haber perdido la primera batalla en la Cámara de Diputados. Si nadie se arrepentía ni se producía una huida del hemiciclo, el resultado previsto sería de 38 votos en contra y 31 a favor. Entre estos, presumiblemente, el de la expresidenta Cristina Fernández, la misma que, durante sus dos Gobiernos, convirtió en tabú el tratamiento legislativo del aborto. De confirmarse, con la votación prevista para la madrugada, que se rechazaba el proyecto el asunto no podrá volver a abordarse hasta dentro de un año. La incógnita a despejar era la reacción de la marea verde que hacía guardia en la calle. Maurico Macri, en en teoría en contra del aborto, dio a los suyos libertad de conciencia para votar pero en la sesión de junio del Congreso, las gestiones de última hora de hombres de su confianza, fueron decisivas para lograr la media sanción de la ley. Ayer, antes de que empezara el debate en el Senado, colgó una carta en FB donde daba señales de estar preparado para el NO. Con el título, «No importa cual sea el resultado, hoy ganará la democracia», el presidente de Argentina observaba: «si entendemos que nuestras creencias a veces ganarán y otras perderán, llegaremos a ser algo sin igual: verdaderamente libres y mejores personas». Las aguas de «Cambiemos», la coalición de Gobierno, estaban divididas en el Congreso y en el Senado. En éste, la vicepresidenta y titular de la Cámara Alta, Gabriela Michetti, era la máxima exponente en contra de ampliar los supuestos de la ley e incluso de aceptar la interrupción del embarazo en casos de violación. En esa órbita, la gobernadora de Buenos Aires, María Eugenia Vidal, admitía, «Si la ley no se vota hoy, voy a estar más aliviada». Los dos bandos, enfrentados por la despenalización total del aborto, encontraron adhesiones dentro y fuera de Argentina. Amnistía Internacional publicó un anuncio de una página en el New York Times que logró la reacción de actrices como Susan Sarandon que advirtió a los senadores. «El mundo les está mirando: denle a las mujeres el derecho a elegir», tuiteó. En España artistas como Joan Manuel Serrat, Ana Belén, Victor Manuel o Miguel Ríos se colocaron en idéntica posición. Y, en simultáneo, una representación de la plataforma CitizenGo para América Latina se expresó en sentido radicalmente opuesto en la Embajada de Argentina en Madrid. Las manifestaciones, desde el pasado 14 de junio, fecha de la media sanción en el Congreso al proyecto de ley impulsado por el Gobierno de Mauricio Macri, fueron de todos los colores. Las mujeres de verde llegaron a disfrazarse de rojo con cofia blanca en una parodia de la célebre serie «El Cuento de la Criada», mientras las de celeste se embanderaron con la bandera argentina en una multitudinaria marcha. La carrera contra reloj para frenar o garantizar la promulgación del proyecto no tuvo descanso desde entonces. La intervención silenciosa de Francisco desde el Vaticano, -como advertía el analista Ignacio Zuleta en Clarín- y la ruidosa de un grupo de obispos de Córdoba, se atravesaron en la recta final del Senado donde el NO parecía no tener marcha atrás. Si las previsiones, como todo parecía indicar, se confirmaban por la noche, más de la mitad del Senado (y de las senadoras) votarían en contra. La sesión, que se anunciaba como histórica, lo habría sido pero menos.
          Ο πράσινος τεράστιος κομήτης Χαλκ πλησιάζει την Γη      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Ένας γιγάντιος πρασινωπής απόχρωσης κομήτης -που έχει βαφτιστεί «Απίστευτος Χαλκ» λόγω χρώματος και μεγέθους- διασχίζει αυτό τον καιρό τον ουρανό, πλησιάζοντας συνεχώς τον Ήλιο. Ο «Χαλκ» θα κάνει σήμερα την κοντινότερη προσέγγισή του στη Γη, περνώντας σε απόσταση ασφαλείας περίπου 113 εκατομμυρίων χιλιομέτρων. Ο κομήτης, με την επίσημη ονομασία C/2017 S3, είχε ανακαλυφθεί από το τηλεσκόπιο PanSTARRS στη Χαβάη το Δεκέμβριο του 2017. Πιθανότατα είναι η πρώτη φορά που έχει «τρυπώσει» στην εσωτερική περιοχή του ηλιακού μας συστήματος.
Οι έως τώρα παρατηρήσεις του έδειξαν δύο φωτεινές απροσδιόριστης αιτίας εκρήξεις πάνω στον κομήτη (μία στις 30 Ιουνίου και η δεύτερη μετά από δύο εβδομάδες), οι οποίες τον έκαναν ξαφνικά πολύ πιο φωτεινό. Η δεύτερη έκρηξη δημιούργησε ένα τεράστιο νέφος αερίων γύρω από τον κομήτη, το οποίο έχει μέγεθος σχεδόν διπλάσιο του Δία, φθάνοντας σε έκταση έως 260.000 χιλιομέτρων. 
Η πράσινη απόχρωση του κομήτη αποδίδεται στα μόρια κυανίου και άνθρακα, τα οποία ιοντίζονται, όταν θερμαίνονται από τον Ήλιο, με αποτέλεσμα τα ηλεκτρόνια και τα πρωτόνιά τους να διαχωρίζονται. Σύμφωνα με τους υπολογισμούς των επιστημόνων της Αμερικανικής Διαστημικής Υπηρεσίας (NASA), o κομήτης θα κάνει μια περιφορά γύρω από τον Ήλιο στα μέσα Αυγούστου και μετά θα αρχίσει να απομακρύνεται ξανά προς τις παγωμένες εσχατιές του ηλιακού μας συστήματος.

          19:30 Mission Weltall - Das harte Training der Astronauten      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Am 6. Juni 2018 startete Alexander Gerst zum zweiten Mal zur Raumstation ISS. Als erster deutscher Astronaut ist er diesmal Kommandant der Mission "Horizons". Das will gut vorbereitet sein. Astronauten arbeiten hart, um sich auf Weltraummissionen vorzubereiten. Einer der wichtigsten Ausbildungsstandorte der Europäischen Weltraumorganisation ESA liegt in Köln. Im Europäischen Astronautenzentrum EAC sind mehr als 100 Mitarbeiter beschäftigt. Ehemalige Astronauten und Experten aus verschiedenen Ländern kümmern sich darum, dass die künftige ISS-Besatzung optimal vorbereitet ist. Chris Capelle zum Beispiel war zuständig für die Tagesplanung von Gerst. Der Belgier organisierte dessen Arbeitsalltag minutiös. Nur so ließen sich die weltweit stattfindenden praktischen und theoretischen Trainingsmodule koordinieren. Zum Beispiel der Auffrischungskurs fürs ISS-Modul, den Gerst bei Trainerin Serena Bertone absolviert hat. Neuestes Mitglied im Kreis der ESA-Astronauten ist ein weiterer Deutscher: Matthias Maurer. Der 48-Jährige durchlief 2009 das gleiche Auswahlverfahren wie Alexander Gerst. Doch erst 2017 erfolgte seine Berufung zum Astronauten. Maurer spricht von einem wahr gewordenen "Erwachsenentraum". Auch hinter Maurer stand ein ganzes Team an Trainern und Ausbildern. In Köln trieb ihn Personalcoach Nora Petersen täglich mehrere Stunden lang zur körperlichen Fitness. Unterwasser-Trainer Hervé Stevenin bereitete Maurer im Übungsbecken auf seine wichtigste Prüfung vor. Die fand im Johnson "Space Center Houston" der NASA statt. Dort musste der 48-Jährige reale Notfallszenarien lösen – im Raumanzug und unter Wasser. Die "ZDF.reportage" hat die Stationen dieser einzigartigen Ausbildung begleitet und traf die Ausbilder und die Astronauten jenseits des Blitzlichtgewitters um anstehende Raketenstarts. Der Film zeigt Alexander Gerst bei den Vorbereitungen für seinen historischen Einsatz im All und ist dabei, als Matthias Maurer in seine letzte und wichtigste Prüfung geht.

Palacio de Gobierno estatal cuenta con salón de juegos para niños y lactario


Teotihuacán en Línea. Toluca. Alfredo Del Mazo Maza entregó un lactario y una ludoteca (Lugar público que dispone de juegos y juguetes con los que los usuarios pueden jugar) en Palacio de Gobierno, e informó que estos espacios brindarán servicio gratuito, tanto a funcionarios públicos y a sus hijos, así como a ciudadanos que acudan a la sede del Poder Ejecutivo a realizar algún trámite. 
Luego de recorrer estos nuevos espacios, ubicados en las puertas 158 y 159 de Palacio de Gobierno, el mandatario mexiquense precisó que la ludoteca es la primera que existe en la historia de Palacio de Gobierno, y que permitirá a los funcionarios realizar sus labores sin contratiempos, “Pues ahora cuentan con un lugar para que personal capacitado cuide a sus hijos, quienes también podrán divertirse, aprender y convivir con otros menores, en un sitio seguro”.
“Acabamos de hacer entrega de la ludoteca, la primera ludoteca que existe en Palacio de Gobierno, aquí en Toluca,  para que todos los funcionarios que vienen a trabajar e, incluso, quienes visitan palacio, puedan tener un espacio en donde pueden dejar a sus niños un rato, para que jueguen, aprendan, se diviertan, para que puedan estar conviviendo, en lo que las servidoras públicas y los servidores públicos realizan sus actividades cotidianas”, señaló.
La  ludoteca brindará servicios como apoyo en tareas, inglés, pláticas de prevención, ajedrez, talleres de manualidades para  niños de entre tres y doce años de edad, y estará a cargo de personal del Consejo Estatal de la Mujer y Bienestar Social (Cemybs).

Acompañado por los Secretarios de Salud, Desarrollo Social y Justicia y Derechos Humanos, Gabriel O’Shea, Eric Sevilla y Rodrigo Espeleta, respectivamente, así como por la Vocal Ejecutiva del Cemybs, Melissa Vargas Camacho, el gobernador Del Mazo también entregó un lactario, donde  las mamás que laboran en Palacio de Gobierno podrán alimentar a sus bebés en un sitio privado, o bien, guardar leche materna para cuando regresen a sus hogares

Preparan actividades de los Pueblos Indígenas


Teotihuacán en Línea. Toluca. Instaurado en 1994 por la Asamblea General de las Naciones Unidas, el 9 de agosto se celebra el Día Internacional de los Pueblos Indígenas, fecha que sirve para generar mecanismos de protección para los pueblos indígenas, pero también para resaltar la diversidad cultural de estos grupos en nuestro estado como las etnias mazahua, tlahuica, matlazinca, nahua y otomí.
“Derivado de lo anterior, los próximos 9 y 10 de agosto, el Gobierno del Estado de México, a través de la Secretaría de Cultura mexiquense, en coordinación con el Consejo Estatal para el Desarrollo integral de los Pueblos Indígenas del Estado de México (CEDIPIEM) y con el apoyo de la Comisión Nacional para el Desarrollo de los Pueblos Indígenas, llevará a cabo una doble Jornada dedicada a mostrar la riqueza cultural y tradición de los cinco pueblos originarios del territorio mexiquense”, manifestaron voceros estatales.
Los visitantes al Centro Cultural Mexiquense podrán disfrutar de conferencias, lectura de poesía, presentaciones editoriales y musicales, juegos tradicionales, muestra gastronómica y proyecciones cinematográficas.
“Entre las actividades artísticas y culturales destacan la conferencia “Día Internacional de las Poblaciones Indígenas”, a cargo de Federico Arzate Salvador, y las presentaciones de los libros Comunidades en movimiento y El entorno cultural de los otomíes, de Antonio Machuca Ramírez y Margarita de la Vega Lázaro, respectivamente.
Además, los juegos “Lotería matlazinca” y “Lotería en lenguas indígenas” ofrecen una extraordinaria oportunidad de convivencia familiar y aprendizaje para público de todas las edades”, dijeron.

Habrá también lectura de poesía en lengua náhuatl y la proyección de cintas como “La otra conquista” y “Ánimas Trujano”

          Photos from space of the northern California fires      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Astronaut Alexander Gerst captured the above photo of Northern California's Carr and Ferguson fires five days ago. Below is the blanket of smoke from the Mendocino Complex Fire, the largest fire in California's history, as imaged by the Aqua satellite. Horrifying and tragic no matter how you see it.

From NASA:

Details of the actual fire as well as the ground are obscured in NASA's Aqua satellite image due to the heavy smoke coming off the Mendocino Complex fires as well as several other extremely large fires across California.

Today's total of acreage consumed by the River and Range fires is 300,086 and the fires are 47% contained. The Mendocino Complex Fire doubled in size over the last few days and the Ranch and River Fires combined near Clear Lake to form the largest fire in California history. Weather concerns continue with a warm and dry ridge of high pressure continuing over the fire areas today. Fuel moisture recovery continues to be poor overnight. A red flag warning is predicted from Thursday through Saturday. This is the 13th day of this ongoing blaze. Over 4,000 firefighters have been involved in fighting this fire. There are still over 10,000 structures that are in danger. Yosemite National Park has been closed indefinitely due to the fire.

          Analisis Konversi Nilai Lulusan Jerman ke IPK Indonesia (Standar Dikti)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Oleh: Teuku Bahran Basyiran
Sudah menjadi fenomena umum bagi warga Indonesia yang sedang mengarungi perkuliahan di luar negeri untuk bertanya-tanya tentang “Kira-kira bagaimana ya nilai kuliah aku di Jerman ini kalau dikonversi ke IPK Indonesia?”, “Pemerintah Indonesia melalui Kementerian Riset Teknologi dan Pendidikan Tinggi (a.k.a. Dikti) berharap lebih gak ya kepada lulusan made in Germany, sehingga konversi nilainya bisa jadi bencana buat aku (i.e. yang banyak nilai befriedigend atau ausreichend)?”, “Dikti menerapkan standar yang tinggi atau rendah ya?” dan rasa penasaran lainnya.
Hasil pencarian saya di internet, belum ada konversi resmi yang dipublikasi oleh Dikti untuk Jerman grading system. Dikti hanya mengumumkan Peraturan Menteri tentang Penyetaraan Ijazah dan Konversi IPK Lulusan PT Luar Negeri (Ristek Dikti, 2017). Namun demikian, ada audiensi kerjasama yang dilakukan oleh PPI Dunia dengan Dikti untuk memahai konversi nilai luar negeri seperti lulusan dari Belanda, USA, Perancis, Serbia, Maroko, Tunisia, Mesir, Korea Selatan, Taiwan, Malaysia, Brunei, etc (PPI Dunia, 2015). Sayangnya, mereka tidak mengupas tentang sistem penilaian Jerman di program tersebut. Karena itu, saya tertarik untuk menelisik akan hal ini dan ingin berbagi kepada teman-teman. Perlu digarisbawahi bahwa apa yang saya tulis ini bukan output yang pasti benar, karena ini hasil analisis dari informasi yang saya dapat.

Secara umum, tingkatan penilaian di Jerman berlawanan arah dengan nilai IPK. Nilai tertinggi 1.0, nilai threshold untuk lulus sebuah matakuliah 4.0, dan yang paling rendah 5.0. Di program Doktor S3 (i.e. PhD/Promovierende), ada nilai 0.0-0.7 yang bisa diajukan ke Examination Office atau prüfungsamt untuk mendapatkan Summa Cum Laude, sedangkan Magna Cum Laude untuk nilai 1.0. Saya coba membandingkan skema penilaian dan keterangan klasifikasi nilai antara Jerman dan Indonesia:

Interval nilai yang paling krusial bagi banyak pelajar di Jerman adalah 2.7-4.0. Bagaimana kalkulasi Dikti untuk nilai “B” atau 3.00 di IPK Indonesia terhadap nilai lulusan Jerman? Apakah 2.7, 3.0, atau 4.0? Banyak yang beranggapan, 2.7 merupakan threshold untuk kategori nilai “baik”. Tapi ada pengalaman dari salah satu alumni S1 UGM dan S2 Jerman yang mengatakan nilai “B”/3.00 di Indonesia berbanding lurus dengan 3.0 di Jerman. Jadi ekuivalensi penilaian kedua negera bertemu di kategori nilai tersebut. Berikut saya kutip tabel dari situs Magister Manajemen UGM untuk konversi nilai Jerman ke Indonesia (OIA MM UGM, 2018):

Dari table di atas bisa disimpulkan nilai Jerman 2.7, 3.0, dan 4.0 berturut-turut sama dengan nilai Indonesia “B+”, “B”, dan “C”. Ternyata ini lebih baik dari dugaan umum para calon pemimpin Indonesia yang kuliah di Jerman yang memprediksi ketiga nilai tersebut ekuivalen dengan “B”, “C”, dan “D” secara berturut-turut. Setali tiga uang, kesimpulan yang sama juga dapat ditemukan dengan melakukan simulasi konversi nilai di setiap grade level Jerman ke US Grade (diadopsi Indonesia menjadi sistem IPK) melalui GPA calculator (Foreign Credits, 2018):

Di sisi lain, standar konversi yang agak tinggi bisa ditemukan jika grade dihitung dengan menggunakan Bavarian Formula (TUM, 2018). Dalam simulasi, saudara diharuskan untuk mengisi maximum grade (4.00) dan minimum passing grade (2.00) di Indonesia, baru kemudian isi dengan IPK yang ingin dikonversi. Dengan estimasi ini, nilai “B” di Indonesia proporsional dengan nilai 2.5 di Jerman. Sebenarnya, secara umum formula ini lebih sering dan lebih tepat digunakan untuk mengkonversi IPK Indonesia ke GPA Jerman. Dengan asumsi IPK Indonesia sama dengan US grade, hasil implementasi metode ini untuk setiap tingkatan nilai (kolom “tertiary”) serta korelasi linearnya dengan persentase jawaban benar dalam ujian (kolom “Percentage”) adalah sebagai berikut (Wikipedia, 2018):

Lantas, metode kalkulasi yang mana yang kredibel dan bisa dipercaya? Untuk ketentraman batin, saya pribadi berpegang teguh dengan standar konversi MM UGM dengan didasari beberapa alasan: (1) UGM merupakan salah satu dari 3 institusi pendidikan tinggi terbaik di Indonesia; (2) Banyak lulusan UGM yang melanjutkan studi di Jerman; (3) Standar konversinya “ramah lingkungan” dengan nilai batas aman “B” di sistem Indonesia sama dengan nilai 3.0 dan 3.3 di Jerman; dan (4) Tidak jauh berbeda dengan berbagai estimasi US GPA di internet seperti Foreign Experts, WES Tools, etc.
Meskipun demikian, saya berharap ke depan Kementerian Ristek-Dikti agar mempublikasikan table konversi nilai dari GPA Jerman ke IPK Indonesia. Ini bisa sangat bermanfaat bagi teman-teman pelajar di Jerman untuk dapat berestimasi selama menjalani kuliah dan memasang target nilai tertentu. Selanjutnya, dengan IPK yang baik, mereka yang memiliki keinginan untuk berkontribusi kepada bangsa dan negara ini dapat bersaing secara kompetitif di dunia kerja bersama dengan lulusan dalam negeri.

When NASA's InSight lander began its journey to Mars on May 5th, two tiny satellites tagged along for the ride — CubeSats called MarCO-A and MarCO-B. CubeSats are a small and relatively inexpensive type of spacecraft, and they tend to use off-the shelf technologies. In recent years, dozens of them have been launched into low-Earth orbit by scientists, students, and businesses alike. The MarCOs, however, are the first CubeSats to travel into deep space, and they could pave the way for a ne

          Segir breytingu á mengunarvörnum bíla óheimila      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Fyrirtæki hér á landi hafa að undanförnu boðið bíleigendum að taka úr sambandi mengunarvarnarbúnað í því skyni að það auki kraft þeirra og draga úr eldsneytiseyðslu. Framkvæmdastjóri FÍB segir að þetta sé ólöglegt og eigi ekki að líðast. Tímarit FÍB greindi fyrst frá. Fyrirtæki í bílaiðnaði hafa undanfarið auglýst á vefsíðum sínum aðgerð á bifreiðum sem snýr að því að taka úr sambandi mengunarvarnabúnað - svokallaðar sótagnasíur, EGR-ventla og AD-blue hreinsibúnað í þeim tilgangi að auka afl vélanna og minnka eldsneytiseyðslu. Framkvæmdastjóri FÍB segir að þetta auki mengun frá ökutækjunum og óvíst sé hvaða áhrif þetta hefur á vél bílsins. „Ég tel að menn hafi sofið þarna á verði því að það er verið að auglýsa þetta í blöðum og á netinu. Fólki finnst það spennandi að geta dregið úr eyðslu og jafnvel aukið kraft bíla sinna með til þess að gera einfaldri aðgerð. En þarna er um vafasaman verknað að ræða og við vörum sterklega við því,“ segir Runólfur Ólafsson, framkvæmdastjóri FÍB. „Menn eru að ná niður eldsneytiseyðslu en í leiðinni er verið að auka magn svokallaðra sótagna og níturoxíða í útblæstri ökutækja sem eru þau útblástursefni sem eru lýðheilsulega hættulegust. Þetta er í rauninni eitthvað sem á ekki að líðast,“ bætir Runólfur við. Runólfur segir að svipaðar aðgerðir þekkist ekki í nágrannalöndunum og að skoðunarstöðvar þurfi búnað sem leiði aðgerðina í ljós.  „Að okkar mati er þetta aðgerð sem í mörgum tilvikum getur verið ólögmæt og ólögleg og hugsanlega skaðað ökutækin. Þannig að þetta er eitthvað sem að við teljum að eigi að vera til sérstakrar skoðunar hjá Samgöngustofu og skoðanastofunum og því miður virðist vera misbrestur á því,“ segir Runólfur jafnframt. Samgöngustofa segir þetta mál falli undir uppfærða skoðunarhandbók skoðunarstöðva sem unnið er að í samræmi við nýja tilskipun frá Evrópusambandinu. Áætlað er að hún verði komin í notkun í vor. Sú skoðunarhandbók mun fela í sér breytingar á aðferðum við skoðanir ökutækja. Samgöngustofa lítur alvarlegum augum sé búnaði breytt þannig að það uppfylli ekki reglugerð um gerð og búnað ökutækja. Endurforritun á ökutæki sé ekki heimil feli slík breyting í sér að mengunarvarnabúnaður virki ekki sem skyldi.

          Dr. Rex John LeBlanc      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Dr. Rex John LeBlanc, 86, passed away peacefully Friday, August 3, 2018 at his home in Lafayette, surrounded by his family.
Funeral services will be held Saturday, August 11, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. at Fountain Memorial Funeral Home in Lafayette. Father Bryce Sibley, Pastor of Our Lady of Wisdom Catholic Church, will officiate. A rosary will be recited by Deacon Frank Cormier on Friday, August 10, 2018 at 2:30 p.m. at Fountain Memorial Funeral Home in Lafayette. Visitation will be Friday, August 10, 2018 from 3:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Saturday, August 11, 2018 from 8:00 a.m. until the time of service.
Dr. LeBlanc was a devoted son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, and a member of the Acadiana community. He brought nurture, compassion, and fun to his interactions with family, friends, colleagues, and acquaintances alike, and was well loved in return by all who knew him.
Dr. LeBlanc was born in Abbeville, Louisiana in 1931. Growing up, he loved playing football at Abbeville High School and football remained a passion throughout his life. From 1951 to 1955, during the Korean War, he served in the United States Navy. He was proud to be a medic for the Marine Corps, but it was his time in the Psychiatric Ward of the San Diego Hospital that moved him to start a career in mental health.
He earned his bachelor’s degree from University of Southwestern Louisiana (now University of Louisiana, Lafayette, ULL), and continued playing football while there. He went on to earn his doctorate degree from Baylor University in Waco, Texas. His Baylor legacy includes training primates for NASA to test the effects of space travel on motor coordination.
He worked as a professor of psychology and an experimental psychologist at ULL for 20 years, and was renowned for both encouraging and entertaining fellow faculty and students. While there, he collaborated on projects with the New Iberia Primate Research Center, and with Louisiana mental health services to establish the Pollux House for runaway girls.
He met Sonja Faye Mallet while teaching at ULL, and they were married in 1964. Rex and Sonja shared a deep compassion for others and a love of family and children. They had four children together, and Sonja later joined him in the mental health field. Rex and Sonja had a weekend get-away camp in Vermillion Parish where they loved to entertain family, friends, and colleagues, including the hosting of annual Super Bowl parties; his friends bestowed awards upon him over the years for best crawfish étoufée and barbeque.
After retiring from ULL, Dr. LeBlanc took an administrative position at the Acadiana Mental Health Clinic. He also conducted psychological testing for local schools and clinical psychologists until last year.
Dr. LeBlanc’s community and professional affiliations included the Krewe of Gabriel, the Krewe of Oberon, and the American Psychological Association. He enjoyed music, literature, movies, and local festivals. He was highly respected and well-liked. He will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and colleagues.
Dr. LeBlanc is survived by his beloved wife of 54 years, Sonja LeBlanc of Lafayette; their children, Michelle LeBlanc of Falls Church, VA and her partner, Lawrence Benade, Rex John LeBlanc II of Broussard, LA and his wife, Kelli, Andrea LeBlanc of Los Angeles, CA and her husband, Jan Chaitas, and Stephen LeBlanc of New Orleans, LA; one sister, Dorothy LeBlanc of Baton Rouge, LA; three grandsons, Jean-Paul Pierre LeBlanc, Aiden Rex LeBlanc and Ian James LeBlanc; honorary daughters, Lynn Smith and Sandra Frederick; and numerous dear nieces, nephews and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, John Adelbert and Azilie Lege LeBlanc; and his siblings, Eunice LeBlanc, Eric LeBlanc, and Darnella Milliman.
Pallbearers will be Rex John LeBlanc, II, Stephen LeBlanc, Lynn Smith, Eddie Milliman, Jan Chaitas, and Larry Benade.
The family wishes to thank everyone who supported them and Dr. LeBlanc this year, with special thanks to the staffs at Lafayette General Medical Center, Lafayette Extended Care, and Lafayette Physical Rehabilitation Hospital.
Memorials may be made in Dr. LeBlanc’s name to the Alzheimer’s Association, 225 N. Michigan Ave., Floor 17, Chicago, IL, 60601, (504) 613-6505, www.alz.org, or NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) Acadiana via NAMI Acadiana, PO Box 51903. Lafayette, LA, 70505-1903, (337) 504-4752, or email at nami@namiacadiana.org.
Fountain Memorial Funeral Home and Cemetery at 1010 Pandora St. in Lafayette, (337) 981-7098, is handling arrangements.

          Osteoporosis Therapeutics in Asia-Pacific Markets to 2024 Market Report; Launched via MarketResearchReports.com      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

MarketResearchReprots.com has announced the addition of “Osteoporosis Therapeutics in Asia-Pacific Markets to 2024 - Growth Driven by ongoing Transition from Anti-resorptive Agents to Anabolic Therapies, Rising Prevalence, and Growing Awareness” research report to their website www.MarketResearchReports.com

Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/08/2018 -- Osteoporosis Therapeutics in Asia-Pacific Markets to 2024 - Growth Driven by ongoing Transition from Anti-resorptive Agents to Anabolic Therapies, Rising Prevalence, and Growing Awareness

Summary
Osteoporosis is a "silent epidemic" and as per the WHO declarations, it is a priority health issue. Osteoporosis is a disruption of bone architecture and decrease in bone mass, leading to a number of complications including increased chances of bone fractures and reduced bone strength. The most common sites of osteoporosis are the spine, hip and forearm, although it also affects other body parts.

The chronic nature of the disease, which requires ongoing treatment, relatively high annual cost of therapy (ACoT) of premium therapies, increasing prevalence and awareness about the disease among the patients over a period of time, and growing demand for mainly anabolic therapies, with only one anabolic therapy currently available in the market, have made osteoporosis treatment a highly lucrative market.

The osteoporosis therapeutic market has become very competitive due to the high number of new drug approvals, although the majority of them are incremental innovations of existing therapies. Competition is fierce, particularly among bisphosphonates and selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs), which are mostly used as first-line therapy and dominate the treatment market for osteoporosis patients.

Lack of effective and safe therapeutic options to treat osteoporosis was the major reason for development of currently marketed premium anabolic therapies. The competition among the premium therapies is expected to intensify during the forecast period due to expected launch of pipeline products. Additionally the expected launch of biosimilars will add fuel to the intense competition and make it tough for premium therapies to gain market share in the forecast period.

Patient compliance for osteoporosis therapies is a major unmet need, as the disease is asymptomatic until a fracture occurs and requires ongoing treatment. Drug delivery is crucial in the choice of medication.

Most medicines are administered orally, while others are administered intranasally or through injections. Medications with decreased dosing are often the preferred options. Therefore convenient and safe administration without significant compromise of therapy efficacy remains an unmet need.

Scope
- The current Asia-Pacific osteoporosis market contains novel products, including a humanized anti-sclerostin mAb, a synthetic peptide analog of human PTHrP, and a recombinant peptide and analogue of PTH.
- What are the competitive advantages of the novel drugs over current marketed drugs?
- Bisphosphonates and SERMs dominate the osteoporosis market. However, unmet needs exist in terms of safety and efficacy.
- Will the drugs under development fulfill the unmet needs of the osteoporosis market?
- The pipeline contains a range of molecule types and molecular targets, including those that are well established in osteoporosis, and novel, first-in-class therapies. There are over 136 active pipeline molecules, and most of the late-stage investigational drug candidates feature improved dosing regimens and administration routes in comparison to currently marketed products and combination therapies.
- Which classes of novel drugs are most prominent in the pipeline?
- What is the potential for pipeline products to address unmet needs in the osteoporosis market?
- Will the pipeline address unmet needs related to limited anabolic therapies for osteoporosis patients?
- Analysis of clinical trials since 2006 identified that the failure rates of osteoporosis molecules were highest in Phase III, with the overall attrition rate for osteoporosis standing at 83%.
- How do failure rates vary by stage of development, molecule type, and molecular target?
- How do other factors, such as average trial duration and trial size, influence the costs and risks associated with product development?
- Over the 2017-2024 forecast period, the Asia-Pacific osteoporosis therapeutics market is expected to increase in value at a compound annual growth rate of 5.9%.
- Which markets make the most significant contribution to the current market size?
- What are the epidemiology trends in these markets?
- Will new market entrants lead to substantial changes in annual therapy costs?
- How will immunotherapies such as Prolia contribute to growth?
- How will different treatment usage patterns impact growth in the five assessed Asia-Pacific markets?
- How will the annual cost of therapy and market size vary between the five Asia-Pacific markets?
- What effect will the patent expirations of currently branded therapies have on market value?
- A rising osteoporosis prevalence population and the uptake of newer therapies will lead to significant market growth over the forecast period, despite the launch of biosimilars.
- Will the launch of biosimilars or emerging pipeline molecules threaten the commercial success of existing drugs?
- Various drivers and barriers will influence the market over the forecast period.
- What are the barriers that limit the uptake of premium-priced therapeutics in the assessed countries?
- Which factors are most likely to drive the market in these countries?
- Licensing deals are the most common form of strategic alliance in the osteoporosis therapeutics market, with deal values ranging from under $10m to over $200m.
- How do deal frequency and value compare between target families and molecule types?
- What were the terms and conditions of key licensing deals?

Reasons to buy
- Understand the clinical context of osteoporosis by considering epidemiology, symptoms, etiology and pathophysiology, diagnosis, prognosis, treatment guidelines and options, and local and national registries.
- Identify the therapeutic strategies, products, and companies that dominate the current marketed products landscape and recognize gaps and areas of unmet need.
- Identify key pipeline trends in terms of molecule type, administration route, molecular target, and novelty.
- Consider market opportunities and potential risks by examining trends in osteoporosis clinical trial size, duration, and failure rate by stage of development, molecule type, and molecular target.
- Recognize the late-stage pipeline molecules that have demonstrated strong therapeutic potential in osteoporosis by examining clinical trial data and multi-scenario product forecast projections.
- Compare treatment usage patterns, annual therapy costs, and market growth projections for India, China, Australia, Japan and South Korea.
- Discover trends in licensing and co-development deals concerning osteoporosis products and identify the major strategic consolidations that have shaped the commercial landscape.

Spanning over 138 pages "Osteoporosis Therapeutics in Asia-Pacific Markets to 2024 - Growth Driven by ongoing Transition from Anti-resorptive Agents to Anabolic Therapies, Rising Prevalence, and Growing Awareness" report covers Introduction, Marketed Products, Product Pipeline, Clinical Trial Analysis, Multi-Scenario Forecast, Market Dynamics (Drivers and Barriers) of Osteoporosis Therapeutics Market, Deals and Strategic Consolidations, Appendix.

          Sizzling New Evidence on Martian Streaks      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

In this exciting press release, USGS scientist, Colin Dundas, provides evidence that seasonal dark streaks on warm Martian slopes, called recurring slope lineae (RSL), are something other than salty water, as scientists originally thought and hoped for. Colin is also the lead author in the Nature GeoScience publication which contain the gritty details of these magnificent findings. I can hardly wait until you discover what Colin had to say.

          Sols 1909-1910: Driving “home” for the holidays      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Sol 1905 Navcam

Sol 1903 Mastcam Arran

Today’s planning session kicked off with an important decision about where to drive and how that will set us up for exciting science over the holidays.  After much discussion, the team decided to return to some familiar yet intriguing rocks that we explored last week, visible in the above Navcam image.  These rocks show a lot of color variations and alteration features (as seen in the above Mastcam image), and we’re curious how they fit in the overall stratigraphy at Vera Rubin Ridge.  The other main event in today’s plan is a SAM wet chemistry experiment on the Ogunquit Beach sample.  This is a very power hungry activity, so we had to keep our other remote sensing activities in check.  The team planned two Mastcam mosaics to document the context of the site we’re driving back to, and to investigate similar color variations in an outcrop to the southeast.  After a busy night of SAM activities, Curiosity will spend the second sol driving back toward an area named “Lismore.”  During the drive we’ll take a bunch of MARDI images to document the terrain beneath the rover, and then we’ll take our typical post-drive Navcam and Mastcam mosaics to prepare for targeting on Wednesday.  In the afternoon, Curiosity will acquire two Navcam movies to monitor the atmosphere and search for clouds.  I’ll be on duty on Wednesday, so I’m looking forward to seeing some familiar rocks and preparing for the long holiday plan!

          Sol 1904-1905: Curiosity's Arm Workout      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

ChemCam RMI image of fine-scale layers in a rock.

I was on downlink for ChemCam on Wednesday, so I was busy analyzing the latest data while the uplink team decided what to do for sols 1904 and 1905. We had some nice data, including a gorgeous image of a finely-layered rock named "Trotternish" (shown above).

The sol 1904 plan started with some Mastcam and Navcam atmospheric observations, followed by ChemCam on the targets "Oban", "Talisker", and "Laphroaig". That is followed by a MAHLI "goniometer" observation of Oban. A goniometer measures the amount of light scattered from a surface at different angles, so when we say we have a MAHLI goniometer measurement, it means lots and lots of images of the same target from precisely spaced intervals. It gives Curiosity's arm a workout and delivers a nice data set that can be used for detailed photometry and to create a 3D reconstruction of the target. In addition to the goniometer observation, MAHLI also did normal observations of Oban and Talisker. APXS then did overnight observations on both targets.

On Sol 1905, Mastcam had a documentation image of Talisker, and a full multispectral observation of Oban. Mastcam also had a couple of mosaics of targets "Leadhills" and "Lismore" followed by a MARDI image to document the terrain before we move on.


          Wonder No More: Back to the Moon We Go!      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Inquiring minds have wanted to know if astronauts will ever go back to the Moon, and if so, when? Neil Armstrong’s words “The eagle has landed" were uttered 45 years ago. Astronauts Gene Cernan and Jack Schmitt took the most recent American steps on the Moon, in 1972. Twelve astronauts have left their boot prints on the lunar surface, but since then, some people have wondered why astronauts haven’t been back to dig deeper into lunar scientific investigations and endeavors. Inquiring minds need wonder no further! On December 11th President Trump authorized NASA to send astronauts back to the moon and eventually to Mars.


          Sols 1899-1901: SAM Evolved Gas Analysis      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The plan for this weekend is to finish up the investigation of Vera Rubin Ridge stop #9 and drive toward the next stop.  On Sol 1899, Mastcam will acquire multispectral observations of possibly hematite-rich outcrops at "Farr" and the Sol 1897 contact science target "Wick."  Both ChemCam and the Right Mastcam will observe "Muck," another Sol 1897 contact science target, and new rock targets named "Gala" and "Lagavulin."  Mastcam will also take standard color images of interesting blocks named "Moffat" and "Cape Wrath."  Then more of the Ogunquit Beach sample will be dropped into SAM for an overnight evolved gas analysis on Sols 1900 and 1901.  The goal is to measure the amounts of various noble gases in the sample in order to determine when the minerals in the sand were formed. 

Just before sunrise on Sol 1900, ChemCam will again attempt to detect frost on the "Sandwick" soil target that was observed during the day on Sol 1898.  Navcam will search for clouds above the rover just after sunrise, then only REMS measurements and a few engineering activities are planned before the SAM solid sample analysis, which requires a significant amount of power. 

The drive is scheduled for Sol 1901, followed by the usual post-drive imaging to enable more contact science in the next plan.  Finally, the AEGIS software will be used to autonomously select an outcrop target and observe it with ChemCam.

Sol 1866 Mastcam

It was a good weekend on Mars.  Curiosity spent the weekend exploring a beautiful outcrop of sedimentary rocks (shown in the above image) as part of our continued investigation of the middle and upper parts of Vera Rubin Ridge.  Images like these will help us figure out the environment in which these rocks were deposited.

Today’s two-sol plan is focused on additional imaging of a different part of this outcrop to better constrain the sedimentary structures and the transport directions that they record.  We planned a large Mastcam stereo mosaic of the outcrop seen in this Navcam image, as well as a ChemCam RMI mosaic to get even higher resolution imaging of a small portion of the section.  The plan also includes MAHLI and APXS observations of the target “Volksrust” to characterize typical bedrock in this location, as well as a number of environmental monitoring observations to investigate the spectral characteristics and dust content of the atmosphere.  On the second sol, Curiosity will drive toward our next outcrop and prepare for more contact science and imaging.  Can’t wait to see what the next stop will hold!

          Dawn Spacecraft Contribution and Fate      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Halloween day prompts a chilling question: If you were a spacecraft, which fate would you prefer? Would you choose to remain in a stable orbit forever around Ceres or would you prefer to crash into Saturn and burn?

The Cassini spacecraft crashed into Saturn and was engulfed in flames in September 2017, while Dawn’s fate, projected for 2018, will be to remain in a stable orbit around Ceres once it runs out of hydrazine fuel. Until then, Dawn will continue to explore and transmit the latest and greatest observations about the rocky, icy, dwarf planet.

Ceres Photos

Dawn acquired these two images of Ceres on February 19 at a distance of 28,000 miles in its RC2 orbit. Photo Credit: NASA,JPL,CALTECH,/UCLA,MPS.DLR, and IDA.

The Dawn spacecraft was launched by NASA in September 2007, and was the first spacecraft to orbit both Vesta and Ceres. Dawn entered Vesta's orbit in 2011 and has now been in orbit around the dwarf planet, Ceres, since March 2015, capturing a great deal of new photos and enriching scientific study. Scientist Mike Bland of the USGS Astrogeology team makes use of these high resolution images and has made some very interesting observations about Ceres’ surface morphology. Don’t be the last one to find out what Mike’s observations are in the excerpt.

Excerpt: NASA’s Dawn spacecraft entered Ceres orbit in March of 2015 and has (to date) attained global imaging at resolutions as high as 410 m/pixel. In contrast to some pre-Dawn predictions [1], these images reveal a heavily cratered surface. The persistence of pristine crater morphologies over geologic time provides direct constraints on Ceres’ near-surface composition and structure, and requires a relatively high-viscosity near-surface more consistent with a thick, frozen rock regolith (more rock than ice) than the relatively pure water ice shell suggested by theoretical interior models [2, 3]. Other more exotic compositions with high viscosity are also possible. Read more.


          Sols 1852-1853: Feeding SAM some sand      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

MSL drove over 20 meters on Sol 1850, to an area with lots of bedrock exposed.  We had several nice targets to choose from, but were limited in what we could plan because we want to prepare for a SAM evolved gas analysis (EGA) of sand from "Ogunquit Beach," which requires significant power.  We are planning only 2 sols today, to get synced back up with "Mars time" on Monday, so will not be driving this weekend. 

Despite the power constraints, we were able to plan a lot of activities today.  Sol 1852 will start with Navcam searches for clouds and dust devils, followed by Mastcam mosaics of the expected path ahead (southward).  Then ChemCam and Right Mastcam will observe bedrock target "Balfour" and a block named "Ripon."  Late that afternoon, MAHLI will acquire a full suite of images of Balfour before APXS is placed on it for an overnight integration.  We considered brushing Balfour before examining it with MAHLI and APXS, but to save time/power we decided not to.  The ChemCam laser often cleans dust off of the surface of rock targets, so we're hoping that will suffice on Balfour.

On Sol 1853, the long-awaited drop-off of Ogunquit Beach sample to SAM is planned!  This activity was delayed by the drill anomaly and the testing that followed, so we are excited to be planning it today.  If all goes well, the SAM EGA will be planned on Monday.

          Sols 1848-1849: How far we’ve come      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Sol 1846 Navcam

Today felt like any other planning day: a straightforward plan involving remote sensing, a drive, post-drive imaging, and some untargeted observations on the second sol.  Just a typical day in the office.  Maybe even an easy one.  It wasn’t until I sat down to write this blog that I fully processed how far we’ve come and just how awesome Curiosity’s “office” is.  I was looking through the drive imagery and came across this Navcam frame (posted above), which looks down on the Murray Buttes and Bagnold Dune Field, across Aeolis Palus and the northern rim of Gale crater.  It’s pretty spectacular to see just how much we’ve explored in 5 years.  But that was just a quick glance over Curiosity’s shoulder (or the RTG, which hangs off the back of the rover), because our sights were mostly set on the terrain ahead of us to choose where to go next. 

I was the Geology Science Theme Lead today, and it felt like any other planning day.  We came in to assess how the weekend activities completed, what targets we had in front of us, and which route we wanted to take to get to the next interesting feature on Vera Rubin Ridge.  The two-sol plan begins with a preload test of the rover’s drill.  Then Curiosity will acquire ChemCam and Mastcam observations of some nodular purple bedrock (target “Buck Reef”), and a unique gray-white vein or clast (target “Boomplaas”).  We also planned some Mastcam imaging of sedimentary structures exposed in cross-section (target “Eccles”) and to document the previously-acquired ChemCam AEGIS target.  Then Curiosity will drive ~15-20 m further south to investigate some mottled outcrop that we first noticed from orbit.  After the drive, we’ll take Mastcam and Navcam images to prepare for contact science in the next plan.  Data volume was a challenge today, so we had to think carefully about which images we need to have down in time to make decisions on Wednesday. On the second sol, Curiosity will wake up early to acquire a number of environmental monitoring observations to monitor clouds, dust, and wind.  Later on the second sol we planned another ChemCam AEGIS observation to automatically target bedrock in our new location.  Not bad for a typical day in the office!

              Red-hot voyage to sun will bring us closer to our star      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – A red-hot voyage to the sun is going to bring us closer to our star than ever before.

    NASA's Parker Solar Probe will be the first spacecraft to "touch" the sun, hurtling through the sizzling solar atmosphere and coming within just 3.8 million miles of the surface.

    It's designed to take solar punishment like never before, thanks to its revolutionary heat shield that's capable of withstanding 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Liftoff is set for the pre-dawn hours of Saturday for this first-of-its-kind mission to a star.

    "The coolest, hottest mission, baby, that's what it is," said Nicola Fox, the project scientist at Johns Hopkins University.

    Roughly the size of a small car, Parker will get nearly seven times closer to the sun than previous spacecraft. To snuggle up to the sun, it will fly past Venus seven times over seven years. Each flyby will provide an orbit-shaping gravity boost, drawing it ever closer to the sun and straight into the corona – the sun's outermost atmosphere.

    The closer, the better for figuring out why the corona is hundreds of times hotter than the sun's surface. Another mystery scientists hope to solve: What drives the solar wind? That's the steady, supersonic stream of charged particles blasting off the corona and into space in all directions.

    "There are missions that are studying the solar wind, but we're going to get to the birthplace," Fox said.

    Scientists expect the $1.5 billion mission to shed light not only on our own dynamic sun, but the billions of other yellow dwarf stars – and other types of stars – out there in the Milky Way and beyond. While granting us life, the sun also has the power to disrupt spacecraft in orbit, and communications and electronics on Earth.

    "This is where we live," said NASA solar astrophysicist Alex Young. "We have to understand and characterize this place that we're traveling through."

    The project was proposed in 1958 to a brand-new NASA, and "60 years later, and it's becoming a reality," said project manager Andy Driesman, also of Johns Hopkins, which designed and built the spacecraft. The technology for surviving such a close solar encounter, while still being light enough for flight, wasn't available until now.

    Parker's 8-foot heat shield is just 4½ inches thick. Sandwiched between two carbon sheets is airy carbon foam. The front has a custom white ceramic coating to reflect sunlight; it's expected to glow cherry red when bombarded by the extreme solar heat.

    Almost everything on the spacecraft will be behind this and thus in room-temperature shade while ducking through the jagged edges of the corona, without so much as a blister on its science instruments.

    The spacecraft will hit 430,000 mph in the corona at closest approach. That's equivalent to going from Washington, D.C., to Philadelphia in a split second. Or Chicago to Beijing in under a minute.

    This is the first NASA spacecraft to be named after someone still alive.

    Eugene Parker, 91, professor emeritus at the University of Chicago, predicted the existence of solar wind 60 years ago. He plans be at Cape Canaveral for the launch. United Launch Alliance's Delta IV Heavy rocket is providing the muscle.

    Parker got to inspect the spacecraft last fall. He said he's "holding my breath that everything goes well."

    "This is a journey into never-never land, you might say, where it's too hot for any sensible spacecraft to function," Parker told Johns Hopkins' Fox in a recent interview. "But some very clever engineering and construction have succeeded in making what looks like a very workable instrument."

    The spacecraft holds photos of Parker as well as a copy of his 1958 research paper on what he termed solar wind. Despite skepticism, NASA's Mariner 2 spacecraft proved Parker right in 1962.

    Also on board: more than 1 million names of space fans submitted to NASA this past spring.

    It's a fast-paced mission, with the first Venus encounter occurring less than two months after liftoff, in early October, and the first brush with the sun in November.

    In all, the spacecraft will make 24 elongated laps around the sun, closer than the orbit of Mercury, the innermost planet. The records will start falling with the first orbit, when the Parker probe comes within 15.5 million miles (25 million kilometers) of the sun and beats the current record holder, NASA's former Helios 2 spacecraft. Helios 2 got within 27 million miles (43 million kilometers) of the sun in 1976.

    Fox puts it this way: If the sun and Earth were on opposite ends of a football field, Mercury would be at the sun's 35-yard line, Helios 2 at the 29-yard line and the Parker probe at the 4-yard line.

    NASA's Messenger, which orbited Mercury from 2011 to 2015, provided insight into the solar wind but was too away.

    "You know something exciting is just around the bend, but where you're sitting you can't see what that is," Fox said. "So really the only way we can now do it is to do this daring mission to plunge into the corona."

    The Parker probe's final three orbits – in 2024 and 2025 – will be the closest. The spacecraft eventually will run out of fuel and, no longer able to keep its heat shield pointed toward the sun, will burn and break apart – except perhaps for the rugged heat shield.

    "It's a pretty tough shield," said Fox.

    Streetwear designer Heron Preston, who rose to fame thanks to a clothing line inspired by the uniforms of New York City’s Department of Sanitation, has surprised the fashion world once more. Preston has collaborated with NASA for a capsule collection to celebrate the organization’s 60th anniversary. The line includes 31 pieces featuring “the worm”, the iconic NASA logo used from 1976 to 1992. Many of the items resemble the pressure suits worn by astronauts on duty.

    #source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

    To promote the collection, Preston released a short film titled “Above the Clouds”. Shot in the course of six months with the help of film producer David Laven, the movie documents the creative process behind the collection and ends with the designer launching a mannequin wearing one of his pieces into the Earth’s stratosphere. “It all started with a text to Laven, saying that I wanted to shoot a video of my collection in a zero gravity plane. We eventually decided to take it higher”, said Preston on Instagram.

    The pieces are available on Preston’s website. Prices range between 266 US dollars (205 pounds) and 1548 US dollars (1195 pounds). Some items are already sold out.

              Viagem felina: obra mostra gatos sob efeito catnip, a erva-dos-gatos      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

    Do alto dos seus 13 anos, Static se contorce no chão, fazendo seu nome (“estático”) parecer irônico. Raisin, de 7 meses, não fica atrás. Também deixa seu nome (“uva-passa”) inadequado: o pelo escuro como as frutas torna-se salpicado de verde. Tudo isso é efeito da catnip, ou Nepeta cataria — planta que provoca uma euforia suave nos felinos, conhecida no Brasil pelo termo em inglês e também como erva-dos-gatos, erva-gateira ou gatária.

    Static e Raisin são só dois dos muitos bichos que Andrew Marttila registrou deitando e rolando em Cats on Catnip, livro recém-lançado nos EUA. Há cinco anos fotógrafo profissional especializado em gatos, Marttila é, claro, louco por eles. Sua mulher, Hannah Shaw, também — é chamada de Kitten Lady, “senhora dos gatinhos”, nome de seu projeto para acolher animais abandonados e incentivar adoções.

    Diversos dos peludos que estão em Cats on Catnip têm uma história assim. Chegaram a eles como recém-nascidos sem lar e depois encontraram uma família. “Na criação deste livro, pude visitar muitos dos nossos resgatados em suas casas adotivas e fiquei incrivelmente feliz”, conta o artista na abertura da obra.

    Catnip ou erva-dos-gatos
    é uma planta da família da menta e da hortelã.
    seu óleo, liberado quando ela é amassada ou mordida, é que atua em áreas do cérebro responsáveis pelo comportamento e pelas emoções

    Além de fotografia e solidariedade, o projeto reúne outro interesse de Marttila: neurociência, uma das áreas da sua graduação.

    Esclarecer como a erva atua nos gatos é um de seus objetivos. Apesar da comparação comum com a maconha, a Nepeta cataria é bem diferente. Sua família é a da menta e contém o óleo nepetalactona, liberado quando folhas e caules são mordidos ou amassados — por isso os bichanos esfregam o focinho e o corpo. A espécie não vicia, é fácil de ser plantada em casa e também está à venda em lojas veterinárias.

    “O óleo se liga aos receptores nasais do gato e estimula uma resposta que afeta várias áreas do cérebro, incluindo o hipotálamo e a amígdala, duas regiões que são fundamentais na regulação das respostas emocionais e comportamentais”, escreve Marttila. Assim, eles perdem aquela postura normalmente elegante e controlada e ficam “livres para serem bobos, excepcionalmente brincalhões e absolutamente doidões”.

    O efeito dura até 20 minutos. Mas alguns não têm tanta sorte. O fotógrafo advoga pelos gatos cujos donos não dão a erva ou oferecem “quantias insignificantes”. “Desde o início deste projeto, usei 1,4 quilo de catnip. Se tiver uma lição a transmitir, é isso: não seja mesquinho.”

    “Cerca de quatro em cinco gatos adultos reagem à catnip”, explica o fotógrafo Andrew Marttila. Os animais muito novinhos, em geral, não sentem seus efeitos. eles só aparecem depois de quatro a seis meses de idade"

              Η προειδοποίηση επιστημόνων για τη Σαντορίνη!!!      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


    Χάρη σε μια σύγχρονη επιστημονική μέθοδο που χρησιμοποιήθηκε για πρώτη φορά στην Ελλάδα, Έλληνες και ξένοι γεωεπιστήμονες κατάφεραν να «φωτίσουν» τις διαδικασίες που λαμβάνουν χώρα κάτω από τη Σαντορίνη, αλλά και γενικότερα στο σημείο σύγκρουσης της αφρικανικής με την ευρασιατική τεκτονική πλάκα.

    Η γεωχημική τεχνική επιτρέπει να βγουν χρήσιμα συμπεράσματα για το πώς λιώνουν οι πλάκες, καθώς η πρώτη καταβυθίζεται κάτω από τη δεύτερη.

    Η διεθνής ομάδα επιστημόνων, με επικεφαλής τον επίκουρο καθηγητή δρα Ιωάννη Μπαζιώτη του Γεωπονικού Πανεπιστημίου Αθηνών, που έκανε τη σχετική δημοσίευση στο περιοδικό "Lithos", εφάρμοσε την πρωτοποριακή γεωχημική μέθοδο έρευνας στα πετρώματα της Σαντορίνης.

    «Σκοπός της μελέτης αυτής», όπως δήλωσε ο κ. Μπαζιώτης στο Αθηναϊκό - Μακεδονικό Πρακτορείο Ειδήσεων, «ήταν να έρθουν σε επαφή δύο μεγάλοι, και συνάμα διαφορετικοί μεταξύ τους, κλάδοι της επιστήμης της Γεωλογίας. Ο κλάδος της Πετρολογίας-Γεωχημείας, μέσω της μελέτης της χημείας των πετρωμάτων, μας οδήγησε στο να απαντήσουμε ερωτήματα που απασχολούν το κλάδο της Γεωφυσικής-Σεισμολογίας».

    Η Ελλάδα, μία κατ' εξοχήν σεισμογενής χώρα, οφείλει την υψηλή σεισμικότητά της κυρίως στη σύγκλιση δύο τεκτονικών πλακών, συγκεκριμένα στην υποβύθιση της Αφρικανικής τεκτονικής πλάκας κάτω από την αντίστοιχη Ευρασιατική.

    Γι' αυτό, όπως λέει ο Έλληνας γεωεπιστήμονας, ο οποίος προ μηνών είχε συμμετάσχει σε αποστολή της NASA στην Ανταρκτική, «η κατανόηση του μηχανισμού ενός σεισμού στην πιο ενεργή σεισμικά περιοχή της Ευρώπης συνδέεται με την κατανόηση της συμπεριφοράς της ζώνης υποβύθισης της τεκτονικής πλάκας της Αφρικής μέσω της ανάλυσης των γεωφυσικών-σεισμολογικών δεδομένων».

    Όπως τόνισε στο Αθηναϊκό – Μακεδονικό Πρακτορείο Ειδήσεων, «είναι εξαιρετικά σημαντικό ότι υπήρξε συμφωνία μεταξύ των εκτιμώμενων συνθηκών που υπολογίστηκαν από τα πετρολογικά-γεωχημικά μοντέλα της νέας εργασίας, με τα υφιστάμενα γεωφυσικά δεδομένα που έχουν ήδη προκύψει από τοπικές σεισμικές καταγραφές».

    Η πλέον πρόσφατη μεγάλη έκρηξη της Σαντορίνης συνέβη τον 16ο ή 17ο αιώνα π.Χ. Σύμφωνα με τον κ. Μπαζιώτη, «μέλημα των επιστημόνων ήταν ανέκαθεν η αποκρυπτογράφηση της "καρδιάς" του ηφαιστείου της Σαντορίνης, αυτής της καρδιάς που στην περίπτωση του ανθρώπινου σώματος τροφοδοτεί με αίμα όλα τα ζωτικά όργανα, ενώ στην περίπτωση του ηφαιστείου τροφοδοτεί με μάγμα την επιφάνεια της γης. Πού βρίσκεται όμως ο μαγματικός θάλαμος της Σαντορίνης στον οποίο αποθηκεύεται το μάγμα; Και ποιες διαδικασίες προηγούνται της συγκέντρωσης του μάγματος στο θάλαμο;».

    Στα ερωτήματα αυτά επιχείρησε να απαντήσει η νέα μελέτη στην οποία συμμετείχαν ερευνητές από το Τμήμα Γεωχημείας της Υπηρεσίας της Ιαπωνίας για τις Επιστήμες της Γης και της Θάλασσας (Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology), το Τμήμα Γεωλογικών και Πλανητικών Επιστημών του Ινστιτούτου Τεχνολογίας της Καλιφόρνια (Caltech) των ΗΠΑ και το Ινστιτούτο Ορυκτολογίας του γερμανικού Πανεπιστημίου του Μίνστερ.

    Οι επιστήμονες πήραν δείγματα από τα ηφαιστειακά πετρώματα στην επιφάνεια της Σαντορίνης και τα ανέλυσαν με πλήθος τεχνικών ως προς τα θεμελιώδη συστατικά τους (ορυκτά) και τη γεωχημεία τους (κύρια στοιχεία και ιχνοστοιχεία). Στη συνέχεια, χρησιμοποιώντας - για πρώτη φορά στην Ελλάδα - ένα ειδικό γεωχημικό μοντέλο που αναπτύχθηκε από τον Ιάπωνα καθηγητή Jun-Ichi Kimura, προχώρησαν σε προσομοίωση της συμπεριφοράς των κύριων στοιχείων και των ιχνοστοιχείων.

    Με τον τρόπο αυτό, προέκυψε η εκτίμηση ότι η τεκτονική πλάκα της Αφρικής απελευθερώνει ρευστά από ένα βάθος περίπου 145 χιλιομέτρων. Αυτό το βάθος ταυτίζεται με εκείνο που προκύπτει από τη μελέτη των σεισμικών δεδομένων (σεισμοί ενδιάμεσου βάθους), σκιαγραφώντας έτσι την ανώτερη επιφάνεια της υποβυθιζόμενης τεκτονικής πλάκας της Αφρικής κάτω από την Ευρασιατική.

    Στη συνέχεια, τα ρευστά που απελευθερώνονται από το βάθος των 145 χιλιομέτρων, ακολουθούν μία σχεδόν κατακόρυφη πορεία προς τα πάνω σε μικρότερα βάθη, φθάνοντας μέχρι το βάθος περίπου των 56-69 χιλιομέτρων. Αυτό το βάθος, το οποίο προέκυψε από τα γεωχημικά μοντέλα, βρίσκεται σε αρμονία με τη σεισμικότητα που παρατηρείται στα 70 χιλιόμετρα (το κατώτερο όριο των σεισμών μικρού βάθους) και αποδίδεται στο όριο λιθόσφαιρας-ασθενόσφαιρας.

    Σύμφωνα με τη μελέτη, από το βάθος των 56-69 χιλιομέτρων ο μανδύας της Γης λειώνει, δημιουργώντας τήγματα που συγκεντρώνονται σε ένα προσωρινό μαγματικό θάλαμο. Κάποια στιγμή αυτά αρχίζουν να ανεβαίνουν σε μικρότερα βάθη και να συγκεντρώνονται στο μαγματικό θάλαμο κάτω από το ηφαίστειο της Σαντορίνης, ο οποίος βρίσκεται σε εκτιμώμενο βάθος 0,7 χιλιομέτρων, πριν τελικά αυτά εξαχθούν στην επιφάνεια κατά τη διάρκεια μιας έκρηξης του ηφαιστείου.

    Ο Δρ. Μπαζιώτης τόνισε πως «με τη μελέτη μας, χρησιμοποιώντας πετρολογικά και γεωχημικά δεδομένα, συμβάλλουμε στη βαθύτερη κατανόηση της λειτουργίας της ζώνης υποβύθισης στον ελληνικό χώρο. Επιπλέον, η μεθοδολογία που ακολουθήθηκε, μπορεί να εφαρμοστεί γενικότερα σε οποιοδήποτε αντίστοιχο σύστημα ζώνης υποβύθισης και σύγκλισης τεκτονικών πλακών της Γης, με απώτερο σκοπό μία εν τω βάθει κατανόηση της δομής ενός συστήματος ζώνης υποβύθισης».

              How to see the Perseid meteor shower peak this weekend      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    How to see the Perseid meteor shower peak this weekendOne of the best meteor showers of the year peaks this weekend, and with any luck, you should be able to catch at least a few of the shooting stars for yourself.  The Perseid meteor shower is expected to peak the night of August 12, into the wee hours of the morning on August 13.  If you happen to be in a light-pollution-free area with nice weather, you'll probably be able to see about 60 or 70 meteors streaking through the moonless sky, according to NASA estimates.  SEE ALSO: The best places to stargaze around the world "The Perseids appear to radiate from the constellation Perseus, visible in the northern sky soon after sunset this time of year. Observers in mid-northern latitudes will have the best views. You should be able to see some meteors from July 17 to August 24, with the rates increasing during the weeks before August 12 and decreasing after the 13th," NASA said in a skywatching video. "Remember, you don't have to look directly at the constellation to see them. You can look anywhere you want to — even directly overhead." The best time to see those meteors is at around 11 p.m. ET until dawn the next morning.  You won't need any special equipment to catch the shower, either. Just make sure you have a clear view of a large swathe of the sky and be patient. Half of watching a meteor shower is waiting around for them to appear. “Relax, be patient, and let your eyes adapt to the darkness,” Kelly Beatty, Sky & Telescope senior editor said in a statement. "The Perseids will put on a great show." While you'll get the best meteor rates in a rural area, far from light pollution, you still might be able to see some meteors from a city or suburb.  If you are in a city, try to get somewhere at least somewhat sheltered from lights, maybe a park or backyard. Your meteor rates will be lower, but it's possible to see at least a few of the brightest meteors over the course of a few hours.  The Perseids happen each year as Earth passes through the trail of dust left behind by the comet Swift-Tuttle, which makes a full orbit of the sun every 133 years.  Those bits of cosmic dust fall into our atmosphere, creating the bright streaks we see as meteors in the night sky.  If you're unable to see the Perseids this year in person, you can always watch them online. The Slooh observatory will host a livestream of the shower starting at 5 p.m. ET on Sunday.  WATCH: Wait, who owns the moon? We found out

              The drug maker behind the first FDA-approved medication derived from marijuana has revealed how much it'll cost      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    cannabis

    • On a call with investors this week, GW Pharmaceuticals revealed the price of Epidiolex, its newly-approved, marijuana-based drug for rare forms of epilepsy.
    • Designed to treat two rare forms of childhood epilepsy using a marijuana compound called CBD, the drug is the first medication of its kind to get FDA approval.
    • The person leading the company's commercialization efforts in the US said the goal is to keep the price of the drug on par with other epilepsy medications.

    A marijuana-derived drug that recently became the first of its kind to win federal approval is not going to be cheap.

    Called Epidiolex, the drug is designed to treat two rare forms of childhood epilepsy using a cannabis compound called cannabidiol (or CBD)

    On a call with investors this week, British-based GW Pharmaceuticals, who makes the drug, said it would cost roughly $32,500 per year. The medication does not contain THC, the well-known psychoactive component of marijuana responsible for the drug's characteristic high.

    Julian Gangolli, who leads GW's commercialization efforts in the US, said the price point would keep Epidiolex in line with other epilepsy drugs and was largely based on feedback from insurance companies.

    Gangolli also said that he expected the wait time to receive the medication — after patients get a prescription from a clinician — to be three weeks, on average. But before any prescriptions for Epidiolex can be written, the Drug Enforcement Administration must reschedule its active ingredient, the marijuana compound CBD.

    Currently, CBD is scheduled alongside marijuana as a schedule 1 drug with "no currently accepted medical use." Beginning on June 25 when Epidiolex was approved, the agency had 90 days to reschedule or reclassify it as a schedule 2, 3, 4, or 5 substance.

    "We don't have a choice on that," DEA public affairs officer Barbara Carreno told Business Insider in June. "It absolutely has to become Schedule 2, 3, 4, or 5."

    'A breakthrough drug for an awful disease'

    Epidiolex's approval in June came on the heels of several months of promising research results and a positive preliminary vote from the Food and Drug Administration this spring. Experts are hopeful that the approval will unleash a wave of new interest in the potential medical applications of CBD and other marijuana compounds.

    “This approval serves as a reminder," Scott Gottlieb, the FDA commissioner, said in a statement shortly after the approval, "that advancing sound development programs that properly evaluate active ingredients contained in marijuana can lead to important medical therapies."

    In three large clinical trials which the FDA considered before giving Epidiolex the official green light, researchers presented strong evidence that the pharmaceutical-grade CBD in the medicine had the power to significantly curb some of the worst symptoms of two of the hardest-to-treat forms of epilepsy, known as Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome.

    "This is clearly a breakthrough drug for an awful disease," John Mendelson, a panel member and senior scientist at the Friends Research Institute, said at a public FDA meeting this spring that was called to discuss the scientific merits of the drug.

    But although the green light means that patients will soon be able to access Epidiolex with a doctor's prescription, many will also likely turn to less expensive sources of CBD, such as those sold in marijuana dispensaries. Researchers and advocates caution against this, however, with the caveat that it's impossible to verify that what's in those products is actually pharmaceutical-grade CBD.

    Gangolli added that with insurance, Epidiolex could be substantially cheaper than dispensary CBD.

    "The cost of a co-pay [for Epidiolex] is significantly — or could be significantly — less onerous and burdensome than the cost of the product either over the internet or from dispensary," Gangolli said.

              30 Years After Explosion, Challenger Engineer Still Blames Himself      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Thirty years ago, as the nation mourned the loss of seven astronauts on the space shuttle Challenger, Bob Ebeling was steeped in his own deep grief. The night before the launch, Ebeling and four other engineers at NASA contractor Morton Thiokol had tried to stop the launch. Their managers and NASA overruled them. That night, he told his wife, Darlene, "It's going to blow up." When Challenger exploded 73 seconds after liftoff, Ebeling and his colleagues sat stunned in a conference room at Thiokol's headquarters outside Brigham City, Utah. They watched the spacecraft explode on a giant television screen and they knew exactly what had happened. Three weeks later, Ebeling and another engineer separately and anonymously detailed to NPR the first account of that contentious pre-launch meeting. Both were despondent and in tears as they described hours of data review and arguments. The data showed that the rubber seals on the shuttle's booster rockets wouldn't seal properly in cold
              FOTOS: Aprecian incendios en California desde el espacio      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Los incendios más grandes en la historia del estado de California son tan devastadores que pueden ser vistos desde el espacio.

    El astronauta Ricky Arnold, quien se encuentra a bordo de la Estación Espacial Internacional, compartió algunas fotografías, a través de su cuenta de Twitter, donde se observan columnas de humo en gran parte del territorio ubicado al oeste de Estados Unidos.



    Días antes, su colega Alexander Gerst también difundió un par de imágenes donde se muestra el humo que provoca el fuego intenso en la bahía y en el norte de California.



    Miles de bomberos trabajan a marchas forzadas para tratar de apagar las llamas en los incendios de Carr Fire y Mendocino Complex, así como los 16 focos de incendios en California.

    El fuego en Mendocino Complex es considerado el más grande porque ha arrasado con más de 117 mil hectáreas, lo que es equivalente a 10 veces el área del territorio de San Francisco. No obstante, el de Carr Fire ha sido más devastador, al causar la muerte de siete personas y acabar con mil 600 inmuebles.

    El incendio que tomó su nombre del condado de Mendocino inició el pasado 27 de julio con dos focos junto al lago Clear. Las autoridades afirman que la creación de Ranch y River Fire es un suceso único, pues se formaron con una hora de diferencia a muy poca distancia.

    Las autoridades alertaron que la emergencia por Mendocino Complex, donde las llamas alcanzan hasta 90 metros de altura, podría extenderse durante todo el mes de agosto, ya que el clima cálido y con fuertes vientos complican las labores de los bomberos.

Hovorím si, že teda tento mesiac bude fotiek menej, nevadí...A keď ich začnem dávať dohromady, je toho viac a viac, až nakoniec nestíham a mesačné zhrnutie je tu týždeň po limite. Ale vy máte tieto posty radi, preto ich chcem vždy pripraviť čo najlepšie, aj keď si dám trochu načas. Tak poďme na to!

    Júl bol super. Nemám k tomu čo viac povedať. Za pochodu si to až tak neuvedomujem, lebo človek má deň za dňom na tanieri aj starosti a nervy, ale takto, keď píšem tento mesačný denník a dívam sa na svoje dni spätne, som veľmi vďačná.

    不要电击!不要电击!不要电击!(大误)

    大脑中大多数神经细胞不会再生,因此保存在神经网络中的记忆肯定是随年龄减少。

    如何无视时间,拥有超级好记忆呢?

    总结起来,脑力锻炼、体育锻炼、良好睡眠(三期睡眠好),都必不可少。


    为什么这么说?

    可以先看一下人脑的记忆究竟怎么回事。

    人的记忆分成“显性”(explicit )和“隐性”(implicit) 记忆两大类。

    显性记忆就是能用语言表达的,又分成 “陈述型记忆”和 “事件记忆”。陈述型记忆的内容主要是知识,比如你背诵的唐诗。事件记忆是经历,比如回忆前天你早饭吃的是什么。

    隐性记忆则主要是“程序记忆(procedural memory)”,比如学会骑车、滑雪、跳舞这些连续动作,以及学会的顺口溜、外语 。隐性记忆一旦形成可以稳定终生,所以你在小时候学会骑车,即使日后多年不骑车,但一接触自行车还是马上能骑。

    显性和隐性记忆在大脑中的关键节点:

    A 显性记忆的关键点是海马体(图中紫色结构),隐性记忆的关键节点是基底节(图中绿色结构)右上角插图标示海马和基底节在大脑中的位置。

    B 人脑的标本的冠状切面(即两耳之间的切面,平面的位置由图A中的虚线标示)。海马体和基底节与大脑皮层形成高度互动的网络,把记忆储存下来。(大脑皮层即B图中的大脑外圈,颜色比较深的那层)

    C 人脑海马体(右)和真的海马(左)比较,体积形状都相似。

    也就是说,当你在广场上跳“小苹果”时,用的是程序型记忆;休息的时候和昨天刚认识的大妈打招呼,用的是事件记忆。而进一步和大妈套近乎,讲解股市“K线”,用的是陈述型记忆。


    那么,如何减缓记忆衰退的速度?

    大脑肯定随着年龄不断衰退,而体力和脑力锻炼是减缓记忆衰退的有效武器。

    脑力锻炼主要靠多动脑,学习有挑战性的新知识最有益。老年大学和退休后公益志愿活动都是极好的脑力锻炼。

    虽然大脑中大多数神经细胞是不能再生的,死一个少一个,但记忆是存储在神经细胞之间的连接点上的,一个神经细胞与其他神经细胞间有几千个连接点。一个细胞死亡不会丢失一个记忆,而只会由于相关节点的丢失使记忆减弱,模糊。

    上图是海马中神经细胞的局部特写:

    彩色小球为神经细胞体,拖着的尾巴是神经纤维。左上方的彩色细线是来自其他神经细胞的纤维。神经细胞通过纤维与其他神经细胞进行广泛联系。海马中有些神经细胞与几百万个其他细胞相连。记忆就寄存在细胞之间相互联系的接点(突触)上。

    脑力锻炼可以不断活跃与记忆有关的神经网络,强化原有的连接点并创造新的连接点,刷新由于细胞死亡造成的记忆损失。衰退是持续渐进的,而锻炼也是持续渐进的补偿过程。

    很多研究认为,变老不是被动的,而是退化与对抗退化不断相持不下的主动过程,与幼儿的发育、病后恢复非常类似,只不过发生在不同的年龄段。

    体育锻炼与脑力锻炼同样重要,主要在以下三个方面:

    一是增进健康,消灭高血压、高血脂、高血糖。心血管健康会让大脑受益。大脑享受全身20%的供血。脑中每根血管都负责一个重要脑结构的功能,那一根堵塞都会造成严重后果。

    第二方面是改善心理健康。人的情绪是靠大脑皮层下的神经结构控制的。这些神经结构控制人的兴奋、发怒、幸福和沮丧等感觉。人年老后,难免某些神经环路会“搭错线”,造成各种极端情绪。极端情绪能使很多激素异常释放,直接破坏记忆的形成。同时也压抑免疫系统和身体修复的功能,加速衰老。运动可以有效地让人从这些短路的死胡同里绕出来。

    第三方面是运动对增强记忆有直接作用。锻炼者学习和记忆的能力明显超过不锻炼者【1】。因为运动可以增加脑中掌管显性记忆的关键结构“海马体” (Hippocampus)的血流量和体积。具体说来,由于海马体直接处理事件记忆,所以户外运动时海马体必须一丝不苟地工作,否则就会找不到家。因此,海马体就得到明显的锻炼。另外,运动时肌肉会释放一种叫作cathepsin B 的蛋白分子,可以促进海马体分泌更多的神经营养因子,提高记忆能力【2】。

    需要注意的是,程序型记忆虽然是终生不忘的,但用年轻时的程序型记忆指挥老年的肌肉却可能会出问题。

    因为程序记忆存储的是肌肉收缩的时间顺序和强度,当肌肉关节衰退后,原来的运动定势就可能造成错误,出现“摔倒”这样的事故。高龄老人死亡率最高的原因不是心血管疾病,不是癌症,而是摔倒后骨折造成的卧床。卧床对人的健康是巨大的打击。因为站立本身需要活动大量肌肉,心血管需要根据姿态不断调节血压。宇航员在太空的无重力环境与卧床相似,即使是年轻人在这样的条件下过几天,也会站不稳,肌肉退化,骨骼中的钙大量流失。【3】

    因此,持续的体力活动对老人防止跌倒,保持独立生活的能力是非常重要的。


    睡眠对记忆有多重要?

    目前,神经科学流行的一种说法是“记忆两步论”:显性记忆需要通过睡眠来巩固。

    第一步发生在白天,人的大脑不断处理信息,随机把一部分日常经历的事件记下来。一天下来,脑内很多部分(比如海马体)就记满了,就需要通过睡眠来擦除大部分无用的记忆而巩固有用的部分。

    第二步发生在夜间的睡眠中,海马体会不断地和大脑皮层共同活动,回放白天的记忆并记住其中一部分 。我们都有这样的经验:一觉醒来觉得昨天发生的很多事件被捋顺,记得更清楚了。这展示了睡眠对记忆的作用。

    在夜里,人的睡眠有几个循环,每个循环约90分钟,先是浅睡(术语叫睡眠一期和二期),几十分钟后进入深睡(三期)最后是梦境(快速动眼期),如此循环几次。

    老年人睡眠时间减少,主要是深睡的第三期变短,而损失的三期睡眠正是巩固记忆的“黄金睡眠”期。

    一夜睡眠的时相和分期

    上: 睡眠分期的脑电指纹。睡前闭眼但清醒时脑电是8-12 赫兹的阿尔法波。进入第一期浅睡后,脑电波变慢(西塔波)。睡眠加深到第二期时,有偶尔的高波和纺锤波。深睡(第三期)以高幅度,低频率的慢波脑电为主。梦境时,脑电与清醒时相似。

    下:睡眠各期在一夜间的循环。第一个小时中从浅睡,第二期到第三期,之后出现梦境。然后再进入第二期第三期。这个循环在一夜中出现几次。

    有个著名的实验,让一群年轻的哈佛学生在一天里变为记忆很差的老人:

    首先,让这些学生在睡眠实验室里,边睡边实时监测他们的脑电信号。当三期慢波睡眠的脑电指纹出现时,实验人员就摇晃床,把三期睡眠破坏成浅睡。如此一夜几次晃床,虽然总睡眠时间没变,但第二天测试时,结果却十分惊人——年轻聪明的哈佛学生竟然变成了老年大学的学生,他们的逻辑能力和显性记忆都大大下降。而被试学生自己却一点没有睡眠不佳的感觉。

    不过,该实验的效果是短时的,只要第二天不干扰三期睡眠,聪明的哈佛学生还是聪明的哈佛学生。这个实验说明了睡眠对记忆的重要性。【4】

    睡眠缺乏除了影响记忆,还会明显地有害健康。一夜失眠就会使血压升高,增加血糖和血内的应急激素,并抑制免疫系统。良好睡眠的重要性超过一切体育和脑力锻炼。

    因此,任何年龄的人都要尽一切努力保证充足的睡眠。体育运动和规则生活可以帮助睡眠,而中老年人为了有足够的高质量睡眠,也需要有足够强度的体育锻炼。

              Repotnya Polisi Menelusuri Jejak Pembunuh Caddy Cantik di Blora      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Liputan6.com, Blora - Bukan bom, senjata tajam atau senjata api berbahaya yang disita polisi dalam kasus pembunuhan caddy cantik. Korek api, ya hanya sebuah korek api yang disita Polres Blora karena korek api itu digunakan untuk membakar sang caddy cantik.

    Kapolres Blora AKBP Saptono menjelaskan bahwa selain korek api yang biasa digunakan tersangka untuk merokok, ada sepeda motor dan mobil yang ikut disita.

    "Pengungkapan ini, berawal dari penemuan seorang wanita yang dibakar di hutan jati di wilayah Kunduran, Kabupaten Blora, 1 Agustus 2018," kata Kapolres AKBP Saptono SIK MH, Kasat Reskrim AKP Heri Dwi Utomo Sh MHum, dalam gelar kasus di Mapolres Blora, Selasa, 8 Agustus 2018.

    Polisi lalu menyelidiki dan mecari informasi. Sebuah tim khusus dipimpin Kasat Serse menelusuri sejumlah tempat di Semarang. Pencarian ke Semarang didasari adanya gigi dan kulit korban.

    "Indikasinya, kemungkinan besar bukan orang blora. Semua Bhabinkamtibmas sudah mengecek ke semua warga, tidak ada yang mengaku kehilangan sanak keluarganya," kata Kapolres Blora.

    Keadaan itu memaksa pengembangan ke luar kota. Berbekal ciri-ciri utama fisik caddy cantik itu yakni berumur 20-25 tahun dan gigi menggunakan pemutih. Melihat kondisi fisik korban, terlihat bahwa ia adalah perempuan yang suka merawat diri.

    "Tim lalu menyasar ke cafe-cafe, hotel, dan semua tepat nongkrong anak muda. Alhamdulillah kita ketemu seorang teman korban. Disampaikan pula bahwa temannya telah beberapa hari tidak ada kabar setelah bertemu dengan orang," kata AKBP Saptono.

    Dari informasi itu, polisi mengembangkan pencarian. Akhirnya menghubungi ibu korban berbekal anting yang ditemukan di TKP.  Melihat anting itu, ibu korban membenarkan milik anaknya. Disimpulkan, jenasah yang dibakar adalah Ferin Diah Anjani, sang caddy cantik.

    Simak video menarik terkait berita berikut di bawah:

    Pengembangan berlanjut karena korban tidak serumah dengan orang tuanya. Ia kos bersama seorang teman perempuan. Dari temannya inilah petunjuk keberadaan si pembunuh mulai terbuka.

    "Melalui DM Instagram, temannya itu kencan dengan seorang laki-laki pada 31 juli.  Mereka kemudian beralih komunikasi melalui WA. Setelah 3 hari berkomunikasi, mereka berjanji bertemu di salah satu hotel di Semarang. Belakangan diketahui laki-laki itu adalah Kristian Ari Wibowo," kata Kapolres Blora.

    Berdasar pemeriksaan awal oleh penyidik diketahui bahwa Kristian datang lebih dulu dengan sepeda motor. Dua jam berselang, Kristian keluar kamar.

    "Namun ia kembali lagi ke hotel dengan mobil Honda Jazz. Entah apa yang dilakukan di kamar, setelah 1 jam Kristian keluar lagi," kata Kapolres.

    Ferin Diah Anjani ternyata sudah di dalam mobil. Di perjalanan, Kristian membeli bensin dan melanjutkan perjalanan ke Blora.

    Dari pengakuan tersangka, saat berada di kamar, Kristian menyebut sudah berhubungan badan sekali. Kemudian ingin berfantasi dengan menyiapkan lakban. Awalnya dilakban tangannya dan Ferin tidak berontak. Dilanjutkan dengan dilakban kakinya. Saat itulah korban berontak dan menyebabkan pelaku panik dan membekap mulutnya.

    Korban melawan hingga jatuh dan kepalanya terbentur lantai. Korban lalu diangkat lagi ke tempat tidur. Kristian ingin memastikan tak ada teriakan, akhirnya korban dibekap bantal.

    "Terlihat bekas luka di kepala korban. Setelah tidak berdaya korban dibungkus menggunakan selimut hotel," kata Kapolres.

    Segala perhiasan yang menempel di tubuh korban akhirnya diambil. Mulai dari gelang, cincin, liontin, kalung.

    Setelah terungkap polisi menyita sepeda motor, helm dan mobil Kristiyan Ari Wibowo. Karyawan Hotel Chanti Semarang itupun ditahan di Mapolres Blora.


              Ari, Atlet Gulat Banten yang Melangkah Jadi Paskibraka 2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Liputan6.com, Jakarta Di balik wajah kalem dan pemalu, calon Paskibraka 2018 dari Banten, Muhamad Ari Setiawan, rupanya atlet gulat. Ari memang 'orang baru', tapi jam terbang mengikuti kejuraan tidak bisa dianggap remeh.

    Siswa SMA Negeri 6 Kota Serang ini baru setahun menekuni gulat. Sebelum terpilih sebagai wakil Banten untuk Paskibraka Nasional 2018, Ari mengaku mengisi hari-harinya dengan banyak pertandingan gulat.

    "Ikut Kejurnas baru sekali, tahun lalu. Satu bulan kemudian ikut Popnas (Pekan Olahraga Pelajar Nasional), Piala Gubernur Jatim, setelah itu kejurda atau Piala Gubernur Banten, dan terakhir Piala Gubernur Padang. Semua itu tahun 2017," ujar Ari kepada Diary Paskibraka.

    Awal mengenal gulat

    Gulat dan Paskibraka di Mata Ari Memiliki Kemiripan. Sama-sama Disiplin dan Banyak Peraturan yang Harus Dipatuhi. (Foto: M Fajri Erdyansyah)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

    Perkenalan Ari dengan olahraga gulat terjadi tanpa sengaja. Waktu itu, sepulang menyabet emas untuk lempar lembing dan perunggu untuk cabang olahraga tolak peluru, Ari melihat ada yang sedang latihan gulat.

    Saat sedang melihat-lihat itu, Paskibraka kelahiran 13 Februari 2001 ini dipanggil oleh seorang pelatih yang mengajak untuk bergabung.

    "Tidak langsung saya iyakan. Dua hari kemudian saya datang, saya lihat dulu, baru minggu selanjutnya ikut latihan," ujarnya.

    Tidak sedikit manfaat yang Ari peroleh dari gulat. Salah satunya, menurunkan berat badan.

    "Dulu saya gendut banget. Hampir 90 kilogram. Sekarang, berat badan saya 75 sampai 77 kilogram," kata Paskibraka yang menginginkan posisi sebagai pengibar sore hari.

     

    Gulat vs Paskibraka

    Lebih lanjut, banyak hal pula di Paskibraka yang sudah ia dapatkan terlebih dahulu dari gulat.

    "Gulat juga mengajarkan pentingnya disiplin dan on time. Jika dibilang latihan pagi, itu berarti jam 05.15 harus sudah di lapangan, dan sudah pemanasan," katanya.

    Table manner yang pernah diajarkan calon Komandan Pasukan kepada 68 orang Paskibraka Nasional, juga pernah Ari dapat dari latihan gulat.

    "Walaupun gulat, yang namanya makan enggak boleh berisik. Aturan di tempat latihan harus dipatuhi. Dalam hal pakaian pun, kita ada aturannya. Tidur di mes pun peraturannya tak berbeda jauh dari asrama Paskibraka," ujarnya.

     

    Perbedaan Gulat vs Paskibraka

    Sementara itu, perbedaan yang Ari rasakan antara gulat dan Paskibraka adalah saat latihan. Ari, mencontohkan, latihan gulat selama empat jam hanya boleh istirahat satu minum untuk minum dan ke kamar mandi, selain istirahat untuk solat dan makan siang.

    "Habis itu latihan lagi, sparing lagi, dan latihan teknik-teknik," kata Ari.

    "Kalau di Paskibraka, banyak istirahatnya, tidak terlalu capek, dan kalorinya tidak terlalu banyak terbakar," kata Ari menekankan.

    Ketekunan yang dia kerjakan saat latihan gulat, dibawa selama di Diklat Paskibraka 2018. Dia ingin bisa terpilih menjadi pasukan pengibar, sama halnya seperti pelatih gulat memilih Ari untuk ikut perlombaan.

    "Pertama main di kelas 85 kg, kelas paling berat. Kelas berat itu cuma ada dua orang, saya dan teman saya. Cuma teman saya ini, kalau di-sparing sama saya, kalah. Dia juga jarang latihan," kata Ari.

    Kemungkinan besar itu alasan pelatih sering memilih Ari ikut pertandingan. "Walaupun saat sparing sering juga imbang, saya juga sering kalah. Akan tetapi kalau latihan saya lebih rajin, makanya mungkin itu alasan pelatih memilih saya," kata Ari.

    Pengembangan berlanjut karena korban tidak serumah dengan orang tuanya. Ia kos bersama seorang teman perempuan. Dari temannya inilah petunjuk keberadaan si pembunuh mulai terbuka.

    "Melalui DM Instagram, temannya itu kencan dengan seorang laki-laki pada 31 juli.  Mereka kemudian beralih komunikasi melalui WA. Setelah 3 hari berkomunikasi, mereka berjanji bertemu di salah satu hotel di Semarang. Belakangan diketahui laki-laki itu adalah Kristian Ari Wibowo," kata Kapolres Blora.

    Berdasar pemeriksaan awal oleh penyidik diketahui bahwa Kristian datang lebih dulu dengan sepeda motor. Dua jam berselang, Kristian keluar kamar.

    "Namun ia kembali lagi ke hotel dengan mobil Honda Jazz. Entah apa yang dilakukan di kamar, setelah 1 jam Kristian keluar lagi," kata Kapolres.

    Ferin Diah Anjani ternyata sudah di dalam mobil. Di perjalanan, Kristian membeli bensin dan melanjutkan perjalanan ke Blora.

    Dari pengakuan tersangka, saat berada di kamar, Kristian menyebut sudah berhubungan badan sekali. Kemudian ingin berfantasi dengan menyiapkan lakban. Awalnya dilakban tangannya dan Ferin tidak berontak. Dilanjutkan dengan dilakban kakinya. Saat itulah korban berontak dan menyebabkan pelaku panik dan membekap mulutnya.

    Korban melawan hingga jatuh dan kepalanya terbentur lantai. Korban lalu diangkat lagi ke tempat tidur. Kristian ingin memastikan tak ada teriakan, akhirnya korban dibekap bantal.

    "Terlihat bekas luka di kepala korban. Setelah tidak berdaya korban dibungkus menggunakan selimut hotel," kata Kapolres.

    Segala perhiasan yang menempel di tubuh korban akhirnya diambil. Mulai dari gelang, cincin, liontin, kalung.

    Setelah terungkap polisi menyita sepeda motor, helm dan mobil Kristiyan Ari Wibowo. Karyawan Hotel Chanti Semarang itupun ditahan di Mapolres Blora.


              Ari, Atlet Gulat Banten yang Melangkah Jadi Paskibraka 2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Liputan6.com, Jakarta Di balik wajah kalem dan pemalu, calon Paskibraka 2018 dari Banten, Muhamad Ari Setiawan, rupanya atlet gulat. Ari memang 'orang baru', tapi jam terbang mengikuti kejuraan tidak bisa dianggap remeh.

    Siswa SMA Negeri 6 Kota Serang ini baru setahun menekuni gulat. Sebelum terpilih sebagai wakil Banten untuk Paskibraka Nasional 2018, Ari mengaku mengisi hari-harinya dengan banyak pertandingan gulat.

    "Ikut Kejurnas baru sekali, tahun lalu. Satu bulan kemudian ikut Popnas (Pekan Olahraga Pelajar Nasional), Piala Gubernur Jatim, setelah itu kejurda atau Piala Gubernur Banten, dan terakhir Piala Gubernur Padang. Semua itu tahun 2017," ujar Ari kepada Diary Paskibraka.

    Awal mengenal gulat

    Perkenalan Ari dengan olahraga gulat terjadi tanpa sengaja. Waktu itu, sepulang menyabet emas untuk lempar lembing dan perunggu untuk cabang olahraga tolak peluru, Ari melihat ada yang sedang latihan gulat.

    Saat sedang melihat-lihat itu, Paskibraka kelahiran 13 Februari 2001 ini dipanggil oleh seorang pelatih yang mengajak untuk bergabung.

    "Tidak langsung saya iyakan. Dua hari kemudian saya datang, saya lihat dulu, baru minggu selanjutnya ikut latihan," ujarnya.

    Tidak sedikit manfaat yang Ari peroleh dari gulat. Salah satunya, menurunkan berat badan.

    "Dulu saya gendut banget. Hampir 90 kilogram. Sekarang, berat badan saya 75 sampai 77 kilogram," kata Paskibraka yang menginginkan posisi sebagai pengibar sore hari.

     

    Gulat vs Paskibraka

    Lebih lanjut, banyak hal pula di Paskibraka yang sudah ia dapatkan terlebih dahulu dari gulat.

    "Gulat juga mengajarkan pentingnya disiplin dan on time. Jika dibilang latihan pagi, itu berarti jam 05.15 harus sudah di lapangan, dan sudah pemanasan," katanya.

    Table manner yang pernah diajarkan calon Komandan Pasukan kepada 68 orang Paskibraka Nasional, juga pernah Ari dapat dari latihan gulat.

    "Walaupun gulat, yang namanya makan enggak boleh berisik. Aturan di tempat latihan harus dipatuhi. Dalam hal pakaian pun, kita ada aturannya. Tidur di mes pun peraturannya tak berbeda jauh dari asrama Paskibraka," ujarnya.

     

    Perbedaan Gulat vs Paskibraka

    Sementara itu, perbedaan yang Ari rasakan antara gulat dan Paskibraka adalah saat latihan. Ari, mencontohkan, latihan gulat selama empat jam hanya boleh istirahat satu minum untuk minum dan ke kamar mandi, selain istirahat untuk solat dan makan siang.

    "Habis itu latihan lagi, sparing lagi, dan latihan teknik-teknik," kata Ari.

    "Kalau di Paskibraka, banyak istirahatnya, tidak terlalu capek, dan kalorinya tidak terlalu banyak terbakar," kata Ari menekankan.

    Ketekunan yang dia kerjakan saat latihan gulat, dibawa selama di Diklat Paskibraka 2018. Dia ingin bisa terpilih menjadi pasukan pengibar, sama halnya seperti pelatih gulat memilih Ari untuk ikut perlombaan.

    "Pertama main di kelas 85 kg, kelas paling berat. Kelas berat itu cuma ada dua orang, saya dan teman saya. Cuma teman saya ini, kalau di-sparing sama saya, kalah. Dia juga jarang latihan," kata Ari.

    Kemungkinan besar itu alasan pelatih sering memilih Ari ikut pertandingan. "Walaupun saat sparing sering juga imbang, saya juga sering kalah. Akan tetapi kalau latihan saya lebih rajin, makanya mungkin itu alasan pelatih memilih saya," kata Ari.

              寻找外星生命 瞄准这些信号就对了      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    李会超

    欧洲航天局近日公布的一项研究结果,推高了人们对火星生命的期待——雷达探测器发现火星内部存在液态地下水湖,这无疑为人们寻找火星生命增添了胜利的筹码。

    虽然对火星寄予厚望,但人们寻找生命的目光不限于太阳系内。随着天文学知识的不断积累,人类已经认识到地球所围绕的太阳不过是银河系中一颗普通的恒星。根据目前的观测,在银河系中有数亿颗恒星,而在整个宇宙中,共有200亿—2000亿个含有大量恒星的星系。在这样浩瀚的星海中,地球是否是特殊且唯一的?生命是否有可能诞生在太阳系内或其他恒星周围的行星上?为了解决这些问题,天文学家们开展了不少研究,并逐步发展出了一门名叫“天体生物学”的交叉学科。和那些希望通过不明飞行物(UFO)发现外星人的爱好者们相比,天体生物学家们寻找地外生物的主要手段是通过科学观测和探测寻找生命活动的迹象,并由此推断生命是否可能存在。

    有机物丰度:提示存在生命过程

    如果我们可以发射探测器到其他行星上,则可以在行星中搜寻与生命有关的物质,进而寻找生命曾经存在的痕迹。由于火星与地球的性质最为相近,对火星进行的着陆探测最多,科学家们已经陆续发现了一些与生命有关的物质。

    例如,对于地球上所有已知的生物,有机物是构成生命体的基本化学单元。如果火星上存在有机物,则意味着火星上可能存在适合生命产生的条件。今年5月,美国国家航空航天局(NASA)公布“好奇“号火星车在火星盖尔撞击坑中心的夏普山附近,发现了噻吩(CH4H4S)和二甲基硫醚(C2H6S)等有机物分子的存在,其丰度达到了10ppm(百分之一,相当于克/吨)。这样的有机物丰度与30亿年前地球上的有机物丰度基本相当,可能意味着当时火星和地球上正在发生一些相似的生物过程。此前,液态水存在的证据也曾在盖尔撞击坑附近被发现,因此本次有机物的发现增加了盖尔撞击坑曾是火星生命温床的可能性。

    实际上,早在上世纪七十年代人类刚刚有能力对火星进行着陆探测时,NASA就利用两艘在火星上着陆的“海盗”号探测器对火星的有机物进行了搜寻,却一无所获。后来,更加深入的分析发现有机物有可能在“海盗”号进行样品分析的过程中被破坏。而在设计“好奇”号火星车的分析过程时,就设法避免了类似问题的出现。然而,单凭有机物本身并不能完全证实生命的存在,因为陨石和一些地质过程也可能产生有机物。

    生物化石:劲爆但不够有力的证据

    在自然博物馆中,我们可以看到恐龙、三叶虫等史前动物的化石。通过化石的形状,我们可以辨认出这是一种动物而非其他自然现象形成的物质。

    1984年,一支美国的陨石搜寻队在南极洲发现一块磁体矿陨石,并将其编号为ALH84001。1996年,NASA的科学家在使用扫描电子显微镜对这块陨石进行分析后,惊奇地发现陨石中的一个结构体与细菌的结构十分相似。这些科学家认为他们发现了来自火星的细菌生物化石,并将结论发表在了《科学》杂志上。由于这一发现的内容十分直观,题材又相当“劲爆”,因而迅速被大众媒体大规模报道,将其视作地球以外存在生命的第一个确凿证据。时任美国总统比尔·克林顿还亲自在电视讲话中宣布了这一发现。

    然而,在有些科学家看来,这一发现还并不能完全证明火星存在生命。首先,形似细菌的结构体直径仅有20—100纳米,比目前所有已知的细菌体直径都要小。此外,有科学家在实验室中通过非生物过程得到了与陨石中结构体形态类似的结构。目前,科学界的共识是证实生命的存在不能单凭ALH84001中这样具备生物形态特征的结构,还需要其他的分析和证据支撑。

    大气成分:目前唯一可观测特征

    生命活动会改变行星大气的成分特征。在距今24亿多年以前,地球大气中仅含有微量的氧气。之后,由于生物的光合作用,地球大气中的氧气含量开始不断增加,最终达到了今天的水平。如果在其他行星的大气中发现了氧气,则可以推测这个行星中存在生命。一些细菌可能在代谢过程中释放甲烷,因此大气中的甲烷也可以作为生命存在的特征。如果某颗行星上甲烷的含量存在季节性的变化,则这颗行星上存在生命的可能性将会更高。此外,植物燃烧产生的一氯甲烷、植物腐败过程中产生的一氧化二氮,也可以作为生命存在的大气特征。

    2003年,火星快车探测器首次发现了甲烷在火星全球的广泛分布。据计算,火星上每年必须通过某些过程产生270吨的甲烷,才能维持火星大气中的甲烷浓度,而火星上现在或曾经存在的微生物则被认为是甲烷的可能来源之一。今年5月,NASA宣布“好奇”号在火星上发现了甲烷含量随季节的变化,为火星存在产甲烷微生物的假说增加了证据。

    大气特征可以通过各种望远镜的观测和光谱分析得到。当恒星的光线通过行星的大气层透射或反射后,其光谱特征会因为行星大气的成分而发生变化,通过变化情况与标准光谱特征数据库的对比,科学家们就能了解行星大气中的成分。由于我们尚没有能力向太阳系外的行星发射探测器,大气特征是目前唯一一种可以推测系外行星是否存在生命的生物特征。一拖再拖的詹姆斯·韦伯太空望远镜和美国、欧洲正在智利建设的巨型麦哲伦望远镜、欧洲极大望远镜,均具备观测系外行星大气光谱特征的能力。预计在2030年左右,对首批潜在的宜居行星的大气特征观测将开始。

    和其他的生物特征一样,大气特征本身也不足以完全证实生命的存在,因为非生物过程可能同样能产生类似的大气成分变化。因此,科学家们在研究过程中需要综合多种特征,进行深入分析,排除所有其他的可能性后,才能最终笃定地宣布某颗行星上一定存在生命。(作者系哈尔滨工业大学深圳校区博士后)

    PERSEIDS METEOR SHOWER
    Arkansas State Parks (and anywhere else it’s dark).

    It’s August, and that means it’s time again to look up and see the Perseids. The meteor shower is one of the most satisfying star show of the year, with around 100 shooting stars (but at times double that this year, what’s called an “outburst”). Peak viewing time for folks who’ve found a dark spot away from light pollution is between midnight and dawn Sunday, Aug. 12, according to NASA, but the Perseids put on a show up to and after that peak. As a plus, the moon will be new this weekend, thus providing a darker sky. Arkansas State Parks has organized a Perseids Meteor Shower Palooza: In Central Arkansas, see the stars from the middle of Lake Maumelle with a guided boat cruise from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday departing from Jolly Roger’s Marina ($12 adults, $6 children), and there will be free viewing from the beach 10 p.m.-midnight Monday at Woolly Hollow State Park in Greenbrier. In Southwest Arkansas, DeGray Lake State Park has scheduled a number of family events: kayak viewing from the lake from 7:30 p.m.-9:45 p.m. Thursday-Sunday ($15 adults, $10 children); a Perseids Meteor Safari on the golf course from 8:45 p.m.-9:45 p.m. Saturday and Sunday ($10 adults, $5 children); and the Night Owl Perseids Prowl Cruise from 10:30 p.m.-11:45 p.m. Saturday ($12 adults, $6 children). Check the State Parks calendar for other nighttime hikes this weekend, too. So what’s a meteor? We’re glad you asked. They’re icy space rocks from the Comet Swift-Tuttle that burn up when they hit our atmosphere, making for lovely streaks of light across the heavens. Reserve for Maumelle at 868-5806 and DeGray Lake at 865-5850. LNP

    TELEKINETIC YETI

    The duo Telekinetic Yeti is a medley of unlikely juxtapositions: It's just not that often that the word "duo" accompanies anything described as "stoner doom metal," let alone with the geographical qualifier "from Dubuque, Iowa." Check out album closer "Himalayan Hymn" from 2017's "Abominable" for a good example of how much sonic territory two dudes from The Hawkeye State can cover in 5 1/2 minutes. They're on tour with Kansas City heavy-rock barn-burners Hyborian, and joined on the bill by locals Fred and Shoe. SS

    FRIDAY 8/10

    STEPHEN CHOPEK

    8 p.m. The Undercroft.

    The first thing that caught my ear about Stephen Chopek wasn't so much what he'd done as who he'd done it with — as drummer for a few faves: Pimps of Joytime, Shannon McNally, Amy LaVere. In "Radio Caroline," those percussion propers reveal themselves in the perfect chug of his strumming, but the text — a true tale of an off-shore pirate radio station that broadcast from the open seas in the early 1960s to thwart BBC's regulations and broadcast monopoly — sounds more like a Pete Seeger tune than a Pimps jam, and it's well tailored for a tiny, underground listening room like The Undercroft. Bring along some cash to throw in for the Undercroft-brewed beer on hand, or for the 45 RPM vinyl with Chopek's "Radio Caroline" opposite "The Ballad of Cash & Dean." SS


    FRIDAY 8/10

    2ND FRIDAY ART NIGHT

    5-8 p.m., downtown galleries.

    The Butler Center galleries have adopted a new name: They'll now be called the Galleries at Library Square, so you'll know they're part of the Central Arkansas Library System. Now we've got that squared away, let's move on to the art: The new show there is from the Butler Center's collection of artworks and artifacts from the WWII Japanese-American internment camps at Rohwer and Jerome. "A Matter of Mind and Heart: Portraits of Japanese American Identity" will feature Henry Sugimoto's "Arrival at Jerome," on loan from Hendrix College in Conway. (Sugimoto was still interned when, with the help of Hendrix art professor Louis Freund, he first exhibited his work at Hendrix.) Also at the Galleries at Library Square is an exhibition of work by the Brewer art dynasty: Nicholas, Adrian and Edward.

    TIFFANY

    7 p.m. Park Plaza Mall. Donations of two canned goods.

    In July 1988, pop singer Tiffany Darwish had a piano power ballad, "Could've Been," in heavy rotation on the radio. What it could've been, at least chronologically speaking, was the denouement of the star-crossed love story that she sang about the year before, with a drum machine-heavy remake of Tommy James and the Shondells' 1967 chart-topper "I Think We're Alone Now." Also in July 1988: What was once an open-air shopping center reopened as Park Plaza Mall in midtown Little Rock, bolstered and bookended by a double dose of Dillard's, the department store headquartered here in Little Rock. To celebrate the anniversary, Darwish — better known by her first-name mononym Tiffany — will put on a free concert in the mall parking lot near the corner of Markham Street and University Avenue. Organizers are steadfastly committed to the theme; a Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtle (Michelangelo, specifically — the Miss Congeniality and self-identifying "party dude" of the TMNT personality quadrant) and a Hello Kitty character will be in attendance, and the mall's Sephora is booking appointments for full-face '80s makeovers. See Park Plaza Mall's Facebook page for the details, and bring along two canned goods for a drive called CANstruction, benefiting the Arkansas Foodbank. SS

    FRIDAY 8/10

    AMASA HINES, DOT, OR: BENEFIT FOR CYSTIC FIBROSIS FOUNDATION

    9:30 p.m. White Water Tavern. $10.

    What connects the three bands on this fundraising bill isn't essentially musical — they're as sonically disparate as the summer days are long — but kinetic. Amasa Hines' slow builds, alternately sparse and urgent; Or's mechanized, trance-like foreboding; and DOT's driving, beachy punk rock are all energies used for good here, benefiting the Arkansas chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. This one will sell out. Get tickets at lastchancerecords.us. SS

    SATURDAY 8/11

    RICKY SKAGGS

    7 p.m. Pulaski Technical College, Center for Humanities and Arts. $35-$120.

    They played it like a gag in 1961, scripting a 7-year-old kid to come up and tug on the hem of Lester Flatt's suit jacket in the middle of the Martha White-sponsored Flatt & Scruggs variety show. Instead of a punchline, though, a dapper Ricky Skaggs approached the microphone and peeled out "Foggy Mountain Special" on the mandolin, following it up with "Ruby" in his west Kentucky drawl, singing lyrics he was too young to embody: "I was sittin' in the shade/with a shovel and my spade/diggin' in the ground gold mine/Ruby, Ruby/Honey, are you mad at your man?" His stagecraft has assuredly caught up to his virtuosity; back then, he ran out of camera frame before the audience had a chance to applaud him. Now, he's accustomed to multiple standing ovations like the ones he and his band Kentucky Thunder got at the Ryman Auditorium last week. He's been a bluegrass traditionalist when it was cool, he's been a bluegrass traditionalist when it wasn't, and he's been a bluegrass traditionalist in some unlikely collaborations, throwing his mandolin into the mix with Phish, Ry Cooder, on Arkansas native Erin Enderlin's 2017 record "Whiskeytown Crier." He also lent his talents to a campaign event for Jason Rapert in 2014 — why, Ricky, why? Earlier this year, Skaggs was honored with an induction to the Country Music Hall of Fame — years too late, Garth Brooks and others would claim. He'll play at UAPTC just a few weeks before accepting yet another title as an inductee to the 2018 International Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame. Get tickets at uaptc.edu/charts. SS

    SATURDAY 8/11

    'MADE' reception

    6-9 p.m. Boswell Mourot Fine Art.

    Four great Arkansas artists in one place: That's what Boswell Mourot has going through Sept. 1. Matthew Lopas, associate professor of art at Hendrix College, sees the world through a fish-eye lens, his interiors and landscapes distorted into swirling panoramas. Alice Andrews paints the waterfalls and rocky outcrops of her Ozarks home with soft shapes of blue-greens and warm browns. In this show, Dennis McCann, a retired firefighter and winner of multiple awards for his pastels, uses complementary shades of orange and aquamarine to capture abstract underpinnings in representation. Eleanor Dickinson is an artist whose work we just don't see enough of: Gorgeous washes combined with drawing and abstracted architectural features, her take, perhaps Paul Klee-inspired, on places she's been. Matthew, Alice, Dennis and Eleanor — MADE of special stuff. LNP

    SATURDAY 8/11

    FOUL PLAY CABARET

    10 p.m. White Water Tavern. $10.

    Two weeks ago, when Foul Play Cabaret brought "The Modern Show" to a one-time brothel on Bathhouse Row in downtown Hot Springs called Maxine's, a young man apologized to me for having stopped so suddenly in my direct sight lines, frozen and presumably stultified by the magnetism between Violet D'Vine and Rosa Lee Bloom during a particularly intense duet. He'd come to hang out and maybe throw some darts and, I think, was surprised to find a burlesque show going on — and surprised at its thrust. "I thought cabaret was, like, the girls in the line kicking their legs up," he explained later on, mimicking a Rockettes routine with his fingers. That night, eschewing the tried-and-true Alberto Vargas pin-up incarnate aesthetic the burlesque troupe channels beautifully and often, Foul Play's dancers twirled and somersaulted instead to FKA Twigs and Katy Perry. Ruby Lead did an entire act using only a crimson swath of fabric and her jet black locks to create mesmerizing geometry, Jezebelle Jaxx revived an entire audience's commitment to yoga class and Doris Night opened the evening with a magnificently technicolor Sally Rand, her wrists twirling two enormous feather fans in time with the throbbing bass beats. It's artful and sex-positive and immaculately prepared and rehearsed, and the cost of admission is a fraction of what lounges in metropoli like Vegas and Paris are charging for shows of the same rank. If you can't catch them in this Capitol View/Stifft Station legend of a bar, consider attending the ensemble's return to Maxine's in Hot Springs on Saturday, Aug. 18, when they'll put up "Foul Play Loves the '80s," complete with hair scrunchies, leg warmers, a spandex routine called "Aerobics with Violet" and a guest appearance from Dallas dancer Vivienne Vermuth. SS

    TUESDAY 8/14

    GODSMACK, SHINEDOWN

    7 p.m. Verizon Arena. $40-$100.

    If you hated Godsmack for sounding too much like Metallica or Alice in Chains: Good news! They sound different now. That is to say, new tunes like "Bulletproof" have more of a "commercial aspect," lead singer Sully Erna told the video series FaceCulture last year. He's right, in a way; there's more melody and less of the tortured guitar crunch that became synonymous with the words "nu metal" during the band's mid-'90s rise. Then again, can anybody who penned a soundtrack for a slice of "The Mummy" franchise claim he didn't have a commercial aspect to begin with? Erna and his crew mix that new sound with the stuff that's been the bread and butter of KDJE-FM, 100.3 ("The Edge"), for at least a decade, and they're here with fellow hard rock radio staples Shinedown who, despite anthems like "45," never took to the "nu metal" vibe wholeheartedly enough to have trouble shaking it off.

              Mangroves #3: life above the mud      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    This post marks the completion of my three-part series on mangroves, one of my favourite habitats, not least because they are so unfamiliar and even unlikely, fluctuating with the tides between land and sea environments. It began here, and you might want to have a look there if you've not already done so, as there is background information that I won't repeat. And the second post featured some seriously cool crabs!

    Today I want to introduce some animals that live above the mud, in the mangrove trees themselves. Some virtually never leave the mangroves, to others the mangroves are a very significant part of their lives though they venture beyond them too. Many feed and breed there, some come back every day to roost. 

    Quite a few tropical birds are mangrove specialists, including in Australia. Here are a few.

    Mangrove Robin Peneoenanthe pulverulenta, Bayview, Darwin. This lovely bird, with a sad whistle,
    never leaves the mangroves; it is found in northern Australia and New Guinea.
    In addition to insects, it eats small crabs. It is the only member of its genus.
    Mangrove Grey Fantail Rhipidura phasiana, Norman River, Karumba, Gulf of Carpentaria, Queensland.
    It is closely related to the familiar Grey Fantail, but has a paler grey back, broader wing bars and a shorter tail.
    It too rarely leaves the mangroves of northern Australia and southern New Guinea.
    This was from a boat trip that I mentioned in the last post, as are the next two species.
    White-breasted Whistler Pachycephala lanioides. This is a female, he has a magnificently snowy breast
    and throat, separated by a black collar. Another mangrove specialist, found across northern Australia.
     
    Immature male Red-headed Honeyeater Myzomela erythrocephala.  (There is a tendency elsewhere to use Myzomela
    as a group name, but fortunately we've resisted that so far in Australia!) This one again lives wherever there
    are mangroves throughout far northern Australia and across Torres Strait.
    The glorious adult male below, though largely hidden, gives some idea of what this youngster will later look like.

    Others, as mentioned, forage to a significant degree in mangroves, but aren't so restricted. The following birds are typical of these. The first two in fact spent time inspecting us as we sat on the platform at the end of the excellent boardwalk at the East Point mangroves in Darwin (see first post in this series for more on this great spot, but I also did a whole post on it, here).
    Lemon-bellied Flycatchers Microeca flavigaster, which are actually robins (though a recent attempt
    to persuade us to called them flyrobins isn't gaining much traction yet). In the Northern Territory they are
    largely mangrove birds, but elsewhere in northern Australia and especially in New Guinea they extend
    into other woodland and forest habitats.

    Northern Fantail Rhipidura rufiventris; similar comments could be made about this friendly little chap
    as per the others, though it's found well beyond the mangroves in the Northern Territory too.
    (The early morning light under the canopy wasn't too great.)
    Varied Honeyeaters Gavicalis versicolor, Cairns Esplanade. This busy and garrulous honeyeater does spend
    most of its time in mangroves, but regularly moves out into nearby coastal vegetation, including in
    parks and gardens, as here.
    Shining Flycatcher Myiagra alecto, Gunlom, Kakadu NP, Northern Territory (male above, female below,
    in a very impressive example of sexual dimorphism). A beautiful bird which can be quite curious,
    nearly always near water, either in mangroves or along stream lines.
     
    Collared Kingfisher Todiramphus chloris, Selingan Island, Sabah.
    This lovely kingfisher is mostly found in mangroves - in a huge range from north-east Africa to
    the Lesser Sundas (Bali, Lombok etc) - but does use other habitats, especially on islands.
    We used to think it had an even larger range, to northern Australia and well out into the Pacific, but
    recently five species have been split from it, including the Torresian Kingfisher T. sordidus of northern
    Australia and New Guinea, which is strongly associated with mangroves - in fact
    it's often been known as Mangrove Kingfisher here. Crabs are a specialty!
    Stork-billed Kingfisher Pelargopsis capensis, Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. A magnificent bird,
    found from India to the Philippines and the Lesser Sundas. A fish and crab specialist,
    particularly in mangroves, but it is broad-minded and expands both its habitat and diet beyond that.
    Not only birds are mangrove specialists however.
    The extraordinary Proboscis Monkey Nasalis larvatus, endemic to Borneo, is mostly dependent on mangroves,
    especially their leaves and fruit, though it is also found in riverine forest. Here at Labuk Bay, Sabah.
    Proboscis Monkey youngsters at very boisterous play.

    Silvered Leaf Monkeys Trachypithecus cristatus with baby (isn't it an amazing colour?!),
    Bako NP, Sarawak. These lovely monkeys specialise even more in leaves than the Proboscis do,
    and share their coastal, especially mangrove, and riverine forest habitats.

    Water Monitor Varanus salvator Klias River Sabah. This big goanna is widespread in south and
    south-east Asia, especially in mangroves, but also beyond them.
    Some species, which don't otherwise utilise mangroves, nest in them. This is especially true on isolated volcanic islands where other trees may be scarce.
    Red-footed Booby Sula sula (white morph) nesting in mangroves, Genovesa, Galápagos.
    This was part of a busy colony in the mangroves just behind the beach, below.

     Others just roost there.
    Striated Heron Butorides striata (also known as Mangrove Heron) here roosting in mangroves,
    Isabela, Galápagos, though in fact they feed there as well when the tide drops.
    Papuan Frogmouth Podargus papuensis, at day roost in mangroves, Centennial Lakes, Cairns.
    Some of the most dramatic roosting colonies in mangroves are provided by fruit bats, which can number tens of thousands.

    A very small part of a huge Little Red Fruit Bat Pteropus scapulatus colony, in mangroves along the waterfront
    in Cooktown, north Queensland. By day they sleep (and squabble) and in the evening spread out over the
    countryside in search of fruit and nectar.
    So, mangroves. I hope you can be as excited by them as I am. And if you're still an agnostic, maybe you could visit some soon and see if that helps. Meantime, thanks for exploring them with me.

              RUBÉOLA      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    A rubéola, também conhecida como “sarampo alemão”, é uma virose contagiosa, causada pelo vírus “rubella”, da família dos rubivírus. Esses vírus entram em nosso corpo pelas vias respiratórias, ou seja, pelo nariz e boca e o contágio se dá pela tosse, espirros ou gotículas de saliva ao falar, beijo e uso de objetos pessoais (talheres, copos, escovas de dente etc), ou do próprio ar contaminado por esse vírus.
     vírus rubella

    O único hospedeiro desse vírus é o ser humano, assim como os vírus do sarampo, varicela, eritema infeccioso e a roséola. A rubéola ocorre geralmente na infância, entre os 5 e 9 anos. Mas pode aparecer em adultos não vacinados ou naqueles que nunca tiveram essa doença.

     os rashs

    A rubéola ocorre uma única vez na vida e costuma ser benigna. Porém, se ocorrer em mulheres grávidas. A rubéola pode apresentar riscos, principalmente, se a mulher estiver nos três primeiros meses de gravidez, época em que o bebê está em formação. Os perigos vão do aborto espontâneo a deformações fetais.  Uma dessas deformações é a cegueira devido a complicações chamadas de “Síndrome da Rubéola Congênita”. Portanto, as mulheres que tiverem dúvidas quanto a sua imunidade e querem engravidar devem conversar com seus médicos para que ele recomende a vacinação. No caso da rubéola congênita, a transmissão é feita pela mãe ao feto. Após o nascimento, o bebê poderá transmitir o vírus até da idade de 1 ano.


    A rubéola se propaga rapidamente dentro do corpo humano. Atinge a faringe, os órgãos linfáticos e se espalha pelo corpo todo pela corrente sanguínea. Sua incubação dura de 12 a 23 dias aproximadamente, quando começam a aparecer os primeiros sintomas. O perigo mais forte de contágio são os primeiros sete dias, ou seja, antes que os sintomas apareçam. Desta forma, um ser humano infecta outro sem sabem que também está contaminado.


    Febre de 38º e erupções vermelhas na pele do rosto e atrás das orelhas (o rash) aparecem antes que se espalhem por todo o corpo.  Nesta fase, muitas vezes, as pessoas confundem a rubéola com o sarampo. O rash dura cerca de 3 dias na pele e, depois disso, não há mais perigo de contágio. Outros sintomas: conjuntivite, tosse, espirros, secreção nasal, dores musculares e articulares, dor de cabeça, pele seca, aumento dos gânglios linfáticos, dificuldade (ou dor) ao engolir e dor de garganta, nódulos na nuca e atrás das orelhas e mal estar geral.

    As dores articulares são menos duradouras em crianças e mais duradouras em adultos.


    QUANDO PROCURAR AJUDA MÉDICA?

    ·         Sempre que houver alguns dos sintomas citados.
    ·         Se estiver querendo engravidar
    ·         Se souber que não foi vacinado ou a tenha tomado há muito tempo.

    FATORES DE RISCO

    ·         Não tomar a vacina (principalmente em mulheres que querem engravidar)
    ·         Estar em contato com pessoas infectadas ou com seus pertences pessoais.

    DIAGNÓSTICO

    A princípio a rubéola pode ser confundida com outras doenças (o sarampo, por exemplo). Um exame de sangue pode definir o diagnóstico porque 4 dias após a infectação já há a presença de anticorpos lgG e lgM no sangue.
    Os anticorpos lgM são os que atacam a doença e o lgG indica se a pessoa está ou não está protegida contra essa doença.
    Em caso das mulheres que estão ou querem engravidar o exame de sangue é importantíssimo.

    DIAGNÓSTICO EM GESTANTES


    Mulheres que estão grávidas (até o 3º mês) que apresentam os sintomas da rubéola ou que ficaram em contato com pessoas estavam infectadas e não sabiam, sendo confirmado posteriormente, devem procurar um médico com URGÊNCIA.  Isto porque, embora a rubéola não traga grandes problemas para a mãe, pode afetar o bebê seriamente.

    Para saber se o bebê está sendo (ou foi) afetado, é preciso fazer uma minuciosa checagem dos tecidos e órgãos do feto. Além dos costumeiros exames de sangue, devem ser feitos: o ultrassom morfológico (realizado ente as 18 e 22 semanas de gestação) e que avalia se há malformações no feto. Infelizmente, algumas malformações só poderão ser observadas após o nascimento, como é o caso da malformação cerebelar, ou de lesões cerebrais que causam a deficiência intelectual.

    Outras complicações que pode atingir os bebês:

    Audição: otites (dores de ouvido) crônicas, surdez

    Visão: cegueira, catarata, gaucoma.

    Cérebro: encefalite viral, microcefalia, meningoencefalite, lesões do sistema nervoso, danos no funcionamento, cerebrais, dificuldades intelectuais, autismo.

    Corpo: baixo peso ao nascer, problemas no crescimento, danos no fígado e baço, diabetes, problemas hormonais, problemas cardíacos, anemia hemolítica, mal funcionamento de órgãos, malformações em geral, erupções cutâneas no nascimento, inflamação dos pulmões, púrpura (doença que dá manchas ou placas roxas (tipo batidas) na pele, órgãos e membranas mucosas (dentro da boca).

    RUBÉOLA TEM CURA?

    Sim, tem cura. Todas as doenças infantis têm um ciclo. Passado esse ciclo, a vida segue normalmente. E não há um tratamento específico, já que todas as doenças infantis imunizam a pessoa para o resto de suas vidas. O que se pode fazer é amenizar os sintomas, como tomar um analgésico para diminuir as dores e um antitérmico para baixar a febre (receitados por um médico) e repouso.

    OBS: Só não há cura se a rubéola atingir o feto em seu período de formação (nos 3 primeiros meses de gestação).

    REMÉDIOS CASEIROS RESOLVEM?

    Alguns médicos costumam indicar a ingestão de líquidos para aclamar a tosse e hidratar o corpo. Segundo a sabedoria popular, alguns chás podem ajudar: como os chás de acerola, camomila, hamamélis e cístus incanus. Estas duas últimas são encontradas em casas de ervas e de produtos naturais.

                    citus incanus                                                      hamamélis
               
                       OBS- NÃO SAIA PEGANDO PLANTAS SEM CONHECÊ-LAS DE VERDADE.

    Para bebês menores de 1 ano, os médicos recomendam mel e gotas de limão com água, ambas em temperatura morna.

    ATENÇÃO:

    ·         Os casos de rubéola pararam de ocorrer em 2009. Porém, se nossas crianças não forem vacinadas, NOVOS CASOS DA DOENÇA poderão voltar a ocorrer, como é o caso do sarampo.

    A vacina que livra as crianças do sarampo, da caxumba e da rubéola é a TRÍPLICE VIRAL.

              Récord de donación y trasplante de órganos en Santa Fe      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    El Ministerio de Salud de Santa Fe informó que durante el mes de julio se lograron dos marcas históricas: 12 donantes de órganos y 36 trasplantes posibilitados por esos donantes. “Siete de los procesos fueron multiorgánicos, con lo que una vez más se confirma la calidad profesional y el compromiso humano de todo el personal que interviene, tanto de los médicos como de toda la cadena de responsabilidades que forman parte del proceso”, sostuvo el director de Cudaio, Martín Cuestas.

    “Si se llegara a esta proporción de donaciones a lo largo de un año, la tasa nacional sería igual a la más alta del mundo, perteneciente a España, con un impacto positivo insustituible: la espera para trasplante se reduciría de años a pocos meses o semanas”, añadió.

    En el Hospital de Emergencias Clemente Álvarez (Heca) hubo cinco donaciones, en tanto que otras dos tuvieron lugar en el Hospital Eva Perón de Granadero Baigorria y una en el Sanatorio Mapaci y Hospital de Niños Zona Norte en Rosario; en el hospital Cullen, de Santa Fe; el hospital Jaime Ferré, de Rafaela; y el sanatorio Esperanza, de la ciudad homónima.

    A partir de los órganos ablacionados se realizaron 21 trasplantes renales, ocho hepáticos, tres cardíacos, tres pulmonares y un renopáncreático. La mayoría de estos órganos se destinaron a pacientes santafesinos, en tanto que los restantes, a personas de distintos lugares del país, siguiendo criterios de Incucai a través de su herramienta unificada, el Sintra.

    Los 36 pacientes que recibieron su implante a partir de los órganos obtenidos en esas donaciones también constituyen un récord histórico de ablaciones posibilitadas por santafesinos. La mayor cantidad de trasplantes en un mes databa de marzo de 2014, cuando se realizaron 10 proceso de donación de órganos.

              Ілон Маск провів таємну зустріч з вченими щодо колонізації Марсу      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Відомий мільярдер та інженер Ілон Маск провів таємну зустріч з провідними планетологами Землі, під час якої обговорили плани щодо колонізації Марса. Зустріч відбулась на початку цього тижня.

    Про це пише Space.com, передає УНІАН.

    При цьому Маск просив науковців не афішувати цю зустріч. За задумом Маска, на Марсі мають створити незалежне від Землі і автономне місто-мільйонник. Місто має забезпечувати себе всім необхідним.

    Раніше Маск навіть опублікував детальний опис планів з будівництва цього міста. Однак. Така ідея викликала критику з боку науковців, які назвали ідеї підприємця занадто дорогими і фантастичними.

    Тож цього тижня Маск і його найближчі помічники зустрілися із критиками в університеті Колорадо в Боулдері. На цій зустрічі були присутні 60 провідних геологів, астробіологів і космічних інженерів, а також чиновники і представники NASA.

    Під час зустрічі обговорили пристрої, а також розробку технологій, які потрібні для створення повністю автономної колонії на Марсі.

    El número de pacientes diagnosticados con cáncer de próstata en el país continúa en aumento, y ya supera al de mama, según se refleja en las estadísticas más recientes reportadas por el Seguro Nacional de Salud (Senasa) durante el primer semestre de este año.



    De los 2,459 afiliados al seguro estatal que fueron diagnosticados con cáncer en ese periodo, el 28% fue localizado en la próstata, seguido por el de mama con un 22.5%, el de cérvix con 7.6% y el de colon con un 3.2%, según informó el gerente de Servicios de Salud, Jefrey Lizardo, quien precisó que los valores autorizados a estos pacientes fue de RD$69 millones.



    El funcionario precisó que este monto solo representa el inicio del tratamiento ya que conforme avanza el esquema terapéutico aplicado el gasto tiende a aumentar.



    Durante un encuentro en el que la directora de la institución, Mercedes Rodríguez, mostró a representantes de los diferentes medios de comunicación los principales logros y retos de la institución, Lizardo detalló que de enero a junio ha habido un mayor número de casos con respecto al mismo periodo del año pasado, los cuales fueron detectados, en mayor medida en el Instituto Oncológico Heriberto Pieter y el Instituto del Cáncer Rosa Emilia Tavárez.



    En ese sentido, insistió en la importancia de la detección temprana para revertir el avance de esta enfermedad, mediante el análisis del antígeno prostático específico (PSA) en los hombres y la prueba de Papanicolau, en el caso de las mujeres, los cuales son promovidos en los Círculos Comunitarios de la Salud que esa entidad impulsa en distintos puntos del país.



    En ese mismo orden, Rodríguez agregó que en los primeros seis meses del año se autorizaron RD$1,388 millones para el tratamiento de enfermedades de Alto Costo para el régimen subsidiado, aunque abogó por la reforma a la Ley 87-01 de Seguridad Social para ampliar las coberturas de enfermedades catastróficas que actualmente se han fijado en un millón de pesos por año.



    Aprovechó para recordar a las instituciones gubernamentales que la sentencia 0435/15 del Tribunal Constitucional les ordena afiliar a sus empleados y dependientes al Senasa.

    THURSDAY 8/9-MONDAY 8/13

    PERSEIDS METEOR SHOWER
    Arkansas State Parks (and anywhere else it’s dark).

    It’s August, and that means it’s time again to look up and see the Perseids. The meteor shower is one of the most satisfying star show of the year, with around 100 shooting stars (but at times double that this year, what’s called an “outburst”). Peak viewing time for folks who’ve found a dark spot away from light pollution is between midnight and dawn Sunday, Aug. 12, according to NASA, but the Perseids put on a show up to and after that peak. As a plus, the moon will be new this weekend, thus providing a darker sky. Arkansas State Parks has organized a Perseids Meteor Shower Palooza: In Central Arkansas, see the stars from the middle of Lake Maumelle with a guided boat cruise from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday departing from Jolly Roger’s Marina ($12 adults, $6 children), and there will be free viewing from the beach 10 p.m.-midnight Monday at Woolly Hollow State Park in Greenbrier. In Southwest Arkansas, DeGray Lake State Park has scheduled a number of family events: kayak viewing from the lake from 7:30 p.m.-9:45 p.m. Thursday-Sunday ($15 adults, $10 children); a Perseids Meteor Safari on the golf course from 8:45 p.m.-9:45 p.m. Saturday and Sunday ($10 adults, $5 children); and the Night Owl Perseids Prowl Cruise from 10:30 p.m.-11:45 p.m. Saturday ($12 adults, $6 children). Check the State Parks calendar for other nighttime hikes this weekend, too. So what’s a meteor? We’re glad you asked. They’re icy space rocks from the Comet Swift-Tuttle that burn up when they hit our atmosphere, making for lovely streaks of light across the heavens. Reserve for Maumelle at 868-5806 and DeGray Lake at 865-5850. LNP

    THURSDAY 8/9

    TELEKINETIC YETI

    9 p.m. White Water Tavern. $8.

    The duo Telekinetic Yeti is a medley of unlikely juxtapositions: It's just not that often that the word "duo" accompanies anything described as "stoner doom metal," let alone with the geographical qualifier "from Dubuque, Iowa." Check out album closer "Himalayan Hymn" from 2017's "Abominable" for a good example of how much sonic territory two dudes from The Hawkeye State can cover in 5 1/2 minutes. They're on tour with Kansas City heavy-rock barn-burners Hyborian, and joined on the bill by locals Fred and Shoe. SS

    FRIDAY 8/10

    STEPHEN CHOPEK

    8 p.m. The Undercroft.

    The first thing that caught my ear about Stephen Chopek wasn't so much what he'd done as who he'd done it with — as drummer for a few faves: Pimps of Joytime, Shannon McNally, Amy LaVere. In "Radio Caroline," those percussion propers reveal themselves in the perfect chug of his strumming, but the text — a true tale of an off-shore pirate radio station that broadcast from the open seas in the early 1960s to thwart BBC's regulations and broadcast monopoly — sounds more like a Pete Seeger tune than a Pimps jam, and it's well tailored for a tiny, underground listening room like The Undercroft. Bring along some cash to throw in for the Undercroft-brewed beer on hand, or for the 45 RPM vinyl with Chopek's "Radio Caroline" opposite "The Ballad of Cash & Dean." SS


    FRIDAY 8/10

    2ND FRIDAY ART NIGHT

    5-8 p.m., downtown galleries.

    The Butler Center galleries have adopted a new name: They'll now be called the Galleries at Library Square, so you'll know they're part of the Central Arkansas Library System. Now we've got that squared away, let's move on to the art: The new show there is from the Butler Center's collection of artworks and artifacts from the WWII Japanese-American internment camps at Rohwer and Jerome. "A Matter of Mind and Heart: Portraits of Japanese American Identity" will feature Henry Sugimoto's "Arrival at Jerome," on loan from Hendrix College in Conway. (Sugimoto was still interned when, with the help of Hendrix art professor Louis Freund, he first exhibited his work at Hendrix.) Also at the Galleries at Library Square is an exhibition of work by the Brewer art dynasty: Nicholas, Adrian and Edward. River Market Books and Gifts (nee the Cox Creative Center), has also gotten a new name: It's now The Bookstore at Library Square. There, David Carpenter will perform live his gravity-defying video piece in the "Delta des Refuses" show. Over at the Historic Arkansas Museum, which is still the Historic Arkansas Museum, 2nd Friday will open "Space Between Teeth: Linda Lopez + Marc Mitchell" and MarQuis & Mood will provide the music. By making a donation to The Van, the nonprofit group that helps the unsheltered, Bella Vita will knock 20 percent off anything purchased at the artisan jewelry shop at 523 S. Louisiana St., and there will be beer from Lost Forty as encouragement. See art made live at Gallery 221, where artists and patrons will create a 60-by-60-inch triptych, "Healing Hands," and hold an auction to benefit the Children's Advocacy Centers of Arkansas. The Courtyard by Marriott will feature works by the members of the Art Group, Matt McLeod Fine Art is showing the Arkansas League of Artists "Members Show," and it's Movie Night at the Old State House Museum, with free popcorn, candy, soft drinks, beer and wine.

    FRIDAY 8/10

    TIFFANY

    7 p.m. Park Plaza Mall. Donations of two canned goods.

    In July 1988, pop singer Tiffany Darwish had a piano power ballad, "Could've Been," in heavy rotation on the radio. What it could've been, at least chronologically speaking, was the denouement of the star-crossed love story that she sang about the year before, with a drum machine-heavy remake of Tommy James and the Shondells' 1967 chart-topper "I Think We're Alone Now." Also in July 1988: What was once an open-air shopping center reopened as Park Plaza Mall in midtown Little Rock, bolstered and bookended by a double dose of Dillard's, the department store headquartered here in Little Rock. To celebrate the anniversary, Darwish — better known by her first-name mononym Tiffany — will put on a free concert in the mall parking lot near the corner of Markham Street and University Avenue. Organizers are steadfastly committed to the theme; a Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtle (Michelangelo, specifically — the Miss Congeniality and self-identifying "party dude" of the TMNT personality quadrant) and a Hello Kitty character will be in attendance, and the mall's Sephora is booking appointments for full-face '80s makeovers. See Park Plaza Mall's Facebook page for the details, and bring along two canned goods for a drive called CANstruction, benefiting the Arkansas Foodbank. SS

    AMASA HINES, DOT, OR: BENEFIT FOR CYSTIC FIBROSIS FOUNDATION

    9:30 p.m. White Water Tavern. $10.

    What connects the three bands on this fundraising bill isn't essentially musical — they're as sonically disparate as the summer days are long — but kinetic. Amasa Hines' slow builds, alternately sparse and urgent; Or's mechanized, trance-like foreboding; and DOT's driving, beachy punk rock are all energies used for good here, benefiting the Arkansas chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. This one will sell out. Get tickets at lastchancerecords.us. SS

    RICKY SKAGGS

    7 p.m. Pulaski Technical College, Center for Humanities and Arts. $35-$120.

    They played it like a gag in 1961, scripting a 7-year-old kid to come up and tug on the hem of Lester Flatt's suit jacket in the middle of the Martha White-sponsored Flatt & Scruggs variety show. Instead of a punchline, though, a dapper Ricky Skaggs approached the microphone and peeled out "Foggy Mountain Special" on the mandolin, following it up with "Ruby" in his west Kentucky drawl, singing lyrics he was too young to embody: "I was sittin' in the shade/with a shovel and my spade/diggin' in the ground gold mine/Ruby, Ruby/Honey, are you mad at your man?" His stagecraft has assuredly caught up to his virtuosity; back then, he ran out of camera frame before the audience had a chance to applaud him. Now, he's accustomed to multiple standing ovations like the ones he and his band Kentucky Thunder got at the Ryman Auditorium last week. He's been a bluegrass traditionalist when it was cool, he's been a bluegrass traditionalist when it wasn't, and he's been a bluegrass traditionalist in some unlikely collaborations, throwing his mandolin into the mix with Phish, Ry Cooder, on Arkansas native Erin Enderlin's 2017 record "Whiskeytown Crier." He also lent his talents to a campaign event for Jason Rapert in 2014 — why, Ricky, why? Earlier this year, Skaggs was honored with an induction to the Country Music Hall of Fame — years too late, Garth Brooks and others would claim. He'll play at UAPTC just a few weeks before accepting yet another title as an inductee to the 2018 International Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame. Get tickets at uaptc.edu/charts. SS

    SATURDAY 8/11

    'MADE' reception

    6-9 p.m. Boswell Mourot Fine Art.

    Four great Arkansas artists in one place: That's what Boswell Mourot has going through Sept. 1. Matthew Lopas, associate professor of art at Hendrix College, sees the world through a fish-eye lens, his interiors and landscapes distorted into swirling panoramas. Alice Andrews paints the waterfalls and rocky outcrops of her Ozarks home with soft shapes of blue-greens and warm browns. In this show, Dennis McCann, a retired firefighter and winner of multiple awards for his pastels, uses complementary shades of orange and aquamarine to capture abstract underpinnings in representation. Eleanor Dickinson is an artist whose work we just don't see enough of: Gorgeous washes combined with drawing and abstracted architectural features, her take, perhaps Paul Klee-inspired, on places she's been. Matthew, Alice, Dennis and Eleanor — MADE of special stuff. LNP

    SATURDAY 8/11

    FOUL PLAY CABARET

    10 p.m. White Water Tavern. $10.

    Two weeks ago, when Foul Play Cabaret brought "The Modern Show" to a one-time brothel on Bathhouse Row in downtown Hot Springs called Maxine's, a young man apologized to me for having stopped so suddenly in my direct sight lines, frozen and presumably stultified by the magnetism between Violet D'Vine and Rosa Lee Bloom during a particularly intense duet. He'd come to hang out and maybe throw some darts and, I think, was surprised to find a burlesque show going on — and surprised at its thrust. "I thought cabaret was, like, the girls in the line kicking their legs up," he explained later on, mimicking a Rockettes routine with his fingers. That night, eschewing the tried-and-true Alberto Vargas pin-up incarnate aesthetic the burlesque troupe channels beautifully and often, Foul Play's dancers twirled and somersaulted instead to FKA Twigs and Katy Perry. Ruby Lead did an entire act using only a crimson swath of fabric and her jet black locks to create mesmerizing geometry, Jezebelle Jaxx revived an entire audience's commitment to yoga class and Doris Night opened the evening with a magnificently technicolor Sally Rand, her wrists twirling two enormous feather fans in time with the throbbing bass beats. It's artful and sex-positive and immaculately prepared and rehearsed, and the cost of admission is a fraction of what lounges in metropoli like Vegas and Paris are charging for shows of the same rank. If you can't catch them in this Capitol View/Stifft Station legend of a bar, consider attending the ensemble's return to Maxine's in Hot Springs on Saturday, Aug. 18, when they'll put up "Foul Play Loves the '80s," complete with hair scrunchies, leg warmers, a spandex routine called "Aerobics with Violet" and a guest appearance from Dallas dancer Vivienne Vermuth. SS

    TUESDAY 8/14

    GODSMACK, SHINEDOWN

    7 p.m. Verizon Arena. $40-$100.

    If you hated Godsmack for sounding too much like Metallica or Alice in Chains: Good news! They sound different now. That is to say, new tunes like "Bulletproof" have more of a "commercial aspect," lead singer Sully Erna told the video series FaceCulture last year. He's right, in a way; there's more melody and less of the tortured guitar crunch that became synonymous with the words "nu metal" during the band's mid-'90s rise. Then again, can anybody who penned a soundtrack for a slice of "The Mummy" franchise claim he didn't have a commercial aspect to begin with? Erna and his crew mix that new sound with the stuff that's been the bread and butter of KDJE-FM, 100.3 ("The Edge"), for at least a decade, and they're here with fellow hard rock radio staples Shinedown who, despite anthems like "45," never took to the "nu metal" vibe wholeheartedly enough to have trouble shaking it off.

    Students and faculty are invited to attend one or all of these talks. Lunch is on us!

    Part of the UMBC Interdisciplinary CoLab pilot program, UMBC Carbon Zero project brought together an interdisciplinary team of undergraduate students, with the aim of bringing awareness to UMBC’s efforts toward reducing its carbon footprint and tackling the global problem of climate change. Using the theme of “Think Globally, Act Locally,” the student participants: (1) examined how human activities have contributed to an increase in global mean temperatures, (2) recognized the observed changes to the Earth system and potential consequences of our failure to mitigate increases in global temperatures, and (3) explored the actions we, as the UMBC community are taking to reach climate neutrality. As an end product, the students produced a digital story in the form of a series of videos based on the UMBC Climate Action Steering Committee’s four working groups involving waste reduction, energy, transportation, and research and education.

              Marquez Waspadai 2 Rider Ducati di MotoGP Austria      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Liputan6.com, Spielberg - Rider Repsol Honda Team, Marc Marquez sudah siap menghadapi MotoGP Austria, akhir pekan ini. Namun, dia mewaspadai kecepatan dua rider Ducati, Andrea Dovizioso dan Jorge Lorenzo.

    Menurut Marquez, MotoGP Austria sangat cocok untuk motor Ducati. Red Bull Ring memiliki empat trek lurus yang sangat cocok untuk motor Ducati Desmosedici GP18.

    Kecepatan Dovizioso dan Lorenzo sulit dilawan Marquez saat balapan di MotoGP Republik Ceko, pekan lalu. Marquez berada di peringkat ketiga, di belakang Lorenzo dan Dovizioso, yang keluar sebagai juara di Sirkuit Brno.

    "Saya datang ke Austria setelah mendapat hasil tes yang bagus di Brno. Saya dan tim menemukan beberapa hal positif. Kami akan mencoba beberapa hal positif itu di Red Bull Ring dan melihat bagaimana semuanya bekerja," kata Marquez, seperti dikutip dari Crash.

    "MotoGP Austria merupakan trek yang membuat Dovizioso dan Lorenzo kuat. Namun, kami juga kuat di sana tahun lalu jadi kami percaya diri hingga tikungan terakhir," ucapnya menambahkan.

    Belum Menang di Austria

    Marquez sendiri belum pernah menang di MotoGP Austria sejak pertama digelar pada 2016. Dalam dua tahun terakhir, Ducati selalu merajai Red Bull Ring.

    Pada MotoGP 2017, Dovizioso menjadi yang tercepat. Dia unggul tipis 0,176 detik dari Marquez. Namun, Marquez percaya diri menantang Ducati pada 12 Agustus mendatang.

    "Kami akan mencoba untuk menjadi cepat dari awal dan kemudian bertarung di depan. Sebenarnya, ini akan menjadi kali kedua balapan di Austria, setelah pengalaman luar biasa yang kami miliki dengan tes Toro Rosso F1, Juni lalu." ujar Marquez.

              Kedapatan Curi Ponsel, Emak-Emak Diikat di Tiang Listrik      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Liputan6.com, Gowa - Sebuah video berdurasi 27 detik tengah viral di media sosial sejak Rabu, 8 Agustus 2018. Video tersebut mempertontonkan seorang emak-emak diikat di tiang listrik dan menjadi tontonan warga. 

    Penelusuran Liputan6.com, video tersebut direkam di depan Masjid Agung, Jalan Masjid Raya, Kelurahan Somba Opu, Kecamatan Sungguminasa, Kabupaten Gowa, Sulawesi Selatan.

    "Iya benar kejadiannya kemarin pagi," kata Kapolres Gowa, AKBP Shinto Silitonga, Kamis (9/8/2018) pagi. 

    Belakangan diketahui, emak-emak itu bernama Nurmi, ibu rumah tangga berusia 40 tahun. Ia kedapatan mencuri ponsel milik salah seorang pengantar jamaah haji saat kegiatan pemberangkatan calon jemaah haji Kabupaten Gowa kemarin.

    "Jadi, prosesi pelepasan calon jamaah haji itu kan ramai, dia ambil kesempatan di situ," jelas Shinto.

    Korbannya adalah seorang anak kecil berusia 11 tahun, berinisial NF. NF menyadari ponsel yang ia simpan di tasnya telah raib dibawa lari oleh Nurmi. 

    "Pencuri," teriak NF, sambil menunjuk ke arah Nurmi yang sedang berlari berusaha meloloskan diri. 

    Shinto mengatakan teriakan NF itu berhasil menarik perhatian warga yang berada di sekitar tempat tersebut. Warga pun kemudian beramai-ramai mengejar Nurmi. 

    "Pelaku diamankan oleh warga di depan Masjid Agung. Mungkin warga tidak tega untuk memukul pelaku karena dia perempuan, makanya dia sempat diikat di tiang listrik," jelasnya.

    Tak lama berselang, Nurmi kemudian dilepaskan oleh warga yang iba melihatnya diikat di tiang listrik. Nurmi lalu digelandang ke kantor polisi untuk mempertanggungjawabkan perbuatannya. 

    Saat di Mapolres Gowa, Nurmi sempat membantah telah mencuri ponsel. Namun, bantahan Nurmi terpatahkan setelah ponsel yang ia curi sebelumnya berdering. 

    "HP yang dia curi sempat dia sembunyikan di bawah meja SPKT, tapi telepon itu berdering pas anggota SPKT mengangkat telepon itu ternyata telepon itu adalah milik orang lain," kata Shinto. 

    Nurmi tidak bisa mengelak lagi. Ia saat ini mendekam di dalam sel tahanan Mapolres Gowa untuk mempertanggungjawabkan perbuatannya.

    "Kita lakukan penahanan setelah korban kita minta untuk membuat laporan polisi," ujar Shinto. 

     


              Cara OJK dan Komisi XI Dorong Pelajar Melek Literasi Keuangan      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Liputan6.com, Jakarta Otoritas Jasa Keuangan (OJK) bersama Komisi XI DPR berupaya meningkatkan literasi di kalangan pelajar dan mahasiswa perihal pentingnya perlindungan konsumen perbankan.

    Kepala OJK Malang Widodo mengatakan, hasil survei menunjukkan literasi keuangan di Indonesia masih di angka 29,7 persen. Artinya, tingkat pengetahuan masyarakat tentang sektor keuangan masih sangat rendah. "Sehingga masih banyak masyarakat yang menjadi korban penipuan investasi keuangan" ujar dia.

    OJK berupaya mengajak pelajar dan mahasiswa makin melek terhadap hak-hak sebagai konsumen bank ataupun lembaga keuangan lainnya, salah satunya di Pasuruan, Jawa Timur. 

    OJK menggelar seminar di hadapan ratusan mahasiswa STKIP PGRI Pasuruan, pada Selasa (6/8/2018) bertema Memperkuat Peran OJK dalam Perlindungan Konsumen di Sektor Perbankan. 

    Kemudian dilanjutkan sosialisasi pada pada Selasa (7/8/2018), di hadapan ratusan siswa SMA Yadika, Bangil, Pasuruan.

    Widodo berharap para pelajar dan mahasiswa bisa menyebarkan informasi tentang investasi yang sehat di keluarga dan komunitasnya masing-masing. "OJK terus berupaya meningkatkan literasi keuangan masyarakat melalui kegiatan seminar dan sosialisasi seperti ini," kata Widodo.

    Kepada para pelajar, Anggota Komisi XI DPR Mukhamad Misbakhun, menjelaskan peran OJK sebagai lembaga negara yang bertugas melindungi konsumen terutama di sektor perbankan.

    Keberadaan OJK makin penting seiring makin berkembangnya industri keuangan dan investasi yang berhubungan langsung dengan masyarakat. Legislator asal Pasuruan itu mengatakan, mahasiswa sebagai kalangan terpelajar harus bisa menghindari investasi bodong.

    “Mahasiswa harus paham tentang bagaimana investasi yang sehat. Mahasiswa harus mengerti mana investasi yang benar dan mana investasi bodong. Caranya yang paling mudah adalah melihat apakah lembaga investasi itu punya izin dari OJK atau tidak,” tutur dia.

    Politikus yang dikenal getol membela kebijakan Presiden Joko Widodo itu juga mengajak mahasiswa bisa menjadi agen gerakan pencerahan bagi masyarakat. Sebab, investasi bodong dengan segala modelnya saat ini marak dan sudah banyak masyarakay menjadi korbannya.

    "Untuk itu, mahasiswa harus menjadi motor pencerahan kepada masyarakat agar mawas terhadap berbagai iming-iming investasi fiktif,” kata wakil rakyat dari daerah pemilihan Pasuruan dan Probolinggo itu.

    Hal serupa juga disampaikan Misbakhun saat menemui ratusan siswa SMA Yadika. Mantan pegawai Kementerian Keuangan itu mengingatkan para siswa yang menjadi nasabah bank harus tahu hak-hak mereka.

    "Siswa yang mempunyai rekening bank adalah konsumen perbankan yang wajib mendapatkan perlindungan dari OJK untuk memastikan tabungan adik-adik semuanya aman," terangnya.

    Misbakhun menambahkan, sudah menjadi tugas pokoknya sebagai anggota Komisi XI DPR untuk menjelaskan kepada masyarakat tentang keberadaan OJK yang menjadi mitra kerjanya.

              Piala AFF U-18 2018: Myanmar Ingin Berjumpa Indonesia di Final      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Liputan6.com, Sidoarjo - Myanmar masih penasaran dengan Indonesia di Piala AFF U-16 2018. Buktinya, pelatih Myanmar, Nyi Nyi Latt, ingin pasukannya kembali berhadapan dengan Tim Merah Putih di final nanti.

    “Saya ingin berjumpa Indonesia di final, karena saya merasa pemain kami bisa banyak belajar banyak dari Indonesia. Saya melihat cara permainan Indonesia sangat bagus,” kata Latt kepada Bola.com belum lama ini. 

    Myanmar sebenarnya sudah berjumpa dengan Timnas Indonesia U-16 di Grup A Piala AFF U-16 2018. Saat itu, pertandingan berakhir dengan skor 2-1 untuk Indonesia di Stadion Gelora Delta, Sidoarjo, Selasa (31/7/2018). 

    Kekalahan itulah yang memicu Latt untuk ingin berjumpa lagi dengan skuat Garuda Asia di final Piala AFF U-16 2018. Dalam lima pertandingan di turnamen edisi ini, Myanmar hanya kalah sekali dan itu terjadi saat berjumpa Indonesia. 

    “Saya juga ingin kami bermain dalam kondisi stadion penuh. Tentu rasanya akan berbeda jika dibandingkan dengan pertandingan sebelumnya. Suasana stadion akan membuat pemain lebih semangat,” imbuh Latt.

    Dalam pertemuan Myanmar dengan Indonesia itu, hanya terdapat 8.745 penonton yang hadir. Animo suporter saat itu masih belum semeriah sekarang dalam menyambut laga Piala AFF U-16 2018. 

    Sampai saat ini, rekor penonton terbanyak turnamen ini terjadi saat Indonesia berjumpa dengan Timor Leste. Sebanyak 23.209 penonton hadir dalam matchday keempat Grup A tersebut. 

    Bertemu Thailand Dulu

    Akan tetapi, Myanmar harus terlebih dahulu melewati babak semifinal sebelum merealisasikan keinginannya itu. Mereka bakal bertemu dengan Thailand di Stadion Gelora Delta, Sidoarjo, Kamis sore (9/8/2018). 

    “Thailand memiliki gaya permainan yang berbeda dengan Indonesia. Saya sedang bersiap dan berusaha mengalahkan mereka. Semoga itu bisa kami lakukan dan bertemu dengan Indonesia lagi,” tandas Latt.

Nah, penasaran? berikut ulasannya.

    Jadinya, bukan hal yang sulit saat THK Dompet Dhuafa menebar hewan kurban ke seluruh pelosok Indonesia.

    Pengadaan hewan kurban THK memenuhi standar dan mutu kualitas

    Penilaian standar mutu yang digunakan dalam proses pengadaan, dan pendistribusian hewan ternak oleh mitra peternak pemberdayaan kurban THK terdiri dari beberapa parameter sesuai kriteria yang ditentukan. Penilaian mutu terdiri dari 4 parameter yakni bobot hidup, kesehatan dan fisik, pelaksanaan pemotongan, dan tepat sasaran.

Pengambilan foto pelaksanaan kurban, dan pelaporan tepat waktu kepada para pekurban yang sudah berkurban melalui Dompet Dhuafa.

    Keempat, yakni tepat sasaran. Sasaran distribusi adalah wilayah miskin. Selain itu, calon penerima manfaat adalah masuk kategori masyarakat yang kurang mampu.

    Pengendalian dan pengontrolan mutu hewan 

    Dalam pelaksanaan kurban, Dompet Dhuafa merekrut Tim pelaksana pengendalian mutu quality control (QC) yang memiliki beberapa tugas dalam menjalankan amanahnya. Hal tersebut bertujuan untuk meningkatkan kualitas pelaksanaan dan pelayanan THK mulai dari fase pengadaan sampai pemotongan yang syar’i kepada pekurban maupun masyarakat penerima manfaat. Tugas seorang QC di antaranya:

    Pertama, melakukan pemantauan, pengontrolan, dan pengecekan kondisi kesehatan dan bobot calon hewan kurban sebelum hari pelaksanaan. Kedua, pengecekan dan verifikasi lokasi pendistribusian dan calon penerima manfaat. Ketiga, pemantauan proses penyiapan dan pelaksanaan pemotongan hewan kurban. Keempat, pelaporan, dokumentasi, evaluasi, dan rekomendasi.

    Dari keunggulan dan keistimewaan program THK Dompet Dhuafa di atas. Tentunya masyarakat sangat berharap lembaga kemanusiaan seperti ini dapat menebar manfaat dengan melakukan pendistribusian hewan kurban secara merata, kepada seluruh masyarakat yang membutuhkan. Dengan begitu, tak perlu menunda-nunda lagi, segera tunaikkan kurban mu melalui THK Dompet.

    Ayo kurban sekarang dan sukseskan #Kurbanesia,MembentangKebaikan.

    The Passing of Dirk Vander Ploeg Publisher of UFO Digest

     

     

    I am very sad to learn of the passing of Dirk Vander Ploeg who I liked and admired for many years. When I first started to write about things considered paranormal I felt a bit confused on how to go about it and what I should or should not do, I also found myself lost in a world of new people with different ways of doing things and simply did not know how to go about getting my articles out for the public to read

     

    I sent Dirk an email asking if he would publish one of my articles adding that I was new and a bit confused on how to do things. Dirk wrote back and told me he would publish what I had sent and also called me to give me a idea what I would be dealing with and how to find my way in what was then a new area for me to be working in,

     

    Dirk gave me wonderful advice and explained to me how to go about the business of developing my blog and getting my articles out for the public to read. Dirk was always kind yet a man who told you the truth and those are the qualities I will remember about him.

     

     

    From that point on I continued to send my work to the UFO Digest and found that Dirk gave me very solid advice along the way on how to deal with the ups and downs of writing about the unknown as well as the challenges of placing my work out for public consumption,  He taught me that my road may not always be filled with rose petals or acceptance which I would need to handle and continue froward regardless of what blocks may be thrown in my path.

     

    Dirk Vander Ploeg was always a fair honest man who I came to respect and like a great deal. I will miss him a great deal.

     

    My thoughts are with his wife and family at this time and know we will all think of Dirk often and with fondness.

              I BELIEVE IN UFOS AND ALIENS - WHY YOU SHOULD NOT WAIT FOR DISCLOSURE      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Are you still waiting for the government or military to come out with a statement announcing disclosure, telling the world at long last yes they exist?  Let me give you a big hint --- don’t hold your breath!  You are simply wasting your time if that is what you think will happen and waiting for it is really a useless waste of your time.

    Click here to enlarge top photo.

    In the first place it has already happened and in the second I do not think society wants to hear it!

    I am sorry so many miss the forest for the trees but if you still are searching for the big announcement by some official big shot , well you will have a long wait on your hands,

    I am stunned by what goes on concerning this issue and feel as if I am lost in the twilight zone by the insane way this society handles this matter. It is frightening to me how easily the population is manipulated and how down right bull headed, close minded not to mention deaf dumb and blind we are to so many subjects that are considered topical and especially those considered unexplained or unknown.

    I even stopped using the word paranormal. I always used the word via its definition in the dictionary which is "Beyond the range of normal experience or scientific explanation".  When I try to use this word in relationship to aliens or UFO sightings I was being corrected that paranormal meant ghostly or occult like subjects. I finally gave up and stopped using the word for its meaning and opted for unknown or unexplained. It seems the subjects of the unknown also have separate rules which are only known by those who frequent the subjects considered not the norm.

    I find that across the board in the unknown world many things in the community are disjointed and confused when it comes to all the mysteries we claim we want answers to. There is lots of noise but it is used in very selective ways making sure we stay at loose ends, confused and divided on most things. Very little study or answers are found but many hands are in the old unknown community cooking pot and you know what they say about too many cooks in any kitchen!

    When it comes to the interest, investigation or research specifically of the UFO /alien issue  I can only come up with three reasons why anyone at this point in time who claims to be  interested in wanting some type of knowledge or disclosure of the UFO / alien subject that does  not  feel they already  have it.

    First they do not educate themselves on what is what and who is who and what has been already told or disclosed by those who control or I should say rule our space program. If you did you would fully understand you have already been given disclosure.

    Second would be those who fall in to the category of those who claim they want answers to the UFO/ alien questions but in truth  they  really only want to hear the answers that they  want to hear. This group of people have a fantasy of what they want the answers to be and are  not interested in any other information .  If it does not pan out to be whatever scenario they have built in their minds concerning these issues- they just do not want to hear it.

    Lastly are those who are dependent on keeping this an open ended subject and do not want to give up whatever comfortable maybe profitable place they have developed chasing after answers that you should already know if you truly wanted answers.

    Of course you also have those who have been running a fraud on the UFO community for a very long time and really do not want it to end. There are dozens of agendas all self-centered and all on the wrong side of the issue.

    The investigation of UFOs and possible alien visitation should have never become the self-serving open ended land of fakes frauds and in some cases insane confusion that sadly in many cases it has evolved to be That part of this community is long overdue to disappear in a sink hole somewhere so the real work that needs to be done can begin.

    I am really turned off about all of this and have developed a very sour taste in my mouth for the way everyone deals with these issues. I want answers. I know there are strange crafts in our skies and beings in them that harm and take good people against their will. I have seen the crafts and dealt with the occupant’s up close and personal and I still do not know what the hell these things are or why they invade our lives.  I want answers and help. In the past 30 years of really looking for answers to these  things do you know what I found?  I found nothing.  No help, no answers, no wisdom.

     I did find a few honest good people like me who also were searching and disheartened by not finding any answers or help.  If you are a victim of these unknown intruders forget anticipating any type of help besides those who may love you who are willing to stand by you. What you will find is that you are completely on your own.  If you are someone who has multiple encounters do not anticipate any type of protection or place to call for help. It does not exist Once again you are on your own .I feel this reaction is just not acceptable from this society at this point in time. We have to stop being a bunch of dumb manipulated fools and demand more and demand respect from those who are in control of the UFO issue. UFO’s are real. It is time we grow up as a civilization and get real about dealing with it.

    Years ago upon entering the UFO community I thought there had to be some type of organized serious help concerning the ongoing crafts being seen by millions as well as some type of investigative help to offer for those who have had close encounters with these unknowns . Sadly after spending a great deal of time searching I found a real UFO/Alien information and investigative community simple did not exist.

    You do have endless disorganized small groups, blogs, websites all over the world all doing their own thing but nothing helpful or structured to offer help or collect data or offer answers. What is obvious is that this subject matter has been given over to total chaos and confusion. Keeping the real information confusing and discombobulated. Having these issues in this way makes it simple for those who do have the answers to not provide them. All that is needed is to allow the subjects to wallow in the same confusion which makes it possible for the truth  to continue to be hidden endlessly. No one has to provide help or offer an explanation  to those who report witnessing these odd crafts and life forms. No answers are found and many good people continue to be offered up as a sacrifice for the personal agendas of our alien visitors. As long as our system of dealing with this-- is no system at all-- no one needs to do any explaining and nothing changes   

    This way of things works so well that when hard working serious investigators do seem to close in on real truth all that needs to be done is to release an avalanche of new TV shows concerning the topics so that once again it seems impossible to sort out what is going on. Simply swamp the airways with dis information and confusion so that  real truth is swallowed up by the fake and phony material leaving the public confused or simply disinterested in the nonsense that is flooded before their eyes.

    Do you know who Robert Bigelow is and what he means to your life?  If not you are not interested in space or the UFO question nor do you care what or who it is that invades our sky. You also do not know where your tax money is going by the millions more likely billions. Robert Bigelow should be a household name that is mentioned along with the words UFO’s, space station, space exploration and the moon not to mention every other word you see that relates to anything off the planet.

    Robert Bigelow along with a few others Mr. Bigelow has most likely chosen have taken control of our space program and will be the new private companies who will control our exploration in to space. Mr. Bigelow will be in charge of building our space station. He already has a head start as he is building one of his own as well as continuing our exploration of space. Our tax dollars will pay his private companies to move us forward towards the stars. I think he is a name worth knowing and one we should know all about. I will wish you good luck with that however as Mr. Bigelow is a very private person and does not like to be imposed upon with interviews or questions even if he is being paid by our hard earned tax dollars.

    On the Coast to Coast radio show on March 31st 2013 which was Easter night, late after most Americans were long in bed, George Noorey interviewed Robert Bigelow during a portion of that show. Mr. Bigelow openly told George that our space program would now be privatized and yes he was one who had a great deal to do with what would or would  not take place in our space program. He also talked about his desire to rush to not only take care of the space station but was in a race against China to build the first base on the moon.

    This man went on to discuss the fact he has been deeply involved with the investigation of life in the universe for many years. He is well known for being the owner of Skin Walker Ranch and admits he bought and controlled the now barely functioning MUFON website. He claims he bought the website and simply hired the wrong people to run the site which of course caused the complete failure of the site to work as a reporting agency. The truth is of course something we will never know. All that can be said is MUFON which could be a tower of UFO data and information is a non-working waste of time that was brought to its knees long ago purposely by those like Mr. Bigelow. Strange how the man who could not establish or run a simple UFO reporting agency now has been handed over our space program.

    Mr. Bigelow was asked by George Noory on that Coast to Coast radio program if he believed that UFO's and aliens existed. Mr. Bigelow did not skip a beat and answered yes of course there are UFO's and aliens and went about the business of explaining how most of the world knows this and deals with it except for North America who seems to reject the idea far more than other places in the world.
