Calbuco Volcano Erupting

Calbuco is a volcano in southern Chile. This one erupts fairly frequently averaging about every 20 years, sometimes quite impresively. The largest eruption during historic times in Chile occurred at Calbuco in 1894. It is erupting now. Evacuations have been ordered. Here is some amazing footage:

Ted's Sons

My brother, Ted, is nine years younger and in the US Army: he's career and following the family tradition. He has two sons, Theo (in glasses and 10) and Chris (blond and looking like a little clone of his dad at age 5, save the ears from his mom!).

While US Navy's FA-XX Will be Unmanned, US Air Force F-X 6th Gen Fighter Will be Manned

The Air Force will not follow the Navy into an all-unmanned future strike fleet, as pilots will be needed in the cockpits of most of its combat fleet for the foreseeable future.While the Air Force will increase its reliance on remotely piloted and possibly autonomous aircraft, there will be no replacement for a fighter pilot, Chief of Staff Gen.

Do Methane Storms Drive the Dune Orientation on Titan?

Methane storms as a driver of Titan's dune orientationAuthors:Charnay et alAbstract:Titan's equatorial regions are covered by eastward propagating linear dunes. This direction is opposite to mean surface winds simulated by Global Climate Models (GCMs), which are oriented westward at these latitudes, similar to trade winds on Earth. Show More Summary

Tainted love: Bees prefer food laced with harmful pesticides

Rather than avoid neonicotinoid pesticides, bees opt specifically for sugars that contain the chemicals – even though they might be detrimental to wild bees

Changing the Picture of Earth ’s Earliest Fossils

Changing the picture of Earth's earliest fossils (3.5-1.9 Ga) with new approaches and new discoveries. 2015. PNASNew analysis of world-famous 3.46 billion-year-old rocks shows that structures once thought to be Earth's oldest microfossils do not compare with younger fossil candidates but have, instead, the character of peculiarly shaped minerals.

Rising carbon dioxide levels stunt sea shell growth

Scientists have discovered that stunted growth can be a genetic response to ocean acidification, enabling some sea creatures to survive high carbon dioxide levels, both in the future and during past mass extinctions. Using natural CO2 seeps as test sites, the international team of marine scientists and palaeontologists have studied the way in which sea […]

Acidifying oceans could affect sea life, visiting researcher warns

Rising carbon emissions causing acidifying oceans will affect humans, a visiting researcher warns. Doctoral candidate and former Craighead Diocesan School student Allanah Paul spoke at Aoraki Polytechnic in Timaru on Monday about the effects of Earth’s oceans absorbing carbon dioxide. Paul, who has been studying for a PhD at the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research […]
