Rosetta Stone Eruption Could Help Explain Solar Explosions
"Dramatic molly staged eruption on the sun as revealed new clues. That could upside is solved. The long standing mystery of what causes the sun's powerful and unpredictable explosions a report in the astrophysical journal letters claims and covering this fundamental physics could hope scientists better predict the eruptions which caused dangerous base weather events on earth. The explosion contain components of three different types of solar eruptions that usually occurs separately making it the first time. Such an event been observed having all free eruption types together in the one event provides side with something of a soda of sola version of the resistor align them to translate what they know about each top of solar eruption in order to better understand the other types of eruptions in the process. Uncovering the underlying mechanism. Which could explain all types of solar eruptions. The study's lead author. Emily mason from this as god spaceflight. Centering greenbelt maryland. Says the vent drives home the point that these eruptions that caused by the same mechanism simply on different scales eruptions on the sun usually come they of three forms a colonel massey jackson or see me a jet or passion eruption colonel massey jackson's and jets a both explosive eruptions casting energy and particles in the space but they h. Look very different. Jets erupting is narrow columns of sola material while colonel massey jackson so say form huge bubbles that expand out pushed in sculpture by the sun's magnetic fields paschel eruptions on the other hand. Start erupting from the service but don't develop enough energy to leave the sun so most of the material force back down onto the solar surface this rosetta stone eruption occurred back on march the twelfth and thirteenth in two thousand sixteen it was observed by an ss solid dynamics observatory spacecraft as well as the joint nassar in european space agency solar and helius freak observatory spacecraft. Soho what. Scientists saw the ejection of a heart layer of sola material above magnetically active region on the sun's surface.
Wet Notes - 6-6-21
"This is wet notes. Scuba shack radio's news and information update for sunday. June sixth two thousand and twenty. One first up. I like give you a quick update from stewart. Coves dive bahamas stewart. Coves has moved to new location. In coral harbour. Coral harbour used to be home of dive dive dive in nassau scuba center. Both are now gone. Stewart just moved to this new property in the last month and he has bought and he has big plans for the place right now. The main building is under significant renovation. So he has constructed some temporary structures to accommodate divers while things progress. I had a nice chat with stuart on his plans to build out the facility. And make it a great place to do your diving. When in nassau we are really looking forward to seeing how everything evolves move when we get back there next year. Good luck. Stewart as you begin this new phase. I'm sure you will make it a world class diving operation in the may two thousand and twenty one edition of the divers alert network. Safety stop newsletter. They introduced the return of the dan tags. So what are they will. The dan tags are small round crafted aluminum tag. That can easily attach to your. Bcd you tag will be laser engraved with important emergency information. That will help in the event that something happens. The dan tag will include your name date of birth. Your dan membership number any specific medical information. You'd like to disclose like allergies or other medical conditions plus contact. They're pretty attractive. Bright red and are easy to order from the dan website. The cost of the dan tag is twenty dollars. Check them out at divers alert network dot org and go to their online store in personalized. Your tag a couple years ago magazine. Podcast did a series on ballast and it was hosted by allen. Kelsey well ellen is back with a new five part series called the sound aquatic the ocean and the antra pause the first episode debuted on may twenty fifth and will run each week through june twenty-first. This series is about the sound scrapes that scientists are recording the surprising ways that animals talking. Listen and how the cove nineteen pandemic triggered a quietness in the ocean that is renewing commitments to lower ocean noise. The podcasts are quick moving and entertaining. You can find them at hawkeye magazine dot com or on any of your favorite podcast apps. Oh and if you wanna know what andro pause means. The term refers to a global reduction in modern human activity and it was coined by researchers in june. Two thousand twenty article in nature ecology and evolution. Guess she learn something new every day now. Here's some discouraging news out of grand cayman and it doesn't have to do with the covid nineteen pandemic but rather about another disease outbreak among coral the stony coral disease or sc td. According to an article in the came encompass an isolated area containing disease was spotted at life off a smith cove. And that's along the south west coast and that's not good. The came in department of environment also reported infected sites amal along grand cayman's east coast the now suspects that divers and boat operators be spreading it although scientists are still not exactly sure how stony coral tissue disease spreads. If you look at the outbreak map you get the feeling that it could be divers or boat. Operators there are new disinfecting guidelines for local divers. Not sure how these will translate to us when the caymans open back up again as if we didn't have enough to contend with with covid nineteen now it stony coral tissue disease and our dive gear every day. Now we're learning about more destinations for diving opening up around the world. One of these locations is bon air. There was an article on dive. News wire from the bon air tourism department. That indicated that. Us flights will resume. On june fifth and the country is launching an island-wide health initiative american and delta will be resuming their wednesday and saturday flights from miami and atlanta. Unlike the bahamas of it appears that you'll still need an antigen or pcr tests even if you are vaccinated before entry and of course for returning to the united states. It sounds like you might be able to get these tests at the airport or at three other facilities on the island so even though bonaire will open. Be sure you're properly prepared. Hopefully in the near future you'll be able to travel without restrictions if you're fully vaccinated and finally here on wet notes. I just saw that. Bob ballard has a new book out and it's titled into the deep and memoir from the man who found titanic a couple of years ago. We met doctor ballard at the sixty fifth boston. Sea rovers clinic and his presentation was fascinating. Some sure the book will be equally fascinating. There was an article on cnn where they interviewed bob allard. And according to this article the book delves into some of the most defining moments of his personal life including the tragic death of his son. Ballard turned seventy nine in june and he said that depend pandemic. He had a lot of times on his hands. So he teamed up with christopher drew the new york times who's an investigative journalists to write the book into the deep by robert. Ballard would be a good one to add to your summer reading list. Well that's it for this edition of wet notes here on scuba shack radio

Interview With Stuart Cory: DPE and United Airlines Captain
"Stuart. What's going on. Welcome to the pilot by the podcast adjusting. Thanks for abc excited. Have you on our talking before about how this has been about a year in the works and what we know but most people don't know is you actually gave me my. Atp check cried Seems like forever. Go now in northeast. Ohio idea on a very cold northeast ohio day. That's right very very cold day. That was that was interesting I recommend everyone to make sure the heater works before you go take a check ride off. It's definitely fun in A good flight. that's for sure. I don't think i've ever been that cold in airplane. Yeah what's funny is an hour trying to line this up. I did that about Two or three months ago. I did a cheque right in that same clean and the heater tripped off during the flight in twin and ended up giving the his My gloves because he didn't have any clubs out. You know if you had clubs. Have i think i think transfer controls zala shit but we transfer controls for about ten seconds Period gonna during your check ride. So he's the is about. The cold was yeah it was. It was pretty rough so things things sometimes. Don't change that airplanes still active little
Determining the Age of Earths Continental Crust
"And you study claims its continental crust. First emerged some three point. Seven billion years ago. The findings presented at the european geological. Union's general assembly showed that the planet's light continental crust formed within the first nine hundred million years of the earth's existence. The continental crust is the layer of grew natick sedimentary amid them offic rocks which forms the continents in the areas of shallow seabed close to their shores is the continental shelves. It's list dance. The janik crust material and therefore floats on top of it unlike previous research which is based on strontium isotopes and marine cabinets which are usually either scarce or altered in rock more than three billion years old new study by scientists from the university of bergen looked at the mineral barrett which forms from sulfates emotion water mixing with barium from hydrothermal vents and thus holds an unchanging record aversion chemistry. Going back through time. The authors calculated the ratio of strontium isotopes in six different deposits of barrack from three different continents range in age from three pointed three point. Five billion years this allowed them to determine win with continental rock populated into the ocean and was incorporated into barrett the authors determined that the weathering started about three point seven billion years ago. That's around five hundred million years earlier than previously thought. The findings provide a new understanding of early ocean chemistry. As well as the onset of plate tectonics and even hope understanding the evolution of the biosphere because once process is like plate tectonics hope established the continents processes like erosion can begin to where the crucial minerals and nutrients into the ocean.
How are Black Holes Discovered?
"Black holes have been kind of a big deal ever since the first photo of a supermassive black hole was taken in two thousand nineteen black holes are exceptionally hard to find because they don't admit any light to pinpoint where they are. You look at how nearby stars interact with them and measure the x ray activity. The way that's yielded. The most black holes was to go. Look for x ray emission. The black hole stripping material off star as the black hole strips material off the star. It emits a bunch of rays. And those x-rays are very prominence. Scientists believe there are many more black holes in the universe. we haven't identified yet black holes that aren't interacting with a star and have very little x-ray activity trump theoretical models. We know that there are thousands of these non interacting black holes in the galaxy and scientists from all over the world very interested in finding these non interacting backhoes ohio state university professor todd thompson and presidential fellow tarin dude giant singer looked at the problem and set out to prove that black holes can be discovered in a different way. They set their sights on an unusual object in the constellation. Mono ceos the unicorn constellation there an unknown mass is causing a disruption in the shape of the light coming from surrounding older star called a red giant backhoes distort the shape off the red giant and the distortion creates changes in star over the face of the orbit of the back hall around the giant measure. How fast it's coming towards you and how fast it's going away and you can also measure. How star is distorted by the gravity of the nearby. Dark object and this particular star is in this is in this teardrop shape
A Record-Breaking Flare From Sun's Nearest Stellar Neighbour
"Astronomers have detected one of the most violent still aflame ever recorded in the galaxy exploding out of proxima centauri the nearest star system that the sun the massive flare reported in the estra physical journal is the largest ever recorded coming from proxima centauri a small special tie. Game red dwarf star located just four point two five light years away. Proxima centauri has twelve percent the mass and fourteen percent the radius of the sun. It is a surface temperature of thousand seven hundred and seventy seven degrees celsius and is better thousand times less luminous than the sun. it's known to have. At least two orbiting planets one of which proxima b. is similar in size to the earth and orbits within the star's habitable zone. That's the region around a star with temperatures would allow liquid water central for life as we know it to exist on the planet. Surface red dwarfs are the most common type of star in the milky way galaxy making up about three quarters of all the stars in the galaxy. And because they're relatively dim it's easy to find orbiting except planets around them consequently the most common known source of exoplanets. And for this reason proximus story has long been a target for scientists have been defined life beyond the solar system. However there's always been a problem with red dwarf stars and that includes proxima centauri. They produce violent flares spilling out huge amounts of energy and plasma into the surrounding space. Eventually this would erode away any atmosphere around by planet. A would also radiate anything on the planet surface and that includes any hope of finding life on the surface of proxima b. The study's lead author assistant professor mcgregor from the university of colorado. Boulder says red dwarfs flare a lot more than stars like the sun and astronomers are only now beginning to understand the magnitude and character of their flays mcgregor and colleagues observed proxima centauri for forty hours using nine ground and space based telescopes including the square kilometer. Ray pathfinder as gap nassar's hubble space telescope the atacama large millimeter submillimeter array radio telescope alma and nasa transiting exoplanet survey satellite tests. This marked the first time. Astronomers have had this kind of multi wavelength coverage of a stellar flare.
Ocean Currents Predicted on Enceladus
"New study claims. That ocean currents churning in the subsurface sees of this attorney an ice moon enceladus. The findings reported in the journal. Nature geoscience a based on the shape of enceladus twenty kilometer. Thick shell new hypothesis challenges. Current thinking that the moon's global ocean is a modulus apart from some vertical mixing driven by the warmth of the moons core and syllabus is a tiny frozen snowball just hundred kilometers wide. That's just a seventh of the earth's moon. It's the smoothest body. In the solar system is smooth as keeble and sold us attracted the attention of scientists in two thousand fourteen when a fly by the cassini spacecraft discovered evidence of subsurface after water was seen spewing out of guys alike eruptions through fissures in the circle tiger stripes in the ice neither moon south pole a spectral analysis of the water by cassini indicated that it was salty together with jupiter's iceman moon. Europa enceladus is one of the few locations in the solar system other than earth with liquid water. And that makes it an obvious. Target of interest for astrobiologists searching for signs of life but the oceans on enceladus are almost entirely unlike those earth earth oceans are relatively shallow with an average depth of just three point six kilometers. They cover about three quarters of the planet surface and a warmer at the top thanks to the sun's rays and cooler depth near the floor and they have carrots that are affected not just by the spirit of the earth but also by wind on the other hand and syllabus a piece to have a global spanning and completely subsurface ocean. It's at least thirty. Kilometers deep is cooler at the top. Of the i show and warmer at the bottom thanks to hate from the moon's core despite their differences the study's lead author analog from caltech says the oceans on enceladus do have currents based on the cassini measurements and observations on earth looking at the way ice and water interact drive ocean mixing.

Fine Art in Photography with Stuart Graham
"Are doing fine art. We're doing intentional camera movement. We're going to have a lot of fun and we're talking with one of the master. Practitioners of stewart graham store is in the uk as endeavour county on the south coast of the island. And you know his work from the frames. Facebook page is unmistakable. It's beautiful it's evocative. It is fine art photography. i think At its very best stewart. Welcome how are you doing over there today. Yes some good scott. Thanks to me. It's my pleasure. There's an awful lot that i want to talk about in not only in terms of your work but in in the technique of it and the aesthetic of it but one of the questions. I always find it immensely. Fascinating is how people came to the particular vision that they have you say on your website that when you thirteen year. You're older brother gave you a camera. And that moment you knew you were going to be a professional photographer. Tell me about that. Why why that moment. Something just clicked. He bought a zenith. Em o. is in es think it was. I asked if could you know if i could have a hold of it and he said yep but you know. Make sure you're doing drop. It and i was sat on the on the sofa next to him and i- i- framed his head and that was just it. It was almost like an epiphany it was like. This is what i want to do from now wondering but how how did you know. We're we're in the pre digital age here so you didn't have an image to look at afterwards. What is it about the act of framing. That got you excited there. It was just one of those things. I just thought this is amazing. And he'd already explained to me. You know how an esa works in the light comes. Through the lens hits the mirror it goes through the prism. And what you see in the viewfinder is what you will say. Yeah that was it. I thought wow you know we. We can capture things just like this. This is this is
'Real Housewives' star Jen Shah arrested on federal fraud charges
"Welcome back to another episode of reality casey. I hope that you had a great week. But i'm gonna tell you who add a week and that is gen shah for real housewives of salt lake city. She was arrested and charged this week in connection with a telemarketing scheme. That defrauded many of whom are over the age of fifty. Five according to a superseding indictment. That was unsealed this week. Persistent stuart smith was also arrested and charged tuesday. Both shot and smith appeared before. Us judge dustin pete in salt lake city. Federal court on tuesday manhattan. Us attorney andre strauss said jennifer shaw. Who portrays herself. As a wealthy and successful businessperson on reality tv and stuart smith who was portrayed as her first assistant allegedly generated and sold lead list of innocent individuals for other members of their scheme to repeatedly scam in actual reality and as alleged the so-called business opportunities pushed on the victims by shaw smith and their co-conspirators were just fraudulent schemes motivated by greed to steal victims money and now these defendants face time in prison for their alleged crimes.

Count Down for Australia's Return to Orbit
"If all goes according to plan almost exactly a year from now. Australia will officially become a spacefaring nation. Again of course. Back in the nineteen sixties. The warmer iraq rain outback south. Australia was one of the busiest spaceport in the world. Second only to cape canaveral in florida and on october the twenty ninth nineteen sixty seven. Australia became only the fourth nation on earth to launch a satellite at built into from its own soil win the scientific spacecraft reset one blasted off from space launch complex. La eight at woomera but with a lack of foresight and vision. That would leave. Most people stunned. Australia's dimwitted politicians squabbling amongst themselves. Only ever seeing as far as the next election decided there was no future in space. And that's a direct quote now remember. This is at the very height of the space race. The satellite communications industry was already growing into a multibillion dollar giant shining and bacon on the path to the future. There's no benefit of hindsight here. It was clear to everybody at the time accept. It seems australia's elected representatives and the level of stupidity. Australia's politicians is really quite mind blowing. Not honey do they. Turn down an offer for australia to become one of the founding members of the then fledgling european space agency but the government also sold off most of the technology and infrastructure which had been painstakingly developed at woma scrap value.

The river begins pursuing scientific goals. Regular commutes extending two hundred made his a more expected. Kate objective of perseverance as mission on is is astro biology including search for signs of ancient microbial life. The rover will also characterize the mashing geology and past climate. It'll pave the way for fiji. Human exploration of the red planet adult will be the first mission to collect an save martian rock and regular for future sample collection and returned to worth subsequent nasa emissions. In cooperation with the european space agency will then send a sample return mission to mars to collect the samples from the surface and return them to work for in-depth analysis. The mass twenty twenty perseverance mission is all part of masses moon to mars nation approach which includes adamus missions to the moon that will help repay for human exploration of the red planet.

The Most Distant Black Hole Ever Seen
"Astronomers of sudden you record for the most distant quasar ever found the quasar dating back some thirty point one. Three billion years is a thousand times more luminous than the milky way galaxy and is powered by the earliest known supermassive black hole a true monster more than one point six billion times. The mass of the sun the newly discovered quasar jazeera three one three minus eighteen o six and reported in the physical journal letters and on the pre press physics website archive dot. Org doesn't just provide new insights into the evolution of massive galaxies in the universe. It also raises profound questions. About how such massive black holes could have existed just six hundred thirty million years after the big bang. And that's a point underlined by the study's lead author for enjoying from the university of arizona. Who says black holes created by the very first massive stars simply could not have grown that large in only a few hundred million years the most distant quasars a crucial for understanding how the earliest black holes formed and for understanding cosmic realization the last major phase transition of the universe from the cosmic dark ages before the first stars quasars a powerful jets of mass and energy generated by black holes feeding on surrounding material as matter falls into a black hole it forms an accretion disc around the black hole event horizon a point of no return beyond which material falls forever into the singularity a place of infinite density and zero volume scientists understanding of the laws of physics breaks down material on the creation disc is ripped apart of the subatomic level by friction and gravitational forces releasing huge amounts of energy radiating out across the electromagnetic spectrum. The amount of energy emitted by quasars is enormous with massive examples such as this one being visible right across the entire universe. J zero three one three minus eighteen. O six was first spotted in data from the pan stars new kurt hemisphere survey with follow up specter from the keg in north telescopes to measure the size of its central supermassive black hole measurements from spectral lines that originate from the guests around the quasars.

Douglas Stuart Reads Kevin Barry
"Hi douglas debra. How are you. I'm alright welcome when we talked about doing this. You had originally been inclined to choose a scottish story to read on the podcast but in the end you settled on an irish one. Do you think that the two traditions are interlocked. The certainly have a very close relationship. But even in reading the kevin body still here realized how much of the pronunciation and the expressions weren't familiar to my ear and so although the close they are quite different in terms of This story it feels a little like a fairy tale in a sense. I mean it has that sort of fable like quality to it. And i feel so it may work in a tradition of irish fables. To what you think you think it's certainly in that tradition of irish oto storytelling. It starts off with You know the narrator. Saying so. I bought an old hotel in the fjord of killary and just the way he brings you into the story. You have a sense that not only as a fable but it's the type of story we would pass around in pubs and from most both and that i think is the irish tradition and certainly the scottish tradition. Because sometimes when we don't find ourselves in literature it doesn't mean we're not natural-born storytellers and those oral stories. Don't always get written down. That is absolutely true here. And i think that's part of the charm of this is just the mixture of these canisters. When you see it almost feels quite other-worldly at times. And i chose the story because first of all it's just totally entertaining but also because it made me nostalgic for a time when we could gather and and be together without thinking about the consequences about the weight that comes with with those gatherings. Yeah yeah having scenes in a in a pub with everyone talking it feels like another world. That's true did you read the story when it first came out in two thousand ten. I didn't actually. I was led to kevin body short stories. Because norma s- fan of his novel night bhutan. Jere and i was thinking about what i wanted to read. I love kevin. Barry and i was actually surprised to see. He has published many stories in the new yorker. Yeah the first one. I believe and Do you think that this one sort of fits in with his general themes it. Does i find him always writing about masculinity especially men on the margins. But what's interesting about this is. There's an absence of hard man or criminals or Petty gangsters that he often populate has novels these other short stories. These are just people who are gathering together in a pub And there's a poet at the heart of it. We'll talk some more after the story. And now here's douglas stuart reading fjord of killary by kevin berry fjord killary so i bought an old hotel on the fjord of killary. It was set hard by the harbour wall with moody amount across the water and disgracefully gray skies above. It rained two hundred. Eighty seven days of the year and the locals were given to magnificent mood swings on the night in question. The rain was particularly violent. It came down. Like handfuls of neal's flung hard and fast by a cd asli royal sky. God i was at this point eight months in the place and about convinced that it would be the death of me. It's end to the fucking world stuff out there. I said the quotas of locals and the hotels lounge bar as always ignored me. I was a fruitful blue in by their mark and simply not cut out for tough gnarly west of ireland. Living there were listening instead to jon murphy or alcoholic funeral director. Albury anything that fucking moves. He said bastards suicides tinkers. He said i couldn't give a fuck monkeys he said. Maria is the most depressing mountain you've ever seen by the way and it's gone looming shape filled almost every view from the water's edge hotel. The loans bars included the locals drank. Mostly bushmills whiskey and guinness stout and they drank them to great excess. I wiped they're slobs from the counter. With the bar cloth i had come to hate with a passion verging on the insane.
The Art & Science of Rock Gardening
"Thinking about it from the gardening perspective. When you say a rock garden will start there. What what what is a rock garden mean exactly. Well you know. It's a books of unwritten about it. Hundreds of books matter of fact but graham stuart thomas wrote the classic but it really can't comes back to the nineteenth century and victorian so to speak and europe is well when tourists started going to use. There were just stunned by the beauty of the flowers. And they want to take them home and they did they dig them up and take them home and they'd started by building these raucous and they were pretty dreadful and you can still see him an old neighborhoods around stuff so it really was about taking that the app spec home but that was the beginning. There's another beginning. Of course that goes back to china in in the third century when the poet chen or being during the six dynasties period here he describes a building a garden with rocks and wildflowers. So that the the asians have been doing that not alpine so much more woodland plants and that's really what most americans do because especially in the east and the west coast. That's what you go best woodland plants so my vision of rock guiding is not strictly alpine although the outlines of pretty cool you know your audience can't see the screen behind me but it's actually a garden in and utah. The belongs to a man named john steiermark and it's nothing but dry land plants from the american west and africa and a spectacular fall any alpine vista. So the truth be said what for me. What rock gardening as i had to sum it up in a sentence would be recreating a something natural around you so that you can have fun with nature and learn so for me. A rock garden could be a bog. Could be a prairie. It could be a a border of plants. Big ones little ones. that are more or less naturalistic. The bottom line is really wild plants. More than anything else i mean. We have cultivars of of these plants but for me in my experience rock gardening. Because i've been a member of the rock garden society for example for about fifty years and the scottish and english as well and was astonishing. Is this this community of people who really know. Plants like nobody. I mean botanist. I guess not planning on way but rock gardeners have this extraordinary ability to know the plan from the time it's the seed till it matures. And it's the rock gardeners. I think of the world who are some of the greatest explorers and plant worshipers. Shall we say yes certainly. And that is my favorite thing about these very specific groups and yes botanists an ecologists. They have their own interaction. But there's few people in the department. At least that. I work in in many of the departments. I know of that can grow a plant or really truly get to understand plant. Quite like gardner does and those specific groups when you start to find people that super specialize they are encyclopedia's of both knowledge and the artistry of it. And that's what excites me. The most about rock gardening is it. Is that sort of emphasis on species which excites me. I liked cultivars plenty enough but to me. The species did at the best nature invented the best and has unparalleled. But then you get to express yourself a little bit and try to recreate something this this honoring of nature honoring the landscape and rock. Earning really emphasizes that more than a lot of other types of guarding. Perhaps by is just trying to recreate or at least honor something. That nature has done over millennia. Which isn't easy but it's also very rewarding. When you do something come out of the other

He's he's been very very rare season. I think he was only the second time where they went behind and then ended up winning again we against southampton in the league. The game saint. Mary's but apart from that every time they were behind every time they considered. I couldn't come back and win it so to do that logically would be huge tonight. Plus also the quantification the momentum before the game leicester on sunday and also of course the two goes for obama. Young and the to assists for psychiatry. And i think we need to find you. Were to qualify an amazing player. Bouquets in one thousand nine dong cossack is he. I think he's that best plass sevi- mono people say about me on gets the goals and they rely on. His goal is true. But i think when i watch young suck apply. I think he's got a lot look at his temperament. Look at the way he plays the game. You can tell. Light loves playing football. He's got smile on his face. He's a choose infectious at the training ground when he's playing but talent wise he's got a wonderful less or you can goes pass. Players phone can go either way. Turn the pace again. He works back. He's got a lot really. I mean he must be a manager's dream robbo arsenals best player. he's right up. Two games in the corrected goes for obama yang and that was the difference between the two sides been fieger. I thought place nice football today. But they had no cutting edge going forward whereas cutting edge liquid trying to break off sidelines. Saka was coming in it and those little round the corner obama gang trying to running behind whereas been fake. If all that good fly times just had no cutting edge shocker arsenal just getting it down today just but last questions about about soccer. Yes he in my mind. He is arsenal's best and most important and ask those third goal goal. That takes them to the next round sums it up one more the defender a couple of crossovers defended doesn't know whether he's going to go. Righto left come back onto onto left and picks a fight bullets. Who just onsides 'cause on maybe man because of his two goals headlines but but for me also is a vote soccer and so much of their good plea comes from from his unpredictability from just clever. He is on the ball and for me without question. That teams suffers most without without saka more than anybody else other
Fry’s Electronics Has Gone Out Of Business, Closing All Stores In Greater Houston
"Also this afternoon. We're getting perspective. After a longtime electronics retailer announces. It's going out of business. Fries operated three stores in greater houston.

Alabama: The Newest Amazon Union Battleground
"Okay lena to understand. What is happening at this alabama warehouse. I'm guessing we should start by looking at some history. Yes and i spoke to just the person for that. Monday is gym specially and i'm a voca auditor for mercedes benz. Us international. We do audits on vehicles. After they're built jim as a very unique perspective on the union voted amazon because his mercedes plant. That was the epicenter of the last time. A super high profile labor battle played out in the state of alabama. And it makes sense that we'd be talking about auto plants because of course. A lot of foreign automakers have been opening factories in the south for decades. Now alex since the nineties yes they brought a lot of new jobs and jim you know he loves his job but he has a pretty glum view of why these foreign car companies came to the south in the first place the coming here because of the fact that there is not a fear of unions. You know they're saying we're just not educated. You know country bumpkins and whatnot. They don't know nothing about unions and don't care a lot of this stems from to work laws and all this other states which say that each worker can choose not to pay union dues still. The auto industry is historically pretty unionized. So the big auto union. The united auto workers decided to go after these new southern factories prompting intense anti union campaigns all labor experts. I talked to about unionization in alabama. Brought up this period of time. Like michael innes jimenez from the university of alabama the board that i'll never forget. Do you want tuscaloosa to be the next detroit. Let's throw race in there too. Obviously but seeing this post industrial city in a lot of pain and blaming the unions and then something incredible happened. workers at volkswagen in. Tennessee voted against the union and vw was the one company that actually wanted a union. It was the governor and republican lawmakers who fought against it from the air things just unraveled nissan workers in mississippi also rejected. The union at jim spits lease mercedes. Plant in alabama. Uaw didn't even petition for a vote. What it all comes down to is getting that vote and we haven't got that in twenty five years on three attempts so this sets the stage for where we are. Now this is. Why alina been asking you. How alabama became the first state to potentially have a unionized amazon warehouse. Right that's why so many people find it surprising. But i actually think that could be one of the three main reasons why this warehouse got to a union votes. So quickly we know amazon has stamped out union attempts and other places perhaps. The company also wasn't expecting such aggressive organizing in alabama compared to more traditionally Activist places. That's factor number. One are the other two to others are about the time and the place. Then let's start with a time. This is one of the things. I heard from the union. That's helping organize amazon workers in bessemer. The unions called the retail wholesale and department store union. And it's president. Stuart applebaum pointed out that this warehouse is only about a year old so it opened right as the pandemic started. I believe that the pandemic opened a lot of people is they understand now that they need a collective voice to stand up for themselves and to protect themselves. I also think that people had expectations when they came in that were not being realized. Amazon has been raking in profits during the pandemic which workers often bring up and also amazon went on a massive hiring spree and this by the way is often when workers ended up gaining some more power which is when they know that the employer needs more workers. The retail union folks say the best. My warehouse workers reached out to them quietly in the summer. They were describing grueling productivity quotas. They wanted to have more say in how they work. How they get disciplined. How they get fired. The union then mobilized support system of other folks from the region who are already unionized particularly workers from poultry plants. Okay and that brings us to your third factor alina. Which is the place right exactly. Professor michael innes jimenez pointed out something notable about alabama on that few people might realize if you follow the border and the coastline between california and maryland. alabama has the highest unionization rate for every state between california maryland. and then throw in tennessee. Also it's a pretty low rate. Only about eight percent of alabama workers are union members which is lower than the national average. But it is higher than all other southern states. And then you've got the specific location of the amazon warehouse which has bessemer. It's a working class. Suburb of birmingham. It's got early roots. In steel and mining and unionized labor. And another thing about bessemer is that it's a community that's predominantly black and the amazon unionization campaign is evoking social justice themes focusing a lot on respect in the workplace and of course this is all happening on the heels of the black lives matter protests. Yes exactly but the union also presented as part of its history. Its members marched with martin luther king junior in the sixties the union president talks about how in the south labor and civil rights battles have always been intertwined and so alina people think that all of these things at the time the place the context will end up making a difference and give alabama. The nation's first unionized amazon warehouse. the union. certainly hope so folks there told me more than half of the workers at the bessemer warehouse signed petitions for union shop. So they think this could be it of course amazon for its part has led a big anti-union campaign. They've got required meetings where workers were told. How union dues our waste of money. How great these jobs are already with all the benefits and the starting wage of fifteen dollars an hour and for context. The minimum wage in alabama is also the federal minimum wage which is seven dollars. Twenty five cents an hour which makes amazon starting wage of fifteen dollars an hour. More than double the alabama minimum. That is actually a big point four. Jim spits lee over the mercedes benz plant as he's watching this big amazon union. Vote play out it'll send a nami ripple but it's going to send one. It's going to let people know that. Hey even people fifteen dollars an hour. Seventeen dollars an hour can have union in their workplace. Bessemer warehouse workers will be voting by mail through the end of march. If this votes exceeds at an anti union place like amazon in alabama. This could turn a whole new page for both the

The sonny's high in the sky and the raise the a steep angle in winter. The sun's lower in the sky and the race track the surface at a more shallow angle in most parts of the world. The seasons begin on the day of the or equinox. Australia's a bit weird here. Seasons begin on the first day of a particular calendar month march for autumn june for winter september for spring and the first of december for summer. Okay let's start our tour. The night skies december in the west. Where midway up from the horizon is former halt the brightest star in the constellation pisces. Australia's the southern fish former halt is a young white spectral. Type main sequence star. It's about one point eight times that i'm under the sun and he's located just twenty five light years away. Ally is about ten trillion kilometres. The distance a photon can travel in a year at three hundred thousand kilometers per second which is the speed of light in a vacuum and the ultimate speed limit in the universe in two thousand and eight astronomers discovered planets orbiting around former halt. It's not known if anyone was looking back. Main sequence stars stars undergoing fusion into helium in the core the process which makes the shine astronomers described stars in terms of spectral types a classification system based on temperature and characteristics the hottest most massive immerse luminous stars are known. Expect your type o blue stars. They followed by spectra taibbi blue white stars then spectral type a wide stars spill type. F whitey schiller stars then spectral type g yellow stars. By the way. That's our son. Fits in then the respect. Your type k aren stars and the coolest and least massive stars are referred to a spectral type m red stars each spectral. Classification is also subdivided using andy murray digit to represent temperature with zero being the hottest. Nine the coolest and then. There's a roman numeral you add to that to represent luminosity thus giving you a full description of star so our son is technically classified as spectral type g two.

You'll see the bright star can purpose. It's the brightest star in the southern constellation of carina the keel and the second bright star star in the night sky of to sirius canopus is a white giant star nearing the end of its live. It's located around. Three hundred. ten light is away. It has about eight and a half times the mass of the sun but as expanded at the some seventy one times. The sun's diameter can opus.

The binary system is located some seven thousand five hundred light years away. Buried deep in the great nebula of corinna massive cloud of gas and dust stretching from six and a half to ten thousand lights away the primary star eddie. Corinna is estimated to be around one hundred fifty to two hundred times the mass of the sun with an incredible five billion times the sun's luminosity eight hundred times its radius and surface temperature up to thirty two thousand five hundred kelvin. This is the only stan known to produce. Ultraviolet laser missions the companion star although smaller than the primary it just eighty solar masses and twenty times. the sun's radius is even hotter with surface temperatures of around thirty seven.

Every five point five four earth years cocoon didn't gigantic twin lobe cloud of gas and dust known as the hmong culex emission and reflection nebula. This nebula was created when edit corinna underwent a spectacular eruption starting in eighteen thirty seven known as the great eruption it eventually reached its peak in forty three when it was one of the brightest objects in the night sky before gradually fading away again by eighteen fifty six eta carina and another slightly smaller eruption in eighteen ninety two. And it's again being steadily. Brightening since about nineteen forty eight a korean earn it surrounding shroud of gas and dust generate huge amounts of infrared radiation. Making it the brightest known infrared source in the sky as we said earlier both stars are reaching the end of their lives on the main sequence and are expected to go supernova any day now of course in astronomical terms any day now could mean tomorrow or could make a million years from now. No one knows exactly when it created all go supernova. If the style has a low middle as decomposition it could collapse directly into a stellar mass black hole and the no visible explosion or maybe a sub luminous supernova and a small fraction of set stars could produce a parent's ability supernova but at sola middle sitting above it should be sufficient mass loss before collapse to allow a visible supernova. Or kerr okay. Let's do this now. Looking just above the horizon you'll find the style that outshines can openers to take the title of the brightest down the night sky this of course the dog star sirius and knicks to it in the northeastern sky just above the horizon.

Because we've got more dialogue because at some Know the word is pretty good and look good things to say up. In the night sky including in the middle of the evening you got the milky white which is stretching all the way across the eastern sky from south to the north and starting down the south and southern cross which is one of the constellations. Everyone wants the well. It's upside down on. Its right down on the horizon so depending on where you might not even see it so if you around valetta cheat of sydney then clear which means you have any buildings and trees and illinois and you'll see the southern cross upside down to rot on the horizon if you down south of here in melbourne then you'll get a of the cross will need to be high. It'll be up about the horizon a bit. But if you're way i'm bridget or something you're not going to see the cross because it'll be below the horizon from whether you You have to wait for Later in the night and then southern cross we'll start to pump up above the southern horizon but little bit little bit east of south okay so that's down southern part of the movie wise at this time of the year. And if you and you should should be out to make the two nearest galaxies to iran we talk about these the the large and small mention any cloud and nas hayek southern cross is down.

You'll see that it seemed to be in this beautiful blue wispy navy Looks really really beautiful. it's fantastic little group of stuff and it'd be also the end the star cluster.

"In the 17th century routine observations were made today Thursday. Spot drawers still use the same technique. Well, we've created satellites that can see the sun in much more detail in recent decades drawing by hand keeps the centuries-long record consistent with the Sunspot number record goes back farther than any other instrument allowing scientists to analyze the son's Behavior over many many solar Cycles Sunspot numbers are collected from observatories around the world. You'd know during every eleven year cycle the number of sunspots rise from zero to a peek and then go back down to zero again scientists. Use these numbers to determine when a new solar cycle begins and how active a cycle is solar maximum the period of highest activity can vary wildly from cycle to cycle the more sunspots. There are the higher frequency of solar storms of all types some that create a raura and some that can affect power grids on Earth bit Sunspot number is at the only indicator we see these numbers are often combined wage. Other signs at the beginning of each cycle sunspots appear on the sun in the mid-latitudes for a brief few hours two days absolute minimum. There are often days without any spots at all with the sun becomes more active sunspots form closer to the Equator and can stick around for weeks to months these Sunspot patterns give Clues to what drives the solar cycle the twisting of the summer magnetic field like the sun has a magnetic field with a North and South Pole. But unlike Earth the sun's magnetic field becomes extremely complex. This is because the sun is made of plasma a Charged gas that generates electric currents as the sun rotates plasma around the equator moves faster than near the poles causing the magnetic fields to become stretched along. And then twist it then kinks in the magnetic fields burst through the surface as sunspots larger than the size of Earth as the solar cycle unfolds more sunspots appear and the magazine. Take field becomes more Tangled at the peak of the solar cycle. The sun's magnetic field flips the North Pole switches to the South and vice versa the cycle then ramps down ready to start a new life cycle scientists can eventually see the result of this flip inside sunspots using satellites most sunspots appear in pairs, like a magnet one side is positive and the other is negative or after they form they gradually disappear again, leaving behind remnants of magnetic fields that move towards the sun's poles eventually each po accumulates enough magnetic fields forcing. The sun's poles to flip at the peak of the cycle. Then new Sunspot groups appear with the polarities in the opposite direction scientists. Look for a consistent string of these new sun spots in order to declare the next billing cycle, but the transition between Cycles is slow and messy Cycles often overlap creating freckles of old and new sunspots on the south. At the same time scientist can only determine what in the new cycle when the number of new sunspots overtake old ones which can be six months to a year after the new cycle has begun wage these spots give us a visible tracker in recent years scientists have discovered another signal that's hard to see from Earth the strength of the sun's polls during solar minimum can help predict how active the next cycle will be after the polls have reversed at the peak scientists. Keep a close eye on it for the next few years if the magnetic fields accumulated at the polls becomes strong during lunch time. It's likely the next solar cycle will be an active one. If the build-up is week. The next solar cycle won't be as active while we use these indicators to track the sun permissions are still hard after all we've only had detailed satellite observations of the last four solar cycles and scientists are still learning about what causes the sun cycle off. Until we piece together those missing pieces the sun even with its 11-year clock will continue to surprise us this space-time still the come the asteroid bennu ejecting particles into space and the Sentinels 6 8 spacecraft getting ready for launch all that and more coming up on space-time.

When this is a Cyrus Rex spacecraft arrived at the asteroid bennu nation's scientists pretty quickly realized that they were orbiting something rather strange certainly a lot Stranger Than They had expected. Not only was the boulder-strewn asteroid shaped like a rough diamond its surface was literally crackling with activity. It was shedding spitting small pieces of rock into space astronomers rep position this as Dynamic particle ejection events. Now after orbiting the five hundred sixty-five meter wide Space Rock for more than a year and half scientists think they're finally worked out what's going on with the findings reported in the series of articles in a special edition of the journal geophysical research provides a detailed. Look at how these particles act when they're in space possible Clues as to how they're rejected in the first place and it even examines how their trajectories can be used to approximate Bill Newsweek gravitational field. Astronomers usually considered comets as the celestial objects in our solar system most likely to actively eject material. Of course, it's are composed of ice rock and dust off Ashley's Isis hated by the Sun the vapor fizzes from the surface dust and chunks of the comet's nucleus are flying off forming the Comets Cameron long Dusty Tales astronauts. The other hand a composed mainly of rock and dust with perhaps and small quantities of ice, but it turns out some of these space rocks can be surprisingly active. There are of course the so-called Rock comets asteroids with swing by the sun on Comet like orbits getting hot enough to crack rocks on the surface releasing energy in the process, which then flings these rocks into space. It turns off most Rock, it's actually started out as regular comments, but then lost so much of their Isis. They eventually simply became asteroids in this study of the asteroid bennu Cyrus Rex leads page. Interest Dente Loretta from the University of Arizona says while the boulder-strewn surface of the asteroid was always thought to be the Wildcat Discovery fact that particles are also flinging off the asteroid. It's provided more surprises Loretta and colleagues have spent the last year investigating the news active surface cameras on a Cyrus Rick spotted Rock particles being repeatedly launched into space during a jake 2019 survey of the asteroid. Now, most of these Pebbles sized rocks typically measuring around seven millimeters in diameter with typically fall back onto the new Surface under the asteroids weak gravity home. Sometimes even ricocheting back up into space after colliding with the surface for must Pebbles. It was just a short hop, but others took longer to return of the surface remaining in orbit for a few days and up to six thousand revolutions. And then there was some which were rejected with enough warmth. I think that's a scientifical term to completely escape from the new forming tiny micrometeoroids floating through space dead. By tracking the journeys of hundreds of objective particles your sister determine that thermal fracturing just like we see on Rock comets was taking place on the new Surface. It was happening as the astronauts would be repeatedly heated and cooled as a rotates. But interestingly, they also found the locations of ejection events matched impact locations were meteorites were hitting the surface of bannu that orbits the song the office now think it might even be a combination of these two phenomena all that more observations in needed me. Well, the author's robot a used these particles ejecting off the surface and then falling back down again as long I facility probes have been in his gravitational field see many of these particles are orbiting banoo far closer than what will be safe for the spacecraft and so their trajectories were highly sensitive to the girl rock and this allowed the authors to estimate the news gravity even more precisely than what was possible with the Cyrus Rex's instruments on average only one or two particles are rejecting. Each day, and because they're in a very low gravity environment master moving fairly slowly. That means they pose little threat to a Cyrus Rex which will attempt to briefly touch down on the asteroid's surface next month in order to scoop up some surface material for the sample-return portion of its Mission and that material may even include particles that had been injected into space before dropping back down onto the surface off if all goes as planned a Saurus Rex or a $10 worth in September 2023 with a cache of the new material ready for scientists to study in detail this space-time to come Sentinels 6A getting ready for lunch.

"And you study claims the solar systems largest planet Jupiter, probably form. The bet four times further away from the sun than where it is now for years. There's been growing evidence that planetary systems including our solar system stable, but rather a subject to oppressive planetary migration, both during their birth and early in the history. You see a lot of planets contain materials, which unlikely to condense out of the proto planetary nebula at the current orbital, distances from their stars also observations of except planetary systems fan evidence of numerous John GP sized guests planets, circling so close, it takes just a few days or even hours to complete H O, but around their host environments, clearly fire too hot for planetary formation.

Planetary guest is cheaper to begin migrating inwards to about one. One point five s genomic will units before reversing course and migrating outwards again to its current location. If uninterrupted this inward migration would have lived Jupiter in a close orbit around the sun like the recently discovered, how cheap it is seen in other planetary systems. But then along came satin. It also migrated towards the sun but being smaller, it migrated faster converging on Jupiter, and then being captured in two three residents with Jupiter, joints migration, a gap in the guest disc then formed, around Jupiter, and satin altering the balance of forces between the two planets, which then began migrating together set and passionately clean.
