Published on Nov 28, 2017

Wildlife Officials rescue baby elephant from a ditch. Elephant herd salutes the men before leaving In Kerala, India, a baby elephant falls into a ditch (or an abandoned well) and gets trapped there. As the family of wild elephants watches and waits on the other side of the river, local people and forest officials use an earthmover to help the baby get out. Watch when they come running and welcoming the baby, checking whether it is fine. The incredible moment then occurs when the elephant family head turns and salutes the humans, thanking them for saving their little one.

Intelligence, emotion and societal sophistication. Magnificent! Marvelous!

Number 10. Giant Trilobite. No, this is not the Indominus Rex from Jurassic World, the I-Rex was actually a prehistoric trilobite species… At more than 60 cm in length, the ‘Isotelus rex’ was the largest species of trilobite ever known – scavenging the ocean floor during the Paleozoic Era 500 million years ago… A specimen of Isotelus rex, from Churchill, Manitoba, is the largest complete trilobite ever found. It measured 72 cm in length and 40 cm in width… Trilobites were simple and adaptable organisms, managing to survive for 300 million years. Number 9. Giant Shrimp. Anomalocaris canadensis – say that three times fast – looked like a blend of giant squid and shrimp… It was around a meter long with a mouth full of razor-sharp teeth. Fossils found in China show that it was a massive undersea arthropod that lived 500 million years ago… It propelled itself through the water by undulating the flexible lobes on the sides of its body. Each side acted as a single ‘fin’, maximising swimming efficiency… Its powerful mandibles were used to catch large prey. It ate using its ‘serrated cigar cutter’ teeth…

O.o I enjoyed this! If you dig bugs, you will, too.

This is a compilation of short interviews with Ozark folks.. some are “back to the landers” and some are “old timers”.. originally videotaped and produced in the 1980’s. Several of the profiles are of people living in Newton County, Arkansas.

This is quite nice. It is all rather close to idyllic, but the need for loot is always there. But they’re all doing just fine at it.

Wow!

Gawd, I wish I could go. It is a tragedy that it is in the state it is. I have seen the old vids and like Harry says it was beautiful and was maintained. I agree that it was the volcano erupting that did it in. The ash was pretty deep. Everywhere. It likely overwhelmed and inundated the owner̻s budget and hope was just given up.

Anyway, be well, eh.

 

1968 Howmet TX: a Gas Turbine-powered racer in action at Imola circuit!

19Bozzy92
Published on Oct 30, 2018

During the 2018 Imola Classic event by Peter Auto my friends Davide458Italia, Italiansupercarvideo and I recorded this special race car called Howmet TX. Built in 1968 it was powered by a mid-mounted, two-stage gas turbine engine from Continental Aviation which had originally been developed for use in military helicopters. It was also the first turbine-powered car to win a race (two, to be precise). Using such a engine has led to solve some problems in the development phase such has the immense lag standard turbines have during accelerations plus even the deceleration wasn’t their best. So two wastegates were added between the two turbines working in tune with the throttle: as more throttle was applied the wastegates closed gradually, feeding more and more gasses to the second turbine generating power. On full “boost” engine was able to produce something like 300+ bhp. A great turbine advantage was the fact it didn’t require a standard gearbox, so a single one with just the forward gear was used, plus a quick-change differential that allowed to adapt the final drive ratio to each track. #HowmetTX #TurbineCar #GasTurbine

NASA’s Voyager 2 Probe Enters Interstellar Space

For the second time in history, a human-made object has reached the space between the stars. NASA’s Voyager 2 probe now has exited the heliosphere – the protective bubble of particles and magnetic fields created by the Sun.

Members of NASA’s Voyager team will discuss the findings at a news conference at 11 a.m. EST (8 a.m. PST) today at the meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) in Washington. The news conference will stream live on the agency’s website.

Comparing data from different instruments aboard the trailblazing spacecraft, mission scientists determined the probe crossed the outer edge of the heliosphere on Nov. 5. This boundary, called the heliopause, is where the tenuous, hot solar wind meets the cold, dense interstellar medium. Its twin, Voyager 1, crossed this boundary in 2012, but Voyager 2 carries a working instrument that will provide first-of-its-kind observations of the nature of this gateway into interstellar space.

Voyager 2 now is slightly more than 11 billion miles (18 billion kilometers) from Earth. Mission operators still can communicate with Voyager 2 as it enters this new phase of its journey, but information – moving at the speed of light – takes about 16.5 hours to travel from the spacecraft to Earth. By comparison, light traveling from the Sun takes about eight minutes to reach Earth.

The most compelling evidence of Voyager 2’s exit from the heliosphere came from its onboard Plasma Science Experiment (PLS), an instrument that stopped working on Voyager 1 in 1980, long before that probe crossed the heliopause. Until recently, the space surrounding Voyager 2 was filled predominantly with plasma flowing out from our Sun. This outflow, called the solar wind, creates a bubble – the heliosphere – that envelopes the planets in our solar system. The PLS uses the electrical current of the plasma to detect the speed, density, temperature, pressure and flux of the solar wind. The PLS aboard Voyager 2 observed a steep decline in the speed of the solar wind particles on Nov. 5. Since that date, the plasma instrument has observed no solar wind flow in the environment around Voyager 2, which makes mission scientists confident the probe has left the heliosphere.

“Working on Voyager makes me feel like an explorer, because everything we’re seeing is new,” said John Richardson, principal investigator for the PLS instrument and a principal research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge. “Even though Voyager 1 crossed the heliopause in 2012, it did so at a different place and a different time, and without the PLS data. So we’re still seeing things that no one has seen before.”

In addition to the plasma data, Voyager’s science team members have seen evidence from three other onboard instruments – the cosmic ray subsystem, the low energy charged particle instrument and the magnetometer – that is consistent with the conclusion that Voyager 2 has crossed the heliopause. Voyager’s team members are eager to continue to study the data from these other onboard instruments to get a clearer picture of the environment through which Voyager 2 is traveling.

“There is still a lot to learn about the region of interstellar space immediately beyond the heliopause,” said Ed Stone, Voyager project scientist based at Caltech in Pasadena, California.

Together, the two Voyagers provide a detailed glimpse of how our heliosphere interacts with the constant interstellar wind flowing from beyond. Their observations complement data from NASA’s Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX), a mission that is remotely sensing that boundary. NASA also is preparing an additional mission – the upcoming Interstellar Mapping and Acceleration Probe (IMAP), due to launch in 2024 – to capitalize on the Voyagers’ observations.

“Voyager has a very special place for us in our heliophysics fleet,” said Nicola Fox, director of the Heliophysics Division at NASA Headquarters. “Our studies start at the Sun and extend out to everything the solar wind touches. To have the Voyagers sending back information about the edge of the Sun’s influence gives us an unprecedented glimpse of truly uncharted territory.”

While the probes have left the heliosphere, Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 have not yet left the solar system, and won’t be leaving anytime soon. The boundary of the solar system is considered to be beyond the outer edge of the Oort Cloud, a collection of small objects that are still under the influence of the Sun’s gravity. The width of the Oort Cloud is not known precisely, but it is estimated to begin at about 1,000 astronomical units (AU) from the Sun and to extend to about 100,000 AU. One AU is the distance from the Sun to Earth. It will take about 300 years for Voyager 2 to reach the inner edge of the Oort Cloud and possibly 30,000 years to fly beyond it.

The Voyager probes are powered using heat from the decay of radioactive material, contained in a device called a radioisotope thermal generator (RTG). The power output of the RTGs diminishes by about four watts per year, which means that various parts of the Voyagers, including the cameras on both spacecraft, have been turned off over time to manage power.

“I think we’re all happy and relieved that the Voyager probes have both operated long enough to make it past this milestone,” said Suzanne Dodd, Voyager project manager at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California. “This is what we’ve all been waiting for. Now we’re looking forward to what we’ll be able to learn from having both probes outside the heliopause.”

Voyager 2 launched in 1977, 16 days before Voyager 1, and both have traveled well beyond their original destinations. The spacecraft were built to last five years and conduct close-up studies of Jupiter and Saturn. However, as the mission continued, additional flybys of the two outermost giant planets, Uranus and Neptune, proved possible. As the spacecraft flew across the solar system, remote-control reprogramming was used to endow the Voyagers with greater capabilities than they possessed when they left Earth. Their two-planet mission became a four-planet mission. Their five-year lifespans have stretched to 41 years, making Voyager 2 NASA’s longest running mission.

The Voyager story has impacted not only generations of current and future scientists and engineers, but also Earth’s culture, including film, art and music. Each spacecraft carries a Golden Record of Earth sounds, pictures and messages. Since the spacecraft could last billions of years, these circular time capsules could one day be the only traces of human civilization.

Voyager’s mission controllers communicate with the probes using NASA’s Deep Space Network (DSN), a global system for communicating with interplanetary spacecraft. The DSN consists of three clusters of antennas inGoldstone, California; Madrid, Spain; and Canberra, Australia.

The Voyager Interstellar Mission is a part of NASA’s Heliophysics System Observatory, sponsored by the Heliophysics Division of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington. JPL built and operates the twin Voyager spacecraft. NASA’s DSN, managed by JPL, is an international network of antennas that supports interplanetary spacecraft missions and radio and radar astronomy observations for the exploration of the solar system and the universe. The network also supports selected Earth-orbiting missions. The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, Australia’s national science agency, operates both the Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex, part of the DSN, and the Parkes Observatory, which NASA has been using to downlink data from Voyager 2 since Nov. 8.

Hahaha, Vger has left the building! Now they’re both out there.

This is so cool, this is seriously exciting to me.

Now we’ll be able to clearly see the real makeup of space and be free of the noise of the heliosphere. There will be revelations and discoveries and wondrous new surprises. I have learned in my decades that the farther out you go, the weirder it gets.

Of this there is no doubt and for this we are grateful.

For years I have anxiously awaited audio from Mars. And I am smitten… regardless of the fact that this is from a seismometer and not a microphone.

I seem to recall being told a good while back that there’s a mic on Curiosity, but I am not sure, now, as we’ve certainly not heard a peep from it if it exists.

WooHoo! It’s new and it’s a biggun!

What has two short, chunky arms, a mane of feathery gills, and a sleek, green-marbled, eel-like body as long as your leg? No guesses? Meet the reticulated siren, a massive, two and a half foot-long salamander, described for the first time in a paper published today in the journal PLOS ONE, hailing from the remote, secluded wilds of *checks notes* southern Alabama and the Florida Panhandle.

Sirens are a small family of unusual salamanders found throughout the Southeastern U.S. and parts of Mexico. They are entirely aquatic, living in swamps and ponds and keeping their bushy external gills through adulthood. Ranging from a few inches to over three feet long, sirens have shrimpy forelimbs, and have ditched their hindlimbs altogether, leaving only a long, eel-like body and tail fin. Their name comes from their mermaid-adjacent body plan and their occasional “singing” and croaking.

Knowledge of the reticulated siren didn’t just spring into being overnight. For decades, the salamander had an almost mythical status in herpetology circles.

Sean Graham, a biologist at Sul Ross State University, author of American Snakes, and lead author on the new study, first heard about the enigmatic “leopard eel” in the early 2000s. “It was almost a rumored thing, almost like a unicorn,” he recounted. “Some biologists were familiar with it and had seen it.”

Hearing those biologists’ stories and seeing the handful of preserved specimens that were collected years ago left an impression. “I thought ‘holy crap, this is a big siren species that’s really obviously different,’ boldly colored and crazy looking!” Graham said. About ten years ago, while in graduate school at Auburn University, he mentioned the siren’s possible existence to then-fellow student David Steen, now a research ecologist at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center and coauthor on the study.

“We wanted to describe this mysterious siren that others had noted as occurring in southern Alabama,” Steen said. “But we had no real claim to the project; we knew that if we wanted to work on this species we had to find one in the wild ourselves.”

Graham and Steen periodically visited the salamander’s purported turf, but came back empty handed every time. Then, in 2009, Steen captured one in the Florida Panhandle.

Read the rest and find out how they did it…
Nearly Mythical 3-Foot-Long Swamp Salamander Is Officially a Real Species

I have loved salamanders ever since I started exploring the woods… well before my 10th. They’re just neat.

Westall teacher discussing the UFO encounter – Andrew Greenwood testimony 1966 [QUFOSR]

QUFOSR
Published on Nov 15, 2018

This video contains audio of James E McDonald interviewing Westall high school teacher Andrew Greenwood who witnessed the UFO on April 6 1966. The interview occured on June 28 1967. This is the only known sighting report by an adult regarding the infamous Westall UFO incident. I don’t think this has ever been posted online before and it is a huge piece of evidence for the case. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westall… www.qufosr.com

As regulars will know, Westall is one of my favorite cases.

This is a truly fabulous find and resource. This is what really happened in that schoolyard. Simply amazing in the level of detail presented.

It doesn’t get any better than this, folks.

From the ATS thread Teacher Andrew Greenwood’s Actual 1967 Audio Testimony On The 1966 Westall UFO Sighting where I found this (edited):

June 28, 1967, was that historic day when Dr. James E. McDonald, an American physicist, interviewed Andrew Greenwood, a science teacher present at Westall High School in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia on April 6, 1966, that even more historic day when all this happened.

The basic story:

…A school girl raced into Greenwood’s class and said there was a UFO hovering outside the school
…At first he didn’t think nothing of it, but eventually went outside, a short time later, during a recess break
…There were @300 school children already outside observing this UFO
…It took a while for Greenwood to see the craft because it was silvery gray in color and matched the overcast sky
…It was a cylindrical, cigar shaped object, that had a “bulge” in the middle and appeared to be 2/3 the length of a Cessna light aircraft
…From where he was standing, the object was @1/2 mile away, at its farthest point, but eventually traveled within 1/4 mile from the witnesses
…As the UFO hovered, it appeared to move up and down. It would accelerate and disappear out of sight and then reappear in another part of the sky
…Greenwood saw a small, light aircraft approach the UFO and the craft appeared to play “cat and mouse” with it
…Greenwood and the students saw 5 additional light aircraft flying in the air, at the time of this sighting, but a nearby airport denied that there were any planes in the sky
…The UFO seemed to travel behind a tall row of pine trees @600 yards away from the witnesses
…Some of the faculty and school children went towards this area
…Some claimed the UFO landed behind the row of pine trees and a school girl stated that she saw windows on the craft
…The UFO was in sight for @25 minutes, before accelerating so fast that it seemed to disappear
…Some teachers, who saw the UFO, kept quiet about what they saw, after a headmaster claimed the UFO sighting was “a lot of nonsense” at a school assembly
…An Air Force officer came to the school two to three days after the sighting to investigate

Yay! This is such an important piece of evidence. The level of detail is simply fabulous and I am so pleased someone has found and shared it.

Lyrics

At first mom and papa called their little boy Ned
They raised him on the banks of the river bed
A houseboat tied to a big tall tree
a home for my papa and my mama and me

The clock strikes three papa jumps to his feet
Already mama’s cookin’ papa somethin’ to eat
At half past papa he’s ready to go
he jumps in his piro headed down the bayou

He’s got fishin’ lines strung across the Louisiana Rivers
Gotta catch a big fish for us to eat
Headin’ traps in the swamps
catchin’ everythin’ he can

Gotta make a livin’ he’s a Louisiana man
gotta make a livin’ he’s a Louisiana man

Muskrat hides a hangin’ by the dozen
even got a lady mink a muskrat’s cousin
Pile of hide drying in the hot hot sun
tomorrow papa’s gonna turn them into mon

Well they call mama Rita and my daddy Jack
A little baby brother on the floor that’s Mac
Riz and Liz are the family twins
big brother Ed’s on the bayou fishin’

On the river float papa’s great big boat
that’s how my papa goes into town
He takes every bit of the night and day
Then ever reach the place where the people stay

I can hardly wait till tomorrow comes around
That’s the day my papa takes the furs to town
Papa promised me that I could go
even let me see a cowboy show

I saw the cowboys and Indians for the first time then
I told my papa  I gotta go again
Papa said son we got the lines to run
we’ll come back again first there’s work to be done

He’s got fishin’ lines…

The Mars Rover has found a strange shiny object on the Mars Surface.

image credits: NASA / JPL / CalTech

NASA think they may have an idea what it could be, but they are prepared to be surprised.

Nasa has spotted a strange, shiny object lying on the Martian surface. The planet is largely red, dusty and bland, meaning that anything unusual stands out.

The latest discovery is one such object: a shiny lump that is visible on the surface. Now the team behind the Curiosity rover intends to have a proper look at the object, in the hope of finding out what it is.

Though they have their suspicions, they are ready to be surprised.

www.independent.co.uk…

They are actually going to drive over there and check it out. That’s yuge.

They’ve already shot it thrice with a laser for chemical analysis. Currently the main thought is meteorite, but the lab’s still hummin,’ so who knows, eh.

This is a nice thing.

Especially the level of interest. Seems this has been trending in a positive direction for a while now and trust me, it is a great sign (and omen, even) for the future.

Andrewsarchus—the World’s Largest Predatory Mammal

by Bob Strauss
Updated September 25, 2018

Andrewsarchus is one of the world’s most tantalizing prehistoric animals: its three-foot-long, toothstudded skull indicates that it was a giant predator, but the fact is that we have no idea what the rest of this mammal’s body looked like.

Andrewsarchus Is Known by a Single Skull

All we know about Andrewsarchus amounts to a single, three-foot-long, vaguely wolf-shaped skull, discovered in Mongolia in 1923. While the skull clearly belongs to some type of mammal—there are obvious diagnostic markers by which paleontologists can distinguish between reptilian and mammalian bones—the lack of an accompanying skeleton has resulted in nearly a century of confusion, and debate, about what type of animal Andrewsarchus really was.

Andrewsarchus is one of the world’s most tantalizing prehistoric animals: its three-foot-long, toothstudded skull indicates that it was a giant predator, but the fact is that we have no idea what the rest of this mammal’s body looked like.

The Fossil of Andrewsarchus Was Discovered by Roy Chapman Andrews (My Hero!)

rca

During the 1920’s, the swashbuckling paleontologist Roy Chapman Andrews, sponsored by the American Museum of Natural History in New York, embarked on a series of well-publicized fossil-hunting expeditions to central Asia (then, as it still is now, one of the most remote regions on earth). After its discovery, Andrewsarchus (“Andrews’ ruler”) was named in his honor, though it’s unclear whether Andrews bestowed this name himself or left the task to other members of his team.

Wonderful, wonderful!

This Shelby G.T. 350 may be owned by a 98 year old lady as her daily driver. Went for more power so she needed a third hood scoop perched atop Carroll’s fine factory pair. Then again it might not. It might even be a hodgepodge tribute wagen. Or something.

Dean Martin – Baby It’s Cold Outside

Oda
Published on Nov 20, 2008

Baby It’s Cold Outside. Composed by Frank Loesser in 1944. Recorded By Dean Martin in 1959

I have always thought this song was adorable. It’s cute and coy and sexy without saying anything untoward — but in the oh-so-proper ways of the time it was written in that lasted well after, at least till I was well into ‘growing up.’

But now, some freak of nature from deep in the nooks and crannies of our media driven culture was offended, so a putrid wuss of a corporation bows to the putz. That is repulsive and spineless. Oh, wait, is “nooks and crannies” offensive? It is? Good!

This country is freakin’ doomed.

Lyrics
(I really can’t stay) But baby it’s cold outside
(I’ve got to to go away) But baby it’s cold outside
(This evening has been) Been hoping you’d drop in
(So very nice) I’ll hold your hands, they’re just like ice
(My mother will start to worry) Beautiful what’s your hurry?
(My father will be pacing the floor) Listen to the fireplace roar
(So really I’d better scurry) Beautiful please don’t hurry
(Well maybe just half a drink) Put some records on while I pour
(The neighbors might think) Baby it’s bad out there
(Say what’s in this drink) No cabs to be had out there
(I wish I knew how) Your eyes are like starlight now
(To break this spell) I’ll take your hat, your hair looks swell
(I ought to say no no) Mind if I move in closer
(At least I’m gonna to say I tried) What’s the sense of hurting my pride
(I really can’t stay) Baby don’t hold out
Baby it’s cold outside
(I simply must go) Baby it’s cold outside
(The answer is no) But baby it’s cold outside
(This welcome has been) How lucky that you dropped in
(So nice and warm) Look out the window at that storm
(My sister will be suspicious) Gosh your lips look delicious
(My brother will be there at the door) Waves upon a tropical shore
(My maiden aunt’s mind is vicious) Oh, your lips are delicious
(But maybe just a cigarette) Never such a blizzard before
(I got to get home) But baby you’d freeze out there
(Say lend me a coat) It’s up to your knees out there
(You’ve really been grand) I thrill when you touch my hand
(But don’t you see) How can you do this to me
(There’s bound to be talk tomorrow) Think of my life long sorrow
(At least they’ll be plenty implied) If you caught pneumonia and died
(I really can’t stay) Get over that old doubt
Oh baby it’s cold

One local radio station has decided they “ought to say no, no no” to the now-controversial Christmas song, “Baby It’s Cold Outside.”
WDOK 102.1, a Cleveland-based station that exclusively plays Christmas music during the holidays, announced this week the song would be removed from rotation after a listener called to say it was inappropriate amid the #MeToo movement.
“Baby It’s Cold Outside” has been a source of debate for the past few years. Some argue it displays key signs of rape culture:

This is offensive to women? Has anybody heard any hip hop or rap song lyrics? Those guys get invited to the White House. And celebrated by the Democrats.

Rape culture . WOW.

But mention real rape cultures in Muslim countries or god forbid rape gangs in London and you……

Well you get it.

I am seriously scared for the young people and for the final years of folk my age. The world has gone utterly insane. People are not people any more. I can’t see good things happening if people behave like this.

What can we do? How can we make human beings human again? How can we wash the Communist out?
