Flying Fish Evolved to Escape Prehistoric Predators

 

The first flying fish may have evolved to escape marine reptile predators, researchers say.

These new findings hint that marine life may have recovered more quickly than before thought after the greatest mass extinction in Earth's history, scientists added.

Modern flying fish are capable of gliding through the air as much as 1,300 feet (400 meters) in 30 seconds, with a maximum flight speed of up to about 45 mph (72 kph), probably flying mainly to escape from predators such as dolphins, squid and other fish. Modern flying fish live in tropical and subtropical waters, and no known fossil specimens are older than 65 million years.

Medieval Female Skeleton May Be Church Founder

 

Richard III and his queen, Anne of Neville, appear in a stained glass window in Cardiff Castle.

A skeleton found in the same boneyard where English King Richard III may have been buried might be one of the founders of the Church of the Grey Friars, archaeologists announced Tuesday (Oct. 30).

Scientists have yet to examine the female skeleton, though they are subjecting a male skeleton suspected to be Richard III's to rigorous testing. Nevertheless, the researchers said it was no surprise to find a woman buried at the medieval church in Leicester, England.

"We know of at least one woman connected with the friary, Ellen Luenor, a possible benefactor and founder with her husband, Gilbert," said Mathew Morris, the site director of the University of Leicester Archaeological Services.

How Sandy Compares to the Worst US Natural Disasters

 

This wind maps shows the spiral of post-tropical storm Sandy's winds at 9:59 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, Oct. 29.  

The damage caused by superstorm Sandy in the United States is still being catalogued. But so far, it seems the storm will enter the pantheon of top disasters the country has ever faced.

"Make no mistake about it, this is a devastating storm, maybe the worst we have ever experienced," New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said today (Oct. 30).

Flooding caused major damage along the East Coast, but wind and fire contributed, too. According to Bloomberg, a single fire in Queens caused by the storm destroyed more than 80 homes. As of Tuesday morning, the storm's U.S. death toll had reached 38, according to the Associated Press, and more than 8.2 million people remained without power.

Jurassic Turtle Graveyard Found in China

 

"This site has probably more than doubled the known number of individual turtles from the Jurassic," said University of Tübingen turtle expert Walter Joyce. "Some of the shells were stacked up on top of one another in the rock." Joyce added that this pile-up is called a bone bed.

Scientists say they've uncovered a pile of 1,800 Jurassic turtle skeletons in China that had been swept into a mass grave millions of years ago.

The fossilized mesa chelonia turtles were found in China’s northwest province of Xinjiang in what paleontologists call a "bone bed" with some of the shells stacked up on top of each other in the rock.

Amazing New Space Photo Shows Sandy Rolling Inland

 

A stunning new image from space shows superstorm Sandy, now a post-tropical cyclone, still churning over the eastern United States on Tuesday (Oct. 30).

NOAA's GOES-13 weather satellite captured the photo of the storm moving inland at 6:02 a.m. EDT (1302 UTC). At that time, Sandy's giant swirl of clouds was covering most states east of the Mississippi River and north of Georgia.

As of 11:00 a.m. Tuesday, Sandy was centered about 120 miles (190 kilometers) east-southeast of Pittsburgh, slowly moving westward and weakening over Pennsylvania, according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Miami. The storm's maximum sustained winds were 45 mph (72 kph), down from 90 mph (150 kph) Monday when it was a Category 1 hurricane.

Mars Dirt Similar to Hawaiian Volcanic Soil

The first-ever in-depth analysis of Martian dirt reveals a mineralogical makeup similar to that of Hawaiian volcanic soils, researchers announced today (Oct. 30).

The results come from NASA's Mars rover Curiosity, which recently studied a scoop of Red Planet dirt with its Chemistry and Mineralogy instrument, or CheMin, for the first time.

"This Martian soil that we've analyzed on Mars just this past week appears mineralogically similar to some weathered basaltic materials that we see on Earth," David Bish, a CheMin co-investigator with Indiana University, told reporters. He cited as an example the "weathered soils on the flanks of Mauna Kea in Hawaii."

Brain's Complex Clock Explains Our Eerie Sense of Time

 

Independent of a watch or the sun's position in the sky, humans somehow can figure out how much time has ticked by, and a new study reveals how. The study suggests the brain has no master clock, but instead that every individual brain circuit can learn to tell time.

"People think when you need to time something, that there's some clock circuit in the brain that we look to," said study co-author Geoffrey Ghose, a University of Minnesota neuroscientist. "What our study indicates is it's actually very different. For every little task or every little action or decision you make, you could potentially develop timing representations."

Newsflash: George Bush Made U.S. Dependent on Russia

 
 Obama failed space program; Romney would revitalize it, opinon, Gene Cernan, Orlando Sentinel.
 
"Frankly, the world's leading space-faring nation shouldn't have to pay Russia for rides to the International Space Station. That's not only an insult to the hundreds of women and men like me who have built a legacy based on, literally, reaching for the stars, but it also hurts the local economy and puts local jobs at risk at a time when Florida's unemployment rate is already higher than the national average."

Keith's note: With all due respect, Gene, a little history lesson (not that you care): when George Bush decided to shut down the Space Shuttle program in 2004, there was a blatant and openly admitted gap in American human access to space that no American spacecraft - Constellation or otherwise - would have met under even the most optimistic scenarios until 2014-2018 (that date constantly slipped). Your good friend and ghostwriter Mike Griffin openly admitted that repeatedly. George Bush set us on the path to paying Russia to gain access to the ISS - regardless of what timeline you chose to refer to. He then proceeded to underfund Constellation and did not push Congress for funding so as to make it incapable of achieving its avowed goals.

Police allowed to install cameras on private property without warrant

Court: Fourth Amendment allows 24/7 camera surveillance of "open fields."

A federal judge has ruled that police officers in Wisconsin did not violate the Fourth Amendment when they secretly installed cameras on private property without judicial approval.

The officers installed the cameras in an open field where they suspected the defendants, Manuel Mendoza and Marco Magana, were growing marijuana. The police eventually obtained a search warrant, but not until after some potentially incriminating images were captured by the cameras. The defendants have asked the judge to suppress all images collected prior to the issuance of the search warrant.

But in a Monday decision first reported by CNET, Judge William Griesbach rejected the request. Instead, he approved the ruling of a magistrate judge that the Fourth Amendment only protected the home and land directly outside of it (known as "curtilage"), not open fields far from any residence.

The Fourth Amendment protects "the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures." The court ruled that under applicable Supreme Court precedents, "open fields, as distinguished from curtilage, are not 'effects' within the meaning of the Fourth Amendment."

Why Manhattan Is the Worst Place for a Data Center — and the Best

 

Hurricane Sandy may have come and gone, but it’s still causing problems inside the massive computing facilities erected on the southern tip of Manhattan. 

When the hurricane crashed into Lower Manhattan on Monday, two major data centers were seriously damaged as waters flooded their basements. One went completely dark, knocking out several big-name websites, including Gawker, Gizmodo, and The Huffington Post, and the other could go down in a matter of hours. 

Both basements — 33 Whitehall Street and other just blocks away at 75 Broad — house fuel pumps that plug into generators designed to provide backup power in the event of a blackout. The hurricane had already knocked out the local power grid, and when it sunk the pumps, these massive computing facilities also lost at least part of their Plan B.

U.S. Weather Fatalities In One Chart

Hurricane Sandy has claimed casualties across the Eastern seaboard, with a death toll of at least 33 at last count. This, sadly, is part of a broader trend of increasing weather-related fatalities since the 1980s. While traditional weather-related dangers, such as lightning, have decreased in salience, heat waves and hurricanes are inflicting heavy casualties.

I tallied up results from the National Weather Service’s fatality data to see how deaths caused by weather-related events have changed over recent decades:

  

After Sandy's New York Deluge, a Flood of Rats?

Subway survivors: Rats will have outmaneuvered Sandy's underground floods.

Water rushes into a tunnel as Hurricane Sandy hits New York City. 

Hurricane Sandy's storm surge pushes seawater into New York City's Carey Tunnel on Monday.

New York City's rats have arrived. In the wake of superstorm Sandy, residents of the city are soon likely to see them by the thousands, since the rodents have been driven from flooded subway tunnels.

When weather is drier, the rats seem to love living under the soil, and can dig deeper than water can seep. They could even have been safe in their burrows as the storm swept the city Monday. But many likely were out on the hunt for food.

Forgive to Live: New Research Shows Forgiveness Is Good for the Heart

 

For thousands of years the world's religions have been preaching—if not always practicing—forgiveness. Now the medical community is finding that there are more benefits to letting things go than just better relationships and peace of mind. As the results of long-term studies on the physiological impacts of forgiveness trickle in, the evidence is stacking up behind a single idea: Truly forgiving those who have wronged us is good for our health in myriad waysit lowers blood pressure, improves sleep, and increases life span.

The End of Laughing at Marijuana Reformers

Election 2012, the Marijuana Majority project, and the rapidly changing politics of drug prohibition. 

marijuana full.jpg

Voters in Colorado, Oregon, and Washington will decide on election day whether to legalize marijuana in their states. All three initiatives have a chance of passing, and two are ahead in polls. In Massachusetts and Arkansas, voters may legalize medical marijuana. And last year, a Gallup poll found that a majority of American voters supported legalizing marijuana for the first time.

The political taboo against marijuana has been fading for awhile. When Bill Clinton admitted he'd smoked weed as a college student, he felt the need to add that he hadn't inhaled, and observers still wondered if it would cost him votes. Barack Obama admitted that he did inhale as a teenager. Yet his personal history with narcotics hasn't stopped him from presiding over a draconian War on Drugs and responding to several questions about drug reform with jokes.

Does George Lucas know something about 2012 that we don't?



George Lucas' empire is estimated at approximately $300 bn. Lucas sold to Disney for $4.05 bn. Does George Lucas know something about 2012 that we don't?

By now many of you know that George Lucas sold his empire to Disney for $4.05 bn.  Lucas' empire is estimated to be worth approximately $300 bn.  So, why would he sell so low? The last installment of Star Wars grossed over $850 mm alone. 

As the title of this thread says: Are Disney and George Lucas Hiding Something?

http://nymag.com/daily/intel/2012/10/are-disney-and-george-lucas-hiding-something.html


http://collider.com/wp-content/uploads/seth-rogen-george-lucas-slice-01.jpg

But get back to reality for a moment.  Not too long ago, I remember very clearly an interview with Seth Rogen (the actor) where he says he sat down at the same table with George Lucas and Steven Spielberg and Lucas was very serious and told him the world would end in 2012. 

Now he sells his empire? Disney announces it the same week as Hurricane Sandy hit the east coast? 

From Seth Rogen:

[i]    “He’s going on about the tectonic plates and all the time Spielberg is, like, rolling his eyes, like, ’My nerdy friend won’t shut up, I’m sorry…’

    “I first thought he (Lucas) was joking… and then I totally realized he was serious and then I started thinking, ’If you’re George Lucas and you actually think the world is gonna end in a year, there’s no way you haven’t built a spaceship for yourself… So I asked him… ’Can I have a seat on it?’

    “He claimed he didn’t have a spaceship, but there’s no doubt there’s a Millennium Falcon in a garage somewhere with a pilot just waiting to go… It’s gonna be him and Steven Spielberg and I’ll be blown up like the rest of us.”[/i]

http://collider.com/george-lucas-2012/71273/

One thing is casual conversation but another is to act on that conversation and sell your empire for a fraction of what it's worth. Why now (2012)? And why so low ($4.05 bn)?

Why would they announce it in the middle of an impenetrable news cycle surrounding a major natural disaster, and when U.S. stock markets are closed?  It really makes you wonder.

The Most Surreal Images Of Hurricane Sandy

Last night, Hurricane Sandy -- the largest Atlantic tropical system on record -- made landfall just south of Atlantic City, New Jersey, bringing winds up to 90 mph (150 kph), and pushing a massive storm surge onto beaches and shorelines. At least 12 deaths have been reported in the United States. These fatalities, when added to the previous toll in the Caribbean, leave Sandy responsible for more taking more than 80 lives to date. Millions across the Eastern Seaboard are now without power, and even more are struggling with rising floodwater. Sandy continues northward, now downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone, and those affected are now assessing the damage. Collected here are images of Sandy's aftermath, many from New York City, which suffered widespread blackouts and a record-setting high tide early this morning. See also yesterday's entry: Hurricane Sandy in Photos. [54 photos].

 

Stress and Depression May Halt Contraception Use

 

SAN FRANCISCO – Depression and stress can cause lapses in proper use of contraception, a new study suggests.

In the study, women with moderate to severe depression and stress symptoms were less likely to use contraception consistently — that is, use it each time they had sex — compared to women with mild or no symptoms. Women with depression or stress were also more likely to say they did not use contraception at all in the past week compared to women with less severe symptoms.

The findings, presented here yesterday (Oct. 29) at the annual meeting of the America Public Health Association, are concerning because, although preventing unplanned pregnancies is important for all women, it may be especially important for women with mental health issues, said study researcher Kelli Stidham Hall.

Dinosaurs Looking for Love Grew Alluring Feathers

 

An artist's reconstruction of feathered ornithomimid dinosaurs found in Alberta, Canada.

 Dinosaurs may have wooed potential mates with flashy feathers, peacock style. Researchers have discovered lengthy wisps on a sexually mature adult, but absent in the toddler specimen of the same dinosaur species.

These findings shed light on the origin of wings and feathered flight, scientists added.

Birds are the last living lineage of dinosaurs. Their predatory dinosaur ancestors and relatives apparently were covered in feathers as well. These downy coats probably helped to keep them warm at first.

NASA is planning to announce a discovery from its Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope on Thursday (Nov. 1) that will shed light on the early universe, officials said.

The announcement will "discuss new measurements using gamma rays to investigate ancient starlight," NASA officials said in a statement today (Oct. 29). The findings, which will be published in the Nov. issue of the journal Science, will be revealed during a teleconference Thursday at 2 p.m. EDT (1800 GMT).

Moon's Mysterious 'Ocean of Storms' Explained

The largest dark spot on the moon, known as the Ocean of Storms, may be a scar from a giant cosmic impact that created a magma sea more than a thousand miles wide and several hundred miles deep, researchers say.

These findings could help explain why the moon's near and far sides are so very different from one another, investigators added.

Scientists analyzed Oceanus Procellarum, or the Ocean of Storms, a dark spot on the near side of the moon more than 1,800 miles (3,000 kilometers) wide.

Can You Stop a Hurricane by Nuking It?

 

A view of Hurricane Sandy from GOES East satellite on Sunday, Oct. 27.

 To save lives and reduce costs, there would be tremendous advantage if science had a way to stop a devastating hurricane like Sandy. And scientists have thought of it before.

One idea that rears its head almost every hurricane season recently is the notion of bombing a hurricane into submission. The theory goes that the energy released by a nuclear bomb detonated just above and ahead of the eye of a storm would heat the cooler air there, disrupting the storm's convection current.

Italy and Switzerland Ban Novartis Flu Vaccines

Amid political controversy, the Italian government took the highroad last week by suspending sales of flu vaccines when their quality and safety were called into question.

Novartis AG (NOVN) told Italian and Swiss authorities that their products were safe, although the shots did contain particle buildup. Citing Novartis’ failure to provide adequate information for the safe sale of the shots, however, the Italian Health Ministry has banned the 488,000 doses in question.

How Hurricanes Work

A visualized look inside a storm. How they start, and the ways we measure how bad they get. 

 
With Hurricane Sandy hurtling toward the East Coast today, here's a handy infographic giving you the basics (and a little more) of how a storm gets going, and how to measure its scale. If you're wondering what makes Sandy a Category 1 storm, here's your answer: Winds between 120 and 150 kilometers per hour, according to the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale. 

Addicted to Food? The New Research Suggests It’s Possible.

Science is now proving what we’ve long suspected: we’re hard-wired to want the foods that are worst for us. 

Like most recovering addicts, Kay Sheppard has a testimony. Hers is this: the Florida mother of two spent years making trips to the store to buy cookies and chips for her family, eating almost every bag and box in the car on the way home. Then came the year she bought her dad chocolates for Christmas. She stuffed the candy in her dresser drawer and later finished off the entire thing—repeating this cycle five times with five boxes of candy. One day, she spied herself eating in the mirror and was horrified. “That was the first time in my 30-some years that I ever thought what I was doing was abnormal, because I had done the same thing year after year after year,” she says.

Rat Invasion? Will Subway Rodents Move Into Flooded NYC Neighborhoods?

With Sandy flooding the New York City subway system, a natural question to ask is “Where will the rats go?”  The New York City subway system is notorious for its growing rat population.  In fact, last year TWU Local 100 ran a YouTube video noting that for every rat subway riders saw, there were 8-10 more in hidden areas throughout the subway system.


Five Supervillain Weapons Science Has Already Invented

One of the problems of writing comics is that technology inevitably marches onward. What seems incredible and bizarre now is stuff you can get at Target in a few years.

 And, in fact, a lot of supposedly advanced technology? Yeah. It's already been built. In fact some of it you can build, right now, in your garage, or just buy it.

 Here are five supervillain toys scientific advancement have not only made it possible to own, but slap together in your garage.


Heat Wave's Flame Pistol:



In the comics, Heat Wave has a handheld flamethrower and, uh, that's pretty much it. OK, so he has a flame-proof costume and a fire extinguisher hidden in his sleeve, but his main weapon is just a little flamethrower.

7 Ways the Mind and Body Change With Age

Lots of changes.
 
The poster child of aging seems to be a wrinkly-faced, forgetful, grumpy old man. But science is painting another, more in-depth picture of aging Americans. The elderly tend to become more happy, liberal and in many cases remain pretty darn sharp. Here are 7 ways we change as we get older.


Lean liberal.
 
As wrinkles set in, so do a person's rigid beliefs, many people have long assumed. Not true, according to a survey of more than 46,000 Americans between 1972 and 2004. While the study didn't follow individuals as they aged, the results represent snapshots of the changing attitudes of respondents in different age groups. Over time, adults' attitudes got more liberal regarding politics, economics, race, gender, religion and sexuality issues. While the results don't mean your grandma is sure to revert to hippie-dom, on average older adults will head in that direction.
 
 
 

Lifelong Exercise Keeps Octogenarians Super Fit

 

Octogenarians who kept active throughout life had the aerobic capacity of men decades younger.

Octogenarians who spend a lifetime doing endurance exercise have the aerobic capacity of 40-year-olds.

For their age, these ultra-athletes have the highest aerobic capacity ever measured, suggesting that lifetime endurance training may ward off age-related declines in fitness.

The findings also strike a more hopeful note than past work, which found that starting an exercise regimen in old age didn’t do much to boost aerobic capacity.

Afraid of Hurricane Sandy? Tips to Stay Calm for You and Fido

 

At noon Eastern Daylight Time (16:00 Universal Time) on October 28, 2012, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite acquired this image of Hurricane Sandy off the southeastern United States.  

Howling winds, falling trees, flooding streets and power outages: Hurricane Sandy is expected to cause an extraordinary amount of damage. And when you are trapped inside with little to do, it can be hard to keep your cool.

Here are some tips for keeping calm during the storm.

Nine ways to make your cell phone last the whole storm even if the power goes out

 

Hurricane Sandy has been dumping rain on the US east coast for at least twelve hours, but high winds and days of rain are yet to come, so utilities are warning that tens of millions of people could be without power for days. Fortunately, cell phone access is often available even when the power goes out–here’s an amazing example from 2011′s epic floods in Australia.

Here’s an update of a post I wrote last year for Hurricane Irene on how to make sure you can stay connected through the one device that can summon emergency services and let you know when it’s safe to come out, even days after you’ve lost power.

1. Fully charge your laptop, and save that charge for your phone.

Hurricane Sandy: Live Updates

Hurricane Sandy, still hours away from making landfall in New Jersey, was already causing floods and destruction across the Mid-Atlantic region on Monday. Even as thousands fled the storm, officials urged those who stubbornly remained in its path to get out of the way and tried to prepare for a devastating storm surge expected at high tide Monday night. Transit shutdowns and school closings were expected to last at least into Tuesday.

A replica of the H.M.S. Bounty, a tall ship built for the 1962 movie “Mutiny on the Bounty” starring Marlon Brando and used in the recent “Pirates of the Caribbean” series, sank Monday off the North Carolina coast. Two crew members remained missing after the ship was battered by 18-foot-high seas and thrashed by 40-mile-an hour winds from Hurricane Sandy, the United States Coast Guard reported.

Clif High on VERITAS | Looking Over the Clif: The Return of Clif High


S y n o p s i s
 After a year of absence, Clif High returns to discuss his newest report. Among the topics discussed are:


TPTB Entity and the Elections – The election confusion will be concurrent with silver and gold price rises, and home price collapse.
US Markets Dataset – There is a constant electronic false flag threat on the financial markets. The false flag will be blamed on Iran. The election seems to be a TPTB deadline; or maybe 11-11-12 is a deadline, for starting something big. All government economic numbers are fraudulent.
The Manipulated Market of Diamonds – SELL DIAMONDS NOW! RIGHT NOW! I mean really, SELL ALL DIAMONDS NOW. The Russians found an ancient meteor strike with thousands of years worth of diamonds. At least 5-more mega-diamond-deposits will soon be found in North America.
Metals Markets – People are becoming more emotionally attached to gold. TPTB are trying to steer gold emotions to gold shows and gold related activities (that do not involve buying gold.)
Russia / Putin - Putin is aware of the ET’s on earth and the breakaway civilization. Putin practices judo, and judo is just like Kung Fu (or whatever), and Putin is really cool because he is an old guy that practices judo. And Russia is waiting for TPTB/USA/ empire to topple without poking at the rotting body too much.
TPTB & Minions – Food producers will become local authorities. Some people will start stealing government property. There will be a lot of government looting from within and from outside government. There will be some military mutinies and disappearances.
Global Coastal Event – Local conditions will vary. People will flee inland. Rain patterns will change. Government will dissolve by May or June of 2013. The government is still around, but few people will obey government anymore.
Free Energy Talk – We are not likely to have a nice little electrical device coming on the market. It is looking like wood is the new free energy. Junk car alternators are also a promising way to produce electricity. Apparently, Clif wants to use a wood-burning rocket-stove steam engine to power junk car alternators. This is the new free energy, it will spread by sharing the knowledge.
ET's on Earth – The breakaway civilization works with the ET’s . Aliens like crystals, but it is unclear what type of crystals they prefer. There will be a false flag ET fizzle. There may be a disclosure event from the mainstream media in the final days of mainstream media.
Temporal Markers Met – The pedophile ring disclosures are the major hit so far.
Data Gap - Possible Carrington Event (Solar Storm) - This will most likely be the trigger event for cascading failures including economic disasters and nuclear disasters.
Time Travelers – Time travelers may be tampering with our past.
Crystal Amalgam / Alloy Crystal – A new mineral crystal substance will be discovered in Canada, and it will be useful and valuable.
