Please enter your email address here Please enter your comment! I remember when the gas was around four dollars a gallon, and the big V8s were killing us. Our truck, at that time, had a double sized tank on it, and we never kept it nowhere near full, in fact, I used to gripe at my husband for constantly running around on fumes, and telling him okay, if we run out of gas, ” I ain’t walking”…. LOL I am so happy to see the gas keeps coming down. The lowest I have seen around this area so far is $ 1.73 per gallon. I see where the Trump administration is giving billions to the Arabs, basically bailing them out, because their cash cow, the oil, is falling out, and those rich Arabs don’t know what to do…..oh well, glad the prices are dropping. I guess the only part of this article I don’t understand is why gas stock is up 10 percent?

The nights and days seem so long…..it drives me crazy. All I can lay in bed and think about is, of all the places I want to go, and things I want to do, an oversized bucket list, and yet, there is nowhere to go. I really don’t anticipate things ever being back to the so-called “normal” ever again, in this country. Some of the beaches are open again, but I never dreamed that you couldn’t sit on the beach, or lie down to sun bathe. It is so crazy! From what I am reading, when the restrictions are lifted, many of the chain grocery stores may opt to keep people from entering the building to shop! They may implement curb-side pickup, or home delivery only, to keep their store employees safe. I understand their concern, but I just can’t picture that happening! It is so depressing and crazy, and if that is the way it is going to be, then we have more freedom to go to the grocery stores right now, on lock down! And also, another crazy is the guy who is making masks out of python skins from the snakes caught in the Florida Everglades…..SMH!

Newspaper owner shot dead

first_img RSF_en News BelarusEurope – Central Asia Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown BelarusEurope – Central Asia Organisation News to go further May 29, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Newspaper owner shot deadcenter_img “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says Reporters Without Borders called today on Russia’s chief state prosecutor, Vladimir Ustinov, to thoroughly investigate the murder of Alexander Plotnikov, co-owner of the regional daily paper in Tumen (Siberia), Gostini dvor, who was shot dead on 20 May.”Because so many journalists have been killed in Russia recently as a result of their work, we ask you to see that a serious and timely enquiry is made into whether his death was linked to articles he published, even though at first glance it may seem it was due to a financial dispute among the paper’s owners,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to Ustinov.Investigators think the murder was done by hired killers. Shortly beforehand, the other owners had switched all the paper’s shares into their own bank accounts and started proceedings to wind up the paper. Plotnikov had won a court case against them and was trying, with the help of bailiffs, to recuperate his shares. The other owners had already refused to allow him to enter their offices and on 20 May, the day he was killed with a Makarov pistol, he was going to make another attempt to do so.

The myth of metabolic cold adaptation: oxygen consumption in stenothermal Antarctic bivalves

first_imgAntarctic marine ectotherms are often described as only being capable of living in a restricted temperature range, i.e. they are stenothermal. However, few data exist demonstrating that for a given group this is the case. The Antarctic bivalve molluscs Laternula elliptica and Limopsis marionensis are similar to other Antarctic invertebrates and can only exist within a temperature window of 6–12°C. This is two to six times smaller than the range for temperate and tropical bivalves, thus demonstrating their stenothermal nature. The possibility of elevated metabolic rates of cold-water ectotherms has been a topic of debate over many years. Recently, the suggestion that metabolic rates must be elevated at low temperatures to overcome constraints has been supported by findings that mitochondrial contents of muscles in ectotherms are higher at low temperatures. Data, presented here for standard or routine metabolic rates of 41 species of bivalve mollusc from polar, temperate and tropical sites, indicate that oxygen consumption is not elevated at low temperatures. Indeed, analysis of Q10 coefficients between 0 and 25°C suggests that metabolic rates of polar species may be lower than would be expected by comparison with temperate bivalveslast_img read more

Terrain-aided navigation for long-range AUVs indynamic under-mapped environments

first_imgDeploying long‐range autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) mid‐water column in the deep ocean is one of the most challenging applications for these submersibles. Without external support and speed over the ground measurements, dead‐reckoning (DR) navigation inevitably experiences an error proportional to the mission range and the speed of the water currents. In response to this problem, a computationally feasible and low‐power terrain‐aided navigation (TAN) system is developed. A Rao‐Blackwellized Particle Filter robust to estimation divergence is designed to estimate the vehicle’s position and the speed of water currents. To evaluate performance, field data from multiday AUV deployments in the Southern Ocean are used. These form a unique test case for assessing the TAN performance under extremely challenging conditions. Despite the use of a small number of low‐power sensors and a Doppler velocity log to enable TAN, the algorithm limits the localisation error to within a few hundreds of metres, as opposed to a DR error of 40 km, given a 50 m resolution bathymetric map. To evaluate further the effectiveness of the system under a varying map quality, grids of 100, 200, and 400 m resolution are generated by subsampling the original 50 m resolution map. Despite the high complexity of the navigation problem, the filter exhibits robust and relatively accurate behaviour. Given the current aim of the oceanographic community to develop maps of similar resolution, the results of this study suggest that TAN can enable AUV operations of the order of months using global bathymetric models.last_img read more
