Looks like it survived, but just, its close swing around the sun.
Spritzer is best bet for IR wavelengths, detected CO2 recently in IR
How does this event look in the Near Infrared and Infrared spectrums? VATT in Arizona has a LUCIFER telescope with can see events in that frequency range. Are you pinging them for data as well
@barryevans: Stop patronizing. The Hindu, formerly a reputable paper with high ideals has been nobbled by western and Israeli interest for quite a while now. You probably assume that as it is an Indian paper and the commentators are also Indians that one should accept it as truth bound.
Why don't you do proper research instead of just googling - an indolent act indeed.
S.N. Bose was not the only non European who has been air'brushed by the current power whose mendacity and avariciousness is pushing the human race to premature extinction.
You'll find countless numbers of non-Europeans comprising Africans, "American" Africans, Chinese, Indians, Pakistanis etc who are also not duly recognized.
Check "The faces of Science: African Americans in the Sciences" for the numerous numbers of contributors in all the fields of academy, sciences and inventions for instance.
Check the likes of the genuinely honorable Jagdish Chandra Bose who was not interested in patenting his innovations in the many fields of sciences including the wireless enabling Marconi to adapt it as his own idea.
Check Ramanujan's analytical theory on numbers.
Check Chandrasekhar's contributions in astrophysics.
These are among the countless numbers on whose shoulders the greedy patent claimers on their egotistical path to claim fame and wealth.
This is not to say that there are no great thinkers, scholars, scientists and inventors from the West. East or West, everything, however great or small is sooner or later hijacked by the greedy force i have already described. The greedy bastards, be they Monsanto, Bill Gates, et al., are out claiming patent rights on nature's creation itself and also bottling water. What on earth for!
You, Barry, with a Welsh name like Evans should look at what happened to your people; their past society, culture and independence: the genocidal acts meted out against them as was the Scots and Irish by the perfidious force that enslaved it's own first.
What happened then continues on more rabidly now than ever.
Those who were surfs have now formed covenants with the egregious to be at their service. The Zionist owned corporations and the empire called the "USA", so brave are they at terrorizing and committing genocides on the weakest of people in order to steal their mineral wealth across the world.
Hey, I started reading this article and then I kinda got lost. I was gonna suggest a book that I just finished the other night (a long struggle) "The Quantum Brain". At first I thought it somehow correlated but now I'm not sure. I thought the book would be about how the human brain is similar to the proposed quantum computers. It was a bit too much for me (huge scientific verbage that lost me at times), but also deals with human conscience. Has anyone else read it. I sell on ebay and would send this to any Humboldt reader for $5 includiding S&H. Anyone interested?
Hi Raja, thanks for your note.
The Higgs particle is a boson, i.e. (and simplifying) a force-carrying elementary particle. Bosons were named after the India physicist Satyendra Nath Bose (1894-1974) by Paul Dirac in honor of Bose’s work on characterizing elementary particles (the Bose-Einstein statistics). Bose had nothing to do with the discovery of bosons, and certainly not with the Higgs particle.

S.N. Bose. What happened to him in all your very clever explanations. Even the Nazis and Stalin couldn't have matched your mendacity in erasing aspects in the history of the so-called "god Particle" Shame on you
Best explanation of the God Particle is at http://GodParticleBible.com
When I read Karen May's article, I was struck by the contrast between the two Polar expeditions. Scott had cut things so fine that his very life depended on flawless execution of months-old orders under unpredictable circumstances (e.g. Simpson's departure, Evans's scurvy, Meares's late return). Amundsen, on the other hand, had such a generous safety margin that he could and did make the entire trip on his own, with little opportunity for Murphy's Law to intervene.
Thanks Barry, trees are the answer.
Fred, what if a dune was de-stabilized and set to eat your forested commons
at six feet a year.
Wouldn't it be in the State's interest to plant and stabilize that dune before it
consumes more forest (rare wildlife habitat) and ventures into a slough- then on to
ag-land, USDA #1 soils?
I hope so, for the locals seem to be quite pleased turning dune forests into desert.
Planning for habitats that will not be available in the future due to relative sea-level rise,
in essence, screwing nature one grant at a time.
Salt-water intrusion will be the next surprise, you'll see trees die by the thousands.
Well, I guess that clears the matter up.
Totally, Fred. The government has ZERO business trying to address public safety, air pollution, global warming, tourism, etc. Just let the free market work its magic! It seems to be doing splendidly so far.
Eureka has more than enough trees. If people want to plant trees, fine, but government shouldn't be involved in encouraging them.
Bombshell? What sort of bombshell? The Thomas Insel move was biological psychiatrist to biological psychiatrist, the American Psychiatric Association is dominated by biological psychiatrists, and it deflected the argument away from critiques based on more fundamental differences in thought and opinion. Does this criticism mean that any of the psychiatrists can put a dent in the selling power of the DSM-5? I wish. As long as DSM classification numbers are used to bill insurance companies, I think not. Psychologists have weakly offered their own critique, colluding with the likes of DSM-IV architect Allen Frances, but all in all, when no controversy is being stirred up, they are aiding and abetting the very efforts they are criticizing. Controversy aside, the book goes out, and it continues to sell like hotcakes, and its unscientific basis just gets swept under the rug. This same unscientific basis means that people are going to continue to be harmed by this document on a mass scale, and that is more than just sad, it is an abomination.
Thanks for responding, but you kinda lost me at "radical" and "war."
Please do read: http://www.azgfd.gov/w_c/california_condor…
Excerpt: "Although there may be other sources of lead, a scientific study funded by the Arizona Game and Fish Department has identified lead from spent ammunition as the major source of lead in condors."
"Lead toxicity has been identified as the leading cause of death in condors in the Arizona reintroduction program. At least fifteen condors have died of lead poisoning since 2000."
Radical animal rights groups like the Humane Society of the US, Audubon California, Center for Biological Diversity, and Action For Animals are conducting a war aimed at the banning of sport hunting in California. One way they are trying to accomplish this is by sponsoring AB711, which calls for a state-wide ban on most kinds of hunting ammunition available to the public. The same groups may try to expand the ban to your state. These groups claim that scavenging animals, such as the California condor, ingest and are poisoned by pieces of metallic lead bullets present in gut piles of harvested game left in the field by hunters. They rely on certain scientific papers that allegedly support these claims, and often use the poisoning of the California condor to justify their anti-lead ammunition agenda.
But there are serious scientific questions about the validity of their claims. The failure of the hastily-enacted California lead ammunition ban legislation of 2007 (AB821) suggests that these groups are wrong. AB821 banned the use of lead ammunition in the “condor zone” region of California. It was strong-armed through the legislature, bypassing the usual path involving the more scientifically inclined California Fish & Game Commission, based on the promise that the ban would lower the condors’ elevated blood-lead levels, and solve the lead poisoning problem. But AB821 has not resulted in lower blood-lead levels or otherwise reduced lead poisoning in condors. Despite the California Department of Fish & Wildlife’s acknowledgment that 99% of hunters are complying with the lead ban in the “condor zone” since the law took effect, condors’ blood-lead levels, poisoning and mortality have increased since 2007!
There are obviously other sources of lead in the environment. These alternative sources are likely an industrial lead compound (e.g leaded gasoline, paint or pesticides), which is far more soluble and bioavailable to condors. We have identified some of those potential alternative sources, and we encourage you to join the hunt for the truth with us and learn the real facts!

In case you’re lying awake worrying about getting from A to B (2nd para): at constant velocity, each step takes half the length of time of the previous step, giving you an infinite series for the time of the entire trip 1 + 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8… which has a finite sum (2)
Barry you are a delight as always. The Heart Sutra comes to mind: "Form is exactly emptiness and emptiness exactly form." If we examine from the perspective of our somethingness, the question of something vs. nothing seems to be a unreconcilable duality. Seeing this in another way might explain the iconic image of the Buddha laughing his ass off.

Good work at the Headwaters on the South Fork of the Elk River. That's what a river should look like.
Unfortunately, the North Fork of the Elk is still crippled by the massive sediment load largely attributable to Maxxam's clear-cutting, and logging continues in its watershed. Too bad only one fork of the Elk could be saved.
Zheng voyages are highly doubtful, chinese are very clever and very good in making up stuffs in supporting their claims like Tibet, Xinjiang, Inner Mongolia, Paracel islands, Senkaku islands. They the chinese will claim Australia, and Russian Siberia are belong to them too.
