Study: Earth's magnetic field is changing
Observing fluid motions in core could help scientists predict future changes.
Something beneath the surface is changing Earth's protective magnetic field, which may leave satellites and other space assets vulnerable to high-energy radiation.The gradual weakening of the overall magnetic field can take hundreds and even thousands of years. But smaller, more rapid fluctuations within months may leave satellites unprotected and catch scientists off guard, new research finds.
- The population has declined over recent years, mainly due to farming chemicals in the intensification of agriculture.
- Cats also pose a severe threat to urban populations of Common Pipistrelle.
- The Pipistrelle emits a frequency of between 45-76 kHz, maintaining a medium of 47 kHz with each call lasting maybe 5.6ms.
What has a bat to do with a change in the earths magnetic field?
Bats, birds, bees, and butterflies have a tiny grain of metal/crystal in their brain that is sensitive to the earths magnetic field. This, along with their other senses. is used for navigation.
Worker mounts traffic cam 8/19/08
The city was sold a bunch of, "revenue generating", cameras to help people navigate our road system. The attraction here is, of course, the truck loads of $'s that will come pouring into city coffers from traffic tickets. @ $24,000.00 for each camera, I think it will be a very long time before the city see's a profit. The salesman and the company he represents, are doing quite well.
Not so attractive...
I have been observing how effective Karl Roves' disinformation and propaganda machine has been. There are people who now believe that the war in Iraq is the fault of the democrats! Bush was just doing what congress told him to do when he invaded Iraq! He is not to blame for the thousands of Americans killed in the war! Liberals are against America!
These people use the word, "liberal", like it's evil.
I'm guessing they don't have a dictionary.
No matter how you read it, "liberal", means; "open minded".
Iran launches satellite
It didn't make it
A Chevron oil management team plots their next exploration at Chevron's Kern River Field in Bakersfield on one of several giant screens used at the site.
California was one of America's first oil patches.
Simply drilling a well and attaching a pump to it will recover just a fraction of the oil sitting in a field, perhaps 20 to 30 percent.
This means that with new extraction methods, we still have plenty of oil for California's future needs.
Unfortunately, the price at the pump is set by the world market, so we wont see relief there, even though it is California oil!

ScienceDaily (Aug. 19, 2008) — A "minor planet" with the prosaic name 2006 SQ372 is just over two billion miles from Earth, a bit closer than the planet Neptune. But this lump of ice and rock is beginning the return leg of a 22,500-year journey.
If the Bush administration lied about Saddam Hussein and weapons of mass destruction, what measure of credibility should we give to any of their promulgations?
In the late 1950's, my performing song list was made up of originals, Elvis, Ray Charles, and the Kingston Trio. One of my favorite Kingston trio songs is The Merry Minuet. It's as true today as it was back then. Click on it and give it a listen. It's the perfect finale for tonight's blog post.
