Doesn't matter what #netanyahu  says, or not says. His policies are a true reflection of his intent.

Blue Hole

We've all heard about black holes, but here's a blue hole. 

It's the Great Blue Hole, off the coast of Belize in Central America. It's over 300 meters across and 120 meters deep.  It's in the Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System, which is considered a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

What made this hole?

Sinkholes form when underground limestone slowly gets dissolved and washed away by slightly acidic rainwater, forming caves, and then the surface of the ground collapses.  The Great Blue Hole formed during two separate ice ages.  During an ice age, the sea level is much lower!  So, this sinkhole didn't form under the ocean.  It formed on land.

The Great Blue Hole began to form 150,000 years ago, during the second to last ice age: the Wolstonian glaciation.   That ice age ended around 130,000 years ago at the start of the Eemian interglacial.  The sea rose, and the Great Blue Hole was flooded.

The most recent ice age, the Wisconsin glaciation, started about 110,000 years ago.  The sea level dropped.  The Great Blue Hole continued to get bigger, in several separate stages.

And then the most recent ice age ended.  Sea levels rose by about 120 meters!  This was mostly finished about 10,000 years ago. 

There are also many sinkholes on land in Belize and the Yucatán Peninsula, where they are known as cenotes.  Often they're connected to underwater cave systems... but apparently not to the Great Blue Hole.

Uh oh, the #FBI  doesn't buy #fifa 's claims of  #innocence , revs up investigation on #curruption  . This is going to be good!
U.S. investigators are stepping up the pace of a corruption investigation into senior leaders of FIFA, even as the world soccer body cleared itself.

#Target  to #close  all its #stores  in #Canada  
After less than two years of trying to win over Canadian consumers with its bold red and white bulls-eye logo and promise of affordable style, Target Corp. is walking away from its Canadian operations, saying it can’t make a profit north of the border. Is Canada’s vast geographic landscape and changing consumer tastes to blame for Target’s failure? “Target blew it,” says Doug Stephens, founder of the Retail Prophet consultancy. He said Target als...

I think they should change the ‘and’ to ‘or’, or that yellow alarm bar is never going to get pushed.

Worried your 903bhp McLaren P1 isn't unique enough? Why not dip it in 24-carat gold?

Worried your 903bhp hypercar looks just too common? Why not slather it in 24-carat gold?
