Dinosaur-killing asteroid impact cooled Earth’s climate more than previously thought | #Geology #GeologyPage

The Chicxulub asteroid impact that wiped out the dinosaurs likely released far more climate-altering sulfur gas into the atmosphere than originally thought, according to new research.

Rumbling

A shot from gusting evening walks when the high wind was forcing sea waves to strike hard on shore. I push my tripod harder into the sand to fight with that strong gust. Sun was behind me lighting up low clouds tips in front of me and was about say good for that day.

Tianjara at sunset

A couple of days ago i became a little disoriented at the top off the escarpment and found myself in the wrong place. I stopped to take stock and watch the shadows move. Near me, the silhouette of a face took form and darkened. Then, the sun's horizontal rays hit the edge behind a waterfall and set the rock wall on fire.
The lens flare here is partly due to the sun but has taken on color from water vapor (a secondary/inverse rainbow?). The silhouette rock appeared to move slowly as the sun's rays moved to the horizontal.

A handheld HDR, lightly toned for structure, desaturated slightly in the red/magenta range.

NFL looks for a way to side-step the anthem protest issue

Prior to 2009, you didn't see all the players at NFL games standing the sidelines during the national anthem for prime time games. Prior to that year, NFL players in such games stayed in the locker room, though on Sunday afternoon games the players were out on the sidelines. [1]

In 2009, the NFL set a new policy saying that, nope, players had to be out on the sidelines during the national anthem during prime time, and suggesting (but not mandating) that the players should stand during the anthem.

(There have been reports that the Defense Dept. paid the NFL to do this. The actual DoD actions, that have been documented, were payments to the NFL in 2012 for various patriotic displays at NFL games, itself a sketchy practice.)

The kneeling protests by NFL players during the anthem, protesting racism (esp. law enforcement) in America, have been highly controversial (which, indirectly, is kind of what you want protests to be). The president has been livid about it, fans (some at least) have been angry, the NFL owners have been unhappy about the brouhaha but haven't been willing to force the issue (perhaps because compelling people to act patriotic is, even if legal, also kind of sketchy).

Well, word is that the NFL owners may try to defuse the whole mess by simply going back to having the players stay in the locker room until after the national anthem. That will probably make all sorts of people unhappy, too, but its also an unhappiness that doesn't have a weekly set of visuals to go with it.

(Questioning the American compulsion to engage in a communal expression of patriotic fervor before sporting events apparently is not on the table. Why is there a big national anthem at football games and NASCAR races, but not before Formula 1 races or golf tournaments? What purpose of national interest or celebration of liberty does such a mandated display actually serve?)

The Earth’s Moon had a rough start in life. Formed from a chunk of the Earth that was lopped off during a planetary collision, it spent its early years covered by a roiling global ocean of molten magma before cooling and forming the serene surface we know today.

A research team led by The University of Texas at Austin Jackson School of Geosciences took to the lab to recreate the magmatic melt that once formed the lunar surface and uncovered new insights on how the modern moonscape came to be. Their study shows that the Moon’s crust initially formed from rock floating to the surface of the magma ocean and cooling. However, the team also found that one of the great mysteries of the lunar body’s formation – how it could develop a crust composed of just one mineral – cannot be explained by the initial crust formation and must have been the result of some secondary event.

“It’s fascinating to me that there could be a body as big as the Moon that was completely molten,” said Nick Dygert, an assistant professor at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville who led the research while a post doctoral researcher in the Jackson School’s Department of Geological Sciences. “That we can run these simple experiments, in these tiny little capsules here on Earth and make first order predictions about how such a large body would have evolved is one of the really exciting things about mineral physics.”

Dygert collaborated with Jackson School Associate Professor Jung-Fu Lin, Professor James Gardner and Ph.D. student Edward Marshall, as well as Yoshio Kono, a beamline scientist at the Geophysical Laboratory at the Carnegie Institution of Washington.

Large portions of the Moon’s crust are made up of 98 percent plagioclase—a type of mineral. According to prevailing theory, which the study calls into question, the purity is due to plagioclase floating to the surface of the magma ocean over hundreds of millions of years and solidifying into the Moon’s crust. This theory hinges on the magma ocean having a specific viscosity, a term related to the magma’s “gooiness,” that would allow plagioclase to separate from other dense minerals it crystallized with and rise to the top.

Some people have heard of them from Dr. Oz’s book, YOU Staying Young. I, on the other hand, happened upon Chia seeds at Costco of all places. Considered rare, #Chiaseeds are now available at your local big box store. I got a huge 2 pound bag for $6.79. They don’t have to be refrigerated and last several years. How good is that? #calories #healthyeating #lazycook #weight
