Industrial fisheries are starving seabirds all around the world

December 7, 2018
Industrial fisheries are starving seabirds like penguins and terns by competing for the same prey sources, new research from the French National Center for Scientific Research in Montpellier and the Sea Around Us initiative at the University of British Columbia has found.

“Since the 1970s and 80s, we’ve lost a quarter of all penguins and nearly half of the terns and frigatebirds,” said Grémillet.

Palomares explained that urgent action is needed because not only are seabirds starving to death as they engage in unfair competition for food with massive vessels, but they are also getting tangled in fishing gears and on the large amounts of plastic waste floating on the world’s oceans.
“On top of this, they are threatened by oil pollution, the introduction of non-native predators to their colonies, the destruction and changes to their habitats by human activity and environmental and ecological changes caused by climate change.
“If we don’t do anything, seabird populations are going to collapse,” the Sea Around Us researcher said.

An international team of scientists have detected ripples in space and time, known as gravitational waves, from the biggest known black-hole collision that formed a new black hole about 80 times larger than the Sun – and from another three black-hole mergers.

“These were from four different binary black hole systems smashing together and radiating strong gravitational waves out into space,” said Professor Scott…
.
Since the second observing run finished in August 2017, scientists have been upgrading the LIGO and Virgo gravitational-wave detectors to make them more sensitive.”This means during the upcoming third observing run, starting early next year, we will be able to detect events further out in space, meaning more detections and potentially gravitational waves from new and yet unknown sources in the Universe,” Professor Scott said.
.
The international research team has detected gravitational waves from 10 different black-hole mergers and one neutron star collision during the past three years.

Billy: Yes, that will probably be good. Then I would like to ask the following: Semjase once said that there are sometimes very powerful convulsions in the Universe that are released by black holes. What explanation lies behind this?
.
Quetzal: 36. It concerns space-time convulsions, which we also call space-time quakes. 37. These occur when two black holes collide and merge with one another.
.
Billy: You mean that when two black holes collide and merge with one another, then structural quakes will result in the levels of space and time or even structural convulsions, if I understand that correctly?
.
Quetzal: 38. That is correct.

E-Tron Virtual Mirrors by Audi

E-Tron Virtual Mirrors by Audi

A new way to look back
Despite U.S. regulators’ reluctance to approve digital side mirrors, this $75,000 Audi is plowing forward with the idea—overseas, at least. The system replaces conventional exterior mirrors with small cameras mounted on angled columns, resulting in a super-efficient 0.28 drag coefficient and making Audi’s electric the slipperiest SUV on the road. Inside the cabin, bright OLED screens tucked into the door sill show vivid images of the view behind you, and touch controls allow you to aim and zoom the “mirrors” for the optimal view. The cameras adapt to changing lighting conditions to ensure consistency and image legibility. It takes about 15 seconds to get used to the tech, then you never want to go back.

 

Look out, CAR FANS ICONS!

“According to the Bible, the ancient cities, thought to have been located on the Dead Sea, were wiped away by God for the sinful behaviour of their people. The preliminary findings of US scientists suggest that this region witnessed a major calamity almost 4 thousand years ago, which left it uninhabited for centuries.

Archaeologists from Trinity Southwest University, a Christian higher educational institution in Albuquerque, New Mexico, have claimed civilisation in the Dead Sea region was destroyed 3,700 years ago following a meteor explosion in the atmosphere.

The results suggest that cities and settlements in the Jordan Valley’s Middle Ghor region, where up to 65,000 people lived around that time, were obliterated with a powerful wave of heat, wind and tiny particles…”

What really happened:

Billy:
Aha. And since we’re already talking about down there: what was up with Sodom and Gomorrah; what actually happened there – how were these two cities destroyed?

Quetzal:
117. Several factors are to be mentioned: 118. On the one hand, a meteorite fell to the Earth and exploded high over the area of the two cities, which would now actually be designated as larger villages. 119. This led to devastating destructions of both cities, triggering a massive earthquake, by which the earth was torn open – like in Petra – and by underground volcanic activity, small and larger chunks of sulfur were flung high and across the country, which also naturally caused much disaster, and by this – as also by the exploding meteorite – many people were killed. 120. The remaining part of the total destruction was caused by the megalomaniac and crazy God of the Hebrews, an extraterrestrial who had his headquarters deep under the pyramid of Giza. 121. His punishment for the disobedience of the population of Sodom and Gomorrah against his commands was that he let two small atom bombs ignite over the two cities, which finally leveled everything to the ground, killing all humans and animals.

Oh My GOTT p.517

GOTT 28:147-148

147) Through the energy and power of the consciousness and the connection with the pineal gland you are, in the midst of your earthly-material existence, consciously or unconsciously as the case may be, in sensibility with the energy and power of your spirit-form which, however, is only possible for you human beings, whereas the worlds of the animals and other creatures and everything that crawls and flies is excluded therefrom; to enable you to consciously perceive the connection with the creational energy of your spirit-form it requires that you, as truth-human beings, follow the creational laws and recommendations and in the knowledge of the truth use all your attentiveness and heedfulness on this; and truly only you Wesen of the human kind are capable thereto.

148)  You alone as Wesen of the human kind are able to make a connection in a conscious wise between the fine-fluidal, the high-fine-fluidal and the material-coarse-substantial, wherethrough you are able to realise the pure life of the fine-fluidal and spiritual and make a harmonious interaction between this and your deep coarse-substantial-material.

Only idiots debate climate change and global warming

November 15, 2018

We tested 2000 nuclear bombs. We cut the rainforests down. We hunted the whales. We built the roads and skyscrapers. We spray the glyphosate and atrazine. We dump the plastic. We built the crumbling nuclear power plants that leak. We overbred to more than 8.8 billion people. We over fish. We built the dams. We hunt endangered animals for sport and ivory. We burn gas and oil. We frack. We mine for gold. We burn the coal. We overfarm and use fertilizer that runs off into the rivers and causes toxic algae blooms. It doesn’t matter whether or not it gets hot or cold. We are destroying the only environment we have with too many people.

Swiss nerds to launch exoplanet measuring CHEOPS space telescope next year

November 14, 2018

Swiss nerds are awesome.  They were the ones to discover the first exoplanet in 1995.  In 2019, CHEOPS will be launched in order to measure the radii of exoplanets.  When radius and mass are known, the density of the planet can be calculated.  Here’s a boring video about the making of CHEOPS.  2019 will also reveal the early results of TESS to the public.

Rainforest destruction from gold mining hits all-time high in Peru

November 8, 2018

Small-scale gold mining has destroyed more than 170,000 acres of primary rainforest in the Peruvian Amazon in the past five years, according to a new analysis by scientists at Wake Forest University’s Center for Amazonian Scientific Innovation (CINCIA).

That’s an area larger than San Francisco and 30 percent more than previously reported.

“The scale of the deforestation is really shocking,” said Luis Fernandez, executive director of CINCIA and research associate professor in the department of biology.

The scientists at CINCIA, based in the Madre de Dios region of Peru, have developed a new data fusion method to identify areas destroyed by this small- or artisanal-scale mining. Combining existing CLASlite forest monitoring technology and Global Forest Change data sets on forest loss, this new deforestation detection tool is 20-25 percent more accurate than those used previously.

Both CLASlite and the Global Forest map use different kinds of information from light waves to show changes in the landscape. “Combining the two methods gives us really good information about the specific kind of deforestation we’re looking for,” said Miles Silman, associate director of science for CINCIA and director of Wake Forest’s Center for Energy, Environment, and Sustainability (CEES). Silman has researched biodiversity and ecology in the Western Amazon and Andes for more than 25 years.
