Australian researchers have now discovered that freshwater reserves under the ocean are much larger than previously thought and could satisfy the water needs of everyone for decades. According to the United Nations, people have used much more water in the last century, namely due to irrigated agriculture and meat production. They estimate by 2030, almost half of people will be hardpressed to have enough water. But Australian researchers have now discovered that freshwater reserves under the ocean are much larger than previously thought and could satisfy the water needs of everyone for decades. Lead author Vincent Post said, “The volume of this water resource is a hundred times greater than the amount we’ve extracted from the Earth’s sub-surface in the past century.” Found deep under continental shelf seabeds, this low-salinity water was formed in pockets during the Last Glacial Maximum when sea levels were lower. Throughout environmental changes over the years, their aquifers have been protected by clay and sediment layers. Good news is this water would be easier and less expensive to desalinate than seawater. Bad news is the water would still require a great deal of filtering. Also, it’s hard and expensive to extract; those drilling must be very careful not to contaminate the aquifers. Lastly, these freshwater reserves cannot be renewed by rainwater like our existing aquifers so they would have to be used wisely.
Using data collected by satellites, scientists have identified the coldest place on Earth and unsurprisingly, it is on the continent of Antarctica. Using data collected by satellites, scientists have identified the coldest place on Earth and unsurprisingly, it is on the continent of Antarctica.The preliminary reading from August of 2010 sets the record at negative 135 point 8 degrees Fahrenheit, or minus 93 point 2 degrees Celsius. This reading is based on the air temperature several feet above the surface of land near the middle of Antarctica. Researchers say that further analysis of data from other sensors might reveal a place nearby that is even colder, but only by the small margin of around a single degree.Ted Scambos from the US National Snow and Ice Data Center in Boulder, Colorado is quoted as saying: “The way I like to put it is that it's almost as cold below freezing as boiling water is above freezing. The new low is a good 50 degrees colder than temperatures in Alaska or Siberia, and about 30 degrees colder than the summit of Greenland.”The pockets of extremely cold air are caused by elevation and air movement patterns affected by temperature. Back in 2005, the hottest place ever recorded on Earth was in an Iranian desert of Iran, which reached just under 160 degrees Fahrenheit.

A male from Battipaglia, Italy was recently taken into police custody for allegedly threatening a barman for free food and drinks. While the so called threats were subtle, the man would commonly boast about being a ‘mafia boss’. Apparently the allure of being a mafia member is very much alive for some people. A 52 year old male from Battipaglia, Italy, was recently taken into police custody for allegedly threatening a barman for free food and drinks.While the so called threats were non violent, over the course of several days the man would brag he was a ‘mafia boss’.He told stories about being the mob leader for the Camorra clan. Reportedly, he was telling his illegal lifestyle tales to the bartender in an effort to scare him, as he was sitting at the bar enjoying a good amount of croissants and coffee.Eventually the bartender got tired of listening to him and wanted to see some cash. After the worker asked for the tab to be paid, the alleged mafia man left a container of gasoline outside the business as a response to the bill. Following that incident, the bartender contacted police and reported the man’s stories. In the end, he was arrested.
Researchers from the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis in the United States have found that micro plastic particles might be having a significant effect on the environment and the biodiversity of marine life. Researchers from the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis in the United States have found that micro plastic particles might be having a significant effect on the environment and the biodiversity of marine life. By studying the ingested plastic particles in lugworms, they found that pollutants and additive chemicals were transferred into the worm’s system (1,9,1) causing negative side effects like thermal stress and reducing the worm’s ability to consume sediment. Estimates say that 150 million tons of micro plastics disappear worldwide from the waste stream annually.According to Mark Browne, ecologist and co-author of the study: “We are losing a large volume of plastic and we know it is going into the environment and the assumption being made by policymakers is that this material is non-hazardous, it has got the same ranking as scraps of food.” (1,5,1) Lugworms reportedly make upmake up nearly 32 percent of the biomass of the shoreline. They contribute to the ecosystem by eating sediment and processing it as a way to stop the build up of silt in the water. What do you think about the toxic effect of micro plastics on the environment?
The German Brewers Union has put in a bid to have the country’s beer purity law added to UNESCO’s list of the world’s intangible cultural treasures. The German Brewers Union has put in a bid to have the country’s beer purity law added to UNESCO’s list of the world’s intangible cultural treasures. Reinheitsgebot, the official German name for the standards, has been in place for over 500 years and dictates that only yeast, malt, hops, and water be used in the brew. Established in Bavaria in 1516 and officially put in place countrywide in 1906, it is the world’s oldest food regulation to still be endorsed. Required documents for securing the UNESCO designation were all mailed prior to the late-November deadline, so now all they have to do is wait for an answer. That is expected to come in no more than two years. Applications from each of the 16 German states will be reviewed and the final 34 sent along to the German UNESCO commission for the final decision. The competition will be stiff and it is already known that among the other areas seeking special recognition is North Rhine-Westphalia. [pan from Bavaria, Germany to North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany]As that’s where Beethoven was born, they’re seeking an intangible cultural heritage designation for the composer.
