Cool Front Set to Bring Soggy Weekend Weather to South Florida

first_img“It’s a great opportunity to get some rain, but the problem is that sometimes it comes fast and furious and that could be the situation this weekend,” Kottlowski adds.The National Weather Service in Miami has set the “rainy season” from May 15 through Oct. 15.Mostly clear skies are expected through Saturday night, when the rain chances increase to 50 percent. The chance of rain increases to 80 percent on Sunday.South Florida’s rainy season typically produces about 70 percent of our region’s annual rainfall.Coastal Palm Beach County has received 4.8 inches less rain than normal since January. In the 16-county region from Orlando to the Keys overseen by the water management district, the average deficit is 3.4 inches.Although drought has lessened in the state during the past month, all of Palm Beach County is still considered “abnormally dry,” according to the U.S. Drought Monitor’s April 30 report. A new report is due to be released Thursday. Grab those umbrellas!South Florida could be in for a very rainy Mother’s Day weekend, with some parts of the region in for as much as eight inches of rain through Monday.The wet weather and accompanying wind is being partially triggered by a cold blast in the Northeast.The heaviest showers are expected to begin late Saturday into Sunday, as a cool front hangs over Central Florida, with a low pressure front underneath it.“It’s definitely going to be a washout,” says AccuWeather senior meteorologist Dan Kottlowski about Mother’s Day. “It’s going to be a widespread rain event, so you might as well quarantine yourself for the day.”Flooding is also possible in low-lying and poorly-drained areas.South Florida Water Management District meteorologists also are forecasting average rainfall of 2.5 inches through Monday, with locally heavy rains puddling six to eight inches where showers end up stalling.May 6 – Heavy rain and flooding potential may increase late this weekend into early next week.

More Examples of Exceptional Preservation in Fossil Reptiles

first_imgHow could structures this delicate survive the ravages of tens or hundreds of millions of years?Tired BloodA video posted by Reuters shows the “‘oldest in world’ fossilized blood vessels.” Found by Polish scientists, this fossil reptile appears to have original traces of proteins—including the amino acids of collagen—in rock said to be 240 million years old. It clearly shows traces of blood vessels and their “molecular remnants” in bones found during an excavation. “Researchers were soon able to show that there was organic matter from prehistoric animals present in the bone,” including “fragments of amino acids that are typical components of collagen.” This was apparently “among other proteins” detected. This new claim is much older in the evolutionary time scale than the previous record, which they cite as 80 million years. “The latest discovery goes back 3 times further,” the video concludes.Snake BlingImpressions of chromatophores in fossil snake skin have allowed paleontologists to infer the color of a snake found fossilized in Spain. The particular chromatophores have the shape of carotenoids that would have endowed the snake, said to be 10 million years old, with a pale green color. “The findings suggest that the animal had a pale belly and a green back and sides, with brown–black and yellow–green blotches — possibly a form of camouflage,” Nature News says. The chromatophores are apparently mineralized, not original tissue. Still, the preservation is so exceptional, the researchers say in their paper in Current Biology that they cannot rule out some original material present:Certain pigments, including melanins, pteridines, and carotenoids, are known to have an affinity for metal cations. Elevated levels of sulfur in the dermal chromatophores and collagen fibers may reflect the presence of sulfur-bearing moieties in the original tissue structures or the incorporation of sulfur (in the form of sulfate) into the replacement phosphate during mineralization. There is no evidence, however, for partitioning of trace elements among the various chromatophores in the fossil snake skin (Figure 3). This may reflect concentrations below detection limits (<100 ppm) or overprinting of the original trace element chemistry during the mineralization process. The fossil chromatophores are therefore interpreted on the basis of their size, geometry, and, in some examples, internal structure compared with those in extant reptiles.Before this, colors were inferred from the presence of melanosomes that contain the dark pigment melanin. This was the first time that chromatophores containing carotenoids have been detected in a fossil. The search should accelerate for more, the scientists say:Our discovery confirms that direct evidence for diverse coloration mechanisms can be preserved in fossils via an alternative taphonomic pathway, namely replication of tissues in authigenic minerals, and that the high fidelity of preservation allows original coloration to be reconstructed. The various factors that control phosphatization of soft tissues are known, and fossil examples of phosphatized skin are not uncommon; importantly, they have been reported from various taxa and fossil localities, suggesting that our discovery has broad applications in the fossil record. Our discovery should prompt a search for other examples and is likely to be the first example of a recurrent phenomenon. Integuments replicated in calcium phosphate are obvious targets for further attempts to reconstruct color patterns derived from melanin and, critically, other pigments and structural coloration mechanisms across diverse vertebrate groups.The discovery raises a question. After decades and centuries of looking at fossils, why was this not found before now? Were paleontologists not looking?Modern MythologyIronically, Current Biology simultaneously published a book review written by Rick Shine, lamenting the fact that most human beings only know about reptiles and amphibians through mythology. The book by Marty Crump recounts various myths about these animals. Science is so much better, Shine thinks, as he lobs some sarcastic aspersions at those he considers anti-science:Most human beings in the world ‘know’ about reptiles and amphibians through myth, not science. Even in developed countries, the general public is woefully ignorant of reptiles and amphibians (and of evolution, and ecology, and physics, and chemistry, and…). Indeed, many of Crump’s fables come from Louisiana or Essex, not Islamabad or Palembang. Of the teeming millions of humans on the planet, few have access to a scientific education. And even of those that do, folk beliefs often trump schoolbooks as a source of trusted information (and I use the word ‘trump’ advisedly).How ironic it would be, indeed, if future scientists look back on the Darwinian explanation for reptiles, and the long ages of their emergence by unguided processes, as a regrettable myth.He who laughs last laughs best. If you think that complex specified information in reptile and amphibian genes and body types show evidence of intelligent causes instead of “stuff happens,” you should be having some roaring guffaws right now.(Visited 113 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Field Prep Priorities

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Emily UnglesbeeDTN Staff ReporterROCKVILLE, Md. (DTN) — With major storm systems working their way across the Plains, Midwest and South this week, planting may seem a more distant dream than ever.For some farmers, it may be time to start prioritizing some fieldwork over others, crop experts told DTN.“Of the big three — nitrogen applications, weed control and planting — nitrogen is the lowest priority, because we can apply that later,” said Bob Nielsen, an Extension corn specialist with Purdue University. “Weed control and planting take priority in a delayed spring like this.”Farmers can play catch-up with side-dressed nitrogen applications, but once weeds are four- to six-inches tall, weed control will be a season-long struggle, noted Purdue Extension weed scientist Bill Johnson.And, while early planting is just one of many factors that affect final bushels per acre, it does have a strong and fairly reliable correlation to yield — particularly after May 1. Nielsen and other agronomists have shown that a corn crop will lose 0.3% yield every day that it isn’t planted in early May and up to 1% per day by the end of that month.NITROGEN: SWITCH SOURCES OR DELAYConsider switching up your nitrogen source to help you meet a timely planting goal first, said Peter Scharf, an Extension nutrient management specialist with the University of Missouri. Anhydrous ammonia is a popular option for pre-plant nitrogen applications, but applying it can be a time-consuming operation.“Moving to dry or liquid on most or all acres would save a lot of time,” Scharf noted in an article posted on the university’s Integrated Pest Management website. Otherwise, consider moving all or most of your nitrogen to a side-dressing application later in the season. “For those who normally split N, this might be a good year to apply it in a single shot — whenever works best, but more likely at the time of the second application in your split,” Scharf said.Both Scharf and Nielsen noted that, except in extreme circumstances, corn is unlikely to lose yield to very early-season nitrogen deficiency. The crop can still yield very well even if it receives no nitrogen until a V6 to V8 side-dress application, Scharf said. “I’ve put together data from five states over three decades and it all agrees: on average, you’ll get the same yield applying N as a single shot at waist high as at planting,” he said. “It’s not something I’d recommend. But the point is good timing on weed control and planting are a lot more likely to affect your income than good timing on N.”Other spring nutrient applications can also safely take a back seat in a delayed spring, Scharf added. “If I wanted to apply P & K but hadn’t gotten it done by planting time, I’d plant and come back later with the P & K.”BRACE FOR FAST AND FURIOUS WEEDSMidwest farmers may face a messy blend of weed types in their fields in the weeks to come, Johnson warned. A cool, rainy March delayed the emergence of many winter annuals, such as marestail, some of which are just now emerging. Yet as April warms and advances, early-emerging summer annual weeds are also starting to sprout.“There will be mixture of winter and summer annuals to control, which becomes a concern, especially for no-tillers, as you get rank weed growth creating these mats of vegetation that lay on soil and hold moisture in and keep temperatures cool,” Johnson said.Consider spending your first days in the field controlling these weeds, which will quickly outgrow the size at which most herbicides are effective, roughly 4 to 6 inches.“Most foliar post-emergence herbicides in corn have corn growth stage restrictions — many are around V6, or when corn is 12- to 18-inches tall,” Johnson added. “There are very few herbicides you can use on big corn and then you have a challenge of controlling big weeds in big corn, and that’s something you should never try to do on purpose.”At a minimum, Johnson recommends applying a burndown with at least a half- or two-thirds rate of a residual herbicide included. “That allows them opportunity to put more residual on later and spread out the length of time for residuals to work,” he said. But if you doubt your ability to make a timely second herbicide application, put on a full rate of residuals with your burndown, he added.Finally, brace for fast-growing weeds, which will have plenty of moisture on hand when the ground finally becomes warm and dry. “Make sure you have enough product on hand, if you have to increase rates to take down bigger weeds if weed growth becomes excessive,” Johnson said.For those planning on tillage to prep seedbeds and control weeds, an abbreviated plan might be necessary in a wet spring like this one, Nielsen added. “Farmers will either need to be really patient and not run on wet fields and create compaction, or think seriously about cutting back on one or two tillage operations,” he said.For more details on changing up your nitrogen plans in favor of weed control and planting, see Scharf’s article from the University of Missouri here:https://ipm.missouri.edu/…See more on the relationship between planting date and corn yield from Nielsen here: https://www.agry.purdue.edu/…Emily Unglesbee can be reached at [email protected] her in Twitter @Emily_Unglesbee(PS/CZ/BAS)© Copyright 2019 DTN/The Progressive Farmer.

A New Venue for Indie Films: Your iPhone

first_img9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App Tags:#mobile#Multimedia#Trends#Video Services#web sarah perez 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnoutcenter_img Did you see the latest Jude Law movie? The film, a murder mystery from art house director Sally Potter takes place in Manhattan’s fashion world and features other famous actors including Dame Judi Dench, Steve Buscemi, John Leguizamo, and Dianne Wiest. “Rage,” as the film is called, isn’t all that remarkable in and of itself, but the way it’s being distributed is: via mobile phones. Choosing to forgo the typical theatrical release, Potter went an entirely different route for her new indie flick: Rage premiered exclusively on the iPhone.Released last week through the iPhone/iPod Touch mobile application Babelgum (iTunes link), the film represents the first ever attempt to distribute a feature film for free by way of mobile phones. In fact, the mobile platform didn’t just serve as the place for the film to make its debut – it was the primary distribution channel as well. The only theatrical showings of the movie were two red-carpet events – one at New York’s The Box theater and another in London, both of which took place last week. Not only does the film embrace the mobile as the core piece of its release pattern – a pattern which also includes simultaneous launches on DVD and the web – it embraces the mobile platform as a way to tell the story, too. Instead of offering up a large video download, Rage was released in seven parts throughout the week through the streaming media application, Babelgum, which has now climbed to #16 on the list of top free Entertainment-based iPhone apps. The film’s style is also well suited to the mobile with a minimalist look and feel where the story is told through exclusively through close-up interviews of fourteen people who witnessed an event at a New York fashion show. There are no nuanced details or special effects here – it’s a perfect fit for a mobile audience who often half-watches videos while killing time or driving to work. According to filmmaker Potter, this experimental distribution for her new movie is actually an attempt to fight the digital piracy problem faced by the movie industry today. And yes, she’s doing it by by offering up her film for free…albeit in a way that ensures the film can only be viewed, not recorded. However, after watching the iPhone release, those interested in owning the movie can immediately purchase a DVD which includes 21 unused scenes by way of the film’s online site for $24.95. That, too, represents, a major change to the usual release pattern for films. Typically, the movie-DVD release window involves several months of waiting where the only way to watch the movie is through illegal means such as using the peer-to-peer technology known as BitTorrent.  Will this rethinking of movie distribution pay off? It’s too soon to tell, but industry insiders are watching with deep curiosity. Jim Shomos, an Australian writer-producer known for mobile video series, for example, thinks using the mobile platform is a more direct way of getting the film to the target market – that is, people under 35. Others are more skeptical. After all, does anyone really want to watch a full-length film on their mobile phone? Oh that’s right, they do. Apple’s iTunes store is proof of that. Now if we could only get studios to release really good films this way… Related Posts 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People…last_img read more

Mayilvaganan with Barracuda fishThey are not old men but they are one with the sea, fishing in waters which has brought them both business and fun. In a brainwave Manoj Chacko, 40 and R. Mayilvaganan, 45 hit upon the idea of taking deep-sea fishing beyond mere trawlers and make it a pleasure ride for those who had heard about it but had no clue as to how to go about the adventure. With its headquarters in Chennai, Barracuda Bay Adventure, an year and half old company, is now a name to reckon with; for the first time in Tamil Nadu, fishing has become more than just a wait and watch pastime. It’s adventure. “But honestly all we wanted to do was provide a platform for keen enthusiasts to fish. Safely, economically and ecologically.” says promoter Manoj Chacko.Chacko and Mayil had to fight for over a year to obtain permits and clearances to start their business. “It was very difficult. We were bounced around from one department to another. Nobody seemed to know what permit to give us! But six months ago, the paperwork was finally stamped and filed, and Barracuda Bay escorted its first passengers into the deep blue sea. Model Divya Pandurangam with fishing equipmentWith over twenty years of angling experience the two promoters wanted other enthusiasts to share in the joys of deep sea fishing. Chacko is an interior designer by profession while Mayil is a real estate developer. “Tamil Nadu has such a gorgeous coastline and the Marina at Chennai has so much to offer. The feeling of going out to sea on a luxurious boat cutting through the swells is an amazing experience. We wanted others to have this opportunity,” enthuses Chacko. And then the passionate angler in him takes over: “It is such a great feeling. Even after doing this for so long, it is indescribable to see barracuda rocketing out of the water chasing baitfish, giant trevally chasing plugs and poppers around the wrecks, or the sound of screaming reels with a king or a sailfish taking line.” But what of those who wish merely to experience the deep blue? “You just want to laze about nibbling on a sandwich and watch the occasional dolphin pod crisscrossing the front of the bow? Well please go ahead and do just that!

Netflix to borrow another 2B to pay its programming bills

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO – Netflix plans to borrow another $2 billion to help pay for the exclusive series and movies that its management credits for helping its video streaming service reel in millions of new subscribers during the past five years.The additional debt load announced Monday isn’t a surprise. Netflix needs more cash because it has been spending more money than its business generates since its expansion into original programming with the 2013 release of “House of Cards.”Netflix expects to burn through $3 billion this year. The $2 billion that Netflix plans to raise in a bond offering will be lopped onto it existing debt of $11.8 billion. That includes another $1.9 billion debt offering that Netflix completed earlier this year.The borrowing binge appears to be paying off. Netflix has gained nearly 100 million subscribers since September 2013, including 7 million in the past quarter. The company recently predicted it will add another 9.4 million subscribers by the end of this year.The Los Gatos, California, company believes all its spending on award-winning programming will help it build an insurmountable lead in video streaming as other major entertainment companies such as Walt Disney Co. join the fray with a current crop of competitors that include Amazon, Hulu and HBO.Investors have been betting heavily on Netflix to win. The company’s stock is worth seven times more than it was five years ago, to give Netflix a market value of about $146 billion. The shares slipped $3.13 to close Monday at $329.54.last_img read more

Greens call for ban on foreign oil imports using Alberta oil instead

first_imgMay said she’s perfectly fine with Green popularity pushing other parties to raise their games on climate. While both the Liberals and NDP claimed their motions had been in the works before the byelection result, May said there is no doubt in her mind that Paul Manly’s winning and the NDP and Liberals finishing distantly third and fourth, “had almost everything to do with” the motions.The NDP motion failed because it called for Canada to drop plans to expand the Trans Mountain pipeline, a pipeline May also opposes. The Liberal motion hasn’t yet gone to a vote.The Green climate plan also calls for Canada to double its cuts to greenhouse-gas emissions by 2030 and get emissions to zero by 2050. That plan includes no longer selling combustion-engine cars after 2030 and replacing all existing combustion-engine vehicles by 2040.Canada imports about a million barrels of oil a day and produces four times that much. In 2017, Canada produced 4.2 million barrels of oil, and exported 3.3 million of those. Domestic refineries handled 1.8 million barrels. OTTAWA, O.N. – Green party Leader Elizabeth May says saving the world from climate change requires Canada to get off oil before the middle of the century.In the meantime, she wants Canada off foreign oil as soon as possible.The promise to make Canada energy independent is _ perhaps unexpectedly _ in line with the economic and climate strategy of Conservative leader Andrew Scheer. Scheer’s plan calls for Canada to import no foreign oil by 2030, partly by planning an energy corridor across Canada that could simplify the construction of pipelines able to move Alberta oil to any coast. He sees it as a way to find additional domestic markets for Canada’s oilsands, in a bid to increase their production.May’s plan, to “turn off the taps to oil imports” is only a stop-gap measure to keep foreign oil out until Canada can break its oil habit altogether.By 2050, May wants bitumen to be used in Canada only by the petrochemical industry for plastics, rubber, paint, and other such products.“As long as we are using fossil fuels we should be using our fossil fuels,” said May.May’s climate plan is likely to get more scrutiny than its predecessors in past elections.The Liberals and NDP already proved they are paying close attention to the rising threat of Green support, with both pushing similar motions to declare climate change an emergency in the House of Commons earlier this month. Both motions were tabled less than a week after the Greens elected a second MP in a Vancouver Island byelection, and not long after a provincial wing of the party formed the official opposition in Prince Edward Island.center_img Canada’s oil producers already pump enough product to meet domestic demand but there are two problems: there is no pipeline from the oil-rich west to refineries in the east, and even if there were, those refineries aren’t equipped to handle the heavier bitumen that is the Alberta oilsands’ trademark.For Canadian refineries in the east, bitumen from the oilsands must be upgraded to synthetic crude. May’s plan is to invest in upgraders to do it.She acknowledges weaning Canada off foreign oil won’t happen overnight, given existing contracts Canadian refineries have and figuring out how to build the upgraders and then ship the product.Privately, Liberal government critics suggest there is no way to have Canada’s east coast use Canadian oil without building a new pipeline to get the products there. May does not support a new pipeline anywhere, and argues the raw bitumen could be transferred by rail as long as Canada invests more in its rail services.The proposed Energy East pipeline to carry diluted bitumen to the east coast fell apart in 2017 amid significant opposition in Quebec, opposition that continues under the new Coalition Avenir Quebec government.Scheer’s plan is to establish an energy corridor that would allow an Energy East-like pipeline to proceed alongside interprovincial electricity grids, with only one right-of-way required.May said the Greens are the “only party that have a plan that allows human civilization to survive.”“It’s not a Canadian lifestyle choice,” she said. “All of humanity is at risk.”last_img read more
