"As President Trump moves to reverse the Obama administration’s policies on climate change, California is emerging as the nation’s de facto negotiator with the world on the environment. The state is pushing back on everything from White House efforts to roll back pollution rules on tailpipes and smokestacks, to plans to withdraw or weaken the United States’ commitments under the Paris climate change accord.

In the process, California is not only fighting to protect its legacy of sweeping environmental protection, but also holding itself out as a model to other states — and to nations — on how to fight climate change."

Thank you, +7 Island Sweet Poet's Page​ and +Timothy Street​. Miss you.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Abraham Lincoln
November 19, 1863

In this week leading to Memorial Day in the U.S.A., a reminder that the author, too, "gave the last full measure of devotion"

O Captain! My Captain!

O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done,
The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won,
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring;
But O heart! heart! heart!
O the bleeding drops of red,
Where on the deck my Captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.

O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills,
For you bouquets and ribbon’d wreaths—for you the shores a-crowding,
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;
Here Captain! dear father!
This arm beneath your head!
It is some dream that on the deck,
You’ve fallen cold and dead.

My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still,
My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will,
The ship is anchor’d safe and sound, its voyage closed and done,
From fearful trip the victor ship comes in with object won;
Exult O shores, and ring O bells!
But I with mournful tread,
Walk the deck my Captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.
- Walt Whitman

"Collins and Wanamaker set out to understand the mechanisms that drive a wedge between the incomes of blacks and whites from one generation to the next. Their big finding is this: Between 1880 and 2010, whites showed much higher rates of upward mobility than blacks—even if their parents started from the same economic position. “There is a specific penalty for black people, which is independent of whatever income their fathers earn,” Wanamaker tells CityLab. “And that has been constant over 100 years.”

"So again I looked at microdata from the American Time Use Survey from 2014, which asked thousands of people what they did during a 24-hour period. I used the data to simulate a single day for 1,000 Americans representative of the population — to the minute.

More specifically, I tabulated transition probabilities for one activity to the other, such as from work to traveling, for every minute of the day. That provided 1,440 transition matrices, which let me model a day as a time-varying Markov chain. The simulations below come from this model, and it’s kind of mesmerizing."

Inge Lehmann wondered why the behavior of certain seismic waves, P waves, didn't match what was expected for a Earth with a soft molten core surrounded by harder mantle. She developed a mathematical model that matched the pattern of refraction of the P waves and discovered that the Earth had a inner solid core. Lehmann also discovered the "Lehmann discontinuity" at the depth of about 220 kilometers under continents based on an abrupt increase in seismic wave velocity.

Although brilliant and very accomplished, Lehmann faced a tough battle as a woman scientist. She is quoted as saying, "You should know how many incompetent men I had to compete with - in vain." She died at the age of 104 in 1993 after a life dedicated to science, and is remembered as the Grande Dame of seismology.

The major finding of this work is that the layers of rock exposed within what is called western Candor Chasma record a past environment where groundwater was abundant and occasionally seeped onto the ground surface, forming pools. These pools would have been habitable for life, just as they are on Earth. Dust and sand blown into these pools may have buried and preserved evidence of past Martian life, which would be present as fossils within the rocks that we see today.

If you’ve ever visited the Grand Canyon in the southwestern U.S. you know why it has the name it does—the vistas from the rim of this geological wonder are simply breathtaking, and it’s even more amazing to realize that it was all carved over the course of millions of years through the erosive action of the Colorado River. But there’s an even grander canyon system in our Solar System, and it’s not on Earth: it’s Mars’ Valles Marineris, which spans over 2,500 miles and is four times deeper than the Grand Canyon in Arizona—in fact, if Valles Marineris were on Earth it could stretch clear across the continental United States!

It’s thought that Mars’ canyon was created as the planet cooled, its crust contracting and splitting apart (as opposed to gradual excavation by a flowing river.) But there are sections of Valles Marineris that appear to have had a watery past, and new maps made by the USGS from data acquired by the HiRISE camera aboard NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter—which has been in orbit around Mars since March 2006—reveal regions that were once likely covered by liquid water.___The major finding of this work is that the layers of rock exposed within what is called western Candor Chasma record a past environment where groundwater was abundant and occasionally seeped onto the ground surface, forming pools.

I DID NOT OWN.....
I did not own the night
when the waves
broke on the rocks.
The moon fell into the waters
like a crystal ball
and the splinters came floating to me.
I did not own the moon when you sang,
with no break till the dawn.
I did not own the beach

The morning waited with patience behind the hill.
I did not own that hill.
You brought a crate of beer

I did not own that love.
You saw me distraught
over the unheard melodies
when the universe was singing

I DID NOT OWN.....
I did not own the night
when the waves
broke on the rocks.
The moon fell into the waters
like a crystal ball
and the splinters came floating to me.
I did not own the moon when you sang,
with no break till the dawn.
I did not own the beach
when with lilting steps the girls danced upon the waves..
The morning waited with patience behind the hill.
I did not own that hill.
You brought a crate of beer
and the stars came down on the floor
drunk on the elixir of love.
I did not own that love.
You saw me distraught
over the unheard melodies
when the universe was singing
right in front of me.
And I was distraught that I did not own the universe.
I wanted to stop the outpouring of the verse
flowing ceaselessly out of the harp.
How could I stop it?
I did not own the harp.
After every pause, you took up the song,
and I followed because I did not own the song.
A snake charmer went on and on with the magical strain,
And I dropped exhausted; I gasped because now you whistled
some unheard melody between the notes of the song.
Before I could pick up the words, the whistling stopped.
I could not own the words.
That night, that moon, that song,
that sea and that crate of beer,
that harp and the whistle and the wind
are still somewhere in the space,
and this eternal thirst in me
that I could own none of those things.

In addition to monitoring and providing advanced warning of lightning and severe weather as is shown in the remarkable footage below, the GOES-16 geostationary satellite monitoring system also improves the ability to warn of solar flares for communications and navigation disruptions, give more accurate monitoring of energetic particles responsible for radiation hazards to humans and spacecraft, and allows better monitoring of space weather to improve geomagnetic storm forecasting. Truly a game changer.

GOES-16's Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM) captured this electrifying imagery of the lightning associated with the recent severe weather over the Mississippi Valley and southern Plains this past weekend.

According to a variety of media reports, the storms caused the deaths of at least 13 people, produced widespread heavy rain resulting in flash floods, high winds that down trees and left thousands without power, a late-season blizzard in Kansas, and several tornadoes.

GLM observes total lightning, including in-cloud and cloud to ground lightning, and will continually observe lightning flashes day and night across the Western Hemisphere. Of particular note in this animation is the horizontal propagation of lightning flashes occurring behind the line of intense storms. Rapid increases of lightning are a signal that a storm is strengthening and could become more dangerous. GLM, in concert with other forecaster tools, will help provide more accurate and earlier warnings of developing severe storms and give communities more time to prepare for impending severe weather.

Bad maps and a patrol called King Kong.

Thank you, +Neal Durando

I've done a lot of field checking of WW2 cartography against much less complex terrain. Tactically useful depiction of terrain is the exception not the rule.

We patrolled in small fire teams, larger reinforced squads and platoon-size groups of 30 to 40 men. These patrols could last up to two weeks. We often climbed well into the 100-foot broad-leafed trees, observing the vast, impenetrable jungle and trying to find terrain features that corresponded to our maps. The maps were drawn from old French military maps and air photos interpreted by American sources, and they were usually highly inaccurate. For example, we might suddenly come across a ravine, hidden below the canopied forest, with sides so steep it could barely be climbed, hundreds of feet deep with a narrow stream at the bottom. We had no idea it was there — the mapmakers had simply missed it.

This has been the groundpounder's gripe probably since there ever were maps. Professionals understand that personal reconnaissance is the order of the day. Even with excellent cartographers, major terrain detail might not appear on the maps. I guess it goes unreported what operations would have been like without any cartography whatsoever. The volume of bitching never changes.___Bad maps and a patrol called King Kong.

Perspective...

Although appearing as one object, this image shows two galaxies rushing past each other at about 1,243,000 miles per hour! This speed is most likely too fast for them to merge and form a single galaxy. However, because of their small separation of only about 20,000 light-years, the galaxies will distort one another through the force of gravity while passing each other, changing their structures on a grand scale.

The large black and dark blue structures are evaporation ponds – likely for wastewater from the oil and gas extraction activities. Wastewater ponds allow for the water to evaporate, which leaves behind concentrated residual waste, thus lowering the volume requiring treatment and reducing costs."

Laws against blasphemy still exist in many countries all over the world. In some places, these laws are no longer enforced, while in other places, accusations actually lead to torture, imprisonment or execution.

This week's news reminded us of the blasphemy laws of Ireland and Indonesia.

In Ireland, Humanist and public persona Stephen Fry was being investigated for having truthfully answered the following question on T.V.: "Suppose you walk up to the pearly gates, and you are confronted by God. What will you say to Him/Her?" (Fry insisted that God justify His actions in general, and the enormous suffering of children, in particular.) The case has now been dropped.

On the other side of the world, a Christian-Chinese-Indonesian politician was just sentenced to two years in prison. His offence? According to the governor, people were being deceived if they believed that the Quran forbids Muslims from voting for non-Muslims. According to the leading judge, this had "degraded and insulted Islam." The case is now being appealed, but the verdict is unlikely to be overturned.
