This blog discusses current weather, weather prediction, climate issues, and other topics Thursday, February 13, Why does the Seattle Times and other media misinform the public about climate change? Here are the headlines from their CloseUp section on Tuesday. The only sentences in the NY Times story that suggest a connection with global warming are: They contend the massive decline of sea ice in the Arctic has destabilized a weather pattern that normally keeps frigid air bottled up near the pole. That pattern is known as the polar vortex, and its boundary is a fast-moving river of air called the jet stream. When the vortex weakens, the jet stream can develop big kinks, creating zones of extreme heat and cold. As I explained in a previous blog, the evidence that global warming causes an increase in cold waves is non-existent, and the one or two studies that suggest it have serious methodological problems. If you want to read more about this, some of the leading climatologists in the U. As climate scientists, we share the prevailing view in our community that human-induced global warming is happening and that, without mitigating measures, the Earth will continue to warm over the next century with serious consequences. But we consider it unlikely that those consequences will include more frigid winters.

As a matter of fact, if your missions use Hohmann trajectories, the lift-off portion will take about the same delta V as does the Hohmann from Terra to the destination planet. As Heinlein put it: Heinlein and I were discussing the perils of template stories: As readers may have suspected, many future histories begin with stories that weren’t necessarily intended to fit together when they were written.
Unfortunately, in “Blowups Happen” a capability for orbiting large payloads had been developed. If you can get a ship into orbit, you’re halfway to the Moon.
Usually you will get a message telling you to go talk to a crew member, who will then explain some problem you can help them solve. Jacob, for instance, gets a .
The passage of California Proposition 1A set in motion a complete reconstruction of the railroad between San Jose and San Francisco. This blog exists to discuss compatibility between HSR and Caltrain, integration issues, and the impact on adjoining communities. Today, they are not much of a nuisance and few people notice them, but what will happen when the high speed rail project is built on the peninsula?
HSR will bring a lot of changes, but some of them will be attributable to freight more than high speed rail. This is an attempt to tease out the specific community impacts of heavy freight trains. The Caltrain corridor has more than 40 grade crossings, every one of which will be eliminated. Grade crossings can be eliminated either by closing them permanently, or by building a grade separation overpass or underpass, similar to the many grade separations that already dot the corridor.
Usually, the easiest way to build a grade separation is to keep the railroad tracks at ground level and detour the road over or under the tracks. In some cases, though, detouring the road is not practical because of nearby residential or business frontage, or major roads and intersections. Those situations are where the railroad tracks must be elevated above or sunk below ground level. Those situations are causing quite a controversy in the communities along the Caltrain corridor, because the HSR project’s preference is for cheaper elevated structures.
Mass Effect 1 With a completely new and might I say better look, Ashley Williams is now the Commander of the Normandy ship and a Spectre, ever since Shepard was trialed for his collaboration with Cerberus. Ashley Williams will only make an appearance if she survived in the first Mass Effect game, in which case Kaiden Alenko will not make be available.
Ashley is a Soldier class character, adept with all weapons and heavy armor. This makes her a very useful aggressor in the battlefield. Being a Human Systems Alliance soldier, Vega has all the hardened abilities that the human Alliance is known for, yet his simplicity and dedication prevents him from seeing the rather selfish ambitions of galactic politics.

Carl Maney But they bring there BS here from their countries…. Why cant people see that….. Mike they can move here legally anytime they wish. I like many foreigners who move here for work, as they work hard and not suck off the tit of the taxpayers Jermaine Bullshit. As long as someone moves there the legal way, they are more than welcome!

Why can’t you be gay in Mass Effect 2?
This story was originally published in the October issue of Esquire. Nobody knows who he is and nobody knows who he was. When he was a young man—a boy, really—his anonymity fueled his desperation, and for a short time his desperation made him known. He didn’t become famous the way other desperate and aggrieved young men have, but he made himself well-known enough to think that when he came home after eight and a half years in prison, there might be cameras waiting for him on his front lawn and people interested in asking him questions.
There was just his family and the rest of his life. Advertisement – Continue Reading Below So Trunk—a nickname he acquired when he went away—has returned to where he started out.

However, more recent research suggests that, by using incremental increases in rotation and making a few limb movements, adaptation can occur with almost no feelings of nausea. The old research done on about 30 subjects simply went from zero to full rotation. Moreover, the adaptation can be simultaneous with non- rotational adaptation. So, moving in and out of the rotating habitat for maintenance or whatever is no problem.
It’s thought that rotation rates of up 7. This makes Discovery’s 5. In fact, with 10 RPM, you could crank it up to a handsome 0. Troy Campbell Bottom line: The authors took data from five previous studies, and plotted them all in a common format see Hill chart below. The regions are colored according to the number of “votes” for comfort they got from each of the five studies. Green is where all five agree is the comfort zone, red is where all five agree it is uncomfortable.
Intermediate shades of yellow and orange are where the studies disagree. Other diagonal lines are for g-level in the centrifuge. There are vertical lines at 2 and 6 rpm, and horizontal lines at rotation radius 12 and 15 m.

Approximately half of pituitary adenomas secrete distinct pituitary hormones most often prolactin, growth hormone, or adrenocorticotropic hormone. While these tumors are histologically benign, they have potent endocrine effects that lead to significant morbidity and shortened lifespan. Early and effective treatment of hormone-secreting pituitary adenomas can reduce morbidity and mortality. Consequently, understanding clinical features as well as therapeutic options in the context of the specific biological features of each type of hormone-secreting pituitary adenoma is critical for optimal management.
Of note, many pituitary adenomas classified as nonfunctional may stain for gonadotropins without resulting in elevated serum hormone levels. Here we describe the treatment paradigms based on each hormone-secreting pituitary adenoma subtype.
Now that you have a sense of the kinds of claims that have been made in the name of multiculturalism, we can now turn to consider different normative justifications for these claims. 2.

I’ve played the original trilogy more times than the average bear, with at least hours in each of the three games. Mass Effect 2 Ah, but now, dear reader, things get interesting. I understand the appeal of Thane—so gentle, but so unstoppable; so kind, but so deadly; so spiritual, but so steeped in sin. You know, the Garrus Vakarian. I love you, Garrus. But what about BroShep? So the next-best option is clearly Tali! Tali is the best romance choice for BroShep and I will hear no arguments, especially from you crazy people who romanced Miranda.
