Think about that for a moment or two. The past couple of years I have tried, by sheer force of will, to extend summer to late October. Labor Day rolls around and all the shops have slashed their prices on bathing suits, towels, and flip flops. Columbus Day arrives and winter coats are in the windows of the shops in town that are still open. It is a natural shift brought on by shorter days and cooling waters. Fishing season gives way to deer hunting season. Something about all those cottage colonies, all those motels, the scene of hundreds of thousands of summer vacations compels me to drive a little slower. I want to look in every window. But the beach grass, too, is going to seed.
This research cluster focuses on landscape processes, long-term landscape dynamics, dryland environments and human-landscape interactions. Work incorporates landscape processes, long-term landscape dynamics, dryland environments and human-landscape interaction as researchers address issues that form the natural world. Cross-cutting themes investigate today’s key geographical question – how the physical environment shapes the earth and impacts society – through research, fieldwork and lab-based analysis.
Special attention is given to: Investigations are often multi-faceted and inter-disciplinary using a range of techniques including fieldwork, laboratory simulation and computer modelling. Long-term landscape dynamics In this programme a range of field and laboratory methods are utilised to address critical questions in the long term – years evolution of arid environments drylands where a range of proxy data sources indicate that their extent has fluctuated markedly during the Quaternary period.

The age is calculated by dividing this dose by the natural dose-rate in the environment from which the mineral was sampled. The simplified equation for calculating the age of the sample is: Typical materials used for dating are Quaternary sediments, which usually contain quartz and feldspar. Generally, these minerals are very common in all sediments. Natural radionuclides 40K, 87Rb, U-Th-series emit ionising radiation that impacts with the minerals by moving electrons to metastable states in defects of the crystal lattice.
The charge at the metastable state is stored for extended periods of time until the electrons are released when absorbing external energy. During the stimulation process the trapped electrons decay from the metastable state and cause the emission of light photons in shorter wavelength, which is detected as luminescence signal by the luminescence reader. The signal intensity depends on the time elapsed since the last light- or heat impact on the material and — as a very first approximation — the higher the luminescence signal intensity, the higher the accumulated dose and — in consequence — the older the sample.
The photos she sent me matches the one that is currently posted on this website.

Both trials launched last year, and the lab and its 15 researchers, technicians and data manager were ready. Working with local researchers to build scientific capacity in South Africa and its neighboring countries that will extend beyond the work of the HVTN. This is a story of building that lab, from the people up. That was not what Andersen-Nissen saw when she first arrived in South Africa four years ago with her family.
Her first job as lab director was mastering the vocabulary of electricians and engineers, shoving cytometers through doorways and pushing freezers into place. Andersen-Nissen established her globetrotting credentials early, via high school in France and a college semester in Tanzania. It was , and HIV was rampaging across sub-Saharan Africa, with treatment not yet available outside developed countries. By the time she began working on her doctorate — studying the innate immune response under Dr.
Alan Aderem at the University of Washington — she knew she wanted to tie her work in the lab to global needs. Andersen-Nissen had moved from postdoc to staff scientist in the Seattle lab when McElrath offered her a dream job: One Dintwe, who manages the Cape Town lab and is also an immunologist, had a similar ambition. Dintwe left her home in Botswana for South Africa at 13 to study.
Nothing fancy, problem solved. Back then this shopping district was a cen-ter of commerce for ranchers who traveled from hundreds of miles away. The hills to the northwest are a playground for climbers, trail runners, and mountain bikers, and Yellowstone National Park is less than three hours away. Locals were pleasantly surprised to see their scrappy city defeat scenic Jackson, Wyoming, in the final round.

By court reporter Mazoe Ford Updated March 06, Surry Hills A year-old Brazilian man, living in Sydney, has been found not guilty of raping a woman he met on the mobile phone dating app Tinder. Rogerio Luiz De Souza Correia wiped away tears as the jury delivered the not guilty verdicts on all six charges of aggravated sexual assault.

He added that during an interview, Mr Correia told police: Defence Mr Anderson said his client was very forthcoming with police and told them that going back to the woman’s apartment was “at her instigation as much as it was his”.
The Nation By Gift Ndolwane Johannesburg — Socialmedia users looking for relationships or marriages online are in for heartbreak owing to the prevalence of fake profiles and cyber scammers. This is according to research by Kaspersky Lab, indicating that despite around one-in-three 31 percent of people in South Africa using online dating services and apps, not everyone enjoys a positive experience.

Thank you Vodacom for your Gift of Vision! In a beautiful example of private-public teamwork, children at underprivileged schools in the Paarl East area received spectacles to improve their vision. Through the Western Cape Government’s School Health programme, school health nurses do basic vision screening, among other health checks. Children with vision problems are then referred to a private optometrist contracted to the Department.
John Simpson’s native map dated , records the name “Otkiawik,” which was misprinted on the subsequent British Admiralty Chart as “Otkiovik. A post office established in helped the name “Barrow” to become dominant. The governor had 45 days to rule on the name change and it was officially adopted on December 1, Remains of 16 sod dwelling mounds , from the Birnirk culture of about AD , can be seen on the shore of the Arctic Ocean. Located on a slight rise above the high-water mark, they are at risk of being lost to erosion.

Columnist on 12 May, The technology space is particularly notable for the amount of entrepreneurial activity it attracts. The high amount of entrepreneurial activity in the tech sector may be explained by the fact that the costs of starting an online business are low. The list goes on, and it is inspirational.
Alexander Proyer A meteorite has been recovered from a remote area of Botswana. The event is one of a kind as the meteor was identified before entering the atmosphere, and its fall and retrieval documented. Why is the find in Botswana such a big deal? Meteorites are fragments of asteroids or comets fallen on the surface of earth.
Finding a fresh one is rare but what makes this case really sensational, is not the fall itself but the fact that we knew it was coming. Usually, people are taken by surprise, seeing a flash of light or fireball when the asteroid enters the atmosphere. But this one was observed in space, eight hours before it collided with Earth. In this case, it was Richard Kowalski of the Catalina Sky Survey in Arizona, who discovered the extremely dim light of a moving object out in space.
This was only the third time in history that such an early observation and prediction was possible and only the second time a fragment was recovered.
