Fishing the North Coast: Adult quota met, jacks only on the Lower Klamath

first_imgThe California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) announced on Wednesday that the adult fall Chinook quota has been met and the lower Klamath River from the Hwy. 96 bridge in Weitchpec to the estuary goes into a size restriction as of 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 12. Fishing will remain open on the lower river (with the exception of the full closure from 100 yards around the river mouth), for jack Chinook (less than 22 inches).

Young Solar System Evidence Pops Up Everywhere

first_imgIf the solar system formed more recently than believed, Darwinism is dead. Look how widely scattered the evidence is.Dunes, glaciers, and convection cells in Pluto’s Sputnik PlanitiaPlutoRecent cryovolcanism in Virgil Fossae on Pluto (Icarus). Distant Pluto has no reason to be young. There are no forces known to make it active. Scientists expected a dead world until New Horizons flew past it in 2015. Ammonia “lava” has been found in one region, but it’s not the only site of relatively recent activity.Because NH3 in its various forms is susceptible to destruction by UV photons and charged particles, its presence suggests emplacement on Pluto’s surface sometime in the past billion years.In addition to the debouchment of cryolava along fault lines in Virgil Fossae, fountaining from one or more associated sites appears to have distributed a mantling layer covering a few thousand square kilometers.Keep in mind that Pluto was expected to be 4.5 billion years old. Even if the cryovolcanism were a billion years old, that approaches the last 1/5th of the time Pluto was thought to exist. What happened in the other 4/5ths, such that volcanic activity turned on in the last 20% of its existence? Also, “sometime in the past billion years” could be far more recent; the speculative estimate is based on assumptions about the amount erupted and the rate of destruction.Titan’s theoretical interior (NASA).Saturn: TitanTitan has a belt of ice 6300 kilometres long that shouldn’t be there (New Scientist). There should not be fresh ice on the surface of Titan, because 4.5 billion years is a very long time for it to be covered up by molecules raining down from the atmosphere. Yet planetary scientists found a huge amount of it from Cassini data.Titan has a huge ice belt near its equator, and we don’t know how it got there. Most of the surface is covered in organic sediment that constantly rains from the sky, but one corridor 6300 kilometres long – about 40 per cent of the frigid moon’s circumference – seems to be bare ice.Jupiter: EuropaUltraviolet observation of Enceladus’ plume in transit across Saturn, compared to Europa (Icarus). The plumes of Saturn’s little moon Enceladus are well-known, but those at Jupiter’s second Galilean moon Europa, one of the smoothest objects in the solar system, were discovered only recently. This paper calculates that Europa is emitting water two orders of magnitude more than Enceladus!Europa (top) compared to Earth and Mars.Saturn’s moon Enceladus is known to have a water vapor plume erupting from fissures across its south polar region. The plume was detectable in an observation of Enceladus transiting Saturn by Cassini’s Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrograph (UVIS), but only at 1216 Å (Lyman alpha). Jupiter’s moon Europa also may have multiple water vapor plumes, detected via similar ultraviolet observations of Europa transiting Jupiter (after being discovered via emission features) by Hubble Space Telescope. Comparison of the UVIS Enceladus transit observation to published Europa transit results reveals that Europa’s plumes have very different properties than Enceladus’ plume using the same observational technique. For example, the mass of water expelled is two orders of magnitude less at Enceladus compared to Europa.If Enceladus causes headaches for belief in an old solar system, how much more Europa, erupting a hundred times as much – to say nothing of its neighbor Io, the most volcanically active body in the solar system?MarsHow much of the sediment in Gale crater’s central mound was fluvially transported? (Geophysical Research Letters). When JPL aimed the Curiosity rover at Gale crater, they expected to find evidence of a watery flood in Mars’s past, because a mound of layered sediments in the crater were evident from orbit. Instead, the crater appeared very dry. This paper concludes that most of the sediments were not brought in by water, but by wind:Curiosity artwork (NASA/JPL)The origin of the sedimentary mound within Gale crater, the landing site for the Mars Science Laboratory rover Curiosity, remains enigmatic. Here we examine the total potential contribution of fluvial [flowing] material by conducting a volume‐based analysis. On the basis of these results, the mound can be divided into three zones: a lower, intermediate, and upper zone. The top boundary of the lowermost zone is defined by maximal contribution of water‐lain sediments, which are ~13 to 20% of the total mound volume. The upper zone is defined by the elevation of the unbreached rim to the north (–2.46 km); sediments above this elevation cannot have been emplaced by flowing water. These volume balance calculations indicate that mechanisms other than flowing water are required to account for the overwhelming majority of the sediments transported into Gale crater. The most likely candidate process is settling from eolian [wind-borne] suspension.Mars has a lot of wind and a lot of sand. It would not require billions of years to deposit it. Notice that they speak of the “total potential contribution” by water; that’s an upper limit.MoonThe space rock that hit the moon at 61,000 kilometers an hour (Royal Astronomical Society).Observers watching January’s total eclipse of the Moon saw a rare event, a short-lived flash as a meteorite hit the lunar surface. Astronomers now think the space rock collided with the moon at 61,000 kilometers an hour, excavating a crater 10 to 15 meters across.Impacts are to be expected from our knowledge of objects crossing Earth’s orbit, but how often do they impact the moon? The number of impact flashes observed in human history, which is quite a lot, has to be extrapolated over the assumed age of the solar system.Credit: Illustra MediaHow Did the Moon End Up Where It Is? (Live Science). News watchers may find it amusing how believers in the consensus age have to tweak parameters to keep the moon old. The Darwin family gets implicated in this storytelling:The detailed mathematics that describe this evolution were first developed by George Darwin, son of the great Charles Darwin, in 1880. But his formula produces the opposite problem when we input our modern figures. It predicts that Earth and the moon were close together only 1.5 billion years ago. Darwin’s formula can only be reconciled with modern estimates of the moon’s age and distance if its typical recent recession rate is reduced to about one centimetre per year.The solar system owes no obligation to planetary scientists’ opinions about the ages of things. It is what it is.If scientists followed the evidence where it leads, they would not believe that the solar system is 4.5 billion years old. That value was decided decades ago in order to give Darwin time to evolve people from bacterial ancestors. Then they found some lucky meteorites that gave them the value they liked. That has become the standard date set in stone, from which they will not be moved by contrary evidence (see 23 April 2019).“The great” Charles Darwin. Good grief.

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest I have now been called out to numerous sites to look at striped corn. For the most part it looks like we have multiple reasons for the issue. Some, maybe many, of these are self-inflicted wounds — others are weather related as we have too much rain.If the crop, corn or beans, has an actively growing root system then we don’t see much of a problem. However, if we have an excess of water, very dry soils or a compaction layer then nutrient uptake is reduced. Rarely do I expect to find actual nutrient deficiencies in these cases.What do we do if we suspect a real deficiency? Check first to make sure that something else isn’t going on — such as the restricted root growth scenario.Things to check if that’s not the case:Soil pH — this means grabbing a soil sample from the poor looking area and from the good looking area nearby to compare.Plant samples — again choose plants from both the bad and the good areas for comparison. In corn choose the latest leaf with a collar or the ear leaf. For soybeans use the latest fully expanded tri-foliate leaf. Dry the samples for a day or two so they don’t mold in transit.Send to a lab that is willing to do both soil and plant tissue samples.For information on good sources of micronutrients see the Tri-State Fertility Recommendations for Corn, Soybean, Wheat and Alfalfa (http://www.extension.purdue.edu/extmedia/AY/AY-9-32.pdf). Look there also for scenarios where you might expect to find micronutrient deficiencies — again think high or low pH spots within your field.last_img read more

Women archers get silver after losing to Italy at world meet

first_imgThe Indian women’s recurve team fell at the final hurdle as they lost 207-210 to Italy and settled for a silver medal at the world archery championship in Turin (Italy) on Sunday Deepika Kumari, Chekrovolu Swuro and Laishram Bombayla Devi had a onepoint lead at the halfway stage, but let the advantage slip as the Italians went on to take the title.It was India’s maiden entry into the final of a women’s event. The maiden entry into the final seemed to weigh heavily on the minds of the Indians. They shot a disappointing third end for a score of 50 points out of a possible 60 which allowed the Italians to turn the table on their rivals with a fine round of 55.It gave the hosts a whopping four-point lead that was enough for them to clinch the final.The Indians -shooting in the order of Deepika, Chekrovolu and Bombayla -compiled 54 in the final end but fell short by three points. Italy were represented by Guendalina Sartori, Jessica Tomasi and Natalia Valeeva. Both teams were off to scratchy starts in the final and after the first end, the Indians led 51-50.The Italians managed their first 10 in their 10th shot but with two of their arrows landing out of the yellow zone in the second end, they still trailed India by one point at the half- way mark (102-103).After Sartori and Tomasi opened the third end with two 8s, former world champion Natalia Valeeva gave her team a lift with a 10. The Italians were back on track with a 10-9-10 sequence after that. With the Indian trio only managing a 50-point series at that time, the hosts reversed the score to lead by four (157-153).advertisementEven with a commanding lead, the last end was not a foregone conclusion. Before the last three arrows, the Indian team came back to within three points and even two after Sartori managed an 8.The last but one arrow was a 9 for each team and the gap remained static.As Bombayla finished with another 9 for her team, Valeeva needed an 8 to win. The experienced Italian sealed the deal with a 10 to bring the gold medal to Italy. Italy had won a silver medal in Beijing (2001) after clinching the gold in 1999 at Riom in France.India and Italy had faced off seven times before Sunday with the Europeans holding a slender 4-3 head-to-head lead.Significantly, the Italians had won the last two encounters, at Porec (Croatia) in 2010 and Shanghai at the 2009 World Cup. However, the Indians were going into the final high on confidence after their dramatic semi-final victory over world champions and favourites South Korea. Italy had beaten China in their semi-final.Korea had the consolation of the bronze medal, defeating China 222-214. The Koreans won the gold medal in the men’s team recurve event, defeating France 226-217. Italy took the bronze with a 212-210 victory over Mexico.Korea came out on top in the mixed team recurve event as well when they defeated Mexico 151-144. The bronze went to Britain, who got the better of Poland 147-139. India have reasons to be satisfied with the women’s recurve team booking a spot for the London Olympics. Jayanta Talukdar also sealed a spot in the individual recurve event.last_img read more

World Cup 2019: Oshane Thomas and Chris Gayle star as West Indies hammer Pakistan

first_imgOshane Thomas destroyed Pakistan’s batting unit with figures of 4 for 27 before Chris Gayle smashed a 34-ball 50 as West Indies crushed Pakistan by 7 wickets in their first match of World Cup 2019 at Nottingham on Friday.Pakistan were bowled out for 105 off 21.4 overs, their shortest innings in World Cup history after an abject display with the bat.In response, Chris Gayle walked out all guns blazing and became the leading six-hitter in World Cups. West Indies had barely managed to scrape through to the 2019 World Cup but are already one of the favourites to win the trophy. West Indies had won the first two World Cups in 1975 and 1979 before being shocked by India in the final of the 1983 World Cup at Lord’s.After a long period of turmoil and internal conflicts, West Indies cricket has come of age again. The reigning World T20 champions, West Indies showed their intent in a high-scoring ODI series against England at home earlier in the year. On Friday, Chris Gayle showed why he continues to be one of the most feared batsmen in world cricket.Chasing a paltry 106, West Indies wasted little time. Rather Chris Gayle wasted little time. Pakistan had hit only 1 six in their entire innings. Gayle hit 3 sixes and 6 fours to lead a brutal response from the West Indians. Mohammad Amir picked the wickets of Shai Hope and Darren Bravo but that did not stop Gayle from exploding.50 for @henrygayleThe #MenInMaroon are racing to victory!#WIvPAK LIVE https://t.co/YTelzKYwRl pic.twitter.com/wEhRuKwAXHadvertisementCricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) May 31, 2019Gayle eventually fell to Mohammad Amir for 50 but by then West Indies had raced away to 77 in the 11th over and were on the cusp of a huge win.West Indies still had plenty of batting left to go past the target. and they reached home without appearing to break a sweat.Earlier in the day, West Indies captain Jason Holder had no hesitation bowling in overcast conditions after winning the toss.Sheldon Cottrell struck in the 3rd over of the Pakistan innings to remove Imam-ul-Haq before Andre Russell removed the dangerous Fakhar Zaman. Harris Sohail was the next to go as Russell struck again in a torrid 3-over spell. In the 14th over of the innings, Babar Azam became the first of Oshane Thomas’s 4 victims and in the next 7 overs, Pakistan lost their last 6 wickets to be bowled out for their 2nd lowest World Cup total.After an abject batting display, former Pakistan captain Rameez Raja was aghast and said other teams in the tournament would now be aware of Pakistan’s batting fralities. Shoaib Akhtar, who was part of the 1999 World Cup team which reached the final in England, said he was speechless after the batting show.Pakistan next take on hosts England on June 3 but they have their task cut out – can they iron out their flaws in 3 days? They have very little choice.Also Read | World Cup 2019: Chris Gayle becomes highest six-hitter in tournament’s historyAlso Read | Pakistan trolled after their shortest innings in World Cup historyAlso Read | Not colour, but merit should be the basis for selection: Kagiso RabadaAlso See:last_img read more

McManaman Van Dijk Salah injuries could derail Liverpools title hopes

first_imgLiverpool legend Steve McManaman believes their Premier League title hopes could be left in jeopardy if Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah got injuredThe Reds now lead by nine points from Tottenham, who lost 3-1 to Wolves, following Saturday’s 5-1 thrashing of Arsenal.Defending champions Manchester City are a further point behind in third, albeit with a game in hand against Southampton later today.Pep Guardiola’s side have endured a difficult month with injuries to some key players along with three defeats in their last four matches.And McManaman fears that Liverpool may find themselves in a similar struggle if they were to lose some of their own key men.“If Liverpool get a bad injury to Van Dijk or to Salah, at the same time, your thoughts start to change,” McManaman told BT Sport, via the Express.“Football is one of those things. When they say you have to take it game-by-game, that’s what you have to do. You have to hope everyone stays fit and the best team will win.“Of course Liverpool are absolutely flying at the moment but I’d still say Manchester City have got that little bit of an edge.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“They have got them at home next and they have won the league before.”The ex-Real Madrid midfielder is wary of placing too much expectation on the high-flying Reds.He added: “I don’t want to put too much pressure on Liverpool. Of course I want Liverpool to win the league, it goes without saying.“They are frightening at this moment but every year we pick out teams to win the elague, to not win the league, and you fall flat on your face three months later.“If it’s in April and they’ve got that much point difference, I’m quite happy to shout it from the rooftops but they’ve got a long way to go.”Although second-place Spurs don’t stand a chance due to their lack of squad depth.“No disrespect to Tottenham, I never thought they were in it,” said McManaman.“I always thought that their lack of depth in the squad would count against them.”last_img read more
