Titan’s Atmosphere Is a Hydrocarbon Factory

first_imgA press release from Jet Propulsion Laboratory announced the discovery of complex hydrocarbons in Titan’s atmosphere.  Some molecules have up to seven carbon atoms.  The discoveries came from the recent flyby on April 16, the closest yet, at just 638 miles above the surface.  Swooping into the upper layers of the atmosphere, the spacecraft came close enough for the ion and neutral mass spectrometer (INMS) to sample the chemical mix.  Hydrocarbons (H and C) and nitriles (N, H, and C) were detected, but the location was a bit puzzling: “it is surprising to find the plethora of complex hydrocarbon molecules in the upper reaches of the atmosphere,” the article states.  “Titan is very cold, and complex hydrocarbons would be expected to condense and rain down to the surface.”The press release could not resist holding up the primordial soup can again: “Scientists believe that Titan’s atmosphere may be a laboratory for studying the organic chemistry that preceded life and provided the building blocks for life on Earth.”  Read the 04/22 entry again.  Get past the chemicals, and talk about the information.(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Youth Day: lessons from 1976

He said although today’s youngsters are not fighting for the same things, they are also facing challenges that they need to liberate themselves from, such as unemployment, poverty and crime.“We need to come out of a mindset where we as youth wait for the government to do things for us. We need to liberate ourselves from our circumstances and take up opportunities that are available to us and build a better future for ourselves.”Mokoena said the biggest lesson young people of today should learn from those in 1976 is the courage to fight for change. “We should always celebrate June 16 because the courage of the youth then proved to us that it is possible for young people to bring change in our country.”‘It didn’t come easy’“Unemployment and HIV/Aids are the two major struggles the youth today are faced with,” said Dikeledi Madau from Rustenburg, North West. “We must use the example set by the students of 1976 to inspire our youth to dedicate themselves to being empowered and fighting HIV/Aids, in the same way the youth of 1976 dedicated their lives to defeat apartheid.”Madau said young South Africans remain a central part of the country’s success. “For this country to grow and develop, the youth need to be empowered. The development of the youth is central to the transformation of this country and the enhancement of the lives of all South Africans.“We need to always keep the awareness; we can never allow that kind of oppression to exist again in our country,” said Thato Sibeko from Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape.“Our country has come far in achieving the growth our youth enjoy today – we need to protect that because it didn’t come easy. We need to keep the knowledge of our history conscious in our youth, to encourage them to be daring and face their challenges and succeed.”Sibeko said the day should be used to take stock of the progress the country and its youngsters have made. “We should use this time to celebrate the strides we have made since that day. We should also take this time to reboot and gear up to continue to empower young people.”“Our student heroes of 1976 were fighting to change the political situation of this country back then. I strive to change the socio-economic environmental of our country today,” said Thabiso Tladi from Pinetown in KwaZulu-Natal.“By educating myself and helping other young people also get an education I am fighting for change. I am fighting to see all young South Africans realise the benefits of the uprising.”Tladi offers career guidance to high school students in his community and helps them apply for bursaries and scholarships, and secure a place at tertiary institutions.“We all now have equal opportunities to study and pursue our dream careers and live a better life. The challenge now is to assist young people with information and resources to realise that dream, and reap the rewards that the youth of 1976 fought and died for.”last_img read more

UConn Just Got A Shortcut On Their Road To Perfection

UConn has been slightly less efficient on both offense and defense. As a result, the Huskies have beaten their opponents by only 45 points per 100 possessions this season, down from around 55 points per 100 last season. So if Mississippi State was close to 10 points worse than the Huskies last year, it might be within striking distance now. But 60 points worse than the Huskies …Regardless, FiveThirtyEight’s March Madness prediction model (which does not account for “oh my God, did you see how badly they got crushed last year?”) gives UConn an 87 percent chance of beating Mississippi State and an 85 percent chance of beating whoever they play after that. Good luck.Check out our March Madness predictions. This is the proverbial 60-point game that wasn’t even that close. UConn led 61-12 at the half and scored more points in the first 12 minutes and 14 seconds than Mississippi State would score in the whole game. But here’s the important part: This year’s Bulldogs squad is almost exactly the same team. All but one of the players Mississippi State put on the floor against Baylor (including all five starters) played in last year’s ignominious UConn defeat.UConn, of course, is a different team. Having lost three top players to the top three slots in the WNBA draft, they’ve declined precipitously from a year ago. And by “precipitously,” I mean like so: The University of Connecticut Huskies are good at the basketball. After beating Oregon handily Monday night, UConn’s win streak now stands at 111 games and they’re headed back to the Final Four. Since we’ve pretty much run out of sports comparisons for a streak this epic, note that UConn now has one win for every year of Bilbo Baggins’s life when he finally gave up the One Ring and left the Shire (and they barely look 50!).More importantly, UConn’s road to a fifth straight championship got a lot less interesting than it was before the Elite Eight. Rival Notre Dame is gone, beaten by Stanford. And so is Baylor, the other powerhouse in the tournament, following an amazing upset by Mississippi State. Bulldogs point guard Morgan William had the game of her life, hitting six of eight 3-pointers, while gathering 41 points and 7 assists with no turnovers to help down the Lady Bears.But let’s face it: Baylor losing has likely ruined any suspense left in this tournament. There’s still a chance that the Huskies will get upset by one of their two remaining opponents, but it’s not likely. Stanford, whom UConn could face in the finals, is the last team to beat them — 862 days ago. South Carolina, the Huskies’ other potential title opponent, played them close in February, losing by only 11. But Baylor looked like it might have had the best chance of beating UConn of any team in years.And Mississippi State, whom UConn will face next in the Final Four, let’s see … these teams faced each other in the Sweet 16 last year, and it went like so: read more

Charitable offseason keeps mens lacrosse team busy

In just two weekends of preseason action, the Ohio State men’s lacrosse team has done more than most teams do all season.Coach Nick Meyers has jump started preseason play with a “Thumbs Up,” two weekends full of fundraising for athletic scholarship funds near and dear to the Buckeyes’ hearts.The Buckeyes scrimmaged Johns Hopkins in a friendly rivalry game on Oct. 10 at Upper Arlington High School. Johns Hopkins is the top team in the country, and the game served as a reminder that the Buckeyes have a lot of work ahead of them.     More than $5,000 was raised for The Michael Robert Breschi Memorial Scholarship Fund, which is the largest memorial scholarship endowment in the Ohio State Department of Athletics. The scholarship commemorates the life of Michael Breschi, the son of former Ohio State lacrosse coach Joe Breschi.Michael passed away in an accident in March 2004 when he was just three years old. In the ten years Breschi coached men’s lacrosse, he shattered the record for most career wins with 81.    The 2009 recipient, defenseman Scott Foreman, accepted this honor at the team banquet. Foreman was second team All-Conference in 2008.        The Lindner Memorial Athletic Scholarship golf outing took place last weekend. The scholarship was created in honor of former Buckeye lacrosse player Dan Lindner’s wife, two young sons, and mother-in-law, who died in a car accident in 2006. “Every decade of our lacrosse program was represented at the outing. It was great for the team to see the tradition our program has created,” Meyers said.The Lindner Memorial Scholarship honor was given to junior midfielder Michael Pires. A British Columbia native, Pires has stepped into the leadership role the team has needed. On Saturday, the Buckeyes hosted an alumni lacrosse game in the Horseshoe. The team played with recent graduates for about an hour, while older alumni surrounded the field. The weekend concluded with the annual team banquet. In addition to the Michael Breschi and Linder Memorial honors, awards were announced for the most valuable players, unsung heroes, most improved and players who performed exemplary service for OSU.The banquet recognized the accomplishments of the 2009 team and solidified the goals of the 2010 season. The focus of the offseason will be strength training and teaching the team the fundamentals.“The guys have been hammering away and the energy level at this point is great,” Meyers said. “We are going to work on an individual level and focus on studying game films.” The Buckeyes have a close-knit team, but Meyers would like to see the group get tighter. “We are working on our core values and maintaining what makes our program so special,” Meyers said. Regular practice will begin in January, giving the team just six weeks before they face Duke in the first game of regular season play. read more
