JPL’s Curiosity Takes Selfie With ‘Mary Anning’ on the Red Planet

first_img More Cool Stuff Curiosity’s Selfie at the “Mary Anning” location on Mars: NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover took this selfie at a location nicknamed “Mary Anning” after a 19th century English paleontologist. Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSSNASA’s Curiosity Mars rover has a new selfie, one made up of 59 pictures stitched together by imaging specialists. The selfie was taken on Oct. 25 – the 2,922nd Martian day, or sol, of Curiosity’s mission, NASA reported.NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, JPL, a division of Caltech, leads the Curiosity mission. This latest selfie is from a location named “Mary Anning,” after a 19th-century English paleontologist whose discovery of marine-reptile fossils were ignored for generations because of her gender and class. The rover has been at the site since July, taking and analyzing drill samples.Scientists on the Curiosity team thought it fitting to name the sampling site after Anning because of the area’s potential to reveal details about the ancient environment.Curiosity used the rock drill on the end of its robotic arm to take samples from three drill holes called “Mary Anning,” “Mary Anning 3,” and “Groken,” this last one named after cliffs in Scotland’s Shetland Islands.The robotic scientist has conducted a set of advanced experiments with those samples to extend the search for organic (or carbon-based) molecules in the ancient rocks.Since touching down in Gale Crater in 2012, Curiosity has been ascending Mount Sharp to search for conditions that might once have supported life.This past year, the rover has explored a region of Mount Sharp called Glen Torridon, which likely held lakes and streams billions of years ago. Scientists suspect this is why a high concentration of clay minerals and organic molecules was discovered there.It will take months for the team to interpret the chemistry and minerals in the samples from the Mary Anning site. In the meantime, the scientists and engineers who have been commanding the rover from their homes as a safety precaution during the coronavirus pandemic have directed Curiosity to continue its climb of Mount Sharp. The rover’s next target of exploration is a layer of sulfate-laden rock that lies higher up the mountain. The team hopes to reach it in early 2021.Curiosity took the selfie using a camera called the Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI), located on the end of its robotic arm. MAHLI was built by Malin Space Science Systems in San Diego.For more information about Curiosity, visit https://mars.nasa.gov/msl/ and https://nasa.gov/msl.

Sex offender pays penalty for having contact with children

first_imgPrint Linkedin Previous articleOffload 15-acre landbanks – LeddinNext articleBronagh Gallagher tours with eight piece band admin Twitter Advertisement Emailcenter_img NewsLocal NewsSex offender pays penalty for having contact with childrenBy admin – May 17, 2012 933 A Limerick sex offender has been jailed for three years after he made contact with underage children of an employee of an adult chat line. Glen Considine, aged 39, a registered sex offeder in the UK, with an address at the South Circular Road, and with previous convictions in Ireland, was before Judge Carroll Moran at Limerick Circuit Court after he was found to be in breach of a court order to engage, interact and be honest and truthful with the probation services as part of his rehabilitation.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The accused had pleaded guilty last December to the sexual assault of a west African man who had been sleeping rough in Lady’s Lane in Limerick.The 23-year-old man stopped a garda patrol car after 5am on March 21, 2010, and notified them that he had been involved in a scuffle with the accused. The injured party claimed that Glen Considine sexually assaulted him.When it was put to him by Gardai, Considine admitted that it was his intention to rape the man, “to be in control”.He also said that he wanted to pay someone for a sexual experience, and that he did need help.Previously, between dates in July 2007 and January 2008, the unemployed carpenter from Eden Court had been charged with harassing a 17-year-old girl, making over 100 nuisance calls and telling her that he would find and rape her.In 2008, Considine’s house was searched after the girl made a complaint and traces of the calls led gardai to the accused.Considine was added to the sex offenders list in the UK in 1999 after he was convicted on two counts of indecently assaulting two young teenage girls.After pleading guilty to the nuisance calls, Considine told gardai that he was happy to be caught.He admitted to calling a random number and never had any physical contact with the girl, who lived on the East coast.However, at the time of pleading guilty to the assault of the West African, Considine was said to be engaging with the Lighthouse program for sexual deviants and his defence counsel, Mark Nicholas, sought an adjournment for the course to be completed. Considine was back before the court when a probation officer said that he had been calling “adult party lines,” despite having engaged well with the a sexual offenders rehab program. Considine made calls to the adult chat line and managed to make contact with a minor associated with an employee, and made one or two calls that were said to be of a sexual nature.Mark Nicholas said that Considine had been moving in the right direction with rehab but that his client was living an isolated and lonely life. He conceded that Considine’s behaviour was highly questionable and it was right to have the matter re- entered.He said he showed genuine remorse and offered an apology.He said his client breached the “spirit of his engagement with the probation services,” but that he was doing well otherwise.Judge Carroll Moran said that the matters that were returned before the court should carry consecutive sentences, and that in April 2010 Considine was considered to be a threat to the public.The judge convicted and sentenced him to three years in prison for the harassment matter. He also convicted him of the assault of the West African man, and sentenced him to one year in prison, suspende for a period of four years, and bound him to the peace for four years on his own €100 bond.Considine was also added to the sex offenders register for five years.

IWF insists Ajan must not return as President

The Hungarian has held senior roles at the IWF for 44 years. He was general secretary from 1976 to 2000, and has been President since then. His fifth term is due to expire in April 2021, by when the postponed Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games may or may not have taken place. He was an International Olympic Committee (IOC) member for 10 years from 2000, and an honorary member since 2010, but he resigned from his honorary membership on March 3 because, he said, he wanted “to save the Olympic Movement from negative rumours and subsequent inconvenience.” Papandrea’s term as Acting President could be extended further “at the sole discretion of the Executive Board” according to the new document, which features 26 terms of reference for her own role, plus 12 other conditions. One of the terms of reference states that the Acting President “will oversee, manage and delegate relations with National Federations, the IOC, the Sport Accord, ASOIF (Association of Summer Olympic International Federations), National Olympic Committees and other organisations and individuals”. When leaders of 33 International Federations took part in a teleconference organised by the IOC on March 18, the IWF was represented by Aján. Read Also:Aján’s 44-year reign at IWF under threat as Executive Board members demand change Members of the IWF Board, including Maxim Agapitov of Russia and Nicu Vlad of Romania, criticised Aján in late January. Agapitov said Aján was “continuing to do what he likes and not what the Executive Board had in mind when it determined to elect Ursula Papandrea as Acting President”. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Tamás Aján will not return to his duties as planned next month because his “stand-aside” from the Presidency of the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) has been extended by two months. Aján originally agreed to step aside for 90 days from January 22 while Richard McLaren’s team of investigators looked into allegations of corruption, which were raised in a German TV documentary. He intended to resume his duties on April 22 but the IWF Executive Board has mandated Ursula Papandrea to continue as Acting President until June 19. The IWF’s Oversight and Integrity Commission, which is chaired by Papandrea, has also been mandated to continue its work until June 19. The Commission was set up in January to oversee the McLaren investigation, and IWF operations while those investigations are ongoing, No announcement has been made by the IWF and Papandrea did not wish to comment, but new documents have been posted on the IWF website. “On January 5, 2020 the ARD Television station aired the show Der Herr de Heber, a video by Hajo Seppelt, Nick Butler and Gritt Hartmann detailing allegations primarily against the IWF President, Dr Tamás Aján. “Within the documentary, allegations were raised with respect to financial irregularities, corruption, doping control distribution, doping sample manipulation, doping payment irregularities, doping activities in specific nations and nepotism. “On January 22, 2020, the Executive Board appointed IWF vice-president Ursula Garza Papandrea to the post of IWF Acting President for 90 days, with oversight responsibility for the investigation and the IWF’s day-to-day operations. “On March 21, 2020, the Executive Board extended the mandate for the Acting President to end June 19 2020.” The document was posted yesterday, and the signatories “for and on behalf of the IWF” are Papandrea and the IWF general secretary Mohammed Jalood.last_img read more

Survey: rural Iowans want candidates to address climate change

first_imgDES MOINES, Iowa — As presidential hopefuls make their final pitches to Iowans before the upcoming caucuses, rural residents say they want to hear more about climate change.Some political observers might think climate change is an issue more important to voters in coastal areas. But according to the Center for Rural Affairs, 91% of respondents to a recent survey said they were either “very” or “extremely” concerned about climate change affecting their lives.Kalya Bergman, policy associate with the Center, said the participants were rural Iowans of all backgrounds.“Educators, farmers, business owners, parents and all other backgrounds, and they’re all concerned about and willing to take steps to address climate change,” Bergman said.Climate researchers say Iowa has seen the largest per-decade increase in annual average rainfall at more than 1 inch of precipitation. Bergman said the flooding from the higher rainfall totals is a direct threat to the more than 1 million people living in rural Iowa, where a lot of food and energy is produced.Kevin Griggs runs EOR Iowa, an environmental engineering and consulting firm. He said he believes the state is on the front lines of climate change. And he’s seen it first hand through the work his company does.“Things like invasive species – plant and animal species, even some fish species,” Griggs said.Unlike recent presidential elections, some of the Democratic hopefuls in 2020 have taken notice of voter concerns in Iowa. That includes TV ads that focus on the Green New Deal, or fielding questions about the topic during forums.Meanwhile, the Center for Rural Affairs says voters they’ve spoken to hope candidates will take actions like promoting programs that reward farmers for taking part in conservation and renewable energy initiatives.last_img read more
