Simulation of the Oso Landslide

Simulation of the Oso Landslide | ApocalypseSurvival | Scoop.it

"The large landslide that occurred in March near Oso, Washington was unusually mobile and destructive."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, January 13, 1:53 PM

There are several reasons for landslides--some are purely a result of physical geography and others are related to land use patterns.  The landslide in Washington state last year was a combination of the two (see on map) and it is a good teaching moment to discuss the environmental impacts of land use patterns and resource extraction projects.  As seen in this interactive, the river was cutting at the base of the hill, while loggers were clear-cutting at the top of the mountain.  Trees help prevent erosion as the roots hold the soil in place--a critical piece to the puzzle in a very rainy climate.  With $1 million worth of timber on the slope, logging companies persisted despite objections from the Department of Natural Resources and some restrictions (but in hindsight, those restrictions clearly were not enough).  Watch a simulation of the landslide here.

Questions to Consider: Other than economic worth, what other ways are there to value and evaluate the environment?  How could this landscape have been protected and managed better or was this landslide inevitable?

This seems like a useful tool to a degree.  But if we could actually simulate every destructive event then we would be miracle workers.  This was a sad event.  We have left such an imprint on the earth that it's starting to fight back.  We need to be more aware and careful with the one planet we have.  Climate changes are in the news more and more.  We can't ignore climate changes anymore.

Get a better understanding of the Ebola virus

Get a better understanding of the Ebola virus | ApocalypseSurvival | Scoop.it

As a virus, Ebola is remarkably average. Appearance-wise, it forms an unusually long and flexible filament—although other viruses are filamentous, Dr. Vincent Racaniello, a researcher at Columbia University's Medical School and host of the This Week in Virology podcast, was hard pressed to think of any that are quite as bendy as Ebola. On the genetic level, however, things look fairly mundane. Its genome consists of a single linear strand of RNA that's about 19,000 bases long. It contains only seven genes, most of which encode proteins that give the virus its structure. For comparison, a typical herpes virus is over 10 times larger and carries over 35 genes. "It's a pretty basic complement of proteins—all RNA viruses need the same ones," Racaniello said.

 

One gene, called NP, encodes a protein that coats the RNA and keeps it packaged inside the virus particle. Two other proteins, VP24 and VP40, coat the inside of the membrane that forms the outer layer of the virus—membrane that was originally produced by an infected cell.

 

Beyond those proteins, things get more interesting. The only genetic material that can be duplicated by the enzymes carried by cells is DNA. But, as we noted, Ebola's genome is encoded by RNA. Viruses handle this discrepancy in two ways. Some of them, like HIV, encode an enzyme that copies RNA into DNA, and additional copies of the virus are then made from this DNA. Ebola virus takes the alternative route: its genome encodes a protein that can copy RNA into RNA.

 

This gene (creatively called the polymerase, or L) is the largest one carried by the virus. The viral polymerase performs a double role in that it also copies the viral genome into messenger RNAs that are then translated into proteins by the infected cells. So, without a working polymerase, you can't make any proteins inside an infected cell. For this reason, every copy of the virus has a working polymerase protein packed inside.

 

There's a second protein that's involved in making messenger RNAs and copies of the virus—it tells the polymerase where to start copying. It's called VP35, and it's also packed inside the virus when it's sent off to infect new cells. This protein functions to help the virus evade an immune response. The body's immune system consists of two parts that work cooperatively. The one we mostly learn about, acquired immunity, involves antibodies and other specialized receptors that recognize specific infectious agents. Acquired immunity is the whole reason vaccines work. But this takes a while to get up to speed when a pathogen has never been encountered before.

 

This all may sound rather exotic, but it's actually quite common. The group of negative-strand RNA viruses, including Ebola, is quite large. Among human pathogens alone, it includes influenza, measles, mumps, rabies, and hantaviruses. So while this aspect of Ebola is interesting, it's anything but exotic, and it certainly doesn't explain the disease's behavior.

Paris attack rallies Islamic extremists, may boost support | ApocalypseSurvival | Scoop.it

The militant chatter spread like wildfire. Within minutes of news breaking about the deadly terror attack on a Paris newspaper this week, supporters of extremist Islamic groups extolled the suspects in the massacre as "lions of the caliphate" and praised the killings on social media.

 

Loyalists of al-Qaida and the Islamic State group alike described the assault on Charlie Hebdo's offices that killed 12 people as revenge for the French satirical publication's mockery of Islam's Prophet Muhammad and France's military involvement in Muslim countries.

December 10, 2014 1:00 pm

The Department of Treasury is seeking to order survival kits for all of its employees who oversee the federal banking system, according to a new solicitation.

The emergency supplies would be for every employee at the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), which conducts on-site reviews of banks throughout the country. The survival kit includes everything from water purification tablets to solar blankets.

The government is willing to spend up to $200,000 on the kits, according to the solicitation released on Dec. 4.

The survival kits must come in a fanny-pack or backpack that can fit all of the items, including a 33-piece personal first aid kit with “decongestant tablets,” a variety of bandages, and medicines.

Man saved by heroic passers-by

Man saved by heroic passers-by | ApocalypseSurvival | Scoop.it

THE heroic actions of a quick thinking woman from Alcester and her friend saved a cyclist's life when he collapsed on a country road.

The man was cycling along Fish Hill near the Cotswold village of Broadway last March when he collapsed.

Fortunately he was spotted on the side of the road by Gemma Guedes, 30, from Alcester, and her friend Katie Nightingale, who were only travelling down the road by chance after taking a wrong turn on their way to take Gemma's pet puppy for a walk.

 

The pair spotted the man receiving CPR from a fellow cyclist and immediately remembered that there were defibrillators kept at the nearby Farncombe Estate, where they both used to work.

"It was very worrying to see someone receiving CPR as it was the first time that I have ever been in that situation," said Mrs Guedes. "We were just very lucky that Farncombe Estate was so close and that they have trained people to use the defibrillator."

The friends called ahead and were met by security supervisor Tony Haines, of Pensham, near Pershore, who had grabbed a defibrillator.

They dashed back to the stricken man with Mr Haines - an experienced St John Ambulance volunteer - in tow and used the defibrillator to re-start his heart.

He was then rushed to Worcestershire Royal Hospital, where grateful medics confirmed the cyclist would not have survived without the defibrillator and their quick-thinking actions.

"When we arrived the man was starting to turn blue around the lips - Tony gave him a single shock and his heart re-started. After a few minutes the man started talking, which was a huge relief to everyone.

"We waited for the Air Ambulance to arrive and once the man was airlifted to the hospital you could feel that everyone felt a great sense of achievement," added Mrs Guedes.

Mr Haines said he was glad the estate had the vital life-saving equipment . Both he and St John Ambulance are now urging more places, especially in isolated rural locations, to get equipment of their own.

Mr Haines said: “We gave the man a single shock and his heart restarted. Within a few minutes he was talking, it was amazing.

“This incident just goes to show what a difference a defibrillator can make and I would urge as many organisations as possible to have one on hand in case of emergency.”

World Bank Report Stokes Fears of Economic Slowdown

World Bank Report Stokes Fears of Economic Slowdown | ApocalypseSurvival | Scoop.it

Commodities slumped to a 12-year low, led by the biggest plunge in copper since 2011, after a report from the World Bank fanned concerns of a global economic slowdown.

 

Copper futures for March delivery tumbled five percent to $2.5125 a pound as of 11:45 a.m. in New York, set for a fourth day of losses. Nickel erased more than 2 percent, while oil reversed earlier declines, with West Texas Intermediate trading little changed at $45.88 a barrel. The Bloomberg Commodity Index of 22 energy, agriculture and metal products was little changed after touching the lowest level since 2002 at 99.9516.


“It just shows the general level of weakness currently and worries spreading,” Ole Hansen, head of commodity strategy at Saxo Bank A/S in Copenhagen, said by phone today. “We have basically wiped out gains seen in the first decade, and this is obviously a significant change in outlook.”

Investors are bailing out of raw materials after a decade- long bull market led producers to boost output and data from manufacturing to jobs fuel speculation that the global economy is too weak to sustain more demand for commodities. The World Bank cut its forecast for global growth this year, adding to concern of a growing disparity between the U.S. and other major economies.

Copper, Oil

Copper has fallen 11 percent this year, the worst performance in the Bloomberg Commodity Index outside the energy industry. The metal is trading at the lowest level since 2009 as low energy costs make it cheaper for mining companies to increase production, while disappointing economic data from China adds to concern about demand.

China’s consumption is forecast to rise at the slowest pace since at least 2009, Deutsche Bank AG estimates. The world economy will expand 3 percent in 2015, down from a projection of 3.4 percent in June, according to the World Bank report released yesterday.

Oil rebounded after falling as much as 1.9 percent today. Futures yesterday closed at the lowest in more than five-and-a- half years as OPEC nations predicted the global surplus would persist and U.S. stockpiles were forecast to rise.

Prices may recover only when demand improves later this year, Ali Al Yabhouni, the United Arab Emirates’ governor to OPEC, said yesterday.

Bear Markets

Bear markets in oil to nickel and soybeans have led investors to pull their money out. Selling of commodity index- linked investments hit an all-time high of $17 billion in the first eleven months of last year, according to data from Barclays Plc. Total assets under management have shrunk to $276 billion, the lowest since 2010.

The wider slump in commodities weighed on gold for February delivery in New York earlier today, which fell by as much as 0.8 percent to $1,224.90 an ounce before rising 0.3 percent. The metal yesterday closed at the highest since October on speculation that Greece will abandon the euro, boosting the precious metal’s appeal as a haven asset.

Corn dropped to the lowest in more than a month on signs that global reserves are increasing. Futures on the Chicago Board of Trade slid 1.4 percent to $3.805 a bushel.

Natural gas rose the most in eight weeks in New York as an outlook for a blast of arctic air swooping into the U.S. signaled increased heating demand. Gas for February delivery rose 7.6 percent to $3.167 per million British thermal units at 12:06 p.m. on the New York Mercantile Exchange, hea

DIY Garden and Crafts - 10 Strange Home Remedies That Really Work

DIY Garden and Crafts - 10 Strange Home Remedies That Really Work | ApocalypseSurvival | Scoop.it

Some home remedies can really sound off the wall. But as the old saying goes, “Don’t knock it before you’ve tried it!” Here are a few that may sound weird, but really deliver results.

Vodka for Smelly Feet

Some people are just cursed with smelly feet. Generally speaking it’s men, but we aren’t going to unfairly profile here. Smelly feet are caused by bacteria growing on the feet during the day. It is not necessarily a sign of lack of hygiene, though that should certainly be your first line of defense in controlling foot odor. There are a number of products on the market that promise to get rid of that smelly foot smell for you. However, many people are sensitive to the ingredients in these sprays. A better alternative is Vodka! Apparently Vodka is good for more than just toasting. The extremely high alcohol content in vodka can kill odor causing bacteria on contact. Vodka also has a drying effect which helps eliminate the moisture on the feet. Simply wipe down your tootsies with a vodka soaked cloth.

Dryer Sheet Magic Eraser

Many people are simply amazed at the magic eraser products that came out a few years ago. Did you know that your common dryer sheet contains many of the same ingredients as the magic eraser? Using a few leftover dryer sheets can give you the same cleaning power as the more expensive products. All you need to do is wet the dryer sheet and get to scrubbing. The way that dryer sheet material is woven together gives it great abrasive power in your shower making it a far better soap scum remover than many soap scum removing products. To increase your cleaning power, you might want to use a new dryer sheet rather than a used one.

Duct Tape for Warts

Warts are gross, no argument there. But more disturbing than the wart itself are some of the methods and chemicals used to remove them. The thought of having something burned off your body with liquid nitrogen is just unpleasant. It seems that duct tape really can be used for anything, because among its myriad of uses, it is actually a very effective wart remover as well. You can cover a wart with a small piece of duct tape for a week. This can block oxygen to the wart enough to stunt the growth. After one week, remove the tape; clean the area by scrubbing it well with a pumice stone. Recover the wart and repeat once a week until the wart naturally falls off.

Lemons for Morning Sickness

Pregnancy is a joyful time, when you are not puking that is. Majority of women will suffer from morning sickness to some degree. However, many women find their morning sickness so severe that it interferes with their day to day life. When every activity is being interrupted with trips to the bathroom, pregnant women need relief. Most women are nervous to take anti-nausea medications during pregnancy, though. There is reason to be nervous too. Many over the counter anti-nausea medications such as Dramamine have very strong sedative effects that are not good for the fetus. For ladies hoping to take a more natural path aromatherapy can come to their rescue. The fresh, citrus scent of lemons can almost

Immediately relieve nausea associated with morning sickness. Keep a zip lock bag full of fresh lemon slices for instant relief.

 Aspirin for Acne

A common aspirin contains a substance called acetylsalicylic acid. This substance is very similar to salicylic acid which is the active ingredient in many acne treatments. A crushed aspirin can eliminate the red swollen appearance of pimples in about an hour. Simply crush an aspirin and then mix with enough water to make a paste. Apply the paste to the affected area and allow it to dry. When the paste become powdery again, rinse the area with water.

Onions for Earaches

Earaches are the bane of childhood, but also one of the most mysterious. You can never really know what is going on in that deep, dark tunnel of the ear canal. Most earaches are caused by fluid that has been trapped and thus caused infection. The antiseptic properties of onions can disinfect the ear canal, bringing quick pain relief. Boil an onion until it is soft. Once is has cooled enough to touch, squeeze the juice into a bowl. Using a medicine dropper, apply 2-5 drops of the warm juice into the affected ear.

Toothpaste for Bug Bites

A small dab of toothpaste can instantly relieve the sting and itch of an insect bite. Most likely it is the peppermint oil in the toothpaste that brings about the cooling affect. Peppermint essential oil can have the same, if not greater, effect. Peppermint oil has been used for hundreds of years to treat ailments. If you don’t have peppermint oil on hand, then give the toothpaste a try.

Teabags for Burns

Kitchen burns are one the most common home injuries. Even a small burn can be very painful. Luckily the kitchen is also the place to find soothing relief for that burn. You can apply a wet cool teabag to the burned area for quick pain reduction.

Chocolate for a Cough

Finally, there is a justifiable reason to eat chocolate! You have heard the old saying, “A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.” Well two ounces of dark chocolate may contain as much Theobromine as most over the counter cough medicines. Theobromine suppresses nerves responsible for the cough reflex. When this nerve is calmed by dark chocolate you can get a break from your hacking cough.

Yogurt for Yeast Infections

Yeast infections are a result of an imbalance in your pH levels. These levels can be thrown off by several reasons including medications, sickness and personal hygiene products. When you eat yogurt, the naturally occurring good bacteria found in yogurt can bring these pH levels back into balance and clear up a yeast infection naturally.
