Black Hole or Cosmic Light Switch?


ThunderboltsProject on Youtube shows that a new scientific paper describes an unprecedented and so-called "mind boggling" event around a so-called black hole - an event so rapid, energetic and completely unexpected to astronomers, it challenges the very bedrock of black hole theory. 

A team of scientists studying an active galactic nucleus observed the brightness of a so-called black hole corona drop by a factor of 10,000 in less than one year.  A co-author of a new paper on the discovery stated, "We expect that luminosity changes this big should vary on timescales of many thousands to millions of years. But in this object, we saw it change by 10,000 over a year, and it even changed by a factor of 100 in eight hours, which is just totally unheard of and really mind-boggling."

Scientists Are Finally Unveiling Secret Space Mysteries


TheSimplySpace on Youtube shows the infinite expanses of space hold many mysteries that fire the imagination of man. They range from inexplicable events to accounts of people who have been in space. Join them in the world of secret space mysteries in the video.

Extracts First Oxygen from Mars: NASA’s Perseverance Mars Rover


iGadgetPro on Youtube shows that Oxygen on Mars was generated by Perseverance Rover’s MOXIE instrument (first results).

On April 21, 2021, NASA confirmed Perseverance Rover’s MOXIE generated Oxygen on Mars for the first time. Test took place April 20, the 60th Martian day of Perseverance Rover. First MOXIE experiment allowed Perseverance to generate about 6 grams of Oxygen. It is enough for human to breathe for about 10 minutes while accomplishing normal tasks.

Mars Oxygen In-Situ Resource Utilization Experiment (MOXIE) accomplished the task to generate Oxygen O2 from Mars’s carbon dioxide CO2 atmosphere. After an hour of operation the total oxygen produced was about 5.4 grams, enough to keep an astronaut healthy for about 10 minutes of normal activity. Mars’ atmosphere is 96% carbon dioxide. MOXIE works by separating oxygen atoms from carbon dioxide molecules, which are made up of one carbon atom and two oxygen atoms. A waste product, carbon monoxide, is emitted into the Martian atmosphere. MOXIE’s shield is made of gold.

The New Crisis in Cosmology


PBS Space Time has good news and bad news. Bad news first: 2 years ago they reported on the Crisis in Cosmology. Since then, it’s only gotten worse. And actually, the good news is also that the crisis in cosmology has actually gotten worse, which means they may be onto something!

Mars Geology Gets Even "Weirder"


ThunderboltsProject shows that in recent months, according to a number of scientific reports, the dusty winds and sand dune formations on the planet Mars have grown even more mysteries. In this episode, we explore why Electric Universe geology may hold the key to resolving both the mysterious processes in Mars' past, and those happening today.

Mars is the 4th planet from the Sun and the 2nd-smallest planet in the Solar System, being larger than only Mercury. In English, Mars carries the name of the Roman god of war and is often referred to as the "Red Planet". The latter refers to the effect of the iron oxide prevalent on Mars's surface, which gives it a reddish appearance distinctive among the astronomical bodies visible to the naked eye. Mars is certainly a terrestrial planet with a thin atmosphere, with surface features reminiscent of the impact craters of the Moon and the valleys, deserts and polar ice caps of Earth.

SpaceX Falcon Heavy beats out ULA Vulcan for NASA Moon rover launch


ENGINEERING TODAY on Youtube shows that SpaceX Falcon Heavy beats out ULA Vulcan for NASA Moon rover launch - Blue Origin human space flight.

It seems that SpaceX is winning the launch of NASA’s VIPER rover.

SpaceX will now launch NASA’s Moon rover to the lunar soil in 2023. This way SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket has effectively beaten out United Launch Alliance’s Vulcan Centaur launch vehicle from their way to get that launch contract. According to the contract, SpaceX will now send a NASA rover and commercial lander to the Moon. Astrobotic, a company which won NASA’s lander contract in CLPS program, had earlier announced that they contracted with ULA to launch their first small so-called "Peregrine" lander and numerous NASA payloads to the Moon in 2021. Astrobotic then had selected ULA’s Vulcan Centaur as their launch vehicle for the "Peregrine" lander.

April 12 - sixty years since Yuri Gagarin went into space


BBC News shows that for the Soviet Union, Yuri Gagarin’s single orbit of the Earth was a huge achievement. There will be celebrations across Russia to mark the anniversary.

On April 12, 1961, aboard the spacecraft Vostok 1, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin becomes the first human being to travel into space. During the flight, the 27-year-old test pilot and industrial technician also became the first man to orbit the planet, a feat accomplished by his space capsule in 89 minutes.

Billionaire is Paying Elon Musk to Send Him to Space


VICE News shows that Jared Isaacman is the billionaire founder of Shift4 Payments, and recently got SpaceX to sell him a personal mission to outer space. This first all-civilian mission is scheduled for late 2021, and will see Isaacman and 3 other crew members launch on a Crew Dragon for a tour of the outer space areas.

NASA calls SpaceX 'best value' for next manned lunar mission


CNBC Television shows how CNBC's Morgan Brennan reports on the new partnership between NASA and SpaceX as the corporate space race heats up.

Space Exploration Technologies Corp. (SpaceX) is certainly an American aerospace manufacturer and space transportation services company headquartered in Hawthorne, California. It was founded in 2002 by Elon Musk with the goal of reducing space transportation costs to enable the colonization of so-called planet Mars. SpaceX manufactures the Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy launch vehicles, several rocket engines, Dragon cargo and crew spacecraft and Starlink satellites.

It seems that recently NASA chose only SpaceX for its return to the moon even though the agency's stated plans called for 2 commercial partners.

SpaceX had been competing against Blue Origin and Dynetics for a pair of contracts for NASA's Artemis (moon flight) program. But, NASA on Friday announced SpaceX would get an exclusive $2.9 billion contract.

Pentagon confirms leaked UFO video is real


It seems that the Pentagon has confirmed that recently-leaked UFO video is real.

The Pentagon is the headquarters building of the USA Department of Defense. As a symbol of the USA military, the phrase The Pentagon is also often used as a metonym or synecdoche for the Department of Defense and its leadership.

Scientists find “strong evidence” for new mystery sub-atomic force of nature


BBC News shows that an international team of scientists, working on a project in the United States, say they have discovered strong evidence for the existence of a new force of nature. 

They say some sub-atomic particles - called muons - don't behave in a way predicted by current theories of physics. 

The British funders of the research say that scientists are "on the precipice of a new era of physics." 

Huw Edwards presents BBC News at Ten reporting by science correspondent Pallab Ghosh.

The muon (from the Greek letter mu (μ) used to represent it) is an elementary particle similar to the electron, with an electric charge of −1 e and a spin of 1/2, but with a much greater mass. It is classified as a lepton.

This Might Be a Brand-New Kind of Star


SciShow Space on Youtube shows that astronomers have theorized about an invisible star made up of theoretic particles in the past, but did we recently detect the gravitational waves of two of them colliding? Plus, extraterrestrial rocks from a decades-old mission keep yielding new discoveries!

Launch Of NASA's SpaceX To International Space Station


NBC News shows live coverage of the SpaceX Crew-1 launch as 4 astronauts head to the International Space Station. The Crew Dragon will take off from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Fla.

The NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) is America’s civil space program and the global leader in space exploration. The agency has a diverse workforce of just under 18,000 civil servants, and works with many more USA contractors, academia, and international and commercial partners to explore, discover, and expand knowledge for the benefit of humanity. With an annual budget of $23.2 billion in Fiscal Year 2021, which is less than 0.5% of the overall U.S. federal budget, NASA supports more than 312,000 jobs across the United States, generating more than $64.3 billion in total economic output (Fiscal Year 2019).

Canada Federal Budget 2021 - CBC News special


CBC News shows how Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland delivers the Liberal government's first budget in 2 years.

In Canada, federal budgets are presented annually by the Government of Canada to identify planned government spending, expected government revenue, and forecast economic conditions for the upcoming year.

Federal budgets are usually released in February or March, before the start of the fiscal year. All of the provinces also present budgets. Since provincial finances are dependent on money from the federal government, these budgets are usually released after the federal one.

The budget is announced in the House of Commons by the Minister of Finance.

Federal Budget 2021: Canada’s debt set to cross $1 trillion as Liberals extend COVID-19 aid


Global News shows that the first federal budget in more than 2 years extends Ottawa’s COVID-19 so-called "lifeline" for workers and struggling businesses another few months as it aims to pull Canada through the pandemic once and for all.

Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland‘s first crack at a budget plan is also widely viewed as a pre-election platform with more than $100 billion in new spending over the next 3 years targeting a wide variety of voters, from seniors and their caregivers, to parents and business owners.

Canada pledges nearly $50B in spending in new budget


Global News shows that Chrystia Freeland delivered her first budget as finance minister on Monday and it included some big-ticket items. Spending in the budget document is nearly $50 billion and the federal deficit is expected to be about $354 billion. That will push the national debt past the $1 trillion mark for the first time. Global News’ David Akin has an overview of the government’s ambitious spending plan.

Governments can create debt by issuing government bonds and bills. Some countries may be able to borrow directly from a supranational organization (e.g. the World Bank) or international financial institutions.

Keep in mind, the Debt-to-GDP ratio compares a country's total debt to its total economic output. This ration is used to measure the country's ability to pay its debt. If the ratio is high, it indicates the country isn't producing enough to pay back its debts. A low ratio means the country is producing enough to pay back its debts.

It seems that there are countries in the world that are not in debt. Singapore and several other (very small) nations are debt-free.

Mars Helicopter Ingenuity's first Flight video (lift off and landing) - Science Loop


Science Loop on Youtube shows that Mars Ingenuity helicopter has made flight history!

NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter Succeeds in Historic First Flight

Monday, NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter became the first aircraft in history to make a powered, controlled flight on another planet. The Ingenuity team at the agency’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California confirmed the flight succeeded after receiving data from the helicopter via NASA’s Perseverance Mars rover at 6:46 a.m. EDT (3:46 a.m. PDT).

***Due to lack of time and information the quality and information of the video is not good enough.

There is also first image from Ingenuity's onboard camera during fly in Mars's atmosphere. NASA's Ingenuity Mars Helicopter took this shot while hovering over the Martian surface on April 19, 2021.

NASA is calling the flight a "Wright Brothers moment" on the Red Planet Mars!

Mars Ingenuity helicopter is also Autonomous. It takes some time to communicate from Earth to Mars. Because of this time delay, we can not use joystick. That is why scientists made it Autonomous. Cool! Isn't it?

NASA's experimental helicopter Ingenuity certainly rose into the thin air above the dusty red surface of Mars planet on Monday, achieving the first powered flight by an aircraft on another planet.

The triumph was hailed as a "Wright brothers moment." The small mini 4-pound (1.8-kilogram) helicopter certainly succeeded.

The first flight was short (just 39 seconds) - but it accomplished a major milestone.

The $85 million USA helicopter demo was considered high risk yet high reward.

To accomplish the fascinating Mars flight, the helicopter's twin, counter-rotating rotor blades needed to spin at 2,500 revolutions per minute - 5 times faster than on Earth.

The helicopter has an excellent solar panel for recharging the batteries, crucial for its survival during the -90 C Martian nights.

Testing face masks: Lab tests reveal the safest and most effective


CBC News in Canada shows how effective are face masks. Months into the coronavirus pandemic there are still no standards or regulations for consumer masks. So, they asked the University of Toronto to test more than 20 different masks. They reveal which are the most effective at keeping you safe from COVID-19, and which masks you should avoid.

Keep in mind, the N95 or Professional-Grade Medical Mask N95 respirators and other professional-grade medical masks are carefully sized to form a tight seal between the air outside and the face. They are designed to protect healthcare workers from droplets in the air. Respirators are certainly highly effective when professionally fitted.

Fabric masks are really recommended to prevent onward transmission in the general population in public areas, particularly where distancing is not possible, and in areas of community transmission. This could include the school grounds in some situations. Masks may help to protect others, because wearers may be infected before symptoms of certain illness appear. The policy on wearing a mask or so-called face covering should be in line with national or local guidelines. Where used, masks should be worn, cared for and disposed of indeed properly.

Good fabric masks should be made of 3 layers of fabric:

Inner layer of absorbent material, such as cotton.
Middle layer of non-woven non-absorbent material, such as polypropylene.
Outer layer of non-absorbent material, such as polyester or polyester blend.

Types of Face Coverings:

Bandana
Homemade cloth mask
T-shirt mask
Store-bought cloth mask
Cloth masks with filter
Neck gaiters and balaclavas
Disposable surgical mask
Cone-style masks
N95, KN95 and other respirators
gas mask (a mask used to protect the wearer from inhaling airborne pollutants and toxic gases)

Canadian doctors call for “extraordinary measures” from feds to fight COVID-19 crisis


Global News shows that the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) is calling on the federal government to take a stronger lead in the country's fight against COVID-19.

In a statement Friday, the national body of physicians and medical experts said Canada was at a "critical juncture" in the coronavirus pandemic and a collaboration between the provinces was needed.

David Akin looks into what doctors and premiers are asking for and the resistance from Ottawa.

Definition of "juncture":

noun

a particular point in events or time.
"it is difficult to say at this juncture whether this upturn can be sustained"

Similar: point; point in time; time; moment; moment in time; stage; period; phase

a place where things join.
"the plane crashed at the juncture of two mountains"

Similar: confluence; convergence; meeting; meeting point; conflux; junction

Canada: How the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting immigration to Canada


Global News shows that the Canadian government has pointed to immigration as essential to the country to recover economically from the coronavirus pandemic, but some experts say that’s a misleading argument with high numbers of jobless people in the country.

But the federal government has recently announced a new program to expedite 90,000 immigration applications for essential workers as part of its goal to bring in 1.2 million immigrants in the next 3 years.

Experts say there will be a surge of immigration to Canada as the world recovers from the coronavirus pandemic, but as Mike Drolet reports, the application processing might take months or years to clear.

Immigration to Canada is the process by which people migrate to Canada for the purpose of residing there - and where a majority go on to become Canadian citizens. As of 2019, Canada has the eighth largest immigrant populations in the world, while foreign-born people make up about one-fifth (21% in 2019) of Canada’s population. This is certainly one of the highest ratios for industrialized Western countries.

Mexico suffering world’s highest Covid death rate as cases surge


BBC News shows that Mexico is currently suffering the world’s highest death rate from coronavirus, with hospitals at breaking point. 

More than 320,000 people are thought to have died in Mexico with coronavirus. The authorities have updated their figures which are some 60 per cent higher than they had previously stated. 

Sophie Raworth presents BBC News at Ten reporting by Will Grant in Mexico City.

The COVID-19 pandemic in Mexico is part of the ongoing worldwide pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The virus was confirmed to have reached Mexico in February 2020. However, the National Council of Science and Technology (CONACYT) reported two cases of COVID-19 in mid-January 2020 in the states of Nayarit and Tabasco, one case per state. The Secretariat of Health, though the "Programa Centinela" (Spanish for "Sentinel Program"), estimated in mid-July 2020 that there were more than 2,875,734 cases in Mexico because they were considering the total number of cases confirmed as just a statistical sample.

Coronavirus pandemic: France crosses 100,000 COVID-19 deaths


Al Jazeera English shows that more than 100,000 people have died so far of COVID-19 in France.

For some of the millions who were infected but recovered, the battle against the virus was hard and at times traumatic.

Al Jazeera's Natacha Butler spoke to some people in Paris who accused the government of not doing enough to stop the outbreak from getting worse.

The COVID-19 pandemic in France is part of the worldwide pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The virus was confirmed to have reached France on 24 January 2020, when the first COVID-19 case in both Europe and France was identified in Bordeaux. The first five confirmed cases were all individuals who had recently arrived from China.

On 31 March 2021, Macron announced a third national lockdown to commence on 3 April 2021, which mandated for all of April 2021; the closure of non-essential shops, the suspension of school attendance, a ban on all domestic travel and a nationwide curfew from 7pm-6am.

Brazil's Covid-19 catastrophe may threaten world as new variant spreads

Facing the threat of a 4th wave - President Joe Biden's administration is doubling down on vaccination, as the key to ending the pandemic. However, local outbreaks threaten to undo the important strategy.

Covid spreading faster in India than anywhere else


BBC News shows that India reported a record daily increase of over 150,000 coronavirus cases - and more than 800 new deaths - on Sunday. This video is from Apr 11, 2021.

Since the pandemic began, India has confirmed more than 12 million cases and over 167,000 deaths.

It has the third-highest number of Covid-19 infections in the world after the United States and Brazil.

(Updated) April 17, 2021 - India reported a record daily increase of 234,692 COVID-19 infections over the last 24 hours, health ministry data showed on Saturday.

It was the eighth record daily increase in the last nine days.

16 April 2021 - Strong earthquake strikes China city


On Friday 16 April 2021, the China Earthquake Networks Center reported that a strong magnitude earthquake occurred near Luanzhou City, Tangshan City, Hebei Province at 4:06 pm local time with a focal depth of 9 km.

Strong tremors were felt at the epicenter of the quake and were also felt as far away as Tianjin and Beijing, according to the official Weibo account of the China Earthquake Networks Center. Weak shaking might have been felt in Linxi located 23 km from the epicenter, Guye 23 km away, Zhaogezhuang 26 km away, Changli and Tangshan.

The strong shaking tremor was recorded in the afternoon on Friday 16 April 2021 at 4:06 pm local time, at a very shallow depth of 9 km below the surface.

The event was filed by the China Earthquake Networks Center (CEIC), the first seismological agency to report it.

Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.

Additional significant news about the earthquake may become available later in the future.

Magnitude 6.4 Earthquake Hits Croatia December 29, 2020 Compilation


A powerful earthquake. See the compilation of the magnitude 6.4 earthquake with a depth of 10 kilometers (6.2 mi) hit the Sisak-Moslavina County, Petrinja, Croatia  at 12:20 p.m. local time (6:20 a.m. ET) on December 29, 2020. The maximum felt intensity was estimated at VIII (Heavily damaging) to IX (Destructive) on the European macroseismic scale. Before this event, there were three foreshocks, the strongest of which with a magnitude of Mw5.2 on the day before. The earthquake was followed by numerous aftershocks, the strongest of which with a magnitude of 4.8.

Seven people were confirmed dead, and at least 26 others were injured, with six having serious injuries. Initial reports show many buildings destroyed in Petrinja. The mayor of Petrinja Darinko Dumbović said that half of the town has been destroyed.

Petrinja is a town in central Croatia near Sisak in the historic region of Banovina. It is administratively located in Sisak-Moslavina County.

On December 29, 2020, the town was certainly hit by a strong earthquake with a magnitude of 6.4 Mw, causing significant damage to the town.

These fascinating Natural Disasters Caught on Tape are pretty interesting.

A natural disaster is a major adverse event resulting from natural processes of the Earth; examples include floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, storms, and other geologic processes. A natural disaster can cause loss of life or damage property, and typically leaves some economic damage in its wake, the severity of which depends on the affected population's resilience and on the certain infrastructure available.

Scary Earthquake Footage Compilation From Around The World


This is fascinating - Scary Earthquake Footage.

Most earthquakes are naturally occurring earthquakes.

There are three types of faults:
A. Strike-slip
B. Normal
C. Reverse

Tectonic earthquakes occur anywhere in the earth where there is sufficient stored elastic strain energy to drive fracture propagation along a fault plane. The sides of a fault move past each other smoothly and aseismically only if there are no irregularities or asperities along the fault surface that increase the frictional resistance. Most fault surfaces do have such asperities, which leads to a form of stick-slip behavior.

The so-called stick-slip phenomenon, also known as the slip-stick phenomenon or simply stick-slip, is the spontaneous jerking motion that can occur while 2 objects are sliding over each other.

Earthquake Caught On Camera: Best HD Earthquake Compilation on Youtube


You will sure like this amazing Best HD Earthquake Compilation on Youtube.

In its most general sense, the word earthquake is used to describe any seismic event (whether natural or caused by humans)that generates seismic waves. Earthquakes are caused mostly by rupture of geological faults but also by other events such as volcanic activity, landslides, mine blasts, and nuclear tests. An earthquake's point of initial rupture is called its hypocenter or focus. The epicenter is certainly the important point at ground level directly above the hypocenter.

1. Nepal (2015) 6:58​
The April 2015 Nepal earthquake (also known as the Gorkha earthquake) killed nearly 9,000 people and injured nearly 22,000. It occurred at 11 : 56 Nepal Standard Time on 25 April 2015, with a magnitude of 7.8Mw or 8.1Ms and a maximum Mercalli Intensity of VIII (Severe).

A so-called earthquake (also known as a quake, tremor or temblor) is the shaking of the surface of the Earth resulting from a sudden release of energy in the Earth's lithosphere that creates seismic waves. Earthquakes can range in size from those that are so pretty weak that they cannot be felt to those violent enough to propel objects and people into the air, and wreak destruction across entire big cities. The seismicity, or seismic activity, of an area is the frequency, type, and size of earthquakes experienced over a period of time. The word tremor is also used for non-earthquake seismic rumbling.

At the Earth's surface, earthquakes certainly manifest themselves by shaking and displacing or disrupting the ground. When the epicenter of a large earthquake is located offshore, the seabed may be displaced sufficiently to cause a tsunami. Earthquakes can also trigger landslides and occasionally, certain volcanic activity.

Chess: April Chess Bonanza in Belgrade


The April Chess Bonanza in Belgrade is pretty interesting. Chess players have ventured to Belgrade this April to participate in chess tournaments. It is now halfway through the Belgrade Chess Spring Festival that has started on 2 April and will finish on 30 April.

Belgrade is certainly the capital and largest city of Serbia. It is located at the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers and the crossroads of the Pannonian Plain and the Balkan Peninsula. Nearly 1.7 million people live within the administrative limits of the City of Belgrade, about a quarter of the total population of Serbia.

Chess is certainly a recreational and competitive board game played between 2 players. It is sometimes called Western or international chess to distinguish it from related games such as xiangqi. The current form of the game emerged in Southern Europe during the second half of the 15th century after evolving from similar, much older games of Indian and Persian origin. Today, chess is really one of the world's most popular games, played by millions of people worldwide at home, in clubs, online, by correspondence, and in tournaments.

Xiangqi ( Chinese: 象棋 ), also called Chinese chess or Elephant chess, is a strategy board game to be played by 2 players. It is one of the most popular board games in China, and is in the same family as Western chess, chaturanga, shogi, Indian chess and janggi. Besides China and areas with significant ethnic Chinese communities, xiangqi is also a popular pastime in Vietnam (where it is known as cờ tướng).

Global News shows that housing that is bigger than a shoebox condo but smaller than a single-family detached home is referred to as the "missing middle."

Some observers say Toronto has been plagued with a lack of such housing for decades. They argue supply in this part of the market needs to be addressed, as that’s part of what drives the ongoing march of so-called higher prices.

See how these types of homes might be able to help solve Canada's housing crisis.

Funny and Cute Monkey Videos Compilation 2019


Monkey Videos shows you cute funny monkeys in this monkey natural videos compilation. Cute baby monkey and funny adult monkeys videos are interesting. Funny animals entertain you.

Monkey is a common name that may refer to certain groups or species of simian mammals of infraorder Simiiformes. The so-called term is applied descriptively to groups of primates, such as families of New World monkeys and Old World monkeys. Many monkey species are tree-dwelling (arboreal), although there are species that live primarily on the ground, such as baboons. Most species are mainly active during the day (diurnal). Monkeys are generally considered to be intelligent, especially the Old World monkeys of Catarrhini.

It seems that later in the first half of the 20th century, the idea developed that there were trends in primate evolution and that the living members of the order could be arranged in a series, leading through "monkeys" and "apes" to humans. Monkeys thus constituted a "grade" on the path to humans and were distinguished from "apes."

How Flying Snake actually Flies - Science Loop


Science Loop on Youtube explains how the Flying Snake hunts by flying through the air from forest treetops. (Hint: It's not a Airplane)

Flying snakes seems to successfully glide through the air, flattening their bodies to provide lift. However, as they glide they seem to swim, undulating their bodies from side to side. Now a team in the United States has used motion capture technology to study snake gliding in precise detail. Wild Science Episodes are pretty interesting to watch.

Definition of "Undulation" (wavelike motion)

noun

the action of moving smoothly up and down.
"the soft undulation of the waves animates the scene"

a smoothly rising and falling form, outline, or movement.
"the road follows the undulations of the countryside"

Chrysopelea (more commonly known as the flying snake or gliding snake) is a genus that belongs to the family Colubridae. Flying snakes are mildly venomous, though the so-called venom is dangerous only to their small prey. Their range is in Southeast Asia (the mainland (Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos), Greater and Lesser Sundas, Maluku, and the Philippines), southernmost China, India, and Sri Lanka.

The amazing snake climbs using ridge scales along its belly. The snake is pushing against rough bark surface of tree trunks, allowing it to move vertically up a tree. Upon reaching the end of a branch, the snake continues moving until its tail dangles from the end of the branch. It then makes a J-shape bend, leans forward to select the level of inclination it wishes to use to control its glide path, as well as selecting a desired landing area. Once the snake decides on a destination, it propels itself by thrusting its body up and away from the tree, sucking in its abdomen and flaring out its ribs to turn its body into a "pseudo concave wing", all the while making a continual serpentine motion of lateral undulation parallel to the ground to stabilise its direction in midair in order to land successfully safely.

Definition of "serpentine"

1: of or resembling a serpent (as in form or movement)
2: subtly wily or tempting
3: winding or turning one way and another (Example: a serpentine road)
4: having a compound curve whose central curve is convex

Brazil hits grim new Covid-19 death record


BBC News shows that Brazil has recorded more than 4,000 Covid-related deaths in 24 hours for the first time, as a more contagious variant fuels a surge in cases.

Hospitals are overcrowded, with people dying as they wait for treatment in some cities, and the health system is on the brink of collapse in many areas.

The total death toll of Brazil is now almost 337,000, second only to the USA.

But President Jair Bolsonaro continues to oppose any lockdown measures to curb the outbreak.

He argues that the damage to the economy would be worse than the effects of the virus itself, and has tried to reverse some of the restrictions imposed by local authorities in the courts.

Brazil is the largest country in both South America and Latin America. At 8.5 million square kilometers and with over 211 million people, Brazil is the world's 5th-largest country by area and the sixth most populous. Its capital is Brasília, and its most populous city is São Paulo. The federation is composed of the union of the 26 states and the Federal District. It is the largest country to have Portuguese as an official language and the only one in the Americas; it is also one of the most multicultural and ethnically diverse nations, due to over a century of mass immigration from around the world; as well as the most populous Roman Catholic-majority country.

The COVID-19 pandemic in Brazil is part of the ongoing pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The virus was confirmed to have spread to Brazil on 25 February 2020, when a man from São Paulo tested positive for the virus. The disease had spread to every federative unit of Brazil by 21 March. On 19 June 2020, the country reported its 1 millionth case; at this time, there had been nearly 49,000 reported deaths. As of 25 March 2021, Brazil, with more than 12 million confirmed cases and over 300,000 deaths, has the second-highest number of confirmed cases and deaths from COVID-19 in the world, behind only the United States.

The dangerous pandemic has triggered a variety of responses from federal, state and local governments, having an impact on politics, education, the environment, and the economy. On 27 March 2020 Brazil announced a temporary ban on foreign air travelers and most state governors have imposed quarantines to prevent the spread of the deadly virus.

Canada watching closely as U.S. suspends use of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine

U.S. tops Canada for vaccine coverage

How Air Canada customers can get their money back for cancelled flights


CBC News shows that Air Canada has started offering refunds to customers who bought non-refundable tickets for flights and vacations they didn't take due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Canada: Protests over new pandemic restrictions heat up


CBC News shows that hundreds of people in Montreal gathered to protest the Quebec government's decision to roll the curfew back from 9:30 to 8:00 p.m. Meanwhile in Alberta, people demonstrated outside the shuttered GraceLife Church west of Edmonton, demanding that it be allowed to reopen.

Canada confirms 1st case of rare blood clot after AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine


CBC News shows that a woman in (Canada) Quebec, whose age was not released, was confirmed to have the serious clotting condition known as vaccine-induced prothrombotic immune thrombocytopenia, according to the province's Ministry of Health and Social Services.

Indian Govt Approves Russia's Sputnik V COVID Vaccine


India Today shows that certain sources have told India Today that the govt has approved Russia's Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use in India, based on its strong immunogenicity data.

Sputnik V is a viral vector vaccine for COVID-19 developed by the Gamaleya Research Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology. Registered on 11 August 2020 by the Russian Ministry of Health as Gam-COVID-Vac, Sputnik V is an adenovirus viral vector vaccine. The "V" in the name is the letter V, not the Roman numeral for five.

Gam-COVID-Vac was initially approved for distribution in Russia on the preliminary results of Phase I-II studies eventually published on 4 September 2020. The quick approval in early August of Gam-COVID-Vac was certainly met with criticism in mass media and precipitated discussions in the scientific community whether this decision was justified in the absence of robust scientific research confirming the safety and efficacy of the vaccine. On 2 February 2021, an interim analysis from the trial was published in The Lancet, indicating 91.6% efficacy without unusual side effects.

Russia-Ukraine Tensions: Turkey calls for peaceful resolution over Donbass


Take a look at this WION episode about Russia-Ukraine Tensions.

Russia-Ukraine relations refers to the relations between the Russian Federation and Ukraine. Currently, the 2 important countries are engaged in the Russo-Ukrainian War which started in 2014 following Russian annexation of Crimea from Ukraine.

Russia or the Russian Federation is a transcontinental country spanning Eastern Europe and Northern Asia. It is the largest country in the world.

Ukraine is a country in Eastern Europe. It is bordered by Russia to the east and north-east; Belarus to the north; Poland, Slovakia and Hungary to the west; and Romania, Moldova and the Black Sea to the south. Including Crimea, Ukraine has an area of 603,628 km squared, and is the second-largest country in Europe after Russia.

Gravitas: The Russia-Ukraine conflict explained


WION talks about whether a war is inevitable between Russia & Ukraine. The situation has become quite precarious, but both sides deny stoking up tensions. What's the reality on ground? WION's Palki Sharma gets you a report. 

Definition: precarious - adjective:

Examples:

not securely held or in position; dangerously likely to fall or collapse.
"a precarious ladder"

dependent on chance; uncertain.
"he made a precarious living as a painter"

Russia-Ukraine relations refers to the relations between the Russian Federation and Ukraine. Currently, the 2 countries are engaged in the Russo-Ukrainian War which started in 2014 following Russian annexation of Crimea from Ukraine. The modern bilateral relationship between the Russian Federation and Ukraine formally started during World War I as the former Russian Empire was going through its political reform.

NATO warns Russia over forces near Ukraine


Al Jazeera English shows that NATO has called on Russia to withdraw forces that the alliance says the Kremlin has been deploying near Ukraine.

Kyiv's foreign minister is in Belgium meeting with NATO officials over Russia's increased military activity along Ukraine's borders.

NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) is also called the North Atlantic Alliance. This is an intergovernmental military alliance between 30 European and North American countries.

G7 nations express concern about Russia's "increasing aggression" at Ukraine border


DW News shows that World leaders have expressed alarm at so-called "Russian provocations." Ukraine has accused Moscow of sending thousands of troops to the region. There are fears a seven-year conflict between the two sides could flare-up again.

G7 nations certainly express concern about Russia's "increasing aggression" at Ukraine border.

The so-called Group of Seven (G7) is an intergovernmental organization consisting of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. The heads of government of the member states, as well as the representatives of the European Union, meet at the annual G7 Summit.

As of 2018, the G7 represents 58% of the global net wealth ($317 trillion), more than 46% of the global gross domestic product (GDP) based on nominal values, and more than 32% of the global GDP based on purchasing power parity. The 7 important countries involved are also the largest IMF-advanced economies in the world.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is an organization of 190 countries, working to foster global monetary cooperation, secure financial stability, facilitate international trade, promote high employment and sustainable economic growth, and reduce unfortunate poverty around the world.

Elon Musk Neuralink Monkey Brain Plays Pong Game explained - Science Loop


Science Loop on Youtube has interesting explanations. Neuralink just implanted a chip in a monkey's brain and demonstrated it playing video games with its mind. The science behind that could be a game-changer. Pager, a nine year old Macaque, plays MindPong with his Neuralink.

The Neuralink Website is at https://neuralink.com

Neuralink Corporation is a neurotechnology company founded by Elon Musk and others, developing implantable brain-machine interfaces (BMIs). The company's headquarters is in San Francisco. The company was started in 2016 and was first publicly reported in March 2017.

Since its founding, the company has hired several high-profile neuroscientists from various universities. By July 2019, it had received $158 million in funding (of which $100 million was from Musk) and was employing a staff of 90 employees. At that time, Neuralink announced that it was working on a "sewing machine-like" device capable of implanting very thin (4 to 6 μm in width) threads into the brain, and demonstrated a system that read information from a lab rat via 1,500 electrodes, they had anticipated starting experiments with humans in 2020; but have since moved that projection to 2021.

This innovative technology has certainly been criticized by several neuroscientists and publications, including the MIT Technology Review.

Elon Musk founded Space Exploration Technologies Corp. (SpaceX) - an American aerospace manufacturer and space transportation services company headquartered in Hawthorne, California.

The monkey "Pager" has learned to control a computer with his brain activity. At first, the monkey uses a joystick to interact with the computer for a "tasty banana smoothie, delivered through a straw." It seems that Pager has 2 Neuralink devices implanted in his brain. The devices, which Musk calls a "Fitbit for your skull," were certainly revealed at a press briefing in August 2020.

The Neuralink devices in the monkey's brain are reading his brain activity. When the team disconnect the joystick, Pager keeps playing the game - and the amazing brain-implant allows him to play the game "MindPong."

So-called "MindPong is an initial demonstration of the potential capabilities of the N1 Link. In the future, the device could be able to achieve even greater things.

RBC CEO: We need short-term measures to cool Canada's housing market


BNN Bloomberg shows that Dave McKay, CEO of Royal Bank of Canada, joins BNN Bloomberg to discuss his outlook for the Canadian economy and the future of RBC as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.

The economy of Canada is certainly a highly developed mixed economy. It is really the 9th largest GDP by nominal and 15th largest GDP by PPP in the world. As with other developed nations, the country's economy is dominated by the service industry which employs about three quarters of Canadians. Canada has the third highest total estimated value of natural resources, valued at US$33.2 trillion in 2019. It has the world's third largest proven petroleum reserves and is the fourth largest exporter of petroleum. It is also the fourth largest exporter of natural gas. Canada is considered an "energy superpower" due to its abundant natural resources and a small population of 37 million inhabitants relative to its land area.

Canada: Small-town real estate heating up in big city way


CBC News: The National shows that with more people working from home and looking for more space, house hunters are looking further outside Canada’s major cities and it’s heating up small town real estate in a way usually seen in big cities.

Real estate is property consisting of land and the buildings on it, along with its natural resources such as crops, minerals or water; immovable property of this nature; an interest vested in this (also) an item of real property, (more generally) buildings or housing in general.

Real estate is different from personal property, which is not permanently attached to the land, such as vehicles, boats, jewelry, furniture, tools and the rolling stock of a so-called agricultural farm.

When will the Canada-U.S. border reopen for non-essential travel?


CBC News shows that Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Dominic LeBlanc tells Power & Politics that Canada needs more robust advice from scientists before laying out a plan to reopen the Canada-U.S. border.

The Canada-USA border, officially known as the International Boundary, is the longest international border in the world between 2 countries. The terrestrial boundary (including boundaries in the Great Lakes, Atlantic and Pacific coasts) is 8,891 kilometers (5,525 mi) long. The land border has 2 sections: Canada's border with the contiguous U.S. to its south, and Canada's border with the U.S. state of Alaska to its west.

Canada’s worsening 3rd wave


CBC News: The National shows that Canada’s 3rd wave of COVID-19 continues to get worse with surging cases and increasing hospitalizations forcing the provinces to pivot restrictions and vaccinations.

Important Canadian research is looking into why there’s such a range of COVID-19 symptoms.

Most people who are infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus certainly have respiratory symptoms. They start to feel a little bit unwell, they will have a fever, they may have a cough or a sore throat or sneeze. In some individuals, they may have gastrointestinal symptoms. Others may lose the sense of smell or the sense of taste.
