Geologists Fight Over Demise of Dinosaurs

first_img“No basis in fact” and “circular reasoning” are some of the phrases in a UK News Telegraph report about the cause of dinosaur extinction, along with words like “feud” and “no consensus” and “doggedly undecided.”  Despite the “much-loved disaster movie scenario” of an asteroid impact wiping out the dinosaurs, a significant number of critics dispute the idea.  They claim the impact predated the extinction, and even doubt that one theory can explain it.Note the distinction between the real backroom brawls in historical sciences vs. the absolute certainty conveyed in the children’s TV shows.  Here is another reason for “teach the controversy.”(Visited 5 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img

Credit Crunch Derails Zero-Energy Home Project

first_imgBanks No Longer Willing to Provide Construction LoansISSAQUAH, WA — Construction of the Z-Home project, a ten-unit zero-energy housing development in Issaquah, Washington, has been halted by the credit crunch, according to the Issaquah Press. The project’s two main developers are the City of Issaquah and Howland Homes of Shoreline, Washington, with further help from Puget Sound Energy, King County Built Green, and the Washington State University Energy Program.Among the planned features of the Z-Home buildings are 11-inch-thick cellulose-filled double-stud walls, ground-source heat pumps, rooftop photovoltaic arrays, and real-time energy monitors with living-room displays. Construction of the Z-Home townhouse project, touted as “the first multi-unit zero-energy project in the country,” was announced last fall before all of the necessary financing had been secured.“The day the stock market dropped 800 points was the day of our groundbreaking,” said Brad Liljequist, the Zero Energy Project Manager for the city of Issaquah. “It was stunning. Within a two-week period, we went from a number of banks saying, ‘Yes, we’re on board and we’re interested,’ to banks saying, ‘No, we can’t do it.’ ” Liljequist says that the planned October 2009 completion date for the Z-Home townhouses now “looks doubtful.”The Issaquah Press story quoted David Fujimoto, Issaquah’s resource conservation office manager. “The Bank of America is not doing any lending for home construction on the West Coast,” Fujimoto said. “It’s a volatile time.” For more information on Issaquah’s zero-energy project, visit read more

Tax Bill Would Deal a Blow to Renewables

first_imgRethinking the GridSolar Power Alone Won’t Solve Energy or Climate NeedsCan Solar Power Solve the Coal Problem?Is Nuclear Power Our Energy Future or a Dinosaur? Long-term picture is still positive for renewablesSteadily declining prices for renewable energy point to continued adoption, despite provisions in the pending legislation. The wind and solar industries have been expecting a gradual loss of federal tax subsidies over the next several years, but if the changes are sudden, fewer projects would be started and electricity prices would go up in markets already committed to putting more renewable energy on the grid.The debate comes at a time when the production of solar electricity is surging. PV Magazine reports that solar electricity grew by 47% in the first nine months of the year over the same period a year ago.Citing figures from the U.S. Energy Information Agency, the magazine said that solar electric output in every single state had increased. Some states more than doubled the amount of solar electricity they generate. California is still the leader with more than five times the output of Arizona, the number two state.The growth of residential solar was 32% from 2016 to 2017, with the PV’s overall market share rising from 1.3% to 1.9%. RELATED ARTICLES Republican tax bills now in the hands of congressional negotiators would weaken a variety of federal incentives for renewable energy, but a lot is riding on a final version of the bill the GOP hopes to pass by the end of the year. The New York Times reports that wind and solar are two of the fastest growing energy sources in the country and provided 7% of the country’s electricity last year. Renewable energy is now less expensive than power provided by fossil fuel plants in some parts of the country as costs for wind and solar facilities continue to decline.But both the House and Senate versions of the tax overhaul would make renewables less attractive. An analysis by the Rhodium Group shows that the two versions of the bill affect wind, solar, and other energy sources in different ways. House and Senate conferees are now trying to come up with a single version of the bill.Many of the changes would affect utility-scale projects, although some would have an impact on small-scale facilities. For example, the House bill extends the 30% investment tax credit for small wind projects through 2021 before phasing it out. But it requires a plan for continuous construction rather than simply starting construction in order to claim the credit, a disadvantage. For solar energy, the House bill would make it harder for developers to get projects on the books before 2020 when the 30% credit begins to drop. For both solar and wind energy, the Senate’s inclusion of a provision called Base Erosion Anti-Abuse Tax, or BEAT, designed to stop big companies from shifting profits overseas, would have the effect of reducing the value of current investment tax credits. That could dry up financing for many solar and wind projects.If you’re thinking about buying an electric vehicle, start rooting for the Senate’s version of the bill. It keeps the $7,500 federal credit while the House version eliminates it.Reaction has been predictably mixed.At a recent White House event aimed at giving a plug to the GOP tax plan, a coal plant employee from North Dakota thanked President Trump for the House plan to cut the production tax credit for wind because the credit has “destroyed” the energy market. “Wind production has really eroded our state tax base and replaced coal production when it comes to electricity production,” Jessica Unruh told the president.On the other hand, the American Wind Energy Association warns of a sharp decline in wind installations if the Republican plan passes.“We would see a drastic drop-off in wind installations,” Michael Goggin, the senior director of research at the American Wind Energy Association told The Times. “We’re already seeing orders put on hold and projects not able to get refinancing. Even the threat of this bill is having a chilling effect.”last_img read more

US China wrap up trade talks after Trump tweetstorm

first_imgShanghai: Chinese and US negotiators held their first face-to-face talks Wednesday since agreeing to a trade war truce last month, but the short meeting in Shanghai was overshadowed by a Twitter tirade from President Donald Trump. Washington and Beijing have so far hit each other with punitive tariffs covering more than USD 360 billion in two-way trade in a row centred on demands for China to curb the alleged theft of American technology and provide a level playing field to US companies. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from US US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin shook hands and exchanged pleasantries with Vice Premier Liu He Wednesday morning. The group then went behind closed doors for around four hours in the first face-to-face negotiations since Trump agreed to a truce with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping in June following a breakdown a month earlier. The talks were relatively brief and the group emerged later, a little earlier than expected, for a group photo before the US trade officials left for the airport without speaking to reporters. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential polls Lighthizer and Mnuchin arrived in Shanghai on Tuesday and joined Chinese officials for dinner and informal discussions – just as Trump took to Twitter to lambast what he said was a lack of willingness by Beijing to broker a fair deal. “My team is negotiating with them now, but they always change the deal in the end to their benefit,” Trump wrote Tuesday. This time the US leader said Beijing was supposed to start buying US agricultural products but they have shown “no signs that they are doing so”. “That is the problem with China, they just don’t come through,” he added. Trump had previously accused China of reneging on its commitments when previous talks broke down in May. Analysts said his remarks would do little to ease the already-tense relationship between Washington and Beijing. “Whatever shred of optimism markets had about the ongoing trade negotiations were dealt as a severe blow when President Trump flew off the handle again,” said Stephen Innes, managing partner at VM Markets Singapore. “(The tweets show) Trump seems eager to get a deal, that shows his weakness,” said Shanghai-based professor Shen Dingli. A commentary in the Communist Party mouthpiece People’s Daily on Wednesday, while not mentioning Trump by name, complained that as the talks started, “the drums of some Americans struck again on the side, disturbing the main melody”. Days before the Shanghai meeting, Trump threatened to pull recognition of China’s developing nation status at the World Trade Organization, which Beijing called “arrogance”. Expectations were already low before the talks, although and analysts predicted that little of substance would be announced. “The short duration of the current meeting to me suggests that this is exploratory,” said J Michael Cole, a Taipei-based senior fellow with the Global Taiwan Institute in Washington. “It signals that no major breakthroughs are expected and that the expectations of achievements are modest at best.” Officials on both sides were keeping a low profile throughout their Shanghai trip. US trade negotiators entered and left their hotel on Shanghai’s waterfront through side doors without going through public areas, and did not stop to speak to the press or show their faces. Trump said last week he believed Beijing was hoping to delay a deal until after the US presidential election in November 2020, saying China wanted to see if a Democratic opponent wins the vote so it could “continue to rip off the USA”. “He (Trump) can’t afford politically to step up and say ‘I made a great deal with China’ when it’s not a great deal,” said Derek M Scissors, resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. “So the most likely outcome is we get nothing until the election.” But the trade war is taking its toll on both sides. In a report published Wednesday in official news agency Xinhua, The Political Bureau of China’s Central Committee warned of “new risks and increasing downward pressure” on the Chinese economy.last_img read more


first_imgAdvertisement Running off to join the circus sounds like avenue of the carefree, what one would do instead of, say, getting a 9-5 job. But after an hour backstage at Cirque du Soleil’s touring arena production of Corteo, you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who works harder to create something that feels and looks so magically effortless.Hours before the curtain is scheduled to rise, the arena is abuzz with activity. A giant teeter-totter sits in the middle of the stage and a team of strong young men take turns leaping on and off of it, higher and higher in the air. The rehearsal playlist includes “Champagne Supernova” and, appropriately enough, “Jump.” Backstage, a performer works out some choreography with her spotter. A six-foot tall chandelier made of steel and decked out with sturdy acrylic beads sits in the corner. A very muscular shirtless gentleman warms up by lifting weights. A young woman casually juggles bowling pins next to a pair of beds that are actually trampolines.When the muscular gentleman starts to spin around the stage in a giant metal hoop (the Cyr wheel, more about that in a minute), it strikes me that it’s almost more impressive to see such physical feats performed outside of the magical bubble of the show. These are real people in warm-up clothes, leaping, spinning, flipping, twisting to the very edges of physical possibility. Login/Register With: A member of Cirque du Soleil’s Corteo show performs on the high bar during practice for the show at Toronto’s Scotia Bank Centre. PETER J THOMPSON/NATIONAL POSTTiming is Everything“I was originally a trampolinist…so I could already do a lot of the flips and flying through the air,” says Harvey Donnelly, one of the acrobats featured in the teeterboard act. “The next thing to learn is how do you get those flips onto that piece of apparatus. And that’s the hardest thing is learning the timing of the teeterboard and learning how to jump off at the right time, and how to land back on.”Spinning and FallingThe Cyr Wheel is a steel circle large enough to frame a human body spread-eagled like Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man. It’s named after Canadian circus performer Daniel Cyr, who is credited with reinventing it for the circus. Performers frame themselves in the circle and roll around the stage, sometimes at a leisurely pace, sometimes at a manic spin. It’s dizzying to watch, much less to be in.Donnelly joined Cirque du Soleil on the strength of his trampolining skills. It was only after he was hired that he learned how to use the Cyr Wheel. “I’m not going to lie, that is a lot of spinning and falling, spinning and falling,” he says. “I thought that there was some secret potion, some trick, but there’s not, there’s just getting it, spin until you know how to keep spinning and then once you work out the timing, you got it.”As for how many weeks of spinning and falling before he got it, Harvey is modest. “The truth is, if you ask any circus performer how long it took them to ‘get it’, the first thing you think is ‘I’m still trying to get it!’ But really to get a comfortable spin and not fall on my bum, it took me about six weeks.” A performer uses a hoop during practice for the show. PETER J THOMPSON/NATIONAL POSTThe CostumeWhile Donnelly is spinning (not falling, at least not on my watch) onstage, Catherine Duval, the assistant head of wardrobe, is backstage mending tears, replacing buttons and generally making sure the hundreds of costumes in her charge are clean and – more importantly – safe for the performers to wear each night. The costumes evolve when new cast members join and develop their performance. “After training you can feel how the costume lives,” says Duval. “It always depends what is the act onstage, but for us here it’s important that everybody be comfortable and safe – we need to check all the costumes each day to make sure they have no holes, or missing buttons.”Duval and her team are also on hand as dressers for the cast. “We zip, unzip, untie – everything,” she says. “There are some quick changes…we have the grand angels at the end, and when they come out of the stage, there are big wings and we need to unclip, undress and it’s really quick. It’s not stressful, but it’s a really quick one – we need to be on time.”Suspended pole performer Stephanie Ortega of France practices. PETER J THOMPSON/NATIONAL POSTThe Lights“About once a week, we will rehearse our teeterboard in our show lights,” says Donnelly. “We prefer not to be in our show lights, simply because it’s so hot. In the show you’ll watch us to a six or seven minute full acrobatic act in a jam-packed arena under the lights, and by the time we come offstage we’re dripping with sweat!”The stage lights may make the acrobats sweat, but they’re also obviously a key part of the magical transition. The chandeliers, for example, are made of steel and dripping with clear acrylic beads that the acrobats dangle from. Backstage, one of them sits on the ground, at least four feet in girth and almost six in height. The steel looks firm and strong, and the beads are sturdy – but from out in the audience, the lights transform acrylic and steel into sparkling crystal and brass.Juggler Johan Jusslin of Finland. PETER J THOMPSON/NATIONAL POSTThe Moment Before“I’m in a team of five guys, so we’re always warming up together,” says Donnelly. “Minutes before we hit the stage we’ll talk through our act, so we walk and talk our way through it. We stretch, warm up, usually joking. But we’ll always take a minute or two of silence to go through everything in our heads. But really the best way I can describe it is, the moment you hit the stage it’s like, have you ever dived into a cold pool? You know the moment your feet leave the edge of the pool but you haven’t hit the water yet? When we step on stage, we’ve jumped into the cold pool.”SPECIAL TO NATIONAL POST Facebook Advertisementcenter_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Twitter Advertisement All in a day’s work at Cirque du Soleil’s traveling production of Corteo.What comes first, the apparatus or the acrobat?Julie Dionne is one of the acrobats in the big chandelier act, and she has been with Corteo off and on since the beginning, having worked on the show’s original development in 2004. “Because our apparatus is already so dramatic, they’re huge chandeliers, so it gives a tone to the act already,” she says. “And then in creation…it was a lot of research with a new apparatus, the physical vocabulary.” Sometimes they’d come up with moves that were beautiful, but couldn’t be seen amid the lines of the chandelier. “There’s two ways – you put yourself in a good mood, the ambiance, and you find the vocabulary, or you go very technically, ‘what can I do as an acrobat and what does that express?’”last_img read more
