40th Public Affairs Detachment, 101st Airborne Division

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – On this week’s edition of Meet your Army, the 40th PAD shines a light on:

Pfc. Ryan Carpenter, 24, grew up in Harrodsburg, KY, and followed his older brother’s footsteps into the Army, after trying college for a few years.

He majored in business administration at Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia.

“I started out studying business, and I don’t know what made me choose that,” Carpenter said. “It was not my cup of tea.”

Once he realized that college was not for him, Carpenter said he talked it over with his wife and they began to see the Army as a realistic career move.

Dodging the Roadkill: Learning To Ride

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – The first time I bought a motorcycle, it was a Suzuki 750.  I bought it on a whim from an advertiser of mine.  It was only $49.00 dollars per month.

HELL YEAH!

I was in my late twenties, working at a big time radio station, extremely full of myself, and I thought this would be pretty cool.  I just straddled the bike, and drove away.  I didn’t have any safety training or anything.  I just took off.

I kept it for a couple of years, but the day AFTER I was run off the road and landed in a field, I sold it.  That was enough for me.

Fast forward to 2016.

NASA Satellite data reveals Amazon Rainforest Drought has long lasting effect

 

Written by Carol Rasmussen
NASA’s Earth Science News Team

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – A single season of drought in the Amazon rainforest can reduce the forest’s carbon dioxide absorption for years after the rains return, according to a new study published in the journal Nature. This is the first study to quantify the long-term legacy of an Amazon drought.

A research team from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, and other institutions used satellite lidar data to map tree damage and mortality caused by a severe drought in 2005. In years of normal weather, the undisturbed forest can be a natural carbon “sink,” absorbing more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than it puts back into it.

This image, taken during a September 2010 drought, shows a line of dead and damaged trees after a surface fire in the Amazon rainforest in western Brazil. When dryer-than-normal conditions exist, fires from the open edges encroach on the forests and burn dry and stressed trees. Under normal conditions, when the rainforests are wetter, this is far less common. (NASA/JPL-Caltech)
