AAA reports National Gas Price Average Jumps Eight Cents on the Week

 

AAA

AAATampa, FL – With an eight-cent jump on the week, at $2.62, the national average continues to trend more expensive since mid-February. While today’s national average is nearly a quarter more expensive than last month, it is only two cents more expensive than last year at this time.

“Thanks to increasing demand and tightening gasoline stocks across the country, March gas prices came in like a lion and will not go out like a lamb,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson.

Nashville Predators defeat the Los Angeles Kings 3-1

 

Nashville PredatorsLos Angeles, CA – Just what the doctor ordered.  A big win for the Nashville Predators. 

Tonight in Los Angeles, the Predators did what they needed to do with a 3-1 win over the lackluster Kings. Coming off  of two embarrassing performances of late, the Predators stepped up their energy throughout the game, firing 34 shots on goal and keeping LA goalie Jonathan Quick under fire for most of the night.

Viktor Arvidsson got things started for the Predators at 15:04 of the opening period when Nashville took off on an odd man rush after a Pekka Rinne save on the Nashville net.

NASA Goddard Technologists and Scientists Prepare for a New Era of Human Exploration

NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – NASA scientists, engineers, and technologists are preparing for a new era of human exploration at the Moon, which includes a new launch system, capsule, and lunar-orbiting outpost that will serve as the jumping-off point for human spaceflight deeper into the Solar System.

NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, is playing a vital role in these initiatives, particularly in the areas of communications and instrument development as evidenced by the recent award of five proposals under NASA’s Development and Advancement of Lunar Instrumentation (DALI) to advance spacecraft-based instrument for use in lunar-landing missions.

The technologies needed for sustainable exploration at the Moon will have to be powerful, multipurpose, and fast, said Jake Bleacher, Chief Scientist for the Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate.

Nashville Predators lose their 6th game of their last 11 falling to Anaheim Ducks 3-2

 

Nashville PredatorsAnaheim, CA – The Nashville Predators are limping to the finish line of the regular season, unable to find ways to win.  Tonight, they dug a two goal deficit, only fight back to lose 3-2.

As the Nashville coaching staff continues to try and find the line combinations that will “click” the Predators are still making too many turnovers and not capitalizing on their opportunities.

Ryan Getzlaf got the Ducks on the board first just 3:30 into the opening frame, taking a Josh Manson stretch pass and ripping a snap shot past Nashville goalie, Pekka Rinne and the Ducks would take the early lead, 1-0.

Nashville Predators fall to the Carolina Hurricanes 5-3

 

Nashville PredatorsNashville, Tn — The Nashville Predators just can’t seem to find a way to fight their way through the hurricane. The Carolina Hurricanes.  They’ve now lost 10 of 13 meetings against the team, losing at home tonight, 5-3.

With some momentum coming from back to back wins against the Minnesota Wild, the Predators had confidence heading into tonight’s contest, but the news that Filip Forsberg would not be in the line-up may have deflated that confidence.

Forsberg is listed day to day with an upper body issue and the timeline for his return has not been determined.

AAA says Cold Temperatures Cut Electric Vehicle Range Nearly in Half

 

AAA 

AAAOrlando, FL – As freezing temperatures plague much of the country, electric vehicle owners may experience a decrease in driving range, compounded by the use of the vehicle’s interior climate control.

New research from AAA reveals that when the mercury dips to 20°F and the HVAC system is used to heat the inside of the vehicle, the average driving range is decreased by 41 percent. This means for every 100 miles of combined urban/highway driving, the range at 20°F would be reduced to 59 miles.

AAA research finds HVAC use in frigid temperatures causes substantial drop in electric vehicle range. (AAA)

NASA’s Opportunity Mars Rover Mission Ends

 

NASA Headquarters

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – One of the most successful and enduring feats of interplanetary exploration, NASA’s Opportunity rover mission is at an end after almost 15 years exploring the surface of Mars and helping lay the groundwork for NASA’s return to the Red Planet.

The Opportunity rover stopped communicating with Earth when a severe Mars-wide dust storm blanketed its location in June 2018. After more than a thousand commands to restore contact, engineers in the Space Flight Operations Facility at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) made their last attempt to revive Opportunity Tuesday, to no avail. The solar-powered rover’s final communication was received June 10th.

NASA studies elements that make a Stable Landslide into a disastrous one

 

Written by Carol Rasmussen
NASA’s Earth Science News Team

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – “Stable landslide” sounds like a contradiction in terms, but there are indeed places on Earth where land has been creeping downhill slowly, stably and harmlessly for as long as a century. But stability doesn’t necessarily last forever.

For the first time, researchers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, and collaborating institutions have documented the transition of a stable, slow-moving landslide into catastrophic collapse, showing how drought and extreme rains likely destabilized the slide.

The Mud Creek landslide in photographic image. The radar velocity map shows the pre-collapse (solid line) and post-collapse (dashed line) extent of the sliding area, with faster sliding velocities before the collapse shown in darker shades of red. The highest velocities were about 16 inches (40 centimeters) per year. (Google/SIO/NOAA/U.S. Navy/NGA/GEBCO/Landsat/Copernicus)

American Heart Association says Climate Change may increase Congenital Heart Defects

 

Journal of the American Heart Association Report

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Rising temperatures stemming from global climate change may increase the number of infants born with congenital heart defects (CHD) in the United States over the next two decades and may result in as many as 7,000 additional cases over an 11 year-period in eight representative states (Arkansas, Texas, California, Iowa, North Caroline, Georgia, New York and Utah), according to new research in the Journal of the American Heart Association, the Open Access Journal of the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.

The greatest percentage increases in the number of congenital heart defects are predicted in the Midwest, followed by the Northeast and the South. (American Heart Association)
