My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN - “Faith and understanding rest on the hope of eternal life.  Before time began, God promised to give that life.  And he does not lie.” Titus 1.

It seemed only fitting that former Clarksville City Councilman Gabe Segovia would lose his battle to cancer on the day God chose to begin his life.  And while there are many who think that is so sad, I celebrate for Gabe.

The pain is gone.  The suffering is over.  Now, go rest my brother!

101st Sustainment Brigade - LifelinersFort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne Division

Fort Campbell, KY – Like most weekdays, loud voices and shouting rang through the early morning air at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. However, this morning was different.

It wasn’t just the incredibly thick gray fog clinging to the dewy grass that made it different. Nor was it the unusually large numbers of Soldiers conducting conditioning foot marches on A Shau Valley Road that made it unusual.

Staff Sgt. Jonathan Rose, the kennel master for the 510th Military Police Detachment, 716th Military Police Battalion, supported by the 101st Sustainment Brigade, 101st Airborne Division, gives instruction to Pfc. Jared Bridges, a dog handler also with the 510th MP Det., during a retirement assessment for Arno, a military working dog, Sept. 4 at Fort Campbell, Ky.  (Sgt. Leejay Lockhart)

New NASA Study reveals ozone-depleting compound tetrachloride abundant in Earth’s Ozone Layer

 

Written by Tony Phillips
Science at NASA

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – High above Earth, more than 20 miles above sea level, a diaphanous layer of ozone surrounds our planet, absorbing energetic UV rays from the sun.

It is, essentially, sunscreen for planet Earth. Without the ozone layer, we would be bathed in dangerous radiation on a daily basis, with side effects ranging from cataracts to cancer.

People were understandably alarmed, then, in the 1980s when scientists noticed that man made chemicals in the atmosphere were destroying this layer.
