NASA Radar Demonstrates Ability to Foresee Sinkholes

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationNASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL)Washington, DC – New analyses of NASA airborne radar data collected in 2012 reveal the radar detected indications of a huge sinkhole before it collapsed and forced evacuations near Bayou Corne, La., that year.

The findings suggest such radar data, if collected routinely from airborne systems or satellites, could at least in some cases foresee sinkholes before they happen, decreasing danger to people and property.

Salon 615: An Open Letter to Lyle Lovett…

 

Sandee Gertz - Author/WriterNashville, TN – An Open Love Letter to Lyle Lovett…

Sandee Gertz

Dear Lyle,

First off, I want to apologize for never really knowing you for the last 20 years.  I’m sorry about seeing your image way back in the 80’s and only associating it with the man who married Julia Roberts.  All I could think of at the time was “that hair!”  I didn’t understand the marriage—or the music—but that was because, sadly, I had never given it a try. (The music that is.)

Salon 615: A Downtown Nashville Christmas

 

Sandee Gertz - Author/Writer Nashville, TN – I said I’d be hip. I promised writing about culture and clubs; poetry and songwriters, and maybe even turn you on to the latest dive bar I’ve visited or a hidden-away café full of charm.  But then while I wasn’t looking, lights and wreaths went up on Church Street, 2nd Avenue took on an even more twinkly golden glow, and Printers Alley became bejeweled with lights and blown-up Santas.

Since we last met here, we were catapulted headlong into the Christmas season. And we all know Christmas isn’t hip. «Read the rest of this article»
