We have seen a brick thrown through window of a Jewish-owned business in Manhattan, a swastika carved into the door of a synagogue in Salt Lake City, families threatened outside a restaurant in Los Angeles, and museums in Florida and Alaska, dedicated to celebrating Jewish life and culture and remembering the Holocaust, vandalized with anti-Jewish messages.

NASA’s ECOSTRESS observes Apple Fire in California from Space

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – NASA’s Ecosystem Spaceborne Thermal Radiometer Experiment on International Space Station (ECOSTRESS) captured a birds-eye view of the vast Apple fire raging in Southern California.

The wildfire began on the evening of Friday, July 31st, after two smaller fires merged and rapidly grew in the hot conditions in Riverside County, east of Los Angeles, prompting the evacuation of thousands of residents. Air temperatures have soared past 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius), stressing the vegetation and turning the area into a tinderbox. By Monday, the wildfire had exploded to over 26,000 acres.

Senator Marsha Blackburn, Rep. Jerrold Nadler Lead Bipartisan Effort to Modernize Music Copyright Law, Empower Musicians

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – On Thursday, November 21st, 2019, U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) introduced the Ask Musicians for Music Act (AM-FM) to modernize existing copyright law for radio stations and musicians. Under the current patchwork copyright system, radio stations can use sound recordings over their airwaves while creators, who own a stake in sound recordings, receive no payment in return.

The AM-FM Act would require all radio services to pay fair market value for the music they use, putting music owners and the creative community on the same level as other American workers. Musicians hail from all 50 states, not just music meccas like Nashville, Austin, Los Angeles, or New York City.

NASA uses ALOS-2 satellite to Map aftermath of Earthquakes in California

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – NASA says the damage from two strong Southern California earthquakes that occurred on July 4th and July 5th, 2019 can be seen from space. The earthquakes were- a magnitude 6.4 and a magnitude 7.1, respectively.

The epicenter of the quakes was near the city of Ridgecrest, about 150 miles (241 kilometers) northeast of Los Angeles. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the 7.1 quake was one of the largest to hit the region in some 40 years.

NASA's Advanced Rapid Imaging and Analysis (ARIA) team created this co-seismic Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) map, which shows surface displacement caused by the recent major earthquakes in Southern California, including the magnitude 6.4 and the magnitude 7.1 events on July 4 and July 5, 2019, respectively.

NASA maps California Fires to help agencies on the ground

 

NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – For the past two weeks NASA scientists and satellite data analysts have been working every day producing maps and damage assessments that can be used by disaster managers battling the Woolsey Fire near Los Angeles and the Camp Fire in Northern California.

The agency-wide effort also deployed a research aircraft over the Woolsey Fire on November 15th to identify burned areas at risk of mudslides in advance of winter rains expected in the area.

Spearheaded by NASA’s Disasters Program in the Earth Science Division, the team produces a variety of data products largely derived from satellite observations, including maps showing the locations of active fires, damage caused by fires, and burned areas that are susceptible to landslides and mudslides.
