Antarctic Ice Flow

NASA said Rignot and UC Irvine scientists Jeremie Mouginot and Bernd Scheuchl used billions of data points captured by European, Japanese and Canadian satellites to weed out cloud cover, solar glare and land features masking the feather hair extensions glaciers.

With the help of NASA technology, the team took the time to pieced together the shape and velocity of glacial formations, including the previously uncharted East Antarctica, which makes up 77 percent of the continent.The scientists were surprised when they step back and glanced at the full picture, as they discovered a new ridge splitting the 5.4 million-square-mile (14 million-square-kilometer) landmass from east to west.

NASA-funded researchers created the first complete map of the speed and direction of ice flow in Antarctica, showing glaciers flowing thousands of miles from the continent's deep interior to its coast.This map, NASA said, will be critical for tracking peacock feather hair extensions future sea-level increases from climate change. The team created it by using integrated radar observations from a consortium of international satellites.

The team also found unnamed formations moving up to 800 feet (244 meters) annually across immense plains sloping toward the Antarctic Ocean and in a different manner than past models of ice migration, NASA said."The map points out something fundamentally new: that ice moves by slipping along the ground it rests on," said Thomas Wagner, NASA's cryospheric program scientist in Washington, in a statement. "That's critical knowledge for predicting future sea level rise. It means that if we lose ice at the coasts from the warming ocean, we open the tap to massive amounts of ice in the interior."

"This is like seeing a map of all the oceans' currents for the first time. It's a game changer for glaciology," said Eric Rignot of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.,in a statement.Rignot, who is also from University of California (UC), Irvine, is lead author of a paper on the ice flow published online Thursday in Science Express.We are seeing amazing flows from the heart of the feather hair extensions continent that had never been described before," he added.

Cocoa Beach gained an influx of highly educated engineers

"Everyone is starting to feel the pinch. People are not working. They're economizing," said Donna Thrash, who runs a jobs workshop for space workers at Brevard Workforce, the county's career center. "Every launch, this area is full of people and everyone benefits from that. Once that's gone, it's going to really hit people that that isn't coming anymore."The Space Coast had years to prepare for the end of the space feather hair extensions shuttle. But the announcement in 2004 occurred in a different era — a time when Florida's unemployment rate was 3.5 percent, the housing boom was fueling construction growth and the Space Coast had the highest property values in central Florida. Now, unemployment is at 10.6 percent, growth has disappeared and for-sale signs dot neighborhoods. The space program has a hold on the area that goes beyond jobs and strikes at the identity of this region stretching along Florida's central Atlantic Coast. This was a sleepy coastal area known for citrus and resort hotels before it was picked in the late 1950s to be the site for the United States' blasts into the space age.With the launches of Saturn rockets, the communities of Titusville, Cape Canaveral, Merritt Island and Cocoa Beach gained an influx of highly educated engineers, project managers and technicians, and aerospace became the Space Coast's dominant industry. Even the area code is 3-2-1. Elementary schools are named for the shuttles and there's Astronaut High School and Satellite High School. Locals ate at the Moon Hut restaurant before it closed, and visitors can sleep in a bed feather hair extensions wholesale shaped like a space shuttle at the Best Western Space Shuttle Inn in Titusville.Restaurants and businesses already are feeling the belt-tightening as residents stay home to save money. After July, it will be a long while before hotels are booked up like they usually are for shuttle launches. Hundreds of thousands of spectators pour into Brevard County, which ordinarily is home to a half million residents.

journalists covering Gaza flotilla

The Foreign Press Association, which had criticized the threats made to journalists, applauded Israel's decision."We are pleased to see that Israel has recognized the value of allowing reporters to cover an important long feather earrings news event and understands that journalists should be treated differently from political activists," the association said Monday in a statement. "We urge the government to continue to do its utmost to promote freedom of the press as core values of a democratic society." Several dozen journalists are registered to take part in the flotilla, which is expected to approach Gaza later this week after the ships meet up in the Mediterranean. One of the journalists is Haaretz columnist and reporter Amira Haas, who in a column published Sunday wrote about her preparations to participate on board a ship filled with Canadian activists.American participants in the flotilla have been warned that feathers hair extensions participation could be a violation of U.S. law. Oren Helman, the director of Israel's Government Press Office, in a letter Sunday to the foreign press threatened the 10-year ban, as well as the impounding of equipment and additional sanctions."I implore you to avoid taking part in this provocative and dangerous event, the purpose of which is to undermine Israel's right to defend itself and to knowingly violate Israeli law," he wrote.Helman urged the reporters to "Please pass along the contents of this letter to your editorial boards around the world." He also said the Israeli government has instructed its military not to allow the flotilla to reach its goal. Israel has dropped the threat of a ban against journalists who participate in the Gaza flotilla.Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday ordered Israeli authorities to formulate a special procedure for journalists who are arrested on board the flotilla, which is trying to evade the country's maritime blockade of the coastal strip.The order came a day after the head of Israel's Government Press Office had threatened to deny entry to the country for 10 years to any journalist who participates in the flotilla. Netanyahu said in a statement that the policy for journalists covering the flotilla should not be the same as against infiltrators and those who enter Israel illegally.Members of the Israeli media and international wholesale hair extensions journalists will be embedded in Israeli Navy vessels in contact with the flotilla "in order to create transparency and credible coverage of the events," said a statement issued Monday from the Prime Minister's Office.

Jeff Buckley's life

He falls for a young woman working at the concert, and comes to understand his father. Meanwhile, the concert sets the singer on the road to stardom. Buckley drowned in 1997, aged 30. He released one studio album during his american golf uk lifetime, "Grace," which featured a cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah.""To play a man who was singularly gifted as an artist, greatly misunderstood & mythologized as a human being ... It's something very special and sacred. I'm going to give all I can to this project," Badgley, 24, said in a statement. The film will start shooting in August in New York City. Dan Algrant ("People I Know") will direct the independent project from a script that he co-wrote. The roles of Tim Buckley and the girlfriend have not been cast yet."Greetings From Tim Buckley" is being produced with the authorization of Tim Buckley's estate.

but neither is the guy

Weekly news quiz for June 13-17, 2011The key is to focus not on the president but on the spouse. That brings you to the youngest first lady in US history, who was 21 when she assumed the role. Twenty-one! She was serving as America's hostess at an age when many modern presidential kids hadn't yet figured out what to do with their lives. But by all accounts Frances Cleveland did a pretty good discount callaway diablo edge job in her difficult role. Yes, Grover Cleveland is our man. He was a bachelor when he won the White House in 1884. He married Frances Folsom, the daughter of an old friend, in the Blue Room on June 2, 1886.Cleveland lost to Benjamin Harrison in 1888. He won his old job back in 1892. Grover and "Frankie" had one daughter while he was between White House terms. Then on Sept. 9, 1893, they welcomed a second daughter, Esther. She remains the only child born in the actual executive mansion. Some historical accounts claim that in those pre-TMZ days the first couple hadn't bothered to publicly announce the pregnancy, and the birth took the nation by surprise. There's been only one. Hint: An upscale Washington, D.C., neighborhood is named after this particular chief executive. In fact, it's where Malia Obama goes to school.Hmm. This is tough trivia. You'd guess that this president would have to have been young, like John F. Kennedy or Theodore Roosevelt. Those would be good choices – both had toddlers when they moved into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue – but neither is the guy. Other children followed, but all were born elsewhere, or after Cleveland left office.The neighborhood? Oh, right – Cleveland Park is a tony enclave of big old homes in D.C.'s northwest quadrant. It got its name because Cleveland bought homes there that he used as refuges from downtown's stress and heat.The Obama girls go to Sidwell Friends, a Quaker private establishment whose middle and upper schools are on the edge of Cleveland Park. President Obama says nobody's going to hear the american golf uk pitter-patter of little feet in the White House residence while he lives there – unless the feet belong to visitors, that is. The Obamas themselves don't plan to have any more children. That's what America's "first dad" told an ABC interviewer on Friday, anyway. Which leads us to ask this question: Which US president did welcome the birth of a child in the White House?

No huge favorites

Back to defend: Time does fly. Graeme McDowell can attest to that.The 12 months as the U.S. Open taylormade r9 on salechampion has been a lot of fun, and it's been busy. It's just flown by," McDowell said Tuesday. "I can't believe I'm sitting in here again at the USGA Media Center. It's crazy that it's gone by as quickly as it has. I certainly tried to savor it and enjoy it as much as I could."

The 2010 U.S. Open champion from Northern Ireland closes out a year of superlatives, that only started with his major title, as he defends his title at Congressional Country Club. "Can I ever top 2010?" McDowell said Tuesday. "I probably can't top the way it felt to win my first major championship, to hole the winning putt at the Ryder Cup … to win two or three other times outside of that. I probably can't top that feeling. "Defending a U.S. Open title is no easy feat. It has't been done since Curtis Strange won back to back in 1988-89. McDowell doesn't seem concerned about that stat, or the expected glare.

Kaymer said almost anyone can win, young, old, lefty or righty, starting with Phil Mickelson, a four-time major champ and a record five-time U.S. Open runner-up. Or the top two players in the world, No. 1 Luke Donald and No. 2 Lee Westwood, each chasing their first major. No. 4 Steve Stricker, who won this year's Memorial, can break his major maiden on the strength of his short game. Three-time major winner Ernie Els, in 1997, won the last time Congressional hosted the U.S. Open.And the list goes on.

As players descended this taylormade r11 driver 2011 week on historic Congressional Country Club some 10 miles north of the White House, a prohibiitive favorite to win the 111th edition of the national championship wasn't among them. Don't expect a late arriving favorite to pop up, either.With the dominance of Tiger Woods and his 14 major titles a fading memory, and with the former world No. 1 tending to multiple leg injuries in his Florida home, the second major championship of the season figures to have contenders from all corners. Reigning PGA Championship winner Martin Kaymer thinks 30-40 players are viable contenders. Consider:

10 players have won the last 10 majors."With Tiger not being dominant, others stepped up," defending champion Graeme McDowell said. "It was getting pretty tough to win major championships when he was playing the way he was.And I think the 21st Century golfer is a lot more ready for the PGA Tour, the younger players are so much more ready for the Tour when they come out. They play professional events, they know how to win, and they're not scared anymore."

Kaymer is No. 3 in the world and already has PGA Championship hardware. K.J. Choi won The Players Championship this year and won the 2007 AT&T National at Congressional. Anthony Kim won the 2008 AT&T National at Congressional. Sergio Garcia won the 2005 Booz Allen Classic at Congressional. And Matt Kuchar, Dustin Johnson, Paul Casey, Rory McIlroy, Ian Poulter, two-time 2011 Tour winner Bubba Watson, Hunter Mahan, Nick Watney and Charl Schwartzel, the only player who can win the Grand Slam this year after winning the Masters, all have legitimate shots.

" American golf uk Golf is in such a good position at the moment because it's so volatile you can get a different winner every week," said Westwood, who has four top-3s in his last six starts in majors. "It is part of the challenge of the game at the moment, I think. But if I could pick out a favorite, I'd be working for (European betting parlor) Paddy Power."

"It's bizarre because if anything I feel like the glare is off me this week," he said. "I feel like — defending titles is a strange psyche because, I mean, I've got nothing to defend this week. I'm level par Thursday morning the same as everyone else. I'm just one of the guys trying to win it."After some spring struggles — three missed cuts in five PGA Tour events, including the Masters — McDowell believes he is finding some answers."I've really got to reset my goals and realize that consistent golf is what it's all about, and you don't have to win every week to be a top player," he said.
