This explains some strange things that I thought I was perhaps imagining.  :o ::)

In case you needed another reason for doing OW...  :'(

 :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( It beggars belief that one inhabitant of a planet can eradicate the rest.

My latest sailing magazine had a great article about 'Just Nuisance' a Royal Navy Dog.

Caro was kind enough to put it on her Google Drive at: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_HS6UI83kHzZDJOZG5rTEcwVjg   ;)

That was a very interesting article Dean. I understand the pleasure of telling the story of Just Nuisance, but also the harsh reality of the lives of the black community in South Africa. The differences between the two must still leave a bitter taste. Let's hope that time, truth, and reconciliation do the trick  8)

London Marathoner who sacrificed for fellow runner hailed for 'ultimate sportsmanship'

In case anyone else cannot access the Washington Post version here, this works in the UK

Hurrah for 1547!  :D :D :D  That's the real spirit of sport isn't it?

All That We Share

hanibal I'm so sorry that I didn't see this first time around!  Certain leaders of large transatlantic countries might need a copy too?

It's a great idea, a great lesson, and very very uplifting :D :D :D

Old Weather and Zooniverse News / Re: Old Weather In The News

I was just watching the weekly science program on the French CBC TV channel  and there was a short segment on citizen science by Julie Peyette, one of our Canadian astronauts. After describing several field projects, such as gathering information on Monarch butterflies, she introduced Zooniverse and focused on Old Weather long enough to see a log page. It was a nice surprise. 

Have a look at Julie Peyette's impressive bio: https://www.jsc.nasa.gov/Bios/htmlbios/payette.html

Well blow me down - what a gal!  :o :o ;D
If she applies to join the forum I'll say 'yes' :D

The Scream (1892), by Edvard Munch, depicts a figure holding its face, which is making an agonised expression.
But look above this individual and the sky is full of colourful wavy lines.
The researchers say these are probably Mother of Pearl [Nacreous] Clouds - rare phenomena that would have had a big impact on anyone who saw them for the first time.

I'd be amazed - though that's the face I'd put on if I walked out and found myself under mammatus clouds which look like they might well fall on your head.  ;D

Read it - oh boy what a mess up we've made of this planet. Perhaps the only solution is less of us?  :-[

I plan to kick off at some point. Every little bit helps  ;D

Contributing to the planet by removing yourself from it?  ;D
I'm gonna find other ways, since I have a lot of years left to live...

I think it's more a case of the planet deciding that you have become more ancient than your days  ;D
