Thank you Lynn for your mention of this terribly sad news. We are losing so many of our continent's beautiful animals :(


Your welcome, and very sad news. :( It's not just me, it's the entire nation that is outraged.

U.S. intelligence assessment focuses on cockpit activities of MH370

(CNN)A preliminary assessment by U.S. intelligence agencies, produced in the wake of the MH370 disaster, suggested it was likely someone in the cockpit deliberately caused the aircraft's movements to go off course before the Malaysian airliner disappeared.

Two U.S. officials briefed on the matter said the assessment, which was not intended for public release, was prepared months ago and was solely based on available satellite and other evidence, and not based on more detailed findings by investigators. Another government official said the assessment is the most current view of U.S. officials based on what is known so far about the plane's fate.

If it is from a 777, I don't think any others are missing a flaperon so it has to be MH370's. Unfortunately, one part isn't going to tell us anything about why. Likely the only part that can address that is the cockpit voice recorder. The what, when, where, how answers will come from the flight data recorder. We already know who was on board.


I agree with you Gary. Might be long time till they get to black boxes.

Planets we will never get to visit.

NASA's Spitzer Confirms Closest Rocky Exoplanet

Using NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, astronomers have confirmed the discovery of the nearest rocky planet outside our solar system, larger than Earth and a potential gold mine of science data.

Dubbed HD 219134b, this exoplanet, which orbits too close to its star to sustain life, is a mere 21 light-years away. While the planet itself can't be seen directly, even by telescopes, the star it orbits is visible to the naked eye in dark skies in the Cassiopeia constellation, near the North Star.

HD 219134b is also the closest exoplanet to Earth to be detected transiting, or crossing in front of, its star and, therefore, perfect for extensive research.

Lion Killer.
He killed Cecil the Lion. :-(((((

After Cecil the Lion’s Killing, U.S. and U.N. Look to Take Action

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said on Thursday that it was investigating the circumstances surrounding the killing of Cecil, a lion that is thought to have been lured out of its protected habitat in Zimbabwe this month and killed by Walter J. Palmer, an American dentist and hunter.

MH370: Wreckage found on Reunion Island ‘very likely from a Boeing 777’

THE discovery of what looks to be the first piece of debris from the missing MH370 is the strongest indication yet the $180 million search for the plane is being conducted in the right place.

The aircraft flaperon, identical to that of a Boeing 777, was found on a beach of Reunion Island more than 6000km west of Perth and will be sent to France for investigation.

Oceanographers and other experts said the discovery was “absolutely consistent” with drift modelling based around MH370’s likely resting place in the southern Indian Ocean.

A suitcase has also washed ashore at the same location as the aircraft flaperon but as yet there is no confirmation the suitcase is linked to the earlier debris.

Brown Dwarf.

Astronomers find aurora a million times brighter than the northern lights

The sky above a failed star in a distant constellation shimmers with a beautiful green and yellow aurora one million times brighter than the northern lights. The spectacular light show is the first confirmed aurora on a body outside the solar system, and the most powerful ever recorded.

Astronomers detected the celestial display when they trained some of the world’s most sensitive telescopes on a brown dwarf that lies 18 light years away in the constellation of Lyra. The aurora’s colourful streaks wave green and yellow when oxygen and sodium are battered by electrons in the brown dwarf’s atmosphere. The brightest light the telescopes picked up was from hydrogen, which glow redder than the eye can see.

Debris found in the Indian Ocean appears to be part of a Boeing 777, the type of airliner flown by Malaysia Airlines that disappeared in 2014, a source says.

Ebola: 'Isn't that over yet?'

The short answer is no, but there is a lot more to it than that.

The outbreak has been "nearly over" for months. So while "Ebola fatigue" is understandable, it's also potentially extremely dangerous.

There are still around 20-30 new cases a week in the three worst-affected countries.

Before this outbreak, those numbers would have constituted a major epidemic, but we live in very changed times.

At the height of the outbreak, West Africa was seeing hundreds of new infections a week.

Stay tuned.

Debris in Indian Ocean checked for MH370 ties

(CNN)Apparent airplane debris found off the coast of Reunion island, a French department in the western Indian Ocean, is being examined to see if it is connected to the 2014 disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, a member of the French Air Force in Reunion said Wednesday.
