Ravensthorpe WA Western Australia
Ravensthorpe, Western Australia From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Western Australia Population: 438 (2006 census) Postcode: 6346 Elevation: 232 m (761 ft) Location: 541 km (336 mi) ESE of Perth 50 km (31 mi) NNW of Hopetoun LGA: Shire of Ravensthorpe State District: Eyre Federal Division: O'Connor Mean Max Temp Mean Min Temp Annual Rainfall 22.7 °C 73 °F 10.4 °C 51 °F 425.3 mm 16.7 in Ravensthorpe is a town 541 km south east of Perth, 40 km inland from the south coast of Western Australia. [edit] Overview In 1848, the area was surveyed by Surveyor General John Septimus Roe who named many of the geographical features nearby, including the nearby Ravensthorpe Range that the town is named after. The area was first settled by the Dunn brothers during the 1868.[1] The Dunn brothers brought sheep farming to the area in 1871 when George and John Dunn drove a herd from Albany to the area they had established earlier. They were awarded a land grant in 1873 of 4049 ha.[2] Another of the Dunn brothers, James Dunn discovered gold at Annabel creek and was awarded a claim by the government. More profitable discoveries followed in 1900 that resulted in a boom. The population climbed to over 1000 and by 1901 the government gazetted the town of Ravensthorpe.[3] The government completed construction of a copper and gold smelter about 2km south east of the town in 1906, used to cast copper and gold ingots. At its peak of production the smelter employed over 120 men, the now disused smelter is still there and is surrounded by massive piles of tailings waste. The area continued to prosper and the population grew accordingly, by 1909 the population was over 3000. The prosperity was short-lived; World War I took its toll on the town and by 1918 the local copper smelter had closed and many of the copper and gold mines had closed. There was also one of the Western Australian Government Railways isolated branch lines between Hopetoun and Ravensthorpe. After the war Ravensthorpe survived servicing the farming in the district. Agriculture in the area began to grow following the great depression and pastoral land releases occurred in the 1960s and 1970s. BHP Billiton commenced a feasibility study in 2002 into opening a nickel and cobalt mine and processing plant[4] 35 km East of the town[5] The project was approved in 2004 and construction commenced shortly afterward. The plant known as the Ravensthorpe Nickel Project was commissioned in late 2007 with first production occurring in October and the first 5000 tonnes being produced by December 2007.[6] The plant was officially opened in 2008.[7] In January 2009, BHP Billiton announced that it was suspending production at the Ravensthorpe nickel mine indefinitely, due the reduction in world nickel prices caused by the global economic crisis. The decision cut 1,800 jobs and is expected to have a major impact on the local economy.[8]

They discover a way to filter salt and lithium from water, through a new membrane
Science advances and is now able to filter the sea water in a sustainable manner thanks to the invention of a new membrane that ensures greater sustainability and filtering of minerals. So far, lithium is one of the most common minerals in the entire planet, and although it may seem complicated, it can also be extracted from seawater, which ensures its presence for thousands of years. Thanks to the invention of a new membrane for filtering sea water, it is possible not only to filter lithium from water, but also to produce drinking water. It is difficult to extract minerals from seawater without contaminants because of their difficulty in separating them in the process, and one of them would be lithium. But American and Australian scientists have invented a new technique of desalination of sea water that not only turns water into drinking water, but also is able to separate minerals present in it. The protagonist of this new technique are the so-called metal-organic structures (MOF) that have a large internal surface area. Thanks to the MOF membranes, it is able to dehydrate specific ions as they pass. Thanks to this, it is possible to eliminate salt water ions in a more efficient way in terms of energy and sustainability. The current membranes have pores that allow the passage of water molecules, but small so that the rest of the contaminants do not pass the process.

Ganalanga Mindibirrina "Home of the Waanyi Garawa people"
The Ganalanga-Mindibirrina Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) was declared on 29 June 2015 with a ceremony held at Wallace Creek on 29 June 2016. Hear from the Waanyi and Garawa people on what the Ganalanga Mindibirrina Indigenous Protected Area means to them. The Ganalanga-Mindibirrina IPA encompasses the Waanyi-Garawa Aboriginal Land Trust, a highly remote area of more than 1 million hectares of the Northern Territory’s southern Gulf. It's about 180km South-East of Borroloola and about 90km West of Doomadgee, Queensland. Indigenous Protected Areas (IPAs) are voluntarily dedicated by Indigenous groups on Indigenous owned or managed land or sea country. Their declaration means they are now recognised by Government as an important part of the National Reserve System.

Gold Rush: Massive Gold Veins - Documentary Films
In geology, a vein is a distinct sheetlike body of crystallized minerals within a rock. Veins form when mineral constituents carried by an aqueous solution within the rock mass are deposited through precipitation. The hydraulic flow involved is usually due to hydrothermal circulation. Veins are classically thought of as being the result of growth of crystals on the walls of planar fractures in rocks, with the crystal growth occurring normal to the walls of the cavity, and the crystal protruding into open space. This certainly is the method for the formation of some veins. However, it is rare in geology for significant open space to remain open in large volumes of rock, especially several kilometers below the surface. Thus, there are two main mechanisms considered likely for the formation of veins: open-space filling and crack-seal growth.

Outback, Northern Territory, Australia, Oceania
The Outback is the vast, remote, arid area of Australia. The term "the outback" is generally used to refer to locations that are comparatively more remote than those areas named "the bush" which, colloquially, can refer to any lands outside the main urban areas. Early European exploration of inland Australia was sporadic. More focus was on the more accessible and fertile coastal areas. The first party to successfully cross the Blue Mountains just outside Sydney was led by Gregory Blaxland in 1813, 25 years after the colony was established. People starting with John Oxley in 1817, 1818 and 1821, followed by Charles Sturt in 1829–1830 attempted to follow the westward-flowing rivers to find an "inland sea", but these were found to all flow into the Murray River and Darling River which turn south. Over the period 1858 to 1861, John McDouall Stuart led six expeditions north from Adelaide into the outback, culminating in successfully reaching the north coast of Australia and returning, without the loss of any of the party's members' lives. This contrasts with the ill-fated Burke and Wills expedition in 1860–61 which was much better funded, but resulted in the deaths of three of the members of the transcontinental party. The Overland Telegraph line was constructed in the 1870s along the route identified by Stuart. Exploration of the outback continued in the 1950s when Len Beadell explored, surveyed and built many roads in support of the nuclear weapons tests at Emu Field and Maralinga and rocket testing on the Woomera Prohibited Area. Mineral exploration continues as new mineral deposits are identified and developed. While the early explorers used horses to cross the outback, the first woman to make the journey riding a horse was Anna Hingley, who rode from Broome to Cairns in 2006. Other than agriculture and tourism, the main economic activity in this vast and sparsely settled area is mining. Owing to the complete absence of mountain building and glaciation since the Permian (in many areas since the Cambrian) ages, the outback is extremely rich in iron, aluminium, manganese and uranium ores, and also contains major deposits of gold, nickel, iron, lead and zinc ores. Because of its size, the value of grazing and mining is considerable. Major mines and mining areas in the outback include opals at Coober Pedy, Lightning Ridge and White Cliffs, metals at Broken Hill, Tennant Creek, Olympic Dam and the remote Challenger Mine. Oil and gas are extracted in the Cooper Basin around Moomba. In Western Australia the Argyle diamond mine in the Kimberley (Western Australia) is the world's biggest producer of natural diamonds and contributes approximately one-third of the world's natural supply. The Pilbara region's economy is dominated by mining and petroleum industries. Most of Australia's iron ore is also mined in the Pilbara and it also has one of the world's major manganese mines. Because of the low and erratic rainfall over most of the outback, combined with soils which are usually not very fertile, inland Australia is relatively sparsely settled. More than 90 percent of Australians live in urban areas on the coast. However the outback and the history of its exploration and settlement provides Australians with a culturally valued backdrop, and stories of swagmen, squatters, and bushrangers are central to the national ethos. The song "Waltzing Matilda", which is about a swagman and squatters, is probably Australia's best internationally known and best-loved song. Aboriginal communities in outback regions have not been displaced as they have been in areas of intensive agriculture and large cities, in coastal areas. For this reason a significant proportion of Australia's indigenous population lives in the Outback, in areas such as the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara lands in northern South Australia. The total population of the Outback in Australia declined from 700,000 in 1996 to 690,000 in 2006. Largest decline was noted in Outback NT, while Kimberley and Pilbara showed population increase during the same period. The sex ratio is 1040 males for 1000 females and 17% of the total population is indigenous. The Royal Flying Doctor Service started service in 1928 and helps people who live in the outback of Australia. In former times, serious injuries or illnesses often meant death due to the lack of proper medical facilities and trained personnel. In most outback communities, the number of children is too small for a conventional school to operate. Children are educated at home by the School of the Air. Originally the teachers communicated with the children via radio, but now satellite telecommunication is used instead.

Cairns , beautiful city in Australia, east coast of Far North Queensland, hotels ,resorts,
Cairns (pronounced /ˈkæːnz/ (About this sound listen)[5][Note 1]) is a city in the Cairns Region, Queensland, Australia.[6] It is on the east coast of Far North Queensland. The city is the 5th-most-populous in Queensland and ranks 14th overall in Australia. Cairns was founded in 1876 and named after William Wellington Cairns, Governor of Queensland from 1875 to 1877. It was formed to serve miners heading for the Hodgkinson River goldfield, but declined when an easier route was discovered from Port Douglas. It later developed into a railhead and major port for exporting sugar cane, gold and other metals, minerals and agricultural products from surrounding coastal areas and the Atherton Tableland region. The estimated residential population of the Cairns urban area in 2015 was 147,993.[1] Based on 2015 data, the associated local government area has experienced an average annual growth rate of 2.3% over the last 10 years.[7] Cairns is a popular tourist destination because of its tropical climate and access to the Great Barrier Reef, one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

Welcome to Australia- Australia Travel Guide
Some facts about Australia https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDagSNXrEFs In land area, Australia is estimated to be 7,692,024 square Kilometers and the sixth largest nation after Russia, Canada, China, the United States of America and Brazil. It has, however, a relatively small population. Australia is the only nation to govern an entire continent and its outlying islands. The mainland is the largest island and the smallest, flattest continent on Earth. It lies between 10° and 39° South latitude. The highest point on the mainland, Mount Kosciuszko, is only 2,228 metres. Australia is the driest inhabited continent on earth. Its interior has one of the lowest rainfalls in the world and about three-quarters of the land is arid or semi-arid. Its fertile areas are well-watered, however, and these are used very effectively to help feed the world. Sheep and cattle graze in dry country, but care must be taken with the soil. Some grazing land became desert when the long cycles that influence rainfall in Australia turned to drought. The Australian federation consists of six States and two Territories. Most inland borders follow lines of longitude and latitude. The largest State, Western Australia, is about the same size as Western Europe. Economy Australia has a developed modern market economy and has had one of the most outstanding economies of the world in recent years with high-growth, low-inflation and low interest rates. Over the past decade, inflation has typically been 2–3% and the base interest rate 5–6%. There is an efficient government sector, a flexible labour market and a very competitive business sector. Since 1992 Australia has averaged greater than 3 per cent economic growth and recorded over 17 consecutive years. This economic stability places Australia in the top echelon of developed countries in terms of sustained rates of growth. The Australian economy is dominated by its service sector, representing 68% of Australian GDP. The agricultural and mining sectors account for 57% of the nation’s exports. With its abundant physical resources, Australia has enjoyed a high standard of living since the nineteenth century. Australia is a major exporter of agricultural products, particularly wheat and wool, minerals such as iron-ore and gold, and energy in the forms of liquified natural gas and coal. It has made a comparatively large investment in social infrastructure, including education, training, health and transport. According to the Reserve Bank of Australia, Australian per capita GDP growth is higher than that of New Zealand, US, Canada and The Netherlands. The past performance of the Australian economy has been heavily influenced by US, Japanese and Chinese economic growth. Immigration Australia’s culturally diverse society includes its Indigenous peoples who arrived more than 50,000 years ago, and settlers from countries all around the world. Immigration is an important feature of Australian society. Since 1945, over six million people from 200 countries have come to Australia as new settlers. Migrants have made a major contribution to shaping modern Australia. People born overseas make up almost one quarter of the total population. The federal government sets immigration intake numbers on a yearly basis. Australia’s immigration policies are non-discriminatory and all applicants to migrate must meet the same selection criteria. In recent years the mandatory detention of unauthorised arrivals with the intention of applying for refugee status (asylum seekers) by boat has generated great levels of controversy. Mandatory detention laws were introduced in Australia by the Keating Labor government, with bipartisan support, in 1992. The legislation was proposed as a result of an influx of Vietnamese, Chinese, and Cambodian refugees over the previous few years.

14 Worst Natural Disasters of 2015 News 2017
14 Worst Natural Disasters of 2015 News 2017 14 Worst Natural Disasters of 2015 News 2017 14 Worst Natural Disasters of 2015 News 2017 It wasn't a good year for 2015 as far as natural disasters go with terrible floods in Texas and Oklahoma and the Australian wildfires. Subscribe to Talltanic 7. The Wildfires in the Western U.S. It was last summer when the drought in California combined with the dry weather to create massive fires that blazed through the northern area of the state all the way to Montana. It was reported that more than 70 vast fires in total had scorched the land and claimed the lives of three firefighters in central Washington state while they were battling a fire after their car had crashed. 9,000 homes were also left without power in the city of Chelan, Washington when utility poles were burned down and it was then that Jerry Brown, the governor of California, had issued a state of emergency in certain counties, forcing thousands of people to evacuate. 6. The Earthquake in Chile On the day of Sept. 16, an 8.3 magnitude earthquake struck and killed 11 people in central Chile and then triggered tsunami warnings as far off as California and Hawaii. It was reported that as many as one million people evacuated their homes and waves that were up to 4.5 meters high began to slam into Chile's port city of Coquimbo. Many people were relieved that this event was not as horrific as the 8.8 magnitude earthquake that killed around 500 people in Chile back in 2010. 5.Cyclone Pam Winds that reached up to 270 kilometers an hour ripped through the 65-island South Pacific archipelago, that is home to about 267,000 people. One of the more heavily damaged places was the capital, Port Vila, where 47,000 people live. The wreckage proved to be even worse on the outer island of Tanna. It’s here that the Australian military guessed about 80 percent of the structures and buildings had been flattened, along with the airport and the local hospital. The island’s location made it difficult for rescuers to get through because it was so remote and around 24 people throughout Vanuatu died. 4. Burma landslide During the middle of the night on Nov. 21, a landslide in Burma, also known as Myanmar, had managed to kill as many as 113 people when a mountain of dirt that was 60-metres high collapsed. The disaster happened in one of the mining communities in the northern part of the country that is rich with jade. Authorities claimed that at first they believe that mostly men who were digging through the mining scraps looking for jade were killed, but later stated that 70 huts that housed sleeping miners were buried in the late hours. 3. Super Typhoon Soudelor Strikes Better known as Typhoon Hanna, this tropical storm happened to be the second most intense tropical storm to form in the Northern Hemisphere since Typhoon Vongfong. Yes, that was its actual name. Soudelor managed to pave its way through the Pacific Ocean back in August, and the typhoon became the strongest storm of the year when the Japanese Meteorological Agency reported it reached a record low pressure of 900 millibars.Winds up to 100 mph blasted the island of Saipan and brought 50 inches of rain to Taiwan, along with deadly landslides. As many as 34 people were killed in Taiwan and China combined and another 100 people were presumed as missing. 2. The Malawi And Mozambique Floods The rainfall that occurred in the month of J anuary was above-normal which is what led to the devastating floods that rushed through Malawi and Mozambique.This then forced hundreds and hundreds of people to evacuate from their homes and killed nearly 200 people as reported by the World Vision team, who helped provide the victims with much need amenities. Families lost not just their homes, but their crops and livestock as well as bridges, roads, and water systems that had been destroyed or partially damaged. 1. The Nepal Earthquake On the day of April 25, an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.8 struck the city of Nepal. The sheer force of this natural disaster was enough to damage around 900,000 buildings, leaving around 1 million children out of school, and set off avalanches in the Mt. Everest that killed at least 19 people. More than 8,800 individuals lost their lives that day and the disaster was labeled as the deadliest in Nepal’s history Subscribe & More Videos: https://goo.gl/ztkgdN Thank for watching, Please Like Share And SUBSCRIBE!!! #terrible, #mostbrutalnaturaldisasters

Brendan Confaloniere Review -  Wave Rock & Esperance W.A.
Esperance is a town in the Goldfields-Esperance region of Western Australia, on the Southern Ocean coastline approximately 720 kilometres (450 mi) east-southeast of the state capital, Perth. Esperance is home to 9,919 people (2011 census). Its major industries are tourism, agriculture, and fishing. The Shire of Esperance is home to 13,477 people. European history of the region dates back to 1627 when the Dutch vessel Gulden Zeepaert, skippered by François Thijssen, passed through the blue waters off the Esperance coast.[citation needed] French explorers are credited with making the first landfall near the present day town, naming it and other local landmarks whilst sheltering from a storm in this area in 1792. The town itself was named after a French ship, the Espérance, commanded by Bruni d'Entrecasteaux. Espérance, is French for 'hope'. In 1802, British navigator Matthew Flinders sailed the Bay of Isles, discovering and naming places such as Lucky Bay and Thistle Cove. Whalers, sealers and pirates followed, as did pastoralists and miners, keen to exploit the free land and cash in on the gold boom in the gold fields to the north. The area of the Esperance townsite was first settled by the Dempsters, a pioneer family of Scottish descent, in the 1870s. A telegraph station was opened in 1876, although the formal gazettal of the townsite did not occur until 1893. The town jetty was also built through the 1890s, following the discovery of gold in the eastern goldfields region. The population of the town was 985 (623 males and 362 females) in 1898. The mallee area approximately 100 km north of the town began grain production in the 1920s, and by 1935 the construction of a second jetty, tankers jetty, was completed. Agriculture was introduced to the Esperance sand plain by an American syndicate, in partnership with the state government, in the 1960s following the discovery that adding superphosphate fertilisers containing trace elements to the poor soils made them suitable for cropping and pastoral activity. Despite early difficulties, the project eventually became a success and large areas of land were cleared during this time. In 1979, pieces of the space station Skylab crashed onto Esperance after the craft broke up over the Indian Ocean. The municipality fined the United States $400 for littering. The fine was paid in April 2009, when radio show host Scott Barley of Highway Radio raised the funds from his morning show listeners, and paid the fine on behalf of NASA.[12] Skylab's demise was an international media event, with merchandising, wagering on time and place of re-entry, and nightly news reports. The San Francisco Examiner offered a $10,000 prize for the first piece of Skylab to be delivered to their offices. 17-year-old Stan Thornton scooped a few pieces of Skylab off the roof of his home in Esperance, caught the first flight to San Francisco, and collected the prize. In January 2007, the national media claimed that Esperance experienced "the perfect storm" with wind gusts of up to 110 km/h (68 mph) which brought 155 mm (6 in) of rainfall within 24 hours, causing significant flooding. More than 100 homes were damaged, several boats were destroyed, trees were felled, 35 m of bridge on the South Coast Highway, (the main road linking Esperance to Perth), was washed away, and power was cut from thousands of homes. The Western Australian Government declared the area a "natural disaster zone". Over 25,000 sheep were killed in the storm. http://www.brendanconfalonierereview.com/
300 KM EAST OF PERTH NEAR MERREDIN LIES A 4000 HECTAR FARM PRODUCING WHEAT AND SHEEP. THE FARMER EXPLAINS SOME OF THE CHALLENGES OF FARMING; DROUGHT, FROST, HEAT, AND LOW WHEAT PRICES. WIKIPEDIA The Wheatbelt region is one of the nine regions of Western Australia. It partially surrounds the Perth metropolitan area, extending north from Perth to the Mid West region, and east to the Goldfields-Esperance region. It is bordered to the south by the South West and Great Southern regions, and to the west by the Indian Ocean, the Perth metropolitan area, and the Peel region. Altogether, it has an area of 154,862 square kilometres (59,793 sq mi) (including islands), and a population of about 72,000 people. The population is widely distributed, with only about 16,000 people living in the main towns of Northam, Narrogin, Merredin and Moora. The Wheatbelt encompasses a range of environments and industries. Near the coast, it receives relatively high rainfall and mild temperature, and its 150 kilometres (93 mi) of coastline is a significant tourist area. In contrast, the eastern fringe is very arid, and is mainly used for mining of minerals including gold, nickel and iron ore. The remainder to the region is highly suited to agriculture, and is the source of nearly two thirds of the state's wheat production, half of its wool production, and the majority of its Lamb and mutton, oranges, honey, cut flowers and a range of other agricultural and pastoral products.

Unlocking the Potential of Northern Australia–Dr Peter Stone–CSIRO
Dr Peter Stone of CSIRO on Unlocking the potential of Northern Australia at 2016 IWA World Water Congress and Exhibition, Brisbane, Australia. Dr. Peter Stone (http://people.csiro.au/S/P/Peter-Stone) is a Research Program Director at CSIRO, and leads CSIRO’s work on the development of Northern Australia. His presentation describes the work that CSIRO is currently undertaking to support increased development, particularly in the area of irrigated agriculture, in Northern Australia. Northern Australia covers an extensive land area, equivalent to approximately five times the size of France. 1.3 million people live in this area, and the GDP per capita is the highest in the world, thanks to the thriving mining and cattle industries. In Northern Australia, CSIRO has identified 16 million hectares of suitable irrigable soil, and there is enough water (after evaporation, which accounts for 90% of water loss following rainfall) to irrigate 1.5 million hectares. CSIRO has identified both where and how to irrigate following the identification of key drivers and impediments. CSIRO is now working to address the following key issues in order to develop a plan to fully realise the benefits for Northern Australia: land tenure, water resource plans, farm systems, profitability, and supply chains. CSIRO’s approach looks at the interlocking biophysical, regulatory, social, and financial considerations in order to reduce risks and improve opportunities for irrigated agriculture throughout Northern Australia.
Mother Load Gold Nuggets - Documentary Films
Mother Load Gold Nuggets - Documentary Films Nuggets are gold fragments weathered out of an original lode. They often show signs of abrasive polishing by stream action, and sometimes still contain inclusions of quartz or other lode matrix material. A 2007 study on Australian nuggets ruled out speculative theories of supergene formation via in-situ precipitation, cold welding of smaller particles, or bacterial concentration, since crystal structures of all of the nuggets examined proved they were originally formed at high temperature deep underground (i.e., they were of hypogene origin). Other precious metals such as platinum form nuggets in the same way. A later study of native gold from Arizona, US, based on lead isotopes indicates that a significant part of the mass in alluvial gold nuggets in this area formed within the placer environment.

History Lesson - Silver Treasure found on Metal Detecting
My story began almost 4 years ago when I purchased my first metal detector that I was dreaming about since I was a kid. Over the years I learned that this is more than a hobby and it is also my favorite workout and a way to travel into the past. I’m not doing this for treasure hunting but sometimes I do find interesting old artifacts. It was a cloudy day with light rainfall but that didn’t stopped us from our adventure so we started climbing. Hiking has some perks sometimes and one of those is that you can see and interact with the wildlife and that day we saw a lot of deer and squirrels and not to forget the birds that on this time of the year are very active. When we reached the top we found evidence of World War 2 activity, German trenches where were installed tents and where they stayed a few weeks before Russians arrived in the summer of 1944. I forgot to say that on that mountain side there is a forest road about 3 m wide that is used for wood extraction and also as a mountain bike track. This wasn’t the first time to be in the area we have been there many times and each time we found a few WW2 relics that are present in our videos, this time was the same we found a lot of pieces from explode German S-mines along the forest road. We do not scan the roads all the time because are full with beer and soda cans, meat cans, bottle caps and all sort of nowadays trash. But while we stopped to eat something on the right side of the road I was playing with my metal detector, testing ground balance and adjusting some of the settings. And while swinging the metal detector I had a high signal that on my Garrett AT PRO between 80 and 83 like most of aluminium trash and I was 100% that is a soda can. I almost decided not to dig but the my brother told me if I’m not digging he will :D so I started digging. After removing the first layer of soil I saw something grey but a little bit shiny on the edges this was the first object from that pit and it was a silver bracelet. It was a little bit bent and had some cracks due to it’s location on the road just where the tire of forest vehicles is going. All the pressure over the years affected the relic. After digging out the first objects I checked with my metal detector if there is any signal left and the signal was still strong and about the same value. Just under the bracelet were another two this time one broken into three pieces and one still intact, but that wasn’t all. About 20 cm away from the edge of the road again high signal that was the cherry on the cake, two beautiful “ring” necklaces also silver that were coiled for transportation and maybe lost on the road. After taking photos, saving GPS coordinates we called the authorities to tell them that we found something really old and we are about to prepare all the paperwork to pass all the relics to the archaeologists legally. We had a 72 h period to admire the relics, take photos and we also made a short video to show the treasure to the world by sharing it on the internet. In total were five pieces, two necklaces 40 and 60 g of silver and three bracelets 13, 14 and 16 g of silver in total about 145 g of silver. We cannot date these objects precisely but we think are about 1800-2000 years old and we are still waiting for the archaeologists answer for a more accurate dating. This treasure will be included on the list of National Heritage Goods of Romania and hopefully will be displayed on a local museum after classification and cleaning. This is not the only ancient relic to be found in the area because last year I found and old mirror about 1800 years old at about 3 km distance from recent finds and about 800 m altitude and maybe are linked but I will let the archaeologists to further investigate and decide if I’m right. I still can’t believe that I found such treasure, all by mistake and where archaeologists would never reach or do research diggings and I’m glad that I helped to enrich our National Heritage with such discovery. Maybe I entered into too many details but small things are important in order to do big things and I thank you for the support and for your attention, not the last thank you Garrett for reliable and high quality metal detectors that serve all over the world with great success stories.

Mapping resources that matter: Paul Bauman at TEDxCanmore
Talk Overview 90% of geophysicists in the world explore for oil and gas. Another 5% explore for mineral resources. And another 4.9% teach and regulate the previous 95%. In today's world, fluctuating commodity prices and mountainous stockpiles of recycled metals tell us that we have too much oil, uranium, coal, and iron ore. Today and in the foreseeable future, what the world is drastically scarce of is clean water, clean soil, and a common cultural legacy. Those remaining less than 0.1% of geophysicists not accounted for, above, are dedicated to developing techniques to explore for potable water, mapping soil salinization, demining previously productive agricultural land, and delineating subsurface remains of culturally rich sites threatened by development. With examples from Africa, Asia, Australia, and the Middle East, we can see how these non-destructive subsurface investigation techniques can radically improve life not only on a local and regional scale, but even on a continent wide scale. And where we are not using these approaches, we can envision how the development of access to clean water, clean soil, and mankind's cultural legacies can be greatly improved. Speaker Profile Paul Bauman is the Technical Director of the Geophysics group at WorleyParsons, in Calgary, where he has been working since 1990. He is one of the world experts on near surface applications of borehole and surface geophysical methods as applied to investigations in water resources, archaeology, soil science, geotechnical engineering, subsurface contamination, and geohazard identification. Paul has a B.Sc.E. in Geological Engineering from Princeton University, a Minor in Near Eastern Studies from Princeton, and an M.Sc. in Earth Sciences from the University of Waterloo. Paul has published widely in peer reviewed journals, scientific volumes, and conference proceedings. He has presented geophysical papers at over 100 conferences in an extraordinarily wide range of disciplines including geophysics, soil science, hydrogeology, disaster relief, archaeology, water resource development, contaminant hydrogeology, mining, mine waste management, heavy oil, shallow gas, salt water intrusion, salt water intrusion, etc. He has been an invited speaker at many educational, professional, and government institutions including Princeton University, Boston University, California State, the University of Pennsylvania, the National Water Authority in Yemen, the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, the Royal BC Museum, and the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre in Yellowknife. Aspects of his archaeogeophysical work have been the subject of a NOVA documentary (Ancient Refuge in the Holy Land), numerous radio and television interviews, a National Geographic movie entitled "Finding Atlantis," and numerous newspaper and magazine articles including in Time, National Geographic, and the Reader's Digest. Paul's work in the Cave of Letters and other sites is featured in the recently published popular books Secrets of the Cave of Letters: Rediscovering a Dead Sea Mystery; Digging Through the Bible: Modern Archaeology and the Ancient Bible; and Digging through History: Archaeology and Religion from Atlantis to the Holocaust. Ongoing archaeogeophysical projects include the subsurface imaging of a Roman bath house from the time of Jesus, located in Nazareth; the geophysical mapping of the ancient Phoenician harbour of Tel Akko, perhaps the first constructed harbour in the world; and the geophysical mapping of the destroyed and buried remains of a World War II Nazi extermination camp at Sobibor, Poland. A few water resource projects of note include the introduction of an entirely new approach to water exploration in Africa, which raised success rates in drilling from less than 20% to over 90% in Malawi; innovative and successful geophysical water exploration programs in Yemen which tapped previously unused aquifers in areas that had gone years without significant rainfall; and the secondment to UNICEF to assess the impact of the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami to the water resources of Aceh Province in Indonesia, and to begin the redevelopment and rehabilitation of water supplies to the region -- besides being an experienced geophysicist and hydrogeologist, Paul speaks fluent Indonesian and Malay.

TuzGolu - salt lake in Turkey
The lake, occupying a tectonic depression in the central plateau of Turkey, is fed by two major streams, groundwater, and surface water. For most of the year, it is very shallow. During winter part of the salt is dissolved in the fresh water that is introduced to the lake by precipitation and surface runoff. During the summer the lake dries up exposing an average of 30 cm thick salt layer in August. This mechanism is used as a basis for the process of the salt mines in the lake. The three mines operating in the lake produce 63% of the salt consumed in Turkey. The salt mining generates industrial activity in the region, mainly related to salt processing and refining. In 2001, Lake Tuz was declared a specially protected area, including all of the lake surface and surrounding waterbeds and some of the important neighboring steppe areas.

If Plato knows, then he will tell. After thousands of years, so many of us still search for the answer to the mystery of Atlantis. From time to time, archaeologists and historians locate evidence. There have been many locations proposed for the location of Atlantis. Ever since the first recorded history of Atlantis, written by the Greek philosopher Plato over 2,300 years ago, debate has raged as to whether or not Atlantis ever really existed. The existence of Atlantis is supported by the fact that it is described in great details by Plato. In additions, various conditions, events and goods unknown to Plato are also described in detailed and lengthy words. Plato himself asserts that it is a real story. The first suggested linkage between Atlantis and Indonesia came from the leading Theosophist, CW Leadbeater, and the Lieutenant-Governor of British Java, Thomas Stamford Raffles, in the 19th century. One of the first researchers to Atlantis there, in the mid 1990s, is the American polymath William Lauritzen. The concept of Sundaland Atlantis was given a huge boost by the publication of the late Brazilian professor Arysio Nunes dos Santos’ book “Atlantis: The Lost Continent Finally Found” in 2005. The prehistoric flooding of the Sundaland region is covered extensively by a paediatrician and geneticist, Stephen Oppenheimer in 1998. The atlantology of Sundaland hypothesis is also flanked by the studies of the geologist and geophysicist, Robert M Schoch together with Robert Aquinas McNally in 2003. Other proponents of the Sundaland Atlantis are Zia Abbas, Sunil Prasannan and Danny Hilman Natawidjaja. The recent knowledge of late glacial and postglacial sea level rise and land subsidence that occurred almost precisely at the time described by Plato also becomes strong evidence to the truth of the story. Plato describes Atlantis from the point of views of geography, climate, plain layout, city layout, river and channel hydraulics, produces, social structure, customs, mythology and its destruction in details including their dimensions and orientations. These become the subjects of Dhani Irwanto to hypothesize that the lost city of Atlantis is in Java Sea, as written in a book “Atlantis: The lost city is in Java Sea”, published in April 2015. The works include over 5-year research and analysis of textbooks, papers, internet sites and digital data collected by the author as well as some site observations. The author has made a serious effort to match Plato’s narrative with his chosen location for Atlantis, namely off the southern coast of the island of Kalimantan in the Java Sea. He also uses his professional expertise to analyse Plato’s many references to the waterways of the Atlantis capital and its extensive plain. He commendably draws attention to the remarkable water transportation and irrigation system in Central Kalimantan. He found a lot more detailed converging evidence, summarized in a 60-bullet checklist of agreements between Plato’s Atlantis and Sundaland/Java Sea localization, as proofs that his theory is the most complete and probable until today.

Dr Damien Maher at SCU, 14 Nov 2012, 'Air, Water and CSG: current research and future perspectives'
Part 2 of a two part public lecture, presented by Dr Isaac Santos and Dr Damien Maher from the Southern Cross University's Centre for Coastal Biogeochemistry Research, in the School of Environment, Science and Engineering, Whitebrook Theatre, SCU, Wed 14 Nov 2012. The scientists and their research students have spent time in Queensland collecting preliminary data from that state's large CSG fields to compare it with data from NSW. "We have performed snapshot surveys of methane concentrations in the atmosphere and creeks near Tara in Southern Queensland and in the Richmond River catchment in Northern NSW," said Dr Maher. "The concentrations of methane were much higher in the atmosphere and creek waters around Tara than in Northern NSW. "Mining in the Tara region is at full speed, while in Northern NSW we are still at the exploration stage. Contrasting the two regions provides insight into how to best manage CSG in the Northern Rivers area." Dr Santos said the lecture would report on original scientific results to be published in peer reviewed scientific journals in the coming months. "The current discussions on CSG are often based on anecdotal evidence, old observations not designed to assess CSG or data obtained overseas. "We believe universities are independent institutions that should provide hard data to inform this discussion. The lack of site-specific baseline data is staggering," said Dr Santos. A 2012 Australian Research Council grant to Dr Santos and his colleagues in the Centre for Coastal Biogeochemistry Research, Professor Bradley Eyre, Dr Symon Dworjanyn, Dr Joanne Oakes and Dr Dirk Erler, enabled Southern Cross University to purchase unique scientific instrumentation not available anywhere else in Australia. "We are now able to measure the concentrations of carbon dioxide and methane at one second intervals with incredible precision while driving a car or a boat. The instrumentation also measures the stable isotopes of carbon which gives us insight into the source of methane," said Dr Santos. He said the lecture would also address some of the major questions emerging from the CSG debate. "How will our creeks and groundwater be impacted by CSG exploration? How can we monitor the fate of CSG co-produced waters? How to assess the overall impact of CSG exploration on greenhouse gas budgets?" The lecture is free and open to the community. Complex scientific concepts will be conveyed in a simple and understandable manner. Dr Santos and Dr Maher will speak for 30 minutes each and take questions after the lecture. Date: Wednesday, November 14 Time: 5.30pm -- 7.30pm Venue: Whitebrook Theatre, Southern Cross University, Military Road, East Lismore BIOS Dr Isaac Santos is a world leader in groundwater research and the Deputy Director of the Centre for Coastal Biogeochemistry at SCU. Dr Santos has 50 scientific peer reviewed publications, many of which focus on the hydrology and chemistry of the Richmond River. In 2011 Santos was given an award from the Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation, the largest global federation of coastal scientists for his research on groundwater. Dr Damien Maher is an expert in carbon dioxide cycling in the environment. He has published the first scientific papers estimating carbon dioxide fluxes in Australian estuaries. Dr Maher has recently developed a rapid approach to perform high precision methane measurements in air and water. The research performed by Dr Santos and Dr Maher builds on Southern Cross University's strengths in the field of geochemistry. In 2010, SCU was given the highest rank of 5 in the Excellence in Research Australia assessment for research "well above world standards". SCU's ERA rank in the field of geochemistry is matched by only other two universities in Australia, both of which located in metropolitan areas. Photo: Dr Isaac Santos taking groundwater samples.

محاولة إنقاذ رجل علقت شاحنته وسط السيول
The Alaska Air National Guard says a man who needed rescuing from his submerged truck in Cache Creek may have been trying to cross the creek. "There's a mining road 100 to 200 yards upstream that crosses the creek, but water levels have been higher lately due to the amount of rainfall," said Lt. Col. Keenan Zerkel, the Pave Hawk helicopter pilot who helped in the rescue. Word of the trapped man on Cache Creek, near Mile 40 Petersville Road, first reached Alaska State Troopers just before 7:15 p.m. Thursday, according to an online dispatch. The man crawled out of the cab of his truck and on top of the vehicle while it was moving downstream, the Air Guard reported Monday. A bystander who was with him left the scene for cell service to call for help. Troopers called the Alaska Rescue Coordination Center, which coordinated a response. The Air Guard says it launched an HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopter with two pararescuemen onboard and an MC-130P Combat Shadow aircraft, which provided aerial refueling. Rescuing the stranded man required a "high-hover technique" and a 180-foot hoist — 4 1/2 times higher than a typical mission involving a hoist, according to the Air Guard. Officials said they didn't want to get too close to the man and blow him off the truck. The Air Guard noted that high waters contributed to a rafting accident at Lake Creek earlier in August and reminded people to exercise caution on waterways, as high waters resulted from an abundance of rain in certain parts of the state this summer. ⬇⬇ ⬇⬇ ⬇⬇ ⬇⬇ ⬇⬇ ⬇⬇ ⬇⬇ ⬇⬇ ⬇⬇ ⬇⬇ اضغط هنا للمزيد من المتابعة على صفحاتنا: 👈 الصفحة الرئيسية لقناة ASTV https://www.youtube.com/c/AmirSalehTV 👈 صفحة أمير صالح لخدمات الكمبيوتر https://www.facebook.com/AmirSalehForComputerServices 👈 صفحة اضحك للصبح https://www.facebook.com/ed7aklessob7 👈 صفحة قراءة من كتاب https://www.facebook.com/qeraa.men.ketab 👈 صفحة Back to Islam https://www.facebook.com/baktoislam 👈 صفحة فلتكن عبدا ربانيا https://www.facebook.com/conrabbany 👈 صفحة الفيس بوك الشخصية https://www.facebook.com/PC.doctor.AmirSaleh Hat dieser Mann wirklich aus dem LKW umlagert von den Fluten gerettet? ¿Ese hombre realmente rescatado de la camioneta asediado por las inundaciones?

Late in Autumn, and the upper levels are starting to get cold. 500mb temps near -20C helped produce some heavy isolated showers and some weak thunderstorms. This particular cell was around 4pm over the Canungra area in the Gold Coast hinterland in Queensland Australia. Was very interesting to watch how crisp the updrafts were compared to the completely clear sky around them. It was something i have never really seen before.. but quite cool. (no pun intended)
