Tips to have a succesfull Geology degree in ESPOL
 
02:59
What would you recommend as a useful pastime in your degree? In the career of geological engineering you’ll acquire knowledge about earth sciences important courses are petrology and Mineralogy these courses will serve you in the rest of courses later so a useful pastime is to visit the laboratory of Mineralogy and Petrology in your free time, here you could acquire more knowledge about petrology in microscopy and studying hand rock specimens. What advice would you give to someone who is interested in studying your degree? If you really want to study Geology you don’t need a broad qualification in physics or math but it helps you to understand physical properties of the earth commonly used by geophysicists to detect oilfields and ore deposits. Another important advice is that you should love to travel to be a geologist it’s because geology often is a practice career, you’ll have to work hours outdoor but the benefit is you’ll visit the best landscapes, so I recommend you go to buy a pair of boats and clothes for all weathers. Another important advice is that the most specialized information about particular topics that you will require sometimes you’ll find it in publications in English, so I recommend you take your English courses at starting your career. How can you get into the workforce of your field? As you know, the work field of geology is wide that’s why there are a number of ways to get into the worforce field. In this way see if you can get a job in companies dedicated to petroleum, mining, risks management, geophysics, consultancies, etc. also we recommend you to work in an exploration company starting like a geologist junior, or like unpaid sort mainly in mining companies that often require this kind of students to universities, maybe also you prefer to work as your own boss in your own consultancy if you consider you have the sufficient experience for this or maybe you like the idea to work in the University and help with investigation topics.

Ice age
 
40:38
An ice age is a period of long-term reduction in the temperature of the Earth's surface and atmosphere, resulting in the presence or expansion of continental and polar ice sheets and alpine glaciers. Within a long-term ice age, individual pulses of cold climate are termed "glacial periods" (or alternatively "glacials" or "glaciations" or colloquially as "ice age"), and intermittent warm periods are called "interglacials". Glaciologically, ice age implies the presence of extensive ice sheets in the northern and southern hemispheres. By this definition, we are in an interglacial period - the holocene, of the ice age that began 2.6 million years ago at the start of the Pleistocene epoch, because the Greenland, Arctic, and Antarctic ice sheets still exist.

Cruise ships testing a 'Google Maps' for the sea

Email 'Google Maps' for the sea: Cruise ship testing new satellite system By Jade Macmillan Photo: The Ovation of the Seas is taking part in a trial of new satellite technology. (Supplied: Royal Carribean) Many of us would struggle to cope without the navigation systems in our cars or on our mobile phones — from finding our way around a new area, to tracking a meal delivery — it has become a valuable tool for everyday life. Key points:The technology could improve positioning data accuracy from within 10m to 10cmIt could be used in mining, construction, aviation, agriculture and maritime industriesWidespread rollout could add 2 per cent to the GDPAll Australians could eventually use the technology But did you know it is not as accurate as you might think?Federal government agency Geoscience Australia is trialling a new satellite system which could significantly improve positioning data across the country."Stand alone GPS today has an accuracy of five to 10 metres," researcher John Dawson said."The technology that we're testing will bring the performance of positioning down to around 10 centimetres."What do cruise ships have to do with it?Reducing the margin of error might not make a major difference to people using maps to drive from A to B, but it could deliver huge benefits to industries like the maritime sector.One of the trial participants is the Ovation of the Seas, a massive cruise ship which has been fitted with the new technology for its visits to the busy Sydney Harbour."It's the largest ship that we get into the harbour, it's 348m in length and I think it's about 10 storeys high, it won't fit under the Harbour Bridge," harbour master Philip Holliday said. Photo: Navigating Sydney Harbour requires pinpoint accuracy. (Youtube: MADSYD) "And so when we're trying to bring that into the congested area of Circular Quay, we've got to be pretty accurate and careful about what we're doing.Maritime pilots help to guide hundreds of cruise ships into the harbour every year with the help of GPS, but marine geophysicist Nicole Bergersen said the existing technology was limiting."At the moment the pilot relies partly on the computer screen for situational awareness, but also on looking out the windscreen because the GPS we have right now just isn't of the quality we need," she said."We have to place a great envelope or corridor of prohibition around any ship into which any other harbour user cannot pass. What we're enabling here is the capability to look at having one ship incoming whilst another ship is outgoing."So, how does it work?

ABN Newswire Australian Market Report of November 26, 2010
 
01:53
Corazon Mining Limited (ASX:CZN) acquires additional exploration projects contiguous with its Lynn Lake Nickel Sulphide Project in Canada. Ground includes several nickel sulphide geophysical targets as well as the Eldon East zinc-copper-silver volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) deposit. The company is now the largest landholder in the camp, controlling six drill defined zinc-copper VMS deposits in addition to its flagship nickel/copper sulphide assets. Work is currently underway to validate quality of historical work and rank these deposits for on-going exploration. YTC Resources Limited (ASX:YTC) announced further strong copper results from its ongoing drilling programme beneath the historic Nymagee Copper Mine in NSW. High grade results were recorded including 11m at 3.7% Cu and 15.7g/t Ag from 401m and 15m at 1.6% Cu and 7.2g/t Ag from 346m. The drilling beneath the Nymagee Copper Mine has now defined good continuity of high-grade copper mineralisation over 200m of strike. The next stage of drilling will include infilling this zone and defining the mineralisation at depth. Apollo Minerals (ASX:AON) has completed its four-hole reverse circulation drilling programme at the Mount Oscar Magnetite Project in Western Australia. A total of 721 metres were drilled to test a portion of the magnetite-bearing banded iron formation which had not been previously drill-tested. Three of the four holes drilled successfully intersected the banded iron formation with down-hole intersections ranging from 66m to 111m, probably representing true widths from 50m to 85m. Metallurgical results of the samples are expected in the first quarter 2011. Ampella Mining Limited (ASX:AMX) said today that deeper drill results have confirmed continuity of gold mineralisation at depth below 100m vertical on the Konkera 1.2Moz JORC Code Compliant Inferred Gold Resource. Gold assays are now being received for drilling of deeper extensions to mineralisation below 100m vertical at Konkera North, Konkera Main and Konkera East as part of an intensive A$13 million exploration program for 2010 at the Batie West Project in Burkina Faso, West Africa.

Pan left of evacuation centre in Pasig City on the outskirts of Manila (evacuees have been here since Typhoon Parma struck on 3 October) 16. Mid of evacuees 17. Close up of children in evacuation centre STORYLINE: Philippine disaster-response agencies packed tons of food aid, readied a helicopter and prepared a massive evacuation plan in the mountainous north on Sunday as another typhoon threatened the country. It comes after back-to-back storms have killed more than 750 people. Typhoon Lupit, roaring over the Pacific Ocean with sustained winds of 108 miles per hour (175 kph) and gusts of 130 miles per hour (210 kph), will likely spare Manila but could slam into the north in about three days, chief weather forecaster Dr. Prisco D. Nilo said. "It's better to prepare early, especially those in critical areas. It is better for them to relocate to a safer place," he said in a news briefing on Sunday. Lupit, a Filipino word for cruel or harsh, is the 18th tropical storm to threaten the country this year. About 20 typhoons or storms lash the Philippines annually. The Philippines is still grappling with the deadly aftermath of Tropical Storm Ketsana, which struck 16 September and triggered the worst flooding in Manila in over 40 years. It was followed by Typhoon Parma on 3 October, which lingered for a week, drenching northern mountain provinces and causing landslides that buried many homes. The two storms killed 773 people and inundated the homes of more than 7 (m) million. Hundreds were still in emergency shelters in landslide-hit Benguet province, 130 miles (210 kilometres) north of the capital, Manila, when news of the new typhoon spread. About 20 tons of rice, canned sardines and noodles were being packed and will be delivered to far-flung mountain townships in advance in case landslides again cut off transport in Benguet, a gold-mining and vegetable-producing region of more than 300-thousand people, disaster-response officer Olive Luces said. A U.N. helicopter was on standby for emergency airlifts, she said. During an emergency meeting on Sunday, town mayors were authorised to pre-emptively evacuate people from landslide and flood-prone villages based on their risk assessment. Other relatively safer areas should put in place warning systems and move people out once dangerous heavy rains continuously fall, Luces told The Associated Press by telephone. Welfare Secretary Esperanza Cabral said the government was being briefed by forecasters every six hours about the typhoon's movement and will order wider pre-emptive evacuations once it's clear that any region will be hit. Metropolitan Manila, which enjoyed mostly sunny weather on Sunday, will likely be spared, Nilo said.

The continental drift/ Airy-Heiskanen isostasy hypothesis had many flaws and scarce data. The fixist/ Pratt-Hayford isostasy, the contracting Earth and the expanding Earth concepts had many flaws as well. The idea of continents with a permanent location, the geosyncline theory, the Pratt-Hayford isostasy, the extrapolation of the age of the Earth by Lord Kelvin as a black body cooling down, the contracting Earth, the Earth as a solid and crystalline body, is one school of thought. A lithosphere creeping over the asthenosphere is a logical consequence of an Earth with internal heat by radioactivity decay, the Airy-Heiskanen isostasy, thrust faults and Niskanen's mantle viscosity determinations.

Here be Dragons 2018: Track A
 
05:15:25
Sea monsters such as the kraken, prister, and rosmarus indicated uncharted territory on elaborate new maps of the world in medieval times. Despite many advances in mapping technology and data acquisition in the last 500 years, our ocean remains largely uncharted and poorly understood. Here be Dragons convened explorers, innovators, artists, scientists, and storytellers to identify the uncharted territories that still exist in ocean exploration and storytelling. In response, MIT students will work with explorers to develop and present collaborative projects to deploy new and emerging technologies in the field that address gaps in our understanding and sharing of the ocean. Select proposals will be funded for Rapid Field Deployments. In collaboration with the National Geographic Society and New England Aquarium.

Extractive Industries in LATAM: Foreign Investment and Extractive Industries in Latin America
 
58:01
For more on this event, visit: http://bit.ly/2zBkQ3d For more on the Georgetown Latin America Initiative: https://latinamerica.georgetown.edu October 27, 2017 | Extractive industries are essential components of the economies of many countries in the region. When projects are well implemented, preserve the rights of affected people and its benefits are well managed, extractive industries can contribute to sustainable development and economic opportunities. However, the impact of extractive industries can also represent a serious challenge to the people impacted negatively by their activities. In recent decades, the importance of extractives industries in Latin America and the Caribbean has increased, with countries seeking to provide a stable investment climate, diminishing legal and regulatory framework, and limiting taxes on private companies. This has accelerated rates of economic growth but it has also been accompanied by significant levels of corruption, social conflict and environmental damage, in some cases undermining democracy and the human rights of many people in the region. How can extractive industries and government regulation balance local expectations with national development plans and calibrate industry regulations and investment promotion? How can stakeholders (policymakers at all levels, civil society, multinational corporations) maximize the benefits of extracting resources, while minimizing the risks of corruption, resource-curse ills, violation of human rights and environmental degradation? How can a favorable investment/business environment be created without sacrificing long term national interests, or jeopardizing local goals and rights? This conference, organized by the different Latin American students’ organizations at Georgetown University and sponsored by Georgetown University’s Latin American Initiative, aims to bring together researchers, practitioners and community leaders from throughout the region that can help us think through this difficult yet poignant questions. Hence, taking the lead from the Latin American Studies Association’s call for a “dialogues of knowledge”, the conference aims to include the voices of indigenous, afro-descendants and other popular sectors in the discussion.

Project Space Track was started at the Air Force Cambridge Research Center at Laurence G. Hanscom Field, now Hanscom Air Force Base, in Bedford, Massachusetts shortly after the launch of Sputnik I. Observations were obtained from some 150 sensors worldwide by 1960 and regular orbital predictions were issued to the sensors and interested parties. Space Track was the only organization that used observations from all types of sources: radar, optical, radio, and visual. All unclassified observations were shared with the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory. In 1961, the system was declared operational and assigned to the new 1st Aerospace Surveillance and Control Squadron as part of NORAD's Space Detection and Tracking System (SPADATS).

Pakistan began development of nuclear weapons in January 1972 under Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, who delegated the program to the Chairman of the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC) Munir Ahmad Khan with a commitment to having the bomb ready by the end of 1976. Since PAEC, consisting of over twenty laboratories and projects under nuclear engineer Munir Ahmad Khan, was falling behind schedule and having considerable difficulty producing fissile material, Abdul Qadeer Khan was brought from Europe by Bhutto at the end of 1974. As pointed out by Houston Wood, Professor of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, in his article on gas centrifuges, "The most difficult step in building a nuclear weapon is the production of fissile material"; as such, this work in producing fissile material as head of the Kahuta Project was pivotal to Pakistan developing the capability to detonate a nuclear bomb by the end of 1984.The Kahuta Project started under the supervision of a coordination board that oversaw the activities of KRL and PAEC. The Board consisted of A G N Kazi (secretary general, finance), Ghulam Ishaq Khan (secretary general, defence), and Agha Shahi (secretary general, foreign affairs), and reported directly to Bhutto. Ghulam Ishaq Khan and General Tikka Khan appointed military engineer Major General Ali Nawab to the program. Eventually, the supervision passed to Lt General Zahid Ali Akbar Khan in President General Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq's Administration. Moderate uranium enrichment for the production of fissile material was achieved at KRL by April 1978.Pakistan's nuclear weapons development was in response to the loss of East Pakistan in 1971's Bangladesh Liberation War. Bhutto called a meeting of senior scientists and engineers on 20 January 1972, in Multan, which came to known as "Multan meeting". Bhutto was the main architect of this programme, and it was here that Bhutto orchestrated nuclear weapons programme and rallied Pakistan's academic scientists to build the atomic bomb in three years for national survival.At the Multan meeting, Bhutto also appointed Munir Ahmad Khan as chairman of PAEC, who, until then, had been working as director at the nuclear power and Reactor Division of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), in Vienna, Austria. In December 1972, Abdus Salam led the establishment of Theoretical Physics Group (TPG) as he called scientists working at ICTP to report to Munir Ahmad Khan. This marked the beginning of Pakistan's pursu ...

Occupying 650 square kilometres (250 sq mi) along the banks of the Musi River, it has a population of about 6.9 million and a metropolitan population of about 7.75 million, making it the fourth most populous city and sixth most populous urban agglomeration in India. At an average altitude of 542 metres (1,778 ft), much of Hyderabad is situated on hilly terrain around artificial lakes, including Hussain Sagar—predating the city's founding—north of the city centre. Established in 1591 by Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah, Hyderabad remained under the rule of the Qutb Shahi dynasty for nearly a century before the Mughals captured the region. In 1724, Mughal viceroy Asif Jah I declared his sovereignty and created his own dynasty, known as the Nizams of Hyderabad. The Nizam's dominions became a princely state during the British Raj, and remained so for 150 years, with the city serving as its capital. The city continued as the capital of Hyderabad State after it was brought into the Indian Union in 1948, and became the capital of Andhra Pradesh after the States Reorganisation Act, 1956. Since 1956, Rashtrapati Nilayam in the city has been the winter office of the President of India. In 2014, the newly formed state of Telangana split from Andhra Pradesh and the city became the joint capital of the two states, a transitional arrangement scheduled to end by 2025. Relics of Qutb Shahi and Nizam rule remain visible today; the Charminar—commissioned by Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah—has come to symbolise Hyderabad. Golconda fort is another major landmark. The influence of Mughlai culture is also evident in the region's distinctive cuisine, which includes Hyderabadi biryani and Hyderabadi haleem. The Qutb Shahis and Nizams established Hyderabad as a cultural hub, attracting men of letters from different parts of the world. Hyderabad emerged as the foremost centre of culture in India with the decline of the Mughal Empire in the mid-19th century, with artists migrating to the city from the rest of the Indian subcontinent. The Telugu film industry based in the city is the country's second-largest producer of motion pictures. Hyderabad was historically known as a pearl and diamond trading centre, and it continues to be known as the "City of Pearls". Many of the city's traditional bazaars remain open, including Laad Bazaar, Begum Bazaar and Sultan Bazaar. Industrialisation throughout the 20th century attracted major Indian research, manufacturing and financial institutions, including Defence Research and Development Organization, Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited, Indian Institute of Chemical Technology, the National Geophysical Research Institute and the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology. Special economic zones dedicated to information technology have encouraged companies from India and around the world to set up operations in Hyderabad. The emergence of pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries in the 1990s led to the area's naming as India's "Genome Valley". With an output of US$74 billio ...
