    It must have been extremely difficult to see that well camouflaged red and white pole which was driving recklessly towards the helicopter in the thick fog and the intense snow storm.
  • Refreezing Earth's poles feasible and cheap, new study finds

    09/17/2022 5:07:27 AM PDT · by devane617 · 67 replies ^ | 09/17/2022
    The poles are warming several times faster than the global average, causing record smashing heatwaves that were reported earlier this year in both the Arctic and Antarctic. Melting ice and collapsing glaciers at high latitudes would accelerate sea level rise around the planet. Fortunately, refreezing the poles by reducing incoming sunlight would be both feasible and remarkably cheap, according to new research published today in Environmental Research Communications. Scientists laid out a possible future program whereby high-flying jets would spray microscopic aerosol particles into the atmosphere at latitudes of 60 degrees north and south—roughly Anchorage and the southern tip of...

    In 1621, the city of Chocim in today's western Ukraine witnessed a mighty battle between the Polish-Lithuanian Empire and an invading Ottoman army. Chocim is rightly remembered by Poland as a victory, although the conflict ended in a political draw. But this stalemate was fought by only about 50,000 men against three times as many Turks and Mongols. After the death of the Polish commander-in-chief, Jan Karol Chodkiewicz, it was Stanisław Lubomirski (1583–1649), not yet forty years old, who turned the tide in favor of Warsaw. Chocim was not the first battle in this war against Muslim aggression. Already in...

This was acknowledged by the reasonable people among the Jews themselves. They have nothing to do with Judaism. These people are a polytheist nation. The label 'Jews' was imposed upon them.

    If you venture too close to one of Earth's poles, you'll notice something rather strange happening to any gadgets using radio waves, satellite connections, or GPS. NASA is backing a range of initiatives to investigate the northern polar cusp, a funnel in space that's thought to be behind some of the weird space phenomena happening above the poles. This funnel, and the matching one at the South Pole, allows solar winds from the Sun to get right down to Earth's atmosphere – in other words, here the solar winds aren't reflected back out into space by the Earth's magnetic field,...

    Outgoing President admits he was not sober in Kharkov 22.12.2005 President Aleksander Kwasniewski has admitted that he was under the influence of alcohol during his visit to the Ukrainian city Kharkov in 1999. The president’s behaviour on a tour of the graves of Polish army officers murdered by the Soviet security police in 1940 prompted mass media comments that he was not sober. His aides blamed this on leg problems. Interviewed by the TVN24 news channel today, Kwasniewski said he had drank alcohol. He added that he was ill at that time and was taking medicines. He said that he...

    Jupiter is a big, complex, chaotic planet. It has long been known as the most dominant feature in our sun’s orbit, but it wasn’t until last May that the planet’s internal features began to be revealed. During a few close passes, NASA’s $1.1 billion Juno spacecraft collected data on the gas giant that revealed cyclones the size of Earth and a surprisingly strong magnetic field. Now, data collected by Juno have uncovered more never-before-seen features on its north and south poles. In a study published this week in the journal Nature, a team of scientists report bizarre geometric storms surrounding...

    "Hundreds of Polish residents took to the streets to give a hero's welcome to a convoy of U.S. troops who are driving through eastern Europe and deliver a damning message to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Children climbed on to Stryker armoured vehicles and even offered souvenirs to the troops, who stopped to pose for pictures in the main square of the eastern Polish town of Bialystok. Meanwhile other residents lined the roads and applauded as the troops from the 3rd Squadron of the 2nd Cavalry Regiment of the American Army passed by." "The scenes mirrored those in France after Paris...

    KALISZ, Poland — For evidence of how much President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia has jangled nerves and provoked anxiety across Eastern Europe, look no farther than the drill held the other day by the Shooters Association. The paramilitary group, like more than 100 others in Poland, has experienced a sharp spike in membership since Mr. Putin’s forces began meddling in neighboring Ukraine last year. Thirty students took an oath to defend Poland at all costs, joining nearly 200 other regional members of the association — young men and women, boys and girls — marching in formation around the perimeter...

    Polish-American culture has been impugned and insulted by the current Occupant of the White House. The president's ignorance is apparent when it comes to the long history and perseverance of the Poles in their fight for liberty. To take one notable example, on the 70th anniversary of the Soviet invasion of Poland, Obama announced his cancelation of plans to place missile interceptors there. Obama has gone out of his way to disrespect the Poles with his "Polish death camps" remark, or his choosing to play golf instead attending the memorial for Polish President Lech Kaczynski, the Polish first lady, and...

    Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez maintained a 15 percentage-point lead over his opposition rival Henrique Capriles in a closely watched poll published on Monday, less than three months ahead of an Oct. 7 presidential election. The June survey by respected local pollster Datanalisis showed 46.1 percent of voters backing Chavez and 30.8 percent for Capriles, while the rest were undecided or did not respond. Chavez is seeking a new six-year term at the helm of South America's biggest oil exporter, but he has been battling cancer for a year and not able to match the intensive campaigning of his younger opponent,...

    Poles and Polish-Americans expressed outraged Tuesday at President Obama’s reference earlier that day to “a Polish death camp” — as opposed to a Nazi death camp in German-occupied Poland. “The White House will apologize for this outrageous error,” Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski tweeted. Sikorski said that Polish Prime Minister Donald “Tusk will make a statement in the morning. It’s a pity that this important ceremony was upstaged by ignorance and incompetence.” The president had been trying to honor a famous Pole, awarding a Presidential Medal of Freedom to Jan Karski, a resistance fighter who sneaked behind enemy lines to bear...

    Not even the most patriotic Varsovian pretends that the Polish capital is beautiful. Warsaw didn’t simply suffer during the Second World War; it was systematically destroyed. Buildings were numbered according to their cultural significance, and then dynamited by the departing Nazis. To this day, other than the replica Old Town, the city is dominated by brutal, Communist-era architecture. But there is one sight which, alone, justifies a journey here: the Museum of the Warsaw Uprising, new since my last visit. It is a masterpiece of design and presentation, contriving to convey the magnitude of the ruin without losing the human...

    SYDNEY: A reversal of the Earth's magnetic poles could happen sooner than we think, according to Dutch scientists who report that the planet's magnetic field is becoming gradually less stable. A reversal could affect everything from navigation and communications equipment to the composition of the atmosphere, say experts. The report, published today in the U.K. journal Nature Geoscience, found that reversals have been far more common in the last 200 million years than they were deep in the planet's history. Wandering polesResearchers, led by Andrew Biggin of the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands, made the discovery by analysing rocks...
