FACT OF THE DAY:

Two of the top ten FBI ART Crimes: Iraq National Museum – Though many of the artifacts stolen in March and April 2003 from the Iraq National Museum have been recovered, between 7,000 and 10,000 still remain missing. In 2006, the statue of King Entemena of Lagash was recovered and returned to the government of Iraq during a ceremony in Washington, D.C. It was considered one of the most significant pieces that had been stolen from the museum.

Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum – On March 18, 1990, two men got into the Gardener Museum in Boston dressed as police officers. They subdued and tied up the security guards of the museum before stealing 13 art pieces from the collection. The total value of the museum pieces that were stolen was approximately $500 million and included works by Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Degas. It remains as the largest property crime in U.S. history. There is a $5 million reward for information leading to the capture of the perpetrators.

FACT OF THE DAY:

A Sea Scum Bloom Off Australia Can Be Seen From Space  ALGAL OR BACTERIAL BLOOMS IN lakes and oceans—all too common these days—are known for being a bright, sickly green or maybe an alarming red, but right now off the coast of Australia, it looks more like sawdust is floating on the surface of the water. The “sea sawdust,” also called “sea scum,” is a microscopic cyanobacterium that can photosynthesize and convert atmospheric nitrogen into ammonia. Its long, filament-like blooms were spotted by NASA’s Landsat 8 satellite in early September.

Charles Darwin described passing through such a bloom off the western coast of Australia in The Voyage of the Beagle, published in 1839: “The whole surface of the water, as it appeared under a weak lens, seemed as if covered by chopped bits of hay, with their ends jagged. … Their numbers must be infinite: the ship passed through several bands of them, one of which was about ten yards wide, and, judging from the mud-like color of the water, at least two and a half miles long.” According to Darwin, a red-colored species is what earned the Red Sea its name, and Captain Cook’s sailors gave the Australian blooms the name “sea sawdust.” Some blooms can appear green, and when they wash up on shore, they tend to look a bit like an oil spill.

Population rapidly increases as the water gets warmer between August and December, the southern hemisphere’s summer. Large blooms can deplete the oxygen in the water, and kill fish in the area. But the microbes are a vital part of the global nitrogen cycle. Their ability to convert nitrogen gas to ammonia, called nitrogen fixation, makes the molecule available for other photosynthesizing microbes, such as algae and bacteria, and releases oxygen in the process. They fix an estimated150 billion pounds of nitrogen each year, a considerable fraction of the 200 to 400 billion pounds fixed annually in the ocean. That’s a big impact for something so smallTrichodesmium bloom near the Great Barrier Reef.” src=”file:///C:/Users/e11803/AppData/Local/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image010.jpg” hspace=”12″ v:shapes=”Picture_x0020_1″>

FACT OF THE DAY:

Some Pilots Are Using Their Flight Paths to Draw in the SkyUsing a flight tracking program called CloudAhoy, pilots around the country have been drawing some intricate designs in the sky for a contest to see who can most effectively merge their skills in the air with their creative flair.

The contest, called the Wild Blue Doodle and put on by aviation company Lightspeed, challenged pilots to “create a work of art in the sky” with their flight paths, as tracked by the software, for a chance to win a new headset (worth $850). Pilots around the country took advantage of the chance to show off. The large-scale designs include a sneaker, Snoopy in his “World War I Flying Ace” guise, a howling wolf, and even a self-portrait of sorts—one pilot flew his DA40 plane in the shape of a DA40.  Creating these images took some careful planning. Brian Danza, the pilot of the DA40, told Flying magazine that he used Photoshop to create the outline of the plane, then traced that outline in Google Maps to get the coordinates of all the turns he’d need to make after taking off from Leesburg, Virginia. He then uploaded those coordinates to his aircraft’s GPS system, which guided him through the 80-mile-wide image.

After judges pick the top 10, based on artistry and challenge, other users of the software will then vote to see who gets that high-end headset, or one of the fancy leather flight bags for second and third place.

This howling wolf flight path took just over two hours to fly.    Snoopy, piloting his doghouse.

FACT OF THE DAY:

How Nature Creates Uncannily Spherical Boulders: There’s a geological phenomenon behind exceptionally round rocks & I’m going to feature this for a couple of days! LARGE BOULDERS SHAPED LIKE NEARLY perfect spheres can be found in a handful of places around the world.  Naturally occurring balls of rock can vary drastically in size. In the “Valley of Balls” or Torysh Valley in western Kazakhstan, a stretch of semi-desert landscape is covered in concretions ranging from tiny marbles to huge boulders nearly the size of a car. The larger ones still originate with a small  nucleus such as a shell, leaf, fossil or marine skeleton but, if conditions are just right, the binding phenomenon can occur for extra-long periods of time, resulting in giant spheres sometimes called “cannonball concretions:.

Some of the biggest examples can be found at Rock City, part of a Kansas state park featuring nearly 200 large sandstone concretions (claimed to be the largest such collection on earth), and some have grown to nearly 30’ across!

FACT OF THE DAY:

How Nature Creates Uncannily Spherical Boulders: There’s a geological phenomenon behind exceptionally round rocks & I’m going to feature this for a couple of days! LARGE BOULDERS SHAPED LIKE NEARLY perfect spheres can be found in a handful of places around the world. Perched amid craggy, sandy landscapes, these curious orbs have been confounding onlookers for centuries. Some are so superbly round they appear to defy nature.

Spherical boulders are molded over millions or even billions of years by a natural but long-misunderstood geological phenomenon called concretion. The concretion process occurs when sediment that has not yet hardened into rock accumulates around some sort of hard nucleus, such as a fossil or shell, and then binds together with a cementing mineral such as calcite. A natural concrete then forms in the space between sediment grains, banding the layers of sand together around the core, often in a spherical shape.

These balls of bounded sediment can later become embedded in a rock of a different composition, such as sandstone or shale. But since the cemented material is often harder and more resistant to weathering than the host rock, over millions of years the surrounding rock is eroded away, leaving just the concretion exposed, standing on its own like an otherworldly orb.

FACT OF THE DAY:

Shuka Vana,  Parrot Park or the Forest of Parrots, an aviary situated on the outskirts of Mysore in South India.   Over 2,000 birds live at Shuka Vana and, as the name suggests, the majority of them are parrots. The aviary was founded in 2012 by the spiritual and cultural head of an ashram (hermitage or a monastery.) In May 2017, the 1-acre wide and 50-meter (164-foot) high structure, which is located on ashram premises, garnered the Guinness World Record for having the most bird species (468) in an aviary.

Rows of enclosures, housing cockatoos, macaws, amazon parrots, parakeets, and conures (medium sized parrots), adorn the sides of the aviary. While some birds are allowed to fly freely during the roughly six hours of public access per day, others are kept in the enclosures for the sake of their safety and establishing proper feeding habits. Guests walk around on tiled paths, admiring Shuka Vana’s colorful inhabitants. the aviary, with an attached hospital where unhealthy birds can be rehabilitated.

The aviary conserves endangered and vulnerable birds that have entered the country through the pet industry. All the creatures brought to Shuka Vana were born and bred in captivity and it’s considered unsafe to release them into the wild. Their lifespan is also long, 60 to 70 years. Often people do not realize the care they need while purchasing them as pets.
