March 26, 2015 - When we think of NASA these days we have an impression of an agency that has lost its way for a number of reasons. One is budgetary constraints with NASA receiving little in the way of net new money from the federal government to initiate new programs.
March 25, 2015 - In the last two weeks climatologists and oceanographers reported the outcome of two studies, one focused on glaciers in the Antarctic, the other on ocean circulation patterns and trends. In both cases the news was disturbing.
Antarctic Glaciers Destabilizing
March 24, 2015 - Watch the video put out by Magic Leap and you get a sense of where augmented virtual reality is taking us. This Florida start up has gotten some very big companies interested in its potential led by Google and Qualcomm.
March 23, 2015 - Yesterday was World Water Day. This day, mandated by the United Nations, is meant to focus on the importance of freshwater to humanity. The truth of course is with our human population continuing to grow and freshwater a finite resource, we are heading for a crisis of our own making.
March 22, 2015 - Our drive north from Florida has ended and now it's time to get back to the last throes of winter here in Toronto. Today as I walked my dog, Maya, we heard the sound of Redwing Blackbirds in the local park. The males were staking out territory at treetop level. So this may mean a real spring is not far from breaking out here in the Great White North. It will be most welcome.
