Geologists Discover New Layer in Earth’s Mantle

"Earth’s main layers are the thin crust 4 – 50 miles (6.4 – 80.5 km) deep, a mantle extending 1,800 miles (2,900 km) deep and the iron core.
But there are subdivisions."


Fascinating stuff!

The Search for Antibiotics (in caves)


"An upcoming episode of the popular CBC show, The Nature of Things with Daivid Suzuki, follows scientists into British Columbia’s caves as they search for new antibiotics."

Click here to read the story on the Caving News page.

Added bonus:  The cursor acts like a flashlight on the background cave walls of the Caving News web page. Have fun!

That's all for now,

Angel's Perch Movie

Now mobile users can text to donate to Angel's Perch!
Text ANGELS to 85944 to donate $10
($10 will be added to your next cell phone bill, Data and Messaging rates may apply)

More information on the project and other ways to donate and get involved can be found on the film's website:

This is going to be a great film, one of an emotional journey. Writer/Producer J.T. Arbogast's grandmother was lost to Alzheimer's Disease and she was from the Cass area of West Virginia. That's where the bulk of the film will be shot.

I also lost a grandmother to the disease. She was my father's mom. I can remember when she reached the point that she would think my toddler daughter was me. Sadly, she would have to be reminded that I had grown up and had a child of my own.

I've supported the project and encourage others to as well. And now, it's even easier to do with Text to Donate by texting ANGELS to 85944. See the web site for more information:
