•Traumatic injuries from military combat including traffic accidents
•Circulation problems from atherosclerosis or diabetes, resulting in amputation
•Birth defects

NY-size iceberg
+------------- (NASA's Operation IceBridge)------------+
Scientists based in Punta Arena, Chile are in their third field campaign of the largest six-year airborne survey of Earth’s polar ice ever flown. The mission is geared to produce unparalleled 3D views of Arctic and Antarctic ice sheet, ice shelves and sea ice.

Instruments onboard the DC-8, a flying laboratory, include a suite of radars. Its precision topography maps with a laser than scans 360 degrees 20 times per second, while firing 3,000 laser pulses per second. The Digital Mapping System, a nadir-view camera, gathered high-definition close-ups of an enormous and unstable split.

The Western Antarctica's Pine Island Glacier is one of the largest and fastest-moving glaciers in Antarctica. On the flight perpendicular to the crack, the McCORDS radar also measured its depth and the thickness of the ice shelf in that region. The crack, formed between the end of September and early October, is fairly dramatic. When the iceberg breaks free, it will cover about 340 square miles (larger than NY City or the size of Berlin) of surface area. Radar measurements suggested the ice shelf in the region of the rift is about 1,640 feet thick, with only about 160 feet of that floating above water and the rest submerged. With the crack widening every day, the iceberg will form when it breaks away. This is expected to take place at the end of the year or in early 2012.

The ice shelf thins, the grounding line retreats and the speed of the glacier increases. The ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica are melting at an accelerating pace, and may soon become the biggest contributor and source of uncertainty to global sea level rise projections. If current rates of ice loss were to continue, sea level could rise by as much as three feet or more before the end of this century. The last big cyclical carving event occurred in 2001.

Satellites, ICESAT (Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite), ended in February 2010, and ICESAT 2, will launch in 2016, is the benchmark Earth Observing System mission intends to continue the assessment of polar ice changes and their relationship with climate.

Fall back tonight
*"The times they are a-changing." -Bob Dylan ¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨
¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨"Time meanwhile flies, never to return" -Virgil
***"Lost time is never found again" -Benjamin Franklin

¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨Back to Standard Time on 11/5/11¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨¨
We gain an hour of sleep this weekend!! Dayllight savings comes to an end at 2:00 a.m. Sunday morning. With the clocks turned back, it will be less dark in the morning but darkness will fall earlier in the evening. Arizona, Hawaii and Puerto Rico stay on standard time all year round.
The concept of daylight-saving time may have first been proposed by Benjamin Franklin in 1784 to the Parisians. The thought was that Americans would appreciate an extra hour of sunlight and conserve energy (candles and oil back then).
Transitions may disrupt chronobiologic rhythms and influence the duration and quality of sleep as the effect lasts for several days after the shift. People who suffer with sleep disorders seem to find the bi-annual transitions more difficult. The extra hour of sleep means a lost hour of afternoon sun, which increases reliance on electricity and decreases the potential for, vitamin D-giving outdoor activities. Nearly half of the world’s population has lower than optimal levels of vitamin D, often called the sunshine vitamin.
¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨Until March 11, 2012¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨

¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨"Time is valuable, and when it is gone, it is gone. Time is wealth, and unlike money, when it is gone, you cannot replace it." -Napoleon Hill
¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨"Poor people spend time to save money; Rich people spend money to save time.
¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨¨‘°ºOOº°‘¨"An extra yawn one morning in the springtime, an extra snooze one night in the autumn is all that we ask in return for dazzling gifts. We borrow an hour one night in April; we pay it back with golden interest five months later." -Winston Churchill

Poetry in motion
׺°”˜`”°º×November Night by Adelaide Crapsey׺°”˜`”°º×
...................Listen. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
..............................With faint dry sound,
..............................Like steps of passing ghosts,
......................The leaves, frost-crisp'd, break from the trees
.......................... .......................... ....................................And fall.

׺°”˜`”°º×Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening׺°”˜`”°º×
.......................................by Robert Frost

.......................Whose woods these are I think I know.
.......................His house is in the village though;
.......................He will not see me stopping here
.......................To watch his woods fill up with snow.

.......................My little horse must think it queer
.......................To stop without a farmhouse near
.......................Between the woods and frozen lake
.......................The darkest evening of the year.

.......................He gives his harness bells a shake
.......................To ask if there is some mistake.
.......................The only other sound's the sweep
.......................Of easy wind and downy flake.

.......................The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
.......................But I have promises to keep,
.......................And miles to go before I sleep,
.......................And miles to go before I sleep.

Carve out some time for fun
((¯`v´¯)) Corn Mazes-Hay Rides-Pumpkin Patches ((¯`v´¯))
Here’s your vote to either carve your pumpkin or bake a pie.
"Pick your own" pumpkin fresh from the fields during "Fall-o-Ween" season. Choose among all the colored bright orange with no bruises, soft spots, scars or signs of mold. Pumpkin stems should be dried and brittle stems to pluck from the vine. Carry it from the bottom to risk damage to the stem. Store in a cool, dry place prior to carving/displaying.

New England dream vacation
((¯`v´¯))Week-end's here. Another VOTE !!(¯`v´¯))

I sit here a meowing,
all perched in my tree,
the words are not there,
but the lyrics are free,
a sweet morning of purrs,
to the pleasure of all,
a cool and bright morning,
New England in fall.
The leaves are all parting,
the days they grow short,
the colors of Autumn;
before Winter's return,
the splendor is there,
for all to come see,
come visit New England,
and spend Fall with furrfriends?

Fall foliage-a glimpse of natures splendor
((¯`v´¯))October's kitty birthstone is Opal((¯`v´¯))

October has 31 days. It is the 10th month of the Julian & Gregorian calendars but the 8th in the early Roman calendar. It retained its name from the Latin "octo" (eight). Here's your VOTE!

...Autumn
October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came;
The ashes, oaks, and maples,
And those of every name.

"There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots may be lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on the feelings, as now in October.
I cannot endure to waste anything as precious as autumn sunshine by staying in the house. So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air." -Nathaniel Hawthorne

Tuesday, here and gone in a flash
((¯`v´¯)) Tuesday's kitty is full of grace ((¯`v´¯))

Morning, noon and night...Stare up at the starry dark blue sky and gaze at the vast horizon of infinite possibilities. Here's a vote for you.

Tuesday Afternoon by the Moody Blues
Tuesday, afternoon,
I'm just beginning to see,
Now I'm on my way,
It doesn't matter to me,
Chasing the clouds away.

Something, calls to me,
The trees are drawing me near,
I've got to find out why
Those gentle voices I hear
Explain it all with a sigh.

I'm looking at myself, reflections of my mind,
It's just the kind of day to leave myself behind,
So gently swaying thru the fairy-land of love,
If you'll just come with me and see the beauty of

Tuesday afternoon.
Tuesday afternoon.

((¯`v´¯)) Hello Furry Friend!! ((¯`v´¯))
Hope all is going well for you and loved ones.

Meowmy did not miss the latest Nathan Fillion's interview. Turns out that this actor has six cats and got one trimmed like a lion poodle. This is even more reason to like him. So happy that the new season of Castle starts this Monday on ABC.

Have a superb and idyllic weekend. Head butts and purrs to you.
