PART A Part A: TYPES OF JAPANESE POEMS What are the types of Japanese poems? Japanese poetry forms. Since the middle of the 19th century, the major forms of Japanese poetry have been: tanka (the modern name for waka) Tanka is the modern name for classic Japanese poetry, meaning “short poems“. Tanka poetry is non-rhyming. There are five lines in a tanka with […]

Life Found at 2,400m Below Earth’s surface and implications for Life on Mars & Religion


LIFE IS JUST AMAZING

LIFE IS JUST AMAZING

I did an article 21st August this year on NASA/Science finding Plankton have been found living on the exterior of the (ISS) International Space Station. I think we can say with 100% positivity life can and does find a way to survive in any environment we dare to look. Deep in the sea in small lava fishers, 1000’s of feet down in Ice on both poles. The article I did was astonishing as this one is https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/08/21/life-can-survive-in-the-vacuum-of-space-proven/ If live can survive in the vacuum of space then can we assume it is everywhere? How rude of us as a species to think we are the only life in a Universe that has TRILLIONS AND TRILLIONS of Suns and TRILLIONS x TRILLIONS more planets and moons. Life also deep under the sea bed, under tons of ice then we can presume life is rife in our Universe. When we apply logic to any story we see the reality that we are shown. The implications on Religion I am unsure about. Surely if God created Man in his image and over 4 Million other species we can safely assume whoever created life or be it a fluke or chance, it is there, it is on Mars and was found on a comet earlier this year. To discover life can exist in the vacuum of space is one of the biggest Scientific discoveries in many generations of our species. https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/11/21/organic-molecules-life-detected-by-philae-lander-on-comet-67p/ That article there is ‘Some’ form of life on Comet 67P that has been beamed back to Earth from the Philae lander

Japan's Chikyu vessel has the ability to drill deep into the Earth's crust

Japan’s Chikyu vessel has the ability to drill deep into the Earth’s crust

Life uncovered by the deepest-ever marine drilling expedition has been analysed by scientists. The International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) found microbes living 2,400m beneath the seabed off Japan. The tiny, single-celled organisms survive in this harsh environment on a low-calorie diet of hydrocarbon compounds and have a very slow metabolism.

The findings are being presented at the America Geophysical Union Fall Meeting. Elizabeth Trembath-Reichert, from the California Institute of Technology, who is part of the team that carried out the research, said: “We keep looking for life, and we keep finding it, and it keeps surprising us as to what it appears to be capable of.”

The IODP Expedition 337 took place in 2012 off the coast of Japan’s Shimokita Peninsula in the northwestern Pacific. From the Chikyu ship, a monster drill was set down more than 1,000m (3,000ft) beneath the waves, where it penetrated a record-breaking 2,446m (8,024ft) of rock under the seafloor.

Sluggish ways

Samples were taken from the ancient coal bed system that lies at this depth, and were returned to the ship for analysis. The team found that microbes, despite having no light, no oxygen, barely any water and very limited nutrients, thrived in the cores. To find out more about how this life from the “deep biosphere” survives, the researchers set up a series of experiments in which they fed the little, spherical organisms different compounds. Dr Trembath-Reichert said: “We chose these coal beds because we knew there was carbon, and we knew that this carbon was about as tasty to eat, when it comes to coal, as you could get for microbes. “The thought was that while there are some microbes that can eat compounds in coal directly, there may be smaller organic compounds – methane and other types of hydrocarbons – sourced from the coal that the microbes could eat as well.”

The experiments revealed that the microbes were indeed dining on these methyl compounds. The tests also showed that the organisms lived life in the slow lane, with an extremely sluggish metabolism. They seem to use as little energy as possible to get by.

Other worlds

The researchers are now trying to work out if there are lots of different kinds of microbes living in the coal beds or whether there is one type that dominates. They also want to find out how the microbes got there in the first place. “Were these microbes just in a swamp, and loving life in a swamp, because there is all sorts of carbon available, oxygen, organic matter… and then that gets buried?” pondered Dr Trembath-Reichert. “It could be that they didn’t get a chance to escape – they couldn’t exactly walk out. So is it that they were there to begin with and then they could maintain life? “Or were they like microbes that were able to travel down to those depths from the surface?”

The discovery of vast ecosystems of microbes deeper and deeper underground is causing scientists to reassess the role that these organisms play in the carbon cycle. Because these organisms take in hydrocarbons and expel methane, a greenhouse gas, as a waste product, they may be having a greater impact on the system that governs the Earth’s climate than was previously thought. The findings also have implications for the hunt for life on other planets. If life can survive in the most extreme conditions on Earth, perhaps it has found a way to cope with harsh environments elsewhere in the cosmos.

Everywhere we look, even in the harshest environments, life seems to find a way to survive

Celtic FC Players – Show Racism the Red Card – Video By The Football Club


SRTRC-SCOTLAND

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

I did this article on Glasgow Celtic Football Club, my club, my first love, the reason my childhood made me smile, the memories I have for a lifetime, the reason I played football from the age of 8 till 23. Sadly my playing career was cut short when I was tackled hard and my left leg was left in an ‘L’ shape leaving me in agony today still and stopping me doing what every kid in Europe and around the World wants to do, that’s play Football. I did this article https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/10/26/glasgow-celtic-fc-more-than-just-a-football-club-we-are-a-people-for-my-friends-around-the-world/

The Famous Green and White 'Hoops'

The Famous Green and White ‘Hoops’

Had it not been for my love and passion of the “Celt’s” I would have stopped,I never, I went on to manage and coach football teams for 15 years before the pain won, now I write Football in many places, I love it, it’s all I have left of football. Celtic are a club open to any supporter, any fan, any player. Unlike other football clubs in Scotland we pride ourselves not just on our Irish roots but also opening our club up to the World. We have players from playing for us as I type from Honduras, Israel, Serbia, Norway, Nigeria, Ghana, Guinea-Bissau, Sweden, Belgium, Holland, Bulgaria, Poland, Italy, The Czech Republic, Australia, Iceland, Finland,Wales, Republic Of Ireland, Northern Ireland, England and of course Scotland. All the players who pull on the famous Green and White Hoops are from all these countries. Some are in the 1st team, some in the under 20 team, some are out on loan, but this diversity my club has given us a Football Club open to anyone. We do charity events all over the World, we have Football Academies all over Earth, Our International Partners are Worldwide,  Boston, New Jersey, Florida, San Diego Football Academy, St Louis, all the USA. We have supporters clubs in Australia, Canada, USA, Ireland, Africa, India, Japan, China, Russia and many in South America. We touch ever part of the globe.

Celtic and charity, Celtic was initially founded to raise money for the poor in the East End of Glasgow and the club still retain strong charitable traditions today.
On 9 August 2011 Celtic held a testimonial match in honour of former player John Kennedy. Due to the humanitarian crisis in East Africa, the entire proceeds were donated to Oxfam. An estimated £300,000 was raised.
In 1995 the Celtic charity fund was formed with the aim of “revitalising Celtic’s charitable traditions” and to August 2011 has raised over £3 million.
Celtic hold an annual charity fashion show at Celtic Park. In 2011 the main beneficiaries were Breast Cancer Care Scotland.
Yorkhill Hospital is another charity with whom Celtic are affiliated and in December 2011 the club donated £3000 to it. Chief Executive Peter Lawwell said that; “Celtic has always been much more than a football club and it is important that, at all times we play an important role in the wider community. The club is delighted to have enjoyed such a long and positive connection with Yorkhill Hospital.”

Unknown orange/red glow over Pacific Ocean


sx53fb3e65

Real strange story and images to share. I am into the unknown, unexplained, so this got my interest. New Island forming? Happened after the big Pakistan Earthquake, check, how cool!

August 24, 2014 – Last night over the Pacific Ocean, somewhere South of the Russian peninsula Kamchatka I experienced the creepiest thing so far in my flying career.
After about 5 hours in flight we left Japan long time behind us and were cruising at a comfortable 34.000ft with about 4,5 hours to go towards Alaska.
We heard via the radio about earthquakes in Iceland, Chile and San Francisco, and since there were a few volcanos on our route that might or might not be going off during our flight, we double checked with dispatch if there was any new activity on our route after we departed from Hongkong.
Then, very far in the distance ahead of us, just over the horizon an intense lightflash shot up from the ground. It looked like a lightning bolt, but way more intense and directed vertically up in the air. I have never seen anything like this, and there were no flashes before or after this single explosion of light.
Since there were no thunderstorms on our route or weather-radar, we kept a close lookout for possible storms that might be hiding from our radar and might cause some problems later on.

I decided to try and take some pictures of the night sky and the strange green glow that was all over the Northern Hemisphere. I think it was sort of a Northern Lights but it was much more dispersed, never seen anything like this before either. About 20 minutes later in flight I noticed a deep red/orange glow appearing ahead of us, and this was a bit strange since there was supposed to be nothing but endless ocean below us for hundreds of miles around us. A distant city or group of typical Asian squid-fishing-boats would not make sense in this area, apart from the fact that the lights we saw were much larger in size and glowed red/orange, instead of the normal yellow and white that cities or ships would produce.

sc53fb4004

The closer we got, the more intense the glow became, illuminating the clouds and sky below us in a scary orange glow. In a part of the world where there was supposed to be nothing but water.
The only cause of this red glow that we could think of, was the explosion of a huge volcano just underneath the surface of the ocean, about 30 minutes before we overflew that exact position.
Since the nearest possible airport was at least 2 hours flying away, and the idea of flying into a highly dangerous and invisible ash-plume in the middle of the night over the vast Pacific Ocean we felt not exactly happy. Fortunately we did not encounter anything like this, but together with the very creepy unexplainable deep red/orange glow from the ocean’s surface, we felt everything but comfortable. There was also no other traffic near our position or on the same routing to confirm anything of what we saw or confirm any type of ash clouds encountered.

gi53fb4004

We reported our observations to Air Traffic Control and an investigation into what happened in this remote region of the ocean is now started.

Two photos included, hardly edited except for watermark and resize. Note that photos are taken with extremely high ISO (sensor sensitivity) so quality might be a bit poor. Also an overview of our route + marking of the location is included.

Now I’m just hoping that if a new island has been formed there, at least it can be named after me as the official discoverer. 🙂
That would be pretty cool!

Rwanda tests suspected Ebola case


The patient is the first to be tested in Rwanda since the outbreak emerged in west Africa earlier this year

The patient is the first to be tested in Rwanda since the outbreak emerged in west Africa earlier this year

Rwanda has placed a German student with Ebola-like symptoms in isolation, and is waiting for test results checking for the deadly tropical disease, the health ministry says. “Samples from the suspected case have been sent for testing to an international accredited laboratory for approval, results will be available in 48 hours,” the health ministry said in a statement on Sunday. The patient is the first to be tested in Rwanda since the outbreak emerged in west Africa earlier this year.  This outbreak of the virus, centred on Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, is the worst recorded and has killed nearly 1,000 people. Last week the World Health Organisation declared the epidemic a global health emergency. Agnes Binagwaho, Rwanda’s health minister, said the patient was a German medical student who had recently spent time in Liberia. He had a fever and malaria but for “100 percent security” Rwanda had quarantined him, until test results were back in two days, Binagwaho said. Like other nations across east Africa, Rwanda said it had put in place measures against the deadly virus. “Surveillance systems and emergency management systems have been established,” the health ministry said. “Health workers have been trained across the country and are vigilant.”

Meanwhile, Nigeria has 10 confirmed cases of Ebola, up from seven at the last count, although only two so far have died, including the Liberian who brought the virus in, the health minister said on Monday.All were people who had had primary contact with Patrick Sawyer, who collapsed on arrival at Lagos airport on July 25th
and later died, Health Minister Onyebuchi Chukwu told a news conference. A nurse who treated him not knowing what it was and without protective gear also died.

Hong Kong test negative

As fears of the disease spread, Hong Kong’s Centre for Health Protection said on Sunday night that a Nigerian man, earlier suspected of having the virus, had tested negative at the Princess Margaret Hospital. It was Hong Kong’s first suspected case of Ebola, which is spread through blood and body fluid, in the latest outbreak. The 32-year-old man who had been vomiting and suffering from diarrhoea, both symptoms of the disease, had arrived in Hong Kong on Thursday. After he went to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, the man was transferred to the Princess Margaret Hospital and was quarantined there. According to the centre, the man had never been to Ebola-effected countries such as Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone in the past month, nor had he had contact with Ebola-positive patients and animals. The UK National Health Service website says an infected person will typically develop fever, headache, joint and muscle pain, sore throat and intense muscle weakness. These symptoms start suddenly, between two and 21 days after becoming infected, but usually after five to seven days.
