As you may know, California has had a substantial amount of rain in the past few months, but did you know that all the resulting storm runoff is starting to expose gold? Click here

Speaking of large amounts of precipitation, are you aware that Kazakhstan recently got so much snow that "residents had to resort to digging tunnels to escape from their homes"? Apparently they are not used to getting quite that much snow. Click here

Continuing with the subject of water, have you heard that humans need light much like plants? At least according to Dr. Gerald Pollack we do. Apparently light gives energy to the water around our cells which helps them operate properly. Click here

There's more, but I will leave the rest for you to discover and enjoy.
Have a wonderful week.

Heavy snow and blizzards hit Kazakhstan; residents forced to dig tunnels to escape buried houses (VIDEO)

Heavy snowfall and blizzards have affected regions of Kazakhstan. Although some blizzard conditions were predicted by Kazhydromet (National Hydrometeorological Service of the Republic of Kazakhstan) such was the accumulation of snowfall in the area around Prīrechnoe, residents had to resort to digging tunnels to escape from their homes.

Sorry, Salad Lovers: We May Have No Mesclun Mix (For Two Weeks)
The system that delivers fresh salad greens like clockwork to the nation's grocery stores is breaking down slightly. In about three weeks, consumers may get a reminder of two things. First, vegetables really are fragile living things, and most of them have to survive outdoors. Second, we depend to a remarkable degree on just a few places to grow them. (That's a lesson U.K. lettuce lovers also recently got.) During winter, those bags of baby spinach and "spring mix" typically come from Yuma County, Ariz. But "we've had a little bit of a rough season down there," says Samantha Cabaluna, a vice president for marketing and communications at Tanimura & Antle, a vegetable grower. It's been unusually damp in southern Arizona, and as a result, greens in the field have been afflicted with mildew. Growers have been forced to pull vegetables from fields and end the harvest earlier than usual.

Storm Runoff In California Gold Country Exposing New Motherlode?

Weeks of rainy weather across Northern California and the storm runoff through the hills of gold country have triggered a new gold rush. “Miner Gary” Thomas said he always finds at least a little gold here on his property near Jamestown in Tuolumne County, but this year, there’s so much more runoff than normal and it’s shaking the gold from these hills.

Treasury urges Congress to raise US debt limit to avoid default
The US national debt will reach a statutory limit next week, forcing the Treasury to halt sales of certain securities and rely on “extraordinary measures” to continue paying government bills until Congress can raise or suspend the limit this fall. The 2015 law that suspended the debt ceiling will expire at midnight on March 15, at which point the US national debt will be just over $20 trillion. “Treasury anticipates that it will need to start taking certain extraordinary measures in order to temporarily prevent the United States from defaulting on its obligations,” Secretary Steven Mnuchin wrote to Congress in a letter dated March 8 and made public on Thursday. One of those measures would be suspending the sale of state and local government series (SLGS) securities “until the debt limit is either raised or suspended,” Mnuchin wrote. “I encourage Congress to raise the debt limit at the first opportunity,” he added.

3-hour volcanic eruption in Alaska threatens villages with ash
An Alaskan volcano experienced its largest eruption to date and created a large ash cloud. For the past several months, Bogoslof Volcano has had minor eruptions, but the most recent was its strongest, sending ashes 35,000 feet above sea level. Residents of the Aleutian Islands are under ash advisory after Bogoslof Island’s volcano had its strongest recorded eruption Tuesday night. The National Weather Service warned that the fishing communities could see a trace amount of ash following the powerful eruption. This isn’t the first time the volcano has erupted. Tuesday was the 36th recorded eruption over the last three months, with the next most recent one occurring February 19, CNBC reported. However, the length of the eruption and intensity were unexpected. "It was the most significant event for the entire eruption," US Geological Survey geologist Kristi Wallace told CNBC.

Westgate Park lake turns bright pink, Australia
A salt lake in Westgate Park, just off the Yarra River and Port Phillip Bay in Melbourne's center, Australia has turned a brilliant, bright pink a few days ago, delighting locals. Parks Victoria said this is a natural phenomenon in response to very high salt levels, high temperatures, sunlight and lack of rainfall. Algae growing in the salt crust at the bottom of the lake produces the red pigment (beta carotene) as part of its photosynthesis process and in response to the extremely high salt levels. "Enjoy the views, but we recommend you don’t come into contact with the water," they said on March 7, 2017. The lake is expected to return to its normal color towards winter, when the weather cools and rainfall increases. Westgate Park's lake has turned pink several times in recent years, including in 2014 and 2015.

Huge Large Hadron Collider experiment gets 'heart transplant'
One of the Large Hadron Collider's huge experiments has been given what's described as a "heart transplant". Officials said the replacement of a key component inside the CMS experiment represented the first major upgrade to the LHC - the world's biggest machine. Engineers have been carefully installing the new "pixel tracker" in CMS in a complex and delicate procedure on Thursday 100m underground. It should boost the hunt for signs of new physics phenomena. The LHC is a particle accelerator that pushes two particle beams to near the speed of light and smashes them together so that scientists can look for signs of new physics phenomena in the debris - including new sub-atomic particles. More than 1,200 "dipole" magnets steer the beam around a 27km-long circular tunnel under the French-Swiss border. At certain points around the ring, the beams cross, allowing collisions to take place. Large experiments like CMS and Atlas then record the outcomes of these encounters, generating more than 10 million gigabytes of data every year.

Every Weekend in March: Agatha Christie's "The Mousetrap"
Director Christopher Cantrell’s Comments on Standing Room Only's production of Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap. This play was originally produced in 1952 and has been in production ever since. Christie, master of the murder mystery in other plays such as Ten Little Indians and Witness for the Prosecution gives us another classic who-done-it in "The Mousetrap". Why this play is so interesting to me is the idea that everyone is not who you think them to be.
