Cities affect weather thousands of kilometres away Reply

Heat from large cities alters local streams of high-altitude winds, potentially affecting weather in locations thousands of kilometres (miles) away. The findings could explain a long-running puzzle in climate change — why some regions in the northern hemisphere are strangely experiencing warmer winters than computer models have forecast.


Cities generate vast amounts of waste heat, from cars, buildings and power stations, which burn oil, gas and coal for transport, heating or air conditioning. This phenomenon, known as the “urban heat island,” has been known for years, but until now has mainly been thought to affect only city dwellers, especially in summer heatwaves.


But a team of scientists in the United States, using a computer model of the atmosphere, point to impacts that go much farther than expected. The high concentration of heat rises into jet-stream winds and widens their flow, transporting heat — as much as one degree Celsius (1.8 degrees Fahrenheit) — to places far away. The modelling sees autumn and winter warming across large parts of northern Canada and Alaska and in northern China.


The effect on global temperatures, though, is negligible, accounting for an average warming worldwide of just 0.01 C (0.02 F).

Four Steps To Deal With Dishonest People Reply

You’ve been wronged. Now and then we all have to deal with someone being dishonest. I just had to.

mdashf‘s insight:

4 well guided advise. I have had my woes from people/authority who are supposed to behave ethically and fairly, issues lingered for years and I saw no hope that the wrong doers will change nor will it ever be enforced on them. I had to change my course of action and I am where I am today.

134 Lectures about the Foundations of Modern Physics (Stanford Courses – Prof. Leonard Susskind) Reply

See on Scoop.itScience Communication from mdashf

Free video course on Foundations of Modern Physics by Leonard Susskind of Stanford. This Stanford Continuing Studies course is a six-quarter sequence of classes exploring the essential theoretical foundations of modern physics.


This Stanford Continuing Studies course is a six-quarter sequence of classes exploring the essential theoretical foundations of modern physics. The topics covered in this course focus on classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, the general and special theories of relativity, electromagnatism, cosmology, black holes and statistical mechanics. While these courses build upon one another, each section of the course also stands on its own, and both individually and collectively they will allow the students to attain the “theoretical minnimum” for thinking intelligently about physics. Quantum theory governs the universe at its most basic level. In the first half of the 20th century physics was turned on its head by the radical discoveriies of Max Planck, Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg, and Erwin Schroedinger. An entire new logical and mathematical foundation – quantum mechanics – eventually replaced classical physics. This course explores the quantum world, including the particle theory of light, the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, and the Schroedinger Equation. The course is taught by Leonard Susskind, the Felix Bloch Professor of Physics at Stanford University.


Here is a comprehensive listing of all lectures from Dr. Susskind:

Lecture series by Professor Andrew Ng for Machine Learning (CS 229) in the Stanford Computer Science department. This course provides a broad introduction to machine learning and statistical pattern recognition. Topics include supervised learning, unsupervised learning, learning theory, reinforcement learning and adaptive control. Recent applications of machine learning, such as to robotic control, data mining, autonomous navigation, bioinformatics, speech recognition, and text and web data processing are also discussed.
