Life on Mars latest.  City and Huge Structures Found.. March 2013
 
10:41
Latest NASA panorama shows masive structures, transport system and intact buildings. Here's the link: Click on the White Balanced Version: http://t.co/84y28jWKAQ Its an amazing panorama showing Mount Sharp. The photograph was taken in September 2012 and has only just been pieced together. After studying the image for some time, my guess is that what you can see to the far right of the panorama ia a train terminal for trains which pass right through Mount Sharp. There are signs of what could be other vehicles, aircraft or boats. You can also make out buildings on the rise which don't appear to be ruins, they are upright suggesting they are intact. You can see steps going up the hill, you can see steps for passengers onto the vehicle in the foreground. You can also see quite clearly what appear to be hangars or bunkers cut out if the side of the mountain. If you zoom in even further than I do in the video you will make out even more detail of objects that I am describing. I have concentrated on only a small area of the panorama, I suggest you explore the whole image. Its well worth it. Well done NASA for making this available.

NASA are scratching their heads trying to figure out how they could send manned missions to Mars and what technology would be needed. Isn't it just possible that all the technology we could ever need is right there on Mars? Exactly where we left it! March 12 Update: "We have found a habitable environment that is so benign and supportive of life that probably if this water was around and you had been on the planet, you would have been able to drink it," said chief scientist John Grotzinger of the California Institute of Technology. March 13 Update: ESA and the Russian federal space agency, Roscosmos, have signed a formal agreement to work in partnership on the ExoMars programme towards the launch of two missions in 2016 and 2018. March 17 Update: NASA say that they will be spending many more weeks in Yellowknife Bay as they have 'found an environment supportive of microbial life'. Sure, and a lot more it seems to me. I feel it is not feasible to carry out traditional 'archaeology' it would take us millions of years to get to Mars in any great numbers. Curiosity should drive through Mount Sharp on the track for the old transport system we have seen in the video. Get in there and I am sure we will find all the technology we could ever need.

yellowknife
 
01:38
The Yellowknife settlement is considered to have been founded in 1934, after gold was found in the area, although commercial activity in the present-day waterfront area did not begin until 1936. Yellowknife quickly became the centre of economic activity in the NWT, and was named the capital of the Northwest Territories in 1967. As gold production began to wane, Yellowknife shifted from being a mining town to a centre of government services in the 1980s. However, with the discovery of diamonds north of Yellowknife in 1991, this shift has begun to reverse.

Northwest Territories
 
21:00
The Northwest Territories (NWT; French: les Territoires du Nord-Ouest, TNO) is a territory of Canada. With a population of 41,462 in 2011 and an estimated population of 43,537 in 2013, the Northwest Territories is the most populous territory in Northern Canada. Yellowknife became the territorial capital in 1967, following recommendations by the Carrothers Commission. The Northwest Territories entered the Canadian Confederation July 15, 1870, but the current borders were formed April 1, 1999, when the territory was subdivided to create Nunavut to the east, via the Nunavut Act and the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement Act. While Nunavut is mostly Arctic tundra, the Northwest Territories has a slightly warmer climate and is mostly boreal forest (taiga), although portions of the territory lie north of the tree line, and its most northern regions form part of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago.

ICE ROAD TRUCKING - THE ORIGINAL NORTH AMERICAN STORY
 
10:01
Since its completion in 1979, the 417-mile-long Dempster Highway has provided Inuvik, the largest town north of the Arctic Circle in Canada's Northwest Territories, with year-round road access to the rest of the country. Built from gravel and crushed stone piled high on top of permanently frozen ground, the Dempster makes for treacherous driving, especially during the winter months. Once you get past Inuvik, however, the situation gets even tougher. Sometimes called the Amazon of the north, the Mackenzie River begins at the Great Slave Lake and flows north into the Arctic Ocean's Beaufort Sea. During most of the year, towns in the Mackenzie River Delta region, such as Aklavik, located west of Inuvik, and Tuktoyaktuk, located 100 miles north on the coast of the Beaufort Sea, are accessible only by air or boat. When the weather gets cold enough to freeze the river (often in December but sometimes not until January or February) drivers heading north from Inuvik take their chances on the Mackenzie River Ice Road, opened for the first time in February 1981. Though the ice road is reportedly well-marked and plowed frequently to remove insulating layers of snow, extreme caution is necessary to navigate through often severe weather conditions and potholes caused by fissures in the ice. At kilometer 34, the road breaks into two branches, one heading west towards Aklavik while the other shoots up toward Tuk. The rough driving conditions only get worse further north, as the road reaches the mouth of the Mackenzie near Tuk and heads onto the frozen surface of the Beaufort Sea itself. Prior to 1981, dogsled was the only way to make the journey north to Tuk and other river delta communities; since then, trucks have been able to take the place of boats on the river highway during the winter months. They play the crucial role of supplying the river delta communities such as Tuk with much-needed medical and other supplies, as well as fueling the economy of the Northwest Territories by ferrying machinery, tools and fuel to work sites like that of MGM Energy Corporation, a Canadian oil and gas exploration and development company, and the Mallik Gas Hydrate Research Project, which studies the potential of extracting carbon energy from the natural gas hydrates that exist in the permafrost soil north of the Arctic Circle. The Mackenzie River Ice Road is only one of many similar Canadian ice roads; the longest one in the country (and the world) is the Tibbitt to Contwoyto Winter Road, which extends 370 miles from north of Yellowknife into the neighboring territory of Nunavut and allows trucks to service several diamond mines along the way. Ice roads are also in use in Finland, Norway, Alaska and Russia. In one particularly famous instance, the so-called Doroga Zhizni, or "Road of Life, stretching across the frozen Lake Ladoga, was used to evacuate refugees from Leningrad when the city was under siege by the Germans for 900 days—from September 1941 to January 1944—during World War II. During the winter months of the siege, trucks did the work of boats, ferrying thousands of people across the frozen lake to freedom.

De Beers Group's Report Shows How Diamonds Help Communities Sparkle in Canada
 
03:28
It has invested C$125 million (US$93 million) in local procurement, including awarding its first ‘evergreen’ supply contract to aboriginal-owned business Bouwa Whee Catering at its new Gahcho Kué diamond mine in the Northwest Territories. De Beers recognised that short-term contracts gave only limited scope for investment and planning, thus reducing job opportunities locally, so it now offers contracts lasting for the duration of the mine. Bouwa Whee Catering, 100 per cent owned by the Yellowknives Dene First Nation, is now responsible for catering services at the mine until mining ends.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yellowknife Yellowknife (pronounced /ˈjɛloʊnaɪf/) (2006 population: 18,700[1]) is the capital of the Northwest Territories (NWT), Canada. It is located on the north shore of Great Slave Lake, approximately 400 km (250 mi) south of the Arctic Circle, on the west side of Yellowknife Bay near the outlet of the Yellowknife River. Yellowknife and its surrounding water bodies were named after the local Yellowknives Dene First Nation, who made tools from regional copper deposits. The current population is ethnically mixed. Of the eleven official languages of the Northwest Territories, five are spoken in significant numbers in Yellowknife: Dene Suline, Dogrib, South and North Slavey, English, and French. In the Dogrib language, the city is known as Somba K'e ("where the money is") In 1978 the Soviet nuclear-powered satellite Cosmos 954 crashed to Earth near Yellowknife. There were no known casualties, although a small quantity of radioactive nuclear fuel was released into the environment, and Operation Morning Light—an attempt to retrieve it—was only partially successful.[13] A new mining rush and fourth building boom for Yellowknife began with the discovery of diamonds 300 km (190 mi) north of the city in 1991.[14] The last of the gold mines in Yellowknife closed in 2004. Today, Yellowknife is primarily a government town and a service centre for the diamond mines. On April 1, 1999, its purview as capital of the NWT was reduced when the territory of Nunavut was split from the NWT. As a result, jurisdiction for that region of Canada was transferred to the new capital city of Iqaluit. Consequently, Yellowknife lost its standing as the Canadian capital city with the smallest population. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Morning_Light Kosmos 954 (Russian: Космос 954 meaning Cosmos 954) was a Soviet Radar Ocean Reconnaissance Satellite (RORSAT) with an onboard nuclear reactor.[1][2] The satellite's reactor core failed to separate and boost into a nuclear-safe orbit, and instead remained on board in an orbit that decayed until the satellite reentered Earth's atmosphere (the USSR informing the US in secret meetings) on January 24, 1978 at 11:53 AM GMT. The USSR claimed that the satellite had been completely destroyed during re-entry. Subsequent recovery efforts, named Operation Morning Light, by a joint American-Canadian team swept the area by foot and air in Phase I from January 24, 1978 to April 20, 1978 and Phase II from April 21, 1978 to October 15, 1978. For these recovery efforts, the Canadian government billed the Soviet Union $6,041,174.70 for actual expenses and additional compensation for future unpredicted expenses; the U.S.S.R. eventually paid the sum of three million Canadian dollars. Liability Convention, regarding impacting artificial satellites http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince_of_Wales_Northern_Heritage_Centre The concept for the PWNHC was originally established in 1971, as a result of concern over the loss of northern artifacts and collections, and the need to provide museum services and support throughout the Northwest Territories. In 1972, a program calling for the development of museum services in the NWT received official approval from the Government of the Northwest Territories. On April 16, 1979, His Royal Highness, The Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, officiated at the opening of the facility that bears his name.

Mapping resources that matter: Paul Bauman at TEDxCanmore
 
17:08
Talk Overview 90% of geophysicists in the world explore for oil and gas. Another 5% explore for mineral resources. And another 4.9% teach and regulate the previous 95%. In today's world, fluctuating commodity prices and mountainous stockpiles of recycled metals tell us that we have too much oil, uranium, coal, and iron ore. Today and in the foreseeable future, what the world is drastically scarce of is clean water, clean soil, and a common cultural legacy. Those remaining less than 0.1% of geophysicists not accounted for, above, are dedicated to developing techniques to explore for potable water, mapping soil salinization, demining previously productive agricultural land, and delineating subsurface remains of culturally rich sites threatened by development. With examples from Africa, Asia, Australia, and the Middle East, we can see how these non-destructive subsurface investigation techniques can radically improve life not only on a local and regional scale, but even on a continent wide scale. And where we are not using these approaches, we can envision how the development of access to clean water, clean soil, and mankind's cultural legacies can be greatly improved. Speaker Profile Paul Bauman is the Technical Director of the Geophysics group at WorleyParsons, in Calgary, where he has been working since 1990. He is one of the world experts on near surface applications of borehole and surface geophysical methods as applied to investigations in water resources, archaeology, soil science, geotechnical engineering, subsurface contamination, and geohazard identification. Paul has a B.Sc.E. in Geological Engineering from Princeton University, a Minor in Near Eastern Studies from Princeton, and an M.Sc. in Earth Sciences from the University of Waterloo. Paul has published widely in peer reviewed journals, scientific volumes, and conference proceedings. He has presented geophysical papers at over 100 conferences in an extraordinarily wide range of disciplines including geophysics, soil science, hydrogeology, disaster relief, archaeology, water resource development, contaminant hydrogeology, mining, mine waste management, heavy oil, shallow gas, salt water intrusion, salt water intrusion, etc. He has been an invited speaker at many educational, professional, and government institutions including Princeton University, Boston University, California State, the University of Pennsylvania, the National Water Authority in Yemen, the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, the Royal BC Museum, and the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre in Yellowknife. Aspects of his archaeogeophysical work have been the subject of a NOVA documentary (Ancient Refuge in the Holy Land), numerous radio and television interviews, a National Geographic movie entitled "Finding Atlantis," and numerous newspaper and magazine articles including in Time, National Geographic, and the Reader's Digest. Paul's work in the Cave of Letters and other sites is featured in the recently published popular books Secrets of the Cave of Letters: Rediscovering a Dead Sea Mystery; Digging Through the Bible: Modern Archaeology and the Ancient Bible; and Digging through History: Archaeology and Religion from Atlantis to the Holocaust. Ongoing archaeogeophysical projects include the subsurface imaging of a Roman bath house from the time of Jesus, located in Nazareth; the geophysical mapping of the ancient Phoenician harbour of Tel Akko, perhaps the first constructed harbour in the world; and the geophysical mapping of the destroyed and buried remains of a World War II Nazi extermination camp at Sobibor, Poland. A few water resource projects of note include the introduction of an entirely new approach to water exploration in Africa, which raised success rates in drilling from less than 20% to over 90% in Malawi; innovative and successful geophysical water exploration programs in Yemen which tapped previously unused aquifers in areas that had gone years without significant rainfall; and the secondment to UNICEF to assess the impact of the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami to the water resources of Aceh Province in Indonesia, and to begin the redevelopment and rehabilitation of water supplies to the region -- besides being an experienced geophysicist and hydrogeologist, Paul speaks fluent Indonesian and Malay.

At a land area of approximately 1,144,000 km2 (442,000 sq mi) and a 2011 population of 41,462, it is the second-largest and the most populous of the three territories in Northern Canada. Its estimated population as of 2016 is 44,291. Yellowknife became the territorial capital in 1967, following recommendations by the Carrothers Commission. The Northwest Territories, a portion of the old North-Western Territory, entered the Canadian Confederation on July 15, 1870, but the current borders were formed on April 1, 1999, when the territory was subdivided to create Nunavut to the east, via the Nunavut Act and the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement. While Nunavut is mostly Arctic tundra, the Northwest Territories has a slightly warmer climate and is both boreal forest (taiga), and tundra, and its most northern regions form part of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. The Northwest Territories is bordered by Canada's two other territories, Nunavut to the east and Yukon to the west, and by the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan to the south.

At a land area of approximately 1,144,000 km2 (442,000 sq mi) and a 2011 population of 41,462, it is the second-largest and the most populous of the three territories in Northern Canada. Its estimated population as of 2016 is 44,291. Yellowknife became the territorial capital in 1967, following recommendations by the Carrothers Commission. The Northwest Territories, a portion of the old North-Western Territory, entered the Canadian Confederation on July 15, 1870, but the current borders were formed on April 1, 1999, when the territory was subdivided to create Nunavut to the east, via the Nunavut Act and the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement. While Nunavut is mostly Arctic tundra, the Northwest Territories has a slightly warmer climate and is both boreal forest (taiga), and tundra, and its most northern regions form part of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. The Northwest Territories is bordered by Canada's two other territories, Nunavut to the east and Yukon to the west, and by the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan to the south.

04:04
Bren Kolson speaking at The 40th Anniversary of The Takeover of Mount Rushmore & Tribal Sovereignty Forum August 29th, 2010. Bren Kolson is a Métis author and poet born in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories of Tso’Tine and Polish descent. Bren writes books, short stories, essays, poetry, and prose and enjoys photography. She lives in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories with her daughter. Myth of the Barrens is a diary format book in five genres about living and surviving the barrenlands of northern Canada in the mid to late 1970s. The experiences and adventures take place past Yellowknife and past the east arm of Great Slave Lake at the mouth of the Mary Francis River with a Dene Elder (Louison Drybones) and non-Aboriginal man (Richard Black) who were hunting, trapping and fishing on the land in pursuit of subsistence and survival. Myth of the Barrens is a true account of a young Metis woman''s discovery of the land and ancient spirits of the Canadian North. Bren Kolson travels with a Dene elder in winter across the Barrens, entering a world in which the landscape is both physical and spiritual -- the sacred land of the ancestors. Kolson vividly describes the challenges that lead her to a deeper understanding of both the land and herself, as she discovers how to not only survive but to thrive in this seemingly inhospitable landscape. Amid the cold, isolation and demanding environment, Kolson explores the balance of life and death, of hunter and hunted, even as she awakens to the extreme beauty of the Barrens. Kolson''s strong narrative is complemented by photography that underscores the physical wonders of the North and portrays a vanishing way of life for First Nations people. http://www.chapters.indigo.ca/books/myth-of-the-barrens-one/9781926696072-item.html?langtype=4105

The Great Gildersleeve: Leroy's Pet Pig / Leila's Party / New Neighbor Rumson Bullard
 
01:26:18
The Great Gildersleeve (1941--1957), initially written by Leonard Lewis Levinson, was one of broadcast history's earliest spin-off programs. Built around Throckmorton Philharmonic Gildersleeve, a character who had been a staple on the classic radio situation comedy Fibber McGee and Molly, first introduced on Oct. 3, 1939, ep. #216. The Great Gildersleeve enjoyed its greatest success in the 1940s. Actor Harold Peary played the character during its transition from the parent show into the spin-off and later in a quartet of feature films released at the height of the show's popularity. On Fibber McGee and Molly, Peary's Gildersleeve was a pompous windbag who became a consistent McGee nemesis. "You're a haa-aa-aa-aard man, McGee!" became a Gildersleeve catchphrase. The character was given several conflicting first names on Fibber McGee and Molly, and on one episode his middle name was revealed as Philharmonic. Gildy admits as much at the end of "Gildersleeve's Diary" on the Fibber McGee and Molly series (Oct. 22, 1940). He soon became so popular that Kraft Foods—looking primarily to promote its Parkay margarine spread — sponsored a new series with Peary's Gildersleeve as the central, slightly softened and slightly befuddled focus of a lively new family. Premiering on August 31, 1941, The Great Gildersleeve moved the title character from the McGees' Wistful Vista to Summerfield, where Gildersleeve now oversaw his late brother-in-law's estate and took on the rearing of his orphaned niece and nephew, Marjorie (originally played by Lurene Tuttle and followed by Louise Erickson and Mary Lee Robb) and Leroy Forester (Walter Tetley). The household also included a cook named Birdie. Curiously, while Gildersleeve had occasionally spoken of his (never-present) wife in some Fibber episodes, in his own series the character was a confirmed bachelor. In a striking forerunner to such later television hits as Bachelor Father and Family Affair, both of which are centered on well-to-do uncles taking in their deceased siblings' children, Gildersleeve was a bachelor raising two children while, at first, administering a girdle manufacturing company ("If you want a better corset, of course, it's a Gildersleeve") and then for the bulk of the show's run, serving as Summerfield's water commissioner, between time with the ladies and nights with the boys. The Great Gildersleeve may have been the first broadcast show to be centered on a single parent balancing child-rearing, work, and a social life, done with taste and genuine wit, often at the expense of Gildersleeve's now slightly understated pomposity. Many of the original episodes were co-written by John Whedon, father of Tom Whedon (who wrote The Golden Girls), and grandfather of Deadwood scripter Zack Whedon and Joss Whedon (creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly and Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog). The key to the show was Peary, whose booming voice and facility with moans, groans, laughs, shudders and inflection was as close to body language and facial suggestion as a voice could get. Peary was so effective, and Gildersleeve became so familiar a character, that he was referenced and satirized periodically in other comedies and in a few cartoons. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Gildersleeve
