JPL manages the Curiosity mission for NASA.The buttes and mesas are capped with rock that is relatively resistant to wind erosion. This helps preserve these monumental remnants of a layer that formerly more fully covered the underlying layer that the rover is now driving on.Early in its mission on Mars, Curiosity accomplished its main goal when it found and examined an ancient habitable environment. In an extended mission, the rover is examining successively younger layers as it climbs the lower part of Mount Sharp. A key goal is to learn how freshwater lake conditions, which would have been favorable for microbes billions of years ago if Mars has ever had life, evolved into harsher, arid conditions much less suited to supporting life. The mission is also monitoring the modern environment of Mars.These findings have been addressing high-priority goals for planetary science and further aid NASA’s preparations for a human mission to the Red Planet.For more information about Curiosity, visit and Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

But we are fortunate to have a strong primary school education system and caring teachers. They are extremely sensitive to this special day and ready to treat these young children as if they were their own.”This year a new religious education programme, ‘Grow in Love’, is introduced to the syllabus for junior and senior infant children. It replaces the Alive-O series as the new curriculum for Religious Education over the next four years and, according to Bishop Leahy, with the hope that it will give a new impetus for faith formation of Catholic children.

Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Real estate professionals need to have climate change on their mind, according to Billy Grayson, Executive Director for the Urban Land Institute’s Center for Sustainability and Economic Performance. On Bloomberg Environment, Grayson discussed how rising sea levels and increased risk of damage from natural disasters.The Urban Land Institute’s recent report, titled Climate Risk and Real Estate Investment Decision-Making, states that “if investors, owners, and developers don’t act to mitigate the risks that climate change poses to their portfolios, they could suffer significant losses.” The report notes that investors are reviewing their assets before it’s too late rather than waiting to see where the next disaster strikes.“The report points out that insurance policies can cover some damages, but investors can’t rely solely on insurers for protection,” said Grayson. “Since insurers reprice annually, often using historical data to do so, premiums are not always an effective way to assess future risks.”Investors are learning that they need to protect their assets through more than insurance. This means smarter construction as well as partnerships with local officials to implement climate-proofing strategies on a larger scale. The Urban Land Institute offers several practices for investors, including analyzing climate risk in annual and quarterly reports, using big data to understand how weather changes will affect pricing and valuation, and working with insurers to learn how climate change will impact premiums and coverage. Additionally, investors should keep three important lessons in mind.“First, it makes good business sense to plan for resiliency. A severe weather event will occur sooner rather than later,” said Grayson. “Second, frame the least vulnerable places as the most attractive spots for investment and development. Cities are already doing so with zoning policiesφ and financial incentives. Third, the private sector plays a vital role in future-proofing our cities. Elected officials can’t do it alone and public-private partnerships are critical.”Find the complete report from the Urban Land Institute here.

US Navy christening former Hawaii superferry in Japan

first_img navaltoday April 26, 2019, by The US Navy is set to christen two ships in two ceremonies on different sides of the world on Saturday, April 27.The first ceremony will occur in Okinawa, Japan, where high-speed transport vessel USNS Guam (T-HST 1) will be christened at 10 a.m. Japan Standard Time.Zumwalt-class guided missile destroyer, the future USS Lyndon B. Johnson (DDG 1002), will be christened at 10 a.m. EST at General Dynamics-Bath Iron Works shipyard in Bath, Maine.The future USNS Guam is one of two former Hawaii superferries acquired by the Navy from the Maritime Administration in 2012. Its sister ship, formerly known as USNS Puerto Rico (HST-2), concluded service in December 2016 and its name was assigned to future USNS Puerto Rico (T-EPF-11), a Spearhead-class expeditionary fast transport ship which shares a lot of its design with the superferries. Both ship classes were designed by Australian shipbuilder Austal.USNS Guam is named to honor the long-standing historical and military relationship between Guam and the United States. She will be the fourth ship to bear the name.Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United States of America to the Republic of Korea Harry B. Harris Jr. will be the principal speaker, and Mrs. Bruni Bradley, a 25-year Navy veteran and wife of Harris, will serve as the ship’s sponsor.“This ship honors the island of Guam and the important contributions Guamanians have made to our nation and our Navy and Marine Corps team,” said Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer. “For decades to come, USNS Guam and its crew will carry on the Guamanian tradition of service by providing our commanders with much needed high-speed sealift mobility and agility.”The ship is preceded in service by the patrol gunboat USS Guam (PG 43), which was renamed Wake in 1941 and captured by the Japanese later that year, the Alaska-class large cruiser USS Guam (CB 2) in service 1944-1947, and the Iwo Jima-class amphibious assault ship USS Guam (LPH 9) in service 1965-1998.
