Total mess on Dallas Airport: Flights canceled, passengers delayed due to the bad weather

Dallas 1,000 Flights Cancelled - A rain storm that had hit Dallas in Texas has caused quite a problem after the storm passed. With the temperatures down so low, the area hit by the storm immediately turned into an ice fest.

Due to the iced roads, more than 1,000 flights have been cancelled at the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

David Magana, the spokesperson for the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, has spoken up about the Dallas 1,000 flights cancelled. More than 5,000 travelers were forced to stay the night. Cots, toiletries, and blankets were provided. A concession stand was also left overnight.

The Saturday chaos of Dallas 1,000 flights cancelled certainly breaks the record of 600 flights nixed in the past. For passengers of American Airlines, the usual flight from Dallas to Oklahoma of only an hour had been extended to more than nine hours due to the de-icing of the roads at the airport.

By the looks of it, the Dallas 1,000 flights cancelled might not be the last incidence. Transportation officials and even the National Weather Service have warned of another rain storm leading to iced roads. The said storm would bring rain to Texas, while snow is expected to hit northern Ohio Valley and southern Plains. A winter weather advisory for Dallas-Fort Worth area has been issued.

As for the approximate number of flights nixed, the Dallas 1,000 flights cancelled due to the de-icing involved 600 flights cancelled from American Airlines on Saturday, and 700 flights on Friday. Flightaware.com states that approximately 974 flights were cancelled Saturday morning in the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

Florida hit by floods, heavy rain and thunderstorm

Much of the Sunshine State is under clouds or water.

Heavy rain, thunderstorms and flooding have covered swaths of Miami and brought storm warnings as far north as Jacksonville, the National Weather Service reported Saturday.

Howling winds and pelting rain flooded streets and neighborhoods in Broward and Miami-Dade counties, the Miami Herald reported.

Flood advisories were issued in both counties.

Palm Beach also experienced flooding with six inches of rain falling Saturday in just a few hours.

For the second consecutive day, golf play was delayed at the The Honda Classic in Palm Beach County.

Interstate 95 in the Stuart area was snarled by the heavy rains and the speed limit was dropped to 30 mph.

There were no reports of injuries or deaths.

In Jacksonville, clouds and fog were expected to drop temperatures to the high 40s.

Rain was expected to lessen overnight, with scattered showers falling on Sunday.

From sun to rain, Australia's crazy weather

Sydney beachgoers went from sunning themselves in sweltering 37 degree heat to running from a storm which cleared eastern suburbs beaches in a matter of minutes.

The spectacular storm, which swept up from the south through the city accompanied by 90km/h winds, and over 100km/h in Campbelltown, brought bursts of heavy rain, thunder and lightning strikes.

The storm, which swept through the city about 3.45pm, bought spectacularly dark clouds, short bursts of heavy rain and strong winds, but most notable was its speed.

"In an hour and a half we had 180 calls," said Fire and Rescue NSW superintendent Paul Johnson. The calls mostly related to numerous, smaller incidents, he said.


Coogee and Clovelly beach were both evacuated because of the storm, which travelled up from the Illawarra and continued to make its way north along to coast to the Central Tablelands.

It also delayed trains in the afternoon as lightning strikes disrupted signalling equipment.

Revellers at the Good Life music festival in Randwick were affected, as the inclement weather caused the cancellation of the concert. Police were pleased with the way concertgoers responded.

The rainy Sunday evening however, was not a portent to gloomy weather and storms for the rest of the week.

The Bureau of Meteorology has forecast a cloudy Monday, but sunny weather in the high 20s with some possibility of showers for the rest of the week.

CH HSS, geomagnetic storm in progress

Earth is under the influence of a southern polar coronal hole high speed stream (CH HSS) which is stirring up geomagnetic storms.

Geomagnetic K-index of 5 (G1 - Minor geomagnetic storm) threshold was reached at 01:45 UTC today.

Area of impact is primarily poleward of 60 degrees Geomagnetic Latitude.

Under G1-class storm conditions, weak power grid fluctuations can occur, minor impact on satellite operations are possible, aurora may be visible at high latitudes, i.e., northern tier of the U.S. such as northern Michigan and Maine.

Potential Impacts: Area of impact primarily poleward of 60 degrees Geomagnetic Latitude.
Induced Currents - Weak power grid fluctuations can occur.
Spacecraft - Minor impact on satellite operations possible.
Aurora - Aurora may be visible at high latitudes, i.e., northern tier of the U.S. such as northern Michigan and Maine.


The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit is expected to persist at normal to moderate levels over the next three days (March 1 -3) with a chance for high levels towards the end of the forecast period due to a high speed solar wind stream effects. 

Solar wind parameters are expected to become further enhanced on March 1 and 2 as the negative polarity southern polar CH HSS moves into a more geoeffective position. Recurrence data suggests solar wind velocities in excess of 700 km/s and Bt values in excess of 20 nT could be observed during this event.


Unsettled to G1 (Minor) geomagnetic storm conditions are likely on March 1 and 2 due to effects of the recurrent negative polarity CH HSS. Quiet to active levels are expected on March 3 as CH HSS effects begin to subside.

An amazing compass for bird navigation!

Each year, the Arctic Tern travels over 40,000 miles, migrating nearly from pole to pole and back again. Other birds make similar (though shorter) journeys in search of warmer climes. 

How do these birds manage to traverse such great distances when we need a map just to make our way to the next town over?

Researchers have established that birds can sense the earth's magnetic field and use it to orient themselves. How this internal compass works, though, remains poorly understood.

Physicists at the University of Oxford are exploring one possible explanation: a magnetically sensitive protein called cryptochrome that mediates circadian rhythms in plants and animals. Blue or green light triggers electrons in the protein to produce pairs of radicals whose electron spins respond to magnetic fields. "As we vary the strength of the magnetic field, we can alter the progress of these photochemical reactions inside the protein," said lead researcher Peter Hore, who will present his work during a talk at the American Physical Society's March Meeting on Wednesday, March 4 in San Antonio, Texas.

Behavioral experiments have shown that even subtle disruptions to the magnetic field can impact birds' ability to navigate. In a study led by Henrik Mouritsen, in collaboration with Hore, robins were placed in wooden huts on campus at the University of Oldenburg in Germany. Without supplementary visual cues like the sun's position in the sky, the birds struggled to navigate. They only regained their ability to orient themselves when the huts were covered in aluminum sheeting and electrically grounded, blocking external oscillating electromagnetic noise but not the earth's static magnetic field.

The researchers concluded that even low-level electromagnetic noise in the frequency range blocked by the aluminum screens—probably coming from AM radio signals and electronic equipment running in buildings —somehow interfered with the urban robins' magnetic orientation ability.

Hore hopes that the behavioral findings in the field can inform his molecular-level work in the laboratory.

"We would like to know how such extraordinarily weak radiofrequency fields could disrupt the function of an entire sensory system in a higher vertebrate. Our feeling is that this is likely to provide key insights into the mechanism either of the magnetic compass sense or of some important process that interferes with the birds' orientation behavior," said Hore.

One explanation is that the electromagnetic noise has quantum-level effects on cryptochrome's performance. This would suggest that the radical pairs in cryptochrome preserve their quantum coherence for much longer than previously believed possible. Such a finding could have broader implications for physicists hoping to extend coherence for more efficient quantum computing.

"Physicists are excited by the idea that quantum coherence could not just occur in a living cell, but could also have been optimized by evolution. There's a possibility that lessons could be learned about how to preserve coherence for long periods of time," said Hore.






Blinds can see again with a bionic eye!

A bionic eye implant is now allowing a blind man to see the outlines of his wife after 10 years in darkness.

The implant, called a retinal prosthesis, consists of a small electronic chip that is placed at the back of the eye to send visual signals directly into the optic nerve. This bypasses the damaged cells in the man's retina.

The bionic eye doesn't have enough electrodes to recreate the details of human faces, but for the first time since he lost his vision, the man can make out the outlines of people and things, and walk without a cane.

Degenerative disease

The Minneapolis-St. Paul man, Allen Zderad, suffered from a genetic condition called retinitis pigmentosa, in which the cells in the retina that gather light gradually die. While many people who suffer from this condition experience only decreased night vision, some lose their central vision completely.

Amazingly, after 10 years living with the disease, Zderad had figured out how to continue woodworking by relying on his sense of touch and perception of spatial relationships. But he was effectively blind; he could not see his wife or his grandkids, and could only see extremely bright lights.

Zderad's grandson was getting treatment for the same genetic condition from Dr. Raymond Iezzi, Jr., an ophthalmologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Zderad's grandson mentioned that his grandfather was almost completely blind, and the doctor asked to see Zderad.

Iezzi, it turned out, was conducting a clinical trial of a bionic eye implant made by Second Sight. Zderad became the doctor's first patient to get the implant.


Bypassing photoreceptors

Though retinitis pigmentosa destroys photoreceptors, the rest of the retina, including optic nerve cells that send light signals to the brain, remain healthy.

"What we're trying to do is replace the function of these lost photoreceptors," Iezzi said in a YouTube video (above) released by the Mayo Clinic.

In January, Iezzi implanted the bionic eye by inserting the electronics and a wafer with 60 electrodes through the white of Zderad's right eye. Iezzi fixed the electronics outside the eye, then placed the wafer on the curved portion at the back of the eye, where the retina sits.

Two weeks later, the team activated the external portion of the device: a set of glasses that contain a tiny camera on the bridge of the nose and a belt-pack computer.

The glasses camera takes a picture of the world as the eye would see it, then feeds that information into the computer that Zderad wears around his waist. The computer translates that image into light signals that are then beamed through a wireless transmitter into the electrodes in the man's eye. The electrodes, in turn, transmit the light signals to the optic nerve, which relays the information to the brain.

As soon as the implant was activated, Zderad reached out to grab his wife's hands, which he could see for the first time in a decade. He even caught a glimpse of his own silhouette in a window. However, the system creates little flashes of light, rather than traditional images, so he will still need to go through physical therapy in order to better interpret the light signals coming from his implant, according to Mayo Clinic's statement on the case.

'Intermediate-mass' black hole was discovered by astronomers

Astronomers have detected a black hole embedded in the spiral arm of a galaxy 100 million light-years from Earth — but this isn't any old black hole, it belongs to an extremely elusive class that may be the 'missing link' in black hole evolution.

Using observational data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and the European Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) Network, which detects radio waves from energetic sources in the cosmos, the researchers, led by Mar Mezcua of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, were able to also deduce that this particular 'intermediate-mass black hole' (IMBH) is creating a 'dead zone' inside its host galaxy, NGC 2276.

"In paleontology, the discovery of certain fossils can help scientists fill in the evolutionary gaps between different dinosaurs," said Mezcua. "We do the same thing in astronomy, but we often have to 'dig' up our discoveries in galaxies that are millions of light years away."

Black holes are known to come in two main classes: stellar-mass black holes, which are spawned by supernovae and are around 5-30 times the mass of the sun, and supermassive black holes, which occupy the cores of most galaxies and have solar masses of millions to billions. But to understand how black holes grow, there must be some black holes that have masses between the stellar and the supermassive. After all, logic dictates that if all black holes start small and grow over time, there must be some intermediate mass black holes out there with girths that range between a few hundred to a few hundred thousand solar masses.

"Astronomers have been looking very hard for these medium-sized black holes," said co-author Tim Roberts, of the University of Durham. UK. "There have been hints that they exist, but the IMBHs have been acting like a long-lost relative that isn't interested in being found."

So when astronomers detect hints of an intermediate black hole, they pounce, and it seems that the energetic object in the spiral arm of NGC 2276 is one of these elusive mid-mass monsters.

"We found that NGC 2276-3c has traits similar to both stellar-mass black holes and supermassive black holes" said co-author Andrei Lobanov of the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany. "In other words, this object helps tie the whole black hole family together."

But this bright object, known as NGC-2276-3c, has a dark side.


Blasting up to 2,000 light-years from the black hole, a powerful radio jet penetrates through the galaxy's interstellar medium. Within this jet, up to 1,000 light-years from the black hole, there is a dramatic paucity of young stars; the jet appears to have cleared a cavity near the black hole, removing star-forming gases, snuffing out star birth.

The researchers are now trying to understand how the IMBH got there in the first place. It seems highly probable that NGC-2276-3c formed in the core of a smaller dwarf galaxy that, hundreds of millions or billions of years ago, merged with NGC 2276. In other regions of the galaxy, there appears to be a surge of star birth, which supports the idea that another galaxy may have been cannibalized.

It's studies like this that not only expose an apparently rare class of black hole, they also pose an interesting question. Is our conventional thinking about the growth of black holes correct? All known galaxies seem to have supermassive black holes in their cores, but how did they get so big? Recent research revealed a black hole of gargantuan proportions in the early universe — how did it get so big so fast? Do supermassive black holes undergo a sudden 'growth spurt' between 'stellar' and 'supermassive'? This would certainly explain why we're not spotting many intermediate-mass black holes — perhaps they simply don't stay that size for very long.

In the case of NGC-2276-3c, however, we know one thing, don't expect to be living in the neighborhood of that black hole, it's a galactic dead zone.
