Earlier this year, slight tremors were felt around the Mt. Kenya region and it was strange for everyone, since the place has been relatively stable. Could the extinct mountain be turning active? Karen explores this possibility to at least give you a refresher course on the geography you already forgot.
Harder, more scratch resistant and very expensive, sapphire is a wonder material that could be coming to an iPhone screen near you.
Australian oil exploration firm Pancontinental Oil & Gas NL has confirmed an “historic” discovery of oil in an exploratory well sunk off the Lamu coast in southern Kenya.
In The Geology of Game of Thrones, a group of geologists has created a geologic map of Westeros and Essos, as well as an invented geologic history of the planet on which George R. R. Martin’s epic takes place.
We all know gravity is the force from the centre of the earth that pulls all objects to its core. (I am assuming you are well informed). You could think of it like an orange with its centre pulling everything towards itself, both within and without. (A super super strong orange, I would say). Here are some interesting facts about gravity you wouldn’t want to miss on
The enjoyment of a glass of beer may be received by many senses: the sight may be attracted first by the clarity of a pale ale or the rich creamy head of a stout. As the glass is raised to the lips the aroma of the beverage, possibly the bouquet of the essential oils of the hops, may excite the nostrils. Then, as the liquid flows over the taste buds at the back of the mouth, and further volatile products diffuse into the back of the nose, the flavour of the beverage is perceived. Finally, the beer enters the body, where the alcohol is rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream and exerts its well-known physiological and psychological effects.
Ever heard the saying “Two wrongs don’t make a right”? Well, according to environmental research and analysis, this saying may prove to be quite inappropriate for all in this day and age; all who live under the UV shelter of the ozone.
The ozone layer, as we know it, is an envelope of O3 blanketing the earth’s atmosphere…well, for the most part of it. The O3 molecules that compose the ozone are formed through the breakdown of O2 gas molecules by UV energy.
Geology can be important for the growers of grapes for wines; it can be ignored by the consumer. Most of the arguments for the importance of ‘terroir’, which includes geology, have been along the lines: ‘‘this wine has one flavour that wine has another flavour, yet they are made from the same grape variety’’. The difference must be something in the ground, i.e., it depends on the geology.
The entire shale fracking endeavour began as a somewhat quixotic, patriotic ambition within fledgling federal energy research programs. Scientists had long understood the geology of shales and knew there was gas to be had But everyone assumed it was unreachable.
we can always expect Museveni to fall back on some populist measures when elections draw closer – whether it’s releasing another rap or the more traditional hand-outs at public or youth rallies
