Rainier unleashed the Electron Mudflow. This lahar, a river of mud, began on the western slopes of the mountain, taking with it trees as big as three meters in diameter, and swept down the Puyallup River to the Puget Sound. The rock in this area suffers from structural weaknesses as snow and ice interact with hot rocks, which may have caused the lahar. The process dammed the Kapowsin tributary and created the lake we see today. Fred Hilgert and his wife are credited with establishing the first homestead on Lake Kapowsin. This was short-lived, as a railroad was built through their backyard and forced their move away from the shoreline.

The rise in water levels has contributed to the hippo attacks Image: Gallo Images Get daily news updates directly to your inbox Subscribe Thank you for subscribingWe have more newsletters Show me See our privacy notice Could not subscribe, try again laterInvalid Email A tourist and a fisherman were killed in separate attacks by rampaging hippos in different parts of the same lake. The incidents took place just a few kilometres apart in Lake Naivasha, west of Nairobi, Kenya, this weekend.
Chinese man Chang Ming Chuang, 66, was taking photos alongside his colleague when he got too close to the hippo. He was mauled and was quickly rushed to hospital “bleeding profusely” but died while undergoing treatment. Witness Joel Ochieng told Standard Media in Kenya the man got too close to the animal which turned against, him biting him on the chest. The incidents took place just a few kilometres apart in Lake Naivasha Image: In the second case, a fisherman was attacked by another hippo a few kilometres away.
He was also bitten on the chest and his injuries were so serious he died within minutes.

These lures are worth thousands and thousands of dollars. You could buy all the tackle you’d ever desired with that amount of scratch, or better yet, buy a spiffin’ new boat. So what makes these vintage lures so valuable? In general, the value of an antique fishing lure is determined by its scarcity, beauty, craftsmanship and condition. The five lures highlighted in this slideshow are all super rare, and most of them were made more than a century ago. The auction company said, “It’s Holy Grail of fishing lures.

This page was last updated on March 19, Posted a full survey report about this waterfall By The Numbers The information presented in this table is meant to help identify and clarify the physical aspects of the waterfall for comparative purposes. While we try to ensure this information is as accurate as possible, sometimes it will prove necessary to either estimate or flat out guess at certain characteristics where either enough information isn’t readily available, is not known, or we were not able to confirm a given trait upon surveying.
This information may be changed at any given time to ensure accuracy. Total Height The Total Height listed for the waterfall represents the difference in elevation from the top of the uppermost drop, to the bottom of the lowermost drop of the waterfall, including all stretches of interstitial stream in between. Stream between two tiers of a waterfall is counted in its overall height regardless of whether or not that section of the stream would be legitimately considered a waterfall on its own right, were it to be isolated.
Waterfalls with only one drop will of have the height of only the single drop listed here. Tallest Drop The Tallest Drop figure represents the height of the largest single drop within a multi-stepped waterfall. Waterfalls with only one drop will have the total height of the waterfall repeated here. Num of Drops The Number of Drops in a waterfall is a tally of the total number of distinct drops which make up the waterfall.
Stretches of interstitial stream in between two or more distinct drops of a single waterfall are NOT considered to be distinct drops of the waterfall unless the section of stream in question would otherwise qualify as a waterfall were it to be isolated. Avg Width The Average Width of the waterfall represents the breadth of the waterfall from bank to bank under typical flow conditions, or if the waterfall has been Cataloged, under the conditions which it was most thoroughly surveyed.
Often this number will be approximated because of a lack of approachability to many waterfalls.

Some went frog wild in Eufaula State Championship Posted: Well the rain did not show up until weigh-in on Saturday but the frogs did- both days of the October 18 and 19 tournament on Lake Eufaula. Eighty-six boats with competitors from Alabama B. Nation affiliated clubs from across the state were vying for the State Championship, a spot on the State Team and a high finish in the 35 cash positions. The bass anglers in general found fishing a little tough- but not all.

The oldest fossil “proto-frog” appeared in the early Triassic of Madagascar, but molecular clock dating suggests their origins may extend further back to the Permian , million years ago. Frogs are widely distributed, ranging from the tropics to subarctic regions, but the greatest concentration of species diversity is found in tropical rainforests. There are approximately 4, recorded species, making them among the most diverse vertebrate groups.
The body plan of an adult frog is generally characterized by a stout body, protruding eyes , cleft tongue , limbs folded underneath and the absence of a tail. Besides living in fresh water and on dry land, the adults of some species are adapted for living underground or in trees. The skin of the frog is glandular , with secretions ranging from distasteful to toxic.
Warty species of frog tend to be called toads. Frog warts are elevations in the skin where glandular toxins tend to concentrate. The distinction between frogs and toads is based on informal naming conventions concentrating on the warts rather than taxonomy or evolutionary history; some toads are more closely related to frogs than other toads.

The History of Cloning The History of Cloning Lost in the midst of all the buzz about cloning is the fact that cloning is nothing new: The landmark examples below will take you on a journey through time, where you can learn more about the history of cloning. Dreisch showed that by merely shaking two-celled sea urchin embryos, it was possible to separate the cells.
Once separated, each cell grew into a complete sea urchin. This experiment showed that each cell in the early embryo has its own complete set of genetic instructions and can grow into a full organism.
A frog is any member of a diverse and largely carnivorous group of short-bodied, tailless amphibians composing the order Anura (Ancient Greek ἀν-, without + οὐρά, tail).The oldest fossil “proto-frog” appeared in the early Triassic of Madagascar, but molecular clock dating suggests their origins may extend further back to the Permian, million years ago.
Submitted by Staff writer Lake Titicaca is a geological wonder formed during the pre-ice age about sixty million years ago. The lake was formed when massive earthquakes shook the Andes Mountains splitting the range in two and forming a hollow that eventually got filled with water from the melting glaciers, creating bodies of water and ultimately rivers and the immense Lake Titicaca.
Lake Titicaca feeds from melting glacier water According to one of the legends of the origin of the Incas , the first Inca Manco Capac and his wife Mama Ocllo emerged from the depths of Lake Titicaca on the sacred rock on Isla Del Sol to look for a place to build an empire. Lake Titicaca was a sacred lake to the Incas. The Puraka culture settled in this fertile land around BC and a millennium later the Tiwuanaku culture emerged and spread throughout the Altiplano and into Bolivia.
Warlike tribes like the Aymaras and the Collas emerged only to be absorbed by the Incas. It was the Inca civilization that unified the many cultures and spread into this land forming the Inca Empire. The current local population is the Uros people who have populated this territory for hundreds of years, they come from the Aymara and the Quechua populations and they speak the ancient language of Aymara.
The Tiwanaku culture thrived in this area before they were absorbed by the Incas. It is believed that the name Titicaca derived from the Aymara language titi: Titis used to live on the rocky islands of the lake.

Tadpole stage of Haswell’s frog Juvenile frog in transition between tadpole and frog Tadpoles are young amphibians that usually live in the water, though a few tadpoles are semi-terrestrial Indirana beddomii and Thoropa miliaris and terrestrial Indirana semipalmata and Adenomera andreae. They do not usually have arms or legs until the transition to adulthood, and typically have a large, flattened tail with which they swim by lateral undulation , similar to most fish.
As a tadpole matures, it most commonly metamorphosizes by gradually growing limbs usually the back legs first, followed by the front legs and then most commonly in the case of frogs outwardly absorbing its tail by apoptosis.
The old fishing pier out on the end of Cypress Lake has just fallen under the magic of another Catfish Moon. It was the favorite hangout for three best friends when they were kids—skipping school, skinny dipping and even experiencing the mysteries of kissing girls. Now Curley, Gordon and Frog are older, and they have tasted the bitterness of life as well as the sweetness, and the pressures and problems that come with middle age have eroded the closeness between Frog and Gordon.
The final straw comes when Frog discovers that Gordon is dating his ex-wife. Curley, the “big brother” of the bunch, in an attempt to recapture the friendship and settle all disputes, convinces Frog and Gordon to go on an overnight fishing trip like old times. On the pier, the weight of adulthood is lifted by laughter and their love of fishing, and the three guys discover that their friendship was never really lost.
However, in the midst of catching the biggest fish of all time, life brings them back to a painful reality. The poignant resolution of the play brings Gordon and Frog to the realization that life is too precious and too short to let true friendship get away.

The lake is surrounded by Andean mountain ridges and slopes varying in altitude between 4, and 4, meters or 13, and 13, feet above sea level. The lake itself is located on a high plateau ranging from 3, to 4, meters or 11, to 13, feet above sea level. Lake Titicaca is known for the deep blue beauty of its water. At this altitude temperatures average less than 15C or 59F all year round and it remains constant throughout the year. Temperatures do not drop at night or in winter as much as in other places at similar altitudes.
Both lakes are connected by the Strait of Tiquina. The bright luminescent sunlight permeates the highland Altiplano making it feel spiritual and magical. It is necessary to bring sun block as the sunlight is very intense in high altitude and the rays bounding off the lake can cause severe sunburn. To the local population the lake has mystical properties as it is surrounded by fertile land in the otherwise dry and windswept Altiplano.
The Inca Civilization considered the lake as a sacred place.

Some are excavated by private professional firms that specialize in digging sites when federally funded projects impact cultural resources. The idea is not to stop the building of the road or other project but to document the historic or prehistoric resources before they are destroyed. These private companies are contracted to dig, document and report on what they find.
The site is now under water but before the area was flooded this site, along with several others, was excavated and documented.

Raft of totora on Lake Titicaca in the island of the Sun Bolivia Uros The “Floating Islands” are small human-made islands constructed by the Uros or Uru people from layers of cut totora , a thick buoyant reed that grows abundantly in the shallows of Lake Titicaca. According to legend, the Uru people originated in the Amazon and migrated to the area of Lake Titicaca in the pre-Columbian era , where they were oppressed by the local population and were unable to secure land of their own.
There are two mountain peaks, called Pachatata Father Earth and Pachamama Mother Earth , and ancient ruins on the top of both peaks. The hillsides that rise up from the lake are terraced and planted with wheat , potatoes , and vegetables. Most of the small fields are worked by hand. Long stone fences divide the fields, and cattle and sheep graze on the hillsides. There are no cars on the island and no hotels.
Since machines are not allowed on the island, all agriculture is done by hand. A few small stores sell basic goods, and there is a health clinic and 6 schools. Electricity was produced by a generator and provided limited power a couple of hours each day, but with the rising price of the petroleum, they no longer use the generator.
