FaviconAntarctic ice shelf crack is moving at record speeds, poised to cleave off massive iceberg any minute 28 Jun 2017, 11:36 am

Antarctic ice shelf crack is moving at record speeds, poised to cleave off massive iceberg any minuteA crack spreading inexorably across the Larsen C Ice Shelf in northwest Antarctica has surged forward at record rates, bringing the ice shelf closer to cleaving off an iceberg roughly the size of Delaware. If this occurs, it would be one of the largest icebergs ever observed and could leave the ice shelf behind it in a precarious state, more vulnerable to melting from both relatively mild ocean waters encroaching on the ice from underneath, as well as increasing air temperatures melting ice from above.   SEE ALSO: A huge ice crack in Antarctica grew 11 miles in 6 days, and a giant iceberg is coming While scientists have said it is not clear that global warming is behind this particular iceberg, the Antarctic Peninsula, where the Larsen C Ice Shelf is located, is one of the most rapidly warming areas in Antarctica, rivaling temperature increases seen in the Arctic. The scientists from Project MIDAS, which is funded by UK-based research institutions, are using satellite observations to determine the progress that the rift in the floating ice shelf is making. In some places, the fissure is 1,500 feet wide, which is about 600 feet wider than a typical Manhattan avenue block.  The recent image (right) highlights a significant acceleration over those three days. Comparison of speeds between Sentinel-1 image mosaics in early and late June 2017.Image: Project midas/esaIn a June 28 blog post, the scientists report: "...The soon-to-be-iceberg part of [the] Larsen C Ice Shelf has tripled in speed to more than ten meters per day between 24th and 27th June 2017." This means that the crack has moved at least 33 feet per day during the course of this 4-day period.  This is "the highest speed ever recorded on this ice shelf," according to the researchers. Predicting the exact date that the iceberg will cleave off from the Antarctic continent is tricky, however, since it still remains attached to the ice shelf, but just barely.  "The iceberg remains attached to the ice shelf, but its outer end is moving at the highest speed ever recorded on this ice shelf," researchers wrote. "We still can’t tell when calving will occur — it could be hours, days or weeks — but this is a notable departure from previous observations." The satellite scientists are depending on to detect changes in the progression of the fissure is known as Sentinel-1, a project of the European Space Agency. This satellite is able to detect subtle changes in ground movements and is used for both studying melting glaciers and ice shelves as well as earthquakes and other geological phenomena. According to Project MIDAS scientists, the most recent data do not cover the tip of the ice rift, but a low resolution image taken just after midnight on June 28 "shows clearly that the iceberg remains attached to the ice shelf at its western end — for now." Collapse of Larsen B Ice Shelf in 2002.Image: NASA Collapse of Larsen B Ice Shelf in 2002.Image: nasa While the calving of large icebergs from Antarctica and Greenland is typical, with or without human-caused global warming, what is happening at the Larsen C Ice Shelf is concerning to scientists studying how Antarctica is responding to a warming planet.  The Project MIDAS team has published research showing that when the fissure in the ice shelf causes the iceberg to calve, the ice shelf will lose more than 10 percent of its area, and leave its front at its most retreated position on record. It's important to note that the iceberg itself will not raise global sea levels, since it is already floating as part of the ice shelf, sticks out into the Southern Ocean. "This event will fundamentally change the landscape of the Antarctic Peninsula," the researchers wrote in their blog post.  The new position of the ice front, which is where the floating ice shelf meets the land-based ice behind it, is likely to be less stable than the previous configuration. This could speed Larsen C's demise, and make the ice sheet follow the Larsen B Ice Shelf, which disintegrated in 2002. The collapse of Larsen B actually inspired the opening scene of the film, The Day After Tomorrow.  A study published in 2015 showed that a reshaped Larsen C Ice Shelf that is missing the Delaware-sized chunk of ice will be much less stable than it has been.  Ice shelves across West Antarctica and Greenland are melting from increasing air and sea temperatures. This is raising alarm bells in the science community, since such floating sections of ice serve as doorstops for the land-based glaciers behind them, and when the ice shelves erode or break apart, they can cause the land ice to flow into the sea.  As land ice melts more rapidly, it is raising sea levels, threatening coastal cities worldwide.  It's not clear how much of a role global warming is playing in forming and propelling the Larsen C rift, considering that such events can occur naturally. There is some evidence showing that downslope winds may be spreading above average air temperatures across the ice shelf.  However, the Antarctic Peninsula as a whole, where Larsen C is located, is one of the most rapidly warming areas of the continent.

It’s not just you: CNN, New York Times, Reddit, and other sites are all downA strange outage has struck a number of extremely popular websites this morning, bringing The New York Times, CNN, Reddit, Pinterest, Etsy, and Amazon to their knees in many areas of the country. The downtime is slamming the coasts particularly hard, with huge numbers of reports coming in from both the East Coast as well as Southern California. The issue appears to be linked to the cloud hosting service Fastly, which supports the backends of all these major web destinations, and has been dealing with a "global event." The error manifests itself in failed page loads and a number of different errors ranging from "Maximum threads" to simple "Could not load" notifications. "Fastly is reporting a global event on our network at this time; multiple teams are responding and investigating," the company's first notice of downtime reads. The company followed up by noting that the it identified the issue and was working on implementing a fix, while monitoring the results. The company notes on its Customers page that it supports many of the sites currently dealing with page load errors and other issues, including NYT, Pinterest, Reddit, Wired, and Business Insider. When the unseen companies that support the entire structure of major websites like these experience downtime it can be a serious issue for everyone involved. Depending on the length of downtime, the cost can be absolutely devastating, but it appears that in this case the company has identified and fixed the issue in a rather rapid manner.

The iPhone is no longer the fastest phone in the world

A new type of smartphone face-off has become increasingly popular over the past couple years. In an effort to measure real-world performance, YouTube vloggers have devised an unscientific test that compares the speeds of two phones. In a nutshell, they have a preset list of apps that they open in succession once to see how quickly a smartphone loads the apps. Then, they open all the apps again in the same order to see how quickly a smartphone can recall them from memory.

Ever since this new breed of smartphone speed tests emerged, one line of devices has been unbeatable. Despite seemingly never quite measuring up on paper in terms of specs, Apple's iPhones continued to trounce any and all Android comers. But now, for the first time ever, an Android phone has finally topped Apple's latest iPhone to steal the crown and become the fastest phone in the world.

We typically try not to spoil the ending when we post about these real-world speed tests, though in the past the ending has always been obvious. Regardless of which new Android flagship phone faces off with the iPhone, it always ends up getting embarrassed. In fact, we've even seen brand new Android powerhouses lose to previous-generation iPhone models in the past.

On Tuesday evening, however, the unthinkable finally happened. Apple's latest iPhone model, the iPhone 7 Plus, was pitted against the just-released OnePlus 5 in one of these real world speed tests. The race was a close one. While the iPhone 7 Plus was able to win the first "lap," albeit narrowly, the OnePlus 5 and its whopping 8GB of RAM blew past Apple's iPhone while recalling apps from memory in the second lap. In the end, the OnePlus 5 took the crown.

It might be considered a cruel twist of fate that the Android phone to finally supplant Apple's iPhone as the world's fastest phone is a handset that copied the iPhone 7 Plus so blatantly, both inside and out. We suppose that's just the way the cookie crumbles. The full speed test video is embedded below.

China's verdant 'forest city' will fight pollution with a million plantsIf tree-covered skyscrapers act like enormous air filters, this cluster of buildings will be a clean air oasis. China has broken ground on a "forest city" in the southern city of Liuzhou. The development, which will span two-thirds of a mile along the Liujiang River, involves blanketing offices, apartments, hotels, and schools with more than a million plants and about 40,000 trees. SEE ALSO: How drones are helping to plant trees The verdant towers will help soak up urban air pollution, produce clean oxygen, and boost local biodiversity. The greenery also provides shade on sunny days and acts as an insulating blanket during winter, allowing tenants to use less heating and electricity. Liuzhou Forest City will span 175 hectares, or 0.67 miles, along the Liujiang River.Image: stefano boeri architettiIf the concept sounds familiar, that's because these buildings are the work of Stefano Boeri Architetti, the same architecture firm behind the two "vertical forest" buildings planned for Nanjing in eastern China.  Liuzhou city officials commissioned the Italian company to build the development, which will host about 30,000 people and be connected to the main Liuzhou city — population 3.8 million — via a fast-rail line used by electric cars. The forest city, now under construction, is expected to be completed by 2020, the Milan-based architects confirmed by email. 'Vertical forest' buildings in the Liuzhou development.Image: stefano boeri architettiThe development is a flashy but tiny effort to combat the dangerous smog and toxic air pollution that's choking China's industrialized cities. It comes as China is building more wind and solar power than any country in the world to slash emissions from coal plants, factories, and vehicles, and to combat climate change. Stefano Boeri's firm, which recently completed two verdant towers in Milan, is planning to expand into other smoggy cities, including China's Shijiazhuang, Guizhou, Shanghai, and Chongqing. In the Liuzhou Forest City, buildings, parks, and gardens will absorb almost 10,000 tons of carbon dioxide and 57 tons of fine dust pollutants per year, while producing about 900 tons of oxygen, the architects said in a press release.  By comparison, the two green towers in Nanjing will absorb 25 tons of carbon dioxide and produce 0.06 tons of oxygen.  An electric railway will link the 'forest city' to the main Liuzhou city.Image: stefano boeri architettiBeyond sucking up toxic air, the urban greenery is also expected to stifle noise pollution and support biodiversity by providing a habitat for the local birds, insects, and small animals that inhabit Liuzhou.
