Scripps researchers tackle the holy grail of climate change modeling -- What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but what happens on the way there is a different story. As imaged by Lynn Russell, a professor of atmospheric chemistry at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego, and her team, air blown by winds between San Diego and Las Vegas gives the road to Sin City a distinctive look. http://explorations.ucsd.edu/Features/2009/Fine_Details/

Learn how to identify the type of mike you are given for your talk, and learn how to handle it to avoid volume changes and popping. Audibility is as important as slide legibility. Audibility is affected by microphone pick-up patterns, and microphone handling.

Scientists From Across the Globe Warn of Drastic Water Shortages

submitted by: ucsandiego
In the Sierra Neveda, snowpack will shrink by 30 to 90 percent by the end of the century. On the other side of the planet, in the Himalayas, about 70 percent of glaciers are set to disappear. These changes are both caused by climate change and will lead to dramatic water shortages for hundreds of millions of people across the globe, scientists said during a press conference Wednesday at UC San Diego. http://ucsdnews.ucsd.edu/thisweek/2009/05/11_icemelt.asp
