Meteor shower

Post  taixyz1992 on Thu Dec 16, 2010 4:49 pm

A meteor shower is a celestial event in which a number of meteors are observed to radiate from one point in the night sky. These meteors are caused by streams of cosmic debris called meteoroids entering Earth's atmosphere at extremely high speeds on parallel trajectories. Most meteors are smaller than a grain of sand, so almost all of them disintegrate and never hit the Earth's surface. Intense or unusual meteor showers are known as meteor outbursts and meteor storms, which may produce greater than 1,000 meteors an hour

Amanda Knox will learn later if she is to be granted a review of the forensic evidence used to convict her of the murder of student Meredith Kercher.

The 23-year-old American is trying to overturn her conviction after being jailed last year for 26 years for the killing in Perugia, Italy, in 2007.

Miss Kercher, 21, from Coulsdon, south London, was found with her throat cut.

A review would include the disputed DNA evidence found on a knife and on the clasp of Miss Kercher's bra.

Knox's former boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, was jailed for 25 years for the murder. He is appealing together with Knox.

The original trial heard the pair had cornered Miss Kercher after starting a sex game with Ivorian drug dealer Rudy Guede, who was jailed for 30 years for the killing, although that was reduced to 16 years on appeal.

The Leeds University student's semi-naked body was found partially covered by a duvet in her bedroom in the house she shared with Knox in Perugia.

Knox's defence team maintains the DNA evidence in the case was inconclusive and argued it may have been contaminated.

It particularly focuses on disputed traces of DNA found on the knife the prosecution said was used in the murder, and on the clasp of Miss Kercher's bra.

Knox's parents, from Seattle, have said they are hopeful their daughter will be released once judges in Italy have re-examined the evidence.

However, if her conviction is upheld, her sentence could be increased.

A decision is not expected until some time next year.

As in the original trial, the verdict will be decided by the judge, a fellow magistrate and six jurors.

Damage from the Perfect

Post  be_map1512 on Tue Nov 01, 2011 3:13 pm

Damage from the Perfect Storm totaled over $200 million (1991 USD)[1] and the death toll was thirteen. Most of the damage occurred while the storm was extratropical, after waves up to 30 ft (10 m) struck the coastline from Canada to Florida and southeastward to Puerto Rico. In Massachusetts, where damage was heaviest, over 100 homes were destroyed or severely damaged. To the north, more than 100 homes were affected in Maine, including the vacation home of then-President George H. W. Bush. More than 38,000 people were left without power, and along the coast high waves inundated roads and buildings. In portions of New England, damage was worse than Hurricane Bob had caused two months strippers
