UPDATE Rescuers bring injured kayaker to safety

first_imgWhen kayaker Joseph Grudger, 19, rode down a 60-foot waterfall in Gifford Pinchot National Forest late Wednesday morning, the splashy, rolling fun turned to pain. He’d injured himself, possibly his back.Two fellow kayakers came to help, said Chief Ben Peeler with North Country Emergency Medical Service, based in Yacolt.“They got him out of the kayak and laid him down on the shoreline,” Peeler said.With no cellphone coverage there, one friend drove to an area to make a 911 call; the other stayed with Grudger.The call came in to the Skamania County Sheriff’s Office about 11 a.m., said 911 dispatcher and assistant spokeswoman Jacqueline Garrity.The friends were in a remote area, in the Lower Falls region of the North Fork of the Lewis River, 30 miles east of Cougar.Sheriff’s deputies were called to help, as were members of Skamania County Fire District 6, North Country EMS and its all-volunteer Volcano Rescue Team.‘High-angle’ rescueGrudger was “conscious and alert through the whole thing” and talking, Peeler said. Rescuers fastened him in a rescue basket.The team, trained and equipped to use rope systems, set up one system to hoist the basket about 15 feet vertically to the top of a ledge, an operation called a “high-angle” rescue. The hoisters themselves were fastened to a rope system uphill, Peeler said.last_img read more

Weather Eye Rainfree days to continue but temps may drop

first_imgIt keeps going on and on and on — the wonderful autumn weather overhead. No end in sight of our sunny and rainless days. Yes, some days with more low clouds and fog on the horizon, but still dry.Some forecast models are hinting at rain as the month of November rolls in but aside from that not much change. It was in the lower 70s Monday afternoon thanks again to downslope easterly winds. One change possible a week from now is we could get east winds as cold air slides off to the east of us. Then we would have colder east winds fanning across the area. If it was a couple of months from now we may be feeling Arctic air. More winterlike.The white mantle of snow on both Mount St. Helens and Mount Hood is melting away, quickly retreating up the slopes. We will have to reload the snowpack come November when the weather pattern changes. If long-range charts are correct we could get some good rain and mountain snows the first half of November, but that of course is way out there. But we all know the weather will change so soak up the rays while you can.I have been asked by a few snowboarders if we will have some good snows in the Cascades this winter. I think so; skiing for Thanksgiving is on the agenda. We’ll see what some experts have to say about it Saturday at OMSI.At my weather station in Salmon Creek I have only had measurable rainfall on seven days this month, with the bulk of it falling Oct. 2 and 8. That means 14 dry days as of Monday and if we make it through Halloween it will go in the record books with 24 rainless days. Not bad for October.last_img read more

Troopers Investigate Aniak Infant Death

first_imgAn infant was found dead Sunday morning in the village of Aniak, reportedly after sleeping on the couch with her mother.An Alaska State trooper report said officers, volunteer fire and EMS crews responded to a home after a report that the infant wasn’t breathing. They tried resuscitate the girl but were unsuccessful. The 5-month-old was transported to a clinic where she was pronounced dead about an hour later.Troopers said it appears the mother fell asleep with the child on the couch around 2:30 am. A relative stopped by the house after 7 and woke the mother, who discovered her child was not breathing.Last month in Emmonak a one-year-old girl died in similar circumstances. A trooper report said that baby stopped breathing after sleeping on the couch with her father, who had been drinking that night.Experts say bed sharing, especially on sofas or couches, raises the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or SIDS, often by the larger person accidentally suffocating the child during the night.last_img read more

Researchers uncover tomatos genetic history

first_img © 2014 , Nature Genetics Two years after the sequencing of the genome of one variety of tomato, scientists have sequenced the genomes of 360 tomato varieties. By analyzing the relationships among these genomes, Sanwen Huang of the Institute of Vegetables and Flowers at the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences and his colleagues have reconstructed the genetic history of the tomato, from its origins as a pea-sized wild plant growing in South America’s Andes region to the many varieties found worldwide today. The research appears in Nature. More information: Nature Genetics (2014) DOI: 10.1038/ng.3117 Explore further Journal information: Naturecenter_img Citation: Researchers uncover tomato’s genetic history (2014, October 14) retrieved 18 August 2019 from Wild tomato species focus of antioxidant study The tomato is the world’s leading vegetable crop. In 2012, global harvests yielded more than 162 million tons of tomatoes, worth more than 55 billion dollars. Understanding how the tomato’s genetic profile affects its taste, size and hardiness could increase consumer satisfaction while making the tomato industry even more profitable. That same year, Huang was part of a team of researchers who sequenced the genome of the Heinz 1706 variety of tomato, a processing tomato used to make ketchup. Huang and his current team knew that to improve breeding processes, scientists must understand the genetic profiles of the many different tomato varieties that exist today and the relationships between them. The researchers wanted to learn how the tomato genome has changed since the fruit was first domesticated, and then transported around the globe and bred for commercial purposes. They sequenced the genomes of 333 varieties of red tomato, 10 varieties of wild tomato and 17 modern commercial hybrids. They studied the change in the tomato’s size over time and found that the increase in tomato size since its domestication had involved a two-step process. At first, selection for size, the primary purpose of tomato breeding, resulted in the creation of cherry tomatoes. Big-fruited tomatoes appeared later.Huang’s team was able to identify the genetic differences between processing tomatoes and big-fruited tomatoes, which consumers eat fresh. Processing tomatoes are hardier, with more soluble fruit content and lycopene content, than big-fruited tomatoes. The researchers found the genetic signature for the processing tomato, with the genes responsible for its phenotype located on chromosome 5.They also located the gene that makes some tomatoes pink on chromosome 1. While globally, red-fruited tomatoes are most popular, pink-fruited tomatoes are very popular in China and Japan.Despite the wide variation in tomato phenotypes that exist today, Huang and his colleagues found that there is, in fact, very little genetic variation among the modern tomato varieties. Human selection has fixed a large proportion of the tomato genome. This document is subject to copyright.

500yrold Princess Mummy Incan Girl Finally Returns Home to Bolivia

first_imgAbout one hundred and thirty years ago the Michigan State University Museum received a gift of a five hundred year old princess mummy, a young Incan girl from Bolivia.  During her life she lived near the modern city of La Paz and has finally returned home with the assistance of the U.S. Embassy and William A. Lovis, an emeritus professor of anthropology at Michigan State University. The mummy, called Ñusta, a Quechua Incan word for “Princess”, was returned to the Bolivian Embassy in January of 2019 by US Art, known for its fastidious transportation of fine art objects, and then taken to South America to be reburied in her homeland.Dr. Lovis emphasizes that it is not known if she was really a princess but the way in which she was buried may offer a clue.  Ñusta was found in a chullpa or stone tomb with offerings of several different types of plants, pouches, a pair of sandals, beads and a small clay jar according to federalnewsnetwork.  She was found dressed in garments made from the hair of either a llama or alpaca both of which are native to the region and have been domesticated for hundreds of years. She has feathers in her hands; still has a few teeth and her dark hair looks as though it was just been styled and plaited into braids.Known as Ñusta, a Quechua word for “Princess,” the mummy amazes many because of its excellent state of preservation: Its black braids seem recently combed and its hands still cling to small feathers:— Local 12/WKRC-TV (@Local12) August 24, 2019She was found in a sitting position as though she had been propped up in a corner with her legs tucked up and her hands in her lap.  Dr. Lovis claims that chullpa were reserved for the elite members of the tribe.  Ñusta appears to have been about eight years old when she died and it is very possible she was a religious sacrifice which would further elevate her status.Ethnically she was Aymaran, from a civilization that appeared after the fall of the Tiahuanaco people and thrived between 1200 to the late 1400s making her lifetime very close to when Columbus sailed from Spain and the Incan conquest by the Spaniards in 1572.Buried in a stone tomb alongside such tokens as sandals, beads and feathers, the girl—known as Ñusta, or “Princess” in the indigenous Quechua language—lived in the Andean highlands during the second half of the 15th century.— Smithsonian Magazine (@SmithsonianMag) August 22, 2019DNA samples will be tested to definitively indicate the age of the girl and her funerary objects.  It will also reveal what type of food she ate though it is probable that her diet consisted of the maize, beans, cocoa and grasses that were found with her.  According to The Sun Dr. Lovis remarked, “While I am now quite pleased and personally gratified that the physical transfer is complete, my continuing goal, in retirement, is to make the information we acquired available to Bolivia and other interested audiences and to continue my collaboration with the National Archaeology Museum in La Paz.”Related Video:Scientists from Idaho State University, the Idaho Museum of Natural History, Michigan State University, the University of New Hampshire and Pennsylvania State University have all cooperated in researching and returning the mummy. tells us Anthropologists Samantha Blatt of Idaho State University and Amy Michael from the University of New Hampshire are studying the structures in the enamel and roots of her teeth to determine the status of her health and if there were any health stress events during her life.Amy Commendador, Manager of the Earl H. Swanson Archaeological Repository at the Idaho Museum of Natural History at Idaho State University is studying Ñusta’s hair to determine her diet and any migration which may have taken place close to her end.Related Article: The Spooky Peruvian Mummies with HairBolivian Culture Minister Wilma Alanoca claims that while many archeological finds taken illegally have been returned this is the first example of human remains reintroduced into Bolivia. Ñusta’s funerary items are on display in La Paz for Dia de los Natitas – the Day of the Skulls; a celebration that honors the dead on November 9th similar to the Day of the Dead on November 1st and 2nd in Mexico.Ñusta has been temporarily placed into refrigeration at the National Museum of Archaeology of Bolivia near the Prado in La Paz until she and her possessions are properly buried.last_img read more

Selling for $1,099, the Lenovo Legion Y7000 features a strong Core i7 CPU and GTX 1060 GPU packed into a stylish chassis with a comfortable keyboard, a wildly colorful 15.6-inch display and above-average battery life. This machine has some flaws, including its irritating speakers and awkwardly placed webcam. However, the Legion Y7000 is a great overall gaming laptop for the price, and we even named it one of our best VR-ready laptops and best video editing laptops.article continued below Lenovo Legion Y7000 Price and Configuration Options There’s only one configuration of the Lenovo Legion Y7000. It costs $1,099 and comes with a 2.2-GHz Intel Core i7-8750H processor, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU with 6GB of VRAM, 16GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD and a 1TB 7,200-rpm HDD. Design The Legion Y7000 features a sleek, Iron Gray aluminum hood that curves down to an angled hinge with vent grills that are reminiscent of a sports car. The white Legion logo sunk in the middle glows as if it were the source of the Y7000’s power. Its ABS plastic interior is lathered in black, and Lenovo’s standard keyboard illuminates the keys with white backlighting. The Y7000’s bezels are noticeably slim, but that comes at a cost for the webcam, which is placed on the bottom bezel. The hinge is attached by one solid piece in the center, creating a slim gap on the left and right side of that part. At 5.3 pounds and 14.2 x 10.5 x 1.0-0.9 inches, the Legion Y7000 is lighter and thinner than the Acer Predator Helios 300 Special Edition (5.5 pounds, 1.1 inches) and the Asus TUF Gaming FX705 (6.1 pounds, 15.7 x 11 x 1 inches). Ports The Legion Y7000 has a good selection of ports for gaming and streaming. On the left there’s one USB 3.1 port and an audio jack, while the right side has one USB 3.1 port. The back of the Legion Y7000 holds the rest of the goodies, like one USB Type-C port, one Mini DisplayPort 1.4, one USB 3.1 port, an HDMI 2.0 port, an Ethernet RJ45 port, the power jack and a Kensington lock slot. Display The Legion Y7000’s 15.6-inch, 1920 x 1080p panel is surprisingly colorful and sharp, but it could be brighter. In the latest trailer for Aladdin, I was practically hypnotized by the genie lamp’s bold, sparking blue vortex. In the same scene, I could spot individual threads breaking off the top of the Magic Carpet’s seams. I wish the display were a little brighter, however, because when Will Smith came out of the lamp, the surrounding background looked noticeably dark. The Legion Y7000’s 15.6-inch, 1920 x 1080p panel is surprisingly colorful and sharp, but it could be brighter. As I played Shadow of the Tomb Raider, each strand of hair on Lara’s head was sharp as it glistened in the light of the sun. The crashed plane in the distance had a distinct red-orangish color that glowed like an emergency flare in the forest. However, even as I explored the sunlit forest, the display wasn’t very vibrant. The Legion Y7000 covered 153 percent of the sRGB color spectrum. That result blows away the 111 mainstream gaming laptop average, which is impressive for a laptop this cheap. This Lenovo also wrecked the Helios 300 (113 percent) and the TUF FX705 (123 percent). MORE: Best Graphics Performance At 277 nits, the Legion Y7000 beats the category average (273 nits) and the TUF FX705’s score (270 nits) despite looking rather dim in real-world testing. However, it couldn’t beat the Helios 300’s luminous 312 nits. Keyboard and Touchpad The Legion Y7000’s keys are so punchy and satisfying to type on that I would have thought my fingers were tap-dancing on a cloud if I didn’t know better. I also appreciate that the keyboard isn’t the gaudy, gamer-aesthetic mess that you typically find on cheap gaming laptops. Instead, it’s a standard black and white keyboard with a numpad and strong white backlighting. The Legion Y7000’s keys are so punchy and satisfying to type on that I would have thought my fingers were tap-dancing on a cloud if I didn’t know better. The keys measure 1.4 millimeters of travel, which is just a fraction off of our preferred 1.5 to 2.0mm, but they require a solid 71 grams of force to actuate (in line with a 60-gram minimum). I blazed through 78 words per minute on the typing test, passing my typical 66 wpm. The 4.1 x 2.7-inch touchpad is responsive and soft to the touch, and it offers a meaty click. It also smoothly registered Windows 10 gestures, like two-finger scrolling and three-finger tabbing. Audio The Legion Y7000’s speakers were somewhat disappointing when I listened to Twenty One Pilots’ “Stressed Out.” The bassy beats that intro the song were muffled and lacked the proper impact. And when the vocals kicked off, they were too sharp, as if someone had cranked up the treble to max. It was also off-putting to hear the cymbals match and even overwhelm the vocals. Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s bustling forest was filled with birds and frogs, but the chirping and croaking sounded hollow. And when the background music hit a crescendo, it was unpleasantly sharp. The dialogue between Lara and Jonah was loud but lacked bass, so it didn’t sound full. A similar effect happened when I fired my arrow and I didn’t hear the satisfying bowstring snap I was expecting. Armed with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU with 6GB of VRAM, the Legion Y7000 didn’t miss a step as I ran through the forest in Shadow of the Tomb Raider at max settings. I tried messing with Lenovo Vantage’s Dolby audio settings, but whether I changed my setting to Dynamic, Music or Gaming, the sound consistently sounded sharp and lacked bass. Gaming, Graphics and VR Armed with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU with 6GB of VRAM, the Legion Y7000 didn’t miss a step as I ran through the forest in Shadow of the Tomb Raider, spotted a baby frog on a rock and shot it with an arrow, all at 35 frames per second (Highest, 1080p). On the Rise of the Tomb Raider benchmark at Very High settings at 1080p, the Legion Y7000 nailed 37 fps, climbing over the 35-fps average for mainstream gaming laptops. Lenovo’s machine also landed between the Helios 300 (38 fps) and the TUF FX705 (36 fps), both of which have the same GPU. MORE: Best and Worst Laptop Gaming Brands The Legion Y7000 hit 70 fps on the Hitman benchmark (Ultra, 1080p), a score that tops the category average (66 fps) and the TUF FX705’s result but not the Helios 300’s mark (72 fps). While the Grand Theft Auto V benchmark (Very High, 1080p) pushed the Legion Y7000 to its limit, the machine just matched the category average, with 46 fps. Meanwhile, the Helios 300 and TUF FX705 came out ahead, with 51 and 47 fps, respectively. The Legion Y7000 can perform decently in VR, as it scored a 7 out of 11 on the SteamVR Performance Test. That beats the 6.3 category average as well as the TUF FX705’s result (6.9), but the Helios 300 scored a slightly higher 7.9. Performance Under the hood of this beast lies a 2.2-GHz Intel Core i7-8750H processor with 16GB of RAM that easily tore through 40 Google Chrome tabs, a 1080p YouTube video and Spotify, all while Shadow of the Tomb Raider was running in the background. On the Geekbench 4.3 performance test, the Legion Y7000 nailed 22,474, leaving the mainstream gaming laptop average (20,748) and the Helios 300 (20,595) in the dust. However, the TUF FX705 topped both laptops, with 23,179. They all had the same CPU, but the TUF FX705 has double the RAM, at 32GB. The Legion Y7000 took 38 seconds to match 65,000 names and addresses on our Excel test, meaning this machine is a few seconds faster than the 0:42 category average and the Helios 300 (0:45). The TUF FX705 finished the test at a much faster 9 seconds. On the HandBrake benchmark, the Legion Y7000 transcoded a 4K video to 1080p in just 9 minutes and 24 seconds, crushing the category average (11:10), the Helios 300’s time (10:30) and the TUF FX705’s mark (10:45). Lenovo’s 256GB SSD copied 4.97GB of data in 8 seconds, for a blazing-fast transfer rate of 636 megabytes per second that nearly doubles the 328-MBps category average. While the 256GB SSDs in the Helios 300 and TUF FX705 trumped the average, at 364 MBps and 392 MBps, respectively, they weren’t anywhere near the Legion’s rate. Battery Life The Legion Y7000 has pretty decent battery life for a gaming laptop. When I continuously surfed the web over Wi-Fi at 150 nits of brightness, the battery lasted 4 hours and 28 minutes. The Legion performed slightly above the 4:26 category average and even outlasted the Helios 300 (3:00) and TUF FX705 (4:19). Webcam Even if the Legion Y7000’s webcam were good (it’s not), it would still be completely useless because of its placement on the bottom bezel, as it just stares at my chest and nostrils. The test shots I took were super grainy, and the ceiling lights in the background blew out half of the ceiling. However, to its credit, the webcam did capture the color in my blue and red shirt rather well. Heat While the Legion Y7000 can get hot under the hood, it’s at most warm to the touch. After I played Shadow of the Tomb Raider for 15 minutes, the underside hit 123 degrees Fahrenheit, which is above our usual 95 degree comfort threshold. The center of the keyboard and touchpad measured 105 and 81 degrees, respectively. The hottest this machine got was 139 degrees, on the right vent on the underside. On our normal heat test, the Legion Y7000’s underside hit 102 degrees after the machine streamed a 15-minute HD video, while the center of the keyboard registered 85 degrees and the touchpad reached 94 degrees. Software and Warranty Lenovo throws in its usual Vantage app, which you can use to monitor your CPU, GPU, RAM and drives.

See how Lenovo performed on our Tech Support Showdown, Best and Worst Brands, and Best and Worst Gaming Brands rankings. Bottom Line The Lenovo Legion Y7000 is an affordable gaming laptop with premium features. On top of offering impressive gaming power via its GTX 1060 GPU, it has a quality chassis with a punchy keyboard, a vivid panel and solid battery life. However, the laptop’s audio quality and webcam are disappointing. For $1,399, you can get the Acer Predator Helios 300 Special Edition, which offers a brighter display, a webcam in the right place and slightly better gaming performance. But overall, for $1,099, the Legion Y7000 is an awesome mainstream gaming laptop.
