“We last saw this happen in 2016, when a strong negative Indian Ocean Dipole (a major climate driver) formed to the west of Australia. This was the last time we saw tropical moisture from the northern Indian Ocean deliver good winter rainfall to large parts of Australia. However the IOD is expected to head towards a neutral phase which would increase moisture levels on Australia while depriving eastern Africa of rainfall..
As they walked past, Tony spotted just outside the dump, a few old pictures thrown down on the ground. They didn’t have any frames, and if he had left them there, they would have been ruined by the rain. Tony liked collecting things, in fact he has quite a collection of old pictures and other objects, that he likes to keep.

CHAMPAIGN, lll. William T. Greenough, a professor emeritus of psychology at the University of Illinois and a pioneer in studies of brain plasticity and development, died Dec. Cunningham is the same prosecutor who secured 2016 convictions against Rouschop in the rapes of two Vanier sex trade workers. The rape and choking trial lasted three weeks and Rouschop mounted a micropenis defence, saying his one inch penis was too small to have allowed him to commit the vicious sex crimes.

We are going to have to watch it.”Meanwhile, in South Carolina, Rt an epidemiological statistic that represents transmissibility, or the number of people a sick person infects at a particular point in an epidemic is now estimated to be 1.09.
ZUMPANGO, Mexico () Alongside construction crews racing to build the Mexican capital’s new airport, skulls and curving tusks of massive mammoths peek through the dirt as archaeologists dig up more and more bones belonging to the ice age’s most famous mammal.The latest discoveries include two huge skulls, along with scattered ribs and limbs, found just inside the perimeter of where a new civilian airport is being built, about 30 miles (50km) north of downtown Mexico City.To date, some 70 individual mammoths have been unearthed since late last year. Dating back more than 10,000 years, this part of Mexico once teemed with mammoth herds, drawn to the lush grasslands and lakes that dotted the landscape.The hulking bones left behind spawned legends of giants that dazzled both indigenous civilizations and Spanish conqueror Hernan Cortes.Standing next to one partial skeleton, lead archeologist Ruben Manzanilla, explains that this spot likely would have been part of a meandering shoreline thick with mud on the edge of a lake formed at the end of the last ice age.”When an animal this size fell here, it got stuck and couldn’t escape,” he said, as a convoy of construction trucks rumbled down a dusty road.Manzanilla’s Columbian mammoth, which unlike its cousin the wooly mammoth had little fur, certainly lived up to its imposing name.He estimates it weighed roughly 20 tonnes, or double that of a Tyrannosaurus Rex, and reached a height of more than 4 meters (13 ft), about twice as tall as pro basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal.Manzanilla believes countless mammoths likely succumbed to the muck, but he also points to evidence from nearby sites that early human hunters also used flint spears to bring them down and set rudimentary traps in the water.”We were sure there had been giants in this land,” wrote Diaz del Castillo.The incident is summarized in an article on the history of mammoths in Mexico in the current issue of Arqueologia Mexicana by Leonardo Lopez Lujan.Even as more mammoth remains turn up, the digs have not slowed progress on the new airport, a top priority for President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.Since the construction site lies within an existing air force base, the military is also picking up the tab for team of 30 archaeologists from the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH), along with nearly 200 laborers, working on the project.One of Trump favorite pollsters shows his approval plummetingPresident Trump approval rating has plummeted since late February, according to the Rasmussen daily tracking poll, which the president frequently cited during his first three years in office. As of Wednesday, 42 percent of Americans told Rasmussen that they approved of the job Trump was doing as president, while 57 percent disapproved.
