first_img IS IT TRUE we are waiting for the 2015 City Audit conducted by the State Board of Accounts to be made public any day now?  …this audit shall prove if past City Councilmen and Finance Chairmen John Friend, CPA was correct about the City having a $6 million dollar deficit in 2015?IS IT TRUE in case you haven’t been paying attention we would like to point out that Vanderburgh County Sheriff Dave Wedding is doing one heck of a job?  …Sheriff Wedding is considered to be a blue collar and hands on Sheriff?  …he is extremely well thought of by the rank and file of the Sheriffs Office?  …we also are very pleased with the professional way the men and women of the Vanderburgh County Sheriff Office conduct themselves?IS IT TRUE the city razed a house in the 1200 block of South Bedford?  …that several of the neighboring residents made a special effort to thank “Let’s Fix That” proprietor George Lumley in his arm-twisting effort to get this house taken out?  … Mr. Lumley attributed the success to the Evansville Citizen Concern mobile app?  … by generating multiple concerns on the app to the mayor’s office has proven to be an effective Blight Fighting tool?IS IT TRUE it was suggested that Mr. Lumley thank the city for taking this house out?  …that he should apologize for giving the city a hard time about the methods they use to address blight?  ..  Mr. Lumley responded that he thought an apology was indeed in order?  …that every city official should apologize to each and every resident living in a neighborhood containing one of these Zombie Houses that has not yet been taken out or otherwise remediated?IS IT TRUE that Michelle Peterlin has been painting at her Kasson Studio with Acrylic on Canvas and using local models?  …her printings are titled “Spirit Within Conflict”?  …today we had the honor to get a sneak preview of her masterful work?  …its with pleasure that we proudly announce that Michelle Peterlin has agreed to share her paintings with the CCO readers in the near future?  …we guarantee that you shall be extremely impressed with her outstandings paintings once you view them?IS IT TRUE that today “READERS POLL” ask; Do you feel that John Friend CPA statement that the 2015 City Budget had a $6 million deficit is accurate?Copyright 2015 City County Observer.

Spacecraft hints at source of Jupiters mysterious auroras

first_imgSpacecraft hints at source of Jupiter’s mysterious auroras Jupiter’s auroras (depicted in this composite image) are by far the strongest in the solar system—and surprisingly, a new study finds, the brightest ones are not generated by the same processes that create our planet’s strongest auroras. On Earth, the brightest auroras (the high-altitude glows often called the northern and southern lights) are generated when electrons in outer space near Earth are accelerated by large electrical potentials, or voltages, along the lines in our planet’s magnetic field and slam into gas molecules in the upper atmosphere above polar regions. The same process, driven by even larger voltages, happens at Jupiter but plays an unexpectedly minor role in creating auroras there, the new analysis suggests. Scientists don’t fully understand what’s driving Jupiter’s strongest auroras, but data gathered by the orbiting Juno spacecraft hint that the electrons generating Jupiter’s polar glows may be accelerated by turbulent waves in the planet’s magnetic field—a process somewhat akin to surfers being driven shoreward ahead of breaking ocean waves, the researchers report today in Nature. Further analyses may help scientists better understand what’s going on in Jupiter’s atmosphere, scientists say. They could also help engineers better design probes that can survive repeated passes through the strong magnetic fields near Jupiter. By Sid PerkinsSep. 6, 2017 , 1:00 PMlast_img read more
