Outdoor Updates: Oil leaking into the Gulf of Mexico is much higher than the well-owner claims

first_imgWildlife officials on the French island of Corsica have discovered a new species of feline Photo by Office of Response and Restoration (NOAA) Skimming oil in the Gulf of Mexico during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill A new study that took a look at the oil leaking from a platform that toppled off of the coast of Louisiana 14 years ago has found the amount of oil seeping into the Gulf of Mexico is much higher than the well-owner claims. Wolf pups successfully introduced into the wild in Arizona and New Mexico  Surrogate wild wolves are raising twelve Mexican wolf pups after they were successfully introduced into existing wolf litters in Arizona and New Mexico. Scientists from the Mexican Wolf Species Survival Plan and Interagency Field Team placed the wolves in their new dens. Six of the wolf pups came from the Endangered Wolf Center in Missouri, three from the Mesker Park Zoo in Indiana, two from the Sedgwick County Zoo in Kansas, and one from the Wolf Conservation Center in New York. Cross-fostering is a way to successfully introduce pups into the litters of wild females and has the highest survival rates of wolf release methods. https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/ In 2004 Hurricane Ivan caused the oil platform, owned by Taylor Energy Co., to fall, breaking a number of well-pipes. The company capped nine of the wells but said it could not cap all 16. Taylor Energy has argued that the uncapped wells are leaking just 2.4 to 4 gallons of oil per day. The authors of the study, which was paid for by the federal Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, say that the total amount of oil released each day could be closer to 4,500 gallons. The study was done using sonar and a newly developed tool that measures oil and gas bubbles as they rise through the water. Study finds that oil leaking into the Gulf of Mexico is much higher than the well owner claims Good news for all you cat lovers out there—there’s now one more feline species for you to enjoy. Wildlife officials on the French island of Corsica have identified 16 golden striped cats on a remote area of the island. The cats are described as larger than the average housecat with large, ringed tails and “highly developed” canine teeth. Locally the cats are being referred to as “fox-cats” because of their appearance. Scientists believe that the cats are a newly discovered species that may have originated thousands of years back in Africa or the Middle East. While the DNA of the cats is close to that of an African forest cat, their exact identity is still unknown. last_img read more

Girls basketball Bees sweep to tournament title in Florida, improves to 7-0

first_imgJust as winter snows forced schedule changes and the coldest temperatures of the season hit, the Baldwinsville girls basketball team left, found warm temperatures in Florida – and kept on winning.The Bees, off to a 4-0 start and perched at no. 15 in the first state Class AA rankings of the winter, were supposed to take on Fayetteville-Manlius on Dec. 17, but it got postponed.A day later, B’ville’s players, coaches and chaperones made it to Orlando, where inside that city’s sprawling convention center it would take part in the KSA Tournament.In last Thursday’s opening round, it was B’ville against University High School from Orange City, Florida, and showing no effects from the travel, it beat the Titans 61-41.With a 20-7 push through the second quarter, the Bees broke the game open, maintaining a double-digit margin the rest of the way.All nine players that saw action got on the scoreboard, led by Katie Pascale and Jordan Roy, who had 13 points apiece. Gianna Perine earned nine points, with Alexandra Bednarczyk getting seven points and Mattison Phinney earning six points.Next, B’ville faced David Douglas High School, from near Portland, Oregon. Against the Scots, the Bees would get its most difficult challenge of the tournament, but still battle its way to a 50-41 victory.A low-scoring first half ended 15-15, but B’ville maintained its patience and then,in the third quarter, made the decisive move, outscoring Douglas 19-9.Lots of free throws followed, and Pascale would convert 12 of her 20 points at the foul line. Bednarczyk finished with 10 points as Hannah Mimas had eight points and Roy earned six points.It concluded on Saturday with the Bees against Ocean View, from California. The Seahawks would prove no match for B’ville as, with its best performance of the tournament, it rolled to a 63-23 victory.An 18-6 start was quite good, but the Bees didn’t let up, ultimately putting Ocean View in a second half where it limited the Seahawks to just four points.Best of all was the scoring balance as Pascale got 13 points, with Bednarczyk adding nine points. Mimas finished with eight points as Kyrah Wilbur and Sydney Huhtala got six points apiece.All of this put the Bees at 7-0 going into next Monday’s game against Utica Proctor, which will get followed Jan. 2 by the makeup of the F-M game at 1:30.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Tags: Baldwinsvillegirls basketballlast_img read more

Syracuse senior receiver Ervin Philips’ status unknown

first_img Published on September 16, 2017 at 9:09 pm Contact Matthew: [email protected] | @MatthewGut21 The Carrier Dome fell silent as Ervin Philips lay on the ground. Shortly before halftime, he had attempted a diving catch. He couldn’t hold onto the football on a wheel route and appeared to have landed on the ball.With 1:09 before halftime in Syracuse’s (2-1) 31-17 victory over Central Michigan (2-1), Philips grabbed his knee, drank water and left the field on his own. He did not return to the sidelines for the remainder of the game Saturday afternoon at the Carrier Dome. The senior receiver’s status is unclear.“I haven’t had an opportunity to see Erv,” Syracuse head coach Dino Babers said after the game. “I haven’t had a chance to see Erv at all.”Sophomore Devin C. Butler saw more playing time in Philips’ place. Philips left the game with three catches for 32 yards with a long of 13. On a third down, he did a one-man tip drill over the middle, catching an Eric Dungey pass he initially tipped. It was almost picked off, but Philips finished the play for a Syracuse first down.Senior wide receiver Steve Ishmael and sophomore Sean Riley may have been targeted more as a result of Philips’ absence. Ishmael caught eight passes for 139 yards and Riley hauled in four receptions for 82 yards. Dungey finished with 279 yards and two touchdowns.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn last week’s Syracuse loss to Middle Tennessee State, Philips finished with only seven catches for 36 yards and a pair of rushes for 15 yards.Before the season, he said his goal was to be the “best receiver in the ACC.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
