Get geared up for the Great Backyard Bird Count! - BirdLife’s

Birdwatchers around the world are invited to help gather crucial information as part of a free, fun, and family-friendly event taking place February 14-17, 2014.

From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, tens of thousands of birdwatchers from more than 100 countries are expected to participate in the 17th annual Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC), a joint project of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society (BirdLife in the United States) with Bird Studies Canada (BirdLife co-partner). (see also: obat burung)

Participating is easy, and it helps birds! The GBBC engages people of all ages and birding skill levels in counting birds to support bird conservation. These volunteers go birdwatching in backyards, local parks, nature reserves, or wherever they happen to be. Participants count birds for at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the count, and report their sightings online. The results provide a snapshot of the health of bird populations, at a scale that would not otherwise be possible.

Last year’s Great Backyard Bird Count shattered records after going global for the first time, thanks to integration with the eBird online checklist program. Participants reported their bird sightings from all seven continents, including 111 countries and independent territories. More than 34.5 million birds and 4351 species were recorded – more than one-third of the world’s total bird species documented in just four days.

The recently-upgraded GBBC website includes new ways to view and explore results in real time, as observations are submitted. All are welcome to visit the site throughout the weekend to follow the count’s progress, explore species reports by community, region, or country, and share photographs. Winning images from the 2013 photo contest are also available on the GBBC website.

The Great Backyard Bird Count provides an excellent opportunity for more experienced birders to introduce their friends, families, and communities to the wonderful world of birding – and is a great way for people of all ages and backgrounds to connect with nature and make a difference for birds.

Getting more Kinds of Diseases Cats

Before we memeliha cat , its no good we Knowing Closer Various Kinds of Diseases Cats cat kesdayangan so that we can be kept well and is spared from some of the common diseases that attack us her special pet cat , especially if the cat that we keep an expensive cat my dear if our cat is a dangerous disease .

 Various Kinds of Diseases Cats

Disease that usually attacks the cat is a cat flu , cat flu which usually affect the cat can not get to know the age of the cat or young adult cats though , aside from the flu there are also other diseases such as the common memyerang cat rabies , worms .

Above diseases that can strike your pet cat because of several factors such as due to his existing viruses or bacteria that exist in the environment , and diseases such as cat flu that can be transmitted to other cats sneezing her through her ​​water or through ludahan her cat , or also caused by our hands when handling sick cats and then holding another cat .

And the signs of cat flu affected the same as its ordinary symptoms that we feel when we have a cold , such as sneezing , and no appetite , and the cat was once his initial symptoms . So do not be surprised if we do not want the cat to eat or not eat his usual gusto as his means that we keep the cat there was nothing her or being sick .

Well if the cat we had seen his initial symptoms as well as its direct course in veterinary medicine to take it handled more quickly in order to overcome his illness well and is not contagious to other cats her , and the more severe it again please until the cat flu attack we are maintaining his attack , because it could happen if on leave . Actually it can be hell before being taken to the vet we can love our cats and some vitamins and supplements .(see also: pakan burung pleci)

Various Kinds of Diseases Cats
Getting more Kinds of Diseases Cats before its maintaining its is a good thing gan , , , like said willing umbrella before it rains , so is the article that I made for this time may be useful.

The Moon Over High Toned from Earth

Internet is not only needed on Earth . In space exploration , satellite data communications with the spacecraft using the Internet network .

The difference is, if the Internet connection on the mainland sometimes jammed , in a space designed super- fast Internet connection , more smoothly minimal interference , compared to connections on Earth .

Launch the Daily Mail , Wednesday, February 19, 2014 , the U.S. space agency collaboration ( NASA ) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology ( MIT ) have tested the connection strong data on spacecraft orbiting the Moon . The key is the use of laser technology .

In October last year , a team of researchers used lasers to transfer data from the aircraft to the Moon orbiting the Earth . At that time , data transfer is quite astonishing , 622 MB per second ( 4976 Mbps ) .

If the views are still not up to the capacity of Giga Bytes , but considering the distance of the Moon to the Earth's orbit , it is quite remarkable .

In fact , the communication space that uses radio frequency current , is mentioned dozens of times more slow than the laser communication test .

" It works like a gangbuster , very quickly . System is doing what it needs , " said Don Boroson , design team leader of the Lunar Laser Communications Demonstration ( LLCD ) Lincoln Lab , when presenting the results at SPIE Photonics West conference .

For several months , NASA and the Lincoln Lab engineers to test the first time bidirectional laser tissue between the Moon and Earth . The mission of this trial is a step LLCD NASA to switch from radio frequency communications to the laser in space .

more reliably

In addition to transfer HD video reliably , laser communications technology also allows humans to control robots or machines remotely . Perform tasks including mining or construction of structures on the Moon .

" The purpose of this trial is LLCD validate this technology and build trust , so that future missions can consider using this technology , " said Don Cornwell , Manager LLCD .

Laser communications technology is considered more secure and reliable against interference or jamming ( jamming ) .

If LLCD mission success , NASA has prepared an advanced mission
Laser Communications Relay Demonstration ( LCRD ) , which is scheduled for launch in 2017 .

LCRD planned to run for five years it aims to examine the extent to which the reliability of laser communications technology .

LLCD trial over LADEE spacecraft NASA robotic mission will run for 100 days with 30 days LADEE stages trips to the moon , followed LLCD operations for the next 30 days after arriving in lunar orbit .

LLCD primary mission is to send hundreds of millions of bits of data per second from the Moon to the Earth , it is equivalent to the transmission of data over 100 HD TV channels simultaneously. This mission will also test the capability of receiving data LLCD .

On the mainland are the main terminal , NASA's White Sands Complex in New Mexico , which will receive and transmit signals LLCD .( see also: lomba burung kicauan )

The terminal will be supported by two alternative stations , namely NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California and the station belongs to European Space Agency ( ESA ) in Tenerife Island , Spain .
