Ted Scambos, the lead scientist for the National Snow and Ice Data Centre, has analysed an award winning photo entitled “Icy Sugar Cubes” that reveals the frozen land’s secrets. He said: “A massive slab of flowing ice begins to go afloat. “Initially, because it is very thick, it spreads laterally side to side, creating deep along-flow troughs. “Later, with further flow, the ice begins to stretch out longitudinally, and the surface snow breaks perpendicular to the first troughs. “Note that the troughs that run more perpendicular to the aircraft are…

Everton star Dominic Calvert-Lewin sends message to Sam Allardyce ahead of January window

Calvert-Lewin has never shied away from a battle – he learned that from his no-nonsense, non-league days at Stalybridge Celtic. He remembers clearly his bruising time in the Conference North.

Roku Streaming Stick 2017 review – CNET

These days just about every TV above 49 inches or $300 has 4K resolution and probably high dynamic range too, so if you’re buying a streaming device for a newer TV, chances are you want one that does that stuff. My favorite this year is the $70 Roku Streaming Stick Plus.  But let’s say you don’t care about 4K streaming or HDR. Maybe you want to connect that new streamer to an older or smaller TV.
