15 : The Culmination Of Two Million Years
Several thousand years after a mysterious phenomenon that turns all of humanity to stone, the extraordinarily intelligent, science-driven boy, Senku Ishigami, awakens. Facing a world of stone and the total collapse of civilization, Senku makes up his mind to use science to rebuild the world. Starting with his super strong childhood friend Taiju Oki, who awakened at the same time, they will begin to rebuild civilization from nothing... Depicting two million years of scientific history from the Stone Age to present day, the unprecedented crafting adventure story is about to begin!

Performance mechanisms are key components of the Performance-Based Regulation (PBR) Framework for the Hawaiian Electric Companies. The PBR Framework was approved by the PUC in December 2020, and includes a Customer Dividend, which will automatically provide approximately $12.6 million in rate reduction in 2021, and is estimated to provide approximately $69.9 million in total rate reductions through 2025. The rate reduction in 2021 is equivalent to approximately $1.27 per month for a typical residential customer.
This decision represents the culmination of over two and a half years of dedicated work by a broad spectrum of key stakeholders, including Hawaiian Electric, the State Consumer Advocate, local governments, clean energy companies, and environmental groups.
So far this year, the White House has released about 165 million barrels of crude from the SPR, out of a total that it said would be around 180 million. The announcement of an additional 10 million to 15 million barrels on Wednesday would represent the culmination of the current release.
The Coast Guard today selected Eastern Shipbuilding Group Inc. of Panama City, Florida, to continue to the detail design and construction phase (Phase II) of the offshore patrol cutter acquisition program. The award is worth $110.29 million.
The award is the culmination of more than two years of analysis with the contractors who submitted proposals. The service awarded preliminary and contract design awards to three contractors in February 2014 and selected Eastern Shipbuilding Group Inc. to complete detail design after evaluating an extensive range of contract deliverables submitted by the preliminary and contract design phase contractors.
The OPC will bridge the capabilities of the 418-foot national security cutters, which patrol the open ocean, and the 154-foot fast response cutters, which serve closer to shore. The ships will replace the 270-foot and 210-foot medium endurance cutters, which have been in service for 30 to 50 years.
For all of their differences, white and Black southern women faced a similar challenge during Reconstruction. Southern women celebrated the return of their brothers, husbands, and sons, but couples separated for many years struggled to adjust. To make matters worse, many of these former soldiers returned with physical or mental wounds. For white families, suicide and divorce became more acceptable, while the opposite occurred for Black families. Since the entire South suffered from economic devastation, many families were impoverished and sank into debt. All southern women faced economic devastation, lasting wartime trauma, and enduring racial tensions.
The Civil War destroyed and then transformed the American economy. In 1859 and 1860, wealthy southern planters were flush after producing record cotton crops. Southern prosperity relied on over four million enslaved African American to grow cotton, along with a number of other staple crops across the region. Cotton fed the textile mills of America and Europe and brought great wealth to the region. On the eve of war, the American South enjoyed more per capita wealth than any other slave economy in the New World. To their enslavers, these people constituted their most valuable assets, worth roughly $3 billion.36 Yet this wealth obscured the gains in infrastructure, industrial production, and financial markets that occurred north of the Mason-Dixon Line, a fact that the war would unmask for all to see.
Wartime laws also transformed the relationship between the federal government and the American economy. New tariff laws sheltered northern industry from European competition. The Morrill Land Grant helped create colleges such as the University of California, the University of Illinois, and the University of Wisconsin. With the creation of the national banking system and greenbacks, Congress replaced hundreds of state bank notes with a system of federal currency that accelerated trade and exchange. This was not to say that Republican policy worked for everyone. The Homestead Act, meant to open the West to small farmers, was often frustrated by railroad corporations and speculators. The Transcontinental Railroad, launched during the war, failed to produce substantial economic gains for years.
Suicide was the second leading cause of death among young people aged 15-29 years, after road injury. Among teenagers aged 15-19 years, suicide was the second leading cause of death among girls (after maternal conditions) and the third leading cause of\n death in boys (after road injury and interpersonal violence).
On 10 September, WHO, in collaboration with global partners, the World Federation for Mental Health, the International Association for Suicide Prevention and United for Global Mental Health, is launching the 40 seconds of action campaign. The culmination\n of the campaign will be on World Mental Health Day, 10 October, the focus of which is also suicide prevention this year.

RONTYKOSKI (Museum of Nature & Science): It's as if somebody took 15Pachyrhinosaurus, dumped them in a blender for 30 seconds and then poured allthe mess out into a large batch of concrete and let it solidify for 70 millionyears.
NARRATOR: They've unearthed dinosaurbones near the North Pole. The animal was called Edmontosaurus, a gentle giant,a 35-foot-long, four-ton, duck-billed plant eater, a member of the Hadrosaurfamily, found in 70-million-year-old rock, a mere 50 miles from the ArcticOcean, where temperatures can drop as low as minus-60 degrees Fahrenheit.According to conventional wisdom, it shouldn't be here, because this is howdinosaurs are typically pictured: cold-blooded reptiles living in tropicalclimes, not in cold, arctic environments like this one. And the Hadrosaur isnot alone.
Luckilyfor the scientists, many important clues are preserved in the rock. When theseanimals died, layer upon layer of sediment covered their bodies. Mineralsslowly replaced bone tissue to create fossils. Then, 45 million years ago,geologic forces began to uplift the ground, exposing the edge of the fossillayer along these frozen cliffs.
NARRATOR: There, he used dynamite toexpose a narrow fossil layer buried deep in the rock. That bone mine yieldedthousands of fossils, mostly well-preserved small pieces, proof that 100million years ago, dinosaurs lived near the South Pole, an environment evencolder than this one, near the North Pole, where he's trying, again, to finddinosaurs.
NARRATOR: Though the goal this timewas merely to build the tunnel, their work paid an unexpected dividend,Hadrosaur bones. These duck-billed plant-eaters appeared about 145 millionyears ago and were one of the most successful groups living, right up until thetime that all dinosaurs died out, around 65 million years ago.
NARRATOR: Finding so manyPachyrhinosaurus in one spot is like stumbling on an elephant graveyard.Seventy-million years ago, something happened that deposited the bodies of morethan a dozen massive animals in this one spot. The river below offers a clue.
RONTYKOSKI: This is a point where theskull attaches to the first vertebra of the neck in a beautiful ball and socketjoint. And we have at least 15 of these, from this particular quarry. It's asif somebody took 15 Pachyrhinosaurus and dumped them in a blender for 30 secondsand then poured all the mess out into a large batch of concrete and let itsolidify for 70 million years. Everything is completely jumbled about. Bonesare oriented in all sorts of different directions, and nothing's connected.
NARRATOR: Scientists have long knownthat the Earth's climate was generally warmer during the time of the dinosaurs.But how warm was the polar climate 70 million years ago? Was it hot enough tobe considered tropical, and were the seasons as extreme as they are in thearctic today?
NARRATOR: He and his team spentyears comparing leaf shapes to climate data in more than 170 locations aroundthe world. It was a massive undertaking. But in the end, he was able to createa statistical model that ties leaf-tooth patterns to temperature.
Ifthey were alive today, herds of dinosaurs could not have survived in a placelike this. What was their polar summer like 70 million years ago? That's thequestion that Steve Hasiotis has set out to answer. He's a paleoichnologist. 041b061a72
