planet-Sm.jpg
Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have imaged what may be water vapor plumes erupting off the surface of Jupiter's moon Europa. This finding bolsters other Hubble observations suggesting the icy moon erupts with high altitude water vapor plumes.

The observation increases the possibility that missions to Europa may be able to sample Europa’s ocean without having to drill through miles of ice.

Three years after it was launched as the training ground to help prepare junior high students in Grand Bahama to become ambassadors for the environment, the popular Youth Environment Ambassadors program opened for registration this week but with noticeable differences.

“There will be fewer participants but they will enjoy broader experiences,” explained YEA Administrator Rashema Ingraham. “In the past, we have accommodated 40 deserving students per 12-week series. While that was great, the high number made travel to other islands to experience what is special about their environment unrealistic so this year we aim to limit the number to 20 students but work toward opportunities for those participants to travel to explore and study the land and marine environment in at least two of the Family Islands...”

NASSAU, The Bahamas – The Bahamas will be one of many global countries taking a stand against ageism when it joins forces with other United Nations Member States to commemorate International Day of Older Persons and Older Persons Month in October.

Ageism manifests itself in both individual and institutional behaviours such as overlooking older persons for employment, stereotyping them, and generally excluding older persons from decision-making in their communities.

Ageism also affects older persons by diminishing self-worth in some cases while increasing the risk of depression, and has its roots in attitudes that view older persons as in decline, dependent, a burden and a drain,
