Key was inspired by the sight of a lone U.S. flag still flying over Fort McHenry at daybreak, as reflected in the now-famous words of the “Star-Spangled Banner”: “And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.” Francis Scott Key was born on August 1, 1779, at Terra Rubra, his family’s estate in Frederick County (now Carroll County), Maryland. He became a successful lawyer in Maryland and Washington, D.C., and was later appointed U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia.On June 18, 1812, America declared war on Great Britain after a series of trade disagreements. In August 1814, British troops invaded Washington, D.C., and burned the White House, Capitol Building and Library of Congress. Their next target was Baltimore.After one of Key’s friends, Dr. William Beanes, was taken prisoner by the British, Key went to Baltimore, located the ship where Beanes was being held and negotiated his release. However, Key and Beanes weren’t allowed to leave until after the British bombardment of Fort McHenry. Key watched the bombing campaign unfold from aboard a ship located about eight miles away. After a day, the British were unable to destroy the fort and gave up. Key was relieved to see the American flag still flying over Fort McHenry and quickly penned a few lines in tribute to what he had witnessed.The poem was printed in newspapers and eventually set to the music of a popular English drinking tune called “To Anacreon in Heaven” by composer John Stafford Smith. People began referring to the song as “The Star-Spangled Banner” and in 1916 President Woodrow Wilson announced that it should be played at all official events. It was adopted as the national anthem on March 3, 1931.Francis Scott Key died of pleurisy on January 11, 1843. Today, the flag that flew over Fort McHenry in 1914 is housed at the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.For more information on this day in history, go here.

The distribution and fine structure of muscle-fibre types has been determined for the pelagic fingerling and demersal adult stages of the antarctic teleost Notothenia neglecta Nybelin, collected from Signy Island, Antarctica, between January and February 1984. In both stages, the pectoral fin adductor muscle (m.ad.p) is largely composed of slow fibres which contain abundant mitochondria (34 to 36%). During development, the ratio of capillaries to fibres increases less than does fibre diameter, so that capillary density is significantly lower in the m.ad.p of adults (498 mm-2) than fingerlings (1 727 mm-2). The secondary metamorphosis from a pelagic to a demersal mode of life is associated with the disappearance of subcutaneous lipid sacs and major changes in the distribution and structure of muscle fibres in the myotomes. The trunk cross-section of adult fish is almost entirely composed of poorly vascularised fast-muscle fibres (100 capillaries mm-2), which contain densely packed myofibrils (86.3%), and have few mitochondria (1.4%). Slow-muscle fibres in adults are restricted to a thin wedge adjacent to the lateral line canal. In contrast, slow fibres occur around the entire circumference of the trunk in fingerlings representing 24% of the total cross-sectional area at the post-anal level. Volume densities (%) of mitochondria, intracellular lipid and myofibrils in this tissue are respectively 37.0, 7.9, 38.6 for fingerlings and 13.1, 0, 70.3 for adults. Slow-muscle fibres in adult fish are of unusually large diameter (50 to 120 μm) and have relatively low capillary densities (266 mm-2). These morphological changes reflect a general decrease in activity and a shift from a sub-carangiform to a labriform mode of swimming following transition from the fingerling to adult stage of the life cycle. The results are briefly discussed in relation to the physiology and ecology of antarctic fish.
Associated Press Written by Tags: Utah State Aggies Basketball FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailLOGAN, Utah (AP) — Brock Miller hit six 3-pointers and put up 26 points as Utah State boosted its record to 3-0 with a 94-59 win over Mississippi Valley State Tuesday night.The Aggies scored 100 points or more in the first two games of the three-game home stand to start the season, the first time in program history. Against the Delta Devils, they shot 29 of 50 from outside (58 percent), including 11 of 21 from distance (52.4 percent).Utah State took a commanding lead in the first half, taking a 53-24 advantage into intermission.Sam Merrill had 18 points and John Knight III added another 12 for Utah State.Mississippi State, which has lost all three of its games on the road to start the season, got 29 points from Jordan Evans, who hit 8 of 11 from behind the arc. Dante Scott added another 20. November 13, 2018 /Sports News – Local Utah State cruises past Mississippi Valley State, 94-59
January 10, 2019 /Sports News – Local Carter’s career-high 18 carry Washington over Utah, 69-53 Associated Press Following his season high of 23 against Washington State last week, Crisp had a no-hesitation release even when closely guarded. Utah led 15-13 before Crisp buried four straight 3s. Since Pac-12 play began, the Huskies have suddenly found their touch from beyond the arc, hitting 41 percent. Washington continues their mountain swing at Colorado Saturday night. UP NEXT Jaylen Nowell and Noah Dickerson, Washington’s leading scorers, had a combined two points at halftime and yet the Huskies led 38-30. The Huskies made a concerted effort to feed Dickerson on the post and he responded with seven straight points to open the second half and Washington led by 15. A rare Utah 3-pointer by Sedrick Barefield got the Utes back within 47-42, but the Huskies ratcheted up the pressure once again and went on a 12-0 run, capped by Carter’s jumper to make it 59-42. BIG PICTURE Written by The Huskies’ quick hands and length created dozens of deflections, forced 16 turnovers and nine blocked shots. The Utes were determined to pass into the middle of the zone but even when the ball got there, they often couldn’t navigate the gauntlet of collapsing defenders. Utah: The Utes hoped to capitalize on their strong opening weekend showing in Arizona when they beat Arizona State and took the Wildcats to overtime before losing. But some of their offensive struggles resurfaced and they could never get comfortable operating against the Washington zone. After scoring 33, 24 and 26 points, Barefield managed just six points on 2-of-10 shooting and no other Utes were able to get a rhythm. Crisp was 5 of-7 and Carter 3 of 4 from beyond the arc and the Husky defense held the Utes to season low in points. FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailSALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Nazieh Carter scored a career-high 18 points and David Crisp added 17 points to lead Washington over Utah 69-53 on Thursday night. Both teams were knocked from their normal offensive flows by the defensive pressure at times. The Utes also played man-to-man defense but the Huskies stuck with their trademark zone and extended it to chase the Utes off the 3-point line or force awkward attempts. Jayce Johnson led the Utes with 12 points before leaving the game in the final minutes after getting hit in the face and falling to the court. Donnie Tillman had 10 for the Utes, who missed 24 of their 30 3-point attempts. Utah hosts Washington State on Saturday night. Washington won its first true road game and has now logged four wins in a row, snapping Utah’s six-game winning streak in the series. Washington: The Huskies rely on defense and they smothered the Utes and reversed their usual struggles in Utah, snapping a five-game losing streak in Salt Lake City. If the Washington perimeter shooters can extend their recent hot shooting and pair it with Dickerson’s low-post scoring, then the Huskies have a good chance of staying near the top of the Pac-12 standings.

Acceleration beyond peak fossil-fuel demand adds to existing pressure on future profitsCarbon Tracker energy strategist Kingsmill Bond, who authored the research, said the findings demonstrate the “decline and fall” of the carbon industry, with the impact of Covid-19 accelerating the move beyond peak demand.He added: “This is a huge opportunity for countries that import fossil fuels, which can save trillions of dollars by switching to a clean energy economy in line with the Paris Agreement.“Now is the time to plan an orderly wind-down of fossil-fuel assets and manage the impact on the global economy rather than try to sustain the unsustainable.“Technological innovation and policy support is driving peak fossil-fuel demand in sector after sector and country after country, and the Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated this. We may now have seen peak fossil fuel demand as a whole.” Coronavirus has accelerated the demand decline of fossil fuels (Credit: Wikimedia Commons/US National Archives and Records Administration/John Messina) A huge financial crisis is looming for fossil fuel industries, with profits poised to fall by two-thirds amid climate-related investment risks and the impact of coronavirus on global energy demand, according to a new report.Future earnings derived from international oil, gas and coal reserves could shrink to $14tn – a $25tn drop – warns thinktank Carbon Tracker, which suggests the time of peak fossil-fuel demand may have now passed.This financial decline may have significant implications for the wider global economy, given the sheer size of the fossil fuels system which accounts for a quarter of the total value of global equity markets – with companies across the sector worth $18tn – and physical supply and demand infrastructure worth $32tn. New analysis suggests coronavirus has accelerated the shift beyond peak fossil-fuel demand, dealing a blow to the industry’s future profitability as clean energy gains momentum Carbon industry is undergoing ‘structural change’The report cites Royal Dutch Shell’s recent dividend cut, bankruptcies in the US shale industry and Repsol’s decision to write off €4.8bn ($5.4bn) of assets last year as part of its net-zero strategy all to be “symptoms of an industry undergoing structural change”.It adds that the growth of renewable alternatives competing more frequently with fossil fuels on both price and scale, as well as an expected 2% year-on-year decline in global demand for carbon products in line with the Paris agreement, will serve to put huge pressure on existing financial models within the industry.“Many companies will be forced to write off assets, cancel investment or even go bust. Even companies which remain profitable will make far less money than before,” the analysis states.“Investors will be hit because as returns fall, there will be less capital available for dividends and interest payments. Markets might sell down stock in anticipation of peak demand long before assets are written down.”Many countries around the world have begun devising climate policies to penalise heavy emitters in the push for net zero, attaching an extra layer of risk to investment in an industry that is already under significant pressure to decarbonise. Demise of fossil fuels could destabilise developing economiesCountries whose economies are heavily dependent on export revenues from carbon products – particularly less-developed petrostates such as Venezuela, Ecuador, Libya, Algeria, Nigeria and Angola – face a risk of financial instability as these trends play out over the coming years.It is an issue recently highlighted by the International Energy Agency (IEA) and Opec, which warned underdeveloped oil-exporting nations would be most impacted by the recent collapse in oil prices amid the pandemic, highlighting the need to diversify.The IEA recently suggested coronavirus is expected to trigger a $400bn annual decline in investment across the entire energy industry during 2020, with the oil and gas sector accounting for the deepest cuts – almost a third, year-on-year – and spending on coal falling by a quarter compared to 2019 levels.While renewables will also take a hit, the slowdown will be less severe, according to the watchdog, and with strong calls emerging for a “green transition” to be built into post-pandemic economic recovery packages, there is significant potential for new policy introductions that will further squeeze the fossil fuels industry.
