Divine Performing Arts Provide 'Eternal Truths' - Geologist One geologist who saw Divine Performing Arts in Boston now has a rekindled interest in ancient Chinese culture. Let's take a look. One staff member of Boston University was very touched by Divine Performing Arts when he saw the show at the weekend. Geologist Robert Scoch has a passion for the study of ancient cultures. He says the traditional moral values woven in to Divine Performing Arts Chinese Spectacular are universal, irrespective of ethnic background. [Robert Scoch, Boston University Geologist]: I think what we see here, I will call eternal truths. A message that stands for something we can all believe in. Something that is really good for the whole world. These are not just views that are for one people or another people. This is really something for all of humanity. This coming from the gods, as the name says from the Divine. So I think this is something all of us can appreciate and learn from, and enjoy. Mr Schoch hopes more people will be able to see the performance on its 80 city global-tour. [Robert Scoch, Boston University Geologist]: I think it is wonderful that they are bringing this all over the world. They are bringing the culture of classical China, ancient China, traditional China and bringing it to a modern contemporary society, modern audience. And as I understand it, really reviving this and restoring it to its rightful place. NTD Boston.

Exeter Resource Chief Geologist Glen Van Kerkvoort Speaks at China Mining 2010 FINANCE VIDEO: Exeter Resources (TSE:XRC) (AMEX:XRA) Chief Geologist Glen Van Kerkvoort Speaks at China Mining 2010. Glen Van Kerkvoort graduated with 1st class Honours from the CODES Special Research Centre at the University of Tasmania in 1995. He has been exploring in South America for over 15 years and during that time has worked extensively on various world class deposits. He discovered the Don Sixto epithermal vein deposit in 1996 during a regional exploration program which covered an area of 60000 square kilometers in Argentina's Mendoza province. In the late 1990's he worked as a senior geologist with Barrick on a number of projects including the massive Pascua-Lama high sulphidation gold-silver deposit (22.5 million ounces of gold and 718 million ounces of silver). Glen later managed regional exploration for Brancote at their 3 million ounce gold low sulphidation vein deposit at Esquel. When Meridian Gold took over Brancote in 2002 he moved to the position of exploration manager for the newly registered company of Patagonia Gold Plc and set up exploration centres in both Argentina and Chile. Glen commenced with Exeter in 2005. He has been intimately involved in Exeter's recent discoveries at both Caspiche in Chile and Cerro Moro in Argentina. As the Chief Geologist his responsibilities include providing geological and technical support on Exeter's projects, guiding regional exploration, and finding new opportunities in order to ensure the companies continued ...
US Ambassador Urges Release of American Geologist in China For more news visit ☛ The US Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman is calling on the Chinese regime to release an American geologist detained for more than three years in China. Huntsman spoke to the press after the geologists' appeal for release was rejected last week at the Beijing High People's Court. The US Ambassador to China, Jon Huntsman expressed disappointment on Friday, after the High Court in Beijing rejected an appeal to release American geologist Xue Feng. Xue, born in China, is a naturalized US citizen. He's been detained in China since November 2007 over the acquisition and sale of an oil industry database. Last July, he was sentenced to eight years in prison for trafficking state secrets. Then the US State Department started calling on the Chinese regime to release him. [Jon Huntsman, US Ambassador to China] "I'm extremely disappointed in the outcome, although it wasn't completely unexpected. The original sentence was upheld, that of eight years in prison and a 200000 RMB (Renminbi) fine. This has been a long, difficult and painful, painful ordeal for Xue Feng, but not only for Xue but also for his wife Nan and his two kids, Rachel and Alex. We have remained in regular contact with his family." Xue had negotiated the sale of an oil industry database to his then employer— the Colorado-based consultancy IHS Inc. He says the database was only classified as a state secret after the sale had gone through. Supporters of Xue maintain that he didn't ...

Chris Landau Oil Geologist "The TRUTH about the BP (BS) Disaster" on Rense Radio 1/4 Full Radio Interview: BP Blown out well should not be pressure tested. Chris Landau (geologist) NOTHING HAS CHANGED. THE WELL IS NOT ALIVE. IT HAS NOT HEALED ITSELF. Mark Hafle, BP's senior drilling engineer testified to the MMS on May 28, 2010 that the well had lost integrity and that thousands of barrels of mud had been lost down this well during drilling. This meant that the formation integrity had blown out. Reports at the hearings in May also indicated that the LOW positive pressure tests on the day of the blowout on April 20, 2010 had passed but the negative pressure tests had failed, so the well was not properly sealed. This happened within a few hours of the blowout. The cement-casing structure is compromised. The well had ballooned out and THE FORMATION HAD BLOWN OUT, long before the blowout occurred. BP, do you not have a single geologist at your company that can tell you what that means? It means you can not seal this well. Pressure testing will only blow the cement casing structure to pieces, if it is not already gone. Whose brainless idea was it to drill the directional wells 5 feet away and parallel to the existing well to weaken the formation structure further, so more casing formation strength is lost? Could those pointless, worthless relief wells not have been drilled at least 150 meters (500 feet) away from the existing well and then come in at right angles to minimize formation destruction? Solution Let the well flow as fast as you can ...
Geologist NW US predictions: "Seismic Window" in Pacific Ring of Fire & Earthquake Fish (in SoCal) Geologist Jim Berkland gives us background information on familiar anomalies (spatial and earth) that clue us to upcoming earthquakes. Berkland was famous for predicting the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake in San Francisco (also known as the Quake of '89 and the World Series Earthquake). Jim Berkland: "Seismic Window" (Highest Tidal Force): 19 - 26 Mar 2011, then next closest approach of the moon will be in 2016.
Structural Geology Research with Dr. Randy Merrett Dr. Randy Merrett is an Associate Professor in the Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Texas. Dr. Marrett's research concentrates on deformation processes in the upper continental crust where folds, faults, and opening-mode fractures are the most important products. This work is applicable to a wide range of human concerns such as natural hazards (eg, earthquakes, volcanoes) and the flow of fluids through rock (eg, hydrocarbons, water, contaminants). Some common themes that relate his disparate interests are quantitative field observations and ***ysis, especially using techniques that address spatial and size scaling of structures. Dr. Marrett currently has on-going projects that address active faulting and geyser eruption patterns in the Central Andes of Argentina and Chile, detachment folding and curved orogenic belt development in the Sierra Madre Oriental of Mexico, and opening-mode fracturing in numerous areas.

Geologist/BP 'optimist': "A high probability that there could be some damage" to well Don Van Nieuwenhuise interview, CNN, July 13, 2010: Rush Transcript Excerpts Don Van Nieuwenhuise, director of Professional Geosciences Programs at the University of Houston: (at 5:10 in) A high probability that there could be some damage [to the well] (at 6:15) There will be no oil coming out of it... unless there is a leak somewhere... One of the issues they're trying to do is look at some seismic so they can take a look at the subsurface and make sure there's no leaks in the subsurface.'

Harvard Geology Field Trip to Italy, 2010 I had the pleasure of traveling to Italy with a Harvard Undergraduate course, called Sedimentary Stratigraphy, which I have been auditing. I went along in order to film the trip for the Harvard Earth and Planetary Science Department. Check out the resulting vid! Some cool tidbits: The music for the video was made by a local geologist and our field guide. The first song is actually composed "by the earth." Different pieces of scientific data from the period when the dinosaurs went extinct were assigned different instruments. For example, the asteroid impact that (most likely) killed the dinosaurs caused a huge spike in the rare element Iridium. That means that the rocks that were deposited at the time of the asteroid impact had an abnormally high amount of iridium in them. The iridium abundance in the rocks can be plotted on a graph. In the song, bells were assigned to iridium abundance, so at the point in the song where you here a big crash of bells, that is actually the iridium spike caused by asteroid impact! Pretty cool, huh? Its called "geophonics." I'd like to especially thank The Earth and Planetary Science department, and the teaching staff of the EPS 182: Sedimentary Stratigraphy course (Ryan and Francis) for letting me come along.

Geologist Says Major Earthquake Imminent for California - Jim Berkland Interviewer is Bil Carroll KFI 640 am Los Angeles Within days of the Sendai event, retired geologist Jim Berkland began sounding warnings that another earthquake could occur, specifically in California or off its coast, on or about March 19. Berkland has a remarkable reputation for earthquake forecasting; in fact, many credit him with predicting the Loma Prieta Earthquake of October 17, 1989, commonly known as the "World Series Earthquake" because many San Francisco residents, who otherwise might have become casualties, were in the Candlestick Park stadium at the time, anticipating Game 3 (later rescheduled). (On that account, only 67 people lost their lives, despite $6 billion in damage.) Berkland had warned that such an event might occur days before. Now he points out at least four risk factors: 1. The moon will be not only full, but at perigee. In fact this will be the closest perigee that the moon will have for the next five years. Experts have recently had to accept the role of tidal forces in the triggering of earthquakes. (See Maya Tolstoy et al., "Breathing of the Seafloor: Tidal Correlations of Seismicity at Axial Volcano," Geology, Vol. 30, June 2002, pp. 503--506.) 2. The next day will be the vernal equinox, which produces the equinoctial tides, another stressor on account of the earth's axial inclination. 3. The California coast has recently seen a massive and unexplained fish kill. Such fish kills, and aberrant behavior of pets and livestock, have been ...
