2023.05.31 00:47 TurtleTimeline Climate-resilient gardens: future-proof your landscape

The importance of climate-resilient landscapes

By Victoria Cummins / Turtle Timeline
In today’s world, it’s hard to ignore the undeniable reality of climate change. The impacts of rising temperatures, more frequent extreme weather events, ocean acidification, and changes in species behavior are just a few ecological changes that have become very apparent. We now find ourselves in a time where adaptation is not just a choice but a necessity, especially as younger generations come of age.
That’s why creating a climate-resilient garden or landscape is not only a deep and profound way to take care of the earth, but a necessity for our survival as a species.
A climate-resilient landscape offers us a proactive and practical way to navigate the uncertainties of our changing climate, while also reconnecting in ways that may have been lost from the generations before us.
By prioritizing ecological balance, and conserving resources, climate-resilient landscapes provide sustainable solutions that benefit humans and the intricate web of life on Earth. In this article, we will explore and delve into the three key elements that define resilient landscapes, in hopes that we can translate these into our home gardens and beyond.

Storing water in the landscape: efficient water management techniques

Water is life, and without it, we wouldn’t exist. Through large-scale industrialization and the misuse of water, the hydrological cycle has been broken in many places across the world. Without concerted efforts to repair and restore the hydrological cycle, the scarcity of water will persist and worsen.
In the garden, we are presented with the opportunity to work with water rather than depleting it from a local fresh source. By employing efficient water management techniques, we can transform our gardens into regenerative and abundant havens that not only conserve water but also begin to restore the greater watershed.
Rainwater harvesting stands as a cornerstone of water sustainability, allowing us to capture the gift of rainfall and channel it where it’s needed most. A common phrase used in permaculture and greater water harvesting communities is: “Slow it, Spread, it, Sink it.”
Embracing the practices of systems such as permaculture, we can design our landscapes to include techniques such as swales and terraces, strategically directing and retaining water to nourish our plants and replenish the groundwater reserves.
Store water in containers such as rain cisterns and apply materials that make use of local waste streams and store water in the soil like wood chips. Select drought-tolerant plant species that reduce evaporation and minimize and even eliminate the need for additional irrigation.
Work with the rain instead of allowing it to run directly into roadways and farm fields. Collectively through these mindful approaches, we become stewards of water, recognizing its life-giving ability and ensuring its responsible use in the garden – and beyond!

Soil health: building a strong foundation

Today you might hear someone call soil “dirt”, but the truth is, our soil is so much more than that. All life on Earth can be traced back to the minerals found in our soil. From the tiniest microorganisms to the grandest trees and biggest creatures, the essential elements and nutrients provided by soil minerals are the building blocks that sustain and support life. It’s estimated that a single teaspoon of healthy soil can contain billions of microorganisms!
On top of this, the healthiest and most successionally advanced ecosystems on our planet are characterized by the presence of thriving and rich soil. In the garden, we can mimic these same environments by enriching our soil with practices such as:
By feeding your soil you are in turn feeding your plants, which is a much different concept than the modern idea of adding fertilizer sourced from across the world solely to “feed” your plants. What we really need to do is feed our soil, which will establish a robust foundation that heals through water infiltration, carbon sequestration, and overall ecosystem health.

Choosing plants that allow for life to thrive

On our journey to future-proof our gardens for the challenges of climate change, the selection of plants takes on a huge role in cultivating an environment that fosters resilience and enables life to thrive.
You have probably seen a traditional garden with a lawn that contains only ornamental flowers and requires many inputs such as fertilizer, pesticides, and water in order to sustain itself. Outside of some pollination and aesthetic beauty, this ecosystem takes much more from the earth (and from us!) than it gives back, depleting instead of enriching the landscape.
With a more mindful approach, we can choose plants with characteristics that are adaptable to changing climatic conditions, capable of withstanding droughts, and resilient to extreme weather events. In your garden, choose plants with some of the following in mind:

Edible plants

Our modern food system is broken. By integrating edible plants into our gardens, it not only offers the joy of homegrown food but also enhances our self-sufficiency and food security.
Cultivating a diverse array of perennial edible plants, from fruits and vegetables to herbs and medicinal plants, we not only nourish ourselves but break the unhealthy patterns of supporting large-scale, mono-cropped, and industrialized agriculture. We rely on ourselves and in turn work with our neighbors and communities to trade what’s available.

Native plants

Choosing native plants for our gardens allows us to embrace the inherent wisdom of our local ecosystem. Native plants have coevolved with the regional climate, soil conditions, and wildlife, making them well-adapted to the local environment and known to thrive. They often serve multiple functional roles as well such as fertilizing the soil, providing food, and pollination services.
Incorporating native plants, we create habitats that support local biodiversity, provide food and shelter for native wildlife, and restore the ecological balance that is crucial for the long-term health of our landscapes.

Drought-tolerant plants

Amidst the increasing water scarcity challenges posed by climate change, selecting drought-tolerant plants is a wise choice for our gardens as it means we have to water less. These plants have evolved mechanisms to thrive with minimal water inputs, reducing and eliminating the need for irrigation and conserving precious water resources.

Providing a refuge for wildlife

Our gardens can serve as sanctuaries, offering a refuge for wildlife in the midst of urbanization and habitat loss. Many species on the brink of extinction have been observed to migrate toward more rich ecosystems that better suit their needs.
Intentionally including plants that provide food, shelter, and nesting sites for birds, butterflies, bees, and other beneficial creatures, we create havens of biodiversity. The bonus of that is experiencing the joy that these creatures bring while in our presence.

Plants with multiple uses

Plants with multiple uses are an invaluable addition to our climate-resilient gardens. By selecting plants that offer various benefits beyond their aesthetic appeal, we maximize the productivity and functionality of our landscapes. These plants may provide edible fruits, leaves, or roots for our sustenance, medicinal properties for healing, fibers for crafting, or even nitrogen fixation to enrich the soil.
Embracing the concept of multi-purpose plants allows us to optimize space and resources, ensuring that every plant contributes to the overall resilience and sustainability of our garden ecosystem.

Conclusion: creating your climate-resilient garden

The journey of creating a climate-resilient garden transcends mere gardening—it becomes an act of profound stewardship and care for ourselves, the land, and the generations yet to come.
Keeping the principles of climate adaptation, soil health, native and drought-tolerant plants, and mindful plant choices at the forefront of our garden design, we embark on a transformative path. We become guardians of the Earth’s vitality, cultivating spaces that nurture not only our present selves but also the future versions of who we will become, as well as the legacy we leave for the next generations.
The rewards of these conscious gardening practices extend far beyond the beauty and bounty we witness in our gardens—they are imprinted on the very fabric of our existence, intertwining with the threads of our interconnectedness and echoing through time.

2023.05.30 16:09 joebigtuna Peninsula Receptacle NEC Change

Codes, inspections, permits. Everyone’s favorite topics in this sub. Most of us are DIYers and generally try to follow code when we can but sometimes as the code is just silly as shit, which I think is something we can all agree on. Recently, my wife informed me, it is no longer within code to install a receptacle on the side or end of a peninsula/island. The receptacle now has to come out of the countertop itself. I’m relatively young but grew up building and renovating houses for my grandfather, who was at one point the largest residential building contractor in Northwest Indiana. I genuinely cannot believe this change in code. I’ve wired hundreds of islands/peninsulas this way. The study cited for the code change claimed there were 9,700 individuals treated for burns from 1991-2020 due to overturned home appliances plugged into the side of islands/peninsulas.
What are your thoughts on this change? Anyone else think it’s somewhat ridiculous?

2023.05.30 06:57 TravelAidePH WEATHER UPDATE: Typhoon “Betty” [Luzon][Visayas][Mindanao]

Tropical Cyclone Bulletin #17 - Typhoon "Betty"
Issued at 05:00 am, 31 May 2023 (Valid for broadcast until the next advisory to be issued at 11:00 AM today)


Track & Intensity
Heavy Rainfall Outlook - Forecast accumulated rainfall from today to tomorrow afternoon - 50-100 mm: Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, La Union, Abra, and the western portion of Benguet. - Under these conditions, flooding and rain-induced landslides are possible, especially in areas highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards as identified in hazard maps and in localities that experienced considerable rainfall in recent days.
Severe Winds - No changes in areas under Wind Signal Nos. 1 and 2 from the previous bulletin. - Minor to moderate impacts caused by gale-force winds remain possible within the areas where Wind Signal No. 2 is hoisted. - Minimal to minor impacts from strong winds (i.e., strong breeze to near gale strength) are also possible within any of the areas where Wind Signal No.1 is currently in effect. - The enhanced Southwest Monsoon will bring occasional to frequent wind gusts over Bicol Region, Western Visayas, Aurora, Quezon, the northern portion of mainland Palawan including Calamian and Cuyo Islands, Mindoro Provinces, Romblon, and the remaining areas of Ilocos Region and Cordillera Administrative Region that are not under any Wind Signal.
  • Under the influence of Typhoon BETTY and the enhanced Southwest Monsoon, a marine gale warning remains in effect over the seaboards of Northern Luzon, eastern seaboards of Central Luzon, Southern Luzon, and Visayas.
  • Typhoon BETTY is forecast to slowly accelerate today through tomorrow morning while moving generally northward over the waters east of Batanes, although some wobbling in its movement (e.g., sudden turns to the north northeast or north northwest) is possible in the near term (e.g., next 12 hours).
  • Afterwards, the typhoon will turn more northeastward beginning tomorrow afternoon or evening. On the forecast track, BETTY will exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) tomorrow evening or on Friday early morning. Outside the PAR, the tropical cyclone will pass very close or make landfall in the vicinity of central Ryukyu Islands by mid-Friday (e.g., Okinawa Is.)
  • BETTY is forecast to steadily weaken over the next five days due to cooler ocean waters (caused by upwelling of cooler waters in its wake), dry air intrusion, and increasing vertical wind shear.
  • The typhoon may be downgraded into a severe tropical storm tonight or tomorrow morning and into a tropical storm on Friday evening or Saturday morning. However, given the extent of the effect of dry air intrusion on the typhoon, a faster weakening rate within the forecast period is not ruled out.
  • BETTY may begin its transition into a post-tropical cyclone on Saturday or Sunday, although this will occur outside the PAR

2023.05.30 00:17 Thin_Ad_3303 Odd green light in Utah desert??

Odd green light in Utah desert??
Ok, so I don’t have a clue what to google, who to ask or where to post this. I was camping 5/24/23 about 4.5-5 miles outside of Goblin Valley State Park close to Hanksville, UT. It’s an international dark sky park and I’ve been able to see the Milky Way with naked eye on clear nights there. I didn’t notice this really odd green light in my pictures (taken on an iPhone 13) until the next morning and I can’t figure out what the hell it is.
For context, the weather was pretty clear (likely around mid to high 50’sF)and we had a good view of the stars most of the night. The first three pictures were taken all at 22:15. I am 98% certain there were no other campers within at least a 4.5-5mile diameter, and fairly certain it would’ve been even further in the direction of the light, which was to the northwest. A lot of campers in this area are respectful of the dark sky and I’ve never seen any lasers or projectors being used, so it doesn’t seem to me like this would be the cause. The only thing I’ve been able to think of is airglow, but the light just seems to be in such odd shapes.
The airglow conclusion doesn’t feel right to me and I’ve never seen, let alone taken a picture of, something like this before. To make it all weirder, after being extremely relaxed the entire night to this point, the dog with us took off barking like he was chasing something in the same direction of the green light. We had to physically bring him back to our site, where he laid down facing the ridge and growling for 5ish minutes. He hadn’t taken off or even barked at all before this, even with bats flying and lizards obviously moving. Maybe it was a jackrabbit, but it was really odd for this dog to take off out of sight in pursuit of something.
I’m welcome to any and all theories; at this point, I’m totally lost on what it could be. The shapes and bright spots in the light and surrounding blue hue are captivating to me and don’t look like spherical orbs, dust particles, or any other camera tricks. Other pictures included just to get an idea of the landscape.
Thanks for your opinions 🙂

2023.05.29 22:20 El_Captain_Steve 2004 Mini Cooper S won't start

Been trying to get an 04 Mini Cooper to start that I acquired from a friend for the low cost of hauling it away. It use to run until the starter died, then it sat for a couple years, so I'm sure the pads and rotors and other things need replaced, but I'm not interested in those yet as I can't get the thing to start.
Got the starter out, it was bad. It tested bad, so I know for a fact it was absolutely shot. Got a new one and it tested good, so at least I know the starter isn't the issue of the new starter.
I have also changed the oil and put 5 gallons of fresh gas in it, as it was sitting for so long on empty I trust neither of those things to be of value.
Replaced the battery as it was bad as it had sat so long to no longer be able to hold a charge. Hooking it up to a jump starter and a fully charged battery didn't make a difference to the starting process. Had so much starting power going through that thing I should be happy the car didn't catch fire. Needless to say though, I don't think the failure to start is not enough voltage or cold cranking amps here in the 90 degree Indiana weather.
Changed the spark plugs and the spark plug wires as the vehicle had plenty of miles on it before hand, and the level of fouling on those things was intense. They may have been good, but were cheap enough to replace and terrible looking enough that I doubt they had much time left for this world. I also checked the wires twice to make sure I have them in the correct firing order.
When I go to start the vehicle I have it in neutral (manual transmission), e-brake on, clutch and brake depressed all the way in, then I turn the key and get a solid click like it wants to turn off, then it stops sending anything to the stater. No mix of clicks, no digging like the starter is trying, it's like it gives the starter half a second to do it's job and then the car cuts it off completely for failing to do so.
The car produces no codes when I scan the ODB2, but when I go into the test mode in the gauge cluster, test 14 returns several codes other than the 000000 (all clear) code. I get 662800, 302800, and 672800. I can find stuff all over on how to enter the test mode to get the codes but nothing on what those codes mean. They could be important, they could be codes just there to mock me.
So at this point I'm turning to people smarter than me (everyone else that isn't me) in hopes that anyone has and idea what to do at this point. I debate trying to push start it, but the tires and brakes are in such condition that I fear doing that in a residential neighborhood would not make me popular. I'm only comfortable risking my own safety.
If any pictures would help, I'll more than happily try to get them. Just let me know what to get.

2023.05.29 21:37 Conscious-Seaweed-95 Verticillium wilt?

I noticed this week that our red maple had some leaves wilting. I figured it was due to heat/drought stress due to the abnormal weather here in Indiana the past several weeks.
On closer examination I noticed these lines on the leaves, with the leaves seeming to fade inwards and wilt. Closest match I can find in my research is verticillium wilt.
I erred on the side of caution and cut out all affected branches I could find and immediately incinerated them. But curious if my diagnosis was correct, and if there's anything else I can do to help save this tree.

2023.05.29 18:20 Filthy-Mammoth [online][Heavily homebrewed 5e][PST] From Humble Farmers to possible War Heroes, will you respond to the Call to arms in the Far Reaches?

So first off, who am I?
Hello Reddit, I am Beau, am a 26 year old Guy from the Pacific northwest that has been DMing DnD 5e for 6 years, has been dabbling in other systems for the last 4, and has had Roleplaying games apart of my entire life thanks to my dad who was a veteran of a hobby since his his days in high school
I have a deep seated love of stories and storytelling, and I have found over the years that TTRPGs are some of the most Primal of storytelling mediums, tapping into the same energy and need for humanity to tell stories that our ancestors did around a campfire for centuries.
Like those ancestors around their campfire, those around the table tell a tale that is a mixing pot of different views and experiences, of yes and and no buts, of tears of both laughter and sorrow, of a connection to a story that only can be made when its your story. And that kind of connection is a powerful thing.
I love this hobby because I love stories and the way they are told, and I hope to at some point create a community of people that share that passion so that I can make many more stories for the years to come.
I know that was a lot, but I hope knowing that about me will help you understand the kind of game I am trying to run.
Next, a intro to the setting and then some info about the campaign:
Farreach is a land cold and unforgiving, those that do not respect it quickly die. be it from man, beast, or nature.
Since the gods died in the event of world’s crux Farreach has, like the rest of the world, been broken apart, small villages and city states dot the land fending for themselves over the years as the ruins of the old world lay lingering as a memory of what once was thousands of years before.
But this is all about to change.
A young man, a Certain Peter Lebedev, has claimed to be the heir to the Throne of the Far Reaches that sits in the ruins of the old capital Alevichi. He shares the name of those once mighty Czars that ruled the land before World Crux, and using it he has called upon ancient rights and Alliances to Take back the old Empire with the help of the Sorcerous Dwarves of Blackspire,
From the Ruins of Alevichi hidden behind the Northern mountains and Dwarven Strongholds of the North Peter plans to retake his birthright, be it through force or diplomacy.
But not all accept his rule.
To the South in the fertile valleys that make many Farmlands sits the city state of Reusta, here a Rebellion is Brewing. a group of like minded people that care not for the idea of being ruled over and wish to keep their independences. While they do not have the resources of the Dwarves they have the food to feed an army and the call of the defense of freedom to rally men behind.
They will push out this so-called Czar and establish an order, a republic, where each town is free to do as they see best for them and not be under the thumb of one man.
And So a civil war brews between these two, the Torm sit to the north watching their southern neighbors fight and the villages between these two factions will be caught in the crossfires.
Including the Town of Whitefield.
It is a simple place, home to only 300 or so souls. fields of white wheat grow in abundance, children play in the streets and elders groan about the on coming cold of the harsh winters. Here is were those that will one day be called great call home. Simple folk that have done little more than live in this blessed place do not realize that soon fate will come marching to their doorstep and call them to greatness.....
So what is Farreach?
Farreach is one place in the homebrew setting of Tanriszdir that I have been working on for the past 3 years. This campaign will be the 2nd campaign I have ran in this setting with many more planned in the future.
I made Farreach as a place due to my love of Folklore and fairy tales and I had been playing the Witcher and looking into the stories and culture of the Slavic people at the time of creation, naturally it bleed into the world I was making.
In farreach you will find Dark Taiga Forests, frost covered mountains and sub-zero tundra. But warmer weather can be found to the south with rolling fields, Marshy bogs and Clay filled hills. Farreach is a harsh but beautiful land that only the strong survive and thrive in, will your character make their mark in this rugged wilderness dotted with small villages? Or will you be lost to the trees and that which lurks within them?
What is this campaign about?
Farreach is a place on the cusp of a massive social and political change, 2 factions, the Empire trying to reform and the independents trying to keep their own freedoms and cultures alive, buttheads as they try to take over the north to shape it in their own image. This story isn't so much about one side vs the other however, yes you can if you want to join one of the sides in the war, or even make your own 3rd faction, this campaign is less about the war itself and more the people being affected by it. The day to day people that have to deal with a war looming over them as they try to etch out a life in a cold unforgiving landscape filled with monsters of all kinds. The players will be starting as level 0 commoners dealing with small scale problems and will find themselves burdened with more and more responsibilities as they prove themselves to be the ones most capable of taking care of the North’s problems.
What are the Players' roles in this campaign?
The players, and the party at large, are Hope. They are hope that things will get better, that life will get just a bit less shitty, that everyone will get to go home to their families at the end of it all.
Because of this I as the DM will test and attempt to snuff out this hope constantly. PCs and NPCs alike can and will die if the dice will it, horrible things will happen to good people, bad people, and neutral people, children are at just as much risk as everyone else. And there will be a give and take of consequences constantly as every action the party, and the NPCs around them take, will mold the world around them for both the better and the worse.
This is not a campaign for the faint of heart, it's not a game of heroes that never fail or who will always win in the end. It's about being the embodiment of hope in a world with very little of it, of never giving up hope while everything around you tries to snuff it out. It's about moving forward no matter what because you have hope that things will turn out well in the end.
I know all that sounds fairly dramatic, but fuck it am a drama queen, it will get you a clue of what your in for if you join the game. That and I've had players I've tried to run this game with before assume that the hardships I would send their way was me just trying to tpk them and wouldn't even try, ironically enough losing hope despite being the ones who were supposed to embody it.
What kind of game is this?
I would say that it is an Open sandbox Dark fantasy, there is some hex crawling and a lot of what direction things go is mostly on the Players and their actions.
Some people would say that my games are Grim Dark, but I'd personally say that Grimdark is a shade too dark for what I try to achieve in my games. That said of course the games I run do get fairly dark and will go places that are uncomfortable at times, make sure you are ok with that if you want to join, and feel free to ask me directly what kind of themes I expect to see
What does this game do different from regular dnd 5e?
My games are heavily homebrewed, to the point I can't put all of the changes here and instead made a doc that I will later link that is full of rule changes and tweaks that I will be using. Consider this less 5e proper and more 5e adjacent
The Party will be starting at level 0 instead of level one as commoners and will have to come into their own (I suggest coming to the table with a couple extra character concepts on the off chance something really bad happens)
This Game will go from level 0 to level 10, maybe 12. This is not a story of high powered super people and is instead made for more down to earth low level characters.
All player characters will start from the same home town and will all know each other to a certain extent, this isn't a group of strangers coming together as it is a group of people that already know each other in at least passing
This Game will be connected to another game I am running, to help simulate the movements of the war around the PCs as they have their adventures I have 2 friends playing a board game of my creation to help give the game a more natural backdrop of events, things will happen that even I the DM can't always expect.
What can I as a Player expect from you, the DM?
A well built world that I have spent years making
A willingness to let things happen that can change the course of the game and the world as a whole moving forward into other campaigns
A genuine interest in telling a story and a desire to see your characters grow over the course of the campaign
Difficult combat, min maxing not required but common sense and tactics are
Difficult choices, this campaign is not a black and white campaign of good vs bad
A sense of humor, life isn't all death and darkness
a rehaul or creations of rules as needed to help tell the kind of stories I aim for.
a willingness to bend to rule and to use the “rule of cool” but still being able to use the rules
What do you as a DM expect from me as a player?
A willingness to take the world seriously
Not poking at the rules of the game to exploit them or disclaim a lack of realism
Respect for me and the other players at the table
To make a character that is grounded in the setting and type of story trying to be told
A willingness to roleplay and to be your character in the world
A willingness to let bad things happen if your actions or the dice lead to an impossible situation
A Willingness to still more forward with the game even as Bad things happen to your character(s)
The Ability to commit to the game long term, my games take time
The Ability to take initiative, taking plot hooks that interest you, or exploring to find others that do (mostly don't stand around waiting for me to tell you what to do)
Am fine with all of this, how do I sign up and when is the game?
The Game will take place Sundays starting the Earliest at 9am pst and going as late as 3:30pm pst, the exact time will be decided once the group is put together but it will be sometime around then
I have 2 people that want to play already and I am looking for a maximum of 4 more players
The Game will take place on roll20, discord and a good mic is required to play
Read this quick Lore Blurb to get a basic understanding of the campaign world and your characters place into it
Setting Primer
Read, or at least skim, through this Document, it is filled with rule changes to the game I am running, these are not minor changes and should not be ignored when deciding if you want to play
Homebrew Doc
Fill out this application, it is a mix of personality test, confirmation that you understand what kind of game your getting into, and information for how to contact you
This Application will be up until the I find players I think I can gel with. Once I have found people I will close the application, if you can enter an application there is still a chance you can get in.

2023.05.29 17:32 Sc4rlettH4wk Please Give These a Good Home! [H] Lumineth, Sylvaneth, and Death AOS lots, AOS bits box [W] Paypal, Marvel Crisis Protocol Terrain or Certain Characters [Loc] Northwest Indiana

EDIT: All I’ve got left is the Sylvaneth Lot.
I tried to get my friends and family into AOS and had no luck. I have a fairly large Lumineth Lot and a few hundred points of Sylvaneth and Death(Soulblight and Nighthaunt) I would love to get rid of all of it in a single go. If somebody where to take all the minis and the bits I'd probably let it go for significantly less than what it is worth. I am REALLY motivated to get rid of these AOS lots, I will not split within lots, but I am willing to let someone take just the Lumineth, just the Death, or just the Sylvaneth. If you're interested and would make good use of these, please make any offer. I'm less worried about money and more worried about somebody enjoying these piles of plastic. Here's what I have:
As far as trades, I play Marvel Crisis Protocol and am looking for a sweet new mat, I want more terrain (mdf, official, and 3d printed are all fine) and there are some characters I don't have, mostly looking for Convocation, Dark Dimension, Black Order, Hydra, or Cabal (i've got a lot of good guys lol)
I also would love more dice, measuring tools, etc. pretty much anything for this game outside of Avengers, X-men, Brotherhood, Web Warriors, or Spider Foes

  • PE-23-627: 1.70 g/t Au over 68.00 m, including 7.89 g/t Au over 9.70 m, at a vertical depth between 135 and 195 m;
  • PE-22-588: 8.68 g/t Au over 4.00 m, including 19.89 g/t Au over 1.50 m, at a vertical depth of approximately 140 m;
Jacques Trottier, PhD, Executive Chairman of Amex Exploration commented, "Today's results are largely focused on the expansion and definition of the Team Zone to the east, following the general northwest-southeast trend of the system. We are very excited to be seeing both high grade mineralization and longer intervals of near-continuous gold within the system as we continue to advance our understanding of the Team Zone. With any new zone it takes time to understand the system through modelling and drilling. The oriented drilling that we have been doing on the Team Zone since September has proven to be very helpful in targeting. We have identified five distinct orientations of gold-bearing veins and are adjusting drill targeting as we advance. Upcoming drilling, along with pending holes, will continue to delineate the zone at 50 metres centres as well as expanding along trend, particularly to the northwest towards the previously discovered 210 Gold Zone. This work will define the gold potential at the Team Zone."
The Team Zone sits within the Beaupre Rhyolite, host to all significant gold occurrences at Perron, at the contact of the Normetal Fault and approximately 600 m north of the High Grade Zone. Gold mineralization occurs within a relatively massive and silicified rhyolite host rock, within quartz-carbonate veins/veinlets containing pyrite, pyrrhotite, chalcopyrite, molybdenite, sphalerite and visible gold. Gold mineralization is also disseminated within the rhyolite host rock, in contrast with several other zones identified on the Project to date. Recently completed structural interpretation by Laurentia Exploration, geological consultants to Amex, has identified several distinct trends to gold-bearing veins in the Team Zone. Visible-gold-bearing quartz-sulfide veins occur on NNW, NE, and NS trends. Gold-bearing (but not visible) quartz-sulfide veins occur on E-W, NW, and NS trends. Drilling has been optimized to intercept as many as possible of these vein sets with each hole. Amex is currently conducting 50 metres spaced (3 dimensionally) definition drill of this system from surface to a depth of ~450 metres vertically. Drilling at Team Zone is ongoing and the Company is awaiting additional assay results which will be released once results are received.

Will they bloom this year?
Proverbial million dollar question I realize. I got excited when I first saw the new growth as I thought they were flower buds, but now I can’t tell. I’m in the Pacific Northwest, gulf island off of Vancouver Island to be specific. They bloomed last year, not prolifically, but still. I fertilized early spring, watered during the unusually warm weather we had. They are about 4 years old.

Pan American Silver Corp. (NYSE: PAAS) (TSX: PAAS) ("Pan American" or the "Company") today released results for 15 new infill and exploration drill holes totaling 14,122 metres at the Company's 100% owned La Colorada Skarn project in Zacatecas, Mexico.
This press release features multimedia. View the full release here:
La Colorada Skarn drill holes May 2023 (Graphic: Business Wire)
The most recent drill results include eight holes that were drilled to follow up on high-grade drill results reported in news releases dated July 21, 2022 and November 1, 2022. Hole D-96-10-22 returned two broad zones of mineralisation over 64 metres at 391 g/t Ag, 10.8% Pb and 8.5% Zn, including 23.25 metres at 914 g/t Ag, 25.19% Pb and 16.73% Zn, and a separate lower skarn zone over 135 metres at 37 g/t Ag, 1.13% Pb and 6.42% Zn.
"These new drill hole results both extend the 902 zone and confirm that there are multiple zones of higher grade within the limestone and skarn, which align with surrounding porphyry intrusives and epithermal veins," said Christopher Emerson, Pan American's Vice President Exploration and Geology. "We have now drilled over 20 holes into this area, which remains open to the west and northwest. The 2023 infill and exploration program of 28,000 metres from surface and underground drilling stations is currently underway.”
Drill highlights include:
  • D-96-10-22: 64.30 m at 391 g/t Ag, 0.13% Cu, 10.83% Pb and 8.50% Zn, including 23.25 m at 914 g/t Ag, 0.19% Cu, 25.19% Pb and 16.73% Zn and 135.70 m at 37 g/t Ag, 0.14% Cu, 1.13% Pb and 6.42% Zn
  • D-96-12-23: 109.55 m at 233 g/t Ag, 0.10% Cu, 6.62% Pb and 7.32% Zn, including 44.20 m at 487 g/t Ag, 0.15% Cu, 15.46% Pb and 10.12% Zn
  • D-96-09-22: 72.60 m at 98 g/t Ag, 0.07% Cu, 0.85% Pb and 4.11% Zn and 26.95 m at 162 g/t Ag, 0.05% Cu, 3.51% Pb and 3.52% Zn and 21.20 m at 123 g/t Ag, 0.11% Cu, 3.53% Pb and 8.63% Zn
  • D-96-11-22: 17.05 m at 165 g/t Ag, 0.12% Cu, 4.37% Pb and 9.33% Zn
  • U-138-22: 71.35 m at 193 g/t Ag, 0.15% Cu, 10.82% Pb and 9.27% Zn, including 57.95 m at 231 g/t Ag, 0.17% Cu, 13.11% Pb and 11.01% Zn
  • U-112-22: 53.15 m at
141 g/t Ag, 0.06% Cu, 5.84% Pb and 5.46% Zn, including 15.15 m at 243 g/t Ag, 0.08% Cu, 11.31% Pb and 8.28% Zn
  • D-15-02-22: 16.85 m at
121 g/t Ag, 0.28% Cu, 4.60% Pb and 9.58% Zn
  • D-93-06-23: 21.45 m at 304 g/t Ag, 0.17% Cu, 4.75% Pb and 2.55% Zn and 143.3 m at 27 g/t Ag, 0.10% Cu, 2.93% Pb and 4.68% Zn and 74.20 m at 49 g/t Ag, 0.25% Cu, 1.50% Pb and 4.36% Zn
Eight of the 15 drill holes reported in this news release are recent infill and extension holes that add definition to the high-grade areas, which are now drilled at roughly 30 metre spacing. Five infill drill holes: U-112-22, U-138-22, D-96-09-22, D-96-10-22 and D-93-06-23, confirm internal continuity of grade, similar to previously reported drill holes. The high-grade footprint has been extended approximately 50 metres to the northwest from the limit of prior drilling with recent holes D-96-11-22 and D-96-12-23 returning significant silver and base metal grades. This area remains open to the northwest where the ongoing drill program will continue to test further extension of the zone over the next few months from surface and underground drilling stations.
Exploration drilling in the 903 East mineralised zone was reduced in the fourth quarter of 2022 with a new focus on the high-grade area to the west. Recent results from S-101-22, the most southeast drill hole in the 903 zone, intercepts skarn mineralisation approximately 250 metres south of previous drilling. Drill hole D-09-04-22 intercepted mineralisation to the southeast of the central zone.

2023.05.28 02:34 MommaMeUh Looking for collar suggestions

We adopted our 11month old, spayed, chipped kitty in January. Before her time in the shelter, she was a stray. When we brought her home, we gave her a collar we purchased from Walmart. She promptly escaped it. No matter how many times a day we put it on, no matter how many days in a row, she never wore it longer than 15 minutes. So we just dropped it; she was indoors so decided it was a nonissue. Her first 3.5 months she was with us, she never tried to escape through the doors and never even went near the doors. She got her fill of outside through the window sills/seat or laying in the sun spots on the floors. But mid Aprilish, when the weather was getting nicer in S. Indiana, she became more and more interested in the outdoors and is was impossible to keep her in, so we gave up. She rarely stays out all night, she goes in and out like our dogs. When I see her outside, she’s in our fenced in backyard, our side door stoop, our side neighbor’s bushes, or our front yard in the front window or bushes outside the window; I don’t think she ventures too far, and our nearby neighbors know she belongs to us. We live in a small town of less than 800, on a dead end road; so we don’t have A LOT of people near and not much traffic comes our way. But since she’s in and out, I’d like her to wear a collar and tag or a collar with our info stitched in, just in case she ends up farther than I’m aware she goes. She’s fixed and microchipped, but I’d still like her to have a collar. She’s our first/only cat so I know nothing about cat collars other than I’ve heard that breakaways are musts for them. So, I’d like to be pointed in the direction of collars that will release if she’s ever in a jam outside, but ones that are difficult for her to Houdini herself out of. TIA!
