Perry kept a low profile during her brief tenure. While she made an attempt to visit member gyms, she made very few public statements and offered little vision for the organization. She also appeared in front of a congressional panel to outline the strides the organization was making but her answers were canned and offered little specifics..
But when is the life cycle of a plant really completed? I guess it is only after the original seeds led to a new generation of germinable seeds. If the experiment cannot show biological adaptation thru genetic selection to be on the Moon then there is no real success, in my opinion. Otherwise, the experiment could lead to a new branch in the phylogenetic tree of life.

Geological Survey did not register a seismic event in Ontario on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day and there were no reports to the American Meteor Society, ruling out comets or meteors, and leaving a cryoseism, or frost quake, as a likely explanation.A rare phenomenon, cryoseisms usually “occur when temperatures go from above to below freezing,” says CBC News meteorologist Michelle Leslie.”Water in the surrounding soil and rocks freezes. As water freezes, it expands, putting pressure on the dirt and rocks,” she says.”When the pressure build up is too much, the dirt or rocks will crack, and you hear a loud boom.”They tend to occur between midnight and dawn, the coldest time of night and are very localized, so residents a few blocks away may not have heard the Christmas Eve or Christmas day booms.In Toronto, an extreme cold weather alert was in effect Tuesday, and temperatures were well below freezing in the GTA and surrounding areas.Some 250,000 residents in Toronto were without power following the major ice storm and tens of thousands are in their sixth day without electricity.Editor’s Note: This story has been rewritten to acknowledge a previously published story by Global Toronto titled “Mysterious Christmas Eve ‘boom’ heard and felt around GTA.” Parts of our story resembled too closely the original Global article..
