BIEWENER: Well, that’s certainly one of the motivations for this work. We, actually, currently are collaborating with groups at MIT, Carnegie Mellon and NYU trying to understand how birds make path planning decisions when they’re flying and avoiding obstacles. And the goal there is to be able to understand how information taken with video cameras could be use to guide a small, micro air vehicle.
Selinunte, on the south coast between Mazara del Vallo and Sciacca, may not have such well preserved ruins, but its position on a coastal promontory carpeted with wild flowers and the celery that gives the site its name is hugely atmospheric. If you seek out Cave di Cusa, seven miles to the north east, chances are you’ll have it all to yourself.

Since the southern polar region is pointed towards the Sun in the summer, carbon dioxide frozen in the polar cap evaporates. This has the effect of thickening the atmosphere and increasing the surface pressure, which enhances the process by helping suspend dust particles in the air.

You would be better off to use the money to make a down payment on a house, or save it.

ELLIOTT: You know, there are a lot of institutional events. There are a lot of private events. There are faith events. Many supporters of same sex marriage are against holding a plebiscite for that reason. They’re worried the public debate could be hurtful to same sex couples. Others are against it because they reckon it’s not a good use of money.
