Here is a a spectacular display of bioluminescence on the coast of Jervis Bay in New South Wales. Bioluminescence is the emission of light by a living organisms, such as a fireflies, or in this case, dinoflagellates present in the surface layer of the ocean. Bioluminescence occurs widely in marine vertebrates and invertebrates, as well as in some fungi. In some animals, produced by symbiotic organisms such as bacteria, and in others it is produced by the animals themselves. ................................................................................................................................................................ #science #bioluminescence #animals #education

I hope this sort of crud don't come as any surprise: The United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)-backed Afghan forces have committed summary executions and other grave abuses without accountability. These strike forces have unlawfully killed civilians during night raids, forcibly disappeared detainees, and attacked healthcare facilities for allegedly treating insurgent fighters. Civilian casualties from these raids and air operations have dramatically increased in the last two years. The 53-page report, “‘They’ve Shot Many Like This’: Abusive Night Raids by CIA-Backed Afghan Strike Forces,” documents 14 cases from late 2017 to mid-2019 in which CIA-backed Afghan strike forces committed serious abuses, some amounting to war crimes. The US should work with the Afghan government to immediately disband and disarm all paramilitary forces that operate outside the ordinary military chain of command and cooperate with independent investigations of all allegations of war crimes and other human rights abuses. https://www.hrw.org/news/2019/10/31/afghanistan-cia-backed-forces-commit-atrocities ..................................................................................................................................................................... #politics #humanrights #cia #afghanistan #news

The garnet species is one of the biggest in the gem-stone arena, but I have never seen a sample of Uvarovite in the raw. Uvarovite, the rarest of the garnet family, is a chromium bearing silicate similar in composition to andradite and grossular garnets. This mineral shares the common crystalline form in the cubic system, and is consistently green. Uvarovite crystals are too small to be faceted into gemstones. However, plates of Uvarovite crystals are sometimes polished in cabochons and used as pendants. ................................................................................................................................................................. #science #mineralogy #garnet #nature #education
