When your supervisor is away… | Western Physics and Astronomy --- What's Happening

A murder of Crows gathers to hear the squawking of the Elder Crow - who just now figured out way the group found my graph of averaging kernels so amusing!

Well done Henry! See his photos here:

Perhaps we should post a copy of this sign on the House next to the Echo Base? I guess it would have to be flipped left right first? :-)

UWUO Weather Guru Predicts Extreme Winter

excerpted from the London Freee Presss, 01 April 2014:

A real scientific study with formulas and stuff was released today by a bunch of scientists including Prof. R. Sica, Professor of Whether at The University of Western University Ontario. The study boldly predicts that the winter of 2013-2014 will be one of the coldest on record. Mustang Scientist Sica told this paper that: "we’ve gone over the results with a fine tooth comb and are highly certain that a combination of highs, lows and other emotions will result in a very cold winter, particularly in January and February 2014." Sica also said: “don’t put those snow shovels away until March.”

The study will be submitted to the prestigious journal Nauturel sometime this summer .

Read the full piece in the Toronto Star to appreciate the damage the Harper government is doing to the public by their attack on environmental science.

'Eureka moment' provides unique opportunity for students #westernu


Western News reporter Jason Winders quoting Crow Emily in: 'Eureka moment' provides unique opportunity for students
“Suspenders. Don’t forget suspenders,” McCullough said. “We’re both kind of short. All of our Arctic gear, which is loaned to us, even the super-powered snowpants, are a little on the big side. So the suspenders keep your pants up. But, it’s even better than that.
