Science story of the day: Yet another study confirms rapid temp rise

A collaboration between Oregon University and Harvard University has collated the available temperature record studies for the past 11,300 years (just after the end of the last major ice age).

In doing so, they've confirmed that the last two hundred years has seen a rise in temperature faster than anything seen previously. While we haven't hit the highest temperature point yet (this was seen in the first couple of thousand years after the glaciers withdrew), the study has confirmed the IPCC prediction that post 2100 the earth will be hotter than at any point in the current era.

Couple of new things - Paypal and Email

Yeah I know, by themselves they're not exactly new. However they're now part of the Angry Beanie experience.

Let's get the easy one out of the way first.

Email

Remember last week how we asked for feedback on how the shows are put together or anything Angry Beanie related? Well, one of the things that was brought up was being able to get email notifications of new content, whelp far be it for us to stop people getting access to our stuff, we obliged :)

Using Mailchimp, we've created three lists that you can subscribe to.

Feeeeedback

Over the years I've been doing this podcasting thing one of the hardest things I've found was getting feedback from the people who voluntarily sit down and listen to my efforts. It's not just validation I'm looking for (though let's be honest, anyone who does this likes hearing good things about their work) but useful constructive criticisms about formats, topics and so on.

With that in mind I thought I would highlight ways that you can get in contact with us here at Angry Beanie and let us know what you think about what we're doing and how we could improve.

Science story of the day - Meteor over the Urals

There really is only one news story to talk about today. The awesome spectacle of the meteorite breaking up over the Russian city of Chelyabinsk.

The Russian space agency Roscosmos has estimated that the meteorite was travelling at a speed of 30 kilometers per second when it exploded. To put that in perspective that's almost the same speed that the earth travels in orbiting the sun and is something like 88 times the speed of sound.

PETW this weekend

Just dropping a quick note to let you know that the next Purser Explores The World will be released this weekend rather than tonight. Will be worth the wait though, I'm going to be talking with history buff, teacher and twitter angry person Mike Stutchbery about the verification of Richard the thirds remains and what that actually means for us here in the 21st century.

With any luck For Science! shall be returning to the internet in the next couple of weeks, so you'll be able to get your science on.

Been a bit quiet lately

Been a little quiet lately on the Angry Beanie front so I thought I would do a bit of an update.

As you know, the first episode of Purser Explores The World is now out. It's a good chin wag with journalist Stilgherrian, Network Engineer Mark Newton and Systems Admin Liz Quilty on the nature of Tomorrows Geek. It runs a little longer than the usual PETW episode, but I think it works.

Purser Explores The World and For Science! return and something new

Okay here it is:

Purser Explores The World and For Science! will return for another go at Discovery Friday on the 25th January 2013.

For Science! will return for another year in which I, Maia Sauren and Magdeline Lum will continue to bring you science for real people, as well as revealing the science behind those things we've started to take for granted.
