OAKLAND — It was the waning moments of a 33-13 loss to the Los Angeles Rams, and what was left of the home crowd was letting the Raiders have it.There were boos and catcalls. “Hey, D.C., you stink” … “Way to move the rock, Chucky!”A promising first half … Click HERE if you’re having trouble viewing the gallery on your mobile device.WATCH: Raiders quarterback Derek Carr on their loss to the Rams.
Within Bronze Age dates, a cataclysmic landslide enlarged Zion Canyon, forming a large lake.Geological change can happen quickly. Picture enough material to cover New York’s Central Park with 275 feet of debris; that’s how much material fell from the walls of Zion Canyon about 4,500 years ago, according to estimates announced by PhysOrg. The Sentinel Slide began when a crack in the Navajo sandstone gave way. The BBC News shows maps of the landslide’s progress over the next few moments.“It’s a spectacular volume of material. You get, essentially, one of Zion’s most massive cliffs collapsing, running across the canyon in 20 seconds with peak velocities of 90 metres per second (200mph),” said Dr [Jeff] Moore [University of Utah].Within 60-90 seconds, it was all over. The dust probably took a long time to settle. Flowing south, the Virgin River backed up behind the landslide, forming a lake that lasted for about 700 years before overtopping the debris and carving a channel out. During the lake period, sediments settled on the bottom, flattening the canyon floor and making it easy for today’s visitors to drive into the canyon. The remains of the Sentinel Slide begin south of Zion Lodge and continue downriver for two miles. Moore estimates its volume at 286 million cubic meters of debris.Lake sediments formed the flat floor of Zion Canyon. By David Coppedge, 2014This is probably one of many landslides that created Zion Canyon, Moore believes. A smaller one in the northern regions of the park happened about 2,600 years ago. Moore dated the slide by measuring cosmic ray damage in the newly-exposed rocks. New slides could occur at any time, with catastrophic consequences for today’s visitors. Such an event is unlikely, however. If it did, there would be no warning. There is no evidence of an earthquake or other trigger for the Sentinel Slide.This event is another example of a large, rapid geological change within historic times. Consider also the Gros Ventre slide near Yellowstone, the explosions of Santorini and Krakatoa, and the near-instant changes around Mt. St. Helens in 1980. We have eyewitness testimony for cases like this. From others, we can infer what must have taken place, such as at the Heart Mountain detachment east of Yellowstone, the Chile dam breach (2/18/16), the Channeled Scablands, and now Zion.Creationists believe changes before, during and after the Flood differed only in scale. There’s no need for millions of years.Project: At the rate of known catastrophes over the last 10,000 years or so, including all sources from tsunamis, volcanoes, landslides, megafloods and other rapid events, could any point on a continent expect to remain unmodified for millions of years?

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Nutrient Management Plan Writers are still working for the 2018 year in the Western Lake Erie Basin to write free plans for non-CAFO farmers. Our goal is to complete 65,000 acres for NMP’s in 2018. These plans are written free of charge to farmers and require a small amount of your time and effort. As the plan writers, we gather information that is pertinent to your farm such as your crop rotations, tillage practices, current (within three years) soil test results, yield goals, conservation goals, where water is and more. Then we take that information and work it into several computer programs to complete a NMP or CNMP for your farm. These plans may be required for many financial institutions when building new livestock structures. They may also help with your plan to apply for EQIP funding through NRCS and serve as affirmative defense through SWCD. The NMP may help you reduce your fertilizer cost and provide 4R recommendations for nutrient stewardship practices for your farm.All four NMP Writers are available to work with anyone from the WLEB and if you would like to discuss a NMP or CNMP for your farm please contact one of us at our offices:Jessie Schulze – Defiance County – 419-782-4771 – [email protected] Lauber – Fulton County – 419-337-9210 – [email protected] Campbell – Paulding County – 419-399-8225 – [email protected] Sieler – Wood County – 419-354-9050 – [email protected] can also contact any of your county Extension Ag Educators who can forward the information to us.
