Two Stalagmites Found in Chinese Cave Are a 'Holy Grail' for Accurate Radiocarbon Dating

Since its inception in the 1950s, radiocarbon dating has proven indispensable to archaeologists and climate scientists, who rely on the technique to accurately date organic compounds. But a good thing just got better, owing to the discovery of two stalagmites in a Chinese cave containing a seamless chronological atmospheric record dating back to the last Ice Age.

An unbroken, high-resolution record of atmospheric carbon-12 and carbon-14 was found in a pair of stalagmites located within Hulu Cave near Nanjing, China, according to new research published today in Science. Because this record extends back to the last glacial period, to around 54,000 years ago, scientists are now equipped with a more accurate standard for use in radiocarbon calibration.

There’s no question that radiocarbon dating has revolutionized archaeology. Armed with this technique, scientists can date organic compounds, such as bone, hair, wood, seeds, and shells. The further back in time we go, however, the less reliable carbon dating becomes, as the technique is reliant upon accurate historical measurements of atmospheric carbon, specifically the ratio of carbon-12 to carbon-14.
As the researchers write in their paper, the new calendrical record represents a “holy grail” for scientists, offering a high-resolution and continuous record of atmospheric C14 that covers the full range of the radiocarbon dating method. For archaeologists, it also means they can now date organic compounds between 14,000 to 54,000 years with greater confidence, especially the older samples.

Wheres Mumbles tonight?

Usually, he has 4-6 posts about demmoroids Commies, traitors, and other un-Americans, by this time. Yet, no posts for Todd tonight?

Its 11:00 pm EDT. Where are our nightly demmotoid, Commie, traitor posts are missing

From our usual poster. Could it be he’s afraid of Todd?

Its 10:15 EDT. Where are all the demoroid posts?

Could it be that the poster is suddenly afraid?

Its 9:15 EDT, 9:15 in Indianapolis (Looked it up. Thought it was 8:15. Its in the middle)

Where’s our little buddy? He ALWAYS posts a lot about those Jew-hating demorroids around this time. I guess that’s when Tom lets him go home. None of those posts tonight?

Come on little buddy, it’s time to play!!!

Killer of Heather Heyer pleads guilty to hate crimes tied to Virginia riot

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (Reuters) - Self-described neo-Nazi James Fields, who was convicted of killing Heather Heyer by ramming his car into a crowd protesting a white supremacist rally in a Virginia college town in 2017, pleaded guilty on Wednesday in his federal hate crimes case.

Fields, 21, pleaded guilty to 28 federal counts of hate crime acts causing bodily injury and involving an attempt to kill, and one count of a hate crime act that resulted in the death of Heyer during a hearing in U.S. District Court in Charlottesville.

Each count carries a maximum sentence of life in prison. Under the plea agreement, U.S. prosecutors said they will not seek the death penalty.

Captain Marvel Wings To $910M+ Global, Becomes #10 Superhero Pic Offshore & WW

UPDATE, writethru: Captain Marvel remained at the overseas helm this weekend, adding $52.1M in her third frame. The Disney/Marvel title has now grossed $588.8M at the international box office for $910.3M worldwide. The scores for Carol Danvers blast her to the No. 10 spot on the all-time superhero charts, both offshore and globally.

After topping Wonder Woman worldwide late last week, among the pics Captain Marvel passed throughout the weekend (unadjusted) are Thor: Ragnarok ($854M), Venom ($855M), Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 ($864M), Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice ($874M), Spider-Man: Homecoming ($880M) and Spider-Man 3 ($891M).

It’s gonna be a complete disaster, just like Black Panther!

For all those celebrating Barrs summary of the Mueller Report

In all honesty ask yourself this. If Eric Holder had summarised a Report on possible wrongdoings by Obama, would you feel the same way? No snark. No invectives. Just really? And before you answer, remember this is not the end of the journey. It’s simply an early milestone.

Again, I have no dog in the hunt.

Well, well, well, well.....does anyone know the difference between.....

damaging information and accusations of criminality?
