  • What is 'Tornado Alley'? - Technology & Science - CBC News
    these areas Energy from climate change has increased the temperature of the oceans by about one degree Fahrenheit over the last 30 to 40 years and as a result there s about a four to five per cent increase in the amount of water vapour over the oceans says Kevin Trenberth a senior scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder Colo Tornadoes like the one in Oklahoma effectively begin with moisture coming from the Gulf of Mexico and any additional vapour will likely affect their severity says Trenberth The estimate is that the added vapour produces a five to 10 per cent effect in terms of precipitation and maybe as much as that in terms of the intensity of storms It s a relatively small effect but in the situation where you ve already got strong storms from natural weather variability adding a little bit more means you can break records he says Environment Canada however is still investigating the correlation between climate change and severe weather I still haven t seen any definitive studies on that says Coulson One of the keys for us is getting a better database of historical events how many tornadoes were we getting in the early part of the 20th century how many are we getting now Share Tools Report Typo Send Feedback Stay Connected with CBC News Mobile Facebook Podcasts Twitter Alerts Newsletter Big Box Advertisement Top News Headlines Canadian Revenue Agency mails private records to wrong person The federal privacy commissioner is investigating the Canada Revenue Agency after it mailed confidential financial records on other taxpayers to a B C woman and failed to get them back when she tried to return the package more Can anyone take on top 3 telecom companies Some telecom analysts question whether it s at all possible for a new national competitor to go head to head against the incumbent carriers and carve out their own slice of the Canadian telecom pie more China poultry plant fire kills at least 119 A massive fire breaks out at a poultry plant in northeastern China trapping workers inside a cluttered slaughterhouse and killing at least 119 people more Don Pittis Goodbye kudos Carney hello Poloz party pooper An economy threatening to improve can be bad for a central banker s popularity writes Don Pittis Mark Carney departs the Bank of Canada as a shining hero who lowered interest rates but new governor Stephen Poloz has a far more difficult task more Violence flares on 4th day of Turkish protests Violence has flared in Istanbul between a group of demonstrators and police on the fourth day of protests set off by a brutal police crackdown of a peaceful environmental protest more Must Watch Latest Technology Science News Headlines Can anyone take on top 3 telecom companies Some telecom analysts question whether it s at all possible for a new national competitor to go head to head against the incumbent carriers and carve out their own slice

  • Chris Hadfield's translator: Q&A with Canadian astronaut Jeremy Hansen - Technology & Science - CBC News
    the trends we have probably the most important thing that will ever be contributed from the space program When you look at what Chris Hadfield did during his time on the space station what do you take from that personally Hansen I see an astronaut who gave selflessly of himself while he was on the space station who put not just the mission which was first and foremost of course to make sure the mission was accomplished but he also put the education and the inspiration of people very high on his priority list and I think that was a really great example for all us It s not that you could necessarily ever expect to emulate what happened with Chris Hadfield but it s certainly very motivating to me to see the kind of effect that you can have on humanity and so I will definitely take that with me Read about how Chris Hadfield turned earthlings on to space What was the most inspiring element of what you saw Chris Hadfield s photos from space captured places around the world and in Canada including a gyre frozen into the ice off Newfoundland and Labrador on March 22 Chris Hadfield Canadian Space Agency Reuters Hansen I think the most inspiring thing for me was really the message that I heard echo through Chris Hadfield and him seeminginly become more passionate about throughout his expedition and that was his perspective of our planet and his respect for this planet that we live on That s pretty profound We just take it for granted I know I take it for granted I ll leave this interview and I ll walk outside and I ll forget that I m standing on a rock in the middle of space and I ll go back to my everyday life and Chris has given us reason to ponder these things and to not take it for granted Do you have any other comments about what s in store for him or for you Hansen There s one other point that I would like to make especially for Canadians Right now we have a very small modest space program very few astronuats fly in space But for the younger generations who have been motivated by this it s very clear to me that humanity is going to be spending more and more time in space We are learning to exist in space not just visit it but exist in space and I see us developing these technologies where we re going to be utilizing resources in space and I think that really changes everything For Canadian youth they re going to have the opportunity more and more to work in the space industry That should be motivating for people that are attracted to that Read about how soon another Canadian might go into space Share Tools Report Typo Send Feedback Stay Connected with CBC News Mobile Facebook Podcasts Twitter Alerts Newsletter Big Box Advertisement Top News

  • Young and old can learn a lot from each other - Quirks and Quarks
    Meadows School Project currently taking place in Williams Lake B C In this full intergenerational immersion project a middle school class is moved into a senior care facility for a month at a time twice during the school year While continuing their regular school lessons each day the children also help set tables and do activities with the seniors such as playing games reading stories or going for walks Along the way the kids may learn that old Mrs Jones was a doctor working in Africa while Mr Smith was an aeronautical engineer who designed jet aircraft during the War And Mrs Davie may find a new friend in young Alice who actually listens to her tales of years gone by Interacting with a senior especially one who is not a relative can be a powerful educational experience Last year during the 50th Anniversary celebration of Canada s first satellite Alouette 1 I had the privilege of meeting the original pioneers who actually designed and built it Sure I had read that Canada was the third country in space I had seen pictures of what the satellite looked like and knew about its work in the upper ionosphere But to shake the hand of someone who had fabricated the real thing and hear amazing personal stories of trying to do something that had never been accomplished before is something you can t learn in books I heard how there were no instruction manuals how the Americans didn t think the Canadians could pull it off the excitement and tension during the launch Suddenly a piece of Canada s history came alive for me through these senior scientists This Saturday some cities such as Calgary are hosting public events that bring seniors and young people together But the day can also be celebrated with a phone call to an aging friend or by a grandma taking the kids on a walk in the park where she can identify all the flowers along the way or talk about how that park used to be an entire forest when she was young It s as simple as that Oh and why make it just one day Comments Comments Archived Comments CBC News Blogs Quirks and Quarks About the Authors Quirks Categories News Promo 103 Archives Select a Month May 2013 5 April 2013 4 March 2013 5 February 2013 4 January 2013 4 December 2012 3 November 2012 5 October 2012 4 September 2012 4 August 2012 2 June 2012 3 May 2012 4 April 2012 4 March 2012 6 February 2012 4 January 2012 4 December 2011 4 November 2011 4 October 2011 4 September 2011 5 August 2011 1 June 2011 4 May 2011 4 April 2011 6 March 2011 4 February 2011 4 January 2011 4 December 2010 3 November 2010 4 October 2010 5 September 2010 4 June 2010 4 May 2010 4 April 2010 4 March 2010 4 February 2010 4 January 2010 4 December 2009 4 November
