Toronto - CBC: Ontario PC Leadership candidate Caroline Mulroney
says she brings 'different kind of experience' to Queen's Park

Caroline Mulroney says she may be a political rookie, but she will bring "a different kind of experience to Queen's Park" if she's elected not only as an MPP but as leader of Ontario's Progressive Conservatives. Mulroney is up against two retired veteran politicians -- former MPP Christine Elliott and former Toronto city councillor Doug Ford -- for the party's top post, which is vacant following the resignation of Patrick Brown. "I've been working for 20 years in law and business, I started a charity, and I've been doing that while raising kids," Mulroney, a mother of four, told CBC News on Monday morning. She has the support of fellow PC candidates and current caucus members, she said, and has been out knocking on doors as part of her campaign for the York-Simcoe seat. She is also expected to have an experienced war room: former federal Progressive Conservative cabinet minister Lisa Raitt confirmed to CBC News that she will serve as one of Mulroney's leadership campaign co-chairs. ~ CBC

BBC: Sprawling Maya network discovered under Guatemala jungle

The Maya city of Tikal was found to be just a fraction of an immense hidden metropolis. Researchers have found more than 60,000 hidden Maya ruins in Guatemala in a major archaeological breakthrough. Laser technology was used to survey digitally beneath the forest canopy, revealing houses, palaces, elevated highways, and defensive fortifications. The landscape, near already-known Maya cities, is thought to have been home to millions more people than other research had previously suggested.

IJC: Lake Ontario level up again; outflow cutback in early 2017 led to flooding
that cost U.S. and Canadian individuals, businesses and govts $$ millions in damages

Lake Ontario outflow volumes are up in 2018, but so is the lake level, even higher than 2017 when it flooded for 4 months causing massive damage. The reduced outflow volumes in 2017, due to a controversial International Joint Commission policy enacted after predictions of flooding, indeed led to mass flooding that continued from May until August, with Lake Ontario levels remaining higher than usual into October. The previous policy, from the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway in 1959, had seen mild flooding in only 1993, and only briefly, in June of that year. Some of the information on the graphs above is misleading, because until the Seaway opened in 1959 there was only limited control over the lake level. By letting out more water in January to April period, the lake can more easily handle high run-off volumes and increased precipitation, as it did prior to 2017. The information on the lower graph shows the potential for flooding again if higher outflows aren't instituted due to higher than usual January lake level.

Principia Scientific: Solar cycle to cause a ‘Mini Ice Age’ as early as 2020: Study

A bombshell study, led by professor Valentina Zharkova of Northumbria University, suggests that in the next few years Earth will enter into a cooling phase that will set off a series of events leading to a mini ice age. Researchers came to the somewhat alarming conclusions by creating a mathematical model of the sun’s magnetic fields. According to the models, there will be a “huge reduction” in solar activity for 33 years between 2020 and 2053. This will cause global temperatures to decrease—drastically. The temperatures will plummet to levels not seen since the 17th century. As IFL Science reports, the future predicted activity of the Sun has been likened to the Maunder Minimum. This was a period when the Sun entered an especially inactive period, producing fewer sunspots than usual. This minimum happened at the same time that conditions in Northern America and Europe went unusually icy and cold, a period of time known as the “little ice age.”

CTV News: Newfoundland snowmobilers rescue moose buried in deep snow

"We knew the moose was stuck really good," Jonathan Anstey said in an interview on Wednesday. "He tried several times to get himself out of the hole, but he wasn't getting anywhere." Anstey said the moose appeared to have gotten stuck in a bog hole and was trying to climb out, but its hind legs seemed to be firmly planted in the snow. He said some members of his group grabbed shovels and walked around to the rear of the moose, where they figured they would be safe from the animal's thrashing. After a few minutes of digging, Anstey said they had carved out a path behind the moose, and one of the snowmobilers rode up to the animal to coax it to turn around. "The moose actually realized it had footing on solid ground and managed to pull himself out of the hole."
