Younger-Dryas

The Dryas is a wildflower that grows in cooler climates. An evergreen that colonizes areas by spreading along the ground, it is found in Alaska, the Canadian Rockies and reaching as far south as Colorado.

The Younger-Dryas is also an era named for glaciation and cooler temperatures, roughly ending 11,000 years ago. The most recent major ice age started around 115,000 years ago and encompasses the extinction of the Neanderthals and the rise of man. This major glaciation was coasting towards warmer temperatures up to a sudden temperature retreat around 13,000 years ago called the Younger-Dryas and lasting around 1,500 years.

Scientists cannot put an exact year on the peak of and ice-age or the transition from a warm period to a cool period. In years, the transition is much slower, and all changes feature starts, stops, retreats and retrenching, much like a stock market chart. But we do know that the period of glaciation was severe for North America and Scotland. Scottish historians tell us that there were five or six peaks of glaciation in northern Scotland over the last 750,000 years.

Northern Europe and northern North America suffered thick glaciers two miles thick during these ice ages. Geologists tell us that Chicago, New York, most of Scotland, Finland, Norway, and the ice was thinner but still substantial in northern France, Germany and Poland. The European ice sheet appears to have receded a thousand years earlier than in Russia and North America.

Heavy rains in the deserts of North America produced lakes, including Lake Bonneville. The Great Salt Lake is a remnant of the climate of the last ice age. Even the Amazon was affected by global cooling, the jungles today were in some places a grassland more like Africa than central South America. Sea levels were also affected severely by the end of the last ice age.

As the Younger-Dryas came to and and, the seas saw a nearly 200 foot rise in sea level during the next 5,000 years. The deepest recessions of sea level in the last major ice age exceeded 400 feet below today’s sea level. For reference, the deepest part of the Chunnel is 250 feet below sea level, which is also the narrowest part of the English Channel. During the Younger-Dryas and during much of the last major glaciation period, the English Channel was probably dry, or a salt marsh, which was crossed by Neanderthal and Early humans. But the climate of southern England would have been cooler, with ice near to the north supporting small populations of early hunters and gatherers.

The extremes of sea levels had interesting effects for the Phillippines. Today’s mass of thousands of islands were one large island. It may have been possible to walk on dry land from Japan to Australia, crossing ridges exposed by the lower sea levels to Taiwan, then to the Phillippines, next to New Guinea and right onto the Australian continent. The sea level changes mean that eons of history for humanity that fished the oceans has been buried under hundreds of feet of salt water. But other differences in the environment were also prevalent.

One feature of the last ice age was air pollution. The same ice age that produced heavy rains and lakes in the deserts of North America expanded deserts elsewhere. Blowing sands and dust were up to 50 times higher during the ice age, which further blocked sun light that could have warmed the Earth.

Metropolitan Golf Club

3000 Fairington Road was the address for Metropolitan Golf Club in Dekalb County Georgia, south if I-20 and just east of Panola road. Metropolitan operated from 1968 to 2000 with Bermuda fairways and Bent grass greens. Metropolitan had a championship yardage of 6,996 yards with a rating of 74.2 and a slope of 138.

The City of Stonecrest is negotiating to buy the 66.25 acre tract, which featured a hole that could be seen prominently from I-20 in 1999 the year before it closed. A hilly par 4, the hole along with the previous hole and the next hole surrounded a triangular lake, still visible, that is the anchor of an apartment complex.

Undeveloped land up for bid by Stonecrest includes less than half of the old golf course. The land is about 80% utilizable, as the Pole Bridge creek meanders through and slightly more the 20% will be retention and flood plain. The useful are should be large, due to the ability of municipalities to bend zoning and to install large recreational areas, such as parks and soccer fields, which can be allowed to flood to handle higher periods of water table.

Metropolitan was alleged to be designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and Rees Jones. Metropolitan included a restaurant and driving range.

With the close proximity of Gatlinburg to the Smoky Mountains National Park’s entrance, this is a popular visitor spot with plenty of lodging and things to do including snow skiing in the winter. Smoky Mountain cabin rental and hiking are popular in The Great Smoky Mountains which are a range of the Blue Ridge Mountains, so named because of the haze. The haze is not smoke but pollen, they are usually covered by a smoky mist and the flora include more than 200 species of trees and the fauna includes wild pigs, usually the smaller charging boar. The trees help create a humid atmosphere and pump out tons of pollen all year round that looks like a smoky mist. Gatlinburg ushers visitors to peaks and valleys in the The Smoky Mountains where The highest peak is Clingman’s Dome (6,643 feet). What is really remarkable is that this range is so complete that the lowest gap in the range is almost 5,000 feet. In 1930, much of the area was made into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and millions of visitors take in the park that forms the boundary between Tennessee and North Carolina. The range also touches Georgia and South Carolina.

Greensboro Antique Mall

Greensboro is the County Seat of Greene County Georgia. North of Interstate 20, Greensboro is on old GA 278, which roughly follows Interstate 20 east of Atlanta.

The Greensboro Antique Mall has a Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/GreensboroAntiqueMall/

The mall is around 15,000 sq ft, it has the feel of an old hardware store, there is a second floor and no escalator. If you have any interest in adding something unique that embodies the Georgia rural country lifestyle into your home decor, this is worth a visit.

The mall has been here at least ten years. They have attracted reviews from every possible review site, and almost every one of more than 200 reviews we saw were five star reviews. If you can visit the mall in a trip to Athens or Oconee, do it.

The mall has several tenants, but they are all jumbled into the building. There are some display cases that are locked that should be carefully scanned for items of interest.

Plate collectors will have a large selection here, vast amounts of china and silverware may even provide pieces to complete sets. Commercial signs, old tools, antique kitchen implements. If you need a stuffed deer head for the man cave, they probably have one. We even saw a blue spotted white china cat, perfect for a southern porch.

Dark Matter

Scientists are searching for Wimps. Weakly interacting massive particles are a particle that we think is sub-atomic, accounts for 85% of matter in the universe, and we just can’t find the stuff.

The most obvious clues of dark matter began coming in as soon as we had telescopes capable of observing remote galaxies. In the 1920’s astronomers were fascinated by the Milky Way and the stars in the night sky, but indications arose that there were more galaxies than just the Milky Way.

With less powerful telescopes, we looked at the night sky and believed everything was a star. We knew that the Milky Way was a dense galaxy of stars, but it was the more powerful telescopes that showed us that some things that we thought were stars were other galaxies.

Lord Kelvin advanced the theory that objects unseen were subjecting gravitational pull within the Milky Way in a talk given in 1884. He speculated that a large percentage of star bodies were dark in the Milky Way. In 1906 Frenchman Henri Poincare advanced the notion of matiere obscure, or dark matter.

In the 1920’s Dutch astronomers Kapleyn and Oort further advanced the theory of Dark Matter and Fritz Zwicky in 1933 was working at the California Institute of Technology and had access to the Mount Wilson Observatory and the Palomar Observatory. He made records of the rotation of galaxies other than the Milky Way and advanced the idea that the rotation of galaxies would cause them to fly apart without Dark Matter.
