Projections of potentially dramatic sea-level rise from ice-sheet melting in Antarctica have been wide-ranging, but a Rutgers-led team has created a model that enables improved projections and could help better address climate change threats.

A major source of sea-level rise could come from melting of large swaths of the vast Antarctic ice sheet. Fossil coral reefs jutting above the ocean’s surface show evidence that sea levels were more than 20 feet higher about 125,000 years ago during the warm Last Interglacial (Eemian) period.

“Evidence of sea-level rise in warm climates long ago can tell us a lot about how sea levels could rise in the future,” said lead author Daniel M. Gilford, a post-doctoral associate in the lab of co-author Robert

Airport Getting $22 Million State-Of-The-Art Fire Station

To support growth at the airport and in San Jose, plans are under way to build a $22 million state-of-the-art fire station at Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport.

Fire Station 20, which has operated at the airport for about 60 years, will be replaced with a new building, updated equipment and technology, and expand to serve downtown and freeways in the downtown corridor.

Mayor Sam Liccardo said that as the city will be densifying its core, the station is critical to keeping thousands of new residents and workers safe.

“We need to continue to invest in this airport, to shine this jewel,” Liccardo said.

City Manager Dave Sykes said the airport is an important center for employment and a critical economic driver.

Erica Ray, a San Jose Fire Department spokesperson, said although Fire Station 20 has been enlarged in the past, it’s at the point where it has

Goldman Sachs: These 3 Stocks Are Poised to Surge by at Least 50%

Is it time for the bears to break out the champagne glasses? Not so fast, says Goldman Sachs. Volatility has ruled the Street for the last few weeks, leading some to conclude that those with a more pessimistic outlook had been vindicated, but the firm believes stocks can still climb higher.According to Goldman Sachs’ head of U.S. equity strategy, David Kostin, the S&P 500 could still hit 3,600 by the end of the year, and 3,800 by mid-2021, on the back of vaccine-related optimism and progress with the economic reopening. This would reflect gains of 10% and 16%, respectively, should the index ultimately reach these targets.“Despite the sharp sell-off in the past week, we remain optimistic about the path of the U.S. equity market in coming months.

Modernizing and Refurbishing IAEA Laboratories for State-of-the-art Nuclear Science in Support to Countries’ Innovations and Research

A new phase of the modernization of the IAEA’s nuclear application laboratories in Seibersdorf, Austria is required in order to better serve the needs of Member States, speakers said at today’s virtual side event on the margins of the 64th IAEA General Conference.

“Many of our Member States lack the resources to address cancer, pandemics and climate change. They are counting on us to help them,” said IAEA Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi during his opening remarks at the event. “That is why I believe it is imperative that we complete the modernization of the IAEA nuclear applications laboratories — your laboratories — as soon as possible.”  

Research on human and zoonotic diseases, cancer treatment and adapting to changing climates through climate smart agriculture are some examples of the work that takes place in the eight IAEA laboratories. Under the Renovation of the Nuclear Applications Laboratory (ReNuAL) Project: Labs Fit
