Senator Anderson receives ‘Bridge Builder Award’ at luncheon honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. January 12, 2018 KUSI Newsroom KUSI Newsroom, SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — California State Senator Joel Anderson (R-Alpine) received the Chuck Nichols & Pierre Frazier Bridge Builder Award Friday from the USS Midway Museum’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee at the Sixth Annual Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday Luncheon.Committee Chair Gabe Cruz stated, “Senator Anderson has been a tireless advocate on behalf of all San Diegans. He was responsible for renaming a portion of I-15 the ‘Tuskegee Airmen Highway,” in honor of the African-American WWII Army Air Force air group, “And he is widely recognized as a tireless advocate for veterans of all ethnicities,” added Cruz.While accepting the award, Anderson shared with luncheon attendees that working with members of the Diversity & Inclusion Committee to pass Senate Concurrent Resolution (SCR) 90 and meeting former Tuskegee Airman at the highway dedication ceremony was one of the greatest honors of his legislative career.He went on to say, “While I don’t pretend to fully understand the experience of the Tuskegee Airmen, I do believe that what we can learn from them is this: over the course of its history, America has often failed to live up to its promise. But that promise is still worth fighting for – whether it’s in the skies of Europe, or on a bridge in Selma – the idea of America is worth the fight.”According to the committee, the award is given “to a community leader who embodies the spirit of the committee’s mission and who works to improve relationships, understanding, cooperation and inclusion among the various ethnic communities living and working in the San Diego area (or whose work and inclusion efforts significantly impact San Diegans even though that work may occur or have occurred elsewhere).” Posted: January 12, 2018 Categories: Local San Diego News Tags: Senator Joel Anderson FacebookTwitter

Antuan Goodwin/Roadshow It certainly wouldn’t be Monterey Car Week without a flood of new concept cars and supercars. Lamborghini didn’t disappoint and revealed not one but two models on Friday. First up is the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ 63 Roadster. Naturally, it follows the SVJ 63 Coupe revealed previously and it’s also limited to, as the name implies, 63 units globally. The production figure corresponds with the Italian firm’s founding year of 1963. Any 1 percenters looking to add a new supercar to the garage will have the chance to select one of eight design motifs for the SVJ 63 Roadster, though the photos depict the matte gray Grigio Acheso with orange details. The car also sports a set of matte titanium wheels and a special carbon-fiber part that covers roof, engine cover, engine air vents, windshield surround and mirrors. There will be no mistaking this special edition for any other Aventador as it wears a “63” livery inside and out, too. The cockpit of this Aventador SVJ 63 Roadster features gray and orange to match the exterior, though it shares other elements with the seven additional design motifs. Each of the 63 cars will come with tri-tone Alcantara upholstery, carbon-fiber trim and a steering-wheel badge to mark the SVJ 63 Roadster’s significance. Like all other SVJs, a 6.5-liter V12 makes 760 horsepower. Enlarge ImageLamborghini is proud of its racing success so far, so it made a tribute model. Antuan Goodwin/Roadshow If the Aventador SVJ 63 isn’t flashy enough for you, the Huracan EVO GT Celebration should do the trick. It honors the Huracan EVO GT3 race car that’s come off of two banner racing seasons, including two consecutive wins at the 24 Hours of Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring. The company said it will build 36 of these cars — the sum of 24 and 12 to represent the EVO GT3’s dominance on the track. The wild green and orange livery is meant to evoke the GRT Grasser Racing Team livery, which is one of the teams that’s contributed to Lamborghini’s winning streak. I admit, it’s rather polarizing, but the company said there are eight other combinations to choose from with three other colors. No matter which color, the livery style stays the same, as does the racing number 11. Badging and vinyl also mark the race car’s championship wins on the sides and near the engine bay. Finally, the Lamborghini Squadra Shield is an option for the roof with the Italian and US flags framing it. Meanwhile, the interior features the shield, flags and laurel as standard equipment and color-contrast stitching depending on which color scheme an owner chooses. Like other Huracáns, a V10 provides the power. A shame if you’re not local to North America because other global buyers won’t have the chance to own an Huracan EVO GT Celebration. Both special-edition cars will arrive in early 2020. Share your voice Lamborghini
Credit: CC0 Public Domain Study of zircon crystals casts doubt on evidence for early development of magnetic field © 2019 Science X Network Planetary scientists have found strong evidence that suggests the Earth has an inner and an outer core. The inner core is believed to be solid, while the outer core is made up of molten material. Prior evidence has also indicated that the entire core was once liquid, but as the interior cooled, the innermost part began to crystallize. It is at this point that scientists disagree—some suggest the start of solidification began as far back as 2.5 billion years ago. Others believe it was much more recent—perhaps as recent as just 500 million years ago. In this new effort, the researchers have found evidence that supports the latter theory.The work by the researchers involved carefully analyzing plagioclase and clinopyroxene crystals, which have been dated to approximately 565 million years ago. The crystals are important because they contain bits of metal called inclusions. The inclusions are very small and needle-shaped and aligned themselves with the Earth’s magnetic field as they became embedded in the crystal. Since the Earth’s magnetic field is generated by activity in the inner core, the inclusions are a means of determining the state of the core during the time when the crystals formed. The researchers report that their analysis showed that the magnetic field was significantly weaker than it is today, suggesting that solidification of the core must have occurred soon thereafter or the magnetic field would have collapsed altogether. The reason it did not, theory suggests, is because as the inner core solidified, he magnetic field became stronger. Explore further More information: Richard K. Bono et al. Young inner core inferred from Ediacaran ultra-low geomagnetic field intensity, Nature Geoscience (2019). DOI: 10.1038/s41561-018-0288-0 A quartet of researchers from the University of Rochester and the University of California has found evidence of the starting period for the solidification of Earth’s core. In their paper published in the journal Nature Geoscience, Richard Bono, John Tarduno, Francis Nimmo and Rory Cottrell describe their analysis of ancient crystals found in eastern Canada, what they found, and why they believe their results offer clues about the formation of Earth’s inner core. Peter Driscoll, with the Carnegie Institution for Science, has written a News and Views piece on the study in the same journal issue.
