Professional Legislative Support Fund (PLSF)
AEG
Per Ken Neal, AEG Licensure Committee co-chair: "A question was recently raised concerning AEG's Professional Legislative Support Fund (PLSF). Since AEG's Board of Directors consists of many new members that were not part of AEG's leadership team when the fund was established, we are again writing to familiarize AEG's membership with the purpose for this fund and information on how to apply for assistance if needed."

Geologists unlock mysteries of the planet's inner core
SpaceDaily
Seismic waves are helping scientists to plumb the world's deepest mystery — the planet's inner core. Thanks to a novel application of earthquake-reading technology, a research team at the University of Illinois and colleagues at Nanjing University in China have found that the Earth's inner core has an inner core of its own, which has surprising properties that could reveal information about our planet.

Volcanic lightning generated in a bottle
EARTH Magazine
In A.D. 79, during the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius, Pliny the Younger wrote of a "blaze of lightning" illuminating the ash plume, marking the first recorded observation of volcanic lightning. Nearly 2,000 years later, scientists still know very little about how lightning is generated by volcanic eruptions, in large part because of the danger and difficulty in monitoring the phenomenon in the field. But a new apparatus for generating volcanic lightning in the lab may shed light on the subject.
