Calling all geo-geezers!
AEG
Are you over 70 years old? Do you have an IRA? You must take a minimum required distribution (MRD) from you IRA this year. Have your IRA custodian send a check to the AEG Foundation in the amount of your MRD, and you won't have to pay income tax on the distribution. That way, you help the foundation support our future professionals with scholarships and grants, you get a tax break and you satisfy the requirement of taking your MRD.

A catastrophic landslide-induced oil spill in Ecuador
American Geophysical Union
VideoBriefOne of the largest impacts of landslides occurs when the slide severs an oil or gas pipeline, allowing a release into the environment. Given that pipelines are increasingly being built in landslide-prone terrain, this is a real problem. A clear illustration of this occurred in Ecuador on May 31, when the Trans-Ecuador pipeline ruptured in a landslide.

The Himalayan Landslide Society and the 11th International Symposium on Mitigation of Geo-Disasters in Asia
American Geophysical Union
The Himalayan Arc is the global hotspot for landslide worldwide. The majority of landslides are triggered by monsoon rainfall. There is a desperate paucity of research into landslides in the Himalayas, despite there being some very talented landslide experts in this region, primarily because of the lack of international focus on the problem, and of course the resultant lack of funding. Thus, it is very pleasing to see the formation of the Himalayan Landslide Society.
