A look back at the Hollinger Mine
Timmins Press
If you live in Timmins (or you've just driven through), you've passed by this complex, for lack of a better word, many, many times. It is a local landmark, a symbol of the Porcupine then and now. It is a monument to the thousands of miners and their families who have called this community home; indirectly, it has helped countless others set up businesses and make a home in this community.

Why is Denver a mile high?
Geological Society of America
No one really knows how the High Plains got so high. About 70 million years ago, eastern Colorado, southeastern Wyoming, western Kansas, and western Nebraska were near sea level. Since then, the region rose about two kilometers, leading to some head scratching at geology conferences. Now researchers at the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences and the Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder have proposed a new way to explain the uplift.

Melting Antarctic glacier could trigger 10-foot sea level rise around the world
Metro
A 40-mile long glacier in Antarctica is now melting rapidly due to climate change — and could trigger a 10-foot rise in sea levels around the world. A valley underneath East Antarctica's Totten Glacier is delivering warm water to the base of the ice, speeding up melting. The vast glacier is 40 miles long and 18 miles wide, and contains enough water to raise sea levels around the world by 10 feet. Until recently, the glacier was thought to be surrounded by cold waters and therefore very stable and unlikely to change.
