“Thanks, folks, for all those details re: spam.
Very much appreciated!”

Given the remarks made about SPAM on this list, people
here might be interested in knowing that SPAM is regarded
as “soul food” in Hawaii. They even have “Spam sushi.”

Go look at 1. “Hawaiian soul food” at;

2. Hawaii Celebrates Waikiki SPAM JAM(R) Festival

Are these Alleged "Impact Events" Either for Real or of Any Significance?

Are these Alleged "Impact Events" Either for Real or of Any Significance?

Paul bristolia at yahoo.com
Thu Jul 2 00:00:33 EDT 2009

Dear Friends,

Does anybody have any information on the below alleged "impact events"?

Is there any documentation for them having ever happened?

1. Cando event

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cando_event

2. Vitim event

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitim_event

3. Eastern Mediterranean event

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_Mediterranean_Event

If any of the above "events" are for real, were any of any significance?

Yours,

Paul H.

New ASTER Global Satellite Digital Elevation Model Data Now Available Online

Articles that describe this new global Digital Elevation Model (DEM) dataset are:

1. Most Complete Earth Map Published, BBC News, June 30, 2009

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/8126197.stm

2. Most Complete Topographic Map of Earth, GM International

http://www.gim-international.com/news/id3889-Most_Complete_Topographic_Map_of_Earth.html

"NASA and Japan released a new digital topographic map of Earth Monday
that covers more of our planet than ever before. The map was produced with
detailed measurements from NASA's Terra spacecraft. The new global digital
elevation model of Earth was created from nearly 1.3 million individual
stereo-pair images collected by the Japanese Advanced Spaceborne Thermal
Emission and Reflection Radiometer, or ASTER, instrument aboard Terra.
NASA and Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI),
developed the data set. It is available online to users everywhere at no cost."
