    House Financial Services Chair Maxine WatersMaxine Moore WatersThe Hill's Morning Report - Presented by Altria - Jan. 6 panel flexes its muscle Best shot at narrowing racial homeownership gap at risk, progressives say Hillicon Valley — Presented by LookingGlass — Congress looks to strengthen government's aging cyber infrastructure MORE (D-Calif.) said she hopes lawmakers won't make deep cuts to the affordable housing aid she’s pushing to be included in her party’s sweeping social benefits and climate spending plan, as Democrats look to trim the massive package to meet demands from moderates. “We are not simply going to go along to get along. We're probably going to have to give an alternative to whatever is being suggested, and I certainly hope that there is no attempt by which to do deep cuts in housing,” Waters said at a press conference on Wednesday afternoon. The congresswoman, a fierce housing advocate, has pushed hard for affordable housing aid to remain in the Democrats’ spending plan, which the party aims to move through Congress using a procedure called reconciliation that will let them pass the bill...
    Dog The Bounty Hunter has shared a video of himself continuing to search for Brian Laundrie by wading through waist-deep swamp water in Florida. In his most recent post on Instagram, shared on Sunday morning, Duane 'Dog' Chapman, shared a clip of him and his team wading through a swamp, as followers praised his commitment to finding Laundrie.   In the video, Chapman can be seen holding onto a boat before venturing into the swamp with waist-deep waters along with four other men.
    CHICAGO (CBS Chicago/CBS News) — Charlie Watts, the drummer whose beat kept The Rolling Stones alive for six decades, has died. Publicist Bernard Doherty said Tuesday that Watts “passed away peacefully in a London hospital earlier today surrounded by his family.” Watts was 80.

    Oxygen levels have dropped in hundreds of lakes in the United States and Europe over the last four decades, a new study found.   And the authors said declining oxygen could lead to increased fish kills, algal blooms and methane emissions.   Researchers examined the temperature and dissolved oxygen — the amount of oxygen in the water — in nearly 400 lakes and found that declines were widespread. Their study, published Wednesday in the journal Nature, found dissolved oxygen fell 5.5 % in surface waters of these lakes and 18.6% in deep waters.   The authors said their findings suggest that warming temperatures and decreased water clarity from human activity are causing the oxygen decline.   "Oxygen is one of the best indicators of ecosystem health, and changes in this study reflect a pronounced human footprint," said co-author Craig E. Williamson, a biology professor at Miami University in Ohio.     That footprint includes warming caused by climate change and decreased water clarity caused in part by runoff from sewage, fertilizer, cars and power plants.   Dissolved oxygen losses in...
    Freshwater lakes are losing oxygen rapidly due to global warming – even faster than the world's oceans, a new study warns. Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York surveyed oxygen levels of freshwater lakes in the temperate zone, which spans 23 to 66 degrees north and south latitude.  Oxygen levels of lakes in this zone have declined 5.5 per cent at the surface and 18.6 per cent in deep waters since 1980, they found.  Freshwater lakes are bodies of still, unsalted water surrounded by land, and are vital water sources for humans and microorganisms.  A decline in freshwater oxygen therefore threatens biodiversity and drinking water quality for humans.  Although lakes make up only about three per cent of Earth's land surface, they also contain a disproportionate concentration of the planet's biodiversity.  'The implications of declining oxygen in freshwaters are enormous,' said study author Kevin Rose, a professor at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.  'All complex life depends on oxygen – it's the support system for aquatic food webs. And when you start losing oxygen, you have the potential to lose species. 'Lakes are losing oxygen...
    A odd-looking sea creature that typically lives in deep ocean waters and rarely seen off Southern California was found washed up at Crystal Cove State Beach. The sharp-toothed, black fish with a large antenna-like stalk that comes out of its head and dangles in front of it was spotted on Friday, May 7, in the park’s Marine Protected Area. It appeared to officials to be a kind of anglerfish.

    (CNN)As the globe continues to warm at an astonishing rate due to climate change, winter is shrinking at depths we've never known before, including the Great Lakes.A study conducted by scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL) used a 30-year data set to investigate how climate change is impacting the deepest parts of Lake Michigan, the world's fourth-largest freshwater lake. "We found that this long-term data set not only confirms that Lake Michigan's deep waters are warming, but also shows that winter is vanishing from them," said Eric Anderson, the study's lead author. This could have a profound impact on everything from the region's weather to its food supply. Scientists used a long string of high-tech thermometers, which float vertically in the water and record temperatures at different depths in the lake. This instrument has been recording water temperatures every hour, almost continuously, for the past three decades. Read MoreThis allowed scientists to examine the lake's year-round temperature changes throughout the entire water column, rather than just lake surface temperatures in the summer.Mike...
    Anti-submarine warfare is already a great French specialty. It will be even more so in 2025, when France should have complete control over the submarine detection detection chain with the commissioning of new “Made in France” acoustic buoys. Visiting Thursday within the technological SME Telerad, based in Anglet (Pyrénées-Atlantiques), the Minister of the Armed Forces Florence Parly will launch this new industrial sector in the field of defense under the leadership of Thales Underwater Systems, which wishes to implement … Follow La Tribune Let’s share economic information, receive our newsletters
    A close encounter with a school of hammerhead sharks was captured on a family boat day.     Wayne Smith and his family were boating off the coast of Hervey Bay, southeast Queensland, when they spotted the group of sharks over the weekend.  He filmed the amazing interaction as five sharks splashed around and even swam up to their boat in waters that were only half a metre deep, 7NEWS reported.     Wayne Smith was boating off the coast of southeast Queensland on the weekend and recorded the moment a school of hammerhead sharks approached his family's boat (pictured above)  The sharks could be observed in great detail in the clear waters of the Great Sandy Strait, in between the Queensland mainland and Fraser Island.  Mr Smith's footage first captured the school of sharks swimming together in the distance.   'Wow, there's maybe more than four. Wow, look at the size of them,' he could be heard saying.  RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next From parties to pavements: Depressing video shows Schoolies... Property boom on the Gold...
    News Spectacular sighting off the coast of australia of five specimens of magnapnids Giant squid recorded in deep waters off Australia for the first time Five giant squid of the abyssal areas of the ocean have been recorded for the first time in deep waters off Australia. ScienceAlert informs the study published in the scientific journal PLOS ONE Over the Alien-looking magnapanids with slender tentacles caught in the Australian Grand Baha. The recordings of the five giant squid, one of which measures 1.8 meters with “arms 11 times the length of its body”, were made in 2015 (at 2,110 and 2,178 meters), in 2015 and in 2017 (3,002 meters, 3,056 meters and 3,060 meters). “Giant squid sightings are very rare. These are the first records in Australian waters, adding to only a dozen confirmed sightings worldwide,” reported the doctor. Deborah Osterhage in a statement from the CSIRO (Commonwealth Industrial and Scientific Research Organization). “The differences in their appearance meant that we were able to confirm that they were five separate individuals, rather than...
    Australia is home to all sorts of weird and wonderful creatures – and scientists have discovered another strange inhabitant.Key points: Five pigeon squid were found in the Great Australian Bait off the coast of western South Australia Squid can live up to 4,500 meters above sea level and have long, sticky, sparse filaments. Prior to these new views, only a dozen pigfish squid had been reported worldwide An elongated squid with long, sparse-like fibers lurking in the deep sea is first found in Australian waters. Researchers at CSIRO and Museums filmed five pigeon squid in the Victoria Great Australian Bite, 3,000 meters below sea level. Before these views, Published in PLOS One Magazine Today, mysterious creatures have only been reported a dozen times worldwide – never in Australian waters. At the time CSIRO marine ecologist and study lead author Deborah Osterhage, R.V. He recalled scrolling through the footage recorded by cameras dragged behind the Investigator, and saw his first Pickfin squid. “When I was looking at pictures and videos, all of a sudden I saw this squid and I...
    A delicate, soft coral garden has been found near Greenland at a depth of 1,600 feet underwater — where the pressures is 50 times greater than at the surface. Experts from the UK and Greenland made the discovery — the first of its kind to have been seen in the region — using an innovative and low-cost deep-sea video camera. The fragile habitat is immediately adjacent to economically important deep-sea trawl fisheries, the researchers reported. Accordingly, they are hoping that the United Nations will recognise a 188 square mile area around the site as a 'Vulnerable Marine Ecosystem' to ensure it is protected. Scroll down for video  A delicate, soft coral garden (pictured) has been found near Greenland at a depth of 1,600 feet underwater — where the pressures is 50 times greater than at the surface 'Coral gardens are characterised by collections of one or more species , that sit on a wide range of hard and soft bottom habitats, from rock to sand, and support a diversity of fauna,' said Chris Yesson of the Zoological Society of London.
