Island Time

Living on Island Time

The first couple of days were spent waiting on this and on that and it truly felt like a year had gone by.  The first day was spent waking up early and driving to KCI airport where after about an hour or so of waiting we finally got on the plane that took us to Florida.  I sat in the very back of the plane with Zach and McCabe and I learned a valuable lesson from…

A New Experience

I woke up early and went to meet everyone at the library. Once we got our passports and tickets we all headed to the airport. We took a flight to Ft. Lauderdale.  Once there we all we out to eat and I had a Mahi-Mahi sandwich and tried some oyster, steamed clam, and calamari.  I think out of those 3 I will only have the calamari again.  Then we got our rooms and got the information for the plane trip to Andros.  We had the rest of the night to ourselves and I went swimming and hung out in…

Loving the Bahamas!

I have known that I wanted to this program for a long time now. My brother did it back in 2003. I saw how much fun he was having learning the fish and then going out on the sail boats and seeing them in person. I saw what he brought back from the trip and it all sounded like so much fun i just had to try and go. So here I am! I took the class and went on the trip.

Day 1



I couldn't sleep, I had to be up at 4:30 in the morning so we could…

Plane ride to Andros

The Bahamian Experience

Everything about the Bahamas was pretty much perfect. The weather, the people, the lifestyle, the water, the air, the night sky, and the people. Did I say people twice? Heck yes I did because the people truly were some of the coolest people ever.

They were some of the most down to earth and friendly people I have ever met. There was even a statue of a pair of hands shaking to really reinforce the fact that they were very friendly people.

The first day that we spent on…

Doin' It D.C. Style!

Colt's recent update on his life has inspired me to also update everyone on my shenanigans. I am not living in the beautiful wilderness of Alaska, but I am living in the concrete jungle of Washington D.C.

 

So, since I last checked in, I finished my dissertation research at the University of Rhode Island and am in the process of publishing my results. If all goes as planned, I will be Dr. Nicole Rohr in May with a Ph.D. in Biology! Here is my first chapter in case you are…

Off of Andros...





Day one 

                  I woke up an hour earlier than I had intended to, just as I always do on days like this. My head scrambled together a thousand images of a burning sun over a dancing blue sea, and my stomach ached for the adventure. I showered and dressed for the chilly Midwestern April, wishing I were already in the warm tropics of Andros. I tossed my bag in the car, kissed my family goodbye, and my mom and I headed off to meet the group. There’s…

The Wonder of The Ocean





4/3/11

We're Here, We're Finally here in the Bahamas, the cool salty air makes great sleeping conditions, which is good because I was exhausted after being stuck in the Ft. Lauderdale Airport for what felt like forever yesterday. Though my sandals appear to have been snatched away in the night by some local, oh well, not much I could do now if I wanted to. We woke up bright and early to get a head start on the other boat, Sirena.…

The wonderful trip

April 2nd 2011

On the flight into Andros we got to see the deep ocean blue turn to a clear bluish and greenish mix. When we saw this change I noticed that there almost no boats in sight. Karen slept most of the flight and actually ended up drooling on my hoodie….. The rest of the flight was just a little bit cold with out my hoodie.  After we landed and got into fresh…

Today is the day!

4/1/11

Today is the day! I wake up early and more than ready to head to Florida. We’re meeting in the parking lot behind the East Hills Library and I’m so excited I can’t even contain myself. I eat breakfast and go through my things again to make sure I have everything. With my checklist complete my mother and I head to the lot to meet up with everyone else. Upon our arrival I overhear Miles talking about his hat and I then realize I didn’t pack one; so my mom and I rush home to get one.… Continue

Aye, Mon! (a.k.a. My Bahamian Experience/Greatest Week of 2013)

Where do I even begin? Or better rephrased, how do I start telling the tale of the most intriguing adventure I've ever gone on in my short 17 years of life? The most obvious answer would be to start with Day 1, which is only logical, but once you've started reading my account, I think you'll understand why I didn't know where to begin. Day 1- Friday, March 21st, Saint Joseph to Ft.

Under the Sun-2013

Saturday, March 23rd, 2013Yesterday we arrived at Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to begin our adventure miles from home. Around 12:30 PM, 7 of us loaded a small plane with a pilot named Eddie (I got to be co-pilot!) and we set flight over the ocean. The ocean is simply breathtaking and magnificent. Looking the 5,000 feet down to the shades of blue wasn't full of much to look at but I couldn't take my eyes off of it. I was looking for something to strike my eye, to jump out of the water...SOMETHING!…See More

Boaty McBoatface returns home from abyss

Researchers have captured unprecedented data about some of the coldest abyssal ocean waters on earth - known as Antarctic Bottom Water (AABW) - during first voyage of the yellow robotic submersible known as Boaty McBoatface, which arrived back in the UK last week. The team captured data on temperature, speed of water flow and underwater turbulence rates of the Orkney Passage, a region of the Southern Ocean which is around 4,000m deep and roughly 500 miles from the Antarctic Peninsula.

Reptile skin grown in lab for first time, helps study endangered turtle disease

Scientists recently reconstructed the skin of endangered green turtles, marking the first time that skin of a non-mammal was successfully engineered in a laboratory, according to a study. In turn, the scientists were able to grow a tumor-associated virus to better understand certain tumor diseases.

New innovation feeds the world with more fish protein

As the world faces a projected population increase from today’s 7.5 billion people to 9 billion people by 2050, the demand for sustainable food sources is on the rise. The answer to this looming dilemma may well reside within the booming field of aquaculture. While wild fisheries have been on the decline for the last 20 years, aquaculture, or fish farming, is the fastest growing food-producing sector in the world, and will play an increasingly vital role in our planet’s food resources in the years to come.

Could humans ever regenerate a heart? A new study suggests the answer is 'yes'

A new study's findings point to potential for tweaking communication between human genes and advancing our ability to treat heart conditions and stimulate regenerative healing.

Microbe mystery solved: What happened to the Deepwater Horizon oil plume?

The Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 is one of the most studied spills in history, yet scientists haven't agreed on the role of microbes in eating up the oil. Now a research team has identified all of the principal oil-degrading bacteria as well as their mechanisms for chewing up the many different components that make up the released crude oil.
