The 3.4 km wide lake is approximately 45 km northwest of the Tigris–Euphrates confluence. Because of its shape, location, and other details, it has been conjectured to represent an impact crater.Contents 1 Evidence as an impact crater 2 Climate change and impact effects 3 See also 4 ReferencesEvidence as an impact crater Using satellite imagery, Sharad Master suggests the 3.4 km diameter dry lake may be an impact crater based on its nearly circular, slightly polygonal rim shape, and contrasting shape to other lakes in the region. As to its origin, he rules out karst topography, salt doming, tectonic deformation, and igneous intrusion as well as possible bombing or man-made origins of the structure. Master estimates the age of the crater to be less than 5000 years, or earlier than 3000 BCE, due to the deposition of sediments of the Tigris-Euphrates plain as a result of the 130–150 km seaward progradation of the Persian Gulf during that time period. A lack of writings describing this event by well-known authors like Herodotus (484–425 BC) and Nearchus (360–300 BC) or later historians implies the impact may have occurred earlier, or between 3000 and 5000 years BP. During this time period, the Al Amarah region was under the Persian Gulf at a depth of approximately 10 m. Impact-induced tsunamis would have devastated coastal Sumerian cities. This may provide an alternate origin of the 2.6 m sediment layer discovered during an excavation of the Sumerian city of Ur by Leonard Woolley in 1922-1934. Descriptive passages in The Epic of Gilgamesh (circa 1600–1800 BCE) may describe such an impact and tsunami, suggesting a link to the Sumerian Deluge: ..and the seven judges of Hell, the Annunaki, raised their torches, lighting the land with their livid flame. A stupor of despair went up to heaven when the god of the storm turned daylight into darkness, when he smashed the land like a cup. One whole da. thanks wikipedia.

The Scenic West Athletic Conference (also known as the Scenic West Conference) is a sports association for junior colleges located in Idaho, Utah, Colorado, and Nevada. The conference is a member of the NJCAA and sponsors 9 sports, 4 for men and 5 for women. It is the sole conference in the NJCAA’s Region 18.Contents 1 History 2 Member schools2.1 Former members2.1.1 Scenic West 2.1.2 schools leaving before Region 18 became the SWAC 2.2 Region 18 Divisions 3 Sponsored sports (men) 4 Sponsored sports (women) 5 References 6 External linksHistory The origins of the Scenic West started in 1986, as the nine schools in the region resumed round-robin competition after discontinuing it in 1985. Salt Lake Community College began play in 1987, and the conference adopted its current name in 1990. Region 18 itself was formed in 1968, as Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington were split off from Arizona, California, Nevada, and Utah, which remained in the NJCAA’s Region 1. When almost all of the Oregon and Washington schools left the NJCAA to form the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges in 1983, the next year Nevada, Utah, and far western Colorado were added to Region 18 to keep the region feasible. This year broguht the initial round-robin schedule, but the next year the addition of Flathead Community College of Montana caused that schedule to be dropped. This was short-lived, as Flathead’s team disbanded during the season, and the remaining regional schools joined to form the current Scenic West.

Jamaican orioleAt Green Castle Estate, JamaicaConservation statusLeast Concern (IUCN 3.1)Scientific classification Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Aves Order: Passeriformes Family: Icteridae Genus: Icterus Species: I. leucopteryx Binomial name Icterus leucopteryx (Wagler, 1827)Juvenile on San Andrés, Archipelago of San Andrés, Colombia The Jamaican oriole (Icterus leucopteryx) is found chiefly on the island of Jamaica. On the island of San Andrès extant subspecies of the bird can be found. The species is considered extinct on the island of Grand Cayman. Subspecies are restricted geographically to their island homes. The species is closely related to the orioles of the “Northern Oriole”  such as the Baltimore oriole (Icterus galbula) rather than other Caribbean members of the genus.References ^ BirdLife International (2012). “Icterus leucopteryx”.

John Aglionby (died ca. 1610) was an eminent divine, of a family whose name was De Aguilon, corrupted into Aglionby. The son of Edward Aglionby and Elizabeth Musgrave, of Crookdayke, he was admitted as a student to Queen’s College, Oxford in 1583. He went into orders and became an eloquent preacher. He travelled abroad, where he formed an acquaintance with cardinal Bellarmine; on his return was made chaplain to Elizabeth, and took his degree of D.D. in 1600. He took a considerable share in the translation of the New Testament ordered by king James I, to whom he was also chaplain; and his name occurs among those of other Oxford divines, who were to translate the Gospels, Acts, and Apocalypse. Dr. Aglionby died at Islip, 6 Feb. 1609/10, aged 43. He was deeply read in the fathers, and also a distinguished scholar and critic.Wikisource has the text of the 1885–1900 Dictionary of National Biography’s article about John Aglionby.
