found in North America. My jaw is just dropping to the remarkable

Flying with a vulture! A short Fb video shows a vulture
landing on a paraglider. The pilot pets it a little, and then
it takes off again. Great footage of the bird using it tail to
steer and its wings to perfectly soar. Credits are in the video.

6 Fascinating Places to See the Fibonacci Sequence
article from Mental Floss

The Fibonacci sequence is a series of numbers in which
each digit reflects the sum of the two preceding numbers,
as shown below:

So what? You may ask.So this: "The sequence is in
everything from cabbages to music to ocean waves.
It can also be found in the form of the golden ratio,
also known as Phi and expressed numerically as 1.618."

Photos and videos show the many ways the sequence
is shown in science, nature, music, finance, astronomy,
art... Sunflowers, pine cones, human fingers, snail shells,
ram horns, ants, a hawk's flight, ancient Greek temples,
financial techniques, the shape of galaxies*, orbits of
planets, Saturn's rings, and your ears!
(*Spiral galaxies like the Milky Way, Galaxy M81, and
the Andromeda nebula all resemble the golden spiral.")
It's everywhere!

"The sea level scenarios and information contained
in this tool originate from a 2022 technical report
produced by the Sea Level Rise and Coastal Flood
Hazard Scenarios and Tools Interagency Task Force.
This report provides the most up-to-date sea level
rise scenarios, available for all U.S. states and
territories, out to the year 2150. It is the latest
product from the Task Force, which includes the
National Aeronautics and Space Administration,
the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration,
Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Geological
Survey, and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, along
with partners in academia. The information in the
report and this tool is intended to inform coastal
communities and others about current and future
sea level rise to help contextualize its effects for
decision making purposes." You can download the
entire technical report here.
How the tool works: Start the tool by
clicking on its url. Scroll to the bottom of the
popup page, and click Start.
Pick on of the blue dots along the coastal map.
Use the toggle tools to change Decades
(2020 - 2150) and Scenarios (Low - High).

Hi, kids! I'm Dakota! I am the newest Brittany here at
Good Sites for Kids! I'm a retired hunter and a mama.
My fur-sister Lillian and I are American Brittanies, both
rescues, and both South Dakota natives. When
we're not helping out on the site, we patrol outdoors,
chase rabbits and squirrels, woof at kids at the
playground, rack out on our beds, ask
for
treats,
and hang out with our humans!
