  • Las Conchas: Fire and water

    Last week, I attended a conference “Impacts and Lessons Learned from the Las Conchas Fire,” sponsored by New Mexico’s Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research.  NM EPSCoR is funded by the National Science Foundation, and this year their focus was to research the impacts of climate change on Northern New Mexico water resources.
    The Las Conchas Fire broadened their focus to the environmental impacts of wildfire--with water and water quality as an important subtext.  The Whitewater-Baldy Complex wildfire gave the meeting added urgency.

  • Nadal picks up 7th French Open crown

    PARIS (AP) — Rafael Nadal was worried.
    A guy so unflinching, so nearly unbeatable, while sliding and grinding and pounding his way past opponent after opponent at the French Open, got a real case of nerves during the 18 hours he and Novak Djokovic waited for the restart of their rain-interrupted final at Roland Garros.
    Instead of focusing on how close he was to winning a record seventh French Open championship, Nadal grew increasingly wary of the other possible outcome: a loss in a fourth consecutive Grand Slam final against Djokovic, who was trying to become the first man since 1969 to collect four straight major titles.
