Now they’ve been hammered again.”According to Davis, the stretch of Florida Bay where seagrass beds appear to have been hit hardest is a popular destination for sport fishermen and glades tourists alike—folks who form the backbone of the Florida Keys’ economy. It’s also a critical habitat for sea turtles, manatees, sharks, rays, and lobster that serves as a buffer between the ocean and freshwater marshes further inland. Further north, the northwest flank of the Cape Sable features a newly- widened strip of beach, with racks of dead seagrass strewn everywhere. A pristine stretch of coastline that Davis describes as “one of the last untamed beaches in the US,” Cape Sable has been eroding and losing wetlands rapidly over the past century, thanks in part to canals cut by humans in the 1. It took the brunt of Irma’s four to six foot surges last weekend. Tiffany Troxler, an Everglades ecologist at Florida International University, told Gizmodo that the marshes found here are adapted to powerful storms and powerful surges. But thanks to the diversion of freshwater from the Everglades over the past century, these systems are “in a weakened condition,” she said.“Having the system in a state in which the freshwater wetlands are becoming more saline, plus the increasing effects of sea level rise,” means that “the system can’t respond as well to extreme events,” she said.
On a brighter note, Troxler added that storm surges can deposit phosphorus- rich sands into wetlands, possibly helping some of these nutrient- poor ecosystems recover. Up the coastline near the mouth of Shark River, Davis noted that the Everglades’ highly- productive mangrove forests seemed largely intact, although many taller stands of trees were entirely defoliated. Again, it will take a long time—months, if not years of survey work—to fully assess the damage these ecosystems incurred and the degree to which they’ll recover. Davis and his colleagues see this as important work, not just because the Everglades is an ecological treasure, but because the people of South Florida depend on the ecosystem services it provides, from coastal protection to clean drinking water. Our water filters through the Everglades,” Davis said. If the predicted effects of climate change, from sea level rise to more intense storms, indicates one thing to South Florida’s ecologists, it’s that the urgency to restore a more natural flow of freshwater into the Everglades, in order to rebuild ecological resilience, has never been greater.“Right now we’re planning for in 2. Troxler said. “It’s not that far in the future.

The Iris Cutscene From Mega Man X4 Is Somehow Even Better When It's Skipping. Speedrunner Calebhart. Mega Man X4 at the 2. Smash The Record event when he got to one of the game’s more infamous cutscenes and it started to skip. Like at Awesome Games Done Quick, Smash The Record runs have donation thresholds that unlock special audience requests when met (the money raised is for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital). For Mega Man X4, that meant unlocking the Iris cutscene, one of the game’s most laughable conversations in which Zero holds a dying character in his arms and breakdowns like an out of breath toddler.
When Calebhart. 42 got there though, the game started to skip. As the first Mega Man X game to be on PS1, and thus a disc, Mega Man X4 has all the downsides you might associate with that era, including inconsistent disc reading and some really questionable voice acting. Prior to the scene the speedrunner noted that it might not work.
His hedge turned out to be prescient. Sure enough, only a few lines into the Shakespearean exchange, Zero started to stutter before getting caught in an inescapable vortex of “Hang in there!”For those of you who are too young to remember, PS1 discs scratched easily and the disc readers inside the machines weren’t very good either. Fortunately for Calebhart. PS1 disc began starting and stopping as the data loading from it failed to get read correctly. You can re- watch the entire run here.
