A less-common form of the carbon atom, carbon, is used today by scientists as a method to date once-living organisms. Many people believe that carbon dating disproves the Biblical time scale of history. However, because of the difficulties with current C14 dating techniques, the dates produced have been shown to be faulty. Carbon is produced in the upper atmosphere by action of cosmic rays. Once the C 14 has been formed, by converting nitrogen into carbon, it behaves like ordinary carbon, combining with oxygen to give carbon dioxide, and freely cycling through the cells of all plants and animals.

Hominid skull. It is evident that you have given a great deal of thought to the analysis of this specimen, and you may be quite certain that those of us who are familiar with your prior work in the field were loathe to come to contradiction with your findings. It is with feelings tinged with melancholy that we must deny your request to have the specimen carbon dated. To the best of our knowledge, no Barbie dolls were produced prior to AD, and carbon dating is likely to produce wildly inaccurate results. However, we gladly accept your generous donation of this fascinating specimen to the museum. While it is undoubtedly not a hominid fossil, it is, nonetheless, yet another riveting example of the great body of work you seem to accumulate here so effortlessly. You should know that our Director has reserved a special shelf in his own office for the display of the specimens you have previously submitted to the Institution, and the entire staff speculates daily on what you will happen upon next in your digs at the site you have discovered in your back yard.

A man pushed an Austin Park Ranger into the water Thursday at Commons Ford Metropolitan Park, after the ranger told a crowd to stay 6 feet apart from each other. Though park-goers are rarely that aggressive, it was not the first time Austin groups were disobeying the state's order that people keep their distance if they go out, said Austin officer Justin Berry, who arrested the man. Park rangers "are out there, doing their jobs," Berry said. Everyone's been going to the parks, so the parks have been completely overcrowded. Police temporarily closed down Commons Ford Metropolitan Park due the overcrowding after that incident, and the crowds left without any issues, Berry said.

This is the first time in the history of OVW that a grant program directly encourages men to be part of successful crime prevention efforts addressing sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking, and to become partners in creating respectful and positive relationships. The Engaging Men Grant Program creates a unique opportunity for OVW to support public education campaigns and community organizations to encourage men and boys to work as allies with women and girls for preventing violence. The funded projects include non-profit non-governmental victim services agencies; non-profit community based agencies; state domestic violence or sexual assault coalitions; an institution of higher education; a unit of local government; a tribal coalition; and a tribal non-profit victim services agency.
