first_imgScientists onboard NIWA research vessel Tangaroa will map the area using a multibeam echo sounder which emits sound beams that map the seafloor and objects in the water column such as gas bubbles. NIWA scientists are surveying seafloor in the waters around Whakaari/White Island in the Bay of Plenty. “There is also the potential to see new hydrothermal vents – particularly in shallow water close to the island. No-one has collected water column imaging close to Whakaari so this is an incredible opportunity to discover new areas of volcanic activity.” The scientists will also be looking for significant changes that may have affected the ecology of the area that may require further work. Dr Mountjoy explained that the aim of the survey is to understand how these sedimentary deposits have changed and if there have been any submarine landslides.center_img Water samples will also be taken to measure methane and carbon dioxide gas levels which will help detect the presence of underwater seeps linked to volcanic activity. Mapped in 2005 and again in 2019, the area is known for its underwater vents and canyons. However, the eruption of Whakaari/White Island in December last year is likely to have significantly altered the seafloor landscape. NIWA marine geologist Dr Joshu Mountjoy said: “What is visible from sea level is only a small part of the volcano – most of it is under the ocean so we want to see how that submarine environment has changed.”last_img read more

I couldn’t do anything.” Rodman said the horror injury happened for a third time during a tryst with a nurse in New York. He revealed: “Same story. I went to the hotel room, we had sex, and it happened again. “They had to take me to the hospital. The nurse was bringing doctors to figure out what had happened to me. “In the end there were eight doctors around me. I told them that I knew what I had. “But they insisted that they wanted to take care of me, that I be well. read also:Tyson confirms date for comeback fight against Roy Jones “In the end I was diagnosed with a ‘penile contusion.’” Rodman went on to say one of his former coaches could tell when he’d had sex the night before, as he would be exhausted on the court. He said: “I [had sex before games] twice in my life and I never knew that this was ruining you when you were playing a game. “I tried to have sex all night before a big game… it didn’t go well. “The coach told me in the first quarter, ‘Dennis, I have to talk to you. [When you play badly], I know what you did last night.’” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Dennis Rodman has revealed he slept with 2,000 women including 500 prostitutes – and broke his penis three times. The NBA legend, 59, was notorious for his off-court actions, with Netflix smash hit The Last Dance revealing even earlier this year. But now Rodman – who was briefly married to Carmen Electra during his time at the Chicago Bulls in the late 1990s – has revealed every gory detail of his sexual encounters. The five-time NBA champion revealed: “[I’ve been with] more than 2,000 women, of which at least 500 were prostitutes. “I had sex in each and every one of the Berto Center’s [Bull’s training facility] rooms. “The weight room, the training court… it was crazy. “When they read this my team-mates are going to say ‘damn!’ Rodman had previously revealed he has broken his penis THREE times in his life – with one girl even thinking she’d killed him. He told Vice magazine: “I was on a boat one time in Dallas, Texas, and was out in the sun all day long, drinking, drinking, partying, partying then I was out for the night drunk as a motherf***er. “Me and my girl ended up in a king size bed, inside the boat. “She loved to have sex. She said she wanted to try something new: [for me to] go running and jump on her. “So I ran, ran and ran, and jumped… and it literally broke. “There was blood everywhere. She went pale. “She began to shout, ‘Oh my god. He’s dead. I killed him. Oh my god.’ “But I tried to calm her and said: ‘No, honey, I broke my d***.’” Rodman – who claims he was once offered $20million to get Madonna pregnant – recalled the second break occurred while he was part of the Detroit Pistons “Bad Boys” team. “The Worm” continued: “I was playing for Detroit, against the Rockets, and a girl took a plane to see me.
