Date TOMS RIVER In 1915, Ocean County was the lone county in New Jersey to vote to approve panting women the right to vote. The move to allow New Jersey women to vote ultimately failed that year, but was approved Ave years "latter, when New Jersey became the 29th state to ratify the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

"You wonder, why did the men vote to give women the right to vote in Ocean County?" Cynthia H. Smith, of the Ocean County Cultural and Heritage Commission, asked Saturday morning, after she gave a lecture entitled "Women's History in New Jersey." In the early 1900s, Ocean County women held "coffee Matches" or gatherings, to talk about women's rights and voting, Smith told the roughly 30 people gathered at Ocean County Historical Society Museum for her lecture. Smith touched on topics such as the history of the involvement of New Jersey women in the areas of medicine, sports, politics, arts and education. Diane Neubauer of Barn-egat listened to the lecture and afterward toured the museum, on Hadley Avenue in downtown Toms River. "It is fun to see the history of the area you are in," Neubauer said.

Smith told the group tales of the lives of important women like Ann Ridgeway Gauntt, who lived in Tuckerton and Little Egg Harbor in the Signature Make check payable to: ASBURY I PARK PRESS IDy Press makes a difference Larger size ads available.

Co-lateral victims Warming threshold A new study by a team of scientists from three countries reveals that the world's atmospheric carbon dioxide (C02) must be reduced below its current level to avoid climate disasters. Writing in Open Atmospheric Science Journal, the authors say that earlier predictions pointing to a C02 danger level of 450 parts per million (ppm) is far higher than the level that wil! bring about catastrophic climate change. The current C02 concentration is 385 ppm, and the optimum level would be less than 350 ppm, according to the team. They say they base their conclusion on improved data about the Earth's climate history and ongoing observations of change, especially in the polar regions.

Department of Energy scientists working out of Los Alamos, N.M., say the Hyperion Power Module will be factory-sealed, contain no weapons-grade material and will be nearly impossible to break into because it will be encased in concrete and buried underground. The reactors will use a chemical reaction in uranium hydride to create heat, which is transferred to the surface to power steam turbines. The units are not water-cooled and cannot melt down, according to the firm that has licensed the technology. New Mexico-based Hyperion Power Generation Co. says each unit costs about $25 million, but monthly power fees would be only about $250 per home when divided amongthe 10,000 households itcould serve.

The unit's softball-sized fuel must be replaced every seven to 10 years. Solar cycle 24 Wed. NOV. 26 7:30 PM I ZOD Fri. NOV.

Renewed conflict between the Democratic Republic of the Congo's government and fighters led by Gen. Laurent Nkunda also has created a massive humanitarian crisis. Thousands of people have been left malnourished and ill after being displaced by the advancing rebel forces, including more than 50 wildlife rangers who had spent years protecting the gorillas and other wildlife in Virunga Park prior to being driven out by the rebels. The park director, Emmanuel de Merode, called the seizure of the park's headquarters "unprecedented, even in all the years of conflict in the region." During repeated attacks in 2007, 10 of the endangered primates were killed. Park officials say that some of the rebels are now hunting and camping in the same forested hills that are home to about 200 of the last remaining 700 mountain gorillas.

The sun had been relatively free of any new spots since the previous cycle ended last year. Scientists were able to determine the new sunspots were part of the next cycle and not the one just ended by observing their polarity and distance from the solar equator. The first sunspots of a new cycle initially emerge at high latitudes, then appear progressively closer to the equator as the cycle matures. This cycle is the 24th since detailed solar record-keeping began in 1755.
