Although the ring-width series could be tentatively matched, radiocarbon dating revealed that the growth rings of the junipers from the studied site are neither annual nor represent a common periodicity.
It was found that the trees are exceptionally sensitive and respond individually to the complex local climate.
Over the last 18 years, Young Life in Ethiopia has grown 34% per year.
Currently, over 15,000 kids attend Young Life outreach clubs every week and almost 10,000 kids are involved in weekly discipleship groups.
The people are elegant, industrious and possess the deep warmth commonly found in African cultures.The prisons are often understaffed and under-resourced, which is where Young Life steps in.In July 2017, Young Life leaders in Ethiopia put on a day camp in an Addis Ababa prison that 150 kids attended.In this paper, we assess the periodicity of growth-ring formation for 13 stem discs from a site in Central-Northern Ethiopia by crossdating and radiocarbon dating.The crossdating process is described more transparently than usual to allow open discussion of the methodology employed.We advise against all travel to most parts of the Somali region, specifically the Nogob (previously Fik), Jarar (previously Degehabur), Shabelle (previously Gode), Korahe and Dollo (previously Warder) zones and within 100 kilometres of the border with Somalia in the Afder and Liben zones.
