U.S. geologists say they've determined that as rocks become hotter in the Earth's crust, they become better insulators but poorer conductors. The University of Missouri scientists said their findings from a study of how well rocks conduct heat at different temperatures provide insights into how magmas are formed and will possibly lead to better models of continental collision and the formation of mountain belts. These results shed important light on a geologic question: how large bodies of...

Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.
This word may come from the phrase 'to set cock on hoop,' or 'to drink festively.' Its origin otherwise is unclear. A theory, according to the Word Detective, is that it's a 'transliteration of the French phrase 'coq a huppe,' meaning a rooster displaying its crest ('huppe') in a pose of proud defiance.' Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
