A young woman named Alice, abandoned as an infant, is found floating in a tethered canoe. Its mysteries are deep and startling, the inventions of a first-time novelist who is also the assistant librarian at the Gilford public library. Abi will read from her new book, <em><a href="http://www.randomhouse.com/book/220564/lake-people-by-abi-maxwell">Lake People</a></em> tomorrow night at <a href="http://www.gibsonsbookstore.com/event/abi-maxwell-lake-people">Gibson’s Books in Concord</a>.</p><p> Mon, 18 Mar 2013 13:21:15 +0000 Virginia Prescott 23864 at http://nhpr.org Lake People Milfoil Infiltrates Two More New Hampshire Lakes http://nhpr.org/post/milfoil-infiltrates-two-more-new-hampshire-lakes <p>The New Hampshire<a href="http://des.nh.gov/organization/divisions/water/wmb/exoticspecies/index.htm"> Department of Environmental Services </a>has found two more lakes in New Hampshire that have been infested with milfoil, an invasive aquatic plant.

When temperatures fall, density increases as molecules become more tightly packed. <em>Not true for ice</em> – in fact, the <em>exact opposite</em> occurs!</p><p>In liquid form, each water molecule’s hydrogen is bonded to 3 other water molecules. In ice form, each molecule’s hydrogen bonded to 4 others.&nbsp;These hydrogen bonds form an open arrangement that is less compact than liquid water.</p> Fri, 06 Jan 2012 05:00:00 +0000 Dave Anderson 1036 at http://nhpr.org Solid Water
