The characteristics of the lower stratospheric gravity wave field above Halley (75°S, 26°W), Antarctica, from radiosonde observations

Posted on by

first_imgDaily radiosonde observations between 2003 and 2013 from Halley research station, Antarctica (75°S, 26°W) are used to determine climatologies of gravity wave properties in the lower stratosphere (between 15 km and 22 km altitude). Individual waves are extracted from the radiosonde profile using wavelet analysis and separated into upward and downward propagating waves. An increase in the percentage of downward propagating waves (~30% of the waves) is seen during the winter months. For the upward and downward propagating waves their horizontal and vertical wavelength, intrinsic frequency, energy density, pseudo-momentum flux and direction of propagation are determined. The upward propagating wave field is found to be dominated by waves with short vertical wavelength (~1 km) and low intrinsic frequency (ω~f). The downward propagating wave field is composed of a wider distribution of vertical wavelength waves and has a larger proportion of higher frequency waves present. The upward propagating waves show an increase in total energy density in autumn and spring, the larger increase occurs during spring (up to 1.7 J kg-1 in September). The downward propagating waves increase in total energy density occurs during wintertime (up to 0.7 J kg-1 in June). During winter the contributions of the upward and downward propagating waves to the total energy density and pseudo-momentum flux are almost equal. This paper details the first study of individual gravity wave properties combined into upward and downward propagating wave climatologies in the lower stratosphere above Halley.last_img read more

Conlon hit with fine following AIBA comments

Posted on by

first_imgMichael Conlan has been hit with a fine of almost €10,000 by the International Boxing Association for his comments following his exit at the Rio Olympics this summer. The AIBA accepted the Belfast fighter was ‘extremely distraught’ following his surprise defeat to his Russian opponent, they also accept that Conlan is unlikely to pay the fine given that he’s since turned professional. Conlan makes his pro debut at Madison Square Garden on St Patrick’s weekend.last_img

Temba Bavuma’s 3 year old tweet comes back to haunt him as Kohli and…

Powered by Firework Three years ago, South African batsman Temba Bavuma was so awestruck watching Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane bat against a solid New Zealand team, that he couldn’t help but tweet about their ‘masterclass’ innings. But what he didn’t know, was that the duo and the tweet would come back to haunt him 3 years later during the ongoing Pune Test.Advertisement During the 3rd Test against the Kiwis, on October 2016, Kohli and Rahane put up a massive 365-run partnership for the 4th wicket which helped India declare at the score of 557 in the 1st innings. Kohli scored 211 and Rahane just fell short of a double hundred at 188. And Bavuma who enjoyed every moment of their innings, tweeted saying: ‘Kohli & Rahane, could watch these guys bat all day #masterclass #indvsnz’.Advertisement Unfortunately for him, that old tweet caught everyone’s eye three years later as the Indian skipper and his deputy, with a partnership of 178, piled on the runs on Day 2 of the ongoing second Test in Pune. Virat Kohli scored a sublime double hundred helping the hosts sail towards a commanding first-innings total on Friday. And Rahane, who was dismissed after scoring an important 59, went through the first session unscathed.India declared their innings on 601/5 and Kohli, playing his 50th test as the Indian skipper, remained unbeaten at 254. His magnificent innings was supported from the other end by Ravindra Jadeja (91) whose crucial cameo came handy after the hosts lost Rahane just after Lunch.South Africa meanwhile, have been unable to find an answer for India’s pace attack and lost 3 important wickets (including that of Bavuma’s) at the end of the days play.Poor old Bavuma, his wish has been finally granted. Literally!  Advertisementlast_img read more

Curley Censured over Complaints of Alleged Sexual Harassment

Posted on by

first_imgBy John Burton and Jay Cook |FREEHOLD — “Brash.” “Brusque.” “Independent.” “Bully.” These were some of the terms members of the public used last week to both show support for and to disparage embattled Monmouth County Freeholder John Curley as the remaining four members of the board voted to formally admonish the combative Curley for his alleged comments.The freeholders, all Republican, voted unanimously on Friday, Dec. 8 to officially censure fellow Republican Curley. In the authorized resolution, they accused him of taking actions that were “…reprehensible, offensive, unbecoming of an elected official, and compromise the integrity of Freeholder Curley’s office and the Board as a whole…”Curley did not appear at the hearing.The freeholders’ action, however, is far from the final word on this matter, as Curley’s lawyer vowed to continue the legal struggle. Last week Angelo Genova, the attorney representing Curley, had gone to federal court to file a civil rights violation suit.Angelo Genova, the attorney representing Freeholder John P. Curley, challenged the Monmouth County Freeholder board before action was taken censuring Curley amidst claims he used salacious claims to county employees.In addition, Genova successfully convinced the judge to block some of the freeholders’ actions, especially the release of findings from a five-month investigation conducted by an unnamed retired Superior Court judge and a restriction on Curley being able to return to work. The judge overturned some other prohibitions put in place in light of the report, such as preventing Curley from using county property or speaking with county employees which essentially kept him from his office and assistant.Genova told the freeholders last Friday he would look to expand his lawsuit on behalf of Curley, alleging the freeholders violated the judge’s order by incorporating portions of the report that is presumably under seal into their censure resolution.“It is my opinion,” Genova told the county officials, “you have violated public ethics law.”Genova went on to allege of the county officials’ action, “This is not due process. This is a charade.”Monmouth County Freeholders (L to R) Serena DiMaso, Thomas A. Arnone and Lillian G. Burry listened to numerous county residents defend John P. Curley at a special public meeting held in Freehold on Dec. 8.While not present, a defiant Curley offered a statement, distributed through his attorney, saying essentially that, serving as the only full-time freeholder in Monmouth County among the five, “I am proud to support all people regardless of race, creed, religion, political party affiliation, and to help all with just receiving a phone call or email.”Curley went on to criticize his Republican colleagues and county Republican chair (and county sheriff) Shaun Golden for their alleged lack of concern for their constituents, calling the action “a slap in the face to all of our residents.”“This is about basic respect and human dignity,” Freeholder Director Lillian Burry said of the Board of Chosen Freeholders’ steps of invoking censure, as well as ordering a review and updating of existing county guidelines for sexual harassment.“This type of behavior is just wrong and must not be tolerated,” Freeholder Thomas Arnone concluded.County residents supporting Freeholder John P. Curley donned stickers reading “I Stand With John” as a special public meeting aimed to censure Curley came to a close on Dec. 8 in Freehold.According to the resolution of censure read by the county’s special legal counsel Jonathan Testa, there are documented complaints about Curley’s alleged behavior that expose the freeholders to legal action as he “likely engaged in angry, vulgar outbursts causing female employees to flee their offices…”The resolution goes on to say Curley “made many other salacious and vulgar statements” to county employees. He’s accused of using sexually charged expletives; of saying, “I’ll show you a snake show, sit on my lap and I’ll show you a show”; telling one female, “Oh, that’s you I wanted to bend over and take”; to publicly calling male employees derogatory homosexual slurs, among other alleged examples. “If proven to be true,” the resolution stated, these complaints, “are disgusting, reprehensible, shocking, and should never be made by anyone, let alone a County Freeholder…”Since the investigation commenced, “more and more stories have emerged” regarding Curley’s alleged behavior, Burry acknowledged.The audience was full of members of the public, many of them wearing “I Stand With John” stickers, offering their support and willing to overlook these and other alleged transgressions, seeing Curley as a sort-of champion of the electorate and taxpayer.Spring Lake Heights resident James Martin showed solidarity with Curley. “What you said to me did not sound like worthy of censure, but maybe of mild criticism,” Martin said to the freeholders. “Over the years, I’ve seen good ones and I’ve seen bad ones,” Martin continued, “and I’d say John Curley is at the top of the list,” of the good ones. “He may be a little brusque, that’s true, but sometimes brusque is appropriate,” he said. “He’s done some very good things.”William Meyer is a Tinton Falls resident with a law practice in Red Bank and was a volunteer for Curley’s unsuccessful 2006 Red Bank mayoral campaign. He compared Curley to a plumber who uses salty, colorful language, but in the end, gets the job done. “I have seen him be brusque where he takes a passionate approach to something where at first glance you think he’s over the top,” Meyer said, “then only to research things and find out he was way ahead of the curve, absolutely correct and he had something we wish every politician had done back in the day.”Vincent LePore, a long-standing Long Branch political gadfly, said, “I urge Freeholder Curley to dump the corrupt party political system and run as an independent in 2018…and he will win.”On the other hand, Pamela Murphy, Freehold Borough, is a county employee, who had worked at one of the two nursing homes the county had formerly owned. “This is not a good person,” she said of Curley, calling him a “bully.”“I witnessed it,” she said. “He may have done good things but that doesn’t make him a good person.”“What is this? Alabama?” asked Mike Beson, Ocean, referencing the Roy Moore controversy. “Wake up, guys, wake up to the new world we live in.“You have to take care of every single employee,” he told the freeholders.Genova raised a number of legal points, arguing against the validity of the investigation and report and the freeholders’ actions. Genova said Curley does not intend to resign. “Mr. Curley plans to continue to serve the people of Monmouth County,” the lawyer said. And he plans on continuing his federal lawsuit, Genova added.This article was first published in the Dec. 14-21, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

Road to provincials just got a whole lot tougher for LVR

Posted on by

first_imgBy Bruce Fuhr,The Nelson Daily SportsThe L.V. Rogers Bombers now realize booking tickets to the B.C. High School AAA Boy’s Soccer tournament will not be as easy as in past years.Mount Baker took advantage of a short-staffed Bomber squad to squeak out a 1-0 victory in at the Wild High School Boy’s Soccer Tournament Saturday in the East Kootenay City.“We watched Baker play and knew we need some pace to stretch their wing/backs,” said Bomber coach Keith Williams. “Opportunities we had in the last few minutes proved worthless with errant shots,” Williams added. “A very excited and proud Baker team celebrated a well-deserved 1-nil victory.”The Bombers were missing Sean Hickson, Luis Loeschnik, Bruno Moro and Conrad Lanaway for the entire tournament.LVR opened the five-team, round robin tournament by stomping Selkirk Storm of Kimberley. Mitch Melanson had four goals to lead the Bombers.The Bombers then dumped Prince Charles Comets of Creston by the same 6-0 score in a very chippy contest. Luke Mori and Melanson each scored twice with Cormac Southam and Simon Sheppard adding singles. LVR’s Russell Ray was ejected from the contest.A tired and weary Bomber squad concluded the tournament by sneaking past Fernie Falcons 2-0. Mori and a converted defender to striker Kevin Lewis scored for LVR.“We were tired and sore after playing three games with one to three subs, so we took it easy (against Fernie),” Williams explained. “It was a nice way to conclude the tournament .  . . playing good patient defending (against) a weaker side.”The silver medal concludes the tournament season for LVR. The squad finished 12th at the Best of the Best High School Boy’s Soccer Tournament in Chilliwack before capturing top spot the weekend previous in Summerland.LVR now prepares for the Kootenay Zone Final set for Wednesday, November 3 in Cranbrook.  Game time is 1 p.m. MDT.The winner advances to the Provincial AAA Tournament November 25-27 at the Burnaby Lake Sport Complex. [email protected]last_img read more

What Stories Are Your Numbers Telling You?

Posted on by

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now Your sales numbers tell a story. Your numbers paint a picture of what you believe, as well as the actions you take based on those beliefs.If your pipeline is empty, your pipeline metrics tell the story of a salesperson (or sales organization) that isn’t prospecting. Or maybe it tells the story of someone struggling to effectively prospect in a day and age when business acumen, situational knowledge, and value creation are the price of admission.If your pipeline is full of deals that are smaller than your target deal size, the story your average deal size tells might be about a salesperson that is calling too low because he doesn’t feel like he is producing results when he is working on the long sales cycle deals. Or maybe it’s the story of a salesperson that doesn’t call on large clients because he believes they already have partners in place, because they’re too difficult to win.If the time your deals spend in a certain stage of your sales process is longer than it should be, your numbers tell the story of a salesperson that isn’t in control of the sales process. Your time in stage metric might tell the story of a salesperson that isn’t asking for or gaining the commitments she needs. Or it might tell the story of a salesperson that isn’t following a sales process at all.In business-to-business sales, your numbers at the end of the quarter don’t often tell you anything about that quarter. The story your number tells at the end of the quarter is the story of what you did during the prior couple of quarters—maybe even the prior year. It might be the story of a salesperson that worked to make their number, taking action long before it was necessary. Or it might tell the story of someone who took a quarter off waiting for deals to come to them.You are the hero in your story your numbers tell. The story your numbers tell provides you with a picture of your beliefs and your actions. Your numbers tell the story of where you are challenged, and where you are succeeding. They also tell you what you need to do more of and what you need to change. But this is only true if you let the numbers tell you your story.QuestionsWhat stories do your numbers tell?What is the underlying belief that leads to your numbers?What actions result in your numbers telling these particular stories?Why is the story that you tell about your numbers a different story than someone else might tell about your numbers?last_img read more

London Olympics: Zhang Jike wins gold in men’s table tennis

Posted on by

first_imgWorld No.1 Zhang Jike beat fellow Chinese player Wang Hao for gold in Thursday’s Olympic table tennis singles final. Zhang, the 24-year-old World Champion, closed it out in five games to win four games to one- 18-16, 11-5, 11-6, 10-12, 13-11.”I’m very excited, it’s my first time at the Olympics and it has been my dream to win the gold medal since I started playing,” Zhang said.”I feel like I have completed a mission. In table tennis there can only be one winner.”It is a third-successive Olympic final defeat for Wang, who stalled Zhang’s march to victory by winning game four and putting up considerable resistance in game five.”Everyone wants to win the gold, but I lost to a teammate so it’s not so serious. I’ve done my best,” Wang said.”The first game was quite important. The others followed as a result of that.”Earlier on Wednesday, Germany’s Dimitrij Ovtcharov won a captivating bronze medal match against Chuang Chih-Yuan of Chinese Taipei.Ovtcharov, the World No.12, triumphed four games to two in a 12-10, 9-11, 8-11, 13-11, 11-5, 14-12 victory.In the women’s singles Wednesday, China’s Li Xiaoxia beat teammate Ding Ning in a controversial singles final.last_img read more

first_imgOxford destroy West Ham with four-goal thrashingby Freddie Taylora month agoSend to a friendShare the loveWest Ham United have been knocked out of the Carabao Cup after suffering a shock 4-0 defeat to League One side Oxford United.The Hammers were dire as Oxford run riot at Kassam Stadium.Manuel Pellegrini made eight changes to the team that beat Manchester United last Sunday and was punished accordingly.Second-half goals from Elliott Moore, Matty Taylor, Tariqe Fosu and Shandon Baptiste gave the U’s a deserved victory.Speaking after the game, Pellegrini said: “We played against a team who played very well.”It’s easy to say that we played very badly, but I think Oxford did everything they needed to win this game here at home for them.”They played with a lot of motivation, with desire and we didn’t play well.”If you give them time and space all of them are good players. They scored four goals, they had other chances and I think we only created one in the first ten minutes of the game and one in the last minute.”In the second half we lost all the moments [which decided the match].”If you want to continue playing in all competitions you have to use your whole squad, and we played with [experienced] players. I repeat, Oxford made it tough and after that [we perhaps showed a] lack of belief that these games are always very difficult for the teams who are in the better league.”Of course for the fans who came to Wimbledon, and to Oxford today, it’s not the best way to answer them. Football is like this, unfortunately it was a very bad night for some players and we’ll try to recover in our next game in the Premier League.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
