Some comments on transient and steady-state reconnection at the dayside magnetopause

Posted on by

first_imgReconnection at the dayside magnetopause is the principal method by which energy is transferred from the solar wind into the magnetosphere-ionosphere system. There is still considerable uncertainty as to whether reconnection is transient or quasi-steady. Here we discuss some of the implications of assuming that reconnection occurring in regions where the magnetosheath flow is super-Alfvénic must be transient. We use a simple magnetospheric model to illustrate where on the magnetopause transient reconnection is most likely to occur, and show that the location of these regions is dependent critically upon the dipole tilt angle and the interplanetary magnetic field orientation. Although our idealised examples do not take into account temporal variations of the solar wind conditions, or the influence of the bow shock or magnetosheath, we believe that they demonstrate interesting features. For example, the results suggest that reconnection for northward IMF is almost always likely to be transient.last_img read more

Speech: D-Day 75 Commemoration – British High Commissioner to Australia Vicki Treadell’s speech

Posted on by

first_imgAnd in the world we live in, in a world that is changing, where in this 21st century the geo-politics and centres of gravity are shifting, a multi-polar world where the world order as we have known in it the last half of the last century may not now be holding as we had hoped: Peace, Democracy, Tolerance and the Rule of Law are ever more important to hold on to. So this commemoration is about relevance to contemporary times and challenges. It is for me about our humanity and the values we stand by. It is for us, the living to ensure that the sacrifice of D-Day, WW2 and conflicts since, of men like Laurie and Jack, was not in vain and never to be forgotten.The scale of these events remind us of the price to be paid if we fail. By the summer of 1944 over 2 million sailors, soldiers and airmen had gathered had gathered in Britain in preparation for the invasion. D-Day is often portrayed as a predominantly American, Canadian and British affair but, whilst these nations contributed that majority of the soldiers who fought on their beaches of Norther France, almost a dozen nations contributed to the maritime elements of the invasion force and over a dozen more to the vital air effort. One Royal Airforce squadron alone was made up of 9 nationalities, brothers in arms. Over 2500 Australians were involved, predominantly in the air in both the Royal Airforce and in the Royal Australian Airforce or in Royal Navy ships. Some of their stories have been curated in the Australian War Memorial’s D-Day exhibit.And here this evening, many of you will have family stories, a father, uncle or grandfather who went to war. Indeed, my colleague, His Excellence the US Ambassador A.B. Culverhouse told me his own father landed on Omaha beach on Day 2 of the D-Day invasion. This is about family, our family of nations.The raw horror of what these young men faced as they jumped into the night skies above Normandy or as they landed on the beaches or manned the defences can only be imagined. The acrid smell of gun fire and smoke, the shattering cries of the injured and dying all around them. It is a sobering thought that, including French civilians, this one event would see over half a million casualties in Normandy.I stand here representing a Britain that is looking to the future and our role in it. Contrary to some popular opinion we are not retreating nor looking inward. We are a Global Britain looking to the world and the part we play in it to uphold all that we stand for as we did then. We will always stand by our friends and allies. With our likeminded partners we will continue to make the case for Peace, Democracy, Tolerance and the Rile of Law and defend the Freedoms that guarantee this.Evenings like this remind us of the best and worst of our humanity and why we must preserve the former and work against the latter. As we have gathered here this evening, in the poignant surroundings of the Australian War Memorial, we remember them, we remember their sacrifice and we will work to guarantee their hard won Peace.Lest We Forget. Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen.A very warm welcome to our D-Day 75 Commemoration.Before I proceed further I would like to first acknowledge the Ngunnawal peoples as the traditional owners of this land upon which we meet tonight, and pay my respects to all their Elders past, present and future.Distinguished guests, Governor General – His Excellency General The Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove and Lady Lynne Cosgrove, fellow Ambassadors and High Commissioners or their representatives, in particular from the United States, Canada, New Zealand, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Czech Republic, Poland and Norway whose countries were part of allied forces involved in the D-Day events we commemorate here today. And, of course, Australia, so welcome too Vice Chief of Defence Force, Vice Admiral David Johnstone, representing the Chief of Defence Force.But, if you will forgive me, I reserve my warmest welcome to two amazing gentlemen who join us this evening. Heroes both and the reason why we are here, to commemorate the courage and sacrifice of the men and women who gave of themselves for our peace today. Ladies and Gentlemen, join me in welcoming: Australian Flying Officer Laurie Woods, who flew as a bomb aimer with Royal Australian Air Force 460 Squadron on the night of the invasion; and, Brit Jack Eaves of the Royal Marines who was a landing craft coxswain on the beaches on D-Day. Tonight is about you and your comrades and the fact that we will never forget what you did for our today.I also acknowledge our sponsors whose generosity has made this evening possible: Rolls Royce, Saatchi, Canberra Airport, L3 Technologies Australia, General Dynamics Land Systems Australia, Ultra Electronics and Cobham Aviation Services.In this wonderful venue I must also pay tribute to Dr Brendon Nelson and his team – Shane Casey and James Mazengarb – who produced the excellent “D-Day – The Australian Story” display that you will have walked past as you made your way through the National War Memorial. This was brought to life by the National Military Re-enactment Group who are standing resplendent in their period uniforms at the back of the hall now. Thank you one and all.In the past 24 hours you will have seen on your TV screens or, these days, your social media channels, 16 world leaders representing the countries involved in the allied invasion on D-Day, gather in Portsmouth. But this was not nostalgia or some reliving of past glories. This was about understanding the price of peace and why we must hold onto the lessons learnt to preserve that peace. To understand why men like Laurie and Jack stood up. Why sons, brothers, husbands and fathers gave of themselves with courage, overcoming their personal fears, finding strength within themselves to do what was asked of them. Many paid the ultimate price.So, the 16 leaders in Portsmouth represented a remarkable assembly, one that underlined the importance of this anniversary. D-Day was a pivotal moment in the war – failure may well have seen a different outcome and the map and reality of Europe would be very different today. The 16 Leaders put their names to a Proclamation affirming a shared responsibility: To stand for Tolerance To stand for Peacecenter_img To stand for the Rule of Law To stand for Democracylast_img read more

Posted on by

first_imgTHE SKINNYPour yourself a stiff one – cheap bourbon, if you please – and prop your elbows on the bar while you take a listen to The Barstool Romeos.  The Barstool Romeos – Mike McGill and Andy Pirkle on guitar, Eric Keeble on percussion, and Josh Sidman on bass – is a Knoxville, Tennessee, outfit that offers up its brand of countrified rock and roll straight with no chaser.  These Knoxville honky tonk heroes are out and about sharing the sounds of their debut record, Twisted Steel & Sex Appeal.FOR FANS OFMerle Haggard, Ray Wylie Hubbard, The Jompson Brothers, James McMurtryTHEY SAID IT“The Barstool Romeos are what great country music and rock ‘n’ roll is all about. Their music is fun, thoughtful and real. Mike McGill and Andy Pirkle sound like they were born in a honky tonk and bathed in beer every night. (They still kind of smell that way.) They harmonize like angels who fell out of heaven into a bucket of barbecue. These are guys who used the work of Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, Del Reeves and, maybe, the early Allman Brothers as their musical Bible and win converts every time they play. Twisted Steel & Sex Appeal is one of the best albums of 2013 and one of the best debuts I’ve heard.”  – Wayne Bledsoe, Knoxville Sentinel Entertainment Writer & Host of WDVX’s “All Over The Road” ON STAGEThe Barstool Romeos just wrapped up a weekend opening for outlaw country songstress Elizabeth Cook in Maryville, Tennessee.  Honky tonk fans can catch the band on April 19th at The Hummingbird Taproom & Stage in Macon, Georgia, on April 20th in Cowan, Tennessee, at Brown’s Pool Room, and at Barley’s Taproom & Pizzeria in Knoxville on Apri 27th.IN THEIR OWN WORDS“We all come from an eclectic mix of musical backgrounds.  I come from a country, bluegrass, gospel background.  Andy was raised on country but ended up in a punk band.  We love the blues and rock and roll and we have been influenced by everyone from Merle Haggard and The Louvin Brother’s harmonies to ZZ Top, AC/DC, and John Lee Hooker.  In this band, it is all about the song.  We love real music, just anything that has substance.”– Songwriter/guitarist Mike McGill on The Barstool Romeos’ influencesON THE WEBFor more on The Barstool Romeos, point the whiskey bottle in your browser to http://www.reverbnation.com/barstoolromeos for information on shows, music, and video clips.  You can also check out “Cheap Bourbon Whiskey” on this month’s edition of Trail Mix.last_img read more

$100K Reward Offered for Tips in Gary Melius Shooting [Video]

Posted on by

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York The reward for tips leading to the arrest of the assailant who shot and wounded Oheka Castle owner Gary Melius was increased Tuesday to $100,000 on the year anniversary of the shooting.Suffolk County police previously offered the standard $5,000 reward through their Crime Stoppers program. Melius’ new reward, culled from friends and family, is quadruple the $25,000 that Crime Stoppers is offering for tips in the Long Island Serial Killer probe—an amount that authorities have said was the biggest in county history.“There’s a $100,000 reward now to get information to solve this crime and bring to justice who is responsible,” Melius said a video statement released to the media. “I have been told by…friends that with conversations and people they know that law enforcement has said it could definitely be a help and that’s why they came forward.”The 70-year-old prolific political campaign donor—who lives at the 109,000-square-foot French-style chateau in Huntington that he turned into a catering hall, hotel and restaurant—was getting into his car when the masked shooter opened fire at point-blank range, hitting Melius in the head at about 12:30 p.m. on Feb. 24, 2014. The attacker did not say a word.READ MORE: Gunfire at the Castle: Who Shot Oheka’s Owner? And Why? Melius was on his way to have lunch with former U.S. Sen. Al D’Amato—one of the many powerful attendees at Melius’ Oheka card games—when the bullets started flying. He was taken to North Shore-Long Island Jewish Hospital in Manhasset, where he underwent emergency surgery before returning home a week later.Police declined to comment Monday on the status of the continuing investigation and authorities have not named any suspects. They have previously declined to discuss whether they believe more than one person was involved or if they have any suspected motives.Four months after the shooting, investigators released surveillance camera images of the shooter’s getaway vehicle: an older model, Khaki-metal-colored four-door Jeep Grand Cherokee. Although the castle’s security cameras captured images of the SUV, there was no description of the shooter.Oheka Castle, the former estate of financial tycoon Otto Kahn, has also been host to many high-profile weddings, such as that of the disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner and Hillary Rodham Clinton aide Huma Abedin (which was officiated by former President Bill Clinton), and Kevin Jonas of The Jonas Brothers.“The detectives assigned to my case have been very comforting to me, informative, give me great confidence that they will find out who do this,” Melius said. “I know that they’re working very hard at it and I know that no resources have been cut from them. They are actively trying to solve this case.”Suffolk County police ask that anyone with information about this case call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. Melius also set up a hotline for tips in the case, asking tipsters to call 631-912-6969. All calls will be kept confidential.last_img read more

Cloud supports serving members where they work

Posted on by

first_img 8SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Many credit unions today began 50-, 60- or even 70-plus years ago with a single sponsor. In most cases, the credit union’s first office was on the sponsor’s site. Many credit unions’ first directors and employees were employees of the sponsoring company as well. This structure helped instill trust and create strong member relationships, which turned into a true financial partnership over time.When they were on break from work at the sponsor or taking their lunch, members would walk over to the credit union, say hi, grab some coffee and maybe conduct a transaction. When you combine the resulting strong personal relationships (even friendships) with such a local presence, you often got a captive, targeted audience to engage at a personal level.During that era, credit unions enjoyed–even took for granted–that status of trusted financial partner. Members, in turn, showed loyalty by thinking of the credit union first for every financial need. In that age, members talked about the credit union with their co-workers.To stay competitive, some credit unions eventually changed to community-based charters. More branches and staff were added over time. Then, to reduce cost in the name of convenience, we added technology and other cheaper, less personal delivery channels. And, before we knew it, those originally strong partner relationships began to fade away in hopes of faster credit union growth. continue reading »last_img read more
