Minimal change in Antarctic Circumpolar Current flow speed between the last glacial and Holocene

Posted on by

first_imgThe Antarctic Circumpolar Current is key to the mixing and ventilation of the world’s oceans. This current flows from west to east between about 45° and 70°S connecting the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans, and is driven by westerly winds and buoyancy forcing. High levels of productivity in the current regulate atmospheric CO2 concentrations. Reconstructions of the current during the last glacial period suggest that flow speeds were faster or similar to present, and it is uncertain whether the strength and position of the westerly winds changed. Here we reconstruct Antarctic Circumpolar Current bottom speeds through the constricting Drake Passage and Scotia Sea during the Last Glacial Maximum and Holocene based on the mean grain size of sortable silt from a suite of sediment cores. We find essentially no change in bottom flow speeds through the region, and, given that the momentum imparted by winds, and modulated by sea-ice cover, is balanced by the interaction of these flows with the seabed, this argues against substantial changes in wind stress. However, glacial flow speeds in the sea-ice zone south of 56°S were significantly slower than present, whereas flow in the north was faster, but not significantly so. We suggest that slower flow over the rough topography south of 56°S may have reduced diapycnal mixing in this region during the last glacial period, possibly reducing the diapycnal contribution to the Southern Ocean overturning circulation.last_img read more

House sales fell across two thirds of England and Wales in 2018

first_imgHome » News » Housing Market » House sales fell across two thirds of England and Wales in 2018 previous nextHousing MarketHouse sales fell across two thirds of England and Wales in 2018Analysis by modular homes builder of Land Registry figures suggests UK is in grip of “endemic transaction crisis” despite the government’s Help to Buy scheme.Nigel Lewis4th January 201901,014 Views The number of house sales fell in two thirds of local authority areas within England and Wales last year and across the UK the number of houses sold dropped by 2.3%.These claims have been made following analysis of Land Registry data by modular homes firm Project Etopia. It says that sales rose in only 133 local authority areas and then only by 3.5% on average last year, compared to the year before.The areas worst hit by the slump in property sales and where reductions hit double-digit figures include Eastbourne, Bedford, Runnymede, Gosport, Brighton, Wellingborough and Merthyr Tydfil. The three hardest hit year-on-year last year were Cambridge (-16%), Newcastle-under-Lyme (-16.2%) and Stevenage (-27.5%).A total of 122 areas have seen transactions fall by more than 5%, while 41 local authorities saw sales drop by more than 10% and 11 areas by more than 15%.“It might not be immediately obvious what transaction levels have to do with the housing crisis, but the answer is a great deal,” says Joseph Daniels, CEO of Project Etopia (left).“Lack of housing stock means we’re on a merry-go-round of gyrating house prices in this country [and] this feeds into massive price gains that occur over just a few years, causing people to think of their house as an investment not a home.“When storm clouds gather on the horizon, they then guard their most valuable possession by sitting tight.“It’s easy to forget that there were 231,690 fewer homes sold in the last financial year than a decade earlier. If we had more stock, this boom and bust would be a thing of the past and the sands wouldn’t keep shifting under developers’ feet.”But it’s not all bad news; sales picked up dramatically in several areas including in Chorley, Hull and Lincoln, all of which experienced house sales rising by more than 10% year-on-year.     project etopia Runnymede Gosport Joseph Daniels house sales Bedford Brighton Eastbourne Wellingborough and Merthyr Tydfil January 4, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

The team was accommodated onboard the ship throughout the period and regularly conducted training serials to ensure they were kept at a high state of readiness if any pirate attack was made on the ship and its vital humanitarian aid cargo.Commenting on the medal parade, Commander Tafani stated:“By protecting this WFP ship, the Serbian protection team ensured that MV Caroline Scan remained safe from pirate attack. On numerous occasions their prompt and measured response prevented numerous dhows from getting too close, thus deterring possible attacks. Despite living in the most austere conditions and providing 24 hour cover, they remained positive and determined to succeed in their mission and showed the highest standards of professionalism that the Serbia Forces should be proud of.” Since the European Union Naval Force began providing protection to WFP ships, none have been attacked by pirates and over 880,000 metric tonnes of WFP food has been safely delivered to Somalia.[mappress]Press Release, March 6, 2014, 2014; Image: EU Navfor A recent Operation Atalanta medal parade held in Djibouti marked the end of the Serbian Autonomous Vessel Protection Detachments (AVPD) tenure with the EU Naval Force.

US Navy’s EASR radar tracks first targets

Posted on by

first_img Photo: Photo: Raytheon View post tag: EASR View post tag: Raytheon The Raytheon-developed SPY-6(V)2 Enterprise Air Surveillance Radar that will be deployed on US Navy aircraft carriers and amphibious warfare ships has been put to its first test.In a test conducted at the Surface Combat System Center at Wallops Island, the radar searched for, detected, identified and tracked numerous targets – including commercial aircraft, Raytheon said.In a second exercise, the maturity of EASR integration enabled the radar to track multiple targets continuously for several hours during a test event involving another system.EASR, the newest sensor in the Navy’s SPY-6 family of radars, provides simultaneous anti-air and anti-surface warfare, electronic protection and air traffic control capabilities.Two variants of EASR are being built: a single-face rotating array designated AN/SPY-6(V)2 for amphibious assault ships and Nimitz class carriers, and a three fixed-face array designated AN/SPY-6(V)3 for Ford class aircraft carriers and the future FFG(X) guided missile frigates.Both versions of EASR are built on scalable radar modular assembly, or RMA, technology. Each RMA is a self-contained radar in a 2′ x 2′ x 2′ box. These individual radars can integrate together to form arrays of various sizes to address any mission on any ship. EASR also adds air traffic control and weather capabilities to the mature SPY-6 software baseline.“Moving quickly from radar installation at Wallops Island to ‘tracks on glass’ in less than three months is a major accomplishment,” said US Navy Captain Jason Hall, Program Manager for Above Water Sensors, Program Executive Office Integrated Warfare Systems. “The EASR program is progressing extremely well. We are now one step closer to production and delivering the radar’s unmatched capability to the surface fleet.”Upon completion of system-level testing in Q4 2019, EASR will shift from the engineering and manufacturing development phase to the production phase.The 1st delivery of AN/SPY-6(V)2 will be to America-class amphibious assault ship USS Bougainville (LHA-8).

OHA To Join St. Vincent Medical Group

Posted on by

first_imgPartnership Will Create A Premier, Fully Integrated Cancer Program For Tri-state AreaSt. Vincent announced today that the physicians and staff of Oncology Hematology Associates (OHA) will join St. Vincent Medical Group, effective January 1, 2019.The clinical teams at St. Vincent Evansville and OHA have been working in partnership together in the care of oncology and hematology patients for several years, and believe this new partnership will only build on both outstanding oncology programs.For the past 25 years, OHA has committed to providing patient-centered, high quality, a coordinated treatment that promotes the dignity of the individual and their support system. OHA’s nine board-certified physicians specialize in the practice of medical oncology, hematology, and radiation oncology, and the practice’s state-of-the-art laboratory technology and provision of clinical research studies provide our community with access to breakthrough research and innovative treatment options.“The shared commitment of St. Vincent and OHA to excellence in cancer care and healing the body, mind, and spirit is a foundation for continuing to grow access to oncology services in the Tri-State,” said Dan Parod, President, St. Vincent Southwest Region.The cancer care program at St. Vincent Evansville has been accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer for nearly 50 years. On average, only one in four hospitals earn this prestigious accreditation, and since 1993 OHA has partnered with St. Vincent Evansville maintaining the high standard of care reflected in the accreditation.“Everyone at OHA partners with our patients as they go through one of the most difficult times in their life. Our goal is to always treat people as we would want to be treated,” said Dr. Edward Fox, President of OHA. “Both organizations share these same values and St. Vincent is committed to providing patients with the same high standard of practice. We are excited to continue our work together for the benefit of all those we serve,” added Dr. Fox.Patients of OHA will not experience any interference with their healthcare service because of this transition. Signage on the OHA property will officially change early next year. A blessing ceremony will also be held at that time.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Dell EMC VxRail Goes Beyond Exceptional

Posted on by

first_imgLast month IDC released a study, The Business Value of Dell EMC VxRail and VMware Cloud Foundation on Dell EMC VxRail¹, that shows how VxRail makes the exceptional expected.Since the launch of VxRail almost five years ago, Dell Technologies has relentlessly innovated the platform, rapidly releasing new functionality and platform enhancements, improving serviceability, and supporting new use cases to deliver the most value to you – whether in the core, at the edge, or in the cloud. Today, we’re introducing new VxRail updates that continue our commitment to bring the platform beyond exceptional.Growing possibilities with new VxRail hardware configurationsOne of the more astounding findings from the IDC study is that customers are able to increase the number of new application features by up to 73%.¹ Thousands of possible VxRail platform configurations and native VMware integration are key to enabling customers to continuously innovate at this level. In other words, VxRail can be configured for any workload while also providing a simplified and reliable operating environment, enabling organizations to spend less time managing infrastructure and more time focused on business initiatives.In June of last year, we added to our configuration possibilities with AMD EPYC processors on VxRail E Series – our low profile, cost-effective platform ideal for space-constrained locations. In our efforts to go beyond exceptional, we asked ourselves, why stop at the E Series? That’s why we are announcing an all new 2U platform, VxRail P675F and P675N, based on 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors offering additional choice and flexibility when selecting compute. VxRail P675F and P675N are part of the VxRail P Series, our most performance-intensive platform for business-critical workloads like SQL or Oracle database applications. Compared to the 1U E Series with AMD processors, the AMD 2U P Series has multiple, larger PSU options. This allows for a broader range of CPU offerings, larger memory configurations, and additional PCIe cards (NICs or FC HBAs).The P675F and P675N configurations also include additional graphic options with the NVIDIA Tesla T4 and NVIDIA Tesla V100S GPU. These GPUs provide enhanced performance for graphics intensive workloads like AI, data analytics, deep learning, and high-performance computing.Finally, we have further expanded use case possibilities with the introduction of the Intel x710 NIC Enhanced Network Stack (ENS) driver support. ENS is a networking stack mode that provides improved network operations by dynamically prioritizing network traffic to support demanding workloads that require higher levels of performance. Imagine a popular streaming service is set to debut the latest big blockbuster movie. Since opening day will likely strain networking resources, service providers will want to dynamically prioritize their network infrastructure for these eager viewers waiting to catch the first glimpse of the movie.Adding exceptional value with new VxRail HCI System SoftwareThe IDC study talks about how our customers have experienced 68% more efficient IT infrastructure teams, in part due to the extensive automation built into VxRail HCI System Software.¹ VxRail HCI System Software delivers extensive automation, orchestration and lifecycle management to streamline operations.VxRail continues to build on providing a seamless customer lifecycle management experience with the latest release of VxRail 7.0.130. With this release, we expand the LCM ecosystem to support the ENS drivers for the Intel x710 NIC. We also introduce a new health check feature that allows users to run the latest set of health checks so that you can to take advantage of improved and enhanced health checks as soon as they are available. You can run this outside of the upgrade window, so you’re ready when it’s time to upgrade. Together, these enhancements expand the automation of the LCM and simplify the planning and scheduling of upgrades.This release also includes a support procedure to expand a 2-node ROBO to a 3-or-more-node cluster. As more and more business happens at the edge, organizations need IT solutions with greater performance and more storage in order to meet the requirements of these data intensive applications. The ability to grow your ROBO VxRail clusters allows you to rapidly innovate to respond to changing IT initiatives and expand workload possibilities.What’s next?This year will bring a number of new, exciting announcements for VxRail that will further our commitment to go beyond exceptional. Is infinite exceptionalism a thing? We say, “Challenge accepted!”¹IDC Business Value White Paper, sponsored by Dell Technologies and Intel, “The Business Value of Dell EMC VxRail and VMware Cloud Foundation on Dell EMC VxRail,” December 2020. Actual results will vary.last_img read more

Mossey and Whatton are a traveling trainer team for Subaru and Leave No Trace, driving across the Eastern U.S., educating schools, camps, and the general public about Leave No Trace principles. They live year round in an Outback and spent 250 nights camping last year. “The best part of living in your car, is you have everything you need to adventure all the time,” says Mossey. “If we have a couple of hours of free time, and we’re in a spot with incredible climbing or trail running, we’re ready to go.” After a year on the road, Mossey and Whatton have dialed in their road trip gear and system. Here, they outline their favorite pieces of road trip gear.Taxa TigerMoth ($12,900)AM: We recently put a trailer on the Subaru.
