Magnetic local time‐resolved examination of radiation belt dynamics during high speed solar wind speedtTriggered substorm clusters

first_imgParticle observations from low Earth orbiting satellites are used to undertake superposed epoch analysis around clusters of substorms, in order to investigate radiation belt dynamical responses to mild geomagnetic disturbances. Medium energy electrons and protons have drift periods long enough to discriminate between processes occurring at different MLT, such as magnetopause shadowing, plasma wave activity, and substorm injections. Analysis shows that magnetopause shadowing produces clear loss in proton and electron populations over a wide range of L‐shells, initially on the dayside, which interact with nightside substorm‐generated flux enhancements following charge‐dependent drift directions. Inner magnetospheric injections recently identified as an important source of 10’s to 100’s keV electrons at low L (L<3), occurring during similar solar wind‐driving conditions as recurrent substorms, show similar but more enhanced geomagnetic AU‐index signatures. Two‐fold increases in substorm occurrence at the time of the sudden particle enhancements at low L shells (SPELLS), suggests a common linkage.last_img read more

Rightmove posts record traffic

first_imgHome » News » Marketing » Rightmove posts record traffic Rightmove posts record traffic10th February 20160515 Views Rightmove delivered more leads than ever before on the back of record online traffic in January, the company has revealed.More than 127 million people visited Rightmove last month, up almost 20 per cent compared to the corresponding month last year, and surpassing the previous record of 118 million set last August.The sharp increase in visits helped to ensure that email and phone enquiries to agents and developers hit a new record of over 4.9 million, up 15 per cent year-on-year.The latest data also confirms what many of us already know. We are a nation obsessed with property. Collectively people spent the equivalent of over 2,000 years browsing Rightmove in January, with the number of page views for the month hitting a new record of 1.7 billion.The most popular places people looked for a new home after London was Bristol, Cambridge and Milton Keynes.Miles Shipside (left), Rightmove Director, said, “These January statistics should give both sales and lettings agents confidence that an active year with plenty of business opportunities lies ahead. While January is usually a very busy month for home-hunting, the scale of these records shows just how habitual Rightmove has become when people are starting their property search. As Rightmove is the only place where people can search over one million properties for sale and to rent, it’s clear that buyers, renters, sellers and landlords are all using us to search the whole market.“The busiest ever start to the year gives a very confident outlook for the coming months, with some of the surge possibly coming from investors looking to make last minute deals before the changes to stamp duty come in on 1st April, as well as first-time buyers looking to see if any of the schemes could help them get a foot on the property ladder.”Rightmove was not the only property portal to record a good month for traffic and leads.OnTheMarket.com celebrated its first anniversary by reporting that the level of traffic to its website last month reached over 6million for the first time, with a record number of leads provided to agents.Ian Springett (right), Chief Executive of OnTheMarket.com, said, “January proved to be a fantastic month for OnTheMarket.com in many ways.“The website marked its first birthday in style, smashing its previous record of monthly traffic of 5.7million visits – achieved in October.“More property-seekers also used the newly updated apps than ever before.“Many people said OnTheMarket.com would not reach its first birthday but instead it has proved that it is thriving and is continuing to grow in every way and we look forward to welcoming more and more agents throughout 2016.”OnTheMarket.com Rightmove OTM record traffic 2016-02-10The Negotiator Related articles “Millions have been thrown against the top portals for years with no effect”30th April 2021 Rightmove property listing lands estate agency in NIMBY hot water29th April 2021 OTM or Boomin?

Cargill takes stabilised approach to icings

first_imgCargill has introduced two new stabiliser ranges, said to give manufacturers increased flexibility in the production of icings.Satialgine OGI cold soluble alginate has been developed for direct-use icings, made on-site by bakers and deposited immediately on top of baked goods. For delayed-use icings, a new pectin – Unipectine PG 335 CS stabiliser – has been developed for when icings are produced off-site. It takes the form of pre-prepared icings, and is added to the baked good cold or after reheating. Cargill’s existing range of Lygomme OGI functional systems includes different formulations that, depending on the process, can be used for either direct-use or delayed-use icings.[http://www.cargilltexturizing.com]last_img

Amazon to sponsor Great British Bake Off

first_imgAmazon has secured headline sponsorship on The Great British Bake Off’s upcoming second season.Amazon’s biggest UK television purchase yet, the deal is reported to be worth around £5m, according to The Guardian, casting GBBO as one of the most valuable entertainment sponsorships in the UK – in the league of The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent. It will take the opportunity to promote its Echo speakers and Alexa voice assistant within the show’s advertisement breaks.GBBO attracted the largest audience among 16- to 34-year-olds of any TV show in the UK last year – one of the retailer’s biggest consumer groups – with the finale reaching 11 million viewers.The sponsorship arrangement includes spin-off programming Bake Off: An Extra Slice, festive episodes, and Bake Off: The Professionals. Channel 4 paid £75m last year to poach the show from the BBC, restarting the series after it had run for seven seasons on the Beeb.Initially, Channel 4 struggled to generate advertiser interest, and ended up splitting its headline sponsorship package between baking brands Dr Oetker and Lyle’s golden syrup, which paid £2m each.The GBBO deal comes as Amazon’s rival Netflix has snapped up the first seven series of the show, making the early seasons available on its service in time for Easter.The second Channel 4 series will be screened later this year. The show’s judges, Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood, will return alongside hosts Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig.last_img read more

Tedeschi Trucks Band Concludes Three Nights In Chicago [Full Audio]

first_imgTedeschi Trucks Band wrapped up their three-night run at the Chicago Theatre in Chicago, IL last night, delivering yet-another stand-out show to a capacity crowd. The evening was billed as “An Evening With Tedeschi Trucks Band“, meaning they delivered two full sets of music without any opening support.With two sets on the table, the group had the opportunity to dive deep into their catalog of originals and covers, while always keeping it close to home. The first set opened with “Don’t Let Me Slide” by the Derek Trucks Band, leading into “Anyday” by Derek and the Dominos, which included an anthemic “Blue Sky” tease by the Allman Brothers Band. The first set was further highlighted by a newly-introduced cover of Susan Tedeschi‘s 2008 “Butterfly”. The set closed with a raucous “Do I Look Worried” into “I Want More” into Santana‘s “Soul Sacrifice” jam to complete the first portion of the evening.Set two opened with another new cover of “Love Having You Around” by Stevie Wonder, which the 12-piece debuted at their own Sunshine Music Festival in Boca Raton earlier this month. The second set was mostly made up of career-spanning originals, including their new song “Shame” which is expected to appear on their fifth studio effort. The second set closed with a huge “The Storm” jam that led into a barn-burning “Whipping Post” by the Allman Brothers Band.For the encore, Tedeschi Trucks Band returned to the stage with “A Song For You” by Leon Russell and “Bound For Glory”.Listen to the full audio below, courtesy of Detroit Lightning:Setlist: Tedeschi Trucks Band | Chicago Theatre | Chicago, IL | 1/27/18I: Don’t Let Me Slide (Derek Trucks Band), Anyday (Derek and the Dominos)–blue sky tease, Shelter, Butterfly (Susan Tedeschi), Don’t Miss Me (Derek Trucks Band), Midnight In Harlem, Do I Look Worried > I Want More > Soul Sacrifice (Santana)II: Love Having You Around (Stevie Wonder), Don’t Drift Away, Made Up Mind, Right On Time, Laugh About It, Shame, I Pity The Fool (Bobby “Blue” Bland), The Storm, Whipping Post (Allman Brothers Band)E: A Song For You (Leon Russell), Bound For Glory[photo: TTB Facebook]Tedeschi Trucks Band have a full winter tour ahead of them, with multi-night runs in Washington DC, Red Bank, Nashville, and more.

Blazing New Trails: Transforming Former Coal Mines into Outdoor Oases

first_imgKyle Hill could look at any number of things at the former surface mine on Dale Ridge: the scrubby hillside, the retention ponds built to catch runoff, the crumbling highwall sending truck-sized boulders careening to the mine floor. Instead, when he visits this site in Virginia’s Wise County, Hill sees opportunity—and ducks.“See down there?” Hill asks, aiming his binoculars at a clump of cattails framing a nearby wetland. “That place was just full of ducks last week.”An avid outdoorsman, Hill is a native of Coeburn, a town built around the coal industry in this corner of southwest Virginia. As a student at the University of Virginia’s College at Wise, Hill has been taking a different look at the many former surface mines that dot the central Appalachian landscape, wondering how they can support populations of game species like waterfowl.While using old mines as a catalyst for wildlife conservation might seem odd, Hill’s approach isn’t happening in a vacuum. A host of efforts is taking a renewed look at former minelands as a linchpin in diversifying Appalachia’s outdoor economy.As many as 1,800 square miles of central Appalachia have been touched by surface mining, a practice where coal is reached by removing the rocks above it rather than using a shaft to reach it underground. This approach has far-reaching impacts, including leaching metal-laden runoff into waterways and eradicating headwater streams and forests. A 2016 study by researchers at Duke University even found that surface mining has altered Appalachian topography, dropping the average slope of mined areas in the mountains by forty percent.While the environmental and social concerns of mining have been well-advertised, surface mines can become forgotten by the public eye once coal extraction has ceased. “The environmental community has done a really good job of communicating how destructive mining is—and for good reason, I think,” says Adam Wells, new economy program manager for Appalachian Voices. “However, it’s not that cut and dry.”Wells stresses that the coal economy’s collapse has opened the door to novel discussions about economic alternatives, including those based around former mines. New funding opportunities have also become available for developing abandoned mineland (AML) features, closed before the passage of the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977. “That funding could really serve as a catalyst to get some innovative economic development projects going that right now are just good ideas,” Wells says.In 2016, Appalachian Voices and partners released a report identifying 14 AML sites in southwest Virginia that could support projects from solar farms to community parks and trail systems. Their work marks a shift in our collective philosophy of how to deal with former mines, viewing them as less of a permanent liability and more as an opportunity for growth.One of the sites identified in Appalachian Voices’ report is the Norton Riverwalk, a planned trail along the Guest River that will link downtown Norton, Va. to neighborhoods on the city’s eastern end. The project would rehabilitate a decommissioned coal loading site and connect it to a popular multiuse path running along a former mine highwall, which was transformed into a gateway for the city in 2014.Norton’s City Manager, Fred Ramey, believes that the Riverwalk is “perfect” for creating dual environmental and community benefits. “It’s a win-win scenario that will remediate environmental concerns, transform portions of the area into outdoor classrooms, and provide more recreational opportunities,” Ramey says.Nearby, the town of Haysi, Va., is creating a multiuse trail to connect its downtown to Breaks Interstate Park. A nearby coal waste site presents the opportunity for creating a park that would include a put-in for boaters on the Russell Fork.The town of St. Paul, Va.—which hosts a 100-mile trail system built partially on a former surface mine that caters to both ATVs and non-motorized users—has become a model for revitalizing coal economies. Private investment poured into town following the trail system’s 2013 opening, with new businesses catering to visitors and a $7.3 million project renovating a downtown building into a boutique hotel that will open this year.Redeveloping former mines is slow work, and each site comes with a unique set of complex—and expensive—environmental issues. “It’s not hard to look at a reclaimed mountaintop removal site and envision a field of solar panels,” Wells says, “but it’s a little trickier to think about smaller-scale ways to turn these liabilities into assets.” Regardless, a former mine can still hold surprises.Earlier this year, I accompanied Kyle Hill to the mine on Dale Ridge. We arrived just in time to flush a pair of wood ducks that had arrived for the season in one of the mine’s settling ponds. Hill has inventoried almost 15 waterfowl species there this year, including several not previously recorded in this corner of the state.It can be daunting to imagine the site being a haven for birdwatchers or outdoor enthusiasts, but as we stood in the middle of the mine, the ducks caught our eye. Instead of leaving, they flew in a long arc around the fringes of the mine and settled back in the pond once we’d moved on. For them, this was already home.last_img read more

Union College rude over request for photo

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionMy wife recently inquired from Union College whether it would be OK for our family to use their beautiful campus as a backdrop for a family photo session on Nov. 19. My wife called security and two individuals assured her that it shouldn’t be a problem, but one of them gave her the contact information of an individual to contact to be sure.This individual rudely told my wife that the policy is to request and submit a permit application with a $35 fee to do this. This is absurd, and on principle I refuse to pay this, especially in the demeaning way it was demanded, rather than requested in a nice manner. My family and I have always supported this school, certainly financially, since my son is an alumni — his degree had cost plenty.I know of several people who have used the Nott Memorial and Jackson Gardens and other scenic photo spots on this historic campus as photo backdrops. To my knowledge, they did this without even extending the courtesy that my wife did — without issue or permits. Recently, my wife and I walked the campus to select our favorite spots. We saw security twice, we were taking pictures, all we got was a friendly wave from the security guard.I just hope that this so-called policy, and more importantly, the rude behavior of this individual, is not what Union College has become. We will not use their beautiful grounds for our photo day, nor will we ever financially support this college.Bob VielkindScotiaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homeslast_img read more
