Ice-flow structure and ice-dynamic changes in the Weddell Sea sector of West Antarctica from radar-imaged internal layering

first_imgRecent studies have aroused concerns over the potential for ice draining the Weddell Sea sector of West Antarctica to figure more prominently in sea-level contributions should buttressing from the Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf diminish. To improve understanding of how ice-stream dynamics there evolved through the Holocene, we interrogate Radio-Echo Sounding (RES) data from across the catchments of Institute and Möller Ice Streams (IIS and MIS), focusing especially on the use of internal layering to investigate ice-flow change. As an important component of this work, we investigate the influence that the orientation of the RES acquisition-track with respect to ice flow exerts on internal layering, and find that this influence is minimal unless a RES flight track parallels ice flow. We also investigate potential changes to internal layering characteristics with depth to search for important temporal transitions in ice-flow regime. Our findings suggest that ice in northern IIS, draining the Ellsworth Subglacial Highlands, has retained its present ice-flow configuration throughout the Holocene. This contrasts with less topographically-constrained ice in southern IIS and much of MIS, whose internal layering evinces spatial changes to the configuration of ice flow over the past ~10,000 years. Our findings confirm Siegert et al.’s (2013) inference that fast flow was diverted from Bungenstock Ice Rise during the Late Holocene, and suggest that this may have represented just one component of wider regional changes to ice flow occurring across the IIS and MIS catchments as the West Antarctic Ice Sheet has thinned since the Last Glacial Maximum.last_img read more

Who Won The Election? It’s a Biden, Trump Stalemate for Now

first_imgIn Georgia, as Biden mentioned in his speech, Democrats are feeling bullish. Many more votes are yet to come in from the Atlanta area; in DeKalb County, for instance, one of the state’s largest, early in-person votes had not even begun to be counted until last night. In many of these still-uncalled states, Trump holds the lead in terms of ballots counted — but that could easily change as more mail-in ballots and some in-person votes continue to be tabulated.- Advertisement – But Democrats also picked up two Senate seats, in Colorado and Arizona, and close races remain uncalled in North Carolina, Georgia, Michigan and Maine — most of them potential Democratic pickups. The party’s path to a Senate majority may have narrowed somewhat, but the fate of the chamber, it’s safe to say, still hangs in the balance.Where we’re atBased on the states that have already been declared, Biden needs 43 more electoral votes to get to the golden number of 270, and Trump needs 57.The three Northern states that flipped for Trump in 2016 — Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania — remain uncalled. So do North Carolina and Georgia, both of which went for him in 2016 but have been heavily targeted by Democrats this cycle, and both of which are double-whammies: They have contested Senate races hitched to the presidential contest. Nov. 4, 2020, 6:08 a.m. ET “I’m here to tell you tonight, we believe we’re on track to win this election,” he said. “We knew because of the unprecedented early vote and the mail-in vote, it was going to take a while. We’re going to have to be patient until the hard work of tallying the votes is finished. And it ain’t over until every vote is counted, every ballot is counted.”Republicans yesterday did win closely contested Senate races in at least two states, Alabama and Iowa, and flipped at least six House seats, giving them a four-seat net gain in that chamber so far.- Advertisement – Updated – Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more

US seeks stockpile of safer smallpox vaccine

first_img Acambis and Bavarian Nordic said the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has requested proposals to supply the attenuated vaccine called modified vaccinia Ankara, or MVA. Both companies have developed versions of MVA. See also: Peter Wulff, president and CEO of Copenhagen-based Bavarian Nordic, said in a news release, “With this tender, the US government has committed itself to protect the 25% of the population who cannot safely be given current smallpox vaccines. The world market for a safe smallpox vaccine has now been opened, since governmental authorities in the larger European countries will naturally undertake a similar commitment as the American authorities.” Aug 16, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – The US government has called for proposals to supply up to 80 million doses of a weakened smallpox vaccine to protect people for whom the conventional vaccine is too risky, according to two vaccine manufacturers. The vaccine is intended for use in people who face an increased risk of serious reactions to the conventional vaccine, such as children, pregnant women, and people with immune system disorders or eczema. The federal government has stockpiled hundreds of millions of doses of the conventional vaccine over the past few years. The MVA contracts will be funded under Project Bioshield, a program enacted last year to support the development of medical defenses against biological, chemical, and radiological weapons, according to Marc Wolfson, spokesman for the HHS Office of Public Health Emergency Preparedness in Washington DC. Aug 16 Bavarian Nordic news releasehttp://www.bavarian-nordic.com/investor/announcements/2005-29.aspx http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/cidrap/content/bt/smallpox/news/safevax.html Federal officials have set a Sep 29 deadline for receiving company proposals and plan to award one or more contracts in February 2006, according to Acambis and Bavarian Nordic. CIDRAP News stories on previous MVA contracts awarded to Acambis and Bavarian Nordichttp://www.cidrap.umn.edu/cidrap/content/bt/smallpox/news/oct042004smallpox.html Acambis said it launched a phase 2 clinical trial of MVA3000 in 700 healthy adults last month. A phase 1 study yielded good results for safety and immunogenicity, with 97% of subjects who were vaccinated at the highest dose showing antibodies specific to the vaccinia virus, the company said. Existing smallpox vaccines are made with live vaccinia virus, which in rare cases can cause serious or life-threatening side effects such as a severe rash or encephalitis. MVA is a strain of vaccinia that cannot replicate inside human cells and cause a spreading infection, according to HHS. Wolfson said he couldn’t give an estimate of the cost of the MVA vaccine stockpile. But a Reuters report said investment analysts estimated that the full 80 million doses could be worth more than $1.2 billion. The earlier contracts required the companies to test the vaccines in animals, begin clinical trials, and develop plans for mass production. Acambis is collaborating with Baxter Healthcare to manufacture MVA3000. Editor’s note: This story was revised Aug 17 to add information on funding and a link to the government’s request for proposals to supply the vaccine. HHS wants to obtain 20 million doses of MVA within 2 years after awarding a contract and to have an option to buy another 60 million doses in the future, according to a news release from Acambis, based in the United Kingdom. The HHS is also calling for vaccine suppliers to conduct clinical trials and obtain a federal license for their vaccine. Both companies have been developing their versions of MVA under contracts awarded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in February 2003 and September 2004. Acambis’s vaccine is called MVA3000, and Bavarian Nordic’s is Imvamune.last_img read more

Burke hoping for Curragh rain

first_img The trainer is keen to send Odeliz across the Irish Sea for the Group Two contest over nine furlongs for which 20 fillies stood their ground at the confirmation stage. The Middleham handler believes the four-year-old has the ability to pick up a Group Two after she got within a length of Thistle Bird in the Princess Elizabeth Stakes at Epsom on her latest start. Roger Charlton’s mare went on to boost the form when winning the Group One Pretty Polly Stakes at the Curragh. Karl Burke has his fingers crossed the forecast showers fall on the Curragh ahead of the Kilboy Estate Stakes on Sunday. “We want to run, but we could do with some rain at the moment,” said Burke. “There are some heavy showers coming across. It’s just a question of if they hit the Curragh or not. Ideally, we wouldn’t want any firm in the going description. “She’s in great form. We are very happy with her. She’s come on again from Epsom. The form of that race has worked out really well. “Hopefully, she’s a Group-race winner waiting to happen.” The Sir Michael Stoute-trained Mango Diva, who was fifth in the Epsom Group Three contest last month, could renew rivalry, while a third English raider is Roger Varian’s Princess Loulou. Bracelet, winner of the Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot, is one of four possibles from Aidan O’Brien’s stable along with Palace, Peace Burg and Tapestry. John Oxx’s three-year-old My Titania, who was an encouraging fourth on her belated seasonal debut in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot, would be another leading home contender. Oxx has also left in Harasiya. Others in the mix include Dermot Weld’s pair of Afternoon Sunlight and Along Came Casey, David Wachman’s Lahinch Classics, Jim Bolger’s Tobann and Joe Murphy’s Euphrasia. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Senior named Forbes scholar for local activism

first_imgTo pursue her interest in journalism at USC, Bosch also worked as an assistant city editor and writer for the Daily Trojan, an executive television producer for Annenberg Media and an intern at CNBC over the last few years.  Zoe Ginsberg, a junior majoring in political science and journalism, said Bosch’s mentoring helped her grow as a journalist and become executive producer of “See It Live!” a show on Annenberg TV News.  In November 2017, Bosch and Becerra officially founded the University Park Action Coalition, a community-based organization that attempts to bridge the communication gap between the community, USC and the city of Los Angeles. Bosch spent months following hairdresser Aurora Becerra around the neighborhood to film a video for Intersections South L.A., a community reporting outlet under Annenberg Media.  “The primary, central goal is just to be a forum where the community can feel that they’re being heard,” Bosch said. “UPAC played a really important role in my love for grassroots community organizing and impact.”  Becerra eventually approached Bosch about creating an organization to help the community, leading Bosch to decide she would stop covering the issues and instead actively work to address them.  Senior Sofia Bosch founded the University Park Action Coalition, an organization based in Los Angeles that attempts to start conversations between various stakeholders from USC and from the University Park community.  (Krystal Gallegos | Daily Trojan) Correction: A previous version of this article stated that Under 30 scholars received complimentary lodging. Scholars do not receive free housing. The Daily Trojan regrets this error. “She’s fascinated by what’s going on in the world, to start with, particularly what’s going on in Latin America,” Starr said. “But she also has a very analytical mind which does lend itself to being a good journalist. It lends itself to somebody who can really understand and analyze international affairs and what’s going on in both international and domestic politics.”  “I hope to walk away [from the summit] with some contacts — a network of people that are big, young industry leaders,” Bosch said. “At the root of anything, whether that be law, policy or business … is people.”  “I’m just excited to be there and to have the opportunity to be curious and to just talk to people and understand how they got to where they are,” Bosch said. “I’m going, more than anything else, to learn and to be open to other points of view and different  perspectives.” Bosch became interested in international relations, one of her minors because of her frequent moves while growing up. She’s lived in five countries, including the United States, Mexico, Japan, Italy and Spain, thanks to her father’s career in international business. After a Maymester course in which Bosch produced fieldwork in Mexico about finance development, her professor of international relations Pamela Starr suggested that Bosch take on the minor. center_img In addition to her involvement in UPAC, Bosch also volunteers for the Esperanza Immigrant Rights Project and is a mentor for Troy Camp. When senior Sofia Bosch told a local stylist while getting a haircut that she was majoring in journalism, the woman burst into tears and told her about issues in the community that had gone uncovered by news outlets.  “[Troy Camp is] what helped me realize that my interests specifically lie in universal access to education under the umbrella of human rights,” Bosch said. “The girls that I met [as a cabin leader] made Los Angeles feel like home.” Thanks to her leadership in the organization, Bosch was selected to attend the Forbes Under 30 Summit at the end of the month, where she’ll meet 1,000 other students from across the country. “She pulls me aside, starts crying and was like, ‘I have been in this community for so long, and nobody cares,’” Bosch said. “‘The University keeps expanding; I feel very helpless. Nobody is helping the community, the people who’ve lived here forever can’t live here anymore because it’s too expensive, and they’re being bullied out of their neighborhood by private developers.’”  “More than anything else, I was really surprised and shocked. Forbes is very business and tech-focused, so most of the people that get Forbes Under 30 are from that world,” Bosch said. “I’m excited for the conference because there will be a lot of people with backgrounds similar to mine and a lot of people who are nothing like me.”  “I was a really nervous, anxious freshman who didn’t have a voice yet,” Ginsberg said. “But [Bosch] really took me under her wing; I would not be where I am without her. She gave me that stepping stone that I think everyone needs. If anything, she gave me the confidence to put myself out there in a really scary environment.”  “I think one of the beautiful things about journalism [is that] you really learn how to ask the right questions,” Bosch said. “I think journalism has given me a lot of confidence. Even if I’m not the smartest person in the room, [I] can gauge the situation and be perceptive of how to tell a story about whatever it is or to understand whatever the concept or topic is.”  Forbes will give the Under 30 Scholars the opportunity to meet with recruiters from American companies. At least three other students from USC, junior business administration major Diego Garza Gonzalez, sophomore business administration major Krish Abrol and junior communication and philosophy, politics and law major Manda Bwerevu, will also attend the summit.  Bosch recently applied to the Fulbright Program in hopes of conducting research after graduation on the aid provided to Venezuelan migrants in Colombia. After graduate school, she hopes to work in international human rights policy and law for the United Nations or the European Union. last_img read more

Alex Wood calls velocity drop a midseason ‘hurdle’ after 7-4 win over Braves

first_imgATLANTA >> There is nothing to worry about in the standings, so the Dodgers will have to create their own concerns over the next two months.The slightly diminished velocity and admitted fatigue Alex Wood felt Thursday night will have to do for now. Wood did just fine with what he had, holding the Atlanta Braves to one run over six innings as the Dodgers won, 7-4. But Dodgers manager Dave Roberts acknowledged there will be a conversation with Wood about what he is feeling.“I wouldn’t say concern. But I would say it’s something that Honey (pitching coach Rick Honeycutt) and myself will discuss with Alex just to make sure he feels strong and feels good,” Roberts said. “I don’t think it’s a health thing. But just as we do with all of our pitchers, we’ll try to stay ahead of things. “I’m really proud of this one tonight,” Wood said. “I battled and made some pitches when I needed to. That pickoff helped a lot too.”That pickoff was a “game-changer,” Wood said.With the Dodgers leading 3-1 in the fifth inning, the left-hander loaded the bases on two walks and a single – then unloaded them by picking the runner off second and getting Brandon Phillips to bounce into a double play.“That was the play of the game right there,” Roberts said. “There was a lot of stress, bases loaded with no outs.”Chris Taylor and Corey Seager did what they could to minimize the stress. They had three hits each, including a two-run home run by Taylor, his 13th of the season. The multi-hit game was Taylor’s 10th in 18 games since the All-Star break. He is batting .405 (30 for 74) during that stretch with 14 extra-base hits, 14 runs scored and 13 driven in, another spike in a breathtaking breakout season.“There’s a confidence there. He’s had success and he’s sustained it,” Roberts said. “He went through a tough stretch there about a month ago, rebounded to get some hits and be productive. So right now there’s obviously a lot of confidence and he just finds a way to compete every at-bat.”Sean Newcomb was the other driving force behind the Dodgers’ offense. The Angels’ first-round draft pick in 2014 is struggling through his rookie season with the Braves. He walked seven – including Logan Forsythe with the bases loaded in the third inning – threw two wild pitches and needed 110 to get through 4 2/3 innings. “What he’s done the last couple years as far as workload, we definitely need to be mindful of this.”Wood pitched just 60 1/3 innings last season when an elbow injury required midseason surgery and cost him his spot in the Dodgers’ starting rotation. What he’s feeling now is fairly typical midseason fatigue compounded by the challenges of coast-to-coast travel with its disruption of sleep patterns, he said.“I feel like every starter has that point in the season where you have that little hurdle you have to get over. That’s where I feel like I’m at,” said Wood, who topped 170 innings in each of the two seasons before last year’s surgery. “I still feel like the quality of my stuff was there. It just wasn’t as consistent.“Most guys will tell you there’s usually a point in the season – whether it’s midway or three-fourths of the way, whatever it may be – where you start to feel a little fatigue. You just have to make the adjustments to get over that hurdle.”Roughed up for 15 runs in two previous starts against his former team, Wood avoided damage this time despite allowing hits in every inning. The Braves went 1 for 7 with runners in scoring position and their only run off Wood came in the first inning when Tyler Flowers’ two-out drive to left-center field scooted past center fielder Kike’ Hernandez all the way to the wall for an RBI double.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
