BBC News: Lords Reform  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

On January 19, 1999, Tony Blair's government announced the most radical restructuring of the House of Lords, the UK's second chamber, in its 600-year existence. Honoring the Labour Party election manifesto, the Bill will remove all 759 hereditary peers, those with an automatic right to sit by virtue of birthright, within the year. In the meantime, a Royal Commission will formulate proposals for a new upper house and issue a report by December 31, 1999. A fully reformed chamber is expected to be in place by 2002, and in the meantime, publicly nominated "People's Peers" may sit in the Lords in addition to the politically appointed Life Peers. The BBC Special Report outlines this momentous constitutional change in Britain, and offers analysis, commentary, and the latest news.

The scientific potential of this new technology is estimated for a reasonable configuration of experiment by analytic modeling. It is shown that such radio wave experiment can be competitive with modern projects in this field. The simplest technically realizable architecture for the first generation of the LORD instrument, disposed on a standard lunar space platform designed by Lavochkin association, is elaborated. A Monte Carlo simulation is performed, including effects associated with the finite depth of the regolith layer. The signature of the cascade signal is different from the background, and discrimination between CR and neutrino cascades might be possible.

Law Lords Decision in Pinochet Case  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

On Wednesday, the UK's highest court refused to grant General Pinochet immunity from prosecution for the second time. The court ruled six-to-one that he could face extradition to Spain where he would be charged with torture, conspiracy to torture, and conspiracy to murder. Pinochet was originally arrested in October on an extradition warrant from Spain, and the following month, the Law Lords ruled that he was not immune to prosecution for acts committed as a head of state. However, for the first time in British legal history, that decision was set aside after conflict of interest charges were levelled against one of the Lords who was connected to Amnesty International. Despite this second ruling, the case is far from settled, as the extradition proceedings themselves remain, and it is expected that Pinochet's lawyers will drag the case out for months, or even years if possible. In the meantime, the former dictator remains under house arrest in England. Users can read the full text of the Law Lords' lengthy decision at this site, provided by the UK Stationery Office.

Ozone profiles above Palmer Station, Antarctica  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center/Wallops Flight Facility conducted a series of 52 balloon-borne measurements of vertical ozone profiles over the National Science Foundation (NSF) research facility at Palmer Station, Antarctica (64 deg 46 S, 64 deg 3 W) between August 9 and October 24, 1987. High resolution measurements were made from ground level to an average of 10 mb. While much variation was seen in the profile amounts of ozone, it is clear that a progressive depletion of ozone occurred during the measurement period, with maximum depletion taking place in the 17 to 19 km altitude region. Ozone partial pressures dropped by about 95 percent in this region. Shown here are plotted time dependences of ozone amounts observed at 17 km and at arbitrarily selected altitudes below (13 km) and above (24 km) the region of maximum depletion. Ozone partial pressure at 17 km is about 150nb in early August, and has decreased to less than 10nb in the minimums in October. The loss rate is of the order of 1.5 percent/day. In summary, a progressive depletion in stratospheric ozone over Palmer Station was observed from August to October, 1987. Maximum depletion occurred in the 17 to 19 km range, and amounted to 95 percent. Total ozone overburden decreased by up to 50 percent during the same period.

SciTech Connect

This paper describes Hydrogen peroxide research from the Palmer long-term ecological research program in the Antarctic. In this particular study the hypothesis that UV radiation might play a role in microheterotrophic microbial processes by direct interactions with dissolved organic matter (DOM) is examined. Two independent pathways are proposed: partial photolytic degradation or alteration of refractory DOM resulting in a supply of readily available organic substrates for bacterial metabolism; and complete photolytic degradation of DOM. The study documents important photochemical-DOM reactions in the coastal habitats of the Antarctic Peninsula. 8 refs., 2 figs.

This paper discusses research on the sources and sinks of hydrogen peroxide in a variety of antarctic coastal habitats. The potential source terms we evaluated were wet deposition (snow) glacial ice meltwater and land runoff, and in situ biological processes. The primary hydrogen peroxide sink investigated was bacterial enzymatic activity. From initial investigations, it appears that both biological and photochemical sources and microbiological sinks of hydrogen peroxide must be consider in studies of southern ocean hydrogen peroxide dynamics. 7 refs., 2 figs.

Palmer LTER: Hydrogen peroxide in the Palmer LTER region. I. An introduction  

SciTech Connect

The Palmer long-term ecological research (LTER) program is an coordinated multi-investigator and interdisciplinary study of an ice-dominated, high-latitude marine ecosystem. The study of hydrogen peroxide dynamics in this habitat was inspired by two ecological applications: it has been suggested that hydrogen peroxide concentrations can be used as a tracer for vertical advection in surface ocean waters. To the extent that vertical mixing is a critical variable in determining the production of southern oceans ecosystems, this information is fundamental. In addition, because hydrogen peroxide is a common intermediate of photochemical reactions of oxygen with organic compounds, it may provide a convenient analytical procedure for assessing photolytic alteration of dissolved organic matter (DOM) in sea water. Recent studies suggest that photochemical processes may play a previous unrecognized role in the global carbon cycle. These studies focus on evaluating the magnitude of these potential photochemical processes in considering the biological cycling of DOM. 21 refs.

The Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI) has been used for more than 30 years to quantify the long-term drought conditions for a given location and time. However, a common critique of the PDSI is that the behavior of the index at various locations is inconsistent, making spatial comparisons of PDSI values difficult, if not meaningless.A self-calibrating Palmer Drought Severity Index (SC-PDSI) is presented and evaluated. The SC-PDSI automatically calibrates the behavior of the index at any location by replacing empirical constants in the index computation with dynamically calculated values. An evaluation of the SC-PDSI at 761 sites within Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota, as well as at all 344 climate divisions shows that it is more spatially comparable than the PDSI, and reports extreme wet and dry conditions with frequencies that would be expected for rare conditions.

A Pleistocene Clone of Palmer's Oak Persisting in Southern California  

PubMed Central

Background The distribution of Palmer's oak (Quercus palmeri Engelm.) includes numerous isolated populations that are presumably relicts of a formerly larger range that has contracted due to spreading aridity following the end of the Pleistocene. Principal Findings We investigated a recently discovered disjunct population of Palmer's oak in the Jurupa Mountains of Riverside County, California. Patterns of allozyme polymorphism, morphological homogeneity, widespread fruit abortion, and evidence of fire resprouting all strongly support the hypothesis that the population is a single clone. The size of the clone and estimates of annual growth from multiple populations lead us to conclude that the clone is in excess of 13,000 years old. Conclusions The ancient age of the clone implies it originated during the Pleistocene and is a relict of a vanished vegetation community. Range contraction after climate change best explains the modern disjunct distribution of Q. palmeri and perhaps other plants in California. PMID:20041136

Paleomagnetic Perspectives: Contributions of H.C. Palmer  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

With a broad background in petrology, structure, and tectonics, H.C. Palmer undertook a new career path in paleomagnetism in 1964 under a Canada Council post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Western Ontario. Like many paleomagnetists of that time, he became largely self-taught as he explored paleomagnetic methods and rock magnetism. His research, although primarily focused on Canadian Precambrian themes such as dike swarms, Grenville deformation, and Logan's loop, encompassed also studies in the U.S., Europe, South America, and Australia. Among his earliest studies was the first paleomagnetic investigation of Warren Carey's Bolivian orocline, preceding dozens of subsequent investigations by other workers. Palmer's research objectives on a broad scale incorporated paleomagnetic evidence into major tectonic events, especially those involving terrane accretion in the Canadian Cordillera and Canadian shield. He was also attentive to the important minutiae of mineralogical transformations and associated effects on magnetizations which influence tectonic interpretations, as well as to the importance of age relationships and correlations for correct paleomagnetic interpretations. He worked with a wide variety of mainly igneous rocks, of many tectonic and structural settings, ranging from silicic ashflows to ultramafic intrusions. This paper highlights selected contributions of Palmer's wide-ranging career to the fields of paleomagnetism and rock magnetism.

New geophysical models of Palmer Deep crustal structure  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The 2004 (9th) and 2006 (11th) Ukrainian Antarctic expeditions acquired new geoelectrical data (‘short-impulse electromagnetic field formation' - FSPEF, and ‘vertical electric-resonance sounding' - VERS) along profiles across Drake Passage and along Bransfield Strait, Antarctic Peninsula, with the aim of studying the crustal structure of these features down to depths of >30 km. The sounding on this depth in Antarctic region was the first experience of deep modification of the VERS method using. Modelling experience of deep crustal structure by geophysical data with VERS method shows that there is a possibility to investigate the fluid regime, tectonic disturbances and crush zones in basement and local places of submarine volcanic activity too. This technology also gives a possibility to efficiently divide the cross-section on separate stratigraphic subsections in the sounding site and to determine its depth with high accuracy (Levashov et al., 2003; Levashov et al., 2007). Geophysical surveys enabled to yield new data set with information about Drake Passage and Palmer Deep inner crustal structure on broad continental margin of Antarctic Peninsula. Palmer Deep is located on continental (Pacific) shelf of the Antarctic Peninsula near Anvers Island and consists of three deep basins with depths from 1200? to 1500?. These basins were part of glacial outlet during glaciation's period (Rebesco et al., 1998). Geoelectrical models of Palmer Deep crustal structure along three profiles were built on the sounding data in separate points of continental shelf. Heterogeneity of Palmer Deep earth's crust obtained from VERS data modelling testified to processes of tectonic transformations of internal shelf structures. Tectonic factor explains some conformities of the most recent glaciomarine sediments and glacial streams forming during recent shelf-wide glaciations. New information about sediment distribution and inner crustal structure has an important value for searching and prospecting the hydrocarbon deposits of Palmer Deep region. These geophysical data are of particular importance for understanding of evolution and geodynamic processes at continental margin of Antarctic Peninsula. References 1.

New variants of the Palmer drought scheme capable of integrated utility  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Palmer drought model that was developed half a century ago has often been used for monitoring and decision making. It has gained wide-spread familiarity and acceptance, together with numerous complaints, criticisms and improvements. This study first introduces a recent variation of Palmer's model, i.e. the standardized Palmer drought index (SPDI) as a hybrid of a Palmer drought index (PI) and a standardized drought index (SI). Then, a more complicated methodology is employed to propose an SPDI-based joint drought index (SPDI-JDI), which is also physically based on the Palmer drought model and is a multivariate SI in nature. Using meteorological observations from twelve WMO gauges from all around the globe, empirical and parametric copula-based approaches are adopted and compared for the construction of SPDI-JDI. The findings in this study indicate that the SPDI-JDI derived from parametric copulas can provide an overall measure of the joint probability-based drought status by combining the probabilistic properties and dependence structure of multi-temporal scale marginals of SPDI. Meanwhile, the SPDI-JDI shows high coherence and correlation with individual PIs and performs well in drought detection when compared to the integration of Palmer drought severity index, Palmer modified drought index, Palmer hydrologic drought index and Palmer Z index as well as to the U.S. Drought Monitor observations. Taken together, new variations of the SPDI-JDI and/or SPDI are expected to bring new vigor and vitality into Palmer's drought model, making it more up-to-date for drought monitoring and prediction.

Applying the Palmer Drought Severity Index to regional climate models  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Drought is one of the climate states that are most difficult to analyse scientifically. Amongst other things it depends on (lack of) precipitation, evapotranspiration, and water holding capacity of the soil at a given place, and how the two first parameters vary with time. One of the most used parameters to evaluate the occurrence and severity of drought is the Palmer Drought Severity Index. We have calculated the Self-Calibrated Palmer Drought Severity Index (SC-PDSI) of the output of some of the regional climate models included in the Ensembles data base covering the area of Europe, in the case where the climate models are forced by the real weather in the period 1960 to 2000. The climate models provide precipitation data as well as the data needed to calculate the potential evapotranspiration in an unbroken time series on a regular grid in the area covered by the regional climate model. To calculate the evapotranspiration we use the Penman-Monteith equation following the guidelines of FAO of the United Nations. The regularity of the output of the climate models makes the output ideal for determining the time-varying SC-PDSI over the entire model area and the entire period. We have compared the simulations of the occurrence of meteorological drought made by the SC-PDSI with independent data of hydrological drought, which has become available with the drought analyses, that has been made as part of the WATCH project. This allows us to evaluate if the predictions of the SC-PDSI are coherent with some of the direct observations of drought, and thus if the SC-PDSI calculated from climate model data gives a good representation of the real occurrence of droughts.

Chemical composition of fresh snowfalls at Palmer Station, Antarctica  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A first time investigation was performed to establish a chemical baseline for snowfall at Palmer Station Antarctica (64°46'S, 64°05'W) since there was no such record. A chemical baseline for snow could be use to validate climate change studies based on ice core analyses. The snow samples contained (from high to low mass concentration) total organic carbon, chloride, inorganic carbon, sodium, sulfate, magnesium, calcium, potassium, fluoride, ammonium, and nitrate, excluding hydrogen and hydroxide. The pH of these samples ranged between 4.0-6.2. The relatively low nitrate and relatively high sulfate concentrations found in our samples are consistent with the results of other studies for this region of Antarctica. The ions and pH do not appear to favor a particular wind direction during this period. The total deposition of sulfate and flouride via snowfall between 10 January and 10 February is conservatively estimated to be 4.78 and 1.3 kg km -2, respectively.

Speciation with gene flow on Lord Howe Island  

PubMed Central

Understanding the processes underlying the origin of species is a fundamental goal of biology. It is widely accepted that speciation requires an interruption of gene flow between populations: ongoing gene exchange is considered a major hindrance to population divergence and, ultimately, to the evolution of new species. Where a geographic barrier to reproductive isolation is lacking, a biological mechanism for speciation is required to counterbalance the homogenizing effect of gene flow. Speciation with initially strong gene flow is thought to be extremely rare, and few convincing empirical examples have been published. However, using phylogenetic, karyological, and ecological data for the flora of a minute oceanic island (Lord Howe Island, LHI), we demonstrate that speciation with gene flow may, in fact, be frequent in some instances and could account for one in five of the endemic plant species of LHI. We present 11 potential instances of species divergence with gene flow, including an in situ radiation of five species of Coprosma (Rubiaceae, the coffee family). These results, together with the speciation of Howea palms on LHI, challenge current views on the origin of species diversity. PMID:21730151

A global dataset of self-calibrating Palmer Drought Severity Index dataset  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Global maps of monthly self-calibrating Palmer Drought Severity Index (scPDSI) have been calculated for the period 1901-2009 with a spatial resolution of 0.5"× 0.5". The scPDSI is a convenient means of describing the spatial and temporal variability of moisture availability and is based on the more common Palmer Drought Severity Index. The scPDSI improves upon the Palmer Drought Severity Index by maintaining a consistent behaviour of the index over diverse climatological regions. This makes spatial comparisons of scPDSI values on continental scales more meaningful. Potential evapotranspiration (PET) is one of the inputs to the Palmer Drought Severity Index. This scPDSI dataset uses the realistic Penman-Monteith estimate for PET rather than the commonly used Thornthwaite method. In this presentation, the impact of using either one of these PET-estimates in calculated actual evapotranspiration and in the scPDSI values is assessed. The traditional Palmer Drought Severity Index assumes all precipitation to be in the liquid phase. To represent the impact of seasonal snow cover on the water budget, a simple snow accumulation and snow melt model is added to the waterbalance calculations on which the self-calibrating Palmer Drought Severity Index is based. The impact of this additional feature on estimates of the scPDSI is discussed. By substituting climatological monthly mean values for PET, from the period 1961-1990, for the actual monthly means of potential evaporation, an estimate is made of the direct effect of climate change, and in particular the increase in temperature, on drought. The scPDSI with these additional features (Penman PET and a simple snow-melt model) makes the calculations more realistic. It is hoped that they will be more widely used outside the United States, as the approach provides a very convenient means of online drought monitoring.

The M51 mystery: Lord Rosse, Robinson, South and the discovery of spiral structure in 1845  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In April 1845 Lord Rosse discovered the spiral structure of M51 with his 72-inch reflector at Birr Castle. Already in March the new telescope had been pointed at the object in Canes Venatici, later nicknamed the 'Whirlpool Nebula'. Two experienced astronomers were present: Sir James South and the Reverend Thomas Romney Robin-son. The problem is that there is no record that they noticed the spiral structure, even though it was immediately seen by Lord Rosse the next month. The solution presented here is based on evidentiary facts, highlighting the nineteenth century astronomical praxis. Focal points are bias, fantasy and a sometimes fatal conspiracy of eye and brain.

Column ozone measurements from Palmer Station, Antarctica: Variations during the Austral Springs of 1988 and 1989  

SciTech Connect

The National Science Foundation scanning spectroradiometer at Palmer Station, Antarctica (64{degree}-46{prime}S, 64{degree}04{prime}W), provides hourly ground-based measurements of solar ultraviolet (UV) irradiance. In addition to defining the UV radiation environment of the region, these measurements allow the derivation of the column density of atmospheric ozone above the station nearly every daylight hour. This hourly time resolution, not generally available from other methods of monitoring Antarctic ozone abundances, enables the detection of large and rapid changes in total column ozone and UV surface irradiance associated with the dynamics of the polar vortex. Column ozone abundance is derived from a ratio of measured irradiances at 300 and 313.5 nanometers (nm) by means of theoretical calculation of this ratio as a function of total ozone amount. Noontime ozone abundances over Palmer Station obtained from this method agree with those obtained by the Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) instrument aboard Nimbus 7 to within about 10% throughout the austral spring of 1988. Ozone recovery at Palmer Station, associated with the breakup of the polar vortex as indicated by TOMS satellite ozone observations, occurred rapidly within a 24-hour period beginning in midafternoon on November 15. Over the Antarctic Peninsula, the 1989 ozone depletion was slightly greater than in 1988, the minimum noontime ozone abundances over Palmer Station as measured by the spectroradiometer being 194 and 166 Dobson units for October 14, 1988, and October 14, 1989, respectively. The 1989 ozone depletion however ended by November 5 over the Antarctic Peninsula, 10 days earlier than the 1988 event.

Effects of Thermal Exposure on the Optical Properties of LORD Aeroglaze A276  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

A lunar outpost will require electrical energy. One potential source is fission surface power where heat from a reactor is converted into electricity utilizing an energy conversion system, and waste heat will need to be rejected from the system. The Second Generation Radiator Demonstration Unit is a technology demonstration unit leading towards operational radiators. To approximate the infrared emittance of the lunar outpost radiators, a low-cost coating compatible with the test conditions was sought. LORD Aeroglaze A276 has a similar emittance, but its performance in air and vacuum at the desired operating temperatures was unknown. This study determined that the emittance remained above 0.86 for all conditions tested and that LORD Aeroglaze A276 is a suitable surrogate coating for the Second Generation Radiator Demonstration Unit.

Continuation of the New England Orogen, Australia, beneath the Queensland Plateau and Lord Howe rise  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Greywacke, argillite, greyschist and hypabyssal igneous rocks have been obtained from an Ocean Drilling Program core on the Queensland Plateau and from xenoliths in a volcanic breccia dredged from the crest of the Lord Howe Rise. Low to intermediate detrital quartz contents, 260-240 Ma K-Ar ages, and only moderately radiogenic Sr and Nd isotope compositions, suggest a correlation with the New England Orogen of eastern Australia, rather than with Australia's Lachlan Orogen or other adjacent geological provinces. Our results indicate that the New England Orogen terranes continue towards New Zealand at least as far as the southern Lord Howe Rise. The projected offshore boundaries of the major east Australian orogens are now known with more confidence, and do not appear to require any major cross-orogen offsets.

From that time, he began to reflect on the passion of Christ as he saw it mysteriously imprinted on the Shroud; and in 1598 Paleotto, by then Archbishop of Bologna, published his book, Esplicatione del Sacro Lenzuolo Ove Fu Involto II Signore (Explanation of the Holy Sheet In which the Lord was wrapped). Dedicating it to the reigning pope, Clement VIII, he writes: "To his Holiness Pope Clement VIII. Finding myself, Most Holy Father, with the illustrious Cardinals Charles Borromeo and Gabrielle Paleotto when they went to Turin to visit the Holy Shroud, the foremost of all relics on account of the effigy and the form of all the body of Our Lord impressed there with his own blood; having seen a thing so admirable, I felt a burning desire to have a copy of the same measure, in order that (fixing my eyes upon it) I would impress those most holy wounds in my mind, for the salvation of my soul... And my desire was fulfilled... and to my hands came a copy, faithfully and diligently produced from the original. In looking upon it often, certain considerations have come to me, and some secret discoveries were clarified in this Linen; such as the quality of the wounds; of the form of the crown of thorns...

Lord's Paradox in a Continuous Setting and a Regression Artifact in Numerical Cognition Research  

PubMed Central

In this paper we review, and elaborate on, the literature on a regression artifact related to Lord’s paradox in a continuous setting. Specifically, the question is whether a continuous property of individuals predicts improvement from training between a pretest and a posttest. If the pretest score is included as a covariate, regression to the mean will lead to biased results if two critical conditions are satisfied: (1) the property is correlated with pretest scores and (2) pretest scores include random errors. We discuss how these conditions apply to the analysis in a published experimental study, the authors of which concluded that linearity of children’s estimations of numerical magnitudes predicts arithmetic learning from a training program. However, the two critical conditions were clearly met in that study. In a reanalysis we find that the bias in the method can fully account for the effect found in the original study. In other words, data are consistent with the null hypothesis that numerical magnitude estimations are unrelated to arithmetic learning. PMID:24752244

In an attempt to place James Baldwin and his ideas within the context of a debate on black sexuality and sexism, this paper begins with a section on Eldridge Cleaver and his critique of Baldwin's position on sexuality and race. Cleaver's own homophobia and misreading of Baldwin's essays and published comments on Richard Wright contribute to his inability to grasp Baldwin's sophisticated analysis of race/sexuality/sexism within Western culture. The second section takes up Baldwin explicitly and attempts both to outline his position more fully and to suggest the breadth and depth of his analysis of sexuality and the work yet to be done to chart it. In the final section of the paper I turn to Audre Lorde in order to update the critique of Baldwin's position within the debate. Lorde, like many other contemporary writer-theorists, sees the terms of the discussion differently from Baldwin. She agrees with his hatred of racism, homophobia, and sexism, but she disagrees with his solution that acceptance and "brotherly" love are a solution to the real problems facing black (and gay) people today. She posits a belief in the necessity for delineating the particular subject position she holds: black, lesbian, female, Western, etc., and she is wary of any allegiances that might elide the clues to her oppression. The paper attempts to demonstrate that these differing positions are, nevertheless, linked in ways historical and otherwise. PMID:8113614

Magnetic stratigraphy and sedimentology of Holocene glacial marine deposits in the Palmer Deep, Bellingshausen Sea, Antarctica: implications for climate change?  

Microsoft Academic Search

The Palmer Deep is a closed bathymetric depression on the Antarctic Peninsula continental shelf. It contains three separate sub-basins. These basins lie along a northeast–southwest axis with water depths ranging from >1400 m to the southwest (Basins II and III) to just over 1000 m to the northeast (Basin I). Six sediment piston cores were collected from the study region;

Bursts of cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) by dissipating clouds at Palmer Station, Antarctica  

SciTech Connect

The authors present here a case study of cloud-mediated production of cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) recorded at Palmer Station (64{degrees}46`S, 64{degrees}05`W), Antarctica on 20 Jan 1994. Four instances of CCN bursts occured on January 17, 19, 20 and February 7, 1994 when cloud base descended to the surface and dissipated under prevailing meteorlogical conditions. The most spectacular event ocurred on January 20 when the CCN concentration was enhanced by a factor of four at 0.025% supersaturation (with respect to water) compared to the prevent concentration. At 1.25% supersaturation, the corresponding enhancement was by a factor of seven. This indicated a larger production of aerosol particles in smaller size ranges. The elevated CCN concentrations were measured for over fifteen hours. The CCN activity spectrum during the event resembled the ones that are typical of previous measurements in the urban plumes of St. Louis and Denver. 30 refs., 3 figs.

Comparing the Palmer Drought Index and the Standardized Precipitation Index for Zagreb-Gric Observatory  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Conventional Palmer Drought Index (PDSI) and recent Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI) are compared for Zagreb-Gric weather station. Historical time series of PDSI and SPI are compared. For that purpose monthly precipitation, air temperature and air humidity data for Zagreb-Gric Observatory and period 1862-2010 are used. The results indicate that SPI is simpler for interpretation than PDI. On the other side, lack of temperature within SPI, make impossible use of it on climate change applications. Further development of both indices is required. Possible applications of them in irrigation scheduling system is considered as well for drought risk assessment. In addition, a comparison of PDSI and SPI for the periods from 1 to 24 months indicate the best agreement between PDSI and SPI for the periods from 6 to 12 months.

Asteroid Lightcurve Analysis at CS3-Palmer Divide Station: 2013 September-December  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Lightcurves for 31 main-belt asteroids were obtained at the Center for Solar System Studies-Palmer Divide Station (CS3-PDS) from 2013 September through December. The majority of the objects were members of the Hungaria group/family. In many cases, the observations were follow-up to previous apparitions to check for the possibility of undiscovered satellites or to provide additional data for spin axis and shape modeling. Three Hungaria asteroids, 4440 Tchantches, 6602 Gilclark, and 7173 Sepkoski, are possible binary candidates while (69406) 1995 SX48 is a probable binary candidate. The inner main-belt asteroid (119744) 2001 YN42 may be a rare example of a binary with a relatively short period superimposed on a large amplitude secondary period on the order of hundreds of hours.

Lightcurves from CCD photometry observations for four suspected or confirmed binary asteroids were obtained at the Center for Solar System Studies-Palmer Divide Station (CS3-PDS) from 2013 June through September. All four objects are members of the Hungaria family/group. 5968 Trauger showed signs of a satellite based on a single possible event. (11217) 1999 JC4 is a more likely candidate based on a strong secondary period; no mutual events were observed, however. (15822) 1999 TV15 is the most likely new binary discovery by the author, showing mutual events in its lightcurve, albeit they were close to the limit of detection. (76818) 2000 RG79 was a known binary asteroid (Warner et al., 2005). The 2013 observations provided additional data for modeling the system.

The Courage to Teach: Exploring the Inner Landscape of a Teacher's Life (by Parker J. Palmer)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Most of us would willingly - perhaps even passionately - tackle the question of what we should teach our students. Similarly, we are likely to engage in a conversation about how we teach and our preferences for organizing classroom time and structures. Although the question of why we teach may be raised less often (and perhaps with a hint of sarcasm), this too is a question to which most can offer a thoughtful response. An entirely different matter, however, is the question of who is the person teaching. This who involves the inner realms of one's heart, mind, and soul. How does our identity affect the teaching and learning processes? As we teach, what paths are we following intellectually, emotionally, or even spiritually? How do these paths influence our relationship to our content and to our students? With an engaging honesty, Parker Palmer pursues these questions in The Courage to Teach: Exploring the Inner Landscape of A Teacher's Life. At the outset he points out (p 4): I have no quarrel with the what or how or why questions - except when they are posed as the only questions worth asking. All of them can yield important insights into teaching and learning. But none of them opens up the territory I want to explore in this book: the inner landscape of the teaching self. One might well question why those of us teaching chemistry should be interested in examining ourselves as part of the teaching equation. Isn't scientific knowledge supposed to be as objective as we can make it? Isn't it better for us to check our emotional or intellectual baggage at the classroom door, rather than to taint the content with our biases? Or perhaps more directly stated, is it not more practical and a better use of our time to simply deal with the realities of the day-to-day classroom issues? Admittedly these are fair questions. However, to become stuck on them is to miss the opportunities for reflection and growth as teachers that Palmer's book offers. Simply put, people teach. Without putting the human factor into the teaching equation, you miss one of the key variables. In the early chapters, Palmer offers the readers simple statements to entice them to delve more deeply into his later discussions. "Good teaching cannot be reduced to technique; good teaching comes from the identity and integrity of the teacher," or, "Bad teachers distance themselves from the subject they are teaching - and in the process, from their students," or ultimately, "Only one resource is at my immediate command: my identity, my selfhood, my sense of this 'I' who teaches - without which I have no sense of the 'Thou' who learns." Readers can expect to find both ideas and a personal honesty on Palmer's part that inspires one to accept human limitations and evokes a gentle chuckle at our good days...and at our bad ones as well. Palmer has strong credentials to write about the self as teacher. In recent years, he has been a visiting faculty member at Beloit College, Berea College, and Georgetown University. Over past few decades, he has written extensively on the teaching and learning process, including To Know as We Are Known: Education as a Spiritual Journey (1983). He holds a Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley and has lived and taught in a variety of settings and communities around the globe. Woven through his writings is a sense of both the human and the spiritual dimensions of being a teacher. Thus, those who most might appreciate his reflections are comfortable with language drawn from spiritual traditions. Palmer spent a number of years as teacher and writer-in-residence at Pendle Hill, a Quaker community in Pennsylvania, and the respect and appreciation that he holds for silence and reflection come through in his writing. Expect to find no religious dogma or prescriptions in what he offers. What might those of us who teach chemistry expect to gain from this book? One possibility offered at the start is his examination of fear as a part of human nature that affects our teaching. Chapter 3 is entitled "A Cul

Impacts of a population outbreak of the urchin Tripneustes gratilla amongst Lord Howe Island coral communities  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Subtidal reef surveys within the Lord Howe Island Marine Park revealed that populations of the sea urchin Tripneustes gratilla underwent an explosive outbreak in some regions of the park over a 2-year period. This urchin was rare or absent during 2006 surveys at 33 sites studied, but at sites off northern Lord Howe Island in 2008, densities averaged >1.3 m-2. Dramatic increases in T. gratilla density (exceeding 4 m-2) were observed at some sites. We quantify community-level impacts of T. gratilla using ‘before-after’ and ‘control-impact’ data. Zones closed to fishing exhibited similar increases in T. gratilla density to zones open to fishing. Although not previously reported as a keystone species affecting coral habitat, T. gratilla was found to possess an ‘ecosystem engineer’ function. Outbreak sites were characterised by significant declines in cover of foliose algae, including red algae, which decreased from 11.2% in 2006 compared to 2.5% in 2008. Brown foliose algae also declined at sites where T. gratilla outbreaks occurred, averaging 20.4% in 2006 compared to 1.8% in 2008. By contrast, crustose coralline algal cover increased at sites where high T. gratilla densities were observed, from 2.7% in 2006 to an average of 42.6% in 2008. We found no clear indication of impacts on sessile invertebrates or flow-on effects to other levels of the food web, with no significant change in coral cover or densities of mobile invertebrates or fish populations associated with the T. gratilla outbreak.

A large population of king crabs in Palmer Deep on the west Antarctic Peninsula shelf and potential invasive impacts.  

PubMed

Lithodid crabs (and other skeleton-crushing predators) may have been excluded from cold Antarctic continental shelf waters for more than 14 Myr. The west Antarctic Peninsula shelf is warming rapidly and has been hypothesized to be soon invaded by lithodids. A remotely operated vehicle survey in Palmer Deep, a basin 120 km onto the Antarctic shelf, revealed a large, reproductive population of lithodids, providing the first evidence that king crabs have crossed the Antarctic shelf. DNA sequencing and morphology indicate the lithodid is Neolithodes yaldwyni Ahyong & Dawson, previously reported only from Ross Sea waters. We estimate a N. yaldwyni population density of 10 600 km(-2) and a population size of 1.55 × 10(6) in Palmer Deep, a density similar to lithodid populations of commercial interest around Alaska and South Georgia. The lithodid occurred at depths of more than 850 m and temperatures of more than 1.4°C in Palmer Deep, and was not found in extensive surveys of the colder shelf at depths of 430-725 m. Where N. yaldwyni occurred, crab traces were abundant, megafaunal diversity reduced and echinoderms absent, suggesting that the crabs have major ecological impacts. Antarctic Peninsula shelf waters are warming at approximately 0.01°C yr(-1); if N. yaldwyni is currently limited by cold temperatures, it could spread up onto the shelf (400-600 m depths) within 1-2 decades. The Palmer Deep N. yaldwyni population provides an important model for the potential invasive impacts of crushing predators on vulnerable Antarctic shelf ecosystems. PMID:21900324

Health assessment for PSC Resources, Inc. , Palmer, Massachusetts, Region 1. CERCLIS No. MAD980731483. Final report  

SciTech Connect

The PSC Resources, Inc. site is listed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on the National Priorities List (NPL). The 3.6-acre PSC Resources, Inc. site is located at 10 Water Street, Palmer, Massachusetts. A waste oil refinery and solvent recovery plant operated on-site until the facility was abandoned by the owner in 1978. Millions of gallons of waste were left behind in tanks and lagoons. Contamination of soil, surface water and ground water occurs on-site. Soil contamination includes polychlorinated biphenyls at concentrations up to 30 ppm and lead. Surface water present in dikes contained lead and benzene. Oil sampled in the dikes contained cadmium, lead, benzene and PCBs. Oil found in a rainwater catchbasin contained Aroclor-1242 and tetrachloroethylene. Shallow ground water contamination consisted mostly of volatile organic compounds including 1,1,1-trichloroethane (40 ppm), trichloroethylene, benzene, methylene chloride, trans-1,2-dichloroethylene and tetrachloroethylene. Off-site contamination data is scant, as the Remedial Investigation has not been completed. The site is considered to be of potential public health concern because of the risk to human health caused by the possibility of exposure to significant levels of hazardous substances via the interception of contaminated ground water by private residential wells, the possible transport of contaminants off-site during flood events, and the recreational use of the nearby wetland and Quaboag River.

Joint spatiotemporal variability of global sea surface temperatures and global Palmer drought severity index values  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Dominant modes of individual and joint variability in global sea surface temperatures (SST) and global Palmer drought severity index (PDSI) values for the twentieth century are identified through a multivariate frequency domain singular value decomposition. This analysis indicates that a secular trend and variability related to the El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) are the dominant modes of variance shared among the global datasets. For the SST data the secular trend corresponds to a positive trend in Indian Ocean and South Atlantic SSTs, and a negative trend in North Pacific and North Atlantic SSTs. The ENSO reconstruction shows a strong signal in the tropical Pacific, North Pacific, and Indian Ocean regions. For the PDSI data, the secular trend reconstruction shows high amplitudes over central Africa including the Sahel, whereas the regions with strong ENSO amplitudes in PDSI are the southwestern and northwestern United States, South Africa, northeastern Brazil, central Africa, the Indian subcontinent, and Australia. An additional significant frequency, multidecadal variability, is identified for the Northern Hemisphere. This multidecadal frequency appears to be related to the Atlantic multidecadal oscillation (AMO). The multidecadal frequency is statistically significant in the Northern Hemisphere SST data, but is statistically nonsignificant in the PDSI data.

Cenozoic volcanism of the Capel-Faust Basins, Lord Howe Rise, SW Pacific Ocean  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

New bathymetry, geophysical data and samples were acquired in 2007 during a marine reconnaissance survey using the R.V. Tangaroa in the frontier Capel and Faust basins, Lord Howe Rise (LHR) by Geoscience Australia as part of the Australian Government's Offshore Energy Security Program. This survey identified a number of volcanic features including cones, flows and sill-related features on the seafloor. Based on analysis of seismic data and swath bathymetry, there are at least two distinct ages of volcanism exposed on the seafloor; Late Miocene-Pliocene cones with a largely unmodified conical shape and Eocene-Oligocene volcanic features. The Middle Miocene Gifford Guyot, part of the Lord Howe seamount chain was included in the survey area. Volcanic features are common on the seafloor of the LHR and in the neighbouring Tasman Basin, with two identified north-south seamount hotspot chains to the west of the Capel-Faust region that have been active from the Miocene to recent. The previously completed ZoNéCo 5 swath-mapping, seismic and sampling survey also identified a few small conical seamounts on the northern LHR, along a roughly north-northwest trend, dated as Early Miocene. The younger Capel-Faust seamounts are aligned with these and the age relationships suggest they could be part of a single seamount chain. The older cones do not show any preferred alignment within the survey area and are too old to be related to the current hotspot activity in the region. Samples are variably altered but trace element abundances of all dredged mafic rocks indicate they are alkalic basalt. Samples from the younger cones can be differentiated from each other and from the Gifford Guyot on a plot of Ti, Sr and Tb/Yb reflecting different source depths or degrees of partial melting. A comparison of pyroxene from the older more altered cones and the younger cones shows that these most likely represent two distinct magmatic events and that the younger cones are similar to the ZoNéCo 5 seamounts.

EDITORIAL: Richard Palmer: celebrating 37 years with Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter Richard Palmer: celebrating 37 years with Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

It is with a great deal of both happiness and sadness that I have to announce that we are losing one of the real strengths of the Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter (JPCM). Dr Richard Palmer, our Senior Publisher, announced his retirement, and this issue marks the first without his involvement. Of course, we are happy that he will get to enjoy his retirement, but we are sad to lose such a valuable member of our team. Richard first started work at IOP Publishing in March 1971 as an Editorial Assistant with Journal of Physics B: Atomic and Molecular Physics. After a few months, he transferred to Journal of Physics C: Solid State Physics. During his first year, he was sent on a residential publishing training course and asked to sign an undertaking to stay at IOP Publishing for at least two years. Although Richard refused to sign, as he did not want to commit himself, he has remained with the journal since then. The following year, the Assistant Editor of Journal of Physics C: Solid State Physics, Malcolm Haines, walked out without notice in order to work on his family vineyard in France, and Richard stepped into the breach. In those days, external editors had a much more hands-on role in IOP Publishing and he had to travel to Harwell to be interviewed by Alan Lidiard, the Honorary Editor of Journal of Physics C: Solid State Physics, before being given the job of Assistant Editor permanently. I am told that in those days the job consisted mainly of editing and proofreading and peer review. There was no journal development work. At some point in the early 1980s, production and peer review were split into separate departments and Richard then headed a group of journals consisting of Journal of Physics C: Solid State Physics, Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics and Journal of Physics F: Metal Physics, Semiconductor Science and Technology, Superconductor Science and Technology, Plasma Physics and Controlled Fusion, and later Nanotechnology and Modelling and Simulation in Materials Science and Engineering. Under the new structure, journal development became an increasingly important part of his job. At about the same time, Richard was also asked to take over running Reports on Progress in Physics, which up to then had been done by the head of the IOP Journals Department, Kurt Paulus. In 1989, Journal of Physics C: Solid State Physics and Journal of Physics F: Metal Physics remerged to form JPCM. Since then, Richard has gradually shed his other journal responsibilities, except for Reports on Progress in Physics, to build up JPCM. He has worked closely with four Editors-in-Chief of Journal of Physics C: Solid State Physics, five of JPCM, five of Reports on Progress in Physics and about ten of other journals, and attended approximately 300 Editorial Board meetings. I should say that he has made my own tenure at Editor-in-Chief an easy task to learn and take on, and has been a major guiding light in the development of the journal. In 2006, Richard was honoured by the award of a Member of the British Empire (MBE) for services to science publishing. Those of us on the board were particularly pleased about this, as one is not always recognized for the effort they expend, and this award was certainly due for Richard. We are going to miss Richard a great deal, but are happy that he will remain on a part time basis to help our new Publisher, Dr Lucy Smith, and the rest of us through the transition. His retirement leaves us with a huge hole that we will have to work extremely hard to fill. Speaking for the various boards, and especially the executive board, I want to wish Richard the very best in his retirement.

Few studies have examined the role of religion and spirituality among African American breast cancer patients. This study explored how African American women cope with breast cancer through religious and spiritual practices. Forty-seven African American women who had completed treatment for breast cancer participated in in-depth interviews about their experiences. The majority of the women mentioned using both individual and communal religious and spiritual practices to cope with their breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. The main themes that emerged in terms of the types of religious and spiritual practices included: (1) attendance at religious services, (2) comfort through prayers of others, and (3) encouragement through reading Biblical scriptures. These practices helped women "trust in the Lord" throughout the many challenges of cancer from diagnosis through survivorship. Although this study is exploratory, the findings illustrate how African American women with breast cancer use religious and spiritual practices to cope with their diagnosis and treatment. For clinicians, the findings provides an understanding of spiritual and religious needs in diverse populations and the importance of referring patients onto spiritual and religious resources and support.

The Lord of Rings - the mysterious case of the stolen rings: a critical analysis S. Sandrelli INAF - Osservatorio Astronomico di Brera, Milano, Italy (stefano.sandrelli@brera.inaf.it / Fax: 02 72001600 / Phone: +39 02 72320337) "The Lord of Rings - the mysterious case of the stolen rings" is a live astronomical role-playing game for kids aged 10 -13. Its goal is to introduce them to some of the main topics of the Solar System: a) the role of gravity; b) the distribution of mass & light; c) the effects of rotation; d) the distribution of water. The game was held both at the Perugia (2004) and the Genova Science Festival (2005), obtaining great success. Teams of about 6-8 members are introduced to Mr Schioppanelli, the astro-detective of the town (the name is a pun: it reminds Schiaparelli, the famous italian astronomer, and it is a slang expression meaning "ring-breaker"). Mr Schioppanelli has his office in an "gastronomical astronomical observatory", known as The Red Giant Pizzeria. Schioppanelli informs the kids that a mysterious Centaur succeded in stealing the rings of Saturn. The partecipants are appointed astro-detectives in-charge and asked to find the rings by browsing around the Solar System, which is scaled so as to fit the town historical centre or a pedestrian area, going from the Sun to Saturn or beyond, depending on the actual area at disposal. Great care must be taken allowing children playing only in a car-free area of the town. At the right scaled distances, the partecipants meet characters playing as the various planets. The kids can talk to them after solving a riddle, obtaining useful informations. A special characters play as a comet, timely going in and out of the inner solar system. The teams can also talk to some shepherd-moons of the rings. They easily discover that the rings were totally destroyed by the Centaur: a real disaster! They are also suggested to gather the necessary ingredients (gravity, light, rotation, inclination, dust and water, represented by simple objects like apples, spinning tops and so on) to re-build the rings. The kids can buy the ingredients from different planets: every planet has ingredients in quantities which are proportionate to the real physical properties of that celestial object. After collecting the ingredients, they must carry them to the "The Red Giant" and indicate their best recipe to Mr Schioppanelli. Depending on the recipe, rings can be too strict or too luminous or too fast rotating and so on. The winning group is the one which prepares the best recipe to cook the rings in the smallest amount of time. After presentig this specific (and mysterious) case, we analyse the advantage- disadvantage ratio of such an activity, beeing as funny as dispersive.

Characteristics and trends in various forms of the Palmer Drought Severity Index during 1900-2008  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI) has been widely used to study aridity changes in modern and past climates. Efforts to address its major problems have led to new variants of the PDSI, such as the self-calibrating PDSI (sc_PDSI) and PDSI using improved formulations for potential evapotranspiration (PE), such as the Penman-Monteith equation (PE_pm) instead of the Thornthwaite equation (PE_th). Here I compare and evaluate four forms of the PDSI, namely, the PDSI with PE_th (PDSI_th) and PE_pm (PDSI_pm) and the sc_PDSI with PE_th (sc_PDSI_th) and PE_pm (sc_PDSI_pm) calculated using available climate data from 1850 to 2008. Our results confirm previous findings that the choice of the PE only has small effects on both the PDSI and sc_PDSI for the 20th century climate, and the self-calibration reduces the value range slightly and makes the sc_PDSI more comparable spatially than the original PDSI. However, the histograms of the sc_PDSI are still non-Gaussian at many locations, and all four forms of the PDSI show similar correlations with observed monthly soil moisture (r = 0.4-0.8) in North America and Eurasia, with historical yearly streamflow data (r = 0.4-0.9) over most of the world's largest river basins, and with GRACE (Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment) satellite-observed water storage changes (r = 0.4-0.8) over most land areas. All the four forms of the PDSI show widespread drying over Africa, East and South Asia, and other areas from 1950 to 2008, and most of this drying is due to recent warming. The global percentage of dry areas has increased by about 1.74% (of global land area) per decade from 1950 to 2008. The use of the Penman-Monteith PE and self-calibrating PDSI only slightly reduces the drying trend seen in the original PDSI. The percentages of dry and wet areas over the global land area and six select regions are anticorrelated (r = -0.5 to -0.7), but their long-term trends during the 20th century do not cancel each other, with the trend for the dry area often predominating over that for the wet area, resulting in upward trends during the 20th century for the areas under extreme (i.e., dry or wet) conditions for the global land as a whole (˜1.27% per decade) and the United States, western Europe, Australia, Sahel, East Asia, and southern Africa. The recent drying trends are qualitatively consistent with other analyses and model predictions, which suggest more severe drying in the coming decades.

Exploring the Components of the Palmer Drought Indices Using the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint (ACF) River Basin as a Case Study  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Water resources are vital to sustaining ecosystem services, energy and food supplies, and industrial processes. Competition for water resources is likely to intensify as the population increases, economy grows, and land develops. Drought events intensify water scarcity, and recent events in many countries, including the United States (US), Great Britain, and Sri Lanka, highlight how important it is to provide meaningful context to water planners and managers. Palmer's drought indices - Z Index, Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI), and Palmer Hydrological Drought Index (PHDI) - are widely used and accepted by scientists and policy makers in the US to understand drought and manage water resources. Drought index values at the climate division scale are available, but a transparent calculation tool at multiple spatial and temporal scales is not readily available. Moreover, a close look at the development of the indices reveals a number of subjective calculation methods and regionally biased factors. For researchers studying areas with overlapping climate divisions, performing international research, or working with limited, site-specific data, the ability to control and modify calculations is desired. This research presents a transparent tool for calculating Palmer's drought indices. We use the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint (ACF) River Basin, located in the southeastern US, as our case study to explore and evaluate the sensitivity of Palmer's indices to temperature and precipitation anomalies, calibration periods, and other index components. The ACF has suffered two major droughts (2007 and 2012) in the past five years and supports multiple demand-side sectors - agriculture in Georgia, public and recreational supply for the Atlanta metropolitan area, hydroelectric power in Alabama, tri-state navigation, and ecosystem services. We show how the PDSI varies in response to changes in precipitation, calibration period, and a number of other variables. The aim of the work is to make this easily used tool available to help professionals who work toward facilitating water management and reducing water conflicts in the future.

Lord Justice of Appeal John Fletcher Moulton and explosives production in World War I: 'the mathematical mind triumphant'.  

PubMed

At the end of November 1914 Lord Moulton (1844-1921) became the director of explosives production in the War Office. A 70-year-old jurist may seem an extraordinary choice, but he was an extraordinary man. He was Senior Wrangler at Cambridge, was elected to the Royal Society for research on electricity, and learned about chemistry as a barrister for dye and explosives manufacturers. He assembled an able team of administrators and chemists who designed and managed mammoth new national explosives factories. They could not make enough TNT and picric acid from obtainable precursors, so Moulton persuaded the reluctant armed services to adopt mixtures of TNT and ammonium nitrate, which enabled them to make even more than was needed. In mid-1915 they moved to the new Ministry of Munitions, where they also became responsible for fertilizers and poison gases. In 1917 they produced explosives at a higher rate than was attained in World War II. PMID:24921109

The Lord of Rings & the Olmi-Comics: Two cases of non-traditional approach to astronomy  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Besides its traditional activities, the Public Outreach & Education offi ce (POE) of INAF-Osservatorio Astronomico di Brera (Milan, Italy) is carrying out two experiments in informal education for children aged 10 to 13: "The Lord of Rings - the mysterious case of the stolen rings" and "The Olmi-comics". The former is an astronomical role-playing game. Pupils are requested to discover the burglars of the rings of Saturn by hunting for them in an area where they meet actors playing their parts at distances scaled to the ones of the Solar System. The latter is a writing/ drawing workshop. Pupils try to write stories or draw comics about science. While the two projects are rather different both in content and in format, they have a common goal: making pupils live science, mainly astronomy, both with the mind and the body.

Myth smashers, myth makers: (re)visionary techniques in the works of Paula Gunn Allen, Gloria Anzaldúa and Audre Lorde.  

PubMed

This paper examines the revisionist mythmaking strategies employed by three lesbian-feminist writers of color: Paula Gunn Allen (Laguna/Sioux/Lebanese/Scottish), Gloria Anzaldúa (Chicana tejana), and Audre Lorde (Caribbean/African/American). By incorporating creatrix figures such as the West African Mawulisa, the pre-Aztec Coatlicue, and the Laguna Pueblo Spider Old Woman/Thought Woman into their works, they challenge the cultural stereotypes that silence women of color by denying their access to language. Their use of nonwestern mythic material destabilizes monolithic definitions of (white heterosexual) female identity, yet their mythmaking goes beyond this challenge to hegemonic concepts of (white) womanhood. As they replace the Judeo-Christian world-view with modes of perception drawn from Native American, Chicana, and African mythic traditions, they offer a far-reaching critique of western culture's binary structures. By displacing the boundaries between inner/outer, subject/object, spirit/matter, and other dichotomous terms, the new myths they create provide radical alternatives to the existing social structures.

The Lord of Rings - the mysterious case of the stolen rings: a critical analysis of an informal education activity  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

"The Lord of Rings - the mysterious case of the stolen rings" is a live astronomical role-playing game for kids aged 10 -13 [1]. Its goal is to introduce them to some of the main topics of the Solar System: a) the role of gravity; b) the distribution of mass & light; c) the effects of rotation; d) the distribution of water. The game was held at several Science Festival in Italy (Perugia, Genova, Fiorano, Bologna) obtaining great success. Teams of about 6-8 members are introduced to Mr Schioppanelli, the astro-detective of the town (the name is a pun: it reminds Schiaparelli, the famous italian astronomer, and it is a slang expression meaning "ring-breaker"). Mr Schioppanelli has his office in an "gastronomical astronomical observatory", known as The Red Giant Pizzeria. Schioppanelli informs the kids that a mysterious Centaur succeded in stealing the rings of Saturn. The partecipants are appointed astro-detectives incharge and asked to find the rings by browsing around the Solar System, which is scaled so as to fit the town historical centre or a pedestrian area, going from the Sun to Saturn or beyond, depending on the actual area at disposal. Great care must be taken allowing children playing only in a car-free area of the town. At the right scaled distances, the partecipants meet characters playing as the various planets.

After collecting the ingredients, they must carry them to the "The Red Giant" and indicate their best recipe to Mr Schioppanelli. Depending on the recipe, rings can be too strict or too luminous or too fast rotating and so on. The winning group is the one which prepares the best recipe to cook the rings in the smallest amount of time. After introducing this specific (and mysterious) game, we analyze the advantage-disadvantage ratio of such an activity, which is as funny as dispersive [2]. The key expression of the whole activity is, of course, "informal education". But, as a best practice result, we organize also 1 or 2 very simple laboratories about the solar system before playing the game. One of these, called The Olmicomics, allows the pupils to understand the dimensions of the planets with respect to their distances, providing them the correct introduction to "The Lord of Rings". The pupils are simply requested to pone the planets in a correct scale on a map of the city where they live. Then we coherently calculate together dimension of the Solar System planets and the Sun, according to the scale they chose. The second activity provide the pupils hints about the physical properties of the planets, touching the points a)-d) listed above. We believe this two-faces strategy is a quite effective tool for an education suited to our target group. They really do things, touch things, use their own body as a meter to understand distances and physical properties as the gravitational force. In the meanwhile, they are also asked to think about what they are doing, to make calculation and to build a representation of the Solar System by numbers, turning it into a visual representation only after their calculation. And, finally, to play with all these conceipts.

Deep-sea bio-physical variables as surrogates for biological assemblages, an example from the Lord Howe Rise  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Little is known about diversity patterns of biological assemblages in deep-sea environments, primarily because sampling deep-sea biota over vast areas is time consuming, difficult, and costly. In contrast, physical mapping capabilities are increasing rapidly, and are becoming more cost-effective. Consequently, the growing need to manage and conserve marine resources, particularly deep-sea areas that are sensitive to anthropogenic disturbance and change, is leading the promotion of physical data as surrogates to predict biological assemblages. However, few studies have directly examined the predictive ability of these surrogates. The physical environment and biological assemblages were surveyed for two adjacent areas - the western flank of Lord Howe Rise (LHR) and the Gifford Guyot - spanning combined water depths of 250-2200 m depth on the northern part of the LHR, in the Coral Sea. Multibeam acoustic surveys were used to generate large-scale geomorphic classification maps that were superimposed over the study area. Forty towed-video stations were deployed across the area capturing 32 h of seabed video, 6229 still photographs, that generated 3413 seabed characterisations of physical and biological variables. In addition, sediment and biological samples were collected from 36 stations across the area. The northern Lord Howe Rise was characterised by diverse but sparsely distributed faunas for both the vast soft-sediment environments as well as the discrete rock outcrops. Substratum type and depth were the main variables correlated with benthic assemblage composition. Soft-sediments were characterised by low to moderate levels of bioturbation, while rocky outcrops supported diverse but sparse assemblages of suspension feeding invertebrates, such as cold-water corals and sponges which in turn supported epifauna, dominated by ophiuroids and crinoids. While deep environments of the LHR flank and lower slopes of the Gifford Guyot were characterised by bioturbation with high occurrences of trails, burrows, and mounds, evidence for bioturbation was significantly less on the upper sections of Gifford Guyot, with mostly trails on the more sediment starved environments. The seamount summit also supported a variety of taxa, such as benthic ctenophores and rock-associated fishes that were not recorded in the deeper basin habitats. Physical characteristics of the seabed, particularly geomorphology, were good predictors of biological assemblage composition and percent cover of key taxa. Of the nine geomorphic classes assessed in this study, six predicted different physical habitats that supported distinct biological assemblages. However, other classes that were defined by spatial features (e.g., valleys, seamount dunes) where surficial physical variables were not unique, provided little predictive power of biological assemblages, but rather had characteristics that were shared with adjacent/surrounding geomorphic classes. Given the growing need to use surrogates in the management and conservation of marine environments, these results are promising. However, our findings suggest that there is a pressing need for careful testing and validation of surrogates, such as geomorphic classes, before classification schemes can be deemed effective and employed as a management tool to predict seabed habitats and their biological assemblages.

Returning home: forced conscription, reintegration, and mental health status of former abductees of the Lord's Resistance Army in northern Uganda  

PubMed Central

Background Since the late 1980s, the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), a spiritualist rebel group in northern Uganda, has killed and mutilated thousands of civilians and abducted an estimated 52,000 to 75,000 people to serve as soldiers, porters, and sex slaves for its commanders. This study examines the types of violence to which former abductees have been exposed and the extent to which these acts have affected their psychological well-being. Methods This is a cross-sectional study of 2,875 individuals selected through a multi-stage stratified cluster sampling design conducted in 8 districts of northern Uganda. Multivariate logistic regressions were performed with symptoms for Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and depression as the main outcome measures. Results One-third of the respondents (33%) self-reported having experienced abduction (49% among the Acholi, the largest tribal group in northern Uganda). Over half (56%) of all the respondents and over two-thirds of those who experienced abduction met the criteria for symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Multivariate analysis shows that several factors increased the risk of former LRA abductees developing symptoms of PTSD. These factors included gender (females were more susceptible than males), being a member of the Acholi ethnic group, participating in or witnessing a cumulative number of traumatic events, and encountering difficulties re-integrating into communities after abduction. Factors associated with increased risk of meeting criteria for symptoms of depression included older age of males at the time of abduction, lower score on social relationship scale, high incidence of general traumatic event exposure, high incidence of forced acts of violence, and problems reintegrating into communities after abduction. Conclusion Abduction and forced conscription of civilians has affected the psychological well-being of a significant number of northern Ugandans. The sources of psychological trauma are multiple, ranging from witnessing to being forced to commit violent acts, and compounded by prolonged exposure to violence, often for months or years. Community-based mental health care services and reintegration programs are needed to facilitate the reintegration of former abductees back into their communities. PMID:19445689

PREFACE: Celebrating 20 years of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter—in honour of Richard Palmer Celebrating 20 years of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter—in honour of Richard Palmer  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the launch of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter in 1989. The journal was formed from the merger of Journal of Physics C: Solid State Physics and Journal of Physics F: Metal Physics which had separated in 1971. In the 20 years since its launch, Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter has more than doubled in size, while raising standards. Indeed, Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter has become one of the leading scientific journals for our field. This could not have occurred without great leadership at the top. No one has been more responsible for this growth in both size and quality than our Senior Publisher, Richard Palmer. Richard first started work at IOP in March 1971 as an Editorial Assistant with J. Phys. B After a few months, he transferred to J. Phys.C The following year, the Assistant Editor of J. Phys. C, Malcolm Haines, left suddenly in order to work on his family vineyard in France, and Richard stepped into the breach. In those days, external editors had a much more hands-on role in IOP Publishing and he had to travel to Harwell to be interviewed by Alan Lidiard, the Honorary Editor of J. Phys. C, before being given the job of Assistant Editor permanently. Since J. Phys. C and J. Phys. F re-merged to form Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter, Richard gradually shed his other journal responsibilities, except for Reports on Progress in Physics, to build up Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter. He has worked closely with four Editors-in-Chief of J. Phys. C and five of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter. When Richard announced his retirement this past winter, we met it with a great deal of both happiness and sadness. Of course, we are happy that he is going to be allowed to enjoy his retirement, but we remain very sad to lose such a valuable member of our team, especially the one who had provided the heart and soul of the journal over its 20 years. We will be able to rely upon the team which Richard ably trained as we go into the future. The Executive Board decided to do this special issue, both to commemorate the 20th year of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter and to honour Richard for his long years of service to IOP Publishing and Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter. This issue is dedicated to Richard for his many years of work and friendship with the journal board that has seen a great many changes over the years. This issue covers a very wide range of topics, since we approached all current and past members of the various boards of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter in seeking papers for this special issue. The response has been very positive and this will be one of our larger special issues. The desire to honour Richard is widespread among these various boards, so that we have been almost overwhelmed with submissions, although many who wished to contribute could not because of other obligations. We hope that you, the readership, will enjoy these articles.

Integration of Palmer Drought Severity Index and remote sensing data to simulate wetland water surface from 1910 to 2009 in Cottonwood Lake area, North Dakota  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Spatiotemporal variations of wetland water in the Prairie Pothole Region are controlled by many factors; two of them are temperature and precipitation that form the basis of the Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI). Taking the 196km2 Cottonwood Lake area in North Dakota as our pilot study site, we integrated PDSI, Landsat images, and aerial photography records to simulate monthly water surface. First, we developed a new Wetland Water Area Index (WWAI) from PDSI to predict water surface area. Second, we developed a water allocation model to simulate the spatial distribution of water bodies at a resolution of 30m. Third, we used an additional procedure to model the small wetlands (less than 0.8ha) that could not be detected by Landsat. Our results showed that i) WWAI was highly correlated with water area with an R2 of 0.90, resulting in a simple regression prediction of monthly water area to capture the intra- and inter-annual water change from 1910 to 2009; ii) the spatial distribution of water bodies modeled from our approach agreed well with the water locations visually identified from the aerial photography records; and iii) the R2 between our modeled water bodies (including both large and small wetlands) and those from aerial photography records could be up to 0.83 with a mean average error of 0.64km2 within the study area where the modeled wetland water areas ranged from about 2 to 14km2. These results indicate that our approach holds great potential to simulate major changes in wetland water surface for ecosystem service; however, our products could capture neither the short-term water change caused by intensive rainstorm events nor the wetland change caused by human activities. ?? 2011.

Development of a remotely sensing seasonal vegetation-based Palmer Drought Severity Index and its application of global drought monitoring over 1982-2011  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

effects are currently disregarded in Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI), and the sensitivity of PDSI to the choice of potential evaporation (EP) parameterization is often a concern. We developed a revised self-calibrating PDSI model that replaces EP with leaf area index-based total evapotranspiration (ARTS E0). It also included a simple snowmelt module. Using a unique satellite leaf area index data set and climate data, we calculated and compared ARTS E0, three other types of EP (i.e., Thornthwaite EP_Th, Allen EP_Al, and Penman-Monteith EP_PM), and corresponding PDSI values (i.e., PDSI_ARTS, PDSI_Th, PDSI_Al, and PDSI_PM) for the period 1982-2011. The results of PDSI_ARTS, PDSI_Al, and PDSI_PM show that global land became wetter mainly due to increased precipitation and El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) effect for the period, which confirms the ongoing intensification of global hydrologic cycle with global temperature increase. However, only PDSI_Th gave a trend of global drying, which confirms that PDSI_Th overestimates the global drying in response to global warming; i.e., PDSI values are sensitive to the parameterizations for Ep. Thus, ARTS E0, EP_Al, and EP_PM are preferred to EP_Th in global drought monitoring. In short, global warming affects global drought condition in two opposite ways. One is to contribute to the increases of EP and hence drought; the other is to increase global precipitation that contributes to global wetting. These results suggest that precipitation trend and its interaction with global warming and ENSO should be given much attention to correctly quantify past and future trends of drought.

Highly Variable Holocene Antarctic Climate: A High-Resolution Marine Geochemical Record of Surface and Export Production, Terrigenous Provenance, and Terrigenous Accumulation from the Palmer Deep, West Antarctic Peninsula.  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Antarctic Peninsula is an ideal region to investigate climate change at decadal to millennial timescales due to its location in one of the earth's most dynamic climate systems. We have targeted the geochemical sedimentary record of ODP Site 1098 in the Palmer Deep to investigate changes in Holocene glacial evolution and oscillations in the Circumpolar Deep Water as traced by terrigenous provenance, terrigenous accumulation, nutrient utilization, and surface and export production. More than 50 meters of laminated diatomaceous muds, oozes, and muddy diamictons were recovered from the Palmer Deep, comprising the first, high-resolution, continuous Holocene sediment record from the Antarctic continental margin. We report on a synthesis of trace and major element, stable isotope, and C/N geochemistry on samples collected at a temporal resolution ranging from ~8 to ~50 years. We analyzed Si, Al, Ti, P, Ba, biogenic opal, organic C and N, and organic 13C/12C and 15N/14N isotopic ratios every 2.5 to 10 cm downcore. A series of sequential extractions were completed on a subset of samples to better constrain the elemental distribution within the different components of the sediment. Our chronology is based on 36 AMS radiocarbon dates. Biogenic opal, Corg, and P accumulation rates all increase ~2,000 years B.P., reaching a maximum ~5,500 to 7,000 years B.P. Opal concentrations are less variable, yet indicate that biosiliceous production increased during the mid-Holocene. 13C/12C in bulk organic matter are high (with values similar to ice-edge bloom products) ~4500 to 7000 years B.P., signifying stronger diatom bloom events during the mid-Holocene. Prior to ~3000 years B.P., delta15N was lower for ~2,000 years, resulting from less complete utilization of photic zone nitrate. The Al/Ti ratio indicates a change in terrigenous composition ~3500 years B.P. indicating a change in source, weathering style, and/or intensity. All tracers of productivity and terrigenous provenance exhibit significant variance at periods of ~400, 200, 140, and 70 years. Cross-spectral analysis of Al/Ti vs Al accumulation show that these two parameters are in phase with each other at the 400, 200, and 140 year periods, suggesting that changes in terrigenous provenance are concurrent with changes in terrigenous accumulation. Although the mechanisms forcing mid-Holocene enhancements in productivity and terrigenous supply remain unclear, candidates include greater glacial and sea-ice freshwater influences, reduced wind shear, or changing oceanographic frontal positions. A possible external forcing parameter is solar irradiance, possibly mediated through variability in the polar vortex.

Viscosity Coefficient Curve Fits for Ionized Gas Species Grant Palmer  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Viscosity coefficient curve fits for neutral gas species are available from many sources. Many do a good job of reproducing experimental and computational chemistry data. The curve fits are usually expressed as a function of temperature only. This is consistent with the governing equations used to derive an expression for the neutral species viscosity coefficient. Ionized species pose a more complicated problem. They are subject to electrostatic as well as intermolecular forces. The electrostatic forces are affected by a shielding phenomenon where electrons shield the electrostatic forces of positively charged ions beyond a certain distance. The viscosity coefficient for an ionized gas species is a function of both temperature and local electron number density. Currently available curve fits for ionized gas species, such as those presented by Gupta/Yos, are a function of temperature only. What they did was to assume an electron number density. The problem is that the electron number density they assumed was unrealistically high. The purpose of this paper is two-fold. First, the proper expression for determining the viscosity coefficient of an ionized species as a function of both temperature and electron number density will be presented. Then curve fit coefficients will be developed using the more realistic assumption of an equilibrium electron number density. The results will be compared against previous curve fits and against highly accurate computational chemistry data.

Controversy and the state: lord ARPA and intelligent computing.

This is a study of a well-known controversy in computer science, between artificial intelligence and neural networks researchers. It examines claims made by participants in the field that the controversy was triggered, shaped and finally resolved in connection to activities of state research agencies, particularly the US Department of Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA). In contrast to these claims, this account concludes that, although ARPA's relations to the controversy among researchers were important, they were indirect. This study thus beings the analytical resources of studies of scientific controversy to bear on a domain which has so far gone largely unexamined in studies of 20th-century controversies - namely, state research policy and management. The account is based on contemporary documents, historical literatuare, and interviews with researchers and ARPA officials. PMID:11619937

“Kerrr” black hole: The lord of the string  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Kerrr in the title is not a typo. The third “r” stands for regular, in the sense of pathology-free rotating black hole. We exhibit a long search-for, exact, Kerr-like, solution of the Einstein equations with novel features: (i) no curvature ring singularity; (ii) no “anti-gravity” universe with causality violating time-like closed world-lines; (iii) no “super-luminal” matter disk. The ring singularity is replaced by a classical, circular, rotating string with Planck tension representing the inner engine driving the rotation of all the surrounding matter. The resulting geometry is regular and smoothly interpolates among inner Minkowski space, borderline de Sitter and outer Kerr universe. The key ingredient to cure all unphysical features of the ordinary Kerr black hole is the choice of a “non-commutative geometry inspired” matter source as the input for the Einstein equations, in analogy with spherically symmetric black holes described in earlier works.

The study of biogeochemical processes in representative antarctic marine ecosystems is a priority objective of the US Joint Global Ocean Flux Study. Carbon and bioelement (especially silica) fluxes in the southern oceans are significant on global scales, but are poorly constrained due to undersampling. Consequently, we are unable to construct accurated coupled physical-biogeochemical models or to predict the response of the southern oceans to global environmental change. Additional information has been gathered in this program by measuring nutrient concentrations throughout the study area to help define the regional variability in water-mass distributions and to map the patterns and magnitudes of regional upper-ocean nutrient depletions resulting from biological activity. These studies focus on the dissolved silicic acid-nitrate relationships. 15 refs. 3 figs.

Coastal-Change and Glaciological Map of the Palmer Land Area, Antarctica: 1947-2009  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Reduction in the area and volume of the two polar ice sheets is intricately linked to changes in global climate, and the resulting rise in sea level could severely impact the densely populated coastal regions on Earth. Antarctica is Earth's largest reservoir of glacial ice. Melting of the West Antarctic part alone of the Antarctic ice sheet would cause a sea-level rise of approximately 6 meters (m), and the potential sea-level rise after melting of the entire Antarctic ice sheet is estimated to be 65 m (Lythe and others, 2001) to 73 m (Williams and Hall, 1993). The mass balance (the net volumetric gain or loss) of the Antarctic ice sheet is highly complex, responding differently to different climatic and other conditions in each region (Vaughan, 2005). In a review paper, Rignot and Thomas (2002) concluded that the West Antarctic ice sheet is probably becoming thinner overall; although it is known to be thickening in the west, it is thinning in the north. The mass balance of the East Antarctic ice sheet is thought by Davis and others (2005) to be positive on the basis of the change in satellite-altimetry measurements made between 1992 and 2003. Measurement of changes in area and mass balance of the Antarctic ice sheet was given a very high priority in recommendations by the Polar Research Board of the National Research Council (1986), in subsequent recommendations by the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) (1989, 1993), and by the National Science Foundation's (1990) Division of Polar Programs. On the basis of these recommendations, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) decided that the archive of early 1970s Landsat 1, 2, and 3 Multispectral Scanner (MSS) images of Antarctica and the subsequent repeat coverage made possible with Landsat and other satellite images provided an excellent means of documenting changes in the cryospheric coastline of Antarctica (Ferrigno and Gould, 1987). The availability of this information provided the impetus for carrying out a comprehensive analysis of the glaciological features of the coastal regions and changes in ice fronts of Antarctica (Swithinbank, 1988; Williams and Ferrigno, 1988). The project was later modified to include Landsat 4 and 5 MSS and Thematic Mapper (TM) images (and in some areas Landsat 7 Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) images), RADARSAT images, aerial photography, and other data where available, to compare changes that occurred during a 20- to 25- or 30-year time interval (or longer where data were available, as in the Antarctic Peninsula). The results of the analysis are being used to produce a digital database and a series of USGS Geologic Investigations Series Maps (I-2600) (Williams and others, 1995; Swithinbank and others, 2003a,b, 2004; Ferrigno and others, 2002, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, and in press; and Williams and Ferrigno, 2005) (available online at http://www.glaciers.er.usgs.gov).

The S-R issue: its status in behavior analysis and in Donahoe and Palmer's learning and complex behavior.  

PubMed Central

The central focus of this essay is whether the effect of reinforcement is best viewed as the strengthenng of responding or the strengthening of the environmental control of responding. We make the argument that adherence to Skinner's goal of achieving a moment-to-moment analysis of behavior compels acceptance of the latter view. Moreover, a thoroughgoing commitment to a moment-to-moment analysis undermines the fundamental distinction between the conditioning process instantiated by operant and respondent contingencies while buttressing the crucially important differences in their cumulative outcomes. Computer simulations informed by experimental analyses of behavior and neuroscience are used to illustrate these points. PMID:9132463

Level II scour analysis for Bridge 5 (IRASTH00010005) on Town Highway 1, crossing Lords Creek, Irasburg, Vermont  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Contraction scour for all modelled flows ranged from 2.4 to 4.6 ft. The worst-case contraction scour occurred at the 500-year discharge. Abutment scour ranged from 7.2 to 9.8 ft. The worst-case abutment scour also occurred at the 500-year discharge. Additional information on scour depths and depths to armoring are included in the section titled “Scour Results”. Scoured-streambed elevations, based on the calculated scour depths, are presented in tables 1 and 2. A cross-section of the scour computed at the bridge is presented in figure 8. Scour depths were calculated assuming an infinite depth of erosive material and a homogeneous particle-size distribution. It is generally accepted that the Froehlich equation (abutment scour) gives “excessively conservative estimates of scour depths” (Richardson and others, 1995, p. 47). Usually, computed scour depths are evaluated in combination with other information including (but not limited to) historical performance during flood events, the geomorphic stability assessment, existing scour protection measures, and the results of the hydraulic analyses. Therefore, scour depths adopted by VTAOT may differ from the computed values documented herein.

A redescription of the type species of the jumping spider genus Pseudomaevia (Araneae: Salticidae) from Lord Howe Island, Australia.

The genus Pseudomaevia Rainbow, 1920 presently includes three forms, P. cognata Rainbow, 1920, P. insulana Berland, 1942 and P. i. aorai Berland, 1942, all found in the western Pacific region (Platnick 2014). The type species, P. cognata, was only briefly described with some poor illustrations of the male, but no information was given on the female. This situation makes placing species in this genus, or the genus in a wider context, difficult. The present work describes and illustrates both sexes of the type species. The female genitalia are unusual in that the insemination duct joins the fertilization duct without any apparent spermatheca. The subfamilial placement of the genus is unknown. PMID:24943177

Lord Rutherford of Nelson, his 1908 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, and why he didn't get a second prize  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

'I have dealt with many different transformations with various periods of time, but the quickest that I have met was my own transformation in one moment from a physicist to a chemist.' Ernest Rutherford (Nobel Banquet, 1908) This article is about how Ernest Rutherford (1871-1937) got the 1908 Nobel Prize in Chemistry and why he did not get a second Prize for his subsequent outstanding discoveries in physics, specially the discovery of the atomic nucleus and the proton. Who were those who nominated him and who did he nominate for the Nobel Prizes? In order to put the Prize issue into its proper context, I will briefly describe Rutherford's whereabouts. Rutherford, an exceptionally gifted scientist who revolutionized chemistry and physics, was moulded in the finest classical tradition. What were his opinions on some scientific issues such as Einstein's photon, uncertainty relations and the future prospects for atomic energy? What would he have said about the 'Theory of Everything'?

Constructing a philosophy of chiropractic: evolving worldviews and modern foundation?  

PubMed Central

Objective The purpose of this article is to trace the foundations of DD Palmer's sense of self and philosophy of chiropractic to its sources in modern Western philosophy as well as current metatheories about modernity. Discussion DD Palmer's sense of self was indicative of a modern self. A modern self is characterized as a self that developed after the Western Enlightenment and must come to terms with the insights of modernity such as Cartesian dualism, Spinoza's substance, Rousseau's expressivism, and Kant's critiques. It is argued that Palmer's philosophy can be viewed as part of the this tradition alongside his involvement in the 19th century American metaphysical religious culture, which was itself a response to these challenges of the modern self of modernity. Conclusion Palmer's development of chiropractic and its philosophy was a reaction to the challenges and promises of modernity. PMID:22693479

Parameterisation of clastic sediments including benthic structures  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The sediment transport processes in the south-western Baltic Sea are predicted by means of a numerical model in the project DYNAS. There are two sediment parameters that influence the results of modelling remarkably: critical shear stress velocity and bottom roughness. This paper presents the way how to parameterise these factors and extrapolate them into the investigation area. The critical shear stress velocity is parameterised basing on grain size data, combining approximations after Hjulström [Hjulström, F., 1935: Studies in the morphological activity of rivers as illustrated by the river Fyris. Geological Institution of University of Uppsala: Bulletin (25): 221-528.], Shields [Shields, A., 1936: Anwendung der Ähnlichkeits-Mechanik und der Turbulenzforschung auf die Geschiebebewegung. Mitteilungen der Preussischen Versuchsanstalt für Wasserbau und Schiffahrt (26): 26 pp.] and Bohling [Bohling, B., 2003: Untersuchungen zur Mobilität natürlicher und anthropogener Sedimente in der Mecklenburger Bucht. unpublished doctoral thesis, Mathematisch-Naturwissenschaftliche Fakultät, Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-Universität Greifswald/Germany, 156 pp.]. The roughness length, in the case of absence of macro zoo-benthos and their structures, is parameterised basing on grain size too employing Soulsby [Soulsby, R.L., 1997: Dynamics of Marine Sands: a Manual for Practical Applications. London, Thomas Telford Publications. 249 pp.], Nielsen [Nielsen, P., 1983: Analytical determination of nearshore wave height variation due to refraction shoaling and friction. Coastal Engineering 7, 233-251.] and Yalin [Yalin, M.S., 1977: Mechanics of Sediment Transport. Pergamon Press, New York. 298 pp.]. No equivalent simple parameterisations for biologically caused bed roughness exist. Here, findings of Friedrichs [Friedrichs, M., 2004: Flow-induced effects of macro zoo-benthic structures on the near-bed sediment transport. Dissertation, Universität Rostock, 80 S.] and estimations by the DYNAS biologists group were combined in order to derive roughness lengths from abundance measurements of four previously selected key species which represent the originators of the dominating benthic structures at the sea floor in the south-western Baltic Sea. Critical shear stress velocity and bed roughness are known at few sample sites only. They were extrapolated into the larger investigation area using a proxy-target concept. The mean near bottom milieu (bathymetry, median grain size, salinity, oxygen) which was derived using results from numerical modelling serves as the proxy. Since the milieu parameters are measured at the sampling sites for which the target parameters have been determined, a combined hierarchical and supervised classification was employed to transfer the local knowledge into the unknown investigation area.

(Preliminary work on the environmental impact statement for the US Antarctic Program)  

SciTech Connect

Oak Ridge National Laboratory is preparing an environmental impact statement for the US Antarctic Program (USAP), which is operated for the National Science Foundation. This trip was a site visit to two USAP facilities: the R/V Polar Duke and Palmer Station. The Polar Duke is a 219-foot ice-strengthened vessel used as a research platform and for transportation. Palmer Station is a research base on Anvers Island near the Antarctic Peninsula. Environmental impacts include air emissions from diesel engines, discharges of untreated wastewater, the potential for spills of fuel and hazardous chemicals, and the attraction of tourists to the Palmer vicinity. Recommendations for minimizing impacts will be made in the environmental impact statement.

Sister outsider: an enduring vision embracing myself, my sister and the 'other'.  

PubMed

This piece reflects on and reacts to Audre Lorde's critique of racism within Lesbian communities. One purpose of the article is to honor and rescue Lorde's wonderful insight into the power of words when uttered and shared by women, as well as her ideas about differences and connections that exist between Black and white feminisms. Lorde's insistence on a 'sisterhood,' which embraces the 'other' and ourselves at the same time, is a recurrent thought throughout this paper. The article is also firmly grounded in the author's own experience of alienation and racism in the European context of Women's Studies. The second purpose of this position piece is to offer practical suggestions for how to keep Lesbian Studies alive. PMID:17954454

Gastrointestinal Helminths of Magpies (Pica pica), Rooks (Corvus frugilegus) and Carrion Crows (Corvus corone) in Mazandaran Province, North of Iran  

PubMed Central

Background Corvidae is a cosmopolitan family of oscine birds including crows, rooks, magpies, jays, chough, and ravens. These birds are migratory species, especially in the shortage of foods, so they can act like vectors for a wide range of microorganisms. They live generally in temperate climates and in a very close contact with human residential areas as well as poultry farms. There is no available information in the literature concerning the parasitic infections of these three species of corvidae in Mazandaran Province, northern Iran, so this study was conducted to clarify this. Methods As there are three species of corvid birds in Mazandaran Province, 106 birds including 79 magpies, 11 rooks, and 16 carrion crows were examined between winter 2007 and spring 2008 at post mortem for gastrointestinal helminths. The helminths were drawn and identified morphologically in the Laboratory of Parasitology, Islamic Azad University, Science and Research Branch, Tehran and also partly in the School of Public Health, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, based on the reference books and identification keys like Soulsby, Khalil et al. and Anderson et al. Results Four species of nematodes, 2 species of cestodes, 1 species of trematodes and 1 species of acanthocephalans were identified in these three corvid species. Conclusion Five species of the helminths are identified for the first time in Iran, and the acanthocephalan species is new host record for rooks. It is clear that these corvid birds have diverse range of helminths and can act as carriers for infecting the domestic fowls. PMID:22347286

The chiropractic heritage of Paul Caster: magnetic healer.  

PubMed

Magnetic healers were a phenomenon in America's heartland, from Iowa, Kansas, Missouri in Illinois in the late 1860s. Three noted magnetics in this region were Paul Caster, Andrew Still and Daniel Palmer; the first and third would have a chiropractic legacy, while Dr. Andrew Taylor Still would found osteopathy. This is the story of the chiropractic heritage from Paul Caster via his son, Jacob, to his grandson, Charles E. Caster, D.C. Magnetic healing in this family was considered by Paul to be a divine gift, while Still and Palmer would be rejected by the clergy and believed their skills could be learned, thus passed on.

Chaos and Shadowing Lemma for Autonomous Systems of Infinite Dimensions  

E-print Network

For finite-dimensional maps and periodic systems, Palmer rigorously proved Smale horseshoe theorem using shadowing lemma in 1988. For infinite-dimensional maps and periodic systems, such a proof was completed by Steinlein and Walther in 1990, and Henry in 1994. For finite-dimensional autonomous systems, such a proof was accomplished by Palmer in 1996. For infinite-dimensional autonomous systems, the current article offers such a proof. First we prove an Inclination Lemma to set up a coordinate system around a pseudo-orbit. Then we utilize graph transform and the concept of persistence of invariant manifold, to prove the existence of a shadowing orbit.
