As part of the scam, the scammers will show the victim their password in an attempt to convince them that they are a genuine threat. These appear to be passwords from some years ago and at this time there is no indication that the scammers have actually taken over any devices or made any recordings. It is more likely that they have obtained a list of ‘older’ email addresses and passwords and sent out a large number of emails over the last few days.PSNI have urged people who receive these emails not to interact or reply to the scammers, but to forward details on to Action Fraud and contact police.Action Fraud can be contacted via their website www.actionfraud.police.uk or by phoning 0300 123 2040. Police can be contacted on the non-emergency number 101.

first_imgThe continental rise west of the Antarctic Peninsula includes a number of large sediment mounds interpreted as contourite drifts. Cores from six sediment drifts spanning some 650 km of the margin and 4° of latitude have been dated using chemical and isotopic tracers of palaeoproductivity and diatom biostratigraphy. Interglacial sedimentation rates range from 1.1 to 4.3 cm/ka. Glacial sedimentation rates range from 1.8 to 13.5 cm/ka, and decrease from proximal to distal sites on each drift. Late Quaternary sedimentation was cyclic, with brown, biogenic, burrowed mud containing ice-rafted debris (IRD) in interglacials and grey, barren, laminated mud in glacials. Foraminiferal intervals occur in interglacial stages 5 and 7 but not in the Holocene. Processes of terrigenous sediment supply during glacial stages differed; meltwater plumes were more important in stages 2–4, turbidity currents and ice-rafting in stage 6. The terrigenous component shows compositional changes along the margin, more marked in glacials. The major oxides Al2O3 and K2O are higher in the southwest, and CaO and TiO2 higher in the northeast. There is more smectite among the clay minerals in the northeast. Magnetic susceptibility varies along and between drifts. These changes reflect source variations along the margin. Interglacial sediments show less clear trends, and their IRD was derived from a wider area. Downslope processes were dominant in glacials, but alongslope processes may have attained equal importance in interglacials. The area contrasts with the East Antarctic continental slope in the SE Weddell Sea, where ice-rafting is the dominant process and where interglacial sedimentation rates are much higher than glacial. The differences in glacial setting and margin physiography can account for these contrasts.last_img read more


first_imgOcean Energy Europe and Copernicus Marine Service have officially launched a new partnership looking to help European ocean energy companies create export market opportunities.The partnership is expected to improve access to the data obtained from the Copernicus satellite network for the ocean energy industry, with a strong focus on export markets.It will also help inform the next iteration of Copernicus Marine Service for the ocean energy sector by leveraging hands-on knowledge from the industry, according to Ocean Energy Europe.This will benefit the European ocean energy industry by providing better global resource assessment, more precise weather forecasting, and support environmental impact assessment.Rémi Gruet, CEO of Ocean Energy Europe said: “Precise data such as current speed is paramount to assessing electricity production and reducing costs. This partnership will increase interaction between the industry and Copernicus Marine Service ensuring the program meets the needs of the ocean energy sector.“The focus on export markets will help build on Europe’s technology leadership by facilitating projects outside of Europe.”The partnership will last up to three years.last_img read more

Tyler Ennis crossing his arms. B.J. Johnson holding his hands behind his back.With each progressive click, Roberson let out a chuckle. His smile widened.And when the roll was through, Roberson took a basketball in each hand and extended his arms to each side, showcasing his 7-foot-1 wing span.Syracuse fans around the country share the excitement that Roberson emitted. The Orange’s freshman class ranks 11th in the country and will make its preseason debut when the Orange hosts Holy Family in a scrimmage on Friday at 7 p.m.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textEnnis is expected to see far and away the most court time of any of the freshmen as Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim expects Ennis will play 38 minutes per game this year. Roberson and Johnson are in line behind a slew of talented frontcourt stars including C.J. Fair. Patterson may be the fourth guard for SU behind Ennis, Trevor Cooney and Michael Gbinije. And center Chinonso Obokoh is redshirting.“We don’t really have any plan as of right now in terms of playing time,” Boeheim said. “That works itself out usually. We’ll see how things progress, but it’s important to have depth and we have good depth at the forward and center positions.”Additional preseason practice time allotted by the NCAA this year has helped prepare the freshmen to acclimate to college play more quickly. Boeheim estimated the Orange is holding an additional 21 preseason practices this year, in addition to its four-scrimmage Canada tour in August.Roberson, who was not academically cleared until Sept. 5, was the only player unable to make the trip.“It helps us a lot,” Ennis said. “We have different classes of guys. We have some seniors, juniors, and a lot of freshmen so being able to practice earlier, along with the Canada trip, is going to help us a lot getting everyone comfortable.”Ennis showcased his smooth ball handling and nifty passing ability at Orange Madness on Oct. 18, flashing the point guard play that made him the No. 5 point guard recruit in the country.Teammates and coaches have been immediately impressed with his poise and leadership, already taking command of the team without hesitation.“He impressed me a lot, even in Canada, with the passes he makes,” center DaJuan Coleman said. “He is real smooth. He makes all the right plays.”For the rest of the freshmen, their roles are less defined. Patterson is working his way into the rotation while Roberson — who said at media day he was still growing accustomed to his teammates — and Johnson have been matching up with Fair and Jerami Grant in practice.Stuck behind the pair of athletic wings, they’ll likely be used sparingly, if at all, in Boeheim’s regular rotation.“B.J. has had really good practices thus far,” Boeheim said. “He’s one of the better shooters on our team. He’s very long and has a ton of athleticism. At the same time, he’s continuing to learn and progress as we go.”Patterson and Ennis agreed the biggest adjustment to the college game has been the speed of play, but at Orange Madness both appeared comfortable. Johnson and Roberson looked quick on the wing.And Patterson and Johnson participated in the post-scrimmage dunk contest, showcasing their athletic ability.On Friday, the Orange’s highly touted freshman class will get its next chance to reveal its potential.Get your cameras ready.
