first_imgConsistent diel patterns in foraging depths have been recorded in several avian predators which feed on pelagic prey, but nothing is known about such effects in bottom feeding seabirds. In the underwater environment, illumination is influenced primarily by water depth. Thus a predator’s ability to exploit feeding areas located in deep water could, theoretically, be constrained by light availability. We investigated the effects of the diel light cycle on the diving behaviour of 2 species of bottom feeding seabird: the blue-eyed shag Phalacrocorax atriceps and the European shag P. aristotelis. Time-based data loggers were attached to 22 blue-eyed shags and 21 European shags and used to obtain detailed and concurrent records of foraging conditions in terms of depth and illumination during the chick-rearing period. Both species were exclusively diurnal feeders. There were marked differences in mean foraging depth and foraging illumination between individual birds (blue-eyed shag: ranges 3.2 to 73.3 m and -0.3 to 2.0 log10 lx; European shag: 8.5 to 34.6 m and 0.9 to 2.0 log10 lx). Superimposed on this variation was a consistent effect whereby individuals significantly modified their diving behaviour in response to the diel light cycle, in accord with the prediction that foraging depths would be maximised when ambient illumination was highest. However, it appeared that individuals did not fully exploit the potential of this diel effect since, although foraging depths in the middle of the day were generally deeper, the associated illumination was higher than that experienced during shallower dives made earlier or later in the day. Nevertheless, we believe that diel effects can play an important role in shaping the foraging behaviour of bottom feeding, avian predators.last_img read more

first_imgEstate agents are being offered a free viewings service following a deal struck between industry supplier FocalAgent and Zoopla, which both organisations say may become essential as Covid restrictions are tightened across the UK.Zoopla’s member agents will be offered free no-frills accounts on FocalAgent.Described by Zoopla as a pilot, it is for selected agents only – which The Negotiator understands means those who are not already FocalAgent customers.“By enjoying free access to the Smart Viewing platform, agents can provide home movers with a best-in-class virtual viewing experience, and an alternative to physical viewings, which is crucial when the threat of Covid means that many home movers and agents may be hesitant to tour a property in person,” says Andy Marshall, Zoopla’s Chief Commercial Officer.The offering requires agents to use their existing photography supplied with the listing to drive the virtual viewing, or the option to create a DIY 360 tour experience from these using the Vieweet app, which is also free to Zoopla agents.Lee Wainwright (left), CEO at FocalAgent and until earlier this year was Purplebricks’ MD in the UK, says: “We know that estate agencies are people businesses and we’ve created technology that allows for virtual viewings to be controlled by the agent so the consumers gets the best possible experience which achieves two things.“Firstly, it increases the genuine interest of a potential tenant or buyer who has the opportunity to ask the questions pertinent to them and their situation.“Secondly, Smart Viewing reduces – and in some cases can replace – the need for physical viewings.”Interested agents can sign up here.Lee Wainwright Andy Marshall virtual viewings FocalAgent Zoopla October 16, 2020Nigel LewisOne commentAndrew Stanton, CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist 16th October 2020 at 7:58 amIs it then a hop and a skip to vendor self listing? Will Zoopla be going all in – upping the ante with the biggest game of property portal poker now looming? Agency models and portal platform models are ‘pivoting daily’ who will dare to break the real estate taboo in the UK? In other parts of the world portals allow vendor listing on the same portals.I am all for technology replacing paper and legacy systems, having recently had two market appraisals, by so called local professional agents, one showed me comparables of properties unlike my own, the other did not even send a marketing report.Having sold in a day with using a proper agent I worked alongside 30-years ago, who runs a traditional and flourishing agency where the consumer is at the heart of the business, I can see that maybe huge chunks of boring groundhog processes can just be done by machines, allowing consummate professionals even more time to engage with their client bank.More power to Lee Wainwright and Zoopla, time to cut through and streamline front end processes.Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?

first_imgHMAS Toowoomba has intercepted a vessel carrying approximately 388 kilograms of heroin in international waters off the east coast of Africa.The drug seizure on 17 November 2014 was part of a determined multi-national campaign to disrupt drug smuggling in the Indian Ocean, profits from which provide funding for known terrorist organisations.The heroin, with an estimated Australian street value of $155 million, was subsequently destroyed.Toowoomba’s Commanding Officer, Commander Catherine Hayes, said the successful drug interdiction was a direct result of excellent intelligence and a well-executed search plan developed in collaboration with Australia’s international partners in the Combined Maritime Force.Commander Hayes said:Our Pakistani colleagues at Combined Task Force 150 and Combined Maritime Force worked with us to develop a plan that resulted in Toowoomba successfully recovering the heroin.The Combined Maritime Force teams ashore and on Toowoomba provided key pieces of the puzzle that led to this intercept.Lieutenant Neil Partridge, one of Toowoomba’s boarding officers, said the team executed an efficient boarding and search of the suspect vessel.The whole team came together to achieve a fantastic result. The smugglers go to considerable lengths to conceal their cargo and it is a whole ship effort to exploit intelligence and really focus our search efforts.This is the second significant drug haul for Toowoomba after the warship seized more than 5.6 tonnes of cannabis resin worth $280 million hidden onboard a dhow in the same region on 18 September.Toowoomba is currently deployed as part of Operation MANITOU, Australia’s contribution to the international effort to promote maritime security, stability and prosperity in the Middle East Region.[mappress mapid=”14498″]Press release, Image: Australian Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today HMAS Toowoomba Stops 388 Kilos of Heroin off Africa View post tag: africa Share this article View post tag: Naval View post tag: 388 View post tag: HMAS Toowoomba View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Kilos Authorities View post tag: Australia HMAS Toowoomba Stops 388 Kilos of Heroin off Africa View post tag: Navy View post tag: Asia-Pacific View post tag: Heroin View post tag: Stops November 20, 2014last_img read more

first_img“All of us are keen to go back to our regular jobs. Not teaching, not participating in departmental life, and not examining is not an easy choice to make. But Universities UK (UUK) which represents the Vice Chancellors of British universities has given us no choice.”President of Oxford’s UCU branch, Garrick Taylor, told Cherwell: “No staff member takes this kind of action other than as a last resort and we regret any distress that this causes students, but UUK are now acting contrary to the wishes of Oxford and many other universities and are unnecessarily prolonging the dispute by not finding a solution that recognises that universities are willing to take more risk than was factored into USS’s last valuation. Oxford needs to take a firmer hand with UUK to help bring this dispute to an end.“The University will have contingency plans for when exams can’t go ahead and these will have to be enacted if the industrial action isn’t averted by UUK offering a solution that can be accepted by all parties.“We hope for all involved that UUK start listening to staff members and management alike, so this damaging dispute can come to a swift end. We would also like to publicly thank Oxford’s students for the support they have given us, the fantastic solidarity, and warm drinks on the picket line. We’ve also already had students tell us that they will remain fully supportive if assessments are hit but we do hope that this will be over before that happens.”The resignations come as Oxford staff prepare to return to work on Monday, after 14 days of escalating strike action since Thursday 22 February. Further strikes are also planned to hit the exam and assessment period, with exact dates expected to be announced in the next week.A spokesperson for the Univerisity said: “On Friday we set up a page for students with FAQs about the strikes and where to go for further information.“As you will see from the FAQs, we expect all exams to go ahead as scheduled and will put plans in place to ensure they go ahead if necessary.” “The really negative effects of the proposed change are twofold. First there will be a huge reduction of income in retirement for many staff, some of whom may lose half their income in retirement. Second while at the moment they/we have a reasonable idea of what we will retire on, the new scheme is much more risky. “But the strike and other action has had some positive consequences too. Many people find a sense of community and mutual support on the picket lines that they don’t feel in their workplace. Best of all the support we have had from students is fantastic. The NUS has been great, but also we are constantly visited by individual students who take part in demonstrations, argue on our behalf with senior managers, and bring hot drinks when it is really freezing. Woolf also stressed that the pension dispute is just one of several grievances which are motivating the ongoing industrial action. “Casualization is a big issue, with a huge amount of teaching in older universities being done by graduates students and others on hourly rates. Many contracts are for 8 or 10 months, so some staff are laid off over the summer. Workloads are high, mental health problems are more and more common (as they are for students). All that has fed the anger many feel.“All of us are keen to go back to our regular jobs. Not teaching, not participating in departmental life, and not examining is not an easy choice to make.” “Worse still it hits younger academics harder than older, junior academics harder than senior and women (on average) harder than men. This is because so much depends on how many years each member contributes, and how big their salaries are.“I am in my fifties and have a good salary and what I have paid in to date on the old scheme will still give me a good income. Someone who started later than me, or took a career break, or is still on a relatively low salary, will be much less lucky.” External examiners are resigning in a further show of industrial action against proposed pension reforms, potentially threatening upcoming final exams.The move, designed to cause maximum disruption, could lead to exams being postponed leaving students unable to complete their degrees and graduate on time.It follows the release of a University and Colleges Union (UCU) statement calling for external examiners to resign from their positions at the 65 universities hit by strike action, including Oxford.As is common practice, Oxford appoints examiners from other universities to their examination boards to standardise assessments across the country.Through agreeing to set questions, moderating exam results, and ensuring that assessment procedures are rigorous, Oxford’s guidance documents explain that they ensure “the soundness of the procedures used to reach final agreed marks”.UCU’s Secretary General, Sally Hunt, said that she hoped the call for resignations would motivate the “universities’ representatives to get back round the table with us as soon as possible to get this dispute resolved,” as “no student or university will want the quality of their degree called into question”.The Director of the Institute of Classical Studies in London, Greg Woolf, was one of Oxford’s external examiners for upcoming finals, but has now resigned following UCU’s request.He told Cherwell: “I am really sad to be stepping down as external for taught postgraduate programmes in Ancient History at Oxford, the university where I did my first degree and where I later taught for 8 years. “I am doing so at the request of UCU as part of its campaign of industrial action to preserve the existing pension scheme that most UK academics, academic librarians, many administrators, archivists, technicians and other support staff are enrolled in.Just resigned as external examiner for taught programmes @UniofOxford— Greg Woolf (@Woolf_Greg) March 16, 2018last_img read more

first_imgThis narrative of an illegitimate democracy was arguablywhat motivated the murderer of Jo Cox, who is alleged to have shouted “this isfor Britain” before carrying out his attack. The murder, which took place days before the EU referendum,was a great shock to both the country and to the world. This was the first timein over 25 years that a sitting British MP had been killed. I ask Smith whetherthe murder was a freak occurrence, or evidence of a much wider phenomenon. “Whathappened to Jo Cox is not a one-off. There has already been a plot to murderRosie Cooper MP earlier this year which was stopped by the police.” Jacquirefers to the plot by far-right extremist who purchased a sword online andresearched how to cut the jugular artery before his plans were thwarted by aninformant. Renshaw was sentenced to life in May 2019. It is especially chillingto think that there is a real risk of future attacks. “There is considerable evidence of a growth in intimidation,death threats and abuse. The business model incentivises this – there is apremium for agitation.” I meet Jacqui at the Big Tent Ideas Festival, a day of political debate and discussion with MPs, academics and journalists held in Mudchute in South London. The former Home Secretary was appointed chair of the Jo Cox Foundation in May 2019. As is customary at all political events these days, before entering the venue I have to pass through a thorough security check, where a metal detector is passed up and down me, the contents of my backpack emptied out , each item individually inspected – a reminder of how much effort is now needed just to ensure MPs are able to engage with the public in safety. Jacqui is speaking at a panel discussion on the abuse facingthose in public life, alongside Angela Eagle MP and Lord Jonathan Evans. Amongthe ideas discussed on the panel was  Eagle’sproposal for an outright ban on all anonymous social media accounts,  given that these are disproportionatelyresponsible for the proliferation of abuse. I ask Jacqui whether that’s somethingshe supports: She seems reticent to endorse a full ban on anonymity. But, I ask Jacqui, while social media has given a platformto those who wish to abuse MPs online, what difference would it make to shutthem down? The people would still exist, they would still hold and express thesame views, only it would be less visible to the rest of us as they gounderground. The volume of abuse directed at parliamentarians hasballooned in recent years. Research by Amnesty International on online abuse in2017 revealed the full extent of the problem. In the period January to June2017, 8,121 out of 140,057 ofall tweets mentioning @HackneyAbbott, the Twitter Handle of Diane Abbott MP wereclassified as abusive. Women and minority MPs are disproportionately affected:the shadow Home Secretary receives almost half of all abusive tweets directedat women MPs. Does the severity of the risk call for strong legislativechange to mitigate the risk of further violence? Smith is clear that the Jo Coxfoundation is not in the business of lobbying for changes to the law, or tomake party-political points: “We don’t want changes in legislation but rather ajoint standard agreed between all parties. The Foundation has three objectives;local communities that are engaged, cohesive and able to contribute to what’sgoing on; a national politics that is lively but also respectful and developinga fairer world.” A message which I think few can disagree with.center_img “What shocks me is the way in which verbal and physicalabuse is so prominent – I’m really worried about that. I’ve spoken to peoplewho say they want to step down. People who changed their roles because ofthreats and intimidation. People say it prevents them from coming forward.” Jacqui tells me the visibility of abusive online messages iscausing those who work or want to work in politics to reconsider. Some  rudimentary Twitter research confirms that theproblem persists. [mi3] Justin September 2019 I found hundreds of abusive Tweets directed at Diane Abbott,who was called a ‘traitor’ 104 times, ‘fat’ 27 times, ‘ugly’ 20 times, ‘cow’ 18times, ‘twat’ 18 times, ‘bitch’ 14 times, ‘pig’ 10 times. I also found over 100tweets in the last 3 days alone calling Diane ‘thick’. It’s quite shocking tosee how brazenly people are prepared to issue insults and verbal attacks ontheir representatives – I’m minded not to quote several full length abusive tweetsas Amnesty have done. “There might be circumstances like whistleblowing whereanonymity is justified,” the former Home Secretary says. “What is not justifiedis hiding behind anonymity to commit criminal acts.” “Everybody has the right to demonstrate and protest – thatis a healthy thing but not when it undermines the democratic system. One of thethings identified is a view that the democratic system is illegitimate.” “It’s not just that social media is what people sayface-to-face. Social media radicalises: it develops the attitudes not justfacilitates communication.” Smith tells me.last_img read more

first_imgFancy bread remains as far from definition as ever. The time has arrived to take action, and fancy bread ought to be put once and for all out of the region of anomalies and made thoroughly intelligible both to producer and consumer.The general progress of the nation to higher levels of dietetic luxury undoubtedly opens new avenues for the baker.The progress of the baker is undoubtedly likely to be rapid in respect to the fact that the demand for finer and much nicer flavoured bread is sure to be an ever-increasing thing. The taste for much improved bread is spreading among the classes.A glance at the menus of any American boarding house will show at once that, in bread, the transatlantic baker has created quite a new branch of dietetic fine art.last_img

The current members of the Committee are: Lord (Paul) Bew, Chairman, Rt Hon Dame Margaret Beckett DBE MP (Labour), Sheila Drew Smith OBE, Simon Hart MP (Conservative), Dr Jane Martin CBE, Jane Ramsey, Monisha Shah and Rt Hon Lord (Andrew) Stunell OBE (Liberal Democrat). Lord Bew, Chair, Committee on Standards in Public Life said: The independent Committee on Standards in Public Life advises the Prime Minister on ethical standards across the whole of public life in the UK. It is not a Parliamentary Committee. It monitors and reports on issues relating to the standards of conduct of all public office holders. This is a strong, cross-party set of proposals from the working group, which offer a standard of protection and independent support in line with those that the best employers offer their staff. We welcome the strengthening of the roles of the independent Parliamentary Commissioners for Standards and House Committees, and, for the first time, a shared and binding behaviour code. For these proposals to fully address unacceptable behaviour, they must be rooted in the leadership, culture and practice of the House. This report is an important and welcome first step.

first_imgPhil Lesh & Friends | Brooklyn Bowl & The Capitol Theatre | 10/30-31/17 | Photos by Bob Schultz Coming off an energetic and magical sold-out show at the Brooklyn Bowl on Mischief Night the evening prior, for Halloween, The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York, hosted Phil Lesh and an at-capacity crowd for the most anticipated show of his recent East Coast run. The Grateful Dead bassist was joined by The Terrapin Family Band (Graeme Lesh, Ross James, Alex  Koford, though minus Jason Crosby), Nicki Bluhm, Robert Randolph, and longtime friend and keyboardist Rob Barraco. The Preservation Hall Jazz Band also joined in on the Halloween festivities as well, though the New Orleans-based ensemble missed out on the previous night’s Brooklyn Bowl show due to the venue’s smaller stage.Phil Lesh Awarded Key To The Village Of Port Chester At Capitol Theatre Halloween ShowTo celebrate Halloween, the band—mostly dressed up in Day of the Dead makeup save Robert Randolph, who donned a pink bunny suit for the occasion (major props to Randolph as well who must have been suffocating on stage)—offered up a performance full of Halloween treats and tasteful covers. Hundreds of fans dressed up to party, and even most of the venue’s staff were in costume. Beautiful intricate pumpkins decorated the stage, and giant eyeballs floated down from the ceiling. With the atmosphere set, the band came to treat fans to a beautiful night of music.The music started with the upbeat crowd sing-along “The Golden Road (To Unlimited Devotion)” with some tasty passionate keys from Barraco and extended guitar jams from Ross and Graeme. After the classic “Stagger Lee”, Nicki Bluhm took us on a sweet and emotional cover of Marvin Gaye’s “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)”. Next, the beautifully-written “Let The Mountain Be My Home” segued into to the quintessential Grateful Dead Halloween song “Candyman”.“How Sweet It Is”“Candyman”A cover of Hank Ballard’s “Tore Up Over You” was up next and followed by a grungy rendition of Neil Young’s “Old Man”. In the wake of Tom Petty’s recent passing, the ensemble paid homage to the iconic musician with a rendition of “The Apartment Song”, which was made particularly sweet by the steel guitar offerings from Robert Randolph. Ending on a high, the bouncy, upbeat “Sugar Magnolia” ended the first set with a scream.“Old Man”“The Apartment Song” (Tom Petty) > “Sugar Magnolia”What would a Halloween show be without werewolves and monsters? We certainly won’t know this year, as Phil Lesh’s second set opened with Warren Zevon’s “Werewolves of London”, and The Preservation Hall Jazz Band (PHJB) joined in to give the song a New Orleans howl. The ending lyrics of “Werewolves of London” were also changed to include “I saw Peter Shapiro standing out on the street, and his hands were perfect”, referring to the legendary promoter and owner of The Capitol Theatre and Brooklyn Bowl.PHJB stayed on the stage and joined in on Stephen Stills’ “Love The One You’re With”, which saw particularly soulful vocals from Nicki Bluhm and some smooth guitar playing and B-1 organ. Boris Pickett’s all-time classic “Monster Mash” gained new life and more depth with the addition of the PHJB and Robert Randolph’s steel pedal guitar. The crowd karaoke and PHJB’s time with the rest of the band continued during the stand-out renditions of a blazing “Fire on the Mountain” and delectable “Sugaree”.“Love The One You’re With”With the stage clear, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band led the crowd on a twenty-minute mini-set that also served as a master class on horns, showmanship, and real southern funk. Ben Jaffe (Bass/Tuba), Clint Maedgen (Sax), Ronell Johnson (Trombone), Water Harris (Drums), Kyle Roussel (Piano), and Branden Lewis (Trumpet) showed themselves as great musicians and entertainers, all the while giving some old tunes new life and energy.Phil Lesh and his stacked ensemble didn’t offer drums or space on Halloween night, instead returning with a haunting rendition of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Bad Moon Rising”, which was slowed down to one-third speed to open the group’s second set. Graeme’s goosebump-inducing singing and the addition of some magical harmonies and an extensive piano solo made the number a highlight of the show. The time-honored “Playing with the Band” was up next, which segued into “Mountains of the Moon” with Phil on lead vocals. The set ended with a rousing and spiritual “Uncle John’s Band”, before the group returned with the macabre “Sampson and Deliah” as a perfect encore to end Halloween in Port Chester.“Bad Moon Rising”“Uncle John’s Band”Thank you to YouTube user Sean Roche for capturing the videos of Phil Lesh’s Halloween spooktacular at The Capitol Theatre on Tuesday.

first_imgIRENA: Southeast Asia a prime market for renewable energy growth FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:Southeast Asia is a potential hotspot for renewable energy, yet the region has not met expectations because it lacks policy frameworks that would encourage investment, the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) told Reuters.Renewables across the world have typically been boosted by policies like price subsidies and guaranteed grid takeoff. In Southeast Asia, though, barring some exceptions such as in Thailand, support for renewables has been smaller, and the region lags far behind others in renewable output despite its potential, especially for solar, geothermal and wind power.Global renewable capacity, excluding hydro, has soared from under 100,000 megawatts (MW) in 2000 to more than 1 million MW in 2017, according to IRENA data. Only a tiny portion of that has come in Southeast Asia.Now, there are also efforts underway in Southeast Asia: The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) plans to generate 23 percent of its primary energy needs from renewables by 2025, up from just over 10 percent now. To help achieve that, ASEAN and IRENA signed an agreement this week to boost renewable investment and deployment.“I think the adoption of the 23 percent target is a very good step, but that needs to be translated now into policy actions,” said [IRENA’s director general Adnan] Amin. “Over the next decade, a total of $290 billion will have to be invested for Southeast Asia to reach its targets, a ten-fold increase on the annual investments we’re seeing today,” Amin said, speaking to Reuters while attending Singapore’s International Energy Week (SIEW).Amin said renewable investment, including in Southeast Asia, would receive a boost from “dramatic reductions in the cost of renewables.” Solar panel prices have crashed to under 50 cents per watt of electricity, from around $70 per watt in 1980 as technology and manufacturing efficiency have improved. At the same time, Amin said capital markets were starting to price carbon risks, raising the cost of fossil fuels. “Financial institutions have started to bail out from financing coal, so, cost of investments in coal will rise while cost of investments in renewables are decreasing,” Amin said.More: Southeast Asia’s renewables held back by policy inaction: IRENAlast_img read more
