Understanding the NOy budget at high latitudes is important for our knowledge of present-day clean air chemistry and essential for reliable interpretation of existing ice core nitrate data. However, measurements of NOy components at high latitudes have been limited, and no measurements have attempted to address the budget of NOy. Here we report on a campaign conducted in the austral summer of 1997 at the German Antarctic research station, Neumayer, with first Antarctic measurements for NOy in addition to light alkyl nitrates, NO, HNO3 and p−NO3−. Inorganic nitrate has generally been assumed to be the dominant component of NOy in Antarctica, although this idea has not previously been tested. However, our results show that for this coastal station, methyl nitrate was present in much higher concentration than inorganic nitrate (median CH3ONO2 = 38 pptv, HNO3 = 5 pptv). It has been suggested earlier that some alkyl nitrates might have a marine source. If this suggestion is correct, the implication arises that the oceans are an important source of NOy to the Antarctic troposphere and that their role in determining nitrate concentrations in ice must be considered.
A compilation of nitrate (NO(3)(-)) data from Greenland has shown that recent NO(3)(-) concentrations reveal a temperature dependence similar to that seen in Antarctica. Except for sites with very low accumulation rates, lower temperatures tend to lead to higher NO(3)(-) concentrations preserved in the ice. Accumulation rate, which is closely linked to temperature, might influence the concentrations preserved in snow as well, but its effect cannot be separated from the temperature imprint. Processes involved in NO(3)(-) deposition are discussed and shown to be temperature- and/or accumulation-rate-dependent. Apart from scavenging of nitric acid (HNO(3)) during formation of precipitation, uptake of HNO(3) onto the ice crystal’s surface during and after precipitation seems to contribute further to the NO(3)(-) concentrations found in surface snow. Post-depositional loss of NO(3)(-) from the top snow layers is caused by release of HNO(3) and by photolysis of NO(3)(-). It is suggested that photolysis accounts for considerable losses at sites with very low accumulation rates. Depending on the site characteristic, and given that the temperature and accumulation-rate dependence is quantified, it should be possible to infer changes in atmospheric HNO(3) concentrations.
Metapelitic rock samples from the NE Shackleton Range, Antarctica, include garnet with contrasting zonation patterns and two age spectra. Garnet porphyroblasts in K-rich kyanite-sillimanite- staurolite-garnet-muscovite-biotite schists from Lord Nunatak show prograde growth zonation, and give Sm-Nd garnet, U-Pb monazite and Rb-Sr muscovite ages of 518 +/- 5, 514 +/- 1 and 499 +/- 12 Ma, respectively. Geothermobarometry and P-T pseudo-section calculations in the model system CaO-Na2O-K2O- TiO2-MnO-FeO-MgO-Al2O3-SiO2-H2O are consistent with garnet growth during prograde heating from 540degreesC/7 kbar to 650degreesC/7.5 kbar, and partial resorption during a subsequent P-T decrease to <650degreesC at <6 kbar. All data indicate that rocks from Lord Nunatak were affected by a single orogenic cycle. In contrast, garnet porphyroblasts in K-poor kyanite-sillimanite- staurolite-garnet-cordierite-biotite-schists from Meade Nunatak show two growth stages and diffusion-controlled zonation. Two distinct age groups were obtained. Laser ablation plasma ionization multicollector mass spectrometry in situ analyses of monazite, completely enclosed by a first garnet generation, yield ages of c. 1700 Ma, whereas monazite grains in open garnet fractures and in most matrix domains give c. 500 Ma. Both age groups are also obtained by U-Pb thermal ionization mass spectrometry analyses of matrix monazite and zircon, which fall on a discordia with lower and upper intercepts at 502 +/- 1 and 1686 +/- 2 Ma, respectively. Sm-Nd garnet dating yields an age of 1571 +/- 40 Ma and Rb-Sr biotite analyses give an age of 504 +/- 1 Ma. Integrated geochronological and petrological data provide evidence that rocks from Meade Nunatak underwent a polymetamorphic Barrovian-type metamorphism: (1) garnet 1 growth and subsequent diffusive garnet annealing between 1700 and 1570 Ma; (2) garnet 2 growth during the Ross Orogeny at c. 500 Ma. During the final orogenic event the rocks experienced peak P-T conditions of about 650degreesC/7.0 kbar and a retrograde stage at c. 575degreesC/4.0 kbar.
FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail Evansville Colleges React To Kavanaugh/Ford Senate Judiciary HearingSEPTEMBER 28TH, 2018 CHRIS MASTROBUONO EVANSVILLE, INDIANAIn front of a Senate Judiciary Committee, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford faced questions about her alleged sexual assault by Judge Brett Kavanaugh during a high school party back in 1982.Judge Brett Kavanaugh denies all allegations and spoke out in his defense. Allegations of sexual assault were the center of a historic hearing in Washington.Dr. Robert Dion, a political science professor at University of Evansville said, “We’re having another national discussion about how women are treated about whether we believe them or not when they were victims of misbehavior or sexual assault.”Dion says this hearing is part of a bigger societal issue. “Sadly enough this grilling of this woman who has come forward is an opportunity for Americans to reflect on whether we can do better as a society.”While the Senate determines if Dr. Ford’s allegations are in fact true. The future balance of the Supreme Court is in their hands.Dion says, “Clearly we want to be fair to all sides involved and the Senate is making a high-stakes decision so they want to be as fair as they can and hear from both sides.”Students we caught up with at the University of Southern Indiana agree vetting Kavanaugh is key to whether he will be confirmed.Marshall Gruber, a sophomore at USI said, “It’s certainly important to make sure we are nominating people to the supreme court that has integrity that we want to be judging other people on the merits of very important issues going forward but at the same time it’s really he said she said with not a whole lot of evidence.”Dion says it’s extremely rare and dangerous for someone to come out with false accusations.“If she would come forward and say something flatly false and demonstrably false for political reasons she’s really disrupting her life and possibly destroying her reputation the whole notion that this is cooked up for some political grand purpose seems a little bit far fetched. ”
The British Society of Baking’s Golden Jubilee Spring Conference, held at Food & Bake, will provide bakers with an insight into business issues affecting the whole of the industry. Speakers from Greggs, Tesco and Allied Bakeries will be among the roll call.On the Monday, Sir Michael Darrington, MD of Greggs, will speak at the conference, as well as Tony Reed, category director for bakery of Tesco, and Alex Waugh, director general of millers’ association Nabim.Sir Michael Darrington has been at the helm of Greggs for 23 years, during which time the Newcastle-based bakery firm has become the third biggest seller of sandwiches in the country with sales of bread and rolls reduced to just 9% of annual turnover. Sir Michael will give an insight into how Greggs continues to be successful through its people. As category director for bakery of Tesco, Tony Reed controls bakery in 1,800 stores in the UK. He first joined Tesco 28 years ago on his 15th birthday as a trolley boy and worked his way up to become a director. Brian Robinson, the new chief executive of Allied Bakeries, will compare the progress of the Australian baking industry with that of the UK. These speakers will be joined by Professor Christiani Jeya Henry, head of food science and human nutrition at Oxford Brookes University, and Royal Society visiting professor at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. A board member of the Food Standards Agency, Professor Henry will be sharing his thoughts on the glycaemic index and opportunities and challenges for the food industry.On the Tuesday, speakers include craft baker Chris Freeman, organiser of National Doughnut Week; Trevor Mooney, joint-MD of Chatwins in Nantwich; John Slattery of Slattery’s in Manchester; Alan Stuart from Dubbie Bakery in Fife; and John Waterfield of Waterfields. Interest in the event has been such that tickets for the gala dinner on Monday, March 20, are completely sold out. But limited tickets for the conference are still available. They cost £60 per day for members and £79 per day for non-members. For more information and to book tickets, visit www.foodandbake.com or call the BSB on tel: 0161 427 1772.
The Charity Commission, the independent regulator of charities in England and Wales, has opened a class statutory inquiry into The Martin Foundation (registered charity number 1110184), and The Collegiate Charitable Foundation (registered charity number 1012924). The inquiry was opened on 22 January 2018.The charities provide bursaries to enable students to attend independent primary and secondary schools; provide advertising, facilities and equipment for the schools, and assist the local community, however The Martin Foundation is not currently carrying out any activity.After receiving a complaint from the public and information from other regulators the Commission engaged with the charities in respect of a number of regulatory concerns. Our engagement established that there were clear and ongoing serious regulatory issues relating to the administration of the charities by the trustees. These included the management of conflicts of interest, protecting and properly accounting for the charities’ assets, and potential unauthorised trustee benefit.The inquiry is examining: Press office Email [email protected] In order to protect the assets of the charities, the Commission has issued orders to the trustees and the charities’ bank under section 76(3) of the Charities Act 2011. These are temporary orders and will be reviewed on a regular basis in line with normal procedures.Due to the seriousness of its regulatory concerns the Commission also appointed Geoff Carton-Kelly and Tom McLennan of FRP Advisory as joint interim managers of the charities on 13 August 2018.The interim managers are appointed with all the powers and duties of trustees and will act to the exclusion of the current charity trustees. These are temporary appointments and will be reviewed on a regular basis in line with normal procedures.It is the Commission’s policy, after it has concluded an inquiry, to publish a report detailing what issues the inquiry looked at, what actions were undertaken as part of the inquiry and what the outcomes were. Reports of previous inquiries by the Commission are available on GOV.UK.Notes to Editors The Charity Commission is the regulator of charities in England and Wales. To find out more about our work see the about us page on GOV.UK. Search for charities on our check charity tool. Section 46 of the Charities Act 2011 gives the Commission the power to institute inquiries. The opening of an inquiry gives the Commission access to a range of investigative, protective and remedial legal powers. The Interim Manager appointment is a temporary and protective power that will be reviewed at regular intervals. It will continue until the Commission makes a further Order for its variation or discharge.

Online advertised vacancies were down 163,900 in August to 3,990,600, according to The Conference Board Help Wanted OnLine (HWOL) Data Series released today. Vermont was down 400. The August drop follows a decline of 217,000 in July and a decrease of 100,000 in June. The Supply/Demand rate stands at 3.35, indicating there were just over 3 unemployed for every online advertised vacancy in July, the latest monthly data available for unemployment.”Following a very strong 1st Quarter (+763,000), labor demand has fallen off in the 2nd Quarter and into the 3rd Quarter (-456,000), reducing the earlier gains,” said June Shelp, Vice President at The Conference Board. Overall, 2011 is still showing a 308,000 increase in labor demand, but the average monthly gain this year (+38,000) is less than last year’s average monthly gain at this point (+62,000). The slowdown in labor demand is not good news for job-seekers in a number of occupations. Labor demand has stalled over the last few months, both for construction workers, where there are almost 19 unemployed job-seekers for every advertised position, and for production workers, where there are 8 unemployed for every vacancy.REGIONAL AND STATE HIGHLIGHTSIn August:Like the U.S., many States now have flat or downward trendsAll 4 regions see large drops in August; South experiences largest dropIn August, the Midwest posted the smallest decline, down 36,000, reflecting drops in all but one of its large States that were partially offset by increases in a number of the States with smaller populations. Missouri was the only large State to post an increase, up 1,100, after a combined decrease of 3,800 in June and July. Among the other large States, Illinois declined 11,500 in August following a similar drop in July. Next was Michigan with a drop of 7,200, more than twice its July decline. Ohio fell 5,800 after a drop of 6,400 in July. Minnesota was down 3,100, less than half of its July decline, while Wisconsinexperienced a slight decline of 1,200. Among the less populous States in the region, Iowa rose 1,500 andIndiana dropped 4,400 to a total of 63,800. North Dakota and South Dakota posted August gains of 1,000 and 2,500 respectively.In August, labor demand in the West was down by 37,900. The largest monthly drop in online advertised vacancies was in California, down 19,400 to a total of 440,400. Arizona posted a decline of 4,800, andColorado dropped 3,300. Washington State gained a mere 200. Other States in the West posting declines included Utah, down 2,900, Nevada, down 1,200, New Mexico, down 1,200, and Idaho, down 900.The Northeast was down 42,400. Among the large States in the region, Pennsylvania experienced the only gain, up 6,300, to 179,200. New York experienced a large loss of 20,900 to 233,300 advertised vacancies. Massachusetts dropped 8,100, and New Jersey fell 7,300. Connecticut dropped by 3,700,New Hampshire fell 2,500, Rhode Island declined by 1,700, and Vermont lost 400.In August, the South posted the largest regional decline, 68,100, reflecting drops in all of the large States. Leading the decline was Florida with a drop of 14,700 to 216,900; this was in line with its June drop whereas its July drop was very slight (-600). Next was Texas, down 12,200 to 268,900, for a combined 3-month drop of 44,200. Maryland declined by 8,900 to 95,400; Georgia fell 8,100 to 101,600. Virginia lost 6,400, and North Carolina dropped 4,400. Among the smaller states in the South, Alabama fell by 2,900,Tennessee dropped 2,700, Oklahoma lost 1,800, and Arkansas dipped a mere 100.The Supply/Demand rate for the U.S. in July (the latest month for which unemployment numbers are available) stood at 3.35, indicating that there are just over three unemployed workers for every online advertised vacancy. Nationally, there are 9.8 million more unemployed workers than advertised vacancies. The number of advertised vacancies exceeded the number of unemployed only in North Dakota, where the Supply/Demand rate was 0.97. States with the next lowest rates included Nebraska (1.41), South Dakota(1.64), New Hampshire (1.65), Vermont (1.68), and Alaska (1.78). The State with the highest Supply/Demand rate is Mississippi (7.12), where there are over 7 unemployed workers for every online advertised vacancy. There are a few States in which there are at least five unemployed for every advertised vacancy. These include Kentucky (5.06), South Carolina (5.02), and Alabama (5.00).It should be noted that the Supply/Demand rate only provides a measure of relative tightness of the individual State labor markets and does not suggest that the occupations of the unemployed directly align with the occupations of the advertised vacancies (see Occupational Highlights section).OCCUPATIONAL HIGHLIGHTSDemand for workers in Sales and related and Computer and Mathematical Science drops in AugustDemand for Business occupations including Legal, Business and Finance Operations, and Office and Administrative continues to lagDemand for workers in Production and Construction jobs has leveled off over the last few monthsChanges for the Month of AugustAmong the top 10 occupation groups with the largest numbers of online advertised vacancies, Healthcare Practitioners and Technical occupations posted the only increase, 26,300, to 513,700. This compensated for part of the July decrease (-61,200), but labor demand in these occupations were still down 98,800 since January 2011. Occupations that experienced August gains included Registered Nurses, Speech-Language Pathologists, Licensed Practical and Licensed Vocational Nurses, Family and General Practitioners, and Occupational Therapists. The number of advertised vacancies in this occupational category continues to outnumber job-seekers by over two to one (0.41 S/D based on July data, the latest unemployment data available).In August, labor demand for Sales and Related workers declined by 47,800 to 521,900, led by a decrease in demand for Financial Services Sales Agents, Wholesale and Manufacturing Sales Representatives, and Insurance Sales Agents. The decline was much larger than the July decrease (-8,600). The number of unemployed in this occupational category continues to outnumber the number of advertised vacancies by over 2 to 1 (S/D of 2.60).Labor demand for Computer and Mathematical Science workers declined in August by 40,700 to 532,200, led largely by a decrease in demand for Computer Software Engineers (Applications). The combined July and August drop in advertised vacancies for this occupational category totals almost 70,000; however, job opportunities still remain favorable in this occupational category with 3 ads for every job-seeker (S/D of 0.33).Demand for Office and Administrative Support occupations fell by 30,000 to 421,700. This followed only a slight July decline (-4,400). Occupations that underwent declines in August included Sales Floor Stock Clerks, First-Line Supervisors/Managers of Office and Administrative Support Workers, Customer Service Representatives, and Receptionists and Information Clerks. The number of unemployed in these occupations remains above the number of advertised vacancies with over 3 (3.54) unemployed for every advertised vacancy.Food Preparation and Serving Related occupations posted an August drop of 22,200 after experiencing the only July increase (13,700). Responsible for the decline are First-Line Supervisors/Managers of Food Preparation and Serving Workers. Unemployed workers in these occupations outnumber advertised vacancies by 7 to 1.Supply/Demand for Selected Occupations”The slowdown in labor demand is not good news for job-seekers in a number of professions,” said Shelp. “Over the last few months, the demand for workers in Production occupations and Construction has leveled off.” While demand is higher than it was at the beginning of the year, the job search is still not easy in these occupations with almost 19 unemployed for every advertised vacancy in construction and 8 job-seekers looking for work in production for every vacancy.Also, although there is continued demand, the job market is still tough for workers seeking jobs in Food Preparation and Service positions with 7 job-seekers for every advertised opening (July data, the latest unemployment data available). The situation is more favorable for those seeking sales jobs, where there are not quite 3 unemployed for every opening. “Since January, the number of advertised vacancies has risen for workers in Food preparation and service jobs (+10,800), but there are still more unemployed seeking work in these professions than advertised vacancies,” said Shelp.Labor demand was down since January among a number of high-paying occupations. With the August declines, Computer and Mathematical Science occupations were down 2 percent (-9,500) since January while Management positions were down 7 percent (-30,200). Community and Social Servicepositions were down 14,000, a drop of 22 percent, since January. However, the job market was not as difficult for these job-seekers. Based on July data, there are about 2 unemployed for every advertised vacancy in Community and social service (2.5) and Management (1.9). In contrast, there are 3 openings for every unemployed job-seeker in Computer and mathematical science (0.33).METRO AREA HIGHLIGHTSWashington, D.C., Oklahoma City, Minneapolis-St. Paul, and Boston have the lowest Supply/Demand ratesIn August, 41 of the 52 metropolitan areas for which data are reported separately posted over-the-year increases in the number of online advertised vacancies. Among the three metro areas with the largest numbers of advertised vacancies, the New York metro area was down 7,200 or 2.8 percent below itsAugust 2010 level, and the Washington, DC metro area was down 4,500 or 3.0 percent from last year. In contrast, the Los Angeles metro area was up 9,300 or 6.2 percent above last year’s level.The number of unemployed exceeded the number of advertised vacancies in all of the 52 metro areas for which information is reported separately. Washington, DC continues to have the most favorable Supply/Demand rate (1.25) with about one advertised vacancy for every unemployed worker. Oklahoma City, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Boston, Honolulu, San Jose, and Baltimore were metropolitan locations where there were just fewer than two unemployed looking for work for every advertised vacancy. On the other hand, metro areas in which the respective number of unemployed is substantially above the number of online advertised vacancies include Riverside, CA ‘ where there are over nine unemployed people for every advertised vacancy (9.37) ‘ Miami (5.56), Sacramento (4.96), Los Angeles (4.37), Memphis (4.34), and Detroit (4.19). Supply/Demand rate data are for June 2011, the latest month for which unemployment data for local areas are available.PROGRAM NOTESThe Conference Board Help Wanted OnLine® Data Series measures the number of new, first-time online jobs and jobs reposted from the previous month on more than 1,200 major Internet job sites and smaller job sites that serve niche markets and smaller geographic areas.Like The Conference Board’s long-running Help Wanted Advertising Index of print ads (which was published for over 55 years and discontinued in October 2008 but continues to be available for research), the new online series is not a direct measure of job vacancies. The level of ads in print and online can change for reasons not related to overall job demand.With the December 1, 2008 release, HWOL began providing seasonally adjusted data for the U.S., the nine Census regions and the 50 States. Seasonally adjusted data for occupations were provided beginning with the December 2009 release. This data series, for which the earliest data are for July 2005, continues to publish not seasonally adjusted data for 52 large metropolitan areas.People using this data are urged to review the information on the database and methodology available on The Conference Board website and contact us with questions and comments.

Lawyer shown the door for failure to pay child support Mark D. Killian Managing Editor The Supreme Court has yanked the license of a conditionally admitted member of the Bar for his failure to pay child support.The lawyer — only identified in the March 11 opinion as R.M.C. — was conditionally admitted in 2001 pursuant to a little used process known as a “credit string,” where applicants with financial problems acknowledge their debts and swear to repay them.Prior to R.M.C.’s admission, the Board of Bar Examiners found R.M.C. was delinquent in making child support payments and the arrearage he had accrued from such delinquency. R.M.C. then made a sworn amendment to his Bar application that included plans for repayment of the child support arrearages and a promise to continue paying the court-ordered child support; a commitment to meet the obligations as set out in his repayment plan; and a written acknowledgment that failure to adhere to the repayment plan could result in revocation of R.M.C.’s license to practice law.However, in March 2003, the Board of Bar Examiners determined R.M.C. failed to make any payments toward the child support arrearage and, because he continued to be delinquent in paying his ongoing child support obligation, the arrearage had actually increased during the time he had been a member of the Bar.R.M.C. did not challenge any of the factual findings with regard to his noncompliance with the amendment to his Bar application. Rather, he argued that his amendment was merely a plan for the future and the arrearage was not paid because his plan did not succeed. He also argued that based on the wording of Rule 5-14, it would have been impossible for his plan to repay the child support not to be deemed a misstatement unless he had succeeded at complying with the repayment plan.The court didn’t buy the argument, and noted the Board of Bar Examiners was “most lenient” in even recommending R.M.C. for conditional admission in the first place.“Immediately after making the sworn statement in September of 2001 that he would begin paying off the arrearage in October of 2001, R.M.C. failed to make any child support payment in either October or November of 2001, let alone a payment toward the arrearage,” the court said. “In other words, one month after entering into the sworn repayment plan, he had already defaulted.”Moreover, the court said, even in the months during which R.M.C. did pay child support, he did not once make any payment toward the arrearage before the board initiated the revocation proceedings.“As of the date of his formal hearing in May of 2003, he still had not made a single payment toward the arrearage and had not made any child support payments since November of 2002,” the court said.When questioned, R.M.C. stated that it had not occurred to him to consider making partial payments, the court said.“Therefore, we are faced with a record that shows that R.M.C. not only failed to comply with the repayment plan—he failed to even make a good faith effort to comply with the repayment plan and continued to fail to make child support payments, allowing the total arrearage to increase,” the court said. “Under these circumstances, we refuse to reward R.M.C.’s continued disregard for his children, the custodial parent, the court system, court judgments, and his sworn promise to the Board and this Court.”The court acted in Florida Board of Bar Examiners Re: R.M.C., No. SC02-1935.
