Paleocirculation and ventilation history of Southern Ocean sourced deep water masses during the last 800,000 years

first_imgMost conceptual models of ocean circulation during past glacial periods invoke a shallowed North Atlantic‐sourced water mass overlying an expanded, poorly ventilated Southern Ocean (SO)‐sourced deep water mass (Southern Component Water, or SCW), rich in remineralised carbon, within the Atlantic basin. However, the ventilation state, carbon inventory and circulation pathway of SCW sourced in the Pacific sector of the SO (Pacific SO) during glacial periods are less well understood. Here, we present multi‐proxy data – including δ18O and δ13C measured on the benthic and planktic foraminifera Cibicidoides wuellerstorfi, and Neogloboquadrina pachyderma, and productivity proxies including percent CaCO3, total organic carbon (TOC) and Ba/Ti – from a sediment core located in the high latitude (71°S) Pacific SO spanning the last 800 kyr. Typical glacial δ13C values of SCW at this core site are ~0 ‰. We find no evidence for SCW with extremely low δ13C values during glacials in the high latitude Pacific SO. This leads to a spatial gradient in the stable carbon isotope composition of SCW from the high latitude SO, suggesting there are different processes of deep‐ and bottom‐water formation around Antarctica. A reduced imprint of air‐sea gas exchange is evident in the SCW formed in the Atlantic SO compared with the Pacific SO. A spatial δ13C gradient in SCW is apparent throughout much of the last 800,000 years, including interglacials. A SO‐wide depletion in benthic δ13C is observed is early MIS 16, coinciding with the lowest atmospheric pCO2 recorded in Antarctic ice cores.last_img read more

Commercial Property Features Many Possibilities in Cape May County

first_imgLiz and Kevin O’Brien are selling their property at 1300 Stagecoach Road in Upper Township, which offers a convenient location and many possibilities. By Maddy VitaleIf there ever was a property that embodied the age-old real estate adage, “Location, location, location,” it would be this one.In fact, Kevin and Liz O’Brien believe their strategically located commercial property at 1300 Stagecoach Road in Ocean View, Upper Township, offers endless possibilities. The couple, who have owned the property for 20 years and have run a successful national award-winning construction business Kalimex out of a portion of it, should know.While running their business, they have rented to a variety of other businesses, from automotive and general construction, to a swimming pool company and an electrical contracting business. With proximity to Ocean City, Sea Isle City and Avalon, the well-maintained building, which sits on more than four acres, would be ideal for a business owner looking for a prime location, or for someone who wants to utilize the large yard area and ample storage space.  The building has a fenced in yard and plenty of places for equipment and vehicles.“The building has been great. We have been very selective with the tenants over the years,” Kevin O’Brien said. “We have run our business effectively out of here while renting other portions of the property to other great businesses. You can definitely run a successful business here.”Priced at $539,000, the property boasts 6,700 square feet, which includes a 1,900-square-foot warehouse and 2,400 square feet of office space on each of the two floors.  Taxes for the year are approximately $11,000.There are two floors, each with 2,400 square feet of space for offices.The O’Briens said a real selling point of their property is its location to the shore communities.“Boardwalk businesses in Ocean City might need extra storage space off-island. A business in Sea Isle might service multiple locations and need extra space or a place for assembly or storage,” Kevin O’Brien said. “Someone might have a shop on the island, but just need more space and want to spread over to the mainland.”Liz O’Brien said over the years the couple, who are aerospace engineers by trade, thought of so many different businesses that could occupy the building.The first floor features a row of offices and a separate area where an auto-body shop used to operate.“It can be anything from a lab to a workshop, to an automotive shop. There is so much room,” Liz O’Brien noted. “You could also fit a lot of boats in the yard.”It could also be used for a gym, training facility or even amusements, she added.The building is from 1985. The O’Briens have done many upgrades over the years.  The roof is less than a year old, new HVAC & high efficiency lighting, fenced yard and air-conditioning.The property is zoned CM2 for commercial. Kevin O’Brien explained that the designation allows for many possibilities. Retail sale of goods or services, office and office buildings, marinas, daycare center, retail garden centers, a landscaping company, health clubs, shopping center, wholesale distribution and even an autobody shop can open at the centrally located site.The property boasts just over four acres.“There is a broad array of types of businesses that are allowed here,” Kevin O’Brien said. “The building has always been great for our business and we have listed it at a realistic price.”The O’Briens are also amenable to renting the property, although they would prefer to sell. For renters who are interested, they would have the possibility of renting to own. If someone rents, the O’Brien’s are willing to change the property according to their needs. “We would be very flexible,” Kevin O’Brien said. For two decades, the O’Briens have had a lot of good businesses that rented from them for leases ranging from a year to several years. There is 1,900 square feet of warehouse space.“We rented to contractors who had heavy electrical and other equipment,” Kevin O’Brien said. “We have so many areas for storage and distribution.”At one time a pool business even used a portion of the space for retail to showcase hot tubs. Liz and Kevin O’Brien have enjoyed working out of the building for two decades.“Contractors need the most space, business with things like trucks and equipment and other storage needs,” Kevin O’Brien said. “We have the space.”The O’Briens said there has been interest in the property. However, they felt that because of the Ocean View address, it hasn’t had the visibility it should.While it is in Ocean View according to the Post Office, it is literally feet from Marmora in Upper Township, O’Brien explained. So, when people search for properties around Ocean City or Sea Isle, the property doesn’t come up. The O’Briens want people to share in the success of the property and its location.Liz and Kevin O’Brien, of Somers Point, have owned the building and operated their business out of it for years. They are pictured with their children Teagen, Kasey and Farley and their dog Marley.It is less than three miles to Roosevelt Boulevard, which turns into 34th Street and takes motorists into Ocean City.  This makes access to Route 9 and the Garden State Parkway very convenient.“We are totally open to folks renting when they start out. There is always the possibility for them of buying it,” Kevin O’Brien said. “The property has been great to us over the years.”For more information check out our website at or [email protected]  or call 609-736-2020 The property at 1300 Stagecoach Road in Upper Township is near Ocean City, Sea Isle and Avalon.last_img read more

Investigator blames exhaust leak for Sydney seaplane crash

first_imgCANBERRA, Australia (AP) — An Australian crash investigator says a pilot was confused and disoriented from inhaling poisonous exhaust fumes before his seaplane plunged into a river near Sydney in 2017. Canadian pilot Gareth Morgan and his five British passengers died during the New Year’s Eve flight. All six had elevated levels of carbon monoxide in their blood. Investigators found cracks in the plane’s exhaust system and missing bolts. Sydney Seaplanes has since installed advanced carbon monoxide warning systems on their planes. It blames a maintenance company approved by the Australian aviation safety regulator for the tragedy.last_img read more

Springtime snack

first_imgIf you want to fertilize shade trees individually, Crawford suggests applying 5 pounds per thousand square feet of canopy now and again in June. “I can put a bucket under my arm and throw it out just about as fast as I can walk, estimating height as I go,” Crawford said. Special plants, special blendsAzaleas and specialty plants require specific fertilizer with micro-nutrients added, he said. For more information on how to care for your landscape plants, contact your local UGA Extension agent at 1-800-ASK-UGA1. By Sharon OmahenUniversity of GeorgiaWhether your landscape has fruit trees, shade trees, ornamentals or a blend, a University of Georgia expert says now is the time to fertilize. “Unfortunately for homeowners, finding a fertilizer to use all over the landscape can be challenging,” said Jim Crawford, a University of Georgia Cooperative Extension agent in Jefferson County. For ornamental bulbs, use 3 pounds of fertilizer per 100 square feet of bed. “Just be sure you have the fertilizer down by the time the plants bud out,” he said. Fertilize a pear tree at a rate of 1 cup per year of age, up to 12 cups. Apply half before the tree buds out and the other half after fruiting. For plum and peach trees, apply 1 cup of 10-10-10 fertilizer per year of age, up to 12 cups for mature trees. After harvest, apply 1 pound per inch of trunk diameter up to 5 pounds.center_img Figs should be fertilized in late winter, mid-June and mid-July. Apply one-third pound per foot of tree height each time. “Just like farmers, homeowners will be paying more for fertilizer this year,” he said. “You don’t want to purchase a lot of bags just to use a few pounds of each.”One stop shoppingTo avoid extra expense, Crawford recommends using “good ol’ 10-10-10 fertilizer.” The number pattern on the bag means the mix contains 10 percent nitrogen, 10 percent phosphorus and 10 percent potassium. “This fertilizer will be sufficient for all your needs,” he said. Ornamental shrubs should receive 1 tablespoon per foot of height or 3 tablespoons per 10 square feet, he said. This should be applied in March and repeated in May and July. Old, established muscadine vines need 3 to 5 pounds of fertilizer now and half of a pound in early June. To make sure newly planted vines get what they need, give each one-fourth pound of fertilizer now. Do it again in late May and again in early July. Two-year-old vines need the same as the newly planted ones. However, three-year-old vines like 2 pounds in March and 1 pound in May.Shade trees okayCrawford said most shade trees get enough residual fertilizer when you fertilize your home lawn. “If you are fertilizing the lawn under shade trees, they can get enough from that and no extra is needed,” he said. Different plants need different fertilizer recipes to meet their individual needs, he said. last_img read more

U.S. Senate banking panel chief forges ahead with bill to ease rules

first_imgby: Michael FlahertyThe chairman of the Senate Banking Committee is pushing ahead with a bill to ease rules across sections of the financial industry after the first round of efforts to work with his Democratic counterpart failed.Alabama Republican Richard Shelby is crafting a regulatory relief bill that aims to give small U.S. banks more breathing room to operate by exempting them from certain federal regulations put in place after the 2008 financial crisis.The bill could also seek to ease regulations on regional banks such as Comerica Inc and insurers such as Allstate Corp and curb the authority of the Federal Reserve.Some of the financial regulations targeted by Shelby were put in place as part of the 2010 Wall Street reform act known as Dodd-Frank.

Appeal of the Social Council for Tourism: In order to preserve jobs in tourism, support must continue

first_imgThe social partners in tourism, representatives of HUP-Association of Hospitality and Tourism and the trade union in tourism STUH and SIKD, yesterday at the session of the Social Council for Tourism discussed the situation in the tourism sector and the necessary new solutions after the current measures of the Government. In conclusion, Eduard Andrić, President of the Social Council for Tourism and President of the Trade Union of Tourism and Services of Croatia, emphasized that faced with a severe corona virus attack on tourism and hospitality as a fundamental driver of the Croatian economy, and calls on the Government to continue implementing tourism support measures in order to maintain all the positive effects of previous measures that have saved thousands of jobs and enabled inclusion workers at the beginning of the tourist season which is still questionable because it does not depend on us and the diligent hands of our tourist workers.”As social partners, together with the Croatian Employers’ Association-Association of Hospitality and Tourism, we will continue negotiations on adjusting the national – branch collective agreement and all collective agreements with employers to actively influence the further recovery and sustainability of activities in the coming period. recovery depends solely on the workers and their jobs which should still by no means come into question.” They also suggest that new decisions be made as soon as possible and that a moratorium or postponement of contractual obligations be provided which, due to extraordinary circumstances, cannot be fulfilled and which could not have been foreseen or caused by permanent seasonal workers or employers. “Permanent seasonal workers are just as important for employers in tourism as all permanent workers, so it is important for us to provide them with equal protection measures in maintaining the stability of labor relations and social protection through guaranteed compensation while they are not working. This is our common interest and goal for which we believe that the necessary solutions will be made in the direction of enabling the fulfillment and retention of contractual obligations, and most importantly the retention of all permanent employees.” she stated Marina Cvitić, President of the Trade Union of Istria, Kvarner and Dalmatia. Appreciating the quick reaction of the Government and the adopted changes to the Permanent Seasonal measure through the possibility of extending the period of extended pension insurance, the social partners in tourism are calling for additional support. As a first point, they appeal to the Government of the Republic of Croatia to urgently make a decision on + 3 months of CES support for preserving jobs in the activities most affected by coronavirus in the amount of HRK 4.000 from June onwards, to business entities whose revenue decline compared to the previous year % or more with equal measures of tax exemption and contribution to the amount of aid. Although tourism has been hardest hit by the corona crisis this year, we believe that tourism has the potential to trigger and significantly affect the recovery of the entire Croatian economy through its multiplier effects, say the Social Partners in Tourism, adding that it is worth preserving jobs and business systems. tourism and it is necessary to support tourism. The Social Council for Tourism has given support to the Government for everything that has been done so far, but they emphasize that in order to preserve jobs in tourism, support must continue. As an argument for their proposals, they point out that it is now quite certain that this tourist season will be much shorter than usual and that employers will not be able to complete 6 months of work for permanent seasonal workers. Therefore, it is necessary to enable the reduction of this obligation or its postponement to the next year, ie until the conditions for employment are met, and employers will, as before, be the first to hire permanent seasonal workers.   “Continuation of support for workers’ salaries is a key measure for preserving jobs and employment until the beginning of the next tourist year. It is quite certain that tourism will recover and that educated and permanent workers are the key to its success. However, June is just around the corner and employers and workers in tourism are in great uncertainty, so new decisions need to be made urgently. ” she pointed out Natali Komen Bujas, director of HUP Association of Hospitality and Tourism. The tourism sector must be supported to bridge the period until the next tourist year, which can be achieved through stronger use of EU funds and funds to help tourism through wage subsidies by spring 2021 and by adopting measures to preserve the business of tourism companies by reducing VAT rates and parafiscal levies, the Social Tourism Council also concluded.last_img read more
