The intense magnetic storm of December 19, 1980: Observations atL= 4

first_imgThe intense magnetic storm of December 19, 1980 occurred during a major rocket and balloon geophysical research campaign at Siple Station, Antarctica. A balloon flight measuring the electric field and bremsstrahlung X ray flux was conducted during the main phase of the storm. The balloon data and associated ground‐based data from around the world contain several lines of evidence which indicate that the dayside auroral oval expanded to an invariant latitude ≤59° during the storm. Evidence for this conclusion includes (1) the pattern of ground‐based magnetic field and ionospheric electric field perturbations; (2) a substantial departure from the normal diurnal curve of the vertical component of the electric field in the stratosphere; and, (3) identical, relatively rapid equatorward motion of regions of electron precipitation, observed or inferred to occur, simultaneously at three L ∼ 4 stations: Siple, Halley Bay and SANAE, separated by several hours in local time across the dayside. The absence of electron precipitation at Siple after this equatorward motion is an indication that the polar cap had expanded to include Siple during this interval. The power spectra of the magnetic field fluctuations at ULF observed at Siple and in a conjugate latitude chain of magnetometers were consistent with the presence of the dayside auroral oval in the near vicinity of Siple and with the presence of a major magnetospheric boundary slightly equatorward of ∼59°. The stratospheric electric field measured during the recovery phase was very large for this latitude for a period of several hours. This observation suggests that a subauroral latitude ion drift event of unusual intensity and duration accompanied this storm.last_img read more

Hoboken releases Union Dry Dock poll results

first_imgHOBOKEN — The city of Hoboken received 2,447 responses to an online survey regarding the future use of the former Union Dry Dock property on the northern waterfront. UDD was purchased by NY Waterway last year as a ferry maintenance and repair facility, but the city wants to acquire the property for public use.“The people of Hoboken have spoken loud and clear: we overwhelmingly oppose industrial uses and want to complete our waterfront as public open space,” said Mayor Ravi Bhalla in an email to the community. “Our community’s decades-old vision for a continuous, public waterfront park is as strong as ever, and my administration will do everything it can to make it a reality.” Based on this public feedback, the city will continue the process of acquisition of the Union Dry Dock site by initiating good faith discussions with the property owner.According to the alert, 91.5 percent of the 2,404 respondents said they believe the UDD property should remain a priority for the city to complete a publicly accessible waterfront park system.It also states that of the 2,447 respondents to the question “what is your preferred use for the Union Dry Dock Property,” 73.8 percent of people said they wanted “a public open space and waterfront walkway with no industrial uses. This option would be paid for by the City of Hoboken at a potential acquisition, design, and construction cost of tens of millions of dollars. Funding sources may include the Hoboken Open Space Trust Fund, County Open Space Trust Fund, and NJ Environmental Infrastructure Trust low-interest loans, among other sources.”13.5 percent of respondents said they wanted “A ferry maintenance and refueling facility with a public open space on top of a ferry maintenance facility, with an inland walkway next to Sinatra Drive. This option would be paid for mostly or complete by NY Waterway.” 8.1 percent of respondents said they wanted “A ferry maintenance and refueling facility with pocket parks at the north and south ends of the property, with an inland walkway next to Sinatra Drive. This option would be paid for mostly or complete by NY Waterway.”last_img read more

Greg Browne Receives Hero’s Send-off

first_imgBy TIM KELLYGreg Browne was a hero. As such, he received an appropriate funeral mass Thursday in his adopted hometown of Philadelphia.Browne passed away in the evening hours of New Year’s Day following a heroic 18-month battle with cancer. He was 53.Browne saved lives as an Ocean City lifeguard and as a Philadelphia Fire Department paramedic. On Thursday, his own life was celebrated by family, friends, professional colleagues and a large group of brothers from the Philadelphia Fire Department.Brown is survived by wife Amy Brenholts, several cousins, a godchild, his devoted dogs and numerous friends.Approximately 250 people turned out for the services at St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church, with more than 100 of them representing the firefighters, paramedics and police.“To see how those guys took Greg in after a relatively brief time working as a paramedic says a lot about their connection with him, and it says a lot about Greg as well,” remarked Paul McCracken, a close friend and former partner on the Ocean City Beach Patrol.“Greg was the kind of guy who was inspirational to people without trying to be,” McCracken continued. “When he did anything, he did it with pride, respect and honor. A lot of the things he stood for might seem old fashioned nowadays, but he stayed loyal to his beliefs and to other people.”Ocean City’s Greg Browne, 53, passed away on New Year’s Day. (Photo courtesy of Browne family)Annie McCormick, a 6ABC reporter and co-worker of Brenholts, a photographer for the station, became such close friends with the couple, she thought of them as family. She met them both on one of her first assignments for the station, covering Superstorm Sandy.The station arranged for McCormick to stay with Browne and Brenholts in Ocean City while most people on the island obeyed the order to evacuate.During a heartfelt eulogy, McCormick recalled she was “terrified” at the prospect of covering this once-in-a-lifetime event, but Greg and Amy made it “hands down the best assignment of my life.”“Over the next 48 hours, I got to know Amy and Greg really well,” she said.McCormick, her photographer, Greg’s parents and the couple’s dogs “hunkered down” to ride out the storm and cover it for Action News.“The thing I remember about being with Greg and Amy was the laughter, the constant laughter,” McCormick said.McCormick said covering the assignment wasn’t work, it was an adventure, “because with Greg, life was an adventure. He lived his life following every passion that intrigued him. That was his secret to enjoying the ride.”Luke Stasky, right, and Chris Baldini were colleagues of Browne’s with the Philadelphia Fire Department.Browne’s intelligence, curiosity and willingness to try new things led him to a number of different careers. He earned his pilot’s license to fly banner planes over South Jersey beaches and then graduated and was licensed as a jet pilot for private clients and for USAirways.He was also well-known in South Jersey for his work as a reporter, weatherman, photographer and editor at the now-defunct news operation at TV 40 in Linwood.At age 48, Browne decided to embark on a new career as a Philadelphia Fire Department paramedic, requiring demanding coursework at Thomas Jefferson University Medical Center, and the rigorous training of the Philadelphia Fire Academy.Luke Stasky, a fellow paramedic and a much younger one, said he marveled at Greg’s tenacity to make it through the training and how strong Browne was physically.“I thought he was a much younger guy,” Stasky said. “He was physically imposing. When I heard what his age was, I just couldn’t believe it.”McCracken said becoming a firefighter was the career Greg had sought his whole life and finally found.“It was the perfect fit for Greg,” McCracken said. “It combined his technical skills from flying, his communication ability from the TV work and the physicality and desire to help people from his years as a lifeguard. But what satisfied him the most was the brotherhood he shared with those men and women.”Stasky was among a detail of comrades who saluted Greg in the street outside the church, followed by a group of bagpipers playing selections Greg had chosen.“The Axmen” motorcycle club joined with other groups escorting Greg Browne’s coffin from the church.The “Axmen,” a motorcycle club comprised of firefighter members, provided an escort, as did the columns of the firefighters themselves, the fire engines and other apparatus representing Medic 35, Ladder 5 and Engine 1 of the Fire Department and the bagpipers as a hearse carrying Browne’s coffin drove away from the church.“Thanks for your service and dedication to helping others,” Shanin Theis, another former Ocean City lifeguard partner, wrote on Greg’s Facebook page. “You were one of the good ones. Old school at heart, an athlete and a patriot. You’ll be missed.”MEMORIAL DONATIONS: Those wishing to make a donation in Greg Browne’s memory are asked to send contributions to the Local 22 Widows Fund, Philadelphia Firefighters and Paramedics Union Local 22, 415 North 5th Street, Philadelphia, Pa. 19123. Philadelphia firefighters salute Greg Browne outside St. Patrick’s Church following his funeral mass.last_img read more

Richard Stevenson answers your questions

first_imgQWhat is the legal temperature for frozen food?AActually, there isn’t one. Many years ago there was a temperature control regulation that set a minimum limit of -12C for all frozen foods for all food business operators. But this was removed when it became more established that frozen temperatures and shelf-life were more of a quality than a hygiene issue.However, ’quick-frozen’ foods, that are particularly labelled as such, have a specified minimum temperature of -18C and are governed by their own specific regulations. ’Quick-frozen’ foods must be pre-packed in the same facility where the freezing takes place. The labelling must include a best-before date and batch number. Quick-frozen foods are generally mass-market items, because of the processes that take place typically close to the original primary point of production. Good examples would be vegetables and fish, as well as ready-meals.For other food business operators that freeze food in the course of their everyday business, most best-practice guides suggest a temperature of -18C and I would agree with this.For retail packs of frozen food sold to the customer frozen, I would recommend a best-before date. It is also good practice to set your own internal time limits for anything you bulk-freeze. These days I would recommend an absolute maximum period of 12 months. I would reduce this period for poultry and poultry products.last_img read more

Saint Mary’s hosts international students seeking to learn about United States

first_imgThis summer, Saint Mary’s sent four students and four student leaders to Washington, D.C. to participate in the 2018 Study of the U.S. Institutes, or SUSIs.  While there, this group of English, communications, political science and global studies majors joined students from around the world in exploring American culture, history and policy. The SUSIs invite participants to an educational and cultural exchange program that provides them with an immersive experience of America.  Lasting five to six weeks, these programs are designed to help foreign undergraduate students between the ages of 18 and 25 better understand the United States while also developing their leadership skills. The Institutes include a four-week academic residency consisting of interactive classroom activities, discussions, lectures, readings, site visits and workshops.  They also feature a one week educational study tour to a different region of the United States, leadership skills building activities, community service and opportunities to interact with their American peers on a college campus.The program explores civic engagement, environment issues, public policymaking, religious pluralism in the U.S., social entrepreneurship, U.S. history and government and women’s leadership. Maeve McMahon, a senior political science and global studies double major at Saint Mary’s, said she decided to apply for the 2018 SUSIs after learning about the program through her academic advisor.  “[The SUSIs] caught my attention because I needed the credits, but once I started reading up on them and especially when I got there, I realized just how incredible the program truly is,” McMahon said.  “[The SUSIs] bring in girls from all of these other countries, and these women are so intelligent and so driven and involved in activist and non-governmental organizations. Learning from them was so helpful for my majors.”Looking to enrich her concentration in international development, McMahon accompanied the Saint Mary’s delegation to Washington, D.C. for one week of panels, and then participated on-campus at Saint Mary’s for four weeks.  During the program, McMahon and the other students attended classes, networking seminars and guest lectures.  Each week explored different themes including religious tolerance, civil discourse, feminist theory, sexual violence, and American politics and history. The group also participated in weekend excursions to Detroit and Chicago. McMahon said she enjoyed developing relationships with the visiting international students.“I now talk to them almost every day. It’s really cool having friends on the other side of the world,” she said. While the group was studying global relations, the Saint Mary’s delegation also focused on local life through service days at different organizations in South Bend.  McMahon spent time working with local women at St. Margaret’s House, a day center for women and children living in poverty. “Being on campus and not having a car, I never really got the chance to explore South Bend. This was a great opportunity to learn about some of the issues that South Bend is facing and also dealing with and making better,” McMahon said. One of these field trips took the group to an old segregated swimming pool that has since been converted into the Indiana University South Bend Civil Rights Heritage Center.  While there, SUSI participants explored the museum’s exhibit documenting the local civil rights history of northern Indiana.  The international students had a difficult time accepting the history of the Civil Rights Era in America, McMahon said. “They had never heard of it before, they couldn’t really understand how divided it is in our country and how deeply rooted [racism] is,” she said. Though the SUSI international scholars were concerned with learning about the social injustices of American past and present, they were equally interested in the fireflies flickering through the night sky in Chicago, McMahon said.  Before visiting America, they had never seen these luminescent bugs. While studying and traveling with these international students, McMahon said she was able to put aside her preconceived notions of American life, and view the United States through a more critical lens.  In doing this, she not only found a greater appreciation for American institutions but also for the problems that policymakers must continue to address.“Even though I’m a global studies major, this experience did kind of divert my focus back to the United States and the issues that still need to be fixed,” McMahon said.  “I think one of the most dangerous things to think is that there are no problems at all. We can never improve by thinking that way.”Tags: Civil Rights, global studies, saint mary’s, Study of the U.S. Instituteslast_img read more

Chautauqua County Churches Organize COVID-19 Response

first_imgStock Image.JAMESTOWN – Churches from around Chautauqua County have been holding weekly video conference calls since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic to share best practices, to work to ensure food security and mobilize their faith communities.During the conference calls, area churches have created the Pastoral Crisis Line for individuals to seek personalized pastoral care and prayer, regardless of denomination or religious affiliation. The crisis line will refer callers to faith leaders reflective of their religious background and preferences. The new Pastoral Crisis Line can be reached at 716-226-1494.Additionally, leaders have created a sub-committee to better coordinate the efforts of church-sponsored food pantries and to connect these efforts to the Jamestown Public Market and the Mobile Market.To amplify the flow of food from FeedMore WNY church leaders  leaders have also set up a friendly competition between the faith communities to see who can raise the most funds to support those who are struggling to find food in these difficult times.  “To keep folks safe, this food drive will invite folks to contribute funds only,” said church leaders. “We are calling it the Friendly Food Fund Fight which we run until May 3.”The Mobile Market will coordinate the ordering of the food from Brigiotta’s Farmland Produce & Garden Center.  Each congregation will be able to allocate those dollars to their own food pantries or to support a community pantry of their choosing.    Share:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)last_img read more

CAES Legislative Internship

first_imgIt’s 11 a.m. on Thursday, during the Georgia General Assembly’s spring session, and people from all over the state start to the fill the wide hallways of the Georgia Capitol in downtown Atlanta.It’s noisy, and it’s noticeably warmer inside than the weather outside on this brisk February morning.“This happens every day about this time,” said Madison Hickey, a senior studying agricultural communication at the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES).The crowded hallways of the Capitol are a far cry from the small town of Toccoa, Georgia, where Hickey grew up, or even the quiet calm of South Campus at UGA, but it suits her.Hickey is a legislative intern with the state Senate Committee on Agriculture and Consumer Affairs as part of CAES’s Georgia Legislative Internship. Through this competitive program, students spend 12 weeks working full time at the Georgia Capitol, helping legislators craft policies that will impact the state’s largest industry, agriculture. CAES and the Senate agriculture and consumer affairs committee sponsor the program.Hickey, who has been interested in the policies that shape agriculture since her days with the FFA Chapter of Stephens County High School in Toccoa, decided to use the legislative internship as a capstone experience for her CAES career.“I chose to serve as a legislative intern because I believe it is important to have an understanding of the legislative process and how decisions on the state level impact all Georgians,” said Hickey, whose time studying agricultural communication solidified her interest in the policymaking process.Her experience working with Sen. John Wilkinson, who represents the Toccoa area in the state Senate and serves as chairman of the agriculture and consumer affairs committee, helped her understand how policy decisions are made.“I have learned that it truly takes a team of individuals working together to develop and pass a bill,” Hickey said.Hickey credits her agricultural communication courses with preparing her for work at the Capitol.“Madison has been a tremendous asset to our office this session,” said Sen. Wilkinson about Hickey’s ability to keep up with the fast pace of the Capitol. “She is very bright and has a tremendous work ethic. She has been here every day and has done a great job communicating with constituents and members of the agriculture community.”After her experience in Atlanta, Hickey will graduate from CAES in May and hopes to pursue a career where she can merge her passions for agricultural policy and agricultural marketing.CAES’s Georgia Legislative Internship is supported with help from the CAES Deans’ Promise Fund and the Elliott and Christy Marsh Legislative Internship Fund. For more information about the opportunities for leadership available to students attending CAES, visit students.caes.uga.edu.last_img read more

El Salvador and Guatemala Strengthen Common Border Surveillance

first_imgBy Lorena Baires/Diálogo February 11, 2019 Salvadoran and Honduran armed forces improved and strengthened their surveillance strategy in their 200-kilometer border to prevent trafficking networks that smuggle humans, weapons, drugs, and other illicit goods from taking advantage of unofficial border crossings. Both armies deployed more infantry battalions and increased binational operations since November 2018. “Every month, both countries deploy units that work along the border, particularly in areas where we know organized groups smuggle weapons or drugs,” Salvadoran Armed Force Brigadier General Juan Guzmán, commander of the Tomás Regalado 2nd Infantry Brigade, told Diálogo. “Our checks and patrols help disrupt these groups’ criminal activities.” Presidents and border unit commanders of the Northern Triangle hold binational or trinational meetings to coordinate patrols. “We work in an operational environment that facilitates interagency operations, reducing situations that would affect our citizen’s everyday lives,” said Guatemalan Army Colonel Mario Hernández, commander of the Maximiliano Aguilar Santamaría 3rd Infantry Brigade. The 12th Northern Triangle Border Military Units Trinational Meeting, held in El Salvador’s Santa Ana department in November 2018, helped evaluate results and exchange intelligence on the operations being conducted. “Thanks to that assessment, patrols allowed us to identify that local drug dealing not only supplies our countries locally, but also contributes to moving the drugs to Mexico,” Brig. Gen. Guzmán said. “A small amount remains in our country, while the rest moves toward the north.” El Salvador and Guatemala implemented 23 patrols in 2018. For 2019, coordinated units from both countries will be responsible for more than 30 operations to protect citizens. Real-time information Undocumented migrants traveling to the United States is a reality that Guatemalan and Salvadoran service members face on a daily basis; they stop human traffickers on routes that wind through both countries. Since the migrant caravans started in October 2018, military units have become a strategic support for public security and immigration authorities. “We work in coordination with the Civil Police [PNC, in Spanish] and the Migration and Foreign Affairs General Directorate [DGME, in Spanish]. Our presence at unofficial border crossings enabled us to collect and exchange information about how human trafficking networks operate,” said Brig. Gen. Guzmán. The common objective for PNC, DGME, and both countries’ armed forces is to exchange information in real time. That was arranged at the 3rd Northern Triangle Security Ministers Meeting, which gathered officials from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala in January 2018 in El Salvador. “We suggested a defined stance and position toward our partner, the United States, in the sense that we need to recognize the correlation of responsibilities as a region,” Guatemalan Minister of Government Enrique Degenhart told Diálogo. “Regional security is an integrated responsibility, because what happens in a country also affects the security of others.” Brig. Gen. Guzmán and Col. Hernández acknowledged the support of U.S. Southern Command with continuous training, equipment donations, and health programs. “We’ve been trained in urban combat and instructed in the use of special communications equipment, individual and group weapons maintenance, and armored vehicle maintenance. Also, Guatemalan and Salvadoran officers had the opportunity to train in specific fields in the United States,” they said. “We are committed to countering criminal groups, no matter who they are, because it’s important for both countries to have the same strategic lines. Our interagency coordination helps us have a much quicker response,” Mauricio Ramírez Landaverde, Salvadoran minister of Justice and Public Security, told Diálogo. “The armed forces of El Salvador and Guatemala are committed to raising coordination levels and gradually increasing the number of binational patrols. We both consider it crucial to stop human, illegal goods, and drug trafficking,” he concluded.last_img read more

Smoke, but no fire: System malfunction triggers false alarm in House of Representatives complex

first_img“In the second-floor corridor, the aerosol [system] turned on for no apparent reason. The fire department is currently looking into why the system was triggered,” he said on Monday. “Right now, everything is clear and clean. There was no damage and no victims.”Indra added that the smoke had originated from fogging that was triggered by the system.“From outside the building, it did look like something was on fire,” he said.Jakarta police chief Insp. Gen. Nana Sudjana, who was also at the scene, confirmed that there was no fire.“There was only smoke. There was no fire,” he said. (ydp) A malfunction triggered a false fire alarm at the House of Representatives’ compound in Central Jakarta on Monday, officials said. According to reports from the Central Jakarta fire brigade, smoke was first detected from the second floor of the Nusantara 3 building, which spread to the eighth floor by 12.15 p.m., causing dozens of people to evacuate the building.However, House secretary-general Indra Iskandar assured that the smoke had not come from a fire but from a glitch in the fire extinguishing aerosol system.
