Krill fishing in the Scotia Sea in relation to bathymetry, including the detailed distribution around South Georgia

first_imgAnalyses of the distribution of krill fishing based on fine-scale (0.5″ latitude x1″ longitude) data show that harvesting in the Scotia Sea has been mainly in shelf andshelf-break areas on the northern side of the Scotia Arc. Regional analyses reveal thattliere are restricted parts of shelf and shelf-break areas where high catches have beenobtained. Altliough these data give a general idea of where the fishery has operated,they do not reveal the localised nature of the fishing operation. Over the last threewinter fishing seasons (1993 to 1995) individual trawl statistics have been recorded inthe South Georgia area. Analyses of these data show marked interannual variability inthe distribution of trawls. The data for 1993 were only available from August but thefishery was restricted in that period to an area on the western edge of the shelf breakwhere negligible fishing occurred in the following two seasons. In 1994 the fishery wasalmost totally based over a large shallow bank area on the northeast shelf edge. During1995 the fishery was still predominantly in this area but also operated further west 011 arange of banks associated with submarine valleys. The results are discussed in relationto the ecology of krill and the fishery’s interaction with local predator colonieslast_img read more

Oyster Bay Town Discriminates Against Blacks, Feds Allege in Suit

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York The Town of Oyster Bay’s affordable housing programs for young families and seniors discriminated against minorities when it awarded units to only white residents, the U.S. Department of Justice alleged in a lawsuit.The town’s two housing programs allegedly violated the Fair Housing Act by discriminating against African-Americans by giving preference to residents of the town, which is predominantly white, at two developments: The Seasons at Plainview and The Seasons at Massapequa, according to the lawsuit.“The Fair Housing Act protects the right of all individuals, regardless of their race, to choose where to live and to have equal access to affordable housing,” said Jocelyn Samuels, Acting Assistant U.S. Attorney General for Civil Rights.The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Central Islip, names Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto and the Long Island Housing Partnership, which helped administer the programs, although the suit against the LIHP was settled when the nonprofit group agreed to educate local leaders on the law.The suit takes issue with the “Next Generation” and “Golden Age” housing programs in which developers are allowed them to build housing more densely than zoning restrictions allow in exchange for lower sale prices for certain units.It claims that the programs are discriminatory because it gives preference to residents of the town, which has African Americans. Units should have been awarded to residents from more diverse areas beyond the town’s borders to bring it into compliance with federal law, prosecutors alleged.“It is just plain wrong to suggest that the Town of Oyster Bay is anything but a welcoming community to all people regardless of race,” Venditto said in a statement. “We are now prepared to vigorously defend our housing programs in court, because these housing programs are vitally important to our community.”New York State Assemb. Charles Lavine (D-Glen Cove) wrote a letter to Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano urging him to direct the Commission on Human Rights investigate into the allegations.last_img read more

Supari denies H5N1 caused girl’s death

first_imgNov 13, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – Indonesian Health Minister Siti Fadilah Supari today denied reports that a 15-year-old girl who recently died had H5N1 avian influenza.News services—citing one of the girl’s doctors and a local health official—reported yesterday that tests from two laboratories showed that the girl from central Java, who died Nov 7, had the virus. If the reports are correct and the World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes her infection, her illness will be listed as Indonesia’s 138th H5N1 case and 113th death.However, Supari said today that two laboratory tests came back negative, according to reports from Agence France-Presse and Xinhua, China’s state news agency. “Both of the laboratory tests showed that she was negative of bird flu, so the total death toll (of bird flu) remains 112,” she told Xinhua.The girl reportedly lived near a poultry slaughterhouse.News about human H5N1 infections in Indonesia since June has been difficult to evaluate, because the health ministry said then it would no longer promptly report H5N1 cases, instead giving only periodic updates. Some health officials have said the lack of prompt reporting will hamper efforts to monitor the world’s pandemic risk level.In other developments, 17 people from Sudiang subdistrict in Indonesia’s South Sulawesi province have been hospitalized in Makassar for symptoms that resemble avian influenza, the Jakarta Post reported today. Thirteen of the patients are children.Andi Kurina Bintang told the Post that the patients had high fever, coughing, and breathing difficulty. “Rapid tests showed they may be infected with H5N1 avian influenza virus, but we are waiting for blood test results to come back from the Hasanuddin University lab,” she said.She said 31 chickens had died in the subdistrict the week before three toddlers became ill, according to the Post report.Sulistiawati, a livestock official in Makassar, told the Post that rapid tests on several of the chickens were positive for the virus.See also:Nov 12 CIDRAP News story “Indonesian sources say teen died of H5N1 infection”last_img read more

Stats wise there’s no question about the impact that he has on this team.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENT‘So as much as I can and the club can we will try to convince him to stay with us.’ MORE: Charlie Nicholas tells Mikel Arteta to drop Arsenal record signing Nicolas Pepe for Gabriel MartinelliMORE: Ian Wright hails Mikel Arteta for resurrecting Shkodran Mustafi’s Arsenal career Advertisement Mikel Arteta hopes he can convince Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to remain at Arsenal (Picture: Getty)The former Borussia Dortmund star has 18 months remaining on his current deal and is reportedly a target for both Barcelona and Inter Milan.According to Le10 Sport, Aubameyang last spoke with the Arsenal hierarchy last Autumn prior to Arteta’s appointment.The 30-year-old was reportedly reluctant to sign an extension at that juncture given his desire to play in the Champions League, while he was also said to harbour doubts over Arsenal’s transfer policy and desire to strengthen the squad.Arteta subsequently was only able to bring in Pablo Mari and Cedric Soares on loan in January but both are still to make their debuts.Arsenal’s performances, meanwhile, have undoubtedly improved under their new head coach and results are starting to follow, but they still remain seven points adrift of Chelsea in fourth place with 11 games of the Premier League campaign remaining.

Bats Europe launches Brexit indices

first_imgStock exchange Bats Europe has launched two benchmark indices designed to reflect the impact of Brexit on UK companies.They were created by splitting the Bats UK 100 Index, which tracks the top 100 UK-listed companies based on market capitalisation, into two groups. The first lists the 50 companies that derive the largest portions of their revenues from the UK, and the second lists the 50 companies that have the least revenue exposure to the UK.They form the “Bats Brexit High 50” and “Bats Brexit Low 50” indices.By facilitating an analysis of the difference in performance between those two groups of companies, the indices “are designed to act as barometers for assessing how Brexit is impacting UK companies”, according to Bats. Mark Hemsley, president of Europe for CBOE, which recently acquired Bats, said: “The UK’s triggering of Article 50 is expected to lead to fundamental changes in the way businesses and capital markets behave prior to and subsequent to the UK’s separation from the European Union.“We are pleased to provide the marketplace with benchmark indices that are designed to gauge investor sentiment towards UK companies during this critical time.”Bats said that since the UK EU referendum in June, the Bats 100 UK Index is up over 16% in price performance. The Bats Brexit High 50 Index is nearly flat, up just 0.8%, and the Bats Brexit Low 50 Index is up over 23%.Bats is providing the indices free of charge.last_img read more
