first_imgSquid are short-lived ecological opportunists which generally have a lifespan of about 1 year. Their populations are labile and recruitment variability is driven, to a greater or lesser extent, by the environment. This variability provides a challenge to management because fisheries for short-lived species are best managed by effort limitation and it is difficult to set effort on a rational basis in the absence of information about the abundance of the next generation prior to recruitment. However, recent research has shown that recruitment variability in several squid species can be partly explained by environmental variability derived from synoptic oceanographic data. In the eastern Pacific coastal upwelling system a fishery for Dosidicus gigas has grown rapidly during the last decade and abundance and catch rates seem to be linked to the El Niño/southern oscillation (ENSO) cycle. ENSO is one of the best understood ocean/climate systems and so with increased knowledge of the life cycle biology of D. gigas, this fishery may provide a good model for understanding environmentally driven recruitment variability in exploited squid populations.last_img read more


first_img[1] Marine geophysical data from the Antarctic continental shelf indicate the former presence of ice streams that drained through bathymetric troughs during the last glacial cycle. Streaming flow is recorded by elongate subglacial bedforms, formed in the upper part of an acoustically transparent sediment layer. Cores from the layer demonstrate that it is a weak and porous subglacial till (“soft till”). Shear within the soft till was concentrated in zones that were 0.1-0.9 m thick. The soft till is a “hybrid” till, formed by a combination of subglacial sediment deformation and lodgment. The base of the soft till is marked by a strong reflector which represents the top of a denser and stronger “stiff till.” The form of this reflector ranges from flat and continuous to deeply grooved and irregular, implying the operation of different mechanisms of sediment mobilization and incorporation into the soft till layer. The irregular form of the basal reflector is consistent with grooving, whereas the flat and continuous form is more consistent with sediment mobilization as a subglacial traction carpet related to changes in basal effective stress. Geophysical evidence for large-scale advection of the soft till, combined with evidence for deformation partitioning into relatively thin layers up to 0.9 m thick, indicates that localized shear zones integrated to transport significant volumes of sediment beneath Antarctic paleo-ice streams.last_img read more


first_imgPrecipitation of relativistic electrons into the atmosphere has been suggested as the primary loss mechanism for radiation belt electrons during large geomagnetic storms. Here we investigate the geographical spread of precipitation as a result of the arrival of a coronal mass ejection (CME) on 21 January 2005. In contrast to previous statistical studies we provide one of the first attempts to describe the geographic and temporal variability of energetic particle precipitation on a global scale using an array of instruments. We combine data from subionospheric VLF radio wave receivers, the high-altitude Miniature Spectrometer (MINIS) balloons, riometers, and pulsation magnetometers during the first hour of the event. There were three distinct types of energetic electron precipitation observed, one globally, one on the dayside, and one on the nightside. The most extensively observed form of precipitation was a large burst starting when the CME arrived at the Earth, where electrons from the outer radiation belt were lost to the atmosphere over a large region of the Earth. On the dayside of the Earth (10-15 MLT) the CME produced a further series of precipitation bursts, while on the nightside dusk sector (similar to 20 MLT) a continuous precipitation event lasting similar to 50 min was observed at 2.5 < L < 3.7 along with Pc 1-2 pulsations observed with a ground-based magnetometer. These observations suggest that the generation of energetic electron precipitation at the inner edge of the outer radiation belt from electromagnetic ion cyclotron (EMIC) wave scattering into the loss cone is the most direct evidence to date connecting EMIC activity and energetic precipitation.last_img read more


first_imgSpecies with broader geographical ranges are expected to be ecological generalists, while species with higher heat tolerances may be relatively competitive at more extreme and increasing temperatures. Thus, both traits are expected to relate to increased survival during transport to new regions of the globe, and once there, establishment and spread. Here, we explore these expectations using datasets of latitudinal range breadth and heat tolerance in freshwater and marine invertebrates and fishes. After accounting for the latitude and hemisphere of each species’ native range, we find that species introduced to freshwater systems have broader geographical ranges in comparison to native species. Moreover, introduced species are more heat tolerant than related native species collected from the same habitats. We further test for differences in range breadth and heat tolerance in relation to invasion success by comparing species that have established geographically restricted versus extensive introduced distributions. We find that geographical range size is positively related to invasion success in freshwater species only. However, heat tolerance is implicated as a trait correlated to widespread occurrence of introduced populations in both freshwater and marine systems. Our results emphasize the importance of formal risk assessments before moving heat tolerant species to novel locations.last_img read more

first_imgMarch 11, 2019 /Sports News – National US soccer players speak out on equal pay suit: ‘We’re on the right side of this’ Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailABC News(NEW YORK) — Members of the U.S. Women’s National Team say they know they are on the “right side” of fighting for equal pay with their new lawsuit that blasts soccer’s national governing body for allegedly paying mere “lip service” to gender equality and dishing out markedly more pay to the men’s team. “We know in our hearts, and we know with the facts that we have, that we’re on the right side of this,” Megan Rapinoe, a star forward for the team, said Monday on ABC News’ Good Morning America. “I don’t think anyone can argue that there’s gender inequities in this world, that there’s a pay gap, that there’s pay discrepancies.”Rapinoe and her teammates on the world champion U.S. Women’s National Team (USWNT) sued the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) Friday for gender discrimination. The lawsuit comes just three months before Team USA — the winningest team in women’s World Cup history — prepares to defend its title at the FIFA World Cup in France. Rapinoe and her teammate Alex Morgan, also a forward, said they have no plans to boycott the World Cup while the lawsuit plays out in court. “I don’t think it’s ever been in our minds to step off the field,” Morgan said. “We’ve been looking forward to the World Cup for three years now … We want to continue to play for our country at the highest stage this summer in France.”Lawsuit about ‘much more’ than pay equityThe lawsuit, filed in California federal court on International Women’s Day, cites not just pay, but also the denial of “at least equal playing, training, and travel conditions; equal promotion of their games; equal support and development for their games; and other terms and conditions of employment.” “In reality, the USSF has utterly failed to promote gender equality,” the lawsuit reads. “It has stubbornly refused to treat its female employees who are members of the [women’s national team] equally to its male employees who are members of the [men’s national team].”The USSF, the lawsuit claims, “has paid only lip service to gender equality and continues to practice gender-based discrimination against its champion female employees on the WNT in comparison to its less successful male employees on the MNT.” To critics who argue the U.S. men’s team brings in more revenue and so should be compensated more, Rapinoe and Morgan said those claims are “arbitrary.” “Obviously [pay equity] is the hot button issue but in order to have I think a fair and a balanced conversation around compensation, we need to look at everything,” Rapinoe said. “We need to look at the way the youth teams are funded. We need to look at the way our staff — our coaching staff, our medical staff — is funded. We need to look at promotion and branding and marketing and sponsorship, all of that.”“Until we do, until we have equity and equality of the men’s and women’s team on both those sides, we can’t really say, ‘Oh, the men make this and the women make this,’” she added. Morgan pointed out that the 2015 Women’s World Cup final was the “most-watched U.S. soccer game in history.” “So I think those claims are really arbitrary,” she said of the revenue comparison. The U.S. men’s soccer team did not qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Their best finish was third place — in 1930. The U.S. women’s team, on the other hand, has won the World Cup three times — in 1991, 1999 and 2015 — and the gold medal at the Olympics four times, most recently in 2012.The suit says that female players earned $15,000 for “being asked to try out for the World Cup team and making the team roster” in 2013 through 2016. On the other hand, men earned $55,000 each for making the World Cup team in 2014. The 28 members of the 2015 winning team are all named as plaintiffs and the suit requests class action status to represent players who have been on the team since February of that year. The suit seeks back pay including interest and benefits, damages, attorneys’ fees and other relief.In 2017, the women’s team reached an agreement with the USSF after filing a complaint with the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission over pay. The agreement included direct and bonus pay increases and per diems equal to the men’s team, according to ESPNW, as well as improved travel and financial support for pregnant or adopting players. It also included required improvements in National Women’s Soccer League standards. In February, the EEOC issued the soccer players a “right to sue,” the new lawsuit indicates, which is required to sue for discrimination under federal law.U.S. Soccer released a statement Sunday pointing out that the U.S. Women’s National Team reached a collective bargaining agreement with the organization two years ago. “U.S. Soccer has faithfully and consistently worked with the U.S. Women’s National Team players and staff to provide the team everything it needs,” U.S. Soccer said in the statement, adding that their commitment to women includes creating two elite international tournaments and adding additional staff focused only on the U.S. Women’s National Team. ‘Inspiring women around the world’The USWNT is not the only women’s team fighting for equal pay and conditions. The women’s national hockey team has been on its own mission, following the soccer team and spurred by its victory at the 2018 Winter Olympics. Similarly, professional female athletes in tennis and basketball have also been making calls for equal pay, prize money, conditions and infrastructure. Rapinoe said she hopes the USWNT’s lawsuit sends a message to women to “fight for what you believe in.” “The big picture ultimately is just giving that message that you should fight for what you believe in. You should fight for what you feel you earn and never give up,” she said, acknowledging that the fight is “difficult at times.”“For us, it’s not only about leaving our sport in a better place, leaving it better for the young girls that will come after, but just in general, inspiring women around the world to stand up for what they believe in,” Rapinoe said. “They have an ally in us. We are with them. we support them and we will continue this fight as long as we need to.” Morgan spoke about the support the USWNT has felt in their fight, including from the U.S. men’s team. “The men have also come out and said that they are in support of us as well, and so we respect them so much for that,” she said. “It’s great to see that support from them, from a lot of our sponsors as well, from women all around the world, both inside and outside of the sport.” “You know that you’re doing something right when you gain that support from people around you to help lift you up,” Morgan added.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
