Above-normal Atlantic hurricane season expected: NOAA

By on May 18, 2021

first_imgZenobillis/iStockBy MAX GOLEMBO and EMILY SHAPIRO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — There’s a 60% chance of an above-normal Atlantic hurricane season, forecasters with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced on Thursday.There’s a 30% chance of a near-normal season and just a 10% chance of a below-normal season, according to NOAA.Forecasters say we’ll likely see 13 to 19 named storms this season, of which six to 10 may become hurricanes — which means they’ll be strong enough to reach winds of 74 mph or higher.Of those, three to six are forecast to become major hurricanes, with Category 3, 4 or 5 strength — which means they’ll have winds of 111 mph or higher.An average hurricane season has 12 named storms, including six that become hurricanes and three major hurricanes.Several factors are contributing to this forecast: El Nino conditions are expected to be neutral or to trend toward La Nina, meaning El Nino won’t be present to subdue hurricanes, NOAA said. Also, the ocean surface temperature is warmer than average, and there are favorable conditions for development including: diminished vertical wind shear, weaker tropical Atlantic trade winds, and an enhanced West African monsoon.This year’s hurricane season is made especially complicated due to the coronavirus pandemic.“Social distancing and other CDC guidance to keep you safe from COVID-19 may impact the disaster preparedness plan you had in place,” Carlos Castillo, acting deputy administrator for resilience at the Federal Emergency Management Agency, said in a statement. “With tornado season at its peak, hurricane season around the corner, and flooding, earthquakes and wildfires a risk year-round, it is time to revise and adjust your emergency plan now.”The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30. The most catastrophic hurricane of the 2019 Atlantic season was Hurricane Dorian, which grew to a powerful Category 5, decimating the Bahamas.For the Central Pacific — which covers Hawaii — this year’s hurricane season is forecast to be near-normal to below-normal, NOAA said. That season also runs June 1 to November 30.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Will the UK’s resurged unions ever catch up with EU framework?

By on May 12, 2021

first_img Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article Will the UK’s resurged unions ever catch up with EU framework?On 31 Jul 2001 in Personnel Today Britain has seen a fairly constant decline in trade union influence sincethe 1970s and the causes have been much debated. The Thatcher reforms to unionlaw, and the shift from heavy industry to a service-centred economy weresignificant. So too was high unemployment. The recent emergence of a tighter labour market, however, and the LabourGovernment’s changes to labour law, signalled a renaissance in unionmembership. Union influence is now recovering from low levels. But how typicalis it of other European countries? The general picture across the EU is of stable levels of influence. Unionsin Europe are underpinned by supportive institutional frameworks and workscouncils. These frameworks are largely accepted by European managers andprovide a stable basis for unions at an enterprise level. The countries most similar to Britain in terms of union decline are Finlandand Sweden. However, in both Finland and Sweden unions continue to enjoy highlevels of legitimacy within the political system. The trend towards reducedinfluence in all three countries (and, to a lesser extent, in Germany) isexplained by an increasing trend towards decentralised bargaining. Unions findit difficult to move from sectoral to enterprise bargaining. Other countries demonstrate a different trend. In France and Spain, forexample, the number of organisations reporting increased influence outweighsthose reporting the opposite. Even though union membership in these countriesis low, the institutional frameworks and labour markets are supportive. TheSpanish economy, in particular, has shown high levels of growth during the1990s. Unions in European countries are clearly moving in different directions interms of their influence in organisations. This creates a challenge formanagers in devising Europe-wide policies. last_img read more

An assessment of the use of ocean gliders to undertake acoustic measurements of zooplankton: the distribution and density of Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) in the Weddell Sea

By on May 9, 2021

first_imgA calibrated 120 kHz single-beam echo-sounder was integrated into an ocean glider and deployed in the Weddell Sea, Southern Ocean. The glider was deployed for two short periods in January 2012, in separate survey boxes on the continental shelf to the east of the Antarctic Peninsula, to assess the distribution of Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba). During the glider missions, a research vessel undertook acoustic transects using a calibrated, hull-mounted, multi-frequency echo-sounder. Net hauls were taken to validate acoustic targets and parameterize acoustic models. Krill targets were identified using a thresholded schools analysis technique (SHAPES), and acoustic data were converted to krill density using the stochastic distorted-wave Born approximation (SDWBA) target strength model. A sensitivity analysis of glider pitch and roll indicated that, if not taken into account, glider orientation can impact density estimates by up to 8-fold. Glider-based, echo-sounder–derived krill density profiles for the two survey boxes showed features coherent with ship-borne measurements, with peak densities in both boxes around a depth of 60 m. Monte Carlo simulation of glider subsampling of ship-borne data showed no significant difference from observed profiles. Simulated glider dives required at least an order of magnitude more time than the ship to similarly estimate the abundance of krill within the sample regions. These analyses highlight the need for suitable sampling strategies for glider-based observations and are our first steps toward using autonomous underwater vehicles for ecosystem assessment and long-term monitoring. With appropriate survey design, gliders can be used for estimating krill distribution and abundance.last_img read more

first_imgA detailed investigation has been commenced to assess the cause of the explosion at the Gbetiokun oilfield The Gbetiokun oilfield is located southeast of licence OML 40 license. (Credit: skeeze from Pixabay) An explosion at the Gbetiokun oilfield located southeast of licence OML 40, operated by the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC), has killed seven people.Covering an area of 498km², the OML 40 prospect lies onshore within the Niger Delta. It is approximately 65km north-west from the city of Warri.NNPC Group, Group Public Affairs Division general manager Dr Kennie Obateru said that the blast occurred during the installation of a ladder on Benin River Valve Station platform for access during discharging of Gbetiokun production.A detailed investigation has been commenced to assess the cause of the explosion while the Nigerian Department of Petroleum Resources has been duly notified.NPDC said in a statement that “all personnel on board the platform had been fully accounted for.”NPDC operates OML 40 license on behalf of the NPDC/Elcrest Joint VentureNPDC operates the OML 40 license on behalf of the NPDC/Elcrest Joint Venture. The OML 40 licence is estimated to have gross 2P reserves of 82.2 million barrels, and gross 2C contingent resources of 50.7 million barrels.Last year, Eland Oil & Gas announced it has achieved the first production from Gbetiokun oilfield, through the early production facility (EPF).The EPF is designed to process all the reservoir fluids produced under the initial phase of the Gbetiokun development.The facility holds a nominal capacity of 22,000bopd and shuttle tankers are deployed to evacuate the processed crude from Gbetiokun to the injection point on the main OML 40 export pipeline.The company said that the initial gross production was in line with its expectations and would reach approximately 12,000 barrels of oil per day (bopd) from the Gbetiokun-1 and Gbetiokun-3 wells.last_img read more

RBC, GAC, and corporate reorganization with CUNA’s Jim Nussle

By on December 18, 2020

first_imgwith Mike LawsonOk, go easy on him. It’s CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle’s first Governmental Affairs Conference — as host. Sure, he’s been a speaker at the event before but not the host. He jokes that he’ll be the newest person in the room but probably one of the busiest. So to add a little bit more pressure, we invited Jim on the show to talk about the 2015 GAC and what attendees can expect from this year’s event.We discussed the show’s usual stellar keynote lineup: Tom Ridge, Arie Fleischer, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, Arianna Huffington, and a myriad of Congressional representatives —  and how they will complement the credit union message. We also talked about the House being out of session and how that will impact the Hill events. Turns out there’s a silver lining, according to Jim. Watch and find out.In addition, we touched on one of the industry’s recent hot buttons: RBC2 and CUNA’s stance. Lastly, Jim addressed CUNA’s recent reorganization and how it will make the association more effective for credit unions in the future. Many thanks to Jim for taking time out to chat with us. Check it out and pass it on.Visit:www.cuna.org continue reading » 13SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Second Hong Kong coronavirus death as it awaits stranded cruise passengers

By on October 19, 2020

first_imgHong Kong reported its second death from the new coronavirus on Wednesday as authorities drew up plans to fly home hundreds of city residents stranded on a virus-stricken cruise ship in Japan.The 70-year-old man who died had underlying illnesses and was one of 62 confirmed cases in the Chinese-ruled city, a Princess Margaret Hospital spokeswoman said.In addition to those cases, 52 Hong Kong residents have tested positive for the coronavirus on the cruise ship Diamond Princess in Japan. There are 352 Hong Kong residents on the ship. Topics : “We’ve urged the Japanese government to prioritize our cases,” Lee said.”We wouldn’t rule out the possibility of sending more charter flights but we’ll try our best to handle all of them in one day.”The flights are expected to return to Hong Kong on Thursday.The United States evacuated more than 300 nationals on Monday on two chartered flights and six South Koreans and one Japanese spouse flew to South Korea on Wednesday on a chartered flight.Australia also plans to evacuate 169 people to its northern city of Darwin, where they will be quarantined for 14 days.Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam has urged both Hong Kong people on the cruise ship and those at home to accept the government’s quarantine plans.There has been opposition in some Hong Kong neighbourhoods to government plans to set up quarantine centres. Hundreds of people marched in different places over the weekend to voice opposition to the proposed centres.The crisis over the virus comes after months of anti-government demonstrations in the former British colony over the perceived erosion of freedoms by Beijing, which China denies, and the virus has opened up a new front for protesters.In addition to the opposition to quarantine centres, many members of the public have been calling on Lam to shut the entire border with mainland China. Some medical workers have been on strike to press that demand.But Lam has said the full closure of the border would be impractical, inappropriate and discriminatory and the government’s response to the outbreak was based on scientific advice and World Health Organization guidelines.center_img The ship has been quarantined in the port of Yokohama since Feb. 3 after a man, who disembarked in Hong Kong before it travelled to Japan, was diagnosed with the virus.More than 540 people have tested positive for the virus on the liner – the biggest concentration of infected people outside China.Speaking in Hong Kong’s Legislative Council, Security Secretary John Lee said 200 out of the 352 Hong Kong residents on the ship, which is operated by Carnival Corp, were willing to take free, government charter flights home.The government was trying to convince the rest to board the flights, he said. Those coming back would be required to undergo 14 days of quarantine upon arrival.last_img read more
