Several autonomous phase-sensitive radio-echo sounders (ApRES) were deployed at Greenland glaciers to investigate ice deformation. Different attenuation settings were tested and it was observed that, in the presence of clipping of the deramped ApRES signal, each setting produced a different result. Specifically, higher levels of clipping associated with lower attenuation produced an apparent linear increase of diurnal vertical cumulative displacement with depth, and obscured the visibility of the basal reflector in the return amplitude. An example with a synthetic deramped signal confirmed that these types of artifacts result from the introduction of harmonics from square-wave-like features introduced by clipping. Apparent linear increase of vertical displacement with depth occurs when the vertical position of a near-surface internal reflector changes in time. Artifacts in the return amplitude may obscure returns from internal reflectors and the basal reflector, making it difficult to detect thickness evolution of the ice and to correctly estimate vertical velocities. Variations in surface melt during ApRES deployments can substantially modulate the received signal strength on short timescales, and we therefore recommend using higher attenuator settings for deployments in such locations.

× HOBOKEN — According to a release sent out by the Hudson County Sheriff on Thursday morning, a man died Jan. 10 after being hit by a car when he was crossing Observer Highway, near the Jersey City border.“[On] Monday morning, January 10, 2016, Mr. William Rivera, 60, of Hoboken, succumbed to his injuries, after being struck by a car at the intersection of Observer Highway and Bloomfield Street in Hoboken last Tuesday evening, January 3rd,” said Hudson County Sheriff Frank Schillari in the release. “Mr. Rivera remained in critical condition at the Jersey City Medical Center since being brought there by EMS on the night of the crash.”The release said that the driver of the 2016 Jeep Compass, a woman from Valley Stream, N.Y., is cooperating with the investigation, which is ongoing.
By DONALD WITTKOWSKIFor the second time in two months, members of Ocean City’s governing body Thursday night expressed dismay about a proposed wind farm that would be powered by nearly 100 gigantic turbines anchored 15 miles off the coast.Touted as a form of clean energy, the project by the Danish energy company Orsted is a centerpiece of Gov. Phil Murphy’s goal of having 7,500 megawatts of offshore wind capacity in New Jersey by 2035.Members of City Council, though, pointedly asked whether Orsted’s 1,100-megawatt project would make financial sense while reiterating their concerns that it might harm Ocean City’s tourism industry as well as local businesses.Councilman Michael DeVlieger, who initiated the discussion about the Orsted project during Council’s Zoom meeting Thursday, said he wants to hear feedback from local residents and the business community about how they feel about the project.“It’s impossible for us as a legislative body to look at every perspective without the help of the community,” DeVlieger said, noting that the contact information for each Council member is listed on the city’s municipal website at www.ocnj.us.DeVlieger believes that more research should be done on the project’s possible impact on local businesses – including the restaurant, real estate, fishing and hospitality industries – and other critical parts of Cape May County and Ocean City’s tourism trade.“I think we have to do our research from every perspective,” he said. “We have to do it from the perspective of the eco-friendly folks, we have to look at it from the dollars and cents standpoint and we have to look at how it affects each and every bit of our economy, particularly here in Cape May County.”Orsted has announced that it plans to have the wind farm operational by 2024. It is currently going through a rigorous government permitting process that is expected to take two years to complete, a company representative told City Council during a public Zoom presentation on the project in December.During the December meeting, the Council members repeatedly said they were disappointed when Orsted’s representative couldn’t provide details about some of the more technical details of the project. They were also stunned when the Orsted official didn’t know the estimated cost of the wind farm, other than to say it would be more than $1 billion.Councilman Keith Hartzell brought up similar concerns with the project at Thursday’s meeting, saying that he is surprised that Orsted failed to answer even basic “kitchen table questions” about the project.In particular, Hartzell said he is worried about the cost of the wind farm.“Not knowing what something costs is driving me nuts,” he said.Orsted has already said that electric bills will increase for power generated by the wind farm – another issue that has stirred concern among Ocean City’s elected officials.This rendering depicts the Ocean City view of the proposed wind farm on the horizon, 15 miles offshore. The white turbine blades are barely visible in the distance. (Rendering courtesy of Orsted)With so many unanswered questions swirling about the project at this point, Hartzell said he was unsure whether the wind farm would be great or “a flop.”“I haven’t had one person come up to me and say they support it, and that includes environmentalists,” Hartzell added.Mayor Jay Gillian assured the Council members that his administration will be pressing Orsted for more details about the project, including the impacts on Ocean City.“We’re not doing anything here until we get the information that I can tell you,” Gillian said.Orsted is seeking formal approval to possibly run underground electric cables through Ocean City. The cables would connect the offshore turbines to a substation next to the B.L. England Generating Station in Marmora. B.L. England is under consideration as one of the sites where Orsted would link the wind farm to the land-based power grid.Orsted would need Council’s approval for an ordinance allowing the company to run the cables under Ocean City’s streets. A company official said 35th Street is Orsted’s first choice, with 14th Street and Ninth Street also under consideration.City Council President Bob Barr indicated that Ocean City may hold the power to slow Orsted’s project if it remains dissatisfied with the plan. He said Orsted still must provide answers “from the most rudimentary questions to the most technical questions.”“We can make things more difficult for them if we choose to,” Barr said of the city’s relationship with Orsted.Orsted is planning to build 99 wind-powered turbines that would stretch from Atlantic City to Stone Harbor. They would be spaced about a mile apart in rows and installed in deep water 15 miles offshore. The hub of the turbine would stand 511 feet tall, with blades increasing the height to a total of 905 feet, Orsted has said.For reference sake, the tallest building in New Jersey is the 79-story 99 Hudson Street skyscraper in Jersey City. It is 900 feet high.Some members of Council and the public said in December they are worried that the turbines would easily be visible from Ocean City’s shoreline, creating a visual blight.Councilman Jody Levchuk said the turbines would be “sticking out like a sore thumb.”The 79 story “99 Hudson Street”(center) is currently the tallest building in New Jersey at 900 feet (Courtesy of Perkins Eastman)In other business Thursday, Gillian outlined Cape May County’s steps to administer the COVID-19 vaccine to local residents. He said the county has been doing a great job, but is still waiting for more vaccine to be delivered from the New Jersey Department of Health.“We’re doing everything we can to get the shots here so people can get them,” Gillian said.He noted that the county and Ocean City have all of the policies and procedures in place to administer the vaccine. Despite having to wait for more of the vaccine to arrive from the state, Gillian said, “We’re in a pretty good spot right now.”Ocean City has information at www.ocnj.us/covid19 on how residents may register to get a vaccination.First priority for the vaccine has been given to healthcare workers, first responders, the elderly and people with underlying health conditions.Barr, who has cerebral palsy, told Council that everything went well when he received his first dose of the vaccine Thursday. He strongly encouraged members of the public to be vaccinated, too.“It doesn’t hurt, and I’m feeling fine,” Barr said.Also at the meeting, Council introduced an ordinance for an emergency budget appropriation of $1.2 million to help offset a decline in city revenue caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.Frank Donato, the city’s chief financial officer, said revenue from parking operations, the municipal court, ambulance services and the Ocean City Fitness & Aquatic Center declined because of the pandemic.The $1.2 million emergency appropriation will come from the city’s budget surplus and will help lessen the impact of any local tax increase in 2021.It will allow the city to finance the shortfall using its budget fund balance, which will then be replenished in equal installments of $240,000 per year over the next five years, starting in 2022, Donato explained.“This important mechanism will alleviate what would have been a larger tax levy increase for 2021 and allows the city to spread the loss over subsequent budget cycles,” Donato wrote in a Jan. 8 memo to Council. Two possible wind farm projects could have far-reaching affects for communities in both Cape and Ocean Counties. (Image courtesy of City of Ocean City)
The in-store bakery (ISB) provides true theatre in supermarkets, encouraging retailers to maximise innovation and introduce increasingly exciting product lines. An integral part of the supermarket offering, the ISB enables consumers to indulge, experiment and enjoy the freshest of craft bakery products in-store.Celebrating the 25th anniversary of its brand this year, Délifrance says it is delighted to once again sponsor the In-Store Bakery of the Year category at the Baking Industry Awards. The award invites entry from all ISB managers who can demonstrate a well-tailored product range, good availability and ideas for maximising sales and promoting growth. In addition, judges will be looking for outstanding customer service, good team spirit and excellent management of resources or skills development.”By entering, ISB teams are contributing further to raising the profile of their expertise, their craft and their value in retail,” says Ian Dobbie, MD of Délifrance UK. “In-store bakery is a vital part of the supermarket experience and, through the Baking Industry Awards, we can strengthen the reputation and inspire appreciation of this jewel in the supermarket’s crown, while developing the possibilities ahead for offering choice, innovation and theatre to the consumer.”Délifrance grows and harvests its own wheat and has a portfolio of products that includes speciality breads, Viennoiserie, filled pastries and frozen branded breads and mini pastries. “Délifrance is today, more than ever before, the natural partner for retail ISB,” says Dobbie. “In an industry that is developing at an incredible pace, it is vital that those in-store champions, the very people in ISB who not only represent but deliver excellence, innovation, quality and expertise, are recognised and acknowledged by their peers.”
The UK military is a partner of choice for its major international allies and a resolute force for peace around the world. The UK will not waver in continuing to work with its allies to protect our mutual interests. Although run by the UK, Joint Warrior is closely aligned to NATO training aims and is included in the NATO exercise programme.Joint Warrior will take place across the UK: The Exercise will be controlled and directed from the Maritime Operations Centre at Scotland’s largest military establishment, HM Naval Base Clyde, with a range of air, surface, sub-surface, sea control and maritime security roles being rehearsed off the West Coast of Scotland. Land activity will focus on integrating with close air support at the Cape Wrath naval bombardment range and the RAF bombing range at Tain, supported by the RAF Spadeadam Electronic Warfare Training Range in Cumbria. There will be amphibious landings by Royal Marines at the MOD’s Castlemartin range in Wales and possibly also in Dumfries and Galloway. More than 10,000 military personnel, 35 warships, 5 submarines and 59 aircraft and helicopters from 13 countries will take part in Exercise Joint Warrior until 11 April.The aim of Joint Warrior is to allow the UK’s Royal Navy, Army, Royal Air Force and their allies to conduct joint operations involving different forces and units and against a range of current and future threats.Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson MP said: Led by the UK, Joint Warrior allows key NATO allies to tackle complex warfare scenarios to ensure that the international community stands fit and ready to work to face any threat together. Air units will coordinate with maritime and land forces, exercising Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR), air defence, air mobility and attack. Aircraft will operate from RAF Lossiemouth, Prestwick and Stornoway airports as well as from RAF Leeming, RAF Coningsby, RAF Mildenhall, RAF Marham and RAF Brize Norton. There following nations are taking part in Exercise Joint Warrior: Turkey, Poland, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, the UK and the US.Together these allies and partner nations will deploy 10,300 armed forces personnel (at Sea 6,500 personnel, Land 3,000 personnel and Air 800 personnel)After an initial briefing weekend at HMNB Clyde, the exercise splits its participants into two opposing Task Forces starting in the Scottish Exercise Areas (water and airspace generally to the West of Scotland, particularly The Minches). As the exercise progresses elements of the Task Forces will progress south to conduct an amphibious exercise off the South West Coast of Wales.
BIG Something and The Fritz convened last weekend, treating fans at the Charleston Pour House in Charleston, SC to an explosive display of jam rock music. The evening started with a set from The Fritz, the funky crew based out of Asheville, who even included a start/stop jam session where they would freeze in the style of the mannequin challenge! The night continued with BIG Something, another quickly-rising jam group out of NC. They worked covers of “Burning Down The House” and “Sympathy For The Devil” into their setlist. Woo woo! They also were joined by Fritz’s Jamar Woods on a rendition of “My Volcano,” bringing the house down with the great collaboration.Check out a full gallery from this exciting night of music, courtesy of Ellison White Photography, and the BIG Something setlist below.Setlist: BIG Something | Charleston Pour House | Charleston, SC | 11/26/16Burning Down The House (Talking Heads), Blue Dream, Megalodon, My Volcano* w/ Jamar Woods, Passenger, Tumbleweed, Song for Us, Sympathy for the Devil (Rolling Stones), UFOs are Real, Bbm Funk (B flat minor), Love Generator, Julia BrownE: Give It to Me Baby (Rick James), Pinky’s RideNotes: Entire show with Todd Pettit on percussion Load remaining images
Watch Preservation Hall Jazz Band’s Hour-Long Intimate Performance In Apogee Recording Studio [Pro-Shot]March 2, 2021 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: pllavecyf.
On Morning Becomes Eclectic on KCRW, an NPR member station in Santa Monica, California, last week, the infamous Preservation Hall Jazz Band came out to talk about their latest Cuban-inspired album, So It Is, and perform material for the intimate crowd gathered at Apogee Studio—formerly the private recording studio for the iconic producer and mixer Bob Clearwater. As an Apogee Session, Preservation Hall Jazz Band performed to a small audience of less than 200 people within the recording studio, treating them to tastes of their new album along with spirited renditions of their older numbers that come straight out of the heart of New Orleans.Preservation Hall Jazz Band And Jon Batiste Team Up For Joyful New Orleans Performance [Photos]After a little under an hour of live performances, including of songs “La Malanga,” “Convergence,” and “Santiago,” host of the show Garth Trinidad takes over and leads members of the band in a question-and-answer session, which features a lot of information about the band’s recent time in Cuba and its influence on both the individual members of the renowned group and on the sound of their latest album, So It Is, which was announced earlier in the year in February and formally released toward the end of April.Preservation Hall Jazz Band Announces New Album, Shares First Track [Listen]The episode was aired on public radio earlier in the week, while the full video of performance was recently released on KCRW’s website.
