Previous Article Next Article Social care gains surge of graduatesOn 17 Feb 2004 in Personnel Today The crisis in social care recruitment could be coming to an end with newfigures showing a surge in students studying for the ‘caring’ professions. Statistics from the Universities and Colleges Admissions Services (Ucas)show that the number of social work candidates entering university this summerwill rise by 94.6 per cent to 22,101. Research by the Employers Organisation for local government (EO) shows thatlocal authority spending on social services increased by 159 per cent lastyear, but the average number of job vacancies still stand at 8.4 per cent. Vacancies remain highest in occupational therapy posts (20 per cent) andchildren’s social workers (12.6 per cent). London has the greatest number ofshortages in the UK, with the eastern region and the South West suffering thelowest vacancy rates. David Mellor, chief research officer at the EO, said the very marked risewas extremely encouraging. However, he warned that continual action was needed to ensure the professiondid not start to haemorrhage trainees as it did in the late 1990s. last_img read more

Oxygen uptake in an Antarctic collembole Cryptopygus antarcticus

May 9, 2021 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: dywkshhfy.

first_imgThe relationship between length and weight was investigated for the Antarctic springtail, Cryptopygus antarcticus Willem. The range of individuals from juvenile to adult was divided arbitrarily into five size classes, whose lengths ranged from 440-1,990 μm, and live weights from 2.2-119.5 μg. Measurements of oxygen consumption of individuals were made using a Cartesian Diver micro-respirometer at +2°, +6° and +10°C, and mean rates were calculated for each size class at each experimental temperature. These varied from 10.52-75.91 μ l× 10-4/individual and hr at +2°C, 41.40-78.04 at +6°C, and 120.81-136.60 at +10°C. These respiration data are discussed in relation to live weight and temperature, and to other work on temperate and Antarctic collembolalast_img

A case study of electron precipitation fluxes due to plasmaspheric hiss

May 9, 2021 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: dywkshhfy.

first_imgWe find that during a large geomagnetic storm in October 2011 the trapped fluxes of >30, >100, and >300 keV outer radiation belt electrons were enhanced at L=3-4 during the storm main phase. A gradual decay of the trapped fluxes was observed over the following 5–7 days, even though no significant precipitation fluxes could be observed in the Polar Orbiting Environmental Satellite (POES) electron precipitation detectors. We use the Antarctic-Arctic Radiation-belt (Dynamic) Deposition – VLF Atmospheric Research Konsortium (AARDDVARK) receiver network to investigate the characteristics of the electron precipitation throughout the storm period. Weak electron precipitation was observed on the dayside for 5–7 days, consistent with being driven by plasmaspheric hiss. Using a previously published plasmaspheric hiss-induced electron energy e-folding spectrum of E0=365 keV, the observed radiowave perturbation levels at L=3-4 were found to be caused by >30 keV electron precipitation with flux ~100 el. cm−2 s−1 sr−1. The low levels of precipitation explain the lack of response of the POES telescopes to the flux, because of the effect of the POES lower sensitivity limit and ability to measure weak diffusion-driven precipitation. The detection of dayside, inner plasmasphere electron precipitation during the recovery phase of the storm is consistent with plasmaspheric hiss wave-particle interactions, and shows that the waves can be a significant influence on the evolution of the outer radiation belt trapped flux that resides inside the plasmapause.last_img read more

Caldwell-Pope, Lakers snap Utah’s 7-game winning streak

May 8, 2021 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: dywkshhfy.

first_imgApril 8, 2019 /Sports News – Local Caldwell-Pope, Lakers snap Utah’s 7-game winning streak Jazz: Host Denver on Tuesday in their final home game of the regular season. The Lakers, beset by injuries all season, dressed only 10 players and played eight. And of those eight, only Caldwell-Pope and JaVale McGee played in the club’s opener. TIP-INS Associated Press QUITE A FEAT Rudy Gobert led Utah with 21 points and 10 rebounds, and Donovan Mitchell scored 19. Jazz coach Quin Snyder said a lack of urgency ended up costing his team. Utah, which was up 10 in the third quarter, led 85-81 early in the fourth when the Lakers scored eight straight points to take the lead. The run included 3-pointers by Mike Muscala and Caldwell-Pope. Utah would need to win its remaining two games and the Trail Blazers would have to drop their last two for the Jazz to get the fourth seed. The teams would be tied with 51-31 records, but Utah would win the tiebreaker based on a better record in the Northwest Division. Caldwell-Pope scored 18 points during the fourth quarter as Los Angeles rallied for its second consecutive win and sixth in nine games. McGee added 22 points and Alex Caruso had 18 points and 11 assists. “Regardless of where you’re seeded, you have to play well and play a certain way to win,” he said. “We’ve won some games, so sometimes that masks some things we weren’t doing well. Everyone has been talking about the winning streak, but that doesn’t mean anything.” Jemerrio Jones had 16 rebounds in his first NBA start. He is the first Lakers player with 16 or more rebounds in his first career start, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. On Friday night, the Lakers dealt the Clippers a five-point loss that put a dent in their hopes of getting anything higher than the sixth seed. FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailLOS ANGELES (AP) — Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and the Los Angeles Lakers have been out of playoff contention for the past month. They’re still playing a role in shaping the Western Conference bracket. Written by Caldwell-Pope credited the big final quarter to being able to hit shots coming off ball screens. It was a big loss for the Jazz, who fell two games behind Portland for the fourth seed in the Western Conference and home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. Jones said he didn’t find out he was starting until he got to Staples Center. “I wish I was playing like this to start the season, but now we just want to finish strong and play free,” he said. “It was my time I guess and everything happens for a reason,” he said. “I’m not scoring a lot of points so I have to do the other things. I’ve been rebounding but this is on the biggest stage.” Los Angeles extended its advantage to 106-97 with 1:57 remaining on a layup by Caldwell-Pope. The Jazz made a late run to get to 110-107 before McGee’s alley-oop put the Lakers up by more than one possession. Lakers: Muscala scored 16 points and Williams had 14. … G Lance Stephenson (sore left foot) and F Reggie Bullock (neck stiffness) did not play due to injuries. UP NEXT Caldwell-Pope scored 32 points Sunday night as the short-handed Lakers snapped Utah’s seven-game winning streak with a 113-109 victory over the Jazz. Tags: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope/Los Angeles Lakers/NBA/Utah Jazz Lakers: Finish the season Tuesday at home against Portland. Jazz: Georges Niang had 16 points and Thabo Sefolosha scored 13. … Jae Crowder, who had 11 points, hit a shot from halfcourt to end the third quarter but it was overturned when replays showed he didn’t get it off in time. … G Ricky Rubio missed the game with a bruised left quad sustained during Friday’s win over Sacramento. “I’m sure when you’re a team that is looking down the roster and looking who is playing for us, naturally you would let down a little bit. That’s part of why this is fun,” coach Luke Walton said. “It’s the type of win where we needed everyone and everyone stepped up.”last_img read more

first_img “BACKSIDE LIL” SELECTED AS RACE TRACK ANALYSTS FOR CITY COUNTY OBSERVERI’m glad to be back in Southern Indiana after 21 years traveling the country side and visiting nearly every horse track in the world. Although I can speak five (9) languages fluently, my favorite language is good ole “KENTUCKY TWANG”. All I can say about myself is, I was born, highly educated (7 college degrees) and presently living! I just can’t wait for the live meet at Ellis Park to begin.Lately I been hanging out and enjoyed connecting with my roots once again. Though I am still grieving about the passing of my 7th husband, oil man, Wolfgang Franz from Germany. Recently, I have rekindled an old flame with my high school sweetheart long time Ellis Park horse owner and trainer Kyle. We parted ways after high school due to my risky enlistment into the CIA. I’m now retired and just accepted a part time race track analyst with the City-County Observer.Oh, I want to personally thank the City County Observer for allowing me to write Handicapping articles on my predictions on upcoming winners not only at Ellis Park but also at other tracks throughout the country.I can guarantee that I know all about this subject and if you follow my predictions It’s my hope you will make a little money by doing so Bottom line there are no guarantee that you will be able win a bunch of money by doing so. Oh, I’m just a cartoon character created by the CCO so they can bring little more humor and interest for their readership. The handicapping of the races will be done by knowledgeable people. So sit back and enjoy and lets have fun at the races!Until next time, don’t take any wooden nickels! I’m on my way to give a lecture at Keeneland Race Track on “Handicapping of Races”!Amore!FOOTNOTES FROM “BACKSIDE LILHorse racing, like many sports, has its own language.

The latest on the COVID-19 vaccination effort in Indiana

April 20, 2021 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: dywkshhfy.

first_img (Photo supplied/Berrien County Health Department) Indiana is expanding coronavirus vaccinations for the second time in as many days.After dropping the eligibility age to 55 on Tuesday, the state health department has lowered it again to anyone 50 and up. Anyone over 50 can now sign up for vaccination through the state portal.And teachers of any age are eligible for a separate federal program by signing up through Kroger, Meijer or Wal-Mart.State health department chief medical officer Lindsay Weaver says the approval of the new Johnson and Johnson vaccine, and the arrival of more than 50-thousand doses in Indiana, made the rapid expansion possible. The department plans to administer 12-thousand of those doses in a three-day mass vaccination effort at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway starting Friday morning.Among those getting vaccinated Friday at the Speedway is Governor Eric Holcomb. At age 52, the latest expansion makes him eligible. He’ll be joined by Senate President Pro Tem Rod Bray (R-Martinsville) and Minority Leader Greg Taylor (D-Indianapolis); Indiana Black Legislative Caucus Chair Robin Shackleford (D-Indianapolis); and the father of Congressman Andre Carson (D).The lineup highlights the department’s efforts to overcome vaccine skepticism, especially among African-Americans. Health commissioner Kris Box says the department is watching vaccination data and reaching out to community leaders where they see gaps. Gary Health Department director Roland Walker says the infamous Tuskegee experiment, in which researchers allowed Black patients with syphilis to go untreated without telling them, still contributes to hesitancy in the African-American community. But Walker says he’s gotten his shot, and says he’s urging Gary’s heavily minority population to not only get vaccinated, but do it quickly to stay ahead of the virus’s mutations.The city and state are finalizing plans for a mass vaccination event at Calumet High School March 20 and 21. Vaccination drives are already scheduled for the weekend of March 12 at the Ivy Tech campus in Sellersburg, and at Notre Dame the weekend of March 26.The Johnson and Johnson vaccine requires only one dose instead of two, which Walker says will make it easier to vaccinate the homeless and others without ready access to health care. But Box says the federal government has advised not to expect additional doses the next couple of weeks, though shipments of the two-dose Pfizer and Moderna vaccines will continue. She says she hopes to be able to lower the minimum age for vaccination to 40 by the end of the month.Patients with a handful of underlying health conditions are already eligible regardless of age, and Weaver says the department is assessing whether to add others. But she says lowering the age to 40 will take in nine out of 10 people with the conditions the Centers for Disease Control lists as risk factors for COVID-19. Weaver says people in their 40s are three times as likely as younger patients to be hospitalized if they catch the virus, and 10 times as likely to die of it.Box says the next group will be people 40 and up. She hopes that’ll happen this month, but after a first shipment of the new Johnson and Johnson vaccine this week, she says the state’s been told not to expect more of that vaccine the next couple of weeks.State health commissioner Kris Box says she hopes to reach people in their 40s by the end of the month. And a separate federal program will allow teachers of any age to get shots at Kroger, Meijer or Wal-Mart.

‘Warming hole’ delayed climate change

March 1, 2021 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: dywkshhfy.

first_imgClimate scientists at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have discovered that particulate pollution in the late 20th century created a “warming hole” over the eastern United States — that is, a cold patch where the effects of global warming were temporarily obscured.While greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane warm the Earth’s surface, tiny particles in the air can have the reverse effect on regional scales.“What we’ve shown is that particulate pollution over the eastern United States has delayed the warming that we would expect to see from increasing greenhouse gases,” says lead author Eric Leibensperger, Ph.D. ’11, who completed the work as a Graduate School of Arts and Sciences student in applied physics at SEAS.“For the sake of protecting human health and reducing acid rain, we’ve now cut the emissions that lead to particulate pollution,” he adds, “but these cuts have caused the greenhouse warming in this region to ramp up to match the global trend.”At this point, most of the “catch-up” warming has already occurred.The findings, published in the journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, present a more complete picture of the processes that affect regional climate change. The work also carries significant implications for the future climate of industrial nations, like China, that have not yet implemented air quality regulations to the same extent as the United States.Until the United States passed the Clean Air Act in 1970 and strengthened it in 1990, particulate pollution hung thick over the central and eastern states. Most of these particles in the atmosphere were made of sulfate, originating as sulfur emissions from coal-fired power plants. Compared with greenhouse gases, particulate pollution has a very short lifetime (about one week), so its distribution over the Earth is uneven.“The primary driver of the warming hole is the aerosol pollution — these small particles,” says Leibensperger. “What they do is reflect incoming sunlight, so we see a cooling effect at the surface.”This effect has been known for some time, but the new analysis demonstrates the strong impact that decreases in particulate pollution can have on regional climate.The researchers found that interactions between clouds and particles amplified the cooling. Particles of pollution can act as nucleation sites for cloud droplets, which can in turn reflect even more sunlight than the particles would individually, leading to greater cooling at the surface.The researchers’ analysis is based on a combination of two complex models of Earth systems. The pollution data comes from the GEOS-Chem model, which was first developed at Harvard and, through a series of many updates, has since become an international standard for modeling pollution over time. The climate data comes from the general circulation model developed by NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies. Both models are rooted in decades’ worth of observational data.Since the early 20th century, global mean temperatures have risen by approximately 0.8 degrees Celsius from 1906 to 2005, but in the U.S. “warming hole,” temperatures decreased by as much as 1 degree Celsius during the period 1930–1990. U.S. particulate pollution peaked in 1980 and has since been reduced by about half. By 2010 the average cooling effect over the East had fallen to just 0.3 degrees Celsius.“Such a large fraction of the sulfate has already been removed that we don’t have much more warming coming along due to further controls on sulfur emissions in the future,” says principal investigator Daniel Jacob, the Vasco McCoy Family Professor of Atmospheric Chemistry and Environmental Engineering at SEAS.Jacob is also a professor of Earth and planetary sciences at Harvard and a faculty associate of the Harvard University Center for the Environment.Besides confirming that particulate pollution plays a large role in affecting U.S. regional climate, the research emphasizes the importance of accounting for the climate impacts of particulates in future air quality policies.“Something similar could happen in China, which is just beginning to tighten up its pollution standards,” says co-author Loretta J. Mickley, a senior research fellow in atmospheric chemistry at SEAS. “China could see significant climate change due to declining levels of particulate pollutants.”Sulfates are harmful to human health and can also cause acid rain, which damages ecosystems and erodes buildings.“No one is suggesting that we should stop improving air quality, but it’s important to understand the consequences. Clearing the air could lead to regional warming,” Mickley says.Leibensperger, Jacob, and Mickley were joined by co-authors Wei-Ting Chen and John H. Seinfeld (California Institute of Technology); Athanasios Nenes (Georgia Institute of Technology); Peter J. Adams (Carnegie Mellon University); David G. Streets (Argonne National Laboratory); Naresh Kumar (Electric Power Research Institute); and David Rind (NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies).The research was supported by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); neither EPRI nor the EPA has officially endorsed the results. The work also benefited from resources provided by Academic Computing Services at SEAS.last_img read more

UNWTO: Recommendations for Crisis Management and Accelerating Recovery in the Tourism Sector

November 18, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: dywkshhfy.

first_imgSide dish: Recognizing the diverse realities in each country as well as the emerging nature of this crisis, the document will continue to be updated. Recommendations for Action is the first comprehensive plan that governments and private sector actors can take now and in the challenging months ahead. About the Global Tourism Crisis CommitteeThe UNWTO has established a Global Tourism Crisis Committee to lead the sector in response to the COVID-19 crisis and to lay the foundations for future resilience and sustainable growth. The Committee is composed of representatives of Member States and Associate Members of the UNWTO, together with the World Health Organization (WHO), the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The private sector is represented by the International Airports Council (ACI), the International Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) to ensure a coordinated and effective response. The new guide provides 23 applicable recommendations, divided into three key areas: Recognizing that tourism and transport have been one of the hardest hit of all sectors, the recommendations are designed to support governments, the private sector and the international community. Source and photo: UNWTO – Recommendations for Action Preparing for tomorrow: Emphasizing the unique ability of tourism to drive local and national growth, the recommendations call for greater emphasis to be placed on the sector’s contribution to sustainable development and building resilience to learning from the lessons of the current crisis. The recommendations call on governments and private sector actors to draw up preparedness plans and seize this opportunity to move to a circular economy. The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) has issued a series of recommendations calling for urgent and strong support so that the global tourism sector not only recovers from the unprecedented challenge of COVID 19, but also “returns better”. The recommendations are the first result of the Global Tourism Crisis Committee, established by the UNWTO with representatives from across the tourism sector and from the wider United Nations system. Providing incentives and speeding up recovery: This set of recommendations emphasizes the importance of providing financial incentives, including favorable tax policies, lifting travel restrictions as soon as the health situation allows, promoting visa facilitation, strengthening marketing and consumer confidence, in order to speed up recovery. The recommendations also call for tourism to be placed at the heart of national policies and recovery action plans. Crisis management and mitigation: Key recommendations relate to job retention, support for self-employed workers, ensuring liquidity, promoting skills development and reviewing taxes, fees and regulations related to travel and tourism. The recommendations were made because of the high probability of a global economic recession. Due to its labor-intensive nature, tourism will be severely affected and millions of jobs will be affected. “These special recommendations give countries a list of possible measures to help our sector maintain jobs and support companies. Mitigating the impact on employment and liquidity, protecting the most vulnerable and preparing for recovery must be our key priorities. “, said UNWTO Secretary-General Zurab Pololikashvili, adding that the full impact of the corona crisis on global tourism is still unknown, but now it is necessary to support the tourism sector and prepare for economic recovery.last_img read more
