A new study looks at why Pacific Cod stocks are crashing in the Gulf of Alaska

first_imgFisheries | SouthwestA new study looks at why Pacific Cod stocks are crashing in the Gulf of AlaskaFebruary 13, 2018 by Mitch Borden, KMXT-Kodiak Share:Fishing boats in Kodiak. (Photo by James Brooks/KMXT)A new study in Kodiak will hopefully shed some light on what Pacific cod go through when they’re young.“We don’t know how they do in the winter. Where they are. What they are eating. What their energetic requirements are.”One of the leaders of the project, Mike Litzow is a researcher for the University of Alaska Fairbanks based in Kodiak.He said the recent crash in the Pacific cod population in the Gulf of Alaska was a wake-up call that there’s a lot to be learned about the early life stages of Pacific cod.A few years ago a body of warm water settled in the gulf and it may have made it difficult for juvenile cod to survive.“The operating hypothesis right now is that you can warm the temperatures up and they’ll survive if there’s enough food, but there wasn’t enough food to meet those requirements.”The National Marine Fisheries Service, according to Litzow, recently found that the Pacific cod population had dropped by about 60 percent since 2015.The North Pacific Fisheries Pacific Council reduced the amount of Pacific cod that can be caught by commercial fishermen in the Gulf of Alaska by about 80 percent because of the crash.The decrease in cod will be hard for Kodiak fisherman because Pacific Cod is one of the bigger fisheries in the region.Litzow thinks Kodiak will have to face the possibility that more fishery disasters could be in its future because of climate change.“In coming years and decades for Kodiak, we have to think about there being more events like this and more unusual temperatures and more surprises like the pink salmon return in 2016 or this cod collapse.”Litzow hopes his research will help Kodiak adapt to a changing marine environment.The study will begin later this month.Share this story:last_img read more

first_imgCoronavirus | NorthwestTraveler to Kotzebue is the third case of COVID-19 in Northwest Arctic BoroughJune 4, 2020 by Wesley Early, KOTZ – Kotzebue Share:Kotzebue as seen from the road east of town (Photo by Zachariah Hughes/Alaska Public Media)A third person has tested positive for COVID-19 in the Northwest Arctic Borough according to Maniilaq Association, the regional health care provider.The individual arrived in Kotzebue on Monday, June 1. They were tested upon arrival, and the results came back positive on Thursday from the Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage. While results from performing a rapid test can be processed the same day by Maniilaq, health officials recently said they have a shortage of those tests.Maniilaq officials say once the person was located, they were brought to the local respiratory clinic before being taken to the Nullagvik hotel where they are quarantining.Officials are still conducting contact tracing to see if the individual came into contact with anybody while in Kotzebue.This is the second positive case of COVID-19 to occur in Kotzebue, and the third in the Maniilaq service area, which covers the Northwest Arctic Borough and the village of Point Hope. The first case in Kotzebue was on May 20; the second regional case occurred when a resident of the village of Kivalina tested positive in Anchorage the same week.Note: An earlier version of this story said that the first case of COVID-19 in Kotzebue was on March 20. It was on May 20. The story has been corrected.Share this story:last_img read more

The firm said in July that profits would be in the upper end of market expectations, and subsequently announced in October that full-year profits would be ahead of expectations. The surge in the company’s stock also made it one of the top gainers on the London Stock Exchange in trading yesterday. The share price finished the day 11.3 per cent up at 304p.Panmure Gordon analysts Adrian Kearsey and Paul Jones switched the recommendation from “hold” to “buy” at the news, saying: “An unexpected update from Robert Walters reveals trading for the current year much better than anticipated, and we upgrade accordingly. We believe im­provements are across the board in terms of geography, though mainly permanent rather than temporary – which bodes well for market confidence going forwards and suggests an on-going improved outlook.”Robert Walters operates 53 offices in 24 countries worldwide. It specialises in the placement of professionals across the industries of accountancy and finance, banking, engineering, HR, IT, legal, sales and marketing, secretarial and support, and supply chain and procurement. The recruiter’s eponymous chief executive, Robert Walters, told City A.M. in October that he expected real-term pay to rise next year – at least in financial services, where a shortage of skills may push up wages. center_img Thursday 4 December 2014 8:25 pm by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTele Health DaveRemember Pierce Brosnan’s Wife?

Steve Jobs – The Musical: An opera about the Apple founder’s life is coming in 2017

first_imgA Steve Jobs musical is coming in 2017, after the Santa Fe Opera commissioned a piece about the Apple founder’s life.The opera, due to launch in Los Angeles, will focus on the man behind the Mac, exploring the late entrepreneur’s personal relationships, with his wife, but also the daughter he initially rejected. Composer Mason Bates, who’s also a popular electronic music DJ, told the LA Times he was inspired by the creative tech community in the Bay Area:I thought there could be a way to write something about a creative technologist who would be the focus of a story. And Steve Jobs touches on the creative, technological and human side of things.The opera, given the working title “The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs” is far from the first adaptation of the entrepreneur’s life after his death in 2011. A film starring Ashton Kutcher was released in 2013, and a second biopic with Michael Fassbender as Jobs is slated to open this autumn.It will, however, be the first attempt to set Jobs’ life to music.Bates will be working alongside libretto writer Mark Campbell and director Charles MacKay to create the musical that the Santa Fe Opera summarises thus:The opera starts at a moment in Jobs’ life when he must face his own mortality and circles back to the events and people in his past that shaped and inspired him: his father Paul, Zen Buddhism, his relationship with a woman whose child he initially disowned, his quick rise and fall as mogul, and – most importantly – his wife Laurene, who showed him the power of love and connection whatsapp More From Our Partners I blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comInstitutional Investors Turn To Options to Bet Against AMCvaluewalk.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgWhite House Again Downplays Fourth Possible Coronvirus Checkvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSwift VerdictChrissy Metz, 39, Shows Off Massive Weight Loss In Fierce New PhotoSwift VerdictMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekPost FunKate & Meghan Are Very Different Mothers, These Photos Prove ItPost FunComedyAbandoned Submarines Floating Around the WorldComedyGameday NewsNBA Wife Turns Heads Wherever She GoesGameday Newszenherald.comMeghan Markle Changed This Major Detail On Archies Birth Certificatezenherald.comEquity MirrorThey Drained Niagara Falls — They Weren’t Prepared For This Sickening DiscoveryEquity MirrorTheFashionBallAlica Schmidt Is The Most Beautiful Athlete To ExistTheFashionBall Steve Jobs – The Musical: An opera about the Apple founder’s life is coming in 2017 Share Clara Guibourg center_img whatsapp Friday 7 August 2015 11:26 am Show Comments ▼ Tags: Applelast_img read more

News / More blanked sailings and volume volatility – ‘that is simply the new norm’

first_img© Anekoho By Sam Whelan 07/09/2020 Container terminals should “get used to blanked sailings and volume volatility”, while shifting trade flows could benefit hub ports over gateways.According to Lars Jensen, CEO of SeaIntelligence Consulting, liner industry consolidation has been “phenomenal” in allowing carriers to manage capacity through blanked sailings, with the bumper profits seen in Q2 likely to ensure the frequent withdrawal of capacity becomes a mainstay.“Ports and terminals have to get used to a market with increased usage of blanked sailings – that is simply the new norm,” Mr Jensen said at the Container xChange Digital Container Summit.And, assessing the long-term shipping trends from the Covid-19 crisis, Mr Jensen said ports would also need to grapple with increased volume volatility.“The short-term inventory-impact on demand is substantial,” he explained. “The large growth in container volumes, especially on the transpacific now, is to a significant degree, very likely driven by inventory needs, which means the effect will be temporary and we are going to see a high degree of volume volatility.”Mr Jensen said the success of consolidation among major carriers operating on the deepsea trades would likely trigger an additional wave of mergers and acquisition activity among niche and regional players.“You still have very fragmented intra-regional markets in Asia, Europe and the Americas, so what is very likely to unfold over the next five years is another consolidation round, this time among intra-regional carriers – although it’s questionable to what degree the major global carriers will play a part.”Nevertheless, he said, ports and terminals would face a market in which carriers were more flexible in their transhipment patterns, and could “more quickly shift volumes around.”Volumes are also shifting as a result of the trade war and the current rush to diversify supply chains. Mr Jensen said this would provide opportunities for some shipping lines and ports, because, for example, there were many fewer US imports from China, but the overall quantity did not decline.“The only thing that happened is that these goods were shipped from Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines, etc, but they still get on a transpacific vessel. It’s an opportunity for other ports in other countries, and you see an uptick in feeder services, as trade tends to be more dispersed, rather than flowing between a few individual large port pairs.”Indeed, according to terminal operator PSA, hub-and-spoke transhipment ports have “performed better” than gateways. Head of group business development Wan Chee Foong said: “The demand and supply shocks have certainly been disruptive, but there is a silver lining – it has reinforced the importance of hub ports, which, in general, have performed better than gateway ports.“They have been especially critical in keeping global trade and supply chains connected and moving during the pandemic.”last_img read more

Facebook And what an incredible game of football it was.It had everything – penalties, goals, red cards, black cards and a dramatic finish that saw one team come from five points down to snatch a draw.Padraig Clancy’s Graiguecullen looked dead and buried with 54 minutes on the clock as Killeshin led by five points.But a late late goal, coupled with incredible points from Jamie Parr means the sides will have to meet again tonight.Graiguecullen will go into tonight’s game without corner back Bobby Doyle as he will be serving a suspension following the red card he picked up late in the drawn game.But after escaping the last day, they will probably be happy to have another bite at the cherry.Key forward Ambrose Doran got a few more minutes under his belt too as he continues his comeback from an injury lay off and he should be capable of more tonight.On the Killeshin side, they have a full deck to choose from and will be kicking themselves that they didn’t get through the last day.David Aston was their stand out player but they will have to find a way to get more out of Eoin Lowry and Evan Lowry who were on fire in the opening two rounds.Maurice Brown’s men did have to contend with the five week break before the drawn game and will have come on a lot for that game.Expect this to be extremely close and Graiguecullen will be hoping to get more ball into Aaron Forbes and will need big games from the likes of Mark Timmons, Brian Byrne and Shane O’Neill.While Killeshin will require more of the same from David Aston and Mark McDermott along with improvement from the Lowry brothers.And perhaps the fact they have more scope for improvement tips things their way.Verdict: KilleshinSEE ALSO – Noel and Marie Tuohy speak about ‘The Town’ documentary and what it means for Portlaoisecenter_img RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR TAGSGraiguecullen v KilleshinLaois SFC 2018 Facebook Previous articleIn Pictures: Former pub/bar in Rathdowney with brilliant potential is for saleNext articleDeaths in Laois – Wednesday, September 19, 2018 Alan HartnettStradbally native Alan Hartnett is a graduate of Knockbeg College who has worked in the local and national media since 2008.

Imig Music Building construction: Six months in

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail The view from behind Imig off Wardenburg Drive Published: Aug. 6, 2019 • By Jessie Bauters The view of the on-site cement mixers and the future Chamber Hall If you’ve been around campus this summer, you probably watched as the gaping hole that had appeared south of Imig Music Building in the spring slowly disappeared with the warmer weather.That’s because as Music Buffs have been off performing in summer festivals or interning at opera companies and orchestras, an army of engineers, architects, carpenters and contractors has been working diligently through the heat of summer to make the College of Music expansion come to life.“Our contractors are making great progress, and it’s exciting to really start seeing the building take shape.”Senior Associate Dean John Davis has been doing regular walkthroughs of the site along Wardenburg Drive since construction began in January. He says that although crews lost about two weeks due to snow during late spring, now that the ground level is finished, weather-related delays should be minimized going forward. As you can see from the photos below, first-floor beams are going up and outer walls will start to appear next—just in time for students and faculty to return to campus later this month. Davis says the effort has been as heavy a metaphorical lift as the steel beams that make up the skeleton of the expansion. “It’s incredibly complex and vast. There are so many people involved: electrical, plumbing, OIT, the architects, the construction crews. They all have to be on the same page about everything.”Through it all, the architecture firm that dreamed up the design, Pfeiffer Architects, has been working closely with every stakeholder to get things just right—including the CU Boulder campus architects at Facilities Management.“The campus planners and architects are involved from the very beginning to make sure the design matches the rest of the campus,” Davis says.That trademark CU style—sandstone brick, limestone trim and red clay roof tiles—has been around for about 100 years. In response to calls for a campus master plan, Philadelphia firm Day and Klauder proposed the unique architectural design in 1919 based on local resource availability and the stunning backdrop of the Flatirons. And the new wing of the College of Music will fall right in line with that plan.“The great thing about having that CU connection is that the campus planners become our eyes and ears with Pfeiffer and Adolfson & Peterson Construction,” Davis says. “They’re really good at what they do. They made a point to truly understand us and our needs. I feel like they know our college as well as we do.” The campus support, he adds, has been a hallmark of the project from its inception. “Not only have they worked with us throughout on the new building, they also made space available for us while we’re displaced.”Davis says the grand new entryway to the building, in addition to being a fitting welcome to members of the college community, will be a fitting gateway to the CU Boulder campus as well.“Patrons are going to feel like it’s a more special place. It’ll still have the history, but it’ll be much more welcoming and classy. It’ll inspire a lot of people.”And most importantly, when the expansion opens a year from now, it will be a source of pride for all the musicians who will call it home over the College of Music’s second century.“The facilities will be something we can be proud of, especially knowing that the campus and the community value what we’re doing.”Get a bird’s eye view of the construction 24 hours a day and read more about the expansion and what’s coming to the College of Music at the Expanding Imig Music Building page.
