Antarctic winter tropospheric warming – the potential role of polar stratospheric clouds, a sensitivity study

first_imgOver the last 30 years, Antarctic mid-tropospheric temperatures in winter have increased by 0.5 K per decade, the largest regional tropospheric warming observed. Over this period, amounts of polar stratospheric cloud(PSC) have also increased, as rising CO2 concentrations cooled the stratosphere. By imposing an idealisation of these increases in PSC within the radiation scheme of an atmosphere-only general circulation model, we find that they could have contributed to the observed warming. The present generation of global climate models do not properly represent PSCs, and so these results demonstrate the need to improve the representation of PSCs. Copyright.

Poultney launches free downtown Wi-Fi zone

first_imgThe e-Vermont Community Broadband Project will join with local leaders in Poultney on September 8 to officially launch the community’s downtown wireless Internet zones. Irene showed how important the Internet is for communication. This new tool will expand public accessibility and offer an additional option for residents and tourists to connect their laptops and smart phones 24/7. Early response to the project has been overwhelmingly positive, with more than 100 users logging onto Poultney Wi-Fi during its testing stage and some businesses planning to purchase laptops or work stations for customers to use.Inspired by Wireless Woodstock, the free service will also highlight local events, weather, businesses, services, and community organizations (at www.poultneywifi.com(link is external)). The zone extends the Poultney Public Library’s wireless signal along Main Street from Maple Street to Beaman Street.Poultney was one of the first 12 towns to participate in the e-Vermont project, working over the last year to close the digital divide through innovative use of Internet tools and training. The town received computers for their libraries and schools as well as training for teachers, businesses, and the general public. This Wi-Fi zone builds upon the equipment and training components of the project to enable citizens to more easily access the Internet.‘e-Vermont’s assistance in bringing laptops to the library dramatically increases our capacity to help people get online,’ said Poultney Public Library Director Rebecca Cook. ‘At the same time, Poultney Wi-Fi is helping downtown visitors access the Internet regardless of library hours.’The Wi-Fi zone runs on Anaptyx wireless hardware, which was purchased and installed by e-Vermont. The network can easily be expanded to cover a larger geographic area should the local community decide to do so in the future.The Poultney project is led by the Poultney Public Library, which is looking for sponsors to help carry the initiative into the future.The e-Vermont Community Broadband Project is a partnership led by the Vermont Council on Rural Development, and is made up of the Vermont State Colleges, the Vermont Department of Libraries, the Vermont Department of Public Service, Vermont Small Business Development Center, the Snelling Center for Government, Front Porch Forum, and Digital Wish.For current information visit e-Vermont at www.e4vt.org(link is external) or contact e-Vermont Community Director Seán Sheehan at 802-225-6156 or by email at [email protected](link sends e-mail).

Moses is not Hughes’ main focus

first_img Hughes said: “We had a poor day on Wednesday, with a couple of breaks. Dionatan Teixeira got stood on and broke a bone in his foot, so he is going to be out for six to eight weeks I think. “Marko Arnautovic has broken his hand, but we’re hopeful the cast he has got is going to be okay for him and he will be allowed to play with it.” Teixeira has joined Robert Huth (calf), Glenn Whelan (broken leg) and Peter Odemwingie (knee) on the sidelines. Whelan was included in the Republic of Ireland squad announced last week and Hughes has emphasised that Stoke do not feel the midfielder is ready for action. Asked if Whelan had been withdrawn from the Ireland squad, Hughes said: “No, I don’t think so, but as a club we don’t think he is ready. “He is training with the physios and making good progress, but he has not joined in any training sessions with us and there is not a plan to do that. “Probably Ireland are within their rights to call him up to be assessed, but our view is that he is not ready – if we had a game this time next week, he wouldn’t be playing for us because it would be too much of a risk. “I’m sure Glenn will meet up with Ireland and then their FA will have to make the correct decision. “Our medical department have spoken to their doctor, giving updates. We haven’t tried to influence that decision as yet.” Meanwhile, Hughes is set to speak to referees’ chief Mike Riley next week about “observations” he has made in recent Stoke games. The Potters boss was critical of referee Chris Foy for taking taking no action over West Ham midfielder Alex Song’s rash-looking tackle on Stoke forward Mame Biram Diouf in the build-up to the visitors’ first goal during last weekend’s match. And in terms of speaking to Professional Game Match Officials Limited head Riley, Hughes said on Friday: “I think there are meetings planned for next week, just because we felt we had observations that we made as a club in certain games, and we just need a little bit of clarification. “We’re pleased they have accepted our invitation and we can have conversations early next week I think.” Press Association Asked for his thoughts about the situation at his press conference to preview Sunday’s Barclays Premier League clash at Tottenham, Hughes said of Nigeria international Moses: “He is absolutely right in saying that he is still a Chelsea player. “We are delighted with what he is producing and that was the key from everybody’s point of view – that he would come here, play games, and get back on track. “Chelsea wanted him to get his confidence levels up again. So as we stand here and now, I think everyone is winning. “But further than that, you can’t really comment. “He is certainly enjoying his time here, but his parent club have benefited as well and we are not at the point yet where we are going to have conversations about Victor’s future, because it is not the right time to do it.” Stoke have striker Peter Crouch and defenders Phil Bardsley and Marc Muniesa back available for Sunday’s game, while forward Marko Arnautovic remains in line to feature despite breaking his hand. Former Spurs man Crouch and Bardsley sat out the 2-2 home draw with West Ham last Saturday due to suspensions, while Muniesa was nursing an ankle problem. Although Arnautovic is not expected to be kept out by the injury he suffered in training earlier this week, the same cannot be said of defender Dionatan Teixeira, who broke his foot on the same day and is set to be out for six to eight weeks. Moses has shone in Hughes’ team since joining on a season-long loan from the Blues over the summer. But it was suggested this week that the 23-year-old winger currently views his long-term future as being with the London outfit, with him being quoted as saying on the matter: “I’m still a Chelsea player.” Stoke boss Mark Hughes has stressed now is not the right time for discussions with Chelsea about whether Victor Moses might stay with the Potters beyond his current loan deal. last_img read more

MBB : Jardine’s mistakes prove costly in frustrating loss to Golden Eagles

first_imgCLEVELAND — The brash, bumptious attitude was missing. For 34 games this season — 27 wins, seven losses — it was there in front of Scoop Jardine’s locker. Win or lose, always the same display.Sunday, though, was different. Sunday, Jardine sat slumped in front of his locker in a chair. He spoke in a low, muted voice instead of the usual upbeat, animated tone. He had to reflect, not look ahead.‘Just sucks to lose,’ Jardine said. ‘There’s just so much you can say right now. Especially when we had the game won. It’s tough.’In a game full of Syracuse mistakes, point guard Jardine made a select few that proved to be key and helped cost his team a third consecutive trip to the Sweet 16. In SU’s 66-62 season-ending loss to Marquette in the third round of the NCAA Tournament, Jardine finished with just six points and six assists in 36 minutes.More glaring, though, were the three turnovers and the poor shooting night. He shot 2-of-8 from the field, including just 1-of-5 from beyond the 3-point line. And one decision in particular — his decision to shoot a perhaps rushed 3-pointer the possession after Marquette’s Darius Johnson-Odom hit the eventual game-winner — had him questioning his decisions.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘Shot right there that I usually take — and I usually make,’ Jardine said. ‘But at that time, I probably should have tried to get to the rim.’In the first half, Jardine contributed to the Orange’s turnover-happy play after its quick 7-0 start. He forced passes that led to two consecutive giveaways. And in the second, SU’s floor general continued to make the kind of plays that made head coach Jim Boeheim issue his trademark glare from the bench.Midway through the second half, Jardine got the ball at the top of the key on the left side. Driving in, he tiptoed near the out-of-bounds line with nowhere to go. He flailed a pass up in the air for C.J. Fair, but Junior Cadougan of Marquette looked more like the intended target. Cadougan intercepted the pass and went back and forth with Jae Crowder down the court, and Crowder eventually found him underneath for a layup and foul. The free throw tied the game at 46-46.Boeheim stood up on the SU sidelines, hands on his hips.‘Our offense was fine,’ Boeheim said. ‘Except for the turnovers. The turnovers ended up being the difference in the basketball game.’Jardine was a part of the turnover that eventually led to Johnson-Odom’s second huge 3-pointer against the Orange this season, when Dion Waiters’ pass sailed and he dragged his foot backcourt.But what had Jardine and his teammates questioning him the most was his final decision that doomed Syracuse — his final 3-point attempt. Momentum gone but still with plenty of time, Syracuse had possession. Twenty-six seconds to make up a three-point deficit.‘We could have came down and got a better play,’ Waiters said. ‘But at the end of theday, it’s all adrenaline.’It was the same adrenaline Jardine felt when he made two 3s in the final minute of SU’s eventual Big East tournament loss to Connecticut. Those sent the game into overtime.This time, he had the same look as he raced down the court. He was impatient. But he was going to be the hero again.He came off a screen at the top of the key. Crowder backed off the slightest bit. Jardine saw his chance. He pulled up and fired. Off the backboard and out.‘We could have probably got a better shot off a set,’ SU forward Kris Joseph said. ‘But he made the same two shots against UConn, so you can’t really blame him for taking a shot.’The shot banged wildly off the glass with barely any chance for an offensive rebound. Cadougan secured it in his grasp for Marquette. This rebound, he wouldn’t let get away.Jardine raced again — this time helplessly — to the ball and fouled Cadougan with the game firmly in the Golden Eagles’ grasp as well.Through it all — sullen and surly in his chair— he was defiant. Marquette, he reiterated, was not the better team Sunday. Until the final minutes when, he admitted, the Golden Eagles made plays. Plays that defined both sides and eventually defined the outcome.‘We clearly were the better team,’ Jardine said. ‘They just made the better plays down the stretch to win the game.’[email protected] Published on March 20, 2011 at 12:00 pm Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Syracuse University hopes to build new Carrier Dome roof over old one

first_imgJustin Mattingly | Editor in ChiefNext draftA revised draft of the Framework will be presented to the SU community in January 2017, Sala said. That will come after a feedback phase in October-November and a review by the Campus Framework Advisory Committee in November-December.Disclaimer: The Daily Orange leases a house on Ostrom Avenue owned by Syracuse University. As part of the long-term Campus Framework implementation, the university has proposed building student housing on Ostrom Avenue where The Daily Orange currently operates. Comments Syracuse University may not have to move any home football or basketball games as a result of the upcoming Carrier Dome renovations by building the new Dome roof over the current one.In an update on the university’s infrastructure given Tuesday, SU Vice President and Chief Campus Facilities Officer Pete Sala said the university is in a “good place” when it comes to finding a plan to renovate the Dome roof, which has been the source of much debate and discussion since SU announced its intentions to renovate the campus fixture. Sala said the goal is to build the new roof over the old roof and added that Dome renovations are still “very conceptual.”The plan for the roof and its timetable have not been publicly revealed. SU announced in May that Dome roof renovations are expected to cost about $105 million with another $100 million in other improvements.The decision to replace the Dome roof was years in the making and intensified in the winter of 2014. In that time, the city and university formed a task force to look into an SU stadium. Those conversations died, however, and the university turned internal with the Campus Framework to look into the Dome renovations.The Framework is a 20-year roadmap for SU’s infrastructure and is one of three parts of Chancellor Kent Syverud’s Fast Forward initiative.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSala added in his presentation that Dome renovations are three pricing projects — the roof, the interior and the exterior. He mentioned that there’s the possibility of a bump out — a glass-based addition shown in presented renderings — to the exterior of the Dome.The update Tuesday was the first of six such presentations that will be given in the next two months. They come after summer construction updates and scrutinized communication over the University Place Promenade — the first major project of the Framework — in the spring.The next Framework update meeting will be Saturday at 11 a.m. in the 001 auditorium in the Life Sciences Complex. Five other Framework forums will be held throughout the semester in addition to four construction information sessions.Here are other noteworthy updates given Tuesday.Schine Student CenterThe 30-year-old Schine Student Center is set to be renovated as part of the Campus Framework. Sala said Tuesday that donor involvement is going to shape what’s next when it comes to the renovations of the student center.The loading docks in the back of Schine will also be removed as part of the plan.Sheraton parking garageThe renderings provided Tuesday displayed a new building where the Sheraton Syracuse University Hotel and Conference Center parking garage currently stands. The university doesn’t know what the building will be, Sala said, but commented that the parking garage is an “eyesore.”The university owns the Sheraton and as part of the Framework, plans to convert it into student housing to go along with the major goal of moving all student housing onto Main Campus.“The Arch”Updated renderings of “The Arch,” a renovated Archbold Gymnasium, were part of the presentation. The university plans to start construction on the gymnasium in December, Sala said.
