Abrupt changes in high-latitude nutrient supply to the Atlantic during the last glacial cycle

first_imgThe supply of nutrients to the low-latitude thermocline is largely controlled by intermediate-depth waters formed at the surface in the high southern latitudes. Silicic acid is an essentialmacronutrient for diatoms, which are responsible for a signifi cant portion of marinecarbon export production. Changes in ocean circulation, such as those observed during thelast deglaciation, would infl uence the nutrient composition of the thermocline and, therefore,the relative abundance of diatoms in the low latitudes. Here we present the fi rst recordof the silicic acid content of the Atlantic over the last glacial cycle. Our results show thatat intermediate depths of the South Atlantic, the silicic acid concentration was the same atthe Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) as it is today, overprinted by high silicic acid pulses thatcoincided with abrupt changes in ocean and atmospheric circulation during Heinrich Stadialsand the Younger Dryas. We suggest these pulses were caused by changes in intermediatewater formation resulting from shifts in the subpolar hydrological cycle, with fundamentalimplications for the nutrient supply to the Atlantic.last_img read more

Union under fire over extremist invitations

first_imgHe added, “I’d want to know their reasoning as to why they were invited. It just seems to be courting controversy.”NUS President Gemma Tumelty promised that any appearance by Irving or Griffin would be strongly opposed.”The Holocaust denier David Irving and leader of the fascist BNP Nick Griffin have no place in our multicultural society, let alone on our diverse university campuses. NUS utterly opposes racism and fascism wherever it arises and will certainly oppose any attempt by Oxford University’s debating society to invite Irving and Griffin to speak.”We would condemn their presence on any campus and will certainly be active in campaigning to ensure that they are not given a platform at Oxford. Whenever we get confirmed information about his intended campus visit, NUS will act swiftly and severely,” she said.A spokesperson for the Union of Jewish Students (UJS) also attacked the Union’s decision to invite Irving and Griffin, and said that Irving and Griffin’s presence could be dangerous to certain minorities of students.”We absolutely don’t approve of the speakers,” he said. “Giving credibility to the Nick Griffins and David Irvings of this world has serious repercussions for Jewish students and other minorities. Where the BNP appear, we see a rise in racism, and that’s something the Oxford Union President should take into account.The Union stated that Dr Evan Harris, Liberal Democrat MP for Oxford West and Abingdon, would also speak at the forum alongside author Anne Atkins and student debaters drawn from the Union’s members.”I have agreed to debate the subject ‘This house believes that even extremists have a right to freedom of expression within the law’ at the Oxford Union,” Dr Harris said. “It follows logically that I will not seek to support extremists by refusing to debate free speech with them.”Extremist or offensive, but otherwise lawful speech should be ignored, ridiculed or argued against. It should not be shut down or driven underground. It is counter-productive to make free speech martyrs out of these people,” he added.In 2001, Union President Amy Harland cancelled a planned appearance by Irving after protests and fierce debate among the University community.The University and College Union stated that the Union was repeating its previous error.A spokesman said, “We have been here before when Irving was invited to speak in 2001. The outcry that followed ensured that invitation was withdrawn. We do not understand why seven years on, with Irving’s academic credentials far from enhanced, the Oxford Union wishes to repeat that mistake.”In January 2007, Griffin was prevented from taking part in an Oxide Radio interview due to OUSU’s no-platform policy, which denies OUSU venues and services to those with fascist views.by David Matthews Student groups are to launch protests after the Oxford Union invited controversial historian David Irving and British National Party leader Nick Griffin to take part in a free speech forum.OUSU President Martin McCluskey will chair an emergency meeting of sabbatical officers today, having vocally condemned the move to members of the Oxford University Labour Club on Wednesday night.Both the National Union of Students (NUS) and the Union of Jewish Students have also promised to stage demonstrations if Irving and Griffin speak on 26 November. Irving was imprisoned in Austria in 2006 for Holocaust denial, although at his trial he recanted his views, and is now absolutely without doubt that the Holocaust took place. Griffin has previously referred to the Holocaust as the “Holohoax”.Oxford Union President Luke Tryl said, “I can confirm that we have sent invitations and are in discussion with David Irving and Nick Griffin for our free speech forum on 26 November.”He defended his decision to invite them, saying, “It’s nothing to do with the Holocaust or racism. We always believe that we are the last bastion of free speech, and we want to explore where the limits of that lie through our forum.”I expected OUSU to condemn this. I hope they’ll recognise that this isn’t being done because I sympathise with Irving or Griffin. I utterly condemn these people’s abhorrent views, but we are a debating society committed to free speech.”McCluskey claimed that any appearance would discredit the Union. “I find it utterly appalling,” he said. “It sets a really disturbing precedent. The Union being a student run society, it sends out the wrong sort of message. All this is doing is giving them a platform in a prestigious arena.”I think as a Union member it’s despicable that my membership fee and the membership fees of hundreds of freshers will be paying for hospitality for Holocaust deniers.”last_img read more

PHONY PROPHETS PAINTING AN ALTERNATE GLOBAL WARMING REALITY?

first_imgBy Susan Stamper BrownOn December 28, President Trump wrote on Twitter: “In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record. Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against. Bundle up!”Predictably, social media lit up with comments by agitated alarmists who apparently believe everything, including the gas problem their great uncle had during Christmas dinner, is caused by global warming. They won’t be happy until the Earth freezes over and everyone dies.They must have missed the news that Escambia County Florida had nearly two inches of snow on December 10, Erie, Pennsylvania just broke a 59-year-old snowfall record and  International Falls, Minnesota had a record-breaking 37 degrees below zero Christmas week. This happened thanks to a phenomenon scientists call a “Rossby wave” — not global warming — whereby Alaska blows it’s arctic air south while simultaneously “inhaling” warm air from the tropics. We get a break from the cold while folks in the Lower 48 get to experience what living in Alaska is like without buying a plane ticket. You’re welcome.Besides record-breaking cold, alarmists ignore that snowfall has increased for more than a century.Up here in my little slice of paradise, researchers were recently shocked that the snowfall has doubled on Mt. Hunter in the Alaska range since the mid-1800s. In that same time frame, southcentral Alaska has experienced a 117 percent increase in winter snowfall and a 49 percent increase in summer snowfall. In addition, from 1950 to 2011, many coastal Alaskan towns have experienced winter snow increases ranging from 26 percent in Yakutat to 67 percent in Kodiak. On December 6, 2017, in the Chugach mountains I call home, Thompson Pass, experienced one of history’s most intense snowfalls at a rate of 10 inches per hour. That’s a record even for Thompson Pass which often gets between 600 to 900 inches of snow per year.Additionally, the sea ice improved this year. The Anchorage Daily News reports that Alaska’s “cool late-summer weather over the central Arctic Ocean helped preserve sea ice, slowing its melting enough to rank this year’s annual ice minimum as only the eighth lowest in the satellite record, far from the worst it’s been.” Record cold. Record snow. Recovering sea ice. But, things are not always as they appear. The U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space and Technology announced in February 2017 they are investigating the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) for alleged climate data manipulation after whistleblowers stepped forward, including Dr. John Bates, former principal scientist at the National Climatic Data Center in Asheville North Carolina who claims NOAA scientists put a “thumb on the scale” to favor their global warming argument. Maybe this is not about science at all. Maybe it’s more about phony prophets painting fake pictures to produce an alternate reality.Alarmists are not interested in the indisputable evidence the Earth goes through cyclical periods of cooling and warming. The Earth experienced periods of glaciation, then melting, long before the construction of Al Gore’s energy-devouring Nashville home and Leonardo DiCaprio’s excessive use of private jets.Gore said the Arctic would be ice free by 2014 and the guy Democrats call a “prophet,” James Hansen, former director of NASA’s Godard Institute for Space Studies, predicted the Arctic ice would melt by the end of 2017. Oops.Hansen recently published a paper suggesting we are now on the brink of a short ice age caused by…wait for it…global warming. He claims global temperatures are an “unreliable diagnostic of planetary condition as the ice melt increases” and predicts “large scale regional cooling by mid-century” for the North Atlantic and Southern oceans.Obviously, climate alarmists have the same answer for every weather pattern, so the rest of us normal folks should forget them and focus on reality. Right about now, a little global warming sounds nice as we dream of white sandy beaches, not the white powdery stuff outside our windows waiting to be shoveled.FOOTNO)TE: ©2018 Susan Stamper Brown Susan lives in Alaska and writes about culture, politics and current events.

Creative thinking

first_imgNick Sandler has an enviable job. Without having to stress about the day-to-day hassles of running a business, Nick’s remit is to be ‘creative’. In fact, it is in his job title: ‘creative chef’ for sandwich chain Pret A Manger. This means working in the kitchen all day developing original ideas using new and interesting ingredients. Lucky for some.“Our food meetings are great fun, they really are,” he says, clearly delighting in the role, which he took up at the end of 2004. “It’s the high point of my week and I’m working up to it the whole time, trying to think of how to sell ideas to the other members of the team.”Whereas some companies are happy to trust their faithful old recipes and customer favourites to steer their business, Pret displays an almost obsessive-compulsive compunction to tinker with its products.In the first three weeks of January alone it made 28 changes to its products. These ranged from small changes in seasoning to replacing lines with new products, to introducing four own-label drinks. Creating novel yet commercial products with strong branding and company ethics – including clean labels, eco-friendly packaging and left-overs distributed among homelessness charities – has seen the company carve out a niche for itself in the high street sandwich trade, not to mention a loyal customer base.National presencePret was established as a one-off shop by university friends Julian Metcalfe and Sinclair Beecham in Victoria, London, in 1986. The chain, which now has a strong grip on the capital, has since branched out nationally. It now has 150 outlets in places such as Brighton, Manchester, Birmingham, York, Leeds, Glasgow and Edinburgh, as well as stores in New York and Hong Kong.Today, Pret turns over around £150m a year. In 2001 McDonald’s bought a 33% stake for £50m. Pret constantly reviews its use of ingredients and holds twice-weekly food meetings where Mr Sandler, the food team and Julian Metcalfe, now creative director, thrash out their latest ideas. One new ingredient that Pret is pioneering is a mayonnaise replacement for sandwiches and salads derived from a Lebanese recipe that uses labna – a thick yoghurt. Branded Yummy Yoghurt, it is still relatively high in fat, but contains less than mayonnaise. With a distinctive creamy flavour and slight tang, its healthy bacteria content also appeals to consumers with a probiotic bent.Food manager Ian Watson co-ordinates the whole team, and Nick works closely with development chef Richard Edney, making as many different salad and sandwich combinations as possible until they hit upon the jackpot. “If we’ve got a new roasted tomato in, we’ll try to use it in every possible way,” says Nick.The technical department tests all new sandwich creations for shelf-life, weights and measurements. The sandwiches are made fresh daily and are not stored overnight. An eight-hour shelf-life means the avocado cannot turn brown, the bread should not become soggy and the product must retain its visual appeal for the duration of its time on-shelf.The department will also check the salt content. Pret has taken a responsible approach to salt by reducing the amount in all of its key products. But Mr Sandler explains that salt is not the be-all and end-all of flavouring a product. “The thing about salt is that consumers can’t take it out, but they can add it if they want to,” he reasons. “We always look at getting other flavours into our sandwiches, such as lemon juice, or more pepper, or more spices. We’re always looking at ‘ethnic’ ingredients, whether it is a harissa (chilli) paste from Morocco or a rendang curry paste from Malaysia. We will never shy away from using these sorts of flavours.”Fishing for ideasSubtler changes to existing flavours can equally pay off. Pret recently tweaked its traditionally smoked salmon by leaving on the skin that forms during smoking (called the pellicle) for a more immediate, powerful smoky flavour. Previously the subtlety of the smokiness was lost amid the other ingredients, says Mr Sandler.The choice of bread is also important for the balance of a sandwich. Careful thought goes into getting the blend between breads and fillings right, he says. “For example, when you think of chorizo or cured meats, you think baguettes. The flavours in a wholegrain bread would be too strong. So we’re always thinking about combinations.”In recent times, the company switched bread supplier from one of the big three plant bakers to a smaller scale producer – Fosters Bakery, based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire. And when sandwiches are your stock in trade it is worth getting the bread right. Mr Sandler says he has high hopes for Pret’s Artisan Baguette, trialled in selected shops in January, with a ham, egg and Italian cheese filling for £2.70. This is the latest addition to its range of 15 baguettes, 80,000 of which are sold every week.“It’s a French bread with a bit of sourdough in it – a multi-cereal, as they call it. We hope to give it wider distribution.”The recipe was devised by French catering company Le Notre and is made by French bakery Bridor based in Brittany partly from levain, with a slow fermentation process. It is hand-finished and part-baked in a stone oven, and baked-off in-store. Slim pickingsThe company is also prepared to try out new formats, such as its Slim Pret single sandwiches, which have been successful despite initial doubts.“Are people downgrading from a normal sandwich or are they upgrading from a soup?” he speculates. “How do you assess whether they are taking away from another part of the business or adding to the business as a whole? These are the questions we have to ask ourselves. But I would say it has been a success because so many people are talking about it.” He adds that the firm is set to continue with the format.In all, Pret sells 29 sandwiches, three wraps as well as the baguettes. Classic Tuna, Super Club and All Day Breakfast are three of its mainstays, but many niche products are assured of their places on the shelves too, he says. “There are some products that sell a bit less, but we have core customers that absolutely love them.”Pret’s pecan pie – an old favourite – is a case in point. By no means a best-seller, the risk of a backlash from Pret’s vocal customers meant a move to replace it was shelved. “Julian called up and said, ‘We cannot take this off the shelf!’” he recalls. Some recent cake products have been devised by Mr Sandler, but others are developed with Pret’s suppliers, such as the mixed berry doughnut. This is baked rather than fried for a lower calorie content (165 kcal) and sells for 60p. Meanwhile, pastries are sourced from outside suppliers and baked-off in-store.He says Pret is increasingly looking to use meal names with its products, such as a Mushroom Risotto soup. The one-time sandwich-only retailer will be offering a broader range of soups in the coming months. An improved range has already seen sales of soups increase from 1% to over 5% of total sales in a good week. One of the reasons, apart from landing some fantastic recipes, he says, was finding a method of serving large volumes of soup easily.“We heat up a lot of soup, put it in cups, and keep them in a hot cupboard. The last thing you want to be doing is ladling out soup at lunchtime.” It also uses this system for a range of hot wraps. The wraps are assembled, wrapped in brown paper, put in the oven for 15 minutes and then kept in a hot cabinet for up to two hours.Future horizonsKitchen staff make up most of the products daily in the in-store kitchens and the ease with which a product can be assembled informs NPD. And there is, of course, one big limit to innovation: the customer. “I don’t think we’d ever remove mayonnaise from the business completely,” he says. “There’d be a national outcry!”So what’s next on the horizon? “We’re looking at introducing more complex carbohydrates into the food with lots of colour,” he reveals. “We’re looking at more ethnic foods, mainly Mediterranean, where a lot of the healthy foods come from, like olive oils, fresh herbs, yoghurts, chickpeas and lentils.” Pret’s main focus will still be to continually upgrade its ingredient, he adds. There is even a rallying call for small ingredients suppliers to get in touch via its website.Also published online for bakers seeking sandwich inspiration is a full list of the company’s recipes. Meanwhile a Pret A Manger recipe book is in development.Finally, what is the single best tip he could offer a baker looking to revamp their sandwiches? “Julian Metcalfe has this classic comment – he’ll look at a sandwich, shake his head and say ‘too brown’. That’s one of my major defining factors when creating new sandwiches!” Nick SandlerCo-founder of SoupWorks, which specialised in selling hot soup from retail units, Nick has been creative chef at Pret A Manger since late 2004. He previously worked as a development chef for companies such as Duchy Originals, Joubere and others, and has written three books: Soup, Mushroom, and Preserved. He is presently compiling The Duchy Originals Cookbook, due to be published in September.last_img read more
