Unusual sea-floor fabric near the Bullard fracture zone imaged by GLORIA sidescan sonar

first_imgTHE tectonic fabric of the sea floor created at spreading ridges generally curves in the direction of ridge offset near transform faults, owing to the influence of shearing stress on transform faults. Here we present new GLORIA sidescan sonar images from the South American–Antarctic Ridge, showing fabric to the north of the Bullard transform with a reversed sense of curvature. This curvature, and that observed in an area of older sea floor near the eastern ridge–transform intersection, appears to result from post-emplacement deformation, caused by the transmission of shear stresses across transforms. The deformation was probably related to a major Early Miocene change in spreading direction, which would have imposed a component of compression on the transforms. Such a sense of curvature has not, to our knowledge, been observed elsewhere on the deep ocean floor, although apparently similar patterns have been reported in ophiolites.last_img read more

Starters’ orders: Sourdough September gets under way

first_imgBakers across the country will be taking part in The Real Bread Campaign’s annual celebration of genuine sourdough.Returning for its seventh year, Sourdough September highlights “the alchemy of crafting flour, water and salt into bread”.Bakers are encouraged to share their sourdough and sourdough-related activities using #SourdoughSeptember.New for 2019, The Real Bread Campaign is encouraging novices to post their #sourdoughnewbie pics, and everyone to share their #sourdoughsandwich shots.“At its simplest, genuine sourdough is made using just three ingredients,” stated the campaign.“From these, novice home bakers and true artisans alike can nurture the yeasts and bacteria naturally present in flour to foster a thriving sourdough starter culture. It’s this microbial magic that, given sufficient time, makes dough rise.”Among the activities already planned are:One Mile Bakery, Hale: Bread & Beer event exploring the long-standing relationship between brewers and bakersMa Baker, Fulham: Introduction to sourdough classThe Wholesome Weigh, Hitchin: An evening with Jo Bottrill of Jo’s Loaves, featuring her insights into real breadHive Café, Roehampton Ln, London: Sourdough tasting and starter giveaway by Eastsheen Microbakery.

Dinner encourages dialogue between pro-life and pro-choice stances

first_imgAlthough junior Natasha Reifenberg has advocated for reproductive rights in Latin America and senior Aly Cox is the president of the Notre Dame Right to Life club, the two found common ground in their views towards a criminal ban on abortion in El Salvador and coauthored an editorial expressing their opinion on the issue. Inspired by the common ground they found during this encounter, the two are planning a BeyoND the Abortion Debate dialogue dinner — cosponsored by BridgeND, Show Some Skin, We Stand For and the Notre Dame Right to Life club — to bring together pro-life and pro-choice students to discuss abortion and find areas of common ground.“[Cox] and I both feel really really strongly about the importance of dialogue,” Reifenberg said. “I think she’s someone who really understands that, because the pro-life position is the majority position at Notre Dame.”Cox said she felt it was her club’s duty to create a space for discussion between pro-life and pro-choice students who said they felt they did not have a platform from which they could discuss their views.“ … The long term goal for this project is that [Reifenberg] and I want to spread it to other college campuses and see if we can get other campuses to take up this event, whether they have a pro-life or a pro-choice majority,” Cox said. “We want to show people that whoever the majority is, [they] have the responsibility to create a positive space for this dialogue and learn how to work with minority voices on their campus.”Cox said she wanted the discussion to encourage members of the pro-life and pro-choice communities to work together — despite their differences — to serve the marginalized, especially women.“How can we make sure they are our priority and that they don’t suffer due to our inability to work together? Because that would be a very selfish decision for either side to make, that we could not work with the other side, because of our differences and then the people who suffer from that decision are poor and vulnerable women, especially those facing unplanned pregnancies,” she said.Reifenberg said she and Cox chose moderators for the discussions who would create space for compassionate discussion, rather than inflammatory debate.“ … We chose moderators who can model this idea of friendship and who understand that the whole point of this isn’t [to be] the best at arguing and to be like shutting people down … but the people who can best promote discourse around a really difficult topic,” Reifenberg said.Each table will have one pro-life and one pro-choice moderator, Cox said. The moderators will meet before the dinner to find common ground in their views.“They’re supposed to meet ahead of time to get to know each other, start to become friends, learn more about each other and learn where they have common ground so that they can be leaders at their table for discussion,” Cox said. “They’re also going to be charged with the task of making sure the conversation stays productive, doesn’t turn into a debate, and condescending commentary and tones of voice are not allowed.”Promoting future conversations beyond the discussion is “really key to the event being productive,” Cox said.“I think that those kinds of real action can be a result of these conversations start[ed] at the tables at the event on April 4, and I think it would just be a greater cause for change.” Tags: Abortion, dinner, Pro-choice, Pro-life, Right to Lifelast_img read more

GAFA, schmafa: Credit unions can do better

first_imgBy now, you’ve heard it a million times. Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon (a.k.a., GAFA) are collectively setting the standard for the modern consumer experience. If your credit union can’t create an equally compelling user experience, so the story goes, members will leave en masse to find somebody who will. That somebody might be another financial institution, or it might be some crazy fintech startup.Sounds a little scary, doesn’t it?Well, I’m here to tell you, if the GAFA folks are really the ones setting the bar for the modern consumer experience, it’s a pretty low bar.I know what you’re thinking. How can he say that? I can find anything I want on Amazon and get it in two days with free shipping, thanks to my Prime account. And Google helps me win every single bar bet. And Facebook lets me see so many cat pictures, I just always have the warm fuzzies.I’m going to leave Apple alone this time because I’ve always been able to reach a live, intelligent human being at Apple when I need to. The others … the other are like the self-service checkout at Walmart.If you have a few basic items, sure, you’ll go hit the self-checkout line to save some time and avoid having to talk to anyone. But if you have a full cart, including a lot of produce that needs to be weighed, you’ll head to a full-service checkout line lickity split.At their best, GFA (the original GAFA, minus Apple) are actually worse than the self-service checkout line at Walmart. At least at Walmart, if your Duck Dynasty underwear won’t scan, you can call someone over to help you. At GFA, you’re on your own, baby.In the case of Facebook and Google, I’m not really saying they have crappy customer service. They probably have great customer service. The problem is, you’re not the customer; you’re the product. Access to you gets bundled up and auctioned off to the highest bidder. Trying to complain to Facebook or Google is like the chicken trying to complain to the farmer that the coop is too crowded. Good luck with that.I know it’s sacrilege, but I think Amazon is a pain in the butt. What other store sells the exact same item at six different prices, depending on which shelf you pull the item from? And what store has one of aisle of goods that you can take home today and another aisle of goods you can take home in two days or maybe longer? And at our store in Crazytown, some items are randomly surcharged, while others aren’t. Imho, Amazon offers anything but a consistent buyer experience.Don’t get me wrong. There’s plenty you can learn from GAFA about creating an exceptional digital experience. The thing is, there’s more to your members’ lives than their smartphone or PC. Unless and until artificial intelligence becomes exponentially more capable, live humans will continue to play an important role in the overall member experience.The GAFAnians are not likely to steal your member service ideas any time soon. They’re too smart for that. However, you can still steal their digital ideas. Combine CU-level member service with GAFA-level digital and you’ll create a total member experience that runs circles around all of your competitors. 5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John San Filippo John is the co-founder of OmniChannel Communications, Inc., a company that specializes in B2B marketing to community financial institutions.

Ban on opioids won’t solve the problem

first_imgIt’s easy to be momentarily swayed by these soothing pronouncements when, in actuality, these are warning flags of imminent government overreach.Supporters of the Second Amendment recognize this flawed logic because — let’s be clear — the objective of the anti-gun lobby is to ban private ownership of firearms.Put forth as “common sense” (a phrase frequently employed by the condescending intelligentsia), these arguments would never be a reasoned solution to opioid abuse because it is readily apparent that the rights of many legitimate patients would be sacrificed to benefit the few.In both cases and under the justification of saving lives, it matters not what legitimate users want or need. The benefits of legitimate use must be ignored and the offending implement banned — whether it’s a drug or firearm.Tim ConnollySchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationSchenectady’s Lucas Rodriguez forging his own path in dance, theater, musicFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Schenectady man dies following Cutler Street dirt bike crash Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion The current opioid crisis has drawn significant media attention due to the sheer number of deaths from improper or illegal use.People simply want government to “do something.’ The ensuing political circus stifles rational debate and usually results in damaging overreaction.To wit, one solution is to ban the production, distribution, possession or use of any and all opioids. It’s “common sense” that overdose deaths would drop to nearly zero if opioids were banned.last_img read more
