In June, streaming services will be adding a plethora of new titles to their respective lineups.Netflix is leaning into its selection of Marvel titles, including the second season of Luke Cage, the hilarious Thor: Ragnarok, and the latest season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Not only that, but the service is also adding Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi. (Yeah, we know what we said about space operas, but c’mon — it’s Star Wars.) The two-hour series finale to Lana and Lilly Wachowski’s Sense8 is coming in June, as is The Break with Michelle Wolf, and the second seasons of both Glow and Queer Eye.But for everything that a streaming service giveth, a streaming service also taketh away. Netflix will be losing Captain America: Civil War on June 25th, and Men in Black and 8 Mileare a couple of the other films that will be vanishing during the month.We’ve included the full list of titles for all three services below.COMING TO NETFLIXJune 1stAssassination GamesBlue JasmineBusted!, season finaleDisney’s 101 DalmatiansGeorge Balanchine’s The NutcrackerHe Named Me MalalaJoseph Campbell and the Power of MythJust FriendsMiracleNational TreasureNick and Norah’s Infinite PlaylistNovember 13: Attack on ParisOutside InRighteous KillRumor Has ItSingularityTaking LivesTerms and Conditions May ApplyThe BoyThe CovenantThe DepartedThe Prince & Me 4: The Elephant AdventureJune 2ndThe King’s SpeechJune 3rdThe Break with Michelle Wolf (streaming every Sunday)June 5thMarvel Studios’ Thor: RagnarokJune 7thHyori’s Bed & Breakfast: Season 2 (streaming every Thursday)The Night Shift, season 4June 8thAlex StrangeloveAli’s WeddingMarcella, season 2Sense8, series finaleThe HollowThe StaircaseTreehouse DetectivesJune 9thWynonna Earp, season 2June 10thPortlandia, season 8June 14thCutie and the BoxerMarlon, season 1June 15thLa Hora FinalLust StoriesMaktubQueer Eye, season 2Set It UpStep Up 2: The StreetsSunday’s IllnessThe Imaginarium of Doctor ParnassusThe Ranch, part 5True: Magical FriendsTrue: Wonderful WishesVoltron: Legendary Defender, season 6June 16thGrey’s Anatomy, season 14In BrugesJune 17thClub de Cuervos presenta: La balada de Hugo SánchezMarvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., season 5June 18thEncerradosJune 19thHannah Gadsby: NanetteJune 22ndBrain on FireCooking on HighDerren Brown: MiracleHeavy Rescue: 401, season 2Marvel’s Luke Cage, season 2Us and ThemJune 23rdDisney’s TarzanJune 24thTo Each, Her Own (Les Goûts et les couleurs)June 25thHotel Transylvania, season 1June 26thSecret CityStar Wars: The Last JediW.

More frequent and intense tropical storms mean less recovery time for…

first_img You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Please enter your comment! Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate The Anatomy of Fear Hans Paerl, the University of North Carolina at Chapel HillTropical cyclones – storms that bring strong, rotating winds and rain, and which can intensify into hurricanes or typhoons – affect coastal regions around the world. Our research team, centered at the University of North Carolina’s Institute of Marine Sciences, has analyzed a 120-year record of tropical cyclones affecting coastal North Carolina and found that six of the seven wettest storms over this time period occurred in the past two decades.That trend appeared to continue with Hurricane Dorian, which delivered up to 10 inches (25 centimeters) of rain within 24 hours as it grazed the North and South Carolina coasts in early September 2019. This additional rain is a combined result of a warmer ocean and slower-moving or stalled cyclones approaching the coast.More frequent and intense tropical storms have far-reaching ecological impacts on coastlines that last for months or years after storms pass. They affect estuaries, bays, and marshes that are crucial nurseries for major ocean fisheries.Researchers don’t yet know how multiple events like this affect the long-term stability, resiliency and recovery of these valuable ecosystems. I believe it is critical to understand what these impacts could mean for vitally important water quality and fisheries habitat, recreational value and livability for local residents and visitors.Water loaded with soils, sediments, decaying leaves, pollutants and other debris flows from the swollen New and White Oak rivers and Adams Creek in North Carolina into the Atlantic after Hurricane Florence in 2018.NASA Earth ObservatoryDirty runoffCoastal storms have caused widespread damage in recent years. Record rainfalls have been associated with recent cyclones striking the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean, eastern China, Korea, and Japan, and the southeastern coast of Africa. These storms cause large-scale property damage, human suffering and economic hardship. Their increasing frequency also has profound effects on estuaries and coastal waters that drain their upstream flood-affected watersheds.As rainfall from large tropical storms flows from elevated inland regions toward coastal plains, it carries immense quantities of nutrients, dissolved organic matter, sediments, and urban, industrial and agricultural pollutants. This puts a heavy burden on watersheds and downstream coastal ecosystems that receive these discharges. Many of these coastal areas are already influenced by human activities under normal hydrologic conditions.Impacts of tropical cyclones on dissolved inorganic nitrogen loads to North Carolina’s Neuse River estuary, relative to normal seasonal patterns.Paer et al., 2019., CC BYWhen excess nitrogen and phosphorus build up in rivers and bays, they can cause recurring algal blooms with cascading impacts, including oxygen depletion, fish and shellfish kills and food chain disruptions. There are harmful aesthetic and economic impacts as well, including the accumulation of smelly decomposing algae and loss of recreational and fishing habitats. These conditions inconvenience residents and may drive away tourists, harming the local economy.Lasting impactsMy colleagues and I have been measuring nutrients discharged to coastal systems for decades, gathering evidence from large storms like Hurricane Floyd, which flooded much of North Carolina’s coastal plain in 1999. We found that a single storm can discharge as much nitrogen to coastal waters as they would receive during an entire hurricane-free year.Nitrogen in runoff from Floyd led to an outbreak of algal blooms that lasted well over a year in Albemarle-Pamlico Sound, a large, semi-enclosed lagoon that lies between the Outer Banks and North Carolina’s mainland. Albemarle-Pamlico Sound, which covers some 3,000 square miles of open water and drains six rivers, is the second-largest U.S. estuary after the Chesapeake Bay. It supports up to 80% of nearshore and offshore recreational and commercial fisheries in the southeastern U.S. and brings in more than US$4 billion in annual tourism revenues and residential income.There are just four outlets from Albemarle-Pamlico Sound to the Atlantic through the Outer Banks, so it has only limited exchange with the ocean. As a result, stormwater that enters Albemarle-Pamlico Sound from rivers can remain there for about a year before it flows into the ocean. This slow flushing rate allows the system to assimilate and cycle nutrients and organic matter, which creates optimal conditions for multiple algae blooms.Brown sediments clogged coastal estuaries that flow into Albemarle-Pamlico Sound a week after Hurricane Floyd. Along with dirt swept away by floodwaters, the estuaries filled with human and animal waste, fertilizers and pesticides.Brian Montgomery, NASA GSFCFloodwaters from Floyd contained a soupy mix of organic matter from upstream soil erosion, urban stormwater runoff and washout from swamps, marshes and wetlands. Decaying organic matter eventually caused severe oxygen depletion in Albemarle-Pamlico Sound’s deeper areas, creating a dead zone that was uninhabitable for bottom-dwelling shellfish, crabs and invertebrates that support other fish species. These stressful conditions also promoted fish and shellfish diseases.Measuring recoveryMy research group is working to understand how ecologically and economically important water bodies like Albemarle-Pamlico Sound recover from these events. It can take many months or years for these systems to recover from water quality and habitat disruptions in response to flooding from tropical storms.Over the past four years, Albemarle-Pamlico Sound has experienced three major storms. Each one occurred when the sound’s habitats and water quality were still recovering from the previous event.As tropical storms occur more frequently, coastal ecosystems may still be recovering when the next storm strikes. This is likely to degrade water quality and habitat conditions for fish and wildlife.Hans Paerl, CC BY-NDA new U.N. report has confirmed that climate change is having widespread, dramatic effects on the world’s oceans. One impact is that tropical storms are becoming more intense, with increases in rainfall, coastal erosion and flooding.In my view, it is extremely important to keep close watch on estuarine and coastal waters that are being affected by the growing frequency and intensity of tropical cyclones and other types of storms, such as nor’easters. I see a need for increased investment in long-term water quality and habitat monitoring around critically important ecological and economic resources like Albemarle-Pamlico Sound.This will involve coupling “on the ground” monitoring strategies, such as water testing from boats and other platforms, with remote sensing using airplanes and satellites, and with advanced weather forecasting and hindcasting. Using all of these methods will enable scientists to assess the short- and long-term environmental and societal impacts of storms, and to measure recovery and resiliency along coastlines. This kind of information is critical for informing management decisions as more frequent and intense storms batter the world’s coasts.Hans Paerl, Professor of Marine and Environmental Sciences, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. This article is republished from The Conversation under a Creative Commons license.  Please enter your name here Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

Villa Kavel 01 / Studioninedots

This is the house that Studioninedots built for a young family – a house full of surprises and contrasts. A house with dynamic spatial and material qualities: from an unlimited space with panoramic views of nature to private rooms hidden behind a veil of shutters, from sleek custom furniture against a raw concrete structure to warm timber paired with cold steel. Light and views were key elements of this design. The house was completed in January 2014. Save this picture!Floor Plan 1Situated directly on the waterfront with unobstructed views of the opposite park, Kavel 01 (meaning Lot 01) is what you could call a dream site. But one that posed a tough challenge: how do we build a spacious, liveable home on a sharp diamond-shaped plot on this most beautiful part on the islandSave this picture!© Peter CuypersIt seemed impractical to combine a simple rectangular volume with an angular plot with sharp angles of 51 degrees – and also did little justice to its unique form – so we based the design of the house on the shape of a diamond. On the north side, the volume is pushed towards the tip of the island thereby extending the south-west elevation; this maximises sun into the house and views over the park emphasising the relationship between inside and outside. As the glazing on the facade moves inwards from the western corner, this accentuates the feeling of openness on the ground floor. At the same time, this creates a covered terrace, which is protected from the wind. Lastly, the layout of the garden was optimised to accommodate different private terraces and a separate car park.Save this picture!© Peter CuypersDue to height restrictions, the house is partly built underground. This ‘secret’ domain contains the guest room, bathroom, storage, study, and children’s games room and cinema. Along the south facade, the ground is carved out to permit sunlight into the basement; from below, this opens up views over the garden. This intervention transforms the appearance of the volume dramatically: from here the house seems to float above the ground. A set of stairs provides separate access to this part of the house from the outside.Save this picture!© Peter CuypersIn contrast with the openness of the living room on the ground floor, the first floor feels intentionally more closed and private. The three bedrooms are wrapped behind black veils made from 33 shutters of perforated steel. Thanks to the code-like composition of square perforations, lively shadow patterns are cast by the sun on the floors and walls while the shutters unfold like harmonicas with the push of a button – then voilà, the balconies magically appear. With the sliding glass facade doors open, it’s easy to imagine yourself in the middle of nature while lying in bed or in the bath.

Save this picture!© Peter CuypersAlthough Kavel 01 is very defined in shape the building itself offers a wealth of spatial qualities. With its sharp angles and high elevations, the building’s appearance changes as you walk around it, from slim and slender to wide and robust. Inside, the atmosphere varies between light and airy to dark and intimate as in a nightclub.
It was possible to create a largely open plan interior thanks to the load-bearing concrete facades and the structural central stair shaft. On the ground floor, all the cabinets, the fireplace, audio system, and television are concealed inside a series of freestanding custom-made furniture units, strategically positioned to create a set of flowing spaces. As minimal volumes finished in dark timber, they form a striking contrast with the raw concrete. Designing a private residence provides an excellent opportunity to experiment with new materials and forms. The sprayed-concrete facade and steel shutters were specially developed for this project as well as the illuminated black intercom column beside the entrance that resembles a miniature version of the house. Details have been meticulously resolved from the stainless steel door handle and 4mm-thick stainless steel kitchen bench to the sink elements and shower drain. This has not only given us immense design pleasure but has also resulted in a sleek and unified aesthetic that evokes a sense of calm and serenity.

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Generation Y (born between 1981 and 1991) – give an average of £113.22 per year to 4.6 different causesDifferent kinds of supportThe research found that the different age groups not surprisingly exhibited different approaches to supporting and engaging with charities.Mature donors are more loyal to the causes they support: almost 30% have donated to their causes for between 10 and 15 years, and 16% for more than 20 years.Two thirds of Mature donors use Facebook, and are nearly as likely as Generation Y donors to give via a charity’s website. They are most likely to receive information in the mail, while Generation Y are most likely to get information by visiting the website and from social media. Generation Y supporters might give the least, but they are most likely to volunteer for a cause (29%) and to attend and organise events (16%). They also engage online and sharing actions online with others more than the other age groups; 27% cent follow a cause on a social network to stay informed and 25% share a cause’s online content with others.Sixty per cent of Generation Y visit a charity’s website before making a donationThey also had the strongest desire (43%) to increase money and time commitments to charities.’No one size fits all approach’Martin Campbell, Blackbaud Europe’s director of strategy and innovation, said: “There is no ‘one size fits all approach’ to fundraising for not-for-profits, and the key to successful fundraising and engagement with supporters of all generations is to be multi-channel.”Every generation uses every channel, they just do so in different ways. Adopting an integrated and multi-channel approach will play a major role in bridging this generation gap, targeting the right people, at the right time via the most appropriate channel.”Digital channels are appropriate to all age groups. Deanna Bickford, senior consultant at Stratcom, commented: “Although Gen Y donors continue to lead the way for online engagement and the use of social media to promote causes, the generational differences with regard to other online activities were not as great as one might expect. Middle-aged donors appear to respond well to online advocacy, video and podcasts.” First contact with charitiesAlthough radio, TV and newspapers account for 15% of donors’ first contact with a charity, according to the research, peer-to-peer contact is the most common at 27%. In other words, donors are most likely to learn about a charity through a personal contact, whether that is in person, through email or via social media. Value of the different generationsNearly half (47%) of mature donors give to charity through monthly direct debit, double the number of Generation Y donors who do so. Of course, this means that currently Baby Boomers and Generation X supporters are potentially the most valuable to charities.Stephen Butler, director at Xtraordinary, commented:  “Not-for-profits should be targeting Gen X and Baby Boomers, as these donors represent the greatest opportunity for revenue growth in the next few years. Either age group could surpass Matures in total giving, by either finding 3 per cent more donors or by existing donors increasing their average gift by just £12 annually.”He added that, at the same time, because Generation Y are the donors of the future, “not-for-profits should be embarking on a lifetime’s journey with them, educating on the importance of fundraising and engaging them online and via social media.”The Next Generation of UK Giving report can be downloaded from Blackbaud’s website. Baby Boomers (born between 1946 and 1964) – give an average of £153.28 per year to 5.4 different causes Matures (born 1945 or earlier) – give an average of £211.30 per year to 5.3 different causes Levels of givingThe research involved surveying 1,498 UK donors across all ages, asking them about how they donate to and engage with charities and voluntary organisations.

Bedford Row kids get sporting chance

first_imgTwitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Print Advertisement WhatsApp Email FAI Announce New Broadcast Deals for Three Senior Leagues JOHN Delaney, chief executive of the Football Association of Ireland (FAI), was in Limerick this week to present tickets to parents and staff of the Bedford Row Family Project for the Republic of Ireland v Serbia match, which took place in Dublin last night.Delaney visited Bedford Row on Tuesday, where he commended the work of volunteers involved in community and sports groups in Limerick city.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up He said: “We do a lot of community work and that’s very important to us. If you’re building a house you build the foundations first and the chimney is at the top of the house.“Declan Considine [FAI development officer for Limerick] is working with Bedford Row who do tremendous work for the kids. One guy spoke to me about his child being on this project and he told me about the boy’s enthusiasm for going to the Aviva.“If you’re rowing a boat and you’re rowing on your own it takes a long time. If you row against each other you don’t get there, but if you work together on the same mission you can achieve a lot.”Mr Considine has been working closely with the Bedford Row Family Project in his role with the FAI and he spoke of the importance of sport in giving children a positive social engagement.“I’d like to say a huge thanks to John Delaney for making people’s dreams come true. This can help to put them on the right road.“As a young lad I was touch and go what way I’d turn out; my love of sport kept me level headed. Also, without the support of FAI Regional Manager Tom O’Shea I wouldn’t be here.”Project leader Larry de Cléir said that the enthusiasm and dedication of Mr Considine made it possible for the group to get tickets to the Ireland match. He added that members of the Bedford Row Family Project are striving to display positive aspects of the prison service.“We have been looking forward to getting tickets for a long time and that was made possible through our relationship with Declan Considine and through the generosity of the FAI and the regeneration project for enabling football in children’s groups. A person who is enthusiastic will make an impact on children and Declan is very enthusiastic.“Ours is a unique project in that we are not confined to one community.

The petition has been moved by one of the victim’s friends, apprehending that investigation in the rape case may be hindered due to the “clout” of the accused enjoyed back in the state. The Bench comprising Justices RF Nariman, Navin Sinha and Indira Banerjee has issued notices to the UP Government and SP, Lucknow. The Petitioner has submitted that the FIR lodged by the victim in the Vibhuti Khand Police Station has shockingly been circulated all over media, disclosing the victim’s identity and personal details to the public. This has made it impossible for her or her family to “step out of their house”. Further it is submitted that given the “clout” of the accused being an Advocate and being related to powerful politicians, they have not been able to file a writ petition before the High Court. In these circumstances, she has prayed for: A direction upon the Lucknow Police to immediately remove all news, information and other material over internet relating to the victim or her family;A direction to test all samples collected from the crime scene in a FSL facility situated outside the State of UP;Transfer of investigation to CBI;Transfer of trial outside the State of UP. Further, as per the Petitioner, the victim was drugged before being raped. She has therefore sought for an absolute ban on sale of intoxicating substances. Background Additional Chief Standing Counsel in the Lucknow bench of the High Court, Shailendra Singh Chauhan, has been accused of sexual harassment by a young practicing lawyer from Delhi. She has alleged that Chauhan raped her in his chamber, after administering her some intoxicants. Accordingly, an FIR was lodged at the Vibhuti Khand Police Station in Gomti Nagar area, under Sections 328 (Causing hurt by means of poison, etc., with intent to commit an offence), 354A (Sexual harassment) and 376 (Rape) of IPC. Subsequently, Chauahan had approached the High Court stating that the allegations leveled against him were false and therefore, the FIR registered against him ought to be quashed. Though the court refused to quash the proceedings instantly, it granted interim relief from arrest to Chauhan. This order nevertheless, has been stayed by the Supreme Court.
