Latitudinal and seasonal variations of quasiperiodic and periodic VLF emissions in the outer magnetosphere

first_imgWe have analyzed ELF-VLF receiver and search coil magnetometer data from five Antarctic stations from 1998 and 1999 to study quasiperiodic emissions (QPs) and periodic emissions (PEs), which occur as ULF-range modulations of ELF-VLF signals between 0.5 kHz and similar to4 kHz. QPs are modulated at frequencies of similar to20-50 mHz, and PEs are modulated at frequencies of similar to200-500 mHz. The stations used covered a range of magnetic latitudes from -62degrees (Halley) to -74degrees (South Pole Station); three automated geophysical observatories (AGOs) were located at intermediate latitudes. Consistent with earlier studies, most QPs were observed with magnetic pulsations of identical period in the Pc3 range ( type I QPs). Of those QPs not observed with simultaneous magnetic pulsations ( type II QPs), nearly all were accompanied by PEs. Type I QPs, PEs, and events during which both appeared together (QPPEs) were found to have different latitudinal, seasonal, and diurnal occurrence patterns: QPs of both types were more likely to occur between -65degrees and -70degrees magnetic latitude, while PEs occurred more often around -60degrees magnetic latitude. QPs were more common during the months of October though March, while PEs were more common during the months of May through September. QPs, whether with or without simultaneous PEs or magnetic pulsations, were predominantly a dayside phenomenon, with a broad maximum near local noon. The occurrence of QPs unaccompanied by PEs was restricted to the dayside, however, while a small number of QPPEs appeared even during nighttime hours. PEs, on the other hand, could be seen at all local times, but with latitudinally dependent diurnal patterns. Most higher-latitude QPs were type I events (observed with magnetic pulsations), while type II QP events (without simultaneous magnetic pulsations) occurred relatively more often at lower latitudes. A case study from 1 August 1999 using wideband data from South Pole and Halley provides evidence of a transition from echoing whistler activity to PE activity and then to QP activity and suggests a causal relationship.last_img read more

Lawn Care Apps

first_imgSummertime is synonymous with cooking outdoors, taking a dip in the pool and cranking up the lawn mower to begin the arduous task of caring for your home lawn. University of Georgia Cooperative Extension has made the task a little easier through a few mobile apps for Georgia homeowners and green industry professionals alike. “More and more people rely heavily on their smartphones and mobile devices, so experts in the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences created mobile apps based on agricultural topics,” said Patrick McCullough, a UGA Extension weed scientist and developer of several turfgrass-related mobile apps. McCullough developed a series of turf management apps that include photos of turfgrass varieties, pests, weeds and diseases. There are three versions: Turfgrass Management – Lite; Turfgrass Management – Subscription; and Turfgrass Management Lite (Spanish). The lite and Spanish versions are free. The subscription version costs $19.99 per year and includes the lite version, plus information on pest control applications and a pesticide database. For the more serious home gardener, the Turfgrass Management Calculator app covers all types of applications, pesticide rates, fertilizer requirements, topdressing sand requirements, and calibration of sprayers and spreaders. It also converts units from standard to metric, includes more than 16,000 pre-programmed calculations and costs just $5.99.If your lawn is overrun with weeds, download the free Turfgrass Weeds app and learn about turfgrasses and their most common weeds through a series of flash cards.

World Cup: Brazil’s Military Police improves security

first_img Street gangs The goal of the UPPs is to not only improve security for Brazilians, but to also help ensure that the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics unfold peacefully. Millions of visitors from around the world are expected to come to Rio de Janeiro for the two sporting events. Brazil has spent nearly $33 billion to build and improve infrastructure, such as public roads, in preparation for the two sports events. “Public security is of special interest to us,” Sports Minister Aldo Rebelo said during the 2013 Confederation Cup competition, which was held in Brazil from June 15 to June 30. The Brazilian government will provide sufficient security to protect local residents, as well as the many people who come to the country for the sports events, he said. Preventing attacks In the favelas, the UPPs are concentrating on confronting the Red Command, which is the oldest and largest gang in Brazil, and the FCC. Prison inmates formed the Red Command in the 1960s. The late 1970s, the gang was operating criminal enterprises outside of prison. The Red Command formed alliances with Colombian cartels in the 1980s to sell large quantities of cocaine in Brazil. A younger generation of prison inmates formed the FCC in the 1990s. The gang stole $16 million from a bank in Sao Paulo in 1999. Brazilian security forces closely followed the investigation into the April 2013 bombing of the Boston Marathon. Foreign Minister Antonio Patriota told reporters that “all necessary measures” will be taken to ensure the World Cup and the Olympics are safe. “We are confident there will be measures which will guarantee the security of the events,” Patriota said. Though Brazil has never been the target of a terrorist attack, security officials were preparing for the possibility of a terrorist attack even before the Boston Marathon bombing, authorities said. Continuing security center_img The Brazilian Military Police (PM) is working aggressively to improve security in and near Rio de Janeiro in preparation for the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games. In poor urban neighborhoods known as “favelas,” Police Pacifying Units (UPPs) are confronting and capturing members of the two largest organized crime groups in Brazil the Red Command and the First Capital Command (FCC).The two gangs engage in drug trafficking, extortion, illegal gambling, and kidnapping. The PM launched the security operation in August 2013. More than 1,000 police officers are helping improve security in the favelas. Major sporting events By Dialogo October 03, 2013 The effort is different from previous police operations. In previous operations, PM agents would sweep through neighborhoods and make large numbers of arrests, then leave. The UPPs are not merely conducting brief raids. They are staying in the favelas to provide stability and continuing security. “Currently, there are 30 UPPs that cover 50 to 60 Brazilian communities. Their mission is to control their territory and bring peace to the people,” said security analyst Ignacio Cano, who is also a professor in the social sciences department at the University of Rio de Janeiro. last_img read more


Presidential Palaces to implement ‘new normal’ protocols

first_imgThe Presidential Palaces, the official residences and offices of President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, will soon implement “new normal” protocols in day-to-day activities and official events in an effort to mitigate the risks of in-person activity during the COVID-19 outbreak.”The President has instructed us to carry out daily activities [in the palace] in accordance with the new normal measures,” Presidential Secretariat head Heru Budi Hartono said in a statement on Thursday.He explained that all four presidential palaces, which are in Jakarta, Bogor, Bali and Yogyakarta, would implement similar measures. Under the “new normal” protocols, the Baiturrahim mosque in the Jakarta Presidential Palace will resume mass prayers with strict health measures.”We will reduce the mosque’s maximum capacity to 20 percent of the original. Previously, the mosque could accommodate 750 people. Now it has become 150,” Heru said.Read also: MRT Jakarta resumes normal operational hours, with limited capacity during transition periodSeveral hand washing stations will be placed at the entrances to the mosque and at the area for wudu (ablutions). “By implementing the new normal measures, I think we will be able to worship comfortably,” Heru said.The presidential palace will also limit the number of attendees at formal functions.”For inauguration ceremonies, for example, we will limit the number of guests to 5 to 7 people,” Heru said, adding that the attendees would be required to maintain physical distance.The palace will also continue to conduct rapid tests on its guests. The guests, including ministers and their drivers, will be required to wear face masks.The annual flag-hoisting ceremonies, commonly carried out on the palaces’ grounds to commemorate Independence Day, will now be held online. The palace also aims to reduce the number of journalists reporting in person by providing livestreams of President Jokowi’s activities.Topics :last_img read more

Ireland waiting on key duo

first_img O’Driscoll and Sexton are struggling with respective calf and hamstring problems and are rated doubtful for Sunday’s Aviva Stadium showdown with the All Blacks. Forwards coach John Plumtree insists time is on the duo’s side as they seek to recover for Ireland’s final match of the year. “We were very average against Australia and we’re very disappointed with that performance. We scrummed poorly,” Plumtree said. “We conceded a soft try from their drive which the boys are fuming at. “We knew it was coming, but we didn’t execute the plan we had in place, which makes it doubly irritating. “There’s been an extra edge in the forwards this week and there has to be. “We’re playing against probably the best side in the world and the pack needs to front up big time. “As a pack New Zealand are the ultimate test. It doesn’t get any tougher than this and we were irritated with our performance last week.” Brian O’Driscoll and Jonathan Sexton missed training on Wednesday but Ireland remain hopeful they will be passed fit for the climax to the Guinness Series against New Zealand. “It’s hard to say if they’ll be available. The nice thing is that we’ve got a long turnaround this week,” Plumtree said. “It’s only Wednesday, so they’ve got a day off on Thursday and then come in on Friday. “We’ve got that extra day which is great and hopefully by the time they come in on Friday they’ll be feeling a lot better.” O’Driscoll’s absence would be a bitter pill to swallow for both player and country given it will be his last chance to play New Zealand before retiring at the end of the season. There was more promising news over the availability of full-back Rob Kearney, who was able to train on Wednesday as he continues his rehabilitation from a rib problem. “Rob trained all right. I’m not sure how he’s feeling afterwards, but he took part full in the session, which was good. I’m sure he’ll be all right,” Plumtree said. The British and Irish Lions trio played in Saturday’s 32-15 defeat by Australia, a bitterly disappointing result and performance that saw Ireland beaten 4-0 on the try count. Plumtree was angry with the display of his pack and warned them a substantial improvement is required if they are to compete with the All Blacks. Press Associationlast_img read more
