ICBC reminds drivers to use caution in parking lots during the holiday

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – ICBC is reminding drivers to use caution when driving through parking lots during the holiday season.ICBC says some drivers mistakenly believe that driving in parking lots is ‘safer’ due to lower travel speeds, but drivers need to continue practicing their safe driving habits, even while travelling in parking lots.Parking lots present drivers with unique challenges such as increased congestion and heavy pedestrian activity. The holiday season could add a layer of distraction with people more apt to be preoccupied with their shopping list or finding a parking spot. While most parking lot crashes happen at low speeds and only result in vehicle damage, dealing with the aftermath of a collision is the quickest way to put a damper on the holiday spirit.According to ICBC, about 150,000 crashes happened in parking lots last year resulting in 5,400 injuries.ICBC receives hundreds of thousands of vehicle damage claims every year, with costs exceeding $1.5 billion.Drivers are encouraged to apply a bit of holiday cheer, be courteous and have a bit more patience during this time of year.Here are some safety tips:The rules of the road still apply, even on private property: Drivers should know that the law still applies, even in mall parking lots. Avoid cutting diagonally through a lot – travel only in the appropriate lanes. Don’t use your phone while driving, instead, program your navigation or holiday tunes before you start your car.Have your car facing out in your parking spot: This position is safest for drivers because it helps you avoid the risk of reversing into a lane with potential blind spots when leaving.Park further away, if you can: Instead of circling endlessly to get a spot that’s closest to the mall entrance, pick a place that’s further away. You’ll avoid a high-traffic area where you’re more likely to crash with another vehicle or hit a pedestrian.Slow down and be on alert: Drivers should drive slowly in parking lots to have enough time to react to an unexpected vehicle backing out of their parking spot or an unanticipated pedestrian, especially young children, which may be harder to see.Pay attention to the arrows and stop signs: Many parking lots are quite narrow, restricting specific lanes to a single direction. Pay attention to the signs and markings on the road to avoid getting into a crash.Don’t block traffic: Deciding to follow a shopper, then waiting for them to load their car, buckle up and leave, jams up traffic behind you and likely takes you much longer than if you had just found a spot further away. Sitting idle in a lane can leave you vulnerable to a collision, and you could be blocking other drivers who are trying to move.Let it go: No sense in having a showdown with another driver for a parking spot. Move along, and maybe that good karma will net you something nice this season.For more information and driving tips, you can visit ICBC.comlast_img read more

Angola Annan calls for ceasefire restart of peace talks in postSavimbi era

“All concerned should do their utmost to use the new and changed circumstances to advance the cause of peace and reconciliation in Angola,” particularly the members of the National Union for Total Independence of Angola (UNITA), said a statement issued late Monday evening by the Secretary-General’s spokesman.”The Secretary-General and the UN system will continue their efforts in support of a peaceful resolution and a political settlement of the conflict that has brought so much suffering to the people of Angola,” said the statement, which was issued after Mr. Annan had been formally notified of the death of the President of UNITA.Meanwhile, the Secretary-General’s Special Adviser on Africa, Ibrahim Gambari, was expected to brief the Security Council today on recent developments. According to a UN spokesman, Mr. Gambari was also planning to travel to Washington D.C. for a possible meeting with Angolan President Jose Eduardo dos Santos. read more

Niger UNICEF rushes to distribute Frenchdonated livesaving supplies

As the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) moves quickly to expand its emergency response to the food shortage crisis in Niger, the French Government has donated to the agency some 1.7 tons of essential drugs and other life-saving supplies to help save tens of thousands of children and their families facing starvation.According to UNICEF, French Minister of Foreign Affairs, Philippe Douste-Blazy, arrived in Niamey, Niger over the weekend accompanying an air-lift, which included antibiotics, anti-malarials and de-worming tablets, as well as special oral re-hydration salts for the treatment of diarrhoea in severely malnourished children.The French government also airlifted another 35.4 tons of therapeutic milk, therapeutic food and oral re-hydration salts to Niamey. All of these life-saving supplies were donated to UNICEF Niger, along with 2.6 tons of locally-purchased therapeutic food. These essential supplies will be used immediately to help save the lives of vulnerable children affected by the food crisis in Niger.UNICEF estimates that 160,000 children in Niger are suffering from moderate under-nutrition and another 32,000 children are suffering from severe under-nutrition.As the crisis has deepened in recent weeks, UNICEF has delivered more than 41 tons of therapeutic milk and 1.5 tons of therapeutic food – Plumpy’nut – to the Government and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The agencies’ therapeutic food purchases are now supporting 10 fixed therapeutic feeding centres and 21 outreach therapeutic centres. read more

Bahrain terror bill is not in line with international human rights law

An independent United Nations human rights expert today urged Bahrain’s Government to amend a new counter-terrorism bill, expressing concern that the law could harm human rights in the country and would be “particularly troubling” as the Kingdom is a member of the newly constituted UN Human Rights Council.The bill, titled “Protecting Society from Terrorists Acts,” is awaiting ratification by the Head of State before becoming law, but the Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism, Martin Scheinin, called for the legislative and executive branches to “reconsider.”“While fully conscious of the fact that States’ obligation to protect and promote human rights requires them to take effective measures to combat terrorism, I encourage the executive and legislative branches of Government to make amendments to this bill to bring it in line with international human rights law.“Disregarding concerns based on international human rights standards would be particularly troubling in the case of a country that is a member of the newly constituted UN Human Rights Council.”The Special Rapporteur wrote to the Government in March and again last month, when this bill was before Parliament, identifying some issues of concern regarding the proposed legislation and he also listed these four broad areas in today’s statement.He said he was concerned that:the definition of terrorism is overly broad since there is no requirement of specific aim to commit a terrorist act and some acts are deemed to be “terrorist” without the intention of causing death or serious bodily injury – thus this definition goes against several human rights instruments;restrictions on freedom of association and assembly would allow the criminalization of peaceful demonstrations by civil society;excessive limitations are being placed on freedom of speech due to the use of broad and vague terms regarding the offence of incitement to terrorism since there is not a clear threshold for criminalization established;rights to due process would be denied because of the excessive powers of the Public Prosecutor regarding detention without judicial review.Mr. Scheinin and other Special Rapporteurs are independent, unpaid experts with a mandate from the Human Rights Council. read more

Football Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany announces Big Ten TV deals addresses

This represents half of the media package for the Big Ten, with ESPN and CBS essentially combining to own the second half until the conference reopens bidding on that other half of the deal. ESPN, CBS, NBC and Turner are all expected to compete for that package.“We’re in a great place,” Delany said. “To have (FOX) as a partner for the next six years is gratifying and exciting.”Delany also announced the conference will now allow conference members to schedule FCS opponents, going back on a rule implemented last season.He said it can be very difficult to get three FBS opponents on a schedule, and so the conference will allow schools to schedule a game against an FCS opponent in years when a team in the conference has fewer than four conference home games.He did add though the conference will allow teams to play FCS opponents, there are several factors for encouraging programs to assemble tougher schedules, which includes impressing the College Football Playoff committee.In addition to those past two topics, Delany was also asked about a rule change implemented by Indiana that does not allow any athletes with former sexual assault charges to compete for the university, and whether he would enforce that rule for all teams in the conference. He said while the conference has had discussions about implementing that rule conference-wide, the Big Ten will allow each school to determine that policy on its own and will not force it on any of the schools.“We recognize that some conferences have adopted policies, adjusted policies,” Delany said. “Institutions will determine whether someone’s prior conduct should prevent someone from playing in the Big Ten conference.”Lastly, Delany was asked about Chris Spielman’s lawsuit against Ohio State. Delany said he does not know much about the case despite having read a few articles about it, and from a Big Ten perspective, he did not have a comment.“We’re defending what I’ve tried to say from the beginning is people have the right to bring a case and the rights to defend themselves,” Delany said. Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delaney at 2017 Big Ten Media Days at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago on July 24, 2017. Credit: Jacob Myers | Managing EditorCHICAGO —  Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany addressed a number of topics during his opening speech at Big Ten Media Days on Monday, beginning with the confirmation of a six-year deal with FOX to air 25 football games and 50 basketball games.The deal was first reported by John Ourand and Michael Smith of Sports Business Daily on April 19, 2016, and said that it will run for six years. The deal will allow those games to be aired on both the broadcast channel and FS1. It will begin in the fall of 2017 and will cost FOX $250 million per year. read more

And I don’t just mean their loss Sunday against the Atlanta Hawks, in which they became only the third team in NBA history to blow a 26-point fourth-quarter lead. They’re 12-13 since the All-Star break. They have one of the NBA’s worst defenses, having allowed 107.9 points per 100 possessions — in the same territory as the Orlando Magic and the New York Knicks. They haven’t won a road game against a Western Conference playoff team all season. But handicappers think LeBron James and company have a pretty good chance of winning their second-straight NBA title anyway.Their view depends on their belief in the existence of Playoff LeBron, a superhero that transcends his already-formidable regular season form to carry his team to ever-greater heights. The good news for Cavs’ fans is that Playoff LeBron exists. He just might not be mighty enough to drag this team to a title.On the basis of their regular-season record and point differential, this season’s Cavs have been in the same general vicinity as teams such as the Boston Celtics, Toronto Raptors and Utah Jazz. Those teams are variously 30-to-1 to 100-to-1 longshots to win the title, according to Vegas bookmakers. But the Cavs are nonetheless the second-favorite team to win the championship, with a 20 to 25 percent chance according to bookmakers.Computer systems disagree. All of them have the Warriors as odds-on favorites to win the title, with the San Antonio Spurs as the next-best bet, and the Cavs as part of an undistinguished mass of teams beneath them. ESPN’s BPI puts Cleveland’s chances at just 4 percent. Basketball-Reference’s playoff odds also have them at 4 percent. And FiveThirtyEight’s Elo-based ratings1In this article, I’m mostly ignoring the difference between Elo ratings and “CARM-Elo” ratings, which are Elo ratings adjusted for our pre-season CARMELO projections. Our forecasts are based on Carm-Elo ratings, but the Cavs’ Elo rating is 1566 and their Carm-Elo rating is 1562, so this makes little difference at this stage of the season., which heavily weight recent play, have them even lower at just 2 percent.Usually, Elo-type ratings mimic betting markets fairly well. We give the Warriors a 65 percent chance of winning the title, for instance, and the San Antonio Spurs an 11 percent chance — right in line with where markets have them. So what accounts for the huge difference on Cleveland?One explanation is that this is all just sort of irrational: the Cavs are a marquee team and bettors just can’t stomach the idea that they’re just the Raptors with better uniforms. But I’m not sure I totally buy that; NBA betting markets are usually fairly sharp.Instead, bettors expect the Cavs to find a higher gear in the postseason. This isn’t an idea they just came up with; it was already priced into their assessment of the Cavs before the year began. At the start of the NBA season, FiveThirtyEight’s projections forecast the Cavs to win 57 regular-season games. (They have 51 now, so they’ll finish with no more than 53 wins.) That forecast was almost the same as what Vegas gave them, which put their over-under at 56.5 wins. But we also gave the Cavs only an 11 percent chance of winning the title whereas Vegas put them at 5-to-2 against, or a 29 percent chance. In other words, handicappers and the computer models agree on “regular-season Cavs.” It’s just that Vegas thinks that “playoff Cavs” are different — and much better — whereas our Elo ratings make no such distinction.But is there good reason to think that Cleveland can turn it up a notch?It’s not hard to recall examples of defending champions that lollygagged their way through the regular season, only to show up as the best version of themselves in the playoffs. In 2000-01, Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers finished with a 56-26 record — better than the Cavs this year, but not by that much — before winning 15 of 16 playoff games and repeating as NBA champion. And Hakeem Olajuwon and the 1994-95 Houston Rockets finished at 47-35 before winning the title despite being the No. 6 seed. In his last season in Miami, James and the 2013-14 Miami Heat had an uninspired regular season, going 54-28. But they made the NBA finals before losing to San Antonio.I’ve done a bit of cherry-picking there, however. Overall, it’s not clear if defending champs overperform by much in the playoffs. In the table below, I’ve looked at every defending NBA champion since the ABA-NBA merger in 1976-77. If the “higher gear” theory is correct, then they should systematically beat Elo’s expectations in the postseason, in which case their Elo ratings will rise over the course of the playoffs. On average, however, these teams’ Elo ratings increased only from 1644 to 1658 during the playoffs.2This average excludes the 1998-99 Chicago Bulls, the only NBA champion since the merger to miss the playoffs. So there’s a little something there, but in Elo terms, that’s pretty minor — not much more than a rounding error.3An Elo rating of 1644 is equivalent to 55.5 regular season wins in an 82-game season, while an Elo rating of 1658 is equivalent to 56.7 wins. 2010Cavaliers61-21+6.5Lost 2nd Round17011646-55 YEARTEAMRECORDPOINT DIFF.PLAYOFFSSTARTENDDIFF. 2008Cavaliers45-37-0.3Lost 2nd Round15061562+56 2015Cavaliers53-29+4.4Lost Finals16311692+61 2014Heat54-28+4.2Lost Finals15811604+23 2009Celtics62-20+7.4Lost 2nd Round16931653-40 16351669+34 1978Trail Blazers58-24+5.9Lost 1st Round15581551-7 YEARTEAMRECORDPOINT DIFF.PLAYOFFSSTARTENDDIFF. James’ teams have made the playoffs 11 times prior to this season. And they’ve played really well, both in absolute terms and relative to their regular-season performance. James and the Cavs did have a disastrous postseason in 2010 — when, as the No. 1 overall seed, they lost to the Celtics in the second round — but that’s pretty much the only exception. On average, they’ve gained 34 Elo points from the start of the playoffs to the end. And over James’s past six postseasons, they’ve outperformed their regular-season ending Elo rating by an average of 55 points.So let’s say that Elo has the Cavs’ underrated by somewhere in the neighborhood of 50 points. Call that a “LeBron clutch factor” or whatever else you like. I asked my colleague Jay Boice to add 50 Elo points to the Cavs’ Elo rating and rerun our playoff simulations. Their championship odds rose … but only to 6 percent.Instead, you have to add about 150 points of Elo rating to get the Cavs’ odds in the same vicinity as Vegas has them.4With a 150 Elo-point boost, the Cavaliers’ NBA title probability would be 21 percent. That’s a lot. Elo sees the Cavs’ current level of performance as equivalent to a 48-34 regular-season record. Add 150 Elo points to that total, and they’d project to a 62-20 regular season record. That’s a 14-win gain — about what you’d get from adding someone like Kawhi Leonard or Anthony Davis to the roster.Have no doubt: I’d love to plunk some money down on the Cavs at the odds our forecast and the other computer models give them. Playoff basketball is a pretty different specimen from regular-season basketball, and our model isn’t doing anything to account for that. This is something for us to examine for future iterations of the model, even if the Cavs get bounced in the first round.But I also wonder if the bookies aren’t going too far in the other direction. There are plenty of defending champions — and James-led teams — that underwhelmed in the regular season before going on to win a title or at least reach the finals. But few of them underperformed as much as the Cavs have. They also tended to benefit from down periods in the league, as the 1994-95 Rockets and 2000-01 Lakers did. This year, the Cavs will have to get past the Warriors, who might be even better than last year’s 73-9 version5The Warriors’ point differential is better last year’s — and the fourth-best in NBA history — and they have Kevin Durant., or, failing that, probably the Spurs.Nor will the Cavs’ enter the postseason with much rest. Instead, as the East’s No. 1 overall seed has been up in the air between the Cavs and the Celtics, James has averaged 43 minutes per over the team’s last five games. Kyrie Irving has gotten only two days off since the All-Star break. Kevin Love has played heavy minutes despite missing time in February and March due to knee surgery.James has beaten expectations so many times in the playoffs that transcendent things are almost expected from him. If he leads the Cavaliers to another title this year it really might be his greatest accomplishment yet. read more

Ohio State womens soccer falls to Oakland in 1st round of NCAA

What might have been a hot streak for Ohio State’s women’s soccer team finally went cold in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. After capturing the Big Ten Tournament championship on Nov. 4, the No. 4-seeded Buckeyes (16-4-2) played 90 minutes of regulation and 20 minutes of overtime before losing to Oakland University on penalty kicks, 3-1, Saturday evening at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. The loss snapped a nine-game winning streak for OSU, a feat that tied the school record set back in 2004. Over the course of that span, the Buckeyes outscored opponents 25-5. While OSU had little trouble getting shots on the goal during Saturday’s contest, outnumbering Oakland 28-5, putting the ball in the back of the net proved a different story. “Soccer’s a cruel game and to outshoot a team 28-5 it’s a pretty tough one to swallow,” said OSU coach Lori Walker. “We have to credit Oakland for finding a way to win.” In the game’s shootout, Oakland managed to score on its first two kicks as redshirt senior goalkeeper Shannon Coley managed to thwart OSU’s first three attempts. After the Golden Grizzlies missed their next two shots, the Buckeyes made their fourth kick, keeping their hopes alive. Oakland, though, had other plans as it made its fifth and final shot to clinch the victory. For some members of the OSU squad that started this season’s campaign 0-2, it was their final time suiting up in the Scarlet and Gray. “I’m proud of every single girl on the roster and it’s a hell of a way to end a season. It’s unfortunate, the circumstance, but I can’t say that’s there’s any girl that I look and should have their head down,” said senior defender Lauren Granberg. Despite OSU’s 7-3 shot advantage in the first half, junior midfielder Julianne Boyle and the Golden Grizzlies drew first blood in the 41st minute and took the 1-0 lead. In the second half, the Buckeyes sent a barrage of 15 shots at Coley, who made four saves, but could not keep out one from OSU’s leading scorer. Senior forward Tiffany Cameron scored her 21st goal of the season in the 60th minute thanks to an assist from Granberg and sophomore midfielder Ellyn Gruber, knotting the score up at 1-1. Cameron led all members involved in the contest in shots on the goal with eight, three more than Oakland’s five tries. Cameron’s goal was the first score surrendered by Oakland since an Oct. 20 loss at Fort Wayne. With the loss the Buckeyes finish their 2012 season with a 16-4-2 mark and the program’s third Big Ten Tournament Championship. “To end our season on a tie and loss in penalty kicks is a pretty tough ending to a pretty fantastic season,” Walker said. Oakland will take on Texas A&M in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. read more

Prototype iPhone 4 appears on eBay

first_imgThe iPhone 4 has been scrutinized, reviewed, dismantled, and even blended in the 12 months it has been available to buy. But do you remember the protoype units that got leaked in early 2010? Or the infamous iPhone left in bar that gave Gizmodo a pretty special exclusive reveal?In April 2010, Apple fans around the world wanted to know everything there was to know about the iPhone 4, and a lost iPhone was just the ticket to learn more about the smartphone before Steve Jobs officially revealed it.AdChoices广告Now, one of those prototype units has appeared on eBay, and it’s already fetching bids that make buying an unlocked iPhone 4 from the Apple Store look like pocket change. 19 bids have seen the price sky rocket to $1,755.99, but then the auction price gets reset most likely due to some rogue and fake bidding trying to get the sale canceled., There’s still 7 days left before the auction ends though, so who knows how much it will actually end up selling for.The model number on this device is simply XXXXX, the FCC ID is BCGAXXXXX. The seller’s description states this is a GSM model and confirms it is a tester unit by way of a check run on the IMEI number. Therefore it won’t register on the AT&T network as is, and iTunes brings up an error when it’s plugged in.The seller has stated in responses to questions on the auction that he is more than a little surprised the device is seeing so much interest. He admits to being a licensed cellphone repair guy and got the phone from someone who “didn’t know what he had.” The seller bought it for parts when the original owner couldn’t get it to work on a network. Then, after realizing what he had in his possession he decided to sell it on instead.Minor wear on the frame and small marks on the screen don’t seem to be putting people off bidding. In 7 days someone is going to be the lucky owner of a very expensive iPhone 4 prototype that you can’t use on a GSM network.via eBaylast_img read more

LG support page offers a peek at Nexus 4 production numbers

first_imgGoogle’s Nexus program has always been enthusiast focused, and never sold particularly well. The Nexus 4’s low price has been matched only by its lack of availability, leading many to believe that the sales volume would have to be astronomical. A little bit of group research combined with a leaky LG support page reveals that the lack of availability could have just been the result of a slow production start.Several Nexus 4 owners over in the XDA Developers forums decided to see if they could track down individual batches of phones that were having issues. If you recall, there were a lot of problems with the Nexus 7 when it was first released, and there are many users who have had to seek out a new Nexus 4 from Google as the result of defects. If you could track the production batches, maybe a pattern would be revealed that showed defects coming from a specific facility or timestamp for flawed models. As a result of this collaborative effort, and a peek at an open LG webservice, this group of users were able to locate production dates and facilities for a lot of Nexus 4 units.The group was also able to see how many Nexus 4 models were produced at a handful of facilities. The information shows that Google had only 70,000 Nexus 4 models manufactured by LG in the first month the phones were available, and ramped up quickly to 210,000 by December. The information made available suggests that there have been less than 475,000 Nexus 4’s produced to date. This includes orders that were made through T-Mobile, though the carrier made one bulk purchase and has yet to burn through their stock. Since this was discovered, several Nexus 4 owners have spoken up revealing serial numbers that don’t fit into the model that was produced in the forum thread. Based on the available information, it’s pretty obvious that these numbers aren’t all there is to see here.The Nexus 4 is currently sold out across the board in the US. T-Mobile stores don’t have them, the Google Play Store hasn’t had them in stock for weeks, and unless you’re alright with paying double in Denmark or on Amazon you’re out of luck right now. If T-Mobile really did only purchase that one batch, they have more than likely already ordered significantly more. It’s not hard to see that no part of the Nexus 4 launch was prepared for the phone to be quite so popular, and now LG and Google have to play catch up to meet demand.When you’re trying something new, even if you’re Google, it’s probably not a good plan to assume it’s going to be a huge success. Think about the HP Touchpad firesale for a moment, and how HP was forced to drop the price of their tablet dramatically so they could clear the shelves and move on. Google’s Nexus 4 is a new approach to mobile, asking users to purchase a phone sight unseen at a price that is slightly more than you would pay for a subsidized phone from carriers. It was a gamble from the beginning, and Google knew that. There’s not a lot of profit for anyone in the manufacturing of this phone, so it didn’t make any sense for LG to manufacture more than absolutely necessary.It’s unlikely that anyone will know exactly how many Nexus 4 models were produced or sold until LG or Google release those numbers.

Deadline Extended for Comments on EPA Analysis of Neonicotinoid Seed Treatment Efficacy

first_imgEarlier last week, EPA announced that it will extend the submission period for comments on its analysis of the efficacy of neonicotinoid seed treatments on soybean yield by 30 days. The original comment period was scheduled to close on Dec. 22, 2014. The extension notice will be published soon, but not by Monday, so EPA will re-open the comment period.ASA continues to urge those farmers with direct, tangible success stories regarding the use of neonicotinoid seed treatments to submit those examples to EPA. You view the original report and the original Federal Register notice, as well as submit your comments here.While crafting your comments, we suggest you review and potentially reference the news report pasted below, focusing on a similar ban and the subsequent negative effects in Europe. We believe that this case study only strengthens our position that EPA should be supporting how soybean producers are using neonic seed treatments – only when and where needed and effective. This is a judicious use of crop protection products that should be rewarded, not penalized.The ASA staff will keep you informed as the EPA pursues this issue.last_img read more

WPA Postpones Publishing Conference

first_imgOrganizers relaunched the event as a one-day conference in 2012 after a three-year hiatus, but attendance was sparse, according to a report from the conference. Silbering says about 100 industry professionals came last year and that fewer were expected in 2013. Prior WPA conferences, held over two days, had attracted a “significantly higher” amount of attendees and sponsors, she adds. The Maggie Banquet, the WPA’s annual awards program typically following the day-long conference, will be held as scheduled.Plans for rescheduling the conference are undetermined, but Silbering hopes to hold it later this year. Decisions are pending approval of the WPA board which meets next in May.”We hope to come back this year,” she says, “but there’s nothing positive yet.”The association had changed its conference format this year by adding more education sessions in accordance with industry research and survey data, but potential registrants were unresponsive.”The on-site conference market and the new generation that an association like ours is trying to reach are not connecting,” she says. “The way that they obtain education and the time they have and the resources that are available to them are so widely different than they were five years ago.”To stay updated on the latest FOLIO: news, become a Facebook fan and follow us on Twitter! The Western Publishing Association tried a new approach, but got the same result.The group announced that it has postponed its annual conference originally scheduled for April 26 in Los Angeles. Jane Silbering, executive director of the WPA, cites lagging registration as the primary reason for the decision. “We felt that we were not getting significant enough registration to warrant moving forward,” she says. “The signs led us to believe we would not reach the goals we had set.”last_img read more

Study offers clues about how conodonts used earliest vertebrate teeth

first_img( —Researchers from the University’s of Bristol and Birmingham in the U.K. have made progress in identifying the ways that a conodont used its teeth—the earliest ever found in a vertebrate. In their paper published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, the team describes how they used 3D modeling developed for use in testing I-Beams for use in construction to reveal the inner details of the teeth. Conodonts were a very early type of vertebrate—an eel-like creature that lived approximately 200 million years ago. Researchers only know of their existence because of teeth they left behind. But until now, it wasn’t known how the teeth might have been situated on the organisms (they had no jaw) or for what purpose they might have been put to use.In this new effort, the researchers were able to create virtual images of one species of conodont—Panderodus acostatus using a special type of tomography on teeth that have been found. Doing so revealed several different types of teeth which apparently served different roles for the early sea creature. In the 3D recreations, the different sets of teeth were color-coded to set them apart from one another. The teeth, all situated on the head of the creature were spaced apart as occurs with modern animals e.g. incisors, molars, etc. One set of teeth, for example, had a circular cross section which meant they could have been bent or twisted, indicating that they were likely used to hold prey in place. Another set of teeth were more narrow and sharper, obvious hints that the organism had a cutting, piercing or slicing ability. Because there is no other evidence available it’s not clear how the teeth might have worked in conjunction with other body parts however. Also, the researchers still don’t know exactly how the teeth were kept anchored to the body as it’s assumed the rest of its tissue was soft. Modern animals have teeth anchored to bone, such as the jaw or facial plate. In order to make use of its teeth, P. acostatus would have needed a strong base to hold its teeth in place or an ability to reproduce them rapidly if they were lost. Citation: Study offers clues about how conodonts used earliest vertebrate teeth (2013, August 15) retrieved 18 August 2019 from More information: Cutting the first ‘teeth’: a new approach to functional analysis of conodont elements, Proceedings of the Royal Society B, Published 14 August 2013 DOI: 10.1098/rspb.2013.1524AbstractThe morphological disparity of conodont elements rivals the dentition of all other vertebrates, yet relatively little is known about their functional diversity. Nevertheless, conodonts are an invaluable resource for testing the generality of functional principles derived from vertebrate teeth, and for exploring convergence in a range of food-processing structures. In a few derived conodont taxa, occlusal patterns have been used to derive functional models. However, conodont elements commonly and primitively exhibit comparatively simple coniform morphologies, functional analysis of which has not progressed much beyond speculation based on analogy. We have generated high-resolution tomographic data for each morphotype of the coniform conodont Panderodus acostatus. Using virtual cross sections, it has been possible to characterize changes in physical properties associated with individual element morphology. Subtle changes in cross-sectional profile have profound implications for the functional performance of individual elements and the apparatus as a whole. This study has implications beyond the ecology of a single conodont taxon. It provides a basis for reinterpreting coniform conodont taxonomy (which is based heavily on cross-sectional profiles), in terms of functional performance and ecology, shedding new light on the conodont fossil record. This technique can also be applied to more derived conodont morphologies, as well as analogous dentitions in other vertebrates and invertebrates.

aircraft involved in the accident was delivered to Lufthansa in 1991 and was put into use by the subsidiary Germanwings beginning in 2004 The A320 had its last routine safety check on March 23 in Dsseldorf Aviation experts said there were several possible scenarios that could have led to Tuesday’s plane crash though Bruce “Buck” Rodger president of Aero Consulting Experts and a commercial pilot described the Airbus A320 as “an extremely safe airplane” that is known for being “pilot-friendly” The A320 family of aircraft have a fatal accident rate of 014 per million departures which is lower than many other widely used commercial aircraft according to a study of airplane accidents by Boeing The rapid descent of the plane which Rodger said fell at nearly 5000 ft per minute could mean the plane lost its cabin pressure and had to get to a lower altitude quickly to keep passengers safe “It has to descend rapidly to protect everybody” Rodger said of that scenario which could have occurred if the plane’s hull was breached Another possibility is that the plane malfunctioned and the pilot was unable to control its altitude Rodger said The fact that the crew didn’t send out a distress signal could indicate that the pilots were having difficulty gaining full control of the aircraft or determining their location says aviation-safety expert Matt Robinson "When there is a problem air crews are trained to aviate navigate communicate in that order” he says “If they were fighting this aircraft or were busy then communicating the distress would be last on the list” With investigators now having obtained the aircraft’s black box piecing together what happened should be achievable unlike the Malaysia Airlines flight that crashed in the Indian Ocean a year ago “It’s not
