Oceanographic observations at the Amundsen shelf break

first_imgIntroductionThe continental shelf environment of the Amundsen and Bellingshausen seas differs markedly from that of the other circumpolar seas, where water temperatures are closeto the surface freezing point throughout. In the Amundsen/Bellingshausen sector near-freezing temperatures are encountered only in the upper few hundred metres ofthe water column. Below this surface layer a broad thermocline trends towards upper Circumpolar Deep Water (uCDW), which is found in a form that is almostunmodified from its off-shelf manifestation (Giulivi and Jacobs, 1996). This means that the ice shelves of the Amundsen and Bellingshausen seas experience oceantemperatures some three degrees warmer than those experienced by the other Antarctic ice shelves, and the rates of basal melting are correspondingly high (Jacobset al., 1996).last_img read more

Hot 8 Brass Band Premieres New Single “Bottom Of The Bucket” From Exciting New Album

first_imgThe Hot 8 Brass Band sure has reason to celebrate! After reaching their 20th anniversary in 2016, the New Orleans brass ensemble continues to push the envelope. The band is set to release a new album, On The Spot, on March 31st, and will support it with a cross-country tour in grandiose fashion.On The Spot is all about the band’s live sound, as it captures the group’s infectious energy like never before. Even the record’s name refers to a truly New Orleans moment, when a band takes a pause from their parade route to perform for those assembled around them. It’s a magical moment of synchronous energy, completely On The Spot, and that magic is bottled up for your own personal enjoyment on the new LP. You can pre-order the new release here.To get a sample of the band’s triumphant efforts, we’re honored to premiere the new track “Bottom Of The Bucket.” The band tells us a little more about the new single.L. Brown, the trombone player, was inspired by trying to get away from our trials and tribulations. It’s like that story about crabs in a bucket, one gets to the top and the others will bring him back down. We were doing everything we could to make it out. Whenever we tried to get up, there was no one to help pull us out. We did it all on our own.We also invited percussion legend Alfred “Uganda” Roberts, to join our forces on the recording. He has played with everyone from Professor Longhair, Dr. John and Allen Toussaint, to The Meters. We are very honored to have Uganda perform here with us.Check out “Bottom Of The Bucket,” streaming below!Check out the Hot 8 Brass Band’s tour schedule below, and head to their website for more information.

Legislature Passes Anti-Human Trafficking Bills

first_imgSubmitted by the Washington State LegislatureSeveral important anti-human trafficking bills have passed the Legislature and are on their way to Gov. Jay Inslee for his signature.“Reducing human trafficking, both labor and sex trafficking of minors, is a generational challenge,” Sen. Jeanne Kohl-Welles, D-Seattle, said. “I have been working on trafficking policy in the Legislature since 1994 when former Rep. Velma Veloria began our work here. It’s always been a bipartisan effort with colleagues from both parties and in both chambers working together to find solutions to this scourge on our children and communities. But just this morning I read that the sex industry has grown significantly in the Seattle-Tacoma area – and with so many people still suffering, our work is not over. ”Four bills and one Senate Joint Memorial (SJM 8003) were passed during the 2014 legislative session, and cover a wide range of issues regarding human trafficking.“The joining of these two bills has resulted in better and more comprehensive legislation,” Rep. Kevin Parker, R-Spokane. “This stronger bill is a result of two sides of the aisle to make a meaningful difference for the common good.”HB 1791, which was sponsored by Parker, adds sex trafficking to the existing definition of sex crimes, and was amended with language from SB 6017 (Kohl-Welles) to allow local law enforcement to recoup costs of investigating crimes related to prostitution and sexual exploitation of minors.“I understand it is a common practice for victims to be forced into cheap labor, prostitution, and sexual exploitation by means of coercion,” Sen. Karen Fraser, D-Olympia, said. “I sponsored SB 6339 that will make coercion a felony. I hope it will serve as both a deterrent and penalty for those guilty of these life-destroying crimes.”HB 1292 is a bill that will allow survivors of the commercial sex trade to petition a judge to vacate the penalty of prostitution from their record.“Having this record is a huge hurdle to survivors when they are trying to start anew,” said HB 1292 prime sponsor Rep. Tina Orwall, D-Des Moines. “This bill will help them to find jobs or go to school and allow survivors to move on from the pain of the past.”SB 6126 will align Washington with most other states and require courts to appoint an attorney to represent the nearly 10,000 children placed in foster care in Washington.“Ensuring children are placed in safe and permanent foster homes is of utmost importance to keeping them from running away,” said Chair of the House Public Safety Committee, Rep. Roger Goodman, D-Kirkland. “Often these runaway children end up on the streets, where it is easy for pimps to coerce or force them into being abused or trafficked.”An important request to the U.S. Congress also passed this session (SJM 8003 – Kohl-Welles), asking the Communications Decency Act be amended to better meet the challenges posed by new technologies.“The internet in particular plays an increasingly central role in trafficking,” said Chair of the Senate Law and Justice Committee, Sen. Mike Padden, R-Spokane Valley. “Especially with regards to online advertising that basically sells minors for sex, our laws have not caught up with the abuse taking place through new technology.”“The passage of SJM 8003 this year will, I hope, provide not just Washington, but the whole nation, a means to address sex-trafficking we now are seeing on the internet,” Kohl-Welles concluded.
