Shift from carbon flow through the microbial loop to the viral shunt in coastal Antarctic waters during austral summer

first_imgThe relative flow of carbon through the viral shunt and the microbial loop is a pivotal factor controlling the contribution of secondary production to the food web and to rates of nutrient remineralization and respiration. The current study examines the significance of these processes in the coastal waters of the Antarctic during the productive austral summer months. Throughout the study a general trend towards lower bacterioplankton and heterotrophic nanoflagellate (HNF) abundances was observed, whereas virioplankton concentration increased. A corresponding decline of HNF grazing rates and shift towards viral production, indicative of viral infection, was measured. Carbon flow mediated by HNF grazing decreased by more than half from 5.7 µg C L−1 day−1 on average in December and January to 2.4 µg C L−1 day−1 in February. Conversely, carbon flow through the viral shunt increased substantially over the study from on average 0.9 µg C L−1 day−1 in December to 7.6 µg C L−1 day−1 in February. This study shows that functioning of the coastal Antarctic microbial community varied considerably over the productive summer months. In early summer, the system favors transfer of matter and energy to higher trophic levels via the microbial loop, however towards the end of summer carbon flow is redirected towards the viral shunt, causing a switch towards more recycling and therefore increased respiration and regeneration.last_img read more

Barwell’s Tweet shows consistency on fees ban

first_imgHome » News » Barwell’s Tweet shows consistency on fees ban previous nextRegulation & LawBarwell’s Tweet shows consistency on fees banMany senior Tories including May and Hammond have changed their minds since 2014Nigel Lewis29th November 20160584 Views This week Housing Minister Gavin Barwell was caught off-message on Twitter when a reply he gave to magazine Inside Housing about the rumoured fees ban was unearthed.Barwell said (see right) ‘Bad idea – landlords would pass costs ton to tenants via rent. We’re looking at other ways to cut upfront costs & raise standards’.It is no doubt this sort of mood music from the Tory government that persuaded NALS that a Fair Fees Forum was a good idea. But they, like Barwell, were caught by surprise when Hammond announced that he would bring forward a total ban on fees charged to tenants.At least Barwell is consistent, though. He is one of the few people Tory MPs who who haven’t undergone an astonishing conversion to banning tenant fees since 2014.Those with longer memories will recall that both the 2014 Labour amendment to the Consumer Rights Bill and a 2013 Private Members Bill both failed to gain support from the Tory benches.Chancellor Philip Hammond and Prime Minister Theresa May both voted against the Labour amendment, which was defeated by 291 to 228 votes.But while Barwell has stuck to his guns – his Tweet reflected his ‘no’ vote to the Labour amendment, Hammond has change his tune.By proposing a ban during the Autumn statement, Hammond said it would ‘improve competition in the private rental market and give renters clarity and control over what they pay’.One irony of the Labour amendment in 2014, which most agents opposed, is that agents and landlords were going to be allowed to charge for credit checks, something they will not be able to do if the current proposed ban become law.

Poland safely through; perfection for Germany

first_imgPARIS, France (AFP) — Robert Lewandowski scored a European-qualifying record 16th goal as Poland defeated Montenegro 4-2 yesterday to reach next year’s World Cup, while reigning champions Germany secured a 10th successive win.Bayern Munich striker Lewandowski struck again in what has been a remarkable qualifying campaign, as Poland recovered from throwing away a two-goal lead in Warsaw to secure a first trip to the World Cup finals since 2006.“I was angry. We were leading 2-0 at home and then let them equalise for 2-all. We had to score that third goal to calm things down,” said Lewandowski, who moved back ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo’s 15-goal tally.Krzysztof Maczynski and Kamil Grosicki struck early as Poland made a dream start, but Montenegro hit back through goals from Stefan Mugosa and Zarko Tomasevic to pull level with just seven minutes left.Lewandowski restored Poland’s advantage on 85 minutes before a late own goal from Filip Stojkovic sealed victory, although Denmark’s 1-1 draw at home to Romania ultimately rendered the outcome irrelevant.The Danes needed to win in Copenhagen while hoping that Montenegro could upset Poland to finish top of Group E, but Ciprian Deac’s late equaliser cancelled out a 60th-minute penalty from Christian Eriksen.Denmark are at least assured of a place in next month’s play-offs as one of the eight-best runners-up from the nine qualifying groups.Germany made it 10 wins from 10 in Group C, after routing Azerbaijan 5-1 in Kaiserslautern to join Spain as the only nations in history to finish a European World Cup qualifying campaign with a perfect record.Leon Goretzka’s opening goal was negated by Ramil Sheydaev on 34 minutes, but Sandro Wagner and Antonio Ruediger scored after half-time before Goretzka notched his second and Emre Can completed the victory.Germany scored a European-qualifying record 43 goals on the road to Russia, emulating Spain who achieved perfection in qualifying ahead of their triumph at the 2010 tournament in South Africa.last_img read more

Track, V’ball win quietly

first_imgDolgner was a major part of the volleyball team\’s success over the past decade under Pete Waite.[/media-credit]Amid the successes and failures of the football, men’s hockey and men’s basketball teams lie teams that outperformed their revenue-building counterparts.Three different non-revenue sports have won national championships since 2000, including the men’s cross country (2005), women’s hockey (2006, 2007, 2009) and the men’s indoor track teams (2007).Those numbers also don’t include the national championships earned by the men’s and women’s rowing squads, which are perhaps the most successful of any sports, winning 26 titles between the two programsBut unsurprisingly, most UW sports fans have little knowledge of the powerhouses Wisconsin has built over the past decade.For example, since Pete Waite took over the volleyball program in 1999, the team has been a contender in the Big Ten in nearly every season since.Most notably, the 2000-01 season was a record-breaking one for the volleyball team. In only his second season as head coach, Waite brought the Badgers to the national championship match, losing only four games all season.For the women’s hockey team, its accomplishments are obvious, yet worth noting. Mark Johnson — who is currently taking a leave of absence to coach the U.S. Olympic squad — built perhaps the most successful women’s hockey program in history winning three national championships in four years. Wisconsin will certainly welcome him back next year.Off the beaten path, longtime men’s cross country coach Jerry Schumacher continued his success this past decade, winning a national championship in 2005 to go along with a staggering nine consecutive Big Ten titles. Yes, that’s every single year over the past decade. In 2008, new head coach Mick Byrne took over, only to — you guessed it — win yet another Big Ten title.The women’s basketball team hasn’t been nearly as successful this decade as the aforementioned teams, but it has brought out the best of some wonderful athletes.One year after Alando Tucker broke the all-time Wisconsin basketball scoring mark, senior Jolene Anderson came right back and did the same. Her play was recognized as some of the best in the country, and she was chosen as a second round pick in the WNBA draft.But where there are successes, failures are only expected as well. The UW softball team is the epitome of that fact. Posting an abysmal 15-40 record the past two seasons, head coach Chandelle Schulte has so far proven she cannot manage a college softball team, let alone coach one. Her moves have been questioned constantly, and her players (as well as two Badger Herald columnists) seemingly can’t stand her. However, with a new decade comes new recruits, and that’s where Schulte looks to improve this season.If there is one thing to take from all of this, it is simply that while many complain about the shortcomings of the UW football team, there is an equally good team on the non-revenue side of the spectrum. Whether or not the Wisconsin community begins to recognize this is yet to be seen. Perhaps another decade will give us an idea of what’s to come.last_img read more

IBB Lady Captain Fetes Kids

first_imgBetween August 7 and 10, the 8th IBB Junior Open Golf Championship will hold at the ame venue.Close to 200 kid golfers across the nation will participate in this monumental event that will see all participants housed and fed.Thereafter, those who finished tops in this event will be recommended to the Royal and Ancient St Andrews, the world body governing golf for proper grounding.“A lot of people are wondering why I am passionate about Kiddies golf,” Lami stated. “Let’s face it, the kiddies are our future. As a mother, I must cater for their well being. The Olympics will hold in some weeks’ time and we don’t have anybody holding the nation’s flag in that event. “This will not happen in the 2020 Olympics. I can tell you with all boldness that the youths we are investing on at the moment will be the pride of Nigeria. At least five of those who will play in the Open shall hoist this country’s flag in the 2020 Olympics. Please, quote me on that,” the IBB Lady Captain concluded.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram The new Lady Captain of the IBB Golf Club, Lami Ahmed, is indeed making the fact known that the game of golf should be handed to kids who could eventually win medals for the nation in future Olympics.To prove her point, Lami, a Lioness who thrives on oil and gas, precisely at the Conoil, has put together two gigantic tourneys that could make several kids on coming holidays some great fun.Lami Ahmed stated that over 200 kids will feature in developmental clinic between July 21 and August 12.She affirmed that kids who will be part of the programme will learn the game from the scratch and play it properly before the expiration of the programme. The Lady Captain also claimed that brilliant professional golfers are already on ground to put the kiddies through.last_img read more
