“EDML1”: a chronology for the EPICA deep ice core from Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica, over the last 150 000 years

first_imgA chronology called EDML1 has been developed for the EPICA ice core from Dronning Maud Land (EDML). EDML1 is closely interlinked with EDC3, the new chronology for the EPICA ice core from Dome-C (EDC) through a stratigraphic match between EDML and EDC that consists of 322 volcanic match points over the last 128 ka. The EDC3 chronology comprises a glaciological model at EDC, which is constrained and later selectively tuned using primary dating information from EDC as well as from EDML, the latter being transferred using the tight stratigraphic link between the two cores. Finally, EDML1 was built by exporting EDC3 to EDML. For ages younger than 41 ka BP the new synchronized time scale EDML1/EDC3 is based on dated volcanic events and on a match to the Greenlandic ice core chronology GICC05 via Be-10 and methane. The internal consistency between EDML1 and EDC3 is estimated to be typically similar to 6 years and always less than 450 years over the last 128 ka (always less than 130 years over the last 60 ka), which reflects an unprecedented synchrony of time scales. EDML1 ends at 150 ka BP (2417 m depth) because the match between EDML and EDC becomes ambiguous further down. This hints at a complex ice flow history for the deepest 350 m of the EDML ice core.last_img read more

Saint Mary’s resumes ‘Justice Fridays’ lectures

first_imgThis past Friday, the Justice Education Program at Saint Mary’s College began its year-long “Justice Fridays” lecture series with an afternoon discussion about misconceptions and stereotypes women face.Discussion leader and senior Jessica Richmond said the goal of the meeting was to discuss labels placed on women.“I found myself facing labels and misconceptions once I hit high school … and the demeaning hold they take on women is a step in the wrong direction for our society,” she said. “I’m just one story. I want to hear other’s stories and brain storm ways to take a stand to these horrific terms and phrases used against women.”After watching a brief video about the stereotypes women hold in society, program attendees shared labels, such as “tomboy,” “ditzy” and “promiscuous,” which they have experienced personally. Labels such as these are concrete examples of the barriers fellow students are up against, Richmond said.“We can still be strong women with a man beside us, but when people come up with a strong voice, they are often criticized,” she said, “I don’t view myself as ornamental. I have my mind and so much more to offer.”Media is the source of many misconceptions, Richmond said. In order to change what media is portraying, we must first think about the labels we give ourselves, she said.“Media only portrays what we want to see, and if we say that what they are showing is not okay then eventually it will change,” she said, “We have to start small, with our inner circles.“I think as a Saint Mary’s women we are empowered and we empower each other, which is phenomenal … now it is time to turn this out into the communities we reside in to make a change.”First-year student Kendall Smith said she enjoyed the discussion and the stories shared by her classmates.“I was really impressed with how many different opinions came up,” she said. “It was really comforting to know that other girls have the same ideas.”The “Justice Fridays” program series is designed by Saint Mary’s Justice Education students and will continue all year, philosophy professor Adrienne Lyles-Chockley said. It allows students to combat issues they feel passionate about while enacting the mission of the Justice Education program in making the world a more just and peaceful place, she said.“‘Justice Fridays’ are designed to stimulate a campus-wide dialogue on ways to identify and combat injustice, and on methods of advancing social justice,” she said. “By facilitating dialogues that encourage students to think in comprehensive and systemic ways, ‘Justice Fridays’ and the Justice Education program enable students to understand and analyze the experiences of the disenfranchised, to constructively respond to unjust situations and to develop concrete and sustainable methods of advancing justice.”Speakers from the school and surrounding community will facilitate future discussions on topics including gender, racial, environmental, legal and economic justice, Chockley said. The meetings occur from 12-12:50 p.m. in the student center and are open to the public.

Gattuso’s Napoli draws 2-2 against AC Milan

first_imgGattuso had both played for and coached Milan but had never faced the Rossoneri since leaving by mutual consent at the end of last season.There was a touching moment before the match when Gattuso embraced Milan technical director Paolo Maldini, who he played with at Milan for 10 years.“There are so many emotions, because it’s the first time I faced the team that made me become a man and made me win so much,” Gattuso said.“But I’m angry tonight with my players, because when you create seven to eight chances you need to score. It’s not just a problem with the forwards, we easily get to within 18-20 meters of the goal, but we still make so many mistakes and we need to improve.”Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma pulled off two superb saves before his side went ahead against the run of play in the 20th with Hernández volleying in Ante Rebić’s cross.
