Significance of transient luminous events to neutral chemistry: experimental measurements

first_imgFor many years it has been suggested that transient luminous events (TLE) occurring over thunderstorms may produce significant modifications to neutral atmospheric chemistry. Some have speculated that large ionisation increases from red sprites, one type of TLE, could result in enhancements of odd nitrogen. In this study we make use of nighttime NO2 observations by the GOMOS instrument to test whether TLE are producing significant NOx enhancements in the middle atmosphere on a regional scale. Comparing regional variations of NO2 with 2-3 order of magnitude variations in lightning activity, we show that there is no significant impact of red sprites, giant jets or blue jets upon NOx levels in the stratosphere and mesosphere (20-70 km), within the detection levels of the instrument. While individual TLE may cause a local variation in NOx, these do not appear to be significant on regional scales (or beyond).last_img read more

Government moves to ban leasehold houses and cap ground rents at £10

first_imgThe Government is to stop houses being sold as leaseholds following the recent scandal over the 100,000 home owners who were found to be trapped in agreements that charged spiralling ground rents and enforced unfair conditions.Focussed largely on new-builds and a handful of big name developers including Taylor Wimpey, the horrendous problems faced by many owners of houses owned via a leasehold have prompted the government to take action.Research by the NAEA earlier this year suggested that 62% of leasehold house owners in the UK felt they had been mis-sold their properties.A consultation will now be launched to cap ground rents for new leases at £10 and to ban the sale of houses via leasehold.Housing secretary James Brokenshire says other changes are also being proposed for the leasehold sector. This includes measures to force freeholders to listen to tenant associations within the buildings they control“The move will help leaseholders act together to represent common interests and raise complaints with their landlords and agents for things such as service charges and management practices,” says the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.Leasehold housesGovernment figures reveal that there are 4.2 million leasehold properties in England of which 2.9 million or two thirds are flats.“Thousands of homeowners across the country are facing escalating ground rents, charges for making alterations to their properties and unable to sell their home,” says Mark Hayward, Chief Executive of NAEA Propertymark (left).“Therefore, it’s only right the government looks to crackdown on unfair leasehold practices to stop even more people feeling trapped in homes they cannot afford to continue living in.”“This announcement is only good news for those looking to buy a leasehold property in the future… and many will remain stuck in their lease with no straight forward way out and the industry needs to help them.”leaseholds housing market Mark Hayward James Brokenshire NAEA Taylor Wimpey October 15, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Test errors impede History applications

first_imgProspective History students were late in being told whether they had interviews this year, after the History Aptitude Test examiners mixed up marks and candidate numbers.The History Aptitude Test (HAT) forms part of the entrance procedure for History undergraduate courses at Oxford University. Andrea Hopkins, a representative for the History Faculty, explained to Cherwell that “errors [had] occurred where markers had incorrectly transcribed the candidate’s number,” upon entering each candidate number and corresponding mark onto a spreadsheet. Each examiner’s spreadsheet was then compiled to create a larger spreadsheet for all of the 1613 applicants.Oxford University Press Office played down the incident, stating, “It should be noted that the error only affected a small number of students.” However the History Faculty acknowledged that “even if only one number was wrong, it would put the rest of the numbers below it out of sequence”.The History Faculty revealed that HAT markers had not initially checked that every candidate number matched the right result. They accepted that errors had been made, telling Cherwell, “Of course what we should have done was devote several hours to checking every single candidate number and set of marks between the big spreadsheet, the markers’ spreadsheets, and the original script cover sheets, to detect these errors.”An official at the History Faculty explained that HAT examiners must “somehow slot in roughly forty hours of marking on top of their normal teaching and research,” and “had two days less to do it all this year.” She went on to add, however, that, “We will of course always do a total check in future.”A spokesperson from Oxford University Press Office said, “The History Faculty apologises for not identifying the errors more quickly, but felt that it was of utmost importance to ensure that all candidates’ scores were confirmed correctly.” He emphasised that the error did not cause too much inconvenience, stating that “the delay in notifying candidates for interview was no more than 24 hours.”A current history student reflected on invitations to interview at Oxford, saying, “It’s better to come late than not at all.” He added, “Let’s hope these screw-ups in the History Faculty are a thing of the past.”Another stated that the HAT mix-up was “Final proof that even the history tutors don’t give a shit about writing timed passages on American drainage ditches.”University College undergraduate Thomas Cole remarked, “This is the biggest HAT scandal since Princess Beatrice’s outfit to the Royal Wedding.”last_img read more

Bakers make the most of World Cup novelties

first_imgEnglish craft bakers have reported themed lines proved popular during the recent England World Cup tournament, although trade was down during England matches. Gary Reeve, MD of Reeve the Baker, based in Salisbury, said his nine shops offered World Cup novelties, including biscuits with an iced football strip, George Cross muffins and Belgian buns, with an iced George Cross instead of a cherry.Shops were quiet during the England matches, he said, and all promotional stock was withdrawn after England was knocked out by Portugal on July 1.Janes Pantry MD Neville Morse said the 10-shop Gloucestershire-based company closed early on the day of the second England match, after the “town went dead” during the first match.The company saw strong sales of World Cup merchandise, he said. Each week it sold 2,000 shortbreads, decorated England footballer’s shirts, 500 World Cup muffins and another 500 individual cake bars with St George’s flags on them. He commented: “The stock was still selling even after England was eliminated.”Newcastle-based Milligans Bakery saw good sales of football lines including iced Madeira buns, England strip gingerbread men, and World Cup cakes in its 30 shops, factory manager Paul Stephenson told British Baker. Forfars Bakers MD Tim Cutress said the 26-shop chain created novelty gingerbread footballers and mini England loaf cakes. But sales were hit by the hot weather, he said. Meanwhile, in Wales bakers also offered World Cup promotional items. David Jenkins MD Russell Jenkins said his 22 shops carried England-themed football biscuits and cupcakes, which sold well.last_img read more

News story: Jo Johnson: unprecedented new powers for Transport for the North are ‘crucial next step’

first_img Rail media enquiries Media enquiries 020 7944 3021 Transport for the North promotional videoDuring his visit to Liverpool Lime Street, Jo Johnson met with Network Rail staff delivering major upgrades to platforms and signalling at the great Victorian station, as part of the Great North Rail Project.With work to deliver an extra platform to be completed this summer, the upgrade will enable 3 new services per hour in and out of Lime Street.Patrick Cawley, director of route sponsorship at Network Rail, said: Rail Minister attends first Transport for the North Partnership Board in Liverpool TfN now hold powers to drive forward long-term strategic transport projects and have proposals considered by government Rail Minister will also visit Liverpool Lime Street to see progress on delivering the Great North Rail Project worth well over £1 billion Jo Johnson is encouraging the north to speak with one ‘strong, unified voice’ after meeting leaders from across the region in Liverpool today (5 April 2018) to discuss the unprecedented new powers of Transport for the North (TfN).The Rail Minister called upon northern leaders to drive forward vital transport projects such as Northern Powerhouse Rail after he attended the first meeting since TfN was legally established as England’s first sub-national transport body – backed by £260 million of government funding.Rail Minister Jo Johnson said: Out of hours media enquiries 020 7944 4292 Between 2015 and 2020 the government will have spent over £13 billion – more than any other in history – to transform northern transport, boosting economic growth and unlocking the incredible potential of the great towns and cities of the north. Establishing Transport for the North is a crucial next step in giving the north greater influence than ever over transport investment. It is imperative that the north now speaks with a strong, unified voice to identify where we can work together to transform journeys for people. The fantastic progress on upgrades to Liverpool Lime Street, which will enable more trains every hour and direct services to Scotland, demonstrates our unwavering commitment to delivering the transport links the north needs. With significant new powers to drive forward transformative projects like Northern Powerhouse Rail and smart ticketing, I am confident that TfN will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of northern transport. Our major transformation of Liverpool Lime Street is a key part of the Great North Rail Project, and it will be fantastic to show Rail Minister Jo Johnson what we’ve done so far and what work is currently being delivered while the station remains open. Once complete in October this year, passengers will see completely remodelled platforms and 2 brand new platforms, increasing the total number to 10. Longer, better managed platforms will accommodate longer trains, helping provide more space and seats for passengers. This is vital ahead of the significant increase in passengers expected in the coming years. Switchboard 0300 330 3000last_img read more
