The regurgitation of stomach contents in trawl caught whiting, evidence of a predator size effect

first_imgThe rate of regurgitation of food from the stomachs of trawl caught whiting Merlangius merlangus was negatively correlated with fish size. Increased musculature of the oesophageal sphincter in larger fish may enable them to resist the forced expulsion of their stomach contents to a greater extent.last_img

Anatomy of a Dansgaard-Oeschger warming transition: High-resolution analysis of the North Greenland Ice Core Project ice core

first_imgLarge and abrupt temperature oscillations during the last glacial period, known as Dansgaard‐Oeschger (DO) events, are clearly observed in the Greenland ice core record. Here we present a new high‐resolution chemical (2 mm) and stable isotope (20 mm) record from the North Greenland Ice Core Project (NGRIP) ice core at the onset of one of the most prominent DO events of the last glacial, DO‐8, observed ∼38,000 years ago. The unique, subannual‐resolution NGRIP record provides a true sequence of change during a DO warming with detailed annual layer counting of very high depth resolution geochemical measurements used to determine the exact duration of the transition. The continental ions, indicative of long‐range atmospheric loading and dustiness from East Asia, are the first to change, followed by the snow accumulation, the moisture source conditions, and finally the atmospheric temperature in Greenland. The sequence of events shows that atmospheric and oceanic source and circulation changes preceded the DO warming by several years.last_img read more

Nissan Chemical America wins first US patent for nanoActiv enhanced flowback technology

first_imgnanoActiv EFT is the first micellar dispersion additive that harnesses the power of nanoparticle technology to increase initial oil and gas production Image: Nissan Chemical America wins first US patent. Photo: Courtesy of Arek Socha/Pixabay Nissan Chemical America Corporation (NCA) had its first US Patent, “Hydrocarbon Formation Treatment Micellar Solutions, “issued on Tuesday August 13, 2019 as U.S. Patent No. 10,377,942.nanoActiv EFT is the first micellar dispersion additive that harnesses the power of nanoparticle technology to increase initial oil and gas production. nanoActiv EFT is a synergistic combination of Nissan’s proprietary silicon dioxide nanoparticles, an organic solvent, and a blend of surfactants. These technologies work together to efficiently overcome problems presented by increases in water saturation and decreases in hydrocarbon mobility.“For the nanotechnology to do its job, the particles must be uniform in size and remain separate from each other. In the presence of brine, that is a very difficult thing to do,” says NCA Technology Director John Southwell. “We solved this challenge by engineering highly surface-modified brine-resistant nanoActiv particles with the ability to remain a colloidal dispersion in challenging downhole conditions.”nanoActiv EFT reaches into small pore spaces—releasing more immobilized oil than ever before—delivering significantly more efficient and complete flowback of the treatment fluids over a shorter period of time.The benefits of nanoActiv EFT are amplified when used in combination with nanoActiv HRT to syngergistically increase initial oil and gas production while reaching deeper into the fracture network creating pathways for sustained recovery.“Nissan Chemical’s nanoActiv products are the only true nanoparticle solutions in the industry. This patent is a big step forward as the nanoActiv brand continues to grow,” adds NCA President William Smith. “Our innovative products for the Oil & Gas industry consistently give operators improved returns.”Source: Company Press Releaselast_img read more

We have a massive bank of stunning professional photographs and needed an online presence that showcased our talents. Starberry has built us a dynamic website that’s picture-led and eye catching. After working with some of the UK’s leading estate agents – especially on window displays – we know how important a shop front is. Our website is our shop front so now we have a fitting window display of our own – it makes the right first impression.”The new website features an extensive array of images that illustrate every aspect of MPL Interiors’ services. “Site visitors are greeted by a slide show of pictures of our work and the structure of the websites means a quick scroll down the page gives an instant flavour of our style, quality and finish. There’s also an extensive selection of photos under the Portfolio tab – where a vast image gallery and a number of fully-illustrated case studies provides ideas and inspiration,” adds Simons. “The refurbishment and design business is all about aesthetics so having a website driven by images was crucial.”As well as images, the new website provides a comprehensive overview of MPL Interiors’ services – with a detailed ‘What We Do’ section, which is broken down into areas of specialism. Other facets include a news channel and a ‘quick quote’ button. “The site is easy to use thanks to drop down menus and clear sections that direct users to the right information with the minimum amount of clicks.

In fact, we are looking to add to our sales team and are embarking on a staff recruitment drive to project manage the forecast upturn in business.”“We expect our refreshed online presence to deliver a steady pipeline of new projects, as we know the first point-of-contact we have with many clients is our website.

OnTheMarket CEO sets sights on “overtaking Zoopla”

first_imgOnTheMarket (OTM) is on course to replace Zoopla to become the number two property portal by the end of next year on their way to achieving their medium term objective of challenging the market leader, Rightmove – according to Ian Springett (right), the CEO of OnTheMarket.He claims the level of traffic and unique visitors to the portal hit a record high in July, recording 5.2 million visits in July, up from 4.4 million visits in June, with more than 2.4 million unique visitors, which represented a 17 per cent month-on-month increase. The figures are not independently audited.Ian Springett commented, “From a standing start just six months ago, the growth in our traffic, engagement, property stock and agent membership has been impressive.“It took Zoopla three years to reach five million visits per month, even having acquired PropertyFinder, Hot Property and ThinkProperty along the way.”But in spite of OTM’s growing success, their level of website traffic at this early stage of their existence remains low in comparison to Zoopla and in particular, Rightmove. Rightmove continues to dominate property search traffic, with more than 80 per cent share among the leading UK property websites, while visits have reached 110 million per month, up from 94 million this time last year.Rightmove has also increased property listings to 1.1 million, meaning there are 50 per cent more homes available to view on its website than any other.Some commentators have asserted that what OTM has achieved is to strengthen Rightmove’s standing in the market as it gains traffic, agents and property stock at the expense of Zoopla, but this is not the case, according to Mr Springett. He added, “The reality is that we are on a growth path towards overtaking Zoopla and then building to provide a genuine, low-cost, alternative to Rightmove.”Despite the fact that Rightmove continues to dominate the market, with record numbers of customers having joined Rightmove, which has converted high web traffic into increased revenue of 16 per cent, the CEO of Rightmove, Nick McKittrick, recently told the press that his firm would “take nothing for granted”.“This is a competitive marketplace,” he said. “It’s about focusing on growing our audience and building a great relationship with customers.” August 11, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

Wadham SU tight-lipped over drone purchase

first_imgThe Wadham motion intends to use £50 on the “purchase of donuts, snacks and drinks” and donate a further £50 to each of the two nominated RAG charities, which were decided in the OUSU elections. She added: “Fundamentally the money could be put to much better uses like buying condoms, tampons, or other welfare-related things.”Another student, who wished to remain anonymous, said: “I think it’s ridiculous that Wadham SU are considering spending such a large amount of money on what is little more than a rather flashy toy.”They said the drone “will be something only a small group of people will enjoy using”.Bertholdi-Saad, the motion’s proposer, did not respond to Cherwell’s request for comment. Amongst students who were willing to voice their views, opinions on the drone were mixed.On the SU’s Facebook page, one second-year student said: “The drone is clearly an essentially needed aspect of college life.”However, other students were more critical. Rachel Collett, a Wadham first-year, told Cherwell: “A poor quality camera filming football matches or promotional Wadham videos is a complete waste of money that could be used to actually benefit the SU and Wadham students.”center_img Members of the Wadham Student Union (SU) have remained tight-lipped about plans to buy the College a drone using money won from voter turnout figures in last week’s OUSU elections.Last Sunday, Wadham debated a motion at its SU meeting, proposed by the President, Lucas Bertholdi-Saad, to buy the college a drone because “they are cool and have popular support”.The motion was amended to instruct the Tech Rep to investigate how best to spend £150 of the £300 Wadham has won on a drone.SU committee members and Wadham students appeared unwilling to speak to Cherwell about the plans. The Tech Rep, Saul Mendelson, had allegedly “strongly advised against offering comment” to student reporters. He later informed Cherwell he was “just kidding”.According to the motion, the SU plans to use the drone “to make exciting access videos, to film Wadstock [the college’s annual music festival] from above, and to be rented out to other colleges when they need a drone”.Oxford University Students Union awarded £300 to Wadham after it came second for turnout for OUSU elections. Teddy Hall, who came first, won £600.Teddy Hall JCR President Amelia Gabaldoni informed Cherwell that the college was “most probably” intending to use the money on welfare teas.last_img read more
