Growth and mass wasting of volcanic centers in the northern South Sandwich arc, South Atlantic, revealed by new multibeam mapping

first_imgNew multibeam (swath) bathymetric sonar data acquired using an EM120 system on the RRS James Clark Ross, supplemented by sub-bottom profiling, reveals the underwater morphology of a not, vert, similar 12,000 km2 area in the northern part of the mainly submarine South Sandwich volcanic arc. The new data extend between 55° 45′S and 57° 20′S and include Protector Shoal and the areas around Zavodovski, Visokoi and the Candlemas islands groups. Each of these areas is a discrete volcanic center. The entirely submarine Protector Shoal area, close to the northern limit of the arc, forms a 55 km long east–west-trending seamount chain that is at least partly of silicic composition. The seamounts are comparable to small subaerial stratovolcanoes in size, with volumes up to 83 km3, indicating that they are the product of multiple eruptions over extended periods. Zavodovski, Visokoi and the Candlemas island group are the summits of three 3–3.5 km high volcanic edifices. The bathymetric data show evidence for relationships between constructional volcanic features, including migrating volcanic centers, structurally controlled constructional ridges, satellite lava flows and domes, and mass wasting of the edifices. Mass wasting takes place mainly by strong erosion at sea level, and dispersal of this material along chutes, probably as turbidity currents and other mass flows that deposit in extensive sediment wave fields. Large scale mass wasting structures include movement of unconsolidated debris in slides, slumps and debris avalanches. Volcanism is migrating westward relative to the underlying plate and major volcanoes are asymmetrical, being steep with abundant recent volcanism on their western flanks, and gently sloping with extinct, eroded volcanic sequences to their east. This is consistent with the calculated rate of subduction erosion of the fore-arc.last_img read more

Upholding complexity

first_imgAbout a year ago, Jacob Ming-Trent vowed never to play a slave again.“We need more complex storytelling,” said the actor during an interview on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, recalling the reasons behind the decision. “We need positive images that aren’t all tracking back to me picking cotton.”But then came an offer for a part in “Father Comes Home From the Wars (Parts 1, 2, & 3),” a new play by the Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks that follows the life of a Texas slave — Hero — who joins the Confederate Army with his master in return for the promise of freedom.It’s a complex drama, alternately fierce and funny. One read through the script and Ming-Trent was hooked. He signed on for two roles — as a member of a group of slaves, and as the talking “Odyssey Dog,” a conflicted companion to the protagonist of Parks’ three-hour epic.It was the playwright’s “different perspective” that convinced Ming-Trent to join up.“She was saying: ‘We have to reframe this. We can’t allow people who have told the story incorrectly or have left out important details [to] win the day. Sometimes, we have to go back in and say … ‘This is a little more complex.’”“Father,” which opened Friday, is part of the American Repertory Theater’s Civil War Project marking the 150th anniversary of the nation’s bloodiest conflict. The play is a collaboration with the Public Theater of New York, where it debuted in the fall to strong reviews; it was recently named a finalist for the Edward M. Kennedy Prize for Drama Inspired by American History.In the first hour, “A Measure of a Man,” Hero struggles with the decision to follow his master into battle. Part two, “A Battle in the Wilderness,” finds Hero and his master separated from their regiment with a captive Union soldier. “The Union of My Confederate Parts” has Hero return to those he left behind to face the choices he made.Parks — a onetime MacArthur “Genius” and the first African-American woman to win the Pulitzer Prize in Drama, for 2002’s “Topdog/Underdog” — said that in contrast to some of her past work, “Father” developed at a slow burn. Indeed, even now, after six years of work, she’s not done tinkering. Recently she inserted a stage direction for Hero to “hold up his hands reminiscent of ‘Hands up, don’t shoot,’” in reference to the protests that followed the police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.Still, the playwright bristled at the notion that “Father” is about race.“We should not be reduced to a four-letter word,” said Parks, taking a break from a recent rehearsal.Instead, she said, the play explores a range of emotions and relationships, and asks difficult, sometimes impossible questions about love, honesty, truth, and freedom.“It touches on things that we are going through, both we of 2015 who are of African descent, and those of us who are not.”Much of the play, said Ming-Trent, “is about freedom and what is freedom, really. And how do you become free? And once you’ve made the decision to be free or not to be free, what that does.”The play’s director, Jo Bonney, a white woman from Australia, engaged with the material without a second thought over her superficial distance from it.“In the end as a director you’re telling a story and the greatest gift that you can be given is a script that is a powerful piece of storytelling. For me, whether I am male or female or what my color is or my background, it’s still a great piece of storytelling and my job is to tell that story.”So far, so good, as least according to the judgment of a most trusted adviser — Eric Bogosian, the actor-director who also happens to be her husband.“I always bring him into first previews,” said Bonney, who praised Bogosian as a “primal audience member,” keenly able to gauge if her work is hitting its marks.“He was so excited to see these kinds of performances on stage,” said Bonney, “and storytelling that was this deep and this funny.”“Father Comes Home From the Wars (Parts 1, 2 & 3)” runs at the A.R.T. through March 1.last_img read more

Student loan bill takes first steps

first_imgStudent loan bill takes first steps Student loan bill takes first steps March 15, 2005 Regular Newscenter_img A bill that would allow the state to repay student loans for some of its long-term attorneys has cleared its first hurdle.SB 190, which would allow the state to repay up to $44,000 on student loans for assistant public defenders, assistant state attorneys, assistant attorneys general, and assistant statewide prosecutors cleared the Senate Governmental Oversight and Productivity Committee on February 23. It was approved by a 5-0 vote after three minor amendments were added.It has already cleared the Senate Judiciary in January, and next goes to the Justice Appropriations Committee.The bill allows the state to repay up to $3,000 a year for student loans for attorneys in the four job categories who have been on the job for at least three years. After six years, the payment goes up to $5,000 a year, with a maximum repayment of $44,000.According to information provided to the committee, the average first year assistant state attorney makes $41,554.84; the first year assistant public defender earns $42.410.18; and the assistant attorney general $39,311 (figures were not available for assistant statewide prosecutors). After three years, those salaries are typically $51,108.36, $51,282.48, and $47,313, respectively.For those with law school loan debt, those who graduated from public law schools have an average debt of $54,025 and those from private schools typically owe $77,183.The three amendments provide that the loans must not be in default or have accrued late fees; the applying attorney must annually submit an affidavit of certification; and if an eligible attorney has more than one loan, the payments will first be applied to the loan with the highest interest rate.Bill supporters have argued the loan repayment program is justified because public attorneys typically make less than those entering private practice. State attorneys and public defenders have said the measure could help them retain experienced staff, who often leave for private practice because of the onus of repaying student loans.A similar measure, HB 169, has been filed and referred to the Judiciary Committee, the Justice Appropriations Committee, and the Justice Council. As this News went to press, it had not been heard. HB 169 provides for the loan repayments for assistant state attorneys, assistant public defenders, and qualified trial court staff attorneys.The Bar’s Young Lawyers Division has taken a legislative position supporting loan repayments for experienced government attorneys, at the local, state, and federal level, and including legal aid attorneys.last_img read more

You’re blocked! FCC issues declaratory ruling to resolve call-blocking uncertainty

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Hello compliance world! My name is Mahlet, and I recently joined NAFCU’s regulatory affairs team. I come bearing robocall news.On June 6, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will consider a Declaratory Ruling and Third Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (TFNPR) that would allow voice service providers (providers), such as Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint, as well as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) providers, to automatically block suspected robocalls unless consumers opt out. NAFCU will attend the FCC’s June 6 Open Commission meeting where this item will be considered and plans on submitting a comment letter if the proposal is finalized. Currently, it is unclear if this proposal would be harmful to credit unions but it could lead to providers inadvertently blocking some legitimate communications, including those from credit unions. NAFCU is interested in hearing from you whether providers are currently or have in the past mistakenly blocked your credit union’s communications.Note: The Declaratory Ruling becomes effective immediately, with no opportunity for comment, if it passes the FCC vote on June 6. However, the TFNPR is only a draft proposed rulemaking. If the FCC votes to approve the TFNPR, it will publish with a 30-day comment period. continue reading »last_img read more
