In the rich volcanic landscape of the Aleutians, Okmok volcano on Umnak Island has drawn special attention this summer.A team of scientists are using a process like a geological CAT scan to map the the inside of Okmok Volcano. (Photo by Alaska Volcano observatory, USGS/Wikimedia Commons)Matt Haney, a research geophysicist with the Alaska Volcano Observatory, is part of a team trying to create an image of the inside of Okmok. The process is like a geological CAT scan, mapping the earth rather than the body.Last summer, the team set out an array of seismometers – sensors that pick up the same seismic waves that characterize earthquakes – on and around the volcano.The seismometers measure how fast these waves travel through the earth, which gives scientists an idea of what kind of material, like magma, rocks, or groundwater, might make up the inside of Okmok.Seismic waves travel faster through dense rock, and slower through liquids like magma and water.“At Okmok, from previous work, we know there’s a shallow magma chamber,” Haney said. “So from these new data, we should see – are there other chambers deeper in the crust? What does it look like really deep?”Haney hopes a clear image of the inside of Okmok will help us understand future eruptions.In 2008, Okmok erupted in an entirely new way, breaking a historical pattern and surprising scientists.The work done by Haney’s team might shed more light on that unusual eruption.“Maybe by having an image of the deeper structure, we can see what is the driver of this change in eruptive activity,” he said. “Should we expect the next eruption to follow this new pattern, or will it return to the pattern it had before?”Haney’s work at Okmok is only one of several studies conducted in the area this summer.There’s also a team studying Mount Cleveland, and another group measuring tectonic tremors, a newly discovered type of earthquake, on Unalaska.Haney says he hopes data can be shared across projects like these to create a more complete picture of the seismic environment in the Aleutians.
The Punjab National Bank unearthed a Rs 11,400-crore fraud at its Kalagodha branch in Mumbai.ReutersIn these troubled times, it’s axiomatic to say that ‘government’ is the Leviathan crouching around the neck of the governed. The larger the government becomes, the poorer the governed turn. Public sector banks were seen as the lifeline of a nation in the throes of reconstruction after Independence, but they’ve now become the channel through which public money flows out. Maybe it’s around time public sector banks are be privatised. At least, deny the corrupt a safe perch!Banks were nationalised in 1969, a political masterstroke that helped Indira Gandhi vanquish the Syndicate challenge and oust Morarji Desai as finance minister. However, beyond political goals, bank nationalisation had its stated economic goals — to stem the rising tide of bank failures, refocus bank lending on agriculture and offer credit support to a whole lot of priority sectors.Nationalising the banks was seen as the right means for national reconstruction — the process of giving the country back to the people. However, nearly 50 years later, the reality is that the nationalised banks have failed in this mission. And the graver realty is that they’ve sold out to those who loot the country. They’ve become the travesty of the original goals for which they were set up.The NPAs the public sector banks have racked up are a miserable reflection of the pernicious co-existence of the absence of accountability and rampant corruptionThe latest Economic Survey showed that as much as 82.6 percent of Indian banks’ loan book was accounted for by the large enterprises. Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) received only 17.4 percent of the total credit. MSME is the sector that contributes 45 percent of the total manufacturing output and as much as 40 percent of the country’s exports.It just turns out that public sector banks have not just failed the poor of the country, the backbone of the economy. They’ve failed the nation by setting their regulations — and scruples — very low that mindboggling corporate piggeries are allowed to happen. The Punjab National Bank scam is just the latest of the examples. One may argue that such daylight robberies do not happen often. But the fact is that such loot of public wealth happens all too often, and they only take a little longer to emerge in the form of non-performing assets (NPAs).The NPAs the public sector banks have racked up are a miserable reflection of the pernicious co-existence of the absence of accountability and rampant corruption. Loans do not merely become bad loans; bad loans are created in the first place. Whose loss is it anyway? The government will recapitalise the banks with money from the public exchequer and then again, extricate more from the public in the form of taxes.Priority sector lendingYet, ironically, farm and MSME loans much often figure in the discourses about bad loans and the deteriorating asset quality in the banks. But what’s the truth? Are the public sector banks burdened so heavily with those little loans the farmers and the small time cottage industries avail of? According to the Economic Survey, only 11.8 percent of the NPAs is from the priority sector. Bank nationalisation’s stated aim was to offer more credit to the priority sector, which includes agriculture, MSMEs, housing for the underprivileged and education loans.At 11.8 percent, the NPA from this sector amounts to a meagre Rs 75,000 crore, compared with the 8.5 lakh crore in NPAs the public sector banks have accumulated. So, for whose sake have they been labouring? And it’s not even the case that public sector banks alone bear the NPAs from the priority sector. The Survey shows that priority sector NPAs in private banks was 9.6 percent.Under the Priority Sector Lending (PSL) guidelines, at least 18 percent of the adjusted net bank credit (ANBC) should go to the agriculture sector. Another 8 percent should be earmarked for small and marginal farmers. However, large public sector banks barely keep pace with this norm, let alone surpass it. According to an RBI report, in 2017, priority sector lending was flat in public sector banks while this showed better levels of growth in the private sector.Less loans to agri sector Another report showed that the growth of lending to the agriculture sector in the country fell to 5.8 percent as of September 2017, compared with 15.9 percent in the corresponding period in the previous year. A report from Madhya Pradesh shows that the number of farmers getting the farm loan waiver is just around 11 percent of the total targeted beneficiariesRBI data further showed that loans to agriculture sector in Karnataka fell from 17 percent to 6 percent while in Telangana, the fall was from around 20 percent to 3 percent. The situation is not different in other states in the country.And often there is a lot of noise about the pain of writing off farm loans. But what’s the reality? A report from Madhya Pradesh showed that the number of farmers getting the farm loan waiver is just around 11 percent of the total targeted beneficiaries.And, you are talking about individuals whose loan amounts are in the range of Rs 1 lakh, not the Rs 11,400 scraped off the corrupt system by Nirav Modi.
The Delhi Police arrested more than 80 people, including Chandra Shekhar.IANSThe Bhim Army has threatened a mass movement against the Narendra Modi government if their top leaders, Chandra Shekhar and Vinay Ratan, were not released immediately.Chandra Shekhar and the other Bhim Army leaders were arrested on August 21 in Delhi while protesting against the demolition of the Sant Ravidas temple.The Bhim Army’s Bareilly unit in-charge, Ajay Pradhan, said that they would take to the streets across western Uttar Pradesh if their leaders were not released immediately and denied permission to reconstruct the temple.Agitated Bhim Army workers met the Additional District Magistrate (City), Mahendra Kumar Singh, and handed over a memorandum that was addressed to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.Pradhan claimed that the Modi government was shielding behind the Supreme Court order and trying to hurt the image of their gods and goddesses.The latest move of demolishing the temple shows the Centre’s apathy towards the Dalit community, he added. TwitterThe Delhi Development Authority had demolished the temple at Tughlaqabad on August 10 following a Supreme Court order. A large group of Dalit activists then went on a rampage on August 21 and at least 80 cars were damaged during the ensuing melee. A few locals were also injured.After the incident, the Delhi Police arrested more than 80 people, including Chandra Shekhar.The apex court had stated that any attempt to politicize its order will be viewed as “contempt of court”.However, the matter has taken a political turn with various opposition parties voicing support for the protesters.West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on August 22 tweeted: “We are shocked that the Guru Ravidas temple in Delhi was demolished and understand his supporters’ anguish, as the Guru had himself visited and stayed there. We have great respect for Sant Ravidas. The shrine symbolizes the Dalits’ struggle for their rights and must be rebuilt.”The Delhi government has also passed a resolution to rebuild the temple and asked the Centre to provide land for the same.

Poor and middle-class families pay a much higher share of their income in sales and property taxes than do the wealthy, according to a recent study of state tax systems by the Institute on Taxation & Economic Policy. The study found that the less states and localities rely on progressively structured income taxes, the greater the relative burden on low and middle-income households.In Maryland, households in the lowest 20 percent of earners (people earning less than $24,000 per year) pay 9.7 percent of their incomes in taxes. The middle 20 percent pay 10.3 percent, and the top 1 percent of households pay 6.7 percent of their total incomes in taxes.State and local tax structures that rely heavily on property taxes, or sales and excise taxes, tend to hit low and middle-income families particularly hard, the study concludes.“Property taxes, including both taxes on individuals and business taxes, are usually somewhat regressive,” reads the study. “On average, poor homeowners and renters pay more of their incomes in property taxes than do any other income group — and the wealthiest taxpayers pay the least.”Sales and excise taxes are also “very regressive,” since “[p]oor families pay almost eight times more of their incomes in these taxes than the best-off families, and middle-income families pay more than five times the rate of the wealthy.”The study can inform policy discussions in cities like Baltimore, with high rates of poverty (23.8 percent according to the last census) and heavy reliance on regressive taxes such as the city’s property tax.“There are moral and practical reasons to be concerned about [regressive taxes],” according to the study. “Unfair tax systems not only exacerbate widening income inequality in the short term, but they also will leave states struggling to raise enough revenue to meet their basic needs in the long term.”email@example.com

(PhysOrg.com) — While most people are familiar with the fact that many species of female spiders eat their male counterparts, new research findings published in the Biological Journal of the Linnean Society show how biologists have found a species with an apparent role reversal with the male eating the female. Mosquitoes supply spider with blood © 2010 PhysOrg.com More information: AISENBERG, A., COSTA, F. G. and GONZÁLEZ, M. (2011), Male sexual cannibalism in a sand-dwelling wolf spider with sex role reversal. Biological Journal of the Linnean Society, 102: no. doi: 10.1111/j.1095-8312.2011.01631.x Located in Uruguay, Dr. Anita Aisenberg and the team of biologists from the Clemente Estable Institute of Biological Research have been studying the Allocosa brasiliensis. This nocturnal wolf spider is found on South America’s Atlantic Ocean coast and within the riverbank sand dunes. The study of these spiders began as they are an indicator of the coastal habitats health.However, during this study, they observed a male spider eating a female spider and set out to determine if this behavior was normal for the species as it has never been observed before in any other species. Where female spiders are usually larger and the dominant of the two, the researchers have found that with the Allocosa brasiliensis, the male has a traditional role reversal.The male spiders were observed waiting in their burrows for the females searching for mates. From what was observed by the researchers, the male spiders tended to mate with the younger, more productive virgin female spiders. The older, less productive female spiders were instead eaten by the male spider. It appears that the choice of whether to eat or mate with a female spider is based on the higher reproductive possibility.The environment where the Allococa brasiliensis live is one of instability for the spiders and the prey is unpredictable. In addition to this the area offers extreme temperatures and strong winds. Dr. Aisenberg believes that this unstable environment may have been a contributing factor to the apparent role reversal and unusual sexual behavior.

In 2019, Jeff Bezos is the richest man in the world with an estimated net worth of $135 billion, thanks to his brainchild Amazon becoming the leading driver of commerce on the planet. Back in 1997, however, Bezos was just a hustling entrepreneur trying to sell books with his small startup website in the fledgling days of the internet.In a ’97 interview, an exponentially nerdier version of Bezos discusses what led him to leave his job at a hedge fund and start the online book store. He also touches on his plans to expand into selling other things in the future. That seems to have worked out.Everything starts with a vision, and one thing that is clear from this Q & A is that Bezos definitely had that. He hits the nail on the head about what the internet would become over the next 20 years and it clearly paid off. Advertisement

A TransAsia Airways flight tragically crashed into a river in Taiwan yesterday with at least 31 people killed in the incident.Footage has emerged of the incident, showing the TransAsia ATR-72 aircraft hitting a bridge as it came down shortly after take-off from Songshan Airport in North Taiwan, the BBC reported.The plane was carrying 58 people and broke up as it plunged into Taipei’s Keelung River, with the fuselage later salvaged by crane.Emergency teams cut open the plane while it was in the water but were unable to reach the passengers trapped in the front section of the fuselage.There were 15 survivors pulled from the wreckage, yet 12 people still remain unaccounted for.As night fell, a crane was used to lift the wreckage on to the bank, with the death toll expected to rise as rescue teams continued to search the fuselage for missing passengers.Flight controllers lost contact with the plane at 10:55 am local time with the final communication from the pilots to air traffic control was “Mayday, mayday, engine flame out.”The wreckage of the crash has been lifted out of the water and now resides on the river bank.Around 400 soldiers have been drafted in to help the recovery operation.This is the second TransAsia ATR-72 to crash in seven months, following an accident last July which killed 48 people and injured 15.Source = ETB Travel News: Lewis Wiseman
On 23 November, Cathy Wagstaff, Group Editor and CEO of Signature Media, along with a select group of VIP guests, attended the Sydney celebration of the reopening of The Ritz Paris, at Collette Dinnigan and Bradley Cock’s recently sold Watsons Bay residence.The luncheon was hosted by Roxy Jacenko, Founder and Director of Sweaty Betty PR, and Craig Adamson, Director, Australia and New Zealand, The Leading Hotels of the World.The lavish menu included filo pastry cigars with black olive salt on arrival; an entrée of ocean trout confit with Avruga caviar, cucumber carpaccio, fine herbs and spiced tomato oil; a main of milk-fed lamb with vegetables, snow peas and blueberry jus, and seasonal green leaves with chardonnay vinegar; and a dessert of chocolate almond nougat truffles and pistachio small cakes with poached peach.Cathy Wagstaff commented, “The house was built for entertaining.” The dining room was decorated with rose-coloured floral arrangements by lilac & willow, Rosebay, and guests were entertained by a talented pianist playing a grand piano throughout the afternoon.Dinnigan’s Watsons Bay house has recently been sold, just 18 months after she bought the former Masonic Temple for $6.25 million.
