Zircon U-Pb dating of Mesozoic volcanic and tectonic events in northwest Palmer Land and southwest Graham Land, Antarctica

first_imgNew whole rock Rb-Sr and zircon U-Pb geochronological data and Sm-Nd isotopic data are presented from the central magmatic arc domain of the Antarctic Peninsula in the area of northwest Palmer Land and southwest Graham Land, Rb-Sr isochrons indicate an age of 169±6 Ma for basement orthogneisses and 132±9 to 71±9 Ma for plutons. A U-Pb age of 183 ± 2.1 Ma, with no detectable inheritance, on zircons from an orthogneiss from Cape Berteaux provides the first reliable age for the orthogneisses, which are interpreted as metamorphosed silicic volcanic rocks, and Sm-Nd data indicate derivation in a mature volcanic arc. The age indicates they may be correlatives of the Jurassic ‘Chon Aike’ volcanism of the eastern Antarctic Peninsula. A U-Pb zircon age of 107 ± 1.7 Ma on a terrestrial volcanic sequence overlying an uncomformity strongly suggests a mid-Cretaceous age for the extensive volcanic cover of northwest Palmer Land that was previously thought to be Jurassic. The unconformity is interpreted to have been a result of compressional uplift related to the Palmer Land event. This is the first date for the event in the western part of the central magmatic arc terrane of the Antarctic Peninsula.last_img read more

This year we will give delegates who are not able to attend in person and have booked prior to 11 March, the opportunity to access via a live stream,” said the spokesman.ARLA said it was confident the rescheduled Propertymark Conference and Exhibition on 2 September at London’s Excel would remain a vital forum for attendees to get up to date on a host of topical issues, keep abreast of changing legislation and network with colleagues in the industry.A roundtable discussion will look at the changes to Section 21.“As we approach regulation, recruitment and retention are something business owners are keen to understand and implement – there will be an examination on how agents can achieve this with ample opportunity for questions,” said the spokesman. ARLA conference postponed coronavirus ARLA ARLA Conference March 12, 2020Richard ReedWhat’s your opinion?

Boycott Israeli Macbooks?

first_imgThe note, written by student Ed Klinger, pointed out the irony of a ‘Boycott Israeli Goods’ sticker on a Macbook, which uses a flash storage system designed by Israeli technology firm Anobit.Klinger, however, was quick to assert that his motivations were strictly apolitical. He posted on Facebook shortly after, “Having just accomplished one of my life-long goals (the Facebook Millennium) I feel the need to point out that my recent upload was intended as a funny observation and nothing more.“It wasn’t designed to convey any political allegiance to Israel, against Palestine, or anyone else; it was merely to highlight the hypocrisy of a hilariously placed sticker.“I say this because I’ve been contacted by a bunch people and even been featured on international websites which unfairly infer my political beliefs from a single image.”last_img read more

The boards’ president says putting on the event collectively is the best way.“All of us can tell our own stories powerfully but when you put all our stories together, the message gets from far and wide,” said Amy Word, president of the Franklin Street Events Association. When we do that in the spirit of collaborativeness, it sure makes a difference in the outcome.”The parade drew about 40 entries this year.

first_img We hope that today’s “IS IT TRUE” will provoke honest and open dialogue concerning issues that we, as responsible citizens of this community, need to address in a rational and responsible way?IS IT TRUE that Evansville’s Mayor Lloyd Winnecke got a bit more real in his State of the City address this year and publicly acknowledged some of the problems that the City County Observer has been pointing out since Weinzapfel was in charge?…the Mayor’s lackluster address was certainly a departure from the “everything is beautiful” and “#strongcity” propaganda that has dominated the public persona of his time in office?…one does need to acknowledge problems to have a prayer of solving them so on that basis the CCO says “congratulations Mayor Winnecke?IS IT TRUE that Mayor Winnecke for the first time in what is usually an unconditional love fest State of the City speech that ignores problems pointed out that 8,670 potholes were filled, 160 water mains broke just in January of this year, the EFD responds to 20-30 drug overdoses per month (that is one every day)?IS IT TRUE he also stated that 315 blighted houses were torn down?…we also remind the Mayor that while demolishing 315 houses is an expensive and time consuming task that there are still 10,000 to go?…at this rate of demolition the last of today’s dilapidated houses will be torn down in roughly the year 2050 by which time there will be more?IS IT TRUE we need to point out because of the recent bad weather that there may be even more potholes than there were before the 8,670 were filled, the drug problem is seemly getting worse than last year, and the water main breaks are the tip of the iceberg since most of the water mains are over 75 years old?  …it looks like our Mayor has his work cut out for him?IS IT TRUE that Mayor Winnecke even owned up to the homicide statistics so far this year? …on the very day that Mayor Winnecke was acknowledging this carnage, two shootings and a stabbing occurred in the 900 block of Independence Avenue just off of South Kentucky Avenue that was once a high society neighborhood?…the day before an adult was arrested for allegedly beating a 17-year-old to death with his bare hands? …it looks like the Mayor has a major challenge in making Evansville a safe, and tranquil city once again?IS IT TRUE that the other topic of the day was Mayor Winnecke’s glee that perhaps the $729 million settlement made with the EPA to reduce the raw sewage overflows into the Ohio River may be appealed since he believes President Trump may be more accommodating of those who prefer to release raw sewage into the Ohio River than the previous administration?  …we hope the Mayor is wrong about the President being more accommodating about releasing more raw sewage into the Ohio River for us to consume?IS IT TRUE yesterday the Evansville Redevelopment Commission awarded a contract to build the 72-space paved parking lot for Ragle, Inc located directly right behind  Dilegge’s restaurant, off North Main Street? …it was also stated that “City officials are hoping more public parking in the area will encourage people to utilize the bike path?”IS IT TRUE we wonder who owned the vacant lot located directly behind Dilegge’s Restaurant?  …we wonder if this project was put out for public bid?  …we wonder what did the DMD pay for the property?  …we also wonder how much is it going to cost to have a 72 car parking lot paved?  …we wonder why City Councilman and Finance Chairman Jonathon Weaver isn’t calling for transparency concerning this deal?IS IT TRUE according to Channel 44 News that the Evansville DMD Director explained the above parking lot transaction as follows; he stated: “that this comes after on-street parking was lost on the east side of North Main Street with the addition of the new bike path?”  …it was further stated; “that the lot will replace one of the parcels the city lost on North Main Street and Columbia Street?”  … “In that process, they leased the entire property which took the parking from the public domain to their private business so the lot we’re going to build on the east side of North Main then replaces that Davita Dialysis Center’s taking of that parking lot.” …all we can say about this statement is “what in the heck is this guy talking about”? …if you want to know more about the transaction please go to today’s City-County Observer and click on the TV interview article concerning parking behind Dilegge’s Restaurant?IS IT TRUE that The Indiana Right to Life PAC just announced its endorsement of Mike Braun for U.S. Senate in the 2018 Primary Election? …a spokesman for the Indiana Right To Life said; “that Mike Braun has always fought to protect the lives of the unborn and will continue to do so in the U.S. Senate?”  …that Mr. Braun is a father of four children, he is proud to receive this endorsement in recognition of his staunch pro-life voting record?IS IT TRUE we urge you to attend the “Guns and Hoses XI” event this coming April 7, 2018, at the Ford Center because it’s for worthy causes?Todays “Readers Poll” question is: Are you pleased with the overall progress of Evansville since Mr. Winnecke took office?Please take time and read our articles entitled “Statehouse Files, Channel 44 News, Daily Devotions, Law enforcement, Readers Poll, Birthdays, Hot Jobs, and Local Sports.You are now are able to subscribe to get the CCO daily.If you would like to advertise on the CCO please contact us [email protected] LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

OCHS Football Aces Final Pre-season Exam

first_imgIt may have only been a scrimmage. But the Ocean City Red Raiders looked very good in their final pre-season action Saturday against Cinnaminson at Carey Stadium.The Raiders defense was perfect, pitching a shutout – its second straight– and new quarterback Joe Repetti threw for three touchdowns as Ocean City beat Cinnaminson 19-0.The Red Raiders lining up against the Cinnaminson Pirates. Photo Credit: Ian CrowleyIt was particularly encouraging because Cinnaminson came into the game with a state ranking of 56 by the website MaxPreps and is coming off an 8-3 season that saw the Pirates win the West Jersey Football conference Patriot Division and make it to the second round of the State Group II playoffs. In contrast, MaxPreps has OC ranked 153rd statewide and the Raiders went 4-6 overall last year.”We saw a lot of good things today,” head coach Kevin Smith said on the team’s website. “Cinnaminson is a tough football team and they moved the ball on us. But we made plays when we had to and we handled adversity well. We have a long way to go but today was encouraging.”After an interception in the end zone, an Ocean City player made it all the way to the Pirates 30-yard line. Photo Credit: Ian CrowleyBoth teams’ defenses dominated a scoreless first quarter. Senior running back Issac Wilson’s 11-yard touchdown reception from Repetti broke the ice, capping a 53-yard drive. A missed extra point and stalled Cinnaminson drive ended the half with OC up 6-0.The opening play of the second half saw Repetti connect on a slat play to Brian Beckman, who slipped past a would-be tackler and broke free for an electrifying TD covering 70 yards, and Brendan McGonigle tacked on the extra point kick.Cinnaminson put a drive together later in the quarter, penetrating the red zone and making it all the way to the OC 6-yard line. But Pirate QB Shawn Ruffin’s pass was tipped by Colby Felix and linebacker Tommy Oves picked it off and went 70 yards the other way to the Cinnaminson 30.Number 10 from Cinnaminson is tackled by a gang of Ocean City players after his run.

The second missed extra point of the day left the score at 19-0, which held up over the scoreless fourth period.The win left a good feeling for the Raiders to build on in their final practices before traveling to Lower Cape May Friday night for the season opener at 6 pm. The Caper Tigers went 6-4 last season and it should be a good test for both teams.Ocean City’s offense and defense played a near perfect game. It was a great way to end the pre-season. Photo Credit: Ian Crowley”They’ll be ready for us, no doubt,” Smith said. “But we’ll be ready too. It’s nice to finally get going. I’m looking forward to the regular season.”New Athletic Director Geoff Haines said he was impressed with the team and the coaching staff.“We have a nice mix of kids and (veteran players),” he said. “The team and the coaching staff have been working hard all summer.”Photo Credit: Ian Crowley****Thanks to for providing scrimmage details**** OC mixes it up with a strong Cinnaminson team during Thursday morning’s final pre-season scrimmage.
