Marine and rift sediments exert a fundamental control on ice stream flow in the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, and hence on its mass balance and stability. In contrast, most ice streams in the much larger East Antarctic Ice Sheet are thought to be relatively stable features resting on till, perhaps underlain by crystalline rock. Any geological controls on East Antarctic Ice Sheet enhanced flow remain largely unknown. We present aerogeophysical evidence indicating that a region of enhanced ice flow in the interior of the East Antarctic Ice Sheet is underlain by subglacial sediments 3 km thick and that these are influencing the flow regime of the overlying ice. We show that subglacial sediments are important in modulating ice dynamics, not just for the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, but also for its much larger neighbor, and suggest that the sedimentary basin identified here may contain information on the Neogene glacial history of this part of the East Antarctic Ice Sheet.

Foxtons revenues across its three core areas of business fell during the first three months of the year compared to the same period of 2016, the company has revealed.Commission from sales sank by 44.5% from £20m to £11.1 million, lettings revenues were down slightly from £15.8m to £15.5m and mortgage broking fees fell by £500,000 to £2.1m.The company says the dramatic drop in sales revenue has been created by last year’s rush by landlords and second homes buyers to buy properties before the Stamp Duty increase deadlines.This has left a sizeable hole in its first quarter 2017 group revenues which dropped by 25% from £38.4m last year to £28.7m. But Foxtons’ board says this was “expected”.Sales commissionSimilar reductions in revenue particularly from sales commissions reported in its 2016 accounts were said by Foxtons chairman Garry Watts to be caused by a substantial reduction in transactions in London, driven principally by rising house prices, stamp duty changes and the EU referendum.The results have pushed the company’s strategy off-course somewhat – it’s stated aim to investors for some time now has been to target “higher-volume, higher-value residential property markets within London”.Its shares on the London stock exchange fell nearly 1.5% following the trading statement, although despite the bleak news from the London market, its shares have in general been rallying since the end of March.Foxtons says it will release its interim results for the first half of 2017 on July 27th.trading update 2017 results Foxtons May 17, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Jonathan Greenert; Mrs. Darleen Greenert, sponsor for Hyman G. Rickover (SSN 795) attend the naming ceremony in January 2015. Photo: US Navy The US Navy laid the keel for future Virginia-class submarine Hyman G. Rickover (SSN 795) in a ceremony at General Dynamics Electric Boat in Connecticut, on May 11.The initials of the submarine’s sponsor, Darleen Greenert, were welded onto a steel plate that will be permanently affixed to the submarine. She is the wife of former Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jonathan Greenert (retired).The submarine began construction on Sept. 30, 2015, and is on track to be delivered within budget and ready for tasking by the fleet, according to the navy.This will be the second submarine to be named after Adm. Hyman G. Rickover to honor the pioneer of the nuclear Navy. The first submarine named for the admiral was the Los Angeles-Class submarine USS Hyman G. Rickover (SSN 709), which served from 1984 to 2006.Adm. Frank Caldwell, Jr., director of the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program, stated, “Adm. Rickover’s gift to our Nation’s defense – safe, reliable and militarily superior naval nuclear propulsion – is as vital to our warfighting edge today as it was at the beginning of the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program 70 years ago. The US Navy and our nation are proud to honor his achievements and legacy with this submarine.”Adm. Rickover served for 63 years on active duty service, making him the longest serving member of the US armed forces in history. In the late 1940s, Adm. Rickover was made director of the Naval Reactors Branch of the Bureau of Ships and he subsequently led the efforts to develop what would become the USS Nautilus, the world’s first nuclear-powered submarine. Adm. Rickover also established and enforced strict safety standards, leading to the US Navy’s safety record of over 162,000,000 miles safely steamed on nuclear power.Other Virginia-class milestones this year include the commissioning of the USS Indiana (SSN 789) and the combined keel laying and christening of USS Vermont (SSN 792), both currently projected to occur in the fall.

Blues guitarist/singer Gary Clark Jr. has released the second single set to appear on his forthcoming solo album, This Land. The new song is titled “I Walk Alone”, and follows the previously-shared “This Land” which arrived early last month to go with the album’s announcement. Clark had also debuted another new song titled, “Feed The Babies”, with help from Jon Batiase during his live performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert back on January 10th as well.“I Walk Alone” hears Clark returning to his bluesy-rock roots, as the song features an abundance of heavy distortion to go with a pulsating drum beat. The heavy, slightly darker instrumentation of the song is balanced by the glistening sounds of a keyboard, which ring out every so often to go with as Clark’s vocal performance. For someone who’s isn’t quite known for their vocal octave range, Clark really impresses in reaching a pretty high vocal register throughout the 3:45-minute recording. Speaking of the vocals, Clark doesn’t hide the fact that he’s really channeling his inner-darkness while belting out the lyrics, “I move in darkness ’cause the darkness always soothes me/It’s natural, but I don’t wanna be alone.”Fans can tune into the official audio in the video below to hear the new song in full.Gary Clark Jr. – “I Walk Alone”[Video: Gary Clark Jr.]Clark also took to his social media outlets on Thursday to share the announcement that he’ll be making his performance debut on Saturday Night Live later this month by appearing on the episode scheduled to air on February 16th. Coincidentally, the televised performance will take place the day following his 35th birthday on February 15th! Don’t look now, but 2019 is shaping up to be what should be a pretty solid year for the popular blues guitarist.This Land is scheduled for a March 1st release via Warner Bros. Records.

BOGOTÁ — The Colombian military must counter the symbols and rhetoric employed by Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) rebels, specialists in psychological warfare and local politics told a group of officers at a four-day seminar in Bogotá. Ronald P. Archer, special advisor to USSOCOM (Special Operations Command) said that the FARC — Colombia’s most violent terrorist group — still has “significant power despite being defeated militarily.” Speaking Oct. 2 at Bogotá’s Club Militar, he said the FARC now focuses its ideological activities on recruitment, indoctrinating combatants, directing propaganda at civilians in conflict zones and feeding lies to Colombians and people overseas. “The Armed Forces needs to take the initiative in improving civilian-military relations and this will in turn combat the FARC’s claims that the state has abandoned their territory.” Archer told his audience. “The FARC’s propaganda must be studied in its minutiae to improve our understanding of the insurgent’s narrative.” Consistent messages work best Archer said the Colombian military’s narrative must be consistent — and that it must focus on cultural, religious and civic values shared by most of Colombia’s 46 million inhabitants. He pointed out that even though the family is the moral compass that guides Colombian culture and offers security, “the FARC rejects the idea of a traditional family and replaces it with a revolutionary identity.” Archer said that the terrorist group’s romanticized, revolutionary propaganda reaches universities — which are ideal recruiting grounds for new FARC combatants — yet is outdated and far removed from the realities on the ground. “The FARC realized very quickly in the 1980s that they had to get their message out there and directed their efforts to an international audience,” said Henry Cancelado, a political scientist at Bogotá’s Universidad Nacional. “The FARC’s reliance on actual foot-soldier activity is minimal alongside their management of the media and their political marketing — for example, publishing videos on YouTube. They truly believe and know that the more public they make their cause, the better and the further their message will reach.” Using social media wisely These days, said Cancelado, Colombia’s Armed Forces are up to speed on Facebook and Twitter, and in creating a counter-narrative to FARC propaganda. “If the FARC lose the support of their followers and active members, it does not matter how much money or how many bullets they possess. They are going to lose.” Salúd Hernández, a correspondent for Colombia’s El Tiempo and Spain’s El Mundo newspapers, suggested that the practice of using radio stations to call upon guerrillas to demobilize and turn themselves in be ended. She said it was well-known that guerrillas do not listen to those particular radio stations, and that those who do are subsequently punished by their superiors. Added Cancelado: “We should be affecting and damaging their support networks and image overseas. The struggle must be won with social support and showing up their moral corruption.” Archer noted that the FARC’s key support “comes from the regions of Colombia that have been subjected to years of guerrilla indoctrination.” And while those ideologies “may be leading the guerrilla group down an antiquated path,” he said that populations living in those regions need to see real change and promises fulfilled in order for the government to win their hearts and minds. The struggle for political power in the brother People of Colombia, between the incumbent Governments and the FARC guerrilla movement must be staged at the peace table. And the dialogue of the two parties should be free of hatred, the feeling of pain which generate wars, and of the pain and ardor of revenge. Leaving these and others negatives elements behind can help them achieve a good dialogue and a happy outcome for the homeland of Colombia, and everything because of Colombians, from Colombians and for Colombians. From Puerto Rico, we wish the best to our brother country. What a poor memory Colombians have. The Farc initially was the armed arm of the extreme left. At present, its previous philosophy of struggle for social claims disappeared as the Soviet Union is gone and it was changed for a lucrative business of death, based on the drug trade, kidnappings, extortion, robberies, etc. To begin to negotiate with bandits is difficult, because their business is so lucrative that it is also supported by hidden forces, they will never deliver it. This is shown in the history. LetÂ´s continue struggling and praying to our HEAVENLY FATHER to change their hearts is our exit. The vast majority was shocked by the war of bullets and don’t see other wars, for example, the life blood that is lost in hospitals by State corruption, the malnutrition of millions of Colombians that is reflected in their ravenous faces, the indignity of extreme opulence of very few “Christians”, opposite masses in misery of cramped capitals. IsnÂ´t that a war, you myopic people. they think they are so special with their army, and they haven’t even been able to handle a little group of rebels freedom for all those who are kidnapped. Innocent people… It doesn’t do any good to keep up a fight that causes so much pain and property damage, and that is frowned upon by the world. It is much better to implement government agreements for employment with fair remuneration, education and health for all combatants. This will truly bring peace, progress and a bright future for this great Colombian country. Foreign investment, industry and tourism will grow exponentially; consequently, the average Colombian will raise his standard of living like he never dreamed before. There will be no need to go to other countries, since Colombia will have everything readily available. Greetings. Wars helped reduce population, which in my opinion is the cause for the misery in Colombia and in many parts of the world. Today you don’t see that, a lot of technology and complex weapons are being deployed and very little results (deaths). The world population has to be decreased because in a few years we won’t even have water for our grandchildren, and there will certainly be wars. It is urgent to find ways to achieve this reduction, it is urgent to intensify the war, that way it will be over soon. As long as there is corruption, injustice, impunity, inequality, privileges and lack of opportunities, it will be very difficult to achieve real and long-lasting peace. The description for guerrilla is different: the dictionary says: the person who kills, sets fire, steals, kidnaps, etc. is a bandit. From now on they will be called BANDITS. Furthermore, 80% of the 40 millions residents, every time they commit arbitrary acts, the bandits will be left without mothers. GENTLEMEN JOURNALISTS, LEADERS AND SERVERS OF THE THREE BRANCHES OF GOVERNMENT: COULD IT BE THAT THESE ARMED GROUPS, SUBVERSIVE, PARAMILITARY OR OF ANY OTHER COMBATIVE DENOMINATION AGAINST THE ESTABLISHMENT, ORIGINATE BECAUSE OF THE INJUSTICE COMMITTED AGAINST DEFENSELESS, SIMPLE CITIZENS, BECAUSE OF THE GREED TO OBTAIN WEALTH, NO MATTER HOW, AT THE EXPENSE OF THOSE COMPATRIOTS IN POSITION OF INFERIORITY OR VULNERABILITY? TO SHOW AN EXAMPLE OF THIS SOCIAL INEQUALITY, REFER TO THE NEWS AIRED BY NOTICIAS UNO ON SATURDAY FEBRUARY 9 OF THIS YEAR, DURING ITS BROADCAST AT NINE O’CLOCK AT NIGHT, HEADLINING THE DISPUTE ON THE REPEATED FRAUD COMMITTED AGAINST THE COLOMBIAN SOCIAL SECURITY, BY THE OCCUPATIONAL RISKS INSURANCE COMPANY POSITIVA S. A. AND THE AUTHORITIES AREN’T TAKING ANY ACTION! IMMUNITY?… CARTE BLANCHE? (“Z”)… IMPUNITY?… WHAT SECRET INTERESTS, OBSCURE AGREEMENTS OR PERMANENT BENEFITS HOLDS THE POLITICAL CLASS IN ORDER TO BE PERMISSIVE WITH THESE CORRUPT BEHAVIORS THAT COMPROMISE THE SUPREME EXECUTIVE POWER, MINISTERS OF CORRESPONDING DEPARTMENTS WITH THEIR CONTROL AND MONITORING BODIES; OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE NATION, OFFICE OF THE COMPTROLLER AND AUDITOR GENERAL OF THE REPUBLIC; HOUSE AND SENATE AS LEGISLATIVE POWER WITH THEIR POLITICAL CONTROL AND THE OTHER POWER THAT SADLY HAS BECOME TRIVIAL, THE WAY [“IN”]JUSTICE HAS. COMMENT OF MARINO VEEDOR, FIGHTING FOR THE PEACE AND EQUALITY OF THE COLOMBIANS, VICTIMS OF THE TYRANNY OF THE DISASTROUS CORRUPTION THAT IS DESTROYING OUR BELOVED COUNTRY, WHERE WE CAN ASK OURSELVES, MALICIOUSLY, AND WHERE IS THE MANAGER WE CHOSE FOR THIS COMPANY? for many years the separation between the state established legitimately and the groups outside the law has increased, because of capitalist inequality of services, education, health, paved access ways so that the one who grows food has the ability to take his products to the city; on top of all this we have to create a system so that the farmer is not robbed by intermediates, a farmer comes with a bag of bananas and the inter pays for it as they wish, there is no one to put a price on those products, that’s why they stop growing legal crops and they start growing the illegal kind, because the illegal is bought in bulk and they don’t have to carry and beg in order to be able to sell what they have produced. The day the government protects its farmers, things will change. the struggle for political power between the governments in the sister-country Colombia is not doing any good. The dialogue between the two parties should be free of hatred, of the feeling of pain caused by wars, and of the pain and ardor of revenge. What is happening with the Colombian people and our governors, any illiterate person with delusions of dictatorship comes around and takes away from us half of the Caribbean Sea, and nevertheless we go on as if nothing happened, our indolence and that of our ruling class have caused that, for several decades, our neighbors have been trying to take advantage of our natural resources under the accommodating watch of our governments, who only think about profiting during their time at power for their own stingy interests. I think and respectfully suggest that our army and our police must initiate projects, provide education, attend issues on primary health in all those small towns where the State has not arrived yet, with all that it takes farmers to avoid being bought by the outlawed groups. The army and the police should have two groups in parallel, one to maintain military and police presence and another to provide State presence by offering services like the ones described above. This way we will be restoring the confidence that peasants of Colombia have lost. In a prestigious newspaper form Tolima, I read the statements of a great man who was an attorney of the nation, and who states the actual truth on how all the bad things are not just the FARC and he’s right. Everyone in the country blames them for everything because the state is behind them, but they neglect or go along with what’s most damaging for the country, and that’s the fucking administrative corruption where a company steals billions and if they get caught, these criminals who steal our taxes are treated delicately and with benevolence, and are locked up in cells where they have all their toys, and if they are retired, they continue to receive their juicy pensions. This has to change and surely Colombians will live better in the future. How can I believe this lady Salud Hernandez, correspondent of the newspaper El Tiempo. I think it’s disrespectful to write these publications, according to her the army radio stations don’t fulfill their purpose as subversive people do not listen to them, because according to this lady, the guerrilla men are punished for listening to these stations. But I suggest she do more research on this topic because this issue goes beyond listening or not to the army radio stations, because in the course of these months and years the demobilization of these illegal armed groups has increased due to direct and indirect matters regarding radio broadcasting of the messages; as the demobilized guerrilla men themselves say, they have been listening secretly to these stations, and messages are given through relatives of these subversive people, informing them on the plans and benefits provided by the government regarding the demobilization. With this I’d like to tell this lady that this is only one part of what is done with the radio broadcasting and that I think it’s strange that this educated and experienced lady doesn’t study the topics before writing or speaking. I KEEP THINKING THAT IF COLOMBIA SHARES THIS CAKE, WE WILL REACH PEACE MORE OR LESS, OTHERWISE WE WILL CONTINUE PROMOTING WAR. By Dialogo October 08, 2012
With the latest Q3 2019 call report data in, it looks like the median average size credit union in the U.S. now holds around $35 million in assets. It’s useful to put that in perspective. Fully half of the nation’s approximate 5,400 credit unions are at that asset size or smaller and they likely have fewer than 12 employees. So, for most credit unions, the idea of having a Chief Learning Officer (CLO) is pretty unrealistic.In fact, most credit unions are challenged to have specialized C-suite executives in other important areas like technology, culture, member experience or business development. And yet, most any credit union leader would attest to the importance of training, leadership development and culture enhancements tied to a commitment to employee development.My guess is that even among larger credit unions, the idea of a dedicated Chief Learning Officer may be an expensive luxury where this function is instead blended with other human resources functions or shared with outside service providers who help with the training function. Certainly, state and national associations and CUSOs help meet many of these training needs very well.But technology can level the playing field in many areas for credit unions. Customizable learning management systems like CUSG’s TLC360 platform can allow credit unions and CUSOs to create their own digital university that blends soft skills training with core system and frontline skills and resources for leadership development. And shared learning universities can also be created.One CUSO that creates a collaborative and shared-cost platform for learning is Grand Rapids Michigan-based CU*Answers. With a 50-year anniversary milestone in 2020, CEO Randy Karnes and President/COO Geoff Johnson have built a true cooperative ecosystem at CU*Answers. Their CU*BASE core data processing software is used by 182 credit unions across a 22-state footprint. These credit unions range in size from 600, to over 100,000 members.But equally impressive is the CUSO’s commitment to helping these owner credit unions achieve their staff training needs. CU*Answers offers CU*Answers University with hundreds of online training courses, in-person training sessions, virtual training opportunities and a robust library of training videos. The course library and calendar include a heavy emphasis on the CUSO’s CU*BASE software but extends to soft skills training, member service basics and even leadership development and board training.So, beginning in 2020, how will your credit union address the important function of board and staff development that would typically be the role of a Chief Learning Officer?In the January-February edition of Harvard Business Review, the role of larger company Chief Learning Officers was explored. As I read this article, I considered its relevance to credit unions. Here are a few thoughts:First, credit unions should know that workplace learning has become a key lever for success in any successful company. The most progressive companies might call their CLOs “Transformer CLOs” because the new role includes the reshaping of culture to shift from the development of skills to the development of mindsets and capabilities to be more experiential and immediate.As an example of this, I recently attempted to deposit two checks in my checking account using my credit union’s remote deposit capture function, something I had used very often in the past. But in this case, after two attempts, the deposits were rejected and I failed to understand the auto-respond message explaining that my endorsement needed to include, “for mobile deposit only” on the endorsement line. And so, not wanting to deal with the call center, I visited a branch on my way to work where a teller explained the new credit union policy on remote endorsements.I wondered how many other members had been similarly confused and negatively impacted by this policy change? This would be a good example of experiential and immediate member-driven training that could be done to improve the member experience.So, while a strong learning management system like CUSG’s TLC360 might be a first step in this direction, credit unions should also gather staff to discuss member service feedback in a more immediate, weekly or monthly manner as opposed to just offering training courses. This is where an experiential real-time learning culture dovetails with the important priority of improving member experience.This coordination doesn’t have to be done by a dedicated Chief Learning Officer. More realistically, it would be assigned to a member of senior management, especially in smaller credit unions.Second, leadership development needs to cascade down from the top. Every CEO and every senior leader needs to commit to moving from skill development to changing mindsets and behaviors to better meet the credit union’s objectives. This can then cascade through the organization in monthly coaching meetings by asking simple questions like, “what do we need to be doing differently in our various service areas?”Third, realize that different methods of training apply to different audiences and skill development needs. For instance, purely digital formats like TLC360 and turnkey videos are best suited for hard skills, mandatory training and simple topics. But face-to-face or blended formats work better for soft skills, ad hoc training and more complex topics. Digital formats are better for larger groups and remote employees making TLC360 a valuable tool. And relying on resources from trade associations and CUSOs might apply better to the face-to-face formats.The bottom-line takeaway for credit unions is this: In a dynamic, digital and hyper-competitive world of talent acquisition and retention, credit unions of all sizes need a roadmap for an improved learning culture. Most can’t afford a dedicated Chief Learning Officer function, but the deliverables can be achieved with a team approach or by assigning this important function to another senior team member.As credit unions excel in this area, improved member experience and credit union growth will be facilitated. CUSG looks forward to offering performance management solutions that work together in areas of learning, performance and compensation management. The TLC360 product provides a great solution to help meet these needs. 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Dave Adams Dave Adams is President / Chief Executive Officer of CU Solutions Group.
