Representing grounding line migration in synchronous coupling between a marine ice sheet model and a z -coordinate ocean model

first_imgSynchronous coupling is developed between an ice sheet model and a z-coordinate ocean model (the MITgcm). A previously-developed scheme to allow continuous vertical movement of the ice-ocean interface of a floating ice shelf (“vertical coupling”) is built upon to allow continuous movement of the grounding line, or point of floatation of the ice sheet (“horizontal coupling”). Horizontal coupling is implemented through the maintenance of a thin layer of ocean ( ∼ 1 m) under grounded ice, which is inflated into the real ocean as the ice ungrounds. This is accomplished through a modification of the ocean model’s nonlinear free surface evolution in a manner akin to a hydrological model in the presence of steep bathymetry. The coupled model is applied to a number of idealized geometries and shown to successfully represent ocean-forced marine ice sheet retreat while maintaining a continuous ocean circulation.last_img read more

Watch out, there’s a review about! ‘TripAdvisor’ for student accommodation rolls out across UK

first_imgHome » News » Watch out, there’s a review about! ‘TripAdvisor’ for student accommodation rolls out across UK previous nextProducts & ServicesWatch out, there’s a review about! ‘TripAdvisor’ for student accommodation rolls out across UKCribAdvisor was launched in July by two students in their adopted home city of Lincoln and will now be launched in other UK university cities.Nigel Lewis15th November 20190809 Views A reviews website for student accommodation landlords and letting agents launched in Lincoln this year has been so successful that it is to be rolled out across the UK.CribAdvisor is a TripAdvisor for student tenants which enables them to leave anonymous reviews about landlords and letting agents.The site has already attracted 450 reviews for properties in Lincoln, which is where founders Natasha Hopewell and Lawrence Thorpe completed their degrees.Although reviewers are able to leave moderated but anonymous comments about landlords or letting agents, they must register on the site using a valid student email address. Those they criticise have a right to reply.The idea for their website – which is a familiar one – came after battling a letting agent in their third year over a dispute which they only won after promising to sign a non-disclosure agreement.Hot waterHopewell claims one of her rental properties featured a broken hot water boiler that took weeks to fix and maintenance and letting agent staff who let themselves in without warning.Following these experiences, Hopewell has told The Guardian that she wants to “improve the standards of [rented properties] by giving students the tools to take control of their tenancies and demand from their providers,” she says.“Students renters are first-time renters. We are naive and inexperienced, with no idea of what to expect, our rights or what to do when things go wrong. Providers take advantage of students because they think they can get away it.”Lincoln is a hotbed for property service innovation. Earlier this year specialist student lettings firm Student Lets started up in the the city, and fast-growing hybrid agency Accommodation.co.uk was initially based there.Read more about Lincoln.CribAdvisor Natasha Hopewell City of Lincoln student accommodation November 15, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Easy Street: captain back from ACL tear

first_imgSenior Ben Street has returned from an ACL tear and leads the team with 33 shots on goal this year.[/media-credit]Ben Street doesn’t get too upset about things. His coach sees him as a calming presence, and Street even admits he doesn’t tend to be overly emotional. Even season-ending injuries can’t derail him.Street is a fifth-year senior on the Wisconsin men’s hockey team, but only because he suffered a season-ending ACL tear just four games into the 2008-09 season. Characteristically, Street took the injury with calm acceptance.“It was just one of those things where I was pretty sure my season was over,” he said. “The only thing on my mind was how I was going to get myself back and ready to go the next year.”Now that he’s back, the UW tri-captain is doing what he does best — shooting the puck. Street scored a game-clinching goal with just under two minutes left Friday night and leads the team with 33 shots on goal. Although it’s early in the season, the forward is content with how he’s played so far.“Pretty good, I obviously had to get a little rust off to start with. I think in some aspects, I’m still getting my timing back a little bit,” Street said. “But so far I’ve been able to contribute every once in a while and I haven’t been making a lot of mistakes defensively, so at least I’m not hurting the team.”The loss of Street last year meant the Badgers faced a big void in offense. Although players like Tom Gorowsky and John Mitchell picked up the scoring slack, Street’s contribution was sorely missed. Entering his fourth year, he had scored at least 10 goals in each of his first three full seasons.Coming off of the 2007-08 season, he had posted career bests with 13 goals and 17 assists. Street also led the team with four game-winning goals that season.And though his offensive presence was missed, head coach Mike Eaves didn’t understate how Street’s calm demeanor and experience were missed. He even went as far as to compare the senior to a four-time Stanley Cup winner.“It’s interesting, when you talk to older guys in the National Hockey League, when people talk about a captain like (Detroit Red Wings defenseman Nicklas) Lidstrom, they talk about how calm he is,” Eaves said. “And during a storm, [he says] ‘Hey, it’s OK, we’re a good team, things are going to be all right. We’ve got to continue to work hard and stay the course.’“And that’s the kind of personality Ben has anyways, and with his experiences, he brings that.”When Street went down, co-captain Blake Geoffrion and the two assistant captains stepped up to provide on-ice leadership. But Geoffrion said he didn’t feel any additional pressure to lead, as Street was still active with the team.“He was around, getting to know the freshmen, getting to know [guys], closer to guys that weren’t playing as much and being able to talk to him and help them through their adversity,” Geoffrion said. “It was definitely helpful.”And though he wasn’t on the ice with the team, Street made himself available to his teammates to talk. He also watched games as a spectator and said he learned a lot being able to break down the play from above.With Geoffrion and Co. taking care of things in the rink, Street could focus on his rehab and being a mentor.“So I kind of let those guys take the game by game stuff, [and] I tried to just be an outlet, be an away from hockey type of thing,” Street said. “I kind of had a bird’s-eye view of the games, so guys could come and ask me, ‘What’d you think, maybe coach saw it this way, but what do you think?’”Despite accepting his new role on the team and feeling confident about his rehab, even the ever-placid Street admitted the injury was mentally taxing.“I mean, it was — probably frustrating is be best word. It was one of those things where there’s not much you can do about it, I couldn’t play, I kind of accepted that pretty early,” he said. “It was tough, watching your teammates go out there and compete and not being able to help them. That part was frustrating.”Adding to the frustration, the Badgers missed the NCAA tournament by just 0.0002 of a point in the Ratings Percentage Index. The Badgers also lost 10 games last season by one goal — or about one game for each goal Street has averaged per season.But having the forward back for a fifth year can only help on a largely veteran squad.“We kind of have the same fold as he did when it was ’06 and they won the national championship, and that’s kind of what we’ve got now,” Geoffrion said. “He’s been able to help us through and give us different ideas of what their team and their culture was when they won in ’06.”And though Street’s production so far this season has been pedestrian — his three points (two goals, one assist) are tied for 11th on the team — he leads the team in shots on goal and is a respectable plus-2 for the season. His coach calls him “a shooter” and acknowledges how tough it is to return from injury. And after knowing Street for more than four years, Eaves is confident he’ll see a return to form.“It’s always tough to come back after a long layoff. And I know Ben’s somewhat frustrated in his point production, but as we’ve talked about, it’s going to take time,” Eaves said. “He’s getting shots, he’s getting chances — he’s clearly getting chances.“It’s just a matter of time. His best is yet to come, that’s for sure. That’s exciting.”last_img read more

Girls Golf Rocks is getting bigger and better

first_img11 Jan 2017 Girls Golf Rocks is getting bigger and better Girls Golf Rocks – the recruitment campaign which got over 600 girls swinging last year – is going to get bigger and better in 2017. The number of counties taking part will grow from nine to 15 – all aiming to get more girls playing golf, by offering coaching with PGA professionals and using young ambassadors from county squads to show that it’s a fun and sociable game. The new counties are: Bedfordshire, Cumbria, Kent, Leicestershire, Staffordshire, Wiltshire and Yorkshire. They’ll join Buckinghamshire, Cheshire, Dorset, Durham, Essex, Gloucestershire, Norfolk and Nottinghamshire. Taster sessions will be held by PGA professionals in March and April, when ambassadors will be on hand to encourage the new girls. They will all then be offered five weeks of group coaching, leading to a fun day with the ambassadors featuring multi-skill challenges and the chance to play on a golf course. During 2016, the nine counties involved attracted over 600 girls to taster sessions. More than 500 went on to take coaching courses and over 230 have already taken out some type of club membership. This coincides with a growing number of clubs and counties reporting an increasing girls’ membership. The project, run jointly by England Golf and the Golf Foundation, started in 2015 with a trial in Essex. Ambassadors and new players from the county are now featured in a Girls Golf Rocks video, which captures all that’s special about the programme. Bella Jay, 14, sums it up when she says: “Golf has done so much for me, I love it. You should come and join us and see how much fun it is.” Click here to view the video. Meanwhile, Ringway Golf Club in Cheshire has the distinction of attracting more girls than any other club in the country. Thanks to a link with local Loreto Grammar School 38 girls attended their taster session, which took place in a torrential downpour. Despite the weather the youngsters enjoyed it so much that they encouraged even more friends to come along and 49 took the coaching course. Already, eight have joined the club’s junior section – more than doubling the number of girl players – while one has achieved a handicap and three are well on the way to getting theirs. Head professional James Salt said: “The girls have all been fantastic and really got into it, they’ve been very eager and it’s been very enjoyable.” Elsewhere, nine-year-old Isabella Bleaken, from Westonbirt Golf Club in Gloucestershire, became one of the youngest ambassadors when she turned out to help, alongside other players from the county girls’ squad. Isabella, who plays off 25, showed the new players how she can hit the ball, then helped and reassured them as they got into the swing. She’s also been interviewed on BBC Radio Gloucestershire about the experience and her father, Mark, reports that her own confidence has rocketed. Isabella is also an ambassador for the England Golf Trust which helps young people in financial need to play the game. Lauren Spray, the England Golf Women and Girls’ Participation Manager, commented: “Girls Golf Rocks has been an amazing success and we’re looking forward to working with more counties and clubs and seeing many more girls come into the game. “We’ve got to say a special thank you to Isabella and all our 110 ambassadors who have been just brilliant at encouraging new girls to play. We couldn’t have done it without them!” As part of the jointly funded programme, girls taking part in coaching will be given a US Kids Golf 7-iron to help them get started. US Kids Golf is the official equipment supplier to the Golf Foundation for the Girls Golf Rocks projects and have additionally donated clubs for use at the taster sessions. Chief Executive of the Golf Foundation, Brendon Pyle, said: “The Golf Foundation is delighted to be working with England Golf on this key initiative to introduce more young girls to golf in England. “The expansion of the Girls Golf Rocks into 15 counties will ensure that more girls enjoy the opportunity to ‘Start, Learn and Stay’ in golf.  The key ingredient has been the willingness of the county squad girls to embrace the concept and inspire new young girls into the sport by helping as leaders and ambassadors.” Caption: Selfie time for Cumbria Girls Golf Rocks ambassadors (image © Leaderboard Photography).last_img read more

Cougars rain on Nelson parade, feast on Leafs during Cyclone opener

first_imgNelson Leafs face a must win as the Cyclone Taylor Cup enters Day two Friday at the NDCC Arena.Victoria Cougars rained on the parade of the home side, scoring five second-period goals to rout the home side 6-1 in action Thursday night before a disappointing home crowd at the NDCC Arena.The Leafs now face archrival Beaver Valley Nitehawks Friday at 7:30 p.m.The Hawks, tied with Victoria for top spot in Cyclone Taylor Cup standings, opened with a 4-1 win over Aldergrove Kodiaks.The Cougars, three-peat champs of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League, survived the opening period against a hungry Leafs team trying to make good after getting knocked out in the second round of the KIJHL playoffs.Victoria came out better than expected when Wade Johnson scored with three minutes remaining in the frame to give the Cougars a 1-0 lead. The Cougars then flexed their offensive muscle, out scoring Nelson 5-1 in the middle frame —counting four special teams markers as the power play connected for three goals.Sam McMullen led the charge with a power play goal and a shorthanded marker.Blake Roney (powerplay), Ryan Carson and Patrick Webb (powerplay) added singles.Troy Petrick stopped the bleeding with Nelson’s only goal that made the score 4-1 at the time.Victoria out shot Nelson 27-19 in the game.Connor Beauchamp was outstanding for Victoria to earn the win in goal.The Nanton, Alta., native was especially sharp in the first period when he denied Nelson shooters on a two-man breakaway, stacking the pads to stop Brandon Sookro before robbing Travis Wellman from the side of the net.Brad Rebagliati, who made his first start in the playoffs after sitting out the KIJHL playoffs with an injury, took the loss for Nelson in goal.TOURNEY NOTES: The feature game between Nelson and Victoria attracted 724 fans. . . .Prior to the Nelson/Victoria contest, all teams were present on the ice for the opening ceremonies. . . .

Time to make plans for the re-vamped West Kootenay Glacier Challenge

first_img“It was a big decision to change course and we put a lot of thought into the new route,” Dimock said, adding the new course is down in kilometers to 154 km.“We are working hard to make sure the 2015 tour is as much fun as our previous ones have been.”“This route change is just for one year and we plan to return to our original route for 2016 but this shorter version is giving us an opportunity to perhaps do a few things that aren’t possible on our longer route,” Dimock adds.“It also presents an opportunity for riders who may be a bit daunted by the longer ride to be able to participate in the MS Bike. It’s a great event for a great cause.”Proceeds from MS Bike fund vital MS research and programs & services that enable those affected by MS. To participate, all you need is a bike and a passion to end MS.Multiple sclerosis (MS), also known as disseminated sclerosis or encephalomyelitis disseminata, is an inflammatory disease in which the insulating covers of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord are damaged. This damage disrupts the ability of parts of the nervous system to communicate, resulting in a wide range of signs and symptoms, including physical, mental, and sometimes psychiatric problemsThis tour is run by the West Kootenay Chapter of the MS Society and the money raised supports the programs and services we offer in the West Kootenay and Boundary areas to people living with MS and their caregivers,” said Dimock.“It also helps us support vital research for new treatments, and ultimately to find a cure.”The top fundraiser in the West Kootenay Glacier Challenge receives a $200 gift certificate for dinner at their favourite restaurant in Nelson compliments The Nelson Daily.For more information on the MS Bike Tour — West Kootenay Glacier Challenge go to http://mssoc.convio.net/site/TR?fr_id=3881&pg=entry or contact Leona Dimock at 1-866-352-3997 or [email protected] The route may have been changed — just for this year — but the goal remains the same for participants in the West Kootenay Glacier Challenge — help fight MS (Multiple sclerosis).Riders and donors alike are already gearing up for the annual race set for August 22-23 in Nelson and area.“Everyone who joins us, whether as a rider, a donor or a volunteer is helping to reach our goal — to end MS,” said Leona Dimock, West Kootenay Glacier Challenge Bike Tour Coordinator.Not only has Dimock been busy with organizing, but the committee has spent most of the spring re-working the course after learning crews would be paving 40 kilometers of highway through on the race course this summer.“Our Route Coordinator started communicating with Selkirk Paving back in April about the plans for resurfacing and they were very willing to work with us and accommodate our cyclists and volunteers through the construction zone, but in the end we decided for the sake of safety, as well as the quality of the experience for our riders, to change the route to avoid that area,” Dimock explained.The new route means the ride, set for Saturday August 22, begins in Nelson, travels to Salmo before returning back to Rotary Lakeside Park for the traditional Save-On-Foods Celebration Dinner.Sunday, riders leave Lakeside Park, head over the Big Orange Bridge on Highway 3A for Proctor and back to Nelson.last_img read more
