For more than 60 yr, electronic tags (including acoustic transmitters, archival loggers, and satellite tags) have been applied to free-ranging marine vertebrates to track their behaviour and characterize their spatial ecology. However, only recently have researchers begun using electronic tags to elucidate the processes that relate directly to fitness, i.e. the ability of organisms to survive and reproduce. We briefly review the history of tracking studies focused on marine vertebrates and then provide a general overview of studies that have used tracking to address fitness-related questions. Although many studies have used at-sea movement and activity data to better understand feeding ecology, physiology, and energetics, there is growing interest in the coupling of electronic tracking techniques with other disciplines to resolve the mechanisms underlying individual fitness, or more precisely the proxies thereof (survival, timing of reproduction, foraging success, etc.). We categorized studies into 4 general fitness-related areas: (1) foraging dynamics, energetics, and growth; (2) migration and other non-breeding season activities; (3) survival; and (4) reproduction. Despite recent advances in tracking technologies, which include multi-sensor loggers, tri-axial accelerometers, and miniaturized geopositioning systems, etc., very few studies on wild marine vertebrates truly measure individual fitness or proxies thereof. There is thus a need to design experimental, multi-disciplinary, and longitudinal studies that use genetics, individual-based modeling, and other techniques in an effort to resolve the mechanisms responsible for individual variation in fitness in marine vertebrates.

The health effects of isolation can be worse on the body than smoking or obesity.“Social isolation over time has devastating negative consequences. It’s the health equivalent of smoking 15 cigarettes a day,” said Lisa Marsh Ryerson, president of the AARP Foundation. “It is worse for our health than obesity. It leads to increased incidence of heart disease. It could lead to early cognitive decline.”Some of the restrictions on visiting people at nursing homes in Indiana were relaxed before coronavirus case numbers started to go up again, with some inside socially-distanced visits allowed.Now, some of the previous restrictions are going back in place in areas like Vanderburgh County, where more people are being infected. Outside visits will still be allowed, and are encouraged. But, workers at several care facilities tested positive.Ryerson, who has been studying the effects of isolation for about a decade, said the pandemic has made it even more clear that older people are seriously affected by having limited or no contact with their loved ones.“Call the nursing home. It is your right and they need to let you know what the restrictions are and more importantly the status of your loved one and to allow you to set up a time for you to talk with your loved one.”She said that could be by phone or Zoom.Ryerson said many elderly people who work have also had to give up those jobs, at least temporarily, also isolating them. She said you can help your elderly neighbors by reaching out.“Now is the time when we need to reach out and know our older neighbors,” she said. “Give them a phone call. Knock on their door and then appropriately physically distance and see if they have needs. If you’re heading out to get your groceries, can you get their groceries? Do they need help picking up their prescriptions?”She said everyone has experienced vulnerability during the pandemic and it is her hope that more people will be open to understanding the isolation that older people might face.“It may help us really be a better neighbor and reach out to the older adults in our lives, as well.” AARP: Social isolation over time has devastating negative consequence WhatsApp WhatsApp
Bundled in the warmth of your sleeping bag as you drift into a slumber, you are startled by the coyote’s croon or the high whinny of the screech owl – animals out foraging for food and stalking their prey. Our Blue Ridge backyard is an ecosystem for a wide variety of nocturnal mammals, birds, and insects. The night life is a dynamic world in constant flux: migrating coyote populations are replacing the red wolf; bats are dying from a mysterious disease; and more mountain lion sightings suggest that large cats may still roam the mountains.“Most mammals originated as nocturnal creatures, mainly to stay out of way of dinosaurs and reptiles,” says Doug Shedd, professor of biology at Randolph College. “Mammal species diversity exploded after the extinction of dinosaurs. But as a group, mammals still have a large number of nocturnal species. They rely on hearing and sense of smell rather than vision.”Mammals such as skunks, foxes, coyotes and opossums, through evolution, have adapted a nocturnal nature, which is reflected in their senses, behaviors, and hunting strategies.One of the most complex qualities nocturnal animals has is night vision. “Most mammals don’t see colors well. Most mammals don’t have good color vision or any at all. And that’s really the result of them using them for nocturnal situations,” Shedd says.Nocturnal animals rely on rod cells, which are useful for seeing after dark, whereas cone cells—color vision—needs light and is only useful during the day. This is why humans lose much of their color vision after dark, because they rely on rod vision. Owls rely on rod vision to see well at night, allowing them to not need much light to hunt for their prey. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
The county received eight bids for the project, with the highest at about $1.6 million. The county had estimated the project to cost $900,000 to $1 million.The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will reimburse the county 80 percent of the cost, or about $705,342, with the county and Atlantic Highlands splitting the remaining 20 percent, or about $88,168 each.The trail has remained open, but in what the Park System has described as a “primitive condition” of compacted soil. During the re-construction, that portion of the trail is to be closed.The Henry Hudson Trail runs for about 28 miles, using a combination of roads and unused railroad right-of-ways between Sandy Hook and Freehold. From Sandy Hook to Aberdeen, the trail also is known as the Bayshore Trail. By Joseph SapiaAN OCEAN COUNTY company has won a contract to restore an Atlantic Highlands section of the Henry Hudson Trail destroyed in 2012’s Super Storm Sandy.The Monmouth County Board of Recreation Commissioners recently awarded the contract to the low-bidder, Compass Construction of Plumsted. Compass bid $881,677.In October 2012, Sandy’s 14-foot surge destroyed the wooden walkway and trail surfacing, along with the bluff, on a 1-1/4-mile section of the trail from the Atlantic Highlands Municipal Harbor to Popamora Point on the Atlantic Highlands-Highlands boundary. The restoration work will include diverting runoff to Sandy Hook Bay under the trail to protect against erosion, resurfacing the trail with both pavement and stone dust, and rebuilding the walkway with prefabricated concrete.The work is to be completed in 100 days, but the actual start date, expected to be in September or October, has yet to be determined, said Joseph Sardonia, supervising landscape architect for the Monmouth County Park System.
By Jay Cook |Gov. Phil Murphy has said he wants to legalize marijuana within 100 days of entering office. Now that he’s been inaugurated, some local governing bodies are feeling the need to take a stance of their own.Monmouth County is the first county in the state to take an official position on the controversial subject. Last week, the all-Republican Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders passed a resolution citing their unanimous opposition to the legalization of recreational marijuana inside the county’s 469 square miles.“It’s just where we personally stand on it,” said Freeholder Patrick Impreveduto, the former mayor of Holmdel who was recently elected to the board. “I’ve been opposed to recreational marijuana use my whole life.”The resolution, which was distributed to all 53 towns, details many of the board’s concerns. Among those are the amount of increased traffic deaths in Colorado since legalization began there in 2014, the inability for law enforcement to determine if a motorist is under the influence compared to testing for alcohol in someone’s system and a report detailing how prevalent dispensaries are in Colorado, which noted there are more medicinal marijuana centers than Starbucks coffee shops and more recreational marijuana outlets than McDonald’s restaurants in that state.Impreveduto, who has worked in the education industry for over 40 years, said he’s seen firsthand the progression from marijuana usage to harder substances like alcohol and cocaine. He did emphasize that the freeholders are not against medicinal marijuana.“We’re asking the local towns to pass the same resolution and tell the state legislators and the governor that this is not something that’s wanted, not only in Monmouth County, but in other parts of the state,” Impreveduto said.Statements from local governing bodies regarding the drug have started trickling out of government meeting rooms in the Two River area. In October, Shrewsbury Borough passed an ordinance prohibiting businesses “engaged in the cultivation and/or distribution of medical marijuana,” along with other types of cannabis paraphernalia.Red Bank Mayor Pasquale Menna, a Democrat, said the discussion about what to do with marijuana dispensaries has already started in the borough.He said Red Bank will look to adopt a law prohibiting “certain types of headshops and or similar institutions” from opening up “except in extraordinarily limited designated areas.”That could happen as early as the next borough council meeting slated for Feb. 14. He said there would be discussions with the in-house planners to see where in Red Bank a recreational or medicinal cannabis dispensary could be allowed. But the options would be slim, he said. Menna doesn’t want to see those establishments near churches, schools, parks, in the downtown or in residential areas.“If the state goes ahead with a legalization, I’m not necessarily sure it can be prohibited everywhere, if the legislature and the governor approve it,” Menna said. “So, then the question is, can you regulate it?”Red Bank’s neighbors, Republican-led towns like Rumson and Fair Haven, are looking to craft their own local laws to prohibit any cannabis-related business from opening in town.Fair Haven councilman Robert Marchese brought the issue up at a public workshop meeting on Jan. 22. The goal is to ultimately change zoning laws in town to prohibit smoke shops and cannabis dispensaries in the small riverside borough.“You’re talking about banning something that’s already illegal,” Marchese admitted. “But everyone’s forgetting in this debate that marijuana is illegal pursuant to federal statue.”He said a change to local zoning law has approval from Mayor Benjamin Lucarelli and could be passed soon. The borough is considering passing a similar resolution to the one from the freeholder board.“It would not fit into the aesthetic of Fair Haven,” Marchese said. “I’m drawing the analogy of a high-end cigar/smoke shop in Manhattan.”Marchese also said the actions proposed for Fair Haven would not prohibit the use of medicinal marijuana.Rumson Mayor John Ekdahl echoed those sentiments, saying his town could look to institute the law similarly passed in Shrewsbury. The main driving force, he said, is the negative impact it could have on the student body.“We don’t have to talk too much more about the opioid crisis in New Jersey; we know it too well,” Ekdahl said. “Anything we can do to sort of chip in and help New Jersey with this crisis and protect our local schoolchildren, we really have to seriously consider doing it.”But some in the pro-cannabis industry say these discussions are premature. Scott Rudder, president of the New Jersey CannaBusiness Association based in Trenton, said towns should be careful before passing any legislation.Rudder, a former Republican mayor and state assemblyman, said he appreciates the concerns from local lawmakers, but he’s “done the research, seen the science and talked to the officials and I know factually that cannabis is significantly healthier for you than anything you’d find in a liquor store or certainly healthier for you than lots of things you would find in a pharmacy.”New Jersey’s cannabis industry has the potential to generate significant revenue, Rudder said. His organization projects after one full year of legalization, the cannabis industry could be a $2 billion to $3 billion market, generate $300 million to $500 million in tax revenue and create 50,000 to 75,000 jobs directly.The New Jersey CannaBusiness Association is hosting an educational seminar for local elected officials on Feb. 20 in Trenton where medical professionals, law enforcement and public policy professionals will talk about the benefits of legalized cannabis. He hopes it can begin to change some perspectives.“This is not a partisan issue,” Rudder added. “It’s really going to come down to education.”This article was first published in the Feb. 1-8, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.Correction, Feb. 12: The online version of this article has been corrected to reflect Fair Haven councilman Robert Marchese’s statement about Fair Haven’s policy about medical marijuana. The borough would not prohibit the sale or use of medical marijuana.
“It was just overwhelming,” said Kathleen Doty, Woman’s Club of Little Silver president. “They were just over-the-top appreciative.” By Amy Byrnes “It’s very heartwarming for us to see these ladies come in and find something and feel beautiful and validated, like they matter in this military life,” said Berridge. “It’s just been a joy seeing those smiling faces.” The effort was so successful and well-received that the group is again collecting gently worn gowns and cocktail dresses and the attendant accessories. Donations can be dropped off at 107 Woodbine Ave. in Little Silver or pickups can be arranged by calling 732-320-6652. Members of the Woman’s Club were recognized in October for their work by the spouses’ club at the Little Silver clubhouse on Church Street where they were given a plaque thanking them for their efforts and referring to them as “fairy godmothers.” Military spouses lined up to get into Cinderella’s Closet at its grand opening, including this woman trying on one of the many gowns donated by the Woman’s Club of Little Silver. From left, Fran Katzenberger, Woman’s Club of Little Silver; Lucrecia Berridge, president of JBMDL Spouses’ Club; Brandi Struggic, JBMDLSC; and Kathy Doty, president of the Woman’s Club of Little Silver. At the grand opening, Lucrecia Berridge, president of the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst Spouses’ Club, left, and Fran Katzenberger from the Woman’s Club of Little Silver, showed off one of the over 700 dresses and accessories the women’s club collected for the Spouses’ Club’s new evening wear shop on base. Berridge explained that it’s not just spouses and active duty members borrowing dresses; daughters have taken advantage of the new store for homecoming dances and she anticipates many will be looking for prom dresses there as well. “We’ve got people looking for dresses to wear for family pictures and weddings and even fancy dinners,” she said. “Just to help anybody inthe military is a pleasure,”Doty said. Similar to the popular website Rent the Runway, spouses can borrow a dress for $20 and accessories for $5; unlike Rent the Runway, customers who shop at Cinderella’s Closet get their deposit back when the items are cleaned and returned. Doty, who’s been a member of the Women’s Club for over 40 years, said when the doors of the new store opened, a line of shoppers was waiting to get in and start trying on dresses. “Women, especially the enlisted ranks, don’t have the expendable income to go buy a new dress every single time they have an event, like a graduation or formal,” said Lucrecia Berridge, president of the JB-MDL Spouses’ Club who helped spearhead the new shop. She explained that military life can mean three or four formals each year that, unlike in civilian life, are not optional. Getting dressed up can be expensive, she added, especially when supporting a family on a military salary. They struck upon the idea of clearing out an unused clubhouse the spouses’ club had been utilizing for storage space. Over the course of about a month, volunteers from various ranks and branches came together to sweep away the cobwebs and clear out the boxes to transform the space into the new evening wear shop. “It turned from a storage space to a store,” said Berridge, whose husband is a lieutenant colonel in the Air Force and has been stationed at JBMDL for three years. She contacted JBMDL to see if there was an interest and then set about reaching out to the community for donations over the course of about seven months. Berridge said that initially the spouses’ club anticipated receiving about 50-70 pieces from the dress drive. When the club heard back from Doty a few months after her initial call to say that they’d amassed about 700 items, club members realized they were going to need a bigger boat, so to speak. An existing thrift store would not be able to accommodate all those dresses. Doty had gotten the idea to collect gently worn evening wear and accessories for military spouses after reading about the Monmouth County organization Cinderella’s Closet, which provides prom dresses to underprivileged high school students. After working on a project raising funds for wounded veterans, it occurred to Doty that women of the military would benefit from a similar program. This article originally appeared in the Dec. 19, 2019 edition of the The Two River Times. Cinderella had a fairy godmother conjure her gown and those famous glass slippers for the ball, but the spouses of military personnel stationed at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst had members from the Little Silver Women’s Club swoop in and perform some magic of their own this fall. The group collected over 700 pieces of formal evening wear, purses, shoes and costume jewelry for a store run by the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (JBMDL) Spouses’ Club which opened in September. Dubbed “Cinderella’s Closet,” the not-for-profit outlet is open to all active duty military and their dependents. The Little Silver Woman’s Club is a member of the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs, the largest volunteer women’s service organization in the state, and will celebrate its 100th anniversary next year. While membership has dwindled from a couple hundred women to about 10, they are busy spearheading different volunteer efforts. Look for them at the Little Silver Train Station in January selling 50-50 raffle tickets to raise money to provide disabled veterans with canine companions to assist with daily tasks and increase their independence.
TWO brothers whose property empire they built from scratch collapsed during the economic crash have won a second landmark case against the Ulster Bank.Farmer’s sons Michael (pictured) and John Taggart once ran a business empire worth €600M and employed more than 100 people here in Co Donegal.Ulster Bank claims the Taggarts owe them £5M and €4.3M in personal guarantees and have been involved in a protracted legal battle to get the monies. The Taggarts have counter-sued the banks, claiming in essence that Ulster Bank brought an end to their empire – and the loss of 500 jobs – without proper cause.The Ulster Bank had vigorously opposed the Taggarts bid to have three cases heard together, arguing that such a ruling would be detrimental to the commercial life of Northern Ireland.But today Mr Justice McCloskey ruled that the cases, which had many common themes, should be heard together – ruling in favour of the Taggart brothers.The bank had previously won a summary judgement which would have forced the Taggarts to hand over €4.3M in personal guarantees allegedly linked to a Dublin land deal. But last July at the High Court in Belfast Mr Justice Bernard McCloskey set both judgements aside and ordered a full new hearing into the cases.In his judgement Mr Justice McCloskey noted that the Taggart brothers had been described in Sunday Independent in 2006 as “the richest people in the country.”He also noted that the Taggarts had contended during the hearing “that there is, as a minimum, a possible unexplained shortfall of some Stg£18M in repayments allegedly made by the Taggarts to the Plaintiffs (Ulster Bank) – some Stg£39M versus around Stg£21M.”In his ruling today Mr Justice McCloskey said: “I have formed the clear view that the joinder of all three actions is likely to save time and costs; will avoid duplication of effort and energies; will secure from the Court a single adjudication of all of the issues belonging to the dispute among the parties; will ensure that no party gains a litigation advantage to the possible detriment of the other; will preserve as level a playing field as possible; and will provide an equal measure of fairness to all parties.”The Taggarts began their property empire as teenagers on building sites in London before moving back to Drumsurn, Co Derry, where they oversaw property developments throughout Ireland. The brothers’ property empire went into administration in 2008, a year after the contended personal guarantees were allegedly signed.The court will reconvene on April 29 to decide on dates for a three-week trial – with May 7 or June 3 possible start dates.BEAT THE BANKER?

22 January 2010Argentinean national coach and former football star Diego Maradona has expressed his satisfaction with South Africa’s preparations for the 2010 Fifa World Cup, while dismissing security concerns and encouraging fans to come to the tournament.He was in the country to mainly to inspect the University of Pretoria’s High Performance Centre, where the Argentinean football team will be based.“They can say what they want, but we know we are coming to play the World Cup in a safe country,” said Maradona, speaking at Safa House in Johannesburg on Thursday. “I have seen that with my own eyes. Anything can happen in the world, but I have spent a week in South Africa and everything is very good and the people very friendly.“This will be a great World Cup with no doubts of security,” Maradona said. “I will tell my players that they only have to think of playing football when they come here and worry about nothing else.“I think that it is only fair for South Africa to host the World Cup because they have deserved it for a very long time,” the former Footballer of the Year and World Cup winner said.Special players, beautiful stadiumsOn Thursday, Maradona met 2010 Local Organising Committee (LOC) chief executive Danny Jordaan, SA Football Association president Kirsten Nematandani and CEO Leslie Sedibe, as well as senior LOC management.Jordaan said he felt there were many similarities between the 1986 Fifa World Cup winning team in which Maradona played and the one he is currently coaching.“I told the coach that in 1986 when Argentina left for the World Cup the people of Argentina did not think that team would bring back the cup. But that team had a special player and in the end they won the World Cup.“This year your team also has a very special player. They may not be among the favourites to win the World Cup this year but I think your team is going to surprise many people,” Jordaan said.Maradona and Jordaan exchanged signed national jerseys on the pitch at Soccer City.“They really did a great job on this stadium,” said Maradona of Soccer City which will host both the opening and closing games of the World Cup. “I have been to many stadiums before, but this is very big and so great. To be able to enter this stadium is so beautiful.“I feel inspired to play here but unfortunately my time has passed.”Source: BuaNews
According to a recent study conducted by dating website OKCupid, “Black women are sweethearts… white men are sh*tty,” and white people in general are a horrible bunch of xenophobes.The company recently ran some numbers on response rates for messages sent between almost a million otherwise compatible men and women of varying races, and the results are eye-opening. “Whenever we compare the match/reply charts for a given breakdown of the population, they should look about the same,” the related blog post reads. “However, this, like so many other fine assumptions, totally breaks down when race gets involved.”In general, the greater a pair’s compatibility according to OKCupid’s mysterious matching system, the greater the likelihood that a sent message will receive a reply. As a control group, the folks at OKCupid examined reply rates based on zodiac signs. They predicted a 60% match rate among all zodiac signs, and there was relatively little variation between the response rates, which ran in the 30% range and pretty much match up with the line graph above: 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting However, when looking at profiles with a similar degree of compatibility – right around 60% – the reply rates varied wildly based on gender and, interestingly, race: A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#Digital Lifestyle#web It probably comes as no surprise to the seasoned Internet user that, in general, the ladies have a better chance of getting a reply to a sent message (sorry, fellas!), but looking at the exact breakdown of replies is a disheartening commentary on interracial dating.Here’s a table showing response rates for male senders of varying ethnicities: The data show that black women reply “about a quarter more often” than women of other races, that white men get more responses, and, to quote from the post, “White women prefer white men to the exclusion of everyone else–and Asian and Hispanic women prefer them even more exclusively. These three types of women only respond well to white men. More significantly, these groups’ reply rates to non-whites is terrible.”Next, let’s take a look at what happens when the sender is a woman: Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… And now we see why white men are today’s punching bag – at least on the OKCupid blog. They respond less than any other group, and they respond least of all to black women. And speaking of black women, who we saw in the last table responded more than other groups: These ladies are receiving fewer responses than their peers of other races.Finally, take a look at this chart looking at users’ responses to the question, “Would you prefer to date someone of your own skin color/racial background?” Ouch! White men and women do not come off particularly well, especially considering the relative open-mindedness of their peers. And sadder still, according to OKCupid’s internal metrics, their users are younger, better educated, and more progressive than users on other sites. Truly, the mind reels.Without making any assumptions, we would also love to see how the data look for same-sex pairs of varying races. Is there something about GLBT culture that might make queer folks less racist than our straight counterparts?Moreover, we wonder if the study was conducted based on data from U.S. users only, or whether international users’ messages and replies were examined, as well.What do you think this research signifies, RWW reader? Are there other, unseen factors at play, or do you think the data stand as a sad commentary on unjustifiable race-based phobias inherent in a hegemonic culture? Let us know your thoughts in the comments. jolie odell
