Food web dynamics in the Scotia Sea in summer: A stable isotope study

first_imgThe pelagic food web of the Scotia Sea was studied by analysing natural abundances of nitrogen and carbon stable isotopes of primary producers and pelagic consumers, sampled from the seasonal ice edge in the south to the Antarctic Polar Front in the north. The analysis covered, within a single mid-summer period, particulate organic matter (POM) and 38 taxa, ranging from suspension feeding copepods and salps to omnivorous euphausiids, pelagic fish and higher, land-based predators including fur seals, penguins and flying birds. Spatial variation in δ15N of POM correlated well with nutrient availability and primary productivity. Latitudinal differences in δ13C of POM were closely linked to variations in temperature, nutrients and productivity depending on the frontal region sampled. This translated to equivalent (although smaller) regional δ13C differences among higher trophic levels. The trophic positions of species based on isotope values broadly agreed with previously published dietary data with three important exceptions. First, the carnivorous amphipod Themisto gaudichaudii had anomalously low δ15N values. Second, Euphausia superba had δ15N values that were also surprisingly low, considering the abundant literature suggesting its omnivory. Third, the copepod Rhincalanus gigas, considered a suspension feeder, had unexpectedly high δ15N values rather more in keeping with omnivorous feeding. The consumer δ15N values ranged from 1.2‰ (min.) measured in Salpa thompsoni (designated here as trophic level (TL) 2 across all regions) to 15.2‰ (max.) measured in white-chinned petrels (Procellaria aequinoctialis, calculated as TL5 relative to the TL2 of salps). Excluding seabirds, the resulting food chain length of 3.7 TL (above POM at TL1) was lower than in most other Southern Ocean and temperate marine pelagic ecosystems. The majority (60%) of vertebrate predators occupied only 1–1.5 trophic levels above the herbivorous suspension feeders such as krill. This indicates the existence of the classic short food chain of POM–suspension feeder–vertebrate predator. However the presence of trophic levels 4 and above indicates the existence of alternative trophic pathways, for example involving myctophid fish or carrion, and that some wide-ranging predators which breed at South Georgia also feed outside the region. This conclusion is supported first by the continuum of δ15N values between krill, suspension feeding copepods and myctophid fish, and secondly by higher trophic levels in several of the myctophid species in the low-krill region of the northern Scotia Sea, suggesting latitudinal differences in food web structure and food chain length.last_img read more

Rigid office hours and branches are NOT the future of estate agency

first_imgHome » News » Agencies & People » Rigid office hours and branches are NOT the future of estate agency previous nextAgencies & PeopleRigid office hours and branches are NOT the future of estate agencyTwo high street agents who recently started up a hybrid agency have also claimed that vendors and landlords’ busy lives mean the traditional model is obsolete.Nigel Lewis9th October 20192 Comments2,947 Views Two former John D Wood employees who set up a hybrid estate agency specialising in prime London property have claimed that high street branches are ‘dead’ and that the industry will eventually have to embrace more flexible working patterns.Rollo Miles and Bob Crowley (pictured, above) co-founded Agent & Homes last year and in January said the Notting Hill based business was growing quickly and had 18 staff.They now claim that London vendors, buyers, landlords and tenants lead such busy and time-pressured lives that most are only available during the evenings or weekends.“It therefore makes logical sense for agents to make themselves available at these times, rather than being chained to rigid traditional office hours,” says Crowley.Consequently the traditional estate agency branch and it’s 8.30am to 6.30pm hours is no longer relevant to many potential clients, he claims.“We believe there is no point in agents sitting around in dead high street offices all day when they could be providing a more pro-active, hands-on, efficient service at the times that suit their clients.”More motivatedFellow co-founder Rollo Miles says this approach also has benefits for estate agency employees because allowing staff to work more autonomously and to their own targets makes them more motivated.“These days, it’s increasingly recognised that it’s important for people to have a good work/life balance with the opportunity to take holidays and time off,” he says.“In order to remain profitable and meet the changing needs of modern consumers, agents need to embrace the flexible working structures adopted by many other sectors.“Providing a professional and expert service which isn’t constrained by a high street office or traditional working hours really is the future of estate agency in this country.”  John D Wood Rollo Miles agent & homes Bob Crowley October 9, 2019Nigel Lewis2 commentsSam Samuel, Edward Ashdale Edward Ashdale 9th October 2019 at 10:03 amI suppose it differs from area to area. Central London is a very different market.In the suburb of London we have found that people are viewing properties during working hours in the week, taking time out from work to secure that property if they are serious. Saturdays viewing demand is usually into the morning because it would seem people want to balance their own work and personal life commitments.Agree it’s important to offer flexible working hours to accommodate the modern demands of a buyer or tenant and your team, but if you have a lettings and property management department those services are carried out during the day. There is a lot of administration necessary and liaison with other companies can only be done during office hours. Certainly my sales team are not sitting around doing nothing between usual office hours. Solicitor firms do not work outside of office hours.As the time passes most certainly a flexible approach to staff hours and the needs of the customer need to be met, but businesses that provide a range of services, not just residential sales will be the reason why a branch will always be necessary.Log in to ReplyAndrew Stanton, CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist 9th October 2019 at 7:13 amThe way people work is changing in all industries and professions, and the explosion of Proptech is certainly changing the role of estate agents.But, from my experience having clients outside the London bubble, many of them ‘traditional’ style agencies who return profits of £400,000 per office year after year, this outcome always seems to be based on a solid team of property professionals with 10 or more years experience, working a 8.30 to 6.0 pm working pattern.The ‘dead time’ – which I assume Rollo and Bob allude to is the non-reactive time when there are no viewers or tenants around to physically service, but, standout agents I have found use the ‘dead time’ to be pro-active, develop their marketing strategy and push forward the fortunes of their agency.With clients able to access their ‘agent’ 24-7 via numerous avenues of contact, in some ways agents are far more accessible and so have a need to be more attentive than back when I started, when you put the office answer phone on and came in the next day to deal with things, now at the ping of a button.We are all super connected, and if making substantial profit is your aim, then utilising the ‘dead time’ should perhaps be the focus point, which of course negates the concept of putting your feet up and enjoying more time off.If anything with the rise of the millennials – to stay ahead of the pack – more customer contact is the new watchword, involving more hours at the office – be it the office in the high street, in your car, or the coffee shop, or the hotel foyer, or the study or the bedroom that you trade out of.Only 4% of clients may be walking into offices, but 100% of them want service and unfortunately from my experience they can connect at any time, not just from 4pm onwards and at week ends.Thoughts anyone?Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?

The band packed their two sets with so many classic tunes, opening with “Therapy” before veering into “Abraxas,” then back into “Astronaut” and returning into “Therapy.” It was “Save the Robots” that closed out the first set, packing four songs into a full jammed out set of music.The second set only brought more classics, with the opening “Rainbow Song” and a “Confrontation” sandwich that featured “Spacebirdmatingcall” and “I-Man” segued in the middle. They ended the second set with a blistering “M.E.M.P.H.I.S.,” and finished out the show with an encore performance of “Once The Fiddler Paid.”Fortunately, as the show was broadcast by Uphoric TV, we have full video of the Biscuits’ performance at Irving Plaza.

SolGen asks Supreme Court to revoke ABS-CBN franchise

first_img The ABS-CBN, in a statement, branded Calida’s petition as “an effort to shut down the network” as they hope that their franchise will be allowed to go through the proper renewal process in a fair manner. A quo warranto petition is a special writ or legal action which would compel a person or entity to show by what warrant an office or franchise was held, claimed and exercised. MANILA – The Office of Solicitor General filed a quo warranto petition before the Supreme Court (SC) seeking to void the legislative franchise of giant broadcast network ABS-CBN. Solicitor General Jose Calida files a quo warranto petition against ABS-CBN and its subsidiary ABS-CBN Convergence at the Supreme Court on Monday. ABS-CBN NEWS President Duterte has repeatedly threatened to block the franchise renewal of ABS CBN when it expires at the end of March. He even suggested to the Lopezes to just sell the network. The ownership of ABS-CBN in ABS-CBN Convergence was undertaken under the same law and structures that have been utilized by other telecommunications companies. These are transfers that are approved under the Public Telecommunications Policy Act and are fully compliant with law. Calida also pointed out that the network issued Philippine Deposit Receipts through ABS-CBN Holdings Corporation to foreigners, which is also a violation of the Constitution. The SolGen added that ABS-CBN has been hiding behind an “elaborately crafted corporate veil” as foreign investors take part in the ownership of the network which is in violation of the foreign interest restriction of mass media under the 1987 Constitution. HANDS OFF Malacañang, meanwhile, said that Calida’s quo warranto petition has nothing to do with President Rodrigo Duterte’s previous public pronouncement against the network. PROPER RENEWAL “This simply means that mass media companies operating in the Philippines must be 100 percent Filipino owned because they play an integral role in a nation’s economic, political, and socio-cultural landscape,” Calida said. “Ang Pangulo ay hindi nakikialam sa trabaho ng mga heads of the departments and offices. Palagi niyang sinasabi na let the law takes its course,” he added. The network added that all their broadcast offerings, including KBO, have received the necessary government and regulatory approvals and are not prohibited by their franchise. ABS-CBN Holdings’ Philippine Deposit Receipts or PDRs were evaluated and approved by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Philippine Stock Exchange prior to its public offering. “We reiterate that everything we do is in accordance with the law. We did not violate the law. This case appears to be an attempt to deprive Filipinos of the services of ABS-CBN,” the network said. He added that the franchise also abused its privilege when it launched Kapamilya Box Office pay-per-view channel in ABS-CBN TV plus without the approval of the National Telecommunication Council. “We want to put an end to what we discovered to be highly abusive practices of ABS-CBN benefitting a greedy few at the expense of millions of its loyal subscribers. These practices have gone unnoticed or were disregarded for years,” Calida said. Solicitor General Jose Calida said in a statement on Monday that the quo warranto petition was filed in order to stop the supposed “abusive practices” of the network. Under Section 11, Article XVI of the Constitution, the ownership and management of mass media shall be limited to citizens of the Philippines, or to corporations, cooperatives or associations, wholly-owned and managed by such citizens. “Alam mo, trabaho ng Solicitor General na maghain ng anumang petisyon pagka mayroon paglabag sa batas,” Presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo said in an interview with DZMM. “These allegations cited by the Office of the Solicitor General in his press statement are without merit. ABS-CBN complies with all pertinent laws governing its franchise and has secured all necessary government and regulatory approvals for its business operations,” it said. There are at least nine bills filed in the House of Representatives seeking the renewal of the network’s franchise but those measures were not yet being tackled by the House Committee on Legislative Franchises./PNlast_img read more
