first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – As BC Wildfire Service crews continue their assault on the Beatton Airport Road Fire, they are warning the public that any unnecessary presence can hinder their operations.Speaking with Energeticcity.ca this morning, Ellie Dupont says that crews have had several issues with members of the public infringing on the fire suppression area. Fire suppression areas are denoted as a work environment by WorkSafe BC, and as such are usually blocked off to public access. Dupont says that the importance of maintaining control over the area will increase later this week.While the fire is currently zero percent contained, Dupont says that the fire still sits at 15,000 hectares in size, meaning no new growth has occurred in several days. Crews are anticipating that conditions will allow them to begin conducting controlled burn operations near the fire’s perimeter starting as early as Wednesday, which could result in more smoke plumes becoming visible in the surrounding area. These controlled burn operations also pose a great danger to any trespassers within the fire suppression area.- Advertisement -133 firefighters, 7 helicopters, 16 pieces of heavy equipment, and an 11-member Incident Management Team are currently involved in efforts against the wildfire.An evacuation alert enacted by the PRRD remains in place around the fire, information on that alert can be found at http://www.prrd.bc.ca/. Smoke forecasts from the fire can be found at http://firesmoke.ca/forecasts/viewer/run/ops/BSC18CA12/current/.last_img read more

I would go and collect him from the airport.”Retired Roma captain Francesco Totti, who has a position in Roma’s management, called Conte “one of the best coaches in Europe.”“Wherever he’s gone he’s won.

first_img Journal information: Physical Review Letters More information: Experimental and Theoretical Evidence for Pressure-Induced Metallization in FeO with Rocksalt-Type Structure, Phys. Rev. Lett. 108, 026403 (2012) DOI:10.1103/PhysRevLett.108.026403AbstractElectrical conductivity of FeO was measured up to 141 GPa and 2480 K in a laser-heated diamond-anvil cell. The results show that rock-salt (B1) type structured FeO metallizes at around 70 GPa and 1900 K without any structural phase transition. We computed fully self-consistently the electronic structure and the electrical conductivity of B1 FeO as a function of pressure and temperature, and found that although insulating as expected at ambient condition, B1 FeO metallizes at high temperatures, consistent with experiments. The observed metallization is related to spin crossover.via Physics Synopsis Explore further (PhysOrg.com) — Scientists studying the rotation of the Earth have long known that our planet doesn’t have a perfect spin. Most believe this is due to the different types of materials that make up the core, mantle and crust, which all have different rates of spin causing inherent friction. Most models researchers have developed however agree that in order for the planet to wobble the way it does, the mantle would have to respond to the magnetic tug of the core. The problem with this though, is that the mantle is made mostly of rock, not metal, which means it’s not supposed to be conductive. A new kind of metal in the deep Earth Citation: Part of Earth’s mantle shown to be conductive under high pressure and temperatures (2012, January 20) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-01-earth-mantle-shown-high-pressure.html © 2011 PhysOrg.com New research by a Kenji Ohta and his colleagues at Osaka University in Japan indicates they’ve found a possible explanation. As they describe in their paper published in Physical Review Letters, it appears that Wustite (FeO), believed to be one of the components that make up the Earth’s mantle, can be made to conduct electricity at high pressure and high temperatures.This new work by the team builds on findings from the 1980’s that showed that FeO becomes more conductive when exposed to shock waves. To find out if other conditions might cause the same outcome, the team placed a sample of FeO in a diamond anvil and heated it using a laser. As the experiment proceeded, they also measured the conductivity of the FeO sample.After heating the sample to 1600°C and applying 70 gigapascals of pressure, the team found the sample became as conductive as an average metal. They also noted it did so without any changes occurring to its structure.To find out if the same conductive properties would occur under more harsh conditions, comparable to those found inside the Earth, the team turned up the temperature to 2200°C while ratcheting up the pressure to 1.4 million atmospheres and found the same results. Such measurements suggest, the team theorizes, that the same conductive properties would likely hold under even more extreme conditions such as those found near the boundary between the mantle and the core.To better understand why FeO becomes conductive under high pressure and heat, the team did density and electrical conductivity tests as they relate to temperature and pressure and now believe that the metallization is related to spin crossover.

first_imgChildhood emotional experiences of individuals can have long lasting consequences in adulthood while they perform a task, a study revealed. In a the study published in the online journal, Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, the researchers stated that emotional bond shared with parents in early childhood generates our ability to regulate emotions as adults.“But not everyone’s actions are impacted by emotions to the same extent. Some of us had emotionally responsive caregivers or parents in childhood, while others didn’t,” said Christine Heinisch, researcher at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfAccording to the attachment theory in Psychology, childhood experiences influences the ability to regulate emotions as adults. “We expected those having problems with emotional regulation to make more errors in performing a task – and one significant variable influencing this is our attachment experience,” Heinisch added. To test this theory, they conducted a study on adults with different childhood experiences and performed a task of identifying a target letter from among a series of flashing letters.  Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThis task was administered under conditions that evoked a positive, neutral or negative emotional state. The researchers then assessed task performance and analysed electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings of brain function in their subjects.Subjects who did not have emotionally responsive caregivers in childhood (insecure-attached) had more trouble performing under emotionally negative conditions than the others (secure-attached). They also had lower brain activity in response to the target letter under negative conditions than secure-attached subjects. The lower task performance correlated with inefficient strategies for emotional regulation seen in insecure-attached adults. This could mean that a greater share of cognitive resources was allocated for regulating emotions, and consequently, less was available for performing the task.last_img read more

first_imgKolkata: An app-cab driver has been recently arrested for assaulting an autistic child inside the cab. Authorities of Uber, the app-based cab service, apologised for the incident and returned the fare amount. According to sources, Piyali Gupta’s six-year-old son is autistic. He studies in a school at Gariahat area. Everyday his grandmother Pratima takes him to his school. On Tuesday she booked an Uber ride to reach Gariahat.Pratima was handing over the fare to the driver, the child allegedly touched the air conditioner inside the car. The app-cab driver Chandreswar Rai allegedly threatened the child to beat him. As the child could not understand him properly, he again touched the air conditioner. This time, Rai in fit of rage twisted his arm. Seeing Rai assaulting her grandson, Pratima protested. Rai allegedly threatened her with dire consequences. He also told Pratima not to move around with an austistic child. Pratima informed Piyali who lodged a complaint with the Uber.
