What has been missing is the political will to prioritise families in working class areas of our city,” Cllr Costelloe commented.Also speaking at the campaign launch, Cllr Malachy McCreesh stressed the need for the Council to show more ambition with regard to the provision of housing.“The council needs to be much more ambitious, including with regard to leveraging funds from the European Investment Bank. They have shown they can do this for the needs of private business, now we need to see the same determination to build houses for our people,” he said.

Deadly Northern California wildfire nearly doubles in size overnight

first_imgJustin Sullivan/Getty Images(SHASTA COUNTY, Calif.) — A fast-moving wildfire in Northern California that has killed two people almost doubled in size overnight, officials said Saturday.The Carr Fire in Shasta County had burned an area of more than 80,000 acres by Saturday morning, with a containment of still just 5 percent. The magnitude of the blaze jumped from around 48,000 acres Friday night, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.Firefighters worked “aggressively” throughout the night to try to contain the flames, officials said, but the fire has been “active in all directions and has made significant runs.” Gusty winds, high temperatures and dry vegetation still have the potential to spur fire growth.The “mechanical failure of a vehicle” ignited the Carr Fire in Whiskeytown on Monday, officials said. The flames ripped through northwest Shasta County then spread southeast, sweeping across the Sacramento River late Thursday and roaring toward the city limits of Redding, which is home to 92,000.The blaze has claimed the lives of a bulldozer operator and a city of Redding firefighter, according to officials from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, the U.S. National Park Service and the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office. At least three firefighters have sustained injuries.A total of 3,410 personnel are working to contain the fire, along with 328 fire engines, 17 helicopters and 62 bulldozers.Officials have ordered road closures and the evacuation of thousands of homes threatened by the Carr Fire. The California Highway Patrol is going door to door to assist, officials have told reporters.At least 500 homes, businesses and other structures have been destroyed by the raging blaze, while 75 others have been damaged. Nearly 5,000 other structures remain threatened, officials said.Scott McLean, a spokesman for the crews battling the Carr Fire, told reporters that winds reaching 60 mph were fanning the flames and creating fire tornadoes, or “firenadoes,” that move erratically and are strong enough to overturn vehicles “like toys.”Local journalist Tamara Damante was co-anchoring live coverage of the Carr Fire when she and her colleagues were forced to evacuate ABC affiliate KRCR’s station in Redding. Damante said the “quickness” and “volatility” of the blaze was unlike anything she had ever seen before.“As this fire was just exploding, it’s just been inching closer and closer and closer to the station to the point where there was a neighborhood up in flames just about a mile away from the station, just across from the Sacramento River,” Damante said during an interview on “Good Morning America” early Friday. “I’ve never seen anything like it.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Biogeochemical fluxes through microzooplankton

first_img[1] Microzooplankton ingest a significant fraction of primary production in the ocean and thus remineralize nutrients and stimulate regenerated primary production. We synthesized observations on microzooplankton carbon-specific grazing rate, partitioning of grazed material, respiration rate, microzooplankton biomass, microzooplankton-mediated phytoplankton mortality rate, and phytoplankton growth rate. We used these observations to parameterize and evaluate the microzooplankton compartment in a global biogeochemical model that represents five plankton functional types. Microzooplankton biomasses predicted in this simulation are closer to the independently derived evaluation data than in the previous model version. Most rates, including primary production, microzooplankton grazing, and export of sinking detritus are within observational constraints. However, the model underestimates microzooplankton and mesozooplankton biomasses and chlorophyll concentrations. Thus, we propose that sufficient carbon enters the model ecosystem, but insufficient carbon is retained. For microzooplankton, the low retention of carbon could be improved by parameterizing the model with ciliate gross growth efficiency only, indicating that ciliates may contribute more to microzooplankton activity than their biomass contribution suggests. By taking into account the model underestimation of biomass, we estimate that the ocean inventory of microzooplankton biomass is 0.24 Pg C (a range of 0.14-0.33 Pg C), which is similar to the biomass of mesozooplankton.last_img read more

Seasonal and spatial influences on gene expression in Antarctic krill Euphausia superba

first_imgThe high latitudes inhabited by Antarctic krill Euphausia superba Dana are characterised by extreme changes in seasonal conditions, with very low food availability, long periods of darkness and a massive expansion of sea ice in autumn and winter. How krill adapt to these conditionshas yet to be determined, and it was the purpose of this study to gain more insight by investigating the differences between summer and winter krill populations at the molecular level. To achieve this, we used a cDNA microarray to compare gene expression between female adult krillcaught during summer and winter near the Antarctic Peninsula (60° S), and between Peninsula krill and krill caught near South Georgia (54° S) during the same winter. The Peninsula seasonal comparison showed up-regulation in summer krill of genes involved in feeding and digestion, respiration, motor activity and immunity. Summer krill also showed evidence of increased vitellogenesis, with an insulin-related peptide up-regulated and neuroparsin down-regulated. The comparison between the different overwintering locations showed an up-regulation in the SouthGeorgia krill of genes involved in feeding and digestion, and immunity. There was, however, no differential expression of genes involved in respiration, motor activity or vitellogenesis, suggesting that despite the above differences, both populations of overwintering krill were in a quiescent state. This study shows how krill physiology changes seasonally at the molecular level and howthese changes are flexible according to the overwintering environment.last_img read more
