Wind change pulls curtain back on a future Bering Sea

first_imgAleutians | Climate Change | Environment | Fisheries | Oceans | Science & Tech | WesternWind change pulls curtain back on a future Bering SeaFebruary 9, 2019 by Johanna Eurich, KYUK Share:Bering Sea coastline near Nome, October 2017. (Photo by Zoe Grueskin/KNOM.)For those who wonder what the Bering Sea will be like decades from now, last year may have been a glimpse of the future. It brought something many did not expect: the disappearance of the undersea “cold pool,” which is the nursery for Alaska’s pollock fishery.When it was discovered by oceanographers, the giant, cold pool of water at the bottom of the Bering Sea shelf off of Alaska was seen as a huge wall that would keep that sea cold, even as the rest of the North Pacific Ocean warmed up. The expectations were that it would remain a refuge for the region’s lucrative pollock fishery.The strongest advocate of that idea was Phyllis Stabeno, a physical oceanographer with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, or NOAA. Then the cold pool began to fluctuate. Two years ago, Stabeno changed her mind and predicted that it would disappear. The cold pool did get smaller, but no one expected it to disappear quickly. Then the south wind arrived.“As our colleague Nick Bond likes to say, ‘wind rules,’” says Tom Van Pelt, a scientist with the Joint Institute for the Study of the Atmosphere and Ocean at Washington University. “Everything does go back to the wind.”Van Pelt presented an analysis of the cold pool to the Alaska Marine Science Symposium for Phyllis Stabeno and her colleagues at NOAA, because they were prevented from attending by the government shutdown.2017 was a warm summer. The press was talking about a warm blob of water which headed north, leaving a trail of dead seabirds. Fall arrived, a time when the wind normally blows out of the north. That fall it came out of the south and stayed, pushing warm water northwards and keeping the ice from coming down and forming. Van Pelt says that the wind kept blowing from the south into the winter, its warm temperatures keeping ice from growing until deep into the season when the winds finally shifted.“Ice is beginning to form, but behind schedule and reduced. Winds out of the northeast, well they’re probably more typical. But air temperatures are much, much warmer than average, even above freezing at times. And this is in the depth of winter,” said Van Pelt.The winter of 2017-18 had the least ice that the region has seen in historic memory, and it wasn’t there very long. The south wind came again early last spring, diminishing the ice and pushing what was left of it into the north.“Stepping into February and March: ice is already retreating in February, winds continue out of the south, air temperature continues to be warmer than average,” said Van Pelt.Van Pelt says that the south wind also did something else: it pushed enough warm water into the region to mix with the formerly colder and saltier water at the bottom, making it less salty. Scientists noticed it last spring. After April, bottom temperatures begin to warm in parallel with solar warming.“That’s something you usually only see in the surface layer,” he said. “They just kept increasing, even getting past that 2-degree threshold, what we think of as the cold pool. So why is that? We think salinity has a lot to do with it.”The result last summer was a tiny, “micro” cold pool, and the pollock swam further north, looking for colder water. This fall and winter, the north wind and the ice returned. Most scientists expect the cold pool, along with the pollock, to be back on the Bering Sea shelf this summer. But the future will be more like last summer, with the south wind ruling.“There’s a prediction that winds out of the south will increase over this century,” says Van Pelt. “So winters like we experienced in the region last year are predicted to be more common.”Modelers say that it will take around 40 years to shift to that “new normal,” but they’ve been wrong before. The arctic is warming up faster than anyone predicted.Share this story:last_img read more

New lending leaves banks in the shade Tim Wallace whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL Shadow banking grew by $5 trillion (£3.1 trillion) last year to total $75 trillion of assets worldwide, as the alternative finance sector took over from banks as the main source of lending growth. By contrast the banking sector’s assets stayed flat, as the industry continued to deal with a legacy of bad loans and waves of regulations. The figures, from global watchdog the Financial Stability Board (FSB), could even be higher as many hedge funds are based offshore where officials have little access to data. The FSB welcomed the boost to lending from shadow banks, which include institutions like broker-dealers, money market funds and real estate investment trusts.  Its support came despite the International Monetary Fund’s attack on the sector this month as a possible source of risks to the financial system. “Shadow banking can be a boon for the financial system. In emerging market economies [it] broadens access to credit, because traditional banking networks often face capacity or regulatory constraints, such as restrictions on lending or deposit rates,” the FSB said. “In advanced markets, various types of funds have been stepping in to provide long-term credit to the private sector as banks have been lending less.” A key problem for the sector is one of naming, as the word “shadow” makes the industry seem shady. “The use of the term ‘shadow banking’ is not intended to cast a pejorative tone on this system of credit intermediation,” said the FSB’s report. The UK has the third largest shadow banking sector by assets, behind the US and Eurozone, which each have around $25 trillion. Britain’s shadow banks expanded by $300bn to total assets of $9.3 trillion. Shadow banking has grown both as some activities are pushed out of banks by regulators, and because investors’ search for returns in a low- rate environment have pushed them to invest in higher-risk areas. One area of growth is traders moving from banks into funds or boutiques – doing the same bond and derivatives trades, but in a shadow bank. This means traders are less regulated, but are also less dangerous to the wider financial system as they will not to bring down a bank if anything goes wrong. Similarly, trading activity adds valuable liquidity to markets, and needs to happen somewhere else if it cannot happen in banks. WHAT IS SHADOW BANKING?■ Bond and equity funds are the biggest shadow banks – they are intermediaries investing funds, but not banks.■ On some definitions, pension funds and insurers also count as they match investors with borrowers.■ They are typically less regulated than banks, but also less risky as they are not going to lose a retail bank’s money  whatsapp Thursday 30 October 2014 9:38 pm last_img read more

STAT reporters weigh in: What’s on the horizon for biopharma under Trump?

first_img STAT reporters look ahead on the home page to see what might unfold under the Trump administration. For STAT Plus subscribers, here’s what reporters covering biotech, pharma, and policy will be watching for:Will Trump be a friend or foe to drug advertisers?Direct-to-consumer drug advertising has been under siege in recent months. Critics have called for a three-year moratorium on advertising new drugs, an end to the tax breaks that drug makers can take to offset ad spending, and even an outright ban on the practice. There’s a sense among drug advertisers that they dodged the worst of a potential crackdown on their industry thanks to the Republican sweep in the November election — but Trump, as always, is a wildcard. At the big annual drug advertising conference last April, an industry lobbyist expressed reservations about whether Trump was truly an ally because, after all, “he is a dealmaker, and this is a dealmaker’s issue.” We’ll be watching closely to see how Trump approaches policymaking that affects drug advertisers — or if he just leaves them alone. If he takes them on, it will be yet another signal that Trump is rewriting what the industry thinks it can expect from a Republican.

She hails from Rosenallis and her interests vary from news, sports and politics. WhatsApp By Siun Lennon – 22nd September 2018 Community Brought to you in association with Fingleton White EngineeringSt Paul’s Portarlington 3-2 Ballinakill 1-5Under 13 Hurling B Championship FinalWhat a thriller this was. Last year’s winning U12 St Paul’s Portarlington side did it again for their club, bringing the coveted U13 ‘B’ title to McCann Park after two late goals from cousins Eoin and Luke McEvoy.Heartfelt credit must be given to St Paul’s and their set-up. It is great to see a traditionally footballing club reach both the U-11 and U13 ‘B’ finals this year.Ballinakill were first out of the blocks as Carlos Fitzpatrick parted the St Paul’s defence with a blistering solo run and shot to put to first point on the board.Jordan Downey replied for his St Paul’s side in the ninth minute, with a free the blasted off his hurl and into the back of the Ballinakill net.The Ballinakill full-back were immense in their defence, as dangerous balls from Downey continued to fall into the square. A young Hugo Emerson encapsulated his father’s strength in clearing his St Paul’s back line.St Paul’s man Jack Tracy made a huge impact when he came on, working tenaciously in the half-forward line for his side.A mighty stroke of a free from that man Carlos Fitzpatrick left just one between the sides after 19 minutes.  Fitzpatrick then added another long-range free, this time from the right-wing, to level the two teams, 0-3 to 1-0 a piece.An Andrew McDonagh clearance wasn’t enough to make St Paul’s retreat, and a Jordan Downey free gave his team a one-point advantage going in at half-time.Jamie Baldwin set the tone for Ballinakill in the opening minutes of the second half, as his long ball in was too powerful even as Conor Maher reached up to block it. The ball landed over the line and Ballinakill went two points ahead.Full credit must be given to Cahir Costigan, Andrew Kennedy, Will Healy and Andrew McDonagh for remaining unfazed by the powerful attacks launched from St Paul’s.However Carlos Fitzpatrick had his say, striking a free at the opposite end of the field a minute later to make it 1-4 for Ballinakill. Michael Fleming delivered three point-blank saves for Ballinakill to deny possible goal chances.A close range free by Jordan Downey closed the gap to two but a stunning strike from Ballinakill’s Ben O’Mara from the left-wing narrowed that gap 30 seconds later.After tireless efforts in the St Paul’s forward line, the fruits of their labour were received, as a blast from Eoin McEvoy into the back of the net drew the sides level in the final minute of the game. Luke McEvoy then drew a long-range strike to send the U13 ‘B’ title back to McCann Park.SCORERS – St Paul’s Portarlington: Eoin McEvoy 1-0, Luke McEvoy 1-0, Jordan Downey 1-3 (1-3 frees) Ballinakill: Jamie Baldwin 1-0, Carlos Fitzpatrick 0-4 (0-3 frees), Ben O’Mara 0-1BALLINAKILL: Michael Fleming; Cahir Costigan, Andrew Kennedy; Will Healy, Andrew McDonagh, James O’Mahony; Luke O’Rielly, Ben O’Mara; Darragh Cahill, Jamie Baldwin, Carlos Fitzpatrick; Vincent Kehoe, Ivan Dunne.

Falling oil price weighs on TSX

first_img TSX gets lift from financials, U.S. markets rise to highest since March A sharp drop in the price of oil weighed on Canada’s main stock index Monday as American markets were mixed following the U.S. Senate’s passage of a tax bill. The S&P/TSX composite index fell 69.94 points to 15,969.03, with the energy sector leading decliners. David Hodges Related news Keywords Marketwatch Facebook LinkedIn Twittercenter_img Share this article and your comments with peers on social media “When you compare the domestic market to what we’re seeing on a more global basis, it’s another example of much of what we’ve seen in 2017 so far…. The domestic market is being held back by the composition and the higher weight to natural resource sectors,” said Craig Fehr, a Canadian markets strategist at Edward Jones in St. Louis. “The drag from the oil today is kind of negating what we’re seeing as a rather positive day in other global markets.” The January crude contract tumbled US89¢ to US$57.47 per barrel. Fehr pegged falling oil prices to a retracement of some of the strong gains seen recently in the run-up to an OPEC meeting last week where members of the allied oil-producing nations, including non-members such as Russia, agreed to extend crude output cuts until the end of next year. “I think that’s being met, particularly today, with the expectation that we’re likely to continue to see production increases in other areas, particularly the United States,” he said. “And so I think that’s dampening some of the enthusiasm that pushed oil prices higher more recently.” Overseas, European markets rallied after the chief of the European Union said he was encouraged by last-minute progress in talks for the United Kingdom to leave the group. France’s CAC 40 jumped 1.4% and Germany’s DAX surged 1.5%. The FTSE 100 in London rose 0.5%. South of the border, U.S. stock indices struggled to hang onto gains Monday afternoon on expectations that lower taxes will help corporate profits pile up even higher. Congress moved closer to overhauling the U.S. tax system over the weekend, after the Senate narrowly approved its package of cuts. In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average advanced 58.46 points to 24,290.05, enough to push it further into record territory, but a far cry from its early morning gains which saw it trading more than 226 points higher. The S&P 500 index dipped 2.78 points to 2,639.44 after being positive earlier in the trading session. The Nasdaq composite index was down 72.22 points to 6,775.37. “It’s another tax-trade day and you’re seeing that show up in performance,” said Fehr. “And when you think about some of the sectors that probably benefit the most from this potential tax legislation, we’re seeing that show up in areas like financials and it’s coming at the expense of areas like technology.” In currency trading, the Canadian dollar closed at an average trading price of US78.77¢, up 0.21 of a U.S. cent. Elsewhere in commodities, the January natural gas contract was down US8¢ to US$2.99 per mmBTU, the February gold contract lost US$4.60 to US$1,277.70 an ounce and the March copper contract was unchanged at US$3.09 a pound.

MFDA proposes CE accreditation rules

first_img IAP to focus on SROs, taskforce in 2021 James Langton Stacked white books on rules and regulations stuartphoto/123RF Following an initial consultation, the MFDA is now proposing that it would not be recognized as an accreditor, but that the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) and the Chambre de la sécurité financière would be.MFDA members and other third parties could be recognized, too, subject to certain conditions set out in the proposals.Last year, regulators approved rules that establish CE requirements for dealers and reps, but those measures have yet to take effect.The MFDA had hoped to launch its CE program by the end of the year, but that timing is likely to be disrupted by the fallout from the Covid-19 outbreak, which has taken priority with the industry and regulators alike.The proposals are out for a 135-day comment period, which ends Aug. 10.Most rule proposals get 90-day comment periods, but regulators have extended policy comment periods by 45 days due to the pandemic.
