The first observations are presented from Halley, Antarctica, of quasi-periodic (QP)_VLF intensity variations modulated at the frequency of concurrent Pc3 magnetic pulsations. Seen on broadband frequency-time plots, the QP emissions are of both the dispersive and non-dispersive types. From the frequency and phase variation with time of the QP emissions and magnetic pulsations, estimates are obtained of the travel times of the ULF waves from the interaction region to the ground. The observations appear consistent with the idea of modulation of a pre-existing VLF hiss source in the magnetosphere by the compressional components of ULF waves. A significant change in the travel time during one event is consistent with a crossing of the plasmapause by the Halley fieldline.
Varsity Archery Cambridge 3417 Oxford 3187 In ideal conditions on the backs of St. John’s College, Cambridge, Oxford University Company of Archers put on a strong performance on Saturday in the 55th Varsity match. After six successive defeats by a consistently tough Cambridge team, and having lost two of last year’s three half blues, Oxford were always the underdogs, but the addition of Lincoln first year Christopher Buckingham as well as comprehensive coaching from Ollie Holt meant competition would still be intense. Indeed, until the fourth dozen the teams were fairly evenly matched, but soaring scores from Cambridge’s James Keogh and Pamela Custance-Baker soon began to take their toll. Keogh’s score of 888 headed a Cambridge team in which all four archers achieved scores of over 800, all with fifty or more golds, and this left them with a team total of 3417, only a few points off the Varsity record. Oxford, however, could certainly not be accused of lack of endeavour. Chris Buckingham finished as third gentleman with 831, and Antje Frotscher and Catherine Roberts won second and third lady respectively. Their scores, combined with that of fourth team member Geoffrey Hyett, beat last year’s winning score but were still just too far off the pace. Oxford’s novices fared little better, trailing the Tabs by almost 800 points, despite a superb performance by Matthew Read, who finished ninth overall. Despite another loss, Oxford can thus be proud of their contribution to what is believed to be the highest combined score ever recorded at Varsity. The team’s intensive training in mental as well as physical stamina meant that everyone very much fulfilled their potential, and the magnitude of their score, beaten only by a remarkable Cambridge achievement, reflects their obvious improvements in both skill and morale. With similar improvements over the next year, eight consecutive defeats can be avoided.ARCHIVE: 3rd week TT 2004
The pianist and composer Holly Bowling has become a well-loved figure in the Phish community, gaining fame for her solo piano translations of Phish and Grateful Dead jams. The classically trained pianist has been captivating audiences across the country with her takes on these jam band giants in recent month, though Bowling made her way back to New York City at the end of July to start a residency at the Cutting Room, which coincided with Phish’s own historic residency at Madison Square Garden for their Baker’s Dozen run.Holly Bowling Performs Phish’s ‘Billy Breathes’ Album In Its Entirety [Full Video]After Bowling’s opening performance, which featured her famous arrangement of the “Tahoe Tweezer” from July 31st, 2013, the pianist returned to the Cutting Room the next day, on July 23rd, performing her own piano interpretation of Phish’s epic Gamehendge Suite—the now-mythic collection of songs from Trey Anastasio’s senior thesis, The Man Who Stepped Into Yesterday. Over the course of an hour and a half, Bowling worked her way through a majority of the songs off Anastasio’s early concept album as well as a number of songs not on The Man Who Stepped Into Yesterday but that still fall within the Gamehendge mythology, such as “McGrupp and the Watchful Horsemasters” and the encore of “Divided Sky”.Holly Bowling Debuts Phish’s “Miss You” In Honor Of A Lost Life [Audio]You can watch a video of Holly Bowling performing “Col.

ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading » As the government shutdown continues, a large percentage of people who work on national cybersecurity remain furloughed. This includes many Department of Homeland Security and National Institute of Standards and Technology resources that would normally be watching the bad guys. This gap in defensive monitoring is practically an invitation for cyber attackers to ramp up their efforts. Many of these efforts will come in the traditional form of phishing, or fake communications designed to trick a user.For example, after natural disasters or during times of great need, attackers are especially opportunistic, sending out phishing emails for spoofed or fabricated charities and stealing the money donated to the “cause.” Similarly, as credit unions have stepped up to address the need to help furloughed workers with member-friendly loans, this becomes a prime area where attackers can take advantage. Spoofing a credit union email, asking a member to log into a fake website or call a fake phone number, would be a simple and effective attack.Attackers may also target a credit union directly by impersonating members and taking advantage of the credit union’s generosity by opening accounts or applying for a loan under the guise of furlough assistance. Identity theft continues to be a major issue and attackers will utilize any method necessary to achieve their goals.
Fortunately, DiCaprio has always been a good sport about the jabs. He gave Fey a thumbs-up on stage and laughed into his hand from his seat in the audience after Gervais’ shout-out.The attention on the Titanic star’s love life began in 1994, when he was linked to model Bridget Hall. By the early 2000s, he became one of the most eligible bachelors in Tinseltown. He went on to date Gisele Bündchen, Bar Refaeli, Blake Lively, Toni Garrn and Nina Agdal, among others, before finally settling down with current girlfriend Camila Morrone, who is 23 years his junior.“There’s so many relationships in Hollywood — and in the history of the world — where people have large age gaps,” Morrone told the Los Angeles Times in 2019 when asked whether critics of her and DiCaprio’s relationship get under her skin. “I just think anyone should be able to date who they want to date.”- Advertisement – Leonardo DiCaprio is almost as well-known for his love life as his movies and activism. Since launching his acting career in the early 1990s, the heartthrob has had a string of high-profile relationships with Hollywood’s finest actresses and, perhaps more famously, younger models.The Oscar winner’s dating history has often made him a punching bag for fellow celebrities including Tina Fey and Ricky Gervais. While introducing him at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, the 30 Rock creator quipped, “And now, like a supermodel’s vagina, let’s all give a warm welcome to Leonardo DiCaprio.” Six years later, the Office alum joked at the same awards show, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is nearly three hours long. Leonardo DiCaprio attended the premiere, and by the end, his date was too old for him.”- Advertisement – The Great Gatsby star and the L.A.-born model started dating in 2017 and have been going strong ever since. A source exclusively told Us Weekly in 2020, “They’re always together but like maintaining privacy,” noting that the pair prefer to stay “off the grid” and are “not the type of couple to be posting on social media about each other.”Scroll down to see DiCaprio’s complete dating history! – Advertisement –

Palm Beach has emerged as the suburb to watch on the Gold Coast in 2017.PALM BEACH is officially on the real estate hot list, with the suburb set to take over from Mermaid Beach as the top Gold Coast market to watch.Industry insider Tod Gillespie, the director of property valuer Heron Todd White, tipped that Miami and Varsity Lakes would also be standout performers this year.“While the location of the Gold Coast Highway has been an issue to buyers in the past, the flood of new coffee shops and eateries has put Palmy on the map,” Mr Gillespie said. He predicted Palm Beach would become the “new Mermaid Beach”, soaring ahead of Miami and Varsity Lakes.“If you compare Miami to Palm Beach two years ago, prices were on par with each other — now the Palm Beach market is much stronger than Miami,” he said.CoreLogic data reveals both suburbs have experienced strong price growth in the past five years.The median house price for Palm Beach is up 38 per cent to $706,000 while Miami has soared 50 per cent to reach $719,000. REIQ Gold Coast chairman John Newlands said the Coast will benefit from the infrastructure surrounding the 2018 Commonwealth Game. Picture: Queensland TourismREIQ Gold Coast chairman John Newlands shared a similar market outlook.“I don’t see us having a boom situation, but we will still benefit from the infrastructure surrounding the 2018 Commonwealth Games,” Mr Newlands said.“Tourism has picked up, which creates jobs in the hospitality industry and going forward, the big projects create plenty of jobs — the third arm of the light rail and the major building projects.”Mr Newlands expected investors to tighten their belts when it came to off-the-plan purchases.“The banks will want to make sure you can afford it,” he said. “Obviously it won’t matter if you’re a good candidate and you have no problem with a deposit. “But the last thing we need is a boom-bust situation so I think that’s a good precaution.” Top 10 suburbs to watch Source: Heron Todd White director Tod Gillespie Palm Beach Varsity Lakes Miami Coolangatta Merrimac Carrara Tugun/Bilinga Pottsville Mermaid Beach 150 Mallawa Drive, Palm Beach is going to auction on March 4.McGrath Palm Beach agent Laura Dean said Palm Beach offered a casual, beachside lifestyle that Gold Coasters loved“Palm Beach still has that quintessential beachside vibe with a great mix of original beach cottages, new duplexes, new detached homes and some amazing waterfront properties going up,” she said.“People have realised that this is one of the last suburbs on the coast where you can get this amazing mix of lifestyle and location.”Mr Gillespie said suburbs on the fringe of recent strong performers were now likely to have a better chance of price growth.“Volume will remain similar to what we have seen, which will assist an increase in values as buyer demand will remain strong,” he said.“The lack of product being available should result in quick-selling periods.” 150 Mallawa Drive, Palm Beach.Rounding out the top three suburbs to watch, Mr Gillespie said Varsity Lakes may also see a heightened market as a result of US President Donald Trump’s border policy.He predicted this could increase the overseas student intake at Bond University, creating more demand for rental properties. The relatively new suburb, which was developed by Delfin Lend Lease in 2002, was one of the Coast’s fastest-selling suburbs in 2016 recording a median house sale price of $597,500.

And Banora Point — on the back of the Coolangatta and Tweed markets having improved — is a very affordable family home location.”Mr Gillespie said Pottsville made the list because of its affordability compared with Kingscliff and Casuarina.He said that while overall house and unit prices looked set to increase, he didn’t expect growth to match that of the past two years.“Investor product will slow as lending restrictions tighten and yields fall on the back of a potential oversupply in the investor-focused fringe locations.”
