New draft VIC horse management plan will help protect alpine areas

first_imgNew draft VIC horse management plan will help protect alpine areas Australian GreensThe ACT Government has welcomed Victoria’s new draft feral horse plan, which expands management options and better aligns with our zero-tolerance approach to the pest animals.Minister for Land Management Mick Gentleman said strong horse management policies were essential to protect sensitive alpine ecosystems.“Feral horses are one of the largest causes of environmental degradation in Australia’s alpine parks,” Minister Gentleman said.“Alpine wetlands filter the water that flows into our drinking catchments and increasing feral horse numbers risk severely damaging these sensitive areas.“We added Namadgi’s ‘High Country Bogs and Associated Fens’ to the ACT Threatened Ecological Communities List last year based on advice from the ACT Scientific Committee.“Victoria’s new plan will give their ecologists and parks staff more options to effectively manage horse populations within their borders.“Now we need the NSW Government to come to the table with a stronger management plan that’s consistent with their neighbours in the ACT and Victoria.“It’s becoming more difficult to keep feral horses out of the ACT’s parks as NSW populations grow – the last count found 14,000 horses across the border in Kosciusko.“While it’s positive that the NSW Environment Minister has promised to reduce these numbers, we need swift action beyond ineffective trapping and rehoming methods.”Minister for the Environment Rebecca Vassarotti said the ACT Government declared feral horses as pest animals last year to recognise the damage they cause to native habitats and species.“Our precious environment does not recognise state boundaries, which is why a joint and consistent approach with NSW is the only way to protect the environment from pests in the ACT and surrounding region,” Minister Vassarotti said.“We need to protect the natural and cultural values of Namadgi National Park from the impacts of feral horses.“The internationally significant Ginini Flats wetland complex in Namadgi National Park is the largest intact sphagnum bog and fen community in the Australian Alps.“We must protect the critically endangered Northern Corroboree Frogs as well as native Broad-toothed Rats, Alpine Tree Frogs, Reik’s Crayfish and Alpine Spiny Crayfish that call these wetlands home.“It is now time for the NSW Government to stop protecting destructive feral horses at the expense of our environment and unique biodiversity.”VIC Feral Horse Action Plan 2021: https://engage.vic.gov.au/alpine-feral-horse-action-planACT Feral Horse Management Plan: www.environment.act.gov.au/parks-conservation/plants-and-animals/biosecurity/pest-animals/feral_horse_management /Public Release.

Increased Strength In Asian Southwest Monsoon May Be Result Of Warming, Say Researchers

first_img Published: July 23, 2002 Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail A new study indicates the Asian southwest monsoon, which affects the livelihood of millions of people, appears to have increased in intensity during the last four centuries, perhaps as a result of warming in the Northern Hemisphere. Researcher David M. Anderson of the University of Colorado at Boulder and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said sediment cores from the Arabian Sea near Oman indicate the wind strength of the monsoon has increased as the Northern Hemisphere has warmed. Anderson and his colleagues hypothesize the southwest monsoon strength will continue to increase during the coming century as greenhouse gases rise and northern latitudes continue to warm. “Our goal is to understand the natural variability of the climate in hopes of determining whether we are influencing the climate of the planet,” said Anderson, a research associate at CU-Boulder’s Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research. “Although there are several scenarios as to why the monsoon is increasing, what we are seeing is consistent with the effects of global warming.” A paper by Anderson, the University of Arizona’s Jonathan Overpeck and the Indian Institute of Technology’s Anil Gupta will appear in the July 26 issue of Science. Roughly 65 percent of the world’s people live in monsoon regions, said Professor Peter Webster of CU-Boulder’s Program for Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciences, who was not involved in the study. Because people in monsoon regions are largely dependent on agriculture, too little rain during weak monsoons can cause significant crop failures while too much rain during extremely strong monsoons can cause flooding, crop damage and population displacement. A monsoon is the seasonal reversal of wind fields that causes dramatic increases in moisture during the warm season, said Anderson, also a NOAA researcher. The two key ingredients to a monsoon are a hot land mass and a cooler ocean. In the case of the Asian southwest monsoon, the key sources are the Tibetan Plateau – which Anderson likened to an “empty frying pan on the stove” — and the Indian Ocean to the south. The winds blowing along the coast of the Arabian Sea during the monsoon cause upwelling of the water, which dramatically increases the abundance of a tiny marine organism known as G. bulloides. The stronger the monsoon, the more G. bulloides are produced. Over time, a unique fossil record of the species has built up on the sea floor, he said. The scientists sampled sea sediment cores containing the fossils in 2-millimeter layers from along the coast of Oman and dated them with radiocarbon techniques. The results have provided valuable data on wind speeds during the summer southwest Asian monsoon going back more than 1,000 years. “We have seen a substantial century-to-century variation on these fossil layers,” said Anderson. From 1200 to 1400, for example, the monsoon was strong. The sediments showed the monsoons to be weaker during the 1600s, when a period of cooling in Europe known as the Little Ice Age is believed to have occurred, he said.  “But the monsoon wind strength has increased during the past four centuries as the Northern Hemisphere has warmed,” Anderson said. There is an apparent link between decreased Eurasian snow cover and increasing monsoon strength, he said. Alternately, climate-forcing events such as greenhouse gases, volcanic aerosols and solar output may be increasing the strength of the monsoon. “Either interpretation is consistent with the hypothesis that the southwestern monsoon strength will increase during the coming century as greenhouse gas concentrations continue to rise and northern latitudes continue to warm,” the researchers wrote in Science.last_img read more

How to write an engaging cover letter

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via Google PlusShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail A cover letter is your chance to show an employer that you are a good fit for an internship or job. Sometimes it can be hard to know how to start a cover letter. But in three simple sections, you can outline one that will make you stand out from the rest. Here are some things to consider and tips for creating an engaging cover letter.Before you beginAn effective cover letter will convey how you are the best candidate for the position. Cover letters should be a quick read (no longer than one page) and should be different for each job or internship application.As you are preparing your cover letter, think about the person who will be reading it. They are typically busy and looking to weed out candidates who don’t seem like a good fit. You should also consider the company. The reader of your cover letter will be looking for someone who not only fits the position, but the company culture, values and mission as well.Part one: Share your interest and desire for the positionThe first section of your letter should communicate three things:The position you are applying for in the company. List the job title and position number (if available) as it appears in the job posting.Why you are interested in that position. Share what it is that draws you to the role. You could talk about your passion for the field, or mention the skills you love to use.Why you want to work for that company. Show that you have done your research and focus on aspects that connect to what the company stands for. This could be values you share, the customers they serve or the projects they take on. Avoid mentioning personal reasons, like location or benefits. This is also a good place to mention if someone connected to the company recommended you apply for the role.Part two: Demonstrate how you are the right person for the jobThe second section is the most crucial, where you address how you meet the needs of the position. Read the full job description and consider how the company describes the person they are looking for. Use wording and keywords from the job description to explain how your experience, skills and interests equip you to excel in the role. Rather than address each specific qualification (sometimes there could be 10-20 listed), focus on the top three or four that most align with your experiences and skills. Make sure to include examples from your previous experiences that demonstrate those qualifications, as that will make your cover letter stand out and make you more memorable to employers. Part three: Express thanks and reiterate your interestThis conclusion section is a chance to demonstrate courtesy and confidence, and reiterate your interest in the role. Thank the reader for considering your application. Politely and with confidence express that you look forward to discussing the opportunity further in an interview and provide your contact information.Aligning your letter with the job description and with what the employer is looking for will give you an advantage over your competition. This is precisely what will make your letter stand out from general cover letters created to submit for multiple job applications. For more job and internship searching tips, meet with a career development advisor.

Vodafone ramps up UK broadband efforts

first_img Steve Costello AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to MoreAddThisMore 12 OCT 2015 Vodafone UK widened availability of its UK broadband services, having previously targeted its existing customers, bundling a twelve-month Netflix subscription to sweeten the deal.The company said its “business-grade” network passes 22 million premises, offering broadband speeds of up to 76Mb/s. Prices are still discounted for Vodafone customers.Vodafone began offering its broadband and home phone services in August, as it looks to battle the bundled propositions offered by rivals – and with the combined BT/EE set to form a strong rival.Indeed, Vodafone Group had been holding talks with cable company Liberty Media about a possible exchange of assets in markets thought to include the UK, although this has – at least in the short term – fallen flat.Features of Vodafone’s service include a router which allows specific devices to be prioritised in terms of connectivity, and family controls to manage when Wi-Fi is available to specific devices.“Our customers are loving the fact that they can control their home broadband from their smartphones and tablets. With the introduction of Vodafone home broadband combined with our ultrafast 4G, Vodafone is now well positioned to satisfy all of our customers’ connectivity needs, both at home and on the go,” Cindy Rose, consumer director at Vodafone UK, said.
