The impact of high-frequency current variability on dispersion off the eastern Antarctic Peninsula

first_imgWe present observations of high-frequency current variability on the continental shelf and the slope of the Antarctic Peninsula using Lagrangian surface drifters deployed as part of the Antarctic Drifter Experiment: Links to Isobaths and Ecosystems (ADELIE) project. Here we focus on high-frequency processes such as tides and inertial oscillations that are typically smoothed out of large-scale spatially averaged, and/or temporally averaged, observed current fields. We investigate the role that this class of motion plays in the transport of physical or biogeochemical properties. Lateral displacements on the shelf and slope are found to be larger than displacements in deeper waters where tidal currents are negligible. We apply this result in a parameterization of the lateral dispersion during an off-line drifter modeling study. The outcome is an improvement on the modeling of Lagrangian drifting particles compared with a standard random walk scheme.last_img read more

Ole Miss basketball players kneel during national anthem to protest pro-Confederate rally

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailESPN(OXFORD, Miss.) — Several members of the University of Mississippi basketball team took a knee as the national anthem was played at the start of Saturday’s game to protest a pro-Confederacy rally that took place near the arena.Minutes before the match-up against the University of Georgia started, both teams lined up on opposite sides of the court for “The Star-Spangled Banner,” but eight Ole Miss players knelt as the band played the song. Six of the players took a knee one by one after the song began, and another two players knelt during the song’s final line, video from the game shows.Two Confederate groups had organized a march on the campus as the game was being played, ESPN reported.When asked during a post-game news conference whether he was aware of his player’s intent to kneel, Ole Miss head coach Kermit Davis said he was not, but added that the protest was “all about the hate groups” who were “trying to spread racism and bigotry” in the community.“It’s created a lot of tension for our campus,” he said. “I think our players made an emotional decision to show these people they’re not welcome on our campus, and we respect our players’ freedom and ability to choose that.”Junior guard Breein Tyree, who appeared to be one of the last to kneel, said during the news conference that there was no discussion among the players on how to respond to the rallies but rather they saw one of their teammates doing it and they “just didn’t want him to be alone.”Kneeling during the national anthem became a controversial form of protest among athletes after Colin Kaepernick, a former quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, took a knee before NFL games during the 2016 season to bring awareness to police brutality and other forms of injustice against African-Americans. The issue became such a hot topic that even President Trump inserted himself into the debate, calling on the NFL to stop the players from kneeling.Coach Davis, who emphasized standing for the national anthem while he was coaching at Middle Tennessee State, said the Ole Miss basketball team would be one that “respects the flag and the national anthem” when he was introduced as its new head coach last year, according to ESPN.Ole Miss athletic director Ross Bjork said in a statement that the protest “had nothing to do with the anthem” but was meant to send a message to the out-of-state groups that they were not welcome on the campus.Bjork said he had a conversation with the players in the locker room after the game to tell them that he supports them because the university “doesn’t want those people here, either.”The Rebels defeated the Bulldogs, 72 to 71.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Watch Dave Chappelle Perform Radiohead’s “Creep” Past 5AM At The SNL After-Party

first_imgYesterday was a triumphant night for Dave Chappelle. After a ten year hiatus from television, he finally made a comeback appearance with the opportunity to host the stalwart of American sketch comedy, Saturday Night Live. The timing was impeccable, as the election of Donald Trump left our country in shambles for days, providing Chappelle the perfect opportunity to deliver his unique brand of racially-charged comedic commentary. Not only that, but his friends and fellow comeback artists, A Tribe Called Quest, were tapped as musical guest, and they put on a master-class performance of socially-conscious hip-hop from their important new record We got it from Here…Thank You 4 Your service.All in all, it was a great night for Chappelle and his friends. Which is why the after party, which took place at The Cutting Room, must have been beyond incredible. Bradley Cooper and Madonna were both in attendance, as was ATCQ cohort Busta Rhymes and New York rock icon Lenny Kravitz. At one point, Kravitz jumped on drums and he and a makeshift band started playing “Creep” by Radiohead. Chappelle himself, flanked by SNL’s Leslie Jones, led a sing-a-long version of the classic introspective song.Of course, social media maven and drummer of The Roots, Questlove, was on hand to provide us with a peak into this wild party. See below for a clip that Quest posted on Instagram of a jubilant Chappelle leading the band.last_img read more

‘Westworld’ Releases Soundtrack With Radiohead, Soundgarden, & More On Spotify [Listen]

first_imgWith its first season coming to a shocking end, HBO series Westworld starring Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachael Wood, and more, has released its extremely recognizable and modern soundtrack, composed by Ramin Djawadi (who also scores Game of Thrones).Throughout the season, Westworld featured versions of the Metallica‘s “Fade to Black,” Soundgarden‘s “Black Hole Sun,” and multiple Radiohead songs, such as “No Surprises,” “Fake Plastic Trees,” “Motion Picture Soundtrack,” and “Exit Music (For a Film),” the latter of which was played in the final, culminating scene of the last episode, where….just kidding, we wouldn’t spoil it for you.Some versions could be heard on the player piano featured in the western-style saloon, or through acoustic guitars and percussion during the frontier landscape scenes, or in other electronic stylings when the show took us to the lab where the androids were being worked on by technicians. Whatever the case, Djawadi provided viewers with beautiful, stripped down arrangements very well-known songs.In an interview with Pitchfork, Djawadi explained the clear dichotomy between past and present in the show and musical arrangement, “You see the settings and the way people are dressed and even though you know it’s robots and it’s all made to be modern entertainment, you would think the people in control would make everything authentic, including whatever is played on that player piano. It would be from that time period. And when it’s not, it’s that subtle reminder that, ‘Wait, there is something not right. This is not real.’ It’s just such a powerful tool that only music can do.”Take a listen to the soundtrack below, via Spotify:[via Pitchfork]last_img read more
