Before the Special Olympics World Games begin on July 25, 2015, more than 7,000 athletes from 177 countries will be welcome to Southern California through the Host Town program. As many as 100 communities from San Luis Obispo to San Diego will have the honor of being selected as an official Host Town.“The Host Town program is an exciting way for Southern California locals to open our doors and show the athletes and coaches from around the world our hospitality and our culture,” said Patrick McClenahan, President and Chief Executive officer of LA2015, the Games Organizing Committee. “This is an important part of the World Games experience and a truly meaningful way for different communities to be part of the Games and create lasting memories for our visiting athletes.”Read more >> Your email address will not be published.

Thousands of young activists challenging lawmakers to act in Global Climate Strike

first_img[email protected] will excuse absences of students participating in the #ClimateStrike on Friday 9/20. Students will need parental consent. Younger students can only leave school with a parent. https://t.co/hcBO1Cnb3m— NYC Public Schools (@NYCSchools) September 12, 2019Activists began posted photos of the posters created for the strike earlier in the week. We’re ready for the #GlobalClimateStrike tomorrow at Boston’s City Hall Plaza, 11:30AM!

Read here on why we’re supporting tomorrow’s strike https://t.co/HnCpqJD7Wn pic.twitter.com/Ue0natdWSv— Global Witness (@Global_Witness) September 19, 2019 DisobeyArt/iStock(NEW YORK) — Hundreds of thousands of young people are gearing up for the Global Climate Strike to raise awareness on climate change and urge lawmakers to create policies to help save the planet ahead of the United Nations Climate Summit next week.The march is building on a “historic surge” of student protests and strikes for climate action, but adults also are formally invited to participate, according to the organizers behind the movement.The strike has grown to include more than 1,000 locations across the U.S. and 4,500 worldwide, with more than 2,000 scientists pledging to attend as well, organizers said.The lead organizer for the New York City march, 19-year-old Shiv Soin, told ABC News that more than 15,000 people have marked that they’re interested in attending on the event’s Facebook page.The youth activists are demanding world leaders stop using fossil fuels, transition to a green economy and hold polluters accountable, Soin said.“We’re going to hold them accountable,” he said.Soin, a politics and economics major at New York University, became passionate about the climate fight after returning to New Delhi in 2011 to attend his grandmother’s funeral, where he said he was hospitalized due to the poor air quality.“I ask myself, will this matter in 20, 30 years if we don’t have a livable planet?” he said. “The answer is no.”Demonstrators in New York will meet at a rally in Foley Square and march south to Battery Park, where 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg will be among the speakers, Soin said.On Wednesday Thunberg implored U.S. lawmakers at the House Foreign Affairs Committee to “listen to the science” and take “real action” to curb carbon emissions.New York City Public Schools will be excusing 1.1 million students from class on Friday — with parental permission — so they can participate in the strike.

Jets and topography: jet transitions and the impact on transport in the Antarctic Circumpolar Current

first_imgThe Southern Ocean’s Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) naturally lends itself to interpretations using a zonally averaged framework. Yet, navigation around steep and complicated bathymetric obstacles suggests that local dynamics may be far removed from those described by zonally symmetric models. In this study, both observational and numerical results indicate that zonal asymmetries, in the form of topography, impact global flow structure and transport properties. The conclusions are based on a suite of more than 1.5 million virtual drifter trajectories advected using a satellite altimetry–derived surface velocity field spanning 17 years. The focus is on sites of ‘‘cross front’’ transport as defined by movement across selected sea surface height contours that correspond to jets along most of the ACC. Cross-front exchange is localized in the lee of bathymetric features with more than 75% of crossing events occurring in regions corresponding to only 20% of the ACC’s zonal extent. These observations motivate a series of numerical experiments using a two-layer quasigeostrophic model with simple, zonally asymmetric topography, which often produces transitions in the front structure along the channel. Significantly, regimes occur where the equilibrated number of coherent jets is a function of longitude and transport barriers are not periodic. Jet reorganization is carried out by eddy flux divergences acting to both accelerate and decelerate the mean flow of the jets. Eddy kinetic energy is amplified downstream of topography due to increased baroclinicity related to topographic steering. The combination of high eddy kinetic energy and recirculation features enhances particle exchange. These results stress the complications indeveloping consistent circumpolar definitions of the ACC fronts.last_img read more
