Electrical conductivity measurements made using the dielectric profiling technique (DEP) are compared to chemical data from the top 350 m of the Dome C ice core in Antarctica. The chemical data are used to calculate the concentration of the major acidic impurities in the core: sulphuric acid and hydrochloric acid. The conductivity coefficients in solid ice for sulphuric acid (beta(H2SO4)) and hydrochloric acid (beta(HCl)) are found to be 4.9 and 4.5 S m(-1) M-1. These are consistent with previously found values for the acid conductivity coefficient at different sites and suggest that the same conductivity mechanisms are important in all polar ice. A method of rolling regression analysis is used to find the variation of the pure ice conductivity (sigma(infinity) pure) and the conductivity coefficient of sulphuric acid, beta(H2SO4), with depth. Then sigma(infinity) pure and beta(H2SO4) are assessed against changes in core density and hence volume fraction of ice, nu, due to the inclusion of air bubbles in the firn. Looyenga’s model for dielectric mixtures applied to conduction in firn broadly predicts the variation observed in sigma(infinity) pure but does not fit well for ice above 110 m. A previous application of the theory of percolation in random lattices is used to model the conductivity coefficient in firn. The coefficient beta(H2SO4) is linked to nu by the power law: beta(H2SO4)(nu) proportional to beta(H2SO4) (1) (nu – nu(c))(t); where nu(c) is a threshold volume fraction below which no conduction can take place and is related to the geometry of the conducting lattice being modeled. The value of the exponent t is also dependent on the structure of the lattice and is here found to be t = 2.5, which is slightly lower than the previously obtained value of t = 2.7 for a structure where each grain has between 14 and 16 nearest neighbors. This model is consistent with the concept of conduction, via liquid H2SO4, taking place at two grain boundaries for firn. The model does not, however, preclude conduction taking place via acid situated at three grain boundaries or in an interconnected vein network at densities above 640 kg m(-3).

Sinn Féin Justice Spokesperson, Deputy Pádraig Mac Lochlainn has described the Garda Inspectorate report into crime investigation as “a major milestone in Irish policing”.The Donegal TD called on the Minister for Justice, Frances Fitzgerald to immediately establish a Criminal Justice Service Group to implement the recommendations in the report.Deputy Mac Lochlainn said: “The Garda Inspectorate is a comprehensive and devastating critique of the systems within An Garda Síochána. It is a major milestone in Irish policing and reveals that our police service is simply not fit for purpose based on international best practice. “The criticism in the report of the new Garda rosters, lack of Garda vehicles and the loss of trained Garda to admin duties are a particular embarrassment to this Government. Their programme of cutbacks was labelled as “modernisation” and “smart policing”. That spin has now been exposed for all to see.”He concluded: “The Garda Inspectorate has called on the Government to establish a Criminal Justice Service Group to implement the recommendations in the report. They also again call for the establishment of a Criminal Justice Working Group to implement the recommendations of their previous report on the Fixed Charged Processing System (penalty points). It is absolutely vital that the Minister immediately establish both.“As the report points out, not only have the Irish people been failed but also the majority of the decent men and women of An Garda Síochána. We all deserve a modern, fit for purpose policing service.” GOVERNMENT MUST IMPLEMENT GARDA INSPECTORATE RECOMMENDATIONS – Mac LOCHLAINN was last modified: November 11th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalGarda reforminspectoratePadraig Mac Lochlainnreport

(PHOTO/file)On the eve of their second game, the Cranes who are camped at Radisson Blu Cairo Helioplis, received their bonuses.The development happened on the match eve to the Zimbabwe Warriors encounter at the team’s Radisson Blu Cairo Heliopolis hotel base.“We held a meeting with the players and officials, narrated FUFA Media manager Ahmed Hussein.“Everything progressed well including their allowances and bonuses.“The players and the technical department are all focused for the game with Zimbabwe on Wednesday night.”With the money now in their pockets, the players are expected to maintain high spirits as they bid to reach the knock out stage for the first time since 1978.Forward Abdu Lumala who suffered a knock in the win of DR Congo has been past fit and will be available for selection on Wednesday night.Head coach Sebastien Desabre is expected to make only one change to the line up with Murushid Juuko who has not been training consistently, expected to drop from the starting team.Comments
Goalkeeper Joe Lumey makes his senior debut for QPR in the FA Cup third-round clash at the City Ground, where Rangers have never won.Lumley, who turns 21 next month, is a product of Rangers’ youth system and has had loan spells at Accrington and Morecambe.He plays because Alex Smithies, who had been lined up to replace Rob Green, has an elbow problem. Poland Under-18 international keeper Marcin Brzozowski is therefore on the bench.Meanwhile, Jamie Mackie, back after a hamstring injury, plays against his former club – his first start since the opening day of the season – and, as expected, Ben Gladwin starts after being recalled from his loan spell at Swindon.There are also starting places for Clint Hill, Massimo Luongo, Michael Doughty and Jay Emmanuel-Thomas.Nottingham Forest are captained by former QPR striker Dexter Blackstock and Chris Cohen makes his first start in 15 months after returning from injury.Nottingham Forest: De Vries, Cohen, Hobbs, Wilson, Mancienne, O Burke, Osborn, Tesche, Gardner, Ward, Blackstock.Subs: Evtimov, Lichaj, Jokic, Lansbury, Mendes, C Burke, Walker.QPR: Lumley, Onuoha, Angella, Hall, Hill, Tozser, Doughty, Mackie, Luongo, Gladwin, Emmanuel-Thomas.Subs: Brzozowski, Chery, Faurlin, Petrasso, Polter, Hoilett, Perch.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook

Ask Ashutosh Gowariker, who has decided to create yet another epic movie, Mohenjo-Daro, on the 5,000-year-old city that remains a historical puzzle. A smart choice. The Jodhaa Akbar director won’t face the long arm of the law or people baying for his blood this time around. Here’s what you can expect.What language did they use? No one knows, except that, well, they did not speak Hindi. New research shows their script to be an old version of Tamil.Kareena KapoorGet ready for a very different Hrithik. He will have to sport a beard, if not a shaved upper lip (say historians), long hair (he looks nice in that) held in place by a hairband or in a bun (Mohenjo-Daro men did that a lot) and wear a toga, with one bare shoulder. Weird, but leaves plenty of scope for the Greek God of Bollywood to show off his muscles.Sonakshi SinhaThe Censor Board will be aghast if the film is too close to history. Remember the bronze dancing girl of Mohenjo-Daro? She had bangles all the way up one arm and nothing else on. Women in those days mostly went around naked or in tiny skirts.Expect a Bond girl moment at the Great Bath of Mohenjo-Daro, the world’s first swimming pool, with a skimpily clad heroine stepping out of the water and breaking into a song.Priyanka ChopraBut who will be the heroine? A cat fight is on between three beauties-Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Sonakshi Sinha-for the plum role. Check out some ancient figurines. Who do you think has the best chance?advertisement
