TORONTO — Lee Salo credits the birth of his son last year with changing his perspective on a lot of things, including how he viewed the insurance industry.“Before then, I could say that the idea of life insurance seemed like a way for people to swindle money out of you,” laughs the 32-year-old Vancouver man.[np_storybar title=”Why staying in school isn’t always smart” link=”https://business.financialpost.com/2013/01/03/why-staying-in-school-isnt-always-smart/”%5DSober Second Thought: Drowning in debt and close to finishing a second university degree, this woman wonders if continuing her studies is worth it. Jason Heath has the surprising answer.Continue reading . . . [/np_storybar]Nowadays, Salo, who also recently became a homeowner and motorist, is thinking more and more about his legacy, and more importantly, the financial safety net he wants in place for his young family if he died.“As you get older, you realize you’re not the individual who is exempt from any kind of issue,” he said.“When you’re young, you assume that nothing will ever happen to you, that you’re indestructible.”Financial adviser Harley Lockhart says everyone should have a life insurance policy, even if they are still in school, or just entering the workforce.“One thing that is overlooked about life insurance is that nobody has any right to life insurance,” said Lockhart, who runs a practice in Kelowna, B.C. and chairs Advocis, the Financial Advisors Association of Canada.Something he tells clients over and over is that the earlier you buy insurance premiums, the cheaper they’ll be and the longer you’ll be able to lock them in at that price.“Frankly, for a young person to buy term insurance is a very minimal expense, less than what their phone bill is every month, that’s for sure,” said Lockhart.Not only does insurance give people with young families piece of mind, he says, but the reality is, teenagers, and even children, should have policies to protect their parents from financial burden too.“Basically, life insurance is something you buy if you love somebody,” said Lockhart. “People who don’t love anybody, don’t need it, have no use for it.”Janine White, vice-president of Kanetix.ca, an online insurance quoter, says policies can be tailored to suit financial demands following a death, from funeral costs to paying off a mortgage to supporting children left behind.According to the website, an average $250,000 policy for someone 18 years old can be as little as $150 a year.Yet despite the low cost, many young people don’t think about making the purchase until a major life event, like buying a home, a new marriage or the birth of a child.Before buying a policy, White recommends speaking with an expert who can help with determining your financial goals.In some instances, it may be smarter for a student to take the money and use it to pay off outstanding bills instead of buying insurance, she said.“If you’ve got debts, student loans, you haven’t maxed out an RRSP and you’re very young, the advice is often to look at those things first and make sure those things are covered off, before looking into life insurance to cover off the future,” said White.“Look at your present to make sure that’s all sorted.” read more

He also said that during his meetings with the government he will be discussing about the values of the Commonwealth. After arriving in Sri Lanka last night, Burt said that during his visit he will be getting a sense of how reconciliation is progressing in the country. British Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office Alistair Burt visited the north today after arriving in Sri Lanka late last night.The Foreign Office Minister is in Killinochchi this morning for meetings from where he will then travel to Jaffna Report by Easwaran Rutnam Speaking at the British House of Commons earlier this month, Burt said that it was too soon to talk about the British government’s attendance plans for the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in Sri Lanka this year.“We will not move from that position for a period of time. Sri Lanka was scheduled to host the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in 2011, but given ongoing concerns about the humanitarian and human rights situation, the UK and other Commonwealth members did not support its bid. However, Commonwealth members decided that Sri Lanka would host in 2013. To reopen that decision would require a consensus of all member states and I do not think that is likely.  A decision on the location of CHOGM is not for the UK; it is for the Commonwealth. The meeting will discuss many issues, not just Sri Lanka, but as Sri Lanka well knows it will inevitably shine a spotlight on the host country, demonstrating either its progress or lack of it. It is up to Sri Lanka to choose what will be seen,” he told the House of Commons. (Colombo Gazette) read more

TORONTO – The head of one of the country’s largest real estate investment trusts said he’s not worried about big-name Canadian companies preparing to enter the REIT market.Instead, he welcomes them.H&R Real Estate Investment Trust chief executive Tom Hofstedter said investors will continue to see the value in the REIT even as the number of players in the area increase with Canadian Tire (TSX:CTC.A) and Loblaw Cos. Ltd. (TSX:L) both in the process of establishing their own trusts.“I think they’re not going to enter our world and be aggressive real estate players as they have inherently their own inventories that they can build off,” he said Thursday following H&R’s annual general meeting.“I don’t think it’s competition. In fact, I think it’s a welcome addition to our world.”Hofstedter said the risk of oversaturation of the REIT market comes from smaller companies, not the big names.H&R REIT (TSX:HR.UN) holds a portfolio of 40 office, 112 industrial and 163 retail properties across North America.Earlier this month, the Toronto-based trust signed a deal to buy a Fort McMurray, Alta., mall for $168.5 million in a deal expected to close July 3. It also recently secured $300-million in financing for the Bow office tower in Calgary.Hofstedter said H&R’s focus on shopping centres, for instance, including its recent $2.7-billion acquisition of Primaris REIT which owns several properties occupied by discount retailer Target, has helped it carve out a specialty.“That’s where we have a leg up right now, and where I think the opportunities lie,” he said.In recent months, Canadian Tire (TSX:CTC.a) announced that it was creating a $3.5-billion REIT to unlock the value of its property holdings, and will open its initial public offering later this year. The trust would encompass 250 properties, totalling 18 million square feet with an approximate market value of $3.5 billion.Grocer Loblaw (TSX:L) also announced it was starting a $7-billion REIT, expected to be one of the largest commercial real estate trusts in Canada. Choice Properties Real Estate Investment Trust will hold 415 retail properties, nine warehouses, and one office complex.Investors have been flocking to real estate trusts over the past few years as stable options for their investments in a low-interest environment. Returns of five per cent or more have helped boost the popularity of the stocks. H&R said that its investors saw a return of nine per cent in 2012.But as uncertainty persists over how long interest rates will continue to stay low, some have been questioning whether REITs can hold onto their value.Kevin Chu, a REIT analyst with independent equity firm Accountability Research Corp., said rising interest rates will put the value of REITs at risk, as investors weigh other options like bonds.“For any investor, they should focus in on higher quality REITs, high quality assets, and ones that give better risk-adjusted returns,” he said.“In general, they have to think about their investments, whether they give them a favourable yield. If they have a REIT giving you five to six per cent — that will be a better investment than a bond or a GIC.” by Linda Nguyen, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 20, 2013 5:01 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email H&R REIT doesn’t see Canadian Tire and Loblaw real estate trusts as competition read more

“I encourage any remaining Al-Shabaab to lay down their arms. Now is the time for peace and political progress for all Somali people,” said the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Somalia, Nicholas Kay.He called the recovery by the Somali National Army (SNA) and African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) forces a “critical milestone” in the country’s path to peace and stability. After decades of factional fighting, new Somali national institutions emerged in 2012, as the country ended a transitional phase toward setting up a permanent, democratically-elected Government.The SNA and AMISOM have been pursuing a renewed offensive against Al-Shabaab insurgents, who in 2011 were forced to retreat from the capital, Mogadishu.The UN Assistance Mission in Somalia (UNSOM), which Mr. Kay leads, was established in 2013 by the UN Security Council. It is mandated to support the Federal Government of Somalia with its peace and state building agenda and to strengthen Somalia’s security sector, promote respect for human rights and women’s empowerment and assist in the coordination of international assistance. read more

first_imgEver wonder why a Leica M9 camera costs more than a nice used car? One of the reasons is because of the meticulous manufacturing process these things go through.

first_imgJust over a year ago, Microsott and Nokia rocked the technology world when they announced their new partnership. Though the original agreement meant Nokia would become Microsoft’s go-to Windows Phone producer, rumors have swirled ever since that a Windows 8 tablet was on the cards, too.According to a DigiTimes sources, the Nokia Windows 8 tablet could be arriving as soon as the 2012 holiday season. It’s expected to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and a 10-inch touchscreen display. If Nokia really is working on such a device, let’s hope they’re planning on utilizing that ultra-responsive 1ms prototype capacitive unit Microsoft Research demonstrated recently.The tablet will also reportedly be built by Compal, who will no doubt be happy to assemble a device that won’t require them to hand over royalty payments to Microsoft.Skeptics may wonder whether Nokia would actually build a tablet. Their success has come from smaller devices, and forays into other areas — like the 10.1-inch Nokia Booklet laptop — haven’t gone over all that well. But that was then and this is now.Nokia has already shown that they’re throwing their full weight behind Microsoft. In addition to the eye-catching Lumia phones already on the market, Nokia is preparing to unleash an army of low-cost Windows Phone Tango devices. They’ve already gotten plenty of hands-on experience coding Metro apps, and their developers will be able to port code from Lumia phones to a Lumia tablet with ease.With the two companies working so closely now, it could even be a “Nexus” device, if Microsoft decides to take a page out of Google’s book.More at DigiTimeslast_img read more

first_img Is Inhumans good?It’s alright.Just alright?It’s the first two episodes of a standard-budgeted network TV genre show, sort-of spun-off from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., being released as an IMAX “special engagement” to promote the launch of the series-proper. This show is based on a subset of Marvel Comics characters generally considered to be too weird/obscure for prime time and widely believed to only be getting this kind of a big league push because Ike Perlmutter thought they could be reworked into an X-Men replacement. In that context? It’s alright, yeah.Okay. So… what’s it all about?Do you watch Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and/or regularly follow the fringe regions of the Marvel Comics line?Let’s assume I do not.Groovy. Okay: The Inhumans are this weird set of characters that originated back in the old Fantastic Four comics that were kind of a dry-run for various ideas Stan Lee and/or Jack Kirby would end up expanding upon in later projects like X-Men and especially Kirby’s later 2001, Fourth World and Eternals stuff. Their mythos is VERY convoluted, and they’ve never been particularly popular, but the basic idea is that they’re an alternate strain of the human race who descend from early-humans who were experimented on by The Kree in prehistoric times.Refresh my memory: The Kree are…?The mean blue aliens from Guardians of The Galaxy – Ronan the Accuser’s people. Anyway, Inhumans are born indistinguishable from “normal” humans, but exposure to a rare element called Terrigen (traditionally as part of a reaching-adulthood ceremony) their latent Kree-augmented genes become dominant, and they manifest super-powers and/or extreme physical transformations. Originally, the comics depicted them as a relatively small secret-civilization living in a hidden city where the main characters were the Inhuman Royal Family. But more recent stories introduced the idea that there are actually a lot of Inhumans all over the world who just don’t know their true nature because they haven’t encountered Terrigen yet; which was the narrative mechanism by which Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. introduced Inhumans to the Marvel Cinematic Universe prior to this series.So this DOES connect to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., after all?Yes – though, given how AoS’s fourth season wrapped, no characters from that show actually show up here… at least, not yet. In any case, S.H.I.E.L.D’s second season introduced the idea that Inhumans have been living either in secret or in ignorance (of their true selves) since prehistoric times, and that season’s big climax involved Earth’s water supply becoming contaminated with Terrigen. This causes an “outbreak” of newly-transformed Inhumans to flare up all over the globe. Season 3 revealed that HYDRA was founded as a religious cult worshipping an ancient Inhuman “god” and that some of the old-school Inhumans had left Earth altogether once upon a time. THIS series is about those guys, or rather the Inhuman secret-city they apparently established in secret on the Moon, where the Royal Family familiar from the comics are both in charge and our main protagonists.Okay. So who are these people and what super-power stuff do they do?King Black Bolt (his power is a voice so loud that even a whisper is like a bomb going off), Queen Medusa (living hair, like in Disney’s Tangled), Princess Crystal (Medusa’s little sister, does elemental science-magic), Gorgon (really strong, has hooves), Karnak (kung-fu guy, sees the future), Triton (fish-man), and Lockjaw a gigantic but friendly bulldog with teleporting powers that they use to get around.That’s… wow. Okay, who are the bad guys and what’s the conflict?Black Bolt has been covertly sanctioning attempts to rescue newly-transformed (because of the stuff from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) Inhumans from Earth and bring them to Attilan (the Moon city.) This angers BB’s scheming, jealous younger brother Maximus; who thinks Attilan can’t support much more of a population and thinks their civilization should return to Earth and take over the planet. Also, he had a crush on Medusa before she hooked up with his brother and he’s still kind of sore about that, plus he has a massive inferiority complex about not having powers of his own.So Maximus isn’t Inhuman?It’s… complicated. Apparently, not all Inhumans get powers after going through “Terrigenesis” – and some that do get kind of crummy, minor powers. These less-lucky Inhumans make up an impoverished underclass in Attilan’s genetic caste-system, and part of Maximus’ desire (or what he claims is his desire) to take the Inhumans back to Earth is that abundant room and resources will render the caste-system redundant. Hence why the main thrust of these two episodes (once introductions are out of the way) is him initiating a military coup that puts him on the throne, Crystal and Lockjaw under house arrest and Black Bolt, Medusa, Gorgon, Triton, and Karnak fleeing to Earth (specifically Hawaii.)Why am I not supposed to root for Maximus? Seems like he’s got a pretty good point!They cast the guy who played Ramsay Bolton on Game of Thrones, so… we’re kind of already meant to “guess” that there are darker motives waiting to be revealed. But, yeah – one of the reasons that this franchise is hard to work with is that there’s a weird quasi-eugenicist “blood purity” undercurrent to the backstory that’s kind of tough to mitigate without blowing up the whole mythos. Presumably, the show making it so central to the main conflict means they’ll be tackling these questions directly; but right now that’s a big maybe.So what CAN we tell about it, based on these two episodes?The whole enterprise is incredibly silly – turns out I jumped the gun in declaring Defenders the cheesiest thing Marvel has ever done. When you combine the inherent absurdity of the premise and characters with the way outside their budget scope and character concepts, what you end up with is, effectively, a late-90s Nickelodeon genre series but with middle-aged adults instead of teenagers. At least some of that is owed to the chintzy minimalist production design, which would probably look pretty cool if they bothered to photograph it with any kind of flair beyond basic network drama point-and-shoot setups. I’m sure they spent what is for ABC a lot of money on this, but they really could’ve stood to spend some more of it.Oof. What are the good parts?In a way, super-cheesy might have been the ONLY place you can go when your main characters’ primary mode of travel is “teleporting giant dog” and whose leader never speaks because his power is super-shouting. It’s probably a foregone conclusion that Lockjaw will end up being the “big thing” everyone likes (because dog), but – honestly, so far the standout actually seems to be Anson Mount as Black Bolt. Mount has a really rough, “hard-edged” tough guy look happening; so it’s kind of a riot to see him playing this guy whose alternately arrogant and “kingly” but also wounded, self-conscious and who can only communicate through sign language, gesture, and facial expressions. This has to be a weird role to figure out, and he’s doing something really interesting with it so far. Also, his relationship with Serinda Swan as Medusa feels pretty genuine and worth investing in – they’ve got real chemistry, and she holds her own despite having easily the MCU’s silliest looking super-power. The other characters, though, are all carrying invisible “I’ll be interesting later in the season” signs.So what’s the verdict?It’s a big mixed bag and almost certainly not the “royal intrigue epic” core fans of the comics were hoping for, but as network sci-fi shows go it has potential. Despite the budget kneecapping a lot of the broader weirdness, it’s still bizarre enough just on its face to stand out among other genre shows, and despite the connections, it feels decently different enough from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and other MCU material. It’s a very silly show executed in a cheesy, schlocky way; but there’s room for it to (maybe) grow into the right kind of cheesy.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, February 24, 2018 – Nassau – The Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture announced, on February 21, 2018, that it will be holding its second Culture and Youth in the Park event on Saturday, February 24, from 3pm to 7pm, at the Father Marshall Cooper Park, in the area of Centreville.“The Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture believes that we have a commitment to engage young people — particularly in our historic communities,”  Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture the Hon. Michael Pintard said at the press conference held that day, at the Ministry’s University Drive Headquarters.The Culture and Youth in the Park programme is a part of community outreach and a way to encourage and recognize the youth and culturally-minded persons throughout The Bahamas.“Many of the challenges that our young people are facing, we believe would’ve been worse had it not been for the many organizations — including church or faith based organizations, the civic and social organizations —  who continue to intervene in these communities,” he added.  “We want parents and young people to know the various organizations that they can join and be a part of and support.”Minister Pintard noted that a part of that exercise is to expose the community to those types of organizations.“At the same time, it’s important that we showcase the talent in these communities,” Minister Pintard said.  “We believe Bahamians are as talented as anyone else and anywhere else, and to the extent that young people in our historic communities can see gifted young persons just like themselves performing and speaking to them about real issues they are facing in their community; it inspires them.”Cultural Affairs Officer Mrs. Terez Davis-Nixon said that the Ministry is “so excited” to once again present an opportunity for persons to showcase “who we are as Bahamians.”Youth Officer John Ronald Darville said that the youth component of the progamme seeks primarily to provide opportunities for youth engagement.“Statistics have proven that young persons who are involved in holistic activities are less likely to be engaged in deviant behaviour; and so a thrust, based on the mandate that has been given to us, has been to bring to the community level youth engagement, organizations, programs and projects that may be facilitated by persons in various youth organizations that are registered with the Ministry of Youth Sports and Culture — to provide the process of registration for persons in the community who may not be engagd in a youth organization or activity,” Mr. Darville said.Project Coordinator Henry Higgins added that a number of groups and performers from the Centreville area will be taking part in the event, including the 80-plus-member Centreville Primary School Choir, the Fort Fincastle youth group.Mr. Higgins pointed out there will also be a Junkanoo rush-out and Bahamian talents from the wider community taking part in the event.“Leroy the ‘Limbo’ King is coming to perform our limbo dancing and  we have Sammie Star, one of our great musicians and singers, will be there as well, along with Mr. J, who does a lot of his music based on educating children to stay in school,” he said.Mr. Higgins pointed out that all of the craft and vendors will be from the Centreville area.  “What we are doing is showcasing the culture of Centreville on that day,” he said.“Part of our role, we believe, is to inspire our people,” Minister Pintard reiterated.  “As challenging as things are, we know that things are in fact — through the grace of God, through our hard work and collaboration — going to get a lot better.”By: Eric RosePhoto Caption:  The Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture announces, on February 21, 2018, its Culture and Youth in the Park event, to be held on Saturday, February 24, from 3pm to 7pm, at the Father Marshall Cooper Park, in the area of Centreville.  Pictured (from left) are Project Coordinator Henry Higgins, Cultural Affairs Officer Mrs. Terez Davis-Nixon, Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture the Hon.

first_imgACP now has 12 full-time employees, with nine former employees doing freelance edit and production work. The company also brought back editorial director Greg Sitek.In late July, ACP re-launched Construction Digest and New England Construction. In August, it plans to bring back six more titles, and have all 13 up and running by September. Reed held onto Construction Bulletin magazine.The deal was done as a license agreement through the end of 2009, with White having the option to pick up everything in January. While he wouldn’t reveal specifics, White says his group sold the titles for $21 million about 15 years ago (the magazines went through several owners before landing at Reed). “We didn’t pay nearly that much this time,” he added. “This was good for Reed because it helped them cover a lot of their shutdown costs.” White is facing a new reality with the magazines. At the time he sold them, collective revenue for the ACP titles was around $19 million. With the 13 he has now, he’s expecting about $5 million in 2010. “Give me six months and we can give a better answer on the potential,” White said, adding that his smaller operation could see greater profits than it did under Reed. “When you’re part of a larger corporation, there are many layers of overhead put on the magazines. We don’t operate that way.” Re-Focusing On the Local MarketOne priority for White is getting ACP back to its roots in local coverage. “Reed was focused more on national manufacturer sales because those were bigger dollars,” he said. “They tried selling locally over the phone and eliminated the local sales presence. That had been the heart and soul of the ACP magazines. We’ve tripled the sales team at the local level and we’re getting very good response from our old customers but we’ve had people tell us that if we weren’t going to make those commitments to local coverage we’d be better off leaving the magazines to die.” So far, ACP has attracted advertisers such as Volvo and LBX. “Many of these advertisers had already re-allocated the 2009 budget for these magazines but when they saw what we were doing, they found a little more,” said White. “It was their way of saying, ‘We’re glad you’re back, here’s what we can do to support you while you’re ramping up.’”ACP is changing both the format and design of the magazines. Weekly and twice-per-month magazines will go monthly, and will grow to tabloid-size with larger, full color graphics. “When you’re competing with digital media, my experience is that you’ve got to have something visually appealing as well as good editorial,” White said. “Rather than have people toil through small print, if we can put better graphics/pictures along with well written stories, that will attract readers.”Once the print products are live, ACP will then turn its attention to ramping up Web and live events. “We partner with a lot of associations and other groups that do events,” White said. “That’s what they do well. If there are opportunities for us to get into events where we can sponsor or put them on, we have capabilities to do it. I’m a huge believer that print is here to stay. We will invest in those e-media initiatives that make sense but very few of our readers are sitting at their desks online all day.” Reed Business Information’s former regional construction magazines are set to live again in print.In April, RBI shuttered all but one of the magazines published under its Associated Construction Publications Group, which consisted of 14 regional construction titles. That created an opportunity for John White, the original co-owner of the ACP titles (which were started by his ex-father-in-law), who continued to publish a newspaper for commercial construction in Indiana. “I called Reed and spoke with one of the VPs who was willing to see if there was interest in selling,” White told FOLIO:. “I didn’t need much for due diligence. It was basically, ‘You can have what’s here, you get what you get, do it quickly because we want it out of here.’” last_img read more

first_img This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Research has shown as air temperatures rise, so too do ocean temperatures and as more carbon dioxide is released into the air, more of it is soaked up by oceans the world over, where it reacts to make carbonic acid. That in turn causes the water to have lowered pH levels which causes lowered levels of dissolved carbonate, which is what corals use to create their skeletons. The result seen thus far has been slowed coral growth.It was those skeletons that the team looked at in the waters off Australia’s west coast, specifically those of Porites. As corals grow over time, they create layers of skeleton material that can be read like tree rings to discern not just their age, but how much the coral grew each year. By drilling into some of the larger coral reefs, the team was able to trace the corals back hundreds of years. But it was the record of the last hundred that surprised them. Rather than finding slowed growth, such as has been seen with the Great Barrier Reef on the eastern part of the country, the growth in some areas of the southern sections had actually been growing at a faster rate than prior to the start of global warming.After more thought, the team has come to the conclusion that what they’ve found makes sense. The increased growth rates were found only in the more southern corals where water temperatures are generally cooler than in the north, thus, an increase in temperature would be more conducive to coral growth. But only up to a point. They believe once temperatures reach those of the north, the same slowed growth patterns seen elsewhere will appear.Interestingly, the team did not sample the ocean water at the sites where the coral samples were taken, and because of that, it’s not known if acidity levels in those areas that saw high growth rates had higher acidity levels or not. © 2011 PhysOrg.com Scientist creates new hypothesis on ocean acidification More information: Growth of Western Australian Corals in the Anthropocene, Science 3 February 2012: Vol. 335 no. 6068 pp. 593-596. DOI: 10.1126/science.1214570ABSTRACTAnthropogenic increases of atmospheric carbon dioxide lead to warmer sea surface temperatures and altered ocean chemistry. Experimental evidence suggests that coral calcification decreases as aragonite saturation drops but increases as temperatures rise toward thresholds optimal for coral growth. In situ studies have documented alarming recent declines in calcification rates on several tropical coral reef ecosystems. We show there is no widespread pattern of consistent decline in calcification rates of massive Porites during the 20th century on reefs spanning an 11° latitudinal range in the southeast Indian Ocean off Western Australia. Increasing calcification rates on the high-latitude reefs contrast with the downward trajectory reported for corals on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and provide additional evidence that recent changes in coral calcification are responses to temperature rather than ocean acidification. (PhysOrg.com) — As most people are well aware, global warming isn’t just about the atmosphere, it’s about rising ocean temperatures as well. And like increases in the atmosphere, scientists aren’t really clear on what impact such temperature increases will have on the oceans. One such impact most researchers thought was well understood was the bleaching of coral reefs. As ocean temperatures rise and become more acidic, coral reefs tend to slough off the algae that grows on them, causing them to slowly die. Now however, new research by a team from the Australian Institute of Marine Science, has found that coral reefs off the western shores of the Australian continent are not only not suffering from the increased temperature, but are apparently thriving, as the study they’ve published in Science describes, they have actually been growing faster in the past hundred years than prior to that time.

first_img Journal information: Biology Letters Vision regression is common in organisms that live in environments with limited light—there is no biological advantage if they can’t see anything anyway. Hearing regression, on the other hand, has not been studied very well. In this new effort, the researchers could find only one study that had been undertaken to find out if it even occurs. In that effort, the research team had found no differences in hearing abilities between the Mexican tetra and a type of Molly, compared to their surface lake cousins.To find out more, the researchers chose to study Amblyopsis spelaea and Typhlichthys subterraneus—blind fish that live in caves in Kentucky. They collected live samples of both, along with samples of Forbesichthys agassizii, a close cousin that lives in lakes in Tennessee.To test the hearing abilities of the fish, the researchers used brain scanners to note neural reaction to sounds being heard. The found that at low frequencies—up to 800 hertz—all three of the fish species could hear equally well. At higher frequencies, however, they found that the cave fish were virtually deaf compared to the surface fish. The researchers also found that the cave dwellers had just two-thirds as many hair cells in their ears as the surface fish.To find out why the cave dwelling fish might have lost hearing in such a specific range, the researchers ventured into the caves where they lived and monitored sound levels. They note that caves are much noisier places than most would expect, with running water and constant dripping—they found that the dominant sounds in the caves fell in the range that the fish that lived there could not hear. As with vision regression, there is no biological advantage to having a sense that doesn’t work at a certain range.The researchers note that previous studies have shown that some subterranean fish species have developed a sixth sense—an ability to detect water currents with their skin—as an adaption to their unique environments. That they say, could help them overcome both vision and hearing regression, helping them to survive in their dark and noisy environment. Explore further Typhlichthys subterraneus. Credit: Dante Fenolio, doi: 10.1098/rsbl.2013.0104 Darkness stifles reproduction of surface-dwelling fish (Phys.org) —A team of researchers made up of members from the U.S. and Canada has found that two species of fish that live in caves in the eastern and central parts of the United States have suffered hearing regression as a result of their environment—the first such example ever found. In their paper published in the journal Biology Letters, the group describes how they compared two species of cave dwelling fish with a close cousin that lives in a surface lake, and found that the subterranean dwellers had lost the ability to hear some high frequency sounds.center_img Citation: Study finds first example of auditory regression in a subterranean organism (2013, March 28) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-03-auditory-regression-subterranean.html More information: Evidence for hearing loss in amblyopsid cavefishes, Biology Letters, Published 27 March 2013 doi: 10.1098/rsbl.2013.0104AbstractThe constant darkness of caves and other subterranean habitats imposes sensory constraints that offer a unique opportunity to examine evolution of sensory modalities. Hearing in cavefishes has not been well explored, and here we show that cavefishes in the family Amblyopsidae are not only blind but have also lost a significant portion of their hearing range. Our results showed that cave and surface amblyopsids shared the same audiogram profile at low frequencies but only surface amblyopsids were able to hear frequencies higher than 800 Hz and up to 2 kHz. We measured ambient noise in aquatic cave and surface habitats and found high intensity peaks near 1 kHz for streams underground, suggesting no adaptive advantage in hearing in those frequencies. In addition, cave amblyopsids had lower hair cell densities compared with their surface relative. These traits may have evolved in response to the loud high-frequency background noise found in subterranean pools and streams. This study represents the first report of auditory regression in a subterranean organism. © 2013 Phys.org This document is subject to copyright.

In a statement, the company billed his tenure as one that allowed Fannie to build credible books-of-business, help more than 1 million homeowners finance their homes, and assist millions more in refinancing their loans.The announcement follows Ed Haldeman’s decision last fall to step down as CEO of “”Freddie Mac””:http://www.freddiemac.com/ in tandem with a larger leadership shakeup at the mortgage company that saw chairman John Koskinen and a number of other board members leave.Williams and Haldeman recently found themselves embroiled in scandals over multimillion-dollar bonuses they and eight other executives received last year.DeMarco, Haldeman, and Williams agreed to appear before the House Financial Services Committee in November to address outcry by lawmakers over their bonuses, which many criticized as excessive.The House voted to slash executive pay for GSE senior-level executives by reducing their annual salaries to just more than $200,000, approximately equal to the same pay grade for a ranking government official.
