nominee to "stop whining" and get on with his campaign The withering riposte in language usually used to scold a moody teenager came on the eve of the third and final presidential debate between Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton Obama discarded diplomatic decorum skewering the Republican mogul from the Rose Garden in front of visiting Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi Trump has ramped up conspiracies about America’s election system as his poll numbers have plummeted in the wake of sexual assault allegations against him He trails Clinton by around seven points nationwide and bookmakers in Europe —where political betting is legal —have already begun to pay out on a Clinton win President Barack Obama AP But the White House is increasingly concerned that Trump and his supporters will not recognize the election’s outcome plunging the country into a political crisis According to a poll by Politico and Morning Consult 41 percent of American voters including 73 percent of Republicans now believe the vote could actually be stolen from Trump "I have never seen in my lifetime or in modern political history any presidential candidate trying to discredit the elections and the election process before votes have even taken place It’s unprecedented" Obama said "If whenever things are going badly for you and you lose you start blaming somebody else Then you don’t have what it takes to be in this job" he added Addressing Trump’s allegations of "large scale voter fraud" Obama said "There’s no evidence that that has happened in the past or that there are instances in which that will happen this time" "I’d advise Mr Trump to stop whining and go try to make his case to get votes" ‘Final shot’ Trump and Clinton jetted in separately Tuesday to Las Vegas the entertainment capital in the Nevada desert ahead of their final debate Wednesday With three weeks until the 8 November election it may be Trump’s last chance to make a positive mark on millions of voters Campaigning Tuesday in Colorado a slightly subdued Trump indicated his scorched-earth tactics would continue "We’ve only just begun to fight believe me" he said "This is our final shot folks" he told a rally in Grand Junction Polls giving Clinton the lead were inaccurate he insisted In fact "they’re sort of good" for the Trump campaign "We are going to have one of the greatest victories in political history" he predicted excoriating the US media for being "an extension of the Hillary Clinton campaign" "The press has created a rigged system and poisoned the minds of the voters" he said "Either we win this election or we lose the country" Trump doubled-down on his vote rigging claims saying "voter fraud is all too common" ‘Watch Philadelphia’ His dark call to monitor polling stations in cities with large populations of African Americans who overwhelmingly favor Clinton over Trump could be interpreted as pre-election intimidation "If nothing else people are going to be watching on 8 November" he told Colorado supporters "Watch Philadelphia Watch St Louis Watch Chicago" Experts and Republican elected officials have denounced Trump for accusations of voter fraud prompting the nominee to turn on his own party He went a step further Tuesday calling for term limits for every member of Congress: 12 years in the US Senate and six in the House of Representatives But Clinton’s campaign believes Trump’s hot rhetoric has helped Democrats —not only by galvanising supporters but also shifting undecided voters to their camp "We know that he thought that strategy of scorched earth would depress our vote but if anything we have found that it’s helped to motivate our voters" Clinton communication’s director Jennifer Palmieri said Democrats are beginning to target traditionally Republican states in a bid to run up the score and help win legislative races that could decide who controls Congress On Thursday First Lady Michelle Obama will campaign in Arizona which has not voted Democratic since Bill Clinton’s landslide win against Bob Dole in 1996 Tom Lazzaro a 45-year-old who owns a real estate company in Colorado said he worried about electoral fraud "If there’s a lot of red states that suddenly turn blue I’m going to really question that" he told AFP at Trump’s rally in Colorado Springs But retiree Mike Bergst a Trump supporter said the nominee’s responsibility was to defeat Clinton fair and square "He needs to win the election bottom line whether it’s rigged or not" said 60-year-old Bergst "If he loses I’m not going to go around saying it was fixed" Manchester United

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho gestures during their Europa league tie against Feyenoord AP AFP Sports picks out the best of the action on matchday one: Feyenoord sink United Jose Mourinho’s reluctant return to the Europa League ended in embarrassment as Tonny Vilhena fired Feyenoord to a 1-0 win over Manchester United in their Group A opener in Rotterdam Mourinho sent out a much-changed line-up that could not prevent United slipping to a second consecutive defeat after their painful loss to bitter rivals Manchester City in the Premier League With only David de Gea Paul Pogba and Eric Bailly retained from the side beaten by City it was little surprise to see United deliver a disjointed performance Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team had swept to the top of the Dutch league with five successive victories and they made their lethargic opponents pay when they got the only goal with 11 minutes left Exposed down the right flank by Nicolai Jorgensen’s run that beat the offside trap

to have handled the ball in the box when it struck his hand Charlie Austin tucked away the spot-kick after just five minutes and then the striker headed in from a delicious outside-of-the boot cross from Cuco Martina to give the Saints a 2-0 half-time lead Southampton easily held on in a drab second half and substitute Jay Rodriguez — on for Austin — stabbed home in injury time to seal a comfortable night’s work Dundalk produce more heroics Manchester United may have lost in the Netherlands but Irish champions Dundalk came away with a 1-1 draw from their trip to AZ Alkmaar They looked to be heading for a defeat at the AFAS Stadion after Stijn Wuytens bravely headed AZ into a 61st-minute lead Wuytens took a punch in the face from Dundalk goalkeeper Gary Rogers as he attacked the ball and needed lengthy treatment before being taken off There looked to be no way back for Dundalk after captain Stephen O’Donnell was sent off for a second yellow but substitute Ciaran Kilduff netted the equaliser with a minute to go in their Group D opener It was a fine result for Stephen Kenny’s side who lost to Legia Warsaw in the Champions League play-offs Next up for them is a meeting with Maccabi Tel-Aviv in Dublin Zenit’s stunning comeback The performance of the night came in the other game in the group as former UEFA Cup winners Zenit St Petersburg stormed back from three goals down with less than a quarter of an hour remaining to beat Maccabi Tel-Aviv 4-3 in Israel The hosts had appeared to be on easy street as two goals by Haris Medunjanin either side of a Vidar Orn Kjartansson header had them 3-0 in front But Russian international Alexander Kokorin pulled one back on 77 minutes before Eli Dasa was red-carded for Maccabi Substitute Mauricio further reduced the deficit and Giuliano equalised on 86 minutes leaving plenty of time for the Montenegrin Luka Djordjevic to score the winner in injury time with a diving header Dream start for Sassuolo While Inter

Maya Sherpa is the first woman from Nepal to complete numerous peaks including Mt Himlung Khan Tengri in Kirgiztan Baruntse Ama Dablam Pumori and Cho Oyu among others Top News She may have successfully completed many challenging summits in the past few years but back home in Patle Ripal — a remote village in district Okhaldhunga in Nepal — the family of 37-year-old woman mountaineer and trekker Maya Sherpa is often advised by the villagers against allowing her to continue the ‘dangerous and risky activity’ However when it comes to mountaineering and trekking Sherpa chooses to go by her guts and not by the standards set by the society Hailing from a region where not many women choose mountaineering as a hobby or career Sherpa has held her own and has several ‘firsts’ to her credit Other than being the first Nepalese woman to have climbed Everest thrice so far (2006 2007 and 2016) she is also the first woman from Nepal to complete numerous peaks including Mt Himlung 7126m (2016) Khan Tengri in Kirgiztan 7010m (2008) Baruntse 7125m (2009) Ama Dablam 6812m (2003) Pumori 7145m (2004) and Cho Oyu 8201m (2004) among others Watch What Else Is Making News: “Although initially I started as a trekking guide later on I got the opportunity to participate in some mountaineering expeditions When I succeeded in completing the peak Mt Ama Dablam in 2003 I got the confidence of pursuing it further” says Sherpa who was in the city for the inauguration of a trekking and mountaineering store She has done basic and advanced climbing training courses organised by Nepalese Mountaineering Association (NMA) Interestingly she has also dabbled in weightlifting in the past and has bagged gold medal in Nepal National Weightlifting Games in 2003 Talking about her first successful climb – Mt Ama Dablam – Sherpa says “The summit was quite difficult and required technical expertise At that time I did not have any equipments and climbing tools too I had to borrow old equipments from friends and other climbers However despite all this when I managed to do it and was later felicitated for my accomplishment in Kathmandu I was filled with confidence that I can try other peaks too” Among the peaks that she has climbed so far the mountaineer says that K2 – also known Mount Godwin-Austen or Chhogori – was the most challenging K2 is the second highest mountain in the world and comes with unpredictable weather she says “When we started it was quite hot – 45 degrees celsius – later it became colder What made it further difficult to climb was that ice was melting very fast resulting in rocks falling as well as avalanches” recollects Sherpa who completed the climb in 50 days in 2014 She admits that unlike India where the number of women taking up trekking and mountaineering are increasing at an impressive rate in Nepal it isn’t the same She is unsure if it is lack of interest or simply fear of the mountains Though Sherpa’s parents and her husband who is also a climber support her a lot in her adventurous endeavour she admits that there are times when people discourage her family “Although people of my village and district are proud of my achievement given the risk involved they are scared for my life and say that ‘one can’t be lucky all the time or what if you meet a serious accident’” explains Sherpa who has set her eyes on her next target – Mt Kanchenjunga the third highest mountain in the world While others may think that given her age (37) Sherpa may let go off her passion for climbing sooner or later she thinks otherwise “One’s age

Sensitivity of a Greenland ice sheet model to atmospheric forcing fields

first_imgPredicting the climate for the future and how it will impact ice sheet evolution requires coupling ice sheet models with climate models. However, before we attempt to develop a realistic coupled setup, we propose, in this study, to first analyse the impact of a model simulated climate on an ice sheet. We undertake this exercise for a set of regional and global climate models. Modelled near surface air temperature and precipitation are provided as upper boundary conditions to the GRISLI (GRenoble Ice Shelf and Land Ice model) hybrid ice sheet model (ISM) in its Greenland configuration. After 20 kyrs of simulation, the resulting ice sheets highlight the differences between the climate models. While modelled ice sheet sizes are generally comparable to the observed one, there are considerable deviations among the ice sheets on regional scales. These deviations can be explained by biases in temperature and precipitation near the coast. This is especially true in the case of global models. But the deviations between the climate models are also due to the differences in the atmospheric general circulation. To account for these differences in the context of coupling ice sheet models with climate models, we conclude that appropriate downscaling methods will be needed. In some cases, systematic corrections of the climatic variables at the interface may be required to obtain realistic results for the Greenland ice sheet (GIS).last_img

Re-imagining Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom – Welcome to Weir’s Digital Mine

first_imgHands up – who enjoyed “Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom” movie? I don’t know about you, but my favorite scene was the cart chase down the mine tunnel with the baddies in hot pursuit! When we picture a working mine, we see images like those depicted in the movie – deep caverns, tough conditions, workers wearing mining hats with head lamps, tram tracks and heavy machinery.Of course, some of those stereotypical images are based on reality but did you know that technology is now being used to monitor remote mining equipment in some of the world’s most challenging industrial environments, allowing experts to make more informed decisions, based on data?Leveraging technology down the minesTake one of the world’s largest engineering companies, The Weir Group. A global market leader, Weir provided trusted technology and services to help make mining operations more productive and profitable. For example, the company designs and manufactures sophisticated machinery involved in dewatering the mines, crushing and grinding rock as well as classifying, separating and transporting materials. As you can imagine, this is high-value, mission-critical equipment – if anything goes down for whatever reason, the mine may have to stop operations, which has obvious significant cost implications for customers.Predictive maintenanceThe good news is that by using the Internet of Things and Dell Gateways, Weir can now monitor the condition of the equipment second by second and help operators predict when maintenance should take place. The end-customer gains better insights about the likely timing of machinery servicing and the need for replacement parts, which results in increased uptime plus more informed capital expenditure planning. Win-win all round!Excited about the potential of IoTHow did this heavy engineering and technology partnership begin? Established over 150 years ago, Weir places a huge focus on innovation and is constantly looking to develop new and more efficient ways of working. Back in 2013, the company was already exploring the potential of the IoT and had designed and produced a prototype platform with sensors to digitally connect its field assets.A global partnershipWeir was so impressed with the initial test results that it wanted to move to mass production. However, the company was aware that gaining worldwide regulatory and safety certification in 120 countries would take time and knew that it would benefit from identifying a world class IT partner. Weir enlisted Dell Technologies OEM & IoT as its global partner to manufacture the units, simplify the development process, handle logistics and provide support.A modular, cost-effective solutionOur solution for Weir is designed, customized and built in a modular fashion. A relatively small number of blocks can be configured into many different solutions – all fully tested and certified for every country of operation. The customer gets consistency, a scalable, modular platform, built on open standards, using cost-effective, off-the-shelf compute blocks that can be used across all its business divisions. We manage the entire program from initial order and sourcing of third-party components through manufacturing, customization, delivery and post-sales support.Digitizing heavy mechanical machineryWhile I can’t promise you a cart chase through the mines like the movie, I believe that Weir’s technology solution – built on Dell Technologies OEM & IoT, Intel and Microsoft infrastructure – is just as exciting. The solution changes how Weir interacts with assets in the field, delivers increased efficiencies and opens the potential for even more innovative products and services. It’s part of Weir’s digital journey and is transforming how the company serves its mining, oil, gas, infrastructure and industrial customers.According to Weir, the internet of things offers a powerful competitive advantage, which will help drive its future growth. And, there’s more to come. Read what my colleague Bryan Jones has to say about the merging of IoT and Artificial Intelligence. Are you using IoT to transform your business?
