Survey of magnetosonic waves and proton ring distributions in the Earth’s inner magnetosphere

first_imgFast magnetosonic waves can lead to the local acceleration of electrons from ∼10 keV up to a few MeV on a timescale of 1–2 d and may play an important role in radiation belt dynamics. Here we present a survey of wave and particle data from the Combined Release and Radiation Effects Satellite (CRRES) to determine the global morphology of the waves as a function of magnetic activity, and to investigate the role of proton rings as a potential source mechanism. The intensity of fast magnetosonic waves in the frequency range 0.5 f LHR < f < f LHR increases with increasing magnetic activity suggesting they are related to periods of enhanced convection and/or substorm activity. They are observed at most magnetic local times (MLT) outside the plasmapause but are restricted to the dusk sector inside the plasmapause. The MLT distribution of low energy proton rings (E R E A ) required for instability closely matches the distribution of magnetosonic waves on the dusk side, both inside and outside the plasmapause, suggesting that low energy proton rings are a likely source of energy driving the waves. However, intense magnetosonic waves are also observed outside the plasmapause on the dawn-side that do not satisfy (E R > E A ). Although proton rings with E R > 30 keV could drive the instabilities, the source of these waves is yet to be properly identified. Since fast magnetosonic waves can accelerate electrons we suggest that they may provide a significant energy transfer process between the ring current and the outer electron radiation belt.last_img read more

Military tech for Finsbury cake studies

first_imgFinsbury Food Group is testing technology used in the hunt for Osama Bin Laden to improve its cakes.Lightbody, a subsidiary of the firm, has hooked up with boffins at Strathclyde University and will be using hyperspectral imaging to inspect its cakes.Hyperspectral imaging captures the entire light spectrum and helps to decipher the chemical makeup of the things surveyed. US troops had it mounted on helicopters when they attacked the compound in which Bin Laden was finally found.Using the camera and complex mathematics, researchers can then predict the shelf-life of cakes.Ian Chree, director at Lightbody’s Hamilton site, told The Grocer: “We could potentially allocate a numerical value to the cake eating quality over life. This analysis could prove invaluable.”last_img

Attracting college students to your credit union

first_img continue reading » The transition from high school to college is an exciting change for millions of Americans every year. In a lot of ways, the move symbolizes the transition from childhood to being an adult. There are new responsibilities to take care of, but also new friends to be made and new experiences to be had. For credit unions, a college campus presents a different type of opportunity. While credit union executives are not concerned with rushing sororities, attending football games or cramming for exams as students, they should still see room to grow their organization. A campus gives a credit union the chance to recruit young members and help them become financially independent – a step that could lead to extended loyalty down the road.In the fall of 2014, around 21 million students attended American colleges and universities, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. Students can be a valuable resource, and attracting a good handful of them to a credit union will have benefits for years to come.center_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Letting it go

first_imgHe managed the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 70’s and 80’s, and guided the Buccos to a World Series championship in 1979. I grew up a fan of all things Pittsburgh, and I worshipped the Pirates…then known as the Lumber Company.I read an article about Tanner recently. One of the best parts of growing up is learning more about the heroes of your youth. And it is all the sweeter when they turn out to be stand-up guys. In the article, Phil Garner, who played second base for those Pirates, spoke about Tanner.He never met a day he didn’t like, Garner said. His famous deal was you could get beat 15-0 in the worst conditions under the sun -snowing, sleeting and hailing -and he’d come in after the game and say it was great. He’d say, just think what else we could be doing? Nothing else is as good as playing baseball. We’d say, Yeah, right, Chuck, but his attitude permeated everybody’s spirit.Chuck loved life every day. You know when you saw Chuck Tanner there wasn’t going to be any sourpuss. No matter what he was doing in his life, he put it aside and was happy to see you.Just how optimistic was Tanner? During the 1979 World Series, the Pirates fell behind the Baltimore Orioles three games to one. Clearly, the Pirates were in big trouble. Before game five started, Tanner learned that his mother had passed away. She had suffered a stroke weeks earlier, and her health had deteriorated. I can only imagine how he felt. Before the game started, Tanner gathered the team together.My mother was a great Pirates fan, he was reported to have told his team before Game 5. She knows we’re in trouble, so she went upstairs to get some help.The Buccos went on to win three games in a row, and win the World Series. So, here’s to the optimists.  Here’s to those who let go of the bad, and get to work.  So, a question for you all.  When you hit a rough patch, how do you power through? How do you maintain that positive outlook? 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Anthony Demangone Anthony Demangone is executive vice president and chief operating officer at the National Association of Federal Credit Unions (NAFCU). Demangone oversees day-to-day operations and manages the association’s education, membership, … Web: https://www.cuinsight.com/partner/nafcu Details It is easy to smile when you’re winning. When the ball bounces your way. Success puts a skip in your step. You have an extra dose of patience, and you glow with self-confidence.Everyone loves being around a winner.But winning streaks end. Bad days are always a part of life, and you’ll have them as a manager.String a few bad days together, and those smiles can be hard to find. That skip in your step? Gone.But not everyone. There are some folks who push through adversity with a smile. It isn’t the smile of ignorance. Rather, it’s the smile of a professional who knows it is time to roll up one’s sleeves and get to work.I’ve always been impressed by leaders who confront those bad days, and simply shrug them off. They let go of the negativity and stress, and focus on fixing the problems before them. Good or bad, these leaders don’t change. That steadiness can serve as a wonderful foundation for the rest of the team.And since it is baseball season, I’ll throw out an old name – Chuck Tanner.last_img read more
