The Anatomy of Fear TAGSHurricane DorianHurricane Season 2019St. Johns River Water Management District Previous articleAdventHealth offers Free eCare available for Floridians during Hurricane DorianNext articleHurricane Dorian’s track shifts but Florida still at risk Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR What you can do: Maintain your stormwater system before Hurricane Dorian arrivesFrom the St. John’s River Water Management District  When hurricanes and other storms bring high volumes of rain in short periods of time, flooding can result. The St. Johns River Water Management District’s water control structures in the Upper St. Johns River Basin (USJRB) and Upper Ocklawaha River Basin (UORB) are important federal flood protection projects. Currently, both have ample water storage available.As Hurricane Dorian begins to bring heavy rainfall to Florida’s east coast, it is important to understand what these water control structures, as well as district-permitted stormwater systems, can and can’t do.Locks, spillways, pump stations, levees and canals in the headwaters of the St. Johns River in Brevard and Indian River counties (USJRB Project) and in the Harris Chain of Lakes in Lake County (UORB) are the district’s only structural controls of water levels. The district does not control water levels in the rest of the St. Johns River.The USJRB Project has proven itself several times over the past two decades, protecting the region from flooding during hurricanes Matthew in 2016 and Irma in 2017, as well as the unprecedented 2004 hurricane season. But as with any flood protection project, there are limits to the level of flood protection benefits and the areas benefited by the project.The USJRB Project does not reduce flooding in the river’s middle basin in east-central Florida, including lakes Monroe and Harney, nor further downstream in the river’s lower basin in north Florida. This is because tributaries such as the Econlockhatchee River drain much more water to the middle St. Johns River than the amount that can be drained from the headwaters. Also, middle basin tributaries do not have comparable flood control facilities as are used in the upper basin.The district also operates flood-control structures in the UORB — the Apopka-Beauclair Dam, Moss Bluff Dam, Harris Bayou Spillway, Nutrient Reduction Facility (NuRF) and the Burrell Dam.What you can doIf you are experiencing flooding, immediately contact your local government. Local governments are the primary entities responsible for emergency responses during storms, such as implementing state-of-emergency declarations, evacuations and rescue efforts during flood-related disasters.Understanding that water control structures do not address flooding in the middle or lower St. Johns River basins, the best time to prepare for the storm is before weather conditions begin to deteriorate. Maintenance of a neighborhood stormwater system will help homeowners be ready for copious rainfall associated with many tropical systems.Stormwater systems, like natural ponds or wetlands, help control flooding by slowing down surges and absorbing rainwater before it reaches water bodies. They also help filter out nutrients and sediments collected by stormwater as it runs over the earth’s surface before pollutants can reach natural waterways.Stormwater systems come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and forms. Very generally, some systems can handle 4–5 inches of rainfall, while others can handle up to 8–9 inches of rain.Maintenance of private stormwater systems permitted by the district or the Florida Department of Environmental Protection may be the responsibility of a homeowner association. In some planned subdivisions, the homeowner association may legally have responsibility for routine and periodic maintenance of the stormwater system.Maintenance may include clearing or cleaning inflow/outflow structures, removing nuisance and excess vegetation, repairing eroded slopes, and cleaning up trash and yard waste in your yard and gutters and around storm drains. The district’s website contains a section on stormwater systems and how they work that addresses the most effective methods of keeping stormwater systems working properly.About the St. Johns River Water Management DistrictSt. Johns River Water Management District staff are committed to ensuring the sustainable use and protection of water resources for the benefit of the people of the district and the state of Florida. The St. Johns River Water Management District is one of five districts in Florida managing groundwater and surface water supplies in the state. The district encompasses all or part of 18 northeast and east-central Florida counties. District headquarters are in Palatka, and staff also are available to serve the public at service centers in Maitland, Jacksonville, and Palm Bay. You have entered an incorrect email address!

Upstate N.Y. farmworkers’ May Day: ‘We will not bow down’

first_imgDairy workers and supporters gather in Lowville, N.Y. for May Day protest.Photo: Workers Center of Central New YorkLatino and Latina immigrant farmworkers held their first-ever May Day march in upstate New York at Marks Dairy Farms in Lowville on May 1. The dairy workers were protesting the violent beating and firing of Francisco, a worker who objected to being ordered to work on his only day off. They demanded dignity and respect, safe working conditions, and an end to wage theft and physical and verbal violence.About 40 people gathered to support them, some driving hundreds of miles from Brooklyn, Staten Island, Rochester, Syracuse, Marietta, Canton and elsewhere in New York. The action was called by the May 1st Agricultural Workers Committee, the Workers’ Center of Central New York and the Worker Justice Center of New York. Other individuals represented the Service Employees union, Syracuse Peace Council, Milk Not Bombs and Workers World Party.May 1st organizer José Canas spoke of May Day solidarity across borders: “As we march in Lowville, workers in my country of El Salvador are marching for their rights — our families are marching for our rights and theirs.” He also emphasized the value of dairy workers’ labor in creating mega-profits for transnational businesses.Marks Farms, with 5,000 cows and 50 workers, is one of the biggest of 5,600 dairy farms in New York. The state is fourth in U.S. milk production and first in yogurt production. The small town of Lowville is dominated by gleaming steel towers of the plant that is the largest maker of Kraft Philadelphia cream cheese in the U.S.Chanting “El pueblo unido jamás será vencido” (“The people united will never be defeated”), the crowd marched on dirt roads through the farm, past giant milking barns as huge tanker trucks thundered by. People then rallied near the farm office before presenting a letter of demands to management.‘Get together, speak up!’Francisco, still recovering from injuries, sent this message to the rally: “If the supervisors beat you up, scream at you or humiliate you, do something. You are working for your money. It is not a gift. Go in groups, get together, speak up.”One worker leader said, “We have gone through hunger, been through cold. We are not afraid because life has already turned its back on us. I will not bow down to management. When it comes to justice, I want to show my face.”New York farmworkers live in isolation, fearful of deportation raids, subject to unsafe working conditions and brutal work schedules. Some live in conditions of virtual indentured servitude. One rally participant knew a worker who could not leave the farm where he worked for four years.Farmworkers are specifically excluded from some basic U.S. worker rights like the right to a day off, the right to be paid overtime and the right to form a union.Rebecca Fuentes, director of the Workers’ Center of CNY, spoke forcefully of the organizing effort: “Workers have the right to assembly. So, law or no law, we will organize. We won’t wait for lawmakers!”Previous organizing has won hundreds of dollars in stolen wages for farmworkers, as well as improved compliance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration standards for  hazardous chemicals used in dairy work.Other upstate agricultural workers are also in motion. Five members of the Workers’ Center of CNY have filed a class-action lawsuit to recover stolen wages from an Oswego apple-processing company. Champlain Valley Specialty produces GrabApple snacks sold mostly to the New York City School District. The company was set up with local and state tax incentives and received Department of Defense contracts.The workers were fired after protesting wage theft when the company did not pay them for regular hours of work, overtime and work during lunch breaks. The plaintiffs ask other workers who experienced similar issues to theirs at Champlain Valley to contact them at the Workers’ Center of CNY to join the class-action suit.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

British Prime Minister Theresa May says the two agreed to start preliminary talks on a trade deal, but stressed that no deal would be signed until the U.K. exits the European Union. The two leaders agreed to set up joint working groups to start “scoping out” what can be achieved while waiting for the United Kingdom to leave the EU. The signal of bilateral talks continues Trump’s campaign pledge of one-on-one trade deals with other nations. Trump said he looked forward to working with the United Kingdom.U.K. Prime Minister May said both sides were discussing a “trade negotiation agreement” as the first step of crafting a trade deal between the two countries. The wording suggests there will be an official pledge between May and Trump to negotiate a trade agreement once the United Kingdom leaves the EU.Source: NAFB News Serivce Previous articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for January 31, 2017Next articleHow to Fine Tune Your Fertility Program Hoosier Ag Todaylast_img read more

Foraging ecology and interactions with fisheries of wandering albatrosses (Diomedea exulans) breeding at South Georgia

first_imgKnowledge about the areas used by the foraging wandering albatross, Diomedea exulans, its prey and overlap with longline fisheries is important information not only for the conservation of this species but also for furthering our understanding of the ecology of its prey. We attached satellite-tracking devices and activity recorders to wandering albatrosses between May and July of 1999 and 2000 (years of differing food availability around South Georgia) in order to assess inter-annual variation in the main foraging areas, association with oceanographic features (i.e. fronts, bathymetry), diet and interactions with fisheries. The overall foraging patterns of the tracked birds were similar in 1999 and 2000, ranging between southern Brazil (28degreesS) and the Antarctic Peninsula (63degreesS) and between the waters off Tristan da Cunha (19degreesW) and the Patagonian Shelf and oceanic waters south of Cape Horn (68degreesW) in the South Atlantic. In 1999, wandering albatrosses spent most time in sub-Antarctic oceanic waters, their trip durations were significantly longer and they fed on fish and cephalopods (53 and 42% by mass, respectively). In contrast, in 2000, they spent more time in Antarctic waters, foraging trips were shorter and the diet was predominantly fish (84% by mass). Wandering albatrosses were associated with the sub-Antarctic Front (SAF; both years), Subtropical Front (STF; in 1999) and the Tropical Front (TF; in 2000) suggesting that this species exploits prey concentrated at oceanic fronts. Fisheries discards also seemed to provide a very good source of food. Several fish species that are targeted (e.g. Patagonian toothfish, Dissostichus eleginoides) or are available as offal/discards from commercial fisheries (e.g. the macrourids, Antimora rostrata and Macrourus holotrachys) were mainly associated with the South Georgia shelf and the Patagonian Shelf, respectively. Wandering albatross foraging areas overlapped with longline fisheries in three different regions: around South Georgia, at the Patagonian Shelf and in oceanic waters north of 40degreesS. Females commuted more frequently to the Patagonian Shelf and to oceanic areas where longline fisheries were operating. Males, on the other hand, spent more time on the shelf/shelf slope of South Georgia where they were more at risk from the local Patagonian toothfish fishery, particularly in 2000. These results emphasize that inter-annual variation in foraging preferences could lead to increased incidental mortality of this vulnerable species. Potential evidence for this is provided by a satellite-tracked wandering albatross (male; 1.8-day trip), whose diet contained a Patagonian toothfish head and a longline hook, and who spent extensive time in the water (44% of the time wet; 0.3 days of the trip) where a Patagonian toothfish longline fishing vessel was operating.last_img read more

That is key to our success.” Vice Admiral Jones also thanked Admiral Zambellas for leaving a powerful legacy which is operationally focussed and hungry to succeed in all areas.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, December 5, 2012; Image: Royal Navy View post tag: New December 5, 2012 View post tag: Navy View post tag: welcomes View post tag: Navallast_img read more
