Signatures of dual scaling regimes in a simple avalanche model for magnetospheric activity

first_imgRecently, the paradigm that the dynamic magnetosphere displays sandpile-type phenomenology has been advanced, in which energy dissipation is by means of avalanches which do not have an intrinsic scale. This may in turn imply that the system is in a self-organised critical (SOC) state. Indicators of internal processes are consistent with this, examples are the power-law dependence of the power spectrum of auroral indices, and in situ magnetic field observations in the earth’s geotail. However substorm statistics exhibit probability distributions with characteristic scales. In this paper we discuss a simple sandpile model which yields for energy discharges due to internal reorganisation a probability distribution that is a power-law, whereas systemwide discharges (flow of “sand” out of the system) form a distinct group whose probability distribution has a well defined mean. When the model is analysed over its full dynamic range, two regimes having different inverse power-law statistics emerge. These correspond to reconfigurations on two distinct length scales: short length scales sensitive to the discrete nature of the sandpile model, and long length scales up to the system size which correspond to the continuous limit of the model. The latter are anticipated to correspond to large-scale systems such as the magnetosphere. Since the energy inflow may be highly variable, the response of the sandpile model is examined under strong or variable loading and it is established that the power-law signature of the large-scale internal events persists. The interval distribution of these events is also discussed.last_img read more

Two Sanglah Hospital nurses placed in isolation after developing fever, cough

first_imgThe move, he added, was simply a precautionary measure.“They are now in good condition.”Following the increasing number of patients under COVID-19 observation at the hospital, Sudana said, the medical team had had to work harder. “We have a limited team, so they are all very tired,” he added.Read also: Four Seasons Resort Bali quarantines 54 staffers as precaution against COVID-19Sanglah Hospital has asked the Bali Health Agency for more nurses from other hospitals in Indonesia. “We have tried to add the number of personnel in our team. But it has not been enough,” Sudana said.The hospital requires 36 nurses to handle patients under observation for COVID-19 but currently has only 20. “We’ve asked for 16 more nurses, so as not to overtire our team,” said Sudana. Two nurses working at Sanglah Hospital in Denpasar, Bali, have been placed in the hospital’s isolation ward after showing symptoms of COVID-19. The two nurses came down with a fever and experienced coughing. Hospital management decided to isolate them as they had had contact with Case 25, reportedly a British woman, who had died of COVID-19 on Wednesday. “They have a history of handling the patient with COVID-19,” Sanglah Hospital director Wayan Sudana said on Thursday. He suspects, however, that the two nurses were simply overworked from handling a rise in patients placed under observation for the new coronavirus.Read also: ‘We didn’t know’: Bali authorities in the dark as COVID-19 patient dies on resort island“As [our] workload here has increased.

Taiwo Awoniyi- Back at Mouscron with a Bang

first_imgAfter signing for Liverpool, he was immediately loaned out to FSV Frankfurt. He made his debut for the club the following year.In August 2016, Awoniyi went on another loan spell at NEC Nijmegen in Holland and it was another loan spell the following year to Royal Excel Mouscron in Belgium, scoring nine goals in 16 matches.On 17 July 2018, Awoniyi signed a new long-term deal with Liverpool and on 23 July of the same year, he was sent on a season-long loan to another Belgian club, KAA Gent. He failed to score a single goal for the club after five months.In January this year, his loan to Genk was cut short, and Awoniyi was loaned to Mouscron again.At Mouscron, Awoniyi, showed early signs of returning to the top scoring form he had with the club last season, as he made the best of his second debut with a well-taken goal for the club. The ex-youth international showed his quality in his first game with aplomb.He put aside the woes he faced at Gent, to romp home Mousconr’s match-winner against KV Oostende.Though, Awoniyi failed to score a single league goal in 16 appearances with Gent, he has hit the ground running on a familiar hunting ground in Mouscron.His effort helped Mouscron snatch a 2-1 home win that took them up to 14th on the table with 20 points from 22 matches, six points clear of relegation spot and Awoniyi’s reaction was overwhelming.“I am extremely happy to start so well in my first game back at Royal, and that my goal helped us win this important match,” Awoniyi posted.Late Super Eagles Coach Stephen Keshi once gave the U-20 striker the green light to lead the Super Eagles’ attack with the hope that he can bring his eye for goal to the senior team. “I gave Awoniyi his first call up to the Super Eagles sometimes ago because I know that he has the quality of a goal poacher who can deliver the goals when needed, but playing for the age-grade national teams is different from the Super Eagles.“Awoniyi is young and talented and has the quality of a good striker. So, who says he can’t lead the Eagles attack? He just needs to be ready for the task and show it on the field of play which I believe the boy is capable of doing,” late Keshi said.If Awoniyi continues with this form at Mouscron, perhaps, he would get a permanent deal at the club. Even Liverpool may come looking for him. For now, he has to remain focused.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram After Nigeria crashed out in the second round against Germany at the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup, the lackluster performance of the Flying Eagles did not deter European teams from scrambling for the signature of a member of the squad – Taiwo Awoniyi. He stood out of the lot and immediately became the toast of most European clubs. Prior to the 2015 U-20 World Cup, Awoniyi also had a scintillating performance for the Golden Eaglets at the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup held in the United Arab Emirates. However Awoniyi still struggling to actualise his potential in EuropeAfter the 2015 U-20 World Cup, Awoniyi was courted by Porto, Sporting Lisbon and Benfica, but he briefly settled for Swedish club, Kalmar. The young Nigerian trained with the first team on his arrival in Sweden. But he did not sign any professional contract with them.The product of Imperial Academy, Odogbolu, Ogun State, eventually signed for English Premier league club, Liverpool, on August 31, 2015, for a fee of around £400,000. Four years on, Awoniyi is yet to blossom to the star he was touted to be.last_img read more

DONEGAL MAN ARRESTED FOR HYDE PARK BOMBING IS PEACE WORKER

first_imgThe Donegal man arrested in connection with the notorious Hyde Park bombings has been working on a project to bring Republicans and Loyalists together.John Downey, a married father from Ards, Creeslough is in police custody after being arrested at Gatwick Airport.But Donegal Daily has learned that Downey, who is originally from Clare but has lived locally for more than 30 years, works with Abhaile Aris. Downey works as an Outreach Worker with the Letterkenny-based organisation which aims to help ex-prisoners and people displaced by the conflict in the North.He is close friends with MLA Pat Doherty who lives in nearby Carrigart.As well as a background in aquaculture, Downey is regarded as a very committed community worker.His friend and colleague at Abhaile Aris, Cllr Gerry McMonagle, said he cannot understand why Downey has been arrested.Cllr McMonagle, revealed how Downey has been to England on several occasions and was never interviewed or interfered with by police.“I simply have to ask “why?” This is a disgrace what has happened and it makes a mockery of the Good Friday Agreement.“John Downey has been committed to the Peace Process for several years and has worked closely with both sides of the community.“He has worked with the loyalist community in Northern Ireland in developing the Peace Process.“The British Government cannot have it both ways. They are either committed to the Peace Process of they are not,” he said.DONEGAL MAN ARRESTED FOR HYDE PARK BOMBING IS PEACE WORKER was last modified: May 23rd, 2013 by StephenShare 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:CreesloughHyde Park bombingsJohn Downeylast_img read more

Half-time: Chelsea 1 Liverpool 1

first_imgPhilippe Coutinho equalised for Liverpool in the final seconds of the first half at Stamford Bridge, where Ramires had put Chelsea ahead after just four minutes.Ramires, who signed a new four-year contract this week, got in front of Alberto Moreno to head home Cesar Azpilicueta’s left-wing cross – his fourth goal of the season.The Brazilian lined up in midfield alongside John Mikel Obi, with Cesc Fabregas dropped to the substitutes’ bench where he was joined by Nemanja Matic, who was left out despite being available again after a ban.Diego Costa was passed fit for the Blues, having hobbled off during the midweek defeat at Stoke after taking a knock to his ribs.Liverpool on the other hand are playing without a recognised striker but have looked a threat and Asmir Begovic had to be alert to deny Adam Lallana after the Reds midfielder had been found by James Milner’s cross.Begovic also gathered a header from Lucas – again after a cross by Milner – as Jurgen Klopp’s side continued to press.But the Chelsea keeper was beaten when Coutinho collected Roberto Firmino’s pass and cleverly evaded Ramires before curling into the far corner despite John Terry’s desperate attempt to block the shot.Chelsea: Begovic; Zouma, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Mikel, Ramires; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Costa.Subs: Amelia, Baba, Matic, Fabregas, Kenedy, Falcao, Remy.Liverpool: Mignolet, Clyne, Skrtel, Sakho, Moreno, Lucas, Can, Milner, Lallana, Coutinho, Firmino.Subs: Bogdan, Lovren, Benteke, Allen, Ibe, Teixeira, Randall.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Pre-Production Tips: How and Why to Break Down a Script

first_imgLine the ScriptThe first step in breaking down a script is to separate it into filmable scenes. This is called “lining the script,” and it’s quite easy when things are properly formatted. First, I’ll divide scenes via the scene headings or slug lines. Next, I’ll break each page down into eights. Dividing each page by eighths helps me figure out the timing and scheduling of each scene, and the film as a whole. Since one page of a screenplay is generally translated as one minute of screen time, using eighths just provides extra precision.The beauty of using StudioBinder is that it’ll automatically do this step for you. When I go to the breakdowns section, I can see that each scene is already separated by scene heading and measured by eighths. For example, scene thirteen of my script comes in at 4/8, which is half a page in length.Isolate the Production ElementsWith the script properly broken into scenes and divided by eighths, I’m now ready to isolate all of the production elements. StudioBinder makes this incredibly easy in the breakdowns section via tagging.To tag an element, I simply need to highlight then select a category. Elements include anything that’s going to be onscreen, including cast members, props, VFX, makeup, set dressing, etc. For scene thirteen, I have a number of elements:ELI — cast memberSunglasses — costumePhone — propJANE — cast memberBlinking Marker — VFX shotMAN — cast memberEach element has its own color code, and I can add categories as needed. If you’re doing this by hand, you’d simply use different highlighters or pens.Create the Breakdown Summary SheetOnce I have all of the elements isolated, I can now put together a breakdown sheet. With this step, I’m essentially categorizing and listing out all of the elements from the breakdown for each particular scene. Tagging the elements with colors makes this step extremely easy.Again, StudioBinder automates this step. It allows me to quickly view all of the elements, print out scene breakdown reports, and even prepare sides for cast and crew members. Check out the simple breakdown of scene thirteen below. All of the elements are now listed and categorized by color, making it clear what’s needed on the shoot date.When I’m finished, this report will allow me to quickly and easily see everything I need to think about and have prepared, leading up to a shoot day. With my script breakdown in hand, I’m now ready to move on to the next stages of pre-production.Interested in the track we used to make this video?“Sunny Destination” by Vincent ToneLooking for more on working with scripts?

Since that’s done, I’m now ready to break down the script. So, why do we need to do this?Well, the breakdown helps a film crew prepare for production. With a proper breakdown, a production team can isolate all the necessary elements, put together a shooting schedule, create a shot list, and generate script sides.You can do this by hand, but remember: it’s 2019 — computers exist. There are many tools available to help facilitate this, but I’ll be using StudioBinder for this tutorial. Now, let’s take a closer look at how to do this.last_img read more
