Corporations are taking advantage of an opportunity to profit, nothing to do with bugs. If your assumptions are correct material pricing will come back dow to pre Covid-19 within the next year. My bet is any corporation and government related to this industry will continue to keep prices elevated now that people are comfortable taking it in the back end . I like many others are opting out of doing planned projects. Starting to realize I don’t really need to do the upgrades or changes I were planning. My bet is there will be a glut of materials and corporate earning will fall and corporations will raise prices again to make money and keep shareholders happy. All about profit.

When a project has proven its capacity, often on the back of a grant round gift, the Funds may bring it to the attention of individual donors for consideration. This policy determines the number and size of awards.”Projects seeking larger grant amounts (over €25,000) will not be processed through this grant round, according to the organisation. Such proposals will be considered on an individual basis for possible presentation to donors. There is no minimum grant but the average is €7,000.The new grants round opened on 1 February and will close on 31 March 2011. Applicants will be notified in June 2011. Applications will be considered under the Ireland Funds’ four themes.www.irlfunds.org Ireland Funds invites grant applications About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The Supreme Court, allowing the appeal filed by the State had set aside the High Court judgment. Later, the accused filed review petition which was allowed and the earlier order was recalled.The bench comprising Justices Ashok Bhushan and Indu Malhotra noted that the Veterinary Surgeon who examined the Turtle seized from him had identified it as ‘Indian Flap Shell’ and the scientific name “Lissemys Punctata”. whereas Item No.8, Schedule I Part II is about ‘Indian Soft-shelled Turtle (Lissemys punctata punctata)’. The court observed that, section 9 of the Act prohibits hunting of any wild animal under Schedule I, II, III and IV except as provided under Sections 11 and 12, that Sections 11 and 12 are the provisions where hunting is permitted by the permission of Chief Wild Life Warden, that in case a person hunts any of the wild animals which are included in 7 Schedule I to IV, it becomes an offence inviting the penalty under Section 51 of the Act.”A perusal of the letter given by the Veterinary Surgeon as extracted above indicates that Veterinary Surgeon has identified the Turtle as ‘Indian Flap Shell (Lissemy’s Punctata)’ whereas the Turtle which is included in Part II of Schedule I of the Act, 1972 is “Indian Soft-shelled Turtle (Lissemys punctata punctata).” Lissemys punctata is a species of which Lissemys punctata is infraspecies. Although Lissemys punctata is included in Part II of Schedule I of the Act, however, the Turtle which has been seized is not that which is included in Part II of Schedule I. In the facts of the present case, on the face of it, the Turtle seized is not included in Schedule I Part II and the Turtle having already been freed on the second day of its seizure, the High Court did not commit any error in quashing the criminal proceedings registered for Wild Life offences.”, the bench observed while upholding the High Court order.CASE: TITTY ALIAS GEORGE KURIAN vs. THE DEPUTY RANGE FOREST OFFICER [REVIEW PETITION (CRL.)

Aptian to Coniacian (Early-Late Cretaceous) palynostratigraphy of the Gustav Group, James Ross Basin, Antarctica


first_imgThe GustavGroup of the James Ross Basin, Antarctic Peninsula, forms part of a major Southern Hemisphere Cretaceous reference section. Palynological data, chiefly from dinoflagellate cysts, integrated with macrofaunal evidence and strontium isotope stratigraphy, indicate that the Gustav Group, which is approximately 2.6 km thick, is Aptian–Coniacian in age. Aptian–Coniacian palynofloras in the James Ross Basin closely resemble coeval associations from Australia and New Zealand, and Australian palynological zonation schemes are applicable to the Gustav Group. The lowermost units, the coeval Pedersen and Lagrelius Point formations, have both yielded early Aptian dinoflagellate cysts. Because the overlying Kotick Point Formation is of early to mid Albian age, the Aptian/Albian boundary is placed, questionably, at the Lagrelius Point Formation–Kotick Point Formation boundary on James Ross Island, and this transition may be unconformable. Although the Kotick Point Formation is largely early Albian on dinoflagellate cyst evidence, the uppermost part of the formation appears to be of mid Albian age. This differentiation of the early and mid Albian has refined the age of the formation, previously considered to be Aptian–Albian, based on macrofaunal evidence. The Whisky Bay Formation is of late Albian to latest Turonian age on dinoflagellate cyst evidence and this supports the macrofaunal ages. Late Albian palynofloras have been recorded from the Gin Cove, lower Tumbledown Cliffs, Bibby Point and the lower–middle Lewis Hill members. However, the Cenomanian age of the upper Tumbledown Cliffs and Rum Cove members, based on molluscan evidence, is not supported by the dinoflagellate cyst floras and further work is required on this succession. The uppermost part of the Whisky Bay Formation in north-west JamesRoss Island is of mid to late Turonian age and this is confirmed by strontium isotope stratigraphy. The uppermost unit, the Hidden Lake Formation, is Coniacian in age on both palaeontological and strontium isotope evidence. The uppermost part of the formation appears to be early Santonian based on dinoflagellate cysts, but strontium isotope stratigraphy constrains this as being no younger than late Coniacian. This refined palynostratigraphy greatly improves the potential of the James Ross Basin as a major Cretaceous Southern Hemisphere reference section.last_img read more
