Plotting new direction, Liam Payne sells Monte Nido compound

first_imgLiam Payne and his Monte Nido home (Getty, Redfin)One Direction’s Liam Payne is steering a new course.The singer-songwriter sold his Spanish-style compound in the Santa Monica Mountains for about $10.2 million, according to the Los Angeles Times. That was $160,000 more than what he paid five years ago.Payne first listed the property in 2018, asking $14 million, but he also rented it before then. He dropped the price to $10.8 million over the summer.The property spans almost five acres and is anchored by a 9,700-square-foot main house. There is also a guesthouse, recording studio, pool house, and what the listing calls a “meditation house” on the property.The main house is typical of Spanish-style homes with wrought-iron accents, hardwood beams, and arched doorways. The home has five bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms.There is also a home theater, wine cellar, and billiards room, and a double-height library with a fireplace. A path leads from the back of the home over a footbridge and to the swimming pool and spa area.The remote estate is not far from Malibu, a particularly hot market in recent weeks. Several multimillion-dollar homes have sold in the last month or so there. Actress Gal Gadot is one of the most recent celebrities to buy there.

Where might we find evidence of a Last Interglacial West Antarctic ice sheet collapse in Antarctic ice core records?

first_imgAbundant indirect evidence suggests that the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) reduced in size during the LastInterglacial (LIG) compared to the Holocene. This study explores this possibility by comparing, for the firsttime, ice core stable isotope records for the LIG with output from a glacio-isostatic adjustment (GIA)model. The results show that ice core records from East Antarctica are remarkably insensitive to verticalmovement of the solid land motion driven by a simulated hypothetical collapse of the WAIS. However,new and so far unexplored sites are identified which are sensitive to the isostatic signal associated withWAIS collapse and so ice core proxy data from these sites would be effective in testing this hypothesis further.last_img

Morphology of juvenile instars of Ameronothridae (Acari: Oribatida)

first_imgJuvenile instars of four species of the oribatid mite family Ameronothridae— Alaskozetes antarcticus intermedius, Ameronothrus lineatus, Halozetes crozetensis and Pseudantarcticola georgiae—are described and illustrated in detail. Known juvenile instars of the family are compared, new diagnoses are given when possible, and identification keys to genera of known nymphs and larvae are presented.last_img

Carbon dynamics of the Weddell Gyre, Southern Ocean

first_imgThe accumulation of carbon within the Weddell Gyre, and its exchanges across the gyre boundaries are investigated with three recent full-depth oceanographic sections enclosing this climatically-important region. The combination of carbon measurements with ocean circulation transport estimates from a box inverse analysis reveal that deep water transports associated with Warm Deep Water (WDW) and Weddell Sea Deep Water dominate the gyre’s carbon budget, while a dual-cell vertical overturning circulation leads to both upwelling and the delivery of large quantities of carbon to the deep ocean. Historical sea surface pCO2 observations, interpolated using a neural network technique, confirm the net summertime sink of 0.044 to 0.058 ± 0.010 Pg C yr-1 derived from the inversion. However, a wintertime outgassing signal similar in size results in a statistically insignificant annual air-to-sea CO2 flux of 0.002 ± 0.007 Pg C yr-1 (mean 1998-2011) to 0.012 ± 0.024 Pg C yr-1 (mean 2008-2010) to be diagnosed for the Weddell Gyre. A surface layer carbon balance, independently derived from in situ biogeochemical measurements reveals that freshwater inputs and biological drawdown decrease surface ocean inorganic carbon levels more than they are increased by WDW entrainment, resulting in an estimated annual carbon sink of 0.033 ± 0.021 Pg C yr-1. Although relatively less efficient for carbon uptake than the global oceans, the summertime Weddell Gyre suppresses the winter outgassing signal, while its biological pump and deep water formation act as key conduits for transporting natural and anthropogenic carbon to the deep ocean where they can reside for long timescales.last_img read more

#PayDecker: Female hockey star gets $25K after social media campaign

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailBRENDAN SMIALOWSKI/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Social media exploded with outrage after a female hockey player at the NHL All-Star skills competition on Friday was not awarded prize money for an event she seemingly won because they say nobody officially recorded her time.Brianna Decker, a player for the U.S. national women’s hockey team, beat out even the male NHL athletes at the premier passing event during Friday’s competition, getting an unofficial, record-breaking time of 1 minute, 6 seconds, according to ESPN.Her time wasn’t broadcast at the event, however, and Leon Draisaitl, a player for the Edmonton Oilers, was credited with winning the event and receiving the $25,000 prize. His time was 1 minute, 9 seconds, ESPN reported.“She beat me. Wow. That is impressive. That’s really impressive. Good for her,” Draisaitl said after learning of Decker’s time following the event, according to ESPN.It wasn’t until a fan posted a clip of Decker’s performance on Twitter, showing her clearly as the winner, that social media exploded with outrage and the hashtag #PayDecker was born. While the NHL has not publicly commented on Decker’s time, the Canadian hockey products manufacturer CCM stepped in, lauding Decker’s time and saying they would pay her $25,000.“We understand the importance of recognizing female hockey players and are pleased to give you the 25,000$ that you deserve,” the company said in a statement.Decker thanked CCM via a tweet for “supporting the men’s and women’s game equally!”The NHL also announced after the event that they would donate $25,000 each for all four of the female hockey players that attended Friday night’s All-Star event to a charity or hockey program of their choice.Decker thanked fans on Twitter for the “generous donations” that poured in after the social media campaign, and even lauded the NHL for everything it “has done for women’s hockey and the sport as a whole this weekend.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
