Left in the cold? Evolutionary origin of Laternula elliptica a keystone bivalve species of Antarctic benthos

first_imgThe large, burrowing bivalve Laternula elliptica is an abundant component of shallow-water soft-substrate communities around Antarctica but its congeners are temperate and tropical in distribution and their phylogenetic relationships are obscure. A new molecular analysis of Laternulidae species shows that there are two distinct clades, one of Exolaternula species, E. spengleri and E. liautaudi, possessing a ligamental lithodesma and a larger clade of species lacking the lithodesma. Of the latter, Laternula elliptica is a sister taxon to temperate and tropical species, including those that live around the coasts of Australia from Tasmania to Darwin. It is suggested that L. elliptica was left isolated around Antarctica following the opening of the Tasman Gateway and initiation of the Circum-Antarctic Current as Australia drifted northwards following the final breakup of Gondwana. A further scenario is that as Australia moved closer to Asia, species spread into tropical habitats and more widely to the Red Sea and Japan. Exolaternula species have a likely Tethyan origin and the present-day range is from the Arabian Gulf, around southern Asia and as far north as southern Russia.last_img read more

Why we do what we do

first_img 13SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr In today’s environment of uncertainty, it is more important than ever to have relationships that you can count on to help bring about some sort of structure.  As with any successful relationship, communication, flexibility, and mutual benefit are key.  The Armed Forces Financial Network and Defense Credit Union Council have such a relationship that benefits not only each other but also the Member Participants that participate in both organizations.   DCUC and the Armed Forces Financial Network (AFFN) teamed up this summer to celebrate AFFN’s 35th Anniversary by offering DCUC members the opportunity to co-brand a special “Why We Do What We Do” video. The video captures what it means to be a defense credit union and serve the military community. It highlights the unique aspects of military life while showing that despite these differences, military members are still pursuing the same dreams as everyone else: a better life, a better country, and better tomorrow.In offering this free marketing tool, DCUC and AFFN recognized the important work defense credit unions do and celebrated their dedication to their communities. This video was a small way for DCUC and AFFN to say thank you to their members. To date, 64-member credit unions have taken advantage of the opportunity to co-brand.  Click here to watch “Why We Do What We Do.”   These defense credit unions have utilized the video in a variety of strategic and creative ways to promote what it means to serve their military community. The co-branded video has been shared on “About Us” pages, across social media, and in-branch lobbies. One credit union is even testing it for use as an external commercial in their local market area. The video continues to be a great way to reaffirm commitment to the defense community, promote defense credit unions, and attract new members.The defense credit union community makes a big difference to service members, veterans, civil service and their families every day. If your credit union serves the military community and is interested in learning more about the DCUC/AFFN difference, and learn more about becoming part of this long-term partnership, contact DCUC at [email protected] or AFFN at [email protected] to see how we can help you better Serve Those Who Serve Our Country.   This post is currently collecting data…center_img This is placeholder text last_img read more

Trump’s dead-enders organize capitol-steps rallies around the nation populated with extremists

first_imgThreats notwithstanding, however, there were only a handful of incidents of minor violence at the protests, including some involving Proud Boys. There was no shortage of incendiary rhetoric and threatening behavior, however.Even though Facebook deleted the “Stop the Steal” pages and events that were created on its platforms by Thursday, the groups nonetheless were successful in spreading the word that the protests were to occur in front of state capitol buildings around the country on Saturday. The shared theme at all of them was that the national media were lying, that Trump was the real winner of the election, and that Democrats, the “deep state,” and “fake news” were all conspiring to make the public think Biden had been elected—in other words, an alternate reality comprised entirely of groundless conspiracy theories.PHOENIX, ARIZONA - NOVEMBER 07: Supporters of President Donald Trump listen to the national anthem at a ‘Stop the Steal’ rally in front of the State Capitol on November 7, 2020 in Phoenix, Arizona. News outlets project that Joe Biden will be the 46th president of the United States after a victory in Pennsylvania with Kamala Harris to be the first woman and person of color to be elected Vice President. (Photo by Mario Tama/Getty Images)Trump supporters in Phoenix.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – “We just want them to know we won’t let them get away with anything. We want to make sure all the legal ballots are counted, and fairly,” said Travis Fillmore, 34, a military veteran from nearby Tempe, who was toting a rifle at the protest.“Arrest the poll workers!” the crowd chanted—while fenced away from the building’s entrance in a “free speech zone” created for them by Maricopa County sheriff’s deputies.Most of the gatherings featured dozens of Trump supporters at best. They also featured some of the extremist elements—including conspiracy-fueled QAnon cultists, thuggish Proud Boys, and armed militiamen—who have become seamlessly identified with the Trump campaign this year.- Advertisement – Probably the largest of them was in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania’s state capital—fittingly, since that state’s vote count provided Biden with his margin of victory on Saturday—where Proud Boys linked arms with unrepentant white nationalists to protest Trump’s loss. Christopher Mathias of HuffPost was there, and described it as a “heavily armed pity party”:Once assembled there, Rep. Dan Mueser (R-Pa.), a Trump fan widely believed to be eyeing a run for governor, took hold of a megaphone and spoke to the crowd about how the results of the election were illegitimate.He was surrounded by fascists. To his left, a man waved a flag for the anti-Semitic white nationalist movement known as America First. To his right, a man clad in black held a sign that read “Standing Back And Standing By For Our President” — a reference to when Trump, asked at a debate to condemn the Proud Boys, instead told them to “stand back and stand by.”Far-right extremists have been a fixture of Trump rallies over the last four years, but it’s still hard to overstate how many were in Harrisburg on Saturday. The place was crawling with them.This, too, was a common theme at the “Stop the Steal” rallies: As we saw with the various “Trump trains” and their overt thuggery in Texas, as well as at other “Trump caravans” throughout the campaign, the events provided an environment in which ostensibly mainstream Republicans commingled and joined arms openly with some of the most extreme elements of the radical right.  SALEM, OR - NOVEMBER 07: A Proud Boy displays a bandana with the phrase Stand Back, Stand By, a reference to President Trumps statements about the group during a "Stop the Steal" rally on November 7, 2020 in Salem, Oregon. Angry supporters of President Trump took to the streets across the country following reporting that President-elect Joe Biden had won the election. (Photo by Nathan Howard/Getty Images)A Proud Boy in Salem, Oregon.In Salem, Oregon, some of the “Save the Steal” demonstrators dressed in Proud Boys uniforms and masks as well as fighting garb were seen on video assaulting photographers and journalists while Oregon State Police stood by and did not intervene. Among the speakers at their event was Jo Rae Perkins, the QAnon cultist who was the failed Oregon Republican nominee against incumbent Democratic Senator Jeff Merkley. “This is an appeal to heaven,” Perkins said. “We need to pray for Trump, for his family and for his Cabinet.”Another Republican nominee—Michael Cross, who ran for Oregon attorney general and has lost by a similar 57-40 margin in his race as Perkins in hers—also spoke to the crowd, dressed in a leather biker jacket and spouting more conspiracism. “We don’t like what’s happening in our country and we don’t like what’s happening in our state, and we don’t like vote by mail,” Cross said.“I personally checked my own ballot status, and my ballot hasn’t even been counted yet, and Oregon is considered a blue state,” said an unidentified Trump supporter to KPTV. “Do you know how much that fears for me?”“And the amount of support Trump has everywhere you go is just overwhelming, and we didn’t see that with Biden, so it just doesn’t add up,” Carol Stewart said.In Colorado, protesters decided to move their demonstration 70 miles south from Denver down Interstate 25 to Colorado Springs because the capital city does not permit open carry, and the latter city does. Once there, news crews had no difficulty finding Trump supporters insisting that the election results were wrong.“This election’s being stolen,” one MAGA-hatted protester claimed. “It’s being hijacked, and that’s quite frustrating.”In Carson City, Nevada, there were more Proud Boys to be found causing trouble, many of them packing firearms as they chanted “Stop the Steal!” and “USA! USA!”A local reporter got an earful from a man in a camouflage hat with a yellow Gadsden-banner bandana over his face:“Why am I here,” he asked seemingly annoyed. “That’s a stupid question … I’m here because the fucking Pinkos are stealing the election … that’s what I’m doing here … it’s the Deep State in all those states where ballots for Biden showed up in a truck in the dark of the night in Philadelphia and Vegas … the whole thing is rigged, and we’re here to defend our president, that’s why I’m here.”In Boise, the camo-clad extremists again rubbed elbows with state GOP officials. “We are going to get Trump reelected,” Republican state representative Aaron von Ehlinger of Lewiston told the crowd. “It’s going to take some legal battles, but we will get it done.”Machele Hamilton, the Idaho GOP’s vice chair, echoed him, assuring attendees that “the Idaho Republican Party is 100% behind President Trump.”“We are supporting America and our Constitution,” said Diego Rodriguez, a Trump backer, told the Idaho Statesman. “All we want is a fair election.”In Lansing, Michigan—already the scene of multiple far-right protests featuring weapons and militiamen which later turned out to have been organizing grounds for would-be domestic terrorists, even before the election—an estimated 500 Trump supporters, largely mask-free, assembled on the Capitol steps and adjoining lawn to claim that the vote count in Michigan, and elsewhere, had been rigged in Biden’s favor. They offered no evidence, just baseless assertions.Decked out in stars and stripes, Genevieve Peters, 57, of Detroit told the Free Press that she doesn’t believe Trump lost the election. “We’re here to show our president we’re with him,” she said. “There’s 100% no chance he didn’t win.”Trump supporters sang a rendition of the Queen song “We Are the Champions,” the Lansing State Journal reported. They also chanted “four more years,” “lock her up,” and “stop the steal,” while sending Trump a message: “We love you!” and “We won’t stop!”A supporter of US President Donald Trump keeps a hand on his gun during a "Stop the Steal rally" in front of the residence of Minnesota Governor Tim Walz in St Paul, Minnesota, on November 7, 2020. - Democrat Joe Biden has won the White House, US media said November 7, defeating Donald Trump and ending a presidency that convulsed American politics, shocked the world and left the United States more divided than at any time in decades. (Photo by Kerem Yucel / AFP) (Photo by KEREM YUCEL/AFP via Getty Images)Trump supporters with long rifles outside the Governor’s Mansion in St. Paul, Minnesota.In Little Rock, Arkansas, heavily armed militiamen formed a crowd of about 50 demonstrators who chanted “Blue Lives Matter” and got into a shouting exchange with counter-demonstrators. However, the protest did not last long. There was a similarly short-lived protest in Des Moines, Iowa, and one in front of the governor’s mansion in St. Paul, Minnesota.The protest in Bismarck, North Dakota, attracted several hundred protesters who found no opposition. Among them were Jonathan Hallet, a western North Dakota pastor and his wife, Tyrene, who drove nearly  two hours to attend the “Stand with Trump” rally. “Democrats stole the election,” said Hallett. “Trump was cheated.”A man named Marty Beard carried a sign that read, “Give Me Trump or Give me Death.”“That’s what this means to me,” he said.There were pro-Trump rallies held in non-capital cities this weekend, including one in Vancouver, Washington. Trump fan Adam Schetler (“Donald Trump has my values and I’m ready for Donald Trump for four more years”) told KPTV that he still thinks Trump could win the presidency.“We are looking for a recount because it’s obvious there has been some fraudulent ballots come in and it’s really hard to believe a man that’s been in public office for somewhat of 50 years—who’s done nothing—now all of a sudden has overwhelming votes, the most in history ever—it’s too far-fetched,” said a Trump fan named James Hurst. At the voting-tabulation center in Phoenix, Arizona, where crowds of Trump supporters had attempted to interfere in ballot-counting procedures in the days after the election, fueled by a nonsense conspiracy theory that Republican ballots were being discarded due to the use of Sharpies, protesters lingered through Saturday evening.“This election has not been called!” shouted Jake Angeli, a regular at Trump rallies, who stood outside a tabulation center in Phoenix. “Don’t believe that lie! They got their hands caught in the cookie jar and we’re going to the Supreme Court!”“Trump always looks like he’s going to lose. And then he wins, “ Angeli said.- Advertisement –last_img read more

5 Tips for getting your video into GIFF 2015

first_imgFree Play MusicVimeo Music Store (choose Creative Commons/free)Computer apps: 3. Know the rules for submission Seriously. Don’t make “Thriller” your main theme song unless you have permission from the King of Pop himself. Though a particular song might suit your geocaching love story perfectly, the GIFF judges will regrettably but firmly have to chuck it back to you. And remember—any geocache featured in your film should follow all basic requirements for hiding a geocache. (Hint: no buried caches, folks!) Review the GIFF 2015 submission guidelines and contact [email protected] if you have any niggling questions. And check out these free music websites if you’re struggling to find appropriate tunes to use:Websites: A moment from GIFF 2014 finalist, “Spend a Little Time With You”.4. Make it visualShow, don’t tell! Film is visual medium—while you might love the sound of your voice, you’ll have your audience hanging on tenterhooks if you keep the voiceover and dialogue to a well-planned minimum. That being said, dialogue can still make or break a film, so be thoughtful about what you do include. This GIFF 2014 finalist film was able to do a lot with no dialogue at all.5. Quality over quantity The submission guidelines say it all: “Film length must not exceed 4 minutes (including credits).” That may not seem like a lot of video to write, shoot, and edit, but creating four minutes of absolute video gold is the challenge. So be discerning about what your audience gets to see. Make those four minutes the best four minutes of their week. Month! Year!Find out “How To Geocache in Thailand” from this GIFF 2014 finalist. [vsw id=”SmGMn7sPtE0″ source=”youtube” width=”620″ height=”445″ autoplay=”no”]Attention geocaching filmmakers! The deadline for submissions to the 2015 Geocaching International Film Festival is fast approaching (July 1, 2015). As you write, shoot, an edit your films, keep these 5 tips in mind. They’re straight from mouth of a GIFF judge. 1. Make it global Geocaching is an international game, and so is every GIFF audience. Try to show an element of the geocaching experience that people in different corners of the world can feel connected to. That can range from a tangible moment in the game—FTF hunt, anyone?—to something a little more abstract—like that feeling you get when you find the geocache after hours of searching…in the first spot you looked.2. Tell a story only you can tell There’s nothing wrong with your film being about a geocaching love story or a race to the FTF, but it’s exactly because these are such universal geocaching themes that you’ll need to work to make your film stand out from others. We have it on good authority that you are a unique person, so…make it personal! Show the GIFF audiences why this crazy/nerdy/wonderful hobby is your wacky/nerdy/wonderful hobby. Odds are, the things that matter the most about geocaching to you are some of the same things that matter the most to others. The perspective you use to show those things will be the catalyst for surprising and delighting your audience. This finalist from GIFF 2014 is an awesome example of this:[vsw id=”yvrBlIbXDW0″ source=”youtube” width=”620″ height=”545″ autoplay=”no”] Are you going to be in Seattle, watching GIFF 2015 finalists on the big screen with us?

Music Services Now Compete on Features: Check Out Rdio’s New iPhone App

first_img5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout Tags:#mobile#music#web marshall kirkpatrick The struggle between legal and illegal music online is over. Legal music has won. The major music labels have struck deals with ad and subscription supported streaming music services like MOG, Rhapsody, Spotify, Rdio and others that put a world of music at your fingertips – faster, easier, and more enjoyably than hunting for albums to pirate and at a price point low enough that the rational decision is now to pay for access to music. The only question is, who offers the best experience to pay for?I pay $10 each month for a subscription to Rdio, a web and mobile streaming service backed by the founders of Skype (among others). I’ve been very happy with it except for one big feature it was missing: recommendations. Today Rdio has launched a new version of its iPhone app and recommendations have finally arrived. Screenshots and some comparison between this and competing services below.How good are Rdio’s recommendations? I’m not sure yet. The company says recommendation is “at the heart of its service and is a core competency of the company.” That’s good, we’ll see how it works out for users. Now that music is cheap and almost everyone has access to the same libraries of music though, it’s things like quality of recommendation experience, discovery generally, artist information and music sharing that will be the primary points of contention. That’s not 100% true yet, there are still smaller labels that not everyone has cut deals with. Spotify, for example, has only 1 album by Arcade Fire. Rdio has 10. Spotify has 5 albums by Gillian Welch – Rdio has a zero. (Come on people, get it together, please!)Rdio’s recommendations look pretty good, especially after I hit refresh a few times. I like the new releases from this week, last week and two weeks ago, though hopefully those are vetted at least a little bit. Top albums and playlists are another nice discovery option. Screenshots of all of this are below.Rdio has said in the past that its primary differentiation in a crowded market is the social newsfeed of music suggestions based on your friends’ activities. I’ve found that utterly unhelpful though. I’ll keep trying, but I like the app even without using that.Right now I use Rdio to roll around town listening to music and through the Sonos wireless speaker system that company sent me to test. (How is it? The UX makes me jump up and down and clap, but I wish I could use Rdio’s own app through Sonos and my audio engineer buddy says the software had better be worth $400 because the speaker isn’t.)Then I’ve been using a test account on Spotify and of course Pandora to discover music. Sometimes some music blogs (Aurgasm, HypeMachine).Somebody’s probably going to solve all my music problems at once soon. Maybe it will be Rdio. I sure look forward to seeing all these services chase my $10 per month by competing on features, catalog and user experience!Check out these screenshots below. They sure look different from the previous version of the app – and even more different from the first leaked screenshots of this app that ReadWriteWeb posted before it launched in November. 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex…center_img Related Posts 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People…last_img read more

NAB 2019: Polar Pro’s New Peter McKinnon Variable ND Filter

first_imgAt NAB 2019, Polar Pro just announced one of the best variable ND filters on the market, and it’s already selling like hot cakes.Polar Pro is slowly becoming one of my favorite companies. As with Aputure and Blackmagic Design, it seems they’re doing this crazy thing where they listen to their customers and make products that actually help people. So, that being said, the new “Peter McKinnon” branded filters are, quite frankly, super dope. Regardless of whose name is on the product, if something looks awesome and is a genuinely solid piece of equipment, by all means take my money.The filter is a fused, quartz glass, variable ND filter with apparently the lowest refractive index currently available. Here’s what Polar Pro has to say about how they made them and what they can do:Control your shutter speed in ever-changing lighting conditions. The VND Peter McKinnon Edition has laser etched stop indicators which precisely align two fused quartz glass elements to control the amount of light entering your lens. The controlled stop range eliminates cross-polarization and vignetting so your run-and-gun content is produced the way you intend it to be.The stop indicators are pretty rad, and they can really help you get the shot you want — perfectly exposed and consistent (as all things should be).Also, as you can see from their display at NAB, the cover for the filters is rubberized, adding a nice layer of extra protection to the filter when you’re not using it.There are two filter strengths available. The 2-5 stop filter runs for $249, and the 6-9 stop filter will set you back around $299. Since they announced these filters only a few days ago, apparently orders have been through the roof. As you can see on the site, the first and second shipments have already sold out. So, get in line I guess? Honestly, I’d be willing to wait. These things look pretty rad, and I’m sure we’ll start to see some reviews and videos in the near future.Here’s McKinnon himself talking about the new filters.McKinnon makes a good case for why these filters are different — and why you should consider using them in general. It’s clear a lot of thought and time went into making these things, and at the rate they’re selling, it seems to have worked. Here are the official specs from Polar Pro:Available in 2-5 and 6-9 stop variationsPreset stop range eliminates any chance of cross polarizationZero vignetting down to 16mm focal length lensesPure Fused Quartz ensures superior optical clarity over any glass on the marketIncludes a DefenderSlim cover for fingerprint-free installation(Side note, we recently put out a video on using Polar Pro filters for your drone. We’re pretty proud of it, so check it out.)Top Image via Polar Pro.Looking for more NAB 2019 coverage?
