Global surface-temperature responses to major volcanic eruptions

first_imgThe impacts of pollution resulting from large explosive volcanic eruptions on the atmospheric heat budget and planetary albedo are not in doubt1,2. However, the effects of volcanic aerosols on the surface climate are less clear and still controversial3,4. In a previous study5 it was shown that significant surface cooling occurs over the landmasses of the Northern Hemisphere in the first few months after a major eruption in that hemisphere. Here we extend that work using new surface-air temperature compilations based on land and marine data6 for both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. Our results indicate that major Northern Hemisphere eruptions have an immediate effect on the Northern Hemisphere average surface temperature but little or no effect on the Southern Hemisphere average. Southern Hemisphere eruptions affect both Southern and Northern Hemisphere temperatures after a lag of between six months and a year.last_img read more

North Sevier started scoring when a Kanab snap on a punt sailed over punter Mason (Bradley) Haycock’s head for a 2-0 Wolves lead.Kanab then blocked a punt, setting up a 20-yard scoring run by Cowboys signal-caller Derek Houston although the PAT was blocked, making it 6-2 Kanab.Janes then added his 78-yard interception return for a score and 25-yard scoring reception to make it 20-2. Parker Fraklin then sacked North Sevier signal-caller Kannin Boswell (2 of 10, 23 yards, TD/INT) for a safety, giving Kanab a 22-2 lead at the half.However, behind the stellar play of star tailback Landan Gale (26 car, 277 yards, 2 TD’s; just under 10.7 yards per carry), the Wolves hung around. Boswell also contriubted with a 15-yard scoring reception to Cauy Williams (2 rec, 23 yards, TD) and an intereception defensively. Furthermore, Nathan Snyder (11 car, 30 yards, TD) added a 3-yard scoring run for the Wolves.Nevertheless, North Sevier failed on an onside kick to conclude the game, allowing the Cowboys to run out the clock and hold on for the victory.Kanab does their best @Lionelrichie impression to “hold on” as they are now 6-0 and 3-0 in 2-A South play, quelling a spirited North Sevier comeback effort in prevailing 28-23.— Brad James (@BradfatherSpeak) September 19, 2020The Cowboys next host Milford September 25 at 7:00 pm and North Sevier travels across U.S. 50 to face the Millard Eagles September 25.This will be a Mid-Utah Radio broadcast that can be heard on KSVC 100.5 FM or online at midutahradio.com.Michael Warino had 14 carries on 71 yards for Kanab, serving as the Cowboys’ leading rusher on the evening.

Coffee Republic: franchise sales up, own-store sales “weak”

first_imgCoffee Republic chairman Peter Breach has promised to “forcefully address” the “disappointingly weak” performance of its company-owned coffee shops.Full-year results to 30 March 2008 show the company made a net loss of £2.5m (2007: £2.42m), in the first full year since Breach and chief executive Steven Bartlett took control of the business.While overall sales – covering both franchises and company-owned stores – grew by 9% during the year, sales at company-owned stores dived by 39.8% to £5.8m.“This has been a year of significant change with the brand now represented across the UK and in twelve countries overseas,” said Breach. “We are still in a turnaround period and our costs have continued to out-pace our income as we vigorously invest in the future of this global brand.”Over the past year, the number of Coffee Republic outlets has more than quadrupled to 193, with major growth coming from a doubling of franchise units to 53. CR now has 10 stores abroad, with roll-out commitments for 200 stores over the next five years. Bartlett, who has a substantial shareholding in the business, is stepping down as chief executive at CR’s AGM and will remain on Coffee Republic’s board as a non-executive director. Breach said: “I intend to propose his appointment as vice-chairman at that meeting.”The company said it was entering a phase of “consolidation and refinement”.last_img read more
