Tropical Storm Gamma makes landfall in Mexico after gaining strength

first_imgABC NewsBY: DANIEL MANZO, ABC NEWS(NEW YORK) — Gamma made landfall near Tulum, Mexico around 11:45 a.m. CT as a strong tropical storm with maximum sustained winds near 70 mph.The storm is now moving inland over the northeastern Yucatan Peninsula bringing heavy rain and strong winds to the area. Hurricane and tropical storm warnings remain in effect along parts of the Peninsula this afternoon. Locally 6 to 12 inches or more of rain is expected and this could trigger dangerous flash flooding and mudslides.The main threat right now for Gamma in Mexico will be the 15 inches of rain that will be possible in some areas, which could produce life-threatening flash flooding near where the storm makes landfall. A separate area of heavy rain, far away from the center of Gamma, could bring up to 20 inches of rain over the Mexican states of Campeche, Tabasco and Chiapas. This could produce major flash flooding and mudslides.After impacting the Yucatan Peninsula, Gamma will emerge in the Gulf of Mexico. However, steering currents will become quite weak and it does not appear Gamma will have much opportunity to strengthen as it meanders for the better part of the upcoming week. Another Tropical system will try to sneak in behind Gamma, likely reaching the Gulf of Mexico by the middle of next week.It remains unclear how some of this will play out, including whether this second tropical disturbance will have any opportunity for strengthening and how it steers through the Gulf of Mexico. Currently, the system has a 40% chance of development in the next five days. It’s too early to tell whether any of this tropical activity is a threat to the U.S.In California, there were a couple of new daily record high temperatures on Friday, including Escondido, which hit 105 degrees, Palmdale, which hit 101 degrees and Sandberg, which hit 93 degrees. Anaheim tied its record of 101 degrees. In Arizona, Tucson hit 103 degrees, which tied its all-time October record that was previously set just this past Thursday.There will be a brief period of elevated fire conditions due to gusty, dry winds Saturday morning in parts of Southern California. It will also be another hot day across California and the desert southwest, where temperature records will be possible again.However, there is some good news for the western U.S., which has been plagued by record heat and dry weather. A major pattern change is in sight for the region in the upcoming week.Temperatures will drop some 10 to15 degrees over the course of the upcoming week, from the 90s down into the 80s and even 70s. This is quite a welcome relief for the region. It even looks like some beneficial rain will arrive in Northern California by next weekend.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

A global cline in a colour polymorphism suggests a limited contribution of gene flow towards the recovery of a heavily exploited marine mammal

first_imgEvaluating how populations are connected by migration is important for understanding species resilience because gene flow can facilitate recovery from demographic declines. We therefore investigated the extent to which migration may have contributed to the global recovery of the Antarctic fur seal (Arctocephalus gazella), a circumpolar distributed marine mammal that was brought to the brink of extinction by the sealing industry in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. It is widely believed that animals emigrating from South Georgia, where a relict population escaped sealing, contributed to the re-establishment of formerly occupied breeding colonies across the geographical range of the species. To investigate this, we interrogated a genetic polymorphism (S291F) in the melanocortin 1 receptor gene, which is responsible for a cream-coloured phenotype that is relatively abundant at South Georgia and which appears to have recently spread to localities as far afield as Marion Island in the sub-Antarctic Indian Ocean. By sequencing a short region of this gene in 1492 pups from eight breeding colonies, we showed that S291F frequency rapidly declines with increasing geographical distance from South Georgia, consistent with locally restricted gene flow from South Georgia mainly to the South Shetland Islands and Bouvetøya. The S291F allele was not detected farther afield, suggesting that although emigrants from South Georgia may have been locally important, they are unlikely to have played a major role in the recovery of geographically more distant populations.last_img read more

WMAW: “Winning was surreal, I wasn’t expecting it”

first_imgThe Cake Shop Bakery’s David Wright saw off tough competition to be crowned Baker of the Year at the 2017 Baking Industry Awards ceremonyThe secret to success in bakery, according to Baker of the Year 2017 David Wright, is pretty simple: work hard and stay true to your core values.“We never try to be something that we’re not,” explains the third-generation baker, who runs The Cake Shop Bakery in Woodbridge, Suffolk. “We always try to improve things as much as we can, even if it’s just by a small amount every single day.”Wright is no stranger to success after winning ITV’s Britain’s Best Bakery in 2014 and regional accolades at the Suffolk Food and Drink Awards in 2015.And he recommends entering the Baking Industry Awards to businesses aiming to raise their profile in the industry.“It felt great just to get to the last three,” he told British Baker on the night he won the award. “And it has been really fantastic to meet all the other finalists.”Wright took over the business from his father in 2013 and has transformed the shop and café. With experience in set design after attending King’s College University in London, he redesigned them both and moved production to a new site nearby.Breads, pastries and cakes are sold through the shop and café, and the business also caters for functions.“Bakery is hard work, but what feels right is the millennia-old connection between the field and turning grain into something we can eat,” says Wright.“I enjoy its simplicity: basic ingredients turned into tasty breads and delicious treats – it’s alchemy.”Where possible, ingredients such as rapeseed oil, flour, organic eggs, and sausage meat are sourced locally. And Wright says he has enjoyed a great reaction from his suppliers since picking up the trophy at this year’s Baking Industry Awards ceremony at the London Hilton on Park Lane in September.“Winning Baker of the Year was surreal, I really wasn’t expecting it,” he says.“Everyone has been really kind and saying that it has been well deserved. We have been offered so much support and it has been really great in that respect,” Wright adds. “All the customers have been really pleased and the businesses we supply have been really shouting about it.”Since his win, Wright has been focused on the bakery’s new wholesale facility, which opened in the summer to increase production by 20% to keep up with demand from retailers, restaurants and hotels.The facility received financial backing from Lloyds Bank for a major fit-out and new equipment such as specialist ovens and provers.Sponsor’s commentBrook Food Processing Equipment has sponsored and judged the Baker of the Year category at the Baking Industry Awards for four consecutive years. The business said David Wright showed “amazing attributes” across the entire spectrum of baking. “He demonstrated huge customer awareness, a passion for producing good products and a massive respect for tradition as well as baking extremely good products.”Brook Food marketing director Ann Wells, who presented the award alongside celebrity host Denise van Outen, said: “The award should bring David’s business some great publicity and his local customers will be delighted to be able to buy their bread from the 2017 Baker of the Year.”last_img read more
