We made the decision to focus on that growth through 2020 by stepping back from preservation and REO work. We’re excited about our new focus and looking forward to a lucrative future for Laudan Inspection Services.”As Laudan now repositions itself for future growth, Donn Wodicka, LIS Field Director, said in a statement, “LIS continues to achieve great things as there is a strong interest for on-time, high-quality inspections.

Biology of the cirrate octopod Grimpoteuthis glacialis (Cephalopoda; Opisthoteuthididae) in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica

first_imgThe capture of 52 specimens of the cirrate octopod Grimpoteuthis glacialis (Robson, 1930), of dorsal mantle length 20-165 mm during a 1996 trawling survey near the Antarctic Peninsula allowed the basic biology of the species to be examined. Their presence in bottom trawls at depths of 333-879 m, but their absence from benthopelagic and pelagic trawls, is consistent with a primarily benthic habitat. The largest single sample, 40 animals, came from a soft mud bottom and highlights the patchy nature of the distribution. Males tended to be bigger in total length and mass than females of similar mantle length. The males, however, were mature at a smaller size. Mature males have tiny sperm packets, rather than typical cephalopod spermatophores,in their distal reproductive tract. Mature females have large, smooth eggs in the proximal oviduct, in the huge oviducal gland and in the distal oviduct. Eggs in the distal oviduct have a thick, sticky coating that hardens in seawater into a secondary egg case. Ovarian eggs vary greatly in size, possibly indicating protracted egg laying. Observations on live animals indicate that the species swims primarily by fin action, rather than by jetting or medusoid pulses with the arm/web complex. It may be capable of limited changes in colour pattern, especially on the oral surface of the web. Three pairs of surface structures that appear superficially to be white spots anterior to the eyes and near the bases of the fins are actually transparent patches in the skin. When considered in association with the transparent subdermal layer and the anatomy of the eyes, optic nerves and optic lobes, these clear patches seem to function in detecting unfocused light on the horizontal plane of the benthic animal.last_img read more

Cerro Gordo County slips on latest social distancing scorecard

first_imgMASON CITY — Last week, Mason City’s mayor said a national company that gathers cell phone location data and provided analysis to various companies had ranked Cerro Gordo County positively in heeding to the “stay at home” concept during the COVID-19 crisis. During a news conference with local health leaders yesterday afternoon, Bill Schickel said Cerro Gordo County had slipped on Unacast’s latest non-essential travel scorecard.  “Last week I reported that Cerro Gordo County was doing a little better than the statewide average on what is called the social distancing scorecard. This afternoon, I have to let you know that we’re actually doing a little bit worse. As of March 30th, the scorecard gives the US a ‘C’, it gives Iowa a ‘D’, and unfortunately it gives Cerro Gordo County a ‘D-minus’, with an ‘F’ in the category of reducing non-essential travel.” Schickel says the public needs to continue to do their best to stay inside and only be out and about when necessary.  “The caution in this particular data is that history tells us that communities that let up their guard too early have paid a tremendous price in the long run. That’s why it’s so important that we keep our social distancing.” The latest data from Unacast gives Winnebago, Hancock, and Kossuth counties “B” grades; “C” grades for Worth, Mitchell, Butler, Franklin and Wright; and a “D” for Floyd County.

Their founding core of Marines has now grown to veterans from every branch of service. They have also been blessed by the out pouring of support from family, friends, civilians, and organizations like Thrive.

Four Area Towns Get Low-Cost FEMA Loans

first_imgLoans cannot exceed 50 percent of a jurisdiction’s operating budget for the year in which the disaster occurs. The maximum loan is $5 million. Jurisdictions must demonstrate the need for assistance to perform government functions. The term is five years but can be extended to 10 years if the applicant chooses. Interest on the loans equals the rate for five-year maturities determined by the U.S. Secretary of 
the Treasury on the day the note is executed.In response to Super Storm Sandy, Congress allocated additional funds to the Disaster Assistance
Direct Loan Program Account. At the request of Gov. Chris Christie, FEMA activated the program 
in New Jersey.“Community Disaster Loans are based on need to bridge the revenue gap so local governments are 
able to continue to operate after a disaster,” FEMA Federal Coordinating Officer Gracia Szczech said. “Loans are for local government operating expenses such as salaries of police, firefighters and teachers while the community recovers.”The loans cannot be used as a cost share for any federal grants or for capital projects. The area jurisdictions receiving loans are:Borough of Atlantic Highlands, $2,108,876;Borough of Little Silver, $1,829,324;Borough of Oceanport, $1,154,931;Borough of Sea Bright, $1,297,273; and TRENTON – Four Two-River area municipalities have received funding from Community Disaster Loans through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).The low-interest loan program helps eligible jurisdictions that have suffered substantial revenue losses from a major disaster to 
perform their governmental functions.last_img read more

Saints clinch BCIHL title go from cellar to penthouse in one season

first_img“We had a 42-16 advantage in shots on goal and could have had a few more goals.”(Eastern goalie Jason) Greenwell was very good in net for Eastern and we weren’t great in terms of finishing plays. But overall it was a very strong team effort and a good bounce-back from a poor performance last weekend.”Kam Crawford opened the scoring for the Saints on the power-play midway through the first period when his wrist shot from the point found its way through a screen and past Greenwell.And the hosts doubled their lead four minutes on a similar play, this time with Dylan Smith wristing home from high in the slot with the man-advantage. Eastern replied before intermission, however, as Eagles captain Bret Kellogg’s nifty redirect of a Zach Maxwell point shot beat Saints starter Alex Sirard. The teams traded chances throughout the second, but the period remained scoreless until Connor McLaughlin slammed home a Crawford rebound on yet another Saints power-play with just five seconds remaining in the frame. The goal came just a handful of seconds after Sirard made a breakaway save on Ryan Pajimola with a chance for EWU to tie the game. Sirard maintained his perfect record and picked up his 11th win on the season with a 14-save effort. Greenwell was unlucky to take the loss following a 39-save performance.
