You only have to look at the graph below showing sea level rise since 1880 to see that it has accelerated from about 1mm/year at the end of the 19th century to about 3mm/year at present.(from CSIRO). If you take a closer look at recent sea level rise you’ll see that it has been very consistent, only deviating from the trend line by about 10mm at any time. So if you were unscrupulous, and wanted to try to make it look like sea level rise had decelerated what could you do? You could split the series at a point where sea level was above the trend line and compare trends before and after.  this is what Klaus-Eckart Puls did (green line added by me): Of course, you could achieve the opposite effect by splitting at  a point in time where sea level was below the trend line.  Note that the trend for the first half, 3.5mm/year isn’t significantly different from the overall trend and that the latest measurement lies on the trend fitted to the first part of the data (the green line above). Naturally, Andrew Bolt was taken in, claiming that sea level rise was slowing, oblivious to the fact that this contradicted his earlier claims that sea level had stopped rising. And what is more this sea...

Australian police remember fallen officers in ceremony during Anchorage visit

Shari Allison, chief inspector with the New South Wales Police Department, speaks at a police remembrance ceremony Friday, Sept. 27, 2019, in Anchorage. (AP Photo/Rachel D’Oro) Australians at an international police convention were far from home, but they didn’t want to miss an official day to honor their fallen officers. So instead, they held a quickly planned ceremony Friday with their counterparts in Alaska. The Australians were among about 700 officers attending the International Association of Women Police convention in Anchorage. They joined other convention delegates from New Zealand and Papua New Guinea who also commemorated their region’s 30th annual Police Remembrance Day in the short ceremony outside a memorial to fallen law enforcement officers at the Alaska state crime lab. “It is a day we can pause and reflect on the sacrifices that unfortunately come with their chosen profession,” Australian Federal Police Superintendent Conrad Jensen told the crowd, which also included Alaska State Troopers and Anchorage police. Jensen called out the names of officers who have died in the line of duty from his region. During a brief speech, troopers Direc...

PACK EXPO expects 30,000 to attend 3-day Las Vegas convention

A robotics display kicked off the first day of PACK EXPO, underway at the Las Vegas Convention Center. A row of robotic arms carefully placed packaged food inside clear bags on Monday, opening day for PACK EXPO Las Vegas, one of the largest packaging trade shows in North America. The robotic efforts were part of “PACK for a Purpose: Robots Fighting Hunger,” an initiative using the latest robot and co-bot technologies to fill backpacks with food for schoolchildren in need, according to officials with PMMI, the Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, which puts on the trade show. PACK EXPO, underway at the Las Vegas Convention Center, expects to host more than 30,000 attendees over the three-day show, which features 2,000 exhibitors. It is held in Las Vegas every other year — alternating years with Chicago — and takes up over 900,000 net square feet. Laura Thompson, PMMI’s vice president of trade shows, said this year’s convention will draw more attendees and exhibitors than in previous years. “Our attendees are consumer packaged good companies from every industry,” she said. “They’re looking for something to package what they’re selling — either the materials or th...

Tax Harmonisation Is The Biggest EU Issue Facing Malta: Here’s What Local MEP Candidates Had To Say

Tax harmonisation is under the microscope once again after one of the leading candidates for EU Commission President Frans Timmermans said the would pursue a minimum 18% tax rate across the EU. In a country where partisan tribalism is the name of the game, it’s becoming more important to pull our focus away from local issues and begin taking notice of policies that can have a massive effect on Malta. Adding an extra layer to the debate on a local level, Malta’s Labour Party forms part of the political grouping pushing for Timmermans election, the Party of European Socialists. Also concerning is that Manfred Weber, the candidate of the European People Party (of which the PN is a member) strayed from the EPP’s manifesto position by saying he would push the introduction of a qualified majority voting in relation to some “special fields” of taxation. “Generally I believe in tax competition, but in special fields like digital taxation we need a common EU role,” Weber said. Lovin Malta sent questions to some of Malta’s leading MEP candidates to get their perspective and understand what they can do to ensure the island’s voice is heard on the European stage. Here’s what they had to sa...

The term “inclusion” is very often found in stores selling amber, but what exactly does the word mean when referring to amber? Is it only some impurity found inside? Inside—yes. Impurity—also yes, by and large. But an inclusion in amber is very special because it is often much more valuable than the piece of amber in which it is found. In the amber market, an inclusion is most often associated with an animal or plant, but such an association is only partial. Anything that is found inside amber is an inclusion, as long as—and most importantly—it got there in a natural way. It can be organic debris, a plant or an animal, but an inclusion can also be a drop of water, inorganic compounds, or bubbles of air or other gases. Basically, it can be anything that, at some point millions of years ago, fell into the liquid resin and got trapped during a natural process. Inclusions can be divided into organic: plants, animals or their remains; and inorganic: air bubbles, pyrite and water. Indeterminable organic debris and inorganic inclusions are often a gratifying artistic material as they make up inimitable patterns used in amber jewellery, whereas well-preserved organic inclusions are uniq...

Generally speaking, the steel flanges refer to the joints specially used for connecting pipes. For example, two steel pipes with a diameter of 100 can be connected by welding or electric welding. Once welded, it is not easy to disassemble unless it is cut by a cutter or Electric welding to cut open. However, if a flange (usually a round flange) is used, a gasket seal can be added and then fixed with a screw cap. It can also be easily disassembled when the pipeline fails or is overhauled. In addition, if there are flanges on both sides of the large gate valve switch, it is convenient to remove the switch. The Welding neck flanges is normally referred to as the high hub flange. It is designed to transfer stresses to the pipe, thereby reducing high stress concentrations at the base of the flange. A weld neck flange (also known as a high-hub flange and tapered hub flange) is a type of flange. There are two designs. The regular type is used with pipes. The long type is unsuitable for pipes and is used in process plant. A weld neck flange consists of a circular fitting with a protruding rim around the circumference. Generally machined from a forging, these flanges are typically butt w...

Zortrax introduces Endureal, its 3rd generation industrial 3D printer. Capable of printing PEEK, this 3D printer

Zortrax introduces Endureal, its 3rd generation industrial 3D printer. Capable of printing PEEK, this 3D printer is targeted towards professional production lines. Read on as we review its specs. The new machine is due to be unveiled in full at the TCT Show, taking place on September 24th, 2019 in Birmingham, UK, and expected to be shipped out in early 2020. Rumors about the Endureal being geared towards printing PEEK — a high-temperature material desirable for professional applications due to its high temperature and chemical resistance as well as mechanical strength — seem to prove right, as the manufacturer states this 3rd generation 3D printer is designed for industry and production lines, such as advanced engineering and medical applications, yet remaining accessible and relatively plug and play. The Zortrax Endureal utilizes Layer Plastic Deposition (LPD) technology, which is essentially the company’s spin on Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM). Like the M300 Plus, Zortrax previous LPD based 3D printer, the Endureal also seems to offers an advanced dual-extrusion system capable of printing high-temperature filaments with soluble support structures.
