Observed propagation route of VLF transmitter signals in the magnetosphere

Posted on

first_imgSignals of powerful ground transmitters at various places have been detected by satellites in near‐Earth space. The study on propagation mode, ducted or nonducted, has attracted much attentions for several decades. Based on the statistical results from Van Allen Probes (data from October 2012 to March 2017) and DEMETER satellite (from January 2006 to December 2007), we present the ground transmitter signals distributed clearly in ionosphere and magnetosphere. The observed propagation route in the meridian plane in the magnetosphere for each of various transmitters from the combination of DEMETER and Van Allen Probes data in nighttime is revealed for the first time. We use realistic ray tracing simulation and compare simulation results against Van Allen Probes and DEMETER observation. By comparison we demonstrate that the observed propagation route, with partial deviation from the field lines corresponding to ground stations, provides direct and clear statistical evidence that the nonducted propagation mode plays a main role, although with partial contribution from ducted propagation. The propagation characteristics of VLF transmitter signals in the magnetosphere are critical for quantitatively assessing their contribution to energetic electron loss in radiation belts.last_img read more

Ocean City Field Hockey Team Advances to Championship

Posted on

first_imgBy LESLEY GRAHAMThe Ocean City High School field hockey team defeated the visiting Mainland Mustangs 3-0 on Thursday in the semifinal round of the Southeast A playoff.The win boosts Ocean City’s record to 11-2, while the Mustangs see their season come to a close with a record of 8-5.Scoring for the Red Raiders were junior Racheli Levy-Smith with two goals and senior Tara McNally adding one.Both Alexis Smallwood and Andi Helpenstine added assists on the afternoon.The game was the third time the teams have met, the previous two meetings in the regular season both going in favor of Ocean City. Both teams were playing with a heightened sense of urgency knowing that at this point in the season it is win or go home.Andi Helphenstine (25) takes a shot on cage from a penalty corner.The first quarter of play was evenly matched with Ocean City and Mainland fighting for control and possession.Both teams had scoring opportunities, with Ocean City drawing a number of corners, but Mainland’s goalkeeper made some outstanding saves to keep the Mustangs knotted at zero with the Raiders.As the second quarter of play got underway, Ocean City’s Levy-Smith was able to open up the scoring on a pass from Andi Helpenstine, giving Ocean City what would be the game winning goal with under seven minutes remaining in the half.Adding a bit of extra insurance, McNally powered another one in for the Red Raiders with under 30 seconds to go, giving Ocean City a 2-0 lead going into halftime.When the second half got underway, the game would remain without a score for another full quarter and most of the final quarter as well.Racheli Levy-Smith jumps for joy after scoring one of her two goals in the game.With two minutes remaining in the game, and the Mustangs attempting to muster all their energy for a comeback, Ocean City put the nail in the coffin with a third goal, from the stick of Levy-Smith, her second of the afternoon.Ocean City Head Coach Kelsey Burke was happy with how her team played.“The team was able to make adjustments mid game so that was good to see,” said Burke post game.As the Red Raiders prepare for the championship game this Saturday, it is also the last game of the season.“We are looking forward to Saturday. We know either way, it’s our last game of the season, so we are trying to enjoy every minute of it,” Burke said.The Red Raiders will face Egg Harbor Township for the championship on Saturday on their home field at Carey Stadium.Alexis Smallwood surveys the field looking for her next pass.

How to build a millennial-friendly banking experience

Posted on

first_img 89SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Gabe Krajicek Gabe Krajicek is the chief executive officer of BancVue, the leader in branded, community-powered banking products.BancVue’s innovative Kasasa® suite connects breakthrough products with world-class marketing, data-driven consulting, and … Web: www.bancvue.com Details Improve your product line-up. As mentioned earlier, many Millennials believe credit unions and community banks can’t provide the products they want and need. So what are they looking for?Almost all Millennial consumers say cash back options (91 percent) and rewards (91 percent) are at least somewhat important factors when choosing a bank. Access to a mobile or online personal financial management platform, in which they can monitor all of their finances (i.e., credit cards, loans, bank accounts) in one place, is also at least somewhat important to almost all Millennials (94 percent). Additionally, mobile banking options are much more important to Millennials (90 percent) than other generations (72 percent for those ages 35 to 54, and 58 percent for those 55 and up).If your institution isn’t offering these products and services, now is a good time to start. Many third-party providers can help supply the needed technologies and products, often at little additional cost or hassle. Make it more convenient. Despite growth in online banking use, the study made it clear that Millennials highly value convenient locations and in-person service.Millennials are more likely than older adults to say it’s valuable to bank at an institution with a branch nearby (86 percent vs. 74 percent of those 55 and up). More importantly, 88 percent would prefer to do at least some banking in person, with 42 percent saying they would like to receive financial advice in person. Almost all Millennial consumers (96 percent) say personal customer service is at least somewhat important when it comes to choosing a bank.Mystery shopping and training services can help ensure that your institution’s representatives are consistently delivering stellar customer service. These services often result in improvements that lead to increased account acquisition.To attract the next generation of customers, it’s essential to offer an experience that appeals to that generation. These simple steps can go a long way toward building a banking experience that attracts and retains Millennial customers.*“Consumers” are defined as U.S. adults who have a checking account at a financial institution.center_img With the $600 billion they contribute to the economy each year, Millennials are transforming the financial services industry—but community financial institutions (CFIs) might not be adapting fast enough.Among Millennials—18 to 34 year olds—with checking accounts, 51 percent use a big national bank as their primary financial institution while just 29 percent use a community bank or credit union, according to the 2015 Consumer Banking Insights Study (CBI). Additionally, 38 percent of Millennial consumers* who don’t currently have a checking account at a CFI say they want to use a CFI but don’t because those institutions lack the products (such as free checking, rewards checking and financial management tools) they need. The study was commissioned by BancVue and conducted online by Harris Poll among more than 1,000 U.S. adults.However, Millennials are more open than other generations to switching to a CFI. Fully 41 percent of Millennials who don’t already use a CFI say they’re at least somewhat likely to switch to one in 2015—that’s 2.5 times that of 35 to 54 year olds (16 percent) and those ages 55 and up (14 percent).With Millennials set to overtake Baby Boomers this year as the largest living generation, CFIs must deliver a banking experience that appeals to the next generation of customers. Data from the CBI suggest the following three steps could help:Boost your marketing. Nearly one-fifth of Millennials (18 percent) say they don’t use a local community bank or credit union because they are unaware of their options, compared to 8 percent of those ages 35 to 54 and 7 percent of those 55 and up. Those numbers make it clear that many CFIs aren’t reaching Millennials with their current promotional and educational efforts.Social media outreach and word of mouth or referral efforts can help. At least 75 percent of Millennials have a profile on at least one social networking site, and most Millennials—91 percent—report that they trust their friends for product and service recommendations.Finally, some CFIs are pooling their marketing budgets to increase the reach of their efforts, similar to when neighboring restaurants form a “restaurant row” or an area full of dealerships creates a “motor mile.” Marketing efforts that boost the reputation of CFIs as a whole wind up benefiting individual institutions as well.last_img read more

Why Arizona’s Storied Conservative Stronghold Could Flip for Biden

Posted on

first_img“Just being Latino in the state gave us a lot of anxiety,” said Ms. Maldonado, 29. “You’d say goodbye to your parents in the morning and not know if they would be caught up in a raid.” As Arizona now stands to become a coveted prize for Democrats, Maricopa County is undergoing what may amount to one of the biggest political shifts of any major county in the United States in recent years. The last time Maricopa County came this close to siding with a Democratic presidential candidate was in 1948.“We think of John Wayne and the Sonoran Desert when we have visions of Arizona, but the truth is we’re an urban state where the Phoenix metro area is the heart and soul of Arizona at this point,” said Joseph Garcia, executive director of Chicanos Por La Causa Action Fund, a Phoenix group that helped register and turn out thousands of Latino voters for Joseph R. Biden Jr. Accounting for about 60 percent of Arizona’s population with nearly 4.5 million people, Maricopa County ranks among the fastest-growing counties in the United States. The influx of more voters from other states, many of them relatively moderate or liberal, has produced some of this growth.But the county has also provided one of the most important venues for the ascendancy of Latino voters and elected officials in recent years, following the rapid growth of its Latino population since the start of the century, from about 365,000 in 2000 to more than 1.3 million in 2020.While Latinos in Florida got much of the nation’s attention this week for helping Mr. Trump win that state, efforts to boost voting for Democrats by Arizona’s Latinos got relatively little notice — and negligible help from the national Democratic Party, Mr. Garcia said.“All the attention for whatever reason goes to Miami-Dade County as if that is the center of the universe for Latinos,” he said. Referring to the national party, he added, “We didn’t get any help from them, but for us the Latino vote was too important and we weren’t going to wait around.” There is now a considerable list of elected positions in the county that are held by Democrats, including county recorder, sheriff, assessor and school superintendent — all in the place where the five-term Republican senator Barry Goldwater led the resurgence of the American conservative movement in the 1960s and ’70s.- Advertisement – PHOENIX — Ten years ago, Maricopa County was the place that spawned the political careers of Republican hard-liners like Joe Arpaio, the sheriff who demonized immigrants and placed inmates in a tent camp. Politicians from Phoenix and its suburbs thrived with appeals to voters on guns, religion and taxes.But these days, the county’s scorching growth has produced a battleground in which Republicans suddenly find themselves on the defensive. The children of the immigrants targeted by Mr. Arpaio, as well as an influx of outsiders from places like California, are reshaping the political landscape of this part of the West.- Advertisement – Many Democrats trace the changes that made them competitive in Maricopa County to the spate of anti-immigrant laws a decade ago that helped galvanize Latino youth in Arizona. A decade later, they have given rise to a generation of activists and elected officials.Raquel Terán, a Democratic state legislator who represents a district that encompasses parts of Phoenix and Glendale, began her political career as a field organizer fighting against anti-immigrant legislation and for workers’ rights.In 2012, she ran for office and lost by just 113 votes before resuming work as an organizer. Eventually, she became the state director for Mi Familia Vota, a national group that helps Latinos become citizens and register to vote. She decided to enter the race again in 2018, and won. This year she ran unopposed for a second term. Updated Nov. 6, 2020, 9:01 p.m. ET “We were helping people focus on our struggles, access to education, health care and jobs,” said Eduardo Sainz, state director of Mi Familia Vota.In addition to swinging the state in the presidential race, the effort led to the passage of a proposition on this year’s ballot to bolster funding for public schools by hundreds of millions of dollars each year by imposing a tax on the top 4 percent of wage earners in Arizona.Simon Romero reported from Phoenix, Miriam Jordan from Los Angeles and Michael Wines from Washington. Frances Robles contributed reporting from Miami. The shift from the old days seems jarring even to some of the Democrats involved in making it happen.Adrian Fontes, a former trial lawyer and Marine, became the first Latino elected to countywide office in Maricopa County in 2016.“I never thought I would get elected, period,” said Mr. Fontes, who now oversees elections as the county recorder after defeating a Republican incumbent who had held the seat since 1988. “I did not anticipate because of my lack of political savvy that Maricopa County would be the most important county in the most important presidential race in recent history,” he said in a recent interview.As votes in the county are counted this week, pro-Trump protesters, some of them armed with military-style rifles, have unsuccessfully demanded to be allowed in the building where the tabulation is taking place. The crowds have at times been chanting for Mr. Fontes to be recalled.Since he is also running for re-election, Mr. Fontes is staying away from both the tabulation center and his own recorder’s complex to avoid the appearance of any impropriety during the vote count. He is leading his Republican opponent in the race. Instead of leaving the state, she said, many young Latinos were energized. “It turned into a moment for folks to stand up, fight back and move past the fear to do something about it,” she said.A decade later, Ms. Maldonado, the daughter of a janitor and a teacher’s aide who immigrated to Phoenix from Mexico, is among the many children of immigrants who have built a grass-roots movement that has educated and mobilized hundreds of thousands of Latino voters.Ms. Maldonado began working with activists who mobilized in response to the anti-immigrant law.Hundreds of volunteers worked during the recent election campaign, braving 110-degree heat in face shields to engage Latinos in a “Basta Trump” (“Enough of Trump”) campaign. Others made phone calls and sent texts. “It’s the deliciousness of irony that not one of these people voted for me and we all want the exact same thing from this election: We want every valid vote counted,” he said of the protests. Various factors have contributed to the political reconfiguration, originating with the backlash — including from powerful Republicans in the Phoenix business establishment — against Arizona’s immigration crackdown in 2010. The changes began to take shape clearly by 2016, when Mr. Arpaio was defeated and Hillary Clinton lost the county by just three percentage points. “Through the years, we have been building political power,” Ms. Terán said. “And 2020 shows our work is paying off.”Another activist, Anabel Maldonado, was in high school when Arizona enacted legislation in 2010 that empowered the police to stop and question anyone they suspected of being in the country illegally, targeting undocumented immigrants in a state that had become a laboratory for such measures.Mr. Arpaio, the former sheriff, enforced the law, known as SB1070, by deploying his deputies across Maricopa County to conduct arrests and workplace raids. – Advertisement – “Right now, Maricopa is tangibly, unabashedly, demonstrably a Democratic county, something I never thought I would see in my lifetime,” said Stan Barnes, 59, a longtime Republican strategist in Phoenix. “It just blows my mind.”Even as Maricopa County’s individualistic gunslinging reputation is giving way to calls for change from its increasingly diverse electorate, it remains — like much of the country — sharply divided along political fault lines. The county’s Republicans maintain immense sway in Arizona’s state politics. Some of Mr. Trump’s most fervent supporters live in Maricopa County, reflected in the armed protesters who have been positioning themselves this week in front of the County Recorder’s voting tabulation site. – Advertisement – They accelerated in 2018 with Kyrsten Sinema’s flip of a Senate seat into Democratic hands. And they turned into a potential game-changer this week, as the county appeared to be providing a crucial boost to Mr. Biden’s bid for the presidency and Mark Kelly’s flip of yet another Senate seat held by Republicans.Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. led President Trump by about three percentage points in Maricopa County as of Friday afternoon — in a county that in 2012 saw Mitt Romney, then the Republican nominee for president, carry Maricopa County by 12 percentage points.last_img read more
