Scientists confirm traditional knowledge regarding seal pup migration

These are portions of the pup tracks in November-December, after they left their birth islands. The tracks are overlaid on an 1895 chart displaying the understanding at that time of where northern fur seals traveled during their migration. (Courtesy Noel Pelland/Proceedings of the Tribunal of Arbitration at Paris, Volume 7.)Audio Playerhttps://media.ktoo.org/2018/03/sealwind.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.In the late 1800s, the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury sent Captain C. L. Hooper to the Pribilof Islands to learn as much as he could about the northern fur seal from the Alaska Native people who lived there. At the time, the fur trade was big business.One of the lessons he recorded was that the seals are known to travel with the wind when possible. Now scientists have the data to back up that traditional knowledge.“We have this amazing technology that really allows us this very cool look at the lives of an individual animal and where it goes and what it does,” said Noel Pelland, physical oceanographer and postdoctoral researcher at NOAA’s Alaska Fisheries Science Center. “That’s helping us to quantify some of those things that have been discussed by the Aleut hunters.”Pelland is studying how climate affects the survival of northern fur seals in the Bering Sea, and wind may be an important factor.After pups leave the Pribilof Islands in late fall, they can migrate thousands of miles. Varying wind conditions mean pups can end up in a range of locations from the Aleutian Islands to the Gulf of Alaska.Pelland wants to know if the way the pups migrate, and where they end up, is affecting their survival.“In the best years about 50 percent of the pups that leave on their migration will make it to age two,”Pelland said. “In the worst years only about 20 percent of the pups will make it through their migration.”So far, Pelland and his colleagues have compared data from satellite tagged pups with weather models. Now, they want to compare year-to-year changes in the survival of the pups with where the pups end up.And he says the research helps make the case for all scientists to take traditional knowledge into account.“There’s this idea of a separation between ‘scientific knowledge’ and traditional knowledge. I think a much better way to look at it is as an continuum,”Pelland said. “There isn’t this formal separation. It’s all knowledge.”Wind might not be a factor in the fur seal decline, Pelland says but a better understanding of its role is important.Share this story:last_img read more

Aoife Kirby and Aimée Lennon were unlucky to not see their efforts go over the post while Lucy Conroy for O’Moores made great efforts only to be halted by a relentless defence by The Harps.Aimee Cuddy stood strong in goals for O’Moores – last year’s Feile experience showing on the young O’Moores girl.The Harps finished worthy winners in Mountrath this afternoon and now head to Kilbrittain, Cork, for the All-Ireland Feile this summer.O’Moores Camogie TeamSCORERS – The Harps: Lisa Kirby 0-4 (0-3 frees, 0-1 65’s) Katie Healy 0-1THE HARPS: Mia Henderson; Orla Holland, Caoimhe Doheny, Orla Brophy; Eva Dunphy, Kayla Dwyer, Abbie Gibbons; Katie Healy, Lisa Kirby; Georgie Holland Rome, Amy Lacey, Catherine Kirby; Emma Delahunty, Rachael Dollard, Aoife Gee.

Spotlight on Yam and Cassava

first_imgRelatedSpotlight on Yam and Cassava Advertisements RelatedSpotlight on Yam and Cassava FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Jamaica, like many other nations, is very concerned about food security, thus this issue and rural development have become primary areas of focus in the current agricultural development programmes.According to Minister of Agriculture, Dr. Christopher Tufton, in his contribution to the 2008/09 Sectoral Debate, this focus has resulted from “a combination of high food prices and high fuel and fertiliser costs, which pose a clear and present danger to our country’s food security. As net importers of food, we are particularly challenged.”“A careful examination of our food basket shows at least 61 per cent of the items are imported. We must reduce our dependence on imports for consumption,” he stressed.To address this, yam and cassava, are being vigorously promoted as starch alternatives. Renewed and curious interest in yam as a ‘power starch’, has emerged following Jamaica’s outstanding track performance at the recent Olympic Games and the revelation that yam is a part of the athletes’ regular starch diet. One website carried the headline in bold letters – ‘Yellow yam to keep you going and going: Usain Bolt’s Secret Weapon’.Studies have shown that yams are high in vitamin C and B6, dietary fibre, potassium and manganese. Potassium maintains fluid levels in the body and is used by body-builders to give their muscles more energy, although effectiveness of this is unproven. Manganese is important in carbohydrate metabolism, blood sugar regulation, nerve function and as an anti-oxidant.Yam is also low in saturated fat, offering good protection against heart disease. Yam has a lower glycemic index, lower than potato; meaning that it can provide more sustained energy for a longer period of time and so offer better protection against obesity, as it keeps persons satisfied longer. This makes yam an ideal starch meal before sporting activities, recreational or otherwise. It is ideal for children a few hours before playing football or going to compete on sports day.The staple can be prepared in many ways – in salads, boiled, roasted, fried for chips, in casseroles and in as many ways as the potato. Roast yam and salt fish is a delicious traditional dish in Jamaica.The popular bammy is made from cassava flour in Jamaica and like yam, is an excellent and flexible starch alternative. Cassava is the third largest starch staple in the world and can be prepared in as many ways as the potato and probably more. It is widely eaten in Africa, South America, Asia and the Caribbean. In Thailand, it is eaten and used for bio-fuel. In China, it is known as tree potato and is the fifth starch consumed after rice. Cassava can be used in casseroles, for fries, stews, puddings, dips, pesto, sauces, salads, cereals and bread. It makes an excellent guacamole when mixed with avocado.Both yam and cassava also have medicinal benefits. In Japan, certain varieties of yam are used to treat impotence and in parts of Africa, cassava is used to treat malaria, diarrhoea and pain. Elsewhere, it is used as protection against over exposure to the sun.Yam is also a part of traditional religious rituals in countries like Toga in Africa, where it is offered to gods as thanks for harvests, and gifts to encourage prosperity. In some traditions, the best are selected and offered to Kings.With a renewed interest in these starch alternatives, vast areas of knowledge and opportunity are opening up and the possibilities are endless. “These are extraordinary times and extraordinary times require extraordinary measures. With all the uncertainties of the global marketplace, the issue today is not about finding cheaper supplies, but more importantly, ensuring access to food,” Dr. Tufton noted in his presentation.Within the global context, “the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF), are predicting that food protests are likely in at least 30 countries around the world, as a result of escalating prices and the threat of hunger,” the Minister noted.For Jamaica, the Minister pointed out that, “performance in the agricultural sector over the past 20 years, poses a threat to food security and economic well-being, as farmers abandoned fields and became traders or unemployed.” He pointed out that in 2007 agricultural production was 73.76 per cent of 2006 levels.STATIN figures show that production of yellow and sweet yam in Jamaica fell between 1987 and 2006. Local production of yellow yam fell from 87,190 tonnes between 1987 and 1991 to 78,737 tonnes in 2006. Production of sweet yam fell from 87,190 tonnes to 78,737 tonnes in the similar period.However, the Minister intends to reverse these trends through increased financial and technical support for the agricultural sector, heightened public education and a revaluation of the farmer’s input in national prosperity and well-being.The Minister points out that many countries are already taking steps to safeguard what they have for their own consumption, by imposing export levies on starch products, such as cereals. Some countries like Argentina, Bolivia and India, have banned export of maize and wheat.Never before have our local foods been so important and the curious interest in yams, is timely. Whether it is a Yam Day in Parliament as the Minister says, or a Yam Festival in Trelawny, which can be paralleled with the traditional yam festivals in Ghana and Nigeria, it is a new season for local starches and everyone must embrace the new attitude to ‘Grow what we eat…eat what we grow’. The country’s survival and prosperity depends on it.center_img Spotlight on Yam and Cassava UncategorizedSeptember 14, 2008 RelatedSpotlight on Yam and Cassavalast_img read more

Air connectivity scheme helping recovery take off

first_imgAir connectivity scheme helping recovery take off Hon Michael Wood The Government has awarded a new round of airline support contracts through to the end of October 2021 to help keep New Zealand connected internationally and positioned for recovery, Transport Minister Michael Wood announced today.Michael Wood said the Government moved quickly to keep critical trade flowing at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic to support our economic recovery.“The previous International Airfreight Capacity (IAFC) scheme was restructured in March this year to focus on staying connected with international partners and our recovery. It allows for support levels to reduce as passenger numbers rise.“Airfreight capacity is at 90 per cent of pre-COVID levels thanks to the previous scheme and its successor Maintaining International Air Connectivity (MIAC) scheme, which have helped keep trade channels open and maintain supply of time-critical goods like medicine into New Zealand.“Since May last year, Government support has enabled more than 7,000 flights carrying over 136,000 tonnes of airfreight worth around $10 billion. “The scheme has also been critical for our Pacific partners – it recently supported the delivery of nearly 200,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses to Fiji, Nauru, Samoa, the Solomon Islands, Tonga and Tuvalu through the COVAX Facility.“Nearly 75,000 people have returned to New Zealand on flights supported by the scheme – 53 per cent of the total number of people to pass through MIQ facilities. It’s unlikely those journeys or the freight moved would have been possible without it. “New agreements have been reached with Air New Zealand, Air Tahiti Nui, Korean Air, and China Airlines to maintain airfreight capacity with key international partners. The Ministry of Transport is negotiating with a number of other carriers and further announcements will be made in the coming weeks.“There was a very real possibility New Zealand could have been effectively cut off from the rest of the world. Extending support to October protects our links with the rest of the globe and gives a regular schedule of air services for passengers and freight.“Securing our recovery is a key focus for the Government and we are carefully watching the international aviation market. We will consider extending support beyond October to a final date of March 2022 if necessary,” Michael Wood said.Based on forecast demand for the MIAC scheme, the Government has agreed to an additional $170 million in support to October 2021, which will be drawn from the COVID-19 support package.More information on the IAFC and MIAC schemes can be found on the Ministry of Transport website and exporters should contact their usual freight forwarder. /Public Release.
