Human exposure to ultraviolet radiation at the Antipodes – a comparison between an Antarctic (67oS) and Arctic (75oN) location

first_imgWe used ultraviolet radiation dosimeters to investigate human exposure at two polar latitudes with a 24-h photoperiod: at Rothera Station (UK) (67degreesS) and at a field camp in the Haughton impact structure in the Canadian High Arctic (75degreesN). Mean personal UV radiation exposure in the Antarctic location was 4.3 times greater than that in the Arctic location, even in the abence of ozone depletion. More than zenith angle accounted for the higher UV exposure. Widespread snow and ice covers, and probably less atmospheric pollution, caused higher personal exposures. Although the mean exposures were higher in the Antarctic location, the mean exposure ratio in the Antarctic (0.20 +/- 0.09) was similar to the value measured in the Arctic (0.27 +/- 0.09) on clear days. We use the Antarctic ratio to provide quantitative estimates of UV-radiation exposure for workers at the Geographical South Pole for the winter solstice under a constant 24-h photoperiod. Exposure ratios can be used to translate measurements of UV radiation by horizontally fixed spectroradiometers into estimates of the mean exposures expected in populations at polar latitudes, although variations between individuals are large. The data have implications for determining the UV exposures of indigenous high-latitude populations.last_img read more

Premier Foods to shut two bakeries, 900 jobs to go

first_imgUnder-fire Premier Foods, the food giant behind the Hovis brand, has this morning announced plans to shut two of its bakeries, with the loss of 900 jobs.The company, which is believed to be looking for a potential buyer for its bread business, said the closures of sites in Birmingham and Greenford were a further step to “build value in bread”.It is also planning on withdrawing 130 distribution routes, because of its loss of a contract withThe Co-operative, which will lead to the closure of operations in Greenford, Birmingham, Mendlesham and Plymouth.Michael Clarke, chief executive of Premier Foods, said: “Having generated solid growth momentum in our Grocery Division, it is critical that we act to assure the long-term future of the Bread Division.“By simplifying our cost base, we can increase focus on improving efficiency, quality and service levels to help grow our core Hovis business. We recognise the impact these actions will have for our employees at the sites affected. Decisions will not be taken lightly, but they are necessary if we are to build a strong and successful future for the Bread Division and those who remain with our business.”Premier said the cost of the restructure would be £28m, with the majority of the cash charges coming in 2013, but added that it expected to “recover the majority of the cash impact”.It said: “On a pro forma basis, the savings from the proposed restructuring are expected to offset the margin forgone from the lost bread contract. These proposals are not expected to have an impact on 2012 trading profit.”last_img read more

Arab Spring exiles look back 10 years after Egypt uprising

first_imgLONDON (AP) — Ten years after protests rocked Egypt, many of the participants live in exile. They have fled to Europe and beyond out of fear for their personal safety under President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi, who continues a crackdown on the political opposition. The Jan. 25, 2011, uprising in Tahrir Square led to the quick ouster of autocratic President Hosni Mubarak. But events did not turn out the way the protesters had envisioned, leading to an even harsher successor in el-Sissi, who has jailed journalists, human rights activists and others. Thousands of academics, artists, writers and other intellectuals have fled their homeland, some never to return.last_img read more
