A review of scientific research trends within ASPA No. 126 Byers Peninsula, South Shetland Islands, Antarctica

first_imgByers Peninsula, Livingston Island, was one of the first sites in Antarctica designated for environmental conservation and scientific protection. Research on Byers Peninsula has been predominantly international, with 88 indexed publications (93% of them published during last 20 years) from 209 authors affiliated to 110 institutions from 22 nations, all of which are signatories to the Antarctic Treaty. Palaeontological research represented 20% of the published articles. The variety of freshwater bodies within the area has made Byers Peninsula a reference site for limnological studies (24% of papers). The site also contains numerous outcrops and periglacial features relevant to geology, stratigraphy and geomorphology (29%). Terrestrial biodiversity is extraordinarily high for lichens, bryophytes and invertebrates (15% of articles). Only 5% of the publications concern research on human activities, including both archaeology and impact monitoring. Glaciology, meteorology and climatology studies represent only 7% of papers. This work highlights the international and multidisciplinary nature of science conducted on Byers Peninsula in order to promote international cooperation and to provide information relevant for environmental management and conservation.last_img read more

How Martin Eakes became the most hated man in America (by payday lenders)

first_img continue reading » It’s almost impossible to have a conversation about secondary capital in the credit union industry without mentioning the two Self-Help credit unions — Self-Help Credit Union($1.0B, Durham, NC)  and  Self-Help Federal Credit Union($1.2B, Durham, NC)Self-Help Credit Union was the first credit union to obtain secondary capital when the enabling legislation 12 CFR 701.34 went into effect in 1996 and made the option available to low-income credit unions (LICUs). For several years, the two North Carolina-based institutions held the majority of secondary capital that was in the credit union system. Even today, the duo holds $148 million of the $292 million of secondary capital in the market.The genesis of Self-Help dates back to 1980, when Martin Eakes, a young lawyer from Durham, NC, began working to establish worker, food, housing, and farm cooperatives to help low-income North Carolinians buy homes and start businesses. Eakes took his endeavors a step further in 1984 when he worked with these cooperatives to create a new credit union that provided a full range of financial services.“We issued what was essentially non-voting preferred stock that was not insured by the NCUA and was at-risk in case the credit union failed or had losses,” says Eakes, who is a graduate of Davidson College, Yale Law School, and Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School of International and Public Affairs.
