Because of the lack of a definitive air link to an international gravity base station, the Antarctic Peninsula gravity network was originally, and still is, tied to the Potsdam gravity system via long ship links to South America (Renner 1981, Kennett 1965). An indirect link from the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) scientific station at Rothera to an International Gravity Standardisation Net 1971 (IGSN 71) base station in the UK had previously been made via a link to the BAS gravity station on the Falkland Islands in Port Stanley (McGibbon 1988). Whilst the apparent gravity difference between Port Stanley and the base station in the UK had been calculated via a two-way air tie using a LaCoste and Romberg meter (McGibbon 1988) and later strengthened with three two-way air ties using four LaCoste and Romberg meters (Bassett 1987), the link between Port Stanley and Rothera was based on a one-way tie that included a lengthy ship borne passage (McGibbon 1988). The weakness of this link insured that the adopted gravity value at Rothera continued to be based on the ship ties made by Griffiths et al. (1964) and Kennett (1965). This note describes the strengthening of the gravity link between Rothera and Port Stanley and the subsequent reassignment of the adopted gravity value at Rothera Station.
The Superannuation Arrangements of the University of London (SAUL) is consulting with members to end its final salary defined benefit (DB) link and instead calculate benefits on a career-average salary basis.The £2.3bn (€3.3bn) pension scheme for employers associated with the University of London – a collection of institutions – is set to reveal a £310m deficit in its 2015 financial statement, leaving it 88% funded.A 12-person board, split evenly between sponsoring employers and union members, set about creating a deficit-reduction plan and tackle funding pressures on universities in the UK.The proposals recommend breaking the final salary link from April 2016 and shifting all future accrual to a career-average basis. They also freeze contribution levels for members at 6% and increase them for employers to 16% from 13%.The proposals are now out for consultation with members after receiving backing from the Unison and Unite trade unions, employers and the trustees of the scheme.The scheme already has close to 6,000 of its 38,000 members in a career-average scheme.However, 8,280 active members will be affected by the expected closure next year.Overall, it has 13,500 active members across final salary and career-average schemes, with close to 16,000 deferred.SAUL becomes the second multi-employer university pension fund to make such changes after the UK’s largest scheme, the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS), introduced similar reforms.The USS benefit change was subject to a dispute between members and employers after the latter tried to change the scheme to career-average and cap the salary for DB benefits.The £42bn scheme is set to become a hybrid career-average DB and defined contribution (DC) scheme, as members went to vote on proposals in January, after trade unions backed the final recommendations.USS will cap DB entitlements at £55,000, with contributions taken from salaries above this being placed into a new DC scheme.Contributions from employers will be 18%, members 8%, with employers providing 12% of the 18% for members earning more than the salary threshold in the DC section.In the financial year to the end of March 2014, USS reported a deficit of £7.2bn as it began a triennial valuation, which is expected to reveal a substantially higher figure.
During a recent visit to South Africa, former Liberian president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf sat down for an interview with the eNCA, an online television channel – and then abruptly walked off the set.The former president was in South Africa to attend programs commemorating 25 years of national independence and democracy in South Africa.Naturally, it was the perfect time to reflect on democratic success stories not just in South Africa but from other African nations. President Sirleaf is the latest African leader to have exited power without contention, and she has been handsomely rewarded and celebrated for that aspect of her legacy.By the same token, however, that is not the sum total of her legacy. She has to be just as well prepared to answer for the mistakes as she is to receive the accolades!But this is the irony of her legacy – that she was able to project democratic ideals in the eyes of the international community but at home did not believe she was accountable to the Liberian people or anyone else! That she would arrogantly walk off the set of an interview as if she owes NO ONE any answers — what message was she sending to the world?Madam Sirleaf could not possibly have thought that no one would ever ask her the Taylor question again. A politician as astute as she would by now have thought through that question a thousand times and fashioned her answer to every possible question related to the Taylor issue.But what does one do when there is no cogent explanation? What does one say? One diplomatically avoids the question and counts on the good graces of the interviewer not to press the issue further.But what happens when the question has never been answered, and an answer is needed at a time when Africa needs all of the lessons she can learn from success stories as well as past mistakes? When those answers need to go deeper than skimming the surface; when the answers are complex and need to be delved into?Madam Sirleaf took offense, told the interviewer she felt “hijacked” and walked off the set.But the answers to that question would have benefited not just the entire continent of Africa but the entire comity of nations still struggling to find their way – – the right way.Take Venezuela for example, where an opposition leader practically staged a one-man coup, declared himself president and was backed by many of his countrymen as well as a number of nations. Could Venezuela have learned from Liberia’s mistakes? This business of backing a rebel leader to escape a democratically elected but corrupt leader is still a matter of desperation for alternatives that many nations are still grappling with.What the world didn’t know until she walked off that set though, was that refusing to answer the pertinent questions was the modus operandi for twelve straight years of the Ellen Sirleaf administration. The questions were never answered as to what happened to the money that disappeared from National Oil Company of Liberia (NOCAL) coffers while her son, Robert Sirleaf, presided as chairman of the board of the entity and special advisor to his mother. As a matter of fact, the questions were never answered as to why she had three sons in senior positions in her government – previously condemned by her as “nepotism” in the Samuel Doe and other administrations. The questions were never answered as to how the bodies of the late Harry Greaves and Michael Allison (both critics of the lack of accountability surrounding NOCAL) turned up on the Monrovia coastline.What the world didn’t know until now was that this was not even the first time an interview was abruptly ended, and over the self-same Taylor issue. In 2009 the Liberian Observer Online, operating from the United States at the time, received a phone call from then Liberian Ambassador to Washington, D.C., M. Nathaniel Barnes. He stated that President Sirleaf was in the States to promote her just released memoir, This Child Will Be Great. Barnes asked the Editor whether she would be interested in interviewing the Head of State. We obliged.The editor dropped everything, purchased a copy, read it in two days and arrived in Texas with twenty-six questions for Madam Sirleaf, who was due to address a gathering at the Southern Methodist University in Dallas. Twenty-three of the questions covered the various other issues addressed in the book. The last three dealt with the Taylor question which, though addressed in the book, had left more questions than it answered.When the Observer Online Editor posed the question as to whether the president hoped Mr. Taylor would face the full weight of the law, Madam Sirleaf skirted the issue and refused to answer the question. When the journalist, taken aback, pressed the issue, the president’s son, Robert Sirleaf, interrupted the interview and blasted the journalist – with complete disregard, of course, for the fact that the tape recorder was still on. The interview was effectively terminated with the journalist being accused of attempting to embarrass the president.As the journalist exited the Presidential Suite at the guest mansion where the president was being hosted, Robert followed her into the hallway, still blasting. One of several Secret Service Agents assigned on the president’s floor positioned himself between Robert and the journalist (a young lady). When Robert realized the young lady was being protected by the Agent, he returned to the suite.All the while, his mother never uttered a word to bring his completely unprofessional behavior under control.The Agent accompanied the journalist down to the ground floor via elevator and returned to his post on the president’s floor.Madam Sirleaf accurately answered the South African reporter this week when he asked her whether she felt she owed Liberians an apology for financially supporting Charles Taylor with an emphatic “No.” And when pressed a second time, she responded, “I said No.” She also told the reporter she felt the war had been necessary because Samuel had commandeered the country’s wealth.If Liberians were ever looking for an answer from the former president, there it is.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
SANTA CLARA — No one seems to care how Russell Wilson threw four touchdown passes against the 49ers on Dec. 2. Instead, it’s another of his throws that’s all the rage heading into Sunday’s rematch when his Seattle Seahawks visit the 49ers.When Wilson picked up linebacker Fred Warner’s stray shoe and chucked it to the side, that triggered a series of unfortunate events for the 49ers, and it cost coach Kyle Shanahan a $25,000 fine he’s appealing.“What I would like?
