Miocene-Recent continental alkalic basalts were erupted along the Antarctic Peninsula as a result of decompressional melting of the asthenosphere caused by the formation of slab-windows beneath the continental margin following the cessation of subduction. The basalts appear not to be related to a period of major lithospheric attenuation, nor were they formed as a result of the influence of a mantle plume. They exhibit strong trace-element and isotopic affinities with OIB, Sr- and Nd-isotope compositions ranging from 0.70269 to 0.70343 and 0.512863 to 0.51300, respectively, similar to the composition of HIMU OIB. However, new Pb-isotope analyses show that206Pb204Pbratios (18.79–19.28) fall within the range for E-type MORB withΔ84andΔ74varying from −28 to +26 and from +1 to +10, respectively.Δ84-values, Sr-isotope ratios and some LILE/HFSE ratios exhibit negative covariations withLanYbnand Nb/Y ratios implying some control of degree of partial melting on geochemical composition. Nb/U ratios (14–40) are considerably lower than most OIB and MORB. The basalts also have unusually low absolute abundances of Rb and Ba and high K/Ba and K/Rb ratios (50–140 and 400–1500, respectively). Correlated PbSrNd isotope and trace-element behaviour suggests that the asthenosphere from which these basalts were derived was subjected to multiple melt extraction/depletion events. One period of melt extraction was ancient (∼ 1.7 Ga) and similar to that affecting MORB source mantle, and was followed by a more recent (?Mesozoic) event. This more recent event resulted in increased U/Pb, U/Nb and U/Th ratios and further depletion in ultra-incompatible element such as Rb and Ba, causing high K/Rb and K/Ba ratios in the erupted lavas. This implies that the asthenosphere beneath the Antarctic Peninsula is heterogeneous on a small scale. Small-degree melts are capable of sampling geochemically, and possibly mineralogically, distinct mantle domains from larger-degree melts. During larger degrees of partial melting, the scale of melting approaches the scale of heterogeneity and integration of melts from different geochemical domains occurs.
By Stephanie SchupskaUniversity of GeorgiaWith floodwaters receding from Georgia homes and roadways following recent record rainfall, mold and mildew may seem like secondary threats to the many who find their properties damper than usual. But in a few weeks, that dank smell will alert people that they have a problem.University of Georgia Cooperative Extension coordinator Susan Culpepper is getting ahead of the storm, so to speak, by providing her area with information now about mold and mildew cleanup. Much of Douglas County, where she works, and Paulding County, where she lives, have been under water for days.“Once people regroup, once they can see or smell the mold or mildew,” they’re going to want information, she said. “We’re going to try to head off some of that by getting information out right now.”It’s not just floodwaters that cause mold and mildew problems, says Pamela Turner, a UGA Extension housing specialist with the College of Family and Consumer Sciences.“The humidity is already making everything grow,” she said. “The dead leaves on my plants are growing fuzzy mold.”People in any area that has received a large amount of rain should be on the lookout for fungus problems, particularly its musty, earthy smell. It often appears as a discoloration, stain or fuzzy growth. “Mold will live anywhere where there’s food,” she said. “You can find it growing on windows, and it’s not the glass, it’s the dirt on the window. It just needs a little food, moisture and a place to grow.”To keep mold and mildew growth at a minimum, run the air conditioner and keep the windows shut, which may be impossible for Georgians currently without electricity, she said. Air conditioning, fans or dehumidifiers will remove some of the moisture and keep the indoor humidity below 60 percent. Turn on the bathroom exhaust fan when taking a shower and the kitchen fan when cooking. Most mold and mildew problems start in bathrooms or kitchens, especially if there’s a leaky faucet or pipe.“The other place you might find mold is in a closet on your shoes or clothing. People usually leave their closet doors shut,” Turner said. “And closets are often jam-packed full of stuff, and there’s no air circulation. … I’ve seen little gray fuzz on handbags and shoes.”To solve this problem, she suggests leaving closet doors open or switching to louvered doors, which allow air to circulate.Keep an eye on crawl spaces. If water sits too long under a house, the chance for mold problems increases.For homes, basements or garages that have been flooded, the problem isn’t just water damaging the floors. “The water is going to be wicked up into your wallboard and insulation,” she said.Turner has a few tips to get rid of mold:1. Wear long sleeves, long pants, close-toed shoes, gloves, a mask and a hat when cleaning up large quantities of mold. Wash these clothes as soon as you’re done cleaning. Don’t wash them with other clothes.2. Use a mild detergent mixed with water to wash mold off hard surfaces. 3. Or, use a solution of either mild bleach and water or borax and water. With both, mix one-half cup of bleach or borax with 1 gallon of water. She prefers borax because it inhibits mold growth and is a little better on the environment.Put the solution in a bottle and spray the infected area lightly before wiping clean. “You don’t want to saturate the wall,” she said. “More is not better. More is just more.”4. Wash fabrics infected with mildew in the washing machine. If fabrics can handle it, use the hot water cycle.5. Tear out carpet and padding that have been in flood water. It’s almost impossible to get mold and mildew out of soft flooring materials. You will probably have to replace them.6. Hire a certified mold removal specialist in extreme cases, especially if water has saturated the walls and insulation. This is especially important for people with respiratory problems, immune deficiencies or other illnesses.For more information on mold and mildew, visit www.fcs.uga.edu/ext/pubs/housing.php?category=Indoor%20Air.

Pantilimon, the former Manchester City stopper, joins the Hornets on a three-year deal and will provide competition for current number one Heurelho Gomes. The 6ft 8in Romania international started the season as Sunderland’s first-choice goalkeeper but he has not played for Sam Allardyce’s side since their 3-1 defeat at Chelsea on December 19 and has failed to been included in the last three squads. A short statement on the Black Cats’ website said: “Sunderland AFC would like to thank Costel and wish him the very best for the future at his new club.” Watford, who are 12th in the Barclays Premier League after their 1-0 defeat at Swansea on Monday night, will gain a goalkeeper with over 50 appearances in the top flight. Pantilimon made seven league appearances for Manchester City in a three-year spell at the club before joining Sunderland in 2014. The 28-year-old moves to Vicarage Road for an undisclosed fee. Espanyol were also reported to be interested in signing him. Press Association Watford have signed goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon from Sunderland.
The following incidents were reported in the USC Dept. of Public Safety Daily Incident Log between Monday, June 10, and Tuesday, June 11. Crimes against a personAt 8:22 p.m. on June 10, DPS officers responded to a report of a non-USC male yelling for help near 2627 Severance Street, and when they contacted him, he said that he was being followed by unknown suspects. Further investigation revealed that the male was a drug user involved in a possible drug deal gone bad and Los Angeles Police Department officers who responded to the scene concluded that he had mental health issues. A Los Angeles Fire Department RA unit then transported the subject to California Hospital for voluntary psychiatric evaluation.Crimes against propertyAt 11:13 a.m. on June 10, a suspect entered an unsecured laboratory and removed several unattended dental tools in the Eileen and Kenneth T. Norris Dental Science Center.at 6:45 p.m. on June 10, DPS officers responded to a report of two suspects carrying two locked bicycles near the George Finley Bovard Administration Building and detained them for investigation. One of the bikes was registered to a student, but the officers were unable to contact her to determine if a crime had occurred. Both bikes were then impounded by the officers and the suspects were released after being advised against trespassing on university property.
