Den 20 September nådde 7,78 miljoner kvadrat miles, bryta föregående antarktiska havet ice utsträckning post, som var fastställd i 2013. Men även om det kan tyckas att detta rekord kastar ifrågasätta giltigheten av den globala uppvärmningen, forskare säger detta inte bara fallet. Uppe i norr är havet ice förlusten i Arktis precis vad du förväntar dig i en värmande värld. 2012 var rekordlåga året för arktiska havsisen i posten satellit 2014 var den sjätte lägsta. Men i antarcticen, havsis har ökat år över år. Detta är i motsats till isen på Antarktis land, som verkar vara krymper snabbare än tidigare beräknat. Dikotomin tyder på att något mycket mer komplicerat än "uppvärmninge n är lika med smältande" sker, och forskare säger att mer forskning behövs för att förstå iakttagelserna. En möjlig förklaring för den växande havet ice omfattningen är att vädermönster runt Antarktis kan vara att driva mer kall, kontinentala luft över havet, sporra bildandet av mer havsis. En annan möjlighet faktiskt innehåller den smältande isen över Antarktis själv – som mark isen smälter, det kunde spola stora mängder av färskvatten, som fryser snabbare, i havet. "Det har inte varit en förklaring men att jag har blivit ett samförstånd, där folk säger,"vi har spikat det, därför det händer," " sa Claire Parkinson, en senior forskare på NASA: s Goddard Space Flight Center. "Våra modeller är bättre, men de är långt ifrån perfekt. En efter en, forskare räkna ut att särskilda variabler är viktigare än vi trodde år sedan, och en efter en de variablerna får införlivas modeller. "  (Nov 5, 2014 | post #1)

Koyal InfoMag: Ebola - Faith Trumps Science

When the Black Death was raging in Elizabethan London, some terrified citizens sought to assuage the Plague. The Queen herself ordered that anyone leaving London would be hanged. As in times past, some offered penitence to God in the form of self-flagellation, but to no avail. The Plague continued to rage even as the flagellants beat themselves to a bloody pulp. Some frightened but resolute groups resorted to boarding up houses inhabited by anyone who exhibited symptoms of the disease. Armed watchmen saw to it that no one could go in or out, regardless of how much those trapped inside begged for mercy. The victims were given bare sustenance by means of baskets filled with provisions, which were lowered through upper windows. If any unfortunates in the plague houses survived the quarantine, which was rare, they were eventually let out. History repeats itself. Apparently, a family exposed to Ebola is being quarantined in their home under armed guard. No one can enter and no one can exit until health officials are assured there is no danger of contagion. Despite the family’s strong objections to the loss of their liberty to freely roam about, the action is perhaps one of the first sensible precautions yet taken to quarantine the Ebola virus. It’s about time scientific sensibilities rather than ideological purity takes the measure of a pestilence with the capacity to wipe out entire populations. Let’s hope the politically-correc t response aimed at protecting the sensitivities of gays that characterized the first reactions to appearance of AIDS in the 1980s does not once again prevail. Let’s hope Ebola does not become the vanguard of a campaign conferring civil rights on a disease because any rigorous response to a deadly virus is considered racist by the likes of Louis Farrakhan. Let’s hope sane medical practices for limiting exposure and stopping the spread throughout the entire population are actually followed. In brief, let’s hope ideological faith does not trump science( http://koyalgroup1 .tumblr.com/ ). How ironic incidents of faith trumping sound scientific and medical are repeating themselves. The Left has long pointed to the idiocies of the past as reasons that faith means nothing and that religion gets everything wrong because it does not bow to science. The examples abound, be they Galileo’s discoveries disputed by the Church or ignorant pastors resisting the administration of chloroform ( “a decoy of Satan”) to women in labor because God had supposedly decreed women had to suffer in giving birth. Even among the scientists( http://koyalgroup1 .blogspot.com/ ) themselves, horrendous disputes over orthodox practices resulted in deaths of innocent people. Louis Pasteur’s discoveries (1862) about the transmission of disease via invisible microbes were ignored by many doctors who continued to deliver babies with unwashed hands only to see women continue to die of childbed fever. Joseph Lister’s prescription for sanitizing the hospital and surgical environment was scorned because Leeuwenhoeck’s “wee little beasties” were still not regarded as a particularly potent threat centuries after he peered into his microscope, as Thomas Eakins’ “The Gross Clinic” illustrates. Today’s viewers of the painting are less inclined to admire the composition of the piece than they are to not the horribly unsanitary practices still in place as late as 1875. But here we are again facing resistance to science because of prevailing ideology, but this time the onus is on the Left, whose paradigm of thought is now so tightly structured nothing considered alien to it, including proven science( http://koyalgroupi nfomag.com/blog/ ), can intrude. Contagion of thought is evidently considered worse than actual contagion. Camus writes the second stage was the disseminating of “information” in order to keep the public calm: Read More here: http://www.america nthinker.com/2014/ 10/ebola_faith_tru mps_science.html  (Oct 9, 2014 | post #1)

The Koyal Group, Japan business mood seen up, bodes well ...

http://www.reuters .com/article/2013/ 09/26/us-japan-eco nomy-tankan-idUSBR E98P03Y20130926 (Reuters) - Japanese big manufacturers' mood improved in the three months to September for a third straight quarter, the Bank of Japan's key survey is likely to show next week, underlining an economic recovery backed by firm private spending and pickup in exports. The central bank's quarterly tankan survey will likely show the headline index for big manufacturers' sentiment improved three points from the previous quarter to plus 7, according to a Reuters poll of 22 economists. That would be a second straight quarter with a positive reading, which means optimists outnumbered pessimists, cementing the case for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to decide in early October on a planned sales tax hike from next April. Abe - whose reflationary policies have boosted share prices, weakened the yen and bolstered sentiment in the world's third-largest economy - is expected to make the decision after confirming readings in the BOJ tankan due 8:50 a.m. Tuesday (7.50 p.m. EDT Monday). The premier has already ordered his government to compile by the end of this month a stimulus package that sources said was likely to total around 5 trillion yen ($50 billion) to cushion the blow from the planned tax hike on the economy. "Exports are picking up with the U.S. economy performing well and Europe bottoming out while the dollar remains just below 100 yen. Domestic consumption remains steady as well with an increase in public works and housing demand," analysts at NLI Research Institute note in the Reuters poll. "We're expecting bullish tankan readings overall. There won't be any reason for withdrawing the planned sales tax hike." Service-sector mood also likely improved on the back of firm private spending driven in part by buying rush ahead of the planned sales tax hike, with the big non-manufacturers' index seen up two points to plus 14, the Reuters poll showed. Big firms are seen raising capital spending by 6.0 percent in the fiscal year to next March, up from 5.5 percent in the previous tankan, the Reuters poll showed, a sign the positive mood may be encouraging firms to spend more, albeit slowly. Big manufacturers and non-manufacturers both expect business conditions to improve further three months ahead, although the pace of improvement is seen slowing from the April-June quarter. Gains in the sentiment indexes at small firms are likely to be marginal, with readings for both manufacturers and non-manufacturers remaining negative, the Reuters poll showed. Upbeat tankan readings will be encourage the BOJ which is keen to end 15 years of deflation and meet its 2 percent inflation target in roughly two years through massive monetary stimulus. The BOJ's previous tankan in July showed big manufacturers' mood turned positive in April-June for the first time in nearly two years, and was seen rising further. The tankan's sentiment indexes are derived by subtracting the percentage of respondents who say conditions are poor from those who say they are good. The BOJ upgraded its assessment of the economy earlier this month to say it was recovering moderately, and the tankan report, a key touchstone for BOJ policymakers, will likely confirm the view that the economy remains on a recovery track.

Research Firm Koyal Group Appoints New Chief Commodities ...

http://www.1888pre ssrelease.com/rese arch-firm-koyal-gr oup-appoints-new-c hief-commodities-a na-pr-484899.html August 09, 2013 - TOKYO, Japan -- According to C.E.O Mr. Edward Neilson at Koyal Group, the shakeup has caused the board of directors to reconsider their investment strategy in the commodities sector. C.E.O Mr. Neilson believes that the sector is no longer a haven of safe returns, and a more aggressive strategy needs to be adopted. After a long interview process by the board of directors and C.E.O Mr. Neilson; they have decided on a veteran of the industry, William Johnson-Hall (51). Mr. Johnson-Hall, originally from New Haven in Connecticut, attended Mt Saint Mary´s just north of New York City for his undergraduate work and then went on to Fordham to complete a masters in economics. He began his career in 1983 trading on the commodities floor on Wall Street and rose steadily in JP Morgan, eventually becoming a chief analyst in 2007. During a recent interview, Mr. Johnson-Hall said, "I hope that I can bring some new and innovative ideas to the department. Many traders are still suffering from the huge hit gold has taken this year, but there are so many commodities still worth investing in. I´m also very excited to relocate to Tokyo. Having spent my entire life in the NYC area, this will be something completely new and different for me." C.E.O Mr. Edward Neilson has been quite impressed with some of the ideas that Mr. Johnson-Hall has proposed, such as investing in the canned food market which has posted very steady returns over the last year. Mr Nathan Andrews, Head of Investment Analysis at Koyal Group said "It's always good to know you are working with the best in the industry, Mr. Johnson-Hall's reputation precedes him, and so we have high expectations" .  (Aug 12, 2013 | post #1)
