Since 1984, the Center for Coastal Studies has freed more than 200 large whales and other marine animals from life threatening entanglements, using techniques developed by Center staff. For many years, CCS was the only organization on the east coast of the United States to be federally authorized, by National Marine Fisheries Service, to disentangle large, free swimming whales, such as the humpback and the critically endangered North Atlantic right whale*. Over the years CCS has also disentangled other marine animals, like dolphins and porpoises, seals and sea turtles. If you want to help support these endeavors, please consider becoming a member.

The principle disentanglement technique, a modification of an old whaling practice called kegging, involves attaching large floats, or kegs, to the gear entangling the animal. The floats add buoyancy and drag to the animal, making it difficult for it to dive, eventually tiring it out. The desired result is a relatively immobile animal that is more safe to cut free. The kegging system is designed for easy release should the rescue attempt fail.

Because of the endangered status of many of these animals, especially the northern right whale, where approximately 433 animals are believed to exist, the successful release of just one animal may have a profound effect on the recovery of the population as a whole. Over fifty-percent of known right whale mortalities have been attributed to either entanglements or ship strikes. While rescue techniques may help with species recovery, CCS recognizes that the best solution is a preventative one. CCS has consistently contributed research and knowledge to the effort of understanding and reducing the rate of entanglement of large whales.

Starting in 1994, a Disentanglement Network was established in the U.S. and Canada to increase the scope of response to entangled marine animals. Coordinated by the Center and authorized and partially funded by the National Marine Fisheries Service in U.S. waters, the network is comprised of first response personnel that have extensive field experience with whales and small boat handling skills. Network members may assess, monitor, document and, in some cases, disentangle an animal. However, in situations where the animal is a candidate for rescue (dependent upon weather, resources, or complexity of the entanglement), the first responders may attach a satellite/VHF tag beacon to the entangled gear. The animal may then be tracked and rescued when conditions are more favorable.

EAST HANOVER, N.J. (CBSNewYork) —A New Jersey high school is trying out a new cheerleading policy that is already stirring up a real hornet’s nest after a mother complained when her daughter didn’t make the cut.


The school decided the squads need to be more inclusive, CBS2’s Lisa Rozner reported Tuesday.

Sophomore Stephanie Krueger said she’s been practicing four days a week for the last decade, dreaming of making it to Hanover Park High School’s top tier cheering team, known as the “Black Squad.”

Last month, the school was using a scoring system that featured coaches judging on things like jumps and choreography. Krueger and a number of girls made the team, but students said the parent of a classmate who placed on a lower-level cheer squad complained to the school.

In a letter to students and parents , the superintendent wrote the “process was invalid,” and that the historically elite team would be made up of every cheerleader in the 11th and 12th grades, instead of by skill level.

“All the time I’ve spent in my cheer gym practicing, constantly flipping, practicing my jumps, all was just like gone,” Krueger said. “I can’t believe, like, my hard work just dropped. It’s like telling a football player — your star varsity football player — they can’t play anymore because we want to make it all inclusive.”

The drop in local sales could not be mitigated by exports outside of the Australian and New Zealand market. On 5 February 2008, Mitsubishi Motors Australia announced it would be closing down its Adelaide assembly plant by the end of March. Between 700 and 1,000 direct jobs would be lost and up to 2,000 jobs will be lost in industries supporting Mitsubishi's local manufacturing operations. [46]

With operating losses ¥22 billion ($287 million) in Europe for the fiscal year to March due to stagnant sales in a continent beset by uncertainty of a raging debt crisis, finally in February 2012 Mitsubishi have decided to withdraw production in Europe by the end of 2012. On 1 October, it was announced that the Dutch industrial conglomerate VDL Groep had taken over NedCar from Mitsubishi, retaining all 1,500 employees. [47]

Main article: Mitsubishi Motors North America

In 1988, Mitsubishi opened a production facility in the United States in Normal, Illinois . The facility was known as Diamond-Star Motors and was initially a joint venture with Chrysler , however Chrysler sold its stake in the plant to Mitsubishi in 1993. After 1995 the facility was known as Mitsubishi Motors Manufacturing America (MMMA). At its peak in 2000, the facility produced over 222,000 vehicles per year, however following the decline of Mitsubishi in North America, the plant operated well below capacity for years.

Finally, in July 2015, Mitsubishi announced that it would close the plant by November, but would continue to sell automobiles in North America. In 2014, the plant had produced just 69,000 vehicles, roughly one quarter of its capacity. [48] Production at the plant ended on 30 November 2015, and most of the employees were laid off. The plant continued to operate with a minimal staff to produce replacement parts until May 2016, after which it closed permanently. [49]

In early 2016, Mitsubishi partner Nissan found discrepancies between Mitsubishi information and actual fuel consumption while working in new Coach Suede RoundToe Loafers Store Outlet From China Low Shipping Cheap Sale Best Store To Get kW2UoP
for both companies, the eK Wagon, eK Space, Nissan Dayz and Nissan Dayz Roox. Mitsubishi manufactures micro cars for Nissan, which no longer makes that class of vehicle itself. Mitsubishi admitted that they had been giving wrong information on fuel consumption from 2002 onwards, using inaccurate test methods. [50] Later, the company said it used fuel economy testing methods that did not comply with Japanese regulations for 25 years, much longer than previously known. [51] Mitsubishi management said they did not know about the issue and that the wrong information came from the micro car development department. They ordered an investigation led by investigators not affiliated with the company. [52] The resultant scandal culminated in Nissan acquiring a controlling interest in MMC in May 2016. [53] Nissan agreed to invest 237.4 billion yen ($2.2 billion US) in exchange for receiving a 34% ownership stake in Mitsubishi Motors. Due to dilution of existing shares, other Mitsubishi group companies (Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Mitsubishi Corp., and Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ) will see their combined holdings in Mitsubishi Motors fall to about 20% from 34% currently.

If we want to produce knowledge of value, it is equally important to acknowledge the impossibility of keeping our own hands clean. It is inevitable that we bring to research all our preconceptions, theoretical biases, personal experiences and spatiotemporal locatedness, even before accessing any of the putative ‘raw’ material. But that data itself can never be clean and proper. As Gitelman and Jackson put it, “data are always already ‘cooked’” 16 (p2). At the outset of all research, choices have already been made about what constitutes necessary and sufficient data, what is to be included and excluded, the place and the time frame of collection, the methodology employed, and so on. Moreover, rather than the data sets of bioscience and social science being in opposition, they may tell a similar intersecting story, as, for example, in our recipients’ feelings of otherness being mirrored in the incorporation of non-self DNA. We must take account of what Fausto-Sterlingcalls ‘biocultural’ systems in which cells and culture construct each other. 19 Instead of closing down possibilities and expecting to arrive at clear and singular answers, productive research in most life sciences is likely to be inherently messy and openended. Messy research can generate endless new questions on the level of philosophical exploration, sociological enquiry, or strictly biological investigation that are as mobile and nomadic as the living matter they investigate. We fully concur with the similar conclusions voiced by Viney et al in saying that medical humanities should embrace ‘the messy flexibility and inconclusiveness gained from having no necessary or predetermined trajectory’ 8 (p4).

In our case, although we initially took the conventional social sciences route for qualitative research, the intention was always to mix it up with many other perspectives and forms of data. We are now fully confident that we achieved much deeper levels of understanding for precisely that reason. One major issue we contended with was the differential expectation of what could count as relevant data. For example, the value of videoing the conversations was not immediately clear to all of us. After considerable methodological review, social scientist Poole crafted and proposed a visual methodology supported by health sociologist McKeever and critical theorist Shildrick. The clinicians Ross and Abbey were worried about overintrusion and a potential breach of privacy. Since the first viewing, however, there has been full agreement as to the efficacy of audio-visual data, and in multiple presentations that have incorporated short clips, we have observed how compelling it has been. One powerful constraint on the clinicians was an anxiety about losing credibility among peers, but once the barrier of an unfamiliar methodology was breeched we have all fully endorsed the process. Similarly, the reinterpretation of the materials by diverse artists was a particular point of resistance, both in terms of the bioethical implications of taking the raw data beyond the usual parameters of consent, and in their capacity to fashion new forms of knowledge production. Although the Research Ethics Board approval that allowed us to seek participants’ consent for such further use was slow and arduous, the vast majority of the respondents across all the cohorts agreed to such use of interview material. After a frustrating hiatus, approval was finally granted, and the first semipublic showing of the artistic responses opened up highly constructive new perspectives on what is at stake in heart transplantation. In offering a very different form of data, the artworks have proved a significant way to engage with professionals, the lay public, transplant recipients and donor families alike, shaking up expectations, and moving beyond the confines of academic journals. After additional exhibitions, iii the initial suspicions between team members have long since vanished, although some disagreements inevitably arise.
