Beak shapes in nine species of Southern Ocean octopodids were measured using seven size-standardized ratios. The results were analysed using principal component analysis and discriminant function analysis and show that beak shape may be used as a taxonomic character to distinguish between genera, but not between species. Stepwise discriminant function analysis indicated that all seven ratios were required to maximize discrimination between beaks. A phenogram constructed from a matrix of Mahalanobis distances differed from a dendrogram produced from genetic data. This suggests that, although useful for discrimination, beak morphology is probably not suitable for constructing phylogenies.
The study of animal foraging behaviour is of practical ecological importance1, and exemplifies the wider scientific problem of optimizing search strategies2. Lévy flights are random walks, the step lengths of which come from probability distributions with heavy power-law tails3, 4, such that clusters of short steps are connected by rare long steps. Lévy flights display fractal properties, have no typical scale, and occur in physical3, 4, 5 and chemical6 systems. An attempt to demonstrate their existence in a natural biological system presented evidence that wandering albatrosses perform Lévy flights when searching for prey on the ocean surface7. This well known finding2, 4, 8, 9 was followed by similar inferences about the search strategies of deer10 and bumblebees10. These pioneering studies have triggered much theoretical work in physics (for example, refs 11, 12), as well as empirical ecological analyses regarding reindeer13, microzooplankton14, grey seals15, spider monkeys16 and fishing boats17. Here we analyse a new, high-resolution data set of wandering albatross flights, and find no evidence for Lévy flight behaviour. Instead we find that flight times are gamma distributed, with an exponential decay for the longest flights. We re-analyse the original albatross data7 using additional information, and conclude that the extremely long flights, essential for demonstrating Lévy flight behaviour, were spurious. Furthermore, we propose a widely applicable method to test for power-law distributions using likelihood18 and Akaike weights19, 20. We apply this to the four original deer and bumblebee data sets10, finding that none exhibits evidence of Lévy flights, and that the original graphical approach10 is insufficient. Such a graphical approach has been adopted to conclude Lévy flight movement for other organisms13, 14, 15, 16, 17, and to propose Lévy flight analysis as a potential real-time ecosystem monitoring tool17. Our results question the strength of the empirical evidence for biological Lévy flights.
The flux of > 2 MeV electrons at geosynchronous orbit is used by space weather forecasters as a key indicator of enhanced risk of damage to spacecraft in low, medium or geosynchronous Earth orbits. We present a methodology that uses the amount of time a single input dataset (solar wind data or geomagnetic indices) exceeds a given threshold to produce deterministic and probabilistic forecasts of the > 2 MeV flux at GEO exceeding 1000 or 10000 cm‐2 s‐1 sr‐1 within up to 10 days. By comparing our forecasts with measured fluxes from GOES 15 between 2014 and 2016, we determine the optimum forecast thresholds for deterministic and probabilistic forecasts by maximising the ROC and Brier Skill Scores respectively. The training dataset gives peak ROC scores of 0.71 to 0.87 and peak Brier Skill Scores of ‐0.03 to 0.32. Forecasts from AL give the highest skill scores for forecasts of up to 6‐days. AL, solar wind pressure or SYM‐H give the highest skill scores over 7‐10 days. Hit rates range over 56‐89% with false alarm rates of 11‐53%. Applied to 2012, 2013 and 2017, our best forecasts have hit rates of 56‐83% and false alarm rates of 10‐20%. Further tuning of the forecasts may improve these. Our hit rates are comparable to those from operational fluence forecasts, that incorporate fluence measurements, but our false alarm rates are higher. This proof‐of‐concept shows that the geosynchronous electron flux can be forecast with a degree of success without incorporating a persistence element into the forecasts.
January 29, 2018By Emily KettererTheStatehouseFile.comINDIANAPOLIS—Legislation that would that would add more reporting and tracking requirements to Indiana’s abortion regulations passed a Senate committee Wednesday.Among the provisions in the 12 pages of Senate Bill 340 are more inspections of abortion clinics, additions to informed consent forms patients must review and sign, and the reporting of complications to the Indiana Department of Health.Those in opposition to the bill said the regulations are unnecessary while those in support saw them as a contribution to the safety of women.Part of the bill mandates an annual inspection of abortion clinics and requires more information from those applying to open clinics. Sen. Liz Brown, R-Fort Wayne, one of the authors of the bill, said it’s important to know what is happening inside clinics.“There’s that infamous abortion doctor in Philadelphia where women died,” Brown said. “We’d want to know if there’s a physician out there who are killing women because of surgical complications or administering medicine improperly.”Lynne Bunch, the vice president of patient services at Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, said the legislation is not about safety and the bill would eliminate the safe access to abortion.“Decades of data also show abortion in the United States is one of the safest procedures in medicine,” Bunch said. “Please do not set up a system whereby the avenue to safe legal abortion is prevented with more hurdles and will eventually eliminate it.”Christina Francis, an anti-abortion OB-GYN from Fort Wayne, said the complications that arise from abortions often go unreported, making informed consent difficult.Christina Francis, an OB-GYN from Fort Wayne, discusses women’s health in favor of Senate Bill 340.Photo by Kirsten NielsenTheStatehouseFile.com“Unfortunately, many abortion providers report a complication rate of zero or nearly zero, but this is only because many of them do not see their own complications,” Francis said. “Many women present themselves to a local emergency room, and their complications are not tied back to their abortions.”Sue Swayze of Indiana Right to Life said they have been working for years to get regulations on reporting complications.SB 340 identifies by name 27 possible complications that the bill says can be linked back to abortions. The bill adds a number of questions that must be asked of patients who show up in the hospital with any of the complications, which must be reported to the health department.Haylee Brannon, who had an abortion, said the list of psychological and physical complications to report is meant to shame women who have had one.Haylee Brannon shares her abortion story and opposition to Senate Bill 340.Photo by Kirsten NielsenTheStatehouseFile.com“I would have reported how mentally and emotionally exhausting it was to jump through so many hoops in order to obtain a procedure I knew I was certain I wanted and I knew was 99 percent safe,” Brannon said. “I would have reported that the only trauma I endured was from pulling into clinic lined with protestors waving posters of dead babies.”Another provision expands informed consent, requiring physicians to tell women of alternatives such as the Safe Haven law. This law allows a person to anonymously surrender an infant to an emergency services establishment without risk of arrest or prosecution.Physicians must also provide all information about the medication before prescribing an abortion-inducing drug, which is more commonly used today.Swayze said the drug regulation is important because it is currently not as regulated and women are four times more likely to experience a complication if they take an abortion-inducing pill.“I don’t want them to not understand the chemical activity that is going to be happening in their body,” Swayze said.The bill passed in a 6-1 vote. Sen. Tim Lanane, D-Anderson, was the only member in opposition to the bill. He said the bill is unconstitutional and takes away the right of women to choose.“This is nothing but big brother state government sticking their nose into an area of a person’s life where they have no business knowing about,” Lanane said.FOOTNOTE: Emily Ketterer is a reporter for TheStatehouseFile.com, a news website powered by Franklin College journalism students.

Among the many reunions taking place in 2016, one that we simply cannot wait for is Béla Fleck & The Flecktones. The bluegrass-jazz ensemble toured regularly from their formation in 1988 until their hiatus in 2012, but are returning for their first shows in four years in just a few short weeks.A number of incredible musicians have been a part of the Flecktones experience, including Béla Fleck, Victor Wooten, Roy Wooten, Jeff Coffin, and Howard Levy. The band has also collaborated with the likes of Sam Bush, Chick Corea, Branford Marsalis and more throughout their career, and released a total of 14 albums! There’s no shortage of great music available for their otherworldly performances.In celebration of the band’s upcoming revival, we came upon this beautiful audio recording from the band’s performance at the Variety Playhouse in Atlanta, GA, performed on this date exactly 20 years ago (4/26/96). While we posted about Phish’s Jazz Fest set on the same day, this Flecktones show sees the virtuosic musicians taking each composition for an experimental journey.Thanks to a taper named Terry, listen to the whole show below:
Introduce customers to advanced server technology that’s ideally suited to transformational workloadsWhen Dell acquired EMC in September 2016, it didn’t just gain the industry’s leading enterprise storage vendor. Suddenly, Dell was also able to tap into a rich vein of Machine Learning expertise in EMC. This capability now sees Dell EMC adopting a leading position in the fast-growing Artificial Intelligence market, offering technologies and services that span the edge to the core to the cloud.Thanks to the inherent product optimization and consultancy expertise offered by the combined company, Dell EMC partners are now ideally placed to benefit from customers’ ever-growing interest in the potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to deliver business growth.Industry analyst Moor Insights & Strategy reports that worldwide demand for AI technologies is surging, with organizations of all sizes identifying possible application benefits in terms of productivity, revenues and product improvements1. In fact, IDC forecasts that total spending on AI will ramp up to tens of billions of dollars by the early 2020s.2Tap into the interest in AI initiativesAI is a transformative technology that has the power to change the way organizations interact and add intelligence to many products and services through new insights that were previously hidden in vast pools of data. The breadth of AI applications continues to grow, as progressive companies continue to advance and explore the capabilities of the underlying technologies of Machine Learning and Deep Learning.AI is a branch of computer science that deals with the simulation of intelligent behavior in computers and the capability of a machine to imitate human intelligence. It can cover everything from characterizing something as ‘simple’ as recognizing an object in an image to applying reason and ethical values in problem solving – something far beyond current capabilities within the field.Machine Learning uses statistical analysis modeling for use cases such as resource allocation, predictive analytics, predictive maintenance, text classification, bioinformatics, trend discovery, forecasting, face detection and pricing. These ‘classical’ statistical approaches are generally well suited for uncovering trends and categories in numerical data, and do not require massive training datasets or hardware accelerators.Deep Learning, meanwhile, is all about discovering and modeling complex unstructured data for perception and recognition purposes. It’s now widely used for computer vision, speech recognition, natural language processing, social network processing, autonomous driving, image processing and classification, and financial market modeling.A Smart approach to driving insights and improvementsIn its report on the subject1, Moor suggests that interest in the potential of AI is primarily driven by two key motivations:To improve operational efficiencies – what it refers to as ‘Smart Operations’; andTo enhance products and services through data-driven insights and use of unstructured data types, such as voice and images, to enhance human-machine interaction – what it calls ‘Smart Products and Services’.Smart Operations includes everything from e-commerce product recommendation engines to cyber security, customer sales and support chatbots, financial trading, fraud detection, enhanced public safety services and supply chain optimization.Smart Products and Services can be found in the fields of medical diagnosis and treatment, drug discovery, hospital clinical care management, autonomous vehicles, drones, consumer electronics, and threat intelligence and prevention.Over the next decade, AI is predicted to have an impact on virtually every product and business process. This means there’s more than likely something that your customers are currently doing that could benefit from AI input to enhance efficiencies and/or outcomes.AI requires modernized compute with optimized server technologyAcross all business sizes and sectors, it’s widely acknowledged that modernizing a company’s compute infrastructure is an essential first step towards implementing AI initiatives. Because AI requires specialized and optimized compute.Organizations wishing to implement AI initiatives are finding that they need to invest in the advanced level of computational horsepower that Machine Learning, especially Deep Learning, demands – as well as high-bandwidth, low-latency networking and storage capabilities.While modernization does require some investment, a recent Forrester Consulting research study3 reported that an infrastructure upgrade will pay off not only in financial ROI terms, but also in additional business value, such as improved customer experience and IT operational efficiency.There’s no denying that AI costs are significant, but so are the returns. Despite hesitations around the upfront cost, 51% of companies in the Forrester study reported that they’re expecting an ample return of between 2x and 5x in terms of their AI investments and the additional business value.The inefficiencies of outdated infrastructureThe Forrester survey found that the largest challenge to AI in the data center was antiquated infrastructure that made it difficult for the IT organization to support the business in an agile manner. Enterprises especially called out the inefficiencies due to a lack of server and workload automation, as well as insufficient security and legacy software that could not be upgraded.The latest Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, powered by next-generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, are the bedrock of the modern data center – with scalable business architecture, intelligent automation and integrated security built in at every step.As a Dell EMC partner, you’re ideally placed to promote servers such as the brand new Dell EMC PowerEdge R940xa (optimized to run AI and machine learning workloads) and the Dell EMC PowerEdge R840 (ideal for turbocharged in-database analytics), which will help your customers to maximize performance and optimize efficiency right across the business – with no compromises.We’ve also recently developed pre-configured ‘Ready Bundles’ for Machine Learning and Deep Learning at scale. These are designed to simplify the configuration process, lower costs and speed deployment of distributed multi-node Machine Learning/Deep Learning clusters – to make life easier for AI practitioners at every stage of their implementation.To learn more about how Dell EMC PowerEdge server technology is supporting and ideally suited to AI initiatives, read the whitepaper now.1 Moor Insights & Strategy report, commissioned by Dell EMC, ‘The Artificial Intelligence Starter Guide for IT Leaders’, May 2018.2 IDC, ‘Worldwide Spending on Cognitive and Artificial Intelligence Systems Forecast to Reach $12.5 Billion This Year, According to New IDC Spending Guides’, April 3, 2017.3 Forrester Consulting Thought Leadership Paper, commissioned by Dell EMC, ‘CIOs Need To Take The Lead On AI For Transformational Outcomes Across The Company’, May 2018.
