Increasing rainfall accelerates thaw slump activity in northwestern Canada. Abstract It is anticipated that an increase in rainfall will have significant impacts on the geomorphology of permafrost landscapes. Field observations, remote sensing and historical climate data were used to investigate the drivers, processes and feedbacks that perpetuate the growth of large retrogressive thaw slumps. Analysis of Landsat images — indicate that the number and size of active slumps and debris tongue deposits has increased significantly with the recent intensification of rainfall. The analyses of high resolution climatic and photographic time-series for summers and shows strong linkages amongst temperature, precipitation and the downslope sediment flux from active slumps. Ground ice thaw supplies meltwater and sediments to the slump scar zone and drives diurnal pulses of surficial flow. Coherence in the timing of down valley debris tongue deposition and fine-scaled observations of sediment flux indicate that heavy rainfall stimulates major mass flow events. Evacuation of sediments from the slump scar zone can help to maintain a headwall of exposed ground ice, perpetuating slump growth and leading to larger disturbances. The development of debris tongue deposits divert streams and increase thermoerosion to initiate adjacent slumps.

Nissan said on Monday an internal investigation triggered by a tip-off from a whistleblower had revealed that Ghosn engaged in wrongdoing including personal use of company money and under-reporting for years how much he was earning. He was arrested and would be fired from Nissan’s board this week, it said. Ghosn is also chairman and chief executive of Nissan’s French partner, Renault, and chairman of Japan’s Mitsubishi Motors Corp, the third partner in the alliance.

Ousting Ghosn will pose questions about an alliance that he personally shaped and had pledged to consolidate with a deeper tie-up, before eventually stepping back from its operational leadership. It also brings into focus the future of Nissan – the biggest partner in the alliance – at a time it is seeing falling profits due to weak US sales and is facing heightened competition from rivals who are investing heavily in new growth areas like internet connected cars and self-driving vehicles.

The 5 girls who I spent every Tuesday night of college with okay… except junior year when everyone but me and Rachel left at some point. Apparently you walk across a stage, get a piece of paper in exchange for 4 years of hard work, and your life just falls apart.

It started with a lamp for my office. Which means dinner with friends, books to read, Netflix shows to binge watch, and my new favorite hobby of up-cycling.

This combines painting with thrifting, which are two dear loves of mine. Many more crafty, Pinterest inspired projects in my future?

It moved the Magpies closer to the drop zone on a day when Swansea, West Ham and Huddersfield all won to tighten things up at the bottom once again. United were forced to hang on for long periods in the first half and there was a measure of relief that they made it through to half-time. They had chances but once again, it was mistakes that led to their downfall.

Ayoze Perez, a late substitute, put through his own goal under pressure from Shinji Okazaki to leave United facing another dispiring reverse. So who did the business and who let the team down?

There is much debate as to who suffers more after a break up – the dumper or the dumpee? After much consideration, study and research on the subject, it could just be that the pain involved is not what affects the ultimate outcome. And I believe it depends on the reason for the dump. As a result, I believe the woman, the dumper here, would be very open to a return from the man to reignite the relationship unless he cheated.

So if the dumpee, the man, returns to make amends, I believe he will have an increased success rate of actually repairing things and making amends, as long as his intentions are genuine, he apologizes, becomes accountable for his actions and shows the woman the respect she deserves. In this case, I believe the dumper is hurting more than the dumpee.

Months later, her seven-year marriage to actor Ryan Phillippe began to fall apart, and in November of that year, the couple filed for divorce. In a 60 Minutes interview with Charlie Rose, which aired Sunday, Witherspoon explained how the unraveling of her marriage was responsible for what she saw as her subsequent career slump. You can’t really be very creative when you feel like your brain is scrambled eggs. The stars cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their divorce, although the split occurred in the wake of rumors that Phillippe had an affair with actress Abbie Cornish.
