Expansion Core ((BETTER))
You can help our scientists preserve these essential ice core samples by giving to the Ice Core Facility Renovation Fund. This facility is over 30 years old and is in desperate need of renovation. Please click here to see images of the current state of the facility.
Expansion includes new freezers, new workrooms, new mechanical equipment, shelving and renovation of some existing rooms. The expansion will hold 6,776 additional cores and feature a new educational space with displays and accommodations for groups touring the facility. This project has a $7 million budget.
Ohio State's Ice Core Facility is the only place in the world where ice from many of these vanishing glaciers still exists. Future generations of scientists will deploy new methods and technologies to answer questions about our future informed by this glacial archive. But this will happen only if we have facilities with conditions to properly preserve the existing collection and additional space to house unique ice cores acquired from remote mountains before they disappear from nature permanently.
The Ice Core Paleoclimatology Research Group at Ohio State drilled the world's first deep tropical ice cores in 1983 on the summit of the Quelccaya ice cap in the southern Andes of Peru. Since then, many more ice cores have been obtained from glaciers such as Kilimanjaro (Tanzania); Sajama (Bolivia); Huascarán, Coropuna and Hualcán (Peru); and five sites in the Third Pole (Tibetan Plateau) region. The research group has recently launched new research programs to study the evolution of bacteria and viruses which have been preserved in ice for millennia, allowing scientists to address how their evolution has proceeded over the last million years.
Bacterial endospores are formed by certain bacteria, such as Bacillus subtilis or the pathogenic Bacillus anthracis and Clostridioides difficile, to allow survival in environmental conditions which are lethal to vegetative bacteria. The spores possess a particular architecture and molecular inventory which endow them with a remarkable resistance against desiccation, heat and radiation. Another remarkable spore feature is their rapid return to vegetative growth during spore germination and outgrowth. The underlying processes of this latter physiological and morphological transformation involve a number of different events, some of which are mechanistically not entirely understood. One of these events is the expansion of the central spore core, which contains the DNA, RNA and most spore enzymes. To date, it has been unclear how the 1.3- to 1.6-fold expansion of the core membrane surface area that accompanies core expansion takes place, since this occurs in the absence of significant if any ATP synthesis. In the current work, we demonstrate the presence of intracellular membrane structures in spores located just below the core membrane. During spore germination these internal core membranes disappear when the core size increases, suggesting that they are integrated into the core membrane to allow core expansion. These intracellular membranes are most probably present as more or less compressed vesicles or tubules within the dormant spore core. Investigations of spores from different species suggest that these intracellular membrane structures below the core membrane are a general feature of endospore forming bacteria.
The dynamics of nanoplasma produced by an intense near-infrared pulse was investigated by time-resolved soft x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The pump-probe electron spectra indicate transient evolution of the electronic states of the constituent atoms and ions during plasma formation and disintegration. The delay dependence of photoelectron yields supports two-step fragmentation of laser-heated clusters, i.e., rapid explosion of surface ions followed by slow expansion of neutral atoms. The speed of the neutral core expansion was evaluated by comparing the experimental data with a model of uniform neutral core expansion.
With the banking industry rapidly evolving, FinWise Bank required a truly digital core solution with sophisticated banking functionality powered by open APIs, the cloud, and microservices, making it fully adaptable to new and emerging technologies. As the Bank continues to expand its digital footprint, Fusion Phoenix offers needed flexibility, increases efficiencies, and fully integrates customer data, allowing for more personalized campaigns and customer interactions.
Turn your Kalle Shirt or Shirtdress into a cozy, long-sleeve shirt! This PDF pattern expansion includes a drop sleeve with a chic folded cuff and classic tower placket and can be sewn directly to the existing Kalle pattern.
There are an extensive number of algorithms for detecting communities in networks. Modularity maximization technics are the most popular community detection methods. Despite the fact that the modularity measure is the best indicator of the partition quality, it has been proved that such technics suffer from many drawbacks: systematically merging small groups to form larger ones, the tendency to split large and dense groups and the partition of random networks where no community structures exist. In this paper we propose core expansion, a new community detection method that allows to detect communities independently from modularity. The number of communities and their members are discovered without computing the modularity score. We automatically detect the core of each possible community in the network. Then, we iteratively expand each core by adding the nodes to form the final communities. The expansion process is based on the neighborhood overlap measure. Experiments performed on real existing networks proved the performance of our algorithm: Large and dense groups are no more split and almost no communities are discovered in random networks.
Players can expect to see some drastic changes to Hearthstone when the expansions rotate around later this year. The Forged in the Barrens, United in Stormwind, and Fractured in Alterac Valley expansions will all be removed in favour of different packs.

Routt County commissioners approved planning changes for Snow Country Nursery on Tuesday, Nov. 29, creating an easement for future expansion of the Yampa River Core Trail toward Legacy Ranch south of Steamboat.
The proposed SLC Core Pipeline System capacity expansion would provide shippers access to the Guernsey crude oil market hub and access to additional crude oil grades for refiners in the Salt Lake City area. The expansion would provide incremental pipeline capacity of approximately 11,000 barrels per day (bpd), reinstating origin service from Fort Laramie, Wyoming. This expansion would bring total capacity on the SLC Core Pipeline to approximately 56,000 bpd and is expected to begin service in the first quarter of 2022.
Magic has made three types of sets since Alpha and Beta: base/core sets, expansion sets, and compilation sets. Expansion sets are the most numerous and prevalent type of expansion; they primarily consist of new cards, with few or no reprints, and either explore a new setting, or advance the plot in an existing setting. Base sets, later renamed core sets, are the successors to the original Limited Edition and are meant to provide a baseline Magic experience; they tended to consist either largely or entirely of reprints. Compilation sets also exist entirely of reprints, and tend to be made as either a special themed product, or as a way to increase supply of cards with small printings. Examples of compilation sets with randomized boosters include Chronicles and Modern Masters. There also exist compilation products with a pre-selected and fixed card pool, such as the Duel Decks and From The Vault series. Theme decks serve a similar function; however, they are always attached to a specific set or block, while compilations are free to pick and choose cards from any set.
All expansion sets, and all editions of the base set from Sixth Edition onward, are identified by an expansion symbol printed on the right side of cards, below the art and above the text box. From Exodus onward, the expansion symbols are also color-coded to denote rarity: black for common and basic land cards, silver for uncommon, and gold for rare. Beginning with the Shards of Alara set, a red-orange expansion symbol denotes a new rarity: "Mythic Rare" (the Time Spiral set featured an additional purple coloration for "timeshifted" cards). For the early expansion sets (from Arabian Nights to Alliances), the rarities of cards were often much more complicated than the breakdown into common, uncommon, and rare suggests. Cards in compilations are assigned partially arbitrary rarity by Wizards, with some cards assigned rare status and some assigned mythic rare in a given set. 041b061a72
