Best tries of the Top 14 – Round 5

first_imgSunday Sep 13, 2009 Best tries of the Top 14 – Round 5 Round 5 of the French Top 15 produced another batch of sensational tries, with the highlight of this video being the players’ ability to offload in the tackle, and be there in support to finish off the tries.Perpignan beat Top 14 new boys Racing Metro 18-14 in a tightly contested match, with tries to Nicholas Durand, and Maxime Mermoz, as well as Henry Chavancy for Racing Metro.Castres picked up a bonus point win against Montpellier by beating them 33-18 following tries from Roman Teulet and Chris Masoe. The Masoe try came from a brilliant break by speedster Mark Andreu who sliced through the defence sensationally. The big kiwi then simply charged over the line to finish it.Bayonne pumped Bourgoin 53-6 as they ran in seven tries, with Pepito Elhorga, Jean-Baptiste Peyras, and Bejamin Fall all scoring two tries each. Peyras scored a notably excellent individual try.Brive were also on fine form as they punished Albi by 36-9. Argentinian Horacio Agulla got on the scoresheet, as did Jamie Noon and another foreigner, Antoine Claassen.Pocket Rocket Brent Russell scored for Clermont against Toulouse as they won 19-12 after taking a 13-3 lead at half time. Montauban just beat Toulon with the final kick in a match that was packed with drama. The hosts won 21-18, with a nice try from Julien Raynaud.Elsewhere, Stade Francais poor form continued as they lost 30-22 to Biarritz.Theres some great tries on show here that are, as always, all the more enjoyable with the excitable French commentary.

A modern house with wide spaces and integrated with the landscape, socially alive and full of regional references. The Bentes The house project sought these concepts to embrace a small – but expandable – family from Pará (Brazil). Located in a well-organized and almost completely constructed condominium, the residence sought to fit the local climate and context while taking advantage of the beautiful view of a nearby valley to the north.Save this picture!© Joana FrançaSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Joana FrançaThe main principle for this residence was to take advantage of the local construction norms aiming at a better use of the areas and the integration of the house in the landscape of the street. In the condominium, the front recoil of 5m cannot be walled, which creates a pleasant and safe street, with the façades of the houses well visible and socially integrated. However, during a visit to the place, one can observe the constant presence of open garages and exposed vehicles. To avoid this situation and seeking a closer approximation of the cars with the services core of the house, it was decided to bring the garage to the central portion of the lot, through an access on the right side. Thus, located next to the leisure nucleus of the house, the garage becomes an easy daily access space, but with reversible use on celebrations.Save this picture!© Joana FrançaThe choice of the southeast orientation for the rooms on the upper deck influenced the positioning of the 3.3m lateral recoil for passage of vehicles on the right side of the lot, and, at the same time, the non-use of the left side, where the house is leaning against the wall of the ground floor. This lateral passage organizes the distribution of house functions in a linear volume on the ground floor, which accompanies almost the entire 40m extension of the lot. There, the office/guest room, the bathroom adapted for the disabled, the kitchen – positioned to be the functional nucleus of the house – are integrated with the barbecue and service area, the garage and an independent annex, with the leisure bathroom, a small deposit and dependence.Save this picture!© Joana FrançaIn contrast to this line, the upper volume is arranged perpendicularly, forming a T-shaped plant. In this portion of the house, oriented from southwest (front) to northeast (back), the internal social areas of the residence – dining room, living room and home theater – were arranged on the ground floor and the suite of the couple on the upper floor.Save this picture!© Joana FrançaTo generate a volumetric distinction between the two portions of the house and increase the visual integration, the central area of the house has a double right foot from the main front access until the leisure area. The emptiness generated is at the same time an organizer, because it directs the inter-flow and circulation, and a guider, by being visible from all the rooms of the house.Save this picture!© Joana FrançaA premise of spatial fluidity was tied to the continuity between interior and exterior of the residence. For this, the external spaces subdivided into three portions, with different scales. In the front part, next to the main access, an internal patio serves as a second living room, external, but more intimate by having the house itself as limits and a green wall – a kind of living fence/ panel, composed by pots of Marajoara (typical pottery from the north of Brazil) and different vegetal species. In the back, a larger and collective leisure area is visually connected with the upper terrace – area on the main linear volume – where you can find a better view of the beautiful valley surrounding the condominium. To highlight the view, the back of the house slopes slightly, seeking an alignment with the visual and a consequent topological relation with the surroundings.Save this picture!© Joana FrançaProject gallerySee allShow lessPrequalification Results of the International Competition for the Landmark Design of…ArticlesInternational LafargeHolcim Awards for Sustainable Construction Open for EntriesIdeas Share Save this picture!© Joana França+ 25Curated by Matheus Pereira Share Architects: CoDA arquitetos Area Area of this architecture project Bentes House / CoDA arquitetos CopyHouses•Brazil Projects CopyAbout this officeCoDA arquitetosOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBrazilPublished on June 05, 2019Cite: “Bentes House / CoDA arquitetos” [Casa Bentes / CoDA arquitetos] 05 Jun 2019.

World’s first contactless giving car to raise funds for Stand Up to Cancer

first_imgMany charities are now using contactless giving via digital collecting boxes, including Oxfam (at a trial with Sainsbury’s stores), the Royal British Legion, and The Barbican Centre. JustGiving has developed a contactless giving app, and the National Funding Scheme provided contactless boxes at the recent rugby championships. Thyngs and Angal have, appropriately enough, recently added contactless giving to the traditional collecting box. Indeed, Thyngs claims that it can make almost any object a contactless giving opportunity. About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

We’re helping in the way we know best: with innovation. Our world-first contactless IONIQ Electric will be designed to make joining the rebellion against cancer as easy, convenient, and as engaging as possible.”CRUK and contactless givingThe contactless car follows on from a successful trial that Cancer Research UK carried out as part of the 2016 Stand Up To Cancer campaign, which equipped cash bucket collectors with mobile payment technology that allowed them to take contactless payments. Supporter feedback from this trial was overwhelmingly positive, with 25% of income being generated from contactless donations.Contactless giving objectsThere seems to be no limit to the type of objects that can be transformed into a contactless giving opportunity. These include: Advertisement Launched in the UK in 2012, Stand Up To Cancer is a partnership between Cancer Research UK and Channel 4.

Al fin, promesa de liberación de Oscar López

first_imgLuego de días de rumores y esperanzas fallidas, el pueblo boricua recibió con júbilo la noticia que por años había esperado: el prisionero político puertorriqueño con más años de encarcelación – 35 años – saldrá libre y sin restricciones el próximo 17 de mayo. El 17 de enero, a tres días de terminar su puesto como presidente de los EUA, Barack Obama finalmente conmutó la sentencia de Oscar López Rivera.López Rivera, quien acaba de cumplir 74 años el pasado 6 de enero, fue acusado en el 1981 de “conspiración sediciosa para derrocar al Gobierno de Estados Unidos”, cargo que rutinariamente se aplica a las y los revolucionarios boricuas que luchan por la independencia. Sobre él pesaban aún el resto de los 70 años de condena; doce de los años ya cumplidos los pasó en aislamiento, práctica cruel comúnmente aplicada a prisioneras/os políticos.Su conmutación fue parte de las 200 y pico otorgadas por Obama en las cuales también estaba la de Chelsea Manning, quien valientemente sacó a la luz información secreta para exponer los crímenes de guerra estadounidenses.Tristemente, el líder indígena Leonard Peltier, y la valiente puertorriqueña Ana Belén Montes, fueron excluidos de la lista.Tan pronto Oscar supo la noticia por su abogada Jan Susler, agradeció a su pueblo y a todas las personas que habían exigido su liberación.Su hija Clarisa López Rivera en conferencia de prensa desde San Juan hizo eco de las palabras de su padre: “Con voz entrecortada y casi sin poder contener las lágrimas entre otras expresiones agradeció: “Hoy celebramos la victoria del pueblo de Puerto Rico. Mi más profundo agradecimiento al Gobierno de Cuba, Venezuela y Nicaragua. Gracias a todos los que hicieron posible que Oscar López Rivera pueda regresar a donde pertenece, a su Puerto Rico del alma”. (claridadpuertorico.com, 18 de enero)Campaña libertadoraEsta victoria fue realmente una del pueblo boricua que elevó la campaña a nivel mundial. La lucha por la liberación fue acogida por los más diversos sectores del pueblo boricua, desde el independentista hasta el estadista, pasando por todos los movimientos ciudadanos, religiosos, de mujeres, ambientalistas, jóvenes y estudiantes, la clase artística y la deportiva, la religiosa de todas las creencias, LGBTT, y ciudadanas/os independientes.Su promesa de liberación igualmente ha sido celebrada en todos los rincones del archipiélago. En televisión y radio se escucha frecuentemente que al empezar un programa se hace alusión a la libertad de Oscar. Las y los activistas se regocijan y felicitan mutuamente; mensajes de felicitación llueven desde muchas organizaciones a través del mundo.Verdaderamente ha sido un esfuerzo tan conjunto, que ninguna persona o agrupación puede hacerse única dueña de su logro. La Red Nacional Boricua pro Derechos Humanos, con sede en Chicago donde residía Oscar, y con oficinas en varias ciudades de EUA y PR, organizó múltiples acciones donde participaron además varias figuras políticas electas. Han sido muchos los esfuerzos, desde las “Mujeres por Oscar” que cada último domingo del mes llevaban a cabo una demostración trayendo atención sobre el caso tanto en San Juan como en Nueva York; la mayor parte de clase artística puertorriqueña, incluyendo el ahora famoso Lin Manuel Miranda y René de Calle 13, Ricky Martin, Andy Montañez, Chabela Rodríguez y otros.Los esfuerzos de decenas de organizaciones de la Diáspora Boricua en los EUA que consistentemente distribuían información en festivales, desfiles puertorriqueños y organizaban veladas y protestas.Y luego la adhesión internacional. Cuba, siempre solidaria, tomó el caso de Oscar como uno suyo. Venezuela y Nicaragua alzaron sus voces en foros nacionales e internacionales. Figuras como el Papa Francisco y el ex presidente Carter exigieron a Obama su liberación.Una petición a Obama firmada por más de 100.000 personas fue entregada en Washington el pasado 11 de enero, presionando aún más al entonces presidente Obama.¿Qué significa para el pueblo boricua?Las reflexiones de Oscar desde la cárcel han sido muy importantes para el movimiento progresista en PR. Su llamado a que se boicotee la inmensa – e ilegítima – deuda que tiene al pueblo asfixiado. El llamado de unidad en la lucha por la independencia. Su solidaridad con la prisionera Ana Belén Montes, aislada e incomunicada en una cárcel de Texas. Estos son puntos muy claves en la lucha actual y que merecen una amplia discusión. De por sí, estas reflexiones son ya un legado y una gran aportación de Oscar al movimiento de resistencia boricua.Por otro lado, el hecho de que tan diversos sectores se hayan podido unir en un consenso – la liberación de Oscar – ya sea por motivos humanitarios y morales como políticos, puede ser visto y extrapolado a la urgente necesidad que prevalece en el Puerto Rico de hoy: la presencia de una criminal Junta de Control Fiscal impuesta por el imperio estadounidense frente a la absoluta falta de soberanía e independencia del pueblo boricua.Esta realidad se agudiza por la existencia de dos administraciones de derecha tanto en Puerto Rico como en Estados Unidos. El gobierno de “Ricky” Roselló – quien quiere imponer la estadidad en PR y avanza una agenda totalmente neoliberal incluyendo una Reforma Laboral que elimina todas las garantías que la clase obrera del país logró a través de años de incesantes luchas y que empobrecerá aún más al pueblo; y el de Donald Trump en EUA que promete caos no solamente en su país, sino a nivel mundial.Por lo cual este año 2017 promete ser uno de incesantes luchas tanto en PR como en EUA.Aunque hay la promesa de liberación de Oscar en mayo, hay la necesidad de estar pendientes hasta que salga de prisión. La historia está llena de “accidentes” en prisiones. Obama desgraciadamente, como buen imperialista, en vez de liberar a Oscar inmediatamente, hace esperar cuatro meses.Un artículo del periódico Claridad reporta que el licenciado Eduardo Villanueva Muñoz, Portavoz del Comité Pro Derechos Humanos de Puerto Rico, “dijo que agradecía que el Presidente haya firmado la conmutación [pero] hizo la observación de que Obama estaba sujeto a grandes presiones y que el pueblo de Puerto Rico tiene que poder entender la mentalidad imperial de que “nunca nos quieren reconocer un triunfo absoluto”.Villanueva Muñoz “dio como ejemplos que cuando la excarcelación en el 1999 se hizo bajo unas condiciones, cuando la Marina de Guerra entendió que no podía seguir en Vieques, dijeron nos vamos pero en tres años”.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Ethanol Groups Respond to API

first_img Ethanol Groups Respond to API By Gary Truitt – Aug 8, 2012 Previous articleAdditional Drought Assistance Announced by USDANext articleFunding for Drought Stricken Producers and Landowners in Indiana Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Energy Ethanol Groups Respond to API Following the American Petroleum Institute’s suggestion that the Renewable Fuel Standard isn’t working and should be fixed – ethanol groups fired back. Advanced Ethanol Coalition Executive Director Brooke Coleman says API has it backwards. Coleman says the problem is our dependence on foreign oil – which in turn costs consumers billions of dollars and comes at a great cost to the economy and the environment. Coleman adds that by driving American-made fuel into the marketplace – the RFS is part of the solution. In fact – Renewable Fuels Association Vice President for Research and Analysis Geoff Cooper says the RSF has been the most successful energy initiative ever undertaken to directly replace fossil fuels in the gas tanks of Americans.According to the AEC’s Coleman – API is concerned about the upward trajectory of the U.S. renewable fuels industry and is trying to spin this success as a failure. Speaking on the success of the RFS – Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis says first generation ethanol is exceeding its goals and next generation fuels like advanced and cellulosic are progressing. He says pulling the plug on the RFS would be the wrong move at the wrong time for the wrong reasons.Source: NAFB News Service SHARElast_img read more

Journalists arrested while covering “School of the Americas” protest

first_img News Help by sharing this information WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists RSF_en June 7, 2021 Find out more News Organisation Here is Kaelyn Forde’s account of what happened: “We were covering the demonstration and vigil outside of Fort Benning, where the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation/School of the Americas, is located. We were not protesting and we were wearing our press credentials. We had also interviewed the police captain in the morning, clearly identifying ourselves as members of the media.When the protest ended, we began filming the activists leaving the permitted protest zone and filing single-file onto the sidewalk. We were asked by the police to move from the street onto the sidewalk, which we did. My observation was that the protesters also followed the police’s instructions to exit single-file along the sidewalk. But we continued to film as some of those who were walking by were getting arrested. Then the police asked us to go to the sidewalk to film. At this point, we were standing in the parking lot of a gas station. We also complied and moved to the sidewalk.My cameraman was still filming as I was walking away, my back toward the police, when I felt a hand grabbing me from behind. That is when I was arrested. My cameraman filmed my arrest and then was arrested himself a few minutes later.When we got into a city bus the police were using to transport arrestees, we asked the police officers what the charges were against us. None of them wanted to answer us, though we repeatedly asked. Finally, one police officer said: “No charge. The ride is free,” and began laughing.We were fingerprinted, photographed, and our personal belongings were taken from us, including our cameras, tapes and equipment. We were put in a holding cell with other protesters. One of the women there needed her medication and the police ignored it, despite her multiple requests. She almost had a seizure on the floor. Another woman suffered an asthma attack. She had her hands around her neck and was on the floor, unable to breathe. Myself and another reporter asked for her inhaler to be returned to her. She didn’t receive it until at least 11 hours later.Our bail was set 10 times higher than normal bail for Muscogee County Jail; my bail was $4,100 dollars, as opposed to the typical $200 to $300 for misdemeanor charges. We were told we would be spending the night in jail. We were issued mattresses, cups, a towel and put in with the general inmate population.Then, we were told that we would be able to speak to a lawyer before the arraignment began. I showed my lawyer my press credentials, and he presented them to the judge. The three charges filed against me were: -unlawful assembly (a state charge)-demonstrating without permit (a city ordinance violation)-failure to disperse (a city ordinance violation)This was pretty incredible. During the arraignment, we were just taken in and out one by one, for only about a minute and thirty seconds at a time. I was asked to leave the room and was not permitted to hear the statement the police made against me. I could not speak or defend myself during the arraignment and I was not even allowed to talk to my lawyer since a police officers stood right between us.It took the judges three hours and a half to watch the videos which were taken of my arrest by police, bystanders and another journalist. Though the video proved I was innocent and I was clearly displaying my press credentials, I, along with all of the other journalists and activists, was found guilty of every charge. There was no distinction made between members of the press and activists. I was told the only way to leave the jail was to accept the guilty verdict and pay a $290 fine per charge for violating city ordinance. So did my cameraman, Jonathan Conway. We were also released on $1,000 bail for the state charge of “unlawful assembly,” which is still pending.We were not protesters. We repeatedly identified ourselves as members of the press, exercising our First Amendment rights. We were still arrested for protesting. Another 17 year-old-girl, who was doing an internship with a community radio station, was also arrested and found guilty of demonstrating without a permit, despite her credentials. The judge also announced that certain defendants were banned from the city of Columbus for 18 months.I thought that this would never happen in my country, and that the 1st Amendment protects us. But the only thing our lawyers could negotiate was jail time, and we were forced to accept a guilty verdict without any sort of due process whatsoever.

What Amazon’s NY Farewell Means for the Housing Market

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Share Save What Amazon’s NY Farewell Means for the Housing Market Related Articles Subscribe In a surprise move, Amazon announced Thursday morning that they are withdrawing from their plans to build their “HQ2″ headquarters in Long Island City, Queens, New York. The company stated that “for Amazon, the commitment to build a new headquarters requires positive, collaborative relationships with state and local elected officials who will be supportive over the long-term.” Speaking of the impact of this decision on the housing market in New York, Danielle Hale, Chief Economist at Realtor.com said, “Housing prices in Queens have not seen the increases that Arlington County, Virginia, has experienced since Amazon announced its decision to split its second headquarters between the two areas in November.” The median asking price in Queens is up by 8.3 percent year over year at $585,000 but relatively flat since November. This compares to $757,000 in Arlington County, which is up 13.4 percent year over year, and 18.2 percent, or $117,000, since November. “Half of all homes in Queens are selling in under 82 days. The typical home for sale in the more affordable neighboring borough of the Bronx is priced at $403,000, up 15.0 percent year over year. In contrast, the typical home for sale in pricier neighboring borough Brooklyn (Kings County) is priced at $849,000, down 2.8 percent year over year. The discrepancy in price growth is likely due to the higher housing costs and relatively more supply in the New York metro area, along with burdensome state taxes.”While polls revealed that 70 percent of New Yorkers supported their plans and investment, a number of state and local politicians were opposed to Amazon establishing a presence in Long Island City. “Some Queens residents have pushed back on the entry of Amazon, citing higher housing costs, among other concerns. Currently, the median income in Queens is $67,700. A household at this income level can reasonably afford less than 12 percent of the homes currently on the market in Queens,” Hale said. Analyzing the affordability issue in Queens and Arlington markets, she indicated that in order to afford half of the homes on the market, a buyer would have to be earning in the 85th percentile of all Queens households—reflective of the fact that 85 percent of Queens households currently cannot reasonably afford to buy a home there and helps explain the area’s lower than average homeownership rate. Realtor.com’s 2019 forecast (prior to HQ2 announcement) projected the New York metro area to grow by 3.0 percent. Based on housing data around previous Amazon expansions, the rate of price growth was expected to double, putting housing further out of reach for locals. According to a PropertyShark report released in November 2018, there was a noticeable spike in listing views traffic post the announcement of the retail giant’s move to LIC and Arlington. Views on Long Island City listings page increased by 198 percent in November 2018, almost triple the views after the announcement. On account of easy access to “Amazon Island City” and a heightened increase in homes in surrounding areas, the property prices were expected to accelerate in LIC. Long before Amazon’s descent on LIC, the neighborhood experienced a surge in interest as well as home prices, with a median home price saw an increase of 35 percent in the last five years. While there is no talk of HQ2 search at this time, Amazon will proceed as planned in Northern Virginia and Nashville and will focus on hiring and growth across its 17 corporate offices and tech hubs in the U.S. and Canada.

Chili and tall tales a good match for Harrell

first_img Email the author By Jaine Treadwell When Michael Reno Harrell tells people that he’s a storyteller, 99 percent of the time they’ll say, “Oh, you’re a librarian” or “Oh, you work with children.”Harrell, who performed at the Brundidge Historical Society’s annual Chili Country Christmas event at the We Piddle Around Theater Thursday and Friday nights, laughingly, said folks don’t know that storytelling is a profession just like a mechanic, a doctor, a long hauler or a long, winded preacher.“People don’t know what storytelling is,” Harrell said. “Storytelling is for any age but I don’t tell stories to children and adults at the same time. Not unless it’s in Utah because, when they come to storytellings out there, they bring their whole families. But children and adults have different interests so the stories I tell are different for adults and for children. Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Book Nook to reopen Latest Stories Chili and tall tales a good match for Harrell Swindall said Harrell’s stories brought back memories for her and her husband,“We’re still talking about it today,” she said. “His stories were funny and touching and he told them in such an entertaining way. My grandchildren, ages 13 and 16, were with us and they enjoyed it, too. Young people need to hear things like that.”Scott Swindall said Harrell is a master at bringing the audience into his tales.“The storytelling was far better than I had even expected,” he said. “It was super and to think that we got a ticket like that for only $20 and with food. It was great. And, Michael Reno Harrell told the stories with feeling and humor. We’re already planning to go to the Pike Piddlers Storytelling Festival in January and we just might go to the national storytelling festival. I can’t even imagine what that would be like.”On the other hand, Bennie Jinright has been to several storytelling events and she is passionate about the age-old art.“Not everybody is going to like storytelling but, for those of us who have memories that storytelling rekindles, there’s nothing to compare to it,” she said. “The stories Thursday night were great. I got so much enjoyment from listening to them and they brought back wonderful memories of my grandparents and my father-in-law, who was a great storyteller.”Jinright said thinking back on the memories is a by-product of storytelling.“I wish I could sit again and listen to those old ‘corny’ stories my family used to tell but that can’t happen,” she said. “But storytelling brings back those memories and that’s the next best thing to my loved ones being here with me.” Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Sponsored Content Print Articlecenter_img Next UpHarrell’s ‘different’ doesn’t include ghost stories.“It’s easy to sell tickets to a ghost storytelling event because people know what ghost stories are and they’ll go,” Harrell said. “They just don’t know what storytelling is.”Harrell said professional storytelling really took off when storytellers stopped telling folk tales and started beginning their stories with “what happened to me …” “People just aren’t going to listen to stories about ‘Jack and the Beanstalk.’ People like personal stories, stories they can relate to,” he said. “But, you’ve got to get them to a storytelling event first. If I walked out on the street and pulled someone into a storytelling event with master storytellers, I would give them a hundred dollars if they walked out not liking storytelling.”Harrell could keep the hundred dollars in his pocket as far as Scott and Jeannie Swindall are concerned.The Swindalls attended the Chili Country Christmas because it was something to do before Christmas and, too, they like chili. But they walked out of the We Piddle Around Theater sold on storytelling.“We really didn’t know what to expect,” Jeannie Swindall said. “We’ve been to ‘Come Home, It’s Suppertime’ and really enjoyed and it’s like storytelling in way. So we weren’t totally surprised but we were totally pleased.” By Blood Sugar Blaster Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Md: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch) You Might Like Two charged in stolen package case Two students were charged Friday with stealing packages from porches throughout Troy.

Autochthonous vs. accreted terrane development of continental margins: a revised in situ tectonic history of the Antarctic Peninsula

first_imgThe allochthonous terrane accretion model previously proposed for the geological development of the Antarctic Peninsula continental margin arc is reviewed in light of recent data and the geology is reinterpreted as having evolved as an in situ continental arc. This is based upon the following factors: (1) the presence of Early Palaeozoic basement and stratigraphic correlation of sequences between the autochthonous and previously proposed allochthonous terranes; (2) isotopic evidence for similar deep crustal structure across the different terranes; (3) ocean island basalt magmas and deep marine sedimentary rocks formed during continental margin extension within the previously proposed accretionary wedge sequence (i.e. not formed against an active oceanic arc); (4) the distribution of magnetic susceptibility measurements and aeromagnetic data locating the palaeo-subduction zone along the west of the Peninsula; (5) a lack of clear palaeomagnetic distinction between the terranes. The following alternative tectonic history is proposed: (1) amalgamation and persistence of Gondwana; (2) subsequent silicic large igneous province magmatism and extension; (3) development and history of Andean subduction until its cessation in the Cenozoic. A number of features in the Antarctic Peninsula correlate with those of other circum-Pacific margins, supporting a global evaluation of allochthonous v. autochthonous margin development to aid our understanding of crustal growth mechanisms.last_img read more
