    Pamplona has the Running of the Bulls, but McMurdo Sound, in the southern Ross Sea, Antarctica, has something even more spectacular: the Stampeding of the Orcas. Each summer (December through February) an icebreaker penetrates miles into the frozen sea ice to open up a resupply channel to McMurdo Station, and the killer whales have learned to take advantage of the increased foraging area. With my colleagues Wayne Perryman and Don LeRoi, I have come to gather evidence that McMurdo killer whales - which have distinct color patterning and prey preferences - may be a separate species. To make our case, we are collecting skin samples for DNA, taking photographs, and simply getting to know the orcas a little better in their natural environment.

You will also learn what percentage of your genome is affiliated with various regions in the world and if you have traces of Neanderthal ancestry! As a non-profit endeavor, a portion of the proceeds from the sales of Geno 2.0 Kits go directly to the Genographic Legacy Fund, which supports the efforts of indigenous peoples to revitalize their languages and cultures. The Geno 2.0 DNA Test Kit cost $199, which may sound like a lot at first, but it is expensive to do the extensive testing that they do.

Small coastal dolphins, endemic to southern Australia, have been recently described as a new species, Tursiops australis, with the common name the Burrunan dolphin (Charlton-Robb et al. 2011). The species consists of small genetically distinct populations with low levels of genetic diversity and are susceptible to numerous threats, including commercial and recreation fisheries, tourism, anthropogenic contaminants, shipping, gas and oil mining exploration and environmental change. The Burrunan was listed as 'threatened' under the Victorian Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act in 2013. AMMCFs flagship research project “Project Burrunan” aims to further assess the species’ distribution and range, gain better estimates of overall population size, assess the level of gene flow between the discrete populations and to assess potential migration pathways. In particular, we are surveying important regions across Marine National Parks to assess if further populations exist and/or whether these habitats are important for the Burrunan. This short video is predominantly from the latest survey in the Wilson’s Promontory region, Victoria. This is the first survey specifically conducted to research the Burrunan in the region. Finding dolphins each day has confirmed our hypothesis that this marine park is in fact an important habitat for the threatened Burrunan. The ongoing research across MPAs also gathers baseline data on the presence/absence of marine mammals, environmental variables, prey and habitat type in these regions. This crucial and transparent scientific research will be used in identifying regions of significance or 'hot spots' for marine mammals and correlations with the findings can then be made with the current MPA network.

English/Nat The European Commission controversially decided Wednesday to approve imports of genetically modified U-S corn into the European Union. The decision averted a transatlantic trade spat, but sparked an immediate threat of legal action by the environmental group Greenpeace which is concerned about the long term health effects of the corn. The long-awaited ruling clears the way for the sale, to the EU, of all types of U-S corn, totalling 500 (m) million dollars fore 1996.. After months of E-C scientific committees weighing up the advantages and disadvantages of allowing genetically engineered products onto European shop shelves, a decision was finally made Wednesday. The outcome of the Commission's findings means America has been given the go ahead to sell genetically altered corn to the European market. Though making up only point six of one per cent of this year's US crop, the genetically engineered corn had frozen all US corn shipments because it is not separated from conventional corn and difficult to distinguish from it. The Commission made its decision after seeking advice from three scientific committees on the safety of the product. SOUNDBITE: "Now, science has prevailed, so to speak. The three scientific committees have finalised their work last week and I think it's safe to say that they have given the commission's proposal a clean bill of health. Now in a situation like that where we've waited half a year and asked for advice from three scientific committees and you get a clean bill of health, there's frankly not that much for the commission to do but to accept that proposal." SUPER CAPTION: Peter Jorgensen, EC environment spokesman In preparation for the positive decision from the Commission, U-S corn exporters have for the past several weeks been shipping corn into Europe where it is being stored in silos ready to hit the markets. SOUNDBITE: "Well I imagine that since this maize, for the time being, probably is aboard some ships or are stored in some harbours that it will now be used for it's original purpose." SUPER CAPTION: Peter Jorgensen, EC environment spokesman Even though in the eyes of the E-C the decision is cut and dried, they look set to face vociferous opposition from environmental groups like Greenpeace, who are campaigning against genetically altered crops. They argue that the "marker gene" in the maize could undermine the efficiency of antibiotics used on animals and humans. Greenpeace hope to prevent the American imported corn going on sale and intend to do all they can to win their case. SOUNDBITE: "We're very very disappointed, we think that it's really now for the member states to take control of the situation - it's a really dangerous situation and the member states should now try and assert import bans to stop this corn coming into their countries." SUPER CAPTION: Louise Gale ,Greenpeace Greenpeace is not alone in worrying about the ramifications of genetically engineered maize. Many opponents are arguing that such crops are environmentally damaging and believe consumers face unknown risks over long-term use.

Abstract: Online retail focuses on optimal delivery system of shipments ordered by Customers. In this Last Mile context of a Supply Chain, automatic categorization of addresses is an important problem. A solution to this problem reduces manual effort significantly. In general, addresses help to relate to a geolocation. In the absence of geolocation information of addresses and definite structure in the addresses, classifying a given address as belonging to a particular locality is a challenging task. In the current work we devised an accurate method to classify the addresses belonging to a region as belonging to predefined subregions. The activity involves text processing, address preprocessing, clustering, classification using ensemble of classifiers, efficient ways to deal with large dataset with high dimensionality and increasing labeled dataset using semi-supervised classification. In the proposed talk, we discuss each of these stages that culminates in classification of addresses into sub-localities with a high classification accuracy. The solution is piloted in an e-commerce organization and validated. Speaker bio: Dr. T. Ravindra Babu graduated from Indian Institute of Science. Currently he works as Data Scientist at Flipkart. He had earlier worked for Infosys as Principal Researcher and ISRO as Scientist 'SG'. His areas of interests include machine learning, large data clustering and classification, genetic algorithms, image processing and spacecraft orbital dynamics. He has publications/book in these areas.

Each summer (December through February) an icebreaker penetrates miles into the frozen sea ice to open up a resupply channel to McMurdo Station, and the killer whales have learned to take advantage of the increased foraging area. With my colleagues Wayne Perryman and Don LeRoi, I have come to gather evidence that McMurdo killer whales - which have distinct color patterning and prey preferences - may be a separate species. To make our case, we are collecting skin samples for DNA, taking photographs, and simply getting to know the orcas a little better in their natural environment. We are 300 feet up in a United States Coast Guard helicopter, working our way along an extended crack in the ice that has opened off the main channel, when we spot at least thirty killer whales in a long, scattered pod. We land the helicopter a half-mile ahead, well off the ice edge, and while the rotor blades are still whop-whopping, our pilot, Lieutenant Wendy Hart, signals that it's safe to get out. We charge across the frozen sea toward the sliver of water. As we approach, a four-foot-tall black letter opener slices across our view: the dorsal fin of an adult male killer whale. We see his small cloud of breath and, a full second after, an explosive gasp from the lung-pumping mammal reaches our ears. That kindred sound, so similar to our own labored breathing, raises the hair on the back of my neck. When we get to the water we find it black and glassy calm. The helo has shut down and now the only sound on this frozen plain is the occasional squeak of our rubber boots in the powdery snow. But then, another blast of respiration announces that more killer whales have surfaced along the edge of the ice, ice so thick that we can walk right up to the rim of the whales' world. The water is clear, and their white eye-patches are easy to follow as they glide beneath the surface. Another adult male, maybe eighteen feet long, surfaces three feet away; his breath fogs my glasses before I instinctively jump back. Then a cow and her new calf charge through like a train with a small caboose. The calf - young enough that it still swims in jerky motions - lifts its head clear of the water, perhaps to get a better look at the novel creatures out on the ice. The adults seem to have more pressing business elsewhere.Yesterday we saw a pod that was in less of a hurry. One of the whales, probably an adult female, was lolling in front of us. I wanted her to know we were there, so I tossed a snowball out to her. My throw was off: it tapped her on the side, and the dry snow vaporized with a muffled "pat." In response, she hesitated, and then, to my surprise, she started pushing around a piece of ice that was a couple of feet across. At one point she flicked it with the end of her snout, and it broke in two. She disappeared for a minute and brought back a replacement chunk of ice - about the size of a volleyball. This time, when she arched her head back and snapped it forward, the ice flew out of the water and several feet ahead. For five minutes she motored around the small pond in front of us, repeatedly launching her ball of ice, before she lost interest and went on her way. I had to wonder: Did I just show a killer whale how to throw snowballs? Today there will be no such dallying. The thundering herd takes about five minutes to blow by us. In the commotion, I frantically alternate between camera and crossbow. The photographs will allow us to estimate how many whales there are here, and with the crossbow we take a harmless snippet of skin for genetic analysis - to determine if the Ross Sea killer whales are in fact a different species. The whales ignore our efforts, and within a few moments we are left with only our samples, our photos, and the silence once again. Robert L.
