He terraced the slopes and planted vineyards; using native limestone, he constructed the Monte Bello Winery, producing the first vintage under that name in 1892. This unique cellar, built into the mountainside on three levels, is Ridge’s production facility.Lytton Springs, in Sonoma County, became part of the Ridge estate in 1991. A quarter century’s experience with this vineyard had convinced them that it was an exceptional piece of ground. Forty consecutive vintages of Geyserville attest to yet another stunning combination of location and varietals. Though born in the early sixties to the post-Prohibition world of modern California winemaking, Ridge relies on nature and tradition rather than technology. Their pre-industrial approach is straightforward: find intense, flavorful grapes; intrude upon the process only when necessary; draw the fruit’s distinctive character and richness into the wine.Visit The Langham Hotel for a special evening with a select winery each month inside the intimate Red Wine Room at The Royce Wood-Fired Steakhouse. Sit back and relax as you are led through a 3-course dinner paired with wines carefully hand-selected to complement each dish. The last Monthly Wine Dinner Series at The Royce Wood-Fired Steakhouse is this Thursday, September 22 and celebrates Ridge Vineyards.Dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. and is priced at $95 per person.

HR benchmarking is more than cost-cutting

first_imgHR benchmarking is more than cost-cuttingOn 17 Jul 2001 in Personnel Today HR teams that join benchmarking networks seem to be making a desperate, yetfutile, attempt to justify their existence. It is highly ironic, therefore,that the growth in the use of HR benchmarking seems to bear a directcorrelation with the huge losses in HR jobs through outsourcing. The mainreason for this is that benchmarking is using the wrong type of measures forthe wrong reasons. HR databases suffer from two fundamental flaws. Most of the data comprisesmeaningless activity measures (for example, number of training days per employee),which is usually of no great interest to anyone outside the HR department. Yet,when more business-focused measures are used (profitability per employee, forinstance), the database can show no causal connection to HR activity. One particular metric that I regard as the worst possible piece of data thatan HR department can collect is the “full-time equivalents per HRdepartment FTE” ratio. What is better, 100:1 or 50:1? Surely it dependsentirely on what the “1” HR person is actually doing. Would anyoneever try to gauge how effective a football team may or may not be on the basisof the players-to-manager ratio? No doubt accountants are interested in this metric because they regard HRcosts as an overhead, and overheads are usually a one-way street. So even ifyour FTE/HR ratio is the best on the database (although I’m still not surewhether “best” means lowest or highest), there will always bepressure to reduce HR’s cost. HR teams that have signed up to these databases seem to have missed the wholepoint about benchmarking. It is meant to be a continuous improvement technique,not just a cost-reduction tool. Improvements can and will come from increasingresources as well as reducing them. The only possible good I can see coming from such databases is that ifinefficient and ineffective personnel administrators want to act like turkeysvoting for Christmas, then they get what they deserve. This should free upprecious resources for those HR people involved in more important work. I would go further and argue that an organisation can never have too many HRpeople if they all actually add lots of value – an argument that any boarddirector can understand and accept as long as they see some convincingevidence. I would not say the same for accountants, however. The sooner we publishtheir FTE ratio, the better. Let’s see how they like it.

The relationship between sticky spots and radar reflectivity beneath an active West Antarctic ice stream

first_imgIsolated areas of high basal drag, or ‘sticky spots’, are important and poorly understoodfeatures in the force balance and dynamics of West Antarctic ice streams. Characterizing sticky spotsformed by thin or drying subglacial till using ice-penetrating radar is theoretically possible, as high radarbed-returned power (BRP) is commonly related to an abundance of free water at the ice/bed interface,provided losses from englacial attenuation can be estimated. In this study we use airborne radar datacollected over Evans Ice Stream to extract BRP profiles and test the sensitivity of BRP to the adoptedenglacial attenuation correction. We analyse 11 �20km profiles in four fast-flow areas where stickyspots have been inferred to exist on the basis of model and surface data inversions. In the majority ofprofiles we note that the increase in basal drag is accompanied by a decrease in BRP and suggest thatthis is evidence both for the presence of a sticky spot in those locations and that local variations insubglacial hydrology are responsible for their existence. A comparison is made between empirical andnumerical modelling approaches for deriving englacial attenuation, and our findings generally supportprevious studies that advocate a modelling approach.last_img read more

Marine climate and hydrography of the Coralline Crag (early Pliocene, UK): isotopic evidence from 16 benthic invertebrate taxa

first_imgThe taxonomic composition of the biota of the Coralline Crag Formation (early Pliocene, eastern England) provides conflicting evidence of seawater temperature during deposition, some taxa indicating cool temperate conditions by analogy with modern representatives or relatives, others warm temperate to subtropical/tropical conditions. Previous isotopic (δ18O) evidence of seasonal seafloor temperatures from serial ontogenetic sampling of bivalve mollusk shells indicated cool temperate winter (<10 °C) and/or summer (<20 °C) conditions but was limited to nine profiles from two species, one ranging into and one occurring exclusively in cool temperate settings at present. We supplement these results with six further profiles from the species concerned and supply seven more from three other taxa (two supposedly indicative of warm waters) to provide an expanded and more balanced database. We also supply isotopic temperature estimates from 81 spot and whole-shell samples from these five taxa and 11 others, encompassing ‘warm’, ‘cool’ and ‘eurythermal’ forms by analogy with modern representatives or relatives. Preservation tests show no shell alteration. Subject to reasonable assumptions about water δ18O, the shell δ18O data either strongly indicate or are at least consistent with cool temperate seafloor conditions. The subtropical/tropical conditions suggested by the presence of the bryozoan Metrarabdotos did not exist. Microgrowth-increment and δ13C evidence indicate summer water-column stratification during deposition of the Ramsholt Member, unlike in the adjacent southern North Sea at present (well mixed due to shallow depth and strong tidal currents). Summer maximum surface temperature was probably about 5 °C above seafloor temperature and thus often slightly higher than now (17–19 °C rather than 16–17 °C), but only sometimes in the warm temperate range. Winter minimum surface temperature was below 10 °C and possibly the same as at present (6–7 °C). An expanded surface temperature range compared to now may reflect withdrawal of oceanic heat supply in conjunction with higher global temperature.last_img read more
