IAGC: Plankton Study Speculative and Needs Better Data
Houston, TX, US, June 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The International Association of Geophysical Contractors (IAGC) released the following statement regarding the publishing of research on the interaction of seismic surveys and zooplankton in Nature: Ecology and Evolution. The IAGC President, Nikki Martin issued the following statement:
"While we found the study interesting, we are also troubled by the small sample sizes, the large day-to-day variability in both the baseline and experimental data, and the large number of speculative conclusions that appear inconsistent with the data collected over a two-day period. Both statistically and methodologically, this project falls short of what would be needed to provide a convincing case for adverse effects from geophysical survey operations.
"Although the initial report is peer-reviewed, it has not been widely accepted by the expert scientific community. We look forward to discussing this topic further with the authors and other experts in this field to determine the best path forward toward more scientifically solid and consistent results that can be replicated and verified by other independent researchers, in the best traditions of science.
"While we remain open to all emerging new scientific information, after more than 50 years of continuous seismic surveying around the world, including extensive operations in the Gulf of Mexico, and over a decade of intense scrutiny by hundreds of scientists, there is still no scientific evidence that sound from seismic operations has negative population impacts on marine life."

At the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, Chairman of Pilatus Bank draws a stark comparison of the role technology has played in banking vs telecommunication21.9.2017 08:58 | Pressmeddelande
LONDON, Sept. 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ali Sadr, Chairman of Pilatus Bank, believes that banks have failed to capture the true essence of technology for improving quality of service, as well as lacking the vision necessary to capture customers' imaginations. Meanwhile, other industries have been revolutionized and continue to thrive by the same technology. America has in the last 10 years been forced to close 10,000 branches. Since 2008, Europe has lost close to 48,000 branches, which is more than 20% of its branch network. There is little doubt that branch banking is on the decline, and online banking is failing to provide a quality service. As we mark the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, Ali Sadr, Chairman of Pilatus Bank, gives a sobering count of the current state of affairs in the use of technology among well established banks, and elaborates on a vision that has the potential to become the largest revolution the banking industry is yet to experience. Chairman Al
