Structural variations in derivatives of the bacteriochlorophylls of Chlorobiaceae: impact of stratigraphic resolution on depth profiles as revealed by methanolysis

first_imgBacteriochlorophylls c and d, recovered from two sedimentary sequences, were converted to bacteriophaeophorbide methyl esters by methanolysis and analysed by atmospheric pressure chemical ionisation liquid chromatography-multi-stage mass spectrometry (APCI LC-MSn). The distributions in both settings, a moderately consolidated sediment from Kirisjes Pond, Antarctica, and in a finely laminated microbial mat from Les Salines de la Trinitat, Spain, show significant variations within a narrow depth interval. The overall bacteriophaeophorbide c to d ratios in the two sediments are different, as are the ratios of particular C-3(1) diastereoisomers, indicating distinct differences between the bacterial communities that contributed to each sediment. Furthermore, a shift towards more extensive alkylation in homologues within each sediment is consistent either with changing environmental conditions in the depositional environments, or development-related changes in the structure of the bacterial community, leading to increased competition for light or nutrients.last_img read more

Le Cordon Bleu patisserie courses attract more men

first_imgRenowned culinary school Le Cordon Bleu London has noted a dramatic rise in the number of men applying for patisserie courses year on year. In the past six months, in particular, the number of men showing interest in the diploma in patisserie has increased. Demand has been so high that the culinary arts institute has introduced a number of new courses to satiate applicants.Programmes such as Cake Decorating, Breakfast Baking and Mastering Macaroons are no on offer for people to attend Le Cordon Bleu for one-day workshops. They are said to reach capacity within a fortnight of being announced.Alan Swinson, culinary arts director at the school, believes there are several reason for the increase. He said: “Our reputation means the number of students applying for the Patisserie Diploma has always been high, but the trend has typically seen more females opting for the course. In the past 12 to 24 months, there has been a noticeable shift in the trend – and it is one which shows no sign of slowing down.”André Cointreau, president and chief executive of Le Cordon Bleu, said: “The reputation of Le Cordon Bleu has endured as a result of our ceaseless dedication to ensuring our programmes meet the ever-changing needs of the industry.”In an increasingly competitive marketplace, both men and women want to be trained to the very highest standards. We are delighted to see an increase in men applying for our Patisserie Diplomas both here in the UK and internationally – it is testament to the positive change in attitudes.”last_img read more

Enjoy These Video Highlights From Joe Russo’s Almost Dead’s 1st Weekend At The Brooklyn Bowl

first_imgThere were several highlights from last weekend’s three-night Joe Russo’s Almost Dead run at the Brooklyn Bowl. Though, perhaps the best part is that it all starts again tonight with three more shows – although this time around, Dead & Company’s Oteil Burbridge will be filling in for Dave Dreiwitz for all three nights. Last weekend’s residency brought a lot of magic: including their 100th show, the debut of an original song, and several teases and debuts.With the excitement building for tonight’s arrival, we decided to take a step back and relive the glory from last weekend’s musical adventures.Jack Straw 3/9/17, via LazyLightning55aKeeping It Simple, 3/9/17, via TimeZonerTVCassidy, 3/11/17, via LazyLightning55aGood Lovin’, 3/11/17, via LazyLightning55a Throwin’ Stones, 3/11/17, via LazyLightning55aCumberland Blues, 3/11/17, via LazyLightning55aAlthea, 3/11/17, via Brooklyn BowlJoe Russo’s Almost Dead will be heading to Fool’s Paradise on March 31st and April 1st in St. Augustine, FL, with special guest keyboardist Jeff Chimenti.
