Questions related to Wales
I need to find the mean average annual rainfall and temperature for four specific locations in the UK, all in South Wales. I have explored the websites of the Met Office, The Centre for Ecology and Hydrology and Digimap for this information but have had no luck. I have found some fairly descriptive maps but nothing that allows me to elucidate the specific figures I need. Would someone be able to help me out on this one?
I have some data on the landings of crab and lobster in Wales from 2002-2019 and I also know whether they were landed into ports in North or South Wales. What statistical test(s) do I need to do to compare landings of both species between North and South? Should I conduct two separate t-tests for each species or is there a test I can do that does it all in one go? Crab and lobster are caught in the same pots so their abundances are linked.
I am currently working on my dissertation and I selected Peter Garrett's theoretical framework for Language Attitudes, I am not able to access many studies but the critical one is the one mentioned above. I will be highly obliged if someone shares the complete study with me.

I ask this question because when I worked at ADAS Pwllpeiran Research Centre in mid Wales, common rush had become invasive in the improved areas of the grazed upland organic pastures The control measure was cutting and grazing as it was held that this was more effective than either cutting or grazing alone. On my own organic holding, similar management also led to increased rush infestation in permanent pasture and so in 2017 we ceased grazing and planted 9 hectares of broadleaved trees under the Farm Woodland Improvement scheme. The site is steeply sloping and the land is wet, so mechanical weeding has not been possible. Despite the lack of weed control, trees have established and in two years a significant depth of grass biomass has developed and grasses appears to be dominating and out-competing the rush.
I need this paper : The Origin of the Structure known as Guilielmites
- Alan Wood (a1)
- DOI: https://doi.org/10.1017/S0016756800094176 Published online by Cambridge University Press: 01 May 2009
During the course of palaeontological work in the North Wales coalfield, shining discoidal bodies were noticed on the bedding planes of various shales. They were found to be identical with objects described as Guilielmites by Geinitz (4) in 1858. The literature concerning them is reviewed below, and a new theory of their origin is advanced.
Wales has managed to test 90% of people suspected of being infected with novel coronavirus in their own homes, after implementing community testing for covid-19.
Vaughan Gething, minister for health and social services in Wales, credited the NHS with making the process “as convenient as possible for people whilst also protecting our ambulance and hospital resources for those who need it most.”
More than 100 people had been tested in Wales as of 13 February, with no positive cases. Around the UK, nine cases have been confirmed. Gething said that health services in Wales were trying to “manage as many people as possible outside of hospital.”
He said, “Testing in the community is proving very effective and works well whilst we are in the detection of infection phase. We are working closely with the NHS and social care to ensure that, should the situation change and we see some spread of coronavirus in the community, our services are ready to provide a swift response.”
In Wales, members of the public who call NHS Direct Wales or 111 Wales and meet the current case definition are referred to Public Health Wales’s health protection team. If assessed as a possible case a decision is then made as to whether people are suitable for home testing on the basis of their self-reported health status and their ability to self-isolate at home.
NHS Wales has seven health boards that provide local healthcare services. Public Health Wales’s microbiology team then coordinates with the relevant health board community testing teams to arrange home testing within 12-36 hours.
Gething said that he was “grateful to the public for following our clear message that they should not attend their GP practice or present at hospital emergency departments.”
Community testing for covid-19 has also been rolled out in other areas of the UK including London, where doctors working in a number of NHS trusts came together to share best practice.1 The team explained in The BMJ how they had rolled out community testing.2
Covid-19 has so far resulted in the deaths of 2008 people worldwide, more than the combined total from the 2003 SARS outbreak (774) and MERS in 2012-19 (858 deaths).3 This is despite the novel virus being branded as less deadly because of its lower case fatality rate—2%, compared with 10% from SARS (8098 cases, 774 deaths) and 35% from MERS (2494 cases, 858 deaths)—reflecting instead the higher number of cases of covid-19 (75 240 as of 18 February).

In a speech today, Queen of England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales, Elizabeth II announced that the United Kingdom plans to withdraw formally from the European Union as of January 31, 2020. Why was this decision made? Is it timely, long overdue, or hasty and premature?
I am interested in learning how to process EEG data to use in clinical setting, I have a humble background in programming. I am a physician and I do not have much knowledge about the basic sciences of biosignals and signal processing. What would be a good resource to learn the important basics that will help me build my skills in EEG processing. Which software that allows me to import EEG data for analysis.
If you are a police officer, teacher, nurse, occupational therapist, fire fighter, social worker, doctor, accountant, administrator, youth worker, childcare worker, auditor, paramedic, HR officer, procurement officer, solicitor or have any other role in the Welsh public service your help would be very much appreciated!
I’m a research student at the University of South Wales studying a doctorate in business administration. My area of interest is the relationship between self-awareness and leader effectiveness and how this changes across different job levels across the Welsh public service.
I'm looking for anyone who is employed in any of the Welsh public service organisations to help me with my study. It would involve completing a quick questionnaire which would take a maximum of 15 minutes.
Please drop me a line and I'll send you a link to the questionnaire

Interested to know whether this might work in West Wales, where there is no granite!
When I was young hardly anyone took degrees. Only the privileged went to university. Now it has become a necessity and rite of passage. Unfortunately, in the UK, with changes to the attainment of university fees and rising costs, it is costing students far more and they are now entering adult life with huge debt. Universities continually increase their fees, or appear to. There has recently been some expressed concerns about teaching, especially in the traditional, older universities (Where I went to, and with which accusations I am in agreement . The best teacher there, stimulating and innovative, was Italian).
It seems to me that we need to re-look at first degrees, make them shorter and cheaper, with fewer holidays. Make sure there are far more ways open to students, those who want the qualification but can do without the experience, to study rather than say attending in this committed way to a single school/university. This is an extension of school life surely. Weekend study perhaps? As long as the standards are kept up, should there really be a problem?
Kingsley Amis, the British novelist, considered extending degrees to so much of the population a mistake as thereby degrees get diluted, but in the modern world it is essential for as many people as possible to obtain qualifications. Need they be degrees? Amis himself was the product of university life being extended in the UK to the Middle and Lower MIddle-Class (British obsessions of the time), now the poor can can as long as they get into debt. Degrees function after all as a way of influencing and ensuring social mobility.
In Amis' day professional work and jobs in general gave day to day training (TV, journalism), but usually there was little for young entrants to learn compared to today and competition now is fiercer. Amis taught at many of the New Universities of the times (such as Wales) but never acquired a PhD (not generally popular then) nor a BLitt, the equivalent of a Masters. How times have changed!
In many countries there is a discussion about the possibility to remunerate the service of voltage regulation and reactive power provision. The English market is a good example. But it looks complex. The offered capability curve seems rectangular so the whole reactive power capability of the generators isn't exploited entirely. is there any paper that describes clearly this market ?
Figures are available ?
There is only a little passage in WWikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orthogonal_polynomials) about the history of orthogonal polynomials, namely: "The field of orthogonal polynomials developed in the late 19th century from a study of continued fractions by P. L. Chebyshev and was pursued by A. A. Markov and T. J. Stieltjes. Some of the mathematicians who have worked on orthogonal polynomials include Gábor Szegő, Sergei Bernstein, Naum Akhiezer, Arthur Erdélyi, Yakov Geronimus, Dave Gwyn, Wolfgang Hahn, Theodore Seio Chihara, Mourad Ismail, Waleed Al-Salam, and Richard Askey." I would like to known more details about how this theory and the theory of orthogonal functions envolved along the centuries, but I did not find any reference. Any comments will be appreciated.
I am looking for this publication:

Does someone have a digital copy that they can share?
Many thanks in advance,
I'm looking for the difference between WALE and Smagorinsky sub-grid scale models in filtering the scalar transport equation.
Does anyone know something about it?
I am trying to attempt morphological identification of ticks and fleas collected in Wales on wild small rodents.
My samples have been frozen and after the morphological identification I need to extract DNA to attempt molecular identification and to check whether DNA from various pathogens is present.
My question is what is the best technique to treat the samples during morphological identification in order to identify the key morphological features and avoid DNA degradation?
I am using a dissecting microscope for big specimens and I used ethanol to fix them, but I am really struggling with tiny larvae. I thought about mounting slides, but I am not sure which medium to use.
Thank you very much,
This feature occurs in Katian / Hirnantian transition strata in West Wales - in laminated hemi-pelagite. It is about 200mm high and 100mm across. There are a number of similar features in the strata 25m or so below this one (it occurs at least 8 times with varying details of morphology. Much of the rock below this level is full of Chondrites style burrows. Looks to me like some form of infilled Dominichnial shaft between surface and deep burrows...any further thoughts?
Holocene lake sediments from S Wales, UK (ORS lithology), reveal stiff, cream/grey silt with clay intercalated with dark peats and red/brown local slopewash. Origin of these pale-coloured facies remains enigmatic - lake marl is discounted on account of low carbonate values (<3%) and lacustrine diatomite rejected - no diatoms. Pollen may suggest a shallow lacustrine environment. Also revealed at lake margins (see photo).
