May 17, 2020 NASCAR chose Darlington, the oldest speedway on the Cup circuit, as the safest place to restart the season after eight events were postponed. Sunday marks the first of 20 races across seven Southern states between now and June 21.VIRUS OUTBREAK-SPORTSCal. State teams could play football as scheduledUNDATED (AP) — The California State University system’s plan for a mostly virtual fall semester due to the coronavirus pandemic doesn’t necessarily close the door on football at its three schools that play in the far-flung Mountain West Conference.San Diego State athletic director John David Wicker says the school is looking at having football players return to campus no earlier than July 7 and is making plans to play the season as scheduled. SDSU is proceeding because it envisions a fall schedule that includes a hybrid model of classes, in which some students will be on campus for in-person instruction such as labs while other classes will be held online. Associated Press Update on the latest sports The Mountain West also includes two other Cal. State schools: Fresno State and San Jose State. Fresno State AD Terry Tumey said it’s too early to determine when athletes could return to campus, adding that the safety of the community, the players and support staff is paramount. San Jose State said in a statement that it continues to work on timelines.NCAA President Mark Emmert said recently that campuses must be open “in one fashion or another” in order to have sports this fall.In other developments related to the coronavirus pandemic:— English Premier League clubs will try on Monday to agree on protocols to allow a return to training during the coronavirus pandemic. Teams already have started checking players and coaches for COVID-19, with a total of 1,600 weekly tests anticipated across the 20 clubs in England’s top division. Monday’s meeting comes two days after the German league resumed its schedule.— All Spanish league clubs can begin group training sessions this week despite stricter lockdown restrictions remaining in place in parts of Spain because of the coronavirus pandemic. Cities like Madrid and Barcelona have not been allowed to loosen confinement measures like most of the country, but teams such as Real Madrid and Barcelona have been given the go-ahead to move into the second phase of training. The league has told clubs that on Monday all players can start small group sessions regardless of the lockdown phase in their regions. Players had only been allowed to train individually across Spain until now.center_img The Real Heroes 400 is being run without fans and with masks and social-distancing mandates all around.It’s the first live NASCAR race in 10 weeks after the schedule was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.

O’Dowd set to take over at center against Arizona

first_imgThere’s just one regular season game left on the schedule for the Trojans, but coach Pete Carroll is still switching around his lineup.This week’s order of business: the offensive line.Clearing the way · Senior offensive lineman Kristofer O’Dowd (61) will replace Jeff Byers (53) at center against Arizona. Byers will move over to the left guard spot when the preseason All-American returns to action. – Brandon Hui | Daily TrojanCarroll announced after practice Tuesday that junior Kristofer O’Dowd will be moving back into the starting lineup, replacing Jeff Byers at center.Byers, a sixth-year senior, will move over to left guard in his final game at the Coliseum.“We haven’t had a chance to get Kris playing much,” Carroll said. “He’s been playing really well in practice the last couple of weeks and we need to get him in a game. We’ll see how that works with that combination.”Senior Charles Brown and sophomore Tyron Smith will continue to anchor the line at the tackle spots. Filling out the five-man line, redshirt junior Butch Lewis will slide over from left to right guard, pushing senior Alex Parsons out of the starting lineup.“Butch has played really well wherever we put him,” Carroll said. “And we know Jeff is fine to play left guard for us.”O’Dowd was a first-team All-Pac-10 selection last season and a preseason All-American this season. Earlier this year, he pulled himself out of the running for the center spot, saying his play was subpar.Now, he’s ready to get back into the mix.“It’s really a chance to get Kris back into the game and this is, we think, the best way to move it around,” Carroll said.uHand-in-hand with the end of the season comes the end of home careers for a number of Trojan seniors.Six USC players will likely be making their final career starts at home — including Byers and sixth-year senior safety Josh Pinkard.“People like Jeff and Josh, those guys have been here for so long and they’ve done so much for us,” said redshirt junior receiver Damian Williams. “We’ll definitely miss them. This game’s more about going out and playing for those guys — the guys who have put in the most work and busted their butt for years.”Williams could be suiting up at the Coliseum for the final time as well. Freshman quarterback Matt Barkley said that the significance of this game is clear to the non-seniors on the team.“Especially with the seniors and this being their last game and us younger players realizing that,” Barkley said. “We’re trying to make it the best experience for them.”uOn the injury front, Williams is still hurting.The receiver played against UCLA and pulled down a team-leading five catches for 82 yards, but he said Tuesday that his injured right ankle hasn’t completely healed.He practiced on Competition Tuesday, but afterwards, he estimated he was running at about 85 percent.Junior running back Joe McKnight sat out practice to rest the bruised thigh he suffered against UCLA.McKnight said he expects to suit up this Saturday against Arizona; Carroll agreed.“I think he’s going to be okay for the weekend,” Carroll said. “But he might not get much work in this week.”McKnight didn’t play in the fourth quarter against the Bruins after suffering the injury. Redshirt junior running back Allen Bradford took his place.Bradford said Tuesday that he will be ready for whatever situation occurs against the Wildcats.“You never know — he might go down in the game, he might not,” Bradford said. “So I’m just going to keep working and get what I get on Saturday.”Bradford scored two touchdowns and ran for 62 yards last Saturday. Carroll also mentioned redshirt junior C.J. Gable as a possible replacement for McKnight in certain packages.“He certainly does everything out of the backfield that Joe does,” Carroll said. “And all of the routes and all of the schemes and screens and all of the things that he’s done over the years — C.J. can do all of that.”Gable, who started his first game as a true freshman, has carried the ball only 21 times this season for 93 yards. He ran just one time for two yards against UCLA.uThe focus for USC has turned to Arizona’s offense, which has relied on two different quarterbacks this season.Wildcats head coach Mike Stoops started the season with sophomore Matt Scott as his starting signal-caller, but pulled him after three quarters against Iowa.Nick Foles took over and has put up an impressive 67.4 percent completion percentage in eight starts.“He’s done a good job,” Carroll said. “He looks really confident and in control of the offense. He’s had an excellent year as a first-year starter.”Arizona still utilizes Scott in running situations. He’s rushed for 305 yards on 40 carries this season, including a 10-carry, 91-yard performance against Washington State.At 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds, Scott brings more of a scrambling mentality to the quarterback spot.“He’s much more anxious to run the football and do the quarterback running things that we’ve seen so common in the last couple of years,” Carroll said. “So they present a lot of problems for us.”last_img read more

Tiktaalik: Evolution’s Newest Link in the Chain

first_imgResearchers have recently discovered a fossil on Ellesmere Island, located in the Canadian Arctic.  The creature is characteristic of tetrapods, four-legged organisms, and possesses a flattened body, fins, scales, ribs, and a neck.  James Owen (National Geographic News1) considers the species, Tiktaalik roseae, to be the connection between aquatic and land animals and prehistoric predecessor of the human population:Researchers say the fish shows how fins on freshwater species first began transforming into limbs some 380 million years ago.  The change was a huge evolutionary step that opened the way for vertebrates—animals with backbones—to emerge from the water.  “This animal represents the transition from water to land—the part of history that includes ourselves,” said paleontologist Neil Shubin of the University of Chicago.  Tiktaalik could become an icon of evolution in action, write paleontologists Per Ahlberg of Sweden’s Uppsala University and Jennifer A. Clack of the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom in an accompanying commentary.  The paleontologists say the new fish form goes a long way toward filling the evolutionary gap between fish and the earliest amphibians.  “Our remote ancestors were large, flattish, predatory fishes,” they write.  “Strong limblike pectoral fins enabled them to haul themselves out of the water.”  Evolutionary scientists agree that all four-limbed land vertebrates, including dinosaurs and mammals, are descended from lobe-fins, a group of primitive fishes with fins suggesting limbs.   (Emphasis added in all quotes.)1James Owen, “Fossil Fish With ‘Limbs’ Is Missing Link, Study Says,” National Geographic News. 04/05/2006.Shubin et al., “The pectoral fin of Tiktaalik roseae and the origin of the tetrapod limb,” Nature 440, 764-771 (6 April 2006) | doi:10.1038/nature04637.John Roach, “Fins to Limbs: New Fossil Gives Evolution Insight,” National Geographic News, 04/01/2004.“Newly Found Species Fills Evolutionary Gap Between Fish And Land Animals,” Science Daily, 04/06/2006.Tiktaalik roseae is an important discovery for scientists and media alike.  However, evidence for a transition from water to land does not authenticate the so-called link between humans and their aquatic associates.  “The previously unknown creature is the closest known fish ancestor of land vertebrates,” said Shubin.  If researchers are so confident with Tiktaalik’s ability to hoist itself onto land and evolve into a land-dwelling organism, why have we discovered so few fossils that prove the existence of missing links and their transitions from water to land?  Ted Daeschler (Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia) said, “The transition wasn’t all or nothing.  It’s not that some animals were thrown on land.  There were certainly other functions intermediate.”  What exactly were those functions?  Also, how were the functions intermediate determined based upon evidence of fossils that have not been discovered?  How can researchers allude to the existence of numerous transitional species with a lack of data necessary to substantiate their conclusions?  Perhaps, we should answer these questions before we hoist ourselves onto the idea of human-fish relations.– Courtney N.(Visited 15 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Can Humans Scientifically Analyze One Another?

first_imgImagine an alien landing on Earth and trying to figure out two groups of people.  One group wields spears and arrows and decides that those who interfere with their traditions are enemies to be killed.  Another lives in penthouses and universities and explains the behavior of the other group as evolved tendencies from their animal past.  Would the alien necessarily agree that the latter group was more honorable?  The following two stories may enlighten the question.    Anthropologist Meredith Small wrote in Live Science about hunter-gatherer tribes in New Guinea and South America.  She seemed to echo the evolutionary view of researchers who denied that the warrior culture granted reproductive success: “Waorani warriors did worse in terms of reproductive success and their killing was for naught, in evolutionary terms,” they found.  Small noted that revenge seems to work and fail: “In one group, the Yanomamo, the killings resulted in times of peace and love and more babies, and in the other, the Waorani, endless revenge was leading to the end.  That gave her a morality lesson to end on.  Since evolution has produced tribal cultures that are successful within their own realms, who are white people to judge?  “Maybe people should be left on their own to live or die, to kill or be killed, left to live under their own rules and moral structures, regardless of how we judge them.”    Sometimes evolutionizing one’s fellow sentient earthlings can backfire.  Michael Balter reported in Science that popular evolutionary science author Jared Diamond is finding that out.1  Diamond recorded conversations with New Guinea tribespeople and wrote a piece for New Yorker magazine that explained their vengeance culture in evolutionary terms, “to draw an overall lesson about the human need for vengeance.”  Apparently, his subjects took offense at that characterization.  Some of them are not so primitive as he portrayed them; some have good-paying jobs and internet access.  Diamond found himself slapped with a lawsuit by a couple of these New Guinea tribesmen (see Balter’s Blog for a summary).  They are asking $10 million in damages.  In addition, Diamond has been investigated by Rhonda Roland Shearer, an artist and the widow of evolutionary biologist Stephen Jay Gould, whose website StinkyJournalism.org criticizes Diamond for bad anthropology and bad journalism.1.  Michael Balter, “Science and the Media: ‘Vengeance’ Bites Back at Jared Diamond,” Science, 15 May 2009: Vol. 324. no. 5929, pp. 872-874, DOI: 10.1126/science.324_872.It’s not “Coming of Age in Samoa” anymore.  Anthropologists can no longer evolutionize their fellow human beings with impunity.  The internet has changed things.  Evolutionists are now accountable to the people they label as primitive, less-evolved members of the human race.    In an evolutionary context, like Small writes, who is to say one culture is better than another?  Why not live and let die?  If she really believes that, she has no grounds to fight terrorism.  Notice that it’s Christian missionaries who bring medicine, healing, and peace to these people.  They believe that we are all of one blood, corrupted by sin, and in need of a Savior.  Choose which analysis you think produces good fruit.    It would be a shame if Jared Diamond loses his freedom to write candidly.  He has provided three of the best examples of evolutionary propaganda in our Baloney Detector.  Search on his name there and enjoy.(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

New facility for aircraft engines

first_img29 November 2004Public Enterprises Minister Alec Erwin opened Turbomeca Africa’s new manufacturing and maintenance facility adjacent to Johannesburg International Airoport on Friday.The new facility will manufacture gearboxes and civil and military helicopter engines.Turbomeca Africa is a joint venture formed two years ago by South African arms manufacturer Denel and French group Turbomeca, a subsidiary of Snecma.The company manufacturers engines for both domestic firms and international companies such as Rolls-Royce and General Electric, and gives support to repairs and overhauls of civil and military helicopter engines in sub-Saharan Africa.Denel owns 49% of Turbomeca Africa, while the French group owns the remaining 51%.Turbomeca Group chairman Emeric d’Arcimoles said it was a vote of confidence that Turbomeca France was transferring its workload to Turbomeca Africa.He said that engines from the French and British ministries of defence would be overhauled in South Africa from 2005, and that engines for Swedish and Malaysian military aircraft would also be exported by Turbomeca Africa.“We are in the process of re-employing additional competency at the right place to support the growing 2005 demand from Snecma Group, international markets for manufacturing, repair and overhaul, and from the South African Air Force”, d’Arcimoles said.Erwin said the establishment of the new facility was in line with the government’s plan to expand South Africa’s aerospace capabilities and gain entry into the global environment.The venture was also part of the government’s initiative to restructure state-owned enterprises and strengthen their global competitiveness by allying them with foreign partners.“Its an important area for us … to begin to invest in new technology so that we develop our capacity to export”, Erwin said. “We are confident that once we form partnerships with foreign companies, we will attract more foreign partners.”Denel CEO Victor Moche said the new facility would be geared to become a “centre of excellence for engine manufacturing … We want to achieve a standard and be at a stage where the world knows that certain engines are made only in South Africa”.According to Business Day, Denel was recently awarded a US$2-million contract by European military aircraft manufacturer BAE Systems to supply aircraft components for the production of Hawk jets for India’s airforce.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast – August 7th, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest A front is moving over the state today and tomorrow, and will spread good rain to most of us. and will bring more rain to the region. Rain and thunderstorm action nosed into NW Ohio late yesterday afternoon and evening, but we really saw rains ramp up overnight last night. We expect more through the day today and tomorrow, and we cant rule out thunderstorms. We will keep general rain totals at half to 1.5” over 90% of the state but will grant that some areas have a decent chance to exceed that. Today’s action takes on more of a scattered shower characteristic through the day, but there is a threat of thunderstorm action again this afternoon and evening. The progression of this storm back the past few days has been one of thunderstorms both ahead of and behind the front, so we expect that to continue here. Scattered showers and thunderstorms remain over Ohio through tomorrow as well , before falling apart tomorrow evening.  We are dry for Thursday and Friday morning as sunshine takes control. However, clouds are bay by late morning on Friday. We have a front that will slowly sag into northern Ohio Friday midday, coming out of southern Ontario and SE Michigan. The moisture stays mostly north of I-70 through Friday, but will be statewide in Ohio for Saturday. Moisture still does not look overly impressive with the front, and we are going to keep our thinking at a few hundredths to a few tenths. Coverage will be around 50% of the state.  Another wave arrives for Sunday, particularly in the afternoon, and continues through Monday. This system does look stronger this morning and has the potential for half to 1 inch of rain now in our forecast. This will boost our 10 day totals to well over 2 inches in many places. Coverage still looks good at 80% of the state or better. We move back to dry weather to finish the 10-day period next Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday, although some models are trying to bring in some scattered showers for late Wednesday. The map at right is a total of rain potential through the entire 10-day period The extended period is still rather unsettled. We continue to see models wide apart on a solution. WE are keeping a front moving across the state for next Friday, the 17th. This will trigger some .25”-1” rains over about 70% of the state. But, we are keeping our forecast drier behind that system, all the way into the 20th. The model that is the wettest, also is keeping the biggest rains south of I-70, and to do that we would be parking a high right on top of the great lakes. That seems a bit suspect at this point, given the large upper level ridge that will be building through the next 10 days in the plains. So, we are telling mother nature this morning to prove otherwise, and we are staying with a dry trend for a large part of the extended period.  Temperatures will be near normal for the balance of the 10-day period and may start to drift higher during the last part of our 11-16 day forecast window.last_img read more

Google Toolbar Explains Toolbar as Identity Tool, Not “Google +1”

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Last week, a new toolbar began appearing on Google for user and some took it as evidence of the ever-elusive “Google +1” or “Google Me” social network. Today, Google explained the appearance of this part of the bar as a simple method for users to keep track of what identity they’re using as they browse online and use Google services.In a blog post entitled “The freedom to be who you want to be…” the company explains that the toolbar help ensure users “know exactly what mode they’re in when using Google’s services.”According to Alma Whitten, director of privacy at Google, there are three basic forms of identity a user can assume when using Google’s services and they should be aware of which one they are assuming at any given time.We’ve been thinking about the different ways people choose to identify themselves (or not) when they’re using Google–in particular how identification can be helpful or even necessary for certain services, while optional or unnecessary for others. Attribution can be very important, but pseudonyms and anonymity are also an established part of many cultures — for good reason.When it comes to Google services, we support three types of use: unidentified, pseudonymous and identified. And each mode has its own particular user benefits.Whitten explains that unidentified is not fully anonymous, but rather tracked by IP. Nonetheless, Google doesn’t “link that information to an individual account when you are logged out.” Pseudonymous allows users a consistent identity, but “one that is not linked to their offline self.” Identified is just that. It’s for times when “you want to share information with people and have them know who you really are.”“Equally as important as giving users the freedom to be who they want to be is ensuring they know exactly what mode they’re in when using Google’s services,” writes Whitten. “So recently we updated the top navigation bar on many of our Google services to make this even clearer. In the upper right hand corner of these Google pages, you will see an indicator of which account, if any, you are signed into. “Could this be a step in the direction of the so-called “Google +1”? If, by that, we mean a social layer in Google, then certainly identity has something to do with a “social layer.” Beyond that, it seems like a responsible move by the Big G to make sure users realize how the actions they’re taking could be connected to their Google identity.
