Terry to miss cup game with injury

first_imgLONDON (AP):John Terry has been ruled out of Chelsea’s FA Cup match against Manchester City tomorrow.Terry, who also missed the midweek Champions league, loss against Paris Saint-Germain, is absent due to a hamstring injury.Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink, described his captain’s absence for the fifth-round meeting with City as disappointing, calling Terry “the leader of this club”.Hiddink suggested the central defender should be fit for next week’s Premier League game at Southampton.”We have a week I hope. Next weekend he should be available. I cannot predict it and I think we have to be a bit cautious with him as well because he likes to be there every day,” Hiddink said. “We must be careful. I think maybe next weekend but you know him, he loves to be there. He tried yesterday but no.”The 35-year-old Terry is entering the final months of his Chelsea career after disclosing that the club has not offered him a new contract for next season.On his Instagram page, captioning a photo of the Chelsea captain during his injury rehab, Terry wrote “Absolutely gutted to be missing the FA Cup game this weekend. I HATE being injured but working hard and giving everything to be back as soon as possible.”last_img read more

A Tale of Two Cosmic Cities

first_imgTwo organizations have prepared curricula presenting grand panoramas of cosmic history.  Each is divided into seven modules – but that is where any similarity ends.  One is a completely materialistic and evolutionary view composed by scientists and educators from NASA and the federal government and major academic institutions and corporations.  The other is a completely Biblical, theistic view put forward by Answers in Genesis, a creationist group.  Here they are in summary outline form:Cosmic Voyage:  A curriculum named Voyages Through Time was developed by the SETI Institute partnership with NASA Ames Research Center, the California Academy of Sciences, and San Francisco State University with major funding from the National Science Foundation (Grant IMD #9730693), NASA, Hewlett Packard Company, Foundation for Microbiology, SETI Institute, and Educate America, according to an article “Astrobiology 101” on Space.com.  The website of Voyages Through Time shows seven headings:The Curriculum:  The overview module stresses the important of key “overarching goals” to be taught students in the year-long curriculum: evolution as cumulative changes over time, the various processes underlying these changes, the differing time scales and rates of change, the connections and relationships across these realms of change, and science as a process for advancing our understanding of the natural world.Cosmic Evolution:  This module teaches that “The universe, the totality of all things that exist, is thought to have begun with an explosion of space and time and the expansion of a hot, dense mass of elementary particles and photons, that has evolved over billions of years into the stars and galaxies we observe today.”Planetary Evolution:  As the title implies, this module teaches that all planets “formed from the same spinning disk of dust and gas,” implying Earth is a cosmic accident that happened to provide an environment suitable for life.Origin of Life:  This module recognizes a lack of scientific understanding, but promises light in the future: “Current evidence from the rock and fossil record indicates that life on Earth began about 3.8 billion years ago.  Yet how life first formed, or even how the biochemical precursors of life developed, and under what conditions these events happened, are not yet understood.  The origin of life is an area of active research, with considerable debate among scientists from various disciplines.”Evolution of Life:  This fully Darwinian module exhibits peppered moths, uniformitarian dating methods, phylogenetic trees and other evolutionary icons to present standard Darwinism: the entire diversity of life on the planet emerged from a universal common ancestor through an unguided process of mutation and natural selection.Hominid Evolution:  The sixth module teaches that humans are products of the same unguided, natural process that produced the first life and all other creatures.Evolution of Technology:  The final module continues its portrayal of evolutionary history up to our present human civilization.  Students are shown the “timeline of major events throughout the history of technology in the context of the evolution of everything, beginning with the Big Bang about 15 billion years ago.”  They are assigned a poster project to show how technologies of the future may evolve.    Nothing is mentioned in the final module, apparently, about the ultimate fate of mankind or the “heat death” of the universe in which all life, and rationality, presumably will have long ceased to exist. :  A curriculum from Answers in Genesis, a private creationist organization funded primarily by private donations and no government grants, takes a very different approach to cosmic history.  The “Seven C’s” outline, first proposed by AIG president Ken Ham in one of his books (see article) also forms the “walk through history” structure of AIG’s Creation Museum that opened last year (05/26/2007).Creation:  The universe began as a purposeful act of an omnipotent, personal God.  The stars, the Earth, all life, the angels and mankind were created in the six days of creation outlined in Genesis 1.  Man and woman were created in the image of God.  They were rational and spiritual beings from the start.  The creation was good and innocent.Corruption:  The first human pair, Adam and Eve, believing a lie of Satan (who had previously led an angelic rebellion), disobeyed God and fell into sin, as described in Genesis 3.  This separated mankind from God and brought a curse upon the world.  Death came because of sin.  The first child committed the first murder.Catastrophe:  The world became filled with violence.  Only Noah believed God; he and his family were spared on the Ark (Genesis 6-9) while God judged the Earth with a world-wide Flood.  This had major consequences in geology and the subsequent environment for life after the survivors spread out over the earth.Confusion:  After the Flood, people again strayed from the Lord and sought to build their own pagan empire.  God confused their languages at the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11).  This began the origin of separate nations, languages and cultures, as people separated from one another to the far reaches of the earth.  False religions sprung up – many with distant but corrupted memories of the Flood, and of the one true eternal Creator God.Christ:  Since the Fall (Genesis 3:15), God had promised a Redeemer, the “seed of the woman” who would crush the serpent Satan’s head.  In the fullness of time (Galatians 4:4), the promise of God’s prophets was fulfilled in Jesus Christ (Luke 4:16-21).Cross:  God’s righteousness demands that sin be punished.  Christ took the punishment for man’s sin on himself at Calvary.  His sacrifice offered a full pardon for sin, and his resurrection demonstrated the power of God to raise from the dead all who have put their trust in him.Consummation:  The curse will be lifted at the end time when Christ returns in glory.  God will create a new heavens and a new earth, where the redeemed of all ages will rejoice with God forever. Augustine of Hippo was an influential Christian theologian and philosopher of the 5th century.  He was well acquainted with the pagan and secular worldviews of his age as well as the Biblical worldview.  In his classic The City of God, he contrasted the pagan and Christian views of reality by portraying them as two cities: the city of the pagans, and the city of God.    The city of the pagans consists of people who live by their sense impressions alone.  Their philosophers build systems of the world from the imagination of their own hearts.  The common people fear natural and political disasters, such as the fall of Rome that had recently occurred in Augustine’s time, and face death without hope or with false hope.    The city of God, Augustine said, consists of those who trust God’s revelation.  They live their earthly lives in hope of heaven, like Abraham, who “waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God” (Hebrews 11:8-10).  They walk by faith convinced in the trustworthiness of God’s promises.    The two cities are thriving in 2008 with zeal like that of a presidential campaign.  Both have a message, a mission, and the means to propagate their contrasting views of reality.Among the dozens of arguments that could be debated back and forth between these two opposite world views, let us consider just two: one piece of evidence, and one logical argument.  The logical argument is this: to argue anything, you need confidence in unseen realities that are true, universal, necessary and certain, such as the laws of logic, the validity of inductive and deductive reasoning, the correspondence theory of truth (that our sense impressions relate to an external reality), the correspondence of human rationality with truth, and the moral superiority of telling the truth instead of lying.  None of these things can evolve from an explosion of matter and energy in time.  Remember, they told us that this constitutes the “totality of all things that exist.”  So unless the evolutionists wish to violate their own principles by claiming that these intangibles are real, true, universal, necessary and certain (i.e., by plagiarizing from the theists), their world view has been falsified at the starting gate.    Before getting into the piece of evidence, allow one aside on a practical note.  You see that the evolutionary world view is being promulgated by the government, corporations, and leading scientific and academic institutions.  If the previous argument makes sense to you, you may wonder how it is possible that so many smart people could believe a self-refuting proposition.  If that is a problem, read this article at AllAboutScience.org.  Consider also that the pagan, evolutionary worldview is ancient.  Most leading Greek and Roman philosophers were evolutionists – even those who believed in pagan gods, because to them, the gods evolved, too, from a primordial chaos.  Having a majority of leading intellectuals promoting the secularist world view, therefore, is as old as Rome or Babel – or the antediluvian world, for that matter.  Don’t be surprised.  Truth is not a function of majority vote, popularity, or political power.In our civilization, the Darwinists usurped the scientific institutions in the 19th century (01/14/2004 and 02/25/2007 commentaries) and have systematically marginalized the members of the city of God who had dominated scientific inquiry since Augustine.  So the evolutionists who control Big Science today should be considered no different from a situation where Druids, Gnostics or Epicureans were to wrest the institutions of power and portray themselves as the “scientists” or soothsayers of their day, and use public funds to promote their religion as the cultural truth.    Realize that there is no possible way under heaven for mortals to know any of the cosmic evolutionary stories that were presented above in the secular diorama.  It amounts to a grand, sweeping creation myth for today’s secular culture.  The reigning shamans strive to maintain their power over the propaganda outlets.  That is why, as a minority of the population, they work so diligently with lawyers and special-interest groups to guarantee that the “accepted” cultural myth be inculcated, without contradiction, at the secular monasteries (public schools), where students are unwitting novitiates into the cult, and in the courts, academies, media and government institutions.  Otherwise the common-sense observation that design demands a Designer would be too obvious.    Some of their methods for achieving and maintaining dominance are: shaming the opposition (see ridicule and intimidation), linking their doctrines with “science” (see association and bandwagon), refusing to seriously consider opposing arguments (see card stacking and sidestepping), and clouding the problems of their story in generalities (see glittering generalities and equivocation).  For other techniques see the Baloney Detector.Now, on to just one piece of evidence among many that could be raised in support of the city of God.  Without controversy, scholars know that the book of Isaiah was written long before Christ.  Regardless of what one thinks of the Old Testament, one cannot deny the book of Isaiah precedes the arrival of Jesus of Nazareth by at least a century and a half (liberal view) or seven centuries (conservative view), because a complete manuscript was found in its entirety in Cave 1 at Qumran when the pre-Christian Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in 1947; portions of 21 other copies of Isaiah were subsequently found.  If you agree with this so far, now read the following excerpt from Isaiah carefully, and ask yourself, about whom is the prophet writing? (Isaiah 52:6-53:12).  Read the section now and come back.    This is just one of dozens of Old Testament passages, beginning as far back as Genesis 3, that were fulfilled literally in Jesus Christ.  Jesus himself announced his presence as a fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecy (cf. Isaiah 61 and Luke 4).  More of these Old Testament prophecies are discussed in the recent DVD The Case for Christ.  They were powerful enough pieces of evidence, in combination with many other arguments and evidences from creation and history, to convince hardened skeptic Lee Strobel that the Bible’s world view was true.  In the film, he challenged viewers to make it a project to look at the evidence fairly, and come to a point of decision.    You may not be ready to hang out with Ken Ham or other creationists, whom the media love to portray as Bible-thumping buffoons (as if media portrayals are any guide to how to think about things).  You may have many more questions about science and the Bible.  At least start considering what city you will call home.  Does anything else matter?

South Africa leads African data storing project

first_imgRay Maota Data sharing allows countries to better anticipate natural disasters such as earthquakes. (Image: National Geographic) Chinese minister of science and technology Xu Guanhua, says China will establish 40 data centres by the end of 2010. (Image: Center for Earth Observation and Digital Earth) MEDIA CONTACTS • Prof Tim O’Connor South African Environmental Observation Network +27 33 343 3491 RELATED ARTICLES • Blast-off for space weather centre • Research centre for African oceans • South African model for African maths centres • New centre to foster science careersSouth Africa is at the forefront of an endeavour to beef up the African continent’s data collecting and storing capabilities. This was announced at the annual conference of the Committee on Data for Science and Technology (Codata) in Cape Town towards the end of 2010.At the conference delegates were treated to a preview of the prototype of the World Data Centre on Biodiversity and Human Health in Africa, set to be opened in 2011 in South Africa.The importance of the centreThe centre will focus on topics such as geomagnetism (the earth’s magnetism), astronomy, and solar activity. It will allow researchers to understand how environmental trends relate to one another, such as climate change and malaria for example, by compiling data on such topics.Scientific data on Africa is currently dispersed mainly in countries off the continent, but the new centre aims to bring all this data together into a single resource that will be accessible online.Because data collection and management is still under-developed on the continent, policies to protect information have not yet been conceived and implemented.Daisy Selematsela, executive director of the Knowledge Management and Evaluation Directorate at the National Research Foundation in Pretoria, said that the lack of such policies has resulted in a fear of how the data will be used.“This is one of the things we need to look into,” she said. “There is a tendency to control access to data, perhaps because of concerns over its mis-interpretation or because data is power.”The centre will be on par with over 50 other data centres around the world, most of which are located in East Asia, Europe and the US.Data expert Wim Hugo of the South African Environmental Observation Network is confident that the centre will help researchers identify gaps in existing data, and give them historical data to compare to new findings. Hugo is an advocate of the new centre.With South Africa spearheading this initiative, there has already been collaboration between SA and Nasa in the US. The space agency sent more than 30 terabytes of free earth science satellite data to local researchers for them to use in environmental applications, and to support sustainable development.However, Unesco’s head of science policy Lidia Brito, speaking at the conference, cautioned that Africa’s challenge lies in being able to manage and interpret these increasing amounts of data.“We need to have the eyes to look beyond the data,” added Brito.The centre’s operations will initially depend on data sets currently hosted in South Africa and the US, while African organisations will be encouraged to contribute their own data as it becomes available.The Committee on Data for Science and Technology Part of the International Council for Science, Codata was established in 1966 in an effort to improve the accessibility of scientifically important data, as well as its quality, reliability and management.This resource provides scientists and engineers with access to international data activities, keeps them abreast of new international knowledge, and allows for direct cooperation.A major driving force in the establishment of Codata was the fact that the efficient management of scientific data was beyond the scope of a few dedicated individuals.Data sharing in the worldChina will provide over 80% of its data relating to research into pure science such as theoretical mathematics, physics and chemistry, making the knowledge freely available on the internet.Chinese minister of science and technology Xu Guanhua, said that to achieve this goal, China will establish 40 data centres by the end of 2010.”They will cover 300 databases relating to the environment, agriculture, human health, pure science, engineering and regional scientific and technology information,” he said.“All of them will be openly accessed through a public portal initiated by the Ministry of Science and Technology in China,” Xu added.Preventing disasters through data sharingA UN and World Bank report released in November 2010 has revealed that humanitarian disasters caused by natural forces such as earthquakes and floods could in some cases be averted through global collection and sharing of hazard data.This would help to build up an international picture of risks to help make more sophisticated predictions on a local level, it reported.“Few countries collect data on hazards. Data on where past hazards have struck, frequency, intensity, and even data that is collected is not made accessible,” said Apurva Sanghi, a senior economist at the World Bank.“A lack of basic information means donor agencies that want to lessen the impact of, say, drought can’t make optimal decisions,” he said.last_img read more

Demand more when buying a herd sire

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Bull buying season is well underway throughout the cow-calf regions across the country. If your calving season starts in January, you may have already made your herd sire selections for this year’s breeding season. If your calving season starts a bit later, you may be in the midst of making herd sire selections. If you have yet to make your bull buying decisions, there are plenty of opportunities available in the immediate future through public auction or private treaty.As an Extension professional and a seedstock producer, one of the most interesting discussions I can have with a producer is reviewing their thoughts on what they are looking for in a potential purchase for a herd sire. Obviously, there is a wide range of criteria to be considered depending on the production goals and size of the herd. In my experience, a few very consistent themes emerge with discussions on a potential herd bull purchase: calving ease, disposition, and price.Given the value of feeder cattle and the level of expenses associated with beef production today, discriminating bull buyers should demand that potential herd sire candidates be equipped with the proper qualifications to do the job. Prospective bull buyers should expect these qualifications from any operation selling bulls at private treaty or public auction. There is simply too much risk involved in beef production today to take a chance on a sire with a lack of information in the areas of genetics, health, and fertility.Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs) allow the breeder to identify the animals that excel in the traits that are important for their operation. The EPDs can be used to determine exactly where a herd sire candidate ranks within a given breed and his potential to make significant improvements in performance of future calf crops. A documented health program should be emphasized with any herd additions regardless of gender. A sound biosecurity plan for the herd can go a long way to help avoid the introduction of a costly disease into a herd.It is my opinion that the most important job qualification that any potential herd sire should possess is a successful Breeding Soundness Examination. This examination gives the purchaser an assurance that a herd sire candidate has the ability to get cows bred. Even mature bulls should have a Breeding Soundness Examination performed prior to turnout before a breeding season. Given today’s economic climate, a cow is too expensive to maintain and feeder calves are too valuable to sell to take risks with poor potential reproductive performance from a sire without a fertility check.Beef producers need to be concerned with a wide variety of production traits if they intend to be successful in this business. Weaning weights, yearling weights, milk, carcass traits, etc. should be prioritized to varying degrees depending on your marketing program. A person that sells feeder calves at weaning will be concerned about weaning weights while a marketer of freezer beef will be more concerned about carcass traits. However, regardless of your marketing program, the traits of supreme importance are fertility (percentage of females bred) and calving ease (percentage of live calves).While calving ease is extremely important, I believe there is a tendency for the typical Ohio herd owner to overemphasize calving ease across the entire herd. The average cow herd in Ohio numbers approximately 17 head with most herds retaining some number of replacement heifers to add to the herd. Herds of this size usually work with one herd sire to cover both mature cows and yearling heifers. If you choose a herd sire with the proper calving ease for the heifers, he should also possess enough quality in the traits of importance such as growth and carcass merit for the mature cows. There are bulls out there that can do many things well, but they can be hard to find and more expensive to own.This brings us to the subject of price. It should be the goal of every cow-calf producer to purchase the best possible bull that fits within a determined budget. I realize that philosophy would result in a wide range of bull prices among producers. A rule of thumb that I have often heard for many years is that the value of a typical herd bull should be equal to the value of two to three market steers or three to five feeder calves at weaning. There are exceptions to these guidelines but an above average bull that excels for traits such as calving ease, growth, carcass traits, etc. will likely demand a premium.I am not about to tell any producer what the correct amount is that they should pay for a bull. However, I would like to offer a few suggestions for producers as they search for their next herd sire.Establish the production goals for your herd and select a sire that compliments the needs of your cow herd.2. Use EPDs, actual performance data, and Selection Indexes to identify outstanding sire prospects.3. Never buy a bull without a Breeding Soundness Examination.4. Select the appropriate age and size that matches the number of cows to be bred. A time-honored rule-of-thumb is to place about the same number of cows or heifers with a young bull as his age is in months. Putting too many cows with too young of a bull is a recipe for open cows.5. A bull that can increase the number of live calves born, add growth, and increase the maternal strength of a herd through daughters retained should be viewed as a sound investment.6. A low-cost bull that may not excel in traits of importance may be purchased just to get cows bred and does little to add to the profitability of the herd. This bull is little more than a “cow settler.”last_img read more

Ind vs Eng: Bell, Swann push India to the wall at Oval

first_imgIan Bell scored a double ton propelling England to an advantageous position against India on a day which saw the whole of the second session being wiped out because of incessant rains during the fourth Test at The Oval on Saturday. Score | PhotosAt close on Day Three India were 103/5 with Rahul Dravid (57 n.o.) and MS Dhoni (5 n.o.) in the middle in reply to England’s first innings total of 591/6 dec.After Bell’s impressive double, England offie Graeme Swann lapped up three wickets, including that of Sachin Tendulkar, to push India to the wall.England started the day with an overnight score of 457/3 with Bell (181 not out) and night watchman James Anderson (3 not out) in the middle.On Friday Bell and Kevin Pietersen put on a record 350-run partnership, scoring massive tons, even as India were once again left searching for answers on the second day of the fourth Test.Saturday saw Sreesanth got rid of night watchman early. A thick edge off Anderson’s bat was easily taken by VVS Laxman in the slips cordon and he departed for 13. England score at the stage was a massive 480/4. Sreesanth then came around to get rid of next man Eoin Morgan on one with skipper MS Dhoni performing the final honours behind the stumps.Bell who was still batting at the other end, later, hit a four off Sreesanth to complete his double ton.Finally it was Suresh Raina who got the man India wanted. On the second day he had claimed Kevin Pietersen after he had scored 175 and today he sent back Bell on 235. The batsman was wanted to sweep Raina past the boundary, but the ball didn’t connect and instead trapped him leg-before. Bell’s innings was decorated with 23 fours and two sixes.advertisementEngland were 591/6 at lunch with Ravi Bopara (44 n.o.) and Matt Prior (18 n.o.) at the crease when rain washed away the second session. With a good first innings total on board, England decided to declare the innings on 501/6.Post tea, India came out to bat with Rahul Dravid partnering Virender Sehwag at the opening slot.Dravid opened in place of Gautam Gambhir, who suffered a mild concussion while fielding on Friday and had to undergo a medical examination.However, Sehwag failed to give India a good start and James Anderson trapped him leg-before on eight. New man in the middle, VVS Laxman too didn’t last long and a few deliveries later fell a victim to Stuart Broad’s pace. Laxman could only add two runs to India’s total of 13.Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar, who isn’t having a good go in the series, was the next to walk back. He played a sweep shot off England offie Graeme Swann and ended up lobbing the ball to James Anderson and India were down to 68/3. Tendulkar could only managed to score 23.Swann then sent back Suresh Rain, who was stumped by wicketkeeper Matt Prior on a duck and India lost their fourth wicket on 93.India decided to send in Ishant Sharma as the night watchman, but he became Swann’s third victim. Eventually skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni had to come in to bat alongside Rahul Dravid, who all this while was holding fort.At close on Day Three India were 103/5 with Rahul Dravid (57 n.o.) and MS Dhoni (5 n.o.) in the middle.last_img read more
