Half-time: Singha All-Stars 0 Chelsea 1

first_imgChelsea’s pre-season campaign is underway in Bangkok, where Romelu Lukaku scored from the penalty spot and Wallace and Andre Schurrle are making their debuts.The Blues, playing their first match since Jose Mourinho’s return as manager, went close to scoring when Michael Essien – back after a loan spell at Real Madrid – saw a header deflected onto the post.Ramires also went close, heading narrowly wide from a corner by Kevin De Bruyne, who then fired over.The lively Wallace has looked hugely impressive at right-back and created an opening for Lukaku, whose low shot was saved.But when Wallace was brought down in the box after being found by De Bruyne, Lukaku made no mistake, calmly slotting home the resulting spot-kick.First-half Chelsea team: Cech; Wallace, Kalas, Terry, Cole; Lampard, Essien; Piazon, Schurrle, De Bruyne; Lukaku.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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Saturn’s Rings Not Just Young, but “Very Young”

first_imgCassini scientists now have reduced the rings’ age by an order of magnitude, as if they formed practically “yesterday.”New estimates of the mass of Saturn’s rings, taken during its “Grand Finale” orbits, have allowed Cassini scientists to estimate the lifetime of the rings. A JPL press release now puts it at between 100 million years and 10 million years, implying (to them), “Saturn’s rings may have formed during the age of dinosaurs.” The BBC News quotes Luciano Iess, Cassini scientist from Rome, calling this like “yesterday” compared to the assumed age of Saturn (4.5 billion years). “Saturn’s Rings Are Very Young,” the headline by Jonathan Amos states.Science Daily explains why the new measurements of the rings’ mass lead to this conclusion.That estimate — about 40 percent of the mass of Saturn’s moon Mimas, which itself is 2,000 times smaller than Earth’s moon — tells them that the rings are relatively recent, having originated less than 100 million years ago and perhaps as recently as 10 million years ago.To appreciate the astonishment of these figures, one must understand that 100 million years is 1/45th the assumed age of the solar system, and 10 million years is 1/450th the assumed age. If you stretched out a rope 45 feet long representing 4.5 billion years, the upper estimate would be one foot at the near end of the rope, and the lower estimate a tenth of a foot – 1.2 inches! What was going on the rest of the time indicated by that rope? Did it even exist? What happened just “yesterday” that we see these beautiful rings in all their glory, especially when they would disappear just as fast? At max, that lifetime of the rings would be represented by just five feet on our rope, out of 45 feet.It’s not that scientists are unable to concoct scenarios that could form the rings recently. Evolutionists, we know, are highly experienced storytellers. Dr Iess and team suggest a comet or moon disintegrated and became the rings, which seems highly improbable to have occurred so recently, lucky for us. The point is that that the evidence requires an improbable scenario to support a dogma.Cassini scientists, all of them moyboys, would prefer old rings for philosophical reasons. They don’t want to think of human beings being special, coincidentally living at a rare epoch when the rings exist to be observed and studied. But there are reasons to prefer the younger estimate of 10 million years, which would aggravate the problem further, putting the rings on their evolutionary timeline at the age of the great apes just before they evolved into humans. The reason? Saturn has age problems of its own (20 Dec 2018), and some of its moons, including Enceladus, Titan, Dione and Iapetus, are young, too!Young TitanCassini scientists now claim to have evidence for rain on Titan. A new paper in Geophysical Research Letters interprets observations of bright patches near Titan’s north pole to be specular reflections, the “wet sidewalk effect” like when you see a fuzzy sun reflected on wet pavement at certain angles. This implies a smooth, reflective surface, as would be expected after rain. The rain in Titan’s case would not be from water, since the temperature is about -290° F, but from methane, which should condense and liquefy at those temperatures. Space.com and Fox News Science summarize the findings. (Fox drags in irrelevant speculations about ‘alien life’ on Titan.)Why does this imply Titan is young? Whenever a dynamic process is observed on a solar system body, one needs to ask if that could be sustained for billions of years. As we have reported numerous times (most recently 3 May 2018), Titan’s methane supply also has an upper limit of 10 million to 100 million years, so why does any of it still exist today? And while there are river channels on Titan, they appear fairly shallow. Having methane rain on Titan for 4.5 billion years would have eroded the entire surface multiple times over, and yet scientists observe sand dunes around the equator. It pushes credibility to assume Titan has maintained its current landscape for billions of years. And despite its massive size (larger than Mercury), Titan has very few impact craters.Youth ImpactIf Saturn’s majestic rings are young, then certainly those of Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune, which are even less massive, must be young, too. Actually, Saturn’s young-age problems are not that unusual. Most objects in the solar system, from Mercury to Pluto and beyond, challenge old-age beliefs, as we have been reporting for years. Planetary formation theories themselves are being revised way downward in terms of the time required (22 Dec 2018); indeed, planets must form rapidly, they now believe, or they will be destroyed.There’s really no good reason to think that the solar system is billions of years old, except for the habitual way of thinking by materialists. Their consensus dogma needs the time for Darwinian evolution on Earth to turn molecules into man. If that didn’t happen, who needs the billions of years anyway? Follow the evidence where it leads.

Meyer battles injuries ahead of Bok opener

first_img29 May 2014 Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer has been dealing with numerous injuries to players ahead of his team’s first test of the year against a World XV at Newlands in Cape Town on Saturday, 7 June. On Wednesday, it was confirmed that lock Eben Etzebeth, who has missed the entire Super Rugby season thus far, will have to undergo approximately three more weeks of rehabilitation on an injured foot before he can be considered for selection.‘A major setback’ “Eben’s situation is a major setback as he’s been one of our best players in the last two seasons,” Meyer said at the Springbok training camp in Durban. “We’re continually monitoring his injury, because he really wants to play for the Springboks next month. However, he is still young and has a highly promising career ahead and his welfare is the most important to us.” Etzebeth was one of 10 players who took no or little part in the field sessions at the Springbok training camp in Durban, which concluded on Wednesday. “We evaluated Eben’s injury at the camp and he did not take part in any of the field sessions as we are managing the process of his return to the field,” said Springbok team doctor Craig Roberts. “We’ve been in discussion with his franchise, his rehab specialist and the foot specialist who operated on him last year. We’re happy with his progress and will work closely with Western Province to ensure he gets back on the field without any risk of further aggravating the injury.”Training camp injury list The other players who missed training sessions at the camp, were Frans Malherbe (prop), Schalk Burger (loose forward), Willem Alberts (loose forward), S’bura Sithole (centre/wing), Frans Steyn (utility back), Juan de Jongh (centre), Johan Goosen (flyhalf), Bismarck du Plessis (hooker) and Duane Vermeulen (No 8). Malherbe is struggling with a significant concussion, which he picked up in a Vodacom Super Rugby match a few weeks ago. As he’s not met the criteria of returning safely to playing, he did not participate in any of the training sessions. Burger suffered a knock to the neck in the DHL Stormers’ last match, against the Toyota Cheetahs. As he was still experiencing some stiffness in his, he was withdrawn from training as a precautionary measure. Alberts and Sithole both picked up grade one hamstring strains while playing for the Cell C Sharks against the Blues last weekend. Their injuries were treated and managed at the training camp. Steyn has been suffering from a chronic knee dysfunction, which has been managed by the Cell C Sharks and upon a request from his franchise, the load on his knee was limited by keeping him out of training. De Jongh did not train on Monday as he suffered from a bout of flu, Goosen had some stiffness in his neck on Tuesday, while the workloads of Du Plessis and Vermeulen were managed during the training camp.‘Incredibly important’ “Player welfare is incredibly important to us,” said Meyer. “We’ve been working closely with the franchises and have taken the decision not to take any risks with players carrying injuries at this camp. “Our medical team worked very hard at the camp, performing medical assessments on all the players and ensuring they get the best possible treatment on behalf of the franchises, as four of them are still playing Vodacom Super Rugby this weekend. “A final decision on the involvement of all the injured players will be taken later this week, before we announce the final squad for the Castle Lager Incoming Series on Saturday.”Out of contention Twelve players who were involved with the Springboks last year are already out of contention for the four tests in June. They are Springbok captain Jean de Villiers (knee), Scarra Ntubeni (foot), Chiliboy Ralepelle (knee), Frik Kirsten (neck), Pieter- Steph du Toit (knee), Franco van der Merwe (ankle), Arno Botha (knee), Pierre Spies (bicep), Louis Schreuder (hand), Pat Lambie (bicep), Gio Aplon (elbow) and Jaque Fourie (ankle).

Ohio’s Crop Progress — July 17, 2017

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Continued wet weather with heavy downpour events caused many fields to be lost to standing water and has stalled harvest, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio State Statistician with the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. There were 1.9 days suitable for fieldwork for the week ending July 16th. Northwest and Central Ohio were drenched by heavy storms. Major rains fell in the vicinity of Hancock, Hardin, Seneca and Wyandot counties on already saturated soils. The Blanchard River near Findlay crested at 16.5 feet, which was three feet above major flood stage. Critical cropland drainage networks were overwhelmed and corn and soybean fields were inundated with water. Reports of Sclerotinia led many growers to scout fields for disease. Winter wheat is still in the fields as wet field conditions has prohibited harvest. Excessive moisture created concerns over head sprout. Pasture and range conditions changed little despite the rains. Farmers delayed manure applications and bailing of straw. Other fieldwork was minimal and limited to mainly spraying.July 17, 2017 Crop Progresslast_img read more

Deadline extended to certify 2018 crop production for MFP program

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest  Leave a CommentUSDA extended the deadline to May 17, 2019 (from May 1) for agricultural producers to certify 2018 crop production for payments through the Market Facilitation Program, which helps producers who have been significantly affected by foreign tariffs, resulting in the loss of traditional exports. USDA’s Farm Service Agency extended the deadline because heavy rainfall and snowfall have delayed harvests in many parts of the country, preventing producers from certifying acres.Payments will be issued only if eligible producers certify before the updated May 17 deadline. Note: The MFP application period closed Feb. 14, 2019. Producers have until May 17, 2019 to certify production.Qualifying cropsThe MFP provides payments to producers of corn, cotton, sorghum, soybeans, wheat, dairy, hogs, fresh sweet cherries and shelled almonds. FSA will issue payments based on the producer’s certified total production of the MFP commodity multiplied by the MFP rate for that specific commodity.“Trade issues, coupled with low commodity prices and recovery from natural disasters, have definitely impacted the bottom line for many agricultural producers,” said FSA Administrator Richard Fordyce. “The MFP payments provide short-term relief from retaliatory tariffs to supplement the traditional farm safety net, helping agricultural producers through these difficult times. Weather conditions this fall, winter and early spring have blocked many producers from completing harvest of their crops, and we want to make sure producers who want to finalize their MFP application have an opportunity.”Producers can certify production by contacting their local FSA office or through farmers.gov.About the Market Facilitation ProgramU.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue launched the trade mitigation program to assist farmers suffering from damage because of unjustified trade retaliation by foreign nations. FSA implemented MFP in September 2018 as a relief strategy to protect agricultural producers while the Administration works on free, fair and reciprocal trade deals to open more markets to help American farmers compete globally. To date, more than $8.3 billion has been paid to nearly 600,000 applicants.The MFP is established under the statutory authority of the Commodity Credit Corporation Charter Act and is administered by FSA.More informationFor more information, contact your local FSA office or visit the program’s website.  Leave a Commentlast_img read more

He was in total control on both ends, and the Raptors shot 53 percent — a franchise record for a road playoff game. Serge Ibaka scored 13 and Kyle Lowry had nine assists for the Raptors.“Road wins are the best, especially in the playoffs,” Leonard said. “And obviously, we all know the job isn’t done yet.”A flurry at the end of the first half, led by Leonard and Siakam, put Toronto up by double digits and the margin stayed there the rest of the way.Vucevic missed from close range — the Magic argued that Leonard was guilty of goaltending, the referees disagreed — with about 2:45 left in the half, a disputed play that could have gotten Orlando within seven.Instead, the Magic went into the break down by 16.Toronto closed the half on an 11-1 run, with Leonard scoring the first five and Siakam hitting a pair of 3s for the final six. The last of those 3s by Siakam came with 4.5 seconds left, and the Raptors headed into intermission with a 58-42 cushion.“These series, and the games in the series, are a lot about imposing your will on a team,” Raptors coach Nick Nurse said.Whenever Orlando flashed some hope in the third quarter, Leonard immediately snuffed it out. A dunk by Gordon cut the lead to 13? Leonard made a 3.A 3-pointer by Fournier to get within 12? Leonard made a pullup.A stepback by Gordon to get within 12 again?

That’s what they pay the man for, to come down here and be Kawhi Leonard.”And before long, there was no more doubt about the outcome. Magic fans started leaving midway through the fourth quarter. The team’s dancers gathered for a group photo at midcourt not long after the final buzzer, as if they knew the last home game of the season had just ended.TIP-INSRaptors: Toronto is 28-2 this season (and 16-0 on the road) when leading by at least 10 points at the half. … Leonard’s teams are 60-31 when he plays in the postseason. Among players in this year’s playoffs with at least 60 postseason wins, only Draymond Green, Shaun Livingston, Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry — all Golden State Warriors — have a better winning percentage.Magic: Orlando, which fell behind 11-0 in Game 2 and 10-0 in Game 3, started Game 4 on a 7-0 run. The Magic started 6 for 6 from the field, and then missed 26 of their next 38 shots — going 1 for 13 from 3-point range during that drought. … Terrence Ross beat the buzzer for the second straight game; it was a midcourt shot to close the first half of Game 2, and this time it was a 35-footer to end the third quarter.VIRAL MOMENTNurse was trending on social media for much of the game, after a fairly nondescript 3-second call on Fred VanVleet with 2:12 left in the opening quarter elicited quite the reaction from him. Nurse stood almost perfectly still on the sideline after the call, his mouth agape for about 15 seconds in some sort of disbelief. “Is that a good thing?” Nurse asked afterward, when told he was a social-media phenomenon. SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte “We’re better than what we’ve shown,” Gordon said.And now the Magic’s season is squarely on the brink. There have been 11 teams to successfully rally from a 3-1 series deficit in a best-of-seven NBA series, and of those, only three pulled it off by winning a Game 7 on the road.So it’s not impossible — just highly improbable.“Our guys have fought hard all year,” Magic coach Steve Clifford said.ADVERTISEMENT Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting Cayetano: Senate, Drilon to be blamed for SEA Games mess Toronto Raptors’ Kawhi Leonard (2) drives to the basket against Orlando Magic’s Aaron Gordon, left, during the first half in Game 4 of a first-round NBA basketball playoff series, Sunday, April 21, 2019, in Orlando, Fla.

Jamaica to Lobby US Gov’t on Medical Cannabis

first_img He noted that while marijuana is legally available in some form in several American states “most US banks do not want anything to do with money from the cannabis industry for fear it could expose them to legal trouble from the federal government, which still considers marijuana illegal”. Story Highlights Minister of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries, Hon. Audley Shaw, says the Jamaican Government is in full support of any lobbying effort to get United States (US) banks to facilitate stakeholders in the medical cannabis industry.Speaking to JIS News following the two-day Jamaica International Exhibition (JIE) in St. James recently, Mr. Shaw said the Government will be using all of its diplomatic channels to petition the American Government, mainly through its Treasury Department, to loosen its financial laws to address the problem of de-risking.He noted that while marijuana is legally available in some form in several American states “most US banks do not want anything to do with money from the cannabis industry for fear it could expose them to legal trouble from the federal government, which still considers marijuana illegal”.The conflict between state and federal law has left many marijuana growers and sellers in the growing global industry in a legal dilemma, shutting them out of everyday financial services like opening a bank account or obtaining a credit card.The Minister noted that the Administration stands in full solidarity with the attorneys general from 33 states, who last week sent a letter to Congress, urging members to fully open the doors of the US banking system to the legal marijuana industry.“The local banks are fearful of funding the growth of the medical cannabis industry for fear of being de-risked by their international counterparts in the US,” he pointed out.“All of our local commercial banks are obliged right now to go through the New York system as it relates to the movement of money internationally,” he said.Mr. Shaw said that this is posing a problem for the development of a lucrative medical cannabis industry, and is affecting Jamaica’s ability to make an impact in the rapidly growing global market.“I am not talking about recreational marijuana now. We are talking about cannabis for medicinal purposes. We probably can do better than anybody in this (market),” he contended.In the meantime, the Cannabis Licensing Authority (CLA) says Jamaica remains “at the very top” of cannabis reform efforts regionally.According to Director of the CLA, Delano Seiveright, it was in late 2016 that the current board of CLA started taking applications, thereafter granting the first set of licences in late 2017.“Today, we have over 35 licences issued spanning cultivator, retail, processing and research and development. More broadly, we have 600 applications to date that include 190 applications at the conditional approval stage and another 367 at desk review and verification stage,” he pointed out.“No other country in the Caribbean has achieved even quarter of what Jamaica has and the board of the CLA, led by Hyacinth Lightbourne and its Chief Executive Officer, Lincoln Allen, deserves commendation for their efforts to position Jamaica as a future leader in this industry” Mr. Seiveright said. Speaking to JIS News following the two-day Jamaica International Exhibition (JIE) in St. James recently, Mr. Shaw said the Government will be using all of its diplomatic channels to petition the American Government, mainly through its Treasury Department, to loosen its financial laws to address the problem of de-risking.

Pavlidis launches network on International Womens Day

first_imgWhittlesea councillor, Kris Pavlidis has seized on the 2010 theme for International Women’s Day (IWD) to launch a new woman’s advocate network, Women Matter Two (WM2). The launch, which celebrates the IWD theme, ‘equal rights, equal opportunity: progress for all’ took place at the Whittlesea council offices on Tuesday as part of the council’s IWD Award Ceremony.Cr Pavlidis thought the formation of the network was necessary, following her convening of a workshop that revealed that Whittlesea women wanted more information, and opportunities to participate in decision making levels. “There is still a strong stream of women that feel politics is a man’s domain,” said Cr Pavlidis.“Some of the women, several of which were first generation Greek said that they often voted how their husband asked them to, although this was starting to change. Therefore it is important that women are given enough information and support to become better informed… and to know that it is OK to have their own opinions.”However it is not only first generation migrant women that are facing issues of equity, according to Cr Pavlidis.By this she highlighted that the majority of people in politics and in senior management positions are men, which does not equitably represent the 51 percent female population of Whittlesea. “The sacrifices that women have to make to advance in their career paths are a lot greater than men,” she said.“The gap is starting to close however that glass ceiling is still very much intact that we are still looking through. We know where we want to go but there are still real obstacles to attain.”WW2 will seek participation and public consultation in its next meeting in May, which will provide the community a chance to input to the network’s mission statement and values. Its mission statement is, ‘promoting and advancing opportunities for all women in the municipality of Whittlesea to participate equitably’. For more details, contact Cr Kris Pavlidis on 0407 689 032.
