OAKLAND — An indefensible, courtside shove by Warriors part-owner Mark Stevens against Toronto guard Kyle Lowry dominated Thursday’s media availability before the NBA Finals reach Game 4 on Friday at Oracle Arena.Then, about an hour later, the NBA condemned it even further: Stevens drew a one-year ban and a $500,000 fine.Lowry, understandably, had the harshest reaction before that discipline was announced, saying: “He’s not a good look for the ownership group that they have. And I know Joe …
Fossil shows a mammal with a big bite could have munched on small dinosaurs for lunch.Marsupials were supposed to have originated in South America, Live Science says. But Didelphodon vorax was found in Montana’s Hell Creek formation, a hotbed of dinosaurs. And it was well-equipped for attack as well as defense:An ancient mammal the size of a badger may have used its bone-crushing canines and powerful bite to take down little dinosaurs, researchers have found. In fact, the little guy could chomp down with more force, pound for pound, than any other mammal on record.Reporter Laura Geggel points out that this species, reconstructed from four fragmentary fossils, is a game-changer:“What I love about Didelphodon vorax is that it crushes the classic mold of Mesozoic mammals,” the study’s lead researcher Gregory Wilson, an adjunct curator of vertebrate paleontology at the Burke Museum in Seattle, and an associate professor of biology at the University of Washington, said in a statement. “Instead of a shrew-like mammal meekly scurrying into the shadows of dinosaurs, this badger-sized mammal would’ve been a fearsome predator on the Late Cretaceous landscape — even for some dinosaurs.“The animal, estimated to weigh between 5 and 12 pounds, said to be “the largest metatherian to live during the Cretaceous,” was not some primitive mammal prototype, scurrying under dinosaur’s feet trying to come up with an evolutionary strategy to survive. It was a “seriously tough mammal” that had powerful teeth and “the strongest bite of any mammal, alive or extinct.”Moreover, D. vorax‘s canines are similar to those of living felines and hyenas, indicating that these ancient creatures could probably bite into bone while hunting prey, the researchers found. Its extraordinary bite force, when combined with its canines, shearing molars and big, rounded premolars, suggest that it could have crunched on shells and even small dinosaurs, they added.Geggel assumes the asteroid-impact theory for the demise of the dinosaurs, but has to admit all the dinosaurs perished in the event while mammals survived. Somehow, “marsupials managed to live on, diversifying and evolving in their new South American home.” In another Live Science post, Geggel uncritically spells out the latest speculation about dinosaur extinction: their eggs took too long to hatch (see open-access paper in PNAS).The paper about D. vorax in Nature Communications claims that “stem metatherians” (marsupial relatives) appeared and evolved between 252 and 66 million Darwin years ago. That’s an awful long time that mammals and dinosaurs roamed the earth together. Creation investigator Dr. Carl Werner, an expert on living fossils, has traveled the world checking museum displays. He finds it very misleading that museums in their “world of the dinosaurs” exhibits often do not include mammals. In a Creation Magazine article from 2011, he relates the findings from his travels:“At the dinosaur dig sites, scientists have found many unusual extinct mammal forms such as the multituberculates but they have also found fossilized mammals that look like squirrels, possums, Tasmanian devils, hedgehogs, shrews, beavers, primates, and duck-billed platypus. I don’t know how close these mammals are to the modern forms because I was not able to see most of these, even after going to so many museums.”“Few are aware of the great number of mammal species found with dinosaurs. Paleontologists have found 432 mammal species in the dinosaur layers; almost as many as the number of dinosaur species. These include nearly 100 complete mammal skeletons. But where are these fossils? We visited 60 museums but did not see a single complete mammal skeleton from the dinosaur layers displayed at any of these museums. This is amazing. Also, we saw only a few dozen incomplete skeletons/single bones of the 432 mammal species found so far. Why don’t the museums display these mammal fossils and also the bird fossils?”Part of the reason may be that museums have a narrative of evolutionary progress they wish to promulgate to an unsuspecting public (for example, Science Daily‘s simplistic statement that the dinosaur extinction “made space for the rise of the mammals“). Another reason may be that evolutionary fossil hunters have blinders on. Calvin Smith borrows a quote from Carl Werner’s book about a paleontologist in another 2011 Creation Magazine. This paleontologist says that he finds mammals on almost all his dinosaur digs, but they were not noticed years ago. “We have about 20,000 pounds of bentonite clay that has mammal fossils that we are trying to give away to some researcher,” this paleontologist said. “It’s not that they are not important, it’s just that you only live once and I specialized in something other than mammals. I specialize in reptiles and dinosaurs.” Whether he ever found “some researcher” to take the samples and analyze them is not known. The narrative about the “age of dinosaurs” may be, therefore, an artifact of selective investigation.On a related note, David Catchpoole wrote in 2014 at Creation.com that evolutionists are divided about the coexistence of placental mammals with dinosaurs. Today, placentals outnumber marsupials, but that was not the case when dinosaurs roamed the earth. Catchpoole cites a 2014 Nature article by Ewen Callaway that indicates the evidence is not decisive that placentals evolved only after the dinosaur extinction. Callaway, in turn, cites noted dinosaur hunter Phil Donoghue’s opinion that “it is likely that animals existed before that, but were not preserved as fossils or their remains have yet to be discovered.”The discovery of dinosaur soft tissue has already falsified the moyboys’ narrative with its millions of Darwin years, so in one sense, the game is over. Creationists can use this evidence to support their view that the fossil record was formed in a unique cataclysm—the Flood—not in a gradual record over long ages. But I was concerned by Carl Werner’s admission that no large mammals have been found with dinosaurs. Why don’t we ever find a mammoth next to a duckbill dinosaur? or a buffalo next to a triceratops? Thinking over this, I decided to compare a photo I took of some fairly large living mammals—American bison—with aerial photos of where they were photographed, Custer State Park in South Dakota.Three perspectives on a large mammal habitatAs you can see, from just 5,000 feet up, the bison would appear as specks if you could even find them. They would disappear entirely from 30,000 feet up. The earth is a large place. The largest animals today, elephants and giraffes, would similarly vanish from these perspectives. Now replace the bison with T. rex or Triceratops. They would appear as tiny specks scattered over a vast area. Considering that most animals die without fossilizing at all, what’s the probability a large animal will be found in the fossil record?Consider other reasons why large mammals have not been found with dinosaurs. For one thing, large mammals are less plentiful than small ones. What’s the ratio of mice to rhinos, or raccoons to giraffes? We would expect to find many more small mammal fossils than large ones. Another reason is that large mammals might have inhabited different ecosystems than dinosaurs, or avoided the dinosaurs that ate the same food. Then consider that 95% of fossils discovered represent marine invertebrates, like seashells. Fossils of large mammals are extremely rare. If the probability is low a large animal will fossilize in the first place, it is doubly improbable that different large animals would be found in the same location unless they inhabited the same ecosystem.Add to that the blindness of evolutionary paleontologists described above; they only see what they expect to see. Who knows? A mastodon bone might exist in the 20,000 pounds of bentonite clay that the evolutionist tossed out, because he specializes in dinosaurs and that’s what his mind is focused on. When they find dinosaurs, they automatically label the soil Jurassic or Cretaceous and assign it ages in the tens of millions of years. When they find mastodons or mammoths, they automatically label the soil Pleistocene and assign it more recent ages. The evolutionary bias, therefore, is built in, even if Cretaceous and Pleistocene strata are found in close proximity (vertically or horizontally). Maybe you can think of other reasons.Scientists like to quote the proverb, “Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.” We do have dinosaur soft tissue, and we do have hundreds of small mammals found in dinosaur strata. Those are sufficient to falsify Darwinism and its long ages. Now, let’s send a bunch of home-schooled teens on dinosaur digs with Darwin blinders off, and see what they turn up.(Visited 198 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License. Many people predict that the open science movement could be every bit as far-reaching to the future of humanity as the scientific method, first articulated by Roger Bacon in the 13th century.That raises a question: What is open science?Open science can be interpreted in several ways, but it essentially can be described as an effort to make scientific research more open, more public. Open-science proponents argue that the Internet has made this possible. As a matter of fact, many of them contend that the old, traditional approaches to scientific inquiry and discovery are antiquated and even hinder the advance of science.Likewise, many supporters of open science contend that the lowered transaction costs that have accompanied Web 2.0 have rendered scientific research far less expensive. The huge corporate and government-funded laboratories that were once required to secure major breakthroughs, such as vacuum tubes and the atom bomb, are no longer as essential in many cases.Opening up research, making it as available for input from as many players as possible would not only speed up scientific inquiry and discovery, but would also render it far more efficient.The idea essentially began with famed Cambridge University mathematician Timothy Gowers. Gowers (pictured right) got the idea to solve a handful of highly complex mathematical problems by posting them to his Weblog and inviting people to offer suggestions for solving them. He dubbed it the Polymath Project and initially had no idea how far-reaching this effort would turn out to be. In fact, it ended up producing a series of new ideas and insights as well as several collaborative papers published under the pseudonym DHJ Polymath.In one respect, the Polymath Project is not new. It’s already been foreshadowed in other areas of science, including The Human Genome Project, the pioneering effort to map and share DNA.It also parallels much of what already is unfolding within the computer software industry.Science, it seems, is proving no more immune to the effects of Web 2.0 than any other facet of modern life.The economic downtown has contributed too. Open science may prove a cost-effective alternative as governments around the world slash conventional research funding, proponents contend.It may be instructive to look at the Innocentive website to see how one organization is using the concept of challenge prizes and crowdsourcing to allow companies to solve their most difficult problems. Innocentive has had more than 31,000 solutions submitted, of which, more than 1,200 were accepted and awarded prize money, ranging from $1,500 to $1 million, from the sponsoring agency. They tout a success rate of 57% for solving the submitted problems (source). By bringing different perspectives and experiences to a challenge, solvers are able to come up with innovative solutions that are often not apparent to the teams of experts already working on a problem.To be sure, open science has garnered its share of critics. Many of them argue that genuine scientific achievement is not possible without traditional research methods, which often require immense investments of time and manpower. Likewise, hundreds of years of experience have underscored the importance of sharing and refining these research findings among scientific peers, typically within accredited scientific journals.For their part, many open-science advocates concede that there will still be a place for more rigorous research methods. On the other hand, they stress that some of the greatest scientific and technological strides in human history have been made by unconventional individuals, often employing unconventional methods. Examples of some of history’s most notable and unconventional scientific and technological innovators include Robert Hooke, Charles Darwin and Benjamin Franklin.Author: Jim Langcuster

Ancelotti has faced accusations of losing the support of senior players from Bayern president Uli Hoeness, while Arjen Robben has been forced to refute suggestions that he was critical of the ousted coach.Despite enduring a rare dip in his managerial career, the former Milan, Juventus, Chelsea, Real Madrid and PSG boss boasts an enviable CV.That should ensure that he is not out of work for long, and Ancelotti has conceded that he would be willing to listen to offers from England.He told Sky Sports: “I want to manage. Not this season, maybe next season.“I have no preference, in the Premier League or at another club. The only thing I want to do is to train.”While ruling nothing out at this stage, Ancelotti’s comments confirm that he is not looking to return to the dugout just yet.He previously stated while attending a charity match in Jerusalem: “I will rest for the next 10 months, so no other teams.”A return to Stamford Bridge could be on the cards for Ancelotti, with current Blues boss Antonio Conte having admitted that he plans to head home at some stage.He has said: “Italy is my homeland, so once I have had some good experiences, formative experiences, important and life-changing experiences, I’ll be back. I don’t know when but that’s the aim.”It is being suggested that such a move could happen in 2018, which would create an opening for Ancelotti.The 58-year-old is also said to be an admirer of Arsenal and would welcome the opportunity to work at Emirates Stadium if Arsene Wenger is ever moved through the exits.Possible landing spots at Everton and West Ham have also been mooted as Ronald Koeman and Slaven Bilic have seen their positions questioned on the back of disappointing starts to 2017-18.Ancelotti has, however, been urged to steer clear of Goodison Park by boyhood Everton fan Joey Barton.He told talkSPORT: “I heard noises about Carlo Ancelotti coming in, but what’s he going to do with that side? He still needs a centre-forward, he still needs a centre-half, he’s still got an issue at right-back.“I wouldn’t take it if I was Ancelotti. You’ve just managed Chelsea, Real Madrid, PSG, Bayern Munich… why would you want the Everton job?” Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.

Hong Kong: Hong Kong airport authorities on Tuesday suspended all check-ins, but reversed a previous statement saying that all departing flights had been cancelled as pro-democracy protesters blocked the facility. “Terminal operations at Hong Kong International Airport have been seriously disrupted, and all check-in processes have now been suspended,” a statement on the airport website said. “All passengers are advised to leave the terminal buildings as soon as possible.” The statement did not clarify how many flights would be cancelled and whether arriving flights would be affected by the decision. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details The statement walked back a previous announcement that said all departing flights had been cancelled. The decision came after thousands of pro-democracy protesters flooded into the airport for the second consecutive day and blocked passengers from reaching entrances to the departure area in both terminals. It came a day after authorities announced the unprecedented complete cancellation of all arriving and departing flights over a massive rally.
The Ministry of Textiles, Government of India, in association with the Asian Heritage Foundation, is organising an exhibition of ingeniously woven historic Indian handmade textile forms as a prelude to World Handmade Textile Biennales. The exhibition was inaugurated by Smriti Irani, Minister of Textiles, and Ajay Tamta, Minister of State for Textiles, at the renovated Handloom Haat in Janpath on March 5, in the presence of Padmabhushan Rajeev Sethi, Chairman, Asian Heritage Foundation. The showcase of handmade textiles at the event unfolds an evocative visual language of design, bridging different periods of Indian textile history. Each displayed piece tells a unique story. The five textile forms with deep roots in India and a strong international footprint include Khadi, Brocade, Ikat, Chintz, and Embroider Also Read – An income drop can harm brainWith an aim to deconstruct matrix of threads and fibres, warp and weft associated with the forms, and also to face the changing sensibilities and preferences of the global markets – the proposed Biennales will be organised in the nerve-centers of their practice – Ahmedabad, Varanasi, Hyderabad, Jaipur, and Srinagar respectively. The Biennales’ team has even initiated an unprecedented exercise to map the five principal handmade textile skills on the international level. The data which has been collated so far is laid out graphically on five world political maps presented at the event. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardBeing the curtain raiser for the World Handmade Textile Biennales, the exhibition is being held at those grounds of the country from where it re-imagined its creative identity after Independence, through a group of visionaries who laid the foundations of National Handicrafts and Handlooms Museum, and All India Handloom Board. Celebrating the living heritage of the county, the ongoing exhibition is a homage to such visionaries, with a hopes to recapture the essence of handmade production across the country through these five textile traditions.

Benfica coach Rui Vitória conceded they were outplayed by Bayern Munich as their hopes of a Champions League knockout place ended in a 5-1 defeatThe Portuguese giants arrived at Munich on Tuesday night needing a win in order to retain any hopes of leapfrogging Ajax for second-place in Group E.Instead, Benfica were handed a thrashing with braces from Arjen Robben and Robert Lewandowski, along with Frank Ribery’s late effort, securing Bayern victory.Carvalho Fernandes did get one back for Benfica, after the break, but it proved to be nothing more than a slight setback for Bayern.“We weren’t quite on top of our game today, we didn’t play well. We failed to put our strategy into practice,” Vitória told reporters on the Bayern website.Match Preview: RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 RB Leipzig will have the chance to prove their title-winning capabilities when they host Bayern Munich today at 18:30 (CET).“We should have been well-organised in defence and aggressive in winning the ball before exploding forward.“We failed at that. It was also because of Bayern, they were dominant and stifled our moves.“They’re one of Europe’s biggest teams. We have to analyse the match, but Bayern won deservedly.”Benfica will next host Feirense in a Primeira Liga match on Saturday at the Estádio da Luz.
