TAKING A BOW—Steelers wide receiver Plaxico Burress (80) bows after making a touchdown catch as Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden (23) walks away on Dec. 30, 2012, in Pittsburgh. (AP Photo/Don Wright) by Ulish Carter Courier Staff WriterWay back in 2003 the Steelers finished with a 6-10 record causing many fans to demand that Bill Cowher be run out of town and for the total overhauling of the team. According to the critics, the defense was too old and the offense was ineffective. But the Steelers, unlike chronic losers like Cleveland, Kansas City, Cincinnati and others didn’t panic, but chose to simply make a few changes which led to the best season in their history in 2004 with a 15-1 record, followed by a 12-4 season in 2005 culminating with a Super Bowl title. So what will the Steelers do after an 8-8 season which is the worst in Mike Tomlin’s six year career as head coach? The criticism this year is that the defense is too old, and the offense is too inconsistent. So what can be done to correct the problems?First of all the defense is just fine. With Troy Polamalu, James Harrison, Ike Taylor and LaMarr Woodley missing a large portion of the season, they still finished as the number one defense in the NFL. There has been talk about not bringing Harrison, Casey Hampton, Barry Foote and Keenan Lewis back. Hampton and Foote because of age; Harrison because of his big contract, and Lewis because after an outstanding season, he may be offered big bucks from other teams because his contract is up. Harrison has to be brought back because there’s no one on the Steelers or in the league who can replace him. He’s still one of the five best in the NFL, and without him teams can keep on stopping Woodley. But with the two healthy and Lawrence Timmons playing the best ball of his career, the Steelers would continue to have the best set of linebackers in the game. Foote can be replaced by one of the young reserves, but why mess with a good thing.If Hampton is not brought back it will be because the team feels that young second year player Steve McLendon is ready to start. He has looked very impressive with limited playing time. Even with Hampton back they will share the nose tackle slot. Brett Keisel is old, but is playing as well as any defensive end in the game and Ziggy Hood is getting better each year.Even though Curtez Allen was impressive filling in for the injured Taylor, he’s still not as good as either Taylor or Lewis. Lewis, in his third season, is a Pro-Bowl caliber player who is desperately needed if the Steelers hope to be a Super Bowl contender. With him returning to the team with Taylor, Polamalu, and Ryan Clark, who also has developed into one of the 5 best safeties in the game, the Steelers defense would be second to none. Who cares about age? The teams battling for the top draft picks are generally the youngest teams in the league and perennial losers. Veterans win, because it takes time for teams to jell together.On the offensive side of the ball there has to be changes but not massive changes. They must come up with a way to score more points because they cannot beat Tom Brady, Peyton Manning or all these young guns at quarterback scoring 20 or less a game. Look for Mike Wallace and Rashard Mendenhall to be gone, because Wallace is asking for superstar money when he’s a one dimensional player who has a long way to go before even being mentioned in the same breath with the top receivers in the league. Mendenhall has been injury prone, and has a big contract. Both Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman have proven they can be effective, and Chris Rainey will also see more action next season. The Steelers problem is keeping a healthy offensive line and improving the deteriorating production from Ben Roethlisberger. It’s time he stop living off the past. What has he done in the past two years to put him among the elite quarterbacks in the league, especially with all these youngsters hitting the league? He has had a great career, but that don’t win games today. With rookies David DeCastro, Mike Adams and Kevin Beachum all getting critical playing time on the line this year because of injuries they will be much improved next year, and if Willie Colon can stay healthy he showed he can be one of the better run blocking guards in the league. He and Max Starks make a solid combo on the blind side and shouldn’t be tampered with. With Wallace gone, Antonio Brown and Heath Miller should have Pro-Bowl seasons, with Emmanuel Sanders, Jerricho Cotchery and Plaxico Burress giving them one of the best groups of receivers in the league. Signing Burress is a key to the return of Roethlisberger to past years effectiveness because he gives him a big target, and maturity on the field. Hines Ward was missed dearly last season mostly because of his leadership. They also need to pick up a quarterback in the draft and sign a veteran quarterback to back up Ben. Even though Charlie Batch has performed well when given a chance, it’s clear the coaching staff doesn’t have the confidence in him, and Byron Leftwitch is injury prone. They need a veteran who can come in and win if Ben gets hurt, and a youngster who can be groomed to take over for Ben in the near future, instead of waiting until he becomes totally ineffective with age. No the Steelers don’t need a major overhaul, they just need a few tweaks here and there, starting at the quarterback position. In a league that has moved from the running game and hard nose defense to the high scoring passing game with guys like Manning, Brady, Aaron Rogers, Russell Wilson, Drew Brees, Robert Griffin III, Cam Newton, and Andrew Luck, to make it to the Super Bowl, which Pittsburghers expect, 20 or less points a game is not going to do it. And the buck stops at the quarterback whether we want to admit or not. After a humbling season, look for Ben and coach Mike Tomlin to get serious about improving the offense, which is still young. If the offensive production is improved look for the Steelers to once again be in the Super Bowl hunt next season. If it isn’t, look for changes at quarterback and the head coaching slot in the very near future.
Nick Newman has seen a lot since heading north of the 49th parallel to pursue his junior hockey career.However, Sunday in Summerside, PEI, the former Nelson Leafs center got to experience the feeling of winning a Canadian National Championship after the Brooks Bandits won the 2013 RBC Cup with a 3-1 victory over host Summerside Western Capitals.Newman and the Bandits become the eighth team from the Alberta Junior Hockey League to win Canada’s National Junior A Championship, and the first to do it since the Camrose Kodiaks won their lone national title in 2001. Newman, who spent the 2011-12 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League season with Nelson where he led the Leafs in scoring after arriving during training camp via the Vernon Vipers of the B.C. Hockey League, joined Brooks this season scoring 10 goals and seven assists in 52 games.Newman, the oldest of two sons of Tina and David Newman of Saugus, California, scored once in 12 playoff games for Brooks.The 6’1, 185-pound 19-year-old forward joins a handful of other Nelson Leaf graduates to achieve success after leaving the Heritage City.Leaf rookie of the year Dylan Walchuk won the RBC Cup playing for Vernon Vipers in 2009 and 2010 while Geoff Kinrade captured the 2011 Calder Cup playing for Binghamton in 2011 and recently the 2013 Swiss League title as a member of Bern.Goalie Grant Rollheiser won a NCAA National Championship playing for Boston University while Nelson Minor Hockey defenceman Isaac MacLeod helped Boston College win the NCAA title in 2012.Bruno Campese helped Portland win the Memorial Cup in 1983 as a member of the Portland Winterhawks.
JOCKEY QUOTES RAFAEL BEJARANO, MIDNIGHT STORM, WINNER: “The track has been playing fast since earlier today. I knew I had to put my horse on the lead. I needed a good start and when I put him on the lead I felt the pressure right away. Dalmore was right next to me, chasing me the whole way. I kept him on the lead but tried to give him a breather at the half-mile pole. At the three-eighths I knew he would keep running. He loves to be on the lead and he always gives me something else.” TRAINER QUOTES TYLER BAZE, ACCELERATE, SECOND: “He’s going to be a super horse, I really mean that. I think John’s going to try blinkers next time and we’ll try to get him into the race a little sooner. He’s going to be a special horse.” PHIL D’AMATO, MIDNIGHT STORM, WINNER: “I thought he would love the surface. They were going fast. I saw forty-five and 1:08 and change but he dug in there gamely and held them off today.“We were going to the lead, whether Arrogate was in or not. Rafael followed the game plan. We thought Accelerate would be the one pressing us, not Dalmore, but it still worked out and he maintained through some grueling fractions and he showed his class in the stretch.“Obviously, Arrogate scratching improved our chances of winning today. In my eyes, that horse is the Horse of the Year. At the same time, there’s a bit of you that wants to test your horse against the best and see where you stand but I’m very happy with my horse’s performance.” NOTES: The winning owners are Alex Venneri of La Canada, CA, who races as Venneri Racing, Inc. and Little Red Feather Racing.

…they fly while dreaming. Did you know that swifts, the aerial acrobats of the air, sleep on the wing? That’s not all, they adapt their wing shape to turn on a dime. Science Daily summarized the cover story of Nature this week (April 26) that examined “wing morphing” in swifts – their ability to change wing shape in flight. Dutch and Swedish scientists ran tests in wind tunnels to measure the lift and drag for different wing shapes. Extended wings are more efficient for gliding, but swept wings are good for tight turns and speed. Swept wings also protect against breakage. Swifts gain a 3-fold advantage in flight efficiency by continually adjusting the shape of their wings. Wing morphing is the “latest trend in aviation,” the article says. NASA is experimenting with micro-aircraft that can vary wing shape in flight for use in surveillance. Students in the Netherlands are also imitating the flight of the swift with their model aircraft. But then, even the Wright brothers observed birds for ideas on how to construct wings for the first airplane. The article also says that swifts even mate in the air. They only land on their cliff-hanging nests to lay eggs. Otherwise, it’s in the air all the time—up to 1.5 km high at night while roosting in mid-air. European swifts migrate to South Africa and back each year. In a lifetime, a swift will fly 4.5 million kilometers—equivalent to 100 round trips around the Earth.Swifts also eat up to 20,000 insects a night. Fortunately, no evolution fables polluted this story. No one tried to say that a T. rex morphed into a swift over millions of years. That wouldn’t fly on a wing or a prayer. Who taught swifts the kind of aerodynamics NASA admires? Who gave them both the hardware and software to live on the wing almost all the time? Who programmed the autopilot that allows them to roost without a roost? Calling a swift swift is like calling an orange orange. What would they call a human? Smart? Wise? Sometimes. Homo is not always sapiens sapiens. For proof, see next entry.(Visited 17 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
A re-assessment of data from the Galileo spacecraft appears to confirm suspected eruptions from the surface of Europa, Jupiter’s icy moon.The “active body club” may have gained a new member. The earth and Io have volcanoes; Triton has nitrogen eruptions, and Enceladus famously stunned Cassini scientists who witnessed over 100 geysers shooting icy particles and dust out of cracks in its south pole. Is Europa bringing the count of active bodies to five? (Note: Mercury, Venus, Mars, possibly Pluto, and even the moon have extinct volcanoes, but only a few bodies are actively erupting now.)Europa (top) compared to Earth and Mars.The Hubble Space Telescope caught hints of plumes a few years ago, but confirmation was difficult. The data to clinch it may have been sitting in archives from the Galileo spacecraft (1996-2003). Jet Propulsion Scientist Xianzhe Jia now believes he found the “smoking gun,” so to speak: variations in Europa’s induced magnetic field. A JPL press release on Monday shared reasons for thinking Europa may also be erupting:Data collected by NASA’s Galileo spacecraft in 1997 were put through new and advanced computer models to untangle a mystery — a brief, localized bend in the magnetic field — that had gone unexplained until now. Previous ultraviolet images from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope in 2012 suggested the presence of plumes, but this new analysis used data collected much closer to the source and is considered strong, corroborating support for plumes. The findings appear in Monday’s issue of the journal Nature Astronomy.An embedded video clip in the article shows animations of what the plume might look like. Jia used newer techniques of data analysis to make a convincing case. “The data were there, but we needed sophisticated modeling to make sense of the observation,” he said. His results show not only evidence that the plume is real, but that the spacecraft actually flew through it.As could be expected, the press release plays up the possibility of life. Europa is believed to have a subsurface ocean that accounts for the induced magnetic field. If the moon is erupting particles through its icy crust, scientists are imagining that the plume could serve up organisms, making detection easier than having to dig down through the icy crust.“If plumes exist, and we can directly sample what’s coming from the interior of Europa, then we can more easily get at whether Europa has the ingredients for life,” Pappalardo said. “That’s what the mission is after. That’s the big picture.”A mission called the Europa Clipper may be called on to look for not Europeans, but Europans. One letter makes a big difference.Speaking of magnetic fields, there’s a new paper in Geophysical Research Letters about Ganymede, Europa’s neighbor, the largest moon in the solar system. Galileo mission scientists were surprised to find years ago that Ganymede has an intrinsic (not induced) magnetic field. Most of the paper concerns details of the magnetic field, but here’s part of the “plain language summary”—NASA’s Galileo spacecraft made the first ever flyby of Jupiter’s largest moon, Ganymede, on 27 June 1996, discovering that it is the only moon known to generate a magnetic field. As at Earth, Ganymede’s magnetic field projects a magnetic bubble around it called a magnetosphere. Galileo carried a package called the Plasma Subsystem (PLS) that was designed to measure charged particles. Although PLS collected data during this first flyby, the results were never published. Resurrecting the original flight software, we processed these data and present them here for the first time, permitting us to go back with a fine detail brush and fill in some of the structure of this complex and exotic magnetosphere. Charged water‐based particles were observed escaping from the moon, having been blasted off the icy surface by an energetic rain of particles from Jupiter.The scientists also describe Ganymede’s auroral zones, its ionosphere and other manifestations of a magnetic field. Since magnetic fields decay with time, it remains a puzzle that a body this size would have a magnetic field. The comparably-sized moon Titan does not.Planetary scientists need to kick the hydrobioscopy habit and explain how little Euroopa could be erupting material into space for billions of years. Enceladus is even smaller. Another paper in Icarus was just published that tried to keep Enceladus going, but admitted that “Explaining Enceladus’ endogenic power requires ocean and shell thicknesses that are smaller than the expected values.” Deal with that question instead of doing a sidestep with a distraction about life.

(Visited 469 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked… nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.Psalm 1 divides people into two groups: those who humbly follow God’s law, and those who mock it and disobey it. When people think they can go against what God created, it’s like jumping off a height. They can choose the action, but not the consequences.One in three youth who break the law identify as LGBTQ (MedicalExpress). In the beginning, God created humans male and female. He ordained marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Many people today, having jettisoned this common-sense principle that accords with science, feel they can “identify” as whatever they feel like at the moment. But they can’t choose the consequences. The authors of a study bend over backward to not cast homosexuals and transgenders in a bad light, but their findings shout for them:Adolescents who identified as non-heterosexual are significantly over-represented among first-time offenders, according to a new study that examined sexual orientation, gender expression and mental health among adolescents who are involved in the justice system, but are not incarcerated.The study also found that depression, self-harm, and drug and alcohol use were more prevalent among youth who identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer (LGBTQ) or other sexual minorities, as compared with straight youth.“It would be incorrect to conclude that sexual-minority status puts a youth at increased risk of offending,” said first author Matthew Hirschtritt, MD, MPH, of the UCSF Department of Psychiatry and the UCSF Weill Institute for Neurosciences. “But if we compare court-involved sexual minority youth with court-involved straight youth, we see more severe psychological distress and a greater likelihood of child-welfare system involvement.”Transgender individuals likely have higher risk for heart disease (Medical Xpress). In all scientific fairness, everyone is at some risk of heart disease. The issue is whether transgenders put themselves at higher risk by taking unnatural drugs to fight against their biological nature.Transgender individuals may be at higher risk for myocardial infarction and death due to cardiovascular disease, according to several studies. This increased risk may be due to the hormone therapy that transgender patients take for masculinization or feminization.On the Washington Watch radio program August 1, Tony Perkins talked with a pastor in Canada who warned that pastors and doctors can now go to prison for opposing the transgender movement, even when children are being administered hormones, contrary to the Hippocratic Oath, that can permanently harm their bodies and minds.Fear of litigation is a key factor in decision to perform C-sections (Medical Xpress). Natural childbirth is very painful for a woman, but there are reasons it is to be preferred over surgery except in extreme cases. You can thank overactive lawyers—not nature—for putting women at risk with an unnatural option:Fear of litigation and perceived safety concerns and are among the key factors influencing the decision to perform a caesarean section, according to a major international literature review conducted by researchers at the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Trinity College Dublin.The rising rate of caesarean sections (CS) worldwide, despite the considerable evidence that vaginal birth is safer and associated with fewer complications, is a growing concern among women and healthcare professionals.The authors urge returning to nature:Assistant Professor Dr. Deirdre Daly, the supervisor of the Ph.D. work, added: “It is really important to understand these factors because they influence individual clinicians’ attitudes towards the natural progress of labour and spontaneous birth, even when the woman and baby are well and have no risk factors. This then leads to the decision to intervene prematurely, often without medically justifiable reasons.”Invariances in the architecture of pride across small-scale societies (PNAS). To the God-fearing person, pride is a sin to be avoided—arguably the worst of sins. “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall,” warned Solomon (Proverbs 16:13). Today, though, pride is trendy! Cities even in the Bible land of Israel have pride parades, where rebels against God’s created order flaunt their rebellion to cheers of crowds, and no one dare criticize them. To Darwinians, pride is an evolutionary strategy. This paper by 16 social Darwinists, among them Leda Cosmides and John Tooby, who are working to destroy civilization with Darwinian ethics (7/23/17), make pride out to be a good thing (or at least an amoral development in evolved populations, including humans). They studied 10 small-scale societies in Africa, looking for evolutionary games that promote hubristic leaders to prominence. No word about any harm these leaders cause to their subjects. It’s all evolutionary games. Look at the cold calculus in their amoral, Darwinian just-so story:Darwin and Marx believed that “laws of nature” favored the ruthless.In general, there are two classes of bargaining tactics organisms have available for influencing others’ choices. First, they can conditionally inflict costs—aggression; second, they can bestow (or withhold) benefits—altruism. The first causes individuals to be respected (or feared). The second causes individuals to be valued. Thus, it might be advantageous to put weight on another’s welfare, (i) because the individual is formidable and could inflict costs if not propitiated or (ii) because the individual’s actions or existence make positive fitness contributions to the valuer, which would be diminished or lost if assistance was not given. Here, we call these two components respect (for formidability) and valuation (for positive fitness contributions)—also referred to as dominance and prestige. Being respected and being favorably valued by others were resources, and selection on our ancestors would have shaped the human motivational system to cost-effectively promote access to both of those different types of resources.This kind of thinking has nothing bad to say about dictators like Robert Mugabe who have destroyed their countries and reduced their citizens to poverty, or like the Kim family in North Korea who have starved millions and continue to commit Nazi-like tortures against dissidents. To Cosmides and Tooby’s gang, evil dictators, like any other evolved animals, are just playing evolutionary fitness strategy games that work for them. A question we’d love to ask them: should they respect Donald Trump because of his dominance and prestige?Blessings to Those Who Align with the Created OrderPrayer makes families connected, unified and bonded with less relational tension (Medical Xpress). It goes without saying that the Bible often commends prayer, even commands prayer. From the very beginning, communicating with their Creator and learning from Him was Adam and Eve’s greatest delight. Secular Big Science these days often mocks or ignores “religious” exercise of any kind. Atheists mock at people who feel the need to talk to their “invisible sky daddy” instead of exercising pride in their own powers. Let them mock. They can’t deny the findings of a study published in the Journal of Family Psychology:Family prayer as a means for continuing family religious traditionsFamily prayer involves issues and concerns of individuals and the familyFamily prayer provides feelings of connectedness, unity and bondingFamily prayer helps reduce relational tensionsThe authors of the study list several specific examples of family members turning to righteousness and avoiding evil due to prayer, and experiencing more love, joy and happiness as a result.Although the religious nature of prayer was directed toward God and worship, the content of family prayers served as a valuable interpersonal communication tool for family members. Prayers often included individual as well as family issues…Many families found that regular prayer together eased relational tensions and facilitated better relationships. In resolving conflict, many participants also used prayer individually to center or restrain themselves, helping them calm down before interacting directly with family members to relieve tensions or reconcile.So if Darwinian evolution produced beings who appear to have higher fitness by engaging in this behavior, maybe some evolutionary biologists would be wiser joining them on their knees, too. Let them first hear the warning of the Apostle James, though, that God will not hear selfish hypocrites (James 1:5-7).The lifesaving power of gratitude (The Conversation). Richard Gunderman (Indiana University) is the latest of many extolling the mental health benefits of gratitude. In this case, though, he does not leave out God as a worthy recipient of our thanks. Taking the example of Robinson Crusoe, he quotes Defoe’s portrayal of the turning point when Crusoe realized that his trials had fallen on him for good:“I gave humble and hearty thanks that God had been pleased to discover to me, even that it was possible I might be more happy in this solitary condition, than I should have been a liberty of society, and all the pleasures of the world… It was now that I began sensibly to feel how much more happy this life I now led was, with all its miserable circumstances, than the wicked, cursed, abominable life I led all the past part of my days.”Of course, political correctness on a secular site like this demands that Gunderman not prefer any “faith traditions” over others, but he does acknowledge the “wisdom of religious and philosophical traditions that extend back thousands of years.”The question we would like to ask Gunderman (if he espouses Darwinian evolution) is, to what mutation he would give thanks? “I thank thee, almighty Stuff Happens Law, that good stuff happened by chance upon me,” doesn’t seem to likely to procure the health benefits of gratitude.Jesus said a tree is known by its fruits. The atheist critics who attack CEH are among the most bigoted, prideful, angry, hate-filled, mean-spirited, stuck-up, arrogant, bitter people we have ever encountered. And so we ask them, if in your view natural selection produced happy believers who follow God’s will—ones who pray, give thanks and live according to the law of the Lord—why are you attacking the fittest? That’s kind of stupid. Join them!
“If we knew that the result would be 3-0 at the start of the series, we would have taken it,” Momentum Proteas Women’s coach Hilton Moreeng said after his side had secured victory. 17 September 2013 Bangladesh were well set to reach the target at 79 without loss in the 14th over, but two run outs and a stumping in the space of three overs brought the home team back into contention. The teams move on to a three-match ODI series, which starts at Sahara Willowmoore Park in Benoni on Friday. SAinfo reporter Bangladesh put in their most consistent performance with the ball to date, and had South Africa under pressure in the opening overs. The Proteas posted 109 for four in their 20 overs, which owed much to a half- century by player of the match and captain, Mignon du Preez. Du Preez (52) and Kapp (24 not out) shared an important 55-run stand for the third wicket, after the loss of openers Trisha Chetty (0) and Lizelle Lee (11) early on. ProudMoreeng said he was proud of the way his players withstood the pressure, and said it had given him an understanding of the character and temperament at his disposal in his squad. South Africa’s national women’s cricket team held their nerve to edge out Bangladesh by three runs in the third and final T20 international at Senwes Park in Potchefstroom on Sunday to complete a 3-0 series victory. Bangladesh needed 12 runs off the final over, with seven wickets in hand, but fell short due to a composed and effective final over from the Proteas’ Marizanne Kapp. ‘They put us under pressure’“I must give credit to Bangladesh,” Moreeng said. “They put us under pressure very early. The first two overs were maidens and we were a wicket down. “The partnership between Kapp and the captain put us back where we wanted to be and we had to settle for 109, which required us to go out there and bowl well.” ‘Building a team’“We are building as a team and it was important for us to start this home series well, especially by playing good cricket and learning from every game that we play.”
