Maverley-Hughenden maintained their unbeaten run in the Red Stripe Premier League following a 0-0 draw against the University of the West Indies (UWI) FC at the UWI Bowl on Sunday. The game was a dull affair as the teams failed to create any clear chances. It was a game lacking creativity and brilliance. Maverley-Hughenden ended the game with 10 players, as Nackwayne Parchment picked up a second yellow card and was shown the red card in 90+ three minutes of the game. Promoted Maverley-Hughenden moved to five points from three games, while UWI pushed to four. UWI’s Andrae Bernal got the best chance in the first half, but missed from close range after the ball fell kindly at his feet. The teams turned over the ball regularly, as none of them took control. They relied mostly on long passes. UWI’s assistant coach, Andrew Peart, said that his team played good defensively, but offensively they weren’t not good enough. “Defensively, we were very good, but on the offensive end were not good enough. We are not creating a lot of chances. We wanted to win at home, but a point is better than losing the game,” Peart told The Gleaner. Maverley’s head coach Lijyasu Simms said his team abandoned their attacking style and battled hard throughout the game. “We had to play a different game today. We earned a point on the road and that is good to keep our unbeaten run. We wanted to stick to our style, but failed to pressure the opponent, especially in the first half,” Simms reasoned. “Now, we will go back to the training ground and prepare for the next game against Jamalco,” he added.

Shay Given and his Republic of Ireland team-mates have one step on the plane to Poland and the Ukraine for next year’s European Championships after a convincing 4-0 win over Estonia tonight.Given was by and large a bystander as Ireland carved out a hard-fought victory over Estonia.Estonia did well at times but goals from Keith Andrews, Jonathon Walters and two from captain Robbie Keane put Ireland in a commanding position for the return leg in Dublin next Tuesday. Estonia were not helped by two sendings-off.Given was delighted by how his team played.“We worked hard. Although we got the goal early on they out us under a bit of pressure.“When they lost a man we began to put them under a little bit of pressure but they were still dangerous. “When we got the second goal their heads went down a little and we pushed on. We have put ourselves in a great position to get into the finals,” he said.The finals will be some reward after Given and his team were cheated by France in Paris last year in the World Cup qualifiers.GIVEN’S DELIGHT AS IRELAND SET FOR EURO CHAMPIONSHIP FINALS was last modified: November 13th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Republic of Irelandseamus colemanShay Given
To believe the standard evolutionary timeline, you have to accept some highly unreasonable notions.Museums and nature TV shows routinely show the march of evolution through time. The story is punctuated by several major extinction events, the most famous of which is the death of the dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous. The current popular theory is that an asteroid slammed into earth, causing the death of all the dinosaurs, pterosaurs and marine reptiles in a geological instant (called the KPg boundary). Do viewers ever ponder the fact that many delicate animals lived right through this catastrophe as if nothing happened?Genomic evidence reveals a radiation of placental mammals uninterrupted by the KPg boundary (PNAS). The early placental mammals (a group that includes us humans) were believed to be rather small, perhaps badger size, at the time of the extinction. They were no match for T Rex and Triceratops. Why, then, did they survive “uninterrupted” right through the disastrous extinction event? This group of evolutionary scientists, using different assumptions for dating ‘divergence times’ (when mammal groups supposedly branched into different families), believes that’s exactly what happened.We produced a genome-scale dataset from representatives of all placental mammal orders to infer diversification timing relative to the Cretaceous–Paleogene (KPg) boundary. Our sensitivity analyses show that divergence time estimates within placentals are considerably biased by the specific way in which a given dataset is processed. We examined the performance of various dating approaches using a comprehensive scheme of likelihood analyses and computational simulations, allowing us to identify the optimal molecular clock parameters, gene sets, and gene partitioning schemes for reliable dating. Based on the optimal methodology, we present a hypothesis of mammalian divergence timing that is more consistent with the fossil record than previous molecular clock reconstructions, suggesting that placental mammals underwent a continuous radiation across the KPg boundary.Creationists would say that the techniques are circular, because they assume evolution to prove evolution. What’s interesting is that to believe the evolutionary story, you have to believe that furry mammals lived through a global catastrophe as if nothing happened.Speaking of this PNAS paper, John Gatesy and Mark Springer took strong issue with the team’s phylogenetic methods in a letter to PNAS the following week, complaining about “homology errors and zombie lineages” in the analysis. In their reply, Liu et al. defended their work. This interchange reveals the high degree of subjectivity in the sausage-making business of piecing together animals into ancestral trees. Apparently, “zombie lineages” are just fine if they keep the tree standing:Gatesy and Springer are concerned that “zombie lineages” compromise our conclusions. We acknowledged zombie lineages as a reasonable concern and discussed such discrepancies and their likely causes at some length in our study. At the same time, our analysis is an advance because many more fossil and molecular divergences, particularly ordinal divergences, are now better reconciled. Hard bounds on priors can work but are also more likely to mislead than the soft bounds we used. Even sophisticated approaches can misestimate divergences in some cases, while uncertainties in the phylogenetic placement and dating of fossils may often yield false assumptions about fossil ages used for calibration. Geese-like birds seem to have survived the dinosaur extinction (New Scientist). Jeff Hecht acts surprised that birds like ducks, geese and chickens lived right through the dinosaur-killing event. Hecht introduces a little disagreement between evolutionists about the dating and phylogeny, but in the end, quotes German researcher Gerald Mayr, who thinks “most of the known modern-looking birds from the late Cretaceous were aquatic, so Mayr says the ancestors of today’s birds may have been at least semi-aquatic.” So how, exactly, did waterfowl live through a global extinction event that wiped out all marine reptiles around the world? Many evolutionists ignore this conundrum, arguing that the extinction of the dinosaurs paved the way for more diversification of mammals and birds. A picture of loons graces the opening of Hecht’s article, suggesting a certain cartoon title.One trick is to claim that birds are the living descendants of dinosaurs, as Science Daily claims. Even if one believes that, it still doesn’t explain why the smaller, more delicate birds survived while dinosaurs of all sizes all vanished. This particular article commits another theory rescue strategy, to reconcile the “rocks and clocks” debate. There’s been a long-standing discordance for evolutionists between molecular clock dates and fossil dates. The solution? “by speeding up avian genetic evolution, the K-Pg mass extinction may have temporarily altered the rate of the avian molecular clock.” The jargon term for this ad-hoc rescue device is “rate heterogeneity.” In plain English, it means factoring with fudge (see also, Darwin Flubber). A third fudging strategy is the old Sidestepping trick. The reporter pivots to talk about conservation of today’s large mammals, as if we humans could stop an asteroid.Toxic algae may be culprit in mysterious dinosaur deaths (Science Magazine). A jam-packed bone bed in Madagascar is generating another conundrum for evolutionists. In an area one third the size of a tennis court, 1,200 bones have been recovered. Carolyn Gramling writes,Seventy million years ago, they all came to drink in the rapidly drying river: long-necked sauropods, fierce theropods, crocodiles, lizards, and raven-sized birds. They never left. The giant and the tiny were entombed together in the riverbed, forming what is now a spectacular series of mass graves in northwestern Madagascar. Last week, researchers proposed a culprit behind this ancient mystery: harmful algal blooms (HABs), in the very water that had lured the animals.No evidence of algae has been found, though. Obviously, they are struggling to find answers for what killed so many animals so fast. One chunk “is the most fossiliferous package of rock I’ve ever seen,” said Raymond Rogers, a geologist from St. Paul. Many of the dinosaurs were found in the “dinosaur death pose” with head arched back, indicating suffocation, as with drowning.New research proves that birds and flying reptiles were friends, not foes (Phys.org). Contrary to evolutionary expectations of a ‘struggle for existence’ between airborne vertebrates in the Cretaceous, this article suggests that birds and pterosaurs got along just fine. Why, then, did the birds luck out in an event that wiped out all the flying reptiles? This article gingerly tiptoes past Darwin to avoid upsetting his stomach.New Macquarie University research, published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, has shown that birds and pterosaurs did, in fact, co-exist for millions of years peacefully, as opposed to the long-held and historical belief that birds competitively-displaced pterosaurs as suggested.It had previously been suggested that birds and pterosaurs competed with each other during the Cretaceous, a period more than 65 million years ago, and that this led to pterosaurs evolving larger body sizes to avoid competition with the smaller birds. However, after comparing jaw sizes, limb proportions and other functional characteristics not explored in previous studies, lead author Dr Nicholas Chan says this is not the case.The mass extinction that might never have happened (New Scientist). Do evolutionists really understand the history of life on earth? Colin Barras reports that one of the five major extinctions touted in museums and on TV may be a myth.Should the “big five” really be the “big four”? For decades, we [who’s “we,” paleface?] have recognised five devastating mass extinctions that punctuate the last half-billion years of evolution. But now two geologists are controversially arguing that the end-Triassic extinction – often described as the third largest – has no place on that list.“Certainly there was an environmental crisis, but it’s not a mass extinction per se,” says Lawrence Tanner at Le Moyne College at Syracuse, New York. “It’s misleading to continue to call it one.” If he is correct, our understanding of the early evolution of dinosaurs will need rewriting. [who’s we, paleface?]It’s worth mentioning that butterflies and many small insects came through the dinosaur extinction event just fine, as well as fish, petunias and most plants.If anyone still trusts evolutionary stories about natural history, maybe they could leave a comment justifying it.(Visited 541 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
Fossils do not tell a Darwinian story unless they are forced into his narrative.DinosaursJurassic dinosaurs trotted between Africa and Europe (Phys.org). People probably hadn’t thought that T. rex had to be a long-distance swimmer. How, then, did tracks of tyrannosaur-like dinosaurs get across oceans? Darwin, we have a problem! Similar dinosaur tracks have been found on two moyboy paleo-continents named Gondwana and Laurasia. This should not be. In order to rescue dinosaurs for Darwin, Spanish evolutionists got creative with their storytelling (evidence not required), adding some futureware and vaporware.To confirm these data, the group of researchers stresses that more studies are needed, especially to answer an important question: how did the dinosaurs pass between Laurasia and Gondwana? “The answer is problematic because geological studies indicate that there was a deep sea between the two continents,” stresses the scientist.The presence of the same species in such distant places forces scientists to propose dispersal routes between continents during the Mesozoic, the time during which dinosaurs lived. These large animals were thus able to move between Africa and Europe on land masses with short emersion periods and through southern Italy and the Balkans or through Iberia (what is nowadays the Iberian Peninsula).In this case, selection pressure is acting on the evolutionists, forcing them to evolve more fantastic stories.How life blossomed after the dinosaurs died (Science). Once upon a time, a very finely-tuned asteroid wiped out the dinosaurs but saved the butterflies. That’s the common Darwinian tale. In order to keep the scenario intact, Elizabeth Pennisi allows Darwinians to shove things around. She finds a group of storytellers in Corral Bluffs, Colorado, using divination techniques on fossil skulls inside a concretion. It takes several tries to perceive the vision. They return, studying 6,000 leaves and numerous bones of small animals. What they conclude from their divination exercise can only mean one thing: that Darwinism went on a high-speed burst of creation after the asteroid hit.Plants and animals came back much faster than thought, with plants spurring mammals to diversify, the team reports online in Science this week. “They get almost the whole picture, which is quite exciting,” says functional anatomist Amy Chew of Brown University. “This high-resolution integrated record really tells us what’s going on.”It doesn’t take much to excite Darwinists. Even falsification can do it, because they love the challenge of rescuing Darwin from evidence.Shoving pieces of pollen and volcanic dust into their predetermined slots on the geologic column, Ian Miller and Tyler Lyson invent a “palm period,” a “pecan pie” period and a “protein bar period” on their chart to get their colleagues’ mouths watering before lunch. They grin, feeling they have fostered a coherent evolutionary scenario on the listener, provided they are allowed to turn up the evolutionary supercharger and play with the temperature dial at will. After lunch, the guests enjoy the sermon on climate change.At New Scientist, Ruby Prosser Scully swallows the protein bar in one gulp without checking the label:This growth spurt coincided with the appearance of the first legume – which Lyson calls the “protein bar moment” – since it probably provided the calories needed to drive this rapid growth.When the researchers looked back through the climate record, they found that these three bursts of mammal evolution seem to coincide with temperature increases of about 5°C. This suggests that the rise of mammals was helped along by a more tropical climate that enhanced plant growth and hence increased the food supply for animals, says Lyson….Having such a detailed picture of the way ecosystems recovered after the last extinction event may help us predict what will happen following the sixth mass extinction, which some experts believe is happening now as a result of rapid climate change, says Gregory Webb at the University of Queensland, Australia.MammalsMammals’ complex spines are linked to high metabolisms; we’re learning how they evolved (Phys.org). Vertebral spines are common on many fossil mammals. The question is not whether they evolved, but how they evolved, because as Phillip Johnson had shown, evolution is predetermined as the only explanation they will accept. From that premise, evolutionists feel free to shove fossils into the miracle column.Mammals’ backbones are weird. Compared to other four-legged animals like reptiles, mammal spines are a complex mix of sections of differently-shaped bones. Our Frankenstein’s monster backbones are a key component of mammals evolving the ability to move in a bunch of different ways—compare a cheetah running, a person walking, a bat flying, and a whale swimming.It’s a bunch, all right (what teenage Darwin convert wrote this? Frankenstein, really?). Well, however the backbones evolved, it “was marked by big, dramatic evolutionary changes,” the young disciple writes. Those chance mutations must have come in a burst of cosmic rays, pregnant with evolutionary gemmules. Mammals received these gifts cheerfully, spending them on high metabolisms as well as monster backbones. Stephanie Pierce of Harvard feels free to pile on the miracles: “and some changes in in backbone complexity evolved at about the same time that other features associated with a more active lifestyle evolved, like fur or specialized muscles for breathing.”To impress readers, the divination experts show how it all works out on their computer program. The miracles occur in “quick bursts, rather than a super-slow, gradual pathway,” they say. If this sounds confusing, it’s because evolutionary divination is only clear to the wizards who have had the proper training.“This study helps us answer an age-old question—how did life become so complex?” says Jones. By looking at this example system, we show that discreet changes, when added up over the millennia, can produce what seems at first glance to be a long-term trend. The evolution of complexity is, dare I say it, complex!”Everything looks nice and neat on the Darwin timeline because the fossils were shoved there.One of the reasons that Inquisitors in the 16th century banned Bibles in the common language was to avoid confusing the peasants with the contradictions between what the Bible said and what they saw the priesthood doing and teaching. Only the experts, they warned, were able to read the Scriptures correctly and without confusion. Will a day come when modern Darwinists will ban the reading of Origin of Species for similar reasons? It goes to show that details like the rate of evolution (slow and gradual vs punctuated or rapid) are far less important than maintaining the foundation of naturalism.(Visited 422 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享2
