STUNNING MARK WALSH GOAL ENSURES ROSSES CS WIN THRILLING CP O’DONNELL MEMORIAL CUP FINAL

first_imgIn a fitting tribute to the late, great CP O’Donnell, a sensational cup final produced a five-goal cracker and the winner came courtesy of a sublime solo-effort from Mark Walsh which clinched  glory for Rosses CS.The first-year competition was named in memory of CP O’Donnell known locally as Paddy Murray. He led many Rosses CS soccer sides to glory over the years including an historic All-Ireland win in 1982.So it was written in the stars that Enda Walsh’s men would come out on top in the first year the competition which was re-named after the much revered and sorely missed Paddy Murray.The game itself was a cracker and Rosses CS flew out of the traps and didn’t let St Eunan’s settle.Michael McFadden pounced on an error by the Eunan’s net minder and fired RCS ahead after fifteen minutes. St Eunan’s responded well and equalised through the lively Dylan Doogan with ten minutes of the second-half remaining.However, RCS would regain the lead again thanks to the brilliant McFadden who showed superb footwork before unleashing a rasping effort that nestled in the bottom corner.Eunan’s refused to lie down and produced a sustained and spirited performance and deserved their equaliser when it came through Doogan again with just FIVE minutes left.However, there would be another late twist, the outstanding Mark Walsh picked up the ball inside his own half and embarked on a mazy solo run.He went past five or six players before slotting home expertly to give RCS the CP O’Donnell cup.The large crown in attendance were absolutely delighted and Paddy Murray would’ve been looking down on Maghery with a big smile on his face. Paddy’s son Mel O’Donnell presented the cup to winning captain Azeem Madden.Well done to both sides for a great final.STUNNING MARK WALSH GOAL ENSURES ROSSES CS WIN THRILLING CP O’DONNELL MEMORIAL CUP FINAL was last modified: May 22nd, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:CP O’DonnellnewsRosses CSsoccerSportSt Eunanslast_img read more

Big Science Supports Death

first_img(Visited 43 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 If it’s evil, if it’s immoral, if it’s anti-religious, chances are Big Science and Big Media will be all for it.Since our last reports on science’s ethics, “Evolutionary Materialism Promotes Deadly Sins” (2/12/17), and “Why Is Big Science Pro-Death?” (2/06/17) more evidence has come in to show that Big Science (institutional science, academia, science journal editors) and Big Media (secular evolution-trusting journalists) are willing to fight traditional morality at every opportunity. For instance, why should any scientist be pro-abortion? Why are scientists and secular reporters constantly attacking even common-sense restrictions on the deadly practice?AbortionFDA urged to let abortion pill be sold at pharmacies (David Crary, Medical Xpress). Urged by whom? “a group of doctors and public health experts urging an end to tough federal restrictions on the drug.” Does Crary look for other groups of doctors and public health experts who take the opposite view? Well, sort of. They get one paragraph in the story, but it is quickly refuted by his preferred authorities.France adopts law against misleading anti-abortion websites (Medical Xpress). France’s outright punishment of the pro-life movement is given positive coverage in this article. [Note: Medical Xpress is an amalgamator of academic press releases about medical subjects, but by publishing these articles and not pro-life articles, they are accessories to the bias.]Utah’s anesthesia abortion law unenforced (Medical Xpress). A crowd of pro-Planned Parenthood protestors with pink signs leads off this article, trying to make the case that pro-life legislators can pass all the laws they want, but doctors won’t obey them. They quote one who says, “is, in my opinion, a waste of our money and our time by someone who is trying to make a political statement and really not worried about what’s best medically or what’s best for people’s health.” People’s health? What about the baby?Dutch ‘abortion ship’ due in Guatemala (Medical Xpress). Mean old Guatemala: they enacted strict abortion laws. Good old Netherlands: they sent a ship that “can provide women with free legal medical abortions till 10 weeks of pregnancy after sailing to international waters, 12 miles outside Guatemala.” This article also describes abortion pills as “very safe and effective.”Montana abortion bill would make doctors try to save fetus (Medical Xpress). Horrors! Trying to save the baby after 24 weeks when it could be viable! Who gets the good press? “Critics of the bill said it could be among the most extreme anti-abortion laws in the nation, even as other states consider their own proposals that would reduce the window for legal abortions.” Extreme – invasive – unconstitutional: you get the reporter’s drift.Other Moral IssuesSame-Sex Marriage May Reduce Teen Suicide Attempts (Live Science). Look at the positive side of this unpopular new right that the US Supreme Court, by the narrowest of margins, pushed on the country in 2015. It might save a few teens from committing suicide according to a ‘study’. “The new study did not examine the reasons behind this link, but the researchers think that the same-sex marriage policies might have helped to reduce the perception of stigma among teens who identify as sexual minorities,” one researcher said. So was this the contributing factor to teen suicides before 2015? Did anyone think of other ways to reduce teen suicide other than to force gay marriage on the whole country, resulting in gentle florists losing everything they own? (true story; see FRC and ADF). Isn’t that a kind of Guth Goof? What about the stigma and loss Barronelle Stutzman is feeling right now?Live Science Book Giveaway: ‘Cannibalism’ by Bill Schutt (Live Science). How thoughtful of “live science” to offer a free book to readers that rationalizes cannibalism. “Schutt serves up a tempting menu of evidence” [gross!] “that reveals cannibalism — yes, even in human societies — to be more widespread and ‘perfectly natural’ than previously suspected.” Suspected by whom? It’s surprising that Mindy Weisgerber didn’t quip, “You are what you eat.” She almost makes our satire on cannibal rights look trendy.Attitudes, perceptions and knowledge among men who have sex with men towards the blood donation deferral policy in Israel (PLoS One). Disallowing gay men from giving blood because they might carry HIV makes them feel discriminated against. We don’t want to hurt their feelings. Solution: make the deferral temporary. That way we can put everybody needing a blood transfusion at risk of carrying this deadly disease. This is known as science.Do you see why prayer for our country is urgently needed? With your praying, speak out. The lunatics have taken over the science lab, corrupted by Darwinian denial of human exceptionalism (see Ch. 18 of Tom Bethell’s new book, Darwin’s House of Cards).last_img read more

Saturn’s Ring Moons Collect Ring Dust

first_imgHow long have these little moons been gathering ring dust on their equators?Scientists continue rummaging through more than 635 gigabytes of data collected by the Cassini spacecraft during its 13-year mission at Saturn. Recently, they processed detailed images of the innermost “ring moons” of Saturn, some of them which orbit within gaps inside the rings. The close-up photos were taken during the “Grand Finale” part of the second extended mission, which afforded close fly-bys.Strangely, these moons resemble little models of Saturn itself. For a long time, they have attracted ring particles to their equators, giving them a Saturn-like shape. What does this imply about the ages of the rings and moons? Here’s what the JPL press release says from March 28:Scientists also found the moon surfaces to be highly porous, further confirming that they were formed in multiple stages as ring material settled onto denser cores that might be remnants of a larger object that broke apart. The porosity also helps explain their shape: Rather than being spherical, they are blobby and ravioli-like, with material stuck around their equators.“We found these moons are scooping up particles of ice and dust from the rings to form the little skirts around their equators,” Buratti said. “A denser body would be more ball-shaped because gravity would pull the material in.”“Perhaps this process is going on throughout the rings, and the largest ring particles are also accreting ring material around them. Detailed views of these tiny ring moons may tell us more about the behavior of the ring particles themselves,” said Cassini Project Scientist Linda Spilker, also at JPL.Of the satellites studied, the surfaces of those closest to Saturn – Daphnis and Pan – are the most altered by ring materials. The surfaces of the moons Atlas, Prometheus and Pandora, farther out from Saturn, have ring material as well – but they’re also coated with the bright icy particles and water vapor from the plume spraying out of Enceladus.The article on Phys.org contains the most convenient access to images of these odd moons with their “skirts” of accumulated ring particles, reproduced from the paper in Science. As for the ring particle collection, it could be a reversible process: material collects but also erodes in a steady state. The material from Enceladus, however, must be one way. There is no way for these tiny moons to “return to sender” any icy material they swept up from the E-ring. Space.com explains how coloration aided the conclusion:The scientists found that the appearance of these ring moons depended on their position with respect to the rings, with Pan the reddest and closest in of these moons and Epimetheus the bluest and farthest out. This suggested that the moons’ appearance depended on two competing factors, the researchers said: contamination by a red material from the main rings, which could consist of a mix of iron and organic compounds, and showers of ice particles or water vapor from volcanic plumes originating on Saturn’s moon Enceladus.A new paper in Icarus shows that tweaking a model with the parameters of shell thickness can keep the internal heating in a “steady state,” but the model makes the heat escape greater than that of the plumes. Even if scientists were able to keep the interior fluid, it would remain a huge challenge to explain the little Iowa-diameter moon pumping out material for billions of years – enough to coat the little ring moons and create an entire ring (the E-ring) around Saturn.The Cassini scientists do superb work of collection and analysis of data, but there’s something strange about their writings. They seem very reluctant to consider the implications: that the Saturn system, including the rings and moons, must be young.Diagram of Saturn’s E-ring created by Enceladus(Visited 446 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

The Geocaching Vlogger — Interview

first_imgIf you’ve ever gone down a geocaching rabbit hole on YouTube, you likely came across Joshua Johnson, better known as The Geocaching Vlogger. His charisma and enthusiasm towards geocaching can be contagious on film. He’s quirky, funny, relatable, and expressive. While most of us are excited internally when we find a cool cache, Joshua’s extroverted enthusiasm expresses what we all feel but don’t always show. Share with your Friends:More Joshua began caching 10 years ago when some friends mentioned the game to him in passing. He purchased a Garmin eTrex GPS device and tested it out on a geocache across the street and thought to himself, “I drive by here everyday and never knew this existed! It was like a whole new world was opened up to me, and I have been hooked ever since.” A few years later, Joshua purchased his first Flip camera, recorded a geocaching adventure, posted it online, and never looked back. From 2011–2018 he has not missed a week of uploading at least one entertaining video of unique and awe-inspiring geocaches. Since there are so many cool hides in the archives of his YouTube channel, we wanted to ask him what makes a quality geocache and what words of inspiration he has for future cache hiders to make caches worthy enough for the big-screen — among a few other questions.Where did you grow up? I grew up in a small town in southern Minnesota. (Fairmont)What were your hobbies and interests back then?I have always been a performer. I took to the stage from a very young age. I was involved in a lot of theater. It wouldn’t have been strange if you saw me in my youth impersonating Elvis Presley or Jerry Lee Lewis. Did you ever think creating video content was going to be a part of your life?Not really. I was very involved in video production when I was in high school. We had free reign of the local TV studio. It was almost eight years ago that I decided to get a Flip camera to film my kids growing up that I decided to start shooting video. The day I got it I tested it out by filming a geocaching adventure and putting it up on YouTube. Who knew that many years later I have never missed a week putting out a geocaching video.Do you have a career outside of Vlogging?Yes, I work for a non-profit that involves me speaking to young people in schools about the importance of kindness, courage, and respect. The cool thing is that it gives me a chance to travel which means new geocaches all the time! Do you ever find it difficult to find content?Not really. The great thing about geocaching is it often takes you to new amazing places, amazing creative caches, or allows you to meet fascinating people. Those are the three main ingredients for a great video and geocaching adventure!In your opinion, what makes a geocache stand out to you?Again, a creative geocache, an awesome unique location, and being with great people. If all three of those are present, it makes it stand out as an amazing experience. Top 5 favorite caches and why (in no particular order)“The Doctor is In!” – GC6YDR6In my opinion this might be the best geocache in America. It is a Dr. Who Tardis smart cache that is truly an amazing interactive experience.“Sliding Rock Earthcache” – GC17869  I love geocaches that are an amazing experience. The cache involved the full of sliding down a long natural rock waterslide! So much fun!“The Hannover Germany Geotour” – GT31 You can’t pick just one cache. EVERY…. SINGLE… CACHE… is awesome. The whole city of Hanover Germany is filled awesome caches. A geocachers dream for sure! Over 11,000 Favorite points, need I say more?“Mission 9: Tunnel of Light” – GC1169This would be on many people’s list. There is nothing like attending the Going Ape Mega Event walking through a two-mile tunnel to find an ammo can with hundreds of your best friends to get a famous ammo can! GC1169“My Fair Lady” – GC78W0MI have never laughed or been more surprised than at this ingenious geocache! There is even a Lab Cache on site!What does a quality geocache look like to you?Something that you know has taken hours of time and thought to create. A geocache that has all the elements of art, tech, and craftsmanship is what really makes a geocache great.If an aspiring cache hider is reading this, what advice would you give them? Especially if they wanted to make it onto your show?Think to yourself, what kind of geocache or series of geocaches would make someone buy a plane ticket to find it? That kind of dedication to the excellence makes me excited!You’re so expressive in your videos, what keeps you motivated, and how do you maintain that energy?I have passion for geocaching! The passion comes from the love of the activity. But it also comes from the countless stories I have heard from other geocachers that have watched my videos. When I have the opportunity to connect with viewers they have shared stories like how my videos have inspired them to get off the couch and start geocaching. I have had parents tell me that watch my videos with their kids before they go to bed and it motivates their whole family to go caching. I hear from others that say that the videos often are the bright spot in a difficult day. Stories like those motivate me to be positive and energetic when it comes to geocaching videos. Have you ever broken-down in laughter while recording?Yes, I once tried to explain the Jasmer Challenge on video and I just couldn’t get the right words out. When watching back the “bloopers” I laugh quite a bit at myself.What were some of your favorite episodes to record and why?The episodes that involve my kids and co-workers are my favorite. My co-workers are a very animated bunch and often make for entertaining videos. I love filming people finding their first caches. There is nothing like seeing that “Eureka!” moment for the first time. That never gets old.If you were a geocache type, what type would you be and why?Wherigo, because you never know where I’ll go next! 😉New to The Geocaching Vlogger?

Ravindra Jadeja not at fault, will challenge ICC’s fine: BCCI

first_imgRavindra JadejaThe Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Friday said that Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was not at fault and they support him fully. They plan to challenge the fine imposed by an ICC panel on the player for Level 1 breach of conduct in Trent Bridge Test. England player James Anderson’s hearing is coming up on August 1.Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been let off with just a 50 per cent match-fee fine after referee David Boon found the player not guilty of the original level 2 offence, which involved his on-field incident with England pacer James Anderson.The incident occurred during the lunch break of the second day’s play at Nottingham during which, Indians claim that Anderson had allegedly “abused” and “pushed” Jadeja as the players were making their way into the dressing rooms.The England team management, which had initially described it as a “minor” incident, later filed a countercharge against Jadeja.Boon held a hearing in Southampton on Thursday evening, which was attended by both the players, their legal counsels, witnesses as well as BCCI’s MV Sridhar, Phil Neale and Paul Downton of the ECB, and the ICC’s Ethics & Regulatory Lawyer.In the meeting that lasted for over two hours, former Australia batsman Boon said that the charges on Jadeja only found him guilty to ‘conduct contrary to the spirit of the game’.Commenting on his decision, Mr Boon said: “Under Article 6.1 of the Code, I had to be comfortably satisfied that the offence had occurred in order to find Jadeja guilty of an offence under Article 2.2.11.advertisement”While I was in no doubt that confrontation did occur, and that such conduct was not in the spirit of the game and should not have taken place, I was not comfortably satisfied that this was a level 2 offence. Therefore, in exercising my discretion under Article 7.6.5 of the Code and having heard all the evidence, I was comfortably satisfied that Jadeja had committed a level 1 offence under Article 2.1.8 of the Code.”The hearing for Anderson, who has been charged with a level 3 offence, has been fixed on August 1.The ICC-appointed Judicial Commissioner Gordon Lewis will be required to announce his decision within 48 hours after the detailed hearing August 1.Though decks have been cleared for Anderson’s participation at Rose Bowl but he might miss the fourth and fifth match starting August 7 if the investigation finds him guilty of pushing and abusing Jadeja as alleged by the Indians.Charged with a level 3 offence, Anderson faces a ban of upto two Tests and eight ODIs if found guilty.All Level 3 breaches carry a penalty of between four and eight Suspension Points while Level 2 offences carry a fine of between 50-100 per cent of applicable Match Fee and/or up to two Suspension Points.Two suspension points equates to a ban of one Test, or two ODIs, depending on which type of match is scheduled next for the suspended player.last_img read more

ICCs Anti-Corruption Unit GM YP Singh resigns

first_imgDubai, Dec 8 (PTI) International Cricket Councils Anti-Corruption Unit GM Yogendra Pal Singh better known as YP Singh has tendered his resignation. Along with Singh, ICCs Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for 12 years Faisal Hasnain also resigned. According to a media release by ICC, it states: “Hasnain decided last month to leave the organisation to pursue other interests and opportunities, while Singh resigned last week so that he can rejoin his family in India. Both the gentlemen will be finishing their time with the ICC early next year.” Hasnain was the ICCs CFO for 12 years (March 2002 to 2008, and then July 2010 until now), while Singh joined the ICC in June 2011. ICC Chief Executive David Richardson said:”The ICC is disappointed to lose two highly qualified, experienced and knowledgeable colleagues in Faisal Hasnain and YP Singh. The two gentlemen have been incredibly valued members of the senior management team and have made significant contributions to the ICCs overall growth and operations. On behalf of the ICC, I wish them well for the future and thank them for their years of dedication to the sport.” PTI KHS KHSlast_img read more
