They have lost only two games this season, equal lowest in the Barclays Premier League with Leicester. They have also conceded only 15 goals, the fewest in the division.Everton, meanwhile, have dropped to 11th following two defeats in their last three games, including Monday’s dramatic 4-3 reverse against Stoke City. At Goodison Park, Everton have won just three, yet they have also scored 22 home goals, the most in the division.Spurs will hope that Erik Lamela maintains his good record; the Argentine has scored four goals in his past five games in all competitions for Tottenham. And team-mate Harry Kane scored 29 goals in 2015.Everton’s Romelu Lukaku is enjoying an equally rich vein of form; he has 18 goals in all competitions so far and has 11 in his last 10 games, scoring in nine.And while there are proven goalscorers involved, a draw is the favoured result given the history of this fixture. In 23 previous Goodison Park clashes, no fewer than 10 have been drawn (including five at 0-0).Tottenham have won on eight occasions including last season – when Kane got the winner.But when they met at White Hart Lane in August it finished 0-0, with Spurs extended their unbeaten run against Everton home and away to six games.Everton give tests to Tom Cleverley, James McCarthy and Phil Jagielka while Tottenham have a doubt over Moussa Dembele.last_img read more

Geological Dates Collapse

first_imgTwo papers in Geology this month cast serious doubt on assumptions used to date rocks.Hundreds, Not Hundreds of ThousandsA “giant ore deposit” in Hungary thought to require hundreds of thousands of years of slow, gradual deposition to form has been re-examined.  Conclusion: it formed in just hundreds of years due to the action of microbes.  The abstract posted today in the journal Geology says it all:The Úrkút (Hungary) manganese (Mn) ore, hosted by Jurassic black shale, was studied using high-resolution mineralogical, microtextural, and chemical methods. Two independent superimposed biostructures were identified consisting of rhythmic laminations that provide important proxies for paleoenvironments and duration of ore formation. Millimeter-scale laminae reflect a depositional series of Fe-rich biomats, mineralized microbially produced sedimentary structures. These biomats formed at the sediment-water interface under dysoxic and neutral pH conditions by enzymatic Fe2+ oxidizing processes that may have developed on a daily to weekly growth cycle. The early diagenetic sedimentary ore is composed of Ca rhodochrosite, celadonite, and smectite, and also shows a 100-μm-scale element oscillation that produces Mn(Ca)-rich and Si(Fe clay)-rich microlaminae. This microlamination may reflect a 10 h to daily rhythmicity produced by the growth of microbial communities. If true, then the giant Úrkút ore deposit may have formed over hundreds of years, rather than hundreds of thousands of years as previously thought.Source: Polgári et al., Microbial action formed Jurassic Mn-carbonate ore deposit in only a few hundred years (Úrkút, Hungary), Geology, 10.1130/G33304.1 v. 40 no. 10 p. 903-906 .Cosmogenic Clock ResetA dating method that relies on constant bombardment by cosmic rays has new troubles.  Geologists had thought that cosmogenic radiation damage in the rocks accumulated at a steady rate.  They overlooked the scrambling of data due to debris flows, reports a Swiss team.  In Geology, the abstract of their paper, “Debris-flow–dependent variation of cosmogenically derived catchment-wide denudation rates” explains the problem:Catchment-wide denudation rates (CWDRs) obtained from cosmogenic nuclides are an efficient way to determine geomorphic processes quantitatively in alpine mountain ranges over Holocene time scales. These rate estimations assume steady geomorphic processes. Here we use a time series (3 yr) in the Aare catchment (central Swiss Alps) to test the impact of spatially heterogeneous stochastic sediment supply on CWDRs. Our results show that low-frequency, high-magnitude debris-flow events significantly perturb cosmogenic nuclide (10Be, 14C) concentrations and thus CWDRs. The 10Be concentrations decrease by a factor of two following debris-flow events, resulting in a doubling of inferred CWDRs. The variability indicates a clear time and source dependency on sediment supply, with restricted area-weighted mixing of sediment. Accordingly, in transient environments, it is critical to have an understanding of the history of geomorphic processes to derive meaningful CWDRs. We hypothesize that the size of debris flows, their connectivity with the trunk stream, and the ability of the system to sufficiently mix sediment from low- and high-order catchments control the magnitude of CWDR perturbations. We also determined in situ 14C in a few samples. In conjunction with 10Be, these data suggest partial storage for colluvium of a few thousand years within the catchment prior to debris-flow initiation.Source: Kober et al., Debris-flow–dependent variation of cosmogenically derived catchment-wide denudation rates, Geology, doi: 10.1130/G33406.1 v. 40 no. 10 p. 935-938.Most of us learn the lesson, “never assume,” the hard way.  Both dating methods assumed simple, uniform, slow-and-gradual processes produced these deposits.  In one case, errors were found at least 3 orders of magnitude, leading to the conclusion that a giant ore deposit took only a few hundred years to form, not hundreds of thousands of years.  In the second case, assumption of “steady geomorphic processes” was exaggerated by a factor of two or more.None of this is to allege that these geologists have changed their minds about the standard evolutionary billions-of-years timeline.  The first authors, for instance, believe the quick deposition of the ore occurred in the Jurassic, over 100 million years ago.  The second authors are only cautioning about calculating dates with steady-state assumptions.  The lesson here concerns philosophy of science: measurements by fallible humans who weren’t there and don’t know all the factors can produce erroneous conclusions that become ensconced in textbooks as The Truth About the World.  No; the second paper states: “it is critical to have an understanding of the history of geomorphic processes to derive meaningful” rates.  But there’s the rub; is this possible?  What human being is capable of gaining “an understanding of the history of geomorphic processes” for any location, when he or she was not there to watch?  There could always be some other geomorphic (landscape-forming) process that was not considered, such as the debris flows discussed here.  What else will be suggested in future studies?  Can anybody except an Eyewitness ever claim that, yes, “now we know” ALL the processes that contributed to a given landscape?  The question answers itself.

SA govt, media to improve relations

first_img Source: BuaNews 18 October 2010 The government and senior editors of South Africa’s major newspapers have agreed to take steps to improve relations between the authorities and the press in the country, with both parties agreeing on the need for a “vibrant, diverse and critical” media sector to safeguard South Africa’s democracy. A government delegation led by Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe and the South African National Editors Forum (Sanef) held a robust two-day meeting in Magaliesburg, North West on the weekend to discuss issues affecting the two parties – including the proposal for a media appeals tribunal. The last time the government met with Sanef was in 2001, when relations between the two hit an all-time low.Controvery over media tribunal proposal Tensions re-emerged in recent months following proposals by the ruling African National Congress (ANC) to establish a media tribunal in addition to the media’s self-regulation system. Many in the media have expressed concerns over the proposal, citing threats to freedom of the press. Government spokesperson Themba Maseko, speaking after the weekend’s meeting, said the parties had agreed on the need for a “vibrant, diverse and critical” media sector to safeguard South Africa’s constitutional democracy. “Sanef expressed concerns about the developments it views as threatening media freedom in the country … Government raised its concerns that it was at times vilified and treated unfairly by the media,” Maseko said. The government also raised issues around the diversity of media ownership, the quality and integrity of reporting, as well as the need for dissemination of information in a way that would help the country move forward. The ministers argued that the media’s self-regulatory mechanism failed to address issues such as reckless and inaccurate reporting. Sanef is currently reviewing the press ombudsman system in an attempt to make it more effective.Communication versus ‘gatekeeping’ Motlanthe said the Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) would be tasked with organising regular training sessions for communicators to enable them to deal with journalists better. This was after Sanef chairperson Mondli Makhanya expressed concerns that government communicators often acted like “gatekeepers” instead of releasing information to the public. “To us this is really serious, because we cannot allow a situation where people become gatekeepers whereas they are supposed to disseminate information,” Makhanya said. Speaking before the meeting, Makhanya said that the media would continue to fulfill its role as “watchdogs” while engaging in robust debate about what was best for South Africa. “We must accept that there will be differences, we will have tensions now and then, but that does not [have to] lead to hostility,” he said.Constitution the reference point It was agreed that similar meetings should to be held on an annual basis to deal with such challenges, which should be addressed with the understanding that South Africa’s fledgling democracy was in its formative stages. “The meeting agreed that the Constitution remains the central reference point and guiding principle of both the mandate of government and the role of the media, and that the legitimacy of both institutions remains firmly entrenched,” Maseko said. The government and the media shared interdependency within the Constitutional framework, and mutually acceptable norms would serve to strengthen the delivery of information to the public. Motlanthe said the government remained “fully committed” to the Constitution, and that it had no intention of doing anything that might undermine freedom of expression or the freedom of the media to function effectively. Motlanthe said discussions over the proposed media tribunal would continue until a “consensus” was reached by all role players. “We have undertaken to implement all that has been agreed on, and we will continue to engage on some issues with the hope that we may be able to find each other,” he said.last_img read more

DOD’s Demographics Reports: What Public Documents and Data Can Tell Us | Part 2

first_imgThis MFLN-Military Caregiving concentration blog post was published on March 30, 2018. Written by: Christopher Plein, Ph.D. West Virginia University and MFLN Caregiving Team MemberLast month we focused on the wealth of information found in data and reports made publicly available by the Department of Defense.  We discussed how the 2016 Demographics Report provides both general information as well as more specific details that might be of use to those working with military families.  In this blog, we consider some of the information that DOD provides to Congress on an annual basis.  These reports help to shed light on priorities and efforts that have been made in such areas as family readiness and support.What Can We Learn from the DoD’s Annual Report?One very helpful resource is the DOD’s Annual Report to the Congressional Committees on the Department of Defense Policy and Plans for Military Family Readiness.  With such a long title, we’ll call it the Family Readiness report for short. A wide range of topics are covered, touching on many of the topics that we explore and share in the Military Families Learning Network.  This includes such topics as child care, education, personal finance, and individual and family life.  A review of recent reports reveals some following facts and figures:In 2016, there were about 1.1 million kids in active duty military families ranging from newborns all the way up to 22 years of age (page 3). About 75 percent of these kids were under the age of 12 (page 3). Contrary to popular perception, most families do not live on military installations. In 2014, almost 3 out of 4 families lived “outside the gate” (page 4).Just by taking these three pieces of information together, we gain a better understanding of some of the priorities in connecting families to resources and challenges in taking into account access to resources.  Those interested and engaged in family support functions are able to gain a clearer picture of how families might be dispersed across communities and that access and availability to services may vary by location.  This also helps us to understand the DOD’s priorities, outlined in the 2016 Family Readiness report, in forging links to community-based organizations and in providing more online reference and support services.The DOD recognizes the importance of providing support to families with special needs in terms of health care and/or educational accommodation.  Each year, the DOD’s Office of Special Needs (OSN) issues its Annual Report to the Congressional Defense Committees on the Activities of the Office of Special Needs.  We’ll call this the OSN Report for short and it provides important insights on trends and actions.Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) Trends:In these reports, you will learn about trends and developments with the Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP).  Each service branch operates an EFMP with the OSN providing support and promoting the development of standardized and best practices across the branches.  The most recent OSN report notes that there are now about 120,000 EFMP family members across the services.  Recent reports illustrate the attention that is being given to various EFMP functions.  One area of emphasis is in family support.  This includes non-clinical case management for families and the development of tools to better coordinate access to care and services. We also learn that families have voice in OSN efforts through the DOD Advisory Panel on Community Support for Families with Special Needs.Knowledge is Crucial in Helping Us Understand and PlanThese and other reports offered by DOD are helpful resources providing data and facts – as well as explanatory context. I always tell my students “go to the source.”  The relative ease in accessing these documents online makes this an easy journey.last_img read more

Modi hits out at Congress over Sam Pitroda’s remarks on anti-Sikh riots

first_imgPrime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday evoked the 1984 anti-Sikh riots in Haryana’s Rohtak to target the Congress party in the backdrop of Sam Pitroda’s remarks over the riots.Hitting out at Congress leader Sam Pitroda over his Hua to Hua (whatever happened has happened) remark with regard to the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, Mr. Modi said “The three words from the Congress leader — ‘hua to hua’ over 1984 anti-Sikh riots reflects the character, mindset and arrogance of the Congress party.”Prime Minister was addressing a BJP’s ‘Vijay Sankalp’ rally in Rohtak.Mr. Modi said: “This leader (Sam Pitroda) is close to the Gandhi family… he is their confidant… he is the ‘Guru’ of the ‘naamdaar’ president of the party. Several Sikh families were killed during 1984 riots. In Delhi alone over 2,800 Sikhs were killed – but for Congress leaders it’s only ‘Hua To Hua’.”Mr. Modi, said people will never forgive the Congress party for its arrogance and would teach a lesson to Congress, which due to its anti-people approach has already been reduced to 44 seats in the Lok Sabha.Mr. Modi said that when the Samjhauta Express blast took place near Panipat, the Congress targeted and harassed innocent people in the name of Hindu terrorism, but later their conspiracy was exposed.‘Congress failed in securing nation’s security’Mr. Modi also took a dig at the Congress on national security and corruption issues, saying the grand old party has such a poor history that it can not boast anything when it comes to nation’s security and defence.“BJP government made a strong defence policy for the country whereas the Congress, which remained in power for seven decades kept silent on defence policy for the country. Before 2014, day in and day out Pakistan did brutality with our soldiers and the Congress government at the Centre restricted itself to only giving statements. But the strong government that you brought to power gave strength to the brave soilders and we gave them a free hand to tackle the situation on the spot,” he said.The Prime Minister again launched a veiled attack against former Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra and former Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, saying Congress leaders involved in corruption have been taken to the court and would be put in jail within the next five years.last_img read more

What that injury did do, regardless of whether he played that game, was meant he had a broken pre-season.”It’s a slight domino effect. The main injury is now feeling good, but he’s probably got a couple of niggles since that, and a tackle at Manchester United in the first game that affected him on the ankle.”There’s a bit of bad luck in there as well. Everyone is working towards getting him regularly fit so he can play continuous games, and I’m hoping that’s coming really soon.” last_img read more
