Even with the Warriors adding (DeMarcus Cousins) and the Rockets being who they are, I think we fit right up there in the mix. It is early, obviously, and I’m not promising anything, but at the end of the day, I expect to win. Nothing else.”Rondo is a familiar figure to Lakers fans, and not necessarily in a good way. He played a major role for the Celtics when they met the Lakers in the NBA Finals, winning a ring with Boston in 2008 and losing to LA in 2010.

So it’s going to be exciting to be able to just get up, get a couple of easy looks, be able to push the pace in the open court.”The Lakers also announced the re-signing of guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who got a one-year deal worth $12 million to provide a perimeter shooting threat to an offense that could still use more outside shooters.The Lakers haven’t yet announced the acquisitions of James or veterans Lance Stephenson and JaVale McGee during a thorough makeover following the worst half-decade in franchise history. Seeing Rondo on the other side of that enduring NBA rivalry won’t be as weird to Rondo as it might be to some Lakers fans.“Does it feel strange? Um, no,” Rondo said. “My battles with the Lakers were over a decade ago, and none of the players I was battling with are on the same roster.”The 32-year-old Rondo expressed no concerns about playing with Ball, the precocious passer chosen by the Lakers with the second overall pick in last year’s draft. Ball will be sidelined for most of the summer with a torn meniscus in his left knee, but Rondo is eager to work on their chemistry in the fall.“I’m excited to get a player that age and try to help him as much as I can,” said Rondo, a starter for all but small portions of his first 12 NBA seasons spent with five franchises.Rondo sees the Lakers’ potential surplus of ball-handlers as an advantage. He isn’t worried about finding roles for everyone in coach Luke Walton’s up-tempo offense, which is designed to create plenty of offensive chances for every player.ADVERTISEMENTlast_img read more

AFC’s Odera dedicates award to late mother

PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 24- On March 2 as he sat quietly in the AFC Leopards team bus on their way to Awendo to face Sony Sugar, forward Ezekiel Odera received the most devastating news; his ailing mother had passed on.For anyone, that would be crushing news but for Odera, he took it bravely and when Ingwe played the sugar millers two days later, he hit the opening goal and played part in the second as AFC ran off 2-0 winners. “It was shocking to receive the news on the way and I didn’t tell anyone, even my teammates. After the match, that’s when I told them. I told myself that if my mum would have been alive, her wish would have been for me to play,” Odera explained.“I decided to continue playing since staying at home would have been harder emotionally because of all people coming to say sorry and all. I decided to soldier on for her,” the former KCB and Gor Mahia forward further stated.His decision to keep playing proved to be a masterstroke as he went on to score three other goals in the month of March and provided two assists, form that has seen him awarded as the Sports Journalists Association of Kenya (SJAK) player of the month for March.He is the first AFC Leopards player to win the award since its inception.AFC Leopards forward Ezekiel Odera is congratulated by teammates Robinson Kamura and Duncan Otieno after picking his March SJAK Player of the Month Award on April 24, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu“I dedicate this award to her (mother), my teammates and the coaches who helped me to stay strong in that time. It was a difficult period for me and the daily words from the coaches and mates helped me through it,” Odera noted.The 30-year old won the coveted gong ahead of Mathare United’s Cliff Nyakeya and Elvis Rupia of Nzoia Sugar who equally performed well in March, garnering eleven votes to Nyakeya’s seven while Rupia polled six.Odera scored for Leopards in victories over Sony Sugar, Mathare United, Wazito and Kakamega Homeboyz.His challengers for the gong, Nyakeya had three goals and an assist that helped keep Mathare United on the league summit. Rupia’s four goals were instrumental in lifting Nzoia from the relegation pit.With the award, Odera who has hit the back of the net six times already hopes he can challenge for the golden boot. The closest he has come to the award was when he was runner up during his breakout season at KCB in 2010.New AFC Leopards coach Radolfo Zapata congratulates forward Ezekiel Odera after picking his March SJAK Player of the Month Award on April 24, 2018.

I need to keep working hard and ultimately I want to give a shot at that golden boot,” the soft-spoken forward added.Outgoing coach Dennis Kitambi was full of praise for the forward, saying the results came through because of his sheer hard work.“His work ethic is good and this is a reward you get for that. At least it will give the team motivation moving forward and hopefully now we get back to winning ways,” said Kitambi who will hand over the mantle to Argentine Radolfo Zapata from May 1.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Call for ‘disability’ to be at the core of new Letterkenny Area Plan

first_imgA call has been made to make disability a core part of the new Letterkenny Area Plan.The call was made by local county councillor Jimmy Kavanagh.He said that disability should no longer be an “us and them” issue and that the people of Letterkenny need positive change. “There is an opportunity now when in the process of devising the new plan to make disability a central part of that plan.“This is something I have requested from the planners in our workshops and it is something that I hope they will respond positively to.“Disability has for far too long been an “us and them” issue. That approach needs to change and we need to realise that disability is about everyone, anyone of us are only a traffic accident, a fall or an illness away from finding ourselves disabled.”He added that making disability a central part of the plan would also help greatly in supporting our efforts to have an age-friendly town, as many of the issues facing people with disabilities impact equally on elderly citizens, we could also in the process, help remove any stigma attached to disability. Cllr Jimmy KavanaghHe said “We should therefore make disability a core consideration in the planning not just of our buildings, footpaths etc., but also our social housing design, the design of our parks, transport facilities, walks, leisure facilities, etc.“We should also be looking at making our workplaces accessible so that people with a disability are not excluded from applying or getting employment, our own public bodies could lead on an initiative to achieve this.”Currently, in Donegal only 18% of people with a disability are in employment.Cllr Kavanagh said that he has found on his canvass that the issue of young people with a disability both physical and intellectual, finding it extremely difficult to get employment is a recurring theme, even though in many instances these are well educated and very gifted people.According to the 2016 census almost 23,000 people in the county has at least one disability. Cllr Kavanagh added “Letterkenny and Donegal has a chance to lead the way in helping to tackle the issues facing the disabled, and we should take the opportunity that the new Letterkenny Area Plan presents to lay the groundwork for improved access and facilities for those with a disability.“If we do that we will not just improve the lives of the disabled and elderly we will also enhance the lives of our entire community, by helping people of all abilities to thrive and contribute to the future development of the area.” Cllr. Kavanagh concluded.Call for ‘disability’ to be at the core of new Letterkenny Area Plan was last modified: April 27th, 2019 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:callCllr Jimmy KavanaghDisabilityletterkennylast_img read more

Classical Creation Physicists Still Make News

first_imgThey lived before relativity and quantum mechanics, but their insights continue to stimulate productive research in 21st-century physics.Most fields of science were overhauled in the twentieth century. There aren’t many theories from Victorian times that have survived unscathed.Lord KelvinWilliam Thomson, a.k.a. Lord Kelvin, the eminent physicist of Glasgow who dominated physical science in Victorian Britain, was a strong Christian. He gave Darwin a hard time — not with quotes from the Bible, but rather from laws of physics. Much of Lord Kelvin’s work on thermodynamics, communications and energy theory survives (e.g., the Kelvin Scale). Although some of his theories were discarded or revised, one of his speculative ideas about atoms has been ‘resurrected’ by cutting-edge physicists at the University of Durham in the UK. Lord Kelvin can be forgiven for lacking the tools to measure atoms when he was alive, but he may have been ahead of his time with one theory, says Phys.org:In the late 1800s when scientists were still trying to figure out what exactly atoms are, one of the leading theories, proposed by Lord Kelvin, was that atoms are knots of swirling vortices in the aether. Although this idea turned out to be completely wrong, it ushered in modern knot theory, which today is used in various areas of science such as fluid dynamics, the structure of DNA, and the concept of chirality.Now in a new paper published in Physical Review Letters, mathematical physicist Paul Sutcliffe at Durham University in the UK has theoretically shown that nanoparticles called magnetic skyrmions can be tied into various types of knots with different magnetic properties. He explains that, in a sense, these nanoknots represent a “nanoscale resurrection of Kelvin’s dream of knotted fields.“James Clerk MaxwellWithout controversy, Maxwell’s Equations continue to bear fruit in many fields of electromagnetics and electrical engineering. James Clerk Maxwell was another strong Bible-believing Christian all of his life, even through the Darwinian revolution. One of his insights about statistical thermodynamics has generated controversy to the present day. Called ‘Maxwell’s Demon’ (not his term), this idea proposes a way to overcome the law of entropy. Some entity, whether a conscious being (the ‘demon’) or some automaton, could selectively separate hot and cold molecules into separate compartments, he reasoned, thus overcoming the second law of thermodynamics. Proof that this was not idle speculation rendered obsolete by quantum mechanics can be seen by a recent paper in PNAS titled, “Observing a quantum Maxwell demon at work.” So important is the concept, the researchers state, “Maxwell’s demon plays a central role in thermodynamics of quantum information, yet a full experimental characterization is still missing in the quantum regime.”Science Daily confirms that importance with its title of a summary of the paper, “Pioneering research offers a fascinating view into the inner workings of the mind of ‘Maxwell’s Demon’, a famous thought experiment in physics.” The write-up at Phys.org suggests that important new breakthroughs will come from Maxwell’s insight:In the years since James Clerk Maxwell proposed the first demon around 1870, many other versions have been theoretically and experimentally investigated. Most recently, physicists have begun investigating Maxwell’s demons that operate in the quantum regime, which could one day have implications for quantum information technologies.Sir Isaac NewtonThe most famous scientist in history, Sir Isaac Newton, whose Principia launched the scientific revolution, is not a has-been after Einstein. In fact, his name keeps coming up in discussions of one of the biggest controversies of cosmology: Does dark matter exist? Now that repeated tests have failed to identify any substance, theoretical or actual, that could account for the motions of spiral galaxies and galaxy clusters, some physicists are looking to “Modified Newtonian Dynamics” (MOND) for help. One such example giving serious consideration to MOND can be found at Live Science, which mentions Newton eight times in a piece, “Is Dark Matter Real?”. The details of these debates need not concern us here; suffice it to say that there are discussions of ‘modifying’ Newtonian dynamics, not rejecting them, as some teachers seem prone to do with Newton’s theories in the age of Einstein. Students of science may not know that Isaac Newton wrote more about the Bible than he did about science.It’s worth remembering often that not all scientists are atheists, Darwinists, and materialists. In fact, many of the greatest scientists of all time, including founders of major fields of science, were at least theists if not Bible believers and creationists (see our list of biographies). Many still are today. The Darwinians are like the Marxist-Stalinist-Leninists who took over Russia, kicked out (or killed or imprisoned) everyone who opposed them, and presented themselves as the “saviors” of Russia. Don’t fall for the big lie. The insights of Newton, Kelvin and Maxwell sprang from minds devoted to God and His word, and one mark of a great scientific mind is the ability to produce ideas with staying power. But doesn’t Darwinism have staying power? Yes—by force (6/08/17). If Darwinism had to stand up to free debate, it would collapse like Lysenko’s fake science supported by Lenin, Stalin and Mao. Read our biographies and decide who had the best ideas with lasting impact. Much of cutting edge-science continues to build on their foundations. Conversely, much of the worst science comes from materialists (6/05/17, 5/19/17). You can’t get much good science out of evolved monkey brains mutating by chance (7/11/17).(Visited 485 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Do I Need a Vapor Retarder?

This article is only available to GBA Prime Memberscenter_img UPDATED on May 15, 2015Every couple of weeks, someone sends me an e-mail with a description of a proposed wall assembly and an urgent question: “Do I need a vapor retarder?” Energy experts have been answering the same question, repeatedly, for at least thirty years. Of course, even though I sometimes sigh when I read this recurring question, it’s still a perfectly good question.The short answer is: if your wall doesn’t have a vapor retarder, there is no need to worry. Builders worry way too much about vapor diffusion and vapor retarders. It’s actually very rare for a building to have a problem caused by vapor diffusion.A while back, I collected seven questions about vapor diffusion, and published them (along with my answers) in a blog called “Vapor Retarders and Vapor Barriers.” Since new questions keep showing up in my In box, I decided it was time for another Q&A roundup on vapor diffusion. Here are nine more questions on the topic.A. Water vapor is water in a gaseous state — that is, water that has evaporated. It is invisible. It is present in the air we inhale, and (in even greater concentrations) in the air we exhale.When this invisible water vapor moves through building materials, the phenomenon is called vapor diffusion.A. In the 1970s and early ’80s, builders were taught that it was important to install a vapor barrier (usually, polyethylene sheeting) on the warm-in-winter side of wall insulation and ceiling insulation. Most textbooks and magazines explained that a vapor barrier was needed to keep the walls dry during the winter, and that walls without vapor barriers would get wet.This was bad advice, for several reasons. First of all, outward vapor diffusion through walls during the winter almost never leads… last_img read more

Drama club: Cavaliers hold meeting to vent frustration

first_imgKammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa They’ve lost 10 of 14 and dropped to third in the Eastern Conference behind Boston and Toronto. With an embarrassing defeat to Oklahoma City on national TV still lingering, the Cavs decided it was time to address their troubled state before leaving for Tuesday’s game at San Antonio.“We aired any grievances we had and we’re going to move forward,” said center Kevin Love, who regretted that the meeting was leaked publicly. “Hopefully we’ll be better for it, we have been in the past.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutChaos is nothing new for the Cavaliers, who have had similar blowups in recent years yet managed to overcome any differences and went to the Finals the past three years.Love has been in the middle of controversy before, and after he missed two days with an illness, it was presumed he was involved in Monday’s discussion. View comments Lue thought it was misguided for Love to absorb the brunt of the criticism after his teammates allowed the most points by a Cleveland team since 1972.“That’s crazy. I mean, if Kevin was out there, we might have given up 170,” he said, laughing. “We’re being tested right now.

We’ve been able to thrive under a certain amount of chaos at some points. The good thing about us is we’ve got better throughout the course of seasons and we’ve peaked at the right time. We’re hoping that it’s not any different.”LeBron James refused to address the meeting, saying “I don’t want to talk about it” three times.James enters the matchup with the Spurs needing seven points to become the seventh player in league history with 30,000.Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue spoke during the meeting, which took place at the team’s training facility in Independence, Ohio.Lue has decided not to make any changes to his lineup or rotations in hopes that his experienced team — Cleveland has the league’s oldest roster — will figure things out.Until then, Lue hopes that venting their concerns will help the Cavaliers, who have been blown out three times in the past two weeks.“We’ve got to do something about it,” he said. “We’re doing a lot of talking, but we’ve got to play better. We’ve got to execute better offensively, we’ve got to execute better defensively. We’ve got to be better collectively. Everyone has to be better. We’ve been saying that, but we’re taking the necessary steps to do that.”Love played just three minutes in Saturday’s loss to the Thunder because of an illness. He went home and then missed Sunday’s practice, but Lue dismissed Love’s absence as an issue.“It’s not about one person, it’s about all of us,” he said. “If the training staff says Kevin is sick and he’s out, he’s sick and he’s out. I don’t think anybody on our team is a doctor, none of the players, so you can’t speak for what the training staff says. Of course, throughout the course of the season he’s human, everyone is human and there’s going to be other guys that are going to get sick and be down now, too.“We’ve just got to move forward, move past that and we’ve got to try to get on track as far as winning basketball games.” John Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding MOST READ Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH 2016 champion Kerber advances to Australian Open semifinals FILE – In this Monday, Jan. 8, 2018, file photo, Cleveland Cavaliers players, from left, LeBron James, Isaiah Thomas, Kevin Love, JR Smith and Jae Crowder take a break during a review in the second half of an NBA basketball game against the Minnesota Timberwolves in Minneapolis.

We’re trying to figure this thing out. People hold themselves to a very high standard on this team and we’re a team that can compete at the highest level. So, for us, it’s not about me.“I’m not going to make it about myself. I’m sure with other guys, it’s the same thing. The biggest thing is moving forward. For me, the thing I’ve always done is kept my mouth shut, I continue to work hard and try to do best for the Cavs. That’s all I can do tonight and moving forward these last 35, 40 games and overall just try to help this team.”While Love wants to move on from the team’s latest turbulence, there may be some unresolved issues.When the team arrived at San Antonio’s AT&T Center, Love was the first player off the bus and he walked into the arena by himself wearing headphones and carrying a coffee cup. His teammates trailed in behind him.Although Love is averaging 18.6 points and 9.4 rebounds, there always seems to be a sense that he should be doing more.

Lewis Hamilton aims to do late friend proud in title duel

first_imgThe death of an old friend and mentor has doubled Lewis Hamilton’s determination to win Sunday’s title-deciding Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. (Latest F1 stories)The Mercedes driver paid a moving tribute on Thursday to Aki Hintsa, the McLaren team doctor and fitness expert who played a key role in convincing the former champions to give him a Formula One debut in 2007.”Whilst I have that fighting spirit in my heart from the last races I’ve done, I come here with almost double the power in the sense that I feel I want to win this race more so for him,” the Briton told reporters. (Jenson Button says Abu Dhabi will be his last race)”We were texting every single race through his battle and particularly the last race on Sunday,” he added. “So coming here this weekend, whilst it’s an emotional time, I’m here to try and do him proud.”Hamilton, 12 points behind team mate Nico Rosberg, revealed that he had flown to Switzerland immediately after winning the Brazilian Grand Prix to be with the Finn. (Decisive day looms for Hamilton and Rosberg)A former missionary and medic, who had worked in Ethiopia and African war zones before joining McLaren in the days when compatriot Mika Hakkinen was champion, Hintsa died of cancer last week at the age of 58.”I was very, very fortunate to have been able to be there with him and his family in the last days and actually get to see him on the last day of his…,” Hamilton said, his voice tailing off with emotion.advertisement”On the Monday after Brazil, I got to see him and spend time with him and we played music, got to see him smile, got to see the amazing man he was,” added the Briton, who flew back to Los Angeles before arriving in the Middle East.”He was very instrumental in me getting that seat at McLaren… he’d built a really strong relationship with (former team boss) Ron (Dennis) and Ron was kind of a mind to say that if Aki says you’re ready then I believe you’re ready,” he recalled.Hamilton has won the last three races, and nine in total this season — more than any driver has ever managed in a season without taking the title.With Rosberg sure to be crowned for the first time if he finishes on the podium, regardless of other results, Hamilton said his sole goal was to win the race.”If it doesn’t go the way I’d hope, well — the championship generally hasn’t gone the way I’d hoped up until now,” said the Briton.”So 2016 has generally not been a spectacular year but there’s been lots of positives to take out from it and either way I will take all the positives into next season.”last_img read more

Bullpen Fails, Jays Beat Yanks, 3-1

first_imgTORONTO — The New York Yankees have used a brilliant bullpen to climb to the top of the American League East. Things didn’t work out so well for their relievers May 4.Pinch-hitter Russell Martin singled home the go-ahead run in the eighth inning and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Yankees 3-1, snapping New York’s road winning streak at six games.New York lost despite getting seven scoreless innings from starter Chase Whitley.“It’s unfortunate because we got a great game from Whitley,” Manager Joe Girardi said. “We just didn’t score any runs tonight.”With closer Andrew Miller unavailable after locking down a May 3 win at Boston, and New York nursing a 1-0 lead, Girardi hoped to get two outs from Chris Martin in the eighth before turning things over to Dellin Betances.Instead, the Blue Jays struck for three runs. Josh Donaldson and Jose Bautista chased Martin (0-1) with one-out singles before Edwin Encarnacion greeted Betances with a bloop double that landed just inside the foul line in shallow left.One out later, Martin grounded an RBI single to third. A diving Chase Headley made the stop in foul territory, but first baseman Garrett Jones couldn’t scoop Headley’s low throw and the ball rolled away, allowing Encarnacion to score an unearned run.“I thought we had him,” Headley said. “It’s a do-or-die play. I didn’t even know if I had a chance to catch it. When I caught it, I just got up and threw it as hard as I could and almost got him.”Betances, who blew his first save, had pitched in 12 games without allowing a run, a streak that dated to his season-opening appearance, April 8 against Toronto.“I don’t think there’s anything I could have really done different there,” Betances said. “They just found holes.”Whitley, who allowed six hits, walked none and struck out six, shrugged off the bullpen’s struggles. “I’ll take our chance with this bullpen any day of the week,” Whitley said.R.A. Dickey (1-3) allowed one run and three hits in eight innings for his first win in six starts. “That’s probably as good as I’ve seen him in three years,” Manager John Gibbons said of Dickey.Headley said it’s never easy facing Dickey’s knuckleball. “It’s really tough because it’s so much different than anything that you do,” Headley said. “You can’t really prepare for it.”Brett Cecil finished for his second save.New York’s lone run came in the seventh when Carlos Beltran hit a leadoff double and went to third on Stephen Drew’s grounder. After Headley walked, Beltran scored on Jones’ RBI grounder.Both teams threatened in the sixth, but neither could break the deadlock. Jacoby Ellsbury hit a two-out double and Brett Gardner walked, but Alex Rodriguez flied out.Devon Travis singled to begin the bottom half and went to third on Donaldson’s double, but Whitley kept it scoreless by getting Bautista to ground out, fanning Encarnacion and retiring Kevin Pillar on a pop up.“That was great,” Girardi said. “Just outstanding pitching on his part.”(IAN HARRISON)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more
