9th Annual Hiawatha Invitational is a hole-in-one

first_imgBump told 12 News that getting players back on the course was important for their big event of the Summer. The invitational consisted of 172 players teeing off throughout the course of the day. The two-day event was condensed to Sunday only because of Saturday’s rain. Course general manager, Jonathan Bump, said the invitational followed all social distancing guidelines throughout the day. APALACHIN (WBNG) – The 9th Annual Hiawatha Invitational wrapped up at the Links at Hiawatha Landing on Sunday. “I think it’s the one big event every year that we run ourselves, and it’s a great combination of our membership and general public play,” said Bump.last_img read more

Van Gaal keeps counsel over Mou

first_img After signing Diego Costa, Filipe Luis, Cesc Fabregas and Didier Drogba, Mourinho is happy with his squad ahead of the new season. That is not the case for Van Gaal though. The Dutchman is looking to sign at least one centre-back before the transfer window shuts and another midfielder. One of those on Van Gaal’s shortlist is Kevin Strootman. Roma coach Rudi Garcia insisted on Friday that the Holland midfielder would not leave the Italian club this summer. But Van Gaal refused to rule out the possibility of signing the 24-year-old once he recovers from the serious knee injury he suffered in March. “We have to wait and see how he comes back from his injury, he has been out for over six months,” Van Gaal said when asked about reports he was interested in signing his compatriot. Strootman has been left in Boston, where Roma played Liverpool earlier this week, to recover from his injury, so the Dutchman will not face United in Saturday’s friendly in Denver. Van Gaal, who admitted he has been unimpressed with some of United’s players in training, was laying down the law to his squad on the eve of the match. The Dutchman gave Chris Smalling a dressing down during an open training session at the Sports Authority Field and he seemed extremely unimpressed by a select group who continued to miss the target from set-pieces. Off the pitch Van Gaal has been making his presence felt too, demanding water breaks during Saturday’s match, which is due to be played in the 33 degree Colorado heat. “It is unbelievable that we play at 2pm,” said Van Gaal, who criticised FIFA for making Holland play Mexico on a blistering afternoon in Fortaleza during the World Cup. “We have to adapt to the situation. “All the players will play 45 minutes apart from Tom Cleverley and Tyler Blackett. “I hope to have a pause for a drink also. I shall convince the referee, like it did in Fortaleza. It was the first time they had a drinks break at the World Cup. Mostly they listen.” Cleverley lost his place in England’s World Cup squad after a poor season under David Moyes, but hopes to excel this term. The midfielder, who got two hefty pats on the back from Van Gaal as he sat by him during the pre-match press conference, thinks he can benefit from playing in the manager’s new 3-5-2 formation. “I watched Holland in the World Cup and I think I can be his type of player,” Cleverley said. “I have to show that in training and most importantly in the games. I think there is a place for me. I have to prove that.” Rafael will miss the friendly, which is part of the International Champions Cup, after he hobbled off in training with what looked like a groin injury. Louis van Gaal looks set to speak to Jose Mourinho over his claim that signing Luke Shaw would have “killed” Chelsea. Press Association The Chelsea manager claimed Shaw’s reported wages of around £100,000 a week were way too large for a player who only made his Premier League debut in November 2012. “If we pay to a 19-year-old boy what we were being asked for, to sign Luke Shaw, we are dead,” Mourinho was quoted as saying in several national newspapers. “We would have killed our stability with financial fair play and killed the stability in our dressing room, because when you pay that much to a 19-year-old kid – a good player, fantastic player – but when you pay that amount of money, the next day, we would have had players knocking on our door. “They would have been saying, ‘How is it possible I play 200 games for this club, won this and that, yet a 19-year-old comes here and gets more money than I get?'” Van Gaal refused to get drawn into a public war of words with Mourinho – a former protege of his at Barcelona – but it appears he will discuss the matter privately with the Portuguese. “I don’t think I have to discuss things in the media, it’s better to discuss it with Jose,” he said. Mourinho recently spoke about how he was looking forward to coming up against the man he assisted at Barcelona for three years. The Chelsea boss said earlier this week that there is a “fantastic relation” between the pair, but that could be tested further this season if the Portuguese criticises Van Gaal’s new charges. Shaw became the fourth-most expensive defender in history this summer when he signed for Manchester United for an initial fee of £27million. Chelsea, who Shaw supported as a youngster, were interested in the 19-year-old, but Mourinho revealed he pulled out of a bid to sign the player due to his wage demands. last_img read more

Lifeline Inishowen to submit final funding petition in an attempt not to close

first_imgManagement at Lifeline Inishowen, a domestic violence service, are set to submit a final petition for reinstating funding at Leinster House on Wednesday, June 26. The news comes as the service continues to financially struggle to keep its door, a struggle that has been ongoing over the previous nine years.Last month, the manager of Lifeline Inishowen told Donegal Daily that failure to provide funding for the centre in Carndonagh will cause further abuse and isolation for victims in north Donegal.  The centre, which helped over 46 women last year with domestic violence cases, has not been sanctioned government funding since 2011 despite the efforts of the centre over the last four years.“Nothing has changed this year despite the ratification of the Istanbul convention, which is a legal instrument that focuses on combating violence against women and domestic violence,” Mary Doherty said.“More services like Lifeline Inishowen should be welcomed and supported in rural Donegal.“I do not understand why there cannot be sufficient national level coordination with Lifeline Inishowen, particularly since the outreach was created by the local community itself,” Doherty added. The Inishowen group received only €3,200 out of the €650,000 Tusla funding granted in 2018, strictly for child counselling services. “Lifeline Inishowen has been of great benefit to the patients of this practice over the last number of years. Our local community supports and depends upon it and we look forward to its continued presence in Inishowen,” said Dr Ken Devlin.“Lifeline Inishowen is an essential service which is at the frontline providing services to vulnerable women and children.“There have been significant improvements for the families involved. When children are in need of therapeutic services they need to be seen as soon as possible.”Officials from the government insist the Donegal Women’s Centre in Letterkenny is suitable to cover the entire county, leaving those in Inishowen as far as 65km from the centre. “The counselling service in Lifeline (Inishowen)has responded immediately and offered a service which meets the needs of each individual child and family,” highlights social worker, Annette Duffy.“The service needs to continue in Inishowen given that Inishowen is very rural and families do not have transport to Letterkenny where most therapeutic services are placed.“Should Lifeline cease to exist, I fear that children and families in Inishowen will lose a valuable service which will have a detrimental effect on their future development”Lifeline Inishowen to submit final funding petition in an attempt not to close was last modified: June 22nd, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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:InishowenLifeline Inishowenlast_img read more

Objectivity of Science Undermined

first_imgScience has no boast if not objective.  It is objectivity that supposedly sets science apart from all other modes of inquiry: following a “scientific method” that guarantees objective truth about the natural world.  Results are reported in peer-reviewed journals that weed out mistaken ideas.  After publication, other scientists can replicate any published results, making science a self-correcting process that refines its objectivity over time.   Most insiders and philosophers know that the picture is highly flawed, but the vision persists that science is objective.  Recent  articles raise awareness of some of the problems with the portrayal of scientific objectivity. Fiery Feyerabend:  Paul Feyerabend was a fiery philosopher of science who fiercely attacked the concept of scientific objectivity.  He died in 1994, but a new anthology of his writings has come out, The Tyranny of Science, Oberheim E, editor (Cambridge: Polity Press, 2011).  Two reviews were published in PLoS Biology earlier this month (Ian Kidd, Axel Meyer).  Although both reviewers think his reputation for the “worst enemy of science” is overblown, there is no question Feyerabend warned of treating science as an objective process.  He worried that it could be a threat to democracy – an elitist society unanswerable to the people.  Meyer quoted him saying, “The separation of state and church must be complemented by the separation of state and science, that most recent, most aggressive, and most dogmatic religious institution.”  Many regard his views as extreme, but Feyerabend did raise a number of issues that are still taken seriously.  Kidd, commenting on the 1990s debates about objectivity vs constructivism (the idea that science “constructs” reality rather than “discovering” it), remarked that “There is some truth to such charges” as Feyerabend raised. Consensus bashing:  In Nature earlier this month (published online 5 October 2011 | Nature 478, 7 (2011) | doi:10.1038/478007a), a headline read, “The voice of science: let’s agree to disagree.”  Subtitle: “Consensus reports are the bedrock of science-based policy-making. But disagreement and arguments are more useful, says Daniel Sarewitz.”  That represents severe erosion of the bedrock.  His first line: “When scientists wish to speak with one voice, they typically do so in a most unscientific way: the consensus report.”  Sharing recent examples of the politics that stifle minority opinions, Sarewitz advised more debate and less consensus.  For example, “much of what is most interesting about a subject gets left out of the final report.”  Take-home paragraph: The very idea that science best expresses its authority through consensus statements is at odds with a vibrant scientific enterprise. Consensus is for textbooks; real science depends for its progress on continual challenges to the current state of always-imperfect knowledge. Science would provide better value to politics if it articulated the broadest set of plausible interpretations, options and perspectives, imagined by the best experts, rather than forcing convergence to an allegedly unified voice. Conflict of interest:  The field of bioengineering is a good place to look for demons undercutting objectivity.  The lure of fame or money clouds the objectivity of some researchers, while products of bioengineering – including human cloning – overlap with ethics, philosophy, and theology in big ways.  In a Nature book review about Jonathan Moreno’s new book The Body Politic: The Battle Over Science in America (Bellevue Literary Press, 2011), reviewer Kevin Finneran used the eye-catching headline, “Bioethics: Brave new politics” (Nature 478, 13 October 2011, pp. 184–185, doi:10.1038/478184a).  Emphasizing the fact that today’s science cannot remove itself from society, Finneran said, “The age of bioscience has become the age of biopolitics.”  Apparently Moreno wrote his book with a political bias of his own: “Moreno devotes much of the book to a critique of what he sees as a neoconservative hostility to science, and explains how science can be a key ingredient of a progressive political agenda.”  That doesn’t sound objective; in fact, Finneran felt that “Moreno’s analysis focuses too heavily on the neoconservatives,” while he himself showed he had some heart for conservative concerns: “The challenge is to maintain this human side of science when the research, to many people, seems to be a threat to what is essentially human.” Smear review:  Many have questioned the value of peer review in recent years (a relatively recent convention in science, dating largely from after World War II).  Virginia Gewen, writing in Nature this month (478, 13 October 2011, pp. 275–277, doi:10.1038/nj7368-275a) joked a little about the naivete of rookie reviewers.  In “Rookie review,” she revealed a bit of the good-old-boys’ club mentality among seasoned reviewers.  Rookies (who incidentally never receive much training on how to review a paper) think they are supposed to tell the truth: one Nature editor explained why she sought out rookies as reviewers: “they are politically naive enough to tell the truth,” implying that is the exception to the rule for more seasoned reviewers.  Yet even with that saintly attribute, rookies tend to give inconsistent grades, or overestimate their objectivity.  Gewen also touched on the issues of disclosure of bias, conflict of interest and politics that cloud the objectivity of peer review in general. Anthropology:  Can science answer big questions like “What is man’s place in nature?”  Sites like New Scientist don’t hesitate to ask.  What, though, gives a scientist more power of place to discuss such things than a theologian or philosopher?  All have access to the same basic scientific facts.  Botanist Sandra Knapp gave her opinions on this key question with hat tips to Alfred Russell Wallace and Charles Darwin.  Proceeding on to the opinions of Melanie Challenger, author of On Extinctions, Knapp discussed other questions far beyond the data of any scientific method: are humans natural?  What is naturalness?  Knapp concluded that Challenger’s book “doesn’t offer answers to any of the complex questions it raises, but it will make you pause to consider your own relationship with the natural world that surrounds you.”  If science can only ask questions, and not provide answers, then it would seem to be one among many valid modes of inquiry. Aesthetics:  Can art free itself from anthropo-centrism?  What would a universal art look like?  It might be pretty bland.  Imagine a Bach concerto with a quarter of its notes mutated back to randomness by the law of entropy.  Think of a painting with nothing but a uniform shade of tan.  Those are some of the things Jonathan Keats (no relation, as far as we know, to the English romantic poet John Keats) tried to visualize by taking the Copernican principle to the extreme in his new San Francisco exhibit, “The First Copernican Art Manifesto.”  Keats didn’t even intend his art for humans.  Science Magazine entertained the radical idea (“Random Samples,” 21 October 2011: Vol. 334 no. 6054 pp. 295-297, DOI:0.1126/science.334.6054.295-a), but didn’t explain how the Bach composition arose in the first place without intelligent design, or how astronomers determined the average color of starlight was tan without intention and purpose. Indeed, the color of the universe is highly localized to stars and galaxies.  A question of definitions also arises.  If there is no intelligent viewer, is there art? What you are not told:  Dr. Jennifer Rohn, an insider in the world of academic research, writes a blog called LabLit.  Guest blogger Matthew Hall, in the October 21 entry, revealed “The untold story: what doesn’t make the cut in scientific papers.”  Hall argues that reproducibility is rare in science.  Few read a paper’s protocol and try to reproduce the experiment.  Besides, most research papers are so boring!  “Given that protocols aren’t as useful as one is taught in History and Philosophy of Science courses, why can’t they be more personal?”  He recommends writing scientific papers like stories.  Perhaps many already do.  How would anybody know without trying to reproduce the experiment? Analyze the analyzers:  An article on Medical Xpress claims that a new field is emerging: the Psychology of Science.  The bumper states: You’ve heard of the history of science, the philosophy of science, maybe even the sociology of science. But how about the psychology of science? In a new article in Current Directions in Psychological Science, a journal published by the Association for Psychological Science, San Jose State University psychologist Gregory J. Feist argues that a field has been quietly taking shape over the past decade, and it holds great promise for both psychology and science. While an interesting trend, it raises the question of the objectivity of the psychologist.  Who will analyze the analyzer, and so on ad infinitum? We hope these short forays into questioning the objectivity of science provide some snack food for thought.  There are much richer meals in books and lectures.  Don’t be a dupe and merely assume that someone who calls himself or herself a scientist has a corner on objectivity.  Scientists can be very adept at math, jargon and specialized fields of inquiry, but at the conclusion of any paper, every citizen has a responsibility to weigh evidence, evaluate reasoning, and consider influences that led to the conclusion.(Visited 64 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

World Cup has inspired Africans: Zuma

first_img2 July 2010As the 2010 Fifa World Cup™ enters the home stretch, South African President Jacob Zuma says he believes the legacy of hosting the tournament will benefit the African continent for decades.In an exclusive interview with Fifa at his presidential residence in Pretoria this week, Zuma said the “Rainbow Nation” had exceeded expectations in its hosting of the tournament, confirming that Fifa’s trust in Africa was not misplaced.Fifa: Mr President, first of all thank you for your time. With only a week left in this 2010 Fifa World Cup, what are your impressions so far of the tournament?President Zuma: I think the tournament is going extremely well and we are very happy, South Africans are happy. You just have to see the reaction of the people at all the matches. I must also say that the international community is very happy about this tournament. I had an opportunity to be in Toronto at the G8 meeting, and the excitement I saw from other heads of state was unbelievable. You could have seen the emotions. This has been, undoubtedly a very successful tournament. I think we have proved that not only South Africa, but Africa is capable of hosting any major event.When you were in Robben Island, did you ever imagine that South Africa would host an event of this magnitude and you would oversee that period?Not at all, I don’t think any of us imagined that. As you might recall, at that time, we were campaigning for the isolation of apartheid South Africa. And, when Fifa took a decision to ban South Africa, it was a significant step. We only dreamt that one day, a free and equal South Africa would participate at international competitions. We never thought that South Africa, so early on, would host a World Cup. In any case, when I was in Robben Island I never thought I would be President. It is indeed a humbling experience if you take that into account.How important was it for South Africa to succeed at this Fifa World Cup following the doubts and scepticism that the country had been the subject of in some circles?I think it was very important for us to succeed. But you must remember that, as South Africans, we pride ourselves on the fact that we always rise up to any challenge. As a matter of fact, nobody believed that we would have a smooth transition from apartheid and we did it. As you know, a Fifa World Cup has never been hosted in Africa. When South Africa first declared its intentions to host the World Cup, some people said, “What is this country from Africa thinking”. Yes, we lost the first time [to Germany], but we knew that we would do it next time. That is what defines us as a country – our attitude and the belief that nothing is impossible. We knew we deserved it, but some continued to say, “impossible, they won’t be able to organise it” and they talked about a “plan B”. When we completed the stadiums, people started to talk about security and other issues, but we have had a great tournament. And today, a lot of people who are honest enough have come out and said: “We confess, we were wrong about your country”.Talking about the significance of the World Cup. We know that this tournament was also earmarked as an opportunity for nation building for this young democracy. Do you think that has been achieved?Absolutely, beyond expectations. This has been an important component for our nation building. It is for the first time in South Africa that we have seen this Rainbow Nation really coming together in a manner we have not witnessed before. For the first time, I have noticed that every South African is now flying our national flag. Everybody is just crazy about this tournament, both black and white. This tournament proved that sport is a tool for nation building.It has always been said that a successful hosting of the World Cup in South Africa will strengthen South Africa’s case to bid for more international events. Do you think that is the case?This has proved to the world that we are capable of hosting any international event, we have the resources and infrastructure. People are already talking about a possibility of bidding for major events and we are supporting this. The Olympics are an example, I don’t see why we can’t bid to host the Olympics in the future. It’s important for Africa.What lessons, as a government, have you learned from hosting this Fifa World Cup?There are many. Firstly, we learned a lot about how to work with strict timelines. We have embarked on a lot of development and we had to work within a tight schedule in order to deliver on time.You are someone who has declared his love for football. How many matches have you been able to watch so far and which team has impressed you so far?I have watched many games, I think this Fifa World Cup has been different. Football has been so unpredictable, we no longer have smaller countries now in football. Some of the countries who were favourites are now out of the tournament, and we see that gap between the so-called big teams and other teams narrowing. Of course, there are countries that have played well. Even though Bafana Bafana did not qualify, I think we played good football and I was happy. We were so close to qualifying. I was impressed with teams like Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, Germany. I think the Germans have reinvented their game, they are playing with so much speed and it’s good to watch them. But the teams from Latin America have been great. Countries like Brazil and Argentina are a pleasure to watch. In Africa, we are all proud of Ghana, they have represented us very well.Mr President, we might as well put you on the spot and ask you to predict which team will win the tournament on 11 July?It’s difficult to say, but I think the winner will be amongst the teams I have counted [laughing].People often talk about the legacy of this Fifa World Cup. What legacy would you want it to leave for the South African child?Firstly, the world is aware that Africa has the capacity to host the World Cup. Everybody has seen that we are equal to the task. It has taken the economic development to a different level. One of the important things for Africa is education, and programmes like 1Goal are playing a vital role – that is legacy. This tournament has inspired Africans.Source: Fifa.comlast_img read more

More 3 pointers from June Mar Fajardo? Don’t count on it, says San Miguel center

first_imgPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hosting The three-pointer, though, wasn’t the only thing Fajardo did out of the ordinary.During the second half, with San Miguel holding a double-digit lead, Fajardo dribbled the ball between his legs and proceeded to shoot a fade-away jumper from the post.Unfortunately for Fajardo, the shot didn’t go in.Still, it was a moment of pure joy for Fajardo who got the moves from the Internet.“I got it by watching too much YouTube,” said Fajardo. “Coach Leo [Austria] just shook his head when I looked at him.”“It could’ve looked better if it went in, but it just missed. We’re also up by a big margin so I tried to do it but if the game’s close I won’t even think about doing it.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next P2.5 B shabu seized in Makati sting, Chinese national nabbed Gennady Golovkin to return in June after signing deal with DAZN MOST READ P2.5 B shabu seized in Makati sting, Chinese national nabbed Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles01:42Despite decorated career, June Mar Fajardo is not yet done: ‘I don’t want to be stagnant’01:02Fajardo predicts there will be no sweep in PBA Finals02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss View comments MANILA, Philippines—Don’t count on June Mar Fajardo shooting more threes any time in the PBA.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSUrgent reply from Philippine ‍football chiefSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesFajardo, who only has two made three-pointers in his career, shot his first three-point basket of the season in the first quarter of San Miguel’s 121-111 win over NLEX in the Philippine Cup Friday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.San Miguel’s joviant giant, however, said that he only took the outside shot since the shot clock was running out and the Beermen were up 28-4 after his conversion.
