The students in the Ag Academy wanted to do more for their community this year so they became involved in the U.S. Marine Reserve’s Toys for Tots program that provides new toys for disadvantaged children.On their own, the students in the Ag Academy decided to participate in Toys for Tots. “Instead of swapping gifts, they decided to purchase toys the Toys for Tots program,” Pritchett. “They have enjoyed helping make Christmas special for people of all ages and they have found it very rewarding so probably both of these projects will be something the students want to continue on an annual basis.”last_img read more

Odds & Ends: Sarah Paulson Talks ‘Scary’ Singing on AHS & More

first_img Annie Sequel Eyeing Broadway Annie lyricist Matin Charmin has hopes that a sequel to the classic tuner, Annie Warbucks, may still come to the Great White Way. “I was thinking it might be a kind of Nicholas Nickleby,” he revealed to the Chicago Tribune. “On Monday night you’d see Annie. On Tuesday, you’d see Annie Warbucks. Maybe you’d have to buy the pair!” Annie Warbucks was a hit off-Broadway back in the day—the tuner opened on August 9, 1993 and ran for 200 performances. Who knows? Maybe the upcoming movie remake of Annie will aid Annie Warbucks’ Great White Way ambitions. Sarah Paulson Talks Singing on AHS If you’re turned off by American Horror Story because of its horror element, we promise you that this clip is safe to watch. Unless you have a phobia of Jessica Lange in a powder blue pantsuit singing a David Bowie classic while being wheeled in on a cardboard rocket ship. Have a watch below as Broadway vets Lange, Sarah Paulson and more discuss bringing those crazy anachronistic musical numbers to Freak Show. “It was the scariest thing I’ve ever done in my life,” says Paulson, of having to learn not only how to sing, but also how to harmonize with herself as conjoined sisters Bette and Dot. “And I’ve done a lot of scary things on this show.” You mean like “The Name Game?” Philip Quast Boards London’s Sweeney, Starring Emma Thompson Philip Quast will play Judge Turpin in the previously reported ENO production of Sweeney Todd, starring Bryn Terfel and Emma Thompson, at the London Coliseum next spring.

KCCA FC in advanced talks to sign former Vipers striker

first_imgMusa Esenu spent last season on loan at Kirinya JSS (file photo)KCCA FC are believed to be in the advanced talks to sign former Vipers striker Musa Esenu.Esenu who has had a troubled stay at Kitende ever since he completed a switch from Soana in 2016 is currently on the hunt for a new side.He is now a free agent after receiving a release from FUFA citing a breach in contract from his former employers.The striker who joined Vipers at a fee believed to be in the region of Shs 30 Million failed to tie down a starting spot in the team from day one.He spent the entire last season on loan at Kirinya Jinja SS where he scored nine league goals and a handful of assists as the Jinja based side finished fifth.With KCCA FC lacking in the striking department following the departure of Muhammad Shaban and Derrick Nsibambi this year, Esenu will surely be hoping he can revive his career at Lugogo as his only competition comes in the names of Patrick Kaddu, another player who is just shaping his future.Should the negotiations materialize in the course of the near future, Esenu is likely to put pen to paper on a 2 year contract with the Uganda Cup holders.Comments Tags: KCCA FCkirinya jssMusa Essenuvipers sclast_img read more

Fishing for Darwinian Stories

first_img51; Stickleback fish can learn from each other where the best food sources are.  This proves you brain’s remarkable learning abilities have their roots in fish heads, according to science news sources this week.  Science Daily said the findings by UK scientists “show that the cognitive mechanisms underlying cumulative cultural evolution may be more prevalent in nonhuman animals than currently believed.”  Live Science used the E-word evolution three times in its coverage.  And the BBC News told its readers that “the findings contribute to the understanding of brain evolution and the types of brain required for certain cognitive functions, both in humans and animals.”    The Science Daily entry said something that may cast doubt on the common assumption that brain size matters.  “The findings show that big brains, like those in humans, are not necessarily needed as a pre-requisite for cumulative culture.”  What does that say about human evolution research?    However that controversial question shakes out, the three articles were overcome with awe at how these fish mimic human intelligence.  The BBC News called them the geniuses of the fish world.  Live Science quoted Jeremy Kendal [U of Durham] claiming that with evolution, pressure alone can give rise to wisdom: “What we’re finding is that it’s not necessarily how closely related a species is to the human [that’s the] defining feature of how cognitively complex you might be; it can also be your local ecological circumstances which provide selective pressures favoring evolution of these cognitive facilities.”If what Kendal said were true, fire would become more intelligent when water is sprayed at it.  Or is he claiming that matter in motion acts differently in life than it does in fire?  On what basis would he propose the distinction?  Vitalism is out in their philosophy.  You can’t produce cognition by putting pressure on atoms and molecules.  You can select out all the non-intelligent atoms you want till the cows come home, putting “selective pressure” on them, and you won’t ever get intelligent molecules.  All you will prove is that it takes intelligence to select things.    How long will it take before the Darwinians realize they are making utter fools of themselves with their continued storytelling about selective pressures producing all the wonders of biology?  It doesn’t “contribute to the understanding of brain evolution” unless you are already drunk on Dar-wine and having hallucinations.  Drunkards are convinced they are the smartest people in the world.    Zechariah wrote of a time when false prophets would be too embarrassed to show their faces in public (Zech. 13:2-6).  They wouldn’t wear a prophet’s robe, and they would lie about what they did for a living.  Would that day would come for the Alumni Association of the Darwin Fake Science University.(Visited 11 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Share on WhatsApp If he misses out and Northampton fail to reach the final he would face beginning England’s World Cup preparations next month without having played at all this year, though there is the possibility he could be included in next week’s squad to face the Barbarians.The squad to face the invitational side will be largely compromised of players not involved in the wider World Cup training squad group but there is a degree of wiggle room.Next week’s squad will also be overseen by Hartley’s former Northampton director of rugby, Jim Mallinder. “As the curve of his recovery has been pretty undulating, there is an element that we don’t want to put him back in when he’s not quite right. We’ll give him until the 11th hour,” said Northampton’s assistant coach, Phil Dowson.“He’s pretty philosophical about it. He’s old now. He’s bright enough, knows his body well enough and he’s played enough rugby to know that if he pushes it now then he misses an obvious opportunity down the track. But at the same time he wants to be involved in the first semi-final for quite some time.center_img Gloucester Saracens Danny Cipriani news Support The Guardian The Saracens director of rugby, Mark McCall, has warned of the threat posed by Danny Cipriani in Saturday’s Premiership semi-final, urging his side to cut the Gloucester fly-half off at the source.Saracens head into Saturday’s encounter at Allianz Park hot favourites to reach the final as they hope for another European and domestic double, having reclaimed the Champions Cup earlier this month.Cipriani meanwhile, has guided Gloucester into the play-offs for the first time since 2011 and his impact in his first season at Kingsholm was acknowledged last week when he was voted the Rugby Players’ Association’s player of the year. Rugby union Share on LinkedIn Saracens won the double in 2016 but the following year suffered a narrow semi-final defeat by Exeter in their Premiership semi-final the week after successfully defending their European crown.After their well-documented celebrations following victory over Leinster in Newcastle, McCall described the extra week’s preparation to face Gloucester – who have fitness concerns over Ollie Thorley and Ed Slater – as a “godsend”. He added: “There is this hangover from 2017 and how that opportunity got wasted – we don’t want to let that happen again.”McCall also brushed off comments from the Gloucester chief executive, Stephen Vaughan, who this week claimed Saracens should face a points deduction if they are found guilty of breaching the salary cap by Premiership Rugby. “There’s [an investigation] ongoing, isn’t there?” he said. “We should probably let that come to a conclusion.”In Saturday’s other semi-final, Northampton return to Exeter for a repeat of last Saturday’s fixture but have insisted they are not prepared to gamble on the fitness of Dylan Hartley.The 33-year-old has been sidelined since December with a knee problem and while Reece Marshall is a doubt because of a hamstring injury, Northampton will again make a late call on whether Hartley is ready to return. Twelve months ago, Cipriani was also part of the visiting team to Allianz Park at this stage of the season with Wasps but despite his best efforts Saracens ran out comfortable winners.Playing behind a beefed-up pack with a distinctly South African feel, Gloucester are hopeful of laying a better platform for Cipriani to shine in his duel with the England captain Owen Farrell on Saturday, and McCall acknowledged Saracens must not allow that to happen.“He’s a brilliant player,” said McCall, who confirmed Billy Vunipola and Jamie George would be fit to face Gloucester after they sustained shoulder injuries against Leinster. “Their starter plays, for example, are as good as anyone’s in Europe. They take some looking after and some planning. He does many things so well but we don’t necessarily focus on him. The focus is on trying to win a lot of other things which make his life more difficult.“If he gets front-foot ball and he’s playing off momentum the whole time he’s very, very good. Obviously we want that not to be the case. We want him to have some difficult slow ball and that makes the decisions that much harder for him.” Share on Facebook Share on Pinterestlast_img read more

MDA president says having parent firm in United States wont affect Canadian

first_imgMONTREAL – The president of Canadarm-builder MDA says setting up the company’s parent firm in the United States won’t have any impact on jobs in Canada.In October 2017, MacDonald Dettwiler and Associates, based in Richmond, B.C., became Maxar Technologies Ltd. after it acquired DigitalGlobe, an American satellite imaging company.Maxar’s headquarters were in San Francisco before recently moving to Westminster, Colo.At the time, MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates was also rebranded simply as “MDA”.The move came almost 10 years after the Conservative government moved in 2008 to halt the sale of MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates’ space technology division to Alliant Techsystems, an American company.Then-industry minister Jim Prentice said he was not satisfied the sale would be a net benefit for Canada.Mike Greenley, the head of the new MDA, says the company has been “very transparent and talked openly” about shifting the head office south of the border.He oversees all of the MDA lines of business and its 1,900 employees in Canada.“Nothing has moved and nothing is moving,” Greenley told The Canadian Press in a recent interview.“My job is to run it and grow it bigger in Canada, for Canada, and exporting from Canada to the rest of the world.“You have to export and access foreign markets in order to grow to scale,” because “Canada’s economy is only so big.”MDA’s Canadian operations include its surveillance and intelligence facilities in Richmond, Ottawa and Halifax; its robotics and automation plants in Brampton, Ont; and its satellite subsystems in Montreal.In an email to The Canadian Press, Innovation, Science and Economic Development Department spokesman Hans Parmar said, “MDA has indicated for several years its desire to grow in the U.S. market, which is the largest market.”But NDP science critic Brian Masse is worried about what he calls “the hollowing-out of decision-making” in Canada.“This has happened to some degree in the auto industry as we don’t even have Canadian presidents in some sectors anymore,” the MP for the Ontario riding of Windsor West said in an interview.Conservative science critic Matt Jeneroux says he’s seen the story before.Jeneroux pointed to the 2016 takeover of COM DEV International, a Canadian satellite equipment provider, by New Jersey-based aerospace giant Honeywell.“The same promises are made by Honeywell when it bought out COM-DEV, (but) 35 per cent of their employees at their Cambridge plant lost their jobs,” he noted.“In the fall of 2017, they announced they were laying off COM DEV employees due to a downturn in the space and satellite industry.”Jeneroux does not appear to be comforted that Greenley has said no jobs would leave Canada.“The Liberals seem to take this at face value, but just you look at what’s happened in the past and we’ve been losing jobs to the States,” he said.Greenley also said in the interview that finding growth for MDA in Canada would be helped by a new space strategy.“For that to happen something would have to move . . . in terms of folks trying to get an updated, documented, discussable space strategy,” he said.But the email from the federal department gave no indication as to when the Canadian space sector could expect to see a new plan.“Space is a critical part of Canada’s infrastructure and a strategic sector of our economy, so it is important that we take the time necessary to get it right,” Parmar wrote, adding that “more work needs to be done.”Jeneroux says the Canadian space industry is frustrated waiting for Bains to unveil a national strategy.“He made an announcement in November 2016 that a space strategy would be forthcoming and said the strategy would be released in June 2017,” he noted.“They (the Liberals) make these promises, but then they end up disappointing an entire industry.”Note to readers: This is a corrected version; a previous story said Hans Parmar was a spokesman for the ministerlast_img read more
