Mourinho admits he was in the wrong over training session

first_imgTottenham boss Jose Mourinho has accepted he was in the wrong for holding a one-on-one training session with midfielder Tanguy Ndombele in a public park in London.Mourinho was pictured on social media flaunting government rules by meeting up with the midfielder Tuesday, even though they kept to social distancing guidelines.Fellow Spurs players Davinson Sanchez and Ryan Sessegnon were spotted running side by side in a separate session, while Serge Aurier filmed himself on Instagram running alongside a friend. Topics : “I accept that my actions were not in line with government protocol and we must only have contact with members of our own household,” said the Portuguese manager.”It is vital we all play our part and follow government advice in order to support our heroes in the NHS and save lives.”London Mayor Sadiq Khan told the BBC the players and Mourinho should be leading by example.”My concern is people, particularly children, who might support Spurs or follow football may see these images, pick up a paper, watch the internet and think, well if it’s OK for them, why isn’t it OK for me?” he said.center_img The Premier League has been suspended since mid-March due to the spread of COVID-19.The British government has introduced a strict series of measures to prevent the spread of the virus and Tottenham have reminded players of their responsibilities.The club said last week they would be using the government’s furlough financial assistance program for non-playing staff, a move that was seen as controversial and attracted a lot of criticism.last_img read more

Ozuna hits 3 HRs in Braves’ 10-3 rout of Red Sox

first_img WATCH US LIVE Written By Marcell Ozuna hit three home runs in a game for the first time in his career and finished with six RBIs, leading the Atlanta Braves to a 10-3 rout of the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night.Ozuna, who was 3 for 5, hit a two-run homer in the first inning, a solo shot in the seventh and a three-run blast in the eighth. It was the eight-year veteran’s second multihomer effort in the last 10 games and the 10th of his career.“He’s got a really good idea what he’s doing at the plate,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said. “He’s been unbelievable for a four-week, five-week span here. That’s got the makings of a really monster 162-game season.”Ozuna hit his first two homers over the Green Monster in left before launching his last to deep center. Ozuna’s second homer was also his 1,000th career major league hit.“Yesterday, I get one hit and (Braves assistant trainer) Mike Frostad said ‘Only two more away,’” Ozuna said. “Today when we (got) here, I said ‘I got it.’ … He said ‘Go hit a homer.’ I said ‘I’m gonna try.’”Austin Riley hit a go-ahead RBI single in the sixth. Ender Inciarte, Dansby Swanson and Freddie Freeman each had an RBI for the Braves.Atlanta has won two straight after dropping three of five.Braves right-hander Ian Anderson (2-0) allowed two runs and struck out eight over six innings in his second big league start. The 22-year-old fanned six and took a no-hitter into the sixth in his debut against the New York Yankees last Wednesday before allowing a solo homer in a 5-1 win.“It was exciting,” said Anderson, who grew up as a Red Sox fan near the Massachusetts state line in Rexford, New York. “Definitely had even more adrenaline than I had the first time. A lot of nerves, too. But (it was) fun out there.”Alex Verdugo, Rafael Devers and Jackie Bradley Jr. each had RBI singles for Boston. Robert Stock (0-1) gave up two runs on three hits after Red Sox starter Ryan Weber allowed two runs on four hits over four innings.Boston had won two of three before a 6-3 loss to Atlanta on Tuesday.“That game was a lot better game than the score was,” Boston manager Ron Roenicke said. “It just got out of hand there at the end.”Riley hit a line-drive single with runners on second and third and nobody out to give the Braves a 3-2 lead. Inciarte beat out an infield single two batters later to double the lead.Swanson and Freeman each hit RBI singles before Ozuna’s third homer capped Atlanta’s five-run eighth.“It’s tough — you play hard, you play close and all of a sudden you have a blowout,” Roenicke said.Devers tied the game at 2-2 with a two-out single in the third after Verdugo’s RBI single two batters prior.RESET BUTTONEarlier Tuesday, the Red Sox’s official Twitter account posted a picture of a finger pressing a “reset” button on a keyboard with the caption “iykyk” — short for “if you know you know.”It was a nod to the team resetting its competitive balance tax for the 2021 season. After receiving backlash from fans, the team deleted the tweet and later posted, “You ever miss with a tweet? Same.”Boston had the majors’ sixth-highest projected payroll entering 2020 at $177,136,540.TRAINER’S ROOMBraves: LF Ronald Acuña Jr. (hamstring tightness) went through extensive running drills before the game but was held out of the lineup. Acuña is day-to-day and could return Wednesday. “He felt something yesterday. That was kind of what led to the caution today,” Snitker said. … 2B Ozzie Albies (right wrist inflammation) is on track to begin taking batting practice by the end of the week.Red Sox: LHP Kyle Hart tweaked his hip on a defensive play in the seventh inning, but stayed in the game. … DH J.D. Martinez (left hand) received treatment before the game and was expected to be available to pinch hit, but he did not enter the game. … LF Andrew Benintendi (right rib cage strain) is working on a treadmill and experiencing less pain but remains a ways away from baseball activities. “Unfortunately, this thing is slow like we thought it possibly could be,” Roenicke said. Roenicke said Benintendi might not return this season. … LHP Darwinzon Hernandez (left AC joint sprain) is a few days away from resuming baseball activities.UP NEXTBraves RHP Robbie Erlin (0-0, 6.00 ERA) is set to start Wednesday’s series finale in Boston. Red Sox LHP Mike Kickham will make his first MLB appearance since Sept. 13, 2014, either in an opener or long relief role.Image credits: AP LIVE TV Associated Press Television News COMMENTcenter_img SUBSCRIBE TO US First Published: 2nd September, 2020 09:28 IST FOLLOW US Last Updated: 2nd September, 2020 09:28 IST Ozuna Hits 3 HRs In Braves’ 10-3 Rout Of Red Sox Marcell Ozuna hit three home runs in a game for the first time in his career and finished with six RBIs, leading the Atlanta Braves to a 10-3 rout of the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday nightlast_img read more

Herbert Addo unfazed by sack reports

first_imgHearts of Oak head coach Herbert Addo is calm about reports concerning his long term future at the club as speculation intensifies.The former Inter-Allies boss has overseen an inconsistent spell for the Phobians which has seen them record only six victories out of nineteen matches.But he remains unfazed.“I’ve not heard about those stories from the club and I’m not worried at all about such reports. That’s the owner’s choice isn’t it, if they want to make a change,” he told Kumasi-based Sikka FMReports have indicated former Kotoko boss Didi Dramani has been lined up to replace the Hearts boss. These reports were further heightened when Didi Dramani was allegedly spotted in Wa watching a Hearts league match.But Addo once again turned a blind eye to these reports.  “I don’t live on rumours so I will pay little attention to them, after every match we hold a technical and management meeting to review and ascertain what went wrong or right and we are yet to do that after the Inter Allies match so I won’t start thinking about sack stories.”Hearts of Oak travel to Sunyani to face bottom placed BA United this weekend on matchday 20 in the league.–last_img read more

Scientific Referencing Perpetuates Myths

first_img(Visited 75 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Most scientific papers contain numerous references. Rather than enhancing scholarship, careless referencing can sometimes advance zombie science.Some theories deserve a quiet death. Unfortunately, they are kept on life support by the common practice of referencing in journal papers. Dead ideas re-emerge as zombies, parading around as if they never really died.A typical paper contains dozens—sometimes hundreds—of references. It’s doubtful any one author or co-author takes the time to read them all. Perhaps that boring task gets delegated to grad students or contributing authors. Is it possible, too, under the pressure of publish-or-perish deadlines, that scientists pad the references to impress editors? It can work like name-dropping, giving the appearance of reputation without the reality.Even if a scientist can claim to have read every reference in the paper, did he or she keep up on all the work published since? The sheer volume of journals and papers spewing forth daily makes it humanly impossible to be up to speed on every detail “corroborated” by a reference. The author can be trusting a broken reed that will pierce the hand of any man who leans on it.Case in point: “The Great Oxidation Event” (GOE), sometimes also called the “Great Oxygenation Event.” Scientists give names to theories for convenience, but used too often, they breathe life into dead words so theory-laden as to be forever subjective. The GOE is attractive as a way for marking the ‘evolution of photosynthesis’ and preparing Darwin’s way for the Cambrian Explosion—provided one believes in Darwinian evolution and billions of years. Nobody was present hundreds of millions of years ago, of course, when this GOE supposedly happened. Evidence for it is indirect, based on the interpretation of isotopes in rocks, which depend on other theories about dates, evolution, and geophysics. Convenient a vessel as it is, the GOE has run aground on the rocks of contrary evidence as to timing and extent. As we reported several times over the years, some scientists doubt that it ever happened. The only place the GOE may exist is in dead theories of old journal papers.Let’s see how one paper resurrects the GOE zombie. In Nature, Zerkl et al. put it in their headline: “Onset of the aerobic nitrogen cycle during the Great Oxidation Event.” The first sentence reads,The rise of oxygen on the early Earth (about 2.4 billion years ago)1…We pause to check that reference. It points to a paper from 2004 by Bekker et al. in Nature, “Dating the rise of atmospheric nitrogen.” Those authors confidently over-interpreted some rocks in South Africa as markers of the GOE. Much of the trouble with the GOE, however, came subsequent to 2004.10/18/2006: citing two 2006 papers in Nature, CEH noted serious misgivings about whether the GOE (1) occurred much earlier than thought (long before the ‘evolution of photosynthesis’), (2) whether oxygen fluctuated from time to time, and (3) even whether the GOE occurred at all.11/04/2008: Science magazine asked, “Great Oxidation Event Dethroned?” Re-interpretation of rocks led some researchers, citing “results [that] defy all expectations” to posit that oxygen arrived on earth much earlier than expected from a hypothetical GOE.9/29/2013: A paper in Nature worried about the implications of finding oxygen a billion years earlier than expected, including the necessity of accounting for the origin of photosynthesis that early as well (if the two are to be associated as cause and effect).But now in 2017, we find scientists once again tying their theory of the ‘aerobic nitrogen cycle’ to a dubious concept, the GOE, that may be a myth, relying on a 2004 paper. It not only foments zombie science, but builds a zombie house of cards, unable to bear the empirical weight expected of it. Yet Science Daily, like a co-conspirator, blindly reproduces a press release from Syracuse University (one co-author’s turf), “Breathing New Life into the Great Oxidation Event.” It’s treated as a living reality.To be sure, the authors did refer to more recent papers about the GOE, notably, one in Science by Luo et al. from 2016. But that paper admits this: “One underlying problem is that there has been no consensus about the definition of GOE despite the term having been used in the literature for decades.” Can anyone really trust their re-definition of the GOE now, based as it is on sulfur levels in pyrite minerals from three drill cores in South Africa? It’s supposed to have been a global event. Wouldn’t basic requirements of empirical adequacy call for a broader sample?Another look at that paper shows it relies on old references from the early 2000’s and even the 1990s and before. We begin to envision a pyramid of zombies leaning on broken reeds on top of other zombies leaning on broken reeds, standing on a three rolling drill cores in South Africa. Welcome to scientific progress.Another paper, this one in PNAS, treats the Great Oxygenation Event as a given, but dates it 100 million years earlier (2.42 billion years ago) than Luo’s team which had “precisely constrained” the GOE at 2.33 billion years ago. It’s a little hard to lean on this reed, though, when they say, “The exact timing of and relationships among these events are debated because of poor age constraints and contradictory stratigraphic correlations.” Entering their zombie on the racetrack, they present dates of rocks from the same region of South Africa. We see their first reference resurrecting a 2002 paper—a zombie raised back to useful service. They also refer to another scientific legend, the ‘Snowball Earth’ scenario, a hypothesis vulnerable to similar zombie-science criticisms (see 9/02/2013, “Snowball Earth: Manufacturing a Narrative”).Now solve this conundrum: New Scientist says that “Earth’s atmosphere may have been leaking oxygen onto the moon for billions of years.” That oxygen supposedly came from plants, not from the solar wind. An Osaka University scientist for Japan’s Kaguya lunar orbiter commented, “The ecosphere is stabilised by the moon and plants do photosynthesis to make oxygen, then that oxygen is transported to the moon.” Space.com explains why they think the oxygen ions found on the moon came from the Earth. Presumably the moyboy oxygen was being produced by algae, since multicellular plants did not ‘evolve’ till much later in the Darwinian scheme of things.Speaking of Darwin, CEH repeatedly runs across scientific papers where Reference #1 is to Charles Darwin’s Origin of Species.Like we always say, secular evolutionary science, with all its appurtenant geophysical framework requirements, is to be understood as job security for storytellers.last_img read more

Altech buys leading German STB maker

first_img12 September 2011South Africa’s Allied Technologies is to acquire SetOne, a German-based supplier of digital video broadcasting (DVB) products and solutions, in an effort to expand its international footprint and entrench relationships with its international partners.The deal is inclusive of all the intellectual property owned and already developed by SetOne.“This acquisition enhances our ability to diversify Altech Multimedia’s income streams by growing its international business footprint and reducing its reliance on locally generated business and is in line with the Altech Group’s strategy to increase non-SA revenue and profits,” Altech CEO Craig Venter said in a statement this week.Leading central European OEMSetOne was incorporated in 2005 and has since been positioned as one of the leading Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) companies in central Europe, with an especially strong presence in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.The company specialises in the domain of digital video broadcasting set-top box (STB) receivers, and has expertise and key skills in the supply chain design phase and product management of these products.Its strength as a preferred supplier is evidenced by its recent breakthrough into Spain, Italy and other neighbouring countries in Europe.“SetOne has established a significant track record in the STB repair and servicing business and is a preferred supplier in the central European region in terms of its OEM capabilities,” said Venter.“The company has produced profitable results since its inception and with this acquisition we are well positioned to further entrench our leadership in the telecommunications, multi-media and information technology sector.”Alliances with major key playersSetOne has built strategic alliances with major key players in the value chain of its products and services offering throughout Asia and Europe, which include license agreements with leading companies such as Sisvel, MPEG LA and Rovi.SetOne is especially strong in the management of a range of outsource manufacturing partners for the DVB-T/T2 products intended for the European retail free-to-air (FTA) markets, both satellite and terrestrial broadcast.The acquisition will enhance Altech Multimedia’s reach into international markets and further entrench its relationships with international partners regarding product development and management in these markets as well as leveraging established distribution channels and exploiting and cross-selling other business opportunities.“This acquisition complements Altech Multimedia’s broadband and broadcast product offerings to address convergence within the multimedia market and strengthens our service offerings,” said Altech Multimedia CEO Peter Balchin.Range of synergies between the twoAccording SetOne CEO Bartolomeo Caputo, the transaction brings together a range of synergies between the two companies that will be of enormous benefit to the European market.“Since the founding of our company in 2005, we have strived to provide creative and innovative products and reliable service to all our customers and business partners,” he said. “Now with Altech Multimedia we look forward to taking our business to the next level.”To preserve current efficiencies and standards, Altech will retain existing SetOne management and staff whilst it provides supporting administration services and strategic input to the company.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

South Africa’s Performance in the 2019 WEF Global Competitiveness Index improves

first_imgJohannesburg, Wednesday 09 October 2019 – Brand South Africa welcomes the release of the 2019 edition of the World Economic Forum (WEF) Global Competitiveness Index (GCI), which indicates South Africa’s over-all ranking improved position from 67 out of 140 nations in 2018, to position 60 out 141 nations in 2019.The WEF GCI is made up of 12 pillars, each covering a unique area of performance that ultimately influences the over-all competitiveness profile of the market. It offers insights into the prospects of 141 economies, providing unique acumen into the drivers of economic growth. Competitiveness has a direct impact on the reputation of countries for several reasons, but primarily plays a role in framing an understanding of the broader environments that impact on societal productivity and efficiency. Most importantly, competitiveness is a major factor that impacts Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) decisions.According to the GCI data, South Africa now ranks number 1 out of 141 nations for budget transparency, a significant ranking that is an illustration of the robust and transparent political governance system of the country, which is anchored on the Constitution of the Republic. This is also supported by the Open Budget Index, where South Africa ranks number 2 out of 103 nations, clearly highlighting South Africa’s high levels of transparency in its political governance system. South Africa’s ranking on judicial independence also improves markedly with fifteen positions in 2018 and currently stands at 33 out of 141 nations.South Africa’s over-all performance in the 2019 GCI is specifically driven by improvements in Institutions, Health, and the Product Market.The Institutions pillar improves from 69 out of 140 to 55 out of 141 – this is due to reputational damage in the area of governance in recent years;Health, also historically a weaker area of SA’s performance, improves from 125 to 118 in 2019;Product market improves from 74 to 69 in 2019.Speaking on the results, Brand South Africa’s General Manager for Research, Dr Petrus de Kock says; “Interestingly enough following on 2018, a year wherein local and global media carried extensive and mostly negative coverage on South Africa’s proposed Land reform policy, South Africa’s rankings in Property Rights & Quality Land Administration show improvement. This affirms the country’s strengthened competitiveness profile and a growing economy”.While there are notable improvements, it is also important to note that there are several indicators which show negative movement that calls for urgent interventions, especially in the era of 4IR”.Other areas that have negatively impacted South Africa’s performance include;The skillset of graduates declines from 85 to 102 out of 141;Ease of hiring foreign labour also declines from 102 to 123 out of 141;Attitudes towards entrepreneurial risk; the country also declines from 38 to 46 out of 141“The Financing for SMEs declines from 72 to 96/141 as well as the attitudes towards entrepreneurial. These are particularly concerning in a period of slow GDP growth, and continued emphasis placed on the development of entrepreneurship, and to increase support for SME development,” adds Dr De Kock.For the full report; World Economic Forum 2019.

Join us as we hear about how much he is looking forward to the event next week, how he is finding his new role and who we should watch out for in the series. How much are you looking forward to next week?It’s very exciting, it’s been a short but good preparation and it’s good that it’s come around really quickly. I’m very excited to go over to New Zealand and get playing as soon as we can. How were your two camps earlier this month?Very good, the first one in Brisbane was good, we set up the team and got a lot done. The second one in Sydney was about finishing off and tidying up a few areas, both were extremely successful. They were thoroughly enjoyed by players and staff, we’ve done everything we could have to make sure we are ready to go. How have you found the Australian Women’s Open coaching role so far?It’s been really good, it’s a bit different as I’ve got two assistants, usually you are lucky to get an assistant, but with Mick(Moussa) and Craig (Morrow) and Kim (Solman), they are doing heaps which frees me up to take a back seat and be the head coach. It’s been good that you can focus on a few key areas. What are you looking forward to most about next week?The Japan games will be good but looking forward to seeing the team play game one, I can’t wait to get on the field. There is a really good feeling in the group, they know what they need to do and I just want to see the girls play the way they’ve trained, that’s the most exciting thing for me. Who has impressed you so far in the lead up and who should we watch out for?Laura Peattie has trained really well, Hannah Dyball and Kimmy Sue See are three I think will play really well, those three will be important to us. You’ve got a lot of young talent in your team, how important is the Australian Youth program for the Women’s Open team?The Youth program is very important for what we do in the Women’s program. It continues our production line of Women’s Open players, with that youth coming through it keeps us able to regenerate the side quickly. We’ve got seven debutants in the Women’s, Yasmin’s (Meakes) obviously played Mixed. Hayley Maddick is making her Australian debut at this event, how excited are you to see her play?I’m extremely excited, she’s followed a different path to everyone else really. It’s a good message to all players, that if you didn’t play (Australian) Youth your career isn’t over, if you persevere and sacrifice you can still make it, even if you didn’t play Youth. I really like the story of Hayley Maddick and how she’s got to where she is. She wasn’t one of those decorated juniors that made every state and Australian Youth team, she came through the hard way and has had to persevere to get where she is and that’s a good story for a lot of players that mature later and don’t learn about themselves until later on. Lizzie Campbell was announced as captain last week, how much are you looking forward to seeing her in this role?I’ve been fortunate enough to coach Lizzie for a while at club level and regional level. She’s an outstanding leader, I’m looking for her to do exactly the same thing (at Australian level). She is very insightful, team orientated, has a great heart towards the team and that’s one of the key reasons she got the captaincy. The way she leads the group and talks is a real positive for us and it’s good to go into the Trans Tasman with her as my captain. We’ll be keeping you up-to-date with all of the latest news, information and results from the 2016 Trans Tasman series on our website and social media channels, so you won’t miss any of the action:last_img read more
