Jacks’ women in exhibition action tonight

Posted on by

first_imgTake a look at the 2018-19 Humboldt State women’s basketball roster and three things immediately stand out: The size added to what was a, problematically at times, short 2017-18 roster, the lack of depth on this year’s 8-person roster and the absence of the Jacks’ leading scorer from a year ago, Tyla Turner.“It’s unfortunate, she was a big part of what we did last season,” Humboldt head coach Michelle Bento-Jackson said. “But, she is no longer with our team.”Turner was dismissed from the team …last_img

Cold Dinosaurs Resembled Warm Dinosaurs

Posted on by

first_imgCold dinosaurs were just like warm dinosaurs, scientists have found.  Species living in the Antarctic, with up to six months of winter darkness, show no major differences in bone structure than those who lived in temperate climates.  This was a surprise that falsified earlier studies.  Whatever adaptations the high-latitude dinosaurs had did not show up in their bone structure. Holly Woodward, Montana State doctoral candidate, examined bone tissues from Australian dinosaur fossils that were thought to reside within the Antarctic Circle when the creatures lived.  The bones of the dog-sized ornithopods and theropods studied showed annual growth rings, like those of temperate-climate dinosaurs, but no evidence of hibernation.  “If we were trying to find evidence of dinosaurs doing something much different physiologically, we would expect it to be found in dinosaurs from an extreme environment such as the South Pole,” she said. “But based on bone tissues, dinosaurs living within the Antarctic Circle were physiologically similar to dinosaurs living everywhere else” (source: PhysOrg).  The paper by Woodward and colleagues was published in PLoS One.1 Well-known dinosaur researcher Jack Horner commented, “I think the most important finding is that polar dinosaurs don’t seem to be any different than any other dinosaurs in respect to how their bones grew.”  Woodward found a way to credit the unexpected finding to evolution: “This tells us something very interesting; that basically from the very start, early dinosaurs, or even the ancestors of dinosaurs, evolved a physiology that allowed an entire group of animals to successfully exploit a multitude of environmental conditions for millions of years.”  See also the 03/29/2004 entry. Update 08/09/2011: PhysOrg reported the discovery of multiple trackways of polar dinosaurs in Victoria, Australia.  The tracks were found in a flood plain.  According to the article, this indicates it was “period of pronounced global warming, about 105 million years ago.” 1. Woodward, Rich, Chinsamy and Vickers-Rich, “Growth Dynamics of Australia’s Polar Dinosaurs,” PLoS ONE 6(8): e23339. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0023339. Let’s correct that last sentence:  This tells us something very interesting; that basically from the very start, early evolutionists, even the Father of evolutionary theory, came up with a plot line that allowed an entire group of scientists to successfully exploit a multitude of contradictory data for 150 years. The millions of years are fiction.  Wouldn’t dinosaurs living near the South Pole for millions of years develop some spectacular changes?  Wouldn’t they show a gradation in features from temperate to antarctic latitudes?  They didn’t.  Evolution wins anyway.  A neutral observer might think creationists could score a point here, that the pre-Flood climate was more uniform, but no; evolutionists have a wild card: the ability to invoke miracle talk.  From the very start, Woodward tells us, dinosaurs “evolved a physiology that allowed an entire group of animals to successfully exploit a multitude of environmental conditions for millions of years.” Yes, children; dinosaurs evolved their own physiology.  They got together and had an engineering session.  They reasoned together, croaking that if they would just develop certain features of their bones and musculature and other systems, they could wander all over the earth and thrive for millions of years.  And you, too, children, can follow their example.  Just DON’T call it INTELLIGENT DESIGN!  That is forbidden!  Now, go out and evolve yourselves.  Pick your mutations very carefully with your eyes blindfolded and your ears covered up.  If you win the lottery, you can live at the Sahara or Antarctica without changing clothes.  Good luck!(Visited 24 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

The new ministers and deputy ministers were due to be sworn into office on Monday. The following deputy ministers were appointed: 1 November 2010 South African President Jacob Zuma has announced a major Cabinet reshuffle, appointing a host of new ministers and deputy ministers as part of a concerted effort to improve and accelerate service delivery in the country. Announcing the changes in Pretoria on Sunday, Zuma said that, 17 months since his inauguration as President, the process of reconfiguring government and putting systems in place to change the way the country’s administration works had been completed. During this time, he said, the government had studied the functioning of the current administration in order to ascertain what worked and what needed to be changed or strengthened. “We have taken a long and hard look at some of the departments with a view to strengthening some ministries,” Zuma said. “We have noted that a few of them require the addition of deputy ministries to assist ministers in carrying out their responsibilities.”New faces in Cabinet Zuma’s Cabinet reshuffle is as follows:center_img Radhakrishna “Roy” Padayachie replaces Siphiwe Nyanda as minister of communications.Bathabile Dlamini replaces Edna Molewa as minister of social development.Malusi Gigaba replaces Barbara Hogan as minister of public enterprises.Paul Mashatile replaces Lulu Xingwana as minister of arts and culture.Gwen Mahlangu-Nkabinde replaces Geoff Doidge as minister of public works.Edna Molewa replaces Buyelwa Sonjica as minister of water and environmental affairs.Lulu Xingwana replaces Noluthando Mayende-Sibiya as minister of women, children and persons with disabilities.Fikile Mbalula replaces Makhenkesi Stofile as minister of sports and recreation.Mildred Oliphant replaces Membathisi Mdladlana as minister of labour.

As Technorati Falters, PostRank Launches New Blog Ranking Tools

Posted on by

first_imgDisclosure: PostRank is a sponsor of the forthcoming ReadWrite Real-Time Web Summit. It’s also one of our favorite services on the web. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting marshall kirkpatrick Tags:#news#web Blogsearch data has been a consistent problem for PostRank, both Technorati and Google Blogsearch data has been inconsistent for the company. PostRank says it will be launching its own trackback discovery service shortly.While some meme-tracking services struggle with niches where blogs don’t heavily link to eachother, PostRank says that by tracking multiple forms of user interaction it has captured data that closely resembles what can be found from services tracking absolute web traffic to individual sites.Last month PostRank released a new analytics tool that displays social media engagement on top of Google Analytics data. The new APIs will allow 1000 requests a day for free for noncommercial use, commercial licenses are available as well. Social media analytics firm PostRank has released two Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) that will alow developers to track reader engagement in any group of blogs or around any single link with just 15 seconds of latency. Technorati’s announcement last week that it is scaling back and changing its blog ranking activities, and putting new emphasis on in its blog advertising network, prompted PostRank to launch their APIs now.The same API used for ranking by the AdAge 150 and the Atlantic Monthly’s new political blogger leaderboard is thus now generally available. Determining the most-closely watched bloggers on niche topics is something a lot of people want to do for a wide variety of reasons – when that determination can be made programatically you can jump into the center of a conversation quickly.PostRank looks at any RSS feed it’s given and scores all the items in those feeds for number of comments left, inbound links, times bookmarked in Delicious, being shared on Twitter and several related metrics. The company says it has agreements with many services to have data pushed to them and queries the Delicious endpoint themselves every 1 second, for example.Some good sample lists are Postrank CTO Ilya Grigorik’s favorite a href=”http://www.postrank.com/user/igrigorik/topic/cloud”>cloud computing blogs or the general list of top design blogs. The new APIs will make it easy to build lists around any topic or group and display that data on other sites.center_img 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts last_img read more
