Results were based on about 5,600 completed records from employees of 26 clubs. Samples were obtained on April 14 and 15.The start of the baseball season has been delayed because of the virus outbreak. There’s no timetable for when the season might begin.Sixty people tested positive in the raw data, and adjustments were made for false positives and false negatives.One of the study’s leaders says the survey had a 0.5% false positive rate and demonstrates MLB employees have been less affected than their surrounding communities have been.In other developments related to the coronavirus pandemic: Associated Press — The British government says tennis courts and golf courses in England can reopen starting Wednesday, but people can only play with members of their own household. Gyms and swimming pools remain closed, although swimming in the sea or lakes will be allowed. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson gave no indication when professional sports can resume competition. Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland can set their own stance on tennis courts and golf courses, and they have already indicated a more stringent version of the lockdown will be maintained.— The president of the University of Virginia says he hopes college football can be played this fall, but he doesn’t expect it to seem like “normal football seasons.” James Ryan told CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday that athletic director Carla Williams and football coach Bronco Mendenhall are committed to a safe return to play. But Ryan says nothing will proceed until medical officials say it’s safe to resume workouts. Ryan says school officials are taking things day by day. He says students need to be back on campus before football can begin.— The Spanish soccer league is not changing its plan to resume competing after five players from clubs in the first and second divisions tested positive for COVID-19. The league confirmed the positive tests on Sunday but said it was not going to alter the practice protocol that got underway last week. Players from most clubs began individual training sessions on Friday after nearly two months of confinement because of the coronavirus pandemic.— A player for English Premier League team Brighton has tested positive for the coronavirus as clubs prepare for talks on how to resume competition during the pandemic. The southern England club told The Associated Press there is no need for other members of the squad or coaches to self-isolate since players have only worked in isolation when at the training base. The Premier League has government support for “Project Restart” and it will be trying to secure agreement among the 20 clubs on the plans during a conference call with them on Monday.— America’s Cup teams are returning to the water in varying degrees nearly two months after the coronavirus pandemic forced the shutdown of what would have been an impressive global road show for sailing. Defending champion Emirates Team New Zealand has returned to training on Auckland’s Waitemata Harbor with its half-size test boat after a mandatory lockdown was lifted.

DPS to roll out TipSubmit cell app Saturday

first_imgIn an effort to improve security on campus, the Dept. of Public Safety plans to unveil a new smart phone application Saturday for reporting anonymous tips about disorderly conduct or crimes.Submit · The app sends anonymous tips directly to the Dept. of Public Safety. – Photo Illuustration by David LowensteinTipSubmit is specifically intended for use during football games and will be unveiled before the first football game of the year, DPS Capt. David Carlisle said. It is only available for Android phones and iPhones.Carlisle said it will be easier to use than the current anonymous tip service, Trojans Care 4 Trojans, which allows students to call or text both a communications center that forwards messages to relevant organizations in the USC community.The new app also serves thousands of communities, universities and law enforcement agencies around the country, including the University of California San Diego, California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Opisbo and Los Angeles City College.The new app will allow users to contact DPS directly with information. It is formatted so users can also see if an incident has already been reported to DPS.“We think the easier we make it, the more people will use it,” Carlisle said. “It is more likely people will use [the new system].”Some students said taking pictures of someone might look strange.“It may look kind of suspicious if you start taking pictures of an incident,” said Kevin Koeller, a freshman majoring in business administration. “Plus it might make things worse if someone sees you taking pictures of them.”Several students also said they believed having this smart phone application would allow more incidents to be reported.“Our generation is very hands-on and connected,” said Dani Haberman, a sophomore majoring in theatre. “[Having the app] at your fingertips will incline more people to report incidents.”The app eliminates the need to use the current anonymous tip service through text messages or by telephone, which many students do not utilize.“More people will use the app, because it seems like it will be very fast and easy,” said Monroe Ekilah, a sophomore majoring in computer engineering and computer science. “I haven’t sent in an anonymous tip because I don’t know the number [for Trojans Care 4 Trojans].”The photo feature on the app will instantly provide DPS with photographical evidence for neutralizing incidents.“[I believe] the ability to submit photographs will be helpful for DPS,” said Karina Garcia, a senior majoring in Spanish. “[It] will allow DPS to know about the incident beforehand and how [they should] handle it.”TipSubmit is available for free download on application markets.last_img read more

NFL: Antonio Brown could be in ‘breach of contract’ if he won’t play in new helmet

first_imgAntonio Brown likely won’t get anywhere with the NFL when it comes to playing in his old helmet.The Raiders receiver reportedly said “he would hold the league liable” if he were injured while playing in a new helmet, adding that he wants to continue to play in his old one. While the NFL didn’t mention Brown by name, Brown is the only one to have threatened to not play because of the helmet requirement. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady also has issues with the new helmet, but said on WEEI Radio that he doesn’t “have much of a choice” except to wear it.”You get used to the same helmet for a long period of time. My last helmet, I wore it the last four Super Bowls, so it was a pretty great helmet for me. I hated to put it on the shelf,” he said. “It’s kind of what I’m dealing with.”The Schutt Air Advantage helmet, which is what Brown wants to wear, was discontinued in 2011 and is 12 years old. In addition to NOCSAE certification, the NFL doesn’t approve of helmets older than 10 years, according to CBS Sports. However, the helmet Brown is used to playing in has been deemed outdated by the league. Even though Brown reportedly said he won’t play unless he can use the old helmet, the NFL is standing firm in having all players use new helmets and said any player who doesn’t play or practice because of this issue could be breaching his contract.”The player can’t practice or play in games with equipment that’s not approved,” NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy said in a statement. “If he doesn’t play or practice he is in breach of his contract and doesn’t get paid.” Related News Tom Brady: Don’t read anything into Boston-area home being for sale Antonio Brown threatens to hold NFL liable if he’s injured wearing new helmet, report says McCarthy added that NFL policy is that helmets have to be certified by the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment and that the organization doesn’t certify equipment that is more than 10 years old.The player can’t practice or play in games with equipment that’s not approved.

In the Beginning, Hydrogen: Was It Miller Time?

first_imgA press release from University of Colorado says that the spark-discharge experiments of Stanley Miller in the 1950s (see 05/02/2003 entry) might be relevant again.  Why?  Researchers used new models to estimate the amount of hydrogen in the early earth’s atmosphere, and came up with numbers 100 times higher than before.  If hydrogen did not escape as fast as scientists have thought, it might have composed 30 to 40% of the earth’s atmosphere.    After the initial enthusiasm of the Miller experiment, scientists began to realize that the early earth’s atmosphere was not “reducing” (hydrogen rich) and contained more carbon dioxide.  Nitrogen and carbon dioxide do not produce the amino acids and other building blocks of life in Miller-type experiments.  But if the model of these scientists is correct, hydrogen might have stayed around long enough to contribute organic molecules to the early oceans.  This would mean the old primordial soup icon may be back in business.  In Science Express, their abstract states, “The organic soup in the oceans and ponds on the early Earth would have been a more favorable place for the origin of life than previously thought.”  (Emphasis added.)Give them a universe filled with organic soup.  Concentrate it and stir it and feed it lots of energy.  It won’t help.  Life will not crawl out.  To convince yourself once and for all, read our online book that climaxes in chapter 7 with the calculation for getting just one simple, usable protein molecule by chance under ideal conditions, even with incredibly generous concessions to make it easier for chance to succeed.  This is not just one contrived calculation by one individual: the same conclusion has been reached repeatedly, independently, by numerous scientists, including Fred Hoyle and even Carl Sagan.  Those who continue to believe it realize that it is hopeless to expect a primitive cell by chance alone, so they jump to the next fallacy by inserting natural selection where it doesn’t belong: i.e., before a complex, self-replicating system existed (see ch. 5).    Everyone in the field knows how improbable it is to get a protein, RNA or DNA molecule by chance, yet they continue to hope against hope that simple molecules might have gotten organized into self-replicating machines if just the ingredients were present.  Phillip Johnson once pointed out how the believers in chemical evolution always focus on getting the right chemicals, but have no idea about where the information came from.  Without recognizing the vital necessity of information in the origin of life, this meager attempt to breathe hydrogen gas into the Miller myth is too little, too late.  Materialists need to get off their chemical soup diet and learn to handle the meat of information theory.(Visited 12 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Microbes Talk More than People Do

first_imgHow Intelligent Design Explains What Evolutionary Theory Missesby Randy J. Guliuzza, P.E., M.D.Communication seems to be a basic element of all ecological relationships. Humans and animals communicate amongst each other in many ways—even when they do not share a common language. Interesting new research out of the Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO-KNAW) documents that communication even occurs between different kinds of micro-organisms. They have discovered some of the system elements showing how some bacteria and fungi utilize volatile organic compounds (VOCs), known as terpenes (7/23/16), as a medium to convey communication between each other. This discovery formed the basis of NIOO’s surprising press release headline, “The world’s most spoken language is…Terpene.”Research leader Paolina Garbeva’s team discovered that a soil-dwelling bacterium, Serratia plymuthica PRI-2C, responds by becoming motile and producing a terpene of its own, sodorifen, when exposed to VOCs emitted by the fungus Fusarium culmorum. [1]The world’s most spoken language is…Terpene. Micro-organisms communicate with each other – and the rest of the world – through smells.—NIOO press releaseMicroorganisms in soil appear capable of sensing changes in ratios of VOCs in their environment, and then self-adjust appropriately. Previous studies confirmed that VOCs are used as signaling molecules (a.k.a. “infochemicals”) for inter-species microbial communications. The research team investigated how VOCs are “perceived as signals” within microorganism relationships and then identify the regulatory genes and pathways involved in a response. The rhizosphere isolate S. plymuthica was grown either exposed or unexposed to VOCs emitted by F. culmorum. The bacterial transcriptome and proteome were analyzed under each situation to identify the molecular basis of the bacterial response to fungal VOCs.Using sophisticated biomolecular sequencers and sensors, they found S. plymuthica differentially expressed genes and proteins related to chemotaxis, motility, signal transduction, energy metabolism, the cell envelope, the terpene sodorifen, and several others. The production of sodorifen is likewise detected by F. culmorum and is “involved in this bacterial-fungal conversation.”The experiment is well-designed and the team employed impressive techniques to accurately isolate their results. Therefore, they conclude that “fungal volatile compounds induce production of” these differentially expressed compounds in S. plymuthica.What Needs ExplainingBut, have they arrived at a precise conclusion? Can a fungus really “induce” the expression of anything out of a bacterium given that the fungus has no access to the bacterium’s regulating elements controlling its gene products? The conclusion is misleading despite using rigorous techniques because key system elements that need to be identified or described to present a complete and accurate conclusion are omitted from their explanations. Their omissions are not uncommon in evolutionary scientific literature because the functions of organisms are not analyzed as if they were intelligently designed.The researchers observe a ubiquitous phenomenon that needs explaining: “interactions and communication among organisms are central to understanding any ecosystem. The essential role of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the communication with other organisms, also known as infochemicals, has been acknowledged for more than 30 years”. How can two distinct independent entities actually work together? Why is a chemical compound produced by one entity “information” or “perceived as signals” to another entity? Typically, a completely unsubstantiated narrative, “coevolution,” is inserted to plug the knowledge gap.The Nature of an InterfaceHowever, in order for two distinct independent entities to work together, they must be connected by an interface system. That some interface or bridging mechanism is an absolute for any interactions and communication to happen was recently reported in the Creation Research Society Quarterly. [2] Though they do not discuss any of the elements, in Schmidt’s report, both the fungus and the bacterium must have an interface with three indispensable interface elements:Authentication mechanisms to differentiate self and non-self entities.Protocol rules and processes governing exchanges of information and resources.A common medium of conditions mutually accessible to both entities.These three well-matched elements constitute the minimal interacting parts needed to attain the basic function of an interface. Removal of any one of the parts causes an interface system to effectively cease functioning.Thus, the control of self is always through its own innate systems. The result is self-adjustments upon detection of changed conditions (either internal or external.) Therefore, control of S. plymuthica when exposed or unexposed to VOCs emitted by F. culmorum is not by violating the distinct boundaries of S. plymuthica and directly manipulating its systems. F. culmorum produces a product, in this case VOCs, which is released into the environment (the common medium with S. plymuthica.) Protocols within S. plymuthica have specified these VOCs to be a stimulus, and on its external boundary is has a detector specific for those VOCs, while other protocols specify how to self-adjust the expression of its gene products. S. plymuthica becomes motile and produces a terpene of its own, sodorifen, which it releases into the common medium detected by F. culmorum—which it has specified to be a stimulus, augmented with the necessary specified sensor, and also self-adjusts according to its internal protocols—enabling this “bacterial-fungal conversation.”Can an Interface Evolve?Interfaces are hard to explain through an iterative process of death and survival, since the information within each entity functions in a way to foresee the outcome desired for each entity that will result from the relationship. These outcomes are a particular and necessary consequential end product of its own internal processes which start after it detects specific conditions (i.e., specified stimuli) by another non-self system. When Schmidt concludes that “fungal volatile compounds induce production of…”, she mistakenly moves from an exposure to a response—and skips all the vital system elements in between which actually explain how the conversation can happen.Schmidt, R. et al. 2017. Fungal volatile compounds induce production of the secondary metabolite Sodorifen in Serratia plymuthica PRI-2C. Scientific Reports. 7(862): 1-14. DOI:10.1038/s41598-017-00893-3 ]Guliuzza, R. J. and F. Sherwin, 2016. Design Analysis Suggests That Our “Immune” System Is Better Understood as a Microbe Interface System. Creation Research Society Quarterly. 53 (2):27-43.The conclusions from the research by Schmidt et al could have been better informed through an understanding of intelligent design. In human-designed entities, 100% of functional causality originates from within the object designed. When seeking to discern the true cause for the interplay of elements found between organisms, intelligent design methodology describes all, but only tangible, system elements. By neither omitting nor concocting anything that might confuse accuracy, intelligent design methodology helps prevent biological causality from being mis-ascribed to mystical expressions of environmental agency producing an unsubstantiated outcome such as coevolution.Dr. Randy Guliuzza is National Representative for theInstitute for Creation Research (ICR).

Manchester City paint Premier League blue with 2nd title in 3 years

first_imgSamir Nasri and Vincent Kompany scored the goals for Man CityManchester City won the Premier League for the second time in three seasons on Sunday, completing its campaign with a comfortable 2-0 victory over West Ham that lacked any of the drama of its previous title.The Engineer Who Fixed Man City’s WoesUnlike the stoppage-time comeback required in the 2012 title decider, goals either side of halftime by Samir Nasri and Vincent Kompany provided a more serene end to what had been an exhilarating season.”You can’t repeat what happened last time,” City goalkeeper Joe Hart said. “This year, we’ve really come on strong at the end when we needed to.”Two years ago, City won the title on goal difference ahead of neighbor Manchester United after coming from behind to beat Queens Park Rangers on the final day. Sunday’s victory, though, meant Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Newcastle at Anfield was meaningless as City finished two points above the Merseyside club.As soon as the final whistle was blown, thousands of fans flooded onto the Etihad Stadium pitch, setting off blue flares. For a club that has spent so much time in the shadow of United – last year’s champion – it was just the fourth time in its 134-year history that fans could celebrate a league title.Just 15 years ago, City was playing in the third tier of English football, but the club’s fortunes were transformed after the influx of Abu Dhabi cash following a 2008 takeover.Making this victory all the sweeter is the fact that United, which beat City to the title by 11 points last May, ended this campaign in seventh place after imploding in the post-Alex Ferguson era.advertisementAlthough City spent just 15 days at the summit during a campaign when the lead changed hands 25 times, Manuel Pellegrini’s side surged to the top when it mattered most. The 60-year-old Chilean is ending his first season in English football as a double winner, having already won the League Cup victory over Sunderland in March.However, the league title looked out of reach for City just weeks ago after losing to Liverpool at Anfield. However, Liverpool collapsed toward the end with a loss to Chelsea and a draw at Crystal Palace which meant City only needed a draw at the Etihad to secure the title.But after an edgy start, Nasri scored with a shot from outside the area in the 39th minute and Vincent Kompany added the second from close range shortly after the break to let fans celebrate for much of the second half.”Liverpool’s game against Chelsea, I think that’s the twist of the season,” Nasri said.All City required was a draw, but after an edgy start this energetic and attacking team seized on the opportunity to finish the season in style. Against an uninspiring West Ham, City was in complete control, calmly knocking the ball around the pitch.However easily City unpicked the West Ham defense, finding a route to goal was proving more difficult. David Silva, so dynamic in this title-winning side, lashed the ball over from distance and Aleksandar Kolarov had a long-range strike tipped over by goalkeeper Adrian.But the goal that settled nerves in the stands came in the 39th minute, with Yaya Toure teeing up Nasri, who took two touches before curling the shot into the net off the inside of the post.Although Silva was denied by the woodwork in stoppage time, City’s second came just four minutes into the second half. From a corner, the ball bounced off striker Edin Dzeko, and the unmarked Kompany swept in City’s 102nd league goal this season from close range.The captain slid across the pitch in celebration, and the party truly started in the stadium. Unlike the rollercoaster season finale against Queens Park Rangers here two years ago, it was job done for City.West Ham was never going to spoil these celebrations, and City is at the pinnacle of English football once again. The challenge now is retaining the trophy for the first time, and replicating the electrifying domestic form in Europe to conquer the Champions League.These title celebrations, though, could be short-lived in the City boardroom, with UEFA on the verge of imposing sanctions on the club for overspending in breach of Financial Fair Play rules.last_img read more
