After ‘long’ coach’s speech, Williams gets by

first_imgPARIS (AP):Serena Williams was ahead, yes, but hardly at her best, when claps of thunder and a heavy downpour interrupted her third-round French Open match at a critical juncture.So during what turned out to be a delay of more than 21/2 hours right before a second-set tiebreaker yesterday against 26th-seeded Kristina Mladenovic of France, Williams met with coach Patrick Mouratoglou.”I spoke 10 minutes, which is far too long. Actually, at the end, I said: ‘Sorry. I spoke too long; much too long.’ Because a long speech is not a good speech; it has to be short and powerful,” Mouratoglou recounted later. “My point was just to make her think the way she thinks when she’s good, when she’s playing like Serena plays.”Did it work?”Just look at the score,” Mouratoglou said, “And, more than that, look at the way she did it.”Coming out of the locker room determined to dictate play more than she had been, Williams edged Mladenovic 6-4, 7-6 (10), a victory that set up a fourth-round matchup against a woman whose coaching consultant is the 34-year-old American’s former rival, Justine Henin.”Up until that point, I had not been playing my game. I was playing really defensive. It’s not me,” said the top-seeded Williams, who compiled a 5-2 advantage in winners in the tiebreaker. “So I just wanted to be Serena out there.”at stakeHer sister, Venus, seeded No.9, beat France’s Alize Cornet 7-6 (5), 1-6, 6-0 to reach the fourth round for the first time since 2010. And another American, No. 15 Madison Keys, got that far at Roland Garros for the first time with a 7-6 (3), 6-3 victory over Monica Puig.Quarter-final berths will be at stake in these matchups tomorrow: Venus vs No. 8 Timea Bacsinszky, Keys vs Kiki Bertens, No. 12 Carla Suarez Navarro vs Yulia Putintseva.Next up for Serena Williams is No. 18 Elina Svitolina of Ukraine, who was 0-7 against Ana Ivanovic before beating the 2008 French Open champion 6-4, 6-4.Svitolina, 21 and the winner of the girls’ title in Paris in 2010, is 0-3 against Williams.In men’s action, No. 1 Novak Djokovic finished his 6-2, 6-3, 6-3 victory over Aljaz Bedene just before nightfall, while No. 6 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga quit after seven games against Ernests Gulbis because of an injured right leg. Other winners: No. 7 Tomas Berdych, No. 11 David Ferrer, No. 12 David Goffin, No. 13 Dominic Thiem and No. 14 Roberto Bautista Agut.Thiem, 22, got past Alexander Zverev 6-7 (4), 6-3, 6-3, 6-3 to close in on his first Grand Slam quarter-final.While the draw set up a potential fourth-round match for Thiem against Rafael Nadal, the nine-time French Open champion’s withdrawal Friday because of an injured left wrist means that a far less daunting opponent awaits.Instead, Thiem faces 56th-ranked Marcel Granollers, who never has reached a major quarter-final either.”Against Rafa, I’m the underdog,” Thiem acknowledged. “Against Granollers, I’m probably the favourite.”last_img read more

Thompson, Praught impress in Doha

first_imgElaine Thompson looks unstoppable. Asafa Powell is still waiting for his 98th sub-10 seconds 100m time, and Aisha Praught got her name in the record books as the Diamond League circuit got going in Doha yesterday. As the temperature teased 40 degrees Celsius at the Qatar Sports Club ahead of the action on the track, Thompson brought some heat of her own, blazing to a 22.19 seconds win in the 200m ahead of a field that included world champion Dafne Schippers as well as Jamaicans Veronica Campbell-Brown and Simone Facey. Considering the -2.3 wind factor, yesterday’s run was a clear improvement on the 22.16 (+1.9) season-opening effort from last season in the 200m and shows that the double Olympic sprint champion is primed to continue her lordship in female sprinting. Schippers tried to rally as both athletes came off the bend in front but had no response to Thompson’s extra kick, and in the end, had to settle for second place in 22.45 ahead of Marie-Josee Ta Lou, 22.77. Facey ran fourth in 23.00 with Campbell-Brown next best in 23.09. For Thompson, it was all about execution and making the most of her first experience in Qatar, the host for the 2019 World Championships. “This is my first time in Doha, and my first race of the season. I just wanted to get the race right and see how far I am in the season, and I just wanted to execute a good race,” said Thompson, who will be looking to improve on her 200m silver medal won at the last World Championships in Beijing at this year’s event in London. DISAPPOINTED IN TIME Things weren’t so rosy for Powell, who despite crossing the line in second place in his second 100m of the season, was more disappointed that he was not able to stride closer to a magical 100 sub-10 seconds clocking in the event. Akani Simbine took an impressive win in 9.99 seconds – his sixth sub-10 seconds time of the season, with Powell crossing the line in 10.09. The Jamaican has now gone four races without a sub-10 clocking, and he thinks this time around, the wind was the enemy. “I’m not surprised coming in second. We’re only just beginning our season. I wanted to go sub-10, but couldn’t because of the wind,” he said pointing to the -1.2 m/s wind factor. Thid place went to Femi Ogunode, 10.13 with Justin Gatlin, 10.14, in fourth, and Andre De Grasee, 10.21 in fifth place. Jamaican distance runner Aisha Praught had reason to celebrate after she lowered the national record in the 3000m steeplechase, clocking 9:19.29 for eight place in the event. Hyvin Kiyeng Jepkemoi, 9:00.12, got the win ahead of Beatrice Chepkoech, 9:01.57 and Olympic champion Ruth Jebet, 9:01.99. “I am totally pleased to set the national record,” she told The Gleaner yesterday. “I really wanted to do it last year, but I could not quite pull it off. Today was a big day!” Praught is now the 37th fastest women ever in the event, and she replaced Mardrea Hyman’s 9:27.31 set in 2005. Megan Simmonds managed a 13.13 run, which was good enough for fifth place in the 100m hurdles with world record holder Kendra Harrison, 12.59, securing another commanding win. Cindy Roleder, 12.90, and Sherika Nelvis, 12.91 finishing second and third. Natoya Goule, 2:01.59, attacked the field in the first 400m of the women’s 800m but faded badly into eight place as Caster Semenya, 1:56.61 overpowered the field to register a big win; while Annsert White, 50.80, also found himself at the back of the pack in the men’s 400m hurdles event. This was won by hometown standout Abderrahaman Samba in 48.44 ahead of Kerron Clement 49.40 and LJ Van Zyl, 49.49. Steven Gardiner, 44.60, won the men’s 400m to continue his positive start, while Qatari star Mutaz Essa Barshim’s 2.36m clearance in the high jump secured his first win at the Doha Diamond League. Christian Taylor won the triple jump with 17.25m off the board.

The Creation of Evolutionism

first_imgA press release titled “The Evolution of Creationism” in a geology journal is just asking for a spoof.The Geological Society of America (GSA) posted the following press release on its publication, GSA Today:Throughout history, people have sought to understand how the world came to be and how it has changed over time. This curiosity has produced a rich legacy of science and philosophy and impacted and influenced religion and theology. In the November 2012 issue of GSA Today, David Montgomery of the University of Washington examines both the history of geology and of biblical views regarding Earth’s origins.Montgomery’s main premise is that throughout most of the past several hundred years, scientists and theologians engaged in extensive collaboration regarding issues like Earth’s age and origin. The common bond that sustained this rich exchange of ideas was a respect for reason and a trust in the scientific process.As modern science evolved, so did many shared questions and struggles regarding how to best understand Earth’s age as well as how new scientific findings harmonized with or conflicted with theological understanding as conveyed in works such as the Bible. These questions and struggles persist into the present, most notably in geology, where vast differences in the answers to such fundamental questions as “how old is this planet?” both correlate and contrast with some religious beliefs.In terms of Christian theology, the main problems that Montgomery discusses are Earth’s age and the role of a global flood (“Noah’s flood”) in geological history. While these issues—that the Earth is not over four billion years old, but is actually only a few thousand years old, and that most of the geological history recorded by rocks was formed as a result of Noah’s flood—are commonly raised by modern-day creationists, they have also been vigorously studied by both scientists and theologians over the past several hundred years.Montgomery shows that geologists have provided a vast array of evidence that refutes both a young age for Earth and a worldwide flood. These conclusions provoked significant debate among Christian writers during the early 1800s, but many acknowledged the validity of the scientific evidence. They subsequently adapted their view of creation as spelled out in the Bible, recognizing that it might be figurative instead of literal, and that Noah’s flood was likely a regional event that involved the Caspian or Black Sea.Modern-day creationism, according to Montgomery, developed from several influential efforts, beginning in the 1920s. The movement would revive the global (Noah’s) flood explanation for the geological record, resurrecting the older theory mainly in an effort to question scientific conclusions regarding the biological evolution of life on Earth.The creationists of the twentieth century—and those of today—evolved in order to reject a scientific basis for understanding of the history of our planet. They instead rely on a literal interpretation of Biblical accounts of creation.These arguments are effective. Montgomery points out that more than 40% of Americans believe Earth is less than 10,000 years old, despite overwhelming scientific evidence to the contrary. However, Montgomery hopes that by pointing to our longer-term history and mutual heritage of using scientific observations of the natural world to inform both secular and religious understanding, the relationship between science and religion can undergo further evolution, and faith in science can be restored.The press release was reproduced uncritically by PhysOrg and Science Daily.  The full article by Montgomery on GSA Today is open access.  See also the 8/14/2012 entry, “Rock’s Don’t Lie but Liars Rock.”This is what happens with one-party rule.  Instead of debate and reasoned discussion, you get one-sided rewritings of history.  The following shows how creationists might write the press release if they had influence at GSA:The Creation of Evolutionism [parody]Throughout history, people have offered thanks to God for the beauty of the world He created. This gratefulness has produced a rich legacy of religion and theology and impacted and influenced philosophy and science. In the November 2012 issue of CSA Today, Daniel Monotheist of the University of St. Paul examines both the Christian root of science and of materialistic views regarding Earth’s origins.Monotheist’s main premise is that throughout most of the past two thousand years, Biblical scholars and natural philosophers engaged in extensive collaboration regarding issues like Earth’s origin and age. The common bond that sustained this rich exchange of ideas was a respect for God-given reason and a respect for God’s Word.  This led to the rise of modern science, with stalwarts like Kepler, Newton and Boyle as shining lights.But as historical science degenerated in the last 230 years into atheism and skepticism, so did the rich legacy of scholarship, as skeptics struggled to re-interpret what was clearly evident in the world’s design.  They set out to rewrite Earth’s age in slow-and-gradual terms, and interpreted new scientific findings to harmonize with their unbelief.  Their motivation was to disparage the Bible, particularly the revelations given to Moses, and substitute their own speculations and call it science. These struggles persist into the present, most notably in geology, where vast differences in the speculations about such fundamental questions as “how old is this planet?” are used as weapons against some Biblical teachings.In terms of naturalist philosophy, the main targets of the new skeptics are Earth’s age and the role of a global flood (“Noah’s flood”) in geological history. While these issues—that the Earth is not over four billion years old, but is actually only a few thousand years old, and that most of the geological history recorded by rocks was formed as a result of Noah’s flood—are commonly mocked by modern-day evolutionists, they have also been vigorously defended by natural philosophers and theologians over the past two thousand years, but especially by modern theistic geologists who find overwhelming evidence for catastrophic deposition in the vast extent of flood-deposited strata and the explosive appearance of life in the fossil record.Monotheist shows that these Christian geologists have provided a vast array of evidence that defends both a young age for Earth and a worldwide flood. These conclusions provoked significant debate among Christian writers during the early 1800s, but many acknowledged the validity of the scientific evidence. Skeptics, however, subsequently adapted their view of geology as required by naturalistic philosophy, recognizing that the strata still might be interpreted in slow-and-gradual terms, using copious amounts of imagination and dogmatic adherence to naturalistic assumptions.Modern-day evolutionism, according to Monotheist, developed from several influential skeptics of the Bible, beginning in the 1780s, such as Buffon, Hutton and Lyell. The movement chose to reject the global (Noah’s) flood explanation for the geological record, resurrecting old anti-Biblical skepticism mainly in an effort to reinterpret the observations into a story about the biological evolution of life on Earth.  In this they were unwittingly fulfilling Peter’s prophecy that in the last days mockers would deny creation and the Flood.The hard-core evolutionists of the twentieth century—and those of today—gathered together into societies such as the Geological Society of America in order to reject a Biblical basis for understanding of the history of our planet. They instead rely on a literal interpretation of the words of Charles Darwin.These arguments are effective. Monotheist points out all the public schools teach that the earth is 4.5 billion years old, despite overwhelming scientific evidence to the contrary. However, Monotheist hopes that by pointing to our longer-term history and mutual heritage of using scientific observations of the natural world to illuminate Biblical understanding, and with increasing exposure of the evidence supporting catastrophism that comports with Biblical history, the relationship between science and religion can undergo further mutual reinforcement, and a return to true science can be restored.

Utility Will Test the Effectiveness of Smart Meters

first_imgWi-fi connected smart meters let utilities track how much electricity customers are using in real time, triggering warnings to cut back when demands on the grid are too high. Now, a Chicago utility has agreed to study whether the meters are effective in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.In a deal involving the Environmental Defense Fund, Commonwealth Edison, and the Illinois Citizens Utility Board, ComEd has agreed to test whether customers who have smart members use less electricity than customers who don’t have them. In a post at Midwest Energy News, E&E Publishing reports that ComEd will compare how electricity use differs hour by hour between customers with and without smart meters. If smart meter programs successfully prompt customers to shift their use of electricity to non-peak hours of the day, there would be less of a need to bring on power plants to meet peak demands and, consequently, fewer greenhouse gas emissions.“The ability to calculate the environmental benefits of clean energy investments like smart meters is critical to accelerating the new energy economy,” the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) said.The test is the result of a law passed by the Illinois state legislature in 2011 permitting ComEd and Ameren Corporation to get higher utility rates if they invested in advanced meters and met other conditions, E&E said. EDF and the Citizens Utility Board then petitioned the state’s Commerce Commission to require the utilities to measure greenhouse gas emissions as part of the deal. Peak time warningsComEd reports that it has installed nearly 2 million smart meters in its service area and plans to bring the total to 4 million by 2018.The utility offers smart meter customers a number of tools to monitor their use of electricity, ComEd spokeswoman Krissy Posey told GBA. Among them is the Peak Time Savings program in which customers are alerted by e-mail or text a day or two in advance of expected high loads during the summer. The warnings give customers a chance to dial back their use of electricity at a time when demand pushes costs higher. More than 110,000 customers are currently enrolled, and Posey said that collectively they saved nearly $400,000 last summer.Customers also can log onto their ComEd accounts and enroll in a program that alerts them when their use of electricity is greater than normal, get personalized tips on saving energy, and set savings goals, Posey said. ComEd also offers an hourly pricing program giving customers the option of using power when prices are at their lowest.The E&E report said that the groups spent several years trying to agree on how greenhouse gas emissions would be measured, but didn’t come to an understanding that all sides liked. Posey said that the Illinois Commerce Commission has yet to issue a final order on the monitoring program and that details of how it would work are still being ironed out.last_img read more

ScienceShot: Scientists Warn of Significant Harm From Ocean Acidification

first_imgThe oceans of the Pale Blue Dot are going to be a lot less hospitable to coral reefs and other marine life by the end of the century. That’s one of the worrying conclusions from a new expert report that summarizes problems from increasing acidity. Marine waters are becoming more acidic as they continue to absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. This will alter ocean chemistry and make it harder for corals to build their skeletons out of a mineral called aragonite. Corals prefer a saturation state greater than 3 (dark blue on map). Researchers have “high confidence” that coral reefs in the tropics are going to get eroded faster than they will build up, according to the report. But the team admits that in many situations, it’s hard to know exactly the scale or extent of the damage. The document, published by the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme, is intended to inform negotiations at the meeting of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Warsaw.See more ScienceShots.last_img read more

ISL 2019-20: Bengaluru FC, Kerala Blasters Battle as League Returns after International Break

first_img bengaluru fcfootballindian footballindian super league First Published: November 23, 2019, 9:07 AM IST Get the best of News18 delivered to your inbox – subscribe to News18 Daybreak. Follow News18.com on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Telegram, TikTok and on YouTube, and stay in the know with what’s happening in the world around you – in real time. Bengaluru: Bengaluru FC will host Kerala Blasters in a big-ticket clash as the Indian Super League 2019-20 returns after the international break on Saturday. The South Indian rivals will look to make the most of a charged atmosphere in front of expectant supporters at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium on Saturday and breathe life into their campaigns.Bengaluru and Kerala find themselves in the middle of the pack with the hosts in the fifth position with six points from four games, while the Kochi-based side are seventh with four points. Though Bengaluru are one of only three sides to remain undefeated in the ISL so far, they have only one win to their name. It came against another arch-rival, Chennaiyin FC, just before the international break.More importantly, Carles Cuadrat’s side found their scoring boots as they pumped three goals past Chennaiyin after managing only one in their first three matches. Captain Sunil Chhetri also opened his account for the season in that game.”I think we are working well from the start of the season. We could have won all the three games (first). I have good memories of playing Kerala and I hear it is also sold out tomorrow, so that’s great for Indian football. They are a top team and I hope it will be a great match,” said Cuadrat.Once again, the likes of Erik Paartalu and Raphael Augusto will be key with the former’s return from injury proving a huge shot in the arm for Bengaluru.”There are a lot of people who live in Bangalore who are from Kerala, so it adds a bit more to the rivalry. It’s important for us to put on a spectacle. We want to put on a show and make sure these fans come back week in and week out because that’s what’s important,” said Paartalu.The Blues’ defence, led by Juanan, has looked strong and they have conceded just one goal in four games – that too a penalty. There is a slight issue though for Cuadrat, given that Rahul Bheke is nursing a niggle he picked up during India’s World Cup qualifier against Oman earlier this week.Breaching that watertight backline will be a tough job for Eelco Schattorie’s Kerala Blasters who will count on the support from a considerable number of away fans who are expected at the Kanteerava.Kerala, after their opening day win against ATK, have struggled and are winless in three games. The ATK game preceded defeats against Mumbai City and Hyderabad FC which was followed by a stalemate against Odisha FC at home.Injuries to key personnel like Mario Arques, Raphael Messi Bouli and Jairo Rodrigues have not helped their cause.”The most important thing is that, as a club, we are trying to do our best. Unfortunately, all my main centre-backs are injured and in midfield, Mario Arques is also injured. I am also a realistic person, we are giving it our all with whatever we have in hand,” said Schattorie. last_img read more
