Besiktas 1-0 Tottenham: Wasteful Spurs finish second-best in Group C

first_img Tottenham look dejected in the Europa League Tottenham were made to rue some wasteful finishing as they slumped to a 1-0 defeat against Besiktas at the Ataturk Stadium.Cenk Tosun’s predatory finish on the hour mark means the Turkish club climb above Mauricio Pochettino’s side at the summit of Group C.It’s a damaging blow to Spurs’ Europa League ambitions, as the north London club could now be drawn against a side eliminated from the Champions League in the last-32.The visitors enjoyed early possession and, with it, pressure on the Turkish defence, but Nacer Chadli’s fizzing cross was too high for the unmarked Roberto Soldado.And, after suspension of play due to floodlight failure, Chadli and Soldado were involved once more. First, the former dragged a tame effort into the hands of Tolga Zengin, before the ex-Valencia striker missed a gilt-edged chance; scuffing Younes Kaboul’s knock-down from six yards out on 16 minutes.Mousa Dembele provided some much-needed quality with a neat turn and pass through to Soldado, although the 29-year-old’s shot was well blocked. Tottenham did have the ball in the back of the net moments later, but Chadli’s effort was ruled out for offside.The hosts had to wait until the 29th minute for their first meaningful effort when Olcay Sahan profited from a Kaboul stumble, but lacked composure with a wild effort. At the other end, Ersan Gulum was forced into an acrobatic clearance to prevent Soldado’s stabbed cross from finding Paulinho in the box.There was an evident increase in tempo from Pochettino’s side after the restart, but they lacked the guile and penetrative play required to break the deadlock.Direct play down the left from Danny Rose ten minutes into the second half caused problems for the hosts’ keeper, before Kyle Walker’s deep cross was bravely cleared by Necip Uysal.But Besitkas sparked into life on 60 minutes, taking the lead through Tosun’s close-range finish after rattling the crossbar with a rasping drive seconds earlier. The 23-year-old capped of a clinical one touch move as Gökhan Töre’s deep cross was pulled back across goal by Sahan.Soldado missed the chance to pull Spurs level – skewing a volley wide after Chadli’s creative flick – before Kerim Koyunlu and Jose Sosa squandered two excellent chances for the hosts.But, after another farcical floodlight failure deep into stoppage time, Tottenham did nothing to suggest they would clinch an equaliser as they laboured to defeat, leaving Pochettino with much to ponder ahead of a busy Christmas schedule. 1last_img read more

TICKET HOLDER REVEALS IT TOOK HIM HOURS TO CONVINCE WORKMATES THEY WON LOTTO

first_imgJames Bradley, with the winning ticket, and his fellow winners.The holder of the lotto ticket which scooped a whopping €5M for a Donegal call-centre syndicate has revealed his co-workers refused to believe they had won the fortune.James Bradley is renowned as a practical joker.So when he tried to telephone his co-workers at Forward Emphasis International in Malin Head to say they had won Wednesday night’s lotto, nobody believed him. In fact, it took him a number of hours to convince the others they were in the money and had scooped €375,000 each.James, 28, revealed “I started ringing around the others in the syndicate to tell them the good news. As you can imagine, I was on a complete high and couldn’t wait to break the news to them.“However, none of them would believe me, they were just like, ‘aye good man Jimmy, do you think we were born yesterday’!“Other members of the syndicate sarcastically said ‘Ah that’s great Jimmy, just great’. It was only after three hours of persistent calls and texts, that some of the members actually started to believe him.Fellow winner Anna McKinney said James is renowned as a the joker in the pack so everyone thought it was just another one of his jokes.She said “At the start I was just like yeah sure Jimmy, he’s always playing pranks and I was having none of it.“But after a good few hours, he was so insistent and persistent with the calls, that I was like right this isn’t funny anymore is he actually serious?“Then when I realised he was, I was just gobsmacked and absolutely over the moon.” Bradley was glad when his colleagues started to take him serious, so he could the celebrations underway.“I was getting annoyed when they wouldn’t believe me. I was repeating myself over and over again, suppose when you’re always playing pranks that reputation as a messer sticks.“I was like the boy who cried wolf, thankfully they believed me and then we can start celebrating properly.”The syndicate eventually met up for breakfast in the Inishowen town of Carndonagh on Thursday morning to toast their luck. They had to settle for tea instead of champagne however as nowhere was open to buy some bubbly.Although most of the ‘lucky 13’ feel blessed, Maria Doherty feels even luckier than most.She only started at the company on Monday last and only contributed to the lotto syndicate because she had some change in her pocket.Maria, 21, hasn’t even received her first pay cheque from the Malin-Head based company.“I’m just so glad I had some change in my pocket and it was really nice to be asked to become part of the syndicate.“I can’t tell you how happy I am that I did,” laughed Maria.Many of the group are now planning holidays and spending sprees while others also want to wipe out their mortgages.TICKET HOLDER REVEALS IT TOOK HIM HOURS TO CONVINCE WORKMATES THEY WON LOTTO was last modified: September 19th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalForward EmphasisJames Bradleylottomoneylast_img read more

Drake Celebrated at MVC Women’s 25th Celebration Brunch at Hoops In The Heartland

first_imgBennett (1999-2003), Wakely (1992-96) and Wendell (2013-17) are three of the most decorated players in Drake and MVC history. Bennett helped Drake win three MVC championships, play in three NCAA tournaments and was a member of the 2002 Drake team which advanced to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen. Wakely was a member of the 1995 Drake team that won the MVC Tournament and later advanced to the second round of the 1995 NCAA Tournament. Wendell was a member of the 2016-17 team, which set numerous records, including the only MVC team to go undefeated in league play at 18-0, compiled a MVC and program-record 22-game winning streak and won the MVC Tournament and advanced to the 2017 NCAA Tournament. A two-time All-American honorable mention honoree, Bennett is just one of seven players to be selected to the MVC First Team four times in a career. Bennett is No. 6 in career scoring at Drake and No. 12 in MVC history with 1,930 points. She was named the 2000 MVC Freshman of the Year, was a two-time MVC Scholar-Athlete First team selection and was selected as a finalist for the prestigious Wade Trophy her senior year. MOLINE, ILL. – Former Drake University women’s basketball standouts Carla Bennett, Tricia Wakely and Lizzy Wendell were recognized at the Missouri Valley Conference Women’s 25th Celebration Brunch, Friday, March 9, at the TaxSlayer Center in Moline, Ill for their selection to the MVC’s the 25th Anniversary Women’s Basketball Team. The anniversary team was announced earlier this year. Dr. Renae Chesnut, Drake University’s long-time faculty athletics representative, also served as a panelist at the event. The voting panel determined a ‘Top 10′ from a list of 25 finalists. To view the entire MVC women’s basketball anniversary team click here. Wendell, the youngest player on the anniversary team, scored 2,551 career points, which is the third highest total in Drake and MVC history. She is just the fourth Bulldog and eighth MVC player to score 2,000 or more points. Wendell was selected to the All-MVC First Team all four years of her outstanding career, a feat that has been accomplished by Bennett and just five others in MVC history. In her senior season, Wendell was named the 2017 Jackie Stiles MVC Player of the Year, an Associated Press All-American honorable mention honoree and a WBCA All-American honorable mention selection. She was tabbed MVC Player of the Week 14 times in her career, a total that is second all-time in Valley history behind just Jackie Stiles of Missouri State, who was No. 1 in the anniversary team balloting. Dr. Chesnut was one of 12 members of the Leaders & Pioneers Panel moderated by MVC Hall of Famer and former Illinois State women’s basketball head coach Jill Hutchinson. Dr. Chesnut is the lone faculty athletics representative on the panel and served in that capacity for 16 years from 2000-16. She is currently the dean of Drake’s College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences. Team composition for each sport was determined by a 25-person committee (two representatives from each MVC institution and a panel of five voters from the conference office).  The team composition includes years in which league teams competed under the MVC umbrella during the past 25 years (1992-2017) and does not include competition from the current season. The 2017-18 season is a landmark one for the MVC and for women’s sports. To help celebrate the 45th anniversary of Title IX and the 25th anniversary of women’s sports, the Valley named a 25-Year Anniversary Teams throughout 2017-18 for each of the league’s sponsored women’s sports. Wakely earned All-American honorable mention accolades her final season. Wakely was named 1996 MVC Player of the Year that same season and to the MVC First Team. She is No. 12 all-time in career scoring at Drake with 1,605 points. Wakely was a decorated student in the classroom, who was named the co-COSIDA Academic All-American of the Year in 1996 and was selected to the MVC Scholar-Athlete First Team three times in her career. In that role, Dr. Chesnut represented Drake student-athletes, coaches and faculty in MVC and NCAA affairs and chaired numerous committees during her tenure. That leadership included serving as the president of the MVC Presidents’ Council in 2004-05 and 2013-14. She joins the panel university leaders as one of the shining examples of women in leadership roles that have helped foster and advocate for the inclusion, development and growth of women’s athletics in the MVC during the last quarter century. Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more

Letterkenny school gets green light for major development

first_imgThe green light has been signalled for major redevelopment of Scoil Cholmcille, Letterkenny – the second major school building project to be confirmed in as many weeks. Minister for Education, Joe McHugh, joined staff, pupils, parents and board of management and principal Paraig Cannon at the school to celebrate the big news.“I was in Glenswilly NS just two weeks ago to mark the step forward for the major extension in that school and I committed to bringing more news without delay,” Minister McHugh said. “And now we are at another school and it really is a privilege to be able to make an announcement like this for Scoil Cholmcille.”The school received confirmation from Minister McHugh that it is moving to tender to source the building firm to carry out the major redevelopment of the school.“It was Fine Gael in Government that pledged this kind of investment in our schools and it is a huge honour to be able to see these moving to the point where the building work is only a short time away,” Minister McHugh said.“Ultimately Scoil Cholmcille will get eight new classrooms, a general purpose hall and ball courts. Not only that but the prefabs will be removed from the school grounds, there’ll be a new a car park and set down area. “We are talking about a school building of the best standard and from an environmental point of view it will have a near zero energy rating.“Huge credit has to go to principal Paraig Cannon, all the staff, chair of the board of management Fr Kemmy and board members and the whole staff and school community for their support and dedication to this project all the way through, not to mention the welcome I received.”Fine Gael councillor Jimmy Kavanagh added: “It is fantastic news. It’s such a huge boost to think that in no time at all we will have the builders on site and the staff and pupils of Scoil Cholmcille enjoying the best teaching environment thanks to commitment and investment of Fine Gael in Government.”Minister McHugh said: “Scoil Cholmcille, Glenswilly, the progress of St Eunan’s College, Letterkenny through the fast-track Adapt programme, upgrade works at Moville Community College and many others are all shining examples of this Government’s commitment through Project Ireland 2040.“Other communities are waiting and I want to assure people that we know how important each project is; that each one is a priority in each school community and I am determined to see them make good progress.” Letterkenny school gets green light for major development was last modified: September 30th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgCLICK HERE if you are having a problem viewing the photos or video on a mobile deviceOAKLAND — The regular season begins Friday night for the Warriors.Technically the Warriors’ preseason ended Oct. 12 — they’ve played 45 games since then, including a wildly impressive 147-140 win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night.But the truth of the matter is that this team has treated those 45 games as a continuation of the exhibition schedule. They wanted to do well and win, of course, but …last_img read more

Whoops; Coelacanth Not in the Family Tree

first_imgSorry; they looked like they were evolving.  The ungainly coelacanth, long thought extinct but then discovered alive and well in the Indian Ocean in the 1920s, had bony fins that evolutionists presumed were forerunners of limbs.  Now, a report in PNAS1 says lungfish instead were the distant ancestors of us and our fellow land vertebrates.  The authors, Brinkmann et al., considered their work a valiant attempt to solve a big problem:The colonization of land by tetrapod ancestors is one of the major questions in the evolution of vertebrates.  Despite intense molecular phylogenetic research on this problem during the last 15 years, there is, until now , no statistically supported answer to the question of whether coelacanths or lungfish are the closest living relatives of tetrapods.They compared the DNA of two genes in three lungfish groups and with coelacanth, and despite some puzzling results, tipped the ancestry score to the lungfish based on “high bootstrap values, Bayesian posterior probabilities, and likelihood ratio tests.”1Brinkmann et al., “Nuclear protein-coding genes support lungfish and not the coelacanth as the closest living relatives of land vertebrates,” Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA, 10.1073/pnas.0400609101, Published online before print March 22, 2004.OK, so they get their publication in one journal before someone shoots it down somewhere else.  You can pick the genes that give you the results you want, if you massage them thoroughly with heavy doses of imagination while under the influence of Darwin whiskey.    What a crazy way to do science.  Now anybody with a PhD and a knowledge of fancy jargon and mathematical hand-waving tricks can build a fictional account of the unobservable past that can never be proven.  As long as it might be true (provided we can massage away the protruding bones) it’s good enough to be published.  Should this be called science, which most people assume has something to do with discovering truth?  Look at this example of what these authors do in their paper when one of their methods doesn’t produce the desired result.  The details don’t matter, the medium is the massage:The ML-based [Maximum-Likelihood] method (QP) shows generally high support values for all inferred branches, with three exceptions: (i) the nodes supporting the monophyly of lungfishes, (ii) the node supporting the sistergroup relationship of tetrapods and lungfishes, and (iii) the node supporting the monophyly of the Sarcopterygii (44%).  Part of the problem can be explained by the surprising result that TREE-PUZZLE supports an obviously artificial monophyletic group of Neoceratodus and the coelacanth with the highest value of 48% in this region of the tree.  It is known that the TREE-PUZZLE program is rather sensitive to pronounced differences in evolutionary rates because of the quartet approach.  The African and the South American lungfishes evolve quite fast , and the Australian lungfish and the coelacanth sequences evolve comparatively slower.  This constellation of pronounced differences in evolutionary rates may lead to an artificial grouping of sequences with similar evolutionary speed (usually the slowly evolving ones).  Often a more basal position of the fast evolving lineages due to long branch attraction effects will result, because these faster sequences are “pulled” toward the faster evolving sequences at the root, i.e., outgroup of the tree.  This explains why the highest support of QP among basal Sarcopterygii (48%) seems to favor a clearly incorrect grouping of Neoceratodus and the coelacanth, again supporting the notion that QP might not be the most appropriate method for this phylogenetic problem.So we’ll just explain away the data that don’t fit our preconceived “notions” and adjust the imaginary parameters (evolution rates) till we get a semblance of congruence.  Tweak, tweak, tweak.  The rest of the article uses copious wiggle words – might, probably, possibly, support, etc.  Molecular phylogeny is just a game Darwin Party members like to play, because it has no possibility of a winner (see 07/25/2002 headline).    For more on the winless game of guessing tetrapod evolution, see 07/30/2002, 12/03/2003 and 08/09/2003 headlines.(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Is the Universe Evolving Upward?

first_imgIt’s intuitively obvious that to get from a big bang to intelligent astronomers looking for evidence of the bang through telescopes, the amount of organization in the universe must increase over time dramatically.  Lately, astronomy has uncovered much more dynamism in space than previously recognized – but much of it seems destructive, not creative.Orion blast:  Look at the picture in this article on PhysOrg.  Something explosive happened in Orion.  It sent at least 40 stars careening outward at speeds up to 300,000 miles per hour.  They’re not sure what it was, but it had to pack a punch to fling out that much material.  “The energy in this explosive display is estimated to be as much as that from a hundred trillion suns; nothing else quite like it is known.”  The explosion is thought to have occurred just 500 years ago.    Yet the Orion Nebula is often described as a “nursery of massive stars.”  Even its rare supernovae are described with creative energy: “the birth of massive stars involves a subset of the processes that produce all stars, while their deaths, as supernovae, will scatter into space the rich mix of chemical elements made in their nuclear furnaces, elements without which life could not exist.”  The power of suggestion leaves one thinking these explosions are giving birth to highly-organized complexes of matter called living cells.Crash into life:  “Was life founded on cyanide from space crashes?” New Scientist asked.  In one sentence we have two destructive energetic things – crashes and cyanide – leading to life.  The article later spoke of “Life-giving poison.”Black holes:  Live Science wrote of black holes as “powerhouses of the universe.”  That they may be, but they are formed from the destruction of stars and result in singularities, where all information and order is lost.  What these energetic events create, if anything, is high-power cosmic rays that rip through our flesh after traveling across the universe.  “We detect some of these particles on Earth, where they still pack such a punch they can knock out electronics systems.”  The article was not trying to ascribe creative powers to black holes or cosmic rays.  It should be noted, though, that energy and organization are not one and the same.The outer limits:  One of the most energetic explosions known in space is enabling astronomers to probe the “dark ages” of the universe, reported PhysOrg.  Gamma-ray bursts are thought to occur when massive stars run out of fuel and collapse.  The rebound sends shock waves that are the most luminous events known.  The astronomers say this distant burst occurred when the universe was just 5% of its age, but involved the destruction of a star that must have been formed some other way.Cosmology enthusiasts are aware that astronomers have argued over dark matter for decades.  PhysOrg asked if we really need dark matter.  The short article entertains the minority opinion that “we are simply misinterpreting the data and that what in fact is happening is that we don’t understand gravity.”  If we don’t yet understand something as everyday as gravity, it could be judged hubristic to presume we could understand the origin of complex entities like stars and life.You may find an article posted this month in ICR Acts & Facts magazine pertinent to this discussion.(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
