Exclusive – Sturridge’s injuries bigger factor in Liverpool’s poor season than Suarez sale, says ex-Reds goalkeeper

first_imgFormer Liverpool goalkeeper David James believes Daniel Sturridge’s persistent injury problems were more of a defining factor in the Reds’ disappointing Premier League campaign than the sale of Luis Suarez.In 2013/2014, Brendan Rodgers’ side came within touching distance of the league title and were spearheaded by an attacking duo of Suarez and Sturridge who amassed 52 goals between them.Top scorer Suarez was subsequently sold to Barcelona, while Sturridge suffered a number of debilitating injuries as Liverpool slumped to a sixth place finish, and James feels the England striker’s lengthy spell on the sidelines proved more detrimental to any success.“The key player for Liverpool was Daniel Sturridge. He scored more vital goals than Luis Suarez,” the 44-year-old told The Sports Bar.“Most of Suarez’s goals were scored in 2-0 or 3-0 wins when only the first goal mattered. Sturridge scoring in a 1-0 win was more important than Suarez scoring a hat-trick in a 5-0 victory.“Having Sturridge injured for so long in the season was more detrimental than losing Suarez.”last_img read more


first_imgDonegal North East TD, Pádraig Mac Lochlainn is to seek assurances from the Minister for Transport, Leo Varadkar on the future operation of the Malin Head Coastguard Station.Deputy Padraig MacLochlainnIt follows reports that the station may be reduced to a 12 hour service and renamed.Deputy Joe McHugh assured Donegal Daily yesterday there were no plans to downgrade the station. Sinn Fein’s Deputy Mac Lochlainn said “The people of the North West, particularly those living in coastal communities have repeatedly had to endure speculation about the future of the Malin Head station. This is a world class service that we are very proud of. A service essential to this region. An emergency service that saves lives all year around”.He dded it is disturbing to learn of reports that the station may be reduced to a 12 hour service and renamed.“I am seeking assurance from the Minister for Transport, Leo Varadkar that these reports are untrue and I am further seeking assurance that the staffing numbers required to maintain a 24 hour service are achieved at Malin Head and then maintained.“I have refrained from criticising Minister Varadkar over this matter to date as it has been my opinion that some senior officials in his department have long sought the closure of Malin Head Coastguard and Valentia Coastguard Stations and the centralisation of marine rescue services to Dublin. “However it is now time that this agenda was quashed once and for all and the person to do this can only be the Minister himself”. MacLOCHLAINN SEEKS ASSURANCES ON FUTURE OF MALIN HEAD COASTGUARD was last modified: December 31st, 2013 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:Deputy Padraig MacLochlainnMalin Head Coastguard stationlast_img read more

I don’t think Drake champions will be unusual in the future.”McCann pulled away and held his lead down the stretch over Eastern Michigan’s Willy Fink to add to his already impressive season and career as a Bulldog.”I’m trying to keep myself in check right now because it [winning at the Drake Relays] hasn’t sunk in yet and I have a long season ahead,” McCann added. “It is a nice bonus midway through the season, so I’m pretty happy for that.”The Bulldogs almost collected another Relays title later as senior Emma Huston (Des Moines, Iowa) and Wichita State’s Rebekah Topham dueled in the women’s 1,500 meters. Both were former Iowa high school standouts and Topham dove across the line just ahead of Huston to win the event. Topham finished in 4:23.09 followed by Huston in 4:23.13.”I really wanted to win and I really pushed it. It wasn’t quite enough,” Huston said. “It was definitely a confidence booster. I started getting sick on Thursday, so that was kind of a bummer and it shook my confidence a bit, but I was still a good race.”Huston’s performance came just a week after she set the school record in the event.Senior Pierce Vincent (Fayetteville, Georgia) also came up just shy of etching his name on the list of Drake Relays champions with a second-place finish in the men’s 100 meters. Vincent, who posted the fastest time in the qualifying heats finished in 10.46 in the finals just behind UNI’s Brandon Carnes. Carnes won in 10.28.The Bulldogs will resume their season next weekend with the squad split across potentially three meets.last_img read more


first_imgThere has been widespread disappointment that yet again, hope for increased supports for children with special needs in mainstream pre-school services have been shattered.Avril McMonagleA Government pledge to introduce a second pre-school year has now been withdrawn and delayed until at least 2020.Avril McMonagle, Donegal’s County Childcare Manager has heavily criticised this decision in relation to what a second pre-school year could offer children with special needs. She said “Whilst it is palatable that the economy is not in a position to provide a second free year for every child at the moment, what is completely unpalatable is that children with special needs continue to be denied equality of access to a pre-school opportunity designed for all children on a universal basis’.The 2013 Census of Childcare Provision in Donegal revealed that almost 120 children with special needs were attending Donegal’s early childhood services, a number which increases year on year.Children with special educational needs face a huge challenge in availing of a pre-school education which is tailored to suit their individual needs. Mainstream early childhood services do not have appropriate funding or supports to provide equality of opportunity for children with special needs.The capitation rate provided to pre-school services does not meet the cost of providing specific tailored supports, staff training or personnel that a child may need. The only concession open to some children with special needs is to split their pre-school year over two years. This can have a detrimental effect on children who need routine in their lives and leaves parents and early childhood services in an impossible situation with regard to covering the cost of additional days. Children do not have special needs for two or three days per week – they have them every day. Despite the issue of children with special needs featuring in the White Paper on Early Education as far back as 1999, 15 years on there is still no national plan for children with special needs under four years old. The introduction of a second free year, phased in an incremental basis for children with special needs primarily, would have been a more equitable measure in the meantime.Although the need for specialist support is crucial at every stage– at no other point in the process is it more important to intervene appropriately than at the pre-school stage.Timely supports for children with disabilities or special needs at the pre-school stage will have the most significant impact on development and learning and at the very least has the potential to fast-track the identification of the required supports going into primary school.“However, it would appear the Free Pre-School year is only free if your child is absent of a disability or specific need. These decisions are morally inexcusable for everyone involved,” added Ms McMonagle.DELAY IN SPECIAL NEEDS SUPPORT SLAMMED BY DONEGAL COUNTY CHILDCARE was last modified: January 12th, 2015 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)last_img read more

Is Legal Hammerlocking the Way to Win a Scientific Controversy?

first_imgThe cartoon stereotype of a scientist as an unbiased truth-seeking nerd wearing a white lab coat is hard to reconcile with some recent events.  Not that the cartoon stereotype was ever realistic, but the row over Darwinism vs Intelligent Design (ID) shows just how biased and unethical certain people and organizations can behave in support of their side.  One would think a scientific controversy would involve the debating of evidence in the open marketplace of ideas (another cartoon stereotype).  But what if some participants work instead to prevent their opponents from even being heard?  Is making one’s opponent cry uncle a measure of scientific progress?Georgia: Stickers gone “for good”:  The Cobb County School District near Atlanta, Georgia thought they had a strong case for appealing the decision of Judge Cooper, who ordered stickers in high school biology textbooks calling for critical thinking on evolution to be removed (05/24/2005, bullet 6).  The appeals court did not rule on the constitutionality of the stickers.  Instead, it remanded the decision back to the local court on grounds the records of the lower court were incomplete.    In the meantime, though, the burden of legal proceedings and costs on the school board grew too great.  Weary from legal hassles and mounting costs, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the school said last month it was giving up.  It settled with the five parents who sued the school with backing from the ACLU, by agreeing to remove the stickers.  Not only that, they would never again apply any similar stickers, they said, and agreed to pay a third of the plaintiff’s costs: some $160,000.    The school board was not acknowledging fault by this action, as if they felt they had done something wrong or without merit.  Attorney Larry Taylor expressed his feelings to the paper in an editorial Dec. 21 (article reprinted on Uncommon Descent): “Once again, the potent combination of a liberal judge and the deep pockets of the American Civil Liberties Union have proved too much to overcome,” he said.  “…This case was never about questioning evolution.  It was about making sure it was taught honestly, fairly, accurately and completely – all of which the current textbooks fail to do.”  Nature (4 Jan 2007) agreed that the decision was pragmatic: “The school board had a right to appeal but decided to abandon the case, in part because of rising costs.”  CNN quoted the board chairwoman saying, “We faced the distraction and expense of starting all over with more legal actions and another trial.”  They just wanted to get it over with and start the year with a clean slate.  Attorney Brian Fahling of the American Family Association, according to Agape Press, regrets that the school board buckled under pressure.    Needless to say, the pro-Darwin side is rejoicing over this capitulation.  The NCSE justified the decision, and Science Now smirked that the stickers are “gone for good.”California:  Frazier Park a year later:  What happened since the Frazier Mountain High School capitulated to legal pressure in January? (01/25/2006)  In that case, also, it was not that the teacher or the school board felt that they had done anything wrong; they were concerned over the cost of defending themselves in court.  Even though they agreed in the settlement to “never again” offer a class that promotes creationism or intelligent design, the teacher had every intent of offering her “philosophy of design” class again this year, because “promoting” creationism was never the purpose to begin with.    Nevertheless, certain persons saw to it that it wouldn’t happen.  Though the people in the communities around Frazier Park are overwhelmingly conservative and supported the class, the only newspaper in the little mountain town is owned by a liberal pro-Darwinist.  She not only wrote articles strongly biased against intelligent design (example), and tended to print only letters of similar persuasion, but promoted anti-ID candidates in the school board election.  As a result, two anti-ID candidates won seats—one of them the plaintiff who had filed the lawsuit.  Ethics would demand he recuse himself over this issue because of a conflict of interest, but because the community appears weary of the controversy, it appears unlikely it will be discussed again any time soon.    Unfortunately for the pro-ID side, one of their allies, the district superintendent, had to quit his position over charges of ethical violations unrelated to the ID controversy.  The school board is now strongly stacked against the class and it is unlikely a repeat will be attempted again any time soon.    One pastor in the area says that the paper pushed the two anti-ID candidates ad nauseum and reported against ID with false information and bias approaching hysteria.  He said the people of the community tend to get excited over an issue for awhile but quickly tire of it.  Thus the anti-ID minority in this small mountain town gained the momentum against the majority—not by debate over the issues, but over legal pressure, threats and propaganda.Darwin’s arsenals:  Apparently not satisfied with their legal victories, or rather their ability to wear down the opposition, the pro-Darwin forces are ratcheting up their battle tactics.  Science this week (Netwatch, Jan 5) urged readers, “Become an Evo Warrior.”  What, pray tell, is an evo-warrior?  The news item pointed to an arsenal of evolutionary info at FASEB, the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, which contains “pointers on meeting with public officials, testifying at school board hearings, and related topics” in case your local school board tries something like Cobb County or Frazier Park did, or even if your hometown newspaper runs an editorial in favor of intelligent design.  The site has sample letters to write, Powerpoint presentations, posters, cards and even buttons that proclaim “Teach Evolution – Learn Science.”Paper victory:  A congressional committee found evidence for harassment and discrimination by the Smithsonian against Dr. Richard Sternberg, who had allowed publication of a pro-ID paper in a Smithsonian journal (see Evolution News).  The report listed numerous examples of spying, plotting, lying, scheming and creating a hostile environment against Dr. Sternberg by Smithsonian staff with the NCSE’s help.  It is unlikely those charged will suffer any consequences of this report, however, or that many citizens will even know it exists.  The NCSE website makes no mention of the accusations against them in the report and shows no signs of changing anything they are doing.  Apparently there are no fines, penalties or legal consequences against those involved—unlike the large legal costs faced by school boards sued by the ACLU or Americans United for Separation of Church and State.  The report, headed by Republican congressman Mark Souder, only makes recommendations to Congress about what should be done to prevent such behavior by the Smithsonian in the future.  With the new Democratically-controlled congress in session, that will most likely not be on the agenda.It would seem that school boards intellectually prepared to debate evolution and ID lack the fortitude or budget to count the cost of protracted, expensive lawsuits.  Is Darwinism winning by pressure, then?  John West of the Discovery Institute, however, is encouraged by the events of 2006.  In his podcast for Dec. 25 on ID the Future, he listed reasons to believe Darwinism is imploding and ID is making headway – not the least of which is the apparent paranoia of Darwinism’s defenders.After the Darwin idol topples, we’re going to remember the litany of shenanigans and intimidation tactics of the Darwiniacs and hold it up for all to see.  Philosophers and historians of science are going to shake their heads over this one.  It’s hard to remember a time when people ostensibly committed to evidence, debate, logic and reason behaved so badly.  Where is the rationality, the intellectual dignity and integrity, behind Darwin buttons and Darwin Days and legal hammerlocks against poor local teachers who just want their student to hear both sides of one of the biggest scientific controversies of our time?  This is crazy.  They don’t have a philosophical or historical leg to stand on for believing Darwin’s fairy tales and insisting that people can’t hear anything else.   Whenever the Darwiniacs have tried to debate the evidence in a fair exchange they have almost always walked away with dodo droppings on their heads.  No wonder they are paranoid.  Notice that nothing in the Darwin Party’s reaction deals with scientific evidence.  It’s all about strategizing to silence anyone who opposes them.  If they can only win by threatening with their ACLU attack dogs and silly propaganda games, how can they look at themselves in the mirror?  The evidence, meanwhile, marches on (example).(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read

Pakistan team’s departure to India for World T20 put on hold

first_imgIn a late night development, the departure of Pakistan team for India for the World T20 has been put on hold by the Pakistan Cricket Board.PCB Chairman Shaharyar Khan said the Interior Ministry will decide today on the teams departure for India.”Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan after going through the briefing of the security delegation that is in India will let us know future plans and teams departure,” he said.The Pakistan team was due to depart at noon today from Lahore for New Delhi but some players also confirmed to PTI they had been told this plan was now on hold.Another official in the board confirmed that Shaharyar after discussions with the Interior Ministry had informed the Board of Control for Cricket in India that the Pakistan government has advised the team against playing in Dharamsala.”The PCB has asked the BCCI and ICC to shift the March 19 match with India from Dharamsala to either Kolkata or Mohali,” he said.The official said the BCCI had indicated to PCB that Mohali would not be the alternate venue since Pakistan was already playing two matches there and it could either be Kolkata or New Delhi.”The BCCI also has a problem staging the match in New Delhi because of court orders,” the official said.Another source in the PCB told PTI that the security delegation which went to India including Dharamsala to inspect security arrangements for the Pakistan team had raised three main objections in its feedback to the Interior Ministry.advertisement”One objection was that only low-grade security and government officials met with them in Dharamasala and they are not satisfied with the security plans laid out for the Pakistan team incase if there is a protest against the team,” the source said.”Another objection is that there were given no clear security plan for the Pakistani media and fans who will go to India for the event,” he said.Also read:  Confirmed!

Uddhav against ban on firecrackers in Maharashtra

first_imgMumbai, Oct 11 (PTI) Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray today disapproved of the idea of a ban on the sale of firecrackers in Maharashtra, a day after his party leader and state minister Ramdas Kadam sought its proscription to protect the environment.He also appeared criticising curbs on celebrations during Hindu festivals when he said, “The only things that they have not said till now are that tear off the Panchang (Almanac) because festivals are all humbug. They should say that also. After all, the festivals have already lost their sheen. The excesses of peace would someday explode.”Last year, the apex court had banned those below 18 from participating in the Dahi Handi sport and limited the height of human pyramids to 20 feet. Also, activists moved courts this year demanding a ban on the use of loudspeakers during Ganpati Visarjan festivities.Administering the oath for an “eco-friendly Diwali” to the schoolchildren at the Mantralaya yesterday, Kadam had said he would request Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to ban the sale of firecrackers in the state, on the lines of the Supreme Courts verdict for the Delhi-NCR region.Kadam retracted the statement saying the Shiv Sena will not support anything that “goes against Hindu sentiments”.He had came under sharp criticism from party colleague Sanjay Raut and MNS chief Raj Thackeray for his remarks.”I had never said the state government is contemplating a ban,” Kadam said today.”I had said that the issue is sensitive one and if at all a ban is to be imposed, Uddhav Thackeray and Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis would discuss it and take a decision as it would be a policy decision,” he said.advertisementHe added, “As environment ministry, our entire thrust would be on creating awareness among the people about the harmful effects of firecrackers.”The awareness drive will be undertaken to convince children and their parents about the pollution created by firecrackers, he said.Thackeray made his displeasure public when he visited the Metro-3 work site at the Azad Maidan in the south Mumbai. He also expressed unhappiness over the ongoing metro work.”I am not happy with the metro work being carried out in the vicinity of the Aarey colony. I shall visit the area soon and make my stand clear. If the nature is being harmed due to the work, the Shiv Sena will certainly oppose the work,” he said.Thackeray also said there were several complaints about damage to buildings due to underground work of the Metro 3 line. “However, the officers are taking good care to avoid any mishap,” he added.

IPL 2019 final: Why James Neesham deleted tweet about MS Dhoni’s controversial run out

first_imgNew Zealand all-rounder James Neesham on Wednesday revealed he had deleted his viral tweet about MS Dhoni’s run out from Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 final between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings.Neesham was among the many from the cricket fraternity to weigh in the controversial run out that dominated the narrative during the IPL 2019 final on Sunday at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.Chasing 150, Chennai Super Kings were dealt with a heavy blow when they lost their captain and top-scorer of the season for 2. Dhoni was run out at the non-striker’s end when he tried to steal an extra run in the 13th over after a direct hit from Mumbai Indians’ Ishan Kishan.What looked like a close call was referred to third umpire, Nigel Llong who gave it out after long deliberation. Replays, it is safe to say, were inconclusive as two different angles seemed to show two different scenarios.Social media was divided over the run out decision and Chennai Super Kings’ subsequent 1-run defeat irked the CSK fans, who argued against the decision on the web.All-rounder James Neesham had uploaded an image from the match and wrote: “I love how passionate some fans are about our sport. I have huge respect for MS but how anyone could see the below photo and say it’s not out truly astounds me.”Neesh, there are two sides to a coin mate. Your very same picture at the exact moment from another angle. Care to Google about optical illusion maybe? Murali (@bharathwajm7) May 13, 2019Neesham was arguing against CSK fans but following a lot of “dumb comments” on his feed, the all-rounder removed his post.”I’ve deleted my tweet about MS Dhoni’s runout, not because I’ve changed my mind, but because: 1. I’m sick of seeing the same dumb comments in my feed 200 times a day. 2. I just don’t actually care. Please don’t bother tweeting me about it again. Have a good day everyone (sic),” Neesham wrote on Wednesday.I’ve deleted my tweet about MS Dhoni’s runout, not because I’ve changed my mind, but because:1.

Have a good day everyone Jimmy Neesham (@JimmyNeesh) May 15, 2019Speaking to India Today earlier this week, Chennai Super Kings off-spinner Harbhajan Singh had said the run out call was a difficult decision to make.Harbhajan Singh cut a dejected figure at the CSK dugout in Hyderabad as the then defending champions lost the final by 1 run. Tail-ender Shardul Thakur was trapped LBW by Lasith Malinga in the last ball of the match when CSK needed only 2 runs.”It was a tough decision to make. A lot of times it’s been said that the decision should be given in batsman’s favour. In Dhoni’s case, it wasn’t given. I think it’s one of the key points where the game drifted away from us,” Harbhajan had said.Also Read | Harbhajan Singh on MS Dhoni run out in IPL 2019 final: It was a tough decision to makeAlso Read | IPL 2019: Why Virat Kohli has been unable to do what Rohit and Dhoni do so oftenAlso See:last_img read more
