USS Rafael Peralta visits Newport en route to San Diego

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today Newest US Navy destroyer visits Newport en route to San Diego View post tag: US Navy Authorities View post tag: USS Rafael Peralta View post tag: Arleigh Burke-class The U.S. Navy’s newest Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer USS Rafael Peralta stopped at Naval Station Newport during the ship’s first port visit en route to its future homeport at Naval Base San Diego.USS Rafael Peralta was delivered to the U.S. Navy on February 3, 2017 from General Dynamics’ Bath Iron Works shipyard in Maine. The ship and her crew are now en route to San Diego where DDG 115 will officially enter service in a commissioning ceremony set for July 29, 2017.Rafael Peralta is the navy’s 65th Arleigh Burke-class destroyer and the second Flight IIA restart ship.The destroyer is named after Sgt. Rafael Peralta, one of the most heralded Marines from 2004’s Battle of Fallujah. In November 2010, Peralta pulled a grenade tossed by insurgents towards himself and absorbed most of the blast with his body, thus saving the lives of two fellow marines. He was mortally wounded from the grenade blast.Rafael Peralta is equipped with the Aegis baseline 9 combat system which includes an integrated air and missile defense (IAMD) capability incorporating ballistic missile defense 5.0 capability upgrade and naval integrated fire control-counter air. The ship’s IAMD radar will provide increased computing power and radar upgrades that improve detection and reaction capabilities against modern air warfare threats. The Aegis Combat System will enable the ship to link radars with other ships and aircraft to provide a composite picture of the battle space and effectively increase the theater space.center_img Share this article Newest US Navy destroyer visits Newport en route to San Diego View post tag: BIW May 3, 2017last_img read more

N. Korea to cut communication lines to ‘enemy’ South: KCNA

first_imgThe links being cut also include “the East and West Seas communication lines” between militaries of the two sides, an inter-Korean “trial communication line” and a hotline between the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea and South Korea’s presidential Blue House, KCNA said.Last week, the North threatened to close the liaison office with the South and threatened further steps to make Seoul “suffer.”Kim’s powerful sister, Kim Yo Jong, also threatened to scrap a military agreement signed with Seoul unless the South stopped activists from sending the leaflets.KCNA said Tuesday that Kim Yo Jong, and another top official, Kim Yong Chol, have “stressed that the work towards the South should thoroughly turn into the one against enemy.”Pyongyang largely cut off contact with Seoul following the collapse of a summit between Kim and US President Donald Trump in Hanoi last year that left nuclear talks at a standstill. North Korea will cut military and political communication links to “enemy” South Korea on Tuesday, state media said, after threats over activists sending anti-Pyongyang leaflets over the border.The threats come with inter-Korean ties at a standstill, despite three summits between the North’s Kim Jong Un and the South’s President Moon Jae-in in 2018.Pyongyang “will completely cut off and shut down the liaison line between the authorities of the North and the South, which has been maintained through the North-South joint liaison office,” as well as other communication links “from 12:00 on June 9, 2020,” the Korean Central News Agency said.

Solskjaer closes in on signings

first_img The 40-year-old has targeted the midfield duo of Magnus Wolff Eikrem and Mats Moller Daehli, both capped by Norway, who he worked with at former club Molde and while in charge of the Manchester United reserve team. Eikrem, 23, is currently at Dutch club Heerenveen having been sold by Molde last summer, but he attended Cardiff’s FA Cup win at Newcastle on Saturday and has travelled back to south Wales to undergo a medical. Press Association Sport understands the deal will be worth around £2million and should be completed before the upcoming Premier League game against West Ham. It is understood Daehli, 18, is also set to undergo a medical and complete a switch from Molde in the coming days. Cardiff have also been linked with moves for Blackpool’s Tom Ince and Crystal Palace’s Jonathan Williams, as well as a loan deal for Manchester United’s Wilfried Zaha.

Osimhen Fires Hat-trick in Tune up Match

first_imgVictor Osimhen yesterday scored a hat-trick in Flying Eagles’ 5-0 defeat of Kano-based Dabo Babes FC 5-0 in yet another test match.The FIFA Under-17 World Cup winner was the man-of –the-match at the FIFA Goal Project, Abuja as his first half hat –trick drew applause from an appreciable crowd that included Nigeria U-23 team Coach Samson Siasia, former Super Eagles captain Mutiu Adepoju, one-ime Super Eagles Assistant Coach Bitrus Bewarang and NFF assistant director (Technical) Siji Lagunju, also a former Nigeria international.Spectators were still exchanging pleasantries on arrival at the venue, when Wolfsburg striker Osimhen set the game alive with his first minute strike. That goal came in just 25 seconds of play.He added a second in the 25th minute after some good work from the flanks by Samuel Chukwueze.Chukwueze, bronze boot winner at the FIFA U-17 World Cup Chile 2015 and who will be penning a deal with English Premier League side, Arsenal in the coming days also had his name on the scorers’ sheet, combining well with Osimhen to slot the ball beyond a bemused Dabo Babes goalkeeper for the third goal of the match.Just when it looked like the Flying Eagles needed a breather after some exhausting early minutes display, Victor Osimhen came up with the fourth goal in the 43rd minute to complete his hat trick and make it a comfortable lead before Chukwudi Agor completed the rout in the 47th minute, running onto a through pass from Orji Okonkwo to fire home a long range shot which drew applause from the spectators. In the second half, Flying Eagles gaffer Emmanuel Amuneke brought in some of the untested legs and rested his key men as he became conscious of the task ahead. The half produced little in form of excitement, as the Nigeria U-20 played safe to avoid unwanted injuries.The match was the second in a series of friendly games lined up by Coach Emmanuel Amuneke for his wards as they intensify preparation for next month’s Africa U-20 Cup of Nations qualifying fixture with Burundi.The process started with 30 players invited to the team’s Serob Legacy Hotel camp in Wuye. They were joined on arrival by over sixty other players at a routine screening exercise that lasted over two weeks after which the number was pruned down to 45, to allow the coaches concentrate more on individual abilities and group work.Head Coach Amuneke plans to play more friendly games against NPFL clubsides, with the hope that he can still identify some more league players within the age bracket to further fortify his team ahead of the first leg against Burundi on May 22 in Bujumbura.The winner of the two-legged tie will qualify for the final round of the U-20 Cup of Nations qualifying series in July this year.Eight teams will participate in the finals of the Africa U-20 Cup of Nations in Zambia next year, and it is from there that Africa’s four representatives to the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Korea Republic would emerge.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

MARY WAS SNATCHED AND KILLED BECAUSE SHE KNEW A SINISTER SECRET – TWIN SISTER

first_imgThe twin sister of missing Donegal girl Mary Boyle said she believes she knows who snatched her sister and where she is buried.Mary Boyle’s sister Ann claims she knew a sinister secret.And she revealed why she thinks Mary’s abduction was planned to prevent the six year old girl from revealing a sinister secret.Ann Doherty (nee Boyle) said she believes the little girl was killed and buried in swampy ground near to where she went missing in Cashelard outside Ballyshannon in 1977. Ann, who now lives in Co Offaly, said she does not believe that Mary was snatched by a stranger passing by on the afternoon of March 18th.“I find it impossible now to believe that that someone just landed in the middle of nowhere and took her. Mary had a great sense of her own personal safety.“One day, we were walking home from school when a car stopped and offered us a lift.“Mary refused to get in because she didn’t know the driver. She would never have put herself in danger,” she said. Ann, a mother of five, said she believes Mary was abducted and killed for a more sinister reason.The site at Cashelard which Gardai dug up in the search for missing Mary Boyle. Pic by Donegal Daily.“I believe Mary was killed because she was going to tell a secret on somebody about something that had happened to her.“I also believe her body is close to where she went missing and that the person who killed her knew every nook and cranny in the area,” she said.Ann claims that Gardai do not keep her informed of her sister’s case and that it was a journalist who recently broke the news that a man had ben questioned in connection with Mary’s disappearance.She added that Mary also deserves and inquest and then a decent burial and says she will continue to raise questions about her sister’s case. “She deserves a decent burial. She deserves some respect. And in years to come, I don’t want my children to have to keep up the search for their Aunty Mary. I want an end to it, so that they can have a normal life,” she added.MARY WAS SNATCHED AND KILLED BECAUSE SHE KNEW A SINISTER SECRET – TWIN SISTER was last modified: November 17th, 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:Ann BoyleBallyshannonCashelardGardaiMARY BOYLEmissingsnatchedlast_img read more

Is SETI Morphing Its Mission?

first_imgLook at the mission statement at the website of the SETI Institute: “The mission of the SETI Institute is to explore, understand and explain the origin, nature, and prevalence of life in the universe.”  What happened to the aliens?  The word “intelligence” is not found in their mission statement.  It sounds indistinguishable from the mission of Astrobiology (which does not care whether the life is intelligent).  A look at the dozen activity boxes on the home page only reveals two or three that seem clearly relevant to the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence.    Further indications that the SETI Institute is morphing its mission into a bigger tent can be seen in the News links: a report on the Leonid meteor shower (this is about planetary science, not SETI); an interview about the ethics of space exploration (that’s human space exploration, not Star Wars); an interview with a young scientist studying extremophiles in salt ponds on earth (that’s regular biology); and an airship-based investigation of climate change (that’s political science – 11/26/2009).  Only at the bottom of the column is there one clear article about SETI.    For some reason, Space.com dropped its link to weekly news articles from the SETI Institute.  These used to be clearly noted on the top title bar.  “SETI Thursday” is gone.  The last two articles did not deal with SETI: Sept. 2009 dealt with the institute’s “Adopt a Scientist” program, and Oct. 2009 was a review of the movie 2012..  The link Space.com/SETI only lists previous articles.    The SETI project has long been lampooned in some quarters (notably the Senate; 04/17/2006 and 11/18/2005 commentaries) but supported with almost religious fervor in others (09/24/2005, 06/03/2006).  Carl Sagan used to promote the search as the noblest ambition of the human species.  It’s not clear why Space.com and the SETI Institute appear to be downplaying SETI at this time.Who knows; perhaps the economy has affected funding and, like a private company, they feel the need to diversify.  Perhaps Paul Allen is re-evaluating his charitable contributions (10/12/2007).  Perhaps the public is losing interest in SETI after 50 years of failure to find anybody out there.  Or perhaps SETI advocates are smarting from accusations that they are using intelligent-design methods inconsistent with their Darwinian world view (see 12/03/2005 and this Brett Miller cartoon).  Astrobiology is a bigger, warmer tent.  The life can be microbes on planet Xircon Z589 and an astrobiologist will be happy.    That was not, however, the mission of SETI.  Jimmy Carter wrote on the Voyager record that “We hope, someday, having solved the problems we face, to join a community of galactic civilizations.”  SETI scientists don’t want to join a community of slime (do they?); they want to talk with sentient beings like ourselves.  Has SETI become impolitic again?  For the time being, discretion seems to be calling the SETI Institute to de-emphasize its raison d’etre and pretend to be regular scientists – studying earth life, meteors, climate, extrasolar planets, and normal astronomy.    If their mission has changed, so should their acronym: SETL, the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Life.  Or SET: the Search for Extra-Terrestrial whatever.  Or SE: the Search for Extra whatever.  Or just S: Search.  You don’t need radio telescopes for that.  Google is free – and you’ll find lots of aliens.(Visited 81 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Lee Berger’s New Hominid Is a Non-Starter

first_imgYet Another New Discovery Shakes up the Human Family Treeby Jerry Bergman, PhDThe human family tree has been shaken up at least four times this year alone, a fact that indicates how fragile and problematic the evidence for human evolution is.[1] Having just completed editing a 400-page book on human evolution, documented with several thousand endnotes, this topic is very much on my mind. The Oct. 14 report in New Scientist opinedHumanity’s ancient family tree is set to be shaken up by fossil skeletons found embedded in rock at a site near Johannesburg, South Africa. They could be from another long lost human cousin. “We have another major hominin discovery,” said Lee Berger at New Scientist Live on Saturday. In the past decade, Berger at the University of the Witwatersrand in South Africa and his team has [have] discovered not one but two new species of human ancestor.Based on past trends, more discoveries have generally not added to anthropologists’ conceptions of human evolution. Instead, they have have muddied the waters and created new challenges to the original human evolution narrative. This has been true from the time when Darwin proposed details of his own theory of human evolution, twelve years after his 1859 book On the Origin of Species was published. He proposed his theory in his 1871 treatise titled The Descent of Man and Selection in Relation to Sex. The word “descent” turned out to be accurate, but was not what Darwin intended to say.Darwin intended in this book to document man’s evolution upward from some unknown primate ancestor to modern humans. In other words, he attempted to support what he believed was The Ascent of Man – not man’s descent downwards. We know, however, that genetic degradation is happening due to the accumulation of mutations, as documented by Cornell geneticist, John C. Sanford.[2]  The accumulation of mutations causes the descent of humans – i.e., devolution. In his book, Genetic Entropy, Sanford documents the empirical evidence showing that the Darwinian concept of mutation and natural selection cannot create the enormous new amount of genetic information required for macroevolution to occur, much less keep the genome from gradually decaying to the point of species extinction. “Mutational load” is a problem for all species. Could this be part of reason many ‘hominid’ fossils appear to be deformed humans? Instead of being upwardly-progressing primitive human ancestors, could some be deformed humans suffering from an accumulation of mutations that was leading to genetic meltdown and the eventual extinction of that genetic line?Darwin’s views led to many racist depictions of evolutionary “progress” – an “ascent of man” from the apes. Such diagrams have long been known to be false.Australopithecus sediba, 2010Lee Berger had made previous sensational finds. One that occurred in 2010 made international headlines after his then 9-year-old son discovered the remains of what they called “a new species of human in the hills north of Johannesburg. This was Australopithecus sediba, which [the Darwinists asserted] lived around 2 million years ago and appears to be our closest ape-like ancestor.”[3] To call it a “new species” is presumptuous. It must be admitted, though, that this find was remarkable. Instead of a few bone fragments as is typical, they found fossil skeletons from theMalapa cave are so complete that scientists can see what entire skeletons looked like near the time when Homo evolved. Details of the teeth, the length of the arms and legs, and the narrow upper chest resemble earlier Australopithecus, while other tooth traits and the broad lower chest resemble humans.[4]The possibility that the individuals suffered from disease or devolution should at least be considered. That would make it a malformed Australopithecus instead of a new species as Berger claims.[5] This “Missing link found in ascent of man,” which experts say “could rewrite the story of human evolution” has already been problematic, partly due to Berger’s rush to judgment.[6] Negative opinions were voiced by some of his colleagues. For example, Tim White, the renowned paleontologist at the University of California at Berkeley, savaged Berger’s writing in his book, The Official Field Guide to the Cradle of Humankind. White complained that the book was “in many ways worse than useless, given the astonishing density of errors and misleading statements [and its] …pattern of fabrication.” His criticism got personal when he said,Berger’s rise to prominence signals a new era: one of smoke and mirrors, in which style triumphs over substance. In his short career, Berger has not in fact found very much but shows a remarkable ability to inject himself, via funding and publicity, into discoveries made by others.[7]Concerns about Berger’s work go beyond just ignoring the possibility of mutations causing some of the details in the fossils. Admittedly, mutational effects are not easy to determine, given the absence of ancient DNA in old fossils for genetic comparisons, but this difficulty hits both ways. Mutations cannot be easily proven, but they also cannot be easily disproven. What is observed is morphological variation that is influenced by reconstructions from bone fragments, which are often found in disarray. The source of the variations, though, could be due to multiple causes. This could be due to inter-species differences, or intra-species differences: i.e., individual variations, as shown by the fact that all modern humans vary – some greatly. Additionally, some of the variation could be due to mutation-caused abnormalities. One solution would be progress in techniques to find evidence of DNA. Ancient DNA has been found in some Neanderthals and Denisovans, but so far, attempts to extract DNA from Berger’s skeletons have not succeeded. Fortunately, research in this area is ongoing and may help reveal where the fossil finds fit into some known species family.To assume the differences are due to evolutionary “ascent” towards modern humans, as assumed in this case, is irresponsible and another example of seeing the world through evolution-tinted glasses. These “new species” could be either another normal variation of the ape-like Australopithecus or might be, indeed, truly entirely new species. When reading accounts of fossils found in caves, as I hear them relating that some parts look very human and others very ape-like (similar to Australopithecus), my reaction was that maybe some bones found in one general location were human and others were Australopithecus. This possibility, though, is deemed unacceptable, because the Darwinian presupposition blinds most researchers from even considering it. Similar concerns could be raised not only with Australopithecus sediba, but many if not most of the recent ‘mosaic’ fossils that, the finders say, will require rewriting the textbooks.Homo naledi (2013) The next discovery by Berger that he says will force the rewriting of textbooks was described as follows:in 2013, Berger hit the fossil jackpot again, with the remarkable discovery of thousands of bones deep inside the Rising Star cave system also near Johannesburg. These turned out to belong to a new species of tiny, small-brained hominin called Homo naledi. This fossil hominin is transforming our understanding of human evolution, not least because H. naledi lived very recently, around 250,000 [Darwin] years ago, and has a strange mix of modern and archaic features.… The new fossil hominin remains he has discovered …  haven’t yet been excavated due to the challenging nature of their location. “It’s a difficult site” … [because] the fossils are embedded in very hard rock.[8]Once again, the mix of modern and ancient characteristics indicates the possibility that the find was a mixture of modern man with some simian creatures. Although finding “thousands of bones” may reduce the likelihood of the concern that the find is a single abnormal individual, it also raises the possibility of a contamination of modern humans with some ape primate. Berger’s assessment that “The large size of the jaw and teeth means that the skeletons don’t belong to the diminutive H. naledi, and they are not A. sebida either,” ignores the possibility that some of the remains may include an abnormally large H. naledi,  or A. sebida.[9] Another possibility, as already stated, is that they are another species of the ape-like Australopithecus, or are an entirely new species, and not some ape-human link.Today’s paleoanthropologists know that the fossil record is not progressive, but scattered and confusing, subject to different interpretations. From People of the Past. The Epic Story of Human Origins. San Francisco, CA. Fog City Press. Edited by Göran Burenhult. 2003 pp. 50-51The Major Problem in Interpreting Old BonesDr. Solly Zuckerman, head of the Department of Anatomy at the University of Birmingham in England, and a scientific adviser to the highest level of the British government, studied Australopithecus fossils for 15 years with a team of scientists. He concluded, in blunt British style “They are just bloody apes.” As a result of his long-term research in this area, Zuckerman’s “scorn for the level of competence he sees displayed by paleoanthropologists is legendary.”[10]Consider the problems of interpreting finds like this. A large number of shattered bone fragments, possibly from different animals or even different species, often distorted by the forces of their burial environment, must be removed from their internment, at times their stone encasement, and then reassembled into some meaningful order. Each step in the process is heavily influenced by the evolutionary presumptions of their assembler. That’s why Zuckerman wrote, “the evolutionary inferences we base on structural comparisons are in the end only speculations.”[11] This wise observation—although made almost 50 years ago—is more true today than when it was originally made.References[1] George, Alison. 2019.
