first_imgNewly re-elected Donegal County Councillor Albert Doherty has called for the appropriate authorities to outline a plan for the ‘urgent repair work’ that is required at the Barrack Hill play park in Carndonagh. The Sinn Fein Councillor said it was now time for the Donegal County Council to undertake an immediate audit on the site to ensure the safety of parents and their children coming up to the summer holidays.Speaking to Donegal Daily, Cllr Doherty said: “The Barrack Hill play park has a powerful potential to deliver for the local area and over the course of the election and in the past grave concern has been raised about the safety of the play park and the condition that it is in currently. “I have asked and written to Donegal County Council and have called for the immediate maintenance and repairs that are required on the site,” he added.“It is now time for the authorities to sanction funding and proper investment for the Barrack Hill play park.”Doherty added that the main roadway to the play park was ‘far from inviting to family and children’ and was ‘unwelcoming’ for those who wished to pay their respects at the local graveyard nearby.He continued: “The area is also an entrance avenue for those who wish to pay their respects to their loved ones at the nearby graveyard and it is unwelcoming at present and I have outlined this to the council and there is an urgent need for significant snag list of repairs to be carried out. “We have the potential to make it a safe facility and make it an attractive invite to those who wish to use it.“I think as we approach the holiday season we will see more families looking to use the area and the priority must be for use to make the area safe for them and that is why maintenance must be carried out as soon as possible.”Immediate repairs needed for Barrack Hill play park – Cllr Doherty was last modified: June 5th, 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) Tags:Carndonaghlast_img read more

first_imgFundraising friends Orlaith McKinley and Tracey McCallum helped raise thousands for Culdaff’s Hoist Away after their friend stayed in the holiday cabin over the summer. The unique venture started after Una McGinley and her wife Patricia Strain decided to build a cabin fully equipped with hoists, airflow mattresses, a shower trolley and other facilities so that other families can enjoy a break away by the sea.Patricia has MS and needs a hoist on a daily basis. So when a spot of land came up for sale next to their site, the couple decided to buy it. The project was started after the couple realised there was no place in Ireland where a family with someone who needs a hoist on a daily basis can book in for a holiday with their family and so families are often separated.Pauline McKinney, who has Carndonagh connections through her father, spent a week in the cabin over the summer with her family after travelling from Glasgow.Seeing the benefit their friend got from the venture, McKinney’s two friends McKinley (Belfast) and McCallum (Glasgow) helped raise more than €8,000.The idea sparked into life when McCallum had a look at Hoist Away’s Facebook Page and saw that they were asking for 90 people to raise 1,000 euro each. From here, the idea snowballed as the pairing took part in the kiltwalk challenge – walking from 26 miles from St Andrews in Scotland to Monifieth.The Inishowen initiative is currently raising money in order to build a second Cabin, with €90,000 needed to make the idea a reality.Two kiltwalkers raise thousands for Donegal’s Hoist Away was last modified: October 5th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare 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_img(Visited 253 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 How can scientists and reporters write articles on “evolution” when evidence shows organisms died or didn’t change?What’s going on here? Frequently, evolutionists classify papers and articles as being about “evolution” when the evidence is opposite of evolution. Darwin needs life to evolve from bacteria to human beings. He doesn’t need them to stay the same or die out. What’s evolution got to do with it?Deep Macroevolutionary Impact of Humans on New Zealand’s Unique Avifauna (Current Biology). Humans have devastated birds on the New Zealand islands. Three Darwinists talk about it, and prognosticate about how long it would take for the island nation to recover. Phys.org summarizes their thoughts:Using computers to simulate a range of human-induced extinction scenarios, the researchers found that it would take approximately 50 million years to recover the number of species lost since human’s first arrived in New Zealand. If all species currently under threat are allowed to go extinct, they report, it would require about 10 million years of evolutionary time to return to the species numbers of today.Now, wait a cotton-pickin’ minute here: the only data these evolutionists have is the number of birds that have gone extinct since the first humans landed on the shore. What do they mean it would take 50 million years to recover, and another 10 million years if the endangered species go extinct? Oh, that’s it: that’s how much “evolutionary time” would have to pass for Charlie to invent new birds to fill in the gaps left by the dead. Well, ain’t that convenient! These Darwinians will be long gone before anyone can hold them accountable for telling a fib (see confabulation and confibulation in the Darwin dictionary).Extinction and the temporal distribution of macroevolutionary bursts (bioRxiv). This preprint mentions “macroevolutionary bursts” in the title, but the actual evidence talks about extinction and the “paradox of stasis.” Readers shouldn’t care about “microevolution,” because that is not controversial to creationists. They want Darwinians to come up with evidence of macroevolution – large-scale change. They want organisms to climb tall “adaptive peaks” on the fitness landscape, and turn into wondrous new things. They want to see the evolution of new phyla, orders, classes and families. Where is it?Phenotypic evolution through deep time is slower than expected from microevolutionary rates. This is the paradox of stasis. Previous models suggest stasis occurs because populations track adaptive peaks that typically move on million-year intervals, raising the equally perplexing question of why peaks shifts are so rare. Here, we consider the possibility that peaks can move more rapidly than populations can adapt, resulting in extinction. We model peak movement with explicit population dynamics, parameterized with published microevolutionary parameters. Allowing extinction greatly increases the parameter space of peak movements that yield the appearance of stasis observed in real data through deep time. Our work highlights population ecology as an important contributor to macroevolutionary dynamics, presenting an alternative perspective on the paradox of stasis where apparent constraint on phenotypic evolution in deep time reflects our restricted view of the subset of earth’s lineages that were fortunate enough to reside on relatively stable peaks.Did anyone see macroevolution pass by in this paragraph? No; Darwin floated by like a will-o’-the-wisp, a ghost, an imaginary figure threading through a forest of stasis and extinction. Oh, but in unobservable “deep time,” Stuff Happens.Death is on Our Side: Paleontological Data Drastically Modify Phylogenetic Hypotheses (bioRxiv). Here’s another preprint by Darwinians that glorifies death as a means of evolution. Two authors, Koch and Parry, think that their fellow Darwinians have tried to trace Darwinian progress by looking at the living. They need to study the dead. But actually, how clearly do dead things show macroevolution?Fossils are the only remaining evidence of the majority of species that have ever existed, providing a direct window into events in evolutionary history that shaped the diversification of life on Earth. Phylogenies underpin our ability to make sense of evolution but are routinely inferred only from data available from living organisms. Although extinct taxa have been shown to add crucial information for inferring macroevolutionary patterns and processes including ancestral states, paleobiogeography and diversification dynamics, the role that fossils play in inferring the tree of life itself is controversial. Since the early years of phylogenetic systematics, different studies have dismissed the impact of fossils due to their incompleteness, championed their ability to overturn phylogenetic hypotheses or concluded that their behavior is indistinguishable from that of extant taxa.So far they have discredited the ability to fossils to inform evolution! Can Darwinism be rescued from this evidence?Here we show paleontological data has a remarkable effect in phylogenetic inference. Fossils often have higher levels of topological influence than extant taxa, while inducing unique topological rearrangements. Previous studies have proposed a suite of explanations for the topological behavior of fossils, such as their retention of unique morphologies or their ability to break long branches. We develop predictive models that demonstrate that the possession of distinctive character state combinations is the primary predictor of the degree of induced topological change, and that the relative impact of taxa (fossil and extant) can be predicted to some extent before any analysis. Our results bolster the consensus of recent empirical studies by showing the unique role of paleontological data in phylogenetic inference, and provide the first quantitative assessment of its determinants, with broad consequences for the design of taxon sampling in both morphological and total-evidence analyses.Well, if you expect their promises to be fulfilled, you will be shocked that macroevolution is only mentioned one more time in the paper– and that just in passing, with no evidence to back it up. They say nothing about fitness, novelty, innovation or any other notion of positive selection leading to something new and different. Like most Darwinians, they just assume evolution occurred from all the things that went extinct. In the end, they only hope that more analysis of fossils might help solve the contradictions between molecular and paleontological tree-making (phylogenetic inference). By the way, when they say “Death is on Our Side,” to what side are they referring? Apparently, the side of Darwin storytellers.Causes and Consequences of Pleistocene Megafaunal Extinctions as Revealed from Rancho La Brea Mammals (Current Biology). This paper does not discuss macroevolution specifically, but it does try to explain why some predators died out (i.e., saber-tooth cats) and others survived (like coyotes). It does, however, discuss “adaptation” (often a synonym for Darwinian evolution), and extinction is once again the hero of the evolutionary plot. The press release about Larisa DeSantis from Vanderbilt University explains.It’s likely that those giant predators went extinct due to climate change, the arrival of humans to their environment or a combination of the two, she said, and her team is working to clarify the cause of the extinction with multiple colleagues across six institutions as part of a separate on-going study.What they know is predators alive today in the Americas were better able to adapt their diets. Instead of only feeding on large prey, they could effectively hunt small mammals, scavenge what they could from carcasses or do both.DeSantis conveniently leaves her options open. Extinction occurred because of climate change, or the arrival of humans, or a combination of the two. Cats preferred the forest, but wolves and coyotes preferred the plains, but their hunting grounds did overlap. Coyotes lasted because they learned to be opportunistic, surviving on predation and scavenging, or on human pets and trash cans. But wait; there are still mountain lions in California. DeSantis performs micro-divination on tooth samples to come up with a story that is little better than a post-hoc rationalization for the observable facts: some survived, others went extinct.Specifically, the cougar (Puma concolor), which survived the extinction event, consumed both flesh and bones with clear evidence of scavenging, in stark contrast to the extinct American lion (Panthera atrox) that had ∼30% broken canines and primarily ate tough flesh; the cougar’s opportunistic diet may have been key to its survival.The dire wolf (Canis dirus), the most abundant carnivoran at La Brea, ranged from Canada to South America during the Pleistocene before becoming extinct. However, the coyote (Canis latrans), a smaller canid, survived the late Pleistocene extinction event, as did gray wolves, cougars, bobcats, and other smaller carnivorans. As coyotes are highly opportunistic today, eating smaller prey (e.g., rodents and lagomorphs) and also scavenging larger prey, such as deer, their “key to success” may have been similar to the La Brea cougars. Alternatively, coyotes—in contrast to cougars—may have opportunistically altered their diet following the extinction of numerous large predators and prey species, only recently becoming true opportunists.But wait. Why couldn’t Darwinism help the unlucky ones develop opportunistic diets? If the big cats and dogs were too big, why didn’t natural selection make them smaller? Out of all the dire wolves from Canada to South America, did none of them adapt in those ways? When you raise the perhapsimaybecouldness index, phrases like “may have” can save you from falsification.By the way, nothing evolved. Certain animals went extinct. Others survived.last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Last summer, farmers in the Midwest got an unwelcome surprise after planting native seed on Conservation Reserve Program acres. Palmer amaranth, the aggressive and hard-to-kill weed, had established in droves. As a possible solution, some states declared Palmer a noxious weed, which prohibits its sale and transport.“I’ve had seed growers call me,” said Pat Tranel, molecular weed scientist in the crop sciences department at the University of Illinois. “Their businesses are up in the air because of this. Unless they have a way to certify their product is Palmer-free, they can’t sell it.”The typical testing method involves growing a sample of seeds until the plants are large enough to be identified, but this is a slow and potentially unreliable process.“It all takes a long time, and sometimes the seeds don’t germinate during the test,” Tranel said. “Alternatively, there’s a company that will test individual seeds using DNA sequencing, but they’re charging $100 per seed. It’s not cost-effective.”Tranel and graduate student Brent Murphy developed a way around these issues. Their low-cost method can identify Palmer amaranth DNA from within a mixed sample without having to grow the plants. The assay, which uses a method known as quantitative PCR, can detect genetic variations unique to Palmer even when flooded with samples from closely related species, including waterhemp.“Palmer, redroot pigweed, waterhemp — they all have tiny black seeds that basically look the same. We needed a way to efficiently extract DNA from pooled seed samples and, if it’s present, identify Palmer,” Tranel said.Once Tranel and Murphy developed this assay, they worked with U of I Extension’s Plant Clinic to optimize the test for mixed seed samples. Diagnostic outreach Extension specialist Diane Plewa and Plant Clinic technician Elizabeth Phillippi began trying different methods to extract DNA from seed. The assay is very sensitive, but if DNA is not correctly extracted from a lone Palmer amaranth seed in a mixed sample, it won’t be detected.“The trick is to make sure every seed is ground up during the extraction process,” Plewa said.The researchers were able to consistently detect a single Palmer amaranth seed when mixed with 99 waterhemp seeds, and they believe the assay could achieve even greater sensitivity with additional refinement.The Plant Clinic has optimized a protocol for commercial testing of seed lots.“We have a test that we feel very confident in,” Plewa said. “We are offering the service now, for $50 per sample.”For more information, call 217-649-3941 or visit the Plant Clinic website.The article, “A quantitative assay for Amaranthus palmeri identification,” is published in Pest Management Science. Authors Brent Murphy and Pat Tranel are housed in the Department of Crop Sciences at U of I, and Diane Plewa, Elizabeth Phillippi, and Suzanne Bissonnette are from U of I Extension’s Plant Clinic. The work was supported by a USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture Hatch grant.last_img read more

first_imgIt looks like the first runner has crossed the finish line in the race to bringing background location functionality to the iPhone, and the winner is Loopt, an early entry in the location-based services arena.Aside from multitasking (or pseudo-multitasking, if you will) and those helpful organizer folders, background location was one of the most anticipated features of iOS 4, and Loopt clearly shows us why – even though it’s just the tip of the background-location iceberg.Persistent location means one thing – you don’t need to interact with your iPhone and let it know that you want it to check your location and give you information based on that data. Instead, you can allow your iPhone to consistently monitor your location in various apps and when it comes across a certain set of conditions, notify you. In the case of Loopt, this means that you don’t have to walk around town checking in at every location you go. As Kim-Mai Cutler of Venture Beat writes, “users can now continuously share where they are with specific friends so they don’t have to constantly “check-in” to places. If a friend happens to be nearby, the app will send you a push notification alerting you. (They can still do check-ins for acquaintances and a broader group of friends, however.)”As we wrote when we first heard about background location, the “list of ideas for background location are endless”, from time- and place-specific advertising to the types of notifications we’ll see from Loopt. Something like Urbanspon, so you can know when deals pop up around you for happy hour? Or maybe a traffic notification app that can alert you to a jam on the highway your driving ahead? What if Craigsphone could look up apartments as you travel around town and let you know when you near one meeting your requirements? Outside of the LBS arena, what apps are you excited about having access to your location in the background? mike melanson Related Posts Tags:#Apple#Location#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…center_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…last_img read more

first_imgHoping to lure cloud developers to the iCloud platform, Apple on Monday unveiled CloudKit, which gives developers “effectively free, with limits” storage for server-based apps. “You’ve gotta pay somebody to host it all,” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president for software engineering. Before CloudKit, that somebody was Amazon, Google, or Microsoft.At first glance, it sure sounds like it. CloudKit scales based on the number of users, and developers get up to a petabyte of assets an application relies on (such as images, user data, and other resources), one terabyte of database storage, and “all the bandwidth you could use,” Federighi said. Apple details what it gives developers free: How Intelligent Data Addresses the Chasm in Cloud Serverless Backups: Viable Data Protection for … Related Posts Sync, a serious problem for iCloud developers currently, is another issue Apple promises to tackle:The core idea behind iCloud is to eliminate explicit synchronization between devices. A user never needs to think about syncing and your app never interacts directly with iCloud servers. When you adopt iCloud storage APIs as described in this document, changes appear automatically on all the devices attached to an iCloud account. Your users get safe, consistent, and transparent access to their personal content everywhere.Developers are thrilled at the prospect of integrating their apps more tightly with iOS and iCloud.  “With extensibility in iOS 8, we’re excited to bring our users more options and the ability to seamlessly access all of their Box files right from within their favorite apps, eliminating the need to create additional copies,” Aaron Levie, Box founder and CEO said in a statement. “This is a major milestone for the Post-PC enterprise, and a bellwether moment for openness. “In yesterday’s keynote, when Federighi demonstrated saving a document to the cloud, the options for cloud storage included iCloud, Microsoft OneDrive, and Box. Noticeably absent from this cloud storage integration? Dropbox.Could it be in part because of Apple’s history with Dropbox? Steve Jobs notoriously called it a “feature,” and integration with iCloud certainly makes it look that way. Or could it be because Samsung bundles Dropbox with its devices, and gives away free storage? I contacted Dropbox for comment; a spokeswoman said that “we don’t have anything to share at this time.”What’s The Security?Apple also talked up the security aspects of iCloud. Via iCloud authentication, customers can sign in with their iCloud Apple ID without sharing personal information.In typical Apple fashion, it glossed over details, such as the type of security CloudKit uses for user authentication. The iCloud Design Guide barely mentions authentication. However, an Apple  support knowledge base article divulges a little more:When you access iCloud services using Apple’s built-in apps (for example, Mail, Contacts, and Calendar apps on iOS or OS X), authentication is handled using a secure token. Using secure tokens eliminates the need to store your iCloud password on devices and computers. Even if you choose to use a third-party application to access your iCloud data, your username and password are sent over an encrypted SSL connection.Developers are still waiting for the details, but initially, several developers commented that free storage is not enough in a cross-platform development world. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Cloud Hosting for WordPress: Why Everyone is Mo… jodi mardesich Cian Clark, a developer, blogged that CloudKit sounds great, but cautioned about one “glaringly obvious point” that developers shouldn’t ignore—the potential for vendor lock-in:Storing data with CloudKit comes with huge risks of Vendor Lock-In which should not be overlooked, and as the data storage needs of an application expand, it’s worth considering the use of an mBaaS rather than relying on Cloud Kit alone for storage needs. If the queue for the CloudKit presentation at WWDC is any indication, developers are anxious to learn more. This sounds pretty generous compared to Amazon’s free tier for its cloud services, or Google’s free tier. It’s not a direct comparison, however. Amazon limits its free services to a specific number of hours, which Apple doesn’t, and its free tier data storage for various services is measured in megabytes and gigabytes, while Apple is talking about offering up to a petabyte for assets and a terabyte for storage. Googles gives developers up to 5GB of storage. However, despite the virtually free cloud services, Apple isn’t really competing with Amazon or Google in the war for cloud developers. What Apple appears to be doing is keeping the iOS developer ecosystem vibrant, said Quinton Alsbury, co-founder and president of product innovation for Roambi.“I really think it’s an attempt to keep innovation iOS centric, and keep the new ideas and new developers doing their first versions on iOS,” he told me. Most developers, especially small shops, write their first apps for iOS. Not having to worry about server-side components, such as authentication, “makes it even easier,” Alsbury said.CloudKit “helps developers eliminate the need for writing server code and maintaining servers,” Apple said in a press release. CloudKit gives developers a client-side programming model, and server side functions like app logic, iCloud authentication, asset storage, database storage, search, and notifications, Federighi said.In its iCloud Design Guide, Apple lays out its approach:A user never needs to think about syncing and your app never interacts directly with iCloud servers.Apple’s new appeal to cloud developers harkens back to its old, familiar mantra: “It just works.” That’s a great pitch for consumers, but will it appeal to developers, especially those who expect to tinker with server instances, virtual machines, and operating systems on cloud platforms like Amazon’s, Google’s, or Microsoft’s?A pre-release iCloud Design Guide for incorporating iCloud into your app explains the benefits of designing for iCloud:iCloud is a free service that lets users access their personal content on all their devices—wirelessly and automatically via Apple ID. iCloud does this by combining network-based storage with dedicated APIs, supported by full integration with the operating system. Apple provides server infrastructure, backup, and user accounts, so you can focus on building great iCloud-enabled apps. Tags:#Apple#cloud#CloudKit#WWDC 2014 last_img read more
