Morgan calls for support

first_imgReggae Boyz and Leicester City captain Wes Morgan is hoping to continue his finest year in football to date with the Reggae Boyz as he rallies Jamaicans to help the national senior team to victory over Costa Rica next month in their key World Cup qualifier at the National Stadium.The Jamaicans will face off against a strong Costa Rican outfit on Friday, March 25, with the aim of pushing up the table after losing their opener to Panama (0-2) before their close 1-0 win over Haiti.Jamaica sits third in Group B with three points, with Costa Rica leading the way with six, followed by Panama on three and Haiti without a point.”I am asking the Jamaican people to come and support the Reggae Boyz and help us in our conquest to try and qualify for the World Cup,” said Morgan, who has captained Leicester City to the top of the Barclays Premier League.Morgan was speaking via a recording played at the Jamaica Football Federation’s (JFF) secretariat yesterday.”We need you guys to come to the Stadium and make as much noise as possible and give us the drive and determination to perform and give our very best. We need you all there, so the more the merrier. Please come and support us. We need you guys, and, of course, see you guys at the game, and all the very best,” he said.last_img read more

Frankie Montas adds new pitch in critical spring with A’s

CLICK HERE if you are having a problem viewing the photos on a mobile deviceMESA, Ariz. — There’s no better time for Frankie Montas to battle to make the Athletics’ starting rotation.The right-hander was a huge part of the A’s playoff run last year. He compiled a 3.88 ERA in 11 starts and displayed the best command of his career. But perhaps more important than a solid 2018 performance is baseball’s contractual restrictions.Put simply, Montas is out of minor league options. The A’s would …

SANTA CLARA — Terrell Owens said Sunday he “understands to a degree” what Antonio Brown is going through as the NFL world shuns him, and vice versa.“I’d love to talk to him personally. We all go through life, make mistakes and there are going to be things we look back on and wish we could have done differently,” Owens told reporters before the 49ers home opener. “I’m sure he’ll get to that at some point in his life. …last_img

Blood Clotting Fibers May Lead to Better Networks

first_imgWe all know that blood clotting has kept us alive many times.  We would never have survived childhood scrapes and cuts had it not been for a cascade of responses in blood that builds a network of fibers quickly upon which a scab of tissue stops the flow of blood and begins repairs.  That first network of fibers must be flexible enough to withstand stretches and strains that are likely to be ongoing as the child runs to mom (or a wounded soldier gets airlifted by medics).  How is the strain distributed to keep the network from tearing?  Scientists at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill wanted to know, and Science Daily told about their findings.    In short, individual fibers of fibrin become stiff when they stretch.  As they stiffen, the less-stretched fibers nearby have the flexibility to take up some of the strain.  Dr. Michael R. Falvo explained: “So in effect, strain stiffening in the individual fibers acts to distribute strain equitably throughout the network and thereby strengthen it.”    This simple yet elegant solution is pregnant with possibilities.  The article said that “their findings may bring about a better understanding of this remarkable strengthening mechanism and may help to guide new design strategies for engineered materials.”Long-time readers will recall that the blood-clotting cascade was one of Dr. Michael Behe’s examples of irreducible complexity in his classic book Darwin’s Black Box.  Here we see a second aspect of evidence for intelligent design in the same subject: research into the design of blood clotting leads to human design solutions.  One can envision better fishing nets, a more robust electrical grid, or a better internet because of the concept of strain distribution discovered in fibrin networks already at work in your body.  Can anyone find anything in this story for which Darwin can take credit?  It’s intelligent design from every angle.(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
