Trainer Allen Aldrich set to return to Humboldt County Fair once again this summer

first_imgFERNDALE >> Growing up in Pleasanton in the 1960s and ‘70s meant you were inevitably around the horse-racing industry.The town wasn’t that big and it seemed half the people in Pleasanton were involved with horses in some capacity. For Allen Aldrich, his initial involvement was indirect, from his time working at the Pleasanton Fairways Golf Course that was located in the infield of the race track.“I worked at the course and was around the horses every day,” recalled Aldrich. “I would be out …last_img

Paleontologist Becomes an Outcast After Publicly Renouncing Faith in Darwinism

first_img(Visited 2,018 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Contributing author Jerry Bergman has two books out on the persecution of Darwin skeptics, and a third one is coming out soon. As you read case after case, you will be shocked at the bigoted intolerance of the Darwin lobby against anyone who doubts their views. Scientists, reporters, teachers and other professionals have lost jobs, been denied tenure, and otherwise marginalized or ridiculed for –what? the crime of finding the Darwinian faith unconvincing in one way or another. Darwin bigots take extraordinary efforts to prevent criticism of their views from being heard. If you value freedom of expression and association, and think science needs to hear dissenting views from a fossilized consensus, do your part to defend the rights of Darwin skeptics.  —Ed. by Sal CordovaOnce upon a time, the distinguished paleontologist Günter Bechly was on German national TV celebrating Darwinism, but then something happened. He read books about intelligent design and found them compelling. On a web page, Bechly describes part of his transformation from Darwinist to an advocate of intelligent design (ID). His story is also told by the Discovery Institute in a YouTube video.Günter Bechly’s views changed when he read ID books (Discovery Institute)Though Bechly now accepts ID, he would not be classified as a typical creationist. He had no religious background in his youth or adult life. Nevertheless, it is obvious he has had a radical change of views on many levels after making an honest effort to learn about the reasons some scientists doubt Darwinism. These radical changes include his conversion from Darwinism to ID first, and later from atheism to Catholicism. This did not sit well with the Darwin lobby.A follow-up insult incident happened recently. As David Klinghoffer points out at Evolution News & Science Today, Wikipedia erased the memory of Bechly’s accomplishments.Günter Bechly is a distinguished paleontologist, specializing in fossil dragonflies, exquisitely preserved in amber for tens of millions of years. After revealing his support for the theory of intelligent design, he was pushed out as a curator at the State Museum of Natural History in Stuttgart, Germany. He subsequently joined Discovery Institute’s Center for Science & Culture as a Senior Fellow. Now we learn that our colleague has suffered another act of censorship: he has been erased from Wikipedia, ostensibly for not being “notable” enough.But this recent insult by Wikipedia is nothing compared to what happened earlier at the German Natural History Museum. Evolution News reports:Now, with the debate about intelligent design (ID) taking place on an increasingly international stage, we reach across the Atlantic to name Germany’s Natural History Museum in Stuttgart as our 2017 Censor of the Year.If you follow us at Evolution News, you’ll already have an inkling of the story that lies behind this choice. On Friday we announced a new Senior Fellow with the CSC, the distinguished German paleo-entomologist Günter Bechly, formerly curator of amber and fossil insects at the Natural History Museum. In welcoming Dr. Bechly, a specialist in dragonflies, we left out one thing. After coming out as an ID sympathizer in 2015, following his private exploration of the evidence for design in nature, Bechly was the victim of retaliation and censorship by his institution. Though the addition of Dr. Bechly to our scientific community is a wonderful boon to us, the ensuing parting of the ways with his museum came with heavy personal, professional, and health costs.Bechly joins a line of several former Darwinian scientists who rejected the naturalistic story for the origin of biological complexity, and suffered for it. The list includes Dean Kenyon, Richard Lumsden, Caroline Crocker and many others.Sal Cordova, who has worked as a scientist, engineer, and a leader in the ID movement, has 4 science degrees and is working on a PhD.

‘Born-frees’ to help build a more prosperous SA

first_img24 May 2014Young South Africans, especially those born in 1994, when the country first attained democracy, are looking forward to contributing to a more prosperous South Africa.The “born-frees”, as they are known, voted for the first time in the country’s general elections a few weeks ago, and are looking forward to taking part in running of the country and contributing to the economy.Tshifhiwa Magadzhe, 20, from Limpopo province, was among the born-frees attending Jacob Zuma’s inauguration for a second term as President of South Africa at the Union Buildings in Pretoria on Saturday.The second-year information technology student at the Tshwane University of Technology told SAnews that she couldn’t wait to get her diploma and become part of the workforce.Asked what democracy means to her, she simply said it meant more opportunities for the previously disadvantaged and a better life for all. “I have voted so that people’s lives can be changed for the better and so that the country’s economy grows,” Magadzhe said.“Democracy also means equal opportunities for all,” she said, adding that the government needed to create more opportunities for young people to enable them to become part of the system.Twenty-year-old Steven Mason, a second-year administration student from North West province, echoed Magadzhe’s sentiments. “I am glad that our country offers plenty of opportunities for young people. As young people we are given opportunities to be part of the system,” he said.Other young people are looking forward to starting their own businesses and creating job opportunities for the unemployed youth.Jason Wilkins, a third-year business management student, told SAnews that he wass looking forward to starting his own business empire. “Government must take the interests of young people to heart,” he said.Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more

When Will Twitter Really Go Real Time? And What Will Change When it Does?

first_imgfrederic lardinois A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Related Posts Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Tags:#Trends#twitter#web center_img Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… In its current state, Twitter is a strange mix of real-time features like search and the slow polling mechanism that desktop clients use to grab new messages. As Twitter puts a limit on how many times per hour a client can check for updates, most of the conversations on Twitter are slow and arduous. When Seesmic released its new desktop and web applications last week, however, the company also mentioned that its applications would soon be able to update Twitter streams in real time, including @replies and direct messages. While the Seesmic team was tight-lipped about how exactly they are going to do this (maybe by tapping into Twitter’s Streaming API?), we can’t help but wonder how this will change the dynamics on the service.Twitter as a Chat RoomCurrently, conversations on Twitter are asynchronous and sluggish. If they happened in real-time, however, Twitter would start to look and feel more like an IM client. Even on FriendFeed, which was once seen as a possible Twitter challenger but which never quite got any mainstream traction, conversations now happen in real time. While Twitter is often mentioned as a vehicle for real-time conversations, in reality, conversations on Twitter aren’t happening in real time at all.Once Twitter turns into more of a chatroom, both Twitter’s website and third-party clients will also have to improve the way they display these conversations. Seesmic’s ‘message’ view looks like a step in the right direction. The Seesmic web app features a TweetDeck-like column-based view of your Twitter streams and searches, but it also separates ‘real’ conversations that you participate in from the rest of the application. Other desktop apps like Nambu for the Mac feature rudimentary support for displaying conversation threads, but most clients currently don’t do a very good job at highlighting conversations and mostly look at Twitter as a broadcast medium.Once our streams really start moving on Twitter, we will also need better ways to filter and manage our subscriptions (including better spam filters). Right now, scanning a list of updates is easy, and most clients support search and the ability to create groups, but maybe automatic filtering based on the kind of messages we pay attention to will also help us to manage the information stream. What Do You Think?We will have to see how all of this will play out in the next few months once Seesmic (and others, we assume) will release their updated clients, but we think that this could potentially take Twitter into a completely new direction.

Feast or Famine

first_imgEntrepreneurs, solopreneurs, and small businesspeople often have to make a choice between feast and famine.FamineIt’s not uncommon for a small business to end up with so much work that they can’t possibly take on another client. They don’t have any capacity for new work, and taking on new clients means that they may not perform as well for their existing clients, work more hours, or hire additional help.Once they have enough work, they stop their sales and marketing work. They quit prospecting. They stop spending their time and money on marketing, and they hunker down and serve their clients. They’re very happy with their income, and they’re happy with their work.But then, inevitably, they lose a client or two. Given a long enough time line, you will lose every client you now serve. The problem is that you don’t know when that will occur and why, and you will lose many clients through no fault of your own.So begins the famine. But it takes time to build a funnel, and this is where small businesses get themselves in a position where survival becomes difficult.FeastSometimes a small business can have too many clients. So begins the feast. There is an abundance of work, so much so that there is no easy way to take care of all the business.The last thing in the world a small business with too much business can imagine doing is building a funnel. But there are lots of ways to mitigate the potential problems of having more business than you can take on. You can hire contractors to do some work. You can push the start dates for projects. You can outsource some of the work. You can grow your business and hire real employees.But the last thing you can do is give up on the sales and marketing activities that bring in new opportunities. You are always one or two clients away from an existential threat to your business.You have to make a choice between feast or famine. If you believe that dealing with too much work is a problem, try dealing with the problem of not having enough business to be able to keep the lights on. Essential Reading!

Tight security plan for Delhi World Cup ties

first_imgA top Delhi Police official on Wednesday said that militants’ threat perception to the cricket World Cup will be taken into account while providing security for the four matches to be played at the Ferozeshah Kotla starting next month.Delhi Police have made elaborate security arrangements for the World Cup matches at the Ferozeshah Kotla.Karnail Singh, joint commissioner of police ( northern range) gave the assurance a day after he and other top police officers discussed the World Cup security arrangements with the Delhi and District Cricket Association ( DDCA) officials.With this second meeting between the DDCA and the Delhi police – the first one was held at the Police Headquarters on December 27 – over the security and traffic arrangements and the tickets for Delhi matches going into print on Thursday, the preparations for the World Cup have begun in the right earnest here.” The DDCA officials have told us about their requirements and we also apprised them what we would be requiring. Basically, we discussed what needs to be done during the matches. Security for matches at the Kotla has never been a problem in the past,” Karnail Singh told M AIL T ODAY . When asked about the steps that would be taken to meet the threat perception from certain militant outfits, he said: ” We will be having the threat perception in mind while providing the security.” Delhi Police have told DDCA officials that all people, who would be on official duty during the matches, will have to be verified, whatever their numbers may be. All employment and deployment will have to have the police’s permission.advertisementSpecial care will be being taken to scan all the items that will be taken inside the stadium. For this purpose, DDCA will hire big scanner machines to check items like the food, beverages, huge television equipment and cameras etc to ensure safety for all.As part of the security steps, 39 items, including plastic water bottles and coins, will be banned inside the stadium. Some of the other things that will not be allowed, include sharp- edged items, alcohol, pens, pencils, lathis , hard and long sticks for carrying flags ( only slim ones will be allowed), musical instruments, balloons, whistles, papers, binoculars, cameras and laser lights etc.” Spectators will be allowed only paper cups to drink water. We will publish advertisements in newspapers well in advance so that spectators know exactly what all they can’t take inside the stadium,” Ravinder Manchanda, a member of the DDCA security committee and joint secretary ( club), told M AIL T ODAY . ” We will also be very strict while designating people on duty during the matches. In the past, we have made many duty cards but this time we will cut down on numbers; only the minimal required people will get the cards,” he said.The Board of Control for Cricket India ( BCCI) has said that it will fully rely on the local police for security at all eight venues hosting World Cup matches.DDCA will, however, hire private security personnel for checking tickets at the turnstiles and they will also be posted at corporate boxes.However, the capacity of the stadium, which is 47,000- plus, will not be reduced. The tickets will carry detailed instructions on the ‘ dos’ and ‘ donts’ as well as the names of banned items.Only the vehicles of players and match officials – umpires and match referee – would be allowed inside the stadium.While space for only 250 VVIP cars will be allowed in the park in front of the main Kotla gate, spectators will have the parkand- ride facility.Satyendra Garg, joint commissioner of police ( traffic), said that two spots have been identified for spectators to park their vehicles.” Mata Sundari Marg and Shanti Van, which are in the vicinity of the Kotla, can accommodate quite a large number of vehicles. There will also be shuttle services from two Metro stations – the New Delhi railway station and Pragati Maidan,” Garg told MAIL TODAY . ” We have asked DDCA to arrange for buses and Qualis jeeps in association with the Delhi Transport Corporation to ferry spectators from the Metro stations,” he said.Kotla will host the South Africa- West Indies ( Feb 24), West Indies- Netherlands ( Feb 28), Kenya- Canada ( Mar 7) and India- Netherlands ( Mar 9) matches.last_img read more
