The girl described the man as heavy-set with close-cropped dark hair, possibly Latino, and wearing a blue dress shirt and tie. He drove a metallic green four-door newer car that might have had paper plates, such as those on new vehicles. Students were warned via the public address system to stay away from the car if they see it and to report any suspicious activity to school officials. “Do not approach the car if you see it, and do not be fooled into getting into this car to help him,” the warning said. Parents were alerted about the ruse via an automated phone message from the William S. Hart Union High School District, spokeswoman Pat Willett said. Elementary school districts also were notified. “This young lady was very savvy,” Willett said. “But we wanted to encourage parents and teachers to warn students about this danger.” SANTA CLARITA – A man posing as an undercover police officer Friday morning at Saugus High School tried to lure a girl from campus, saying he needed to question her in an investigation, sheriff’s officials said. The girl did not comply and wasn’t harmed, but the incident prompted a mass warning of parents and students and resulted in increased sheriff’s patrols around the campus. A man in his early 20s approached the 17-year-old girl at 7:30 a.m. in the campus parking lot, flashed a badge and claimed to be a sheriff’s deputy on a narcotics investigation, sheriff’s Lt. Larry Gump said. The badge was not a Sheriff’s Department badge, he added. The man asked the girl whether she could meet him at the mall and help him and she gave him her cell-phone number, Gump said. School officials said the girl then called her father, who contacted the school. The man has called the girl several times since then, Gump said. Marc Winger, superintendent of the Newhall School District, said his elementary school children were encouraged to walk home in groups. “We also sent a phone message to parents, figuring some of them might want to pick their kids up today,” Winger said.

In this instance, Northern Lights College is collaborating with the Fort St. John Literacy Society and the Fort Nelson Community Literacy Society.Peace River North MLA Pat Pimm said, “Strong reading, writing and math skills are the starting point for many adults looking to upgrade their education, enter skills training programs and secure a good job here in Peace Country.”The BC government says funding is distributed to non-profit community groups to offer free literacy training that is easily accessible in local places such as schools, Aboriginal friendship centres and community centres.Advertisement More than $25 million has been invested by the BC government in community adult literacy programs, helping approximately 100,000 adults improve their reading, writing and math skills, since 2001.
France-born Tighazoui, who was not part of the Champions League-winning team last November, curled the set-piece over the defensive wall and past outstanding goalkeeper Sylvain Gbohouo.Earlier, the VAR system being trialled in several European countries with mixed results, was used for the first time in Africa after 58 minutes at Stade Mohamed V.The Zambian referee initially awarded a second penalty within three minutes to Wydad only to change his mind after running to the sideline and watching replays of the incident.While the huge Moroccan crowd in the 65,000-seat stadium were naturally with the decision, it did appear that a Wydad player fell theatrically to the ground inside the box.VAR was supposed to debut in Africa last month during the Nations Championship in Morocco, but trial runs were held instead.The system involves off-field officials assisting referees with key decisions, including awarding goals and penalties and ruling on offsides, red cards and mistaken identities.Wydad squandered the early spot-kick when Ivorian Gbohouo correctly guessed which side of the goal Walid el Karti would aim at and parried the ball to safety.The home team dominated the annual one-off match throughout only to be defied by Gbohouo until 28-year-old winger Tighazoui struck.Success for the Casablanca club continued a run of Moroccan football success that began last November when they defeated Al Ahly of Egypt to win the Champions League a second time.Morocco qualified for the World Cup under French coach Herve Renard the same month and a home-based national side won the African Nations Championship 20 days ago.By winning the Super Cup for the fist time at the third attempt, Wydad made Tunisian Faouzi Benzarti the outright second most successful coach in CAF competitions with five titles.He won two with Esperance and two with another Tunisian club, Etoile Sahel, before being hired by Wydad this year after Hussein Amoutta was fired over poor domestic form.Portuguese Manuel Jose holds the record for CAF club titles won by a coach, guiding Al Ahly to four Champions League and four Super Cup triumphs.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Tighazoui scored the winner as Wydad Casablanca won the CAF Super Cup © AFP / STRINGERCASABLANCA, Morocco, Feb 24 – Amin Tighazoui scored from a free-kick to give Wydad Casablanca a 1-0 CAF Super Cup victory over TP Mazembe Saturday as the video assistant referee (VAR) system was used for the first time in Africa.The goal that separated Champions League winners Wydad of Morocco and Confederation Cup title-holders Mazembe of the Democratic Republic of Congo came on 83 minutes in Casablanca.

Roberto Di Matteo defended his decision to make eight changes to Chelsea’s starting line-up for their defeat at Liverpool.The interim boss rested a number of players ahead of the forthcoming Champions League final.Chelsea must win that final against Bayern Munich to qualify for next season’s tournament after their 4-1 loss at Anfield ended any lingering chance of a top-four finish.“We’ve come so far because we’ve used the energy and players we have in the squad. That is the only way to be in the race until now. I have no regrets,” Di Matteo told Sky.“We’ve had very intense games and to get yourself up for all those has been a big demand. I thought tonight fresh legs would give us a better chance.“We’ve got a game on Sunday and we want to finish our last game well to go into the Champions League final in a positive mood.”More reaction later.Was Di Matteo’s team selection justified?

“Evolution is a fact!” Carl Sagan stated emphatically on TV in his 1980 Cosmos series (now in reruns on The Science Channel). Following this lead, many evolutionists repeat this four-word phrase, often augmenting it like, Evolution is a fact, like gravity (see association). This motto has some interesting properties in its effects on scientific research. Anything that is a fact no longer needs to be proved. It no longer needs evidence. It can be taken as a given, a first principle from which other principles can be deduced, and a framework into which all empirical data can be fitted. Has Charles Darwin become the new Aristotle? Here are some recent examples of evolutionary reasoning in scientific journals and science news articles. Look for instances of deducing conclusions from the premise “evolution is a fact.” Also look for reasoning that, since evolution is a “fact,” it must be capable of accomplishing any kind of design work found among the world’s amazing living creatures.Octopus elbows: Noticing that octopuses have an uncanny ability to bend their boneless tentacles into shapes resembling vertebrate elbows, EurekAlert says this about how the ability evolved: “The presence of similar structural features and control strategies in articulated limbs (for example, jointed vertebrate arms) and flexible octopus arms suggests that these qualities have evolved convergently in octopuses and in vertebrates, and it also suggests that an articulated limb–controlled at the level of joints–is the optimal solution to the challenge of achieving precise point-to-point movements by a limb.” (Emphasis added in all quotes.) The authors of the original paper in Current Biology1 went further. “Despite the evolutionary gap and morphological differences, humans and octopuses evolved similar strategies when fetching food to the mouth,” Sumbre, Hochner et al. said. They even postulated that this ability arose at the dawn of animals, hundreds of millions of years ago:Because the hypothetical common ancestor of cephalopods and vertebrates dates back to the beginning of Cambrian era (about 540 million years ago), fetching appears to be a genuine and rare case of evolutionary functional convergence, where two independent attributes (morphology and neural control) coevolved to achieve a common goal. We therefore suggest that the combination of a kinematically constrained articulated limb and a movement control strategy with simpler, more stereotypical movements in intrinsic coordinates offers an optimal solution for achieving precise point-to-point movements.Commenting on this study in the same issue of Current Biology,2 Scott L. Hooper explored the idea that function can give rise to form, by evolution. Noting that “muscles predate the evolution of hard body parts,” Hooper personified evolution into a creative programmer: “flexibly creating different ‘skeletons’ of stiffened muscles against which other muscles can act may be the mother of all motor control strategies.” Live Science picked up on this line, also, stating that “The similarity of structural features and control strategies between jointed vertebrate arms and flexible octopus limbs suggests that these configurations evolved separately in octopuses and vertebrates, a result scientists call an example of convergent evolution.” In none of these papers or news articles did any of the authors attempt to connect function to form by a series of plausible evolutionary steps. Apparently, they didn’t have to – since evolution is already a fact.Bat digital computing: With their sonar-guided aerial acrobatics, bats are true wonders of the class Mammalia. The only mammals to fly under their own power, bats make up one fifth of all mammalian species, said Michael Balter in Science Now. But how did they get the ability to fly? Surprisingly, a paper in PNAS3 found a tale in the absence of evidence:The earliest fossil bats resemble their modern counterparts in possessing greatly elongated digits to support the wing membrane, which is an anatomical hallmark of powered flight. To quantitatively confirm these similarities, we performed a morphometric analysis of wing bones from fossil and modern bats. We found that the lengths of the third, fourth, and fifth digits (the primary supportive elements of the wing) have remained constant relative to body size over the last 50 million years. This absence of transitional forms in the fossil record led us to look elsewhere to understand bat wing evolution. Since (of course) evolution is already a fact, no fossil evidence is necessary. What they looked at were genes for finger development in bats and their presumed cousins, mice. They found that a common gene for bone growth is activated differently in bats, causing the digits to grow much more rapidly, but only in the forelimbs. “Together, our results suggest that an up-regulation of the Bmp pathway is one of the major factors in the developmental elongation of bat forelimb digits, and it is potentially a key mechanism in their evolutionary elongation as well.” In this “suggestion,” no attempt was made to integrate this into a comprehensive picture of how the membranes developed, how flight muscles developed, where the avionics software came from, and all the other parts that would have had to have emerged simultaneously for long fingers to become tools rather than impediments. Since evolution is a fact, this is not a problem; each attribute becomes a piece of the grand evolutionary picture, something that “suggests” or “sheds light” on a detail of what is already known to be true. Michael Balter shamelessly gave his write-up on this paper a Kipling-esque just-so-story title in Science Now: “How Bats Got Off the Ground.” Calling bats great examples of “Darwinian success,” Balter quoted other scientists who called this a “an excellent paper” that “helps us to understand how evolutionary transformations are achieved by tinkering with the development of individual structures–in this case, the digits.”The purpose-driven bird: Darwinists have often claimed that humans have evolved to the point where they can now take charge of their own evolution. But can birds do this? That’s a new line promoted by Katherine Unger on Science Now, a news service of the AAAS. “Species need not sit around waiting for natural selection to shape them,” she said. “According to a new study, a creature’s personality can also be an important evolutionary driving force–one that may give the species some control over its own destiny.” The study, described in PNAS, showed how some bluebirds can alter their habitats and foraging behaviors based on how aggressive some members get (see also EurekAlert summary). The odd thing is that no evolution occurred before or after the study; the bluebirds were still bluebirds. The key finding was merely a suggestion: “By selecting the environment in which they live, animals can actively affect the natural selection they experience.” Evolution by natural selection is, of course, the fact that (by implication) produced the bluebirds in the first place.Apparently, suggestions are good enough for science these days. It all follows naturally by deduction from first principles: evolution is a fact. Cornelius Hunter, writing for ID the Future, has found this reaction to be common in his experience debating evolutionists. “Evolution is a fact” is their knee-jerk reply, with the inevitable comparison to gravity (an association Hunter calls absurd). “As the old saying goes, it is not what a man doesn’t know that worries me,” he quipped, “but what he knows for sure.” He continued,“The ‘evolution is a fact’ claim is awkward for evolutionists. It makes the man behind the curtain all the more obvious and is empirically unsupportable. How should evolutionists respond when a savvy buyer starts kicking the tires and asks “Why is this a fact again?”….The dual mandates that (i) science must adhere to methodological naturalism and (ii) evolution is a fact, serve to diminish the importance of the empirical data. Monumental evidential problems become mere curiosities when the theory is beyond question.Hunter calls this an “unfortunate trend in science. Let’s reverse it and seriously engage the issues at hand.”1Sumbre, Hochner et al., “Octopuses Use a Human-like Strategy to Control Precise Point-to-Point Arm Movements,” Current Biology, Vol 16, 767-772, 18 April 2006.2Scott L. Hooper, “Dispatch: Motor Control: The Importance of Stiffness,” Current Biology, Vol 16, R283-R285, 18 April 2006.3Sears et al., “Development of bat flight: Morphologic and molecular evolution of bat wing digits,” Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA, 10.1073/pnas.0509716103, published online before print April 17, 2006.We’re going to keep holding up this garbage to public view as we have for over five years now, to expose Darwinian research for what it is: institutionalized question begging, assuming what needs to be proved, making up tall tales in the absence of evidence, ascribing exquisite design to dumb processes of randomness, and murdering Baconian scientific rigor. Once the Darwin Party came to power, they dumbed down the high standards of research, substituted bravado for caution, and brought in the dark ages of speculative biology where facts and data don’t matter any more. The highest value now is keeping the story line begun by Pope Charlie going ad infinitum. The usurping Darwin Party elitists not only lounge around, engaging one another in “tantalizing speculations” (12/22/2003) in the institutions once devoted to induction and proof, but then have the gall to condemn anyone who calls them on the carpet for their shenanigans. Let this awareness promote a new day in science, where conclusions are rare, where “suggestions” are criticized, where evidence is king, and no principle based on human authority becomes a premise for deduction – i.e., like it used to be when men and women who loved nature and loved the truth (predominantly Christians and creationists – see online book) explored nature as seeking out the wisdom of God. Disallowing deduction and reinstating rigor might not cure the hard-core Darwinian materialists, but it would go a long way in clearing the fog away from the debate.(Visited 38 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0

They are asking (rather, demanding) to know if their recent product purchase relies on the version of OpenSSL in question. Ideally, you would be able to quickly pull up the open source bill of materials for each model number to verify whether OpenSSL is on the list. Note — the open source “bill of materials” is the list of all open source components used in the construction of a product, which is analogous to the ingredients list found on food packaging. However, in many organizations, this information is not easily accessible.This “Tuesday morning” scenario is playing out with growing frequency. Many people are familiar with the Equifax (Apache Struts) breach in 2017, but serious vulnerabilities have also been reported in 2019 with PostgreSQL, Kubernetes, Docker, Python, RubyGems, libcurl, libssh2, and WordPress, just to name a few. To be clear, open source software is not more problematic than proprietary software with respect to security vulnerabilities. Open source is typically developed and heavily vetted by a community that scrutinizes the code. Identified vulnerabilities are often quickly squashed by the same army of contributing developers – enabling fixes to be made available shortly after a problem is identified. Often, the issue may center more around companies not applying the fixes as soon as they are available. That was the case with Equifax.Another reason for the growing number of reported open source incidents is the increased dependency and use of open source components in the construction of modern day software solutions. Today, in order to be agile, it is the norm rather than the exception for software developers to leverage open source to the point where it represents the lion’s share of software from which a device is constructed. The Linux operating system, for instance, often serves as the nervous system for industrial devices. Hence, ignoring open source puts a company at a competitive disadvantage.Unfortunately, for many companies, there is little transparency in terms of a product’s open source bill of materials. A formal program and disciplined effort is required to collect this information during the product development lifecycle. Hunting down this information post- product release can be an order of magnitude more costly in both time and money. Steps to take post-release typically include: (i) tracking down all the source code used to construct the product; (ii) gathering open source tribal knowledge dispersed among your suppliers and internal software development team (who may have moved on to other initiatives); and (iii) using source code analysis tools.Open source component transparency is particularly important for software suppliers because of the multiplier effect they have in potentially propagating security vulnerabilities. In an attempt to get ahead of the problem, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in late 2018, added the requirement that premarket device submissions will need to include a software bill of materials.This raises the question: How can I obtain assurance that my suppliers and development team have the discipline required to create a software bill of materials of sufficient quality?The Linux Foundation’s OpenChain certification provides an answer. The OpenChain specification defines a standard for assessing a company’s open source compliance program completeness. One of the core requirements is the creation (and maintenance) of an open source bill of materials. This requirement, which is necessary to manage open source in general, is also critical to security vulnerability management. As they say in the business, “you can’t manage what you can’t measure.” You can’t respond to vulnerabilities and threats if you don’t know they are present. To best position your company to respond to such inquiries, you need to start with the bill of materials of your suppliers and internal development team.The OpenChain Specification is an open source project that has incorporated feedback from hundreds of contributors. Any organization can download it for free and visit the OpenChain conformance website to begin self-certification or engage a third-party certification authority. Although it may represent an additional requirement for suppliers, the cost to obtain OpenChain conformance pales in comparison to the time and cost savings obtained by using open source or the cost to remediate the situation post release. Most importantly, it mitigates the risk for the entire supply chain with regard to open source compliance and cyber security considerations.OpenChain certification is a definitive way to be assured that you have access to the necessary information, and could help change your Tuesday morning fire drills into just another item to check off your list.Mark Gisi , Director of Open Source Programs at Wind River Systems, is manager of the open source program office responsible for open source adoption; risk mitigation; community engagement and innovation acceleration. Mark is also a lead contributor to the Hyperledger Software Parts (SParts) lab project and chair of the Linux Foundation’s OpenChain Specification. Mark holds a MS degree in Computer Science and a BS degree in Mathematics. Mark has presented at over a dozen Linux Foundation events including the Open Source Leadership Summit, Open Source Summit North America and Europe, and Open Source Compliance Summit in Japan.

Asian News International Washington D.C.June 5, 2019UPDATED: June 5, 2019 15:03 IST Ashton Kutcher starrrer The Ranch to end on Netflix after Season 4.American sitcom The Ranch, starring Ashton Kutcher which airs on Netflix, is coming to an end.The 41-year-old actor and executive producer of the series shared the news on his Twitter handle that Jim Patterson and Don Reo-created dramedy about a dysfunctional family in Colorado will conclude in 2020.”@theranchnetflix is coming to an end, but not just yet. We’re excited to bring you the final 20 episodes — 10 streaming later this year (2019) on @netflix, and then 10 more in 2020. Stay tuned,” he tweeted.He also shared a photo featuring himself with co-stars Dax Shepard, Sam Elliott, and Elisha Cuthbert along with the tweet.@theranchnetflix is coming to an end, but not just yet. We’re excited to bring you the final 20 episodes 10 streaming later this year (2019) on @netflix, and then 10 more in 2020. Stay tuned! pic.twitter.com/dX9vzjHm4T ashton kutcher (@aplusk) June 4, 2019In March 2018, Netflix announced that actor Dax Shepard was joining the show a few months after Danny Masterson’s departure following multiple allegations of sexual assault levelled against the actor, reported People.”After discussing with the producers, we’ve decided to write Danny Masterson off of The Ranch. Yesterday was his last day of work, and we’ll make new episodes in 2018 without him,” the streaming service said in a statement at that time.Kutcher’s announcement of the final season comes days after his testimony in the alleged Hollywood ripper serial killer trial.Last week, the 41-year-old actor took the stand in the hearing of suspected serial killer Michael Gargiulo, who faces two counts of murder in connection with the deaths of two women including Kutcher’s friend Ashley Ellerin, who was killed in 2001.advertisementKutcher is one of the witnesses who have or are scheduled to testify in the murder trial of Gargiulo, who prosecutors have described as a “serial psychosexual thrill killer” who stalked and then stabbed the victims — all young women who lived near him.He testified for about 40 minutes, sporting a blue suit with a light blue shirt and a tie. His friend Ellerin’s father was present for Kutcher’s testimony.Kutcher had planned to go to dinner and drinks with Ellerin on the evening of February 21, 2001.The actor had met her in December 2000, when they were both dating other people. By February, they discovered that the two were newly single, so they scheduled a first date, Kutcher testified in court on Wednesday.However, the date never took place. While Ellerin was getting ready, prosecutors said Gargiulo snuck into the house and stabbed her 47 times.Kutcher stated that on the night Ellerin was killed, he arrived at her place between 10:30 and 10:45 p.m. He knocked on the door, and no one responded. Lights were on and so he tried the door but it was locked.”I assumed she had left for the night and I was late and she was upset. I just assumed she had gone out with her friend and bailed,” he said.The actor was never a suspect in the woman’s death.It takes a family to raise a ranch. Or something like that.
