Although we can say the weather was MUCH better than last weekend, it was still a bit chilly and windy. Adam stepped up to the line first at 1pm with 24 other teams and individuals joining him. (214 in all). Adam was among some incredible competition and finished in the top half of the race, right at the 100th spot with a time of 16:54. 45 minutes later, it was Lily’s turn. 205 ladies were ready to start the race when the connon went off. Lily fought all the way through the finish line and placed 63rd with a time of 19:24. Very proud of these two and thank all the teammates and fans that were able to make the trip to Terre Haute to cheer them on.

Preparing the World for Aliens

first_imgSome people are so convinced there are alien intelligences in the universe, we should be getting ready to meet them.    The Telegraph, a UK newspaper, reported that NASA has partly financed a creative writing class on “interstellar message composition” at the University of Wyoming.  Professor Jeffrey Lockwood wants to help the 11 students think about what we might say to an alien intelligence.  One student “created a poem about menstruation with syllables arranged in a mathematically harmonious order, known as the Fibonacci sequence.”  The course is being advised by Douglas Vakoch, director of interstellar message composition at the SETI Institute (see 04/17/2008).  Who better than writers, he said, to express the human condition to our stellar neighbors.  “It could be tomorrow that we’ll need to be ready to decide if we reply,” he said.  Don’t expect a lively dialogue, though; each one-way message could take thousands of years.    Over the Rockies at Denver, Jeff Peckman is asking the city council to create an “Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission,” reported the Denver Post.  He believes the federal government is already aware of extraterrestrials and is spending a great deal of taxpayer money to conceal the fact.  Peckman is gathering signatures for a ballot initiative to create an 18-member commission, at the cost of $75,000 a year, to decide on policies for dealing with space beings.  The Rocky Mountain News said that Peckman believes he saw an alien winking through a window on a video of a UFO.Which of these stories is absurd, pseudoscientific and an egregious abuse of taxpayer money?  Pick any two.(Visited 12 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Crackdown in Tunisia: This Week in Online Tyranny

first_imgcurt hopkins 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tunisian Protests Result in Massive Online Crackdown. On December 17th, a young unemployed university graduate, Mohamed Bouazizi, burned himself to death in Sidi Bouzid to protest the economic situation for young people. His death inspired large protests and resulted in the government killing of three protesters so far. With a non-existent media, Tunisians took to the internet to share information on the protests. This resulted in a savage censoring backlash by the Tunisian government. Anonymous, the 4chan-allied, Wikipedia-defending hacker group, subsequently targeted the government’s official site and that of the prime minister, shutting both down. Tunisians are being supported by bloggers around the world, especially in the Arab world. It has been absent, however, in the western media. This should, alas, be no great shock. On the plus side, as DemocracyWorks notes, are the development of the anti-censorship protest song in Tunisia, and protest hip-hop. Saudi Arabia to increase official online repression. Two months after banning Facebook for “religious reasons,” the kingdom, already one of the most repressive places on the planet, is introducing new rules. They include mandatory licensing for all blogs and websites, as well as government-approved editors. Anyone wishing to start an online publication will need “documents testifying to their good behaviour.” It’s almost funny. Almost. Taiwan restricts free expression. One of the trends we predicted, that of democracies aping restrictive countries like China, is in full flower. The latest to join the Shutup Club is Taiwan. In a unique combination of direct government pressure on the media and government-funded advertising, Taiwan’s media is becoming more docile. Freedom House has downgraded the country’s free speech rating. Whether this will inspire a flowering of alternative online expression or muzzle it as well remains to be seen. The GoldenState is Tin. California’s “mellow vibe” has never seemed quite real to anyone who’s spent any time there, and the latest legal moves in the state should dispel the notion of a live-and-let-live state for good. If you are arrested now in California, the police may, pursuant to a California Supreme Court verdict, seize and root through your cell phone without a warrant. Not satisfied with that, the CA legislature has also passed Senate Bill 1411, a law making “epersonation,” masquerading as someone else online, a crime that can send you to jail for a year. Bolivia makes racism-based censorship more palatable. Bolvia’s “anti-racism” law, a cheap screen for censorship against troublesome journalists, has been criticized widely. Disappointingly, Reporters Without Borders has praised the change in language of the new law. Yes, it’s more specific. But the real issue is that speech is being punished, it’s aimed at media organs and it still provides a handy tool for prosecution of uncooperative newspapers, websites and broadcast stations. Racism should be argued down with words and with actions – if a publication is a racist rag, withdraw your patronage, your advertising, your cooperation. But send a government (you know – the guys with the guns?) against it and you’d best start practice throwing your hands up over your head and remaining perfectly still – you’ll find that yourself racist the minute you disagree with the reigning regime. China arrests blogger for being a dirty bird. Given that China arrested a bride on her wedding day for a seven-word retweet, no one should be surprised that the country’s government is as humorless as it is repressive. But as if to make 100% certain that no one is, China has arrested Lin Chenglong, a Guandong resident who wrote a blog called “Eating, Drinking, Whoring and Gambling.” Please note: Lin was not arrested for soliciting a prostitute. Neither prostitutes, pimps nor madams were arrested. You can make a very good case that prostitution is deleterious for all participants (if you want). But that’s not why Lin was arrested. He was arrested for “spreading obscene material on the internet.” He was arrested, in other words, because China’s leadership are a bunch of repressive grannies.

Schrock in awe

The midfielder said Gier would never fail to remind them who they were playing for, especially when they were in the Middle East where a huge number of Filipino workers were based.“On my first game, Rob Gier was telling us to play for all those Filipino workers suffering and sacrificing for their families back home,” Schrock said.“I still get shaky knees remembering what he said. We are privileged to be a part of this and blessed with an average life that’s why we always give our best to our brothers and sisters in the 90 minutes that we are on the pitch.”ADVERTISEMENT PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games PLAY LIST 02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next LATEST STORIES Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Surprised and disappointed Trudeau says Jody WilsonRaybould should have gone to him

first_imgPrime Minister Justin Trudeau said Tuesday that Jody Wilson-Raybould should have spoken to him about any concerns she may have had. APTN.Justin BrakeAPTN NewsJustin Trudeau says he was “surprised and disappointed” by former minister of Justice and Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould’s resignation Tuesday.The prime minister said Wilson-Raybould, who notified Trudeau of her resignation on Monday evening, should have gone to him with any concerns she might have had.“If anyone, particularly the Attorney General, felt that we were not doing our job fully, responsibly, and according to all the rules as a government, it was her responsibility to come forward to me this past fall and highlight that directly to me,” Trudeau said.“She did not. Nobody did. And that’s why I continue to be puzzled and obviously disappointed by her decision to step down from cabinet.”The statements, made Tuesday evening in Winnipeg, are the latest in an ongoing saga involving allegations the prime minister pressured Wilson-Raybould to help Montreal engineering and construction firm SNC-Lavalin avoid criminal prosecution.Trudeau has denied the allegations, and Wilson-Raybould has cited solicitor-client privilege when pressed on the matter.She served as Canada’s Attorney General from 2015 until last month, when she was moved to the Veterans Affairs portfolio in a political move that surprised many.The prime minister reaffirmed his, and his government’s innocence in the matter.“Let me be direct, the government of Canada did its job, and to the clear public standards expected of it,” Trudeau told reporters in Winnipeg Tuesday.“If anyone felt differently they had an obligation to raise that with me. No one, including Jody, did that.”During his responses to media Tuesday Trudeau repeatedly referred to the former minister and First Nation leader by her first name.In December Trudeau came under fire from First Nation chiefs in B.C. after he addressed Kukpi7 Judy Wilson of the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs (UBCIC) by her first name and in what the UBCIC maintained was a condescending tone.The UBCIC called Trudeau’s behaviour toward Wilson sexist and demanded an apology, saying the prime minister “runs the risk of sending a message to Canadians that it’s ok to belittle, berate and lecture female Indigenous leaders.“It sends a message that it’s ok to continue these attacks towards our Indigenous women whether it is in the boardroom, meetings or dealing with issues on the land, and it runs the grave risk of discouraging Indigenous women to stand up to defend themselves.”No apology was ever made.The organization made a similar statement Tuesday in a letter to Trudeau, prior to Wilson-Raybould’s resignation, saying that comments reported by media from unnamed sources within the Liberal party about Wilson-Raybould are sexist and racist.“They perpetuate colonial-era, sexist stereotypes that Indigenous women cannot be powerful, forthright, and steadfast in positions of power, but rather confrontational, meddling and egotistic,” the letter to Trudeau reads. “These comments from your staff must be recognized for what they are – blatant sexism.”Trudeau said reconciliation is still a priority for the Liberals.“Our government’s commitment to reconciliation is larger than any one person, and we will continue to work closely with Indigenous partners as we walk this path together.“Make no mistake, we will remain squarely focused on middle class Canadians, creating jobs, growing the economy, and delivering more opportunities for hard-working families from coast to coast to coast,” he said.The prime minister also downplayed the significance of having an Indigenous woman in his cabinet.“We have taken directions from Canadians, particularly Indigenous Canadians, from the very beginning on the matter of reconciliation,” he said.With files from Martha [email protected]@justinbrakenewslast_img read more
