McConalogue urges government to find solution to save Parentstop

first_imgA long-term solution to ensure the survival of the vital supports and services provided by Parentstop, must be found by the government as a matter of urgency, according to Fianna Fáil TD for Donegal, Charlie McConalogue.Speaking ahead of a planned meeting tomorrow, the Donegal TD said it is vital that funding can be found as a matter of urgency to ensure the continuation of the free and confidential support service for parents.He said: “Parentstop has offices in Letterkenny, Carndonagh, Downings and Donegal Town and has supported hundreds of families across the county. “There was a great deal of shock when they announced that they will have to close at the end of the year due to lack of funding and it is important that a solution can be found to prevent this happening”.The Fianna Fáil TD said there is a unanimous agreement across Donegal on the importance of the service and insisted the government must step up to the plate now and help save it.H said: “I know there is an important meeting planned tomorrow and that will give the government the perfect opportunity to show its real commitment to saving Parentstop and keeping it operational in Donegal.“At this stage, there is no time for more lip-service from the government. This meeting will provide them with a perfect opportunity to show they are behind the service. “They need to find the relatively small amount of funding necessary to keep Parentstop going, not just in the short-term, but as an ongoing resource for the county.” McConalogue urges government to find solution to save Parentstop was last modified: November 25th, 2019 by Chris McNultyShare 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:Charlie McConaloguefianna failParentstoplast_img read more

Beethoven Rolls Under Darwin

first_imgBeethoven may indeed be rolling in his grave, but not for the reasons some Darwin-loving reporters think.“Roll over Beethoven: you’re no longer needed,” began Andy Coghlan on New Scientist.  “From now on, the great unwashed masses can evolve their own compositions – no composers, songwriters or musical training required.”  His article, “How to Evolve Your Own Musical Melodies,” reports on a project by Bob MacCallum and Armand Leroi at Imperial College London to “evolve” music by “natural selection.”  PhysOrg joined in the overture, writing about “On the origin of music by natural selection.”MacCallum and Leroi invite public participation in their DarwinTunes website.  There, using an evolutionary algorithm, a selection of random 8-second sound loops can be “selected” by users for the most pleasing sound, producing more complex patterns over time.  The selected loops are allowed to reproduce until something the listener enjoys results.  On PhysOrg, Bob MacCallum explains on a recording how the process works (the BBC News adds video).  MacCallum goes so far as to say that the winning loops have sex and reproduce, while the unpleasing loops get killed off.  “It’s brutal, but that’s evolution for you,” he smirks.  The article continues,The scientists set out to test a theory that cultural changes in language, art and music evolve through Darwinian natural selection, in a similar way to how living things evolve. They simulated this cultural evolution by harnessing the power of a 7,000 strong internet audience in an experiment that was designed to answer several questions. Can music exist without being the product of a conscious, creative act? If so, what would that music sound like? Does everyone’s ideal tune sound the same?….Dr Bob MacCallum, another co-author and a mosquito genomics bioinformatician in the Department of Life Sciences at Imperial College London, said: “We knew our evolutionary music engine could make pretty good music in the hands of one user, but what we really wanted to know was if it could do so in a more Darwinian setting, with hundreds of listeners providing their feedback. Thanks to our students‘ and the general public’s valuable input, we can confidently say it does.”The BBC News insulted Mozart, too, but later admitted that the experimental music eventually ground down to a monotonous stasis that needed some kind of unspecified, unobserved breakthrough (punctuated equilibria?) to evolve further: “Of course it never slows down forever, it never just stays there,” Leroi said in attempt to rescue his hopes from observation.  “Eventually you will get another burst of evolution as something new comes along and breaks through a boundary, and we think that will happen here too.”The experiment clearly has nothing to do with Darwinian natural selection, but everything to do with artificial selection (i.e., intelligent design).  There’s nothing natural about it.  It’s like artificial breeding of chickens, dogs or cows to get what a human mind desires.  It doesn’t matter if the artificial selector involves one or a hundred people: it’s still being selected by minds having a purpose, not by an unguided, impersonal, random process like Darwin envisioned.  Even unwashed masses can be intelligent designers.  MacCallum admits as much, stating that “market forces, consumer choice, is itself a creative force.”  He also admitted that many of the selectors were undergraduate students (that fact may or may not impress Darwin skeptics).Calling this sound “music,” furthermore, is dubious.  It consists of a conglomeration of repetitive loops, lacking the structure and serial organization of a Beethoven symphony or Mozart concerto.  It might be likened to group selection of the most pleasing wind chimes arranged in a hodgepodge that is the “least ugly” among a random set.  There is no sonata form, no development, no recapitulation — no form whatsoever.Another project by a different composer produced intelligently-designed music a different way.  This time it was Michael Blake, who composed a fugue-like composition based on the Golden Ratio.  This ratio (1.6180339887…) known to be ubiquitous in nature and aesthetically pleasing to the eye, is also pleasing to the ear.  In another article on New Scientist by another reporter, Jacob Aron, an embedded music video shows Blake performing his work.  See a write-up on Evolution News & Views about the design implications of Blake’s project.  For a stunning animation about how the Golden Ratio and Fibonacci Series are related, and how they turn up in phenomena as diverse as sunflowers and nautilus shells, click here (intelligently-designed music track included).How can Darwin keep taking credit for intelligent design?  Darwin’s theory is the antithesis of ID.  William Dembski showed clearly in No Free Lunch that no evolutionary algorithm is superior to blind search once external information is identified and excluded from the algorithm.  The DarwinTunes scientists and reporters prove they understand neither music nor Darwinism.  They don’t understand the difference between natural and artificial selection.  They don’t understand that “reproduction” of selected sound loops bears little if any relationship to biological reproduction.  And the results occur within a day under mental selection– not over millions of years.Yet the mythology marches on.  It’s not only the Emperor in this parade who has no clothes; it’s the drum major and all the band players, too.  The media have joined in, tapping their bare feet to the drumbeat of the “natural selection” myth.  It’s enough to make the normal people wonder about their normality.Don’t worry.  If you find this bizarre, it’s because it is.  You’re normal.  It’s time for some letter-writing to expose the perpetrators (as if they have not already exposed themselves).  Let the rumbling of a thousand master composers like Beethoven rolling in their graves stir you to action until they rest in peace, or (shall we say), de-compose in peace.

Shiv Sena mouthpiece Saamna questions need for EU team’s visit to Kashmir

first_imgAmid the ongoing tussle between the Shiv Sena and the BJP in Maharashtra, Sena mouthpiece Saamna has questioned the need for the European Union representatives’ visit to Kashmir.In an editorial published on Wednesday, which started off by saying that the situation was under control in Kashmir now and transport, communication services had been restored, it mentioned that Kashmir was India’s internal matter. “When everything is going on normally in Kashmir, why has the EU team come to Kashmir now? Kashmir is not an international issue. Pandit Nehru is still criticised for taking this issue to UN. You don’t like UN interference on Kashmir, then how do you tolerate the EU team’s faujdari (policing) in Kashmir? Isn’t European community coming for observation to Kashmir an attack on India’s freedom and sovereignty? Even today, political leaders don’t have entry in Kashmir. Then, what exactly is the EU team going to do? The Home Minister is capable of answering these questions.”The editorial lauds Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah for abrogation of provisions of Article 370 and says the EU team should do sightseeing in Kashmir and go back and not “ruin the atmosphere.” “The war in Kashmir is against terrorism and Modi government has won it,” it says.last_img read more

Let the Man Spin

first_imgA lot have been said about Indian bowlers but I think they have done pretty well. We must understand that the bowlers have been given a raw deal. The Bangalore pitch was flat and that’s the reason why almost every team conceded over 300 runs. The odds are against the bowlers. Credit must be given to Indian bowlers for bringing the team back into the game against England. India were staring at a certain defeat when Andrew Strauss and Ian Bell were taking off. Zaheer Khan bowled exceptionally well to not only break the partnership but also earn India a tie if not victory.Another bone of contention has been Piyush Chawla’s inclusion in the playing XI. I think it’s a good decision. Leg spinners have always been match-winners and captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s persistence with Chawla will soon get India the desired results. It’s heartening to see the captain’s confidence in his abilities. Considering the performance of others, the young bowler has not done that badly. Almost all the bowlers have conceded more that 60 runs in their stipulated 10 overs.As the tournament progresses, the bowler’s role will become more crucial. The wickets will be turning more and spinners will be more effective. Harbhajan Singh will have to play a big role in India’s campaign for the World Cup. I’m sure he will soon be among wickets. He, along with Zaheer Khan, will be our main wicker-taking bowler. Munaf Patel has to play the role of controlling the run-rate. Ashish Nehra also has the ability to take wickets at crucial moments.advertisementAmong other teams, Australia have a very strong bowling attack. Brett Lee’s performance will be significant. He is a game-changer. Shaun Tait is also bowling well. Another team which I expect to do well in the bowling department is Pakistan. They have a very promising bowler in Saeed Ajmal. Captain Shahid Afridi is bowling brilliantly. He has been successful because he is accurate and very fast through the air. He has the ability to turn the odd ball. And the game too.- Javagal Srinath is a former Indian fast bowler and a World Cup expert with NewsX. He spoke to Kaushik Deka.last_img read more

Enjoy the luxury trail in New Zealand

first_imgWonderfully weird wilderness, trekking, kayaking, being outdoors, adventure sports, wine country, juicy lamb, The Lord of the Rings landscape and of course, the ubiquitous sheep. When I was told that I’m going to New Zealand that’s what I imagined. And that’s exactly what I got with a couple of whale sightings and a day of swimming with 300 dusky dolphins thrown in. All this was exhilarating, exciting and expected. What surprised me, and delighted me, were the luxurious lodges and the fashionably styled boutique hotels. Who would’ve thought such pretty things would exist in exceedingly (albeit charmingly) casual NZ? Not I.But I’ll happily admit how utterly erroneous I was. I got into a water taxi in Picton, an adorable harbour town in the north-east corner of the South Island, fully prepared to be taken once again to the untamed outback to do the whole living in nature with bare essentials thing as is customary in NZ. Man, was I in for a treat! Bay of Many Coves, accessible only by boat or helicopter, is in the lap of nature but is far from basic. The couple who run this 5-star resort greeted me with saying, “Welcome to a place where there’s lots to do and nothing to do.” They were not wrong. Set deep in the woods of Marlborough Sounds (an adventurer’s paradise) the activities you can indulge in boggle the mind. Horse riding, kayaking, swimming with dolphins, scalloping, clay bird shooting, bird watching, excursions through the world-renowned coastal Queen Charlotte track of towering native forest and regenerating bush, trekking over ridges and into beautiful coves, motor yacht cruising, eco cruising… the list goes on and on.The cherry on top for someone like me who hates group and/or package anything, is that you can do it all in your own time, away from the crowds and with minimal hassle. The hotel will arrange it all for you and send you off happily with an expert guide and a gourmet picnic.After spending a vigorous day of discovering magical waterfalls and Alice in Wonderland like plants and insects, I felt virtuous enough to try the doing the nothing part. I lazed in the hot tub, soaked in the sun by the heated pool and pretended to read my book in between spa treatments. Then I guiltlessly polished a chilled bottle of organic Seresin sauvignon blanc from the local vineyard and ate a specially prepared steamed salmon with a lemon and shellfish foam on a cluster of white asparagus–it exploded like spring in my mouth.The next little gem of sumptuousness was to be found up on a tree. The Yber modern but romantically rustic rooms in Hapuku Lodge, 20 miles from the buzzing little seaside town of Kaikoura, are suspended 30 ft from the ground in the canopy of a native Manuka grove. The room is encased in 360 degrees of glass wall and the vista is unique. From one side you see the snow-capped mountains and green valley dotted with sheep and on the other you see the blue expanse of endless ocean. I had the most memorable exhibitionist shower gazing out into the vast open for all the world to see but of course being NZ there is not a soul to play voyeur. All this comes at a price and will set you back about NZ$ 700 per night but who said good things come cheap? If you do end up there, make sure you notice the bespoke wooden tables in all different shapes and sizes that have been funkily created from a single piece of log.En route my search for the next lush stop (this time perhaps a castle balanced on top of a rock), I made a tiny detour to the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre in Blenheim. I have no great interest in flying machines but this particular one is chaired by filmmaker Peter Jackson. He is a World War I enthusiast who has the best personal collection of aircraft memorabilia from that period. Being an award-winning director of the most technically unflawed trilogy, he has cleverly got his special effects team to design and construct the displays which are so dramatic that they easily shock and awe. The museum is a real life hangar as well as a flying club, so many of the ancient aircrafts are not only the real deal but are in good flying condition. My favourite was seeing how ridiculously primitive and utterly dangerous some of the early flying contraptions were. To keep warm at the altitude the open craft was high enough to fly, they had to wear layers of sheep skin and fur, a lot of flyers froze to death before crashing! We’ve come a long way to have our flat beds in our individual egg like suites. The mind shudders at thought of doing Delhi-Auckland back then!On my way back home I needed one last luxury fix, so I checked straight into the wonderfully modish Hotel De Brett in the centre of Auckland. The building is supposedly iconic and has been ‘reinterpreted’ into a 25-room boutique hotel. The rooms are chic; white with an art deco-meets-new age minimalism that is quite arresting. Each room has been individually designed but they all have the thick, handwoven striped carpet custom made by Michelle Deery. The bathroom floor is heated and resembles Prem Chopra’s opulent den in the ’70s!There was a beautiful big mama singing the blues in the famous Housebar, as I sat in front of the roaring open fire, downing one too many of the aptly named cocktail Fallen Angel. This stylish haunt within the hotel has three adjoining rooms all providing an inimitable ambience so you can choose according your mood. As the crooner climaxed to crescendo, the cheer of the Kiwi merrymakers too travelled through the leafy courtyard, engulfing the elegant dining room and rising right up to the glass roof atrium. When I awoke I was nursing my head in the egg cabin 30,000 ft above solid ground. I waved goodbye to the enchanted land of richness and said a silent prayer of gratitude to all those daredevils who had bravely defied gravity in their crude machines so that today I could hop across the globe in, and to, luxury. Fact fileGetting there: Delhi/Mumbai-Singapore-Auckland on Singapore Airlines.

Alex Cabagnot lifts San Miguel Beer

first_imgAfter falling behind by six at the start of the first quarter, the Beermen came out strong in the next two, leading by as many as 24 points before taking an 81-59 lead going into the fourth.But Phoenix chewed 15 points off that lead and were within 89-82, before the Beermen’s thirtysomethings decided to step up.Arwind Santos, 37, nailed a triple while 31-year-old Marcio Lassiter had a steal and two free throws. Cabagnot, 36, split the Phoenix defense and the Beermen were back in full control, 96-83, heading into the homestretch.“We’re so thankful for this win. We were really worried about the series because we do not have ample time to prepare,” said San Miguel coach  coach Leo Austria.The win put to waste an 18-point, 21-rebound effort by Calvin Abueva, who also doomed his squad in other facets of his game. Abueva shot just 6 of 22 from the field (27 percent) and missed 10 of his 15 free throw attempts. He also had five turnovers that negated his five assists.ADVERTISEMENT On both occasions, Alex Cabagnot stepped up for San Miguel Beer.The veteran guard finished with 26 points, seven assists, five rebounds and three steals and then capped a strong finish by the Beermen with a slicing drive in a 100-88 victory over the Fuel Masters at Mall of Asia Arena.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logisticsAnd Cabagnot was also the one pumping up the Beermen after Fajardo’s status became uncertain after his fall.“We just want to be all healthy going into Monday (Game 2),” Cabagnot said.

Howe said, “I do not feel confidence has been low but naturally when you do not win consistently, which is what we all want to do, somewhere along the line you take a slight hit.“It is important the players try not to let that affect them.
