first_imgAnd that energy will benefit the organization and its slate of candidates, Brown is convinced.Brown, 46, is a Long Branch native who was chosen late last month to succeed Vin Gopal as the party’s chairman, an unpaid position. Gopal decided to step down last month from his chairman role, which he held since 2012. Gopal plans to run as the Democrat for the state Senate seat for the 11th Legislative District, currently held by Republican Jennifer Beck.Brown initially faced competition from Spring Lake Heights resident Lorna Phillipson for the chairmanship. Phillipson, who ran unsuccessfully last year for the U.S. House of Representatives against longtime incumbent Chris Smith, dropped out of the chairmanship race after being injured in a car collision.Brown will serve out the remainder of Gopal’s term, which runs to June 2018.Brown works as the borough administrator for Roselle, in Union County, and had been active in the Monmouth County party, serving as the organization’s treasurer. He had sought elected office, having run unsuccessfully for Long Branch City Council a few years ago. “I’ve been a Democrat all my life,” he said, explaining that means, “I believe in Democratic values and the Democratic (party) platform,” on issues. The issues, he said, involve supporting equal pay for men and women, available and affordable health care, and protections against discrimination, among others.As chairman, Brown sees his job as being the “servant/ leader” of the party and following its wishes. “And it’s not easy,” he conceded, attending to the disparate interests in a large, diverse county like Monmouth. “Sometimes it’s like being (King) Solomon,” trying to keep that balance, he kidded.But one of the chairman’s major responsibilities is getting candidates elected. He said there is “a lot of enthusiasm and energy of new Democrats coming out I believe will translate into additional votes.”The Democrats could use it. Monmouth County’s current voter registration gives Democrats a slight edge with 105,000, compared to 101,000 Republicans. But what makes or breaks countywide elections here in Monmouth are the independent/unaffiliated voters, which total about 208,000. And while there are the occasional bright spots for Democrats – sometimes winning a county freeholder seat (even taking control of the five-member freeholder board for a year in 2009, the first time in more than a generation), and shoring up majorities in some municipalities, the county has been consistently Republican red. Last year’s election was no different, with the GOP incumbents handily winning county races, and Donald Trump carrying the county easily. “We’re trying to craft our message,” Brown said, with hopes of appealing to a Trump backlash. “We’re going to be the anti-Trump,” he said, charging the president “rules by fear and chaos.”To do that, “We want to put in good candidates who will govern by good government.”And that means selecting those candidates. That too, he acknowledged, is a tough process to find qualified candidates who can appeal to a broad cross-section of voters and be up to the increasingly rough-and-tumble world of a political campaign, which has become the case even for state or county campaigns.The county organization will hold a convention early this spring to formally select its slate of candidates for the Senate and Assembly races for the 11th, 12th, 13th and 30th Districts; presumably the 11th Assembly members Joann Downey and Eric Houghtaling will be running for re-election. Those Democrats defied expectations and won in 2015, ousting two veteran Republicans.The county organization has already thrown its support behind Monmouth County’s own Philip D. Murphy for the governor’s race. Murphy, Middletown, has been winning over Democratic organizations and garnering union support in his bid to win the competitive nomination race and go on to the general election in November. “And with Phil Murphy on the top of the ticket,” Brown offered assuredly, “I believe the Monmouth County Democrats will thrive.”center_img By John BurtonHAZLET – The old Chinese expression “May you live in interesting times” is certainly holding true for the national political scene and it is benefiting the county Democrats, according to the organization’s newly elected chairman, David Brown.The election of Republican President Donald J. Trump and ongoing controversies surrounding his administration and policies has, in some ways, sparked interest in the local Democratic party, with newly registered party members and some longtime ones having become galvanized and energized, believes Brown.Complacency had been “just everywhere,” in the Democratic body politic, especially since Barack Obama was elected president and then re-elected by a majority of voters, Brown said during an interview with The Two River Times conducted on Feb. 6 at the county organization’s headquarters in the Airport Plaza shopping center on Route 36.“But now people are concerned,” over the new administration’s actions, he continued. “That complacency now is being evaporated by enthusiasm.”Matthew Anderson, the county organization’s executive director, followed up by noting organization meetings – usually marked by pretty low attendance, with just the stalwart of committee members on hand – have seen surprisingly large turnouts. So much so, that Anderson said they’re looking for larger venues to accommodate the audience.“Normally we struggle,” to round up volunteers and organization members, Brown acknowledged. “But in this environment Democrats are coming out in droves.”last_img read more

first_imgIn a series that promises to go the distance, Round one goes to Beaver Valley.Nitehawks captain Archie McKinnon scored with 20 seconds remaining in the game to power visiting Beaver Valley to a 4-3 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League playoff victory over the Nelson Leafs Friday night at the NDCC Arena.Beaver Valley takes a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven Murdoch Division final with Game two set for Saturday right back in Nelson.“We’re really happy with the result (tonight),” said McKinnon from outside the jubilant Hawks dressing room.“It’s a big win . . . it’s in Nelson and it gives us home ice advantage in the series.” McKinnon took advantage of a pressing Hawks fore check to skate in from the Leafs blueline, jump on a loose puck and sneak a puck into the Nelson net through a maze of players.“I saw our forwards working it down low . . . I saw (Nelson’s) forwards go down low which created an opening,” McKinnon explained. “The puck popped out from behind the net and I just tried to get it by their guy and it went in.”The teams were tied 1-1 after the opening frame —  Dan Holland for the Hawks and Austin Seaman replying for Nelson — and 2-2 following 40 minutes. Sheldon Hubbard scored for the visitors while Nick Trefrey replied for the Leafs.Nelson took a 3-2 lead in the third period on a deflection by Leaf forward Troy Petrick off a Darnel St. Pierre point shot.But the Hawks tied the game just over a minute later on their own seeing-eyed shot by Taylor Stafford.The teams traded scoring chances in the final minutes of the game with the Hawks making the most of their opportunity.“We looking forward to Game two,” McKinnon said. “I don’t think we played our greatest but we still came out with the win.”Beaver Valley out shot the Leafs 29-28 making a winner out of netminder Brett Clark.SERIES NOTES: Archie McKinnon, Taylor Stafford and Dallas Calvin each finished with two points for Beaver Valley. . . .The game saw the return of Leaf sniper Jamie Vlanich, who played the wing on a line with Travis Wellman and Alec Wilkinson. Vlanich, how had not played a single playoff game this season due to an upper body injury, earned an assist on the power play marker by Austin Seaman. . . . . Each team scored once with the man advantage . . . . Dallas Calvin got the call to play the second B.C. Hockey League playoff game for Vernon Lakers Wednesday against West Kelowna. . . . Game attendance was more than 700 while the 50-50 draw topped the $600 mark for the winner. . . . Creston and Osoyoos each opened their respective division finals with victories Friday, over Kimberley (4-1) and North Okanagan (3-2), respectively.

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (Nov. 3, 2016)–Beaten 22 ½ lengths in the Grade I Pacific Classic on Aug. 20 and winless in 18 starts since winning the Grade II Charles Town Classic in April, 2014, Imperative rallied boldly from last to take Thursday’s $80,000 Big Bear Stakes by 1 ¼ lengths under Kent Desormeaux, who hadn’t been aboard in a year and a half. Trained by Richard Baltas, Imperative, a 6-year-old Bernardini gelding, got one mile in 1:35.98.“I think he can beat anyone in the world when he wants to,” said Desormeaux, who was also aboard for Imperative’s signature win in the Charles Town Classic. “He’s the kind of horse, he’s either gonna show up or he’s not. So I just (left him alone) until we got to the quarter pole and when I asked him, he just took off.”Owned by J K Racing Stable, Imperative was the 7-5 favorite in a field of eight 3-year-olds and up and paid $4.80, $3.00 and $2.40. In garnering his fourth win from 34 career starts, Imperative picked up a winner’s check of $50,400, which increased his earnings to $2,002,365.“He’s just a horse that’s hard to ride,” said Baltas, who has been the trainer of record for his last nine starts. “There’s a particular way to ride him and Kent knows how to ride him.”Pacesetter Conquest Cobra repelled a stiff challenge from eventual third place finisher Magic Mark, but was no match for the winner and had to settle for second, 3 ¼ lengths clear of “Magic.” Ridden by Rafael Bejarano, Conquest Cobra was off at 7-2 and paid $4.20 and $2.80.Magic Mark, with Drayden Van Dyke aloft, was off at 3-1 and paid $2.80 to show.Fractions on the race were 23.15, 46.75, 1:11.28 and 1:23.54.Friday is day one of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships. Accordingly, Santa Anita admission gates will open at 9 a.m. and first live race post time is at 11:25 a.m.Friday’s main event is the Grade I, $2 million Breeders’ Cup Distaff, which has been carded as the ninth race on a 10-race program.

first_img(Visited 792 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Astronomy used to be the flagship model of observational science. Now, the method is: embrace the dogma, then hunt for obscure details that might support it.As a student of Fred Hoyle in the 1950s, Jayant V. Narlikar embraced Hoyle’s rogue spirit, but also his respect for observational science. This retired astronomer renowned in India recently wrote a memoir and commentary about modern cosmology in The European Physical Journal H, titled, “The evolution of modern cosmology as seen through a personal walk across six decades.” The Abstract to the paper describes the tone of Narlikar’s message to the scientific world:The author argues that despite the popularity of the standard hot big bang cosmology (SBBC) it rests on rather shaky foundations. On the theoretical side there is no well established physical framework to support the SBBC; nor is there independent observational support for its assumptions like the nonbaryonic dark matter, inflation and dark energy. While technological progress has made it possible to explore the universe in greater detail with open mind, today’s cosmologists seem caught in a range of speculations in support of the big bang dogma. Thus, in modern times cosmology appears to have lost the Camelot spirit encouraging adventurous studies of the unknown. A spirit of openness is advocated to restore cosmology to its rightful position as the flagship of astronomy.A summary of Narlikar’s commentary in Springer Press includes the following quote by Lev Landau: “Cosmologists are often wrong but never in doubt.” To this day, we find big bang cosmologists relying on mythical occult phenomena like inflation, dark matter and dark energy, like Narlikar says. They must exist, because the big bang system doesn’t work without them. Their papers (and the popular press write-ups) manipulate mere suggestions into facts. Is it really possible that so many highly gifted intellects could be dogmatically wrong? Let’s find out by looking at recent news:The search for dark matter—axions have ever-fewer places to hide (Phys.org). The big bang theory, to work, requires almost six times as much dark matter as observed matter. For years we have watched dark-matter hunters look foolish, building bigger and better detectors, spending huge amounts of money, finding nothing (search). One of the proposed dark matter particles—the axion—has “fewer places to hide,” this article says. It sounds like snipe hunters converging on the bush where the snipe must be hiding. Does this mythical particle even exist? What are the hunters going to say when all the hiding places have been checked, and the coveted particles, whatever they are, continue to be missing?The Universe Is Expanding Faster Than We Thought, Hubble Data Suggests (Space.com). Modern cosmologists are willing to toss out the venerable laws of physics to save their theory. This article, concerning dark energy, shows observations running counter to dogma. Measurements do not match up with expectations of the behavior of the universe, assuming the big bang. New observations by Hubble have left astronomers scratching their heads.Recent Hubble Space Telescope findings suggest that the universe is expanding much faster than expected — and astronomers say the rules of physics may need to be rewritten in order to understand why.Scientists use the Hubble Space Telescope to make precise measurements of the universe’s expansion rate. However, observations for a new study don’t match up with previous predictions based on the universe’s trajectory following the Big Bang, according to a statement from the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI).“The community is really grappling with understanding the meaning of this discrepancy,” Adam Riess, Nobel laureate and lead researcher on the study describing the new findings, said in the statement.The cosmologists, so “wrong” as Landau said, are never in doubt. The big bang must prevail, even with observations that run counter to predictions. “Both results have been tested multiple ways, so barring a series of unrelated mistakes, it is increasingly likely that this is not a bug but a feature of the universe,” one said. Their activity seems focused on preserving the big bang and dark matter at all costs: “it’s possible that elusive dark matter, which accounts for 80 percent of the matter in the universe [there’s the dogma], interacts more strongly with visible matter or radiation than once thought, the researchers said” with an implied Tontology. Or, maybe traditional dark energy varies in strength over time. Or, quite possibly, dark energy is a myth.Improved Hubble yardstick gives fresh evidence for new physics in the universe (Science Daily). This article, also about those pesky Hubble observations, claims “something unexpected” is at work in the universe. Observations are “forcing astronomers to consider” facts that run afoul of consensus dogma. And yet, further reading shows these astronomers standing courageous against the onslaught, affirming the big bang against the threat of falsifying evidence.Cosmic Dawn: Astronomers Find Fingerprints of Universe’s First Stars (Space.com). The big news of the week concerns the “discovery” of the “first stars” after the big bang. Mike Wall takes the lead in the press parade, leading reporters who couldn’t think independently of the consensus shamans if their jobs depended on it. Lining up, and marching in lockstep, they beat the big bang drum and sound the brass, informing the public that the big bang has been confirmed again, with a bonus: it might even shed light on that mysterious dark matter:We have found traces of the universe’s first ever stars (New Scientist).Astronomers May Have Found the First Stars Born After the Big Bang (National Geographic).The Universe’s First Stars May Reveal a Big Clue About Dark Matter (Live Science).Within 180 million years of the Big Bang, stars were born (Science Daily)Search for first stars uncovers ‘dark matter’ (Science Daily)NSF artwork. Caution: no real stars detected.But wait till you hear what the claims are based on. Two papers in Nature, one by Bowman et al and another by Rennan Barkana, show that things are not so tidy. Lincoln Greenhill describes the upshot of the papers as “A Surprising Chill Before the Cosmic Dawn” in his summary in Nature. In the first place, the astronomers did not actually “see” any “first stars” out there, like the public is led to believe from the artwork of a bright blue star gracing the popular articles. Instead, they inferred the possible existence of stars that would have to be made of hydrogen and helium right after the big bang, before nucleosynthesis (another cosmology myth) could have built up the periodic table of heavier elements.In the second place, the measurements were extremely difficult to make, with noise swamping the expected signal by a factor of a thousand. In such needle-in-a-haystack conditions, theory and assumptions can overwhelm the actual search. Astronomers can tweak their models to find the mythical needle, which might to others with different assumptions look like another piece of straw.In the third place, even with this ‘discovery’ they had to change their big bang models again. That’s the ‘surprising chill’ Greenhill talks about: a temperature in the “dark ages” period before the first stars that has to be twice as low as previously thought. Barkana’s paper, responding to the ‘discovery,’ discusses what kind of conditions are required to support it. His paper uses forms of the word assume 32 times before he comes up with a ‘best case scenario’ that might support certain ideas about the mythical dark matter. Yet that flimsy connection was enough for the press to claim that astronomers had revealed a ‘big clue’ about it.Greenhill has his doubts about these claims:However, the most stringent test will be to compare the current results with those to come from independent experiments also aimed at detecting the cosmic-dawn signal. I hope that the unexpected amplitude and line shape of the reported absorption signal is indeed a hard-won breakthrough that reveals evidence of unexpected physics. But it is possible that systematic errors have escaped detection by the tests that were run.The reporters in the press parade, less concerned about how the sausage was made, were only too happy to get the bandwagon out and pass around the sausage for the public to taste. “Cosmologists are never in doubt!” they chant, leaving out the other part, “Cosmologists are often wrong.”last_img read more

first_imgEthiopia launched the country’s firstscience academy in the capital city ofAddis Ababa.(Image: wvumc.wordpress.com)Nosimilo RamelaEthiopia launched its first science academy in the capital city of Addis Ababa on 10 April with the aim of developing scientific research and education in the country.The Ethiopia Academy of Science (EAS) says its objectives are to promote the advancement of basic and applied sciences, enhance innovative technologies, support and recognise excellence in scientific research performed by Ethiopian scientists, and promote contacts among Ethiopian scientists and those throughout the world.Academy president Demissie Habte said the EAS also plans to advise government on both natural and social science issues. “Growing political interest in science in Ethiopia has helped get the academy off the ground. There is a much better appreciation in the government for the role science can play in development,” he said.Habte said scientists first considered the idea for an Ethiopian academy in the early 1960s, but political instability in the country during the 1970s and 1980s saw the plans being put on hold. Researchers at Addis Ababa University, with the support of the UK Royal Society, revived the idea a few years ago.The Royal Society is one of oldest and most respected scientific academies in the world and has been working closely with Ethiopian scientists for the past 18 months in setting up the EAS. It said it is confident the academy has the potential to be a force for positive change and for practising evidence-based policy in Ethiopia.Roman Tewolde of the EAS said the academy will work to promote the country’s science agenda, which includes the use of new farming and industrial technology. “The academy will also give researchers financial and technical support, and publish journals and books for scientists and the public,” he said.Tewolde added that the EAS will be “an independent, merit-based institution committed to assisting the national development agenda, promoting excellence in science and arts, and advancing the nation’s natural and cultural heritage”.Until now “there has not been a national organisation to speak with authority on behalf of all learned bodies in Ethiopia”, he said.Academy structureHabte said the academy will be founded with 50 fellows from both the natural and social sciences. “New fellows will be elected by the members each year, although the small number of senior academics in the country will limit the membership at first.”He added that the academy will support policy-makers by preparing position papers on the challenges facing Ethiopia, such as rapid population growth and water security.Scientists have welcomed the launch of the academy. “This is great for our country – it’s something that will bring a wealth of knowledge to our people [and] this continent as a whole,” said Professor Teketel Yohnnes from Addis Ababa University. “Young people who are keen on a career in science can [now] look forward to experiencing and practising their work in their own country.”last_img read more
