Godfrey Stewart ready for D’Cup test

first_imgWith the vast majority of last year’s team unavailable for this year’s campaign, Leford Parce, the coach of former daCosta Cup champions Godfrey Stewart High School, is not bubbling with the usual enthusiasm going into the 2017 schoolboy football season. In fact, coach Parce believes the task will be quite tedious, after losing most of the fifth form players due to disciplinary action taken against them by the school’s administration. According to him, the players in this year’s team are untried players, who do not have either Under-16 or Under-14 experience under their belts. However, he is confident that both midfielders Tyriel Williams and captain Alvarez Cooper will have a break out season this year. “We are going to be having a pretty young team because we have not retained any of our older players from last season,” said Parce, who noted that due of financial constraints, their pre-season has not been what he would have wanted. Nonetheless, he said what they have managed to do have been of great benefit adding that he hopes the games they have managed to get under their belt will prove to be enough. “We started late, so we had only four weeks of camp preparation,” said Parce. “However, we have been unbeaten in all our preseason games, so I am hoping that it will help the guys going into our first game on Monday.” According to Parce, his primary goal is to get through the first round and then take it from there through the other rounds. He believes that, if they get through the first round, the team would have gained enough experience and confidence to do well going into the other stages of the competition. “Our first goal is to go on to the Second Round … what this will do is to give the guys the necessary competitive games to gain experience,” said Parce. “After the first round, we should be able to compete because it’s a good bunch of guys, it is just that experience lacking.” Godfrey Stewart High will kick-off their season on Monday with a Group D fixture against Black River High. The other teams in the group are: Grange Hill High, Little London High, Manning’s School and Petersfield High.last_img read more

Donegal has some of the largest families in Ireland!

first_imgLarge families have not completely disappeared in Ireland. There were 64,248 families with 4 or more children, 16,646 families with 5 or more children of which 4,845 families had 6 or more children. Donegal, Cavan and Monaghan had the largest families with 2.19 children per family on average.The average age of the Irish mammy is increasing – the average age of a first-time mum is now 32 1/2 – more than two years older than the age of 30 in 2000, and six years older than 26 in 1985. Aeidín (Cor) Sheppard, of the Central Statistics Office says; “People are waiting a little bit longer to have children, that’sfor first-time mothers and then overall the age is increasing as well.“We are having smaller families but the larger families haven’t died out completely, there were 64,248 families in the country with four or more children, that seems to be quite prevalent in Donegal, Monaghan and Cavan where we have the largest families, with an average there of 2.2 children per family.“That’s well above the national average, so we still have lots of large families in the country. We have 4,845 families that have six ormore children.”Ireland’s birth rate is the second highest in Europe at an average of 1.92 children per women, just behind France at 1.96. As mammies have their children at an older age, their children don’t leave the nest for longer. In 2011, 439,000 adult kids stayed at home with their parents; 180,700 were working, 138,000 were studying and 98,000 unemployed.“There’s lots of people still living at home and being looked after by mammies and daddies, maybe we make them too comfortable!“I know I have a 22-year-old at home, who’s not in too much of a rush to run out of the door at the moment anyway.”As women have their children at an older age, it’s also a sign of improving health on a national level. Krysia Lynch of AIMS Ireland says; “You’ll find that women who are having children later tend to have much better health themselves, they tend to have had some sort of a career and are in middle-income earning brackets so they look after themselves well.“Also research shows having children later, whilst your energy levels may be lower, your capacity to deal with the mental and emotionalrequirements of parenting tends to be more robust.” Out of the 66,000 women who gave birth in 2015, almost a quarter of them (14,500) were non-Irish according to the CSO.New mums were more likely to be bringing home a baby boy in the same year as there were 33,619 boys born compared to 32,290 girls.Donegal has some of the largest families in Ireland! was last modified: March 25th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:childrenCSOfamilyMother’s Daylast_img read more

Colleges Tell the RIAA They Have Better Things to Do

first_imgRelated Posts Tags:#music#web 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnoutcenter_img corvida 1 With blazing fast speeds, college campuses are often used by students to download all the music they’d like. For the past few years the RIAA has been lurking around college campus intranets and using college IT and Administrators to choose their next unsuspecting pool of college victims. It seems that may be about to change and college students nationwide may now be able to breathe a little easier as their universities fight back.We’re Not Necessarily On Your SideDue to the transparency of college networks, students are an easy target for the RIAA’s resistant efforts. However, don’t get it twisted. Colleges are not about to start defending the students that actually violate copyright laws. For not only are these students violating the laws of the music industry, but also those of the college. With that being said, colleges are fighting back because they feel that the resources and time spent on chasing these students is cutting into better things that faculty members could be doing. The Costs and Efforts of the HuntSo what exactly does it cost colleges to hunt down these students? With the increasing number of subpoenas and “cease-and-desist” letters coming from the RIAA, it’s become a full-time job for college administration to keep up with students across their network, especially if the campus is huge. This has resulted in some colleges having to hire more full-time employees to monitor the networks and make sure the correct correspondents are actually violating the law and receive their notices. Talk about a time-consuming job! Not only that, colleges have also had to install more software to help track and monitor illegal network activities, which results in yet another software that IT employees have to get a handle on.Just Not Worth All the EffortIn the end, it’s understandable for some colleges to simply stop helping out the RIAA. Their efforts are costing them a ton of money and time. Instead, colleges are opting to focus their efforts towards their school’s mission statements and to the academic well-being of their students. Colleges could spend more time better educating their students on the most current software, upgrading their own systems to reflect these teachings, and overall helping their students in a variety of other ways. We’re sure students will be happy to hear this, but we’d like to warn college students once again that campus efforts to stop piracy will not stop completely. 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People…last_img read more

Waves that drive global weather patterns finally explained, thanks to inspiration from bagel-shaped quantum matter

first_img They are about as far apart as two things in science can be: a type of ocean wave that helps drive the El Niño climate cycle, and quantum materials that, thanks to a particularly strange bit of physics, have insulating interiors and conduct current along their surface. Yet, in a remarkable case of lateral thinking, the two disparate phenomena can be explained with the same topological mathematics of shapes with holes in them, a team of physicists reports.“I’ve been trying to make the case that these two fields really are very closely connected,” says Brad Marston, a physicist at Brown University who led the study. In addition to explaining why ocean and atmospheric waves can become trapped at the equator, the study also suggests that condensed matter physics—the study of liquids and solids, such as the semiconductors that make up computer chips—and earth science could cross-pollinate in other ways, such as using topology to explain waves on other planets and moons, or in astrophysical disks of gas and dust.For the new study, Marston teamed up with condensed-matter physicist Pierre Delplace and geophysicist Antoine Venaille at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon. The team applied condensed-matter theory to two types of waves, known as Kelvin and Yanai waves, that can propagate through the seas and air near Earth’s equator. Both are undulations with wavelengths hundreds or thousands of kilometers long that carry energy eastward along the equator, contributing to El Niño, tropical storm systems, and other weather patterns. They result from the interplay of two physical processes. First, gravity competes with buoyancy, causing colder air or water to sink and warmer air or water to rise and making the blobs of air or seawater independently bob up and down. Second, Earth’s rotation to the east creates the so-called Coriolis effect, which makes fluids moving over Earth’s surface veer in opposite directions depending on the hemisphere.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)To see how these effects combine to drive the waves, Marston and his colleagues initially follow the same mathematical approach as Taroh Matsuno, an atmospheric scientist at the University of Tokyo who predicted the equatorially trapped waves in 1966. They simplify the vertical structure of the ocean or atmosphere and focus on a narrow latitude band, over which the Coriolis effect remains roughly constant. But then they take what most earth scientists would consider a step backward. They solve their equations not for equatorial waves, but for a more easily analyzed class of waves that occurs at higher latitudes.This is a trick that condensed-matter physicists routinely pull. They switch to a simpler problem and then show it implicitly contains the answer to the original puzzle. Marston and colleagues study the waves not in ordinary space, but in an abstract space of all possible waves of different wavelengths and Coriolis effects. The equations for extremely long waves show two mathematical singularities, where the wave amplitude varies wildly with wavelength. These singularities are mathematical holes and also arise in topological insulators. Marston says there are two of them because Earth has two hemispheres, with opposite Coriolis effects.As a result, the hemispheres behave a bit like two slabs of such a material, the researchers found in a paper published today in Science. Just as putting two electrically insulating materials together lets current flow along their surface, putting two hemispheres together results in waves at their interface—the equator—that die off with increasing latitude. And, as in the case of the material, the waves are robust—or, as physicists say, “topologically protected” by the singularities in the abstract space.The topological approach reduces the problem to the barest facts, Marston says: Earth is rotating and has an equator where the Coriolis force switches direction. All the details of the dynamics fall away. “From a technical perspective, our calculation is much easier than what Matsuno did in 1966,” he says. Any rotating planet, however strange its shape, would have these waves; the team found that they emerged even for a hypothetical doughnut-shaped planet.Marston and his colleagues say they hope to apply the same idea to other systems, such as disks of gas and dust around stars and black holes as well as the atmospheres of Venus and Titan, which also show equatorial waves. Inspired by their work, Cristina Marchetti, a theorist at Syracuse University in New York, and her colleagues recently studied how bird flocks and other collectives can experience Coriolis-like effects. “It is nice we started tuning our antennas towards identifying topological phenomena and studying their consequences,” says condensed-matter physicist Jiannis Pachos at the University of Leeds in the United Kingdom. But several geophysicists say they found the reasoning abstruse. “I must admit that I didn’t understand much of it,” says Matthew Wheeler of the Australian Bureau of Meteorology in Melbourne, who studies Kelvin waves. Perhaps the two communities are like two hemispheres that must find some place to meet in the middle. DAN PISUT Waves that drive global weather patterns finally explained, thanks to inspiration from bagel-shaped quantum matter The ocean waves that help drive climate cycles like El Niño (reflected here by the warm eastern Pacific Ocean temperatures in February 2016) may arise from the same math that governs topological insulators.  By George MusserOct. 5, 2017 , 4:20 PMlast_img read more

Yuvraj bats for 15 minutes at NCA

first_imgRehabilitating at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) here, Yuvraj Singh on Thursday said that hitting the nets after being treated for cancer is a “big achievement” for him and he is hoping for things to get better with each passing day.”It’s a big achievement for me hitting the nets. I felt happy, really good to be in the nets,” Yuvraj, recovering from treatment for cancer, said after a training session here.According to Yuvraj, it was not a “bad” session for him considering the six-month layoff.”And it was not a bad session, for the first time after about six months. I got tired after about 15 minutes but I am sure every day will be a better day,” he told reporters.Hoping to make a comeback to international cricket with the Twenty20 World Cup in September, Yuvraj yesterday batted for the first time after undergoing chemotherapy in the US for a rare germ cell cancer earlier this year.”I am right now in the second week of rehabilitation and I am feeling good. My body will slowly become stronger, I am sure,” he had said yesterday.”The target is the T20 World Cup, and hopefully, I will be able to come just before that,” reiterated the 30-year-old left-hander, who has not appeared in any form of the game since last November when he was diagnosed with the disease.He returned to India in April to continue his rehabilitation.last_img read more
