NEW DELHI, India (CMC):Factions of the Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) want pressure brought to bear on the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) for its lack of support in the recent vote regarding the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) new governance structure and revenue-sharing model.At an ICC board meeting in Dubai last month, the BCCI found itself standing alone as nine other countries voted in support of the governance structure. On the contentious revenue-sharing model, India found support only from the Sri Lankan board, as they lost 8-2 on vote.Sections of the BCCI now want joint secretary Amitabh Chaudhary to speak to WICB President Dave Cameron about the recent ICC votes, as there is a belief the Caribbean board was not held accountable enough for the decision of the one-day side to abruptly abandon the tour here three years ago.”We let the West Indies Cricket Board go scot-free back in 2014 after they pulled out midway,” a senior BCCI official, who requested anonymity, told the Press Trust of India.”We claimed damages of US$42 million, but that was also waived by Shashank Manohar after he became the BCCI president for the second time. Now they (WICB) have also voted against us at ICC board. We need to look at these aspects.”The BCCI suspended bilateral ties with West Indies and also lodged the multimillion-dollar claim against the WICB back in November 2014, after the team walked off the tour earlier the same month following the fourth ODI, stemming from a players’ pay dispute with the board.However, the matter was settled amicably following talks between the WICB and the new Manohar-led BCCI, with the entities agreeing future bilateral tours.DISCUSSIONS NEEDEDIn fact, only yesterday, the BCCI confirmed India’s six-match limited tour of the Caribbean starting next month, but the senior BCCI official said the only entity benefiting from the arrangement was the WICB.”There has to be some discussions with Cameron and WICB as to what their viewpoint is on governance,” the official continued.”In any case, it’s the WICB which gains if we go [on the tour]. Before the ICC Annual Conference, it would be great if Amitabh speaks to their cricket board.”India toured the Caribbean last year for four Tests and also played West Indies in a two-match Twenty20 series in Florida.

City initially feared that De Bruyne would be out of action until late November, but has good progress and returned to training prior to a 0-0 draw at Liverpool before the international break.Guardiola decided against rushing City’s player of the year back for that top-of-the-table clash.However, he could be eased in from the bench against Burnley with one eye on a more prominent role for the trip to Tottenham in the Premier League on October 29.“I don’t know if he’s able to play 90 minutes but he has trained really well over the past two weeks, with no pain and ready to be part of the group,” said Guardiola.“He’s so important for us. When a player is out, I like it when they’re back to make us stronger. (There is) no doubt how important he is for us.”– Hart returns home –Joe Hart will face Manchester City for the first time on Saturday since leaving for Burnley © AFP / Anthony DevlinSaturday’s match will see Joe Hart return to City to play for the first time since his 12-year association with the club ended in August, when he moved to Burnley for £3.5 million.The England goalkeeper was part of the City team who ended their 35-year wait for a trophy by winning the FA Cup in 2011, before securing their first league title since 1968 a year later.He was also part of the team who regained the Premier League title in 2014, but fell out of favour when Guardiola arrived as manager in 2016, as first Claudio Bravo and then Ederson were brought in as first choice.“I think there is no doubt how important he was and is. Tomorrow you will see how people appreciate what he has done for this club,” added Guardiola.“What this club has become is because the people from Abu Dhabi helped to build something special with the facilities.“But after it’s down to the quality of the players in those 10 years. Joe is part of that, no doubt about it.”Guardiola, meanwhile, insisted he has no regrets in letting Jadon Sancho leave the Etihad.Sancho, 18, made his England debut in last week’s Nations League draw in Croatia, 14 months after leaving City to join Borussia Dortmund for £8 million.The winger rejected a contract offer from City because he was worried he would not get enough playing time, but Guardiola said the club did all they could to keep him and doesn’t believe Sancho will return in a big money move.“We know what we have done with Jadon. We did absolutely everything and he decided to move on to Germany so all the best,” added Guardiola.“I think when he decided to move on from here it was because he didn’t want to be here. When he doesn’t want to be here I think he’s not looking forward to coming back here.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne is fit again after two months out with a knee injury © AFP / Paul ELLISMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Oct 19 – Kevin de Bruyne is in contention to make his return from injury when Manchester City host Burnley on Saturday, City boss Pep Guardiola has confirmed.The Belgian has made just one substitute appearance this season after suffering a knee injury in training on August 15.
The Light Horse Association welcomed Masetti and his horses to stay with them for his stay in Fort St. John. Masetti continues his ride south on Monday, September 16th and should take three days to get to Dawson Creek.You can follow the long last ride on Instagram at; filipemasettiTo view the website; CLICK HERE FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Thursday, September 12th, 2019 people driving along the Alaska Hwy south bound would have seen the lone male rider on his buckskin coloured Quarter Horse and pack horse travelling into town.Filipe Masetti started his ride in Fairbanks, Alaska on May 17th, 2019, the end destination for this ride will be next spring for the 2021 Calgary Stampede yet will winter the horses once he arrives in Grande Prairie on this leg of the ride.Masetti is travelling the Americas as he shares, for the last long ride. Inspired by a book written in the 1925 by a Swiss school teacher who travels by horseback from Argentine to New York. Masetti’s father would read the story to him when he was a child. Masetti would then graduate from journalism and create his own stories.- Advertisement -Masetti shares he is no stranger to long distance rides with a previous ride from Calgary to the bottom of Argentina taking 5 years to complete. He has used the ride to raise awareness and funds for a children’s cancer hospital in Brazil. To date he has raised $60,000 and says the children are what keep him going on this ride.The ride is at a constant walk, travelling 4 km in a hour and 30 km in a day. It takes a lot of patience and being constantly mindful of your horses as they are your sole mode of transportation, shares Masetti.The ride carries a couple of messages, to celebrate the horse and Western Culture as the name Filipe, translates to, friend of horses. As well as telling people nothing is impossible, that if you have a dream or goal, no matter how hard it may seem, to work for it.Advertisement
Mwape Musonda, the leading scorer this season in the South African Premiership, halved the deficit 13 minutes from time for non-qualifiers Zambia.Five-time Cup of Nations champions Cameroon have drawn potentially powerful Ghana and outsiders Benin and Guinea-Bissau in Group F at the biennial African football showcase.In Dubai, Manfred Starke scored after 31 minutes as Namibia won 1-0 against four-time former champions Ghana, who replaced all 11 starters at half-time.The result will lift Namibian morale before facing more fancied Ivory Coast, Morocco and South Africa in Group D, regarded as the toughest of the six first-round sections.Uganda and Turkmenistan drew 0-0 in Abu Dhabi and there was a similar result in Marbella between the Democratic Republic of Congo and Burkina Faso, who did not qualify.Guinea’s preparations started disappointingly when they fell 1-0 to non-qualifiers Gambia with Ebrima Sohna scoring just before half-time in Moroccan city of Marrakech.0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Defending champions Cameroon began their countdown to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations with a 2-1 warm-up win over Zambia © AFP / PIUS UTOMI EKPEIJOHANNESBURG, South Africa, Jun 9 – Defending champions Cameroon edged Zambia 2-1 and Ghana lost 1-0 to Namibia Sunday in warm-up matches for the Africa Cup of Nations, which kicks off on June 21 in Egypt.Playing their first friendly ahead of the 24-nation tournament, Cameroon built a two-goal lead through Paul-Georges Ntep and Joel Tagueu in Madrid.

The woods. We call them by their primary substance: wood. But would wood evolve from plants lacking woody stems? Was there some evolutionary pressure to force plants to grow tall to reach the sun, so that lucky mutations found a way to produce lignin and the other building blocks of wood? What other mutations did the blind evolutionary algorithm have to find to organize the components into trunks for trees? Two discoveries, a fossil and a mechanism, offer evolutionists a way to enhance their woody story. The early wood. A fossil plant said to be 400 million years old was reported in the BBC News. The cross-section of a stem of this early Devonian plant shows the rings of cells characteristic of wood. The find pushes the origin of wood “about 10 million years earlier than previously thought,” said Mark Kinver, who failed to identify the thinkers (presumably evolutionists). Surprisingly, it appears this plant (about 8-16 inches tall) did not need wood for height. The discoverers from the University of Liege in Belgium feel the “unexpected” woody structure “appeared to be a mechanism to transport water rather than acting as a support to allow plants to grow taller.” Dr. Philippe Gerienne said the findings “helped shed light on the initial biological role of the woody substance in early plants” because it appears “rays (horizontal cells) most probably evolved after the other cells in wood (longitudinal cells).” How he knew that was not explained. Michael Marshall at New Scientist gave an abbreviated report on this discovery, calling this the “World’s oldest wood – so far”. Trees didn’t begin to evolve till15 million years later, he said. That’s a long time for plants to grow close to the ground with a structurally-strong material that could have given them height. The paper by Gerienne’s team was published in Science.1 The authors admitted in the abstract, “The first steps of wood evolution are unknown.” They could only offer a suggestion: “The small size of both plants and the presence of thick-walled cells in their cortex support the earlier suggestion that the evolution of wood was initially driven by hydraulic constraints rather than by the necessity of mechanical support for increasing height.” On the difficulties of wood evolution, see 10/26/2001, 05/30/2008, 01/29/2009, and 12/16/2010 bullet 2. The required mechanism. A mechanism that drives plants upward toward the sun was described in PhysOrg. This article ignored the E-word evolution in favor of design language: “UBC [University of British Columbia] researchers have discovered a key mechanism that — much like a construction site foreperson — controls the direction of plant growth as well as the physical properties of the biopolymers that plants produce.” Scientists have been trying to find this design for a long time, the article indicated. “The finding is a major clue in a 50-year-long quest to explain how plants coordinate the behaviour of millions of cells as they grow upward to compete for light, penetrate soil to obtain nutrients and water, and even open petals to flower.” In a nutshell, the finding explains how microtubules in the cell become organized into scaffolding for cargo transportation, capture and positioning of large structures, and cell shape. In addition to the basic cell shape acting as a guide, a protein called CLASP that “plays a key role as a foreperson, modulating the geometric constraints of the cell.” Without CLASP, microtubules underwent “catastrophic disassembly” when encountering an edge. CLASP enabled them to bend up to 90 degrees and continue growing in nice, parallel arrays. Computer models confirmed what the gene knockout experiments showed. Explained one researcher, “We confirmed that the self-organization depends on the extrinsic cues from the cellular geometry, and that the presence of the CLASP protein along select edges modified the pattern dramatically.” Where will this finding lead? “Microtubules and the CLASP protein are common to all cell types in plants animals, fungi and many unicellular organisms,” another researcher commented. “So what we find out about their behaviour in plant cells is relevant to understanding their function in cells types [sic] as diverse as neurons and disease-causing protozoans.” Of all the nerve; design-based inquiry may improve your health some day. 1.

One research team tried to find their way in the dark with a Darwin-brand flashlight, hoping it would shed light on evolution. Too bad the batteries have been long dead. How could it be otherwise? The second law demands it for undirected processes. The other team turned on the lights of intelligent design and found the foreman on the job, directing building blocks into functional structures. You don’t need a dead Darwin flashlight in a well-lit factory.(Visited 12 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
