We want to know what happened, why they called it for Robert? Why? They have to justify it,” he said.Fernandez then turned his ire towards commissioner Bai Cristobal, noting that the official could have handled the matter better knowing that decisions made from that situation gravely impact some of the players’ career in the long run.Bolick is in the running for the Most Valuable Player plum, with him currently sixth in the race with averages of 13.56 points, 7.56 rebounds, and 4.67 assists.He also posted a near triple-double performance in the game with 14 markers, 11 dimes, and seven boards, but him being sent to the showers in the game against St. Benilde already rules him out of any individual plum at the end of the season.ADVERTISEMENT Britain’s Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to give up royal titles Police seize P68-M worth of ‘shabu’ in Pasay Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks PLAY LIST 01:40Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks01:32Taal Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite Bishop Baylon encourages faithful in Albay to help Taal evacuees OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. “Why would you throw him out?

PSG full-back Dani Alves was given a straight red card for dissent, and Lyon made their man advantage count deep into injury-time as substitute Depay picked out the top corner.“At the start, I wanted to cross, but I saw that the keeper was on the side of the goal,” Fekir told Canal+.“It’s going to be difficult (to catch PSG), and the goal of the club is to take a Champions League place.”PSG centre-back Marquinhos added: “Football is like that, they manage to shoot and score two goals.”Lyon retook second place from Marseille after inflicting only a second league defeat of the season on PSG, but Bruno Genesio’s men would still need an unlikely collapse from the capital club to launch a title challenge.“We’re happy with the result, especially with beating the leaders when we’re aiming for second or third place,” said coach Genesio.Lyon made their man advantage count deep into injury-time as substitute Depay picked out the top corner © AFP / JEFF PACHOUDWith Neymar missing due to a thigh problem, Kylian Mbappe returned to the away team’s starting XI after scoring as a substitute in the midweek 8-0 thrashing of Dijon, when Neymar netted four times.Lyon caught the runaway league leaders cold with less than two minutes on the clock, as French international Fekir produced a moment of magic.Alphonse Areola was anticipating a cross when Fekir shaped to take a free-kick from the right-hand side, but the attacking midfielder whipped in a shot that flicked the inside of the post on its way past the stranded PSG goalkeeper.The 24-year-old has now scored 16 league goals this season from 19 appearances, while it was also the earliest PSG had conceded in a Ligue 1 game since May 2007.– Cavani left waiting for record –PSG were rocked by Lyon’s intense early pressing, but Edinson Cavani, looking for the goal he needed to break Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s all-time club goalscoring record after levelling the Swede’s total of 156 on Wednesday, saw a long-range lob spin narrowly wide after home keeper Anthony Lopes’s poor clearance.Paris Saint-Germain’s forward Kylian Mbappe is carried off on a stretcher © AFP / JEFF PACHOUDMbappe, already bleeding from his head from an earlier challenge, had to be stretchered off and replaced by Julian Draxler after being flattened by some strong goalkeeping from Portuguese Lopes.PSG levelled in first-half stoppage-time, though, as Kurzawa blasted home a magnificent left-footed volley off the crossbar from his fellow full-back Alves’s dinked cross.Unai Emery’s side were reduced to 10 men before the hour mark when Brazilian Alves was sent off for dissent after becoming incensed by a free-kick decision, with Marco Verratti perhaps lucky not to follow him after knocking the red card out of referee Clement Turpin’s hand.Lyon almost retook the lead with 13 minutes to play as Rafael headed over from close range, before Cavani was also booked for dissent as PSG continued to lose their heads.Maxwel Cornet saw a low effort turned behind by Areola, but it was 69th-minute substitute Depay who provided the winning moment in style.The former Manchester United winger collected the ball just outside the area in the fourth minute of added time and planted a magnificent, curling finish into the top corner to score his ninth league goal of an up-and-down season.Monaco’s midfielder Rachid Ghezzal (R) shoots to score a goal against Metz on January 21, 2018 at the Louis II Stadium in Monaco © AFP / VALERY HACHEEarlier on Sunday, fourth-placed Monaco eased to a 3-1 victory over Metz in the principality.Brazilian left-back Jorge opened the scoring for the reigning champions on the stroke of half-time and Rachid Ghezzal added a second after visiting goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima was sent off.Ibrahima Niane pulled one back for bottom club Metz, but Rony Lopes put any thoughts of a comeback to bed with a late tap-in.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgHowever, the Portuguese is far from the only culprit, with United’s slide on the field dating back to Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013.Here, AFP Sports looks at three things that have gone wrong for the 20-time English champions.Not so special anymoreMourinho introduced himself to English football as “the special one” when taking charge of Chelsea for the first time 14 years ago.He backed up that bravado by delivering back-to-back Premier League titles. Mourinho’s aura and tactical discipline also inspired a title win in his second spell at Stamford Bridge and a treble at Inter Milan. When at the helm at Real Madrid he broke Barcelona’s La Liga hegemony under Pep Guardiola.Jose Mourinho won the Premier League in his first two seasons at Chelsea © AFP / ADRIAN DENNISYet his third seasons second time round at Chelsea and at Madrid ended acrimoniously and a third campaign at United already looks as though it is heading the same way.In contrast to the exciting brand of football offered by Manchester City, Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea under Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp, Mauricio Pochettino and Maurizio Sarri, Mourinho’s conservative tactics seem outdated and at odds with United’s tradition under Ferguson.Moreover, whereas Mourinho used to staunchly defend his players, at United he has routinely criticised his squad in public.Spurs fans goaded Mourinho with cries of “You’re not special anymore” and his rant at the media as he stormed out of his post-match press conference demanding respect for his record of winning three Premier League titles did little to quell the feeling he is living off past glories.United only in nameMourinho’s sour mood has not been reserved just for his players, but also the club’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward over a perceived lack of backing in the transfer window.Not seeing eye-to-eye: Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward didn’t sign the centre-back Jose Mourinho wanted in the transfer window © AFP/File / JON SUPERWoodward decided there was not value in the market for a host of centre-back targets identified by Mourinho and questioned whether they were any better than the five already in United’s squad.It effectively means a former banker is overruling an experienced manager on football matters and United are investigating the possibility of appointing a director of football as a middle man for the first time.Woodward also insisted neither Paul Pogba nor Anthony Martial were for sale despite a troubled relationship between the manager and both players.Pogba, who cost United a then world record £89 million ($115 million) in 2016, claimed he would be fined for revealing his true feelings after the first game of the season as his agent Mino Raiola appears to be agitating for a move, with Barcelona apparently interested.Martial was fined by Mourinho for not returning to the club’s pre-season tour of the United States after the birth of his second child and did not even make the bench for Monday’s defeat.Misspent fortuneWoodward has been accused of having divided loyalties after United’s share price hit a record high last week despite the club’s on-field troubles.Alexis Sanchez is one of a number of big money signings in recent years to disappoint for Manchester United © AFP / Oli SCARFFYet, while American owners the Glazer family remain unpopular among many fans, United have spent lavishly in the transfer market in recent years.The problem is a reported £700 million investment in transfer fees alone since Ferguson retired has been largely wasted.Big-money signings Angel di Maria, Memphis Depay, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Morgan Schneiderlin and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are no longer with the club.Luke Shaw, Juan Mata, Martial, Pogba and Alexis Sanchez have also failed to hit the standards they showed at previous clubs to spark United’s interest in the first place.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Yesterday’s man?

first_img(Visited 28 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Fewer people would say foolish things if they noticed how ideas can refute themselves.“There’s no such things as free will.” Stephen Cave, a “philosopher and writer in Berlin,” argues this position on The Atlantic:In recent decades, research on the inner workings of the brain has helped to resolve the nature-nurture debate—and has dealt a further blow to the idea of free will. Brain scanners have enabled us to peer inside a living person’s skull, revealing intricate networks of neurons and allowing scientists to reach broad agreement that these networks are shaped by both genes and environment. But there is also agreement in the scientific community that the firing of neurons determines not just some or most but all of our thoughts, hopes, memories, and dreams.His interlocutors could tease back by asking if Mr. Cave made that argument of his own choice. Did the neuroscientists choose to research what goes on in another person’s skull, without thinking about what’s going on in their own? Is their agreement about genetic and environmental determinism determined by the firing of their own neurons? Then how can they claim it is true? In their view, it would be no more true than the firing of neurons in the skull of a person who disagrees with their consensus.“To strengthen an opinion, simply say it is based on morality: ‘Moral’ label instantly makes opinions more resistant to change.” (Science Daily). This observation may well be true; persuaders might indeed get more mileage out of their rhetoric by appeals to morality. But we must turn the question around, and ask if the psychologists from Ohio State believed it was moral (or not) to conduct their research. If so, they are not simply saying it was moral; they are presupposing that morals are more than matters of opinion or rhetoric. If not, they give us no reason to believe their research at all.“What’s the Meaning of Life? Physics” (National Geographic). In this piece, Jeremy Berlin reviews a new book by Adrian Bejan with a self-explanatory title, The Physics of Life: The Evolution of Everything. Bejan, starting with Darwin’s view that humans are coextensive with all of nature, considers his so-called “constructal law” a purely materialistic process that generates universes, life, and minds. If so, it generates ideas, too, like this one:Evolution is a crucial part of how we need to define efficiency. I don’t mean evolution in the Darwinian sense. I mean that there’s a universal urge or tendency toward design and organization that changes over time in a discernible, seemingly goal-oriented direction. So it would be more accurate to call these things evolutionary design and evolutionary organization. This has nothing to do with intelligent design, by the way. It’s simply treating design and evolution as two natural scientific concepts. One must ask in response, though, if concepts are real. If they are outcomes of unguided, non-intelligent natural laws, and are always changing over time (evolving), on what basis can they be considered true? Bejan is certainly aware of opposite worldviews that see things differently. Did the constructal law produce those as well? How is he to determine which concept, then, is better, or truer, than any other?My own thinking evolved while I was writing this book. I conclude with the idea that science itself is an evolutionary design that empowers humans. So in that way alone, I think, the Constructal Law has a lot to say—and a lot of eyes to open.He speaks as a guru whose eyes, like the Buddha, have been enlightened. A clever debater could ask if his thinking has stopped evolving yet and reached Nirvana, and how would he know. If it is still evolving, who’s to say it might evolve into its opposite some day?The bottom line is that many of the things that we take for granted need to be explained in a better way. As you and I know, they can disappear overnight if we take our eye off the ball. Or, worse, the ball will hit us in the face. Wake up! I say to readers. If you don’t wake up, the ball will wake you up. Explanation implies importing truth. If truth evolves, it isn’t true any more. And explaining “in a better way” presupposes an unevolving standard: i.e., knowing which explanation is better and which is worse—not just for our culture, but for all time.Incidentally, his definition of “physics” encompasses more than the laws of Newton or Einstein. To him, physics (Greek) and nature (Latin) refer to “everything that happens.” Well, then, his constructal law is just one of those things that happens from time to time. In that vein, here’s how he might explain physics: “Stuff Happens.” That phrase, however, is incapable of evolving, otherwise nothing would ever happen again, and the phrase would be false.Accused of reductionism, Bejan admits, in spite of himself, that his own idea is a manifestation of the Stuff Happens Law (q.v.). Apparently, that ball has not hit him in the face yet.There is no rational escape from the self-refuting fallacy. Your job is to recognize it when you see it and extricate those entangled in it back into the realm of rationality. Justifiable logical concepts presuppose non-evolving morality and supernaturalism. Materialism cannot supply the preconditions for intelligibility of concepts argued to be true. It defeats itself, therefore. This means it is not true, was not true, and cannot ever be true, despite any new evidence put forth in its favor. It’s like saying, “My idea is that there are no ideas.” Yes, we all need to wake up to the crazy ideas materialists and relativists are pawning as “science.”last_img read more

first_imgThis year’s International EarthCache Day is on October 9, and Geocaching HQ is excited to partner up again with the Geological Society of America to offer a souvenir for finding an EarthCache on that date.EarthCaches provide an opportunity to learn a geological lesson and visit awe-inspiring geological locations. Visitors can see how our planet has been shaped by geological processes, how we manage its resources and how scientists gather evidence. Typically, to log an EarthCache, you will have to provide answers to questions by observing the geological location.Thankfully, there is a group of dedicated EarthCache Reviewers who help facilitate this program so that geocachers can enjoy EarthCaches all over the world. Instead of reading a lesson in a book, they see and learn about geological features with their own eyes.Who are EarthCache Reviewers?They are community volunteers with scientific backgrounds that work with EarthCache cache owners to develop the best submissions possible. Learn about their story and what they love so much about EarthCaches.GeoawareCA, SandraSandra has been an EarthCache Reviewer since 2009, making her the longest standing active EarthCache Reviewer.

first_imgThe days of shooting a successful Web series from out of your apartment with a low-quality camera, like EQAL’s Lonelygirl15, are long gone. Nowadays you need a well-written script, a polished musical score, big names (in the YouTube space, at least), special effects and… money.Viral video master Freddie Wong, in an interesting move for the YouTube community, has broken down exactly how much he spent creating his hit Web series Video Game High School in a post on RocketJump’s official blog, RocketJump being VGHS’s production company.  Beginning in May after a successful Kickstarter campaign, the series to date has gathered more than 26 million views on its nine episodes. The first eight segments averaged 12 minutes in length, the finale clocked in just under 22 minutes long.So how much did VGHS cost to make?$636,010.71“While this amount initially seems like a lot of money, the truth is, it’s not,” writes Wong. “VGHS was a six-month project with a cast and crew of over 160 people.” Wong goes on to explain that he is disclosing this information, in what seems to be an industry first, because “we cannot expect our fans to support us financially if they have no idea how much things actually cost.” Well said, Wong. Without further ado, here is thebreakdown of VGHS’ costs via an infographic by creative studio The Danger Brain:  5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App Related Posts 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… fruzsina eordoghlast_img read more
