Giwa Codemns Committee’s Decision on NFF

first_imgThe presumptive chairman of Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Ambassador Chris Giwa has condemned the decision to recognise the Amaju Pinnick led faction, by the chairman of the House committee on Sports Hon Bukar Lawan without the consent of the entire Assembly.In a press briefing yesterday, Giwa noted that the Committee’s chairman had openly taken sides with his opponent through his conduct and utterances which were at variance with the position of the whole body, before the volte face that subsequently led to his after-thought invitation to face the committee. To further buttress his position, the Chairman said that appropriate steps would be taken to drag the committee chairman before the Leadership of the House of Representatives for conduct which is at variance with his oath of office to be fair and just to all.Giwa further stated that Lawan erred by his action without first laying the committees report on the Floor of the Green chambers, thereafter the report would be deliberated upon before a final position was taken on the issue since it was the House who ordered the committee to look into the matter.He said that all the documents and legal pronouncements were all laid bare before the body, which invariably runs contrary to the claims being made by the chairman of the House committee to justify his hurriedly taken position. While urging Nigerians to discountenance the position taken by the committee as not representing the facts.Meanwhile, an application for Issuance of criminal summons against Amaju Pinnick and Demola Olajire pursuant to section 143 of the criminal procedure code has been made.Amaju had through his media aide Demola Olajire caused a statement to be issued last week that the Writ of Execution issued by the Federal High Court in Jos last week that the Order was fake without recourse to the appropriate authority.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

OOL Cells Are DOA

first_imgNASA throws money at origin-of-life (OOL) studies that are doomed to failure, and at education programs to tell students that futility is good science.NASA Funds Rutgers Scientists’ Pursuit of the Origins of Life (Astrobiology Magazine). Protein nanomachines are anything but simple. They were essential for the first living cells, but so was DNA. A cell could not survive without both, but NASA is giving money to Rutgers in a vain quest to find out if chance could construct proteins from the ground up. It’s an ENIGMA—the name of the project and an apt description of the quest.What are the origins of life on Earth and possibly elsewhere? Did “protein nanomachines” evolve here before life began to catalyze and support the development of living things? Could the same thing have happened on Mars, the moons of Jupiter and Neptune, and elsewhere in the universe?A Rutgers University-led team of scientists called ENIGMA, for “Evolution of Nanomachines in Geospheres and Microbial Ancestors,” will try to answer those questions over the next five years, thanks to an approximately $6 million NASA grant and membership in the NASA Astrobiology Institute.New cartoon by Brett Miller for CEH, published here for the first time with appreciation.It’s bad enough that these evolutionists are going to spend taxpayer money for five years to accomplish nothing, but they also want to indoctrinate the next generation of students into the cult of astrobiology (or, as we call it, bio-astrology).We want to develop an education and outreach program at Rutgers that leads to an astrobiology minor for undergraduate students and helps inform K-12 schoolchildren about the origins of life on Earth and what we know and don’t know about the potential for life on other planets. We also want to help make Rutgers a center of excellence in this field so future undergraduate and graduate students and faculty will gravitate towards this university to try to understand the evolution and origin of the molecules that derive energy for life.It may sound nice for them to teach “what we don’t know” about the origin of life. What this means in practice, though, is that instructors will tantalize them with visions of the “potential” for life, with the goal of attracting them to join the cult of bio-astrology. Initiates into the cult will then be tempted to go to the secular universities for further indoctrination. Learning facts about organic chemistry will be included, but that is only window dressing. It cannot address the core issue: can life arise by chance? Initiates will be carefully shielded from honest critiques of the bio-astrology cult, and will be led to believe that the Stuff Happens Law is scientific.Study reveals simple chemical process that may have led to the origin of life on Earth (Astrobiology Magazine). This article celebrates work in Tokyo that is also doomed to failure. Even if they get alpha-hydroxy acids to link up, chance would have neither the desire nor the power to make a wholesale change over to the amino acids which make up life, which degrade in water.While environments of early Earth might have had monomers that could give rise to life, it would have been difficult for polymers to arise from these without the help of enzymes. In this case, the team showed these polymers could have formed with alpha-hydroxy acids before the existence of enzymes on early Earth.This multi-national team showed that hydroxy acids polymerize more easily than amino acids, and that they could have provided the necessary toolkit to kick-start the formation of more complex molecules for the origin of life on Earth.Toolkits are used by toolmakers and builders who use intelligent design. Enzymes and proteins simply will not arise by chance; the sequence space is far too fast compared to the functional space, and further, nature has no way to select one-handed amino acids required for proteins. Biblical miracles require far less faith than thinking that proteins will arise by chance (see “The Amoeba’s Journey” from the Illustra film, Origin). The perhapsimaybecouldness index of this article is nearly as astronomical.We’ve got to stop the storytellers before they indoctrinate another generation into their cult. And how do you stop a cult? YOU TELL STUDENTS THE TRUTH. Cultist storytellers don’t want students to hear the truth. They want to corner the market and forbid alternatives. We are not the ones trying to silence academic freedom. We want academic freedom! The totalitarian dogmatists are the bio-astrologists and Darwinians. Their cult can only succeed if they are the only ones at the microphone. Their faith CANNOT STAND UP to the truth. Will you let another generation be sold this hopelessly anti-scientific, anti-rational bill of goods? The cult leaders will win by default, and you will have another generation rise up believing that Stuff Happens, and that is how we got here. Get angry enough to do something, or else the flag of science will continue to look like this new cartoon by Brett Miller (below).

Blog-To-Newsletter: Cheap Community and Advocacy Tools

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market dana oshiro Tags:#start#startups A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… In the past, ReadWriteWeb covered a number of tools for book publishing; however, these are also great for easy newsletter building. Blurb and Lulu allow users to upload files and create saddle-stitched magazine-style booklets. Volunteer-run organizations often spend thousands of dollars on quarterly newsletters and direct mail solicitations. While the groups have the best of intentions, they often lack the in-house graphic designers and high-quality printers to actually produce these goods. Nevertheless, they almost always have blogs, websites and social media profiles for outreach purposes. In the past few months ReadWriteWeb has seen an influx of blog-to-newsletter media solutions. While many technologists have criticized print as a dead medium, blog-to-newsletter tools may be fantastic for advocates and service orgs. Below are a few companies to help get you started:MagCloud for Wikia: MagCloud has always given users a way to create custom magazines. In 2008, we covered MagCloud as an easy solution for self-publishing. The company’s recent Wikia partnership lets you take your favorite Wikia site and create print pages directly from the admin panel. MagCloud also offers PDF uploads for those with other types of sites. Fast Pencil: Earlier this month we featured FastPencil, as a company with great publishing and formatting tools for novelists and writers. One of the features of this site is that you can import your blog and it will auto-populate pages of your book. This service would offer a quick integration of your org’s blog and it also offers basic formatting including clean font choices. Tabbloid: HP Labs’ Tabbloid offers users a chance to select their favorite feeds, aggregate them as PDFs and schedule an email of the PDF.
