Animal cruelty: Who’s in charge?

first_imgPrint Nobody, claims southside residentJUST who is taking responsibility for animal cruelty and neglect?An immediate answer is demanded from a southside woman who came to the aid of a stricken horse, and whose pleas for help to relevant organisations went ignored.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up It is shocking, she told the Limerick Post, that Limerick is without a full-time animal inspector.“There is nobody to turn to. In my case Gardai, County Council and CIE were unable to assist.A horse was trapped on railway tracks, off the Ballykeeffe Boreen.Barbed wire restricted the distressed animal’s return to the nearby field.Said the woman: “I contacted the LSPCA and was told that there was no inspector and that there was nothing that they could do as the horse was on private land.“I then got on to Animal Welfare and they contacted the county council, who claimed it was nothing to do with them.“I was told CIE would have to give permission to remove the horse. The gardaí said they couldn’t do anything.“I went down to the horse every day with hay and water and my heart was breaking for it. It was freezing, and the horse was scared and couldn’t get back into the field”.Thankfully, she added, the horse returned to the field after nearly a week.All animals, she emphasised, were now at risk, given the cold spell.The absence of a full time animal inspector, she says, has to be addressed.Meanwhile, another person complained about the plight of several horses near Groody.Marion Fitzgibbon, Limerick Animal Welfare, explained that the laws regarding wandering horses were long outdated.“There is no sensible law. The existing one, which makes it illegal for us to go onto private land to retrieve a horse, is in existence since 1911”.“In the case referred to, the County Council told the horse pound not to take it as they would have to pay.“If CIE were to call the horse pound, they would have had to pay them.“We would have brought him to the sanctuary in Kilfinane, though we are already full to capacity there, and the horse shelter in Mountshannon has 85”.She explained that LAW could only intervene if the animal was in extremely bad condition.Inspector co-ordinator of the LSPCA, Geraldine Nardone, said that there was no funding for a full- time inspector.“There is an inspector working two days a week.“We try to build up enough calls for her to work those days. It is not an emergency service and she is not on-call”.Ms. Nardone said that to contact the inspector concerned, individuals would need to call the office or leave a message outside office hours.“The gardaí are the only ones who can deal with an emergency, and we have no power to seize animals”.

DiBella & Company begin challenge to right the Good Ship Leaf

first_imgMario DiBella could not idly stand by to watch the Good Ship Leaf, now taking on water in Biblical-like form, sink like a rock.So the former Leaf coach decided to step forward when Leaf brass decided to find a new coaching staff for the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League franchise.“I felt I had an obligation being an alumni to help right the ship,” DiBella said Tuesday after getting the players back for the first practice since the Christmas break.Now DiBella, and assistant coaches Sean Dooley and Isaac Macleod, will attempt to begin the healing process when the Nelson Leafs face Murdoch Division leading Beaver Valley Nitehawks in a home-and-home series beginning Wednesday in Fruitvale.“We tried to just focus on bringing a positive attitude . . . there was a lot of negativity on this team for whatever reason,” DiBella said when asked about his first order of business.“We want to simply return to making it fun again for the players and looking to better the results (Leafs) we’re getting.”DiBella, with years of coaching experience, has been busy since taking over the head coaching position from Dave McLellan, who resigned his post prior to the Leafs final game before the holiday break.The Leafs executive at the same time also parted ways with assistant coach Greg Andrusak.After assembling the coaching staff, that includes two grads from the Leaf program in Dooley and Macleod, DiBella spent the holidays speaking to every player on the team.“I told them this was a new season and we wanted to push hard for the rest of the regular season and playoffs,” DiBella said. “I think this is a better team than what they’ve shown in most of those games,” DiBella added. “So we’re looking to have a great run from here and play the role of spoilers come playoffs.”DiBella & Company has little left in the arsenal in regards to finding new players. The former coaching staff burned through player cards faster than a hot knife through butter, leaving the Leafs with only two cards available to improve the club by the way of trades or Junior A cuts.So what’s the current coach going to do before January 10-roster deadline?“We’re definitely going to do something,” DiBella said, adding the first priority is to better the club.“We’re short on the forward line but as it stands, we’re going to find the best players regardless of position.”Nelson, 14-19-0-0-1, trails division leading Beaver Valley — the Hawks already have clinched a playoff spot — by 22 points in the Murdoch standings.Nelson sent center Nick Novin to the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League during the holidays.Novin had been released by the current regime.The Leafs practiced again Tuesday before heading to Fruitvale Wednesday.The teams conclude the home-and-home set Thursday afternoon in the annual New Year’s Eve clash at the NDCC Arena.Game time is 2:30 p.m.That’s when hockey fans will see if the coaching shake-up before Christmas makes a difference to the Green and White.last_img read more

Irreducible Complexity: Can It Be Explained Away?

first_imgWhen Sharon Begley, writing in the Wall Street Journal Feb. 13, criticized the intelligent design movement (see reprint on Access Research Network), Michael Behe answered with a pointed reply five days later.  Begley particularly singled out the concept of “irreducible complexity.”  Behe’s reply, defending the validity of irreducible complexity (a term he coined in his 1996 book Darwin’s Black Box as evidence for intelligent design), can be read on the Discovery Institute website.    Another article on intelligent design was printed on  In it, Ronald Numbers, a historian of the controversy over Darwinism, thinks that inroads of intelligent design into the classroom might be a good thing, but doubts the scientific societies will ever accept it, because it would involve a major change in the way science is done: “The intelligent design people are saying that if the goal of science is to discover the truth, why should scientists, a priori, reject the theory of intelligent design?”Charlie Darwin said a fair evaluation of any question can only be made when both sides are heard.  Strange that many of his disciples don’t want you to hear the opposition.  They think their sound bites tell you all you need to know about any controversy surrounding their idol.  Numbers is an apostate Christian who accepts many of the Darwinian myths, but thankfully he seems to not be as viciously dogmatic as the rest of the Darwin Party against intelligent design.  It is notable that printed this partially open-minded article.  Too bad they didn’t allow a qualified ID spokesman to make the case.(Visited 11 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Comedy Podcasts Revitalize the Platform

first_img5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout Tags:#art#Podcasts#web curt hopkins 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… Related Posts center_img 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App Social media’s like punk rock, it knocks down walls for all, and that’s good. But it frees up as much, or more, rubbish as it does material of quality. Nevertheless, some people, usually those with a love-hate relationship with radio, were very enthusiastic lo these many years ago, about the platform that podcasting provided. That enthusiasm has waned in recent times. (Though not for everyone.) Lately, comedy seems to be revitalizing it. Comedy podcasts run the length of the field, from one-man ruminations to frantic bit-factories to interview shows. Some are free, some cost, and many offer a combination of the two options. Below the fold, I offer a far-from-inclusive introduction to different types of comedy podcasts and have tried to include a few that are acknowledged to be influential.The Ricky Gervais Show. Gervais was an innovator, putting comedy podcasting on the map in 2005, under the auspices of the Guardian. Over the next two years, Gervais released about three dozen podcasts, which went to iTunes for a fee. It is said to be the most downloaded podcast ever. As to the content, I’ve always found Gervais’s comedy to be pub rock posing as punk and the genius mostly in the marketing. I’m clearly in the minority. What the Fuck? Comedian Marc Maron’s podcast has gained huge momentum over the last year and for good reason as far as I’m concerned. Wide in scope, Maron combines introductory monologues of mind-bending self-absorption with interviews, on-site reporting (Creation Museum, anyone?) and live shows. Sometimes the interviews are super funny. Tom Lennon of The State and Reno 911 and Bob Saget of Full House, America’s Funniest Home Videos and How I Met Your Mother almost bent space-time they were so funny. Sometimes, like his interview with the late Mike DeStefano, they’re touching and at other times, like Judd Apatow and Robin Williams, they’re extremely interesting, winkling out details you’d never heard elsewhere. Two interviews were profoundly squirm-worthy: Gallagher (who walked out) and Carlos Mencia (who required two interview for Maron to dislodge him from his talking points.) Few journalists could match Maron’s interviewing technique, neither for quality nor for the risks they take. Comedy Death Ray Radio. CDR Radio grew out of Comedy Death Ray, a weekly Los Angeles-based comedy show that began in 2002 and has been credited in part for creating what is now known as “alternative comedy.” One of CDR’s co-creators, Mr. Show writer Scott Aukerman, is the host. The strong position the show has given the podcast in the world of comedy and comedy fans has given it a lot of reach. Wise guest choices (Paul Tompkins, Andy Richter, Nick Kroll, Reggie Watts, Sarah Silverman, Russell Brand and Tig Notaro) have kept its momentum up. Walking the Room. Comedians Greg Behrendt (best known for “He’s Just Not That Into You” and “telling jokes in front of people”) and Dave Anthony (he’s this one guy) co-host a slop-bucket of a podcast, sloshing with unspeakable filth, studded with neologisms and streaked with tittering. Recent episodes include “Old Yeller Hamster and Fish Cliffhanger,” “Blood Toilet and the Little Big Dollhouse Explanation” and the vacuum-inducing “Blood Face Nap Man and Cracky the Bike Thief.” Sometimes the show’s very funny, sometimes a bit insidery, but always a performance and (so far) free as the wind.Other comedy podcasts of noteJimmy Pardo’s Never Not FunnyPaul F. Tompkins’s Pod F.

Nuggets From the 2015 Westford Symposium

first_img Start Free Trial Already a member? Log in Building science experts, architects, engineers, and builders from across the U.S., Canada, and Europe gathered in early August in Westford, Massachusetts, for the 19th annual Westford Building Science Symposium, a conference sometimes known as “Summer Camp.”Over three lively days filled with education, networking, and drinking, experts gave ten presentations on a variety of building science topics. You read it here first GBA readers who attended the conference had a sense of déjà vu at three of the presentations, since the talks covered topics that GBA has reported on in depth: Ventilating high-rise apartment buildings Lorne Ricketts, a building science engineer at RDH Building Engineering in Vancouver, British Columbia, gave a presentation on research into ventilation systems in a high-rise multifamily building. (Ricketts and his co-author, John Straube, also reported their findings in a paper titled “Corridor Pressurization System Performance in Multi-Unit Residential Buildings.”)For multifamily buildings, mechanical engineers often specify a type of supply ventilation system called a “corridor pressurization” (or “pressurized corridor”) system.Ricketts explained, “A pressurized corridor ventilation system is designed to provide ventilation to the entire building.” This type of ventilation system includes several components:An illustration of a corridor pressurization system is shown in Image #4, below.The engineers who design these supply ventilation systems make several assumptions. The two most important of these assumptions are (a) that the air introduced by the roof-mounted fan is delivered to the common corridors, and (b) that the pressurized corridors deliver fresh air to each apartment. Both assumptions are probably wrong.It turns out that this is a faith-based ventilation system. The designers’ faith is misplaced. Let’s make some measurements While corridor pressurization systems are fairly common, few researchers have measured the airflows… This article is only available to GBA Prime Memberscenter_img Sign up for a free trial and get instant access to this article as well as GBA’s complete library of premium articles and construction details.last_img read more

Salaam Cricket 2018: Younis Khan wants regular cricket between India and Pakistan

first_imgFormer Pakistan batsman Younis Khan batted for regular and organised cricket between India and Pakistan and believed that would also reduce the pressure on the players of both sides when they face each other for matches.Younis also said the age of social media has also contributed to the pressure players are under because they know exactly what is being talked about by the public and the media.”India-Pakistan series should be regular and organised, not like how it happens at the moment. These days players have more pressure because of the rarity of the occasion. We all want India to come to Pakistan and play. In 2004, India came to play and you guys were there and you all got a warm welcome. Everyone wants India-Pakistan cricket to be played in a better manner so that the pressure also reduces,” Younis said at Salaam Cricket 2018.”Players have more pressure now because on social media, this is all that is talked about. Players are also humans, it’s not like they can overlook everything in the media. Even if the players decide not to see news, their relatives will tell them. Back in time that didn’t happen. Conditions, pitches, umpiring and structure has improved but now the cameras have increased and there’s nothing hidden so that increases pressure.”Mohammad Azharuddin also felt that players receive a lot more flak when it comes to an India-Pakistan match and the reactions are extremely extreme when it comes to this match.”India-Pakistan cricket always has pressure, nowadays it’s more because press and TV also follow more now. Players receive a lot of flak now, either public don’t want their teams to lose. During Kargil war also we played in Manchester and I was told that you won against Pakistan, felt like we won the World Cup. But like I said, we can keep talking but whatever the diplomats decide will make a difference. Both players are treated well in either countries. I ate in Pakistan but also ran as much and trained. During Sunny bhai’s time the batting and fielding fitness was different. I feel if you don’t play Pakistan then don’t play anywhere. I don’t agree with this choice policy,” Azhar said.advertisement”Pakistan should make a move I feel. Imran bhai has talked positively but they will have to come ahead first and it’s between countries, so I would not want to say much.”YOUNIS-AZHAR DESCRIBE HOW PLAYERS FROM EITHER COUNTRIES HELPED THEMYounis: My first tour against India in Sharjah, since then I have been following Azharuddin. We couldn’t play much after that but I have learnt a lot from him and even during my captaincy, I tried to learn from him. Two years ago, when I was struggling, Azhar bhai gave me an advice and that helped me score 200 against England in my last Test.I got a lot of criticism by the end of my career but Azhar bhai called me and told me that batsmen also use the crease and he asked me to try in the nets. He did not force me into it but asked me to try and I did and it helped me. Younis Khan and Mohammad Azharuddin discussed how seniors players have helped their game. (India Today Photo)Azharuddin, I followed since his debut. Sunil Gavaskar, everyone used to say there was a charm in his batting and we were told to watch them. Even Kapil Dev, I used to try bowling like him, we tried to play onside like Azharuddin. Hearing radio commentary we used to create images and tried to learn. If you wish something, you get it and we have got that. Nowadays, everything is out there, so much analysis is available, there is more pressure but things have become easy.Azhar: I told him [Younis] whatever I had learnt in England and I think he implemented it.In 1989, I was dropped from the first Test but there were no regrets because I was not batting very well. Zaheer [Abbas] bhai came to me in the nets and adviced me to change my grip. It hurt me initially but then I thought I had tried everything so I should try this too. After that my game changed completely, I used to play well onside but then I began playing well offside too.INDIA, PAKISTAN CHANCES IN ASIA CUP 2018Azhar: I haven’t seen the new Pakistan players but everyone is saying they are very good but I can’t comment. I feel India is a settled team, they didn’t play very well in England but they are in touch and so I feel we have the edge. I would want to see India-Pakistan final but we cannot write off Bangladesh.advertisementVirat Kohli is the No.1 player so obviously the team will miss him but like I said, even other teams will miss seeing him. If he is injured like people are saying then we should not talk much about him as he would not want to aggravate the injury. I think he would have played had he been fit.Main difference in Champions Trophy was Amir’s bowling. Pakistan have always had fast bowlers and if the team plays on their potential then they can beat anyone. The advantage they have is the fact that they have been playing here. But I feel the Indian team is also good.Younis: Team India will miss Virat Kohli’s form and his aggressive captaincy and they would not want to go from here without doing well considering also how they did in England but you learn from these situations. Pakistan always missed an all-rounder and now we have that.But we all know this is a nerves match however the teams may be. The matches are always competitive. I have seen in my career that as a young team we went to India and drew Test series 1-1 and won ODIs 5-2 even though India had players like Sachin, Sehwag, Dravid and Ganguly and bowlers like Kumble, Harbhajan.DHONI’S DEBUT SERIES VS PAKISTANYounis: The way Dhoni scored 148, it was amazing. Indian cricket changed after that. Mahi became captain and took the Indian team to the top. In such series, players are broken, even Sourav Ganguly did but a lot of players rise also like I also rose from there, just like Dhoni.In those days the comical thing was we used to go to India and won and India used to come to Pakistan and win and our families would not talk properly to us. It got really tough and I guess the same happened with Indian team.Whenever Sehwag would come to bat, there will be massive runs always. His 300 in Multan, we all saw. He always used to perform against Pakistan. Same with me, I always used to play against India.INDIA’S CHANCES AT ASIA CUPAzhar: Kuldeep can surely be a trump card because he’s a chinaman and Pakistan haven’t played many chinaman. Like Younis and Misbah said the wickets are also going to be tough so he can be important.Rohit Sharma has a chance to play Test matches again because the way India have played in England, many won’t be selected for Australia.WHY PAKISTAN HAVE HAD SUCCESS IN ENGLAND AND INDIA HAVE NOTYounis: We have always had leg-spinners whenever we go to England and they have dominated so they are little things that make a difference.For batsmen, like I took advice from Azhar bhai, there are so many Indian legends and they should learn from them and even if they don’t say themselves, the players should go themselves. The learning should not stop. I went to Rahul Dravid in 2004 Champions Trophy in Birmingham and I asked for 5 minutes but Dravid himself came to me and I was a junior player. I asked him a few questions and I took them ahead and it changed my cricket. If they take advice properly, they will never struggle in England.advertisementAzhar: I think players feel they know everything, it becomes about ego I feel. Sunny bhai won’t ever go to anyone, he’s the best player and senior so it’s very sad that these players don’t go to him. You can learn from bowlers like Muralitharan also because he can tell how to counter as a batsmen. If players feel they are the best then they can’t be helped but there is no harm in approaching a legend. You should approach to learn, legends will approach very often.last_img read more

Klopp must start winning trophies – Souness

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Klopp will be hoping to go close in the challenge for European glory, but has been left in no doubt that tangible success must be achieved soon if he is to keep guiding the club forward.Reds legend Souness told Sky Sports, while offering transfer advice: “They have to start winning trophies as that is what you are judged on ultimately and that is the only thing that is missing.”You have to say that whoever is responsible for the players coming in there have done really well.”There are some fabulous players and Naby Keita is coming in the summer [from RB Leipzig] and he might just give them that extra bit of quality that I think they need in midfield.”I think they need someone in midfield who sees a different picture. The three that they have got in there today [Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Georginio Wijnaldum] – and I include Emre Can in that – are all very good players, all very workmanlike and do a great job for the cause.”But none of them have got that real magic and maybe he [Keita] will give them that.”And a goalkeeper and a Kevin De Bruyne and a David Silva.”Souness, who managed Liverpool to FA Cup glory in 1992 added: “I think they are certainly on the right road, they just need to win a trophy.”And if you win one, then it makes it so much easier going forward because you start to believe in yourself.”Liverpool are set to face Premier League rivals Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals, with the first leg of that contest set to be staged at Anfield on Wednesday.
