To the surprise of tourists, one of Australia’s seacoast rock formations called the “Twelve Apostles” collapsed into a pile of rubble before their eyes, reported CNN, ABC and other news sources. The fall of the 150-foot high sedimentary formation was caught in before-and-after snapshots by a teenager. Even though standard geology claims the rocks began to form 20 million years ago (see the BBC News story), the remains will probably be washed away by the waves within weeks. Answers in Genesis took this event, and others like it, as evidence that such formations could not be nearly as old as claimed.Let the evidence speak for itself. Anyone infer millions of years with this kind of eyewitness testimony? Here is a candidate for Stupid Evolution Quote of the Week from a tourist, reported by News.com.au: “It’s pretty unbelievable; it’s history in the making today… It won’t be the same sort of photo any more, but it is evolution.” Darwinism wouldn’t generate much of an edifice with this kind of process. If the tourist meant that Darwinism itself is crumbling in a similarly rapid manner, well, then the remark would be rather astute.(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest As harvest is completed across the Eastern Corn Belt, seed companies, universities, and growers will have the chance to compile and analyze data from yield testing. One of the most important decisions a farmer will face all year is deciding what variety to plant and in which field to plant it. To ensure that the best possible decision is made next spring, it is important to spend some time looking at yield data. While reviewing data is critical, knowing how to determine whether it is accurate and useful is equally important. Below are some tips for using data to make sound planting decisions next spring.Look for Replicated DataDon’t rely on yield results from one strip plot on a farm or from a single plot location. Look for data from randomized tests that are repeated multiple times and across multiple locations. Replications in testing increase the reliability of the data and help to remove variables that can skew results.For strip plot data, was a “tester” used?Strip plots planted on farms can cover large areas of a field. In many fields in the Eastern Corn Belt there are several soil types. If a plot crosses several soil types how can you be sure it is accurate? By planting a “tester” variety at regular intervals within the plot, you can calculate adjusted yields based on the variability of the tester yield across the plot. The use of a tester minimizes the effect soil type variability has on the plot results to ensure more accurate data.Look for consistencyAccording to Bob Nielsen, Purdue Extension Agronomist, “Documented consistency in yield performance is still the key to success in selecting hybrids that will perform well in your farming operation.” When choosing a variety based on plot data, it is important to look for consistent performance—across several plot locations and between multiple years. Choose varieties that consistently performed well in 2014 and 2015, in multiple locations, and different growing conditions.Statistical SignificanceOn published data look for foot notes that indicate the least statistically significant yield difference, or LSD. In many plots, the performance of the top 5 or 10 varieties may not be statistically different. Although there are small differences in yield, statistical analysis of the data indicates that all varieties within the LSD have an equal chance of winning the plot.While plot data can be very useful in making decisions, some plot data is significantly more accurate and reliable. The key to getting the most out of yield data is having the ability to sort through the large amounts of information to identify the data that most accurately and reliably represents varietal performance.

In 2007, the Singer Laren Museum in the Netherlands, where The Thinker resided, was burglarized. The meatheads who broke in did so not to steal the art, but to steal the metal. They made off with seven sculptures and started to try to chop them up to sell for scrap. Six of the sculptures were utterly destroyed but a badly damaged Thinker was recovered. Quite aside from its artistic merit, it is worth, on the open market, up to $10 million. So the Singer Laren needed to figure out how to deal with the butchered figure. iMaterialise had an idea. They did a CT scan of the damaged figure. Then they scanned the original mold retained by the Musee Rodin in Paris. They printed out a full-sized copy from the original on their Mammoth 3D printer. The Mammoth uses a photopolymer resin to form the product in sections about six feet in length. The CT scans are imported and rendered using Materialise’s software. Lasers guide the shape, laying down thin sheets until they build up into the figure. A modeler finishes, adding texture and color.The conservators at the Singer Laren have used that and the scans of the original to re-fabricate and lay in the missing and damaged parts of the statue. The remade Thinker is on display at an exhibit at the Singer Laren called The Thinker Thinks Again through May.

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Electoral Officer Shaleen Kabra on Saturday announced the dates of elections to the urban local bodies in the State despite a boycott threat by the regional parties. The National Conference and the Peoples Democratic Party described the decision as “unfortunate”.“The municipal polls will be conducted in four phases on October 8, 10, 13, 16,” Mr. Kabra said.There urban local bodies have remained without members due to repeated deferment of [elections], owing to growing militancy and rising civilian casualties in the past few years. These polls will be followed by the panchayat polls that will begin in November,” he said.“The elections to two municipal corporations, three municipal councils and 72 municipal committees in the State shall be held from October 8 to 16. The last elections to the municipal bodies were held in 2005 and their five-year term expired in 2010.”He said the EVMs would be used for the elections. “Of 1,145 wards, 90 wards have been reserved for the Scheduled Castes and 38 wards have been reserved for the Scheduled Tribes, which includes 31 and 13 wards reserved for SC and ST women. Around 322 wards have been reserved for women belonging to the open category,” he said.Kashmiri migrants will be allowed to vote through postal ballot. Around 17 lakh voters will particiapte in these polls.Protests continueThe decision to hold these polls comes despite the NC and the PDP announcing to stay away from the urban local bodies and panchayat polls in J&K, asking the Centre to clear its stand on Article 35A, which defines State Subject laws, before the Supreme Court.PDP spokesman Rafi Mir told The Hindu: “It’s an unfortunate decision. We were expecting that Governor Satya Pal Malik will hold an all-party meeting. It seems the decision was taken without taking public or political parties’ opinion on board. We stand by our decision to stay away from these polls.”NC general secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar said these polls would have no credibility. “Unfortunately, no one was taken into confidence while announcing these polls. Such polls will serve no purpose and will only damage the idea of democracy. Any election is held to allow parties and people to participate. We saw three militants being killed in Jammu on Friday and five people, including a civilian, being killed on Saturday. In such an atmosphere, what message is the Centre giving by holding these elections,” Mr. Sagar asked.
Kolkata, Mar 7 (PTI) Two-wheeler maker Bajaj Auto is looking to sell around 50,000 units of 150CC V bikes in the country and will decide on extending the brand to other segments after 12-18 months.”This is the sixth brand from our stable. We expect to sell 50,000 units of 150CC commuter segment V brand motorcycles in the next 12-18 months using metal from the dismantled INS Vikrant,” Bajaj VP Marketing (motorcycle) Sumeet Narang said here today. He said that company was open to evaluate on whether to extend V brand to other bike categories, but that would depend on acceptance level and to which category of consumers.”The brand will continue,” Narang said when asked what after the Vikrant metal gets exhausted. The official added that currently the 150CC segment ruled the sport segment. Speaking about the sluggish market scenario, he said despite the motorcycle market remaining subdued, the three launches last year were successful to beat the market trend.”We have launched a new model of CT-100B in January this year which costs about Rs 31,000 ex-showroom Delhi as the scope for rural penetration still remained high. Its nationwide launch is being gradually done. The CT-100 was launched last year at Rs 35,000, when industry price was hovering at Rs 40,000,” he said. He further said the rural demand is expected to grow with the government giving impetus to the segment in the budget.Meanwhile, for booking done between March 10-20, the company would attempt to deliver the bikes on March 23, the Martyrs day.
