Cricket News Diwali Special: Team India’s top 3 unforgettable moments during Diwali Week

first_imgNew Delhi: Diwali has always lightened up the streets of India, and the Indian Cricket Team has always made sure that the entire nation celebrates the ‘festival of lights’ with the best of emotions after watching their beloved team play. Diwali and Indian cricket have had held a great bond together, with memorable wins and records always boosting up the emotions of the cricketing fraternity to enjoy the special festival with a great boost.With Diwali just a day away, let us remember some special moments when the Men in Blue light up a billion hearts with their unforgettable performances:1. India vs Australia, Reliance World Cup, 1987The 15th match of the Reliance World Cup 1987 was a memorable affair for the Men in Blue. It was a grand collision of two teams – Australia vs India.The Aussies won the toss and elected to bowl first. India had a great start with Navjot Singh Sidhu, Mohammad Azharuddin, Sunil Gavaskar and Dilip Vengsarkar scoring half-centuries and taking India to a score of 289. Mind you, 289 at that time was a mountain of a score.In reply, Australia at one stage were 100 for 1. But the spin duo of Maninder Singh and Ravi Shastri were at the helm of slowing down the run rate of the dominant Aussies. Maninder Singh was behind the important dismissals of Geoff Marsh, Allan Border and Dean Jones, while Shastri sent the dangerous David Boon packing.An injury to Chetan Sharma made skipper Kapil Dev give Azharuddin the bowl and he dismantled the Aussie tails by dismissing 3 wickets.India won the match by 56 runs, and the Diwali was a special one once again for the Indian cricket fans.2. India vs Sri Lanka, Jaipur, October 2005This clash between the Asian giants was the third match of the series, and India was coming to this game with blooming confidence after having won the first two matches.Sri Lanka had a go first and heroics from Kumar Sangakkara (138) and Mahela Jayawardene (71) had taken them to 298 for 4 in 50 overs.In reply, India lost Sachin Tendulkar early and to everyone’s surprise, an inexperienced Mahendra Singh Dhoni walked out at No. 3 ahead of Rahul Dravid. And what followed was total destruction by the Jharkhand lad. His unforgettable knock of 183 not out in just 145 delivers with 15 fours and 10 sixes helped India chase the target with 23 balls to spare. And the 2005 Diwali turned out to be a historic one.3. India vs South Africa, Hero Cup semi-final, Kolkata 1993India was bundled out for 195 with skipper Azharuddin scoring 90 alongside Pravin Amre hitting a good 48. With 195 on board, India needed a miracle against the mighty South Africans.The miracle was none other than three run outs and the match went down the wire. With 13 needed in 2 overs, the South Africans scored 7 runs in the 49th over, however, lost David Richardson went back to the pavilion after a run-out.South Africa needed 6 in the last over with 2 wickets in hand, and Kapil Dev was hesitant to bowl the last over. A young Sachin Tendulkar took the ball from Azhar to bowl the last over. After a single off the first delivery, Allan Donald came to face Tendulkar, but a bowling masterclass from the Master Blaster turned the second, third and fourth delivery into dots. Again after a single, McMillan failed to score 4 off the last ball and India won the game by 3 runs.The 1993 Diwali will forever be memorable due to Sachin’s heroics with the ball.

The Lasting Lenape Legacy on the Navesink

first_imgClaire Garland, left, shows Red Bank Public Library children’s librarian Sira Williams a Lenape “knee wrap,” made of leather and deer knuckles. These wraps were used in Native American dance ceremonies and were prized for their musical sounds.By Rick Geffken |Hundreds of years before the Oyster Point Hotel and Marina was built on the banks of the Navesink, a band of Lenape feasted on those succulent shellfish and left behind a huge 30 ft. wide by 15 ft. high midden of oyster shells. These piles of shells were found all along the Bayshore and helped archaeologists determine much about how our Native American predecessors lived on our Two River estuaries, according to Claire Garland.Garland, the director of the Sand Hill Indian Historical Association, gave an informative talk, “500 Years on the Navesink” at the Eisner Memorial Red Bank Public Library on Saturday, August 11th. She brought along her sizable collection of artifacts from her Native-American ancestry – leather shirts and pants, a feathered fan, gourd rattles, and pictures of her Revey family ancestors, whom she dates to 1780. Their heritage lingers in a section of Tinton Falls still called Reveytown, along and around Shafto Road in that borough. It was named for Thomas Revey during the 19th century.Among the Lenape and Cherokee artifacts Claire Garland dis- played were a leather vest, moccasins, a peace pipe and other clothing adornments. Photo by Rick GeffkenSand Hill in Neptune was the location of one of her ancestor’s homes. The area near today’s West Bangs Avenue is occasionally used for family reunions, including one with over 75 people just a few weeks ago.“History didn’t begin here with Columbus in 1492,” Garland told the attentive audience of adults and children. “European fishing boat crews in the 13th century were trading with natives along the coast down through Massachusetts.” Indians, as they were wrongly described by Columbus and other explorers, even further south were aware of these strange looking men sailing along their coastal waters.Garland’s ancestry is a mix of native Lenape, Cherokee (who had moved from Georgia to New Jersey), and colonial Dutch. The Revey family included many artisans who created traditional clothing and other useful articles to help support themselves. Lenape influence on European culture after first contacts was substantial in surprising ways. “When the European started arriving in the New World, they dressed in shorty-sorts and high stockings,” noted Garland. “They quickly learned to wear leather pants like the Indians to prevent briars from cutting their legs.”Claire Garland, director of the Sand Hill Indian Historical Association, spoke about her Native-American heritage before an audience at the Eisner Memorial Red Bank Public Library Saturday, Aug. 11. Photo by Rick GeffkenPlace names, or “Indian talk” as Garland called it, that we take for granted now were originally Lenape designations – Wanamassa, Mantoloking, Manalapan, Manasquan, Wickatunk, and yes, even Navesink and Rumson. The last two derived from variations of the name of the Navesinck band of Lenape and from the peninsula they referred to as Narumsunk.Garland pointed out that the late Paul Boyd (Atlantic Highlands, From Lenape Camps to Bayside Town) believed that the shell middens he found about every eight miles along the shoreline indicated Indian villages about a day’s walk from each other. Until Europeans appeared, Native Americans believed in communal rights to property with everyone share in the land’s riches. When the Indians “signed” deeds (mostly by making a mark like an X), they thought of them like leases. The European concept of hard rights to property essentially let the Europeans steal land. The New Jersey State Archives has preserved over 800 of these deeds.An interesting aspect to Garland’s talk was her assertion that during the last Ice Age, the water captured as ice at the north pole reduced the Atlantic Ocean to the extent that our coastline was a further 80 miles out from today’s. She claimed that Native Americans built villages and houses on this extended shelf, though few remains of them have ever been found.Other revelations from Garland included that the Turtle Clan of the Lenape occupied most of the middle section of New Jersey in our area. “Lenape people hunted seals, whales, porpoises. They supplemented their diets with fruit like apples, quince, and beach plums. Europeans were in awe of the abundance in the local estuaries here. They sent letters back home encouraging more settlers to come to the New World where they would find ‘a whole cellar of food.’”Garland also mentioned, seemingly without rancor, that “The County of Monmouth took 105 acres of my family’s property at Reveytown to construct the Reclamation Center along Shafto Road.” One wonders if the pungent odor in the area is something of a Lenape revenge.For more about Garland’s Revey and Sand Hill Indian ancestry, see www.SandHillIndianHistory.org.last_img read more

Natural Selection? No – Sheer Dumb Luck

first_imgCornell University agrees: Darwin’s theory reduces to the Stuff Happens Law.How long has natural selection been presented as a directional process that leads inevitably upward to greater fitness? Charles Darwin himself started that meme, personifying natural selection as some kind of goddess that ensured upward progress:It may be said that natural selection is daily and hourly scrutinising, throughout the world, every variation, even the slightest; rejecting that which is bad, preserving and adding up all that is good; silently and insensibly working, whenever and wherever opportunity offers, at the improvement of each organic being in relation to its organic and in organic conditions of life. We see nothing of these slow changes in progress, until the hand of time has marked the long lapse of ages, and then so imperfect is our view into long-past geological ages, that we only see that the forms of life are now different from what they formerly were. (Origin of Species, 1866, p. 84).It “may be said” thus, but it would be wrong! According to the Cornell Chronicle of Cornell University (a hotbed of evolution and materialism), “It’s mostly luck, not pluck, that determines lifetime reproductive success.” Stephen Ellner and Robin Snyder are about to upset a lot of neo-Darwinian colleagues with their depressing view of natural selection:Ecologists have shown that populations contain a variety of subtypes within a species, with some individuals having superior traits that increase their likelihood of growing tallest or reproducing the most. But using mathematical modeling, along with the two empirical studies, Ellner and Snyder propose that although individuals can differ in ways that affect their expected reproductive success or growth potential, actual outcomes are wide-ranging enough that luck has to be the main driver.Luck – randomness – if that is the “main driver” of reproductive success (the “measure” of fitness, in the usual tautological form of natural selection that equates fitness with survival), then Darwin had no theory better than Sheer Dumb Luck. And in science, sheer dumb luck is no explanation at all. It’s like throwing up your hands and saying, “Stuff happens” or “Que sera, sera.” It doesn’t take a scientist to come up with that “law” of nature; any uneducated person can figure that out. That’s why we often equate natural selection to the Stuff Happens Law (see “Time to ditch natural selection? 3 October 2015). Actually, Stuff Happens is an anti-law. It is the antithesis of scientific explanation. DSo do the fittest survive and reproduce best, as Darwin taught? No, quips Ellner with a wry grin: “It’s mostly a matter of not dying.”In short, lifetime reproductive success is in great measure a product of luck and not superior traits.And yet the opposite view is often presented to the public. For instance, at the FAQ page of “Understanding Evolution” presented by PBS, the following big lie about natural selection is presented forcefully and dogmatically:Evolution is not a random process. The genetic variation on which natural selection acts may occur randomly, but natural selection itself is not random at all. The survival and reproductive success of an individual is directly related to the ways its inherited traits function in the context of its local environment. Whether or not an individual survives and reproduces depends on whether it has genes that produce traits that are well adapted to its environment.Not true, say Snyder and Ellner. They give details of their view of natural selection in The American Naturalist: “Pluck or Luck: Does Trait Variation or Chance Drive Variation in Lifetime Reproductive Success?” Their answer is: primarily, luck. This would shock all the Victorian and 20th-century scientists who expected Darwin’s mechanism of natural selection to drive progress from bacteria to man.“Not dying” sounds pretty simplistic, but it gets to the heart of the pair’s research. In short, lifetime reproductive success (LRS) is in great measure a product of luck and not superior traits.All the warfare and criminal activity that occurred since Darwinism took hold, including genocide and eugenics, was based on the notion that evolutionary progress is a law of nature. Evolution weeds out the unfit and supports the strong. Since human beings have evolved conscious minds, they now had the ability to control their own evolution. The most radical of the Darwinians even redefined morality in terms of fitness, which they assumed was strength, virility, whiteness, intelligence or other phony measures of evolutionary superiority. The horrors that resulted are incalculable.Now, if Ellner and Snyder are correct about their view of natural selection, all that carnage was for nought. Nature does not support the strong. It supports the lucky. Their 2016 essay in The American Naturalist, “We Happy Few: Using Structured Population Models to Identify the Decisive Events in the Lives of Exceptional Individuals,” won “best paper” for 2016 by the Society of American Naturalists.Their 2016 work tried to explain what made the difference in the “happy few” from the plant and animal world who grew tallest or had the most reproductive success. One of their key findings: “We find that good fortune (e.g., rapid growth) when small and young matters much more than good fortune when older and larger,” they wrote. “Becoming lucky is primarily a matter of surviving while others die.”Ellner and Snyder expanded on that notion – of having the good fortune to not die – in this latest work. They used theoretical modeling, along with two published case studies… to make the case that while trait variation can influence the fate of a population, the fates of individuals are often determined by “dumb luck.”The authors still believe that being “above average” is helpful, but the main driver of reproductive success is dumb luck. But can a distinction be made between individuals and populations? The fate of a population is the aggregate fate of its individuals. If individual fate is determined by dumb luck, then so is the fate of the population. Stuff happens.Update 3/26/18: Another study from Lund University concurs that survival is primarily a matter of luck, not fitness. When they say “Chance is a factor in the survival of species,” they compare it to conservation efforts. They say nothing about “survival of the fittest.” Conservation efforts sometimes help, but species often go extinct anyway. Their paper in The American Naturalist offers no hope to Darwin’s theory, which presumed that those with the highest fitness (whatever that is) would survive. But in their case study of damselflies in competition, “Stochastic and deterministic processes therefore jointly shape coexistence,” they say—not fitness. The only “deterministic” process they mention is “negative frequency dependence” by which they mean the “rare species advantage” explained in the press release as, “the few remaining individuals in the rare species gain some minority advantages, such as reduced competition or aggression from other individuals.” That’s not about fitness either, but luck. Would the Darwin-loving warriors of World War II had gone confidently out to battle if they had been told that survival was not a matter of superior intelligence or might, but only about dumb luck?So natural selection is not about superiority, but chance. My, what would Hitler think! He should have listened to Solomon: “Again I saw that under the sun the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to the intelligent, nor favor to those with knowledge, but time and chance happen to them all” (Ecclesiastes 9:11). That verse might have stopped him from his vain quest to create a master race, but unless he read to the end of the book, he would still be an evil man. The only way to start on a right path is to first “Remember your Creator in the days of your youth” (12:1), and take Solomon’s last words to heart: The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil. (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14)If Stuff Happens were the only law of the universe, we would all become fatalists. But there is a higher law—the law of God—that promises ultimate success to those who obey Him, even if bad stuff happens to good people in this life.(Visited 909 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, May 15, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We have some good news this morning, as we are trending our 10 day outlook a little drier. We should see some opportunity for field work developing in the days ahead. Partly sunny and mild conditions today, with temps a few degrees warmer than yesterday. Tomorrow is also mostly dry, at least through the daytime hours. In the north sun will be followed by clouds, but we stay partly to mostly sunny over the southern half of the state. Rain and thunderstorms move over the state tomorrow night and continue through Friday. Rain totals will be from .25″-1.5″ with 70% coverage. The heavier rain totals will come from thunderstorms. Saturday will start with some morning showers lingering in NE Ohio, but a mix of clouds and sun statewide, while Sunday brings mostly sunny skies with a windy, warm afternoon. Temps will be well above normal. In fact, we could see the warmest batch of temperatures here in almost 8 months. Scattered showers do arrive in Ohio overnight Sunday night, probably after midnight. These linger across the state through Monday, but there is not really much moisture to work with here. Because of that, a few hundredths to .25” is all we are projecting at the moment, with coverage at 70%. A change in our forecast comes next week. We are now leaning toward partly to mostly sunny skies with a dry pattern for the balance of the week, Tuesday through Friday. In fact, we think high pressure can move across northern Ohio through the day Tuesday. Now, models are not in full agreement here. The oft cited GFS model is still trying to bring in significant rains from next Monday night through Tuesday, with totals up to 1.5 in parts NW OH. However, we think the focal point of this moisture and any associated frontal complex next week will be farther west, from IL back through into the plains.  So, we are trending our forecast drier. We will continue to watch that Tuesday period closely, but for now we are taking moisture out. Thursday may have to be watched for the development of a few scattered showers over the eastern third of Ohio, but generally coverage there, if precipitation pops up, will be under 30%. So, at this time we are keeping the forecast dry, and the rest of the state should be at least partly sunny. Friday also finishes sunny and dry. If you are keeping track at home, that puts us at 4 days rain free next week…and with good evaporation, we may see the ground get fit in a number of places. The map at right shows cumulative rainfall potential through next Friday. The extended period has a little more activity returning. Next Saturday, to start the Memorial Day weekend, we have sunshine up north, but clouds increasing in the south. Those clouds bring a chance of showers with rain potential of up to .4” to the southern third of the state. Then for Sunday, we see those showers try and spread statewide. We can see up to .3” with 70% coverage. The on Memorial Day itself, we turn out cloudy to partly sunny with a few scattered showers popping over the southwest OH. This pattern culminates with rain on Tuesday the 28th with totals from .1”-.6” and coverage of 90%. From there we finish the month with partly to mostly sunny skies the 29th through the 31st.last_img read more
