Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Florida (24-3, 11-1) had won 17 straight games and needed a victory to clinch at least a share of the Southeastern Conference’s Eastern Division and the overall league title. They also had won seven straight against the Commodores. But Vanderbilt (18-8, 8-4) has been one of the country’s best against ranked opponents this season. Students poured onto the court at Memorial Gym as the Commodores pulled off their first victory over a top-ranked team since Jan. 13, 1993, when they beat then-No. 1 Kentucky, and their sixth victory over a ranked team this season. Ross Neltner added 15 points for the Commodores. Joakim Noah led Florida with 15, and Corey Brewer and Al Horford each had 13 as the Gators had a season-high 22 turnovers. At No. 3 Wisconsin 75, Penn St. 49: Alando Tucker shook off a slow start and scored 22 points to lead Wisconsin to the win. No. 4 North Carolina 77, at No. 21 Boston College 72: Tyler Hansbrough scored 17 and Ty Lawson had 13 points with seven assists and six rebounds to lead fourth-ranked North Carolina to a victory over No. 21 Boston College. No. 6 Texas A&M 56, at Oklahoma 49: Joseph Jones and Acie Law scored 21 points each and Texas A&M rebounded from its second conference loss to beat Oklahoma. The top-ranked Florida Gators finally fell into a hole they couldn’t dig themselves out of Saturday. Derrick Byars and Shan Foster each scored 24 points, and Vanderbilt snapped the nation’s longest winning streak by upsetting the visiting Gators 83-70.

“This afternoon I’m going to address four things; who is the B.C. LNG Alliance? The future I believe B.C.’s natural gas can provide Asia, the challenges we face in developing the LNG industry, and the opportunities that are there for all of us,” Keane says during his introduction.The B.C. LNG Alliance is a mesh of provincial government officials and multi-billion dollar companies looking to poise themselves as leaders in regional LNG development.“Our mandate is simple: it’s to foster the growth of a safe, environmentally, and socially responsible industry in British Columbia – an LNG industry that is globally competitive and an LNG industry that British Columbians can be proud of,” explains Keane.- Advertisement -Members of the alliance include Kitimat LNG, LNG Canada, Pacific NorthWest LNG, Prince Rupert LNG, Triton LNG, Woodfibre LNG, and most recently Exxon Mobil LNG.“Investments made by our members – and the jobs and spin-offs that they will create – will have a very positive and beneficial effect on communities throughout northern British Columbia, and indeed throughout the province, and throughout Canada.”Enter the role of Asia’s natural gas industry on Canada’s economy – which essentially relies solely on imports.Advertisement Mayor of Taylor Rob Fraser – who is a member of the NEBC Resource Municipalities Coalition – wrapped-up today’s event by illustrating to Keane the collation’s projected goals moving into the future.“We’ll be trying to develop relationships with our neighbours and other industry, as well as the different levels of government, so that they understand the position we’re in, and we can provide them with as much advice as we can coming from a group of like-minded municipalities,” Mayor Fraser concludes.The regions included in the coalition are Fort St. John, Fort Nelson, Pouce Coupe, Taylor, Tumbler Ridge, and Chetwynd. Keane adds, “We’ll then match those up and look at the data gaps, and then figure out how we’re going to fill those data gaps.These gaps include how many people are required to be trained, where the training will take place, and how the training will be administered, according to Keane.Keane also says he has another issue that needs to be addressed by the Premier’s office before the anticipated LNG industry really hits the ground running.“In terms of the fiscal structure, we need to have more clarity and certainty around the LNG tax,” says Keane. “We know what the tax rate is but we don’t know what’s included in the tax.”Keane gives the example of what is and is not considered deducible as a point of interest.Advertisement “When you look at the LNG world, not all of the buyers – whether Chinese, Japanese or Korean – are going to want to put all of their supply or demand eggs in one basket,” Keane goes on to say. “They’ll want to diversify their risk, and I think British Columbia will have a significant portion of that supply base.”Some other major LNG players include Russia, Australia and America.Keane also points to something called “skill delusion” as a challenge facing B.C. “Skill delusion” is a situation in which a country and/or province building an industry have a misconception in regard to the amount of skilled employees available to fill open positions – a situation previously experienced in Australia.“We’re working with the Premier’s LNG Working Group on identifying the skills that are going to be required to build these facilities,” explains Keane. “Once we’ve done that as the industry – which we’re in the process of doing now – we will sit down with the [provincial] government, and the Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Skills training, and they will then look at the data they have available in terms of the skills that are available in British Columbia.”Advertisement
Jermaine Pennant 1 Jermaine Pennant has done a deal to make him the highest paid player in the history of Singapore football.The former Arsenal and Liverpool player has agreed terms with S-League Tampines Rovers following a successful one-week trial period.Speaking to local media, Pennant said: “Everything has been positive since I landed. You can expect some news either later today or tomorrow.”Tampines Rovers general manager Desmund Khusnin confirmed a deal is “very close to being completed”.Pennant, 33, this week, left Wigan at the end of last season and despite the record-breaking deal, will still be taking a 70 per cent pay cut from his £25,000-a-week Championship wages.The former England under-21 international added: “I knew before I flew here I would have to take a big pay cut but you must look at the bigger picture.“Furthermore, there are other things here in Singapore that I value much more than money,” he told TODAY.Pennant also claimed he had rival offers from other countries in Asia, but stated: “The chairman here has a project and I am happy with it. So, sorry to the rest, but I am staying in Singapore.”

Deele College welcomed Jason Black to the school last Friday, where he gave a talk to the senior students about motivation and following dreams.Mr Black, who last year became the first Donegal person to scale the heights of the daunting Mount Everest, talked to students about his epic adventure and how he managed to summit the world’s highest peak.A prominent businessman in Letterkenny, Jason is an ideal role model for students, as he not only runs a successful business empire, incorporating Voodoo nightclub and Black’s Centra, he is also known in sporting circles for his time with Letterkenny Rugby Club. With students currently facing into their own ‘Everest’ with the Leaving Cert looming, it was incredible to listen to Jason talk of his journey and the tough and dangerous days that he faced during his ascent to the top of the world.It was refreshing for students to listen to a talk on motivation from someone of the calibre of Mr Black.He also spoke of his journey through school, which was not always a pleasant experience, while he also spoke to the students of the personal hardships, which he endured in his life and the need to overcome what obstacles are placed before you.But it was his tales of adventure in Asia that really captivated the audience, as he described in detail the gruelling effort it took to reach the peak of Everest, which stands at an astonishing 29,029 feet. Throughout the talk, Jason continuously referred to one motto, which he has lived his life by, and it is a motto that he is eager to pass on to the next generation and that motto is ‘always follow your dreams.’EVEREST HERO JASON HELPS DEELE COLLEGE STUDENTS REACH NEW HEIGHTS was last modified: February 3rd, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:deele collegeJason Blackstudents
Sometimes the letters to the editor are the most interesting parts of a magazine. Read what John T. Durkin says about embryonic stem cell research in response to an April letter by another scientist:In his Letter “Human being redux” (16 April, p. 388),2 M. S. Gazzaniga constructs his defense of human embryonic stem cell research around his difficulty in thinking of a “miniscule ball of cells in a petri dish, so small that it could rest on the head of a pin” as a human being. This rhetoric may mislead the lay public, but scientists should recognize that the size or the developmental stage does not separate the embryo from the human being. The embryo and the adult are different stages in the development of the human being. The embryo possesses more than just “the genetic material for a future human being.” In ways that we do not yet fully understand, the embryo is organized so that it is capable of executing a developmental program and growing into what Gazzaniga will admit is a human being. This capability distinguishes the embryo from a differentiated cell in culture. Gazzaniga suggests that, because an embryo that is not implanted in the uterus of a woman will not be able to execute this program, the embryo has no moral status. I think he has it backwards. The scientist who destroys an embryo to harvest stem cells commits a wrong, for the scientist has denied that embryo the opportunity to grow into an adult. My moral objections to human embryonic stem cell research are not assuaged by severing its connection to reproductive cloning. In my judgment, the developmental events leading from fertilized ovum, to blastula, to embryo, to fetus, to fully formed adult constitute a continuum. It is artificial, and even self-serving, to declare the embryo “not yet human” before some point, and to declare that we may do with that embryo as we will. (Emphasis added in all quotes.)1John T. Durkin, “The Case Against Stem Cell Research” (letter to the editor), Science, Vol 305, Issue 5689, 1402 ,3 September 2004, [DOI: 10.1126/science.305.5689.1402a].2Michael S. Gazzaniga, “Stem Cell Redux,” Science, Vol 304, Issue 5669, 388-389 , 16 April 2004, [DOI: 10.1126/science.304.5669.388c].Never underestimate the power of a well-written, cogently argued letter.

More than a decade after his father Dorjee Khandu ushered in a “dam revolution”, Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu has begun scrapping hydro-power projects for non-performance.The Chief Minister, inaugurating the State’s first community-managed mini hydroelectric project at Dikshi in West Kameng district on September 13, said his government terminated 22 projects worth 3,800 MW while another 46 projects worth 8,000 MW had been served notices.“These projects have not progressed and people have lost confidence in them. The government is reviewing the hydro-power projects periodically and action will be taken against the power developers found non-performing,” Mr. Khandu said.Arunachal Pradesh was among 16 States identified during the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government for an ambitious plan in 2003 to make India produce 50,000 MW or hydroelectricity by 2017. This north-eastern State bordering China’s Tibet, accounting for the bulk of the proposed installed capacity was the first off the blocks for the hydro-power “gold rush”.Agreement spreeA State hydro-power policy drawn up in 2007 saw Arunachal Pradesh sign agreements with both public sector and private sector players. Deals for 142 dams – their capacity ranging from 4.50 MW to 4,000 MW – on virtually all rivers and streams were inked by 2015.In July 2015, former Congress Chief Minister Nabam Tuki told the State Assembly that Arunachal Pradesh received ₹1,495.6 crore as upfront money and processing fees from agreements signed with 159 companies for projects with installed capacities of 47,000 MW. The upfront money was charged per MW.Local tribal groups and environmentalists across Arunachal Pradesh and Assam – which fears a massive downstream effect of the proposed dams – stalled most of the mega projects while a few such as the 2,000 MW Subansiri Lower being built by the NHPC has been lying incomplete since 2011.Over the years, though, the Khandu government has been inclined towards smaller, sustainable hydroelectric projects. “It is time to change our mindset. Clean and green energy can change the economy of the State and the region,” Mr. Khandu said.Kulsi damMeghalaya’s push for the Kulsi multi-purpose dam, declared a National Project, along the Assam-Meghalaya border, has unnerved the residents of 33 villages in Assam. The project has been in limbo for almost a decade, but a consensus between the Assam and Meghalaya governments has paved the ground for a detailed project report. The dam is proposed on the Kulsi, a river where the endangered Gangetic river dolphins from the Brahmaputra breed, near Ukiam, a village about 75 km west of Guwahati.The proposed capacity of the Kulsi project has not been specified, but it entails a 62m high concrete dam on the inter-State border. The project is estimated to cost ₹1,460 crore and would affect 15.55 sq km of land in Assam and 5.75 sq km in Meghalaya due to reservoir submergence.“We cannot let our homes and farmlands be destroyed. The dam will be built over our dead bodies,” said J.R. Marak, the president of a committee involving all the villages.
The BCCI on Monday banned its players from taking part in the upcoming Sri Lankan Premier League Twenty20 tournament, claiming it is being run by a private company.Board of Control for Cricket in India secretary Narainswamy Srinivasan said that the decision had been taken because of “the involvement of a private entrepreneur” and since the tournament was not run fully by Sri Lanka Cricket.The board had on Sunday barred its players from participating in the tournament.However, SLC secretary Nishantha Ranatunga said in Colombo that the T20 league was “not a private venture but an SLC project.”
“I think the second round will be harder because of the adjustments of the teams and I know that the first round was really a team effort,” said Tolentino who had 10 points against the Lady Bulldogs.“We earned this by working together and following the system and we have to continue that while also adjusting because the other teams will come out stronger,” added Tolentino.“Whatever we did in the first round we have to double that,” said De Leon, who finished with 13 points against NU. “The other teams are about to peak and the teams are going to fight harder. We have to focus on what needs to be done.”ADVERTISEMENT The Lady Eagles soared to a 6-1 record with all those wins coming in successive order, but they know the Lady Eagles are in for a tougher fight once the second half of the tournament starts.“It’s about to get harder but our mindset is we know that the first round is over so now we have to work doubly harder,” said Bea De Leon after their 23-25, 25-17, 25-23, 25-17 win over National University Saturday.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logisticsAteneo’s lone loss of the season came in the hands of defending champion De La Salle, 25-14, 25-17, 16-25, 25-19, before racking six straight wins to end the first round.Tolentino said the other teams in the league would come out swinging in the second round and the only thing they can do is perform better than what they did in the first half of the tournament.
