Beachgoers to go the extra mile due to water upgrade works this May

Posted on

first_imgRoad closures have been scheduled for the main route into Marble Hill Beach at the beginning of the summer season.Irish Water has revealed plans to upgrade the water supply in the coastal area near Dunfanaghy with the replacement of 370 metres of ageing water mains and service connections.To accommodate the works, the L-1272-1 Marble Hill Road will be closed on weekdays from 7th May until the end of May. Plans are in place to open the road every weekend from 6.00pm Friday to 8.00am Monday during the project.Beachgoers will be directed to follow an alternative route along the L-1272-2 Rockhill Road, which will be signposted. Local and emergency traffic will be maintained at all times, according to the water authority.The project will take place along Faugher Heights and continue on to Marble Hill Court. It will be delivered by Farrans on behalf of Irish Water.Local residents and businesses may face short-term water shut offs during the works. The project team has said they will ensure that customers are given a minimum of 48 hours’ notice prior to any planned water shut offs. Commenting on the project, Declan Cawley, Regional Lead for the Leakage Reduction Programme said: “Replacing these ageing water mains will not only reduce the high levels of leakage, but it will also improve the reliability of the water supply to businesses and residents. We understand that this type of work can be inconvenient but we will make every effort to minimise any disruption caused by these necessary works. We would like to thank local residents for their cooperation as we work together to deliver these important  improvements for the local community. ”Residents and businesses in the areas have been notified and customers can call our customer care helpline on Callsave 1850 278 278 with any questions about the project.Beachgoers to go the extra mile due to water upgrade works this May was last modified: April 26th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:DunfanaghyIrish WaterMarble Hillroad closurelast_img read more

The Elephant Explosion

Posted on

first_imgThe title is not intended to suggest pieces of pachyderm flying all over the place, but rather one paleontologist’s theory about the rapid pace of elephant evolution 60 million years ago.  He bases his ideas on a small fossil he found in Morocco.  According to him, the primitive ancestor of all elephants (order Proboscidea) lived 5 million years earlier than thought, and gave rise to “one of the most spectacular examples of morphological evolution known in Mammalia” that occurred in “a rapid and basically explosive placental radiation.”    Emmanuel Gheerbrant, a paleontologist in Paris, described his fossil Eritherium azzouzorum in PNAS.1  His evolutionary story was picked up by Jeanna Bryner at Live Science who wrote about the “oldest elephant relative found.”  Elephant?  Bryner admitted, “the animal would not have looked much like an elephant.  It was just 1.6 to 2 feet (50 to 60 cm) long and weighed 9 to 11 pounds (4 to 5 kg).”  That’s compared to a modern elephant standing 11 feet tall at the shoulder and weighing 5 tons.  New Scientist joined in, saying that “You wouldn’t have recognized Eritherium as an elephant when it was roaming Morocco 60 million years ago… But detailed study of the newly discovered fossil’s teeth, jaws and skull shows it to be the oldest member yet found of the order Proboscidea, of which elephants are the only living survivors.”  New Scientist hoped that “The new find may shed light on the origins of elephants and other mammals… It shows elephants were making evolutionary progress 5 million years after the dinosaurs died out.”    Since pachyderms didn’t evolve till 34 million years ago, Darwin apparently shipped the trunk 26 million years late.  How, then, could Gheerbrant call this an ancestor of the gentle giants we know and live in the local zoo?  Bryner explained, “The animal’s relation to elephants was determined via analysis of the specimen’s teeth and skull.  While it lacked a trunk, the animal had an enlarged first incisor, which researcher Emmanuel Gheerbrant of the National Museum of Natural History in Paris, France, says represents a primitive tusk.”  It is doubtful that this little animal used a tooth enlarged by millimeters to pull down trees.    That word “primitive” was indeed found all over Gheerbrant’s paper (used 19 times).  Yet for the animal itself, its features would have seemed well adapted for its own environment.  Is not the word “primitive” a judgment call by the paleontologist assuming it was “making evolutionary progress” from primitive to advanced?  That idea would be guilty of circular reasoning.  Another kind of circularity was revealed in the dating of the fossil.  The estimate of 60 million years was based entirely on index fossils and stratigraphy – both of which assume the evolutionary dating scheme the author was trying to use to establish the fossil’s time and place in evolutionary history.    A look through the scientific paper reveals other statements that cast doubt on the author’s confidence that this fossil has anything to do with the evolution of elephants.  For one thing, the photo of the fossil pieces shows no postcranial anatomy.  His judgment was made entirely on pieces of skull and jaw and five teeth.  None of the teeth looks anything like a primitive tusk – nor did he claim so in the paper, regardless of what he told the press.    For another, placement of this fossil in a phylogenetic position with the Proboscidea involved numerous human judgment calls on his part.  He had to juggle which pieces of evidence, based on tiny measurements from the fragmentary fossil, represent plesiomorphies (traits present before the common ancestor), synapomorphies (traits present in the common ancestor), and homoplasies (unrelated but similar traits attributed to “convergent evolution”).  Of the latter, his table listed 11 homoplasies with other unrelated groups.  The factors he considered worthy were then plugged into computer software that tried to build an evolutionary tree out of them.  The outcome of tree-building software, however, can vary widely depending on the criteria inserted or left out, the relative weighting of factors, the algorithm used, and the outgroup selected (see 07/26/2008, 06/26/2008, 10/15/2003, and especially 10/01/2005 and 07/25/2002).    The following quotes reveal something of the contradictory data, the gaps in empirical data from fossils, and the juggling involved in reaching a conclusion.  Notice how his best fit was obtained with his own previous work – raising additional questions about objectivity:The TNT unweighted parsimony analysis including Eritherium yields a very poorly resolved consensus tree mainly resulting from the unstable position of Khamsaconus.  Analysis without Khamsaconus shows that, besides the robust proboscidean relationships of Eritherium, basal relationships among paenungulates remain unstable, as illustrated by the basal polytomy in the consensus (Fig. 3A).  This polytomy is basically related to our poor fossil knowledge of the ancestral morphotype of several orders such as Embrithopoda, Desmostylia, and Anthracobunia.  Our analysis supports a Sirenia-Desmostylia clade sister group of Proboscidea within Tethytheria.  The standard TNT “implied weighting” analysis yields a topology (Fig. 3B), which is nearly identical to that of Gheerbrant et al.Here’s another quote that reveals multiple levels of subjectivity:2The bunodont incipient lophodont morphotype is derived relative to the eutherian condition, and it is distinct from the perissodactyl pattern.  This morphotype is an additional morphological character and one of the most remarkable dental characters reported for close relationships of paenungulates, macroscelideans, and louisinines.  However, our parsimony analysis does not formally support sister-group relationships of the Macroscelidea plus Louisininae and the Paenungulata by contrast to molecular and recent morphological analyses advocating the Afrotheria clade.  The recovered topology (Fig. 3) shows a sister-group relationship of Laurasian lophodont ungulates such as perissodactyls to paenungulates, instead of the macroscelideans (and louisinines).  Similarly, our analysis does not discriminate clearly Laurasian (e.g., phenacodontids) and African (e.g., Ocepeia) “condylarths” as possible early ungulate representatives of molecular laurasiatherian and afrotherian clades.  Fossils gaps, and especially for African taxa, most probably explain poorly resolved cladistic basal relationships of the Paenungulata in our tree (Fig. 3).  These gaps are illustrated by our poor knowledge of the ancestral morphotype of several key paenungulates orders; for instance, the ancestral relative size of the last molar in paenungulates is challenged by Eritherium (M33 not enlarged).  At lower level in the tree, the morphological and fossil gap is even worse for the phylogenetic analysis of the superordinal clade Afrotheria including Tenrecoidea and Tubulidentata, which are excluded from this study because of the lack of Paleogene data.  In this respect, the cladistic study of Eritherium does not help to test the question of the macroscelidean position within Afrotheria.  However, Eritherium dental morphology argues for a bunodont-lophodont, i.e., ungulatelike, ancestral morphotype for the Paenungulata, Louisininae, and Macroscelidea, within putative Afrotheria.A lot of his evolutionary reasoning, therefore, depends on tiny measurements of tooth shape and systematic gaps in fossil evidence.  The “ancestral morphotype” exists only in the evolutionist’s imagination.    Given these empirical problems, it does not appear even possible to arrive at a definitive evolutionary analysis from the fossil evidence.  This creature could have been called one more well-adapted, extinct mammal, like many other well-adapted, extinct mammals, and left at that.  The story of evolution, however, is what received prominence.  Gheerbrant spoke of a “rapid paenungulate radiation at the Cretaceous-Tertiary (KT) transition” several times.  In fact, it was this story line that excused the lack of evidence: “Rapid paenungulate radiation and fossil gaps may explain poorly resolved interordinal relationships,” he said at one point.  The elephants-to-be must have been evolving so quickly they didn’t have time to leave any fossils.  In fact, this rapid evolution involved more than the Proboscidea: there was a “rapid and basically explosive placental radiation,” he said.  That explosion involved all the post-Cretaceous placental mammals.    So here is another explosion to add to the Cambrian explosion: a “basically explosive placental radiation” that was used to support evolutionary theory, as was the Cambrian explosion, by the lack of evidence for it (see 05/10/2008).1.  Emmanuel Gheerbrant, “Paleocene emergence of elephant relatives and the rapid radiation of African ungulates,” Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, print June 22, 2009, doi: 10.1073/pnas.0900251106.2.  Note: the reader does not need to understand the jargon to get a sense of the fudging that goes on.  Curious readers can use Dictionary.com for definitions and the Reference.com page on cladistic analysis.Day by day, we expose the unscientific divination practices of the Darwin sooth-slayers.  Don’t be intimidated by the jargon.  You can look it up.  Learn to perceive the methods, omissions, assumptions and philosophy that makes these modern-day shamans pretend to be

How to Find Your Most Important Fans

Posted on

first_imgRelated Posts How to Write a Welcome Email to New Employees? Why You Love Online Quizzes Tags:#APIs#Big Data#hack#Services Word of mouth is an incredibly powerful marketing tool, but how do you work out which customers are most important in spreading your message? Services like PeerIndex or Klout help you find experts and influencers in particular communities, but can’t measure what people have actually done for your business. The new Vipli.st service from Awe.sm aims to fill this gap by uncovering the fans who drive the most sharing.Launched at the Strata Startup Showcase last week, the site visualizes how Plancast events are shared across social networks like Twitter and Facebook. It draws a tree showing the first person to create a plan, with links below to everyone who added themselves as attendees after clicking on that link, downwards through the entire history of the conversation around the event. Here’s what it looks like for a SXSW Lean Startup plan:The number next to each name shows how many attendees each person helped to sign up. Eric Ries is responsible for bringing in 10 attendees, which is no surprise since he’s the best-known evangelist for the Lean Startup movement. How about Melissa Grody of 500Startups though? Despite having a pretty low-key Twitter account with just over a hundred followers, she’s indirectly responsible for four signups, thanks to Patrick Vlaskovits picking up her tweet. Broad influence measuring services would never flag her role, but Vipli.st makes it possible to spot and recognize fans like her who are key to spreading the word.The service was created by the Awe.sm team, and uses the same API that’s available to third-party developers to gather the data it needs. To create the family tree of which attendees were driven by which fans, Plancast uses Awe.sm to create a new URL for each attendee that signs up, including a unique parameter that marks which user is sending out the plan. That parameter is also stored in Plancast’s database, so when another user clicks on that special URL, it’s possible to tell which person sent them to the site.Awe.sm’s co-founder Jonathan Strauss thinks that this sort of performance-based measurement is going to be a crucial tool for anyone marketing using social tools: If all you want to do is reach people, direct marketing through email is a great channel. What’s different about social tools like Twitter and Facebook are the retweet and like buttons, since users are far more likely to click them than they are to forward an email. The real value of social networks is in the sharing.Plancast’s Mark Hendrickson explained why this was so important to their business. The whole idea behind our site is to help people hear about events through their friends. Vipli.st is the first time we’ve been able to visualize how that’s happening in any kind of detail.To explain how this could be useful to other businesses, Strauss pointed to one of Awe.sm’s customers, the music store creator TopSpin (which markets online for artists like Eminem, Brian Eno and the Beastie Boys). Bands would love to uncover their most important fans, the ones who do the most to spread the word about their albums and concerts. Right now they can spot the big individual spenders, but not the penniless student who can’t afford the deluxe $250 box set, but who persuades all her friends to buy the new album. She’s the one they should really be inviting to their velvet-rope launch events, since she’s doing far more to make them a success.Strauss thinks broader measures of influence are still useful for brand-building, but that laser-focused performance metrics will become increasingly important to social marketers. “To understand how your social campaign is working, you need to understand how your message is being passed on down the chain”. He and his team built the Vipli.st service to prove how easy it was to gather the data with Awe.sm and turn it into an actionable story. It’s based completely on its public API, and Strauss is keen to work with any external developers who would like to do something similar with their own site.I’m fascinated by the stories that this sort of analysis of public conversations will be able to tell us. By uncovering the hidden influencers within communities, hopefully we’ll be able to reward some of the unfairly neglected true fans too.center_img Growing Phone Scams: 5 Tips To Avoid 7 Types of Video that will Make a Massive Impac… pete wardenlast_img read more

Government staff to take cleanliness pledge on Gandhi Jayanti

Posted on

first_imgFor the first time in the history of India, Gandhi Jayanti will not be a holiday for government staff who will have to report to work to take the ‘Swachch Shapath’.Cabinet Secretary Ajit Seth, on September 20, directed all central government secretaries to ensure that every employee takes the pledge on October 2, the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. The text of the pledge will soon be sent to all the departments.Besides this, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken several steps to implement one of the biggest public campaigns for cleanliness. The minutes of meeting between Modi and 20 secretaries reveals that a new law may be enforced to ensure cleanliness. The prime minister has asked the law linistry to amend existing laws or to analyse whether a new Act is required to act against those who litter.The prime minister also directed the Finance Ministry to explore a taxation policy to keep a check on those who pollute.According to the minutes of meetings, Modi was of the opinion that dairies and cattle are major sources of garbage and pollution in urban areas and towns.Hence, he directed the animal husbandry department to consider setting up of cattle hostels. The prime minister asked his sub-ordinates to engage Bollywood celebrities in a big way to campaign for his ‘Swachch Bharat’ mission.Famous poets and singers should also be a part of the nationwide campaign that will begin on September 25, the prime minister said.A marathon will be organised by the sports ministry to create awareness about the cleanliness drive in every city with a population of over one lakh.advertisementThe Prime Minister further suggested the Department of School and Education to ensure questions on cleanliness in examinations.Meanwhile, prime minister Modi noted that he had undertaken plans to cleanse the political system and the administration machinery. “Now is the time to cleanse the nation. I want each one of you to contribute in every possible way. It is our vision to present a clean India to the outside world,” he asserted.Coming down heavily on the banking system, Modi wondered whether the banks served the purpose they were set up for. “We need inclusive growth. Our Jan Dhan sceheme will help us achieve it,” he said.last_img read more

Power Rankings: The 10 Best GIFs in Oklahoma State Football History

first_imgThis is a tricky subject to rank, as the Internet is a vast wasteland of random and obscure material. That said, I did manual Google searches for hours in hopes of locating the best Oklahoma State football gifs available. I’d prefer to not discuss the amount of time I have on my hands.The list below contains my ten favorite gifs, but what’s great is you may have access to some I don’t know exist yet. Feel free to leave those in the comments and we’ll all marvel in wonderment at how I could have missed such a gem. It’ll be great.Without further a do…10. Pistol Pete’s Crazy Leg Move Volume 1Because Pistol Pete’s crazy leg move made headlines during last week’s Central Michigan game, I found it great this gif exists. This would be the Baylor game from 2013 – a game the Cowboys won by a score of 49-17.10The guy inside changes. The moves stay the same.9. Depressed Turkey Leg KidI was at Oklahoma State for 4 years…eh…4.5 years…and I can probably admit to doing some half-hearted wheat waving at times. But nothing will ever top this, right? Nothing ever could.9(This could also be the disclaimer for the excitement involved when you play Kansas.)8. Barry Sanders Heisman RaiseThis one is self-explanatory. The monumental level of cool this gif emotes is staggering. The dude doesn’t even crack a smile!87. The “I Can’t Even”I’m into this gif because we’ve all been there before, right? You’re watching the Cowboys, your outfit is on point…..and then the Pokes go and do something that leaves you with this facial expression. Classic.76. Don’t Trust Corso with a GunSeems pretty intuitive at this point, but we keep handing firearms to Lee Corso when he visits Stillwater. Kirk Herbstreit’s reaction pretty much says it all, although I’ve long doubted his toughness.65. WHAT IS THIS!?WHAT IS THIS AND WHY DOES IT EXIST?!5Confusion leading it all the way to number 5. Impressive.4. The “What the Heck, Bro?!”Pistol Pete is out there being cool, minding his business. Ball comes out of nowhere and goes straight into attack mode.4I like this gif because the arm toss says exactly what happened: “I can’t see anything coming with this gigantic Cowboy head on.”3.

Use this gif in any situation that requires celebration.32. Barry Takes FlightNot to regurgitate my line about Mr. Sanders from earlier, but excuse me while I do:2The monumental amount of cool this gif emotes is staggering.1. Watch Me Whip, Watch Me GundyThis particular move from Mike Boogie is the one I think of when I think about him dancing. The erratic movements. The weird, drop it to the floor while creating a bridge with your body thing he does. This is peak Gundy Dance, folks. In gif form.1There you have it – my top 10 Oklahoma State football gifs.
