GOLF: LETTERKENNY GOLF CLUB LADIES NEWS

first_imgOpen Week was slightly disrupted with some unusual wet June weather; it usually rains for the entire week, whereas Tuesdays Ladies Open, sponsored very kindly by Con Boyce of the Golf Shop, was played in particularly nice sunshine for most of the day.The winner with 33 points and proud owner of a lovely new golf bag was Eileen Keating. 2nd Catherine Cooke-Harkin 33 points B.O.T. Gross Tracy Spence 21 Gross Points B.O.T. 3rd Elaine Russell 33 points B.O.T. Visitor Noreen Allen Bundoran Golf Club 29 points. Front 9 Ruth Daly. Back 9 Siobhan Wherity.Have you taken up the sport of golf in recent years. In fact, you may be playing golf many years and are a little rusty on some of the basic rules and etiquette. For example, did you know you should not leave your bag or trolley in front of the green while you putt. Or, that you should wait until you are at the next tee before marking cards. These are some of the reasons why slow play ensues and people in groups coming behind you, are getting frustrated with your slow play. Slow play is all very well, if that is what you enjoy, but holding the rest of the course and everyone coming behind you to ransom is not okay, There will be a short informal discussion on etiquette, rules and handicaps in the golf club on Thursday 5th July. Everyone is urged to come along. Tracy Spence is our I.L.G.U. Rules Official and will be giving a short talk on some of the basic mistakes we tend to make.Commiserations to Team Captain Mary Ellen McNulty and the Miele Team who were defeated by Dunfanaghy by one hole after the home team, Dunfanaghy won on the 20th hole in the play off holes. Good luck to our friends in Dunfanaghy who are always so hospitable to visitors, in their next round.The Maura O’Donnell competition is still live for us, so please make sure your name is on the panel.The next round of the Club Mixed Foursomes, very kindly sponsored once again this year by McDonalds Restaurant, must be completed by the 22nd July. Also, a new event has just been added to our fixtures. There will be an OPEN Mixed Foursomes on the 13th July. Book online to reserve your tee time. Next Tuesday, 3rd July, is the July Medal and like me you are probably shaking your head in disbelief at the passage of time! Please make sure your name is in the draw. If you are a Facebook user, there is a Letterkenny Golf Club Ladies forum for our members.Golf Knowledge and Rules.A question from one of our gents this week. His ball, following his tee shot, broke into pieces and part of it landed out of bounds. What is the ruling?Answer:If a ball breaks into pieces as a result of a stroke, the stroke is cancelled and the player replays without penalty, as near as possible at the spot where the original ball was played under rule 5.3. It doesn’t make any difference where the pieces of the ball end up.

Darwinism as All-Purpose Flexible Caulk

first_imgFossils continue to turn up surprises.  Some of them appear in the wrong place, in the wrong time, or in the wrong order.  Darwinian theory never seems to have a problem, though.  Evolutionary paleontologists always find a way to stretch or shrink their phylogenetic trees to accommodate the new discoveries, or make up new imaginary tales, to fit the new findings into the all-encompassing story of universal common descent by natural selection.Proto-squid:  What was Nectocaris?  The strange fossil in the Burgess Shale, one of many strange fossils in the Burgess Shale, defied classification since its discovery 100 years ago.  Was it a mollusc?  Was it an arthropod?  After looking at dozens of them, scientists publishing in Nature decided this week,1 based on one trait, that it must have been the ancestor of squids and octopi.  That trait appears to have been an organ of jet propulsion that modern squid, cuttlefish and octopi use to scoot through the water.  This organ on Nectocaris doesn’t look quite the same; it’s at right angles to the creature, for one thing, as if it would have spun the poor animal in circles.  Perhaps it had a pivot so it could be aimed in various directions.  The creature has eyes and tentacles but lacks some other characteristic cephalopod traits.  Nevertheless, Smith and Caron put their theory out there anyway, and Stefan Bengtson liked the theory enough to title his commentary, “A little Kraken wakes.”2  The news media immediately jumped on the bandwagon with headlines like the one on PhysOrg, “Palaeontologists solve mystery of 500 million-year-old squid-like carnivore.”    Even if Smith and Caron are right, it doesn’t help Darwin’s story.  Smith wrote in the press release printed by PhysOrg, “This is significant because it means that primitive cephalopods were around much earlier than we thought, and offers a reinterpretation of the long-held origins of this important group of marine animals.”  Like the other Cambrian body plans, a complex cephalopod emerged out of nowhere.  Smith continued, “We know very little about the relationships between the major groups of molluscs, and the early history of the group,” yet somehow, he said, “Fossils like Nectocaris help us to map out how the groups alive today might be related, and how they evolved.”  If this is indeed a cephalopod in Cambrian strata, it exacerbates the problem of complex life appearing early in the fossil record.  “Far from being mindless filterers or grazers, they [cephalopods] are active predators possessing the most advanced nervous system known among invertebrates.  Their brain-to-body ratio exceeds that of most vertebrates,” Bengtson said.  “They are masters of camouflage, changing shape, surface pattern, texture and colour in the blink of an eye – and they do have good eyes.”Swimming tank:  Imagine a triceratops swimming across the ocean.  That’s almost what a story in Live Science is asking us to believe: “Newfound Horned Dinosaur Probably Island-Hopped to Europe.”  Horned dinosaurs of a type normally known from the Gobi Desert have been identified in Europe.  How did they get there?  Based on another paper published in Nature this week,3 Charles Q. Choi reported that the ancestors of this kind of dinosaur were only known from the far east.  Based on what the scientists said, he imagined this scenario: “Their ancestors might have swum westward from island to island, or they might have walked to these areas when the islands were landlocked, only to get separated later when sea levels rose,” he said.  Perhaps you can think of other mental pictures.  Xing Xu of feathered dinosaur fame commented on this find in Nature.4  He began by mentioning the large gaps in the record: “Reconstructing the historical distribution of Earth’s fauna and flora is a challenging task, not least because of the incomplete, often poorly dated, nature of the fossil record,” he said.  “Such problems are particularly severe with respect to European biogeography in the Late Cretaceous period (about 100 million to 65 million years ago), when Europe was an archipelago.”  A shipload of Darwin caulk is necessary for such situations; maybe even an Ark load.Reset button:  Science Daily told a mystery tale of catastrophe: something hit the reset button, and killed almost everything, but fortunately we survived.  “A mass extinction of fish 360 million years ago hit the reset button on Earth’s life, setting the stage for modern vertebrate biodiversity, a new study reports.”  What was it?  Nobody knows, but “Those few species that survived the bottleneck were the evolutionary starting point for all vertebrates — including humans — that exist today,” we are told.  It was a global extinction.  It left a completely different world.  Maybe the world got drunk, because the article said the 15-million-year gap “was the hangover after the traumatic Hangenberg event.”  Somewhere out of the hangover, our grandpappy emerged.  “When tetrapods finally recovered, those survivors were likely the great-great-grandfathers to the vast majority of land vertebrates present today.”    It would be nice to know what happened, but: “What remains mysterious is exactly what happened 360 million years ago to trigger this mass extinction, the authors said.”  If you thought trees were our friends, “The first appearance of forest-like environments in some regions might also have produced atmospheric changes catastrophic to animal life.”  What did the forest trees evolve from?  They didn’t say.  Perhaps they just “appeared.”  Maybe this study helped the scientists learn some things about evolution: “The research also raises questions about the pattern of evolution after the extinction event.  It remains unclear why groups that were abundant before the event did not recover, while other groups spread and diversified in radical new ways.”  Your tax dollars at work: “Funding for the research was provided by the National Science Foundation, the University of Chicago Hinds Fund, the Paleontological Society, the Palaeontological Association, the American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists, and the Evolving Earth Foundation.”The cannibal in the family tree:  National Geographic, always one to overdo the shock and awe (how do they fit so many “Annual Shark Week” events in a year?) decided to introduce the cannibal in our ancestry, Homo gautengensis.  If you hadn’t heard of this particular Uncle Harry, or how they knew someone 800,000 years ago liked the taste of human flesh, the story gets a little sketchy the more you get into the fine print.  First, you find there’s not enough bone to make a valid reconstruction.  There’s not enough bone to know whether it spent time in the trees, to know what it ate, to know whether it talked, or to know how it lived.  Then you find there’s dispute among experts whether it was Homo at all, or rather Australopithecus.  Then you learn that it doesn’t really matter, because it and Australopithecus sediba, another contender for human ancestor, were contemporaries – casting the evolutionary status of both fossils into doubt.  Then you learn that the dating of both of these fossils is also very questionable; no one is certain when they lived.    Finally, you learn that the author of the paper about this dude isn’t even sure what he is holding in his hand: “It is up to my colleagues to decide whether they are convinced that a new species is warranted and whether they will use [the designation] in their research.”  As for its evolutionary value, he said, “The real significance of the new species is that it shows just how complicated, how bushy, our evolutionary tree was.”  So by this time, the reader can judge the scientific value of the caulk holding together a picture of a tree-swinging human ancestor that scraped the brains out of other Homo things for food, as the National Geographic shock-and-awe article opened, into the grand scheme of human evolution.  Let’s return to the opening: “There’s a good chance it was a tiny little cannibalistic tree swinger, but the newly identified Homo gautengensis is family, according to a new study.  Thought to have used tools—and possibly fire—the creature is the oldest named species in the human genus, Homo, study author Darren Curnoe says.”  Wanna bet on it?National Geographic went on to speculate that the Homo gautengensis creature even had rudimentary language.  Strangely, the article did not consider how it would be possible for a creature intelligent enough to build fire, use tools, and speak to walk the planet for 795,000 years before ever thinking about inventing a wheel, planting a farm, building a city, riding a horse, or writing his thoughts down – or why in about 3500 B.C. all those things exploded into existence suddenly in the Fertile Crescent, with long-distance trade, mining, manufacturing, and shipping, too.  But Darwin didn’t live till the 19th century A.D., and by then, humans had steam locomotives to transport all the caulk anyone could ever need.1.  Martin R.

That was the message at the launch of the second installment of Brand South Africa’s #InspiredByMyConstitution campaign in Johannesburg recently.Actress Letoya Makhene (right), hip-hop artist Gemini Major (left) and filmmaker Imraan Christian have joined hands with Brand South Africa to bring you this year’s #InspiredByMyConstitution Campaign. (Image: Mathiba Molefe)Mathiba MolefeSouth Africa’s Constitution is one of the most progressive and inclusive in the world, but not all South Africans know just how awesome it is.To fix this, Brand South Africa kicked off the second phase of its Constitutional campaign #InspiredByMyConstitution with a media launch at Constitution Hill in Johannesburg on Friday 15 September. The campaign will raise awareness of our Constitution and how it empowers and protects all of us.“This campaign is very much about empowerment,” said Linda Sangaret, Brand South Africa’s chief marketing officer.“We particularly focus on the youth in doing this. Empowering the youth with information, empowering the youth with knowledge in order for them to play their part in building the nation brand.”Today’s media launch was a great success. Coming soon…… #inspiredbymyconstitution @Brand_SA pic.twitter.com/1to1pmDE7P— Sithembile Ntombela (@the_sithe) September 15, 2017The Constitution in everyday life#InspiredByMyConstitution aims to get the youth – and South Africans as a whole – to familiarise themselves with their rights, as laid out in the Constitution’s Bill of Rights. Young people can benefit themselves and the country by taking full advantage of these rights.The campaign will showcase how the Constitution benefits everyone, every day. It is supported by three celebrity social influencers whose lives have been directly affected by the Constitution.Gemini Major is a Malawian-born record producer and singer-songwriter. Imraan Christian is a photographer and filmmaker whose work is deeply rooted in activism, whose rise came about during the #FeesMustFall protests. Letoya Makhene is a well-known actress, singer and TV personality, famous for roles in some of South Africa’s top soap operas, such as Isidingo and Generations.With the help of these celebrities, Brand South Africa hopes to engage with the youth and bring to light the immense potential Constitutional protection offers for personal growth and development.#InspiredByMyConstitution aims to get the youth – and South Africans as a whole – to familiarise themselves with their rights, as laid out in the Constitution’s Bill of Rights.Human rights for all“I came here for family,” Gemini Major, a Malawian national, said at the launch.“After experiencing the whole country, I wanted to stay here in South Africa. I wanted to be here and chase my dreams. Then the xenophobia thing happened and all of that, you know.“I’m just happy that there are actually people who speak for the people affected by xenophobia. Some people are afraid to chase their dreams, just because they’re from a different country.“So being a part of this is something I’m so happy to do. I can speak for other people out there, who can’t speak for themselves.“Showing them that the Constitution actually has your back. South Africa actually has your back. Everyone has human rights  – whether you’re from Malawi, Ghana Nigeria, whatever.

Now, as part of the # InspiredByMyConstitution campaign, she hopes to inspire other South Africans to reach for their own dreams.“I was able to go to multiracial schools,” she said at the launch. “I was able to be educated in places where, probably two or three years prior to our new Constitution, black children were not accepted.“My parents could openly take us to take us to school, even though we had dreadlocks! That was my Constitution protecting me. Freedom of expression – and a right to be me …“And so, my Constitution has had my back.“My Constitution, later on, protected me as a woman. It’s difficult to be a woman in a male-dominated society.“So, it has been great to be a woman and be able to have a voice, and to be able to stand up for myself and be able to freely speak and celebrate myself as a woman.”“We wanted to look at the subject matter of our Constitution from the point of view of young people by tapping into pop culture in order to amplify the message in a fun, persuasive, culturally relevant and informative way.” said Linda Sangaret, Brand South Africa’s chief marketing officer.The best Constitution in the world“This campaign comes at a time when youth in South Africa are standing up, taking their issues to the streets, to gain attention and immediate responses from government and society at large,” said Sithembile Ntombela, Brand South Africa’s general manager for marketing.“They are demanding change that will open opportunities for them to improve their socioeconomic status and quality of life.“We wanted to look at the subject matter of our Constitution from the point of view of young people by tapping into pop culture in order to amplify the message in a fun, persuasive, culturally relevant and informative way.”Sangaret added that South Africans should be extremely proud of their Constitution.“According to research, there is a study that was carried out that actually measures the constitutions of different countries, and South Africa has the best constitution in the world,” she explained.“And so South Africans need to know this. That we have raised the bar, we have set an amazing example for other countries, even rich and well-developed countries. Their Constitutions are not rated as highly as ours.”Keep an eye out for the series of web films featuring Gemini Major and Letoya Makhene as well as photographer and filmmaker Imran Christian, to find out how they benefited from our Constitution.

Murshidabad triple murder case solved, say police

first_imgPolice have claimed to have “solved” the triple murder case in Murshidabad district with the arrest of a mason named Utpal Behra.Bandhu Prakash Pal, a 35-year-old schoolteacher, his wife and their child were found dead in their home about a week ago.Superintendent of Police Mukesh Kumar said Behra had deposited money in a savings scheme run by Pal. The latter had refused to give Behra a receipt for a part of the payment he had made. This led to a confrontation for a period of time and finally resulted in the murders, Mr. Kumar said.Political overtonesThe incident had acquired political overtones with the BJP and West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar hitting out at the Mamata Banerjee government and the RSS claiming that the teacher was its supporter. The victims’ family, however, insisted that Pal had no political affiliations.Pal collected money from small investors in and around Jiaganj town in Murshidabad. Behra, a man without a steady income, had invested in two schemes. He told interrogators that Pal gave him a receipt for the first scheme but refused to give him one for the other.Weapon recovered“For the last few weeks, Pal and Behra used to quarrel over this. Pal even insulted him, after which Behra decided to kill him,” Mr. Kumar told journalists. The weapon used in the crime has been recovered.last_img read more
