Regardless Of Rumors, Butch Jones Is On The Hot Seat

first_imgButch Jones surrounded by his players.Twitter/@6NewsThis season was supposed to be a return to form for the proud Tennessee program. While Georgia was the favorite to win the SEC East, some liked the young, talented Volunteers to take a big leap and challenge the Bulldogs for a spot in the SEC Championship. After rough Lane Kiffin and Derek Dooley regimes, Butch Jones looked like the guy to lead the Vols back to national relevance. Instead, Tennessee is 2-3, with brutal losses to Oklahoma, and most recently Arkansas, another disappointing SEC program. The three losses have featured incredibly questionable coaching decisions, and the tide has seemingly turned for head coach Butch Jones.Butch Jones was a darling in Knoxville just three weeks ago, but now some Tennessee fans want to see him gone.To all the people wanting to fire Butch Jones: Charlie Strong will probably be available at the end of the season. #vols— Wesley Mason (@RealWMason) October 4, 2015What’s it like to have all the tools and still fail @UTCoachJones— Will Caffey (@Caffeyteria) October 4, 2015After tonight I am convinced Butch Jones isn’t the man for the job.

2.95 Million Tourists Between January and August

first_imgStory Highlights Minister of Tourism, Hon. Edmund Bartlett, says this represents a 4.7 per cent increase when compared to the corresponding period last year. Providing an official update on the performance of the sector at the Ministry’s New Kingston offices on September 5, Mr. Bartlett said the sector continues to perform well amidst national, regional and global challenges. Provisional figures from the Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) show that between January and August 2018, a total of 2.95 million tourists visited Jamaica.Minister of Tourism, Hon. Edmund Bartlett, says this represents a 4.7 per cent increase when compared to the corresponding period last year.Providing an official update on the performance of the sector at the Ministry’s New Kingston offices on September 5, Mr. Bartlett said the sector continues to perform well amidst national, regional and global challenges.He said the figures indicate that the sector is on target to outperform the benchmark target of five per cent growth in five years.“Last year broke all of that, because we got 12 per cent. To grow on last year is a phenomenal achievement and to be growing at the five per cent that we project is even more phenomenal,” the Minister said.He noted that preliminary gross foreign exchange earnings for the first eight months of 2018 were approximately US$2.2 billion.“That means you are trending well ahead of the US$3-billion mark for the end of this calendar year. If we continue with these robust arrival figures to year end, then for the third consecutive year, the growth of Jamaica’s tourism sector would have exceeded the projected five per cent annual growth,” he said.Meanwhile, the Minister pointed out that the figures indicate the country experienced the “best summer” performance for the period May to August 2018.Mr. Bartlett informed that the provisional estimates showed stopover arrivals up by six per cent, when compared to the corresponding period last year.“That is 884,324 visitors compared to the 834,292 in 2017. These figures contributed to total visitor arrivals of 1,312,494, which was a 4.4 per cent increase over the same period last year,” the Minister said.Mr. Bartlett emphasised that this augurs well for the country’s high season, which begins in December. Provisional figures from the Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) show that between January and August 2018, a total of 2.95 million tourists visited Jamaica.last_img read more

BC First Nations criticize Trudeau government for approving Site C permits

Study shows benefits of including red raspberries in the diet of people

first_img Source:https://web.iit.edu/ Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Feb 26 2019A study released today from the Illinois Institute of Technology shows the benefits of including red raspberries in the diet of individuals with pre-diabetes and insulin resistance.According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 34 percent of American adults, around 84.1 million in all, had prediabetes in 2015. Patients with prediabetes are at higher risk for a number of conditions – including developing type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer’s disease.The study, published in Obesity, investigated the effects of red raspberries in a group of people at-risk for diabetes who were overweight or obese and presented with prediabetes and insulin resistance. A metabolically healthy control group was also included in the study for reference.Related StoriesIntermittent fasting may protect against type 2 diabetesDiabetes patients experiencing empathy from PCPs have beneficial long-term clinical outcomesNew biomaterial could encapsulate and protect implanted insulin-producing cellsUsing a randomized, controlled, acute study design, 32 adults between the ages of 20-60 years had their blood tested over a 24-hour period after eating breakfast on three separate days. The three breakfast meals were similar in calories and macronutrients, but differed in the amount of frozen red raspberries – one meal contained no raspberries, one contained one cup of raspberries and one contained two cups of raspberries.The results showed that as the amount of raspberry intake increased, individuals at risk for diabetes needed less insulin to manage their blood glucose. When two cups of red raspberries were included in the meal, glucose concentrations were lower compared to the meal with no red raspberries. The data suggests that simple inclusion of certain fruits, such as red raspberries with meals, can have glucose lowering benefits with indications of improvements in insulin responses. These effects are particularly important for people who are overweight or obese with pre-diabetes.”People at risk for diabetes are often told to not eat fruit because of their sugar content. However, certain fruits – such as red raspberries – not only provide essential micronutrients, but also components such as anthocyanins, which give them their red color, ellagitannins and fibers that have anti-diabetic actions,” said Britt Burton-Freeman, Ph.D., director, Center for Nutrition Research at Illinois Tech. “For people who are at risk for diabetes, cardiovascular disease and other health risks, knowing what foods have protective benefits and working them into your diet now can be an important strategy for slowing or reversing progression to disease.”last_img read more

VW beats forecasts in 2018 still marked by diesel fallout

first_imgRising revenue and profits despite continuing headwinds from the fallout of the “dieselgate” emissions cheating scandal helped make for smiles at Volkswagen Mammoth German carmaker Volkswagen reported Thursday growing profits and revenues in 2018, beating analysts’ forecasts despite enormous charges linked to its “dieselgate” emissions cheating scandal and headwinds from tough new pollution tests. Citation: VW beats forecasts in 2018 still marked by diesel fallout (2019, March 12) retrieved 17 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2019-03-vw-diesel-fallout.html VW sees steady profits in 2018 results Explore furthercenter_img © 2019 AFP The Wolfsburg-based group said it boosted its bottom line 6.0 percent year-on-year to 12.15 billion euros ($13.7 billion), higher than expectations from analysts surveyed by Factset.Selling 10.8 million vehicles around the world from its 12 brands brought in 235.8 billion euros, with revenues posting slower growth than profits at 2.7 percent.And operating, or underlying profit added just 1.0 percent, to 13.9 billion.”We performed very well in spite of strong headwinds,” chief executive Herbert Diess said in a statement.One major burden was the WLTP emissions tests, introduced since VW’s 2015 admission that it manipulated millions of cars worldwide to appear less polluting, .The new process’ introduction in September cost VW almost one billion euros by slowing production, a spokesman told AFP, with the effect visible in a fourth-quarter operating result 4.2 percent lower year-on-year, at 3.0 billion euros.Meanwhile the group notched up 3.2 billion euros in special items to cover costs relating to “dieselgate”, the same as the previous year.A sizeable chunk of the costs came in Germany as VW paid a group-wide fine of 1.0 billion euros, while high-end subsidiary Audi had to forfeit 800 million euros.Since 2015, legal costs, fines, buybacks, and refits to affected cars have cost VW 29 billion euros, the group said.Looking ahead, VW said it had expanded its plans for a vast array of electric models over the coming decade to 70 rather than 50, aiming to sell 22 million battery-powered cars by 2028.It hopes the offensive will help it meet strict new carbon dioxide emissions requirements in the European Union.”The share of electric vehicles in the group fleet is to rise to at least 40 percent by 2030″ with Korea’s LG, Samsung and SK Innovation and China’s CATL providing the vital battery cells to power the drive.”Volkswagen is also taking a close look at possible participation in battery cell manufacturing facilities in Europe,” it added.On a closer time horizon, VW aims for “slightly” higher unit sales this year than in 2018, with revenues “as much as 5.0 percent” higher and an operating profit margin of between 6.5 and 7.5 percent—up from 5.9 percent last year.

Scientists Find an Exceptional Specimen of a Cretaceous LizardInside a Dinosaurs Belly

first_img Image Gallery: 25 Amazing Ancient Beasts Tiny Dino: Reconstructing Microraptor’s Black Feathers About 120 million years ago, a small dinosaur gulped down a lizard, swallowing the reptile whole. The wee lizard’s story might have ended there, but the dinosaur died soon after and was preserved as a fossil. Millions of years later, paleontologists discovered the scaly meal in the dinosaur’s belly. Scientists found the lizard when they examined the fossil of a feathered dinosaur named Microraptor zhaoianus, a small carnivore from the early Cretaceous period (145.5 million to 65.5 million years ago) in what is now northeastern China. In Microraptor’s abdomen was a near-complete skeleton that the researchers identified as a previously unknown lizard species. This “exceptional specimen” paints a clearer picture of the animal diversity in this region during the Cretaceous, and it hints at what was on the menu for dinosaur predators like Microraptor, the scientists reported in a new study.

It had flight feathers on its front and back limbs, and it could likely glide or even fly, according to the study. The fossilized lizard’s skeleton was still whole and nearly complete, and it appeared to belong to a juvenile. Its position inside the dinosaur’s gut showed that it was gulped down head first, “consistent with feeding behavior in extant carnivorous lizards and birds,” the study authors wrote.

Credit: Jingmai O’Connor They dubbed the ingested lizard Indrasaurus wangi: The species name honors paleontologist Yuan Wang, director of the Paleozoological Museum of China, and Indrasaurus refers to a legend from ancient Indian texts about the deity Indra, who was swallowed whole by a dragon. Close examination of the lizard’s teeth revealed that they were widely spaced, short-crowned and nearly square. They were unlike the teeth in other Cretaceous lizards, and their unusual shape suggests that the lizard may have had a diet that differed from that of its close relatives, the scientists said in the study. Microraptor and its lizard lunch provide a rare glimpse of direct interactions between predators and prey in ecosystems that vanished millions of years ago. They were found alongside other Microraptor fossils that hold the remains of mammals, fish and birds in their bellies, according to the study. Using these fossils and others from more than two dozen animal groups, the researchers reconstructed a food web showing who ate whom in the Jehol Biota; this site in Liaoning, China — where Microraptor was discovered in 2005 — holds a diverse array of exceptionally preserved fossils dating from 133 million to 120 million years ago. The findings were published online July 11 in the journal Current Biology. Images: Dinosaurs That Learned to Flylast_img read more

US national killed in Andaman on planned adventure NCST chief

first_img COMMENT The American national killed by Sentinelese tribesmen in the Andamans last month was pursuing a “planned adventure”, the National Commission for Scheduled Tribes has said. There are many primitive tribes like the Sentinelese in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, contact with whom is prohibited for outsiders, the commission’s chairperson Nand Kumar Sai told reporters here on Tuesday.“Preliminary investigations suggest that it was a planned adventure trip by the American national, John Allen Chau. Investigation is still on,” he said. Chau, 27, was killed by the protected and reclusive tribe off North Sentinel Island after he reached there with the help of some fishermen.Access to North Sentinel Island and its buffer zone is restricted under the Protection of Aboriginal Tribe (Regulation), 1956 and under the Indian Forest Act, 1927. Efforts are on to identify other people who assisted him in his journey, Sai said, adding that so far, seven people have been arrested in the case. “Foreign nationals always had an eye on the primitive tribes of these islands and made several attempts in the past to make contact with them. We need to protect such tribes and their habitat should be completely closed for outsiders,” he said. The NCST chairperson said the incident has no link to the withdrawal of Restricted Area Permit (RAP). The North Sentinel is one of the 29 islands in the Andamans where till June foreigners had to take special permission, the RAP, before being allowed to visit them. Even though the RAP has been withdrawn, any tourist is required to take permission from the forest department and the administration of the Andamanas as the area is protected. The administration and general public of these islands should become more vigilant in view of the recent accident. The commission is taking action against the photos and videos of these tribes which have been posted on social media, he said. The tribal communities of these islands are divided into two categories, one is now part of the mainstream and the other resists contact with outsiders, and there is need to preserve the second category, Sai said. The commission has suggested setting up of a university on these islands for development and education of the tribal communities here, he added.
