For the first time since 2010, Steph Curry is preparing to play the majority of a season paired with someone other than Klay Thompson in the Warriors backcourt.Golden State’s opening-night guard tandem will be Curry and D’Angelo Russell, who he’s never played with before. So it’s time to get practicing.The pair worked out together Monday morning, evidenced by Russell’s Instagram post.
The origin of biological complexity is a major concern for believers in unguided, random processes of nature. Some recent news articles, though, make it sound easy – no problem at all. But do their theories and experiments reflect the real world?Multicellularity: “Scientists replicate key evolutionary step in life on earth,” trumpets a headline on PhysOrg based on a press release from the National Science Foundation. One doesn’t have to read far to get the matter-of-fact assertion: “More than 500 million years ago, single-celled organisms on Earth’s surface began forming multi-cellular clusters that ultimately became plants and animals.” Film at 11:00. No good novel is without a conflict, though: “Just how that happened is a question that has eluded evolutionary biologists.”Why, it’s no problem at all, announced some scientists from University of Minnesota, with NSF money in hand. Sam Scheiner of the NSF’s Division of Experimental Biology called the study “the first to experimentally observe that transition, providing a look at an event that took place hundreds of millions of years ago.” They got yeast cells to evolve into clusters so quickly it’s a wonder nobody ever thought of the experiment before. “Then came the big surprise: it wasn’t that difficult,” the article said. The clusters fragmented into sub-clusters and even exhibited division of labor, with some cells committing suicide to allow others to thrive.How did the team leap over this evolutionary hurdle? It’s elementary, as long as you centrifuge the cells for a hundred generations till they get so dizzy, they cling to one another for dear life. How that happens in nature was not explained, but “The results have earned praise from evolutionary biologists around the world.” The Scientist called it “provocative.” Why would that be? My goodness; think of the possibilities for more NSF money to centrifuge jellyfish and giraffes to see what evolves. “The first step toward multi-cellular complexity seems to be less of an evolutionary hurdle than theory would suggest,“ said George Gilchrist of the NSF, grant money in hand ready to pass around. “This will stimulate a lot of important research questions.” Indeed, “There aren’t many scientists doing experimental evolution,” the NSF said, as if that is a bad thing. Left wondering if “experimental evolution” is some kind of oxymoron, the taxpayer might be worrying that the press release will draw more research beggars to the dessicating public trough.One little problem is that if the transition to multicellularity is so easy, why didn’t it happen more often in the last two billion years? Let them ask it: “Travisano and Ratcliff wonder why it didn’t evolve more often since it’s not that difficult to recreate in a lab. Considering that trillions of one-celled organisms lived on Earth for millions of years, it seems like it should have, Ratcliff says.” And it’s not clear what this has to do with nature, wrote The Scientist, with “just one experiment under admittedly contrived conditions.” Contrived; doesn’t that word conjure up Paley’s watch and other “contrivances of nature” he argued were evidence of design? An article by Ed Yong in Nature News about this (Jan 16) revealed another tidbit; evolutionists believe yeast evolved from a multicellular ancestor. If so, the experiment demonstrates, at best, a return to a more complex past.Complex phenotypes: A paper in PNAS (January 4, 2012, doi: 10.1073/pnas.1119859109, open access) offers new insight into “understanding the development of complex phenotypic characters.” Using whiz-bang phylogenetic analysis and developmental theory, they devoted 5,000 words and 21 references to explain the evolution of – what? – color patterns on snail shells (See PhysOrg summary). Since even creationists believe these kinds of horizontal variations can occur over time, it’s not clear what the seven scientists from UC Berkeley and University of Pittsburgh intended to prove about evolution. “We infer the evolutionary history of these parameters and use these results to infer the pigmentation patterns of ancestral species,” they boasted, even though inferring what ancestral marine snail shells looked like is untestable without having the ancestors to look at. If anybody is impressed with the power of Darwinian evolution by this paper, call in.Blessed subtractions: A recently-announced explanation for the origin of complexity sounds for all the world like the joke about the salesman who lost money on every sale, but thought he could make it up in volume. Joe Thornton [U of Chicago] and his team believe complexity emerges due to “selective losses of function rather than the sudden appearance of new capabilities.” Does this imply that enough loss of function can build a giraffe from an amoeba? His subject was molecular machines in the cell, but he didn’t suggest any limits to the concept.To sell his idea on PhysOrg, Thornton awed readers with the sci-fi phrase, “molecular time travel.” By this he meant they could conjure up visions of original molecular machines before and after increases in complexity. If that didn’t sell, he had a backup plan: assert that his notion could embarrass the creationists who have long pointed to the origin of complexity as a “favorite target” to discredit evolution. According to Thornton, evolution by subtraction refutes the “irreducible complexity” argument of intelligent design:Thornton proposes that the accumulation of simple, degenerative changes over long periods of times [sic] could have created many of the complex molecular machines present in organisms today. Such a mechanism argues against the intelligent design concept of “irreducible complexity,” the claim that molecular machines are too complicated to have formed stepwise through evolution.“I expect that when more studies like this are done, a similar dynamic will be observed for the evolution of many molecular complexes,” Thornton said.“These really aren’t like precision-engineered machines at all,” he added. “They’re groups of molecules that happen to stick to each other, cobbled together during evolution by tinkering, degradation, and good luck, and preserved because they helped our ancestors to survive.”Dr. Michael Behe, author of Darwin’s Black Box where the concept of “irreducible complexity” was introduced, was very charitable in his rebuttal on Evolution News & Views. Yes; it is indeed possible that a blind man carrying a legless man can safely cross the street.Keep laughing, lovers of scientific integrity, until the charlatans are shamed out of the labs. Laughter is the best medicine. The best medicine kills germs. The germs are foolish ideas that infect scientific practice, reducing the vitality of the search for truth, replacing it with the mucus of consensus and the pus of paradigm.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Urban homesteading is a trend that is on the rise. It involves sustainable practices and self-reliance from sewing, gardening, mini-farming and preserving, which is nothing new to most farm families, but is becoming a new adventure and lifestyle to consumers sometimes many generations removed from the farm. Preservation is a big deal in the world of homesteading. This can include jams, jellies, canning, freezing and even dehydrating.Kim Scheiderer, my friend who likes to can and loves to be a homemaker, offered some tips on home preservation. First, how do you decide if you are going to freeze or can a crop? It simply boils down to a family’s taste preference. Food preservation is not hard, but it does take some organization, planning and time. For the most part, no special tools are needed unless you need a pressure cooker for specific veggies such as tomatoes or green beans. Stainless steel tools are recommended when using hot jams, jellies, other hot foods and reaching into hot water baths. She recounts a story one year when a batch of grape jelly had to be thrown out because it tasted like black plastic. Kim had used a black, supposedly heat-safe ladle, and she thinks it must have melted and blended in with the jelly. Memories are made during preservation days as well as when the family enjoys the products during the year.My memories of canning go back to eating some awesome bread and butter pickles my grandma made. No Thanksgiving or Christmas would be complete without leftover turkey sandwiches and her pickles. Believe it or not, I have never canned anything in my life. A few years ago when I arrived at a county fair to help judge 4-H projects, you can imagine my thoughts, when I was told I was judging the preservation projects. I took an immediate crash course in canning. If this is all new to you there are a couple of great resources. The standard reference for generations has been Ball’s Blue Book Guide to Preserving which is on its 37th edition. A great online reference is Ball’s website www.freshpreserving.com. OSU extension home food preservation has a website complete with pretty cool videos and local classes regarding home preservation. http://fcs.osu.edu/food-safety/home-food-preservation Happy preservation memories this summer! Kim’s Freezer Peaches6 cups sliced peaches1 cup sugar2 Tbsp. Fresh Fruit Preserver Peel & slice fresh peaches. Stir in sugar and preserver and let sit for 15 or until it makes syrup. Put desired amounts into quart freezer baggies. Freeze up to 1 year. Freezing Berries Shelly DetwilerStrawberries, Raspberries, Blackberries & Blueberries are frozen best.If you wash them before freezing, make sure they are very dry with a paper or cloth towel. Freeze on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. For strawberries, raspberries and blackberries this should be 1 layer thick. Blueberries, when dry can be thicker.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Dry weather settles in for the next 3 days. Sunshine will mix with clouds today, will dominate tomorrow, and then clouds are on the increase again for Sunday ahead of our next weather system. Temps will climber a bit, but will still be just near normal for the weekend. Our next system still is on track to move up into the state starting Monday. The origin of this storm is still the plains, and it will lift in from the south and west through Monday. A new wrinkle this morning is a move farther west of strong to severe thunderstorm action out of this circulation and a speeding up of that wave. This is only 1 model run that is suggesting that, but since we find ourselves going into the weekend, we need to address the potential. For now, we will leave our rain totals along at half to 2” combined from the 2 day event Monday and Tuesday, with coverage at 80%. However, we need to keep the door open to some changes when we chat again on Monday, which could bump rain totals significantly in Indiana, but drop them here in Ohio. Time will tell how the heavy rain and thunderstorm threat evolves Tuesday and/or Wednesday. Yesterday we thought the threat was farther east into Ohio, and later in the week, overnight Tuesday night into Wednesday. Now we are a bit concerned it hits central and northeast Indiana, and completely misses up. We feel that we need to at least address the potential for the shift of the heavier rains, even if we are not changing our forecast right now, because we are going into a weekend period, where we will not update the weather for a couple of days. So, there is some uncertainty on the strong stuff this morning, but the rain threats are still solid for the first half of the week. The map shows rain totals through next Wednesday morning. The rest of the week next week stays dry in our forecast. The extended period though looks wetter, with rain chances lingering over Indiana every day of the 11-16 day forecast period. In addition, the rains ramp up in intensity toward the end of the extended window. If this comes together as we see it right now, we should have good rains through early august. However, we are noticing that the trends over the past few days have been to take rains out of the farther out events. Next week, for example, has less coverage overall, even though we are having to extend the chances of rain farther out.
You can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs—and in the construction industry, the eggshells tend to be rather large. In fact, while the industry is most commonly associated with creation, the waste generated by both construction and demolition is a huge problem—a problem that has no easy solution. In 2015, an estimated 548 million tons of construction and demolition waste were sent to landfills in the U.S., twice as much as standard municipal solid waste. What’s more, as demand for new housing, better infrastructure, and increasingly large industrial projects grows, that figure looks set to explode over the next decade. The problem facing the industry today, particularly in light of society’s realization that sustainable systems must be implemented in order to address fast-depleting natural resources, is how to reduce and efficiently recycle the waste generated by construction and demolition activities. Dealing with the waste generated in the construction industry presents a broad range of challenges. When compared to other industries, there is little in the way of consensus on how best to deal with it.RELATED ARTICLESWaste Management for New Construction and RemodelingRecycling Expanded PolystyreneRecycling Vinyl SidingBeyond RecyclingJob-Site Recycling: Asphalt Roofing Shingles First, the sheer tonnage and the bulk associated with waste materials means they are difficult to remove from the site and the waste takes up large areas in a landfill. Second, the broad range of different materials, combined with current demolition and waste management practices, means that waste streams are often highly contaminated and difficult to separate for recycling. Finally, standard waste management and recycling systems are simply unable to process the toxic elements found in the debris. While many think the waste generated by the construction and demolition industry is simply an inevitable consequence of building, others are beginning to look for more sustainable solutions to address the growing issue of waste. Or, to put it more precisely, rather than attempt to address the problems posed by existing systems, many are attempting to guide the industry to adopt and entirely new approach. Today, the concept of the circular economy is gaining traction in construction and demolition circles, and despite the many challenges associated with its implementation, I and others hope that it can drastically reduce the amount of waste generated even as the industry continues to grow. What is a circular economy? Put simply, the circular economy aims to replace existing take-make-waste systems that extract resources for use in current industrial models with a circular system that designs out waste and pollution, keeps products and materials in use, and regenerates natural systems. Its overarching goal is to redefine growth by decoupling economic activity from the use of finite resources and by placing value on waste as a commodity in itself. The circular economy identifies both technical and biological cycles; consumption occurs only in the biological cycle with the use of biodegradable materials that are fed back into the system through composting. The technical cycle on the other hand, recovers and restores products and components through reuse, repair, remanufacture and recycling. How can the construction industry move forward The circular economy concept has an extremely broad reach. In fact, it is designed to replace the foundations of our existing economy with a theoretical and practical approach that can be transferred from industry to industry. What does this mean in real terms for the construction and demolition industry? And how can a circular economy begin to tackle the huge amounts of waste produced annually? As previously mentioned, the industry needs to move away from extraction, production, use, and elimination (often in landfills), towards valuing waste as a resource. This can be achieved in a number of ways: Source reduction: Reducing the volume of new materials should be a priority. Examples include preserving existing buildings, optimizing new build sizes, and prolonging the life of buildings. Salvage and reuse: While salvage and reuse are already a part of the construction and demolition industry, new ways to repurpose and upcycle materials should be considered. Waste separation: Waste that cannot be used must be efficiently separated and transported to the correct recycling facilities for processing. Recycling: Recycling materials to be reused in the construction and demolition industry or in other areas should be improved, with new processes designed specifically for the construction and demolition industry. The future of the circular economy in construction While improving the efficacy of the above elements is a key step in pushing the construction and demolition industry towards a circular economy, the future promises to a provide even more opportunity. The circular economy is, essentially, a designed system, and in order to build a truly circular construction and demolition industry, new materials, tools, and systems that are designed to prevent waste should be a priority. Today, there are many innovative approaches that aim to help the construction and demolition industry become more circular. These include: New materials: The use of concrete in construction is highly polluting. New, less toxic and more easily recyclable replacements must be designed. Today, various biodegradable materials such as hemp and mycelium are being trialed. The same goes for other unsustainable construction materials such as sand. New building design: Designing buildings to make use of natural, biodegradable resources such as straw, soil, and bamboo as a core material will enable the C&D industry to move away from unsustainable materials such as concrete. New construction methods: New construction methods that make use of modular building elements that can be used multiple times will enable easier repurposing and reduce the energy required during construction. New waste management: The separation, logistical management, and recycling of materials can be streamlined and improved through the use of technology designed to make on-demand collections and insightful waste diversion metrics easier to access at all stages of the construction or demolition process. New legislation: Government must begin to create new laws that support and subsidize these innovations. While it is clear that there are many unique challenges facing the construction industry in a wholesale adoption of a circular economy, these changes are possible and entirely necessary. In a world where climate change is a real issue and stocks of non-renewable resources are quickly being used up, the construction and demolition industry will need innovative approaches to controlling waste. This fact, along with the huge volumes of waste generated by the industry, means that adopting exiting circular economy concepts and designing new systems that allow the industry to become more circular are crucial to its continued growth. Adam Pasquale is the co-founder and chief operating officer of Recycle Track Systems, Inc., a waste management and recycling company.

Lakshmi’s NTRTwitterRam Gopala Varma conducted a survey to know the feeling of viewers on the delay in the release of Lakshmi’s NTR in Andhra Pradesh and 74 per cent of the viewers say they are angry and sad.Amid huge hype and expectations, Lakshmi’s NTR was released in a large number of screens across the globe on March 29. But the TDP-led government got its release delayed in Andhra Pradesh till April 15, claiming that it shows Nara Chandrababu Naidu in a bad light and it will affect the voters in upcoming general elections in the state. However, some viewers from AP went to other states to watch the film.Three days after it hit the screens, producer Rakesh Reddy and his legal team knocked the doors of the Supreme Court seeking to revoke the stay on the release of Lakshmi’s NTR in Andhra Pradesh. But the court declined to immediate hearing of this case and this news came as big disappointment for the audience, who are desperately waiting for its release in the state.A day later, Ram Gopal Varma informed that the AP distributors, who feared of suffering losses from Lakshmi’s NTR, were moving the High court on April 2. The director tweeted, “All Andhra Pradesh distributors led by producer/distributorNatty Kumar are moving High court against the stay on #LakshmisNTR because of huge losses for them.”On April 2, Ram Gopal Varma tweeted a picture featuring the empty roads in the state and wrote, “AP people got upset because of delay in #LakshmisNTR release and boycotted his roadshow.”Going a step further, Ram Gopal Varma held a poll on his Twitter account, asking his followers, “Are you people in AP feeling angry and sad about delay of #LakshmIsNTR?” He gave two options like yes and no. This 24-hour-long survey has attracted 16,476 votes in just four hours and 74 percent of these voters say that they are sad about the delay in its release.” Lakshmi’s NTR legal teamCollage of photos taken from TwitterRam Gopal Varma’s Twitter poll also received 1,069 likes, 206 replies and 136 retweets in four hours. An upset fan named Santhosh (@Santhos10413947) replied to the director, “It’s really dumb that the government is stopping the release of lakshmi’s NTR in Andhra, I mean they are afraid, it clearly shows.”Many filmgoers are hoping that Lakshmi’s NTR will hit the screens in the state at least in the coming week. There is no clarity on whether the Supreme Court and the High Court have heard the pleas of its producers and distributors. Ram Gopal Varma is yet to provide clarification on its release in the second week.
