Olaf has a vision for the studio and the ability to make it happen. We are recording church groups and rappers and it’s exciting to be a part of this state-of-the-art recording studio.”Brown told the Rotarians that he grew up in Los Angeles, the son of a German father and a Spanish mother, so a lot of languages were going on in his home and music was a part of his life.“When I was three years old, I was entertaining in my home,” he said. “When I was five, I grabbed a stick and was doing renditions of Elvis. Then, I was into rock ’n roll. In 1979, my family was converted to Christianity. I had not heard gospel music until then.”Brown said, when he attended a Pentecostal church, he was hooked on the music.

Breanna Stewart

first_imgYou may not be familiar with the name Breanna Stewart.  She plays basketball for the University of Connecticut.  The Cicero North Syracuse High Schooler is a 6’4″ player for U Conn.  Her goal is to win 4 national championships while attending U Conn.  She is well on her way because she already has 2 under her belt.In last years championship game, she scored 21 points in the win against Notre Dame and was named the MVP of the tournament.  She is a very versatile player for the Huskies.  She can play any position from point guard to center.  Her 7’1″ wing span means she can block shots with relative ease.  She also can use either hand very efficiently.Currently, U Conn is ranked #2, but if you are inclined to bet on sports activities I would say that placing a small wager on U Conn to win again this year is a pretty good bet with Stewart leading the way.last_img read more

No spectators at Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games torch-lighting ceremony – organisers

first_imgBy Karolos GrohmannATHENS, Greece (Reuters) – The Tokyo 2020 Olympics torch-lighting ceremony in ancient Olympia will be the first in more than 35 years to be held without spectators, after organisers yesterday introduced tighter measures to protect against the coronavirus.Greece’s Olympic Committee said spectators would be excluded from both the dress rehearsal at the ancient site tomorrow and the widely broadcast ceremony on Thursday.This is the first time since the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics that the ceremony will be held without any spectators lounging on the grassy slopes of the ancient stadium in the tiny Peloponesian hamlet. The ceremony – held both for summer and winter Games – usually attracts several thousand spectators, including Greeks and foreign visitors.“The lighting ceremony of the Olympic flame will be done without the presence of spectators and only 100 invited and accredited guests,” the Greek Olympic Committee said in a statement.“The dress rehearsal on March 11 will be closed to spectators and media.”The Olympic torch will be lit in Olympia at a scaled-down ceremony on March 12 before a seven-day relay that culminates with a hand-over ceremony in Greece on March 19.The number of people inside the ancient stadium will also be reduced with only a few dozen representatives of the Tokyo Games from a group of about 150 allowed access to the ceremony.Organisers will also shut the press centre following the ceremony to avoid the gathering of many people in an indoor area and will stage tomorrow’s dress rehearsal without the presence of media. Tokyo had already stopped 340 children from attending.Greece on Sunday announced a two-week ban on sporting events with spectators and on school field trips, as its number of coronavirus cases rose by seven to 73. The prefecture of Ilia, of which Olympia is part, is among areas of the country hardest hit by the coronavirus.The Mayor of Olympia has written to International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach, proposing the postponement of the ceremony until May.“The danger of staging the torch-lighting with only a handful of spectators, a limited number of officials and delegations, and under a cloud of fear and concern will damage the greatness and prestige of this event,” Olympia mayor Giorgos Georgiopoulos said in his letter.“With a sense of responsibility, the municipal authority – all parties of the city council of Ancient Olympia – in order to secure the global radiance of the event, asks the IOC which has the exclusive responsibility of organising it to consider the possibility of moving the torch-lighting ceremony to May of this year.”last_img read more

Finidi Makes Case for Mikel as Eagles Face Prospects of Tough…

first_img“Personally, I don’t know the situation concerning his availability, but he is a respected captain and if his current form is okay, then it’s a plus for the team. He doesn’t need to play all qualifiers for him to have the opportunity to join the team.“He could be with the team even if he doesn’t get 90 minutes in all games; he could just help them in team building because he is a player other colleagues respect and the young ones will learn from.“But as a coach you need to speak to him before the tournament and clarify his role in the tournament to avoid a possible burst up and if he agrees then for me it will be a massive boost for the country in Egypt,”Finidi told AOIFootball.com.Mikel last played for the Super Eagles in Nigeria’s 2-1 loss to Argentina at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. The 31-year-old former Chelsea star did not feature in any of the qualifiers as Nigeria returned to the continent after a six- year wait.Meanwhile, the Super Eagles are pitched against Senegal or Tunisia in the Pot 1 of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations draw ceremony scheduled to hold on Friday. Eagles are certainly going to face a former champion of the competition in the group stage.The seeds for the draw were released at the weekend showed Nigeria on the second tier of the seeding.The seedings were based on performances of qualified teams at the 2013, 2015 and 2017 finals as well as the in the qualifying tournaments for 2015, 2017 and 2019 and the March 2019 FIFA rankings. After winning the 2013 edition in South Africa with Late Stephen Keshi in-charge, Nigeria failed to qualify for the 2015 and 2017 edition.There are six teams in each pot. Nigeria along with Morocco, DR Congo, Algeria, Mali and Guinea belongs to the second pot. It means that these teams will not be in the same group for the final competition.Nigeria, like the other teams, will draw one opponent from each of the remaining three pots.

Genetic Subcode Discovered

first_imgComputer programmers know all about subroutines.  One master program can easily call other programs, which can return results back to the master program.  That’s very 1960s.  Today’s modular software responds dynamically from disparate sources and responds to feedback from embedded triggers.  They can call routines written in other codes or languages.  We’re beginning to find that the genetic code is also far more advanced than the 1960s image of DNA to RNA to protein – the Central Dogma, as it was called.  Now, researchers in Europe have uncovered “novel sequence biases and their role in the control of genomic expression.”    Science Daily reported on work from the Computer Science Department of ETH Zurich and the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics.  Researchers there have been chasing “possible sub-codes in genomic information.”  One of the problems with the Central Dogma was understanding how translation is regulated.  Cells need to respond quickly to stimuli and risks.  What determines which genes are switched on and off, and the rate at which protein products are produced? The researchers from ETH and SIB now identified a new sub-code that determines at which rate given products must be made by the cell.  This information has several interesting implications.    First, it provides novel insights into how the decoding machinery works.  Secondly, and more pragmatically, it makes possible to read information about gene expression rates directly from genomic sequences, whereas up to now, this information could only be obtained through laborious and expensive experimental approaches, such as microarrays.  “A cell must respond very quickly to injuries such as DNA damage and to potent poisons such as arsenic.  The new sub-code enables us to know which genes are turned-on quickly after these insults and which are best expressed slowly.  One benefit of this study is that we now can get this information using only analysis of the coding sequence,” said Dr. Gina Cannarozzi.The insight into an additional level of genetic information stored in sub-codes can also provide a new look at the translation processes in the ribosome, the article said.  It can help scientists understand how the ribosomes “know” at what rate to recycle their transfer-RNAs (tRNA) to achieve optimum rates of protein synthesis.The article said nothing about evolution.  Surprised?  Of course not.  If mutations were marginally tolerable in the days of the Central Dogma, they are going to be much tougher now that we know the genetic information system involves codes within codes and hierarchical levels of information.  Darwinists will deal with this like they always do: by pumping out more Central Fogma.**Fogma (n): Dogma so thick you don’t even realize it’s there unless you’re outside it (05/14/2007 commentary).(Visited 12 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Limpopo youth cricket club winning at sport transformation on the field

first_img10 May 2016A small amateur cricket club in Limpopo is changing the game for the region’s kids on the field. Meet the Oaks Cricket Club. A new documentary and crowdfunding project takes the story of this positive community project to the world.Established in 1996, inspired by the South African cricket team’s successes after re-admittance to the international game, the Oaks youth cricket team started out small and humble in the village of Ga-Sekororo, part of the Maruleng district, with only rudimentary equipment and makeshift playing fields.Coach Cavaan Moyakamela, an alumni of the team, tutors and guides disadvantaged boys and girls between the ages of 14 and 19 from townships on the basics of cricket, instilling a love for the intricacies of the game, and gives them the opportunity to take their minds off their daily hardships.Moyakamela told community newspaper, Letaba Herald that the club priority has always been to create a safe, fun environment for the local youth, while offering an opportunity for the kids to learn about fitness and healthy living, but also gain discipline and respect that team sport offers.The club currently provides cricket training to over 80 kids, and despite the massive financial and social challenges they face, the team has progressed from strength to strength, playing against other school teams in the region with great success, creating an enthusiastic buzz amongst local residents.With the help of an award-winning filmmaker and a local journalist, the club is now eager to tell the world its story in an effort to create awareness for the power of grassroots sport initiatives and earn some much needed sponsorship. The money will be used to improve the club’s playing fields, buy new equipment and take its members on national tours to play against other youth cricket teams.South African Film and Television Award winning producer of local film hit Dis Ek, Anna, Niel van Deventer, and Letaba Herald journalist, Hendrik Hancke, have begun the Field of Dreams initiative as a way to generate interest in the club. They also seek financing and sponsorship for the documentary, which highlights the club and its rich history.While the story of the Oaks has now become legendary in the Limpopo province, inspiring local businesses and individuals to play their part in the form of sponsorships and other support for the club’s teams, Hancke and Van Deventer have now released a trailer for the documentary-in-progress on YouTube to gain wider exposure for the team. They have also started a crowdfunding project on Indiegogo’s Generosity fundraising website.The initiative has even caught the attention of former Proteas bowler Meyrick Pringle, who tweeted support of the club’s plans.Let’s help raise some funds. Inbox me please. https://t.co/n2iTdeK1fa— Meyrick Pringle (@MeyrickPringle) May 6, 2016While funds raised so far have been small, including donations from as far as New Zealand and the UK, the initiative hopes that as the story of the club’s success and contribution to the community spreads, the more funding will follow. The first part of the plan is to send the club on their inaugral national tour, to play youth teams in Eastern Cape over the next year.Watch the documentary trailer here and visit the Field of Dreams Generosity crowdfunding page for more information.last_img read more
