first_imgRyan Lonergan in action for Rovers.ROAD TO AVIVA: Letterkenny Rovers player Ryan Lonergan has enjoyed a sensational season at full-back, so much so that he has been nicknamed ‘Cafu’ by his teammates. Lonergan’s raiding runs down the flank, combined with his defensive solidity have drawn comparisons to the Brazilian legend!His consistency has ensured he has received glowing plaudits during an already historic campaign for Rovers. However, the former Glencar underage starlet feels his teammates can go all the way, and believes if they play to the ability their capable of, it could be a dream weekend for all involved with the Cathedral Town club.Lonergan told Donegal Daily, “It’s been a dream season for everybody, we’ve had a long tough season.“The lads call me Cafu, but I think I’m more like Philip Lahm to be honest!“But all those nights getting the legs ran off us on the track at the Community Centre by Liam O’Donnell, will be all worthwhile when we get to run out at The Aviva on Saturday, it really is a dream come true for us. “We’ve worked so hard all year for this competition, it’s the one we targeted, and to see the buzz it’s generated it’s easy to see why.“We targeted a run in this competition, and seven games and eight months later we’re in the final at the Aviva.“We’re operating at the highest level possible for us at Intermediate level, and it’s just amazing to be involved.”There’s a huge buzz around Letterkenny, the main street has black and white flags draped from top to bottom, and in every shop window there’s good luck signs for Eamon Mc Conigley’s troops.Lonergan said, “The buzz around the place is unreal, it means so much to so many people, men that have been involved in the club for 54 years, they’re just so happy, and it’s fantastic to see. “But we want to win it so badly, and we’ll be doing everything we can to make sure we bring that cup back to Letterkenny.”Rovers have played 9 games in national competitions and will play at least 11 before the season is out, it’s been some run, but Lonergan hopes the best chapter has not yet been written.“It’s going to be amazing to play at the Aviva on Saturday, but we want to win, and if we do, we’ll make history and it’ll be the greatest day in the club’s history.“Crumlin are a top-class side, they’ve been there and done it, but hopefully we can do the business on Saturday.” ROAD TO AVIVA: LETTERKENNY’S ‘CAFU’ RYAN LONERGAN HOPING TO MAKE HISTORY was last modified: May 12th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare 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:CafunewsRoad To AvivaRyan LonerganSportlast_img read more

first_imgA couple years ago economists at UCLA’s Anderson Forecast floated their housing price bubble theory, which has hovered over the residential real estate market ever since. Last week the economists took some air out of it. It seems that the market, at least in Southern California, continues to show surprising strength. And UCLA’s forecasters are not the only ones saying it. A senior Wells Fargo economist agrees; so do some analysts, and numbers for November. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals Michael Bazdarich, a senior Anderson economist, summed up the bubble thusly: “I think it’s fair to say our forecast for the housing market is for a soft landing. I don’t see any weakening in the local markets yet.” This stance got a lot of attention. But it really was not that new. After its initial call, UCLA still used the word bubble on lots of occasions. But when forecasters explained the position in detail, there was no claim that prices would fall off a cliff, at least in Southern California. Appreciation rates would slow and sales would cool. And that’s happened in some places, like Orange, San Diego and Ventura counties. Other areas, including the San Fernando Valley, are still seeing healthy rates of appreciation, which just about everyone who tracks the market finds surprising. The Valley’s median single-family home price hit a record $600,000 for the third time this year. A year from now it will likely be higher, but by how much is the question. A legitimate concern looms, though, and it starts materializing next year. A lot of the recent buying activity, at least in high priced Southern California, came courtesy of adjustable rate or interest only loans. “The first act of a five-act play will start playing out in the housing market,” said Scott Anderson, a senior economist for Wells Fargo, who believes that the Southern California residential real estate market has longer legs than some others. He notes that nationally, 66 percent of the subprime loans made last year were two-year adjustables and 19 percent were three-year adjustables. Subprime home loans are made to less credit worthy buyers. Some of them will be facing higher payments throughout next year. “I don’t know if a lot of people are prepared. If they bought the highest priced house they could afford, are they going to be able to afford those (new) payments?” he said. That could lead to a spike in inventory or foreclosure activity. Demand could then flatten, as well as prices. Market analyst Nima Nattagh also points out that housing price appreciation has been running well ahead of income gains. And this, too could pose a problem. He also said the relationship between home loan debt service and prices is a fairly worrisome level. “This is not going to be sustained, and the prices will have to correct themselves. The issue is when is that going to happen?” Nattagh wonders. That sounds bad, and it could be for recent buyers, especially those using creative financing or speculating on big appreciation gains continuing. The experts say this market is still in for a soft landing. But that also means it’s likely the big money, in terms of equity growth, has already been made. Gregory J.

first_imgSpectacular setting for some wonderful musicThe first Donegal Chamber Music Festival will be held in the grounds of Glenveagh Castle this summer from May 30th – June 1st.Glenveagh was chosen as the location for the music festival for its idyllic lake, garden and mountain setting, which will compliment the fine music.Two evening concerts will be presented in the Castle drawing-room. The Friday concert will feature local and international instrumentalists with guest flautist Sarah Murphy. Sunday’s concert will performed by the Donegal Camerata String Quintet. Glenveagh’s intimate drawing-room has limited space, and concert guests have to be conveyed to the Castle by minibus from the Visitors Centre, therefore, patrons are advised to book early. There will be two concerts on Saturday.A free lunchtime concert in the nearby Glebe Gallery will be given by the Junior String Orchestra of the Donegal Music Education Partnership, and an afternoon ‘Coffee Concert’ in the Glenveagh Visitors Centre, featuring Donegal Chamber Orchestra, with guest singer Dominic Mac Giolla Bhríde.The ‘Coffee Concert’ will include music by Bartók, Britten, Hindemith, and Tchaikovsky, as well as traditional Irish songs accompanied by the orchestra.Tickets can be booked in advance only, and booking is essential.

first_imgDonegal Sinn Féin Senator Pádraig Mac Lochlainn has again appealed to the Government to put in place a redress scheme for the thousands of Donegal families affected by mica defective concrete blocks in their homes.He raised the matter again in the Seanad today with the Minister of State for Housing, Damien English.Senator Mac Lochlainn said: “The long delayed report of the Expert Panel on these defective concrete blocks was published last June. A year behind schedule. Another year of anguish and distress for the thousands of affected families across Donegal and Mayo. “While the terms of reference set by Government for that report were limited, it is clear that the findings and recommendations point to the failure of this State to ensure that concrete blocks, the core component of the family home in Ireland, were manufactured to a safe standard. The failure in State regulation also extended to building control standards and legislation.“In other words, this State failed so many families in Donegal. Families who had undertaken the largest financial outlay in their lives, the mortgage or loan for their family home have been left badly exposed. Therefore the State has to step up and support these families to make their homes safe with a redress scheme as was the case for the families in Dublin and North Leinster affected by pyrite in their homes a number of years back.“I am deeply disappointed and frustrated by Minister English’s response today. These Donegal families have lost another year already with the delay in publishing the Expert Panel report. Another four months later and we still have no financial relief for those families.“It was very telling today that when my colleague, Mayo Sinn Féin Senator Rose Conway Walsh asked Minister English whether he has sought a line in the upcoming budget to ensure financial assistance for the affected families, he avoided the question. “The Government need to do the right thing and they need to do it now. They need to deliver fairness and justice for families, whether they live in Dublin or Donegal and Mayo.”Featured image by Brian McDaid shows crumbling blocks from a Donegal home.‘Donegal families need a Mica Redress Scheme now’ – Senator Mac Lochlainn was last modified: September 27th, 2017 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:MICASenator Padraig Mac LochlainnSinn Feinlast_img read more

first_img(Visited 491 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 To know the vast improbabilities, and yet to leap over them with imaginary stories – that’s deceiving the public.Suppose an unlucky soul has to win a thousand powerball lotteries to pay his debts, but tells his creditors, “Well, it could happen.” Does a person like that deserve credit? And yet our federal space agency, NASA, fully aware of the difficulties of getting life to ’emerge’ by chance, talks like that. Let’s see what an entry in NASA’s Astrobiology Magazine admits about the difficulties they face:Life relies on the intricately folded amino acid chains known as proteins for practically every chemical task. Proteins catalyze chemical reactions throughout the cell, stitch RNA strands together, transport molecules around the cell and control what enters and leaves through the membrane. A modern cell cannot be a cell without them.However, proteins pose a problem for scientists who study the beginnings of life. Present-day proteins have had the benefit of billions of years of evolution. They are highly specialized and, compared to most molecules, they are enormous. The odds of such lengthy amino acid chains forming “out of the blue” in life’s primordial soup are beyond astronomical.“Beyond astronomical.” Think of it: astronomical odds are hard enough, but ‘beyond astronomical’ is, for all practical purposes, miraculous. It’s nice of NASA to admit that, but the admission doesn’t go far enough. One must visualize analogies like “The Amoeba’s Journey” from Illustra Media’s film Origin to even begin to grasp just how ‘beyond astronomical’ this ‘problem’ is. Illustra’s animation is only for a 150-amino-acid protein, much smaller than the average length of proteins in living cells. Can anyone think of a phrase for “beyond ‘beyond astronomical’”? That’s the challenge for those who insist on limiting their scientific explanations to chance and natural law.Our unlucky soul, before being tossed out the creditor’s office door (or window), might try some fast talking. “Actually, I can imagine some scenarios where I might actually win a thousand powerballs, but I would have to start simple. I can show this in a computer simulation. In my simulation, after I win the first one, I could use my winnings to buy more tickets for the second one. The second winning ticket might be naturally selected to win the third, and the fourth, and so on. Eventually I could get to my goal step by step. Looking back after billions of years of lottery evolution, it would look like a miracle, but it was really very natural. If you just will loan me more money, I can demonstrate this with my computer simulation.” This is exactly how NASA leaps over ‘beyond astronomical’ in a single bound.To help answer these questions, Andrew Pohorille, senior astrobiologist at the NASA Ames Research Center, and his colleagues have been running computer simulations of hypothetical ancient proteins. In a paper published in the journal Life in June 2017, they detailed two unconventional protein structures that could have been useful in primordial cells.While most modern proteins are rigid, specialist molecules with complex structures, these hypothetical early proteins would have been more flexible, but less efficient and precise, Pohorille argues.“These were the handymen of proteins,” Pohorille says. “In the beginning evolution did not require the high level of precision that we have now.”Can anyone doubt that the allusion to Genesis, “in the beginning,” represents a religious speculation equivalent to a miracle? There are numerous problems with this fast-talking excuse:Do “computer simulations” substitute for physical reality? No.Do “hypothetical ancient proteins” substitute for empirical evidence in the lab? No.Do “unconventional protein structures that could have been useful” substitute for real protein structures? No.Do speculations about proteins being more flexible amount to laboratory evidence? No.Do “flexible, but less efficient and precise” proteins escape error catastrophe? No.Do any proteins we know of get built without ribosomes? No.Do naturally-produced amino acids come in single-handed forms? No.Did evolution ever not require a high level of precision? No.Does calling a protein a “handyman” endow it with powers to create handy things? No.The storyteller deserves to be tossed out onto the curb before he opens his mouth, but NASA lets him talk. Pohorille endows his “strange, new protein” that is “very unlike proteins seen in modern cells” with seemingly magical powers. Like the Cat-in-the-Hat, his magical protein cleans up all the problems just as the parents walk in the door.This strange, new protein could do an important job and remain functional despite mutations, and it was small enough that something like it could have plausibly formed on the early Earth without billions of years of evolutionary fine-tuning.Pohorille continues, talking about how ‘short’ proteins can do all kinds of wonderful things. He fails to acknowledge, though, that it can only do these wonderful things in cells with thousands of other large proteins. The most basic ‘primordial’ cell must have genetic codes, machinery to read them and convert those codes into proteins, and machines to capture nutrients and convert substances into energy. That energy must be directed for metabolism and many other functional requirements. See the basic needs of a ‘simple’ cell in Illustra’s animation, “How to Build a Cell.” His perhapsimaybecouldness index skyrocketing, Pohorille chatters on:To form a stable tunnel through the membrane, these proteins have to form a stable tunnel through the membrane that can be opened and closed to molecular traffic. The cell membrane is 18 to 20 amino acids wide; anything smaller won’t span the entire barrier. However, when Pohorille and his colleagues simulated the structures of channels formed by a 16-amino-acid-long protein called antiamoebin, which is presumably too small to span the cell membrane, they found that clusters of these short proteins could form channels of a different nature. These channels were unstable, constantly shifting, and would sometimes close and then reopen, but they were large enough to let potassium and chloride ions through, as well as water molecules.This speculation fails to recognize the role of transport proteins: to control what goes in and out.  An unguided pore through a membrane is likely to swamp the cell with useless or toxic substances, by the laws of osmosis. It would have no ‘selectivity filter’ to go against the concentration gradient. Nor would it have energy from ATP, requiring the complex ATP synthase motors, to power the channels. As a result, potassium and chloride ions and water would go the wrong way through the membrane, and the ‘primordial’ cell would quickly die. But even in his wildest imagination, envisioning short proteins with “candidate structures” able to perform a few tasks, Pohorille knows better. He knows he wouldn’t have life.“Many people think of the origin of life as a problem in organic chemistry: how to make this or how to make that,” says Pohorille. “I could give you all these molecules, and you will still not be able to make life. The essence of life is that you have a number of functions, and these functions are capable of working in concert.”This is like the debtor admitting in the end that there’s no way he can pay. And yet NASA willingly shells out more dough for him. We learn in the last sentence, “Pohorille’s work was supported by NASA Astrobiology through the Exobiology & Evolutionary Biology Program and performed at the NASA Ames Research Center and the Pittsburgh Supercomputer Center.”That’s your taxpayer dollars at work, folks. Are you angry yet? It is ‘beyond astronomical’ to imagine why anyone would give this program a penny. These storytellers deserve something far worse: shame and reproach by the scientists who respect real empirical evidence for things. Maybe even jail time for promoting fake science with taxpayer funds.last_img read more
