The “Un-Scopes” trial of the decade is underway in Kansas, and the world press is watching. Unlike the 1925 Scopes trial, this time evolution is the leader and intelligent design is the contender: actually, not even that – the leaders of the ID movement are not asking for ID to be taught, but only for criticisms of Darwinism to be permitted in the classroom. With a majority on the board favoring changes to the science standards that would allow a “teach the controversy” approach, the Darwinians are on edge about a near-certain defeat. They are boycotting the hearings which resemble a court trial with lawyers for and against. Here are some of the stories in the news so far. Stay tuned for the outcome of this debate that will probably influence the positions of other state school boards.New York Times article (as analyzed by Discovery Institute)Wichita Eagle: Evolution players set out positions.Kansas City Star: Intelligent design theory argues for a designer of life.MSNBC: Witnesses criticize how evolution is taught.MSNBC: The evolution of a fight to the end.CNN: Evolution hearings open in Kansas.Science Daily: Teachers, scientists lead evolution fight.Lawrence Journal-World: Scientists: Board of education can’t determine evolution issue.Washington Times op-ed: Debating Darwinism.World Net Daily editorial: Explosive memo reveals Darwinist strategy for Kansas.Insight on the News (UPI): Evolution dispute continues.In addition, more news outlets are reporting related stories about creation vs. evolution, such as:California Agee: Intelligent Design theorist [Behe] challenges DarwinismAgape Press: Parent Sues Evolutionist, Claiming She Defames Him in Anti-Creationist Article.MSNBC: The stirring on the mount (how a creationist is using Mt. St. Helens to support Biblical geology)Kentucky Post: Creationism facility here on a mission (Answers in Genesis creation museum)All the proposed changes to the science standards, along with other news and related articles, can be found at the Kansas Science 2005 website.Things are shaping up for a battle of wits, facts and propaganda to engage the national attention. Best be well armed: get out that Baloney Detector and recharge the batteries. Notice what is not said as much as what is said. Try to look long and hard for the Darwinists to answer the claims about fossils and molecular machines – not with bluffing and redefinition of science, but with real, hard evidence. It looks like they’re not up to it, so they are going to stick to their tactic of scaring citizens with the big lie that anything other than 100% pure Darwinism is bad for the economy (see 04/21/2005 and 04/29/2005 stories). Don’t believe it. Families will probably flock to a state that doesn’t cram Darwin down their children’s intelligently designed throats, and will bring their dollars with them. Industry wants young people with “analytical thinking” skills, they say? Good: teach them to analyze the controversy over Darwin. ID arguments are “faith-based” they say? No faith is as diehard as Charlie worship (see 04/30/2005 commentary). It’s noteworthy that more and more news sources that were previously hostile are starting to take a second look at ID and creation science and giving them serious consideration. Can the monolithic liberal Darwin Party Big Science Empire stand up to all this scrutiny? No matter how big the Goliath, it had better beware any stripling who knows his weapon, knows his target, and knows how to connect them. That’s all the majority any intellectual battle needs.(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest A new Purdue Extension publication examines the causes and effects of pesticide drift.Pesticide drift occurs when chemicals used to manage weeds or insects are blown or carried off target by wind during application, posing a potential risk to people, animals and plants on neighboring properties.Pesticide drift can happen in both residential and agricultural settings and under all types of weather conditions, even if wind speeds are low, said Fred Whitford, director of the Purdue Pesticide Programs and one of the authors of Options for Dealing with a Pesticide Drift Incident.“Whether it’s a next-door neighbor or a farmer who owns the field adjacent to your property, they have the legal right to apply pesticides to their property,” Whitford said. “However, pesticide applicators also have the legal obligation to keep those products on their side of the property line.”According to the publication, some crop damage attributed to drift might be the result of other factors, such as insect infestations, plant diseases or weather conditions. The authors say it is important to find out what actually caused the damage before reporting a possible drift incident.“Purdue Extension educators can help you determine the cause of injury symptoms,” the publication says. “The educators will look for any possible explanations for the damage, including nutrient deficiencies, insect, weed and disease problems, improper planting and cultivation practices and environmental conditions.”Readers will also learn about the steps for reporting a possible drift incident and what actions could be taken if a drift incident is confirmed.Whitford’s co-authors are Michael O’Donnell, an Extension educator in Delaware County; Roy Ballard, an Extension educator in Hancock County; and Joe Becovitz, an agent with the Purdue-based Office of the Indiana State Chemist.The publication can be downloaded as a free PDF from Purdue’s The Education Storeat https://edustore.purdue.edu/item.asp?Item_Number=PPP-110#.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest 180306_RyanMartinWet snow showers are moving across the state for the first part of today, but we should see some improvement by this afternoon. Clouds will dominate the region today, and cold air is not going anywhere, so we won’t rule out some wet snowflakes here and there this afternoon, although the most organized action is going to be off to the east.Cold air will be the main feature of the rest of the week. That cold air mixes with a little bit of moisture coming in from the NW tomorrow, and will trigger some light snow and flurry action statewide. We look for 70% coverage, and there is the potential for a coating to an inch or two of general accumulation, while north central and northeast parts of Ohio can see 2-5 inches due to lake effect and enhancement. The snows for midweek look better here than to our west, and that is a testament to the cold air that sits over the top of us. Wednesday will likely be a day with some travel and weather challenges. Temps will struggle to break the lower 30s tomorrow, Thursday and Friday over nearly all of the state. Only far south central Ohio has a chance to run toward 40. Thursday we should see sunshine reappear over western Ohio areas, but we stay chilly right on through Friday.Our next system is still on track for the start of the weekend. However, it is coming a little faster, and we see precipitation breaking out early Saturday morning over the southwest areas of the state. The heaviest rains will be in far south central Ohio, near the river, where we can see up to a quarter of an inch. The rest of areas that see scattered showers will be more like a few hundredths to a tenth or to. The closer you get to I-70, the lesser chance of rain we have Saturday, and north of I-70, we should stay dry. Another surge of rain brings up to half an inch of moisture to southeast Ohio Sunday, but the rest of the state just features a mix of clouds and sun.Dry weather remains in our forecast for next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Next thus day we start to see some light precipitation come in from the west, the likely leading edge of our system for the 16th. Moisture totals do not look all that impressive yet, but we expect the system to strengthen. For the rest of the extended period, moderating temps are expected with normal and above normal temperatures in for most of the second half of the month. We continue to watch a system for the 20th and 21st, where we can see some rains of half to 1 inch at least. Strong southwest flow in the extended 11-16 day forecast window will lead to a slightly higher chance of stormy weather.
Drinking water systems serving 19 million Americans are contaminated with highly toxic chemical compounds called PFAS as the number of locations where pollution has been found continues to grow, according to a new report from the Environmental Working Group. As of March, at least 610 locations in 43 states were known to be affected, including water systems, military bases, airports, and firefighting training sites. When last updated in July 2018, the list included 172 sites in 40 states, less than one-third the total of the most recent total. Linked to a variety of health issues, the chemicals are perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl, manufactured since the 1940s and used in a variety of consumer products including non-stick pots and pans, food packaging, firefighting foam, and waterproof clothing.RELATED ARTICLESCoal-Fired Power Plants Are Polluting Groundwater: AnalysisIs Your Drinking Water Safe?Should You Worry About PFOA in Your Water?Nitrate Taints Drinking Water of Millions, Study FindsThe Takeover of the EPA The information has been compiled on an interactive map by EWG, a nonprofit environmental advocacy group headquartered in Washington, D.C., and the Social Science Environmental Health Research Institute at Northwestern University. EWG said the new list draws on data from the federal Safe Drinking Water Information System, the Department of Defense, and from news reports collected by Northwestern. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency phased out some types of PFAS once used in products like Scotchgard and Teflon, called PFOA and PFOS, when they were linked to cancer, thyroid disease, and other health issues, EWG said. Those compounds were replaced by PFAS with slightly different chemical makeups that were not adequately tested for safety before they went on the market, the group said, and they now can be found in the blood of virtually all Americans. Michigan appears to be the unlucky winner with the most known pollution sites, 192 in all. California is next with 47, and then New Jersey with 43. Impact on drinking water is only a guess EWG’s report estimates that the drinking water of 19 million people might be compromised but acknowledges that’s only a guess. Although public water systems know how many homes and businesses they serve, they don’t necessarily know how many people live or work there. The total, however, could be much higher. “An EWG analysis of unreleased EPA test data estimated that more than 1,500 drinking water systems, serving up to 110 million Americans, may be contaminated with PFAS chemicals,” the report says. According to the EPA, the chemicals are found just about everywhere — in food packaged with materials that contain PFAS, in stain-resistant and water-resistant fabrics, waxes, paints, in the workplace, and in living organisms. PFOA and PFOS are both “very persistent” in the environment and in the human body, the EPA says, and because they don’t break down they can accumulate over time. In February, the EPA announced an action plan for dealing with PFAS. Among the steps the agency said it would take were developing a “maximum contaminant level” for PFOA and PFOS, making interim groundwater cleanup recommendations, and expanding scientific research. EWG said that the EPA’s approach would only make the problem worse because it did not stop the introduction of new PFAS chemicals, end the use of PFAS in products that many Americans use, or clean up contaminated water supplies. Scott Faber, the senior vice president for government affairs at EWG, said, “Once again, Donald Trump has demonstrated that he is the nation’s first pro-cancer president.” EPA says that the new map could be misleading After reporting on EWG’s new survey, the Huffington Post received a statement from the EPA saying the map showing PFAS pollution sites could be misleading. “Because EPA has not fully reviewed the quality of the underlying data, and based on the agency’s commitment to good risk communication with the public, EPA cannot recommend the map be used to determine where public health risks associated with PFAS chemicals may or may not exist,” the statement said. The agency pointed to a health advisory for PFOA and PFOS of 70 parts per trillion that it issued in 2016 and said its “robust efforts” were reflected in its action plan. Legislation introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives last month would force the EPA to set legal limits on PFAS in drinking water within two years, a step the EPA’s action plan did not include.
Learn how to archive and share your projects with the helpful Adobe Premiere Pro Project Manager.You can do a lot with Adobe Premiere’s Project Manager. You can easily collect and copy all of your assets to pass off to a client or a fellow editor, or consolidate one of your projects to save space on a full hard drive. Whatever the situation, the Project Manager is a helpful tool. Let’s take a closer look at the various features of the Premiere Pro Project Manager by going step by step through the process of saving a project to share with another editor. Step 1: Choose Your Sequence(s)You can find the Project Manager at the bottom of the File menu. First, at the top of the Project Manager dialog box you’ll notice the Sequences area, where you can specify individual sequences you would like to include in your archive.Let’s say we’re archiving this project for another editor, and they only want to work on our Timelapse sequence, which consists of one video and one audio clip. Simply select the Timelapse sequence and deselect all others.Step 2: Select How to Manage the Resulting ProjectYou have two options under the resulting project section — you can Collect Files and Copy to a New Location, or you can Consolidate and Transcode. I want to hand off all of the assets in their original format, so I’ll select the Collect Files and Copy to a New Location option.With Consolidate and Transcode, you can choose to actually render out your original content to a new format. You can transcode Sequences or Individual Clips, and you have a variety of different format and preset options available to you when going this route. But again, we’ll stick with the Collect Files and Copy to a New Location option.Step 3: Customize Your OptionsThe Project Manager offers you a number of options when archiving your projects.Exclude Unused Clips: Use this feature when you only want to include the media used in your selected sequences.Include Handles: When utilizing the Consolidate and Transcode option, you can choose to include frame handles on each clip which will provide room to add transitions or retime clips.Include Audio Conform Files: You can choose to include audio conform files or just re-conform them later on.Convert Image Sequences to Clips: A nice feature, the Project Manager can instantly convert image sequences to clips.Include Preview Files: You can choose to include preview files, or re-render them from your archived project.Rename Media Files to Match Clip Names: If you’ve spent time renaming clips in your project, it’s nice to be able to change the name for your archived project.Convert After Effects Compositions to Clips: If you choose to Consolidate and Transcode, you can have the Project Manager convert After Effects comps to clips.Preserve Alpha: Another feature available with the Consolidate and Transcode method, preserving alpha is important if you’re passing a project on to another editor or if you’d like to make changes in the future.Step 4: Destination Path and Disk SpaceOur final step includes selecting a location for our archived project. After you select a destination, the Project Manager will show you the disk space available. You can click on Calculate to find out the estimated size of your archived project, as well as the size of the original project.After you’ve finished the archive, open up your Premiere Pro project file in the archive and take a look. Make sure you have everything you need before you hand anything off or go deleting original projects.I hope you enjoyed the tutorial, and be sure to check out PremiumBeat for high-quality royalty free music and sound effects for all of your media and video projects.Got any helpful Premiere Pro workflow tips?
