5 Florida residents who traveled to China test positive for coronavirus, governor says

first_imgWPTV Reports:GADSDEN COUNTY, Fla. — Gov. Ron DeSantis said five Florida residents who recently traveled to China have tested positive for coronavirus and are being quarantined.The governor didn’t specify where the residents are being quarantined.“They’re not going to be released from quarantine until they test negative,” Gov. DeSantis said on Thursday at the Gadsden County Sheriff’s Office. “We don’t anticipate that having any impact on the people actually living in Florida.”In addition, the governor said an elderly Santa Rosa County man has presumptively tested positive for coronavirus, or COVID-19, in a state lab. That positive test still needs to be confirmed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.Gov. DeSantis said the man, who’s over the age of 70, had severe underlying medical conditions.“He had been doing international travel,” the governor said. “He’s not in shape to fully answer all the questions, so there’s an investigation ongoing.”Gov. DeSantis added that the coronavirus risk to Floridians remains low, and the federal government is working to provide more testing kits to the state to screen patients for the virus.“As of right now, our testing is being done in three local areas. We have Jacksonville, we have Tampa, and we have Miami,” the governor said. “They have tens of thousands [of tests] that will eventually be en route. We don’t have them yet. We’d like to get them as soon as possible.”State officials said people who are elderly, frail, or have underlying medical conditions are most at risk of coronavirus.“That is overwhelmingly the audience, the groups, that is most susceptible to COVID-19,” the governor said. “If you’re somebody that has a real serious condition already, you should it view it differently than if you’re 25 years old and don’t have any problems.”To date, the CDC has only confirmed two cases of coronavirus in Florida: a Manatee County man in his 60s, and a Hillsborough County man in her 20s.For questions related to coronavirus in Florida, contact the Department of Health’s COVID-19 Call Center by calling 1-866-779-6121.

Leafs know the Hawks will have some serious revenge on their minds Friday in Nelson

first_imgNelson started early and never let up on the Hawks, gaining a little revenge from an 8-2 shellacking the Leafs took at the hands of Beaver Valley the first time the teams met this season.“The boys just came in that night prepared and they were ready to battle,” Soles said. “They put in a solid effort the whole game . . . I only had about 15 to 20 shots the entire game.”The romp over Beaver Valley is part of a five-game win streak the Leafs have managed to put together in the latter part of October.The streak has put Nelson into sole possession of first place in the Murdoch. But the Leaf players realize both the Castlegar Rebels and Hawks are right behind and there’s a lot of hockey remaining in this season before the division champ is crowned.“It’s a long season but we’re starting to come together and that’s been the key of late,” Soles explains.Nelson, 11-5-1, has a day off before hosting Sicamous Eagles to complete weekend action at 2:30 p.m. in the NDCC Arena.Meanwhile the Hawks return home to meet the same Eagles Saturday.The Rebels host Grand Forks Border Bruins Friday and Spokane Braves Saturday. The Beaver Valley Nitehawks franchise takes great pride in being the best.So when a team comes into Hawks Nest and pounds the home squad into submission — 10-3 — there’s bound to be a little payback.Which is why the Nelson Leafs knows only too well there had better be no slow start when the Hawks invade the NDCC Arena Friday night for a Kootenay International Junior Hockey League showdown.“We know they’re going to come out hard and battle,” said Leaf goalie Brett Soles about the upcoming Murdoch Division clash.“It’s going to be a big game because (Beaver Valley) is right behind us in the standings.”last_img read more

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! LANCASTER – Colleagues say Antelope Valley High School special education teacher Kathleen Astourian has a passion for teaching, motivates her students to learn, and serves as a mentor for fellow teachers and staff. Astourian has developed specialized programs for her students, works on their weaknesses and encourages their strengths, and sets their goals high enough so they are adequately challenged while remaining cognizant of their abilities. Astourian, who has worked five years in the Antelope Valley Union High School District and teaches students with moderate to severe disabilities, was named the district’s 2006 Teacher of the Year on Monday at the district’s employee recognition ceremony at the Essex House. “I think what I enjoy most are my students and them seeing their achievement,” said Astourian, 28. “I love them and knowing they will be members of society like everyone else.” A graduate of Quartz Hill High School, Astourian is the daughter of a Northrop Grumman aeronautical engineer and a mother who worked in accounting and then stayed home when she entered high school. Astourian obtained her bachelor’s degree in liberal arts studies with emphasis on special education from San Diego State University. She received a master’s degree in special education from California State University, Bakersfield. Astourian said she had intended to become an elementary school teacher but changed her mind after working as an aide at a private special education school while in college. “That’s where I found my love for special education students. My heart went, ‘This is where I want to be,’” Astourian said. “A small stride for them, what we would equate to a degree, to them is monumental. That was exciting to me that I had a part in achieving that.” At the employee ceremony, Astourian was described as abiding by the special education adage of “students first, disability second” and balancing fun with learning. “She’s just fabulous,” said Mary Allen, one of Astourian’s instructional aides. “She’s very calm. Everything that happens in the classroom she relates to life. She transitions kids to college. We take them out to work.” Allen added, “Her room is the first room where I heard a kid say, ‘inappropriate.’ They knew what it meant.” Another aide, Karla Smallwood, said, “She raises that bar, and they come up to it.” Astourian lives in Littlerock with her husband, Eric, and their two children, a 7-year-old daughter and a 3-year-old son.

Evolutionist Trains Toddler to Adore Darwin

first_imgMarc Hauser is an evolutionary psychologist at Harvard who believes human morals and language evolved from ape-like ancestors.1  He was interviewed in Current Biology,2 and asked the usual question – and gave the usual answer with a surprising personal twist:When my youngest daughter was about three years old, I pulled a cheap trick on her, teaching her that whenever I asked “Who’s the man?”, she should reply “Darwin!”  She does this quite well now.  It is hard to imagine any living biologist not thinking that Darwin IS the man, and I am certainly no different.  But I have a different hero, and for a slightly different set of reasons.  The man is Noam Chomsky.  Like Darwin, Chomsky raised a set of questions that literally turned around a discipline, and opened the door to several new disciplines….Noam Chomsky is the influential professor emeritus of linguistics at MIT, an avowed anarchist with openly anti-American views.  This issue of Current Biology appeared, coincidentally, the day before America’s Independence Day holiday, commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence.  That document established a new political philosophy on the doctrine of creation.  Jefferson, writing for the 52 American colonial leaders who signed, held it as self-evident that all men are created equal, and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.  The belief that rights and liberties originated in God meant they were not fluid or societal, as evolutionary theory would teach, but eternal and inviolable.1See these previous entries about Marc Hauser: 01/20/2004 on monkey grammar, 09/01/2005 (bullet 3) on chimpanzee psychology, 10/27/2006 (bullet 7) on his book Moral Minds, 05/09/2006 (commentary bullet 16) on his section of an anti-ID anthology, and 11/05/2006 again on his book Moral Minds.2Marc Hauser, Q&A, Current Biology, Volume 17, Issue 13, 3 July 2007, Pages R491-R493,doi:10.1016/j.cub.2007.04.012.3The last question in the interview was whether scientists have any obligation to the public at large.  Surprisingly, Hauser expressed angst about the vanity of it all: “I worry that my work is about as important as Greek translation is to our well being as a species… I often feel like the post-dinner entertainment, perhaps marginally better than MTV.”  But then he said he does feel a sense of obligation, “not only because they are footing the bill through taxes, but because no human being should be allowed to live in today’s world without an education in the sciences.”  The discussion moved from the futility of relativism to moral fervor.  He ended with a sermon: “As scientists, we must educate.  We must step out of the university and into the public arena, taking every spare moment we have to ‘preach’ our passion.”  But is it just animal passion, or is it a concern for some unvarying truth?  And how would an evolved animal know the difference?  Those follow-up questions were not asked.Of all the insipid, egregious, gratuitous, disgusting cases of Charlie worship we’ve seen over the years (and we’ve seen a lot), this one takes the cake.  Some rabid evolutionists think it is child abuse to teach children to pray and love God.  Well, get a load of this!  Darwinites, are you proud of what your comrade-in-arms has done?    He takes his precious, helpless little daughter, who doesn’t know her right hand from her left, and indoctrinates her in the worship of Charlie Buddha.  Before she has even heard of kindergarten, he trains her like the monkeys he works with to perform a conditioned response on cue.  Imagine a father doing that about any other scientist – Newton, Maxwell, or Einstein – and it would seem really quirky.  But Darwin?  The guy who did nothing more than liberate the world from scientific rigor and responsibility (12/22/2003 commentary)?  If you think we exaggerate when we say the Darwinites literally worship their Big Daddy (07/18/2006, 02/13/2004 commentary), well, you’ve just seen it with your own eyes.    Pray for this poor little victim.  Undoubtedly Marc will teach her growing up what he teaches his students, that all morals are relative, and that ideas about right and wrong are mere evolved antics we passed along from our ape-like ancestors.  We hope little miss Hauser grows up wisely to find the truth.  But if some day as a young adult she flips out and indulges her sexual fantasies in perverse ways, bringing shame on the Hauser home, neither Daddy nor The Man will have any authority to say she shouldn’t have (see footnote 3, above).  After all, it’s just a conditioned response.(Visited 12 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Brain Secrets Seen Through a Glass Darkly

first_imgThe brain drain, the importance of forgetting, and other secrets of the “supremely complex organ” come to light.The Apostle Paul compared the promises to the reality of what we will be like in heaven as “seeing through a glass, darkly” (I Corinthians 13:12, KJV). What are neuroscientists to make of a three-pound mass of tissue inside our skulls? Nature published a special issue on the brain this week. Here’s what the lead-up article says:In the hand, the human brain is a jelly-like mass, easily deformed by touch. However, its unassuming appearance belies the complexity within. The brain’s inner workings are mysterious. But our understanding of them is improving, as is our ability to apply that knowledge elsewhere.The journal Nature always puts a materialistic spin on its science, expecting to believe that this complex organ arose by mistakes because of the Stuff Happens Law. The actual data behind the science, however, speaks for itself, and gives brain users glimpses of the powers granted to them.Meningeal lymphatic vessels at the skull base drain cerebrospinal fluid (Nature). This paper by Ahn et al. describes newly-identified pipelines out of the base of the skull that regulate cerebrospinal fluid. “Basal mLVs [meningeal lymphatic vessels] have distinct morphologic features and an anatomic location that is more suitable for CSF [cerebrospinal fluid] uptake and drainage than dorsal mLVs,” they say. So how did these “specialized morphologic features” arise? They don’t say. As Marcos Eberlin, author of Foresight, would say, the specialized features had to be planned for this function from the beginning.The forgotten part of memory (Nature). You should be glad you forget things, says Lauren Gravitz in this Outlook article for the series. “Long thought to be a glitch of memory, researchers are coming to realize that the ability to forget is crucial to how the brain works.” Gravitz summarizes recent findings that show that forgetting is not a mistake or a defect, but a feature. The brain actively works to forget. This is important, or else we would remember irrelevant details about events. We know that in embryonic development of hands, certain enzymes cut away the webbing between fingers by causing cell death, so that the final hand forms properly. Just as non-webbed fingers have more mobility and flexibility, perhaps something like that occurs in memory formation. Specialized neurons and neurotransmitters prune away non-essential details, allowing the brain to form generalized memories that will be useful in novel situations.In a similar way, if a person were to remember every detail from an event such as a dog attack — that is, not just the sudden movement that scared the dog at the park, causing it to snarl and bite, but also the dog’s floppy ears, the colour of its owner’s T-shirt and the angle of the Sun — it might be more difficult for them to generalize across experiences to prevent themselves being bitten again in the future. “If you wash out a few details but retain the gist, it helps you to use it in novel situations,” Richards says. “It’s entirely possible that our brain engages in a bit of controlled forgetting in order to prevent us from overfitting to our experiences.”So who or what wrote the software to give our brains this automatic pruning ability that helps us understand the world? Unfortunately, because intelligent design thinking is forbidden in Nature, somebody comes up with just-so stories to justify the ideology, “If it exists, it must have evolved.”In the past decade, researchers have begun to view forgetting as an important part of a whole. “Why do we have memory at all? As humans, we entertain this fantasy that it’s important to have autobiographical details,” [Oliver] Hardt [McGill University] says. “And that’s probably completely wrong. Memory, first and foremost, is there to serve an adaptive purpose. It endows us with knowledge about the world, and then updates that knowledge.” Forgetting enables us as individuals, and as a species, to move forwards.“Evolution has achieved a graceful balance between the virtues of remembering and the virtues of forgetting,” [Michael] Anderson [Cambridge] says. “It’s dedicated to both permanence and resilience, but also to getting rid of things that get in the way.”But what is knowledge, if it only has an adaptive purpose? Does Hardt believe in the evolutionary myth of progress, when he says something “enables us as individuals, and as a species, to move forwards”? Forwards to what? Who is the spirit of Evolution that, to Michael Anderson, achieves a balance, and thinks it is graceful? What is virtue? Hardt and Anderson need to forget Darwin and think more clearly.It’s not the skull shape that matters. It’s the contents.Neanderthal clues to brain evolution in humans (Nature). A scan for actual facts supported by data in this article shows that modern humans and Neanderthals are the same in terms of brain power. But urged on by Darwinian myths of progress, Sedeer el-Showk is determined to find evolution anyway. “As close relatives, Neanderthals offer an unequalled opportunity to uncover how modern humans probably evolved.” Probably? Has el-Showk calculated the probability for a mass of 100 billion neurons with a trillion connections organized to think and control a complex body to emerge by the Stuff Happens Law? Obviously not. Are there any facts to support his faith? No; only questions.Researchers cannot study the brains of Neanderthals directly — the species is thought to have been extinct for around 40,000 years, and soft tissue doesn’t fossilize well. But from preserved skulls, scientists have been able to infer that adult Neanderthals had brains of a similar volume to those of modern humans, but with a more elongated, less globular shape. Finding out when this anatomical difference becomes apparent during brain development could provide a clue as to which aspects of brain development are unique to humans. “We’re trying to find out what evolved last,” says Gunz. “What is the most recent innovation in our brain?”Chuck-in-the-Box pops up in unexpected places.Evolution, evolution, evolution. Another Darwinist named Ponce de Leon tries to find the fountain of youth in Neanderthal brains. “Many features of the human brain and its development have deep evolutionary roots and are shared with Neanderthals,” says Ponce de Leόn. With that deep, deep thought, does he elevate Neanderthals to human-hood? No; he demotes us to Neanderthal-hood. “Humans are not as exceptional as they perceive themselves to be.” Except for evolutionists, with their Yoda complex.The brain makes no sense in evolutionary terms (even if the Stuff Happens Law, natural selection, worked), because it would only build the minimum necessary for survival. In an interview with Marvin Olasky aired on World Radio July 25th, Dr Ben Carson made this comment:I’ll tell you as a neuroscientist you cannot overload your brain. It is absolutely impossible. Your brain can easily contain all the information from all the volumes ever written since the beginning of the world and have plenty of room left over. So it’s just not an issue.Why would evolution build such a superlative organ with vastly more capability than it would ever need? Only intelligent design by an awesome God can explain such wonders. We are “over-designed” for survival, and wonderfully designed for fellowship with our Maker.Can we please just enjoy our God-given brains without having to drag Darwin into the scene? These Darwinians need a little more of Darwin’s horrid doubt (i.e., that if our brains are evolved from monkeys, they would not be reliable). The rest of us can marvel at all the foresight and planning that went into the most complex piece of matter in the known universe.

High energy! — Fission around the bend (GC1NGRD) — Geocache of the Week

first_imgWhat one of the geocache hiders, Hockeyhick , has to say:I have always been a fan of thought-provoking puzzles, and geocaching certainly gives us all a chance to stretch out our brains as well as our legs. Additionally, my wife, Kerry (Cache-n-Kerry) cling to the mantra that a quality cache should either take you somewhere really cool, consist of a really cool puzzle, or a really cool container!To be truthful, my inspiration for this cache humbly came from my good friend, Mike Sherwood (MSWahoo). He travels a lot for his job, and as a result, shares many tales of cool caches that he has found. He told me of the really cool hides that he found belonging to a cacher named Dayspring. After hearing about some of his caches, I wanted to try to give geocachers in our area some cool caching experiences, too. Having an electronic engineering background, a twisted sense of humor, and a shop full of “toys,” the sparks rally began to fly in the Hockeyhick Labs!The original cache began as a 4-inch PVC pipe with the electric motor/gearbox inside, but sadly, someone decided that they wanted it more than I. After consulting with the property owner he encouraged me to make one that would be little more permanent than before. The housing is an electrical enclosure mounted to a fence post, with the pipe exiting the bottom, and a more maintenance-free motor doing the work inside. Adding in some limit switches has really helped to keep it running smoothly over time. Over all, it took about a weekend to build, but I tested it a lot, with various weights and conditions because I didn’t want to disappoint folks that come through the Upstate of South Carolina and detour just for this cache.The results have been well received, and the real pleasure for me, as the cache owner, comes when we get those extremely nice email notifications! Knowing that our cache has brought so many smiles to fellow cachers gives great satisfaction. Also, we have seen that when you think that you have seen it all, someone else raises that bar a little bit higher, and in our area, that is no exception. We have since seen incredible cache ideas as a result, and they make me want to get even more creative!Photos:Huzzah!

They are patriotic, support the military. … They understand their platform can be used to make the country a better place.”Lockhart insisted there will be no “leaguewide directive” for future demonstrations.“This is an issue that should involve the owners of the 32 clubs, the coaches and players to work out together,” he said. “There is very regular dialogue going on between the players, coaches and owners. This is an issue that has sort of gripped the headlines. We all care very deeply about this.“All of our owners don’t always agree with even each other, and the players often have a position at odds with the league, and we work hard to resolve those,” he added. “We have been united on this issue. They are all pulling in the same direction, but we understand each locker room is different.”ADVERTISEMENT View commentslast_img read more

Vine: Duke’s Justise Winslow High-Fived A Guy In An Ohio State Shirt After An And-1 During Today’s Game

North Carolina won 79-73.(Photo by Grant Halverson/Getty Images)No. 4 Duke routed Clemson 78-56 at Cameron Indoor Stadium this afternoon. Freshman forward Justise Winslow was a force for the Blue Devils, scoring 20 points and grabbing 13 rebounds. In the first half, Winslow racked up 17 of his points. He was unstoppable in the open court, and on one occasion, he converted a fast break bucket and was fouled. That’s where things got interesting. Take a look at the shirt on the fan Winslow celebrates with. It’s an Ohio State shirt.An OSU shirt in Cameron is a random sight. Perhaps the man was just at the game with friends who are Duke fans, and he decided to mesh with the crowd and root for the home team. Either that, or he’s a legitimate Duke supporter, which makes him an exceptionally fortunate college sports fan who has seen a wealth of success from his favorite teams this century.last_img read more
