Carl Hayman – Toulon, Newcastle and New Zealand

first_imgTAGS: Newcastle Falcons CH: I used to have a fear of sharks, but that was from watching too many Jaws movies when I was young. I’ve been surfing for ten years so I’ve got over that.RW: Do you surf in Newcastle?CH: There’s a group of boys who try to get out in the North Sea when we have time off, although thick wetsuits are key.RW: If your house was on fire, what three things would you save?CH: Apart from whoever else was in the house, if I was going for personal items it would have to be this old sweatshirt I like to wear. It’s from where I was born and has a ‘Surf Highway 45’ emblem on it. I’ve had it for ten to 12 years, but it’s still in one piece. It was a dark green but is heading towards a lighter shade of grey. After that, I’d save my computer because it’s got all my photos on it and my last item would be my wallet.RW: What would you do if you were Prime Minister for the day?CH: Look at MPs’ spending! A day’s not long enough to make too many changes so I’d probably just enjoy cruising around in all the cars and helicopters – making the most of that.RW: Who’d you like to be stuck in a lift with?CH: Out of interest, Arnold Schwarzenegger. He’s had an interesting life, going from films to politics, so it would be good to have a chat. I’m a big fan of his movies and the cheesy one-liners he comes out with. He’d also be able to rip the doors off and get us out.RW: What would you like to achieve outside of rugby?CH: The plan when I finish rugby is to start farming. I’d like to have a self-reliant lifestyle with a veggie garden and all that carry-on.Check out his profile for New ZealandWeird, yet funny interview… LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Carl Hayman leading the HakaRugby World caught up with the famous All Black while he was still at Newcastle Falcons to talk about pre-season training, the ‘pain train’, and living the ‘Good Life’ after rugby. RUGBY WORLD: So how has pre-season training gone?CARL HAYMAN: We trained with the local American Football and basketball teams. It’s good to keep things varied. The American Football guys were good on footwork, changing direction and so on. It gives you a different perspective. I certainly learned a few things.RW: There’s a lot of changes in the Falcons squad – is everyone settling in well?CH: Because there are a lot of new guys it makes it easier – everyone is in the same boat. With 15-odd new players, even for the guys already here it’s almost like starting over again.RW: Are you enjoying the role of captain?CH: It’s reasonably new to me, but I’ve enjoyed it so far. It presents its own challenges, but with the amount of new guys coming in, it’s a fresh start for the Falcons and I’m excited about it.RW: You’ll be looking for a better start than last season…CH: Hitting the ground running is crucial. We’ve got to get points on the board early. I hope we don’t leave it until February to start playing good rugby.RW: Are you now used to the Geordie accent?CH: I realised I was used to it when Jimmy Gopperth couldn’t understand a few locals and I could. I’ve even started picking up a few Geordie words. My vocab’s been extended! I use things like ‘Howay man’ – I’m not sure what the local boys think.RW: What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen on the pitch?CH: Off the top of my head, Tim Swinson running up the pitch last year shouting: ‘Here comes the pain train’. The funniest thing about it was that he was just chasing up a kick! He received a bit of ribbing about that.Phobias, Terminator and Life after rugby…RW: If you could have one superpower, what would it be?CH: Flying. I’d start off by flying to training to beat the rush hour and work my way from there. It would make the game quite interesting – no one could tackle you.RW: Do you have any phobias?

I.D. vs. Evolution Rhetoric Continues Unabated

first_imgThe surge in articles and editorials about intelligent design vs. evolution, prompted by President Bush’s remarks (08/13/2005) often seems to track the political philosophy of the person or group: Republican vs. Democrat, conservative vs. liberal – but not always.  Recent salvos:Irish Scream:  Bill O’Reilly had Dr. Richard Sternberg on his O’Reilly Factor show on Fox News Aug. 24 (see Washington Post background story and Discovery Institute fact sheet).  O’Reilly was clearly animated over the “brutal” tactics of the “fascist” anticreationists as Sternberg described how he was treated at the Smithsonian for allowing an I.D. paper to be published.  With incredulity expressed in two-hand gestures, O’Reilly asked “Why?” they were doing this to him.Concerned Women for Human Events:  The debate over ID was discussed both by Concerned Women for America and Human Events, which reprinted David Limbaugh’s essay (see below).Larry King Jive:  Larry King moderated a heated discussion between pro-ID panelists John MacArthur, Jay Richards and Senator Sam Brownback, and anti-ID panelists Barbara Forrest, Depak Chopra and Senator Christopher Shays.  Larry King’s opening questions seemed off point.  The first thing out of his mouth was asking MacArthur if he believed the earth was only 5000 years old, and then asking Forrest if we came from monkeys, why there are still monkeys.  Both respondents seemed to wonder what those questions had to do with the item under discussion.  The anti-ID side seemed the most intent on making their case that ID isn’t science, while MacArthur wondered why evolutionists seem to be in such a panic over the obvious evidence for design.  Jay Richards stuck to his guns that the Discovery Institute does not advocate mandating ID, despite Forrest’s persistent attempts to prove that ID people are religiously motivated.  Chopra, who accepts ID as a source of consciousness, was more vicious against MacArthur than the evolutionists.  Senator Brownback calmly asked that the nation engage in a vigorous discussion over evolution, bringing the best arguments together.  Let’s identify facts that are facts and theories that are theories, he repeated.Frist in Line:  Senator Bill Frist (R-Tenn), though recently breaking ranks with the President over stem cell research, announced his agreement with Bush over intelligent design in an AP story (see MSNBC News).  Frist has an M.D. from Harvard Medical School.  He said that exposing children to both views “doesn’t force any particular theory on anyone.  I think in a pluralistic society that is the fairest way to go about education and training people for the future.”  The article mentions a voice from the other political persuasion: Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean called President Bush “anti-science” over his remarks.OhIDo:  Governor Bob Taft of Ohio, a Republican, threw his hat into the ID ring, according to the Chillicothe Gazette.  He’s not sure what intelligent design means, but at least feels students ought to be able to hear criticisms of Darwinian evolution.  The “teach the controversy” approach will provide the best compromise, he feels, between opponents who have differing ideas of how evolution should be taught.Dykstra’s Law:  David Limbaugh answered the critics who called him an idiot for this editorial, proving that everyone is someone else’s weirdo.Hidden Motives:  Why did Science reproduce the following quote without comment?  Utah state senator D. Chris Buttars, in a USA Today editorial August 9, said, “The trouble with the ‘missing link’ is that it is still missing! … The theory of evolution … has more holes in it than a crocheted bathtub.”Who Speaks for Space?  In an ostensibly nonpartisan editorial on Space.Com, SETI Institute Director of Education and Public Outreach Edna DeVore spoke out against the President’s remarks.  Though written as the statement of a scientific rather than political organization, and quoting the positions of scientific societies, DeVore nonetheless employed arguments common to liberals: “Teaching creationism is in violation of the separation of church and state, and has been ruled illegal by the US Supreme Court in several cases.”  DeVore mentions in passing that Bush’s remarks have generated about 120 reactions per day in print since he spoke in favor of intelligent design August 2.Name-Calling:  William Safire in the New York Times looked at the scorn heaped on “creationism” in a brief and simplistic history of anti-evolutionism, and quoted several vehement anti-ID polemics, mostly liberal but with one conservative joining the scorn fest.  Noting the new attack word “neo-creo” invented by anticreationist Philip Kitcher to counter the “marketing genius” of the label “intelligent design,” Safire left his own views unclear.  He gave the last word with a Nobel laureate at Brown University, Leon Cooper: “If we could all lighten up a bit perhaps, we could have some fun in the classroom discussing the evidence and the proposed explanations — just as we do at scientific conferences.”Getting Warmer:  The New York Times printed two more articles on the intelligent design controversy Sunday and Monday.  Though the articles still lean heavily against I.D., the Discovery Institute president Bruce Chapman gave them credit for making progress on toning down their bias.  He thinks the articles have gone from 90% negative to about 60%.Separate, but Equal?  Lee Harris at Tech Central Station wrote a long essay that basically takes a “non-overlapping magisteria” position, hoping peace will be attainable if Christians throw creationism overboard and stick with theology, and science leaves them alone with their beliefs.  He calls Darwinism part of the “normal science” consensus of our day.Censorship:  The conservative internet news source World Net Daily has published an issue of its Whistleblower Magazine devoted to the issue, entitled, “Censoring God: Why is the science establishment so threatened by the intelligent design movement?The pro-I.D. Discovery Institute, on its Evolution News blog, keeps harping on reporters to get the definition of I.D. right.  I.D. is not about supernatural design, but about intelligent design.  The I.D. movement remains agnostic about the designer.  Slowly, some reporters are getting their wording right, but many, like the New York Times, keep defining I.D. in sentences like, “[intelligent design claims that] some organisms are too complex to be explained by evolution alone, pointing to the possibility of supernatural influences.”  The wording should be, according to a Discovery Institute statement, “certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause, not an undirected process such as natural selection.”The wording may seem subtle but is significant.  Anti-ID reporters are determined to portray intelligent design as inherently religious, so they employ the word supernatural to make their point: “See?” they gloat, hammerlocking their straw man;  “This can’t be science, because it’s about the supernatural!”  But if the reference is to intelligent causes, those are already employed in scientific explanations in many fields.  Science can investigate whether the cause was planned or unplanned without making any statements about who the Planner was or what the motive for the design was: this is done all the time in archaeology and criminology, for instance – even in SETI itself, which makes DeVore’s position all the more ironic.  Caught in a logical trap, all she can do is fall back on arguments from authority and bandwagon.    It’s good that evolution and intelligent design are getting debated in public more and more these days, but not all comments are well reasoned or informed.  Some writers who think with their gall bladders instead of their cerebra are saying the most bile things.  Investigating I.D. with uninformed prejudice, they ask, “what’s that awful smell?”, unaware it is their own breath blowing back in their face.  Their acerbic remarks may some day come back to sting them when the Darwin idol, like that of Saddam Hussein in Baghdad, falls and is dragged around the scientific square by cheering, liberated minds.(Visited 11 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Another Evolutionary Statistic Is Wrong

first_imgMarine invertebrate diversity has not increased dramatically over time, contrary to conventional wisdom.  That’s the conclusion of a team of 35 researchers who spent a decade analyzing seashell fossils from around the world.    Science Daily reported the story July 7.  A week later, on July 14, Science Daily reported a follow-up story, entitled, “Disproving Conventional Wisdom On Diversity Of Marine Fossils And Extinction Rates.”  The later article featured John Alroy (UC Santa Barbara), the principal author of the paper published in Science.1  “There’s been 36 years of people arguing about this,” he said.  “And I feel we finally resolved this debate, which is certainly one of the most high profile debates in the study of diversity of the fossil record.”  95% of the fossil record consists of marine invertebrates (see ICR claim).  The abstract says,It has previously been thought that there was a steep Cretaceous and Cenozoic radiation of marine invertebrates.  This pattern can be replicated with a new data set of fossil occurrences representing 3.5 million specimens, but only when older analytical protocols are used.  Moreover, analyses that employ sampling standardization and more robust counting methods show a modest rise in diversity with no clear trend after the mid-Cretaceous.  Globally, locally, and at both high and low latitudes, diversity was less than twice as high in the Neogene as in the mid-Paleozoic.  The ratio of global to local richness has changed little, and a latitudinal diversity gradient was present in the early Paleozoic.The team painstakingly catalogued 248,816 fossils from around the world and found that things that paleontologists have been saying for 40 years may not be accurate.  Diversity reached saturation early after the Cambrian and Ordovician and remained flat, with minor excursions, over the remaining eras.    The new database suggests that there were only three, not five, mass extinctions.  The number of species recovered quickly, they said.  The sixth and last presumed extinction never happened, they claim, based on their results.    Another researcher explained the utility of the project.  She said, “If we know where we have been, we know something about where it will go.”1.  Alroy et al, “Phanerozoic Trends in the Global Diversity of Marine Invertebrates,” Science, 4 July 2008: Vol. 321. no. 5885, pp. 97-100, DOI: 10.1126/science.1156963.It’s good to know where you have been.  Where you have been, though, does not necessarily predict where you will go.  Do these researchers know the answer to such questions?    Statistics can be misleading.  Good for them that they went at it in much more detail than in previous studies.  They have falsified claims going back four decades.  That does not ipso facto “truthify” their own claims.  Because their work has an incestuous relationship with evolutionary geology and biology, any conclusions borne out have a statistically high likelihood of dementia.(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Gallery: The top tourist attractions in tiny Gauteng

first_imgThe diversity in South Africa’s Gauteng province belies its small size. Known for its work-hard mentality, it also offers a wealth of things to do and see for fun. Local and international travellers will be more than spoilt for choice. The Nelson Mandela Bridge in Braamfontein has become an iconic landmark of Johannesburg’s skyline. (Image: South African Tourism, CC BY-2.0, via Flickr)Compiled by Mary Alexander and Priya PitamberIt’s September. It’s spring in South Africa – and Tourism Month, celebrated this year with the theme “Tourism for All”. To inspire your next road trip we bring you nine galleries, one for each province, showcasing our country’s remarkable beauty and diversity.A thriving tourism industry means South Africa is closer to achieving its National Development Plan goals of skills development and creating decent employment through inclusive economic growth.Travel is also about exploring your own back yard. Through its Sho’t Left initiative, South African Tourism encourages local holiday travel. It helps to make planning a holiday easier with choosing, budgeting for, booking and paying for a trip, and more.Gauteng confirms that dynamite comes in small packages. The tiniest province of the country, taking up only 1.4% of land area, it is home to the country’s eclectic economic hub, Johannesburg, and the capital city, Pretoria. But it also offers a range of unforgettable leisure experiences for any traveller.Between Johannesburg and Pretoria in Midrand, the Nizamiye Turkish Masjid is a majestic structure. It is the first Ottoman-styled mosque in the southern hemisphere. Its large dome rises 32 metres and it is flanked on each corner by 55-metre minarets. (Image: South African Tourism, CC BY-2.0, via Flickr) The Cradle of Humankind near Johannesburg is one of the richest hominid fossil sites in the world. Maropeng, meaning “returning to the place of origin” in Setswana, is the fun visitor centre in the Cradle of Humankind. It’ll change the way you see the world. (Image: South African Tourism, CC BY-2.0, via Flickr) Vilakazi Street in Soweto is one of the most famous streets in South Africa. It housed two Nobel Peace Prize winners: Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu. (Image: South African Tourism, CC BY-2.0, via Flickr) Huge, colourfully painted cooling towers dominate Orlando in Soweto. Once part of a power station, they now add another tourist attraction to the township: adventure. Thrill-seekers are able to bungee jump off the two 100-metre-high towers. (Image: South African Tourism, CC BY-2.0, via Flickr) “It was the opposite of grand, but it was my first true home of my own and I was mightily proud. A man is not a man until he has a house of his own.” This was how Nelson Mandela described his first home, on Vilakazi Street, in his autobiography Long Walk to Freedom. Today the humble Soweto abode, Mandela House, has become a must-see for travellers.

Coming To A Restaurant Near You: Online Food Delivery

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… adam popescu Related Posts This week’s eyebrow-raising $49 million round of funding for German food-ordering site Delivery Hero as well as a flurry of similar recent deals, indicate that consumers and restaurant owners want digital delivery. The U.S. restaurant industry is enormous — $632 billion in annual sales, according to the National Restaurant Association — but also cruelly efficent. The rate of business failure is legendary. But, online food delivery is growing again after furtive entrepreneurial efforts during the Internet boom. And one of the safer bets in the food business has to be on the automation of putting food in American stomachs.According to a study by the National Restaurant Association, 39% of consumers say they would use electronic ordering to buy meals if it were available. That, perhaps prompted 55% of restaurant owners in the same study to say electronic payment systems, essential to online ordering, will become more important to the industry. While some restauranteurs choose to build their own systems, third-party systems vendors, like U.S. market leaders Living Social, Seamless and GrubHub, are a more popular choice as most businesses don’t have the time or ability to create their own options for customers. A host of similar, smaller services are gaining restaurant clients, too, and the reason is clear: They’re easy to use, and that functionality keeps customers engaged. Chris Webb, chief executive at Venice, Calif.-based delivery site ChowNow says his company is succeeding because online customers order “again and again and again.” ChowNow allows customers to order from restaurants via its site and mobile app, and also creates custom menus as well as websites to host restaurant’s content and promote them. In addition to custom client menus and sites, ChowNow provides restaurants with the spending and eating trends of their customers. “If they (restaurant managers) know what a customer is worth to them, a restaurant then knows how much they should spend to acquire more customers,” said Webb.The National Restaurant Association’s recent study reported that 36% of Americans have placed an order online, with 46% saying they would order via a smartphone app if that option was offered. Webb’s service seems to be confirming this trend. “The average customer orders $46 worth of food every month at restaurants using ChowNow.” Webb said he is confident about his industry’s future. “GrubHub, the so-called market leader, will do about $500 million in gross billings (orders taken through its system) this year,” he said. “That is a fraction of one percent of the overall market. When the market leader holds less than 1% of the market, it makes me obviously very bullish.”Photo by Markteecenter_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#apps#web last_img read more
