Woburn’s Glenna and Harriet Beasley made the most of perfect conditions to triumph in the Mothers and Daughters at Royal Mid Surrey on Saturday. It was the third win for Glenna over four decades, but this time she made the transition from winning daughter to winning mother, because her previous victories had been with her mother, Lady Angela Bonallack in 1979 and 2000. Indeed, Angela still played an important part in Glenna and Harriet’s victory as she flew down from Scotland to pair up with her other daughter, Sara Stocks, to be their playing partners making up a family foursome. However, it was no easy win for the Beasleys , as they only secured the title by a single shot from the Gillian and Sarah Attwood, from Gog Magog, finishing on an aggregate score of 114, 8-over-par, over the 27 holes medal. Despite playing some wonderful golf, both pairs felt they squandered chances and succumbed to the pressure at times. Indeed the Beasleys were feeling very contented with their morning round until they found a bunker on final hole, took three attempts to get the ball out and ended up with a double bogey seven. Sarah Atwood, a plus one handicap with ambitions to turn professional, admitted she and her mother just started too slowly. After dropping six shots over the front nine, they finally discovered their form, dropping only two on the back nine, to finish one shot behind the Beasleys on 79 after the morning round. At that stage the contest was wide open, as the leaders after eighteen holes were 2003 winners, Ann Laughland and Rosie Jenner from Rye, who have competed the event for over thirty years. At the other end of the golfing spectrum, 13-year-old Martha Lewis from St George’s Hill was wowing the spectators, playing with her mother Evelyn, with a brilliant morning round of 79 and Martha was deservedly awarded the Meg Kent Cup, for the best U16 player. As the wind picked up in the afternoon for the remaining nine holes, the Beasleys and the Attwoods raised their games and the chances of the other contenders fell away. Leading scratch scores Glenna Beasley (Woburn) & Harriet Beasley (Woburn) 114 (78&36) Gillian Attwood (Gog Magog) & Sarah Attwood (Gog Magog) 115 (79&36) Louella Hitchcock (Chigwell ) & Lorna Hitchcock (Hylands) 121 (78&43) Alison Taylor (Walton Heath) & Katie Taylor (Walton Heath) 122 (82&40) Christine Griffith (Walton Heath) & Charlotte Griffith (Walton Heath) 122 (83&39) Evelyn Lewis (St George’s Hill) & Martha Lewis (St George’s Hill) 122 (79&43) Karen Kuhler (Walton Heath) & Madeleine Kuhler (Walton Heath) 123 (82&41) Ann Laughland (Rye) & Rosie Jenner (Rye) 123 (76&47) Priscilla Shaw (West Hill ) & Natasha Cheeseman (Royal Wimbledon) 124 (80&44) Mona Watters (Muswell Hill) & Tara Watters (Muswell Hill) 125 (83&42) 26 Apr 2013 Woburn pair win Mothers and Daughters

The idea, believe it or not, to celebrate Minor Hockey with a weeklong string of events got its start in Trail during the late 1950s.Trail Director Charlie Maclean organized Canada’s first Minor Hockey Week at Cominco Arena in Trail, promoting it with the slogan: “Don’t SEND your boy to play hockey – TAKE him!”In 1958, Canadian Amateur Hockey Association thought so much of the Minor Hockey Week idea that it adopted the idea to celebrate the sport across Canada.
Here we go again: another alleged human ancestor fossil that shakes up the evolutionary family tree. No sooner had Nature1 announced a little 1-meter tall fossil female “hominin” that the discoverers classified as Homo erectus, that the science news media like MSNBC and the BBC flew into action reporting it as “fossil hobbits” They seem to have all borrowed National Geographic’s artwork, which appeared so fast they must been tipped off. The drawing by Peter Schouten shows an upright-walking, naked, dark-skinned male with spear and prey over the shoulder. The trouble with the fossil is that it was dated at only 18,000 years. The bones were soggy and unfossilized in the cave, and they were found on an island far from the Indonesian mainland, with stone tools apparently associated with them. Having a member of genus Homo so far to the East so late in the timeline is forcing a major revision of the idea that modern humans arrived in Europe much earlier. “My jaw dropped to my knees” said one researcher upon hearing the date. Homo erectus were long assumed too primitive to have migrated to an island as distant from the mainland as where the two partial skeletons were found. Yet surprisingly, local natives have legends about “little people” that lived in the jungle, and the BBC article says Henry Gee (editor of Nature) goes as far as to suggest that descendants of this tribe might be found alive today. The small stature of these individuals was a big surprise. Skull capacity of Homo floresiensis, as it was named, is only 380cc – yet evidence of stone tools, upright posture and other “derived” (i.e., advanced) characteristics seemingly contradicts the suggestion these were primitive. Maybe it’s not brain volume but complexity that matters; after all, DNA can store 1018> bits of information in one cubic millimeter. “The whole idea that you need a particular brain size to do anything intelligent is completely blown away by this find,” remarked Henry Gee. Everyone seems to be agreeing on one thing: this astonishing find is going to rewrite the textbooks on human evolution – again. Carl Wieland has written a creationist perspective on this find at Answers in Genesis.Update 11/12/2004: Was so-called Homo florensiensis a small but modern human with a skull deformity called microcephaly? Michael Balter reported in Science3 that two prominent paleoanthropologists think so. Brad Harrub and Bert Thompson published an article on Apologetics Press that quotes one of them, and argues this skeleton cannot be anything but fully human. Balter, for now, leaves the controversy unresolved.1Rex Dalton, “Little lady of Flores forces rethinking of human evolution,” Nature 431, 1029 (28 October 2004); doi:10.1038/4311029a.2Mirazon and Foley, “Paleoanthropology: Human evolution writ small,” Nature 431, 1043 – 1044 (28 October 2004); doi:10.1038/4311043a.3Michael Balter, “Paleoanthropology: Skeptics Question Whether Flores Hominid Is a New Species,” Science, Vol 306, Issue 5699, 1116, 12 November 2004, [DOI: 10.1126/science.306.5699.1116a].People don’t have to be 5 to 6 feet tall to be people. There are little people and big people today, yet they show an uncanny commonality in average intelligence, sociability, language, and understanding that Francis Schaeffer used to call the “mannishness of man” (i.e., the set of universal distinctives that separate people from the animals). Calling something a “hominid” or “hominin” is just a word game to make scientists appear to know more than gullible reporters. Nothing primitive or transitional about these creatures was found; they have all the marks of full humanity. National Geographic and its allies in the news media should be excoriated for the racist artwork they published. With only bones to draw from, they made Mr. Floresiensis have a protruded chimp-like jaw, an ape-like squat nose, and black skin. Everything else about the drawing looks fully human, including the proportion of skull size to body size, musculature, walking posture and hunting skill. Any black person, any respecter of black persons, should be outraged not only at the racist overtones of the picture, but the evolutionary spin put on the data. Evolutionary paleoanthropology was in such a complete upheaval of confusion already, what’s another skeleton going to hurt? It’s just making the rubble of evolutionary storytelling bounce at this point. The only progress to be hoped for is that they will start calling themselves creationists (see 09/23/2004 headline).(Visited 57 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
Continue Reading Previous Open-source software meets broad needs of robot-vision developersNext Aegis Software announces new integration with OMRON for superior data collection At this year’s MD&M West trade fair (Anaheim, United States), Sensirion and Quantex Arc will be presenting an innovative concept study in the field of infusion technology – Quantex’s new wearable drug delivery IoT Platform “Quantex 4C”.Sensirion’s cost-effective LD20 single-use liquid flow sensor, which has been used for this concept study, is exceptionally compact and measures flow rates in the micro and milliliter per hour range with outstanding precision and reliability thanks to the patented CMOSens Technology. Additionally, it features sensitive failure detection mechanisms to help counteract, for example, occlusions and air-in-line. Quantex’s pump design is based on a rotary, fixed displacement principle thus is much less sensitive to variables such as line pressure, fluid viscosity and flow rate.The new wearable drug delivery IoT platform “Quantex 4C” demonstrates an innovative approach to infusion therapies. It integrates connectivity with a modular drug delivery platform and enables continuous monitoring of the therapy with the help of a single use liquid flow sensor for safe ambulatory treatments.The objective of the presented study is to demonstrate the possibilities of a comprehensive drug delivery system to the medical technology industry. The compactness, low power consumption and cost-effectiveness of both, sensor and pump, allow the design of a wearable device which controls and monitors the drug delivery therapy simultaneously. Such a connected drug delivery platform opens up entirely new possibilities for all involved stakeholders. While patients and clinicians benefit from an increased ease of use and confidence in the therapy, low maintenance and less training efforts; it allows healthcare and pharma companies to capture vital adherence data and simplifies patient compliance. Reliable failure detection is a central requirement for next generation drug delivery devices. Ambulatory treatments and wearable applications will only be successful if patients as well as clinicians trust the reliability of those next generation devices.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components
By Amanpreet Singh New Delhi, Sept 17 (PTI) National archery compound coach Jiwanjot Singh Teja is set to become one of the youngest Dronacharya awardees after the 34-year old’s name was recommended for the honour along with Asian Games gold medallist Arpinder Singh’s coach S S Pannu. The selection committee picked Teja, head coach of the national compound archery team since 2013, along with Pannu, who trained triple jumper Arpinder Singh, the gold medal winner at the recent Jakarta Games. Also recommended for the Dronacharya award are CA Kuttappa (boxing), Vijay Sharma (weightlifting) and A Srinivasa Rao (table tennis), according to the sources in the Sports Ministry. Teja was instrumental in reviving two-time Asian Games medallist Trisha Deb’s career. In 2010, a Korean coach had said Trisha was not fit to become an archer but under Teja she went on to win two bronze medals at the 2014 Incheon Asian Games. Under Teja, India’s women compound team achieved the world number one rank. “My son was born in 2010 and I have missed all his growing years because I was always away in the national camps. I really missed my son’s early years in childhood. I did not know when he started walking on his own but all this has paid now,” Teja, who hails from village Bhawanigarh in Sangrur district, told PTI from Patiala. “And getting this award at the age of 34 is very encouraging for me and the sport. I can easily serve another 20 years. Initially, I had also thought to become an engineer like my brother but then I chose to be an archer. I never became an international standard archer because there was no good training available.advertisement “I asked my family to help me become a coach and today we have produced excellent results in compound archery. Our team was ninth in the world in 2011 and in two years we took it to world number two rank,” Teja said, remembering his struggle and achievements. Four coaches have been recommended for the Dronacharya award in the life-time category. They are Clarence Lobo (hockey), Tarak Sinha (cricket), Jiwan Kumar Sharma (judo) and V R Beedu (athletics). Four Dhyan Chand awardees picked by the selection committee are Satyadev Prasad (archery), Bharat Chhetri (hockey), Bobby Aloysius (athletics) and Chougale Dadu Dattatray. These recommendations are subject to approval by Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore. Once ratified by him, President Ram Nath Kovind will present the awards on September 25 at the Rashtrapati Bhawan. The selection committee was headed by Justice Mudgal and has other members in former Commonwealth Games gold-winning air pistol shooter Samresh Jung, shuttler Ashwini Ponnappa, former national boxing coach G S Sandhu, hockey coach AK Bansal and archery coach Sanjeeva Singh apart from Sports Authority of India’s Special Director General Onkar Kedia and Joint Secretary (Sports) Inder Dhamija. The Dronacharya award is presented to coaches for their outstanding and meritorious work on a consistent basis over a period of four years. The Dhyan Chand honour is bestowed on sportspersons for their life-time achievements and contribution to sport during both their active career and after retirement. The Dronacharya and Dhyan Chand awardees are entitled to a cash prize of Rs 5 lakh each. Recommendations for Dronacharya Awards: Regular Category: Jiwanjot Singh Teja (archery), S S Pannu (athletics), C A Kuttappa (boxing), Vijay Sharma (weightlifting) and A Srinivasa Rao (table tennis). Life Time category: Clarence Lobo (hockey), Tarak Sinha (cricket), Jiwan Kumar Sharma (judo) and V R Beedu (athletics). Recommendations for Dhyanchand Award: Satyadev Prasad (archery), Bharat Chhetri (hockey), Bobby Aloysius and Chougale Dadu Dattatray (wrestling). PTI AT AT PDSPDS
