first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesMauricio Pochettino refused to blame his Tottenham players for conceding two second-half goals to crash out of the Champions League against Juventus.Spurs looked to be heading into the quarter-finals after Heung-Min Son’s first-half strike put them 3-2 up on aggregate, but Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala delivered a hammer blow within three devastating minutes.“I am disappointed because we missed a lot of chances, and the team deserved more,” Pochettino said. “The way we conceded we feel disappointed but not only me, the players in the changing room as well.“It was a little bit unfair. To concede these goals is tough because until this moment we were much better. I feel very proud. We dominated. Overall in the two games we were much better.Embed from Getty Images“When you compete at the same level against a team that played two finals in this competition, only you can feel proud and understand that, in football, sometimes you cannot win for different circumstances.“It was no lack off experience, no lack of concentration. How many chances did we concede in first and second leg? We conceded three (tonight) and they scored twice. We created a lot and scored one.“We can talk about different situations. (But) all we are going to talk now is all rubbish because in the end you win or lose. Sometimes you need some luck. We were unlucky because if Harry (Kane) scores at the end, or the chances in the first half go in…that is football.“Only I can say again I am happy with my players. We tried everything to win. Now we have to be positive and try to help the team to improve.” Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebookby Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksRecommended for youAspireAbove.comRemember Pauley Perrette?

first_imgIn Nature, a team of geologists from four universities has proposed a new model for how the Colorado Plateau rose up over a mile from its surroundings.1  Based on seismic data, they propose a “mantle drip” mechanism by which parts of the lower crust dropped into the mantle, replaced by upwelling magma that condensed and floated, like an inner tube under a table in a swimming pool would cause it to rise.    The Colorado Plateau, covering a 300-mile-wide area in Arizona, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico, is well known for its dramatic landscapes, including the Grand Canyon.  Its origin, however, has been mysterious (06/27/2010, “Colorado Plateau Stumps Geologists”).  The authors wrote in their abstract, “The origin of these high elevations is unclear because unlike the surrounding provinces, which have undergone significant Cretaceous�Palaeogene compressional deformation followed by Neogene extensional deformation, the Colorado plateau is largely internally undeformed.”  It’s as if this 130,000-square-mile province floated up more than a mile without cracking (06/24/2009).  Anyone visiting Grand Canyon has probably been struck by the fact that the strata are flat as pancakes for hundreds of miles.  And geologists believe this plateau rose and sank multiple times.    In brief, the model proposed by the team led by Anthony Levander [Rice University] concerns movements under the crust that can only be deduced indirectly, from echoes of earthquake waves that change velocity as they encounter crust, mantle, and asthenosphere (lower mantle) regions.  Upwelling of mantle material from the asthenosphere would “destabilize continental lithosphere and drive uplift,” they said.  The team went far beyond observations of current data, though, to propose multiple “mantle drip” episodes under the Colorado Plateau over 70 million years.  Then they suggested that the current one, which had the most effect on the origin of the Grand Canyon, began 6 million years ago – reinforcing younger ages for the famous gorge.    Live Science swallowed the model wholesale without criticism, announcing, “Mystery of Grand Canyon’s Formation Revealed.”  In smaller print, it backtracked slightly, saying, “The birth of the Grand Canyon and the Colorado Plateau through which it carved have been a geological mystery.  Now a giant anomalous structure discovered on the underside of the plateau could shed light on how it was formed.”    As for Levander et al, “The timing of both Colorado plateau uplift and formation of the Grand Canyon remain unresolved,” the first line of their paper admitted.  Their proposal that mantle drip and asthenosphere uplift “delaminates” the lower crust episodically, lifting the Colorado Plateau upward, can only be inferred indirectly, and only for the most recent episode (if there was more than one).  “We propose that a series of such events have been removing the lithosphere from the Colorado plateau peripheries since the Farallon slab was removed 20-30 Myr ago, and that we have imaged only the most recent of these,” they ended.  “These events are responsible for the uneven, outside-in magmatic invasion of the plateau, as well as uplift of its edges and interior.”    For more on mysteries of the Colorado Plateau, see 06/27/2010, 06/24/2009.  For more on the age of Grand Canyon, see 09/16/2005, 11/30/2007, 03/05/2008.1.  Levander et al, “Continuing Colorado plateau uplift by delamination-style convective lithospheric downwelling,” Nature 472 (28 April 2011), pp. 461�465, doi:10.1038/nature10001.Where are the philosophers of science?  They are meekly talking amongst themselves in other parts of the campus, afraid to challenge the priesthood in the science department whom our culture has granted epistemic privilege to declare the way the world is.  The timid philosophers are ignored by the science storytellers who run rampant in the journals, announcing their myths as truth to the gullible science media who are only too happy to declare to the peasants what the priesthood has “discovered.”    What are the observations here?  Some seismic records in the present.  Did these geologists see 70 million years, or even six?  Of course not.  They can see current landforms, magma outcrops, fault lines, locations of minerals and oil, mountain elevations and other present-day phenomena, and with seismic data can create maps of underground provinces where the echoes speed up or slow down (which they did).  That’s about it.    The rest is inference.  The word observation occurs only one time in the whole paper: “Petrologic and geochemical observations indicate that late Cretaceous�Palaeogene (~90�40?Myr ago) low-angle subduction hydrated and probably weakened much of the Proterozoic tectospheric mantle beneath the Colorado plateau.”  No, it doesn’t indicate any such thing; what they mean is that the empirical observations appear to “fit” with a model or scenario that they find plausible, within the paradigm of long ages and plate tectonics (07/09/2004).  Time is orthogonal to their data; there is no time evidence except in their heads.    Making inferences is fine if they can be tested, but who other than God could possibly know what actually happened and when?  In contrast to the paltry references to observation, the word “suggests” and its derivatives occur 20 times, as in “The pattern suggests to us….” followed by the word three more times in the next two sentences.  the word empirical is entirely absent; evidence appears four times, but only in references to how it “suggests” parts of the story they wish to tell.    Science was supposed to do more than provide suggestions.  It was supposed to rely supremely on empirical observations.  It has degenerated into a form of divination.  The earthquake echoes say nothing about millions of years; the geologists used the echoes like tea leaves or crystal balls to prophesy.  The prophecies are required to fit the monolithic paradigms of the Science Temple, where observations are mere props for scenarios that “suggest” unobservable events.  These suggestions become plots for stories, handed off to the science reporters who, like court jesters, entertain the public with presumed wisdom from the sages.  Choose your sages wisely, then you may become sagacious yourself.(Visited 143 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

first_imgMalaysian crash investigators have now concluded that MH370 with 239 passengers and crew was hijacked last Saturday March 8.More details will follow shortly from a press conference in Kuala Lumpur.Both passengers and crew are under investigation according to Malaysia’s Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein.In the latest twist it appears that the plane’s ACARS and transponders were shutdown at different times.ACARS, which sends limited data related to the plane’s engines and systems stopped operating at 1.07am and the transponders which send location and identity to air traffic control stopped at around 1.21am.The systems could have been shut down manually or may be part of a wider electrical failure. However they cannot be accidently shutdown and require knowledge of the 777 cockpit and systems to be turned off.While the ACARS was shut down the US military believes that they may have an “indication” that MH370 went down in the Indian Ocean near the Andaman Islands and have dispatched a ship to investigate.This relates to an hourly interrogation of the plane’s satellite transmitting antenna associated with the 777’s Health Management program. Apparently signals were received during the next four of five hourly checks. Inmarsat describes the signals as “routine” and “automated”. The information was passed to the airline.According to a report from ABC News, American military forces were moving the USS Kidd to the area to begin the search.White House press secretary Jay Carney acknowledged Thursday US time that there are yet-to-be conclusive claims about the plane being much further west off course than initially believed.“There are a number of possible scenarios that are being investigated as to what happened to the flight, and we are not in a position at this point to make conclusions about what happened, unfortunately,” Mr Carney said.When questioned about the “indication” regarding the Indian Ocean, Mr Carney said that the White House is “looking at information, pursuing possible leads [and] working within the investigation being led by the Malaysian government, and it is my understanding that one possible piece of information — or collection of pieces of information — has led to the possibility that a new area, a search area, may be opened in the Indian Ocean.”Indian aircraft are combing the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, made up of more than 500 mostly uninhabited islands, for signs of the missing plane.The search for MH370 has expanded dramatically in the past week and is now the largest search in aviation history.Satellite images released by China on Thursday that showed wreckage have been found to be false.The search for MH370 has been dogged by conflicting information and false leads drawing accusations that Malaysia has bungled the response.However, many of the false leads originated elsewhere.In all, 56 surface ships with 10 shipboard helicopters and 48 fixed-wing aircraft from 14 countries searching waters mainly between Malaysia and Vietnam.The engine fitted to flight MH370 was the subject of a directive from Europe’s aviation safety regulator which last month that warned of “fire related” failures if it wasn’t fixed.The European Aviation Safety Agency issued an airworthiness directive to airlines on February 4 relating to Rolls Royce Tent 800 engines, the model used on MH370.It told airlines to install software that would prevent one of the engine’s turbines going into an over speed (too fast) condition and warned of “fire related failure modes.”“This condition, if not corrected, could lead to uncontained multiple turbine blade failures” or far worse a “turbine disc burst, possibly resulting in damage to, and reduced control of, the aeroplane,” the directive said.The software fix was supposed to be installed within 14 days of the directive. It is unclear whether the engine on MH370 had been fixed by the time the plane left Kuala Lumpur on Friday night.Reports on Wednesday that Boeing 777s had been the subject of a separate service bulletin last year did not relate to MH370.Boeing issued service bulletins relating to 777s having cracks underneath the satellite communication antenna adapter on the top of the fuselage.But MH370 did not have the particular SATCOM antenna adapter and was not impacted by the AD.last_img read more

first_imgThe Perks: More Storage And Better Security For users, the Mega message is less clear. Whether they were using Megaupload for piracy or legitimate file sharing, the site’s users have had to move on to other means of transferring bits across the Internet. For some, that means services like Dropbox while others moved to Megaupload-esque solutions like Rapidshare and Mediafire, both of which have made changes to their functionality and public posture since the Megaupload raid. Where ever they went, Dotcom is hoping to lure those users back with tightened security and ample storage space. On the surface, Mega’s offering is pretty tempting. While Dropbox and Box.net limit free users to 2GB to 5GB of storage, Mega lets you pile up 50GB worth of data before asking you to pay. The premium subscriptions start at 500GB for $10 per month and go up to 4TB for $30 a month. Given History, Is It Worth It?Sure, Mega is also much more secure than its predecessor, using super-tight asymmetric encryption to keep data secure and out of view from curious governments and other third parties. But no matter how good it is, do you really want to store your valuable data on a service tied to Kim Dotcom? When you sign up for Mega, it’s hard not to think about what happened to the founder’s last filesharing product. You can’t help but picture the armed raid and simultaneous seizure of Megaupload’s servers.  Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… john paul titlow Tags:#filesharing#Kim Dotcom#megaupload#piracy#security A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts center_img In an over-the-top press event at his New Zealand mansion last weekend, the notorious Kim Dotcom unveiled a new cloud storage service called Mega. From the ashes of his now-defunct Megaupload, which was shut down by U.S authorities exactly one year ago, rises a service that promises to be incredibly secure and better at handling copyright complaints.But will users flock to it? More to the point, should you use it?On a personal level, Mega is a big win for Kim Dotcom. With it, he shows the world that the military-style raid on his mansion one year ago (which was theatrically mimicked during the Mega launch event) did not succeed in bringing him down, even as he faces criminal charges over Megaupload’s alleged involvement in copyright infringement.  It’s also hard not to think about Kyle Goodwin. He’s the Ohio-based high school sports broadcaster who was using Megaupload to transfer video files between himself and the video editors he had hired to help produce his broadcasts. After one of his external hard drives was damaged, Goodwin tried logging into his Megaupload account to retrieve his old files. By then, the FBI had already seized the servers, locking Goodwin and plenty of other users out of their data. He has since been involved in a class action lawsuit demanding that authorities give non-infringing users access to their Megaupload data.  How likely is a shutdown of Mega? Thanks to the way the service was built and the lessons learned from the demise of Megaupload, probably pretty remote. But for some users, it’s going to be tough to swallow the idea of trusting a service that is so intrinsically linked with the subject of a major, ongoing criminal prosecution. Other than the color scheme, the Mega interface isn’t all that different from that of Megaupload. Even the logo’s typography is the same: It looks like they just lobbed off the “upload” and changed the color. It just feels a lot like a site with which many people are familiar, but which has been replaced with an FBI anti-piracy warning message. Potential Security HolesPlus, as big of an improvement as Mega may be when it comes to privacy and security, it’s not perfect. In a detailed analysis of Mega’s security, Ars Technica pointed out that the JavaScript-based method of randomly generating numbers for the encryption keys isn’t the most rock-solid option available. “The end result of this is that it is easier (not easy, but easier) to reverse-engineer a Mega user’s private RSA key than it should be,” writes Lee Hutchinson. “That means it’s easier to spoof the identity of a Mega user when sending messages or files.”The site has other limitations as well. For one, it’s very insistent that people use Chrome to access Mega, due to its advanced implementation of HTML5 features. Not even the latest versions of Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer or Safari will suffice. Despite this strict adherence to the latest in Web standards, Mega still relies on Flash for some tasks, like downloading files. That means it won’t work on iOS devices until Mega submits official apps, which Apple may or may not approve. What does that all add up to? For users like Kyle Goodwin, who have a day-to-day need to rely heavily on cloud-based file storage for critical data, Mega remains a bit of a gamble. But for sharing miscellaneous, backed-up files here and there, there’s little reason to not give it a try.
