Gavel GamutBy Jim Redwine(Week 05 December 2016)www.jamesmredwine.comCOSMOGONISMMy great friend from our days at Indiana University, Dr. Walter Jordan, has an eclectic bent and a background in science. Over the years he has patiently striven to exposit for me numerous scientific phenomena. Occasionally I get it. However, even though I began college with the goal of defeating the Soviet Union in the space race, reality sat in during my freshman physics class.It was not my fault that physics and I fell out of love when I was an eighteen-year-old freshman at Oklahoma State University. It was O.S.U.’s fault for seating the students alphabetically which resulted in my sitting right next to Dana Darlene Reno who was not only a fellow student but also Miss Oklahoma 1961. Somehow my mind never quite focused on the exciting mysteries of space and time. As for Miss Reno, I am fairly certain her ability to concentrate was not similarly impacted.Regardless, it turned out that the formulation of sentences suited my abilities better than the formation of formulas. English and psychology were substantially less confounding to me than cascading atoms. However, my friend Walt has never given up hope that the light of scientific discovery might seep through my dark layers of linguistics. In fact, his most recent effort to lift the veil from my frontal lobe involved human speech and evolution. For Christmas Dr. Jordan sent me a copy of Tom Wolfe’s new book, The Kingdom of Speech, which points out that Charles Darwin’s claim that Natural Selection is the cosmogonism for the human race is disputable.Darwin dearly wanted his theory to be the “Theory of Everything” (that’s the definition of cosmogonism) when it came to Homo sapiens. However, according to Tom Wolfe’s book, not only does Natural Selection not explain everything in Man’s development, Darwin was not even the first to have the idea. Wolfe posits that Darwin usurped the theory of Evolution from Alfred Russell Wallace and then spent the rest of his life, Darwin’s, trying to justify his chicanery. FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail The real problem for Darwin and numerous others such as the contemporary guru Noam Chomsby, was and is language. If Natural Selection is the total answer to Man’s rise from amoeba to atomic power, there should be gradations of speech such as from apes to humans; there are not says Wolfe.Well, Gentle Reader, I know you might prefer, as did I, to daydream about things other than the lack of evidence for the progression of speech from specie to specie to us. If so, blame Walt. He is the one who sent me the book. I only read it because Peg threatened to have me clean the attic if she caught me with any idle time.www.jamesmredwine.com read more

More than 10 million employees in France — one out of every two in the private sector — have been laid off during the coronavirus lockdown and are now benefiting from an extended indemnity program to weather the crisis, the government said Wednesday.”Today in France there are 10.2 million employees whose salaries are being paid by the state,” Labor Minister Muriel Penicaud told BFM television.Around 820,000 employers, or more than six in ten, have applied for a social security program that grants 84 percent of net pay for workers temporarily laid off because of a drop in business, a number that is increasing “day after day,”” she said. Topics : “It’s a considerable number, we’ve never done anything like it in our country,” she said.President Emmanuel Macron vowed that “no company would be abandoned to the risk of bankruptcy” when announcing the widespread business closures and stay-at-home orders implemented on March 17.His government last week raised its economic relief package to 110 billion euros ($120 billion) and extended the temporary layoffs program to individuals who employ nannies or cleaners who can no longer come to work.Penicaud said entire sectors of the economy have effectively been shut down, with nine out of ten workers in hotels and restaurants as well as in construction now unemployed. “We see how big a task it will be getting back to work after the confinement,” which the government plans to start lifting on May 11, Penicaud said.”The longer this crisis lasts, the harder it’s going to be afterward.”Also on Wednesday, the head of the state investment bank BPIFrance said nearly 40 billion euros in government-backed, low-rate emergency loans had been extended to businesses amid the coronavirus crisis — an average of 140,000 euros to some 251,000 businesses.”It’s practically certain that we’re going to go beyond 100 billion euros,” Nicolas Dufourcq told RTL radio.But business groups have warned that even with the loans and financial relief such as delayed payment of payroll taxes and other charges, thousands of small and midsize companies could be facing bankruptcy this year. read more

HealthLifestyleNewsRegional Guyana records increase numbers of HIV, TB cases by: – June 5, 2018 25 Views no discussions Share Share Tweet Share Sharing is caring! GEORGETOWN, Guyana (CMC) — Guyana could eliminate the mosquito born malaria disease, a senior official of the Pan American/ World Health Organisation (PAHO/WHO) official said on Monday.“We see Guyanese cases falling from 45,000 (infected) every year to a mere 11,000 so it gives me hope that we can actually eliminate malaria with time. Barbados has done it so we should be able to,” PAHO/WHO country representative Dr William Adu-Krow told reporters.He made reference to the mosquito-borne disease as part of the continued push by the PAHO/WHO to tackle the big three major communicable diseases in Guyana- the other two being Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) that can lead to AIDS, and tuberculosis.But while the country is reporting a decline in malaria cases, the situation is less encouraging for HIV. While its prevalence had been decreasing to a low of 1900 people taking anti-retroviral therapy in 2006, recent data shows an increase in new cases.“All of a sudden, new cases are rising which means people are just tired about hearing of HIV and they think it is no longer an issue but it is still an issue and we have to do something about it,” Dr Adu-Krow said.Statistics provided by Global Fund indicate that the number of people placed on anti-retroviral treatment for HIV increased from 3,800 in 2012 to 4,800 in 2016.Meanwhile, new tuberculosis cases are also on the increase, moving from 270 cases in 2007 to 2,210 in 2016.The PAHO/WHO official this is also the most expensive of all the diseases since the advent of multi-drug resistant strains.“We are getting more and more people getting to what we call resistant TB. Those cases are very difficult to treat and not only that, it cost about ten times more to treat those cases.”Multi-drug resistant TB cases develop when the bacteria that cause tuberculosis (TB) can withstand the effect of the drugs. This has become about due to infected people not taking the full complement of medication. read more
Share NewsSports Morton, Willett out regional match by: – March 14, 2011 Tweet 31 Views no discussions Share HOSTS TRINIDAD and Tobago were within sight of an outright victory over the Leeward Islands during the rain-affected third day of the fifth Round WICB Regional Four Day Tournament clash at the Queen’s Park Oval, Port-of-Spain yesterday. Set a victory target of 183, Trinidad and Tobago lost out-of-form opener Justin Guillen for one, bowled by a delivery that kept low from off-spinner Justin Athanaze, but Lendl Simmons (16) and Sherwin Ganga (12) survived until tea, with the home team on 31 for one up until press time.Persistent drizzle forced a delay after tea, the second such stoppage for the day – play started 45 minutes late due to early morning rainfall. After tea on Saturday, the Leewards were rocked by a double-strike from fast bowler Shannon Gabriel, who removed Shane Peters (eight) and Garvin Williams (a second-ball duck) to close on 30 for two, 11 runs ahead – the stockily-built pair of Shane Jeffers and captain Steve Liburd were on 12 and six respectively.Jahmar Hamilton top-scored with 70 and Jason Peters added 33 but the spin trio of Amit Jaggernauth, Imran Khan and Ganga collected two wickets apiece to dismiss the Leewards for 201. Off-spinner Jaggernauth, the most experienced of the Trinidad and Tobago six-man bowling attack, removed Liburd to a caught and bowled chance, with the batsman advancing down the wicket in vain. Jeffers also offered a return catch to Jaggernauth, which the bowler gleefully accepted, to see the Leewards tottering at 48 for four.Hamilton and Jaison Peters consolidated to carry the Leewards to 93 for four at lunch, but Peters should have been back on his way to the pavilion shortly into the lunch-tea session, but Jaggernauth spilled a chance at slip off leg-spinner Khan. Peters was eventually dismissed by Emrit, in the first over of a new spell, cutting to gully to end a 64-ball stay, which featured six fours. Emrit was furious when Jaggernauth muffed another chance at slip, when Jacques Taylor was on nought, but Sherwin Ganga, with his fifth delivery of the innings, got the right-hander to prod to silly mid-on.Athanaze’s cameo of 23, off 34 balls with two fours and a six, ended when he was caught by Ganga, running in from long-on, off Khan, a delivery after lofting the spinner to the Gerry Gomez Media Centre. A similar fate occurred in Khan’s next over, when Hamilton (114 balls, six fours and two sixes) fell to a Ganga catch in the deep, after a six, the ball before, to the Learie Constantine Stand. With Tonito Willett absent, Anthony Martin was the last to go, stumped down the leg-side, leaving Garvin Tonge high and dry on a quick-fire 20.Source: By JOEL BAILEY, Carib Daily Photo Credit: ESPN Cric Info Sharing is caring!
