Kirk Herbstreit’s Thoughts On The AP Preseason Top 25

first_imgKirk Herbstreit talking on ESPN.ESPN’s top college football analyst has shared his thoughts on the AP preseason top 25.Kirk Herbstreit appeared on ESPN’s SportsCenter this morning to discuss the release of the AP preseason top 25 poll, which you can see here.Here are Herbstreit’s thoughts on the poll:He’s not really surprised with the top five.“I think the one thing that stands out right away is that of the four teams that made the playoff, three are right back up there in the Top 3. I think it tells you a lot of times you’re voting by what happened last season and you’re trying to guess. Keep in mind we haven’t seen any of these teams yet and we’re speculating.”Ohio State at No. 6 might “raise some eyebrows.”“You’re trying to put together a team that can be competitive without knowing anything really. There’s nothing really shocking to me with the Top 5, but Ohio State up at 6 might raise so eyebrows for a lot people because of the losses.”There is parity.“This will be one of those years where there’s a lot of parity and it’ll come down to who’s healthy and who makes the most of their personnel. I don’t think the committee has it in them after 15 weeks of football to vote two teams from one conference. Even if they think they’re in the top four, I don’t see them ever doing that. They’ll be worried about feedback. This might be a year that it might be a valid point, but I don’t think he committee will ever put two teams from one conference in.”A College Football Playoff crasher? Houston. Or Boise State“Houston’s a pick that everybody seems to want to talk about because of last year and I understand that.Greg Ward and that offense is going to score. But if I’m looking at all these teams in (the Group of 5), I’d go with Boise State. They’ll be favored in most of their games after Washington State. Boise State can potentially ruffle some feathers if they beat the Cougs in Week 2.”Who are you picking to win it all this year?last_img read more

Trump Inks Huge Increase In Military Appropriations

first_imgSenator Dan Sullivan R-AK: “For that reason, our strategic location, and our strong support from the communities, we’re getting a lot of military construction dollars headed towards our great state.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享With the signing of the FY2018 National Defense Authorization Act into law on Tuesday, President Donald Trump set into motion a robust military expansion in Alaska. It also authorizes an early Christmas present: news that all military members will receive 2.4% pay raises. Senator Dan Sullivan R-AKSenator Dan Sullivan R-AK: “Part of the funding is 28 additional interceptors at Fort Greely, so a whole new field.  It has $200M military construction authorization for just that portion.  That is going to be good for country’s missile defence, but it’s also going to be good for Alaska’s economy.” Sullivan says that the bill includes funding for advancing key missile defense technologies and for beginning to build a space-based sensor layer. Sullivan thinks that the numbers add up to a lot of construction jobs in Alaska, in 2018.  He says that over the last three military authorizations, over a billion dollars in construction has been invested in Alaska. It also authorizes funding needed to procure an additional 20 missile interceptors required to operationalize the field.center_img As the hub for air combat power for the Asia-Pacific and the Arctic, Sullivan says that Alaska will be home to more than 100 fifth generation fighter aircraft – probably more than any other place in the world. The Act includes authorization of $12.3B for the Missile Defense Agency. Additionally, it authorizes $168.9 million pointed at supporting the beddown of two squadrons of F-35As at Eielson AFB. Other initiatives include authorization to build a new heavy-class polar icebreaker, a U.S Navy study on ice-hardening its ships, and provisions aimed at improving and increasing the Alaska Guard’s combat search and rescue capabilities.

PM slams US congressman over Rakhine remark

first_imgPrime minister Sheikh Hasina speaks at a press briefing at her official residence Gababhaban on Monday. Photo: PIDPrime minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday came down heavily on US congressman and chairman of the Asia and Pacific subcommittee Brad Sherman for his proposal to annex Rakhine state of Myanmar into Bangladesh, terming it ‘fulsome and unjust’, UNB reports.”Uttering such words is very much fulsome and unjust,” she said while responding to a question at a press briefing at her official residence Ganabhaban about the outcomes of her recent China visit.The prime minister said Bangladesh is happy with its areas of 54,000 square miles or 147,000 square kilometres.”We fully reject the proposal to include other country’s border in our territory or attach a province of another country. Every country has to remain happy with its own sovereignty and Myanmar will be the same,” she said.Sheikh Hasina questioned about the intention of the US Congressman’s proposal. “They might be a very big country and he is the congressman of that country, but do they forget their past history where there were civil wars in their country? They should not forget their past. How do they say that the past will not be repeated in the future?” she said.The prime minister also said many incidents are taking place every day in Rakhine state. “Why should Bangladesh attach that kind of problematic area to it after knowing all these?””We’ll never do that. Myanmar is our neighbour and we’re sheltering Rohingyas on humanitarian grounds. But sheltering them doesn’t mean that we’ll include one part of their country,” she said.Hasina mentioned that Bangladesh does not have that kind of mentality. “Every country will stay with its own sovereignty… I want that,” she said.She also said the US congressman should propose that the Myanmar has to take back their nationals from Bangladesh. “That’s the thing the congressman should do. That will be a humanitarian matter. This is not right to create anarchy inside any country,” she said.The prime minister also mentioned that wherever the US puts their hands, fire engulfs every place of it. “There’s no peace anywhere (where they got involved); rather this gave rise to militancy and anarchy in those areas,” she added.She said countries of the region are trying to stay in a peaceful atmosphere. “Their efforts to ignite fire in this region aren’t accepted,” she said.During a budget hearing, US congressman Brad Sherman on 13 June said if the Myanmar government is reluctant about establish good governance to save its Rohingya community and if they do not want to provide security to the Rohingya people living at the northern parts of Rakhine state or unable to do so, then the Rohingya majority area of the state should be incorporated with Bangladesh.He also said the US should support the proposal to annex Rakhine to Bangladesh that is also a demand for the people of the area.last_img read more

Fossil find shows ancient beaked whale hunted fish in shallow waters

first_img © 2015 Rarely-seen whale washes up on Massachusetts beach Modern Ziphiidae dive down to great depths to find prey such as fish and squid—their dolphin-like snouts and teeth allow them to capture prey and eat it, a marked difference from other whales that suck in huge amounts of water and filter the small creatures in it as their means of sustenance. The fossil that was found, the group claims, is the first known example of a ziphiid eating fish near the surface.The researchers believe the whale captured and consumed a large number of sardine-like fish, then a very short time later, died, possibly due to also ingesting a toxin of some sort, fell to the ocean floor and was entombed—but not before disgorging some of the contents of its belly. The fossil was found embedded in rock with multiple small fish inside of its body and in the immediate area surrounding it. Dating of material in the rock placed the age of the whale and surrounding fish to approximately nine to ten million years ago, placing them in the Late Miocene.The fossils were all in remarkably good shape—the team could make out scales on the fish, which is why they believe that they had not had much time to be digested before the whale that ate them died. More importantly, the fish were not deep sea dwellers, which indicated that the whale hunted near the surface at least part of the time. The number of fish, 40 to 60 of them, and their average size of 39 centimeters, the team notes, is in line with a bellyful of fish caught by the whales’ modern cousins. They note also that dolphins moved into the area not much later, displacing the whales, forcing them to seek food in deeper waters.

In their paper published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, the group describes their study of the whale fossil found in a dolomite concretion beneath the sea bed off the coast of Peru last year.center_img Journal information: Proceedings of the Royal Society B More information: No deep diving: evidence of predation on epipelagic fish for a stem beaked whale from the Late Miocene of Peru, Proceedings of the Royal Society B, Published 9 September 2015.DOI: 10.1098/rspb.2015.1530AbstractAlthough modern beaked whales (Ziphiidae) are known to be highly specialized toothed whales that predominantly feed at great depths upon benthic and benthopelagic prey, only limited palaeontological data document this major ecological shift. We report on a ziphiid–fish assemblage from the Late Miocene of Peru that we interpret as the first direct evidence of a predator–prey relationship between a ziphiid and epipelagic fish. Preserved in a dolomite concretion, a skeleton of the stem ziphiid Messapicetus gregarius was discovered together with numerous skeletons of a clupeiform fish closely related to the epipelagic extant Pacific sardine (Sardinops sagax). Based on the position of fish individuals along the head and chest regions of the ziphiid, the lack of digestion marks on fish remains and the homogeneous size of individuals, we propose that this assemblage results from the death of the whale (possibly via toxin poisoning) shortly after the capture of prey from a single school. Together with morphological data and the frequent discovery of fossil crown ziphiids in deep-sea deposits, this exceptional record supports the hypothesis that only more derived ziphiids were regular deep divers and that the extinction of epipelagic forms may coincide with the radiation of true dolphins.

Road closure warning as engineers prepare for SEVEN WEEKS of works

Bosses at Severn Trent Water say the scheme in Oakamoor comes as part of a £400,000 investment in the Staffordshire Moorlands during 2018. The project would see new pipes laid out in the village with work starting at the junction of Ribden Road before moving along Star Bank and finishing adjacent to Hays Gate Farm. That scheme, set to begin on January 29 and last for seven weeks, would see a road closure between Ribden Road and Cotton Lane, with diversions in place. Businesses demand compensation after overrunning roadworks ‘ruin’ Christmas trade Now residents are being invited to learn more about the project during a drop-in session at Oakamoor Village Hall on January 10 from 4pm until 7pm. Dave Kiernan, who is leading the programme for Severn Trent, said: “The existing pipes have been in place for many years and they may start to become more prone to leaks and bursts. “The new pipes we’re planning to install will make sure we can keep water flowing through the pipes for many years to come.” Read MoreSevern Trent agrees to help catch speeding drivers (but residents still want a relief road) Mr Kiernan has also apologised for the potential disruption caused by the works. He said: “This is really essential work to provide our customers with a reliable supply of fresh drinking water. “Our contractors from Amey will work closely with local people to keep access open to homes as businesses as much as possible. “We’re sorry for any disruption this causes but we hope local people understand the great benefits this work will have for the future.”last_img read more
