first_img Press Association The England striker, who was surprisingly only a substitute in Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Real Madrid, has been the subject of intense speculation about his future. But Ferguson has knocked down suggestions United would look to sell Rooney in the summer. Sunday’s team selection for the FA Cup quarter-final against Chelsea will be keenly observed, although Ferguson’s stance on the Rooney debate is now quite clear. Former Everton man Rooney is tied to United until the end of the 2014/15 season, so there is no need to sit down for talks immediately. Ferguson said, according to several Sunday newspapers: “There’s no issue with his contract, when it has to be renegotiated it will be. We don’t want players to leave.” center_img Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed the club intend to keep Wayne Rooney beyond the length of his current contract.last_img read more

first_imgJamaica Scorpions coach Junior Bennett, has said that while he is concerned about the fortunes of the team in recent years, he is not too perturbed at the notion of losing his job. The former regional four-day and one-day championship-winning coach has for the past three years been prevailing over squads that have produced substandard outcomes. This lack of results has been evident in the regional first-class championship, where two years ago, the team finished fourth, and last year, fifth. The one-day team has not been firing on all cylinders either, with the team over the past three seasons having a record of two semi-final appearances, and a first-round exit. “If you are the coach of the side and they are not playing well, then you have to take responsibility for it,” Bennett told The Gleaner following the team’s eight-wicket defeat to Trinidad and Tobago Red Force in the WICB First-Class Championship at Sabina Park earlier this week. “But, in life, just you just have to do what you have to do. That’s the way I see it. That’s the way I work. You are going to have good times and bad times.” The defeat by Jamaica was their fourth of the season in seven outings, with the others being victories. It followed a surprising 82-run defeat away to Leewards Hurricanes the previous week. This has placed them in third position on 60 points and with only a mathematical chance of surpassing leaders and defending champions Guyana Jaguars, who has 107. B’DOS IN SECOND PLACE The Barbados Pride, 90, are in second position with Red Force fourth on 56, Windwards Volcanoes fifth on 41 and the Leewards rounding off the standings with 36. “No, I am not worried,” Bennett said when asked if he was worried that the team’s lack of results could cost him his job. “Anytime you play cricket and dominate for a period of time, you are going to have a time when you just have to rebuild,” Bennett added. The Scorpions, who changed captain from Paul Palmer Jr to John Campbell last weekend in a bid to try and arrest their flagging fortunes, are scheduled to face the Pride at Sabina Park this weekend in the eighth round of the 10-round championship.last_img read more

first_imgIt’s as indefensible as believers in ghosts lying about observational evidence for them.Dark matter may exist. Spirits of the dead, similarly, may walk the earth. Neither has any hard physical evidence. Multi-million dollar dark matter detectors built deep underground continue to find nothing. If investigators into the paranormal ridicule belief in ghosts, why do they excuse belief in dark matter as scientific?So dogmatic are astronomers about their beloved dark matter, they will lie to the press, confidently asserting it has been discovered. To see the lies, the alert reader has to keep focus on the question, ‘what is dark matter?’ Just as a believer in ghosts cannot allege that rustling leaves in the trees is an effect of a passing ghost, cosmologists cannot assume that motions among galaxies or stars is an effect of dark matter, which they cannot describe. What is it? What is it made of? Without those answers, the term ‘dark matter’ is a placeholder for ignorance.Scientists Find the ‘Missing’ Dark Matter from the Early Universe (Live Science). No, scientists did not find dark matter. What the headline alleges the body text takes away. Mara Johnson-Groh writes,Dark matter makes up approximately 85 percent of the total mass in our known universe, but the mysterious substance does not interact with light, leaving scientists in the dark about the its precise nature. So, instead of viewing it, astronomers must rely on dark matter’s gravitational pull on the normal matter, called baryonic matter, that makes up the stars, nebulas and planets we see in the night sky, as well as all the trees, rocks and people on Earth.In our analogy, investigators did not see the ghosts, but watched the rustling of leaves in the trees. Read further and you find that not everyone was convinced by the Royal Society notice. Also, the article hedges its bold headline by admitting, the “team’s results were highly dependant [sic] on the model they used.” Models are not evidence. Saying that scientists have found the missing dark matter amounts to a highly misleading statement at best, a bald lie at worst.Dark Matter on the Move (Science Daily). This article’s coverage of the Royal Society notice calls the survey the “smoking gun” evidence: “This study may be the ‘smoking gun’ evidence that takes us a step closer to understanding what dark matter is,” an astronomer from Carnegie Mellon says. It may be, or it may not be. The article points to smoke with no gun. Other things than guns can emit smoke – like overhyped news.Dark Matter Behaves Differently in Dying Galaxies (Live Science). Breathes there a reporter willing to critique the belief in dark matter? Rafi Letzter pretends to tell what dark matter does, without knowing what it is. Notice the bizarre incongruity in these statements:Dark matter detectives barely know anything about dark matter, but now they know this: It behaves differently on the fringes of old galaxies than in new ones.Dark matter is the stuff we can’t see in the universe. It makes up most of the mass in the universe but doesn’t emit light. However, it does tug on everything with gravity. Everything in the universe acts like it’s being pulled on by big heavy clouds of something we can’t see. Astronomers just aren’t sure what that something is.This is like saying that ghosts account for most of the motions of leaves in the trees. Can nobody stand up and say that other causes than dark matter could account for the movements of galaxies? Letzter also wrote another article on Live Science, “Four dark matter searches to watch in 2019.” The headline implies that dark matter remains lost. He says of all searches to date,As usual, astronomers didn’t actually find any of the stuff, which is invisible to all our telescopes but appears to make up at least 80 percent of the universe by mass.It looks like dark matter can be heated up and moved around (Phys.org). In this article, astronomer Paul Sutter talks as if ghosts are real, even though we cannot detect them. When you observe a galaxy, you see lots of real objects. But –What you wouldn’t see is what most of that galaxy is really made of. You wouldn’t see the invisible, the hidden. You wouldn’t see the bulk of that galactic mass. You wouldn’t see the dark matter.Saying that dark matter can be heated up and moved around is like saying that ghosts can act more frenzied in some places compared to others, based on which branches of a tree do the most rustling.A ‘Mirror Image’ of Our Universe Existed Before The Big Bang (Science Alert). Does it advance science to explain one occult phenomenon with another occult phenomenon? Can you explain one thing you can’t see with another you can’t see? How bizarre can the dark matter believers get to preserve their pet theory? Jon Christian writes,A new story in Physics World explores the new theory, which was proposed by a trio of Canadian physicists who say that it could explain the existence of dark matter.The new theory, which is laid out in a recent paper in the journal Physical Review of [sic] Letters, aims to preserve a rule of physics called CPT symmetry. In the anti-universe before the Big Bang, it suggests, time ran backwards and the cosmos were made of antimatter instead of matter.This new theory is compelling, according to a news release about the new theory, because it would mean that the universe is filled with “very massive sterile neutrinos” that could explain dark matter, a mysterious material that is believed to make up much of the universe.Writers for Uncommon Descent had some fun with this trekkie idea.Update 1/17/19: New theory could explain missing 95 percent of the cosmos (Phys.org). This has to be one of the most bizarre excuses for dark matter we have ever seen. Cosmologists at the University of Oxford are proposing a substance with “negative mass” for dark matter. This brings to mind phlogiston theory for the explanation of combustion— a widely used example of how some scientists may be willing to give up rationality before abandoning a pet theory. According to the proponents of this new idea,“We now think that both dark matter and dark energy can be unified into a fluid which possesses a type of ‘negative gravity,” repelling all other material around them. Although this matter is peculiar to us, it suggests that our cosmos is symmetrical in both positive and negative qualities.”The existence of negative matter had previously been ruled out as it was thought this material would become less dense as the Universe expands, which runs contrary to our observations that show dark energy does not thin out over time. However, Dr. Farnes’ research applies a ‘creation tensor,” which allows for negative masses to be continuously created. It demonstrates that when more and more negative masses are continually bursting into existence, this negative mass fluid does not dilute during the expansion of the cosmos. In fact, the fluid appears to be identical to dark energy.Go figure. This sounds like the defunct steady-state cosmology. What will it take for cosmologists to admit the possibility that dark matter is a myth? If negative mass fluid is identical to dark energy, is it not reasonable to assume that both occult phenomena are equally unreal?Find our previous articles about dark matter in the Search bar.There have been occasions when appeals to unknown entities, sometimes dubbed “occult forces,” have served science. Oxygen, electrons, neutrinos, and even fundamental forces once were theoretical entities that were subsequently confirmed. Recently, astronomers claimed support for finding the Higgs Boson and gravitational waves. Critics might complain that the latter two are model-dependent, but at least these entities, some of which cannot be determined directly, can be measured to a high degree of accuracy. What is dark matter? Scientists have no idea. They don’t know if it is made of WIMPs or MACHOs, whether it consists of theoretical axions or something completely indescribable. All they know is that they need it for their theories. They need it for an old universe and the big bang theory. They’ve been looking for it for over a century. How much more time do we give them? More importantly, why are so very few in the media recognizing that non-detection of dark matter is a crisis? Misleading the public by assuming its truth is dishonest. A placeholder for ignorance is just that: ignorance hoping for promotion to reality in the future. Stop treating it like a fact. Be open to alternatives.The case of dark matter shows that some education in philosophy of science and history of science helps you interpret claims. Science’s biggest reason for being taken seriously is evidence. You can’t expect people to believe in things forever when there is no evidence.  It can’t be taken seriously when someone’s pet theory needs it. In this case, the consensus trusts the pet theory. But where is the bold prediction that dark matter confirms? Where is the allowance for falsification? Are the believers in touch with reality? Dark matter may turn up some day, but we’d like to see less bombast, more humility, and more willingness to be proved wrong. Until then, dark matter and dark energy are the cosmologists’ pseudoscientific ghosts. Another ghost is natural selection which, as we will continue to see, is being used by scientists as a ghostly agent that no biologist or geneticist can nail down with any confidence. That one is not only a placeholder for ignorance, a vacuous idea, and a self-refuting concept; it is a weapon against critics of Darwinism.

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Elizabeth WilliamsDTN Special CorrespondentINDIANOLA, Iowa (DTN) — A 67-acre tract of farmland in Sioux County, Iowa, brought $18,300 per acre at auction earlier this month.In September, Hertz Farm Management had 10 sales at $10,000 or more per acre and eight sales above $11,000 per acre for corn and soybean ground, CEO Randy Hertz told DTN.These sales may be isolated cases in today’s market, but the trend of steady-to-slightly higher land values is not. Farmland brokers report sales around the Midwest continue to attract strong buying interest, primarily from farmers.Farm profits have been hard to come by in recent years and are no longer the driving force of the land market. Instead, farmland values’ stability has helped farmers weather the storm of low commodity prices. But with little change seen to agriculture’s economic outlook, DTN takes a look at what’s holding land values up — inventory, interest rates, income and investment — and what it would take for them to tumble in this two-part series, Land’s Linchpin.LOW INVENTORY MEETS LIMITED INCENTIVE TO SELLFarmland owners have few incentives to sell.In the old days, a retiring farm couple would sell the farm, buy a house in town and live comfortably in retirement. They didn’t necessarily want to rent their farm because the prevailing crop share leases were risky.In contrast, today’s cash rents are relatively risk-free, and it doesn’t take a large number of rental acres to generate a secure retirement income for a frugal farm couple. For an older couple looking for a safe investment, renting out a farm is attractive, providing a 2.5% to 3% return in annual cash rental income compared to the less than 2% return they’d earn on a certificate of deposit at a bank.In fact, 60% of the farmland in Iowa is owned by people 65 years and older.“People like owning land,” said Winnie Stortzum, a farmland broker with Farmers National Company in Arcola, Illinois. “They know the investment. They like the investment, and they are comfortable with it.”Stortzum said he spoke with a 73-year-old investor who bought a farm for $10,550 per acre this spring.“He has never been married; has no heirs, no nieces or nephews. He said, ‘I know I shouldn’t be buying land at this age, but I just like the investment.’ And he is looking into charities to leave his land to,” Stortzum said.Tax laws also disincentivize farmland sales. If you hold your land until you die, your heirs get a step-up in basis and do not have to pay capital gains tax on the farmland if they sell it for market value at the time of your death. If, however, you sell that land while you are alive, you pay tax on all the capital gain since you bought or inherited the ground. Consequently, most farmland sales today are estate sales.Another reason farm owners aren’t selling: They don’t need to. Eighty-two percent of Iowa farmland is owned free of debt, according to a 2017 survey by Iowa State University. This is up from 62% in 1982 and 78% in 2012.“That provides huge stability in the land market,” Hertz said.Despite lower farm profits and declining working capital, lenders are not pressuring for a large number of land sales because many farmers have adequate net worth to weather lean times. A recent report by USDA’s Economic Research Service that looked at measures of solvency, liquidity and repayment capacity found that only 10% to 15% of farms were classified as being under financial stress.It’s important to remember that not all farmers are losing money, either, said Howard Halderman with Halderman Farm Management and Real Estate Services, based in Wabash, Indiana. “Farmers have had the opportunity to sell over $4 cash corn and over $10 soybeans the past three to four years and over two to three weeks” each time, he told DTN.The tough growing season has also created regional basis opportunities.“And this fall, cash basis for corn in southern Minnesota was 5 to 10 cents over the Chicago futures price when it’s usually 40 cents under the Chicago price,” said Moe Russell with Russell Consulting Group in Panora, Iowa. That’s because buyers are worried about availability of quality grain, he said.“Farmers who are good marketers have been able to hold their own financially, even in these tough times,” he said.Also, not all places had crop failures or lower-than-average yields this year. Corn yields in the area of that eye-popping farmland sale this year are over 200 bushels per acre while soybeans are yielding 50-70 bpa.Farmers aren’t selling, and they are doing most of the farmland buying.“In our farm sales this year, 70% to 75% of the buyers were operating farmers,” Halderman said. “It’s been closer to 50-50 farmers to investors the past few years.”INTEREST RATES DRAW ACCOLADESIn agriculture, you can’t say enough good things about low interest rates.“It keeps interest expenses low for operating farmers,” said farm consultant Russell.“When interest rates on bank CDs are frustratingly low, farmland investment is attractive,” said Stortzum.“People look at hard assets that retain value [rather than invest in financial instruments],” noted Texas A&M economist Charles Gilliland.Low interest rates make borrowing for land purchases more affordable and keep the cost of servicing debt payments low.“I borrowed some money to buy some farms and locked in 3.25%, fixed for 10 years,” said Murray Wise, a farmland broker and investor. “I kind of felt sorry for the banker.”The general economy also benefits from low interest rates, he said, by forestalling a recession. “The prime rate at 5 and moving down is a positive sign for the economy. And all the big banks are making phenomenal money with a rather conservative portfolio.”SAFETY NET PAYMENTS HELP CASH FLOWOhio State University ag economist Barry Ward said the safety net in agriculture is pretty strong.“Subsidized crop insurance helps put a floor in place. ARC-PLC government payments aren’t that high now, but still protect a significant downside. And Market Facilitation Program (MFP) payments and the prevent plant program this year have helped farmers with cash flow,” Ward explained.USDA authorized $14 billion for MFP payments this growing season that will be divided up into three payments, the first of which farmers have already received. The remaining two are dependent on the status of trade negotiations, with USDA currently planning on cutting checks in November and January.Farmers with prevented planting claims this year will also be paid an additional 10% under a disaster assistance bill.Ward said the unfortunate part of that arrangement is there’s no knowing how long support will continue since both of those are ad hoc programs.That uncertainty, along with other challenges to corn demand, could lead to tighter incomes over time.“There’s a question mark on the ethanol industry, so we’ll see what happens there,” Ward said.SECTION 1031 TAX-DEFERRED LAND EXCHANGES FACILITATE DEVELOPMENTFarmland continues to be converted to suburban houses and business sites. A recent study by the American Farmland Trust found that 31 million acres were lost to development between 1992 and 2012, including 11 million acres of the nation’s best agricultural land.For perspective, that’s 175 acres per hour of agricultural land lost to development, or 3 acres per minute.In the Texas Panhandle, as around the U.S., these exchanges are helping to prop up farm and ranch values, Gilliland said.“Landowners surrounding cities, such as Lubbock, look for other ag property to exchange into and avoid paying high capital gains taxes on land they sold for development,” he said.Land exchanges are not a huge portion of land sales, but they are still significant. The Iowa chapter of the Realtors Land Institute estimated in 2019 that potential buyers using 1031 Exchanges influenced up to 20% of the farmland auctions, either by buying or bidding.(KM/ES/AG)© Copyright 2019 DTN/The Progressive Farmer.

first_imgBy Lalit K JhaWashington, Nov 3 (PTI) US President Donald Trump will use golf diplomacy to further strengthen his personal rapport with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe during his upcoming visit to Japan.Japan is the first stop of Trump on his maiden five- nation Asia trip as the US president.Trump, 71, will embark on a 12-day trip to Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam, the Philippines and Hawaii from today till November 14.On Sunday afternoon, the US president and 63-year-old Abe will play golf with Japanese professional golfer Hideki Matsuyama, Takehiro Shimada, Minister of Communications and Cultural Affairs at the Embassy of Japan said here ahead of Trumps visit to Japan.Notably about 60 years ago, 1957, in June, Abes father, Prime Ministers Nobusuke Kishi, played golf with then US President Dwight D Eisenhower at the Burning Tree golf course.”And they had very nice time and I heard that at that time, the president hit the – almost like 72 or 74, and prime minister Kishi only 99,” Shimada said.Asked by the president, Eisenhower then said golf is a kind of sports that you cannot play with whom you dont like.”That is his comment. So I hope that even the Prime Minister Abe would have good time and whatever the score he may hit to deepen – to make use of this opportunity to deepen his personal tie with the president,” the Japanese diplomat said.Trump would spend two nights and three days in Japan during which he will hold a wide range of talks with top Japanese leaders, including his sixth meeting with Abe in less than a year.advertisementAbe and Trump has had six meetings since the latters election and the two have spoken over phone as many as 16 times.While North Korea is expected to dominate the talks, Trump is likely to reiterate his iron-clad commitment to Japan, officials here said.”The most important part of the two leaders to discuss is how to strengthen the ironclad US-Japan alliance and this alliance covers almost everything, from the security issues to the economic issues…I am sure that he will discuss almost every aspect of the Asian region challenges,” he said.Trumps visit to Japan, he hoped, will enhance peace and stability in Asia-Pacific region.”Japan-US alliance is the cornerstone of that peace and stability, and alliance is stronger than ever,” he said, adding that Abes success in reinforcing Japans strong ties with United States was one of the factors that led to his overwhelming electoral victory last month.Trumps visit to Japan comes at an opportune moment for them to discuss issues facing international community and demonstrate the world the strong bond between the two countries amidst the increasingly severe security environment surrounding the Asia-Pacific region, he said.Noting that Japan remains deeply concerned about the threat posed by North Korea, he said Japan fully supports the US position, that all options are on the table when it comes to North Korea.”Now is the time to exert utmost pressure. We especially appreciate the new sanctions the United States imposed against North Korea last week. We will explore how we can strengthen and reinforce the UN-backed sanctions regime during President Trumps visit,” he said. PTI LKJ UZMlast_img read more

first_imgIndia opened their Hockey World League (HWL) Final campaign with a resolute 1-1 draw against defending champions Australia at the Kalinga Stadium on Friday.Mandeep Singh gave India the lead in the 20th minute but Jeremy Hayward successfully converted a penalty corner in the 21st minute to pull Australia level.Australia earned as many as six penalty corners but could convert only one as the Indian defence stood tall.India got three penalty corners — two after Mandeep’s goal but could not capitalise on them.Akashdeep Singh came closest to making it 2-1 as a deflection hit the side-bar in the 51st minute.Akashdeep could have given India the lead in the 17th minute as he met a crisp cross and with only the goalkeeper Tyler Lovell to beat but he ended up hitting the ball on to the onrushing Australian custodian.But Mandeep gave India the lead three minutes later as he received a cross from Lalit Upadhyay from the right and employed a backhander which went past Lovell.Australia’s response was swift. Hayward drag-flicked past Indian goalkeeper Akash Chikte to make it 1-1.India got two penalty corners but Rupinder Pal Singh’s efforts were not good enough to trouble the Aussie defence.Later, Australia enjoyed a good 10-15 minutes of possession as the visitors sent a lot of men forward to get into the lead. But they couldn’t turn their possession into a goal as the Indian young defenders responded well under pressure.India got out of the phase of inactivity as they got a penalty corner in the 52nd minute. But Birendra Lakra mistrapped the push as the chance went abegging.advertisementAustralia tried to break the Indian defence but the latter was determined to earn a point from the match.Sjoerd Marijne-coached India will meet England in their second match of Pool B on Saturday.”We got several chances throughout the game to create goals. We will focus them to convert them into goals in next games,” Indian captain Manpreet Singh said after the draw.Marijne said: “We put up an improved performance. We did really well as a team but we have to improve in some areas including converting penalty corners into goals.”Earlier in the inaugural match on Friday, Germany defeated England 2-0 to start their campaign in a dominating fashion. Germany scored through Mats Grambusch (19th) and Christopher Ruhr (25th).last_img read more
