Did Fossils Inspire Thunderbird Legends?

first_imgAdrienne Major thinks that the Lakota got their legend of the Thunderbird from looking at fossil pterosaurs in the badlands.  Her speculation is explored in National Geographic News.  Major thinks other world legends have their origin in fossils that ancient people observed.This hypothesis is no less speculative than the one by creationists that Indians saw live pterosaurs and the Chinese saw live dinosaurs.  Evolutionists would never consider such an idea, because they have their own myths.  They are wedded to the tale that dinosaurs and pterosaurs died out long before man appeared.  Do they know this for a fact?  No; they were not there, for one thing, and their prior commitment to evolutionary theory dictates how all data are to be interpreted.  The discovery of flexible blood vessels in a T. rex recently (see 03/24/2005) shows the extent of their commitment; rather than consider the obvious, that this unfossilized material could not be 70 million years old, they adjusted their assumptions to fit their myth.    Were the Chinese and the Lakota skilled in paleontological interpretation of disarticulated bones?  Would it not be more plausible to suggest that perhaps they saw some of these creatures before the last ones died out?  It would seem more likely that the fearsome appearance of imposing live creatures would generate better myths than would dead bones to untrained eyes.(Visited 39 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Responsible leadership the agenda at Davos

first_imgWith the global political and economic landscape changing rapidly, the World Economic Forum is urging global leaders to be more responsive and responsible. South Africa is heeding that call and is making sure the country is open for business.The World Economic Forum is calling on world leaders to be more responsive and responsible, and Team South Africa is heeding their message while also spreading the word that the country is open for business. (Image: World Economic Forum, Flickr)By Shamin ChibbaIn the coming days the snowy Alpine town of Davos in Switzerland will not be overrun by skiers and holidaymakers, but rather by leaders and thinkers as the World Economic Forum (WEF) kicks off its 47th Annual Meeting on 17 January.In light of a new global political and economic future, about 2,500 delegates from government, business, academia, civil society, media and the arts will participate in discussions around the meeting’s theme this year, “Responsive and Responsible Leadership”.The WEF says the theme calls on global leaders to adapt current systems so as to foster growth that benefits everyone.It says that responsive leadership will answer to the frustrations experienced by those not benefiting from economic and social development with what is called inclusive development and equitable growth. “Their situation will only become more uncertain with the onset of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and its impact on future employment,” said WEF founder and executive chairman Klaus Schwab.South Africa calls for inclusive economic developmentThough Team South Africa heads to Davos with the theme “South Africa is open for business”, its strongest message is that the country will promote economic development for all its citizens to overcome economic inequality. This will tie in with the WEF’s overarching theme.The country’s proposed reforms in the near future will address the National Health Insurance initiative, issues affecting women and gender equality, land redistribution, rural development, and agriculture and forestry. The government will broaden access to telecommunications, support small business development, and improve growth in tourism.It also aims to allocate R45-billion to promote industrialisation, economic transformation and sustainable resource management.Find out more about Team South Africa’s key messages for Davos 2017.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

From #Jan25 to Tahrir: What Comes Next for the Internet Revolution?

first_imgguest author 1 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Guest author Ahmed Zidan lives in Egypt and is the editor of Mideast Youth. The Egyptian protesters have overthrown Mubarak after nearly 30 years. Egypt has come second in row after Tunisia. The two revolutions, the Tunisian and the Egyptian, have succeeded. Egypt has seen its first people’s revolution, and over 18 days many things changed until the regime was totally uninstalled.Let’s trace the protests back across the Mediterranean. The self-immolation of Mohamed Bouazizi in Sidi Bouzid was the spark for the massive Tunisian protests that overthrew then-president Ben Ali. The Tunisian protests, in turn, were the spark for Egypt’s #Jan25. And it’s very relevant to name it #Jan25, because it was totally Internet driven. (Other names include the Jan. 25 Revolution, Revolution of Anger, and lately Tahrir Revolution, an Arabic equivalent for Revolution of Liberation.) It’s not an overstatement to say that #SidiBouzid is the sole parent of #Jan25, and created a domino effect that will not stop in Egypt.Mideast Youth was hacked after an attack by anti-Kurdish groups. This came as a result of a video we recently launched promoting the Kurdish cause for human rights, as well as writing about the upcoming Kurdish demonstrations, which was apparently the final straw for these hackers. If you know anyone who can help, please get in touch by email, or you can also donate to help us make the move to new servers affordable.This is the first organized revolution of its kind in the history of mankind. It began with a Facebook page We Are All Khaled Said that called for this uprising. The social media tools were very critical in sparking these protests; the Internet is unmistakably the origin of the Egyptian protests. And once it broke loose, the Internet proved to be a very important tool for sharing news about the different demonstrations around Egypt.However, momentum was already building and the Egyptians already knew their route to the streets. That’s why when the Internet was blocked around the country in the early hours of Jan. 28, as well as a total blackout on all mobile networks, it never affected the ongoing protests and actually backfired on the government: netizens marched into the streets instead of checking Twitter trends online. Monday, Feb. 7: Wael Ghonim, an Egyptian Google employee, blogger, and the admin of the page “We Are All Khalid Said” broken into tears on a satellite television channel after he saw the victims of the protests. Wael saw them for the first time after his release following a 12 day detention. Wael’s tears provided a big boost to the revolution and begun a countdown for the ruling regime.Day of Egypt’s Love, Tuesday, Feb. 8: Another March of Millions: One of the most crowded day in the square. Tahrir to Egypt is definitely like Twitter to the Internet. The double Ts have pushed this revolution miles forwards.Friday of Resolve, Feb. 11: The demonstrators kept their heads high demanding the overthrow of the regime, regardless all the concessions offered. Another call for a March of Millions. Cairo, Alexandria, and others have witnessed large protests. The victorious moment came at 6 p.m. local time. Cairo streets went mad. Celebrations were everywhere for the jubilant protesters: car horns, flags waving, dancing, singing, and fainting in disbelief. The French word dégagé seems to have a magical effect against the autocratic regimes. The word is “trending” in the streets of the Middle East. The Tunisian scenario of implementing democracy by the people has now also occurred in Egypt. And what happened in Egypt, by far, will not stay in Egypt.The question now is what comes after? My banner at the first March of Millions was “This is Egypt, not Iran.” I’m not an Islamophobe because phobia implies an irrational fear of certain things, which isn’t the case with political Islam. I have two fears at the moment. The first fear is at the international/regional level. The peace treaty with Israel is very important to retain, regardless of the orientation of the forthcoming president. It’s a pivotal point for a long-term peace in the region, plus, it’s a mutual interest for both the people of Egypt and Israel.The second fear is a local one: political Islam. Political Islam is the main driving force behind some of the most horrible terrorist attacks in the history of mankind, and also the core base for states like Iran, and groups like Qa’ida, Taliban, Hezbollah and the Muslim Brotherhood. The organization, financing and resources of the Muslim Brotherhood as an establishment in Egypt dates back to 1928, and has paved the way for terrorist groups like Al-Gama’a al-Islamiyya and Al Takfir Wal Hijra.The Jihadi school of thought is the world’s most challenging danger at the moment – this is not Western media agitprop, but simply a reality. However, I believe that the youth here in Egypt, or there in Tunisia, are aware of this – not all of them, but a significant percentage.I’m betting on a new trend of #revolutions in 2011 will sweep across the region. I think that they will resemble the 1989 revolutions that resulted in the dissolution of the totalitarian communist USSR. Tunisia and Egypt were the beginning, but similar uprisings in Iran, Libya, Algeria, Yemen, Bahrain, Qatar and maybe also Kurdistan are highly expected.These revolutions will not turn out to reproduce a Lenin-USSR or a Khomeini-Iran, two of the most famous revolutions of the last century that produced more corrupt and totalitarian regimes than pre-revolution. The Internet revolutions are different; the youth who have called for them are very aware of the risks to individual liberties and minorities in the region and the world as a whole and that may accompany the birth of a new Islamist state.Here comes our challenge as intellectuals: Analyze, write, explain, and debate with the mainstream, whether in Tunisia, Egypt, or any other country in the region, about the hazards of political Islam.Flickr CC photo by M. Soli Tags:#international#web Day of Anger, Tuesday, Jan. 25. The warm up to the protests: The day that commemorates the National Day of Police, whose unlimited power was a key point in the unfolding protests. Batons, water cannons and teargas grenades provided Egypt with its most popular sightseeing throughout the day.Friday of Anger, Jan. 28: High pressure point, or I’ve smelt this odor before!: The day kicked off with a total communication blackout, and didn’t end with Egyptians sensitized to teargas. The protesters used a new tactic: demonstrating in many areas simultaneously. It distracted the police forces, who retreated around 6 p.m., leaving behind a state of chaos. The military was deployed and the night-time curfew announced. The different demonstration points lead to the major focal point and the core of the protests afterwards: Tahrir Square. Teargas withdrawal effects were a very common complaint for protesters after the mysterious evaporation of police forces.March of Millions, Tuesday, Feb. 1: Tahrir Carnival. That was really one of the greatest days of this uprising. Hundreds of thousands gathered in the square, singing, chanting, joking, laughing and sharing stories. It was indeed a Tahrir unconference.Battle of Tahrir, Wednesday, Feb. 2: A bloody day in the square. A new turning point, as pro-Mubarak forces, inspired by his speech the previous night, appeared for the first time, along with, according to some reports, thugs hired by the regime. They clashed with the protesters in Tahrir Square, the peaceful protesters outnumbering the pro-Mubarak groups, but the latter were riding horses and camels, and were armed with swords, whips, clubs, stones, rocks, pocket knives, and reportedly, Molotov cocktails, ammunition and and late-night hit men. At the end of the day there were eight dead and dozens of causalities among the protesters. Some commentators have called it the Egyptian Tiananmen Square.Sunday of the Martyrs, Feb. 6: Christian hymns and Muslim prayers side-by-side in the square to honor the martyrs of the uprising. By the end they would number at least 300, according to many reports, as well as six Bouazizi copycats who self-immolated, 13 policemen, and thousands of injured.

No More Crippled iBooks? Jailbreaking Tool’s Update Claims to Fix Issues

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#Apple#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Last week, Apple updated its e-reader app iBooks with several minor new features and one very unwelcome tweak that affected users of jailbroken phones. Jailbreakers who downloaded the update were no longer able to use iBooks on their mobile phone. “Apple deliberately crippled my device,” wrote an angry blogger on Social Apples after realizing what had occurred.Today, an update to the jailbreaking tool Sn0wbreeze may have addressed this issue, accordingtoreports from mobile bloggers and Twitter.According to the Twitter account @iH8sn0w, which is behind the Sn0wbreeze jailbreaking tool, a new update (version 2.2.1) has been released which supposedly fixes the iBooks issue “100%.” It also addresses issues affecting Verizon iPhone jailbreakers on iOS 4.2.6, issues for users of the Windows Classic theme and it adds a drag-and-drop feature for moving IPSW files (the iPhone firmware files used during the jailbreak process).DRM Breaks iBooks on Jailbroken Phones The problem with iBooks, in case you missed the news, has to do with e-books protected by FairPlayDRM (digital rights management). When Apple updated iBooks last week, it also introduced code which allowed it to detect jailbroken devices. When a jailbreak is detected, a dialog box appears, reading: “There is a problem with the configuration of your iPhone. Please restore with iTunes and reinstall iBooks.”Apple introduced this feature (err…bug?) to protect books whose content was locked down using DRM technology. Not all e-books have DRM, so the problem isn’t necessarily affecting all jailbreakers at this point – only those whose library includes DRM-protected titles.iBooks Fixed?The update to Sn0wbreeze reportedly fixes the problem, although we cannot verify this here on our end. (Please comment if you’ve tried it!) However, according to some forum postings, there is mixed success in using the new software. One person wrote “all is good,” while another shouted “it doesn’t work!!!!” In other words, proceed with caution, folks.Sn0wbreeze is a different variation of jailbreaking tool that the others we typically cover (greenpois0n, redsn0w, etc.) as it allows you to create custom, jailbroken firmware files in advance of the hacking attempt and then update your device using that new firmware. For those who also unlock their phones (unlocking, or “SIM unlocking,” lets you use your phone on other carriers’ networks), sn0wbreeze is often the preferred method because it won’t affect the iPhone’s baseband.Regardless of whether or not Sn0wbreeze is the tool that fixes the issue with iBooks, it’s only a matter of time before the jailbreak community as a whole addresses the problem. Of course, we have a simpler solution ourselves: just don’t use iBooks. Amazon Kindle and a host of others provide reasonable alternatives to Apple’s iBooks e-bookstore and reader app. You can live without it.Update: A clarification on this. @iH8Sn0w implemented the fix within the app Sn0wbreeze. The fix itself was created by @comex. sarah perezcenter_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

New Life for Old Electric Vehicle Batteries

first_imgSupply of batteries still inconsistentBecause sales of electric vehicles are still small, there isn’t a steady supply of the batteries available to Green Charge and others with the same idea. But the idea is promising.General Motors is using five Volt batteries to help power a data center that’s part of its testing facility, The Times said. Photovoltaic panels and two wind turbines produce electricity at the net-zero energy facility, and the batteries can either store or deliver energy, depending on the need. The Volt batteries hold enough electricity to power the system for four hours.The first of the Nissan-Green Charge systems, which incorporates four Leaf batteries, will be installed at a Nissan facility later this summer to reduce peak demands, the newspaper said, and the systems are apparently now ready for the commercial market.While Leaf and GM are finding ways to repurpose old batteries, Tesla and Mercedes-Benz both have announced plans for battery storage systems for residential and business use that incorporate new lithium-ion batteries. The battery systems are built on technology developed for electric vehicles. The batteries that power electric vehicles like the Nissan Leaf and Chevy Volt still have as much as 80 percent of their storage capacity when they’re replaced, and figuring out what to do with them has been a headache for manufacturers.These used batteries are no longer strong enough to run a vehicle, but unlike the cars themselves, they are difficult to take apart and recycle. Now both Nissan and General Motors have come up with a solution that not only solves, or at least delays, the recycling issue but offers businesses a way of reducing their power bills. The New York Times reports that Nissan has just formed a partnership with Green Charge Networks to use old Leaf batteries in stationary storage systems designed to reduce the “demand charges” that businesses pay utilities.As Green Charge explains at its website, demand charges represent as much as 50 percent of the power bill for a typical business. While residential customers pay only for the power they use, business also pay for the highest amount of power they use at any time during the billing cycle. This helps utilities defray the cost of building and maintaining the grid, which must be designed to meet peak loads.Businesses and institutions that have battery banks to even out their use of electricity and lower their peak demands on the grid can save money, and that’s where the electric vehicle batteries come into play. Green Charge will use the Leaf batteries to build these systems, and General Motors says it will develop a similar system for used Volt batteries and sell it on its own. Lots of life left in Leaf batteriesVic Shao, the founder and CEO of Green Charge, said Leaf batteries have a capacity of 24 kWh when new, so at 80 percent of that when they’re repurposed they would still be able to produce nearly twice the power as the larger of the two Tesla batteries, a 10 kWh model.The number of batteries and other parts of the system can be scaled to meet the customer’s needs.Shao said the systems would be commercially available in the 4th quarter of the year. He did not discuss pricing, but pointed out that Green Charge doesn’t sell the battery system to its commercial customers as a stand-alone package. Rather, they engineer and install the system and then split the savings with the site host. The batteries have a 10-year guaranteed life span when Green Charge acquires them from Nissan.Because of very high demand charges for commercial customers, the systems can produce big savings. But Shao said he didn’t see the same opportunity for the residential market right now.“I struggle with that question myself,” he said. “I believe there are certain niche residential applications available on the market today perhaps. I would say for the majority of the U.S. population, grid power is reliable and cheap and there is not really a particular need for home-based energy storage, at least economically speaking. Consumers may decide to buy home energy storage systems for other reasons other than economics.”Green Charge now has more than 20 systems installed and running now, and close to 200 customers who are contracted in design, engineering and construction.last_img read more

Bangladesh win toss, elect to bat against India
