Briefly Noted

first_imgHuman Body – You Smell Like a Dog:  Bloodhounds, we know, are good at telling the direction of a scent, but it turns out that humans have that ability, too.  Researchers at UC Berkeley did experiments with human subjects to see if they could tell which direction a scent came from.  Functional MRI (fMRI) was used to monitor their brain activity.  The subjects were able to tell which nostril found the scent, especially when they sniffed.  This means that the brain can judge time of arrival – as with hearing – to sense the direction of a source.  With practice, the researchers believe, we could get pretty good at it.  Source: LiveScience.com.Ethics – Most Science Papers Are Wrong:  There is less than a 50% chance that the results of any randomly chosen scientific paper are true, warns a researcher.  Personal biases, wish fulfillment, bad sampling, poor technique, conflict of interest and other biases combine to make most research findings false.  Source: New Scientist.  But how do we know that conclusion is true?Origin of Life – Light May Favor Left Hands:  Radiation from space might preferentially destroy one form of chiral molecules like amino acids, say researchers.  If amino acids were ferried to the early earth on icy dust, this may have favored one hand over the other.  But the experiments with circularly polarized light on one amino acid – leucine – produced an excess of only 2.6% – far less than the 100% purity required for life (see online book).  Source: New Scientist.Theology – Catholic Statement Worries Darwinists:  A letter from four Austrian scientists to Science Aug. 26 expressed dismay that a Viennese Cardinal said, “evolution in the neo-Darwinian sense is not true” and that there is “overwhelming evidence for design in biology.”  They called this a political move toward dogmatism and fundamentalism reminiscent of the Galileo affair.Early Man – Another Dmanisi Skull:  Another skull has been found in the republic of Georgia near Tblisi.  This one was in the best condition of the other five that had been found earlier.  The bones, a “million years older than any widely accepted pre-human remains in Europe, have provided additional evidence that Homo erectus left Africa a half-million years or more earlier than scientists had previously thought.”  That’s a lot of time for this human group to have done more than scratch, wouldn’t one think?  Source: LiveScience.com.Amazing Birds – Chickens Have Magnetic Compass:  Chickens are not so dumb; they have magnetic radar.  Two articles on EurekAlert (EurekAlert 1, EurekAlert 2) about experiments on birds with magnets and light suggest that “birds’ orientation abilities may be more complex than previously thought and that birds may be able to interpret magnetic signals by more than one mechanism.”  See also Current Biology Volume 15, Issue 16, 23 August 2005, Pages R620-R621.Amazing Bugs – Beetles Inspire Nanotechnology:  A Cornell scientist, intrigued by how beetles could adhere to leaves when threatened, decided to imitate them.  The beetles are able to take advantage of surface tension by exuding “120,000 droplets of secreted oil, each making a bridgelike contact between the beetle’s feet and the leaf.”  Each droplet is just a few microns wide, the report on Cornell University says, but in concert, they act like two wet pieces of paper sticking together.  A beetle can cling to a palm leaf with “adhesive strengths equal to a hundred times its own body weight – the human equivalent of carrying seven cars.”  Researchers are using the principle to create small, fast transistor switches.Cell Biology – Multi-Talented Telomerase:  Telomerase, the enzyme that keep DNA tips (telomeres) from unraveling, apparently does more than control the aging of a cell.  Science Now reports that it also regulates stem cells and spurs cell growth.  It can even grow hair on mice.Darwin – What Henslow Taught Darwin:  John S. Henslow, a “kindly Professor” at Cambridge and a creationist, taught Darwin how to collect plant specimens carefully and identify varieties within a species.  Henslow was the one who recommended Darwin to be naturalist on the HMS Beagle.  Four writers in Nature (436, 643-645, 4 August 2005, doi: 10.1038/436643a) believe that Darwin took the lessons he learned from Henslow with him on the voyage, and rather than use his data on varieties for demonstrating the stability of species, as Henslow did, began to entertain ideas of species transformation.(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

OCWGA recognized for membership success

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association (OCWGA) won three awards at the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) Awards Banquet at Commodity Classic in New Orleans. OCWGA was awarded the inaugural NCGA “Reaching for Excellence” award, highest percentage increase award and highest numeric membership increase award.The growth in membership is a result of the creation of a young farmer membership program called The New Crop. OCWGA recruited over 800 students and young farmers, creating a 43% growth in membership.From the left, OCWGA project manager Ellen Gilliland, communications manager Stacie Seger, director of market development and membership Brad Moffitt, president Chad Kemp, and executive director Tadd Nicholson were recognized at Commodity Classic in New Orleans for their work with membership in Ohio.“After years of traditional recruitment, our membership demographics only reflected the people who are currently working on the farm,” said Brad Moffitt, OCWGA director of Membership and Market Development. “But there are many more important people in our industry that need to join us. By recruiting millennials, who we define as 15- to 35-year olds, we immediately increased our quality, quantity and diversity.”The New Crop is a sub-group of membership focused on preparing young adults and new professionals to be a part of a professional association. Through special communication, events and opportunities, students and young farmers learn more about the industry and how to be engaged with the issues that affect agriculture. A partnership with Beck’s Hybrids helped OCWGA get The New Crop off to a successful first year.“We are excited and honored to receive this award,” said Chad Kemp, OCWGA president. “But we are more excited for how the newly energized and growing membership will strengthen our association. The New Crop is the future of the industry and their leadership provides great comfort to me as a farmer.”The “Reaching for Excellence” award is presented to a state to spotlight new approaches and encourage implementation of such advances in other states facing similar challenges.last_img read more

His fifth season as an assistant coach with the team presented a most unexpected promotion to the job his father held over 11 different seasons, including a one-year return in 2014-15 before he died of cancer. Ryan Saunders, who is the 13th head coach in Timberwolves history, even has some of the same facial expressions and nervous tics on the sideline that his dad once displayed.The highlight of the season for the Timberwolves, after they started slowly during Jimmy Butler’s trade demand saga and before they faded late amid a slew of injuries, was their first win under Saunders, a 119-117 decision at Oklahoma City on Jan. 8 on the heels of the ouster of Thibodeau, who held the dual role of president and coach. Saunders was soaked with water by the players, a handful of whom being older than him, in a joyful postgame celebration in the visiting locker room .Though the Timberwolves wound up with a 36-46 record in 11th place in the Western Conference, players spoke often of an enlightened environment around the team after Saunders took over. While also showing an eagerness to experiment with more innovative on-court strategies, he developed a rapport with the majority of the roster.Much of the tension present last season traced to Butler’s dissent, before he was dealt to Philadelphia, but Thibodeau’s old-school style and in-game intensity never appeared to bring out the best in some of the team’s younger players.ADVERTISEMENT FILE – In this March 9, 21019, file photo, Minnesota Timberwolves interim head coach Ryan Saunders directs his players against the Washington Wizards in an NBA basketball game in Minneapolis.

Albert Pujols Is The Worst Player In Baseball

He ranks eighth all-time in home runs, seventh in extra-base hits and 10th in total bases. At his peak, he won three MVP awards and was also the best position player in baseball — according to wins above replacement (WAR)1Taking the average of Baseball-Reference.com’s and FanGraphs.com’s versions of WAR. — three times (in 2006, 2008 and 2009). Pujols’s resume makes him a surefire first-ballot Hall of Famer.But this season, a new title can be assigned to Pujols: He’s the worst player in baseball.Pujols has flat-out stunk up Angel Stadium. He’s hitting .230 (79 points below his previous career average) with an on-base plus slugging 26 percent worse than league average. Even in an age of ineffective designated hitters, Pujols has easily been the worst hitter at the position that provides the least defensive value (i.e., zero value). As a result, no player has been less valuable than Pujols this year: His -1.99 WAR ranks dead last among all players (including pitchers).If he finishes the season in last place — which seems quite possible, as L.A. continues to pencil him into its starting lineup, day after day, despite his poor numbers — Pujols will become the first modern2Since MLB’s two-league era began in 1901. position player ever to be both baseball’s best and worst player at various points in his career. The worst finish by a former No. 1 player previously belonged to the delightfully named New York Yankees second baseman Snuffy Stirnweiss. Snuffy was baseball’s top position player in 1945, when many of the league’s best (such as Ted Williams, Stan Musial and Joe DiMaggio) were serving in the military. But he was also the league’s second-worst player in 1950, a miserable season that saw him hit .216 and get traded from the 98-win Yankees to the 58-win St. Louis Browns.Here are the worst finishes by WAR for position players who were also the best in baseball at some point in their career: From the penthouse to the outhouseWorst ranks (from the bottom of MLB) in wins above replacement for players who were best in the league for at least one season, 1901–2017 Bill McKechnie1913321914 WORST SEASON PLAYERNO. 1 SEASONSINV.

That’s especially true for the Angels, who are a single game in back of the Minnesota Twins for the American League’s final wild-card berth and fighting for their postseason lives. But in a funny way, Pujols’ last-place ranking this year is also a kind of testament to how good he’s been over the course of his long, storied career.The bottom of the WAR leaderboard provides a good lesson in the difference between “ability” and “value”. Ability-wise, Pujols isn’t actually MLB’s worst baseball player — that distinction would probably go to a fringe player who was called up at midseason and rarely plays — but he has been its least valuable, in no small part because of the ample opportunities he’s received.3Pujols is third on the team in plate appearances. Simply being bad isn’t enough; in order to even get the chance to finish last in WAR, a player needs to have earned the confidence from management to let him play through a prolonged slump.That’s why, even though no former No. 1 player has sunk as low as Pujols this season, the list of league-worst players by WAR includes plenty of guys who were, at one point, extremely good at baseball. Most notably, the worst player in 1983 was the all-time hit king, Pete Rose, who — unlike Pujols — was eventually benched by the Phillies because of his poor play.

Carlos Gonzalez of the Rockies, the second-worst player this season, ranked as high as No. 15 in 2010. Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez fell from 10th-best in 2009 all the way to sixth-worst this season. And Jose Bautista of the Blue Jays, who clocks in as baseball’s 26th-worst player by WAR this year, ranked third-best as recently as 2011. It takes a great reputation to be afforded such a bad season.Since signing a massive contract with the Angels before the 2012 season, Pujols has had a few solid renaissance seasons, and he was an above-average hitter as recently as last season. So it wasn’t unreasonable for the Angels to expect him to eventually snap out of his funk at some point this season. And he may well end up with 100 runs batted in despite the poor sabermetric numbers — though it would be one of the least valuable 100-RBI seasons ever. Either way, he’s just the most glaring example of a phenomenon that probably won’t go away anytime soon. As long as there are managers dreaming of a turnaround — and ones who lack any better options4Pujols’ contract, which will pay him another $28.5 million per year for the next four seasons, may also play a role. — once-great players like Pujols will always get the chance to play themselves to the bottom of the WAR charts.
