Teah Dennis Extends Loan with Al-Ahli

first_imgLiberia’s young international central defender Dennis Teah has reportedly signed a contract extension with Jordanian football club Al-Ahli (Amman) for another year, after an impressive season.The 23-year-old’s debut season ended with the 1st division Jordanian club on May 27 this year where he missed one of nearly 35 games; he scored two goals with more than five assists.The dependable central defender most often and interchangeably plays central defense or right-back defender for Al-Ahli.In an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer yesterday, Dennis confirmed the extension and said he would return to Jordan at the end of the month.“The season was ok, I played all the games, except one, because I got two yellow cards which is equivalent to a red card — but overall I was impressive and so the team extended my contract,” Dennis said.He indicated that he made a breakthrough with the club without injuries and is grateful to God for becoming a key part of a team which finished 5th on the 1st division league in Jordan.The Liberian growing professional player didn’t mince his words to thank BYC family for its support and said his success on the team was rooted from the discipline which was instilled in him by the club.Dennis was originally scheduled to stay with DC United in the USA, but controversially came back to Liberia.Dennis also played for LPRC Oilers. Acting LFA president Musa Shannon, who is also Dennis’ advisor said the association is proud of Dennis’ performance in Jordan and is positive that he would play in one or two of the top flight leagues in Spain, England, Italy, Germany or France.“Teah is a big player, one of the best and young players to come out of our administration, and a true product and we will continue to support and wish him the best,” Shannon said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Geology: A Science in Constant Revision

first_img(Visited 385 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Slow-and-gradual uniformitarian geology is so 1830. Get with the times: fast, rapid, dynamic forces and theory revisions.Scientists have trouble learning about events in human history, let alone unobserved, unrecorded history. For instance, six researchers writing in PNAS say that previous estimates of death tolls from plagues in the time of Emperor Justinian (541 to 750 CE) are way off. The plague was nowhere near as catastrophic as most writers have long assumed. If this wrong about history with written records to draw from, how wrong could geologists be about events assumed to be hundreds of times as old with no eyewitnesses?Wolfe Creek Crater younger than previously thought (University of Portsmouth). Scientists who thought this crater in Australia was 300,000 Darwin Years old were way off. The new number is 120,000 Darwin Years. By all appearances, it is far younger than that. Darwinians, however, love their long ages, and don’t want to give ammunition to young-earthers. 120,000 Darwin Years is now the consensus truth! Cosmic radionuclide dating says so! See the latest scenario in Meteoritics and Planetary Science that asserts, “Considering the geomorphic setting, the most likely age of the crater is” 120,000 years, plus or minus 9,000 years. This comes from experts who were 2/3 wrong about the previous consensus estimate.Gigantic tsunami pushed boulders as heavy as tanks inland, scientists say (Fox News Science). Geologists tend to underestimate the power of water. Look at the boulders in the photo: as heavy as tanks, these rocks were lifted high above a cliff in a tsunami in Oman just 1,000 years ago, the article says. Creation geologists point to boulders as big as houses in the Tapeats Sandstone, the first sedimentary layer in the Grand Canyon (see ICR). The forces that plucked those boulders and redeposited them at the top of the Great Unconformity must have been stronger than anything seen in modern times.Arizona’s Barringer Meteor CraterExtra-Terrestrial Impacts May Have Triggered “Bursts” of Plate Tectonics (Geological Society of America). One good-size meteor can ruin your whole theory. Surely geologists have figured out plate tectonics, haven’t they?When—and how—the Earth’s surface evolved from a hot, primordial mush into a rocky planet continually resurfaced by plate tectonics remain some of the biggest unanswered questions in earth science research. Now a new study, published in Geology, suggests this earthly transition may in fact have been triggered by extra-terrestrial impacts.“We tend to think of the Earth as an isolated system, where only internal processes matter,” says Craig O’Neill , director of Macquarie University’s Planetary Research Centre. “Increasingly, though, we’re seeing the effect of solar system dynamics on how the Earth behaves.”Impacts are the magic bullets that naturalistic geologists call on to explain just about everything in the solar system. Now secular geologists are invoking them to kick-start plate tectonics. Large meteors “could” do this, they speculate, as long as they were finely tuned to fit Goldilocks criteria: not too small to accomplish nothing, but not too big to destroy the Earth.Mars: we may have solved the mystery of how its landslides form (The Conversation). How can landslides travel far beyond the distances physical laws say they should be able to go? Friction should stop some landslides long before they travel as far as some of them have gone. The mystery of the “long runout landslides” is addressed by Magnarini and Mitchell in this article, who think they have a new idea based on vibration theory, vortices and strata thickness. Because Mars preserves its landslides better than Earth, they studied landslides in Valles Marineris. A big landslide, intuitively, happens quickly—within hours or even minutes. No moyboy dates required.Secular geology is like the weather in Vermont, only slower. If you don’t like it, wait five to fifty years, and it will change—sometimes by a wallop.For illustrations of how secular astronomers rely on impacts for everything, see the video by Scott Psarris, “Our Created Solar System” at CreationAstronomy.com.last_img read more

Refugee advocates shocked and dismayed over asylum changes in budget bill

first_imgOTTAWA — Refugee advocates are crying foul over proposed Liberal government changes to immigration laws that aim to keep would-be asylum seekers from entering Canada at unofficial border crossings.The Canadian Association of Refugee Lawyers says the changes would rob vulnerable refugee claimants of fundamental human-rights protections.The Liberals are proposing to prevent asylum seekers from making a refugee claim in Canada if they have made a similar claim in certain other countries, including the United States. The changes were quietly included in a 392-page omnibus budget bill tabled Monday in the House of Commons — a move that is even more upsetting to refugee advocates.Janet Dench, executive director of the Canadian Council for Refugees, says substantial changes to immigration laws like the ones being proposed ought to be given a full hearing in Parliament, rather than being slipped into a fast-tracked budget bill.Dench says her members — including more than 100 Canadian organizations that work directly with refugees and immigrants — are in a state of shock and dismay over the proposed changes, calling them a devastating attack on refugee rights in Canada.The Canadian Presslast_img read more
