International Women’s Day greetings

first_imgAs Guyana joins the world in observing International Women’s Day today, greetings have poured in reflecting on, recognising and celebrating women.This year’s theme is “Think Equal, Build Smart, Innovate for Change” – is a focus on innovative ways of advancing gender equality and the empowerment of women especially in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Design (STEM).More can be done to involve women in various areas – PPPAgainst this backdrop, the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) acknowledged the invaluable contributions of women in the country’s development, noting that more can be done despite Guyanese women already having been integral, in every field, in the forward movement. “The Party stands proud of its record which saw the implementation of policies and programmes that made a positive impact on the advancement of women and gender equality during its tenure in Government,” the Party said.It went on to express dismay at the reversal of many of these policies and programmes by the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change Government, which has been compounded with the imposition of 200 new taxes, the loss of 30,000 jobs, and the placement of VAT on health services, electricity and water rates, among others.“We believe that more can be done so that our nation can benefit from the involvement of our women and the employment of their skills and talents in various areas. In this regard, we commit to leading with the specific aim of putting in place policies that will enable the upliftment of Guyana’s women. We know a brighter day is on the horizon. Let us commit to working towards that. Happy International Women’s day!” the PPP stated.GAWU commits to the fight for better, equal work environmentMeanwhile, the Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU) has applaud the political, social and economic achievements of the women in Guyana and around the World.“We thank our womenfolk for their contribution towards the strides made in our nation’s development… On this International Women’s Day, let us all promise to work towards building a better country and work for the realisation of equal opportunities of our womenfolk  for fair and respectful treatment of women at the workplace and throughout society, and encourage their all-round development as, together, we strive to build a prosperous country,” GAWU said.The Union further committed to continue fighting for a better working environment in Guyana, where men and women can work harmoniously; a society free of violence and discrimination, and where equal opportunities are available for all workers and where together everyone can “Think equal, build smart, innovate for change”.GPSU calls on men to support women’s developmentOn the other hand, the Guyana Public Service Union (GPSU) calls for urgent action to be taken to eradicate all manmade and unwarranted obstacles that often obstruct the progress, enlightenment, development, happiness and fulfilment of the dreams of women. “Striving towards these achievements must attract and have the fullest support of the men folk which should be done most willingly with much zest, zeal and pride. It is therefore necessary to call on the males again to treat their colleagues who are women with respect and assist them in their personal development and aspirations,” the Union implores.To this end, the GPSU committed itself to taking the necessary steps to continue contributing to the achievement of the desired and noble goals of women.UNFurthermore, Secretary General of the United Nations (UN), António Guterres, in his message this year’s theme calls for the reimagining and rebuilding of the world so it works for everyone.This means addressing the “underrepresentation and lack of retention of women in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics And Design,” by challenging stereotypes that limit girls’ ambitions and dreams to pursue these disciplines, ensuring equality of opportunity, and increasing the number of women decision-makers in these fields.According to the Executive Director of UN Women, Chilean President Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, this also means ensuring women are “not only consumers of innovation,” but that they are engaged in “both design and execution of solutions” that can then address the “unique needs of women and girls, from the creation of decent work to delivery of products, services and infrastructure for women in all walks of life.”last_img read more

Brain Size: Another Evolutionary Assumption Shot in the Head

first_img(Visited 49 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Brain size can’t be used as an independent measure of fitness, five evolutionary anthropologists contend.How long have evolutionists told us that our relative brain size gave us the fitness edge as we evolved from apes?  That assumption has been called into question by Jeroen B. Smaers and four European colleagues in a new paper in PNAS (Smaers et al., “Comparative analyses of evolutionary rates reveal different pathways to encephalization in bats, carnivorans, and primates,” PNAS October 15, 2012, doi: 10.1073/pnas.1212181109).First, Smaers & friends pointed out the long history of the assumption.  A summary of the paper on Science Daily says,Dr Jeroen Smaers (UCL Anthropology and UCL Genetics, Evolution & Environment), lead author of the study said: “When using brain size relative to body size as a measure of intelligence, the assumption has always been that this measure is primarily driven by changes in brain size. It now appears that the relationship between changes in brain and body size in animals is more complex than has long been assumed.“Changes in body size often occur independently of changes in brain size and vice versa. Moreover, the nature of these independent changes in brain and body size, are different in different groups of animals.”Brain size and body size interact in evolution, they claim, and interact differently in bats, carnivores, and primates.  It’s incorrect to assume, therefore, that natural selection is simply trying to increase neuronal capacity when brain size increases relative to body size.  It’s possible, as with some species of bats, that evolution favored some species with smaller bodies to improve maneuverability, while leaving brain size intact.  More often than not, they inferred, nature seemed to be selecting for body size, not brain size.That’s why Science Daily used the headline from the UCL press release, “Evolution mostly driven by brawn, not brains.”  No, it’s not a return to “might makes right.”  It’s an acknowledgement that evolutionists have been misinterpreting the evidence.The problem is deeper, though, and many touch on many other evolutionary assumptions.  “Considering that one-way tradeoff mechanisms are unlikely to provide satisfactory evolutionary explanations,” they wrote, “we introduce an analytical framework that describes and quantifies all possible evolutionary scenarios between two traits.”Because of the disconnect they inferred in animal body/brain dynamics, they concluded that “Our approach allows a more detailed interpretation of correlated trait evolution and variation in the underlying evolutionary pathways.”  Focusing on one trait to the exclusion of others “confounds the effects” and thereby risks “hiding important aspects that may contribute to explaining animal diversity.”Being evolutionists, they would never conclude that animal bodies and brains are intelligently tailored for their lifestyle needs, no matter how clear the adaptive evidence.  Instead, their take-home lesson is “that relative brain size can not be used unequivocally as evidence of selection for intelligence.”Someone should tally up the debunked evolutionary assumptions we have uncovered in these pages.  A quick search on “evolutionary assumption” got 63 hits; there are undoubtedly more.Project: Write up a description of evolutionary theory, one phrase per line.  Then link a scientific finding (like this one) that debunks the assumptions behind each statement.  Will there be anything left?last_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — November 13, 2017

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ryan Martin 11-13-17An active pattern settles in over the next 10 days and will allow no more than 2 to 3 days of dry weather in-between weather systems. The map below shows cumulative rain totals from the next 3 systems over the coming 10 days. We outline these below.We have high pressure off to the west this morning, and are still dealing with some lingering rains in far eastern parts of the state. Those will move out and that high will slowly track into NW Ohio into this afternoon. This high will bring cooler air today, even with sunshine, but on the backside tomorrow, south winds should allow for some minor moderation. However, our thoughts from last week of temps potentially getting above normal are long gone, and a move back to normal will be about all we can do. Either way, sun the next two days will feel better than the dreary close to the weekend, or even the start to the day today in the east.Our next system arrives Wednesday afternoon and lingers through Wednesday overnight. It will bring some moisture with it, but not a huge amount. We are looking for that front to bring .05”-.3” over about 60% of the state. There can be some lingering light action past sunset Thursday morning in the east. But, this event looks to be losing its punch as it moves east. Our best precipitation develops near sunset Wednesday night over central Ohio.We should move back to some drier weather to finish Thursday and for the start of Friday. However, we have a much stronger frontal complex on the way to finish the week and start the weekend. Clouds will increase late Friday afternoon and light rains start by midnight Friday night. The rains intensify into Saturday morning and midday, with the potential for thunderstorms, particularly north and west Saturday afternoon. Rains will be the heaviest from mid-morning through sunset Saturday night over the state. All told, we like rains of .25”-.75” over 100% of the state, and we won’t rule out a push toward 1” in spots in far NW Ohio. Winds will become very gusty Saturday afternoon as well, likely averaging 15-30 mph, and those winds hold into Sunday.Weather condition go drier for Sunday and Monday, although Sunday we may be stuck with some lingering clouds over a large part of the state. Colder air comes in behind that system on the aforementioned strong northwest winds, and your coldest day will be Sunday.Clouds start to push back into the state next Tuesday ahead of another fast moving low coming up from the southwest. Rains may not start in earnest until midday Tuesday or even Tuesday afternoon, but will continue through the overnight and into Wednesday mid-morning. The rains are expected to total .05”-.5” over about 80% of the state. We do not expect enough drying for field work ahead of this event, and so these rains will just add to the delays as we move toward Thanksgiving. We should be dry for the balance of next Wednesday afternoon.For the extended period, we look to start it off dry for Thanksgiving Day itself. However the cause for this dryness on Thanksgiving Day will be a strong upper level, Canadian high diving into the eastern part of the US, which means we can see temps below normal with a cold shot for Thanksgiving Day. At this time, we are not going to talk this up as a massive cold shot, but will watch the evolution of the high and its track southeast. On the backside of the high we can see minor threat of precipitation for late on Black Friday (24th) into the 25th. Moisture totals do not look impressive, but we will keep an eye out for a few hundredths to a tenth or two over about 60% of the state.last_img read more
