USC routs Colorado in historic fashion

first_imgUSC’s offense has remained a point of contention for a sizable portion of the team’s fan base throughout much of the season.The No. 10 Trojans either rely too heavily on their passing game, or coach Lane Kiffin is too conservative by calling for running plays in situations that scream for a throw, the critics insist.Unparalleled · Though only playing a little more than a half, junior wide receiver Robert Woods passed Dwayne Jarrett on USC’s career receptions list after hauling in eight receptions for 132 yards and four touchdowns. – Carlo Acenas | Daily TrojanBut they were largely silenced Saturday. Senior quarterback Matt Barkley threw for 298 yards and six touchdowns to set a school and Pac-12 record for career touchdown passes, as USC (6-1, 4-1) ran past an overwhelmed Colorado team, 50-6.With the victory, the Trojans, following a two-year postseason ban, are also bowl eligible for the first time since the 2009 season.“The sky wasn’t falling,” said Kiffin during his post-game news conference. “Matt can still throw. He’s pretty good.”That much was evident. Barkley’s career total for touchdown passes now stands at 102, moving past former USC signal caller and 2004 Heisman Trophy winner Matt Leinart, who had thrown for 99 during three seasons from 2003-06. Finishing 19 of 20, Barkley’s 95 percent completion rate also broke the conference record, previously held by former UCLA quarterback Rick Neuheisel.“It’s special, it’s an honor,” Barkley said. “I’ll take credit, but I mean, I’ve been here for four years so hopefully we put some production up.”Of his six touchdown tosses, four of them safely landed in the hands of junior wide receiver Robert Woods on plays of 39, 29, 17 and three yards over a span of just 2 1/2 quarters. Barkley’s 17-yard touchdown toss also marked a significant milestone for Woods, his 217th career catch, breaking the school’s all-time receptions record previously held by Dwayne Jarrett.The third-year wideout finished with eight catches for 132 yards against the Buffaloes (1-6, 1-3).“I grew up watching all those receivers ever since I understood USC football,” said Woods, whose four touchdown receptions also marked a single-game school record. “As I accomplished what I did today, I don’t see myself above them, I just see myself being a part of them as an elite group. I just want to follow in their footsteps, to be a great receiver at USC.”USC, as a group, looked elite as well. And the squad looked fast, perhaps as the result of its use of a no-huddle, quicker-paced offense for much of the contest.Barkley’s first touchdown, a 55-yard strike to sophomore wide receiver Marqise Lee, went over the middle of the field on the team’s second play from scrimmage just 50 seconds into the game. And by the nine-minute mark of the first quarter, the Trojans already led 19-0, energizing an announced sellout crowd of 83,274 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.On the afternoon, the Trojans would finish with 458 yards of total offense, with 340 of them through the air, carving up an inexperienced and rattled secondary. The 50 points were also the highest single-game scoring total of the season.“I don’t care what pace we actually play at,” said Lee, who finished with six catches for 103 yards and one touchdown, “as long as we do what we need to do when it’s time to do it.”But as prolific as USC was offensively, it was again plagued by penalties. Entering the game, the team ranked 124th — dead last, in the Football Bowl Subdivision — in penalties per game with 10. On Saturday, the Trojans were penalized nine times for 90 yards, allowing the Buffaloes to keep some of their drives alive.During the first quarter, on Colorado’s first drive of the game, redshirt freshman Anthony Sarao was called for a personal foul penalty, helping the Buffaloes inch further downfield all the way to the 21-yard line before an ill-advised throw by quarterback Jordan Webb was intercepted by senior safety Drew McAllister in the end zone. On the day, USC forced six turnovers, including two other interceptions and three recovered fumbles.Later in the half, freshman defensive tackle Leonard Williams was penalized and subsequently ejected for punching a Colorado offensive player — classified as a flagrant foul that will be subject to review by conference officials, according to a school spokesman. It was not, though, deemed  “fighting,” which would warrant an automatic suspension.Though replays failed to establish what prompted Williams’ punch, teammates said Williams claimed he was spat on.  The penalties and Williams’ outburst prompted Kiffin to lecture his team on discipline before the Trojans retreated to the locker room for halftime.“We looked really undisciplined,” Kiffin said. “I felt bad for our fans, I felt bad for our former players. It was taking away from a really special day.”Next weekend, USC travels to Tucson to square off against Arizona. With three of its five remaining games to be played at the Coliseum, it will be the last time the Trojans leave Southern California during the regular season.“We play one week at a time,” Kiffin said. “We go out of L.A. for the last time this year. We have to get back to work.”last_img read more

NBA trade rumors: At least 3 teams interested in Pacers’ Aaron Holiday

first_img NBA free agency rumors: At least 5 teams expected to pursue Tobias Harris The Pacers finished 2018-19 with a 48-34 record and were swept by the Celtics in the first round of the playoffs.Guards Darren Collison and Cory Joseph are both set to be free agents this summer while the team has reportedly made Ricky Rubio a “top target.” Indiana, however, says it isn’t shopping Holiday and stopped taking calls about him following the trade deadline, the report says.The Pacers selected Holiday out of UCLA with the 23rd pick in the 2018 draft. He averaged 5.9 points and 1.7 assists in 50 games as a rookie. Related News The Pacers could have multiple options if they decide to deal Aaron Holiday.The Suns, Timberwolves and Bulls are all interested in dealing for the 22-year-old guard, according to a report from the Indianapolis Star, which cites unidentified league sources.center_img “You don’t know when you’re going to get called or what’s going to happen,” Holiday told The Athletic last month. “You just get thrown out there. So probably staying ready. I think I did a good job with that. It was tough at times because you don’t know what’s happening out there.”Holiday was in-and-out of Indiana’s rotation last season. He shot 40.1% from the field and 33.9% from 3-point range in about 12.9 minutes per appearance.“I feel he should be a rotational player next season and a guy that can play the one and the two,” Indiana coach Nate McMillan said in May. “I’m very comfortable with him. He’s a young kid that has a great deal of confidence in himself and I think he could help us.” NBA free agency rumors: Pacers have made Ricky Rubio a ‘top target’last_img read more

Cambrian Explosion Louder Still

first_imgDarwin started a tradition of worrying about the Cambrian Explosion.  Over time the problem has only worsened; now we know that all the animal phyla appeared suddenly in the oldest strata containing metazoan (multi-celled) animals.  In recent decades, evolutionists had hoped that the strange Ediacaran fossils would provide the needed missing links.  In addition, some thought they had found embryos of early metazoans in the exceptionally-preserved Precambrian beds of China.  Those hopes have now been dashed, leading to moans and groans from Darwinians.New techniques have allowed a closer look at the alleged embryos.  Using a non-invasive synchrotron X-ray microscope, an international team has reported their findings in Science.1  Result: not embryos, but cysts of protists.  N. J. Butterfield, writing in the same issue of Science,2 explained the misery of disappointment:Ever since Darwin there has been a disturbing void, both paleontological and psychological, at the base of the Phanerozoic eon. If his theory of gradualistic evolution be true, then surely the pre-Phanerozoic oceans must have swarmed with living animals—despite their conspicuous absence from the early fossil record. Thus, the 1998 report of fossilized animal embryos in the early Ediacaran Doushantuo Formation of South China was met with almost palpable relief. It was indeed the fossil record that had let us down, not the textbooks, and certainly not the exciting new insights from molecular clocks. All was not as it seemed, however, and new data from Huldtgren et al. on page 1696 of this issue,1 look set to revoke the status of these most celebrated Ediacaran fossils.The main point is that these spores are not on the way to becoming animal body plans.  “Although unquestionably eukaryotic, the fossils are not metazoan, or even properly multicellular by all appearances,” Butterfield said.  The researchers tried to put a semi-happy face on their conclusion by claiming it might still represent a transition “that evolved after the last common ancestor of animals and fungi, but before the last common ancestor of living (that is, crown-group) animals”.  Here’s what Butterfield had to say about that: “In terms of progressivist storytelling, this all seems a little too good to be true,” since other microbes have a similar growth habit.  The authors even acknowledge that “the much broader distribution of this habit undermines its utility as a phylogenetic marker,” Butterfield added.Yet Butterfield struggled to maintain his equanimity in spite of the disappointment.  “Interpretation at this level is inevitably impressionistic, but to my eye there is still a case for identifying the Doushantuo fossils as embryos, albeit algal rather than animal.”  Needless to say, an alga is not anything like an animal (think trilobite with articulated limbs and complex eyes; see 12/07/2011).In the expected manner of P.R. departments, the University of Bristol put out a press release spun in progressivist storytelling, with the tried-and-true “shedding light” metaphor: “Chinese fossils shed light on the evolutionary origin of animals from single-cell ancestors.”  PhysOrg inhaled and exhaled it unprocessed, even with the triumphalist but contradictory preface:All life evolved from a single-celled universal common ancestor, and at various times in Earth history, single-celled organisms threw their lot in with each other to become larger and multicellular, resulting, for instance, in the riotous diversity of animals. However, fossil evidence of these major evolutionary transitions is extremely rare.To get to the agony of defeat, one needs to move past the cheerleading headline:Professor Philip Donoghue said: “We were very surprised by our results – we’ve been convinced for so long that these fossils represented the embryos of the earliest animals – much of what has been written about the fossils for the last ten years is flat wrong.  Our colleagues are not going to like the result.”Professor Stefan Bengtson said: “These fossils force us to rethink our ideas of how animals learned to make large bodies out of cells.”One remarkable facet of these fossils was noted in the press release: “The organisms should not have been fossilized – they were just gooey clusters of cells – but they were buried in sediments rich in phosphate that impregnated the cell walls and turned them to stone.”  What this implies that if real metazoans or their embryos were present, they could have been preserved.1. Huldtgren et al., “Fossilized Nuclei and Germination Structures Identify Ediacaran ‘Animal Embryos’ as Encysting Protists,” Science 23 December 2011:Vol. 334 no. 6063 pp. 1696-1699, doi: 10.1126/science.1209537.2. N. J. Butterfield, “Paleontology: Terminal Developments in Ediacaran Embryology,” Science 23 December 2011: Vol. 334 no. 6063 pp. 1655-1656, doi: 10.1126/science.1216125.“Progressivist storytelling.”  Nice.  That was Butterfield’s term.  You don’t have to quote us to prove that Darwinism relies on progressivist storytelling.  They know it.  They just don’t always say it.  If you removed the hopeful hype from evolutionary papers and press releases, you would be left with data that support intelligent design.Those who have watched the documentary Darwin’s Dilemma might recall that it referred to the Doushantuo fossils as embryos.  Even if that interpretation is now shown to be incorrect, it doesn’t change the argument: strata that were able to fossilize “gooey clusters of cells” should have been able to preserve transitional animals if they were present.  The point is actually strengthened by this paper.  They weren’t even embryos; they were clumps of microbes!  So not only does this increase the phylogenetic distance between Precambrian fossils and Cambrian metazoan fossils, it shows that no transitional forms appear in the ideal conditions of the Chinese Doushantuo deposits.  Score another shutout against Darwinian evolution.Butterfield spoke of a “disturbing void” among evolutionists that was in part “psychological”.  Do you have a void in your life?  Are you feeling something big is missing from your world view?  Would you like to fill that void?  Christians teach that we all have a God-shaped vacuum in our soul that only God can fill.  That’s what Christmas is about: the Creator of life on earth has communicated with us in the person of God the Son, giving us hope, meaning and purpose.  Do some research this holiday season.  A good place to explore for answers is 43 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

SA, Netherlands in double-tax deal

first_img11 October 2005South Africa and the Netherlands have signed an avoidance of double taxation treaty in an effort to boost trade and investment.The treaty will limit the taxing jurisdiction of both states with regard to the flow of and return on investments. Taxes on Dutch companies will now only be paid in the Netherlands.Speaking at the signing ceremony on Monday, Finance Minister Trevor Manuel said businesses from both countries had indicated that the treaty would strengthen trade relations.“When foreign companies come to invest in South Africa, one of the things they need to know is that government will not confiscate their products.“They want to know that they won’t be taxed twice from their countries and here in South Africa. Dutch investors want certainty and they will now invest confidently,” Manuel said.Dutch Foreign Minister Rudolph Bot said the treaty would facilitate much-needed investment between the two countries.“This is about facilitating investment after long negotiations. We hope the results will be satisfactory,” he said.On Tuesday, Bot held talks with his South African counterpart, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, on political and economic relations, peace and security.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

California self-driving dreamin’ hits industry’s sour reality

first_imgIT Trends of the Future That Are Worth Paying A… California’s recently proposed rules for autonomous vehicle testing are getting a thumbs down from developers of robotic cars.Yahoo! announced the state released its proposal for regulations that govern the testing of autonomous vehicles.But industry leaders, including representatives from Google’s Self-Driving Car Project, are raising fears that these regulations will significantly bog down development of self-driving cars in California.The proposed rules have raised the hackles of the Self-Driving Coalition for Safer Streets, whose members include Ford, Uber, Google, Lyft and Volvo.Coalition leader David Strickland said California’s regulations “could greatly delay the benefits that self-driving vehicles can bring to safety and mobility for individuals.”The proposed rules are based on National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) guidelines issued in September.However, where the NHTSA opted for voluntary adherence to these guidelines, California has proposed mandatory compliance, which has spooked industry.Corporate players were also upset by California’s proposed stipulation that autonomous vehicle testers must obtain approval from every town and city they seek to trial cars in.As well, California has proposed that before even applying for a permit to operate autonomous vehicles in the state, makers of self-driving cars must gather test data for a year.This last caveat went over like a lead balloon, sparking objections from such industry heavyweights as Ford, Honda, Google, General Motors and Volkswagen.California market size means outsized influenceMany industry watchers see California as having an out-sized influence on self-driving car development in America, often setting the pace for other U.S. states. This is largely because California is a major tech hub for the development of autonomous vehicles, with 18 companies currently testing self-driving technology in the state.In a recent article, Santa Fe Institute professor Luís Bettencourt said locations that are open to autonomous vehicles will see a dramatic transformation.“If this transformation is to take place, driverless vehicle manufacturers will need to find welcoming locations to test their products,” he says.Bettencourt predicts that driverless automobiles will transform congested cities by dramatically reducing cars on the road. As well, robot cars acting as taxis will free up large tracts of land currently used for parking and gas stations.
