Peter Crouch The retired Premier League footballer — married to Abbey Clancy — made the admission on his Radio 5 Live podcast. A listener, called Ally, asked if footballers got erections in games like WWE star John Cena, who admitted to an “accidental boner” while fighting The Undertaker. Crouchy, 38, said: “No, I’ve not [had a boner during a match]. When you are so concentrated on a match I don’t think it does!” But he added: “When you are getting your leg checked by the physio — I mean, that’s a different ball game.Advertisement Loading… Promoted ContentContemplate Life At These 10 Stargazing Locations7 Truly Incredible Facts About Black HolesWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?The Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

Ghana captain calm under pressure

first_imgGhana captain Mahatma Otoo insists his team can deal with the pressure of successfully defending their African youth title.The Hearts of Oak striker will be looking to become the fourth Ghana captain at the U 20 level to lift the trophy.He reckons the pressure on the side to perform in Johannesburg will be even more intense after the highs the 2009 team reached when they became African champions and world champions in Egypt later.“It’s pressure but this team is very focused. The last group did really well but our side did well too in qualifying, scored goals regardless of where we played and that for me is a sign of how well we can cope under pressure,” Otoo told KickOffGhana.com.“We have the team and capable of doing what the last team did. If all goes well we could even do better,” he added.Ghana open their campaign against Nigeria on Monday and Otoo reckons it will be a difficult game. “Games between Ghana and Nigeria have always been tough. You can’t predict. The team is very ready but we are prepared for that so hopefully Nigeria will fall.”And while qualification for the 2011 is a major priority, winning the trophy is important for him.“You know Ghanaians will not settle for us not to win the trophy. Given what happened last two years, winning will be everything. Qualification for the world cup is a massive incentive but we have defend Ghana’s pride and take the trophy back to Accra.”Source: Kickoff.comlast_img read more

Reading boss disputes red card in defeat at Fulham

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesReading boss Jaap Stam insisted Danny Williams should not have been sent off in their 5-0 defeat at Fulham but admitted his side were second best. Williams saw red following a brief and innocuous looking tussle with a prone Stefan Johansen on the byline, with referee Oliver Langford adjudging the Royals midfielder had kicked out.Stam said: “I think Danny had tried to kick it out and he tumbled, the player from Fulham [Johansen] fell on top of him.“I don’t think Danny deliberately kicked him in the chest. He could have touched him but I don’t think it’s a red card.”However, Stam said his side – who had won their previous five matches – were not good enough collectively or individually.“We spoke about Fulham and the system that they play, but if you’re not switched on yourself, then you make it a bit easier for the opposition,” he said.“They played well, they’ve got a lot of quality in the squad.“Everybody who played today can do a better job. Most of the players were too soft and not good enough on the ball.” See also:Brilliant Fulham crush 10-man ReadingMartin’s future out of my hands – Jokanovic  Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Urologists: Men, Forget the Blue Pill!

The Miller Experiment Is Dead; Long Live the Miller Experiment

first_img(Visited 76 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 The image of Stanley Miller pondering his spark-discharge apparatus is too valuable an icon to toss on the trash heap of history.Dr. Stanley Miller (1930-2007), like Frankenstein, stands proudly, arms akimbo, behind his lightning-bolt flask in a piece on Astrobiology Magazine.  Yes, he got some glycine and other mixed-handed amino acids in his artificial atmosphere, but in the many years since 1953, many in the origin-of-life field have found serious problems with his experimental setup.  When they replicated the experiment with more realistic prebiotic atmospheric gases, including free oxygen, they got nothing.  The field has moved on since then, looking for amino acids in meteors or comets, are imagining metabolic processes emerging in deep-sea vents.  But something about that photo, with the lightning bolt in the flask, sent the imagination of atheists soaring:In 1953, American chemist Stanley Miller had famously electrified a mixture of simple gas and water to simulate lightning and the atmosphere of early Earth. The revolutionary experiment—which yielded a brownish soup of amino acids—offered a simple potential scenario for the origin of life’s building blocks. Miller’s work gave birth to modern research on pre-biotic chemistry and the origins of life.Miller, therefore, electrified more than gases: he electrified the imagination.  It was not a realistic scenario; just a “potential scenario” that sent the world on a quest that has run into obstacles at every turn (e.g., compare 2/15/07 and 1/26/08).Now, to keep the dream alive, Antonino Marco Saitta and colleagues at the Sorbonne in Paris have re-examined Miller’s experiment at the quantum level. This, presumably, will breathe new life into the old icon.  In computer simulations, they got the glycine all right, and discovered something new: that formamide, not formaldehyde, appears to be the precursor molecule (Jeffrey Bada, Miller’s student, is skeptical about this, the article notes).  They also believe that the electric field might be 10 to 20 times stronger on mineral surfaces.  “Nobody has really looked at electric fields on mineral surfaces,” Saitta said. “My feeling is that there’s probably something to explore there.”None of this should matter, though, if the experiment starts with the wrong gases.  Did they make the same error Miller did?  A look at their paper in PNAS shows, that, indeed, they did: “A preliminary test to all simulations reported in the main text was carried out on a system, named M00, based on the original Miller mixture and relative proportions of ammonia, methane, and hydrogen.”  Apparently all 50 runs used reducing conditions with no free oxygen, which would have destroyed the desired “building blocks” (glycine, it should be noted, is the simplest amino acid, with no chirality).  They failed to mention, also, that the “brownish soup” included chemicals that would destroy the amino acids.Any results of the new work, therefore, are only of academic interest, and—like the original Miller experiment—bear no relevance on speculations about the plausibility of life arising under “natural” conditions.  They only illustrate intelligently-designed artificial experiments about organic synthesis under controlled conditions.Sixty-one years now the evolutionists (and NASA, with tax funding), have promoted the Building Blocks of Lie with their Miller icon.  We’ve been crying out like a voice in the wilderness about this phony icon for over a decade (5/02/03).  What will it take to get the liars to fess up?  They know full well that this experiment has nothing to do with life, but they continue milking it of all the propaganda value they can get to promote atheistic materialism.  Debunking the “useful lie” requires some knowledge of organic chemistry many people do not have, but the propagandists know that a picture is worth a thousand words.  That image of lightning-in-a-flask sent young Lee Strobel, as a high school student, down his decades-long detour into atheism (see film The Case for a Creator).  How many others went down that same path to spiritual destruction?The origin of life is arguably the most (or one of the most) astronomical hurdles for evolutionary materialists to leap over by faith, but you wouldn’t know it from NASA’s power of suggestion.  Get educated about this key issue!  Read our online book.  Read Shapiro and Orgel falsifying each other.  Read Meyer’s Signature in the Cell.  Whatever you do, help stop this scientifically-vacuous, emotionally-poisoned propaganda from doing any more damage to impressionable minds.last_img read more

I am 27, and I Am a Maternal Health Advocate

first_imgPosted on August 31, 2010June 21, 2017By: Janna Oberdorf, Communications Manager, Women DeliverClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)These are two things I’m very proud of. I’m proud to be young (or at least young-ish) and passionate about women and mothers. I’m proud that when I see images of women giving birth in low-quality health facilities, I want to yell at the world. I’m proud that the first time I learned what fistula is, I wanted to smash my computer screen and say, “Why didn’t I even know about this before?” This is a fight that I’m ready and willing to take – the fight for mothers around the world.But why are there so few young people involved in maternal health, at the research level, at the advocacy level, and at the policy level?Today, at the Global Maternal Health Conference I got to watch five Young Champions of Maternal Health speak with the same passion that I feel.I watched:·      Hellen Kotlolo talk about her project to send SMS text messages to pregnant women and new mothers that give them both health advice, but also loving, empowering messages that increase their self-esteem;·      Zubaida Bai talk (via a video recording) about her project to distribute clean birth kits to communities;·      Egwaoje Ifeyinwa Madu talk about using SisterFriends, a trusted network of women in communities, to share information on maternal health and act as a safe and compassionate resource;·      Carolina Araujo Damasio Santos talk about her project The Art of Being Born which uses music, poetry, and other art forms to humanize the process of pregnancy and birth in Brazil;·      and Seth Cochran talk about Operation OF, a project to reintegrate fistula survivors into communities who have shunned them for their injuries.I couldn’t have been more inspired. But I had to ask the question: How do we get more young people on board? It seems that when it comes to maternal health, it’s hard to reach young people in a way that make them understand this is an issue that affects them. Many young people care about sexual and reproductive health – they want safe sex, contraception, safe abortions. But when you mention maternal health, they think about their mothers.Sitting in front of five Young Champions who certainly inspired this conference of almost 700 people, I hope that one day maternal health will resonate with young people on a bigger, broader level. I hope that one day when we mention maternal health, young people will think of themselves and not just their mothers. And I hope that organizations like the Maternal Health Task Force, Ashoka, and more continue to respect young people’s opinions and innovative ideas, and properly support them with information, guidance, mentoring and funding.Learn more about the Young Champions of Maternal Health program, a partnership between the Maternal Health Task Force and Ashoka.Janna Oberdorf is the Communications Manager at Women Deliver.Stay up to date with the conference happenings!
