“...this is only an interim measure and as long as we have hopefully control over COVID in a few months or a year’s time then I think things will go back to as normal as it can be,” Kumble told Star Sports show ‘Cricket Connected’. … [Read more...] about Interim measure, it will be back to normal once COVID situation under control: Kumble on saliva ban
“I mean, I get it. I absolutely agree with the ideals. But obviously, it’s going nowhere,” he says. “And I think that’s exemplified by the incredibly vociferous and angry denial that comes from that side of people who say, ‘You son of a bitch, we thought were our spokesperson.’ And I say, if you could take a deep breath and think about it, I think you’ll find that I am your spokesperson. But I’m rational and I’m trying to accomplish things in the real world, not in the fantasyland where there is no law.” … [Read more...] about Nick Offerman on the ‘Closed-Minded NRA Fanatics’ Who Think He Really Is Ron Swanson
Neither his trial nor the one conducted at USC will be as large or as highly anticipated as ACTT, but they have the potential to dig deeper into how patients respond to the drugs by measuring blood chemicals or looking at more subtle indicators of improvement. … [Read more...] about Coronavirus discoveries can come along faster with adaptive clinical trials
This is, as it must be, Ireland’s decision. But its impact will not end there. It will be felt first in Northern Ireland, with its own punitive laws, and then globally. The influx of cash from foreign anti-abortion groups shows that the vote must be understood in the context of efforts to roll back rights, from the US to Brazil to Poland. A yes vote would hearten those resisting the pressure, a no vote embolden those trying to ban safe, legal abortions. Moreover, the amendment exports rather than halts abortions. In recent decades more than 150,000 Irish women have travelled to have abortions, mostly to England. Others use smuggled pills, risking prosecution if they subsequently need medical attention. … [Read more...] about The Guardian view on the abortion referendum: Ireland’s choice will have a global impact
Hunters, says Nasi, take about 4.5m tonnes of bushmeat a year from forests in the Congo basin and possibly 1.299m tonnes in the Amazon. “We would need to transform large areas of tropical forests or savannas into pasture to replace [this amount of] bushmeat by cattle. For comparison, Brazilian beef production is considered responsible for about 50m hectares [124m acres – twice the size of the UK] of deforestation. If bushmeat consumption in the Congo basin was to be replaced by locally produced beef, an area as large as 25 m hectares might have to be converted to pastures.” … [Read more...] about ‘Ban on bushmeat’ after Covid-19 but what if alternative is factory farming?

Maximilien Robespierre Among the historical figures after whom the French name boulevards and squares, one is inexplicably rare: the father of their republic and all modern revolutionary politics. History has given Robespierre a bad rap for his role in what it knows as the Terror. A great orator with a brilliant mind, but an ascetic man, Robespierre drove the great French Revolution, opposing Girondin revolutionary factions that disastrously declared war on the rest of Europe. The wars, and betrayal by others, required Robespierre to defend that revolution with a device proposed along with his friend Joseph-Ignace Guillotin as a humane alternative to the breaking wheel, after the pair had unsuccessfully attempted to abolish the death penalty. Robespierre was guillotined without trial after a coup d’etat on 28 July 1794. … [Read more...] about The 10 best revolutionaries
Thus, and despite Puritan support, the impetus of the translation was and remained deeply conservative, its aim to declare the English reformation complete. The Bishops' Bible was the default text, there were to be no marginal notes, and the translators were instructed to defer to "the ancient fathers", "the analogy of the faith" and the "old ecclesiastical words". Thus, as Thomas More had insisted in the 1520s, Tyndale's "elder", "congregation" and "love" were to be rendered as "priest", "church" and "charity". The Bible's divine authority was implied by an imposed uniformity of format and literary style (so poems such as the psalms and Mary's Magnificat in Luke are rendered in prose). For the 1611 reader, the Bible was overlaid with an antique patina: the increasingly outmoded "thou" as the singular of "you", the "-eth" ending to verbs as opposed to the current move to "s" ("hath" for "has", "doeth" for "does"), "thereof" for the contemporary "its". The consistent – you could … [Read more...] about The King James Bible reconsidered
