Pilkington proves his commitment

first_imgAnthony Pilkington has re-affirmed his commitment to Ireland after finally joining up with the squad at the sixth time of asking. The 25-year-old Norwich midfielder had previously been called up five times by manager Giovanni Trapattoni, but on each occasion, had been forced to withdraw through injury. Trapattoni has at times during his reign hit out at players who have cried off after being selected, and doubts had been expressed in some quarters over Pilkington. However, having trained for the first time with his international colleagues ahead of Friday’s World Cup qualifier against Sweden, the former Huddersfield man insisted no-one was more frustrated than him at the catalogue of misfortune which kept him back in England. He said: “It was five times in the end that I couldn’t come over, so it was frustrating, very frustrating. “The first time, I was ready to come over that night, so it was obviously very frustrating. But that’s behind me now and hopefully I can crack on and do well. “Obviously I can see why people started talking, but I would have been no good to anybody coming here and playing with a dodgy knee or playing with a torn hamstring. “I wouldn’t be helping anybody, I wouldn’t be helping myself or the country, so people need to realise that I had the injuries. “I was always committed. The first time I had to pull out, my bags were packed ready to come over. “We had a morning game and we were due to fly out, me and Wes [Hoolahan], after the game and I got injured during the game. “Like I say, I would be no good to anybody coming over here with a bad hamstring and saying I was fit if I wasn’t. Press Association “But I am here now and I am excited for the game. I’ll hopefully get in a good week’s training and hopefully we can pick up the points we need on Friday.” Trapattoni was clearly satisfied with the explanations offered by Pilkington for his non-attendance and has kept him in his sights, and that is something for which the player is immensely grateful. He said: “The medical teams both spoke to each other constantly and the boss was always talking to me by text, so there was always communication between both parties at all times. “Luckily, he has kept calling me up and it’s the right time to come over now. My knee feels all right at the moment, so hopefully I’ll get a good week’s training and I’m looking forward to the game.” Ireland face a fight to lever themselves into second place in Group C with they, Sweden and next Tuesday’s opponents Austria locked together on 11 points. But Pilkington and his team-mates know only too well the prize which awaits them, and that is motivation enough. He said: “Everyone knows the World Cup is the biggest tournament in the sport, probably in any sport. It’s massive, it’s huge and it’s huge for the country to get there. “It will be a massive occasion if we do get there, so hopefully we can put in a good performance against Sweden on Friday, pick up the points and then start the ball rolling towards hopefully getting there.” last_img read more

Screen Fatigue? Here Are Some Top Board Games To Pass The…

first_imgPictionary Ludo Snakes and Ladders Monopoly Scrabble Ludo (known as “Ludi” in Jamaica) is one of the most popular board games played by Caribbean nationals and Caribbean-Americans. The basic goal of the game is to guide your tokens from “home” (by rolling a dice) clockwise around the board along the game track to the finish center square. The first person to get all their tokens to the square wins the game. This classic game sees two to six players make their way around a board as they buy, sell and trade properties to win. With only one winner of Monopoly, players collect rent from their opponents, with the goal being to drive them into bankruptcy. Money can also be gained or lost through community chest cards and tax squares. Players can also end up in jail, which they cannot move from until they have met one of several conditions. Movies, TV shows and video games are a great and entertaining way to pass the time, but it is ideal to take a break from sitting in front of a TV or computer. Board games are a great way to keep you and your family entertained while in quarantine. Many board games are also educational and are a great way to keep your mind sharp and test your skills. Chess Chess is one of the oldest known board games still played to this day. The objective of the game is to move around the chess pieces on the board with the hope of capturing the other player’s pieces and scoring checkmate. Chess is considered a game for thinkers and strategists.center_img Players attempt to gain points by making high scoring/unusual words from the letters on the tiles. The tiles show the points they are worth. Each player picks seven unseen tiles from a bag and hides their letters from opponents. When it’s your turn, you have to try and form a word. Inspired by the family-friendly 90s movie, the aim of the game involves making your way through a jungle. Players roll the dice with the aim of being the first to get to the center of the board and win the game. However, on the board are “jungle” animals for players to get past. They use the deck of danger cards to reveal and decode the secret message in order to move on. This board game is for two players, played on a draughtboard. Each player starts with twelve disc-shaped pieces in three rows along one side of the board and moves them diagonally with the aim of capturing all the opponent’s pieces. Draughts is similar to another popular board game, Checkers. Pictionary is a classic game of drawing and guessing pictures. The game includes a game board, four playing pieces and category cards, a one-minute sand timer and a die. Each board square is coloured and corresponds to a category of cards with various words. Players have to attempt to draw (usually scribble) an image that illustrates the word on the card. While the United States, parts of the Caribbean and much of the rest of the world have been forced to stay at home due to the coronavirus, pandemic, many people are looking for ways to enjoy their free time. Jumanji Draughts This is one of the less competitive, classic board games. Each player throws the dice, working their way around the board looking for ladders and trying to avoid sliding down the slippery snakes.last_img read more

Darwinist Writes Bible Commentary

first_img(Visited 14 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 A rationalist, Darwinist, rabid anti-creationist has surprising things to say about the Bible.Steve Jones, former head geneticist at University College London, is a Darwinist’s Darwinist.  Not only does he relegate everything in life to gradual natural selection (including the Cambrian Explosion, 12/19/08), he celebrated London’s Darwin Centre (9/24/02), and has been a model of making disparaging remarks about creationists, considering them annoying, depressing, and irrational (11/27/06).  One of his best-known podcasts was entitled, “Why Creationism Is Wrong and Evolution Is Right” (4/21/06).  Now he has a new book out, The Serpent’s Promise: The Bible Retold As Science.  It was reviewed by Tim Radford for Nature.One might expect Jones to tear the holy book to shreds.  On the contrary, Radford found it “a masterly take on science invoked by the Bible.”  Jones apparently finds a lot to like in the stories of Adam and Eve, Noah, Job, Joseph, Moses and Solomon.  He even called it the Good Book, with capitals.  He called Genesis “the world’s first biology textbook.”  Radford has a hunch why Jones was accommodating to those he considers irrational:The Serpent’s Promise is a believer’s book. It expresses belief in the power of language, imagination, scholarship, high art, enduring myth, tribal tradition, unforgettable poetry, irrational vision and inspired insight. If you wanted to find all of these things between just one set of covers, you might pick up the Authorized Version of the Bible; but this is a not a book by somebody who believes in God. It is a book by the distinguished geneticist, broadcaster, lecturer, writer and Welshman Steve Jones, who has a sharp awareness of moral imperative and a warm feeling for those Joneses before him who invoked the bread of heaven and yearned to be safe on Canaan’s side. It is the ambivalence at the heart of this book which makes it so hugely enjoyable and, perhaps, so important.Could there be in his soul a wistful longing for the faith of his fathers?  If so, it’s probably shallow.  Jones looks at the Bible as a collection of tribal myths that, for all their inspired insights and poetry, have been superseded by science.  His book is “not of the science of the Bible, but of the science invoked by the Bible,” as if Biblical texts become springboards for a “rationalist sermon on a biblical theme,” showing “the power of science to illuminate myth.”Consequently, Jones chose Biblical texts based on their potential to launch him into high dives of scientific rationalism.  The “giants” of Genesis 6:4 become an opportunity to discuss the pituitary gland and acromegaly.  The genealogies evolve into discussions of the genetic inheritance of Ashkenazy Jews, the Arya and Britons from recent forebears.  “The Serpent’s Promise cannot advance divine revelation, but it offers a new context for old myths,” Radford explains.  He found Jones’s book remarkably accommodating to the religious:This book is not an overt condemnation of religious belief: skilfully, it selects stories that have informed Western culture for 2,000 years to illuminate modern research, and Jones ends with an envoi on behalf of a future enriched by “an objective and unambiguous culture whose logic, language and practices are permanent and universal. It is called science.”To Bible believers, this is condemnation with faint praise.  It may not be overt, but it is surely covert: old myths are out.  Now that we’ve had our 2,000 year entertainment, it’s time to be objective with logic and universal cultural practices based on science.  It’s not clear if Jones has been told that logical positivism died in the 1960s.Radford appears to have caught Jones standing on a slippery rug.  “He does not waste much energy on the three great mysteries resolved with such confidence in Genesis…” he said; “science may never be able to explain why the Universe happened at all, precisely how life began or what exactly turned an omnivorous foraging African bipedal primate into a creature with a taste for abstract speculation.”  Radford used Jones as an example of “the problem of humans. They can intellectually endorse one thing and stubbornly love another.”Jones has made a certifiable fool of himself.  Remember when he attributed the Cambrian explosion to gradual Darwinian processes? (12/19/08).  Remember when he was asked for his best evidence for evolution, and it was HIV? (5/30/06).  But those are freshman flaws in the school of irrationality.  His Ph.D. level (Post hoc Dottiness) is attributing his own rationality to an unguided material process that, somehow, “turned an omnivorous foraging African bipedal primate into a creature with a taste for abstract speculation” (see yesterday’s commentary).  From whence did Jones get his “moral imperative”?  Radford (a freelance journalist and author) at least has a grasp of the big questions “resolved with such confidence in Genesis” and unexplained by science.Jones has given up on talking to creationists (5/30/06).  One can only hope he will open the Good Book more often and find more inspiration other than the Serpent’s promise that he would be as gods, knowing good and evil.  Some deprogramming out of logical positivism might be a prerequisite.  Even so, the ambivalence in his soul was sensed by Radford.  With God all things are possible, even directing a modern Saul to safety on Canaan’s side, where the Joneses before him would yearn to see him come.last_img read more
