Tearful Federer wins Australian Open for 20th Slam title

It could have been the best two weeks of my life, but Roger played a great fifth set,” Cilic said.“I want to thank my team, you’re unbelievable. We worked hard for this year, hopefully we will lift these trophies in the future.”The roof was closed over Rod Laver Arena as the tournament’s heat policy was implemented amid evening temperatures of 38 Celsius (100 Fahrenheit). Cilic’s serve came under immediate pressure with a whipping backhand return winner for break point which the Croatian followed with a smash into the net for a break in the opening game.The Croat was finding it difficult to settle and changed racquets in his second service game, but it had no obvious benefit as he dropped serve again after three break points to trail 0-3.He finally held serve to get on the board but the Swiss star was too good, serving out the set in just 24 minutes after a shaky Cilic opening.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2 Federer, playing in his 30th Grand Slam final, joined Novak Djokovic and Australian great Roy Emerson as joint top for the most Australian Open men’s titles.“I’m so happy it’s unbelievable.

Amazing Preservation Fails to Shock Evolutionists

first_imgThe first question ought to be, how can such things survive hundreds of thousands or millions of years? Frozen Ecosystem tiny Arctic plants and mosses were last alive when the ice enveloped the land. As the ice melts, Pendleton said, it exposes this ancient, delicate vegetation. Wind and water destroy the long-lost plants within months, but if researchers can get to them first, they can use radiocarbon dating to determine the age of the vegetation. has been under the ice for 120,000 years. Aren’t the researchers concerned that radiocarbon should all be gone by then? With a trick of storytelling, they stre-t-t-t-ch the timeline by 80,000 years: Spider in shale still glows (Tae-Yoon S Park / Paul Seldon) That’s not all. The Fox News story says that “the rocks where the spiders were found also contained the remnants of tiny fish and crustaceans.” Spiders do not typically live with fish and crustaceans, do they? Were the evolutionists ashamed to have said these rocks were 100 million years old? No; they were glad! Dead men do bleed. Glowing retinas are found in many organisms. What causes the phenomenon? Cells in the retina contain reflective layers called tapetum lucidum, Science Direct explains. In other words, the spider eyes still glow because remnants of cellular proteins are still working. And this was found not in amber, but in shale, a rock where the soft tissues of a spider should “decay entirely soon after death.” Evolutionists used to state adamantly that proteins, cells and DNA could not last for a million years, let alone ten thousand. Any biological material would become permineralized and turn to stone in short order. But when soft tissues started turning up fossils from the age of dinosaurs and earlier, they began saying, like the dead man, “Well, I’ll be. Soft tissue can last for tens and hundreds of millions of years.” Watch them do it right here. Keep poking the evolutionists and showing the blood. Maybe they will finally get the point that the evidence shows they are not physically dead, but just spiritually so. “These spiders were doing things differently. … It’s nice to have exceptionally well-preserved features of internal anatomy like eye structure. It’s really not often you get something like that preserved in a fossil,” Selden said in his statement.center_img Ancient, fossilized spiders still have weird and glowing eyes (Fox News). A spider found in shale is claimed to be 100 million years old, and yet the back of its eyeballs still reflect light. Live Science explains: (Visited 784 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 In short, what they measured gives a 40,000 year radiocarbon age (not necessarily the true age, because of assumptions in the method), but the ice cap was three times older than that, they claim. And yet many of the “delicate plants” were found in “growth position,” they say. To believe they are that old, they have to believe that the ice never moved or melted before now, even though they admit that the ice has grown and shrank over different time periods. When the first dinosaur blood vessels, proteins and skin cells were discovered, many creationists thought the fix was in for the moyboys. It turned out, though, that evolutionists are like the man who thought he was dead. His doctor asked if dead men bleed. He said, “No, dead men don’t bleed.” The doctor proceeded to poke him and red blood started coming out. The man responded, “Well, I’ll be. I guess dead men do bleed.” Retreating Ice Exposes Arctic Landscape Unseen for 120,000 Years (Live Science). As Arctic ice retreats, a long-preserved landscape is becoming visible once again. Evolutionists claim the ecosystem, including Glowing Spider Eyes Spider fossils are rare, the researchers wrote in a paper published online Jan. 28 in the Journal of Systematic Paleontology. Their bodies are so soft that they typically decay entirely soon after death, leaving no trace unless they happen to end up trapped in amber. But 11 spiders from the Cretaceous period have turned up preserved in shale on the Korean Peninsula. And two of the fossils included the still-shiny traces of sparkling eyes. They found that all of their samples were at least as old as the oldest age that radiocarbon dating can detect: 40,000 years. That’s a direct indication that the plants had been under ice for at least that long, the researchers reported Jan. 25 in the journal Nature Communications.last_img read more

Amazon Simple Storage Service – Not So Simple Anymore

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#Analysis#cloud 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts tim hastingscenter_img Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Today Amazon Web Services announced the availability of a new feature of their Simple Storage Service (S3).Object Versioning now joins the ever growing list of features supported by S3. This proves once again that Amazon Web Services are listening to their customers and putting plenty of distance between them and their competition.They Grow Up So FastIn March 2006 Amazon publicly launched S3, the first of their web services. In doing so, they also unveiled their new Web Services division of their business.The service will soon celebrate its 4th birthday; to date, Amazon S3 holds over 102 billion objects and at peak times, handles over 100,000 requests/second. That is approximately 17 objects for each person on the planet! By anyone’s standard, the service is successful.Amazon S3 provides storage buckets that allow users to PUT files in and then GET them back later. Simple right?Taking things beyond the simple GET and PUT might have a lot to do with S3’s success. Amazon has added many features making S3 suitable for many different use cases.Pick and Mix FeaturesThe different S3 features can be switched on and off for individual buckets allowing users to pick different features depending on what they want to do.For example:Backups – buckets can be private and because they are securely hosted by Amazon far away in the cloud, they are an ideal “other place” to store a copy of important files.File Sharing – access controls can be used to white-list other users to have access to your buckets. Content Distribution – buckets can be made publically available via HTTP. This makes it perfect for websites to offload the serving of static content such as images. The CloudFront feature takes this one step further and makes your content available to users via their nearest Amazon Internet presence; so a user in Japan or Europe would not have to download your content from servers in the USA.Versioning (today’s announced feature) provides primitive version control of objects. When an existing file is uploaded to S3 it will create a new revision instead of overwriting the original. If you have ever accidentally deleted your backups you will appreciate the benefits of this feature! This simplifies the use of S3 for backups where you want to avoid overwriting a good backup with a corrupt one.Many cloud storage companies support versioning (like DropBox and GitHub) and S3’s support should not be seen as a threat. It’s a required part of a mature storage offering, so it makes a lot of sense that S3 should support this too. Not in a “me too” kind of way, it genuinely plugs a gap in the Amazon Web Services storage offering and will undoubtedly be very useful for its users.Is Time to Drop the “Simple”?Unlike the beta label that some web services wear with pride, the “Simple” in S3 is telling of its humble beginnings. The simple days of just GET/PUT are definitely gone. Given the fun packed feature list, it must be time to drop the ‘simple.’ Or should S3 be re-branded altogether?Let’s crowdsource some suggestions:Amazon Fully-Featured Storage Service (F2S2)Amazon Storage Service Now All Grown Up (S2NAGU)Can you think of any better ones?

Olive Ridleys arrive in Odisha for mating season

first_imgOlive Ridley turtles have begun to arrive at Odisha’s Rushikulya rookery coast in Ganjam for their annual mass mating season that precedes the mass nesting that takes place here. Rushikulya rookery is a major nesting site for the Olive Ridleys along the Indian coast.Despite the congregation of large numbers appearance of large congregations for the mass mating season, the turtles Olive Ridleys had not appeared preferred for the mass nesting here at this coast in 2019.However, in 2018, there was double mass nesting was reported on this coast in February and April, with the total nesting figures reaching over 4,73,000.A few mating Olive Ridley pairs were spotted at sea by a patrolling boat of Forest officials, at a distance of around six kilometres from Purunabandha near the Ruhsikulya river mouth, on Tuesday afternoon. “Our patrolling team located three to four mating pairs at a single spot, while some singular mating pairs were located near by,” said Khallikote Forest Range Officer, Dilip Kumar Martha.According to the Forest officials, hundreds of Olive Ridleys have started to congregate for mating in deep sea, beyond the spot where the mating pairs were found. Usually, the mass mating of Olive Ridleys picks up in December and continues till the month of January. After this period, mating male turtles return while the females remain for the mass nesting season.Meanwhile, the Forest Department has started the groundwork to keep the beach prepared to welcome the marine guests for mass nesting in February, next year. A 10-member team from the Forest Department is patrolling the sea near Rushikulya rookery to ensure the safety of the arriving Olive Ridleys and to also check the entry of fishing trawlers in the area.The Forest Department has set up six on-shore camps in the five kilometre stretch of the mass nesting beach, from Purunabandha to Prayagi near the Rushikulya river mouth. Two persons have been deployed at these camps to regularly document the condition of the beach, protect the surrounding area, inform of any debris deposited by the sea, restrict the entry of predators like stray dogs and search for possibility of turtle carcasses that float to the coast.With the help of the locals and various social organisations, this stretch of the mass nesting coast is being cleaned every alternate day, Mr. Martha said.last_img read more

Wind dry conditions fuel fastmoving wildfire near Kelowna BC

first_imgKELOWNA, B.C. – Dozens of people living in southern British Columbia have been forced to leave their homes as winds fan a wildfire nearby.The Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen issued an evacuation order Sunday afternoon for 55 properties west of Summerland as crews fight a fire burning about 30 kilometres southwest of Kelowna.Residents in more than 300 properties in the nearby Central Okanagan Regional District have been warned that they, too, may have to leave on a moment’s notice.The regional district said there has been “substantial growth” in the fire since it sparked on Saturday.Strong winds have fanned the flames burning in steep terrain and the wildfire is estimated to be about 10 square kilometres, the BC Wildfire Service said in an update on Sunday.“The main factors influencing this fire behaviour are terrain, wind speed/direction … and largely this fire activity and rate of spread is due to how dry the fuels are within this area of the Okanagan,” the service said on its website.The update noted that the area hasn’t had significant rainfall in more than two months.Twenty-three firefighters, three helicopters and four pieces of heavy equipment were working to contain the fire on Sunday.Crews are also fighting a series of wildfires in southeastern B.C. that have forced hundreds of people from their homes and closed campgrounds over the long weekend.The Regional District of East Kootenay has issued evacuation orders for more than 400 properties outside of Cranbrook, as two separate fires continue to burn out of control.Loree Duczek with the regional district said in a statement that aggressive fire behaviour on Saturday prompted officials to order more people out of their homes.“We are seeing ash and debris being cast a long distance on the head of the fire,” Duczek said. “Our first priority is public safety. These decisions are not made lightly.”Heat and wind have created “strong burning conditions,” and there’s very little precipitation on the horizon, the regional district said.last_img read more
