Yaya Toure was “furious” after suffering alleged racial abuse during Manchester City’s Champions League win at CSKA Moscow and called for strong action.The City midfielder suggested lengthy stadium bans should be imposed after he was the target of apparent monkey chanting from “stupid” supporters in City’s 2-1 win at the Arena Khimki.It is not the first time he has experienced such vitriol as he and – primarily – Mario Balotelli were targeted during a Europa League game at Porto in February 2012.Porto were fined £16,700 by European governing body UEFA after that incidence – less than the £24,740 City had to pay for delaying the second-half kick-off by one minute – and Toure believes tougher sanctions are necessary.The Ivory Coast international, who complained to the referee about the issue during the match, said: “I’m not just disappointed, I’m furious.”I’m very, very disappointed about what those fans have done and I think UEFA has to take action because players with the same colour of skin will always be in the same position. “For me, as captain, I was wearing an armband which said ‘no to racism’ and I was totally disappointed.”Maybe they could ban the stadium, I don’t know, for a couple of years or a couple of months.”It’s stupid these people. I don’t know, it just happens in football. It’s unbelievable.”They’re stupid, they’re just stupid. UEFA has to take action to right it otherwise I think they will just continue.”City have confirmed they will make an official complaint to UEFA over the matter. A club representative spoke to the match delegate from European football’s governing body after the game and that action will be followed up with a written submission.The issue also raises concerns about racism ahead of the 2018 World Cup, which will be hosted in Russia.FIFA vice-president Jim Boyce called on Russian authorities to clamp down on racism.Boyce told BBC Radio Five Live: “The Russian federation has got to assure – along with the Russian government – that these incidents are put to bed because it’s happening too often.”Too much abuse has been happening in many, many parts of eastern Europe. “Eastern Europe has problems, but we have problems in other parts of the world as well.”It’s got to be eradicated and the only way is to take serious action against the people who do it – don’t allow them to watch football matches.”I’ve always said fining clubs is not a solution to this problem.”A lot of the clubs take every step they can – they can’t stop some of these idiots.”Piara Powar, executive director of the FARE Network (Football Against Racism in Europe), believes UEFA has been moving in the right direction on such matters. He said: “UEFA have changed their rules and already this season sanctions are harder than ever before.”For a first offence you face a partial stadium closure; for a second offence your stadium will be closed for a match.”It’s taken a long time to get here, but I think we are seeing some movement on the sanction side.”In terms of education, I don’t know how long that’s going to take, to educate fans like we’ve seen at CSKA.”
Back in the late 1970s, when Kim Zahnow was a Weber State cheerleader, a basketball player fancied her, and eventually the two were married. Twenty-six years later, that same player called Weber State athletic director Jerry Graybeal and recommended Randy Rahe for the Wildcats’ vacant men’s basketball coaching position. That player, now in his fourth season as UCLA’s coach, is Ben Howland, who remains very much in touch with his Weber State roots. So when the NCAA Tournament selection committee matched No. 2 seed UCLA and No. 15 Weber State in first round of the West regional Thursday in Sacramento (tipoff is tentatively scheduled for 4:25 p.m.), Howland admitted seeing the irony of the matchup, even if he didn’t see any humor in it. More pressing than the connect-the-dots lineage of Howland’s basketball career is the mindset of his Bruins, whose confidence remains shaken after dropping their past two games to non-NCAA Tournament participants Washington and Cal. “I would say 90 percent (is the confidence level),” Bruins sophomore Alfred Aboya said. “We need just a couple more days to boost it to 100 percent.” Aboya said UCLA’s confidence was “really low” after the Pac-10 tournament loss, and Howland began to rebuild it during Saturday’s practice. Arron Afflalo, UCLA’s All-American guard, said Howland altered his practice setup of starters against reserves. Afflalo and point guard Darren Collison were on one side, and power forward Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and wing Josh Shipp on the other. “We had a very hard practice, and it feels like we’re a winning team again,” Afflalo said. “It was real competitive, very intense. Coach mixed up the teams and it made it very competitive.” Getting a win in the tournament will build confidence, but the Bruins face a Weber State team that has improved dramatically from the beginning of the season and a program known for pulling first-round upsets. The Wildcats (20-11), who won the Big Sky Tournament title with 10 new players, are well-versed in NCAA upset lore. As a 14th seed, they defeated North Carolina in 1999, and Michigan State in 1995. “Pretty much anybody that plays against UCLA has to look at them as mighty UCLA,” said Pepperdine transfer David Patten, who is scoring a team-high 14.4 points per game for the Wildcats. “They are, in my opinion, the best college (program) ever. They have just a great history, and this year is no different with the way they’ve been playing. “They had a great Pac-10 season, a little disappointing at the end of the year, but that makes them even more of an edgier team coming into the NCAA Tournament.” email@example.com (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “I’m happy for (Rahe), and in some way, doing the right thing may end up biting me from behind here,” said Howland, who graduated from the Ogden, Utah, school in 1979. “I hope not. I’ve known Randy for probably 15 years. He’s very good.” The Bruins (26-5) lost the top seed in the West with its first-round loss to California in the Pacific-10 Conference Tournament. Instead, Kansas is the West’s top seed. But UCLA faces several potentially juicy meetings along the road to Atlanta, site of the Final Four. UCLA opens against Howland’s alma mater, and if it wins would play the winner of No. 7 seed Indiana vs. No. 10 seed Gonzaga. Not only did Howland begin his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Gonzaga, but the Bruins rallied from 17points down to beat the Bulldogs in the regional semifinals last March. And there is also a possible Sweet 16 meeting in San Jose with Howland’s other favorite team, No. 3 seed Pittsburgh, where he coached before taking over at UCLA. “I’m not surprised by it. I don’t chuckle, but I’m not surprised by it,” Howland said. “CBS is paying a lot of money to telecast the NCAA Tournament, about $700 to $800 million a year over the lifetime of the deal … so, of course, if good TV is available, it’s going to be more commanding to viewership.”

The news media are all echoing a story out of Nature April 291 that Neanderthals matured by age 15, as indicated by their teeth. A News and Views article in the same issue by Jay Kelley2 begins, It is nearly 150 years since the existence of Neanderthals was first recognized, but debate about their relationship to modern humans remains as contentious as ever.” The find is not necessarily indicative of a major difference between Neanderthals and modern humans, but “ should prove to be a fruitful line of research.” Sample news media interpretations can be found at BBC News and paleoanthropology’s bulldog, National Geographic.1Rossi and de Castro, “Surprisingly rapid growth in Neanderthals, ” Nature 428, 936 – 939 (29 April 2004); doi:10.1038/nature02428.2Jay Kelley, “Paleoanthropology: Neanderthal teeth lined up,” Nature 428, 904 – 905 (29 April 2004); doi:10.1038/428904b.You can’t infer the social evolution of humans from teeth. Modern humans reach puberty before 15, so why shouldn’t there be variation in tooth maturation rates between varieties of humans? This study is way too much interpretation on way too little data. A “fruitful line of research” is code for “a new storytelling plot.” Evolutionists grasp at any hint that Neanderthals were a different species than us. It’s a kind of historical racism. Harrub and Thompson point out in a thick new book, The Truth About Human Origins (Apologetics Press 2004), p. 133, that at four fossil sites, Neanderthals and modern humans are found buried together. The only way to build a Darwinian story out of that is to claim that modern humans buried their pet missing links with them.(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0

A piece of Boeing 777 wreckage that washed up on an Indian Ocean island arrived for analysis in France early Saturday, after Malaysian authorities said the part was almost certainly recovered from missing flight MH370.Paris’ Orly airport website confirmed the Air France flight transporting the piece of wreckage landed at 6.17 am local time (0417 GMT) from the French island of La Reunion. A police escort will accompany the two-metre (6.5 foot) part on its journey by road to a defence ministry laboratory near the southwestern city of Toulouse. Also Read – Separatists vacate key offices in Yemen’s Aden, says MinisterExperts will begin their analysis on Wednesday, along with an examination of parts of a suitcase discovered nearby.If confirmed, the discovery would mark the first breakthrough in a case that has baffled aviation experts for 16 months. “I believe that we are moving closer to solving the mystery of MH370. This could be the convincing evidence that MH370 went down in the Indian Ocean,” Malaysia’s deputy transport minister Abdul Aziz Kaprawi told AFP.
