And while they are assured of a semifinal berth, tabbing a twice-to-beat edge in the playoffs still hangs in the balance for the squad.ADVERTISEMENT Coach Chito Victolero, however, downplayed the Hotshots’ dominating performance, saying things just fell into place against the Picanto.“Actually those kinds of things just happen,” said Victolero, who once served as coach for the KIA franchise. “We had a good mindset and we played together as a team. Both the offense and defense were rolling tonight.”“We needed this game very badly in order for us to have a slim chance for the top four and we knew KIA wouldn’t give this game that easily.”Kristoffer Acox led the Hotshots with 19 points and 15 rebounds.ADVERTISEMENT Mos Burger to open in Manila; teases with a pop-up Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next The Picanto, meanwhile, exited the tournament without a win, signing off with a 0-11 card, but the 47-point defeat was an added blow for KIA as it suffered its worst loss in franchise history.Later in the night, Meralco strengthened its bid for a top two finish after holding off GlobalPort, 100-93.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smogThe Bolts tied Ginebra at the top of the ladder at 8-2 while the Batang Pier, who are already out of the playoffs, ended their conference with a 3-8 slate.Star used a huge second quarter to put the game away, overpowering KIA there, 33-12, to take a 65-36 lead going into the halftime break.

first_img Robbie Brady celebrates scoring the Republic of Ireland’s winner against Italy 1 Robbie Brady says scoring Republic of Ireland’s winner against Italy at Euro 2016 felt like an ‘out of body experience’.The midfielder’s 85th-minute header earned his side a dramatic 1-0 victory in Wednesday night’s final Group E clash and booked the Irish a last-16 showdown with hosts France.The Norwich ace said: “I can’t really explain the feeling. People who have scored these type of goals, they speak about it and say it’s like an out-of-body experience and I was lucky enough to experience that tonight.“I’m stuck for words really, I don’t know what to say. My head’s still a bit all over the place, but I’m absolutely delighted with it.“I sort of lost myself a little bit in the celebrations, but I couldn’t help it. It’s what dreams are made of. It was a proud night for myself and fantastic for the team.”Brady’s big chance came just seconds after substitute Wes Hoolahan had passed up a glorious opportunity to win the game, but it was he who provided his team-mate with the perfect cross from which to write himself into Irish football’s folklore.The match-winner said: “I think the chance Wes had before, it all came so quickly. It was a massive moment and it just got caught under his feet a little bit.“But it just shows the character and the playmaker he is to go and pick the ball up two minutes later and put it exactly where I ran, so all the plaudits to Wes Hoolahan as well.“It was a fantastic ball. He put it right on my head and I would have done well to miss, I think.”Manager Martin O’Neill, who became the first man to guide the nation to the knockout stages of the European Championship, joked that Hoolahan might have had questions to answer after the game had he not made amends.O’Neill said: “You make a very good point, to keep his head, because he may well have lost it in the dressing room had he not have done.“It was a great cross. I am delighted for him because he might have rued that miss. It was a great chance for us and I must admit while I am incredibly positive, I was concerned that we might not create as good a chance again.“I know I don’t look it, but I’m absolutely thrilled. I haven’t got an ounce of energy left.”last_img read more

Barbara Boxer, who is his campaign co-chair. The Westly ad highlights his experience as co-founder of eBay, discusses his positions on several social issues and shows him talking to average Californians. “We feel (Westly’s) marriage of progressive values with fiscal responsibility is a great fit for California,” said Westly campaign spokesman Nick Velasquez. “Californians tend to be socially progressive and fiscally moderate.” The race between state Treasurer Angelides and state Controller Westly, both well-funded office holders, is expected to get expensive – and bitter. The two campaigns have hired consultants well-known for acidic sound bites, Garry South for Westly and Bob Mulholland for Angelides. Angelides has banked about $17 million for his effort, while Westly, a dot-com multimillionaire, has $24 million on hand, and is expected to reach reach into his own pockets as needed. SACRAMENTO – The Democratic primary battle heads to the airwaves this week as gubernatorial rivals Phil Angelides and Steve Westly debut their television ads in major markets. Both ads steer clear of negative attacks and don’t even mention the other candidate. Angelides’ ad touts his claim to be the best candidate to take down Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, with the slogan “He stood up to Arnold, he can stand up for you.” Westly’s proclaims him “A different kind of governor.” “The ad highlights Phil’s history of standing up to Gov. Schwarzenegger, his commitment to education and the support that he’s won from California’s two senators,” said Angelides campaign manager Cathy Calfo. “It also speaks to Phil’s character, reminding voters of his willingness to take on a once-popular governor and stand up for the next generation of Californians.” The Westly campaign has been airing its ad in small markets for several weeks, but went to Los Angeles, San Francisco and Sacramento for the first time Monday. Angelides is going on the air for the first time this week, in those same three major markets, with an over $1 million buy. Political analyst Sherry Bebitch Jeffe, of the University of Southern California, said a strong primary fight will leave the eventual Democratic victor weakened, with depleted funds, while the Schwarzenegger team will have spent the time building up the positive attributes of their candidate. She said the ads are being aired relatively early, and can be expected to turn more negative closer to the June primary.

It also left them 2-1 losers, tied up at a game apiece with the White Sox in the American League Championship Series and not liking it one bit. There was plenty of blame to be passed around afterwards, beginning with home plate umpire Doug Eddings who blew the play, the call and the explanation. The Angels were not without fault themselves, beginning with Josh Paul who failed to make the most routine of fail-safe plays for a catcher, and almost everyone who reached for a bat. There was also weakened left-hander Jarrod Washburn, who battling back from strep throat to pitch 4 2/3 gutsy innings but opened with an error that would haunt. CHICAGO — And that’s the way the ball bounces, or doesn’t. That was one for the archives, for stranger than fiction. As bizarre and controversial an ending to a postseason game as you’ll find. His first batter, Scott Podsednik, bounced back to the mound, where Washburn made a nice stab and then threw over the head of Erstad at first. “The worst pitch I threw all night,” Washburn said. A sacrifice bunt and a Paul Konerko single and Chicago led 1-0. It remained that way until Robb Quinlan hit a solo homer off left-hander Mark Buehrlein the fifth. It was still 1-1 entering the bottom of the ninth. The Angels received wonderful relief pitching to match the effort by Buehrle. The game was headed into extra innings, and then it wasn’t. Then the storm hit, and it never would calm down. Kelvim Escobar thought he had struck out A.J. Pierzynski swinging for the final out of the inning. So did just about everyone else. “I was very happy,” Escobar said. “I thought I punched him out.” Eddings clearly pointed to the swing and then punched a fist in the air, the typical umpire’s sign for an out. The pitch, however, was very low. Paul — who had entered the game in the eighth after starting catcher Jose Molina was pinch run for — gloved it and tossed the ball back to the mound. “I caught it,” Paul said. “I was on the way back to the dugout.” All four infielders started in. Pierzynski made a motion back to the White Sox dugout, but then started running to first. “All of a sudden I see A.J. running and I’m confused,” said White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen. “I don’t know what’s going on.” Pierzynski, a catcher, had not been tagged by Paul so he figured he had nothing to lose. “I was going back to the dugout and realized he didn’t tag me so I thought, ‘OK, I’ll run,’ ”Pierzynski said. Eddings did nothing. Pierzynski reached first and ultimately, confusingly, he was called safe. Eddings ruled Paul had trapped the ball, that it had bounced off the dirt. In such a case, the catcher has to tag the runner, of if the ball actually gets away from him, throw him out at first. Paul said Eddings never indicated he thought the ball hit the dirt. “Normally in that situation the umpire yells, ‘No catch, no catch, no catch,’ ” Paul said. “I didn’t hear anything. That’s why I was headed to the dugout.” In truth, just to be safe, Paul should have tagged Pierzynski. If he had, there’s no controversy. When Pierzynski was ruled safe, manager Mike Scioscia exploded from the dugout in disbelief. Eddings had clearly rung Pierzynski up and Scioscia was dumbfounded he could now be ruled safe at first. “It was a swing, our catcher caught it, Doug Eddings called him out,” Scioscia said. Like it was so simple. Turns out, it was anything but. Eddings said that throwing a punch in the air didn’t actually mean he was out. “That’s my strike-three mechanic when it’s a swinging strike,” Eddings said. If so, then what on Earth is his out mechanic? “What’s he have to do, bring both hands up?” Scioscia asked. Scioscia argued for several minutes to no avail. Argued with crew chief Jerry Crawford, with Eddings, with every umpire within reach. All to no avail. Remarkably, after seeing the replay, Eddings said he made the right call because the ball changed direction. Naturally, it cost them the game. Pablo Ozuna pinch ran, stole second, and with an 0-2 count to Joe Crede, Scioscia still pitched to him and Crede lined a game-ending double off the wall. “I’m frustrated because we didn’t play well,” Scioscia said. “We didn’t play at a high enough level to absorb the bad breaks that come with a game. “It’s not the play that beat us, it’s the way we played.” For Scioscia, it was the right call. Somebody had to make one. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

first_imgA popular radio talk show host held his own against a PhD cosmologist who argues the universe came from nothing.For his weekly Ultimate Issues Hour, Dennis Prager voice-wrestled with Lawrence Krauss about his book, A Universe from Nothing.  Krauss, a theoretical physicist and Director of the Origins Project at Arizona State University, believes that a quantum fluctuation in the multiverse, combined with the laws of physics and natural selection, produced all the beauty and complexity of life.  Prager noted that he had researched Krauss at length before the program, watching many of his presentations and reading his book.  He quipped that he knew almost as much about Krauss as his mother does.Prager and Krauss first quibbled about the definition of “nothing.”  When Krauss tried to refer to particles (and galaxies) emerging from quantum fluctuations, Prager did not abide that as an adequate description of starting from nothing.  “Where did the laws of nature come from?” he asked.  When Krauss reverted to the multiverse as a source of multiply realizable probabilistic combinations of laws, Prager responded that such a response is not starting from nothing.  Prager also stressed that there is no evidence for a multiverse, so referring to it is not science.  Krauss said that same lack of evidence applies to belief in God.  Prager denied that, saying there is overwhelming evidence for God.Over and over, Krauss presented science in opposition to religion, claiming that he, as a scientist, was driven to form his views on the basis of evidence, rather than making up his conclusions in advance.  Yet Prager caught Krauss several times defending views in spite of the evidence.  Prager denied Krauss’s description of the conflict, claiming that it is atheistic scientists who refuse to consider God, whereas he (and other theologians and God-affirming philosophers) entertain regularly the proposition there is no God.Prager cited Krauss’s description of humans as “cosmic pollution” in the universe.  Krauss did not deny that description, but tried to defend the notion that humans create their own significance on earth by working to preserve our planet and help one another.  Prager noted that this does not show any ultimate significance for human life, because as Krauss wrote in his book, the universe is doomed for a heat death.  What gives man significance is being created in the image of God, he said.Prager claimed that science will never answer two fundamental questions, the origin of the universe and the origin of life.  While admitting that science does not now know these things, Krauss took umbrage at the suggestion that there are things science can never know.   He claimed, in fact that science is finding natural origins for amino acids, so science is perhaps ten years of discovering how life emerged.  Prager joked that he would accept that prediction, because it’s better than that of the global warming activists who put their predictions 50 years into the future.  Prager stood his ground that there are things science will never know, but did not elaborate why.Krauss claimed that science does not answer “why” questions but only “how” questions.  Without hesitation, Prager engaged that notion, returning immediately to the subject at hand, “OK, how did the universe come about from nothing?”  When Krauss tried to present “science” as “different” because of its reliance on evidence, Prager continued pressing the point that atheism is not based on evidence; in fact, it’s a denial of overwhelming evidence for God.  Krauss said science does not confirm things but falsifies them, implying that since science has not falsified the multiverse, it can be entertained as a scientific notion.  He claimed indirect evidence for the multiverse, saying that it is “well motivated” with suggestions from inflation theory, which he didn’t feel he had time to explain.  Prager called such notions unscientific.Krauss tried to disqualify anyone but cosmologists from speaking with authority about the origin of the universe.  When Prager presented a philosopher trained in physics who disagrees with Krauss about the existence of God, Krauss attempted to impugn the credibility of the philosopher by asking if he is “working as” a physicist – also implying by his tone that if he is “just” a “philosopher” he can be dismissed.  Krauss also distinguished public notions of “theory” with the way scientists use the term, pointing to quantum theory and universal gravitation as examples of well-tested theories.  He did not, however, defend inflation, the multiverse, and the origin of life as evidence-supported theories – only as notions that scientists continue to work on.The discussion was lively but respectful.  At points they were rapidly overtalking each other, but Prager began and ended by thanking Krauss for coming on the program, and Krauss replied in kind.  In his concluding remarks, Prager dismissed the multiverse hypothesis as a dodge, as if saying, “On this basketball court, we lost, but there are an infinite number of other basketball courts where we could win.”  He noted that Krauss could not explain our universe, thus admitting he had no scientific answer.  Prager also chuckled that he loved Krauss’s own description of humans as “cosmic pollution,” remarking that such conclusions follow if there is no God.On a related subject, the Discovery Institute announced today a new episode of a documentary about C. S. Lewis upon the 50th anniversary of his death.  It’s a presentation of John West’s chapter from the book The Magician’s Twin about C. S. Lewis’s views on intelligent design.  It can be watched at Evolution News & Views.Given the time constraints of a radio show, Prager did an admirable job of challenging the pretensions of this atheist cosmologist.  This shows that one does not need to be a physicist to find the flaws in the logic of scientists.  Prager acknowledged Krauss’s intellect and training.  Those attributes alone, however, do not justify foolish beliefs. Any layperson trained in baloney detecting can take on a fast-talking charlatan.  If a PhD says something stupid, it is still stupid.  The only thing required to see the nakedness of an emperor is working eyes.It’s clear that Krauss is a relic of the logical positivism or “scientism” that views science as a superior path to all truth.  Yet careful listening to his words revealed a great deal of evidence-free speculation motivated by emotional preference, wrapped in the intellectual arrogance of science with its presumptive authority to speak on ultimate issues.  It is not the facts of science that drive Krauss to atheism; it is rather his own bias against the evidence for God that drives him to seek possibilities other than God.  Notice his claim that the multiverse is “well motivated” – what does that imply?  It’s not the evidence that motivates it, because there is none!  What motivates it is the desire to escape the implications of clear evidence of design in the universe and life.Krauss also implied that once life appeared, natural selection would take care of the rest.  Prager did not challenge that notion, perhaps because it strayed from the topic at hand.  Observers should take note, though, how strongly atheism depends on Darwinism.  Without the magic wand of natural selection, atheism is dead.  The presumption that natural selection is all powerful, a sufficient creator for sonar, flight and Mozart, must be continually challenged as a myth.To his credit, Prager did point to Mozart as evidence for God.  That was a clever riposte, easily encompassing many points in one short, easily-understood statement.  In short, he was saying that he didn’t need to argue Scripture, dogma, or religious tradition.  Intelligent design not only explains Mozart’s symphonies, it explains Mozart himself.  This statement put the burden on Krauss to explain Mozart from non-intelligent material causes.  All that was implied in Prager’s quip, a “word fitly spoken” that didn’t require the long paragraph you are reading.  Learn how to cut to the chase like that.  Prager also illustrated how to hold a heated discussion as a gentleman, without making personal attacks.  His preparation for the guest, and his command of appropriate arguments for the topic, were also admirable.In the discussion about the definition of “nothing,” Prager did well.  He repeatedly nailed Krauss for starting with something – laws of nature, a multiverse, a quantum fluctuation or whatever.  Francis Schaeffer’s definition is stronger.  Schaeffer argued that to claim the universe came from nothing, one needs to start with what he called “nothing nothing” – not only the absence of matter and energy, but no categories.  He likened it to drawing a circle on a blackboard that represents everything that is, then erasing the circle.  Any definition short of that starts with something.  The next question, therefore, is “where did that something come from?” (Prager pointed that out).  A little reflection can assure the thinker that there is no defense, philosophically or scientifically, for getting something out of “nothing nothing.”  Krauss’s whole thesis of “a universe from nothing” is thus a bait-and-switch ruse.  Theists should be concerned that this ruse has been operating for 5 years as an “Origins Project” at Arizona State in the “science” department (as indeed it does in most secular universities).All Prager’s points were sound and well stated.  He could have undermined Krauss’s entire argument quicker, we think, by pointing out that materialism is self-refuting.  If Krauss believes his mind is the result of aimless processes rooted ultimately in chance, he can have no confidence that his beliefs are true – including his belief his mind is the result of aimless processes of chance.  “Science” is of no help for any self-refuting proposition; it is necessarily false.  It’s actually quite amusing to listen to a materialist use logic and argumentation to defend the idea that those things have no source!  It is our hope that readers listening to debates like the one on the radio today will be equipped, even without the assistance of a Dennis Prager or our website. to unmask the arrogance of those who, despite intellect and education, erroneously appropriate the presumptive authority of “science” to proclaim folly.(Visited 200 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
