impressive Brazil thump Bolivia

first_img Bleeding forehead NATAL, Brazil (AP): Brazil maintained its momentum in South America’s World Cup qualifiers by thrashing Bolivia 5-0 on Thursday, staying a point behind Uruguay, which stayed on top after defeating Venezuela. Elsewhere, Copa America champions Chile sank even lower after losing 3-0 to Ecuador, while Colombia managed to beat Paraguay away 1-0 with a goal in the dying minutes. An Argentina team missing star Lionel Messi managed a draw at Peru. “Ole, ole, ole, ole … Tite! Tite!” It had been ages since a Brazil coach had the pleasure of being hailed as a hero by fans. But that happened on Thursday to Adenor Bacchi, universally known as Tite, only three games after getting the job and winning his third consecutive match for Brazil. Nearly all 30,000 supporters at the Arena das Dunas in sunny Natal, in the country’s Northeast, sounded excited about the 55-year-old from the beginning to the end of the hammering of the Bolivians. The goals were scored by Neymar (10), Philippe Coutinho (25), Filipe Luis (38), Gabriel Jesus (44) and Roberto Firmino (75). Brazil’s goalkeeper, Alison barely touched the ball during the entire game. Asked about the reaction of fans in the post-match press conference, Tite held the tears and looked above as he repeated “thank you”. After victories over Ecuador, Colombia and Bolivia, Brazil is second in the table with 18 points, one behind leaders Uruguay. Bolivia is ninth with seven points. “We feel that the atmosphere here has changed for the better,” right-back Dani Alves said at the end of the match, without mentioning Tite’s predecessor, Dunga. Barcelona star Neymar delivered a great performance in the 65 minutes he was on the pitch before he left with a bleeding forehead caused by a Bolivian elbow. He scored the opening goal, repeatedly dribbled through Bolivia’s defense, irritated the opposition but also picked his third yellow card, which suspends him from Tuesday’s clash against Venezuela, in Merida. Neymar’s goal was the 300th of his career, according with the Brazilian Football Confederation. These figures include all those he scored for Brazil, Santos and Barcelona as a professional since 2009. He also surpassed midfielder Zico as the 4th top goalscorer in Brazil’s history. Now Neymar only trails Romario (56), Ronaldo (67) and Pele (95). The Barcelona star is 24 years-old. No Lionel Messi meant no party for Argentina at Peru. After leading twice, Argentina conceded a late goal to the hosts, which resulted in a draw. New coach Edgardo Bauza struggled to make his midfield more fluent and Manchester City’s striker Sergio Aguero failed to lead the team in Messi’s absence. Argentina’s goals were scored by Funes Mori (15) and Gonzalo Higuain (77). Peru initially equalised through Paolo Guerrero (58) and again with a penalty converted by Christian Cueva. Now Argentina is 5th in the standings with 16 points, the same as Ecuador and Colombia. South American qualifying leader Uruguay was not surprised by last-place Venezuela in Montevideo and won 3-0 in convincing fashion.last_img read more

Australian university pulls plug on climate skeptics center

first_imgSYDNEY, AUSTRALIA—The Australian government’s controversial move to host a think tank headed by noted global warming skeptic Bjørn Lomborg has unraveled—for now. But Australia’s education minister has vowed to find a new home for the center at a willing institution.Last month, the University of Western Australia (UWA) in Perth announced plans to set up an Australian Consensus Centre (ACC), chaired by Lomborg, that would conduct policy research on overseas aid, Australian prosperity, agriculture, and regional issues. UWA announced that the federal government would contribute roughly one-third of ACC’s operating costs. The rest of the budget would come from corporate sponsors and government grants.  Scientists were outraged, especially when UWA revealed on 20 April that the government had already contributed AU$4 million to launch the think tank. That’s a hefty sum to a scientific community that has had to tighten its belt in recent months. The 2014 budgets for five major R&D agencies endured a combined cut of more than AU$420 million; the lead R&D agency, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, has had to close labs and facilities and is slated to have eliminated almost 1300 jobs by the end of next month, representing a 20% cut to its workforce.

Required fields are indicated by an asterisk (*)center_img Email Given such shaky support for science, ACC’s establishment “is an insult to Australia’s scientific community,” says mammalogist Tim Flannery, a founder of the nonprofit Climate Council. He and others contend ACC is politically motivated: Since coming into power in September 2013, the conservative government has scrapped Australia’s Clean Energy Act and the government’s Climate Change Authority and shuttered the independent Climate Change Commission, claiming its AU$1.5 million annual operating costs were too expensive.Outrage grew after Fairfax Media newspapers revealed on 23 April that the push for ACC came from Prime Minister Tony Abbott, a Lomborg admirer who quoted the Danish researcher favorably in his 2009 book Battlelines. Although Lomborg has said he accepts that the climate is changing, he has downplayed global warming’s contribution in two popular books, The Skeptical Environmentalist and Cool It, and in reports from his Copenhagen Consensus Centre, a network registered as a U.S. nonprofit. Lomborg argues that money spent cutting greenhouse gas emissions would be better spent on climate change adaptation or tackling poverty. In March, Abbott invited Lomborg to launch the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s Innovation Hub and Lomborg now sits on a government-appointed panel advising Australia’s foreign aid programs.Lomborg’s influence in Australia irks researchers like Matt England, a climate scientist at University of New South Wales. “Lomborg has been discredited over the years with some bizarre statements about climate physics,” England asserts. “He just doesn’t get it.”In a letter to UWA’s head of corporate and governance affairs, obtained by Fairfax Media, neuroscientist Sarah Dunlop, head of the university’s School of Animal Biology, claimed that Lomborg lacks the academic track record to justify his appointment as an adjunct professor. At a packed meeting of the university academic council on 24 April, she called on UWA to cut its relationship with Lomborg.With “great regret and disappointment,” UWA Vice-Chancellor Paul Johnson announced on 8 May that he had advised the federal government that the university would cancel the contract to set up ACC and return the money. But the saga is not over, Minister for Education and Training Christopher Pyne assured supporters via Twitter the next day. “Don’t worry, I’m certain we’ll find a new home for the Australian Consensus Centre,” he tweeted. Lomborg told The Guardian on 8 May that he is committed to ACC because his research  is “far too important to let fall victim to toxic politics” and “grossly misinformed attacks.”last_img read more

Neighbor Kills HBCU Grad Who Was Seeking Protection

first_img 22 Times Racists Got Dealt With On Video For Being Racist Tyrique Hudson was recently killed by his white neighbor after asking the court for a protective order against the guy. The judge denied the protective order because it wasn’t enough evidence. Tyrique was killed last week on his way to work by this same neighbor. He was only 22 pic.twitter.com/rPTZSZMQPb— lebronsbae (@Baiellieo) April 24, 2019 Hudson, a 22-year-old graduate of North Carolina A&T University, was killed in the stairwell of his apartment building just outside of Baltimore. He had filed a formal report after an earlier incident where Verombeck, 53, threatened to kill him and a protective order was granted. District Court Judge Devy Patterson Russell later voided the order. A petition on Change.org has garnered nearly 14,000 signatures in an effort to get Russell’s removed from the bench. A Black man was killed by a white neighbor in Maryland after a judge denied his request for protection. He said the neighbor had made death threats.Tyrique Hudson was 22 and a recent college graduate.His alleged killer James Verombeck is in custody and charged with murder. pic.twitter.com/q3YXZiQpjE— AJ+ (@ajplus) April 26, 2019“I feel like they’ve failed my son,” Hudson’s mother, Tonya Burch told CBS Baltimore on Thursday April 18.“They failed me. He had a bright and promising future.”Hudson had moved to Maryland last summer to begin his promising career as a software engineer after graduating early. He had recently begun working for Northrop Grumman. On the day he was killed he was preparing to move into a new building because he feared for his life.Russell has been placed on temporary assignment as the Maryland Court of Appeals decides if she should face suspension for her actions. According to the Capital Gazette, the Commission on Judicial Disabilities suggested Russell be suspended for six months, saying she violated state law and failed to keep up with administrative work. The Baltimore Sun has reported that she has also been accused of screaming at other judges, pushing a staffer and neglecting more than 100 search warrants.Verombeck was arrested after a 10-hour standoff with SWAT and has been charged with first-degree murder.SEE ALSO:Everything We Know About Suspected White Supremacist Accused Of Burning Down Black ChurchesJudge OKs Release Of Accused Domestic Terrorist Who Allegedly Wanted To Kill Cory Booker And Kamal Harris Morehouse Students Take To Social Media And Claim Sexual Harassment Complaints Were Ignored North Carolina A&T University , Tyrique Hudson Tensions High As Alt-Right Activist Richard Spencer Visits U.

Russell denied the protective order claiming Hudson did not “meet the burden of proof” as this was just one incident and not a pattern of behavior. Yet the petition shows this was not Verombeck’s first run-in with protective orders.According to the online petition, electronic records show that Verombeck was arrested in 2010 for violating a protective order. In 2009 a protective order was issued regarding domestic violence and in 1996, he was charged with reckless endangerment, concealing a deadly weapon, disorderly conduct in a public place and having an unregistered rifle or shotgun. While the other charges were dropped, he was found guilty on the latter charge. White Tears! Former Meteorologist Files Lawsuit Claiming He Was Fired Because Of Diversitylast_img read more
