Both Berlin and New York were also cancelled, leaving London – which was moved from April 26 to October 4 – as the last marathon race standing. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… The Chicago Marathon became the latest major marathon to fall victim to the coronavirus on Monday as organisers confirmed cancellation of the race for only the second time in its history. The decision had been largely expected, with several other major marathons around the world already suffering the same fate because of the pandemic. The 43rd edition of the race was due to take place on October 11, with an estimated field of around 45,000 runners and wheelchair athletes. “The Chicago Marathon is our city’s beloved annual celebration of more than 45,000 runners, as well as tens of thousands of volunteers, spectators and city residents,” Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said. “Like all Chicagoans, I’m personally disappointed that this year’s event won’t take place as originally planned; however, we look forward to welcoming all runners and their cheering squads once again when the Chicago Marathon returns to our city in full force for another very exciting race.” Race director Carey Pinkowski said the decision had been taken with the safety of participants and volunteers in mind. “We understand the disappointment, but when we return to the streets of Chicago, it will be a celebratory moment and an uncompromising statement about the collective spirit of who we are as a running community: We are powerful, we are persistent, and we will reach the finish line again,” Pinkowski said. Chicago is one of the world’s six Major marathons along with races in Tokyo, Boston, London, Berlin and New York. The Chicago race was last cancelled in 1987 after a loss of sponsorship.last_img read more

Ranney Robotics Club Competes in Top Tournament

first_imgTINTON FALLS – The Ranney School Robot­ics Club has been working hard all year to design, build and drill their robots for multiple competitions. All their hard work paid off recently when one of the Upper School robotics teams, led by Raymond Moser ’15 of Shrewsbury, had the opportunity to travel to Anaheim, Calif., and compete in the VEX World Robotics Championship.Members of the Ranney School Robotics Club.More than 15,000 people, including students, teachers, coaches and industry leaders attended the event, representing 24 countries. Approxi­mately 700 teams competed at the middle school, high school and college level.  Simply qualifying for the championship meet meant that the Ranney team ranked in the top 9 percent of all teams worldwide.The event was streamed live and part of it was shown during the April 18 Ranney School Lower School Science Fair on the RSPA Panther Hall and Roberts Stage screen.“The experience was extre­me­ly valuable because we learned many different methods of improving our robot’s speed, size and agility for next year,” said Noel Delgado, dean of students, who attended the competition with robotics team coach Raymond Moser. “With a larger robotics space planned for next year, a 2013-2014 robotics class offering, as well as several supporting gifts from families, our team will be larger, more enthusiastic, better equipped and superbly prepared for next year’s tournament. Our goal is to bring two of our teams to next year’s world championship.”last_img read more

Selkirk College Saints Keep Focus on Work Ethic

first_img“I chose Selkirk College because the strong programs and smaller class sizes,” says Iles, who will either take the Forest Technology Program or the Heavy Mechanical Foundation Program. “I also chose Selkirk College because I love living in the Kootenays and playing for a prestigious team like the Saints is an honour.”Iles is a two-way forward who is known for his ability to win faceoffs, but Heaven says it’s the overall style of play that made the Whistler native stand out.“He has an ability to get under the skin of his opponent while still contributing offensively,” says Heaven, who is heading into his third season as head coach. “His tenacious persistence will be a huge asset to our roster given his record of being a leader on every team over his junior career.”Harding is a six-foot defenceman who played Junior A last season with the Elliot Lake Wildcats in the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League (NOJHL).“Connor is an extremely hard working individual with a desire and commitment to physical fitness,” says Heaven. “He competes extremely hard, has a great first pass and plays with edge. Connor should bring another level of excitement to our defensive core.”Harding will enter the Business Administration Program when classes begin this coming September on the Castlegar Campus.“I decided to return to British Columbia and attend Selkirk College for the quality education and championship history of the program,” says Harding, who is originally from West Kelowna.After winning a historic four straight BCIHL championships, the Saints’ drive-for-five was stopped short this past spring when they were defeated in the league semi-final by the Trinity Western University Spartans. The 2017-2018 BCIHL season begins in September. A culture of hard work is what has contributed to the massive success for the Selkirk College Saints over the last few seasons and the team has added a pair of recruits that will help continue the trend.Grant Iles and Connor Harding have committed to play for the Saints in the upcoming British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) season, both arriving with a proven record of tenacity and grit during their junior hockey careers.“There are not very many nights over the course of the season where our team gets out-worked,” says Saints head coach Brent Heaven. “Both of these players have shown that they will fit in very well because of their commitment to compete hard every shift.”Iles arrives to Selkirk College after finishing his junior eligibility with the Creston Valley Thunder Cats of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League (KIJHL). The 20-year-old forward scored 14 goals and added 18 assists while playing under former Saints head coach Jeff Dubois.last_img read more

O’Meara set for York Hall return

first_imgSteve O’Meara is set to return to action on 14 September at York Hall – the venue where his last two fights have ended in spectacular first-round wins.The light-middleweight beat fellow West Londoner Ryan Toms there to become southern area champion last September and flattened Nathan Weise three months later.O’Meara, who was born in Shepherd’s Bush and lives in West Drayton, will feature in a six-round bout at the iconic Bethnal Green venue with his opponent yet to be confirmed.A victory would be another step towards a British title shot for the 28-year-old.“I’m on a roll at the York Hall at the moment with winning my last two fights in a round so it would be great to make it three in a row next month,” said O’Meara,“Saying that, if it it doesn’t come in the first round then I won’t be too gutted. I prefer to get in the rounds so that I’m building up the experience as I build towards a British title shot.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Bacterial Flagellum Visualized

first_imgTom Magnuson at Access Research Network found this link that came out last year but is too good to pass up: another visualization of the bacterial flagellum, the “poster child of the ID movement,” by Japanese researchers on NanoNet, the Nanotechnology Researchers Network Center of Japan.  The 02/05/2004 NanoNet Bulletin features the bacterial flagellum with still images from a stunning movie they made, A Rotary Nanomachine, downloadable from the site.  The movie contains crisp animations of the flagellar motor at work and features amazing facts about how the propeller is assembled, molecule by molecule, at the growing tip.  The film (34 minutes, 36mb) also tells the story of how challenging it was for the team to image the nanometer-scale parts of the system.    Another issue, 09/16/2004 NanoNet Bulletin tells how professor Masasuke Yoshido first visualized the rotation of another biomolecular rotary motor, ATP synthase.  The entire website is concerned with nanotechnology, and many of the articles blur the distinction between biological and artificial machines.This film makes a terrific follow-up to Unlocking the Mystery of Life for those interested in additional technical details of how the flagellum works.  The animations are superb.  Nobody would be able to look at this system and say it wasn’t designed – it looks for all the world like finely-crafted machinery.  The researchers are in awe of the precision of the parts and the efficiency of the motor.  Is it any wonder that there is no mention of evolution?  On the contrary, the word design is key: “Looking at the shape of the flagellar basal body,” said Keiici Namba, the interviewee, “it is obviously designed to rotate.”    Dr. Namba also said something that shows how biological design can stimulate a Darwin-free research program: “Looking at a picture of the flagellar motor on the wall every day,” he said in Asianized English, “I feel up towards revealing the mystery by any means.”  How it works – and what we can learn from the design – those ideas borrow nothing from Darwinian theory, and sound remarkably similar to the motivations of Robert Boyle, James Joule and many other creation scientists throughout history.  None of the People of Froth (the Anti-ID crowd) could claim that these Japanese researchers had a religious motivation for making this film or for doing their cutting-edge research.  School boards can show this film as proof that design-based science is powerful and productive.  The end of science?  Bringing science to a halt?  Taking us back to the Dark Ages?  Bosh—this is the future of active, fruitful, motivating research that will inspire young scientists and bring the best technology to bear on understanding biological realities (see 10/29/2005 story).    Intelligent design is not so much about making additions to science, but rather some blessed subtractions: removing the useless fluff of Darwinian speculation and storytelling (12/22/2003) that produces nothing but vaporware on back order.  Throughout history (see online book), the design perspective has mastered the machinery of science that produces the goods.(Visited 32 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Five things to know about the merger of PC Points and Shoppers

first_imgTwo of Canada’s better-known rewards programs merge today as Shoppers Optimum and PC Plus become PC Optimum.Loblaw says they’ve had some “bumps” during the merger, with some members complaining online about troubles with the new app and points conversions. However, the company says it’s seeing massive interest in the program and will continue to focus on making the conversion process as smooth as possible.Here are five things to know:1. PC Optimum means a single card for both stores, with the dollar value of existing points from both programs converted to the new card. Current PC Plus cardholders will have points converted on a one-to-one basis, while the company is converting Shoppers Optimum points at varying rates to maintain the same dollar value of the points.2. To convert current points to the new system, customers can go to one of the almost 2,500 stores the system covers to swap existing PC Plus or Shoppers Optimum cards for a PC Optimum card. Customers can also download the PC Optimum mobile app, or create an account online at www.pcoptimum.ca.3. Under PC Optimum, each 1,000 points is worth a dollar, with 10,000 points the minimum redemption value. At Shoppers almost every dollar spent will earn you 15 points, while at Loblaw-owned grocery stores rewards vary based on promotions on specific products.4. For PC Financial Mastercard holders, the card automatically switches to PC Optimum and is the only card necessary with points earned varying depending on the type of card.5. In Quebec, where Shoppers Drug Mart operates under the Pharmaprix name, the Pharmaprix Optimum program ended Jan. 31, 2018 and members will have until May 2 that year to redeem their points or convert them at equal value to the new program.last_img read more
