Brentford reject West Ham bid for Hogan

first_imgBrentford have rejected an offer of £10m from West Ham for striker Scott Hogan.The Hammers’ bid comes after Premier League rivals Watford also made an enquiry about the 24-year-old’s availability.Although the Hornets have not tabled a formal offer, they are one of a number of clubs to show an interest in him.Reading have had a bid rejected, while Newcastle and Aston Villa have also previously been linked with Hogan, who has 14 Championship goals to his name this season.His former club Rochdale would get a slice of any transfer fee if Brentford – who valued him at around £15m – choose to sell.Hogan has 18 months of his contract at Griffin Park remaining.

How Intricate Patterns Grow in Flowers, Feathers

first_imgHow does a growing flower bud or feather follicle know where to put the intricate colors and patterns on a mature flower or feather?  Scientists are beginning to get partial answers.Flower art:  Imagine you’re a flower bud.  You are blind, deaf, and dumb, but somehow you know how to create beautiful artwork.  Through your efforts, a lovely rose, petunia or orchid will result.  How would you do it?  An article on Live Science suggests an amazing, though partial, answer: the bud has a map of the finished product.  “The shape of a flower’s petals and leaves are dictated by a biological map hidden inside the flower’s growing bud,” according to a new study from the John Innes Centre and the University of East Anglia, both in the UK.They discovered that concealed maps within the flower buds are made up of patterns of arrows that act as instructions for how each cell in the bud should grow. As such, the maps essentially influence a flower bud’s cell polarity, or the functions of the cells.The study’s findings not only shed light on why geranium petals are unlike rose petals, they also explain why an individual flower’s petals and leaves are different shapes.The “arrows” are made up of proteins called PIN proteins that migrate to the tips of cells.  When they concentrate, a pointed leaf results.  When they fan out, a rounded shape, like a flower petal results.  Other proteins follow the “arrows” to cause growth in those areas.  PLoS Biology discussed the paper in a little more detail.  The original paper in PLoS Biology described how the growth proteins follow the “polarity field” set up by the PIN proteins.Feather art:  Bird feathers are vastly different from flower petals, but another amazing “mapping” mechanism controls their development.  Feathers can contain stripes, spots, and nano-patterns that play tricks with light; see examples in PhysOrg‘s coverage of a paper in Science Magazine.  What turns on the dark and light patterns?  The new research paper by Lin et al., “Topology of Feather Melanocyte Progenitor Niche Allows Complex Pigment Patterns to Emerge,” offers the beginnings of an answer:Melanocyte progenitors are distributed as a horizontal ring in the proximal follicle, sending melanocytes vertically up into the epithelial cylinder which gradually emerges as feathers grow. Different pigment patterns form by modulating the presence, arrangement, or differentiation of melanocytes. A layer of peripheral pulp further regulates pigmentation via patterned agouti expression. Lifetime feather cyclic regeneration resets pigment patterns for physiological needs. Thus, the evolution of stem cell niche topology allows complex pigment patterning via combinatorial co-option of simple regulatory mechanisms.By “evolution,” the authors cannot assume that blind, undirected processes create the patterns any more than they create intricate feathers themselves.  They merely mean that stem cells are regulated to generate the patterns.  But what tells the stem cells to differentiate according to a predetermined pattern?  What created the pattern in the first place that these mechanisms execute?  The explanation begs even deeper questions.Speaking of feathers, how would you like to dive into a feather on the wing of a red-tailed hawk and see its microscopic structure?  You can live this adventure, along with many others, in a new film just released in May from Illustra Media entitled, Flight: The Genius of Birds. (Click the link for trailer and ordering information.)  With cutting-edge science, stunning photography, an original music score and a thoughtful narration aided by the insight of biologists, the film makes a convincing case for intelligent design.  Along with the previous release Metamorphosis: The Beauty and Design of Butterflies, this new entry forms the foundation to Illustra’s new series of high-quality nature documentaries, The Design of Life.  Both were produced in High-Definition Blu-ray with 5.1 surround sound.We are very happy to co-sponsor Flight: The Genius of Birds and will be drawing attention to it all month.  CEH Editor David Coppedge worked closely with the producer on scientific research and proofing, but it was the genius of the production team led by Lad Allen, with his editor Jerry Harned, working with the biologists, the animators, the composer Mark Lewis and the sound technicians, and others, who made this film a masterpiece.  The DVD is great, but if you have a good home theater, this is a film to enjoy in an immersive environment, with a Blu-ray player, a large screen and a surround sound system.  Flight is the equal of secular nature documentaries—but without the Darwinism that is merely assumed by the others.  It includes several incredible true stories about particular bird species.  After being amazed by what you learn, and how beautifully it is presented, we are sure you will want to order extra copies of Flight to pass around.  Order today!  DVD ships May 14, Blu-ray on June 11.And by all means, if you haven’t yet watched Metamorphosis, order them both!  Readers delighted with the exceptional work of Illustra Media should support them financially.  They have plans to augment The Design of Life series with more superb documentaries on the wonders of the living world.  Nobody does it better than Illustra!  Their films are reaching around the world.  Be part of a team that is dismantling Darwinist materialism with clear, powerful, convincing evidence for design.

The flower was a nice finishing touch to my costume for the evening and i have been able to get more use of it since – it’s quite large but not so big it can’t be worn for a meal or event without costume. Wore it for my birthday meal last week and received lots of nice comments on my accessory. Looks nice, but far too big and bulky for my hair.

BuildingBulletins: Social Gets Hyperlocal With Apartment-Friendly App

first_imgRelated Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… jolie odell Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Can apartment buildings be communities? Modern times bear little resemblance to the A Tree Grows In Brooklyn, it-takes-a-village scenes of yesteryear; but one startup, at least, is attempting to foster a greater sense of community on a hyperlocal level.BuildingBulletins provides a simple, social interface for building residents to communicate with one another on just about any relevant topic. From community classes to Craigslist-style classifieds, the site lets residents connect with their neighbors and, as one of their cofounders wrote to us, “get stuff done in their building.”So far, user adoption for the self-funded site is fairly minimal; the most active building boasts 6 users who are residents. Overall, the site has 48 discussions happening in 112 buildings. Ultimately, it’s going to take more users in more buildings to make the site work. But the beauty of a hyperlocal tool like this is that even if only a handful of buildings have users on the site, as long as the saturation of active users in those buildings is fairly high, the site could be useful and successful.The creators say the site’s bulletin boards and other features, such as a live chat module and a building calendar, can be used to make new friends, create discussion topics, organize events, advertise real estate or rentals, buy or sell items, submit pictures and other information about a building, find a house-sitter, and yes, hook up with other residents to avoid that long walk home.As a sterling example, the residents of Barclay Tower in TriBeCa are using the site to organize a pool party meet-and-greet, complain to one another about the noise, gush about their respective dogs, and chat about the building’s lease capacity.We also particularly liked the Google Maps-powered auto-search features to find nearby restaurants, grocery stores, banks, etc. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#start#startups 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market BuildingBulletins is a charming tool that fosters community within neighborhoods, something that’s decreased greatly in the digital age but seems to be on the upswing with sites and apps such as this one, BrightKite, Foursquare, and their ilk. It’s almost enough to make us want to move back into apartments again.last_img read more

first_imgKaka admits he had problems with Mourinho at Real Madridby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveKaka has spoken of his problems with Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid.The Ballon d’Or winner admits he had issues with ‘The Special One.'”I was convinced that Real Madrid would be good, I think I was persistent, I got as far as I could, to my limit,” he said to Grande Circulo de SporTV.”My problem at Madrid was continuity first and then the coach, as I spent three years trying to convince Mourinho that I should have more opportunities but it was his choice, it was out of my control.”The first year I had a hip problem, then the adductor and I was operated on.”I was out of action for six months and when I returned, it was Mourinho.”I was an excellent professional, and today I can say with great joy that I can go to Real Madrid and the doors are always open.”Florentino says that I was one of the most professional athletes in the club.”Once Mourinho left, however, things didn’t get any better for the Brazilian.”In the 2013/14 season, with the arrival of Carlo Ancelotti, Florentino Perez wanted to renew the team with players from the academy and new players, and Ancelotti was very clear with me.”He told me that the president had asked for these people to play and I told him that I had to play because I wanted to be at the World Cup, so the best option was to leave. “With football being such a small world, it was inevitable that Kaka would cross paths with Mourinho again.”There’s no problem,” he added.”I went to Manchester to a sponsor’s event, I stayed at the same hotel as him and we stayed talking for two hours.”Mourinho is exactly what people see on camera, at the time he’s explosive, but he is an extremely intelligent, very prepared guy, so what people see in the interviews is all prepared.” About the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
