False alarm for RNLI lifeboat and rescue helicopter at Mulroy Bay

first_imgThe Lough Swilly lifeboat was launched this morning following an emergency alert at Mulroy Bay.The Rescue 118 helicopter and Mulroy Bay Coastguard were involved in the search at 7.45am after a signal was received from an Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB).The incident turned out to be a false alarm, as the EPIRB had become detached from a vessel. The operation was stood down after rescuers confirmed that no vessels were in difficulty.False alarm for RNLI lifeboat and rescue helicopter at Mulroy Bay was last modified: August 6th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Lough Swilly RNLIMULROY BAYRESCUE 118last_img read more

Big Science Goes Total Left in Opposing Trump

first_imgHave they no shame? Science is not supposed to take political positions. What they’re doing this week undermines their credibility as unbiased seekers of the truth.Everyone knows the country is deeply divided politically, but there are certain groups who should keep out of politics on company time. If a scientist wants to express his or her views privately, that’s legit as it is for any citizen. But pretending that ‘science’ per se (as represented through scientific institutions and journals) only has one view of the new president is out of bounds. Maybe Big Media is refusing to report on scientists who support the new administration, but all you read in the major media is that ‘scientists’ not only dislike President Trump; they vow to fight him. Here are some samples:dScientists join massive protest against Trump (Nature). What could be clearer? “Scientists,” an imprecise group if there ever was one, are “against Trump.” Conversely, as the article implies, Trump is against science — and against “diversity” and “equality,” too. Sara Reardon reports, “Researchers at Women’s March in Washington DC defend their work as US president takes office.” Conservative scientists or researchers need not apply, because they don’t even exist in this broad-brush generalization. Nature also posted tweets from “Scientists on their hopes and fears for Trump administration” — only negative tweets, of course. Example from an anonymous Mr. E: “As teacher of well-founded Theory of Evolution, I worry about science under #BetsyDeVos & her science denying ilk. ”Climate scientists brace themselves for a Trump-led witch-hunt (New Scientist). “Witch-hunt?” Them’s fightin’ words. And the leftist pseudo-science rag New Scientist is fightin’ with ’em. Scientists, that is. Global warmists. Panicked piglets at the government teat.THE Climate forecast for the next four years is bleak. Donald Trump notoriously tweeted in 2012 that global warming was a hoax created by China to damage US manufacturing. As president-elect, he has chosen a climate change denialist to head the Environmental Protection Agency, and his pick for the helm of the energy department (DOE) is Rick Perry, who once suggested dismantling it.Question: if the DOE were dismantled, would it warm the planet or change anything? The DOE didn’t even exist until the summer of 1977. Take a moment to watch Bjorn Lomborg allay the fears and non-reason of these fearmongers (Prager University). The over-the-top propaganda words in the NS article are unworthy of science. If you thought for a moment that NS is a “news” site, pay attention to the bottom of the article, where they tell climate scientists where they can get legal counsel. The BBC is in on the campaign across the pond, too, promoting the march on Washington and the rogue Twitter accounts – no mention of the friendly meeting yesterday between President Trump and their own Prime Minister, Theresa May.Scientists Plan Washington March in Response to Trump (Live Science). Laura Geggel reports only scientists in favor of protesting Trump and his policies, giving the impression that ‘scientists’ represent a monolithic political bloc. Her bias mirrors that of the mainstream media, who gave 129 times more coverage of the anti-Trump women’s march on Washington compared to the March for Life (source: Newsbusters). A website was made to advertise the event, scientistsmarchonwashington.com.‘Rogue’ Science Agency Twitter Accounts Mock Trump-Ordered Restrictions (Space.com). Like Geggel, reporter Tariq Malik presents only anti-Trump positions of selected people pretending to speak for science. These people have set up unofficial Twitter accounts emblazoned with the logos of federal agencies such as the National Park Service, NOAA and NASA, to blast the new administration and its policies. Then Malik hands the baton back to Geggel with a link to her anti-Trump article about the march on Washington. Incidentally, Mindy Waisgerber presents the same bias in her Live Science article about the rogue Twitter accounts.3 Things You Need to Know About the Science Rebellion Against Trump (National Geographic). Et tu, NG? This blatantly partisan article by Paul Nicklen slanders Trump about orders “silencing” certain department heads without giving any response from the administration’s side. Nicklen makes it seem like Trump is acting out of personal peeve instead of studied position. The “heroes” of Trump’s “muzzling” of these departments (which do, after all, report to him), are scientists fighting his alleged “attacks” on science, and those supporting the march on Washington. One wishes in vain for a response by Kellyanne Conway, Mike Pence or Reince Priebus in the name of fairness, but Nicklen’s advocacy piece is nothing short of a battle cry, shouting ‘bravo‘ to the anti-Trump forces. And he calls it “three things you need to know.”Doomsday Clock Ticks Half-Minute Closer to Midnight in Historic Move (Live Science). It should be patently obvious to any thinking person that this “Doomsday Clock” scientists keep promoting has nothing to do with science, since nobody can foresee the future. It’s only a visualization gimmick to further certain political objectives. By reporting this charade, Mindy Waisberger joins with the self-appointed prophets to engage in fear-mongering about Trump’s election and his apparent denial of the science of man-caused global warming.What is fascism? (Live Science). Fascism belongs in the history and political science departments, not “live science.” In this not-so-subtle salvo against the Trump administration, Jessie Szalay pretends to offer a balanced presentation of the political history and nature of fascism, citing history experts. The opening photo shows Mussolini and Hitler. The timing of this article, however, is highly suspect, coming right after Democrats have accused Trump of fascism and ‘Hitlerian’ statements. That could be OK, shedding light on history, if Szalay also included some balance to defend Trump against the slander, but Szalay misrepresents conservatism as a stepping stone to fascism. Any mention of the anti-Trump protestors sporting blatantly communist slogans and resorting to violence? Crickets.Women’s access to birth control and abortion fading under Trump (New Scientist). Shouldn’t it be good news that abortion is becoming “safe, legal and rare” for liberals who once advocated those descriptive words? What could science possibly have to do with abortion? For all practical purposes, scientists would have to agree that a human life begins at conception, when a full complement of unique human genes began the developmental program toward birth. Why does NS writer Clare Wilson begin her anti-life rant with a photo of protestors with signs, “Stand with Planned Parenthood,” when that abortion provider was founded by a notorious eugenicist and racist?Those are just a few recent articles showing the lopsided political bias of Big Science. We’re not even caught up yet on the latest news. Trump hasn’t even done much concerning science after one week in office other than sign some executive orders, and the Senate has dragged on confirmation of his Cabinet appointees. Wouldn’t it be more scientific to actually watch for some data to come in, rather than to shout that the sky is falling? Who knows; liberals might even like some of Trump’s policies a year from now.It bears repeating: there are many great individual scientists who do quality work in their specialties, regardless of their political feelings. But their institutions — Big Science and its lapdog, Big Media –have gone so radically far left that they cannot be taken seriously when they engage in blatant, overt, shameless political advocacy. Treat them like you would Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Clinton. (Visited 70 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Chiliphone Changes Color of This One Button

first_imgRelated Posts Tags:#gaming#Government#Internet TV#web 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… The rationale behind Chiliphone‘s recent shopping spree became clear this morning with the change of the “About” navigation button from burnt sienna to seafoam green. In the last year, Chiliphone (“Where Wireless Technology and Good Chili Meet”) has snapped up Flancastr, Drizzlr, Logbundler, Satanax, iFeebl and 4waybudEbooth. The purchases initially baffled users and analysts both. Flancastr is a podcasting host devoted to food shows and Drizzlr is a glazing app, both of which made sense for the company. But Logbundler was a forestry database company; Satanax, a one-click website evilizer; iFeebl, a chat client for dimwits; and 4waybudeBooth, a social network for exhibitionists. Chiliphone’s Dr. Emrick Swain explained. “The rounded button at the side of each page that takes users back to the About page was almost salmon-colored. People were mistaking it for a veal medallion. Delicious, but misleading. With the combined programming talents of our acquisitions – the hot-link know-how of Logbundler’s Dr. Timothy Arnold, the XML skills of Drizzlr’s Dr. Gerold Schartz, the Java chops of Flancastr’s Dr. Kelvin Holland – we were able to affect the transition of this vital part of our company’s public-facing UI to a more pleasant seafoam green.” The greening of the button puts the company in line for both federal and Charcuterie County tax breaks, as well qualifying it for the generous Chazz Buildington Socks-With-Sandals grant program.More to the point, it makes the tool, both in its online and app iterations, imminently more usable, according to Dr. Steve Quickly, head of R&D for Chiliphone. Not so, said Dr. Bob Folder, program manager in charge of Chiliphone’s Button Coloration Transition Program (BUTTCOTPRO). “No. It just doesn’t matter. Not one tiny bit under any circumstances. I have no idea why we did this in the first place, but to make a big deal out of it is just stone cold stupid.”The company could not have made the transition without the hard work of everyone at Chiliphone, as well as their new subsidiaries, said Dr. Bill Schwing, who took over program management duties when Folder resigned four lines ago to spend more time with his family.But the most important aspect of this news, as both Chiliphone executives and tech news consumers have acknowledged, is that ReadWriteWeb published it first.

Cisco Hires Barclays To Help It Off-Load Linksys

first_imgRelated Posts 7 Types of Video that will Make a Massive Impac… Why You Love Online Quizzes How to Write a Welcome Email to New Employees? Wardrivers take note: You may not have as many Linksys routers to hack if Cisco’s rumored sale of its consumer-facing Linksys unit actually happens. Well, you will, but the technology may be in a whole other form.The name “Linksys” was synonymous with home-network routers throughout the world, as driving with a Wi-Fi device down most streets will demonstrate. I can go out into my backyard right now and find three Linksys networks in range (along with a couple of Netgear routers and a whole bunch of AT&T U-Verse and Comcast routers).The proliferation of AT&T U-Verse and Comcast routers may be one of the reasons why Bloomberg is reporting that Cisco has hired investment-bank Barclays Plc. to sell the Linksys unit, which Cisco bought with much fanfare for $500 million in 2003.Cisco is not commenting on this news, so one should take it with the requisite grain of salt. But the move would match Cisco’s pattern of dumping its consumer businesses. In April 2011, Cisco announced it would shut down its Flip camera business. The idea was — and still is — to get back to Cisco’s priorities: “core routing, switching and services; collaboration; architectures; and video.”Presumably Linksys would not fall into core routing, but one would imagine that Cisco might make an exception for its subsidiary if Linksys were bringing in significant money.When Cisco picked up Linksys for a mere half-billion dollars, it was estimated that router maker had something like 39% of the home-networking market. Orders for Linksys products have since weakened significantly. In 2010, In-Stat said Linksys’ revenue amounted to just 9% of total revenue for the market segment.One reason why Linksys may have stumbled so far could be broadband providers policy of leasing equipment to customers — equipment that comes as part of the deal for most broadband contracts. While tech-savvy consumers are more likely to save the monthly equipment rental fee to go buy something else on their own, a majority of subscribers won’t bother.Linksys devices were occasionally part of the packages offered by the broadband firms, but not often enough to change its fate.For these people, the rental cost is transparent; just something that’s part of the monthly bill. Plus, setting up a router on your own, when the one that the broadband provider gave you is working just fine seems silly to them. Normally, I could get haughty about security, but when my provider came in to install its box, the installers actually gave me a good lecture about changing the router’s default password. (I sent the router back, but just to save the money.)This will not be the end of Linksys, of course. There is already speculation that the technology will shift to the set-top box sector, and that’s a pretty good guess. It’s a very sure bet that Cisco won’t get nearly the price that it paid for the company nine years ago. But that will have to be the price Cisco pays to for its realignment.center_img Tags:#networking brian proffitt Growing Phone Scams: 5 Tips To Avoidlast_img read more
