“How much is it going to cost?” Biden asked about Sanders’s Medicare for All bill which estimates the project would cost tens of trillions of dollars. “Who do you think is going get that passed” in Congress? Biden performed more aggressively than in previous showings, seizing a chance to argue that today’s global tensions required an experienced statesman to guide the nation out of a dark period.Despite the Iowa setback he also made plain he still views himself as best placed to mount a centrist challenge to the Republican Trump, who this week survived an impeachment trial that did little to dent his electoral support. A national unknown one year ago, Buttigieg has run an ambitious campaign that resonated with voters who appreciate his articulate explanations of policy.But rivals including Senator Amy Klobuchar argued Buttigieg is an untested novice on the world stage.”We have a newcomer in the White House, and look where it got us,” she said in a gibe at both Buttigieg and Trump.Buttigieg draws on his experience as a military veteran to cast himself as a credible commander-in-chief.And he advanced his central argument for generational change as the best way to take on the nation’s tests. “The biggest risk we could take at a time like this would be to go up against the fundamentally new challenge by trying to fall back on the familiar,” Buttigieg said.- ‘Trump’s worst nightmare’ -Also onstage in New Hampshire were Senator Elizabeth Warren, entrepreneur Andrew Yang and billionaire activist Tom Steyer.Klobuchar, a pragmatist from Minnesota, put in a forceful performance as she voiced her opposition to Sanders and Warren, arguing their liberal plans would only divide voters.”Truthfully, Donald Trump’s worst nightmare is a candidate that will bring people in from the middle,” she said.While Biden held his own, he acknowledged he was fighting an uphill battle in the first two voting states.”I took the hit in Iowa and I’ll probably take it here,” he said, in apparent recognition that Sanders is likely to win New Hampshire, which borders his home state of Vermont.Democratic tensions have simmered as the party struggles to decide whether to take incremental progressive steps or a more radical turn as proposed by self-declared democratic socialist Sanders.At one point candidates were asked whether they would be concerned should a democratic socialist win the nomination. Klobuchar and others raised their hands. As the seven debaters clashed, another candidate loomed in the background.Former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg chose to ignore the early nominating contests and has spent heavily on advertising, hoping to make a splash on “Super Tuesday” on March 3, when 14 states vote.Warren, who calls for an end to the “corruption” of Washington, lashed out against Bloomberg — but also Buttigieg — who has raised large sums from wealthy donors.”I don’t think anyone ought to be able to buy their way into a nomination or being president,” she said. “I don’t think any billionaire ought to be able to do it and I don’t think people who suck up to billionaires in order to fund their campaigns ought to be able to do it.”After New Hampshire, the candidates turn to Nevada on February 22, South Carolina on February 29 and then Super Tuesday.Topics : “I don’t have 40 billionaires, Pete, contributing to my campaign,” Sanders said.Buttigieg and Sanders finished atop the pack earlier this week in Iowa’s chaotic caucuses, and both hope to renew the performance Tuesday in New Hampshire, as the Democratic Party seeks to pick a challenger to Trump in November.But Sanders, a veteran senator calling for “political revolution,” was in the firing line from several rivals, including former vice president and fellow septuagenarian Joe Biden who branded his policies too radical to unite Americans.The 77-year-old Biden, fighting to keep his White House hopes alive after finishing an unnerving fourth in Iowa, insisted liberal policies like Sanders’s flagship universal health care plan would be too divisive, expensive and difficult to get through Congress. White House hopefuls Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg — riding neck-and-neck in the polls ahead of the next Democratic primary contest — come under sustained attack on the debate stage from rivals seeking to challenge Donald Trump in November.Buttigieg, a former mayor of South Bend, Indiana who at 38 is a fresh face on the national stage, defended himself against charges of inexperience and, in a dig at Sanders, urged Americans to elevate a nominee who will “leave the politics of the past in the past.”The 78-year-old leftist Sanders, eyeing the moderate Buttigieg as his possible chief adversary, aimed his own shots at his far younger rival in the Manchester, New Hampshire debate — casting him as the candidate of Wall Street.
Inside 33 Cribb St, Sadliers Crossing before the renovations.When the couple moved into the home three months later, they kicked off renovations straight away.“We lived with my parents while we did the major renovations – knocking out walls, putting in the new kitchen and bathrooms,” Mrs Bennett, 36, said.“I was pregnant with our second baby. We basically had 10 weeks to get the house liveable, on the inside, before he arrived. “We actually moved in the night before I was booked in to have Oscar. We didn’t even stay there the night.”Mrs Bennett said they had been looking for a house for “quite some time” in the Ipswich area. We knew we wanted to renovate, we knew we only wanted to stay in it for 12 months while I was on maternity leave, be close to my family, and we knew we wanted something with character,” she said.“We had seen a lot of homes that were already ‘renovated’ but we are extremely fussy and weren’t happy with the style or the workmanship.“We pride ourselves on our high end finishes and creative interior design when it comes to renovating. “When we saw this house, we knew automatically it had potential. It was a quaint cottage from the 1920s but unsure what story it was telling.” This Sadliers Crossing has been revamped inside and out. The property is being sold by RE/MAX Ignite’s Roxanne Workman for offers over $569,000. 33 Cribb St, Sadliers Crossing before the renovations. BUYERS LINE UP FOR DOOLEY SITE COTTAGE GOES FROM BLAH TO BRILLIANT The kitchen prior to renos. 33 Cribb St, Sadliers Crossing is on the market after a stunning renovation.The first night Stacey and Tim Bennett stayed at their Ipswich property was the night they brought their second baby home from hospital.Stacey, a teacher, and husband Tim ‘The Tool Man’ Bennett, a tradesman, bought 33 Cribb St, Sadliers Crossing in September 2018, and were keen to transform it into a stunning cross-gable bungalow. Mrs Bennett said inside the house, the kitchen and bathroom had no connection and the floorplan was disjointed – there was no flow. More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus10 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market10 hours ago“It was dark and the lighting needed to be brought into the 21st Century,” Mrs Bennett said.“Like most of the house, the flooring was mismatched and lacked continuity. We modernised the entrance and opened up the space creating a cathedral ceiling. “When you walk in now, there is a sense of opulence. Before, it was enclosed, dark and somewhat uninviting. “The kitchen was definitely functional however, it did not suit the style of the house. There was also no clearly defined lounge area. We have made the most of the space by removing walls and adding onto the back of the house.” Time taken: Just under 12 months Reno spend: $165,000 Before renos, the outside area of 33 Cribb St was hidden by trees and pot plants.Set on a massive 809sq m block, Mrs Bennett described the landscaping as “extremely cluttered and high maintenance”. “You would not believe that it was actually a large block of land – it was hidden by trees, pot plants and oh so many sandstone steppers, which we repurposed to create a cobblestone like path from the front gate to our front door,” Mrs Bennett said.“It took weekend upon weekend over many months to see the potential of the space. “We created gardens around the perimeter of the house and built a new white picket fence to replace the old chain link fence that had stood for many years prior.” The new kitchen at 33 Cribb St, Sadliers Crossing. Check out the spacious new bathroom.As with most projects, the biggest jobs were the kitchen and bathrooms, Mrs Bennett said.“They were the most expensive too. This was due to knocking out walls and expanding spaces to make the house feel larger, overall,” she said.Mrs Bennett said due to the age of the house, there had been a number of changes over the years. “The laundry was located down a set of internal concrete stairs. We decided to bring it up to the same level of the house and use some of the space as living/entertaining area,” she said.Tim worked closely with Mrs Bennett’s dad, an electrician with a broad knowledge in the industry after working in construction for 50 odd years. “They both get along well as they have the same work ethic and desire to complete a project to the best possible standard,” Mrs Bennett said.The couple are now selling their home to live between their Ipswich and Brisbane workplaces.

What is the motivation behind Nebraska’s visceral reaction to the Big Ten’s decision to cancel the 2020 college football season? That is the question one day after the final verdict was rendered, Nebraska offered a scathing response and Big Ten commissioner Kevin Warren told Yahoo Sports that the Huskers could not play college football in 2020 and still be considered a member of the Big Ten. MORE: There are questions around the 2020 Heisman, but no answers yetESPN analyst Desmond Howard, a Heisman Trophy winner at Michigan, piled on Wednesday on “Get Up” and said that Warren should demand an apology from Nebraska. “If I’m Kevin Warren right now, I’m working on a way to get their ass out of the Big Ten,” Howard said. [email protected] wants Nebraska out of the Big Ten. pic.twitter.com/uQWY26jVJI— Get Up (@GetUpESPN) August 12, 2020The problem is Husker Nation might want to do the same thing anyway. Is that the direction this could be headed in the near or distant future?That’s the question that will need answered soon. Nebraska coach Scott Frost announced those intentions in a press conference Monday before the Big Ten’s final decision. “We want to play no matter who it is or no matter where it is,” he said. “We’ll see how those chips fall. We certainly hope it’s in the Big Ten. If it isn’t, I think we’re prepared to look for other options.” To be fair, Ohio State coach Ryan Day made similar comments about exploring all options with athletic director Gene Smith on Wednesday. The Buckeyes also are the flagship of the Big Ten and have been a member since 1913. They aren’t going anywhere. It would be hard for Nebraska to make a move. As the Yahoo Sports report notes, leaving the Big Ten means losing a $50 million revenue share. The Huskers have played football in the conference since 2011, and from a financial standpoint that partnership has helped the program since it left the Big 12. So, what is that true motivation? Is it the financial hardship that would come from missing a season? As in, would Nebraska be willing to lose that $50 million to recover something in 2020 that would help sustain the program now? Scott Frost says #Nebraska estimates $80-120 million hit if there’s no football season. “The biggest factor is if we don’t play football, we’re not going to be able to pay for anything here until we start making money again.”— Adam Rittenberg (@ESPNRittenberg) August 10, 2020MORE: Big 12 football schedule for 2020Is that why the Huskers might entertain playing a rogue schedule within a 500-mile radius for one year? That is a chance worth taking only if it is beneficial to cut ties with the Big Ten for good. That seems like too much when everybody else in the conference is not playing. The back-and-forth speaks to what will be a strained relationship between Nebraska and the Big Ten — at least in the short term. In Howard’s laced criticism, he said that Nebraska does not have the same cachet as Notre Dame. That speaks to a Big Ten mindset that trickles down from Ohio State and Michigan and can be felt by new members. Remember, Michigan split that national title with Nebraska in 1997 when Frost was the Huskers’ quarterback. Penn State joined the conference in 1990. Maryland and Rutgers joined in 2014, three years after Nebraska. A cross-section of Big Ten fans would trade any three of those schools for Notre Dame in a heartbeat given the opportunity. So how does Nebraska really feel about the Big Ten in response? In nine seasons, Bo Pelini, Mike Riley and Frost have combined for a 65-50 record, with a 40-36 record in Big Ten play. That includes one Big Ten championship appearance, a 70-31 loss to Wisconsin in 2012. The Huskers do not play Ohio State, Michigan and Penn State every year and they have taken a backseat in the Big Ten West to Wisconsin, Iowa and, last year, Minnesota. In the nine seasons before that, Frank Solich, Bill Callahan and Pelini combined for a 73-44 record in the Big 12 with a 40-32 record in conference play. The Huskers made the Big 12 championship game three times in that stretch — where they lost to Oklahoma twice and Texas once. Would Nebraska be better off it went back to the Big 12? Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby fielded that question Wednesday. Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said Nebraska did not reach out at any point following the Big Ten decision.— Dean Straka (@DWStraka49) August 12, 2020That is the dilemma for a program that still is trying to tap back into the Tom Osborne heyday in the 1990s. Nebraska fans have no nostalgic feelings for the Big Ten, but that divorce with the Big 12 still stands. What is the next move? If I’m @HuskerFBNation, I say good riddance Big 10. Always been an odd fit. Love to see a return to the Big 12. And remember, NU has won more NC’s in the last quarter century than any other Big 10 team. Apologize for wanting to leave? As we say in Nebraska, go Husk yourself.— Lars Anderson (@LarsAnderson71) August 12, 2020No matter what happens, the Huskers must show they can play at a national championship level — whether in the Big Ten or the Big 12 — or they will run into the same problem in the future. You either deal with Texas and Oklahoma or Michigan and Ohio State. All four of those programs ranked in the top 10 in revenue in 2018-19, according to USA Today. Nebraska finished No. 21. We’ll find out what Nebraska’s true motivation is if it follows through with plans to continue playing football in 2020, but the end game comes with one resolution. Unless the Big 12 is waiting with open arms, then there is no reason not to comply with the Big Ten.

–30– ARCADIA, Calif. (June 27, 2015)–Heavily favored Masochistic fairly toyed with six rivals en route to a sensational 3 ½ length win in Saturday’s Grade I, $300,000 Triple Bend Stakes at Santa Anita. Ridden by Tyler Baze and trained by Ron Ellis, the 5-year-old California-bred gelding by Sought After cruised seven furlongs in 1:20.25.Breaking from post position five, Masochistic showed his customary zip from the gate but was soon joined to his inside by San Onofre, who with Alex Solis aboard, was sent to a narrow lead before being collared by the winner mid-way around the far turn.“He broke sharp and everything went perfect,” said Ellis, who took over training Masochistic prior to his most recent start, a three quarter length win in the Grade II Kona Gold Stakes on April 11. “It helped that we had the outside post. He’s just a super-talented horse and he’s learning to relax. That’s going to make him tough.”Off at even money, Masochistic paid $4.20, $3.20 and $2.80. The Triple Bend is his first Grade I win and his sixth overall victory from eight starts. Purchased privately by Los Pollos Hermanos and Jay Em Ess Stable following an allowance win two starts back on Feb. 28, Masochistic picked up $180,000 for the win, increasing his earnings to $523,850.“All I can say is ‘Awesome,’” said Baze. “He was unbelievable…Last time when I rode him, he was a little more aggressive, almost too aggressive,” said Baze. “His head has calmed down and he was very classy about everything today…I think he can go a mile, no problem.”Ridden by Joe Talamo, Appealing Tale finished second, 2 ¾ lengths in front of Wild Dude. Off at 12-1, Appealing Tale paid $9.60 and $7.00.Wild Dude was off at 9-1 with Flavien Prat aboard and paid $5.60 to show.Grade I winner Sahara Sky, who was the second choice at 5-2, lagged far back early as is his custom, but could do no better than fifth place while never threatening under Rafael Bejarano.Fractions on the race were 22.85, 45.16 and 1:08.10.
51; Linc-RNAs (large intervening non-coding RNAs) have been promoted from junk molecules to air traffic controllers. A mystery about these transcripts of DNA that are not translated into proteins is being explained. Science Daily reported on work at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) and the Broad Institute that found these RNA molecules perform a vital task. “linc-RNAs, once dismissed as ‘genomic junk’ – have a global role in genome regulation, ferrying proteins to assist their regulation at specific regions of the genome.” Results were published in the July 14 issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.“I like to think of them as genetic air traffic controllers,” explains co-senior author John Rinn, PhD, a Harvard Medical School Assistant Professor of Pathology at BIDMC and Associate Member of the Broad Institute. “It has long been a mystery as to how widely expressed proteins shape the fate of cells. How does the same protein know to regulate one genomic location in a brain cell and regulate a different genomic region in a liver cell? Our study suggests that in the same way that air traffic controllers organize planes in the air, lincRNAs may be organizing key chromatin complexes in the cell.”It has been known for some time that small RNA transcripts are involved in gene regulation, but link-RNAs are often thousands of base pairs long. The article said, “they seemed more like genomic oddities than key players” till now. “With these latest findings, which also uncovered an additional 1,500 lincRNAs, it’s clear these RNA molecules are no mere messengers – they have demonstrated that they can and do play a leading role.” Speaking of differences in brain cells and liver cells, another article on Science Daily smashed a paradigm: “DNA Not The Same In Every Cell Of Body: Major Genetic Differences Between Blood And Tissue Cells Revealed.” A discovery by Montreal scientists “calls into question one of the most basic assumptions of human genetics: that when it comes to DNA, every cell in the body is essentially identical to every other cell.” It appears that biologists and geneticists are finding new complexities in the way genes are distributed and regulated in body cells. The discoveries may lead to better understanding of the factors that make cells in various tissues look and behave differently.Neither of these articles needed evolutionary theory. When the trend in scientific discovery is to uncover more and more complexity, regulation, and function such that air traffic control is the analogy that comes to mind, intelligent design “leaps up as the most likely explanation,” as Jonathan Wells put it. Pilot Charlie, preferring unguided processes, appears headed for a nose dive.(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
