Enter Your Email Address Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares If there’s ever been a time to invest in FTSE 100 stocks, it’s now. I know this sounds counter-intuitive when a stock market crash is underway. Stock markets can be volatile at such times since the index is super sensitive to incoming news and analysis. As information about gloom and doom piles up, it’s easy to put off investing for a later date. This is especially true if I’m just about to start investing. But what if I know exactly what I’m looking for in the newsflow? Would it still look as daunting? Perhaps not. Not each piece of incoming information will impact share prices, not in the long run, even if it appears important during the stock market crash. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Look out for the verifiable upside despite the stock market crashAnd that, for me, is the key point to remember when I start by investing £500. The question that arises now is, how do I figure out key information from the sea of stock market crash stories? Despite all the grim stories around us, there are still reports to the contrary. I’m looking for these ones. An example is the news piece I read yesterday about the FTSE 100 pharmaceuticals giant AstraZeneca, which is starting clinical trials of its Covid-19 treatment soon. It is best if the news is straight from the company itself.Only time will tell whether or not AstraZeneca’s treatment is a success. But as things stand, it’s a positive for the company. Not only is AZN looking for a cure for a disease that’s brought the world to its knees, it could add to its credentials as well. AZN is already a highly valued pharmaceutical company, with a meteoric price-to-earning ratio of 74 times, despite the stock market crash. I think it might be expensive, but I’d like to consider it as a possible investment. Another example is the FTSE 100 low-cost airline easyJet. There’s much information available on its troubled situation. But more recently, it appears that it may well come through the Covid-19 crisis and stock market crash. Based on this, I’d look for further news on the stock if I’m still undecided about whether to invest in it or not. Not all positives mean somethingI’d focus on positive news flow, but consider it with care. Not all positive developments in a stock market crash will necessarily amount to long-term gains. Consider the examples of online grocery delivery providers like Ocado or even brick-and-mortar grocers like Tesco and J Sainsbury.Panic buying and the lockdown temporarily increased their sales in mid-March, but they decreased sharply in the next 10 days, according to Lloyds Bank research. If the recession is as stark as forecasts indicate, discretionary spending will fall. This can hit grocers as well. In short, I’m looking for positives pertaining to FTSE 100 companies when I start investing my first £500. Among these, I like those that give insight into long-term potential. These, I think, can be a good starting point to ensure my capital grows despite the stock market crash. Don’t waste the stock market crash!

To the Editor:Everyone should know about and oppose the almost secret plan by state DEP Commissioner Bob Martin to create a second marina at Liberty State Park. Apparently, the Commissioner plans to sign a lease with the operators of the existing marina to create a second marina along the Southern part of the park without public hearings and without the consideration of the next governor. Commissioner Martin should be urged to abandon the plan which will disturb the natural habitat alive with various seabirds and water fowl, walkways with unobstructed views, and a safe place for kayaking with manageable boat traffic. He should at least delay the project until the next governor takes office. Douglas Fleisher
[Photo courtesy of Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe’s Facebook page] Shakedown Street On Thursday, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe took to San Rafael, California, performing at Phil Lesh’s iconic venue, Terrapin Crossroads, kicking off a West Coast run, which saw the funk ensemble hit Crystal Bay, Nevada last night and will see them perform at the Oregon County Fair in Veneta, Oregon, today. For their performance at the Grate Room in Terrapin Crossroads on Thursday, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe was joined by none other than the Grateful Dead bassist himself, Mr. Phil Lesh. Lesh sat in for two classic Grateful Dead numbers—”Viola Lee Blues” and “Shakedown Street”—in addition to a cover of the Rolling Stones’ “Live With Me” during the performance.Phil Lesh, Robert Randolph, Karl Denson, & More Open Weekend At The Cap With The Preservation Hall Jazz Band [Videos]The collaboration was not completely out of left field for Denson and his group. When Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe performed at Terrapin Crossroads in September of last year, Phil Lesh similarly sat in for the group’s rendition of “Shakedown Street.” Additionally, Denson and Lesh have a regular history of performing with one another, with the multi-instrumentalist who leads the Tiny Universe most recently performing with Phil Lesh & Friends during the ensemble’s two-night Capitol Theatre run at the end of May in addition to Robert Randolph, Jackie Greene, Neal Casal, Ross James, Jason Crosby, Tony Leone, Alex Koford, and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.Phil & Friends Close The Cap Run With Memorable Show Dedicated To Gregg Allman [Videos]You can watch clips from Phil Lesh’s collaboration with Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe below, which were posted to the group’s Facebook page earlier in the week.Viola Lee Blues
By Mark GleesonADDIS ABABA, (Reuters) – African soccer faces an uncertain future after Confederation of African Football (CAF) president Issa Hayatou was swept from power and a raft of new officials were voted into powerful positions.New president Ahmad promised widespread consultation as he seeks to make the game more inclusive after his shock presidential victory on Thursday at the CAF Congress.“We need to be open to discussion again and open to advice on how to improve. We want to talk to Africa’s top players to see how we can run the game better. We want anyone with a love for football and ideas on how to improve the game to feel they can come and discuss this with us,” Ahmad said yesterday.On a day of seismic shock for the African game, Hayatou was deposed after 29 years and replaced by the unknown Malagasy, who has served as sports and fisheries minister in his native Madagascar but only as a CAF executive for the last four years.The diminutive Ahmad, 57, initially looked as bewildered as his predecessor after the result of the vote handed him an upset 35-20 victory in a clear repudiation of Hayatou’s long-standing rule.But Ahmad quickly flexed new-found muscle as he persuaded delegates at the CAF Congress to overrule Hayatou, who continued to chair the rest of the meeting despite his election defeat, and postpone important votes on the appointment of independent auditing and oversight structures.Also left over were changes to the confederation’s statutes that had been requested by FIFA, but did not receive a two-thirds majority from a rebellious Congress.If the drastic changes at FIFA where a raft of senior staff have been removed since Gianni Infantino was elected last February are any indication to go by, CAF’s administration in Cairo is also set for a shake-up.Its new-look executive committee has little experience after Hayatou’s allies were summarily removed in elections that followed his own dramatic fall.Infantino called for support for the new CAF president after witnessing Thursday’s coup.“Now that the elections are over, everyone should be focusing on a bright future for African football,” he told reporters at the end of the Congress.
Atletico MadridKampala, Uganda | XINHUA | Atletico Madrid confirmed on Sunday evening that two members due to travel to Lisbon on Monday for the quarterfinals of the Champions League had tested positive for coronavirus.The club did not confirm whether the positives are among its players or technical staff in an official statement, which explains that according to UEFA protocol every member of the expedition to Lisbon for the final phase of this season’s Champions League underwent a PCR test for COVID-19 on Saturday.“Among the results which were known today (Sunday), two people tested positive, and they are currently under isolation in their respective homes,” explained Atletico, adding that the positive tests were “immediately communicated to the respective Spanish and Portuguese health authorities, UEFA, the Spanish Football Federation, the Portuguese Federation and the Spanish Superior Sports Committee.”The club adds that it has also applied the appropriate protocols for such a situation, with a new round of PCR tests for everyone due to travel to Lisbon, explaining that consequently “training times and the structure and form of the trip and stay in the Portuguese capital” will change. Atletico are due to play RB Leipzig in their quarterfinal tie on August 13.****XINHUAShare on: WhatsApp

A LETTERKENNY man has been given a prison sentence after appearing on court on charged connected with two separate incidents.Boyle was before the Court charged with criminal damage and of theft. Keith Boyle (22) of 11 Derryveagh Avenue, Letterkenny appeared at a sitting of Letterkenny District Court over an incident at 13 Burnside, Letterkenny on October 16, 2017.Sergeant Jim Collins said Gardaí received report of criminal damage at Burnside. Boyle refused to leave the apartment and the woman was ‘distressed and crying’.Boyle, the court heard had called the woman ‘a rat’ and punched the 42-inch television, smashing the screen.Boyle was also charged over an incident on August 13, 2018.Staff at the Glencar Inn reported that Boyle had entered the off licence at the premises and stole a case of Bulmers and a bottle of Druids cider. After a member of staff attempted to stop Boyle, he dropped the Bulmers and left in a taxi. Last week, Boyle was given a two-and-a-half year sentence, with the last year suspended, at Letterkenny Circuit Court, where he appeared on charges of assault causing harm and making off without payment. Mr Kieran O’Gorman, solicitor for Boyle, said his client allowed himself to be involved in ‘the most ridiculous and silly situations’.“Every problem has been related to drink, but he wants to try and move forward,” Mr O’Gorman said.Judge Paul Kelly imposed a total of four months imprisonment on Boyle.Prison for Letterkenny man involved in ‘ridiculous and silly situations’ was last modified: November 6th, 2019 by Chris McNultyShare 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:Keith BoyleKIeran O’GormanletterkennyLetterkenny District Court

The film replays the Miller experiment with its problems. Alternative explanations like panspermia are also explored and rejected, leading to a clear conclusion that life had to be intelligently designed.

It would be more accurate to say that the greater part of the entire chain is missing.” And the first link, by far the most important link, the one between non-life and life, is also missing. Will these gaps be filled in someday? Standen concludes that they will not, and so far he has been proved correct almost 70 years later. Nonetheless, he notes that evolutionists have an “unshakeable faith in what science is going to do some day.” The new study reviewed here is a very good example.The Amino Acid ConundrumCredit: Illustra Media, Origin.This new study, published in Nature‘s open-access journal Scientific Reports, not only hurts their cause, but it helps support the creationist case. As is well documented, “All life, from bacteria to blue whales to human beings, uses an almost universal set of 20 coded amino acids (CAAs) to construct proteins.” The exceptions include minor variations in certain bacteria that use two other amino acid types. Furthermore, “it has so far not been proven possible to construct an organism that can survive with less than the 20 CAAs in its total proteome. This means, for a cell to be alive, it must have all 20 coded amino acids. The probability for this to occur by chance, as discussed below, is essentially zero.In other words, to obtain the required sets by chance, for all intents and purposes, is impossible. A review of the study in Science Daily, titled “Scientists find biology’s optimal ‘molecular alphabet’ may be preordained,” attempts to explain by chance the origin of the genetic code that assembles amino acids as part of the process of manufacturing functional proteins. As noted, life uses 20 coded amino acids, called the CAA. The study by Ilardo et al. researching these 20 amino acids found that there existmillions of possible types of amino acids that could be found on Earth or elsewhere in the Universe, each with its own distinctive chemical properties. Indeed, scientists have found these unique chemical properties are what give biological proteins, the large molecules that do much of life’s catalysis, their own unique capabilities. The team had previously measured how life uses the 20 coded amino acids CAA set compared to random sets of amino acids and found that only about 1 in a billion random sets had chemical properties as unusually distributed as those of the CAAs.This study also shows the origin of life by abiogenesis is even more improbable than believed before this study. The one-in-a-billion odds, for all practical purposes, translates to impossible. Life’s kit of amino acids must have been functional since the beginning, and stable throughout the history of life. Creationists explain biology’s optimal “molecular alphabet” as due to intelligent design and foresight. They reason that the universal biological language was part of a deliberate purposeful design for all life.Natural Selection No HelpEvolutionists try to get around this by postulating that natural selection very early in evolution selected out (eliminated) all but 20 amino acids – the very ones that are all fine-tuned to produce life. All life is descended from that original finely-tuned set; therefore, this is the reason why the code is close to universal. It sounds plausible on the surface. The problem with this explanation is that it totally lacks scientific evidence. All living organisms use the same code with only very rare and minor exceptions, as noted. Some evolutionary explanations sound almost mystical, as if amino acids were lab scientists seeking to discover the best set:Life uses 20 coded amino acids (CAAs) to construct proteins. This set was likely evolutionarily ‘standardized’ from smaller sets as organisms discovered how to make and encode them. Scientists modeled how the adaptive properties of the CAAs evolved over time. They found that sets containing even only a few CAAs were better than an enormous choice of alternatives, suggesting each time a modern CAA was discovered, it bootstrapped the set to include still more CAAs.The problem with this anthropomorphic explanation is modern amino acids are not discovered by a cell. They must all be present in the cell from the beginning. Moreover, all 20 must exist in the necessary amounts, and must function well enough for life to successfully reproduce. No life-form can survive without a complete set of the right number of amino acids. As Cooper notes, “all cells share common fundamental properties … all cells employ DNA as their genetic material, are surrounded by plasma membranes, and use the same mechanisms for energy metabolism.” As will be explained in the next section, this fact creates a major problem for evolution.How the Code is Speculated to Have EvolvedAnother evolutionary hypothesis sounds like a horse race. Several codes evolved, they say, and one set won out in the competition for survival – namely, the code set we see today. The problem with this hypothesis is that the evolution of even one code set is so improbable that two or more is well out of the range of probability. The research reviewed here concluded thatthe possible ways of making a set of 3-20 amino acids using a special library of 1913 structurally diverse ‘virtual’ amino acids … found there are 1048 ways of making sets of 20 amino acids. In contrast, there are only ~ 1019 grains of sand on Earth, and only ~ 1024 stars in the entire Universe.Time No HelpTime is no help here. If the code set consists of useless chemicals without the entire functional mechanism required to orderly assemble both the code and the other parts of the system, such as Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA), they will be degraded rapidly. If the primordial cell has no recycling system, it could not survive for long. Nonfunctional amino acids are worse than useless, additionally, and will also be rapidly degraded without a mechanism to convert the DNA code into amino acid “polypeptides” (chains), which is what the complex assembly machine called a ribosome does.Likewise, this system is also useless unless a folding mechanism system exists. Chains of amino acids must fold to be functional. They are often assisted by complex molecular machines called chaperonins. But a folding system is useless without other molecular machines, such as kinesin motors, that move the folded proteins to where they are needed in the cell. And all of these parts are useless without being organized and protected by a container—a membrane—to keep toxins from getting in, while permitting vital minerals to enter: water, oxygen and some 20 elements, such as calcium, phosphorus, chromium, zinc, sulfur and magnesium.Panspermia No HelpEach one of these protein-manufacturing parts are not only improbable but will be degraded rapidly. They will only be protected and functional only as a set. For these and other reasons, the spontaneous generation of a living cell is essentially impossible. That is why the co-discoverer of DNA, Francis Crick, proposed the outlandish solution that the first cell came from outer space, a theory he called Directed Panspermia. Crick and his co-author, origin-of-life researcher Leslie Orgel, proposed this Directed Panspermia view as a plausible alternative that, they argued, should be taken seriously. This alternative, however, only moves the problem elsewhere; it does not solve it. Although enthusiastically supported for several years, Directed Panspermia is now rarely talked about anymore. Darwinists openly admit that natural selection cannot work at all until a complete functional cell exists that can reproduce itself accurately. Thus, in view of the above, note the problematic claim that these 20 CAAs were likely“canonicalized” or standardized during early evolution; before this, smaller amino acid sets were gradually expanded as organisms developed new synthetic proofreading and coding abilities. The new study… explored how this set evolution might have occurred.As one leading textbook admits: “It appears that life first emerged at least 3.8 billion years ago, approximately 750 million years after Earth was formed. How life originated and how the first cell came into being are matters of speculation, since these events cannot be reproduced in the laboratory.” The author, Geoffrey M. Cooper, is a research scientist and administrator at Harvard Medical School. Cooper then, in a vain effort to help his cause, repeats the Stanley Miller boilerplate and other standard fare based on imagination and hope. Endless speculation against all probability does not help the evolutionists’ cause; in fact, the observable scientific data actually hurts it.ConclusionThe new study about canonical amino acids, and how optimal they are from the beginning, adds to many others that have documented the impossibility of life from nonliving chemicals. A secular view of the origin of life has been recognized as improbable to impossible for decades, and this new research has only supported that early realization. Future research will undoubtedly continue to come to the same conclusion. As the co-discoverer of DNA, Francis Crick, said, the origin of life is “one of the great unsolved mysteries of science.” Time has only made it a greater unsolved mystery of science than when Crick wrote this.References Standen, Anthony. 1950.
