British and Irish Lions bounce back against Maori All Blacks

first_imgSunday Jun 18, 2017 British and Irish Lions bounce back against Maori All Blacks The British and Irish Lions bounced back from defeat to the Highlanders by putting in a strong performance for a 32-10 win over the Maori All Blacks a week out from the first Test. A penalty try and Maro Itoje score helped them to the win. Fullback Leigh Halfpenny also kicked six penalties and a conversion, while the Maori team scored a lone try through Liam Messam, after Nehe Milner-Skudder imposed himself on the game and George North made a clumsy error.The Lions forwards had the majority of possession and ultimately controlled proceedings.“It’s important for our momentum, our confidence,” said Lions captain Peter O’Mahony. “You don’t want to be going into a game against the All Blacks with losses under our belt. This win goes a long way to building what we want to build.”The next fixture for the touring Lions is against the Chiefs on Tuesday.View a short highlights wrap here, or an extended (19:38) version below thatEXTENDED HIGHLIGHTS:credit: allblacks/hotstopkidADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error British & Irish Lions 2017 Related Articles 195 WEEKS AGO The 2017 Lions tour documentary looks epic… 203 WEEKS AGO The Impact of British and Irish Lions Tours… 204 WEEKS AGO Jordie Barrett’s casual booming dropgoal… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

JPL Scientists Honored by California for Drought Work

first_img JPL scientists Cathleen Jones and Tom Farr. Not pictured: Zhen Liu. Photo courtesy JPLThe California Department of Water Resources (DWR) Tuesday named three scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, as recipients of its Remote Sensing and Drought Science Service award. The award recognizes ongoing assistance provided by researchers who have been working closely with the department on drought or climate science projects.JPL scientists Tom Farr, Cathleen Jones and Zhen Liu received the honor at a Water Operations briefing sponsored by DWR and the Water Education Foundation in Sacramento. The researchers used interferometric synthetic aperture radar data from Japanese and Canadian satellites and airborne data from NASA’s Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Synthetic Aperture Radar (UAVSAR) instrument to map the ongoing sinking of land in California’s San Joaquin Valley caused by groundwater extraction. Drought-related surface water shortages have led to increased groundwater pumping and record low groundwater levels in the region. The scientists’ work found that some parts of the valley sank more than a foot during the 2014 irrigation season alone.“We were impressed by the ability to see the monthly progression of summer land surface deformation in response to irrigation water demands,” said DWR Interstate Resources Manager Jeanine Jones. Use of innovative high-resolution aircraft-based monitoring was also able to detect this rapid increase in subsidence directly along the California Aqueduct. NASA is currently processing 2015 land subsidence data for DWR.“DWR is pleased to recognize the work that these scientists have performed in developing new methodologies for monitoring land subsidence in response to our multi-year drought,” said DWR Director Mark Cowin. “We appreciate the time they have invested in developing the productive working relationship that has allowed us to collaborate in applying remote sensing to monitor land subsidence that can impact critical water infrastructure.”“Connecting NASA scientists to society’s decision makers is essential to successfully using NASA Earth observations and science to improve water management decisions,” said Brad Doorn, program manager in Applied Sciences at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “These JPL scientists are great examples for us all, as they are not only connecting with California’s water resource management agencies, but they are bringing NASA data to bear on the state’s critical information needs.”NASA uses the vantage point of space to increase our understanding of our home planet, improve lives and safeguard our future. NASA develops new ways to observe and study Earth’s interconnected natural systems with long-term data records. The agency freely shares this unique knowledge and works with institutions around the world to gain new insights into how our planet is changing.For more information on the scientists’ research, visit:http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news.php?feature=4693For more information about NASA’s Earth science activities, visit:http://www.nasa.gov/earth Your email address will not be published.

PHS students tackling biomedical science

Home Local News Education PHS students tackling biomedical science WhatsApp OCA top 2 were ESL students Noel earns award Registration set for engineering camp PLTW Biomedical ScienceThrough a combination of forensics and the study of disease, students in Chet Cooper’s principles of biomedicine class at Permian High School are absorbing the possibility of a variety of medical careers.Cooper, a former Odessa College professor in his first high school teaching assignment, said the course starts off with a crime scene so students can learn how to investigate a crime scene.“… The whole year, we use the death of our patient Anna Garcia or the death of a person Anna Garcia, to investigate the different systems in the body and different diseases …,” Cooper said.Students then study diabetes, sickle cell disease, heart disease, infectious diseases and the postmortem. 1 of 2 Chet Cooper, center, helps his 11th grade student Alek Ahrlett during Principles of Biomedical Science Thursday morning at Permian High School. “Through each of these they get a little bit more of the puzzle. They learn to read medical reports and autopsy reports,” Cooper said.Using a hands-on, project-based learning approach, the online curriculum lets students participate in activities and projects and solve problems. Many studies have shown hands-on learning helps students retain knowledge on a deeper level than just memorization.“As the curriculum advances, and even in this first year, some of the problems that they solve are pretty intricate,” Cooper said.A project would be doing a lab on how body temperature changes after death and a problem would be for students to explain something like diabetes and build a model to show how that works, he added.Cooper’s class is a mixture of freshmen, sophomores and juniors.Brittny Deanda and Kali Chesnut, both 16-year-old sophomores, and 14-year-old freshman Jerry Gillian are all leaning toward the medical profession.“I thought it would be a really good opportunity because I’ve always wanted to be in the medical field,” Chesnut said. “I think it’s I’ve learned a bunch of stuff that I never knew. I think it was a really good experience for me.”Executive Director of Career and Counseling Services Carla Byrne said the district is excited to offer Project Lead the Way Biomedical Science.“We could not do it were it not for the very generous funds provided to us by Chevron. We do hope to eventually open the program up to Odessa High School, but this will depend on our annual funding,” Byrne said in an email.“Currently, students at PHS are enrolled in the first of four courses, Principles of Biomedical Science. Next year, students move to the second year course, which is Human Body Systems. Each year, with the help of funding from Chevron, we will be able to open the next course until we have all four courses up and running.“The third-year course is Medical Interventions and the capstone course is Biomedical Innovations. This is a rigorous program that blends health care and engineering. These students could be our future doctors and scientists who could potentially create a solution to a medical anomaly. We are so fortunate to have this program and we can’t wait to see each year’s course unfold,” Byrne wrote.

Parents of 545 kids separated at border still haven’t been found: ACLU

first_imgsabther/iStockBy LAUREN LANTRY, ABC News(WASHINGTON) — The American Civil Liberties Union said in a court filing submitted on Tuesday that they have been unable to contact parents of 545 children who were separated at the border by the Trump administration, leaving the children living with sponsors throughout the United States.“We haven’t found all the families,” Lee Gelernt of the ACLU told ABC News’ Chief National Affairs Correspondent Tom Llamas. “We are still searching for approximately 545 families that we haven’t reached the parent.”Soon after taking office, President Donald Trump imposed a crackdown on families seeking asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border that ultimately led to thousands of family separations. Children were placed in shelters, often unaware of what was happening to their parents, who were detained and likely deported.While the government eventually placed the children with sponsors, a federal judge ordered the government to track the whereabouts of the parents — a difficult task because the government failed to adequately track the families in the first place, according to a government watchdog office.Gelernt said that close to 5,500 families were separated.“Each one of these children is its own story,” Gelernt said. “And those stories are absolutely heartbreaking.”“One 4-year-old from Honduras had glasses,” he continued, telling the story of one family. “The boy’s parents had been able to get him a case to protect the glasses.” Gelernt said the “glasses case became the most important thing in their life because they knew if the glasses broke, they might not be able to get him another pair.”When the boy was separated from his mother, he had his glasses, but he didn’t have the case.“All day long, all the mother thought about was, ‘Can my little boy see?’” Gelernt said.The ACLU and other groups sued the Trump administration over the practice of separating families. The court filing is a part of the ongoing effort to reunite the families that were separated. But the reunification process has often been unsuccessful due to the government’s poor tracking system.A court-appointed “steering committee” has tried to locate the families of 1,030 children. Court documents estimate that approximately two-thirds of the parents are believed to be in their “respective countries of origin.”But Chad Jennings, a Department of Homeland Security spokesperson, said DHS, Customs and Border Protection, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Department of Health and Human Services have “taken every step to facilitate the reunification of these families where parents wanted such reunification to occur.”“The simple fact is this: after contact has been made with the parents to reunite them with their children, many parents have refused,” Jennings said in a statement provided to ABC News. “In the current litigation, for example, out of the parents of 485 children whom Plaintiffs’ counsel has been able to contact, they have yet to identify a single family that wants their child reunited with them in their country of origin. The result is that the children remain in the U.S. while the parents remain in their home country.”In line with DHS, White House deputy press secretary Brian Morgenstern said the administration has “done everything we can to bring these families together.”“It’s very sad, the administration wants the families to be reunited, but for various reasons the families just have not accepted the children back in many of these cases,” Morgenstern said.In response, Gelernt referred back to the court document that says that the steering committee has “not yet reached the separated parents” of the 545 children.“We have not even found these 545 parents so neither we nor certainly the administration can know whether they want to be reunited,” Gelernt told ABC News.Ahead of Thursday’s presidential debate, Vice President Joe Biden released a statement calling the reports “an outrage, a moral failing, and a stain on our national character,” adding that the principle that “families belong together” will be at the “core” of his immigration policy if he is elected in November.Biden has pledged to create a path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented individuals living in the United States.The judge ruling over the case has scheduled a hearing for Thursday.“The child doesn’t know whether they’ll ever see their parent again,” Gelernt said, adding that the separation of these families is both historic and can never be forgotten.“This can never be repeated again.”ABC News’ Johnny Verhovek, Bonnie McLean, Victoria Moll Ramirez, Anne Flaherty and Luke Barr contributed to this report.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
