TOURISM BOOST FOR DONEGAL AS TOP CHINESE JOURNALISTS FLOWN INTO COUNTY

first_imgJournalists Effie Jia, Iris Deng, Yuanyue Bi and Wang Ting with Xin Wang, Tourism Ireland (second right), and tour guide Min Lin Siew (right), at the Slieve League Cliffs, Co Donegal.Pic – John McConnellHOTEL staff in Donegal may have to start brushing up on their Mandarin – tourism chiefs have targeted the China to help boost the number of visitors to the county.Four Chinese journalists have been visiting Donegal as guests of Tourism Ireland.The group includes a blogger, a travel photographer whose work has appeared in National Geographic and Lonely Planet, as well as two magazine journalists from China. They are here to experience at first-hand some of the many things to see and do in Ireland for features stories they will write when they return home.The journalists’ itinerary, designed by Fáilte Ireland, included visits to Dublin Castle and the ID2015 Design Hub, Trinity College and the Book of Kells and the Guinness Storehouse.Then it was on to Donegal, where the group took on a guided walk of the Slieve League cliffs and visits to Donegal Castle and Glenveagh Castle and Gardens.Amanda Burns, Tourism Ireland’s manager for Asia, said: “China is an important emerging travel market and one that Tourism Ireland is committed to growing over the coming years. The aim of this fact-finding visit is to increase awareness of the island of Ireland.” Mayor Ciaran Brogan welcomed the boost.“It’s fair to say a few years ago Donegal would not have been on the map when it came to tourism initiatives like this but now Tourism Ireland are really helping to push the real Ireland to overseas visitors,” said Cllr Brogan.“The Wild Atlantic Way is certainly helping and we know we could create many more jobs here if the council is given more funding to help develop the route further.”Cllr Brogan at the launch of the viewing point at Cnoc Fola last weekTOURISM BOOST FOR DONEGAL AS TOP CHINESE JOURNALISTS FLOWN INTO COUNTY was last modified: September 26th, 2015 by John2Share 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:donegalNumbersTourism IrelandVisitorslast_img read more

All you need to know about the player Man United could sign ahead of Pogba

first_imgFootball statistics experts WhoScored.com assess the merits of Manchester United making a move for Monaco defender Fabinho. Read all about it, below, then check out WhoScored’s Man United stats page.Much of Manchester United’s summer dealings have been dominated by the arrival of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. A world record deal to re-sign Paul Pogba is now the priority but their business doesn’t look set to finish there. Eric Bailly joined as Jose Mourinho’s first signing as United manager and it could be another defender that concludes their business before the new season starts next month.Understandably lost in the media coverage of United’s pursuit of Pogba, Mourinho’s side are also reportedly plotting a £25m move for Monaco’s versatile right-back Fabinho. Despite boasting the joint-best defensive record in the Premier League last season (35 goals conceded), their defence has been a cause for concern. Bailly’s arrival has seemingly put an end to Daley Blind’s spell at centre-back, while signing Fabinho would mark United’s latest attempt at resolving an issue they’ve had at right-back since Gary Neville retired in 2011. Matteo Darmian was last season’s solution but his own future is up in the air following an unconvincing debut campaign, while Antonio Valencia and Phil Jones are simply not right-backs. Instead, Mourinho has reportedly earmarked Fabinho as a potential target to complete what has already been a sensational window for the Red Devils. Given the type of defenders Mourinho has gravitated towards during his career, it is no surprise that at 6ft 2in, Fabinho has caught the eye of the United manager. Mourinho would have also caught glimpses of Fabinho during the 12 months he spent on loan with the Madrid Castilla squad in the 2012/13 campaign during Mourinho’s final year as Madrid manager. Fabinho even earned his only appearance for the senior team in one of Mourinho’s final games in charge, registering an assist in a 14-minute cameo during Madrid’s 6-2 win over Malaga.The European champions opted against keeping the then teenager before Claudio Ranieri’s Monaco swooped. The 22-year-old has gone from strength-to-strength ever since. No current Monaco player has secured a higher WhoScored.com rating over the last two Ligue 1 campaigns than Fabinho (7.4). With age and experience, Fabinho’s all-round performances have significantly improved. Fabinho has always presented a threat going forward but his end-product in the final third was often found wanting in his first two years at Monaco. The fact he failed to register a single assist in the league during that time would suggest the criticism was well placed. However, last season Fabinho played a direct hand in 10 league goals (six goals, four assists), with half of those coming in his 18 appearances at right-back.Getting forward and supporting attacks also means that Fabinho attracts fouls. Only Bernando Silva (77) was fouled more times for Monaco in the league last season and Fabinho’s physical prowess would also add another dimension to United’s attack. With Chris Smalling the only player that offered any serious aerial threat, only Stoke (6) scored fewer goals from set-pieces than United (7) in the Premier League last season. It’s an area where United need to significantly improve and something Fabinho could contribute towards.While Fabinho’s blistering runs forward may be one of his most eye-catching qualities, the Brazil international is extremely diligent in his duties at the back. He has completed more tackles and interceptions combined than any other Monaco player in the last three years (483), accentuating his statistically calculated WhoScored.com strengths of ‘tackling’ and ‘concentration’. Not only that but he has also won possession more times in the defensive third than any other teammate (282).There is also another common denominator between Mourinho and Fabinho in that both are represented by Jorge Mendes, an agent United are already very much in bed with. United are yet to do business with Mendes this summer, but that could all be about to change. 1 Fabinho in action for Monaco against Crystal Palace last_img read more

Cosmology Goes Off the Reservation

first_imgIf science were ever restricted to observation, experimental demonstration, and evidence, some cosmologists left that reservation far behind long ago.  Being smart does not preclude going nutty.Disembodied brains:  If the multiverse exists, there should be more disembodied intelligences than human brains, says creator of PreposterousUniverse.com, Sean Carroll of Caltech.  New Scientist says that in a multiverse, “Boltzmann brains” are just as likely to pop into existence from quantum fluctuations as other entities.  Since most brains look human, maybe the multiverse is wrong.  The multiverse might be rescued, though, by Everett’s old “many-worlds hypothesis” that postulates new universes splitting off endlessly to fulfill every possible outcome of quantum events.  “Maybe Hitler won the second world war in a different universe,” Carroll speculates.  What do other cosmologists think of this reasoning?  Seth Lloyd: “I believe they fail the Monty Python test: Stop that! That’s too silly!”  Scott Aaronson of MIT: “It sounds like something a bunch of college sophomores would discuss while high. It doesn’t sound like a real scientific problem.”Keeping time in the right direction:  The “thermodynamic arrow of time” is a frequent topic in cosmology and philosophy.  Theoretically the laws of physics would allow time to flow backward, but we never observe that.  The same Sean Carroll mentioned above is one of the latest who, since Boltzmann, using his own human brain, tried to preserve the symmetry of time by postulating other parts of reality where time would flow backward.  Presumably, in such locales, persons would proceed from old age to birth.  A new paper on arXiv mentioned by PhysOrg tries to rationalize the one-way arrow of time by the way memories work.  “The reason we can’t remember future events is because we have faulty memories,” the article says.  This seems to be begging the question of why memories need be faulty in only one time direction.  Perhaps insight could be gained with palindrome games.  Even more quizzical is whether meanings would be inverted by going backward.  Consider reverse poetry that conveys opposite meanings depending on whether it is read forward or backward.The dark arts:  A sober-looking group of cosmologists at Max Planck Institute is worrying over the results of their divination: computer models of the early universe.  They are trying to bring their models into conformity with the observations of mature galaxies near the beginning.  Along with the mystical spider eyes and bat wings of computer code, they pitch in dark matter, a “strange substance” required to keep galaxies together.  Next, they “want to expand their computer simulations even further” in order “to get a step closer to the mystery of dark energy.”  But do these strange substances even exist?Phantom quest:  A press release from HZDR says that one dark matter candidate—the U Boson—can be crossed off the list, thanks to negative results by the HADES experiment.  (The U Boson is sometimes paradoxically dubbed the “dark photon“).  But how can cosmologists postulate 95% of reality by observing just 5% of it?  “Although Dark Energy and Dark Matter appear to constitute over 95 percent of the universe, nobody knows of which particles they are made up,” the article begins.  Dark matter is not even needed, physicist Mordehai Milgrom told New Scientist.  Just abandon the notion, and use his Modified Newtonian Mechanics (MOND) instead.If you can’t lick the zanies, join them:  In their headline on The Conversation, Luke Barnes and Geraint Lewis ask the question readers are surely asking at this point: “Have cosmologists lost their minds in the multiverse?”  Hoping for a breath of sanity, the reader waits in vain for a scientific rejection of this trendy speculation that is unobservable even in principle (thus unscientific in principle).  The hope dies right near the beginning in the childish lingo: “The multiverse theory is that our universe is but one of a vast, variegated ensemble of other universes. We don’t know how many pieces there are to the multiverse but estimates suggest there many [sic] be squillions of them.”  Bouncing off the BICEP2 claims (currently under scrutiny), they agree that other universes are unobservable in principle, but then say this: “In some versions of inflation, the process that causes our universe to inflate is expected to produce huge numbers of other universes. Evidence for inflation isn’t exactly direct evidence for the multiverse, but it’s a start.”  But what if the BICEP2 evidence gets debunked this fall?  (5/12/14)  Will that falsify the multiverse idea?  Not likely, given their unfeigned faith in the unobservable.  Then, in a weird leap of logic, they consider our existence in a life-friendly world as evidence for a multiverse.  Why?  Because if it is so unlikely in one universe, maybe it is less unlikely in “squillions” of them:The multiverse can handle this. The probability of observing a particular type of universe depends on that universe first creating observers. We are not just passive observers, setting up our equipment and taking measurements of the universe at our leisure. We are products of this universe.While universes with observers may be highly unusual in the entire multiverse, they will obviously be the norm for observed universes. And so, the life-permitting nature of our universe can be counted as a successful prediction of the multiverse. (Prediction in the logical, rather than chronological sense.)They even use the absence of Boltzmann brains as evidence for the multiverse!  “At the moment, there are too many ifs and maybes in this story,” they admit in the end.  They admit that the BICEP2 results do not necessarily support inflation, and that inflation does not necessarily support a multiverse.  They admit that “theories struggle to predict anything, so clearly there is much much more to be done.”  But they don’t need evidence, predictions, or any other hallmarks of science to keep materialistic hope alive: “But positing the multiverse is not, as claimed by some, the end of science. It may be the start of the biggest scientific adventure of all.”The situation in cosmology is analogous to the reputation of conservatives in the media.  If conservatives were guilty of one tenth the scandals in the current progressive liberal administration in the US, the media would have tarred and feathered them to the point where they could not function and would be driven out of office, with no further hope of employment even as ditch diggers.  Similarly, if advocates of creation or intelligent design committed one hundredth the fallacies of the naturalistic cosmologists, the outcry would be deafening: These anti-science fools would take us back to the Dark Ages!  They know nothing!  They are destroying that noble ideal of science!  We can’t let them influence the children!  Away with them!But no, both groups of perpetrators get a pass, because they’re all united around a common goal: ridding the world of Romans 1.
