Calabar High School’s Christopher Taylor, who broke the 200m and 400m Class Two records at the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA) GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Athletics Championships, said he is looking forward to his first Penn Relays, while helping his school to again triumph over their main rivals – Kingston College (KC), Jamaica College (JC), and St Jago.Penn Relays will be held at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, from April 28-30.”I feel very excited knowing that it’s my first Penns and I am going to go out there and do the very best for my school,” he said.”Well, I am confident and I am in pretty good form going into the Penn Relays, so we will see what happens there,” he continued in an interview following the FLOW Foundation’s presentation of $4,030,000 to 28 high school and tertiary institutions to offset costs associated with competing at the event at their head office on Half-Way Tree Road on Tuesday.RELAY CHAMPSLast year, Calabar High shone brightest on the final day of the relay carnival. They captured the 4×100 metre in record time and the 4×400 metres.With 16-year-old Taylor recently leading his Red Hills Road-based school to a sensational victory in the 4x400m in a time of 3:08.77 ahead of Kingston College, all eyes will, no doubt, be set on another battle between the long-time rivals.Taylor, the Class Two 400m record holder, received the baton about 20 metres ahead of the Class One record holder, KC’s Akeem Bloomfield, but saw the more experienced Bloomfield surge ahead coming into the straight.However, Taylor would not be denied, and despite the KC captain’s fast 44.5-split, the Calabar stand-out kept his composure and sprinted past the tiring Purples star with a 45.3-second split.”Well, we fear no one, but we have to look up to everyone also. So yes, I am confident. We are looking to retain the title,” Taylor told The Gleaner.

A MAN who was drunk when he tried to ram his car through the front of a pub has been banned from driving for four years.Michael Carr, from Glenkeeragh, Newmills, admitted failing to provide a specimen of breath to gardai five days before Christmas last year.Inspector Michael Harrison said 66-year-old Carr drove his vehicle at the front of Larkin’s bar in Newmills. The crash caused only slight damage to a step outside.Inspector Harrison said Carr was abusive to gardai all the way to Letterkenny garda station.Once there he was asked to give a specimen of breath but told gardai: “You can stick your machine up your hole.”Carr, said the inspector, then refused to give any other samples, telling gardai: “You’ll get a blood or urine sample over my dead body.”Judge Paul Kelly said the behaviour on the night was ‘appalling’.He fined Carr €300 and banned him from driving for four years.DRIVE BAN FOR PENSIONER WHO TRIED TO DRIVE CAR THROUGH FRONT OF PUB was last modified: May 22nd, 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:courtlarkin’s barletterkennyNEWMILLS

Megafloods larger than anything seen today are better concepts for explaining certain features on Earth and Mars.Space.com and Live Science reported that megaflood theory is helping explain a large canyon in solid basalt in Idaho. Niagara Falls is a classic amphitheater-shaped canyon retreating upriver under the onslaught of water. The amphitheater-shaped heads of Malad Gorge in Idaho suggest very rapid, catastrophic cutting through the rock by “truly extraordinary” floods. Caltech researchers publishing in PNAS believe the flood that formed Woody Cove and Stubby Canyon simultaneously, with walls 165 feet high, was huge: at least 30 feet deep, flowing at 330,000 gallons per second. (A V-shaped canyon in the system, they believe, took tens of thousands of years to form.) What they are learning can inform interpretations of other structures not only on Earth:These insights into ancient megafloods on Earth could, in turn, tells scientists what may have occurred on the surface of Mars millions of years ago.Mars also has amphitheater-shaped canyons in abundance (for a reverse view of how a Mars flood may help explain Earth features, see 6/28/13). Andrew Lamb of Caltech cautions that other agents than megafloods of water could have formed them, but feels the openness to catastrophic explanations makes this an exciting time to be a geologist. “As geologists, we are always seeking new insight to read this record to better understand our planet and its potential for change.”Undersea Grand: Speaking of large canyons, there’s one that rivals the Grand Canyon, but it’s underwater. Off the coast of Morocco, Agadir Canyon is half a kilometer deep, up to 20 miles wide and 280 miles long. It has just been mapped by a German vessel, Live Science reported, after a five-week mission. Live Science also posted a 6-image gallery including the map and pictures of some of the life forms found down there. “There are a lot of interesting features that no one has ever gone and looked at,” the article said; but it misstated current rapid origin theories for the Grand Canyon, saying, “Long flows of sediment carved out the canyon over millions of years, much like a river carves out a canyon, including the Grand Canyon, on land.” There’s no reason, though, that sediment flows could not also be massive and rapid like megafloods.Andrew Lamb’s insight may not go far enough, but it’s a start. We remind readers that it is odd to look for megafloods on Mars, a cold and dry world, while discounting the work of megafloods on Earth that has water covering 70% of its surface. Remember that J Harlan Bretz’s megaflood theory for the Channeled Scablands of Washington was ridiculed for decades before it became the accepted paradigm (4/30/09). It’s not the amount of time, but the volume of water, that can make a profound difference. (Visited 24 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0

My best maniac cache is hidden in my front yard. Because my entire front yard is part of the experience, it is therefore a Multi and not Traditional. Several birdhouses, more than ten padlocks of which one is an RFID lock, challenging (fun) puzzles, different hiding techniques, and our hospitality makes it one of my most popular maniac caches.”If you’re on location and can’t seem to figure it out, IronManiacGLD invites you to ring the doorbell if he’s home and he’s happy to help. Of the geocachers that made it through this maniac cache, 91% of them awarded a Favorite point. “What a great cache. From one lock to the other. From one code to another. Step-by-step.
