John Terry’s second-minute header put Chelsea on course for victory at Stoke.Terry shrugged off the attentions of his marker Ryan Shawcross to send a powerful effort down and into the net from a Cesc Fabregas corner.The Premier League leaders were in command for most of the rest of the half and could easily have gone further ahead.Diego Costa shot just wide with a great one-on-one chance and the Blues created several opportunities on the break without testing home keeper Asmir Begovic.Eden Hazard was once again in mesmerising form and could easily have drawn a red card for Phil Bardlsey, who was instead booked for a scything challenge.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
Michael “Irreducible Complexity” Behe, the Lehigh biochemist famous for flagella, mousetraps and black boxes, took the stand in the Dover, Pennsylvania trial Monday Oct. 17. This was widely reported, such as in New Scientist, MSNBC News and the Washington Post. For an ID-friendly report with more detail of the actual proceedings, see EvolutionNews. Behe snowed some of the listeners with technical jargon, but otherwise maintained his position that evidence for intelligent design in biology is overwhelming, based on positive evidence, not admissions of ignorance. He also took swipes at the ability of Darwinian mechanisms to explain molecular machines. Other school boards are watching this trial with both interest and trepidation. The Washington Post said,More school boards are considering mandating mention of intelligent design. Randy Tomasacci, a school board member from Shickshinny, north of Harrisburg, said his board is debating whether to require teachers to spend a few days on intelligent design. We’re thinking about it,” he said. “But we don’t want to get sued out of existence.”For Behe’s part, he is safe. Though Lehigh University, where he teaches, has repudiated intelligent design, Behe has tenure and (unlike some other ID supporters) cannot be terminated for his views. Reporters and critics, meanwhile, seemed fixated on Behe’s Catholicism and on whether he believed the Designer is God.Can’t the reporters get fixated on the evidence instead? Maybe they would learn something about science instead of the secret motivations of their caricatured foes. At least anti-ID reporter Alan Boyle is working his way through Lee Strobel’s book The Case for a Creator among his stack of pro-evolution books and websites (see MSNBC), perhaps after being sufficiently hammered by emails from readers about his bias. MSNBC also printed a story about a parent worried that his daughter might not be accepted by other students if she doesn’t agree with ID. No worries. Christians don’t believe in doing unto others as they did unto us.(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
11 December 2009Standard Bank has signed a six-year US$100-million (about R747-million) loan agreement with three European development finance institutions. The loan will be used to fund infrastructure projects and project finance lending in Africa.The loan was coordinated by Germany’s Deutsche Investitions- und Entwicklungsgesellschaft (DEG), along with Netherlands’ FMO and the Austria’s Oesterreichische Entwicklungsbank (OeEB).“The deal will hopefully serve as a platform for future cooperation between Standard Bank, DEG and the other lenders across a range of different banking products and geographies,” said Standard Bank Africa CEO Clive Tasker in a statement last week.It is the first transaction between Standard Bank of South Africa and DEG, one of Europe’s largest development finance institutions.“The tranche, made available by several development finance institutions, will enable Standard Bank to finance investments in the infrastructure sector,” said DEG chairman Bruno Wenn.Boosting continental trade, investmentStandard Bank has been very active in securing international credit facilities to fund trade and investment on the African continent, especially in light of the global financial crisis.In April, it received a $400-million credit line from the International Finance Corporation’s Global Trade Liquidity Programme to support trade in sub-Saharan Africa.In September, it raised a further US$1-billion loan facility with four major Chinese banks: the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (Macau), Bank of China, China Development Bank, and China CITIC Bank.And, in October, it signed a further $150-million loan agreement with the Japan Bank for International Cooperation to boost trade on the continent.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
