The previous week’s level was revised down by 294,000 from 2,981,000 to 2,687,000. The 4-week moving average was 3,042,000, a decrease of 501,000 from the previous week’s revised average. The previous week’s average was revised down by 73,500 from 3,616,500 to 3,543,000. The advance seasonally adjusted insured unemployment rate was 17.2% for the week ending May 9, an increase of 1.7 percentage points from the previous week’s revised rate.The previous week’s rate was revised down by 0.2 from 15.7% to 15.5%. The advance number for seasonally adjusted insured unemployment during the week ending May 9 was 25,073,000, an increase of 2,525,000 from the previous week’s revised level. The previous week’s level was revised down by 285,000 from 22,833,000 to 22,548,000. The 4-week moving average was 22,002,250, an increase of 2,313,500 from the previous week’s revised average. The previous week’s average was revised down by 71,250 from 19,760,000 to 19,688,750.”As with the prior weeks, a few caveats make this week’s data difficult to interpret precisely,” said Doug Duncan, Chief Economist, Fannie Mae. “On one hand, unemployment insurance eligibility rules have been relaxed recently, increasing the number of people who are able to apply. This makes it difficult to estimate the uninsured unemployed share of the workforce. On the other hand, many states reported a significant backlog of unemployment insurance applications due to a lack of processing capacity, indicating that this week’s release may understate the true extent of insured layoffs.”As the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to impact the economy, and claims for unemployment insurance reach record highs, homeowners are at an increased risk of becoming delinquent in the coming months. According to Black Knight, some 3.6 million homeowners were past due on their mortgages as of the end of April (including the roughly 211,000 who were in active foreclosure)—the highest number since January 2015.

“And you would have to say it would serve them right, because there has been absolutely no forward planning for the day when he finally left the Emirates.“The only way the board should have let him run down his contract is if they had private assurances he was staying.“Otherwise, it is total incompetence to get to this stage.” Share on: WhatsApp London, United Kingdom | AFP | Arsenal legend Ian Wright fears Arsene Wenger would leave the Gunners “totally in the lurch” if he decides to quit the Premier League club this week.Wenger met Arsenal majority shareholder Stan Kroenke and chief executive Ivan Gazidis on Monday to discuss his future before his contract expires next month.The 67-year-old is also due to attend an Arsenal board meeting on Tuesday when the directors will be told whether he will extend his 21-year reign.Wenger has been heavily criticised this season, with Arsenal fans calling for his resignation after their team failed to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in 20 years.Reports suggest Wenger is leaning towards signing a new two-year deal despite the abuse and talk of his frustration at boardroom plans to modernise his coaching staff.With Arsenal having beaten Premier League champions Chelsea 2-1 in the FA Cup final on Saturday, giving Wenger a record seventh success in the competition, it seems unlikely the Frenchman will quit.But if he does walk out, Wright, Arsenal’s second-highest goalscorer of all time, says it has been total incompetence from the club’s hierarchy to have allowed this situation to have arisen.Writing in his column in The Sun, Wright said: “I’ve got a nasty feeling Arsene Wenger will walk away from the Arsenal job today, leaving the club totally in the lurch.
Creston cut the lead on the power play.With Schell in the box for high sticking, the Leaf defence completely deserted Soles, allowing Angus Johnston at least three kicks at the net before the Alberta native poked the puck into the Nelson goal.However, any momentum gained by the Thunder Cats was erased when scored three times during a six-minute span with two of the goals coming on the power play.Dustin Reimer got the offence going before Sookro, tapping in a neat pass from Willans, scored his second of the game and Seth Schmidt finished off the assault with a long point shot.Willans, scoring Nelson’s third power play of the game, and Marcel Fuchs of the Cats exchanged goals in a period Creston held a 13-8 shots advantage.”The second period was key and we also had a good start,” Schell explained.”Our preparation was a lot better before this game.”Soles, improving his season record to 13-1, faced 22 shots in the Leaf nets.Nelson is idle until Wednesday when Castlegar visits the NDCC Arena for a 7 p.m. puck drop.GAME NOTES: Nelson received an early Christmas present from divisional rival Beaver Valley as the Hawks stuck it to the Rebels 5-3 at the Hawks Nest. The Castlegar loss increases Nelson’s lead in the Murdoch Division to seven points with the Leafs having played an extra game. . . . Brandon Sookro now has three goals for the Leafs this season. The Kootenay Ice sniper also hit the post in the second period. Sookro and the Ice face Matthew Barzal and the Vancouver Northeast Chiefs in Major Midget action Saturday and Sunday in Castlegar. Barzal, the first overall Bantam pick by the Seattle Thunderbirds of the WHL leads the Major Midget League ion scoring with 54 points in 19 games. . . .Nelson center Bryce Nielsen continues to be sidelined with an upper body injury. Creston had the perfect opportunity to sneak into the Heritage City under the cloak of night and steal two points from a team already looking to a Wednesday night showdown with their division rivals.However, the Nelson Leafs put forth just enough effort to knock off the Thunder Cats 6-2 in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League action Friday night at the NDCC Arena.Nelson rode the offensive punch of three team leaders — Carsen Willans (three points), team captain Colton Schell (three points) and Linden Horswill (four points) — to a four-goal second period, then jumped on the shoulders of netminder Brett Soles to secure the victory against one of the league’s weaker teams.”This win was definitely important . . . especially with Castlegar coming up (the Rebels face the Leafs Wednesday in Nelson),” Horswill said from outside the Leaf dressing room.”We need the points to keep a margin between us and Castlegar.””We needed to rebuild our confidence especially with Castlegar coming up,” Schell later explained.”Despite being out shot 9-8 in the opening frame it was the Leafs heading to the dressing room leading 1-0 on a goal by Major Midget affiliate player Brandon Sookro.In the second Nelson increased its lead when a soft shot by Willans somehow found its way through the legs of Creston goalie Zach Straza less than three minutes into the second period.
The Nelson Selects finished seventh overall at the BC Soccer Les Sinnott Memorial U15 Boys Provincial B Cup Tournament Sunday in 100 Mile House.Nelson bounced Quesnel 3-0 in Consolation Round action.”As disappointing as the tournament was, there was an encouraging aspect,” said Nelson skipper Kerry Dyck.”None of the teams we played were out of our class, and I feel next year, if we work on improving our shooting, eliminate the errors and have a healthy roster, we have every reason to believe we can do very well.”Nelson entered the tournament up against the wall from the opening whistle.Nelson opened with a few injury issues, most notably to number one striker. The player, unable to play in the tournament, accounted for close to half of our goals during the year. The Selects then lost its top keeper to injury after the second game and second leading scorer from the season.Nelson lost 5-0 to Langley United in the opener Thursday before dropping a tough 2-1 decision to Sanich Fusion Friday.The Selects concluded the tournament Saturday with a 1-0 setback to Bulkley Valley Rapids.”We generated 15 and a whopping 24 attempts on goal, respectively, in those two games, but only converted a single goal,” Dyck explained.”We were definitely missing our number one striker, who I am certain would have scored on many of the chances that we missed, had he been able to play.”However, Nelson was able to rally to leave 100 Mile House with a victory.”Again we dominated, with another 24 shots (15 on target, 9 off) to their 6 (none of which were on target) and at least this time we managed to score on 3 of our shots,” Dyck said.”Even at that, finishing was still an issue that we will have to work on, as we should have had at least double the goals in that game. “But it was nice for the boys to at least end on a win.”

(Visited 628 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 He was highly regarded in his day, but the beliefs of Comte de Buffon seem comical now.Janet Browne is delighted to see a new translation of a 1778 book by French philosopher Comte de Buffon (full name: George-Louis Leclerc, le comte de Buffon, hereafter Buffon). Browne is the historian of science who wrote an eye-opening but richly-sourced biography of Darwin we have referred to repeatedly (Charles Darwin: The Power of Place, Princeton 2002). Her portrayal of Darwin failed to sufficiently exalt the bearded Buddha to the pantheon of Greatest Scientist Ever as Darwin lovers expected. Instead, she exposed him as a schemer surrounded by accomplices (the X-Club) who used “audacious skulduggery” to get his ideas adopted and criticisms quashed (3 March 2008), to the point where Darwin schemed to manipulate his disciples to worship him as a god. But with access to the largest number of original documents, she had to tell the truth as a historian.Now, Browne is relishing the translation of Buffon’s Les Époques De La Nature — (Epochs of Nature, or the story of the Earth, first published in 1778). It had only been available in French till now. First, some background on Buffon (1707-1788), as described in Janet Browne’s review of the translation, published by Current Biology:George-Louis Leclerc, le comte de Buffon (1707 – 1788)Born into the landed bourgeoisie during the ancien régime, Buffon was a self-made, dynamic and cosmopolitan intellectual who became one of Europe’s best-known natural philosophers of the Enlightenment period, rapidly ascending to the directorship of the Jardin du Roi and Muséum d’Histoire Naturelle in Paris. He was elevated to the aristocracy in 1772 and died in 1788, just before the [French] revolution began. Had he lived longer, Buffon might have lost his head to the guillotine, although natural history was regarded as useful knowledge by the revolutionaries, and figures such as Buffon’s student Jean-Baptise Lamarck were allowed to remain active as professors at the Jardin. Nevertheless, Buffon’s death from natural causes marked the end of an era in Enlightenment science. Knowledge became a very different enterprise as the 19th century dawned.Browne is no ally of creationism, nor opponent of Darwinism. She just tries to be honest with the history of important figures in the rise of science. Creationists generally look down on Buffon for his atheism and his push to “naturalize” all science. He was one of the first to postulate long ages. Additionally, Buffon was one of the first proponents of “positivism,” teaching that the rise of materialistic science as the culmination of a series of evolutionary stages in the history of mankind, with science triumphing over religious superstition in the final stage. Would the French Revolution or the world wars of the 20th century have shaken his faith? We can only surmise.Buffon’s Epochs of Nature dealt with the Earth’s history from its origins in the planetary system to the modern era, arranged in seven successive epochs or time periods. In creating the volume, Buffon produced one of the most influential geological books in European science. Of course, there had been authoritative histories of the Earth beforehand and much careful research performed. Yet Buffon presented a thoroughly ‘enlightened’ and scientific view of the Earth that ran against the general Christian orthodoxy of the biblical story and proposed a vastly expanded timeframe. He is noted as one of the first scholars to introduce evidence for a directional, developmental history of the Earth and for laying important foundations for what would become an evolutionary point of view.As she indicates, Buffon influenced many scholars to come, who began to embrace long ages and evolutionary ideas. The myth of progress blossomed in the Victorian age, as increasing numbers of scientists, starting with the geologists, jettisoned the Bible and looked to their own “enlightened” reason to explain the world around them. This all culminated in Darwin’s Origin in 1859. By Darwin’s death in 1882, few were the scientists remaining who did not optimistically embrace the core of Buffon’s “positivism” that trusted in unaided human reason’s power to explain everything without reference to Divine revelation.Now that the table is set, let’s see what Buffon actually believed. Remember, he was highly regarded in his day. He was a scientific “expert.” His influence was profound; “one of the most widely read authors of the day — a rival to Montesquieu, Rousseau, and Voltaire.” But with the hindsight of history, who would not chuckle at what he taught in this book? Without meaning to, Browne presents him as somewhat of a buffoon by today’s standards. She kills him with kindness in her review that lauds his influence on the history of thought. Here are some tidbits gleaned from the review:“His account was founded on the idea of successive epochs, each following the other from the dawn of time and possessing different organisms to match changing atmospheric and geological conditions.”“his section explaining the metaphorical links between the bible and actual Earth history is a masterpiece of inventive yet logical thinking.“To Buffon, “everything proceeded along entirely natural pathways, one geological change generating the conditions for the next to emerge, a secular process of development set into place at the beginning by some abstract, supernatural force.““Yet his Earth was exceedingly old, older than anyone previously had suggested: some 75,000 years from the beginning, and almost ‘blasphemously old’ in the words of the authors.”“Buffon explained that the Earth was once an intensely hot cloud of matter that had spun off from the sun.““As the planet cooled, the waters emerged and receded, landmasses took shape, and the first living beings were spontaneously generated in the highest latitudes, as those were the areas first to cool.”“animals diversified according to environmental conditions and colonized the vacant landmasses, proceeding from north to south.”Modern scientists might try to defend these views as initial baby steps in a framework to explain phenomena by natural means. And yet most of what this “expert” said is no longer believed today, even by the secular evolutionary geologists and biologists who are his philosophical heirs. The Earth spun off the sun as a hot cloud? Water “emerged” somehow? Where did it come from? (This is a major problem for planetary science to this day.) Life emerged by spontaneous generation? It started at the highest latitudes? It moved from north to south? And all this happened without design in 75,000 years? “Inventive thinking” is the best euphemistic praise one could give to such ideas.The take-home lesson from Browne’s review is that today’s scientists can have little confidence that their own expertise will be looked on favorably 240 years from now. Their books might even by decaying on the shelves of the Eloi.Ha! Just imagine. The planet spun off the sun as a hot cloud! Life arose spontaneously! Water “emerged”! The environment created animals! Inventive thinking! Stuff happens! Hey, wait a minute; except for enlarging Buffon’s 75,000 years by almost three orders of magnitude, they still believe similar types of buffoonery today.
Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement dan rowinski What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Apple has requested an injuction against the sale of eight Samsung devices. The move follows its patent-infringement victory over Samsung.According to The Verge, Apple is requesting injunctions against sales of eight Samsung devicess (see the court document here). Apple is going after some of Samsung’s most popular 2011 products. Apple’s list includes iterations of the Galaxy S II, which was widely considered to be the best Android smartphone of 2011. The S II came in a variety of flavors as Samsung tweaked the device for U.S. mobile carriers. According to The Verge, the list includes:Galaxy S 4GGalaxy S2 (AT&T)Galaxy S2 (Skyrocket)Galaxy S2 (T-Mobile)Galaxy S2 Epic 4GGalaxy S ShowcaseDroid ChargeGalaxy PrevailIn the just-adjourned patent-infringement suit, 25 Samsung devices were found to infringe on one or more of Apple’s patents. Many of those devices are older or generate marginal sales (such as the original Galaxy S, Fascinate and Captivate). But, the S II is a popular phone globally. In June, Samsung said it had sold 28 million S II’s worldwide. (Note: Samsung says sales but it is actually units shipped.) Overall, 50 million Galaxy S and S II units had been sold as of June. See: A Brief History of the Samsung GalaxyApple’s patent suit did not challenge Samsung products launched after the case was filed, models including the Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note and others. Apple’s main target with the injunction is the profitable long tail of Samsung’s mobile-product line. Every Galaxy S II sold is one fewer iPhone sold.
