Arsenal, Spurs produce late comebacks

first_imgLONDON (AP):The English Premier League’s north London rivals left it late to snatch points yesterday, with Tottenham outdoing Arsenal with their comeback.Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud scored only his third Premier League goal of the season to retrieve a 1-1 draw at Manchester United.Tottenham forward Harry Kane, who missed almost two months through injury across September and October, scored twice in the closing minutes against West Ham to recover a 3-2 victory and end his team’s seven-match winless run.Liverpool remained on top despite being held by Southampton to 0-0, but Manchester City are only behind on goal difference after winning at Crystal Palace 2-1.Chelsea, who play Middlesbrough today and Arsenal are two points behind the front-runners, while Tottenham are a further point back in fifth.MAN UNITED 1 ARSENAL 1Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger’s winless run in competitive meetings with rival coach JosÈ Mourinho extended to 14 matches, but the Frenchman will probably not be too concerned with that after seeing his side escape with a point.Giroud scored an 89th-minute equaliser in a disappointing meeting between two English heavyweights. In a rare attack by the visitors, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain reached the byline and crossed for his fellow substitute to head home at the far post with Arsenal’s first effort on target all match.Juan Mata’s 68th-minute goal put United ahead, the playmaker meeting a right-wing cut-back by Ander Herrera with a low, first-time shot into the corner.TOTTENHAM 3 WEST HAM 2Tottenham remain the only unbeaten team in all four leagues in England thanks to Kane’s late scoring exploits.Kane, the league’s top scorer last season, netted in the 89th minute and again in the first minute of stoppage time from the penalty spot as West Ham unravelled at White Hart Lane. There was still time for Winston Reid to be sent off after collecting his second yellow card for pushing Kane in the final seconds.Michail Antonio put West Ham ahead with a 24th-minute goal that was cancelled out six minutes after halftime by Harry Winks on his first Premier League start. West Ham went back in front thanks to Manuel Lanzini’s penalty after Reid was fouled by Vincent Janssen.CRYSTAL PALACE 1 MAN CITY 2Yaya Toure made an immediate impact on his return from his Manchester City exile.The Ivorian midfielder was a surprise inclusion in Pep Guardiola’s starting XI, making his first league appearance of the season, and justified his selection by scoring goals in the 39th and 83rd minutes to bring City level on points with first-place Liverpool.Substitute Connor Wickham’s 66th-minute goal briefly made it 1-1, but Palace slumped to a fifth successive defeat.Other results: Watford 2 Leicester 1; Everton 1 Swansea 1; Stoke 0 Bournemouth 1.last_img read more

first_imgBertie: His letters have gone missingSinn Féin Finance spokesperson Pearse Doherty has revealed that key documents relating to the bank guarantee cannot be found ahead of the upcoming banking inquiry.Deputy Doherty, who received the information through an FOI request, said Enda Kenny’s public criticism of Fianna Fáil over missing files in the Department of Taoiseach are compounded by this latest revelation.The missing documents are a letter from 2009 from Bank of Ireland Governor to Noel M Corcoran, tax advisor linked to Bertie Ahern, and copied to Minister for Finance Brian Lenihan and a letter from Mr Corcoran to the Governor copied to the Minister. Deputy Doherty said: “These letters existed in 2009.  They were released but the content was fully redacted to a journalist under the Freedom of Information legislation.“However I have now been informed that these letters have gone missing from the Department of Finance.“These are some of the only documents between the Governor of the Bank of Ireland and the Minister for Finance during a period when the government decided to pump €3.5million of taxpayers’ money into that bank.“The third party to these documents is a tax adviser linked to Bertie Ahern who gave evidence at the planning tribunal because the former Taoiseach sought tax liability advice from him in relation to the Manchester whip around. “The Taoiseach is on the record of the Dáil criticising Mícheál Martin over missing files relating to the banking guarantee in the Department of Taoiseach.  He said they have either been shredded disposed or dispatched of.“This new revelation compounds that criticism.  Once again key documents in relation to the bank guarantee cannot be found after Fianna Fáil have left office.“The only reason we know that these documents are missing is because two separate FOIs were made on the same document over a four year period.  The question has to be asked about what other sensitive documents have gone missing.  The reality is that we may never know.“If the upcoming banking inquiry is to be successful it is important that all relevant documents are found or returned.” BANK GUARANTEE LETTERS GO ‘MISSING’ FROM FINANCE DEPARTMENT – DOHERTY was last modified: January 10th, 2014 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:BANK GUARANTEE LETTERS GO ‘MISSING’ FROM FINANCE DEPARTMENT – DOHERYBertie AhernPearse Dohertylast_img read more

China Celebrates Non-Discovery of Dark Matter

first_imgA huge dark matter detector in China celebrated the publication of its first results: nothing.You have to dig down into an article on PhysOrg to find out what happened.  Featuring a big photo of the Chinese report about the initial findings from Panda-X, the country’s dark matter detector, the article buried the results near the bottom.  For 12 paragraphs, the article talks about how big and wonderful the detector is:PandaX is the first dark matter experiment in China that deploys more than one hundred kilograms of xenon as a detector; the project is designed to monitor potential collisions between xenon nucleons and weakly interactive massive particles, hypothesized candidates for dark matter.This is followed by a discussion of theories about dark matter, and why weakly interactive massive particles (WIMPs) are prime candidates.  Late in the article, after the reader has learned more than he or she may care to know about China’s entry into the world-wide search, and what methods different detectors use, comes the answer to the most interesting question, “What did they find?”No dark matter signal was observed in the first PandaX-I run, which places strong constraints on all previously reported dark matter-like signals from other similar types of experiments.The PandaX experiment to date has collected about 4 million raw events; only about ten thousand events fell into the energy region of interest for dark matter. In the quiet central part of the xenon target only 46 events were observed.However, the data from these 46 events was consistent with signals marking background radiation, not dark matter.Too bad.  All that work for nothing.  Again.  “The scale of the PandaX-I experiment is second only to that of LUX, which is currently the planet’s largest dark matter experiment and is located in a South Dakota mine in the US.”  America celebrated LUX’s non-detection of dark matter last year (see 10/30/13).  Which country wants to be next?The subdued placement of the results was not lost on readers, who left a lively trail of comments after the article.Update 10/09/14:  XMASS in October!  The Kavli Foundation’s experiment published results of its search for warm WIMPs:XMASS is a cryogenic detector using about 1 ton of liquid xenon as the target material. Using 165.9 days of data, a significant excess above the background is not observed in the fiducial mass of 41 kg. The absence of such a signal excludes the possibility that bosonic super-WIMPs constitute all dark matter in the universe.Once again, the non-detection was buried near the end of the article after a lot of hype about the instrument.OK, cosmologists, put up or shut up.  Where is it?  Don’t WIMP out on us after years of hype.What will cosmologists do if observations deprive them of their favorite snake oil?  If dark matter and dark energy turn out to be phantoms of their imaginations, how will anybody ever trust them again?  These dark things are supposed to represent 96% of reality!What does that imply about secular science’s grasp on reality?
