Convincing Answer to Questions of Sex and Gender Presented

first_imgPrize-winning author Nancy Pearcey’s new book answers hard questions about human sexuality in her latest book.Christ followers often find it difficult to handle the rise of LGBT activists and the questions they present to traditional morality and family. Without any of the judgmentalism homosexuals might expect from Christians, Nancy Pearcey’s new book Love Thy Body presents arguments that even some in the movement say make sense.ID the Future presented two podcast interviews with Nancy Pearcey where she explains what the book is about:In Episode 1, Pearcey explains her “high view of the body” and how it offers solutions for those questioning their sexual feelings.In Episode 2, Pearcey explains the value of harmony and coherence, and how opponents of design find themselves unable to live according to their own convictions.In addition to the book, Pearcey is featured in some video interviews online. She has many examples of homosexuals and transgenders who found harmony in their lives by considering her arguments, which capitalize on the “good design” of humanity.Note to readers: Reporting at Creation-Evolution Headlines will be spotty for the rest of the month as the Editor takes some breaks – some obligatory and some for well-needed rest.

Parliament ‘to continue Mandela legacy’

first_img8 July 2013 Parliament has vowed to stay true to the legacy of former president Nelson Mandela, particularly his heritage of uniting South Africans. The pledge was made by the Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Nomaindia Mfeketo, at a tribute service to Madiba at St George’s Cathedral in Cape Town on Friday. Mandela remains in a critical but stable condition in the Medi-Clinic Heart Hospital in Pretoria, where he was admitted on 8 June for a recurring lung infection. In her address on Friday, Mfeketo recalled that in his farewell speech as outgoing president, Madiba had spoken about the multi-party character of Parliament. On that occasion, he had paid tribute to all parties which, despite political differences, had shown their overriding commitment to the new political order, as well as ensuring that members were not a rubber stamp for government. “These are but some of the principles and practices anchoring the legacy of Madiba as the first democratically elected president of a free South Africa in our Parliament,” Mfeketo said. “As your Parliament and as public representatives, we will attend all multi-faith prayer services and all the other initiatives in honour of Madiba wherever they occur. We will be broad and inclusive to ensure that the legacy of Madiba, as a unifier extraordinaire, is sustained in the best manner possible.” She said Madiba had, in his first address to a joint sitting of the two houses of Parliament, wedded himself to the vision of creating a people-centred society. “In committing ourselves as public representatives, this is the time to focus our energies on what President Madiba pronounced when he declared that Parliament must lead the fight against the evils of poverty, disease and ignorance. We want to recommit ourselves to bettering the lives of all South Africans.” Mfeketo said the nation had been on tenterhooks since the former statesman was hospitalised, adding that the thought of Madiba being unwell was unsettling. “The thought of Madiba in hospital, indisposed due to illness is harrowing. This is not what we wish for our beloved hero. You [Madiba] are one of a kind. Your place in our heart is yours and yours alone. We needed you at the worst of times in our history, we need you now, and we need you for eternity,” Mfeketo said. Friday’s tribute was organized by Parliament’s presiding officers, who, despite the institution being in recess, met and agreed to partner with the rest of society to “celebrate the legacy of our pre-eminent icon”. In the audience, sitting side by side and united in their wish to pay tribute to Madiba, were Lindiwe Mazibuko, leader of the opposition in Parliament, politicians who had served in Mandela’s Cabinet, judges, civil society organisations and ordinary men and women.

Morpheus: Y Combinator-Like Incubator in India (RWS Interview)

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Morpheus describes itself as “a gang of serial entrepreneurs and around 40 startup founders” who are “trying to make a small contribution towards India’s startup revolution.” The venture aims to fill the gap in early-stage financing with a decidedly hands-on approach. Is it a fund, an angel network, or an incubator? Are these labels even still relevant? What segments does it focus on? What is early-stage innovation in India like? We spoke recently with Indus Kaitan, a Valley entrepreneur who returned to India as a Morpheus partner. Read on and listen to find out more about the early-stage scene in India.Listen to the InterviewDownload the MP3.Two Things to Know About MorpheusHow much equity do you take in each company?“We take an equity stake of 4 to 8% in each of the companies we engage with as part of the business acceleration program.”Do you invest money in companies?“No. Currently, we do not make any capital investment. We work alongside you as a co-founder, and we invest sweat capital and intellectual capital in the portfolio.”In other words, Morpheus is an incubator (the team calls it an “accelerator”), not a fund. If you need cash, find it elsewhere. Morpheus is okay with the label “Like Y Combinator, but without the cash.” That makes sense, because cash is not what makes Y Combinator interesting. Also, as Indus explains, very few people in India are willing to work purely for equity, without cash. Morpheus is willing to do that. It invests time and experience for equity.Our Questions and MP3 GuideQuestion: How is early-stage financing doing during this downturn compared to the last one in 2001/2002?Skip to 2:24 in MP3Summary: Investment during the last six months is down 58% from a year ago. VCs have moved to later-stage, leaving a real gap in early-stage financing.Question: How is the VC model changing, if at all, and how does the global financial crisis impact this change?Skip to 5:30 in MP3Summary: VCs in India are investing in profitable businesses, even in publicly traded companies, because they need to juice short-term returns, leaving early-stage financing in trouble.Question: What percentage of your investments targets a local or regional market as opposed to a global market?Skip to 11:00 in MP3Summary: Morpheus does local plays in India. It had tried global plays from India, but unless management and marketing were in the US, you missed that critical local nuance.Question: If costs are lower in India than in the US, how is this reflected in the amount of funding required?Skip to 14:48 in MP3Summary: Funding is not lower and may even be higher because people won’t work for equity as they do in the Valley.Question: What market segments excite you today?Skip to 19:30 in MP3Summary: Health care for the mass market in India.Interesting Portfolio CompaniesVericar does used-car certification and appraisal, catering to the used-car market in India, which is at a million units every year.Robots Alive is the second company in India to have manufactured a robotics arm from the ground up. Costs were around $15,000, compared to an imported version that cost around three times as much.Listen to the InterviewDownload the MP3.

Report: Sassuolo 1 AC Milan 4

first_imgGennaro Gattuso’s position as AC Milan’s head coach was strengthened by a timely 4-1 win at high-flying Sassuolo, which featured a trio of brilliant goals.Reports in Italy suggested Milan’s poor start to the Serie A season meant the club were considering replacing Gattuso with former Chelsea and Juventus coach Antonio Conte.But Franck Kessie’s 20-yard drive got Milan up and running at the MAPEI Stadium on Sunday, with Suso and Samu Castillejo also scoring from outside the penalty area in the second half.

Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! A second from Suso in injury time sealed a win that breaks a run of three straight draws in the league and moves the Rossoneri into the top half, while Sassuolo – who got a goal back through Filip Djuricic – stay fifth after missing the chance to climb into second spot.Suso thundered an early strike against the crossbar from a tight angle but Kessie should have given Milan the lead in the 26th minute – his dinked finish beat Andrea Consigli but lacked enough power to cross the line, allowing Pol Lirola to clear off the line.Federico Di Francesco missed a similarly golden chance when he drilled at the legs of Gianluigi Donnarumma when fed by Domenico Berardi, then Ignazio Abate’s wonderful challenge prevented a certain Sassuolo goal.Kessie made amends for his earlier miss by breaking the deadlock in the 39th minute, smashing a low drive into the bottom-right corner from 20 yards to round off a 50-yard run.Another fine finish doubled Milan’s advantage five minutes after the restart, with Suso – making his 100th Serie A appearance – cutting in off the right flank to whip home a 25-yard curler.Milan gave up leads in their least two Serie A games but Castillejo seemingly made the points safe, scoring his first Rossoneri goal with another terrific left-foot shot from distance on the hour mark.Although Sassuolo responded through Djuricic to spark a nervy finale, Suso scored again with the last kick of the game – his deflected shot surviving a VAR review – to boost Gattuso.Back to winning ways!Si torna alla vittoria! #SassuoloMilan 1-4 pic.twitter.com/hN0nskFCni— AC Milan (@acmilan) September 30, 2018What it means: Relief for Gattuso Gattuso has been batting away questions about Conte all season but speculation reached fever-pitch in the build-up to this game. In truth, Milan did not play that well – although they were missing injured striker Gonzalo Higuain – but individual quality hauled them to a much-needed victory in front of the watching sporting director Leonardo.Abate tackle a decisive moment Kessie, Suso and Castillejo, deployed as a centre-forward, will make the headlines for their wonderful goals but Abate deserves his share of the credit for a tremendous challenge when the scores were level. Di Francesco was poised to tap in a Kevin-Prince Boateng cross when Abate arrived, seemingly out of nowhere, to make a vital intervention.Wasteful Di Francesco costs hosts There was little Di Francesco could do about Abate’s brilliant defensive instincts but the Sassuolo attacker had already wasted an excellent opportunity to score the first goal of the game.

I am not really thinking about the rankings and I want to play tournaments and do well. I don’t want to run behind rankings. All I want to do is play well in the tournaments.”The soft-spoken Srikanth said he was determined to take it one round at a time at the French Open. “At the end, I think I did really well.”Earlier, speaking exclusively to India Today, Srikanth had said: “I am very happy with the win and in all, it has been a fantastic last couple of weeks for me.

Kyrgios Rattles Aussie Tennis

first_imgAustralian tennis once was full of good news stories, and personalities to match.Rod Laver, the only male player to twice win all four Grand Slam tournaments in the same calendar year — in 1962 and 1969 — and leading women’s major winner Margaret Court were in that category.Other exemplary role models and multiple major winners include Evonne Goolagong Cawley, Ken Rosewall, John Newcombe and Pat Rafter.Two-time Grand Slam champion Lleyton Hewitt, a Davis Cup stalwart who had an often difficult time with his on-court demeanor, has emerged recently as a more eloquent elder statesman during his injury-forced move toward retirement.Even during dry spells in Davis Cup play and in men’s majors over the past decade, players have mostly been respectful.So where, seemingly, has it all gone wrong?At Wimbledon, 20-year-old Nick Kyrgios battled with umpires time and again, was accusing of tanking and swore so loudly and abused his rackets so violently that he was fined nearly $10,000.That behavior earned him the wrath of an Australian sports great, Olympic champion swimmer Dawn Fraser.The 77-year-old Fraser told a breakfast television show in Australia she was disgusted by Kyrgios’ behavior in his fourth-round loss to Richard Gasquet at Wimbledon.“They should be setting a better example for the younger generation of this great country of ours,” Fraser said. “If they don’t like it, go back to where their fathers or their parents came from.”Kyrgios, who was born in Canberra, the Australian capital, has a father born in Greece and a Malaysian-born mother.After outrage on social media, Fraser apologized for her comments about Kyrgios’ family.Laver told ESPN television that he thought Kyrgios’ behavior was holding him back.“Nick’s young and maybe doesn’t realize what he is doing sometimes,” Laver said. “He’s playing with emotion … that’s certainly something that he needs to grow out of and he needs to grow out of that sooner rather than later. There’s certainly no excuse for swearing. That’s just bad behavior, that’s ugly.”Just when that media skirmish was settling, 22-year-old Bernard Tomic renewed his ongoing messy tussle with Rafter, who now is Tennis Australia’s Performance Director.Tomic, after reading Rafter’s earlier comments critical of him, complained at a post-match press conference at Wimbledon about lack of support when he was injured, being made to pay for practice balls and courts and directly criticized other Tennis Australia officials, which drew him a suspension from this weekend’s home Davis Cup quarterfinal against Kazakhstan in Darwin.And on the day that Novak Djokovic defeated Roger Federer for his third Wimbledon title, and with the Australian singles players long gone from southwest London, the feud kept simmering Down Under.Rafter, responding to Tomic’s comments, told Sunday’s News Limited newspapers that playing tennis for Australia was “about opportunity, not entitlement.”“It’s a principle I believe in and feel really passionate about,” Rafter added.Kyrgios was quick to respond on Twitter: “Another negative comment out of Rafters mouth. Does this guy ever stop? (hashtag)everyoneisaworkinprogress.”Kyrgios later deleted the tweet, but damage was done.On July 13, as if the sport in Australia needed another controversy, Tennis Australia sent out a listing of upcoming matches for Australians overseas, and it noted that Tomic had a first-round match at the Hall of Shame tournament in Newport, Rhode Island. That was supposed to be the Hall of Fame tournament, and Tennis Australia quickly sent a correction and an apology.As many tweets suggested, you couldn’t make this up.“This unfortunate error has been widely circulated on social media and there is some discussion as to how such a mistake could occur,” Tennis Australia said. “We have a very upset staff member who made a simple clerical error.”Tomic’s family said they were considering legal action because of Tennis Australia’s “continual shaming and misrepresentation of Bernard.” Tomic lost in the first round in Newport on July 13 in straight sets.Kyrgios arrived in Darwin for the Davis Cup match against Kazakhstan and said Tomic should have been included, but Australian captain Wally Masur was in a more conciliatory mood.“We’d like to think that cool heads will prevail,” Masur said, “and at some point everyone can sit down in a room and get to the bottom of all the issues.”DENNIS PASSA, AP Sports WriterTweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Madrid ease past Eibar to stay third

first_imgReal Madrid 3 Eibar 0: Super Asensio spares Ronaldo’s blushes Patric Ridge Last updated 2 years ago 04:35 10/23/17 Asensio - cropped Getty Images Marco Asensio was in fine form for Real Madrid as they overcame Eibar 3-0 in LaLiga, as Cristiano Ronaldo’s woes in front of goal returned. Marco Asensio put in a sparkling display to help Real Madrid overcome LaLiga strugglers Eibar 3-0, while Cristiano Ronaldo’s dire form in front of goal continued.The Madrid youngster had not scored since netting a double against Valencia in August, but he took centre stage in the first-half at the Santiago Bernabeu.Having already crafted a gilt-edged opening for the equally impressive Isco, Asensio played a major part in Madrid’s rather fortunate 18th-minute opener – Paulo Oliveira inadevertently turning in the 21-year-old’s cross.
