Aguero won’t take short cuts

first_img Manager Manuel Pellegrini hinted last week that Aguero could be fit to face Southampton in the Premier League this Saturday but the player himself – also crucial to Argentina’s World Cup campaign – is cautious. The 25-year-old told DirecTV: “With this recovery I am trying to do my best to be able to play again, but I cannot do it in a hurry. “I do think to myself if something happens now, I will lose the rest of the Premier League season and the World Cup.” Manchester City’s top scorer Sergio Aguero does not intend to take short cuts in his recovery from injury. Aguero, who has scored 26 goals in all competitions for Capital One Cup winners City this term, has been out since suffering a hamstring injury in the Champions League loss at Barcelona on March 12. It is his third setback of an otherwise outstanding season following previous calf and hamstring problems. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

A Christmas Gift 38 Years in the Making

first_imgBy Rick GeffkenFrank Capra’s “It’s a Wonderful Life” is about George Bailey and his Christmas angel Clarence. “The Gift of the Magi” is an O. Henry story about the selfless exchanges of a husband and wife. A recent uncommon gift of love and remembrance in our Two River area by a real married couple virtually defines the Christmas spirit we all aspire to.When Asa Sweeney was a young Cub Scout attending Middletown’s River Plaza School, David Barrett was one of his boyhood pals. Not best friends exactly, but as close as two young boys could be. “We were like the Little Rascals,” he recalls.Like most 1970’s kids growing up in River Plaza, the boys spent their free time on the Swimming River crabbing, snapper fishing and swimming. In cooler seasons, they rode their bicycles everywhere, pretended to be explorers in the woods around town, and probably teased their fair share of little girls.When school let out in June 1978, 12-year-old Asa spent the summer at home on Navesink River Road. David’s parents were separated; he went off to visit his mother in Texas. David Barrett never returned to River Plaza School that fall.Asa Sweeney: “Things were different back then. All I remember is coming to school in September and our teacher made an announcement: ‘David Barrett is not coming back. He died in Texas. Everyone please open their books.’ There were no grief counselors at that time. But we all knew what happened.”Sweeney grew up and went about his life. He married, had children, and was a boat dealer in Keyport for several years. He lost that business during the last recession when people’s recreational money went wanting.The third grade class at River Plaza School in Middletown during the 1973-74 school year. David Barrett is standing in the middle row, third from the left. His pal Asa Sweeney, in a Cub Scout uniform, stands right next to him. Photo courtesy Asa SweeneyNow 52 and a small business owner, Sweeney tells it this way: “In the fall this year, I went to Fair View Cemetery in Middletown a couple of times looking for my grandmother Anna Kennedy’s grave, but I couldn’t find it. So I thought I’d go to the office and get a map to help me. As I was talking to the woman there, she started writing down where my grandmother was, my aunt was, a friend was. Then I remembered David Barrett, who I used to ride bikes with around here. She gave me his location too.”Scuffling around the gentle cemetery hills, Sweeney couldn’t find where Barrett was buried. The office had no record of a tombstone for Sweeney’s grammar school buddy. He was shocked. “How could he not have a tombstone?” It bothered him, although he’s quick to add “I’m not judging.”A few days later, Sweeney returned to the cemetery office and asked if he could buy a tombstone for David. He was politely informed that he’d have to obtain the permission of the grave owners, listed as his friend’s grandparents from Little Silver. Sweeney discovered they had moved to North Carolina, but had passed away. A literal dead end. Sweeney, undaunted, began following a lead for David’s father in Arizona, but the elder Barrett had also died in the intervening years. He had no idea where in Texas his friend’s mother might have lived, her last name, or if she was even alive anymore. His frustration led to resolve.Asa Sweeney gets serious as he remembers. “David’s parents were never married, it was a broken family right from the start. When he went to see his Mom in Texas over the summer, he and another kid found a shotgun in the house, were playing around and David was accidentally shot in the face and killed.”Sweeney went back to the Fair View Cemetery staff with a proposition. “You know what? My friend has been out there for 38 years, and I want to give him a tombstone.” In early September, Sweeney put up a Facebook notice asking if anyone wanted to contribute toward a grave marker. Seven or eight people from River Plaza School responded with money, and a few others chipped in, too.With about $1,200 in donations, Sweeney went to Uras Monuments in Middletown and was quoted $2,000 for an engraved granite stone. Here’s where this story takes a George Bailey turn.Asa and Karen Sweeney have three sons, two are currently Boy Scouts, and the other is a college student in Boston. They have lots of expenses now and more coming up in the next several years. They talked over what to do about David Barrett’s unmarked grave. This ordinary middle class couple, faced with as many bills as their Toms River neighbors, decided to kick in the remaining $800 themselves for the grave marker. (Pause here while we contemplate this extraordinary generosity.)When asked about his motivations, Sweeney grew silent, his rationale apparently never contemplated. Looking away for several seconds, eyes lowered, he reluctantly whispered, “I just thought it was the thing to do.” (Second pause.)Ill at ease, Sweeney quickly changed the subject to the grave marker with David’s image. Sweeney got it from their third grade class picture, which his 81-year-old mother kept all these years. He was surprised to see himself standing right next to David Barrett in 1973.Sweeny purchased an expensive gravestone this December, and put it on an empty plot of grass for a friend he hadn’t seen in 38 years. A friend he has only a few personal stories about, a boy who was in and out of his life before either of them could understand what life is about.Bill Rockafellow, superintendent of the Fair View Cemetery marveled as he said “It’s very unusual for a nonfamily member to put up a gravestone; maybe it’s happened twice in 10 years that I can remember. As far as David Barrett’s gravesite is concerned, I’ve been here for 35 years and I’ve never seen anybody over there.”Sweeney’s wife, Karen, who never knew David Barrett, provided the poetic inscription gracing his tombstone:No Farewell Words Were Spoken, No Time to Say Goodbye,You Were Gone Before We Knew It, And Only God Knows Why.Forever Young, Forever in Our Hearts.Your Fellow River Plaza ClassmatesMerry Christmas, Asa, Merry Christmas. Somewhere a bell is ringing.last_img read more

Health News that Brings Hope

first_imgWhy do we never see articles claiming that exercise is bad?  Here are some more reasons to get moving.Work your brain:  Who wouldn’t mind a few more brain cells?  EurekAlert reported research from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden that exercise can stimulate the formation of new brain cells.  They think this helps explain why exercise also is good therapy for depression.Save your heart:  It’s not too late to get the cardiac benefits of aerobic exercise.  EurekAlert reported that changes in lifestyle habits, even if done later in life, can improve your risk of preventing heart disease.There were three key findings from the study – first, the benefit of switching to a healthy lifestyle past age 45 became evident even in the 4-year, short-term follow up; second, the beneficial impact of the changes occurred despite the relatively modest changes in health habits; and third, the healthy lifestyle was beneficial when compared to all persons with three or fewer healthy habits, not just in comparison to people with none or one habit.The four lifestyle changes that produced these benefits are: (1) Eat at least 5 fruits and vegetables a day, (2) Exercise 2.5 hours per week, (3) Don’t smoke, and (4) Keep your body mass index between 18 and 35 (see calculator).Other news on health deserves thinking about while you exercise:Amazing recovery:  A man in a persistent vegetative state (PVS) like that of Terry Schiavo came back from the living dead, reported LifeSite.  Doctors had written off accident victim Jesse Ramirez as a “hopeless vegetable,” but he awoke after a month-long coma and was able to sit up, answer questions, and hug.  He is now on the road to recovery.Another adult stem cell success:  Mesenchymal stem cells enhance hearing recovery, reported EurekAlert.  Fibroblast cells in the inner ear were shown to grow and survive in lab studies with stem cells from bone marrow.These stories all seem to have one truism in common: never give up hope.It wasn’t that long ago that scientists told us that brain cells never grow back, that inner ear damage was permanent and unfixable, that people in a coma should be put out to pasture, and that exercise was too late for old people.  These stories should be cause for hope and celebration.  Now get outdoors and get some healthy sweat.(Visited 12 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Human Evolution Timeline Contradicts Human Nature

first_imgEven stupid people don’t sit around in caves for tens of thousands of years.Two evolutionists publishing in PLoS One need to take a refresher course in human nature. In their paper on “cultural evolution” and “technological evolution,” they posit two antithetical propositions: (1) that 100,000 years ago, human ancestors were smart enough to travel the world and share technology with other people groups, (2) nothing significant happened civilization-wise till a few thousand years ago. Science Daily describes ground zero for their story:Since its discovery in the early 1990s, Blombos Cave, about 300 kilometres east of Cape Town, South Africa, has yielded important new information on the behavioural evolution of the human species. The cave site was first excavated in 1991 and field work has been conducted there on a regular basis since 1997 — and is on-going. Blombos contains Middle Stone Age deposits currently dated at between 100,000 and 70,000 years, and a Later Stone Age sequence dated at between 2,000 and 300 years.The researchers from UiB and Witswatersrand have now been looking closer at technology used by different groups in this and other regions in South Africa, such as spear points made of stone, as well as decorated ostrich eggshells, to determine whether there was an overlap and contact across groups of Middle Stone Age humans. How did they make contact with each other? How would contact across groups affect one group? How did the exchange of symbolic material culture affect the group or groups?According to the evolutionists, these early humans in South Africa shared technology, exchanged symbolic material culture, and traveled throughout distant lands, like Africa, Arabia and Europe. What about that is not familiar to all humans?“Contact across groups, and population dynamics, makes it possible to adopt and adapt new technologies and culture and is what describes Homo sapiens. What we are seeing is the same pattern that shaped the people in Europe who created cave art many years later,” [Christopher] Henshilwood [University of the Witwatersrand] says.With his colleague Emmanual Discamps of the University of Bergen, Henshilwood believes humans went through tens of thousands of years of “adapting and evolving” before any of them had thoughts of permanent dwellings outside of caves or took up ranching and farming to make life easier and more predictable.The “cave art many years later” mentioned above dates from 40,000 years before the present, even as far east as Indonesia (see 10/14/14). When discovered at Chauvet Cave in France, the cave art shocked the artistic world, showing that the earliest art was the best (5/09/12). Evidence of music was found even earlier (5/25/12), showing that human creativity was alive and well. Did it really take 30,000 more years for any man to figure out how to ride a horse?How long will it take for enough people to say this is stupid? This evolutionary timeline is ridiculous. We know what people are like. We know what they are capable of. The evidence shows that the people who left traces at Blombos Cave, Chauvet Cave and other locations were just as strong, smart, and creative as we are. Evolutionists admit they made tools, used fire, cooked food, and traveled clear across Asia. It is absurd to believe that they would live in caves and stick to a primitive hunting and gathering lifestyle for tens of thousands of years. It only took 10,000 years or less for mankind to go from Gobekli Tepe (3/10/09) to the moon! Evolutionists want us to believe that humans stayed primitive for 10 times that long. Man went from horse-drawn carriages to self-driving cars in less than two centuries. It doesn’t take long for intelligent human beings to come up with creative ways to do things.We really need that little boy at the right time to cry out that the emperor is naked. The “new clothes” of Emperor Charlie are very elaborate, his enablers tell us. They are crafted of finely-twined jargon and colorful labels, stitched together with threads of empirical misinterpretations on the loom of Darwin/Lyell long ages. But that stuff is not “out there” in the world, it’s only inside the crania of the Darwin Party hacks. Some day, this tale that we are told will release the crowd’s inhibitions, and they will all break out in hearty laughter as the evolutionists’ faces turn blood red with anger and embarrassment. Bring it on. It will be fun to watch. (Visited 49 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
