She loved playing with friends and animals and enjoyed school at Wolf Hill Elementary School in Ocean­port. This didn’t change even after her diagnosis of a terminal brainstem glioma. On April 27, 2006, four months after her diagnosis, Kortney lost her brave battle with this pediatric brain cancer.To celebrate Kortney’s love of life, the inaugural “Kortney’s Challenge was held in Septem­ber 2006. More than 500 people participated and helped to raise money that was used to build Kortney’s Playground at Wolf Hill Elementary School where Kortney was a third grader. In 2007, The Kortney Rose Foun­dation (KRF) was incorporated as a 501(c)(3)to raise money for pediatric brain cancer research and awareness. The foundation has donated more than $600,000 in the past six years, to the pediatric brain tumor research program at the No. 1 children’s hospital in the nation, the Chil­dren’s Hospital of Philadel­phia (CHOP). Dona­tions from KRF are used in CHOP’s world class Childhood Brain Tumor Tissue Consort­ium which collects bio specimens reflecting the molecular diversity of all pediatric brain tumors and in the Large-Scale Genomics Pro­ject that hunts down the genes behind brain tumors with the goals of using this gene knowledge to guide therapy, devise new tests and treatments.The Two River Times™ is a sponsor of the The Kortney Rose Foundation’s 8th annual Kortney’s Challenge Two Mile Fun Run/Walk.last_img read more

First of Fort Hancock Buildings Are Leased By Private Owners

first_imgBy Liz SheehanSANDY HOOK- After attempts reaching back to 1999, The National Park Service (NPS) announced on May 9 that it has finally issued the first lease on a building in Officers Row in historic Fort Hancock.The lease was issued to Brian Samuelson and Joseph Dorsey.Daphne Yun, acting public affairs officer, said the details of the 60-year lease were not available.Samuelson, of Atlantic Highlands, said that work was being done on the two-family house, known as building 21, which faces Sandy Hook Bay. The goal is to get one section, which has three bedrooms, ready for occupancy this summer.Samuelson said Tuesday that the building would be rented out for monthly or seasonal use, or for holiday vacations, such as Christmas or Thanksgiving. This is consistent with his application, which said the house would be used as “a family residence in the off-season and a weekly, monthly or seasonal rental during the summer months.”Samuelson, an airplane pilot, said that “everything is up in the air,” when asked if he would be using the house as a residence.The application also said that Samuelson was interested in rehabilitating “between one and five” other buildings on Officers Row.When asked if he would be doing other renovations of buildings at the fort, he replied that he would handle “one crisis at a time,” but “I’m keeping an open mind.”The announcement from the park service of the lease quoted Samuelson and Dorsey as saying, “We hope to eventually make accommodations for the general public for summer rentals” which plan to advertise with a website.The park service’s first attempt to lease the buildings was in 1999, when a 60-year lease was given to Rumson developer James Wassel to renovate and commercially develop more than 36 buildings at the fort. The park service said it did not have the funds to restore the buildings covered in the lease. The proposal was met by strong opposition from local residents who formed Save Sandy Hook, a grassroots organization, to oppose the plan.The Wassell lease was cancelled in 2009, when the developer, after a series of extensions, was not able to show he had the financial means to rehabilitate the buildings.In 2012, a notice was put in the Federal Register that an advisory committee would be appointed by the Secretary of the Interior with White House Approval to form plans for Ft. Hancock’s future. The committee, named the Fort Hancock 21st Century Committee, has 23 members, including local elected officials.The interior of the building. Photo: Liz SheehanLast December, a spokesperson for the park service said it was in negotiations with potential lessees for three of the fort buildings.According to the park service website, those leasing the buildings have to pay to renovate the structures, following the standards of historic preservation properties. The proposed rent would be offset by the cost of renovation.The terms of the lease would be based on fair market value, John Warren, External Affairs Officer at the NPS, said.According to the NPS the Fort Hancock has been a major factor in the defense of the New York harbor since colonial days. It served as a proving ground and was renamed in 1895 and deactivated in 1974.last_img read more

Half-time: Fulham 0 Sheffield Wednesday 1

first_imgFulham trailed at the break to a well-worked 10th-minute goal by Fernando Forestieri.The Italian striker swept a low right-footed shot in off the far post after fine build-up play around the edge of the box involving Barry Bannan and Gary Hooper.Fulham had started brightly but were left shaken by the goal and struggled to get going in the final third.Their best chance of the half came from a Stefan Johansen corner, but Kevin McDonald sent a powerful header over the bar.Fulham were fortunate to survive when Gary Hooper slid the ball past the far post with just the keeper to beat, before Forestieri slashed an effort wide.Whites boss Slavisa Jokanovic selected the same team for the third game in a row, having beaten Huddersfield and Brentford.Fulham: Button; Fredericks, Kalas, Sigurdsson, Malone; Johansen, McDonald; Cairney, Aluko, Piazon; Martin.Subs: Bettinelli, Odoi, Ream, Sessegnon, Parker, Ayite, Smith.   Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Urologists: Men, Forget the Blue Pill!

Findings vs Surmisings in Astronomy

first_imgThe Galex satellite (Galaxy Evolution Explorer) found “bright features” with an ultraviolet glow in the outskirts of a spiral galaxy, reported the BBC News.  What are they?  Scientists “think” they are large clusters of stars.  How much is known, and how much is interpreted?    The region imaged is the dark area around spiral galaxy M83 in the constellation Hydra.  Symmetrical arms of glowing hydrogen appear in the periphery of the more familiar central spiral.  If these are starry regions, the discovery is surprising: “The finding has surprised astronomers because the galactic periphery was assumed to lack high concentrations of ingredients needed to form stars.”  Each pixel in the Galex image would have to contain hundreds of thousands of stars.  It is impossible, therefore, for Galex to actually resolve them.  The Galex researchers compared their image with radio telescope data from the Very Large Array in New Mexico.  Did the VLA find the elusive stars?Light emitted in the radio portion of the electromagnetic spectrum can be used to locate gaseous hydrogen atoms.  These are seen as a good sign that the molecular form of the gas is also present.  And it is from this molecular gas that stars are born.    When the astronomers combined the radio and the Galex data, they found that they matched up.    “Clearly, the basic ingredients for star formation are out in those regions,” said Dr [Mark] Seibert [Carnegie Observatories].The radio telescope did not resolve stars, either.  The leap from glowing gas to large clusters of stars was bridged by theory.  From there, another leap into cosmology was made, but this time it was labeled a speculation:The astronomers speculate that the young stars seen in far-flung regions of M83 could have formed under conditions resembling those of the early Universe, a time when space was not yet enriched with dust and heavier elements.    But this process is not well understood.Despite the disclaimer, the above paragraph still claimed the stars were “seen” when, in actuality, the radio and UV instruments merely showed the presence of atomic hydrogen gas, from which they assumed molecular gas was present, from which they assumed stars would form, even though regions of this low density were not expected to have stars.    The Galex satellite is operated by JPL and Caltech.  The original press release is on the Galex home page.Maybe there are stars there.  These astronomers did little to ground their interpretations in empirical data.  Not a single star was observed in this gas, yet we are supposed to believe there are hundreds of thousands of them in each pixel?  Are we supposed to respect a pure speculation about the early universe resting on the admission that “this process is not well understood”?  Try that with gnome theory.  “We did not find any gnomes, but we think we found some gas they emit.  We didn’t expect to find that gas in the desert.  It might shed light, however, on how gnomes arose on the early earth, before the land was enriched with toadstools.”    If a scientist is not sure of something, let him say so or keep his speculations to himself.  Today’s scientists often do a very poor job of discriminating between observation and interpretation.  News reporters shift between them seamlessly and shamelessly.  It is up to the reader, and to sites like this, to sift the shift and lift the fogma.(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Durban ready for COP 17

first_img21 November 2011Durban is ready to welcome over 15 000 delegates and more than 10 000 observers from over 190 countries for the UN Climate Change Conference kicking off in exactly one week, says Durban/Ethekwini Mayor James Nxumalo.The 17th Conference of the Parties (COP 17) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change takes place at Durban’s International Convention Centre from 28 November to 9 December.“As these delegates, observers and NGOs arrive, we must ensure that we are prepared to host them in the warmest way possible – warm people, warm food, warm beaches, warmth all around,” Nxumalo told journalists on Saturday.“But being the warmest place to be also signals to us that our earth is getting warmer, and we must do something about that!”Opportunity to showcase the cityThe city will ensure that when delegates leave the climate change talks, they will be well versed with Durban’s Greening Projects.Nxumalo said hosting COP 17 meant a massive boost for the city’s, and the province’s, economy.“We will be benefitting enormously through the huge international exposure and the many economic benefits. One example is our accommodation. I am sure that this will be fully booked for the event period, with over 160 000 bed-nights of accommodation being sold.”As the host city of COP 17, there is a golden opportunity for Durban to communicate its achievements to local and international media.“Durban’s bold response to the challenges of climate change has positioned the city as a global leader in the field of climate protection planning,” Nxumalo said.‘A truly African city’“It is a truly African city, a place of rich contrasts where sophisticated, first-world urban development and high density townships give way to undisturbed rural landscapes where people follow traditional African lifestyles.”During COP 17, the mayor will be sharing experiences and strategies to improve climate change mitigation and adaptation with mayors from around the world.Over 550 volunteers will be deployed throughout the city during the conference. The volunteers will wear an official, easily identifiable green-and-white COP 17 Volunteer uniform, and will be stationed throughout the city, at shuttle pick-up points and bicycle nodes.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

The Most Exciting Camera Rumors of 2017

first_imgAnother new year, another new round of juicy camera conjecture. Here’s your officially unofficial 2017 camera rumor roundup!Expectations are high for camera releases in 2017. Just like in years past, we’ve rounded up the latest camera rumors that have appeared online. While a lot of last year’s camera rumors came to fruition, it seems a few might have been a bit too optimistic. So, keep in mind, there are no guarantees here — only hopes and dreams. Here are the best rumors for cameras we may see released in 2017.Canon Camera RumorsWell, last year turned out to be a bust for the Canon 5D Mark IV, but they did roll out some new Cine cameras and updated a majority of the existing line. Here are the latest Canon camera rumors.Canon Cinema EOS C100 Mark III4K video recording up to 60fps1080p up to 120fpsSuper 35mm CMOS SensorPL + EF MountISO 100-102,400CFast + SD Card SlotsXF-AVC/MPEG-4 AVC/H.264/ProResRAW capture with external recorderNew anamorphic lens announced alongside its releaseTo be announced in April (ahead of NAB)Rumor via Rumors Dot Camera/Canon Watch /Additional SourcesCanon EOS 1D C Mark II8K video recording up to 30fps4K up to 60fps1080p up to 120fps15 StopsEF MountISO 409,000Dual CFastRumor via Canon RumorsCanon EOS 6D Mark II4K up to 30fps1080p up to 60fps25 MP sensorDual SD Card slotsArticulating screenNew super-telephoto lensTo be announced Spring/Summer 2017Rumor via Canon RumorsCanon EOS Rebel T7i, T7s1080p up to 60fps24MPMax ISO 25,600Wi-Fi, NFCTo be announced in January/FebruaryRumor via Canon RumorsCanon EOS M(?)Full-frame mirrorless camera4K video recordingEF-M MountNew prime lensTo be announced in Q4 2017Rumor via Canon Rumors/Additional SourcesSony Camera RumorsSony had another killer year, with their cameras increasing in popularity and their sensors being used in everything from iPhones to Nikons. The Alpha series looks like it will get a new flagship camera in the a9 (also called the a7RIII), as well as an update to the the a7. Sony has already announced the FS7 Mark II, and with their increasingly quick new camera turnaround, we could hear about an FS5 Mark II in the coming months.(Some specs are pretty realistic and on par with current models, as manufacturers like Sony, Fujifilm, and Nikon all suffered delays after the 2016 earthquake in Kumamoto.)Sony XDCAM PXS-FS5 Mark IISuper 35-Sized CMOS SensorSony E Mount6K up to 30fps4K up to 60fps1080p up to 240fpsDual XQD Memory Card SlotsSony Alpha a9/a7R III70-80 MP full-frame sensorDual XQD card slotsInternal 4K up to 60fps1080p up to 120fpsISO 102,400Unlimited RAW burst (based on memory card size)Shipping Q4 2017Rumor via The New Camera / Sony Alpha Rumors / Additional SourcesSony Alpha a7 IIIInternal 4K up to 30fps1080p up to 60fpsISO 102,400To be announced Q2 2017Rumor via Sony Alpha RumorsSony Alpha a670024.2MP sensor4K Video up to 30fps1080p up to 60fpsWi-Fi with NFCISO 51200 RED Camera RumorsYou can’t ever really guess what RED is up to. Even when expectations are over the top, the manufacturer tends to exceed them. 2016 saw most RED users getting the ability to shoot up to 8K across the DSMC2 line. Current major directors are using advanced prototypes, like on James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Michael Bay’s commercial and feature work on Transformers: The Last Knight, and David Fincher’s new Mindhunter project for Netflix.Unless you’re an A-list talent (or good friends with one), you probably won’t be getting your hands on any major new RED cameras this year. You can expect to see some more updates to the existing lines.What’s your favorite 2017 camera rumor? Have plans to buy any of these? Let us know in the comments below. Fujifilm Camera RumorsFujifilm hopped into 4K video with the X-T2. There aren’t many rumblings on the next camera with video capabilities, outside of a new color body for the X-T2. (It’s supposedly silver.)Rumor via FujirumorsBlackmagic Camera RumorsBlackmagic is still doing some major overhauls to the URSA Mini firmware. As far as hardware, there’s not been much noise related to any upcoming camera announcements. There is potential for an updated Pocket Cinema Camera, but we’ve been expecting that for a while.
