HARPS TITLE HOPES HIT AS WEXFORD WIN CRUCIAL MATCH AGAINST UCD

first_imgSOCCER: Finn Harps title ambitions have been dealt a blow after league leaders Wexford Youths earned a crucial win over UCD in Ferrycarrig earlier this evening. A late goal from Shane Dunne secured all three points and ensures that Wexford now go SEVEN points clear with just FOUR games left to play.Two more wins will secure the league title for Wexford, but they will face UCD again next week in Dublin.It looks likely that Harps will have to reach the Premier Division via the play-off route. There likely opponents will be UCD who currently occupy third position in the league.Harps play Cobh Ramblers in Cork next Saturday before they host UCD the following Friday at Finn Park.There will be plenty of twists and turns in the run-in but it will take a Wexford collapse now in the final four matches for Harps to have any hopes of gaining automatic promotion by winning the league.  HARPS TITLE HOPES HIT AS WEXFORD WIN CRUCIAL MATCH AGAINST UCD was last modified: September 11th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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)last_img read more

Roses Are Red, Darwinists Are Blue

first_imgRoses have a special pigment molecule, a particular form of anthocyanin, responsible for all the rich red-to-blue shades in the petals that delight gardeners and attract pollinating insects.  This molecule is different from the pigments in every other flowering plant; it is glycosylated at two positions instead of one.2  A single enzyme does the job at both points.  Without the glycosylation reaction at both ends, the molecule is unstable and cannot be soluble in water in the vacuoles of the cells in which it operates.    A team of Japanese scientists investigated how this double-glycosylation reaction system might have evolved.  They could find no intermediate.  Reporting in Nature,1 they said that while other flowers use derivatives from a singly-glycosylated form, “this is evolutionarily precluded in roses by their different glycosylation pattern, which may be unique to members of the Rosaceae” (emphasis added in all quotes).  They also stated with puzzlement,It is a mystery why this particular glycosyltransferase evolved independently in roses.  The novelty of the RhGT1 enzyme therefore lies not only in its ability to catalyse glycosylation at two different sites on the anthocyanidin molecule but also in its apparent absence from other species.They prepared a phylogenetic tree based on this type of pigment-preparing enzyme family, but it ended up with the rose family on a branch all by itself.1Ogata et al., “Plant biochemistry: Anthocyanin biosynthesis in roses,” Nature, 435, 757-758 (9 June 2005) | doi: 10.1038/nature435757a.2Glycosylation replaces an OH (hydroxyl) group with a glucoside.  This is performed by an enzyme called a glycosyltransferase, in the case of roses, RhGT1.Here is a small gap, but a gap nonetheless; no evidence for the evolution of this complex molecule and the enzyme that knows how to operate it – just an unconfirmed prediction from evolutionary theory.  Surprised?  Question: was evolutionary theory of any value in this investigation?(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Mens Volleyball Ohio State loses third straight against No 1 Long Beach

Sophomore Kyle Skinner gets ready to serve the ball against George Mason at the game on Jan. 18 at St. John Arena in Columbus. Credit: Ethan Clewell | Senior Reporter.After losing two straight matches without winning a set, having to face the No. 1 team in the country on their home court is not the best way to end a losing streak. The struggling Buckeyes (4-8) were able to keep sets close early, but couldn’t gain enough momentum to get back in the match as No.1 Long Beach State (12-0) cruised to a victory in three sets, 25-19, 25-18, 25-21. The Buckeyes took their first lead of the match in the third set after an attack error by Long Beach State gave them a 4-3 lead. Back-to-back aces by junior libero Chase Moothart bookended a three-point run that brought the Buckeyes over the 20-point threshold for the first time in the match. But a kill by senior outside hitter TJ DeFalco and an Ohio State service error closed out the third set, 25-21, handing the Buckeyes their third-consecutive straight-set loss. Ohio State was unable to establish a rhythm on offense in large part due to errors. The Buckeyes committed 33 errors on the night, 19 service and 14 attack, while the Beach had only 24, 16 service and 8 attack. Though the Buckeyes tallied 30 kills on the night, the 14 errors on 61 attacks limited them to a .250 hitting percentage. Freshman libero Parker Mikesch had 26 assists and two digs as he continues his campaign as the Buckeyes full-time setter while senior Sanil Thomas is injured. Freshman outside hitter Sean Ryan provided 10 kills for Ohio State, helping to fill in as a point finisher for the Buckeyes in the midst of sophomore opposite hitter Jake Hanes’ absence due to injury. Ryan got off to a hot start in the first set with two kills, helping the Buckeyes keep pace with the Beach. But a kill by senior opposite hitter Kyle Ensing and an attack error by Ryan gave Long Beach State a 4-2 lead, which they would stretch to as many as seven points en route to a 25-19 first set victory. Ensing and DeFalco combined for 21 kills, five digs, and an ace, leading the team to a .475 hitting percentage. Both teams had their share of success from the service stripe, as the Buckeyes totalled three and the Beach came up with five. After a close start to the second set, Long Beach used four Buckeye errors and an ace by redshirt senior middle blocker Nick Amado for five straight-points, taking a 16-9 lead. Though Ryan contributed five kills and sophomore libero Luke Meidel added an ace, Long Beach State used kills by Ensing and senior setter Josh Tuaniga to close out the set, 25-18. Ohio State returns to conference play against Lindenwood at 8 p.m. on Friday in Saint Charles, Missouri. read more
