first_imgTHE man who died in a tragic accident in Kilcar last night was John Campbell Jnr, the son of the Finn Harps stalwart John Campbell.The popular 28-year-old was killed when a car he was working on collapsed on top of him around 8.30pm last night. Gardaí are carrying out an investigation as a matter of course but it’s understood officers are treating the incident as a tragic accident.This morning his father John, a former Harps chairman who works as the club’s secretary and Director of Finn Harps Schools, posted a picture of him with his son together on his Facebook page.He wrote: “Memories that no-one can steal.”The entire sporting community in the county has expressed its sympathies to the Campbell family, their wider family circle and the community of Kilcar. The thoughts of everyone at Donegal Daily are with the Campbell family at this time. FINN HARPS’ STALWART EXPRESSES SADNESS AT DEATH OF SON IN ACCIDENT was last modified: February 5th, 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:finn harpsJohn Campbelltragic accidentlast_img read more

Hairy Bacteria Walk and Talk

first_imgLittle hair-like projections on some bacteria, nearly invisible with light microscopes, are not just for decoration.  They do amazing things – as a pair of recent discoveries brought to light.  They help bacteria walk and talk.But can they dance?  Bacteria swim, but they also land on surfaces – and when they do, they put out little legs and walk.  This fascinating discovery, discussed on Science Daily, was made at UCLA.  The legs are called “type IV pili” in Pseudomonas, some of which cause diseases in humans.  “What enables this upright walking are appendages called type IV pili, which function as the analog of legs,” the article said.  “What’s more, walking allows P. aeruginosa to move with trajectories optimized for surface exploration, so that they can forage more effectively.”Social network:  Some bacteria are “wired” with their own electrical intranet.  This was announced also by Science Daily in an article titled, “Bacteria Grow Electrical Hair: Specialized Bacterial Filaments Shown to Conduct Electricity.”  Tiny microfilaments extend out between bacteria to provide a means of communication and mutual support – a kind of cellular FaceBook system.  These create large “living biological circuits” (see Live Science) made of “biological nanowires” that function just like social networks.  “This is the first measurement of electron transport along biological nanowires produced by bacteria,” a researcher said.    Science Daily explained, “A bacterial nanowire looks like a long hair sticking out of a microbe’s body.  Like human hair, it consists mostly of protein.”  Imagine if people communicated through their nanowires hair.  For bacteria, these networks are like a lifeline.  They exchange electrons, allowing bacteria to “breathe” and also communicate.    Microbes were already known to communicate with chemical signals.  The nanowire networks apparently provide a faster channel.  Said one of the researchers of the wired net, in stressful situations or when survival is at stake, “You want the telegraph, you don’t want smoke signals.”  One can only guess at what they are saying.  Do they speak in Morse code?  “The current hypothesis is that bacterial nanowires are in fact widespread in the microbial world,” he added.Humans tend to fear bacteria because of the few nasty kinds that cause disease, but many of these mechanisms at work in the microbial world may actually be beneficial.  That growing feeling extends to viruses, too.  Science Daily in another article spoke of a burgeoning field of “physical virology” that might allow doctors to employ viruses as “natural nanoparticles” for targeting therapeutic agents to cells, and another article in Science Daily discussed using “friendly bacteria” to treat bone cancer.  Could the germs we fear have had a function for good in the beginning?  Food for thought.  Answers in Genesis presented a lengthy article examining possible pathways how some beneficial E. coli and other bacteria might have degenerated into agents of disease.Darwin was obsessed with the appearance of natural evil in the world, because his acquaintance with natural theology did not take the Fall and the curse of sin seriously.  William Paley, for all his good reasoning, tried to use induction from the happy things in nature to a benevolent God.  Darwin saw design, but then looked at the suffering and disease everywhere.  Since he could not reconcile parasitism and disease with a benevolent God, he fell away from Paley’s view that originally was a strong influence in his thinking, and decided that design was just an illusion.  So he came up with an even more miracle-working god – chance!    Without understanding sin and judgment, one cannot correlate the irrefutable evidence of design with the existence of evil.  The world is like a bombed city, with relics of its original goodness clearly evident, but with the marks of judgment just as clear.  The Creator does not plan to make this world a better place.  He is going to destroy it and build a new one (II Peter 3:3-13).  In the meantime, He has left enough marks of good design to put individuals on trial without excuse for denying His existence (Romans 1:16-22), and yet in His grace has provided enough happiness to motivate all people to seek Him (Acts 14:8-18, Acts 17:22-30).  The gospel is a means to escape this present evil world destined for judgment, for a new creation in which righteousness dwells (II Peter 3:11-13).    Evolutionists mock at this, of course.  OK, take their answer: design is just an illusion.  Machinery emerges.  Weird stuff just happens sometimes (10/03/2010).  Evil doesn’t exist.  Everything came from nothing and is going nowhere.  Morality is a myth because it came from an undirected process of natural selection (10/10/2010).  Be consistent, now, and thank that E. coli when it lays you low, because it is merely showing it is more fit than you.  And no fair taking a stand on any moral issue, including the environment and climate change: the words ought and should are not in the Darwin Dictionary.  Take a random walk in Afghanistan; maybe the mutation-enhancing bullets will do you some good, whatever that word means.(Visited 59 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Rosetta and the Stone

first_imgA historic comet rendezvous mission begins today after ten years in space.The Rosetta spacecraft, launched in 2004 by the European Space Agency, after 5 trips around the sun, is poised to orbit its prey: Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.  The craft will orbit the comet’s nucleus, if all goes well, and then will land a probe named Philae on its surface in November. tells about the mission with an infographic.  Interested skywatchers can follow the progress on the ESA’s Rosetta page.Update: Success!  Rosetta entered orbit successfully on August 6.  First stunning close-ups of the comet have been posted by New Scientist, BBC News and aren’t too many “space firsts” left in this mature part of the space age.  Although Giotto photographed Comet Halley’s nucleus in 1986, and Deep Impact crashed a probe on a comet in 2005, and Stardust collected comet dust and returned it to Earth in 2006, this will be the first mission to land a probe gently on a comet surface in an attempt to understand comets better.In 2000, the NEAR spacecraft touched down on asteroid Eros in an unscheduled soft landing at the end of its mission, but communication was lost on contact (see NEAR-Shoemaker page).  The only other solar system bodies on which soft landings have succeeded are the Moon, Venus, Mars and Titan.Another historic first to anticipate will be the first flyby of Pluto by the New Horizons spacecraft on July 14 next year.As we reported 1/13/03 before its launch, the Rosetta orbiter contains a disk inscribed with the first three chapters of Genesis 1 in 1,000 languages — a true Rosetta Stone for the ages.  It’s been a decade-long wait; this should be an important and very interesting mission to watch from now through November.  Space firsts are a good occasion to interest children in science.(Visited 17 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
