TORONTO – Just like they have had to do for the previous six playoff games, the Warriors will play the Toronto Raptors in Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday lacking one central star player.They will be without Kevin Durant.“Kevin is not going to play Sunday,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said on Friday. “We have been sort of holding out hope, but I might as well just say it now. He’s not practicing today. We’ll have a practice tomorrow. But he’s still progressing. It’s near impossible for him …

There’s the smoking-gun crater in the Yucatan, isn’t there? This theory gets treatment as “received knowledge” by the press. It’s simply assumed, as in PhysOrg‘s headline, “Asteroid that wiped out dinosaurs may have nearly knocked off mammals, too.” This article claims that early marsupials perished in the flames of the impact, somehow giving placental mammals their chance. Result: humans.Dr. Steve Brusatte of the University of Edinburgh’s School of GeoSciences, an author on the report, said: “The classic tale is that dinosaurs died out and mammals, which had been waiting in the wings for over 100 million years, then finally had their chance. But our study shows that many mammals came perilously close to extinction. If a few lucky species didn’t make it through, then mammals may have gone the way of the dinosaurs and we wouldn’t be here.“Not everyone has been convinced by the impact hypothesis (2/10/13). Another group, noticing the huge volcanic deposits in Indian known as the Deccan Traps, has fingered volcanoes as the agent of dinosaur demise. Those eruptions blanketed 123,000 cubic miles with lava. Supporters of the volcano hypothesis, championed for years by Princeton geologist Gerta Keller, also claim that dinosaurs were on the decline tens of thousands of years before the Chicxulub impact event.Now, according to Princeton researchers, better dates from zircons have become available that put the extinction closer to the time the India volcanoes were erupting. “An incredible outpouring of lava 66 million years ago could have set off environmental changes that killed off the dinosaurs,” Becky Oskin writes for Live Science. The Princeton geologists do not deny the meteor strike, but assign it a finishing-off role to an extinction that was already underway. The most intense phase of the Deccan Traps eruptions was 66.29 million years ago, according to the newer zircon dating methods. It had started a million years before the K-T impact, according to PhysOrg, but then became more intense 250,000 years prior.What’s not often stated by the meteorite theorists is that the extinction occurred 30,000 years after the impact. That’s not quite the instantaneous die-off pictured in the TV shows.The volcano theorists have their troubles, too. The dates were calculated from selective zircons at particular layers. “We don’t know which of the flows correlates with the extinction,” geologist Blair Schoene said, despite the confident-sounding claims in the articles. “There’s a lot more work to be done.”One person in the comments wondered why the huge lava flows that cover much of Oregon are not associated with an extinction event. The Princeton team, on the other hand, claims that no other extinction is associated with an impact. Maybe it was worms that did the dinosaurs in (10/24/06).Evolutionary explanations for dinosaur extinction have evolved over the years from one consensus to another in a random walk. Impact craters are real, and lava flows are real, but the dates and associations with extinctions are flimsy. It’s all moot, anyway, now that soft tissue from multiple dinosaurs has been discovered throughout the past decade. A few dinosaurs survived the Flood, but were finished off as pests by dragon slayers like St. George. That explains the selective extinction (why would butterflies survive but not dinosaurs?) as well as the survival of the soft tissue; it’s not millions of years old.

AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie praised both Gennaro Gattuso and Gonzalo Higuain, despite their recent strugglesThe pressure has been growing on Gattuso’s shoulder’s in his first full campaign in charge of the Milan team following a run of just two wins in their last eight Serie A outings.This drop in form has seen Milan relinquish their hold of fourth-place in the standings to Lazio. Aside from that, the Rossoneri suffered a shock group stage exit in the Europa League.But Kessie insists Gattuso is a fantastic manager who keeps them all focused on their objectives.“Gattuso’s a great coach,” Kessie told Calcio2000.“In general, when you play, the coach always likes you… but he’s an honest guy. When it’s time to work, you work.Maurizio Sarri satisfied despite Juventus’ draw at Fiorentina Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Maurizio Sarri was satisfied with Juventus’ performance on Saturday afternoon after finishing a tough game at Fiorentina 0-0.“With him, you have to be focused. If you don’t give everything, he yells at you. Once our work is finished, however, he leaves you free to do whatever you want.”The Ivory Coast international is also certain that Juventus loanee Higuain will help them achieve Champions League qualification after recently ending his two-month goal drought against SPAL.“Higuain’s a great champion,” added Kessie.“He’s very good and a true professional. We believe in him so much and we know he can take us forward.”Milan will return from the Italian winter break on January 12 away to Sampdoria in a last-16 Coppa Italia clash.
