I’m wondering why the Jail Report for the week of December 12, 2019 through December 18, 2019 was not published in the paper? Were there no arrest made in the city during that period of time? Can someone please advise on how to obtain that information?
So clearly there's someone at your office posting onto Facebook but no one can answer the phone. I've called multiple numbers for many days with no answer and no call backs. I'm blown away. Can someone please tell me how to post a classified.
The recent story about the number of Marion County fans at the Marion-Pelhem game is ridiculous. Firstly, what is the point? If Pelhem wouldve won out and played actual competition they wouldve been ranked higher but they were not. So, quoting someone saying (if it was in Pelhem people wouldve been standing every where) is a mute point. The game had no chance of being played there. Also, Marion had a very large number of people standing around the endzone fence. Second thing, the author conveniently used a picture of just the reserved seating in the middle of the Marion stands. The home stands at marion are 3 times the size of the away stands. To the left and right of this picture was quite full. I was in the reserved seats myself. Idk why it's that way but it is. The photo is misrepresenting the facts. Also..... who cares! We will be at Georgia State stadium saturday cheering our boys on!
Science and Climate Change The Main Stream Media trumpets (almost endlessly) that the science regarding climate change is "settled" as evidenced by 97% of climatologists who have reached a "consensus" about anthropogenic (human-induced) global warming. What the press does not stress is that this like-mindedness among these experts is based almost entirely upon computer simulations (GCMs or climate models) and not on any significant experimental data or evidence. Even more distressing is that many (most?) climate advocates see the current scientific findings as fixed and they reject out of hand any actual contrary research results. Any historian of science will quickly belie this unsound position. A couple of solid examples should suffice to dismiss this misbegotten belief. During the late 19th century the entire scientific community accepted as fact the necessary existence of a "luminiferous ether" through which photons from the Sun traveled to reach the Earth. Then in 1887 Michelson & Morley of Case Western Reserve conducted a single experiment that showed that no such "ether" existed. Thus, all the prior evidence and belief was discarded. [Note: Interestingly, it was M&M's research that set Einstein on his search concerning relativity.] The bottom line is that the 97% "consensus" concerning the "settled" science regarding the existence of a luminiferous ether was wrong. Another excellent example is "continental drift". During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, virtually every scientific expert insisted that the position of the Earth's continents was fixed. This scientific conclusion was based upon the observation that although granite existed on the continents, the seafloor seemed to be composed of denser basalt, and the prevailing concept during the first half of the twentieth century was that there were two types of crust, named "sial" (continental type crust) and "sima" (oceanic type crust). Furthermore, it was supposed that a static shell of strata was present under the continents. In 1947, a team of scientists using an array of instruments confirmed the existence of a rise in the central Atlantic Ocean and found that the floor of the seabed beneath the layer of sediments consisted of basalt, not the granite which is the main constituent of continents. They also found that the oceanic crust was much thinner than continental crust. All these new findings raised important and intriguing questions. Beginning in the 1950s, scientists using magnetic instruments (magnetometers) began recognizing odd magnetic "striping" across the ocean floor. After the maps with this "zebra pattern" of magnetic stripes were published, the connection between seafloor spreading and these patterns were correctly linked to patterns of geomagnetic reversals. Again, the 97% "consensus" regarding the "settled" science of fixed continents had to be discarded. Anthropogenic (human-induced) climate change has been falsified In 2014, a group of Chinese researchers found evidence suggesting that the current warm phase of a 500 year cycle could terminate over several decades, ushering in a 250-year cool phase. Then on July 3, 2019, Science Daily announced that new evidence suggests that high-energy particles from space known as galactic cosmic rays affect the Earth's climate by increasing cloud cover, causing an "umbrella effect." When galactic cosmic rays increased during the Earth's last geomagnetic reversal transition 780,000 years ago, the umbrella effect of low-cloud cover led to high atmospheric pressure in Siberia, causing the East Asian winter monsoon to become stronger. This is evidence that galactic cosmic rays influence changes in the Earth's climate. "The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has discussed the impact of cloud cover on climate in their evaluations, but this phenomenon has never been considered in climate predictions due to the insufficient physical understanding of it," stated lead investigator, Professor Hyodo. "This study provides an opportunity to rethink the impact of clouds on climate. When galactic cosmic rays increase, so do low clouds, and when cosmic rays decrease clouds do as well, so climate warming may be caused by an opposite-umbrella effect. The umbrella effect caused by galactic cosmic rays is important when thinking about current global warming as well as the warm period of the medieval era." Subsequently, on Aug. 11, 2019, it was reported that a new study had found winters in northern China have been warming since 4,000BC. The study found that winds from Arctic Siberia have been growing weaker, the conifer tree line has been retreating north, and there has been a steady rise in biodiversity in a general warming trend that continues today. It appears to have little to do with the increase in greenhouse gases which began with the industrial revolution, according to the researchers. Lead scientist Dr. Wu Jing, from the Key Laboratory of Cenozoic Geology and Environment at the Institute of Geology and Geophysics, part of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said the study had found no evidence of human influence on northern China’s warming winters. “Driving forces include the sun, the atmosphere, and its interaction with the ocean,” Wu said. “We have detected no evidence of human influence." Then the web site, Bioengineer.org, on Nov. 6, 2019, cited three papers from the Federal University of Sao Paolo, Brazil which partially affirm the studies from Japan and China. This research insists that "The composition (of marine) sediments carried by rivers from the mainland to the ocean can be used as a basis for calculating variables such as temperature, precipitation, and marine salinity. In the context of ongoing global climate change, the study of the past is fundamental to validating the accuracy of the climate models used to make predictions." SUMMARY The world-famous philosopher of science, Karl Popper, insisted that to be a valid scientific theory any hypothesis must be falsifiable. This includes the widely held conjecture of anthropogenic (human-caused) climate change. In short, a single set of scholarly findings that is not explained by the premise of man-made global warming which is attributable to the burning of fossil fuels can falsify this entire body of scientific speculation and this has now occurred. Today, six peer-reviewed scientific papers that were conducted by six separate groups of expert investigators from four different universities in three separate countries and which have all been published in eminent peer-reviewed scholarly journals have found no evidence to support the assertion regarding human-induced climate change. Instead, all six groups independently found that the warming that has happened was almost entirely attributable to galactic cosmic rays that affect the quantity of the Earth's low hanging clouds. These expert investigators call this canopy or blanket the "umbrella effect". The bottom line is that the entire climate change hysteria has now been falsified and is untrue. These six experimental results have shown that the IPCC and its computer simulation models (GCMs) are not valid.
