Jose Mourinho has refused to be drawn on whether Chelsea would look to sign a goalkeeper on an emergency loan if the untested Jamal Blackman becomes the only fit number one.A “long-term” knee injury to first choice Thibaut Courtois means Asmir Begovic will get an extended run in the side, with 21-year old Blackman on the bench.Academy product Blackman has yet to play for the Blues, with his only first-team appearance coming for Middlesbrough against Liverpool in the League Cup during a loan spell last season.When asked if he would sign a new keeper should Begovic get injured, Mourinho said: “I would prefer not to think about that.“Our decision was the third choice would be a young English goalkeeper and we think it is a normal decision and a good decision.“Now Jamal becomes the second. He didn’t play one match in the Premier League or in the Championship but he has good potential.”Mourinho added: “The third goalkeeper is always a complicated situation.“You can be third and not sit on bench all season but you can play a big game. In my first spell Hilario played against Barcelona in the Champions League and he was the third goalkeeper.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook

March 25, 2017, p. 9). The old theory classified dinosaurs into two significantly distinct dinosaur families, those with bird-like hips that point downwards and towards the tail, called the ornithischians, and those with lizard-like hips that point downwards and to the front, called the saurischians. The new theory was based both on newer dinosaur findings that were not available earlier and a newer analysis of dinosaur traits. Instead of focusing on the pelvic bone, as in the old system, Baron and his team analyzed 457 characteristics in 74 species (Baron et al. 2017. A new hypothesis of dinosaur relationships and early dinosaur evolution. Nature 453(7646):501-506; K. Padian. 2017 Dividing the Dinosaurs. Nature. 543(7646):494).These findings forced development of a new dinosaur family tree.They found that the 21 anatomical features they selected can be used to divide the dinosaurs very differently than the older system. As there is no correct way of selecting traits used to classify, selection of other traits could be used to divide dinosaurs into an even different evolutionary tree. Based on these features, the new tree puts T. rex and other theropods on the side of the “bird-hipped” creatures, and the sauropods with those related to Herrerasaurus, a South American bipedal carnivore. These findings forced development of a new dinosaur family tree. This revolution is not unusual in evolutionary biology, and illustrates the tenuousness of classifying life, a field termed taxonomy. Using one set of traits one can produce one taxonomy, and using another different set can produce a very different taxonomy. Thus, taxonomy classifications are somewhat tenuous.The taxon Dinosauria was named in 1842 by paleontologist Sir Richard Owen (1804 -1892), a creationist. Richard Owen was one of the strongest scientific opponents of Darwinism during the age of Darwin. The term dinosaur means terrible lizard due to their size and assumed ferociousness. Paleontologists admit they know almost nothing “about the early evolution of these creatures, and in particular, the evolution of the dinosaurs before the [putative] saurishian-ornithischian split (C. Forster. 2000. “The First Dinosaurs” chapter 2 pp. 41-52 in R. Silverberg. editor, The Ultimate Dinosaur, New York, Simon and Schuster). Thus, new discoveries can revolutionize their conclusions, as occurred in this case. Taxonomy is not only used to determine evolutionary trees, but also to differentiate one species from another. The problem is the species concept is an imperfect and problematic method to classify life. As Cornell trained taxonomist Carol Yoon wrote, species classification was the “gray area of the field” and, more problematically “it was a moving target,” as this new dinosaur study shows (C. Yoon, 2009, Naming Nature: The Clash Between Instinct and Science. New York: Norton. pp. 104-105).
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Soybean Harvest Slowly Wrapping UpRains were relatively light but the effects of a wet fall persisted, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio State Statistician with the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. There were 5 days available for fieldwork for the week ending October 30. Light showers kept harvest of corn and soybeans to a slow pace. Green stalks along with muddy fields were the main obstacles to finishing soybean harvest. Some frosts were noted, but more will be needed to firm up the ground and kill stalks. Cover crops and wheat benefited from the elevation in temperature and soil moisture. Moisture levels of grain harvested over the week averaged 19 percent for corn and 13 percent for soybeans.Click here to read the full report
Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany called out Englands’ World Cup stars Phil Foden and Joel Latibeaudiere after their remarkable comeback victory over Spain to lift the FIFA U-17 World Cup in Kolkata.England overturned a 2-0 lead to win the match 5-2 after an incredible display in the second half display led by City’s Phil Foden and Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi.Foden along with Odoi terrorised the Spain defence from both the flanks which led to a flurry of attacks and four second half goals for England — two of which was from the former itself. While Foden was the star in attack, England captain Latibeaudiere made sure there were no slip ups after they fell two behind thanks to Sergio Gomez’s brace.#FIFAU17WC player of the tournament: @PhilFoden ??? pic.twitter.com/cyNtkTquSF- England (@England) October 28, 2017The duo’s incredible display led to City captain Kompany calling the duo back home early as they will fly off to Naples to face Napoli in the Champions League on Wednesday.”Well done City and well done young England on becoming World Champions. Joel and Phil get yourselves home, we’ve got a game on Wednesday,” said Kompany in a tweet.Well done City and well done young England on becoming World Champions.

Earlier, they won the U-20 World Cup and the U-19 Euros.AP PhotoWhile the duo might not get their first-team professional debuts on Wednesday, Kompany’s tweet shows that they are under the watchful eyes of their captain and the club is keeping a tab of their performances.Foden has already made his debut for City in the United States during their pre-season tour while Latibeaudiere is a good performer for their U-19 side.The former’s tremendous performance also earned him praise from his club manager.”He loves to be at City — we will do everything to help him. He is our player and he will be our player for the next year I hope,” said Pep Guardiola to the Metro.co.uk.The Spaniard also added that his contract runs till 2020 and he is going to be the future of English football.”He’s so important for English football. These guys will grow. I’m pleased that England won the title,” said the Manchester City manager.Foden’s brilliance also prompted French full-back Benjamin Mendy to make the 17-year-old go through a drug test.Phil @PhilFoden drug test needed after that game ???? how good is my bro !!! ?? #Shark- Benjamin Mendy (@benmendy23) October 28, 2017
