LFA Cellcom League Round 9 Heats Up Today

first_imgRound 9 of the LFA Cellcom Division One soccer league continues this afternoon at five centers with pairings that are expected to improve the chances of teams who will show much aggression at scoring goals.The matches start at the Blue Field with BYC FC taking on Ganta Black Star at 4p.m. In their own backyard, expect BYC to teach the Ganta boys some lessons in soccer. At 3p.m. at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium today, league leaders Invincible Eleven will clash with Monrovia Club Breweries in a match that will decide whether the Yellow Boys can maintain their hold on the league.Invincible Eleven’s president Sam Gibson will be in full attendance, along with board chairman Eugene Shannon to provide the needed encouragement to the boys to grab the points needed to keep the team’s hold on the top as they masterminded the victory over LPRC-Oilers last week.“Every game is another formation,” President Gibson told reporters after their narrow 1-0 victory over LPRC-Oilers. Now playing at their favorite venue, Breweries will have to fight with all their strength.At 5p.m. at the same venue, Jubilee FC will settle scores with Mighty Blue Angels. Angels are not blue and it is not sure whether that is the reason this particular team is not making much progress in the league.Perhaps, some football agents can make a move to Ghana to make sure some football hungry investors are on the lookout for a team to promote. At least someone close to Red Lions could be of great help of the management of Mighty Angels wants to consider such an option.LPRC-Oilers will play in Cape Mount against Keitrace FC at 4p.m. The Oilers stumbled against Invincible Eleven in their last match and will likely not allow another misfortune to come their way. Keitrace FC’s Mamie Kpoto will be yelling herself hoarse at the end of the game, if things don’t go her way.Watanga will clash with NPA-Anchors in Harbel and name changers, Red Lions will meet LISCR FC at the Nancy B. Doe Sports Stadium in Kakata. Coach Jerry Johnson’s Anchors are determined to make a name but whether Watanga can prevent them is what soccer fans will be asking themselves.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Trio wins re-election in L.A. college district

first_img(818) 713-3664160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Three incumbents on the Los Angeles Community College District board won re-elected to a third term while a fourth board member was forced into a runoff, according to unofficial election returns released today. Board members Mona Field, Warren Furutani and Sylvia Scott-Hayes each secured solid wins, capturing at least 65 percent of the votes cast in their respective districts. Each was elected in 1999. But incumbent Georgia Mercer, who represents District 5, received just 46 percent of the vote, forcing her into a runoff with Roy Burns, a 60-year-old retired sheriff’s deputy from Reseda, who got 32 percent. Challenger Mike Rives, of Los Angeles, received 11 percent and Hanna Hajjar, a Tarzana engineer, 10 percent. Burns was among a slate of four Republican challengers who ran against what they called the board’s mishandling of bond measures passed by voters in 2001 and 2003. Guy Mato, a 49-year-old Gardena real estate broker who ran against county Supervisor Yvonne B. Burke in 2004, was looking to unseat Scott-Hayes, 55. “The four of us who have been on the board have all been supporting each other,” Scott-Hayes said. Jozef Essavi, 32, of Winnetka, a former Los Angeles Valley College student, challenged Field, 53, of Eagle Rock. Hector Gurule, a 32-year-old computer consultant from Alhambra, faced off against Furutani. last_img read more

first_imgDONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUEREPORTS SUNDAYBrian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionCranford United 3 Donegal Town 1 Cranford got their first win of the league campaign with a impressive performance against a big physical Donegal Town team. The first half hour was a tight affair with few chances but in the 34th minute Donegal took the lead when centre forward Benny Byrne robbed the Cranford sweeper and cooly slotted home . Cranford should have levelled on the stroke of half time when Arthur Lynch headed down a corner but Shaun Mc Ilwaine somehow put the ball over the bar. Cranford started the 2nd half brightly and pushed Donegal back. After missing a couple of chances they got their reward when a Marty Mc Bride’s cross was driven home from the edge of box by Shaun Mc Ilwaine. Five minutes later Cranford had the lead, a quick throw from Chris Duffy found Kyle Black who lifted the ball over the defender and volleyed home. Cranford continued to press hard and created loads of clear cut chances but the Donegal keeper kept them at bay. They were rewarded in the 75th minute when flying winger Marty McBride scored with the help of a slight deflection. Best for Cranford were Chris Duffy, Kyle Black and Marty Mc Bride. Team effort from Donegal Town.Watson Hire Division OneKeadue Rovers 3 Gweedore United 2Keadue Rovers claimed a vital victory to move themselves away from the relegation zone in Division One. It was the visitors who went ahead on three minutes, Ciaran McFadden striking superbly to the top corner. By the fifteenth minute Gweedore were in control when Ciaran McFadden scored a lovely solo goal taking the ball from the left, beating a few defenders and slotting to the net. On nineteen minutes Keadue were back in it when Corey Gallagher punished a defensive mix-up and squeezed the ball over the line. Following a good spell from the home side David McCarron was brought down by the keeper but the resultant penalty was struck against the bar. While Keadue continued to press for the remainder of the half Gweedore were keeping them at bay and the keeper wasn’t tested. Into the second half and Keadue started well. Gweedore had a good period of possession around the hour mark and were dangerous at some set pieces. On sixty eight minutes Mark Boyle had a fine effort saved by the Gweedore keeper. On seventy minutes Keadue equalised when, following a clearance by the Gweedore defence, Keadue’s Paul Ferry hit a good effort from the edge of the box which took a slight deflection on its way to the net. At that stage it looked like a draw would be the likely outcome but following a ball out of the home defence Corey Gallagher took the ball round the last defender and keeper and slotted home for the winner. Gweedore pressed hard for an equaliser but couldn’t breach the home defence. Overall a good victory for Keadue for whom Corey Gallagher, Ryan Rodgers and Mark Sweeney played well and for Gweedore United Ciaran Gillespie, Niall Friel and Frank McGee were impressive. Referee: Paddy DuffyEany Celtic 1 Bonagee United 2Liam Mc Monagle got Bonagee off to the perfect start when he latched o to a loose ball in the Eany penalty box following a corner kick in the 5th minute. Eany took a while to settle into the game and had several chances to equalise but found the visitors keeper in good form. The first half ended 0-1. The home side started the second half where they left off in the first and their efforts when rewarded when Barry Rose was upended in the box. Rose put Eany level from the penalty spot. The game went end to end for the rest of the second half and the visitors scored their second goal in the 75th minute with a counterattack following an Eany breakaway. Martin Hunter found space to have a shot from outside the box and put Bonagee ahead. Eany worked hard for the equaliser their performance deserved but time ran out.CT Ball Division Two Deele Harps 1 Ballybofey United 3Deele played host to Ballybofey in what turned out to be a very open game. As early as the 2nd minute Gavin Gallagher dragged a shot wide from 20 yards. In the 15th minute the home side again went close when Conor Catterson headed straight at the keeper. That miss proved costly as two minutes later Andy Duncan fired Ballybofey ahead after his initial shot was saved. Ballybofey were on top at this stage and forced a succession of corners and were turning the screw. The away side increased their lead in the 32nd minute when a flick on by David White found Darragh Redmond and the striker beat two defenders before his deflected shot looped over Christy Roulstone in the Deele goal. From the restart a fine passing move involving Seamie and Gavin Gallagher found Conor Catterson and big man finished to the top corner from 20 yards. The second half was very stop start, with a flurry of injuries forcing both sides into changes, but Ballybofey never give Deele a route back into the game. Just before the hour mark the visitors increased their lead with a rare goal from P.H. Bonner as he headed home a corner unchallenged. The game petered out in the end on a frustrating day for Deele. John Gregg and David White were very impressive for Ballybofey. Referee: Patrick MartinLetterbarrow Celtic 3 Dunlewy Celtic 2Letterbarrow got off to a great start with James Mc Groary putting them a goal up after five minutes. The home side continued to dominate play until Dunlewy scored a header from a free kick, Lorcan Gallagher got the decisive touch. Letterbarrow’s response was brave and they were rewarded when John Roper scored a simple goal after a great free kick from Steven Graham. Soon after John Roper shocked everyone when he lobbed the keeper with a cheeky but clever shot from 25 yards. The second half was less entertaining. Dunlewy scored their second with a Ciaran Mc Geady shot making the last 20 minutes very nerve wrecking for the home side. Great home win for Letterbarrow with Enda Kenny, James Mc Groary, Steven Graham, John Roper and Cathal Louther best for the home side. Whitestrand United 6 Glenree United 1On a cold and foggy afternoon Whitestrand United played Glenree United at Whitestrand Park. Whitestrand United have been a good run of form recently and were looking to continue this in what looked a difficult match against Glenree United. Both teams battled for the upper hand in the early minutes of the match. Michael Sweeney went down in the box and the referee blew for a penalty. Up stepped Eddie Blake who calmly slotted the ball past the keeper. Whitestrand kept up the pressure and Eddie Blake almost doubled his personal tally when he hit his shot narrowly wide from Michael Sweeny’s cross. Michael Sweeney broke through on two occasions and had good efforts on goal. Glenree went up the pitch and equalised when a defensive mix-up led to Damien Nelis scoring the equaliser. Shortly after this the ball fell to Calvin McGowan who hit an excellent strike into the top corner. It was an excellent strike and a good response to Glenree’s equaliser. A good corner led to the third goal when Sean Gallagher headed into the top corner. A hectic ten minutes before half time saw Calvin help himself to his second goal.Glenree were shell-shocked after the 10-minute blitz before half time and this showed in the second half when the tempo of the game dropped. The game had slowed down dramatically. Good play on the right hand side between Paul Lynch and Eddie Blake led to Blake crossing the ball and substitute James Gallagher helped himself to a goal. The final goal of a dominant display by Whitestrand came from Paul Lynch when the ball came to him in the box and he had all the time in the world to find the bottom corner. Best for the Strand were Calvin McGowan and Eamon Martin. Referee: Victor RaineyOscar Traynor TrophySligo / Leitrim League 1 Donegal Junior League 0The Donegal Junior League team who were defeated by Sligo / Leitrim in the Oscar Traynor Trophy on Sunday at Ray Mc Sharry Park. Pic.: Gary Foy, League PROThe Donegal Junior League’s Oscar Traynor ambitions came to a halt in Ray Mc Sharry Park, Sligo on Sunday afternoon. The Yeats County town is still cheerfully decorated in the red and white colours of Sligo Rovers after their recent FAI Cup victory. Those colours assumed a dual purpose on Sunday evening as the Sligo / Leitrim League, who play in similar attire, progressed to the next round of this season’s competition at the expense of their north-west rivals.Sligo / Leitrim started brightly as Donegal took time to find their rhythm. After only two minutes Mark Mc Conigley had to be alert when a fiercely struck corner kick fizzed across his six yard line. But the custodian, who would go on to produce countless fine saves, dealt well with the threat and fisted the ball confidently away to safety,On five minutes Ryan Carlin won a free kick for Donegal wide on the right. Team captain Michael Doherty floated the ball across the area. Ryan Shields rose well at the back post but Martin Ward in the home net managed to get a touch to divert the ball away from the Kilmacrennan man’s head. Mc Conigley again thwarted the hosts when he got down well to save a Keith Nibbs shot from the edge of the box. Sligo / Leitrim looked dangerous going forward but they failed to find the final ball and most of their attacks broke down outside the Donegal penalty area. For their part Donegal were playing well. Ryan Carlin and Oisin Mc Menamin looked to have the wherewithal to unlock the home rearguard. Mc Menamin made Ward earn his corn when he fired a thunderous shot toward the Sligo / Leitrim net but the home keeper proved well up to the task.With thirty eight minutes gone Donegal forced two corners in quick succession. Kevin Mc Brearty delivered the first which Ward fisted away for another a on the opposite side. Ryan Mc Fadden took the second corner and played it short to Michael Doherty. The team captain tried his luck from outside the box but his left footed effort went over the bar. As half time loomed Donegal were giving as good as they were getting. Carlin and Mc Menamin were both dangerous going forward. Kevin Mc Brearty, deployed on the left side of midfield, offered cover for left-back Brian Coll who had been so exposed in the match against Inishowen. The pair were very effective and allowed no Sligo / Leitrim advancement along their flank. Mc Conigley in goals and Ryan Mc Fadden as well as the central defensive pair of Shields and Mc Gee also showed well throughout the opening period.Sligo /Leitrim came out for the second half with all guns blazing. This seemed to unsettle the Donegal side. Three times within the opening five minutes Mc Conigley had to produce top drawer saves to keep his side in the game. The pressure final told in the thirteenth minute when Sligo / Leitrim centre half Damien Shannon pounced on a loose ball in the Donegal box and he drove the ball to the net with venom.Then came the match’s finest moment. Sligo / Leitrim playmaker, Christopher Kelly, swung a free kick into the Donegal box from wide on the left wing. Centre forward Gareth Reilly rose highest and with the deftest of flicks seemed to have doubled the home side’s advantage. Unbelievable Mc Conigley, who was moving in the opposite direction, stuck out his left leg to stop the ball at the expense of only a corner. No-one could believe he had prevented the goal at absolute point blank range.The remainder of the game saw little between the sides. Sligo / Leitrim continued to create the better chances. This was a direct result of their better pass completion rate. Donegal had plenty of possession but all too often their manoeuvres faltered before they could present and real danger to the hosts. Mark Griffin replaced Kevin Mc Brearty and Dylan Ramsey came on for Ryan Carlin but the Cappry pair couldn’t impose themselves enough to have any bearing on the outcome. It finished at one nil to Sligo / Leitrim and Donegal will now have to start thinking about how they will approach next year’s competition as they again will attempt to progress from the Group stages on this prestigious competition.Sligo / Leitrim: Martin Ward, Neill Mc Kenna, Aaron Murran, Gary Rooney, Damien Shannon, Colm Jinks, Liam Mc Tiernan, Ross Mc Loughlin, Gareth Reilly, Christopher Kelly, Kith Nibbs.

Glencar took the lead early in the game when Paddy Rafferty found the net in the 10th minute. Glencar’s lead was short lived as Fintown’s Daragh Gallagher got the equaliser in the 20th minute. Mick Martin put Glencar back into the lead when he had a pop at goal and caught the Fintown keeper on the hop on thirty minutes. Brian Delaney got the equaliser just before the half time whistle.With the sides level it was all to play for in the second half. Fintown took the lead for the first time when Ciaran Thompson scored on the 75th minute. Glencar worked hard to level but to no avail. Fintown took the valuable points after a good hard fought game. Solid team performances from both sides. Referee : Brian O KaneGlencar Inn Saturday Division TwoStrand Rovers 2 Keadue Rovers Reserves 3This local derby lived up to all the expeditions between Strand Rovers and Keadue Rovers. The game started very lively with Strand having the bulk of the possession and being rewarded with a goal which Brendan Glackin took well. Unfortunately the game was held up for a while as an injury to Laurence Mc Daid, Strand Rovers No. 2, required an ambulance to take him to hospital. When the game re-started Strand carried on from where they finished. It was 1-0 at the break. The second half started with both teams playing some good football. Things got a bit heated for a period and resulted in 3 players being sent off. Keadue seemed to play better with the nine men and were rewarded with an equaliser from Conor Greene. During another period of good play from both sides Strand regained the lead with a goal from Thomas Brennan. Keadue then sprung into life and two goals, one from Conor Greene and one from Corey Gallagher resulted in a 3-2 win for the visitors to Maghery. Strand will once again feel hard done by as they didn’t deserve to be beat. Best for Keadue was Corey Gallagher with Brendan Brennan and Stephen Glackin best for StrandGweedore United Reserves 2 Cranford United Reserves 1This game played in Gweedore on a cold wet day saw the home side take all three points. . United got off to the best possible start when they were awarded a penalty as Eoin De Barra was pulled down in the Cranford box. Stephen O’ Donnell stepped up and took the penalty which was excellently saved by Oisin Blaney in the Cranford nets. Both sides played good football and there were chances at both ends. The home side broke the deadlock in the 18th minute when a well struck free kick from Martin Doohan went in at the near post. Lee Carr and Paddy Shields had two good chances to equalise however both efforts were wide of the target. In the 35th minute the home side made it 2-0 when a good shot from Martin Doohan was parried by Blaney in the Cranford nets and Stephen O’ Donnell ran in to score from close range. In the second half the good football continued from both sides with Cranford going in search of their first goal. The visitors got their reward in the 50th minute when James Lee Mc Bride scored past Whoriskey from long range. The score remained 2-1 until the end. Conor Shields, Ben Mc Bride and Naoise Cullen played well for Cranford and it was a good team performance from United with Sean Gallagher, Hugh Mc Fadden, and Martin Doohan excelling on the day. Referee: Paul Doherty.Curragh Athletic Reserves 1 Tullyvinney Rovers 4Curragh started this game very brightly with a Gary Heaney strike just going wide. Against the run of play Tullyvinney scored on the 45th minute from a Daniel Mc Nulty header…Curragh pressed and pressed but the Tullyvinney defenders stood strong..The visitors doubled their lead, again through Mc Nulty strike. In the 82nd minute Adam Gardiner raced clear and lifted the ball over the Curragh keeper o make it three. Curragh then scored the goal of the game, a wonder strike from 45 yards out from Mickey o’ Brien. Tullyvinney scored their 4th in the 90th minute from Daithi Gardiner.

Leading Darwinist Advocates Breeding Humans with Chimps

first_imgNew Attempts to Interbreed Humans and Chimps to Prove Evolutionby Jerry Bergman, PhDA new movement headed by Professor David Barash to prove evolution by breeding humans with our claimed closest relative, the chimpanzee has gained credence. A core teaching of Neo-Darwinism is that humans are simply another animal produced by evolution. Researchers have produced many hybrids, even between two animals once classified as different species. Some of the thousands of examples include tigons (the offspring of a male tiger bred with a female lion), ligers (the offspring of a male lion bred with a female tiger), jagulep (a jaguar bred with a leopard), and a leopon (a leopard bred with a lion). As far as known, all of the big cats can successfully interbreed.Professor Barash concluded from this observation that it is “by no means impossible or even unlikely that a hybrid or a chimera combining a human being and a chimpanzee could be produced in a laboratory. After all, human and chimp (or bonobo) share, by most estimates, roughly 99 percent of their nuclear DNA.”[1] He added that the gene-editing tool known as CRISPR, an acronym for the Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeat system, is regularly used to deliberately modify the genome of many life-forms. This tool provides scientists with the ability of adding and deleting targeted genes from a genome.Consequently, Barash added, “it is not unreasonable to foresee the possibility—eventually, perhaps, the likelihood—of producing ‘humanzees’ or ‘chimp-humans.’ Such an individual would … be neither human nor chimp: rather, something in between.”[2]  Some evolutionists believe after humans and chimps separated from our common ancestor and became separate species we were still able to interbreed.[3] Consequently, since we used to interbreed, to do so today would not be unexpected.Barash’s GoalBarash believes that breeding chimps and humans “would be a terrific idea” for many reasons including to quell what he calls the most harmful “theologically-driven myth of all times: that human beings are discontinuous from the rest of the natural world, … specially created and endowed with souls, whereas ‘they’—all other creatures—were not.” Producing ‘chimp-humans” hybrids would be, Barash argues, the ultimate proof of evolution. Interbreeding humans and chimps would also “drive a stake into the heart of that destructive disinformation campaign of discontinuity, of human hegemony over all other living things.”1 It would also demolish the view that, as Genesis teaches, humans are to have dominion over the animals:And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.[4]The chimp-human goal is important to Darwinists because it “is almost impossible to imagine how the most die-hard advocate of humans having a discontinuously unique biological status could continue to maintain this position if confronted with a real, functioning, human-chimp combination.”1 Barash concluded, that “faced with individuals who are clearly intermediate between human and ape, it will become painfully obvious that a rigid distinction between the two is no longer tenable.”1 Human evolution from some ape would finally be proven beyond question.Critique of Barash’s GeneticsA major mistake Barash makes is his erroneous claim that “human and chimp (or bonobo) share, by most estimates, roughly 99 percent of their nuclear DNA.” Even a 12-year-old study that sampled protein coding genes found “humans and chimpanzees differ by at least 6% (1,418 of 22,000 genes), which stands in stark contrast to the oft-cited 1.5% difference between orthologous nucleotide sequences.”[5] As more comparisons were completed using more complete genomes, the similarity was reduced. The latest research found it is closer to 86 to 89%.[6] Given a 14% difference of 3 billion base pairs, that would yield a whopping 42 million base-pair difference.Professor Barash advocates this approach because he assumes its success will encourage humans to treat animals better because the great divide now existing between humans and all lower forms of life will be reduced. In fact, it will likely have the opposite effect. If humans are just another animal, a different kind of primate, it will likely influence humans to de-humanize other humans. After all, humans are just animals as are also the apes. This is exactly how Nazi Germany justified mistreating certain people, including Slavs, Jews, and Roma, that led to the Holocaust.[7]David P. Barash is not a fringe scientist, but a leading researcher and science popularizer. As a Professor of Psychology emeritus at the University of Washington, he has written, edited or co-authored 40 books, and over 230 scholarly articles, mostly on Darwin and Darwinism. He is also a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.The Ivanov study is told in more detail in ch. 14 of this book by Dr. BergmanEfforts to Breed Humans and Chimps in the PastNor is this the first time human-ape breeding experiments have been attempted.[8] The first scientific attempt was in the mid-1920s at a laboratory, then part of French Guinea in Africa. The work was done by a leading Soviet Scientist, Professor Ilya Ivanovich Ivanov, and his son. Ivanov was a world famous breeder of hybrids specializing in the field of artificial insemination and the interspecific hybridization of animals. His successes were sensational, especially among horse breeders from many parts of the world. He had wanted to try “the  ultimate test of Darwinian evolution” [interbreeding humans with chimps, i.e., humanzees] … since 1910, and he finally (after consulting with Hermann Muller, the Soviet-loving Drosophila scientist) screwed up the courage to request a research grant in the early 1920s.”[9]The “top Bolsheviks saw something promising in Ivanov’s idea: a chance to insult religion, the Soviet Unions avowed enemy… in our struggle for the liberation of the working people from the power of the Church.”[10] Only a few months after the Scopes trial the Soviet government gave Ivanov 10,000 dollars, 130,000 in today’s dollars, to prove his ape-human theory.[11]Ivanov attempted at least three times, without success, to inseminate female chimpanzees with human sperm. He also attempted a set of experiments involving ape sperm and humans, but was unsuccessful for several reasons.[12]  Ivanov used Negro women because they were in his day believed to be biologically closer to apes, thus, he reasoned, the experiment would more likely be successful.[13] His belief was based on the writings of Darwin and others.Darwin’s Race TeachingsDarwin expected that, at some future point, “not very distant … the civilized races of man will almost certainly exterminate and replace throughout the world the savage races,” thus making the gap between humans and apes even greater than it currently is now.[14] The eminent evolutionist Professor Carl Vogt, “distinguished, as did most biologists in the second half of the nineteenth century, between crosses of ‘allied’ races [such as negroes and apes] and ‘distant’ ones, such as white humans and apes.”[15] These scientists believed hybridization of the lowest human type and the highest ape type would vindicate Darwin and serve as powerful evidence of evolution.[16]Both the scriptures and Christian history condemn this attempt. The Bible is very clear: “All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.”[17]  A real concern is that these experiments, although they will likely fail, will further erode human value and encourage inhuman experiments. Kean concluded that “almost all respectable scientists today would lay money on human-chimp fertilization being impossible.”[18] There are many reasons for these conclusions. For example, they include to activate the system to form a zygote and beginning cell division is species specific. Assuming that a zygote can form, human and chimp regulations of DNA are very different. Although in the case of different chromosomal numbers, a female horse with 64 chromosomes and male donkey with 62 can produce a mule with 63 chromosomes, which is usually sterile, but humans are not donkeys, and the same process may not work for humans. The 15 percent difference in genes (close to 400,000) will also cause enormous problems.This study recalls the now-shameful 1932 U. S. Government Public Health Service study of the natural history of syphilis among poor Blacks compared to Whites to justify certain treatment programs. The “Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male” initially involved 600 black men – 399 with syphilis, and 201 disease-free. Rather than treat the disease with the medicine available after the study began, the physicians allowed it to progress to determine if the progression in Black men was the same as it was in White men.[19] The study continued for 40 years, and by then most of the infected subjects had died, many of horrible and painful deaths. As expected, the researchers concluded no difference existed in untreated syphilis between Blacks and Whites. The breeding study between apes and humans, regardless how it turns out, will no doubt likewise be an embarrassment if not an unethical fiasco.[1] David Barash. 2018. “It’s Time to Make Human-Chimp Hybrids.” Nautilus, March 8.
