This scientist is based on the theory of biocentrismIt is quite similar to the theory of parallel universes From childhood we have the knowledge that life has different well-marked stages that range from the birth of a living being to its death. All these stages are within the so-called cycle of life and are known throughout the world. However, there is one that not all society perceives in the same way. There are people who see the last stage of life differently and have their own theories of what death entails. Image: iStock An example of this is Robert Lanza, an American scientist who has published in his own blog a theory that confirms that life does not end after death, since it “does not exist.” To reach this conclusion, this scientist relied on the theory of biocentrism within quantum physics.Something similar to the theory of parallel universes This theory speaks of the fact that death is a concept associated with the death of a person’s body but that it is not real. The theory of biocentrism is quite similar to the theory of parallel universes and according to this scientist life is like “a perennial flower that blooms again in the multiverse”.To justify this theory, Robert Lanza also said that when we die we do not do it according to a random matrix but as an inescapable matrix and that death does not exist without space or time. This does not mean that there is perpetual immortality, but that it is out of time.
Holmwood Technical High, the Inter-secondary Schools Sports Association rural senior champions, will be seeking their eighth all-island title today when the 2015 season comes to an end today with the national finals at Clarendon Park in May Pen. Action starts at 1 p.m. with the junior final between Denbigh and Gaynstead. The senior final will follow between Holmwood and Camperdown, the urban champions. It should be an epic encounter between seven-time Holmwood and Camperdown. Holmwood will start favourites after they scored a one-sided win over Titchfield High in the rural finals. Camperdown, on the other hand, were pushed to extra-time by St Hugh’s. Both coaches are upbeat going into today’s encounter. “We do not expect anything less than a victory,” Holmwood’s coach, Carlene Graham-Powell, said. She added: “Our girls play hard every time they take the court, and I expect another good game from them, and I have no doubt that they will be victorious today.” Goal shooter Tracyann Francis of Holmwood was outstanding in the rural senior final and will be a key player for Holmwood today. A majority of the Camperdown players have been playing together for the past five years and four have represented the country at the junior level. Coach Wayne Stewart thinks this is a plus for his team. “We did not see Holmwood on Tuesday … but our girls are ready for the occasion. They have played together for a number of years and have gelled well, and we are confident that Camperdown will win their first all-island title,” Stewart said. Goal shooter Idara McCarthy and goal attack Ramona Lawrence will be key players for Camperdown. Denbigh will be appearing in the junior final for a third straight final, and after losing back to back to Queen’s, they will be hoping to win against first-time finalists Gaynstead. “Our team is a very young one … but I expect them to win and make up for their disappointment in the past two years where they lost to Queen’s,” said Janice Walker, coach of Denbigh. Sports coordinator Derrick Brown of Gaynstead is also looking forward to a victory for his girls. “The girls are very confident and I have no doubt in my mind that they will win. As long as they stay focused and follow instructions, they should go all the way,” said Brown.
With just one point from its first two group matches, Argentina is in trouble.

Croatia won 3-0. (AP Photo/Petr David Josek)NIZHNY NOVGOROD, Russia — It looked like a defeated army surrendering to the enemy, humiliated. Grim faces avoiding eye contact, parading behind their leader to an uncertain fate.Argentina’s national team, led by captain Lionel Messi, behaved just like that after a chastening 3-0 defeat to Croatia in the World Cup on Thursday.ADVERTISEMENT But the team has been acting like elimination is a foregone conclusion.Coach Jorge Sampaoli spoke as if an era had ended. He made it clear that his blueprint “didn’t succeed.” He tried different tactics and tweaked formations, but nothing worked. The loss to Croatia came after a 1-1 draw with Iceland, a nation of 350,000 people that is playing in its first World Cup.“There’s nothing to say. The result speaks for itself,” defensive midfielder Javier Mascherano said. “We can only swallow the poison and see what happens” in the other group matches.The criticism back home has been ruthless. The main targets are Sampaoli and goalkeeper Wilfred Caballero, whose error led to Croatia’s first goal.And there are others who are pointing the finger at Messi, accusing him of lacking leadership.ADVERTISEMENT View comments Landmark win as Djokovic reaches Queen’s semis Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Bicol riders extend help to Taal evacuees Cloudy skies over Luzon due to amihan Jury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Harvey Weinstein rape trial Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Sampaoli is the third coach since the 2014 World Cup, which Argentina finished as runner-up.Those who think the team has a shot at winning the 2018 edition is taking into account Argentina’s history, not its present-day situation. And they have been relying on Messi to see them through.But so far Messi has had nobody to support him, since Argentina’s midfield is its weakest link and has been generating little creativity. The team lacks identity and doesn’t scare opponents.There also appears to be discord in the dressing room, especially toward the coach. Forward Sergio Aguero responded in a defiant tone that Sampaoli “can say what he wants,” when journalists told him about the coach’s post-match remarks.The booing of Sampaoli and Caballero by Argentina fans after the first goal only has helped to exacerbate the crisis.“The feeling is of extreme pain to not have been at the level that the Argentine people wanted,” Sampaoli said. “I want to apologize to everyone that came to see us. I feel responsible for this. I had belief just like them and today I’m very hurt. I have tried to do my best until now and I haven’t found the way to give them what they want.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next LATEST STORIES

President David GrangerThere has been a surge in criminal acts and activities in recent days and Head of State David Granger has sounded the alarm that this is in fact a part of a coordinated effort to embarrass the Government and Guyana Police Force (GPF).Granger made this pronouncement on Thursday, when he met with members of the local media corps for his ‘Public Interest’ television programme and said “I am suggesting that the pattern of crimes that we have seen is part of a campaign.”The President conceded that there has been a decline in the rate within which ranks of the GPF not only respond to reports of criminal activities but also in their apprehension and prosecution of suspects.The President told media operatives, “I am very suspicious about the fact that the Police are reacting very slowly.”He used the opportunity to draw reference to two robberies committed on Wednesday last, one at the home of former Home Affairs Minister Clement Rohee and another at the home of the son of prominent Chartered Accountant Christopher Ram.The President was adamant that these crimes “cannot go unnoticed.”According to the Head of State, “I get the impression that these crimes, they are crimes, they are almost to embarrass the Police Force, to embarrass the Government.”He suggested that the perpetrators of the attack against the former Home Affairs Minister could not seriously be expecting to walk away with any large haul of loot, “but it certainly made the headline news.”The President was adamant that “we have to be very careful that people are committing crimes because of some ulterior motives… Maybe it is to show that the Police Force is weak or the Government is weak “Granger told media operatives “we don’t know for sure what is taking place but many of these crimes have their origins in the weakening of the Police Force.”This weakening of the Police Force, according to Granger, obtained during the period he recently described as the troubled period in Guyana, adding that there are some persons who seem hell bent on repeating or continuing the lawlessness that prevailed during that period.“We have a very serious problem on our hands,” according to Granger, as he pointed to Government’s resort to resuscitating the Security Sector Reform Project with the assistance and funding of the British Government.“Some of the actions taking place,” according to Granger, convinced him that the Police Force has to be reformed.Expanding on his revelations, the President reminded that Government inherited the Guyana Police Force in its current state, namely a state of affairs where there was an erosion of its capacity and capability.During that ‘troubled’ period, according to Granger, the Police Force was weakened, coupled with the fact that more Police were murdered during that period than in any other period in Guyana’s history.“We had rampant criminality, the murder rate was much higher, executions were much higher… drug lords were driving about.”According to the President, the Police Force was present during that troubling period and this is compounded by the fact that many of the ranks that were witnesses to and a party to activities of that period are still in the Force.“We have not purged the Police Force so there are still some elements in the force and in society who were involved in those problems.… certain high profile crimes we are noticing now seem to be hold overs from that period and I am very suspicious about the fact that the Police are reacting very slowly.”Police Commissioner Seelall PersaudAssistant Police Commissioner David RamnarineStorm in a teacupMeanwhile, the President also used the occasion to weigh in on the current public bickering between Police Commission Seelall Persaud and his deputy Assistant Police Commissioner, David Ramnarine.Persaud, who recently returned from leave has attempted to rescind decisions taken by Ramnarine who had acted in his stead, namely with regard the promotion of several Police ranks.The Top Cop has claimed that his temporary replacement was not authorised to make any such promotions, while Ramnarine differed with him.The matter has since spilled into the public domain and according to President Granger, it was earlier this week addressed at the level of the National Security Committee.Granger told media operatives that the Public Security Minister has since been tasked with investigation the matter.Lamenting the fact that the matter has in fact been playing out in the public domain, Granger called the state of affairs unseemly and of concern since it could in fact not only have a negative impact on the morale of the ranks of the force but could also embolden criminal elements looking to do mischief.He suggested too that such high-level quarrelling in the hierarchy of the Police Force can also undermine the public trust in the institution.Weighing in on the spat between the two Top Cops, the President pointed to the fact that the Force operates with a hierarchical structure with the Commissioner at the helm.He noted however that when the Assistant Commissioner is acting in that capacity, it is expected that this be done in an affirmative and not passive manner.“Although there is a structure, there is also a convention that persons who are acting have to do their work in an affirmative manner and not in a passive manner,” according to President Granger.He nonetheless opined that the matter is not insurmountable and while it is cause for concern, it is in fact nothing more than a “storm in a teacup”, adding “I don’t believe the problems are unsolvable.”
Sixteen-year-old Brian Charles Yearwood of Lot 69 Grove Public Road, EBD was fatally stabbed in the region of his chest, allegedly by a 17-year-old resident of Kaneville, EBD at some time around 20:00h on Saturday.The incident occurred in the compound of the Covent Garden Nursery School on the East Bank of Demerara (EBD), where the late Covent Garden SecondaryDead: Brian YearwoodSchool student had gone to attend a concert held by his school.According to police reports, a policeman who had attended the concert with a relative responded immediately, and with the assistance of other persons, rushed Yearwood to the Diamond Diagnostic Centre, where he was pronounced dead on arrival (DoA).Guyana Times visited Yearwood’s home, and his grieving mother, Beverley, related that she had dropped her son off at the school at sometime around 17:00h on Saturday, and then at around midnight was informed by one of his friends about his tragic death.“The lil boy (Brian’s friend) just run in the house and throw heself on the chair and just start crying. Then he say, ‘Aunty, they kill Brian’. I didn’t believe him, so I pick he up and bring he outside, and we sit down and he tell me again, ‘Aunty, they kill Brian, he done dead’,” the woman related.“So I ask him, ‘Where is Brian right now?’ and he said, ‘The police got him at the hospital, and he dead’. Is like then it sink in, and I just start screaming…I scream for (the tenants) upstairs, and continue screaming all the time,” the distraught woman recounted.She said family members immediately went to the hospital, where she saw her son’s motionless body lying on a stretcher.This distraught mother explained that, up to Saturday evening, family members were not sure what had transpired at the school to cause her son’s death; but on Sunday morning, a few of Brian’s friends came over and related to her what had happened.The woman said she was told that her son was sitting on a bench with a few other boys and another group of boys sitting opposite was teasing them. She said the boys sitting on the bench with Brian subsequently got up and moved away, but Brian remained there sitting. Seeing Brian alone, the other group of boys went over to his bench and began teasing him.The woman noted that she was not told exactly what happened after that – whether or not her son had retaliated and angered the group — but they began pelting him with bottles, and so he escaped.“He got away from them and ran up to the guard hut. There were some teachers standing there, so he ran and he stopped in front of the teachers. Maybe he was thinking that he was safe; but, in the presence of the teachers, those boys just run up, and one of them stabbed him. He plunged the knife into my son’s heart and pulled it out. Brian then run from there and he fall down at the fence,” the grieving mother related to this newspaper.The 17-year-old suspect, a dropout student of the same school, has since been arrested. According to the mother, she was made to understand that Brian and the suspects had been friends, but she is not sure what would have led to Saturday’s tragedy.Brian had been a former student of Central High School, and had only transferred to the Covent Garden Secondary School in September last year. The 16-year-old was described by his family as an easy-going and jovial individual. He leaves to mourn his parents and five siblings, along with other relatives and friends.His body is at the mortuary awaiting a post mortem examination. Police investigators have since started collecting statements from persons who attended the concert and would have witnessed the fatal stabbing.Nevertheless, the suspect remains in custody also assisting with investigations.
WASHINGTON – The political brinkmanship over Iraq war spending intensified Tuesday, as President George W. Bush said congressional Democrats had “undercut the troops” by passing legislation that ties continued war financing to mandated timelines for the withdrawal of American combat units. Bush used a morning news briefing to renew his promise to veto emergency war spending bills with the withdrawal provisions that have passed in the House and the Senate. He blamed Democrats for a growing impasse, saying they had been irresponsible in pushing bills they knew he would not sign. “Instead of passing clean bills that fund our troops on the front lines,” he said, “the House and Senate have spent this time debating bills that undercut the troops.” By speaking Tuesday from the Rose Garden, Bush was seeking to seize the stage in an increasingly heated standoff over war financing that carries political risks for both sides. Democrats immediately struck back, blaming the president for forcing a deadlock that has delayed the release of money for operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. In his appearance on Tuesday, Bush alternately exhibited playfulness and annoyance, but issued a similarly pointed call for cooperation. “If Democrat leaders in the Congress are bent on making a political statement, then they need to send me this unacceptable bill as quickly as possible when they come back,” he said. “I’ll veto it, and then Congress can get down to the business of funding our troops without strings and without delay.” Bush said during the news briefing that the wrangling over the language of the war financing bills threatened to have a serious effect on the troops themselves. He said that if he did not receive a bill he could sign by mid-April – and he has said he can only sign a bill “with no strings attached” – then the Army would be forced to consider curtailing equipment purchases and repairs and delay the training of National Guard and Reserve units. If the standoff goes into mid-May, he said, the Army would have to delay the training of active-duty units, which would affect tour schedules by prolonging the stays of personnel already in Iraq and Afghanistan. Democrats have argued that Bush made no such complaint last year when Congress, then held by Republicans, did not approve an emergency war spending measure until late spring. And the bill in the House, they said, would mandate that the president follow Pentagon policy limiting deployments and requiring a set period of rest between deployments – one year for the Army; 210 days for the Marines – or obtain waivers to ignore them. Each side is betting that it is correctly gauging the public mood. “We represent the American people’s views on this failed war,” Sen. Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader, said in his home state, Nevada, where he toured a National Guard complex. Reid released a statement that said: “The president’s policies have failed and his escalation endangers our troops and hurts our national security. Neither our troops nor the American people can afford this strategy any longer.” The remarks from each side were among the most heated in the confrontation so far. They were made while Congress was in recess for the Easter holiday, but with Democrats unwilling to give Bush an open shot while they were away. Bush warned that a failure by Congress to approve the $100 billion he had requested for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan would prolong some tours in Iraq and shorten time at home between tours for others. “That is unacceptable to me,” he said. “And I believe it is unacceptable to the American people. “It’s one thing to object to the policy, but it’s another thing when you have troops in harm’s way not to give them the funds they need,” he said. Among the signs of Democrats fighting back are an online petition begun by the presidential campaign of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, expressing opposition to the veto that Bush has threatened for the bills that would attach timelines for withdrawal to the release of the war financing. “Mr. President, please work with us,” Clinton said in a statement on Tuesday. “Don’t veto the will of the American people.”
