Vipers continue off-season spending, sign Allan Kayiwa


first_imgKayiwa (Left) scored 10 goals in the UPL last season.KITENDE – Vipers SC are understood to have completed a deal to sign Tooro United forward Allan Kayiwa.According to reports by Swift Sports, Kayiwa has signed a three year deal at the Kitende based side.Kayiwa had a magnificent 2018/19 season at Tooro, scoring 10 goals whilst assisting 6. His numbers propelled the Uganda Cranes technical team to summon him for the 2019 COSAFA Cup in South Africa.He has been on the redder of several top flight clubs including KCCA FC and URA, but it is now believed that he is a Venom. Kayiwa joined Tooro United in 2015 from the club’s youth team and has since then been a mainstay in the side that finished 4th last season.He is the second signing for Vipers this off season, joining Paul Willa and Rashid Toha.Signing Kayiwa is a major step in the right direction as Vipers bid to resurrect from a below-par season, last.The Venoms who came into last season as the defending league champions and finalist in the Uganda Cup, could not replicate such form.Representing Uganda in the CAF Champions league, the Venoms were eliminated at the second round of qualification and hence dropped to the Confederation Cup. While there, they also failed to make it to the Group stages as they fell immediately.In the League, they came second to KCCA FC while a humiliating exit to then-Big League side, Proline FC, ended their Uganda Cup campaign at the quarter-final stage.After such a disappointing season, the Kitende based side was expected to strengthen their playing staff and have not disappointed so far.Comments Tags: Allan KayiwaKCCA FCPaul WillaRashid TohaTooro unitedtopURA FCvipers sclast_img read more


Geology: Another Catastrophic Rethink


first_imgAmphitheater-shaped canyons are common throughout the West – and even on Mars.  Geologists had them pretty well figured out.  Water seeps out the bottom of a wall, weakening the face of a cliff.  Gradually, material collapses and leaves a large alcove that continues to recede headward.  That idea is now questioned by a new theory that says catastrophic flooding produces these canyons suddenly.    Space.com has a summary of a paper published in Science this week that re-evaluated a classic case, Box Canyon in Idaho.  The new theory is that sudden flooding, perhaps from melting ice sheets to the north, released a torrent of water that cut the canyon at one time.  The article estimated the complete canyon, cut into solid basalt, was eroded in 35 to 160 days at most.  The flood theory explains unusual features, like scour marks on the walls and large boulders sitting out in the middle of nowhere, that were difficult to explain with the old theory.    An idea of the size of this “megaflood” was given in the article.  Michael Lamb, geomorphologist at UC Berkeley, said, “Imagine forcing a quarter of the flow in the Mississippi through a chute 32 times as narrow and 1,000 times as steep as the Mississippi River channel.”  800 to 2,800 metric tons of water could have blasted through the channel at 22 miles per hour.    Space.com reported this article because of its implications for Mars research.  If megafloods also formed the amphitheater-shaped canyons on the red planet, perhaps calm water did not exist for long periods – a blow for those hoping life would have time to exist.Another old-age paradigm has had to shift under new investigation.  These kinds of canyons are very common in the arid southwest, like in the Grand Canyon.  Where did the water come from in the desert?  In the aftermath of a worldwide flood, such phenomena would be expected, but not in a place where geologists feel huge seas of Sahara-like sand ruled for millions of years.    Access Research Network also reported on this paradigm-shifting theory.(Visited 26 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
