These requests have been met with a mix of sympathy — we want them too! — and guilt at keeping you waiting. But as of today, there’s excellent news: the first titles from DI Press on audio are here, available on Amazon: Michael Denton’s Evolution: Still a Theory in Crisis, and Tom Bethell’s Darwin’s House of Cards: A Journalist’s Odyssey Through the Darwin Debates. These are both important and enjoyable books. Evolution: Still a Theory in Crisis helped turn Ben Shapiro, one of the smartest commentators out there, to Darwin skepticism. (Listen to Shapiro’s remarks here.) Literary critic A.N. Wilson recognized it in the London Spectator as a “best book” of 2016, calling it a “truly great book” and saying, of the argument Denton makes, that “It is hard to see how anyone…could not be persuaded.”Darwin’s House of Cards won the 2017 “Book of the Year” award in the Origins category from World Magazine, whose editor, Marvin Olasky, praised it as a “gusty and gutsy look at a dogma edging beyond its sell-by date.” Bethell is a wonderful journalist who has seen it all. His book, an eyewitness account, may offer the single most accessible introduction to the Darwin debate.You can get these two books via Audible or on an MP3 CD. Listen to Denton and Bethell on your commute, while you jog, or anywhere you happen to be and want to be stimulated and uplifted. Of course, there are already audio versions available of books by Discovery Institute star authors, including Stephen Meyer, Michael Behe, Douglas Axe, and others. Today’s releases are, though, the first from DI Press itself.This represents a bit of a test. We will measure the demand for DI Press books in audio formats and decide whether to press forward with more titles. Personally, I’m confident that these books will be very popular in their audio versions!Photo credit: Henry Be via Unsplash. TagsA.N.

Unranked Michigan sweeps No. 9 Minnesota

first_imgLucia said many of the Gophers problems would be solved if the usual offensive talent provided the scoring. It was forward Darian Romanko who scored the lone goal Saturday, just his third of the season.Minnesota’s offense is tied for 41st in college hockey. The team has not scored goals to send games into overtime or comeback.“Guys aren’t having the years that they want,” Sheehy said. “It’s a team effort every night, we’ve just got to come together these next 10 games and then [in the] postseason we’ve got to be great.”The team couldn’t find enough offense to come within reach, and by the time four minutes had passed in the first period, Michigan had scored the eventual game-winning goal.The Wolverines offense got scoring from the top-two lines, with a goal each coming from forwards Brendan Warren, Josh Norris and Cooper Marody.The message after Friday’s loss was that players, especially veterans on the team, needed a better start from the first drop of the puck, but the message Saturday was to get the team on the same page for the last 10 games of the season.“What we’re doing right now isn’t working and we know that,” Romanko said. “We’ve got to get everyone on the same page and just buy into the system.” Unranked Michigan sweeps No. 9 MinnesotaThe Gophers found the net once, after an early barrage of goals gave the Wolverines the lead.Max OstensoFreshman forward Brannon McManus celebrates after scoring his goal late in the third period against Michigan on Friday.

The Wolverines padded their lead with another goal 3:06 into the game. Before the Gophers settled in, they found themselves down 2-0.“As the game progressed, sometimes we got in our own way,” head coach Don Lucia said. “The harder you try, the worse it gets. Then you start to become individualistic, and you don’t share the puck and make the right play because you’re trying too hard.”last_img read more
