On Christmas day alone 14 drivers were arrested by Gardaí on suspicion of intoxicated driving. It is disappointing following the many appeals and media focus in this area, that so many divers continue to take such a risk. We again appeal to drivers to be responsible and to never, ever drink and drive. We appeal to passengers to never take a lift from someone who has been drinking, and also to pedestrians – please enjoy the New Year celebrations and be safe! Plan your journey home in advance. Let’s make this New Year a safe one for all.”Moyagh Murdock, CEO, Road Safety Authority said: “Any amount of alcohol impairs your driving, this is not an opinion, it’s a scientific fact. So if you are socialising to ring in the new year remove temptation altogether and leave the car and keys at home and plan how you are going to get home. Be aware too that you may not be safe to drive the morning after a night out, as you may still have alcohol in your system. Our appeal is to passengers too, don’t take a lift from anyone who has been drinking and don’t put your life in their hands.” Previous articleSix year prison sentence for robbing taxi driver at knifepointNext articleLimerick Fringe will launch with 30-something acts Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie

Brisbane median house price hits record Auction clearance rate news We didn’t think there would be many people turning up,” Mrs Doherty said afterwards.“It’s such an uncertain market. Even driving in there was a lot of talk saying please stay at home but clearly there are people out there who are able to buy.” The house’s owners stood on the back patio for the auction, a decent distance from the auction attendeesAward-winning auctioneer Justin Nickerson and Belle Property Samford lead agent Georgie Haug ran messages between the parties throughout the auction.“We’re looking for a development on this land so we can do two houses,” Ms Yasaei said while the agents discussed price with Mrs Doherty and her sister who was on the phone.“It’s very hard to find empty land in Grange, mostly they are character homes.” MORE REAL ESTATE STORIES Mrs Doherty revealed the reserve of $950,000 and the bidders conversed in their native Iranian before replying with an offer of $850,000.“Okay, they’re not going to sell it for $850,000,” Mr Nickerson said.“I’ll give you time to have a chat about it.”Moments later, the couple came into the lounge room with an offer of $901,000, to which MrsDoherty replied with $920,000.“We’re pretty close,” Mr Nickerson said. Hand sanitisers were on hand at the auction“They want to sell it today and they want to sell it to you. You’re the only people here.”Further negotiations brought the price to an agreed $912,000.“Now this is going to sound really funny but we do actually have to knock it down to you so have you still got your (bidding) number somewhere?”The couple flashed the number two and Mr Nickerson turned on his award-winning auctioneer’s voice.“So welcome to our large crowd, we appreciate every single one of you joining us, welcome to today’s auction, we have got an increased offer to $912,000. Georgie our instructions are?”“We’re selling,” Ms Haug replied.

A new NFL collective bargaining agreement could be on the horizon.According to ESPN, which cited sources close to the negotiations, discussions between the league and NFL Players Association are “set to intensify” this month in an effort to secure a new deal before the start of the upcoming regular season, the league’s 100th year. ProFootballTalk, citing a source with knowledge of the ongoing negotiations between both sides, reported Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has taken a more involved role that puts him right in the middle of the discussions. Related News Jones has been known to ruffle a few feathers among both players and fellow owners, and he hasn’t had the best relationship with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Nonetheless, Jones appears intent on getting a new deal done.The current CBA is set to expire after the 2020 season. While there’s no guarantee an agreement will be reached in the coming months, both sides are optimistic that they can find some middle ground without a work stoppage. Ezekiel Elliott apologizes after meeting with Roger Goodell: ‘I made a poor decision’ The report noted the two sides have scheduled negotiating sessions for July 17-19, marking the first time they will engage in talks for three straight days, and added that “the biggest and potentially most contentious issues are expected to be addressed” as well.
– husband, son remain in stable conditionOne day after being brutally stabbed by a family friend following a birthday celebration at Byderabo, Region Seven (Cuyuni Mazaruni), the 56-year-old woman succumbed to her injuries while receiving medical attention at the Georgetown Public Hospital.The woman’s husband and her 15-year-old son were also attacked and injured by the suspect, who subsequently committed suicide. In addition, the now dead woman’s 14-year-old daughter was allegedly molested by the now dead man.It was reported that on Tuesday night, the now dead woman’s husband hosted his birthday celebration, and the suspect, 23-year-old Raphael Charles, along with others, was consuming alcohol.At about 02:30h on Wednesday, the woman and her husband, along with their daughter, retired to their bed, leaving their 15-year-old son and the suspect watching television.Shortly after, Charles allegedly armed himself with a knife and slashed the teen to his neck, before going to the bedroom which the boy’s parents and younger sister were occupying.Charles marched into the bedroom and dealt several stabs to the now dead woman and her husband. They, however, managed to escape, and ran out of the house, leaving their teenage daughter on the bed.According to the Police, the suspect allegedly sexually molested the girl, after which she managed to run out of the home. Soon after, the man was seen using a rope to hang himself from a beam inside the house.The injured persons were taken to the Bartica District Hospital, where they were admitted and then referred to the Georgetown Public Hospital for further medical attention.The suspect’s lifeless body was cut down; he is said to have been a mute.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The experts weren’t expecting the USDA to raise yield estimates. Many don’t believe the numbers, but everyone is now trading off of these new projections. Farmers probably won’t be selling at these prices. In the past when farmers waited futures eventually creep back up to $4 corn and $10 soybeans. We’ll see if that strategy works again.Some are saying this will be the highest yield posted by the USDA for the year for corn and soybeans. It has been noted that the USDA has trouble estimating crop yield in wet years. Once harvest starts in 45 days there will be a better understanding of yield potential.The Ohio’s Country Journal did a crop tour last week in Ohio and believe the yield on corn could be 166 to 175 while the USDA pegged it at 168. Some experts were thinking Ohio was closer to 150. Read more here http://ocj.com/2015/08/2015-1-75i-71-ohio-crop-tour-summary/.Farmers in the east have a mix of good and bad corn fields. In the west farmers say fields are better than expected after such a wet spring, while northern farmers are expecting record crop yields.This week Pro-Farmer starts their crop tour. If their estimates are drastically different from the USDA, there could be an upswing in prices. However, it should be noted that crop tours can miss yields by wide margins. It’s hard to estimate what kernel weights will be as late season moisture can have big effects yet on the final yield.Grain marketing recap for the 2014 corn cropWith new crop corn being harvested in the South, the 2014/15 marketing year is essentially over. I continue to tell farmers that looking at cash prices isn’t enough. Savvy farmers examine every aspect of the marketing process to optimize their grain marketing strategy.Futures have the biggest movement potential for farmers. In the last two years corn has had a $2 per bushel range ($3.25-$5.25). My farm average was $4.78, which puts me in the top 25% of the market move. Hindsight tells me I should be happy with this. This price was established using a combination of futures, options and spreads, all of which helped reduce my risk and give me a good price.Basis (the CBOT price minus the local price available) has been running independent of the CBOT values this year. The range for basis was nearly 40 cents from top to bottom (-.50 to -.10) for the season. I set the basis for my farm in mid-January at nearly 20 cents above the local market for summer delivery. I just missed the top by 5 cents. I was nearly in the top 10% of the basis market this year.This is the first year in the last seven that I didn’t hit the very top of the basis market. While I’m mildly disappointed, taking a 20 cent premium early in the year while reducing risk is something I would do again.Carry — many farmers over-look or may not understand the potential in market carry. Carry represents how farmers get paid to store grain until early summer guaranteed. This year the high was hit in mid-Oct, paying farmers 32 cents to hold their grain until the following summer. (Usually it hits the top of the market before Dec 1.) I set my carry price at 29 cents (or 3 cents off the top). That’s another top 10% finish.Evaluating PerformanceI can only truly evaluate the performance of my marketing plan after I’ve broken down each component individually. When farmers tell me their cash sales, it usually isn’t the whole story. Maybe they picked their futures price well, but missed substantial opportunity in the carry market and who knows where the basis was when they made their trade.How to make an additional 10% on your grainIf a farmer works basis and carry into their marketing strategy they can increase their profits by 10% or more. It doesn’t matter if the market is at $3 or $8. Savvy farmers are learning how this kind of marketing is beneficial to their bottom line. This is not a reinvention of the wheel, but merely adopting a plan that already exists and is used by all the major grain companies.My Current Positions in Corn POSITION – CORN201420152016Corn Sold100%100%28%CBOT Price$4.78$4.71$4.50 estMarket Carry$0.28$.30 est$.30 estBasis on Farm($0.15)($.20) est($.20) estOptions & spread profits$0.08––Cash Price$4.99$4.81 est$4.60 est Jon grew up raising corn and soybeans on a farm near Beatrice, NE.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Sidedressing manure opens up new windows of application time for commercial manure application while also providing valuable nutrients to growing crops when they can be immediately used.“That is a down time for commercial applicators. They currently do not have that window available to apply manure from May 1 to early July,” said Glen Arnold, Ohio State Extension manure specialist. “We all know we are going to spend $100 or $125 per acre on sidedressing corn. We are learning that we could go out there with 6,000 gallons of swine manure and accomplish the same thing.”Arnold has now conducted several years of studies of manure application.“We started with dairy and swine manure on small plots and swine manure on wheat. We were very pleased with how that worked,” Arnold said. “Then we tried sidedressing corn because it uses much more nitrogen. You have to haul that manure at some point. Every gallon we can put on a growing crop in the early spring and summer is one that we don’t have to put on in the fall. If we get it on the growing crop we have a better chance of catching the nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus and other nutrients that are there. We are also working to convert to drag hose technology for application.”In response to the success demonstrated in the research, several farmers in Ohio have started sidedressing corn with livestock manure using a manure tanker and incorporation toolbar. Manure tankers can be adapted for corn rows by using narrow wheels and wheel spacers.Here is a summary from Arnold. The 28% UAN nitrogen rates and manure nitrogen rates were 200 units of nitrogen per acre. The swine manure application rate was 5,200 gallons per acre to get 200 units of nitrogen. The dairy manure application rate 13,577 gallons per acre to get 130 units of nitrogen per acre. The dairy reps received additional nitrogen as incorporated 28% UAN just prior to the manure being applied to reach the 200-unit goal. Manure was applied using a manure tanker and Dietrich injection units with covering wheels attached.Pre-emergent manure applications were made within five days of the corn being planted. Post-emergent manure applications were made at the V3 stage of corn growth.The 2011, 2012 and 2014 growing seasons experienced periods of drought. The 2013 growing season was very good, with adequate moisture through July. The 2015 growing season was very wet.Stand populations were approximately 31,000 plants per acre across all treatments. The manure did not appear to reduce the plot stands in any year. All manure was applied with manure tanker and Dietrich tool bar.Grain samples were analyzed each year for vomitoxin. There were no differences between the treatments. The manure treatment grain samples did run about 0.5% higher in moisture at harvest time.The incorporated manure applications were approximately 20 bushels per acre higher than the 28% UAN treatments over the five-year study. Moisture from the manure was beneficial to the crop in the dry years. The surface applied manure treatments were similar in yield to the incorporated 28% UAN treatments. Drag hose plot resultsThe 2015 growing season was the second year for a corn post-emergent drag hose study. The purpose of this plot is to determine how far along in development the corn crop can be before the damage from a drag hose would rule out sidedressing with livestock manure. A 15-foot long drag hose filled with water was used for this study.The six-inch diameter drag hose was pulled across each plot twice (going in opposite directions) at corn growth stages one through five (stage five was not completed in 2015 due to excessive rainfall). The tractor speed was approximately 4 miles per hour. The plot was replicated four times in a randomized block design. The 2014 plot experienced an unusually dry growing season, especially in the weeks following the drag hose treatments. Total precipitation received by this plot from planting until Oct. 1 was 11.62 inches. The 2015 plot experienced an unusually wet growing season, especially in the weeks during the drag hose treatments. Total precipitation received by this plot from planting until Oct. 1 was 22.12 inches. The results of this two-year research study suggest corn could be sidedressed with liquid livestock manure using a drag hose, up to growth stage three (three leaf collars), without a statistically significant yield loss. This study will be repeated in 2016 to establish a larger data base.Below are links to videos of the swine manure application process to emerged corn in Ohio. Harrod Farms applied almost one million gallons to 160 acres of corn (five fields from five barns) over two days in May 2015. The rate was about 6,200 gallons per acre and this supplies the N, P, & K needed by the 2015 corn crop and the P & K needed for the 2016 soybean crop. The only additional nitrogen for the corn was 10 gallons per acre of 28% UAN as row starter.Manure tanker application to corn: go.osu.edu/mtanker• Harrod Farms 2015: go.osu.edu/mHF15• Harrod Farms 2014 (Field yielded 226 bushels per acre): go.osu.edu/mHF14.
Read Next Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC As for the ugly shot, did Fultz change his mechanics because his shoulder hurt or does his shoulder hurt because he changed his mechanics? Even that isn’t really clear, though the latter seems more likely.“I don’t dismiss that it could have been a possibility,” Brown said.Fultz, though, now has a spot on the Injured 76ers Rookies list that boasts such recent prospects as Nerlens Noel, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. That trio of first-round picks all missed their rookie seasons (Embiid missed his first two) and Fultz for now is only scheduled to miss Wednesday’s game against the Houston Rockets and road games Saturday at Dallas and Monday at Houston.“I think that we all understand there were some things going on,” coach Brett Brown said. “I feel like it’s a time where we can take a deep breath and help move him forward in a cleaner way.”Fultz is shooting 33 percent, 50 percent from the free-throw line and has not attempted a 3-point shot all season, all as a reserve.“I watched hundreds and hundreds of his shots,” Brown said. “I get so excited because you see so clearly why he was the first player chosen. The kid is a baller. He can really play.”ADVERTISEMENT The 76ers traded the No. 3 overall pick and a future first-round pick to the Boston Celtics for the No. 1 pick with the intention of drafting Fultz. Team president Bryan Colangelo said there had been “no medical reason” not to play Fultz this season and the shoulder had no structural damage.“At some point, you’ve got to know your body can no longer go through certain things,” Embiid said.Colangelo and the Sixers were caught on their heels for the second time this season over the severity of their stars’ injuries. The Sixers said in January that Embiid was out with swelling and a bone bruise in his left knee until news broke it was actually a torn meniscus. It’s difficult to imagine the Sixers would have said Fultz was treated with a shot had it not been for the agent’s erroneous statement to ESPN.“I think we are unfairly scrutinized, sometimes,” Brown said. “I understand we have been put in funnysituations.”The Sixers have made a heavy investment the last few years in their medical department, building a new training complex that offers round-the-clock care. The team sent out a press release when it hired itsfirst-ever “Vice President of Athlete Care.”But no amount of sports science has kept Philadelphia’s cornerstones healthy.The fact that Fultz even played has gone against one of the core principles of “The Process,” which is patience. The Sixers did not hesitate to shut down Noel, Embiid and Simmons and never wavered in the decision not to play them, even at times when they were dunking and shooting 3s in warmups.Brown was stymied at times in a pregame scrum that featured nearly three dozen members of the media andfelt more like a “60 Minutes” interrogation than a loose Q&A.How could you tell the injury affected Fultz?“I don’t want to comment on that.” Fultz has made the wrong kind of headlines in his brief tenure for shooting mechanics that resemble something akin to a toddler learning to shoot a basketball. Take a quick scan of YouTube videos, and highlights of the 6-foot-4 guard out of Washington can be found under the titles “Markelle Fultz Gruesome Free Throws ,” ”This Is Why Markelle Fultz’s Free Throws Look Like Trash” and “Are the 76ers Cursed?”Cursed?

Fultz’s agent caused a brief panic this week when he said Fultz had fluid drained from his shoulder. The truth was, Fultz simply had a cortisone injection this month to treat the shoulder — a procedure the Sixers curiously did not reveal until the facts became confounding.

Man Utd academy chief Butt reveals loan plans for youngstersby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United academy chief Nicky Butt has revealed plans to release several of their youth teamers for loan next month.Butt, expects some members of his Under-19 squad to depart on loan during the January transfer window, despite the promise of playing knockout games in the UEFA Youth League in March. He said of the forthcoming loan market, “It will affect the Under-19s [as a team]. But if you ask any Manchester United fan or Ed [Woodward] or the owners or the manager, they want players in the first team. That’s my job. That’s the job of the Academy coaches – to get players in the first team. If you can win competitions as well, that’s the best thing you can do.”Is it good to have some players just waiting for an Under-19s game to come along? No. So we are looking to get players out on loan to develop them so they come back better players and better people for our club, with a real chance on playing on the biggest stage in the world.”Butt continued: “We see January as a changeover of the guard if you like. “A lot more players will be pushing up to the Reserves and the youth team will be made up more regularly of first-year scholars.“They will be starting more regularly in the youth team and players will be going out on loan. But, yeah, we plan – we don’t just pick it out of the air.””“We make plans for a year, 18 months or two years for players and we believe it’s the right way to do things.” TagsTransfersLoan MarketAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
Clemson Football Coach Dabo Swinney Also Believes Notre Dame Should Be In A Conference To Be Playoff Eligible
Dabo Swinney WhipAs we make it through college football media days and the various ESPN “car washes” that follow, Notre Dame’s independent status has become a hot topic of conversation once again. Last week, Missouri’s Gary Pinkel argued that the Fighting Irish should be forced into joining a league within a year. Clemson’s Dabo Swinney agrees: either Notre Dame should join a league with a conference championship, or adopt a 13 game schedule.Dabo Swinney agrees w/Gary Pinkel: “Absolutely Notre Dame needs to be in conference or play 13 games to be in @CFBPlayoff“— Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyESPN) July 27, 2015Swinney’s not the only high-profile ACC coach to think this.Paul Johnson: “Notre Dame should be in the ACC. It’s another brand program to strengthen the conference.”— Joe Schad (@schadjoe) July 27, 2015The ACC obviously has a lot to gain from Notre Dame, if it ever committed fully to joining a conference. With the current scheduling arrangement between the Fighting Irish and the league, the ACC is currently the most logical landing spot for Notre Dame football. Adding Notre Dame would be a big boost to the ACC football brand, which lags behind the other power conferences when it comes to perceived strength.
