Plant sale

first_imgBy Stephanie SchupskaUniversity of GeorgiaHands flew through the dirt as Amy Conway and Katie Sandlin poked holes in the soil. Faith Conway handed them plugs, and they popped the tiny plants in the holes and patted them in place.And then they were done, one more tray of six-pack flats ready for the upcoming plant sale on March 31-April 2 and April 7-9.Every year, the University of Georgia’s Horticulture Club holds a plant sale as its main fundraising event at its greenhouse complex on Riverbend Road in Athens. This year, according to Amy Conway, the club’s vice president and no relation to club president Faith Conway, they’ll be selling annuals and perennials.The sale will also include vegetable plants like tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers and a few herbs such as basil, oregano and dill. Customers can also pick up trees and shrubs.“We provide a wide selection of unique plants,” Amy Conway said. “They’re not just your standard basics.” This year’s variations include tiny edible strawberries and tropical plants.“This is the first year we’ve had tropical plants,” Faith Conway said. “We divided tropical plants for Dr. [Paul] Thomas. We left him with two of everything, and we took the rest for the sale. It was literally like a jungle when we got in his greenhouse.” Thomas is a horticulture professor with the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. The UGA Horticulture Club usually attracts students majoring in horticulture, landscape ground management and landscape architecture, although students in any discipline may join. Students learn how to grow plants from seeds and plugs as well as how to take cuttings and propagate plants. They also grow annuals for the club’s two yearly plant sales.“This has been the most energetic horticulture club the department has had,” said Thomas, a UGA Cooperative Extension horticulturist. “They’re doing a very good thing.”For the sale, the club gets many of its plants from wholesale nurseries. “By providing a good, quality plant, we’re helping the community,” Faith Conway said.The community doesn’t just gain knowledge and exposure to new plant varieties through the students. They also help them by asking interesting – and sometimes challenging – questions about the plants.“Most people walk in and say to the students, ‘well, I have this spot and it gets shade,’” Amy Conway said. “And we try really hard to fit a plant to their spot.”The horticulture club’s plant sale will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, March 31 and April 1 and from 1-5 p.m. Sunday, April 2. It will be held again from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, April 7-8 and from 1-5 p.m. Sunday, April 9.(Stephanie Schupska is a news editor with the University ofGeorgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.)last_img read more

Football News World Cup winner Mesut Ozil announces retirement citing ‘racism’

first_imgNew Delhi: 2014 FIFA World Cup winner for Germany, Mesut Ozil on Sunday announced his retirement from international football following a media outrage and much criticism for having his photograph taken with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan.Ozil took to Twitter and released an official statement defending his stance over the photograph of him with Turkish President.”My job is a football player and not a politician, and our meeting was not an endorsement of any policies,” Ozil said in the official statement.Few hours following his statement over the controversial photograph, Ozil said that the treatment he has received from DFB (German Football Association), media, pundits and others “makes me no longer want to wear the German national team shirt.””I feel unwanted and think what I have achieved since my international debut in 2009 has been forgotten.”People with racially discriminative backgrounds should not be allowed to work in the largest football federation in the world that has players from dual-heritage families. Attitudes like theirs simply do not reflect the players they supposedly represent.”It is with a heavy heart and after much consideration that because of recent events, I will no longer be playing for Germany at international level whilst I have this feeling of racism and disrespect,” the Arsenal midfielder said.”I used to wear the German shirt with such pride and excitement, but now I don’t.””This decision has been extremely difficult to make because I have always given everything for my teammates, the coaching staff and the good people of Germany. But when high-ranking DFB officials treat me as they did, disrespect my Turkish roots and selfishly turn me into political propaganda, then enough is enough.”That is not why I play football, and I will not sit back and do nothing about it. Racism should never, ever be accepted,” Ozil added.The former Real Madrid man was part of the team that crashed out of the FIFA World Cup 2018 in the group stage, marking their worst World Cup performance since 1938.Mesut Ozil was an integral part of the German 2014 World Cup winning squad.

School of Social Work houses new center

first_imgThe School of Social Work announced on Sept. 9 that it will begin housing the National Center for School Crisis and Bereavement.The center works to increase awareness of the role that schools can play in helping students cope during times of crisis, according to the School of Social Work.The NCSCB is known for giving educators, agencies and organizations resources to help with crisis management in vulnerable populations.The organization aims to emphasize the role schools can play when critical situations occur and collaborates with various organizations and agencies to improve upon this goal and to function as a source for information, training resources, consultation and technical support.The center’s relocation to USC will give it access to the School of Social Work’s experience with school-based social work as well as its reputation, research facilities and faculty,“We believe the addition of the National Center for School Crisis and Bereavement will help us make even more important and far-reaching contributions to better prepare schools to provide grieving students the support and care they need,” Marilyn Flynn, dean of the School of Social Work, said in a statement.The National Center for School Crisis and Bereavement was initially founded by David Schonfeld. Schonfeld is a professor of practice at the School of Social Work and is director of the center.“Together, this partnership will allow to us to collectively build on efforts to help schools meet the needs of children and staff at times of crisis and loss,” Schonfeld said in the release.Schonfeld is also active in the American Academy of Pediatrics Disaster Preparedness Advisory Council and the Sandy Hook Advisory Commission and the National Commission on Children and Disasters. He also supervises the Coalition to Support Grieving Students.The center started with funding from the Sept. 11 Children’s Fund and the National Philanthropic Trust. The center currently has support from the New York Life Foundation, which gives the center the ability to provide services to educators in school-based settings.last_img read more

Week 13 DraftKings Picks: Best lineup stacks for NFL DFS tournaments, cash games

first_imgWEEK 13 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | DK GPP | Y! Cash | Y! GPPWeek 13 NFL DFS Picks: Top DraftKings stacks for cash games     QB Nick Foles and WR DJ Chark, Jacksonville Jaguars vs. BuccaneersNick Foles has struggled over the last two weeks since coming back into the lineup following his return from a collarbone injury. However, Foles and the rest of the Jaguars passing offense are in the ideal bounce-back spot in a matchup with the Bucs at home. Foles’ price is especially tasty on DraftKings for cash games at $5,400 – he makes for a better GPP play on FanDuel at his $7,400 price tag. There are two great stacking options for Foles in Chark and Chris Conley. I almost put Conley here for cash games given his high unrealized air yards, but I think there is enough value in other spots that you can afford to spend up for the Jags’ top wideout, Chark, in cash games on both DraftKings and FanDuel. The Bucs’ defense is one of the most extreme passing funnels that we have seen in a few seasons, and we want to attack them whenever possible. Chark has established himself as one of the best wide receivers in the AFC, and his large frame is a mismatch for any of the corners that Tampa is likely to throw at him. The total in this game sits at 48.5, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see the game fly over the total with Jacksonville’s defense struggling since the Jalen Ramsey trade and Tampa leading the league in overs this season with 9. MORE WEEK 13 DFS: Values | Lineup BuilderQB Andy Dalton and WR Tyler Boyd, Cincinnati Bengals vs. JetsTyler Boyd complained about his role in the offense last week and was rewarded with 9 targets, which he parlayed into five catches for 101 yards and a touchdown. This was all with noodle-armed Ryan Finley in at quarterback. The Bengals have seen enough from the rookie and will turn back to Andy Dalton at QB, which should pay off for Boyd and the rest of the offense. There is also a chance that AJ Green returns to the lineup this week. While common sense would suggest that Green’s presence would hurt Boyd’s production, Boyd actually has much better splits with Green in the lineup. The cherry on top is a prime matchup against the Jets, who rank in the bottom-10 in passing defense DVOA this season. As for Dalton, his price point is hard to overlook on DraftKings at only $4,700. It’s going to come down to Lamar Jackson, Nick Foles, and Dalton for me in DK cash this week, and I don’t have any problems going with Dalton at this price if it allows me to spend up at other positions. Prior to being benched, Dalton was perfectly serviceable from a fantasy perspective, averaging 19.02 DK pts per game in Weeks 5-8.  Week 13 is overshadowed by the Thanksgiving slate, but the main slate on DraftKings and FanDuel is one of my favorite slates of the entire season. There are a bunch of viable cheap quarterback options – readers of my articles will know how much I love a cheap quarterback in DFS – and plenty of value at WR and TE that allow you to jam in high-end running backs in good matchups. The most popular game stack spots are likely to be the Bucs-Jags (48.5 total), 49ers-Ravens (47 total), and Giants-Packers (45.5). I left out the highest total on slate – Chiefs-Raiders (51.5) – because of how pricing of the slate could lead to this game being overlooked in tournaments. For more great gambling and NFL, NBA, PGA, and MLB DFS content, follow me on Twitter (@DFSBenj), where I’m always answering daily fantasy questions and providing more DFS analysis. WEEK 13 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerWeek 13 DraftKings Picks: Best stacks for daily fantasy football GPPs/tournamentsQB Kyle Allen, RB Christian McCaffrey, and WR D.J. Moore, Carolina Panthers The Panthers are one of the best teams in the NFL to stack, and we have a nice opportunity to load up on them this week as they face the Redskins at home. What makes the Panthers offense so appealing is that their usage is extremely condensed between Christian McCaffrey, D.J. Moore, and Greg Olsen, with Curtis Samuel occasionally sprinkled in. Think of them as similar to the Buccaneers setup between Winston-Evans-Godwin. Kyle Allen is priced down at $5,500 on DraftKings after coming off of a three-touchdown game on the road against the Saints. He hasn’t really flashed the 25-plus point upside that we are looking for in large field GPPs, but you can still have great success in tournaments if he breaks the 20-point mark. Christian McCaffrey is rightfully priced up at $10,500 on DraftKings and $11,000 on FanDuel. What’s interesting about his price this week is that while it is extremely high, there are plenty of great value wide receivers and a cheap tight end (Jack Doyle) that make his price tag easily affordable. In addition to that, I believe that the price tag will hold McCaffrey’s ownership down well below 20 percent despite a prime matchup at home against a pathetic Redskins team that ranks 28th in defensive DVOA. I like McCaffrey in cash games, but love him as a high leveraged GPP play. You could comfortably end your stack with just Allen and McCaffrey, but in large-field tournaments, I want to go with the triple stack and add Moore. The breakout is in full effect for Moore, who has averaged 7.5 receptions and 110.5 yards over the last four weeks. His price continues to rise around the industry, but given his target share in the offense, he may still be too cheap and makes for a nice high-end play at wide receiver. WEEK 13 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endQB Patrick Mahomes and TE Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs I have a feeling that the Chiefs are going to be severely overlooked on the slate this week, and it would be a big mistake to fade them in tournaments. A lot of the attention at quarterback will likely go toward Lamar Jackson and some of the cheaper options. Tyreek Hill is priced up at $8,900 on DraftKings and $8,300 on FanDuel (the most expensive WR on both sites) and is dealing with a hamstring injury. And Travis Kelce is also priced up and is likely to be overlooked with players looking to save salary at the position with Jack Doyle, Greg Olsen, Ryan Griffin, or Dallas Goedert. All of this is to say that you can stack up the Chiefs at extremely low ownership in a prime matchup at home against a Raiders team that just allowed the Jets to put up 34 points. My favorite stacking combination is Mahomes with Travis Kelce. I don’t need to touch too much on Mahomes – he’s good, play him and forget about it – but Kelce is the really intriguing play here. Kelce has been a model of consistency this season and has at least seven receptions with over 60 yards in each of the last three games, with three touchdowns in his last four games. Kelce has also dominated against the Raiders, who rank 24th DvP against opposing tight ends. He has averaged eight receptions and 112.3 yards per game with three total touchdowns in his last three matchups against Oakland.There’s plenty of strategy that goes into putting together a winning DFS lineup, and the best place to start is RotoQL’s DFS tools. RotoQL’s Lineup Optimizer is a massive advantage when you’re building lineups, regardless of contest size or site.last_img read more

Families blame authorities for tardy response

first_imgPirate attack in Suriname…lament lack of information…as search for 16 missing fishermen continuesThe Surinamese Government on Tuesday dispatched a helicopter to continue the search for the 16 fishermen who were thrown overboard during a horrific piracy attack last weekend.One of the four fishing boats sunk by the piratesHowever, relatives of the missing men believe the situation would not be the same had there been a timely response from the Dutch authorities.Five men, armed with guns and cutlasses, attacked four fishing boats and their 20 crew members late Friday evening into Saturday morning near the Wia Wia bank off of the Surinamese shore. Guyana Times understands the majority of the crew members are Guyanese.During the attack, the ruthless sea bandits mercilessly inflicted chop wounds on the crew men and ordered them to jump overboard but not before tying them up with boat anchors, batteries and other heavy items to anchor the men’s bodies underwater.Of the 20 fishermen in Friday’s incident, which has been described as one of the most horrific piracy attacks in recent history, only four were able to make their way to shore.Boat Captain Ramesh Sanicharran, called “Ravo”, one of the survivors, related to reporters what happened to him during the attack.“The looters them come and start to chop we up in the boat and say everybody gonna die. They chop me pon my hand, pon my head and they throw we in the water, everybody… They tie me neck with the anchor and when I reach down to the ground, I lose it and come up back, and for so far only me can meet shore… I don’t know what happen to the rest but I think two of them dead in the boat because they get bad chop,” the boat captain told reporters on Monday.However, reports coming out of the neighbouring country revealed that those two badly injured fishermen, who were spared being thrown overboard, survived and are receiving medical attention.Like most of his fellow colleagues, the Guyanese-born fisherman, originally from Good Hope, East Coast Demerara (ECD), has been living and working in the neighbouring country for a number of years, and according to him, there is little done by the Surinamese authorities to protect seamen.Meanwhile, another Guyanese, Joan Parris, is also in despair as she awaits news about her son, 21-year-old Glenroy Jones, who is missing. She too lamented about the lack of response of the Surinamese authorities in responding to the reports of piracy.“When we heard, we go at the station to report it, you know what they told us, they have to wait till somebody come from out at sea and report the matter, that’s foolish… Is another fishing boat had to load up their own fuel and go out there with 12 men to look to see if they find anybody… Even if them boys survived (the attack), I don’t think they would be alive up to now,” the woman noted.Parris went on to accuse the Surinamese Police of not being fully proactive in their response, since the victims are mostly Guyanese. “This Government isn’t doing anything cause is Guyanese people but is Guyanese people building their fishing industry, their shrimp industry and their prawns industry… No Dutch man ain’t going on that water top, is share Guyanese and they need to protect Guyanese,” she asserted.Also grieving is Tarmatie Ibrahim, who is pleading with the authorities to do all they can to get her husband, Danish Persad, back home with her and their two young sons.According to the woman, she last spoke with her husband, a boat Captain, on Friday evening sometime just before midnight and he told her he was returning home in a few days but instead she received the news of the attack. The couple has been living in Suriname for the past six years.Meanwhile, 50-year-old Ramnarin Singh, called “Harry”, originally for Better Hope, East Coast Demerara, is also missing and his relatives in Guyana are also looking for answers from the Surinamese authorities.The man’s niece, Nikieta, told Guyana Times on Tuesday that Singh and his wife have been living in Suriname for about 15 years and only two weeks ago he visited Guyana. The man’s worried niece said the family contacted the boat owner, but the woman did not give them any information.She noted that Singh’s brother has since travelled to Suriname to get some information about the incident.Meanwhile, the Surinamese Government in a statement on Tuesday afternoon said a helicopter has been dispatched to continue the three-day search with the hope of rescuing more of the missing fishermen or at least retrieve their bodies.“There are immediate searches, we are still working… I read that the actions have stopped, nothing is less true,” Suriname’s Minister of Justice and Police, Stuart Getrouw, said.The Dutch Coast Guard, military and Police Force are continuing the search with support from French Guiana. Nevertheless, the Justice and Police Minister assured that the necessary steps have been taken to ensure the safety of the fishermen in the future. This, he noted, includes, among other things, the installation of a GPS system and the creation of special organisations.Meanwhile, efforts to contact Guyana’s security officials on whether they are getting involved or have been contacted by their Surinamese counterparts have been futile. However, Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge did confirm he is not aware of any contact made with his office by Suriname about this issue.According to reports from the neighbouring country, the sea bandits stole the fishermen’s catch, fuel, the boat engines as well as fish glue. They also hijacked one of the four boats and sank another one, while the two others were retrieved and taken back to shore.Local media in Suriname has since reported that one of the survivors has identified four of the five attackers to be Guyanese. He identified them by their ‘sea names’ as “Dick”, “Bolo”, “Crackhead” and “Sanbad”. The fifth perpetrator was a “dark-coloured” male unknown to the fishermen.Meanwhile, some fisherfolk on the Corentyne in Berbice, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne) believe last weekend’s attack was a vendetta. Several persons operating out of the Number 66 Fishermen Coop told this publication on Tuesday that the Guyanese fishermen operating in Suriname have a rift amount themselves. This is as a result of the availability and accessibility of licences to operate in the waters of the Dutch nation. (Vahnu Manikchand)last_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — April 9, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest 180409_RyanMartinPrecipitation broke out early this morning and spread east over most of the state as a minor wave of low pressure pushed into the eastern corn belt. The actual low looks to track north into the great lakes, but we still will see some light snow hold on over the state through part of the day. Generally speaking, we will see limited precipitation once we get past late morning, but we won’t rule out minor snows right on through this afternoon. Totals will be a coating to an inch at best, with coverage at 60% of the state. We do not see this moisture lingering for long, though. In fact tomorrow and Wednesday both look better with some sunshine working though. However, chilly air will be difficult to get rid of.Action on Thursday looks to be diminished for Ohio. Low pressure tracks north through the great lakes and bringing moisture to WI, MI and Ontario. Some of this will sag south over the northern third of Ohio, but rain totals will be limited to a few hundredths to .25”. This is significantly lower than our concerns last week, and it all has to do with the low tracking farther north. For the most part, action likely will be limited to areas from US 30 northward. Temps will begin to moderate, though, as strong south and west winds come in with this circulation passing to the north.Clouds mix with some sun on Friday, and while we can’t rule out a renegade shower, we do think that most of the region stays dry. Saturday still looks wet, with the potential of .25”- 1” rains over 60% of the state. That coverage is down somewhat from our last look, and it is due to several bigger holes opening up in coverage as the front sweeps through. But, we do see the front slow and moisture flow increase out of the south on Sunday, meaning we can add another .25”- .75” over 80% of the state on Sunday. That brings combined totals for the 2 day period to 1”-2”.Dry Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of next week to finish out the 10 day period with high pressure in over the region. This is a Canadian high, though, so while temps may not be as cold as the start to this week, we do not see a major above normal surge coming. The map above shows total 10 day cumulative precipitation.Good news…our extended window seems to be trying to trend drier. Cooler air holds through the end of next week, but we also do not pick, up significant precipitation. There is a very strong lower pressure complex in the grain plains for the 21st, and it looks like it will spread some .25”-1.25” rains into the eastern corn belt late the 22nd into the 23rd. Models suggest lingering clouds, cool air and sprinkles through the 24th, and then a cooler Canadian high back in for the balance of April. So, while the cool temps do not promote as fast of dry down, we at least see lower threats for new moisture in the extended period.last_img read more
