Tomorrow’s game: In a week which sees things just as tight at the bottom as they are at the top, the focus today will be on the UWI FC-Waterhouse clash at the UWI Bowl.In this encounter the promoted UWI FC, who are sitting in sixth position on 30 points, host former champions Waterhouse, who are sitting in 12th position in the 12-team league on 21 points. While the table may show that UWI FC should be the more fancied of the two, recent events may cause some amount of worry for the University boys, while Waterhouse could be convinced that they have a good chance of taking all three points.Prior to Monday night, UWI FC were looking quite stable with goalkeeper Amal Knight putting in commanding performances, their defenders kept it tight, while Girvon Brown and company kept the goals coming as they recorded two wins and two draws in their previous four matches. Against Harbour View on Monday, though, they looked very porous in the back, Knight looked unsure of himself, while their forwards were unable to breach the ‘Stars of the East’ who spanked them 5-0.Waterhouse, despite sitting at the foot of the table, are looking up positively with coach Paul Young being convinced that things are coming together and that they are primed for a lift. In their last four games, they have had three draws and one win – away over fourth-placed Humble Lion. Two of their three draws in that time were against current third-placed team Montego Bay United.”I am very much optimistic about our chances from here. Today, one of our central players, Dale Reid, was out because of asthma attack yesterday, so we had to make an adjustment in the defence line. In the midfield, we had Dominic James out and there are some other key players out who we are trying to get back healthy just to get the system going but it is a work in progress and we are going; to be fine,” Young said last week at the end of their second 0-0 draw with Montego Bay United.Young also said that while his team did not play, their best football that day, they showed great character to stand up to the opponents who ended the game with a one-man advantage following the expulsion of Theo Brown. The team, he said, had a good balance with the experienced Hughan Gray, the returning Weston Forrest, Kevin Lamey and Devon Hodges providing leadership for the youngsters such as Reid, goalkeeper Akeem Chambers and Nicholas Nelson among others.”We were brought back down to earth as we were having a good run for the previous six games … but it is better now than later,” Marcel Gayle, UWI FC’s coach about their big loss to Harbour View.He added: “Consistency is not the order of this league. All teams have had their ups and downs and it was our time to have a down. The good thing, though, is that we will be at home and we are looking to make amends.”Today’s games:3 p.m: Reno vs Rivoli United – Frome Complex3 p.m: Montego Bay United vs Humble Lion – Wespow Park3 p.m: Portmore United vs Boys’ Town – Juici Park, Clarendon3 p.m: Tivoli Gardens vs Harbour View – Edward Seaga Sports Complex3 p.m: UWI FC vs Waterhouse – UWI Bowl, Mona 8:40 p.m: Cavalier vs Arnett Gardens – Stadium East Points standingTeam P W D L GF GA GD PtsArnett 23 13 4 6 35 20 15 43Portmore 23 13 4 6 28 20 8 43MoBay United 23 11 9 3 34 13 21 42Humble Lion FC 23 9 8 6 21 18 3 35H View 23 8 9 6 28 22 6 33UWI FC 23 8 6 9 24 34 -10 30Cavalier SC 23 7 6 10 18 23 -5 27Boys’ Town 23 7 6 10 25 33 -8 27Reno 23 6 9 8 22 30 -8 27Tivoli 23 6 5 12 26 32 -8 22Rivoli 23 5 7 11 24 32 -8 22Waterhouse 23 4 9 10 20 28 -8 21

One of Donegal’s rural roads has been identified on a list of Ireland’s worst accident blackspots.A new analysis of the most treacherous road segments in Ireland has shown that the N56 in Gaoth Dobhair, where the road meets the junction of the R258 and crosses the Clady Bridge, is one of the 20 most dangerous areas.The research carried out by Gamma Location Intelligence found that the Donegal segment had a collision rate of 125, based on the number of road accidents per 100 million vehicle kilometres. The most dangerous stretch of road was found to be in Galway, located just east of Kylemore Lough, from Cliften to near Leenaune along the N59. This road had a collision rate of 1131.Richard Garry, Director of Location Intelligence for Gamma said: “Overall, according to the data provided by Transport Infrastructure Ireland, collision rates are decreasing across the country.“However, there are specific stretches of roads where the frequency of collisions is still high.“Not only does this analysis show drivers where they need to take extra care; it is also useful for insurance companies as it identifies the areas which are worst for road accidents and enables them to better assess risk.” West Donegal road named as one of Ireland’s most dangerous areas was last modified: September 26th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Reid Abbott, Field Agronomy Manager for AgroLiquidIn my house, two words — “assembly required” — have come close to ruining more Christmas mornings than the Grinch himself. For many growers it seems the words “fertility program” can cause as much anxiety as staring down a Barbie Dreamhouse box under the tree. One savior that occasionally graces us with its presence both on Christmas morning and in the field however, is a good set of instructions. The right manual can ease the assembly process and increase the likelihood of a job well-done. When determining a fertility program, a soil sample report is that instruction manual and can very well keep you from running to the bowl of egg nog.Upon first glance, a complete soil sample report can look like something a nuclear engineer carries in his briefcase. However, when each component is broken down, a picture of the soil conditions and needs start to come together. Organic matter percentage, cation exchange capacity, pH and base saturation percentages should be included on any standard soil test and are key to understanding the physical and chemical characteristics of a soil.Organic matter percentage gives a grower an idea of the overall health of his soil as well as a rough estimate of certain naturally occurring nutrient releases (such as nitrogen) throughout the growing season. Cation exchange capacity (CEC) indicates the nutrient holding capacity of a soil and to an extent the soil’s texture.As many are aware, the pH measures the hydrogen ion concentration (or acidity) of a soil. This value can give a grower insight in to how available (or unavailable) essential plant nutrients are in the soil. Finally, the base saturation percentages quantify the relationship between calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), potassium (K), hydrogen (H) and sodium (Na) in the soil. Depending on how these nutrients align with each other can widely affect the soil’s physical and chemical properties, nutrient interactions and a crop’s success. Agronomists use these values plus the soil’s CEC and pH when recommending soil amendments to determine the type of product (lime, gypsum, etc) and amount to be used to correct an imbalance in the soil.After determining the opportunities and limitations due to the soil’s properties as discussed previously, a grower can accurately predict a yield goal and look to the individual nutrient levels to further develop a fertility program. On a soil sample report, individual nutrients are generally reported in parts per million (ppm).Multiplying the values by a factor of two gives a unit of pounds per acre (lbs/A) which more easily correlates with application recommendations. In the case of nitrogen (N), a recommendation simply comes from the crop’s needs (based off yield goal) minus the N present in the soil (according to the soil test). Loss factors based on application options and climate must also be calculated when recommending N, but by-in-large, it is a fairly straightforward nutrient to recommend based off a soil test.In contrast, however, due to the unique nature of phosphorus (P) and its habit of tying up in the soil, different tests and considerations must be taken into account. Bray1 and Bray2 P tests indicate readily available and slowly available P, respectively, in neutral and acidic soils. If the soil has a high pH, a bicarbonate test is performed to more accurately demonstrate available P levels. Also, phosphorus (P) can be affected by other nutrients such as zinc (Zn). For instance, high and low Zn levels each offer their own challenges for phosphorus efficiency in the soil and the plant. It is somewhat of a case of science meets gut-feeling when it comes to recommending phosphorus. Likewise, K is challenging because many variables have to be taken into account. For example, high Mg and Na saturations can negatively impact K efficiency and with low CECs, a soil’s ability to hold on to applied K is diminished. Secondary and micronutrients are just as critical as the three macronutrients but are used by plants in much lower quantities. Regardless, they still require their own balance to function properly and for a crop to succeed. Paying careful attention to soil test levels, crop needs, nutrient interactions, and application options of secondary and micronutrients can produce big rewards at harvest.When it comes to a proper fertility program, there will always be some “assembly required.” However, just as you would gather tools and instructions to put together a new Barbie Dreamhouse, obtaining a complete soil analysis and some trusted advice will ease the pain and set your farm on track for a successful year.

sarah perez Some LinkedIn users will have noticed a change to the navigation and user interface of the LinkedIn.com website, announces a company blog post. The business-focused social network is in the process of rolling out an updated design that aims to improve and simplify site navigation while also offering a cleaner, less-cluttered look. Does the fresh coat of paint hit the mark? What’s New: Navigation Improvements, Lots of WhitespaceOne of the main new features of the revamped LinkedIn is the global navigation bar at the top of the page which links to all the site’s features including profile, contacts, groups, jobs, your inbox, and more. Click on any of these items and a drop-down menu will appear providing you with further options. This gives the most important navigational aspect to the site a more modern look than it had before when each section was displayed in clickable tabs of different shades of blue. LinkedIn says the updated design was based on years of data from usability research but what you’re seeing now isn’t necessarily the final product. They’re still iterating and, based on user feedback about the new look, they may make some additional changes in this and other areas. Still Needs Improvement: the LinkedIn InboxOne thing that still hasn’t improved, sadly, is the LinkedIn inbox. Although the homepage view of the inbox provides a handy “take action” button which lets you quickly accept, reject, or archive requests, the full inbox view still forces you to click each message to accept or reject requests – there are no bulk actions you can take from the inbox screen besides archiving or marking messages as read or unread. Even worse, after accepting or rejecting a request, the message remains in your inbox until you manually archive it, necessitating quite a bit of additional work if you’ve let those invites pile up. What Do You Think?Are you impressed with the new look for LinkedIn? Or did you prefer the old tabbed interface better? LinkedIn obviously hopes that by simplifying the navigation and site elements which help to better engage users that they will spend more time exploring and interacting with the various site elements. Do you think that will be the case? Or do the underlying features of LinkedIn need improvement as well? The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Related Posts A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Tags:#Product Reviews#social networks#web The company also touts how the new look and feel also makes room for more page content with less scrolling needed in order to see everything on the page. This is also true to some extent. However, on your homepage where network updates and group updates are featured, the amount of scrolling depends on the size of your network and how active the network members are. For example, under the “group updates” section, updates for the past seven days were posted followed by a section that included updates from the prior week. That actually led to quite a bit of scrolling to see them all. It’s not necessarily a bad feature, though. After all, LinkedIn isn’t the sort of site we’re logging into on a daily basis so it’s nice to be able to catch up when we’re there… even if that means the homepage screen extends downward forever.Also new on the homepage are moveable, collapsible sidebar modules which can display things like who’s been viewing your profile, events, job listings, applications you’ve added, and more. Cleaner Look Highlights AdsOne downside of the site’s “cleaner” look is how much more noticeable the ads are now. Of course, to LinkedIn this may be an upside. Although the ad placements are no different than before, the new look makes them really stand out. Since everything is now black or blue text on a white background, the full-colored ad at the top of the screen is the first thing to draw your eye upon login. There’s also a text link ad directly below the global navigation that demands your attention. It’s in the exact place where a company message would normally appear and the font used is a darker, bolder blue than anything else on the site. Both of these elements are somewhat distracting, but we suppose there’s nothing that you can really do about ads. Still, we wish that the network had taken a page from Facebook’s book when it came to ad placement – when you log into Facebook, the first thing you notice is the content and the updates, not the ads.

The autopsy of a 22-year-old man, who was allegedly killed in the police firing during violence in the Walled City on Friday night, was conducted at the mortuary of Sawai Man Singh Government Hospital in Jaipur on Monday. The curfew clamped in four police station areas in the city continued for the third consecutive day.The body of Mohammed Rais alias Adil was handed over to his family members after the post-mortem, which was carried out under the watch of a Sub-Divisional Magistrate. Police said a limited number of persons would be allowed to attend his burial at the Ghat Gate graveyard here.Following the talks between Rais’ family members and police and administrative officers, the State Government has agreed for allotment of a dairy booth and payment of compensation to the family as well as a special probe into the firing incident as part of investigation into the cases registered in connection with the violence.Earlier, there there was a deadlock over post-mortem of the youth’s body, as the next of his kin had refused to accept his body while demanding suspension of the staff of Ramganj police station, compensation and a government job for a family member.An altercation between a police constable and a couple during a routine vehicle check in the Ramganj area on Friday evening snowballed into a major law and order situation, as hundreds of people gathered outside the police station and pelted stones. About 12 persons, including some policemen, were injured and several vehicles were torched in the violence.
