  • Soybeans Better than Corn Crop South of Indy

    first_img How Indiana Crops are Faring Versus Other States Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Oct 2, 2016 Previous articleSpeak Up Now to Save AtrazineNext articleMorning Outlook Andy Eubank RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Battle Resistance With the Soy Checkoff ‘Take Action’ Program Facebook Twitter SHARE mullen-late-september-crop-checkJohnson County, Indiana corn has some issues going into the harvest season, but the soybean crop is very promising, a scenario common around the state. Just southwest of Franklin late last week some late planted beans weren’t quite ready for harvest, but Bill Mullen, at Seed Consultants said it should be a good yielding crop.“We caught some rains when we really needed it for pod filling time,” he said. “As you can see on this plant here the nodes are close together, and our clusters, 3, 4, 5 and 6 to the node. There’s some of these plants that are holding 4-bean pods, so the likelihood this year is what the stress has hurt for the corn probably hasn’t hurt the beans quite as bad, and I really anticipate our bean yields are going to be as good as last year, and some places a little bit better than that.”Mullen did spot a bean where the pod itself had opened. He said that’s a field that should be targeted for harvest priority.“These beans that really had some issues, lack of moisture for a period of time, the health of the pods started to deteriorate and it started hitting the ground. Go into your fields and look, not so much on the outside, go in the inside of the field a little bit and see if you see any of the beans laying on the ground.”But for corn in that part of Indiana it has been a year with a litany of issues.“Moisture stress, lack of moisture and the high heat after pollination, and we’re seeing dropped ears,” Mullen said. “In many fields we’re seeing European corn borer that went into the stalk and up through the ear shank. There are some places where the ear shank really didn’t develop as good because of the stress.”He said those should also be harvest priority fields since heavy winds can knock the ears to the ground.

NewsBusinessBetting tax rise will cause job lossesBy Alan Jacques – October 16, 2018 1161 Advertisement Email SIXTEEN bookmakers in Limerick are expected to close permanently bringing about 96 job losses because of Government proposals to raise betting tax by 100 per cent.That’s according to the Irish Bookmakers Association (IBA) who say that 335 job will be lost in the South West with 31 bookies closing permanently in Cork, 16 in Limerick, and 9 in Kerry.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “We are shocked that the Government could allow a 100 per cent tax increase on our sector without fully understanding the financial and human cost of this move. It is not just the direct costs involved that are the issue, but also the thousands of families that will be affected by the job losses,” IBA chairperson Sharon Byrne said.“Several hundred people across Ireland are now wondering if their shop will be closed for good on New Year’s Day. I’d love to be able to say they won’t be affected and offer them some comfort but I can’t. This is totally in the hands of the Government”, she added.center_img Ann & Steve Talk Stuff | Episode 29 | Levelling Up RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Exercise With Oxygen Training at Ultimate Health Clinic Previous articleWatch: Samaritans outreach programme gets a boostNext articleTreaty Triumph! book recounting Limerick hurling success unveiled Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie Facebook TAGSbusinessLimerick City and CountyNews Housing 37 Compulsory Purchase Orders issued as council takes action on derelict sites last_img read more

Great news!Now it’s NZ’s turn.www.protect.org.nzA private member’s bill that would have cleared the way for assisted suicide to be legalised across Australia has been defeated.The bill, introduced by Liberal Democratic Party senator David Leyonhjelm, was defeated by 36 to 34 votes after two days of impassioned debate in the Senate.It was knocked down after Liberal senator Anne Ruston and Nationals senator Steve Martin were persuaded to vote against the bill, after initially leaning in favour of it.“I cannot in good conscience offer my support to this bill which will provide the territories the ability to legislate in the area of voluntary euthanasia, certainly without ensuring that appropriate safeguards were in place,” Senator Martin told the Senate on Wednesday.Politicians from both sides of politics rose to share divergent views, with many in support of the bill emphasising the rights of Australians who live in the territories to make their own laws.READ MORE: https://www.smh.com.au/politics/federal/leyonhjelm-s-assisted-suicide-bill-narrowly-defeated-in-senate-20180815-p4zxps.htmllast_img read more

  • Notebook: Oklahoma State-Kansas State

    first_imgWe did a postgame show. We did the 10 Thoughts. We did a recap. We looked at why Ramon Richards was on top of the lockers in underneath Kansas State’s stadium. As a final Saturday wrap, let’s go go the notebook.• Why was Ben Grogan kicking off to start the game? Did Philly pull a hair follicle and have to sit the first quarter?• Kansas State’s first two drives were the most Kansas State drives of all time. There were 17 plays, four passes, 13 points scored and an extra point doinked off the upright. If you Googled “kansas state football” that’s a great summation of what would pop up.• Chris Carson really doesn’t get enough credit for his receiving skills. He’s become a terrific option out of the backfield.• Sugar Loaf Daniels can motor! Holy balls!Watch the big fella give it his all!! #checkenginelight https://t.co/4zpdGRoI5D— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) November 5, 2016• The announcer (color man) Mike Bellotti seems fun at parties.• Does it ever feel like KSU games have the weirdest scores ever? I feel like they always score or have scored upon them numbers like 26, 43, 19, 32 and 39. This game was no different.• I think I’m going to write a column about this, but Gundy’s decision at the end of the first half was mildly perplexing although the 15-yard penalty on Zach Crabtree didn’t help. After the half, ABC reported that Gundy said he didn’t go for it at end of half because more bad could happen than good. Here’s my column crux: I think Gundy sort of fancies himself as Kansas State.• This poor man.All of us right now. pic.twitter.com/leFdk4FwSK— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) November 5, 2016Don’t turn it over, be sound in special teams and rely on the run if you can. An “eff you” coordinator has turned into a legitimately conservative, wise head coach. This is a good thing most of the time although once a year around Thanksgiving or the week after against that other team in the state of Oklahoma it starts to drive me nutty.• Kansas State was 5/13 on third downs. I guarantee you Glenn Spencer’s group won’t get enough credit for that.• What do you think the longest fourth down Bill Snyder has ever attempted was in a non-end-of-game situation? A yard? Five feet?• At least Kansas State’s QB didn’t get hurt and Snyder work some of his Harry Potter voodoo with a 29th string walk-on WR who is only on the team to raise its APR?• I was a big fan of Kansas State’s helmets. • As bad as the third quarter was, Oklahoma State was still within two entering the fourth quarter. That is sort of remarkable in retrospect considering the penalties, turnovers and special teams play in that 15-minute span.• Related: That end-of the-third-quarter drive and TD from Rudolph to Hays was big boy, Big 12 title-saving stuff.• This is weird.Yards per rush by #okstate this year:@ Kansas State — [email protected] Kansas — 5.0Nothing else over 4— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) November 6, 2016• At one point I wrote, “You gotta have a turnover on defense to win.” Little did I know it would come with 0:00 on the clock.• There was a lot of talk about whether Carson should have taken a knee at the one-yard-line with 1:45 left. I think my general rule there is to not get too cute although I understand where people are coming from. Kansas State had two timeouts at the time so you could have presumable run 1:15 off the clock and left them with 30 seconds to drive most of the field to kick a FG for the win. With the way they were performing in the kick return game, probably not something you want to mess with.• This dude!I think Rob Glass has been working with this referee. pic.twitter.com/TZdQYbnZTc— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) November 5, 2016• Speaking of — Kansas State averaged 28.4 return yards on kickoffs. OSU is allowing 17.11 on average.• Blake Jarwin’s previous career high in yards was 50. He had 96 on Saturday.• Ugh. Kansas State is sporting digital camo helmets for Ft. Riley Day at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. #EMAW #OKState pic.twitter.com/6K7vgZmyxe— Dylan Buckingham (@DylanBuckingham) November 5, 2016• Remember that fake FG Snyder ran in the third quarter? That told me he didn’t think KSU could stop Oklahoma State’s offense (and it couldn’t).• Related: Oklahoma State racked up 637 yards which is the most against KSU since it gave up 658 to Texas Tech last November.• On a scale of Adarius Bowman playing basketball to 10, how bad was the Rudolph pick-six?Not great. https://t.co/8VssxrHONI— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) November 5, 2016• Justice Hill is really patient. He has a lot of great qualities. I think that might be one of the more underrated ones. Watch him here. He only gains three yards, but he looks like a veteran with his patience and cutting.• Oklahoma State didn’t punt in the first half. Not really helping Zach Sinor’s Heisman campaign, are we? You know, Jim Harbaugh is out here letting his dudes play 24 positions and we can’t even let Sinor have an 85-yard field to blast one. Sad!• I’m not sure I knew you could advance a blocked punt. Kinda embarrassing that I run a college football blog.• They recovered!When you see Baylor is getting housed and know you control your own B12 destiny if you win, but you can’t beat a team that doesn’t pass. pic.twitter.com/VOaboaX9Qf— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) November 5, 2016 #okstate Mike Gundy said Vili Leveni is out for the year. Crushing for a promising player who missed last season.— Mark Cooper (@mark_cooperjr) November 5, 2016• We got Brad Underwood, too, Kansas State!• One of the biggest plays of the game for me was a third and three KSU had at its own 35 with six minutes left. They were still up two at the time, and Oklahoma State somehow stopped them, got it back and promptly went 80 yards for the win.• Jesse Ertz ran it 30 times!

  • Mason Rudolph’s Biggest Weakness

    first_imgThe South Carolina native often didn’t look as comfortable in away games, often fumbling the ball or making silly mistakes. Against Oklahoma in the season finale, Rudolph arguably had his worst game of the season.Rudolph struggled away from home in 2015 as well. He had a number of mediocre performances, including his three-turnover performance against Texas (including a pick-six and scoop-and-score) and a three interception game against West Virginia (in which he also had a safety). Both games OSU somehow won.Statistics are one thing, but most importantly, Rudolph just looks different away from home. The biggest thing with Rudolph isn’t necessarily the stats or the gaudy numbers. It’s the eye test.Without context, his 2016 stats would indicate that he is an NFL-ready quarterback with gaudy college numbers and excellent size. But after watching his performance throughout the season, there were times where he just didn’t look ready for the next level. So it’s not that Rudolph always performed significantly worse when not on OSU’s turf. He just looked different.This is not to say that he didn’t have clutch performances on opposing team’s home fields. 2014 Bedlam and 2016 Kansas State are excellent examples of Rudolph taking control, especially in the clutch. There’s no doubt that Rudolph is a good quarterback. But don’t think that he’s coming back to OSU just to win a championship; he has some growing to do as a player, too.

Neutral578964%26451155.12-1 Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph’s 2016 numbers were impressive. Not only did he have 28 touchdowns and only four interceptions, but the senior-to-be racked up over 4,000 passing yards and capped a successful 2016 season with an emphatic 38-8 win over Colorado in the Alamo Bowl.His name is constantly being thrown out in the preseason as a potential early-round draft pick and a serious contender for the Heisman Trophy. But in order to do that, Rudolph is going to have to fix one major foible in his game, and that’s his performance away from home.Rudolph tore up teams at home in both 2015 and 2016. This year at Boone Pickens Stadium, Rudolph had a quarterback rating of 173.6, which would put him at second in the conference behind Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield. But his away QBR of 138.5 would tie him with Iowa State’s Jacob Park, who was sixth among Big 12 quarterbacks in 2016.Even with more simplistic statistics, the difference is clear. Rudolph’s completion percentage, which is used to determine one’s QBR, was 65 percent at home and 60 percent away in 2016.His career stats tell a similar story. There is a Home Rudolph and a Road Rudolph, and it seems at times they are completely different players.last_img read more

FRISCO, Tex. — It was bound to come up, and Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy jumped all over it.When asked about the status of his mullet, Gundy priced his locks rather high.“I’m gonna say that the dollar figure is somewhere in the millions for the amount of time we’ve had on the air for that,” he said. “I was very fortunate to get a new contract and should probably get an extension and a raise for that free marketing for the university.”Gundy said he recently trimmed the mullet after it got to “ponytail potential.” He said there are no plans of ridding it any time soon though, instead he plans to “probably let it grow.” That’s probably a good thing for all of us.AdChoices广告Sportscenter and hockey analyst Barry Melrose had Gundy on a few months ago, which certainly boosted the mullet’s popularity.

Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Both men have been able to achieve icon status, with a man who played against and alongside two of the finest performers to have ever graced the game admitting that there is little to choose between the pair.Former Portugal international Gomes told Goal: “I played against one who was one of the best ever, the Ronaldo phenomenon.“His qualities were simply so impressive. I believe I have never seen a player like him in that position again.“I played with Cristiano Ronaldo too, and I compare them a lot, despite the different physical and positioning issues.“I saw things in Cristiano that I also saw in Ronaldo – explosion, speed dribbling. Ronaldo is one of the best of them all.”Emulating Ronaldo will be nigh on impossible for the current crop of Portuguese talent, but the Euro 2016 champions did have high hopes for Renato Sanches.He formed part of that European Championship-winning squad and landed the prestigious Golden Boy prize, but the 20-year-old has regressed since then – with a high-profile move to Bayern Munich and subsequent loan switch to Swansea City seeing him struggle for form and confidence.Renato Sanches PortugalGomes said of a player he feels enjoyed too much, too soon: “I do not know if Bayern Munich was the best choice. But that is easy to say now.“Renato did not do well in Germany, although I believe he can still play well at Bayern Munich.“Despite being a great player, having been national champion with Benfica and in Europe with the Portuguese national team, we are talking about a player of only 20 years. These things can happen.“The rise of Renato Sanches was very fast. I remember seeing him in the same season playing for the juniors and two weeks later being in team B, then another two weeks later making a debut in the main team, 15 days later playing a Champions League match, a few months later in the Portuguese team, then champion of Europe, then negotiating with Bayern. In the space of nine months everything changed. It’s not easy.“Today we can say: ‘Oh, if he had stayed another season at Benfica then things would be better’. That’s probably true.“Playing two consecutive years in the Portuguese league better prepares players for other, more demanding challenges. But the offer arrived and Benfica could not refuse.“Today Swansea is a good option for him. In football, sometimes it is better to take a step back and then take two steps forward.”last_img read more
