Management at Dubai Irish have confirmed that they signed Michel Salgado as back-up to Doherty who has recently suffered an injury.Management also indicated that Doherty’s waistline had bulged over the off season and they’ve tailored a special training programme to whip him back into shape.If the influential Doherty does miss out Salgado who runs the Spanish Soccer Academy in Dubai is a pretty good replacement for the former Finn Harps and Termon GAA player.The Dubai Irish team posted the following message on their Facebook timeline, “Dubai Irish are delighted to announce the signing of former Real Madrid and Spain International, Michel Salgado! “The former Champions League winner signs on a one year deal and will give cover to James Doc for the season!!‪#‎DubaiIrish‬ ‪#‎WelcomeSalgado‬ FORMER FINN HARPS PLAYER KEEPING EX REAL MADRID STAR OUT OF STARTING XI IN DUBAI was last modified: September 10th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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) Tags:newsSportlast_img read more

(Image: Thiri Mariah Boucher)Mary Alexander“I don’t speak ‘African’ because ‘African’ is not a language.” “Africans do not all look alike.” “Africa existed before colonialism.” These are just some of the messages young Africans studying in the US are sending out in a new viral photographic campaign.Called The Real Africa: Fight the Stereotypes, the campaign was launched in January by members of the African Students’ Association  at Ithaca College.  The college, a private institution in central New York state, is ranked as a top journalism and film school.“This campaign aims to educate and create awareness about our beautiful continent,” the association said when launching the campaign on its Facebook page. “We also hope that you can help us share these photos, whether it is sharing it, making it your profile photo, tweeting it, or even liking it. The simplest actions can create awareness and we are hoping to not only do that campus-wide but also world-wide.”The photos were taken by Ithaca student Thiri Mariah Boucher.

2019 Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour – Eastern Leg – Day 3

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Day three of the 2019 Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour saw scouts up and running as their transversing Illinois and part of Iowa. Stay tuned as the updates roll in throughout the day from Ohio Ag Net’s Joel Penhorwood, thanks to AgXplore, Tomorrow’s Science for Today’s Yield.Stop 10 – Cedar County, IACorn: Less than impressed with 156 bpa on this field. Health isn’t too bad, but will only go down from here.Soybeans: A great pod count on this final stand for our leg. Consistently good beans on the last several stops.PFTour19_Day3_Stop10_IMG_4057PFTour19_Day3_Stop10_IMG_4058PFTour19_Day3_Stop10_IMG_4060PFTour19_Day3_Stop10_IMG_4057PFTour19_Day3_Stop10_IMG_4058PFTour19_Day3_Stop10_IMG_4060PFTour19_Day3_Stop10_IMG_4057PFTour19_Day3_Stop10_IMG_4058PFTour19_Day3_Stop10_IMG_4060Stop 9 – Cedar County, IACorn: The best corn we have seen so far. Dent stage with deep kernel size so the yield might not be accurately reflected in the rough yield estimate of 193 bpa.Soybeans: A great field of beans at 1,480 pods in a 3×3’ square, the second highest of the day.Stop 8 – Clinton County, IACorn: Good corn, but not great. Likely a silage field and the yield estimate reflects such. 159 bpa corn.Soybeans: Beans are getting better the further away from sandy soils we get with 1,251 pods in a 3×3’ square.Stop 7 – Scott County, IACorn: This field has had low nitrogen, flooding, and then drought. It shows in the yield of 114.6 bpa.Soybeans: Wow there were a lot of pods here! 2,131.2 pods in a 3×3’ square.Stop 6 – Scott County, IACorn: Not a good way to start Iowa. A sandy field with corn on corn rotation. Tiny ears that totaled a 134 bpa estimate.Soybeans: A lot of pods in this field that doesn’t look so great from the road.PFTour19_Day3_Stop6_IMG_4045PFTour19_Day3_Stop6_IMG_4046PFTour19_Day3_Stop6_IMG_4047PFTour19_Day3_Stop6_IMG_4043PFTour19_Day3_Stop6_IMG_4045PFTour19_Day3_Stop6_IMG_4046PFTour19_Day3_Stop6_IMG_4047PFTour19_Day3_Stop6_IMG_4043PFTour19_Day3_Stop6_IMG_4045PFTour19_Day3_Stop6_IMG_4046Stop 5 – Henry County, ILCorn: Another field, way behind in maturity than where it should be. 163 bpa, bringing the five stop average to 156 this morning.Soybeans: 825 pods in a 3×3’ square. After five stops, 884 pods average.PFTour19_Day3_Stop5_IMG_4033PFTour19_Day3_Stop5_IMG_4036PFTour19_Day3_Stop5_IMG_4037PFTour19_Day3_Stop5_IMG_4032PFTour19_Day3_Stop5_IMG_4033PFTour19_Day3_Stop5_IMG_4036PFTour19_Day3_Stop5_IMG_4037PFTour19_Day3_Stop5_IMG_4032PFTour19_Day3_Stop5_IMG_4033PFTour19_Day3_Stop5_IMG_4036Stop 4 – Henry County, ILCorn: A field that came in at 149 bpa. Field was far behind for this part of the country. A bit of disease starting to show consistently immediately below ear.Soybeans: Overall beans are looking fairly consistent in this crop district at 985 pods in a 3×3’ square. Consistently good? Good question.PFTour19_Day3_Stop4_IMG_4029PFTour19_Day3_Stop4_IMG_4030PFTour19_Day3_Stop4_IMG_4031PFTour19_Day3_Stop4_IMG_4029PFTour19_Day3_Stop4_IMG_4030PFTour19_Day3_Stop4_IMG_4031PFTour19_Day3_Stop4_IMG_4029PFTour19_Day3_Stop4_IMG_4030PFTour19_Day3_Stop4_IMG_4031Stop 3 – Henry County, ILCorn: This field, other than several drowned out spots, looked decent. Population will be the main hurdle for this yield at 141.3 bpa estimated. So far disappointed in what has normally been a 200 bpa area, according to the farmers in our truck.Soybeans: 784.8 pods in a 3×3’ square.PFTour19_Day3_Stop3_IMG_4026PFTour19_Day3_Stop3_IMG_4027PFTour19_Day3_Stop3_IMG_4028PFTour19_Day3_Stop3_IMG_4026PFTour19_Day3_Stop3_IMG_4027PFTour19_Day3_Stop3_IMG_4028PFTour19_Day3_Stop3_IMG_4026PFTour19_Day3_Stop3_IMG_4027PFTour19_Day3_Stop3_IMG_4028Stop 2 – Knox County, ILCorn: Lots of GLS pressure in this corn and things are starting into dent. Estimate of 176.6 bpa.Soybeans: Another nice field. Not outstanding and not awfully low either.PFTour19_Day3_Stop2_IMG_4023PFTour19_Day3_Stop2_IMG_4024PFTour19_Day3_Stop2_IMG_4025PFTour19_Day3_Stop2_IMG_4020PFTour19_Day3_Stop2_IMG_4021PFTour19_Day3_Stop2_IMG_4022PFTour19_Day3_Stop2_IMG_4023PFTour19_Day3_Stop2_IMG_4024PFTour19_Day3_Stop2_IMG_4025PFTour19_Day3_Stop2_IMG_4020PFTour19_Day3_Stop2_IMG_4021PFTour19_Day3_Stop2_IMG_4022Stop 1 – Knox County, ILCorn: This corn was fired up pretty good, but is the furthest along stuff we’ve seen so far. Firing up very well past the ear leaf. Quite a bit of flower pressure on the outside rows, but good population. Dent stage corn. 151.8 bpa corn.Soybeans: A good looking soybean field with some potential. This area does look like its gotten drier recently. 872 pods in a 3×3’ square.last_img read more

New country souvenir, Bosnia and Herzegovina, with Geocache of the Week: Top of Bosnia and Herzegovina

first_imgThe border around Bosnia and Herzegovina is shaped like a heart, so it’s only natural that we show some love by announcing it as our newest Country/Regional souvenir!  SharePrint RelatedStari Most GC28FXB – GEOCACHE OF THE WEEK – July 9, 2012July 9, 2012In “Community”New country souvenir, Costa Rica, with Geocache of the Week: Rainbow Valley CacheMay 15, 2019In “Geocache of the Week”I FEEL sLOVEnia: Brand New Geocaching Country Souvenir for SloveniaNovember 16, 2015In “Community” Location: Bosnia and Herzegovina N 43° 16.870′ E 018° 43.980′ Continue to explore some of the most amazing geocaches around the world. A moderate hike to a beautiful overview of the entire country and a classic cache container to log and share your visit with those who will follow. Sarajevo is a growing destination for world travellers and listed as one of the best cities to visit world-wide. If you’re not a thrill seeker or hiker, Sarajevo is more your speed. Sink your teeth into some traditional ćevapi (the Balkan equivalent to a cheeseburger) or burek (a pastry filled with meat) to fuel your geocaching adventure. Like most seasoned athletes, it’s important to fuel up so you have the energy to check out these two caches at the ruinous 1984 Winter Olympics site: We know geocachers love country and regional souvenirs and we do too! We are releasing at least one new country/regional souvenir per month starting in January 2019. These new souvenirs will be featured alongside Geocaches of the Week in each region and shared on the third Wednesday of each month. Check out all of the Geocaching souvenirs here. What’s a better way to see the country than from at the top of it? Climbing mountains is good for keeping things in perspective, both in realizing how small of a world we live in and reflecting on the landscape in front of us. Bosnia and Herzegovina is blossoming with nature. Tumbling mountain ranges, hidden away castles, and ever-expansive forests draw in tourists from all over the world. Roughly 40% of the country is covered in pine, beech, and oak trees, teeming with wildlife. These forests aren’t the only tree-covered ecosystem in Bosnia and Herzegovina; it remains the only country in Europe to have a jungle. It’s called Perućica Rainforest, and some of the trees are over 300 years old. Malo Polje Igman Olympic Jumps: GC4K5A8 Traditional GC58W8A by raumangst Far outside of the capital city at an elevation of about 7,828 ft (2,386 m) is our Geocache of the Week: Top of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Maglić is the tallest mountain in the country. The hike to the summit is roughly 3 miles (4.7 km). Along the trail you can see herds of sheep chewing away at the long brown grass, rock faces peeping out between the patches of it, and a deep blue heart-shaped lake can be seen once you’re at elevation. At the top there’s a flag and below it is the cache.  [Lost place] Olympic bobsleigh track Sarajevo: GC7VD5R Check out all of the Geocaches of the Week on the Geocaching blog.
