Ex-Magpies chairman defends Pardew
He told talkSPORT: “If you don’t give the guy the right ammunition, he’s not going to win. “I’m the last one to tell them to start changing managers because I had quite a few in my time there. Sometimes you have got to bite the bullet, though. “Where Pardew is concerned, if you don’t give him the money to buy players, then you are going to get into trouble. “Newcastle must buy players in the close season. Pardew has been told to achieve 10th position at worst, and he has done what he was asked to do. “The best manager in the world is not going to be successful if he isn’t given the money and the right players.” Pardew is currently in the process of thrashing out a summer transfer strategy with owner Mike Ashley, managing director Lee Charnley and chief scout Graham Carr as he attempts to rebuild his squad. Press Association The 52-year-old came under intense criticism as the season drew to a close with a run of seven defeats in eight Barclays Premier League games. However, Shepherd believes Pardew has not been given the backing he needs in the transfer market. Former Newcastle chairman Freddy Shepherd has defended current manager Alan Pardew as he fights to win over the club’s fans.

Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield But every nine-game winning streak was once a three-game winning streak, which is what the Angels now take into Thursday’s off day. On Friday they open a three-game series against the Oakland A’s, who now hold the second AL wild-card spot. The Angels (58-58) have not seen the A’s since June 17.The Angels are hoping they’ll have both Mike Trout and Tyler Skaggs back for this weekend. Trout, who has now missed seven straight games because of a jammed right wrist, is expected to return to the lineup on Friday. Skaggs, on the disabled list with a left groin issue, said he’s ready to start on Saturday, the first day he’s eligible.Beyond getting back two of their best players, the Angels finally have some momentum from a winning streak.“It’s always good sweeping a series, my teammates and everyone are upbeat,” Jaime Barría said through an interpreter. “It’s a way better atmosphere.”Barría pitched 5-2/3 innings on a sweltering afternoon, not allowing multiple baserunners until he got pulled in the sixth. It was Barría’s best outing since a June 1 game when he pitched six scoreless innings. Jefry Marte also had a pair of hits, driving in a run in the first and doubling and scoring a run on a José Briceño hit in the sixth.The Angels scored 23 runs in three games against the White Sox, all without Trout.“You never want to play too many games without a guy like Mike, but we’ve been forced to and we’ve been holding our own,” Manager Mike Scioscia said. “In this series, we definitely looked good in the batter’s box.”Related Articles PreviousANAHEIM, CA – AUGUST 08: Manager Mike Scioscia congratulates Shohei Ohtani #17 of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim after defeating the Detroit Tigers 6-0 in a game at Angel Stadium on August 8, 2018 in Anaheim, California.

Visitors can talk one-on-one with agronomists about everything from weed control to cover crops.The Review, Sept. 20-22, is a three-day trade show for everything agricultural. It features field demonstrations, more than 630 exhibitors, and 180 educational presentations.It also features Ohio State University Extension’s Agronomic Crops Team, who will meet with Review visitors, provide demonstrations and make presentations.Harold Watters, agronomist for the college, expects most discussions at the Agronomic Crops Demonstration plots to surround nutrient management and soil quality. The plots are between the general parking lot and Gates B and C, just east of the main Review grounds.“Nutrient management is driving a lot of our training right now, with concerns surrounding water quality,” Watters said. “There’s also a high interest in soil quality, because of efforts to improve soils so that water soaks in rather than running off.“We are not conducting research here, but our demonstration plots illustrate the research we are conducting elsewhere,” Watters said. “We can talk with farmers about what we are seeing in the research and how it applies to their operation.”Nutrient management demonstration plots compare the timing and placement of fertilizer and manure applications. Soil quality demonstrations look at various residue, cover crop and additive approaches.The Agronomic Crops Demonstrations include:• Nutrient management demonstrations — timing and placement.• Nutrient management — manure use.• Soybean and corn pests and diseases.• Nitrogen management for corn and soybeans.• Long-term soil quality plots.• Cover crops.• Corn planted into a cover crop.• Herbicide technology plots.• Weed management.• Antique corn plots and the relation to today’s genetically modified crops.• Agronomic Crops Presentations, held at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. each day.• Nitrogen management: See crop sensors at work.• On the spray table: Choosing tips for herbicide tolerant crops.• Soil quality sampling and results.• Take the weed ID quiz.
House passes disaster aid
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Jerry Hagstrom DTN Political Correspondent and Chris Clayton DTN Ag Policy EditorWASHINGTON (DTN) — Congress returned Monday amidst some of the greatest uncertainty for agriculture in decades, with corn and soybean planting behind schedule, commodity prices low, and trade conflicts with China and Mexico worse than before the Memorial Day congressional recess.The House voted early Monday evening on a $19.1 billion supplemental appropriations bill that includes aid to farmers and ranchers who experienced hurricanes and wildfires in 2018 and flooding this year. The measure passed 354-58 on June 3.The vote comes as the Missouri River again is rising because of continual rain throughout the basin. The Arkansas River is also inundating farm ground in Oklahoma and Arkansas, and locks and dams on the Mississippi River remain shut down as the Corps of Engineers looks for ways to relieve pressure on the system.The Senate passed the disaster bill before leaving for the recess. The House attempted to pass the bill by unanimous consent, but objections from three Republican House members stopped those efforts.The bill — technically the Senate Amendment to H.R. 2157 sponsored by House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita Lowey, D-N.Y. — is listed on the suspension calendar and expected to pass easily. President Donald Trump is expected to sign it, although he left on a trip to the United Kingdom and France on Sunday evening.The bill specifically includes just over $3 billion to pay for farmer losses from disasters that occurred in 2018 and 2019. That is expected to cover Midwest farmers who lost stored grain this spring during flooding along the Missouri River basin.The disaster legislation also waives adjusted gross income caps for farmers under the Market Facilitation Program, a move that opens up trade aid to a larger group of higher-income farmers. The provision will become more important to those producers now that the Trump administration is planning a second year of Market Facilitation Program payments.Disaster aid may help farmers recover from past losses, but USDA continues to show historic delays in corn and soybean plantings across farm country. Because of that, the Food and Environment Reporting Network reported Monday, Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue hopes to have a “definite answer” by the end of this week whether MFP payments will be offered to farmers on prevented planting acres. FERN reported Perdue declined to offer other details of the new MFP payment rules.Under the disaster bill, several other USDA programs get specific funding to help farmers, ranchers and forests recover from disasters. The Emergency Conservation Program receives $558 million and the Emergency Watershed Protection Program receives $435 million.The bill also provided $600 million more supplemental disaster nutrition aid for Puerto Rico.For communities affected by disasters, the bill includes $600 million for the Economic Development Administration to provide development grants.For the Army Corps of Engineers, the bill includes under multiple accounts just under $2.5 billion total for various flood and hurricane controls, including repairs and emergency operations, as well as maintenance and natural disaster repairs.The bill also includes language requiring USDA to create a crop insurance program for hemp, starting in the 2020 crop year. Congress removed hemp as a controlled substance under the 2018 farm bill, and now as many as 45 states have some form of legislation to allow for hemp production.While high levels of precipitation are the primary factor in delayed planting, Farm Bureau also said farmers may take into account the Trump administration’s announcement that it will distribute another round of MFP due to the continuing trade conflict with China.“While USDA has not announced the rates, many farmers who may have otherwise taken the prevented planting option may look to plant something in order to participate in the MFP program as the original announcement stated that payments would only be paid on planted acres,” Farm Bureau said.Jerry Hagstrom can be reached at [email protected] him on Twitter @hagstromreportChris Clayton can be reached at [email protected] him on Twitter @ChrisClaytonDTN(AG/CZ)© Copyright 2019 DTN/The Progressive Farmer.

A City Council committee to consider regulatory proposal for dockless scooters

Faulconer’s office originally proposed a set of regulatory concepts in October, which the council’s Public Safety and Livable Neighborhoods Committee approved while requesting a fleshed-out version.Scooter riders would be banned from parking scooters and bicycles in hospital and school zones, beach area boardwalks, the perimeter of Petco Park and the north and south legs of the Embarcadero. Riders and scooter company employees would also only be able to park scooters in groups of four, with at least 40 feet between groups.Scooter speeds, currently a maximum of 15 mph, would be slowed to 8 mph in high-traffic areas like Spanish Landing, Petco Park and Balboa Park, and 3 mph on the Embarcadero and the Martin Luther King Jr. Promenade. Scooter companies would use geofencing technology to limit parking abilities and speeds in specific areas, technology that Bird already uses in areas like the Santa Monica Beach Bike Path.The city would also require scooter companies to apply for a six-month operational permit and pay $150 per scooter or bike each year. Scooter companies could only renew permits in January or June, at which time they could negotiate variables like fleet size.The committee is scheduled to meet at 1 p.m. Wednesday in the City Administration Building’s 12th floor Council Chambers at 202 C St. City Council members Mark Kersey, Chris Ward, Chris Cate and Vivian Moreno sit on the committee.
