Pulis: Middlesbrough star can go to the top

first_img Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook Embed from Getty ImagesMiddlesbrough boss Tony Pulis insisted Adama Traore has the potential to play at the top level after the winger scored his first goal for the club in their 3-0 win at QPR.Daniel Ayala’s header and George Friend’s brilliant strike put Boro in control by half-time and Traore sealed their win with five minutes remaining.“He can be frustrating at times, but I’m telling you if he works it out then he could be anything,” Pulis said.“You look at the top clubs in the Premier League and they’ve all got that electric pace and no-one’s as quick as this boy is.Embed from Getty Images“He’s starting to work it out a bit now and hopefully the penny drops. All we’re asking him to do is what he’s good at, which is to run forward with the ball and run forward without the ball.“When he does that, as you saw today, he’s unplayable.”Middlesbrough’s resounding win was their third consecutive away victory and they were comfortable once Ayala’s nodded them in front in the 24th minute.“In the first 15 minutes we looked a little bit out of sorts and QPR started really brightly,” said Pulis.“As soon as we got a goal we then went on and deservedly won the game.“For the players to put in that kind of performance and show that bit of character, I’m really pleased.“We played some good stuff at times, created opportunities, and when we had to roll our sleeves up and battle we restricted them to not many opportunities.”last_img read more

Is SCN impacting your soybean yields?

0 Comments

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Typically, soybeans may begin to show symptoms of soybean cyst nematode (SCN) damage by July 1st. SCN is a parasitic roundworm that feeds on the soybean root system. The cyst stage of the nematode’s life cycle is when the female nematode is filled with eggs. Cysts are visible throughout the summer on soybean roots and will appear as small, white, and lemon-shaped. After the female matures, these cysts are hard to see. When trying to identify SCN presence on soybean roots, it is important not to confuse cysts with Rhizobium nodules (where N fixation takes place).How can you determine if SCN is causing damage and yield loss to your soybeans? Injury symptoms include yellowing and stunting of plants. These symptoms may appear in patches of a field. These patches may grow from year to year; especially in the direction a field is tilled. Symptoms may become worse when plants are under other stresses in addition to SCN injury and can be confused with other issues, such as nutrient deficiencies. Soil in fields where SCN damage is suspected should be sampled and sent to a lab for analysis. The population level of SCN will determine the specific practices required to manage the problem.Depending on the population level and the amount of damage being done, growers will have a few management options to consider. Planting soybean varieties with resistance to SCN is critical in fields where the parasite is present. Rotation away from soybeans to a non-host crop (such as corn) can also lessen the amount of SCN injury. In high population fields growers should rotate to a non-host crop for multiple years. It is also important to effectively control weeds, some of which can be SCN hosts as well. For more information and to see a list of SCN host plants, click here.last_img read more

We have something to build on.”The Azkals will take a two-hour bus ride to Abu Dhabi late Tuesday as they prepare for their duel with China on Friday. Getting a result against the Chinese is paramount for Eriksson’s side if it wants to advance to the last 16. DUBAI—It was a debut many years in the making and the Philippines surely left its mark, notwithstanding the result.On a cold Monday night at Al Maktoum Stadium, the Azkals combined their grit and resilience with their tactical genius and work rate for the continent to see in a 1-0 defeat to a giant in South Korea in their Group C opener.ADVERTISEMENT Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting “Everyone thought Korea would win this game, but we saw in the first half that it was not easy,” said the midfielder. “It was a tough game for us. I’m happy to get a result, but the Philippines is good.

Lisa Ann Recounts How She Met Notre Dame WR Justin Brent, “I Love My Little 19 Year Old”

Stanford defeated Notre Dame 37-14. (Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images)Last October, Notre Dame freshman wide receiver Justin Brent went to a New York Knicks game with Lisa Ann. The now-retired adult film star posted a couple pictures of the pair on Instagram and, later that evening, a selfie of them in bed together.    This might have gotten Brent in trouble with Fighting Irish coach Brian Kelly, who said the freshman was in his “doghouse” and “gets distracted easily” near the conclusion of the 2014 season. We haven’t seen any photos of Brent and Ann together since the Knicks game. It’s unclear if they still keep in touch. In an interview with GQ‘s Myles Brown, Ann recounted how she met the Notre Dame wide receiver. You were with Justin Brent recently…. I love my little 19 year old.How’d that start?I met him at a restaurant. We exchanged numbers. He was going to be on break from school and I was like, “Hey, why don’t you come to the city and we’ll go to a Knicks game.”I like these new friendships in a weird mentor kinda way. I don’t have children. Because I did porn, guys are just so honest with me, asking me sexual questions they might not want to ask their friends.Those answers came from a lengthy interview with GQ in which Ann describes her relationships with athletes. It’s a fascinating read. [GQ]last_img read more

The government has already given its approval to induct the Ayurveda practitioners as the CHOs. It may be mentioned here that the process of recruiting the CHO at various community health centre began in 2017. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaIn the following year, around 510 nursing staffers were recruited as CHOs at various community health centers in the state. But, Ayurveda practitioners were not brought under this ambit. Many Ayurveda practitioners and their organisations articulated their demands of being recruited as the CHOs and also urged the government in this regard.

Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highwayIt may also be mentioned here that all the community health centres in the districts have already been upgraded to health and wellness centre for providing better health care facilities to the patients. More than 10,300 primary health centres are in the process of getting upgraded to health and wellness centers. State health department has already started training progremmes for the nursing professional before they are inducted as the CHO at these centers. Where there is an acute shortage of doctors at various health and wellness centres in the rural areas, these trained CHOs are supposed to provide primary health care. The Bengal government already started six months bridge course for nurses under the National Health Mission. Around 1920 posts of CHOs have been created in the state for the financial year 2019-20. It is up to the state government to decide in what ratio they would induct the nursing personnel and the ayurveda practitioners. Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee laid enormous emphasis on the development of the Ayurveda infrastructure in the state. The Union Health Ministry earlier urged all the state governments to recruit both Ayurveda practitioners and nurses as CHOs at all the health and wellness centers after they complete the bridge course. The steps have been taken after the Centre found a shortage of doctors at various health centres in the rural areas. The Bengal chapter of National Ayurveda Students’ and Youth Association (NASYA) also urged the top government officials to appoint the Ayurveda practitioners as CHOs. “We are in the process of recruiting Ayurveda practitioners as community health officers at various health wellness centers,” a senior official at the state Ayush department said.last_img read more
