Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest last week was the heart of March Madness and National Ag Week. Those two divergent topics met on a basketball court in Sioux Falls, SD on Friday.The reigning national champions and undefeated 2018 Ashland University Women’s Basketball Team from Ohio played for the Division 2 Championship. Two of the stars are Ohio farm girls.“Two of the starters are farm kids,” said Randy Brown who farms in Wyandot County, is an AU alum and a big basketball fan. “Andi Daugherty is from Fresno, Ohio, and went to Riverview High School. She is a senior and has scored over 2,000 points in her career. Her parents are Bill and Caroline Daugherty. They have a dairy farm. Renee Stimpert is from Ashland County. She is a sophomore and went to Ashland Crestview. Her parents are Fred and Mary Stimpert. They raise hogs and cattle.”Brown said that Andi’s sister Kari also had a great career playing basketball at AU and is presently on the AU Women’s Basketball Coaching Staff.“I am proud to be an Alum at AU and I love to brag on any farm kids that I am aware of that excel in sports,” Brown said.AU has 6,600 students on the campus in Ashland and the Women’s Basketball team had won a jaw-dropping 73 games in a row. The final was on Friday and, unfortunately, it was an upset of historic proportions when No. 6 Central Missouri ended No. 1 Ashland’s winning streak to win the 2018 Division II Women’s Basketball Championship, winning 66-52. Nonetheless, it was fun for many cheering as Ohio farm girls took the national stage.
Former Bihar Chief Minister Jagannath Mishra passed away in a hospital in Delhi on Monday. He was 82. He had been unwell for the last several months.Dr. Mishra was Chief Minister of the State in 1975, 1980 and in 1989-90. He was the State’s last Congress Chief Minister. In December 1989, the then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi made him Chief Minister to control the situation in the wake of the Bhagalpur communal riots. He ruled for 95 days, but could not stop the Janata Dal from coming to power in March 1990.Dr. Mishra, who was affectionately called Doctor Sahib, later joined the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and then moved on to JD(U).He was Agriculture Minister in Prime Minister P.V. Narsimha Rao government at the Center in 1995. His elder brother Lalit Narayan Mishra was Railway Minister in Indira Gandhi’s regime. His son Nitish Mishra was a Minister in Nitish Kumar’s Cabinet, but subsequently joined the BJP.Dr. Mishra, before he joined politics, was an economics professor at Bihar University. He has authored several research papers and books.He courted controversy when his government brought in the draconian “Bihar Press Bill” in 1982, which prohibited the publication, sale and possession of any printed matter that was “scurrilous, grossly indecent or intended for blackmail.” The move was slammed as an attempt to “gag the freedom of the Press.” A year later, however, the bill had to be withdrawn as it did not get the presidential assent.Dr. Mishra was also an accused in the multi-crore fodder scam cases and was convicted in some. But he was granted bail by a court in Ranchi.Chief Minister Nitish Kumar declared a three-day State mourning. Congress president Sonia Gandhi extended her condolences. “As a three-time Congress Chief Minister of Bihar, Union Cabinet Minister and PCC President on many occasions, Dr. Mishra always stood for the interests of the deprived and the marginalised minorities in society,” she said. Dr. Mishra will be cremated with full State honours at his ancestral village Balua Bazar in Supaul district on Wednesday.

TAMPA, FL – JANUARY 1: Head coach Jim Harbaugh of the Michigan Wolverines looks on from the sidelines during the second quarter of the Outback Bowl NCAA college football game against the South Carolina Gamecocks on January 1, 2018 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. (Photo by Brian Blanco/Getty Images)As a child, I don’t remember ever being that enthralled about Career Day – even though it meant the cancellation of normal classes. But if Michigan’s head coach had shown up to talk college football, perhaps I’d have a different opinion.Wednesday morning, Harbaugh attended his daughter Addison’s Career Day, and brought along a friend. Harbaugh was able to get New Orleans Saints star quarterback Drew Brees to stop by too – presumably to talk about the art of being a professional signal-caller.It looks like the kids all received Michigan hats as well. Pretty cool.Thanks to @drewbrees for stopping by my daughter Addie’s Career Day this morning. pic.twitter.com/tPVPd8NEI5— Coach Harbaugh (@CoachJim4UM) April 13, 2016Perhaps a future Wolverines star is in the bunch.

The Ohio State men’s lacrosse team huddles before its 8-7 win over University of Massachusetts on Feb. 18. Credit: Courtesy of OSU AthleticsThe No. 18 Ohio State men’s lacrosse team didn’t just make a statement against No. 1 Denver; it annihilated the top team in the nation.Freshman forward Tre LeClaire led the Buckeyes (8-0) with five goals as they demolished the Pioneers, 16-7, at Ohio Stadium. LeClaire is the the team’s overall leading scorer and making a case for national freshman of the year.OSU coach Nick Myers said he saw the potential in LeClaire on the recruiting trail, and it’s not a surprise the way he is playing in his first season in Columbus.“He’s working hard and he’s a humble kid, but he’s in a position where he knows he has to shoot the ball when his hands are free,” Myers said. “And I thought he did a nice job of that today.”Senior attack Eric Fannell and senior midfielder Johnny Pearson each had a hat trick.OSU redshirt senior goaltender Tom Carey was excellent in net, saving 11-of-17 shots on goal. Carey made his first save within seconds of the first faceoff by deflecting Denver junior midfielder Trevor Baptiste’s first shot of the game. After that, the Buckeyes pounced with three quick goals in the first period.LeClaire opened the scoring for OSU, but following a goal from Denver’s senior midfielder Tyler Pace, the Buckeyes exploded on offense, refusing to let up.With 11:50 remaining in the first period, Pearson took the 2-1 lead. Then, ten seconds later, Fannell scored a goal. Pearson scored his second of the day with 4:26 remaining in the first. Before the end of the quarter, senior midfielder J.T. Blubaugh put another on the board for an early 5-1 lead.In the second quarter the Buckeyes continued to shutdown the Pioneers’ offense. LeClaire scored twice and junior attack Colin Chell scored once, giving OSU a stunning 8-1 lead at the half.To open the third quarter, the Buckeyes put two more on the more to cap 10 unanswered goals and an insurmountable 11-1 lead.Myers said he told the team to keep going at the Pioneers and not to let up.“I told the team at halftime to stay aggressive,” he said. “We need to play another 30 minutes of Buckeye lacrosse and — versus a team like Denver — we have been in that position before and we can’t let up.”Fannell scored twice in the quarter with assists from freshman midfielder Ryan Terefenko and Chell.With 2:32 left in the third quarter, the Pioneers finally got on the board again when Connor Cannizzaro scored, but LeClaire answered emphatically with his fifth of the day and second in the quarter, giving OSU a 12-2 lead after three.In the fourth, Denver outscored OSU 5-4, but little did that matter.Terefenko, Blubaugh, Pearson and senior attack Austin Shanks all scored in the quarter, suppressing any chance of a comeback.Sophomore attack Austin French, junior midfielder Sean Mayle, freshman attack Ethan Walker, sophomore midfielder Colin Rutan and junior attack Colton McCaffrey all scored for the Pioneers in the quarter.Fannell said this victory should grant OSU more respect than it had been receiving.“We know as a team that we’re good and (if) people aren’t going to give us recognition, then we’re going to keep running it down teams’ throats,” he said.Next week OSU will travel to South Bend, Indiana, to play No. 2 Notre Dame in an attempt to extend their undefeated season and beat another top program.
Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius has admitted that his long-term future at the club is now in doubt following the arrival of Alisson from AS Roma for a world record £67mThe German goalkeeper will likely lose his spot as Liverpool’s first-choice for the new season with Alisson set to officially join his new teammates next week once his summer holiday is over, having been a member of Brazil’s World Cup squad.And the 25-year-old is expected to be thrown straight into the firing line at Liverpool with head coach Jurgen Klopp expected to give him his debut against Napoli on August 4 in Dublin.But while Klopp has maintained that Karius is an “outstanding goalkeeper”, the 25-year-old is aware that he will likely play a supporting role to Alisson next season and he now believes that he has to reconsider his future – despite only having arrived from German side Mainz in 2016 in a five-year deal.Virgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“Of course that’s not perfect for me, but I cannot say much more about that either,” said Karius, according to the Daily Mail.“I do not know that (whether he will leave before the deadline); I cannot say what I’m doing right now, there’s still some time left.”Karius has endured a difficult time following his infamous blunders against Real Madrid in May’s Champions League final.And to make matters worse, it appears that things are going from bad to worse for Karius after making two critical errors in Liverpool’s pre-season friendlies.
Neymar is determined to prove to everyone that he can score goals as spectacularly as Cristiano Ronaldo doesThe Paris Saint-Germain forward has returned to the Brazil squad for the international break.Neymar has put his lacklustre World Cup campaign behind him to score in all four of PSG’s opening games of the new Ligue 1 season.Now the 26-year-old is hoping to carry over his new found form for Brazil ahead of their friendlies against the United States and El Salvador.The Daily Mail reports that Neymar found the net with a spectacular effort from the edge of the box in a training session earlier today and proceeded to copy Ronaldo’s trademark celebration.Vidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.Brilliant finish from Neymar ?Cristiano Ronaldo celebration ? pic.twitter.com/3e4MdtVen4— Sport360° (@Sport360) September 5, 2018
Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享An ongoing spruce beetle outbreak has impacted more than 500,000 acres over the last two years in Southcentral Alaska, and the impacted acreage may expand in 2018, according to the Department of Forestry. Spruce beetles are native to Alaska spruce forests and outbreaks of varying size and intensity are known to have occurred throughout history. The outbreak is located primarily in the Susitna River drainage, watersheds adjacent to the Susitna drainage, and the northwestern Kenai Peninsula. Landowners can help their trees be less susceptible to spruce beetles by keeping trees healthy and growing vigorously. Pesticides are available for protecting trees from spruce beetle attack, but are not effective on trees that are already infested.
