Takeaways: Joe Pavelski is giving Sharks’ GM a lot to think about

first_imgSAN JOSE — The rematch ended up being a replay of the first game in reverse.After the St. Louis Blues (7-8-3) handed the Sharks (11-7-3, 25 points) their worst defeat of the season last week, the guys flipped the tables at SAP Center Saturday, putting together their best-defensive performance of the season in a 4-0 win.“It was a good answer back, showed that we’re for real,” goalie Aaron Dell said. “Send a message to them that that’s not going to happen every time they play us.”Erik Karlsson …last_img read more

Dan Uetrecht, Sept. 24

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We got started running corn on Saturday the 15th at 23% moisture. The other day we were down to 18%. We were really drying down nice. We just had a beautiful week of running. Conditions were good and the corn has been phenomenal.On the yield monitor there was a 3 in front of the yield a couple times. I’ve only ever seen that once or twice. We had a good-sized field average right at 250 bushels. We have about 200 acres run and it looks like this could be the best corn crop I’ve ever raised. Quality has been good. If we get more rain and winds that could be a concern, but everything is standing fine so far.A lot of guys have chosen to let it dry in the field longer. I have been surprised that more corn has not been run. The beans have not been ready yet.The river basis was at negative 80 the other day and storage is going to be crucial this year. I thought we had enough room, but the way this corn is going we may be short on storage. We’ll try to move out some corn and store beans because the corn basis sure isn’t good, but it is better than the bean basis.We had some great weather but it started raining early this morning and it looks like we are in for a couple of days of pretty heavy showers. The plan here is to concentrate on beans from here on out when we can get back in the fields. Then we can get some cover crops in behind that bean stubble. We want to get some rye and oats and clover in.If we can get the wheat planted on time we’ll plant the usual amount. The wheat price is probably the best of the three crops and we like the rotation.We also got cover crop seed on the harvested corn stalk ground. Almost all of the 200 acres have the rye spread and we have worked most of that in. We put fertilizer on based on soil samples and leaf tissue samples. We seem to be deficient on potassium this year and we lightly work that in with the cereal rye and get a good cover next spring.It is going to be a good crop. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we don’t have a wet fall.last_img read more

Muslim-majority Arab countries join yoga day celebrations

first_imgBy Youssra El-SharkawyCairo/Dubai, Jun 22 (PTI) Muslim-majority countries Egypt and the UAE joined the world in celebrating the third International Yoga Day with a large number of people performing yogic asanas which have gained popularity in the two Arab countries over the years.In Egypt, the most populous Arab country, a large number of people gathered before Iftar at the Baron Palace, a distinctive historic Indian-inspired mansion in Heliopolis, to practice yoga with professional trainers.In his speech during the celebration, Indias Ambassador to Egypt Sanjay Bhattacharyya thanked the local authorities and Ministry of Antiquities for their support in organising the event.He said Indian Embassy chose this year to hold the event at the Baron Palace as it is the only building in Egypt with architecture which is similar to Indian temples.”We have been changing the venues of the celebrations for the past years. The first time was at the India House (in Zamalek), last year it was at Al-Azhar Park and this year we thought to bring it to India,” the ambassador said.He said the celebration was held later in the day and not early in the morning due to the holy month of Ramazan. Muslims observe fast during the day time in Ramazan.Besides Cairo, the Indian Embassy is organising another IDY celebrations at the beachfront of Sheraton Montazah Hotel, Alexandria and at Nadi Moini, Gama al-Adima, Ismailia.Although yoga is part of India?s intangible cultural heritage, it has emerged as a global brand and is now being practiced internationally, including in Arab countries.advertisementDuring the past few years, schools and centres that teach yoga in Egypt have increased to about 50, the Indian envoy said.Yoga is one of the major classes offered by the Maulana Azad Centre for Indian Culture in Cairo and it is attended by a large number of people from different governorates in Egypt.”I have been practicing yoga for years and I am so happy that there is a yoga championship in Egypt,” said 27-year-old yoga trainer Amina Ihab, who participated in the yoga championship last month and received the first award in the category of above 18 years old.”I think that now Egyptians became more understandable for yoga, which is the science of the right living. It changes the body shape and benefit the soul,” she added.Another winner of the championship, Egyptian-Lebanese Dani Koury, said the reason behind the increasing number of women yoga practitioners – which exceeds men in Egypt – may be due to wrong promotions by some centres or schools.”Yoga is for all people and all ages. However, some people have commercially promoted yoga as a light sport for women, which made men more shy of doing a sport which is being described as for women. But yoga has different positions some of them are tough and it suits all people,” said Khoury, who is preparing himself to be a yoga instructor.Ibrahim Mamoud, 23, said that for him yoga is a very important healing process.”It is not just for flexibility in your body or your soul, it is healing. It is very important as it keeps you healthy and young and makes you believe in yourself and that everything is possible,” said Mahmoud, who has been practicing yoga for the last two years.One year ago, Amany Yasser, 40, with her three daughters and mother went as a family to MACIC to learn yoga.”Yoga is very interesting. We travelled different places across Egypt to practice it as part of the centres events,” said Yasser, who is the winner of the First Award of the below 50 category.Yassers five-year-old daughter Laila Nader Abdel Rahman is the youngest yoga practitioner at the MACIC while her mother Laila Mahmoud Helmi, 72, is the oldest.Helmi, who won the First Award of the yoga championship of the above 50 category, said she found that yoga improves body flexibility, self-confidence and character.In the UAE capital Abu Dhabi, over 4,000 people participated in a yoga session where various yoga associations exhibited their different styles.The highlight of the programme was the ushering of the main event with Laughter Yoga which injected a good deal of happiness among the Emiratis dignitaries, diplomats and nationals of several countries. A 25-minutes film on Yoga Harmony with Nature was also screened.Indian Ambassador Navdeep Suri thanked Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahayan, Minister of Culture and Knowledge Development and Sheikha Lubna bint Khalid Al Qasimi, UAE Minister of State for Tolerance, for gracing the International Day of Yoga celebrations in the month of Ramazan.advertisement”Yoga embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfilment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being,” Sheikh Nahayan said in his speech.He also noted that India and the UAE have enjoyed a long and fulfilling relationship.”We are all thankful for the opportunity presented by this celebration for promoting the friendship and understanding that exists between our two countries,” he said.Sheikha Lubna highlighted yogas importance as a force promoting tolerance, acceptance, and peace in the world.She hoped International Day of Yoga will bring inner and outer peace, and lead the way toward more tolerant societies.She drew a parallel between the holy month of Ramazan, efforts of her Ministry of Tolerance and the message of harmony and peace conveyed by International Day of Yoga.

(CHEERING/APPLAUSE) I was there with my three colleagues; we were there for a very difficult debate that lasted for months. I was there when at the end of the vote, when those who had voted for the flag got up to sing Oh Canada, unfortunately they were booed… but politics creates changes, sometimes for the better, sometimes not for the better but that is democracy and democracy is there when we need it.” PanAm Junior Games countdown on Ex-Govt Consultant ordered to leave TCI Canada offers help in financial services sector to TCI Working Grouplast_img read more

Senate Passes Disaster Aid Package Lawmaker Blocks House Approval
Senate Passes Disaster Aid Package Lawmaker Blocks House Approval

first_img ADC AUTHOR The GOP-controlled Senate easily passed a $19.1 billion disaster aid package Thursday after lawmakers persuaded President Donald Trump to pull border aid from the stalled bill, CQ reported Thursday.The aid package included $2.7 billion to help military installations damaged by Hurricanes Florence and Michael last year and in flooding this year, including Offutt Air Force Base, Neb., Tyndall Air Force Base, Fla., and Camp Lejeune, N.C.House lawmakers had already left for their Memorial Day recess, but the leadership attempted approval by unanimous consent Friday.That effort was blocked by Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas), a House Freedom Caucus member, who objected that the chamber had left Washington without holding a debate and floor vote, The Hill reported.“I’m here today primarily because if I do not object, Congress will have passed into law a bill that spends $19 billion of taxpayer money without members of Congress being present in our nation’s Capitol to vote on it,” Roy said on the floor.“Secondly, it’s a bill that includes nothing to address the clear national emergency and humanitarian crisis we have at our southern border,” he added.If approved, the measure would have gone to the president for his signature.Marine Corps photo by Cpl.
