Raiders take another shot at Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce

first_imgOAKLAND — The acquisitions the Raiders made in the offseason to upgrade their offensive and defensive lines and bolster their running game all paid dividends in their Week 1 win over the Denver Broncos.Now it’s time to see if the Raiders secondary, with Lamarcus Joyner but without Johnathan Abram, can slow down the Kansas City Chiefs and what is arguably the NFL’s best passing attack, led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes, receiver Sammy Watkins and tight end Travis Kelce.The Raiders host the …last_img

Input sought on SA wildlife distribution

first_img22 August 2013 The Department of Environmental Affair has invited members of the public to provide their input on maps reflecting the natural distribution range of 21 indigenous wild mammal species in South Africa. The species include impala, springbok, white rhino, eland, Cape buffalo, giraffe, kudu, black wildebeest and Cape mountain zebra. The department said earlier this month that it was developing the maps in phases, with the current set of maps including 21 indigenous mammal species “that are most commonly translocated within the wildlife industry”. Translocation of the animals is regulated in terms of both provincial and national biodiversity legislation, although factors considered in evaluating permit applications often differ between provinces. The maps are therefore expected to give clarity on the natural distribution range of South Africa’s wildlife, and to help with the evalutation of permit applications. The maps were developed based on a set of predetermined principles, including the historical distribution of species, as well as vegetation types indicate the sustainability of habitats to different species. To access the template for input submissions, and for more information on the distribution maps, follow this link. Members of the public are invited to submit their input by downloading the template and returning it via e-mail to [email protected] by 31 August 2013. Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more


USDA Touts Locks, Dams ROI

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Chris ClaytonDTN Ag Policy EditorALTON, Ill. (DTN) — Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue is pushing for increased spending on locks and dams in the upper Mississippi River and Illinois River so U.S. agriculture can boost sales and remain competitive in the coming decades.Perdue released a USDA study Wednesday stating that spending $6.3 billion over the next 10 years to upgrade the lock and dam system would boost agricultural sales as much as $142 billion through 2045.“This is where we need to be folks, right here,” Perdue told a group of farmers, local officials and barge industry representatives at the Alton, Illinois, lock and dam.The secretary frequently pointed to the “rate of return” from boosting investment to $6.3 billion in Corps of Engineers construction funds, which would boost GDP by $72 billion over time. Perdue added that global competitors are investing in infrastructure, and he noted that China is investing in Brazilian infrastructure. “If we want to remain as the superpower for food in the world, this is what we have got to do,” Perdue said.The secretary said global competitiveness was the driver behind the report. Perdue noted the production of corn and soybeans in the U.S. has a great deal to do with access to the waterways for exports. “Everybody is for infrastructure and wants to invest in infrastructure, but what difference does it make? I’m a return on investment guy, and that is what we wanted to have was a valid argument we could take to Congress to show this is what we get back when we are willing to invest,” Perdue said.The USDA report proposes a few scenarios for increased investment in inland waterways through 2045, or maintaining the status quo and reducing investment. Increased investment in the river would boost employment by 77,000 jobs and increase gross domestic product by $72 billion. Agricultural sales would rise from $354 billion to $496 billion, or 40%, over that time. Reducing investment in locks and dams would curb jobs, GDP and agricultural sales by nearly comparable amounts, the report stated.While calling for $6.3 billion more in direct construction investment over 10 years, the USDA analysis calls for increased funding through 2045 to rehabilitate existing locks and conduct routine maintenance that would cost just under $36 billion over that time span.USDA shows the costs of a metric ton of U.S. soybeans last year to Shanghai, China, — including the farm-gate price, was about $397.45 while from Mato Grosso, Brazil, the costs were $402.80. With increased investment, those costs in the U.S. could come down about 4% to around $380.25 a ton.Also taking part in the report release was R.D. James, assistant secretary for the U.S. Army Civil Works Division. James farms cotton, corn and soybeans in southeast Missouri, but also has served multiple stints on the Mississippi River Commission, which oversees management of the river south of St. Louis to the Gulf of Mexico. James pointed out roughly 60% of corn exports move down the Mississippi River and roughly 40% of all agricultural exports move down the river.“I know the importance of this river and the inland waterways system to farmers,” James said.James noted most of the locks and dams on the Mississippi were built in the 1930s and ’40s. They were also built at a much quicker pace than similar Corps of Engineers projects now take today.Constant delays and repairs up and down the river all translate into widening basis for farmers, James added. The system now can often be compared to a two-lane highway in which traffic has been shifted down to just one lane, he said. James said some locks have smaller lock chambers that require barges to break apart and move through in segments, taking up hours at a time.“Improvements to this lock and dam system are crucial for the American farmer,” James said. He later added, “Basis affects all of us.”The Corps has been focused this spring and summer on flood recovery on both the Mississippi and the Missouri rivers. James said that can affect overall congressional appropriations for the Corps spending. “Congress basically has in their minds the top limits, and they are only going to give the Corps so many dollars, and if the Corps has to put that in flood recovery, they will, instead of construction projects,” James said.Perdue and James called on agricultural groups, the barge industry and local officials to begin aggressively lobbying congressional appropriators to increase funding for lock and dam projects. An official for the Iowa Department of Transportation at the meeting noted that upgrading locks and dams is one of Iowa DOT’s main priorities, because state highways cannot handle the volume of commodity traffic that the Mississippi River can carry.A full copy of the USDA study, “Importance of Inland Waterways to U.S. Agriculture,” can be found here: https://www.ams.usda.gov/…Chris Clayton can be reached at [email protected] him on Twitter @ChrisClaytonDTN(CZ/BAS)© Copyright 2019 DTN/The Progressive Farmer.

Kane leads Spurs’ recovery in 2-2 draw at Juventus

first_imgTyphoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH “We are a young team in this competition. To show that performance is to be proud and to congratulate the players because they were fantastic.”Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri reacted strongly afterward when it was suggested his team, which is going for a seventh successive Serie A title, should have beaten Spurs, which is fifth in the Premier League.“I think people have lost a bit of objectivity,” said a clearly annoyed Allegri. “Juve plays to win but it’s not favorite. You can’t go to the final every year. I think the lads are having a great season, but it’s a long leap from there to think they’re going to win a last-16 match 3-0.“That drives me nuts, because people don’t have an idea about the other teams. I can’t accept that people are getting depressed over a 2-2 draw, it seems like we lost 8-0.”It was also an exciting first half in Basel, with Manchester City scoring three goals before going on to win 4-0 to leave it with one foot in the quarterfinals.ADVERTISEMENT Read Next Globe Business launches leading cloud-enabled and hardware-agnostic conferencing platform in PH Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen, 2nd left, celebrates with teammate Erik Lamela and Harry Kane, right, after scoring his side’s second goal during the Champions League, round of 16, first-leg soccer match between Juventus and Tottenham Hotspurs, at the Allianz Stadium in Turin, Italy, Tuesday, Feb. 13, 2018.

With no big gaps appearing, Higuain smashed the ball straight down the middle and saw it cannon off the crossbar.ADVERTISEMENT A goal would have given Juventus a commanding 3-1 lead at halftime. Instead, Spurs managed to recover from a terrible start and level in the second period to finish at 2-2, ahead of the second leg at Wembley on March 7.Lloris had dived low to his right against Higuain’s successful first spot kick, getting a hand to the well-placed penalty.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutHarry Kane and Christian Eriksen scored in each half after Higuain had netted twice inside the opening nine minutes“I feel so proud,” Tottenham coach Mauricio Pochettino said. “We showed great character against a team that played two finals in three years, with amazing experience on the pitch.

Rajasthan defeat Baroda, win maiden Ranji title

first_imgGiant-killers Rajasthan notched up their maiden Ranji trophy title after defeating hosts Baroda on the basis of their first innings lead in the finals of the premier cricket tournament in Vadodara on Saturday.Resuming their second innings at 201 for four, Rajasthan amassed 341 in 129.1 overs and then reduced Baroda to 28 for four in 14 overs with Deepak Chahar wrecking havoc with three wickets in his seven overs for 15 runs.Earlier, skipper AL Menaria (101), who was dropped twice yesterday, added another 25 runs along with overnight batsman RR Parida (89) en route to his 149-ball century before being caught and bowled by Aditya Waghmode.Parida also couldn’t hang around too long and was trapped in front of the wicket by BA Bhatt.Murtuja Vahora then struck twice to remove Madhur Khatri (18) and Vivek Yadav (13). Deepak Chahar then became Swapnil Singh’s victim as Rajasthan slipped to 282 for nine.But last man and wicketkeeper Rohit Jhalani cracked a 80-ball 43 – studded with seven fours – to add 59 runs with Pankaj Singh (24) to take Rajasthan to 341 in the second innings.Chahar and Pankaj Singh then spitted venom and mowed down the top order at the Moti Bagh Stadium here.The first wicket to fall was KH Devdhar (5) when he failed to negotiate Chahar’s short quick delivery and hooked it in the air as Saxena took the catch at square leg.Two balls later, Pankaj scalped opener JA Kolsawala (13). His good length delivery angled across as going for a drive, Kolsawala edged it to wicketkeeper Rohit Jhalani as Baroda slumped to 18 for two.advertisementIn the sixth over, Chahar claimed his second wicket removing Swapnil Singh. His delivery squared up Swapnil and took his blade’s outside edge to Chopra at second slip.Chahar struck again, dismissing Waghmode to claim his third wicket. He induced a leading edge off the batsman and completed an easy catch as Baroda were reduced to 24 for 4.Later, Rajasthan skipper Hrishikesh Kanitkar attributed the victory to the team effort.”I can’t describe this feeling, it is an honour to play with these guys and it is satisfying that we have done it as a team, it is a team effort, that has been strength this season,” he said.- With PTI inputslast_img read more
