For Shearer Tottenham can still win the league

first_imgThe former Premier League footballer believes the Spurs are still in the race to lift the English trophy at the end of the season.Tottenham Hotspur is located in the third position of the English Premier League standings with 12 games remaining in the title race.The Spurs have 60 points, five less than leaders Manchester City and second-place Liverpool.Tottenham has won 20 of their 26 matches, drawing zero times and losing six.And for former English Premier League footballer Alan Shearer, they are still in the competition.“It is a little disrespectful that not many people are talking about Tottenham as potential Premier League winners because they are in the title race – and they have shown they are not going away,” he told the BBC.“It was typical really that, on a day where Manchester City were sensational and made the headlines with the way they demolished Chelsea to go back above Liverpool at the top of the table, Spurs ground out another unspectacular victory.”“Mauricio Pochettino’s side have done something similar in each of their past four league games, but it is actually very impressive that they keep getting results when none of those performances have been particularly great,” he added.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“I thought Leicester were the better team at Wembley on Sunday and the Foxes created chance after chance by getting behind Tottenham’s full-backs, Kieran Trippier and Danny Rose, who stayed so high up the pitch.”“If that happens again in Wednesday’s Champions League tie against Borussia Dortmund, Spurs are going to be in trouble because I think they will get punished,” he explained.“But, on this occasion, they not only survived, they found a way to win.”“It was obviously not the same sort of statement of intent that City made a couple of hours later, but to score three goals and take the three points without playing well at all is still a very good sign of the sort of shape that Spurs are in,” Shearer said.“Yes, in an ideal world Tottenham would be doing what City did on Sunday, and tearing teams apart, but they are at a stage of their season when their squad is stretched and getting results is the only thing that matters.”3⃣ goals in 3⃣ matches for Sonny! 🔥#COYS— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) February 11, 2019last_img read more

ASA Weighs in on House White Paper on Agricultural Impacts of RFS

first_imgThe House Energy and Commerce Committee issued the latest in a series of white papers examining the impacts of the Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS). The latest white paper, issued April 19, outlines and seeks comment on the impact of the RFS on the agricultural sector.Following the release of the white paper on agricultural sector impacts, ASA provided extensive comments highlighting the importance of the RFS to the soybean and biodiesel industries and reinforcing the fact that the RFS does not drive higher commodity or food prices.”Soybean farmers have played a major role in the development of the U.S. biodiesel industry and biodiesel has provided a significant market opportunity for U.S. soybean producers,” wrote ASA in its comments. “However, first and foremost, policymakers must understand that markets and prices for soybeans are driven by demand for soy meal as a protein feed source for livestock. The portion of the soybean used in biodiesel production is the oil, not the meal.””Additionally, in considering the use of soybean oil for biodiesel production, it must be understood that demand for U.S. soybean oil for food use began to decline significantly following the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) action in 2003 to require food manufacturers to include trans fats on nutrition labels beginning in 2006,” added ASA. “The increase in the use of soybean oil for the biodiesel market has essentially taken up the reduced demand for soybean oil in the food sector associated with trans fat labeling as the food industry shifted away from the use of partially hydrogentated soybean oil to various oil blends and the increased use of palm oil.For a full transcript of ASA’s comments, please click here, and for a copy of the committee’s whitepaper, please click here. ASA encourages all members to utilize the comments and urge their Members of Congress to support the RFS and support biodiesel.last_img read more


House Discusses Pollinators as New Bee Health Report is Released

first_imgThe House Agriculture Committee held a hearing on the federal response to pollinator health issues on Wednesday. Many topics of interest to the American Soybean Association (ASA) were covered, including the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) rebuttal of an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) study that concluded that neonicotinoid seed treatment products show little benefit for soybean yields.EPA officials confirmed that the pollinator health task force report, ordered in a presidential executive order from June 2014, would be released “in the very near future.” Stakeholders have expected the report for several months. Another development for pollinator issues was the release this week of a new report from the Bee Informed Partnership, USDA and the Apiary Inspectors of America. The report for the first time shows that beekeepers are losing more hives in the summer than in the winter. While winter losses from 2014-15 were below the average, the summer loss numbers far exceeded the average rate. The bee survey can be found on here:last_img read more

Senate budget would cut deep into education

first_imgOLYMPIA (AP) — The Washington state Senate rolled out a proposed two-year state budget Tuesday that includes cutting an additional $250 million from K-12 education.In all, the Senate budget proposal slashes $4.8 billion in state spending as it tries to fill in a $5.1 billion deficit in the next two-year period. It also includes more than $450 million in fund transfers, among other things, and leaves an ending balance of about $740 million. The Senate plan assumes $250 million in savings from wage reductions for teachers. But teacher salaries include a combination of local, federal and state money. Under the proposal, school districts would have to decide how to deal with the reduction in money.The Senate also has a plan to penalize school districts with high truancy rates — something budget writers assume will save another $95 million.Combined for about $345 million, those two cuts to education are the key difference between the Senate budget and the House proposal, which didn’t include the teacher pay cut.Last week, the House rolled out its budget proposal, which cuts $4.4 billion in spending. It also included a plan to privatize the state’s liquor distribution, earning the state a projected $300 million. But that idea has gotten a lukewarm response from Gov. Chris Gregoire and it wasn’t included in the Senate proposal.“It’s not a budget of choice, it’s a budget of necessity. Within that necessity, we have acted responsibly,” said Sen. Ed Murray, D-Seattle, chairman of the Senate Ways and Means committee.last_img read more


La Center basketball team unifies community

first_imgLA CENTER — Five wins. Five losses. A .500 winning percentage.On paper, La Center Middle School’s eighth grade boys basketball team defined average this season. In reality, they’re anything but.The boys’ courage in the aftermath of teammate and friend Cody Sherrell’s death from sudden cardiac arrest provided strength for their classmates and teachers, solace for the community and a source of comfort for Cody’s family, school officials said. Wins and losses don’t tell the whole story.“There was amazing pressure on these kids to be that inspiration,” Principal David Cooke said, while seated inside a conference room in the middle school’s main office. “They were not only playing for Cody but playing for a grieving school and a grieving community. (The basketball team) was onething people could rally behind.”The team rallied behind Cody’s memory, three of its players said Wednesday.“Cody was our first priority,” Dalton Morgan, 14, recalled.Cody died Jan. 9, six days after collapsing at the end of the team’s first practice of the season. He was 14.Ten days after Cody’s death, hundreds of students, school faculty, parents and community residents packed La Center Middle’s gym for the team’s season opener against Hockinson Middle School. Many in the crowd wore black hooded sweatshirts or T-shirts bearing Cody’s name and number (24). The proceeds went to Cody’s family to offset hospital bills.During a somber pre-game ceremony, Brandon Sherrell told the crowd his son had achieved his dream the day he collapsed. On a wall behind him, a sign declared the hardwood he stood on as “Cody’s Court.” The Sherrell family did not respond to a request for comment for this story.La Center defeated Hockinson, 70-54, on opening night, equaling its 2011 win total.The team’s goal remained the same in each of its games — win for Cody. Pre-game cheers before home games reminded them to “protect Cody’s house.”last_img read more
