November 24, 2019 /Sports News – Local No. 20 Boise State runs over Utah State for 56-21 win Written by Tags: Boise State Broncos/Mountain West/Utah State Aggies Football Associated Press FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailLOGAN, Utah (AP) — George Holani ran for a career-high 178 yards and two touchdowns, powering No. 20 Boise State to a 56-21 victory over Utah State on Saturday night.Jaylon Henderson threw for 187 yards and three scores in his second start as Boise State (10-1, 7-0 Mountain West) clinched a share of the Mountain Division title and a berth in the Mountain West Conference championship game for the third straight season.Jordan Love threw for 229 yards and a touchdown to lead the Aggies (6-5, 5-2), who lost to the Broncos for a fourth consecutive season.Holani averaged 11.1 yards per carry to pace a Boise State rushing attack that churned out a season-best 297 yards on the ground. The Broncos averaged 6.5 per carry.Holani burned Utah State for big gains starting in the first quarter. The freshman opened each of Boise State’s first three drives with a run exceeding 10 yards. Holani’s first carry turned into a 35-yard gain. He also scored on a 5-yard Statue of Liberty play on his final attempt of the quarter.It added up to 115 yards on eight carries for Holani in the first quarter alone. That set the tone for a game filled with big plays by the Broncos.Boise State needed only four plays to score on its opening drive. John Hightower shedded tacklers on a 30-yard catch-and-run to put the Broncos ahead 7-0. Utah State evened the score on a 7-yard catch by Caleb Repp.Then the dam burst, and Boise State consumed the Aggies on both sides of the ball.Jalen Walker returned an interception 15 yards with 5:14 left in the first quarter to put the Broncos ahead for good. Holani followed with his Statue of Liberty touchdown late in the period — which he set up with a 36-yard run a play earlier.Boise State kept it rolling into the second quarter. Holani and Robert Mahone each scored on a 1-yard run and Khalil Shakir hauled in a 14-yard pass from Henderson with 19 seconds left in the half to make it 42-7.Avery Williams added an exclamation point by returning a punt 74 yards early in the third quarter to extend Boise State’s lead to 49-7.POLL IMPLICATIONSBoise State could climb a spot or two in both the AP and CFP rankings after an emphatic road victory.THE TAKEAWAYBoise State: It doesn’t seem to matter who the Broncos plug in at quarterback because their offense keeps running over opponents at full steam. Boise State averaged 7.5 yards per play in the first half and rolled up 383 total yards by halftime.Utah State: An inability to stop Boise State’s ground game doomed the Aggies to their most lopsided loss since the 2017 season opener at Wisconsin. Utah State also struggled to answer on offense, punting six times and turning the ball over once through the first three quarters while the Broncos ran off 49 straight points.UP NEXTBoise State closes the regular season at Colorado State next Saturday.Utah State finishes the regular season at New Mexico on Saturday.

View post tag: Naval Back to overview,Home naval-today Change of Command at USS Fitzgerald View post tag: change Authorities The officers and crew assigned to the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald (DDG 62) ended an era and began a new chapter with a change of command ceremony on the ship’s flight deck, May 29. View post tag: News by topic Cmdr. Christopher England assumed command of Fitzgerald from Cmdr. Jonathan Schmitz, marking the end of 17 months of command for Schmitz.“To the Fitzgerald crew, I promised you three things when I took command,” said Schmitz. “Number one, we will face challenges. We did. Number two, we will work together in the face of adversity. We most certainly did. Number three, we will continue to succeed against all odds. We most definitely did that. There is no challenge too hard, there is no quit. There was only dedication to fitness, family, and Fitzgerald, in that order. We smiled through the pain and we achieved the unachievable.”Under Schmitz’s command, Fitzgerald contributed to regional stability and theater security operations in the 7th Fleet area of responsibility. The ship also participated in carrier strike group operations and various exercises such as Valiant Shield, Keen Sword, Foal Eagle, and Multi-Sail.Before turning over his duties, Schmitz expressed his gratitude for the dedicated hard work from the crew during his command.“DDGs are made of steel; inanimate objects, but ships are made of blood, sweat and tears,” said Schmitz. “We are constantly giving our fair share, but it was worth it.”England, who previously served as the ship’s executive officer, opened his speech thanking the Fitzgerald family and her supporters.“Cmdr. Schmitz has set the bar high by leading the crew to success in every mission we have been tasked,” said Electronics Technician 2nd Class Alex Rocha, assigned to Fitzgerald. “Cmdr. England’s challenge will be to take the Fitzgerald to even greater victories and further our tradition of excellence.”Fitzgerald is one of seven Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyers assigned to Destroyer Squadron 15 forward deployed to Yokosuka, Japan supporting security and stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.[mappress]Press Release, June 02, 2014; Image: June 2, 2014 View post tag: Command View post tag: americas Share this article Change of Command at USS Fitzgerald View post tag: USS Fitzgerald View post tag: Navy

Overall goals are to avoid duplication of effort and the use of available technologies, data and information, to enhance cooperation in a simple, efficient and low-cost solution for military and civil cooperation, and to support safety and security.After extensive work by fifteen Member States the project came to a decisive point as it entered the end of the demonstration phase for a basic MARSUR-Network. The live demonstration during the Distinguished Visitors Day (DV-Day) on 30 June 2011 was using the connections between independent systems from Italy, Finland, France, Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Spain and Sweden.On October 27, 2011 Belgium, Cyprus, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britan and Northern Ireland, Greece, Italy, Ireland, Lithuania, The Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, signed the Technical Agreement (TA) for the MARSUR Live Phase, followed in 2012 by Bulgaria, Latvia and Norway.The MARSUR Live Phase aims to further develop a capability that fulfills the need of maritime surveillance information sharing and networking whilst maximizing interoperability and standardization.The MARSUR Operational Working Group which took place on June 14 and 15 in Hamburg facilitated first training for the operators in charge of acquiring and processing maritime situational awareness data.A total of 20 participants from 9 nations were hosted by the Helmut-Schmidt University this year at the invitation of the German Department of Defense.Apart from theoretical training and practical connectivity exercises, exchange of experience was at the forefront of the event.

Just months after consumers lost Dursban as a home pest controlproduct, a major maker of diazinon has announced plans to phaseit out of the market.Syngenta Crop Protection announced Dec. 5 its plans to phaseout the popular pesticide over the next four years. The companyhas planned and coordinated the phase-out with the EnvironmentalProtection Agency.Agricultural Uses Only After 2004Other makers will continue to sell diazinon for farm uses after2004.”EPA is assessing many chemicals now on the market aspart of the implementation of the Food Quality Protection Actof 1996,” said Paul Guillebeau, a pesticide coordinator withthe University of Georgia College of Agricultural and EnvironmentalSciences.”The FQPA is fundamentally changing the way U.S. pesticidesare regulated,” Guillebeau said. “Several products havebeen removed from the market. And I’m sure several more will beremoved in the near future.”EPA removed methyl parathion and azinphos methyl from the marketin the summer of 1999 and chlorpyrifos in August 2000. Chlorpyrifosis commonly known as Dursban or Lorsban.Diazinon was first marketed in 1954. It has been used sincethen for both farm and home uses.Was Great at Fighting Surface-FeedingTurf Insects”Diazinon is primarily used to control turf pests likearmyworms, chinch bugs, cutworms, spittlebugs, mealybugs and aphids,and pests like fleas and ticks that are found in turf,” saidKris Braman, a UGA CAES entomologist. “Diazinon and Dursbanwere both great products for controlling surface-feeding insects.”Many pest-control choices are on the market. But Braman saidlosing both Dursban and diazinon will be an adjustment for homeowners.”These products are known as the tried-and-true pesticides,”Braman said. “And if other chemicals continue to be pulled,the choices out there will continue to be reduced.”Read Labels and Pick an AlternativeProducts for fighting turf and lawn pests are still on themarket. “Consumers are just going to have to start readinglabels and selecting alternatives,” Braman said.”Other materials available now that fit the bill are Orthene,Dylox, Talstar, Dipel, Sevin, Scott’s Grub Ex and the newer productslike Bayer’s Advanced Lawn and Garden,” she said. “TheBayer products come in blue bottles or bags, so they are easyto spot.”As long as diazinon is on the counter, buy it, Braman said.But don’t stock up.”You shouldn’t buy more of any pesticide product thanyou need,” she said, “because they lose their effectiveness.And then disposing of those pesticides would become a problem.”On the downside, shoppers may pay more for these new productsthan they were paying for Dursban and diazinon. “I hate tosee us lose these products, because they were effective and inexpensive,”Braman said.

Focused on the successes and shortcomings of our organizations, focused on our employees and, hopefully, focused on our own families and health.But are we focusing on too many things? An article from Business News Daily says “smart leadership is about making the most of your work hours by learning to delegate, prioritize and simplify.”Given this definition of smart leadership, are we focusing on the right things in the right order? In other words, do we prioritize our demands correctly?A Lifehack article written by Joel Falconer describes two approaches to prioritization. First, tackling the biggest tasks first and getting them out of the way. And approach No. 2, tackling the tasks you can easily get done quickly. He explains:“The thing with prioritization is that knowing when to do what relies very much on you and the way you work. Some people need to get some small work done to find a sense of accomplishment and clarity that allows them to focus on and tackle bigger items. Others need to deal with the big tasks or they’ll get caught up in the busywork of the day and never move on …”

US Treasury yields ticked lower as a rising caseload of COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by the novel coronavirus, raised concerns about economic reopening plans.The greater Miami area in Florida became the latest US coronavirus hot spot to roll back its reopening. Cases surged nationwide by the tens of thousands and the US death toll topped 130,000.Stocks have rallied on the belief therapies and vaccines will be developed to deal with the coronavirus and that the United States has enough experience with the pandemic to avoid economy-wide lockdowns, said David Joy, chief market strategist at Ameriprise.But the three states where infections are currently the most intense – California, Texas and Florida – are the three most populous and account for almost one-third of US gross domestic product, Joy said. Investor caution over renewed coronavirus-related lockdowns buoyed the dollar and snapped a five-day rally in most world equity markets on Tuesday, but was not enough to halt a hot streak in Chinese stocks.The dollar edged higher as risk currencies such as the Australian dollar took a breather from recent gains and gold dipped as investors booked profits after bullion rallied to a near eight-year peak, trading around US$1,780 an ounce.Bourses in London, Paris and Frankfurt fell about 1 percent for most of the session before paring some losses, while losses were greater on Wall Street even as the Nasdaq posted a fresh intraday high before closing down. “Other countries have shown it is possible to knock this virus down,” Joy said. “But it takes social discipline and that seems to be in short supply here.”MSCI’s all-country world index, which tracks shares in 49 nations, fell 5.24 points, or 0.97 percent, while Europe’s broad FTSEurofirst 300 index dropped 0.62 percent.On Wall Street, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 396.85 points, or 1.51 percent, to 25,890.18 and the S&P 500 lost 34.4 points, or 1.08 percent, to 3,145.32. The Nasdaq Composite dropped 89.76 points, or 0.86 percent, to 10,343.89.Lockdown measures were also reimposed in Melbourne, Australia, confining its nearly 5 million residents to all but essential travel for another six weeks.Corporate earnings are expected to fall by about 20 percent percent this year following the deepest recession in more than a century. Pictet Asset Management expects a 30 percent to 40 percent slump.“But that does not mean equity and corporate bond markets are due a sharp fall,” said Luca Paolini, chief strategist at Pictet Asset Management.Paolini predicted the US Federal Reserve will inject a further $1.3 trillion of stimulus this year and the European Central Bank will add another 1.1 trillion euros ($1.24 trillion).The euro was last down 0.34 percent at $1.1269.The euro zone economy will drop into a deeper recession this year than previously expected and take longer to rebound, the European Commission forecast. The commission said the 19-nation single currency area would contract a record 8.7 percent before rising by 6.1 percent in 2021, worse than its previous forecast.The dollar index, which tracks the greenback versus a basket of six currencies, rose 0.22 percent to 96.942. The yen was up 0.20 percent at $107.5700.Analysts said signals from the Chinese government through a state-sponsored journal on “fostering a healthy bull market,” published on Monday, helped the buying binge in Chinese shares.Chinese blue-chips rose for a sixth straight day to close at highs last seen in June 2015 as retail investors rushed to join an officially sanctioned bull market.The Shanghai index pared earlier gains of more than 2 percent as investors consolidated their positions after some analysts drew parallels with a stock market boom-and-bust five years ago.Copper prices soared to their highest in more than five months due to strong demand prospects in top consumer China and worries about supplies from Chile, the world’s largest producer of the red metal.Oil prices edged higher after the US government forecast higher fuel demand and lower production, overshadowing concerns that the surge in new coronavirus cases would hamper demand.The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) forecast global oil demand would recover 101.1 million barrels per day (bpd) by the fourth quarter of next year.Brent crude futures slid 2 cents to settle lower at $43.08 a barrel, while US crude futures fell 1 cent to settle at $40.62 a barrel.Spot gold rebounded to within striking distance of $1,800 an ounce on the potential that a sharp jump in COVID-19 cases would lead to more accommodative monetary policy measures and greater demand for the safe-haven metal.US gold futures settled up 0.9 percent at 1,809.90 an ounce after earlier striking the highest since September 2011 at $1,810.80.Topics :
