‘We’re fine, there’s a lot of baseball left’: Athletics show mettle in road trip with postseason feelDecember 20, 2019 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: egielqmer.
HOUSTON — Two of the best pitchers in baseball sandwiched the A’s three-game stop in Houston. And, despite a savory middle — the A’s late-inning comeback win in extra innings Tuesday — the series loss didn’t quite sit right.The first bite resulted in a throw-away loss at the hands of Gerrit Cole. Wednesday’s crumbs, an unceremonious 4-2 loss on top of a Justin Verlander gem.“Disappointing,” Wednesday’s starter Chris Bassitt said of the loss. “Because we didn’t come back to win the series.

5 November 2012The South African Revenue Service’s (Sars’) chief legal and policy officer, Kosie Louw, has been elected chairperson of the Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes, becoming the first African chair of the forum.Louw will hold the post for a two-year period starting in 2013.“On behalf of the South African government, I would like to congratulate Sars and Kosie Louw on his election as chairperson,” Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan said in a statement on Friday.“I am certain that the two years of South Africa’s chairmanship will be beneficial not only to the forum but also to the wider global tax administration community.”Gordhan said the position was important because the forum’s current mandate expires in 2015, and it is during South Africa’s tenure that a decision must be made on the best way forward.“SA’s tenure also coincides with very challenging times for tax administrations globally, especially when it comes to the exchange of information for tax purposes.”Promoting tax cooperation“Optimum transparency and exchange of information are critical for improving tax compliance and increasing the prospects of revenue collection at a time when most countries face fiscal constraints,” Gordhan said.“International cooperation among tax administrations is vital in an era of rapid movement of money and people across borders.”The Global Forum plays a key role in promoting tax cooperation and the exchange of information among revenue authorities.It feeds into the work of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development and the Group of 20 on improving transparency on tax matters.The forum is the largest consensus-based organisation working to facilitate the exchange of tax information between jurisdictions, an important step towards an end to secrecy.“South Africa fully supports the work of the forum, whose peer review reports reflect a very good practice in exchange of information,” Gordhan said.Currently, the forum has a membership of 116 and is in a position to have a significant impact on how jurisdictions cooperate, not only in terms of transparency of information, but putting in more effort to ensure that taxes are collected and used in a way that improves the lives of the citizens of those jurisdictions.Forum members must ensure the integrity and sustainability of tax systems around the globe.“Governments have an obligation to create an environment conducive to economic growth and job creation – and to ensure that the benefits that come from that growth are shared broadly,” he said.“If this does not happen, we will be responsible for creating more inequality.”Source: SANews.gov.za
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Many Ohio livestock were unable to apply their normal amounts of manure last fall due to wet weather and a delayed harvest season. As a result, many producers need to haul manure this spring before the planting season.The ammonium nitrogen and a portion of the organic nitrogen contained in spring applied manure are generally available for the growing crop. According to OSU Extension bulletin 604, 50 to 75 percent of the ammonia portion of the nitrogen could be captured if the manure is injected during application or incorporated within one day if surface applied. Approximately one-third of the organic portion of the manure nitrogen will be available regardless of whether the manure is incorporated or not.Table 16, OSU Extension Bulletin 604Ammonium N AvailableOrganic N Available Time of Application Days Until Incorporated NH4ON Date Days50%33%March – Aprilless than 325%33%March – Aprilgreater than 375%33%April – Juneless than 125% 33%April – June greater than 1Ohio State University Extension has conducted manure research on growing crops for several years in an effort to make better use of the available nutrients.The manure research trial in Table 1 was conducted over four years at the Northwest Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center’s Hoytville location. The swine manure application rate was 5,000 gallons per acre to get 200 units of available nitrogen. The dairy manure application rate was 13,577 gallons per acre to get 130 units of nitrogen. The dairy treatments received additional nitrogen as incorporated 28% UAN just prior to the manure application to reach the 200 unit goal. The 28% UAN treatments also received 200 units of nitrogen.Pre-emergent applications of 28% UAN, swine manure or dairy manure were made within five days of corn planting. Post-emergent applications of 28% UAN, swine manure and dairy manure were made at the V3 stage of corn growth. All manure applications were made with a 5,200 gallon tanker and Dietrich tool bar with the incorporated manure placed at a five inch depth. Surface manure was applied by using the Dietrich toolbar held just above ground level.Table 1. 2011 – 2014 Manure on Corn Research Plots OARDC Northwest Branch20112012201320144 year average bu/ac bu/ac bu/ac bu/ac bu/acPre-emergent treatmentsIncorporated 28%UAN138.1111.5184.6145.1144.8Incorporated swine manure 191.1 128.6 191.8 146.5 164.7Surface applied swine manure 180.9 109.5 175.7 137.2 150.8Incorporated dairy manure + 28%UAN 190.1 132.0 185.4 166.1 168.4Surface applied dairy manure + 28%UAN 184.5 97.0 166.0 141.9 147.4Post-emergent treatmentsIncorporated 28%UAN 132.7 116.0 181.9 140.9 142.9Incorporated swine manure 180.8 138.4 196.7 139.9 164.0Surface applied swine manure 178.0 116.4 188.0 115.6 149.5Incorporated dairy manure + 28%UAN 180.0 138.8 192.0 156.9 166.9Surface applied dairy manure + 28%UAN 170.5 101.6 181.5 125.3 144.7Zero nitrogen check 74.4 62.6 82.0 67.0 71.5Corn sidedress plots involving the use of a drag hose to apply the manure were conducted in 2014 and will be again in 2015.

Kashmir witnessed a shutdown on Monday over the National Investigation Agency’s (NIA) move to summon Kashmir Traders and Manufacturers Federation (KTMF) president Yasin Khan and Kashmir University scholar Aala Fazil to New Delhi for questioning in an “illegal funding case”.Several supporters of Mr. Khan held a silent sit-in in Lal Chowk against his summoning. The NIA had asked Mr. Khan to asked present himself before the NIA on Monday.“We would continue our peaceful protest until Yasin sahab leaves the NIA headquarter,” said a protesting trader.The shutdown call by traders, supported by separatists, impacted the daily life in the Valley. There was a thin traffic on the roads as educational institutions, petrol pumps and banks remained closed. The authorities placed areas under five police stations in the old city under restrictions. Train service in south Kashmir was also stopped. Hurriyat faction chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said, “The NIA is resorting to coercive and intimidating tactics against people of Kashmir”.NIA raids continueMeanwhile, the NIA on Monday continued with its raids in Kashmir Valley.Police sources said two youth, one from Ganderbal and another from Baramulla, were questioned regarding their involvement in stone pelting.The NIA has registered a case in May regarding illegal funding from across the border to fuel violence in J&K. Seven separatist leaders are already in the NIA custody.Court grants bail to Jamaat-e-Islami spokesmanThe high court on Monday granted bail to Jamaat-e-Islami (JeI) spokesman Zahid Ali Lone.“Freedom of speech and expression is the soul of our democratic and secular fabric. The might of our great India is not so weak that by using a few nonproductive and ego satisfying slogans the people will be scared even by a grain of fear that their levies will be put at a peril,” said Justice M. K. Hanjura, while granting bail.Lone’s lawyer Salih Pirzada said his client was arrested on August 4 “for raising slogans.” The police had alleged Mr. Lone’s objecting was “to induce the youth of the adjoining areas to indulge in rioting and join the militant ranks to accomplish the ultimate aim of seceding Jammu and Kashmir from the Union of India”.
For the first time in its 84-year-old history, the BCCI has added an in-house television production unit and it will make debut with the home Test series against New Zealand next month.BCCI president N Srinivasan.The BCCI Broadcasting Services will not only do the production for international home series, but also the Indian Premier League (IPL) and Champions League T20.”Yes, a decision has been taken and the BCCI will do the production now, starting with the New Zealand series. We decided at a working committee meeting to go ahead with it,” BCCI president N Srinivasan told Mail Today. The two-Test series against New Zealand begins on August 23 in Uppal, Hyderabad. The Kiwis will also play two Twenty20 Internationals in a packed season in which England and Australia – and possibly Pakistan – too will visit India.Till now, the company that held the BCCI media rights also used to do the production work, too, in return for a fee. Nimbus Communications held the previous contract.But after terminating its contract on December 12 last year, for regularly defaulting on payments, the BCCI did not hire anyone to do the production for international matches as well as domestic tournaments.Srinivasan declined to give reasons for breaking the traditional practice. “Instead of tendering it, we decided to do production ourselves. What were the reasons behind this decision, I do not want to disclose,” he said.However, a top BCCI official said that the world’s richest cricket board decided against floating tender as it was confronting “a lot of problems”, and they resulted from extremely limited options in the market.advertisement”It is a fact that the Indian market for this kind of production work is very limited. There are only a handful of companies that have the expertise. And the BCCI has been finding it difficult to deal with them,” the official told Mail Today.When the BCCI terminated Nimbus’ contract, more than two years were left in the 2010-2014 deal. The BCCI then floated tenders, inviting companies to bid for a total of six years – two years left in the Nimbus contract plus a separate four-year (2014-18) block.The Rupert Murdoch-owned STAR India Ltd., which was one of the only two bidders, quoted Rs 3,851.52 crore ($ 757.6 million) to bag the six-year deal that includes the television, mobile and internet rights. It, however, did not hire STAR India Ltd. for production.The BCCI assured STAR India Ltd. of 96 international matches in addition to select domestic tournament matches. Multi Screen Media (Singapore) bid Rs 3,700.032, only to lose by a huge difference of Rs 151.488 crore.In 2005, Lalit Modi, then a Board vice-president, and IS Bindra, president of the Punjab Cricket Association, had announced that the BCCI would launch its own cricket channel. But it never materialised.The BCCI official said that Srinivasan himself raised the issue of inhouse production at a recent working committee meeting.”He told the gathering that only a handful of production houses were available and emphasised that the BCCI was finding it difficult to deal with its production partners,” he disclosed. “Srinivasan invited members’ opinion on the proposal that was on the table. The proposal was prepared by BCCI’s Broadcasting Services director James Rego.” The official revealed that Srinivasan then requested IPL chief operating officer Sundar Raman, who was a special invitee at the working committee meeting, to explain the proposal in detail.”He said that if the BCCI has an in-house production unit, the quality of telecast could be maintained,” he said. “BCCI will also produce IPL and Champions League T20. The house approved the proposal unanimously.” Sources say that the BCCI has no plans to purchase expensive equipment straightaway, but will instead hire cameras and other gadgets for production, to be overseen by Rego, who joined the BCCI in 2009 from Nimbus. A few more old Nimbus hands have also joined the BCCI Broadcast Services.”After the working committee approved the proposal, the top guns of the BCCI Broadcast Services have been calling a variety of professionals to hire them for the New Zealand series and the domestic season that begins on September 21 with the Irani Cup.” In all probability, the same freelance professionals who did duty for Nimbus will turn out for the BCCI too.
