Half-time: Chelsea 2 Arsenal 0

first_imgJuan Mata’s emphatic finish and Frank Lampard’s penalty put Chelsea in command in the London derby.Mata, who scored their winner at Arsenal earlier in the season, put them ahead after only six minutes in the snow at Stamford Bridge.Believing Francis Coquelin had been fouled by Ramires in midfield, the Gunners switched off and Cesar Azpilicueta lifted the ball towards Mata, who controlled it beautifully before holding off Bacary Sagna and firing home.The opener came shortly after Olivier Giroud had missed a great chance for Arsenal, dragging a shot wide after being set up by Theo Walcott.Once in front, Chelsea – with Fernando Torres preferred to Demba Ba up front – took control and doubled their lead after Ramires was brought down by keeper Wojciech Szczesny, who escaped with a yellow card.Lampard tucked away the resulting spot-kick – his 195th goal for the Blues.Ramires might have made it three but blazed over after going past Kieran Gibbs.Torres also shot wastefully over in the final minute of the half.Chelsea (4-2-3-1): Cech; Azpilicueta, Cahill, Ivanovic, Cole; Ramires, Lampard; Oscar, Hazard, Mata; Torres.Subs: Turnbull, Ferreira, Marin, Terry, Ba, Bertrand, Ake.Click here for our Chelsea v Arsenal quiz 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

This is a big year for spray nozzles and replacement decisions

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest This is the time of the year you must complete shopping for nozzles because the spraying season is just around the corner. Although nozzles are some of the least expensive components of a sprayer, they hold a high value in their ability to influence sprayer performance. First, nozzles meter the desired amount of liquid sprayed per acre. Second, nozzles help us spray the liquid uniformly over the width of the sprayer boom. Third, nozzles influence droplet size, affecting both target coverage and spray drift risk. For these key reasons, you need to make sure your sprayer is equipped with the right kind and size of nozzles, and they are still performing within the acceptable range of performance they delivered when they were new.If you were happy with your nozzles last year, and if you are not switching to a new pesticide, all you need to do this spring before the spraying season is to check the flow rate of each nozzle to make sure the nozzles are not worn out. You will need to compare the flow rate of your nozzles with the flow rate of new nozzles of the same type and size at the same pressure. You can find information on the flow rate of new nozzles in nozzle catalogs or company web sites. A deviation of 10% between flow rates of your nozzles and the new nozzles is considered as acceptable. If the difference is greater than 10% of the new nozzle flow rate, it is time to get rid of the old nozzles and replace them with new nozzles.Whether you are using the nozzles you already have on the boom, or getting new nozzles, there are some new issues you will need to consider before the start of the sprayer season. Typically, we take into account many important factors including: sprayer operation parameters (such as application rate, spray pressure, travel speed); application type (broadcast, band, directed, air assisted); target crop (field crops, vegetables, vineyard, shrubs and trees, etc.); and spray drift risk. Are you aware of specific nozzle “requirements” on labels?In the past, the labels on chemicals gave some vague and general statements when referring to application equipment. For example, we used to see (it is still the same for many chemicals) on labels statements such as: “use spray equipment to provide thorough coverage of the canopy.” There was noPhoto by Ken Chamberlein, OSU/OARDChelp with explaining what “thorough coverage” is, and how to achieve it. Then, we saw labels giving us more specific recommendations on nozzles such as: “use nozzles that provide medium spray quality” or “do not use nozzles that produce droplets in coarse or larger spray qualities.” Most recently, the labels of the most talked-about 2,4-D or Dicamba herbicides include very specific requirements on which nozzle or nozzles must be used when spraying these products. For example, one of these products requires using only one type and size of nozzle. Simple interpretation of this requirement is that you would be violating the label if you use any other type or size of nozzle. So, it is your responsibility to comply with the label recommendation.Why are specific nozzles required by manufacturers of 2,4-D and dicamba herbicides? Although manufacturers of these products claim that the new formulations containing 2,4-D or Dicamba are more resistant to drift of these active materials due to high volatility characteristics of similar products used decades ago, they are still extremely concerned about the physical drift of these products in droplets. Therefore, since these products are systemic in nature, they should work even when large size droplets are used during spraying. With this in mind, the manufacturers of these products have decided on recommending specific nozzles that produce droplets that are in the category of “Extra Coarse” or “Ultra Coarse.” Physical drift of such large droplets will likely reduce the risk for drift to minimum levels. Although there are many nozzles that can provide these desired droplet size classes at certain pressures, at this point you are advised to choose exactly the nozzles identified on their labels. Act now if you will be switching to new nozzles.If you are going to use one of the new 2,4-D or Dicamba herbicides this year, it is very likely that you do not have on the boom the specific nozzles required by the manufacturers of these herbicides. That means, you will need to purchase the recommended nozzles and put them on the boom. Since many growers would want to do that, there may be short-term shortages of these nozzles in stores from which you purchase nozzles. So, act now and get the nozzles you need before experiencing potential problems with availability of these nozzles. Keep several types of nozzles on the boomIt is very likely that you will be using your sprayers to spray a variety of pesticides during the growing season. Remember that one specific type of nozzle will not be best for all applications. For this reason, it is best to have several types and sizes of nozzles on the boom so that you can switch to the “best” nozzle choice for a given spraying job. There are various types of sprayer components and setups you can buy to configure your boom so the new set up allows you to easily switch from one nozzle to another instantly. Photo by Ken Chamberlein, OSU/OARDCSome final thoughtsNozzles are typically the least costly items on a sprayer, but they play a key role in the final outcome from a spraying job: achieving maximum efficacy from the pesticide applied while reducing the off-target (drift) movement of pesticides to minimum. Pesticides work well if the rates on labels are achieved during application. This can be achieved only if the right nozzle type and the proper size of the nozzles are on the sprayer, and the sprayer is operated properly.Although the Apps and tables in catalogs may expedite the nozzle size selection process, it is best to understand the process and the math nozzle manufacturers use to generate the values listed in tables, and to generate nozzle recommendations in their Apps. A new Ohio State University Extension Publication, titled “Selecting the best nozzle for the job” gives step-by-step guidelines for selecting the most appropriate spray nozzle for a given application situation. The publication is available online at following web site: http://ohioline.osu.edu/factsheet/fabe-528.last_img read more

Tweetmi: Another Twitter Search Engine with a Twist

first_imgTags:#news#Product Reviews#twitter#web The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Become a FanOne feature that makes Tweetmi unique is that it gives users the option to become ‘fans’ of a certain topic. While this is definitely an interesting concept, users actually have to send out a tweet about the fact that they are now fans of ‘RWW’ or ‘Follow Friday,’ which somehwat limits the usefulness of this feature. Another feature we liked is that the application can show you a list of all the Twitter users who tweeted a popular link. Like most Twitter search engines, Tweemi displays a list of the most popular links about a topic in a sidebar.Given that there are already numerous Twitter search engines and more comprehensive real-time search engines like OneRiot on the market, Tweetmi will probably have a bit of a struggle to attract a dedicated user base. It is however, a perfectly capable Twitter search engine that offers all the typical features you would expect and definitely worth a try. A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Related Posts There are, of course, already numerous Twitter search engines at this point and every new one will have to offer users a very good reason to switch from their current favorite. Tweetmi is jumping into the fray with a Twitter search engine that focuses on presenting users with a more personalized view. While the service also works well as a regular real-time Twitter search engine, users who sign in to Tweetmi will also see the most active users in their Twitter stream and the top stories from the people they already follow.In addition, Tweetmi allows users who are signed in through Twitter’s Oauth login mechanism to quickly reply and retweet any story. In this respect, Tweetmi is quite similar to Twazzup, which also gives users the ability to interact with Twitter directly. Unlike Twazzup, though, Tweetmi doesn’t offer the ability to save searches, however. Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… frederic lardinoislast_img read more

Amazon Launches Its Digital Short Story Collection with Kindle Singles

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market audrey watters Tags:#Amazon#E-Books#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts center_img Last fall, Amazon announced its plans for Kindle Singles, an attempt to make short stories and content of similar length to its e-reader. It was a call, in Amazon’s words, to “serious writers, thinkers, scientists, business leaders, historians, politicians and publishers to join Amazon in making such works available to readers around the world.”And today, the first set of Kindle Singles is available in the Kindle Store.These pieces run between 5000 and 30,000 words (around 30-50 pages) and range in price between $0.99 and $4.99. The first set of Singles includes original reporting, essays, memoirs and fiction. Specific titles are Evan Ratliff’s bank heist story “Lifted,” Brendan Koerner’s story of jazz king Teddy Weatherford “Piano Demon,” and “Leaving Home,” three short pieces by novelist Jodi Picoult. Also included, the launch of the first ever TEDBooks, including three titles based on the popular TEDTalks.Amazon says that the initial response to the announcement of the Singles was “great,” and it plans to launch more Kindle Singles in the future. Amazon touts this move, in part, as an opportunity for writers to publish content in a shorter form. But the move to publish shorter pieces – “compelling ideas expressed at their natural length” – is an interesting one for other reasons as well, particularly in light of questions about the ways in which e-readers are shaping what and how we read. As magazine and newspapers struggle to figure out new way to monetize online content and to handle subscriptions, will this shorter-length content sell on the Kindle?

Aparna Sen receives national film award for best direction for 36 Chowringhee Lane

But few get there and fewer still have the kind of vital statistics that Deepti Divaker, 22, flaunts. For starters, a 35-24-35 figure that, coupled with unusual poise and confidence, earned her the Miss India title in last year’s Femina contest. That isn’t all. Under that elegantly-upholstered exterior is a rare hybrid: painter, writer, classical dancer, architect and fashion model, all struggling to get out at the same time. Just back from Britain and an unsuccessful bid for the Miss World title, Divaker is currently back at her drawing board in Bangalore where she is studying architecture. But not for long. Her first priority is to recover the money she spent for her London trip. “I spent Rs 12,000 on that trip from my own pocket. Femina only paid for my return ticket,” she drawls, “I’m determined to recover the money from dancing, modelling, and acting.” Next stop: Bombay, where she intends to take the film industry by hurricane. And then: the world. “I want to be multidimensional,” she insists, “I want to try my hand at everything. What I want while I’m still young is fame, lots of it, and money too.” That figures.(from left)Aparna Sen; Om Puri in Arohan and Rekha in Umrao Jaan: Winning performancesWith two big guns of the Bombay film industry on the jury that decided the 29th national film awards last fortnight, there were rumours that the commercial entertainer might achieve respectability by winning a laurel. However, grand old actor Ashok Kumar, chairman of the feature film jury – his other Bombay colleague was producer-director B.R. Chopra – had other, and better ideas and the Swaran Kamal for the best feature went to Dakhal, the creation of young Bengali director Gautam Ghose. The other awards are less of a surprise. Aparna Sen received the prize for best direction for the film 36 Chowringhee Lane. Om Puri, the exploited peasant of Shyam Bengal’s Arohan, was best actor – he plays a similar exploited peasant in Satyajit Ray’s Sadgali, which got a special jury award, best actress was Rekha, the poetic courtesan of Umrao Jaan. In fact, Muzaffar All’s period piece, set in ceremonious Lucknow, walked away with four awards – best actress, best playback singer (Asha Bhonsle), best music director (Khayyam) and best art direction.R. Gundu Rao: Donkey dropsHeat does strange things to people. With the mercury rising above 36 degrees in Bangalore, Karnataka Chief Minister R. Gundu Rao took cricket bat in hand and led a motley team of legislators, ministers and close friends – including bosom buddy F.M. Khan – out on to the field to confront the High Court chief justice’s eleven. Decked out in sharply creased flannels. his belly squeezed behind a striking sports/shirt, Rao turned his arm over for a few donkey drops before wilting away and letting his team-mates take over. At the other end, Chief Justice D. Chandrashekhar made two runs before he, too, strolled back to the cool of the pavilion. State Finance Minister Veerappa Moily and Khan did their duty valiantly after their master left, but even so the chief justice’s men managed to score 144 runs. In reply, after much huffing and puffing, Rao’s team could score only 129 – which is probably his government’s best performance.advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgTagsTransfersAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say AC Milan director Maldini jumps to defence of coach Giampaoloby Carlos Volcanoa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveAC Milan director Paolo Maldini has lept to the defence of coach Marco Giampaolo after defeat to Fiorentina.The Rossonero were thumped 3-1 at home on Sunday.“We chose the Coach, we will defend him, it is right to give him some time. We knew there were some problems that we’d run into, although obviously we didn’t expect to lose four of the first six games, but also the quality of the football is unsatisfactory,” Maldini told Sky Sport Italia.“Right now, it might look like a tunnel with no light, but as our Coach said, the way out is with hard work. We knew that relying on a young squad, during the period when we are waiting for the Coach to really become a leadership figure, there could be a risk of the pressure getting to them.“Of course, it is the fault of the players, the club, the Coach, everyone. Last season, we finished one point off the Champions League places and they always supported us.“I think the fans were right this evening to protest. The responsibility is to be shared around, otherwise it becomes too much of a burden to bear.“We are only six rounds in, all is not lost. We know that in football, situations can turn rapidly. The worrying thing is that we saw such a downturn in performance from the Torino game on Thursday.“It’s strange, because we played very well during pre-season and showed good organisation. There started to be some traffic in the central area of the field, causing some tactical problems and difficulty in moving the ball around.” last_img read more

Lego wins first China copyright case against imitators

first_imgHONG KONG – Danish toy maker Lego says it has won a major legal victory in China, where a court ruled in its favour in a copyright case against companies making knockoffs of its famous colored bricks.The company said Thursday that it was the first time it has won an unfair competition case against imitators in China.It said the Shantou Intermediate People’s Court ruled that two Chinese companies selling Bela brand blocks similar to the Lego Friends line infringed a copyright and ordered them to stop.The court issued its ruling in September but the decision didn’t take effect until November.Earlier this year, a Beijing court ruled that Lego’s name and logo are well-known trademarks in China, giving the company stronger legal footing for pursuing copyright cases.last_img read more

Province declares state of emergency as hundreds of wildfires continue to rage

first_imgThe state of emergency applies to the entire province and ensures federal, provincial and local resources can be delivered in a co-ordinated response to protect the public, which remains the provincial government’s top priority.During the 2017 wildfire season, the Province was in a provincial state of emergency for 10 weeks, from July 7th to September 15th. The previous provincial state of emergency before the 2017 wildfire season was issued in August 2003.“Public safety is always our first priority and, as wildfire activity is expected to increase, this is a progressive step in our wildfire response to make sure British Columbia has access to any and all resources necessary,” Farnworth said. “Taking this step will further ensure we can protect the public, property and infrastructure, and assist with firefighting efforts.”As of yesterday, there were 566 wildfires burning in B.C., with 29 evacuation orders affecting approximately 3,050 people, in addition to 48 evacuation alerts impacting approximately 18,720 people.The Province says that the extended weather forecast calls for continued hot and dry conditions, with a risk of thunderstorms in some parts of the province.Currently, more than 3,372 firefighters and contractors are actively engaged in fighting fires in all fire regions of the province. This includes 1,427 B.C. contract personnel, as well as 436 out-of-province personnel from Alberta, New Brunswick, Northwest Territories, Quebec, Saskatchewan, Parks Canada, Australia, Mexico and New Zealand. VICTORIA, B.C. – The B.C. government has declared a provincial state of emergency to support the provincewide response to the ongoing wildfire situation.Public Safety Minister and Solicitor General Mike Farnworth made the declaration at 8:30 Wednesday morning based on the recommendation from B.C.’s wildfire and emergency management officials.The state of emergency is initially in effect for 14 days, once issued, and may be extended or rescinded as necessary. The federal government has responded to and accepted British Columbia’s request for assistance. In the coming days, federal personnel and resources will be arriving in B.C. to assist with wildfire efforts.“Given the unpredictable behaviour of wildfires and the number of significant wildfires in all areas of the province, we’re bringing in the additional resources we need to keep people and communities as safe as possible,” said Doug Donaldson, Minister of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development. “We’re asking British Columbians to do their part and follow burning bans and restrictions to prevent human-caused fires.”The state of emergency gives agencies, such as the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development, Emergency Management BC, the fire commissioner and the RCMP, the authority to take every action necessary to fight the wildfires and protect people and communities.last_img read more
