Statehouse— State Sens. Jean Leising and Chip Perfect presented House Concurrent Resolution 32, which honors The National FFA Organization for its work to advance the quality of agricultural education, at the Statehouse Monday. FFA is a dynamic youth organization that changes lives and prepares members for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. The National FFA Organization was established in 1928 and Indiana FFA was started in 1929. Currently, there are 211 chapters in Indiana with 12,500 members.“Farmers are often underappreciated for their talents, working in hazardous and stressful conditions to provide for us,” Leising said. “HCR 32 pays respect to an organization that goes above and beyond to educate and encourage our future agricultural workforce. Farmers in Indiana contribute more than $31.2 billion to our economy, making our state one of the largest agricultural exporters in the nation. Our state is better because of the young men and women in the National FFA Organization, and I commend them for their accomplishments.”“I applaud Hoosier youth who join their local FFA chapter,” Perfect said. “As a former member of the FFA many of the ideals I learned through the program I actively practice today. I was awarded several opportunities I would not have otherwise had, if I had not joined FFA and I encourage those passionate about agriculture to consider joining this program.”

They won 3-1 by outclassing Valencia in the competition’s semi-final match. Isco and Luka Modric scored either side of half-time to put Zinedine Zidane’s side further at ease. Then, Dani Parejo converted a consolation penalty kick for last year’s Copa del Rey winners in added time. Real Madrid will meet the winners of Thursday’s semi-final match between FC Barcelona and Atletico Madrid in Sunday’s showpiece at the King Abdullah Sport City Stadium in Jeddah. Germany international Kroos caught Valencia’s Jaume Domenech out to open the scoring in the 15th minute. He curled a cross towards goal while the goalkeeper was still organising his defence and the ball flew over the line before Domenech could recover. The soft manner of the goal appeared to hit Valencia hard after an even start to the game and Isco put Real Madrid further ahead by volleying home in the 39th minute. His goal came after a sweeping move involving Federico Valverde and Dani Carvajal. Modric buried Valencia’s faint hopes of a second half revival, providing a classy finish with the outside of his boot in the 65th minute to completing another incisive Real Madrid counter-attack. “We were in complete control throughout the game. We came out with the intention of getting hold of the ball. That’s what we did and our plan worked perfectly,” Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro told reporters. The 62,000-capacity arena was around two-thirds full for the first game of the competition. It used to be a two-legged season curtain raiser between the Spanish league champions and the Cup winners but has been given a radical facelift. Spanish football federation chief Luis Rubiales spearheaded the changes to the format. Rubiale increased the number of teams to four and signed a three-year deal to move it to Saudi Arabia, which media reports say is worth 40 million euros annually.

By Andrew DownieRIO DE JANEIRO,(Reuters)-Germany won their first ever Olympic gold medal in women’s football yesterday when they turned in a superior second half performance to beat Sweden 2-1.The no. 2 ranked Germans, who are now one of only three women’s teams to win both the Olympics and World Cup, scored two goals in the second half, and although the Swedes got a goal back they could not get a second to take the game into extra time.Sweden, who scored just three goals in their five games before the final, started more positively than their previous form suggested, but Germany started to impose themselves as time went on and the best chance of the half fell to Anja Mittag after 25 minutes.Leonie Maier’s curling shot was only parried by the Swedish keeper and the ball fell to Mittag just yards from goal but she blasted the ball high and wide.The sides were evenly match but things changed in the second half and it was the Germans who deservedly took the lead three minutes into the second period.When they did it was a goal worthy of a cup final. Dzsenifer Maroszan gathered a cross ball on the edge of the box and had time to steady herself before curling a perfect strike into the top right hand corner of the net.They extended their lead 14 minutes later thanks to an unfortunate own goal. A Sara Daebritz free kick from 20 yards smacked the post and Linda Sembrandt tried to clear but instead kneed the ball into her own goal from just a few yards out.Sweden reacted almost immediately and just five minutes later Stina Blackstenius pulled them back into the game. Olivia Schough hit a beautiful low cross into the box from the right and Blackstenius slid in between two defenders and poked the ball home to cut the deficit.Schough had a great chance to level the scores three minutes from time but her shot was blocked just yards from goal.The win was a perfect farewell for German coach Silvia Neid, who was managing the side in her last match.Germany missed out on the Olympics in 2012 but won the bronze the last three times they played, in 2000, 2004 and 2008.
Published on January 17, 2014 at 4:56 am Contact Trevor: firstname.lastname@example.org | @TrevorHass When Pittsburgh takes on Syracuse in the Carrier Dome on Saturday, it will do so without one of its best shooters.Redshirt sophomore forward Durand Johnson is out for the remainder of the season after tearing his ACL. The No. 22 Panthers (16-1, 4-0 Atlantic Coast) will have a chance to knock off No. 2 Syracuse (17-0, 4-0) on Saturday, but will have to do so without Johnson’s long-range shot. “He’ll be out for the year,” said Pittsburgh head coach Jamie Dixon during the ACC coaches’ teleconference on Monday, “but I expect him to be back here down the road next year, working hard as always and getting better, like he did this year and throughout his career.”Before his injury, Johnson was averaging 8.8 points and three rebounds off the bench this season. Pitt will need increased contributions from its four freshmen — Jamel Artis, Chris Jones, Josh Newkirk and Michael Young — who are averaging a combined 16.8 points per game.In Johnson’s two games before the injury, he scored 17 and 11 points on 7-of-11 combined shooting. Against Maryland on Jan. 6, he hit 3-of-4 3-pointers and shot 6-of-8 overall.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textDespite the significant loss and the inexperience of those filling Johnson’s place, Dixon said his freshmen don’t need to change what they’re doing or try to do too much. He added that the only thing they need to do differently is play with more passion. “No one’s going to reinvent themselves at this point,” Dixon said. Along with his 3-point shooting, Johnson’s vocal leadership will be missed, Dixon said. He’s a positive talker on the bench, and Dixon said his teammates feed off that energy. While Johnson’s on the bench, though, Dixon expects more of the same. Even though he won’t be playing or practicing, he’ll still contribute off the court.“I think Durand and his personality are a big part of our team,” Dixon said, “as well as his basketball attributes.”As Boston College proved on Monday, one of the most lethal ways to contend with Syracuse is via the 3-point shot. The Eagles hit 9-of-21 3s, including six from Lonnie Jackson, and nearly staged the upset. Pitt will try to complete the task without one of its outside weapons.“It’s tough,” Dixon said.
