Week 5 football preview: Corning to host Anderson; Red Bluff travels to Yreka

first_imgCorning >> Friday night will be a monumental test for the Corning High football team. Not only are the Cards battling a top 3 opponent in the Northern Section Division III media poll, but the Anderson Cubs ended Corning’s post season a year ago. The Cubs went into Cardinal Stadium and took down Corning, 14-13 in the opening round of the D-III playoffs last year.

Jon Miller, July 11

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Basically the last two weeks straw has been my life. We finished harvesting wheat July 2 or so and the yield and quality were good. Overall the wheat yielded right around 100 bushels. We have had some fields do really well before, but for the total wheat acreage I would say this is one of the best years we’ve ever had. The late frost didn’t seem to affect the yield. The quality of the wheat we have delivered has been excellent with high test weights. We should have less than 200 acres left to bale and it has been averaging over 100 bales an acre. The straw quality is still really good. We rolled over 60,000 bales yesterday. That’s a lot of bales.There is a chance of rain in the middle of the week. We have had enough rain to hold us up a couple of times with baling but not enough rain to do much for the crops. The corn and beans could definitely use a drink.The corn is mostly tasseled and the beans are sprayed. We finished that last week. We did some test acres with Y-Drops right at pre-tassel to see if a little extra nitrogen adds anything to the corn yield on the end.We are double-crop planted up to where we have baled. I will probably stick beans in this week yet. The first double-crops we planted are almost taller than the wheat stubble. A couple more rains would really get them taking off.We are debating whether or not to have a few acres of fungicide flown on or not, especially with the markets taking a turn downward. We haven’t really seen much disease pressure and you hate to spend money if you don’t need to.last_img read more

Japan EU sign trade deal to eliminate nearly all tariffs

first_imgTOKYO – The European Union and Japan signed a landmark deal on Tuesday that will eliminate nearly all tariffs on products they trade.The ambitious pact signed in Tokyo runs counter to President Donald Trump’s moves to hike tariffs on imports from many U.S. trading partners. It covers a third of the global economy and markets of more than 600 million people.“The EU and Japan showed an undeterred determination to lead the world as flag-bearers for free trade,” Abe said at a joint news conference with European Council President Donald Tusk and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker.Tusk praised the deal as “the largest bilateral trade deal ever.” He said the partnership is being strengthened in various other areas, including defence, climate change and human exchange, and is “sending a clear message” against protectionism.The leaders did not mention Trump by name, but they did little to mask what was on their minds — highlighting how Europe and Japan have been pushed closer by Trump’s actions.The agreement was largely reached late last year. The ceremonial signing was delayed from earlier this month because Abe cancelled going to Brussels over a disaster in southwestern Japan, caused by extremely heavy rainfall. More than 200 people died from flooding and landslides.The measures won’t kick in right away and still require legislative approval. But they will bring Japanese consumers lower prices for European wines, pork, handbags and pharmaceuticals. Japanese machinery parts, tea and fish will become cheaper in Europe.The deal eliminates about 99 per cent of the tariffs on Japanese goods sold to the EU. About 94 per cent of the tariffs on European exports to Japan will be lifted, rising to 99 per cent in the future. The difference reflects exceptions on such products as rice, which enjoys strong political protection from imports in Japan.Overall, European farmers will benefit, Juncker said, though European consumers will be able to more easily buy luscious Kobe beef and famous Yubari melons.The EU said the trade liberalization will help raise European exports of chemicals, clothing, cosmetics and beer to Japan. Japanese will get cheaper cheeses, such as Parmesan, gouda and cheddar, as well as chocolate and biscuits.The imported wine and cheese could hurt sales by Japanese wineries and dairies, but Japanese consumers have historically coveted such European products.The major step toward liberalizing trade has been discussed since 2013.Apart from its deal with the EU, Japan is working on other trade agreements, including a far-reaching trans-Pacific deal. The partnership includes Australia, Mexico, Vietnam and other nations, although the U.S. has withdrawn.Abe praised the deal with the EU for helping his “Abenomics” policies, designed to wrest the economy out of stagnation despite a shrinking population and cautious spending. Japan’s growth remains heavily dependent on exports.___Follow Yuri Kageyama on Twitter at https://twitter.com/yurikageyamaHer work can be found at https://www.apnews.com/search/yuri%20kageyamalast_img read more

Energy Minister tells Business In Vancouver that Petronas is buying a stake

first_imgVANCOUVER, B.C. — Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources Minister Michelle Mungall has reportedly let it slip that Petronas will be taking a stake in the Shell-led LNG Canada project near Kitimat.According to Business In Vancouver, Mungall said during an interview that Petronas made it clear when it announced the cancellation of its Pacific NorthWest LNG  project last year that the cancellation was due to market conditions, and had nothing to do with the change in government.“And to fully emphasize that point, Petronas is now investing in LNG Canada’s project,” said Mungall during the interview.Business In Vancouver says that neither LNG Canada nor Petronas have confirmed Mungall’s statement. The Globe and Mail has previously reported that since scrapping Pacific NorthWest LNG last July, Petronas has been looking at acquiring a minority stake in LNG Canada, and has also said to be interested in acquiring Chevron’s stake in the proposed Kitimat LNG project. LNG Canada confirmed last week that it has awarded the engineering and procurement contract for its proposed LNG export terminal to the partnership of U.S.-based Fluor Corp. and Japan-based JGC Corp.Story courtesy Business In Vancouver: https://biv.com/article/2018/05/petronas-taking-stake-lng-canada-energy-minister With files from The Globe and Mail.last_img read more

Guardiola doesnt expect a more mature Benjamin Mendy

first_imgDuring a press conference this Tuesday, Pep Guardiola revealed that he doesn’t expect a more mature version of left-back Benjamin Mendy.In football there are players like Benjamin Mendy, who are different from the rest, they have a more jovial demeanor as they can’t seem to have an off switch and manager Pep Guardiola knew this when he first signed the Frenchman from AS Monaco.Ever since he got to Manchester City, this player has always shown a predilection for the more active way of life, the one that isn’t necessarily as private as perhaps the manager would like.Pep Guardiola has learned to separate the player from the public persona with Mandy and other players, but the Frenchman is the one who has given him a more challenging relationship.From the very start at Manchester City, Pep Guardiola repeatedly stated that he never really appreciated the social media life that his defender led, Mendy vowed to slow it down a bit but he never really did it.Now after a couple of years have passed, it appears that the Catalan manager has finally given up on his pursue to stop Mendy from being so public with his life and he has finally accepted the Frenchman for who he is.🗣 | Pep Guardiola: “Benjamin Mendy is in the squad tomorrow (against Burton). Maybe on the bench.”#FPL #FantasyPL #FFScout #GW24 #mcfc pic.twitter.com/6y3xXxq5NU— Fantasy Football Scout (@FFScout) January 22, 2019On Tuesday, when asked about this public persona that Benjamin Mendy has on all his social media accounts, Guardiola explained why he doesn’t have a problem with it anymore.The Catalan manager will be happy as long as the payer responds on training and on the pitch, he doesn’t care about the stuff outside work anymore.“I am delighted with Benjamin,” Guardiola told a news conference via Four Four Two.“I am sad because we were not able to play him because of injuries but that sometimes happens.”“The way he is training, the way he is in the locker room… you cannot imagine how much the people love him. I am delighted – I just want to use him more! That’s all.”“I am not unhappy with Mendy [using social media heavily]. I am not here to change his mentality. His way, the way he lives… is what it is. When we bought him, we knew it.”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.“So, when we are talking about training sessions, always it’s perfect but he is active on social media. He likes to be. It is what it is.”“We try to convince him, but I’m not his father! [I tell him]: ‘Be focused on your job and what we have to do. You are young, and you can be one of the best left-backs, but it’s up to you,’” he added.Pep Guardiola: Benjamin Mendy ‘needs to be focused’ to achieve potential https://t.co/OYoao9X0Z6 pic.twitter.com/SsCpZHlnCg— Prem Brew (@prembrew) January 23, 2019After hearing Pep Guardiola speak frankly about Benjamin Mendy’s lifestyle, thinking about the poor way in which Jose Mourinho managed this with Paul Pogba at Manchester United is inevitable.The Portuguese manager truly hated this side of the French midfielder, they were always at odds for several reasons but one of the biggest disagreements they had was due to an Instagram story that Pogba posted after Manchester United was eliminated from the FC Cup by Derby County.We could see Paul laughing on a short video right after the Red Devils were eliminated in penalties, this was the origin of the already famous argument between the two of them on next morning’s training session after the infamous defeat.Pep Guardiola takes a very different approach to this with Benjamin Mendy, he prefers to understand his players instead of trying to limit him and this has brought a very peaceful relationship between the two.Even if Pep Guardiola doesn’ like the whole circus that is the social media lifestyle, he understands that times have changed and everybody has to adapt to the new era.‘I’m not his dad’ – Guardiola won’t change much-loved Mendy https://t.co/3P2ThhhBvl pic.twitter.com/KZXk9nDGia— Cleansheet (@Cleansheet) January 22, 2019What’s your take on players who love using social media for everything?
