Jeremy Goyings, June 13

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest It is a nice morning, but it would be a lot nicer if we had a little bit of rain. We are in dire need here of some rain pretty quick. A week ago Saturday we had seven tenths and that didn’t even fill the cracks. We were back in the field putting on anhydrous the next day. It was amazing how dry it was after almost an inch of rain. It had been close to two weeks since a major rain before that.We were just walking the wheat and it came through flowering very nicely. We don’t have any visible disease pressure yet. Time will tell when the combine gets to roll. I think we’ll be at least a week or so ahead. We’ll probably be rolling here in two weeks, if not a little before that. Hopefully we get some rain on Wednesday or Thursday and the rain may help finish it off. If you can believe it we are at 100% chance of rain on Wednesday.Everything is up and going and looking pretty good. In hindsight that stuff we planted on April 27 struggled and I replanted some of those beans. They are popped out of the ground but they need a rain or they are going to dry up.On May 31 and June 1 I did all of the replanting. That is probably my least favorite job to do on the farm. Out of the 400 acres I planted early, I redid about 200 acres. They are non-GMO beans and they yield well for us, but they are not as strong popping out of the ground.We finished up sidedressing on Friday. Everything went on well and the corn is looking pretty good. There is a stand everywhere but some of that early stuff does not have a picket fence stand.last_img read more

Heat raise Chris Bosh’s No. 1 jersey to the rafters

first_imgFormer Miami Heat player Chris Bosh’s jersey is raised at the team’s retirement of his jersey at halftime of an NBA game between the Heat and the Orlando Magic, Tuesday, March 26, 2019, in Miami. Bosh played 13 seasons, the first seven in Toronto and the last six in Miami. He averaged 19.2 points and 8.5 rebounds, was an All-Star 11 times and won two championships.(AP Photo/Joe Skipper)MIAMI — Chris Bosh stood at center court, looked out at the Miami Heat fans and just let the words flow. He spoke about his health scare in 2015. He spoke of his grandfather, the one he called Daddy Jack, the one who told his first grandson that he was going to be special one day.And was Daddy Jack ever right.ADVERTISEMENT Colombia protesters vow new strike after talks hit snag Panelo: Duterte ‘angry’ with SEA Games hosting hassles Sports venues to be ready in time for SEA Games PLAY LIST 00:59Sports venues to be ready in time for SEA Games01:27Filipino athletes get grand send-off ahead of SEA Games00:50Trending Articles02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss IOC lifts threat to remove weightlifting from Paris Olympics Trump tells impeachment jokes at annual turkey pardon event LATEST STORIES In Heat history, his grandson is now officially immortal.Wearing a Heat championship ring on both hands, Bosh watched a giant banner bearing his name and No. 1 raised to the rafters of AmericanAirlines Arena on Tuesday night — then delivered an emotional address to the crowd, part of it even in Spanish as a show of respect to the Latin culture of Miami.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logistics“My name, my family name up here, that’s something I used to get laughed at for dreaming of,” Bosh said. “So never let anyone tell you that you can’t accomplish your dream. Those four letters on the back of that jersey are my wife’s name, my kids’ name, my father’s name, my grandfather’s name. We’re not just carrying on for another generation. But now, Daddy Jack, we’re up there forever.”The ceremony came a little more than three years after Bosh played his final game of a 13-year career, 11 of those good enough for All-Star nods, four of them culminating in trips to the NBA Finals, two of them capped by championships. He is the fourth player to have his number retired by the Heat, joining Alonzo Mourning, Tim Hardaway and Shaquille O’Neal. Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Cayetano: Senate, Drilon to be blamed for SEA Games mess Wade introduced Bosh, telling stories of how he learned Spanish off Rosetta Stone CDs and how he became an outstanding self-taught guitar player who wound up jamming with the legendary Buddy Guy. He also talked about how much he admires the way Bosh embraces being a father and husband.“The person who made the ‘Big 3’ era legendary,” Wade said.Spoelstra tells stories of his time with Bosh all the time. One of his favorites — the night Bosh, after a playoff loss in Indiana put the Heat down 2-1 in a series, knocked on the door of his hotel suite at 2 a.m. with beers in hand. They sipped and talked for 45 minutes, not a word said about basketball. The Heat won Game 4, and the series.“If you want to understand our culture and what we’re about, there’s nothing better than a night like tonight,” Spoelstra said.The Heat also presented Bosh with a $50,000 gift for his foundation and a one-of-a-kind guitar designed by his friend Rey Jeffet Jr. And in his remarks, Bosh detailed how much his first health scare in 2015 — caused by a blood clot, just like how his career ultimately ended in 2016 — was ultimately aided by Heat fans.The team sent thousands of get-well cards from fans to Bosh’s home. He read them all.“Those letters pushed me to get back on this court,” Bosh said. “Those letters inspired me to get back up and walk across the room when I didn’t think I had the energy to do it.”For a time, he and the Heat were estranged. Bosh wanted to keep playing. The Heat didn’t feel his health issues would allow that. Eventually, the sides reached an understanding and then they finally began talking again.Now he’s back in the Heat family, forever.“I feel like I can officially, officially, officially move on,” Bosh said. “It all happened really fast, but we’re here. I’m so happy. And we get to move on into the next life together.” “Forever, and for always, a lifer of the Miami Heat,” Heat President Pat Riley said, moments before Bosh’s banner was unfurled and hoisted.Riley called Bosh’s rebound and assist late in regulation of Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals — the ones that set up Ray Allen’s game-tying, series-saving 3-pointer — the biggest in Heat history. Bosh went a step further.“The biggest rebound in NBA history,” Bosh said.There will be, at minimum, three more Heat jersey retirements in the not-so-distant future — Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Udonis Haslem are all locks to see their name and number swaying over the court not long after their careers end.Former Miami Heat player Chris Bosh reacts at the team’s retirement of his jersey at halftime of an NBA game between the Heat and the Orlando Magic, Tuesday, March 26, 2019, in Miami.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra decided long ago that, even with Tuesday’s Miami-Orlando matchup being such a big game in terms of playoff hopes, his players were going to be out on the floor to see the Bosh ceremony.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Bloomberg: US would benefit from more, not fewer, immigrants Google Philippines names new country director Wintry storm delivers US travel woes before Thanksgiving Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting View commentslast_img read more

Fans Poking Fun At Wildcats Recruit Isaiah Briscoe After He Accidentally Suggests Derrick Rose Went To Kentucky

first_imgJohn Calipari, to his credit, has had a great deal of success putting his college players in the NBA. While most of Cal’s representatives in the league hail from Kentucky, there are a still a few – like Tyreke Evans and Derrick Rose – leftover from his Memphis days.Wednesday night, during the McDonald’s All American Game, top UK recruit Isaiah Briscoe was asked by ESPN’s Jay Williams why he chose to play for Coach Cal. Briscoe’s response involved him listing off the names of numerous NBA stars coached by Calipari. And while he was probably just mixing up his words, he did suggest that Rose had played for Kentucky.Fans on social media, predictably, have been having a field day with the quote, perhaps unfairly. Kentucky Commit, Isaiah Briscoe: “I chose Kentucky because of UK greats like Derrick Rose”— The Golden Jew (@GoldenJew) April 2, 2015Isaiah Briscoe: Derrick Rose went to that other school called Kentucky which is actually called Memphis— Connor Gross (@Cgross920) April 2, 2015Isaiah Briscoe realizes Rose & Evans played for Cal at Memphis right? #McDonaldsAllAmericanGame— Jacob McCallister (@RockChalkJacob) April 2, 2015“@GoldenJew: Kentucky Commit, Isaiah Briscoe: “I chose Kentucky because of UK greats like Derrick Rose”” pic.twitter.com/UQZQ12VGHb— Christopher Burr (@HeisenBURRRg) April 2, 2015“@GoldenJew: Kentucky Commit, Isaiah Briscoe: “I chose Kentucky because of UK greats like Derrick Rose”” pic.twitter.com/mI1tN9g9mc— Keep It Real 2015 (@A2K4Life) April 2, 2015Kentucky Commit, Isaiah Briscoe: “I chose Kentucky because of UK greats like Derrick Rose” pic.twitter.com/rSMkVTx4UK— Keyser Söze (@WhoButMe_) April 2, [email protected]: Kentucky Commit, Isaiah Briscoe: “I chose Kentucky because of UK greats like Derrick Rose” pic.twitter.com/nCiItEK0Wx— Bryan Evans (@BryGuy2103) April 2, 2015Briscoe is clearly aware that Calipari coached at Memphis, so perhaps he just got nervous live on television.

Materials and energy stocks weigh on Toronto market loonie ends lower

first_imgCanada’s main stock index closed down Wednesday as commodity prices slipped, while increased scrutiny on U.S. technology stocks helped push U.S. markets down.The day’s market drop followed a trend of down days recently as concerns over trade wars and regulatory investigations into premier tech stocks have rattled markets, said Norman Levine, managing Director of Portfolio Management Corp. in Toronto.“It’s generally got a negative tone to it, and it’s continuing to be led by the high-flying tech stocks for the most part.”The S&P/TSX composite index closed down 46.24 points to 15,169.94, driven by base metals and materials as worries about Chinese growth and demand increase, said Levine.“Metal stocks are more worried about growth in China and they need that for higher metal prices, and metal prices aren’t doing a whole lot right now, and gold is weak today as well.”In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average closed down 9.29 points to 23,848.42. The S&P 500 index closed down 7.62 points to 2,605.00 and the Nasdaq composite index was down 59.58 points to 6,949.23.The declines included losses from major U.S. tech stocks, with Amazon falling on reports U.S. President Donald Trump is looking to go after the company and Tesla declining on a downgraded credit rating and more concerns over its self-driving vehicles, following recent declines at Facebook and Twitter.“The big story here is the big tech stocks trading at multiples that make no sense but they were going up purely on momentum, the wind is coming out of the sail here, and they’re looking vulnerable and bringing down the rest of the market with them,” said Levine.The decline in stocks was felt in Canada as well, where BlackBerry Ltd. beat analyst expectations with US$233 million of revenue for the last quarter but slipped 1.38 per cent to $15.76 on the TSX.The stock losses from particular issues at larger technology companies are, however, likely distorting the view of the overall health of market because they have so much sway over some of the indexes, said Levine.“Indexes are going to show, especially in the US, more negative than what’s going on with the average stock.”The Canadian dollar closed at 77.51, down 0.2 of a US cent.The May crude contract ended down 87 cents to US$64.38 per barrel and the May natural gas contract was down two cents to US$2.69 per mmBTU.The June gold contract closed down US$17.90 to US$1,330.00 an ounce and the May copper contract was even at US$3 a pound.last_img read more

Shutting down Wellington St. @ctvottawa #ottnews pic.twitter.com/a3zU9zgay3— Catherine Lathem (@CatherineCTV) February 19, 2019“The core message is we need immediate action for our pipelines to get in the ground, to get to tidewater and to the rest of Canada,” said lead organizer Glen Carritt, the owner of an oilfield fire and safety company in Innisfail, Alta.The protesters want the Liberal government to scrap the carbon tax and two bills that overhaul environmental assessments of energy projects and ban oil tankers from the northern coast of British Columbia. Carritt said participants also are unhappy about the government’s recently signing a non-binding United Nations compact on global migration.Carritt said Canada’s borders “need to be controlled” by Canada and its citizens, not the United Nations.Just got to the Parliament Hill where trucks are blasting their horns and people are beginning to gather #UnitedWeRollForCanada #StarConvoy #yow #ConvoyForCanada #UnitedWeRoll #ConvoyToOttawa pic.twitter.com/byArDCHvgl— Hamdi ‘hamdog’ Issawi (@hamdiissawi) February 19, 2019 Carritt originally referred to his convoy as a “yellow vest convoy” but renamed it United We Roll after it too was linked to people spewing hateful rhetoric against Muslims and immigrants.“After much consideration we have decided to make this convoy about being inclusive and supporting Canadians first and foremost,” Carritt wrote on the protest’s GoFundMe page in late January. “Our new name is United We Roll! Convoy For Canada!”Lead organizer Glen Carritt says the display is about showing support for new oil pipelines and opposition to the federal carbon tax and new rules on oil transportation.The convoy includes members of the Yellow Vest Movement, whose demonstrations across the country have had widely varying agendas, from supporting pipelines to denouncing a United Nations compact on global migration.center_img OTTAWA, O.N. – Hundreds of trucks and people have arrived in Ottawa to protest the federal government’s policies on the oil industry.The main portion of the United We Roll Convoy set out from Red Deer, Alta., last Thursday and made stops in Regina, Dryden, Thunder Bay, and Sault Ste.
