Chelsea beat Spurs in semi-final clash

first_imgEmbed from Getty Images Chelsea 4 Tottenham 2Eden Hazard and Nemanja Matic scored second-half goals as Chelsea won a pulsating FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham to secure a first final appearance in five years.Willian’s double had given the Blues the lead after an enthralling first half.Harry Kane cancelled out Willian’s superb early free-kick, but Heung-Min Son fouled Victor Moses in the box and Willian smashed home the resulting penalty.Dele Alli dragged Tottenham level after the break, but Hazard’s low shot and a thunderous first-time strike from Matic earned victory in the closing stages.Spurs, with Christian Eriksen starring, had long spells of possession on both occasions after drawing level, but failed to create many chances.And Antonio Conte’s side, who will play Arsenal or Manchester City in the final next month, earned a clinical win following the introduction of both Diego Costa and Hazard with just over 30 minutes remaining.Embed from Getty ImagesPedro and Willian were both to the fore as Chelsea made a lively start to the first period following a spine-tingling minute’s applause for Tottenham under-23 coach Ugo Ehiogu, the former England defender who this week died at the age of 44.Willian, who played in a front three alongside Pedro and the ineffective Michy Batsuyai, had already threatened by the time Nathan Ake’s tackle allowed Pedro to race through and provoke the foul that led to the opening goal.Willian curled in a glorious 20-yard free-kick, the Brazilian bending the ball into the far corner and past Hugo Lloris after Pedro had been cynically brought down by Toby Alderweireld.Batshuayi then missed a great chance to double the lead, heading tamely at goal from an N’Golo Kante cross.And Spurs, who have now only beaten Chelsea twice in 17 attempts, equalised when Kane flicked the ball into the far corner with a stooping header from Eriksen’s cross.Embed from Getty ImagesSpurs, who have now lost their past seven FA Cup semi-finals, gained in confidence having been second best before the equaliser and began to dominate possession, with Eric Dier going close with another headed chance.Willian’s cool spot-kick restored the Chelsea half-time lead, only for Alli to make it 2-2 with an exquisite first-time finish from Christian Eriksen’s cross.But the introduction of Hazard, Costa and Cesc Fabregas breathed new life into Chelsea.Hazard, who ended Tottenham’s title hopes with the equaliser in a 2-2 draw last season, crashed the ball home after Spurs failed to clear a Fabregas corner to put the Blues 3-2 up.And Matic smashed in an unstoppable 25-yard first-time effort from a Hazard pass to make it 4-2 soon after.Chelsea: Courtois; Azpilicueta, Luiz, Ake; Moses, Kante, Matic, Alonso; Willian [Hazard 61], Batshuayi [Costa 61], Pedro [Fabregas 74].Subs not used: Begovic, Zouma, Terry, Chalobah.   Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Urologists: Men, Forget the Blue Pill!

Mamelodi Sundowns crowned PSL champs

first_img8 May 2014 Mamelodi Sundowns secured South Africa’s 2013/14 Absa Premiership title on Tuesday evening, with one match remaining in the season, after a 3-0 win over SuperSport United at Loftus Stadium in Pretoria. It’s the first title for “The Brazilians” since winning the league by 10 points in 2006/07. They’re the Premier Soccer League’s (PSL) leading scorers and sport the league’s fourth-tightest defence. Interestingly, their goals have been shared around, with Katlego Mashego their top scorer with seven. Both Cuthbert Malajila and Tsholofelo Modise netted six times, and Dove Wome, Surprise Moriri and Anthony Laffor five times.Third PSL title for Moriri On Tuesday, it was Surprise Moriri, Teko Modise, and Malajila that found the back of the net. For Moriri, it was a third PSL title with Sundowns, as he was previously part of the teams that won in 2006/07 and the season that preceded that. “The boys worked hard. The guys who started the season laid the foundation for some of the guys who finished the season and that’s all about team work,” the veteran midfielder told the South African Press Association (Sapa) after the game. “Even the younger ones responded. Our experience couldn’t have worked if the younger ones were not there to follow us, so we had to lead the way.”Mosimane praised Moriri also praised coach Pitso Mosimane for his role in guiding the club to the title. “Pitso has been good,” he said. “One thing about him, he’s the kind of person who understands the culture of the South Africans and everybody. “He always makes sure that everyone is on their toes and you can see it. He makes sure that each player gives his best and finally we’re celebrating. “Pitso is open-minded and he doesn’t hold back. If you are wrong, he comes straight to you and he’ll tell you to your face that you are wrong, whether you are a senior or a junior, and this is the kind of person that we want.”Congratulations PSL CEO Brand de Villiers congratulated Sundowns on their title, saying: “We are happy to declare Mamelodi Sundowns the winners of the 2013/14 Absa Premiership tonight. “This has been a fantastic season for them, and I congratulate the club president Patrice Motsepe, management, coach Pitso Mosimane, captain Alje Schut and the players for a sterling season,” De Villiers said. “Mamelodi Sundowns showed character and determination coming behind in the Absa Premiership championship race and finishing at the summit.” Bobby Malabie, Absa Group executive for marketing and communication, added: “On behalf of Absa, my congratulations to Mamelodi Sundowns and their coach, Pitso Mosimane, for winning the 2013/14 Absa Premiership. “This season in particular has been one of the most exhilarating, and we’ve experienced some amazing and memorable performances which is testament to the talent of our South African football teams,” Malabie said. “Congratulations also to all the other teams who have competed tirelessly throughout the season, and for helping the game of football to prosper. The stage is set for an even more exciting 2014/15 season, which we are once again delighted to be the title sponsor of.”PSL title winners Since the PSL’s first season in 1996/97, the Pretoria club has claimed the title six times – more than any other team. Orlando Pirates have four titles to their name, Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United three titles each, and Santos and Manning Rangers one each. While the champions were crowned on Tuesday, the final round of fixtures on Saturday still contain lots of intrigue as clubs scrap it out for a place in the top eight and to escape the relegation playoff battle. Earlier this week, the PSL announced that the Absa Premiership Trophy will be handed to Mamelodi Sundowns after their final match at the Harry Gwala Stadium on Saturday. For Lamontville Golden Arrows, a 1-0 loss to AmaZulu on Tuesday ensured their drop to the First Division next season.last_img read more

Seed treatments can be important in a productive soybean crop

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Last year was more proof for Andy Rodefer of the value in placing a high priority on getting soybeans off to a good start.“We think you should be getting beans out there just as early as corn, if not earlier. On most occasions beans can take a lot of stress. Sometimes they don’t always look good but they can still come back after a lot of cold, tough weather and yield really well,” said Rodefer, who farms in Preble County. “In a lot of years planting early helps, but you have to protect the seed and roots as the plant comes out of the ground. In our area we hope we don’t have the rainfall like we did last year and that we get a good start for 2016.”And Rodefer hopes that is the case not only for his farm, but also the numerous area farms he works with as a Syngenta seed dealer and a soybean seed treatment facility owner.“We have been involved in the seed business for a number of years and now seed companies have a lot more to offer in seed treatments than what they used to. We had an opportunity to put our own treater set up in here at the farm to give farmers more choice in treatments and offer options that some of the seed companies don’t offer. By adding these treatments it can take good genetics and really get them to perform by protecting that yield,” Rodefer said. “We do some custom treating, but mostly we do true bulk and we usually run three to four main varieties. We normally start treating around the first of March all the way through planting season. We offer a lot of different treatments, including treatments Syngenta may not offer. There are also a lot of inoculants that can only be on the seed 60 to 120 days before you plant and that shelf life can limit what seed companies can offer. This puts things at the farmer level rather than the company level to open up the door for some different things.”The process starts with the arrival of untreated seed beans in a semi on the farm.“We put them in our storage tanks. Then, starting at the tank the seed goes to a conveyor belt that runs it into a scale hopper and weighs it. Everything is certified on the scales. Once we have a stamped weight, we run the seed down another conveyor that runs it into a treater and out the other end of it into another conveyor where it will go into a box, wagon or tender,” he said. “The system is pretty much automated. We have a computer screen in the building. We type in the variety and how many units and it is automated from there.”There are a number of different options with seed treatments, starting with untreated seed.“We have several farmers who get untreated beans because they don’t know if the treatments make a difference or not. The difference happens underground and sometimes you can visually see a difference and sometimes you don’t. When you get damp, cold conditions in the spring, though, seed treatmentsRodefer’s seed treatment facility is designed to be gentle on the seeds to provide a high quality end product.can really shine and in good conditions they can help maximize yield,” Rodefer said. “We add inoculant to some of those. There are all kinds of inoculants and I don’t know that there is much difference in performance between them, but we feel like inoculants are worth one to two bushels pretty easily. In terms of seed treatments, the biggest difference I look at is the active ingredients on the label. When you look at that you can separate the good from the bad and what you are really getting. Sometimes you get what you pay for.“We start out with CruiserMaxx and Vibrance, which is our low-end treatment from Syngenta. We start there and go up. CruiserMaxx has been on the market for a long time and Vibrance is a fungicide. We then move up to our biggest sellers, which are Clariva Complete beans that help with soybean cyst nematodes (SCN). The SCN are in the fields and they are definitely affecting yields. With a corn-bean rotation I think it is worth three or four bushels per acre pretty consistently. If you are soybeans after soybeans you can see eight or 10 bushels in some circumstances. We’ve seen in our own situation, if there is any early stress at all, seed treatments can be really valuable. We don’t recommend anything until we have seen the results on our farm.”Ohio State University Extension specialists agree, particularly in fields prone to wet, cold conditions early in the season. Seed treatments should be considered in fields where replanting has been needed more than once in the last 10 years and if there is a history of head scab in wheat (Fusarium) or Gibberella stalk rot in corn. Fields with a history of Phytophthora, Pythium, and Rhizoctonia can also typically benefit from fungicide seed treatments, according to Ohio State University Extension.“Host resistance is the primary means by which we manage many grain crop diseases, but there is little effort put into screening for resistance towards Pythium spp., Fusarium spp. (other than F. virguliforme which causes sudden death syndrome of soybean) and Rhizoctonia solani in comparison to other diseases. This is where seed treatments aimed at watermolds and true fungi can play a big role for fields which are high risk for these seed and seedling pathogens,” wrote Anne Dorrance and Pierce Paul in a CORN Newsletter article this winter. “This protects the seed and seedling when they are the most susceptible.”From Rodefer’s operation, the range of seed treatment options leads to a differing range of costs.“Our lowest treatment is around $14 a unit and our most expensive treatment package is in the low $20 range,” he said. “I know cost is a big factor now and it can be hard to make those decisions, but somewhere between 70% and 75% of our sales are from the most expensive seed treatment we offer. That tells me that, in our area, guys feel like they are worth it.”Along with using seed treatments, Rodefer believes there are several other important steps to take for getting soybeans off to a strong start.“We plant beans with a John Deere Air seeder. We started with a 750 no-till drill years ago and have been running the air seeder for a while now. We have done some studies against split row planters to see if the spacing helps with yield. We found that usually at the end of the day the yield is about the same, but you definitely have a more consistent drop and you use less seed with the planter. The disadvantage is that they are a lot heavier. They both have their pluses and minuses,” he said. “Most of my guys in 15-inch rows will be in the 170,000 to 180,000 range for a planting rate and the guys drilling will be closer to 200,000 to 220,000. We need to have a final stand around 140,000 or more I think so we can maximize soybean yields.“I think some vertical tillage in the corn stalks in the fall can help add a little yield. We also recommend fungicide and insecticide late in the season. We think in most cases it is worth a payback. All those little things can help protect the yield.”Of course, with soybean production, good weed control is essential for high yields.“We have been working on our weed program for the last couple of years and we use a pre- program and come back with Roundup and it has worked pretty well,” Rodefer said. “The vertical tillage in our cornstalks in the fall has really helped with the marestail. You don’t have to move much dirt to get some control there too.”Rodefer also thinks it is increasingly important to monitor SCN more closely on many farms.“We are in a corn-bean rotation and we have taken samples for SCN and we are right at the threshold of populations that can hurt yield,” he said. “We don’t see SCN and don’t consider it every year but maybe it is doing more damage than we think.”By working on the details, and getting the crop off to a solid start, soybeans can overcome quite a few obstacles.“Last year everything came up really well, but things deteriorated as the season went along. They snapped out of it and the bean height was not very tall, but they still ended up yielding pretty well for some people in this area,” Rodefer said. “There is nothing better than a seed customer telling you they had their best beans ever at the end of the year. That makes you proud to be able do something to help them.”last_img read more

Google Chrome Becomes Location Aware

first_imgGoogle just launched the latest developer version of Chrome, which now includes preliminary support for Google’s the W3C’s geolocation API. Google’s Geolocation API allows developers to pinpoint your computer’s location by looking at the WiFi networks around you, similar to SkyHook‘s technology that is part of Apple’s OSX and iPhone OS. For now, this new feature is still hidden behind a command line toggle and only available in the developer builds for Windows and OSX Leopard (it doesn’t work on Snow Leopard yet).To enable these built-in geolocation features, you have to run the browser with “–enable-geolocation.” It’s typical for Google to first hide these features behind a command line toggle before exposing them to a wider group of testers. The Chrome team also notes that the geolocation UI is still incomplete and that Chrome will forget the permissions you set.Preparing for Chrome OS?It makes sense for Google to enable geolocation for Chrome, especially given the impending release of the Chrome OS, which will also benefit from these new features. Mozilla already offers a built-in location API for Firefox and with Geosense for Windows, Windows 7 developers can now also make use of Google’s Geolocation API in their native apps.Location for Every BrowserThanks to the current efforts by most browser developers, location APIs will soon become ubiquitous and hopefully more developers will make use of them. While a number of mobile apps for the iPhone, for example, now make use of the location feature in the mobile version of Safari, only a small number of browser-based apps are currently aware of your location. While using WiFi location isn’t quite as precise as using a GPS, the precision is usually much better than relying on a user’s IP address. For more of our thoughts about location as a platform, also have a look at this post: The Era of Location-as-Platform Has Arrived.
