Life in the Fast Lane

first_imgA motorist has admitted to travelling at 172mph on a road in Oxfordshire – the fastest speeding incident of its kind recorded in Britain.  Timothy Brady, of Harrow, North West London, achieved the speed in a Porsche 911 Turbo as he travelled along the A420 near Abingdon in January this year.Caught by a routine police speed check, Brady admitted in Oxford Crown Court to one count of dangerous driving. He pleaded not guilty to one count of aggravated vehicle taking.Brady’s is not the only recent driving incident to attract attention. Earlier this month, the Marquess of Blandford, whose ancestral home is Blenheim Palace, appeared in Oxford Crown Court on a string of motoring charges.In one incident, the Marquess tailgated drivers at high speed, before blocking traffic and directing a ‘tirade of abuse’ at an innocent driver. The Marquess pleaded guilty to criminal damage and dangerous and careless driving on two occasions, and a separate charge of dangerous driving.Both defendants are due to be sentenced next month.last_img read more

Botrytis Blight in Landscape

first_imgThe late-spring sun is cranking up the heat. It’s hard to believe the long, cold winteris still causing problems in Georgia landscapes.”We’ve had a lot of Botrytis blight in landscape plants this spring,” saidJean Williams-Woodward, a plant pathologist with the University of Georgia ExtensionService.Botrytis blight is caused by a fungus, Botrytis cinerea, she said. Commonlyknown as “gray mold,” it’s the most common pathogen in any greenhouse, nurseryor landscape. It attacks any aboveground part of many vegetable and landscape plants.”Botrytis is always a problem for any flowering plant,” Williams-Woodwardsaid. “The problem this spring has been mostly in bedding plants. It hasn’t been toobad in woody ornamentals.”The problem started, she said, in the state’s greenhouses, mostly because of the winterthat didn’t want to end.”Greenhouse growers had all these bedding plants ready to go, but it was still toocold,” Williams-Woodward said. “They couldn’t sell them.”Waiting for spring sales to rev up, growers wound up having to hold the plants a monthlonger than they normally would have. And the plants suffered from having to be held solong. Some flowers dropped off, and leaves yellowed.Now the plants are in the landscape, where Botrytis is easier to control because theplants are more spread out. But it’s still something to contend with.Because the injured and yellowing tissues are more vulnerable, Williams-Woodward saidBotrytis blight could be more of a problem in landscapes this year.Botrytis attacks these old flowers and leaves and other weak tissues first, she said.Then it spreads into healthy tissue. On bedding plants, Botrytis often causes leaf spotswhen infected flowers drop onto leaves. It’s most active under wet conditions and when thehumidity is high and the air is stagnant.Williams-Woodward said the fungus is easy to identify. With a magnifying glass, andoften without it, she said, you can see a gray-brown web and grape-like clusters of sporeson infected tissues.”The spores are dry and are easily dispersed by air movement,” she said.”Overhead watering and rain disperse the spores, too. The force of the water dropletlanding on a leaf creates a shock wave that dislodges the spores into the air.”Splashing water droplets can carry the spores to nearby plants, too.”Pick up a plant with Botrytis sometime and gently flick the infected plantpart,” she said. “A cloud of spores can usually be seen floating in the airabove the plant.”Controlling Botrytis in the landscape takes a little cleaning up, using a fungicide andmaybe changing a few things around your plants.”Prune dead and injured stems from cold-damaged plants,” Williams-Woodwardsaid. “Clean the ground (and the inside of pots) of dead, fallen leaf litter. Andremove yellowing leaves from the base of plants.”People who pay regular attention to their plants can prevent the spread of the fungus.Picking off and discarding spent flowers and yellowing leaves as they show up will oftenkeep plants healthy.You may need to space your plants farther apart, too, to allow for better aircirculation. If Botrytis is a problem, don’t use overhead irrigation, she said.Because the fungal spores spread around so easily, fungicides can be important incontrolling Botrytis.”Spray a protective fungicide after the plants are free of blighted tissue,”Williams-Woodward said. “Consult your county agent to find out which fungicide to usefor a particular plant.”last_img read more

Villa out of relegation zone as Trezeguet sinks Arsenal

first_img“The Kroenkes and the board and the sporting director, I have their full backing. I have that 100 percent. The fans have to believe what I’m saying,” Arteta added.Arsenal’s long-standing weakness at set-pieces reared its head again as Villa snatched the lead in the 27th minute.Tyrone Mings glanced Conor Hourihane’s corner across the six-yard box and Trezeguet was left unmarked to blast a fierce strike past Arsenal keeper Emiliano Martinez.Trezeguet has been Villa’s savour as the stakes have got higher and his vital goal followed his brace in the victory against Crystal Palace nine days earlier.Jack Grealish, strongly linked with a close-season move, was captaining Villa in what could have been his last home game with the club he supported as a boy.Asked after the match about his future, Grealish said: “I’m not too sure at the moment. I have one aim and that’s to keep Villa in the Premier League. That’s all I’m thinking about.” Watford’s 4-0 thrashing against Manchester City earlier on Tuesday had opened the door for Villa to escape the bottom three. And Villa seized their chance with a first home Premier League win over Arsenal in 18 attempts dating back to 1998. Dean Smith urged Aston Villa to finish the job after they climbed out of the Premier League relegation zone as Trezeguet clinched a priceless 1-0 win against Arsenal on Tuesday night. Smith’s side have their survival fate in their own hands after the Egypt winger’s first-half strike at Villa Park.Advertisement Read Also: Ronaldo waves off Serie A, Europe records for Juventus winArsenal were better in the second half but Bukayo Saka blazed over from a good position 12 yards out.With the tension mounting, Villa rode their luck when Eddie Nketiah’s glancing header hit the post and bounced back into Pepe Reina’s hands.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Villa are now fourth bottom and have moved ahead of third-bottom Watford on goal difference, with Smith’s men on -26 compared to the Hornets’ -27.They head to West Ham for their final game of the season on Sunday, while Watford visit Arsenal and second-bottom Bournemouth, three points from safety, travel to Everton.There are a multitude of permutations that could decide relegation, but Villa will be safe if they can better Watford’s result on what is certain to be a dramatic finale.If Villa and Watford both win, goal difference or goals scored will decide who goes down.“It is a big boost, that’s for sure. We knew we had to get that win to catch Watford and now we have got the season in our own hands,” Smith said.“That’s all you can ask going into the last game. It was a great performance and an even better result against a good team who just beat two of the best teams in Europe.“We have taken the season to the last day. Watford can go and win at Arsenal so we have to make sure we win at West Ham.”Having secured an FA Cup final place by beating Manchester City on Saturday, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta made six changes and Arsenal looked a shadow of the team who impressed at Wembley.“Emotionally and physically it’s been a very demanding week but I saw a team who wanted to fight until the end,” Arteta insisted.Arsenal cannot finish higher than eighth and must win the FA Cup final against Chelsea to qualify for next season’s Europa League.For all the positive signs since Arteta took charge in December, Arsenal will suffer their worst Premier League finish since 1995.“It tells you the gap doesn’t lie. We have to make that smaller and smaller,” Arteta said.“I know where we are in certain areas and where we need to improve. We will get that.”– Arteta plea –A plane trailing a banner reading “Back Arteta Kroenke Out” was flown over Villa Park during the match, but Arteta pleaded with Arsenal fans to trust he has the support of the US-based owner.

Stand by what I said in 2016 about love I received from India: Shahid Afridi

first_imgLAHORE: Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi said that he has always enjoyed playing against India and that he still stands by what he said in 2016 about receiving more love in India than he did back in Pakistan.”I have always enjoyed India. We’ve beaten them pretty comprehensively quite a few times. I believe we’ve beaten them so much that they used to ask us for forgiveness after the match,” he said on the Cric Cast show on YouTube.Afridi was captain of the Pakistan side that came to India for the 2016 T20 World Cup. He had said then that the team had got more love then than they probably ever did even in Pakistan.His recent comments on Kashmir and his war of words with former India batsman Gautam Gambhir has led to a significant souring of relationship between him and Indian fans but Afridi said that he stands by what he said then.”I stand by what I said in 2016, that I have got more love in India than from any other country. Back then I had gone there as a captain and hence as an ambassador of Pakistan,” he said.”I enjoyed a lot playing against India and Australia, you have more pressure. They are good teams, big teams. Going and performing in their conditions is the big thing.”Afridi also said that his 141 that he scored in the 1999 Chennai Test was his favourite knock. “My most memorable innings was the 141 against India, that too in India. I was not going on that trip; they were not taking me. Wasim bhai (Akram) and the chief selector that time supported me a lot. It was a very difficult tour and that inning was very important,” Afridi said. IANSAlso Watch: Get Set Global: Deep Dive With The UK Frontlinerslast_img read more

Erickson: Watch women’s hockey this weekend

first_imgFact 1: It’s the weekend.Fact 2: Men’s hockey and both basketball teams are out of town.So what are you going to do for entertainment this weekend besides hiking across campus in the freezing cold only to attend some crowded sauna of a party?Well if a good sports fix is needed that isn’t watching a mashup of the NFL’s best – or almost-best, considering no Packers (or Steelers, obviously) will be there – go to the women’s hockey games.The Wisconsin women’s hockey team is by far one of UW’s best teams, if not the best.This may be a bold statement, but for starters, the squad is the only UW team to win three national titles in the last five years and it could potentially be on its way to another.Through 26 games this season, the Badgers have only lost two and tied one. The tie came last weekend against reigning national champions Minnesota-Duluth. The Badgers earned the extra point in the tie, winning the shootout and inflating their lead in the WCHA to 12 points ahead of the Gophers.What other team can claim such a dominant form of success?The football team may come to mind, but we all know the heartbreak that season ended in. They also didn’t play championship caliber teams week-in and week-out.The hockey team’s dominance on the ice is not the only reason you should go to the games this weekend. No. 1 Wisconsin welcomes conference rival No. 4 Minnesota to the Kohl Center in what will be one of the squad’s final tests of the regular season.Not only is it a test for the Badgers, but it will also be one of the NCAA’s oldest rivalries played at its absolute finest.With intense emotions surrounding the game already due to the fierce rivalry between Minnesota and Wisconsin, the Gophers are certainly hoping to spoil some of the Badgers’ success and head home with a couple of huge upsets favoring their record.Earlier in the season Minnesota handed Wisconsin it’s first loss in its very first road game. The following night, Wisconsin took the ice with a fury that lead it to a 5-0 win.It was a physical series – freshman forward Madison Packer got in the middle of a fight with some of the Minnesota players after her line mate and fellow forward Brittany Ammerman was decked by Minnesota goalie Noora R?ty.“I’m not the biggest player out there, but playing with Hilary [Knight] and Packer, I’m not too scared,” Ammerman said. “I’m going to keep going to the net and do what I want. If they want to throw punches at me, they can and they’ll get a penalty, I’m not going to fight back. It’s my first time home against our rival team. I think it’s going to be a lot of fun. It’s going to be feisty and there are going to be punches thrown, I can guarantee that. But we’re a classy team, we’re disciplined and with maybe 10,000 fans here Saturday night, that’ll get a little crazy.”There is no other women’s hockey matchup that could be just as exciting as a men’s game.Sure, there’s no legal checking or as many fights, but the Badgers/Gophers rivalry itself sparks a lot of emotions, and both teams will get physical and a little dirty.Players on both sides will be playing as if for the national title. They might as well be.In the 10 years the NCAA title game has been played for women’s hockey, Minnesota and Wisconsin have made appearances a combined total of seven times, facing each other once – the Badgers won.Being two of the best teams in the nation, both squads want to end the other’s win streak and take bragging rights for the season. That’s how badly these teams want to beat each other.“I can imagine what the fans feel,” sophomore defenseman Saige Pacholok said. “As a player – I wouldn’t say hatred – but a deep desire to just beat them. Obviously we’ve had great games against them all the time. That makes it more exciting. I love the rivalry. I thrive off that stuff. I think we get more pumped up for the game.”While the rivalry alone could bring more than the approximate 2,000-person crowd the Badgers have been drawing to the Kohl Center this season, Wisconsin is hoping to fill the Kohl to the brim and show the Gophers what being a Badger is all about.With this goal in mind on Saturday night, students get in free and get a free t-shirt (while supplies last) and a chance to win a 150-dollar Best Buy gift card. General admission tickets are only a dollar for those who can’t seem to find their student I.D.For every fan in attendance, Becker Law Office will donate one dollar to Second Harvest. Non-perishable food items will be collected at the door donated, as well.Not only will you be entertained, you will also be helping a good cause.In the words of head coach Mark Johnson, “it’s a win-win situation.”Kelly is a sophomore intending to major in journalism. Will you help Fill the Bowl this weekend and show the Gophers what being a Badger is all about? Let her know at [email protected]last_img read more
