JUDGE PRAISES NIGHTCLUB STAFF AFTER THREE BROTHERS INVOLVED IN ATTACK ON DJ

first_imgA DJ at a popular nightclub says he has no doubt he would have been seriously hurt but for the swift actions of security staff after he was attacked by three brothers.The Doherty brothers appeared at Letterkenny Court.DJ Kevin Lennon was working at Voodoo Nightclub in Letterkenny when he opened a door to assist staff in ejecting a man from the club. However, a short time later he was attacked in a vicious manner which left him with a cut to the lip and other bruising.Three brothers, Liam, James and Peter Doherty of Drumnaskea, Letterkenny appeared at Letterkenny District Court yesterday in connection with the incident which took place on January 14th last.CCTV footage was viewed of the incident in court which showed Mr Lennon being punched by Peter Doherty before he fell to the ground and being surrounded by all three brothers.Peter Doherty, 21, was charged with assault while his two brothers Liam, 22 and James, 24, were charged with public order offences.Solicitor Patsy Gallagher said there was too much drink taken and it was Peter Doherty who admitted assaulting Mr Lennon.He said it was a case that they did not realise he was a member of staff and had thought that he had been another man who had earlier attacked Peter who was home for Australia for Christmas.Judge Paul Kelly asked Mr Lennon of Drumardagh, if he was recovered from his ordeal and if he would like to address the court.Mr Lennon said he would simply like to thank the security staff at Voodoo.“Who knows what might have happened if they had not acted so quickly. This could have been a hospitalization case,” he said.Judge Kelly said “As Mr Lennon said – if it was not for the reaction of the staff it could have been a lot worse. This was a very nasty incident for Mr Lennon when suddenly he finds himself on the ground with people with that level of intent around him.”He asked defense solicitor Mr Gallagher if the Doherty brothers had anything concrete to offer Mr Lennon by way of an apology.Mr Gallagher came back and said they could offer him a total of €500.Judge Kelly said refused the offer but said that if the men came up with a total of €1,500, he would adjourn the case until January 19th.“They’re all in this together as far as I can see,” added Judge Kelly.JUDGE PRAISES NIGHTCLUB STAFF AFTER THREE BROTHERS INVOLVED IN ATTACK ON DJ was last modified: October 21st, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DJ Kevin LennondonegalJudge Paul KellyletterkennyVOODOO NIGHTCLUBlast_img read more

Overcoming the challenges of the 2015 growing season

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest It is mid-July, 2015 somewhere in rural northwest Ohio. In any low areas, placid lakes sit where productive farm fields once dwelled and ducks paddle about in the place of dusty farm equipment. Blackened, rotting wheat plants hang their heads low in despair. Corn fields grow in waves rolling over the tile lines and dipping in between. Soybeans are just poking up through the ground, if they are there at all. The hot sun bakes the muddy edges of the slowly shrinking lakes, giving off a smell of rotting seeds and the death of a well-planned crop baking into the crusted, soggy soil.It is hard to imagine, even for those who sat in their farm shops and watched the rains fall day, after day, after day. It is devastating and difficult to believe that these worn-torn July fields battling Mother Nature have any hope of producing a successful crop. Many, in fact, did not, but somehow many farms still managed to prevail. There is no question that the magnitude and duration of the flooding problems early in 2015 defined the growing season for some northwest Ohio fields and farms.For this part of the state, the rains started early, spanning from late winter to early summer with few breaks of spring sunshine. The Farm Service Agency numbers showed that Ohio had 26,423 prevented planting acres of corn and 91,032 acres of prevented planting soybeans in 2015. Defiance County led the state in prevented planting acres with 34,678. Other prevented planting leaders were Paulding County with nearly 14,000 prevented planting acres and Putnam County with over 9,000 acres. In many cases in these and surrounding counties, the rains were unrelenting from early April through early July.From April 1 until June 28, Van Wert received over 24 inches of rain — 13.45 inches more than normal, according to USDA. Defiance had 7.45 inches more than normal. Statewide, nearly all locations had received more than normal rainfall by June 28. The northeast also had several areas with well aboveSuzette Vastano with Apple Farm Service decided to check out how deep the water really was near Covingtonnormal rainfall for 2015, including Akron with 5.51 inches more than normal and Mosquito Creek with 8.42 inches above normal. In contrast to the soggy spring in some areas, many other parts of Ohio experienced near perfect planting conditions in between showers in late April and early May.June set rainfall records in many parts of Ohio, though some areas remained dry until around the middle of the month. Widespread heavy rains brought most fieldwork to a halt in Ohio in the week ending June 22, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture crop progress report. After already being well beyond waterlogged and just starting to recover from previous flooding, parts of northwest Ohio were hit by another six inches of rain during the week ending June 28.The narrow planting windows for some areas magnified the importance of early planting dates this year.“The record rainfall in some areas this spring was mind boggling,” said Peter Thomison, Ohio State University Extension corn specialist. “There was a tremendous difference with the planting dates for corn this year that were really profound — 50 or 60 bushels just on a few days in planting date differences. The earlier corn was able to develop its secondary root system that allowed it to better tolerate the stress and saturated soil conditions. The corn doesn’t thrive under those conditions, but it at least survives. The corn that was planted later really struggled and had a much more difficult time recovering after conditions were more favorable. We have seen years where later planted corn did better, but this year was certainly a strong argument for planting corn early.”In general, the wet weather seemed to be harder on the corn yields than the soybeans, though visually speaking corn looked better for most of the season.“It almost seemed that farmers were relatively surprised with their soybean yields and were happier with the soybeans than they were with their corn at the end of the year,” Thomison said. “Some people said it was the best looking, worst yielding corn they ever had. I think nitrogen was a major issue. We lost a lot of N from the fields this year.”A 2015 OSU study looking at nitrogen rates revealed some insights into the N loss and offered some clues into disappointing corn yields. The research included plots with 0 pounds of N applied, 110 pounds applied and 220 pounds applied in a corn-after-corn setting.“Within each N rate treatment we observed tremendous variability in yield. Yields of check plots with 0 N applied ranged from 26 to 92 bushels per acre whereas yields of plots with 110 pounds of N per acre applied ranged from 91 to 181 bushels per acre and plots with 220 N pounds of N per acre applied ranged from 114 to 192 bushels per acre. It was all the luck of the draw based on the location in the field,” Thomison said. “The wetter spots took a major hit on yields even where the corn visually looked alright. Visually, it was very striking in the 0 plots where the corn was yellow and stunted, but in the plots with 110 and 220 pounds of N, the corn basically looked pretty good but the yields were not there in some cases.”N issues were also likely responsible for corn that “evened up” from the tile line roller coaster fields early in the season.“When soil conditions finally dried out there was still some soil available N there that had not been lost to denitrification and leaching, probably in the form of ammonia, and the plants resumed what appeared to be normal growth. Once that wet period ended, the plants appeared to be normal, but it didn’t always translate into normal yields,” Thomison said. “We had a study where we had to keep visiting the field and every time we went out to the plots it was raining or about to rain. We actually discarded some of the plots that were uneven, but by the time they were tasseling, you might not have been able to distinguish them from the plots that looked more normal early in the season. They appeared normal but they just didn’t get the nutrient uptake and growing conditions they needed for the yield potential.”The wet conditions also led to early disease issues in the fields for both corn and soybeans. Gray leaf spot and northern corn leaf blight began showing up in early July. Hybrids that were particularly susceptible to these diseases really benefitted from fungicide applications this year on some farms.In soybeans, all of the rain during May, June, and July led to a number of disease issues, according to Anne Dorrance, Ohio State University plant pathologist. Disease problems in 2015 soybeans included Sclerotinia stem rot, sudden death syndrome and frogeye leaf spot. The presence and severity of those diseases in fields will be important to remember while choosing varieties for next year.“Those fields that have a long history of Sclerotinia stem rot, Phytophthora root and stem rot, soybean cyst nematode, brown stem rot, and sudden death syndrome — the inoculum may decline a bit, but it is always there in wait for the highly susceptible variety and the perfect environment to strike again,” Dorrance said. “Don’t plant the same variety in the same field again next year, especially if you had disease this year. For frogeye leaf spot, this pathogen (Cercospora sojina) does overwinter here in Ohio. If your levels of frogeye hit the 6% leaf area affected or higher in the top canopy, it is time to switch to a different variety, move the resistance to frogeye as the main selection factor for variety selection for 2016.”Diseases may have gotten an earlier start than normal due to the extremely wet conditions, but by mid-August it was not hard to find gaping cracks from dry weather in some of the same fields that were completely submerged just a few weeks earlier. The generally drier conditions curtailed diseases in many fields later in the season.“There were reports of anthracnose early in the season. We were very concerned about the potential for northern corn leaf blight and gray leaf spot but we were fortunate in that regard because conditions turned dry later in the season. The dry conditions also produced some exceptionally dry corn out of these fields,” Thomison said. “I suspect there might have been localized problems, but by in large ear rots, mycotoxins and stalk lodging were all no-shows this fall.”By harvest, some of those devastated fields in northwest Ohio and around the state were looking better, but still produced highly variable results.“Later planted corn took it on the chin again then when conditions turned dry later in the season, which is the classic worst-case scenario,” Thomison said. “We were lucky, though, that we never had extremely high temperatures. The relatively mild temperatures saved us from much worse yields.”There were, no doubt, poor yields around the state, but Ohio’s farmers and their crops once again showed unbelievable resiliency in the extremely challenging situations of 2015.“The hybrids today are much better able to handle this than they were in the past. Many older hybrids would have just thrown out blanks or nubbin ears under the conditions we saw this year. Most of today’s hybrids have much greater resiliency than they did 20 years ago,” Thomison said. “We are seeing more of these extreme weather events. The bottom line is that you have to use best management practices and yields like this after the challenges we saw this year are a reflection of how remarkable corn is and the level of management out there.”The corn and soybean growing season of 2015 produced some record high and some record low yields (sometimes in the same farms and fields) depending on when and where the rains fell. Despite the downright disastrous start to the season for so many Ohio farms, as of Nov. 1, USDA estimates put the state’s average corn yield at 163 bushels and soybeans at 50 bushels per acre.last_img read more

Ohio’s Crop Progress — April 24th, 2017

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Warmer and drier weather contributed to the most significant planting progress this season. There were 4.2 days suitable for fieldwork in Ohio during the week ending April 16, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio State Statistician with the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. Rain toward the end of the week stalled some growers but dry weather quickly returned. The lightest amounts were in western and west central Ohio. In addition to the ongoing planting of oats, planting got underway for both corn and soybeans. Producers reported good to excellent pasture and range conditions, despite moisture surpluses. Applications of herbicides and fertilizer continued this week along with some tilling and field preparation.A big jump forward has been made in corn planting progress with 9% of seed in the ground, up from less than 1% the week before.Soybeans have yet to register on the progress report.Click here to see the full reportlast_img read more

Oh Grow Up: Inside The 4chan Hashtag Hoax #cutforbieber

first_imgFacebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification The three most popular photos of young women’s arms cut by razors or knives (link NSFW) currently circulating are in fact fake, initially spread from the Twitter accounts belonging to Internet pranksters. All other photos circulating either originated in the 4chan thread listed above, associated with Twitter accounts listed in the 4chan thread or are from known Twitter pranksters. (The forum users appear to like the name “Amanda,” possibly a twisted reference to Amanda Todd, the British Columbia teen who committed suicide in October 2012) Another giveaway the Twitter accounts are fake – besides obvious signs like being recently created and using pictures and following users listed in the 4chan thread – some of the fake accounts also follow the content aggregator site 9GAG, the archnemesis of 4chan (and Reddit).As for the global reach of the trend, a majority of young people not associated with 4chan used the hashtag to remark on how confused or concerned they were or how stupid they found the hashtag, believing their young peers were actually cutting themselves. Others filled the hashtag with photos of themselves mocking the trend by either threatening to cut their hair or their pets, cuttingpaper, smearing ketchup on their arms or cutting marijuana plants. All the teens and young 20-somethings mocking the trend then stirred Twitter outrage among concerned users who then furthered the longevity of the hashtag well into the night.The End ResultsThe young trolls set out make fools out of “Beliebers” by getting a teen girl to actually cut herself, but said teen girl never materialized. Thankfully, no one was that stupid, though this isn’t the first time the group has attempted to bait Bieber fans. 4chan’s /b/ recently tried to get Beliebers to shave their heads with a Bieber cancer hoax, but no teen girl believed that hoax, either. It seems teen girls are not as gullible as 4chan believes.Both 4chan’s /b/ and Beliebers have been called the scum of the Internet, with both communities stereotyped as composed primarily of minors – 4chan being predominantly male, Beliebers female. The days of teasing or pulling the hair of the girl you like have transformed into today’s digital shenanigans.No doubt one day members of both groups will grow up and find each other through online dating sites like OK Cupid. Until then, it looks like the rest of the Internet will have to put up with their underaged idiocy, be it in the form of pranks, worldwide trending hashtags about Bieber, or in this case, the unpleasant combination of both. Image courtesy of Helga Esteb / Shutterstock. Tags:#social media fruzsina eordogh Related Posts Kids will be kids, it seems. And these days, that apparently means perpetuating hoaxes on Twitter and joking about cutting themselves on social media. The hashtag #cutforbieber that trended globally on Monday is just one more sign of boredom and ennui in the digital age.First things first: No teen girl has actually cut themselves in an attempt to get Justin Bieber to stop smoking marijuana after photographs of him smoking a joint at a party were heavily circulated over the weekend. It was all a big, fat hoax – except for the part about Bieber getting high.Anatomy Of A PrankThe hashtag, created by Internet pranksters, was concocted on early Monday morning on 4chan’s /b/, a forum whose users are typically characterized as male teens.“Tweet a bunch of pics of people cutting themselves and claim we did it because bieber was smoking weed” wrote the Anonymous user (link NSFW) who started the hoax. “See if we can get some little girls to cut themselves.”Members of the forum then discussed ways to make their newly created Twitter accounts appear authentic, which included suggestions to follow each other and Justin Bieber, how to write like a teenage girl, as well as what photos to use: Don’t use old photos that “are clearly recycled… use something you have saved off here… and goog[le] reverse search it to make sure.”The stage was set, and the Twitter-o-sphere, full of actual female Bieber fans that regularly trend Justin Bieber-related hashtags, ate it up. The hashtag #cutforbeiber began trending globally around 3pm Eastern Time, reports the Daily Dot, and was still trending by early morning Tuesday. By early Monday evening, the notorious trolling group GNAA had claimedresponsibility for the prank, but that didn’t stop the hashtag from spreading to Tumblr.By 2am, #cutforbieber had been mentioned more than 350,000 times, according to Twitter analytics site Topsy (below), and various YouTube celebrities had vlogged about the trend.

Until the next teen star comes along, Doncic has four of the five in league history.“I don’t think it’s just me,” said Doncic, who turns 20 on Thursday. “A lot of players help us a lot. We have to trust everybody.”Even with Porzingis, the Mavericks will run their offense through their 6-7 point guard of the future. Twice as a teenager, Doncic had games with at least 35 points, 10 rebounds and five assists. There have been just two others in NBA history — one each for LeBron James and Kevin Durant.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte US judge bars Trump’s health insurance rule for immigrants Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. center_img Lacson backs proposal to elect president and vice president in tandem PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games PLAY LIST 02:42PH 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 Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting Oil plant explodes in Pampanga town FILE – Luka Doncic #77 of the Dallas Mavericks dribbles the ball against the Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on January 19, 2019 in Indianapolis, Indiana.
