first_imgNew name and look for Leonard Cheshire Disability charity Leonard Cheshire has unveiled its new name and ‘look’. From autumn 2007 the charity will be known as Leonard Cheshire Disability: the new name retains its founder’s name and therefore its reputation while also making it explicit what it does.The charity’s new square logo emphasises the word ‘ability’ to demonstrate its belief that society should recognise and embrace disabled people’s abilities.Director General Bryan Dutton said: “We are one of the largest charities in the country, yet very few people today know about us. That is about to change… Our new look and feel will help us to campaign vigorously to change the way that society thinks about, and responds, to disability.

Creek returns to lead Boomers squad in final window

first_imgMitch bleeds the green and gold. He’s been doing wonderfully well in the US but for him to now be back in a position to represent Australia is awesome – LemanisVeterans Nathan Sobey and Daniel Johnson were also supposed to be on the roster, but they have been replaced by young guns Jack McVeigh and Harry Froling.One constraint coach Lemanis had to consider in preparing his team was the upcoming NBL Playoffs in Australia. Coach Lemanis had to make sure the Boomers wouldn’t feature any players who are set to see action in the NBL’s postseason games.”The NBL and clubs have been amazing in their support of the national team,” said Lemanis. “We were conscious to work with the clubs, ensuring the welfare of all players and minimizing the disruption for those players in the NBL finals. As a result, it opens up a wonderful opportunity for some new talent to shine.”Aside from McVeigh and Froling, other players who will wear the Australian colors for the first time at the continental senior level are: Tom Wilson, Emmett Naar, Isaac Humphries, Tim Coenraad, Daniel Grida, Jock Landale, Mangok Mathiang and Jarrad Weeks.Wilson, Naar and Humphries have played at the U17 and U19 World Cups before, but the final Asian Qualifiers window will mark their debut on the senior stage.”To give these guys exposure at an international level is exciting for them and it’s exciting for us as a coaching staff,” added Lemanis. “It is important for the future of our sport that we continue to develop and grow as broad a base as possible. We want the cupboard to remained stocked, so to speak. Giving this 12 the opportunity to experience this level of play is important.” ICYMI | There have been two changes made to the 🇦🇺 Boomers team for the @fibawc sixth window with @jackmctrey and @harryfroling coming in for Nathan Sobey and Daniel Johnson who come out of the team due to international contract opportunities! #GoBoomers #FIBAWCA post shared by Basketball Australia (@basketballaus) on Feb 17, 2019 at 3:48am PSTA couple of the players on Lemanis’s team have come from their respective club teams in Europe – Landale and Mathiang – while Humphries is coming from his campaign in the NBA G-League.Australia have already successfully qualified for the World Cup later this year in China, but these last two fixtures are important in terms of helping maximize their potential for favorable seeding at the World Cup. Coach Lemanis is also dead serious about rounding up their Asian Qualifiers campaign on a strong note.”The fact that we have qualified helps, but we are still there to win and of course we want to represent Australian basketball on the world stage the right way,” he said.

Leicester 3 points away from title after Dawson foils Spurs

first_imgMyhill savesThe other significant alteration saw Boaz Myhill coming in for goalkeeper Ben Foster, who also had an ankle problem, and the 33-year-old Welshman was called into immediate action.In the opening minutes, he was at a full-stretch dive to turn a Christian Eriksen free-kick around for a corner. Moments later, he did exceptionally well to palm a Harry Kane effort on to the post. And not long afterwards Myhill could only watch as an effort from Eriksen clipped the top of the crossbar.The breakthrough the home crowd desperately required eventually came with 12 minutes left in the first half.Eriksen whipped in a superb free-kick which caused panic in the Albion defence and the falling Dawson, who had been tussling with Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen, inadvertently diverted the ball into his own net and through the legs of the unfortunate Myhill.Spurs should really have doubled their lead when a signature sweeping move in the 57th minute saw Ali releasing Eriksen into space.The Dane then fed Erik Lamela, whose effort bounced off the post, the third time Tottenham had hit the woodwork.Yet Tottenham, who had appeals for a second-half penalty rejected when Jonny Evans appeared to handle an Eriksen delivery, ended up ruing all their missed chances.They had plenty of warnings, with lone Albion striker Salomon Rondon heading wide and also forcing a one-handed save from Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.Then, from a Craig Gardner corner, right-back Dawson beat Lloris in the air to head home.Spurs midfielder Eric Dier was injured in the process and could be another absentee from the run-in.By the time Tottenham visit Chelsea on Monday, the Premier League race could be over.The only consolation for Spurs is that they are currently five points in front of Arsenal and in line to finish above their north London rivals for the first time since the 1994/95 season. Monday resultSpurs 1 West Brom 1LEICESTER’s final EPL games:May 1 – vs Man UnitedMay 7 – vs EvertonMay 15 – vs Chelsea.Tottenham Hotspur’s prospects of catching Leicester City in a thrilling Premier League title race suffered a major blow as they dropped two points in a frustrating 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion at White Hart Lane on Monday.Albion defender Craig Dawson made amends for his 33rd-minute own-goal by heading home an equaliser 17 minutes from time that has huge ramifications for the destiny of this season’s English title.Leicester are seven points clear of Spurs with three matches remaining and if they beat Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday, they will become English football champions for the first time, regardless of anything else Tottenham do this season.To make matters worse for Spurs, they could be missing one of their key players in the closing stages of the season after video footage emerged on Twitter which showed Dele Alli appearing to punch Albion midfielder Claudio Yacob in the stomach during the first half.The incident was missed by the referee Mike Jones and England’s governing Football Association are now likely to review the incident.If Alli, the newly-crowned Professional Footballers Association’ Young Player of the Year is punished retrospectively, he could be banned from the remainder of north London club Tottenham’s campaign.On Sunday, Leicester consolidated their position at the top of the Premier League with a 4-0 home thumping of Swansea.That result meant there was no margin of error for Tottenham.Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino fielded the same side that overwhelmed Stoke City 4-0 a week earlier, while Albion were forced into making changes.Saido Berahino, whom Tottenham tried but failed to sign in pre-season, was removed from the starting line-up having aggravated an ankle injury against Arsenal last Thursday.

Liverpool, Chelsea clash in Super Cup as Frappart makes history

first_img– ‘Smart decision’ –Lampard himself played in two Super Cup defeats as a Chelsea player in the early part of this decade, and he knows how big a lift it would be for his side to come out on top in Turkey.A transfer ban has prevented him from strengthening over the summer and he has instead given a chance to youth, with Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount — aged 21 and 20 respectively — both hoping to keep their places after starting at the weekend.“I’ll pick the best team to win the game, regardless of age. Mason Mount deserved his chance on absolute merit as opposed to age,” Lampard said.“I will have no fears to play young players, it’s important at a club like Chelsea that we do that, but they need to deserve the chance.”N’Golo Kante is a fitness doubt after a summer plagued by problems, while Lampard admitted that neither Willian nor Antonio Rudiger is ready to start.Meanwhile, recent signing Adrian will be in goal for Liverpool in the absence of first-choice ‘keeper Alisson Becker, who is out with a calf injury.It will all be watched over by Frappart, the 35-year-old Frenchwoman who is no stranger to the spotlight, and her two assistants, compatriot Manuela Nicolosi and Ireland’s Michelle O’Neill.Frappart took charge of the women’s World Cup final last month and earlier this year she became the first woman to referee a men’s match in Ligue 1 in her home country. Little wonder she insisted that “nothing changes” for her in this game.“It’s great news, I’m very pleased to be a part of this moment in history which is very much due,” said Lampard.Klopp added: “I am happy that we can be part of a historic moment. It’s a very smart decision to have a woman referee a very, very important game.”Share on: WhatsApp FILE PHOTO: LiverpoolIstanbul, Turkey | AFP | Liverpool and Chelsea are eyeing some early-season silverware as the Premier League rivals meet in the UEFA Super Cup in Istanbul on Wednesday in what will be the first major men’s European encounter to be refereed by a woman, with France’s Stephanie Frappart taking charge.Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have a settled look and are hoping momentum will carry them through this campaign on the back of their victory in the Champions League final in June, a triumph which ended a seven-year trophy drought.In contrast, Chelsea have lost star man Eden Hazard since winning the Europa League and replaced the departed Maurizio Sarri with the relatively inexperienced Frank Lampard in the dugout.Lampard’s managerial career at the club he served with such distinction as a player began with a 4-0 humbling at the hands of Manchester United on Sunday.It is little wonder that Liverpool are favourites to win the Super Cup for the fourth time in Wednesday’s match, at the home of Besiktas on the European side of the Bosphorus, which kicks off at 1900 GMT.Their last victory in the one-off showpiece came in 2005, just after their stunning win over AC Milan to win the Champions League in Istanbul.– Lampard praised –“We won one competition last year, that’s all. This team is built for being successful and that is what we try to do. Tomorrow (Wednesday) night is another chance for us,” insisted Klopp.However, the German warned his team to be wary of a new-look Chelsea, whose performance against United was generally accepted to be far better than the final result suggested.“If people really think that Chelsea is not a real challenge then I can’t help these people,” Klopp said.“They are really strong and young and fresh, and everything is exciting in the moment because Frank is there, new, the club legend.“It will be really interesting, and for us it’s a really important game.”last_img read more

Ohio hemp laws have been proposed

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Peggy Kirk Hall and Ellen Essman, Ohio State University Extension Agricultural & Resource Law ProgramOhio’s newly created hemp program is one step further toward getting off the ground. On Oct. 9, the Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) released its anxiously awaited proposal of the rules that will regulate hemp production in Ohio. ODA seeks public comments on the proposed regulations until Oct. 30, 2019.There are two parts to the rules package: one rule for hemp cultivation and another for hemp processing. Here’s an overview of the components of each rule:Hemp cultivationThe first rule addresses the “cultivation” of hemp, which means “to plant, water, grow, fertilize, till or harvest a plant or crop.” Cultivating also includes “possessing or storing a plant or cop on a premises where the plant was cultivated until transported to the first point of sale.” The proposal lays out the following regulatory process for those who wish to cultivate hemp in Ohio. Cultivation licensesAnyone who wants to grow hemp must receive a hemp cultivation license from the ODA. Licenses are valid for three years. To obtain a license, the would-be hemp cultivator must submit an application during the application window, which will be between Nov. 1 and March 31. The application requires the applicant to provide personal information about the applicant, and if the applicant is a business, information about who is authorized to sign on behalf of the business, who will be primarily responsible for hemp operations and the identity of those having a financial interest greater than ten percent in the entity. The cultivation license application will also seek information about each location where hemp will be grown, including the GPS coordinates, physical address, number of outdoor acres or indoor square footage, and maps of each field, greenhouse, building or storage facility where hemp will grow or be stored. Cultivators must pay a license application fee of $100, and once licensed, an additional license fee of $500 for each growing location, which the rule defines as “a contiguous land area or single building in which hemp is grown or planned to be grown.” All applicants and anyone with a controlling interest in the hemp cultivation business must also submit to a criminal records check by the bureau of criminal identification and investigation. Land use restrictionsThe proposed rules state that a licensed hemp cultivator shall not:Plant or grow cannabis that is not hemp.Plant or grow hemp on any site not approved by the ODA.Plant, grow, handle or store hemp in or within 100 feet of a residential structure or 500 feet of a school or public park, unless for approved research.Co-mingle hemp with other crops without prior approval from ODA.Plant or grow hemp outdoors on less than one-quarter acre, indoors on less than 1,000 square feet, or in a quantity of less than 1,000 plants without prior approval from ODA.Plant or grow hemp within half a mile of a parcel licensed for medical marijuana cultivation.Plant or grow hemp on property that the license holder does not own or lease. Hemp harvestingLicensed growers would be required to submit a report to ODA at least 15 days before their intended harvest date and pay a pre-harvest sample fee of $150. ODA then has to sample the hemp for THC content, and only if approved can a cultivator harvest the crop, which in most cases must occur within 15 days after the sample is taken. Failing to harvest within the 15-day window might require a secondary sampling and sampling fee. A cultivator would be required to have a hemp release form from ODA before moving any harvested materials beyond the storage facility. Random samplingThe proposed rules also allow for random sampling of hemp by ODA and provide details on how ODA will conduct the sampling and charge sampling fees. Any cultivator is subject to random sampling in each location where hemp has been cultivated. ODA will report testing results that exceed 0.3 THC to the cultivator, who may request a second sample. A cultivator must follow procedures for destroying any leaf, seed, or floral material from plants that exceed 0.3 THC and any material that was co-mingled with the 0.3 THC materials, but may harvest bare hemp stalks for fiber. Destruction of hempUnder the proposed regulations, a license holder must submit a destruction report before destroying hemp and ODA must be present to witness the destruction. The proposed rules also authorize ODA to destroy a crop that was ordered destroyed, abandoned, or otherwise not harvested and assess the costs against the licensee. Reporting and recordkeepingRecords are also important in the proposed rules. Licensed cultivators must submit a planting report on an ODA form for each growing location by July 1 or within 15 days of planting or replanting, which shall include the crop’s location, number of acres or square footage, variety name, and primary intended use. The rule would also require licensees to submit a completed production report by December 31 of each year. A licensee that fails to submit the required reports would be subject to penalties and fines. Cultivators must maintain planting, harvest, destruction and production reports for three years. Control of volunteer plantsA licensee must scout and monitor unused fields for volunteer hemp plants and destroy the plants for a period of three years past the last date of reported planting. Failing to do so can result in enforcement action or destruction of the plants by ODA with costs assessed to the licensee. Pesticide and fertilizer useThe laws and rules that apply to other crops will also apply to hemp, except that when using a pesticide on a site where hemp will be planted, the cultivator must comply with the longest of any planting restriction interval on the product label. ODA may perform pesticide testing randomly, and any hemp seeds, plants and materials that exceed federal pesticide residue tolerances will be subject to forfeiture or destruction without compensation. Prohibited varietiesThe proposed rule states that licensed cultivators cannot use any part of a hemp plant that ODA has listed as a prohibited variety of hemp on its website. Clone and seed productionSpecial rules apply to hemp cultivators who plan to produce clones, cuttings, propagules, and seed for propagation purposes. The cultivator can only sell the seeds or plants to other licensed cultivators and must maintain records on the variety, strain and certificate of analysis for the “mother plants.” The licensee need not submit a harvest report, but must keep sales records for three years of the purchaser, date of sale, and variety and number of plants or seeds purchased. Cultivation researchUniversities may research hemp cultivation without a license but private and non-profit entities that want to conduct research must have a cultivation license. Cultivation research licensees would be exempt from many parts of the proposed rules, but must not sell or transfer any part of the plants and must destroy the plants when the research ends. EnforcementThe proposed rule grants authority to the ODA to deny, suspend or revoke cultivation licenses for those who’ve provide false or misleading information, haven’t completed a background check, plead guilty to a felony relating to controlled substances within the past 10 years, or violated the hemp laws and rules three or more times in a five-year period. Hemp processingThe proposed rules package by ODA also addresses processing, which the rule defines as “converting hemp into a hemp product” but does not include on-farm drying or dehydrating of raw hemp materials by a licensed hemp cultivator for sale directly to a licensed hemp processor. Because of this definition, many farmers who want only to grow and dry hemp would need only a cultivation license. Growers who want to process their licensed hemp into CBD oil or other products, however, must also obtain a processing license. The processing rules follow a similar pattern to their cultivation counterpart, as follows. Processing licensesIn addition to submitting the same personal, business and location information as a cultivation license requires, a hemp processing license application must list the types of hemp products that the processor plans to produce. An “extraction operational plan” including safety measures and guidelines is required for processors who want to extract CBD from hemp to produce their product, and an applicant must indicate compliance with all building, fire, safety and zoning requirements. The amount of the license fee depends on what part of the hemp plant the processor plans to process. Processing raw hemp fiber, for example, requires a $500 license fee for each processing site, whereas processing the raw floral component of hemp requires a $3000 fee for each site. Like the cultivation license, a processing license is valid for three years. Applicants and those with a controlling interest in the business must submit to a background check. Land use restrictionsThe proposed regulations would prevent a licensed processor from:Processing or storing any cannabis that is not hemp.Processing or storing hemp or hemp products on any site not approved by ODA.Processing, handling, or storing hemp or hemp products in or adjacent to a personal residence or in any structure used for residential use or on land zoned for residential use.Processing hemp within 500 feet of a school or public park, except for approved research. Financial responsibilityA licensed processor must meet standards of financial responsibility, which require having current assets at least $10,000 or five percent of the total purchase of raw hemp materials in the previous calendar year, whichever is greater, and possessing a surety bond. Inspection and samplingAs with cultivation licensees, hemp processing licensees would be subject to inspection and sampling by ODA under the proposed rule. Food safety regulationsThe proposed rule requires hemp processes to comply with federal and state food safety regulations. Sources and extraction of cannabinoids (CBD)A processor who wants to extract or sell CBD products must obtain the materials from a licensed or approved cultivator or processor in Ohio or another state with hemp cultivation licenses. The regulation outlines components of the extraction operational plan that a processor must submit with the processing application, as well as acceptable extraction methods and required training. Product testingA hemp processor must test hemp products at an accredited testing laboratory before selling the products. The proposed rule describes the testing procedures, which address microbial contaminants, cannabinoid potency, mycotoxins, heavy metals, pesticide and fertilizer residue and residual solvents. There are testing exemptions, however, for hemp used exclusively for fiber, derived exclusively from hemp seed and hemp extracts. The testing laboratory must create a certificate of analysis for each batch or lot of the tested hemp product. Processor waste disposalUnder the proposed rule, a licensed processor must follow procedures for proper disposal of hemp byproducts and waste and must maintain disposal records. Product labelingLabeling requirements are also proposed in the rule. A processor must label all hemp products except for those made exclusively from hemp fiber as outlined in the rule and in compliance with federal law and other existing Ohio regulations for standards of identify and food coloring. RecordkeepingAs we’d expect, the proposal states that hemp processors must maintain records for five years that relate to the purchase of raw, unprocessed plant materials, the purchase or use of extracted cannabinoids, and the extraction process. Prohibited productsFinally, the proposed rules include a list of hemp products that cannot be offered for sale, which includes hemp products with over 0.3 percent THC by dry weight basis, hemp products which laboratory testing determines do not meet standards of identity or that exceed the amount of mytoxins, heavy metals, or pesticides allowed, and any hemp products produced illegally. What’s next for the hemp rules?Keep in mind that these rules are not yet set in stone; they are a simply a proposal for hemp licensing rules in Ohio. Those interested in cultivating or processing hemp in the future should read the draft rules carefully. Anyone can submit comments on the proposed rules. Your comments could affect what the final hemp rules require for hemp cultivators and processors. After ODA reviews all comments, it will issue its final hemp licensing regulations.Federal law requires that after Ohio finalizes its rules, ODA must submit them to the USDA for approval. That approval won’t occur, however, until USDA completes its own hemp regulations, which are due out in proposal form any day now. Ohio’s rules will become effective once USDA approves them, hopefully in time for the 2020 planting season.last_img read more

#Feb14: In Bahrain, Day of Rage Enters Second Day

first_imgTags:#Facebook#Government#international#politics#web Pearl photo by Harold Ladeus | other sources: Al Jazeera, GVO The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos The “Day of Rage” washed over the Gulf nation of Bahrain yesterday. It has not abated. With two people killed by the police even those who weren’t big supporters are starting to feel the original protesters’ rage. Fadhel Ali Almatrook was killed by a short-range shotgun blast by a police officer. The other’s name and situation are not yet known, but Bahrain’s leader, Sheikh Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa, apologized for “the death of our two sons.”In addition to the deaths, 200 protesters were arrested in the crackdown. A video on YouTube showing what seems to be police firing on protesters has been blocked. The ruling family in Bahrain is Sunni but the majority of the people are Shi’a, though many of the protesters insist the difference in religious affiliation is not the primary consideration or motivation. However, al-Wefaq, the main Sunni-based opposition political party, withdrew from participation in the government in protest of the deaths. If Tahrir Square was ground central for the Egyptian protesters, the Pearl Roundabout in Manama serves that role in Bahrain. The hashtag #feb14 is being used by protesters and those following the protests in Bahrain and a Facebook profile, 14th February 2011 Revolution Day is tracking events.
