Fianna Fáil spokesperson on Children Charlie McConalogue has welcomed the commitment from Minister for Children Frances Fitzgerald that a stand-alone Referendum on Children’s Rights will be held this year.Deputy McConalogue said: “It is a relief that Minister Fitzgerald has finally made a clear commitment that there will be a stand-alone Referendum on Children’s Rights in 2012. There has been considerable disappointment at her Government’s failure to deliver on their election promise to hold the Referendum last year.“It is important that this is a stand-alone ballot to ensure that it gets the focus and attention it deserves. We saw last October how the Government failed dismally in communicating to the public the issues involved in the two Referendums that were held alongside the Presidential election. The issue of enshrining the rights of the child in our Constitution is far too important to fall victim to a similar lapse in focus and failure of communication. “It is essential that the Government devotes the time and energy necessary to make this important Constitutional change a reality. Children in this country have waited long enough for this. The Minister must now consult closely with opposition parties and the Oireachtas Committee on Health and Children to ensure that all-party consensus can be achieved on the referendum.“I am also calling on Minister Fitzgerald to consider putting the Referendum in two questions dealing separately with the Constitutional changes needed to remove the barriers to adoption for children of married parents, and the changes needed to enhance the voice of the child in the Constitution. This will ensure that the issues at stake are clearly communicated to the electorate.”Deputy McConalogue added: “I welcome Minister Fitzgerald’s comments today and I intend to hold her to her promise that the Referendum will be held on its own this year.” McCONALOGUE WELCOMES CHILDREN’S RIGHTS REFERENDUM was last modified: February 16th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:children’s rights referendumdeputy charlie mcco
20 April 2012 “2012 will be one of the highlights of my career as I aim for qualification at the London Olympic and Paralympic Games, and I would like to thank Time and its readers for their support on my journey.” Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material ‘Global inspiration’ “They’re scientists, they’re thinkers, they’re philosophers, they’re leaders, they’re icons, they’re artists, they’re visionaries – people who are using their ideas, their visions, their actions to transform the world and have an effect on a multitude of people.” This year’s Time article says of the people on the list: “They are the people who inspire us, entertain us, challenge us, and change our world.” History maker “The Blade Runner” is listed in a section titled “Icons” in the Time Magazine list. Time managing editor Richard Stengel has said of the list, now in its ninth year: “The Time 100 is not a list of the most powerful people in the world, it’s not a list of the smartest people in the world, it’s a list of the most influential people in the world. South African athlete Oscar Pistorius, the first amputee to win a medal at an able-bodied World Championship, has been named in Time Magazine’s latest list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Time sports columnist Sean Gregory writes of him: “What’s possible in athletics? Oscar Pistorius, the double-amputee sprinter from South Africa, and his effort to compete against able-bodied runners in the 400m and 4x400m sprint events at the 2012 London Olympics, make the answer clear: absolutely anything. Pistorius said on his website: “There are some incredible names on the list from around the world, including political figures and music and film heroes, and it is a great privilege for me to have been included amongst such names. Pistorius made history at the IAAF World Championships in 2011 when he became the first amputee to win a track medal in the 4 by 400 metres relay. He has since run inside the required A-qualifying standard for the Olympic Games, but needs to achieve that mark once more to secure his place at London 2012. In February, his achievements were recognised by the Laureus Sports Awards when he received the Laureus World Sportsperson with a Disability Award.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Laura Lindsey and Peter Thomison, Ohio State University Extension CornCrop development varies tremendously across Ohio because of planting dates that range from late April to early July. According to field agronomists in some areas of the state, it looks like late-planted crops are “ rushing through development” …Unlike soybean, corn development is directly related to temperature, i.e. heat unit accumulation. Above average July temperatures (especially nighttime temperatures) have promoted rapid corn growth and development. After corn reaches the V10 stage (and most of our June plantings are near or beyond this stage), leaf collar emergence occurs at approximately one leaf every 50 GDDs.Late planted corn fields (especially those that have adequate soil moisture and good soil fertility and weed control) may appear to be “catching up” with neighboring fields planted earlier. The rapid growth of late planted corn is associated with greater vegetative growth and faster canopy closure, which will help optimize yields. However, it does not mean that the rate of development of later plantings is greater than earlier plantings. Corn growth and development have distinct meanings. Growth refers to the increase in size of an individual plant (or plant component) whereas development refers to a plant’s progression from earlier to later stages of maturity based on specific criteria (e.g., numbers of leaf collars). So, while late planted corn may appear to be “catching up in terms” in terms of vegetative growth, i.e. plant height (probably because of longer internodes), it’s not caught up from the standpoint of development (leaf collar stages).Corn plants can “adjust” their development in response to a shortened growing season. A hybrid planted after late May will mature at a faster thermal rate (i.e. require fewer heat units) than the same hybrid planted in late April or early May. One of the consequences of delayed planting is that thermal time (GDD accumulation) from the dent stage (R5) to “black layer” or physiological maturity (R6) is shortened, though this may reflect a premature maturation of the grain from cumulative effects of shorter daylengths and cooler days in early fall. Moreover, instead of a grain moisture content of about 30% at black layer, typical for normal planting dates, grain moisture at black layer for late plantings may be as high as 40%, which may require longer field drying and harvest delays. SoybeanSoybean growth and development are related to photoperiod (day/night length) as well as temperature (e.g., warmer temperatures, faster growth). This year, soybeans planted early (yes, this did occur in some areas) were slow to emerge and develop vegetative growth due to cool temperatures and wet weather. In late June, I observed soybean plants with three nodes, but were also flowering (R1 to R2 growth stage).Similar to corn, do not rely on calendar date or plant height to stage soybean plants. To stage soybean plants, my lab uses Dr. Shawn Conley’s “A Visual Guide to Soybean Growth Stages” found here: https://coolbean.info/library/documents/2017_Soybean_GrowthDev_Guide_FINAL.pdf. The reproductive stages of soybean refer to flower, pod, and seed development at specific nodes (e.g., R2 = open flower at one of the two uppermost nodes on the main stem with a fully developed leaf or R3 = pod is 3/16th inch long at one of the four uppermost nodes on the main stem with a fully developed leaf). One area of particular confusion is “open” vs “fully developed” leaf (see picture). A leaf is fully developed and the node is counted when the leaf at the node immediately above it is open. The soybean plant pictured is at the R3 growth stage.This year, staging an entire field may be challenging as some fields are extremely uneven. However, try to select areas within a field to stage that are fairly representative of the entire field (e.g., avoid areas that had standing water). Make sure to stage several plants within each area of the field. For a field to be considered at a growth stage, more than 50% of the plants must be at that particular stage (or beyond).

Moin moin!June 25, 2019In “Community”Geocacher of the Month Nominees – Add Your CommentsAugust 12, 2011In “Community” Bryan, Hydee, Nicolas and DylanSome people find much more than just cache containers when they’re introduced to geocaching. Geocachers may discover parks they never knew existed, the hidden history of their community or even the sting of stepping in poison ivy. But some geocachers wander into something else. They’re lucky enough to find the person they’ll marry.It happens. It happened to one of the founders of Geocaching.com. Bryan Roth attended a geocaching event ten years ago today. Fellow founder Jeremy Irish encouraged Bryan to attend.Bryan says, “This was the first of 41 total geocaching events that I’ve attended so far. Jeremy had suggested that I attend and I figured it’d be a great opportunity to meet some members of the local geocaching community. I really didn’t know what to expect but, of course, that day has changed my life forever.”What happened next may have been one of first cases of geo-love. The event’s name was innocent enough. It was called Washington Geocaching Potluck & Quilting Bee.Event in 2001 where Bryan and Hydee met (Hydee far left of picture)Bryan’s “will attend” log read, “I will be there (with chocolates).” Bryan says he wasn’t fishing for love with those chocolates, “Not at all. At the time, I don’t think I was even looking for a date. I was only thinking about meeting geocachers and getting more involved with the local community.”But Bryan says he soon met a geocacher named Hydee and her son Dylan. He remembers his first thought, “Yeah [my first thought was] – she looks like trouble. I was right, of course. ;)”She later told Bryan the chocolates helped cement her intuitions that he was the right person for her. She loves chocolate.Jon Stanley, Moun10Bike, hosted the event where Hydee and Bryan first met. Jon says, “That event is actually where I first met Bryan. I didn’t know that the spark had been lit at that time, but I soon found out. Hydee and her friend CameraThyme kept referring to “AFM,” which stood for “Action Figure Man.” After a while I discovered that this was their code name for Bryan. Then all became clear!”The Roth’s 10 Year Anniversary geocoinHydee’s friend CameraThyme also played a key role. Bryan says, “Thanks to CameraThyme for letting me know that Heidi was single.”Bryan and Hydee would marry. Today they’re co -hosting a “10 Years Since They Met!” event in the Seattle area with Moun10Bike and Avroair. Nearly a hundred people are expected to attend.Bryan says, “I feel so fortunate to have met Hydee and adopted Dylan. Our youngest son Nicholas is almost six and I can’t believe what a wonderful ten years it has been for all of us. A really cool aspect of it is that many of the people at the event ten years ago will be there today, so it’s really an anniversary for all of us. We’ve built some wonderful friendships along the way and we have geocaching to thank for it.”Jon says Bryan and Hydee are lucky, geo-love can be a rare commodity, “I attend a fair amount of events, though, and while I’ve heard of people meeting through them, Bryan and Hydee are the only ones I personally can name who linked up as the result of an event, let alone stayed together happily for ten years!”Still want more love?

Story Highlights The appeal, from the Rural Agricultural Development Authority (RADA), is in light of a surge in the population of the pest in the seven areas of the two parishes, which are usually affected. Onion and scallion farmers in St. Elizabeth and Manchester are being encouraged to increase monitoring of their fields for signs of infestation by the beet army worm. Onion and scallion farmers in St. Elizabeth and Manchester are being encouraged to increase monitoring of their fields for signs of infestation by the beet army worm.The appeal, from the Rural Agricultural Development Authority (RADA), is in light of a surge in the population of the pest in the seven areas of the two parishes, which are usually affected.“We ask you to monitor your field twice per week,” said Senior Plant Health/Food Safety Specialist in the Division of Training, Technology and Technical Information at RADA, Dwayne Henry.“The farmers are familiar with the term scouting so I ask them to scout their fields so they can observe the early signs of beet army worm being spread. When the egg sacs start appearing, it tells you that within one to three days the pests will be hatching and will start eating your leaves and after that, you won’t be able to manage them as effectively,” he pointed out.Mr. Henry was addressing a recent JIS Think Tank, where he provided tips on how farmers can protect their fields.More than 4,000 farmers in the two parishes are typically affected by the beet army worm.Mr. Henry further advised the farmers to rotate their crops after reaping the scallion and onion.“The beet army worm thrives on (scallion and onion) and we advise the farmers to plant crops that are not as susceptible but will yield similar economic results such as watermelon, tomato and thyme,” he noted.Biorational pesticides that are non-toxic to people and animals, and pheromone traps have also been highlighted as useful in preventing the breeding of the destructive pest in fields.“We urge farmers to select the biorational or biological pesticides because they do work but only if you catch the early signs of the pest like the larvae or the eggs. Farmers are encouraged to use the pheromone traps to monitor the beet army worm adult population. By catching these adult worms in these traps, you drown and get rid of those. A trap can catch up to 500 moths and that is every two days,” Mr. Henry further explained.He added that the management of beet army worm has to be inclusive with participation from the entire farming community. “If one farmer executes the correct farming practices and the others don’t, then you’ll limit the efficacy of what one farmer does,” he pointed out.Farmers in the two parishes are advised to contact the RADA extension officers in their area for their fields to be assessed and be provided with tailor-made solutions. “We ask you to monitor your field twice per week,” said Senior Plant Health/Food Safety Specialist in the Division of Training, Technology and Technical Information at RADA, Dwayne Henry.
Photo: State Rep. Dave Maturen (third from right) welcomed leaders of the Tribe to the House floor in the Capitol. Also Pictured: Homer A. Mandoka, Jamie Stuck, Christine Lanning, Dorie Rios and Tony Day.State Rep. Dave Maturen has authored and introduced a House resolution to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the federal recognition of the Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi.“The Potawatomi Tribe has contributed an immense amount of their time giving back to the community over the last two decades,” said Rep. Maturen, R-Vicksburg. “It’s an honor for me to welcome them to the Capitol to commemorate the anniversary of their recognition.”The Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi first received federal acknowledgement on Dec. 19, 1995. The recognition was a result of formal action by the U.S. Department of Interior and the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Among other rights, the recognition reaffirmed the Tribe as a sovereign nation with the power to determine its own form of government, define conditions for membership in the nation, and levy taxes recognized by the U.S. government.The Potawatomi name is derived from “Bodewadmi,” which means “a people of the fire” or “people who make or maintain fire.” Both interpretations refer to the role of the Potawatomi as the keeper of the council fire in an earlier alliance with other tribes in the area. The meaning of the Tribe’s name inspired the name for a now well-known Michigan entity: FireKeepers Casino.FireKeepers Casino opened in 2009, bringing commerce and industry to mid- and southwest Michigan. With more than 1,100 Tribal members, the Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi – who own the casino – have continued their commitment to bettering the state, as well as their locale. The casino recently made its sixth payment to the state of Michigan and the FireKeepers Local Revenue Sharing Board (FLRSB) since the casino’s opening in 2009. Their payments now total $73.4 million to the state, and $26.9 million to the FLRSB.“The Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi have been integral in Michigan’s comeback,” Rep. Maturen said. “They exemplify what it truly means to be a productive and selfless role model for the community.”Residents with questions about the resolution are encouraged to contact Rep. Maturen’s office by phone at 517-373-1787, or by email at [email protected]### Categories: Maturen News,News 15Dec Maturen resolution commemorates anniversary, honors local Tribe
