Samples needed for surveillance program

first_imgBatesville, In. — The DNR is asking deer hunters for help with a disease surveillance program in Franklin and Fayette counties.State biologists are sampling deer harvested from portions of those two counties for bovine tuberculosis. After a slow start to the deer firearms season, however, the program is running behind. Biologists have collected just 16 percent of the samples needed to reach their surveillance goal, largely because of weather.Firearms season started for deer this past Saturday and runs through Dec. 3. Opening weekend was affected by thunderstorms and warm temperatures, which resulted in a lower harvest compared to previous opening weekends.For example, the combined two-day first-weekend harvest in Franklin and Fayette counties was down about 60 percent from 2016.The DNR is asking those who hunt in the surveillance zone to help it collect samples. The preference is for bucks that are 2 years old or older, but all deer will be accepted for testing. The DNR hopes to sample between 500 and 1,200 deer, depending on age.The surveillance zone is the area south of State Road 44 and west of State Road 1 in Fayette County, and in the northwest portion of Franklin County, west of Brookville Lake. See a map at involves collecting and testing lymph nodes from the head and neck of deer harvested by hunters and voluntarily submitted for evaluation.Hunters can bring their deer to a biological check station at the Whitewater Canal State Historic Site maintenance facility in Metamora, 19083 Clayborn St., and to Mustin’s Processing in Connersville, or Hunters Choice in Brookville.Hunters who submit a deer for testing will be entered into a drawing for 1 of 10 authorizations to take an additional buck from anywhere in Indiana (with landowner permission) during the 2018-2019 deer hunting season. Hunters who bring the DNR a buck at least 2 years old will receive 10 entries into the drawing. Hunters who bring in does that are at least 2 years old will receive three entries into the drawing. Hunters who bring in yearlings will receive one entry into the drawing. Entries are cumulative — hunters who bring in multiple deer will have an even better chance of winning.DNR will continue to collect samples from deer harvested within this “bTB” surveillance zone through Jan. 7 (excluding Thanksgiving and several days around Christmas).last_img read more

The Argentine is also a free agent and gave an interview with El Pais at the weekend confessing he was open to jobs in England, Italy, Spain, Germany and France. This would certainly be a boost for Christian Eriksen, who played 255 games under Pochettino at Spurs, contributing 58 goals and 75 assists. Eriksen’s arrival in January is one of the reasons behind Conte’s irritation with the Inter directors, bringing in a player for over €20m who did not fit his tactical set-up. Conte has used Eriksen sparingly since the restart, at times even preferring to use midfielders out of position such as Marcelo Brozovic, Borja Valero or Nicolò Barella, in his trequartista role behind the strikers. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Reports are growing rapidly that Antonio Conte’s furious outburst has created an irreparable split at Inter, with Max Allegri or Mauricio Pochettino the alternative options. Conte should’ve been celebrating the 2-0 victory away to Atalanta on Saturday evening, which secured second place on 82 points, equalling the 2009-10 tally under Jose Mourinho. Instead, he used his post-match interviews to rail against the club hierarchy, claiming they gave him and the team “zero protection” from media attacks and would not be put in that position again. There was silence from the Nerazzurri and a summit is expected between Conte and director Beppe Marotta on Monday. Reports are growing rapidly on Sky Sport Italia, Sport Mediaset, La Gazzetta dello Sport, Tuttosport and Corriere dello Sport that the damage is irreparable. Although a dismissal is unlikely, especially with his €12m per season salary, it is entirely plausible that Inter and Conte will agree to terminate the contract by mutual consent after just one season. As for the alternatives, Plan B is widely believed to be Allegri, who after all was brought in by Marotta at Juventus when Conte suddenly quit two days into pre-season training in 2014.Advertisementlast_img read more


Infantino: FIFA will never again allow corruption in football

Infantino, a lawyer by training, claimed his reforms introduced since his first election in 2016, were the reason why FIFA has been able to release $1.5 billion (1.3 billion euros) in grants and loans to help federations to face the consequences of the pandemic. “We have the money (to help) because in the new FIFA, the money doesn’t disappear,” he said. “We will know exactly where (the money) goes, and why it goes there.

Infantino said at the opening of the 70th FIFA Congress held by videoconference with delegates from 211 member federations that he believed he had restored the integrity of the body after a wave of scandals. “We will never again have corruption in football… We have excluded it and we will not let it come back,” promised a bullish Infantino who also referenced his predecessor Sepp Blatter, ousted in 2015. “FIFA became victim to corrupt officials — that’s not what I say, that’s what courts say all over the world, and FIFA is still suffering from that. “In 2015 FIFA was toxic, was pronounced dead. An organisation that had served itself from football, had used football, instead of serving football.” Infantino, in charge of world football’s governing body since 2016, is the subject of an investigation over suspected collusion between him and Swiss attorney general Michael Lauber, who resigned in July over his handling of a corruption investigation targeting FIFA. “So why was I meeting the Swiss attorney general? Because it was my duty as FIFA president because I wanted to liberate FIFA from those old, toxic values.”Advertisementcenter_img Loading… last_img read more

Swansea complete Man Utd double

first_img United manager Louis van Gaal had claimed his side were the best in the top flight on current form after losing only once in 19 games in all competitions but performances have rarely matched results and this will do little for their ambitions of finishing in the top four. Swansea started by changing their system with a diamond matching United’s as Wayne Rooney again operated up front for the visitors with Robin van Persie replacing the misfiring Radamel Falcao following the FA Cup victory at Preston. United were nearly the architects of their own downfall inside five minutes when Marcos Rojo’s poor pass set up Gylfi Sigurdsson’s blocked shot and a corner from which Swansea almost profited. Sigurdsson sent the ball in and Gomis lost his marker Paddy McNair to power a header which Herrera hacked off the line. Gomis put another header over after bar and Swansea were dangerous in attack but allowing Angel di Maria too much space to run into down the left flank. And when Di Maria’s corner evaded Lukasz Fabianski in the Swansea goal Van Persie collected at an acute angle to hammer a shot against the crossbar. A hugely enjoyable encounter was swinging from end to end and Gomis slipped Phil Jones to set up a shooting opportunity for Wayne Routledge which David de Gea safely gathered. But it was United who seized the lead when some fine approach play ended with Rooney finding Di Maria and the Argentina international set up Herrera’s fifth United goal, and his second in as many games, with a precise finish into the corner. Press Association Swansea’s reply, however, was both emphatic and instant as Shelvey crossed from the left and Ki, just as he had done at Old Trafford in August, scored by getting across Luke Shaw and sweeping the ball home. Ki went close to a second soon after half-time when he timed his run superbly onto another Shelvey cross and de Gea spread himself well to make the save. Van Gaal’s response to try and achieve dominance was to put on fresh legs at full-back, Ashley Young replacing Shaw after Antonio Valencia had been introduced at half-time for McNair. United were enjoying the majority of possession with van Persie adding to a couple of wayward first-half efforts by smashing into the side netting on his more favoured left foot. Rojo headed over a Di Maria corner and United were firmly in the ascendancy when Rooney lifted a ball over the top of the Swansea defence but Van Persie was only able to scuff his shot under pressure. Swansea were clinging on but they relieved the pressure and struck against the run of play after 73 minutes when Shelvey’s powerful strike beat de Gea with the aid of a deflection off Gomis. The Frenchman brought another save from de Gea in the final exchanges as United ran out of ideas and were unable to pull off a late rescue act. The Welsh club had won 2-1 at Old Trafford on the opening day of the season but a repeat looked unlikely when Ander Herrera fired United into a 28th-minute lead. But Ki Sung-yueng equalised within two minutes and Jonjo Shelvey’s 73rd minute strike – which took a crucial deflection off team-mate Bafetimbi Gomis – gave Swansea only a second win in eight Barclays Premier League attempts as they prevailed 2-1. Swansea completed their first-ever league double over Manchester United to dent the Red Devils’ hopes of finishing in the Champions League places.last_img read more

GKC encouraging new entrants

first_imgTHE Guyana Karate College (GKC) has reopened its doors to new entrants of the sport ahead of the Christmas vacation period of the academic semester.According to vice-president of the GKC, Master Jeffrey Wong, the club is looking to enhance its youth cadre as it prepares for the International Karate Diagaku World Cup next year in Barbados.“What we saw is that a lot of our junior Karatekas have graduated to the senior ranks and the club is expanding. What we have also found is that we are a little bit short on the junior end and it’s an area we have always been strong in.”Master Wong dismissed the common notion that the sport is violent, adding that it is quite the opposite.“There are some parents who have approached me and said they don’t want their children to join karate because they think it’s violent. It isn’t so,” he stated.Master Wong added, “it’s about controlling your emotions and your actions so that you don’t become violent, but rather learn how to deal with various situations that could have violent outcomes.”Wong stated that Beginners classes are for ages five to sixteen and take place from 16:15hrs – 17:15hrs on Mondays and Wednesdays while Friday’s class begins at 17:00hrsThere are also adult classes on Tuesdays from 18:00hrs–19:30hrs with classes on Thursday and Friday from 18:30hrs – 19:30hrs.Registration is $3000 with membership fees set at $3000 per month.last_img read more
