Drier Times

first_imgDrier than normal conditions returned to most of Georgia in September, due primarily to the unusually quiet tropics this year. Farmers used the drier weather to catch up on field work after the state’s extremely wet summer. However, dry conditions hampered the maturation of some soybean pods and reduced production of Bermudagrass hay. Many crops continue to be a week or two behind in development due to the cool and wet conditions that occurred in the past few months. Despite dry conditions across the state, the southeastern corner was still fairly wet. Observers with the National Weather Service stations reported their highest monthly rainfall total in Brunswick with 10.89 inches (5.13 inches above normal). They saw the lowest total rainfall in Augusta, where only 1.17 inches fell (2.10 inches below normal). Savannah received 1.78 inches (2.8 inches below normal); Athens received 2.42 inches (1.52 below normal); Columbus received 1.17 inches (1.89 below normal); Alma received 2.12 inches (1.52 below normal); Atlanta received 2.74 inches (1.73 below normal); and Macon received 1.77 inches (1.82 below normal). Community Collaborative Rain Hail and Snow Network observers recorded the highest daily rainfall total near Darien in McIntosh County with 4.59 inches on September 26. Most of that fell in a little over two hours. An observer on Jekyll Island in Glynn County reported 3.67 inches on September 24. The highest monthly total rainfall reported by network observers was 12.08 inches, observed on St. Simons in Glynn County, followed by 10.11 inches measured on Jekyll Island in the same county. There were no precipitation records observed in Georgia in September. There were no temperature records broken either, but Alma tied a record high temperature on September 5, when the high temperature of 95 F equaled that in 1999. Most of the state saw near average temperatures through out the month. The monthly average temperature in Atlanta was 74.4 degrees F (0.9 degrees above normal); in Athens the average was 73.2 degrees (0.1 below normal); in Columbus it was 77.9 degrees (1.3 above normal); in Macon it was 74.4 degrees (0.6 below normal); in Savannah it was 77.6 degrees (0.7 above normal); in Brunswick it was 78.5 degrees (0.4 above normal); in Alma it was 77.4 degrees (0.3 above normal); and in Augusta it was 74.5 (0.1 below normal). Severe weather was reported on six days in September. All were isolated occurrences of wind damage to trees. A fish kill of approximately 500 striped bass was observed on Hartwell Lake in early September. This was attributed in part to the release of water from Hartwell Dam by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to maintain lake levels for adequate flood protection after the extremely wet conditions in the past few months. It also helped to maintain trout habitat downstream by providing cool water to those areas. The stocking rate for striped bass was estimated to be about seven striped bass per acre, or 400,000 fish for the reservoir, but the exact population is not known.last_img read more

‘Haere Ra’, Mr Ian Milne san

first_imgA fitting tribute to a mighty fine and soon to be retired ANZAC ambassador and mate. By Julian Buckmaster – @JulianTFA“You can’t kill weeds!”As with most international sporting events, the great occasion of international elite competition affords a great opportunity for respective cultures, creeds and flags and foes to converge in a mutually friendly and familiar setting and embrace.This was no more evident than at the official 2016 Trans Tasman welcome ceremony and function held in Auckland overnight. The number of pleasantries and cultural exchanges marked symbolically, and at times beautifully, the great occasion of this year’s series featuring the popular and very progressive inclusion of Japan into the Australasian biennial battle. Of particular highlight and note was the traditional Maori greeting from the local Maori elders and Polynesian strains and beats from the local house band. But in amongst the speeches and brilliant renditions of Hakas, ceremonial greetings’ and, well, some more questionable contemporary cultural renditions, was a truly stirring tribute. A tribute to a man of fine repute and a true stalwart of the sport in New Zealand and abroad.This one will live long in the memory of this fine ambassador and his equally remarkable wife, Soyra. This quiet, retiring type would probably prefer it done any other way than a full-blown presentation in front a large audience, such is his humble and modest nature. That is, to quietly retire in a more subdued and discrete fashion.But to everyone present and to all in the international community that know of the vast contributions of both he and his wife, Soyra, there could be nor more fitting opportunity and occasion. â€œAgain, you don’t in my opinion do this for what you get out of it and to be appreciated in front of your peers and countries – who are like family to us all, is a great honour and privilege” he said.“I was blown away that I received the plaque but inside the box was amazing; a blessed and rather large piece of Maori greenstone mere [traditional Maori weapon].“I will certainly treasure this as I will the memory of reception in front of the marvellous community we have come to know and love.”‘Pounamu’, the Maori word for greenstone derives from New Zealand’s South Island – some of them have a balance in them and a warmth which is the tradition for when they are blessed.  Affectionately known as “Milney” and widely regarded in New Zealand, Australia and across the world for his work as a volunteer at events including Trans-Tasman’s, Touch World Cup’s, some Pacific Nations events, he will, as they, be greatly missed.Both CEOs of Touch Football Australian and Touch New Zealand [Joe Sprangers], were effusive in their praise of the great man and his long reputation and dedication. “On behalf of the Touch Football Australia community this is outstanding recognition of Ian and Soyra, two marvellous supporters and contributors to touch Football across both sides of the Tasman,” Maguire said following Sprangers’ moving tribute and presentation to Ian.“They are such dedicated volunteers and simply amazing people and a joy to work with along with Joe and the Touch New Zealand team.”And, as they also say, behind every great man…and in front and to the side of Ian is as always his lovely and equally regarded wife, Soyra. From the global sport perspective, Bill Ker had it right on the money: “In the 46-member nations that form the federation, volunteers are the backbone of the sport and give their time and skills to each member nation in a willing manner,” he said. “None more so than Ian from New Zealand who after 20 years [NZ for the last 10], assisting NZ in a volunteer capacity with their tournament control has retired leaving a huge void left by Ian and will be temporarily filled by those whom he has up-skilled during his many roles working for New Zealand.But fittingly, the final word goes to Soyra who has been side-by-side with Ian with his long and distinguished volunteer roles.“Just because he is retiring, I’m not!” Soyra emphatically said at the announcement of Ian’s pending retirement.“So, we better find a way for him to be involved as I will still be going.  â€œHaving said that he will always want to be involved in some fashion…you can’t kill weeds!” Nor would you think the weeds would grow under this man’s feet for too long.Related LinksThanks Ian & Soyra!last_img read more

10 months agoChelsea boss Sarri: I won’t argue against our contract policy

first_imgTagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Chelsea boss Sarri: I won’t argue against our contract policyby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea boss Maurizio Sarri says there’s little shifting the club’s contract policy for players over 30 years of age.Sarri pledged to respect the stance of Chelsea’s board when it comes to limiting the length of contracts offered to their older players.When asked if he agrees with that blanket policy, he said: “Oh, it depends. It depends on the single situation I think.”It’s a rule and so we have to respect that, I think.”As you know very well the big problem is the duration of the new contracts. Because, as you know, over 30 years the club offers only one year to renew.”And for a player of 31, it’s a big problem to sign a new contract for only one year. So the problem is only this, I think.” last_img read more

Pellegrini Arnautovic wont refuse to play for West Ham

first_imgWest Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini doubts Marko Arnautovic will attempt to force through a move to China in a similar manner to that of Dmitri PayetChinese Super League champions Shanghai SIPG have reportedly had their £35m bid for Arnautovic turned down by West Ham.Despite the Austrian forward’s desire for the transfer to East Asia to go ahead, West Ham are unwilling to part with their top scorer.This has caused comparisons to be made between Arnautovic’s current predicament to that of Payet two years ago, who forced a move to Marseille by going on strike.Speaking ahead to this Saturday’s trip to Bournemouth, however, Pellegrini expects Arnautovic to remain professional despite the ongoing uncertainty over his future.“How is his mood? When you have such a high offer everyone wants to leave,” said Pellegrini, according to Sky Sports.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“He has a contract here, we know what will happen about that in the coming days.“Everyone is talking about his future. He knows what is the best option for him. We will see what happens between the clubs.”“I don’t think he will refuse to play.”Amid interest from Valencia, Pellegrini hopes to retain Mexican striker Javier Hernandez despite his struggles to hold on to a regular starting spot under the Chilean this season.“There are so many rumours about players coming and going from West Ham,” said Pellegrini.“Javier is part of the squad, he, unfortunately, has had two long injuries but he will continue to be an important player to us.”last_img read more

TCIG Continues to Recogniza its Heroes During Social Workers Month – March

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 01 Apr 2015 – As the Department of Social Development and Gender Affairs, Ministry of Environment and Home Affairs, continues to recognize Social Work Month 2015, we celebrate the dedicated and committed Social Workers for the roles they have played in the Turks and Caicos Islands in “Paving the way for change”.The question was asked these serving officers “Why social work?” It is amazing to see that the most common factor is the desire to help others and bring about change in the communities they live and serve.These are the Social Workers of the Turks and Caicos Islands:Nicole WintSocial Worker, South CaicosInline images 2I believe it was Confucius who said “If you choose a job you love, you will never have to work a day in your life.” This is one philosophy that had stuck with me throughout my Social Work Career. The one thing I have always known I would like to do with my life is to assist others and intercede on their behalf.I was the youngest one in my class in College. People habitually asked me what I knew about Social Work being so young. Sometimes I would ask myself the same question but after realizing that my zeal to mediate on the behalf of others would not diminish, I knew I had chosen the right path.Having spent the last eight years as a professional Social Worker, I realize more each day that I am fulfilling my purpose. I am a better person due to my profession. I have learned how to be humble and put the needs of others before my own. Frankly, I would not have it any other way.Olivia DayeSenior Social Worker, ProvidencialesInline images 3I entered the Social Work profession out of a genuine desire to improve the lives of others. Making a difference in someone’s life, no matter how small or how great has always been important to me. As a child growing up, my first career choice was to become a medical doctor and as such, I was mentored by one. I observed my mentor giving of herself to the children of a Children’s Home that was located in close proximity to where she had her private practice. She got so involved to the point where she adopted two of the children from the home.My parents also were highly involved in the nurturing of other children and caring for persons in need within our community. The influence of these positive role models in my life inspired me to make a difference in the lives of others. Working with different personalities of varying background on a day-to day basis has proven to be challenging and sometimes overwhelming but no doubt rewarding. For me, my work is not just an interest but a divine calling. I have been in this profession for 13 years and in spite of the challenges encountered, I am still very passionate about improving the lives of others.Jaala KennedySocial Worker, Grand TurkInline images 4I reflect on the theme for Social Work Month 2015 “Pave the way for Change” and my reason for pursuing the profession of Social Work. I realized that today it is somewhat different from what drove me to become a social worker ten years ago.I initially wanted to empower others. Today I have decided to continue striving in this noble profession because it allows me the opportunity to be empowered myself.The clients I have served and encountered as a Social Worker have amazed me by their unexplainable bravery to fight the odds they daily face by choosing to Believe despite their persecutionsDream beyond their current situationsLive in spite of their limitationsI have recently decided to broaden my prospective and adopt the mindset of many I serve and have dared to believe, dream and live. These are the first three steps needed in paving the way for change in this profession and the world in which we live.Tania Allen-LewisSenior Social Worker, Grand TurkInline images 5To say that Social Work was my first area of interest as a Profession would be disingenuous because my desire was to become a Psychologist. Although this desire was not actualized and has not vanished, I strongly believe that it was my destiny to become a part of the Social Work Profession because of the innate qualities that makes me who I amMatthew 22:14 says that “Many are called but few are chosen”. Throughout my eight years of experience as a Social Worker, there is no doubt in my mind that one has to be chosen for such a Profession as this. I have always been of the opinion that if everyone contributes positively in the communities they live and help their fellow men by way of giving of themselves and their support, this world will be a better place.The theme for Social Work Month 2015 “Social Work pave the way for change” not only encompasses what Social Workers have done to bring about change in their communities but also the positive changes brought about within all of us.Tiffany Thomas-BrowneDeputy Director, Grand TurkInline images 6I first became fascinated with the field of Social Work by observing a Social Worker who was practicing and working directly in the field. I was amazed and excited with the way she conducted investigations, interviews, interacted and engaged the client on a child abuse case.I got my foot wet and was introduced to this field as a Clerical Officer/Welfare Assistant in South Caicos in 1999. I grew a keen interest and became inquisitive on how to become a Social Worker. I observed that there were certain skills that one must possess including: compassion, empathy, problem solving, confidentiality, communication and an overall passion and desire to help people help themselves. What’s most fulfilling about my career is being able to connect, engage and get through to clients; seeing clients follow through with services and eventually leave the system; and providing counseling, mentoring and long-standing programs. We will continue to pave the way for change.Are you committed to our cause? If so, join us! Become a Social Worker and begin paving the way for change.
