GAA: Gary McDaid feels the decision by Michael Murphy to opt out of forthcoming International Rules series is the right one.McDaid managed Murphy at Glenswilly and is also a member of Rory Gallagher’s backroom staff. Murphy has been in high demand since he was 17 with club, county, college and country commitments.Yesterday, Murphy announced that he wanted to give his body a good rest so he can be fresh for the start of Donegal National League campaign in January.McDaid feels it’s the right decision for Murphy – and feels an extended rest not usually afforded to the Donegal captain will have massive benefits for both the player and his suitors.McDaid told The Irish Independent, “It would be massively beneficial for him to get some time to allow the body to heal and repair over winter. “It’s been great to play so late in the year with the club but for Michael, one thing just seems to lead into another and he’s never really been able to slow down.”I suppose luckily for him he’s been kept busy with success at club and county, but this year is ending much earlier for him. If he has his way, I don’t think he’ll be finishing up this early ever again,”“So I think it would be great to take the chance to recuperate because he might never get it again. On the other hand, he’ll definitely get the chance to represent Ireland again.”Many Donegal fans have backed Murphy’s decision not to represent his country and feel the time is right for Rory Gallagher’s talisman to get a good rest over the winter.MCDAID – “MURPHY’S DECISION TO OPT OUT OF INTERNATIONAL DUTY IS THE RIGHT ONE” was last modified: September 24th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:GAASport
SANTA CLARA — Here is how the 49ers (7-0) graded in Sunday’s 51-13 rout of the visiting Carolina Panthers (4-3):PASS OFFENSE: A-Jimmy Garoppolo had a pass intercepted, for the sixth of seven games? Yep. And he lived to talk about another win, the most lopsided one of his 49ers career (13-2 as their starter). “Just a bad decision,” Garoppolo said before jokingly playing it off. “It was ‘National Tight End … CLICK HERE if you are having a problem viewing the photos or video on a mobile device
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Rich Minyo, Allen Geyer, David Lohnes, and Peter ThomisonIn 2018, 192 corn hybrids representing 24 commercial brands were evaluated in the Ohio Corn Performance Test (OCPT). Four tests were established in the Southwestern/West Central/Central (SW/WC/C) region and three tests were established in the Northwestern (NW) and North Central/Northeastern (NC/NE) regions (for a total of ten test sites statewide). Hybrid entries in the regional tests were planted in either an early or a full season maturity trial. These test sites provided a range of growing conditions and production environments.Growing conditions were very favorable for corn production across most of Ohio in 2018. The growing season was characterized by well above average rainfall and heat unit accumulation (growing degree-days). Precipitation and heat unit accumulation were generally greater at OCPT sites in the SW/WC/C region (with rainfall ranging from 23.3 to 26.3 inches and heat unit accumulation ranging from 3270 to 3520 GDDs) than at sites in the NW and NC/NE regions. Moreover, rainfall was generally well distributed at these sites. The impact of dry conditions in July and August on crop performance at the Van Wert and Hoytville sites in NW Ohio and the Wooster and Beloit sites in NE/NC Ohio were mitigated by timely rains in late August and September. Due to the warm, wet conditions, foliar diseases (primarily gray leaf spot) and ear rots (primarily Gibberella and Diplodia ear rots) were present at nearly all test sites. However, the disease severity was highly variable and it was usually most pronounced for a limited number of hybrids. The highest yielding sites were generally associated with foliar fungicide applications at tassel – the major exception being the test site at Bucyrus (the second highest yielding OCPT site in 2018) which exhibited little leaf disease or ear rot. Stalk lodging was evident mostly in the NW and NE/NC test sites but negligible for most of the hybrids evaluated. Warm temperatures in August through mid-October promoted crop maturation and dry down but persistent rains in September through November slowed harvest.In 2018, USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service estimates Ohio’s corn yield at 193 bushels per acre, which would be 16 bushels per acre more than last year’s and highest on record if realized. Yields at OCPT test sites paralleled the record yields reported across the state this year. Averaged across hybrid entries in the early and full season tests, yields were 273 bushels per in the Southwestern/West Central/Central region, 238 bushels per acre in the Northwestern region, and 242 bushels per acre in the North Central/Northeastern region. Yields at individual test sites, averaged across hybrid entries in the early and full season tests, ranged from 203 bushels per acre at Beloit to 285 bushels per acre at Greenville. Performance data for Upper Sandusky in the NW region is not presented because excessive rainfall shortly after planting created variable field conditions that resulted in erratic stands, uneven growth and inconsistent yields.Tables 1 and 2 provide an overview of 2018 hybrid performance in the early maturity and full season hybrid trials by region. Averages for grain yield and other measures of agronomic performance are indicated for each region. In addition, the range in regional test site averages is shown in parentheses.As you review 2018 test results, it’s important to keep the following in mind. Confidence in test results increases with the number of years and the number of locations in which the hybrid was tested. Avoid selecting a hybrid based on data from a single test site, especially if the site was characterized by abnormal growing conditions. Look for consistency in a hybrid’s performance across a range of environmental conditions. Consider the table providing a “Combined regional summary of hybrid performance” which indicates the performance of hybrids common to nine statewide test sites and the six tests in western Ohio. Differences in grain moisture percentages among hybrids at harvest can provide a basis for comparing hybrid maturity. Yield, % stalk lodging, grain moisture, and other comparisons should be made between hybrids of similar maturity to determine those best adapted to your farm. Table 1.

You have asked so many times that you have lost count of how much this contact has told you “No.” You want to believe that “no” doesn’t mean “no,” that it means “maybe,” or “later,” or something.And then you stop calling this prospect. They’re just too difficult. You give up.A Step Onto the Slippery SlopeYou’ve been calling another dream client. You haven’t called them nearly as often as you called the first dream client, the one you decided to quit pursuing. But this prospect is no different. They won’t give you the time of day, and they continually reject your request for a meeting out of hand.Even though you’ve made only half the attempts to reach this client as the first prospect, you decide it’s hopeless. So you stop calling and move on to lower hanging fruit.Spiraling DownwardAnother dream client has taken your calls. But she’s always said “no” to each and every one of your requests for a meeting. She’s nice, polite, and professional, but she always says “no.” Honestly, you haven’t made anywhere near as many attempts to schedule a meeting with this prospect as you have the other two.You decide that this prospect is just like the other two, and you decide to discontinue calling her. You have better things to do with your time.Slowly, imperceptibly, you have trained yourself to take “no” for an answer. You’ve allowed yourself to give up the discomfort of persistence for the conflict-free role of pushover.The pursuit of your dream clients is a game with no time limit. You don’t have to win now. You don’t even have to win their business next quarter. You just have to win their business eventually. If you keep giving up every time a prospect says “no,” how long will it be before you eliminate all of the dream clients in your territory?The mark of the professional is their willingness to persist.
