Gurias sink Mioks

first_imgA double from Stanly Olo in the first half puts Gurias in front leading 12-0 at the break.The second half grew more physical with Mioks regaining momentum with strong counter attacks and applying hard tackles forcing Gurias into ball handling errors.With 15 into the second half, Mioks half back Dicksy Anni slamed the ball over Gurias line with an amazing fly catch inside the Gurias try line landing under the center post to narrow the lead to 6-12.Gurias than sent in Joe Taputapu into the corner post to further their lead to 16-6.But that was not the end when Gurias struck back before the final whistle with another set play that saw Ezra Gotuno penetrating through the strong Mioks fence with a short ball reaching over and grounding the ball for a 22-6 margin.Gurias now will take on the Mt Hagen Eagles to find the winner that will play the minor premiers Lae Snax Tigers in the Grand final.last_img read more

Getting Phil of communication

first_img“I just want to get their attention and make sure that they’re on the same page and that we can talk about some things,” Jackson said. “I felt like there’s some distances that they were pulling away from each other in the timeouts and I just wanted to tighten it up a little bit and get more cohesive.” Jackson previously stood with a clipboard and huddled his players around him during timeouts. This month has seen Lamar Odom and Sasha Vujacic engage in a shouting match during one timeout and Brian Cook and assistant Brian Shaw do likewise. He had the No. 3 written Sunday in honor of Dennis Johnson, the former Boston Celtics great who died last week. Johnson was an assistant during Odom’s years with the Clippers and later served as the team’s interim head coach. Odom said the two talked when Johnson’s NBA Development League team played at Staples Center on Jan. 12. “He told me he loved me,” Odom said. “Count your blessings.” Also: Jackson said he allowed Vladimir Radmanovic to address his teammates informally about the snowboarding incident in which the forward suffered a separated shoulder. … Once the Lakers return from this trip, Jackson plans on contacting Scottie Pippen, who has said he wants to make a comeback at age 41. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “We were, one guy’s over here, another guy’s over there,” Evans said, adding, “It was something that we brought to (Jackson’s) attention that’s something that has to change.” Jackson has lamented his ability to communicate to his players on occasion this season. Once was in the final minute of a loss at Toronto when the Lakers unsuccessfully played the two-for-one possession game. Despite the change, one thing has stayed the same: Guard Smush Parker regularly walks away from the huddle without hearing Jackson’s words when he knows he’s not going into the game. He sat alone on the bench during a timeout with 3:03 left in the first quarter Sunday when Shammond Williams was set to check in for him. Jackson said earlier this season that he didn’t have a problem with Parker doing so. Evans wasn’t asked about Parker but did say of seeing players standing out of the huddle, “That doesn’t look very good.” In memory: Odom pays tribute on his sneakers to the all the people – his infant son, mother and grandmother – he has lost in his life. center_img OAKLAND – Even after 16seasons as an NBA coach, nine championships and more than 900 wins, Phil Jackson has shown in recent games that he isn’t above changing his style for the good of the team. Jackson has taken to sitting in a chair to face his players on the bench during timeouts, a change that forward Maurice Evans said was suggested during a meeting last week with the Lakers mired in a six-game losing streak. last_img read more

B.C., Alberta in pipeline-electricity trading talks

first_imgUp until now, the Energy East pipeline to Canada’s East Coast had been seen as the province’s best hope of exporting oil.In the interview, she said her time in office has been ‘an often bumpy ride,’ acknowledging a dire state of the economy as a leading cause.The drop in revenues has also renewed talk of introducing a sales tax as a means of providing a reliable funding stream, as Alberta stands the only province in Canada without one. She said her government wouldn’t launch a tax during her first term, but Notley said the next three years could open the door to a discussion about it.Read the full story here.Advertisement EDMONTON, A.B. — Rachel Notley, Alberta’s NDP Premier, is reportedly part of ongoing talks between her province and B.C. to swap pipelines for electricity.According to the Globe and Mail, Alberta is looking for ways to cut back its greenhouse gas emissions and ‘B.C. has tried to sell its neighbour on the notion that buying clean electricity would be one way to do it.’“It’s not that simple but I will say that we are engaged in multilateral talks where there are a lot of linkages in terms of how things might go forward,” she said about the deal.- Advertisement -“I think it’s fair to say that the government of B.C. understands that there wouldn’t be a market for their electricity if we’re not able to get something approaching a non-discounted price for the product that we ship.”A spokesperson for Premier Christy Clark confirmed to the Globe and Mail that talks between the two provinces about energy are under way and agreed that optimism has sprouted out of Kinder Morgan pipeline project, in particular.Notley has also reportedly changed her stance on the Northern Gateway pipeline, where she had previously been ‘unreservedly opposed’ to the $6.5-billion project.Advertisementlast_img read more

Most of the U.S. rented farmland is owned by non-farmers

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Agricultural producers rented and farmed 353.8 million acres of farmland, according to the results of the 2014 Tenure, Ownership, and Transition of Agricultural Land (TOTAL) survey results released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS). Of these acres, 80% are owned by non-farming landlords.According to the survey results, rented farmland acres, combined with buildings on this land, are valued at more than $1.1 trillion. TOTAL counted approximately 2.1 million landlords with various ownership arrangements. In 2014, all of the landlords combined received $31.2 billion in rental income while incurring $9.2 billion in total expenses.A tenth of the 911 million U.S. farmland acres outside of Alaska and Hawaii, or about 91.5 million acres, is slated for ownership transfer in the next five years, not including farmland that is in or is expected to be put into wills. Landlords expect to keep or put nearly 48% of these acres in trusts. Only 21 million acres of land are expected to be sold to a non-relative, while 26 million acres are expected to be sold to a relative or given as a gift. This means that only a small percentage of farmland will be available for new entrants into the farming sector.“Farmland has always been a valuable resource, but what we see in the most recent TOTAL results is the emergence of farmland as a future investment,” said Joseph T. Reilly, NASS Administrator. “More families are creating trust ownerships to make sure land remains in their family for farming or as an investment.”In addition to looking at farmland, TOTAL also provides a glimpse into demographic information for 1.4 million non-farming individuals and principals in partnerships arrangements, also known as principal landlords. According to the findings, the average age of these landlords is 66.5 years old. This age exceeds that of the average farmer, who is 58.3 years old, according to the most recent Census of Agriculture. Only 18% of all principal landlords were under 55 years old. Nearly 45% of all of the principal landlords have never farmed.TOTAL, which NASS conducted in cooperation with USDA’s Economic Research Service (ERS), surveyed farmland ownership in 48 contiguous states. It is the only NASS survey that collects agricultural landlord data. The survey is expected to greatly contribute to research and policy analysis. Farmland ownership and decisions stemming from ownership arrangements are key issues for which ERS serves as a primary source of information.“Access to land is one of the biggest challenges facing agricultural producers, particularly beginning farmers,” said Mary Bohman, ERS Administrator. “TOTAL gives us a chance to demonstrate the extent of the land access issue and provide realistic projections of future land availability for purchase or for rent.”To access the complete 2014 TOTAL results, in addition to key data highlights, methodology, and Frequently Asked Questions, visit or the Quick Stats database at read more
