  • Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — October 27, 2017

    first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We have a nice finish to the week here today. Another cool start over the state, but in general we see sunshine as a big player through the day. Winds have shifted to the southwest, so that will help moderate temps a bit.Our next front is on the way for tomorrow. Rains will range from .25” to .5” over about 80% of the state, although we may have to allow for slightly higher totals (up to .75”??) in Darke, Shelby and Preble counties, an offshoot of some of the better rains coming out of Indiana overnight tonight into early tomorrow morning. But, in general, these will be fairly gentle, easily used showers. They should be done by late afternoon or evening.It will be mostly dry to finish the weekend Sunday, and that dry stretch continues through next Tuesday. A minor upper level disturbance dragging across the Great Lakes may push a few clouds down into northern parts of the state late Monday afternoon and Monday night, but this is not a concern at this time. We are looking for three complete dry days in-between systems.That puts our next system in here still on Wednesday, and the moisture likely lingers into Thursday. The bulk of our .1” to .7” rains come Wednesday, but we can see a few hundredths to a tenth or two of the complete total come with hit and miss stuff on Thursday. Coverage will be about 80% of the state. Cooler air rushes in behind. The map above shows one week rain totals that includes the front for tomorrow and the front for midweek.The remainder of the week looks good. Dry weather returns for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. However, our next front is churning things up off to the west next Sunday, so do not be surprised if clouds start to push in through the day. At this point, we are leaving the arrival of that next strong frontal complex out of the 10-day window, pushing it back into the extended period. Overnight next Sunday night into Monday the 6th, we likely see our first wave of showers, and then a second wave comes for the night of the 6th into the 7th. All told, that system could bring .5” to 1.5” of rain over 90% of the state. It will be a significant rain maker, slow field work once again.The remainder of the extended period looks dry, with sunshine and seasonable temps for the 8th through the 11th.last_img read more

  • Misbah asks politicians to end Indo-Pak cricketing logjam

    first_imgPakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq believes only political intervention can lead to a resumption of bilateral cricketing ties with India and open the doors for his country’s players in the lucrative Indian Premier League (IPL) and Champions League Twenty20. Pakistan Captain Misbah-Ul-Haq says political intervention can revive bilateral seriesIn an interview to Pakistani TV channel Geo Super, the batsman said he found it frustrating that cricket ties are getting affected because of politics. “I don’t think it is in the hands of players or cricket authorities as far as Indo-Pak cricket ties are concerned. I think politics decides ties between the two countries. And only political intervention can lead to a resumption of bilateral ties,” he said. Misbah said it was unfortunate that Pakistan, despite being a top cricket nation, was not being allowed to play in the IPL.      “It does irritate you. But one can’t do anything. Relations between the two countries are always dictated by political issues.”  The Test and ODI captain also stressed on the need for resumption of regular bilateral ties with India.  “Playing India is very important for us from a cricketing and financial point of view. The more we play against each other, the more mature the audiences will also become. There is always something special about playing against India and the players do miss contests against them,” he said. “As such there has been no tensions between players we sit together and we get along. But when we play obviously there is great pressure on both sides because of the hype and expectations that come from a Indo-Pak match,” Misbah added. Misbah made it clear he had no clear time-line in his mind about retiring from the game. The 37-year-old player said he would continue to play as long as he was fit and able to do justice to his team.  “I don’t want to hang around preventing some young player from coming in. The day I feel enough is enough and I am not doing justice I will quit. I am only going on in international cricket because at my age I am still passionate about the sport and see playing at the top level as a big challenge.”  Misbah advocated the formation of a players’ union as he feels it can help reduce the controversies that plague the Pakistani team.  “A players association with the right people in place can do a lot in Pakistan cricket. It can improve communication between players, management and board. It can educate and guide players on contentious issues. It can lead to a reduction in the controversies and scandals that hit Pakistan cricket.”  With inputs from PTI. advertisementlast_img read more

United could have won it 2-0, 3-0, but Arsenal deserve a little bit of credit, they responded well at half time.”But belief, confidence, a combination of those things is needed.”United aren’t cutting teams open, they get the goal really from a counter attack, and that’s where the team are at the moment.” last_img read more

  • Cal HC directs WB govt to release 10 per cent MBBS docs

    first_imgKolkata: The Calcutta High Court upholding a State Administrative Tribunal (SAT) order today directed the West Bengal government to release 10 per cent in-service MBBS doctors for post graduate courses. Dismissing an appeal by the state government challenging the SAT order, a division bench of justices Debasish Kargupta and Sampa Sarkar directed it to comply with the order within two weeks. The SAT had on June 11 directed that the state government release 10 per cent of in-service MBBS doctors in state-run hospitals, which would roughly translate to a total of over 300 MBBS degree holders getting a chance to pursue MD/MS courses, as against 196 candidates allowed by the state, counsel for the petitioner doctors said. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal life During the hearing, state counsel Amitesh Banerjee had told the court that rural healthcare services in the state would be in jeopardy if 10 per cent of the available MBBS doctors were allowed to go for higher studies as 37 rural health centres had only one doctor each, while 23 others had two each. He had also said that 180 seats were available for post-graduate courses in the medical colleges of the state for 2018 and the names of 196 candidates were released as per the merit list, with a waiting list of 16 candidates. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killed Challenging the list, 105 in-service doctors whose names appeared in the merit list after the said 196 names had moved the SAT. Opposing the state’s plea, the doctors’ counsel submitted that there was a huge dearth of specialist doctors at the state-run facilities in West Bengal and that it was for the benefit of the patients that more doctors were allowed to study MD/MS courses. The doctors’ counsel, Pratik Dhar claimed before the bench that the state-run hospitals in West Bengal had only 117 MD/MS doctors against a requirement of 1,700 post-graduate doctors. He submitted that there were 349 community health centres in the state and as per stipulation each should have at least five specialist doctors. With the SAT ordering that 10 per cent of the available MBBS doctors working at the state-run healthcare facilities be allowed to pursue higher studies, the government had moved the appeal before the high court.last_img read more

  • Kaushiks attempt to create peace in homophobic world

    first_imgGiving a poignant message about acceptance of all kinds of love in the society, the National Award winning film Nagarkirtan is all set to release on February 15. The film which is directed by Kaushik Ganguly will attempt to create a dialogue about the pertaining issue.Talking about the concept of the film, Kaushik said: “Many years have passed since Just another love story was made. Through the making of that film, I have come to know a lot of people who are beyond the conventional sexual preference for being a man or a woman. Getting to know them and be around them, for such a long time now, has opened a wide real world ahead. In this struggle of gender transformation from a man to a woman and vice versa, I have seen a quite a few acquaintances lose their lives. I doubt when they will get to live in peace in this homophobia-stricken world.” The director hopes that with his characters’ Madhu and Putis’ anguish would draw some affection from these people they are trying to live among. And, someday, all these little pains would culminate to make this a better world for them.last_img read more
