Man Detained for Chewing Parts of His Wife

first_imgThe Buchanan City Court in Grand Bassa County has charged a 26-year old man identified as James Kollie, a resident of Pearchuzohn C community, in Lower Harlandville Township with the crime of Aggravated Assault and Criminal Attempt to Commit MurderAccording to records of the court, defendant Kollie, with criminal motives, on New Year’s Day severely flogged his wife, Ruth Nah-Kollie in their community, and allegedly chewed up her left ear, left hand finger and left breast.The records indicate that the victim is hospitalized at the Liberia Government Hospital in Buchanan CityThe court, presided over by Senior Associate Magistrate Richard Browne, has considered the act allegedly committed by the defendant as criminal and contravenes Section 14.20 of the New Panel Law of the Republic of Liberia.Meanwhile, the court has detained defendant Kollie at the Upper Buchanan Central Prison, pending the recovery of the victim and subsequent trial proceedings.According to the Police Charge Sheet, the defendant was arrested on Friday, January 2 and acquainted with his constitutional and Miranda rights.During the preliminary interrogation conducted by the police, the defendant said he could not remember what transpired between him and his wife that fateful night because according to him, he was intoxicated with a “mixed up liquid”.The police record indicates that witness’ statement coupled with physical evidence observed showed that defendant Kollie cut or chewed the left ear, left hand finger and left breast of the victim.The police therefore charged the defendant with the crime of Aggrevated Assault.The fuss between the couple started when the defendant reportedly asked his wife to prepare his bath water, which she did but he did not take his bath. Instead he went back in the street to enjoy himself, the report alleges.The victim told the police that upon her husband’s return, he knocked on their window and began to abuse her and her mother.  ‘’When I finally opened the front door, he attacked me and began to flog me severely with anger, thus committing the act against me.’’ She added.The police has forwarded the defendant, the victim and charge sheet to the court for pre-trial.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Fire guts Corentyne boutique

first_imgAn early-morning fire ripped through a clothing establishment located in Number 78 Village, Corentyne, Berbice on Tuesday, leaving the business owner counting millions of dollars in losses.The charred interior of the boutiqueThe now gutted building housed the Indulge Boutique, which was owned and operated by Rajeshwar Ramdass, a well-known entrepreneur in Berbice.According to information reaching Guyana Times, the fire started during intense rainfall around 04:00h. This was as the heavy winds and downpour resulted in sparks emanating from nearby electrical wires which quickly spread to the building.Ramdass, who resides in Springlands, Corentyne, several villages away from Number 78, was only informed of the incident after his establishment was already engulfed in flames.The 46-year-old told the media that by the time he arrived at the scene after receiving a call from residents within the area, it was too late to salvage anything.This publication understands that firefighters arrived shortly after a report was made, but they had no water and as such, were forced to break one of the main pipelines in the village to extinguish the blaze.The Guyana Fire Service has since launched an investigation.last_img read more

first_imgThe late George Friel RIP.The members of Co-operating for Cancer Care NorthWest, CCC(NW) wish to pay tribute to our highly esteemed colleague and dear friend George Friel, who died peacefully in the company of his beloved family at home in Buncrana on Saturday 28 November 2015.George dedicated the last ten plus years campaigning vigorously for the retention and development of cancer services in Letterkenny General/University Hospital and for the provision of Radiotherapy Services for cancer patients in Donegal and the North West Region. He was very successful in his endeavours.All in CCC(NW) recognised in George the qualities of a true Gentle-Man. We all knew that once George said he was going to do a certain thing, it was as good as done. His word was his bond. He was a true and loyal friend. A man who demonstrated a great sense of fun, compassion and kindness. George was a man who, when he learnt that a person was in difficulty offered to help as best he could. He was selfless. He was not a man to knowingly walk away from a person in need. He was a man of great integrity. One of CCC(NW)’s top priorities was to lobby on both sides of the Border to ensure that the possibility of a radiotherapy unit in the North West Region became a reality. George lobbied the length and breadth of this island, he lobbied in Leinster House and Stormont Castle, in Council Chambers, on the streets of Dublin, Derry and Letterkenny, he lobbied politicians and health officials from both sides of the border and he brought our campaign into the homes of every town and townland in Donegal.His message and that of every CCC(NW) member was simple and easy to understand. The people of Donegal and the North West Region need a radiotherapy unit in either Letterkenny General or Altnagelvin Hospital to treat cancer patients locally and we need to work together, speaking with one united voice to achieve this goal.George continued to work/lobby throughout his illness including travelling to Dublin to attend meetings. His last meeting was in October last, in Altnagelvin Hospital where he discussed progress/developments on the Cross Border Radiotherapy Unit due to open next autumn. George was passionate regarding the necessity of locating this facility in the NorthWest Region to serve cancer patients in Donegal/NW.George was also a founding member of Donegal Action for Cancer which was initially established in Moville in March 2005 and he served on its Executive County Committee. He resigned from DACC in early 2007 and joined fellow past DACC members to establish Co-operating for Cancer Care NorthWest in March 2007. Members of CCC(NW) offer our sincere condolences to our highly esteemed members, George’s wife Margaret and his brother John and to George’s children, grandchildren, his brother and sisters and extended family circle. The family of CCC(NW) feels that it too has lost a brother. May George rest in peace.CANCER CAMPAIGNER GEORGE FRIEL – A TRIBUTE was last modified: December 18th, 2015 by StephenShare 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:cancer campaignerdonegalGeorge Friellast_img read more



first_imgFINANCIAL COLUMN: Despite constant reports that the economy is on the road to recovery – and that the good times are just around the corner – there are still thousnads suffering financial woe and worry on a daily basis.Financial expert Shona Chambers, who is an employee at John McColgan Financial Services will write a weekly column on finance for us at Donegal Daily. This week, she focuses on the Health sector – and how expensive having cancer can be for the patient and their family.“If you would know the road ahead, ask someone who has travelled it’”At the beginning of the hit TV series ‘Breaking Bad’, chemistry teacher Walter White gets the shocking diagnosis that he has terminal lung cancer. With his family already struggling to make ends meet, his thoughts turn to how his pregnant wife and his teenage son, who has cerebral palsy, will cope after he is gone. In a desperate effort to build a nest egg before he dies, he uses his chemistry skills to embark upon a secret career manufacturing crystal meth for underground drug dealers.White’s ‘solution’ to providing for his family is both far-fetched and highly illegal — but the underlying concerns are hardly the stuff of fiction. Late last year, the Irish Cancer Society published a report entitled The Real Cost of Cancer, which estimated that the average cost to the patient and their family of going through cancer is €862 per month.  This is before taking in account any loss of income.This week, the Irish Cancer Society announced plans to close its financial support programme due to increased demand. This decision met with strong opposition and outrage on social media and other news outlets, resulting in a U-turn on Wednesday, with the society announcing that it would reverse the decision for the families of children with cancer.As I watched the furore unfold on social media about the cuts to the financial support programme, I realised that there are still a lot of people and families who aren’t aware that there are other ways to protect themselves and their families against the financial impact of a cancer diagnosis.  Cancer Cover is a type of life assurance policy that pays out a lump sum if you are diagnosed with cancer during the term of the plan. You can take out Cancer Cover as part of a life cover policy, or you can take it out as a stand-alone policy. Zurich Life assurance is currently the only company offering cancer cover, although other life assurance policies will offer cover for cancer under their serious illness policies. These policies also cover additional specified illnesses such as cancer, heart attacks and strokes. The types of cancer that would ordinarily be covered under the Zurich Cancer Cover policy include: breast cancer, lung cancer, gynae cancer, malignant melanoma skin cancer, prostate cancer, bowel cancer, testicular cancer and stomach cancer. These include all the most common types of cancer.  It is important to note, however, that if the cancer is caught in the early stages, you would not be eligible to claim under the plan.Cancer cover is available to anyone aged between 18 and 60 (meeting underwriting requirements). With premiums starting from as little as €15 per month, it can be an affordable way of protecting your finances and your family from the impact of cancer.On average, 30,000 people are diagnosed with cancer every year in Ireland (Irish Cancer Social Annual Report 2012). Based on the facts, cancer is something that WILL affect most of us, so it is strongly recommended that you protect yourself financially against the potential impact.Contact Shona on 074) 9124366 to organise your free consultation today.MONEY MATTERS: HOW TO KEEP YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR WALLET HEALTHY was last modified: January 15th, 2016 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:Cancer CovercolumnJohn Mc Colgan Financial Services LTDShona ChambersZurichlast_img read more

Fischer Qualifies For NCAA Cross Country Championship

first_imgStory Links As a team, the Drake men’s squad finished 20th out of the 33 teams that entered runners in the competition and ahead of the likes of DePaul, Creighton, SIU and UNI. The extremely young Drake women’s team, led again by Bailee Cofer (Overland Park, Kan.) finished 32nd in the field of nearly 40 teams. Cofer finished in the top half of the competition in 114th place for the Bulldogs. “Reed ran an excellent tactical race,” said Drake head coach Dan Hostager. “He’s put a lot of work into making it to NCAAs so it was great to see it happen against some of the nation’s best. There’s definitely more left to be done as his goal has always been to do well at NCAAs. So he won’t be satisfied just getting there and achieving this tremendous accomplishment in of itself.” IOWA CITY, Iowa –  Drake University senior Reed Fischer (Minnetonka, Minn.) added to his impressive legacy on Friday afternoon by earning a spot in the NCAA Cross Country Championship. Fischer, the reigning Missouri Valley Conference champion, qualified for the NCAA field with a seventh-place finish at the NCAA Midwest Regional on Friday, Nov. 11.

Fischer completed the 10k course, his first 10k competition of the year, in 30:29.8. “Both teams are very young and they competed well today,” Hostager added. “That will provide some great momentum, not just for next season, but for the upcoming track season. I’m very proud of how hard they’ve worked all fall and there weren’t too many MVC teams ahead of us today, which bodes well for our future.” NCAA Midwest RegionalNov. 11, 2016 – Iowa City IowaAshton Cross Country Course Complete Results Of the 12 Bulldogs that competed at the NCAA Midwest Regional, nine were either freshman or sophomores and eight were competing in their first NCAA Regional competitions.   Drake Individual Women’s Results6k – 235 runners114.

first_imgRIP: Kym HarleyTHERE were heartbreaking scenes in the Twin Towns today as hundreds and hundreds of people came out to say goodbye to teenager Kym Harley who died in a road traffic accident on Tuesday. St Mary’s Church, Stranorlar was packed to capacity, with many in attendance forced to stand outside the chapel as the crowds swelled inside.Kym, 19, was killed in the early hours of Tuesday morning, after the car in which she was a passenger struck a ditch at Dreenan, not far from her home. Kym is the daughter of well-know local publican and Fine Gael councillor Martin Harley.There was a huge political representation at the funeral, with Fine Gael minister Joe McHugh and Deputy Dinny McGinley attending along with a whole host of county councillors that included local councillors Frank McBrearty, Patrick McGowan and Martin Crawford.Fr Kieran McAteer said beautiful Kym had given her family and friends precious memories in her short life that they’ll never forget.Fr McAteer said, “Kym has given her family and friends that knew her best, the most ‘precious memories’ that they’ll never ever forgot and forever treasure. “Kym’s zest for life, and beautiful personality endeared her to anyone who had the privilege of knowing her.“She loved life, and enjoyed herself, but she was always willingly to help anyone out, and was so kind to her friends and family.Father Martin Harley bravely paid a moving tribute to his late daughter Kym, and thanked her for being a wonderful daughter and sister for 19 memorable years.He said, “I want to thank the emergency services that attended the scene of the accident, and to all of you who have shown us such immense support over the last number of days.“To those of you, who put your lives on hold over the last few days to help us organise everything, we can’t thank you enough, we can never repay you. “Finally, I want to thank Kym, I want to thank her for being a wonderful daughter, and sister for 19 years.“We had a lot of fun and we have so many precious memories of you, we had a lot of dramas too, like fires in the garage, and jumping into the swimming pool without any armbands on.“When Kym loved you, then by God you knew it, and if she didn’t then by God you knew that too.“She was a wonderful person and a great daughter, she loved her family and she loved her friends and we all loved her. The devastated family of Kym Harley leave St Mary’s Church, Stranorlar. Pic by NorthwestNewspixFr Kieran McAteer praised the solidarity the local community had shown since the tragic accident, and said solace could be taken from how everybody rallied around the family and showed them so much love and support through the most difficult time imaginable.Kym was buried in Drumboe cemetery after the requiem Mass at St Mary’s Church, Stranorlar.DAD’S MOVING TRIBUTE TO ‘BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER KYM’ was last modified: October 17th, 2014 by John2Share 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:19BallybofeyfuneralKym HarleyStranorlartwin townslast_img read more



first_imgChef Martin AndersonThe rise of the vegetarian !!Not the latest title of a Hollywood Blockbuster but merely something that myself and I’m sure other chefs have noticed and addressed .I remember in the formative years of my career vegetarians were an elite and dare I say annoying group of individualS who loved to announce their arrival at events – ‘so what has the chef made for me , me , me !’ Of course you couldn’t blame them their menu choice ranged from cold cheese salad , omelettes, the ever popular stir fry ( basically anything that resembled raw vegetables , fried in oil & drowned in black bean sauce , served with rice )I had the pleasure of cooking for Mary Black (the singer!!) years ago and that’s what she had to eat.Also popular were tomatoes stuffed with ropey rice, deep fried aubergine slices with canned tomato sauce, not very imaginative.It was horrendous , a bit like egg mayonnaise and melon wedge still featuring on Banqueting menus !! What are ye like its 2015 , let’s shake things up and do some real cooking .Vegetarianism nowadays is not just about caring for how animals are treated but has taken over as a lifestyle choice and how we treat ourselves.The higher class vegetarian is called a vegan , no animal produce of any kind will pass their lips , soya , coconut , almond milk are available now , quorn has become the new protein & dairy free cardboard breads , raw salads & no leather shoes or trousers for this elite band of diners !!I’m not a nutritionist but I do wonder sometimes about the amount of meat some folk consume in a week , 4/6oz of meat or fish for a main course is recommend daily , that’s a serious amount of meat through the course of your lifetime & remember some of it isn’t even real meat !! I recently read a packet where the ingredients read 63% chicken , what was the rest of it ??There are several religions where it is forbidden to eat meat , the Hare Krishna’s for one do not consume or use any animal products at all …….and they are always happy !With the discovery of new foods on a daily basis and the availability of worldwide produce I’m delighted to say vegans and vegetarians are welcomed with open arms , spicy foods are always popular , pastas , grains and even the humble spud are all options . Indian , Thai & Malaysian foods have fantastic vegetarian ingredients , seeds , nuts , fruits & berries all play a major role in this style of cooking and are good for you , juices & smoothies have replaced meals and if ya need a shot of protein well boil an egg and horse it into you , technically unless the egg was fertilised it was never alive !!So have a think about replacing one or two meals a week with a vegetarian options or order something vegetarian the next time you are dining out , it’ll always be cooked fresh & ya might just annoy the Chef too !! Hare Krishna !!This week’s recipe is for Quorn stuffed peppers , a great alternative to meat and if you follow this recipe they will think they are eating real mince , everyone’s a winner !!Quorn stuffed peppers. Allow 1 pepper per person.You will need.Cooked rice of your choice , white , brown , wild or organic.Allow 60g of raw rice per pepper.Quorn mince 100g per pepper , make sure it’s defrosted & squeeze out and juice .Chopped onion cooked in a little lo-cal or rapeseed oil. ¼ of a small onion per pepper.A couple of chopped cloves of garlic .Fresh chopped herbs. (Coriander or basil )Cooked sweet corn or peas.Seasoning.1 pint of vegetarian Stock.Method.Remove the top from the pepper and set aside (keeping the stalk attached), scoop out the centre, and trim the bottom to enable the pepper to stand up, set aside.Combine the quorn, rice, onion, garlic, herbs, corn ,peas and seasoning in a bowl.Fill the mix into the pepper and place the top back on.Place the pepper in a deep dish and pour over the stock, cover with a lid or tin foil and roast until tender and the mix is heated through.Serve the peppers with a good tossed salad spooning some of the cooking liquor over them.Quorn is a vegetarian meat substitute , full or protein and flavour , add a chopped chilli to give that extra flavour if you wish.HE’S FRESH IN THE KITCHEN – RISE OF THE VEGETARIAN BY CHEF MARTIN ANDERSON was last modified: August 6th, 2015 by StephenShare 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:chef Martin Andersondonegallast_img read more


Kipchoge wins men’s London Marathon as Mo’Farah comes third

first_img Tags: KipchogeLondon MarathonMo Farahsporttop Comments Eliud Kipchoge won in London to follow his victories in 2015 and 2016(AGENCIES PHOTO)Kenyan athlete Eliud Kipchoge proved yet again why he is the greatest runner over 26.2 miles in history, as he powered to his third title in London and 10th marathon victory in 11 races.Everyone knew that with temperatures over 20C it would be a tough day. Yet both Kipchoge and Farah were in a group of athletes who set off at a startlingly fast pace – and covered the first 13.1 miles in 61 minutes, well inside the world record of 2:02:57Mo Farah added another British record to his long archive of titles and achievements as he finished third in a brutally hot London Marathon clocking 2:06:21.Kenyan world athletics Champion, Kipchoge came to prominence in 2003 by winning the junior race at the IAAF World Cross Country Championships, setting a world junior record over 5000 metres on the track and then becoming world champion at the 2003 World Championships in Athletics.Farah was left to rue starting too fast. “I am knackered,” he admitted. “The guys just went for it. They went at world record pace. It was do or die. I hung as much as I could but it is so different to the track – it is different pain.”It was always going to a grim test of survival after that. And so it proved. Unsurprisingly it was Kipchoge, the Yoda of distance running, who coped better than anyone, breaking away from the Ethiopian Tola Kitata after 24 miles to win by 33 seconds in 2:04:17sec.The legendary British athlete Mo Farah (AGENCIES PHOTO)Farah now, unbelievably, holds the British records over 1,500m, 3,000m, 5,000m, 10,000m, the half-marathon and the marathon. His performance will inspire awe in some quarters and suspicion in others, given his former coach Alberto Salazar – who turned him from a world-level runner into a world-beater – remains under investigation by the US Anti-Doping Agency.Yet despite his lack of bottle Farah was still in contention deep into the race, even moving up to hang on Kipchoge’s shoulder after 18 miles. However it was the briefest of mirages. Soon he was slipping backwards, leaving Kipchoge and Kitata to duke it out at the front.Yet Farah is optimistic that his time has proved that he could cut it as an elite marathon runner. “If I can run 2hr 06min here in a major championship, it shows I can be competitive. I’ve beaten some good runners.last_img read more

first_img22 August 2006South Africa has unveiled a high-tech national control centre that will monitor movements in prisons throughout the country via surveillance cameras, turnstile gates and metal detectors all linked through a state-of-the-art network.Developed by information technology firm Sondolo, the centre is part of an R88-million project to radically improve security in SA’s prisons.Officials manning the centre in Pretoria will be able to monitor “strategic access points” in prisons countrywide, and to communicate with officials at local level, alerting them to security breaches the moment they are detected.Details of inmates’ families and friends will also be logged into the system, making it easier to control prisoners’ access to the outside world.The process of beefing up security in SA’s prisons – to prevent escapes as well as weapon and drug smuggling – started in June 2005.Since then, over 1 500 cameras, 390 turnstile gates and hundreds of metal detectors have been installed in SA’s prisons, with more to come before the end of the year.Opening the national control centre on Monday, Correctional Services Minister Ngconde Balfour said “the game was over” for criminals who undermined security at prisons.Balfour said the government was considering installing the system in prison communal areas as well, to help combat violence among reporter and BuaNews Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

Should dairy alternatives be called milk?

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest What is milk? It may seem a simple question at first, but dairy producers across the country are finding themselves in the middle of a conversation debating the topic.In recent years, livestock dairy alternatives like so-called almond milk, soymilk, rice yogurt, and much more have appeared on grocery shelves across the country. Such names have prompted a call by the dairy industry for products to stop infringing on the use of milk in labeling.The issue was recently highlighted when just before Christmas, 32 members of Congress wrote a letter to the Food and Drug Administration asking them to enforce existing guidelines on the matter. The National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) was among the many farm groups that quickly lauded the statement, saying milk should come from livestock while other products should not be using the term so generously.“This is an issue that has concerned dairy farmers for many years now in that we have federal regulations that say dairy foods have to come from cows, or at least from other dairy animals, and you don’t “Got Milk” if it comes from a nut, a seed, a bean, or a grain,” said Chris Galen, spokesperson for the National Milk Producers Federation. “And yet we’re seeing increasingly more of these products in the grocer’s dairy case that don’t come from dairy animals. They’re labeled, as soy milk, almond milk, rice yogurt, even soy cheese and hemp milk. All these things of course are plant based, so all we’re asking the Food and Drug Administration to do is enforce the existing federal guidelines that provide clear standards for what can and cannot be called milk.”NMPF has been addressing the issue for years, but Galen said this time is different with the push coming directly from lawmakers.“Those regulations have not been enforced, so it’s good news now that congress is stepping in,” he said.Galen posed a note of caution to consumers when seeing “milk” across various non-livestock products. He said the problem arises when consumers assume the word means a uniformly positive source of nutrients.“The big concern for us is that while imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, you don’t have the same amount of nutrition in these imitation dairy products. Some of them are fortified with similar amounts of protein, but not always,” Galen said. “In fact, the most popular ‘dairy imposters,’ almond and rice ‘milk,’ have very little protein at all. So if you’re a mom and you want to provide a nutrition powerhouse serving of milk to your kids — one that has protein vitamins A and D, calcium, potassium, and other vitamins and minerals — you know that you’re getting a consistent amount of that if you give them an eight-ounce glass of real milk.“They’re imitations, but they’re not substitutes.”Galen said it’s important to realize the advantages of traditional milk.“That’s why we have standards. So that we have a consistent product delivered to consumers by each serving and yet we don’t have standards being enforced that would do that who would choose these plant-based imitators,” he said.We know regular milk comes from a cow or other lactating animal. Where does the plant-based milk come from?“It’s really a laboratory concoction where you take a handful of almonds and grind them up and add some flavorings and emulsifiers and things that are designed to make it look as much as possible like the original milk,” Galen said. “The same is true of rice, which of course is a grain, so you just take rice and mash it up in a laboratory and add these other things to make it look like milk.“So that’s the irony here — while the plant-based foods defender wants to call rice milk or soy milk just as much as milk is applied to other terms, you really have to stretch a lot to take something like rice or almonds or even soy, mash them up, and add these flavorings to make them look like milk. And then you put it in a carton, same as what you may have real milk come from, and then put it in the dairy case. They’re doing all these things designed to imitate milk, and yet nutritionally, they don’t quite measure up.”While NMPF has been in the spotlight recently for the look at milk labeling, Galen said there a number of other significant matters for the organization at this time, including work on the much criticized Dairy Margin Protection Program.“There are several priority items for us because we have a new Congress in town right now, and then we’ll be having a new President here later in January,” he said. “Our number one priority is working with Congress to implement changes in the dairy safety net called the Margin Protection Program. It was created in the most recent farm bill more than three years ago. It has not lived up to its expectations. That needs to be fixed by Congress,” Galen said. “So what we’re doing as an organization is working through some possible changes this winter and then we’ll be presenting those at the end of the winter to Congress in the hopes that they can act on it in 2017.“Other priorities include making certain that any changes in our trade policy, or our implementation of immigration policy — both of those are high profile national issues — are done in ways that don’t detrimentally affect the dairy industry.”last_img read more

Atalanta Has Italian Cup and Champions League to Play For

first_imgMILAN — For one club, winning the Italian Cup would salvage a disappointing season. For the other, it’s not even the top priority.Fourth-place Atalanta plays Lazio in the Italian Cup final on Wednesday at Stadio Olimpico, giving the competition a new champion after four years of Juventus domination.Atalanta has won the competition only once, back in 1963, and has only reached the final on two other occasions — in 1987 and 1996. However, the team from the small northern city of Bergamo has other ambitions, like qualifying for the Champions League for the first time in its history.“Personally I want both to qualify for the Champions League and the cup,” Atalanta defender Gianluca Mancini said. “I can’t and I won’t choose.”Atalanta has played in the Europa League for the past two years, but this season they lost in the playoff round on penalties. The club’s only other appearances in European competitions came in the UEFA Cup (1989-90 and 1990-91) and the Cup Winners’ Cup (1963-64 and 1987-88).For coach Gian Piero Gasperini, the choice between winning the Italian Cup and qualifying for Europe’s premier club competition is a no-brainer.“I’ve said it before, I would choose a place in the Champions League,” Gasperini said. “Trophies aren’t just cups in a display case, for Atalanta playing for that cup (the Champions League) would be really important.“So I’ve always said Champions League, but lifting a trophy is not something that happens every day.”Atalanta’s head coach Gian Piero Gasperini, left, gives directions to Marten de Roon, right, during a Serie A soccer between Atalanta and Genoa at the Mapei Stadium in Reggio Emilia, Italy, Saturday, May 11, 2019. (Paolo Magni/ANSA via AP)Atalanta beat Juventus 3-0 in the quarterfinals, ending the defending champion’s hopes of a fifth straight league and cup double. It then beat Fiorentina 6-4 on aggregate in the semifinals.The first match against Fiorentina kicked off an ongoing 11-match unbeaten streak, which has lifted Atalanta up to fourth place in Serie A and the final Champions League qualifying berth.Atalanta has a three-point advantage over AC Milan and Roma with two matches remaining.Lazio is seven points behind and its Champions League hopes ended two weeks ago with a loss to Atalanta — its second of the season.Lazio has won the Italian Cup six times. Five of those victories have come in the past 21 years, making it the most successful club in the competition over that time.The Rome club has also lost in three finals, including twice to Juventus in the previous four editions.Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi was in charge for the 2017 loss. Both he and Gasperini have never won the Italian Cup as a coach, although Inzaghi won it as a player with Lazio three times.“We fear Lazio, which has a lot of quality and so much choice up front,” Mancini said. “But I think Lazio also fears us, so the final will be a 50-50 match.”By: Daniella Matar, Associated PressTweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more
