“Tom’s done some great things for our hockey club,” general manager Steve Tambellini said in a video statement posted on the Oilers website. “But we felt at this time it was the right decision to make a change.”We’re entering a new phase of our hockey club. We’ve got some great challenges, but ones that we’re looking forward to. I want to thank Tom for his work that he’s done with us.”Renney came to Edmonton having previously served as head coach with the New York Rangers and Vancouver Canucks.The 57-year-old Cranbrook native was fired from the Rangers in February 2009 after 61 games, following three full seasons and 20 games in another when he took over from Glen Sather, who remained as general manager.Renney was also fired in Vancouver in 1997-98 after his first full season with the club.Renney got his start in hockey in the KIJHL. He won the league championship as skipper of the Columbia Valley Rockies before moving to coaching in the Western Hockey League and winning a Memorial Cup with Kamloops Blazers.In two season with the Blazers Renney compiled a 101-37-6 record for a .714 winning percentage, which ranks as the all-time highest winning mark in CHL history.Before coaching in the NHL, Renney guided Canada to a silver medal at the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway.Renney and wife Glenda own a summer home near Nelson on the North Shore overlooking Kootenay Lake. The Edmonton Oilers are parting ways with former Kootenay International Junior Hockey League coach Tom Renney after two seasons as skipper of the NHL franchise.The team made the announcement via Twitter on Thursday, saying Renney’s contract will not be renewed.Renney joined the team for the 2010-11 season and finished with an NHL-worst 25-45-12 record.This season the Oilers started strong but still finished at the basement of the league, improving slightly to a 32-40-10 record for second-last overall. Although Edmonton did win the NHL hockey lottery and will once again draft first overall.It’s the third consecutive year Edmonton has the first pick in the NHL draft.
ARCADIA, Calif. (April 9, 2015)–Fox Hill Farms’ Kentuckian, a dazzling 11 length first out maiden winner on March 7 at Golden Gate Fields, heads a deep and competitive field of nine 3-year-olds going six furlongs in Sunday’s $75,000 San Pedro Stakes at Santa Anita. Trained by Jerry Hollendorfer, Kentuckian was dispatched as the heavy 3-5 favorite in a field of eight at Golden Gate and drew off easily under Russell Baze while covering six furlongs in a rapid 1:08.80 A $610,000 Keeneland September yearling, Kentuckian is by two-time Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Tiznow and is out of the Unbridled’s Song mare Forest Music. Kentuckian, who earned a Beyer Speed figure of 90 in the maiden win, drew post position two and will be ridden by Rafael Bejarano. Trainer Dan Hendricks will saddle combacking Om, who has been idle since breaking his maiden by 7 ¼ lengths at Del Mar on Aug. 9. Owned by the Sareen Family Trust, Om is a Kentucky-bred colt by Munnings and he earned a San Pedro best last-out Beyer of 98 in running 6 ½ furlongs on Polytrack in 1:15.60. A well beaten fifth at 5-2 first time out on June 20, Om was off at 22-1 for the maiden score under Fernando Perez, who rides him back. Trainer Art Sherman’s Well Maybe comes off a solid 2 ½ length allowance win going 6 ½ furlongs Feb. 21 and seeks his third consecutive win for owner Ed Allred. With regular rider Joe Talamo out for the week due to a sore shoulder, Mike Smith will take over from the rail. A Florida-bred gelding by Yes It’s True, Well Maybe has two wins from three starts. Although he’s stopped badly in his last two starts, the 6 ½ furlong turf Baffle Stakes on Feb. 15 and the Grade II, seven furlong San Vicente on Feb. 1, trainer Peter Miller’s Serbian Syclone has a good outside draw with new pilot Tyler Baze and the cutback in distance may also be to his liking. A Kentucky-bred colt by Wildcat Heir, Serbian Syclone is owned by Rockingham Ranch and has two wins from five starts. The only graded stakes winner in the lineup, trainer Michael McCarthy’s No Problem took the Grade III, seven furlong Bob Hope Stakes three starts back at Del Mar Nov. 15 and he’s also the leading money earner in the field with $92,860 to his credit. Fifth, beaten 14 ½ lengths two starts back by recent Santa Anita Derby winner Dortmund in the Grade I, 1 1/16 miles Los Alamitos Futurity Dec. 20, No Problem ran an even fifth in the 6 ½ furlong turf Baffle Stakes Feb. 15. A Kentucky-bred ridgling by Munnings, he would appear better suited to the conditions of the San Pedro. Hronis Racing’s Yiannis prevailed by a nose going 5 ½ furlongs in his debut over Gimme Da Lute, who flattered Yiannis by breaking his maiden versus California-breds in his next start and by registering a sensational 5 ¼ length win in Santa Anita’s Echo Eddie Stakes last Saturday. A $560,000 2-year-old in training sale purchase in March, 2014, the Kentucky-bred ridgling by Midshipman was the 4-5 favorite in his debut. The complete field for the San Pedro Stakes, to be run as the eighth race on a nine-race card Saturday, with jockeys and weights in post position order: Well Maybe, Mike Smith, 117; Kentuckian, Rafael Bejarano, 115; The Man, Martin Garcia, 115; Guy Code, Gonzalo Nicolas, 115; Gloria’s Angelo, Drayden Van Dyke, 115; Yiannis, Victor Espinoza, 115; Om, Fernando Perez, 115; No Problem, Santiago Gonzalez, 122, and Serbian Syclone, Tyler Baze, 117. First post time on Saturday is at 12:30 p.m. Admission gates open at 10:30 a.m. HOLLENDORFER TRAINEE DAZZLING 11 LENGTH WINNER AT GOLDEN GATE FIELDS MARCH 7
Gardai are hunting for two young men who viciously attacked a man at Lower Main Street in Letterkenny leaving him with serious injuries.The savage assault happened around 3am on Friday morning last, August 9th.Two men, wearing tracksuits, attacked a man and kicked and punched him a number of times leaving him in a serious condition.

Pandor said she was confident that these new positions would improve South Africa’s international research and innovation competitiveness while responding to the socio-economic challenges facing the country. Since the SARChI’s inception in 2005, the government has invested over R1.1-billion in the programme, which is managed by the National Research Foundation (NRF). Improving SA’s competitiveness Science and Technology Minister Naledi Pandor has announced that a total of 60 new research chairs will be awarded to universities across South Africa over the next three years. In awarding the 60 new chairs, special consideration was given to the country’s universities of technology, rural-based institutions, and those that have not yet participated in the programme. The thematic areas in which the chairs have been awarded are a direct response to the five priorities of government, namely the creation of decent work and sustainable livelihoods, education, health, rural development, and the fight against crime and corruption. The South African Research Chairs Initiative (SARChI) is a flagship initiative of the government, designed to attract and retain excellence in research and innovation in South African science.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Wet spring and persistent rain in many areas of Ohio have generated highly variable harvesting conditions for 2015 in both soybeans and corn. There are maturity, height, and expected yield differences within many fields that will bring about the importance of combine adjustments but also yield monitoring management, in particular calibration.The adoption of data services continues to increase across the United States and here in Ohio. At the heart of these data services is the utilization of yield maps to help understand end-of-year performance within fields but also to characterize in-field variability in order for these service providers to deliver prescriptions, recommendations, or other information back to the farmer.Since yield maps continue to be an important data layer to learn from and help drive changes or decisions at a field level, proper management of the yield monitor in 2015 will be key in order to generate accurate and reliable yield data. The expectation is that grain moisture and test weight, along with grain flow through the combine, will vary within passes and across the field. Therefore, the flow and moisture sensors on combines must be calibrated to these expected conditions in order to log accurate data. The following best practice guidelines provide pre-harvest and harvest yield monitor tips. Pre-harvest1. Turn on your display and back-up all prior yield monitor data. Save this data to a secure data storage device and properly label the file directory so you easily recognize what the back-up files signify within the directory.2. Ensure the display, DGPS receiver, and other components have all been updated to their most recent software versions. Contact your dealer or look online to determine the most recent versions released by manufacturers.3. Start-up combine and turn on display to check that the:• Display indicates everything is functioning correctly or properly connected.• GPS receiver is providing a position and has differential correction.Note: If purchasing a differential correction service, make sure your subscription runs through harvest.4. Check wiring for damage and that all connections are tight as you service the combine.5. Check the moisture sensor for debris build-up or damage plus clean the housing of any old grain. The fins on the moisture sensor must be absolutely clean and not bent.6. Check for damage or wear on the mass flow sensor (top of the clean grain elevator). This point is especially important on late model combines equipped with yield monitors as the wear on these plates influences mass flow measurements. Replace worn mass flow plates. For combines that use optical sensors for yield determination (mounted on the side of the clean grain elevator), make sure they are clean and not damaged. Calibration at harvest• If you have replaced any yield monitor components or the clean grain elevator, recalibration is required. Old calibration numbers will not work since changes in how grain impacts or interacts with sensors influence the readings and thereby yield calculations.If you purchase a new or used combine with an existing yield monitor installed, double check for proper installation and plan to re-calibrate. Grain carts equipped with scales can be used for calibrating yield monitors but consider:1) Make sure they are correctly weighing loads. Cross reference with scale tickets or weights from a certified scales.2) Stop on level ground for a few seconds to determine load weight. Calibrating over the low to high flow rates will be critical.You need to take the time to calibrate the mass flow or volumetric sensors over the full range. Though calibration, in particular at low flow rates, can take time it is a must to collect quality yield data. The ability of the yield monitor to collect accurate yield data from low to high flow conditions will dictate the quality of the resulting maps.Many older yield monitors may have 1- or 2-point calibration procedures. For these systems, you can have different calibration numbers for low, medium and high flows through the combines. Match the calibration number to the field conditions.For those yield monitors with multi-point calibration procedures, use the recommended four to six calibration loads. These loads will be captured over varying grain flows (low to high) by either changing ground speed or cut width as outlined in the operator manual. Rules of thumb on managing calibration numbers:1) Corn and soybeans require separate mass flow calibration.2) You need a different calibration for high moisture corn (more than 20%) versus lower moisture corn.3) You need a different calibration for “green” versus dry stem soybeans.4) Grain test weight can influence mass flow sensors so again, you might need to manage different calibration numbers as test weight differs by two or more values between fields.5) Double check calibration routinely for a crop and operating conditions.6) Remember to calibrate grain moisture sensor for each crop.7) Calibrate temperature sensor for those requiring this step.Finally, take good notes on field and operating conditions during harvest. These can be helpful when reviewing yield maps post-harvest and explaining reasons for possible yield results within fields. Notes and pictures can be important for on-farm research projects during post-harvest evaluation. Having good notes as well as proper calibration in 2015 will result in quality yield data that can be successfully used within analysis and learning.
Worcestershire’s Ross Whiteley became the sixth male cricketer to hit six sixes in an over when he achieved the feat in Sunday’s Natwest T20 Blast match against Yorkshire at Headingley.The 28-year-old clobbered left-arm spinner Karl Carver six times over the rope in the 16th over to join a select group that includes Garfield Sobers, Ravi Shastri, Herschelle Gibbs, Yuvraj Singh and Lancashire’s Jordan Clark, who achieved it in a second-team game against Yorkshire.”It was the right time in the game for me to go for it. It was all or nothing,” Whiteley said.”Unfortunately for the bowler it was a short boundary on the leg-side.”I hit the first out of the screws and needed to keep going for the team, not for that achievement. It’s something I never really thought I’d do in professional cricket.”Despite Whiteley’s heroics, Worcestershire lost by 37 runs.

Manchester: Manchester City have a one-point advantage over rivals Liverpool going into the final six games of the Premier League season but a tougher set of fixtures means Pep Guardiola’s side will have to be at their very best to defend their title. Liverpool’s home game with Chelsea on April 14 is their only meeting with a top-six team during the run-in and half of their games are against sides in the bottom five of the league, starting with a trip to 16th-placed Southampton on Friday. Should City, who have won their last eight games in the league, extend that run until the end of the season they will win the title again. Yet two of their fixtures stand out as absolutely crucial to deciding the outcome of what promises to be a thrilling battle. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhCity, who play four of their last six away from home, host Spurs at the Etihad on April 20, a game which comes after a two-legged Champions League quarter-final between the pair. Then the Manchester derby at Old Trafford on April 24 offers Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United side the chance to ruin the ambitions of their local rivals. It is such a tight race that even a normally acceptable result, a draw at Manchester United could be enough to tip the balance in favour of Juergen Klopp’s side. Yet there have rarely been title run-ins without some surprises. There is an argument that playing against teams scrapping desperately against relegation is tougher, at this stage of the campaign, than taking on mid-table sides with little to motivate them.
