Berliners form socially-distanced human chain against racism

first_imgTopics : The capital’s human chain was slated to stretch from the world-famous Brandenburg Gate past the landmark Communist-era TV tower at Alexanderplatz and down into the ethnically diverse Neukoelln district.Organizers had registered 5,000 people to show up, while police said they were prepared for up to 20,000.Over 10,000 people gathered in Berlin under the banner of Black Lives Matter last weekend in response to the May 25 killing of African-American George Floyd in Minneapolis, and the slogan was also in evidence on banners and T-shirts Sunday.But the organizers of the latest demonstration posted a broader set of aims on their website.  ‘Responsible’ protest Their demands include better working conditions and pay for all including migrants, affordable housing, upholding asylum rights, relaunching the economy along green lines and allowing workers more say in how companies are run.”Who bears the costs of the global crisis, who will be stronger afterwards and who weaker — that’s being decided now,” Unteilbar organisers wrote.A map posted online showed how different groups had been allocated responsibility for different sections of the Berlin human chain.They ranged from political parties like the Greens and Left party to civil society groups like “Grannies against the far right” and the Fridays for Future youth climate movement.On their website, Unteilbar organizers urged sticking to “a responsible form of protest in times of pandemic and crisis”, telling participants to remain three meters apart to minimize the risk of coronavirus transmission.As the human chain got under way, stewards handed out strips of brightly colored tape cut to the right length as a guide.”We have to stand strong against racism, exclusion and discrimination. But at the weekend and in the weeks ahead, we have to be considerate and take care of one another” by minimizing virus transmission, Berlin mayor Michael Mueller told the Tagesspiegel newspaper ahead of the demonstration.center_img Thousands demonstrated in Berlin against racism and for broader fairness, including sharing the coronavirus burden, as they stretched a human chain through the German capital Sunday while keeping safe distances.Although the German Weather Service (DWD) issued a storm warning for a swathe of the country, people also turned out in other cities like Leipzig and Hamburg after a nationwide appeal from progressive movement Unteilbar (Indivisible).”Now we will decide whether we manage to put ourselves on the path to an anti-racist society of social and climate justice,” tweeted Canan Bayram, Greens party MP for Berlin’s lively central Kreuzberg district.last_img read more

Fewer Boats But Just as Much Fun for 2020 Mayor’s Cup…

first_imgWith a much smaller turnout than in previous years because of the coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 Mayor’s Cup Regatta for “Bragging Rights on the Navesink” was held July 5. Only two fleets raced, the Keel Boat Fleet and a One Design Fleet. Prior year’s races included Cruising, Optimist and 420 classes as well. The bridge race runs from the Shrewsbury River Yacht Club (SRYC) to Lewis Point. While the regatta started with a nice wind, by the return to the Oceanic Bridge, the breeze had died, forcing several racers to retire, according to SRYC. But in spite of the failing wind, all one-design boats and the finishers in the cruising fleet came in under the time limit. River Rats (Fair Haven Sailing Club) and Monmouth Boat Club provided the race committee. Carole and Joe Malik served on the committee boat and Les Hathaway, Pris Gettis and others from Monmouth Boat Club served on mark laying and safety boats. Registration was done on the water and Portsmouth handicaps were used. Jeremy Herman from Fair Haven Yacht Works took first place for the Keel Boat Fleet, with Remedy, a Merit 25 sailboat. Paul Lucyk from Monmouth Boat Club won the One Design Fleet race in an MC-Scow.

Mandela is an inspiration: Obama

first_img18 July 2012 US President Barack Obama joined millions of people around the world in wishing former South African president Nelson Mandela well on his 94th birthday on Wednesday. “Mandela’s extraordinary life and steadfast commitment to the principles of democracy and reconciliation continues to be a beacon for people of all backgrounds who strive for dignity, justice, and freedom,” Obama said in a statement. He described Mandela’s personal story as one of “unbreakable will, unwavering integrity, and abiding humility. “On a personal note, our family has been inspired by Madiba’s example, and has deeply appreciated the time we have spent with him, and his wisdom, grace and generosity of spirit,” Obama said. “By any measure, Nelson Mandela has changed the arc of history, transforming his country, continent, and the world.” In 2009, the United States joined 192 United Nations member states in the creation of Nelson Mandela International Day. On this day, people honour Madiba’s commitment to service and the betterment of communities. People across South African and around the world have honoured the call to spend 67 minutes of their time on Mandela’s birthday to better their communities and help the poor. “There is no more fitting tribute to a man who has demonstrated to the world the extraordinary power of non-violence, of tolerance, and of unwavering service to our fellow men and women,” Obama said. Meanwhile, Mandela’s home village of Qunu in the Eastern Cape was a hive of activity on Wednesday with festivities lined up to celebrate the statesman’s birthday. Mandela’s longtime friend, former US president Bill Clinton, was in Qunu on Tuesday to wish Mandela well. Source: SANews.gov.zalast_img read more

2019 Between the Rows farmers gearing up for planting

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Dylan Baer – Wood CountyMost of our farm is in Wood County. We farm a little in Henry and Hancock counties. We grow wheat, corn, beans, and a bit of alfalfa. My dad is a seed dealer. We are delivering seed right now. I bale straw too.On our farm we only plant enough wheat for what I’m going to bale. We have 220 acres of wheat this year. We had it planted in the first week of October and it looked good, not great, but good last fall. It is having a heck of a time greening up this spring. The green spots are starting to make the brown dead spots look bad. We like to topdress it in mid-April and the first chance we get we’ll get out there.We actually finished up with harvest Oct. 25. We thought we’d have the month of November to finish up with tillage. Then it started raining. We hardly got anything done. We do not have very much ready to plant.We bought enough rye cover crop to plant before all the corn acres. We planted rye for a cover crop but we didn’t get it all on. This is our second year of rye before the corn and we seeded it in September. It is about 3 inches tall and it is greening up fast. We want to get in there and kill it ahead of the corn because we don’t want it to get too big. It looks good. I can’t wait to get in there and plant it. There is no water laying on that cover crop ground anywhere.We are going to no-till some beans and we have about 200 acres of corn ground after the wheat acres last year that are ready to plant. The rest of our corn acres still need a field cultivator or something like that. We have water laying in some places. We are still gearing up for things and we have time. We’ll see if the weather holds.Nathan Brown – Highland CountyI planted three acres of beans on March 24. We had ideal weather conditions. While I had the drill out to sow some cover crops, I thought I’d throw some soybeans in the ground to see what happens. The soil temperature was in the high 30s or low 40s and the ground conditions were about ideal.They were planted into a cereal rye cover crop. If I can get the beans out of the ground, the rye may help regulate the ground temperature and keep them from getting frosted if we get a late frost. I went out on Saturday and dug some. They are actually starting to sprout. So far I’m happy with the progress. I have never planted anything that early before but there is a lot of talk about getting things out early. I have seen a few other guys trying it so I thought I’d see what happens.We still have equipment to work through before planting. We are a few weeks out on getting started. We are busy with calving.The pastures are starting to green up. We frost seeded some cereal rye in heavy traffic areas and that is starting to come up. The cows are finally starting to cut back a little on hay consumption.Cover crops at this point are really just starting to take off, especially the stuff that was planted in late November or December. I was hoping to have a little more growth at this time, but you have to be flexible with management. We may end up using more herbicides this year.It has been challenging around here. I drove from Hillsboro to Georgetown and saw a couple of fields of beans and corn still standing. Some guys will be chasing the combine with the corn planter this year.Andrew Armstrong – Clark CountyWe farm corn and soybeans in the southeast corner of Clark County. As of right now we have planters still in the shop. Some are ready to roll when the weather is perfect. We are still thinking about trying to spray some burndown, but we are waiting on the weather.We thought we had a window here this weekend and we got a little drizzle that just softened up the top and we didn’t want to risk anything. We don’t want to get in too much of a hurry but as the calendar continues to flip everyone is getting excited.We parked the combines last fall. Then the faucet turned on and it never shut off.We always aim to do some burndown around Thanksgiving, but we didn’t get a window of opportunity. We can get a lot accomplished in the matter of a couple of days, though. In 3 days we can be caught up with herbicide application. We typically are no-till. We do have a field that was systematically tiled last year. We cultivate it, plant it and chisel plow it the following fall, but we didn’t get that done. We are going to plant it rough. We try to keep everything else no-till. We don’t want to mess up the no-till.We have not done much with cover crops but if you look at some of our fields right now you may think we are into cover crops with all of the weeds that have come up. We are very interested in cover crops but we are concerned with the management. Are we going to efficiently be able to plant them and kill them? Will they pay for themselves in the future?We keep watching the weather here. We are ready to go with a moment’s notice. It will probably be toward the end of April before we start planting.Lamar Liming – Trumbull/ Mahoning CountyWe’re in Lordstown, Ohio, which is in southern Trumbull County. We have a dairy and grain farm. We milk about 60 cows and farm 700 acres. I am about 20 miles from the Pennsylvania line, just barely into the Snow Belt.We are starting to dry out, but it seems like we get dry and it rains again. Last weekend we had 2.25 inches of rain that soaked everything down. It warmed up pretty nice, though, this weekend and the grass is trying to pop. We have been trying to haul manure. It has been a real challenge trying to get manure out.Harvest was long. We finished up in December with our own crops. We did a little bit of custom work and it got into February before we finished that. There are still some crops out in the area. A week ago I still saw some beans out.All of last year was a challenge. It was a challenge getting stuff in, making hay and planting wheat. I planted about half my wheat and it looks like I’m going to burn it all off. None if it is going to make it. I think I got it planted on Oct. 18. The insurance date is Oct. 20. It just didn’t want to come out of the ground. We had so much water and freezing and ice. It was a terrible winter for wheat around here.They say dairy is going to be better in 2019. It is picking up a little bit here from what it was, but it has been very challenging. Ideally we get done planting by mid-May and then we start chopping hay. Last year we were planting corn, planting beans and chopping hay all at the beginning of June. It was hurry up and get it all done at the same time.last_img read more

Rock Chalk’s 2019 geocaching goals

first_img SharePrint RelatedThe Seanachai: Keeper of the Old Lore, Reviewer of the New CachesMay 6, 2015In “Community”5 Tricks of the Trade for Geocaching with KidsApril 29, 2014In “Community”The Geocaching Vlogger — InterviewSeptember 20, 2018In “Community” Chris (Rock Chalk) has worked at Geocaching HQ since 2014. He loves climbing and paddling for geocaches, and has gone caching in 14 countries and every U.S. state.One of the best things about geocaching is there are so many ways to play the game. It’s the same with geocaching goal setting. Goals can vary widely depending on your experience level, specific interests, and other factors. Like many geocachers, when I first began playing, I was attracted to the Fizzy Grid and 365-Day Challenge, as well as the Jasmer. Those challenges kept me motivated (and busy) for quite awhile. But if you play the game for a long time, you may find yourself searching for new goals to help direct your caching.Here are a few of the things that keep geocaching fun, fresh, and exciting for me:Challenge cachesA challenge cache requires seekers to find an associated physical cache, and to find an additional set of geocaches as defined by the challenge owner. As of this month, there are nearly 25,000 challenge caches in the world waiting to be found! I keep a lengthy list of the many challenges I’m working on, as well as bookmark lists of caches that will help me qualify for those challenges. This helps me decide which caches to attempt both in my home area and when traveling. Tools such as GSAK and Project-GC are invaluable for keeping track of progress on challenge caches.Visiting new regionsYou know how they say geocaching takes you to places you may never have visited? It’s really true when you start “collecting” countries, provinces, states, counties, and other regions. Here’s an example: while driving through California, I realized I had not found a cache in a county “near” our driving route. By “near,” I mean we only had to detour for an hour, and then hike for 20 minutes to find the cache along a desolate creek! I certainly never would have seen that place without geocaching. You will probably have similar moments if you experiment with finding caches in new regions.Achievements I’ve dreamed up for myselfDon’t let yourself be constrained by the “usual” geocaching goals. What may seem crazy to someone else might be tons of fun for you. For example, when I was working on completing my Fizzy Grid, I met someone who had completed the Fizzy Grid more than 50 times. That is, he had found at least 50 caches for all 81 fizzy grid squares. I thought that was sheer madness. Who could be so crazy to do such a thing? Well, after I completed the Fizzy Grid, I decided to keep going and try to find at least 2 caches for each grid square. Then 3. And then it just got out of hand. Today, I’m four caches away from completing the grid 50 times. Madness? Maybe. But it’s a lot of fun for me because I enjoy the Fizzy Grid. There are so many aspects of geocaching that your imagination is the only limitation to creating a goal that is especially meaningful to you!And now that you’ve learned what will motivate me in 2019, I’d love to hear about the goals that direct your geocaching!Share with your Friends:Morelast_img read more

So it is good to come here and switch on the car and be able to run,” Vettel said. “Obviously the limiting factor was the weather. I think the next two days won’t be much better but I hope next week will be.”Cold and wet conditions, which reduce the tire’s grip on the tarmac, limited driving for a second straight day with only six more test days left before the season starts in Melbourne. Even with temperatures at their highest, both Vettel and Sauber rookie Charles Leclerc spun off the track and into the gravel.Kevin Magnussen had the biggest scare of the day. The Haas driver was about to crash when he managed to regain control and skirt just alongside the barrier until returning to the track.Vandoorne’s third-best time, however, came on a faster set of tires than Verstappen. Much more worrying was that his session was cut short by a problem with the car’s exhaust that the team said it was investigating.McLaren teammate Fernando Alonso had a wheel pop off on Monday, limiting his driving time as well.The hiccups don’t bode well for a team trying to rebound after three disappointing years with Honda by changing to Renault engines.Red Bull’s fortunes turned after Daniel Ricciardo set the fastest time and clocked the most laps on Monday.Verstappen had trouble getting his car out of the garage early because of a problem identified by the team as a “minor fuel leak.”Defending champion Lewis Hamilton was scheduled to relieve Bottas at midday. But Mercedes announced after the lunch break was cancelled that Bottas would continue behind the wheel “to maximize our mileage after the poor track conditions limited running this morning.”That means Hamilton has made 25 laps in the Mercedes so far.Vettel recorded the most laps for the session with 98, four more than Bottas.

So I think we should not get into details too much because it is a bit pointless,” Vettel said. “First we try to understand the car. A lot of mileage, that is the key right now, and then later we focus on performance.”Robert Kubica, who hasn’t raced in F1 since 2010 after being badly injured in a rally crash, served as Williams’ reserve driver in the afternoon.

I don’t think I’ve ever driven in such cold conditions before in Formula One,” Bottas said. “The tires are just not made for these conditions.
