Finn Harps denied first League win by late Coughlan penalty

first_imgRonan Coughlan’s last-minute penalty denied Finn Harps a first League win of the season tonight.Sligo Rovers 1 Finn Harps 1Sean Boyd’s first-half header had Harps in front and, seemingly, on their way to a rare win, only for them to be dashed at the death. The draw does, at least, end a losing sequence that had reached a club record tenth game on Monday, but there was no doubt that Coughlan’s goal came as a dagger to Harps’ hearts.Daniel O’Reilly was adjudged by referee Ben Connolly to have fouled Coughlan. O’Reilly was given his marching orders, via a second yellow card, and Coughlan fired the penalty beyond Harps ‘keeper Peter Burke to earn a point.Harps had led from the 42nd minute when Boyd – on loan from Shamrock Rovers – got on the end of a John Kavanagh cross to head past Mitchell Beeney.Earlier, O’Reilly headed at Beeney from a cross by Mark Russell, while Tony McNamee and Caolan McAleer had chances for the visitors. Harps belied their standing as the Premier Division’s bottom side in the first half and the goal was a deserved one for Ollie Horgan’s side.They didn’t have it all their own way and Ronan Murray fired wide for the hosts.Harps included Mark Anthony McGinley as their substitute goalkeeper tonight.Sligo thought they had levelled when Romeo Parkes had the ball in the net, but the celebrations were cut short by an offside flag.Soon after, Ballybofey man Johnny Dunleavy was thwarted by Burke and, at the other end, Beeney saved from McAleer. Burke denied Parkes and Harps looked to have done enough – but they were undone in the final moments.Sligo Rovers: Mitchell Beeney, Johnny Dunleavy, Dante Leverock, John Mahon, Lewis Banks, Sam Warde (Kris Twardek, 76), David Cawley, Niall Morahan (Daryl Fordyce, 55), Ronan Murray (Regan Donelon, 46), Ronan Coughlan, Romeo Parkes.Finn Harps: Peter Burke, John Kavanagh, Sam Todd, Niall Logue, Daniel O’Reilly, Mark Russell (Keith Cowan, 67), Mark Coyle, Raffaele Cretaro (Nathan Boyle, 71), Tony McNamee (Jacob Borg, 83), Caolan McAleer, Sean Boyd.Referee: Ben Connolly.

ODNR continues plan to monitor deer for Chronic Wasting Disease

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Portions of Holmes and Wayne counties will retain their designation as Disease Surveillance Area (DSA) 2015-01 again this year as part of the state’s ongoing Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) surveillance efforts, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). This designation requires that additional rules be followed by deer hunters in this area.Since October 2014, 19 captive white-tailed deer have tested positive for CWD at a shooting preserve and a breeding facility in Holmes County. Since that time, ODNR Division of Wildlife staff have tested hundreds of wild deer with the cooperation of hunters and local landowners. CWD has not been detected in the nearly 1,000 wild deer tested from DSA 2015-01.The DSA includes the areas within a 6-mile radius from the CWD positive samples in Holmes County and includes: all of Franklin and Clinton townships in Wayne County, and Ripley, Prairie, Salt Creek, Monroe, Hardy, Berlin, Killbuck and Mechanic townships in Holmes. In addition, the northeast portion of Richland Township (defined by the boundary of Township Road 36 to State Route 520 to Township Road 31 to U.S. Route 62) in Holmes County falls within DSA 2015-01. This DSA designation will remain in effect at least through the 2017 deer season. The area will be mapped and posted on the division’s website at wildohio.gov.The following regulations apply within the DSA:Requires hunters to bring deer harvested within the DSA to an ODNR Division of Wildlife inspection station for CWD testing during the seven-day gun, two-day gun and muzzleloader seasons. Inspection stations will NOT be operated during the two-day youth season;Prohibits the placement of or use of salt, mineral supplement, grain, fruit, vegetables or other feed to attract or feed deer within the DSA boundaries;Prohibits hunting of deer by the aid of salt, mineral supplement, grain, fruit, vegetables or other feed within the DSA boundaries; andProhibits the removal of a deer carcass killed by a motor vehicle within the DSA boundaries unless the carcass complies with deer carcass regulations. Additional information on carcass regulations can be found at wildohio.gov.Normal agricultural activities including feeding of domestic animals as well as hunting deer over food plots, naturally occurring or cultivated plants and agriculture crops are not prohibited.Hunters harvesting deer within the DSA are required to bring their deer to a carcass inspection station for disease testing. Two locations have been designated as Carcass Inspection Stations for the seven-day gun, two-day gun and muzzleloader seasons. Both locations will be open and staffed from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. The dates for these seasons are: Nov. 28-Dec. 4, Dec. 17-18 and Jan. 7-10.Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) garage, 1800 South Washington Street, Millersburg, 44654Industrial Park, 8254 County Road 245, Holmesville, 44633Hunters, including landowners, will be asked to provide their confirmation number from the game check process as well as the location where the deer was killed (property address or nearest road intersection). Tissue samples and biological data will be collected. The process should take no more than 10 minutes, however, delays are likely at lunch and immediately after dark. Hunters are strongly encouraged to complete the game check process before bringing their deer to the inspection station. However, division staff will be able to assist with checking deer.Hunters who harvest a deer and wish to have it mounted or caped are required to bring their deer to a carcass inspection station. Samples will not be taken, however, arrangements will be made to collect tissue at a later date.last_img read more

Formula One returns to France after 10-year absence

first_imgThe French Formula One Grand Prix will return in 2018 after a 10-year absence with the race scheduled to take place at the Circuit Paul Ricard in southern France, regional politician Christian Estrosi said on Monday.”We and those who are with me are very proud…it’s a great victory,” Estrosi told reporters.Named after the local pastis alcohol magnate who financed it, and also known as Le Castellet, the track last hosted a grand prix in 1990. The country’s most recent Formula One race was at Magny-Cours, in central France, in 2008.France hosted the first recognised grand prix near Le Mans in 1906, and was also part of the first world championship season in 1950 with a race at Reims.The five-year deal was agreed with the Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur (PACA) region in association with the city of Toulon, department of Var and the French motorsport association (FFSA).PACA president Estrosi, an ex-mayor of Nice and a former car and motorcycle racer who finished fourth in the 1978 French 500cc Grand Prix at Nogaro, said the event was likely to happen in the European summer.He declined to say how much it had cost to bring back motor racing’s elite competition, but said the contract was in the normal price range for a grand prix in Europe.”Losing the grand prix left a real scar on the country,” Estrosi said.Germany has been axed from the 2017 calendar for financial reasons, despite the country having world champions in dominant Mercedes, but Hockenheim still has a contract to host the loss-making race in 2018.advertisementLe Castellet, which features the long Mistral straight, has been fully renovated and is now owned by Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone’s family trust.The Briton told Reuters last week that the trust was not involved in the race and would be leasing the facility to “the people that are going to be the promoters.”France currently has two drivers on the starting grid, Romain Grosjean and Esteban Ocon, while French manufacturer Renault has its own team and provides engines to former champions Red Bull and Toro Rosso.The showcase Monaco Grand Prix, a few hours’ drive from Le Castellet, has been a fixture on the calendar since 1950 and the closest thing to a home race for French drivers in recent years.last_img read more

NatGeo Measures its Carbon Footprint

first_imgNational Geographic, along with Verso Paper, Quad/Graphics and Harmony Environmental, recently completed a “cradle-to-grave” study to measure the magazine’s carbon footprint.The study caps a process initiated two years ago when National Geographic approached Verso to explore the idea. A year’s worth of planning between 2007 and 2008 was retooled to initiate a new test specifically for the plant that makes the paper for the magazine.”We were reluctant to wait for a new study to be completed,” said Hans Wegner, VP of production services at National Geographic, in a statement. “However, we were convinced there were enough significant differences mill-to-mill and grade-to-grade to warrant the undertaking of a separate study of our paper made at Verso’s Androscoggin, Maine mill in order to obtain accurate information.” Not content to simply measure the emissions from the paper mill, National Geograhic and Verso brought in the magazine’s printer, Quad/Graphics, to participate as well, giving the study a broader and more detailed look at the entire production process.The study measured the planting and harvesting of trees, paper manufacturing and printing, and the magazine’s delivery and disposal.Harmony Environmental independently compiled and analyzed the data, which revealed that 1.27 pounds of CO2 equivalents are emitted to produce the paper for one issue of National Geographic. Add in printing, distribution and the rest of the steps necessary to bring an issue to market and the total bumps up to 1.82 pounds. That, according to Verso, is the same amount of CO2 emitted by driving about two miles in a 20-mpg car.With a total paid and verified circ of just over 5,000,000 according to the magazine’s December 2008 publisher’s statement, that equates to about  9.1 million pounds of CO2 emissions.Backpacker released a similar study in March 2008, and discovered it produced 500,000 pounds per issue in 2007. That magazine has a total paid and verified circ of about 346,000.last_img read more
