Watch: The humpback is back for an amazing encounter with fishermen

first_imgA local fishing crew caught a lot more than they bargained for when they caught a glimpse of a humpback whale in Donegal Bay on Tuesday.The mighty creature was spotted off South Donegal among schools of dolpins and bluefin tuna.The whale wasn’t shy either, as it surfaced only a few feet away from the fishing boat. The amazing marine moment was caught on camera and shared by the Donegal Irish Whale and Dolphin Group, but viewers are advised that the video contains expletives:Video: Donegal IWDGThese events follow another sighting of a humpback whale off St John’s Point on Sunday. Sightings are expected around the Irish coast at this time of year as whales come to their seasonal feeding grounds. However, two whales in Kerry baffled researchers after returning to the region together 20 years after their first recorded sighting.The Donegal branch of IWDG advised that there is a good chance of seeing the humpbacks off the north west coast at St John’s Point, Sliabh Liag and Carrick. If you do see the whales, the public is asked to report all sightings to the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group. Watch: The humpback is back for an amazing encounter with fishermen was last modified: September 26th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare 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:CoastfishHumpback WhaleMarinelast_img read more

QPR round-up: R’s unable to land winger, Barnsley want Kpekawa, Lumley set for loan move

first_imgQPR have missed out on the signing of Swansea City winger Modou Barrow.The 23-year-old Gambian was among Rangers’ top summer targets and the club were initially optimistic they would be able to take him on loan.However, Swansea stalled over a potential deal when he impressed during pre-season, forcing his way into their first team for the start of the new campaign.And with Barrow having also impressed in the Welsh club’s opening couple of Premier League matches, Rangers now accept he will not be joining them.Meanwhile, Barnsley have made an offer for QPR defender Cole Kpekawa.And Rangers have signed goalkeeper Seny Dieng after development squad keeper Conor Hudnott was ruled out for around six months with a shoulder injury.The Swiss 21-year-old was a free agent, having left German club MSV Duisburg at the end of last season.The signing means QPR can send goalkeeper Joe Lumley out on loan in the coming days.Lumley, 21, had been lined up for a loan move to Gillingham but that deal now appears unlikely to go through.Rangers are now looking at other options as they are keen for Lumley to pick up more first-team experience.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Keep scouting for potato leafhoppers in alfalfa

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Rory Lewandowski, CCA, Mark Sulc, Kelley Tilmon, Ohio State University ExtensionIf you grow alfalfa, now is the time to scout those fields for potato leafhoppers. Integrated pest management (IPM) scouts are finding potato leafhoppers (PLH) widely distributed across a number of alfalfa fields. PLH numbers have ranged from low to well above economic treatment thresholds. In addition, alfalfa growers have been calling about yellow leaves on alfalfa, one of the classic PLH damage symptoms. Alfalfa growers should consider regular field scouting for PLH because this is one of the economically significant pests of alfalfa.The potato leafhopper is a small bright green wedge shaped insect that arrives in our area each year on storm fronts from the Gulf Coast region. PLH is a sucking insect. PLH feeding causes stunting of alfalfa plants resulting in yield loss. Excessive stress on plants by heavy PLH feeding can result in yield reductions in the current as well as subsequent cuttings. A common symptom of PLH feeding is a wedge-shaped yellowing of leaf tips. If you are noticing these symptoms, some damage has been done. Regular scouting can help to detect PLH earlier and determine if there is a need for a rescue treatment.Scouting involves the use of a sweep net. There is no other way to properly and accurately scout for PLH. The procedure is to take three to five samples for each 25 acres from random areas within the field. One sample consists of 10 pendulum sweeps. After the 10-sweep sample, carefully inspect the net contents and count the number of PLH adults and nymphs. For non-PLH resistant alfalfa varieties, treatment is warranted if the number of PLH adults and nymphs is equal to or greater than the average height of the alfalfa in inches.An OSU Extension fact sheet on PLH is available on-line at https://ohioline.osu.edu/factsheet/ENT-33. A short video clip on how to scout for PLH and use a sweep net to sample for PLH is available at http://tiny.cc/PLHscouting featuring Mark Sulc, OSU Extension Forage Specialist.last_img read more

PM Calls on Nation to Build Society Characterized by Excellence

first_imgPrime Minister, the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller has called on Jamaicans to build a quality society characterized by excellence noting that “Jamaica cannot maximize its potential for greatness and achieve what we need in the next 50 years without sustained hard work.”Speaking to hundreds of persons gathered at Emancipation Park in New Kingston on Sunday (March 24) for the Prime Minister’s Youth Awards for Excellence, the Prime Minister said the nation’s youth’s represent our future and “this is the beginning of the next leg of the journey in keeping with the theme, ‘Youth on a Mission…Project 2062.’” “As I look at the nominees and awardees, I feel a deep sense of pride. Through your actions, you our nominees and awardees have said loudly and distinctly that you have a lot to offer this country. You are among the significant Jamaicans who have been making a valuable contribution at home and abroad. You have imagined a life of achievement, a life of excellence and have refused to accept mediocrity. You have refused to believe that because circumstances were hard and obstacles were in the way that you could not fulfill your dreams to pursue them meaningfully. You have refused to place limits on yourselves” Mrs. Simpson Miller highlighted. Reflecting on the confidence of the nation’s forefathers which saw the overthrowing a system that mocked human decency, Mrs. Simpson Miller said this confidence has a long lineage. She implored the audience to carry it onto 2062 and beyond. The Prime Minister called on the nominees and awardees to let their accomplishments serve as an inspiration to other young persons and the nation emphasizing that “your excellence is not an act, it is a habit, it is a way of life.” The Prime Minister’s Youth Awards for Excellence was instituted in 1998 to recognize the accomplishments of the Jamaican young people and are presented annually to young persons who have distinguished themselves locally, regionally and internationally. At Sunday’s function, awards were presented in the areas of Sport; International Achievement; Academics; Leadership; Arts and Culture; Journalism; Youth in Service; Entrepreneurship and Agriculture. The 2011 nominees and awardees were also recognized at the function. Communications Unit-OPMTel: 926-0244Fax: 920-4684Email: [email protected]: www.opm.gov.jmlast_img read more
