first_imgExperienced campaigner Richard ‘Spoon’ McCallum has retired as goalkeeper of Red Stripe Premier League club Waterhouse FC. He is now acting general secretary at the Drewsland-based club. “I have retired because of personal reasons, to pursue a bachelors degree in production and operation,” said McCallum, who stood between the sticks at Waterhouse for 12 years, during an interview with The Gleaner yesterday. “The club was notified two months ago, and it is effective as at December 31, 2015,” he added. McCallum was approached to take up a position as general secretary, at the club because Felix Porter has vacated the post due to health reasons. “The club (Waterhouse) approached me to be acting general secretary, and I duly accepted the post,” McCallum informed. He said the players in the senior team at the club expressed regrets with him leaving at this time. “I spoke to the players, and some have expressed regrets and want me to delay the decision, but I have to think about life after football. I can’t continue to focus on goalkeeping and school at the same time,” McCallum said. McCallum also represented Invaders FC for one year and Seba (now Montego Bay United) for three years, before journeying from St James to St Andrew. He made his international debut for Jamaica in 2006, and also represented the country at the Under-17, Under-20 and Under-23 levels.last_img read more

Background image courtesy of Jonny Ross, Flickr) • South Africa’s justice system • Oscar and the photo of the witness • Pistorius trial: open justice or trial by media? • A media guide to the Oscar Pistorius trial • The media and open justiceLucille DavieParalympian Oscar Pistorius, in court for allegedly murdering his girlfriend of four months, Reeva Steenkamp, on 14 February 2013, is represented by senior council Barry Roux.Roux, an advocate for more than 30 years, is a formidable legal eagle, known for wearing witnesses down. In Pistorius’s bail application in the weeks after the Steenkamp’s death, Roux grilled police detective, Hilton Botha, who cracked under relentless questioning, admitting that his facts were doubtful, and that Pistorius would not be a flight risk. Pistorius’s bail was secured at R1-million and Roux convinced the court to relax some of its strict bail conditions a month later.The first witness to be called in the Pistorius trial, Michelle Burger, took the stand for a day and a half, and withstood repeated grilling by Roux, bravely sticking to her story under pressure. Subsequent witnesses have endured his persistent questioning, with Pistorius’s former girlfriend, Samantha Taylor, breaking down in tears twice during her testimony, with the court having to have a recess to allow her to recover.Roux was admitted to the Bar in 1982. His practice comprises criminal, insurance, delictual, aviation, matrimonial, medical negligence, general contractual and liquidation work.He has had some high profile clients, defending South Africa-based businessman, Dave King, who had had the highest unpaid tax bill ever, at R2.3-billion. The bill was reduced to R700-million. Roux also represented Johannesburg Consolidated Investments chairman, Brett Kebble, now deceased, on charges of tax evasion. The charges were withdrawn in 2007.Mannie Witz, an advocate with the Bridge Group at the Johannesburg Bar, says of Roux: “He is a very experienced criminal lawyer, and quite a likeable fellow.” Witz says he has worked with Roux over the past 35 years. Roux has been a South African Police Services advocate for many years, and still takes on the bigger criminal cases for them. “He is very, very professional, and very competent,” adds Witz.Roux is a hardworking but private person, says Witz, and a gentleman and a family man. “He is always very well prepared, and a very decent guy.”Roux is a member of the Advocates Group 21, a professional body of 101 advocates who practise in the High Courts and other courts of South Africa and neighbouring countries.“Our members are committed to the highest standards of a professional and ethical legal practice, and are equally committed to transformation initiatives internally, and at the Johannesburg Bar, to ensure that the practice remains highly esteemed and legitimate,” indicates the organisation’s website.Members of the group practise in all the fields of law traditionally dealt with by advocates, including constitutional law and human rights, labour law, criminal law, matrimonial matters, banking law, company law, liquidations, aviation law and intellectual property. Services rendered include litigation, mediation and arbitration, attending enquiries and commissions, and appearing in all forums generally permitted by the rules of conduct set by the Bar, including as the presiding officials at hearings.“The Group has actively sought to transform the bar and to help redress the imbalances of the past. It has a dedicated fund aimed at ensuring that new and previously disadvantaged members get access to quality work and clients.”last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By John Schoenhals, Pioneer Field Agronomist in northern OhioFungicide applications to corn and soybeans is an important management practice in an “average” year, but what about in 2019, a yearJohn Schoenhals, Pioneer Field Agronomist in northern Ohioin which many corn and soybean acres were planted much later than normal? To answer this question, it is important to understand the role and function of fungicides.Leaves serve as a “factory” for the plant, collecting sunlight and carbon dioxide to produce sugars used for grainfill. Healthy leaves produce sufficient amounts of sugars to meet grainfill needs as well as support plant health.When plant diseases are present, the efficiency of this factory is reduced. If the demand for sugars is greater than what an unhealthy plant can produce, grain yield is reduced and overall plant health will rapidly decline as cannibalization of stalks takes place.When fungicide applications occur, the leaf “factory” is protected from further disease development for a period of at least two to three weeks. Fungicides don’t necessarily add bushels; rather, fungicides preserve yield potential, protecting against yield loss due to diseases. In addition, fungicides can improve harvest standability by allowing plants to remain healthy and not cannibalize stalks at the end of the season.The two corn diseases that consistently pose the greatest risk in Ohio are gray leaf spot (GLS) and northern corn leaf blight (NCLB). These diseases overwinter in residue, which provide a new source of infection every year. Other potential diseases include southern rust, when storm systems blow spores from the south, and tar spot, a relatively new disease found in northwest Ohio in 2018. Tar spot can survive in residue and likely will become a disease of increasing importance in Ohio.When considering fungicide applications to corn, scout fields to get a sense of what is already taking place. Since common pathogens survive in corn residue, no-till systems and corn-on-corn situations will be higher risk areas. In addition, determine the disease ratings of the corn hybrids you have planted, especially for GLS and NCLB. Hybrids with low resistance scores should be prioritized for fungicide applications. Most companies do not yet have scores for tar spot, but your seed supplier may be able to help you with management considerations.The ideal time to apply fungicides to corn for maximum protection is near tasseling/silking (VT/R1). Carefully read product labels, as the use of adjuvants may cause crop and ear damage. For soybeans, applications at the R3 stage, beginning pod development, will provide the best results.Pioneer has conducted over 1,400 on-farm corn fungicide trials since 2007. These studies have shown an average 8.3-bushel per acre increase in corn yields when fungicides are used, with a positive yield response 82% of the time. In soybeans, a fungicide and insecticide application has been shown to average a 5.3-bushel per acre response, with 94% positive yield results.So, with all that in mind, should fungicide applications be made to late-planted corn? As with many things, the best answer is “it depends.” Late planting means grainfill will extend through September and into October. Disease pressure is expected to be more severe due to moderate temperatures, heavy dews, and plenty of disease inoculum building throughout the season.In cases where later-planted corn has high yield potential, and especially if susceptible hybrids were planted and disease is already present, fungicide applications at the proper time will be expected to provide a positive economic response both in terms of yield and stalk quality/standability.In some cases, fungicides result in higher harvest moisture, due to improved plant health preventing premature plant death. Across Pioneer fungicide trials, fungicide resulted in an average grain moisture only 0.39% wetter than untreated. Even if moisture is greater this year due to late maturity of the crop, there are still expected advantages to fungicide applications.While 2019 continues to provide plenty of challenges for Ohio growers, well-planned fungicide applications should still be considered as part of an overall management plan for both corn and soybeans.last_img read more
