Angry York residents are lying in wait every night for unsuspecting student revellers, after the University’s Vice-Chancellor has offered a reward for information relating to “rowdy and drunken” student behaviour. Students who are successfully identified by the elderly vigilantes will face a fine of £100, with the possibility of community service and even potential expulsion from campus. The appeal for information sets out a list of “unacceptable student behaviour” including “shouting,” “dancing,” and “riding shopping trolleys at high speeds through residential areas at night.”ARCHIVE: 4th week TT 2003
The PVMBG also issued a code orange volcano observatory notice for aviation (VONA) following Thursday’s eruption. The color codes in VONA’s alert levels reflect conditions at or near a volcano. The green code indicates a normal, non-eruptive state; yellow shows signs of elevated unrest above known background levels; orange means there is heightened unrest with an increased likelihood of eruption; and red forecasts an imminent eruption with significant emission of ash into the atmosphere.Mt. Sinabung erupted again for the first time after 14 months of inactivity at 1:58 a.m. on July 8, emitting a 2,000-m-high column of ash that later spread as far as Berastagi, located some 30 km from the volcano. A second eruption occurred later at 5:18 p.m. on the same day, producing a 1,000-m-high column of ash.It was followed by a string of eruptions that produced an ash column reaching up 5,000 m on Monday.The 2,460 m mountain roared back to life in 2010 for the first time in 400 years. It erupted once more in 2013 and has remained highly active since.At least 16 people died in one of Sinabung’s eruptions in 2014. Two years later, another eruption killed seven. Topics : As of Thursday, the PVMBG still maintained the volcano’s alert status at Siaga, or level three of the four-tiered alert system. The authorities, however, have reminded the public to steer clear of a 3-kilometer radius from the crater, designated as the danger zone.Residents were further encouraged to wear a mask to protect their respiratory system and to clean their roofs of thick volcanic ash to prevent their houses from being damaged.”Those living near the riverbank must remain cautious of potential lava flow,” the PVMBG said in a statement.Read also: Public warned of more eruptions as Mt. Sinabung spews ash 5,000 meters high Mount Sinabung in Karo regency, North Sumatra, erupted again several times on Thursday, spewing out a 2,000-meter-high column of ash and smoke into the air.The first eruption was recorded at 6:07 a.m. and continued for around 11 minutes, with a 1,000-m-high column of ash moving toward the east, the southeast and the south, the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) reported.The second eruption lasted for around 20 minutes starting at 1:08 p.m. as the volcano spewed a 2,000-m-high column of ash, which blew toward the east and the southeast, the Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation Center (PVMBG) said.

Starting in all seven games for Wisconsin this season, Nick Janus recorded one goal on a penalty kick in a 3-2 loss to University of California – Irvine. Janus scored one goal last season.[/media-credit]As sophomores go, Nick Janus has exceeded most expectations laid out for him.Janus gained over 1,550 minutes of game experience as a freshman, and after putting up five points last year and earning a spot on the All-Freshman Big Ten team, he has already equaled last year’s point total in just seven games in 2011.Lining up at the center and outside midfielder spots, as well as forward, throughout the year, the coaching staff feels that Janus will anchor the offense no matter where he is playing. “The work rate and the toughness and the intangibles that he brings to our midfield – whether it’s holding the ball, whether it’s tackling for a loose ball, whether it’s dominating his opponent physically – all those bits and pieces that make a good player, we just trust him, even though he’s only a sophomore,” head coach John Trask said.Known as a workhorse by coaches for his aggressive style of play and strong work ethic, Janus has become the player coaches come to rely on in tough situations.The respect for the sophomore doesn’t end with the coaches – teammates see him as a team leader, as shown when he converted a critical penalty kick against UC Irvine. Janus said that senior forward Josh Thiermann initially stepped up to take the shot, but handed the ball over to the sophomore in return for his relentless work throughout the game.The fact that UW players selected Janus displays his teammates’ confidence in his ability to handle pressure and score in key situations.Janus impressed many Badger fans in his first year with the team, but coaches feel that his maturation, as well as the valuable experience he gained this summer, will lead him to an even greater role in 2011. This summer Janus spent several weeks playing in the Netherlands with a team of current college players and older players assembled by Bret Hall, a former professional soccer player who helped coach the 2007 U.S. Women’s National Team.Playing against four different professional teams over three weeks, Janus believes that his experience against top competition in Europe will transition to his play for the Badgers.“I learned [in Europe] that if you make a mistake, it’s like a spotlight’s shown on it, because the professional teams are so good that if you lose your mark in the box, it’s a goal,” Janus said. “You have to be on your game the entire 90 minutes; you have to be clicked in the entire 90 minutes.”A talented player who sees himself as his toughest critic, Janus isn’t simply satisfied with the additions he made to his game in Europe this summer. His coach points out that he has already seen tremendous improvement in the sophomore in ways that go beyond the box score, but Janus sees plenty of room for improvement.“One thing I really wanted to work on from last year was my fitness, and that’s something I have worked on a lot over summer, and it’s improved a lot from last year,” Janus said. “[Also] individual defending, I’m really looking to improve on that, because right now I don’t think it’s at the best it should be.”A native of Deer Park, Ill., Janus is one of several players on the UW roster from the greater Chicago area. Playing against fellow sophomore midfielder Trevor Wheeler for much of his junior career and facing off with Chris Prince and Kyle McCrudden in high school, there were already several familiar faces on the team when he joined the Badgers. As Big Ten play approaches and the team tries to gain momentum heading into the most important part of its schedule, look for Janus to take charge in key moments and lead Wisconsin’s offense. “We had to rely on [Janus] a lot last year to hold the ball, to get us up the field, which is one his strengths,” Trask said. “Something we’re working on now … is for him at times to play a little quicker in the right areas of the field, and save his special stuff for those moments in and around goal.”
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The National Pork Producers Council asked the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) for more details on its decision to remove pork from the menu at its 122 facilities.BOP pulled the pork beginning Oct. 1, the start of the new fiscal year. The move supposedly was made based on a survey of federal inmates and on costs, according to a BOP spokesman. In a letter sent in mid-October to BOP Director Charles Samuels Jr., NPPC expressed its dismay at the decision and requested a copy of the survey instrument and the results. It also questioned the cost factor, pointing out that pork prices are less than beef and nearly equal to chicken.“Pork is a very economical, nutrient-dense protein that ought to be a food option for federal prisoners, and the U.S. pork industry has a variety of products that could meet BOP’s needs,” NPPC said in its letter.Then after a week of controversy surrounding the abrupt removal of pork dishes from the national menu for federal inmates, the government put pork roast back on the prison menu.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Weather was nearly perfect for harvest the entire fall season for much of Ohio. Some parts of Ohio — particularly in the northwest — had six weeks without rain, a far contrast to the spring when it rained week after week. It was a bittersweet reminder of how fickle the weather in Ohio and the Midwest can be. Rains in early October for central and south central Ohio provided a break from a wide-open harvest during September. Winter wheat in Ohio emerged rapidly following rain totals of one to two inches which fell slow and steadily, allowing for maximum soil penetration. December CBOT wheat closed October 30 at $5.22, a weekly gain of 32 cents. This was the strongest weekly gain wheat had seen in four months.Harvest progress across Ohio and the Midwest progressed rapidly in October. U.S. harvest progress the last week of October was 75% for corn and 87% for soybeans. Ohio’s corn harvest at that time was 75% complete, a mind boggling 30% ahead of the five year average. Couple that with the absence of long truck lines for the entire harvest at some Ohio elevators, and you can quickly begin to appreciate the staggering amount of on farm grain storage that has been erected in the past 10 years. Farmers have gone to the bins in storing corn across Ohio this fall. It reminds me of a saying relayed to me from an Illinois friend, “Show me the floor, I’ll shut the door.” Producers across Ohio and the eastern Corn Belt have kept corn off the market, selling very little this fall season. They see more value down the road if they just hold their corn off the market for several months. It has resulted in unprecedented corn basis levels, unseen in my 35 plus years in the grain business.Numerous Ohio locations have a plus basis for corn as harvest is winding down. We are already fielding calls from grain merchandisers seeking corn, willing to push the basis at least a nickel at the outset. Train shipping points are often bidding more than ethanol plants. The next two months or more could be like the Wild West for corn basis levels. Strap on your gun belt and get ready. While you may have the bin door closed and even locked, keep in close contract with local merchandisers. At some point you will have to take advantage of the strong basis levels. If you offer corn just a few cents above published bids it could be a done deal very quickly. Producers during the late summer and early fall were citing the $4 mark as one where corn could start to move. Who would have thought that the strong basis levels were already yielding that $4 mark as harvest was winding down? In mid-October we were seeing corn basis levels in western Ohio at December plus 10 to 25 cents in the midst of a wide open harvest window due to great harvest weather. In the meantime, basis levels in central Ohio were December minus five to 20 cents.Soybean yields seemed to climb even higher as the harvest was drawing to a close. It was a trend well entrenched as harvest progressed across the United States. The October USDA supply and demand report pegged the U.S. soybean yield at 47.2 bushels per acre. U.S. production was estimated at 3.888 billion bushels. Soybean acres for 2015 were down 1.1 million acres from earlier estimates. The decline was not a surprise as FSA acres had been below expectations for several months. The upcoming November USDA monthly report will likely show a small yield increase for the 2015 U.S. soybean report.U.S. producers will soon be receiving roughly $4 billion in USDA payments from the 2014 crop year. Early estimates suggest producers could be receiving about $70 per acre in payments from the 2014 corn program acres. Payments will be reduced by previous budget sequester near 7%.
Speak Non-Defensively – This kind of language is an art form that usually includes speaking with a soft voice, using complaint statements that start with “I feel…” rather than “You…” statements, and garnering the listener’s trust in our ability to communicate effectively without eliciting defensiveness. “We” statements can also be helpful (e.g., “We need to start going to the gym.” or “We should talk about money issues.”). This post was published on the Military Families Learning Network Blog on September 27, 2013 The Four Don’ts The Five Do’s Using a money management calendar can be helpful for getting your finances organized with your spouse or partner. You can learn more about calendar based budgeting by viewing this web conference here.You can learn more about the 9 Skills for Successful Couple Communication here.To learn more about how to discuss finances with you family, please visit Family and Consumer Science’s MoneyWi$e. By Katie Stamper, Program Assistant and Dr. Michael S. Gutter Talking to your family about money can be a hard thing to do. Money is a taboo topic to some and others may feel discouraged to talk about something they don’t have enough of. Though it may be hard to do at first, talking about money with your family can help avoid the moo-la meltdown.When talking to your family about money, honesty is the best policy. Nothing is gained when bills or debt are not accounted for or ignored. Crunch the numbers and calculate how much debt there is and how much money is in the family’s accounts and on hand. These figures give everyone a realistic picture of the family’s finances, which is beneficial when creating a spending plan.As a family, track your expenses because every dollar adds up. Encourage one another to be accountable for what they spend. Track your expenses for a month and then create a budget for next month. When tracking your expenses you may be surprised at how frivolously money is spent, which could be used for paying down debts.Creating a family budget requires not only honesty but also flexibility. Most likely not everyone is going to agree or see eye-to-eye. If tension arises, try to create compromises instead of conflict. Compromises can be reached if everyone gives a little. The moo-la meltdown can also be avoided by creating an environment that is safe and judgment free; an environment where everyone can share their feelings, needs, and wants. After each family member has shared, create a SMART goal as family. The SMART goal should be Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timed. Creating a goal as a family can build unity and encourage future family discussions. As a family, track the progress of the goal. This is a great way to keep the discussion going and avoiding moo-la meltdowns. Consider the 9 Skills for Successful Communication:Table 1. Understanding the 9 Important Communication Skills (Adapted from Gottman 1994) Defensiveness – Feeling injured by others in response to criticism and contempt and refusing to take responsibility for personal actions. Being defensive blocks a couple’s ability to deal with an issue. Even if one partner feels completely justified in his/her actions, becoming defensive will only add to the couple’s problems. Overlearn Skills – To overlearn means to master the 8 other skills so that they remain available to you even when you are tired, stressed, or angry. Calm Down – If your heart is beating more than 90 beats-per-minute, it becomes more difficult to access the “logical” part of your brain. Disengaging from an interaction before something hurtful is said should last for at least 25 minutes or longer for a person to really calm down. Otherwise, it is easy to slip back into an emotionally charged conversation and to say things that are hurtful and damaging to the marital friendship. Validate – To validate another person we must:Listen with our eyes, ears, mind, and heart.Listen to the needs and emotions being expressed.Use bridge phrases and words such as “And then what happened?”; “How did that make you feel?”; “Really? You’re kidding?”; “What are you going to do now?”; “How can I help?”; “Uh-huh.”; “Yes/No/Why?”; etc., to let them know you are listening. Complain – Being passive and sweeping relationship issues under the rug by internalizing our complaints and emotions without expressing them will only serve to trip us up later on. Bringing up a complaint about a specific issue or behavior is actually one of the healthiest activities a couple can engage in (e.g., “When you fail to call me to let me know you are going to be late, it makes me feel like you aren’t considering my feelings and the fact that I will worry about you”). Stonewalling – Withdrawing from interactions and refusing to communicate at all. When couples refuse to communicate about their issues, the relationship becomes fragile. (Note: It is completely fair in a relationship to explain to your partner that you are overloaded emotionally and that you need to call a “Time Out” to take a break and calm down before you say something you don’t mean). Contempt – Intentional insulting, name-calling, mocking, rolling the eyes, or sneering. ReferencesHarris, V.W. (2012) 9 Important Communication Skills for Every Relationship. http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/fy1277Gottman, J.M. (1994). Why Marriages Succeed or Fail. New York: Fireside. Criticism – Attacking someone’s personality or character with accusation and blame (e.g., “You never think of anyone else,” or “How can you be so selfish?”).
