Mike Lutmer, July 11

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest I am getting ready to jump in the hay rake and rake 40 acres or so, then go bale up some straw, then go bale some hay. We’ve got some second cutting getting hay ready to cut that looks beautiful.We are all done with wheat. We had some wheat that ran 90 bushels an acre and some that did 30 where it got drowned out. Where we didn’t have so much water, the wheat was really good.We are working on getting the corn topdressed with nitrogen. I am running my Miller with drops on it through my earlier stuff. I would rather put the N on right before pollination than when it is 18 inches tall. I think it makes a huge difference. If you knife it in when it is small and come back before pollination you can cut your rates and you don’t have as much risk of losing it. I think it pays dividends.Corn is looking good and the beans have really come on. It will be a good thing if we get the rains they are calling for this week. The only downside is that every time it rains the market takes a hit.I have double-crop beans up and they are all in but one little patch that I am debating about putting in. There are a few places that look pretty dry, but we have been fortunate that we have gotten some of the showers and for the most part everything looks pretty good.Beans are growing like mad. They have some grass starting to really roll up in them, though. We have a few places we want to get sprayed. Everybody has had a problem with marestail and we are looking at what to do about that for next year. We ended up working some ground because of marestail problems this spring. Other than that, things look pretty good.last_img read more

Tagalog NPA The Pirates secured the No. 1 seed and a first finals appearance since joining the league in 2011, after a gutsy 107-105 double-overtime victory over the defending champion Red Lions at a jam-packed Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.Mike Nzeusseu drilled two free throws with 12.7 seconds remaining in the second overtime to punctuate a 27-point performance, before the Pirates collectively foiled Robert Bolick’s final attempt, completing a historic 18-0 sweep of the elimination round.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“We just told them the more minutes that we stay on the floor, the more people we will inspire,” said Lyceum coach Topex Robinson after the game.When the buzzer sounded, the Pirates whooped it up on the court while JC Marcelino climbed the bleachers to celebrate with the Lyceum faithful as the Intramuros-based school ended a six-year wait for a championship appearance. There was no stopping Lyceum’s march to history in NCAA Season 93. Not a San Beda squad that showed its championship pedigree in the biggest game of the season so far. And certainly not a controversial call that nearly spoiled the Pirates’ bid to stay perfect.ADVERTISEMENT After bungling the final play in regulation, Perez atoned for the miscue by scoring on an off-balanced shot with 4.7 ticks left in the first overtime to put the Pirates ahead, 97-96, but JC Marcelino was slapped with a dubious foul while defending Bolick at the backcourt. Bolick split his foul shots to send the game to a second overtime.The Pirates and Lions traded big shots with both squads holding their ground up until Nzeusseu, the 6-foot-6 Cameroonian center, calmly sank the free throws that proved to be the difference between the two teams.“We know that there is so much fight in them (San Beda),” said Robinson. “There is so much tradition with San Beda, with coach Boyet (Fernandez).“We just told these guys to keep on playing, keep on believing in themselves, and just keep on grinding. We have to really play our very best, and no matter what happens in this game, it’s a win for us because when you survive those kinds of games, it’s gonna carry on to the next game.”The Pirates will wait for the survivor of the stepladder semifinals, which will now have five teams after San Sebastian drubbed Perpetual Help, 80-60, later in the day to capture the fourth seed.

It’s really a dedication game for all of us.”Robinson tried his best to deflect credit for what has been a historic campaign, but his players feel their coach deserves more than he has been getting.CJ Perez, who scored 20 points, pointed to Robinson as his own hero.“Actually, I thought about him as my hero,” Perez said, referring to Robinson. “He was getting mad at me because I kept on looking at him, but I thought about him and the trust that he gave me.”ADVERTISEMENT QC cops nab robbery gang leader, cohortlast_img read more

Stake your claim, before others stake theirs,” he encouraged.For her part, Minister of State in the Ministry of Industry, Investment and Commerce, Hon. Sharon Ffolkes-Abrahams, emphasised that Jamaica should connect into the Diaspora communities, so as to benefit from their insights and market intelligence.“It is our firm intention to engage our Diaspora into the far reaching initiative that holds so much promise for our economy, for our standard of living and for our future and generations yet unborn,” Mrs. Ffolkes-Abrahams said.She pointed out that the platform of the Biennial conference will afford the Industry Ministry the opportunity to explain in greater details, the promise and features of the Jamaica Logistics Hub initiative, and to win the support and active engagement of the Diaspora.Meanwhile, Minister of State in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Hon. Arnaldo Brown, said the Diaspora is a significant market into which Jamaica must tap.“We have not tapped into its full potential, and the purpose of this conference this year, is to ensure that all Jamaicans everywhere understand that (the country) is open to do business and that Jamaica is a place for significant opportunities,” Mr. Brown said.The conference, which has been re-branded to focus on trade and investment, will be held under the theme: ‘Nation on a Mission: Jamaica – Diaspora Partnership for Development’.The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which is organising the event, is seeking to attract between 350 and 500 participants, and efforts have been made to reach Jamaicans who reside in other Caribbean islands.CONTACT: LATONYA LINTONlast_img read more

Sprint TMobile end merger talks

first_imgNEW YORK, N.Y. – Wireless carriers Sprint and T-Mobile called off a potential merger, saying the companies couldn’t come to an agreement that would benefit customers and shareholders.The two companies have been dancing around a possible merger for years, and were again in the news in recent weeks with talks of the two companies coming together after all. But in a joint statement Saturday, Sprint and T-Mobile said they are calling off merger negotiations for the foreseeable future.“The prospect of combining with Sprint has been compelling for a variety of reasons, including the potential to create significant benefits for consumers and value for shareholders. However, we have been clear all along that a deal with anyone will have to result in superior long-term value for T-Mobile’s shareholders compared to our outstanding stand-alone performance and track record,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile US, in a prepared statement.T-Mobile and Sprint are the U.S.’ third- and fourth-largest wireless carriers, respectively, but they are significantly smaller than AT&T and Verizon, who effectively have a duopoly over U.S. wireless service. The two companies have said they hoped to find a way of merging to make the wireless market more competitive.Sprint and its owner, the Japanese conglomerate SoftBank, have long been looking for a deal as the company has struggled to compete on its own. But Washington regulators have frowned on a possible merger. D.C. spiked AT&T’s offer to buy T-Mobile in 2011 and signalled in 2014 they would have been against Sprint doing the same thing. But with the new Trump administration, it was thought regulators might be more relaxed about a merger.Sprint has a lot of debt and has posted a string of annual losses. The company has cut costs and made itself more attractive to customers, BTIG Research analyst Walter Piecyk says, but it hasn’t invested enough in its network and doesn’t have enough airwave rights for quality service in rural areas.T-Mobile, meanwhile, has been on a yearslong streak adding customers. After the government nixed AT&T’s attempt to buy it in 2011, T-Mobile led the way in many consumer-friendly changes, such as ditching two-year contracts and bringing back unlimited data plans. Consumers are paying less for cellphone service, thanks to T-Mobile’s influence on the industry and the resultant price wars.“T-Mobile does not need a merger with Sprint to succeed, but Sprint might need one to survive,” Piecyk wrote in an October research note.last_img read more
