Amaryllis

Posted on by

first_imgThe showy flowers of amaryllis make an almost perfect gift. With just a little effort, this year’s practically foolproof flowers boast of countless Christmases to come, says a University of Georgia expert. “When properly cared for, an amaryllis bulb may produce flowers for many years,” said Mel Garber, an Extension Service horticulturist with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. “Quality bulbs of named varieties may produce up to six flowers on a single stalk,” Garber said. Amaryllis is truly a gift that keeps on giving. To get the most out of your amaryllis blooms this year, Garber said, give it some cool evenings (65 degrees). And water it often as soon as it starts flowering. Then, when the show’s over, cut back the flowering parts. “Remove each flower as soon as it passes its peak beauty,” Garber said. “After all the flowers on the stalk have bloomed, cut off the stalk itself two inches above the bulb.” That will prevent a drain of food from other developing flower buds or foliage, he said. But don’t cut the foliage, he said. The leaves begin to appear as the plant flowers. They’re the plant’s means of putting back the food reserves it expended in flowering. Indoors, keep the amaryllis in a southern window, Garber said. An eastern or western window is second best. Plants in a northern window may need extra light. When the danger of frost has passed, move the plant outdoors. The size and quality of the flowers next year depend greatly on how you fertilize it during the year, Garber said. “Any soluble or liquid fertilizer is satisfactory for pot plants,” he said. “But use it at half the recommended rate.” Fertilize first when the flowering starts, again when the flower stem is 6 to 8 inches tall and again right after flowering, when the old flowers and stems have been removed. Continue fertilizing at five- to six-week intervals. The new control-release fertilizers also work well, Garber said, and can be used at about half-rate in the pot. To prepare potted amaryllis for flowering next year, stop watering and feeding the plant by Oct. 1. When the foliage wilts and droops, cut it off. Then place the plant in a warm, dry place for two to three months. Don’t water or fertilize it during this time. In January, move the pot to a southern window. You may want to repot it if it has outgrown the pot. But remember, amaryllises like to be slightly root-bound. Then start watering and fertilizing again. And step back to watch a beautiful encore.

Unforgettable

first_imgThe Blue Sky Fund takes kids from Richmond’s low-income neighborhoods on a variety of outdoor excursions.It isn’t easy getting inner-city kids out of their comfort zone, but that hasn’t stopped Lawson Wijesooriya. She is the executive director of the Blue Sky Fund, a Richmond-based nonprofit dedicated to providing at-risk youth from low-income homes with opportunities to explore the outdoors through adventure sports and environmental education. A former teacher, Wijesooriya helped create the Blue Sky Fund in an effort to combine her love of the outdoors with her passion for helping the underprivileged kids she was working with on a daily basis. She lives in the same low-income neighborhood of Richmond’s East End as many of the kids in her program, and organizing her first trip consisted of going door-to-door and inviting kids from her street to go backpacking. She has won over many skeptical youngsters stuck in the metro rut who were initially reluctant to take a chance on a new experience in nature. Now, Wijesooriya has a paid staff, and she’s bringing hundreds of kids outside each month—whether it’s through a day trip to a local climbing gym, a science-based educational outing along the James River, or a wilderness trip in the Blue Ridge backcountry. “I was given the opportunity to backpack when I was young, and I know it was a huge part of my coming of age. That’s why I initially believed outdoor experiences would help kids, and why I wanted to give them similar experiences, even if they couldn’t pay for it. I grew up going to private schools that provided plenty of experiential education, and my goal is to provide as many kids as possible with a chance to learn beyond the textbooks and tests of a classroom. Getting kids outdoors involved in something that is hands-on excites them in a way that formal education does not.”“We work with public schools and provide hands-on science education by getting kids familiar with the outdoors in the local area. Every month we take 600 kids from public schools outside to get some hands-on experience, and last year we showed a 19 percent increase in mastery of their standards of learning science concepts. We believe this advanced achievement comes from having a really positive experience in nature.““We are also providing opportunities for kids to use adventure sports to gain life skills. Part of that is still our founding program, which is sending at-risk kids to summer camps, and once a month we run monthly expeditions with the kids that include local outings like day hikes and climbing trips. We also have a unity program, where we take kids on a wilderness trip every summer. It’s specifically focused on bringing together a diverse population, so we recruit high school kids from both public and private schools with affluent and low-income backgrounds and a huge racial mix. When we go out into the woods together, these kids see it as a level playing field. The kids are learning how to get along and meet challenges together, even though many of them come from very different backgrounds. I’ve learned how much of an equalizing common denominator outdoor activities can be.”“Recruitment was one of our first obstacles. In the beginning I was literally dragging some of these kids out of bed. Although now we’re starting to see the fruits of our labors, and many of our expedition trips are regularly filling up, it still isn’t always easy convincing kids that they’ll enjoy the outdoors. Asking a 14-year-old teenager to come into the woods with us and not shower for four days definitely takes some convincing. That’s okay, because it’s the business we want to be in. We understand the value that exposing kids to the outdoors will ultimately have in their lives, and that makes it all worth it. The best thing we have noticed is that once kids have experienced one of our trips, they almost always want to come back.”“When we take kids outside, I can see them connect the dots. I’ve taken kids down to the James River here in Richmond, and they’ve turned around and asked me, ‘Is this the Nile?’ Without real experience, it’s difficult for them to differentiate between what they’re learning in the classroom. It’s amazing to watch kids have that kind of transformative experience and realize what is right in their backyard.”“These experiences make kids believe they can do more than they previously thought they could. I recently watched a girl get outside of her comfort zone on a rock climbing wall. At first she was freaking out, but halfway up the wall, her expression changed, and I could tell she was thinking to herself, ‘I can do this.’”last_img read more

Euthanasia bill close to MP’s heart

Posted on by

first_imgStuff.co 12 August 2013People who have been self-determining, autonomous adults throughout their lives should have every right to choose when their time is up, MP Maryan Street says.Along with Waikato’s Voluntary Euthanasia Society, Ms Street travelled to New Plymouth yesterday to speak about her End of Life Choice Bill, which is in Parliament’s ballot box.Support towards the bill appeared strong in New Plymouth, with more than 50 people, young and old, turning out to listen and express their views.Only one attendee, with Christian views, stood up to express his disagreement with the document.The bill proposes euthanasia be open to people with terminal illness likely to cause death within 12 months, or to people with an irreversible physical or mental condition that renders their life unbearable – by their own assessment.Ms Street, a former New Plymouth Girls’ High School student, said the topic of euthanasia was a growing issue that had continued to generate much interest over the years.Similar bills have been through Parliament twice before.In 1995, one was defeated 61-29, while in 2003 another missed out by two votes.http://www.stuff.co.nz/taranaki-daily-news/news/9029192/Euthanasia-bill-close-to-MPs-heartlast_img read more

George McGinnis

Posted on by

first_imgGeorge McGinnis attended Indianapolis Washington High School from 1966-69.  His Washington High School team was the 1969 state champions in basketball.  His coach at Washington was Bill Springer who I knew personally because he was a coach at Jennings County before he went to Washinton.  From there he attended one year at Indiana University where he averaged 29.9 points per game and was named an All-American.  George then went pro with the Indiana Pacers.  He led them to back-to-back ABA championships and was the league’s MVP in 1973.Why am I giving you all of these statistics?  It is because it took almost 50 years after his time at Washington High School in Indianapolis and all of these accolades before he was named to the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.  Why is this significant?  Four other members of the Indiana Pacers are already members of this Hall of Fame and most of them played after McGinnis.  Bobby Leonard, who was George’s coach while he played for the Pacers thinks it was politics.  Leonard did not divulge what he meant by this.  I saw McGinnis play basketball, and few (if any) Indiana players were better than he was at any level.  (Information for this article came from article that appeared in the Indianapolis Star.last_img read more

Intriguing Fixtures Dominate First Midweek of New Season

Posted on by

first_imgNPFL…Match-day Two of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) is laced with plenty of intriguing fixtures today and the contest between Akwa United and Rivers United is certainly one of them.Uyo’s storied ‘Nest of Champions’, the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium is the venue for the game which holds this evening. The two sides met twice last season in the NPFL with the Pride of Rivers winning both fixtures in Port Harcourt and Uyo, respectively.Akwa United and Rivers United began the 2016/17 season in contrasting fashion with the Uyo club surprisingly losing 1-3 to newly-promoted ABS FC in Ilorin on Sunday.Things were more straightforward for Port Harcourt-based Rivers United as they claimed a 2-1 victory over El Kanemi Warriors at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium.The stakes will be extremely high on Friday as the ‘Promise Keepers’ will be eager to get off to a flyer in their first home game of the season, particularly after suffering a reverse in Ilorin on Sunday.Akwa’s Head Coach, Abdul Maikaba, has two former Rivers United stars, Aremu Afeez and Ofem Inah in his ranks as he look to topple the ‘Pride of Rivers’ on Wednesday with the duo almost certain to provide ‘inside information’ about the workings of the Port Harcourt club.Other personnel that will likely feature for Akwa United this evening include; Cyril Olisema, Moses Ebiye, Christian Pyagbara and feared marksman, Hassan Babangida.Godspower Igudia scored Akwa’s solitary goal in Ilorin against ABS on Sunday and the Rivers United rear guard will do well to pay the skilful marksman close attention.Maikaba is full of respect for United but insists his side will amass maximum points on Wednesday.“We can beat Rivers United by maybe two or three goals to pay them back in their own coin, what they did to us in Uyo last season (when Rivers United won 2-1 on enemy territory on the final day of the 2016 season).“No doubt, it will be a very good match mainly because of the pre-season enjoyed by Rivers United.“No club in the NPFL went through that process (of such a well-detailed pre-season exercise prosecuted by Rivers United).“We will try to get three points against Rivers United on Wednesday,” Maikaba told the club’s official website, www.riversunitedfc.com.ng.There are no injury worries or suspensions in the United camp and Technical Manager, Stanley Eguma has set his sights on a positive performance from his wards.“I have congratulated the boys for the win (against El Kanemi Warriors on Sunday) even though it was anything but a perfect performance.“It’s hard to play a perfect game at this stage of the season because there is still a lot of work to do integrating the old players with the new to create a compact unit and a perfect blend.“Now, we must try to get a good result against Akwa United; an excellent team that will have the full backing of their fans on Wednesday.“It will be a very difficult game and if my players don’t perform to the best of our abilities, I am very sure we will lose,” he said.Rivers United captain, Festus Austin is also expectant of maximum points from the ‘Uyo expedition’.“We want maximum points in Uyo,” he said simply.A compelling contest awaits and fireworks are guaranteed at the Nest of Champions.In Gombe, Remo Stars Football Club return to action against Gombe United Football at the Pantami Stadium.It’s the first game on the road for the Sky Blue Stars as both teams had earlier met at the Nigeria National League, NNL Super 4 in December 2016.The Sky Blue Stars defeated Gombe United 3-1 on penalties after both teams played out a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes.Going into this encounter Captain, Victor Mbaoma has indicated that him and his teammates are not under any pressure in getting a result but instead they want a result for themselves and make a statement.Mbaoma disclosed that the team isn’t under pressure to win today but they will play to win.“We have to respect our opponent by playing and defending well. We are not under any pressure at all but we will try our best possible to win.”“We won against them in the NNL Super 4 and we can replicate such performance when we play them again on Wednesday.”“We lost our first game at home but that won’t affect us from playing our game to win and we will be successful at the end of the game in Gombe by God’s grace”.The Sky Blue Stars lost 1-2 at home in the first game in the NPFL against Plateau United in Sagamu on SundayFIXTURES (4pm)Lobi v Kano PillarsIfeanyiUbah v MFM FCAkwa Utd v Rivers UtdTornadoes v ABS FCEl Kanemi v WikkiNasarawa v RangersAbia W’ v Katsina UtdGombe v Remo StarsPlateau Utd v EnyimbaSunshine v ShootingShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Badger bats warm up, knock off Ramblers

Posted on by

first_imgIt took Badger bats five full innings to wake up Tuesday afternoon, but they eventually did, and the University of Wisconsin softball team came out ahead in their home opener, edging Loyola 7-6 at Goodman Stadium.Despite providing Loyola with a four-run cushion, leaving eight runners on base and committing four errors in the field, Wisconsin (16-7) was able to survive and hand the Ramblers their 12th loss of the year.While she was relieved her team managed to escape with a victory, head coach Chandelle Schulte was not at all satisfied with the Badgers’ overall performance.”It was a heck of a comeback,” Schulte said. “But I thought we really performed poorly in all aspects of the ballgame — offensively, defensively and pitching.”Senior pitcher Eden Brock has been a workhorse for UW all season, and through the first few innings it looked like this game would be no different. Brock rolled through the first three frames, but ran into trouble in the fourth.With one out, Loyola catcher Raven Gengler reached on an error by typically sure-handed shortstop Lynn Anderson. Gengler then stole second, and came around to score after a single to center that got by Sam Polito. Brock hit the next batter, but managed to get out of the jam with two consecutive strikeouts.Wisconsin matched the Ramblers in the bottom half of the inning with a run of their own. Joey Daniels walked, Alexis Garcia legged out an infield single and Daniels came around to score after a wild pitch and two consecutive walks. Momentum seemed to be shifting in Wisconsin’s direction, but when Brock returned to the circle for the top of the fifth, the floodgates opened.The Ramblers came out swinging, slapping three straight singles and taking a 2-1 lead. Brock then surrendered only her sixth home run of the season, a two-run blast off the bat of first baseman Kat Krause.That was enough for Schulte to call upon the bullpen and freshman hurler Letty Olivarez. Even though the game might have looked out of reach, Olivarez still had to shake off some butterflies.”I was a little nervous,” Olivarez said. “The girls were having a little trouble, and I just wanted to come in and help Eden out.”Olivarez got into a little trouble herself, giving up a double and an RBI single to second baseman Angie Funston, but she recovered, managing to strike out Loyola shortstop Lindsay O’Gean for the third out of the inning.With the Badgers down, 6-1, Schulte gathered her troops for a serious dressing-down.”You cannot just show up,” Schulte said. “If you show up you will lose every day, regardless of the score. You have to play with heart.”Evidently, all Wisconsin needed was for someone to light a fire under them. The Badgers exploded in the bottom half of the sixth, sending every player in the lineup to the plate and tagging Loyola for six runs on five hits.Daniels led off with a single and was doubled home on Ricci Robben’s smash to right-center. After Valyncia Raphael singled to right and Lynn Anderson drew a walk, Sam Polito stepped to the plate with two outs and the bases loaded. Polito, who had already committed two errors in the game, made everyone forget about her defensive play with a sharp single that brought UW within two. She moved to third on an Athena Vasquez RBI single and slid safely under the tag after a wild pitch from reliever Krista Crosson. With the score knotted at six, Alexis Garcia’s fielders-choice groundout brought in the go-ahead run.Polito’s two-out single proved to be the crucial at-bat of the frame, extending the inning and allowing the meat of Wisconsin’s order to do some damage. But for Polito, the at-bat also served as redemption for a less-than-stellar performance in the field.”I started out a little rough,” Polito said. “But I fed off of everyone else, and I realized I had to come up and do my job. Everyone else was doing well and hitting, and I realized it was my time to step up.”I just thought about putting the ball in play and hitting it somewhere hard.””Apparently, whatever I had to say really inspired them,” Schulte said of her pre-inning lecture. “They didn’t quit, and that’s the sign of a good team.”Olivarez returned to the circle for the seventh, and was able to slam the door, but not before raising the collective blood pressure of everyone in the stadium.With two outs and a runner on third, Olivarez hit Angie Funston and issued a walk to No. 8 hitter O’Gean. But before the Ramblers could get back to the top of the order, Olivarez decided enough was enough, blowing a fastball by third baseman Alexandra Trudnich to preserve the victory for UW.”I just wanted to make sure to hit my spots,” Olivarez said of her last-inning nail-biter. “I was going to try to get someone to pop it up or ground out.”They were aggressive. They were good hitters. So we just had to try and not put it over the plate.”Although UW was able to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat, Schulte expressed concern for what she felt was a tentative attitude at the plate.”We’re taking too many strikes,” Schulte said. “In a situation where we have our 3-4-5 hitters up, they’re throwing pitches for us to hit and we’re watching them. Those are times when you have to make things happen.”Right now we’re watchers and we’re not doers, and we’re working on that.”last_img read more
