Matches in Daugavpils and Jelgava today in the Optibet Super League

first_imgJelgavas footballers Photo: Zigismunds Zālmanis / “Riga”The remaining two ninth round games will be played in the Optibet Super League today, which will determine the order of the teams in the middle of the tournament table.“Daugavpils” at the stadium “Celtnieks” will host Jurmala “Spartaku” at 18:00. The game will be broadcast live on the channel “Sportacentrs.com TV”.The last games have been more successful for “Spartaks”, who were forced to skip the seventh round game with “Liepāja”, because the team identified three club employees infected with Covid-19. After that, “Spartaks” with Nemanja Belakovič’s excellent performance defeated “Jelgava” 4: 1, without losing in the last three Super League games.“Daugavpils”, on the other hand, won with losses, after winning in its own square over “Ventspils” with 3: 1 with 0: 3, experiencing a defeat away in the fight against “Valmiera”.While Belakovičs is the league leader in this indicator with seven goals scored, Daugavpils’ best goalkeeper Chinonso Ofors with four goals scored was sold to RFS at the beginning of the transfer period. Already in Tuesday’s fight as part of the new team, Ofors stood out with the fifth goal scored in the Super League and a pass. In the absence of the corpse, Andrejs Kovaļovs is the most productive with three goals scored in the ranks of “Daugavpils”.Last season, in the matches of these teams, “Daugavpils” celebrated the victory victory in the eighth final of the Latvian Cup with a 1-0 away. “Spartaks” celebrated three successes in the Latvian championship games with a total goal ratio of 9: 6.“Jelgava” will host “Liepāja” at the stadium of Zemgale Olympic Center at 7 pm. The game will be broadcast live on the channel “Best4Sport TV”.The last games have not been very successful for both teams. “Jelgava” after two successes at the beginning of the championship, then won only one victory in six matches, beating “Ventspils” 1-0 in its field. In the last round, the guests experienced the already mentioned devastation in Jūrmala. Meanwhile, “Liepāja”, which has a game with “Spartak” in reserve, as it was postponed to September, after four losses in the last round managed to win a draw in its field against the debutants of the Premier League “Tukums 2000 ″ / TSS – 2: 2.While all footballers will be able to play for Jelgava, Liepāja has been severely cut by the uncontrollability of the club’s best player Artūrs Karašauskas, threatening the referee in the July 8 match and earning a disqualification for a month.In case of victory, the people of Liepaja will overtake their opponents today.“Jelgava” is the most productive with three goals scored by Jurijs Zaharkivs, who also stood out in the last round, but no one has scored more than two goals in the guest ranks.Last season, a depressing advantage in the duel of these teams was in the “Liepāja” side, which won three and played in the fourth match in a draw, fixing the goal ratio 6: 2. In mutual games, Jelgava residents have not won in eight games already, winning the previous victory in the 2018 Latvian Cup.The three games of the ninth round took place on Tuesday, when in the central game of the round “Riga” at “Skonto” stadium beat “Ventspils” with 1: 0 (0: 0), “Tukums 2000 ″ / TSS gave way to RFS with 0: 3 (0: 1) and “Valmiera” guests played 2: 2 (1: 0) with the “Metta” team.“Riga” is still in the leading positions of the Premier League, which, like RFS, has 24 points in nine games, but wins in a mutual match. “Valmiera” takes the third place with 15 points, “Ventspils” has 11 points, in the same number of seven games, but the loss in the mutual match – “Spartak”, nine points in eight matches – “Jelgava” and “Daugavpils”. The “Metta” team has scored eight points, but “Liepāja” has scored seven in seven dues. “Tukums 2000” / TSS has reached two points.This season, ten teams will start in the Super League, which is one more than last year and two more than yesterday. Also, this season in the Super League, the legionnaire limit has been raised to eight players. This means that there must be at least three players prepared for the association on the court at the same time. Last year, the limit was five foreign players.As in many other countries, the number of permitted substitutions has been increased from three to five after the coronavirus break in the regulations of the Premier League championship in the 2020 season.Due to a three-month forced break, three will be played instead of the four planned laps this season.Last year, “Riga” was crowned Latvian champion, but RFS won its first trophy in the history of the club, which won the national cup.last_img read more

But in the short term, I’m certainly happy and we need to continue working so that they continue their development, the young players.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

250 Acres of Land Identified for Public Sector Housing

first_imgThe Ministry of Transport, Works and Housing, has identified 250 acres of land at Ebony Park in St. Catherine, which will be used for the construction of houses for civil servants. “This will reduce the cost of housing for public sector workers,” said Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller on Tuesday, April 30, in her contribution to the 2013/2014 Budget debate in the House of Representatives. She announced that other suitable parcels of land for public sector housing will be identified and announced at the appropriate time. Mrs. Simpson Miller in her presentation under the theme: ‘Jamaica: Going for Growth and Development, Unleashing our Full Potential,’ commended the various stakeholders, including the business sector and their depositors, for their sacrifice towards the stabilisation of the economy. She added that public servants and the public sector trade unions have also made “huge sacrifices”, while noting that they have “partnered with us and have, once again, agreed to wage restraints.” “Whether they are teachers, police or soldiers on the frontline; whether they are health professionals, accountants or social workers, technical or executive professionals, administrators, clerical, ancillary workers or drivers; this country cannot run without our dedicated public servants,” Mrs. Simpson Miller said. “Time and time again, they have ‘stepped to the plate’ to help Jamaica. We owe them a huge debt of gratitude. I assure them that we have not taken their sacrifices for granted. This is why we will always choose dialogue and be respectful of our public servants,” she added. By Latonya Linton, JIS Reporterlast_img read more

Organic dairy farmers vow to compete in changing industry

first_imgFAIRFIELD, Iowa – Small family operated dairy farms with cows freely grazing on verdant pastures are going out of business as large confined animal operations with thousands of animals lined up in assembly-line fashion are expanding into the organic market.Many traditional small-scale organic farmers are determined to fight back against the industry transformation by appealing to consumers to look closely at the organic milk they buy to make sure it comes from a farm that meets the idyllic expectations portrayed on the cartons. While the large operations say they’re meeting U.S. Department of Agriculture standards for organic milk, the smaller farms say federal regulators under Republican and Democratic administrations have relaxed enforcement of strict organic standards for dairy farms, allowing confinement dairies to grow and put intense competition on small family operated dairies.“There’s a higher authority than the USDA. There’s a higher authority than the federal courts where we’ve litigated some of these issues. And that’s the consumer. Their dollar has power,” said Mark Kastel at the Wisconsin-based Cornucopia Institute, a non-profit public interest group focused on farm policy.The dairy industry, like much of U.S. farming, has trended toward fewer but larger farms since the 1980s, when organic milk was available only at farmers markets or specialty grocers and the milk came from small-scale dairy farms selling to a local co-operative. Now organic dairy products are widely distributed by mainstream grocers and mass retailers including Costco, Target and Walmart. But much of those companies’ store-brand milk comes from dairies with thousands of cows maintained in immense confinement operations.Kastel says that style of farming is contrary to what the founders of the organic movement envisioned and what consumers believe they’re buying. His group on Thursday is releasing an updated Organic Dairy Scorecard , which will rank 160 brands evaluated for their organic practices including quality of pasture, how frequently cows graze and how often they’re milked.A spokeswoman for Aurora Organic Dairy, the industry’s largest supplier to grocery chains such as Costco, Safeway, and Walmart, said activists who believe organic food should come from only small producers are the primary critics inaccurately portraying large-scale organic production.Sonja Tuitele said the company’s farms have more than 10,000 acres (4,046 hectares) of organic pasture for grazing and the farms exceed minimum requirements for grazing days and per cent of diet from grazing.The company has nine barns in Colorado and Texas with about 26,000 cows. The largest has 4,400 cows and the smallest, 900 cows. Aurora CEO Scott McGinty said in a statement released in April that the company maintains two USDA accredited certifiers for each farm.“A second organic certification is a voluntary quality assurance step to ensure our farms receive more frequent inspections and measurement of compliance,” he said.Competition from large operations combined with plummeting dairy prices in the past four years have left organic dairy farmers either barely squeezing out a profit or in most cases losing money. It has accelerated the loss of smaller farms.The U.S. Department of Agriculture reported in February that the number of U.S. dairy farms, including organic and conventional fell nearly 4 per cent last year from the previous year to 40,219. The number of dairy farms declined 32 per cent in the last decade.For Patti and Brian Wilson, the changing industry has soured the profitability at their 600-acre dream dairy farm in Orwell, Vermont, they converted to organic 16 years ago. Milking their 50 cows has become unprofitable, said Patty, who was an agronomist with the USDA before she began farming full time.“We just put an ad out listing our herd for sale,” she said. “It’s been a slow decline, kind of a slow death.”Southern Iowa organic dairy farmer Francis Thicke’s strategy is to work with other farmers to create the Real Organic Project , an effort to create an additional label that will be placed on packaging to tell consumers that the products meet traditional organic standards. A pilot project this year will have 50 farms with products carrying the Real Organics label.In addition to meeting USDA certification requirements, they must meet the project’s standards, including that produce has been grown in soil and not hydroponically and that animals have access to the outdoors.Thicke, who has been in organic farming since the 1970s, walks among 85 docile Jersey cows on his 730-acre (295-hectare) Radiance Dairy farm near Fairfield as they lounge under a grove of trees on a sunny summer day, casually walking and grabbing mouthfuls of thick green grass. He sells 2,000 gallons (7,570 litres) of organic milk a week in the form of milk, cheese and yogurt to nearby restaurants, grocery stores and a private college.“Basically, it’s just bringing organic back to the roots that the pioneer organic farmers envisioned,” Thicke said of the Real Organics label effort.___Follow David Pitt on Twitter: https://twitter.com/davepitt___This story has been corrected to remove reference to Organic Farmers Association, which is a separate group from those working on the Real Organic Project.last_img read more

Trai studying global best practices … to fix OTT views by May: Centre

first_imgNew Delhi: Telecom regulator Trai hopes to finalise, by May-end its views on whether Over-The-Top (OTT) services like Whatsapp and Skype should be brought under the regulatory regime, an issue on which it has kept an “open mind” and studied global best practices and European model, a top official said. Telecom Regulatory Authority of India Chairman R S Sharma said that the regulator has also studied the European Electronic Communications Code (European Union is amending the common rules regulating the telecom industry) and will keep global best practices in mind while formulating its opinion. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalOTT services refer to applications and services that are accessible over the Internet and ride on an operator’s network. Skype, Viber, WhatsApp and Hike are some of the popular and widely-used OTT services. “We have studied the European Union’s model…they have come up with Electronic Communications Code. We have also studied global best practices and we will keep those in mind,” Sharma said. The European Electronic Communications Code outlines updated rules for providers of mobile and fixed-line services, moots regulations for new online communications services and is a move towards harmonising a single European telecom market. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostTrai is holding an open house discussion on OTT issues in Bengaluru on Wednesday and plans to have a similar one in Delhi soon. “We have an open mind, like in all consultations where we follow a set process … By May-end we should be able to formulate our recommendation or regulation on the matter,” Sharma said. Last year, Trai had issued its consultation paper — Regulatory Framework for Over The Top Communications Services’ – to debate whether OTT players should be brought under the regulatory regime. Of late, many of these platforms have come under greater scrutiny, and the Indian government is also proposing changes in IT rules to seek greater accountability from these firms. Trai has, however, made it clear that the scope of its current consultation would be regulatory issues and economic concerns pertaining to those OTT services that are “same or similar” to the services provided by telecom service providers (TSPs). Its discussion paper is aimed at analysing and discussing “changes that may be required in the current regulatory framework to govern these entities; and the manner in which such changes should be effected”. The regulator had sought the industry’s views on which OTT services should be regarded as the same or similar to those offered by telecom operators, and if “substitutability” should be the main criteria for comparison of regulatory or licensing rules applicable to TSPs and OTT service providers.last_img read more
