Pattinson, who has been in and out of the Australian test team since his debut in 2011, was suspended due to ‘personal abuse of a player while fielding’ in a recent Sheffield Shield match.Advertisement The incident happened last week during a match where he represented Victoria against Queensland. Although his exact words were not recorded, he was suspended for one match due to this instance being his third breach of code of conduct within a period of 18 months. “We have a duty to uphold the highest standards of behaviour and the action taken in this matter demonstrates that,” CA’s head of integrity and security Sean Carroll stated about the incident. Pattinson’s unfortunate ban paves the way for injury-prone fast bowler Mitchell Starc to get a position in the starting eleven against Pakistan. Pattinson has publicly apologised for the incident.Advertisement “I have done the wrong thing and accept the penalty. I’m gutted to miss a Test match, but the standards are there for a reason and the fault is mine”, Pattinson declared.Ajinkya Rahane plots return to India ODI side through strong test showingAdvertisement Cheteshwar Pujara reveals the biggest challenge batsmen will face playing D/N tests with pink ball Advertisement

A proposal for Donegal to back an All-Ireland Pollinator Plan has been adopted by Donegal County Council.Inishowen Councillor Albert Doherty proposed the motion calling on the council to adopt, implement and actively promote the plan.The plan was unanimously supported and adopted by members this week. Cllr Doherty has welcomed members support which now directs Donegal County Council to sign a framework agreement, become an official partner with the Pollinator Plan and affirm the local authority’s commitment to support pollinators in County Donegal.Cllr Doherty stated “To help pollinators, we need to ensure that they have food, shelter and safety from chemicals such as pesticides.“Council owned grounds, parks and open spaces can play a critical supportive role for pollinators.“Friendly pollinator actions include managing the land in a slightly different way than has been the norm, now working it in a way that it is sustainable for pollinators so that they can survive and continue to provide us with their vital service. “Ireland depends on pollinating insects to pollinate our crops, fruits and vegetables. Unfortunately, many of our pollinators are now threatened with extinction. There is much better awareness now about the importance and the plight of the bees and the fact that all of us including County Councils can do something to help them.“Community groups, Tidy Town committees, farmers, schools, sports groups and the local authorities et al can and are the essential ingredients required in implementing the plan and making the landscape more pollinator friendly.“Donegal County Council has now committed to what will be a lengthy venture. The Pollinator Plan is a cross-sector initiative requiring interest, cooperation, understanding, awareness sharing and Actions.”“Doing nothing is not an option,” Cllr Doherty concluded.Donegal gets busy bee-coming a pollinator! was last modified: March 27th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Cllr Albert Dohertydonegalpollinator
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Weather will once again dominate grain markets for the next three months. The U.S. Climate Prediction Center is not currently seeing an active El Niño or La Niña. It is extremely important to monitor for that activity. The Center does see increasing odds for an El Niño in the Northern Hemisphere by late summer or fall. It’s arrival will be crucial for summer weather conditions. Other meteorologists suggest that if El Niño begins after early August, summer weather patterns could be hot and dry. Typically the El Niño pattern is not bad for crop production if present during the summer in the U.S.Corn and soybean planting is the main focus for producers across Ohio and the Midwest for the next three weeks. As of the second week of April, U.S. corn planting progress was 3%, the same as the five year average. Days before the Easter holiday, producers across parts but not all of Ohio were just beginning field preparations to plant corn and soybeans. Field activity was not yet at a fast and furious pace at that time. Mid-April Ohio weather forecasts have above normal precipitation into the end of April.Weather has not been a huge factor in Brazil or Argentina as compared to previous years. Lacking this year were the long periods of hot weather in Brazil along with prolonged rainy periods in Argentina. Missing are the concerns of reduced soybean production in Brazil and Argentina due to weather. Also missing are the huge soybean loading delays, which reached nearly 60 days at the ports in Brazil. Those delays were long enough to shift loadings from the U.S., pushing our soybean exports higher than expected.The supply and demand report increased ending stocks for soybeans and wheat. Soybean ending stocks were increased 15 million bushels while wheat ending stocks increased 30 million bushels. The March 31 quarterly stocks report estimated soybean stocks higher than traders had expected. With soybean demand consisting largely of exports and crush, usage can be readily observed with weekly export reports or monthly soybean crush reports. The reality of higher than expected soybean stocks reveals a trend that will gather steam in coming months —2016 U.S. soybean production was under-reported with previous reports. Any corrections will take place with the October Supply and Demand Report which will follow the Sept. 29 Quarterly Grain Stocks Report. Meanwhile, the residual column will change to reflect the expected higher production.The mid-April period brought two things to watch. First, South America soybean producers reduced their selling to a near crawl. It was the same selling pace seen in February when reports of the Brazilian Real moving unfavorably brought news of producers in Brazil storing, not selling soybeans. It did not affect or reduce the loading of soybean boats in Brazil during February and March. Second, the Commitment of Traders Report brought an uncommon occurrence heading into the spring planting season: managed money grain positions short in the grains. Funds have been reducing their long soybean positions for over six weeks as they grew tired of the price decline of nearly $1.40 from February into April. The price decline was not healthy to their bottom line. Mid-April managed money held short positions in soybeans of 24,000 contracts. Weeks earlier they had been long over 150,000 contracts of soybeans. The report had the same traders short 143,000 contracts of corn and short 138,000 contracts of wheat. While those traders had been short corn for weeks and short wheat for many months, the report revealed they were adding to their short positions in both corn and wheat. Corn prices were higher for several days mid-April. It had been thought with that price rally that it had been a rally of funds reducing or buying back their short positions. That was not the case. Those funds continue to believe and position themselves for lower prices for corn, soybeans, and wheat which they feel are destined to come to reality as the planting and growing seasons progress in the months ahead.

Dennis WardAPTN National NewsThe company behind the Dakota Access Pipeline says there are no contractual obligations tied to the beginning of 2017.And Energy Transfer Partners expects a different take on the construction of the controversial pipeline once President Elect Donald Trump is sworn in on January 20th.Earlier this month, a report called “The High-Risk Financing Behind the Dakota Access Pipeline: A Potential Stranded Asset in the Bakken Region of North Dakota” was released.The report from the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis and Sightline Institute states that the project has a deadline before losses will be felt.“DAPL faces a looming financial deadline,” researchers wrote. “The pipeline’s principal backer, Energy Transfer Partners, has conceded in court proceedings that is has a contractual obligation to complete the project by January 1, 2017. If it misses the deadline, companies that have committed long-term to ship oil through the pipeline at 2014 prices have the right to rescind those commitments and may well exercise that right.”And according to media sources in the United States, Sunoco Logistics Partners has announced a nearly $20 billion merger with Energy Transfer Partners.In an email to APTN, Energy Transfer Partners spokesperson Vicki Granado said is false.“There is nothing contractual tied to the January 1 date. That was an initial in-service target date. The contractual dates are further out and pose no issue to the project.”Granado said the company has no worries that investors will start pulling out of the project. The company currently has equipment on site and ready to drill under the water to complete the North Dakota portion of the four-state pipeline. The company is capable of drilling even during a harsh North Dakota winter.The company currently has equipment on site and ready to drill under the water to complete the North Dakota portion of the four-state pipeline.
