HOW CARRIGART COMMUNITY SPIRIT MADE THIS ST PATRICK’S WEEKEND SPECIAL

first_imgThe Moving Mevagh Forward organised Carrigart St. Patrick’s Day Parade turned out to be a great success with huge crowds and a significant increase in the number and quality of floats. An added bonus was the fact that the rain stayed away during the parade, indeed the sun shone for most of it.A wide range of establishments, businesses, sporting clubs, rally cars, haulage contractors, transport companies, youth groups, novelty acts and voluntary organisations, among others, put on a wonderful spectacle for the 75 minutes of the parade.The Devlinreagh School Band led the parade into town and, as usual, entertained the crowd before the parade passed through. The last act in the parade was the award winning Fanad Accordian Band, who made the short journey across the Harry Blaney bridge, to show off their considerable talents. While the amount of effort and degree of originality shown by the participants in preparing their floats was considerable, and was wonderful for the spectators, it left the work of the judges in determining the most original float very difficult. After much deliberation the judges selected The Mevagh Voluntary Fire Service as the winners. The theme was “No Horse Meat Here” despite the fact that they had a horse carcass on their float and a horse following the float.DJ John Bosco kept the crowd informed of the various floats as they passed by the grandstand kindly supplied by Willie Doherty, Cranford. Cllr. Noel McBride thanked all those who helped in anyway to make the Carrigart St. Patrick’s Day parade such a success and he congratulated the town’s newest business, Galanta Gifts, who kindly donated sweets for all the children.The organisers would like to thank Maggie Doherty, Carrigart Hotel and Belinda McGroddy, Moving Mevagh Forward for all their hard work in the preparation for the successful day.     HOW CARRIGART COMMUNITY SPIRIT MADE THIS ST PATRICK’S WEEKEND SPECIAL was last modified: March 19th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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)last_img read more

Continue to watch for ear rots

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Matt Hutcheson, Seed Consultants, Inc.In the past few weeks while making yield estimates and walking corn fields, it has become apparent that ear rots will be a concern this fall. Corn ear rots reduce corn yield, affect grain quality, and can lead to the development of mycotoxins in grain.Below are symptoms and toxin concerns for ear rots that may be present in corn fields this fall:• Aspergillus ear rot: Symptoms appear as an olive-green mold on corn kernels that usually occurs at the tip of the ear. Aspergillus ear rot produces aflatoxin which is toxic to livestock and considered a carcinogen as well.• Fusarium ear rot: Symptoms include white to pink colored mold on kernels. This mold can infect small areas of kernels on the ear or be scattered in a random patter across the ear. Fusarium ear rot sometimes occurs where insects have damaged kernels the ear. Fusarium ear rot produces mycotoxins which create a toxicity concern for both human and livestock consumption.• Gibberella ear rot: Symptoms include a pink mold that usually begins at the ear tip. Fusarium ear rot produces two toxins, including DON which is also referred to as vomitoxin. DON is toxic to livestock, especially hogs.• Diploidia ear rot: Symptoms include a thick white or gray colored mold that begins at the base of the corn ear.It is critical for corn growers to scout fields and determine if ear rots are present. Infected fields should be harvested and dried early, then segregated from grain not affected by ear rots. Adjust combines so lighter, damaged kernels will be sorted out and left in the field. Drying grain to below 15% moisture will prevent further development of ear rots.last_img read more

GeoTea—an interview with the owners of a geocaching cafe in Belgium

If you’re reading this, you’ve likely caught the geocaching love bug. Think back on the first cache you found. What was it like that day? What geocache made you fall in love with the game? Who made you fall in love with the game? It’s easy to get lost in the brush and forget about these moments when you’re caught up in your day to day. But what if there was a way to solidify these moments so you wouldn’t forget them?One couple in Belgium decided to take not only their love for one another but also their love for geocaching and make a lifestyle out of it. Jolien and Jenno started a geocaching-themed cafe called GeoTea (who is also an official Geocaching partner). The idea behind the cafe came about because they wanted to create a space where geocachers could get together, visit, or hang out. Now, their cafe is a successful business—if you’re wondering, yes, they serve muggles too. If you’re ever in Belgium, be sure to stop by this shop and say hello. For those who are unable to visit them in person don’t worry, we’ve interviewed them on your behalf.Green writing is JolienBlue writing is Jenno.What are you geocaching names?We got a Geocaching name together,  Jolien&Jenno. But most of the people know us as J&J.How did you meet each other? It’s weird to tell this story but we met each other on Twitter. 😉 Jolien was traveling in Korea and I had a night-shift on the radio. So because of the time difference she was one of the only ones online. So we start chatting with each other. And after a few dates we fell in love and now we’re inseparable.Were you both geocachers before you met? How did you get started? I had the Geocaching app on my phone before I met Jenno, but never tried it. So I didn’t have a username yet. One day we decided to go outside and test the app. In the beginning we didn’t know what we were looking for. We first thought we had to look for a fishing rod because someone told us he found a fishing rod with a geocache attached. But it felt weird to look for a fishing rod in the woods. After a while we found out the geocache hanging in a tree. And so our common hobby (read; addiction) was born: geocaching!Where did the idea to start a geocaching cafe come from? We love to meet other geocachers at events because every cacher has their own story. But we found that we missed a place where we can go to without making a geocaching event and wanted to meet other geocachers on a common base. Almost every sport has a club cafe or a place to come together, but geocachers only had the chance to meet each other at events. Jolien worked for a coffee brand and she is a big coffee lover..so the idea grew to make our own geocache cafe.What is your preferred tea blend? We mostly always drink mint tea. But we also got a really nice apple cinnamon flavored tea.What is your preferred cache type?It’s hard to say, it depends how the (final) cache looks like. We usually seek Traditionals.What has been your favorite part about the cafe? I like to have contact with people, geocachers, but also non-geocachers (muggles;-)). And it gives me such a good feeling to make people happy with a nice talk, a delicious drink or good food. I totally agree! And it’s also great to meet geocachers and share experiences.What are some customer favorites from the menu? We got our own ‘Baguette GeoTea’ and ‘gevuld broodje GeoTea’. Because you cannot eat it somewhere else people often get curious and want to try it. Once they tried it they order it again a next time. For the ones who are curious of what’s inside, our ‘Baguette GeoTea’ are 2 pieces of artisan bread with avocado, nuts, egg, and also a few surprises. And ‘gevuld broodje GeoTea’ is a bowl bread with egg and veggies inside. I cannot tell everything. A good cook doesn’t tell their recipes. Also our home-made pasta is a success!How has the local community of geocachers reacted to your cafe? We were a little scared in the beginning, but I guess most of the geocachers in the neighborhood already visited us and liked it. We also got a lot of geocachers from different countries. We found out some people tell about GeoTea on geocache forums or even suggest people to visit us while they are on vacation. This feels so good. And we’re close to the Dutch border, so a lot of people from the Netherlands also come and visit us.Do you have any cache hides of your own? We work together with some geocachers in the neighborhood. We have created a joint account to place caches. And the maintenance is done by us. If these caches count we have placed something like 50 geocaches in the neighborhood of GeoTea. So if a geocacher visits us they can also do one of our trails.What do you love about the game of geocaching?You discover places where you otherwise never go. We also like geocaching on vacation to discover the area. It’s a perfect way to go outside and clear your head.Do you go on geocaching dates? We know a lot of geocachers now, but we only go geocaching by the two of us. I don’t want someone finding the cache before me. Just kidding! 😉 We mostly go geocaching on our free days when GeoTea is closed. But when we host a geocache event or visit an event it’s nice we almost know all the geocachers who attend the event.Do you plan on opening more GeoTea locations?For now 1 is enough. We’re really happy with what we’ve built. But never say never!Share with your Friends:Morelast_img read more

The Deal was Closed A Long Time Ago

This eBook will help you Seize Your Sales Destiny, with or without a manager. Download Now The deal wasn’t closed on the boardroom table at the signing event. The signing is the formality, the ceremony, the codification of an agreement that happened at an earlier time.The deal wasn’t closed when you got the verbal commitment either. The fact that your prospective client said yes when you asked for the business is proof positive that the deal was closed at some earlier point in time. This ask is important, and it is not a conversation you should avoid. But it isn’t when you won the deal.Some deals are won during the very first meeting when you establish yourself as the right person with whom your dream client should be doing business. When they have decided they want you on their team, you’ve won.Deals are also won when you capture your dream client’s mindshare because you are the person who helps them think about their challenges, their opportunities, and what they should do moving into the future.You win early when your discovery process helps your dream client discover something about themselves and their business. It isn’t the slide deck that wins the deal. It’s you, the person who is helping them think about their business and their choices.Winning happens when you de-risk the deal by providing your dream clients with the confidence to move forward with the change you are proposing, explaining to them what is likely to go wrong, what you will do about it, and how you will anticipate these challenges. The close happens in some deals when your prospective client decides to make the change you are recommending, and to bring you on as a partner in those outcomes.It’s a mistake to believe that the deal is closed when you ask for the business and your client signs a contract. That is the end of the process if you’ve done everything right up to that point. But doing everything right up to that point is why you are getting the yes when you ask. If your dream client can say yes when you ask and sign when you give them paper, you won long before either one of those events occurred.last_img read more
