In a few Huddle Ups I have railed on starting kids too early in sports. This blog will talk about some of the good things I have come across.If the youngsters get a caring adult to coach them, it can be a very educational situation. Here the coach needs to be encouraging, helpful, and low-key. Besides learning a sport, these youngsters are learning how to get along with others. They need to learn to share, take turns, and not get too upset if things don’t go their way.Here is where you need someone who is there to teach them a game and not someone who thinks they are Vince Lombardi or Bobby Knight. Afterall, they are still under 8 years of age and winning is not everything.

New Delhi: Coming into 2019 World Cup, England team had played a number of finals in the history of the mega event. But despite that, the Englishmen weren’t able to get their hands on the coveted trophy. However, this time around, the Brits were deemed as one of the favourites to win the championship.The same was for the reason that Eoin Morgan and Co entered the tournament as the ICC’s number-one ranked ODI team. Moreover, the fact that the Brits were playing at home, made many experts and pundits believe that England can come out trumps. The English team lost three matches in the league stages and was also in danger of getting eliminated before the semis, but the team worked regressively with the full fortitude and didn’t disappoint their fans.In the semi-final, the defeated five-time champions Australia at the Edgbaston and then upstaged New Zealand on boundary count in the final at the iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground in London. The match went down to the Super Over, which also got tied after which the number of boundaries had to be taken into account. Meanwhile, the England fans were delighted by Morgan and Co’s performance in the crunch moments.One of the fans was a popular model, named Bethany Lily April, who has a stunning 135.7 thousand followers on Twitter. She congratulated the national team on the victory at the Home of Cricket, posting three pictures where she was seen doing a strip-tease. The model captioned the three pictures and wrote, “Well done England #CricketWorldCup2019”Here’s the Tweet: Well done England #CricketWorldCup2019 pic.twitter.com/Yla9dkI1VH— Bethany lily april (@BethanyLilyA) July 14, 2019 For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.

Visitors to South Africa are alwayskeen for a chance to view the big five;the lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo andrhino.(Images: MediaClubSouthAfrica.com.For more images, visit the image library)MEDIA CONTACTS• Thandiwe MathibelaSouth African Tourism+27 11 895 3000German tourism to South Africa grew by 9.9% in the first 11 months of 2011, according to SA Tourism, compared to all 12 months of 2010 – the year the country hosted the Fifa World Cup.The research also reveals that 40% were repeat visitors.Tourism Minister Marthinus van Schalkwyk, who attended last month’s International Tourism Bourse (ITB) in Berlin, in Germany, noted in an address that the German outbound market is one of the most valuable in the world.He conceded that the uncertain economic situation in Europe and around the world was a cause for concern, but said the outlook for the world’s travel industry remains good.“The global growth was not as strong as in 2010, but tourist arrivals still grew to a staggering 980 million in 2011.”According to Van Schalkwyk, long-haul destinations, which are characterised by either a travelling timeline of between four and six hours, or travelling from one country to another, have become much more attractive to German tourists in recent years.“SA Tourism’s research has shown that there is still a large opportunity in this market and we have to do more to create demand among the younger travellers that are considering South Africa,” said Van Schalkwyk.He pointed out that travellers from Germany are increasingly price-sensitive when choosing a destination and are looking for meaningful experiences in holidays.The minister is of the opinion that South Africa is well-positioned to take on this market.Showcasing South Africa at the ITBThe ITB is one of the world’s leading travel trade shows, with more than 170 000 visitors. Among these about 108 000 are general trade visitors, while another 10 000 or so are exhibitors from 180 countries around the globe.Tourism players from all over the South Africa showcased their wares and conducted business meetings to stimulate trade to the country at the event.Among the exhibitors were the nine provincial winners of the 2011/2012 Emerging Tourism Entrepreneur of the Year (Eteya) competition.Eteya is an initiative of, among others, SA Tourism and the Department of Tourism. It is aimed at encouraging entrepreneurs within the sector from all nine provinces to grow their businesses and empower their communities.Also on the itinerary was a South African evening for German media and trade, which showcased tourism attractions and experiences from all nine provinces, including golf, wildlife, fashion, culture, heritage and outdoor adventures.Another highlight was a fashion show by renowned South African designer Bongiwe Walaza, who expressed her pride at Team SA.“It is important to encourage Germans to visit our country because of the economic impact they have,” said Walaza.She added that the impact of German tourists could benefit smaller communities across the country because they are keen on experiencing our authentic traditions and cultures.Theresa Bay-Müller, SA Tourism Country Manager for Germany, said: “We’ve got big plans for the German market, we’ve grown market share and confidence in destination South Africa is stable.Wine talkThe show would of course be incomplete without a celebration of South African food and wine.South African wine, a popular product in Europe, saw exports to Germany reaching the number one slot in January 2012, for the first time overtaking the UK market.Exports of South African wine to Germany increased by 13%, averaging 81 million litres per year, compared to the UK’s 80.9 million litres.Bulk wine imports have increased generally, by 19% in Germany, 91% to Denmark, 56% to Sweden and 8% to UK.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We have heard reports of growers spotting a few soybean aphids in their fields. Finding aphids at this time of year is consistent in the past—we have seen them arrive later and later. We do have a lot of late-planted soybean that are in R4 or R5 stage soybean.Remember that our economic threshold to treat soybean aphids is a rising population of 250 aphids per plant. But also remember that, at higher growth stages (>R6) the threshold increases dramatically. At this point it is important to note that none of the fields in Ohio have reached treatable levels. Given the aphids’ arrival, the growth stage of soybean and the oncoming onslaught of natural enemies, it may be unlikely that we see any significant impact from soybean aphids this year, but we should monitor our fields. An additional word of caution—many of you have heard that insecticide resistant soybean aphids have been found out West (especially Minnesota and Iowa). While we have not heard of any resistant aphids in Ohio, we certainly do not want to encourage their presence by applying insecticides when we don’t need to.
