It was the brainchild of Ronaldo’s older brother, Hugo, who after travelling to see his sibling at his villa in Madrid and noticing that his various trophies were scattered across the property, thought it would make sense to house them in one place. And after the trophies kept on coming, it was decided a larger space was required. Hence the move to a site at Praça do Mar comprising of two stories and 1,400sq m of floor space shortly before Ronaldo was further enhancing his God-like status in Madeira by being a key part of Portugal’s Euro 2016-winning squad.There were over 140, so a decent-sized building would be required; fortunately, the younger Ronaldo had one in Funchal that needed filling and so a museum in his honour was created.In front of the museum is a giant bronze statue with a plaque with writing in Portuguese “Melhor Jogador Do Mundo” – which means “Best Player In The World”. A bold claim and one that would no doubt be disputed by backers of a certain Argentinian based in Barcelona.Cristiano Ronal has won five FIFA Player of the Year/Ballon d’Or throughout his career, UEFA Best Player in Europe: Twice, European Golden boot: 4, amongst others.

DONEGAL MEN WHO DIED IN BIRMINGHAM PUB BOMBINGS REMEMBERED 40 YEARS ON

first_imgA LARGE crowd gathered in Birmingham, England, last night to mark 40 years since the pub bombings in the city which left 21 people dead.Among those to die in the IRA attacks were Eugene Reilly, 23 and his brother Desmond who was 21.Their parents were from County Donegal and relatives from here travelled to England for the memorial. Julie Hambleton, whose then 18-year-old sister Maxine was killed in the bombings, said it was of utmost importance the victims were “never forgotten”.But she also asked for national eyes to be focused on their campaign for truth and justice.Ms Hambleton said: “It was a fantastic evening. People came from as far away as Donegal, Scotland and Cornwall to remember their loved ones.“They were soaking, dripping wet and every single one of them thanked us for what we are doing and asked us to continue. One woman who lost a friend cried in my arms and said she could not thank me enough. “Innocent people were slain for no reason and no-one is looking for the murderers,” she said. “We need the country to get behind us. None of us want to be on the news, talking about this, when we should be allowed to grieve, but we get no help from the Government.“It is a means to an end, to put pressure on the establishment.”Six men convicted of carrying out the bombings – the Birmingham Six – were freed after it emerged they had been framed by West Midlands Police.In 1994 the Reillys’ mother Bridget told of how she was discriminated against in the years after her own sons’ murders because of her Irish accent.  DONEGAL MEN WHO DIED IN BIRMINGHAM PUB BOMBINGS REMEMBERED 40 YEARS ON was last modified: November 22nd, 2014 by John2Share 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:Birmingham Pub bombdonegallast_img read more

Will the wet conditions hurt pollination?

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest According to the National Agricultural Statistics Service for the week ending July 19, 43% of the state’s corn was silking compared to 53% for the five-year average. The pollination period, the flowering stage in corn, is the most critical period in the development of a corn plant from the standpoint of grain yield determination. Stress conditions (such as hail damage and drought) have the greatest impact on yield potential during the reproductive stage.This year’s excessive rainfall has resulted in highly variable conditions within corn fields with regard to saturated soils and ponding, which may impact uniformity of pollination. The NASS Ohio report indicated that 65% of the fields surveyed were characterized by surplus topsoil moisture. In a recent Purdue newsletter article, Bob Nielsen observed that the development of ear shoots removed from stunted, waterlogged plants was distinctly delayed relative to those from healthier plants. He noted that the latter were in the early stages of silk emergence (R1), while those of the nearby stunted plants were only in the initial stages of silk elongation within the husk leaves, and surmised that silk emergence of stunted plants would likely be at least a week delayed. In Ohio, uneven pollination may be more pronounced in corn planted in late May, which is generally exhibiting more water damage.Most corn hybrids tassel and silk about the same time although some variability exists among hybrids and environments. On a typical midsummer day, peak pollen shed occurs in the morning between 9 and 11 a.m. followed by a second round of pollen shed late in the afternoon. Pollen may be shed before the tassel fully emerges. Pollen shed begins in the middle of the central spike of the tassel and spreads out later over the whole tassel with the lower branches last to shed pollen. Pollen grains are borne in anthers, each of which contains a large number of pollen grains. The anthers open and the pollen grains pour out in early to mid morning after dew has dried off the tassels. Pollen is light and is often carried considerable distances by the wind. However, most of it settles within 20 to 50 feet.One of the concerns some growers have is that persistent rains will wash pollen off the silks before fertilization occurs. However, pollen shed is not a continuous process. It stops when the tassel is too wet or too dry and begins again when temperature conditions are favorable. Pollen stands little chance of being washed off the silks during a rainstorm as little to none is shed when the tassel is wet. Also, silks are covered with fine, sticky hairs, which serve to catch and anchor pollen grains.Under favorable conditions, pollen grain remains viable for only 18 to 24 hours. However, the pollen grain starts growth of the pollen tube down the silk channel within minutes of coming in contact with a silk and the pollen tube grows the length of the silk and enters the female flower (ovule) in 12 to 28 hours. A well-developed ear shoot should have 750 to 1,000 ovules (potential kernels) each producing a silk. The silks from near the base of the ear emerge first and those from the tip appear last. Under good conditions, all silks will emerge and be ready for pollination within three to five days and this usually provides adequate time for all silks to be pollinated before pollen shed ceases.Pollen of a given plant rarely fertilizes all the silks of the same plant. Under field conditions 97% or more of the kernels produced by each plant may be pollinated by other plants in the field. The amount of pollen is rarely a cause of poor kernel set. Each tassel contains from 2 to 5 million pollen grains, which translates to 2,000 to 5,000 pollen grains produced for each silk of the ear shoot. Shortages of pollen are usually only a problem under conditions of extreme heat and drought. As noted above, poor kernel set is more often associated with poor timing of pollen shed with silk emergence — with silks emerging after pollen shed (poor “nick”). However, hybrids rarely exhibit this problem unless they experience extreme drought stress.last_img read more
