Finn Harps will be looking to put to an end a winless run of five games when Shamrock Rovers ‘B’ visit Finn Park on Friday evening (kick-off 8pm).Harps haven’t won in any of their last five games, picking up just two home draws with Wexford Youths and Galway FC.Since beating the Hoops 3-0 at Tallaght earlier in the season, they have managed just one victory – that coming in the following game against Cobh Ramblers at Finn Park. The three away losses though came against the teams that many feel will be the top three at the end of the season – Shelbourne, Longford Town and Waterford United.Shamrock Rovers second string come to Ballybofey on Friday evening having won two of their last three games and sit level on points with Harps in the League table with just goal difference separating the clubs.“Shamrock Rovers have improved a lot since we played them last March, so Friday’s game will be very difficult,” said Harps boss Ollie Horgan ahead of this weekend’s game. “They have beaten both Longford and Cobh in last couple of weeks and will prove tough opposition for us.”Harps have lost their last two games – both on the road – and while Horgan felt they should have got something out of the Longford game a fortnight ago, he said they got exactly what the deserved last weekend in Waterford – nothing. “For the first 15 minutes in Waterford we were the better side but the first goal changed all that,” said Horgan. “From there on we didn’t deserve anything out of game even when they were reduced to ten men.“Our performances up to the Waterford game were hard working and honest. We were a little unlucky to lose in Longford and Shelbourne but we had no excuses on Friday in what was a disappointing display except for the start of the game,” continued Horgan as he reflected on the 2-0 defeat.“The Longford result was down to a poor penalty decision but Waterford game was down to too many players off form and a couple of individual errors thrown in on top of that. The work rate wasn’t anywhere near what it was in previous games. Having said that, Waterford have improved since we played them on the opening day of the season.”Tommy Bonner is available for selection again after missing last week’s trip to Waterford through suspension. Keith Cowan serves the third game of his four match ban while Kevin McHugh (hamstring) remains sidelined. Ruairi Keating picked up a knock in Waterford and will be assessed before Friday’s game.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TEAM NEWSSuspended: Keith Cowan.Doubtful: Ruairi Keating.Injured: Kevin McHugh (hamstring).

17 February 2012A major industrialisation drive across Africa is needed for the continent to transform its current growth spurt into sustained social and economic development, Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies told the South Africa-Turkey Business Forum in Istanbul on Thursday.Davies said that a general improvement in economic governance across Africa underpinned the growth spurt the continent was experiencing. “However, the challenge facing Africa is to transform that growth spurt into a sustained effort and development.The business forum included break-away sessions and business-to-business meetings between South African and Turkish business people.Africa ‘can’t grow on raw material exports alone’Davies told the meeting that Africa could not continue to grow simply on the basis of the supply of raw materials to fuel industrialisation processes taking place elsewhere.He stressed that in order to address this, the continent had to engage “in a series of exciting ventures to boost and expand regional integration”.According to the minister, lack of infrastructure as well as the lack of productive capacity were the biggest barriers to inter-regional trade in Africa.“To overcome this, we need to promote a significant industrialisation effort across the continent.”SA, Turkey trade ‘well below potential’Davies told the forum that bilateral relations between South Africa and Turkey were currently well below their potential.In 2009, trade between South Africa and Turkey decreased significantly, mainly due to the global economic crisis.In total, trade decreased from R10.6-billion in 2008 to R5.1-billion in 2009 and further to R4.9-billion in 2010, after an upward trend from 2006 to 2008.“The trade decrease is of concern, but there is certainly room to grow the volume of two-way trade and investment, create a more diversified balance of SA exports, a greater proportion of beneficiated and higher value goods and services in our export basket to Turkey.”Later on Thursday, Davies was due to co-chair the second session of the Turkey-South Africa Joint Economic Commission, which promotes trade, investment and economic co-operation between the two countries.Source: BuaNews
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Peggy Kirk Hall, Associate Professor and Director, OSU Agricultural & Resource Law ProgramThe legislative Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review (JCARR) has voted to send the “watersheds in distress” rule revisions back to the Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA). JCARR reviews administrative rules to make sure they follow legal requirements. The “watersheds in distress” rules seek to address agricultural nutrient impacts on water quality. At its December meeting, JCARR members voted 8 to 1 to recommend that ODA revise and refile the rules for consideration at JCARR’s next meeting on Jan. 22, 2019.The Jan. 22 meeting date effectively removes Governor Kasich’s administration from the rules revision. Kasich issued an executive order last July directing his agencies to prepare the controversial rule package. But the incoming DeWine Administration will control the fate of the rules after Jan. 14, 2019. JCARR is apparently counting on the new administration to take a different approach on agricultural nutrient pollution reduction.“There will be a new administration and we’ll have maybe more productive talks,” said JCARR’s chair, Sen. Joe Uecker (R-Loveland). “The DeWine Administration has demonstrated an interest on working with stakeholders on this issue.”The lack of stakeholder involvement was a common concern voiced by JCARR members, who stated that the rules had been rushed and did not involve all of the interested parties. Several committee members also suggested that the rules are inconsistent with legislative intent and will have a significant adverse impact on farmers. The Ohio Soybean Association, Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association, and Ohio Farm Bureau echoed those criticisms to JCARR members while several local residents, local groups and the Ohio Environmental Council testified that the rules would not sufficiently protect water quality.If ODA fails to refile the rules proposal for the January meeting, JCARR will have 31 days to recommend that the Ohio General Assembly invalidate the rules. That action would allow each chamber five days to pass a resolution invalidating the rules. If the concurrent resolution does not pass within that time period, the rules would stand. Alternatively, ODA could remove the proposal from JCARR’s agenda and refile revised rules at a later date, a likely course of action for the incoming DeWine administration.
The score you see written on the scoreboard is always accurate. It will never protect your feelings, nor does it have the power to change the score it presents to you. Your scoreboard only tells you the full truth.About Your Theories and BeliefsYou might believe with all your heart that you should be able to generate a result in a certain. The theory you have about what is necessary to create the result seems perfectly reasonable to you. But the results are not forthcoming. Instead, you languish without the desired effect, stubbornly clinging to your theories and your beliefs.It is early in the morning, and you are facing West, watching for the Sun to rise.The scoreboard will tell you that your beliefs and your theories are incorrect. If you want to change the score, you have to change your beliefs and assumptions that don’t produce the result you want. If you don’t change your expectations and your theories about how things work, you are not growing. Growing is necessary for you to improve your score.About Your EffortYour theories and beliefs are accurate. You are still not producing the result you want, as indicated by the scoreboard. The scoreboard may be telling you that you are not putting forth enough effort to improve your outcomes. Your work ethic is one of the variables of success that is wholly within your control.You want the better result, but you also want to sleep for twenty-seven more minutes, and so you hit the snooze button three times. You want to focus on your priorities, but instead of doing the work, you stare blankly at your computer screen.Your scoreboard is of no help to you. It doesn’t recognize your good intentions as being worthy of an increase to the score. The scoreboard is detached, impartial, and clinical, only reflecting your actual results—or your lack thereof. Should you want a better result, it will require effort, and likely more than you think.About Your StrategiesThe way you go about something, your strategy, maybe wildly different than someone else’s. But one of you might produce a much more significant result while the other produces no result at all. Whether the strategy works or not is of no concern to the scoreboard.Your strategy is to rely solely on inbound marketing to reach your goals, no cold outreach. Your plan for making more money is to get rich on the internet, executed by your buying get rich on the internet programs from people who only got rich by selling get rich quick schemes on the internet.Your scoreboard doesn’t judge you (or the people who sell picks and shovels outside the gold mine). It’s a completely neutral party. While I am rooting for you (and so is your Mom), the scoreboard isn’t. If it doesn’t see results, it refuses to change. If you want the score to improve, you may have to change your strategy.About Your ExecutionSo your beliefs and theories are excellent and correct. You are putting forth the effort. And your strategy is a proven recipe that countless people before you have used to find success and run up the score. The scoreboard, however, has not changed. You believe it isn’t giving you the score you deserve. To put up points, you have to execute.You are mostly doing what other people to produce the result you want, but your execution is poor. It could be that you need more time to improve your competency, or it could be that you are trying to cheat by taking shortcuts, avoiding the difficult but necessary components of execution. The recipe is well-known, but you are not using the ingredients as prescribed.The scoreboard knows excellent execution when it sees it. When everything is done right and produces a result, it changes the score. When it is done poorly and fails to provide the result, it refuses to change. If you want the scoreboard to reflect a better rating, you have to execute well enough to produce the result.About the Fact That You Need to ChangeThe scoreboard will tell you that you need to change. It will tell you that your score isn’t what you want it to be, and it will also provide you with an indication as to how others are doing as a comparison. It is the most neutral of all parties, never blaming you or criticizing you. It merely reflects the score.By providing you with your score, it gives an objective view of how you are doing. Maybe you are happy with your score. But if you are not pleased by the score it provides, you are getting feedback that what you’re doing isn’t working and that you need to change. The game doesn’t change for you because it doesn’t change for anybody.If you want the scoreboard to change, you have to go first. It will not change unless and until you change. This is true when what got you to this point is inadequate for the improved score you want now. The higher the score, the more you are going to have to do to produce the result. The result is the only thing the scoreboard measures.The Truth About Your FutureThe scoreboard tells the truth about your future. It shows you where you are now, and it provides a glimpse of your trajectory. You can see your direction and your velocity.Your score is not immutable; you have the power to change the score, change your trajectory, and change your velocity. You are capable of pulling results forward in time, but you can just easily push them into the future, a future that is moving towards you faster than you might imagine.It is within your power to change the score. But your scoreboard is only capable of telling the truth. If you want it to show a better result, you have to provide it with the better result you want it to reflect. Essential Reading!
