That is why an attempt will be made to set a new world record over this distance to mark the occasion.The Organisers of the 10K — SD Correcaminos (running club) and Valencia City Council — have selected the Ugandan athlete Joshua Cheptegei to make the attempt to beat the world record, currently set by the Kenyan runner Leonard Patrick Komon (26:44) in Utrecht on the 26th of September 2010.Cheptegei is a member of the NN Running Team, the world’s first professional athletics team and has trained hard for two months to be in tip-top form to compete in Valencia City of Running, on the 1st of December.The Ugandan athlete said earlier: “I want to beat the world record in Valencia, Ciudad del Running. I know it is a very fast circuit and that it has an amazing Finish. That’s why I hope to make history in what will be the last edition of the 10K Valencia Trinidad Alfonso”.Cheptegei, who arrived in Valencia early Thursday, is the reigning World 10,000m champion and 2019 World cross country champion.He is confident he will break the record. (video below)“I have one goal in Valencia, and that is to be the fastest man in history over 10km”, said the Ugandan athlete. This means he will have to beat 26:44, the present world record set by Leonard Komon. Valencia’s circuit makes it the best place to try for a new world record.Johua Cheptegei became only the second Ugandan athlete after legend John Akii-Bua to set a world best time, with his stunning run last year at the 15km NN Zevenheuvelenloop (Seven Hills Race) in Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
“As soon as he went on the machine, things started turning around. His CO2 levels remained between 34 and 40, where they were in the 60s and 70s before. Normal is about 35-40 and so it made a huge difference,” says Dr. Leslie Diaz an infectious disease specialist. In addition, Dr. Laroche, who practices at FoundCare in Palm Beach County, was able to again start breathing on his own.His brother, Paul Laroche, believes he contracted COVID-19 while seeing patients.Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center has two of the Hemolung machines. Officials there hope the devices will continue to be helpful in treating other patients battling the virus. Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is the only hospital in our state that has a newly-approved tool to treat patients who are fighting COVID-19.The gadget is called the Hemolung machine, and a doctor who is in the hospital’s intensive care unit is the first coronavirus patient there to be hooked up to it.Dr. Vladimir Laroche has been on a ventilator for 21 days after arriving at Gardens Medical Center on April 1. It was doing all of his breathing for him until doctors there received quick approval from the Food and Drug Administration to use the Hemolung machine.The machine functions like a dialysis machine but for the lungs. It removes carbon dioxide from the blood and replaces it with oxygen. The Hemolung was originally developed to treat people with COPD. However, the FDA has issued emergency authorization to use it to treat lung failure caused by the novel coronavirus.
In Spain the running of the bulls is popular but the Eagles found that flying over the Bulls to be most effective.Currently USO (University Prep, Sci-Tech, Obama Academy) is considered the best in the City League and proved that against Brashear. In a 51-6 win over the Bulls, Ronald Brown completed 28 aerials for 343 yards and 5 touchdowns last week at Cupples Stadium to improve to 4-0. Although, Brashear fell to 1-3, the game was much closer than the score.In the first quarter 290-pound, two-way tackle Jordan Mabin was playing like a man possessed and Brashear held the Eagles scoreless in the first quarter. However, Mabin suffered a high-ankle sprain on the final play of the quarter and the Eagles took advantage of his absence and two plays later Brown hit Nicholas Stallworth for a 65-yard touchdown and the rout was on.During his debut as USO’s quarterback, Brown completed passes for a western, Pennsylvania record 468 yards against Shenandoah Valley and he broke his own record by passing for 525 yards and seven scoring strikes in University Prep’s victory, 52-21, against Carrick.In four victories, everything is going as expected for Brown and the Eagles. In filling the vacancy caused by Akil Young’s matriculation to college football, Brown has completed 89 of 133 passes for 1,680 yards and 23 touchdowns. Currently, he ranks No. 1 in the City, WPIAL and State in passing.But, Brown has also honed his skills and mobility, in part to his early participation in the Homewood and Brushton Youth Football Association.“Ron has all the tools. His strength is his arm,” said Homewood Mighty Mites coach Kedric Starkey. “I knew he was a special back then. In a game against Lincoln we were down by five late in the game and he asked the coaches to put the ball in his hands. He took us 90 yards in seven straight passes to get us into the end zone. That’s when I knew how good this kid was.”His ability enhances his wide receivers. For example, against the Shenandoah Valley, Marcus Johnson caught five passes for 265 yards. While team objectives come first, Brown, who is only 5-foot-9, 150-pound junior, and Johnson, a 6-foot-1, 170-pound senior, understands that winning is critical to their personal success, too. Johnson is a potential Division I prospect. Hampton University made an offer and Pitt, Temple, Bowling Green and Toledo has expressed some interest. But what about “Downtown” Brown?“There’s so much talent in the City League, but they often get passed over by recruiters because of their off-the-field antics and behavior.We as a staff are committed to helping these young men carry themselves in a respectable manner while teaching a little football as well,” said former Pittsburgh Steelers and current USO’s Defensive Coach Mike Logan. “Ronald Brown makes it easy to coach when his football IQ is on point. He understands what we are trying to do. If he was over 6’0 he would be a top prospect!”Brown’s other touchdowns went to Clay Moorefield (7 yards), Stephon Hawthorne (44 yards) and Marcus Johnson (20 and 30 yards). Stallworth also returned an interception 41 yards for a touchdown.Quarterback Angelo Reed ran 11 yards for Brashear’s only touchdown.USO will look for win No. 4 in the City League showdown when they battle Allderdice on Oct. 4 at Cupples Stadium Follow @NewPghCourier on Twitter https://twitter.com/NewPghCourierLike us at https://www.facebook.com/pages/New-Pittsburgh-Courier/143866755628836?ref=hlDownload our mobile app at http://www.appshopper.com/news/new-pittsburgh-courier RONALD BROWN passed for 343 yards and 5 touchdowns in leading USO over Brashear.

LETTERKENNY AC’s Mark English easily qualified for the men’s 800m semi-finals of the World Junior Track & Field Championships in Barcelona, Spain today.English won his heat in a time of 1 minute 51.74 seconds, after the Ethiopian athlete Fiker Belete was disqualified.The pace from the gun was pedestrian with the leaders reaching the 200m point in just under 28 seconds. English at this stage was positioned in the middle of the pack; within sight of the leaders. The real racing began at the 600m point when the Ethiopian athlete Belete kicked for home. English showed a great turn of speed propelling himself up to second place, a position he would hold until the finish. As it turned out Belete was disqualified for a lane infringement, which meant English was declared the winner on the heat.Team mate Karl Griffin (Tir Chonaill AC) was also competing in the men’s 800m; he was drawn in the seventh and final heat. Griffin found himself slightly off the pace as the pack went through the bell in 53 seconds. From there Griffin rallied well and battled hard to get on terms with the other athletes. However the gaps proved too much and Griffin finished seventh in a time of 1.51.98. The race was won by Brandon McBride of Canada in 1.49.77.Earlier in the programme Sarah Lavin (Emerald AC) finished third in her heat of the 100m hurdles to qualify automatically for the semi-finals. Lavin made a positive start to the race and moved over the barriers with great fluency. The race was won by Michelle Jenneke in a time of 13.52, while Lavin recorded a time of 13.90 for third place. The semi-finals are scheduled for 17.35 Irish time on Saturday 14th of July.Ireland’s throwers Dempsey McGuigan (Finn Valley AC) and James McCabe (Dunboyne AC) were competing in the men’s hammer throw qualification. Irish Junior Record Holder McGuigan was in group A and opened with a solid 68.33m, he then improved with his final effort with a throw of 69.07m. That mark was good enough for tenth place within his pool. McCabe was up next in group B and threw a massive personal best of 69.49m in the first round. This was the first time that Mc Cabe had thrown over 69m and for it to come at a major competition, demonstrates his championships metal. This was McCabe’s longest throw of the competition as he finished in tenth place within his pool.The results meant that McCabe and McGuigan finished 18th and 20th respectively in the overall competition. The competition amongst these two young throwers will surely push them on to greater things over the coming years.

For more than a decade the Western Cape NGO Starting Chance has been making early childhood development programmes more accessible across the province. Its latest event is hosting nearly 1,000 preschool children at its Fair Play Fun Day on 5 August.More than 40% of children in the Western Cape under the age of five have no access to early childhood development facilities. In an effort to make ECD more accessible, Cape Town NGO Starting Chance trains and supports educators throughout the province. (Image: Mathiba Molefe)Play Your Part ReporterProper early childhood development (ECD) can go a long way towards helping a child grow into a healthy adult, providing them with the strong foundation they need to tackle the many issues they will face as they grow up.In a bid to help the children of the Western Cape build this foundation, Cape Town NGO Starting Chance has, for more than a decade, been fuelling the growth of ECD programmes throughout the province.In this spirit, during Women’s Month, the organisation has joined hands with nine educare centres and schools in hosting nearly 1,000 preschool children at its Fair Play Fun Day on 5 August at Mfuleni High School in Blue Downs, Cape Town.“Partnering with the local high school, preschools and primary schools and engaging parents means we can support and impact the rate of change of the education process,” says Starting Chance founder Ian Corbett.Each of the schools and educare centres will make games using recycled material for the children to play with during the fun day.Starting Chance will also be responsible for the food stalls on the day. The proceeds from the stalls will go towards upgrading schools in the area and providing educators and caregivers with the training and teaching materials they need to mould young minds.“Our experience on this project has shown that by working together, we can make significant change possible,” Corbett said.The children will also be joined by members of the surrounding communities to celebrate Women’s Month with the mothers, female entrepreneurs and teachers who run the various educare centres. (Image: Mathiba Molefe)Not all heroes wear capesThe collective has extended an invitation to the public to join them as a volunteer at the fun day and help bring it to life and share in the enriching experience. You can also help out by sponsoring R30 games and food coupon booklet for the children who cannot afford them.To learn more, support or volunteer, visit www.startingchance.org.za or call Ali on 082 491 1171.The children will also be joined by members of the surrounding communities to celebrate Women’s Month with the mothers, female entrepreneurs and teachers who run the various educare centres.Corbett believes the event is an ideal way to empower educare entrepreneurs with a networking and fundraising opportunity, while helping them to develop their businesses and the standard of ECD in the area.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Heavy farm machinery compacts the soil, both on tilled ground and no-tilled ground. Compaction induced by agricultural machinery often affects soil properties and crop production. Axle load is the first factor that has to be considered in soil compaction, according to Randall Reeder, Ohio State University Emeriti and Sjoerd Duiker, Penn State Soil Specialist.Axle load is the total load supported by one axle, usually expressed in tons or pounds. Farm equipment with high axle loads on wet soil will cause compaction in the topsoil and subsoil, whereas low axle loads will cause compaction in the topsoil and the upper part of the subsoil only.Deep subsoil compaction can only partially be alleviated with subsoilers, and at considerable cost. Freezing/thawing and drying/wetting cycles have been shown not to remediate soil compaction at this depth.Finally, biological activity (such as cover crops) is concentrated in the topsoil except deep root crops (e.g. radish or annual ryegrass) and therefore also contributes little to alleviation of deep subsoil compaction. Therefore, avoiding deep subsoil compaction is critical. The key to eliminating deep subsoil compaction is to keep axle load low.Research has shown that a 10-ton axle load almost always causes deep subsoil compaction (more than 20 inches deep) under wet to moist field conditions. If the soil is dry, deep subsoil compaction is less likely, even with high axle loads.Contact pressure is the pressure that is exerted by a tire or track on the soil surface, expressed in pounds per square inch (psi). Reducing contact pressures will cause less topsoil compaction. In completely flexible tires, surface contact pressure is similar to tire pressure. Tires run at 35 psi caused higher stresses at 14 inches depth and created ruts that were more than twice as deep as tires run at 12 psi tire pressure. However, at 22 inches, no difference was noted in measured stress between both tires because the tire load was the same.Deep subsoil compaction is permanent and should be avoided at all costs. This can be done by keeping axle loads below 10 tons, and preferably below 6 tons. Compaction in the topsoil can be avoided by reducing tire pressure, using flotation tires, doubles, radial tires, or tracks, and by employing large-diameter tires. Reducing the number of trips over the field and reducing the total area per acre actually traveled are recommended. Driving on soil that is wetter than the plastic limit (soil crumbles, ideal for tillage) should be avoided at all times.More information can be found at https://extension.psu.edu/avoiding-soil-compaction.
By the time Nadal was biting the handle of the U.S. Open trophy on Sunday night , his usual way of celebrating a tournament victory, he had raised his career Grand Slam championship count to 16: three at Flushing Meadows, an unprecedented 10 at the French Open (including this June, shortly after turning 31), two at Wimbledon and one at the Australian Open.That moved him back within three of Federer, whose 19 is the record among men: an unprecedented eight at the All England Club (including in July, shortly before turning 36), five at the U.S. Open, four at the Australian Open (including in January) and one at Roland Garros.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“Of course, (it’s) something difficult to imagine, eight months ago or nine months ago, that we will be winning two Grand Slams each,” Nadal said. “But here we are.”Indeed, in January, it sure appeared that the two greats of the game had left their best days behind.

(AP Photo/Julio Cortez)NEW YORK — Who would have guessed at the start of 2017 that Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer would divvy up the year’s four Grand Slam titles?And who could possibly pretend to know what 2018 will bring for them?ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles03:07PH billiards team upbeat about gold medal chances in SEA Games01:37Protesters burn down Iran consulate in Najaf01:47Panelo casts doubts on Robredo’s drug war ‘discoveries’01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games Nadal’s drought without so much as one appearance in a major semifinal had stretched to about 2½ years.By the end of the Australian Open, though, they were squaring off to decide the title.It was the pair’s ninth Grand Slam final against each other — it’s happened at least twice at each major except the U.S. Open, where they have never met — but first since the 2011 French Open.At the time, Nadal said Sunday, “I was surprised.”But he wasn’t taken aback by what he and Federer were able to do later in the year. It was clear — to Nadal, to everyone — that they were once again capable of being the dominant figures in their sport.“To come back and win all four Grand Slams was quite an achievement, regardless of how good they are. There is a lot of very tough competition,” said Kevin Anderson, the first-time major finalist who failed to put up too much of a fight in a 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 loss to the No. 1-ranked Nadal.“When they’re healthy, I think they have so many skills they can rely on. In addition to that is just the amount of experience they have had,” Anderson said. “Playing at this level, I think they feel very comfortable, and obviously they might get nervous, but just like anything, the more you do it, the more used to it you get.”It didn’t hurt that the three men who are next in the pecking order all had down years and injury issues: Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Stan Wawrinka. All missed the U.S. Open. All could return to contention for big prizes next year.Add in that trio’s major totals (Djokovic has 12, Murray and Wawrinka three apiece), and since the start of the 2005 French Open, the top five men have won 49 of the past 51 Grand Slam championships.Still, after all this time, there are still two who stand alone at the top: Rafa and Roger.

I just do my way. He does his way,” Nadal responded. “Let’s see when we finish, no?” View comments
