One of Crumlin Hospital’s champion fundraisers will be handing over the reins of the popular New Year’s Walk/Run in Downings after 2020.Eleanor Mooney will celebrate her final year organising the charity walk, which has grown substantially in the last 19 years.Thanks to the hard-work of Eleanor and her helpers, the event has has raised over €338,000 over the last 19 years in aid of CMRF Crumlin who raise vital funds for Crumlin Children’s Hospital. Eleanor MooneyDublin native Eleanor Mooney organised her first New Year’s Day Walk/Run in 2000 – “I was working in support services in Letterkenny at the time and gave sponsorship cards to some of my contacts. I was delighted that many of them came out for the walk on New Year’s Day bringing some of their friends and family with them. We collected €3,300 that day. It was the start of our New Year’s tradition.”The numbers of walkers and runners increased year on year. In 2000, three runners took part compared to 2019 when around 100 runners joined in.Eleanor was a supporter of CMRF Crumlin before she started the New Year’s Walk/Run, organising raffles to raise funds.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest In terms of civilization, it is more valuable than gold. The soil is the foundation for food and stability required for organized, structured society. Without good, productive soils, everything else starts to erode away. The loss of productive soil is a sad tale that shows up over and over throughout the history of mankind.This repeated trend throughout the earth’s millennia of agriculture intrigued David Montgomery, a geologist at the University of Washington in Seattle, who spoke at the Conservation Tillage and Technology Conference in March.“As a geologist I started looking at soils and studied erosion around the world. A decade ago I got really interested in how soil erosion affected ancient civilizations. That culminated in a book that looked at the role of soil degradation in the decline of ancient civilizations. There is a depressing component to that because you see the same story play out in society after society. Societies that degraded their land didn’t prosper in the long run. You can look at places like Syria or Libya as modern examples of places that degraded their land to the extent that it compromised their descendants greatly in terms of their prosperity and stability,” Montgomery said. “Then my wife and I bought a house in north Seattle that came with a yard with dirt — not much in the way of soil. It had an old growth Seattle lawn with six inches of tangled roots. We pulled that lawn off to make a garden and we didn’t find a single worm. It was dead dirt. We embarked on an attempt to bring life back to the soil to make a garden.”In the small-scale urban backyard project, Montgomery and his wife had surprising success in rebuilding their soil with the addition or organic matter, increasing biological diversity and minimizing soil disturbance.“We restored the soil really fast, much faster than I would have guessed from the research I had done on ancient civilizations. Nature takes a long time to make an inch of soil, but we can do it much faster by taking advantage of our ability to bring organic matter in to enhance what nature would take a long time to do. We wrote a book about that experience and the parallels between what microbial activity does in the soil to help plants and what happens in the human gut. They are kind of like the same system. Then I was left wondering if we could do that same thing on a global scale on farms around the world,” Montgomery said. “I took some time off of teaching at the University of Washington in Seattle to visit farmers around the world who had already restored fertility to their land. I brought a shovel with me and said, ‘What’d you do? What did you start with and what do you have now? Can we dig a hole here and at your neighbor’s place?’ I was really impressed how rapidly some farmers had been able to restore fertility to their land and how much they had been able to reduce their use of fertilizers and pesticides. No-till was a sort of foundation for re-building soil health.”The crucial role of reducing and eliminating tillage initially surprised Montgomery.“What do you think of in terms of icons for agriculture? The plow. It is on the seal of the USDA — Thomas Jefferson’s plow is still there. Societies throughout history have relied on it. The idea that plowing could degrade soil over the long run is a little counter intuitive but it is pretty solid in terms of causing soil erosion. If you till the soil you are leaving it vulnerable to the wind and the rain until the next plant comes up. If you do that for generations it can really add up,” Montgomery said. “I found three simple principles that were in common among the farmers who had reversed the trend of ancient soil degradation and rebuilt the fertility of the land. The principles are: ditch the plow, cover up with cover crops, and grow a diversity of crops, whether in the cash crops or cover crops. Some of the farmers I visited with were growing corn, soybeans and wheat and adding diversity with cover crops in between. They had all greatly reduced fertilizers and pesticides while maintaining yields, which increases farmer profits. I view rebuilding soil health as the best long-term investment a farmer can make but it can also pencil out over the short run too. We are starting to learn about the role of soil life bacteria and fungi in plants and crops. They can help rebuild soil health at a pace that, as a geologist I find quite fast.”Montgomery’s first popular book, “Dirt,” was a fairly grim look at how erosion undermined ancient civilizations around the world. The follow up “Growing a Revolution: Bringing Our Soil Back to Life,” is more of a good-news environmental story. Montgomery’s most recent book, “The Hidden Half of Nature,” co-written with his wife, Anne Biklé, looks at the power of microbes in the soil and in human health. His books are available at books.wwnorton.com/books/Growing-a-Revolution/.
3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Related Posts alex williams IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Multiple domain support is a standard of Microsoft Exchange. Multiple domain support is offered through its online services but there are limits on the number of domains available.Zoho also supports multiple domains. According to Raju Vegesna:“A typical business has multiple domains associated (imagine RWW having readwriteweb.com, rww.com, rrweb.com etc). Now you may want to create email addresses, subdomains etc for each of these domains. Supporting multiple domains lets you do things like create aliases that work with all domains. For example, you have email@example.com, but you can easily create aliases so that firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com can point to your actual email address. There are several other advantages with supporting multiple domains. In our case, we have three divisions (Zoho, ManageEngine, WebNMS etc). For each of the divisions, we have separate email addresses with that domain name and then sub-domains, product names etc. Managing all these from a single console is a unified experience. That is how we internally use it. But we have several customers who use it in other ways.”Multiple domain support is available for Google Apps Premiere and Education edition users at no additional charge. Google Apps now has multi-domain support, allowing organizations with two or more domains to manage from a single control panel. Until now, Google Apps permitted one domain per account. That has become an issue, especially for larger organizations, migrating employees on multiple domains. Companies would either set up other domains as domain aliases or set up different Google Apps accounts for each domain.According to the blog !escunid , this is how the process worked before: Source: !escunid Online Business DevelopmentThe new multi-domain support is an admin control that allows people on different domains to keep their email addresses but see co-workers from other domains in the organization’s global address book.

As Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray returned to the city from his two-day tour of Ayodhya as a part of his mission to construct the Ram temple, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said that the temple issue is not political. Mr. Fadnavis, who was in Karad to pay tribute at the memorial of the State’s first Chief Minister Y.B. Chavan, said, “Shri Ram is a deity for the entire country, he (Mr. Thackeray) will get his blessings too,” he said.Mr. Thackeray, who offered prayers at the Ram Lalla temple in Ayodhya on Sunday, said the BJP government at the Centre “may not last” if the temple is not constructed and demanded an ordinance for it. The Sena chief returned to the city on Sunday afternoon where he was welcomed by a large number of party workers and leaders amidst loud sloganeering and victory chants. At home, Mr. Thackeray and other Sena leaders offered prayers before a photo of party founder late Bal Thackeray. Prior to leaving Ayodhya, in a press conference there, Mr. Thackeray questioned why the BJP had made promises in its manifesto if everything was going to be as per the Supreme Court. Meanwhile, State BJP president Raosaheb Danve said the Sena’s stand on the Ram temple is similar to that of his party’s. “The Sena has not backed the BJP recently, but we have been together for decades. To avoid division of votes, the Sena is going to be our partner for the general and Assembly elections next year,” he said. However, the Sena had earlier said that it will fight all the upcoming elections solo.The Opposition criticised the Sena over its Ayodhya visit. “This is a political stunt targeted at polarising Hindu-Muslim voters. Had this government fulfilled its election promises, they would not need to do this,” said State Congress president Ashok Chavan. Leader of Opposition in State Assembly Radhakrishna Vikhe-Patil asked if the Sena immersed its letters of resignations from the State government in the Sarayu river while offering prayers. “At a time when Maharashtra is battling drought, such events are like rubbing salt on the wounds of the people,” he said.
MANILA, Philippines—The top three picks in the upcoming 2018 PBA Draft are practically secured for CJ Perez, Robert Bolick, and Bobby Ray Parks. Jr. but it doesn’t mean the remaining aspirants are going to be pushovers.ADVERTISEMENT Of the coaches present in the Combine, probably the one with the most pressure is Meralco head coach Norman Black.Meralco owns the no.5 pick in the Draft and Black said he’s looking at those players who didn’t receive that much fanfare as compared to the potential top three picks.“We have guys in mind but a lot of that will depend on who is the no.4 pick,” said Black. “You normally see guys whom you haven’t probably seen before and you have a chance to see guys who are mostly under the radar. It just gave me a second and third chance to reinforce what I saw in practice.”For NLEX assistant coach Sandy Arespacochaga, picking a player doesn’t just rely on what place a team is on the board but it also depends on the needs of a given roster.The Road Warriors own the seventh overall pick in the Draft and they’re looking to get someone who’ll mesh well with the current roster that they have.“We’re really thinking hard for this one because it’s not just the position of the player that we’re looking for,” said Arespacochaga. “We’re also looking at the talent who can help us and fit in our team.”Another coach who has a conundrum in this year’s Combine is TNT’s Bong Ravena whose team’s pick will be dealt to Rain or Shine after the KaTropa traded for Jericho Cruz in February of 2018.Ravena said they’re in a position where they don’t have many players to choose from and that they’re left to select the best quality player that best fits the roster.

Now, these two games against Ajax are really big. They have been such a strong team, they’ve got points on the board and they will give us a problem.”In terms of the atmosphere in the stadium, they are going to be strong. The movement and the way they play football is going to be a big test for us. We go there relatively confident so let’s take on the challenge.”I think everything is an education in football. Today we were trying to break down a team with 10 men behind the ball a lot of the time. Lille was a big education for Champions League debuts for Tammy, Mason [Mount], Fikayo [Tomori] and Reece [James].”Another one with Ajax who are a top-level team who have managed to get to the semi-finals. They have good players who play a certain way. Off the ball, you have to be fully concentrated. In terms of what they can do to you, how they play, so yes, it is a big challenge.”Chelsea have three points from their first two matches, while Ajax are top of the group with six points.

The 41.16 Law “If the non-striker is out of his/her ground from the moment the ball comes into play to the instant when the bowler would normally have been expected to release the ball, the bowler is permitted to attempt to run him/her out. Whether the attempt is successful or not, the ball shall not count as one in the over. If the bowler fails in an attempt to run out the non-striker, the umpire shall call and signal Dead ball as soon as possible.” Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhFirst Instance India’s Vinoo Mankad, after whom the rule is named, was among the earliest bowlers to run a non-striker out. On December 13, 1947, during India’s tour of Australia, Mankad had run out Bill Brown when Brown had left the crease before he delivered the ball. Since then, this tactic has been referred as ‘Mankading’.Bradman’s Reaction “An early sensation came in Australia’s innings when Brown was once more run out by Mankad, who, in the act of delivering the ball, held on to it and whipped the bails off with Brown well out of his crease. Immediately, in some quarters, Mankad’s sportsmanship was questioned. For the life of me, I cannot understand why. The laws of cricket make it quite clear that the non-striker must keep within his ground until the ball has been delivered.”There have also been situations when bowlers have decided against this particular form of dismissal. For instance, in the 1987 World Cup, West Indies fast bowler Courtney Walsh had refrained from running out Saleem Jaffar – eventually losing the game. It is definitely not a binding question of upholding spirit, rather it is a personal choice that mustn’t be unlawfully enforced.
