Join your friends for a low-key Friday night.2020 KEYNOTE SPEAKERSJay HillJay Hill seeks to inspire the less than 2% of us in agriculture to keep fighting for what we believe in. His story started with 10 acres and a 4020 John Deere and is now over 17,000 acres with 120 employees. Jay claims it was not him that grew the farm, it was finding the right team of people to push him deeper into agriculture and the absolute love of it. His message is about tolerance between the farmer and consumer, and gaining understanding between the two sides: the importance of when to share information from the farm and when to listen to the consumer, finding the right time and message to send, and when and when not to respond. Jay wants people to walk out of the room full of energy and fresh ideas that they can use on their operations.Amberley SnyderAmberley shares her experience from living the perfect life to it all crashing in an instant. A rollover accident leaving her paralyzed changes everything. She learns how accepting help and serving others can be such an important part of life. Amberley shows how life knocked her down, but with the help of her family, friends and faith she has worked to “get back on the horse.”ABOUT YOUNG AG PROFESSIONALSOhio Farm Bureau Young Agricultural Professionals are 18 to 35, singles and married, who are interested in improving the business of agriculture, learning new ideas and developing leadership skills.

Neymar calls Barca president a ‘joke’

first_imgBrazilian forward Neyma. AFP PHOTO/ JAVIER SORIANO / AFP PHOTO / JAVIER SORIANONeymar labelled Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu a “joke” as the war of wards between Barcelona’s beleaguered board and the Brazilian star continued on Tuesday.In interviews with Catalan newspapers Mundo Deportivo and Sport, Bartomeu claimed Barca would be better off without Neymar this season following his world record 222 million euro ($263.7 million) move to Paris Saint-Germain.ADVERTISEMENT With Bartomeu’s handling of Barca’s haphazard transfer policy being heavily criticised, he described the loss of Neymar as an “opportunity” for Barca to rebuild their midfield rather than pile resources into a superstar front three of Neymar, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.“The trident was very good but it had its consequences,” Bartomeu told Sport.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“It is an opportunity to return to the collective football in the middle of the field, which traditionally was Barca’s strength.“It is an opportunity, with a new coach, a new project.

Bartomeu also criticised Neymar and his father and agent Neymar Sr’s exit strategy.“This president is a joke,” Neymar replied in a comment about the news on social media site Instagram.A vote of no confidence motion has been launched by former Barca presidential candidate Agusti Benedito that could oust Bartomeu if it receives enough support from the club’s members in the coming weeks.Neymar’s departure sparked a shopping spree from Barca, who landed 20-year-old French winger Ousmane Dembele for an initial 105 million euro fee from Borussia Dortmund and Paulinho for 40 million from Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande.However, Barca missed out on a host of other targets, including Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho, blaming the rampant inflation in the transfer market caused by PSG and Abu Dhabi-backed Manchester City.ADVERTISEMENT LOOK: Venues for 2019 SEA Games Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles02:34Robredo calls for scrapping of ‘Oplan Tokhang’01:37Protesters 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 SEA Games in Calabarzon safe, secure – Solcom chief MOST READ La Liga has asked UEFA to investigate both PSG and City for breaches of financial fair play rules.“Qatar and Abu Dhabi are two countries that have two clubs,” added Bartomeu.“If Bayern Munich, Manchester United, Real Madrid or Arsenal buy a player from you, you know (the money) comes from football.“But these two clubs distort the market.”Bartomeu also insisted a four-year contract extension for Lionel Messi has been signed by the player’s agent and father, Jorge Horacio Messi.Barca announced an agreement with the five-time World Player of the Year in July, but Messi himself is yet to put pen to paper amid rumours he is unhappy with the running of the club.Messi’s current deal expires in 2018 meaning he could leave Barca for free next summer.“It is all agreed and signed,” Bartomeu added.“There are three contracts: one with Messi’s foundation, that is signed by the president of the foundation and the player’s brother; a contract with Leo Messi’s image rights, that his father and administrator of his company have signed; and the work contract that Leo’s father has signed.” WATCH: Streetboys show off slick dance moves in Vhong Navarro’s wedding Catriona Gray spends Thanksgiving by preparing meals for people with illnesses Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Read Next UPLB exempted from SEA Games class suspensionlast_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Liverpool legend Carragher adamant they can win leagueby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool legend Jamie Carragher is convinced his old club can win the Premier League title this season.Carragher told Sky Sports that they are now looking like champions in the making.”City, in the last 18 months, have just gone away from everyone,” he said. “There was no real challenge last season. It felt like the season was over at this stage last season.”The fact Liverpool are with them now it maybe asks questions of this Man City side that we haven’t seen before.”I’m sure they’ll answer them, I’m not questioning them in that way, but I think it’s nice we have someone chasing this City side.”This City side is a special side, and I think over the next four or five years we will be speaking about a special team in this Premier League era. But could a side win the league three or four years on the bounce?”The great Manchester United sides found that difficult. There’s always someone who wins the league out of nowhere. Could this be the season when someone else actually wins it, and could it be Liverpool.”Liverpool can win the league.” last_img read more

first_imgMan Utd defender Harry Maguire won’t change his styleby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United defender Harry Maguire says his style fits well with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s system.Maguire will not be changing is his willingness to bring the ball out from the back and link play with the midfield and forwards.”I definitely feel like it’s the modern game, bringing it out from the back and it’s something I do thrive on,” Maguire told United Review.”I want to step in and help the team going forward by starting attacks well and threading balls through the lines, to try and get people on the half-turn to play forward.”I think it’s a big part of the game now, for centre-backs not just to defend, but to have a big part in keeping the ball, controlling the game and starting attacks.”My game will improve the more I know my team-mates and the more I experience I have of playing with them, the position they take up, the way they want to receive the ball and the areas in which I receive the ball so I know where my team-mates will be without having to look and try to find them.”It will improve and I’m sure I’ll improve throughout the season, playing with my team-mates more and improving my relationship with Vic (Victor Lindelof). We will improve as a team as well and we’ve got to improve.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgD'Angelo Russell throws crazy pass vs. Maryland.The Ohio State men’s basketball team fell on the road to Iowa Saturday afternoon, 76-67. Buckeyes’ freshman guard D’Angelo Russell, as he’s done basically all season, shined in defeat.
