Murkowski Continues Fight For Clear Labels On GE Salmon

first_imgMurkowski: “I have long opposed any introduction of GE salmon into U.S. markets until clear labeling rules have been established to inform consumers that they are purchasing a genetically engineered salmon product. The Senate Appropriations Committee has agreed with me, year after year.” Senator Murkowski introduced the Genetically Engineered Salmon Labeling Act to ensure that any GE salmon products in the U.S. market are clearly labeled “genetically engineered” in the market name. In a release from the Senator, this provision follows the USDA publishing ‘inadequate labeling guidelines for genetically engineered foods’, including GE salmon. These guidelines didn’t require mandatory labeling of GE salmon, but instead allow producers to use QR codes or 1-800 numbers for more information. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), has been fighting the good fight for years working to prevent the introduction of genetically engineered (GE) salmon to the U.S. market until they are clearly labeled as such.center_img Murkowski announced a provision within the Agriculture Appropriations bill for Fiscal Year 2020 to prevent the introduction of genetically engineered (GE) salmon to the U.S. market until a consumer study is completed, determining the effectiveness of USDA’s recent labeling guidelines for bioengineered foods. Murkowski: “FDA made a serious misstep by lifting the import ban on GE salmon in response to the untested, inadequate labeling guidelines approved by USDA earlier this year. It is absolutely essential that consumers be fully informed about what they are buying and feeding their families.”last_img read more

Takubar to represent NGI at national club challenge

first_imgRUGBY LEAGUE: BY MICHAEL WARTOVO Takubar Brothers representing the ENB Rugby Football League (ENBRFL) are now the champions of the NGI Confederate club championship after faring undefeated through the two-day trials in Kokopo, recently. PNGRFL NGI development officer Solomon Darius said the team went through the series of competition undefeated and will represent the NGI region at the PNGRFL National Club Championship in Lae from November 28-30. Darius said the PNGRFL has once again come on board to support the revived club championship after almost 40 years since the inception of the then Cambridge Cup in the early 1980s. He said Takubar Brothers will be travelling next week to Lae. The champion clubs from the other three PNGRFL National Confederates, Southern, Northern and the Highlands are also expected to attend the championships. The two-day trial attracted teams from New Ireland, the Autonomous Region of Bougainville and West New Britain. Darius said some of the affiliates in the NGI region did not take part in the first elimination round of the games because of their failure to meet deadlines, and therefore, they have denied their clubs and players the opportunity to participate at the national club meet. The Takubar Brothers possible line-up this weekend: Lipirin Sakias, Nicky Casey, Jimmy Taks, Chris Jerry, Kevin Aigilo, Jason Mission, Michael Ragi, Nick Kalopa, Nathan Tente, Wesley Totori, Nelson Auffi, Jermin Alex, Himson Lavu, Jeremiah Dick, Samson Lawrence, Clement Kilinit, Kolen Stevens, Stoney Gori, Clinton Sama, Wrab John, Mathias Unagi, Auim Behim, Samson Tobe, Standford Gori, John Ragi Jr. Daniel Patrick is the coach and Vagi Wong is the team manager.last_img read more

Cricket News India vs Bangladesh, Under-19 World Cup Final Preview Prediction – Rain Could Spoil Final

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: One team is eyeing a record fifth title in the Under-19 World Cup. The other is looking to script history by upsetting one of the cricketing giants in the world and putting themselves on the map. The contrasting story of India and Bangladesh in their journey to the final will be stark evident when both teams come out on Sunday at Senwes Park in Potchefstroom. The Indian cricket team has been dominant in this tournament, beating New Zealand, Australia and Pakistan in their path to the final. Bangladesh, on the other hand, secured big wins against South Africa and New Zealand to script the first all-Asian final in the Under-19 World Cup since 2006.Be it Yashasvi Jaiswal or Mahmudul Hasan, both teams have future stars who could make it big for their national sides in the near future. India’s bowling, though, is far more stronger than Bangladesh, who have relied on the likes of Rakibul Hasan for consistent breakthroughs. Kartik Tyagi, Sushant Mishra, Ravi Bishnoi, Atharva Ankolekar and Akash Singh have been playing really well and have contributed at vital times for the team. India’s bowling makes them far more potent than the Bangladesh attack and it is this factor which will work for them in the final.However, there is a factor beyond them which could change the outcome of the final. The weather in Potchefstroom has been dodgy and there is a 50 percent chances of rain on the final. With no reserve day, the prospects of sharing the trophy are looking more likely. Both teams will be hoping that the rain stays away just as much as they can get a full match in.Weather ReportThe weather, unfortunately, in Potchefstroom is not too promising. The chances of rain at Senwes Park is fifty percent. On Saturday, showers are predicted throughout the day while on Sunday, the rain could play the spoilsport. For the first time, there is a distinct possibility that rain might force both teams to share the trophy.Pitch ReportThe wicket in Senwes Park, Potchefstroom has seen pacers getting assistance early on before the spinners come into play. A total in excess of 250 has been match-winning. With both teams having good pacers and quality spinners as well as talented batsmen, the pitch could dish out a decent score in the final.Probable XIThe Indian and Bangladesh teams have performed well in the competition and that is mainly due to a settled composition of batsmen and bowlers. Both teams might not make changes for the final.India will be aiming to win the Under-19 World Cup title for a record fifth time. (Image credit: Getty Images)India Predicted XI: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Divyansh Saxena, Tilak Varma, Priyam Garg(c), Dhruv Jurel(w), Siddhesh Veer, Atharva Ankolekar, Ravi Bishnoi, Sushant Mishra, Kartik Tyagi, Akash SinghBangladesh Predicted XI: Parvez Hossain Emon, Tanzid Hasan, Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Towhid Hridoy, Shahadat Hossain, Shamim Hossain, Akbar Ali(w/c), Rakibul Hasan, Shoriful Islam, Tanzim Hasan Sakib, Hasan MuradToss predictionSenwes Park has seen teams batting second have a distinct advantage and it might be the same in the final. The team that wins the toss might want to bowl first and know what the target is. However, in the final, scoreboard pressure does play a big role and the team that bats first will have to put up a huge score.Past RecordThis will be the fifth encounter between India and Bangladesh in the Under-19 World Cup. They have played four games in this tournament with India winning three and Bangladesh one. India won the first game in Moratuwa by 122 runs. However, Bangladesh won their next encounter in Auckland in the 2002 edition by two wickets. India won the next two games and heading into the final, they have an edge over Bangladesh having won the tri-series final in Hove and the Under-19 Asia Cup in Colombo.Also Read | India vs Bangladesh Under-19 World Cup Final: Live Streaming, Preview, Prediction, Weather And Playing 11PredictionIndia have been strong in all facets of the game in this edition of the tournament. With the side having finals experience in big tournaments, psychologically, they have the edge over Bangladesh in the final. Priyam Garg’s side are favorites to win the trophy for a record fifth time.last_img read more

ATHLETICS: Ethiopian Teenager Breaks 22-Year-Old 1,500m Indoor World Record

first_imgEthiopia’s Samuel Tefera upstaged compatriot Yomif Kejelcha to break the long-standing world indoor 1500m record at the IAAF World Indoor Tour meeting in Birmingham, UK on Saturday, NAN reports.Kejelcha, who last week came within 0.01 of the world indoor mile record, had announced his intentions to break the 1500m mark ahead of his race in Birmingham.According to a report by the IAAF website, the pacemakers hit their required target times, taking Kejelcha through 800m in 1:52.70 and 2:49.28 at 1200m.But Tefera, the world indoor champion at the distance, was tucked right behind Kejelcha and looked ominously comfortable with the pace.The clock ticked through 3:03 as the bell sounded for the final lap and Tefera made his move, kicking past Kejelcha to take the lead.Tefera charged towards the line and stopped the clock at 3:31.04, taking 0.14 off the previous record set by Hicham El Guerrouj in 1997.This will now await the usual ratification procedures by the IAAF.Kejelcha finished second in an outright personal best of 3:31.58.

Whenever they are ready they know where to find us.“I’m not a running champion, I’m someone who will fight the best in the world.“Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury are those guys.  I’d love the opportunity to beat Wilder or Fury.“You can see I’d beat them.“I’ve displayed different styles of fighting.

Angels expose oddity in MLB replay review rules amid count confusion

first_imgThe on-field argument from Ausmus and review took about three minutes. The call, of course, was not reversed.”That’s a free review,” Ausmus said after the game. “It’s a crew chief review. … I was talking to (bench coach Josh Paul) about some stuff for the upcoming inning, and figured if it’s free and a possibility, why not take a look?”In other words, the Angels figured out that they could force a balls and strikes review on a random count because why not? That oddity, which more than likely is more interesting than relevant to game situations, theoretically provides managers space to throw an opposing pitcher out of his rhythm or provide extra time for one of their own bullpen arms to warm up.Again, it doesn’t matter a great deal, but it’s a strange allowance in the official MLB rules.MORE: What if baseball were football?Ohtani didn’t seem sure of the call either, and he appeared amused at the whole delay, shrugging his shoulders in the direction of A’s catcher Josh Phegley before smirking from the batter’s box. To be fair, it was a rather humorous— Fabian Ardaya (@FabianArdaya) September 4, 2019Ausmus could have done a much better job covering his intentions by suggesting he had any inkling Ohtani had taken ball four. Kudos to him, though, for exposing a minute baseball loophole.After the review, Ohtani struck out swinging on the first pitch he saw. He then missed a perfect opportunity to pretend the miss was just strike two. OAKLAND, Calif. — Angels manager Brad Ausmus acknowledged after Tuesday’s game that he wasn’t paying attention to the at-bat, occupied by game-planning for the next inning. Designated hitter Shohei Ohtani apparently wasn’t too mindful, either.Yet after Ohtani mistakenly took ball three as ball four in the seventh inning against the A’s, so fooled that he removed most of his gear, the Angels were able to pressure umpire Brian O’Nora into a crew chief review.last_img read more

Wallabies come from behind to beat Fiji

first_imgAustralia hooker Tolu Latu scored two tries in five minutes as the Wallabies came from nine points down in the second half to beat Fiji 39-21 and escape a huge upset at the Rugby World Cup on Saturday.Fiji haven’t beaten Australia for 65 years — a run of 17 winless games against the two-time world champions — whose fans dominated the crowd of 36,482 at the indoor Sapporo Dome.But that did not stop a physical team featuring several of Fiji’s Olympic Sevens gold medallists going ahead 21-12 against the 2015 runners-up four minutes after half-time.Australia, rattled by Fiji’s powerful running, eventually made their forward dominance count thanks to unlikely try hero Latu’s double following the match-changing entry of scrum-half Will Genia.Tries from Fiji-born backs Samu Kerevi and Marika Koroibete then sealed Australia’s comeback win.Wallaby coach Michael Cheika said he was “not going to complain at all” about the result against the “dangerous” Fiji.“We know them very well, their players and that’s what we expected. Probably didn’t expect to be as far behind!” he admitted.Australia almost scored from the opening kick-off when Reece Hodge charged down an ensuing clearance kick, only for Fiji to scramble the ball clear.After Australia-born Fiji fly-half Ben Volavola knocked over an early penalty, a box-kick from Wallabies scrum-half Nic White allowed Fiji to counter-attack.Fiji right wing Josua Tuisova bounced off Hodge and burst through Christian Lealiifano’s tackle before releasing flanker Peceli Yato for a try in the right corner.Australia eventually made their setpiece play count in the lead-up to an 18th-minute try for Hooper, who drove over after the Wallabies pushed Fiji off their own scrum.Fiji suffered a setback when Yato went off with concussion in the 26th minute after what appeared to be an illegal no-arms tackle by Hodge.Captain Dominiko Waqaniburotu said they had asked New Zealand referee Ben O’Keeffe to refer the incident to television match official Rowan Kitt but no action was taken despite World Rugby promising a crackdown on head-high challenges.Two Volavola penalties extended Fiji’s lead to 14-7.Australia’s forwards then earned a penalty that led to an attacking line-out and, after the ball was worked across field, Hodge went over for a 36th-minute try in the right corner but Lealiifano could not nail the conversion.Fiji led by two points at half-time and they were nine in front four minutes after the break.After a poor Australia pass sailed over Lealiifano’s shoulder, Fiji centre Waisea Nayacalevu gathered it up and ran in from nearly half-way before flamboyantly diving between the posts.Hodge’s penalty cut Fiji’s lead to 21-15 and it was no surprise when Cheika brought veteran scrum-half Genia off the bench in a bid to regain control.Playing the ball close from a succession of line-outs, Latu eventually went over from a maul for a 57th-minute try to cut the deficit to one point.Hodge missed the conversion but Australia finally went ahead in the 62nd minute through an almost carbon-copy score by Latu.Matt Toomua, Australia’s third goalkicker of the match, missed the conversion.But Kerevi put the result beyond doubt in the 68th minute after the Wallaby pack drew in Fiji’s forwards with Toomua kicking the conversion.Australia completed their win with a setpiece move off a line-out that ended with Koroibete beating his man for a well-worked try.Concussion rules mean Fiji will be without Yato for their next match against Uruguay in Kamaishi on Wednesday, with Australia playing fellow Pool D favourites Wales in Tokyo a week on Sunday.

Costa to start for Chelsea against Sporting, City ready for Roma test

first_imgBy Justin Palmer and Martyn HermanIn-form striker Diego Costa will start for Chelsea, despite a troublesome hamstring, in the Champions League Group G clash against Sporting Lisbon on Tuesday, manager Jose Mourinho said.“There is a risk, but he plays,” Mourinho told a news conference.“We assume the risk. Hopefully everything goes well and hopefully from Tuesday to Sunday he has enough period of time to be back on track and to play against Arsenal.”Costa, with eight goals in six games for the Premier League leaders, was part of a 20-player party that travelled to the Portuguese capital on Monday.Missing from the squad were striker Didier Drogba, who has been left at home after aggravating an ankle problem, and midfielder Ramires.‘Drogba is going to be out for a couple of weeks,’ continued Mourinho, with the subject now turning to the Ivorian striker who has not travelled to Lisbon with the squad.Mourinho said Drogba would be out for a fortnight.“He had a problem in the training session with his ankle, so it was not possible for him to travel and I think it will not be possible for him to recover for Sunday (when Chelsea host Arsenal).”Ramires sustained a muscular injury in the Premier League draw with Manchester City on Sept. 21 and missed the weekend win over Aston Villa.Chelsea were pegged back by Schalke in a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge to open their Champions League campaign and Mourinho predicted a difficult test against a Sporting side unbeaten at home in 16 European games.“I don’t know the meaning of favourite in a football match. A good result is to win. We will try to win but to desire and to achieve are two different things.“Sporting has its weapons. A point could be considered a good result for them,” he said.“Will the team mount its strategy based on the goal of achieving one point? On Friday we saw a team that is not going for a draw. If they stick to themselves and assume their identity then it will be a great match and a great return for Sporting to the Champions League.”England goalkeeper Joe Hart meanwhile will return for Manchester City in their Champions League match at home to AS Roma on Tuesday after being replaced by Willy Caballero for the last two games.Hart sat on the bench for his team’s 4-2 win at Hull City in the Premier League and Argentine Caballero, signed from Malaga this year, produced a solid display.He was also rested for last week’s League Cup thrashing of Sheffield Wednesday and while he is clearly still manager Manuel Pellegrini’s first choice for the big games, he is not a fan of watching from the sidelines.“Of course, I want to play every game, that is my nature, my professionalism,” Hart told a news conference ahead of the vital game against the Italians in Group E.“I am not the manager, just a player. I live by the decisions of the manager.“It is hard for me to see (the positives of being rested). I am sure when I retire from football I will see them but right now I am not going to see them.”Hart was in superb form in the 1-0 defeat against Bayern Munich in City’s opening game, keeping the Bavarians out almost single-handedly until a deflected winner in the dying seconds.With Roma also winning their first match, he knows that anything short of victory will leave City with an uphill battle to reach the last 16.“It is obviously a big game after the disappointing start we had in Munich,” he said. “Roma have been doing very well. We have focused a lot more on them since they were drawn in our group. They got a great result in their opening game.”While the emphasis in Munich was very much on defence, Pellegrini believes his side have now clicked as an attacking force after a tricky start to the season.They scored seven against Wednesday and four at the weekend and the Chilean thinks they are hitting their stride.“I think we are playing well,” he said. “Maybe at the beginning of the season we didn’t score so many goals here at home, especially against Chelsea and Stoke. We scored only one goal in those two games.“But after that the team returned to its normal performance and at this moment I have a lot of trust in the team because I think we are in a good moment.”last_img read more
