PRIDE OF MICHIGAN—United States’ Claressa Shields, leaves the arena after winning her fight against Russia’s Nadezda Torlopova, during the women’s middleweight 75-kg boxing gold medal match at the 2012 Summer Olympics, Aug. 9, in London. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky) Claressa Shields walked into the gym around the corner from her house in Flint. Mich., six short years ago, trying to cope with more heartache than an 11-year-old should. As she stood in the corridor of an arena half-a-world away, beads of sweat glistened between her braids, her smile every bit as bright as the gold medal dangling from her neck. The words poured out in torrents.“I haven’t been home a lot. I know I must have a lot of publicity. I might go in history books,” she began. “People are going to look at me as an inspiration. … I’ll be able to help my family out. And then I got a gold medal I can wear every day.”Every day?“Probably the first year,” she replied, pinching it between her fingers to be certain it was still there. “You know, there might be some days where I don’t want it to disappear from me. I worked too hard. I really worked too hard for this medal.”Shields paused, trying to catch her breath.“I can’t even explain the pain that I had went through, all the people that I had to deal with and just life — period. There were people who were telling me I couldn’t do this. And whenever somebody doubted me, it always makes me push harder. So thank you … all the haters,” she said defiantly. “They kind of helped me.”A few hundred yards away, out in the concourse of the ExCel arena, Shields’ trainer, Jason Crutchfield, wore a pressed white shirt and a visor that read “Flint.” He scanned the crowd for signs of his star pupil. Berston’s gym back in Flint isn’t exactly a hotbed of the sport, which is just the beginning of the explanation of why Crutchfield wasn’t accorded a credential giving him access to the fighters’ tunnel and the rest of the backstage.But he and assistant Ed Kendall weren’t complaining. They wouldn’t have had the money to make the trip at all if folks back home hadn’t passed the hat at fundraisers and churches throughout the neighborhood. But hard times were the last thing on Crutchfield’s mind.He was still replaying how Shields dismantled her bigger, much slower opponent, Russian middleweight Nadezda Torlopova, with a highlight reel’s worth of moves copied from her boxing idols. At one juncture, Shields hid everything but her bad intentions, covering her face with her gloves in a classic “peek-a-boo” defense, then dropped both hands to her waist and dared the Russian to come after her.At another, she shuffled like Muhammad Ali—who was known as Cassius Clay when he won his gold at the 1960 Rome Olympics—though Shields’ favorite fighter growing up was the equally elegant Sugar Ray Robinson. Yet it was her grit more than her grace that first registered with Crutchfield. He knew the family history, and how much Shields wanted to be like her father, Clarence, whose ambitions of becoming a prize fighter were derailed more than once by jail time.“She turned that into fuel. … Her determination was just out of this world to do something. To … do … something,” he said slowly.“And she caught on real quick. Being an 11 year-old girl, she was catching on quicker than the boys. That’s what really astounded me,” Crutchfield added. “I was like, ‘O-o-o-o-o-h-h-h-h.’”Her fights became events back in Flint. As many as 70 people, including Clarence Shields and other family members, gathered in a local restaurant to watch the Olympic bout. Back in the athletes village, her teammates tuning in felt almost as invested. London marked the first time the American men competed at an Olympics without winning a single medal; in addition to Shields’ gold, teammate Marlen Esparza won bronze in the flyweight division.She said her teammates made it feel more like an honor to compete than a burden.“Whenever I got back from a fight, they were just wishing me the best. … ‘Girl, you cut up!’ … I don’t think anybody would feel bad about me representing them. I think I did a pretty good job,” she said.Shields called her father before every fight, yet she was in no hurry to do it Thursday night, after the biggest fight of her life.“I called him early today. He watched. He knows. He’s probably crying,” she said.Shields is committed to a “Today” show appearance Friday morning, and who knows what after that. Women’s boxing made its Olympic debut, and her live-wire personality has “star” written all over it. She and Crutchfield will sit down at some point and decide whether Shields will defend her title at the 2016 Rio Games or go pro.“I haven’t been able to think past August 9th, today. So me having passed that day is kind of like, ‘I don’t know what’s going to happen. I’m going to go wherever the wind blows me,” she said with a giggle, looking at that moment exactly like what she was — a high school junior watching a world of possibilities unfolding in the distance.“This was something I wanted for a long time, even when boxing wasn’t going all right, even when my life wasn’t going all right. All I wanted was a gold medal, and I kept working towards it, even when people were saying I couldn’t do it, I’m too young, or there were girls who were going to beat me because of better experience, more experience,” Shields said, mustering one more satisfied smile, “and I proved them all wrong.”Yes, you did.(Jim Litke is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press, Write to him at jlitke(at)ap.org and follow him at Twitter.com/JimLitke.) by Jim LitkeLONDON (AP)—She has a boxer’s story: a troubled childhood, a brother in prison, a father who took up the sport to stay out of trouble yet couldn’t watch her fight at the Olympics because of a criminal record of his own.
Facebook21Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Leslie DemichIt began as the tenderest flutter of an idea: fold 1,000 origami cranes as a wish for all people to find peace and happiness. Five years later, Lacey-based massage therapist Todd McLendon has completed the task.Arranged in long, colorful strands of 100 cranes each, the collection now graces the second floor lobby of the Marston Center in Lacey. Each strand measures ten feet in length; all ten strands are suspended from the lobby skylight.The seed for the idea embedded itself even further back in time. While working as a teaching assistant in Chelan in 1996, McLendon introduced his first and second graders to the story of Sadako Sasaki, a Japanese girl who was two years old when the United States dropped the atomic bomb on her home town of Hiroshima. She survived, but the radiation exposure caused her body to develop leukemia 10 years later.Todd McLendon spent five years folding 1,000 cranes into 10 strands. Photo credit: Frank Hesketh.Moved by an ancient Japan legend that says, if you fold 1,000 paper cranes, the gods will fulfill your wish, Sadako set about the task of folding her cranes in hopes of surviving her illness. Sadly, she did not survive, but her memory lives on. A statue of Sadako stands in Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, honoring all the children who died as a result of the bombing. At the foot of the statue is a plaque that reads, “This is our cry. This is our prayer. Peace in the world.”It wasn’t until 2012 that the idea of folding 1,000 cranes fully hatched for McLendon. “I had just finished grad school, and I didn’t feel settled. I was not at peace, and I wanted happiness. I knew that having either was only possible if I also wished for peace and happiness for my entire community. When everyone has peace and happiness, everyone does better.” That’s when he remembered the Thousand Paper Crane legend as a means of asking that his wish come true.Each crane takes a while to fold, so McLendon had to carve out time to work on the project. He folded five or 10 cranes between client appointments; he folded in the evenings when he had some free time; he folded while visiting family back in South Dakota. Still, it took five years to finish all 10 strands.“As I folded, I settled into a meditation focused on being a creator creating the created for the benefit of the Creator,” McLendon explains.The strands of folded cranes are on display at the Marsten Center in Lacey through Easter. Photo credit: Frank Hesketh.McLendon dedicated his project to two people who are near and dear to his heart. The first person is his mentor and friend, Randy Marston. “Randy has been such an inspiration and support to me through the years. I treasure his friendship.” For this reason, the piece hangs in the second floor lobby of the Marston Center, where it will remain through Easter.The second person McLendon dedicated his project to is his mother, a nurse in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. “My mom developed lung cancer in April 2016. I couldn’t be with her, so we talked over the phone a lot. Not knowing what the outcome would be, I learned to find happiness at the bleakest of times.” His mom finished her chemotherapy in July 2016. That following Christmas, Todd was able to go back to South Dakota for a visit. He brought his unfinished project with him, where he continued working on it. “I wanted my mom to see it before anything else happened.” Today, she is healthy and well.The cranes will eventually make their permanent home with his mom. Until then, McLendon hopes people will come by the Marston Center to see the collection. “I hope the cranes will awaken a sense of awe in others and help them find a path to their own growth and reawakening,” he says.Truth be told, McLendon’s project actually includes seven extra cranes, which float above the other 1,000. Two of the seven are white and yellow. They were the first cranes McLendon ever made, and they represent the beginning of creation. Two of them are larger than the others; they represent the “two-ness” of life. The remaining three are green; they are made of the extra sheets that came in his origami kit. “I believe no one should be left out of a community, so I included them.”McLendon has some good advice for others who might like to take on such a project. “Be dedicated to the dream you are working to bring about, and hold that discipline close to you,” he says. The practice of folding done in this way then becomes almost Zen-like. “Before you know it, you’ve folded 20, then 100, then 1,000.”He also suggests not getting too hung up on perfection. “Don’t worry too much about how they’re turning out. Let them reveal themselves as they are. Just let go.” McLendon found early on that each crane had its own unique shape. “Yet they all came together into harmony. I love every single one of them, even the ones that are imperfect.”On a practical note, he suggests folding a few in one color and then switching to another color to stave off monotony. “I folded all 100 green cranes before making that adjustment to my routine, and that was a bit overwhelming.”McLendon says origami is something just about anyone can do. “If you can hold a pencil, you can fold paper cranes.”You can purchase origami kits at most craft stores and online. Each kit contains all the paper you’ll need to make 1,000 cranes, along with instructions on how to fold them. McLendon says the instructions that come with the kits can be a bit confusing, but there are a number of easy-to-follow videos available online. The kit he used had papers cut in three-inch squares, but you can also find kits with papers cut in two-inch squares. “The smaller papers will make much shorter, lighter strands,” McLendon says. “The larger papers make larger cranes that assemble into much longer, heavier strands.”The cranes will be on display in the Marston Center until at least Easter. Visitors are welcome to stop by during normal hours to view them at 677 Woodland Square Loop SE, in the second floor lobby. The Marston Center is home to approximately 45 health and wellness practitioners, including chiropractic care, mental health counselling, Jin Shin Jyutsu, massage therapy, coaching and acupuncture.

The Carrickfinn Beach lifeguard station has been relocated in time for the remainder of the summer holidays, a Donegal County Councillor has confirmed. Concern was raised over the positioning of the lifeguard station previously due to its location on an EU designated site.Cllr Michael Mac Giolla Easbuig told Donegal Daily that the structure had now been placed on an engineered frame of bespoke design, allowing the lifeguards a good view of the beach, sea, and bathers. He said: “I am delighted that the council have decided to act on this and place the lifeguard station in an appropriate position because it makes it safe for everyone involved.“The old hut was damaging the numerous sand dunes and erosion through the fresh cabin tidy and this new station will not affect the numerous sand dunes at all.“But there has been a number of issues with the beach over the last couples of years and I have been very much proactive on these issues and it is certainly encouraging to see the council go-ahead with the project, it was much needed for this community.” Disabled parking space has also been developed at the beach car park, but Cllr Mac Giolla Easbuig said there was plenty more to be done to improve the blue flag beach and other beaches across west Donegal.He continued: “What we need on beaches that other regularly used by the public are water taps so that the public can wash off when they have finished using them.“And the lack of dog waste bins is also a huge problem because everyone deserves to use the facility especially now in the summertime and in the good weather.“It is these simple things that can improve our beaches and I get these requests all of the time as a local councillor and so it was good to see the council moving on these issues.”New lifeguard station placed on Carrickfinn beach welcomed was last modified: July 8th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
Yvonne Johnston, CEO of the International Marketing Council of South Africa (IMC) candidly confessed that what keeps her awake at night is concern about the next World Cup hosts. ”They’ll find it very hard to beat the standard that we are going to set.”Johnston was discussing the positive outcomes she was expecting for South Africa and the continent in the run-up to, and beyond, the 2010 FIFA World Cup at the second 2010 National Communication Partnership Conference at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg yesterday.Johnston said that the 2006 World Cup had positive outcomes for the German economy – investment and tourism, and thus employment were boosted. The same will undoubtedly happen in Africa.Very important is the “global airtime Africa takes up in people’s headspace over a concentrated period of time”. If we have clear, consistent messaging, this will lead to a change in perceptions and mobilise people behind a common cause.And that common cause will create unity.This year’s Communication Partnership Conference, themed “Africa’s time has come”, brought together over 350 marketers, communicators and other interested stakeholders from across Africa to discuss how to create a new and lasting impression of Africa that will encourage foreign investment and a global mind-change about the continent.The Partnership includes communicators from government, business and civil society working together to take advantage of the marketing opportunity presented by the 2010 World Cup for the country and the continent.Johnston stressed the need for an alignment of messaging which will assist in creating a greater marketing impact. In particular, she urged African communicators to use the world spotlight on South Africa and Africa to profile the “majesty, spirit, energy and successes of Africa”.She concluded by saying:” We must contextualise and balance the African story. We must take control of our narrative. We must all entrench one message.”Download Yvonne Johnston’s full presentation…[PDF: 2 MB]ENDSIssued by: Meropa CommunicationsOn behalf of: International Marketing Council of South Africa (IMC)For more information, please contact:Claire Taylor: 011 772 1000/ 072 341 [email protected] Dlamini: 011 772 1000// 082 686 [email protected] Theys: 083 444 4755
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Matt Hutcheson, CCA, Product Manager, Seed Consultants, Inc.As a result of the wet spring weather there was a great deal of variability in corn and soybean fields in 2019. Early rainy weather caused wet soil conditions early in the growing season, flooded areas of fields, and resulted in fields that had to be replanted. Although in many cases the saturated soil conditions stunted crop growth, in some cases compaction is to blame. Field work this spring when soils were too wet or “marginal” created yield-limiting shallow compaction, smearing of the seed furrow, etc.In the 2012-01 issue of the C.O.R.N. Newsletter Randall Reader and Alan Sundermeier state that “Years of OSU Extension research on Hoytville silty clay loam showed that through compaction, 10% to 15% of the potential crop yield was being left in the field.” Horizontal root development and poor root development in general are indications of soil compaction. Sidewall compaction greatly limited root growth in some fields this year. Crop growth problems above ground such as stunting or Sudden Death Syndrome in soybeans can also be clues that compaction exists. In areas of fields where these symptoms existed this year, growers should determineif they have compaction and alleviate it when soil conditions allow for field work this fall or next spring.
