The Titans return just 11 lettermen from last year’s 3-7 team that finished 2-3 and tied for fourth in the Del Rio League. They missed the playoffs. They return only seven starters, three of them on offense, and although Juarez is hesitant to call this a rebuilding year, he admitted to “being more excited about the talent we have than I was last year at this time. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 “We’ve got some very talented young kids,” said Juarez, who begins his ninth year at the helm. “I think 25 to 30 percent of our lineup will be sophomores and 40 to 45 percent will be juniors. We’ll have very few seniors. “I think last year, all things considered, we did a good job. This year, we’ve added more diversity to the offense. I think we’ll be pretty aggressive defensively. We’re not afraid to hit people. The key for us will be how well and how quickly we mature.” Juarez said a short-term goal is to “do what we didn’t do last year: avoid turnovers and cut down our mistakes. We’ll be a little more conservative, probably run a little more. The two key guys are our tailback and fullback.” That would be Justin Giambroni, a 5-foot-5, 145-pound senior who also plays cornerback or safety and senior Jesus Alvarez (5-10, 220), who was the freshman team’s MVP four years ago. He runs very hard and also plays middle linebacker. Diego Sauceda will get the call at quarterback. A 6-foot, 225-pound junior, Sauceda was the MVP for the freshman team, then sat out last season to take care of academics. Asked to sum up this year’s football team, Pioneer High School coach Ramon Juarez simply says, “We should be able to run the ball, and we’re very athletic.” Then he added, “We’re going to be very young in the secondary, but overall we’re athletically 100 percent better than last year, especially in the skilled positions.” “He’s a tough kid,” Juarez said. “He has a strong arm, he can move around and he’s not afraid of contact.” Other offensive players cited by Juarez include Adam Reyna (senior, OG, 5-9, 220), Josh Valle (senior, OL, 5-10, 265), Chris Melendez (senior, OL, 6-0, 225), Robert Perez (junior, C, 6-0, 225) and Nick Pinon (senior, TE, 6-2, 220). Pinon, who also plays on the Titans’ basketball team, is moving over from offensive tackle. Top defensive returners include senior Bradd Laurito (6-1, 185), who moves from outside linebacker to strong safety, a pair of junior third-year varsity tackles in James Rizzo (6-0, 265) and Peter Santos (6-0, 268), Brandon Rodriguez (senior, DE, 5-11, 205) and Matt Uribe (junior, CB, 5-6, 140). Newcomers expected to battle for playing time include quarterback Randy Palacios (6-1, 180) and linebacker/fullback Tony Hernandez (5-10, 190), both up from the freshman team, and junior wide receiver Kelsey Thompson (6-1, 175), up from the junior varsity. — Roger Murray can be reached at (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3046, or by e-mail at [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

A new drift analysis of an actual wing part from a Boeing 777 has confirmed the most probable location of missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH 370 is within the proposed new 25,000 sq. km search area recommended by international experts.The finding has increased confidence in previous modelling and strengthened the belief that the wreckage of the plane, which went missing with 239 people on board in 2014, is somewhere close to the seventh arc defined by an analysis of satellite signals and near latitude 35°S.The analysis by a CSIRO research team headed by David Griffin and funded by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau builds on research using replicas designed to mimic a moveable wing panel called a flaperon.A flaperon known to be from MH370 was recovered from La Reunion Island, off the coast of Africa, in July, 2015.In the latest research, the researchers used a genuine right wing B777 flaperon sourced by the US National Transportation Safety Board. The flaperon was cut down to reflect the damage suffered by the MH370 part and make it as close a facsimile as possible.This was necessary because the wood and steel replica flaperons could not be made to float in precisely the same way as the recovered part. Researchers found the real flaperon was not uniformly thick and had slightly different drift characteristics to the facsimiles, moving faster under high winds and with a bias to the left.The researchers repeated drift testing near Hobart and re-ran their model and analysis of simulated trajectories, coming up with results that were more consistent with the actual arrival time and place of the MH370 flaperon.Researchers also looked at where debris was and was not found to narrow down the potential crash site.The drift analysis puts the crash site between latitudes 40°S and 30.5°S. The arrival of other debris exclusively after December, 2015, and the failure to find floating debris of a 40-day aerial search off Western Australia narrows this down to latitudes south of 32°S.The absence of debris on the Australian coast is consistent with a few impact latitudes and the region near 35°S is the only one lining up with other factors.“This new information does not change our earlier estimate of the most probable location of the aircraft,’’ the researchers found. “It does, however, increase our confidence in that estimate, so we are now even more confident that the aircraft is within the new search area identified and recommended in the MH370 First Principles Review.’’Read also: ATSB rejects staff warning claims.A meeting of international experts in Canberra last year identified the 25,000 sq. km area just outside and to the north of the original 120,000 sq km as the most likely site of the crash and recommended it be searched.However, Transport Ministers from Malaysia, China and Australia suspended the search earlier this year after aircraft was not found in the initial search area, saying it would not be resumed unless there was credible new information which could be used to identify the aircraft’s position.They failed to define what they meant by credible new information and the statement was criticised by experts and family members as meaning the governments would not look for the plane unless it had already been found.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Jon Scheve, Superior Feed Ingredients, LLCThe October USDA Supply and Demand report took into account the adjusted stocks in bins estimate from the late September report. The next day, the President announced a trade deal with China could be coming in the next 5 weeks.Since then, few details have been provided on the trade deal and some are questioning if a deal will actually be signed in the late November Chile meeting. If a deal is signed some are questioning if China will buy more ag products than pre-trade war levels. This combined with the killing frost throughout parts of the Corn Belt created more market uncertainty. Wheat competitionThe over-abundance of U.S. and global wheat has led to the cash price of hard red wheat being the same value as cash corn in the southern plains. This means, if prices rally, some livestock producers may replace corn with less expensive wheat, which could potentially reduce the feed category for corn by 100 to 200 million bushels. Ethanol demand is limitedSeveral ethanol plants have gone idle while others are running at reduced capacity. This suggests production increases are limited and corn’s use in ethanol may have minimal upside potential. Without an energy policy change or increased ethanol exports, the 1% to 2% grind reduction the USDA highlighted will continue or be reduced by potentially another 25 million to 50 million bushels.Also, the EPA announced that the deal between big oil and ethanol groups was not as favorable for ethanol as previously believed several weeks ago. While there are still many unanswered questions, some market participants have suggested this new deal could reduce ethanol demand by more than 10%. Export reductionsWhen comparing the U.S. to competitors, U.S. corn is not competitive globally at higher prices. Currently, export pace is expected to decline lower than ’16, ’17 and ‘18 levels. Current estimates place export pace at the upper levels seen in ’13, ’14, and ’15. Higher price values could threaten to slow export pace as much as 100 to 150 million bushels. Analyzing possible supply v. demand scenariosSome in the trade are suggesting that there will be acre and yield reductions in future reports resulting in a price rally. However, supply and demand are correlated, so if supply changes and prices rally, demand will likely be affected as described above. To illustrate this, in the chart below I’ve included some possible acre and yield reduction outcomes that illustrate how the market and demand could be affected with any variances from USDA estimates.Historical data from the last 6 years is included to the left, plus this year’s USDA estimates in green. The 5 columns on the right include predictions of potentially lower acres and yields (1st 4 rows) and then how demand would likely be affected (3rd set of 4 rows). Light blue numbers suggest minor adjustments to the USDA’s current estimates and darker blue cells are bigger changes.The Stocks to Use Ratio at the bottom of the chart can help indicate price movement potential when comparing year over year. When looking at the past several years, the trend suggests a significant rally will be a challenge without a production issue. A spike in demand from either a positive trade deal or an increase in ethanol production demand would help prices too, but seem less likely.While I only show acre and yield decreases in this chart, it’s still possible yields could increase and/or acres could remain unchanged. Neither would be bullish scenarios.If production values stay within the USDA forecasted range, and demand remains the same, it’s likely the market will stay within a tight trading range. Last year futures ranged between $3.65 and $3.80 for nearly 6 months. Maybe this year the range will be something between $3.80 and $3.95 for the next several months.Please email [email protected] with any questions or to learn more.

The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has directed action against a private university run by Samajwadi Party MP Azam Khan, following a plea which alleged that it was an encroachment on the floodplain of river Kosi. A Bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel observed that concerned statutory authorities should take appropriate action as river Kosi is a tributary of the Ganga. “A report dated August 13, 2019 has been filed by the U.P. Pollution Control Board to the effect that land has been illegally grabbed by the trust and action has been taken, against which appeal is pending before the Divisional Commissioner, Moradabad. FIR has also been registered and process for cancellation of lease has also been taken,” the Bench noted. The green panel further added, “in view of the report, we are of the view that action may also need to be taken for encroachment of the floodplain in accordance with law in view of the fact that Kosi River is contributory of river Ganga. The concerned statutory authorities may proceed in accordance with law accordingly.”The directions came when the Tribunal was hearing a plea moved by petitioner Shailesh Singh who sought action against illegal construction on the floodplain by the Mohammad Ali Jauhar University. The plea said the construction was obstructing the free passage of the river, resulting in scarcity of water and devastation of the environment.The FIR reveals that Mr. Khan, who represents Rampur in Lok Sabha, and his close aide allegedly ‘grabbed land’ from 26 farmers for the construction of the Mohammed Ali Jauhar University, the plea added. Joint committeeEarlier, the NGT had directed a joint committee, comprising the U.P. State Pollution Control Board and the Rampur district magistrate, to look into the matter and furnish a report.The Samajwadi Party has alleged that the allegations were false and Mr. Khan was being targeted due to political vendetta.Last week, the Allahabad High Court had dismissed a writ petition challenging the demolition order against Rampur Public School of Azam Khan issued by the Rampur Development Authority for alleged illegal construction.The court had said the petitioner had the remedy of appeal against the notice before the commissioner concerned.

World chess Champion Viswanathan Anand is likely to lose his number one status by next month but the Indian is hardly bothered as he feels ranking is a motivational target rather than an end in itself.Anand finished joint second in the London Chess Classic last week and is likely to be toppled by winner Magnus Carlsen, in the latest ranking to be released next month.However, the major reason for Anand’s slip would be Pearl Spring Chess Tournament in Nanjing where he finished second behind Carlsen.”It is not because of London that I am no more the world number one, it is because of Nanjing. Nanjing gets carried over, it is a bit confusing. I overtook him in Bilbao and he overtook me in Nanjing and the status quo is maintained,” Anand said after launching NIIT Mind Champions Academy at the Ryan International School in Greater Noida.”Obviously, I would want to be the world number one but I think the main thing is to see the number one ranking as a motivational target rather than an end.”As long as I am aiming to be number one and I am nearby, I am happy. I’m gaining rating points and that is positive. In fact, I’m currently at my career-high ELO rating. I have never been a 2808 or 2809. My earlier best was 2803, so I feel that the direction is up,” he added.Anand said it is a three-way race for the top spot between Carlsen, Levon Aronian and himself and though he wants to regain his ranking, he is not too worried about it.advertisement”That (ranking) is a function of the margin. Right now, the margin between me and Carlsen is very narrow and one should not forget that Levon Aronian is also there. He is not that far either. We can say it is a three-way race.”There is a bigger margin between him and Vladimir Kramnik. So including him, you can say it is a four-way race.I don’t think one should worry about rankings. If I play well I will be there again,” said the iconic GM, who will leave for Ahmedabad tonight to be a part of the Swarnim Chess Mahotsav, which is set to create a new world record with 20,000 players playing simultaneously at the Gujarat University Grounds.The 41-year-old Indian said he needs to sort out some areas of concern before the next season which starts with the Tata Steel Open in Wijk aan Zee in January.”I think there are some problem areas. Magnus has been able to win a lot more games than me, he is able to win four games in a tournament and I am a still a bit low in that. In Nanjing I won three, which is probably better.”But I am happy that I was undefeated and I was able to beat him in my individual encounter but I think it is inevitable there are areas which I have it keep in mind before I start at the TATA Open next month,” he said.-With PTI inputs
As the nation celebrates its 68th Independence Day, we take a look atthe beauties who’ve inspired us over the decades with their indeliblestyle, grace and glamour.1950sBefore fashion shows dictated trends, Bollywood divas reigned strong on the style circuit. The Golden Age in the 1950s saw classic beauties like Vyjayanthimala, Nutan, Waheeda Rehman and Mala Sinha making a splash on the screen in simple saris, printed blouses, circle skirts and capri pants. With Bhanu Athaiya, who first styled the looks for Guru Dutt’s flick C.I.D., styling celebs as a profession began. Here we see actress Madhubala in a rare look, dressed in a mint green swing dress, with a flower brooch, big pearl stud earrings, slightly winged eyeliner and a bright red pout – all comprising the vintage look that’s a hot favourite with girls across the world today.1960sStylistas in the ’60s shunned a conservative past with bodyhugging kurtas, churidars and higher hemlines. Buffonts and the winged eyeliner became de rigeur, and the eponymous Sadhana-cut turned out to be a big hit. While Sharmila Tagore was the first star to sport a bikini on a magazine cover in 1966, Mumtaz’s triple-decked sari and sleeveless blouse added a sexy take to the nine-yarder. Meanwhile, Madhubala’s costumes in Mughal-e-Azam made such an impact, that designers draw inspiration from them till date.1970sThe Flower Power of the ’70s offered new freedom to fashionable babes – bell-bottoms, oversized shades, mini skirts, hair scarves, side flicks, and elaborate hairdos became the must-haves of the decade. Stunners Zeenat Aman and Parveen Babi scorched the screen in their sexy looks, with plunging necklines, long skirts, beaded necklaces, and floppy hats that epitomised the hippie culture. While Dimple Kapadia popularised the frontknotted top and short skirt with her look in the flick Bobby, Meena Kumari breathed fresh life into the anarkali suit with the movie Pakeezah.1980sThe ’80s witnessed three reigning queens who made an equal impact with their style quotient. While Sridevi glamourised the chiffon sari with her raindrenched blue drape in Mr India, Rekha celebrated the disco age with her unique mohawk hairstyle, jackets with padded shoulders and lame drapes that’ve made a comeback this year on the ramps. Moving into the next decade, Dhak Dhak girl Madhuri Dixit seized the day with her big hair dos, pretty suits and short cholis.1990sWho can forget Urmila Matondkar’s sizzling act in Rangeela, that heralded a new era of trends for hip teenagers in the ’90s. Her short skater dresses teamed with ankle boots, off shoulder tops, denim separates and deep coloured lipstick left a fashionable mark. Meanwhile, Kajol ruled the silver screen with a plethora of looks – from her sporty style of a short bob, fitted T-shirts, cycling shorts, jeans, hoodies and baseball caps, also seen on Karisma Kapoor, to the young bride in heavy wedding attire.The 1990s also marked international fame for Indian beauties as Sushmita Sen became Miss Universe and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was crowned Miss World in 1994. A Cannes outing was on the horizon, and Aishwarya first stepped on the French Riviera’s red carpet back in 2002. Ever since, desi celebs have been wowing the world with their gowns, dresses and the evergreen sari, with Sonam Kapoor being the latest addition to the hot list.2000 onwadsThe new millennium opened doors to fashion designers who began styling and creating special looks for B’wood stars on the big screen. Kareena Kapoor Khan’s patiala salwar with a T-shirt caught the attention of college girls for its trendy simplicity, while Vidya Balan paved the way for women to throw their weight around in style by embracing one’s curves.advertisementAs for swimwear, while it’s all the spice needed for sex-symbols on-screen, real girls have been traditionally reserved with flaunting their curves. In 2006, Priyanka Chopra wowed in a gold monokini in Dostana, and soon the style made its way into many a wardrobe.
Friendlies Share on Facebook It has all been a little disjointed and unstable for him, and so it says much about his talent and temperament that he has still shone, including during United’s recent win against Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford when Rashford performed with such menace that a notable section of the home supporters booed José Mourinho’s decision to withdraw him on 70 minutes.Rashford lined up alongside Romelu Lukaku that afternoon and it bodes well for the player’s prospects at international level that he appears comfortable in a two-man frontline. Southgate deployed Jamie Vardy and Tammy Abraham as a forward pair against Germany and given England suddenly appear to have an encouraging number of strikers to select from, with Harry Kane, Daniel Sturridge and Rashford among those also in contention, it could be a formation the head coach perseveres with as he looks to reconfigure and refresh his team ahead of next summer’s World Cup.“It’s a bit different but like anything new it takes a bit of getting used to,” says Rashford. “The more we do it the better we’ll become at it, so it’s just about familiarising ourselves with positions and responsibilities. Playing in a two is easier. It’s just about understanding each other’s games and building those relationships, which you can do off the pitch as well.”Rashford’s next chance to stake his claim as an England regular comes against the nation that sits second in Fifa’s world rankings and has won the World Cup on a record five occasions. Ronaldo scored eight times as Brazil secured the most recent of those triumphs in 2002 and no doubt one of world football’s latest exciting young goalscorers will be hoping Ó Fenómeno is watching on and admiring his talents once again. England Share via Email Marcus Rashford Share on Twitter Brazil England and Germany to wear poppies on armbands for Wembley friendly Reuse this content The story has been told countless times: On 23 April 2003, Roman Abramovich was in attendance at Old Trafford to witness Manchester United beat Real Madrid 4-3 in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie. It was an encounter full of drama and wonderful attacking play that not only contributed to the Spanish side progressing 6-5 on aggregate but Abramovich falling in love with football. The Russian, captivated and with billions burning in his back pocket, paid £140m for Chelsea three months later and changed the game in this country.What is less known is that there was someone else watching on at Old Trafford that spring evening who would go on to have an impact on English football, less significantly but in its own way also an absorbing tale. He was five at the time, a United supporter who while disappointed by his team’s defeat was left elated and fascinated by what he had just seen, in particular by the contribution of Ronaldo (the original one), who scored a hat-trick and played with such verve and ruthlessness that he received a standing ovation from the majority of the crowd upon being substituted on 67 minutes. The five‑year-old was on his feet, too. His name? Marcus Rashford.“My first ever game that I saw live, he [Ronaldo] was playing in it,” says the striker. “I always remember it; it was in 2003 and he scored a hat-trick. I was only young, but he was my brother’s favourite player, so I’ve grown up watching so much of him.”That will come as little surprise to anyone who has observed Rashford develop since he gripped the national consciousness by scoring twice on his United debut in a 5-1 victory against FC Midtjylland in the Europa League some 21 months ago. His rise to ascendancy has been rapid ever since, with his attacking style built around clever movement and quick, confident, adventurous running.Rashford has clearly been inspired by Ronaldo and it therefore understandably means a lot to the 20-year-old ahead of England’s friendly with Brazil at Wembley on Tuesday night, when he is expected to start for Gareth Southgate’s side, that the Seleção’s legendary No9 also sees a lot of himself in Rashford, saying as much last year before describing the forward as “courageous”, “fast” and “very good with the ball”.Rashford says: “He was a top player who won a lot of things, so when he’s saying good things about you it really stands out. When you’re young you watch clips of the best players in the world and try to emulate them. With Ronaldo, I liked how he always played free. No matter where he was playing, he went out there and expressed himself. When you do that, that’s when you play your best football.”It is debatable whether or not Rashford is playing his best football right now. The striker has scored eight times in 23 appearances for club and country this season and not at all in his last five. However, there have been mitigating circumstances. Since the previous international break last month, Rashford has started only four of United’s seven games and on one of those occasions was deployed in an unfamiliar wide-left role, while on the other three he was tasked with what is nowadays the unusual responsibility of operating in a two-man attack. It should also be noted that in his one outing for England since the national team’s 1-0 victory against Lithuania on 8 October – the goalless draw with Germany last Friday – Rashford only featured for half an hour, having come on as a second-half substitute.
