Director of Music Morristown, NJ Submit a Press Release Curate Diocese of Nebraska Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York [Black Theology Project] While the Charlottesville, Virginia, “Unite the Right Rally” is certainly alarming, it should come as no real surprise. For as disgusting as many Americans find the beliefs of these “alt-right” crusaders, their white supremacist beliefs reflect an ugly truth about this country. The truth is this country, even as it proclaims freedom and justice for all, was founded on an “Anglo-Saxon myth” of white racial superiority.This is a truth that Donald Trump’s politics has tapped into and brought into clear relief. Simply put, during his campaign and now presidency, Mr. Trump guilefully exploited America’s defining Anglo-Saxon myth while dangerously revitalizing the culture of whiteness that serves to protect it.Many Americans, horrified by the hate and violence on display in Charlottesville, exclaim, “This is not America!” But the truth we need to know to actually root out white supremacy is that this is integral to America, and has been, from the very beginning.Read the full essay here.The Rev.

Horizon, an Australian oil and gas company, has announced the launch of drilling operations at two infill wells located in Weizhou 6-12 fields of block 22/12, Beibu Gulf in China.The two well infill drilling operations target undeveloped reserves in WZ6-12 area, including the WZ6-12-A11 well into the producing WZ6-12 North field and the WZ6-12 A3S2 well into last year’s WZ6-12 M1 discovery.The company claims that the two wells have a capacity of 0.3MMbbl and 0.2MMbbl respectively.Both the wells are being drilled from the existing WZ6-12 platform with one well side-tracked from an existing wellbore and the other is being drilled from a recently completed rig slot extension.The two wells will tie into existing facilities and could add a combined output of about 1,900 bopd gross to the existing WZ6-12 production facility.According to Horizon, the wells are also expected to provide valuable reservoir data to determine production and reservoir performance in both the WZ6-12 N and WZ6-12 M1 oil pools.The company’s share of capital costs for the infill drilling programme is expected to be $5m, which the company will fund internally from its existing cash reserves and field production revenue.The participants in the block 22/12 include CNOOC as the operator with 51% stake, followed by Horizon with 26.95% stake, Roc Oil with 19.6% and Majuko with 2.45% stakes.In November last year, Horizon announced that the WZ 6‐12 M1 exploration well in Beibu Gulf was drilled to the target depth of 2025mMD.The company said that the well reached its objectives of drilling through the Oligocene‐aged Weizhou T30 to T32 sands, as planned.

Tomato growing can be a challenging hobby

first_imgGrowing tomatoes is a popular hobby for many home gardeners. It has been difficult to grow tomatoes during the past several years in Georgia because of factors like extreme temperatures, dry conditions, tomato spotted wilt virus and blossom-end rot diseases.Tiny thrips carry the virusTSWV is a virus detrimental to tomato plants. Tiny insects called thrips cause it. The insects have cost Georgia farmers millions of dollars through the damage they cause to tomatoes, tobacco and peanuts.The thrips that carry the virus and transmit it to the tomatoes cause the plant’s foliage to turn purple. The leaves also have a bronze cast. The fruit has mosaic or mottled light-green configurations on the outer fruit peeling.There are several varieties of tomatoes available that are resistant to the virus. They include Amelia, Crista, BHN 444 and BHN 640. Check with your local agriculture and garden supplier for the availability of these varieties.Monitor pH to prevent blossom-end rotBlossom-end rot appears as a small water-soaked spot near the blossom end of the tomato. The spot eventually enlarges and becomes dry, sunken and brown or black. Insufficient calcium uptake by the plant causes blossom-end rot.Any condition that reduces the plant’s roots ability to absorb water sets the plant up for blossom-end rot. This can be caused by root-rotting fungus, nematodes, too much water, not enough water, soil compaction or too much fertilization.To prevent blossom-end rot, maintain a soil pH between 6.0 and 6.5 and supply adequate levels of calcium through applications of dolomitic limestone or gypsum. Avoid drought stress and extreme moisture fluctuations by using mulch and irrigating deeply once or twice a week.Avoid over-fertilizing plants with high ammonia-calcium-nitrogen fertilizer. Excessive nitrogen can depress the uptake of calcium. Foliar applications of calcium with products like Blossom End Rot Stop are only short-term fixes.Following these tips will help you grow better, healthier tomatoes this growing season.last_img read more
