Markham put on leave

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Markham’s son Donnie, an assistant with the team, guided the Bruins in the game. Don Markham, his wife Linda Markham, son Donnie and Bloomington athletic director Ron Taylor were all unavailable for comment on Saturday despite repeated attempts to reach them. James Haynes, listed by Bloomington as an assistant coach on a preseason questionnaire, said “I have no comment. I cannot release any information.” The Bloomington source said the player involved in the alleged incident with Markham has had a checkered history, including reportedly being kicked off the team this season by Markham, then being allowed to return. Markham is a California coaching icon, winning 291 games, losing 99 and tying one during his 32-year career. Those totals do not include Friday’s victory in which Markham did not coach. According to the source, who requested anonymity, the altercation allegedly happened during Bloomington’s afternoon walk-through prior to the game against visiting Norte Vista. Bloomington won the Sunkist League game, 40-29. The source said he had been informed of the action by an “administrator.” center_img Bloomington High School football coach Don Markham, who did not coach in the Bruins’ game on Friday night, has been put on administrative leave according to a source close to the program. “For how long I don’t know,” the source said. “It’s over an incident with a player that escalated.” last_img read more


first_imgThe Road Safety Authority Shuttle bus and roll-over car visited Mulroy College for three days.The event was organised to raise awareness of road safety among students.All students had the opportunity to visit the bus, experience a driving simulator, test their reaction time for braking and lots more. Students over 16 years experienced what it would be like in an accident if a car rolled over, they received a talk on the correct way to put on and wear a seat belt in order to minimise injuries in an accident.Younger students received a demonstration with dummies representing people in the car showing the importance of ensuring everybody wears a seat belt when travelling.During the three days Ms Louise Clara, Road Safety Promotion Officer, visited the school where she gave presentations on road safety to all students from first to 6th year. Local Gardaí were also in attendance at the talks.We spoke to two fifth year students, Caoimhe Blaney and Amy Mc Laughlin after coming off the roll-over car. Caoimhe said “it was so scary, to feel that my body had no control. The blood rushed to my head as the car turned but I could do nothing to help. I can only imagine what it would have been like there was speed involved.”Amy said “I loved trying the braking speed, but I was really bad at it. IT takes a lot of concentration when driving. I will not be speeding when I start driving and will be telling my family all about it”.The school committee would like to thank staff of the RSA, Mr Brian O Donnell, Road Safety Officer with Donegal County Council and the local Gardaí for their help in securing the visit. SCHOOL ON RIGHT ROAD AS SAFETY BUS VISITS MULROY COLLEGE was last modified: March 11th, 2015 by StephenShare 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) Tags:donegalMulroy Collegeroad safety buslast_img read more

Ohio’s farmers looking for answers on 2019 Market Facilitation Program

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently announced another round of Market Facilitation Program (MFP) payments for 2019 to assist farmers harmed by retaliatory tariffs imposed by China. The program will be administered by the Farm Service Agency (FSA) and provide up to $14.5 billion in direct payments to farmers who grow commodities affected by the trade war, including soybeans.While some information about the program has been announced, many details remain unknown.The Ohio Soybean Association recommends Ohio farmers utilize USDA’s available resources to stay up-to-date as the program develops and more details are announced. Additional information, documents, and a complete list of included commodities can be found at What we knowPayments will be based on a single county rate multiplied by a farm’s total plantings to specific crops in aggregate in 2019. County payment rates will be based on USDA’s assessment of the impact of tariffs on individual counties. Per acre payments are not dependent on which of the included crops are planted in 2019, so as not to distort planting decisions. Total payment-eligible plantings cannot exceed total 2018 plantings. Different than the 2018 MFP, payments for 2019 will be made in three tranches, with the second and third tranches evaluated as market conditions and trade opportunities dictate. The first tranche will begin in late July or early August as soon as practical after FSA crop reporting is completed by July 15. The second and third tranches could occur in November and early January if USDA decides they are warranted. What we don’t knowHow will USDA calculate county payment rates and what will those rates be? What percentage of the overall payment pool will be distributed in the first payment this summer? If a farmer can’t get acreage planted and files for prevented planting coverage on crop insurance, will that farmer qualify for any payment under the 2019 MFP? USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue has indicated this is being evaluated. Would the same farmer be eligible for disaster aid assistance if the disaster relief package currently being considered by Congress is passed?  In addition to direct payments, USDA will be implementing a $1.4 billion Food Purchase and Distribution Program through the Agricultural Marketing Service to purchase surplus commodities affected by trade retaliation. Also under MFP 2019, $100 million will be issued through the Agricultural Trade Promotion Program to assist in develop new export markets on behalf of producers.last_img read more

This Documentary Goes Behind the Scenes of The Shining

first_imgJack Nicholson’s performance in The Shining is historic. The intensity and barbarism Nicholson brings to the film propels the movie to terrifying heights. As you can see, his screenplay is a direct reflection of the sinister mind of his character — manic and scatterbrained. Quite the setup for the infamous stair scene. Given the two-camera setup, Kubrick was notorious for pushing his actors to the limit, particularly Shelly Duvall during the production of The Shining.Kubrick certainly had a way of directing and communicating with his actors. This masterful style of directing has led to some of the bravest and boldest films in cinematic history.Did The Shining inspire your own work? Let us know in the comments. Stanley Kubrick’s (then) 17-year-old daughter created an intimate and artful behind-the-scenes film for one of the greatest horror films of all time . . . and you can watch it online.All images via Juxtapoz.A true treat for Kubrick (and Jack Nicholson) fans, this thirty-minute documentary lives in the nuances and little dramas on set of The Shining. By taking a peek behind the curtain, the audience gets an intimate view of these big names, poised within the vision of a 17-year-old (with her father’s filmmaking genes). This is not your average “Behind the Scenes” takeaway.The Making of THE SHINING by paget76The documentary moves between playful and deeply insightful moments with Jack Nicholson into vignettes of the drama and tensions between Kubrick and Shelly Duval. It shows the actors prepping for scenes and getting into character just before takes and then cuts into the actual scenes from the film, so you can see right away the results of their methods.Long takes tracking through the stages, playful interactions with the crew and cast, and quick little flashes of rehearsals and interview snippets weave into a Kubrick fan’s dream. And this was thankfully not the last family collaboration for these two. Vivian, Kubrick’s daughter, also went on to later do the entire score of Full Metal Jacket.Enjoy the film, originally aired on the BBC, and have a look at how these actors and filmmakers can influence your own work.Behind the Scenes Photoslast_img read more
