Now they hope to advance to the nationals.F1 in Schools is a STEM program involving students from all over the world, built with the idea that learning is fun. The first regional competition in the New York/Tri-State area was held this month, and the 13th National Finals will be held in Austin, Texas from June 8 to 11. Teams will vie to head to the World Finals in Abu Dhabi.Against some high schools students, the Dream Racers – the local quartet of local 11 to 13 year olds – took home first place for Research and Development and also won third place for a car design they collaborated on, advancing the team to the nationals in Texas.Team members included Jordan Chamberlain, a12 year-old attending Weehawken High School who likes to play basketball, football, and baseball. He also participates in a robotics club and his school’s peer leadership program, which he says he does to help the community. He also plays the xylophone four days a week.Jehnoi Walcott, 12, hails from North Bergen and attends the Academy of Our Lady of Grace. A seventh grader, she says she loves to read, is a member of the National Junior Honor Society and her school’s drama club, and is a reporter for her school’s newspaper.Their fellow team members are from Teaneck and attend St. Peter Academy. They are Julian Fontenot, 11 years old, and his sister Kelsey Fontenot, 13.The long history of friendship among the team members began when they met at Sweet Dream day care in Guttenberg.“We are a group of four young men and women who have known each other since we were in diapers,” Jordan said. “We came together to compete in this year’s ‘F1 in Schools’ engineering competition, which is being held for the first time in the New York/Tri-State region this year.We no longer go to the same schools and live far away from each other, but that doesn’t discourage us from trying hard and meeting often to work together in this competition. We are lucky to have the Classic Car Club of Manhattan as our major sponsor.”The team’s goal, he said, is to win nationals in Austin, TX and get to the World Finals in Abu Dhabi.

Hurricane Michael Impact

first_imgTo avoid losing their farms following Hurricane Michael, Georgia farmers need financial relief as soon as possible, according to Jeff Dorfman, a professor and agricultural economist in the University of Georgia Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics.South Georgia growers are still picking up the pieces after the hurricane hit Oct. 10-11, destroying homes and agricultural commodities. The storm’s timing could not have been worse for the producers who were impacted, as cotton, pecans, peanuts and vegetables were ready to be harvested.“The timing of this was not good,” Dorfman said. “Farmers have already spent most of, if not all, their money growing their crop. If you lose a crop at the start of the growing season, at least you didn’t put any of those extra inputs into it.”Dorfman believes growers, who normally would have sold their crops by now and had revenue to pay off production loans, are not going to be able to cover those costs this year.“We have at most three months, maybe as little as one month, to sort that out, but this definitely could put a lot of farmers out of business,” Dorfman said.Hurricane Michael caused more than $2.5 billion in losses to Georgia’s agricultural sector, the state’s leading industry, according to estimates from the UGA Cooperative Extension agents and agricultural economists.“Until we know how much insurance relief we get, how much insurance is going to cover, how much disaster relief payments are going to cover, we won’t know how bad the bite on the broader economy is going to be,” he said.Cotton and pecans are the Georgia crops impacted most by the storm. Pecans suffered $100 million in direct losses to this year’s crop, $260 million in losses due to lost trees and $200 million in direct losses for future income.“It’s going to take pecans 15 years to recover; that’s a pretty hard hit. And Georgia’s got a bunch of businesses that depend on pecans, especially during the holidays. We’ve got fewer pecans to use in other businesses now,” Dorfman said.Georgia’s cotton crop suffered between $550 and $600 million in direct losses. Poultry, the leading agricultural industry in Georgia, suffered $20 million in direct losses to houses and $8 million in losses to birds.“We lost 129 poultry houses and I think some of those will not be rebuilt. Poultry will be smaller for a while,” Dorfman said.Georgia’s vegetables suffered $480 million in direct losses, while timber was dealt $763 million in losses.For a summary of Hurricane Michael’s destructive impact on Georgia agriculture, visit t.uga.edu/4×1.

PCP: Wheaties box or Madden cover greater honor?

first_imgElliot HughesCome on. It’s the “Breakfast of Champions.” Is this really even a question?For decades now, Wheaties cereal has been an iconic platform for athletes to reach iconography themselves. Everyone grew up with Wheaties and knows it well. Wheaties is right there with Thomas the Tank Engine and Winnie the Pooh.Although these days Madden does have more attention focused around the unveiling of its next cover man, it doesn’t come close in prestige to Wheaties.Appearing on the cover of Wheaties puts you in the same club with some – if not most – of America’s biggest sports heroes. To name a few: Lou Gehrig, Michael Jordan, Walter Payton, Jesse Owens, Muhammad Ali, Arthur Ashe and Mary Lou Retton.I have trouble seeing any negative consequences to being on the cover a Wheaties box. You are fitted in an image of greatness, marketability for the athlete shoots up and, oh yeah, Wheaties just happens to be delicious and healthy.Healthy. Not exactly something that can be ascribed to Madden.I’m not saying curses are real … but here are the facts about being on the cover of Madden:Excluding this year’s cover man, Peyton Hillis (because he has yet to play the season that follows his cover appearance), eight of the 12 cover men had overt negative years immediately following taking the cover. Of that eight, five suffered injuries. I’m just sayin.’Wheaties is for champs, Madden is for chumps.Kelly EricksonSure, being immortalized on a Wheaties box would be pretty awesome, but let’s be honest, almost any athlete can find their face on that cardboard – including NASCAR drivers. When it comes to gracing covers, no cover has a higher prestige than the likes of Madden.Disregard the talk of the Madden Curse; it no longer is an issue. Troy Polamalu, Larry Fitzgerald, Drew Brees – who have all been on the cover – haven’t had those career-cramping seasons.Being chosen to be the face of Madden for a season, not only are football players glorified for their work the previous season, but they also become a part of history that no one else can claim for that year.While every athlete may want to claim at one point they made it onto the Wheaties box, it only lasts a few weeks before it’s gone. It can even happen multiple times, such as Ken Griffey Jr. – he appeared every year from 1996-2000 – or the Los Angeles Lakers in 2009 and 2010.Regardless of the fact that Madden may not possess and delicious, nutritious qualities but – speaking to what it does provide to society -without madden the world would not have the quality YouTube video that is “Greg Jennings (Broken leg) scores on the saints.” There would be no putting “the team on my back,” “crossing the plane” or “fuck you gumby!” What would the world do without these gems? No healthy, nummy cereal needed here, just laughs and the ability to pretend one is a football team.When it comes to the Madden cover, there have been no repeats and the exclusivity that comes with the honor makes the opportunity a greater distinction than being on some cereal box.last_img read more

Man City Beats United to Go 11 Points Clear

first_imgPREMIERSHIPManchester City yesterday stretched its lead at the top of the table to 11 points and created English Premier League history with a 14th successive victory this season as the Citizens overcame Manchester United at Old Trafford.Pep Guardiola’s side also ended United’s 40-match unbeaten run at home – which stretched back to the win in September 2016 – to strike a potentially decisive blow against its closest rivals in the title race. City took the deserved lead when man-of-the-match David Silva hooked home from close range after confusion at a corner on 42 minutes, only for United to be handed a lifeline in first-half stoppage time when poor defending from Nicolas Otamendi and Fabian Delph allowed Marcus Rashford to steal in for a composed finish.Otamendi made amends nine minutes after the break when Romelu Lukaku – who had a nightmare game – lashed at a clearance in the area and the City defender pounced on the rebound to score.City, who have dropped only two points in their first 16 games, had opportunities to extend their lead but it was keeper Ederson who made the decisive late intervention with a miraculous double late save from the luckless Lukaku and substitute Juan Mata.Guardiola’s side become the first team to win 14 successive Premier League games in a single season, also levelling Arsenal’s outright top-flight record, set between between February and August 2002.It is a brave call to declare the Premier League title race over in early December – but the statistics and evidence is piling up to suggest the chase is on for second place behind Manchester City.City will effectively have to lose four games while all of their rivals need to keep winning, tough to see with Guardiola’s team having won every league match since Everton took a point at Etihad Stadium in the second game of the season.The trip to Old Trafford, and the renewal of old rivalries between Guardiola and Mourinho, was the most eagerly awaited game of the season between the two teams at the top of the table and was seen as the acid test of City’s apparent infallibility.And those looking for cracks in the Guardiola armour pointed to City having to secure three wins against Huddersfield Town, Southampton and West Ham United with late, late goals in their most recent league games.If City’s confidence had been shaken at all by having to fight for victories, there was no sign here as they played with a composure and positivity that was a level above Mourinho’s Manchester United.They needed Ederson’s late heroics but there can be no doubt they were deserved winners and even showed the street-wisdom of champions to run down the clock in the closing seconds, to the fury and frustration of Old Trafford.The Premier League title race may not be over – but there was no escaping the feeling that a crucial blow has been inflicted on United and the rest of Manchester City’s pursuers.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
