Glenn Robinson III’s offensive rebounding a pleasant surprise for Warriors

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO — When making his free agency decision this summer, Warriors forward Glenn Robinson III wasn’t just looking for playing time. He made that mistake before. Instead, he prioritized a place that could utilize his talents. Disappointed after falling out of the rotation with the Detroit Pistons last season, Robinson asked his agent to reach out to the Warriors, who entertained signing him two years ago. Mutual interest led to a one-year, $1.9 million deal.In the wake of injuries to …last_img

Rosetta and the Stone

first_imgA historic comet rendezvous mission begins today after ten years in space.The Rosetta spacecraft, launched in 2004 by the European Space Agency, after 5 trips around the sun, is poised to orbit its prey: Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.  The craft will orbit the comet’s nucleus, if all goes well, and then will land a probe named Philae on its surface in November.  Space.com tells about the mission with an infographic.  Interested skywatchers can follow the progress on the ESA’s Rosetta page.Update: Success!  Rosetta entered orbit successfully on August 6.  First stunning close-ups of the comet have been posted by New Scientist, BBC News and Space.com.There aren’t too many “space firsts” left in this mature part of the space age.  Although Giotto photographed Comet Halley’s nucleus in 1986, and Deep Impact crashed a probe on a comet in 2005, and Stardust collected comet dust and returned it to Earth in 2006, this will be the first mission to land a probe gently on a comet surface in an attempt to understand comets better.In 2000, the NEAR spacecraft touched down on asteroid Eros in an unscheduled soft landing at the end of its mission, but communication was lost on contact (see NEAR-Shoemaker page).  The only other solar system bodies on which soft landings have succeeded are the Moon, Venus, Mars and Titan.Another historic first to anticipate will be the first flyby of Pluto by the New Horizons spacecraft on July 14 next year.As we reported 1/13/03 before its launch, the Rosetta orbiter contains a disk inscribed with the first three chapters of Genesis 1 in 1,000 languages — a true Rosetta Stone for the ages.  It’s been a decade-long wait; this should be an important and very interesting mission to watch from now through November.  Space firsts are a good occasion to interest children in science.(Visited 17 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Glenn Harsh, June 8

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We’ve been done with planting for probably 10 days. We are in the process of spraying crops and we are getting through the beans right now. Then we will switch to corn and get it sprayed here pretty quickly.The grasses are starting to come back on. Some of the giant rag and other aggressive weeds are getting going again too. It is time to get back out there. We are spraying as much as we can in between winds and these little showers we’ve been getting.We are also putting 28% on with our Y-DROPs. We’ve got another sprayer rigged up with the Y-DROPs so we can do that and spray the herbicide.We’ll go though now and put 15 gallons on when the corn is around knee high. Then we’ll come back at shoulder high corn and put on anywhere from 25 to 60 gallons depending on what we need in that particular area. We put about 35 units of N down with the planter and we have two tons of chicken litter on everything. We can probably count on 75 units but we give ourselves a 25-pound buffer so we count 50 pounds for the chicken litter. The corn looks good and has good color but I don’t want it to have a bad day, so that’s why we are going through it at this time to hold it until it is chest or shoulder high.I am very happy with my emergence here. I know there has been some replanting going on in central Ohio. I have been lucky that the couple spots I needed to replant weren’t any bigger than a pickup bed and it wasn’t worth taking the planter out. I have been fortunate that we have not had to do any replanting. The emergence has been very good but I know there have been one or two fields that have been replanted and some spotting in here and there. One field that was replanted was planted right before a 1.5-inch downpour. It was bad timing. Overall, though, things look very good.We are in good shape with moisture. After a cold start, once we got rolling things went pretty well. Now it is just a matter of getting all the field operations done to keep things moving in the right direction.last_img read more
