Both sessions will cover admission requirements and will be led by a representative from the UGA admissions office.“Sometimes there’s a lot of mystery surrounding the application process for the University of Georgia, and ShowCAES is a great way to eliminate that mystery for students in south Georgia,” said Katie Murray, UGA-Tifton admissions counselor.Faculty, staff and current students from all CAES departments will be in attendance and will have booths to provide information to students. Current students will be on hand to provide their perspectives.“Students will be able to see all that the college has to offer,” Murray said. “They can interact with faculty, staff and students in a way that makes a lasting connection. They can forge friendships that will benefit them as they move forward in their college career.”Murray also encourages parents to attend because portions of the event, such as the financial aid discussion, will be geared toward them.“We want to help them filter through the hurdles and challenges of the application,” Murray said. “We’re simply making ourselves available to be a resource regarding the college decision-making process.”More than 200 students are expected to attend the event.“We try to get the word out to as many high schools, agricultural programs and UGA Cooperative Extension county offices as possible because we know those are the people who are interacting with potential students on a regular basis,” Murray said. “We’re also promoting it through social media, radio and several different avenues to let south Georgia students know about ShowCAES.”(Julie Jernigan is an intern at UGA-Tifton.)last_img read more

Tax shortfall likely to be worse than expected: Sri Mulyani

first_imgThe government will probably fail to meet its tax collection target, because economic activity slowed more than expected amid the coronavirus pandemic, Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati says.Sri Mulyani said Wednesday that the government expected a greater tax shortfall this year following a change in its economic growth estimate.“We expect a slightly lower tax income than the target set in [Presidential Regulation (Perpres) No. 72/2020] due to the possibility of lower economic growth in 2020,” she said. The shortfall would create a “more challenging environment” to increase tax revenue next year, Sri Mulyani added. The government has revised its GDP target for the full year to growth of only 0.2 percent at best or a contraction of 1.1 percent at worst, down from a previous estimate of 1 percent growth or a 0.4 percent contraction.The government previously expected tax income to reach Rp 1.19 quadrillion this year, around 10 percent lower than stated in the initial 2020 state budget assumption, as the coronavirus pandemic hit economic activity hard.The government collected Rp 601.9 trillion in taxes in the first half, down 14.7 percent year-on-year and around 50 percent of this year’s target.Topics :last_img read more

Pat McAfee

first_imgMost of you know that Pat McAfee is the Indianapolis Colts punter.  In fact, he is considered the best punter in the NFL.  What you probably didn’t know, unless you read an article in the Indianapolis Star, is that he is starting a career as a standup comedian.McAfee has a photographic memory along with his many other talents.  He has started his own real estate business, and he makes many personal appearances for the Colts.  Pat is a 2009 West Virginia graduate and is just 25-years old.  Being a punter, he should have many more years as a pro football player.Besides his heroics as a punter, he is also known for some of his off-field activities.  Just a couple years ago he made the headlines after being arrested on intoxication charges.  You can bet he will use some of these incidents in his standup comedy routine.  He is definitely not a typical pro football player.last_img read more

Lampard: West Ham loss shows why we aren’t contenders

first_imgFrank Lampard has said Wednesday’s loss to West Ham United is emblematic of Chelsea’s season. The Blues were downed 3-2 by the Premier League relegation battlers, a defeat which meant they missed the chance to moved into third. And speaking after the game, Lampard said the result was indicative of why his team were not challenging for the title. “It happens, it is the Premier League and if you make mistakes like we did, we dominated the game in terms of possession, but make mistakes and teams will hurt you,” said Lampard. “I’m not happy with any of the goals. You don’t get given victories for scoring two goals, you have to be better than that.Advertisement Loading…center_img “There were moments they counter-attacked, which we knew they would. There were details in the game which we knew but we lost because we didn’t get them right. “It is why we are fighting for the top four, not one or two, because we don’t get things right as much as the big boys do. I am not happy with tonight but at the same time, we are two points ahead of Manchester United, who have been going great for some time. read also:Crespo confident Lampard right man for Chelsea job “If you don’t get details right in big games, you’re going to drop points. I think at times we have played really well this season. As a group, we need to find more consistency. “We have to defend the moment better. Against West Ham, you have to make recovery runs. That is the bit we got wrong.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 last_img read more

Solskjaer relaxed at Man U in spite Pochettino availability

first_imgRelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U EPL: Red Devils attack Palace Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, says every manager would want his job but he feels no extra pressure after Mauricio Pochettino became available following his sacking by Tottenham Hotspur.Pochettino, who was sacked by Spurs on Tuesday and replaced by former United manager Jose Mourinho, was linked with the Old Trafford job by British media following the Portuguese’s departure last season.Solskjaer, however, was eventually given the job on a permanent basis in March after impressing in an interim role.United have struggled for consistency under Solskjaer this season with the club seventh in the table having collected 16 points from 12 matches but the 46-year-old said he was not worried about his job or Pochettino’s availability.“It does not bother me at all. I have got the best job in the world.“If you are in a job, or if you are out of a job and you are a manager, you want this job. It does not matter whatever happens around. I have got to focus on my job and do it as well as I can.“I speak with (executive vice-chairman) Ed Woodward and the owners all the time about how we are going to move the club forward. That does not change if some other clubs change their managers,”Solskjaer told a news conference ahead of Sunday’s trip to sheffield united.United will be without midfielders Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba for the match against the fifth-placed Blades as the duo continue their recovery from ankle injuries.“Scott will be out for a little while, still. He’s not been training with us… hopefully, we can see him around the time of Tottenham or Manchester City next month.“(Pogba) had another test and a scan at the start of the international break and he’s not healed yet. But he’s stepping up his recovery and he’s out of a cast.“He was in one for six or seven weeks. You do lose loads of muscle so he’s gradally stepping up walking on the treadmill, biking with a free ankle. It will still be a few weeks. We hope to see him in 2019,” Solskjaer said.Tags: Manchester UnitedMauricio PochettinoOle Gunnar Solskjaerlast_img read more

Rooney right for Gunners – Usmanov

first_img Press Association Usmanov also expressed his support for Wenger, who oversaw a strong finish to the 2012/13 campaign as the team finished fourth in the Barclays Premier League to secure a Champions League qualifying play-off place. “My point of view is that Arsene knows best,” the 59-year-old Russian added. “Of course, we as shareholders do point out some drawbacks in managing the club, in steering its way through. “But I believe he is a great coach and he has already proven that last season.” Arsenal shareholder Alisher Usmanov believes Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney would be a “great success” if he joined the north London club.center_img Gunners manager Arsene Wenger has been promised significant funds to build a squad this summer capable of mounting a sustained title challenge, with England forward Rooney among those linked as potential marquee signings, having handed in a transfer request at Old Trafford at the end of last season. And Usmanov, who holds a 29.9 per cent share in Arsenal, reckons the unsettled 27-year-old would be a big hit at the Emirates Stadium. He told American television channel CNBC: “(He is a) great player. If he comes it would be a big success for Arsenal and for Rooney also.” last_img read more

QPR stun West Brom to boost hopes

first_img Press Association Shell-shocked, the Baggies buckled and conceded a third two minutes before half-time through Zamora’s brilliant improvised effort. There seemed little on when he edged ahead of Joleon Lescott on the corner of the box as they chased a long ball, only for the former England man to sensationally lob Myhill with the outside of his foot. QPR, whose only previous away win this season was at Sunderland in February, had it too easy against the wretched Baggies who failed to turn up. Anichebe replaced the ineffective Stephane Sessegnon at the break and Albion went close when Craig Gardner fired straight at Green after 54 minutes. Austin then tested Myhill but Anichebe made it 3-1 on 58 minutes when he glanced in Saido Berahino’s cross from eight yards. Green then saved Ideye’s deflected effort as the Baggies improved with Rangers increasingly relying on the counter attack. And Berahino should have made it 3-2 with 13 minutes left when he nodded a sitter at Green after Anichebe’s knockdown found him free six yards out. But any hopes of a late rally ended on 84 minutes when substitute Mulumbu – who was on for just 12 minutes – was sent off after an aerial challenge with Barton. And the Rangers midfielder grabbed a late fourth in stoppage time when Albion failed to clear under pressure from Austin and Barton rammed in from close range. Eduardo Vargas, Charlie Austin and a fabulous Bobby Zamora lob put Rangers 3-0 up at half time before Joey Barton’s stoppage-time strike. Albion disintegrated in the first half and, while Victor Anichebe pulled a goal back after the break, they could not fight back and had Youssouf Mulumbu sent off late on. QPR grabbed a survival lifeline with a stunning 4-1 win at 10-man West Brom, only their second away victory of the season. QPR are now a point from safety and go to fellow strugglers Villa – who lost 3-1 at Manchester United – on Tuesday after ending a five-game losing run. The Baggies are not safe yet, eight points above third-bottom Rangers, and host rock-bottom Leicester next week. Vargas replaced Junior Hoilett for the visitors after his goal in the 2-1 defeat to Everton last time out and justified his recall after 15 minutes. A quiet opening had seen little action before Austin flicked on for Vargas and the midfielder stepped forward to unleash a low 25-yard effort past Boaz Myhill. Earlier, Brown Ideye – recalled after a knee injury – had nodded over when free at the far post and the Nigerian could have also equalised within four minutes when he directed Chris Baird’s cross wide. But the Baggies never recovered from Vargas’ goal and rarely threatened Rob Green for the rest of the half. Vargas was forced off after half an hour but it failed to slow the visitors who doubled their lead seven minutes later. Baird and Darren Fletcher lost possession to allow QPR to break and win a corner and Matt Phillips’ delivery was flicked on by Nico Kranjcar for Austin to nod in unmarked at the far post. last_img read more
