Since your car cannot make its own resolutions to stay healthy it turns to you, its faithful owner, to make sure that every part on it is running at maximum capacity. So what does your car need every year?Your car needs to get regular oil changes. They are generally every three months or 3000 miles. Mike Kefalas, the owner of J.K. Volvo, said, “It’s very easy for consumer to miss a service or miss an oil change or be 3,000 or 4,000 over. That’s a quick way to damage your engine.” Get your oil changed somewhere that will fill your fluids for free between check-ups. Then make sure to get your fluids checked regularly. You couldn’t function at full capacity if you were dehydrated right?Resolve to regular check your tire pressure and refill tires if needed and repair any tear right after it happens. Schedule a preventative check-up for your vehicle at least once if not twice a year. Just like regular checkups catch human ailments before they are too far gone a car checkup can catch an issue before it becomes unfixable.If you are looking for a local professional for your car care needs you may want to consider the staff at J.K.

first_imgRIVERA: Dear MLB teams: Please keep paying the playersIf the Yankees — and, maybe just as importantly, their increasingly anxious fans — get their way, though, that streak will end this offseason. There are two elite, top-of-the-rotation aces on the market, Gerrit Cole and Stephen Strasburg, and the Yankees seem to be hell-bent on landing one of the two. Ken Rosenthal, writer for The Athletic (and TSN alum!), reported Tuesday that the Yankees are meeting with both players this week. The headline included the word “intensifies” and the first sentence had “starting to accelerate” featured prominently. After a couple of slow offseasons, that’s exciting for a December column. Even the official MLB Twitter account is pumped. The Yankees are reportedly having their Winter Meetings early, per @Ken_Rosenthal. https://t.co/SoKRMK0UMx pic.twitter.com/gYUXyGVcVE— MLB (@MLB) December 3, 2019Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the meeting with Cole is happening Tuesday and the meeting with Strasburg is happening Wednesday.As Sherman pointed out in his column, the fact that the Yankees are traveling to meet with both right-handers shows a level of investment that they haven’t shown with free agents recently; last year, Patrick Corbin — who signed a $140 million deal with the Nationals and helped his new team to the 2019 World Series title — had to travel to Yankee Stadium to meet with the Bronx bosses.  It’s been a decade since the Yankees accomplished what Corbin and his Nationals teammates did in October, and that’s too long for the franchise with the most World Series titles in baseball history. The Yankees, as was trumpeted by Yankees-haters everywhere, didn’t even make the final round in the 2010s, the first decade without an appearance since the 1910s. So, yeah, there’s a sense of urgency. Cole seems to be the primary target, and the Yankees’ connections/fascination with him have been widely reported. They drafted him in the first round of the 2008 MLB Draft out of high school but weren’t able to sign him. They targeted him as a trade get when the Pirates were shopping him after the 2017 season, but didn’t meet Pittsburgh’s price.  So now, maybe on their third opportunity, they’ll land Cole. And if Cole prefers the West Coast — he’s a Southern California guy — maybe the Yankees convince Strasburg to join their World Series quest. Either way, the cost will be high. Cole, who is two years younger than Strasburg, at 29, will receive the largest contract ever for a pitcher (David Price’s $217 million deal tops the list for the moment), and Strasburg’s AAV will be in the same ballpark as Justin Verlander’s record ($33 million a year).After a decade away from the World Series, those are both bidding wars the Yankees need to be involved in, and Yankees fans have to be happy their team is aggressively going after both starters. The Yankees have handed out contracts worth north of $100 million to eight players, with varying returns on those significant expenditures. It’s not only been a while since they’ve signed a nine-figure deal — relatively speaking, of course — but it’s been a while since they were truly invested in a high-dollar bidding war, and the hesitancy is at least understandable. The last such deal happened in 2014. Deals, actually. The Yankees gave Masahiro Tanaka a seven-year, $155 million deal that’s actually worked out pretty well, though not best-case scenario — the right-hander has averaged 27 starts a year, with a 3.75 ERA. A little more than a month before Tanaka, though, the Yankees signed Jacoby Ellsbury to a seven-year, $153 million deal that’s been a disaster. Well, was a disaster. The Yankees parted ways with him recently, eating the more than $26 million remaining on his deal. last_img read more

first_imgThe page goes on to indicate Kamil was athletic. “Kamil was a great athlete at Mahopac High School, playing football and lacrosse, and later touched many more lives at Mount Saint Mary College, where he continued his lacrosse career and studied criminal justice. Kamil has a monumental love of the outdoors. He loves hiking, biking, fishing, and any sort of adventure. His dreams to become a police officer and have a beautiful life are postponed for now.” The text of the appeal closes with hope in mind. “We are asking for any sort of gesture to help him and his family conquer this situation, and participation from you in his long journey. Hopefully we can celebrate one day his regain of what he has lost.”Catherine Butkiewicz, whose family is listed as one of the organizers of the appeal, emailed that Sudol’s family lives in Bedford, N.Y. A GoFundMe campaign began Monday for the benefit of 20-year-old Kamil Sudol, who dove off Little Bridge in Oak Bluffs on August 3 and suffered injuries that have paralyzed him from the chest down. Sudol reportedly dove into the shallow waters beneath the bridge headfirst and, according to a police report, struck his head.  “Kamil was in a horrifying accident on August 3rd, 2020, leaving his body paralyzed from the chest down as a result of jumping into water he didn’t know was shallow while vacationing in Martha’s Vineyard,” the fundraising page states. “Kamil was airlifted to Massachusetts General Hospital, where he is in critical condition with fractures to his vertebrae; facing severe injury to his spinal cord, leaving his 20-year-old body without any sensation and mobility immediately from his chest down, still remaining with some limited sensation in his arms.” The bridge is posted with signs warning against jumping or diving from the bridge. The campaign, which is roughly 24 hours old and was begun by Taylor Moreau, seeks to raise $750,000. By 8 am August 12 it had generated 924 donors and just over $93,000 in funds. center_img “Kamil will be facing many obstacles and treatments on his way to his desire of recovery,” the page states. “In preparation for the immense emotional and financial toll this will take on his family, we are looking to do everything possible to aid Kamil along his journey.”It further states, “If you cannot donate, please pray and please share this in support of Kamil. He is a huge part of our lives, and we are hoping to face this with strength, support, and in faith.”Kamil is described as someone of “great courage” and “amazing character” and as having “selflessness and a wholehearted soul.” last_img read more

first_imgThe Bombers, playing in front of a wall of LVR supporters that filled the home sideline, surrendered the first try of the game when Boucherie pushed the ball down the left flank to open the scoring.Trailing 5-0 at halftime, LVR put together a converted try to take the lead.However, a lead the Bombers could not hold.“Defensive lapses and a key missed tackle cost us the game today,” Joyce lamented.Despite the setback, the season has been a very successful campaign for the Bombers.LVR is 6-2 on the season, with two losses coming against South Kamloops and Mount Boucherie. One of the wins came south of the 49th parallel where LVR hammered North Idaho 95-5.The Bombers travel to Red Deer for a tournament before concluding the season at home May 13 at Lakeside.LVR continues to build for the BC High School Rugby Championships in Abbotsford May 27-30.“We definitely have worked to do but we are strong in our league and then have time to prepare for provincials,” Joyce said. Mount Boucherie Bears of Kelowna scored a late try to edge the L.V. Rogers Bombers 12-7 in High School Rugby action Thursday afternoon at the Lakeside Pitch in Nelson.Trailing 7-5 with five minutes remaining, the Okanagan squad put together a final push that resulted in the winning score.“It’s disappointing for sure,” said Bomber sideline coach Michael Joyce.Joyce said the Bombers had trouble with the finer points of their game, mistakes that allowed the Bears to score early and late in the contest.“We had trouble today with details of the game,” he explained. “Some serious lapses in decision making and nerves, for sure.”last_img read more

first_imgA Sunday Times isiZulu edition will hit the streets on 7 November. (Image: Bongani Nkosi) MEDIA CONTACTS • Sibusiso Nkosi Communications PanSALB +27 12 341 9638 or +27 82 855 4436  RELATED ARTICLES • Africa’s first children’s newspaper • Talk 11 languages on your phone • Learning Zulu made easy • South Africa’s languagesBongani NkosiThe Pan South African Language Board (PanSALB) has applauded Sunday Times’ decision to publish versions in isiZulu to promote wider use of the country’s other official languages.Sunday Times, a national weekly newspaper owned by Avusa Media, will print and sell the isiZulu edition in KwaZulu-Natal province from 7 November 2010. The 32-page broadsheet will be called the Sunday Times Zulu Edition.“PanSALB believes that the idea will encourage other national media houses and other organisations to recognise the role of official languages in the country,” the organisation’s spokesperson Sibusiso Nkosi said in a statement on 3 November.“This announcement deserves praise and our support,” Nkosi added.The Sunday Times Zulu Edition is a critical development that will “help in the preservation and promotion of our indigenous languages”, PanSALB said.Breaking into the marketSunday Times is hoping to penetrate the isiZulu readership market that’s currently dominated by Ilanga, Ilanga langeSonto, Isolezwe and Isolezwe ngeSonto. These newspapers are among the highest sellers in the country, although they are only distributed in KwaZulu-Natal and some parts of Gauteng.Isolezwe ngeSonto, the Sunday publication launched in 2008, recorded a 34% sales hike in the first quarter of 2010, selling about 71 219 copies a week – according to its owners, Independent Newspapers.Sunday Times said the new publication came about after market research, which indicated that there’s high demand for an additional isiZulu newspaper.Sunday Times Zulu Edition will have a strong focus on provincial politics, municipal developments, celebrity news and sport. It will sell for R8 (US$1.17), which is cheaper than the Sunday Times English version. Sunday Times’ KwaZulu-Natal bureau, where staff will be based, has been thoroughly prepared for the new venture. “We have already had several dry runs with a team of sub-editors translating stories and laying them out with Zulu headlines, said Sunday Times editor Ray Hartley in a statement.“We have established an operation dedicated to serving this edition in our KwaZulu-Natal bureau,” he added.The paper will be run by Avusa Media editor-in-chief Mondli Makhanya, also former Sunday Times editor, until a new one starts in January 2011.Preserving indigenous languagesEnglish remains the dominant language in South African print media. Of the 10 other official languages, it’s only isiZulu and Afrikaans that have a presence in mainstream newspapers. The other official languages of the country are siSwati, isiXhosa, Sesotho, Setswana, isiNdebele, Xitsonga, Tshivenda and SePedi.PanSALB, a government organisation, is advocating for newspapers to be published in these languages as well to promote their usage. “We hope that in future, such efforts [like Sunday Times’] will be extended to other languages … ” said Nkosi.IsiZulu is the most widely spoken language in South Africa after English. According to PanSALB, it’s the home language of about 24% of South Africans, while about 50% of the country’s population understands it.Makhanya believes the venture will “play a positive role” in improving South Africans’ access to information.He sees the paper as Avusa’s way of developing the use of isiZulu. “We are extremely proud to be making a contribution to the growth of an indigenous language. This in no small way contributes towards us living up to our claim as ‘The paper for the people’.”last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Thousands of farm ponds dot the Ohio landscape, serving several important uses for farmers and property owners alike. Farm ponds certainly fulfill utilitarian purposes such as for flood and erosion control measures and serving as a water supply for livestock; they can also have great recreational and aesthetic value and contribute to the proliferation of local wildlife, as the story of Jim Reber’s watery haven illustrates.When Jim Reber, a nature enthusiast and avid fisherman, purchased his country home outside of Lima in 1988, the grounds were one thing that attracted him to the property. There were well established flower beds for his wife, Carolyn, a green thumb from a family of gardeners, and there was a deep farm pond for Jim to nurture into the perfect swimming and fishing hole. And indeed, the beautiful flower beds and bucolic pond teeming with fish and wildlife that they have cultivated provide a scenic backdrop to their attractive rural abode.One of Reber’s first endeavors was to control algae and better oxygenate the one acre pond that is 18 feet at its deepest.“When I first purchased the property, the pond had algae blooms. I pumped copper sulfate in to control those blooms and got some grass carp — which are vegetarians and are about 25 to 30 inches long — to take care of the algae problems. We put in bubblers and aerators and that has seemed to improve the health of the pond, as well. They help reduce muck in the bottom and are important to keep the water moving to help prevent fish kills. In the summer, oxygen settles to the bottom and in winter fish consume the oxygen and get oxygen deprived, so you really want to keep the water circulating,” Reber said.Reber uses blue black colorant to manage water color. To proactively manage against algae, he uses a product called “BioBlend” once a month, which he says has made a huge difference in water appearance and quality, making for excellent fish production. Because beneath the surface of this meticulously cared for pond is a thriving bluegill population and a collection of lunker-sized largemouth bass that Reber has allowed to flourish.“Since 1988, I have stocked the pond four or five times with fish from a fish truck out of Arkansas, following the guidelines for how many fish to stock per acre as described in the Ohio DNR’s Ohio Pond Management Handbook. I stocked bluegill and largemouth and now have some nice 18 to 24 inchers in the pond. But I also have birds that fly into the pond and bring fish eggs from elsewhere on their feet and feathers. You have no control over “bird-feet fish,” so we have had some catfish in here throughout the years that we didn’t put in. They would come up and bump into the kids when they were swimming and scare the crap out of them, so we fished them out,” Reber said.Reber’s pond is the perfect place to take a kid fishing or enjoy a few casts after a long day, and the chances are more than good that the fisherman will catch some big, healthy, active fish.“I have never fed fish like some do and I have never put any structure in the pond, either. My secret is based on the idea of the classic fish food chain: fish eat other fish. Bigger fish eat smaller fish — and I’ve always had plenty of little fish for the predatory big ones. We haven’t stocked in several years and the pond is pretty much self-sustaining now and we have some nice-sized bluegill and plenty of bass, big and small. In the spring, I see fish spawning and a lot of little fish coming up,” he said.Reber, who has fished many of the best waters across the continent, also finds great pleasure simply casting a line closer to home. The pond is a micro-ecosystem nestled amongst the surrounding farm fields and is a sanctuary to a variety of wildlife, which also appeals to Reber.“Fishing is a disease that you catch. Like any pursuit, it gets into you. Fishing is an enjoyable way to experience nature in remote places but it is also great to go out after dinner and catch a few bass. I love to go out and spin cast or keep up on my fly casting. The pond attracts a lot of wild animals, which we enjoy viewing. It brings in a lot of wildlife and birds that we would not see without it. We get great blue herons and green herons that fly over from Grand Lake St. Mary’s. Deer come in at dusk to water. The young ones are so much fun to watch. We also have good numbers of migrating waterfowl come through and see some interesting ducks, like buffleheads and mergansers, and obviously mallards and geese,” Reber said. “One time a flock of eight to 10 turkeys came down the fencerow and some geese objected and tried to run them off. Then a tom strutted up the bank, puffed himself up large, stared them down, and the geese took off. It was quite a sight,” Reber said.The pond was a boon to the Reber family when their children were growing up, and it continues to offer wonder and enjoyment for their growing family and the Reber’s close friends.“For a family with children, the pond opened up so many avenues for so many things to do. In the spring and summer, we would go on nature cruises in the peddle boat with the kids and find redwing blackbird nests in the cattails. My son, Ted, brought tadpoles and frogs that he and Carolyn netted into the elementary school for science projects. We had a lot of swimming parties as the kids got older and we would hire a lifeguard for any big event — the problem with a pond is that if you go under, you can’t be seen, so we wanted to be extra careful,” he said. “This is a unique property outside of Lima’s city limits and suburbs. The pond, flower gardens, and rural setting are attractive to people from around suburbia and are often focal points of a gathering when people come out for a dinner or cookout.”Both the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and Jim Reber recommend that anyone interested in digging a new pond or beginning to manage an existing pond should do their homework prior to starting. The Ohio Pond Management Handbook is an excellent place to start. This invaluable resource is available for free online and is downloadable from the Ohio DNR website at http://wildlife.ohiodnr.gov/portals/wildlife/pdfs/publications/fish%20management/Pub432.pdf.The informative and in-depth handbook is written for pond owners new and old and landowners planning to construct one. Chapters are devoted to topics such as pond construction, stocking the ponds, management practices for the best fishing, managing aquatic vegetation, fish health, pond problems and solutions, and wildlife habitat enhancement around the pond.Farm ponds offer a wealth of beauty and charm to a country landscape and can afford their owners with a variety of family, social, and recreational activities, while at the same time providing important habitat for native animal life.Jim Reber’s stewardship of his farm pond, and the rich experiences with which he has been rewarded, reflect farmer and author Louis Bromfield’s observation that “our ponds are each one a spot of beauty, a small universe teeming with life…the laws of nature operate under the close and intimate gaze of the interested. Farm ponds provide not only food for the table but peace for the soul and an understanding of man’s relationship to the universe.”last_img read more

first_imgTiafoe was disappointed he could not stay atop Federer after breaking in the opening game.“He won by the skin of his teeth,” Tiafoe said. “I felt like when I was playing well, I was controlling most of the rallies. When I was hitting the ball big, he wasn’t really doing much except staying steady with me.”But that was enough. Federer has not made a first-round exit in a Grand Slam since the 2003 French Open and has never lost an opener on the New York hardcourts. But Tiafoe tested him.“It was more than a test,” Federer said. “It was exciting. It’s why I came to New York as well, to go through these emotions.”It also was Federer’s first match under the $150 million Arthur Ashe Stadium roof that became operational last year.“To see the new addition of the sliding roof, it’s wonderful,” Federer said. “I’m the lucky guy who got to play through the rain so I’m very happy about the roof.”Asked about the noise level with the roof closed, an issue that drew complaints from top-ranked rival Rafael Nadal, Federer said, “When you guys get going it’s even a better atmosphere than we used to have.”“I expected worse because I heard comments like this. I didn’t think it was that bad and when the crowd got into it, it was really cool… I felt like the energy was back in the building again. It was a lot of fun playing in that atmosphere.”Nadal and Federer have never faced each other at the US Open but could meet in this year’s semi-finals.And Federer is the only player who can dethrone Nadal as world number one at the US Open. WATCH: Streetboys show off slick dance moves in Vhong Navarro’s wedding Third seed Federer will next meet either Russia’s Mikhail Youzhny, who is 0-16 against him, or Slovenia’s Blaz Kavcic, 0-1 against Federer, as the Swiss chases a record sixth US Open crown.The 36-year-old Swiss, who won this year’s Wimbledon and Australian Open crowns, took the US Open titles from 2004-2008.The intense match came after limited preparation due to his back issues.“I always knew I was going to come in rusty or not great. I was hoping to start better,” Federer said. “I was being too cautious with my movement. In the second set it all started to come together.“I enjoyed myself even though I was maybe tired and nervous at the end. It was cool to be part of that match. I’m really excited I won.”ADVERTISEMENT NEW YORK, NY – AUGUST 29: Frances Tiafoe congratulates Roger Federer of Switzerland after their match on Day Two of the 2017 US Open at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center on August 29, 2017 in the Flushing neighborhood of the Queens borough of New York City.
