By Kristen PlankUniversity of Georgia Volume XXXIIINumber 1Page 1 Brussel sprouts – You may have difficulty getting your kids to try them , but it’s well worth the wait if you are partial to this small, cabbage-like vegetable. “Brussel sprouts can be directly seeded into the garden, but are more forgiving as transplants,” he said. Be wary of aphids, however, which can be easily removed with nontoxic insecticidal soap.Globe artichoke – Having grown this himself from seed, Boyhan gives tips on keeping this unique and tasty plant alive. “Start it in the fall, fertilize it well and keep it watered through the first year,” he said. It does not prefer organic matter, but likes a mineral-rich soil.Elephant garlic – As the name implies, this garlic comes in elephantine proportions, respectively. With a milder flavor than regular garlic, this crop will add new dimensions to any dinner table. “Elephant garlic is a winter crop that grows well here in Georgia,” said Boyhan. Make sure to evenly space bulbs three inches apart in the garden.Basil – It may not seem to fit in with the rest of these unique plants, but do not let this common herb fool you. The list of basil varieties, from cinnamon to lemon sweet, is extensive. “It grows like crazy, almost turning into a weed,” Boyhan said. “And you can harvest it multiple times.” Are you tired of planting the same garden vegetable year after year? A University of Georgia horticulturist says spice up your harvest by planting a diverse variety of vegetables and fruits.UGA Cooperative Extension horticulturist George Boyhan suggests planting the following 10 interesting crops you may never have heard of, much less tried.Colored cauliflower – As if it came straight out of the Wizard of Oz, this old-time vegetable now comes in bright orange, green and purple. “This is not something you will find in your local garden center,” Boyhan said. “You’ll have to look in seed catalogs.” Cauliflower requires rich soil, lots of water and a long, cool growing season. Space plants a foot apart. They are sensitive to stress.Tomatillos – Typically found in grocery stores, tomatillos look almost ornamental, Boyhan said.“They are considered a warm-season crop, like tomatoes, but they don’t like very hot weather,” he said. Like tomatoes, tomatillo plants should be started indoors and then transplanted. They are typically used in salsas and add tartness to recipes.Winter melons – Boyhan suggests adding variety to your culinary palette by planting Casaba melons and Crenshaw melons. “The sugars in these melons are much higher than your standard cantaloupe or watermelon,” he said. “And, they’ll be a good hit with the kids.” The Crenshaw melon has a salmon-pink flesh while the Casaba melon has green flesh. Both can be directly seeded into raised beds.Gourds – “The sky is the limit in terms of shapes, colors and sizes of gourds,” Boyhan said. While gourds are typically not eaten due to their bitter flesh, they are diverse in their uses, from birdhouses to ornaments. “They were really easy to grow,” said Karen Clark of Ball Ground, Ga. “We self-pollinated them ourselves which made it interesting and fun.” Gourds need enough room to grow so Boyhan suggests growing them up trellises.Kohlrabi – A winter crop that does well in Georgia, kohlrabi sounds more foreign than it tastes, Boyhan said. Similar to cabbage hearts but with a milder, sweeter flavor, this vegetable can be eaten raw or cooked. “Make sure to take precautions with this plant as it suffers from caterpillars,” Boyhan said. Peppers – From bell to jalapeño to habanero, this popular vegetable comes in varying shades of orange, red, chocolate and purple. It ranges in varying levels of taste, too, from sweetly mild to volcanically hot. “Peppers do very well here, as they are in the same family as tomatoes,” Boyhan said. Keep soil on the dry side, and do not over water.
It took a couple of periods to pull away, but the Huskies outplayed Beaverlodge on Friday night, and got the two points they wanted.It was the Blades who opened the scoring, when Taylor Jones picked up the puck in his zone, on a Huskies powerplay. Jones poked the puck around Linden Apsassin, soared down the left wing, and buried a shot low to the glove side on Ty Gullickson. But, the Huskies still had time remaining on the powerplay, and evened the tables just 16 seconds later, when Tyson Pederson found the puck on his stick in the slot, and rang it off the back bar. “I had lots of time and lots of room after a good pass from Darcy Bell” Pederson said. The defenceman fired the puck home like a natural goal scorer, and says his confidence is riding high early in the season. “I’m totally healthy now, and good to go” he said.- Advertisement -A few minutes later, Pederson again found himself alone in the slot. This time, the pass was in his skates, so he calmly dished it to Cody Kalb, who deposited it past Beaverlodge goalie Cody Gayse. Before the second period was out, Beaverlodge evened the score on the powerplay, when Aaron Dumas fired a point shot through traffic and past Gullickson, to make it 2-2 after 20 minutes.In the second period, the Huskies seemed to find their groove, and controlled the vast majority of play. For extended periods, the pups cycled the puck, and almost made even-strength hockey look like a powerplay. But, the Blades goaltender and defence withstood the attack, and it remained 2-2 after two periods.Finally, in the third period, the flood gates opened, and the Huskies pulled away. Cam MacKinnon got things going, when he took a Robbie Sidhu feed and fired it past Gayse. Seven minutes in, Sidhu set up another, when he brought the puck into the Blades zone, and delayed long enough to find Cody Hildebrand driving to the net.Advertisement After Hildebrand’s goal, Huskies Captain Payden Wongstedt fought Blade Josh Majoros. Majoros fought well, but was favouring his left arm afterwards. He was eventually treated by paramedics, diagnosed with a dislocated shoulder.On the ice, the Huskies continued to pressure. Cody Kalb scored his second of the game when Dylan Apsassin stole a puck in Beaverlodge territory, and gave it to Kalb, who banked it off Gayse and in. Kole Norris and Kyle Porter added two more quick goals, sending Gayse to the bench, and Beaverlodge backup Brett Hommy into the game.Hommy allowed just one goal, when Brighton Campbell busted down the left side, and found trailer Carter Sali, who notched the first goal of his rookie season. Beaverlodge would add a late consolation goal, when Bobby Bailey banged a rebound past Gullickson for Beaverlodge’s second powerplay goal of the game.And, as the final horn sounded, Cody Kalb squared off with Blade Nick Fitzpatrick, giving Kalb a ‘Gordie Howe hat-trick’, and giving the North Peace Arena crowd one last reason to cheer.Advertisement The Huskies won the game 8-3, in a game that was likely their best so far of the season. Their coaching staff seemed duly impressed with their performance. “I thought it was a good effort for 60 minutes” said Coach Bob Kalb after the game. “They battled hard” he said, “but we’re so much bigger and stronger that I think they just wore down finally.” [asset|aid=1978|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=341b4f482c3b0f17317596e068d3b182-bob-inevitable_1_Pub.mp3]Coach Kalb was also happy with Tyson Negus’ effort, in his first game as a Husky. “He was a little excited at times, running around and out of position, but he did some good things” said Kalb, adding “I like the way Tyson skates, and competes, and he’ll only get better.”The Huskies will hope to match Friday’s performance when they visit Whitecourt on Saturday for their first matchup of the season against the vaunted Wolverines. Whitecourt beat Slave Lake 6-4 on Friday, meaning the Wolverines (5-0) remain one point ahead of the Huskies in the NWJHL standings. Coach Kalb knows Saturday’s game in Whitecourt is a big test for his club, though he thinks his team is prepared. [asset|aid=1979|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=341b4f482c3b0f17317596e068d3b182-bob-tomorrow_1_Pub.mp3]In other Huskies news, Payden Wongstedt has been officially named the team Captain. Brennan Billey is also expected to join the team soon, likely next weekend.

Arunima SinhaAmid the outpouring of sympathy and financial aid for injured national volleyball and football player Arunima Sinha, generous amounts of which were doled out to score political brownie points, a crucial aspect was bypassed – the quality of medical attention being delivered to her.The 23-year-old athlete, who lost her left leg after being pushed off a moving train by goons, underwent a second surgery at Lucknow’s Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj Medical University (CSMMU) on Sunday owing to an infection in the amputated limb. She was shifted from Bareilly District Hospital on Saturday noon after developing multiple complications.Apart from the swelling and infection, Arunima’s haemoglobin level had plummeted because of excessive bleeding.This necessitated an emergency blood transfusion on Saturday night. She has been given two bottles of blood since she was admitted to the Lucknow hospital.Officially, her condition continued to be serious but stable. Earlier, however, CSMMU chief medical superintendent Prof SN Shankhwar said a team of doctors decided to re-perate the athlete’s left leg to save her life.The doctors revealed that she had undergone debridement under general anesthesia. Debridement surgery is done to help wounds heal quickly. She was also found to have suffered multiple fractures on her right leg.Shankhwar said she had been admitted under Prof Vineet Sharma and Dr Santosh Kumar of the department of orthopaedic surgery. Her case was that of traumatic below- knee amputation on the left leg with compound fracture on the right leg.No wonder Arunima’s mother Gyanbala had a sinking feeling when she saw her at CSMMU. “I was horrified by what I saw when the doctors were cleaning the wounds on her amputated left leg. It was rotten up to her knee. There was moist dead tissue around the area. That portion of her limb has become numb. I am a health supervisor in Ambedkar Nagar and realised that the situation is serious,” Gyanbala said, recounting her brief meeting with her daughter who was in agony.advertisementThe medical teams treating Arunima inexplicably kept her family members in the dark. “I fail to understand why the doctors are not telling me the actual condition of my daughter. Late on Friday night, all of a sudden I was told by the Bareilly doctors that she would have to be shifted to CSMMU’s Trauma Centre at Lucknow. Although they were very supportive, they didn’t tell me what the problem was. I also overheard some doctors saying that she should be shifted to a Delhi hospital,” a worried Gyanbala said.”The authorities took five days to shift her from Bareilly to Lucknow. It is only five days after the incident that we have come to know that she has fractured her right leg as well,” she added.”While we are receiving help from all quarters, I’m just hoping that my daughter survives this ordeal. I want people to pray for her recovery. The Railways and CISF have agreed to give her a job. The Union sports ministry, UP government, Samajwadi Party, two cricket players and many individuals have extended their support to us,” she said.Arunima’s elder sister Lakshmi Sinha said: “The attention of the entire nation is fixed on her. We believe the doctors would have saved her leg if she was directly brought to Lucknow. But this is not the time for levelling allegations.”Divulging details of the treatment, Shankhwar said: “The left leg stump wound was full of slough and necrotic tissue. All superficial debris was removed. The patient was then planned for debridement under general anesthesia after her haemoglobin built up. She is currently admitted in the high dependency ward of the Trauma Centre.”For his part, Bareilly District Hospital medical superintendent Dr Vijay Yadav said: “We did our best and recommended that she be shifted to Lucknow as soon as we saw some improvement in her health. A doctor and a pharmacist here even donated blood for Arunima.”At Lucknow, Prof. Abbas Ali Mehdi, who is in charge of the Trauma Centre, said: “The hospital authorities have decided to treat her free of cost. We are giving her the best possible medical care.” The doctors also said that two CISF jawans, Ram Pal and Thakur Das, had given their blood for Arunima on Saturday.The victim and her family have indeed been flooded with offers of help. In the latest such case, the IIIT, Allahabad, announced that it would give her a highly advanced artificial limb free of cost. IIIT director M. D. Tiwari said: “We have developed an artificial leg which would even enable her to run as fast as she used to. We want her to resume playing.”advertisementEarlier, cricketers Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh offered her Rs 1 lakh each in aid. Union sports minister Ajay Maken also announced a medical compensation of Rs 2 lakh and an immediate ex gratia of Rs 25,000 for her.Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mayawati said Arunima would be given financial assistance to the tune of Rs 1 lakh by her government.Apart from this, Arunima has been offered jobs by the Railways and CRPF. The internationally acclaimed artificial limbs provider, Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti, also volunteered to equip her with the Jaipur Foot free of cost.Meanwhile, even after a lapse of five days, the GRP has failed to identify the miscreants who had thrown Arunima out of the train.Additional director general of Railways AK Jain had said the culprits would be nabbed with the help of sketches and announced a reward of Rs 15,000 to those who would help in catching them.
New Zealand authorities have seized the country’s largest cocaine shipment which arrived to the port of Tauranga hidden in a compartment attached to the underwater hull of Maersk Antares container vessel.A spokesperson from Maersk Line confirmed that the shipment was discovered on October 31, when the boxship arrived to Tauranga from Chile in the late evening hours.New Zealand’s Customs Service informed that members of a trans-national drug syndicate approached the ship and retrieved the cocaine, with a street value of around NZD 20 million (USD 13.8 million), from the compartment.The authorities executed search warrants in Tauranga, Mt Maunganui and residential addresses in Auckland on November 1 related to the shipment, which culminated in arrests of four foreign nationals. The arrested people are believed to be in no relation to the ship’s crew members.The Maersk Antares, which is deployed on Maersk Line’s AC3/Triple Star service, linking Latin America, New Zealand and Asia, departed the Port of Tauranga “as per the schedule with no delay to the service,” the spokesperson said.“Maersk is fully committed to abiding by the local laws of every jurisdiction we operate in. As such Maersk Line is cooperating fully with the New Zealand authorities,” Maersk Line informed.Assistant Commissioner Chambers said that this is the largest single seizure of cocaine in New Zealand, and that the shipment was destined for New Zealand.
