LONDON: Substitute Alexandre Lacazette ended his goal drought as Arsenal secured their first English Premier League win since New Year’s Day with a 4-0 victory over Newcastle United at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.Lacazette had gone nine games in all competitions without a goal before he found the target with a mis-hit shot in the final moments of the game.The win moves Arsenal up to the tenth position and will give them hope they can make a late push towards European qualification for next season.After a goalless first half, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang put the Gunners in front with a powerful header from a Nicolas Pepe cross.Pepe himself added the second, from close range after good work from the impressive Bukayo Saka.Mesut Ozil put the game beyond the Magpies with his first goal of the season with a tap-in after a flowing Arsenal move involving 35 passes and touches from all 11 players — the most passes for any goal in the league this season.Lacazette left on the bench with youngster Eddie Nketiah, finished off a smart move for Mikel Arteta’s side, who recorded just their second win since the Spaniard took over at the club.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest In 2016, the Soil Fertility Lab at Ohio State offered a third party evaluation of proprietary soil amendments and foliar applications aimed at improving the mineral nutrition and productivity of crops. This service intends to provide timely and unbiased information on these products for farmers. In 2015, we tested submitted products from the following companies:AgZyme® by Ag ConceptsBAM-FX by Zero Gravity SolutionsMethods: Corn and soybean trials were planted at three sites on Ohio State University Research Farms: 1) Clark County at the Western Agricultural Research Station in S. Charleston, 2) Wayne County at the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center in Wooster, 3) Wood County at the Northwest Agricultural Research Station in Custar.Data collected include: 1) Complete soil sample analysis prior to planting, 2) Emergence counts at V5 for corn and soybean, 3) Whole plant sampling at V5 for total biomass and complete nutrient analysis, 4) Leaf sampling at R1 for corn and soybean for complete nutrient analysis, 5) Final stand counts at maturity for corn, and 6) Harvest grain yield with complete grain nutrient analysis.Results: Across all three sites, no consistent trends were found with any of the tested products. No products significantly affected a measured property at more than 1 site. For both corn and soybean, no product treatment yielded significantly greater grain than the control. This was only one year of field data, so interpretations should be made with caution, especially considering the dry weather encountered in the 2016 field season.The summary report can be found here: go.osu.edu/SAFAFor 2017, we have adjusted our pricing for this service, collecting less data but hopefully making the service more affordable to vendors and retailers.

I once had a great mentor tell me that I invested too much of my time and my emotional energy in politics. It was during law school, and everything then was political. At least it was for me. Politics was all-consuming.My mentor told me to stop focusing on politics and start focusing on the difference that I wanted to make in the world. And he told me to focus on taking care of my family and giving them the life that I wanted for them. He said that I would have a bigger impact if I detached from politics.I took his advice. I like to observe politics, but I am not emotionally invested.Your Government Won’t Make You HappyThere are a lot of politicians competing for your attention—and your money—right now. They want you to support them and help them become President of the United States. All of these politicians talk a lot about how they are going to help you, and it all sounds pretty good.You might even believe you will be happier if the candidate you support is elected. But you won’t be any happier or any more successful after this interminable election cycle.Your Physiological NeedsThe government isn’t going to make sure that your physiological needs are met. The government, try as it may, isn’t going to give you shelter, with food, or with health care. It may provide a social safety net in each of these areas, but if you are counting on government to take care of you, you will always have to fear not having your very basic physiological needs met.Do you know anyone who is receiving the government’s help in these areas of whom you are jealous? Is there anyone you know who receives help with whom you would trade places?Your Safety NeedsYour government isn’t going to keep you safe either. It can’t protect you from violence, even though it does its very best to keep the most violent people from harming others by locking them up. It also does a poor job protecting you from people who are violent because they are mentally ill.The police aren’t normally around when a crime is being committed, even though they’d love to be there to prevent you from being harmed.Your government does the best it can with big threats, but can’t help with most of the personal threats to your physical safety.Your Need for LoveNo government is going to meet your need for love, friendship, or companionship. The need for love is just as important as the physiological needs. As far as I know, no government has ever even been designed to address these very fundamental human needs.Do you know anyone who has had their need for love and companionship as a result of government action? The best the government can do is prevent your rights here from being infringed.Your Desire for SuccessYour government isn’t going to provide you with happiness. It isn’t going to make sure you reach your full potential, and it isn’t going to ensure that your dreams come true or that you reach your goals. Your government isn’t going to participate in your success. This is true no matter who is elected.Do you know anyone who owes their success to their government alone? There are people who are successful in politics, and they go on to make a lot of money when they leave, but no government action creates individual success outside of politics.At its very best, your government is going to create an environment in which you can “pursue happiness.” But you are going to have to hustle, and you are going to have to do the pursuing. This is where you should focus. Get the Free eBook! Learn how to sell without a sales manager. Download my free eBook! You need to make sales. You need help now. We’ve got you covered.

No Big Ten men’s basketball team has been playing better of late than Ohio State. The Buckeyes (17-5, 6-3 Big Ten) have won three straight games, including back-to-back comfortable wins against two ranked foes in Indiana and Maryland. We now know why Thad Matta’s team has been performing at such a high level. The Ohio State coach promised his team an NBA Jam arcade game for their players’ lounge in exchange for a win streak. The Buckeyes are on a winning streak, so Matta delivered the game Friday. Is there a better arcade game than NBA Jam?Nope. Ohio State faces Purdue at Mackey Arena next Wednesday.
NEW YORK — Small business issues often win bipartisan support on Capitol Hill, but given the divisions in the incoming 116th Congress, advocates for companies have low expectations.Even after lawmakers deal with the partial government shutdown, a Democratic House, a Republican Senate and ongoing investigations of the Trump White House and campaign are expected to be obstacles to much small business-related work getting done.“I think 2019 is going to be a quiet year with maybe small reforms on tax things, maybe some trade legislation getting through,” said Karen Kerrigan, president of the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council.Company owners may see more movement in their states, said John Arensmeyer, CEO of Small Business Majority, who called governors “more aggressive than anyone” on helping small business.A look at issues that small business advocates expect to be on government agendas in 2019:HEALTH CARELawmakers were expected to introduce health care bills even before the federal court ruling last month that the Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional. Since that ruling, which is expected to be appealed and could reach the Supreme Court, House Democrats have said they plan to intervene in the defence of the law.Democrats expect to introduce bills to limit the use of low-cost short-term health plans that have limited coverage and bolster the ACA’s coverage of people with pre-existing conditions. Republican opposition to Democratic efforts is likely, although many GOP lawmakers voiced support for pre-existing condition coverage during their election campaigns.Small business groups want Congress to pass legislation limiting increases in health care costs — but they’re not optimistic.“To do that would be controversial,” said Todd McCracken, president of the National Small Business Association.Legislation expanding the availability of association health plans, or AHPs, stalled in the 115th Congress, and could be reintroduced. These plans allow individuals like sole proprietors to band together and buy insurance. They’re illegal under the ACA but the Trump administration last year issued rules making it possible for some owners to join AHPs. However, some states have laws making it difficult or impossible for their residents to join the plans, and more states might enact their own legislation.Changes in health care law are most likely to come from the states, Arensmeyer said.TAXESLegislation to simplify tax code provisions that affect small businesses languished in the last Congress and is expected to be reintroduced. Among other things, the Small Business Owners’ Tax Simplification Act would make due dates for estimated tax payments the last date of calendar year quarters. It would also make it easier for owners to deduct their own health care premiums.“They’re common sense reforms that are supported by both sides of the aisle,” Kerrigan says.Some business groups will seek further tax code simplification because of the administrative burden taxes place on owners. But hopes aren’t high.“Any material simplification is probably not going to happen with the divided Congress,” said Keith Hall, president of the National Association for the Self-Employed.TRADECongress is expected to consider the U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement early in 2019. The trade deal, intended to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement, is opposed by Democrats who want stronger protections for U.S. workers from low-wage Mexican competition.Many U.S. small manufacturers export to Mexico and Canada and want the deal ratified.“It’s bad for business, particularly for small businesses, if the agreement just went away,” McCracken said.EMPLOYMENT ISSUESThe Labor Department is expected to issue its new regulations on overtime — which employees must be given overtime, and which are exempt. The Trump administration is rewriting rules written under the Obama administration and then blocked by a federal judge; those rules would have doubled the pay threshold at which workers would be exempt from overtime, to $47,476 from $23,660. An estimated 4.2 million people would have been able to begin earning OT under the rules.Kerrigan expects the rules to be issued early in the year, and predicted the threshold would be a compromise between the Obama administration version and no increase.INFRASTRUCTURELegislation to repair the nation’s roadways and bridges is expected in the new Congress although the Trump administration $1.5 billion proposal announced last February foundered. McCracken says the parties remain too far apart for a bill to pass — unless the economy provides some motivation for a compromise.“Infrastructure is one of those things that can generate a lot of activity and bolster the economy,” he says. Many companies that do the actual repairing of roads and bridges are small businesses like general contractors.INTERNET PRIVACYLaws aimed at protecting consumers’ privacy and personal information are expected to be pursued in state legislatures, and possibly in Congress, after California’s passage last year of its Consumer Privacy Protection Act. The law, which takes effect Jan. 1, 2020, requires businesses to disclose how they use personal information and gives consumers more control over how that information is used.The prospect of businesses having to comply with 50 different laws has some members of Congress in favour of creating a national standard. “That’s where you may see some bipartisanship,” Kerrigan said. But McCracken said it’s unlikely such a bill would pass both houses.PAID LEAVELegislation is expected in more states providing for paid sick leave and family leave for employees. Twelve states and 20 cities and counties have sick leave laws, which allow employees to accrue paid time off for their illnesses or a family member’s. Paid family leave, including time off to care for ill relatives, is the law only in California, New Jersey, New York and Rhode Island; those states have employee and/or employer-funded insurance pools to partially replace workers’ wages.Democrats in the House may also introduce family leave legislation, but it likely wouldn’t survive the Senate, McCracken said.___For more small business news, insights and inspiration, sign up for our free weekly newsletter here: http://discover.ap.org/ssb_____Follow Joyce Rosenberg at www.twitter.com/JoyceMRosenberg .
