Photos | Exploring the California super bloom on Table Mountain

first_imgCHICO — A visit to Table Mountain during the months of spring rain is the best time to find fresh wildflowers before summer heat sets in. With the promise of a super bloom this year thanks to several extremely heavy storms, I was very hopeful about this spring’s potential for flowers up on the meadows and along the flowing creek, and took an afternoon drive to the mountain before the rain clouds returned.Driving from Chico to Durham-Pentz Road and Cherokee Road up to North Table Mountain …last_img

Fist Handle design Metal teeth Afro Hair Comb : A kitchen tool, not a hair one

first_img Sorry i made a mistake in the last review. It was excellent and on time. That was meant for a different seller x. I couldn’t buy one in the high street as good as this one, they were plastic and the teeth were to thick. This one is just perfect for me i would recoded it highly to anyone. Great comb for medium sized afro. Great comb for medium sized afro. However i just wish the picks where a little longer becaaue when u pick ur hair it doesnt reach the midle of your head. I use this item to cut onions, cucumbers etc. I wanted this for holding onions and such like to cut them and it works great. It doesn’t look like this picture and i don’t have long hair. But it is absolutely perfect for holding onions and other stuff while i slice them, which was the reason i bought it. Another use for this comb which is very useful. I have actually bought these for holding food such as onions in place while cutting them. Perfect size, lovely finish, combs well and doesn’t cut hair like other combs, very pleased with my purchase, will buy some more for spares. Ive had this for over 6 months now. Still my favorite afro comb. Great even with thick/ rough hair. I’ve got really tough hair and one of the teeth fell out at some point. A kitchen tool, not a hair one. Used for holding fruit or veg still for easy slicing, a great addition to kitchen tools. Well made but minor cosmetic difference to picture. Feels sturdy and arrived quickly. Functions 100%only gripe is that it doesn’t look like the picture. It’s one of those copycat versions that has the circle cross window bit in the handle. Arrived on time and does what is suggests on the blurb.I utilized it for a distinct objective as a kitchen utensil to aid slice veggies, but it seems like a strong comb.It does not look particularly the identical but nevertheless very good. Solution is nice but it is marginally even larger than described with a like cross in the center just before the handle part with the fist. I would advocate the seller to update the picture of the product.My son has long gone by way of a number of plastic afro combs around the years. Teeth are strong, very good grip handle. Although i think would be even better if the space between the comb was larger for. Although i think would be even better if the space between the comb was larger for children with thicker hair because with this one you have to nib at those thick air at the back of the head until it loosen up enough to comb properly. That been said this comb is a must if your child`s got afro hair. My brother loved his afro comb, he still uses it like mad. There isn’t any bad things to say about this afro comb as its really good. I bought this for my husband. It’s good quality and he go everywhere with it. Bought this comb for my daughter 4a hair. It isn’t the best at detangling her thick hair, as the teeth a too close together. It is well made and of good quality, which is amazing for the price. It does not look exactly the same but still goodbut it looks like a sturdyAlthough i think would be even better if the space between the comb was larger for Perfect Afro comb!Strong and ResilientBest Afro Comb YetFist Handle design Metal teeth Afro Hair Comb.

Glen Newcomer, Sept. 11

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest I still believe additional rain will benefit the soybean crop. The same holds true for the corn crop. We are, however, getting exceptionally dry. We had hit and miss rains last week but not enough to have an impact or make much of a yield difference. Lack of rain and an early frost are our two greatest concerns at this time.Most of the corn is still not black layered or fully matured. We need at least 100 growing degree units on the April-planted corn and probably an additional 300 or 350 growing degree units for the replant corn that was planted in early June. We absolutely do not want to have any type of frost on any of our crops for quite some time. Based on recent weather, we are only accumulating 10 to 15 growing degree units per day. At that rate we need several weeks of above normal temperatures before we can handle a frost in this part of the state. We have noticed some premature death in corn as a result of the dry weather, which could create standability or stalk issues in this crop.We’ll probably be shelling corn before we cut soybeans because of those issues. As a result of multiple stresses on this crop, I believe the overall corn plant health has been compromised.We have not found high populations of soybean aphids that other areas have experienced. Soybean leaf diseases are minimal. Some farmers are seeing sudden death syndrome and white mold in their soybeans. Looking forward, soybeans are just totally dependent on the amount of rain we receive between now and full maturity. With the cooler temperatures, it has definitely slowed down the progression of harvest. I do not anticipate harvesting any soybeans in September this year. We may shell some corn before we start on soybeans.Some of the initial tonnage reports from silage being made may indicate that the corn crop is better than we anticipate. Let’s hope so. This year all crops are going to be quite variable and unpredictable in yield.last_img read more

Adityanath asks BJP functionaries to shun contracts

first_imgUttar Pradesh Chief Minister Adityanath Yogi today asked all BJP office bearers and public representatives not to undertake any contractual work and instead monitor them for effective execution.He said BJP’s unprecedented win the recent Assembly elections had only increased the responsibilities of the party and its workers.“No office bearer of the party or any public representative should undertake any contractual work (thekedaari). They should rather monitor them. And, if they find any discrepancy, they can inform me, so that action could be taken immediately against the guilty,” he said.Addressing people at the BJP’s regional office on the second day of his Gorakhpur visit, he said, “After victory, a number of important works have to be accomplished. The people of the state have reposed their faith in us, and the onus is on us to meet their expectations, while ensuring accountability of our actions.”Adityanath also laid stress on sense of responsibility and accountibility among his ministerial colleagues.Also Read 80% of new U.P. MLAs are crorepatis  “I am the CM. (Surya Pratap) Shahi ji is Cabinet minister. But the post of CM or Cabinet Minister is not meant for flaunting. In fact, it is an indicator of one’s responsibility and accountability towards the public, which elected you with an overwhelming majority,” he said, pointing towards some ministers present there.‘Work 20 hours a day or leave’The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, who is still the local MP, urged the party to gear up for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.“In the next two years, you have to work tirelessly, irrespective of the fact that there is sunshine, rain or biting cold. Efforts should be made to ensure that the welfare schemes of the Centre percolate to the last strata of the society, and needy people are able to avail its benefits,” he said, amidst a thunderous applause from the audience.Underscoring the need for improved work culture, the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister also said people who were prepared to work for 18-20 hours a day are “most welcome” to join him, the rest are free to leave.“Time has come that we should work 18-20 hours a day. There no time for any entertainment (mauj masti),” he said.He also urged the people to help him break the negative image of UP.“For the past few years Uttar Pradesh has been defined as a state from whose boundaries begins darkness, from where the pot-holed roads begin and the place from where the women start to feel insecure. I was to break this mindset,” he said, and added that he wants to make UP a place, where women feel safe and secure.‘Doors must be open to the public’Adityanath said, “I would like to assure that in the next two months, people would come to know how a state government should work. I have got an opportunity to clean the mess (kachdaa saaf karne kaa maukaa milaa hai), and I will do it.”He also advised his ministers that they should be accessible to the public. “The doors of your house and office must remain open to the public. This would ensure that the government is able to reach to the last person of the society.No one would go to bed empty stomach and money would not be a constraint in marriage of any girl,” he said.Referring to the acid attack on a woman from Rae Bareli, Adityanath, said, “The officials are working on ‘puraanaa dharraa’ (old style). I went to KGMU to inquire about the well being of the woman and gave them ultimatum that everything must be done in the next couple of hours.”‘No place for criminals’He also referred to the Agra loot, which was worked out.“There is no place for those who give patronage to the gooda elements, mafia, criminal and other rogue elements. They have the option of leaving UP or else they would land in places designated for them (jails),” he said, while hinting at massive revamping of law and order.He also talked about people committing electricity theft facing the music. “The situation has already improved in Gorakhpur and it would soon improve in the state as well,” he said.“If you find any discrepancy or anomaly, just message me the relevant details. I will ensure action,” he said.last_img read more
