HARRY KANE labelled Sunday’s clash with Chelsea ‘the big one’ — as Jose Mourinho prepares to face another of his former sides.Kane admits Mourinho, the only manager other than Mauricio Pochettino he has played under in his senior Tottenham career, has brought the feel-good factor back.3 Harry Kane has insisted Jose Mourinho has brought the feel-good factor back to TottenhamA return to the top four is within their grasp over the festive period, with fifth-placed Spurs now just three points behind the Blues in the Premier League.Mourinho collected his fourth league win in five since moving to North London thanks to a last-gasp winner from Jan Vertonghen at Wolves on Sunday.And now England skipper Kane wants to keep that momentum going with a huge home clash against the Blues on Sunday.He said: “Absolutely. Next is the big one.“If we can win that and push into the top four, then we have fixtures over the Christmas period that we feel like we can definitely win. But I don’t want to say anything now and lose at the weekend!“Even before Chelsea lost 1-0 to Bournemouth on Saturday, we said it’s two important games.”Wolves were one point ahead of us. These two games were very important for momentum, going into that Christmas period.3 Spurs can leapfrog Chelsea in the table should they beat them on Sunday“We knew how much it meant at Wolves, with Chelsea losing on Saturday it meant even more.”At the moment we’re in a good spot — just one loss in five in the Premier League — but we’ve got to try to win next week and push into the top four and go on from there.”That one loss came against Jose’s former club Manchester United. And Kane is happy to learn from his new manager’s first-class pedigree, with Mourinho also winning three titles in two spells at the Blues.Kane, 26, added: “You know I got on very well with Poch and I respect him very, very, very much.“But Mourinho’s got his own style, his own way of doing things. For me, it’s about learning that way.“Obviously my top-level career has only been with one manager so for me it’s good to experience new things and see how different managers work.“Mourinho’s one of the highest level managers in our sport. Whenever a new manager comes in, everyone’s ready, wants to work, wants to impress.3LATEST TOTTENHAM NEWSHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotGossipALL GONE PETE TONGVertonghen wanted by host of Italian clubs as long Spurs spell nears endBELOW PARRSpurs suffer blow with Parrott to miss Prem restart after appendix operationPicturedSHIRT STORMNew Spurs 2020/21 home top leaked but angry fans slam silver design as ‘awful”STEP BY STEP’Jose fears for players’ welfare during restart as stars begin ‘pre-season’KAN’T HAVE THATVictor Osimhen keen on Spurs move but only if they sell Kane this summer“But it’s important over this month — a busy period — and in January that we carry it on.

During the course of history, many ships have been claimed along the Wild Atlantic Way. Donegal has three hugely famous historic shipwrecks just off Malin Head. Many British battleships were wrecked off the rugged Donegal coast as Malin Head was used as a lookout point for enemies during both world wars. HMS TransylvaniaThe HMS Transylvania was completed in 1925 in Glasgow and was intended to be a passenger ship. It was converted to be an armed merchant ship following the breakout of World War Two. It was sunk by a German U-boat in the early hours of the morning on the 10th of August, 1940. Out of the 336 that were on board, 36 perished. HMS AudaciousThe HMS Audacious was a Royal Navy ship which was sank in October 1914 by a German Naval mine just off Tory Island. Audacious was part of a Battle Squadron called the ‘super-dreadnoughts’. The fleet left Lough Swilly to go to Loch na Keal to conduct gunnery exercises when the mine hit the bottom of the boat.British officers tried to keep the sinking a secret however following the end of World War One a ‘delayed announcement’ appeared in The Times. SS Empire HeritageThis ship was en-route to Liverpool from New York when it was targetted by a German U-boat. 113 souls lost their lives when the ship went down.It makes an ideal diving spot as the wreckage lies only 70m deep. Tanks which fell off the ship can be seen lying on the ocean floor – a stark reminder of a time when the world was at war.Malin’s diving centre caters for those interested in exploring the wreckage.DD History: The story behind Donegal’s shipwrecks was last modified: August 25th, 2016 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalhms audacioushms transylvaniaMalin Headshipwrecksss empire heritageTory Island

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Randall Reeder, P.E., Ohio State University Extension Agricultural Engineer (retired)Jim Hershey, Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania, knows the absolute necessity for keeping pollutants out of streams. His family farms in the Susquehanna River watershed, which flows into the Chesapeake Bay. When severe restrictions were placed on crop and livestock farms a few years ago, the Hershey Farm was already in compliance.Cover crops and continuous no-till are keys to meeting restrictions on keeping nutrients and sediment out of streams and lakes. We need to recognize that Ohio farmers will eventually need to meet the “Chesapeake Bay” standards for Lake Erie and the Mississippi River.Jim Hershey spoke at the Aug. 29 no-till field day at Wooster. He emphasized that cover crops should be treated as a cash crop.Here’s what cover crops provide: increased water holding capacity, reduced weed pressure, reduced crop stress, reduced slug pressure, increased organic matter, and herbicides can be cut by two-thirds when planting green.Any green living cover will help reduce carbon dioxide loss into the atmosphere. In contrast, a conventional corn-soybean rotation annually loses about 1,000 pounds of carbon per acre. No-till with cover crops can be part of a solution for global warming.The Hershey Farm is an innovator (and inventor) for interseeding cover crops into corn. They build and sell interseeders, 6- and 12-row. Hershey, and many others, are researching various cover crops to find ones that can germinate and survive the summer without reducing corn yields.At the field day, twenty speakers covered a range of topics. Rory Lewandowski, OSU Extension, organized a session on using cover crops for forage and erosion control that featured three local farmers: Mike Rupp, Doyle Stoller and Alan Kozak. Jim Hoorman, NRCS, spoke on success with no-till corn, and Ryan Haden, OSU-ATI, shared his research with interseeding cover crops into corn.
