Virginia Fly Fishing & Wine Festival

first_imgFestival sponsors include Green Top, Temple Fork Outfitters, Gangler’s North Seal River Lodge, Norvise, Trout Unlimited, Harman’s North Fork Cabins, Reilly Rod Crafters, and many more. Held each year inside the Farm Bureau Building at the Meadow Event Park in Doswell, Virginia, this festival has become a must-do event for Mid-Atlantic fly anglers, who come out in droves to meet and learn from fly fishing guides, sporting lodges, outdoor artists, custom rod builders, fly tyers, specialty food vendors, and fly fishing outfitters from dream fishing locales like Pennsylvania, Montana, Colorado, Canada, Alaska, and the Bahamas. For 20 years, the Virginia Fly Fishing & Wine Festival, the first event of its kind in the country, has introduced fly fishing to would-be anglers young and old from all walks of life. And never has our insistent, angry, plugged-in, stressed-out culture needed the quiet sport more. This year’s festival opens its doors on January 11-12, 2020, from 9AM-5PM.   For those who love someone else who fishes, several of the Commonwealth’s best wineries will be at the Virginia Fly & Wine sampling their wares (for patrons 21 years and older). Brand new this year: Wineries from West Virginia and Oregon! In fact, the festival admission fee covers everything from wine tasting to free walkup casting classes.  Can’t cast? No problem: The festival offers a series of free and for-fee expert-taught fly casting classes for every skill level, including advanced casters and children. Got a Boy Scout? Perfect! He can earn his fly fishing merit badge through a class taught at the festival by BSA-certified instructors.  —Whiskey, Bourbon, & Bass Bugs with Lauren Riggleman of Silverback Distillery Credit Scott Hertzer. Credit West Virginia Fruit & Berry. Virginia is for outdoor lovers–and never more so than in the fall. Leaf peepers rejoice in afternoon hikes that show the Commonwealth’s glorious fall colors to advantage. Many enjoy crisp, locally grown Virginia apples in either “original crunchy,” “hot and spiced,” or “hard” form. And of course many Virginians will head to their local streams to play tug of war with native brook trout. The Commonwealth is chock full of great trout fisheries like the Jackson, South Holston, Rapidan, and Rose Rivers and Mossy Creek–as well as a host of streams in Shenandoah National Park. Is it any wonder, then, that Virginia is the birthplace of the first fly fishing festival?   Because the Virginia Fly & Wine is passionate about getting veterans out on the water, the festival partners with Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, a nationwide nonprofit dedicated to rehabilitating wounded service veterans through fly fishing and fly tying, regardless of their physical limitations. In addition, the festival works with Trout Unlimited Tri-State Conservation Camp, Backcountry Hunters & Anglers, Casting for Recovery, and the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries.   —Mayflies & Microbrews with entomologist Peter Stitcher —Advanced Fly Casting and Understanding Advanced Techniques with Master Certified Casting Instructor Mac Brown Credit Matt Riley.

Mattituck Tornado The First in 4 Years on Long Island

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York A “weak, short-lived” tornado touched down in Mattituck without causing injuries on Wednesday—four years to the day since the last twister hit Long Island, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).The small twister packed 70-mph winds, was 40-yards wide and traveled .3 miles as severe thunderstorms rolled through the East End at 4:25 p.m., shortly after NWS issued a tornado warning for the area, the agency said in preliminary findings. It was classified as an EFO—the weakest category on the tornado rating scale.“Wind damage was confined mainly to trees, where several trees were snapped in half,” Upton-based NWS meteorologists said in a statement. “Most wind damage was concentrated between Main Road and New Suffolk Avenue close to the corridor from Cardinal Drive southeast to Blossom Bend, where the tornado lifted before reaching New Suffolk Avenue.”Across the Long Island Sound in Connecticut, the same storm also spawned another EF0 tornado, which tossed a shed into a tree, an NWS meteorologist said.Before yesterday’s twister on the North Fork, the last tornado to hit Suffolk County struck four years ago to the day. The previous 85-mph tornado tore up Great River, Oakdale, Bohemia and Lake Ronkonkoma on Aug. 10, 2011. A month after that, an EF1 tornado with 110-mph winds touched down in Queens and Brooklyn. Thirty tornadoes have hit LI since 1950, according to NWS.As for the current weather, NWS issued a hazardous weather outlook for Nassau and Suffolk counties, citing the threat of thunderstorms capable of causing flash flooding through the weekend.last_img read more

Food & Beverage industry hit hardest by COVID-19: Report

first_imgRead also: [UPDATED] List of Jakarta malls, restaurants affected by COVID-19 outbreakLeonard offered several strategies applicable for businesses during difficult times like these. He suggested that business players could use the opportunity to make some reviews, get to know their customers and their needs, simplify their business processes, identify the products that are easy to sell, digitalize products into an easy-to-share catalog, add goods stocks, and give incentives to well-performing employees.In an effort to maintain a positive cash flow, businesses can focus on promotion for takeout deliveries, use a database of customers to communicate promotions through email, text messages and promote the use of digital payment, the report suggests.A focus on takeout deliveries has become one of the key strategies because data show that there has been a change in consumer behavior with more people opting for takeout food.Between January until February 2020, takeout food purchases increased 7 percent. In terms of the depth of impact COVID-19 has had across industries, the retail industry saw the steepest fall. The five cities that were most affected in their retail sector were West Jakarta, South Tangerang, Depok, Central Jakarta and Bandung, with the biggest daily earnings decline recorded in West Jakarta, a 32 percent fall in daily earnings per outlet.  In the service industry, the five most impacted cities were Depok, Bekasi, East Jakarta, Batam and Bandung.However, several outlier products have seen a swell in purchases, including masks and hand sanitizer, as people rushed to get their hands on the products in a bid to safeguard themselves against the coronavirus. In February alone, sales of hand sanitizer went up 209 percent, Moka data show. (ydp) Topics : Meanwhile, the service industry saw a noticeable impact in 10 out of the 17 cities, and the retail industry was hit in seven cities, according to the report.Among more than a dozen cities affected, Surabaya in East Java and Bali were the two cities with the biggest fall in daily earnings.The F&B industry in Surabaya plunged 26 percent, meanwhile, Bali experienced a decline of 18 percent, with areas in Greater Jakarta following suit, including Depok, Tangerang, West Jakarta and East Jakarta.“Business players must be able to survive for the next three to six months. There needs to be a temporary change in business processes for the cash flow to remain positive,” Leonard Theosabrata, president director of SMESCO, a government institution responsible for training and facilitating small and medium enterprises, said as quoted in the report. The food and beverage (F&B) industry across cities in Indonesia has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic as people opt to stay in rather than going out for meals, data from a payment gateway show. According to data from PT Moka Teknologi Indonesia, a homegrown startup that provides digital cashier services to more than 30,000 merchants in Indonesia, a number of industries had experienced losses due to the pandemic, including the service and retail industry. But the data revealed that the F&B industry had seen the largest impact. “For the F&B industry, of the 17 cities that were observed, 13 cities experienced a significant decrease in their daily earnings,” the report released on Thursday stated.last_img read more

California shuts down businesses, schools as coronavirus outbreak grows

first_imgThe governor called the move critical to stemming a surge in COVID-19 cases that have strained hospitals in several of California’s rural counties.The public school districts for Los Angeles and San Diego, which instruct a combined 706,000 students and employ 88,000 people, said in a joint statement they would teach only online when school resumes in August, citing “vague and contradictory” science and government guidelines.The districts said countries that have safely reopened schools have done so only after establishing declining infection rates and on-demand coronavirus testing.”California has neither,” the statement said, adding, “The sky-rocketing infection rates of the past few weeks make it clear the pandemic is not under control.” The union representing Los Angeles teachers applauded the strategy in a separate statement released shortly after the school shutdowns were announced.”In the face of the alarming spike in COVID cases, the lack of necessary funding from the government to open schools safely and the outsized threat of death faced by working-class communities of color, there really is no other choice that doesn’t put thousands of lives at risk,” United Teachers Los Angeles said.Brenda Del Hierro, who has two children in Los Angeles schools, said resuming traditional instruction was important but the hazards had to be considered. “For their social and emotional wellbeing they need to go back to school. But at the end of the day there is too much of a risk,” she said.Districts clash with trumpThe decision to cancel in-person classes puts the districts at odds with US President Donald Trump, who has said he might withhold federal funding or remove tax-exempt status from school systems that refuse to reopen. Most education funding comes from state and local governments.Administration officials have said data do not suggest attending school would be dangerous for children because their infection rates are far lower than the population at large.In response to the California districts’ announcement, the White House reiterated that the ideal scenario is for students to go to school. “Hopefully Los Angeles and San Diego can get there soon as well, as that is what is best for children.” spokesman Judd Deer said.Newsom, who has said during the pandemic that it was up to local school districts to determine how best to educate their students, cheered the announcements by Los Angeles and San Diego.But Republicans criticized the governor for failing to issue statewide guidelines for schools during the health crisis.”While he continues to blame Californians for his failure in leadership, his demands to close our small businesses and lack of direction on opening schools will further harm California’s school children and the small businesses that fuel our economy,” Jessica Millan Patterson, chairwoman of the California Republican Party, said in a written statement.California, along with Florida, Arizona and Texas have emerged as the new US epicenters of the pandemic. Infections have risen rapidly in about 40 of the 50 states over the last two weeks, according to a Reuters analysis.Despite nearly 28,000 new COVID-19 cases in the last two days in Florida, Disney World in Orlando welcomed the public on Saturday for the first time since March with guests required to wear masks, undergo temperature checks and keep physically apart. Topics :center_img California’s governor on Monday clamped new restrictions on businesses as coronavirus cases and hospitalizations soared, and the state’s two largest school districts, in Los Angeles and San Diego, said children would be made to stay home in August.Governor Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, ordered bars closed and restaurants, movie theaters, zoos and museums across the nation’s most populous state to cease indoor operations. Gyms, churches and hair salons must close in the 30 hardest-hit counties.”It’s incumbent upon all of us to recognize soberly that COVID-19 is not going away any time soon, until there is a vaccine and/or an effective therapy,” Newsom said at a news briefing.last_img read more

Newcastle’s miserable start to the season continues with defeat to Watford

first_img Head coach Steve McClaren insisted in the run-up to the game that he was not worried by his new-look side’s start to the season despite their tame surrender at West Ham on Monday evening which saw them slip to the foot of the table. By the time he headed to the dressing room at half-time, the alarm bells were only being drowned out by the boos echoing around the stadium. A toxic blend of pitiful defending and powder-puff attacking play allowed Watford to put their energy and commitment to good use as Ighalo and Troy Deeney terrorised Fabricio Coloccini and Chancel Mbemba to leave the Magpies fighting an uphill battle from the off. The visitors were given a helping hand as their good start became a great one when Newcastle full-back Massadio Haidara gifted possession to wide-man Almen Abdi and saw the Hornets capitalise fully as Deeney and Etienne Capoue combined to feed the ball to Ighalo, who stepped inside Janmaat’s lunge before powering a 10th-minute shot into Tim Krul’s bottom corner. Newcastle’s response was tepid to say the least, and Watford increased their lead with 28 minutes gone when Deeney’s through-ball split a static home defence and Ighalo ran through to round the stranded Krul and finish. The Magpies were in dire trouble. They were able to create little with Papiss Cisse appealing for a seventh-minute penalty when he should really have scored amid a goalmouth scramble and Florian Thauvin only just failing to get his head to Moussa Sissoko’s wayward shot. Their final ball was too often weak and aimless with Thauvin in particular a culprit, although it was the Frenchman who forced keeper Heurelho Gomes into his only real save of the half with a well-struck 39th-minute drive. McClaren replaced the ineffectual Cisse with Siem de Jong at the break, pushing Ayoze Perez into the middle after a relatively anonymous opening 45 minutes on the left, but while that gave his side a better shape, they struggled to break down a well-organised Hornets’ defence. The Nigeria international struck on 10 and 28 minutes as he took advantage of some pitiful defending to give the promoted Hornets what proved to be a decisive lead. Daryl Janmaat reduced the deficit with a 67th-minute strike, the Magpies’ first goal in 464 minutes of Barclays Premier League football, but it was not enough to rescue a point as they await their first win of the new campaign. Watford’s Odion Ighalo piled the pressure on sorry Newcastle as his first-half double paved the way for a 2-1 victory at St James’ Park. But they gave themselves a chance with 28 minutes remaining when Janmaat ran on to Thauvin’s ball and exchanged passes with Sissoko before rifling the ball inside the far post. It took a last-ditch tackle by Chancel Mbemba to deny Deeney three minutes later, and Gomes had to throw himself full-length to keep out Janmaat’s 67th-minute piledriver, although there was to be no salvation for the home side. TWEET OF THE MATCH “#NUFC awful AGAIN. Charlie Austin looks cheap at £15 million now!” – Alan Shearer doesn’t mince his words about Newcastle. PLAYER RATINGS Newcastle Tim Krul: 5 (out of 10) Daryl Janmaat: 7 Chancel Mbemba: 6 Fabricio Coloccini (Capt): 4 Massadio Haidara (Aarons, 80 mins): 5 Jack Colback: 6 Moussa Sissoko: 6 Georginio Wijnaldum: 6 Florian Thauvin (Obertan, 87 mins): 6 Papiss Cisse (De Jong, 46 mins): 5 Ayoze Perez: 5 Subs Siem de Jong: 5 Rolando Aarons: 6 Gabriel Obertan: 5 Watford Heurelho Gomes: 7 Allan Nyom: 6 Sebastian Prodl: 7 Craig Cathcart: 7 Ikechi Anya: 6 Etienne Capoue: 7 Ben Watson (Guedioura, 87 mins): 6 Almen Abdi (Berghuis, 76 mins): 7 Troy Deeney (Capt): 7 Jose Manuel Juardo (Ake, 80 mins): 7 Odio Ighalo: 8 Subs Steven Berghuis: 6 Nathan Ake: 6 Adlene Guedioura: 6 STAR PLAYER Odio Ighalo gave Newcastle skipper Fabricio Coloccini a torrid afternoon and was good value for his double. MOMENT OF THE MATCH Ighalo’s cool 28th-minute finish as he accepted Troy Deeney’s pass and rounded Tim Krul to make it 2-0. VIEW FROM THE BENCH Quique Sanchez Flores will have been delighted with his team’s potency in attack, where Ighalo and Deeney were a handful throughout, and its organisation at the back. Opposite number Steve McClaren was left to reflect upon a wasted first half which left his team too much to do. MOAN OF THE MATCH Newcastle’s capacity to waste promising positions with insipid delivery from wide areas.

ONE DOWN: Syracuse overcomes early deficit, woes at faceoff X to beat Bryant in first round of NCAA tournament

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Related Stories Deep Syracuse attack proves overwhelming for Bryant in second halfMassa dominates faceoff X for BryantLamolinara shakes off early mistakes to shut out Bryant in 4th quarterConroy, Palasek suspensions to continue after violation of team rules In warm-ups, Bryant players wore shirts that asked a simple question on the back: “Why not us?”And as Syracuse fell to an early four-goal deficit midway through the first quarter, the scoreboard asked the same question. Bryant’s Kevin Massa dominated the faceoff X as SU had barely touched the ball. The visiting fans that had poured into the Carrier Dome bleachers chanting “I believe that we will win,” had every reason to believe as much, until late in the opening frame.That’s when SU’s defense kicked in. It pressured the Bryant attackers as far as 30 yards from goal and badgered the dodgers with checks at every turn. Altered shots sailed wide. Open ones did too. Faceoff victories were wasted and simple entry passes flew out of bounds.The answer to Bryant’s question became simple: too many turnovers.“You can’t turn the ball over to these guys like we did, just give it away,” BU head coach Mike Pressler said. “We had a couple ones where we just absolutely didn’t take care of it.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAnd so a stinging SU (14-3) defense masked over Massa’s ownership of the faceoff X as the Orange unlocked the Bryant (8-11) zone and made the Bulldogs’ 21 extra possessions irrelevant as it regrouped for a 12-7 NCAA tournament first-round win in front of 2,826 in the Carrier Dome on Sunday night. Syracuse advances to play Yale in a quarterfinal matchup on Saturday at 3 p.m. in College Park, Md.Halfway through the first quarter, SU worked into its second settled possession of the game. Matt Harris had just taken the Orange’s only faceoff win of the night when Luke Cometti wheeled away from Bo Redpath to jump and rip a bouncing shot from the right hashes. Syracuse had held the ball for no more than a minute total.But Cometti’s shot bounced in for SU’s first goal. Bryant still led 4-1, but the play foreshadowed plenty. Syracuse still starved for possessions from the X, but compensated on defense and buried the looks it got on the other end.“We knew we were going to get our shots off if we were patient offensively,” SU head coach John Desko said.Bryant’s zone piled onto SU’s patience test. The narrow, shifting block of six players blocked out inside passing lanes. Long-stick midfielder Mason Poli defended the point, leaving the Orange to the wings and back corners of the zone.And there, eventually, SU cut it open.With about a minute to play in the first half, Henry Schoonmaker forced an open-field turnover on Colin Dunster and bolted across midfield.With 12 seconds to go, Kevin Rice was stranded behind the cage. His teammates in front of goal were locked down as Dylan Donahue bolted down to the right goal line, giving Rice an outlet. Donahue dished to Billy Ward up the right wing away from goal. And as the BU zone came out to defend Ward, he fired back down for Donahue to finish from a nearly parallel angle. SU surged into halftime with all the momentum, tied 5-5. Bryant’s lead was gone for good.“We tried to overload a side,” Rice said. “We ended up getting them rotating, which opened up some of those shots.”Cometti hardly caught the ball as he batted in his second goal to give SU a 6-5 lead 2:06 into the third quarter. And Bryant barely had the ball when Massa again turned Harris with ease to win another draw. Seconds later it was in Brian Megill’s stick and SU was breaking into attack mode.As the Bulldogs scrambled to fight back against an Orange team returning to its defense-dissecting form, the “I believe” chants grew slower, shorter and quieter and the turnovers multiplied. BU had 10 in the second half. SU had seven in the whole game.“It was just lack of execution,” Bryant attack Peter McMahon said.So when the BU fans rose to their feet with 30 seconds remaining to chant “Bry-ant Bull-dogs” it was not in celebration – it was a eulogy for their season. The ball was in an SU attack’s stick, and unlike those of Bryant’s, the ball would not come out.It’s why Syracuse advances to play Yale in the quarterfinals. And why Bryant’s season ends.“We’ve gotten down a couple times early in the first quarter in games, and kind of always prevailed,” Harris said. “Coach either calls a timeout in the past, or we make adjustments and we kind of always come out on top.” Commentscenter_img Published on May 12, 2013 at 9:55 pm Contact Jacob: jmklinge@syr.edu | @Jacob_Klinger_last_img read more

3 takeaways from No. 17 Syracuse’s 81-64 loss to No. 1 Oregon

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 24, 2019 at 6:09 pm Contact Danny: dremerma@syr.edu | @DannyEmerman No. 17 Syracuse (3-1) trailed No. 1 Oregon (4-0) by only one point at halftime. But the Ducks pulled away in the third quarter behind a barrage of 3-pointers in the third quarter. Oregon outscored the Orange 31-16 in the third quarter, going 5-for-10 from deep, while the Orange’s press was ineffective, and often resulted in easy layups or open shots for Oregon in transition. Here are three takeaways from Syracuse’s 81-64 loss to Oregon. Ionescu takes overBefore Sunday’s game, Emily Engstler called Oregon senior Sabrina Ionescu a “special player,” and Kiara Lewis said she “can do everything.” The point guard entered Sunday’s game averaging a triple double and is one of the best players in the nation.On Sunday, it took the reigning Wooden Award winner nearly 15 minutes to record her first points. She only had five points going into halftime. Still, Ionescu heated up in the second half, sparking an offensive clinic. Oregon used the all-time NCAA leader in triple doubles both on the wing and in the middle of SU’s 2-3 zone. When she was in the middle, Syracuse often denied her from getting an entry pass. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWhen Syracuse switched to man-to-man late in the fourth quarter, Ionescu recognized that she had a mismatch. With Maeva Djaldi-Tabdi switched onto her on the perimeter, she drove into a midrange jumper. A catch-and-shoot 3 later in the fourth put the Ducks up 20. Two minutes later, she did the same, catching Digna Strautmane off-guard before pulling up for a contested long ball. In the end, Ionescu recorded a season-high five turnovers, but still flirted with a triple double. She finished with 19 points, nine of which came in the fourth. Glass cleanerFor Syracuse’s first three games, the Orange enjoyed a significant size advantage. Against Ohio, for instance, SU had the three tallest players on the court for almost the entire game. But against the Ducks, that flipped. Oregon has four players above 6-foot-4, while SU has none. Oregon punished the Orange on the offensive boards, hauling in 16, leading to 18 second chance points. Late in the third quarter, Satou Sabally rebounded her own free throw miss and kicked it out to Ionescu, who nailed a buzzer-beating 3-pointer. Overall, Oregon out-rebounded SU 47-36, with Ruthy Hebard leading the way with 13. Letting it flySyracuse made this game a 3-point contest. At one point in the first half, Syracuse had attempted 20 3-pointers and just six shots from inside the arc. Overall, the Orange launched 35 treys, slightly above their average of 29.7 attempts per game. When Syracuse fell behind to start the second half, 3-pointers from Lewis and Strautmane brought them back, tying the game at 38. Maeva Djaldi-Tabdi, who attempted two 3-pointers in the first three games of the year, jacked three in the first half alone. She finished 2-for-5 from behind the arc. Engstler also went 2-for-5, and Lewis finished 4-for-11. As for the Ducks, they were up to the challenge. Oregon went 11-for-30 from deep and forward Erin Boley nailed five on her own.  Commentslast_img read more
