Been a goat from his time at United and Arsenal— Zaid🃏 (@AfcZaidd) July 7, 2020center_img Danny Welbeck may have just saved Watford from being relegated from the Premier League, and what a way to do it.Facing Norwich in a relegation six-pointer, Watford desperately needed the win to put some space between themselves and the bottom three.Emiliano Buendia’s great effort had put Norwich, who now face relegation on Saturday, in front in the fourth minute.However, Craig Dawson levelled for Watford with a header six minutes later with the scores remaining level until half-time.In the second half, up stepped former Man Utd and Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck, literally, to fire home the winner for Watford.Ismaila Sarr’s cross was deflected into the air and Welbeck, who had not scored a Premier League goal for Watford before this, fired it into the top corner with an overhead kick.His teammates were as stunned as he was and on social media, the reaction was similar.Watford are now four points clear of the relegation zone with the win.Check out Welbeck’s goal and the reactions on social media belowWhat a goal!!

A UFC 234 loss should mark end of Anderson Silva’s career

first_img“I don’t think about that,” Silva told Sporting News during a recent interview when asked if he would retire if he loses to Adesanya. “I have plenty of more fights. I’m happy.”MORE: Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a year From a stretch that lasted from April 2006 to October 2012, Silva was unstoppable. He won 17 consecutive fights — 15 of those via stoppage — made 10 consecutive defenses of the middleweight title he won at UFC 64, took three fights at light heavyweight and defeated the likes of former champions Rich Franklin (twice), Vitor Belfort, Dan Henderson and Nate Marquardt. But everything came crashing down after he beat Stephan Bonner at UFC 153. Silva has gone 1-4, with one no-contest, including losing the middleweight belt in a devastating knockout to Chris Weidman at UFC 162 and then dropping the subsequent rematch at UFC 168, when he suffered one of the most gruesome injuries as a leg kick snapped Silva’s leg like a pretzel and kept him out of action for 13 months. Sandwiched between all of that are two failed drug tests, though the latest one in 2017 was deemed to be from a tainted supplement according to the United States Anti-Doping Agency. When SN asked Silva later in the interview about how much longer he wants to fight, regardless of the result at UFC 234, and if he planned to be like former UFC two-division world champion Randy Couture and fight deeper into his 40s, the Brazilian was dismissive. No one likes hearing their working career is coming to a close, especially when Silva has meant so much to the sport and given us highlights galore. Who doesn’t remember when Silva threw the most beautiful kick you will ever see when he nearly knocked Belfort’s head off his shoulders at UFC 126? Or Silva moving like Bruce Lee in his fight with Forrest Griffin at UFC 101? Those are the things you want to remember and have engrained in your memory for years to come. Who wants to talk about Silva getting a lackluster decision win over a fringe contender in Derek Brunson or getting tossed around like a rag doll by Daniel Cormier in a losing effort at UFC 200? At 43, Anderson Silva’s time in the Octagon is winding down.Arguably the greatest MMA fighter ever, Silva returns after a two-year layoff when he takes on rising star Israel Adesanya in the co-main event of Saturday’s UFC 234 in Melbourne, Australia. If Silva wins, then he gets one more shot to reclaim the title he put on the map, as he’ll take on the winner of the UFC 234 main event pitting middleweight champion Robert Whittaker against Kelvin Gastelum. A loss, though, should signify the end of Silva’s career. But the Brazilian isn’t trying to hear any of that. According to sportsbookreview.com, Silva is a significant underdog against Adesanya, coming in at +435. This is Anderson Silva we are talking about — not some nobody who is opening the show. Whether he wants to admit it or not, the clock is ticking for him. If Adesanya does what many expect him to at UFC 234 and delivers the type of punishment that Silva used to dole out to one foe after another in his prime, then hopefully Silva gets the message and drops his gloves in the Octagon to signify he’s retiring.After all, there’s nothing else for Silva to prove. He has given his blood, sweat and tears and provided us with many memories. Silva has to realize he is in a losing battle with an undefeated Father Time.last_img read more

How dare someone think there should be water for people! The nerve. Put your address if this upsets you and we can start with unregulated pesticides on your property. And you only get well water now.

Just hearing one side of the story and not understanding the entire concept can skew things.

Like special elections in wellington for special interests to ramrod things into law before a beleaguered public really grasps the full pain to come. Report Reply +3 Vote up Vote down Wes Smith · 319 weeks ago Anonymous, here is how I judge someones opinion on an issue. If they can tell me what “good” and “bad” can come from proposed legislation then I feel they have studied and understood the issue at hand to form an opinion. If all I hear is the negative then to me there is bias involved and your trying to influence the matter at hand without giving all the facts. Granted that in most cases you will not get that kind of information from an individual but it would be nice to have that perspective.

We need to stop this. You will lose all control on your own land!. And if you did want to do anything it would take months top get the permits back. And then they could decide not to let you do anything on your own land! This has nothing to do with drinking water as much as the govt just wanting to dictate procedure to you on your own Land!

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments To the Editor,The Sumner County Farm Bureau wants our fellow Kansans to know the Environmental Protection Agency is attempting an unprecedented federal land grab that will hurt Kansas businesses and damage our fragile state economy.The EPA has proposed a rule that would allow it and the Army Corps of Engineers to use the federal Clean Water Act to dictate how landowners use their land.  Currently, the Clean Water Act only applies to “navigable” waters.  That is how Congress wrote it, and that is how the Supreme Court has said it should be in two different rulings.  The proposed rule oversteps that boundary.The proposal says most bodies of water that run into a river or lake would be under the EPA’s power. This includes farm ditches, flood control levees or golf course ponds. It even includes low spots that only hold water after it rains. The EPA doesn’t care if those small bodies of water are on private property. It still wants to regulate them.Home builders, developers, country clubs and farmers would have to get a permit before working around these “waters”, even if it was just a few days out of the year. If no permit was granted, they could be fined more than $37,000 per day for simple tasks like putting up a fence, spraying for weeds, moving dirt, building a terrace, grazing cattle on pasture, etc. Fines like that would drive any small company – the backbone of our Kansas economy – out of business.Cities and counties would have to change their watershed and storm water management plans to suit the proposal. They’d have to get permits to treat wastewater and might have to get additional pesticide permits. The costs of those permits and complying with complex requirements would be passed on to the rest of us.We can stop this proposal before it’s finalized, but we must act soon.The proposal’s federal docket I.D. is EPA–HQ– OW–2011–0880.
