Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has suffered yet another injury setback, casting further doubt on his career with the Reds.The injury-plagued 26-year-old has only just returned from a knee injury and has made just three appearances since Jurgen Klopp took over as manager in October.Last month Klopp said Sturridge had to understand the difference between “pain and real pain” as he prepared to make his comeback.The German – pictured preparing with his Liverpool squad for Thursday’s Europa League match away to Sion – will now be planning for the busy Christmas period without Sturridge, and could now be planning for a long-term future without the England striker.SICKNOTE STURRIDGE IS A LUXURY LIVERPOOL ‘CAN’T AFFORD’, ISTANBUL CHAMPIONS LEAGUE HERO TELLS TALKSPORT 6.

Boom time for African media

Boom time for African media

first_imgTamara O’ReillyResearch into Africa’s media landscape has shown that new technology and innovative thinking have allowed the continent’s broadcasters to attract larger and more diverse audiences than ever.Of the 17 different markets surveyed by Balancing Act and Intermedia, key findings were that there has been an explosion in the number of radio stations, the volume of advertising has increased and free-to-air (FTA) TV channels in countries such as Kenya and Tanzania attract the bulk of viewers and advertisers in those countries.The countries surveyed were Algeria, Angola, Burundi, Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania, Togo, Tunisia, Uganda and Zimbabwe.Indigenous radio flourishingA number of radio stations, specifically those broadcasting in local languages, have mushroomed across Africa.One such example is Uganda, where there are now over 150 radio stations, with 69% of them catering for audiences in 38 different languages. While both television and radio are distributed in developed cities, radio is the dominant medium in rural areas, which suggests that there is a direct correlation between electricity and television ownership.Radio is so popular that it’s listened to in cars, in public transport, shops and homes, and in countries where deregulation of the media has occurred, several radio channels have emerged in a short space of time.According to the report, overall advertising spend on television has increased slightly in some countries and declined in others. It was also found that where the state-owned broadcaster competes in an environment with four to five other FTA TV channels, it becomes the least popular broadcaster or stays just ahead of the last FTA entrant.State interference in the media is still prevalent across the continent, whether it be content dictated by the government, journalists being pressured to censor their work or broadcasters being owned by ruling parties. In cases where content is controlled by government, audiences were found to be less trusting of the news than they would be otherwise.The growth of radio and TV ownership varies for each country, but it was found that in countries where economic growth is above the global average, ownership of radio and televisions sets increases by 17% a year.As more and more Africans move to other countries within the continent, broadcasters are also keen to provide them with content from back home. Although this is usually done via satellite, accessing television via the internet seems to be the preferred method among youngsters not living in their native country.Despite the fact that cellular phones are more accessible than the internet, television using this device has been slow to catch on, as the technology needed for this has not yet been supported by many cellular service providers.Related articlesThe media in South AfricaTelevision in South Africa Radio in South AfricaUseful linksIntermediaMultichoiceDStvlast_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, September 17, 2018

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, September 17, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest  The remains of Hurricane Florence are working northward today, and will bring rain to about 60% of Ohio. We expect rain totals to run anywhere from a few hundredths to perhaps 1.25″ or more, depending on where thunderstorms and longer term rain streaks develop. Right now, we think the best chances for thunderstorms will be far south near the Ohio River, ,and then in east central OH into western PA. The upper end of the rain range will be over southern OH and the eastern third. There is a good chance we see nothing but clouds farther west in west central OH, and even a mix of clouds and sun in NW Ohio…so today’s weather spread may be all over the place, thanks to the remains of Florence. Temperatures do remain warmer than normal today, even with the rain. South flow will be key to keeping temps warm. The map at right shows potential for today’s rain.Drier weather is back for tomorrow, and we should stay dry for Wednesday and Thursday as well. The front we had been watching last week for midweek on Wednesday late afternoon has completely fallen apart down this way, and moisture looks to stay farther north, across WI, northern IL and into MI. But, even though we are taking moisture out at midweek, we are going to have to pay for it later. That payment comes due starting early Friday.Three waves of moisture will move over the state from Friday through Sunday, one for each day period. The first wave his for Friday, and goes into the evening, then another batch of moisture comes Saturday and a final batch Sunday. Combined, all three systems bring potential for half to 1.5” rains over about 90% of the state. We think a few areas see all three waves, but most areas see at least two of the three hitting over the 3-day period. This will bring a slowdown to harvest field work.Dry weather is back for next Monday through Wednesday. Temps will be a bit cooler behind the weekend rains but will stay mostly near normal for the period. Then, we kick off the extended 11-16 day window with a strong front for next Thursday and Friday, the 27th and 28th. This front brings half to 1.5” inch rain potential to a full 100% of the state. This front also ushers in much cooler Canadian high pressure out of the west. We expect temps to move to below normal levels to finish out the extended period, while dry weather finishes out the month and kicks off October. For the 29th and 30th, we think it wise to be on the look out for temps bottoming out near 40 degrees, and we won’t rule out a few upper 30s. A map of potential morning lows for the 30th is at right. However, keep in mind that there is plenty of time for that to change, though. Just putting it out there this morning.last_img read more
