Indianapolis, In. — Farmers and agricultural producers in Indiana have new online options to access U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) programs. Through USDA’s new streamlined process producers can now register, track and manage their applications for the Market Facilitation Program (MFP) and 2017 Wildfires Hurricanes Indemnity Program (2017 WHIP) on the secure and convenient https://www.farmers.gov/sign-in.“You can conduct business with USDA from the comfort of your home, office, or mobile device,” said Steven Brown, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) State Executive Director for Indiana. “These online services save time, reduce paperwork and, in some cases, speed up processing.”MFP and 2017 WHIP are administered by FSA and are currently available on the https://www.farmers.gov/sign-in. To apply and manage their applications online, producers first need to sign up for the Level 2 eAuthentication access. Enrolling is a two-step process. Producers who do not already have an account can register for an account at www.eauth.usda.gov. After creating the account, customers receive a confirmation email with instructions for identity verification. Identity verification can be completed online or by presenting a government issued photo ID in person at a USDA service center.In addition to the programs available through the farmers.gov portal, other programs offered by FSA can be managed at the Online Services page with the same eAuthentication credentials.“We know doing business online has become a key part of many agricultural operations and hope our online services can provide the ease and convenience you’ve come to expect,” said Brown.Individual producers have many options available for conducting business online with USDA agencies including FSA, Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the Risk Management Agency (RMA). Online tools such as the NRCS Conservation Client Gateway offer customers added flexibility and a secure web portal to track payments, report completed practices, request assistance, and sign documents. Level 2 eAuthentication access is not yet available for entities, but it is available for individuals.
Andy Reid, Kevin Doyle and Rob Elliot have withdrawn from the Ireland squad for this week’s friendly against Serbia. Press Association Nottingham Forest midfielder Reid underwent hernia surgery on Friday and is expected to be ruled out for up to six weeks. QPR striker Doyle has a thigh injury which will keep him out of the clash at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium on Wednesday, while Newcastle goalkeeper Elliot has a knee problem. The Football Association of Ireland revealed the news on Twitter and Republic boss Martin O’Neill has not called up any replacements for the trio.
Press Association Boaz Myhill has signed a new two-year contract with West Brom. The goalkeeper has committed his future to the Baggies until 2017 with the 32-year-old set to start the season as the club’s first choice. He said: “It’s great to get my future sorted out. It’s never easy being a goalkeeper when you’re not in the team but the Premier League is the place you want to be.” He added: “I enjoyed the final few months of the season and tried to do my best during that period. “Pre-season has been tough but now we are beginning to focus on making sure we are ready for that opening game of the season.” Myhill is deputising for the injured Ben Foster after the England keeper suffered cruciate knee ligament damage in March. The Wales international helped keep the club in the Barclays Premier League last season and has made 53 appearances for the Baggies since joining from Hull in 2010. Head coach Tony Pulis said: “I’m delighted Boaz has signed his new deal. “He had a smashing end to the season when he came into the side and has worked very hard throughout the summer.” Myhill is set to start the season as the club’s number one despite Pulis hunting a new keeper. The boss is interested in Crystal Palace’s Wayne Hennessey, who worked under him at Selhurst Park, but the Baggies are yet to make an official move. Meanwhile, Pulis wants to bring former Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby to The Hawthorns after he was released by the Gunners. The France international left the Emirates after an injury-plagued spell since joining from Auxerre in 2006. Diaby made 182 appearances for the north London club, scoring 19 goals, but has played just twice in the last two seasons.
Press Association Arsene Wenger has rejected claims from Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho that Arsenal have abandoned their cautious transfer approach. Wenger responded by insisting Arsenal spend within their means, and will not fret too much about outside opinions. “We spend when we think we have to spend and do not listen too much to what people think or say,” said Wenger. “We just try to make the right decisions. When we have the money available, we spend it. When we don’t have the money, we don’t spend the money we haven’t got.” Arsenal have spent almost £150million since the summer of 2013, breaking their transfer record for Mesut Ozil and signing Petr Cech from Chelsea last month. Chelsea’s own investment in that time amounts to almost £235million. Mourinho dropped heavy hints in his comments that Arsenal are title contenders simply because of their two-year spending spree. Wenger threw out that notion, however, claiming Arsenal still lead the way on producing home-grown talent. “I believe that one day if you make real statistics of the players we have developed here and compare them to the other clubs, you will be surprised,” said Wenger. “I think what you want is not to listen too much to what people say, because sometimes in the same week I get two different reproaches: one I don’t spend enough and one too much. “I believe if you want to create success, which we want desperately, is to focus on inside and try to do as well as we can, believe in the football we want to play, play it as well as we can and let other people talk.” Wenger refused to rule out further signings before the start of the new Premier League campaign – but scotched suggestions Calum Chambers could return to former club Southampton on loan. “They didn’t try to get him back on loan and I will not consider it. Not at the moment,” Wenger said. “I want to develop him as a centre-back and at the moment we have just the right number. He will get games here.” Wenger must hatch a plan to stop Eden Hazard this weekend, fresh from Mourinho branding the Belgian playmaker as better than Cristiano Ronaldo on last season’s evidence. Admitting Arsenal were “a few millions” away from signing Hazard when he joined Chelsea in 2012, Wenger believes the 24-year-old still trails behind the likes of Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. “He can decide the games and you put the top players in this kind of calibre when they can decide the games with something special,” said Wenger of Hazard. “Hazard is in this category: now to reach the other two or three that are dominating world football at the moment I think it demands consistency which he is still to do. “It is all about opinions, you have to compare the numbers. I must say players like Messi and Ronaldo still score 50 goals and that is exceptional.” Former Chelsea stalwart Cech will face his old club for the first time this weekend at Wembley, with Wenger backing the 33-year-old shot-stopper to add steel to Arsenal’s defence. “He can improve the level of communication at the back and bring his experience to the defenders and bring a calmness to defenders in some heated situations into our team,” said Wenger. “On both fronts communication of course is in a different class and as well I think his calmness will be vital. It is important you are calm. “I believe that Petr Cech was already at the top but I believe that you can never deny that you can improve. “From his experience, he will still improve. “He’s at the stage of his career, between 33 and 37, where a goalkeeper can be at his peak and he has the desire. “As long as you have the right attitude, you can always improve in life. “I don’t think it’s down to different training methods, it’s just down to him to keep at the top physically and with his experience he will always improve.” Chelsea manager Mourinho has suggested totting up Arsenal’s spending in the last two years leads to a “surprise”, resuming his sparring with Gunners boss Wenger. Mourinho has labelled Arsenal as genuine contenders for this year’s Premier League title, before the two teams clash in the Community Shield on Sunday.

Published on April 27, 2014 at 7:58 pm Contact Josh: firstname.lastname@example.org CHESTER, Pa. — Notre Dame attack Matt Kavanagh began Sunday’s Atlantic Coast Conference championship on the bench after missing the team bus to PPL Park.Kavanagh ended his day with a team-high four goals and two assists in No. 9 Notre Dame’s (8-5, 2-3 ACC) 15-14 ACC championship victory against No. 4 Syracuse (10-4, 2-3 ACC) in front of 4,552 in Chester, Pa. With the game tied at eight midway through the third quarter, he scored two goals and assisted on another to extend the Irish lead to 11-8.“Notre Dame did a good job of using some picks and utilizing some matchups to get Kavanagh open,” Syracuse defender Brandon Mullins said.Almost a month ago to the day, the Orange beat Notre Dame 9-8 in the Carrier Dome and held Kavanagh to no goals and two assists. Mullins shadowed Kavanagh that day, and spearheaded the defensive performance that SU head coach John Desko called the team’s best to that point.On Sunday, Notre Dame used a series of pick-and-rolls to free Kavanagh of Mullins.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textOn Kavanagh’s goal that extended UND’s lead to 10-8, Irish attack Westy Hopkins set a pick on Mullins, opening a free lane to the net. SU defender Tom Grimm was a step late and Kavanagh put a shot underneath Bobby Wardwell.Forty-eight seconds later, Kavanagh fed Jim Marlett in the slot. Marlett turned around and fired a no-look shot past Wardwell.“I think in the first game I wasn’t really recognizing the second slide coming from behind,” Kavanagh said. “I was really aware today of just moving the ball, not really holding on to it and picking my spots when it was a good time to go.“We had a really good two-man game with the short sticks, so I guess he kind of got confused on some. So I just tried to attack in some good situations.”But for Mullins, it wasn’t about letting one guy get the best of him.“We can’t keep giving up 15 goals a game and just expect our offense to bail us out in the last second every time,” Mullins said.
