RWC 2015: Scotland squad talking points

first_imgGrit and desire: After impressing at the Scarlets, John Barclay fully deserves his call-up after two yearsAlso back in the fold and chasing a third tournament are Chris Cusiter and Jim Hamilton, part of a group who can provide valuable advice to their younger colleagues experiencing it for the first time. We know the young backs can play, but as we saw in the Six Nations, mental stability is often the issue. Even if the old hands only stick around for the initial camp, the experience they bring could be invaluable.The InjuriesOr as we like to refer to it in Scotland as ‘the midfield’. Centre has gone from a position of strength to something that will add worry lines to the brow of Coter, with Alex Dunbar, Matt Scott and Mark Bennett all on the physios couch.Richie Vernon impressed with his pace as a back row in Invercargill in 2011 and returns this time as a centre. He is sufficiently impressive (and versatile) to expect he’ll give Saracens’ Duncan Taylor a run for his money if Cotter wants a bash-up centre. Worryingly Pete Horne remains the only midfield conjuror, unless the medical team can work some magic of their own.Form of his life: Finn Russell has finished the season brilliantly (Pic Inpho)Large chunks of the second row contingent are also on the way back from injury and short of match fitness, as are two thirds of the fly-halves. Ruaridh Jackson and Duncan Weir aim to challenge Finn Russell, but following approximately 86 minutes of brilliance across the last two Glasgow games, he is the first name on the team sheet now.Before the tournament the squad will be trimmed to 31, but with many differing reports on who will be ready in time for either the warm up tests in August or the tournament in September – allegedly they all will be – the exact makeup of that group is hard to guess. Man with a plan: Vern Cotter has a summer to get the best out of the Scotland squad On Tuesday Vern Cotter rolled out his ‘long list’ of 46 players to deliver the undeliverable: the oft-mocked SRU aim of Scotland winning the Rugby World Cup. An extensive and no doubt, intense, training camp – a spell in the clouds at altitude in France and then two months grunt in Scotland. It will represent the longest continuous period Cotter will have with the squad since taking the reins.Now is his chance to really put his imprint down on his squad; could we see a quite different Scotland come the autumn?Go-forward: Josh Strauss adds considerable muscle to the back-rowThe Foreign LegionThere is talk of foreign imports whenever a Scotland squad is announced these days. Hugh Blake – object of controversy from the Six Nations – survives, or should I say returns, despite having had no more game time at Glasgow than he did at Edinburgh, save a cameo at the Melrose Sevens. Blake is already qualified, through no fault of his own, but faces criticism for having done little (yet) to merit the call-up.Scotland fans welcome the inclusion of the first two “project players” a little more pragmatically, as Josh Strauss and WP Nel have performed regularly and well for their clubs. Even if Strauss won’t be eligible to don the navy blue until the tournament proper, his consistent ability to make ground with the ball would see him walk into most people’s Scotland XVs and Nel should fit the tighthead spot left by the retiring Euan Murray nicely. That is, assuming he can get past Mike Cusack, a hard-scrummaging Yorkshireman who has also qualified on residency.Missed the cut: Kelly Brown was one of the big-name absenteesThe AbsenteesThere are a good group of names left out: Johnnie Beattie, Ben Toolis, Kelly Brown, Chris Fusaro, Geoff Cross and Edinburgh favourite Roddy Grant. Beattie and Brown have apparently been left out due to lack of form, Grant for a perceived lack of versatility. Grant has played 6, 7 and 8 for Edinburgh, but perhaps like Fusaro he suffers from misplaced worries about his size – both are 5’11” but in mitigation, tackle like demons. The exclusion of both outrages some fans especially when “form” is used to exclude some players but others get a pass, but, we know Cotter likes his opensides beefy.The Old DogsWhich leads us to the return of John Barclay, the Scarlets Management Player of the Season. Despite featuring mostly at No 8 when we need him as a 7, many Scotland fans are just glad to see him back in a squad for the first time since 2013. His versatility gives him a good chance for a long campaign like the World Cup, but expect a tussle with Blair Cowan for that openside shirt. Realistically he may be more valuable off the bench and for his experience – this would be his third World Cup. At 28, he’s never wholly fulfilled his early potential at test level, but I wouldn’t bet against a late renaissance now he’s been given another chance LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Vern Cotter has brought in the muscle for the Scotland squad in a period where he hopes to shape Scotland into a team able to surprise a few people… Guinness PRO12 winners Glasgow provide 22 of the 46 places, and you wouldn’t bet on that extra confidence ensuring plenty representation when the World Cup rolls around in September.last_img read more

Three distinguished leaders will receive the honorary degree: the Rt. Rev. Santosh K. Marray, A. Gary Shilling, and the Rev. Becca Stevens.“We are delighted to be honoring these great disciples of Christ whose witness and wisdom inspire the entire General Seminary community, students, faculty, trustees and alumni,” states the Rev. Timothy A. Boggs, Chair of the Honorary Doctorate Committee.The Very Rev. Kurt H. Dunkle, Dean and President, adds, “These three candidates represent the great strengths of The Episcopal Church, and we are proud to honor them at General Seminary. From life-long lay service to holy activism to broad Anglican Communion leadership, the achievements we are honoring are emblematic of the diversity of accomplishment in our church and at General. I suspect Jesus is proud!”The Rt. Rev. Santosh K. Marray, Assistant Bishop of the Diocese of Alabama, has also served five other dioceses, Guyana, The Bahamas, Florida, Seychelles and East Carolina; and three provinces of the Anglican Communion, the West Indies, The Episcopal Church, and the Indian Ocean. Prior to his call to be the Assistant Bishop of Alabama, he served as Bishop Assisting in the Diocese of East Carolina. Marray’s first episcopate was as Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Seychelles, Province of the Indian Ocean. He was elected to the position in February 2005 while serving as Rector of St. Philip’s Episcopal Church, Jacksonville, Florida.During his time as Bishop of the Seychelles, the diocese witnessed significant restoration of several diocesan buildings; renewal in its spiritual life, mission, ministry and witness to the community; lay and clergy empowerment; and strengthening of its financial sustainability. It effectively became a healthier and more viable church; including advocating in the province for the ordination of women to the priesthood. Marray was the first bishop to ordain a woman to the priesthood in the Province of the Indian Ocean. He describes his ministry in the Seychelles as a call from God he could not resist, especially if he were to remain faithful to his vows and love for Jesus and his Church. As Bishop of Seychelles, he gained the respect, trust and confidence of many in the nation, including government leaders—as a bridge builder and reconciler.In pastoral ministry, Marray has served in nearly every possible parochial setting, including rural multi-church parishes; urban, inner city, suburban settings; and in the hinterland in Guyana. He has witnessed the revival and growth of many struggling congregations, restored and/or built several parish edifices, and led a number of successful capital campaigns. He is a strong advocate for the gospel of reconciliation, and God’s love and salvation for all persons. Marray has travelled extensively across the Anglican Communion in mission and ministry, and his work in community service, social outreach, and justice extend across many countries and communities. He has the distinction of being the first West Indian of East Indian ancestry to be elected and consecrated bishop in the Anglican Communion, and to serve as bishop in both the eastern and western hemispheres.Marray holds a Diploma in Pastoral Studies and a B.A. in Theology, magna cum laude, from Codrington Theological College and University of the West Indies, Barbados; an S.T.M. in Christian Spirituality from The General Theological Seminary; a Master of Law in Canon Law at the University of Wales; a Doctor of Ministry from Colgate Rochester Divinity/Bexley Hall Episcopal Seminary, Rochester, New York. In 2008, he was awarded a Doctor of Divinity from Bexley Hall Seminary, Ohio, for work in church growth and renewal and his involvement in the wider Anglican Communion.A. Gary Shilling is an economist and columnist for Forbes Magazine. He has been an enthusiastic and generous supporter of General Seminary and is a consummate lay Episcopal leader. He is a past member of the General Seminary Board of Trustees and is Founder and Chair of the Board of the Episcopal Preaching Foundation (EPF) which actively seeks opportunities to partner with Episcopal dioceses to plan, staff, and conduct preaching conferences for priests, deacons, and lay preachers at the local and regional level. EPF sponsors the annual Preaching Excellence Program (PEP) where deans and homiletics professors from the Episcopal seminaries, as well as other institutions, prepare students for Episcopal ordination and select 50 to 60 seminarians who show promise in preaching. These seminarians spend an all-expense-paid week honing their preaching skills, led by four or five homiletics professors, an equal number of skilled parish preachers, a faculty dean, and well-known guest lecturers.Shilling has written several well-received books on economic development and investment strategies and has drawn praise for his sometimes-contrarian economic forecasts. He holds a master’s degree and a Ph.D. in Economics from Stanford University and is the president of the A. Gary Shilling Co. In May 2009, Shilling received an honorary Doctor of Canon Law degree from Sewanee in recognition of his efforts as an Episcopal layman.The Rev. Becca Stevens is an Episcopal priest, author, speaker, and social entrepreneur. In all of her work, she proclaims love as the most powerful force for social change. She currently serves as Chaplain at St. Augustine’s Chapel at Vanderbilt University, and is the founder of Magdalene—residential communities of women who have survived prostitution, trafficking and addiction. In 2001, Stevens founded Thistle Farms, which employs nearly 50 Magdalene residents and graduates, as well as housing a natural body care line, a paper and sewing studio, and the Thistle Stop Café. In all she does, Stevens demonstrates that love is good business and is able to raise millions of dollars annually for the organizations she supports in the United States and internationally.Stevens is a prolific writer, authoring several books, and she has been featured in The New York Times, Huffington Post, ABC World News, NPR, PBS, CNN, and Southern Living. In 2011, She was named by the White House as one of 15 selected Champions of Change in the Working to End Domestic Violence category. Stevens was recently named 2014 Humanitarian of the Year by the Small Business Council of America, and has been inducted into the Tennessee Women’s Hall of Fame. She has been conferred an honorary doctorate by Sewanee: The University of the South.General Seminary conferred its first honorary degree in 1885.

Bishops vote unanimously to admit Cuba as a diocese

first_img July 11, 2018 at 3:15 am It’s wonderful that our Cuban brothers and sisters can be brought back into fellowship with the Episcopal Church. Notwithstanding, I find the construction of this sentence to be rather odd: “Batista’s anti-communist, authoritarian government was replaced with a socialist state, which in 1965 aligned itself with the communist party.” It would be more accurate to say it was replaced by an authoritarian socialist (or Stalinist) state, which later aligned with the Soviet Communist Party. While the article points out the evils of the murderous and repressive Castro regime, this sentence seemed constructed to downplay the evils of his regime – especially at a time when some on the political left – including some of our Episcopal brothers and sisters – are glorifying the supposed virtues of socialism.

Well, here we are, doing business with China, Russia, and Vietnam as if the Cold War had never happened.

Our Diocesan Peace and Justice Committee was invited by the then Anglican bishop of Cuba and we stayed at the Cathedral. We learned that Fidel was not so hard on some of the churches in Cuba then. For instance, it appeared that Pastors for Peace and the Anglican Church received special favors from the government (i.e., gasoline for the van we traveled in, donated by the Diocese of Southern Florida). Life was very hard during that “Special Time” after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, but I am happy to report that life is much better now, having returned from a trip last year.

Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Austin, Texas] The Episcopal Church’s House of Bishops voted unanimously on July 10 to admit – or readmit, really – the Episcopal Church of Cuba as a diocese of the Episcopal Church. The Diocese of Cuba will become part of Province II.“I feel the breath of the Holy Spirit. Thank you, everyone, for the support right now, but really for the support all these years,” Cuba Bishop Griselda Delgado del Carpio said in Spanish through an interpreter. She took a moment to remember generations past who’d longed for reunification, “those who’d suffered but always hoped we’d return to the church.”Delgado received a standing ovation, and many hugs were shared as Presiding Bishop Michael Curry asked her to take her seat at table No. 7.Reunification was a long time coming. In response to the geopolitics of the time, the House of Bishops in 1966 voted unilaterally to separate from the Episcopal Church in Cuba.Western North Carolina Bishop José McLoughlin escorts Cuba Bishop Griselda Delgado del Carpio to the front of the House of Bishops after the vote to readmit the Diocese of Cuba to the Episcopal Church. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceThe House of Bishops “stabbed Cuba in the heart, and it refused to die,” said retired Southeast Florida Bishop Leo Frade, a Cuban who was 23 years old when the house voted to expel Cuba.“House of Deputies did nothing, the House of Bishops acted. … It was an unconstitutional action by a House of Bishops that had no authority to kick us out,” said a tearful Frade. “As Cubans, Cubans refuse to die. The reality is that the Church of Cuba is still alive, and it belongs here.”At the start of the 79th General Convention, the Episcopal Church in Cuba Committee struggled with constitutional and canonical questions regarding whether convention could act now to admit Cuba, or if it would require a constitutional change be made over two consecutive conventions.In the end, convention acted as it did similarly in 2003 when it readmitted the Diocese of Puerto Rico into the Episcopal Church. The Diocese of Puerto Rico had been since 1979 an extraprovincial diocese under Province IX’s authority. In the 1970s, it was expected that Puerto Rico, Cuba and other dioceses in the Caribbean would form their own province, though that never came to pass.Formerly a missionary district, the Episcopal Church of Cuba has functioned as an autonomous diocese of the Anglican Communion under the authority of the Metropolitan Council of Cuba since it separated from the U.S.-based Episcopal Church in 1967.New Jersey Bishop William “Chip” Stokes, bishop chair of the Episcopal Church in Cuba Committee, impressed a sense of urgency on bishops to adopt Resolution A238 as amended.“Cuba’s government is in a time less restrictive toward churches,” he said, adding that U.S. policies are unpredictable.A238 lays out the terms for reunification; it now moves to the House of Deputies.The House of Bishops took its action in 1966 in response to the effects of the Cuban Revolution and the United States’ response. The Cuban Revolution, led by Fidel Castro, began in 1953 and lasted until President Fulgencio Batista was forced from power in 1959. Batista’s anti-communist, authoritarian government was replaced with a socialist state, which in 1965 aligned itself with the communist party.In 1961, Episcopal schools in Cuba had been closed and appropriated, and many clergy and their families were displaced. Some remained in Cuba; some either returned or immigrated to the United States. Some clergy who remained in Cuba were imprisoned, executed or disappeared. Church buildings were closed and left to deteriorate. The church was polarized politically, and its clergy and lay leaders suffered. But the church continued in the living rooms of the grandmothers, who held prayer services and Bible studies in their homes. Through them is transmitted a story of pain, and of faith.The Episcopal Church of Cuba traces its origins back to an Anglican presence beginning in 1871. Today, there are some 46 congregations and missions serving 10,000 members and the wider communities. During the 1960s, Castro’s government began cracking down on religion, jailing religious leaders and believers, and it wasn’t until Pope John Paul II’s 1998 visit to Cuba, the first ever visit by a Roman Catholic pope to the island, that the government began a move back toward tolerance of religion.– Lynette Wilson is a reporter and managing editor of Episcopal News Service.

Nemani Nadolo banned for dangerous David Pocock clean out

first_imgWednesday Sep 30, 2015 Nemani Nadolo banned for dangerous David Pocock clean out Fiji’s giant winger Nemani Nadolo has been banned for a week for an incident that occurred during their 28-13 loss to Australia in their second Pool A match. London flyer Asaeli Tikoirotuma has since been called up for the match against Wales in Cardiff this Thursday.Much talked about Nadolo, particularly after scoring in the opening game against England, was adjudged to have committed an act of foul play. It was reported that it was a tip-tackle, but as you will see below, a dangerous clean out at the ruck is probably more accurate.“The judicial officer [Christopher Quinlan QC] deemed the act of foul play merited a low-end entry point of two weeks,” said an official statement.“He did not consider there to be any aggravating factors. However, taking into account mitigating factors including his excellent disciplinary record, the judicial officer reduced the suspension to a period of one week.”As you can see below, the Crusaders winger went in to clean out breakdown menace David Pocock, but appeared to do so in a dangerous manner, leaving Pocock a little uncomfortable.Pocock has said the following of the incident however: “I remember feeling like my leg got a bit stuck and my knee was in an awkward position, so I kind of pushed off backwards and kind of jumped to free my leg and then sort of flipped backwards and one hand was on the ground.“I would say that I have definitely contributed to that, but yeah, got up and got back into it. I think me flicking backwards and pushing backwards definitely added momentum to it.”While we can only see one angle below, up to four angles were supplied for the process.Nadolo has scored Fiji’s only try of the tournament so far, and contributed 16 of their 24 points. He will be replaced for the Wales match by Tikoirotuma, himself a lethal winger but is obviously not quite as imposing as the 130kg giant Nadolo.After hearing of Nadolo’s ban, Welsh flyhalf Rhys Priestland reportedly commented that “There’s a few happy boys down in the team room.”Read the full disciplinary hearing, and view the Wales and Fiji teams below the videoThursday 1 Oct, Kickoff: 16:45 local, Millennium StadiumIf the video doesn’t work for you, watch the incident on the next page, hereWales Team: 15 Matthew Morgan, 14 Alex Cuthbert, 13 Tyler Morgan, 12 Jamie Roberts, 11 George North, 10 Dan  Biggar, 9 Gareth Davies, 8 Taulupe Faletau, 7 Sam Warburton (captain), 6 Dan Lydiate, 5 Alun Wyn Jones, 4 Bradley Davies, 3 Tom Francis, 2 Scott Baldwin, 1 Gethin Jenkins Substitutes: 16 Ken Owens, 17 Aaron Jarvis, 18 Samson Lee, 19 Luke Charteris, 20 Justin Tipuric, 21 Lloyd Williams, 22 Rhys Priestland, 23 James HookFiji Team: 15 Metuisela Talebula, 14 Timoci Nagusa, 13 Vereniki Goneva, 12 Lepani Botia, 11 Asaeli Tikoirotuma, 10 Ben Volavola, 9 Nemia Kenatale, 8 Netani Talei, 7 Akapusi Qera (c), 6 Dominiko Waqaniburotu, 5 Leone Nakarawa, 4 Tevita Cavubati, 3 Manasa Saulo, 2 Sunia Koto, 1 Campese Maafu Substitutes 6 Viliame Veikoso, 17 Peni Ravia, 18 Leeroy Atalifo, 19 Nemia Soqeta, 20 Malakai Ravulo, 21 Henry Seniloli, 22 Joshua Matavesi, 23 Kini MurimurivaluADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play , Rugby World Cup Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The XV century farm villa, object of CMT Architetti restoration, is located in Tuscany (ITALY) in the town of Monteriggioni (Siena), just a few steps away from the beautiful “Castello della Chiocciola”. The Villa has been attributed by some scholars to Baldassarre Peruzzi opera, a fomous Sienese painter and architect who worked in that area between the XV and the XVI century.Save this picture!© CentrofotograficoSave this picture!© CentrofotograficoThe intervention focuses on the noble floor of 400 square meters with the realisation of a modern, functional and every comfort equipped apartment.Save this picture!© CentrofotograficoSave this picture!© CentrofotograficoThe leading idea of the project was to use two parallel registers, the almost philological restoration of the original parts and the absolutely contemporary project of new interventions and  furnishing.The result is an assembly in which the two parties communicate with expressions that are even very different, but with the constant search for a final common synthesis.Save this picture!PlanSave this picture!SectionThe original walls were treated with a lime-colored paste and pulled to iron plaster on the example of the ancients XV centuty plasters , the floor slabs too, were treated with lime.

The plot of land was considered as unsuitable land since it is a remaining area in between a street section. To profit from the fantastic view and reduce the impact to the land to a minimum the building is positioned at the very edge of the site and drafted in a compact, elongated form. Save this picture!© Gustav Willeit GuworldThe design of the house is based on the traditional archetype agricultural houses and the typical Walserhouse. The gabled roof and the strict structured wooden facade are representing elements of the present. Save this picture!© Gustav Willeit GuworldThe space allocation plan is organized by two floors. At the entrance level there is an open kitchen – living area. The tight layout and the strict organisation of the floor plan enable to get a maximum of natural light at the main floor. The movement of the sun from the east loggia to the one in the west makes living in the mountains to a true experience. The private rooms like bedrooms and bathrooms are situated at the top floor. These rooms are defined by white coated walls with a fine grained loam rendering. Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!SectionInteresting in spite of the easy cubing is the spatial sculptural linking between both floors. Some parts of the living area are reaching out to the roof top where open galleries correlate main floor with top floor. The outer skin of the building is made of rough sawn larch slats in different widths. The inner construction is built out of the same wood but in a planed and sanded implementation. Save this picture!© Gustav Willeit GuworldOn first sight Haus am Stürcherwald seems to be unspectacular but it is a convincing proof of reactivating the traditional building types without using any clichés of a classical Land- and Forest houses. It is a cultural achievement that also shows the context of the present time. On a closer inspection it disclose the subtly intervention. Save this picture!© Gustav Willeit GuworldProject gallerySee allShow lessStudioshaw’s Competition-Winning Interactive Hub for DundeeArchitecture NewsRural House / RCR ArquitectesSelected Projects Share Haus am Stürcherwald / Bernardo Bader ArchitektenSave this projectSaveHaus am Stürcherwald / Bernardo Bader Architekten ArchDaily “COPY” Houses Area:  200 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: Bernardo Bader Architekten Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses•Laterns, Austria Projects Photographs CopyAbout this officeBernardo Bader ArchitektenOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLaternsOn InstagramAustriaPublished on March 02, 2017Cite: “Haus am Stürcherwald / Bernardo Bader Architekten” 02 Mar 2017.

Established in 2004, the free service helps charities and communities get their stories into the national and regional press by enabling people to submit stories and press releases online which are then written up by Press Association journalists and sent to hundreds of newsrooms throughout the country.Caroline Diehl, Chief Executive of Media Trust, said: “The Government spending review has resulted in a number of service cuts and unfortunately this includes our hugely popular and invaluable Community Newswire. I strongly urge the Government to reconsider this decision.“We are actively seeking replacement funds and it is absolutely our intention to reintroduce this much needed service as soon as we are able. In the meantime, charities are able to access our other services including expert-led training, free communications advice and online resources.”The Community Newswire has helped 4,000 charities and community groups get their voice heard, carrying over 10,000 news stories every year. According to BBC Research, 66% of these are from hard to reach groups.The service has been provided at no charge to charities and was funded by the Cabinet Office.Diehl pointed to the service’s track record. She said: “86% of Community Newswire users have told us that their published stories raised awareness of their causes and 72% said Community Newswire stories led to an increase in enquiries to their organisation. Services such as Community Newswire are vital for charities in the current economic climate.”www.mediatrust.org/newswire Howard Lake | 31 March 2011 | News Tagged with: PR and media relations Promotional About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Cold Front to Sweep Across Majority of U.S. and Bring Indiana…

first_imgHome News Feed Cold Front to Sweep Across Majority of U.S. and Bring Indiana Frost A strong cold front will encompass 80 to 90 percent of the U.S. soon, according to USDA Meteorologist Brad Rippey. By the end of this week Rippey says there will be widespread freezes at least down to the Central High Plains and through the Midwest. Rippey says the cold system will have an indirect effect in the Northwestern region of the country.“That’s going to get the winds fired up across much of the western United States. So for a short period of time until cooler and more humid weather arrives we are going to be in an enhanced wildfire situation across most of the northwestern U.S.”It looks like the cold air will stay for a while, at least through mid-October, with a continuation of below normal temperatures from the Plains to the East Coast.“We could see temperatures rebound a little bit across western and southern Texas and also rebounding in the northwest. In terms of rainfall patterns with the cool weather in place it looks like a relatively dry pattern for much of the country continuing to favor harvest activities, but a concern for the northwestern winter wheat crops. Above normal precipitation from October 9th to the 15th is mostly confined to the southern portions of the high plains and the Rockies.”Rippey says the Great Lakes region will experience some brief, sudden rain storms and possibly some brief, sudden snow storms, and there will be some rain showers along the East Coast.Indiana will not escape the cold spell. HAT meteorologist Rob Wasson says in his newest farm forecast that Thursday temperatures will be mild before a big cool down comes in Friday with a cold front. Rain will be possible through the overnight hours and into Friday. A few lingering showers will be possible on Saturday. The much colder air comes down into the region this weekend when high temperatures will be in the 50s and lows in the 30s. Frost will be likely Saturday and Sunday nights.[audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/10/Cool-US-weather-setting-in.mp3|titles=Cool US weather setting in]Source: USDAAudio Playerhttps://media.blubrry.com/hoosieragtoday/p/www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/10/Cool-US-weather-setting-in.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedSubscribe: RSS Facebook Twitter Previous articleFocusing on the Root of Healthy SoybeansNext articleGrassley Still Hoping for Farm Bill in Lame Duck Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter Cold Front to Sweep Across Majority of U.S. and Bring Indiana Frost SHARE SHARE By Andy Eubank – Oct 3, 2012 last_img read more
