first_imgWatford boss Javi Gracia paid tribute to his side’s display after booking their place in the FA Cup semi-finals by beating Crystal Palace 2-1.The Spaniard’s decision to rest several of his key players from last weekend’s 3-1 Premier League defeat to Manchester City paid off this afternoon as Watford embarked on a strong start at Vicarage Road.Etienne Capoue soon got Watford a deserved first-half lead in their quarter-final tie, before Chelsea loanee Michy Batshuayi equalised for Palace after the break upon snatching the ball from Adrian Mariappa and cooly putting the ball into the net.But the visitors were unable to build on their new-found momentum and were, therefore, punished in brutal fashion when substitute Andre Gray scored inside his first two minutes to send Watford into the semi-finals.Speaking after the victory, a clearly delighted Gracia paid tribute to the performance of his side and super-sub Gray for sending them into the last four of the FA Cup.“It is amazing for all of us, for the players, staff and supporters,” Gracia told BBC.Joel Ward, Crystal PalaceHow Joe Ward thanks his faith for his football Manuel R. Medina – September 13, 2019 Crystal Palace defender, Joel Ward, has thanked his Christian faith for helping him play football professionally and he explains why.“It is an important day to have the chance to enjoy a semi-final, we are keeping the same level, competing well and that it is our target in this moment.“We put Andre Gray on the pitch, he always has a good chance to score and scores important goals for the team, he deserves it and I am happy for him.”Meanwhile, Palace boss Roy Hodgson was particularly disappointed by the outcome and felt that the conditions were pretty much against his side right from the start.“It was a close game, once again a game at this stage of the season affected by conditions – the wind was difficult, and you can’t get the ball down on the ground as much,” said the 71-year-old.“At half-time, there wasn’t much to say – they had a lot of corners and used the wind to their advantage.“In the second half we played a lot better, got a deserved equaliser and we were looking like it could be us to get the second goal. But, it was the opposite, a good goal from Gray wins it for Watford.”WATFORD, ENGLAND – MARCH 16: Andre Gray of Watford celebrates with teammates after scoring his team’s second goal during the FA Cup Quarter Final match between Watford and Crystal Palace at Vicarage Road on March 16, 2019 in Watford, England.

Previous articleThe State of the Rural Economy is “Fragile”Next articleMorning Outlook Eric Pfeiffer Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE Trade and Farm Bill Atop NASDA Agenda in D.C. ISDA Director Bruce Kettler on Trade and 2018 Farm BillThe National Association of State Departments of Agriculture held its Winter Policy Conference at the end of January in Washington, D.C. Indiana State Department of Agriculture Director Bruce Kettler was among the attendees. Trade and the 2018 Farm Bill were atop the agenda. Kettler says despite some reports, the overall mood in the room was optimistic regarding NAFTA. “Overall, from a NAFTA standpoint, there’s optimism. It’s guarded, it’s not gleeful necessarily. But what I think everybody understands is how important those two trading partners are to our country in terms of its agriculture output.”Just how important is NAFTA to Indiana? According to americansforfarmersandfamilies.com, out of the $1.4 Billion in total Food and Ag product exports in 2016, $573 Million, or 42%, went to NAFTA partners.Kettler says they spent time on the hill speaking with staff members of Senators Young and Donnelly as well as staff members from the Senate and House Ag Committees regarding the 2018 Farm Bill. He says there is reasonable optimism that they may get a bill marked up by Spring. One thing Kettler says we need to pay attention to is disaster relief for the cotton and dairy industries. “If they get some disaster relief put in outside of the Farm Bill that’ll help from a funding standpoint. If they don’t and something goes into the Farm Bill, that’s going to take a lot of dollars away. There (won’t) be new dollars in the Farm Bill.”last_img

first_img Reporters Without Borders urges the US immigration authorities to grant an emergency residence permit – followed as soon as possible by political asylum – to Ricardo Chávez Aldana, a radio journalist based in the northern border city of Ciudad Juárez, who was forced to flee across the border with his family to the Texan city of El Paso on 10 December.“The US immigration authorities must be aware of the level of violence in Ciudad Juárez, which has affected security on the US side of the border as well,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Chávez and his family would probably have been murdered if they had not rushed to cross the border. Reporting is a high-risk job when you cover organised crime and Chávez is not the first journalists to opt for exile, and will not the last one. For the sake of his safety, he must be allowed to enter the United States when necessary.”Chávez, who works for Radio Cañon, fled with his mother, wife and son across the border to El Paso after getting a series of phone calls threatening his family, several Mexican newspapers said. On 9 December, the day before he fled, he reported on the air that two of his nephews, Diego and Argenis Chávez Luis, aged 15 and 17 respectively, were among four youths who had just been killed in a shooting in Ciudad Juárez. In his report, he condemned the failure of the authorities to arrest those responsible and the freedom with which gunmen operate in the city.Initially determined to defy the threats, Chávez changed his mind and decided to flee although he does not have a passport. “Before crossing the border with my family, I knew we would be arrested by the immigration authorities but it is better to be locked up than dead,” he told Radio Cañon colleagues by telephone from the US side of the border, according to a report in the newspaper La Jornada.Chávez’s story recalls that of Emilio Gutiérrez Soto, the correspondent of the regional newspaper El Diario, who fled across the border on 15 June 2008 after being threatened by the Mexican army and was held until 29 January 2009 in a detention centre in El Paso.
