CLEVELAND – The Browns and Falcons were on very different trajectories heading into their Week 10 showdown. Since starting the season a promising 2-2-1, Cleveland had dropped four straight and the season quickly went form postseason dreams to progressing for the future. Atlanta on the other hand, got off to an uncharacteristic 1-3, slow start to the season before rattling off three straight wins. So just as everyone expected, the Browns pulled off a massive upset to snap both streaks with a 28-16 win on Sunday.It took former head coach Hue Jackson 15 tries to win his first game as the Cleveland Browns head coach in 2016. After taking over for the now fired Jackson two weeks ago, interim head coach Greg Williams needed just two games to accomplish the same feat.Williams has rookies Baker Mayfield and Nick Chubb to thank for his first win as Browns head coach. That duo had a hand in all four of Cleveland’s touchdowns on the day in what was arguably the biggest Browns win since a 31-10 win over Pittsburgh in 2014.Here are five takeaways from the Browns third win of the season:1) A First Quarter TouchdownIt took long enough but the Cleveland Browns finally, 10 weeks into the season have scored a first quarter touchdown. It came on their second possession of the game. It was no gimmie either as the Browns started the series back on their own 12.On the first play of the drive Mayfield hit Breshad Perriman for a 16-yard gain. Two plays later it was Mayfield moving the sticks again with an 18-yard strike to Njoku as they were quickly set up just shy of midfield. On the very next play they’d cross into Falcons territory with a 13-yard pass from Mayfield to Chubb. The either-play, 88-yard drive and the first quarter touchdown drought eventually ended with Mayfield completing with a 28-yard touchdown pass to Rashard Higgins.What a relief for this Browns offense. It really shouldn’t have taken this long. Put a feather in new offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens’ cap for pulling off something his predecessor Todd Haley couldn’t. In just two weeks the offense under Kitchens looks much more efficient than it ever did under Haley.

South Africa’s North West province has called on interested farming communities to apply to participate in the final phase of a stock farming development project, which gives successful applicants 24 Nguni cattle in the form of a loan, before the end of June 2010.The Nguni cattle have been chosen specifically because they are an indigenous breed and can thrive under difficult conditions. (Image: Storm Signal)Brand South Africa reporterThe project is a partnership between the North West Department of Agriculture, Conservation, Environment and Rural Development, the Industrial Development Corporation and the North West University’s Mafikeng campus, and has shown remarkable growth since its inception four years ago.Project manager Andrew Mathe says all interested farmers must fill in application forms which are available from all local development centres and district offices. They should then be submitted for a selection process that includes short listing of potential beneficiaries, interviews and an on-site visit by the provincial technical committee to verify information provided by applicants.The province is urging especially young aspirant farmers and female farmers to take advantage of this opportunity and apply for participation.Participation criteriaThe set criteria for participation in the project includes sufficient land to accommodate livestock numbers at recommended rates; that applicants must be in possession of certified proof indicating ownership, lease-right or use-right of the land for the five year-long duration of the project; that livestock must be managed in a controlled environment; and that commitment to the project and that daily supervision of livestock must be ensured.“There are however specific exclusions for participation in the project,” explained Mathe in a statement this week.“Where personnel and their immediate families of participating institutions, all public servants and their immediate families and communities currently benefitting from any beef projects originating from the participating institutions are prohibited from participating in the project.”For each successful application, 24 Nguni cattle – 23 heifers and one bull – are handed over in a form of a loan. Each beneficiary will enter into a contract, committing to return back to the project 11 heifers and a bull after five years and keep the remaining number and any progeny resulting from efficient management of the herd.Successful applicants receive 24 Nguni cattle – 23 heifers and one bull – in the form of a loan. (Image: IDC)Reintroducing Nguni cattleThe main objective of this project is to reintroduce the Nguni breed of cattle into the province in large numbers, focusing specifically on emerging black farmers. The project is aimed at empowering these farmers with livestock farming skills and developing their entrepreneurship abilities.The Nguni cattle have been chosen specifically because they are an indigenous breed and can thrive under difficult conditions. They are easy to maintain because of their low cost input, are reputed to have high fertility rates, and can withstand adverse conditions and diseases than other breed of cattle.More than hundred beneficiaries from all districts in the province, who include both individuals and communities, have benefited from this project since its inception in 2006.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

For purposes of a Florida sales and use tax exemption for industrial machinery and equipment purchased for use at a fixed location for the manufacture, processing, compounding, or production of items of tangible personal property, an operator of energy from waste (EfW) facilities owned by municipalities did not qualify as an “eligible manufacturing business” because the operator’s business activities were identifiable under an NAICS number that was not a qualifying code for the exemption.The operator was not excluded from another exemption for industrial machinery and equipment uses at a fixed location in the state to produce electrical or steam energy based on the operator’s holding of a permit issued by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, although the operator would have to strictly adhere to the statutory provisions for the exemption. Municipal ownership of the facilities had no effect on application of that exemption to the operator’s business.There was no basis for application to the operator’s business of an exemption relating to labor charges for the repair of, and parts and material used in the repair of or incorporated into, certain industrial machinery and equipment used for shipping of items of tangible personal property at a fixed location in the state because the operator’s NAICS number was outside the exemption. For purposes of that exemption, the manufacturing process began at the point that the solid waste was delivered to the scale house for inspection. Machinery and equipment used to directly sort and grade materials to be used as fuels to generate electrical energy would be exempt from tax. However, the scales used to measure the amounts of materials received and that are not integral to the manufacturing process would not qualify for the exemption. The manufacturing process ends at the point where the electricity is prepared at the first step-up point/transformer at the production facility location, which is prior to distribution to customers.Technical Assistance Advisement, No. 17A-006, Florida Department of Revenue, February 9, 2017, ¶206-268
Australian spin legend Shane Warne has little doubt that Sachin Tendulkar would get his 100th international century on the present tour Down Under, but he wished the iconic Indian batsman to reach the feat in the first cricket Test starting December 26 here.”I feel Sachin would get his 100th century (in Australia) but I wish he does so in Melbourne,” Warne said on the sidelines of a function at the Melbourne Cricket Ground where his 300kg bronze statue was unveiled this morning.Warne, who in his entire career could claim Tendulkar’s wicket only thrice in Test matches, has enormous respect for the champion Indian batsman whom he rates as the best willow-wielder of his time.The first match against Australia would be Tendulkar’s 185th Test. He has so far made 15,183 runs from 303 innings with 51 centuries at an average of 56.03 in five-day games.Tendulkar also has 18,111 runs from 453 ODIs with 48 centuries under his belt at an average of 45.16.Tendulkar, though, has struggled to add to his tally of 99 international centuries this year ? his last ton being 111 against South Africa at Nagpur in March during the World Cup.His last Test century was also against South Africa – 146 at the Newlands, Cape Town in January and has been without a ton in the longest format of the game in his last 14 innings.On the present tour, India revisits Melbourne again in February, though it would be for a 50-over match against Australia on February 3.Meanwhile, Warne also expects the famed Indian batting line up to do well in the upcoming series.advertisement”I think their batters, especially Rahul Dravid, will make big runs. He’s a quality person, a quality act, a quality player.”India has a quality team. In Test cricket we’ve seen them, against the West Indies. Their batsmen will do pretty well,” said Warne, who ended his career with 708 wickets from 145 Tests at a staggering average of 25.42.The former leg-spinner, however, did not boast of an impressive record against India. In his 14 Tests against India, Warne captured only 43 wickets at an average of 47.19.If Warne is confident about India’s good showing in the batting department in Australia, he has serious doubts over the visitors’ bowling abilities.”Their bowlers will have to stay fit. If Zaheer Khan or Ishant Sharma get injured, then I think their bowling attack could be quite weak. The Australian batsmen could perform pretty well. I think it’s going to come down to how India are going to take 20 wickets with their bowling,” he said.
