Peanut IL tweaks RFP

first_imgThe Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Peanut has dropped a request that project proposals initially explain how they will use outputs from commissioned projects, since the details of those commissioned projects are not yet available.Concept notes on project proposals are due April 20 for scientists who would like to lead a project in the $14 million, five-year Peanut Innovation Lab program.Originally, the Request for Proposals encouraged scientists to explain how proposed projects would utilize the outputs from commissioned projects. Given that the commissioned projects are not yet approved, scientists will not be required to explain that connection in concept notes; instead, the management entity will work with selected PIs to consider the commissioned projects as they develop the full proposals.The Peanut Innovation Lab is accepting concept notes in two Areas of Inquiry – varietal development and value-added gains – and is using a Piestar project management system. To download the RFP, go to the Peanut Lab Opportunities web page. Support documents (such as the data management plan and a copy of an earlier webinar to answer questions on the RFPs) are on the Peanut Lab’s Work with Us page of the Peanut Innovation Lab website.Any further questions can be sent to Dave Hoisington at [email protected]last_img read more

Football: To fuel 2019 season, Badger secondary looking for consistency

first_imgAfter last week’s dive into the units of defensive backs and linebackers, this week the focus is on Coach Paul Chryst’s secondary: Cornerbacks and safeties.The key to a great defense is every position unit contributing simultaneously and taking pressure off the rest of the defense in the process. Controlling the run game doesn’t matter if the opposing team is able to move the ball through the air, and vice-versa. Thus, a key variable contributing to the Badgers’ success this coming season will be the secondary.CornerbackCornerback is a key position for Defensive Coordinator Jim Leonhard’s unit. If his players in the trenches are able to control the game at the line of scrimmage, as they often have in the past, and limit the rushing attack of the opposing offense, the secondary is able to sit back in coverage and pay more attention to covering opposing receivers.Leonhard said goodbye to ultra-productive starting corners Nick Nelson and Derrick Tindal after the 2017 season, along with projected starter Dontye Carriere-Williams just days before the 2018 season.Football: Badgers begin work towards returning to familiar formWith a new year comes another round of spring football practices, the setting in which veterans get to prove their Read…After losing practically all of his production, Leonhard was forced to interchange corners constantly as the 2018 season progressed. Specifically, Leonhard started six different cornerbacks throughout the season, many of them freshmen who had never before played at the collegiate level.Now, with all contributors at the position from last season returning to Madison for at least another year with at least some experience under their belt, Leonhard has the depth to foster competition and strength from the position as the season approaches.Returning players who contributed meaningful snaps a season ago include sophomore Donte Burton, redshirt sophomore Deron Harrell, redshirt sophomore Faion Hicks, redshirt junior Caesar Williams, sophomore Madison Cone and sophomore Rachad Wildgoose.Hicks, Williams and Wildgoose are more traditional outside cornerbacks and saw much of the work at the position a season ago. They started a total of 23 games between the three of them, recording a total of 88 tackles, 13 pass breakups, two interceptions and two fumble recoveries.The likely contributors at the slot or nickel cornerback position are Burton and Cone. Cone led this position unit with two interceptions last year, while Burton played in four games, starting in one.To go along with these names, Chryst and Leonhard will welcome true freshmen Semar Melvin, James Williams and Dean Engram when summer preparation begins.Overall, similar to the improvements needed at linebacker, Leonhard hopes his unit will use some of the valued experience gained last season to improve upon the low turnover and deflection totals they had a year ago.Football: Fresh defensive line, linebacking corps seek to return Wisconsin defense to dominanceThe date was December 27, but the Badgers’ 34–3 Pinstripe Bowl victory against the University of Miami feels like it Read…SafetyFour-year starter, 2018 team captain and 2018 Collegiate Man of the Year D’Cota Dixon played his last game as a Badger last season and has declared for the NFL draft. With Dixon gone from the lineup, it’s now time for Chryst and Leonhard to find his replacement.There’s no question it will be challenging to replace his memorable Wisconsin career, one which ended with 32 starts, 177 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, 3 forced fumbles, 5 interceptions, 16 pass breakups and a .778 winning percentage, though his injury last season did give valuable experience to the youth at the position.This youth, similar to the cornerback position, showed flashes at times last year, but struggled in others.The two projected starters at safety are Scott Nelson and Eric Burrell. Nelson, a redshirt freshman last season, started eight games for the Badgers and recorded 41 tackles, one forced fumble, 3.5 tackles for loss, six pass breakups and one interception. Despite being thrust into a significant role as a freshman, Nelson showed flashes of brilliance and toughness at the position, though at times also showed his lack of experience in certain situations.One of the faults at the position last year were the injuries that plagued Nelson and Dixon. Men’s basketball: Ethan Happ earns second-team All-American honorsUniversity of Wisconsin men’s basketball star Ethan Happ just added another accolade to his incredible college career. The senior, whose Read…On the bright side, these injuries gave way for Burrell to showcase his ability to make plays and punish receivers. Burrell ended up playing in 13 games and recorded 42 tackles, two forced fumbles, one interception and two pass breakups.If Nelson and Burrell are able to develop this spring, stay injury free and build upon their productive 2018 campaigns, the back end of Jim Leonhard’s secondary should be in good hands.Other names to know at the position are redshirt junior and Houston transfer Collin Wilder and redshirt freshman Reggie Pearson. Wilder was known more as a special teams producer at Houston, and Pearson showed promise in his one start last season against Michigan, where he recorded a forced fumble to accompany his five tackles.This wraps up the defensive side of the spring preview series. Although Chryst and his staff said goodbye to many producers on the defensive side of the ball, there is hope going into the 2019 season that new names can emerge and work together to bring back the vaunted Wisconsin defense we’re all accustomed to.Positions up next for the spring previews are the offensive line and running backs. Spoiler alert: Jonathan Taylor is good at football.last_img read more

Mixed feelings for goalscorer Wakaso

first_imgMubarak Wakaso is proud to have scored his first Africa Cup of Nations goal but has been left disappointed by his suspension for Ghana’s next game at the finals.The 22 year-old midfielder converted a first-half penalty that handed Ghana a 1-0 win over Mali, a result which takes Black Stars to the top in the Group B standings with four points from their opening two matches.With Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan relinquishing his penalty kick duties, Wakaso stepped up ahead of other players to fire past the Malian goalkeeper Samassa Mamadou for the winner.“I have to feel happy [to score debut Nations Cup goal],” Wakaso told “It’s not easy to get a goal for your nation and it was the only goal for the game.”“We have Agyemang Badu and Isaac Vorsah but when the kick came, Badu was down with injury and Vorsah was at the back and that is the reason why I took the penalty.”But his goal celebration will cost him a place in Kwesi Appiah’s team for the final group game against Niger on Monday through suspension after picking a second yellow card in the competition. Wakaso, after scoring was booked for displaying a slogan when he lifted up his jersey to reveal “Allah is Great” emblazoned on his t-shirt.“I feel bad but I have to accept it because it’s part of the game,” he said.“But we still need to work hard and get our final three points.”The midfielder, who did not finish the game at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Thursday after he was carried off with an injury to his knee is hoping it improves.“I feel a little pain but I don’t know how I will look tomorrow [Friday].”last_img read more
