LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Mike Brown was at Twickenham on Wednesday morning, but not for the announcement of England’s Six Nations squad. He was fulfilling his ambassadorial duties for GB Wheelchair Rugby, who were launching their partnership with BT.“I love wheelchair rugby for all the same reasons I love rugby,” says Brown. “It’s fast-paced, physical and there’s lots of drama, just like in the able-bodied game.”As well as some general chit chat about the sport (he’s getting better in the wheelchair himself), we asked Brown who his top five full-backs in world rugby are. Here’s what he had to say…1. Israel Dagg“These aren’t in any particular order, but one name that springs to mind is Dagg. He’s shown over a number of years what an all-round game he’s got; he’s got all the skills. He was very good against us in the autumn, and he brings a high level of consistency to the game. He’s one that we’ll keep a close eye on in the planning stage before a match.On par: Dagg enjoys a round of golf during his down time2. Willie le Roux“He’s got a massive box of tricks. He’s very influential and involved in most of the good things that South Africa do. He stood out straight away when I saw him play, he’s classy all over the field and has a lot of infuence in the way South Africa attack.Out of reach: le Roux helps the Springboks to victory in November3. Israel Folau “Just for the athlete that he is, he’s unbelievable, and another one who played brilliantly well against us in November. I also admire him for the variety of things he’s done in different sports. I’m a big rugby fan as well as playing the game, and I love watching the Super XV, as well as some rugby league and State of Origin. Like I said, Folau is a natural athlete – it’s very frustrating! We caught up with Mike Brown to talk about the World Wheelchair Rugby Challenge, and who makes his top five full-backs list… High jinks: Folau doing what he does best during a State of Origin game4. Ben Smith“When he switches to full-back, he produces things that other players can’t. On our tour to New Zealand I realised how fortunate the All Blacks are to have two brilliant players in that position. He’s good at counter-attack and his running game is fantastic. Like Dagg, he’s an allrounder.Stateside: Smith (left) enjoys the Chicago sites with the ABs5. Rob Kearney“He’s played well for Ireland and the Lions, and I really enjoy the way he plays. He’s great under the high ball and in the way he works around the rucks. I think he plays a similar game to me in the way he runs off people.”Try guy: Kearney has scored 11 Test tries for Ireland & the LionsAnd here’s who he missed out…“I haven’t mentioned Leigh Halfpenny… he’d definitely be number six. It’s so hard to condense that lot into five, and he does bring something that the others don’t have with his goal-kicking. He’s also one of the best, if not the best, defensive full-back in the world. But he’s had a quieter season this year, and my top five have really stood out when I’ve played against them.” On a roll: Brown hones his wheelchair rugby skills with members of Team GB Check out these counter-attacking tips from Chris Pennell! The World Wheelchair Rugby Challenge involves the top teams in the world, including Australia, Canada and the USA. It will take place alongside the Rugby World Cup later this year, at the Copper Box Arena. Check out the schedule here!

Water summits in Tifton, Georgia, this week and across the U.S. provide fruit and vegetable growers with an opportunity to discuss water use on farms and simplification of existing water regulation standards with Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officials.The FDA received negative feedback concerning the complexity of quality standards and testing requirements established in the Food Safety Modernization Act and Produce Safety rule from fruit and vegetable industry stakeholders. These two-day listening summits are a result.The FDA held a water summit at the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension office in Tifton, Georgia, on Tuesday, Feb. 27, and Wednesday, Feb. 28. At the event, producers, fruit and vegetable industry representatives, educators, and researchers shared their thoughts about changes to the regulation system.The rule established nationwide, science-based, minimum standards for safe growing, harvesting, packing and holding of fruits and vegetables grown for human consumption. It represents the first time such a rule has been put into place in the U.S. Most comments at the summit dealt with the complexity of these regulations and the high costs associated with required testing.Currently, the rule requires that farms that use surface water sources, likes ponds or lakes, where the water that contacts the edible parts of the crop establish an initial water quality profile consisting of at least 20 samples. These samples must be collected close to harvesttime from each water source over two to four years.If groundwater, like water that comes from a well, is the farm’s water source, then the initial profile must consist of four samples.Findings from water testing determine whether the water meets the required microbial quality criteria.After the initial survey, the rule requires an annual survey of at least five samples of each surface water source or one sample of each groundwater source in order to update the microbial water quality calculations. These new samples become part of an ongoing record of samples. The record drops the oldest calculations to create a rolling database that provides confirmation that the water is appropriate for use with fresh produce.“We anticipate additional changes in water regulations, and FDA and the Produce Safety Alliance want feedback from growers and the produce industry,” said UGA Extension food safety specialist Judy Harrison. “These meetings allow farmers to let their voices be heard on ways to simplify requirements while still maintaining safety and what they like about the current system. They do want to try to simplify the regulations.”Water can harbor human pathogens that cause widespread foodborne illnesses. Farmers frequently use irrigation systems to produce crops, so regulations are in place and water quality testing is necessary to protect public health, she said.“You have to be really cautious about the quality of the water you’re using, whether you’re using it for irrigation or for frost protection. We’re talking about any of the uses where that water, before harvest, is likely to come in contact with the edible part of the crop,” Harrison said. “The way to contaminate a lot of produce really quickly is to use contaminated water that’s going to come in contact with the edible part of that crop.”The 2016 farm gate value for Georgia’s fruits and nuts was $745.2 million, and $1.1 billion for vegetables, according to the UGA Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development. Prevention of foodborne illnesses is crucial to protecting public health and Georgia’s fruit and vegetable industry.

Joni Huber and Treasurer Kelly MitchellIndianapolis, In. — Indiana Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch, Treasurer Kelly Mitchell and the Indiana Arts Commission recently celebrated the 2019 Hoosier women artists at the Statehouse.“Being able to promote female artists throughout our state brings me such joy and I look forward to this ceremony every year,” Crouch said. “We had an astonishing amount of art submitted, and it was very difficult to decide which pieces to bring into the office. I want to continue to encourage women in Indiana to keep exercising their artistic passions and share them.”The Hoosier Women Artists competition was established in 2008 to celebrate the importance of the arts in Indiana’s communities and showcase the work of talented female artists throughout the state. The annual competition was announced in January, and today’s 39 honorees were selected out of more than 220 entries. The entries were judged by a panel of visual Indiana arts professionals and then selected for display by Crouch and Mitchell.“As always, the amount of talent and creativity Hoosier women possess and display is impressive,” Mitchell said. “I am honored to celebrate their skill by displaying these beautiful works of art in our office during the coming year.The 39 pieces of artwork will be displayed in the offices of: Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch, Treasurer of State Kelly Mitchell, Secretary of State Connie Lawson, Auditor of State Tera Klutz, Chief Justice Loretta Rush and Superintendent of Public Instruction Jennifer McCormick, as well as in the office of First Lady Janet Holcomb in the governor’s residence.Photos from the event are online here.Below is a full list of winners.
