While there’s still a long road ahead, there is some positive news to share with you.On March 18, U.S. District Judge Jack Zouhary issued a preliminary injunction pausing enforcement of the recently passed Lake Erie Bill of Rights (LEBOR). This action stems from a lawsuit filed by a Wood County farmer the day after Toledo voters passed LEBOR in a special election. Farm Bureau stands with the farmer and his family and we appreciate that this injunction will prevent the law from taking effect while the case is litigated. The court decision brings us one step closer to protecting farmers in the Lake Erie Watershed from costly lawsuits brought on by LEBOR.Although Ohio Farm Bureau understands that this process will take time, a quick resolution is of the essence. Soon, the 2019 planting season will begin and it is our hope that our farmers in the Lake Erie watershed can get their seeds into the ground without the possibility of LEBOR lawsuits hanging over their heads.We will be watching all developments in Toledo as it pertains to this case and will keep you updated as new information becomes available.Sincerely,Adam J.

Twitter/@BigTenNetworkThe first episode of Big Ten Network’s Hard Knocks-style documentary series about Ohio State football, Scarlet & Gray Days, premiered tonight, and it promises to be an incredibly fun look inside the defending national champions as we head towards the season. The episode highlighted a few players, including quarterback Cardale Jones, QB-turned-receiver and h-back Braxton Miller, and linebacker Josh Perry. Here are our five favorite moments from the pilot episode.1.) Josh Perry describes his Ronda Rousey-based beef with Cardale Jones:Cardale may have the shirt, but Perry has the photo. We expect this to be a recurring storyline.2.) Braxton Miller gets burgers and hot dogs, while Cardale Jones gets the first class meal:Lesson learned: even former Big Ten Players of the Year have to eat the worse meal if they oversleep before a workout.3.) Big brothers are chosen for Ohio State freshmen:Very cool, and funny look inside the process.4.) Cornerbacks coach Kerry Coombs trash talks h-back Jalin Marshall:Every year when HBO does Hard Knocks, one of the assistant coaches is a breakout star. For Scarlet & Gray Days, it looks like Coombs will be that guy.5.) Urban Meyer coaches up Braxton Miller at wide receiver:Is there a more intriguing skill position player in the country right now?Overall, very fun first episode from Big Ten Network. This will certainly help us get through these long last few weeks before football officially begins.
Advertisement Login/Register With: Advertisement AS A CHILD, DID YOU WANT TO BE AN ACTOR OR DID IT FALL INTO PLACE THROUGH OTHER ACTIVITIES?I think that I demonstrated a flair for dramatics at a pretty young age haha. I loved telling stories. I trained as a competitive figure skater for 10 years and that was my main extra-curricular as a kid. But I was always singing around the house – to the extreme annoyance of my family. I remember being obsessed with the 2007 movie musical “Hairspray” and dressing up as Penny Pingleton for Halloween that year. Although, it wasn’t until high school that I got involved in the performing arts through Shakespeare plays, musicals and show choir in my hometown of Waterloo, Ontario.WHO INSPIRED YOU TO FOLLOW YOUR DREAM TO PURSUE ACTING?There’s a commencement speech that Jim Carrey gave in 2014 about chasing your dreams. In the midst of my own mid-youth crisis, his words really woke me up. I realized that the choices I had been making about my future, were made as he put it, “out of fear, disguised as practicality”. He said that “you can fail at what you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.” It hit me like a lightning bolt and I realized all at once that I wasn’t going to be truly happy pursuing a career that was not creative.WHAT CHALLENGES HAVE YOU FACED IN THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY? WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR MOST REWARDING EXPERIENCE?Auditioning was a huge challenge for me after acting school when I was first starting out. It became clear to me early on that I needed to hone my audition technique and learn how to combat my nerves. So I worked hard at it and took a couple on camera auditioning classes. Auditioning gets easier and easier every time, especially if you’re returning to a casting director who has already seen you before for another project. I’ve learned to enjoy the process (because you really have nothing to lose), and to approach every audition as an opportunity to grow as an actor, regardless of the outcome.I’m fortunate to have had many rewarding experiences performing, but some of my favourite memories have been on set. There is something electric about building a world around you that convinces even the crew members of your character’s reality while you’re filming. It’s so rewarding to collaborate with other artists and work together towards a common goal of bringing a script to life.WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE TYPE OF CHARACTER TO PLAY?I love playing characters that are relatable and a little dorky. No matter what the genre, I’m always looking for ways to bring comedic, human quirks to a character. And on the more dramatic side of things, I love playing characters that have fight in them, even in the most tragic circumstances. Those stories are so important to tell, and it is so fulfilling as an actor to get to delve into those characters. Most of the roles I go out for are in the teen/young adult age range, and I LOVE playing there. Teenagers are often extremely emotionally charged and have a lot going on, so it’s really fun to access that as an actor in my 20’s. I embrace all challenges.WHAT MARKET DO YOU CURRENTLY WORK IN? ARE THERE OTHER AREAS YOU WOULD LIKE TO WORK?Right now I’m focusing my energy into film and television acting, and I’m based in Toronto. The film industry is growing rapidly here, especially with festivals like TIFF giving Canadian content the exposure it deserves. I’m also very interested in the prospect of creating my own content. I’m currently in the process of writing a screenplay for a feature film that I’m hoping to star in and direct.WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO SOMEONE NEW TRYING TO MAKE IT IN THE ACTING INDUSTRY?Let go of perfection. I’m a huge perfectionist in real life, and one of the biggest things I struggled with in acting school was always trying to execute the “perfect” performance that I pictured in my head. It’s okay to have high expectations of yourself as an artist but it will hinder your performance if you are so self-aware and critical of yourself that you miss out on what’s happening in the moment. Never forfeit the opportunity to work off of your scene partner. Life is messy and so are people, so your characters are allowed to be too. Don’t be afraid to give yourself the freedom to fail and know that you are never a finished product. Your craft is always a work in progress and the training never stops.WHAT FUELS YOUR PASSION?What drives me is the power to impact people. I think it’s probably the most powerful thing in the world; our ability to make someone else (especially a stranger) feel something. What I love about film is that it sort of puts a microscope on the world, and forces us to reflect on ourselves and on society as a whole. Film is more than just entertainment for the masses, it’s a catalyst for positive change. If I can spend my life being a part of that in any capacity, I will be happy.WHAT IS SOMETHING ABOUT YOU THAT MOST PEOPLE WOULD NEVER GUESS?I could probably eat more than my own body weight in popcorn.WHO ARE YOU CURRENTLY REPRESENTED BY?I’m represented by Tovah Small of Meridian Artists. She’s an absolute gem to work with.WHERE HAVE YOU TRAINED?I trained intensively in screen acting for two years in the Acting for Film & Television program at Humber College. Since graduating last year, I have trained at The Lighthouse Acting Studio and do private audition coaching sessions when time allows. I’m looking to train at Second City next!IF YOU WERE TO DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN, WOULD YOU DO THINGS EXACTLY THE SAME? DO YOU HAVE ANY REGRETS? SUCCESSES THAT MAKE YOU PROUD? I regret not starting earlier. I regret not taking singing lessons/dance lessons/acting lessons when I was a kid. But on the other hand, I had to work harder than some of my peers to sort of “catch up” and it showed me how badly I want this for myself. Work ethic is not always something that can be taught and it is one of my most valuable traits. Talent is wasted on laziness. What makes me most proud of myself is my consistent personal and artistic growth. That’s how I measure my success as an actor. This past pilot season I’ve had the opportunity to audition for so many amazing projects, many of them Netflix series, that I never would have dreamt of a year ago when I was graduating from college. Getting in the room is an accomplishment all on its own, regardless of whether or not you get the part.AGENT: Tovah Small of Meridian Artists FOLLOW CLARICE ON SOCIAL MEDIA:FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/clarice.goetzINSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/clarice.goetz/WEBSITE: https://www.claricegoetz.com/CLICK HERE TO VIEW ALL INTERVIEWS IN OUR ASPIRING TALENT SERIESIf you are an aspiring talent and would like to be featured in our Aspiring Talent SeriesContact Darlene via email at firstname.lastname@example.orgOpen to all (e.g. Actors, Models, Singers, Dancers, Producers, Directors, etc.) Twitter Advertisement As part of the eBoss Canada aspiring talent series, we had the opportunity to speak with Clarice Goetz.Clarice is an actress based out of Toronto working towards her dream.

Miami: Roger Federer admits he faces a real battle to land the 101st title of his career with the in-form Daniil Medvedev next up after Serbian Filip Krajinovic was dispatched 7-5 6-3 on Monday at the ATP and WTA Miami Open. The Swiss superstar produced an excellent all-round performance despite being tested by the world number 103 who belied his lowly ranking by producing some excellent tennis during an exciting first set. Federer, however, stylishly weathered the storm to seal the win – the 52nd of his career in Miami – and set up an intriguing last eight match with the highly-rated Medvedev. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhThe Russian, who is at a career high ranking of 15, saw off American Reilly Opelka 7-6 (7/5) 6-7 (5/7) 7-6 (7/0), and has won four ATP hard-court titles, including three since last August. Federer beat him twice last year but is already a fan. “He’s clever how he plays the court because he can play it up and down, and he’s unusual when he plays from back,” said the Swiss, who hit 14 aces and won an impressive 74% of points on his first serve. “It’s a bit of a different approach.Thankfully I played him last year twice in Basel and Shanghai and I’m very impressed about his progress. I must say the last year has been unbelievable for him.” Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced laterKrajinovic struggled with injury last year as problems with his ankle, left foot and hand restricted him to just seven tournaments in the first seven months of 2018. Yet some fierce hitting from the back of the court surprised the predictably pro-Federer crowd and a brilliant run and flick over the net handed him an early break for 3-2. Keeping the pressure on, however, was a different matter as Federer broke straight back before pocketing the opening set. The second set wasn’t as competitive, Federer easing home and finishing with 35 winners compared to the Serbian’s 18. Elsewhere, number 24 seed Grigor Dimitrov was beaten by world number 77 Jordan Thompson in straight sets ensuring the Australian will meet 2018 Wimbledon finalist Kevin Anderson who beat Portugal’s Joao Sousa 6-4, 7-6 (8/6). Simona Halep, meanwhile, got the better of Venus Williams once again as the Romanian made light work of the 38-year-old American to book a place in the quarter-finals with a 6-3, 6-3 win. “I was pretty strong with my serve and knew where to bother her,” said the reigning French Open champion who will meet China’s Wang Qiang in the last eight. “When I saw I can win easy games with my serve, it gave me great confidence,” she added. Bianca Andreescu, the 18-year-old Canadian sensation who won the title in Indian Wells, was forced to withdraw in the second set of her fourth round match with Anett Kontaveit. Andreescu was 1-6 0-2 down before a shoulder injury ruined her chances of another run to the finals. The Estonian will meet Taiwan’s Hsieh Su-Wei who continued her excellent form with a 6-3, 6-7 (0/7), 6-2 win over Caroline Wozniacki. Petra Kvitova, the world number 3, booked her place in the last eight, beating Caroline Garcia 6-3, 6-3 in a match which was held up for one hour and 40 minutes because of rain in South Florida. Kvitova plays Australian Ashleigh Barty for a place in the semi-finals.
Bangalore: Bottom-placed Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will look to salvage pride while Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will aim to seal the final play-off berth when the two sides square-off for one final time in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium here on Saturday. The Kane Williamson-led Hyderabad side will need to forget their disappointing Super Over loss to three-time champions Mumbai Indians and need to get their act together in their must-win game. Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: RijijuOne good news for Hyderabad is that even if they lose their last game, they can still reach the playoffs if Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) don’t win more than one of their last two matches. In the absence of their star batsmen — David Warner and Johnny Bairstow — young Manish Pandey shouldered the responsibility in their game against Mumbai as he clobbered Hardik Pandya for a six in the final ball to push the match into the Super Over. Also Read – Djokovic to debut against Shapovalov at Shanghai MastersPandey played a valiant 47-ball unbeaten 71-run knock and didn’t let his team miss the presence of Warner, who had consecutively scored runs for Hyderabad this season. Along with him, skipper Williamson, all-rounder Vijay Shankar and comeback man Wriddhiman Saha will also need to contribute effectively. The Hyderabad bowlers have performed well so far but will need to click as a unit against Bangalore, which boasts of batsmen like AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli. A lot will also depend on leg-spinner Rashid Khan and K Khaleel Ahmed, who have been amongst the wickets for the Orange Army. While Rashid has 14 wickets from 13 games, Khaleel has also been impressive with 14 scalps from just seven matches. They will need the support of the experienced Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Coming to Bangalore, the Kohli-led side has nothing to lose and will just look to play for pride after exiting from the race to the play-offs. Kohli will certainly aim to end things on a winning note after losing eight of their 13 games. The skipper, who has amassed 448 runs from 13 games, is the leading run-getter for his side but lacked support from the other batsmen. Apart from him, de Villers has also contributed with 441 runs from 12 games. The duo will need to leave the sad memories behind and get their act together. Bangalore’s bowling would once again rely on Yuzvendra Chahal, Umesh Yadav and Navdeep Saini. Despite the wicket generally assisting batsmen in Bangalore, the host’s bowlers will have to get wickets at regular intervals besides being economical.
Australian central midfielder Josip Skoko believes Australia have shown they are last-16 contenders and they are worthy to have more than a point from their opening two World Cup games.The Socceroos played out a 1-1 draw with Denmark after opening their Group C campaign with an unfortunate 2-1 loss to France.“They did really well. They set up tactically very well, they were quite close to each other, tight, didn’t give the Danes too many chances,” he told Omnisport via FourFourTwo.“And just when I thought they weren’t going to take it to the Danes, they did, and maybe the goal helped in that.An Aussie is living the “European dream” Manuel R. Medina – June 19, 2019 Defender George Timotheou is playing with Schalke in the German Bundesliga after he couldn’t appear even once in the Australian League.“I don’t really like when the Aussies sit back too much and just play tactically, I like them to come out and really have a crack and they did that when they needed to. They came out, they attacked and they created a lot of chances, which full credit to them, they really should’ve got the result, should’ve got the three points.“They outplayed them in the end and deserved more. I really like the fact that they looked confident, it wasn’t a nervous performance, it was a solid, controlled performance and one that says Australia is on the stage should be there and it’s a proper, proper contender to get through to the next round.”Skoko made 51 appearances for the Socceroos throughout his career.
