(Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)Georgia, the favorite in the SEC East, is coming off of one of the biggest upset losses of the year. The Dawgs fell to South Carolina in double overtime, a loss that doesn’t really have a major impact in the team’s ceiling, in reality, but calls into question its ability to score against top defenses. Next up: a chance to bounce back against Kentucky.South Carolina managed to hold Georgia to four yards per carry, and put them game in Jake Fromm’s hands. He didn’t deliver.The junior threw for under six yards per attempt, despite chucking the ball 51 times in the game. He was also intercepted three times, a career high for the vaunted signal caller.Georgia should have a prime bounceback opportunity this weekend against Kentucky, which has had some expected regression from last season’s 10-win team. The Wildcats have started to figure some things out though. UK is coming off of a 24-20 win over Arkansas, in which Lynn Bowden channeled former do-it-all Kentucky star Randall Cobb. The quarterback was 7-of-11 through the air for 78 yards and a score, but really diced up the Razorbacks on the ground, with 196 yards and two scores. Bowden now has 643 total yards on the ground and as a receiver this year, with 117 passing at quarterback.Game 7 Trailer | One City #ATD #GoDawgs— Georgia Football (@GeorgiaFootball) October 18, 2019More on Saturday’s game:Game Time: Saturday, 6:00 p.m. ETChannel: ESPNSpread: Georgia -25Over/Under: 46.5Announcers: Jason Benetti, Rod Gilmore, Quint KessenichGeorgia was a big favorite over South Carolina as well, but this should be a step down in opponent. The Gamecocks beat the Wildcats a few weeks ago, 24-7.Kentucky is just 3-3 on the year, and was dealt a very tough hand early on with the season-ending injury to starting quarterback Terry Wilson in early September.The Wildcats are a pretty middling club on both sides of the ball, while Georgia is usually very successful playing its game, last week’s disappointment aside. Expect to see a very motivated Bulldogs team that knows that if it wins out and heads to the SEC Championship, a national title very much remains in the picture.last_img read more

UN agriculture agency and IKEA join forces for sustainable forest management

The joint effort – rolled out earlier this morning with the signing of a cooperation agreement – will see the two partners undertake an initial analysis to evaluate options for advancing forest certification schemes and sustainable forest management in the Southeast Asian country’s northern regions. “Millions of people rely on forests for their food and incomes, and certification schemes can offer them a tool for safeguarding their interests and preserving their forests, as well as fairer access to new markets,” FAO’s Assistant-Director General for Forestry, Eduardo Rojas-Briales, said in a press release. According to the UN food agency, certification can also provide an additional mechanism for monitoring the sustainability of forest management and for tracing timber and other forest products through supply chains before they are used in a wide-range of products, including furniture. Mr. Rojas-Briales noted, however, that certifications often pose “special challenges” to small-growers and communities for whom the cost of the certification process may be too high. As a result, the planned IKEA-FAO joint venture will explore options and barriers to effective forest certification, including assessing local legal and regulatory frameworks and the quality of local forest resource assessments; locating communities and producer organizations that could potentially benefit from participating in a certification scheme to access IKEA supply chains; and identifying barriers to the certification process and issues which have been or are currently hindering it. The initial study will also probe the potential for scaling up and replicating the initiative elsewhere. “We are glad to be partnering with IKEA to look at how hurdles to forest certification can be overcome, with the wellbeing of forest communities featuring front-and-centre,” added Mr. Rojas-Briales. read more
