Newcastle winger Rolando Aarons has suffered another injury setback which is expected to keep him out of action for the rest of the season.The 19-year-old was in contention to play for the club’s under-21s against Derby on Wednesday along with fellow long-term absentee Siem de Jong.Aarons has been sidelined with niggling hamstring and thigh problems for five months but was close to a return, but it is understood another hamstring injury means it is likely he has played his last game this campaign.The winger, who was born in Jamaica, broke into the Magpies’ first team this season under Alan Pardew, scoring his first senior goal against Crystal Palace in a 3-3 draw in August and then again against Manchester City in the Capital One Cup.His latest injury adds to Newcastle manager John Carver’s problems, who currently has Steven Taylor, Paul Dummett, Massadio Haidara, Chieck Tiote and de Jong all injured and top scorer Papiss Cisse suspended for another three games. 1 Rolando Aarons
The experts from Evolve Menswear, the number one menswear store in the north west, share the rules to finding a perfectly fitted suit.Prom or debs, depending on what part of the country you’re coming from, this Summer will be one of the first times you’ve donned a suit. We’re going to help you through the process with a quick and simple guide to your first suit.Here are two simple rules to get us started:A well-fitted suit makes all the difference.Stick to neutral colours, avoid anything too bold, you don’t want to look like these guys. The Anatomy of a SuitA suit consists of 5 pieces, a suit jacket, suit trousers, a dress shirt, a neck tie and shoes.Your suit jacket & trousers should match in both the colour and the texture. Try to keep the colours simple. Charcoal, navy & grey are good options as they are easily paired with other colours. Black is often another popular choice for prom suits, however, you’ll find it’s less versatile than the other colours mentioned.The Nitty Gritty The fit of a suit is arguably the most important thing of what separates a good suit from a bad suit. Your suit jacket should fit comfortably without feeling baggy or so tight it restricts your movement. The sleeves of your suit jacket shouldn’t go past your hands, and the shoulder seam should sit comfortably across your shoulder, not above or below it. As for length, your jacket should cover most of your trousers zipper, and all of your behind.Your trousers should be a slim straight fit. Again avoid anything too baggy or restrictive. It’s also good to keep in mind that trousers may have to be altered slightly to get the perfect fit.Your shirt shouldn’t match or clash with the colour of your suit. It’s best to stick to light colours like white, light blue or lavender.Your tie should match the width of your jacket’s lapel. Try to avoid colours & patterns that clash with your suit and shirt. Novelty ties are also discouraged.When it comes to shoes, it’s best to keep things simple. It’s hard to wrong with a pair of black or brown Oxford style shoes. Avoid fake leather, over the top designs, and box-toed shoes.Follow these simple rules to look sharp in your first suit, and most importantly don’t forget to have fun and enjoy your night!If you would like any fashion advice just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be glad to help!Keep up to date with Evolve Menswear on Facebook: www.facebook.com/evolve.menswearTwitter: @EvolveMenswearInstagram:@evolvemenswear Evolve Menswear: How to look sharp in your first suit was last modified: May 18th, 2017 by Evolve MenswearShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:evolve menswearFashionmens clothingoccasionwearsuit

Fianna Fáil Donegal Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill has labelled changes to the appointment process for Údarás na Gaeltachta as nothing more than ‘Jobs for the Boys’.Senator Ó Domhnaill confirmed that he has not sought a nomination to the new board of Údarás na Gaeltachta after democratic elections to the board was ended this year in favour of appointments by the Government.Senator Ó Domhnaill was first elected to Údarás na Gaeltachta in 1999 and re-elected in 2005. Nominations to the board closed at 5pm today. Senator Ó Domhnaill said: “Today I take the opportunity to call on the Minister of State for the Gaeltacht to appoint the new board members, not based on political affiliation or loyalties, but rather on the set of particular skills that they can bring to the new Údarás. It’s vitally important that the Government move away from a scenario of ‘Jobs for the Boys’ to one of appointments based on merit, ability and experience, irrespective of political affiliation or held beliefs.“I have not sought a nomination as I believe it would be contrary to my belief that democratic elections to the board should be held. Fianna Fáil has, at every turn, sought to have the democratic voice of Gaeltacht residents upheld. Unfortunately, however, the FG/Labour Government have put an end to the democratic opportunity of a voice at the ballet box and instead will appoint 12 members to the new board, through Ministerial appointment of 7 members with the 5 remaining members being appointed through the County Councils of Donegal, Mayo, Galway and Kerry while the Councils of Meath, Waterford and Cork have a rotating position.”Senator Ó Domhnaill continued: “Successive Governments since 1950s have recognised the need for a dedicated Regional Development Agency for the Gaeltacht. Stabilising the economic base through employment generation was recognised as the key to population maintenance and this, in turn, was recognised as the best foundation to achieve language maintenance and growth. This approach will be more important than ever in the challenging and determinative period that lies ahead.“The Government decision to end democratic elections to the Údarás board is hugely disappointing, there is a huge risk that vital voices in the Gaeltacht community will not be heard now.” MINISTER UNDER FIRE OVER ÚDARÁS APPOINTMENTS was last modified: August 16th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest In a year when record global wheat supplies depressed prices, U.S. farmers have struggled to compete in price sensitive markets. Exports of high protein U.S. classes, often the highest priced, are well ahead of last year but overall sales for all classes through April 9 were 24% less than a year earlier. As the 2014/15 marketing year progressed, a surge in the U.S. dollar helped further increase the competitive position of major exporters with ample supply and lower prices.The ICE U.S. Dollar Index is hovering around a 12-year high after increasing 22% in an 8-month period. A strong dollar makes U.S. products more expensive to global customers. U.S. wheat exporters believe the strong dollar, in part, is contributing to a slower sales pace. USDA projects 2014/15 U.S. wheat sales will reach 24.0 million metric tons (MMT), which would be well below the five-year average of 29.4 MMT and the lowest mark since 2009/10. With just six reporting periods left in the marketing year, total known U.S. exports and commitments equaled 23.7 MMT, according to USDA.Strong competition is also adding pressure to the export pace. There were quality issues throughout the world crop, but production volume reached a record level for the fifth time in seven years at 725 MMT. Several countries that most directly compete with the U.S. for market share are seeing strong sales. Canadian exports are benefitting from a second consecutive bumper crop and a significant easing of transportation issues compared to last year. According to Grains Canada, 2014/15* sales through April 12 were 14.7 MMT, 8% greater than the same date last year. USDA projects total Canadian exports will reach 23.5 MMT, which would be the most since 1991/92.Russian exports are also well ahead of last year’s pace despite government intervention. According to SovEcon, Russian wheat exports through March were 19.5 MMT, 27% greater than a year earlier. The agricultural analyst firm expects total 2014/15 exports will reach 21.5 MMT, which would be just shy of the record 21.6 MMT set in 2011/12. This would be quite a feat considering the Agricultural Ministry imposed an export tax on wheat in February, intentionally slowing exports in order to limit inflation and protect the domestic market. The ministry has signaled it may lift the tax on July 1.Last year, Brazil imported an unusually high volume of U.S. hard red winter (HRW) to help cover the insufficient supply of its Mercosur partner, Argentina. That continued into the start of 2014/15 with 1.53 MMT of HRW imports. Brazil has imported only an average volume of soft red winter (SRW) several months because improved Argentinian production in 2014/15 will allow for increased exports. USDA expects Argentina to export 5.5 MMT in 2014/15, which is nearly enough to fulfill the Brazilian import need of 5.9 MMT. According to the most recent data from the Global Trade Atlas, Argentina’s total sales through February of 1.89 MMT were nearly four times those of a year earlier. However, Argentina’s government still controls the export licenses for wheat and has yet to authorize the full 5.5 MMT.Despite a year of reduced exports, the U.S. remains the largest single-country supplier of wheat in the world. Lower sales mean there is more wheat in the bin, ready to supply our customers at any time.
