Thousands of jellyfish have swarmed to the shores next to the giant seaside Paiton coal-fired power plant in Probolinggo regency, East Java, for the second time in half a decade, reportedly because of cooling waters near Australia.The plant’s operator, state-owned electricity company PLN, said on Wednesday that the jellyfish were spotted near the plant’s 4 by 400 megawatt (MW) Units 1 and 2 on Saturday. PLN said the invertebrates remained in the area until Tuesday morning.“This is normally due to weather changes. Looking back at 2016, when cold weather blanketed Australian waters, these sea creatures migrated toward the Java Sea and Madura Strait,” PLN corporate communications head I Made Suprateka said in a statement.The Paiton plant, which has a total installed capacity of 4,700 MW from nine units, is one the largest coal plants in Southeast Asia. The facility is operated by PLN’s power generation subsidiary, PT Pembangkitan Jawa Bali (PJB).Thousands of jellyfish swim in waters near the Paiton coal-fired power plant on Saturday. The plant’s operator, PLN, said on Wednesday that the jellyfish likely migrated from colder waters near Australia. (PLN/PLN) (PLN/PLN)PJB general manager for the two units, Mustofa Abdillah, added that employees had installed nets to prevent the jellyfish from entering Paiton’s water intake canal and water pumps. The installations are used to channel water inland to cool down the facility. He said the management had also borrowed seven local fishing ships to capture and release the jellyfish into open waters.“Looking back at our experience in 2016, we were better prepared this time,” said Mustofa.The company added that the Java-Bali electricity supply remained secure, as the island’s interconnected electric grid allowed other plants to replace the power supply should Paiton suspend operations.Topics :

by Barry WilnerAssociated Press Writer CANTON, Ohio (AP)—Jerry Rice and Emmitt Smith can stop the chase now.Linked as the NFL’s leading receiver and rusher, two of the greatest players football has seen, entered the Hall of Fame Aug. 7. Both admitted their destinies are fulfilled.“This is finally it,” Rice said. “There are no more routes to run, no more touchdowns to score, no more records to set. That young boy from Mississippi has finally stopped running. Looking as fit as any current All-Pro, Rice admits he made one major mistake during that unparalleled career. “My single regret about my career is I never took the time to enjoy it,” he said. “I was always working.“I was afraid to fail. The fear of failure is the engine that has driven me my entire life. The reason they never caught me from behind is because I ran scared. People always are surprised how insecure I was. The doubts, the struggles, is who I am. I wonder if I would have been as successful without them.”Rice was successful from Day 1 in the NFL, rising from the obscurity of Mississippi Valley State to win three Super Bowls and change the game forever. He was humbled by the conclusion Saturday night.“I can honestly say this is the greatest team I have ever belonged to,” Rice said.Smith began choking up during a one-minute standing ovation as he stepped to the microphone as the final inductee. He immediately praised Walter Payton, the man he surpassed as rushing king, and recognized the two other Hall of Fame members of the Cowboys’ Triplets, Troy Aikman and Michael Irvin.And he broke down when saluting his former fullback, Daryl Johnston. “You took care of me as if you were taking care of your little brother,” Smith said through wet eyes.Smith rushed for 18,355 yards, with 164 touchdowns, 11 seasons with 1,000 or more yards on the ground, and 78 games with 100 yards rushing. Smith made the hall in his first year of eligibility and won three Super Bowls, taking MVP honors in the 1994 game.“When I go into the hall today, I am not going in alone,” Smith said. “I am carrying my grandfather, I’m carrying my father and I’m carrying my son along with me because I bear all their names. Now I can say to my dad and my son, EJ, our name will be forever enshrined in the history of football.”While Rice and Smith were immediate selections for the hall, LeBeau finally was inducted after a 32-year wait.“Man, this really is a great day to be alive,” said LeBeau, elected by the senior committee.LeBeau was chosen for his 14-year career as a cornerback with the Detroit Lions, in which he had 62 interceptions, still eighth overall. He’s best known as an assistant coach, the mastermind of the zone blitz. Currently the defensive coordinator of the Pittsburgh Steelers, LeBeau singled out his players who sat in a corner of Fawcett Stadium.“I am being inducted as a player and believe me that makes me most proud,” said LeBeau, at 73 the oldest coordinator in the NFL. “I did that for 14 years. but for the last 38 years I have been a football coach.“They are here,” he added, pointing to the Steelers, who he helped win two Super Bowls in the last five seasons. “That’s just about the highest compliment ever paid to me in my life.“I wouldn’t want to be here without you: offense, defense and special teams.”The players stood in applause and fans in the crowd whirled Terrible Towels in tribute.He was immediately followed on the stage by Randle, who as an undrafted defensive tackle with the Vikings and Seahawks accumulated 137½ sacks in 14 seasons, most for anyone at that position.Randle made six straight All-Pro teams (1993-98) and was chosen for seven Pro Bowls. He had a league-high 15½ sacks in 1997. “I am so humbled by this incredible honor which I never thought was possible. I’m a small-town kid whose dream came true.”Grimm was called the “Head Hog” by former Redskins offensive line coach Joe Bugel. From 1981-91, Grimm led the Hogs and helped the Redskins win three Super Bowls. He is the first member of that memorable line to make the hall.“It’s a privilege to play in the NFL,” said Grimm, now the assistant head coach of the Arizona Cardinals. “ It’s an honor to be selected here in Canton.He called the Hogs “a group of guys that grew together, worked together, rose families together” and said he would have their names embroidered on the inside of his gold Hall of Fame jacket.Jackson, one of the most versatile linebackers in league history, is the first New Orleans Saints player to be enshrined. Jackson made six Pro Bowls with a combination of strong run defense and a tenacity that led to 128 sacks. He helped turn New Orleans from ’Aints to a division winner for the first time (1991), and finished his career with the 49ers, winning a Super Bowl in January 1995.“I think I deserve to be up here,” Jackson said. “Football always has been my life. I see that in these guys up here (onstage), how they carried themselves. They set the standard.”Little was a star running back for the Denver Broncos from 1967-75 despite being the only offensive threat on the team. He had to wait nearly three decades since becoming eligible before getting elected. One of football’s most dynamic runners during his career, Little also was a dangerous punt and kickoff returner. In a relatively short career, he had 12,157 all-purpose yards and scored 54 touchdowns. “There are no words to describe the joy of experiencing this chapter, the highest honor…everything else pales.”In a powerful induction speech, he also encouraged people to say “Yes I can” throughout their lives and noted he had “given the best I’ve got.” CLASS OF 2010—The 2010 Pro Football Hall of Fame class. From left: Emmitt Smith, Dick LeBeau, Russ Grimm, John Randle, Rickey Jackson, Jerry Rice and Floyd Little after enshrinement ceremonies at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio Aug. 7. LEGENDARY DUO—Jerry Rice, left, and Emmitt Smith share a moment after being elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Feb. 6. On Aug. 7, they were inducted together in Canton, Ohio. “Let me stand here and catch my breath.”An hour later, Smith tried to hold back his tears as he reflected on his unequaled career.“Most people only dream,” Smith said. “I not only had my childhood dream, I did everything I could to fulfill it.“You know what, I am now the all-time leading rusher. ‘Wow. What an honor.”Rice was the man who took away everyone’s breath during an incredible 20 years and was one of seven NFL greats to enter the shrine as the Class of 2010. It is one of the strongest groups ever inducted, also including John Randle, Dick LeBeau, Rickey Jackson, Russ Grimm and Floyd Little.Rice holds every important pass-catching record as the game breaker in the West Coast offense for the San Francisco 49ers. In becoming the top target in the pro game’s most dangerous scheme, he established marks that might never be broken.Rice caught 1,549 passes, more than 400 beyond anyone else. He gained 22,895 yards, more than 7,600 ahead of second place. He scored 208 touchdowns, easily shattering the previous record. He made 10 All-Pro teams, was chosen for 13 Pro Bowls, and made receptions in an almost-unimaginable 274 consecutive games.Yet, he says, at 47, “I still believe in my heart I could play today.”

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest John Thomas recently returned from the 2018 Commodity Classic in Anaheim, Ca. with new ideas for his work as a teacher in Tolles’ Ag Bioscience program.Established in 1974, Tolles is a career and technical school providing a launch pad for both high school students and adult learners located south of Plain City. Tolles serves Dublin, Fairbanks, Hilliard, Jonathan Alder, London, Madison-Plains and Jefferson Local school districts. Tolles’ 223,000 square-foot facility boasts instructional and functional labs, academic classrooms, an auditorium and conference center, as well as a fully-operational restaurant, hair and nail salon and spa, small animal care facility, automotive repair and maintenance center, digital media lab, community preschool, medical and fire labs, and many other career spaces.Thomas teaches Environmental and Advanced Life science classes at Tolles main campus, and teaches Tolles’ satellite Ag Bioscience program housed at Fairbanks Middle School. This program is one of many for students who have an interest in agriculture and environmental science including Outdoor Careers program on Tolles’ main campus and FFA at Fairbanks High School.Thomas was invited to attend Commodity Classic through GrowNextGen, an organization that has created a network of educators who do work with soybeans and the Ohio Soybean Council. This event gave science teachers a chance to learn from experts in the field including researchers and farmers.While at the Commodity Classic, Thomas followed Monsanto’s “Journey of the Seed,” and learned how favorable traits can be added through biotechnology to produce a more successful crop. Monsanto provided each teacher with both GMO and non-GMO soybeans, and Thomas plans to use these during a classroom lesson on GMOs.“The area of biotechnology is exploding right now. When we think about tech industries, we usually think about digital technologies such as coding or robotics,” Thomas said. “However, advancements in biotechnology are happening just as fast. With the advent of CRISPR (a family of DNA sequences in bacteria that has been used to modify genomes) there are many start up biotechnology industries that are coming out of nowhere. We now have the ability to quickly modify genes in a way that is similar to computer coding.”In addition to acquiring valuable lessons to bring back to the classroom, Thomas was also exposed to new technological advancements in the field of biotechnology and agriculture. Additionally, Thomas had the opportunity to meet and network with teachers from California and across the country with whom he shared curriculum connections and best practices, further deepening his content knowledge to bring to his students.“The goal of my program is to open student’s eyes to the world of sustainable agriculture,” Thomas said. “We are trying to produce food using best management practices. I love working alongside my students to solve real-world problems.”GrowNextGen has reached more than 20,000 teachers and 500,000 students in Ohio and beyond. The program brings agriculture science to the classroom, joining industry and teachers by providing real-world educational tools to engage the next generation workforce. Backed by funding from the Ohio Soybean Council and Ohio soybean farmers, GrowNextGen helps expose students to different career fields in a thriving industry.For additional information about Tolles call 614-873-4666, email [email protected] or visit www.tollestech.com.
