Governor Wolf Joins Front Lines in Battle Against Spotted Lanternfly July 16, 2019 Environment, Press Release Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today joined Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding and representatives from the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture (PDA), Penn State University, and USDA at a Harrisburg site populated with Spotted Lanternflies to view the treatment being conducted across the commonwealth.“Although Pennsylvania had the unlucky fate of being the first state in the nation to be visited by the Spotted Lanternfly, we faced that challenge head-on and have made incredible strides in containment and control,” said Gov. Wolf. “This is a team effort and all hands are on deck, committed to protecting Pennsylvania’s agricultural products, preserving our quality of life, and keeping commerce flowing here in the commonwealth.”Under the governor’s PA Farm Bill – a package of legislation designed to expand and protect agriculture infrastructure – the Pennsylvania Rapid Response Disaster Readiness Account will provide $3 million toward the containment of the Spotted Lanternfly. This is the second year in a row the governor has allocated funding in the state budget to increase spotted lanternfly detection, control, and eradication efforts. Over the past few years the administration has allocated more than $10 million to protect Pennsylvania business and agriculture. Additionally, USDA recently dedicated more than $6.2 million in new funding to Pennsylvania’s efforts.This May, PDA introduced the Spotted Lanternfly permit system to train businesses and employees on recognizing the life stages of the Spotted Lanternfly. Since then, the department has issued more than 900,000 permits to businesses that travel in and out of the quarantine area. Additionally, PDA and USDA teams continue to assess and treat high-risk properties, with survey teams scouting for insects across the state after receiving reports of sightings outside of the quarantine area. Penn State has taken the lead on conducting outreach and research.“Pennsylvania’s progress in controlling the Spotted Lanternfly is due in part to the historic partnership we’ve made with USDA and Penn State and the critical funding we received through the state and federal budgets,” said Sec. Redding. “However, it’s important that Pennsylvanians remember that they play a significant role in this fight. They can treat their property with approved sprays, band their trees, or even use something as simple as a fly swatter to help control populations right in their own backyard.”Businesses can obtain a Spotted Lanternfly permit at https://extension.psu.edu/spotted-lanternfly-permit-training. Homeowners with questions about treatment, including approved sprays, can learn more through Penn State Extension at http://extension.psu.edu/spotted-lanternfly.For more information on the Spotted Lanternfly, visit https://www.agriculture.pa.gov/spottedlanternfly.

Standard BJJ Gi If the other winner wants to sit and wait, feeling they already have a title shot set up, Mousasi should face the winner of a Nov. 27 fight with Derek Brunson (16-3) vs. Robert Whittaker (16-4). Round one was a clear Henderson round, as Henderson landed his last devastating “H-bomb,” leaving Bisping in a lot of trouble. Bisping survived the round , but that’s all he did. Up until the late round knockdown, Bisping was winning the round, which may have been why judges Andreas Gruner, Jeff Mullen and Andy Roberts all gave Henderson a 10-9 round. Had either Gruner or Mullen gone 10-8, they’d have had a draw scorecard. JIMI MANUWA – Manuwa (16-2), after taking out Ovince Saint Preux (19-9) in the second round, would seem to have limited options. He could face Alexander Gustafsson (17-4), who knocked him out in 2014. If Jon Jones is cleared and is put in a position where he has to get a win before getting the title shot, then Manuwa and Gustafsson would seem to be the best opponents. But if Jones isn’t getting a title match, Gustafsson, based on the first Jones vs. Gustafsson fight, would be the obvious one to make. UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping was a mess, having been knocked down twice, nearly finished once, his face rearranged, and with a huge swelling underneath his left eye. Henderson was almost unmarked when it was over. But Bisping took the unanimous decision at the Manchester Arena, essentially his home court. Timeline of Israel Adesanya’s Rapid Rise to UFC Contender Sale In doing so, he fell just shy of the only major goal that had eluded him – a UFC championship. Latest From MMA Warehouse But every score from 48-46 for Henderson to 49-46 for Bisping could be easily argued. More From Based on media scores from MMADecisions.com, 61 percent had it for Bisping, 22 percent had it for Henderson and 17 percent had it a draw, which was the way I saw it, with a 10-8 first for Henderson, Henderson taking round two and Bisping taking three through five. Video: Aalon Cruz scores ridiculous jumping knee KO on Contender Series Esther Lin, MMA Fighting Bisping, a star with the promotion from the start of his career in 2006 after winning the third season of The Ultimate Fighter, set one of the most important records of them all with his 20th win in UFC competition. He had previously shared the record of 19 wins with Georges St-Pierre. His 27 career UFC fights ties the record held by Frank Mir and Tito Ortiz, a record he’s a lock to get soon. His five hours, 48 minute and 20 seconds of total Octagon fight team is the second in UFC history, surpassing St-Pierre on Saturday. He’s being behind only Frankie Edgar at six hours, two minutes and 1 seconds. As with every close fight, there was some controversy regarding the decision, particularly when in the battle of “Who would you have rather been when it was over,” Henderson took a one-sided decision. MMA Fighting Dana White addresses contender status of Colby Covington, Leon Edwards, Corey Anderson Morning Report: Jorge Masvidal praises Conor McGregor: ‘The dude is a f*cking G, bro’ Which is More Dangerous – MMA or Football? Based on how MMA bouts are scored, the fight came down to three rounds, the first, the second and the fifth. Rounds three and four went to Bisping by 10-9 scores with little controversy, although the significant strikes in Round 4 were close. Nightmare Matchup for UFC’s Biggest Stars ProMax 440 BJJ GI Manuwa facing Glover Teixeira makes no sense, in the sense it could knock Manuwa out the position as a contender, while Teixeira’s losses would keep him still tough to market him right now as a contender. But there aren’t a lot of other options, with the best for now looking like Mauricio “Shogun” Rua (24-10) and Corey Anderson (8-2). But at 36, he needs to make that move. STEFAN STRUVE – At the age of 28, Struve (32-8) is the youngest name heavyweight in a rapidly aging out division.When you look at the size of Struve, who is 6-foot-11 1/2 and cuts from the mid 280s to make weight at 265, combined with ground skill that nobody of his height has ever showed in MMA competition, the visual is of a fighter who should beat everyone. But Struve still doesn’t use his size to his best advantage standing. And while he does have a 2012 win over current champion Stipe Miocic, he’s only 3-3 since that fight. There are two key fights coming up in November in the division, the Chris Weidman (11-2) vs. Yoel Romero (11-1) fight in Madison Square Garden on Nov 12, and the Luke Rockhold (15-3) vs. Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza (23-4, 1 no-contest) fight on Nov. 27 in Melbourne, Australia.. With the exception of Fedor Emelianenko, who never fought in UFC, Henderson could be strongly argued to be the greatest MMA fighter who never held a UFC championship. Henderson did win a UFC tournament in 1999. It was one of four such tournament wins in his career including a Brazilian Open tournament in 1997, a 32-man open weight RINGS tournament in Japan in 2000 and the Pride welterweight (today’s middleweight division) championship tournament in 2005. No fighter has won four tournaments with anywhere near that level of competition. With tournaments becoming less and less, it’s very likely none ever will. Latest From Our Partners It’s easy to cry hometown decision under the circumstances. Easy, but not accurate. Lockdown duffle bag Lets look at how Fortunes changed for five stars of Saturday’s show. One of the two winners, depending on impressiveness, health and marketability, would likely get the next title fight. Bisping has said he won’t defend against Romero, feeling he’s a drug cheat, and would most want to defend against Weidman. He’s already fought Rockhold twice, with them splitting wins. But for now it has too be a waiting game. Colby Covington rips ‘diva’ Robbie Lawler for leaving American Top Team over a photo King Ryan Longsleeve Shirt Dan Henderson was adamant Saturday night that he had finished his Hall of Fame career. Good Night Tee Gruner and Mullen gave round two to Henderson. Bisping was in control almost the entire round, but Henderson decked him with a right late. Greatest Highlights of Anderson Silva’s Career Apparel Henderson’s longevity as a major player is also unmatched by anyone other than Vitor Belfort. His holding championships in two weight divisions at the same time at the major league level is also something nobody else has done, with Conor McGregor battling to become the second next month. He was the oldest UFC championship contender, and came close to being its oldest-ever champion, which would have been a record extremely difficult to beat. Gordon Ryan Competition Kit Top Contenders for Fight of the Year More: Josh Barnett (35-8), Andrei Arlovski (25-13) and Travis Browne (18-5-1) would be the best next foe for him. Accessories While he didn’t leave the sport with the championship, Henderson finished his career with a Fight of the Night and a championship-caliber performance. This came after being written off by most as a top contender. It wasn’t the emotional ending that his prior fight, closer to home, with his family in the cage when it was over, brought him. Both men appeared to be in their best shape in years. Henderson, at 46, showed his mental toughness hanging in while clearly tired. Bisping showed championship mettle by surviving round one, which most fighters after being tagged the way they were, would not have. Standard Ranked Rashguard Brock Lesnar’s WWE Future After UFC Retirement Round five, with the fight on the line, was close. Bisping had a 22-16 edge in strikes landed , and all three judges gave him the round. On cards that had Henderson winning, this would have been the key round. None of the strikes were so significant or so deadly that they would overcome the Bisping numbers advantage like the round two knockdown did. But it was a close round, and Henderson did get the fight’s only takedown. Bisping got up quickly without sustaining significant damage. IURI ALCANTARA – Alcantara (33-7, 1 no contest), looked good both standing and on the ground in taking out Brad Pickett in 1:59. Two other recent UFC winners would make sense next in Andre Fili (16-4) or Chas Skelley (16-2). Should Frankie Edgar finally fight at bantamweight? Coach Ricardo Almeida weighs in Gloves MICHAEL BISPING – Bisping’s improbable middleweight title journey continues, but he’ll likely be an underdog in every championship fight going forward. ABC passes rule alteration to definition of grounded fighter GEGARD MOUSASI – With a win over Vitor Belfort, Mousasi (40-6-2) has to be considered the best of the contenders behind Bisping and the big four. He also has to be in a waiting pattern. He would also be best served waiting until the two November fights are over. His best plan would be to face the winner of the fight that isn’t facing Bisping for the championship, since that would put him in a clear title eliminator.
