Petrol was fed with a hose through a window into the kitchen of his apartment in the southern city of Kherson and was set ablaze while the front door was jammed shut. Yanovski, his wife and their child all escaped unhurt.“We are very shocked by the methods used in this attack,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It is clear the aim was to kill Yanovski and not just scare him, and the motive was very probably related to his work as a journalist We call on the interior ministry official responsible for the Kherson region to identify those who ordered this attack and bring them to justice, so that this kind of violence does not recur.”Yanovski recently wrote articles criticising two influential local businessmen, Vladlen Girin and Dimitri Bolbot. After Girin announced he was a candidate to be mayor of Kherson, Yanovski wrote about his alleged involvement in construction material fraud . Bolbot is a former Kherson municipal councillor who tried to seize 120 hectares of land on the Black Sea coast with the aim of building private cottages and selling them illegally. He was forced to abandon this project after many protests and newspaper articles, some of them by Yanovski.Yanovksi told Reporters Without Borders he had never been threatened in the past. He also said the police reacted quickly and seemed to be taking the case seriously.The interior ministry official in charge of the Kherson region, Mikhailo Yasselski, has ordered an investigation. The judicial authorities have also registered the attack as a case of “premeditated property damage by means for fire” under article 194-2 of the criminal code.

  • Growing Cauliflower

    first_imgMove over kale, cauliflower is the new king of the cruciferous vegetables.Popping up on menus, in food magazines and soon at farmers markets, cauliflower is set to become 2015’s ‘it’ vegetable. Sushi, pizza crust, Alfredo sauce, sloppy Joes and fried rice are just some of the foodstuffs people are making with cauliflower. While Georgians might not associate cauliflower with their Southern gardens, the early spring crop can be grown in Georgia with patience and time, said Robert Westerfield, a consumer horticulturist with University of Georgia Extension. Picking a VarietyThe first step is selecting which variety to plant, Westerfield said. Cauliflower comes in four colors—purple, white, green and orange—and two floret shapes—standard and spiraled. In order for cauliflower to develop the best color and flavor, some varieties need to be blanched, or have a layer of leaves tied around the head when the cauliflower is about the size of a baseball. In some self-blanching varieties, the leaves naturally grow around the head, protecting the cauliflower from the sun. Varieties that grow well in Georgia include:Snow Crown—White, 50 days to harvest and must be tiedImperial—White, 60 days to harvest and must be tiedCheddar—Orange, 68 days to harvest and self-blanchingGraffiti—Purple, 75 days to harvest and self-blanchingVeronica Romanesco—Green (spirals), 80 days to harvest and self-blanching Preparing the SeedlingsCauliflower should be planted as seedlings in March or, for a fall crop, in September or October. Seedlings can be grown or purchased from a local garden store. If growing seedlings, allow four to six weeks for them to sprout before moving them outside. Whether or not you purchase or grow seedlings, it is important to “harden them off” before they are moved outside. “Leave them outside for a few hours every day for three days. Leave them out overnight on the third day,” Westerfield said. They are then ready to withstand the outside temperature and go into the ground. PlantingWesterfield recommends planting a few cauliflower seedlings every week to lengthen harvest time. Planting all of the cauliflower at once means they will be ready for harvest at the same time. Cauliflower grows best in rich soil, so organic matter should be mixed in with heavy or clay soils for best results. The ideal soil pH for growing cauliflower is between 6.5 and 6.8. If you cannot test the soil pH, 1.5 to 2 pounds of 5-10-5 fertilizer should be applied per 50 square feet of garden area. After the initial fertilization, 1 pound of 5-10-5 fertilizer should be applied monthly every 50 square feet. Cauliflower needs at least six to eight hours of sunlight daily, so make sure to plant seedlings in a sunny area. Till the bed to a depth of 6 to 10 inches, incorporating 4 inches of good organic matter into the mix. Seedlings should be planted in rows 18 to 24 inches apart, with 24 inches between rows. Plants should be watered daily for their first week outside, then every four to five days as needed. Harvesting, Storing and PreparingHarvest the heads when they are between 6 and 8 inches in diameter. Cut at the base using a sharp knife. Once harvested, cauliflower stays fresh for up to a week in the fridge, or longer if blanched and frozen. Cauliflower’s texture makes it an ideal replacement for meat and starches in recipes. It tastes great and is high in vitamin C, vitamin B6 and fiber. For adventurous gardeners, cauliflower can be a rewarding new addition to the garden and can lead to many fun culinary experiments.

  • Oviedo ends Old Trafford hoodoo

    first_img Not since 1992 had the Toffeemen beaten Manchester United away from home. For 11 of those years, Moyes had been the man trying. Press Association If Moyes’ transition period has been difficult, Martinez has slotted into the Goodison hot-seat. Saturday’s 4-0 win over Stoke took them above their hosts in the table and they started with the confidence of a team that has lost just once this season. Lukaku was a menace, with even Nemanja Vidic finding his strength difficult to contain. The Belgian threatened the home goal at regular intervals, bringing one excellent save out of David de Gea after Vidic had been outmanoeuvred on the United left. De Gea also denied Kevin Mirallas and with Ross Barkley and James McCarthy also looking to profit from Lukaku’s industry, at no stage were United comfortable. It took them a good 15 minutes to exert any pressure, although after that they seemed to find space easy to come by without really doing much to exploit it. Evra fizzed a cross into the six-yard area and Ovideo made a vital last-ditch tackle on Antonio Valencia. Unsurprisingly though, United most dangerous moments centred around Rooney. The shot that cannoned back off a post had flicked off Phil Jagielka and Sylvain Distin before it reached its destination, and Howard did well to boot the rebound to safety before Shinji Kagawa could pounce. His failure to turn home Kagawa’s low cross shortly afterwards was a shock, even though it flew through a crowd of bodies, if only because of the form he has been in. Given a second chance, his instinct was right as he hooked the ball goalwards but the power was missing and Everton managed to clear. United began the second half with Evra launching a powerful drive goalwards. However, with Everton again taking charge, the natives were getting restless and saw the introduction of Nani and Adnan Januzaj after less than an hour. The move, which saw Valencia pushed into the right-back slot as Rafael and Kagawa made way, emphasised a lack of invention from United, although Nani blazing over not long afterwards was not exactly the intended response. In contrast, Gerard Deulofeu almost made an immediate impact after replacing Barkley but again De Gea stood firm. The flurry of activity that followed at the other end represented United’s best opportunity of the contest. But once Evra, Welbeck and Rooney had failed, the stage was set and Oviedo ensured Everton got the perfect finale. To rub salt into the wounds, Rooney’s booking after 61 minutes was his fifth of the season and he will now sit out the weekend clash with Newcastle. On Wednesday, with Sir Alex Ferguson watching on, Moyes’ Everton successor Roberto Martinez managed it at the first attempt. Oviedo, signed by Moyes last year, arrived with perfect timing at the far post to condemn United to their fourth defeat of the season, which leaves them 12 points adrift of leaders Arsenal and five off the Champions League places. And United could not say Everton did not deserve their success, for the visitors played with a confidence and verve their hosts could not match. Wayne Rooney struck a post and came close to netting a rebound before half-time. Former United keeper Tim Howard did brilliantly to repel a Patrice Evra header before Danny Welbeck headed the rebound against the bar after it. But this Red Devils outfit are a shadow of their former selves and chants of “sacked in the morning” from the gleeful Evertonians, who had waited 21 long years for this success, merely twisted the knife still further. It turned out Moyes was wrong when he predicted a mixed reception from the visiting fans. Instead it was almost totally negative. The Scot was booed when he first appeared in his technical area and was then sung a very short and abusive ditty, which confirmed 11 years’ service – when he restored Everton’s status as a top-half of the table team – counted for little compared to leaving Goodison Park, then returning for coaching staff and two players. As it happened, only one made the switch and with Phil Jones and Michael Carrick missing through injury, Marouane Fellaini returned to face his former club, still looking to score his first goal for the current one. Bryan Oviedo piled the pressure on David Moyes by slamming home an 85th-minute winner to end Everton’s 21-year Old Trafford hoodoo.last_img read more
