ZCF HAIR Style 16” 18” 20” 22” 24” 100% Real Human Hair Tape-In Human Hair Extensions Straight Hair 17 colors – I recommend a product of good quality

first_img Good quality, wish the strips were a bit wider. I waited about 3 months to post this review to see how the hair held up. I’ve never used tape ins before but have tried pretty much every other method including micro rings, nano rings, glue in, clip in, glue bonds and so on, but i’ve never been happy with them as you can still see the bonds. My hair doesn’t seem to grow on the sides on my head passed my chin so i like to fill in the gaps. After watching many youtube videos i got the technique down and started applyingthe hair was a perfect match to my hair colour so that was nice. The ends were quite thick, didn’t taper much like some do but i cut them by a couple of inches anyway so it doesn’t matter. There isn’t much shedding at all with this hair, i was very pleasantly surprised. The hair is soft and comfortable to wear. I did notice some dark coarse hairs but not that many. The hair lasted really well, the bonds were strong and didn’t damage quickly. I wore it for about 6 weeks or more before taking it out. The hair was still soft but the ends had suffered slightly from heat styling, they knotted up a bit more than when i got them and didn’t stay soft and smooth but i trimmed them and they were ok again. I dyed my hair slightly darker blonde once i’d taken them out and did the extensions to match. The extensions dye really well, stayed in good condition.

Nitrogen recommendations for wheat

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ohio State University recommends applying nitrogen between green-up and Feekes Growth Stage 6 (early stem elongation), which is generally the latter part of April. The potential for nitrogen loss will decrease by waiting to apply closer to Feekes 6; however, when we reach greenup, a common sense approach would suggest applying when field conditions allow application equipment, particularly since days available for field activities may be limited between greenup and Feekes 6. Having that green, actively growing, plant in the field does help in holding nitrogen in place.We still suggest following the Tri-State Fertility Recommendations for N rates in wheat. This relies on the yield potential of a field. Once you have set a value for your realistic yield potential, the recommendation may be based on the following table for mineral soils. Nitrogen rate for wheat by yield potential.Yield potentialTotal N ratebu/Alb/A6058758490110105120** 120 is the highest recommended rate. We do not give any credit for the previous soybean or cover crop, since we do not know if that organic N source will be released soon enough for the wheat crop. The Tri-State Fertilizer Recommendations suggests that you subtract from the total (spring N) any fall applied N up to 20 pounds per acre. When do we need to apply nitrogen to corn?Even though we promote the Tri-State Fertilizer Recommendations as the tool for setting rates for P and K, not so with nitrogen. Even at the time the Tri- State Recommendations were written the philosophy on N was changing. Today we no longer recommend nitrogen rates based on yield goal. Recommendations today are based on economics and research trials to mange this nutrient.The current tool for nitrogen recommendations in Ohio is the MRTN web-based calculator. MRTN (for the Maximum Return to N), also suggests the most profitable N rate: http://extension.agron.iastate.edu/soilfertility/nrate.aspx. The current recommendation for Ohio with a corn-soybean rotation is about 160 pounds of N per acre. Please go to the website and run your own scenarios. If you read the Tri-State Fertilizer Recommendations for N rates you see there are some efficiencies that can be gained and should still be valid today. I like these tips:For inadequately drained soils with high denitrification potentials, N should be either: applied in a split application; applied as anhydrous ammonia with a nitrification inhibitor; or concentrated in a band to minimize soil contact.Corn grown on coarse-textured/low CEC soils with high leaching potentials may benefit from split or multiple N applications.For soils with greater than 30% residue cover, the majority of applied N should be either: injected below the soil surface; dribbled in bands using N solutions; or broadcast only if the material contains no urea (i.e., ammonium nitrate or ammonium sulfate).No-till corn, corn planted into cold, wet soils, corn following anhydrous ammonia applied less than two weeks prior to planting, and corn following spring-tilled legumes or cover crops should receive some N at planting — 20 to 40 pounds of N per acre banded near the row.Many of these conditions apply to Ohio soils, so almost every field can benefit from a split N application.And when do we need nitrogen for corn? Some recent work at the University of Illinois shows that corn really doesn’t need much N until well into the growing season. This chart from an article on the www.ipni.net website, titled “Modern Corn Hybrids’ Nutrient Uptake Patterns”, shows when and how N is used by the plant throughout the growing season.This work shows that we can get to V8 or later without a lot of nitrogen. A delayed application of N is more efficient, and less likely to be lost. Lost N costs the farm money, and becomes an environmental concern.Take action on weedsThe United Soybean Board has developed some very nice materials to fight resistant weeds. Mark Loux our Extension Weed Specialist supplemented and printed several thousand of these packets for Ohio – they have been very popular at our winter pesticide re-certification training programs. The campaign to manage resistant weeds is called “Take Action” against herbicide resistant weeds. The website to get more information is http://takeactiononweeds.com. I especially like the Site of Action chart: http://takeactiononweeds.com/understanding-herbicides/site-of-action-lookup/.There are no new herbicides — not quite a true statement, as there are many new names — but it is the active ingredient that is important, the rest is about marketing the name. So the site of action chart will help determine the active ingredient in the commercial product. I still remember as we were discovering the resistant marestail across Ohio, a farmer told me he had the solution to his marestail problem. He had been using “Roundup” until he learned it didn’t work any more — so he switched to “Buccaneer.” Only to learn that Buccaneer has the exact same active ingredient as Roundup. This chart will help avoid those mistakes.last_img read more

Gattuso happy with improved Milan

first_imgGennaro Gattuso is impressed with AC Milan’s current brand of football and went on to praise the team after their win over Cagliari.With fellow top-four rivals securing wins prior to their clash, Milan knew anything less than a victory will see them in the seventh positionHowever, Gattuso’s men responded with an emphatic 3-0 win thanks to a Luca Ceppitelli own goal, followed by strikes from new boys Lucas Paquetá and Krzysztof Piatek to complete the rout.“We did well tonight, played good football and could’ve had more goals. I didn’t like the attitude of the midfielders in the first half, as we weren’t taking enough control,” the Coach told Football Italia via Sky.“I’ve liked our performances for a while and said we needed to get both phases right, attacking and defending. We were fortunate today.“Now it’s about hunger, the desire to work together as a unit. I don’t want to hear ‘I’ from anyone, it’s about ‘us.’“For many years we’ve reached the spring and Milan have been outside the race for the Champions League, but we need to break that trend and fight hard to be in a strong position when the final weeks arrive.Cristiano Ronaldo, JuventusSerie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….The former Rossoneri midfielder praised Calhanoglu for his effort on the flanks and his impact on the game.Way to go boys, determination begets success 👏🏼Bravi ragazzi, siamo sempre con voi 🔴⚫️#MilanCagliari pic.twitter.com/Rq2RB7Ii8s— AC Milan (@acmilan) February 10, 2019“I expect more from Hakan Calhanoglu because he has remarkable technique, but then you have to look at how much he runs, the distance he travels and the work-rate. I think he is unfairly maligned, I like the way he interprets that role.“He’s not a real winger, I know that, but he can unite the midfield with the attack and give a lot of quality to the side.”Milan will face fellow top-four rivals Atalanta in their next encounter on Saturday.last_img read more

The president also nudged back into Oscar memes when Keegan-Michael Key flew down from the ceiling like Mary Poppins, then tossed his prop umbrella aside because it couldn’t be closed. The scene reminded some of the president leaving an open umbrella outside Air Force One last fall. Women often complain about how their dresses don’t offer pockets, but Crazy Rich Asians star Gemma Chan even had pockets in her amazing fuchsia gown, and fashion fans had opinions. Some loved it, but one Twitter user noted, “At least Gemma Chan got pockets on her dress, makes it slightly less hideous.” Trump, and his hair  Wayne’s World! Wayne’s World! Party time! Excellent! The Academy featured a flashback to 1992 when Mike Myers and Dana Carvey took the stage and delivered some classic catchphrases from that comedy hit. The tie-in, of course, was the Wayne’s World scene where they headbang to Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody while riding around in a car.  Billy Porter dressed for the 3019 Oscars.
