Indianapolis, In. — The Indiana State Board of Animal Health recently authorized a change to align bovine tuberculosis testing requirements with federal rules.The change, which went into effect back in July, requires dairy cattle entering Indiana to meet the same standard as other cattle and bison. In order to bring cattle or bison into Indiana, the animals must meet specific criteria based on their origin and destination. For example, cattle or bison 18 months of age or older from California must test negative for tuberculosis 60 days before entering Indiana.Bovine tuberculosis is a serious bacterial disease that can affect cattle, other livestock and even humans. I believe that aligning the requirements for bovine tuberculosis testing with federal rules will help prevent the spread of this disease and keep our livestock healthy.For more information on testing requirements, click here.

HOUSTON — Perhaps at some point, Draymond Green and Russell Westbrook will exchange some sharp words when the Warriors (46-21) visit the Oklahoma City Thunder (42-27) on Saturday. Those two players often consider that development both inevitable and necessary to fuel their competitive juices.As far as fans exerting that same behavior, though? Green found it completely unacceptable for a Utah Jazz fan to yell reportedly offensive and racist language toward Westbrook in a game earlier this …

Tiger Woods is famous for becoming the greatest golfer of the modern era, but what he isn’t known for humor. Well, not until Thursday’s game at the Presidents Cup.Apparently Woods was so funny that his partner, Matt Kuchar calls him Carlton after the character Carlton Banks – Will Smith’s nerdy cousin in ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”“I figured this guy was the perfect Carlton,” said Kuchar with Woods standing next to him.“Thank you very much,” Woods replied, with a smile.They’re so committed to the “Fresh Prince” bit that they even greeted each other–in front of cameras–doing the handshake that best friends Will and Jazz did when greeting each other on the show. Watch their rendition of it below.“I thought there was something a little extra,” Kuchar said. “Something fun to do. Baseball high-fives look like a lot of fun but look a little too complicated, so we went old-school with the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air — a little snap-back after you slap hands.”Kuchar went on to say:“It’s fun. I figure he’s kind of like Carlton, and we really had a good time doing it out there.”Watch how Smith and Jazz actually did the handshake in the video below.
Arsenal boss Unai Emery reckons it will be a difficult proposition to impose themselves on Manchester City when they trade tackles on Sunday.Teams like Leicester City, Crystal Palace and Newcastle have all adopted a defensive style and counter-attacking tactics to defeat Man City this season.But Emery concedes. Arsenal may struggle to take a proactive approach into the game at the Etihad.Impressive finish, @DenisSuarez6 👌Over five minutes of training footage now available on our @YouTube channel 📺— Arsenal FC (@Arsenal) February 1, 2019“Usually Manchester City, in every match they impose their style,” he told Sky Sports.“You want to impose your style, you want to play with your personality, but sometimes you need adaptation – more or less, it depends on the opposition.“It is tough to break their style and impose yours. When a lot of teams play with a profound block, it’s because they need to play like that and can also have chances to win.“Usually you can play ten matches against Manchester City – maybe Newcastle, maybe Crystal Palace, perhaps us as well – you can lose ten times playing the same, or possibly lose seven, draw two and win one.Report: Kanu makes bold claim about Pepe George Patchias – September 13, 2019 Former Arsenal superstar Kanu claims the Premier League teams fear Nicolas Pepe.The Ivory Coast international Pepe, made an 80 million Euro move to Arsenal…“But this style can work for you as Newcastle and Crystal Palace won against them.”Arsenal was thumped 5-1 at Liverpool in December as they tried to impose their style of play, but the former PSG boss claims he’s unfazed by the loss and will maintain his form.“They are two different teams,” he said of City and Arsenal.“Different manner of playing, but with a huge organisation, huge managers and also big players.“For example, the progress from Liverpool is significant progress, and now they are the favourites because they have the lead.“Maybe Manchester City is a different example because they paid a lot and maybe we can’t do that now like that, but our way is we can also do one way similar to Liverpool, similar to Tottenham.“Doing more with young players, using well players who can improve with us. And we are doing that. We need time, but also we need to be very demanding of ourselves to do that.”👔 @UnaiEmery_ put the squad through their final training session this afternoon📸 Here’s a look at what happened ahead of our trip to Manchester for #MCIARS— Arsenal FC (@Arsenal) February 2, 2019
