Published: May 24, 2017 6:46 PM EDT CLAREMONT, N.C. (CBS) A field of poppy plants that could be used to make opium was discovered in North Carolina and had an estimated value of $500 million, a sheriff tells CBS affiliate WBTV.Catawba County Sheriff Coy Reid said the only other opium poppy plant field found in the U.S. this year was in California.The acre of poppy plants were in rows, similar to how corn would be planted, in a field behind a home. He told the station samples were sent to a state lab to confirm the plants are in fact opium poppy, but added that little doubt remained that they were.“One of our narcotics investigators came to the house looking for something else. When he knocked on the door, the guy said, ‘I guess you’re here about the opium,’” the sheriff said.The sheriff’s office says Cody Xiong was arrested and charged with manufacture and trafficking by possession. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.Officials don’t think opium was being made on the property.“The plants are being harvested here, and sent somewhere else where the opium is being produced from the plant,” Capt. Jason Reid said told WBTV.Plants were being pulled up Tuesday and loaded into trailers. Authorities tell the Charlotte Observer that $500 million is a rough estimate of the value, because the plants still need to be weighed. The plants are expected to be destroyed.

The motorcycle industry is slowly shifting towards the rise of hybrid and electric motorcycles. Nawa Technologies are on board the same train but they want to do something a bit different. The latest Nawa Race e-bike concept was unveiled at CES 2020 and it features a world-first in the electric powertrain.Its so-called ‘hybrid’ battery combines the conventional lithium-ion cells with Nawa Technologies’ revolutionary ultracapacitors. If what they’re saying is correct, we are looking at an electric motorcycle that offers ten times more power and five times more energy. We’re talking 100hp and 0-100km/h in just three seconds. Top speed? 160km/h. Holy baloney.The hybrid ultracapacitor battery is said to drastically offer better energy efficiency, reduced overall charging times, and extend the life of the entire system. Nawa Technologies also stated that their latest system is applicable to any electric vehicle where it can benefit by reducing the size of the vehicle’s lithium-ion battery by up to 50% and doubling the range of driving/riding.The ultracapacitors are called NAWACap with the offering of just 0.1kW, the system boosts the 9kW lithium-ion battery located low on the chassis of the Nawa Racer e-bike. It may sound small but when paired with their state-of-the-art regenerative braking unit, the Nawa Racer is able to recapture more than 80% of energy and send it back into the battery.Unlike most electric vehicles or bikes, the Nawa Racer sits at just 150kg thanks to other additions like a carbon fibre frame and composite body panels. In a mixed riding condition, the Nawa Racer can easily cover 150km but thanks to the presence of a start-stop riding system, that distance is doubled when cruising in urban areas.The company also stated that the NAWACap ultracapacitors can be charged in just two minutes whereas the battery can reach 80% in just one hour from a home supply. All of these sounds too good to be true but if it does go into production, we won’t deny its physical prowess to dominate the market for electric motorcycles.–Ads–
Lucy Atwood scored eight first half points for the Bears (via JMPUK). Photo of the match: The next score came midway through the second half as Bristol Bears Women set up a driving line-out only five metres from the Lightning whitewash, and the hosts showed great patience as Clara Nielson eventually burrowed her way over the line to bring the Bears within one point.

Argentine outlet TyC Sports this week features an interview with Inter Milan striker Facundo Colidio. Signed by the Italian side from Boca Juniors in a €9m deal in 2017, the youngster is currently having a loan spell in Belgium, where he’s been featuring for St. Truiden.But Colidio could’ve had a different path in Europe. That’s because Premier League side Newcastle United got very close to signing him at the time he moved to Italy.The interest from the Magpies has been confirmed by the 20-year-old in the chat, which started with him explaining his departure from Argentina.“At Boca I was doing very well, although I was on the bench and the starter was Marcelo Torres. And this offer came to me. I couldn’t believe it, it’s the dream of any boy to play in a big in Europe,” Faculdo Colidio told TyC Sports.“It was very difficult to say no. If I rejected it, I wouldn’t forgive myself. The club understood it and had no problems, didn’t put obstacles so that I could leave.”Embed from Getty ImagesThen when asked if the attempt from Newcastle United was real, he’s confirmed it.“It was real. It was very close, but it ended up not happening because between the clubs they didn’t agree. And when closing the transfer window in England, this chance appeared.”Colidio has obviously been asked if he’d like to play for Boca Juniors once again in the future, since he could only feature for the youth levels during his time in Buenos Aires.“I managed to play twice in La Bombonera. One of them was a preliminary with a lot of people on the pitch and it was something incredible. I always say that I’d like to come back and fulfil the dream of playing in the Bombonera.”And finally, he was quizzed about staying at Inter Milan next summer, after his loan with St. Truden expires.“I hope I can, but that will be decided by the club. I’m for what they want. If they prefer that I add more experience, it’s welcome.”by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a Beautiful City and Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!

Marc Jurado moving to Manchester United was first reported by Catalan newspaper Sport on Thursday, which much annoyance that Barcelona are set to lose the La Masia youngster. Considered one of the best players in Barca’s youth system, the 16 year old right back had been predicted a big future at the club, with plans in place to move him through the club’s youth teams, and hopefully one day represent the first team.Contract offers were snubbed, and Manchester United swooped in to convince the defender his future would be better served in England.El Nacional, another Catalan news source, now also covers the move.They present it as fact, saying Jurado ‘has signed’ for Manchester United and Barca have lost another La Masia ‘pearl’. All they’ll get in return is training compensation.El Nacional believe the amount will be €1.5m, which is a higher figure than has been reported elsewhere, so perhaps there’s going to be some disagreement on that.However, that would have no impact on the transfer as Jurado would technically be signed as a free agent.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!

Cristiano Ronaldo has insisted that Real Madrid do not need to sign another striker in the summer transfer window.Jose Mourinho’s side have been linked with a number of forwards this summer, including Santos’ Neymar and Manchester City’s Emmanuel Adebayor, but Ronaldo is happy with the club’s current attacking options.“We don’t need to sign another forward. I think we should be happy with the line-up as it already is,” Ronaldo said during a press conference, according to ESPN.Real have already secured the services of Jose Callejon from Espanyol to bolster their attack, but Mourinho isn’t satisfied with his options up front just yet, despite Ronaldo’s comments, and is still hopeful of luring another forward to Santiago Bernabeu.Madrid initially seemed to prefer Neymar, but they could turn their attention to Adebayor again following Santos president Luis Alvaro Ribeiro’s remarks that the club won’t sell Neymar.Adebayor was on loan at Bernabeu for the second half of last season, scoring eight goals in 22 appearances, and has made known his desire to return to the club. Real are believed to be closely monitoring his situation and could make a bid in the region of €14 million for the striker. Source: Goal.com
