first_imgThe axe officially fell on Tuesday — Salmon ports from Eureka to Gold Beach will remain off limits for recreational salmon fishing this year. Because of the historically low numbers of adult Klamath River fall Chinook, a lingering effect of five years of drought water mismanagement and poor ocean conditions, the PFMC reaffirmed their decision to officially close recreational salmon fishing within the California and Oregon KMZ areas.Fisheries to our south, which have far less impact on the …last_img

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Over the weekend we got two inches spread out over three days with no flooding and no ponding. It was an awesome rain. I think it will almost complete the corn and I think the beans are really soaking it up. We were really dry with all of the 90-degree heat. That rain was really a blessing. That is a money rain. It has been a good year with good timely rains.I hope the heat didn’t hurt us too much. I have some concerns with pollination. The corn looks tremendous, but did those 90-degree temperatures shave off of the top end yield? I think it might have but I think this will still be a really good corn crop.We’ve got gray leaf spot in the corn in some hybrids. I chose not to spray the corn for two reasons. One, I am hoping that corn is far enough along that it won’t be too yield damaging. Then I kind of thought that we missed the optimum date to spray the corn.In soybeans we have quite a bit of frogeye leaf spot. We sprayed over half of our soybean acres with fungicides. This is the first time I have sprayed for frogeye.The double-crops look as good as I’ve ever had. They came up and they had good heat and moisture and, with another two inches of rain on them, they look awesome. We’ve sprayed all of our beans with the herbicide and the only thing left we have to spray is the double-crop beans.We put a lot of compost down and we deep-tilled our wheat ground because we’d had some flooding on it. We worked that up, got the rain on it and I’m picking the cover crop up today to plant as soon as it is dried down and ready to go.We plant early soybean varieties to get the wheat planted as soon as possible. If you get your wheat in on time around the first of October it corresponds to good wheat yields. And we have gone with early- to mid-season wheat to get the wheat crop off, get the double-crops in and some of the early cover crops planted. We tend to lean toward early- to mid- wheat varieties.I hope everyone got a good bit of early contracting done. I don’t see much changing in the markets now before harvest. Hopefully we can harvest a good crop, store it and see what happens next year.last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Tony Nye is a man on a mission.A serious heart-related illness in late 2017 shook him to his core. It also convinced him that many farmers, both small-scale and large-scale, need to hear what he has to say.“I was as close to knocking on the Pearly Gates as possible before I turned the corner,” he recalled.After surgery, he lost both weight and strength and spent a month in the hospital.“I wasn’t able to return to the barns for almost six months,” he said.Those barns are on his 50-acre Fayette County farm, where Nye raises meat goats and purebred swine. The farm also includes some grain production, plus pasture ground for the goats.Luckily for the family, his then 17-year-old son was able to step in and care for the livestock during his Dad’s illness. That care included not only feeding and watering during the bitter winter weather, but also farrowing numerous pig litters and making important decisions related to animal health, finances and marketing. But Nye realizes that things could have ended up much differently.He plans to discuss the “what ifs” and the impacts it had on his family farm on Thursday, Sept. 20, at the Farm Science Review, an agricultural trade show held yearly at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center near London and sponsored by the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State University. His presentation on “Be Prepared if Tragedy Strikes on the Farm,” is set for 11 a.m. at the Small Farms Center tent.In addition to farming, Nye also works as the agricultural and natural resources Extension educator in Clinton County and is the statewide small farm coordinator for OSU Extension, the outreach arm of The Ohio State University and its College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences. Now eight months after his heart scare, he still has only returned to the office on a part-time basis.“Fortunately I am still among the living and our farm is still operating. Lots of decisions had to be made quickly and, honestly, we were not prepared,” he said.Nye wants farmers to realize that they aren’t invincible and to recognize the importance of family communication and contingency plans.“Tragedy can mean many things on a farm—everything from a barn fire and severe illness to a car accident, death or lost crop due to hail or a windstorm,” he said. “Any of these things can create financial and physical stress for the family.”When it comes to estate planning, farmers often only think about retirement and who to pass the farm to. Much more should be addressed, Nye noted.“Written directives are so very important,” he said. “They require communication and transparency among all family members.“If you don’t talk about it ahead of time, how can you plan for it?” Nye said. “I will discuss the whole thought process around ‘what if’ and preparing for the unthinkable.”Among the recommendations he will discuss are that families should:Recognize the critical importance of communication.Talk openly about the “what ifs.”Share with all family members the need for a plan in the event of a tragedy. Identify who will make the day-to-day decisions and other key people that should be involved. Is there someone who wants to keep the farm going?Understand each other’s role and performance expectations.Evaluate the situation from the standpoint of both financial and physical labor challenges. Have written goals and objectives to help guide necessary decisions.Draw up a will to help the family know what to do in the event of death.Consider a lawyer or tax preparer to discuss financial and legal decisions.Compile a list of the farm’s support network including individuals such as an attorney, veterinarian, insurance agent, seed and fertilizer dealer, neighbors, and even the local Extension educator.last_img read more

first_imgThe site also offers special “In Company” features which let you network among your work colleagues differently than how you network with persons outside the company. With your “In Company” connections, you may choose to reveal a relationship with a high profile contact that you would not share to others outside the company…or the other way around. Also, “In Company” users with Silver or Gold memberships can make unlimited introductions and information requests. Another unique feature is WhoDoYouKnowAt’s Contact Data Integrity Management option (CDIM). This allows you to control who has access to your current contact information. To set this up, you fill out both your current and formerly valid, but now outdated, contact information. When your data is matched with others’ contact lists, you’re automatically notified. If they still retain your old contact information, you can then choose to grant them access to your new information or ignore the notice without them ever knowing.Too Complex?These features are only scratching the surface of what WhoDoYouKnowAt has to offer. The site has been thoroughly thought through, with seemingly every scenario or use case accounted for. There are options like Prospect Lists for connecting with contacts at targeted companies, Alerts, Relationship Rankings, and a Productivity Center for managing your connections. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#Product Reviews#web According to Lee Blaylock, founder and CEO of new business networking site WhoDoYouKnowAt, many business executives are reluctant to share their contact information publicly. For this reason, a number of professionals are hesitant to network through sites like LinkedIn where you have to connect with your colleagues and then make those connections available to anyone wanting to use your connections for an introduction. WhoDoYouKnowAt flips this concept of business networking on its head, letting you control the level of access to your contacts based on who’s asking. To do so, WhoDoYouKnowAt offers a unique “Levels of Trust” system which allows your online relationships to more accurately reflect those in the real world. With each connection, you can set their “Level of Trust” to reflect your real life relationship. For example, when sharing a contact’s information with some folks, you can choose to remain anonymous. With your more trusted relationships, however, you can choose to share all your network information. For those close connections who you want to invite into your trusted network, you can invite them to “pair” with you, meaning you’ll mutually exchange all your contact information. Unlike with LinkedIn, you don’t “pair” (aka “friend” or “connect”) with all your contacts – just the designated trusted ones. sarah perez In fact, if anything, WhoDoYouKnowAt might be overly complex for a niche product that aims to address only the needs of heavy-duty business networkers who find LinkedIn uncomfortably open. (Just look at that chart! Click to maximize). We suppose that, for those folks, WhoDoYouKnowAt could be the perfect solution given all its levels of privacy and trust. However, for the everyday business professional, LinkedIn or even Outlook will probably still suffice…or these days, even Facebook may work. center_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

first_imgGeneva: Climate change may threaten the survival of of marine mammals such as dolphins, and have more far-reaching consequences for their conservation than previously thought, according to a study. In early 2011, a heatwave caused the water temperatures to rise to more than four degrees above the annual average, said researchers from the University of Zurich (UZH) in Switzerland. The extended period caused a substantial loss of seagrass, which drives the Shark Bay ecosystem, a UNESCO world heritage site in Western Australia. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USResearchers from UZH have now investigated how this environmental damage has affected survival and reproduction of dolphins. They used long-term data on hundreds of animals collected over a ten-year period from 2007 to 2017. Their analyses revealed that the dolphins’ survival rate had fallen by 12 per cent following the heatwave of 2011. Moreover, female dolphins were giving birth to fewer calves — a phenomenon that lasted at least until 2017, researchers said. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential polls”The extent of the negative influence of the heatwave surprised us,” said Sonja Wild, a former PhD candidate at the University of Leeds in the UK. “It is particularly unusual that the reproductive success of females appears to have not returned to normal levels, even after six years,” Wild said in a statement. There are several possible explanations for this phenomenon, for instance neglect of calves, increased newborn mortality, delayed sexual maturity or a combination thereof, but researchers have not yet been able to investigate them in detail. Interestingly, the heatwave did not have the same effect on all dolphin groups, researchers said. Dolphins that use sponges as tools — a socially learned foraging technique that helps dolphins to locate food in deep water — were not as badly affected as those that do not use this technique. “Nevertheless, our work raises concerns that such sudden events might have quite negative long-term effects even in groups of marine mammals that are known to adapt usually well to novel environmental conditions,” said Wild. The study shows for the first time that marine heatwaves not only affect organisms at lower levels of the food chain, but also might have considerable long-term consequences for the animals at the top, such as dolphins. “Marine heatwaves are likely to occur more frequently in the future due to climate change,” said study leader Michael Krutzen, professor at the Department of Anthropology at UZH. “This is worrying not only for the long-term prospects of marine mammal populations, but also for the entire oceanic ecosystems,” Krutzen said.last_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: Social media giant Facebook is raising minimum wages for contract workers to up to $20 per hour in the US, and said it is working on developing similar standards for other countries. The US-based company had drawn flak after reports of contract workers facing tough work conditions and getting low compensation came out. These reports suggested that some workers also suffered from post-traumatic stress. It conceded that its current minimum wages for contract staff may be insufficient to meet the cost of living in some of the places it operates in. “It’s become clear that $15 per hour doesn’t meet the cost of living in some of the places where we operate. After reviewing a number of factors including third-party guidelines, we’re committing to a higher standard that better reflects local costs of living,” Facebook Vice-President (Human Resource) Janelle Gale and Arun Chandra (VP of Scaled Operations) said in a blogpost. They added that the minimum wage has been raised to $20 per hour in the San Francisco Bay Area, New York City and Washington DC, and $18 per hour in Seattle. “We’ll be implementing these changes by mid-next year and we’re working to develop similar standards for other countries,” they said. The blog said workers in the US, who review content on Facebook, will receive even higher wages. “Their work is critical to keeping our community safe, and it’s often difficult. That’s why we’ve paid content reviewers more than minimum wage standards, and why we will surpass this new living wage standard as well. We’ll pay at least $22 per hour to all employees of our vendor partners based in the Bay Area, New York City and Washington, D.C,” it pointed out. Content reviewers in Seattle will receive $20 per hour, while those in all other metro areas in the US will get $18. “As with all people who do contract work, we’re working to develop similar international standards. This work is ongoing, and we’ll continue to review wages over time,” the blog said. In 2015, Facebook had introduced a minimum wage of $15 per hour; a minimum 15 paid days off for holidays, sick time and vacation; and for new parents that don’t receive paid leave — a $4,000 new child benefit. A year later, it asked its vendors in the US to provide comprehensive healthcare to all of their employees assigned to Facebook. The social media giant said all content reviewers – whether full-time employees or those employed by partner companies – have access to well-being and resiliency resources. “We’re working to make contracts across our Global Operations vendor partners consistent. This includes requirements like quality-focused incentives, no sub-contracting, overtime and premiums for nightshifts and weekends, and healthcare that meets the standards of the Affordable Care Act in the US and appropriate healthcare standards internationally,” the blog said. The company is mandating all vendor partners to provide on-site counselling during all hours of operations, and is also rolling out a resiliency survey — to be conducted twice a year — to all partner sites globally to “get a better sense of the needs of our reviewers”.last_img read more

Will Smith’s upcoming film is stirring up some controversy, and it hasn’t even hit theaters yet. The movie is called Concussion, and it’s reportedly causing the NFL a bit of a headache.The Sony biopic tells the story of Nigerian forensic pathologist Bennet Omalu, who discovered a degenerative neurological disease called chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE. The disease causes depression, dementia, and other behavioral changes in football players after repeated head trauma.Dr. Omalu presented his research to the press and the NFL in 2005 but was not met with open arms by the league. The NFL, instead, attempted to discredit his findings and allegedly blackball him in the science community.  It was an odd tactic, considering that Dr. Omalu specializes in neuropathology.Omalu’s discovery of CTE came after performing the autopsy of former Pittsburgh Steelers player Mike Webster, who publicly appeared to have gone crazy in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Though the NFL opposed Omalu’s work, a string of suicides by former NFL players—all of which were found to have CTE—brought his research to greater prominence and forced the NFL to acknowledge that concussions were an issue. A 2009 GQ profile on Dr. Omalu’s battle with the NFL, titled “Brain Game,” forms the basis for Concussion.  While there is some talk of Oscar buzz for Smith who portrays Dr. Omalu in the film, there’s even more buzz about how big of a problem the movie may cause for the NFL. Recent headlines suggest that the film delivers some serious blows to the league’s reputation, while a New York Times article published on September 1 claims that emails leaked during the big Sony hack reveal that the film may have been “watered down” by Sony executives in order to avoid rattling cages over at the NFL. However, Sony Pictures issued a statement to NBC on September 2, refuting those claims. “As will become immediately clear to anyone actually seeing the movie, nothing with regard to this important story has been ‘softened’ to placate anyone,” a spokesperson said.Dr. Bennet OmaluMeanwhile, the NFL has been doing some preemptive damage control, according to The Hollywood Reporter, welcoming any open dialogue the film may spark and holding a series of conferences and scientific strategy meetings on player safety in the months leading up to Concussion‘s release. “When something like this movie comes up and people want to talk about concussions or football or the future of the sport, that’s an opportunity for us to engage,” Jeff Miller, NFL senior VP of health and safety policy, said to The Hollywood Reporter.Miller even went so far as to say that the league would be happy to partner with Sony to raise awareness for concussion safety in the sport. “The studio hasn’t asked, and if they were to, and it gives us the opportunity to talk about the health and safety of our sport, we would do that, Miller added. That’s a much warmer reception than the NFL gave to Dr. Omalu. Neither Omalu’s name nor his research has been mentioned in any of the NFL’s recent statements. The NFL also effectively limited the reach of a 2013 documentary about Dr. Omalu and the NFL called League of Denial: The NFL’s Concussion Crisis. The organization allegedly pressured ESPN, initially a partner on the project, to back out of the documentary that was based on a book written by two ESPN reporters.Omalu’s work is important for all professional athletes, but particularly to the predominantly Black NFL and the young Black players who aspire to be in the league—athletes who need to be informed, protected, and treated for the disease that the NFL has tried to discount.Since his discovery of CTE in Mike Webster, Dr. Omalu has examined the brains of at least 16 other former NFL players, who each died by some self-inflicted injury, and found CTE in all of them. He has received the backing of many doctors and scientists outside of the NFL’s roster. Some of those scientists were even hand-picked by the league to conduct their own examinations of the brains and were subsequently ignored by the NFL when their findings supported Dr. Omalu’s.Regardless of whether the NFL acknowledges the validity of Omalu’s research, they certainly won’t be able to dismiss it after it is given such public treatment as a Hollywood movie. With at least 17 cases of CTE diagnosed in NFL players, 5000 ex-players who sued the league for damages resulting from concussions in 2013, and thousands more who are or will be affected by them in the sport, Concussion may be putting a necessary spotlight on the biggest issue facing the NFL. And Will Smith may just be putting on the most important performance of his career to-date. read more
