first_img Facebook Twitter Home News Feed Wells Fargo Indiana Weather Forecast 3/30/2015 CORN WeatherThe Corn Belt will see slightly better temperatures over the next two weeks than what we saw as we finished out last week. OK…that is an understatement…we will see much better temps over the Corn Belt than what we saw last Friday and Saturday. However…most of the region east of the Mississippi River will be normal to below normal for the coming two weeks, while areas west of the Mississippi will be normal to above normal. The next (and hopefully last) push of very cold air comes as we finish their week, with temps Thursday, Friday and Saturday going below normal (although we are not looking at all 3 days below normal…just a progression of the cold air from NW to SE over those days). The extended period is shown to be fairly wet, although we think the model that is showing that is likely well over done. Right now, we like a snapshot of the first half of the month that may end up with most areas under .75” total (through the 15th), and then a potential drier push after that. Temps, though, still stay mostly normal to below.Slightly drier weather over the next 10 days in Argentina. A couple of weak fronts bring rains up to half an inch total (for the period) across all key crop areas. Heavy rains will stay well west near the mountains. This drying forecast still has enough moisture to finish crops off, but will the kind of forecast that truly helps increase talk of bigger crops in Argentina.Southern Brazil sees a little bit of a discrepancy from south to north over the next 10 days. RGDS gets some rain, but has a wide range, from .25” 10 day totals up to nearly 2”. From Santa Catarina up through Paraná, we see rains of 1-2 inches. In Sao Paulo…we can see some 3 inch rain totals combined for the period. This means there is plenty of moisture around…but…it only comes in 2 waves…today through tomorrow, and then from Saturday through next Monday. The rest of the period will be drier.Rains just keep coming in south China. We likely will see headlines of major flooding in China over the days ahead, with some models showing 15 inches of rain or more in come of the central provinces. A few of these are also in the southern part of the main grain areas, like Hubei and Anhui…but in general, most of the ag areas sig more in the 1-2 inch rain totals. Far north wheat areas get 10 day totals of .25”-1”. This moisture will continue to be well received…although the massive rains just south of the corn and bean areas will be what everyone talks about.SOYBEAN WeatherThree quick moving systems move through the Deep South and Lower Delta this week, each bringing .25” to 1” rain potential, then next week a slower moving, stronger system can bring 1-2 inch rain potential. Combined, it looks like we have plenty of moisture that will likely slow planting progress again over the region, although there will be some windows of opportunity this week for some. Coverage this week is likely 70%, next week will be 90%.Two frontal systems work through Brazil bean areas in the next 10 days, bringing half to 1.5” rains. Heat based rains are still a possibility in between systems, as scattered showers and thunderstorms pop up in the afternoon…but they are becoming less frequent over the region. Temps nearly normal.WHEAT Weather For HRW, rains in TX-OK Wednesday of this week will be in the .25”-.75” range, coverage at 50%…mostly skewed to the central and eastern parts of the states. Thursday, a very strong front sweeps through the plains and will put rains up to 1.5” in over eastern NE and eastern KS. However, western parts of the plains see no rain from that event.  Mostly dry then through the end of next week. A front toys with the region around the 9th, but mostly misses, and a similar pattern is likely for the 12th.Good moisture around over SRW areas through the next 2 weeks. There will be more action in southern areas than north, but everyone gets rains. Systems this week come through tonight/tomorrow morning in the north, Thursday-Friday region wide, Monday night-Tuesday next week region wide, and then potential events for the 9th-10th, 12th, and 14th. Total moisture can be in the half to 1.5” range, although we expect the lower end of the range in most areas, and the upper end only in areas closer to and south of the OH River.The weather pattern continues to show good frontal action coming out of Eastern Europe. We have 10 day rain totals up to 1.5” over most of western FSU countries, including Ukraine, as at least 2-3 fronts move in between now and the 8th. Farther east, though, the moisture diminishes quickly…with the central region looking at only 50% coverage of rains over 1.2” and the southern region only 30% covered. The Volga region and Kazakhstan both see moisture under a quarter of an inch for the full 10 day period.Rains start tonight in Western Australia, and then models continue to add rains over the next 10 days there. Better rains don’t start to pick up over eastern wheat areas in NSW and Victoria until this weekend, and we only see scattered showers in between over South Australia this week too. However, next week, more rains in all locations, meaning we can see 10 day totals of 1-3 inches over wheat areas in Western Australia, NSW and Victoria, and .25”-1” totals over South Australia wheat areas. March may finish like a lamb after all. High pressure is in today, and while we do have a little precipitation that may try and fire off overnight tonight through tomorrow, amounts will be relatively small, and the way it comes through will be low key. However, we are embarking on a slightly damp start to April, with moisture tonight and tomorrow, then another system for Thursday-Friday, and then one for Monday Tuesday of next week. Then in the extended period, we have one for the 9th-10th, the 12th, and the 14th. None of the systems look to be too over the top, with mostly a quarter inch or less, although the GFS model brings slightly bigger moisture potential in for the extended period, as is its bias. Here is how it all breaks down.Today should feature good sun with temps finally working back to within a few degrees of normal. However…we do not expect above normal temps. Precipitation overnight tonight through tomorrow will be mostly .05”-.2” with coverage at 40%, mostly north of I-70. The southern half of Indiana stays dry, as this is an off shoot of a low that is passing over the Great Lakes.Dry Wednesday and the first part of Thursday. A front passes late Thursday through Friday that brings .1” to .9”. Coverage will be nearly 90% across the state, but we will skew the higher end of the range of precipitation to the far southern extent of the state…most of the state will likely end up with just a few tenths, if that. Temps fall off with that front, as we look for Easter weekend to start well below normal, perhaps even finishing there. However…Easter Sunday should be dry, and at least partly sunny.We can see another .1” to .6” over the state with about 50% coverage from late Monday night (6th) through Tuesday. This time, a bit portion of central Indiana may be on the outside looking in, with the better precipitation well north and well south. Temps continue to be within a few degrees of normal, but mostly to the below normal side.In the extended period, we have the GFS model brining half to 1 inch rains for the 9th and 10th, third to half inch rains for the 12th, and quarter to half inch rains for the 14th. Our thought is that these rains are about 2x to big at this point…as this model usually way overstates rain potential in the extended period. However, on the timing, the system for the 9th and 10th looks good to us…with lesser confidence in the two others. We also look for the pattern to go much drier in and around this time frame…with a below normal precipitation bias through the rest of the month. Also…keep in mind that with our current forecast through the 14th…we are not really going to be racking up the big rain totals…a large part of the state may  make it to the 15th with .75” or less of total moisture for the month. That is the stat we will be watching closely.While we look for a general below normal bias on temps…we think the extreme cold pushes will be limited to what we see late this week going into Easter weekend…and even those should not be as cold as what we saw this past Friday and Saturday. The sun angle is just getting to strong to support those kinds of temps. Overnight lows will be low enough, though, to keep soil temps from running up to fast.

Moreover, it has also been stated that a specially dedicated Covid Care Hospital is being established at Ahmedabad with an availability of 900 beds and oxygen facilities. The development came on an affidavit filed by the State of Gujarat on Tuesday in the suo motu proceedings initiated by the Bench of Chief Justice Vikram Nath and Justice Bhargav Karia taking stock of the surge in COVID-19 cases in the State. Stating that while the testing is being done in very district of the State through RT-PCR, TrueNAT and CBNAT machines, the affidavit provides that the same was not possible at Taluka or Nagarpalika level wherein the expertise in testing analysis is not available. On Covid Testing The State Government has informed the High Court that the State Health and Family Welfare Department has requested all private laboratories to enhance their testing capacity for which the government and corporations have given their support to the staff of private labs in order to maximize their output and reduce the time lag in delivering reports. On the figures of testing, the affidavit reads thus: “It is respectfully submitted that State government has developed the state wide network of testing centers for COVID 19. As on Date, total 98 COVID testing laboratories are functioning, out of which 43 are Government and 55 are private laboratories. At present every district in the state has RTPCR TESTING FACILITY, either through RTPCR machines, or TrueNAT and CBNAT machines. The RTPCR reports from each of these machines is of equal efficacy.” Furthermore, the Government has also stated that as far as testing in district level is concerned, the Government has decided to “additionally put up RT-PCR machines in all the 33 districts and immediate measures have been undertaken for the same.” “Presently, as on the 18th April 2021, 1,73,000 tests are carried out on daily basis as against 1.45,000 stated in the affidavit dated 14th April,2021 . Hence, number of testing per day has been increased drastically from 33271 tests on 1st March 2020 to 1,73,000 tests on 16th April 2021. Between the 1st of April to the 18th of April 24,69,625 number of tests are carried out across the state of which 9,70,236 are RTPCR tests.” The affidavit reads. On Drugs and Logistics, Availability of Remdesivir and its Administration The State Government has also apprised the Court that while a short supply of the injection has taken place causing anxiety to the public, great efforts the state government is managing to procure, a daily stock of approximately 20,000 vials of 100m1 Remdesivir injections. “Subject to the availability thereof and as per the priority evolved, the patients admitted in State government hospitals are been considered first followed by the patients admitted in the private hospitals and Covid Care Centers. Baring a minimum emergency stock, the entire stock received is being utilized for treating needy patients. As regard to the usage of such injection in the private sector, it needs to be noted that private hospitals, private persons have been purchasing these drugs directly from wholesaler/ stockists and licensed pharmacies. The State Government taking every possible proactive steps to procure from any and every source, as many injections as possible so that it can be administered to the needy on a priority basis” the affidavit reads. Providing the figures, the affidavit states that roughly on an average, the government is managing to procure 20,000 injections and that the Government has already placed orders for procurement of 5,74,000 number of 100 ML vials of Remdesivir during 1st to 18th April 2021. Highlighting that the State Government has taken serious actions against the hoarders and black marketers of the injection, the affidavit provides thus: “Police Department in co-ordination with Food and Drug Control Authority are vigilant and keep an eye on any illegal stocking or trading of this injection. State has also established a mechanism to provide Inj. Remdesivir to private hospitals from Government Hospitals at purchase price.” On Physical Infrastructure, Availability of Beds and Occupany The State Government has further informed the High Court that the State government is pro-active and extremely conscious of its responsibilities to make the best infrastructure available to its people. “It is respectfully submitted that as on 18tt of April, 2021, there are 79444beds are available for COVID 19 patients in different 1590 institutes in entire state.” The affidavit states. Informing that a fully equipped, dedicated Covid Care Hospital, of 900 beds with oxygen facilities, is being established at University Convention Centre, GMDC, Ahmedabad, the affidavit further provides that: “In association with Defense, Research and Development Organization (DRDO) of Home Department, Government of India as a pilot project.

first_imgDuring a period of extremely quiet solar wind conditions from 8 to 10 March 1997, strong activity was observed by the Southern Hemisphere Auroral Radar Experiment Super Dual Auroral Radar Network radars in the Antarctic premidnight ionosphere. This activity took the form of quasiperiodic flow bursts with ionospheric drift velocities exceeding 2 km s−1. Data from the Satellite Experiments Simultaneous with Antarctic Measurements (SESAME) automated geophysical observatories in Antarctica and Defense Meteorological Satellite Program and Polar satellites are used with the radar data to study the convection flow in the southern polar ionosphere at the time of these flow bursts. The study shows that the bursts occurred with an approximate period of 12 min. Their direction was westward, and they were superimposed on a background westward flow. In the premidnight sector this is interpreted as a flow associated with dipolarization of the magnetotail tail field. There is a band of strong particle precipitation associated with the flow bursts. The location suggests that they occur deep in the magnetotail and cannot be associated with any lobe reconnection. They are at a latitude near the region where a viscously driven convection cell is expected to exist, and their sense is that of the return convection flow in such a cell. The results suggest that there is an internal magnetospheric mechanism for sporadic energy release in the magnetotail that need not be associated with changes in solar wind reconnection on the magnetopause.last_img read more

first_img Shell will make the job cuts by the end of 2022 (Credit: Photographic Services, Shell International Limited) Royal Dutch Shell plans to cut up to 9,000 jobs as part of a major restructuring effort tied to its aim of being a net-zero energy company by 2050.The measure – which affects around 10% of the oil major’s workforce – is designed to remove “organisational complexity” from the business and achieve annual operational cost reductions of up to $2.5bn.It puts Shell on a similar footing to that of UK-based rival BP, which earlier this year said it would cut up to 10,000 jobs as part of its own restructuring plan to become a more agile company focused on clean energy and services rather than oil and gas exploration and production.Shell chief executive Ben van Beurden said in a statement: “We are doing this because we have to, because it is the right thing to do for the future of the company. We have to be a simpler, more streamlined, more competitive organisation that is more nimble and able to respond to customers.“We have looked closely at how we are organised and we feel that, in many places, we have too many layers in the company: too many levels between me, as the CEO, and the operators and technicians at our locations.”The Netherlands-headquartered firm said it will make between 7,000 and 9,000 job cuts by the end of 2022, inclusive of around 1,500 people who have agreed to take voluntary redundancy this year.It did not say in which areas of the business the layoffs will be focused. The oil giant is undertaking a major restructuring as it responds to the financial impact of coronavirus and embarks on a strategic shift towards clean energy Shell is restructuring its business as part of clean-energy pivotShell has undertaken a major review of its business operations in recent months as it seeks to reposition itself as a clean energy company and neutralise its carbon footprint by 2050.The financial impact of coronavirus on energy markets – particularly in the oil and gas sector – has added further pressure to reduce costs.“A large part of the cost saving for Shell will come from having fewer people,” said van Beurden.The oil major reported an 82% year-on-year drop in adjusted earnings in the second quarter of the year to $638m, not including a $16.8bn impairment charge due to a downwards revision of its long-term commodity price outlook.That followed a decision to cut its dividend in the first quarter of 2020 for the first time since the Second World War.Shell warned further impairment charges in the range of $1-1.5bn are expected in its third-quarter results, due to be published at the end of October.The oil major also provided an update on its operational performance in the third quarter of 2020, noting that upstream production is expected to be between 2.15 million and 2.25 million barrels of oil equivalent (boe) per day.This includes an impact of up to 70,000 boe per day as a result of hurricanes that have swept the Gulf of Mexico in recent months, forcing production operations to be suspended.Sales of oil products are expected to be between four and five million barrels per day (bpd), down from 6.7 million bpd a year earlier.Shell added that trading and optimisation results will be lower than the historical average, and “significantly lower” compared with the second quarter of 2020 when profits from this area of the business helped it avoid posting a loss.The company’s share price jumped 2.3% in early trading, but these early gains have since reduced.last_img read more

first_imgThe Property Ombudsman (TPO) has revealed how it has been working with the Law Commission to produce a report that heavily criticises retirement property landlords for charging hidden leasehold fees when properties are sold or sub-let.The fees involved as called ‘event fees’ and over costs “buried deep” in leaseholds and then charged when there is a Transfer of Title or Change of Occupancy – and even when a spouse or carer moves into a property.Agents are also highlighted in the investigation, which has been conducted over two years and shines a light on how many retirement properties are sold. It has now been presented to parliament and the Law Commission says it is now awaiting a response from the government.Landlords criticisedTPO backs the Law Commission’s stance that the fees help offset the often substantial cost of the extra on-site healthcare services many retirement home developments offer, but criticises many landlords – and agents – for not highlighting the fees at the point of sale.“Owners are not always being told about the charges, which can be up to 30% of the property price,” the Law Commission says.“Others may be hit by huge bills for changes to occupancy, even when a carer moves in to look after the owner or where they have to move into a nursing home and sub-let their property to cover costs.”In the report the Law Commission says that agents should already be aware of the problem of ‘transfer fees’ because the “code of practice for residential estate agents has recently been updated to deal with event fees,” it says.Code updated“We recommend that the code of practice for residential estate agents should be updated again to include reference to checking the central database for the disclosure document.”“We will work with TPO to achieve this. We will also work with TPO to provide guidance to estate agents and to raise awareness of the new code provisions among members of all redress schemes.”The Law Commission says it now urges the Government to regulate the sector through amendments to the Consumer Protection Act 2015 and bring in a new code of practice to make these fees more transparent, stop unexpected fees and allow a right to challenge unfair fees.It also says that an online database for estate agents and consumers should be set up “to ensure that event fee information is included in all advertisements”, it says.The report was compiled with other organisations including NAEA Propertymark and RICS.Read the full report.leaseholds Law Commission retirement property The Property Ombudsman April 3, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
