Harvest Rolls on in East Central Indiana

first_img By Andy Eubank – Nov 2, 2014 Home Indiana Agriculture News Harvest Rolls on in East Central Indiana SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Harvest Rolls on in East Central Indiana SHARE Previous articleNational Recognition for Indiana FFA ChapterNext articleGas Prices Dropping Below $3 for the First Time Since 2010 Andy Eubank Dave Lowe harvestLast week there were some minor setbacks in Indiana harvest because of rain but it didn’t keep farmers away for very long. Going into the weekend Dave Lowe, who farms in Jay County, said bean harvest wasn’t quite to the halfway point.“I’m running beans right now and they’re 14.5%, ground conditions aren’t terrible but there’s a lot of beans over in this area to cut yet,” he said. “I would say we might be still be 40 percent, so a lot of beans to cut yet. Yields have been in the 40’s to the high 60’s on our farm. Our early beans got hurt bad but we’re thankful for what we’ve got. We even got some late hail and the field I’m running in now had 20 percent hail on it.”But that field is still producing 41 bushels per acre. The hail came 4 weeks ago and Lowe said there were a lot of beans on the ground before he even got to the field. Corn yields so far are not quite up to what he expected.“The moisture is in the mid to high 20’s what we’ve shelled. The yields are anywhere from 180 to 220 and we had a farm average last year of over 220.”Lowe told HAT last year’s early season crop emergence was excellent but this year it was wet early, limiting the crop potential.“And it stayed wet so that hurt us. We had to dribble on quite a bit of our nitrogen, probably about half. We did some studies a couple of years ago and late application is better than no application obviously, and that was proven. We’ll see what happens this year but I think part of was just the timing of that nitrogen application.”Hoosier Ag Today brings you the latest from the fields across Indiana with Crop Watch – brought to you by Trupointe Cooperative and Winfield Solutions – now open in Milford.last_img read more

Drug task force is starved of funding

first_imgLimerick on Covid watch list NewsHealthPoliticsSocietyDrug task force is starved of fundingBy Staff Reporter – March 15, 2019 1443 Maurice Quinlivan TDTHE National Drugs Strategy is doomed to fail if the necessary funding is not made available to tackle the heroin epidemic that’s affecting parts of Limerick City.That’s according to local Sinn Féin TD Maurice Quinlivan who is also a member of the Mid-West Regional Drugs and Alcohol Forum (MWRDAF).Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Speaking on a motion on Local Drug and Alcohol Task Forces in the Dáil last Thursday, Deputy Quinlivan said that the National Drugs Strategy was doomed to fail if the necessary funding was not made available to tackle the huge problem across parts of Limerick City.“The reality is that heroin, alcohol, gambling and the misuse of prescription drugs are causing huge problems across Limerick city.“Limerick is without a detox centre which leads to having a huge waiting list for services, while leaving staff under huge pressure to deliver basic services,” Deputy Quinlivan added.“There are many addiction groups in Limerick who are having a very positive effect on people’s lives, however they are starved of funding as the MWRDAF is not properly resourced”.Referring to local groups that are funded by the MWRDAF, Deputy Quinlivan explained that the community substance misuse team deals with young people with addiction problems. The Northstar Family Support Project deals with families who are affected by a family member’s substance misuse.The Limerick City Community Network, which is a voluntary group comprising people across all communities in Limerick City, are also supported by the local task force.“I also mention the probation and linkage in Limerick scheme, the Ana Liffey Drug Project, the Saoirse addiction treatment centre and Novas Initiatives, all of which are doing great work in Limerick”.He explained that since 2008, the Mid-West Regional Drugs and Alcohol Forum had taken cuts of more than 50 per cent.“These cuts have negatively impacted and prevented the delivery of drug and alcohol services that are urgently needed in Limerick and across the entire mid-west region”.“The failure to properly fund the Local Drug and Alcohol Task Forces demonstrates the government’s indifference to the damage and devastation that drugs cause to people, families and communities.“This is simply not acceptable. It is unsustainable and for that reason the problem is getting worse,” he added.Acknowledging the important work being done by the 24 drug and alcohol task forces throughout the country, Minister of State Catherine Byrne said that she established a working group to revise and update the handbook for task forces last year. This is due to be completed by next June.“From this process we will have a new code of governance for task forces, in line with best practice in the community, voluntary and charitable sectors, and my Department will support its implementation in 2019.“The revision of the task force handbook is an important step in the development of a performance measurement system, and an implementation plan to operationalise such a system will be developed by 2020.“The HSE oversight responsibilities of drug and alcohol task forces to ensure that service provision meets identified needs and that there is accountability and transparency for public money provided by the Department of Health.“I have invited the task forces to a meeting in the Department of Health at the end of the month to begin this process”, Minister Byrne said.This year I also intend to develop two new schemes to deliver an integrated public health approach to drugs and alcohol, as set out in the national drugs strategy. The first will provide targeted, appropriate and effective services for young people at risk of substance abuse, focused on disadvantaged areas, while the second will support evidence-based approaches to mobilising community action on alcohol. Both schemes will have funding of €250,000 on a multi-annual basis.by Miranda [email protected] Email Linkedin Twitter WhatsApp Long gynaecological waiting lists must be addressed– Maurice Quinlivan T.D.

FIR also seeks investigations into the possibility of deterioration of his mental health and eventual suicide pursuant to the said conspiracy”.Nikhil Kapse, Senior Inspector, Bandra Police Station filed the affidavit on behalf of Mumbai police after both Rhea Chakraborty and Central Bureau of Investigation filed their respective affidavits in the criminal writ petition filed by Priyanka Singh and Meetu Singh for quashing of FIR registered against them.Rejecting the claim of the petitioners that the impugned FIR is a counter blast by respondent no.2 (Rhea) to the FIR filed by father of petitioners which is being investigated by CBI, Mumbai police has contended-“The impugned FIR dated September 7, 2020 after its registration was forthwith transferred to CBI for investigation. Mumbai police is neither carrying out investigation under the impugned FIR, nor have taken any coercive steps against the petitioners.”It is further alleged-“I say that the petitioners are also indirectly trying to seek review of the observations by the Supreme Court finding the earlier inquiry by the Mumbai police satisfactory, after perusing the entire material collected by them and placed on record in sealed cover. Such an attempt is being made by various false and unsubstantiated allegations, which are vehemently denied.”While the FIR registered by Mumbai police is for offences punishable under Sections 420, 464, 465, 466, 468, 474, 306, 120 B and 34 of IPC read with sections 8 (1), 21, 22 A and 29 of NDPS Act. The earlier FIR registered in the State of Bihar under sections 306, 341, 342, 380, 406, 420, 506 and 120B of IPC, is neither against the same accused persons nor alleging same version or conspiracy, Mumbai police has argued. The 20-page affidavit states-“Therefore the registration of the impugned FIR against the accused petitioners is not violated of fundamental rights of the petitioners under Article 21 of the Indian Constitution. As per provisions of section 154 of CrPC and the legal position well settled in this regard by the apex court, the police officer was duty bound to record the FIR on receipt of information of commission of cognizable offence, and there was no embargo on such registration as claimed by the petitioners or otherwise.”The respondents have relied upon the following decisions of the Supreme Court on issues relevant to the case-(i) Kari Choudary Vs Sitadevi and ors (2002)(ii) Amitbhai Anilchandra Shah Vs Central Bureau of Investigation and ors (2013). (iii) TT Anthony Vs State of Kerala (2001). Upkar Singh Vs Ved Prakash (2004).The affidavit also states-“There is no infirmity in registering the impugned FIR on disclosing the commission of cognizable offence. On the contrary it was statutory obligation under section 154 of CrPC to register the impugned FIR.The contentions of the petitioners or CBI deprecating the registration of the impugned FIR are completely devoid of merits. Police officer or State cannot be faulted for abiding by the aforesaid unambiguous directions of the apex court.”Asserting the difference between the two FIRs, Mumbai police contends that although both FIRs are on the death of Sushant Singh Rajput but the conspiracy alleged and the version alleged therein are totally different. In its affidavit, CBI questioned Mumbai police’s decision to register FIR in the case instead of forwarding Rhea Chakraborty’s complaint to them pointing to the Supreme Court’s order directing transfer of investigation in FIR registered at Patna by Sushant Singh Rajput’s father to CBI.Mumbai police responded to the same-“Apparently the Supreme Court had in its wisdom not only provided for registration of any other FIR at Mumbai, but also directed CBI to investigate such a new case on the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, so that the latter case too gets investigated by CBI without requiring consent from the State of Maharashtra. Accordingly, after its registration the impugned FIR was forthwith transferred to CBI for investigation without taking any coercive steps and without investigating the allegations levelled in the FIR.”Next Storylast_img read more

Springtime transition in upper mesospheric temperature in the northern hemisphere

first_imgAirglow emission observations by the wind imaging interferometer (WINDII) on the Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite and three optical ground-based stations previously revealed a “springtimetransition” in atomic oxygen. The transition is characterized by a rapid 2-day rise in the night-time oxygen nightglow emission rate by a factor of 2 to 3 followed by a subsequent decrease by a factor of 10 in the same period of time indicating a depletion of atomic oxygen that persists for days. The current study examines signatures in the upper mesosphere temperature field (70– height range), derived from the WINDII Rayleigh scattering observations, which may be associated with this springtime depletion of the atomic oxygen. Comparisons with ground-based OH airglow rotational temperatures, Na lidar and Rayleigh scattering lidar temperatures, and meteor radar temperatures at middle and high latitudes in the NorthernHemisphere are presented and discussed. Data from the northernspringtimes in 1992 and 1993 are reported upon in detail. It was found that all datasets used in the study agree well with each other taking account of the day/night time mean differences. A rapid temperature enhancement was observed at spring equinox at northern midlatitudes followed by a period of mean temperature colder than the one observed prior to the enhancement event, a pattern similar to that associated with the “springtime transition” observed in the oxygen emissions. The enhancement was also revealed in the average annual temperatures at , obtained by combining observations from 1992 to 1996, and in more recent temperature data from 1998 and 1999 at mid- and high northern latitudes. The results suggest that the temperature enhancement is associated with the last stratospheric warming event, observed at the end of March and early April.last_img read more

McDermott, Schneider Electric and io consulting join forces

first_imgThe three companies will combine their capabilities and resources to explore and develop a proof of concept based on an offshore platform reference case McDermott, Schneider Electric and io to develop net zero upstream facilities. (Credit: C Morrison from Pixabay) McDermott International, Schneider Electric and io consulting announced a collaboration to advance research and design of carbon-neutral facilities for the upstream oil and natural gas market. The three companies will combine their capabilities and resources to explore and develop a proof of concept based on an offshore platform reference case. The result of the collaboration will be published in a joint study on Net Zero Upstream Facilities before the end of the year.The study defines a hierarchy of emissions-reduction technologies, ranked by maturity, investment and impact to enable operators to make informed decisions when prioritizing areas for emissions reduction.“This unique venture demonstrates the valuable intersection of thought leadership, digital innovation and project excellence to advance the energy transition across the globe,” said Samik Mukherjee, McDermott’s Group Senior Vice President, Projects. “By combining our individual strengths, we will deliver solutions that enable our customers to accelerate the industry-shared goal of reducing carbon impact throughout the production chain.”The program directly supports a significant carbon footprint reduction within the production and transformation of oil and gas, which, according to the International Energy Agency, is about fifteen percent of the entire oil and gas carbon footprint.“We are in an energy transition and while hydrocarbons will be required for decades, it is incumbent upon us to decarbonise their production,” said Richard Dyson, CEO of io consulting. “This study will show what can be achieved when we leverage the technical data and expertise of our parent companies, Baker Hughes and McDermott, and come together with the best minds in the industry to address this challenge. I look forward to working with our customers to deploy new standard practices for net zero facilities and transferring our learnings to other industries striving to reduce their carbon footprint.”The companies expect the collaboration to demonstrate what is achievable with current technology, what new technologies are required and identify break-even carbon pricing to make the net zero facilities viable now and in the future. The team will adapt this proof of concept to any geographical region and project, considering local infrastructure and environmental policies regarding carbon pricing.“This partnership aligns with Schneider Electric’s objectives around sustainability and energy transition,” said Chris Dartnell, President of Oil & Gas and Petrochemicals at Schneider Electric. “We bring our expertise in both energy and process efficiency to the industry. Our goal is to help customers ensure their future systems support remote operations, optimized asset performance and breakthrough micro-grid management. We believe our partnership facilitates overall digital transformation for our clients—making their operations more sustainable.”The study applies a decision-quality framework to identify credible and achievable methods for achieving carbon neutrality including: power import and electrification; renewable micro-grids; integration with hydrogen networks; integrated energy storage; reduction of fugitive emissions; removal of flare systems; facility de-manning and access method; facility monitoring and control – remote operation; engineered offsetting methods (excluding nature-based offsetting); and digital transformation of design and operations.
