Yield Potential May Change As Season Wraps Up

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest After the Ohio Crop Tour last week, scouts came pretty close to agreeing with what USDA says Ohio has for what would be a record corn and soybean crop. In this week’s DuPont Pioneer Field Report, Field Agronomist Troy Putnam says there is still enough time left in the growing season for crops to put a little more on or take a little off of what is currently out there.

Really? A 50-year ban to self-driving cars in New York?

first_imgBreak the Mold with Real-World Logistics AI and… An organization representing professional drivers has called on New York state legislators to ban self-driving vehicles for 50 years, citing the potential eradication of thousands of transport jobs.The Upstate Transportation Association, which advocates for professional drivers, said it expects Uber and Lyft, the two major ridesharing services in New York City, to convert to driverless cars in a few years.See also: Uber self-drives over to Arizona after dumping California“It doesn’t do anything for the local economy to have driverless cars,” said John Tomassi, president of the Upstate Transportation Association to CNN. “I’m sure there’s a little bit of job creation, but nothing that will match the number of jobs lost.”The Independent Drivers Guild, which represents 45,000 of New York City’s professional drivers, said it will fight for the state to keep its current self-driving laws. That means a full ban on all driverless vehicles.Governor in favor of driverless cars?Governor Andrew Cuomo recently pushed for wider legalization of ridesharing services in the state; the services are currently only available in New York City. Neither the legislature nor the governor have given an opinion on self-driving, though we suspect, like most other tech-centric states, they approve of it.The adoption of self-driving cars could reduce traffic accidents by 90 percent, according to Google. Other advantages include a possible reduction in parking space, as cars could be sent on errands by owners or used by other members of the family.It is up for the legislature and the people of New York to decide whether less accidents and parking is worth the loss of thousands of transportation jobs. Some states, like Michigan and Arizona, are pushing ahead with legislation that legalizes self-driving vehicles.

10 months agoThornley exclusive: Phelan perfect for Solskjaer at Man Utd

first_imgThornley exclusive: Phelan perfect for Solskjaer at Man Utdby Andrew Maclean10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLife as Manchester United manager has started well for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Two wins from two matches. 8 goals. Paul Pogba in fine form. A palpable excitement now reverberating through Old Trafford.A sizeable task lies ahead of Solskjaer to lead United into the top-four, but it is one that will be helped considerably by the presence of assistant manager Mike Phelan.That is according to former United winger Ben Thornley, who works as analyst for MUTV and has intimate knowledge of the club’s inner sanctum.Phelan has spent fourteen of his 23 years as a coach at United, five of which he served as Sir Alex Ferguson’s number two.It is a role the 56-year-old now fills for Solskjaer, who has two stints at Molde and an ill-fated spell at Cardiff City on his coaching resume.And Thornley thinks Phelan’s experience and coaching nous will greatly benefit the Norwegian in what will be the biggest six months of his management career to date.He told TribalFootball.com: “I feel as though Mike Phelan is a guy that was at the club a long time before his departure and he worked as a coach under Sir Alex Ferguson. [He’s] a very, very trustworthy man, a very calming influence in the dressing room.”He’s not somebody who screams and shouts he knows the club inside and out and he’s a very knowledgeable coach. I think the club can only benefit from having somebody like Mike Phelan and his experience amongst the ranks.”Solskjaer will try and make it three wins from three when United host Bournemouth on Sunday afternoon. With Arsenal facing league leaders Liverpool, United could potentially close to gap to fifth place to just three points by the end of the weekend.

first_img​AC Milan and Inter unveil concept designs for new stadiumby Ian Ferrisa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveAC Milan and FC Internazionale have unveiled the shortlisted concept designs for the new Milano Stadium together with plans for an urban redevelopment project for the surrounding San Siro area, reports www.fcbusiness.co.uk”The Rings of Milano” by Manica/Sportium consists of two iconic rings, interlocked and set apart in perfect balance, symbolising the story of how two clubs, forever in opposition, and now united in their cause to preserve one of Milano’s most storied traditions.The stadium’s iconic linked rings accommodate both LED and architectural solutions for branding and team changeover between matches. The new Stadium of Milano is carefully integrated into a broader masterplan development that will revitalise and transform San Siro into a park and entertainment district for the people of Milano to experience year-round, preserving the original pitch’s location and reimagining it as a gift to the community for all to enjoy. “The Cathedral” by Populous draws inspiration from two of Milano’s most iconic buildings; the Duomo and the Galleria. In fact, a sunlit galleria encircles the stadium enveloped by an elegant glass façade. The Cathedral has been designed to create a unique home for the fans and supporters with bespoke installations. The stadium is designed to be the most sustainable in Europe: the galleria is naturally cooled and passively heated, photovoltaic panels line the stadium roof, and all rainwater is collected from the roof and reused. The stadium is surrounded by 22 acres of green space, which reduce water runoff. TagsSerie A NewsAbout the authorIan FerrisShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Giuliana and Bill Rancic Named Honorary Chairs of National Womens Survivors Convention

first_imgThe Women Survivors Alliance is excited to announce that Giuliana and Bill Rancic will serve as honorary co-chairs for the Second Annual National Women’s Survivors Convention.This one-of-a-kind event designed to honor and inspire cancer survivors will take place Thursday, July 31 – Saturday, August 2, 2014 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee.Giuliana Rancic is one of the world’s most credible and well-known entertainment journalists and can be seen nightly as anchor of E! News. A breast cancer survivor, Giuliana created “Fab-U-Wish,” a program to grant fashion, beauty and celebrity themed wishes to women battling this disease. In addition to co-hosting the event, Giuliana will step into a familiar role along the red carpet as host of the convention’s Red Carpet Live Pajama Party. See what it’s like for the world’s top celebrities to be on the other end of Giuliana’s microphone.“While we cannot control what life brings us, we can control how we react,” says Giuliana. “This is where we find the strength and power to persevere and succeed.”Bill Rancic burst onto the national scene when he was hired by Donald Trump as the winner of the first season of NBC’s breakthrough program The Apprentice. Bill is one of the most sought-after motivational speakers on the topics of entrepreneurship and business. He educates and inspires audiences by sharing the lessons he’s learned throughout his business career.“Life’s experiences make us who we are. Accept this, embrace this and use this to create the world you want and the world you deserve,” says Bill. “If you do this, nothing can stop you.”The couple’s hit reality show, Giuliana & Bill, will continue with the season six premiere, July 16th, on Style Network. Giuliana and Bill’s unique combined perspective provides audiences with a stimulating, candid, provocative and inspiring conversation from both sides of the aisle.Founded by the Women Survivors Alliance, the National Women’s Survivors Convention aims to establish a network where women affected by cancer can find their voice, improve their quality of life and embrace their new normal.Thanks to tremendous strides in research, more of us are now beating the beast called cancer. In fact, there are over 7 million women cancer survivors in this country. But a cancer diagnosis is a life game changer. Survivors must address the long-term and life limiting effects of the illness and its treatments including physical, emotional, psychosocial, legal and financial issues. Survivorship, and the recognition of the many challenges survivors face following treatment, is the cutting-edge theme in the world of cancer. It is clear that the time has come to move survivorship to the forefront of the conversation about cancer and Giuliana and Bill exemplify that movement.Also for 2014, participants can expect even more celebrities, cutting edge researchers, cancer-based organizations, networking opportunities, the Celebrate Survivors 5k and the opportunity for a night out downtown. Returning favorites include the Survivors Marketplace Expo, and their Glamville makeovers.Space is limited, so reserve your spot at www.SURVIVORVILLE.org.last_img read more

Football 5 plays that mattered in Ohio States 6214 win against Maryland

Sophomore wide receiver Binjimen Victor (9) runs the ball during the Ohio State game against Maryland on Oct. 7 at Ohio Stadium. The Buckeye won 62-14. Credit: Sheridan Hendrix | Oller ReporterNo. 9 Ohio State trounced Maryland 62-14 Saturday in Ohio Stadium. Though the Buckeyes had the game in hand by halftime, there were several plays that were particularly important in the moment.Here’s the five plays that mattered most in Ohio State’s victory against Maryland.Johnnie Dixon 35-yard gainOn its first drive with 12:49 on the clock in the first quarter, Ohio State faced a third-and-4 at the Maryland 44-yard line. Quarterback J.T. Barrett fired a strike past two Maryland defenders to redshirt junior wide receiver Johnnie Dixon for a first down, and Dixon ran down the field to the 9-yard line.Ohio State scored three plays later on a Barrett rush. Third-down conversions like that will become more crucial with an increasingly difficult level of competition in the coming weeks.Victor first-quarter TDBarrett’s confidence in his arm and receivers has notably improved since Ohio State’s Week 2 loss to Oklahoma. One of his best passes of the day was a third-and-6 strike to sophomore wide receiver Binjimen Victor in the end zone with 7:14 remaining in the first quarter.On a skinny post route, the 6-foot-4 Victor fought off a cornerback to reel in the throw, which Barrett fit into a tight window from 8 yards. With his frame, Victor is the ideal target for third-down passing situations close to the end zone. If Barrett can fit those throws in there consistently, Ohio State’s offense will continue to find success.Jerome Baker scoop-and-scoreOhio State’s defensive line had arguably its best game against Maryland, and it started early with 9:54 on the clock in the first quarter.On Maryland’s third play from scrimmage, defensive end Nick Bosa drove Maryland quarterback Max Bortenschlager to the ground and caused a fumble. Linebacker Jerome Baker picked it up and took it to the end for an early 13-0 lead.Baker’s 4th-down sackThe Ohio State offense sputtered in three straight drives — a blocked field goal, a J.K. Dobbins fumble and a 22-yard punt — before Baker made a crucial stop at 6:30 left in the first half.Maryland’s offense stayed on the field for a fourth-and-3 at the 30-yard line. Baker came untouched on the right side of the line to sack Bortenschlager, forcing a fumble in the process and giving the offense some momentum for its next three drives, which all ended in touchdowns.Hubbard stop and third-and-1Leading 27-7 with 4:15 remaining in the first half, Ohio State continued its dominance on the offensive line with a tackle for loss on third-and-1. Maryland running back Ty Johnson had no room to run up the middle, so he attempted to bounce outside where defensive end Sam Hubbard played contain and cut down Johnson in the backfield for a 6-yard loss, forcing fourth down. Ohio State marched 48 yards in four plays, taking all of 52 seconds for another score. read more
