USDA Research Shows Moisture Benefit of No-Till Farming

first_img SHARE USDA Research Shows Moisture Benefit of No-Till Farming By Gary Truitt – Aug 30, 2012 Facebook Twitter Previous articleUSDA Releases FY 2012 & 2013 Export ForecastsNext articlePurdue Economist Predicts Record Losses For Pork Industry Gary Truitt SHAREcenter_img Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter USDA’s Agricultural Research Service has conducted studies to determine how standing crop residues affect snow accumulation and soil water levels across entire fields. A USDA soil scientist studied two neighboring farms in the Palouse region in eastern Washington. Both have hilly topography – but one farm has been under continuous no-till management since 1999. The fields on the other farm were conventionally tilled. Snow depths, density and soil water storage were measured at hundreds of points across the fields on both farms for two years. The residue height at data collection points was also measured on the no-till fields. USDA says the findings show that no-till management can ensure blanket coverage of snow in the winter – which can help boost dryland crop productivity in the summer.According to the study – standing wheat residue on the no-till farm significantly increased the amount and uniformity of snow cover across the entire field. Snow depths ranged from four to 39-inches – with an average depth of 11 inches. Snow depths on the conventionally tilled field ranged from zero to 56 inches – with an average depth of 8.5-inches. USDA notes the snow distribution pattern on the no-till farm made soil water distribution more uniform and increased soil water recharge rates. USDA’s soil scientist calculated that the greater storage of soil water in no-till systems could increase winter wheat yield potential by 13 bushels per acre on ridge tops, six bushels per acre on south facing slopes and three bushels per acre in valleys. This could increase winter wheat profits for regional farmers by an average of 30-dollars per acre and as much as 54-dollars per ridge-top acre.According to USDA – producers affected by the 2012 drought might also benefit from using no-till to increase the amount and uniformity of snow cover on their fields. This would increase soil water recharge rates and soil moisture storage – which would facilitate the return of drought-stricken fields to their former productivity.

Stone was arrested in the special counsel’s Russia investigation and was charged with lying to Congress and obstructing the probe.

Today, we’ve got news on the most recent intelligence report, Robert Stone pleading not guilty and icy cold temperatures in the Midwest.Intelligence report contradicts TrumpAn intelligence report of global threats, released Tuesday, stressed a present nuclear threat from North Korea and continued violence in Syria by ISIS, according to the New York Times.   This directly contradicts President Donald Trump’s previous assertions that ISIS had been defeated, and that North Korea will give up their nuclear weapons. The report did not mention the crisis at the southern border or the construction of a wall, President Trump’s top security priority. Many Republicans, including Senator Mitch McConnell, have sided with the intelligence report and are “pushing back” against President Trump’s foreign policy.McConnell introduced a measure yesterday that criticized withdrawing troops from Syria and Afghanistan.  Roger Stone Pleads ‘Not Guilty’Long-time Trump advisor and business partner, Roger Stone, pleaded ‘not guilty’ on Tuesday to counts of obstruction of justice, false statements and witness tampering, according to CNN.  Stone is allegedly connected to the release of information on Hillary Clinton through WikiLeaks during the 2016 election. President Trump noted that the indictment does not explicitly reveal a conspiracy between the Trump campaign team and Russia. The Midwest experiences the ‘coldest air in a generation’According to CNN, polar vortex winds sweeping through the Midwest are creating subzero temperatures for 83 million people.The ‘coldest air in a generation’ has already caused five deaths this week, and officials warn of near-instant frostbite with wind chills in Minnesota at negative 70.The cold temperatures are also causing issues with postal delivery and flight cancellations across the Midwest.Apple Facetime glitch allows eavesdroppingA Facetime glitch has allowed people to eavesdrop on each other through group FaceTime, according to The New York Times.This glitch granted access to the Facetime caller to listen in on the recipient of the call, even if the recipient did not answer the call.More than one week after Apple was notified of the issue, they disabled group Facetime.Apple plans to release new software later this week to fix the issue.The largest racial minority of the electorate is LatinosLatinos are projected to be the largest share of minority voters in the 2020 election, according to NBC News.In 2020, 32 million Hispanics will be eligible to vote in comparison to 30 million eligible black voters. While white voters continue to constitute the largest portion of eligible voters, these numbers signify that in 2020, one-third of eligible voters will be non-white. 36,000 pounds of chicken recalled by TysonAccording to NBC News, Tyson recalled 36,000 pounds of chicken because they may contain rubber. There have been no reported adverse reactions to the chicken; however, the U.S. Agriculture Department has reported claims of rubber material within the packages. The nuggets, with a use-by date of Nov. 26, 2019, should be thrown away. That’s all we have for today.

Required fields are marked * Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Stacey Roth (l) and Joseph Costa (r)The Hillsides Board of Directors today announced that Hillsides’ Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President Stacey Roth has been tapped to succeed President and CEO Joe Costa, who is retiring from Hillsides next year after more than 10 years in the role. Roth will assume the role of CEO on July 1 and take on the President role in January, at which point Costa will become President and CEO Emeritus until his retirement in late June 2021.“Hillsides has been incredibly fortunate to have had Joe at the helm for the past decade,” said Jesse A. Cripps, board chair. “He has brought incredible stability and progressive thinking to the organization and we’ve continued to grow in the services that we have provided under his leadership.”Hillsides Board Vice Chair Deborah L.S. Booth also praised Costa’s efforts to grow and promote the organization with his external leadership on the national, state and local levels, greatly expanding Hillsides’ supporters and overseeing a major $18 million capital campaign that wrapped up in 2018.“He has a lot of connections and is really great with donors and foundation contacts in communicating the terrific work of the organization and our ongoing funding needs,” Booth said. “Our outreach within the Pasadena and Los Angeles community has really connected us to a whole new audience of supporters. There’s so much more awareness of Hillsides and what we do.”Both Cripps and Booth said Roth was an obvious choice to succeed Costa during the search process. As Director of Community-Based Programs, Roth grew the program from 40 employees to over 200 employees and $1 million in contracts to over $24 million over ten years. She also put the organization in the national spotlight with her leadership in creating a Trauma-Informed Care approach and manual for nonprofits to adopt in partnership with the National Council for Behavioral Healthcare.“Stacey has served Hillsides in many capacities for 25 years,” Cripps said. “First as a therapist in the residential program, then as the director of community-based programs, and most recently as the Chief Operating Officer. As a result, she is familiar with all our service divisions. She brings to the CEO position not only administrative experience but also a keen awareness of the clinical needs of the children and families we serve. Her commitment to the organization is evident not just by her years of service but also by her willingness to lead significant initiatives that have advanced the quality of care offered by Hillsides.”Added Booth: “I remember something she said when we were interviewing her that her parents always told her to go for it and not give up. She goes for it like nobody I’ve ever seen. In a good way, a nice way. She can hit the ground running when she starts her new role.”Among the most immediate tasks for Roth will be to help the organization navigate the many challenges presented by the COVID-19 crisis, both organizationally and financially, and work with the board on a new strategic planning process. “We like all organizations are looking at the new normal and trying to learn from it. Stacey has been very open to exploring different ways we can provide services in an uncertain future,” Cripps said. “It’s a challenging and exciting time for the organization and Stacey brings to the table a lot of ideas for growth. The energy that she brings is really an extension of the culture that Joe created. It’s one of finding ways to continue to grow and thrive as an organization.” EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDScenter_img Community News HerbeautyNutritional Strategies To Ease AnxietyHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Questions To Start Conversation Way Better Than ‘How U Doing?’HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThis Trend Looks Kind Of Cool!HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWhat’s Your Zodiac Flower Sign?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyA 74 Year Old Fitness Enthusiast Defies All Concept Of AgeHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Ways To Power Yourself As A WomanHerbeautyHerbeauty Subscribe More Cool Stuff STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week Community News Hillsides Announces Appointment of Stacey Roth to Replace Retiring CEO Joe Costa STAFF REPORT Published on Monday, June 29, 2020 | 2:34 pm faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Donald CommunityPCC- COMMUNITYVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Top of the News STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy last_img read more

The Worldwide Cardiac Marker Testing Industry is Expected to Reach $5.5 Billion by 2025…

first_imgLocal NewsBusiness DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan 29, 2021– The “Global Cardiac Marker Testing Market by Product (Reagent, Instrument), Component (Troponin I & T, CK-MB, Myoglobin, BNP, hsCRP), Disease (Myocardial Infarction, Congestive Heart Failure, Atheresclerosis), End-user (Lab, PoC, Academia), and Region – Forecast to 2025” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering. The global cardiac marker testing market is projected to reach USD 5.5 billion by 2025 from USD 3.6 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 8.9%. The growth in the cardiac marker testing market is majorly driven by the growing incidence of cardiovascular diseases, rapidly increasing geriatric population, growing funding from public and private organizations for research on cardiac biomarkers, and ongoing clinical trials for the identification of novel cardiac biomarkers. However, factors such as technical problems related to sample collection and storage and issues related to regulatory and reimbursement systems are expected to restrain market growth to a certain extent. The cardiac marker testing market is also faced a period of short-term negative growth, which can be attributed to factors such as a greater than 50% drop in the number of patients with cardiovascular conditions and those diagnosed with myocardial infarction. All areas of cardiology service provision sustained significant reductions, which included outpatient clinics, investigations, procedures, and cardiology community services such as cardiac rehabilitation. Wide use of reagents and kits in all basic diagnostic activities in laboratories, academic institutes, and POC settings is expected to result in the segment occupying the majority of the cardiac marker testing market share Growing number of cardiac marker testing procedures, accessibility to a wide range of cardiac biomarker reagents and kits, and the growing demand for reliable, specific, and faster detection of cardiovascular diseases at an early stage are the key growth factors for this segment. Troponin I and T estimated to be the fastest-growing market Troponin I and T is estimated to be the fastest-growing segment in the cardiac marker testing market. The large share of this segment can be attributed high sensitivity and specificity, long elevation times, and rapid prediction of outcome or mortality. The Asia-Pacific market to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period The cardiac marker testing market is segmented into five major regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Asia-Pacific is estimated to be the fastest-growing market for cardiac marker testing during the forecast period. The Asia-Pacific market is driven due increased healthcare spending by a larger population base, healthcare infrastructure modernization, and the rising penetration of cutting-edge clinical laboratory technologies (especially in rural areas) in Asia-Pacific countries.

Harris may not be traditional VP

first_imgThe White HouseKamala Harris was sworn in as the first female vice president on Jan. 20, 2021. Sponsored Content John Adams, the first vice president of the United States once complained that the vice presidency was the most insignificant office that ever the invention of man contrived or his imagination conceived.The role of the vice president is to succeed to the presidency upon the death or resignation of the President and to preside over the Senate with no vote except to break a tie.So, most of the time, the Vice President of the United States has no other specified role in national government. Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Harris may not be traditional VP By Jaine Treadwell Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Print Article Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Kelly Hawkins Godwin’s belief is that real leadership is about bringing people together and not dividing them.“While we are only nine days into this administration, it’s yet to be determined if harmony will be fostered by Vice President Harris,” said Godwin, Troy University Leadership Development lecturer. “I pray she fills this role that our country so desperately needs.“Representation matters. And having a female vice president is significant because all little girls can now look at that office and say ‘I can too.’”Godwin said having a female vice president in the United States is also important because the only office left to conquer is that of the Presidency.“This creates hope for us that in our lifetime, we will see a female occupy the most important seat in the world at the most influential table in the world,” Godwin said. “We are one step closer to truly shattering the proverbial glass ceiling that shadows the fight for equality.”Kymbra Ross, a payroll technician at Wiley Sanders, said the role of United States Vice President is going to change with Kamala Harris in office.“Having a female vice president is going to change the way our society looks at gender roles and greater progress will be made toward gender equality,” Ross said. “Individuals will be looked at more for what they can do rather than who they are.”Ross said, when Joe Biden was vice president, he was more involved with political issues and she expects Vice President Harris to also be more involved.“She will be more in communication with the public and she will be trusted,” Ross said. “I have admiration for Vice President Harris and those like her who have the courage and confidence to seek the opportunities and risks of public service.“I believe having a woman in a leading national role will be motivation and encouragement for other women to seek political positions.”In a short time after Harris was sworn as the first female United States vice president, she said. “Even in dark times, we not only dream, we do. We not only see what has been, we see what we can be. We are bold, fearless and ambitious. We are undaunted in our belief that we shall overcome, that we will rise up.”Now, with Kamala Harris, the first female United States vice president in office, there might be more to the office than even John Adams contrived or his imagination could have conceived.
