Almost 90% of harvest still in the ground in Donegal

first_imgClose to 90pc of spring cereal crops remain to be cut in Donegal as continuous heavy rains have brought the harvest in the county to a standstill.The wet weather has restricted harvesting to a handful of days over the last three weeks and ground conditions have deteriorated badly.“The combines haven’t moved in close to two weeks. It’s shocking bad. Two or three dry days is all we’ve had in the last three weeks,” said Peter Lynch, the IFA grain chairman in Donegal. “Ground conditions are now the big worry,” he told independent.ie.Mr Lynch said fields that were usually very dry were now holding a lot of surface water. Heavier land is not trafficable.“We’ll need three of four good dry days before we can go anywhere near crops. It’s not going to be simple if the weather doesn’t improve,” Mr Lynch admitted.The one positive for growers is that crops are generally standing up very well, apart from some early signs of sprouting. Teagasc’s Martin McCullough maintained that the situation in the county was “not desperate yet” but he conceded that the weather will need to improve.Get the latest news from the Farming Independent team 3 times a week. Sign UpThe Teagasc advisor pointed out that over 50mm of rain fell in east Donegal in just two days the weekend before last, and that it had rained nearly every day since.With close to 4,500ac of spring barley left to be cut, along with small acreages of wheat and oats, IFA members from other parts of the country have offered to bring in combines to help local growers.“We’ve had plenty of offers from other growers on the [IFA] grain committee to send us up combines, and that’s great, but its weather we need not combines,” Mr Lynch said.

New Ohio agritourism law provides clarity, addresses liability, taxation, zoning

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest For 20 years, the Leeds Farm in Delaware County has opened its gates to thousands of visitors on autumn weekends for hayrides, zip lines, pig races and other activities including a petting zoo with goats and a mother-daughter pair of donkeys.“We kind of naturally evolved into agritourism,” said Rob Leeds, who is also the local agriculture and natural resources educator for Ohio State University Extension. “As development started happening and things changed around us, we adapted.”If nothing else, new Ohio legislation gives Leeds peace of mind, he said.On May 17, Gov. John Kasich signed Senate Bill 75, which defines agritourism, offers protections for agritourism operators, and addresses issues including civil liability risks, property taxation and local zoning authority.The law takes effect Aug. 16, well in time for agritourism activities popular in Ohio in autumn, said Peggy Kirk Hall, assistant professor of agricultural and resource law for the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State University and agricultural law field specialist for OSU Extension.“I think the first thing people need to understand is that to be covered by the law, you have to meet the definition of a ‘farm,’” Hall said. “You have to have at least 10 acres devoted to agricultural production or gross an average income of at least $2,500 from such production. You already have to have that production taking place. If so, then an agritourism activity that is agriculturally related, whether educational, historical, cultural, recreational or for entertainment, is covered by the new law.”The law protects operators from liability for injuries related to risks inherent in agritourism activities.“‘Inherent’ risks are those things that a reasonable person would know they would be at risk from doing that activity,” Hall said. “Being around a horse carries some inherent risks due to the size and unpredictability of the animal. But if an operator doesn’t correctly harness the horse and a problem arises, that would be considered negligence, which isn’t protected by this legislation.”Activities involving animals always carry some risk, Leeds said.“Ninety to 95% of our goats are good-natured, but if someone’s coat or jacket gets too close, they could easily start nibbling on it. They’re not trying to be mean. They’re just goats,” he said.Leeds said rough terrain can also be an issue for farm visitors.“Not everything is blacktop on a farm,” he said. “At our operation, you park in a hayfield. It’s part of the experience. For the most part, it’s fine, but you have to realize that it is still a farm field. So, these protections offer us some peace of mind.”Under the new law, operators must post warning signs near each entrance or at each activity notifying visitors that the operator is not liable for any injuries related to those inherent risks.“The language of the warning sign is precise, and the law states the letters must be in black, at least one inch in height and must be clearly visible at the entrance or at the site of the activity,” Hall said. “I recommend that operators err on the side of posting too many signs rather than not enough. You’re putting people on notice that they need to understand that there are some inherent risks of being there.”Local zoning officials need to understand the new law also, because it limits how zoning can affect agritourism activities, she said. County and township zoning won’t be able to prohibit agritourism, but can make some requirements to address property access, parking and building setbacks in certain situations.“This is where we may see some differences of opinion about whether the operation is truly “agritourism” according to the law,” she said. “I’ve already heard from local governments trying to figure out who this affects.”The law also clarifies that land where agritourism activities take place should be taxed under Ohio’s Current Agricultural Use Valuation program rather than at higher property tax rates.“That’s never been a big deal for us — our auditor in Delaware County works very closely with the ag community — but I’ve heard it’s been an issue for some operators in other counties,” Leeds said. “It’s always good to be clear.”Hall provides an overview of the legislation with additional details in a post on OSU Extension’s Ag Law Blog, aglaw.osu.edu/blog.Leeds said that the law will be helpful to operations like his, which he runs with his wife Christy Leeds.“But no matter what legislation we pass, it always comes back to relationships,” Leeds said. “As agritourism operators, we need to develop relationships with neighbors, township trustees and elected officials. I really enjoy working with our local fire officials and sheriff, talking about issues they may see with our operation and what we may need to do to be safe. Those relationships are invaluable no matter what.”last_img read more

The Oscars of Twitter: Shorty Awards to Honor Creators of Short-Form, Real-Time Content

first_imgRelated Posts Tags:#twitter#web Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification jolie odell Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro…center_img Last year, SawHorse Media, a Twitter aggregator that pioneered the concept of lists, put together the Shorty Awards. This contest and ceremony was intended to “honor the best producers of short, real-time content.”The first show was such a success that SawHorse is currently producing a second event. Like the Webbies, the Streamys and other award shows for online content, this event will recognize the geeky heroes we probably follow more than we do real-world celebrities – the ones who make us laugh, think and act. Voting is now open in 27 categories; read on to see who’s making the grade.Categories range in scope from serious topics such as government, health and politics and to lighter fare such as music, culture, celebrities and humor. There are also a few geek-centric topics, such as tech, science and apps. Additionally, SawHorse has allowed users to create crowd-sourced categories, such as sexiest Twitterer and social media.The awards are given based on each content creator’s whole Twitter oeuvre, not just a single tweet. Any Twitter user with a valid, active account can nominate and vote; votes are sent out as tweets from that user’s account. Next month, the nominees will be narrowed to five per category and referred to the hilariously named Real-Time Academy of Short Form Arts & Sciences for final judging.Although the Academy has a spoofy name, it includes such distinguished members as MIT Media Lab’s director, Frank Moss, and Creative Commons CEO Joi Ito, among other luminaries.Last year’s special guests included MC Hammer and Gary Vaynerchuk. There’s no word yet on who will be speaking and presenting at this year’s show, but we do know the ceremony will be held in March in New York City, and winners will be giving 140-character acceptance speeches.Check out the site and vote for or nominate your favorite tweeters, from ShitMyDadSays to David Archuleta.

Let’s Chat About Culinary Medicine

first_imgBy: Annabelle Shaffer, Dietetics senior at University of Illinois, Urbana-ChampaignWhat is culinary medicine?Dr. John La Puma is one of the founding fathers of culinary medicine and defines it as “an emerging field that blends the art of food and cooking with the science of medicine”.1,2 The field focuses on utilizing food to prevent disease and improve a patient’s well-being, but does not disregard the effectiveness of pharmaceuticals and conventional medical services.1 Interest in food as preventative medicine has recently grown due to families eating away from the home more frequently, rising healthcare costs, public interest in organic and local farming, increased availability of fast foods, and dissatisfaction with conventional medicine.1How do we use it? Culinary medicine has recently been incorporated into undergraduate and medical training programs. Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans, LA, founded the Goldring Center for Culinary Medicine which educates patients and medical professionals on not only what to eat, but how to find and prepare it.2 A randomized controlled study performed by the center using the Mediterranean diet for Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus patients found improvements in blood pressure, hemoglobin A1c, and blood cholesterol levels, as well as increases in self-efficacy towards healthy cooking.3In addition to Tulane University, many research groups have implemented culinary medicine to improve a population’s health and nutrition:In Washington, D.C., a study targeting African American women living in public housing decreased caloric intake and caloric intake from fat through seven 90-minute sessions that included hands-on cooking in each lesson and a grocery store tour.4The Los Angeles Sprouts program targeting Latino youth in afterschool programs utilizes gardening and cooking classes. Children in the intervention groups have reduced body mass indexes, blood pressure, the rate of weight gain, and increased fiber intake.5The University of Southampton aimed to improve the nutrition behaviors of South Asian women who commonly suffer from Iron-deficiency anemia. The Break the Cycle Project created hands-on peer-led cookery clubs which resulted in decreased salt, sugar, and fried food consumption and increased fruit, vegetable, low-fat dairy, and fiber consumption.6While the field of culinary medicine shows promise in improving a population’s nutrition, more research is needed to establish an effective teaching style, impacts on patient and provider behavior, and training protocol for chefs and medical professionals.7 Additionally, a thorough evaluation of culinary medicine programming’s cost and benefits should be performed to identify their effectiveness and how to best utilize and sustain them.7 One major challenge culinary medicine programming faces is financial. Programs can cost from $5000 – 300,000 and are funded by private donors.7 Dr. Polak and others suggest lobbying for insurance funding and experiments to design a self-sustaining program may be possible solutions.7 Bibliography:La Puma J.

Kumar Sangakkara to mentor Pakistan cricket team?

first_imgThe Pakistan Cricket Board has failed to rope in West Indian great Sir Vivian Richards as the mentor of the team for the upcoming World T20 in India.PCB chairman Shahryar Khan told the media that negotiations with Richards had been wrapped up as the two parties could not agree on financial details and the West Indian legend also had prior commitments. (Pakistan appoint Azhar Mahmood as bowling coach for Asia Cup, ICC World T20)”We are now considering the name of Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara to work as mentor of the team but nothing is final as yet as we have to first see how much benefit our team can derive from his presence,” Khan said.He said Sangakkara’s presence in the Pakistan Super League had left a big impact on everyone including the players.”He is under consideration for sure and we will decide soon what to do as I am going to Bangladesh for the Pakistan and India match on Saturday,” he added.The PCB chief said a lot would also depend on Sangakkara himself and his commitments and whether he was interested in the short-term assignment.Richards was mentor of the Quetta Gladiators team while Sangakkara played for the franchise. (Pakistan legend Saqlain Mushtaq blasts Indian cricket. Here’s why)Khan also minced no words in stating that he had spoken to chief selector Haroon Rasheed about recent selections and changes in the national team.”When they brought the initial squad for the Asia Cup and World T20 to me I told them to consider either Sharjeel Khan or Ahmed Shehzad instead of Khurrum Manzoor. But they insisted it was a unanimous decision. Now they themselves have brought in Sharjeel.”advertisementHe said that even when he saw Iftikhar Ahmed’s name in the squad he had raised questions but now the selectors had dropped him for the World T20.”I have told the chief selector that selection process must be non-controversial as the wrong impression should not go out of the PCB,” he added.Khan confirmed that former Pakistan allrounder, Azhar Mahmood, had been appointed bowling coach of the team for the Asia Cup and World T20.”Azhar will join the team in Dhaka on Thursday while Mushtaq Ahmed, who was bowling coach till now, has returned to the national cricket academy in Lahore,” he added.He also made it clear that head coach Waqar Younis will continue to work until the tour of England in July and August.”After that tour we will decide and discuss whether his contract is to be extended,” he added.last_img read more

first_img​Bournemouth winger Brooks could return in November – Giggsby Ansser Sadiq18 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveWales boss Ryan Gigga believes that David Brooks is at least a month away from fitness.The 22-year-old Bournemouth star is suffering from ankle ligament damage.Welsh fans were hoping he could be back sooner, but it appears that Brooks could miss the remainder of his country’s Euro 2020 qualifiers.Giggs told BBC Sport: “Even if he was fit, he has been out a long time.”His return is looking around November.”Now whether that’s back playing or back actually training, I’m not too sure. It’s a bit of a difficult one because he was still in a boot in the last camp.”Even if he was fit he has been out a long time.
