Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for November 8, 2016

first_img SHARE Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for November 8, 2016 Home News Feed Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for November 8, 2016 Facebook Twitter Previous articleTrash Talking Trade, Will It Continue After Election Day?Next articleMorning Outlook Hoosier Ag Today By Hoosier Ag Today – Nov 8, 2016 Facebook Twitter A weak batch of moisture moves in over the state today, coming up around the backside of high pressure that moves off the east coast. This will bring plentiful clouds, and also a chance of some minor precipitation. Moisture will be limited to a few hundredths to about 2 tenths maximum, with coverage at about 50% of the state. WE really would like to keep the state dry in our forecast, but that just is not going to be able to come together. Still, most of the moisture will be limited to this afternoon and evening, and will be gone by tonight.Dry weather is back tomorrow and will hold through the weekend and early next week. Another strong high pressure dome will move in, bringing cooler air to start and then warmer air up the backside. Overall, even with the cooler air tomorrow, temps will still be above normal right on through this 7 day period. Dry down will be excellent with full sun and nice breezes. Temps may make a run at freezing underneath the core of high pressure overnight Friday night into Saturday…that will be where the coldest, sinking air will be under the high.Our next system to watch arrives next Tuesday, initially with a minor warm front. That front brings a few hundredths to a quarter of an inch with 50% coverage for Tuesday. But, as the low moves through Wednesday, we see better rain totals move in and much better coverage, with rains of .25”-.5” Tuesday night through Wednesday and coverage at 80%. This system will usher in strong north winds and much colder air behind the system for the start of the 11-16 day forecast window.Those strong north winds will take temps to below normal levels next starting next Thursday and will keep a cool pattern in place into next weekend. Some models are trying to suggest a bounce in temps to normal and above normal levels as we move closer to thanksgiving. However, we are not in that camp. We look for temps staying normal to below normal through the last 10 days of November. SHARElast_img read more

California seizes control over struggling vaccine delivery

first_imgLOS ANGELES (AP) — California is changing up the way it is delivering coronavirus vaccines and moving to a more centralized system that should streamline appointment sign-up, notification and eligibility for nearly 40 million residents. But few detais were released Tuesday, and counties, which have been leading the vaccine effort, say they need more information. A private third-party administrator will work with a new statewide secretary to decide where the state’s supply of vaccine should go. California has been criticized for vaccinating so few people even amid a national vaccine shortage that appears to be the main bottleneck. At the same time, residents are frustrated by eligibility rules that vary by county and by hospital system.last_img

Financial advice

first_imgHow can I reduce my expenses? Think before you spend. If you live from paycheck to paycheck, pay close attention to where your money goes. Most families can reduce spending by as much as 20 percent without feeling much, if any, pain. Carry a notepad and write down every penny you spend. At least once a week, add up how much you spent and what you bought. Little things, like buying snacks from vending machines, smoking, or eating lunch out, can add up to a lot of money in a month’s time. How can I earn more money? Determine if the need for additional income is a short-term problem or something requiring a more long-term solution. If it’s a short-term challenge, find a part-time job, take on odd jobs like babysitting or mowing yards, or have a yard sale to clear out items you no longer want or need. For a more permanent solution, consider returning to school to earn a degree or gain additional training that will lead to a higher-paying position. A home-based business may be another option. How can I cut back on monthly bills? Shop around, regularly, for everything ¬— insurance, utilities, telephone service (including cell phones), Internet access, credit cards and other goods and services. The cost difference from one provider to another can be astronomical. The great deal you got two years ago may no longer be the best deal, so it is important to recheck at least once a year. And make sure you only pay for what you use. Cancel extra features or services you rarely or never need. Think about targeting one or two spending areas. Brainstorm with other members of the household on ways to reduce spending. I’m having trouble making ends meet. What are my options? If you don’t have enough money to cover your expenses, you have at least three options: increase your income, reduce your expenses or somehow create a combination of the two. Doing nothing is not an option. If you continue to spend more money than you earn, sooner or later you are going to have big problems. The sooner you tackle the problem, the better. By April SorrowUniversity of GeorgiaMany economic experts say the United States is in the midst of the greatest recession the nation has faced since the Great Depression. American families are affected directly by this crisis through job losses, home foreclosures and rising fuel and food costs. To help families deal with the financial crisis, University of Georgia Cooperative Extension financial management specialist Michael Rupured answered a few commonly asked questions. What about my credit cards? If you have excellent credit, carry a balance and pay more than 14.9% APR (the current average), contact the credit card company and ask for a lower rate. Currently, consumers with excellent credit can find credit cards with interest rates as low as 6.5% and no annual fee. If you are unsure about your credit history, Georgians can request up to two free credit reports per year from each of the three major credit reporting agencies (Experian, Equifax and TransUnion). Should I refinance my home loan? If you have excellent credit, owe less than your home is worth, will stay in the home long enough to recover any closing costs, and can find a lower interest rate, then the answer is probably “yes.” The problem for many homeowners is the balance—what they still owe—exceeds the value of the home. With less than stellar credit, obtaining a loan with a lower interest rate will likely be difficult, if not impossible. last_img read more

first_imgCHENNAI: World Rapid Chess Champion Koneru Humpy paved the way for India’s entry into the final of the FIDE Online Olympiad by winning her game in the Armageddon.Humpy outclassed Poland’s Monika Socko in the final game to assure India of at least one of the top two positions in the Online Olympiad. It was a dramatic comeback for India after getting outclassed by Poland in the first match 4-2. In the second match, the Asian chess power house showed its class to humble Poland 4.5-1.5. With the two teams registering one victory each, the game went into Armageddon with Humpy having an advantage. She had drawn against Socko in the first match, and won against her in the second.

On their part, Poland brought in Grzegorz Gajewski in place of Radoslaw Wojtaszek. India won the second match comfortably with a score of 4.5-1.5.

6 Steps to organize a Cache In, Trash Out (CITO) event

first_imgSave the Earth & geocache? Yes please! We call it CITO (Cache in Trash Out).In 2016, geocachers around the globe will gather together during the weeks of April 22-30 and September 17 – 25 to pick up trash, remove invasive species, repair trails and more—plus earn a pretty sweet new souvenir. If you’ve never hosted a CITO before and you don’t know where to begin, read on! Here are 6 steps to get you started. 1. Choose a location and a dateSince your CITO event will result in an improvement to a public space, pick an area that’s important to you and/or that needs special attention. Make sure you have permission to host the CITO from the local land manager. If you are unsure about which location is best, call a local park manager or geocaching organization. They can provide assistance and support in selecting the best location.2. Pick an activityAt it’s very basic, a CITO event should involve geocachers taking part in an activity that produces an environmental improvement to a park or another cache-friendly place. CITO activities have ranged from trash pickups, to tree plantings, to invasive species removals, to trail maintenance. Need inspiration and direction? Talk to the land manager to find out where volunteers are most needed. See if there are any local environmental organizations already doing volunteer work, with whom you can partner. Call your city’s Parks and Recreation department to find out if any city volunteer initiatives are planned.3. Fill out the cache submission formYour CITO event will need to be submitted online at least two weeks before the date of the event. Give yourself a bit more time than that to square away any details.Type & Location: Select Cache In, Trash Out as the event type, and enter the coordinates where your event will take place.Waypoints (Optional): Is there parking near your event? A trailhead you need to find to get to the right spot? Let folks know.Description & Summary: Where is the event, what time does it start and end, and what will folks be doing? Is any special type of clothing or gear required? Will there be activities suitable for young children, or do you have to be a spring chicken to partake? Will there be a lunch break? Any safety concerns? The more details you can supply, the better. Share with your Friends:More 4. Wait for the event to be published.Once you’ve reviewed and submitted your event listing, your local Reviewer will likely publish the event or request changes to it within a week. If you don’t hear from your Reviewer, check to make sure the event listing is actually submitted and enabled. Check to see if the Reviewer has posted any Reviewer notes in the cache logs section. Once you’ve made any necessary changes, review and submit the listing once more. Feel free to ask your Reviewer for advice if you’re struggling with the event listing.5. Once the event is published, let people know about it!Is there a local geocaching organization you can reach out to, to let them know about your CITO? Maybe there are even some non-geocacher volunteer organizations you could recruit…the more the merrier! 6. On the day of the event…Show up early.Watch the cache page and your e-mail for last minute questions.See to it that every person knows what the activity is, and how to do it.Agree on a time and location to meet up and debrief at the close of the event.After the event is over, keep the event listed long enough to allow people to log the event. Then write a thank you note, and archive it. Voila!That’s all, folks! Remember: the CITO 2016 souvenir will be available for events during the weeks of April 22-30 and September 17 – 25, so if you’re planning to host an event that weekend make sure you submit the cache listing at least two weeks in advance, preferably more.
