DuPont Pioneer Agronomy Update 7/19/16

first_imgWhile there are some weed issues, Miller says, for the most part, things are better than they were last year. He also said encirca models have been showing plenty of nitrogen in fields and his observations would confirm that. Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Home News Feed DuPont Pioneer Agronomy Update 7/19/16 DuPont Pioneer Agronomy Update 7/19/16 DuPont Pioneer Agronomy Update 7/19/16 Corn pollination is underway across the state.The pollination window may be a bit wider than normal this year since we planted part of our corn crop in April and part of it in late May. But overall in the Eastern part of the state, early corn pollination is going well, says DuPont Pioneer agronomist Eric Miller, “Corn pollination is underway in most fields and is progressing without any major problems.”  He said timely rains in most areas in the past week has set the crop up to face the warmer conditions that are coming this week. By Gary Truitt – Jul 18, 2016 The soybeans are setting up well. Miller stated, “The soybean crop is in full flower and some of the group 2 varieties are showing some pods on the lower nodes. Some are even at R3 growth stage.”   According to the latest NASS report, soybeans were blooming in 62% in the North, 61% in Central, and 38% in the South. Setting pods were 17% complete in the North, 23% in Central, and 12% in the South. SHARE SHARE Miller says the rains that came last week and over the weekend  relieved some dry areas in extreme Eastern Indiana, “Blackford, Jay, and Randolph Counties were very dry, but rain last week really helped those crops.”  He expressed concern, however, about SE Indiana counties. Like much of Southern Indiana, too much water has been the issue this year, and rains this past weekend exacerbated the situation.

Staff still reluctant to share information

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. “Knowledge management” may be the buzzword of the moment but manystaff hoard knowledge rather than share it.The trend emerged in research by Birkbeck College, London, and isparticularly strong among “knowledge workers”, such as those workingin the media.Nearly one in five (18 per cent) agreed or strongly agreed with thestatement, “It is not in my best interests to share my good ideasfreely”.It is also evident in the health service and IT.Mark Auckland, chief knowledge manager at BT Global, said it is a naturalreaction because people have traditionally been rewarded for individual, notteam, performance.BT has tried to break the habit by giving recognition to staff who shareknowledge and including it in appraisals and performance management plans.”It is starting to be recognised that those who give the most are theones who get on. They get to work on the best and most interestingprojects,” he said.But he admitted it is a struggle. “These are hard habits to break,there is no magic pixie dust,” he said.In global business markets which have had a knowledge management system formore than two years, 30 per cent participate, 30 per cent show interest and 30per cent hoard,” he said.

French employees in revolt over short hours

first_imgFrench employees in revolt over short hoursOn 30 Sep 2003 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. In a move that supports arguments that the UK should be allowed to continueto opt out from the Working Time Directive, French workers are rejecting thecountry’s 35-hour working week. According to a poll conducted for L’Expansion magazine, employees aregrowing increasingly disaffected over the 35-hour week and are demanding thefreedom to work longer hours. More than 60 per cent of employees think the limit penalises Frenchcompanies, and more than half feel the legislation is encouraging companies torelocate outside France. Thirty-six per cent of French workers want to see a return to theirtraditional working week of 39 hours. The cut to 35 hours was introduced five years ago under socialist premierLionel Jospin. The EU is currently reviewing the UK’s opt-out clause, which allowsemployees to choose to work longer than the 48-hour maximum stipulated by theWorking Time Directive. Mike Emmott, employee relations adviser at the Chartered Institute ofPersonnel and Development, said the cost of limiting the working week inFrance, originally carried by government, was now being passed onto employees. “Some of the financial strain is falling on the employee. They areenjoying the freedom, they are getting time to go to the Alps, but the bill isbeing called in and they can’t square the circle.” However, TUC policy officer Paul Sellers argues that French workers arelucky to have the luxury to debate whether they prefer the 35- or 39-hour week.”The priority [in the UK] is to end the opt-out,” he said.”We need to protect people’s health and safety.” Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

Peugeot driving the use of OH

first_imgForthe past two years, Peugeot Citroën has encouraged the 3,000 staff at its Rytonplant to see the OH department rather than their GP, and some 70 per cent havedone so.Inthat time, there have been no adverse medical outcomes, said Dr Kneale, andbecoming involved in the pilots was the logical next step. “If you have goodprotocols and procedures, then the nursing staff will generally feel confidentabout it,” she explained.Oncean employee has been seen by the OH department, a ‘fitness to work’ report isprepared for the line manager, although Dr Kneale stresses there is still aduty of confidentiality to the employee. Ifdeemed fit, a return date is set and, if the employee does not then return, itbecomes an attendance rather than an absence matter, with the prospect ofbecoming a disciplinary issue.TheGP still retains ultimate medical responsibility so if, after seeing the OHdepartment, it’s clear that medical intervention is required, the employeetransfers into the usual medical channels. Aswell as five OH nurses and a doctor, the plant has access to a physiotherapist and psychotherapist, meaning there is also the option to referpeople on to them.–To subscribe to Personnel Today’s sister publication Occupational Health magazine call 01444 445566.

Demographic consequences of fisheries interaction within a killer whale (Orcinus orca) population

first_imgIndividual heterogeneity in foraging behavior has been widely documented within predator populations. In highly social apex predators such as killer whales (Orcinus orca), specialization may occur at the matriline level. A small population of killer whales has been documented to occur around the Crozet Islands. These whales feed on a wide range of prey items including seals, penguins and large whales, as well as depredate the local Patagonian toothfish (Dissostichus eleginoides) longline fishery. The level of interactions with fisheries varies greatly between matrilines. Here, we present the results on the effects of such behavioral heterogeneity on the demographic trends of this killer whale population. We used photo-identification data from 1977 to 2011 in a mark–recapture framework to test the effect of varying levels of fisheries interactions on adult survival. We documented significant differences in survival between depredating and non-depredating whales, resulting in divergent intra-population demographic trends. These differences showed low survival, and thus a negative effect, for depredating whales when illegal fishing occurred (poachers used lethal methods to deter killer whales from depredating longlines). After illegal fishing stopped (2003–2011), the survival rates of depredating individuals exceeded the survival rates of non-depredating individuals, suggesting a positive influence of “artificial food provisioning”. This effect was further supported by a higher population growth rate for depredating whales. This study highlights the potential demographic costs and benefits that cetaceans face from depredating fisheries and addresses the demographic consequences of both intra-population feeding specialization and the influence of anthropogenic changes in resource availability.last_img read more

7th-grader is University of Michigan’s secret weapon in Final Four

first_imgMarch 28, 2018 /Sports News – National 7th-grader is University of Michigan’s secret weapon in Final Four Beau Lund Written bycenter_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailiStock/Thinkstock(MONROE, Mich.) — The University of Michigan men’s basketball team will compete this weekend in the Final Four with a little extra help on their side, but it won’t be on the court.Seventh-grader Jude Stamper from Monroe, Michigan has been a big part in helping the No. 3 seed Wolverines continue their winning streak.Last year 12-year-old Stamper even had his own draft day signing and was officially welcomed as a member of the team.Stamper has a condition known as Arthrogryposis Multi-Congenital disorder with Escobar Syndrome. It makes his joints so stiff, it is hard to get around.“I am unable to play sports because of my disability,” Stamper told ABC affiliate WXYZ.But there is another reason that Stamper remains so loyal to the university, he has undergone several surgeries to improve his quality of life — performed right at the At U of M’s C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital.While Stamper is not able to actually play with his team, that has not stopped him from being a full-time contributor. An organization called TEAM Impact connects kids with chronic illnesses with college teams.“It is a really awesome organization and I was lucky to be paired with Michigan basketball,” Stamper told WXYZ.Jude’s mother says he inspires her every day with his can-do attitude. “I often say what you focus on, you find and focusing on positive things, even when you think it can’t happen, it really can,” Courtney Stamper told WXYZ.Stamper was able to watch the Wolverines battle it out with Florida State last weekend in the Elite Eight match-up in Los Angeles.“It was really exciting because I have never done anything like that before,” he said.Now he and his family are heading to San Antonio as Michigan prepares to take on No. 11 seed Loyola.Some have even compared him to Loyola University Chicago’s Sister Jean Delores-Smith.Stamper said its a compliment to be linked to Sister Jean: “She seems really nice, so I am excited to meet her,” he said.As far as this weekend’s Final Four outcome, he is predicting the Wolverines beat the Ramblers 65 to 60.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

At one point, it has been claimed, eight people were living at the address.The sub-letting tenant had been paying £750 to Murrays to rent the property while collecting £1,800 from his sub-letting operation.Matters came to a head when the tenants reported the property to Bristol City Council, the case was highlighted by local media and both Murrays and the landlord realised what had been going on.Murrays Lettings Bristol evictions May 14, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
