Tipton County Corn Harvest 2 Weeks Away

first_img Previous articleTipton County Field UpdateNext articleDrought Puts New Technology to the Test Andy Eubank SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Aug 30, 2012 A phone call Thursday for a central Indiana HAT Field Update yielded some observations on Iowa crops too. John Hussey was making his way home from the Farm Progress Show via the Iowa and Illinois countryside, and he has seen a lot of good crops during his trip.“We do see some crops under stress but not like I thought I would see, and according to what I heard at the show I will see that as we go through southeastern Iowa through Illinois. We will see a lot of stressed crops. But we have not seen the heavy stress yet that we kind of thought we would see.”Back home in Tipton County the corn and soybeans look good and harvest is a couple of weeks away.“I just got a message that about the 20th of September our soybeans will be ready and probably around the 15th we might have some corn ready. But the crops are progressing at a much slower pace just because it’s cooled off some, we got some much needed rain, and it has slowed the crop maturity down considerably. Where we thought we would be harvesting right after Labor Day, we’re not going to be able to do that.”Once they start to see yield numbers on the monitor Hussy expects they will be more than acceptable.“Now I’m not looking for the crop we had last year which was very good in our area. I do think that we had enough stress in pollination that we do not have the pollination we should, but I think what we have and looked at, our crop is going to be good.”And what they’ve seen indicates well developed ears with good kernel depth and test weight.

Blogger sentenced to two years in prison

first_img Receive email alerts June 4, 2021 Find out more Organisation A district court in the western city of Ganja yesterday sentenced the blogger Bakhtiyar Hajiyev to two years in prison on a charge of evading military service. Hajiyev reacted calmly to the verdict, describing it as “unjust and politically motivated.” His brother said he would appeal.————–Netizen Bakhtiyar Hajiyev refused bail29 April 2011A second hearing in netizen Bahthiyar Hajiyev’s trial before a Nizami district court in the city of Ganja was held yesterday. Facing a charge of desertion (under article 321.1 of the penal code) brought against him in January, he was arrested on 4 March after calling on Facebook for demonstrations against the government. He faces two years behind bars if convicted.A graduate of Harvard and a former opposition candidate, Hajiyev has complained of being a victim of a politically-motivated trial linked to his online activities. In November 2010, he posted videos on social networks in which he condemned the results of legislative elections.During yesterday’s hearing, Hajiyev was allowed to take a seat next to his lawyers. Judge Emin Akhundov permitted a small amount of video footage to be taken but otherwise banned all forms of recording during the session. Hajiyev’s request for bail was turned down. A request for all charges to be dropped was not even examined by the court.Hajiyev, whose trial began on 19 April, complained of being the victim of repeated violence while held in prison and of being threatened with rape. The judge however refused to call witnesses over the conditions of his detention.His pre-trial detention has been extended twice. His lawyers have appealed against these decisions to the European Court of Human Rights.Reporters Without Borders urges the Azerbaijani authorities to release Hajiyev immediately and to drop the charges against him. The organization calls on the government to respect the international conventions that it has ratified by respecting freedom of expression.

Suspect in murder of University of Illinois at Chicago student became ‘angry’ when she ignored his catcalls: Prosecutors

first_imgUIC Police(CHICAGO) — The man accused of murdering a 19-year-old student in the parking garage on the University of Illinois at Chicago campus allegedly became “angry” when she ignored his catcalls, authorities said.Sophomore Ruth George was attacked after a Lyft dropped her off on campus just after 1:30 a.m. Saturday as she returned from a semi-formal event, according to a charging document for 26-year-old suspect Donald Thurman.One of George’s friends went back to her dorm while George walked alone to the parking garage on Halsted Street, where she had parked her car, prosecutors said. As she walked past a bus stop, Thurman allegedly noticed her and “thought she was pretty and tried talking to her,” but George ignored him and continued walking.Thurman, who was wearing a “distinctive white jacket,” was seen on surveillance video following George to where her car was parked, according to the court document. Thurman then allegedly catcalled her and tried to talk to her again, but George continued to ignore him. When George got to her car, Thurman allegedly “was angry that he was being ignored,” the charging document states. He then allegedly grabbed her neck from behind and put her in a choke hold, causing her to fall to the ground.While she was unconscious, Thurman allegedly threw George into the back of her car and sexually assaulted her, authorities said.George’s family became concerned when she didn’t return home, and they went to the parking garage with police after her phone’s location pinged there. Around 11 a.m. Saturday, her sisters found her body face-down in the backseat of her car with her pants pulled down and her bodysuit ripped, prosecutors said.Investigators found marks made from George’s shoes while she was being dragged on the scene, as well as a used condom in the car, according to the charging document.Surveillance video allegedly showed Thurman running from the parking garage about 35 minutes after he followed George inside the structure. The white jacket he was wearing at the time was found at his home, prosecutors said.Thurman was arrested when he returned to the area on Sunday and allegedly admitted during an interview that he choked George and threw her in the car. He admitted to sexually assaulting George but denied raping her, according to the court document. He also allegedly said that he knew his DNA would be “all over the scene.”He lives near campus but has no affiliation to the university, police said. Thurman is charged with first-degree murder and criminal sexual assault. At the time of George’s killing, Thurman was on parole for an armed robbery conviction. He and George did not know each other, police said.He was denied bond at his bail hearing Tuesday. It was not immediately clear whether he entered a plea or retained an attorney.George was an honor roll student and a member of a professional fraternity for medical-track students at the university, prosecutors said. She dreamed of becoming a physical therapist one day and had “a compassion for others,” UIC Chancellor Michael Amiridis said in a statement Monday.“As a campus community we have shed many tears for her over the last three days,” Amiridis said. “But our collective pain pales in comparison with the ordeal her family is and will be going through for days, months and years to come. Our thoughts and our hearts are with Ruthie’s family and friends this evening.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Viruses in Antarctic ecosystems

first_imgThis review seeks to highlight the potential importance of viruses in Antarctic ecosystems and describe the limited scope of Antarctic virus studies to date, including studies of marine, terrestrial and freshwater communities. Although much of the existing work focuses on the microbial community, there are also studies of virus infection in Antarctic animal and plant populations. We describe methodologies available for the study of viral ecology in the field and in calling for a more intensive research effort discuss how microbial ecology might benefit from the study of viruses in Antarctic ecosystems.last_img

The International Bathymetric Chart of the Arctic Ocean Version 4.0

first_imgBathymetry (seafloor depth), is a critical parameter providing the geospatial context for a multitude of marine scientific studies. Since 1997, the International Bathymetric Chart of the Arctic Ocean (IBCAO) has been the authoritative source of bathymetry for the Arctic Ocean. IBCAO has merged its efforts with the Nippon Foundation-GEBCO-Seabed 2030 Project, with the goal of mapping all of the oceans by 2030. Here we present the latest version (IBCAO Ver. 4.0), with more than twice the resolution (200 × 200 m versus 500 × 500 m) and with individual depth soundings constraining three times more area of the Arctic Ocean (∼19.8% versus 6.7%), than the previous IBCAO Ver. 3.0 released in 2012. Modern multibeam bathymetry comprises ∼14.3% in Ver. 4.0 compared to ∼5.4% in Ver. 3.0. Thus, the new IBCAO Ver. 4.0 has substantially more seafloor morphological information that offers new insights into a range of submarine features and processes; for example, the improved portrayal of Greenland fjords better serves predictive modelling of the fate of the Greenland Ice Sheet.last_img read more

In full: Union term card released for Michaelmas

first_imgYanis Varoufakis, Russell Brand, and Alexa Chung are among the speakers listed on the Oxford Union’s Michaelmas term card, Cherwell can report.The society will also play host to a large array of world leaders – including a panel hosting 5 of the Central Asian ‘Silk Road’ countries for the first time – with a term card possessing a clear political focus.Union President Stephen Horvath told Cherwell: “My vision for the Union is simple: we should offer members the chance to engage directly with premier speakers on important topics.“I was first drawn to the Union as a debater, and I wanted to ensure our line-up this term captured a range of viewpoints and brought them into conversation on seven controversial topics. The War on Terror debate, for example, includes diplomats, politicians, military leaders, and policing and security experts from three different countries – it is through the breadth of speakers in any one debate that members can really challenge their starting assumptions.”DiversityThe Union’s speaker events, debates, and panels planned for the term ahead feature a range of actors, world leaders, sportspeople, and thinkers – just over 35% of whom identify as women*. Around 9% of total invited speakers openly identify as LGBTQ+.Little Mix, an award-winning British pop group well known for their hit ‘Shout Out to My Ex’, account for four of the total 15 women* scheduled to present at speaker events next term.Despite a drop in the amount of international speakers from last term, there is a more global focus than in previous years. International speakers make up approximately 43% of the total.Union President Stephen Horvath told Cherwell: “Building on our progress in the last few terms, I am pleased that we once again are organising panels and head-to-head debates to offer deeper engagement, on topics ranging from modern slavery to the future of the Euro. I am also pleased that over a third of our speakers are female and that around a quarter are from BME backgrounds. ” 5. 8th November“This House Believes We Have Not Remembered Them”PropositionProfessor Catriona PennellDr Jenny MacleodOppositionSimon JenkinsSurgeon Commander Andrew Morrison MPMajor General Nicholas Caplin CB6. 15th November“This House Believes Private Schools are a Public Disaster”PropositionBrett WigdortzKarin Smyth MPOppositionBarnaby LenonWilliam Wragg MPSir Graham Brady MP7. 22nd November“This House Believes Ireland is Ready for Reunification” DebatesThe Union will host seven debates on Thursday evenings from first week to seventh week. At each event, there will be an emergency debate at 19:45 followed by the main debate at 20:30.Topics to be debated include retributive justice, private schools, the war on terror, as well the perennial No Confidence debate in Her Majesty’s Government. Debate speakers include Universities Minister Sam Gyimah, Dominic Grieve MP, and US Ambassador Gerald Feierstein.In addition to three panels, the Union will also host a range of special events, including the The Grand Final of the Union’s internal debating competition and a Euro Head to Head debate, which will take place the evening before a major European Council meeting.The Union’s Silk Road Panel, co-hosted with the Oxford Silk Road Society, will be the first time ambassadors from the Republics of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan sit on a panel together.Founding president of the Silk Road Society and event organiser, Marcello Fantoni, told Cherwell: “Our society is dedicated to the study of the culture, history, geography, and politics of the Silk Road, both ancient and modern.
