Taking a look at balancing food, energy and economics

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest January’s public program by the Environmental Professionals Network will look at humanity’s balancing act: producing enough food and energy, improving economies and social conditions, and protecting the environment, all while facing climate change and, by 2050, possibly 2 billion more people on the planet.“They’re enormous challenges,” said the network’s coordinator, David Hanselmann, a lecturer in the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State University.The network is a statewide professional group based in the college’s School of Environment and Natural Resources.The program, called “Adaptive, Resilient Land Management: Goals for the 21st Century,” is from 7:15 to 9:40 a.m. Jan. 26 in Ohio State’s Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center, 2201 Fred Taylor Drive, Columbus.Speaking will be:* Allison Thomson, science and research director at Washington, D.C.-based Field to Market: The Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture. The alliance, according to its website, works “to create opportunities across the agricultural supply chain for continuous improvements in productivity, environmental quality and human well-being.”* Ernie Shea, president and CEO of Lutherville, Maryland-based Solutions from the Land and coordinator of its North American Climate Smart Agriculture Alliance. The alliance is helping farmers and foresters understand and adapt to climate change while maintaining their productivity.Moderating the discussion will be Fred Yoder, a corn, wheat and soybean farmer from Madison County, Ohio, and a past president of the National Corn Growers Association. In 2013, President Obama honored Yoder as a “Champion for Change” for his sustainability and climate change work.“Agricultural producers, other landowners and our broader society face enormous challenges and opportunities locally, nationally and globally,” Hanselmann said. “With little exaggeration, life itself hinges on our success in these matters.”Registration for the event is $10 and includes breakfast. The deadline to register is Jan. 22. Details and a link to register are at go.osu.edu/Jan2016EPN.Contact Hanselmann at hanselmann.3@osu.edu or 614-247-1908 for more information.Sponsoring the event are the Ohio Corn and Wheat Growers Association, Ohio Soybean Council, and Ohio Farm Bureau Federation.last_img read more

Hotmail Offers Interactive Emails from LinkedIn, LivingSocial, Netflix & Posterous

first_imgmike melanson Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Whenever I’m checking my email, one of two things can happen. I get an email, click on a link, and 20 minutes later I’m not sure how I ended up on Facebook but yes, I would love to attend a dinner party next Thursday. If I’m truly task-focused, however, I’ll at the very least end up with a screen full of so many new tabs that I forget which tab I’m on in the first place. Either way, email can set me off on a confusing and messy adventure and Microsoft has an answer I’d love to see become a standard.Today at the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco, Microsoft is announcing a new type of interactive email that keeps you focused on getting through your email while still being able to look at pictures, watch videos, accept friend requests and more.Dharmesh Mehta, director of Windows Live, says that 90% of all email contains links to some deeper content, such as YouTube, LivingSocial, LinkedIn or otherwise and that people receive more than 200 of these types of emails every week. Last December, the company started helping users with these sorts of emails with something called Active Views. Active Views would take links in your inbox and turn them into embedded content. That way the YouTube link your friend sent isn’t just a jumbled collection of characters, it’s that video of the cat falling of the table. Or whatever. Whatever the video, you could experience it directly from within your email, rather than opening a new browser tab. Since December, Microsoft says Hotmail has served up more than 1 billion links in this fashion. That number is about to grow drastically. Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#Microsoft#news#NYT#web 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… The company is announcing a round of new partnerships today. Within these emails, users will be able to immediately respond to connection requests on LinkedIn, add movies to their queue on Netflix, see deals that are active when they open their email rather than old expired ones on LivingSocial and even comment directly on posts sent to them from Posterous. The feature works by allowing partner companies send emails with embedded JavaScript functionality, which Hotmail then runs in a fully sandboxed (and therefor secure) environment. Currently, the feature only works on the webmail version of Hotmail, not on mobile or in an email client, but external functionality could come in the future. Will we see this become a standard that’s used across email clients? Mehta says that, “the notion is that this will move to a standard at some point. We don’t generally throw out a standard and see if people will come.” We asked if we would see Facebook added to this list in the near future and while Mehta said Microsoft didn’t have anything to announce on that front at this time, we expect that those Facebook friend requests and event invites aren’t far off. After all, 16% of all email in Hotmail is a Facebook notification of some sort.last_img read more
