Ohio State University plant pathologist Anne Dorrance says scouting is a must for growers who planted corn or soybeans despite wet fields. Dorrance suggests those farmers dig up a few plans to make sure the mesocotyl is healthy – as that will help the plant get established. If molds or fungi have gotten to the plant – she says that white section of the plant will be brown and rotting – and farmers may have to replant. Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Farmers Should Scout Wet Soils SHARE Farmers Should Scout Wet Soils SHARE While some farmers in the U.S. are hoping for rain, DTN reports those in the eastern and northern Corn Belt want the rain to end for now – as rain-soaked soils have delayed planting for farmers in Ohio, Indiana, Minnesota, Michigan, North Dakota and Wisconsin. Plant pathologists say young corn and soybean seedlings that sit in wet soils can become easy victims for molds and fungi. Flooded fields can also harm corn plants, and heavy rains can leave a thick crust on fields that can distort or suffocate seedlings. DTN Meteorologist Bryce Anderson predicts near to above normal precipitation in the Midwest through June.

Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Subscribe Single-Family Rental Securitizations Get a Boost About Author: Xhevrije West The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago A drop in first-time homeownership in the U.S. due to the lack of affordable housing has given single-family rental (SFR) securitizations a boost.Moody’s Investors Service said in a report that housing affordability for first-time homebuyers has been decreasing since 2000. This phenomenon has, in turn, provided a higher demand for rentals in the market.Moody’s reported that the lack of affordability for first-time homeowners, due to a decrease in personal income and rising home prices, has hit the Generation Y cohort, especially hard as those in their 20s and 30s seek to form households and purchase homes.”A dearth of ‘for-sale’ inventory of mid-to-lower price homes, combined with ongoing tight credit conditions, forces many to remain in rentals,” Moody’s said. “In addition, many potential first-time home buyers are burdened with high student loans that further constrain their buying capabilities. As a consequence, demand for rentals is remaining very strong for the limited number of available rental properties.”The U.S. Census Bureau reported that the rental vacancy is now at 7 percent, down from 11 percent in 2009.Moody’s believes that the “drop in vacancy bodes well for the SFRs that we rate, especially regarding anticipated future enhanced rental revenue as Gen Y renters are a large component of SFR renters. This also portends higher liquidation proceeds on potential sales of SFR properties.”The report noted that rental rates will continue benefit SFR securitizations. Moody’s said that the increasingly unattainable goal of homeownership for many and the low national rental vacancy rate will raise rental demand and rents, both of which bode well for SFR cash flows.”Stronger demand for rental properties will benefit SFR securitizations by enhancing borrower and transaction-specific revenue streams and net cash flows, while also potentially increasing recoveries on foreclosures of underlying properties, should the need arise,” the report said. “The continued financial strength of borrowers and compliance with transaction performance metrics are more likely in this healthy industry environment.” Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Share Save Previous: Can Banks Handle Another Financial Crisis?

Following-up 2015’s Digitonium, the nine-track collection marks Turkuaz’s fifth studio album to date. Merging together the worlds of funk, alternative, rock, R&B, and psychedelia and punctuated by deft musicality and show-stopping singalongs, Turkuaz’s latest studio effort is a funkified adventure. The rainbow clad funk-outfit had the fortune of working with the Talking Heads’ Jerry Harrison, who produced the track “If I Ever Fall Asleep.”Turkuaz has unveiled a video of a live in-studio performance of Life In The City’s “Make You Famous”, the album’s third track. The new video was filmed at Turkuaz’s own, Dave Brandwein’s Galaxy Smith Studios in Brooklyn, NY.Earmilk premiered the new in-studio footage. As the band shared with them,It plays on the topsy-turvy world of touring and making music for a living. There are some references to the ups and downs of the road, the “hurry up and wait” lifestyle, and some of the well-known pitfalls of the industry. It’s meant to display a lot of the chaos we can feel day to day, and I think the music does a good job of simulating that feeling for the listener. The lyrics remain playful but like with a lot of the record, they explore the negative as well as the positive. Overall though, it’s a fun track, both on the record and the in-studio live version we did.Watch the official video for “Make You Famous” below:Turkuaz – “Make You Famous”[Video: Turkuaz]Turkuaz recently announced 19 newly added early-2019 dates to their already extensive Life In The City Tour. The new shows will bring the colorful funk powerhouse through the Southwest and West Coast.Turkuaz will be joined by Paris Monster, Object Heavy, and Eminence Ensemble for these newly announced dates. Starting off the winter leg in Fayetteville, AR, January 23rd, the band will then head through the Lone Star state for a three-night run, with stops in Dallas, Austin, and Houston, January 24th through 26th. The band then makes two Arizona stops, January 29th and 30th, before heading up the West Coast, with stops in Solana Beach, CA; Los Angeles; San Francisco; Ashland, OR; Bend, OR; Portland; and Seattle. Turkuaz will wrap up the winter leg of their Life In The City Tour, with stops in Bellingham, WA; Missoula, MT; Bozeman, MT; Frisco, CO; and a tour-closing show at Denver’s Ogden Theatre on February 16th.Comprised of Dave Brandwein (guitar, vocals), Taylor Shell (bass), Craig Brodhead (guitar, keys), Michelangelo Carubba (drums), Chris Brouwers (trumpet, keys), Greg Sanderson (tenor sax), Josh Schwartz (baritone sax, vocals), Sammi Garett (vocals), and Shira Elias (vocals), Turkuaz is riding the high of a huge summer, which included a sold-out show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre opening for Greensky Bluegrass in addition to high-profile festival gigs nationwide. The nine-piece’s upcoming months will also feature a special performance at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY, on October 19th before the band closes out 2018 with a New Year’s Eve show at The Palladium in Worcester, MA.For all ticketing details head here.
Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… “We’re selling shovels at the beginning of a gold rush,” is how co-founder Matt Galligan put it on a call today. “You want to add location, just come to us — it’s done.” Though four-person SimpleGeo still measures its age in months, it already has a price sheet: free, $399/month for small businesses and $2,499/month for custom implementations.This sort of business model for this particular market has been forecast for some time. 18 months ago analyst firm ABI Research, for example, made the following prediction:“Location-based mobile social networking revenues will reach $3.3 billion by 2013, but successful business models may differ from what many observers expect,” says ABI Research principal analyst Dominique Bonte. “While location-based advertising integrated with sophisticated algorithms holds a lot of promise, the current reality rather points to licensing and revenue-sharing models as the way forward for social networking start-ups to grow their customer base and reach profitability…”Twitter acquired oft-compared competitor GeoAPI late in 2009 but uptake of Twitter’s location data has been slow. Traditional vendors have also long offered geographic data. Those vendors may fall short of developer expectations if SimpleGeo can deliver things like an effective iPhone SDK, OAuth authentication and dynamic data from sources like Twitter and Flickr.Can SimpleGeo jump to the head of the new location-based parade and capture what’s expected to be a huge market? Adding 1 million location-based objects every hour to its database sounds like a great place to come at that market from. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting marshall kirkpatrick Location is going to be big, that seems to be the consensus among geeks, but just how big is it going to be? One metric to wrap your brain around came out over Twitter earlier today. According to SimpleGeo founder Joe Stump, the still-unlaunched but much anticipated service is now indexing more than 1 million location-based objects every hour.That’s going to make for a very rich database that other services can tap into. SimpleGeo has taken $1.5m in angel funding from of Silicon Valley’s biggest-name investors to try and become the go-to geolocation database resource for the next generation of location-aware applications.The company was founded by former Digg Chief Architect Joe Stump and the founder of AOL-acquired Social Thing Matt Galligan. Stump explained his company’s model to VentureBeat late last year:The company told Liz Gannes of Gigaom in November that it received 600 beta applications on its first day after announcing itself publicly. Gannes wrote at the time:“Location-based devices only provide a latitude and a longitude, sometimes an altitude,” he said. “What they don’t provide is a ZIP Code, city, state, county, weather data, messages and photos posted near the site. They don’t provide business listings, Wikipedia entries, census data (for demographics), articles written or posted near the location,” all of which SimpleGeo does. For example, a location-based game set in San Francisco could accurately display its players gleaming in the California sun, or obscured by Golden Gate fog, based on the real-time weather data from around town.

(Image: Human Rights Tribunal chair Shirish Chotalia. APTN/ file photo)APTN National NewsOTTAWA–The Federal Court issued a stinging rebuke to the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal Wednesday in a ruling overturning a decision to dismiss a discrimination complaint against the federal Aboriginal Affairs department over its funding to First Nations child and welfare services.Federal Court Judge Anne Mactavish ordered the tribunal to again hear the complaint, but with a different panel.Mactavish found that Conservative-appointed tribunal chair Shirish Chotalia committed a litany of errors when she decided to dismiss the complaint which was launched by the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society and the Assembly of First Nations.Mactavish found that the tribunal erred when it failed to provide its reasons for deciding the complaint could not proceed under the Canadian Human Rights Act. The judge also found that the tribunal erred when it found there was nothing to compare Aboriginal Affairs department’s handling of child and welfare services, despite the federal government’s own internal use of provincial standards as a benchmark.“The process that (the tribunal) followed in this case was not fair,” wrote Mactavish.The society and the AFN have argued that Aboriginal Affairs discriminates against First Nations children by failing to fund First Nations child welfare services at the same level as the provinces.Chotalia ruled on March 14, 2011, that First Nations on-reserve child welfare services could not be compared to provincial child welfare services. Her ruling handed a victory to the federal government which had been vigorously fighting the complaint.Amnesty International and the Chiefs of Ontario are also backing the complaint.Chotalia has been beset by troubles of her own. An internal investigation upheld claims of harassment leveled by tribunal employees against Chotalia.Aboriginal Affairs was also forced to launch its only internal probe after it emerged department officials were spying on Cindy Blackstock, the head of the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society.
Then-sophomore defender Austin Bergstrom (25) kicks the ball during a game against Michigan in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament on Nov. 9 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU won, 1-0.Credit: Lantern File PhotoComing off a three-week road swing, the Ohio State men’s soccer team will prepare to host its first conference game this weekend.After playing to a 3-3 double-overtime draw against in-state rival No.11 Akron on Wednesday, the Buckeyes are scheduled to take on another ranked opponent in No. 13 Penn State at 3 p.m. on Sunday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.Before its game against Akron, OSU was on a four-game losing streak, trying to find its momentum. Despite the team’s disappointing start to the season, it did not let it affect its mindset going into Wednesday’s game as the Buckeyes came from behind to tie the game against Akron.“We would have liked to get the win,” senior midfielder and co-captain Zach Mason said. “But I think it showed a lot about the heart this team has and the character to bounce back from a tough stretch and play a ranked opponent toe-to-toe; so I think we’re headed in the right direction.”OSU proved to be able to keep up with a ranked competitor, but the Buckeyes will face another heavy challenge as they prepare to face No.13 Penn State.“They are very solid and organized all over the pitch, and they have a few attacking plays where they can unlock the door and score a goal,” senior defender and co-captain Liam Doyle said. “So as hard as they are to beat, they’re also dangerous at getting a goal or two, so we have to be on our game against them.”Mason said that the team would really have to take its chances this weekend because it is going to be a 90-minute battle.Despite the challenge OSU will likely face, Doyle said the team would like the fans to come out and support the team on Sunday.“I think Ohio State and Penn State have a rivalry in a lot of sports and what else is there to do on Sunday afternoon a 3 p.m.?” Doyle said. “Might as well come out in the nice weather and enjoy the game.”About the Nittany LionsPenn State comes into Sunday’s game after defeating 10th-ranked Indiana 1-0 on Sunday in University Park, Pennsylvania. Penn State stands at 4-1-1 overall and 1-0-0 in Big Ten play. Freshman forward Marc Curran leads the team with six goals, while senior midfielder Brian James has three goals and one assist. Senior goalkeeper Matt Bersano is 4-1-1 overall with a 0.48 goals against average and .880 save percentage and has played a total of 470 minutes.What’s next?Following Sunday’s action, the Buckeyes are scheduled to take on Dayton at 7 p.m. on Friday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.
