Wet spring puts planting season at risk for Alberta farmers

Wet spring puts planting season at risk for Alberta farmers by Kaitlin Lee Posted May 1, 2017 7:29 am MDT Related Stories One-million acres of Alberta fields still covered in unharvested crops AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Alberta farmers still dealing with one million acres of unharvested crops have another problem delaying planting season: a very wet spring.Some areas received double the amount of precipitation than usually seen in April.Alberta Barley Chair Jason Lenz said they’ve reached the point of saturation on many of these fields.“That’s the real concern for producers, because you know, things are going to have to dry out before they can even get equipment in,” Lenz said.Farmers are also going to have to deal with ruts left behind by crops that were harvested last fall.Lenz says there’s only a short window to get planting.“Once we get past the middle of May, you know closer to that May 20 time period, there is definitely a detrimental effect to getting those crops in later,” he said.“The risk is that first fall frost — you get that frost too early and the crops aren’t mature, it has a dramatic effect — negative effect — on quality.”Lenz added that they really haven’t had a dry April for six or seven years.“We’re desperately waiting for things to dry out, and get into more of a dry pattern,” he said.

Leonard scores 36 points as Toronto Raptors beat Butler Sixers 113102

TORONTO — The Philadelphia 76ers might be a different team. But it was a similar result for the Toronto Raptors.Kawhi Leonard scored 36 points to lift the league-leading Raptors to a 113-102 victory over Jimmy Butler and the new-look Sixers on Wednesday, Toronto’s 13th consecutive win over Philadelphia at home.Jonas Valanciunas scored a season-high 26 points, while Serge Ibaka had 18 for the Raptors (21-5).Leonard connected on a season-high 5-for-6 from three-point range.Butler had 38 points to lead Philly (17-9), while JJ Redick added 25. The Raptors roared past Philly 129-112 on Oct. 30 in Toronto, but less than two weeks later the Sixers upped the ante, acquiring Butler from Minnesota in a deal that drastically altered the Eastern Conference landscape.“It’s very different,” Sixers coach Brett Brown said of his new-look team. “But the fact is we haven’t won up here. It’s a combination of them being very good, and us sort of growing our program. . . I think the last game we played them, this year, this team, as it sits, is very different.”The Sixers led for most of the first half, in part because of Toronto’s horrible shooting — going 3-for-12 from three-point range — and looking lackadaisical on the defensive end.The Raptors finally found some energy in the third quarter and took a 78-77 lead into the fourth. A 9-0 run put the Raptors up by nine points over their Eastern Conference rival, and when Valanciunas took a short pass from C.J. Miles and threw down a huge dunk, it put the Raptors up by 11 with 7:53 to play.Leonard put an exclamation mark on Toronto’s late-game surge when he grabbed a rebound and sprinted coast to coast to throw down a dunk. The emphatic play gave the Raptors a 15-point lead. Butler scored nine straight points for the Sixers, but it barely made a dent in the Raptors’ lead.The Raptors beat the Sixers 28-12 on fast break points, and their bench outscored Philadelphia’s 41-18.Earlier in the day, social media was buzzing about ESPN’s interview with Kyle Lowry, who didn’t beat around the bush about the DeMar DeRozan trade and his relationship with team president Masai Ujiri.“I felt betrayed because he felt betrayed because that’s my guy. That’s my best friend,” Lowry said.When asked about Ujiri, he said “He’s the president of the basketball operation and that’s it. For me, I come here and do my job.”Ujiri laughed off the comment in an afternoon interview saying “Kyle Lowry is always mad at me.”The night, dubbed “Mandela 100,” celebrated Nelson Mandela, who would have turned 100 this year. Former Raptors all-star Chris Bosh, Blue Jays legend Joe Carter, and former Chelsea star Didier Drogba were in attendance as part of the festivities and received a loud ovation.The Raptors, who were coming off a 106-103 loss to Denver, were once again plagued by poor shooting. Leonard connected on Toronto’s only three-pointer in the first quarter, and the Sixers took an early nine-point lead.Toronto connected on just two of nine three-point attempts as the Raptors’ struggles continued into the second. A three-pointer by Leonard with 37 seconds left in the half capped a 13-0 run that gave Toronto a seven-point lead. The Raptors took a 53-49 advantage into the halftime break.The Raptors’ tough schedule continues through the next eight games, which are all against opponents with winning records. Toronto is in Brooklyn on Friday, then back home to host conference rival Milwaukee on Sunday.The Raptors face the Sixers again on Dec. 22 at Philadelphia. Lori Ewing, The Canadian Press read more

Joest highlights importance of advanced measurement technology

first_imgIn an extremely tough economic climate, condition monitoring is gaining momentum in the mining industry as a cost saving option that enables plant operators to monitor equipment output, pre-empt failures and capture valuable long term data on plant performance. While conventional condition monitoring tracks a specific parameter of condition to identify a change indicative of a developing fault, vibrating and screening equipment specialist Joest says it has added advanced testing and measuring technology to the mix, helping customers achieve a continuous supply of quality production tonnage, while protecting company assets and reducing the total cost of ownership.“Our activities in this area are focused on mitigating the risks associated with each unique customer plant,” Theresa Walton, General Manager Service at Joest, comments. “We differentiate ourselves in the marketplace not only through the quality of our products, but also by the high level of service we offer and by the advanced testing and measurement technology we’ve developed. Joest has never shied away from investing in technology and this capability allows us to enhance our offering to customers, enabling the early identification of conditions that would shorten the equipment’s lifespan — before they develop into a major failure. The longer we can extend the life of our equipment on site, the better value the customer will extract from this investment.”Walton predicts that the role of condition monitoring/testing and measurement in the future is likely to increase in order to counter a growing trend in the mining industry worldwide to specify lighter screens and associated support structures when a plant is first designed, in an effort to contain costs. Joest says it tailors its test and measurement technology to suit each customer’s specific needs, taking into account skills levels at the plant, as well as production and quality requirements, and linking these factors to existing systems. Based on this customised approach, the company is in the process of installing sensors on its equipment at several customer plants.“However, installing dozens of sensors doesn’t take away from the need to maintain the equipment to operate within its specifications and to refurbish it within appropriate cycles,” she comments. “There is also an important role for human observation of equipment and performance. All these factors combine to extend the life of the plant.” Kenny Mayhew-Ridgers, Joest’s General Manager for Engineering, adds that in the absence of a standard commercial solution available on the market to offer high end condition monitoring on vibrating equipment, this South African-owned OEM “conducts in-house research and development to arrive at the right approach for each application, in collaboration with its customers.”“We find that the condition monitoring vibration sensors associated with SCADA systems, which were originally designed for applications in rotating equipment, cannot provide the required measurement range for our vibrating equipment, because we far exceed its maximum levels,” he says. “This is why we include ‘test and measurement technology’ into our approach when advanced condition monitoring is required. Every site has different demands and it’s extremely important to listen to these needs and understand the level of skills and capabilities at a given plant. We believe that by working with the OEM, who has an absolute understanding of the equipment’s characteristics, plant operators can be assured of the ideal monitoring technology.” Before its screens are despatched to customer sites, Joest tests each unit to record the baseline measurements, and once installed, further tests are conducted to establish the influence of the plant structure and full load conditions on the unit and determine the tolerable variances. These measurements are proving invaluable in flagging deviations and achieving long term optimisation of equipment performance.last_img read more

EXCLUSIVE Snow Software holds ski trip for 650 global staff

first_imgEXCLUSIVE: Technology organisation Snow Software has taken 650 of its global employees to Engelberg, Switzerland to celebrate achieving its annual sales target, as well as to support its employee engagement and teambuilding strategies.The employer-funded ski trip is taking place between Saturday 13 January and Tuesday 16 January 2018, with 650 of Snow Software’s 720 global employees being flown to the ski resort in Engelberg. All employees based across the organisation’s 23 operating countries were invited to attend, including those who work on a part-time basis, work from home, or are currently on parental leave.The ski trip is part of Snow Software’s annual sales incentive, which is aligned with the organisation’s values, internally known as Snow Spirits. In particular, the incentive is linked to the value of ‘being all in for the win’, emphasising the teamwork and cohesion across the business that is required in order to hit the target. If the target is met, the organisation redefines its employees as ‘The Gold Team’, rewarding them with the Engelberg ski trip.The holiday is also designed to connect employees within the business, with staff from different countries and business functions being mixed across the three hotels used by the organisation, as well as during planned activities.Prior to the ski trip, employees can select a range of activities to take part in during the break. The range of options includes beginner ski classes, guided monastery tours, spa trips, ice sculpture building and dinner groups. The majority of the physical activities offered are planned to encourage teamwork and competition.During the trip, Snow Software also holds a celebratory presentation, featuring different speakers, to look back on the successes achieved during the past year, as well as looking ahead the coming year. This year, the organisation will also present a fundraising award to the group of employees who raised the most money for children’s charity We See Hope.Snow Software has run its global incentive scheme for nine years. To date, it has reached its target and held the corresponding ski trip seven times. The organisation plans a ski trip to resonate with its name and the snow connection.The ski trip is communicated to employees throughout the year as part of its organisation-wide communications. It is also discussed at interviews and during the organisation’s on-boarding process. In quarter four, the level of communications around the trip is increased to include weekly updates from the chief executive officer, updating staff on how close they are to hitting the target, as well as encouraging employees to share stories and pictures from previous trips.Snow Software has employees based in Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, United Arab Emirates, UK and the US, all of whom are eligible to participate in the trip.Eva Lessing, vice president, human resources at Snow Software, said: “It’s definitely embedded into our culture. It’s part of who we are. It’s a way to live our Snow Spirit, the values. In terms of driving innovation, connecting people from different functions and different countries creates better products and services for our customers. I would say the biggest outcome is engagement, connectedness, and focus on our customers. […] The investment we make in this and the return [means] it’s so worth it.“Some of our smaller offices sometimes feel that ‘we’re so few [people]’, but then when we meet [in Engelberg], everyone connects and everyone [employees have] been talking to on the phone, emailing or skyping [meets, it means] we form some very close connections and it’s so much easier. We see that these trips [carry] through the energy and the connectedness throughout the year, so that people don’t hesitate to ask for help or give help between countries. The whole thing is about connecting people in different ways.“We have a really tough target, and if we hit that, we are extraordinary. When we are extraordinary, we get to be [the] Gold Team and then we deserve to celebrate in style. The rest of the year we focus on the customer, but this weekend, we will recognise our own achievements.”last_img read more

Confimed Consumer Engagement on the iPad is Complex

first_img-Visual Attention: the ad’s ability to grab the reader and keep him on the page-Accessibility: whether the ad has “entry points” that enable the user to engage the iPad’s swiping and tapping features-Propulsion: whether those entry points actually engaged the reader, pulling him deeper into the experiencePublishers are all clearly interested in how folks use their mag apps and some are forming focus groups to determine likes and dislikes, but Time Inc. has pushed the concept into the realm of hard-core science.According to the companies, this is the first time that biometrics research has been used for app ad engagement. Mike Haggerty, UM’s senior vice president and director of research and marketing accountability, and Betsy Frank, Time Inc.’s chief research and insights officer, presented the study yesterday at Advertising Age’s Media Evolved event in New York.Can you picture a sales rep walking into an agency and unfurling an EEG readout? It’ll be the new ABC statement. “Here, you can see how iPad user #136 reacted to the video in the Audi ad. Look at those spikes! His reading is off the charts!”But I kid, a little. Even if publishers are treating tablets as a sort of alien to be poked and prodded, I’m sure studies like this will contribute to a valuable pool of data, which, I hope, will somehow be collected together for the industry to share.In any case, this kind of study is very revealing in the sense of just how unknown this new digital frontier is to publishers-and how important they think it is to them. Bill Mickey is executive editor of Audience Development magazine. Time Inc. recently teamed up with UM, a marketing agency, and EmSense, a firm that studies quantitative neurometrics while people shop and look at advertisements, to strap electrodes to iPad owners. Literally.The three companies just completed a study to determine how iPad users are interacting with advertisements in magazine apps-in this case, Time Inc. ones. EmSense brought the science, measuring neuromatic responses of 180 iPad owners through a combination of EEG readings, eye tracking, surveys and one-on-one interviews.Key findings have revealed that user interaction on the device is “complex.” Results are being crunched from 24 million data points, but the companies have zeroed in on three engagement elements:last_img read more

Kolkata Police creates short film to spread awareness on fake news

first_imgKolkata: Kolkata Police has prepared a video and uploaded the same on Facebook, creating awareness to check circulation of “fake news”, mainly through social media.Following direction of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, the police had been creating awareness among people on how circulation of fake news may lead to deterioration of law and order. The police are also keeping a watch to take immediate action against rumour mongers as spreading fake news is a “punishable offence”.At the end of the 1.08 minute long video, Kolkata Police has left a message that reads: “Do not post anything on social media without confirming an input you may have received. It may lead to confusion, tension and/or unrest. Do not share such posts either. It is a punishable offence.”In the video an office-goer and a youth are seen waiting at a bus-stop. The youth asks the office-goer why there was no bus on the particular route. In reply, the office-goer says that they would not get any bus there as he has received a phone call from one of his colleagues saying that some trouble had initiated at Moulali-Mallick Bazar and it is ‘communal in nature’. The office-goer leaves the bus-stop, saying that he has to reach office by foot.Right at that moment the youth receives a call from another friend, whom he tells over phone that he was yet to get a bus due to ‘communal tension’ at Moulali-Mallick Bazar. Immediately, his friend says that there was a need to give an update in social media. The youth also says that he will be sharing the same in a social media group. After the telephonic conversation, the youth cross checks with a pedestrian whether there was any trouble at Moulali-Mallick Bazar. The pedestrian replies that there was “nothing as such”. The youth finally realises the mistake he was going to do by sharing the “wrong information” on social media.It may be mentioned that Kolkata Police often posts various messages on social networking sites to make people aware of the adverse affects of circulating wrong information.last_img read more

Tradeweb Reaches Benchmark for TBAMBS Trades

Alterations to the TMPG’s standards included increased fines of up to 2 percent of the notational volume of failed TBA-MBS trades, and during February and[COLUMN_BREAK]March, the TMPG recorded record “”round-robin”” volumes of $122 billion and $159 billion respectively.In a company statement, Tradeweb noted that a lack of sufficient liquidity in the marketplace since 2009 has severely limited participants’ ability to sell mortgage pools, and Tradeweb cites the prevalence of “”failed deliveries”” that often created a “”chain of matched fails in a closed loop, known as a ’round-robin'”” as the catalyst behind the company’s decision to debut its new technology. Before the launch of its “”round-robin”” functionality, clients were burdened with “”assigning”” trades from dealer to dealer through a manual, time-consuming process.Commenting on the platform, Tradeweb’s client, “”BlackRock””:www.blackrock.com/, provided feedback, with managing director and head of rates trading, Colm Murtagh, noting, “”The ability to electronically pair-off TBA trades with dealers has brought significant efficiencies to reducing risk and mitigating the likelihood of failed trades in the mortgage marketplace. We are proud to have collaborated on an innovative solution that is helping address a systemic concern for market participants.””””Tradeweb has a long history of partnering with the industry to deliver innovative trading solutions that improve efficiency and workflow in global markets,”” added Billy Hult, President of Tradeweb. “”The accelerated success of the ’round-robin’ technology clearly demonstrates our leadership in electronic trading and commitment to improving the world’s largest institutional mortgage marketplace.””According to Tradeweb, TBA-MBS represents the majority of all institutional residential mortgage tradinG.
