first_imgThe Trinidad and Tobago government led the tribute to ace pannist and music composer, Ken “Professor” Philmore, who died at the San Fernando Hospital, on Sunday, six days after he was involved in a vehicular accident.“Through his music he did this country proud wherever he played, bringing recognition not only to our country but to our beloved national instrument, the steelpan. He showed us that through dedication and love for the art form, it was possible to become one of the best,” Communications Minister Stuart Young said in a statement.Car overturned Philmore, 58, had been in the Intensive Care Unit of the hospital since Monday after he sustained serious injuries in the accident when his vehicle overturned on the Solomon Hochoy Highway in Claxton Bay, last Monday – Republic Day.Pan RoyaltyThe government statement said the pannist was “widely acknowledged as pan royalty in Trinidad and Tobago and was arguably one of the top steelpan soloists in the world.”.The Trinidad Express newspaper reported that the family had been informed earlier that there was no hope of recovery and doctors removed tubes from the life support machine, in the presence of family members.People shocked, in a daze The president of Pan Trinbago, Keith Diaz, said the steel pan fraternity remains in shock as the death of the ace pannist, while the Mayor of San Fernando, Junia Regrello, said many people were still in a daze following the news.“This is really a sad day. Anywhere you turn, people as asking, is it true?”Philmore composed several songs for the annual Panorama competition, including “Pan By Storm” (1990), “Pan Ecstacy” (1991), and “Pan in the Party” (1992).In 1988, he appeared with Tina Turner and Lionel Hampton in New York. In 1996 he was honored by Pan Trinbago as one of the most promising arrangers.He appeared as a special guest with Mercer Ellington, son of “Duke” Ellington and was featured on the title cut of Ellington’s album Queenie Pie Reggae. He has also appeared in concert with the world renowned Latin American musician Tito Puente.last_img read more

Join the county’s Healthy Homes volunteer program this fall to learn how to make your home and your community safer and healthier for all.The Healthy Homes volunteer training covers the many ways our homes can affect our health, and teaches you how to reduce the health risks that are common in our homes. Topics include mold and moisture, ventilation, indoor air quality, exposure to toxins, lead, asthma triggers, pest control, general safety hazards and much more. The training also includes field trips and opportunities to put what you’re learning into practice.“The training was absolutely worth attending,” said Healthy Homes volunteer Youssoufa Hassana, who attended the last volunteer training. “The information is so useful and practical that I use it in my daily life. It was a lot of fun and I am enjoying volunteering for such a valuable program.”No prior experience or knowledge is needed to become a Healthy Homes volunteer—the free training course will teach you what you need to know. The training is geared toward individuals who enjoy working with others to improve their own health and the health of their community. You’ll learn from a range of expert speakers and get hands-on practice that will prepare you to do in-home visits. Every Healthy Homes volunteer also receives ongoing support with additional training, educational resources, checklists, referrals, and call-in support.The next 10-week training course starts Tuesday, September 15. Classes are held from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. each Tuesday through November 17. Healthy Homes trainees also complete at least 30 hours of volunteer service to the Healthy Homes Program as their schedule allows. In pairs, Healthy Homes volunteers visit houses, rental units, and childcare centers and provide guidance and suggestions for low or no cost actions to reduce housing-related health risks. Volunteers can also staff booths at community events, give presentations to civic groups, work on special projects, and write articles for community newsletters, along with other volunteer outreach activities. Opportunities to volunteer vary in time of day and day of the week so that volunteers can fit participating in the program into their schedules.Classes are held at the Thurston County Public Health and Social Services Department at 412 Lilly Road NE in Olympia, across from St. Peter’s Hospital.

South African men show their support for Movember

admin no comments

first_img26 November 2015Several South African men steered clear of their shaving creams and razors for the whole of November as part of the international campaign to build awareness of men’s health issues.The Movember Foundation, an initiative started in Australia in 2003, is driven by the idea that men should live happier, healthier and longer lives. The initiative undertakes fundraising for research in male specific diseases and educates the public about men’s health issues, such as prostate and testicular cancer, mental health and physical inactivity.Watch why this South African shaved his beard, which was longer than 20cm:About the campaignGlobally, stigma surrounds diseases that affect men, and often men don’t talk about such “embarrassing topics”. The theme for this year’s campaign is “Shaped by Experience”.The underlying message was that if you chose to live well and followed a healthy lifestyle, and paid attention to your health and the warning signs, you could help to shape your future, said Garron Gsell, chief executive officer and founder of the Movember Foundation.Movember encourages men to become Mo Bros – as supporters of the campaign are affectionately known – by signing up on the Movember website. The rules require each Mo Bro to start clean shaven on 1 Movember, and to grow and groom a moustache for the entire month, effectively becoming a walking, talking billboard for the 30 days of Movember.Through the action of growing a mo, and encouraging others to do the same, Mo Bros prompt private and public conversation around the often ignored issues of men’s health.With the support of the women in their lives, or Mo Sistas, who are also asked to sign up on the Movember website, Movember is driving the message that early detection is key. Annual health checks are vital, along with a monthly testicular self-examination which can help make you aware of your body and able to note any changes.See Local Mo Bros show off their moustaches: We driving around #jozi with our @Jeep_SA packed full.

The foundation has partnered with its health partners the Cancer Association of South Africa (Cansa), the Prostate Cancer Foundation and the South African Depression and Anxiety Group (Sadag) to formulate local programmes to help men in South Africa.The groups hosted various activities throughout the month to fundraise and encourage the public to stay active.Read about some of the activities:See you shortly for #promenademondays and a good skate session #CapeTown #movember pic.twitter.com/t5wqOnyDNQ— Movember RSA (@MovemberRSA) November 23, 2015The Great #Movember Half Marathon event held in Mpumalanga today… pic.twitter.com/6k2ppnMBev— Movember RSA (@MovemberRSA) November 21, 2015Suicide is the single biggest killer of guys under 45.

Late-season weather impacts corn and soybean growth and development

admin no comments

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Kyle Poling, Pioneer Field Agronomist, Ada, OhioPhysiological maturity of a soybean seed occurs when the seed has completely lost all green color and turns yellow. At this point grain moisture is still over 50%, but a harvestable moisture of near 13% can be reached in as little as two weeks under good drying conditions. In order to time harvest perfectly, it is necessary to monitor soybean drying very closely. At full maturity (R8), 95% of pods have reached their mature pod color. At the R8 growth stage, only five to 10 good drying days are needed before harvest. Begin checking grain moisture before all the leaves have dropped off all the plants as various stresses can cause soybeans to retain some leaves. It is not uncommon to see a few green leaves and stems on some plants after the pods are fully ripe and the soybeans are dry enough for harvest.Soybeans should be harvested the first time they reach 13% to 14% moisture. Moisture above 13% will incur a price discount, but moisture below 13% results in less weight at the elevator. What is the cost in lost yield from shrink when soybean moisture levels get down to 10% or less? Delivering soybeans at 12% moisture is a 1.14% yield loss; at 10% moisture there is a 3.3% yield reduction. If a field of soybeans yields 60 bushels per acre at 13% moisture, but if harvest moisture is at 10% moisture than the amount of bushels sold will be reduced by 2.3 bushels per acre from just the moisture shrink. Additionally, when harvest is delayed, a number of potential losses may occur, including increased tendency to shatter.Several factors affect the rate at which crops develop — photoperiod, heat, moisture, and fertility. Heat and photoperiod are the two primary factors influencing soybean maturity. Soybeans are considered short-day plants, meaning that physiological development is accelerated as daylength shortens. However, the rate of maturity is sped up by hotter temperatures and slowed down by cooler weather. Soybeans can compensate for stresses/shortcomings that occur during early to mid-reproduction provided ample sunlight, adequate temperatures, and soil moisture is available. Favorable late-season temperatures (not too hot) and rainfall during late stages of development (R5 to R6) can create larger seed weight by extending the seed fill duration.For corn, the reproductive stages last for approximately 65 days. Nearly half of this time during reproduction is spent in the dent stage (R5). At the beginning of R5, the kernel has accumulated about 45% of its total dry weight. Kernels will begin to “dent” as the soft dough at the top of the kernel begins to be convert into a solid starch. A visible “milk line” on the kernel marks the progression of the solid starch formation as it moves from the kernel cap towards the kernel tip.Stress during the R5 growth stage can reduce the time for additional starch accumulation thereby reducing yield potential. At the beginning of dent stage approximately 60% of yield potential has been reached. At growth stage R5.5 (50% kernel milk) nearly 90% of a corn plant’s yield is final. Visual signs of stress that are speeding crop maturation and negatively impacting yield include leaf firing, ears prematurely tipping over, or plant top die-back from anthracnose stalk rot. Physiological maturity, also known as black layer (R6), is complete when an abscission layer forms at the base of the kernel eliminating further dry matter accumulation.Kernel drying following black layer is entirely due to evaporative moisture loss. In standing corn, kernel moisture loss requires approximately 30 GDUs to remove 1% of grain moisture between 30 and 25% moisture. As corn continues to dry down, approximately 45 GDUs are needed to remove each moisture point between 25% to 20% moisture. When weather conditions are warm and dry, corn may lose 1% of grain moisture per day, but during periods of cool and/or wet weather moisture loss may be minimal. Hybrid characteristics such as husk leaf coverage, husk leaf senescence, ear angle, and kernel pericarp thickness can affect drydown. Corn that matures earlier will dry down faster due to more favorable drying conditions early in the harvest season. Later maturing corn has fewer warm days to aid in drying thus will dry down at a slower rate.last_img read more

In last week’s blog, I reported on my visit to Richard Renner’s office and Jesse Thompson’s house. This blog picks up the story with a report on my visit to three sites: an ongoing deep-energy retrofit project, a new home in Falmouth, and an unusual co-housing project.If you’re the type of reader who prefers pictures to words, you’re in luck: this week’s blog is loaded with photos.After I returned home from my Maine visit, I pondered the similarities and differences between building practices in New England and building practices in the Pacific Northwest, where I visited several job sites in March 2011.On both coasts, energy-efficient builders have embraced triple-glazed windows. But insulation practices are starkly different: in Washington state, all of the energy-conscious builders are using blown-in fiberglass insulation, while Maine builders are all choosing cellulose. I have no explanation whatsoever for this startling difference in insulation practices.Claudia King and Lindsey Tweed own an old post-and-beam house on a picturesque rural site in Falmouth, Maine. With diverse views in all directions — a large pasture, patches of woods, and a nearby pond — it’s easy to understand why someone would fall in love with the site and the existing house.A team of professionals — including architect Phil Kaplan, energy consultant Marc Rosenbaum, and builder Dan Kolbert — have been collaborating on a deep-energy retrofit of the home. When I visited the site on the morning of June 8, 2011, workers were moving soil in preparation for a new driveway, building a stone retaining wall, and installing siding and exterior trim.To improve the home’s energy performance, the siding and windows were removed and the walls were gutted.
