first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Although western bean cutworm (WBC) flight counts have been relatively stable compared to last year, several growers and extension educators have sent in pictures of western bean cutworm infestations and damage in corn. Obviously it is much too late to do much at this point, as the larvae are either still protected, or more likely, have dropped to the ground to overwinter.  However, the holes and damage that remain could lead to secondary infestations from mold and fungi, and some of these infestations may also be a source for mycotoxins, including fumonisins and deoxynivalenol, AKA vomitoxin.In some cases, damaged kernels will likely be colonized by opportunistic molds, meaning that the mold-causing fungi are just there because they gain easy access to the grain. However, in other cases, damaged ears may be colonized by fungi such as Fusarium, Gibberella and Aspergillus that produce harmful mycotoxins. Some molds that are associated with mycotoxins are easy to detect based on the color of the damaged areas. For instance reddish or pinkish molds are often cause by Gibberella zeae, a fungus know to be associated with several toxins, including vomitoxin. On the other hand, greenish molds may be caused by Aspergillus, which is known to be associated with aflatoxins, but not all green molds are caused by Aspergillus. The same can be said for whitish mold growth, some, but not all are caused by mycotoxin-producing fungi.So, since it is not always easy to tell which mold is associated with which fungus or which fungus produces mycotoxins, the safe thing to do is to avoid feeding moldy grain to livestock. Mycotoxins are harmful to animals – some animals are more sensitive to vomitoxin while others are more sensitive to fumonisins, but it is quite possible that multiple toxins are present in those damaged ears. Mycotoxin-producing fungi are also opportunistic. If you have damaged ears and moldy grain, get it tested for mycotoxins before feeding to livestock, and if you absolutely have to use moldy grain, make sure it does not make up more than the recommended limit for the toxin detected and the animal being fed.

The league is set to award Rondina with the MVP, second best Outside Hitter, and Best Scorer plums while Laure will take home the Rookie of the Year and the first Best Outside Hitter.This duo has pushed to Golden Tigresses the whole season and won at least one game against all the other teams in the league except for one—the Lady Eagles.Ateneo was the only team in the league to sweep a season series with the Golden Tigresses and that was thanks to no small part to the troika of Maddie Madayag, Kat Tolentino, and Bea De Leon.The Lady Eagles averaged 18 kill blocks in the two matches against UST during the eliminations and that was Ateneo’s main asset against UST’s firepower.Madayag alone had 17 of the total 36 kill blocks Ateneo had against UST.Not to be outdone, Ateneo also has its players who won a couple of individual awards in Madayag and Tolentino who were named the second Best Middle Blocker and Best Opposite Hitter.X-factorKat Tolentino.

As became very apparent this season, Herman was instrumental in turning Ohio State into an offensive juggernaut despite all kinds of injury issues at quarterback last season. I don’t know that anyone realistically thought Herman would elevate Houston to this level in just one year, though. At 12-1, with an AAC title under their belt, the Cougars are off to the Peach Bowl for a New Year’s Eve showdown with ACC powerhouse Florida State.

first_imgImagine having to traverse through a riverbed to get to and from your community on a daily basis, or travel for miles using the alternative route when it becomes impassable.That was the reality for hundreds of residents in several communities in North East St. Catherine, when the Dover Castle main road was left impassable following the collapse of a bridge during Tropical Storm Nicole in 2010.The collapsed bridge meant that motorists had to drive through an orange grove to get to the communities of Redwood and Guys Hill.With the Government’s recent construction of a $23.3 million Bailey bridge, the residents’ lives have been significantly changed and they now have easier access to their homes.The single lane bridge, which was officially opened last week, replaces the structure that collapsed two years ago. It serves the communities of Dover Castle, Redwood, Jubilee Town, Golden Grove, Guys Hill and adjoining areas.Speaking to JIS News, resident Devon Morris, says he is extremely grateful. “What dem do today was nice and joyful. Dem see to it that we get a bridge so everything will be alright, we can drive through comfortable,” he says.He adds that without the bridge, “we have a hard time with people coming into the district”.Joined by several other beneficiaries, Mr. Morris thanked the Government and National Works Agency (NWA), for the new bridge.Speaking to JIS News during the official opening, Minister of State in the Ministry of Transport, Works and Housing, Hon. Richard Azan, said the project, which got underway in January this year, was completed within schedule and budget.Works included the construction of gabion baskets; bridge abutments; a rubble retaining wall and approach roads.The State Minister urged operators of heavy duty vehicles to use alternative routes at John’s Pen and Berkshire Hall, as the structure has a carrying capacity of only 50 tonnes.Meanwhile, NWA Communications Manager, Stephen Shaw, says warning signs will be erected shortly to advise motorists of the limited carrying capacity.“Being a 50-tonne structure, we don’t expect to see a trailer going across this bridge because it is not built to accommodate those types of units,” he tells JIS News.Mr. Shaw is urging residents to assist in keeping the structure in place and to ensure that it is not compromised by misuse. “What we would also be appealing to residents to do, is assist us in keeping this very vital piece of infrastructure in place. They are the ones who have been suffering since Tropical Storm Nicole in 2010, when they had to be walking in the river bed, climbing out and then finding their way beyond this point. So they have an interest in ensuring that the bridge stays in place and is not compromised in any way by misuse,” he says.Member of Parliament for North East St. Catherine, Gregory Mair, commended the Government for undertaking the project. “This is a process that was initiated all the way back from 2010 and the present Government made it their business to see it come to its completion. I am very happy for the people in the surrounding areas; finally we got the bridge done. So I think it’s a relief and I am extremely appreciative for the construction of this bridge,” he said.Other works under the project included: river training works 50 metres upstream and 50 metres downstream; realignment of the roadway; and the raising and re-paving of the roadway with asphaltic concrete.The contractor for the project was Aegisco Limited.By Chris Patterson, JIS Reporterlast_img read more

first_imgHALIFAX – Homesick Haligonians can now tune into around-the-clock footage of Halifax’s official food: the donair.The “Donair Cam” is a 24-hour live stream of a seasoned log of meat spinning on a rotating spit.Ralf Pickart, owner of the website Nova Scotia Webcams, said he hopes the Donair Cam will help Maritimers who live away reconnect with their home.“Nova Scotians who are away out west and all over, when they come back, the first thing they want is a donair because it can’t be replicated anywhere,” he said.“People are always homesick, missing family and friends — and donairs are a part of that.”Pickart said he came up with the idea while brainstorming for a new live webcam.He then approached restaurant King Of Donair, a Halifax staple synonymous with the east coast delicacy.Restaurant owner Nicholas Nahas said he jumped at the opportunity to prompt cravings for the greasy treat 24 hours a day.King of Donair has laid claim to creating the original donair, which features shaved spicy meat, tomato, onion, and donair sauce wrapped in a pita.In 2015, the dish was named the official food of Halifax.Social media was abuzz after Nova Scotia Webcams debuted the Donair Cam, with many drooling over the spinning meat log.Twitter user Rachel Harding tweeted: “I have two screens at my desk but usually only ever use one. Not anymore. #DonairCam.”On Facebook, a user named Sue Mollins-Hamilton wrote: “This makes me very happy… and homesick.”Pickart said he also hopes to raise awareness about Nova Scotia Webcams, an independent website that offers more than 75 livestreams around the province.“Depending on how it catches on, (Donair Cam) can last forever,” Pickart said. “Certainly, I would say it’s there to entertain people and at some point, they will get hungry and hopefully get a donair.”On the web: https://donaircam.com/(Global News, The Canadian Press)last_img read more

first_imgCALGARY – Western Canadian farmers are using proceeds from a good harvest last year to buy more new agricultural equipment after years of settling for used as prices of U.S.-made machinery rose due to the stronger American dollar.Both Cervus Equipment Corp. and Rocky Mountain Dealerships Inc. are reporting increased earnings thanks to higher profit margins and manufacturers’ incentive payments on sales of new equipment in 2017 versus 2016.Cervus CEO Graham Drake says the company expects strong sales of new equipment to continue in 2018 after sales leaped ahead by 20 per cent last year, driven by good harvests and “windows” of favourable currency exchange rates.He cited the improved outlook in announcing an increase in the quarterly dividend from seven to 10 cents per share.CEO Garrett Ganden says Rocky Mountain Dealerships is also banking on Canadian farmer optimism this year, noting continuing good prices on solid crop production and a harvest last fall that wasn’t hampered by late-season wet conditions as it was in 2016.Cervus reported revenue from new equipment sales rose 20 per cent to $447 million in 2017, while Rocky Mountain noted a 5.7 per cent increase to $436 million.Both companies are based in Calgary.Rocky Mountain, which sells Case IH and New Holland equipment, says it is Canada’s largest agriculture equipment dealer with 35 dealerships across the Prairies.Cervus, which sells John Deere machinery, has interests in 35 dealerships, 20 in Western Canada, nine in New Zealand and six in Australia.last_img read more
