first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Today, the American Tree Farm System (ATFS) announced the 2018 National Outstanding Tree Farmer of the Year. This year’s honorees are Randy and Koral Clum of east central Ohio. The Clums have been sustainably managing Hepatica Falls Tree Farm, their 152-acre certified forestland in southwestern Harrison County, since they purchased the property in 1993.While Randy and Koral Clum had spent much of their careers in forestry, they hadn’t managed their own property until they acquired their tree farm. Since then, they’ve been dedicated to creating a working forest that produces high-quality timber while managing for water, wildlife and recreation, as well as using their woodland to educate others about the benefits of the forest and good management principles.“It’s an amazing honor and I feel blessed to have worked with all the people that we’ve worked with. We are honored to be recognized in this way,” Koral Clum said.Randy Clum added, “What’s been important to us about the American Tree Farm System is the education component. It’s a way to meet other tree farmers, to expand their knowledge, to expose them to bigger and better things, and to what other tree farmers have been doing for the last few decades. It’s good principles. It’s good standards. It’s what tree farming’s all about, clean air, clean water, timber, recreation, aesthetics all rolled into one package.”Randy and Koral Clum are frequent speakers on forest management during seminars, field days, and other educational workshops. The couple also has served on numerous advisory boards and held officer positions for organizations such as Ohio Society of American Foresters, Ohio Tree Farm Committee, Ohio Farm Bureau, and the East Central Ohio Forestry Association. Sharing their love of forestry has grown over the years, and recently Randy has adopted social media to engage and educate others who want to know more about family forest ownership and best management practices.“The Clums are model landowners who have done great work on their land, for sustainable wood, clean water, improved wildlife habitat, and recreation,” said Tom Martin, President and CEO of the American Forest Foundation, the non-profit conservation group that manages the American Tree Farm System. “Randy and Koral have been terrific stewards of their land and have also taken that a step further to reach out to their neighbors and their community to all work together to make our forests healthier. This type of sharing and education is a key value of ATFS.”The Clums were nominated for the award by Jeremy Scherf, Service Forester for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Forestry and 2016 National Tree Farm Inspector of the Year.“Hepatica Falls Tree Farm is one of the best managed properties around. So, when you think of forestry in Ohio, it’s hard not to think of Randy and Koral Clum. While they are foresters by profession, they are generous educators at heart,” Scherf said. “The Clums volunteer a lot of their time to educate others about forestry, both locally and statewide. The countless hours they spend donating their time to help teach others about our forests is remarkable.”Managing their land for timber sales, the Clums have adhered to the high standards of ATFS certification. This requires tree selection with consideration for forest health, spacing, risk, markets, aesthetics, wildlife, and long-term productivity. These best management practices and their love of the land have ensured erosion control near Stillwater Creek and they have protected and improved habitat for many wildlife species, including bobcat, coyote, river otter, deer, spring peepers, wild turkey, ruffed grouse, wood duck, turkey vulture, red-tailed hawk, pileated woodpecker, woodcock, barred owl, kingfisher, wren, towhee, scarlet tanager, goldfinch, hummingbird, and Louisiana water thrush.“Some people feel that cutting trees is hard on the wildlife, but in this part of Ohio, the missing component for a lot of wildlife is the early successional forest, the young trees,” Koral said. “We also leave cavity trees for birds, squirrels and other species.”Each year, ATFS recognizes four Regional Outstanding Tree Farmers out of the 73,000 Tree Farmers nationwide. This year, ATFS is proud to also recognize the regional awardees: Russell Black from Maine; Jon and Carol Gould from Florida; and Dan Kingsbury from Washington, along with the Clums.“Our past timber sales have been a blessing from the standpoint of creating more diversity as far as food and habitat. It has introduced so much diversity with edge effect and young successional stage for so many different species of not only animals, but also bird species, insects—pollinators. It just worked out better than we ever imagined,” Randy said.Individuals considered for the award must demonstrate exceptional efforts to preserve and enhance their woodlands, which conserves and enhances clean water and air, wildlife habitat, recreational activities, and the wood for homes and paper products that come from their land, all of which are exemplified on the ATFS sign.To learn more about the 2018 Outstanding Tree Farmers of the Year, visit: https://www.forestfoundation.org/2018-outstanding-tree-farmers .last_img read more

Here is a list of considerations while creating interactive web solutions with IoT integration.Speed MeasurabilityThe traditional process of request analysis by web servers is replaced with the cloud data transmission process. It proves to be more productive and faster.Privacy and SecurityIoT connected devices are prone to be hacked. Thus to maintain the security, web developers need to adopt a more strict design pattern for the connected devices. This, after all, will ensure the security feature of the web app.Power ManagementThe programs running in the back end tend to drain a lot of battery which may result in less communication. So it is essential for the web developers to design a layout that will minimize power usage.  There has to be a power management plan in place before going ahead with web development. Professional SEO services are capable of managing both things. Dynamic UIThe involvement of IoT in UI is nothing new but the role and responsibility of the web app developer are going to rise with the development trends. The developers will have to rethink their approach towards development. They have to follow practices keeping in mind the new IoT- based designs.Architecting the Future of Web developmentThere are many impactful factors of IoT on web development. It is difficult to judge how much more will IoT impact this arena of technology. But it looks like the combination of  IoT and web development is far more convincing in the web development and will reap benefits to the end users.

The concept of IoT began years ago; we just didn’t use the term IoT. Kevin Ashton is credited with being the first to coin the phrase Internet of Things (IoT) in 1999.The Internet Of Things (IoT) is any device having the ability to transmit and collect data over the internet without any human interaction. ATM machines are one of the best examples — coming out in 1969 — they can give you a picture of the actual meaning. The ATM device is connected to the Internet 24/7 and displays personalized information on the screen which is collected from the internet. Connected technology rise (IoT) is bringing waves at Intel, Microsoft, and SAP but also at some unexpected places like kitchens, playing ground, gardens and more. IoT development services are now so popular that soon it will be as ubiquitous as smartphones.When we try to set up a connection between the Internet Of Things (IoT) and Web development, we wonder, what’s the bottom-line of the link?The answer is, there is a connection and will always be a connection. Because web development includes the two central part: Front end development and Back-end development which requires a seamless connection for data transfer. The complex IoT networks raise the bar and set new challenges every day for the web developers. Read further to know how these IoT implementations will impact web development. Ever wondered on what does the internet networks that respond to the users rely on?  The answer is, they rely on web servers. The collected data is stored on the cloud, and the interaction takes place with the help of the user interface. Virtual assistants like Amazon’s Echo, Alexa can display the web content apart from smart TVs, laptops, and wearables. How is IoT affecting the landscape of Web development?Business enterprises want to give their customers a more personalized and customized service such as IoT services in the USA. The ultimate IoT aim is to satisfy a customer’s and make their enterprises successful.            The IoT aim is to satisfy customer’s and make their enterprises successful.Due to IoT evolvement, enterprises can use a combination of wireless technologies and sensors to serve the customers better.

first_imgThere are several video editing techniques every professional needs to know. Let’s take a look at two of them: the J-cut and L-cut.If you’re in the business of video editing (or would like to be), then two techniques you absolutely must know are the J-cut and the L-cut. Editors use these techniques to allow audiences to see the context of the dialogue rather than just the dialogue itself.Let’s look at the best ways to incorporate J-cuts and L-cuts into your next production. To do this, we’ll look at some of the very best uses of these techniques in film history.A History of J & L-CutsEven before the days of cinema, artists developed stories through a combination of images. This early form of storytelling and editing can be seen on the walls of the pyramids or in the triptych paintings of the Middle Ages. With the 20th century development of the film camera and the subsequent addition of sound to filmmaking, the editing techniques of the J-cut and L-cut appeared.Image: Scene from The Jazz Singer via Warner Bros. The image above is from 1927’s The Jazz Singer. Heralded as the first “talkie,” the film introduced audiences to fully synced sound and imagery. Another thing it introduced to audiences: the first use of the L-cut. While we see and hear actor Al Jolson talking to his bandmates, the camera cuts to audience members taking their seats. In the video below (via WarnerBrosOnline), we can see one of the very first L-cuts play out in real time. What makes a L-cut or J-cut work is the combination of dialogue and imagery. For an L-cut, the dialogue continues as the camera cuts to another image. For a J-cut, the dialogue plays while we see contextual images, but then cuts to the source of the dialogue.Why Use a J-Cut or L-Cut?Using a J-cut or an L-cut is all about keeping the flow of the edit moving without becoming boring. If a J-cut or L-cut is performed properly, then the audience will never notice it taking place. This same theory is really true for any editing technique.Image: an example of an L-cut Think about the films we watch and the dialogue sequences within them. During these sequences, the editor isn’t constantly cutting back and forth to each character as they talk. Doing this would be very distracting. Instead, an L-cut is used.This technique sees Character A speaking, but then the scene cuts to Character B as Character A continues their dialogue. By doing this, the editor is allowing viewers to hear the dialogue while also seeing the reaction of Character B, giving the audience a better overall understanding of the scene.Image: an example of a J-cut The J-cut is the opposite of the L-cut. With this technique, the viewer hears the dialogue of Character A — but only sees Character B on screen. From this shot of Character B (which provides emotional information and context for the scene), the editor cuts back to Character A. Where Else Can You Use a J-Cut or L-Cut?As discussed above, the best time to use either technique is during a scene with dialogue, but these techniques can also come in handy during any scene with connecting action to a specific sound.In the video above from Movieclips Coming Soon, we see how sound effects were used in conjunction with visuals to pull off a very compact but vital J-cut in Raiders of the Lost Ark. After Indy swaps the bag of sand for the idol, he begins to walk away. Sounds begin to grow off camera, causing Indy to look back. The camera then cuts to the shot of the idol room breaking and falling apart, giving us context for the sound.Again, the entire point of using these techniques is to progress the story forward in a compelling way. We’ll leave you with one of the most iconic J-cuts/L-cuts of all time. Director Stanley Kubrick uses both techniques to perfection in 2001: A Space Odyssey. HAL 9000 can only convey a voice with no emotional queues. Because of this, Kubrick utilizes the character of Dave to give us the emotion of the scene. This plays out (as seen in the clip below via Jim Nielson) as the film cuts back and forth between Dave deactivating HAL and the AI urging Dave to stop.What are your favorite uses of J-cuts and L-cuts? Please share them in the comments below!last_img read more

first_imgEditor’s note: This is the fifth in a 15-part series in which we preview college football’s top teams. We’ll be counting down from 15 to one, with the final team, released on Sept. 3 – the day college football starts – serving as our national title pick. 11. Clemson TigersThe Clemson Tigers are a trendy pick to win the ACC this year, despite the fact that Florida State is the three-time defending conference champion. Clemson has won at least 10 games in each of the past four seasons, and many believe that if star quarterback Deshaun Watson can stay healthy all year, the Tigers will have a legitimate shot at taking the next step and competing for a national championship. The program finished on a high note in 2014, blowing out Oklahoma, 40-6, in the Russell Athletic Bowl. Can they keep it rolling into 2015?Clemson kicked off practice just a few days ago. The school has been releasing footage all week.#PAWDrill is back! #Clemson pic.twitter.com/ObxgSOlwt1— Clemson Football (@ClemsonFB) August 10, 2015Not everyone thinks the Tigers have what it takes to win it all, though.Where They’re At In The RankingsUSA TODAY Coaches’ Poll – No. 12ESPN FPI – No. 19Las Vegas odds – No. 20The Schedule Clemson Russell Athletic Bowl RingsTwitter/ClemsonSept. 5 – vs. WoffordSept. 12 – vs. Appalachian StateSept. 17 – at LouisvilleOct. 3 – vs. No. 11 Notre DameOct. 10 – vs. No. 17 Georgia TechOct. 17 – vs. Boston CollegeOct. 24 – at Miami (FL)Oct. 31 – at NC StateNov. 7 – vs. No. 8 Florida StateNov. 14 – at SyracuseNov. 21 – vs. Wake ForestNov. 28 – at South Carolina Key GamesOct. 3 vs. Notre DameClemson gets its first real test at Louisville on a Thursday night in September, but there’s no doubt that Tigers fans have had Notre Dame circled on their 2015 schedule for years. The Irish and Tigers are both considered national title hopefuls, and assuming both have unblemished records heading into the contest, the winner is going to have a leg up for the College Football Playoff rankings. Notre Dame’s defense struggled down the stretch last year, and assuming Watson is still on the field for the Tigers, they’ll have a decent shot at knocking off the historic program. It’ll also be interesting to see how new Fighting Irish starter Malik Zaire deals with Clemson’s likely-formidable secondary. Nov. 7 vs. Florida StateFor as successful as Clemson has been over the past three years, the Tigers still haven’t been able to crack Florida State. In 2015, former Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston (who went No. 1 overall to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers) is gone, and the Seminoles will (most likely) rely on Notre Dame transfer Everett Golson to lead the charge. That being said, Clemson lost at home last year, 23-17, with FSU sporting backup Sean Maguire. If Clemson wants to get serious about finding itself in the College Football Playoff, they’ll have to take care of the Seminoles to get there.Nov. 28 at South CarolinaYes, Clemson vs. South Carolina is still just a non-conference game. But even if both schools were 0-11 heading into it, it would still be the most important contest on the schedule. The in-state rivalry between the two, now dubbed The Palmetto Bowl, is one of the best in the sport. The war of words between Dabo Swinney and Steve Spurrier isn’t too bad, either.Key PlayersDeshaun Watson, sophomore quarterbackWatson had a very bizarre freshman season. Back in April, he broke his collarbone. He started the season as the backup to Cole Stoudt, and after performing very well against Florida State in relief, he was named the team’s starter. A few weeks later, he broke his finger against Louisville and was out of action until mid-November. In returning against Georgia Tech, he tore his ACL. After sitting out against Georgia State, he returned for the team’s rivalry game with South Carolina, and led the Tigers to victory, despite the injury. He then shut it down, opting to have surgery instead of playing against Oklahoma. Got all that?When Watson was on the field, Clemson was a much more efficient team. He threw for 1,466 yards, 14 touchdowns and two interceptions in limited work. He also rushed for 200 yards on 63 attempts. He’s a player single-handedly capable of winning Clemson the conference title. But can he stay healthy?I knew my time was coming, I just had to wait for it. So every night I prayed for opportunities like this. Time to go LIVE it! #WishMeWell— Deshaun Watson (@ShaunWatson4) August 4, 2015Shaq Lawson, junior defensive endClemson boasted one of the country’s top defenses in 2014, but ahead of the 2015 campaign, the Tigers will have to replace eight starters. Lawson, a 6-foot-3, 275-pound stud defensive end, should help to ease that burden. He’s one of the best at his position in the ACC. If the Tigers are going to hang their hat on defense again this year, he’ll have to be a menace.Lawson was a Freshman All-American in 2013, and last year, he recorded 44 tackles, including 11 for loss. If he’s able to continue improving, he’ll be one of the most feared players in the country.It’s time to seperate the good from the great. Until January social media… It’s time to go to work boys.— Shaq Lawson (@Shaq_Lawson90) August 4, 2015Wayne Gallman, sophomore running backDespite winning 10 games in 2014, Clemson struggled running the football. In fact, the Tigers finished 81st in rushing offense, averaging just 3.5 yards per attempt. Much of that was because Cole Stoudt, who isn’t an overly athletic signal-caller, was on the field a good portion of the year. But the team’s running backs didn’t put up staggering numbers either. The longest run from scrimmage was only 34 yards – by Wayne Gallman. Gallman, who led the team in both carries (161) and yards (769) last season, will need to improve in his sophomore year. Clemson will need to have a strong running game to compete this year – especially if Watson ever catches the injury bug again.twitter see yall in January. #doakseason pic.twitter.com/6iFngorvX8— Wayne Gallman II (@Wanye_Kanye) August 4, 2015 Why They Can Win The National TitleClemson returns just 11 starters from last year’s team, so it’s possible that the Tigers are a year or two away from competing for a national championship. The squad may not have the defense it had a year ago, given the departures of Vic Beasley, Stephone Anthony and Tony Steward, but head coach Dabo Swinney does seem to have confidence in this year’s unit. If he’s right, Clemson will be formidable.The other major factor, obviously, is Watson’s health. If he can stay on the field, Clemson will be very difficult to stop. But the second he’s sidelined, the Tigers will either be relying on junior Nick Schuessler, who has attempted 10 passes in his career, or a true freshman with zero experience. Every time Watson goes down, Tigers fans will collectively be holding their breath.Regardless, Clemson’s program seems to be in a good place. If everything falls right in 2015, the Tigers could have a special year.Yesterday: No. 12 LSU; up tomorrow: No. 10 Florida Statelast_img read more

first_imgActivities under the Land Administration and Management Programme (LAMP) have been boosted, with the provision of motor vehicles and equipment by the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA). The donation, inclusive of three utility vehicles and several pieces of land surveying and mapping equipment, with accompanying computers and software, form part of allocations under the Cadastral Mapping and Land Registration in Jamaica Project. Minister of Water, Land, Environment and Climate Change, Hon. Robert Pickersgill, formally accepted the vehicles and equipment from Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Jamaica, His Excellency Kimo Lim, during the project’s launch on Friday (March 8), at the St. Mary Parish Church hall in Port Maria. Mr. Pickersgill, who represented Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller, who was in Venezuela for the state funeral of late President, Hugo Chavez, welcomed the donation. “The introduction of advanced land surveying technologies will improve LAMP’s capacity to deliver land titles, and we will also see the further mobilisation of legal and land surveying teams in the targeted parishes. Needless to say, our country will benefit significantly from the execution of this project,” Mr. Pickersgill stated. In his brief remarks, Ambassador Lim described the project as a “good example” of the partnership between both countries, which spans 50 years. He expressed the hope that Jamaica and Korea will seek to further strengthen their partnership through collaborations on matters of mutual interest     LAMP’s Project Director, Lisa Campbell, in expressing gratitude, stated that the donation will “enable us to move forward with our mandate, which is simply land titling.” The Cadastral Mapping and Land Registration project , for which an agreement was signed by the Ministry and KOICA last week, is an addendum to the contract for LAMP’s second phase, and will facilitate expansion of the land titling process into St. Ann, St. Mary, and Portland.   Additional benefits include the provision of skills training in the areas of land surveying, cadastral mapping, and geo informatics for LAMP’s officers.    Some 1,000 parcels of land in the targeted parishes, currently being occupied informally, are being targeted for the delivery of titles to the property holders. Korea Cadastral Survey Corporation, which has been assisting with the implementation of LAMP’s second phase, will, over the next two years, invest over US$2 million in the project, with the option to spend a further US$26 million over 10 years, thereafter. LAMP, which started in 2000, aims to formalise the holdings of land holders currently without titles for their properties, by assisting them to secure these documents. The initiative, which commenced as a pilot in St. Catherine, has since been extended to include all parishes, except Kingston and St. Andrew, and Portmore and its environs. KOICA is the agency of Korea’s Foreign Affairs and Trade Ministry responsible for implementing grant aid and technical cooperation programmes internationally.last_img read more
