Storm Damage Estimates Still Climbing

first_img SHARE Storm Damage Estimates Still Climbing Facebook Twitter Crop damage estimates from last week’s derecho storm are still climbing. The violent thunderstorms traveled over 700 miles from Nebraska to Indiana.The storm was so powerful, as of last Thursday, more than 300,000 people hadn’t had power restored in northern Illinois and Iowa, which was the hardest-hit state.The Washington Post says the 70 mile-per-hour winds hit more than 10 million acres of corn and soybeans in Iowa, adding more difficulty to an already challenging year for farmers. Up to 43 percent of the state’s corn and soybean crop suffered some level of damage from the storms, a big blow to the $10 billion agriculture industry that anchors Iowa’s economy.The damage was so extensive that it was even visible on weather satellites that were used to track the storm. Meteorologist Steven Bowen said on Twitter that “This has all the makings of a billion-dollar impact on agriculture in Iowa and Illinois. With that said, it will take some time for farmers to determine how much of the downed crops are salvageable for harvest.” Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Storm Damage Estimates Still Climbing By NAFB News Service – Aug 16, 2020 SHARE Previous articleFarm Bureau and Other Groups Welcome CFAP Deadline ExtensionNext articleCommentary: Big Tech Replaces Big Ag as Public Enemy No. 1 NAFB News Servicelast_img read more

Justice of the Supreme Court, he alleged close connections of the judge with the ruling BJP Government based on an article published in ‘The Wire’ titled ‘Family Ties of Former DGP, SC Judge Cast Conflict of Interest Shadow on Vikas Dubey Probe’ “…two immediate/close relatives of Justice (Retd.) B.S.Chauhan viz. his brother and ‘samadhi’ being legislators with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) which runs the government in Uttar Pradesh” – Upadhyay’s plea stated.As regards Shri KL Gupta, the petition avers that he is related with the IG of Kanpur Zone, Shri Mohit Agarwal, where the alleged encounter of Vikas Dubey took place. “Shri K.L. Gupta is related with IG, Kanpur Zone, Shri Mohit Agarwal, where the alleged encounter of Vikas Dubey took place and who is alleged to be involved in fake encounters and thus, is bound to come under the scanner of enquiry/probe”In light of this, the plea contends that “aforesaid two members of Judicial Commissions are disqualified from being part of the commission on account of conflict of interest and bias or likelihood of bias on their part”.The plea goes on to state that the conduct of the State and its functionaries of concealing “vital material facts which go to the very root of the matter” need to be viewed seriously by the Top Court.This, the plea contends makes it discernible that the aforesaid two members are in “active collusion and connivance with the State administration” since BJP is the ruling party in UP and the Chief Minister is alleged to be involved in fake encounters of six accused and “appears to have provided all support to UP Government in contesting the issue pertaining to an independent inquiry into Dubey’s killing.Upadhyay states that not only the aforesaid two members but Shri Shashikant Agrawal & Ravinder Gaur must also be removed from the commission as the “State administration cannot be trusted anymore” and the Judicial Commission/SIT needs to be wholly reconstituted afresh by the Court.”Since the aforesaid members on account of their conflict of interest and being likely to be biased, are disqualified from being members of the Judicial Commission and that being the case, it is not only desirable but also necessary in the interest of the justice, good conscious, equity and fair play that they are removed from the Judicial Commission/SIT and substituted with persons suggested/named by the Petitioner”The list suggested by Upadhyay includes former Chief Justices of India TS Thakur and RM Lodha, and former Justices Santosh Hegde, Anil R. Dave, Kurian Joseph, Fakkir Mohamed Ibrahim Kalifulla, MY Eqbal, AK Patnaik, Vikramjit Sen, KS Panicker Radhakrishnan, and HL Gokhale.The plea also delves into the issue of discerning what constitutes bias by stating that the “likelihood of bias” but be paid heed to.”Appointments of aforesaid persons/members in Judicial Commission/SIT, are against the basic tenets of Articles 14 and 21 of the Constitution of India and principle of natural justice, which is implicit in Articles 14 and 21 of the Constitution of India and thus, ultimately, violation of fundamental rights of the people of the country to have fair and impartial investigation/trial”Upadhyay had earlier filed an application seeking removal of K L Gupta from the Commission alleging that he had issued press statements supporting the police version of the encounter and was therefore biased. On July 28, the SC dismissed that plea, observing that after considering Gupta’s statements in their entirety, no right minded person would think that he was biased.It was on July 22 that the SC constituted the committee and appointed former SC judge Justice B S Chauhan to lead it, acting on a writ petition field by Upadhyay..The names of the committee members were proposed by the Uttar Pradesh government. Justice Sashi Kant Agarwal, a former judge of the Allahabad High Court, is the third member of the commission, apart from Justice B S Chauhan and K L Gupta.Click Here To Download ApplicationSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

The importance of wind blown snow redistribution to snow accumulation on and mass balance of Bellingshausen Sea ice

first_imgSnow distribution is a dominating factor in sea-ice mass balance in the Bellingshausen Sea,Antarctica, through its roles in insulating the ice and contributing to snow-ice production. The wind haslong been qualitatively recognized to influence the distribution of snow accumulation on sea ice, but therelative importance of drifting and blowing snow has not been quantified over Antarctic sea ice prior tothis study. The presence and magnitude of drifting snow were monitored continuously along with windspeeds at two sites on an ice floe in the Bellingshausen Sea during the October 2007 Sea Ice MassBalance in the Antarctic (SIMBA) experiment. Contemporaneous precipitation measurements collectedon board the RVIB Nathaniel B. Palmer and accumulation measurements by automated ice massbalancebuoys (IMBs) allow us to document the proportion of snowfall that accumulated on level icesurfaces in the presence of high winds and blowing-snow conditions. Accumulation on the sea iceduring the experiment averaged 0.03mw.e. of precipitation on the ice floe.Accumulation changes on the ice floe were clearly associated with drifting snow and high winds.Drifting-snow transport during the SIMBA experiment was supply-limited. Using these results to informa preliminary study using a blowing-snow model, we show that over the entire Southern Oceanapproximately half of the precipitation over sea ice could be lost to leads.last_img read more

Bills draft Iowa DE AJ Epenesa, Utah RB Zack Moss

first_img Associated Press Tags: Zack Moss April 25, 2020 /Sports News – Local Bills draft Iowa DE AJ Epenesa, Utah RB Zack Moss FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailBUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — A.J. Epenesa might not know much about Buffalo yet, though the Iowa defensive end is sure familiar with Bills quarterback Josh Allen.Drafted by the Bills with the 54th pick on Friday, Epenesa began to laugh when reminded how his first college career sack came against Allen three years ago when Wyoming opened its season at Iowa in a 24-3 win by the Hawkeyes.“Yeah, it’s not going to be an awkward thing,” Epenesa said, referring to his eventual re-introduction with the Bills third-year starter. “He’s a great guy from what I hard, and he’s a great quarterback … So, I’m really exited to be on the same team as him.”A day after sitting out the first round of the NFL draft, the Bills addressed their defensive pass-rush and offensive rushing needs with their second- and third-round picks.Listed at 6-foot-5 and 275 pounds, Epenesa led the Big Ten with 10 1/2 sacks as a junior last season. The Bills then used the 86th pick to chose Utah running back Zack Moss, who set numerous career school records and led the Pac-12 with 15 touchdowns and 1,416 yards rushing to earn the conference player of the year honors.Epenesa’s selection was Buffalo’s first of the draft after the Bills traded four picks, including their first-rounder (22nd overall), to acquire receiver Stefon Diggs from Minnesota last month.Having addressed many of Buffalo’s immediate needs in free agency and with Diggs’ addition, general manager Brandon Beane balanced his approach to the draft between selecting the best player available with an eye on need.Epenesa being available at No. 54 made Beane’s decision an easy one after the player was initially projected to be a late first-round or early second-round pick.“I don’t know exactly why he fell. I assume he fell because of his 40 time and some people knocked him a little bit on that,” Beane said, referring to Epenesa being timed a a relatively slow 5.04 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the NFL’s scouting combine. “But you know how I don’t care about that stuff. I’m looking for football players. And he’s a damn good football player.”Upgrading the pass rush was considered a partial need for Buffalo, given that returning starters Jerry Hughes and Trent Murphy will both be 30 or older before the end of this year.Epenesa was a three-year starter at Iowa who had 26 1/2 sacks and forced nine fumbles in 37 career games. He joins a Bills defense that lost backup defensive end Shaq Lawson in free agency last month. The Bills did address Lawson’s departure by signing Mario Addison in free agency.As for Moss, Beane said he had a few antsy moments, and even considered trading up as many as seven spots to take the running back before it became evident he would be available.At 5-foot-9 and 205 pounds, Moss has the potential to play a complementary role to Devin Singletary, who supplanted LeSean McCoy and Frank Gore to become the Bills starter last season.Moss has NFL ties, with his cousins being former receivers Santana and Sinorice Moss. He initially elected to follow in their footsteps by committing to play college at Miami before choosing Utah.Barring trades, Buffalo had five picks remaining over the final four rounds Saturday, with their next coming at No. 128. With many of Buffalo’s positions set, Beane will be targeting players with versatility and having the potential to fill special team roles.Expectations are on the rise in Buffalo. A majority of the roster returns intact from a team coming off a 10-6 finish that qualified the Bills for the playoffs for the second time in three years.The continuity has led to a belief of the Bills being in a prime position to challenge the New England Patriots for the AFC East title this season. The Patriots, who have won 11 straight division titles and 17 of the past 19, are suddenly in flux with quarterback Tom Brady leaving for Tampa Bay.Beane certainly appears to be taking an all-in approach, given his bold move to acquire Diggs and address what he considered the team’s biggest offseason priority. Diggs provides the Allen-led offense a trio of proven receivers, rounded out by John Brown and Cole Beasley. Written bylast_img read more

Colleges duplicate on ball theme

first_imgAlice in Wonderland will be the focus of not one but two college balls this summer as both Exeter and Pembroke Colleges have come up with strikingly similar themes.Exeter College’s “A Night in Alice in Wonderland” promises a “journey of mystique and intrigue” and is sounding remarkably similar to Pembroke’s “Through the Looking Glass,” which invites ball-goers to “trace Alice’s footsteps through the fantasy realm of Wonderland.”Both Balls list smoking with the Giant Caterpillar, drinking with the Mad Hatter and a silent disco as among the attractions.Each college’s Ball President was keen to emphasise the differences between the two.“Our Ball is £30 cheaper,” said Exeter Ball President Emily Ball. “We’ve got dodgems, they don’t. We have a jazz band, they don’t. We’ve got a hog roast, donuts, amazing DJs. And we’re almost half sold out already.”She also claimed that Exeter was not responsible for the mix-up. “It’s actually their fault. We published the theme on our website in June, so they should have known.”James Finch, the President of Pembroke’s Ball, responded by suggesting that his college got there first. “We submitted the theme before they did. They claim to have put a message on their website, in a format that was not overly clear, but in the end we decided just to go ahead and compete on a slightly different level.”“Their’s is a bit more low budget,” he continued. “We’re trying to focus more on the entertainment side of things, more on the quantity and quality of food and drink. On our scale and budget, the theme is going to be all out.”But he was keen to emphasise that “there was no suggestion that either of us had copied it off each other.”Other students identified further differences. David Thomas, a first year PPEist at Exeter, said that his college’s ball was “going to be better because it’s cheaper,” and pointed out that the two balls were not based on exactly the same story. “They’re different novels,” he said, “and we’re going for completely different audiences.”“It’s not about the theme, it’s about the fact that ours is a more accessible ball if you want to go to one outside of your own college. We’re the only £50 ball in Oxford.”But Etiene Ekpo-Utip, a Pembroke student, said that he was “kind of annoyed” by the theme clash. “It’s going to take the focus off Pembroke. We’re known as more of a party college than Exeter, and it’s a bit unnecessary to be honest.”Nevertheless, he denied there was any anxiety, “at Pembroke we’re not worried because we’ve got way more attractions than Exeter.”He also expressed his optimism for the event, “we’re just bloody excited about it.”last_img read more
