2019 so far – Part Two

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Bingo Regions: Europe US Central and Eastern Europe Germany 20th June 2019 | By contenteditor In the second part of iGaming Business’ rundown of the year to date’s most popular news stories, we see that viewers were particularly interested in US developments, while regulatory progress in Germany also attracted a lot of hits.The top ten is based on the most read stories on iGamingBusiness.com. Part one is available to read here.5. Apple will only allow native iOS gambling apps in App Store We will not see the effects of this story until later this year, but it promises to have a major impact on the gambling industry, both in the US and Europe. Apple has decided that it only accept apps developed specifically for its operating system in the App Store, setting developers a deadline of September 3 to comply.This means that gambling apps, in which an HTML5 website is hosted in a native iOS ‘wrapper’ will disappear from the App Store. The problem here is that the majority of apps are built in this way, as they are quicker and cheaper to produce.Operators now face a lengthy and expensive process to ensure their apps are up to scratch. This could have been an inconvenience, but one unlikely to harm businesses, were it not for the September 3 deadline. This falls days before the start of the National Football League (NFL) season, and just weeks after the European football season gets underway.With the US market in the early stages and most newly-regulated states aiming to go live in time for the NFL betting bonanza, this lays down a huge obstacle for operators to overcome. It’s worth noting that in New Jersey, online wagering turnover, driven by the wide availability of mobile betting, accounted for 81% of the market total.“Three months to build a fully featured native sportsbook app from scratch for a major operator is a massive undertaking and potentially unrealistic,” digital development agency Degree 53 noted.“It will require sizeable and skilled native development teams to ensure all functionalities are fully compliant. However, operators with less complex products may be able to meet the deadline if they start now.”In Europe, where there is a critical mass of players already gambling via apps, this will create problems for operators. In the US, it could seriously hinder the growth of legal wagering.4. Germany ratifies Third State Treaty on Gambling After years of stalled progress, dashed hopes and frustration, one of Europe’s largest gambling markets took a definitive step towards introducing a viable regulatory framework. At a glance, things don’t look particularly different. The newly-ratified State Treaty still restricts the market to sports betting, and operators will pay a hefty 5% turnover tax. In-play wagering remains prohibited, and players are restricted to a €1,000 monthly spending limit.However, this regime will only be in place until June 30, 2021, and in 15 of the country’s 16 federal states. Schleswig-Holstein, which has long rebelled against the Treaty, will continue with its own liberal, multi-vertical model, also until June 30, 2021.This cut-off date is important, as it acts as a deadline for the states to reach a consensus on a new, long-term model for gambling regulations. And for the first time, it appears that a majority of states support a liberalised model.Leading German gambling lawyer Wulf Hambach has suggested that Rhineland-Palatinate, North Rhine-Westphalia and Baden-Wuerttemberg all support the Schleswig-Holstein approach, with Bavaria, Saxony-Anhalt and Saxony leaning towards adopting its framework. Just Hamburg, Berlin, Brandenburg and Bremen appear set against it.Germany finally appears to be heading towards a viable regulatory model. Negotiations are ongoing, but momentum is building. However, this should not be taken as a sign that regulators are willing to turn a blind eye to non-compliant operators. Online casino remains prohibited, and the state of Niedersachsen has begun to use blocking orders to stop payment providers processing transactions to gambling sites. Just one such order has been issued to date, but it has pledged more will follow.3. Oddsshark faces NJ shutdown over illegal gaming promotion The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement’s decision to move against affiliate Oddshark for promoting unlicensed sites including Bovada, Betonline and 5Dimes in the state showed that no site is too big to fail. The site was returned by 7.7% of all Google searches on gambling carried out between December 2015 and January 2019, according to Pi Datametrics, making it one of the best-known gambling portals in the market.Now it has effectively been forced out of the state, with the DGE ordering all licensed operators and suppliers to cease working with Oddshark.This case highlights the DGE’s willingness to be swift and brutal where required – all offshore links quickly disappeared from other affiliates active in New Jersey. It also highlights the scale of the task facing regulators from unlicensed market incumbents.In an exclusive report for iGaming Business, H2 Gambling Capital estimated the illegal US market’s annual gross win to be in the region of $11.2bn. The legal US market, in terms of gross win, amounts to around 4% of that. More is wagered illegally than is wagered on the Las Vegas Strip, H2 noted. Handle is comparable to revenue generated by tech giant Apple in 2017, it added.At the current growth rate, H2 believes that it will take until 2030 at the earliest for the legal US market to outgrow its illegal counterpart. As more states open up, there will be more pressure on regulators to crack down on offshore operators. Little federal action has been taken since indictments on leading poker sites were unsealed in 2011, but we could potentially see a second ‘Black Friday’ in the near future.2. BetBright closes after 888 acquisition The shutdown of BetBright’s customer-facing sportsbook following the business’ acquisition by 888 prompted an outcry from aggrieved punters. The deal itself has been widely queried and even criticised by industry analysts. It also caused the share price of 888’s current sportsbook technology partner Kambi to dip.It was one of two deals struck by 888 in the first half of 2019, alongside the acquisition of the underperforming Mandalay bingo assets from JPJ Group. This follows 888 losing the contract to power the GVC-owned Cashcade brands. The deals were struck on new chief executive Itai Pazner’s watch, after he replaced Itai Frieberger in the role in January.With the gradual opening of the US sports betting market, the vertical appears to be dominating operators’ thoughts, which would explain 888 looking to bring its technology in-house. However this brings with it risks; the Kambi product has performed well, with revenue from January 1 to May 18 up 29% year-on-year. If the launch of the BetBright-powered platform is not perfectly executed, it could lose players and see revenue fall.The deal for the Mandalay assets, including Costa Bingo, appears to be a move to shore up a struggling bingo vertical. Revenue was flat year-on-year for the first 15 weeks of 2019, and it faces a new competitor in the combined Rank Group and Stride Gaming business. It also highlights a growing trend of established operators looking to take control of their own destiny by acquiring technology. The wave started by 888-BetBright has continued with the Rank-Stride deal and most recently, JPJ Group’s deal to acquire Gamesys’ bingo and gaming assets and technology platform. 1. US DoJ rules Wire Act applies to all forms of gambling The news that every US gambling business feared was confirmed in January, when the Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel announced that it believed the 1961 Wire Act applied to all forms of gambling. The decision, which many including New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal attributed to pressure from anti-igaming lobbyists funded by Las Vegas Sands chief executive Sheldon Adelson, looked set to impact the entire industry.In particular, lotteries appeared to be at risk. Popular games such as Powerball, which runs across multiple states, looked set to be ruled an illegal form of gambling. With states’ iLottery offerings powered by servers in other territories, huge sources of funding looked set to disappear.This prompted the New Hampshire Lottery to challenge the stance, and ultimately succeed in having the revised opinion set aside. This was a major victory for both the lottery and a number of states which filed amicus briefs in the case.However, the DoJ could well appeal the District Court ruling, which would see the case progress to the First Circuit Court of Appeals. As New Jersey’s battle for legal betting shows, having judgements go against you in multiple courts does not mean you won’t ultimately prevail. A memo from the Department instructing staff to hold off on enforcing the revised opinion until December 31, 2019 suggests it won’t go down without a fight.The odds are stacked against it, however. Congressional Representatives are looking to amend a bill that funds the Department to block any of that money being used for Wire Act enforcement.It is also likely to prompt states to be a little warier in approving the launch of new products. This has already been highlighted in West Virginia, where the state Lottery Commission has delayed the launch of DraftKings’ mobile wagering app to ensure it is compliant with the Wire Act. Whether or not a piece of legislation passed to crack down on organised crime running gambling rackets from 1961 should be applied in the internet age is another matter entirely. The industry’s opponents are unlikely to be deterred by a single setback. This case is far from over.

As such, I think dividend stocks could now be a much better investment, for those savers looking to retire early. Today, I’m going to explain why. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The benefits of dividend stocksSavers would be hard pushed to find a flexible savings account today that offers more than 1% per annum in interest. On the other hand, the UK stock market supports an average dividend yield of around 3.5%.Therefore, dividend stocks are more attractive from an income perspective in the current environment. However, I don’t think it’s sensible for savers to put 100% of their money into dividend stocks. This approach would leave them with no cash cushion to cover any unforeseen expenses.Instead, I think it may be sensible to invest a large percentage of savings into high-quality dividend stocks. An allocation of 60-70% would allow savers to boost their interest income while keeping some money back. This is only a rough guide and will vary from person to person. Still, if you’re serious about being able to retire early, using dividend stocks to boost your income could be a very sensible strategy. Retire earlyInvestors are spoilt for choice when it comes to finding attractive dividend stocks. Many companies on the London Stock Exchange offer an attractive level of income.However, some of these distributions should be avoided. Investors should stick the companies that can maintain their payouts. I’d be drawn to businesses that have a high level of dividend cover, strong balance sheets and durable competitive advantages. To put it another way, concentrating on the level of the dividend yield alone could be a mistake. A 3% dividend or so might not look attractive compared to a 10% payout. But I’d rather have a 3% yield for 10 years than 10% for a year. Focus on the long term If you are looking for investments to help you retire early, I highly recommend focusing on blue-chip dividend stocks. Companies like Legal & General and Halma are both great examples.These two are leaders in their respective fields and have a long track record of returning cash to investors with dividends. Considering the economies of scale both organisations have, I reckon it’s likely this trend will continue. An investment of £5,000 in these two businesses would produce a dividend yield of 5.2%. There’s also the potential for capital growth in the long run. With their higher returns, these two dividend stocks could help you retire early, but they’re not the only companies I’d consider for an income portfolio. There’s a whole range of high-quality blue-chip stocks out there on the market that offer high single-digit dividend yields.So what are you waiting for? Now could be the time to stop saving and start buying dividend stocks.  See all posts by Rupert Hargreaveslast_img read more

A group of people or a few nations enjoy a high standard of living while millions scrape just to get by. Why can’t we come up with a philosophy / religion where everyone is assured of adequate food, proper housing, good education, medical care, jobs, etc. Or do we just provide sermons on The Good Samaritan? Or Miss USA to say health care is a “privilege”? September 9, 2017 at 12:18 pm The concerns for victims of racism seem to cause a reaction in some people that I don’t understand. Apologizing for past wrongs does not negate the good done by our ancestors…it simply acknowledges that sin must be named in order to be overcome. I also agree that extremists on both sides need to be called out; two wrongs don’t make a right. Jesus reminds us to remove the plank in our own eye before we try to remove the speck in the eye of our neighbor. We can move forward together if we keep Christ’s example in focus.

The era may have changed from the 1800s but be assured that each of our lives is intertwined in the dependence on someone’s servitude and misery, often captivity, just so we can enjoy our lifestyles. This is why I am so unmoved by all of the talk of oppression and perplexed by the constant visitation of anathemas on those who died well over a century ago. The clothing, cars, watches, batteries, seafood, shoes, jewelry and more of America’s “oppressed” are stained with the tears and blood of modern-day captives around the globe, and some within this country. From the Presiding Bishop all the way down to the newborn infant in our church basement Nursery, WE ALL benefit from the servile misery of faceless people around the planet. I am very sure that no one has a cogent recommendation on how to bankrupt ourselves and ruin our economies and social order to break the bonds of the slaves that we are so dependent upon. Since that is the case we have everything in common with those Southern Americans (and many, many others in the North) who were unwilling to be ruined on the eve of the Civil War. The heart-wrenching and pleading note sent by a Chinese worker in one of her wares bound for the West gets little attention as people in this country noisily clamor to claim some aggrieved status while enjoying a lifestyle that rivals most of the planet. Talk about “white privilege” is somehow hollow as Americans of all races stand with little concern on the broken bodies and dreams of today’s slaves — ALL are privileged because of the reliance on misery.Until the day that the people of 2017 shed our interdependence on this system of heartbreak and hopelessness there is not one song, sign, sermon, or criticism that can be leveled against Americans of the 1860s.Jesus said all of this simpler, and I add to it: Remove the board out of your own eye before trying to remove the splinter from …….the dead. Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and the Rev. Paul Walker stand at the foot of the Robert E. Lee statue in Charlottesville, Virginia. The statue is wrapped in plastic while the city fights a legal challenge to the monument’s removal. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Charlottesville, Virginia] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry on Sept. 7 visited each of Charlottesville’s three Episcopal churches, spoke at length with clergy and diocesan officials, and preached at an evening worship service here, less than a month after violence during a white supremacist rally thrust this Southern college town into the national spotlight.Curry’s message was one of support, and of the power of Jesus’ love to show the way forward.“We have been praying for you. We will continue to pray with you. Above all, we stand together,” Curry said in his sermon before the hundreds of people who filled St. Paul’s Memorial Church overlooking the University of Virginia campus.On Aug. 12, Episcopal and other faith leaders joined with anti-racism counter-protesters in solidarity against the hate groups that had amassed in Charlottesville to oppose removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. The confrontation sparked clashes that injured dozens and left one counterprotester dead.The melee also amplified a national debate over statues of Lee and other Confederate symbols, including at Episcopal institutions. In Charlottesville, subsequent City Council meetings have featured raucous debate on the issue, leading to a unanimous vote Sept. 5 to remove a second Confederate statue, the Daily Progress reported.The Rev. Paul Walker (left), rector of Christ Episcopal Church in Charlottesville, Virginia, speaks with the presiding bishop at an informal orientation. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceThe Episcopal churches in Charlottesville are focused on healing and weren’t looking to generate headlines by inviting Curry, said the Rev. Paul Walker, rector of Christ Episcopal Church, a large congregation in downtown Charlottesville. He and other clergy members were grateful Curry agreed to this pastoral visit, a day filed mostly with private gatherings, as well as the public worship service.Curry began the day at Christ Church, where bishops of the Diocese of Virginia met him around 9:30 a.m. for an informal orientation. He thanked them and the local Episcopal community for its work – “not just what you have done but who you were in the midst of all this.”Christ Church is on the corner opposite Emancipation Park, where the statue of Lee now is wrapped in a layer of plastic as the city resolves a legal fight over its removal. The park is visible from Walker’s second-floor office window, and before the day’s proceedings got underway, he walked Curry across the street to spend a few minutes at the foot of the Lee statue discussing its history and pending fate.From there, the group drove a short distance northwest to Trinity Episcopal Church. It’s a smaller and historically black, but diversifying, congregation that on Aug. 12 hosted an afternoon prayer service for faith-based groups to conclude their day of opposition to the white supremacist rally.On Sept. 7, Trinity’s vicar, the Rev. Cass Bailey, welcomed Curry in the parish hall for conversations – Curry would later describe it as “sacred time” – with about 50 priests and deacons from the 18 congregations in the diocesan region around Charlottesville.The meeting was not open to the public, but later in the day, Diocese of Virginia Bishop Shannon Johnston said it was a profoundly meaningful experience for those present. Curry served as chief pastor to them and provided a ministry of encouragement, Johnston said, and affirmed the support of the Episcopal Church.“In times like Charlottesville has come through, the feeling of being connected to the larger body is extremely important,” said Johnston, who was in Charlottesville on Aug. 12 with other Episcopal clergy members.Curry answers questions during a luncheon at Christ Episcopal Church. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceJohnston introduced Curry at his next stop, a luncheon back at Christ Church. More than 100 attended, primarily members of Diocese of Virginia governing boards and committees. Curry, in his remarks to them, again applauded those who stood up and spoke out against racism in Charlottesville last month.“I was never prouder to be an Episcopalian, in all the pain, than I was when I saw you,” Curry said, while underscoring that the issue of racism is bigger than one city.“We never fully resolved or brought to completion the issues that were engaged in the Civil War, or the War Between the States,” he said. “The fundamental issues didn’t get resolved. And nobody in this room was there, and nobody in this room did it. But we’re stuck with it.”Racism is a demon that “still must be engaged,” he said. “We’ve come here to figure out how do we follow Jesus in a time such as this, and how do we do it with integrity and with a sense of wholesomeness and in ways that can help us all end the nightmare and realize God’s dream.”Curry also spent time Sept. 7 with Episcopal college students from the Charlottesville area and those attending the University of Virginia. The afternoon meeting took place in the parish hall at St. Paul’s, a couple hours before Curry preached at the Eucharist in the church.The Rev. Will Peyton, rector at St. Paul’s, alluded to Curry’s role as chief pastor in an interview with Episcopal News Service before the presiding bishop’s visit.“I’m grateful to him, to take care of us, to express the care of the church,” Peyton said. “I think there really is a pretty universal feeling in Charlottesville that we were attacked.”St. Paul’s Memorial Church in Charlottesville, Virginia, overlooks the campus of the University of Virginia. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServicePeyton, whose church hosted a prayer service Aug. 11 on the eve of the white supremacist rally, kicked off the Sept. 7 worship service with a welcoming message that was followed by a long procession of choir and clergy.Curry’s half-hour sermon directly addressed the prior month’s events in Charlottesville only briefly, yet his message of Christian love and compassion was an intentionally pointed contrast to the hate-filled views promoted by the neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klan members and other supremacist groups that rallied behind the Lee statue.He began by recounting the Gospel reading, the depiction in John 18:33-37 of Jesus’ response to Pilate. “Jesus was telling us then, and telling us now, that there is another way.”Curry went on to pull in additional biblical references, from the Beatitudes and from Jesus’ last discourse in John 13-17 and his command to “love one another,” even your enemies. He continued that God’s unconditional love is embodied in Jesus’ selfless sacrifice on the cross.“That kind of love is counterintuitive, it is counter to this world, but it can change this world,” Curry boomed to applause.The presiding bishop also invoked the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s rules for nonviolent direct action, which began with the command to meditate on the teachings of Jesus. He also shared a personal story, of a white man who once told him that the love shown by members of an Episcopal congregation had changed his life and prompted him to convert and turn away from his family’s past in the Ku Klux Klan.The lesson, Curry said, is to be people of Jesus’ love without shame and to bear witness to that love. He concluded with a message specifically for the Charlottesville crowd.“Charlottesville. Virginia. Lift up your heads, straighten your backs, walk together,” he said. “Walk together and work together and live the way of love until the love of God transforms this world.”— David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

We are slaveholders just as surely as Americans in 1860. We are just like them in that we haven’t found a way or the will to destroy systems in order to create true equity. The hypocrisy of believing ourselves superior to those of another era is galling. Until we have literally ruined ourselves and destroy our entitlement and privilege system then we have nothing to say to those 150 years ago who likewise found the way forward almost impossible.

A rental housing building in a village south of Granada, where Vega River begins to flow surrounded by the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Trapezoidal plot is located in a crossroad and has a buildable area of over 100 m2. The southwest side of the plot is adjacent, while other sides are streets: Carretera de Gojar on southeast, Avenida Carmen Morcillo on the northwest and Alhambra Street on the northeast.Save this picture!© Fernando Alda The building is constructed occupying the entire plot, after the additional part was given from the City Council, consolidating the corner of the block. It has three floors  above the ground and a basement that serves the local store on the ground floor. On the upper floors are located flats, each with two bedrooms and kitchen. Access to the building is from Avenida Carmen Morcillo. Staircase and elevator are placed in the middle, creating the core with the adjacent installations and leaving the rest of the floor free of installations.From the upper floors  magnificent views of the valley and Sierra Nevada can be enjoyed.This work has been designed and built economical and racional. Economical not only in the construction but also maintaining the bulding in a sustainable way.Save this picture!© Fernando Alda The main issue is the insulation to minimize energy losses and to optimize the use of natural light. Constructional airbricks are coated with insulation plasterboard in the inside and with ceramic coating on the outside, to create a better insulation.All building facades, like a cover of the book, are coated with a stoneware  double-burned in 1220 degrees and enameled in white sierra nevada colour. Entire building has been modulated for these 40×80 stoneware pieces, which are anchored to the facade by hidden staples.Save this picture!© Fernando Alda The research in new materials is realized through the use of an enamel which is characteristic forit’s ability to capture CO2. Composition of calcium hydroxide Ca (OH) 2 created through optimization and reorganization of the carbide lime waste generated in the process of obtaining acetylene gas. The primary particle size, due to obtaining this alternative route is presented below 100nm (nanomaterial) enabling a high reactivity towards CO2. Ca (OH) 2 + H2O + CO2 CaCO3. According to this equation: 0.59 tonnes of CO2 per tonne of Ca (OH) 2. Moisture conditions are optimal to favor Gójar setting process.This stoneware shines in the sun like snow in the Sierra Nevada, coating all the building’s walls and roof with 40×80 pieces.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow less20 Architects Design a Dolls’ House for KIDSArchitecture NewsAD Classics: The National Art Schools of Cuba / Ricardo Porro, Vittorio Garatti, Rob…Architecture ClassicsProject locationAddress:Gójar, Granada, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

Given the growing offer of multifamily housing developments in the Tulum area, the project seeks to establish a group where the sense of community is returned. Beyond the repetition of vertically stacked repetitive products, Kiki is about belonging to the whole, where the units, although defined and independent, are understood in their relationship with each other forming an inseparable building, a porous and permeable monolith. Save this picture!© Eduardo Calvo SantisbónThe project strategy is based on a reticular grid structure of 3.60 meters in which the housing units can be configured modularly from one to two bedrooms as required, providing products of 26, 52 and 78 square meters. This scheme allows us to generate subtractions at various levels to obtain terraces and controlled views of the context. Save this picture!© Eduardo Calvo SantisbónSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Eduardo Calvo SantisbónAccess is achieved by a large public porch that connects the building with the street and serves as a threshold to access the central courtyard, which organizes the nine units (divisible to twelve) in quadrants around a community space among the inhabitants of the set, and which in turn leads to the public terrace and pool on the third level, connecting them with the Tulum jungle at treetop level.

The project will run for three years and is designed to encourage enough adults into the organisation to ensure all girls who want to be a Rainbow, Brownie or Guide have an opportunity to join.

And it’s not just women who can get involved. We are also targeting men to help out – they can’t run units but they can lend a hand as a unit helper”.center_img New volunteer recruitment campaign by Girlguiding UK Howard Lake | 9 February 2005 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

San Diego, July 5: Latinx group, union members welcome Cuban labor leader

first_imgVictor Manuel Lemagne Sánchez at Unite HERE Local 30 in San Diego.On July 5, San Diego welcomed the historic visit of Victor Manuel Lemagne Sánchez, a representative of the Cuban Workers Central Union (La Central de Trabajadores de Cuba). A reception and discussion were hosted by UNITE HERE at the Local 30 headquarters, and sponsored by Unión Del Barrio and Workers World Party.  Opening remarks were made by a representative from UNITE HERE, and the meeting was chaired by Benjamin Prado of Unión del Barrio.Lemagne Sánchez, who is the secretary-general of the International Union of Hotels and Tourism for the Americas and the Caribbean, began his presentation by pointing out that this is the first time since 2000 that a representative of the Federation of Cuban Workers has been granted a visa to meet with the U.S. labor movement.  Many times in his presentation he spoke of conversations during his U.S. tour with workers who were not getting the basic benefits that are guaranteed in Cuba. These include education, health care, vacation time, child care and paid time off.One example he used was the amount of rooms cleaned per worker per day in hotels, and the attention paid to the chemicals used cleaning the rooms. All of this is evaluated scientifically in Cuba because the workers are first priority. The workers are in control, which is why they take pride in their work. It is important and encouraged that workers actively participate in all the decisions that are made concerning the work and the workplace.Lemagne Sánchez emphasized that 95 percent of Cuban workers belong to a union and that belonging to a union in Cuba is a conscious, voluntary decision that is made by every worker. This is the result of educating the workers, which is done by the union organizers door-to-door.Prior to discussion,Lemagne Sánchez handed out a tourism brochure to everyone, along with a sticker referencing Auténtica Cuba, a website guide to Cuban tourism in English. (tinyurl.com/y77anvzv)The meeting and presentation were in Spanish and there were transceivers available for translation.  After the presentation, Prado opened the floor to discussion and emphasized that this was the most important part of this reception: the exchange of ideas. Some of the local community organizations present included the Association of Raza Educators, All of Us or None, the Chicano Prison Project, the Free Mumia and the Free Leonard Peltier coalitions and individuals from Friends of the Malcolm X Library.Prado ended the discussion by asking that all organizations write a letter or sign on to a statement supporting the movement to end the U.S. blockade of Cuba.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Yields from Late Planted Crops Likely to Tail Off

first_img By Andy Eubank – Oct 12, 2017 SHARE Previous articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for October 13, 2017Next articleHarvest Window About to Reopen Andy Eubank Home Indiana Agriculture News Yields from Late Planted Crops Likely to Tail Off Facebook Twitter Yields from Late Planted Crops Likely to Tail Off Later-planted-crop-yields-expected-to-fallHarvest delays in Indiana continue because of rainfall this week, but also some fields that were planted late this year haven’t even been ready for harvest up to this point. Indiana-based agronomist Kirby Bacon says the rain delays are pretty prevalent across the state. He adds, one thing that’s been obvious so far this harvest is the performance of early planted crops.“Whether it was corn or soybeans and it got planted in the early to mid-April time frame and it survived those early conditions, we’re going to have and have had some record yielding fields out of those situations,” he told HAT.But later planted crops experienced a different kind of life, and Bacon believes the yield results coming later in the harvest will also be different.“It went through a different series of weather events at a different time, and even though it might have been in relative close proximity, if that planting was substantially later, it had a different entire experience for the year. So, I’m seeing in general that we’re going to see yields kind of tail off after that real early planted stuff gets harvested.”As work in the field starts again, Bacon recommends prioritizing fields that had challenges like seedling blight and stand establishment. He says get to those fields as quickly as you can and leave the fields showing higher quality stalks for later.Hear more in the HAT podcast with Bacon, technical agronomist with DEKALB-Asgrow:Crop-update-podcast-with-Kirby-Bacon SHARE Facebook Twitterlast_img read more
