Juniors learn from the best

first_imgThe nattily outfitted Tonkham aspires to be like Tiger Woods, who some day will likely play the senior tour, open to pros 50 and older. Eger eyed the youths before tee time. “Having been a junior golfer many decades ago – we all played junior golf; none of us took up the game when we were 40 – I understand the importance of junior golf,” he said. “There’s nothing better than watching kids play golf.” And of those internal butterflies. “That’s a good thing,” he said. The county program offers free golf lessons on public courses to those younger than 18 in weeklong summer and after-school sessions. Most have never set foot on a course before, although a handful have gone on to high school programs, said Mike McMonegal, assistant golf director/junior golf director for the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation. He helped create the program after spending 14 years as a golf pro at the Lakewood Golf Course. “The excitement of them getting to play with the legends of the game is incredible,” he said. “I’m sure they lost sleep last night over the chance to play with these guys.” judy.orourke@dailynews.com (661) 257-5255 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Congress warned of tax hitch

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.In a letter to Congress, Paulson also again warned Congress that failure to pass an AMT fix would expose 21 million mostly unsuspecting taxpayers to the minimum tax – and an average tax increase of $2,000. The AMT originally was designed to make sure that the wealthiest couldn’t use tax breaks or deductions to eliminate their entire tax liability. But the tax doesn’t adjust for inflation, so more middle class taxpayers are ensnared by the AMT each year unless Congress acts. Democrats controlling Congress have promised to make sure the AMT doesn’t entrap more taxpayers during filing season next year. But House and Senate Democrats have yet to agree on specifics of an AMT fix or whether to raise revenues elsewhere in the tax code so that an AMT adjustment doesn’t add to the deficit. Republicans say that since the AMT was never intended to hit the middle class, legislation to reform it should not be subject to pay-as-you-go rules that require tax cuts to be “paid for” with loophole closures or rate increases. “This is not a new tax cut that should be paid for,” said Rep. Jim McCrery of Louisiana, top Republican on the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee. “This is preventing a tax increase.” The IRS is gearing up its computer programs and 2007 tax forms are going to press in November. Paulson warned that delays in enacting an AMT bill could expose up to 25 million taxpayers to delays in processing of their returns and payment of refunds. Paulson told lawmakers that delaying enactment of an AMT fix until mid-November or later would cause “significant compliance challenges and will result in confusion for taxpayers, tax return preparers and tax software developers.” Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., chairman of the Finance Committee, said he’s intent on getting the AMT changed but that Congress has had comparable delays on tax legislation without disastrous consequences. “We ran into this problem last year or the year before and it’s a little inconvenient but the world didn’t fall apart,” Baucus said. “But still obviously the goal is to get it done.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

How long do we have for late planted soybeans to mature?

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Dusty Sonnenberg, CCA, Ohio Field LeaderIn a typical year, by the time Farm Science Review rolls around, many of the soybeans in the state of Ohio have started to turn a bright fall yellow color and are quickly drying down. Some fields in the southern regions have even been harvested. But it has not been a typical year. In the southern part of the state much of the crop is on schedule, and the yield has already been determined. In the northern regions, many beans are still very green and filling pods. Soybeans found in the R4 to R5 growth stage are not uncommon in much of northern Ohio. The question among many growers is, “How long do we have to complete the grain fill period?”According to the University of Missouri and Missouri Soybean Center, soybean yield is a product of the number of days of seed fill and rate at which the seeds fill. The vegetative growth that occurs before and after flowering builds the photosynthetic factory and creates a greater rate of seed fill. Later maturing varieties will produce more leaves before flowering starts and will also have a greater number of days for seed filling. These soybeans may have a faster rate of fill for more days, so they may yield more. Soybeans planted very late will be induced to flower almost immediately after emergence.David Holshouser, an agronomist with Virginia Cooperative Extension, said soybean plants sense changes in night length and initiate flowering only after the night is longer (and days grow shorter) than a critical length.“This is the concept of photo determinism. The length of the day, and thus the length of the photo period available ties directly to the summer solstice. The 2019 summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere was Friday, June 21. Every day after this date has fewer hours and minutes of sunlight. Although technically incorrect, such plants are termed short-day plants. The length of required dark period depends on the species and variety of species,” Holshouser said. “Soybeans are a short-day crop and their development is determined largely by variety-specific daylength requirements that initiate floral development. In other words, as the days grow shorter, soybeans will flower and enter into reproductive development stages. Due to this photoperiod requirement, days from planting until maturity cannot be accurately estimated for soybeans due to variation in planting date and other environmental variations.”This, however, changes once the soybeans flower.“After flowering, temperature drives development and the days until maturity can be estimated. The number of days from floral initiation at R1 until physiological maturity at R7 is usually independent of variety, but will vary slightly from year to year due to temperature differences between years,” he said. “Late planted soybeans initiate flowering during a warmer time of the year; therefore, post-flower development speeds up.”With this in mind, the concerns about frost limiting soybean potential in northern Ohio this year are warranted, said Greg LaBarge, Ohio State University Extension field crops specialist.“Soybeans need both a certain number of days and temperature in order to mature,” LaBarge said. “Typically, in northern Ohio it takes soybeans that are at the R4 growth stage approximately 45 days to reach physiological maturity at R7. Soybeans that are at R5 will take about 35 days. Given that we are past the middle of September, this will push development into early November. That could be a challenge for many of the fields.”The Ohio Agronomy Guide, using data from 1980-2010, lists a median climatological date (50% chance of the first freeze at 32 degrees F), occurring between Oct. 1 and Oct. 20. The Old Farmer’s Almanac has determined Oct. 13, 2019 as the date that has a 30% probability of frost, based on 1981-2010 climate norms.Ohio Field Leader is a project of the Ohio Soybean Council.

Applications From The Internet of Things – An Analysis of Pachube

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting richard macmanus Pachube’s sister company, Haque Design + Research, will also build use cases for Pachube. They’ve been doing this already, for example using some Siemens building management products to demonstrate the power of Pachube.Haque told ReadWriteWeb that Pachube will also be used for large-scale urban infrastructure projects. He referred to this as “massively networked cities,” where there is a lot of data collection and sensor stream management. He declined to name specific examples, but said that Pachube is currently “focused quite heavily onEast Asia.”Haque noted that Pachube is especially concerned with how to make sure sensor datais accessible to consumers. He said that “people aren’t passive consumers of thedata, but actively engaged in producing it.” The idea being that people will take an active role in understanding their cities. This is an ongoing theory that Usman Haque extols in the talks and interviews he does for Pachube.Conclusion: Early Days, But Commercial and Consumer Apps Are ComingOverall, Pachube is “still quite experimental” according to founder Usman Haque. However he said that it will be increasingly used for things like climate data, home automation systems, and more. The company will try to drive usage from both cities, commercial entities (like Siemens) and consumer applications.In Part 3 of this series tomorrow, we look at Pachube’s business model, how it competes with large companies like IBM, and why it’s an open platform.The full 3-Part series on Pachube:Pachube Adds Real-Time Notifications – More Power to The Internet of ThingsApplications From The Internet of Things – An Analysis of PachubeBusiness Models of The Internet of Things – An Analysis of Pachube’s Open Source Platform Last week we reported that Pachube, an open source platform enabling developers to connect sensor data to the Web, had released a real-time notifications feature. We at ReadWriteWeb think that Pachube is an excellent example of one of our Top 5 Trends of 2009: Internet of Things. So we’re going to explore Pachube in-depth in a 3-part series. This is Part 2, where we’ll look at what applications we can expect to see in the coming years from Pachube. I spoke at length to Pachube founder Usman Haque to find out what developers – and Haque’s company itself – will build on the platform.Brief Overview of PachubeFor end users, Pachube enables automation of your environment. For example controlling the lighting in your house, via sensors and the Internet. With its new notifications feature, called “triggers,” Pachube can cause a specific action in external applications or devices. Such as turning on your living room lights when a sensor (say on your garage door) activates.Pachube can be difficult to understand at first glance. At heart it is about connecting environments. However it’s more than just connecting sensors to the Internet. Pachube wants its users to interact with sensor data and use it to actively engage with their environment. Experimental ApplicationsA lot of current Pachube projects are using Arduino, an open-source electronics prototyping platform that we briefly profiled in February. In July we wrote about an example of Pachube and Arduino being used in concert, Web-connected light sensors.Here’s a newer augmented reality demo, showing live Pachube data displayed in real-time ‘on top’ of Arduino sensor boxes. Tags:#Analysis#Internet of Things#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…center_img We’ll explore some more commercial and consumer applications below – most of them in development or on the agenda for the future. Usman Haque admits that currently Pachube is still at an early, experimental stage. Its website is very much focused on developers and prototypers right now.So what does Pachube offer developers? Usman Haque told us that Pachube’s goal “has always been to do the simplest thing we possibly can, sopeople can get going [connecting their environments].” In a practical sense, Haque explained to us that Pachube is almost like offsite storage for low power processes. Pachube also wants to reach out to existing popular Web platforms. For example it plans to submit to Apple’s iPhone/iPod Touch App Store a “generalized data logger.” This will enable developers to tap into sensor data gathered by the device, using Pachube as the backend to hold and manage the data. Haque added that Pachube’s new notification system will make it possible to build more applications;up till now Pachube has been used mostly by developers as a repository (a place to upload data to).What Commercial Applications Can We Expect in Future?Although Pachube is currently targeting developers, it has an eye on enabling and creating commercial applications for sensor data. A big driver currently is energy monitoring. Haque told us that this will be an area with the mostinnovation in the near future. For example, he said that people could have graphs tracking their long term energy use and comparing it to other people. He noted that this is an “obvious one to build, but nobody has built it yet.” You can see from the Pachube website tag cloud below that energy data is a significant part of Pachube already: A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Batt Insulation: Fiberglass, Mineral Wool, and Cotton

first_imgLast week’s column addressed cellulose insulation, which is the greenest and one of the most effective insulation materials available. But it isn’t always practical or affordable to install cellulose. To insulate walls with cellulose, it’s usually necessary to hire an insulation contractor, and if the job is very small—bumping out and reinsulating one wall of your home, for example—the cost may be prohibitive for that small improvement. This is where batt insulation makes sense.Batt insulation is comprised of a fiber material, most commonly fiberglass, that is held together with a binder and cut to standard dimensions to fit between wall studs, rafters, or joists. It is sold in compressed rolls or bundles, and it expands to the rated thickness when opened up. Some batt insulation has facing on one side made of asphalt-impregnated kraft paper, foil-coated paper, or vinyl; some is fully encased in plastic to prevent fiber-shedding; and some is sold unfaced.By far the most common type of batt insulation—and the most common type of insulation period—is fiberglass. It is made by melting glass and spinning the molten liquid to produce thin fibers, much the way cotton candy is made, but at a much higher temperature. All fiberglass insulation produced in the U.S. today contains at least 30 percent recycled glass. The most common source of that recycled content is glass cullet from window glass manufacturing; the rest is recycled beverage containers.A binder is added to the fiberglass to hold the fibers together. The most common binder is phenol-formaldehyde, which may result in low levels of formaldehyde emissions over time—though most of the formaldehyde is removed during a baking process. One fiberglass insulation manufacturer, Johns Manville, has switched entirely to an acrylic binder to eliminate formaldehyde offgassing.There has been concern that glass fibers might be carcinogenic, like asbestos, but worry about this has decreased in recent years following new studies. If fiberglass insulation is properly installed (so that the insulated cavity is separated from the living area by an air barrier), I am not too worried about fiber shedding once installation is complete. But it is very important to wear gloves, goggles, and a dust mask when installing fiberglass. Also, handle the batts carefully to minimize dust generation.Mineral wool is similar to fiberglass, but the raw material is rock (usually basalt) or slag (a waste material produced mostly from iron ore smelting). As with fiberglass, phenol-formaldehyde binder is typically used in the manufacture. Mineral wool batts are higher-density than fiberglass batts, block sound more effectively, and are more fire resistant—properties that are particularly important in commercial buildings, where most mineral wool insulation is installed.A newer type of batt insulation is made from recycled cotton. Two manufacturers produce cotton batt insulation that is totally free of formaldehyde and can be installed without gloves or other precautions. Bonded Logic, makes the UltraTouch line of cotton insulation, and InsulCot makes a similar product carrying the InsulCot brand. A nontoxic, boron-based (UltraTouch) or phosphorus-based (InsulCot) flame retardant is added to keep the material from igniting if exposed to fire.A wonderful thing about installing cotton insulation is that at the end of the day your eyes and arms aren’t itchy. The material also has a very high recycled content—being made mostly from factory denim scrap. I have found, though, that cotton insulation is harder to cut than fiberglass, and it doesn’t expand to its rated thickness as quickly. It is also a lot more expensive than fiberglass and harder to find. Locally, Renew Building Materials & Salvage on Putney Road in Brattleboro, carries Bonded Logic insulation.Most batt insulation insulates to between R-3.3 and 3.7 per inch, depending on the material and density. Usually, the insulating performance and air tightness isn’t as good as blown-in or damp-spray cellulose.Properly installing batt insulation can be tricky. To get the best energy performance, the batts must entirely fill the wall or ceiling cavities. This means pushing the batts in at the edges and pulling the face out to avoid leaving air pockets. If wires or pipes extend through the cavity, split the batt so that insulation surrounds the wire or pipe and fully fills the cavity. If you simply compress the batt behind or in front of the penetration, your overall insulating value (R-value) will be significantly compromised.last_img read more

The Hustler’s Playbook: Energy Is Critical

first_imgThere is one critical ingredient necessary to hustling and producing. If you have this ingredient (and many don’t), you will have a distinct competitive advantage. If you are lacking it, you will quickly find yourself among the non-hustlers. That one ingredient is energy.Physical EnergyYou need physical energy to hustle. Your capacity for work is determined by how much energy you have. The more energy you have, the greater your potential for work.Some hustlers are born hard-wired with endless physical energy. They have what seems like an never-ending power supply that allows them go longer than almost anyone else. You’re lucky if you are one of them.Most hustlers have to be smarter and manage their energy. They have to focus on creating a system for creating and recovering physical energy. They manage their diet, their exercise, their sleep, and their stress. The strict discipline they apply to their lifestyle is an insurance policy they take to make certain they have the physical energy to produce.Non-hustlers lack energy. They move slow and accomplish little because they lack the physical energy necessary to do better.Mental and Emotional EnergyThere is another kind of energy you need if you are going to hustle (and if you are here, you are going to hustle, aren’t you?). That is emotional energy.It takes mental energy to think. Thinking well is the hardest work you will ever do. The very act of hustling presents you with hundreds of challenges, problems, obstacles, and roadblocks. Whatever your business is, you have to find a way to produce results when those results are difficult to produce. Mental energy is what allows you to find a way where there are no maps, no directions, and no clear path before you.You need emotional energy too. While you are building your dream, you are going to experience setbacks. There are going to be times when your world is turned upside down or when you go backwards. Your emotional energy is what allows you to move forward. Hustling requires that you manage your emotional state.The non-hustler lacks the mental and emotional energy necessary to hustle (even though they could develop it if they chose to).Energy is the currency of hustling, not money. Manage your physical, mental, and emotional states so you can manage your energy. Essential Reading!
