It was smaller sized than i imagined if a hair slide is enough for your purposes it is fantastic but not as a substitute for a fascinator. Some of the feather strands were crinkled thanks to the restricted packaging but couple of seconds over a steaming kettle before long set that correct.

OSU to hold grain bin rescue demonstration

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Agriculture safety experts with the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State University will hold a demonstration June 26 to help educate growers on grain bin safety.Ohio State University Extension educators, first responders with the Ohio Fire Academy and Paulding County firefighters will hold the grain bin rescue demonstration at 6:30 p.m. at the Paulding County OSU Extension Office, 503 Fairground Drive in Paulding.The demonstration is part of a two-day training program for farm families, 4-H youth, grain bin elevator employees, firefighters and first responders, said Sarah Noggle, an OSU Extension educator. The program will include demonstrations using the Grain Community Agricultural Rescue Trailer (C.A.R.T.) – Ohio’s first grain rescue simulatorOSU Extension is the outreach arm of the college.The Friday portion of the event will feature a grain bin rescue demonstration designed to create awareness of grain bin safety for the general public, Noggle said. Saturday’s training event is specifically for local firefighters.The grain bin rescue simulation helps prevent grain-handling injuries and increases grain bin safety education for farmers and farm families, Noggle said.“This kind of safety education and training is important because some people aren’t aware of the dangers involved with grain bins, silos and hopper wagons,” she said. “Even a small amount of grain in them can be dangerous.“If we can save one life by doing the training and increasing awareness, it is so worth it.”Designed by CFAES faculty and students, the Grain C.A.R.T. is mounted on a 40-foot flatbed trailer and includes a grain bin, grain leg, gravity wagon and other training essentials.The Grain C.A.R.T. is used statewide by the Ohio Fire Academy in its agricultural rescue direct-delivery training modules to educate first responders on grain bin engulfment.It’s also being used with OSU Extension’s grain bin rescue outreach education program in rural communities to raise awareness among grain industry employees and farm families about the hazards of flowing grain.Grain bin rescues can be classified as confined-space rescues, requiring technical training in various capacities. Rescue personnel have requested specific training in these unconventional rescue situations, where they have limited experience and limited knowledge of the agricultural conditions that exist, according to OSU Extension officials.The need for grain-handling safety programs is significant, considering that every year approximately 26 Ohio farm workers lose their lives to production agriculture. Flowing grain and grain storage is one of the contributing factors. In the past 10 years, 14 Ohio farmers have died due to engulfments in grain bins, entanglements in augers, falls from grain bin-related structures and electrocution.Just this month, a veterinarian was found dead inside a grain feed mixer on his family farm in Madison County.Safety tips OSU Extension has for growers and anyone working with grain bins and silos include:• Stay out of the grain bin if possible.• Never enter a grain bin when the unloading equipment is on, even if the grain isn’t flowing.• Never enter a grain bin alone. If entry into the bin is necessary, always have at least one observer outside the bin, and make sure all augers are turned off. One person is to enter the bin, and the others should remain outside in case an emergency occurs. Always use a body harness with a lifeline secured to the outside of the bin.• Wear an N-95 respirator when working around grain, as it keeps 95 percent of the dust and other pollutants from the grain from entering the lungs.• Don’t enter a bin that has automatic unloading equipment without first locking out power to the equipment.• Be cautious around out-of-condition grain, including grain caked to walls. Dangers result from molds, blocked flow, cavities, crusting and grain avalanches.• Lock doors, gates and discharge chutes of any grain storage units.• Keep kids out of grain wagons, carts and semi beds.• Block ladders and egress points (for example, a ladder guard) to limit kids’ access.last_img read more

Deal or no deal: Finding the right nitrogen rate

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest One of the largest investments in a corn crop is the nitrogen (N) application, and many farmers will be sidedressing their corn soon. Especially with this year’s profit outlook, it is important to carefully consider how much N to apply. Deciding on the correct N rate can be a lot like playing the game “Deal or no deal.”“Deal or no deal” was a TV game show that aired a few years ago. The game consisted of a series of 26 cases, each containing a different amount of money ranging from $0.01 to $1,000,000. A contestant would select a case at random, and then play the game to reveal how much money was in their case, or try to sell their case for more than it was worth.Each corn field will require a certain amount of N to reach its maximum yield potential. However, that ideal rate is a lot like the dollar value in the contestant’s case — it isn’t known until the end of the game (harvest). So we have to use the tools that we have available to make our best guess as to what that ideal rate will be when we make the application.The average is usually a good place to start. It’s easy to take the value of all the cases in the game and determine that, on average, a contestant will take home $131,477.54. Iowa State University, in association with The Ohio State University, developed an online calculator that estimates the maximum return to N rate (the rate at which you achieve maximum yield per dollar of N invested). To use the tool, go to http://cnrc.agron.iastate.edu/, select Ohio, and enter your cost of N along with your value of corn. The tool uses multiple years of university studies to provide the N rate which, on average, will be most profitable for your farm. However, this average could still be quite different than the actual ideal rate that a crop needs, just like a contestant wouldn’t want to give up the $1,000,000 case for the average case value.In the game of “Deal or no deal,” the potential value of the contestant’s case is narrowed down as the game progresses and they open other cases, eliminating the possibilities of what might be in their own case. In farming, each passing day is like opening another case. Each day’s weather will tell a little bit more about how much N is available to the crop. If May and June bring a lot of sunny days and just enough rainfall in small increments, then any early-applied N is most likely still available to the crop. Or, if a field experiences several heavy rainfall events, there is a good chance that some of the N has been lost. Split-applying N or delaying an application can put more weather behind you when making the application, therefore narrowing the range that that final ideal rate will fall in.Periodically throughout the game show, the banker will offer to buy the contestant’s case by analyzing the current situation in the game. While neither the contestant nor the banker knows exactly what is in the case, the banker’s offer gives the contestant an idea of what the case is worth. Farmers can use tools in a similar way to estimate how much N their crop will need based on the current conditions. Using a Pre-sidedress Soil Nitrate Test (PSNT) or other similar test can help you know how much N is currently in the soil and how much you might need to add to get close to that final ideal rate. This can be especially helpful if you applied some N early, applied manure, or expect to get some N credit from a cover crop.At some point, the contestant must end the game, either by opening all of the cases or selling to the banker. As a farmer, using the tools available to you such as online calculators, delayed/split applications, and/or soil testing can help you make a better deal when it comes to deciding how much N to apply.last_img read more

HP Exec Hints at WebOS Future: Smartphones, Tablets, PCs & More

first_imgHP is planning to reveal an iPad rival next month which will run the mobile operating system called webOS, the primary asset HP gained when it merged with Palm last summer. At least, that’s our take in listening to the statements made by HP exec Todd Bradley, an executive VP in the company’s Personal Systems Group, who spoke about webOS’s future in a recent CNBC interview.But according to Bradley, tablets aren’t all HP has in store for webOS.  He spoke of the operating system coming to more devices, “everything from smartphones to tablets to PCs to potentially other large screen devices.”  PCs? TVs? What does HP have planned? Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement sarah perez Other Devices?While it’s expected that an iPad rival is top on the list as to what’s being revealed next month, it’s clear that HP has much more planned for webOS. Given Bradley’s hints about “other devices,” we’re interested in learning how exactly HP has integrated webOS components into its PC line, for example. Will there be a webOS layer that can run on top of Windows? Will you have dual-booting machines? Will webOS power small screens embedded in a notebook’s shell? Will there actually be desktop or notebook PCs running just webOS?And what’s this about webOS on other large screen devices? Larger than a PC? Well that means TV, of course. What’s HP working on there? Its own Apple TV/Google TV rival?Dropping broad hints about HP’s iPad rival, a known entity at this point, almost throws us off course from the bigger news here. HP’s most exciting reveal may be its webOS ecosystem plans, not the webOS  tablet itself. This news is bound to shake up the industry – a Windows OEM pushing a new operating system throughout its product line, from tablets to PCs and more, instead of just building a tablet alone? Very interesting.You can watch the video for yourself here:Via PreCentral Tags:#mobile#NYT#web Related Posts center_img The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology HP’s webOS PlansWhen asked how HP will differentiate itself from its competitors like the iPad, Bradley said “you and I will talk about that on the 9th,” referring to the February press conference the company will soon hold in San Francisco where the focus will be on webOS.The statement also practically confirms that the announcement will involve the unveiling of HP’s new tablet computer.And that won’t be all, says Bradley. “We’re totally focused on the tablet market… but the tablet is one piece of that ecosystem, one piece of that connected experience we’re going to create,” he said.So how does the PC fit into HP’s plans? Are we moving away from the PC?, the interviewer asked.“I would say that we’re not moving away from the PC,” said Bradley. “I would say that our focus…is really connected devices – it’s mobile, it’s portable…how do we create that connected experience that allows you to safely, seamlessly access that content that is so important to you?”He then explained how tablets are great for content consumption, and PCs are great for content creation, and that the tablet market was not cannibalizing the PC market – it was adjacent to it. It comes down to the purpose of what you need the product for: consumption or creation. “It’s not a generational shift,” Bradley said, responding to a question about the demographics of tablet users, “it’s optimization of usage.”Last week, HP invited select press to attend “an exciting webOS announcement” scheduled for Feb. 9 in San Francisco. The tagline for the event – “Think Big. Think Small. Think Beyond.” – makes even more sense in light of Bradley’s comments about the mobile operating system’s multi-platform future.
