Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Ohio AgriBusiness Association’s 2018 Industry Conference provided extensive education and networking opportunities for agribusiness professionals. The topics covered at the event included economic outlook, crisis communication, hiring challenges, weed and insect management, trade, decision making, nitrogen management, technology, risk management, transportation, cover crops and more.“We’re up this year with attendance, which we are pleased about. We had over 300 people. It boils down to providing good topics, good speakers and creating a good venue for networking,” said Chris Henney, OABA president and CEO. “We are hearing about dicamba and water quality issues like everyone else, but some specific issues in agribusiness are mergers and acquisitions. We are seeing that at the national level but also at every level — state, regional and local. Another real issue is succession planning. There are a lot of baby boomers retiring now or are poised to retire soon. How are we filling those voids?”In addition to the broad array of topics covered, attendees got to hear from Dave Rife, owner of White Castle, who talked about the “Power of Passion” for the family-run fast food hamburger business. Rife talked about treating his 10,000 employees like an extended family in the nationwide restaurant chain and emphasized service to customers and building the brand.The 2018 OABA Awards Initiative recipients were recognized as well including Andrew Gladden, with Luckey Farmers for his Achievement as an Emerging Leader, and Anne Cook, with The Andersons, Inc. for Excellence in Safety & Stewardship. The closing session for the event featured CEOs from across Ohio — George Secor, Sunrise Cooperative; Brad Rivers, Novus Ag; and Phil Farmer, FLM Harvest — in a discussion of how they hire and train employees. They shared many insights about the value of a good internship program, understanding the generational differences in the work place and working find and hire qualified employees.OABA also announced the newly elected members to the Board of Directors:Representing the Agrichemical industry: Nick Franks, Tyler Grain & Fertilizer Co.Representing the Feed industry: Anne Staugler, Big K Mills, Inc.Representing the Grain industry: Scott Thibaut, Consolidated Grain & Barge Inc.Representing the Members-at-Large: Jean Bratton, Centerra Co-op and Greg Logue, The Andersons, Inc.In addition to new members, the Board of Directors has new leadership for 2018-2019. Jackie Seibert of United Equity, Inc. was elected to serve as Vice Chairwoman. Andy Swerlein of Luckey Farmers Inc. transitions from his role as Chairman to Past Chairman. Nathan Louiso of Axis Seed will serve as Chairman of the Board.“I have been involved with OABA for around 10 years and lot of people don’t know that I didn’t grow up on the farm,” Louiso said. “That puts me in a unique position as we look to our membership in the future and the employees of our memberships. I think we need to start reaching out to non-traditional members that maybe didn’t grow up on a farm but that may have an interest in agriculture. Our industry isn’t a special fraternity that requires you to have grown up on a farm.“I think we need to look at things in a different manner given the demand for our industry. All you need is an interest in agriculture and a strong work ethic. New technology is a perfect example. Big data and precision ag has taken off so fast. I don’t think a person necessarily has to come from a farm to be in that space.”The OABA Board of Directors consists of 15 individuals who represent various segments of the agribusiness industry in Ohio, including feed, seed, fertilizer, grain and agrichemical sectors. Board members are elected by OABA member companies to three-year terms and can serve two terms.“I would encourage people to be involved,” Louiso said. “Start on a committee and give back.”The complete list of Board members is:Chairman: Nathan Louiso, Axis SeedVice Chairwoman: Jackie Seibert, United Equity, Inc.Past Chairman: Andy Swerlein, Luckey Farmers, Inc.Jean Bratton, Centerra Co-opEd Burtch, Burtch Seed Company, Inc.Scott Crowder, Central Ohio Farmers Co-opNick Franks, Tyler Grain & Fertilizer Co.Grant Gates, Morral Companies, LLCBrad Johnson, Kalmbach Feeds, Inc.Greg Logue, The Andersons, Inc.Robert Mullen, NutrienAnne Staugler, Big K Mills, Inc.Scott Thibaut, Consolidated Grain & Barge, Inc.John Ward II, ABIS/J.H.

Highlighting the natural beauty of Manipur, Modi said: “Manipur is blessed with immense natural beauty and hardworking citizens. I can never forget the affection I have got in the state. On their Statehood Day, I greet my sisters and brothers of Manipur. May the state continue scaling new heights of development.”Statehood Day greetings to the people of Tripura. In less than a year, the state has made remarkable progress. It is realising it’s true potential and people’s aspirations are being fulfilled at a record pace. May this spirit grow further in the coming years.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) January 21, 2019 Prime Minister Narendra Modi on January 21 extended his greetings to the people of Manipur, Meghalaya and Tripura on their Statehood Day.On the special occasion of their Statehood Day, greetings to the people of Meghalaya. People from Meghalaya have made a notable contribution to our country. I pray for the state’s continuous progress.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) January 21, 2019 The erstwhile princely states of Tripura and Manipur were merged with India in 1949 and became full-fledged states in 1972.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday said that a legal matter pertaining to former Union Finance Minister P. Chidambaram was being handled in a very sad and depressing manner. “Chidambaram is a senior politician, ex-Finance Minister and former Home Minister of this country. The way in which the matter is being handled is very depressing, sad and also bad,” she said. The CBI on Wednesday took Mr. Chidambaram into custody in connection with a case relating to INX Media.Referring to the different institutions in the country, including the judiciary, the Trinamool Congress chairperson said that democracy was in a shambles.“I will not comment on judiciary. But the media is completely sold out to the Bharatiya Janata Party. Whatever the BJP is saying, that is being propagated. The television channels have become panels of the BJP,” she said.Congress leader in the Lok Sabha Adhir Rajnan Chowdhury dubbed the arrest as an act of “political vendetta”. “His criticism has been sharp and direct to which the government had no answer and that is the reason why he has been arrested,” he said.
Congress leader Ahmed Patel on Saturday called the early-morning swearing-in of the BJP’s Devendra Fadnavis as Chief Minister and NCP’s Ajit Pawar as Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra an “illegitimate formation” that would “self-destruct”.The Congress was in for a surprise when, after negotiations between the three allies till late in the night, Mr Pawar joined hands with the BJP. The three sides were scheduled to meet on Saturday to tie up the last remaining loose ends. Mr Patel, along with general secretary in-charge Mallikarjun Kharge and general secretary (organisation) K.C. Venugopal, was holding the negotiations on behalf of the Congress. “Illegal and evil manoeuvres take place in the secrecy of midnight. Such was the shame that they had to do the swearing-in in hiding. This illegitimate formation will self-destruct,” Mr Patel said in a tweet. A candid admission of the Congress’s cluelessness was made by party spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi. “Surreal, what I read about Maharashtra. Thought it was fake news,” he said, within minutes of the announcement. He added that his personal view was that the tripartite negotiations should not have gone on for more than three days. Congress communication in-charge Randeep Surjewala called it a blatant betrayal of the mandate.
Comment Preview • The HP Omen X Desktop is for gamers on the edge 1 Review • HP’s PC gaming flagship turns PC gaming on its side The hardware in Metro Exodus’ menu system is practically life size on this monitor. Lori Grunin/CNET Gaming monitor manufacturers love to throw around the term “immersive” when referring to their products — the bigger and curvier it is, the louder the proclamations get. Well, no monitor to date can hold an immersive candle to the HP Omen X Emperium 65. It swallows you whole. I’m lucky it let me out long enough to get this written.It’s also $5,000 (about £3,830 or AU$7,000). So the most frequent question we get is “How is it better than a good 65-inch TV, which costs half as much?” The answer, at least for most people, is it’s not. But for a tiny subset of PC gamers, it’s more fun than a battle royale of monkeys.The Emperium was first announced at CES 2018 as part of Nvidia’s BFGD (Big Format Gaming Display) initiative, but HP is the only manufacturer from the group to have actually shipped a monitor. It feels like a Frankenstein’s monster of features: There’s a 65-inch Nvidia Shield smart HDR TV-slash-monitor that supports Nvidia’s G-Sync adaptive refresh technology and integrates Google Assistant. (So if you value your privacy, you may think of it as a personal-data-collecting portal of doom.) 22 Photos Mentioned Above HP Omen X CNET may get a commission from retail offers. HP Omen X News • HP Omen X 2S gaming laptop sports a second screen HP’s Omen X Emperium 65 and more gaming goodies come to CES 2019 See it Share your voice HP Nvidia $3,199 Gaming Accessories Monitors Tags Despite wanting to throw myself across it and plead with HP to let me keep it a while longer, it’s hard to recommend it as an actual purchase. Partly because pieces of it are bound to obsolesce within the next couple of years and partly because you’re probably better off spending less and putting the money you save into better-performing hardware and more games, at least until gaming figures out where it’s heading — the cloud, your phone, next-gen consoles or someplace as-yet unimagined.And she’ll have fun, fun, funConnected to a PC, the Emperium’s a jumbo-sized equivalent of a great 27-inch HDR (technically, HDR10) monitor like the Acer Predator X27, with similar specs but really, really big. I hooked the Emperium to a Falcon Northwest desktop equipped with an overclocked (to 4.9GHz) Intel Core i9-9900K and dual Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti cards. That’s pretty much the configuration you need to really appreciate all aspects of the Emperium simultaneously — the 4K, HDR and G-Sync.I didn’t see any artifacts, no matter what frame rate I threw at it, whether I went far beyond its native 120Hz (or 144Hz overclocked) or well below it — because 4K at ultra-everything including ray tracing still drops to unplayable frame rates. In this respect, it was one of the best G-Sync monitors I’ve used.While a 27-inch HDR monitor looks great, at 65 inches it really wows. The size alone ramps up Resident Evil 2 from scary-if-you-play-in-the-dark to leave-the-lights-on terrifying.Each game handles HDR differently. And because you’re looking at computer-generated graphics and not the real world depicted in movies, you don’t have the frame of reference to tell you whether a game’s colors look “correct” or the control you need to fine tune them. You just go with what appeals most and make sure the shadows aren’t so dark that you can find the object you’re looking for and won’t get ambushed by a mutant or a zombie. The otherworldly glowing reds and eye-searing brights in Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice lend it that extra touch of surreality, so who cares if her face paint probably isn’t the correct shade of blue?The on-screen display. (Aside: Dear Google, can you please suggest “try searching for ‘how to make Google stop suggesting things'” instead? Thanks!) Lori Grunin/CNET I didn’t run a full suite of tests in the short time I had with the monitor, just enough to confirm that it hits the most important marks. In HDR mode it covers 97 percent of the P3 D6500 color gamut — that’s close to one of the best OLED TVs we’ve tested, which hits 98.4 percent (95 percent in SDR). It’s got a typical black level of 0.009 nits (minimum is 0.001). So it’s not OLED-level black, but it’s visibly impressive. It seems to overshoot peak brightness to roughly 1,100 nits and then gradually decline, outputting over 1,000 nits in 5 percent, 10 percent and 25 percent windows.The VA-IPS panel has 384-zone local dimming with no edge bleed that I could spot. It has typical off-axis viewing for the technology, so all but the most oblique angles look good.The soundbar that comes with the Emperium is an aesthetically pleasing, well-built and aurally balanced 2.1 system that fits snugly under the display and can be controlled by the Shield remote. But it connects to the monitor with a surprisingly low-end analog cable. It does have a DSP input.Enlarge ImageOne nice design touch is the automatic lighting strip and illuminated labels. Lori Grunin/CNET There’s a solid selection of connections on the Emperium:Four USB-A (two on each side)One DisplayPort 1.4Three HDMI 2.0 (1 ARC)SPDIFGigabit Ethernet802.11ac Wi-FiBluetoothYou should be able to connect peripherals, such as external storage or wired keyboard and mice via the USB ports, to use with the Shield — that’s what the menus imply. But I couldn’t get it to recognize any USB devices. Even if that’s just a bug, you can’t use the ports as a hub the way you can on a desktop monitor because there’s no upstream USB connection from the PC to the display.Nor did the monitor like our 5GHz network — it kept saying that the signal was weak and refusing to connect, even after I moved the monitor into the same room as the router. A keyboard, mouse and controller all connected through Bluetooth, but the controller especially tended to be too laggy, even for simply navigating Steam.Not ready for the futureIf you take the monitor capabilities out of the equation, the Emperium’s just a pretty good, overpriced Shield TV with the same annoying remote. All non-PC gaming, whether you’re using a console via HDMI or cloud via GeForce Now (GFN), is limited to a 60Hz refresh rate and generally delivers the frame rate to match that, so you don’t need the refresh-rate versatility of the Emperium. Nor do you need a TV this high-end to play games over GFN. In fact, the broad tonal range of the display ends up emphasizing the artifacts — color contouring, desaturation and blockiness — of the compressed stream delivered by cloud-based games. GFN and the Google universe, including Android apps, Play games, streaming and video, adds value to the package, but you can get a box for $180 and attach it to a $2,500 OLED TV for the same capabilities. The sound bar should probably be optional.The Emperium offers fast refresh, but only connected to a PC with an Nvidia graphics card over DisplayPort. The HDMI connection is fixed at 60Hz for 4K. There’s a 1080p/120Hz option in the menu that I didn’t try, but HD on a 65-inch monitor has a pixel pitch you could drive a truck through (you sit much closer while gaming than you would just watching movies) and while it’s nice, it certainly isn’t worth five grand. 60Hz over HDMI is fine for now because console output is fixed there, too. But we’re expecting new consoles from Sony and Microsoft within the next couple of years, and you can bet they’ll have HDMI 2.1 connections to support variable or adaptive refresh technologies.So the Emperium won’t be able to take advantage of one of the most significant technology improvements to come to consoles in a while. And any gamer who’s going to plonk down this much for a monitor probably has a couple of consoles in addition to a power desktop, especially in the age of exclusives.It’s usually unwise to buy the first generation of anything — I’m looking at you, 5G and foldable phones — and while this is a good and polished one, the Emperium 65 is definitely a first-gen product.
gunfightA former ward councillor was killed in what police call a gunfight with their members at Magurunda village of Habiganj’s Chunarughat upazila early Monday, according to UNB.The deceased was identified as Yunus Miah, 40, former councillor of ward No. 9 in Chunarughat municipality.Chunarughat police station officer-in-charge Azmiruzzaman claimed that on secret information that a gang of drug traders was trading Yaba, a team of police conducted a drive in the area early in the morning.Sensing the presence of police, the drug traders attacked the law enforcers with sharp weapons, forcing them to retaliate that triggered the shootout, according to the police version.The gunbattle left Yunus bullet injured.However, no version of the incident was available immediately either from any witnesses or any member of the victim’s family.Later, the injured was rushed to Chunarughat Health Complex where physicians declared him dead.Police said that Yunus had long been involved with Yaba trading.
