SHARE By Andy Eubank – Sep 10, 2014 Wise on SDSSudden Death Syndrome is popping up in Indiana soybean fields and a Purdue specialist says all you can do about it now is confirm SDS exists and then prepare accordingly for next year. Kiersten Wise says the signs from the windshield will be patches of orange and yellow, some dieback and defoliation, and the prevalence of the disease stems from the wet Hoosier spring.“We are seeing a lot of this disease and it all goes back to spring,” she explained. “What we’re seeing is now are the symptoms of something that occurred very early in the growing season. SDS is caused by a soil-borne fungus that affects those roots in the early vegetative stages, so when we’re planting into cool, wet soils, those wet conditions are great conditions for this fungus to take hold and infect soybeans.”At Purdue’s Agronomy Day at the ACRE last week she said it’s important to scout the fields and confirm which ones have SDS.“This is a hard part in the season to know because soybeans are starting to naturally change anyway. You’re going to get those pockets of yellow. You’re going to see some top die-back. So what you want to do is go out to those patches and if you’re seeing this type of symptom go down and split that lower stem open. If you see that grayish, brownish discoloration in the lower stem but the pith remains white or clear, that’s going to be an indication that you have SDS.Wise says the best way to manage SDS is to plant a soybean variety with better resistance.“You gotta know what you have first before you can actually select that variety. So, know what fields have the disease. Sit down with your seed dealer and select a variety that has greater resistance the next time the field goes into soybeans.Wise says none of the available soybean seed treatments have efficacy at controlling the fungus that leads to SDS, but company pipelines might bring forth solutions by 2016.

In a recent baseball game, 3 Oakland Athletic rookies hit a home run in their first-ever major league game. To show how rare this is, you have to go back to April of 1914 to find when it had been done before.The 3 rookies who accomplished this feat for the A’s were Matt Olson, Jaycob Brugman, and Franklin Barreto. This led the A’s to a 10-2 win. Oakland has traded almost all of their older players to contending teams in the last month. Nice to see these young players get a chance.

Jorge Barrera APTN National NewsThe Vancouver police is trying to identify a group of masked warriors who dumped dirt inside the constituency office of Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould over her refusal to call a public inquiry into the 1995 Gustafson Lake armed standoff.A spokesperson for the Vancouver police said an investigation is currently ongoing into the March 3 incident, but detectives have yet to identify the warriors who executed the protest.“It is unknown at this time which group was responsible and there have been no arrests made in this case,” said police spokesperson Randy Fincham, in an emailed statement. “Our investigation is ongoing and there is no further information to share at this time.”The group of four warriors entered Wilson-Raybould’s constituency office in Vancouver at about 2 p.m. and “poured dirt on the counter and floor,” said Fincham.An official with Wilson-Raybould’s office in Ottawa told APTN National News that the Vancouver office contacted the police after the incident. The official said the constituency office is currently closed for “cleaning.”Christine Chan, manager of operations for Wilson-Raybould’s Vancouver office, refused to provide a statement on the incident.“We decline to comment,” said Chan, in an email.A video of the incident was posted online by subMedia.tv, an online multimedia “collaboration” which produces “anarchist films” and “radical videos.”The video shows the four warriors, carrying a bullhorn, drum and bags of soil, walk into Wilson-Raybould’s constituency office.An official from Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould’s office tries to unmask a warrior during March 3 protest. Still image from subMedia.tv video.A warrior with the bullhorn then says they have a “special delivery” for Wilson-Raybould.“Two months after Wolverine has called for the Gustafson Lake inquiry,” said the warrior. “This is a delivery from the warriors….This is our message: Our land is not for sale.”The warrior also refers to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who was in Vancouver that week for climate change talks with provincial and territorial premiers along with Indigenous leaders.At one point, a man, who appears to work for Wilson-Raybould’s constituency office, tries to unmask the warriors, but is forced out onto the sidewalk.Wilson-Raybould was confronted about the issue earlier this year when the minister said she wanted to first focus on the inquiry into murdered and missing Indigenous women. Wilson-Rabyould is one of three cabinet ministers laying the groundwork for that inquiry which is expected to get underway by this summer.Ailing Secwepemc Elder William “Wolverine” Jones Ignace wrote Trudeau and Wilson-Raybould earlier this year requesting a public inquiry into the Gustafsen Lake standoff.The standoff centred on land leased by the province to a rancher near 100 Mile House, B.C., that was used for Sundance ceremonies. The land, which was never surrendered, was reclaimed by the Ts’Peten Defenders in 1995 who refused to leave despite attempts by the rancher to evict them.The standoff saw the RCMP, backed by the Canadian Forces, and warriors exchange tens of thousands of rounds of gunfire, more than during the 1990 Oka crisis. The RCMP also used an IED against a warrior in a pickup truck.Two RCMP officers visited Wolverine on Feb. 26 following protests against a modern day treaty vote by four Secwepemc communities that are part of the Northern Secwepemc te Qelmucw tribal council.RCMP Sgt. Frank Paul stated the reason for his visit was to discuss a letter Wolverine sent to the Mounties alleging officers were violating Secwepemc sovereignty by intervening in protests against the modern day treaty, according to a statement released on Feb. 27 by the Ts’Peten Defenders.The Ts’Peten Defenders sent a statement to APTN saying they had also seen the video of the warriors dumping dirt at Wilson-Raybould’s office, but provided no further comment. The video was posted on the Defenders’ Facebook [email protected]@JorgeBarrera
“An average isn’t something we see very often. It’s usually above or below and it doesn’t usually land on the average very often. But interestingly enough, a lot of the province did this month.”Looking ahead to August and the remainder of the summer season, Lindquist says we can expect to see slightly cooler temperatures but with lower amounts of rain.As a side note, for the holiday long weekend, Environment Canada is calling for sun and temperatures in the low to mid-20s for Saturday and into Monday. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – During the month of July, Fort St. John and the surrounding area saw close to normal averages when it came to the weather.According to Environment Canada Meteorologist, Doug Lindquist, Fort St. John saw the temperature and rain levels around normal for July with the temperature at 15.8°C, four points below the average of 16.2. As for rain amounts, the area saw 65 mm, which is 10 mm below the average for July.Lindquist says it’s not often that July’s weather sits around the average, adding that the majority of British Columbia saw close to the monthly average.
FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Thanks to a donation by John and Marilynne Herron, these funds helped to complete the new Salon space in Peace Villa for residents to get their hair done.The Salon was in need of an upgrade and a change in design as the amount of need on the salon by residents has increased over the past 5 years. The Salon, run by volunteers, was hard to navigate and the shampoo sink was not set at a height that made it easy for the senior clients to use.Salon days are set for Thursdays running from 8:30 am to Noon, giving residents the opportunity to receive a free service including shampoo, cut and style as well as benefiting from this special time to feel pampered, cared for and the opportunity for social connection, shared Niki Hedges, Executive Director for the Fort St. John Hospital Foundation. “The original space for the Salon was set up in the Callahan Room where the washing sink was challenging and some residents were not able to access this sink comfortably due to the height and its location. In order to care for the number of residents, it was important to install haircutting stations and sinks for all needs,” said HedgesThe Herron’s shared they are honoured to have been able to help with this special and important project.Jill Copes, a Volunteer for three years at the Salon comes in from Cecil Lake to help at the Salon every Thursday in Peace Villa. Copes said, “I was so happy to be asked to volunteer doing hair at Peace Villa as I enjoy coming to spend time with the ladies. Each one is special and they really appreciate some pampering”Copes shares, she knew how important this is to the residents in care as her mum got her hair done every week and knows how it was so special and important to her well being.It has a new and bright feel to create a space that provides a sense of wellbeing, a space to be cared for, to socialize and to have a connection, shared Hedges.
Banda (UP): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday promised to work “in mission mode” to rid Bundelhand of its water scarcity, while also claiming that the opposition will be reduced to ‘zero battey sannata’ in the Lok Sabha polls.”Opposition leaders are going with long faces after half of the polling is over as they know the outcome,” he said at a public meeting here in Bundelkhand region of Uttar Pradesh. “The opposition will get ‘zero battey sannata’,” he added, playing on the name of a Hindi movie, ‘Nil Battey Sannata’, which means zero divided by zero – a slang for nothing. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’Stating that he understands well the problem of acute water scarcity in the region, which is also responsible for its backwardness, the prime minister said it will be handled “in mission mode”. “I feel the struggle for water faced by my sisters. This challenge also has been accepted by your chowkidar,” said Modi. He promised to start work to provide water to the parched region “in mission mode” within a month after the announcement of the election result, if they return “the Modi government” to the power again. He said he would get women rid of water scarcity just like he freed them from smoke by providing LPG connections and the personal humiliation by providing toilets.

If voted to power, his next government would make an all out effort to ensure that water reaches people though all available means just like, he said, his government provided electricity to all villages in the last five years. Accusing the previous governments of “doing selfish politics”, the prime minister rued that even the Congress government supported by the SP and BSP kept hundreds of irrigation projects pending. “We have taken up 99 such big projects and most of them are on the verge of completion,” he said, while also referring to his government’s various other work like the Bundelkhand Expressway and the defence corridor projects impacting the region. Jibing at the Opposition, he said all the leaders in the poll fray, despite fielding a small numbwer of candidates are dreaming of becoming prime minister. He said the SP-BSP and the Congress have not told people about any of their schemes for ending terrorism and appear to be afraid of talking about the terrorism. Later in the evening before filing his nomination from Varanasi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also held a mega roadshow in the temple town as thousands lined the streets to take a glimpse of their star candidate. The PM later tweeted that he was “grateful for the warmth and affection” shown by the people of Kashi. As chants of ‘Modi, Modi’ rent the air, the PM’s cavalcade traversed through Assi Ghat, Bhadaini, Sonarpura, Madanpura, Jangambadi, Godowlia before concluding at the Dashashwamedh Ghat, where he performed the evening aarti. Modi began the roadshow by garlanding the statue of Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya outside the Banaras Hindu University. He was accompanied by BJP chief Amit Shah, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and other top alliance leaders.
OSU redshirt junior guard Billy Price celebrates with coach Urban Meyer after the 2014 national championship victory.Credit: Lantern File PhotoThe last time Ohio State and coach Urban Meyer had three starters to replace on the offensive line, the 2014 Buckeyes experienced excruciating growing pains.Redshirt junior Billy Price was one of those linemates who struggled early on.In his first game against Navy in 2014, Price was taken aback by the speed of the game, which is something he struggled with early in his redshirt freshman season.Price said he vividly remembered when OSU surrendered six sacks in the fourth quarter in an early season loss to Virginia Tech. Lessons from those first two games are being passed on to the new group of “Slobs” in 2016.“One of the biggest things when I played Virginia Tech is things start flying so fast, and if you can’t get control of the chaos and situation early, one thing leads to another,” Price said. “I’ve been there, and the biggest thing is stay calm.”None of the national champion offensive line members improved more from game one to game 15 than Price. He earned a second-team freshman All-America honors in 2014. To follow that up, he started all 13 games last season at right guard rather than left guard, being named third-team all-Big Ten.At season’s end, Price still saw plenty of room for improvement.Offensive line coach Greg Studrawa has been working with Price since the spring on pass-blocking technique and playing to the offensive scheme. The third-year starter from Austintown-Fitch High School in Ohio, said that one subtle change in his technique has made the world of difference and has made him a more confident player.Already listed at 6-foot-4, 315 pounds, Price said that it’s nice at times for him to rely on his strength against tough opponents.On Sunday, the team took a vote on who should join captains along with redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett, junior linebacker Raekwon McMillan and redshirt senior center Pat Elflein as the face of the program. The rest of the Buckeyes made it clear that they believe they can rely on Price’s strength and leadership.Price who was one of four players selected as a team captain to represent the Scarlet and Gray.“Huge honor,” Price said. “You’re a part of a legacy here at Ohio State to be a captain. There are very few captains and to be a part of that is just an honor.”Price has started 28 games for OSU in his career.He and Elflein are the only two members remaining from an offensive line that led the way for 264.4 rushing yards per game in 2014 and 245.2 per game in 2015. Those two will be counted on by Meyer and staff to lead a young batch of Buckeyes back to being the brawn of the offense.Though Price is a poster boy for the Buckeyes, he said that there shouldn’t be any doubt who is the true leader of the offensive line.“First and foremost, this is Pat (Elflein)’s offensive line,” Price said. “I don’t want there to ever be a question about that.”True freshman Michael Jordan will likely be stepping into Price’s role from 2014 as a first-year eligible starter on the offensive line. Price has spoken to Jordan on multiple occasions, telling him to take care of school and control the speed of the game. While Elflein was recovering from minor shoulder surgery, he counted on his right-hand man to mentor Jordan and other freshmen inside the unit and develop a camaraderie that was present on the 2014 offense.“I haven’t been in here all summer, so he has kind of taken that role when I’m not in there,” Elflein said. “There’s not a problem having two leaders on the offensive line.”
