By Gary Truitt – Oct 8, 2015 Soybean growers seeking flexible, effective broadleaf weed control have another option to add to their toolboxes. DuPont™ Canopy® Blend herbicide has received approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in time for use during the 2016 crop season.Canopy® Blend combines two modes of action for effective burndown and residual control of difficult weeds before or at soybean planting. Effective in no-till and minimum-till production systems, Canopy® Blend helps manage weeds that would compete with emerging soybean plants for better early stand development.Formulated with proprietary DuPont extrusion/blending technology, Canopy® Blend is a dry, flowable, dispersible granular herbicide that is easy to measure and pour, mix and store. It is available in a new 100-ounce (6.25-pound) jug.Growers and applicators familiar with DuPont™ Canopy® herbicide should review the Canopy® Blend label for application rates and recrop intervals, since application details for the two products are not identical.“The innovative Canopy® Blend formulation meets grower needs for effective control of challenging weeds, including glyphosate-tolerant Palmer pigweed and marestail, while helping to avoid further resistance development,” said James Hay, business director, North America, DuPont Crop Protection. “And the easy-to-use formulation will save growers, retailers and applicators time and trouble as they address multiple crop production needs during the busy spring season. It’s another tool that will help achieve our combined goal of increasing production to feed the growing world population.”This is the latest advancement from DuPont Crop Protection. “Canopy® Blend joins recently introduced DuPont™ Afforia™ and Trivence™ herbicides to give U.S. soybean growers even more options to address changing weed-control needs on their farms,” added Hay. DuPont has been recognized with 19 Agrow Awards, including the Best R&D Pipeline Award in 2013 and 2014.Canopy® Blend herbicide is included in the TruChoice® rewards program, which helps growers partner seed and crop protection products for the greatest agronomic and economic advantage.DuPont (NYSE: DD) has been bringing world-class science and engineering to the global marketplace in the form of innovative products, materials and services since 1802.

Tuesday evening, Fr. Pete McCormick celebrated Mass in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart. The Mass was held in celebration and gratitude for those who work in Building Services at Notre Dame and was co-sponsored by the Senior Class Council, Campus Ministry and the student government department of faith and service. Senior Emily McAuliffe, co-chair of the Senior Class Council faith and service committee, said that the Senior Class Council was moved to put on the event after reading a letter to the editor lamenting the death of 57-year-old Michael Amadek, a Notre Dame custodian who died in the driver’s seat of his car in the library parking lot on Thursday, Sept. 20, after reporting that he felt unwell.“After the death of Michael, we felt that we should recognize this part of the community who is usually not given the full recognition that they deserve,” McAuliffe said. “We thought a Mass would be a good way to show our gratitude and thank those members of Building Services and also remember Michael.”Senior Bridget Moroney, the other co-chair of the Senior Class Council faith and service committee, credited the letter to the editor with bringing to light issues pertaining to the inclusion of Building Services within the Notre Dame community.“[The letter to the editor in] The Observer … made a really good point about [being] much more cognizant of who we’re considering a part of the Notre Dame family,” Moroney said. “We [the Senior Class Council] want to make it known to everyone at Notre Dame that people that work in Building Services are absolutely a part of the family and that they need to be celebrated just as much as any student is.”Moroney also credited sophomore Aaron Benavides, student government director of faith and service, with generating the idea. “Aaron had been talking with Campus Ministry about wanting to do something. … We talked with him after one our executive chairs sent us The Observer article, and then it came together with Campus Ministry, student government and Senior Class Council,” Moroney said. McCormick, who serves as director of Campus Ministry and presided over the mass, began his three-minute homily by reflecting on the day’s readings from scripture. He stated that all individuals should be treated with dignity, and urged those in attendance to consider how they were acting in their daily lives.“We should be far more concerned with is how it is that we are living in this present moment — in this time and place,” McCormick said. “The Gospels are clear — do unto others as you would have them do unto you. It’s a simple rule for us; treat others with the dignity that they have been given unto them by God. Keep the simple things the focus and allow that to transform you.”McCormick continued to praise the work that custodial workers do and draw attention to the lack of recognition given to them for their day-to-day work.“We recognize … today, a moment where we celebrate our custodial workers on campus — people who by-and-large serve faithfully and do so in a way that does not draw attention to themselves,” McCormick said. “The only time we really pay attention is when things are out of place and, let’s be perfectly honest, how often is that, in fact, the case? We look around the beauty of this Basilica; we don’t see the hard-working men and women who come in here to tend to this space and this place on a daily basis. We just assume it to be this way.”McCormick challenged those attending the Mass to reflect upon the way that different classes of workers are regarded, and to act upon the notion that all men and women share a common human dignity.“It goes back to this understanding: what would our world look like if we treated each and every person with the dignity that they deserve — if we didn’t get caught up in the uniform and title that they had, but instead recognized that which is common amongst us all? And that is the inherent dignity God has given us,” McCormick said. “Because, while I cannot fully stand here and confess to understand the vastness of what God has in store, I can guarantee to us that each person will be adorned with the ring of affection that our loving God has for them. So, why not begin to look upon this world, and act upon that very reality?”Tags: building services, Campus Ministry, faith and service committee, Mass, senior class council, Student government

-High school students at home. High schools would be used to provide extra space so that elementary, middle and adult schools could have room for social distancing. In addition, high schoolers would continue virtual learning.-In-person school limited to high-needs students. Students with disabilities, limited English skills, struggling readers in early elementary grades and those taking career and vocational programs would attend school in person. Additionally, distance learning would continue for others.-Limited enrollment. Schools would serve the same students but limit enrollment on the physical campus. Distance learning would continue for others.“The initial feedback suggests a preference for staggered days, with each school having some implementation flexibility,” a draft report says.Another factor that is expected to limit enrollment is parental choice.A recent school district survey of 72,000 Broward families found that 36 percent want students to continue distance learning full-time. On the other hand, 25 percent prefer a full reopening of in-person learning, while another 33 percent want a hybrid of on-campus and at-home learning. The remaining six percent of respondents are unsure. Broward students may have the option to attend school just two days a week this fall.The Broward School District has developed a plan of school reopening scenarios, which the School Board plans to discuss this Tuesday.Meanwhile, the Palm Beach County School Board planned to unveil its plans or options at a workshop Wednesday afternoon.According to The South Florida Sun Sentinel, the Broward proposals include:-Continued distance learning. Under this scenario, students would remain online-only in the fall.-Staggered times. Half of the students would attend in the morning and the other half in the afternoon four days a week. The fifth day would be used for cleaning and disinfecting the campus.-Staggered days. Half of the students would go to classrooms two days a week, possibly Monday and Tuesday, and the other half on Thursday and Friday, with Wednesday being a cleaning day.2020/21 school year calendar – color, black and white, and accessible versions – available at https://t.co/bcu5yhf0il.

JOHN SADLER, HARD ACES, WINNER: “We got a good trip. We were hoping the pace would be there; we saw 45 and change, it looked like there was a lot of speed, but it’s got to come together. Victor did a beautiful job with him. He’s ridden him a few times and he’s not an easy horse to ride. He’s a very difficult horse to ride, so Victor’s gone forward with him for two or three races. He was a good fourth in the Big Cap . . . then he came back with a good third here and put it all together in the big one today.“We thought the last race was key. He really stepped forward with a strong race right at the end of a mile and eighth and he got some more pace today . . . Pacific Classic (will be next, $1 million, Grade I, three-year-olds and up, 1 ¼ miles, Aug. 22). He’ll stay home and run right in our own back yard at Del Mar.”Regarding the Breeders’ Cup Classic: “This is a Win and You’re In, so right now we have two horses qualified (Talco in the Mile), so we’re going to enjoy these races and kind of move forward.“We won the (Grade I) Shoemaker (June 13), the Summertime Oaks last weekend (June 20)and now the Gold Cup, so it’s an unbelievable run we’ve had. It’s been a lot of fun.” PART OWNER KOSTA HRONIS: “We didn’t leave the gate very well and just got really far behind, a little too far behind, I thought. But we had good splits which he needs and it all worked out. John’s done a great job with him.” GARY STEVENS, CATCH A FLIGHT, THIRD: “He ran a super race, he’s as honest as any horse can get. I’m disappointed we didn’t win but he runs his race every time and he tries hard, it’s all you can ask. No real excuses, he had a good trip . . . the jock might have moved a little early but other than that . . . ” JOCKEY QUOTES VICTOR ESPINOZA, HARD ACES, WINNER: “I think by the half mile pole I was committed. I already lost ground at the start from being bumped a little by Batti Man; he took me out of the race a little. I decided not to encourage him early and save ground. I thought my best shot was to save ground and get through on the inside and it worked out well.“He’s improving. Every race, he’s getting better and better. When he was back east he wasn’t quite there but in his last race he ran good and today he ran great.” -30- TRAINER QUOTES NOTES: NOTES: Winning owners Kosta and Peter Hronis are from Delano, CA. Today’s on-track attendance was 21,528.
