Angels Notes: Byrd makes difference with hurricane relief

first_imgPaul Byrd never thought his home in Alpharetta, Ga., just outside of Atlanta, would become a Bed and Breakfast of sorts. Because of the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina, the Angels pitcher and his wife, Kym, have opened up their home to dozens of Kym’s relatives who live in the New Orleans area. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! More weather: Mother Nature could play a role in the outcome of the series. Rain is forecast for both tonight and Saturday, and rain delays or a rainout would affect how both managers use their pitching rotations. “The only thing, and I know Mike Scioscia feels the same way, you certainly don’t want to start a pitcher and have one of these on and off games where you’re going to wind up losing a starter,” Torre said. “That would be probably the worst scenario for our ballclub at this point in time if we had one of those rain-stop-rain situations.” Angels pitcher Bartolo Colon would pitch a Game 5 if there were no rainouts, but Scioscia admitted he’d consider pitching Colon in Game 4 if it were pushed to Sunday. Juggling the lineup: With the left-hander Johnson pitching tonight for the Yankees, Scioscia will put center fielder Steve Finley on the bench, move Chone Figgins to center and play Robb Quinlan at third base. … Wednesday’s Game 2 victory was the Angels’ first postseason win since winning Game 7 of the World Series in 2002. … Angels 1B Darin Erstad has hit safely in 20 of 21 career postseason games. center_img Byrd said it was the least he could do. He even considered leaving the team when one of Kym’s relatives was missing. Six days after the hurricane the missing relative was found safe and sound. “A lot of family has rotated in and out, and just recently some of them have gone back to see what happened to their homes,” said Byrd, who starts opposite Randy Johnson tonight in Game 3. “We’ve tried to bridge the gap financially for some people. It’s important to help out and alleviate some stress. It’s a very tough time emotionally for everybody.” last_img read more

This Plant Beats the Venus Flytrap for Speed

first_imgThe waterwheel plant, an aquatic species with a snap-trap faster than the Venus flytrap, is different enough to challenge evolutionary speculations.Most people have heard of or seen the Venus flytrap, one of nature’s most remarkable plants. In a split second, its leaves snap shut around any insect unlucky enough to touch its trigger hairs twice. But have you heard of the Waterwheel plant? Look at its picture in Science Daily reproduced from a press release at the University of Freiburg. Smaller than the Venus flytrap, with traps only 3mm in length, it boasts a much higher snapping action—ten times faster than the Venus flytrap. It was named the Waterwheel because its spokes stick out from the center with a trap on each end. From a water flea’s perspective, it should be called the Ferris Wheel from Hell.An article on the BBC News shows how the waterwheels are arranged along a stem, and says that the plants, though rare, are native to Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia. Being the only other known plant with snap traps, is it related to the Venus flytrap by evolution?Credit: Plant Biomechanics Group.The Venus flytrap (Dionaea muscipula) and the far less known aquatic waterwheel are the only carnivorous plants with snap traps. While intensive research on the Venus flytrap has been going on for a long time, the ten times faster underwater snap traps of the waterwheel have so far been little studied. The team led by the Freiburg biologists has now deciphered the underlying movement principle using experiments and computer simulations. The researchers found that the waterwheel snaps shut its trap, which is only three millimetres in size, by actively changing the internal pressure in the cells of the leaf, which leads to the midrib bending, and also by releasing internal prestress, which apparently results in an acceleration effect. The Venus flytrap, on the other hand, employs a hydraulic mechanism to change the curvature of its leaf halves which results in rapid trap closure. Although both plants share many similarities, the mechanics of the traps differ considerably. This finding may not only help understanding the development of snap traps from an evolutionary perspective, but also the adaptation to different habitats – in a terrestrial habitat with the Venus flytrap, under water with the waterwheel.The Waterwheel plant was the subject of two scientific papers this month. The first one, by Westermeier et al. in the Proceedings B of the Royal Society, reports on “How the carnivorous waterwheel plant (Aldrovanda vesiculosa) snaps.” The authors claim that their study of the mechanical trap of the Waterwheel plant “contributes to the question of how snap-traps may have evolved” but, since the paper is behind a paywall, we cannot analyze their arguments here. It appears from the press release, though, that there are significant differences between the two snap-trap species: differences in—Habitat, one terrestrial and one aquaticSize, one hand-size and the other made of trailing stemsGrowth habit, one upright and the other trailingMechanics, one employing hydraulics and the other internal pressure in the cellsSpeed, the Waterwheel being ten times fasterThere is no evidence the two plants are related. “It is thought that the waterwheel and the flytrap may share a common ancestor,” Mary Halton says in the BBC News article. “However there is no fossil evidence for what this ancestor might have looked like.”“This is one of the main questions in the carnivorous plant community,” says Dr Simon Poppinga, an author on the study.“Snap traps evolved only once in plants. There are two different mechanisms. Which one was first?“The second paper focuses on the design of the Waterwheel plant to come up with a biomimetics application: “Flectofold—a biomimetic compliant shading device for complex free form facades,” by Körner et al. in Smart Materials and Structures. Illustration from Curtis’s Venus flytrap, drawing from Botanical Magazine by William Curtis (1746–1799)Smart and adaptive outer façade shading systems are of high interest in modern architecture. For long lasting and reliable systems, the abandonment of hinges which often fail due to mechanical wear during repetitive use is of particular importance. Drawing inspiration from the hinge-less motion of the underwater snap-trap of the carnivorous waterwheel plant (Aldrovanda vesiculosa), the compliant façade shading device Flectofold was developed. Based on computational simulations of the biological role-model’s elastic and reversible motion, the actuation principle of the plant can be identified. The enclosed geometric motion principle is abstracted into a simplified curved-line folding geometry with distinct flexible hinge-zones. The kinematic behaviour is translated into a quantitative kinetic model, using finite element simulation which allows the detailed analyses of the influence of geometric parameters such as curved-fold line radius and various pneumatically driven actuation principles on the motion behaviour, stress concentrations within the hinge-zones, and actuation forces. The information regarding geometric relations and material gradients gained from those computational models are then used to develop novel material combinations for glass fibre reinforced plastics which enabled the fabrication of physical prototypes of the compliant façade shading device Flectofold.Readers may wish to score these two papers on their scientific value. The first one does produce original knowledge on the plant’s mechanics, but ends with a just-so story about evolution. The second paper yields a practical application that could improve our lives.Darwinian storytelling is so useless. Give it up, researchers! We don’t need an “evolutionary perspective” on everything. Give us the facts, and make something useful from what you learn to help your fellow human beings.(Visited 409 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Want to grow Africa’s economy? Include women

first_imgAfrica is rising and women will play a major part in its growth, say delegates at the International Women’s Forum South Africa conference. They called for women to be included in the continent’s mainstream economy. (Image: Brand South Africa)• International Women’s Forum South Africa+27 11 325 5295iwfsa@telkomsa.net• South African women on Forbes Africa tech list• Women taking SA forward• Foster builds a network of support• Towards gender equality• Women’s rights to advance Shamin ChibbaFive of the world’s estimated 20 female central bank governors come from southern African countries – Botswana, Lesotho, Seychelles, Madagascar and South Africa. This was according to Gill Marcus, governor of the South African Reserve Bank and a guest speaker at the International Women’s Forum South Africa (IWFSA) conference held in Johannesburg from 18 to 19 June.With “Africa Rising” as its theme, the conference brought together more than 200 women from business, government and civil society to examine women’s role in the continent’s economy and find ways to include them in the mainstream.The high number of African women in top central bank jobs, Marcus said, was in contrast to the first world, where only one woman heads a state bank. And Janet Yellen’s appointment as chairperson of the American Federal Reserve in February this year caused controversy in the US. “Leading newspapers in the United States discussed, quite seriously, what it would be like to have a ‘pink dollar’,” Marcus said.The only other leading woman in global economics, she said, is France’s Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund.But Marcus added that while this is an achievement for equality in southern Africa, it is how those five women make a difference in everyone’s lives that counts. Women essential to developmentLinah Mohohlo, governor of the Bank of Botswana, said including women in the mainstream economy so they can earn their own money is essential to African development.With 16 years at the helm of Botswana’s bank, Mohohlo is one of the world’s longest-serving reserve bank governors. She said women’s exclusion from the economy is not just a developing world problem but one also found in advanced nations. “Developed countries are experiencing joblessness, which brings concerns over social inequality.”Excluding women from economic activity was a waste of productive resources, she said. One way to include women is to narrow the gap between rich and poor. And technology, she said, was the one thing that could close that divide. “It was not long ago that we were concerned about the digital divide. Now technology is building bridges between those at the top and those at the bottom.” Southern African women are leading the charge in the continent’s economy, with five female central bank governors coming from the region, including governor of the South African Reserve Bank, Gill Marcus. (Image: Shamin Chibba) Africa is risingAs an emerging market economy, Marcus said, Africa is set to soar in the next three years. Before the financial crisis set off in 2008, emerging markets accounted for 25% of the world’s GDP and 17% of global public debt. She said that by 2017 emerging markets will contribute 40% of the world’s GDP and 16% of its debt. “Emerging markets contribute far more to growth in global GDP, whereas advanced economies add to global public debt. Emerging markets have helped sustain the global economy, yet when things get better they are dismissed by advanced economies, who basically say, ‘You are on your own.’”Marcus added that in South Africa, citizens are too critical of economic conditions. Public discourse was more focused on what was wrong in the country and not on its achievements, she said. Instead, we must reflect inward to see where the real problem lies. “South Africa has done phenomenally well in 20 years. So we need to tackle ourselves and see what is wrong with our attitude.” Infrastructure and womenThe impact of infrastructure development on women’s wellbeing was also discussed. Poor energy supply throughout Africa, for example, was a major cause of women’s health problems, Mohohlo said. The smoke from using firewood for energy, particularly indoors, caused illness and sometimes death. She said investment in appropriate energies would reduce the use of firewood and so improve the health of women.Water supply was also discussed as a serious health issue that impeded the development of African women. Pregs Govender, deputy chairperson of the South African Human Rights Commission, said that when it comes to water, African governments’ macroeconomic policies have done a disservice to marginalised people, particularly women and the poor.Govender said macroeconomic policies – which tackle the broader trends in an economy –were initially designed to reduce inequality and maintain economic balance in society. But they stopped being effective when they were no longer used for the benefit of the people.Human Rights Commission research on water use in South Africa found that these policies, instead, served corporates and ignored poor communities. Corporates pay less per kilolitre for water than households do. More worrying is business is generally the biggest polluter of water, but does not take responsibility for cleaning it up. “Our greatest thief of water is the corporate sector,” said Govender. “They waste water the most. Yet the image of water wastage is of a dripping tap in a poor community.”She added that women in Senegal spend more time sourcing and collecting water than on any other activity.last_img read more

Break even point and yield estimates

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest With little bullish old crop news, corn continues to trade a very tight range. There continues to be too much grain in bins and farmers using deferred pricing (DP) to push prices higher. End users seem to have good coverage on. No one knows when or if this will change.Bean prices rallied to recent highs with the U.S. dollar losing some value to the Brazilian Real, helping U.S. export potential. One issue, the early spring may push cattle to pasture sooner in the Southern states, which would mean feed demand reduction. Similar to corn, many think too many beans are still stored on farms, which may limit upside potential.Weather storyThis spring there has been a flower “super bloom” in the Death Valley desert. This phenomenon has happened twice in the last 30 years (1998 and 2005). In both years the corn crop yield was near normal. Also, corn prices peaked in March for 1998 and July for 2005 with both losing 80 cents in value from the high by December. Interestingly, comparing Great Lakes ice levels those years, 1998 had the third lowest on record and 2005 was the 13th lowest level of ice in the last 40 years. Will 2016 be similar?Market actionSensing beans may stay in the current trading range, I priced the remainder of my 2015 crop (8.98 against July futures). I’m disappointed I didn’t improve the price of my position after harvest when beans were about $9, but I’m happy I didn’t take much less either.This means my average futures price for my 2015 bean position is $10.79. I still have basis to set on these beans sometime in the near future.Break even points and yield estimatesI ran the break evens for a new client. Initially, we ran a profitability test based upon conservative estimated yield numbers for both corn and beans. The test showed, based upon these estimates, they would not be profitable planting beans and would only break even planting corn. Reviewing the numbers, my client said the yield estimates may have been too conservative. After rerunning the test with more “normal” yield results, it showed they could potentially have a profit for both corn and beans. And with the run up in beans earlier in the week, it was nearly even to plant corn versus beans.When farmers run budgets for the year, one bushel per acre yield changes on soybeans can mean nearly a $10 per acre difference in income more or less, depending on the average bushels per acre and the price on the CBOT.For instance, if a farmer raises 45 bushel per acre beans, changing the estimated yield by 1 bushel changes their break even by 20 cents per bushel. So, if the estimate is too conservative (say 5 bushels), break evens can be $1per bushel off. Similar with corn, a 5 bushel per acre difference accounts for nearly $20 per acre in income. Based upon the 165-bushel per acre national average this could change the breakeven price by 12 cents.Many farmers do not take the time to find out what their break evens are. With tight margins facing farmers this year it is imperative that farmers understand these numbers. All farmers have their past performance to start building a budget. After going through the process, you may be surprised to learn your breakeven point isn’t as high as you expected.Jon grew up raising corn and soybeans on a farm near Beatrice, NE. Upon graduation from The University of Nebraska in Lincoln, he became a grain merchandiser and has been trading corn, soybeans and other grains for the last 18 years, building relationships with end-users in the process. After successfully marketing his father’s grain and getting his MBA, 10 years ago he started helping farmer clients market their grain based upon his principals of farmer education, reducing risk, understanding storage potential and using basis strategy to maximize individual farm operation profits. A big believer in farmer education of futures trading, Jon writes a weekly commentary to farmers interested in learning more and growing their farm operations.Trading of futures, options, swaps and other derivatives is risky and is not suitable for all persons.

Glowing Results: Grading Skin Tones in DaVinci Resolve

first_imgWe’re going to use DaVinci Resolve to get balanced, glowing skin tones in just a few easy steps — without affecting your other edits.First, you need to isolate the skin with a selection so you can work with it without affecting the rest of the image. Then, you can even out the skin, unifying the tone so it’s a universal color, without making the person look like they’re wearing too much foundation. Next, decrease the mid-tone density so that small imperfections disappear. Finally, add a layer mixer node so that the skin color you’ve just worked on is protected from other grades you might make. Let’s look at them in turn. Make a MaskIn a new node, select the qualifying tool, and drag it across the most even and representative part of the face. You’ll need to use the + brush to increase it, as well as the + feather tool. I’ve also found that increasing the clean white helps a lot.Unify ToneOnce you have the skin isolated, increase the contrast and look for yellow, red, or green areas that don’t fit with the overall skin tone. In the Curves menu, select Hue vs. Hue, then select those colors using the curve up or down to shift the problem colors back to the central color.Once you’ve done this, you can change the overall color with offset, or temperature/hue to get the look you want.Color Contrast.Pairing ImperfectionsIn the color tab, there’s a slider marked MD for Midtone Density. Turning this down gets rid of contrast in the skin, effectively hiding imperfections. You can also turn it up for a grittier, more weathered look. You may want to also increase sharpness so the face retains a natural look, rather than looking defocused.SeparateThe last step is to add another node, then hit Option+L to turn this into a layer mixer node. Dragging the blue alpha arrow of the skin mask to the input on the lower of the two mixed nodes means that your skin grade will “pass around” anything done in the latter nodes. This lets you cool down the background — or desaturate it — without also affecting the skin.Interested in the songs we used to make this video?“Sky and City” by Remember The Future“Opulence” by Julian Bell“Murmurs” by Biba Dupont“Tape” by Simba Music“Chilling Groove” by Ulas PakkanWant more on working with DaVinci Resolve?

Gujarat Dalit activist, who set himself ablaze, succumbs to burn injuries

first_imgDalit activist Bhanu Vankar, who attempted self-immolation in Gujarat on February 15, succumbed to severe burn injuries late on February 16. Mr. Vankar has sustained 80% burn injuries and was admitted in Ahmedabad’s Apollo Hospital, where he died. To protest the Patan district administration’s failure to regularise a piece of land he was allotted a few years ago, he set himself on fire in the Collector Office in North Gujarat. Despite repeated visits to the district administration officials, his case did not move, which apparently distressed him to take an extreme step of ending his life. His suicide is likely to trigger Statewide protests by the Dalit community and organisations working for the rights of Dalits and other marginalised sections in the State. “We have lost him. We hold the district administration responsible for his death. He was forced,” a relative said. Earlier in the day, Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani ordered inquiry into the incident. “I have asked Chief Secretary to get all details of the incident after an inquiry,” Mr. Rupani said, adding, “the State government will also bear all medical expenses of Mr. Vankar, who is presently under treatment in Apollo hospital in Ahmedabad.”Moreover, nine other Dalit men were detained by the police after they also tried to storm into the premises of the collectorate with the intention to commit suicide, and were later released. “As many as nine people were detained briefly after they tried to storm into the office of the collector with the intention to commit suicide. They had expressed their intention to the Collector on a previous date and police were deployed in large numbers to prevent any such attempt,” a police official from Patan said. “However, Banubhai Vankar from Unjha village managed to enter the Collector Office premises by jumping over the barricade and set himself on fire. He has been shifted to a hospital in Ahmedabad,” the official had said.The incident triggered a huge backlash among the Dalit community in the State. A leading organisation Rashtriya Dalit Adhikar Manch, fighting for the rights of Dalits, gave a call for Patan bandh on February 16 to protest against the “administrative negligence” in the transfer of land to Dalits, “which forced a group to attempt suicide”. The bandh evoked mixed response in the North Gujarat town.A prominent activist and Independent MLA Jignesh Mevani, who is also the convener of the Rashtriya Dalit Adhikar Manch, in a statement said it was a “matter of shame” for the BJP government that Dalits had to resort to extreme steps to fight for their rights in Gujarat.Mr. Mevani demanded suspension of the Collector and Superintendent of Police holding them responsible for driving the community members to take extreme steps to press for their rights.last_img read more
