The new track, “Hurry On Home”, arrived along with an iPhone-stylized lyric video directed by Miranda July. The track begins with a gospel vocal swell before dropping into the band’s characteristically emotive gritty rock drive. St. Vincent’s surreal sonics are also apparent throughout the song, providing the first peek at the fruits of this high-powered collaboration.

Annie Clark) has finally arrived.
Over the past decade, Americans have fallen in love with locally grown produce, but just because something is grown nearby doesn’t automatically make it safe.Small and beginning farmers, who put a lot of their energy into producing quality vegetables, might not have the education or experience to know how to keep their produce as safe as possible. That’s why University of Georgia Cooperative Extension is partnering with local food advocates and farmers across the state to offer produce safety training.The training helps farmers ensure that they’re providing their customers the safest produce possible and helps them meet new food safety regulations without the added expense of consultants or private trainers.“People just don’t think about some of the issues,” said Judy Harrison, professor and Extension food safety specialist in the UGA College of Family and Consumer Sciences. “But we know there can be food safety issues with locally grown food just like there can be problems with food that is shipped here from other places if the food is handled improperly.”Harrison has developed training materials for small farms and farmers market managers to enhance food safety at farmers markets. Harrison — along with UGA Extension personnel and educators with the Georgia Department of Agriculture, Georgia Organics, the Georgia Fruit and Vegetables Growers Association, and the National Farmers Coalition — have conducted Produce Safety Alliance grower training across the state that meets requirements for growers under the Food Safety Modernization Act.Some basic practices covered in the training include following National Organic Program guidelines for appropriate waiting periods between raw manure application and harvesting, water testing, proper composting of manure, keeping animals out of growing areas, using potable water to wash produce after harvest, and keeping produce cool after harvest.Harrison and her partners hosted the training for groups of up to 50 farmers at community centers and UGA Extension county offices across Georgia. At UGA, food scientists Mark Harrison and Laurel Dunn have shared training responsibilities with Judy Harrison. Dunn will lead the program after Judy Harrison retires later this year.So far more than 900 farmers have gone through the low-cost training programs, allowing them to enhance the safety on their farms and to comply with U.S. Food and Drug Administration produce safety regulations.Produce safety trainings have three goals: to keep consumers safe and healthy; to help Georgia’s farmers stay compliant with food safety regulations to market safe food; and to help protect the health of Georgia’s burgeoning local food industry.“Food safety is just good marketing,” said Judy Harrison. “Even if your product is not involved in an outbreak, your sales still can be affected. … It only takes one scare to ruin the market.”While consumers may associate food safety issues with dairy or meat products, fresh vegetables are often the culprit. Between 1998 and 2008, about 46% of foodborne illness in the U.S. was caused by fresh produce. The more people opt for fresh, unprocessed produce, the greater the risk of illness when that produce is not handled correctly, said Judy Harrison.To help curb these numbers, the U.S. Congress passed the Food Safety Modernization Act, which updated food safety regulations across several industries, including production agriculture and, for the first time, created nationwide standards for growing, harvesting and handling produce. Under the law, farms may be required to have at least one manager on site who has undergone produce safety training certified by the Association of Food and Drug Officials. If farms are selling small amounts of fresh produce and other foods, and if they are selling it directly to consumers through farmers markets, they may be exempt from the rule. However, even these farms should have some food safety training to keep their customers safe.Celia Barss, owner of Woodland Gardens, a small organic farm in Winterville, participated in one of the UGA trainings. “The information was really great,” said Barss. “The class made it feel less overwhelming. Sometimes the regulations you have to meet feel insurmountable, so we are now doing our best to implement what we can on our farm.”A 12-acre organic farm certified by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Woodland Gardens is just one type of operation that UGA Extension’s produce safety training programs were designed to help. There are about 20,000 farms in Georgia that involve less than 50 acres, according to the 2017 USDA census of agriculture. Large-scale produce farming operations can also benefit.“We have seen examples across the nation of foodborne illness outbreaks from produce causing not just illnesses, but deaths. And we’ve seen farmers lose their businesses. No one wants either of those outcomes to happen from Georgia produce. Our goal in UGA Extension is to help keep Georgia farms in business and help keep consumers safe,” said Judy Harrison.In Georgia, the 2017 farm gate value was $1.15 billion for vegetables and $704.8 million for fruits and nuts, according to the UGA Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development.
KARACHI: Left-arm pacer Junaid Khan feels Pakistan bowlers are likely to struggle more due to the saliva ban than their English counterparts when the two teams lock horns in a series involving three Tests and as many T20Is in August.Junaid, who isn’t part of the 29-member Pakistan squad, stated England bowlers’ reliance on reverse swing is less in comparison to the Pakistan pacers and that is why the visitors will struggle a bit more. “Both sides will have difficulty if there is no reverse swing on offer due to the saliva ban. However, our bowlers are likely to struggle more. (James) Anderson bowls well with the new ball and his reverse swing is not that good. Similarly, (Stuart) Broad and (Jofra) Archer’s reverse swing is not as effective as our bowlers,” Junaid was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan. “Even though Abbas bowls at 125 KPH, he has done well with reverse swing in Asia. Shaheen’s reverse swing may not be as good as Abbas, but it is still alright. “The four Test matches that Naseem has played, he has taken most wickets with reverse swing. Our pacers, particularly the likes of Shaheen, Naseem and Musa will have a difficult time as they do not have the experience of playing in England and are not used to the conditions there.” The first Test between England and Pakistan will be played at the Old Trafford starting August 5 followed by the last two Tests at the Ageas Bowl, which start on August 13 and August 21 respectively.

Baltimore Ravens outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil (58) sacks Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (7) in spite of the blocking by tackle Marcus Gilbert (77) during the second half of an NFL football game Thursday, Sept. 11, 2014, in Baltimore. (AP Photo/Nick Wass)The Pittsburgh Steelers find themselves at 1-1 but could easily be 0-2 with the way they’ve played the last six quarters. The challenge doesn’t get any easier as they now face the 2-0 Carolina Panthers, in Charlotte on Sunday Night Football.The Panthers are a very good team on both sides of the ball and while this game isn’t a ‘must win’ situation for the black and gold, they desperately want to avoid a 1-2 start and falling further behind the division leading Bengals who look poised to advance to 3-0.Here are the Keys to A Steelers Victory:1. The defense needs to create a turnover. Through two games they have yet to do so, looking the mediocre Steelers of the past two seasons. They must create turnovers to help the offense with field position.2. The offense needs to control the clock. They’ve scored nine points in the last six quarters, something has to give. They need to find a balanced attack and move the ball effectively. When they get into the red zone, they need to put the ball into the end zone and not have to settle for field goals.3. LeVeon Bell needs to gain 100 yards rushing. Not just for the purposes of controlling the clock but because if he can get a good amount of yards on the ground, it will set up the play action for Big Ben. Bell has been running the ball really hard through the first two weeks and has looked great doing so but they need to feed him the ball 20 times or so, so he can get the necessary yardage on the ground.4. The offense can’t turn the ball over. Sure, it’s obvious, but it’s just true. Last week on the opening drive the team was moving the ball and then Justin Brown fumbled it deep in Raven territory. That turnover changed the entire complexion of the game. They need to play a complete game and not give the ball to the Panthers for free.Here are a Few Things to Watch:1. Cody Wallace-Wallace appears as if he’ll get the nod at guard in place of the injured Ramon Foster. Wallace is a serviceable linemen, capable of playing ever position, he should fill in nicely.2. Lawrence Timmons-Timmons has missed more tackles in the first two games than he did all of last season. Timmons is usually the leading and best tackler on the team and is the most impactful player on the defense. Timmons must get back to form and I expect he will.3. Heath Miller-With the tough hitting power defense of the Panthers, it will be important to involve Heath Miller in the game plan. He’s the security blanket for Big Ben but he needs to be the number one outlet on plays too. If he is, the offense will move the ball more effectively.4. Martavis Bryant-Bryant should finally play this week and I expect him to be a true threat in the red zone starting this week.Mike Pelaia hosts the website Steel Nation Association www.steelnationassociation.com- Covering the Steelers and helping Children’s Hospital All Day Everyday.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest With good weather forecasted for the week, corn planting started across the Midwest. I anticipate a high percent of corn acres will be planted this week. Early planting like this is not bullish because it usually leads to higher yield potential.Beans continue to rally due to inflation worries in the macro economy. Strength of the Brazilian Real verses the Dollar may lead to better export potential from the U.S. Also, early corn planting indicates that not as many corn acres will be switched to beans as estimated.Fundamentally this bean rally seems a bit overdone. Technically, the market could continue to rally. However, some say this rally put a weather premium back into the market. Beans may be in for a wild ride, prices could range from $7.50 to $11 depending acres and yields this summer.Over the last few weeks there have been countless corn and soybean predictions. Corn estimates ranging from less than $3 to over $6 causes sensational headlines, but doesn’t help producers make decisions. Until harvest, weather will mostly be driving the market. It’s important to keep in mind that opportunities will become available for farmers, but only those with a plan will capture them.Market ActionLast week, a long standing order I had placed was filled at $9.60 on the Nov soybeans, putting me at 60% priced for my 2016 production.PositionMonths ago my goal was to be 66% priced by the start of planting for corn. Right now I am 30% covered with futures and 40% covered through sold calls. Selling calls doesn’t provide downside protection, but I do collect a premium upfront. Several of these trades have expired worthless recently, but each time the unsold bushels were replaced with another sold call position, with more premium in my pocket.With so many open options, what is my real position?This is hard to answer, because no one know where the market will be months from now. A drought may push prices higher. Great weather may push prices lower. My position varies based upon future prices, but protections are in place so I won’t hit the bottom price, but I won’t be hitting the top either.The table below shows potential Dec futures prices at Thanksgiving. I’ve included the % of my position sold at those prices and the average price sold at each. I also included “100% priced” which means taking the unpriced bushels at each point and selling at that price to understand overall position. IF – Dec Futures% SoldPriceIf 100% priced$3.0050%3.953.50$3.2050%4.053.65$3.4050%4.103.75$3.6050%4.153.90$3.8055%4.194.05$4.0060%4.234.15$4.2060%4.284.25$4.4065%4.324.35$4.6065%4.334.40$4.8070%4.354.45$5.0070%4.354.50 What is the take away from this?Having a plan in place is more important than the prices I pick. At $4 my average sold price is $4.23 on what I have sold, but only drops 20 cents if the market falls a $1 per bushel. On the flip side, my price doesn’t increase much if the market rallies to $5.It’s important to note, this plan was slow to develop. I didn’t just put it on in the last month. It includes 15 different options trades and 9 futures trades. While most of the trades happened in the last 8 months, they go as far back as 3/3/13.It may take time to put these trades together, but it’s worth it to minimize risk for our farm operation. I feel comfortable with my positions knowing what I know now. While I won’t get to take advantage of $5 corn on 100% of my corn if prices go up in the future, I’m relieved that I won’t have to settle for $3 corn if the market goes down.
