From Orange County Commissioner Bryan NelsonWhat are the merits of trees in an urban environment? Orange County wanted to find out.On June 13th, Orange County hosted a community meeting to give information to the public regarding the study on unincorporated Orange County’s urban trees as well as to collect opinions and ideas from the community. There were maps to detail information on where amongst the County there are varying amounts of trees and what kind of trees. Coordinators of the meeting and study were present to answer any questions and receive feedback for consideration.The information received helped to answer the lead question.Trees are often mistaken as a liability to building establishments, parking lots, and their overall profits, but trees actually have been found to extend the life and well-being of parking lots.An urban tree canopy is not just the area that contains the tree but also includes the area that the tree overhangs to provide shade and protection. Trees provide many benefits to the community from environmental to economic to aesthetic. The benefits of trees can easily exceed the costs of planting and maintaining by reducing runoff, lowering temperatures, decreasing air pollution, cutting down on heating and cooling expenses, giving aesthetic benefits, reducing atmospheric carbon dioxide, improving learning and concentration, boosting health and well-being, raising property values, and providing habitats for wildlife to thrive.Trees are often mistaken as a liability to building establishments, parking lots, and their overall profits. But trees actually have been found to extend the life and well-being of parking lots when it includes trees throughout. After all, many people tend to prefer to park under shade rather than the blaring hot sun of Central Florida with no protection at all. Trees give a less harsh feeling to people as well as make them feel safer and more comfortable.Trees are often a great tie-in to the increasingly popular hot topic of pedestrian and bicyclist safety as well as the heavy, very demanding traffic issues in Central Florida, particularly Orange County. Trees are great for traffic calming, or more specifically slowing down traffic, making drivers more aware of surroundings, and encouraging more careful driving. Trees are just one example of a traffic calming technique in modifying the physical design of a roadway to slow traffic and make for safer travel. Other examples might be narrowing of roads and speed humps. The addition of trees may give drivers the feeling that the roadway is narrower than it really is which encourages slower, more careful driving. This means that drivers are more likely to take notice and caution when there are pedestrians or bicyclists nearby. Trees that are too large or certain shapes just need to be avoided so that the necessary viewing range that drivers need is not obscured and therefore cause extra traffic accidents.Trees are an excellent way to make it more pleasant for people to choose alternative ways to get around the community other than just by personal vehicles. Tree canopies make it much more comfortable, enjoyable, relaxing, and less brutally hot in warm weather to walk or bicycle around whether for exercise, pleasure, errands, getting to work, or whatever it may be. When people walk or bike, it reduces the damage to the environment from so many cars on roadways and decreasing cars on the roads when more people walk or bike also decreases traffic congestion with fewer cars on the roads. Better environments for walking and biking as a result of more trees also makes it more tolerable for those who choose or need to use bus systems for transit.Trees can improve a community’s energy efficiency and air quality, control storm water runoff, reduce flooding risks and make public areas more beautiful and appealing.When conditions are better for non-motor vehicle travel, then people more often walk around where there are trees and more likely window shop, which leads to eventual purchases. Downtown Winter Park near Park Avenue does a great job with tree-lined walkways along retail and specialty shops, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and more. It is always great to see people enjoying the outdoors doing such a variety of things in that area and slightly less reliant on cars. A favorite sight is the landscaped medians that also feature areas with benches in which it is not uncommon to see someone relaxing with a book.The ability for people to be able to get outdoors and be more comfortable under tree canopies when they walk, bike, sit, or whatever it may greatly improve the health and well-being of people. The act of spending time outdoors can improve health, brain function, mood, behavioral issues, and more. This idea can be described with the term “nature deficit disorder,” which was coined by Richard Louv in his 2005 book Last Child in the Woods. When the well-being of people in a community is better, it makes sense that a community as a whole should likely be more successful, and happy.It was actually in Florida that the term “green infrastructure” was coined, but at the time it only referred to green infrastructure like the wetlands such as the Everglades. The term is today carries so much more meaning. Green infrastructure now includes the idea that natural trees, old and new, should be evident amongst communities even in urban areas for many great benefits like economic, ecological, psychological and physiological. This can mean also greenery just in potted plants, but it is very important to have trees planted in the grounds for the environment even more. It is valuable to keep old trees and try to, when possible, developing around them, and planting new trees as well. Everyone can help by providing their feedback, saving and caring for trees, and planting new trees when and where possible.If you have any questions, concerns, or ideas on this study, please visit or email our office at [email protected] Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more

Global Food and Ag Companies come to Walmart Sustainability Table

first_img Global Food and Ag Companies come to Walmart Sustainability Table Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Apr 29, 2014 Home Indiana Agriculture News Global Food and Ag Companies come to Walmart Sustainability Table SHARE Walmart sustainability expoTuesday Walmart held its very first Sustainable Product Expo at the Arkansas headquarters and the company was joined by numerous CEO’s of global companies to explore what’s really being done to make sustainability more than just a buzzword. Walmart secured commitments from those companies to accelerate innovation in sustainable agriculture and recycling.“Our commitment today is focusing on more effective use of nutrients, initially on a million acres to improve the efficiency of nutrient use,” said Hugh Grant, Chairman and CEO of Monsanto. “We’re also looking at better use of water. In farming the scary thing is you can never predict the weather but you really can manage your inputs and you can manage the effectiveness of how you look after that soil for the next generation. That’s our optimistic view of what can be done in agriculture going forward.”Rick Smith, President and CEO of Dairy Farmers of America said strategies implemented ten years ago have led to an improvement in dairy sustainability.“So now we are regularly engaged talking about animal care and wellness, pesticide use, fertilizer strategies, water conservation, employee relations, energy, and we’re making as an industry tremendous progress.”Smith committed that DFA will have more than 90 percent of its 9,000 member farms participating in its Gold Standard Dairy program by 2020. The program focuses on resource efficiency and optimization.Greg Page, Executive Chairman of the Board at Cargill expressed optimism that the challenges of feeding a much larger world population can be met.“We can do it safely, we can do it affordably, which is important, and we can do it sustainably. I think in conjunction with Hugh and other organizations we can do it on the same, or a very small increase in the amount of acres that we use today. So the footprint that agriculture asks of our planet does not need to expand in order to serve those needs, but we can only do that with the kind of behaviors and collaborations that we’re hopefully here to talk about today and accelerate.”Cargill will launch the next generation of its NextField precision agriculture platform, which will have the capability to analyze hundreds of factors for farmers’ fields, giving them more precision to make agronomic decisions. By 2020 Cargill will double its NextField acres bringing them to more than 1 million acres of total land being optimized for maximum productivity with minimum environmental impact.Also presenting Tuesday were representatives from Coke and Pepsi, General Mills, Kelloggs and Campbell Soup.

Court Strikes Down Tighter Anhydrous Ammonia Restrictions

first_img SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Sep 26, 2016 Facebook Twitter Previous articleIndiana Harvest Behind Last Years PaceNext articleUSDA Waiting on More Funding Hoosier Ag Today SHARE Court Strikes Down Tighter Anhydrous Ammonia Restrictions Facebook Twitter The Ag Retailers Association says Friday’s court decision to strike down tighter anhydrous ammonia restrictions will save U.S. retailers an estimated $100 million in compliance costs. A U.S. appeals court ruled against the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, OSHA, because the Administration violated the Occupational Safety and Health Act. Last year, OSHA issued a memo redefining the retail facility exemption to the Process Safety Management Standard without seeking industry input. The appeals court ruled OSHA should have posted for public comment the proposed changes to the PSM standard.Process Safety Management applies to any facility storing 10,000 pounds or more of anhydrous ammonia. However, retail agriculture facilities selling more than 50 percent of the fertilizer to farmers have been exempt from PSM. OSHA’s 2015 memo eliminated the exemption.Source: NAFB News Service Home Indiana Agriculture News Court Strikes Down Tighter Anhydrous Ammonia Restrictionslast_img read more

Lighthizer Cautious About China Trade Progress

first_img Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Lighthizer Cautious About China Trade Progress At a hearing with the House Ways and Means Committee this week, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said it’s unclear if negotiations with China will bring the trade war to an end. Politico says that’s a far more cautious outlook than President Trump has presented recently.Lighthizer says “much still need to be done” before a deal can be reached between the two countries. He also warned that negotiations, as well as the broader U.S. trade agenda, will crumble if Congress doesn’t pass the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Trade Pact.  “It just has to pass,” Lighthizer says. “If it doesn’t, you’ll have no credibility at all with China and you’ll have no credibility on any deals with your other trading partners.”The USTR office is set to formally postpone raising duties on $200 billion in Chinese goods, which was set to happen on Saturday. There is no new date set for potentially hiking up the tariffs. Lighthizer is planning a trip to Tokyo, Japan, probably in the next month, to discuss China and open up U.S.-Japan trade negotiations.Chinese Grain Subsidies Are Too HighU.S. Wheat Associates (USW), along with other commodity groups and the USDA, welcomed a ruling from the World Trade Organization dispute panel regarding Chinese grain subsidies. The WTO panel ruled that Chinese government payments to farmers for grains exceeded China’s WTO agreements and significantly distort global wheat trade. The dispute panel formed after the U.S. Trade Representative’s Office challenged China’s domestic agricultural support programs for wheat, corn, and rice through the WTO dispute settlement process back in September of 2016.USW President Vince Peterson says they’re pleased that the Trump Administration has continued to support his group through the dispute. “U.S. farmers have been hurt by China’s overproduction and protectionist measures for too long,” Peterson says, “and it’s past time for China to start living up to its commitments.” A 2015 Iowa State University study said China’s domestic market support price for wheat at the time of almost $10 per bushel cost U.S. wheat farmers between $650 and $700 million annually in lost income by preventing export opportunities and suppressing global wheat prices. “The past two decades have been a lost opportunity for the WTO negotiating function as major countries like China have refused to take on new responsibilities,” Peterson says. “Perhaps this will be the wake-up call countries need to realize restricting trade opportunities hurts everyone.”Source: NAFB News Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Feb 28, 2019 SHARE SHARE Lighthizer Cautious About China Trade Progress Previous articleFarm Debt Levels Equaling 1980s Farm CrisisNext articleWheeler gets EPA Senate Confirmation Andy Eubanklast_img read more

Finding Trent Johnson’s replacement: A few names to consider

This included an abysmal 8-64 record (.111 winning percentage) in Big 12 Conference play, making him statistically the worst coach in Big 12 history.center_img TCU head coach Trent Johnson instructs his team during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game against Texas Tech in the first round of the Big 12 conference tournament in Kansas City, Mo., Wednesday, March 9, 2016. (AP Photo/Orlin Wagner) But now, the new search for a coach begins. Here are a few of the possible candidates for the position.In this Dec. 28, 2014, file photo, Oklahoma City Thunder coach Scott Brooks yells from the sideline during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Dallas Mavericks in Dallas. The Thunder fired Brooks on Wednesday, April 22, 2015. (AP Photo/LM Otero, File)SCOTT BROOKS, former Oklahoma City Thunder head coach:Brooks was fired after the 2015 season after missing the playoffs for the first time during his tenure with Oklahoma City. He was very successful with the Thunder, taking the team to the NBA Finals in 2011-2012. He finished with an overall record of 338-207.Brooks played for a year at TCU before transferring to San Joaquin Delta College to be closer to home. Brooks went on to transfer to University of California Irvine before going into the NBA.Brooks went on to play ten NBA seasons for six different teams.Brooks would be a great hire for TCU because he would bring years of NBA experience, which is what a lot of top recruits value in a head coach. He also has experience coaching two of the NBA’s best players: Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.Although Brooks has never coached college basketball, he knows how to deal with superstars and would give TCU a huge edge in recruiting.  Brooks is a young coach — 50 years old — who runs an up-tempo style and would be a huge get for TCU.Stephen F. Austin coach Brad Underwood talks about his team’s third-round game against UCLA on Sunday in the NCAA men’s college basketball tournament, at a news conference Saturday, March 22, 2014, in San Diego. (AP Photo/Lenny Ignelzi)BRAD UNDERWOOD, Stephen F. Austin head coach:Underwood is in his third season as the head coach for SFA. He has an 88-13 record, which includes a third straight trip to the NCAA tournament this year.The Frogs have never had more than four wins in conference play during one season. Underwood, while in a much weaker conference, is 53-1 in conference play. Playing stronger in the conference is something TCU needs to improve on, and Underwood could help with that.   Although he has only been a head coach for three years, Underwood has over 20 years of experience as an assistant.  After the 2013-14 season, Underwood signed an eight-year contract extension worth $400,000 a year.TCU could throw a lot more money at him, and with the Frogs being in the Big 12, Underwood would definitely hear TCU out.Texas Arlington head coach Scott Cross talks to his players during the second half of an NCAA college basketball game against Texas, Tuesday, Dec. 2, 2014, in Austin, Texas. Texas won 63-53. (AP Photo/Eric Gay)SCOTT CROSS, University of Texas-Arlington head coach: Scott Cross has led UT-Arlington to three NCAA tournament appearances and, in nine years at the helm, is UTA’s winningest coach in school history. Being from Arlington, Cross knows the DFW area well, which bodes well for recruiting.Cross is 153-129 at UTA but is the only coach in the school’s history to have a winning record. One problem: the 41-year-old is coaching at his alma mater and this week signed a contract extension that will keep him at UTA until 2020.Like Underwood at Stephen F. Austin, Cross could receive more money and have the chance to coach in a stronger conference if he were to make the move to TCU.Pittsburgh head coach Jamie Dixon reacts during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament against North Carolina, Thursday, March 10, 2016, in Washington. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon)JAMIE DIXON, Pittsburgh head coach:Dixon played basketball at TCU from 1984-87 before getting drafted by the Washington Bullets. Dixon would be a great hire for TCU, but he is probably the least likely to leave his current job.After the 2012-13 season, Dixon signed a contract extension with Pittsburgh and is making around 3.2 million per year. Dixon has been sought after by other top programs and has turned them down in the past, telling reporters that he wants to finish his career in Pittsburgh.Dixon is 326-119 in his thirteen years at Pittsburgh, and it is unlikely he returns to Fort Worth to coach the Frogs.Dayton head coach Archie Miller works the bench during the first half of their NCAA college basketball game against St. Bonaventure, Saturday, Feb. 20, 2016, in Dayton, Ohio. St. Bonaventure won 79-72. (AP Photo/John Minchillo)ARCHIE MILLER, Dayton head coach:Miller has coaching in his blood. His brother is Arizona head coach Sean Miller, and they’re the sons of Pennsylvania’s winningest coach, John Miller.Although he has no real connection to TCU, the Frogs should give him a call. He has worked under Thad Matta and Sean Miller at two of the most prestigious college basketball universities.He is 115-54 in his five seasons at Dayton but is 78-27 in his last three years. Dayton has made the tournament in those three years, making the elite eight in 2014 and the round of 32 in 2015. Dayton is a 7 seed in the upcoming tournament.Miller is under contract until 2021-22, making around $652,000 a year. TCU could definitely throw a little more at him to try and lure him away.Miller, a young energetic coach, has proven he can change a program and is the type of coach TCU needs.KOBE BRYANT, Los Angeles Lakers guard: Blake Grable ReddIt Facebook Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Linkedin ReddIt Blake Grable TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello Doctson impresses at NFL Combine Blake Grable read more

Modelling the plasmasphere for the international reference ionosphere

first_imgThe paper discusses how profiles of electron and/or ion distributions that are produced by two different computer models can be smoothly coupled together. The first of these models is the empirical International Reference Ionosphere which produces a vertical profile of ionospheric parameters up to an altitude of 1000 km. The second is a physically-based, diffusive equilibrium model of the plasmasphere based upon the theoretical work of Angerami and Thomas /1/, in which plasma is constrained to move parallel to the Earth’s magnetic field lines. Some problems associated with this work are considered, as are some initial results.last_img read more

USS Shiloh Sailors Take Part in Goryokaku Castle’s 150th Anniversary Parade

first_img May 20, 2014 Shiloh arrived in Hakodate on May 16 to participate in the commemoration of the 160th Anniversary of Commodore Matthew C. Perry’s arrival to Hakodate in 1854.“We are honored to take part in the celebration of a piece of history that has fostered and made stronger the friendship between U.S and Japan,” said Shiloh’s commanding officer, Capt. Kurush F. Morris. “This type of interaction helps Sailors develop a deeper appreciation for the Japanese culture and allows them to interact with the local people.”In 1869, the conclusion of the battle of Hakodate in the civil war between the samurai and the new government, forces began a new era for the people of Japan. Every year in May a festival is held in commemoration of the warriors who died in battle.Shiloh Sailors dressed in blues, along with local citizen wearing replicated war uniforms, marched through the streets of Hakodate waving at children and families that gathered to celebrate the historical event.“Seeing the pride the people of Hakodate take in commemorating their heritage made me appreciate the Japanese culture even more,” said Culinary Specialist Seaman Katrice Diggs from Newark, New Jersey.The procession march ended once inside Goryokaku Castle where a reenactment was held, followed by a performance by the city marching band. The day concluded with shots fired from three cannons to symbolize the completion of the event.“This was the first parade I have ever had the honor to participate in, and it was a wonderful feeling to build friendships and celebrate with the people of Hakodate,” said Electronic Technician 1st Class Raymond Lau from San Francisco.Shiloh is on patrol in the 7th Fleet area of operation supporting security and stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.[mappress]Press Release, May 20, 2014; Image: US Navy View post tag: Shiloh Share this article View post tag: Parade View post tag: take View post tag: Castle View post tag: sailors Training & Education View post tag: part Back to overview,Home naval-today USS Shiloh Sailors Take Part in Goryokaku Castle’s 150th Anniversary Parade center_img View post tag: USS View post tag: News by topic View post tag: 150th View post tag: Navy View post tag: Anniversary View post tag: Goryokaku USS Shiloh Sailors Take Part in Goryokaku Castle’s 150th Anniversary Parade View post tag: Naval The U.S. Navy Sailors from the Ticonderoga-class cruiser USS Shiloh (CG 67) marched in Goryokaku Castle’s 150th Anniversary Parade in Hakodate, May 18.last_img read more
