first_imgAbolish ICE activists occupied the hallway leading to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement offices in Syracuse, N.Y., on July 31 before 10 people were arrested.About 100 people had marched to the ICE location at 401 S. Salina St. where a spokesperson read an eviction notice to the agency. This said in part:“We have found your office and its counterparts in violation of a series of basic human rights in Syracuse: You have intimidated the entire immigrant community by working with Border Patrol to establish public transportation checkpoints, by invading or threatening to invade the homes of residents, and through aggressive interrogations of our community members. You have kidnapped an as-yet unknown quantity of Syracuse residents … and you have traumatized the family members and children of abductees. … Our community does not need your so-called ‘protection.’ … Get out, now.”Participating in the march and action were members of the Syracuse Immigrant and Refugee Defense Network, the Workers’ Center of Central New York/Centro de Trabajadores-CNY, the Syracuse Peace Council, the International Socialist Organization and other groups.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Check for Spider Mites in those Dry Indiana Bean Fields

first_img Check for Spider Mites in those Dry Indiana Bean Fields SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Check for Spider Mites in those Dry Indiana Bean Fields By Andy Eubank – Jul 24, 2018 Check-for-spider-mites-in-soybeansA wide variety of conditions during 2018 has led to a wide variety of soybean fields across Indiana. Recent rains have benefited soybean fields that received the moisture, but the rains were spotty. In the coming weeks rains will continue spotty but temperatures have moderated. Hoosier Ag Today chief meteorologist Ryan Martin says the moderation will continue into August, and agronomist Kirsten Thomas-Garriott is happy the crops are getting a break.“I’m really excited for this cooling off period I’ll call it, based on the temperatures that we’ve had up to this point,” she said. “The last month or so has been several degrees above normal. We’ve been accumulating more GDU’s than normal so far this year, and that’s really stressful particularly on our corn crop, maybe a little more so than our soybeans. So, we really, really welcome a little bit of a cooling off period as well as more frequent rains.”Because of the spotty nature of rainfall in the Hoosier state, some areas are dry and getting drier. In the new pest and crop update from Purdue, spider mites were identified as a possible cause of yellowing soybeans. Thomas-Garriott concurs with their advice to scout for spider mites.“I love how they simplified it in that article that came out on Friday. So, just simply take a piece of white paper out to the field with you and shake your plants over the paper and see what you get. With spider mites they’re going to be tiny little specs and thrips are going to be more elongated and about twice the size. That’s a really good, simple thing that growers can do to identify what might be out in their fields and if they might be at threshold, particularly on the field edges where we didn’t receive much rain. I would say an inch or less is where you’re really looking for the problem.”Frogeye is a disease that is popping up in eastern Indiana, and if you’ve hit the threshold a fungicide application is in order. Thomas-Garriott, a DEKALB Asgrow Technical Agronomist, talks more about that in the HAT interview:Kirsten-Thomas-Garriott-soybean-update Facebook Twitter Previous articleUSDA Announces $12B Aid Program Due to Trade WarNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for July 25, 2018 Andy Eubank SHARElast_img read more

Existing Dicamba Inventory Can be Used in Indiana Through June 20

first_img Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter By Eric Pfeiffer – Jun 9, 2020 SHARE Previous articleUS Meatpacking Facilities Operating More Than 95% of Capacity Compared to 2019Next articleUsing Profit Per Acre Mindset in Cattle Industry Eric Pfeiffer SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Existing Dicamba Inventory Can be Used in Indiana Through June 20 Existing Dicamba Inventory Can be Used in Indiana Through June 20 Last week’s Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that vacated three dicamba registrations shook the world of agriculture. Can I use dicamba for the rest of this season?Indiana Farm Bureau President Randy Kron says right now, the answer is yes. The Indiana State Chemist’s Office has advised them that the labels are still registered in Indiana and can be used through the Indiana cutoff date of June 20th. The EPA also said Monday night that farmers could use existing inventory.The Indiana State Chemist tweeted this information on Tuesday:Kron says despite those clarifications, it remains a fluid situation.“It’s subject to change at any minute. I just heard earlier that even the EPA’s interpretation saying that we could go ahead and use what we have in storage is being challenged in court now too. So, this is a pretty fluid situation and changing by the minute.”Kron is concerned about what the ruling means going forward. If it stands, he says it could have a significant impact on soybean seed supply for next growing season.“Most of the seed beans have been planted that will be used for next year by the seed companies. If they’re pretty reliant on the dicamba, and this stands, there probably won’t be many dicamba beans planted at all. So, I’m worried a little. I have not talked to any seed companies yet, but what happens to the seed supply on the soybean side?”Kron reminds growers that even though EPA’s clarification said they could continue using dicamba through July 31st, the Indiana label says it is restricted after June 20th. He hopes there are at least a few more days suitable for spraying between now and then.For more information, you can visit the Office of Indiana State Chemist website.last_img read more

Challenger portal signs up 10,000 branches as it prepares to go live

first_imgRightmove challenger portal Homesearch says it has commitments from 10,000 branches to list properties on its site when the platform goes live for agents on Wednesday.Chief Operating Officer Sam Hunter admits that relatively few of these 10,000 are paying customers at the moment, but that he’s been overwhelmed by the thousands of independent agents who have signed up to list their properties.“To be working with so many agents so early has exceeded all of our expectations,” he says.Hunter says the agents signed up so have some 395,000 properties to list between them, a figure expects to rise to 450,000 by next week.This would give it approximately half of Rightmove’s listings and puts it well on the way to becoming a fully-fledged portal when it launches to the public in the middle of July.Public launch“We’re inviting agents to have a play with it and really understand how it works before the public begin using it,” he says.“We believe that the traction we’re seeing is proof that agents have wanted to see something new for a long time, which keeps us focused on making sure that we deliver both the product and ongoing business support they need.“We’re really thankful to those who have helped us hit this milestone so quickly.”Hunter prefers not to call his platform a ‘portal’ but rather a next generation property ecosystem, where property professionals and consumers can interact to buy, sell, rent, invest or simply research the UK housing market.Read more about Homesearch.Sam Hunter Homesearch June 26, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Assembly candidate Hart plans to fight conservative extremism

first_imgI come from a strong union household and I’m the youngest daughter of a Jersey City educator and a Teamster. I’m also the proud wife of a Jersey City Fire Captain. As a mother to three kids, I’m running for Assembly to bring new ideas and a fresh approach to the problems of our district and to represent real Democratic values in Trenton.  We need Assembly representatives that are in touch with the district and the issues affecting our neighborhoods. I work as a teacher and through my work in the community, I see firsthand the real-life issues that need to be addressed. The 31st District Assembly members have been absent on major issues, and yet available for every photo opportunity.If I know one thing about elections – is that they are won in the streets talking to voters, which is why my campaign is built around people, fueled by their ideas and strong Democratic principles.If elected, I’ll get right to work addressing property taxes, reforming the Port Authority, fighting to alleviate traffic on our highways and bridges, fully funding our public schools, protecting our environment, balancing our budget and improving healthcare affordability.These are the issues that the public cares about. As Assemblywoman, I want to be a champion to ensure every taxpayer’s voice is heard in Trenton.Today, the very Democratic values we hold dear are under assault by Donald Trump and the Republican Party. As a result, we’re seeing unprecedented conflicts of interest, threats to defund and privatize our schools, attempts to dismantle healthcare for millions, and a rise in hate crimes against our neighbors based solely on their religion, race or sexual orientation. It is imperative to have state representatives who will defend the residents of Bayonne and Jersey City against Chris Christie, Donald Trump and the Republican Party.I look forward to standing alongside Democratic gubernatorial candidate Phil Murphy in the fight against conservative extremism and I hope to earn your support in the Democratic Primary on June 6thSincerely,Kristen Zadroga-HartDemocratic Candidate for Assembly Dear Editor:My name is Kristen Zadroga-Hart, and I’m a Democrat running to represent Bayonne and Jersey City in the NJ State Assembly. Whether your family has been here for generations or just recently settled in our community, every single hardworking family throughout the district deserves a representative that will fight for them.last_img read more
