One of University of Georgia Cooperative Extension’s key commitments to the state and its farmers is to provide the training and information that private pesticide applicators need to ensure the safe use of pesticides.The way that UGA Extension offers trainings, exams and continuing education classes for pesticide applicators’ license renewals will change in the coming months. This change will ensure that UGA Extension can continue to provide pesticide safety education throughout the state, while staying in line with changes mandated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). “Our commitment to the safety of those who work on farms, those who eat the produce grown in our state, and the general public has always been a big part of what we do here,” said Mark McCann, assistant dean for Agriculture and Natural Resources Extension at UGA. “We will continue to make sure that those who use restricted-use pesticides as part of their livelihoods – landscapers and farmers – will have 24/7 access to the training they need to use those pesticides safely.”UGA Extension has developed a state-specific curriculum and exam series for private pesticide applicators.To comply with EPA rule changes and to offer Georgia’s farmers and pesticide operators more focused, local instruction, the UGA Pesticide Education Program created a new curriculum and set in place an online training system which is available 24/7.While these changes will be more convenient for farmers and other private pesticide applicators, they will require a $25 fee for the online training program. The current program was free of charge.Along with the EPA rule change that allows for more local control over training, federal funds that previously supported training have been rolled back, so UGA Extension will have to charge fees to offset that loss of funding.“We have tried to position the fee so it’s not an impediment, but it does offset a portion of the costs,” McCann said. “There is no additional licensing fee from the Georgia Department of Agriculture.”This new system will take effect May 1, 2017.Major changes in Georgia’s program based on the EPA rule change are as follows:Recertification credits: Pesticide applicators were required to attain three hours of continuing education credit every five years. In the future, they will need to attain five hours every five years. This rule needs to be made official within the regulations of the Georgia Department of Agriculture, so it will not take affect until the department updates its rules.New emphasis on safety: All future workshops and field days offering continuing credits for the pesticide licensure will include a section on pesticide safety. This section must take up 10 to 15 minutes of the workshop or field day.Online course fees: In order to cover the costs of instruction, new materials and trainings, online courses will cost $25, which will partially support the UGA Extension Pesticide Education Program. The course is currently free.Online training: In the past, most training has taken place in county Extension offices. The new training will be taken online. Testing is done at the end of each section. A passing score is required to proceed to the next section.Testing: Trainees now take about two hours to complete the course and certification test. Under the new program, it will take four to five hours to complete. However, individuals can take a break and return to the online course as needed.Temporary licensure: Currently, farmers can get a temporary license upon completing the exam and the license application with their agent. This will continue in the new program. For more information about pesticide trainings, please contact your local UGA Extension office at 1-800-ASK-UGA1.
Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Retired Gen. Colin Powell made news last year when he went across the political aisle and endorsed Democrat Hillary Clinton over his party’s nominee, Donald Trump.Now that the country is a month into the Trump administration—a month defined by a fusillade of executive orders, a large number of leaks and a combative relationship with the press—Powell’s conversation at LIU Post promises to be worthwhile.The moderator for the evening will be former Rep. Steve Israel, a Democrat from Dix Hills who retired last year and is now chairman of the LIU Global Institute, which focuses on foreign policy.Powell’s time in public service spans more than a half-century. He served for two years as President Ronald Reagan’s national security advisor and as the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for both Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton. Later, George W. Bush appointed him as U.S. Secretary of State—a position that placed him in the middle of diplomatic efforts following the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.Powell should be able to provide insight into America’s seemingly endless “War on Terror,” which the US is now fighting in at least seven countries. No doubt, there’s much more to discuss.The event is slated for March 2 at 7:30 p.m. inside the concert hall at LIU Post’s Tilles Center. Single Ticket Prices: $55, $80, $110.(Featured photo: Retired Gen. Colin Powell courtesy Department of Defense/Marvin Lynchard)
“Winners compare their achievements with their goals, while losers compare their achievements with those of other people” – Nido QubeinLast month I attended a conference with over two hundred other speakers, writers, and coaches. The focus of the event was on how to define, develop, and deliver your message to the world.The participants came from different stages in their journeys and shared a common interest in learning what the speakers had done to create success in their particular niche. The lessons were wide ranging and varied, from those who had achieved success by marketing products and services online, to those who had built successful speaking businesses, to others who ran successful coaching practices.Excellent speakers, a great setting, and a well planned flow all made the event valuable, and frankly I walked away with a lot of great ideas that I’ll be implementing in the months ahead.But there are some people I met who probably wouldn’t say that about their experience, and chances are that in a few weeks (perhaps days) it is likely that some of them are questioning whether they should even continue on the path they chose that brought them to the conference.Why the mismatch in outcomes from people who attended the same conference?Because some of the attendees will fall into a trap that often derails the decision to take action—what I call the Fallacy of the Mismatched Comparison.Let me explain in the way that it became apparent to me this was occurring during the conference.One of my goals at the event was to interact with other attendees so I might learn from them as well as from the speakers. So I intentionally relocated to a different table after every major break—to meet new people, learn about their aspirations, and gain insight into what they would be doing next.Being one who tends to return early from breaks, I often found myself sitting with one or two others while we waited for everyone else to come back. After we introduced ourselves to each other I adopted one of my favorite go to approaches for such situations—I started asking questions about their takeaways from the last presentation and how they might use what they learned.The responses to my questions almost always fit into one of two categories:The confident here’s what I will do response—characterized by the quick identification of one of two things the last speaker said that resonated with them, quickly applied to their current situation, then transformed into a doable action step they would take.The overwhelmed, unsure response, why it won’t work for me response—characterized by a hesitancy to choose an idea they could apply, an unwillingness to commit to action, and a tendency to explain how the insights were difficult to apply to their particular situation.Yup. There it is—the Fallacy of the Mismatched Comparison (raising its ugly head once again).OK, by now (if you haven’t already figured it out) you’re probably wondering what this fallacy is all about.It’s simple—it’s what happens when you compare the success someone else has achieved with the success you have not achieved, and conclude that it you cannot achieve that same level of success.Why is it a fallacy?Because it is built upon a false belief—thinking that you can (or should) go from where you are today to where someone else is who has been at it much longer and concluding that your vision is unachievable (when in reality it just needs more time and effort).For example, one of the people I spoke with lamented how she couldn’t possibly see herself doing what the last speaker had said. She continued by explaining where she was in her business and lamenting the gap between where she was and where the speaker was (all the while affirming why she couldn’t do it).And although it should have been obvious to her, it apparently (as confirmed in our discussion) did not occur to her that the speaker had invested over a decade in getting to the place they described to us, while she had only been pursuing her path for two years.So what does this mean to you (or your credit union)?As the year comes to an end and you do what we all do at this time of the year—look back on the progress made in the past year and ponder your vision for what you will achieve in the year ahead—be sure not to fall victim to the Fallacy of the Mismatched Comparison.In other words…Looking back on 2014: Consider the success achieved based on where you/your credit union was at the beginning of the year and celebrate the progress made during the year.Looking out to 2015: Define your goals and objectives based on where you/your credit union are/is now and where it can go in the year ahead as you pursue the destination you have decided to pursue. 8SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Michael Hudson Dr. Michael Hudson started his first business when he was just 7 years old…riding his bicycle from house to house selling greeting cards and holiday gifts.

Every visitor must complete the coronavirus screening questionnaire and have their temperature checked. (WBNG) — The Tioga County Sheriff’s Office says visitation will resume at the Tioga County Jail on Monday. Tim Agan, jail administer, says all vistations will be held in the non-contact visitation room. Captain Shawn Nalepa, captain of operations, says the sheriff’s office thought it was safe enough to allow visitations. “Obviously, we’re not trying to punish the inmates,” Nalepa said. “We’re just here to keep them safe and follow court orders. If we can accommodate them with their visitations, we can.” According to a Facebook post on the Tioga County Sheriff’s page, all visits are non-contact only, and visitors and inmates must wear a mask at all times. Reservations must be made 24-hours in advance, but no more than seven days before the requested visitation time. There will be one-hour visitation periods Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 9:55 p.m. All visitors must schedule a visitation by contacting Sgt. Chad Edwards at (607) 687-8463, Monday through Friday from 9 to 11 a.m. “We looked at the outlay of the building to see what would be available,” Agan said. “Obviously, with COVID we have the restrictions. We must keep as much distance between people and as much airflow between people.” There is a maximum of one reservation period per day and a maximum of two visitation periods in seven days.
Farmers in Central Java have set aside 5 tons of rice and 500 kilograms of eggs to be donated to residents affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in another community-based movement promoting gotong royong (mutual cooperation), as harvest time came recently.The farmers, under the Central Java Andalan Fishermen and Farmers Community (KTNA) handed over the donation to the Central Java administration, which will distribute the rice and eggs to those in needs in the province.”The rice is from members of the KTNA. We set aside some of our crops after harvest time [for the COVID-19 response],” Central Java KTNA acting chairman Munaji told the province’s governor Ganjar Pranowo during the handover ceremony on Thursday. Read also: In Indonesia, rural helps urban to ensure food supply during coronavirus pandemicGanjar lauded the thoughtful gesture and said the donations were needed during the current crisis, as many people have lost their jobs and sources of income.”I am extremely proud that amid the crisis we are currently going through, the farmers still have the willingness to work hand in hand to help those in need. This is a real form of gotong royong,” said the governor. (vny)Topics :
Raj ThamotheramRaj Thamotheram is CEO and founder of responsible investment think-tank Preventable Surprises. Other groups that one would expect to be active on such a key issue – Business for Social Responsibility, Council for Institutional Investors, and Principles of Responsible Investment – seem not to be .The silver lining in the cloud that is Donald Trump’s presidency is that he has shown how easily otherwise decent Americans have rolled over and are now a major part of the problem.This quote from a New York Times editorial , published on Friday, says it all:“Government ethics officials had strongly urged Mr Trump to sell off his businesses… But he refused, because under the law he is not prevented from exploiting the presidency to turn a profit, and, unlike previous presidents, he doesn’t much care how that looks. Until Americans and their elected representatives demand statutory changes, Mr Trump and his family seem determined to use his electoral success to make a buck, regardless of how shameful the spectacle.”Put simply, Trump is getting away with it because of a rotten culture, especially – as the Economist noted last month – amongst the “craven… Republican enablers”. Presumably, they in turn believe that those who voted for them (independents too) are going to accept this corruption, or maybe even secretly like this kind of behaviour.For those who are tempted to try the “don’t bring politics into professional life” argument, let me pre-empt that: Please get real about your values in practice and just be authentic about the trade-offs you are willing to support, actively or passively, if you want me to take what you say seriously.So what does being authentic and being part of the solution look like? Hue Chen was the first exclusive consultant to the Fraud Section of the US Department of Justice, and author of the Fraud Section’s Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs document.Here is her explanation of why she felt compelled to resign. Rather than do it quietly, she has been honourably outspoken about why she left.Let me be clear: being authentically part of the solution doesn’t mean resigning! But those who invest in the US and who assert they can ensure appropriate oversight of investee companies in this context have a lot of explaining to do. So do their CEOs, who are largely sitting on the fence. This problem can’t be addressed at the level of corporate governance heads, corporate governance trade bodies, or professional organisations.There are organisations doing good work on this topic. InfluenceMap and the Union of Concerned Scientists are doing good work on the issue of corporate influence on climate policy. There are academics like Harvard’s Michael Toffel also working on what investors should expect companies to do differently.The Centre for Political Accountability covers the full spectrum of issues where corporate capture of politics is a problem, while the Committee for Economic Development takes a more systemic and preventative approach.All of these organisations need the active support of the investors – and especially the large fund managers, which in turn means the active interest of lots of asset owners. Investors headquartered in places where bribery and corruption is less tolerated, such Canada and Scandinavia, have a particular responsibility to use their space to operate and set benchmarks for their US peers – just as, in time past, the US has done internationally.As a consequence of the neglect shown by investors to this issue and over decades, there is a lot of ground to be made up and quickly.Trump is a symptom of a culture that investors have enabled. To see him as an aberration that can be waited out or even excised (aka impeached), before everything then goes back to “normal”, is another big error of judgement. That’s one of the reasons why I say this is probably the number one corporate governance issue for all investors in the US, and especially those who claim to be ESG or sustainability-oriented.What do you think? And, most importantly, how are you going to become a bigger part of the solution? When I first heard the phrase “legalised corruption and bribery” to describe the US, I thought it very apt.The hypocrisy of lecturing emerging markets about this huge problem – and of course there are very corrupt countries around the world – while simultaneously tolerating, even justifying, a cultural variant in the US rather stuck in my throat.I wrote about it in 2012 and, ever hopeful, tried to stimulate mainstream action. But colleagues in the corporate governance field generally thought I was overstating the problem and largely gave this issue a rather wide berth.To their credit, the International Corporate Governance Network (ICGN) did some work around the disclosure of political donations – including in western countries – a few years later in 2015, but the initiative lacked energy.  The phrase seems to have been initially coined by a former chairman of Ernst Young, who was also co-chair of the Committee for Economic Development, but it is now used by many including Thomas Friedman. Checking their sites today, 3 July 2017, I still don’t see any work on this critical issue.

Early on, many of the patients in the outbreak in Wuhan, China reportedly had some link to a large seafood and animal market, suggesting animal-to-person spread. However, a growing number of patients reportedly have not had exposure to animal markets, indicating person-to-person spread is occurring. At this time, it’s unclear how easily or sustainably this virus is spreading between people.What is the source of 2019-nCoV?A: Public health officials and partners are working hard to identify the source of the 2019-nCoV. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses, some causing illness in people and others that circulate among animals, including camels, cats and bats. Analysis of the genetic tree of this virus is ongoing to know the specific source of the virus. SARS, another coronavirus that emerged to infect people, came from civet cats, while MERS, another coronavirus that emerged to infect people, came from camels. SymptomsHow 2019-nCoV SpreadsCoronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in many different species of animals, including camels, cattle, cats, and bats. Rarely, animal coronaviruses can infect people and then spread between people such as with MERS and SARS.When person-to-person spread has occurred with MERS and SARS, it is thought to have happened mainly via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes, similar to how influenza and other respiratory pathogens spread. Spread of SARS and MERS between people has generally occurred between close contacts.It’s important to note that how easily a virus spreads person-to-person can vary. Some viruses are highly contagious (like measles), while other viruses are less so. It’s important to know this in order to better understand the risk associated with this virus. The CDC considers this is a very serious public health threat. Prevention & Treatment Sharing is caring!
Solskjaer himself is under growing pressure but is confident United can turn things around on Sunday at Tranmere in the FA Cup fourth round.“For me, we do have a way of doing things,” he said at his pre-match press conference on Friday.“Of course you can see other teams have done well. Jurgen (Klopp) spent four years building his team and they’re doing well now, so of course – I’ve said so many times – it’s not going to be a quick fix.“And it’s not going to be like eight players in or 10 players in one transfer window. We’ve had one proper transfer window in the summer because the Januarys they are difficult, but we are trying to do something now.”Solskjaer believes United have laid the foundations for success, even if the side have lost more Premier League matches than they have won since his permanent appointment in March.“When you start on something, you stick to that plan,” the United boss said. “For me, anyway. I’m not going to change six or eight or nine or 10 months after I got the job and start believing in a different way of doing things.

Loading… After getting a mid-week “wake-up call” in the German Cup, Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich are relishing the chance to prove their might in a top-of-the-table clash at home to RB Leipzig on Sunday. Bayern’s sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic insists the defending champions want to show nearest rivals Leipzig “who is the boss” at Munich’s Allianz Area. Kimmich (R) expects a tough showdown against former club RB Leipzig on Sunday Salihamidzic said the hosts are embracing “the role of favourites”, adding that Leipzig had been “weakened a bit” by poor results. Bayern swept to the top of the table last weekend for the first time since October and have won their last eight games. However, Hoffenheim found plenty of space to attack in Wednesday’s German Cup third-round tie as Bayern conceded two goals in the final 10 minutes as a comfortable 4-1 lead became a nervy 4-3 victory. “Perhaps it’s quite good to realise before the Leipzig game, that things won’t simply work of their own accord,” admitted Bayern midfielder Joshua Kimmich.Advertisement Haaland has scored a record eight goals in his first four games for Dortmund Lewandowski is making the headlines with 35 goals in 29 games after scoring two more in Wednesday’s cup win against Hoffenheim.However, a big factor is the space and chances being created behind him by Mueller, who has seven goals and nine assists in the 14 games since Flick replaced Niko Kovac as head coach in November.Mueller’s form has sparked debate in Germany over whether head coach Joachim Loew should recall the player for Euro 2020 despite telling the 30-year-old last March that his international career is over.Key facts180 – The minutes Haaland has needed to score eight goals in four games for Dortmund.22 – The goals Lewandowski has scored in 22 league games. Only Gerd Mueller, in the 1972⁄73 season, has ever scored as many goals in the same number of games.17 – The age of Dortmund midfielder Giovanni Reyna, who scored his first goal for the club in Tuesday’s cup defeat at Bremen when he beat two defenders and curled his shot into the top corner.44 – The goals Lewandowski and Mueller have scored between them for Bayern in all competitions this season.Fixtures (all times 1430 GMT unless stated)FridayEintracht Frankfurt v Augsburg (1930)SaturdayWolfsburg v Fortuna Duesseldorf, Werder Bremen v Union Berlin, Hertha Berlin v Mainz, Freiburg v Hoffenheim, Schalke v Paderborn, Bayer Leverkusen v Borussia Dortmund (1730)SundayBorussia Moenchengladbach v Cologne, Bayern Munich v RB Leipzig (1700)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Head coach Hansi Flick called the narrow win a “wake-up call”. Leipzig, who spent more than a month over Christmas top of the table, have had cold water poured on their title aspirations in recent weeks. A shock 2-0 loss at Eintracht Frankfurt a fortnight ago cost them a four-point lead. Then Bayern went a point ahead at the top after Leipzig’s 2-2 draw at home to Borussia Moenchengladbach last Saturday. Another loss at Frankfurt in mid-week, when top-scoring striker Timo Werner and playmaker Emil Forsberg both started on the bench, saw Leipzig dumped them out of the German Cup. “Leipzig will want to show a reaction,” Kimmich said. Sunday’s clash will also see the league’s leading scorer Robert Lewandowski, who has 22 goals in 20 games, go head-to-head with his nearest rival Werner, who is on 20. Before Bayern and Leipzig slug it out, third-placed Borussia Dortmund could go top on Saturday with a win at Bayer Leverkusen. Erling Braut Haaland, 19, has a record eight goals in his first four games for Dortmund, who were knocked out of the German Cup in midweek when they went down 3-2 at Werder Bremen.Sports director Michael Zorc slammed the team for playing “listlessly, comfortably and slowly”.Haaland has yet to play a full 90 minutes for Dortmund as he works his way back to full fitness after a knee injury in December.One to watch: Thomas MuellerMueller (R) and Lewandowski have scored 44 goals between them for Bayern in all competitions this season Promoted Content6 Things Women Found Really Attractive In The 60’sEver Thought Of Sleeping Next To Celebs?
