Braves’ Mike Soroka leaves game against Nationals early after hit by pitch

first_imgMike Soroka’s outing against the Nationals Sunday didn’t go exactly as planned. The Braves right-hander was hit by a pitch in the top of the third inning off a fastball from Washington’s Austin Voth, forcing him to exit early after just 21 pitches. He was visibly frustrated before taking first base as he immediately slammed his bat.  RHP Mike Soroka was removed from the game as a precaution after being hit on the right arm.— Atlanta Braves (@Braves) June 23, 2019Luckily for Soroka and the Braves, X-rays on his arm came back as negative and could return to the mound as early as Friday.X-rays on Soroka’s forearm were negative. He won’t start in Folty spot Thursday, but could take his regular turn Friday.— Mark Bowman (@mlbbowman) June 23, 2019Soroka, 21, entered Sunday’s game with a 2.07 ERA, which was the second-lowest among MLB starters. He is now 8-1 with a 2.12 ERA in 12 starts this season. Josh Tomlin took the mound in relief in the bottom of the third. This HBP forced @Braves right-hander Mike Soroka to exit the game.Stay tuned.— FOX Sports South (@FOXSportsSouth) June 23, 2019The Braves announced during the game, which was scoreless at the time of Soroka’s departure, that the right-hander was removed for precautionary reasons.

Fiscal new year arrives with no resolutions

SA consumers help rebuild fish stocks

first_imgSouth Africa’s fish stocks are recovering, thanks to the vigilance of consumers, the effectiveness of programmes such as SASSI, and the cooperation of the fishing industry. (Image: Janine Erasmus) Thanks to South African consumers, the demand for over-exploited fish stocks is declining.Increasing consumer pressure on seafood retailers to stock sustainably harvested fish and support eco-friendly fishing methods have caused stocks of species such as kingklip to show signs of recovery.The Southern African Sustainable Seafood Initiative (SASSI) was launched six years ago to involve the entire seafood supply chain, including consumers, in creating a sustainable seafood industry.Today this initiative has proven to be a highly successful South African consumer campaign. The ocean has often been viewed as an “infinite resource”, but buy-in from the public is helping to correct this perception.Janine Basson from the Sustainable Fisheries Programme (SFP): Fisher and Consumer Outreach, says the SASSI programme has been so successful to date because consumers feel empowered. Their choices can drive positive change towards the recovery of fish stocks.“Consumers are given the opportunity to make informed choices when choosing which seafood to buy and eat. People want to be part of the solution to overfishing, and SASSI is a tool that allows them to do that,” Basson says.There are other seafood campaigns globally that are doing similar work. However, Basson says the major difference is that other international programmes do not partner with seafood industry players, whereas the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) South Africa is partnering with industry. This is a key strength of the programme.Finding solutions togetherA number of programmes are jointly finding solutions to the problem of overfishing and declining fish stocks. The SFP forms part of the WWF Sanlam Living Waters partnership, an initiative to promote marine conservation in South Africa.The SFP works across the seafood supply chain to address ecosystem overexploitation. It contributes to two of the partnership’s targets for the marine sector – firstly, to apply an ecosystem approach to fisheries in South Africa and reduce the impacts of destructive fishing practices to acceptable levels.Its other goal is to restore at least half of over-exploited fish stocks to sustainably managed levels, while still maintaining or improving the state of other stocks.The SFP aims to meet these targets through activities that focus on how fish are caught and traded. The Responsible Fisheries Programme works directly with the fishing industry and resource management and addresses how fish are caught. SASSI focuses on the trading aspect, which involves retailers, restaurants, chefs and consumers.Consumers are asking the right questionsDr Samantha Petersen, project manager of the SFP, said in a statement that consumers must continue asking restaurants and retailers if they serve or sell sustainably harvested fish and seafood.Some fishing and seafood farming methods pose more harm to the environment than others. For instance, Basson says, line- or pole-caught methods are relatively selective and don’t kill unintended species such as seabirds and sharks.Although some forms of seafood farming can reduce pressure on overexploited wild stocks, this is only the case if wild fish don’t have to be fed to farmed fish, or if the production method doesn’t further degrade the environment.Consumers must not hesitate to ask in-depth questions about seafood and find out what they are buying or eating, where it comes from and how it was caught. Research indicates that positive changes at sea have predominantly resulted from consumer queries.“One consumer who asks questions about the sustainability of their seafood is likely to have a bigger influence than 100 who simply make a green choice without telling the restaurant or retailer why,” Basson says.Major success has also been achieved with SASSI’s progressive consumer tools. The SASSI Consumer Pocket Guide, originally drafted in 2005, uses a three-level colour classification to rate fish. Green indicates best choice while orange suggests caution and red means the species is illegal or classified as a “no sale species”.Certain species such as tuna were categorised in the green group, but this did not take the fishing method into account. The original red group only included the species that are prohibited from being sold by law.The new and updated SASSI list includes a revision of a number of species included on the original list. The new red group lists unsustainable species along with those that are illegal to sell in South Africa.Basson says the original list excluded important imported and aquaculture species, but the updated version includes a selection of these species.“This was becoming an increasingly pressing need due to the growing South African aquaculture industry,” she says.The pocket-sized version of the SASSI list may be downloaded (PDF, 1.25MB)The SASSI programme’s prominent online presence has also made it easy for consumers to participate. Consumers can obtain the most up-to-date information at any time on the SASSI website, FishMS and mobi site. The FishMS service allows consumers to access the SASSI seafood database from any mobile phone. Consumers can send a text message to the number 079 499 8795 to find out whether a particular species is on the red, orange or green list.According to Petersen the response from wholesalers and retailers to consumer pressure has also been encouraging. A growing number of participants at this end of the value chain are actively involved with the SFP. Quarterly assessments are carried out with each partner to evaluate their seafood procurement process and raise awareness amongst staff.The programme is working with 11 of the biggest seafood suppliers in South Africa (such as Aquatic Foods and Fish On Line), the large retailers (Pick n Pay, Woolworths, Spar) and popular restaurant chains such as John Dory’s and Ocean Basket.  Offshore and inshore commercial industry players, such as I&J and Sea Harvest, are also involved.Fish stocks are recoveringPetersen said in a statement that kingklip stocks almost collapsed a few years ago. However, because of consumer pressure many restaurants stopped offering it on the menu and retailers no longer kept it in stock.  Catch limits were also introduced and the kingklip spawning site near Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape was placed under protection. “I really hope to see kingklip on the green list one day soon.”Basson says that some of South Africa’s linefish species are also showing signs of recovery. For example, red roman, a member of the seabream family, is a popular linefish species that is endemic to Southern Africa. It is a reef-associated species with a relatively narrow distribution from Namibia to the Eastern Cape.She says it is a slow growth species – a 40cm fish could be as old as 40 years. They achieve late sexual maturity and change sex from female to male as they mature. These factors make them highly vulnerable to overfishing.Red roman stocks are in urgent need of rebuilding as they have almost disappeared in some areas such as False Bay on the southern Cape coast.However, she says that there is evidence of recovery within Marine Protected Areas (MPA) along the coast. Research has shown a 90% increase in catches of red roman within the Goukamma MPA. Goukamma is situated on the Garden Route on the Cape South Coast. The exclusion of fishing boats from Goukamma has also been beneficial.“Although much remains to be done to get the red roman stock back to its former glory, this still indicates the tremendous value of MPAs in rebuilding the breeding stock of important over-exploited linefish species,” says Basson.SA consumers are more environment awareConsumers are becoming more aware of issues affecting the environment.“South African consumers are one of the main reasons why SASSI has been so successful and why we have seen some of our fish species recover,” Basson says.Another success story is that of the South African hake trawl fishery. Significant progress has been made in the management of the hake resource, as a result of both Marine Stewardship Council certification and consumer pressure. If consumers continue to ask questions, it will have major positive impacts for the entire seafood industry.last_img read more

Prevented planting and soybeans

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Gary Schnitkey, Krista Swanson, Jonathan Coppess, and Ryan Batts, Department of Agricultural and Consumer Economics at the University of Illinois and Carl Zulauf, Department of Agricultural, Environmental and Development Economics at the Ohio State University The Ohio prevented planting date for soybeans is June 20 with a 25-day late plant period that extends until July 15.After June 20, the following two options are realistic to consider for most Midwest situations:Take a prevented planting indemnity on soybeans, orPlant soybeans.A farmer could plant another crop on intended soybean acres, but the economics of those alternatives likely are not competitive with soybeans after the soybean final planting date has arrived. A farmer with qualifying insurance coverage could also wait until the end of the late planting period (25 days after the final planting date) to plant another crop for harvest besides soybeans, resulting in a reduction to a 35% prevented planting indemnity. Viable alternative crop options to be planted on intended acres are difficult to identify aside from specific situations such as a livestock farmer who needs the acres for feed grains.When considering the prevent plant or plant options for soybean, the following is useful to calculate: 1) net return from prevented planting and 2) minimum net return from planting soybeans. These calculations are illustrated for an 85% RP policy with a Trend Adjusted Actual Production History (TA-APH) yield of 60 bushels per acre. The 2019 projected price of $9.54 per bushel is used. Net return from prevented plantingThe prevent payment factor for soybeans is .60.  An option of 0.65 prevent plant payment factor exists but it must have been purchased during the insurance enrollment period.  For the .60 payment factor, the prevent planting indemnity is: $292 per acre = .60 PP factor x .85 coverage level x 60 TA-APH yield x $9.54 projected price.From the prevented planting indemnity, costs of $40 per acre will be subtracted to cover weed control costs and the crop insurance premium. As a result, net return from prevent plant is:$252 per acre = $292 PP payment – $40 costs. Minimum net return from planting soybeansRevenue is often lowest when crop insurance elected by the farmer will just make a payment.  This revenue can thus serve as a comparison to evaluate the risks of planting. In the case of late planting, it also often is a reasonable expectation of net return from planting.To calculate minimum net revenue, a price and yield that just triggers crop insurance indemnities is needed. Prices at the $9.54 projected price will be used. A $.40 basis is subtracted from the $9.54 projected price to reflect the fact that farmers receive funds based on cash sales in a local area. As a result, the price that will be used is $9.14 ($9.54 projected price minus $0.40 basis). At that price level, a yield just at the TA-APH yield times the coverage level will trigger a payment. Note that the guarantee must be adjusted down 1% per day after the final planting date. Soybeans will be assumed to be planted 2 days after the final planting date, resulting in a yield of 50 bushels per acre (60 TA-APH yield x .85 coverage level x (1 – .02)). The 50-bushel yield and $9.14 price gives revenue of $457 per acre (50 yield x 9.14 price).The minimum net return will equal this minimum revenue minus costs yet to be incurred, plus a per acre estimate of Market Facilitation Payment (MFP). In our estimate, a $260 cost and $50 MFP payment is used. The net return from planting soybean at its lowest level is: $247 per acre = $457 revenue – $260 costs + $50 MFP payment. ComparisonNote that the minimum net return from planting soybeans is $5 less than the net return from taking the prevent plant indemnity: $247 minimum net return from planting compared to $252 net return from prevent plant. Other than reductions to APH yield because of a low 2019 yield, late planting of soybeans presents little risk, particularly in 2019, and some upside return potential. The downside risk will become greater the further past the final planting date because the crop insurance guarantee will continue to decline.The above analysis is based on several assumptions:The 2019 MFP payment will be near $50 per acre, a level that has not been announced by the Farm Service Agency at press time.Costs yet to be incurred are $260 per acre. Costs can vary from this estimate. Some farmers have purchased treated soybean seeds, which cannot be returned. Alternatives for storing this seed should be considered. This seed could also be used as a cover crop for prevent planting acres.Prevented planting payments will not change. There is some discussion that prevented payments may be increased because of a recently passed disaster assistance bill. Increases in prevented planting payment would increase the returns from prevent planting.For the above analysis, there is some upside to planting soybeans. Yields could exceed the 52 bushels per acre minimum level resulting in higher return.  Prices could also increase above the $9.14 cash price used in the minimum guarantee calculation. While there is an upside, the upside on soybeans appears limited. This suggests taking the soybean prevent planting payment may be the best alternative, particularly the later soybeans are planted.Planting soybeans has limited risk as compared to taking a soybean prevent plant indemnity, particularly if planting can occur near the final planting date. However, upside of soybean planting likely is not large and will deteriorate during the late planting period. Many will find that the reduced upside potential and higher risks warrant not planting soybeans about a week after the final planting date. Moreover, some farmers may find taking the prevent planting payment immediately after the final plant date has arrived a proper alternative.Because each farm situation is unique, we suggest using the Prevent Planting Module to aid in calculations of returns from alternatives.  The Prevent Planting Module is part of the Planting Decision Model, a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet available at on the farmdoc website.  Moreover, alternatives should be discussed with crop insurance agents.last_img read more

Oracle/Sun Deal Not Out of Hot Water Yet

first_imgCognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… Tags:#enterprise#news Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… IT + Project Management: A Love Affair steven wallingcenter_img Related Posts The U.S. Department of Justice may have approved the purchase of Sun Microsystems by Oracle, but the deal still could be delayed by yet another institution. The Brussels-based European Commission still has 48 hours to open an in-depth investigation, reports Reuters, and the DOJ’s European counterparts are looking much more closely at Oracle owning MySQL. Is a leading enterprise vendor buying out its open source competition a violation of antitrust laws? In its approval the U.S. authorities cited no concern about MySQL, and focused largely on Java licensing issues. Sun’s shareholders voted to go ahead with the multi-billion dollar deal back in July, when it was still under scrutiny from the DOJ. IBM and HP have wasted no time trying to steal away Sun customers in the server market. By offering financial incentives and implying that Oracle is moving outside its core competency by purchasing a hardware maker, the two companies aim to undercut Oracle during a time of transition. The European Commission is reportedly still in debate at this time over whether to investigate Oracle more closely. Unlike the DOJ, Reuter’s sources report that the Europeans are concerned over Oracle, a leader in the enterprise database market, owning a key open source competitor. Since Oracle’s purchase of Sun, interest in MySQL forks has shot up among developers. Prominent examples include MariaDB (created by a co-founder of MySQL) and Drizzle, as well as open source alternative PostgreSQL. 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Nowlast_img read more

After Rajya Sabha washout, govt ready for debate on Gaza

first_imgYielding to the opposition demand, government on Thursday agreed for a discussion in the Rajya Sabha on Gaza situation on July 21.Doubts, however, remain on whether the House will function even on Friday as the opposition wants discussion at the earliest.The opposition contended that a “wrong message” has already gone out to the world about the “silence” of Indian Parliament on such a serious issue.For the last two consecutive days, the issue echoed in the House which saw a deadlock as the opposition persisted with its demand for an early debate while the government resisted strongly, arguing that any discourteous remark could affect India’s relations with Israel and Palestine.External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj even wrote to Rajya Sabha Chairman Hamid Ansari, saying that the notices given by opposition members for a debate are inadmissible but her contention was rejected.Ansari, however, did not give a ruling in favour of immediate discussion even, saying a date will be fixed for it in consultation with the government.After the ruckus ensured washout of the proceedings of Rajya Sabha with opposition parties like Congress, Left, SP, JD(U) and Trinamool Congress remaining adamant, the government on Thursday agreed to have a discussion on Monday.Official sources said the debate will take place at 12 pm on Monday.last_img read more
