Ohio’s Crop Progress — August 28, 2017

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Cooler than normal temperatures and dry conditions were unwelcome for most growers when moisture and warm weather could have helped with grain fill and maturity, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio State Statistician for the 20 USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. There were 6.3 days available for fieldwork for the week ending August 27th, 2017. Soil moisture shortages grew as rainfall was fairly limited for most of the state. Effects of the extended dry period were evident statewide. Pastures and hay fields were turning brown, corn fired prematurely and some reports of soybean pods aborting were noted. Commercial vegetable harvest continued, and growers had more opportunities to harvest hay.Click here for the full reportlast_img read more

LinkedIn Is Trying To Ban The World’s Oldest Profession

first_imgLinkedIn just rolled out a number of changes to its privacy policy and user agreement, informing its more than 200 million members through a notice on the professional network’s website.Most of the changes are simplification of the legalese. But one in particular caught our eye. According to LinkedIn, thou shalt not:i. Even if it is legal where you are located, create profiles or provide content that promotes escort services or prostitution.What surprised us was that this was even necessary. On a site where every action you take is tied to your professional identity, would anyone really take the risk of advertising adult services?Apparently, yes. Prostitution, in fact, is a skill for which you can get endorsed on LinkedIn. (Many self-identified experts on the topic work in law enforcement or religious ministries, suggesting that their experience is with catching or counseling offenders rather than offering such services.)Judging by the suggestions LinkedIn’s search algorithm offers, LinkedIn members are actively looking for this kind of professional help. Search on “escorts,” for example, and LinkedIn will prompt you to search instead for the following terms:female escortsindependent escortscall girlshot girlsadult entertainmentescort servicesdubai escortsThis ban is not completely new. LinkedIn previously forbade advertising “unlawful” services. However, prostitution is legal in some European countries and parts of the United States, and escort services fall into a legal gray area in many jurisdictions.The clarification appears necessary, as some LinkedIn members appear to have been skirting the older terms to offer risqué business.

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Parker delighted as Fulham thrash Readingby Paul Vegas23 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveScott Parker was delighted with Fulham’s ferocious start in the 4-1 win over Reading on Tuesday.Parker’s Cottagers blasted three goals inside the opening half hour, with the hosts down to ten-men thanks to John Swift’s red-card.The win pushes Fulham up to fourth on the Championship table after 10 games.Speaking after the match, Parker said: “I was delighted with the performance.”I’ve been delighted with the performances over the past four or five weeks but the results have been missing a little bit.”That’s what most people usually look at and I understand that. But tonight, I thought that we were first class from start to finish.”In the first 30 minutes, we were devastating – even though they had a man sent off.”But, prior to that, I felt that we had really stamped our authority on the game and showed our quality.”We’re going to be a team very hard to deal with in the first 20 or 30 minutes. Even when Reading had 11 men, it was still difficult for them.”We moved the ball very quickly and with an intensity. And we were really clinical in the final third.”Over the past few weeks, we’ve worked a lot on getting that cutting edge about us.” last_img read more
