  • New law for child safety

    first_imgBy Morgan RoanUniversity of GeorgiaA new law in Georgia will require children 5 years old and younger to be secured in a child safety seat while traveling.”The bill has been passed by both Houses in Georgia and will be finalized when Gov. Sonny Perdue signs it,” said Don Bower, an Extension Service human development specialist with the University of Georgia College of Family and Consumer Sciences. “The law will go into effect on July 1, 2004.”This bill is an extension of the current law, Bower said. Children 4 and under are already required to be in child safety seats. The new bill extends the law to cover children for another year, up to their sixth birthday, in safety seats.Bower said many older children still need to be in booster seats. The American Academy of Pediatrics, he said, recommends that children between 30 and 80 pounds and 4 feet 9 inches or shorter to be buckled into an appropriate booster seat.This is to help protect all child passengers, he said. Seat belts are designed for adults who are at least 4-feet-9 and 80 pounds or larger.Booster seats correct the fit of the belts for smaller children, he said. They raise a child so the vehicle’s lap belt fits low across the hips and the shoulder belt fits correctly across the chest.Advocates for highway safety have found that using booster seats reduced the risk of injury by 59 percent when compared with the use of vehicle belts alone.Under the new Georgia law, children who are older than 5 years won’t be required to be in a safety seat but will still have to wear seat belts until they’re 17. Even then, all drivers and front-seat passengers have to wear seat belts.All states require child restraint systems to ages 2, 3 or 4, and most require seat belts for older persons. Fewer than half have booster seat laws.Georgia’s child passenger safety law is being strengthened, Bower said, because motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children and for all people between the ages of 1 and 34.Georgia Division of Public Health statistics show that on average, 35 children under age 5 are killed every year as passengers in car crashes.The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that about 150 lives could be saved annually if children were restrained with lap and shoulder belts. Another 19 lives could be saved every year if children who are ready for booster seats used them with lap and shoulder belts.The UGA Extension Service gets grant funding from the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety to run the Georgia Traffic Injury Prevention Institute.The state’s main provider of passenger safety educational programs, GTIPI has taught seat belt safety for more than 18 years. In that time, the use of child safety seats has increased from less than 20 percent to more than 90 percent.”Our staff goes and helps communities run safety seat check events,” Bower said. “Families can bring their vehicles and safety seats and specialists can check them to make sure they’re installed correctly and all parts are functioning properly.”Some common errors the staff has seen are misrouted safety belts, harnesses too loose around the child and seats inappropriate for the child’s height and weight, he said.”It is important for parents to read both the safety seat and vehicle manual,” Bower said, “to ensure that the seats are properly installed.”Booster seats can be bought at discount outlets, toy retailers and baby stores.The GTIPI maintains lists of recalled seats, provides free brochures and helps parents help their beginning teen drivers get off to a safe start.To learn more about child safety restraint systems and seat belts, call the GTIPI at 1-800-342-9819.

  • ‘I WAS ALMOST LOST TO RUGBY’ – MURPHY

    first_imgDonegal captain Michael Murphy has revealed how the GAA almost lost him to his other favourite sport rugby – but for his father!Michael Murphy still loves rugbyOn the eve of the Ulster semi-final, the likeable Glenswilly man has told how he loves the oval ball sport and almost took it up.“Rugby was becoming very popular in Donegal around the time I was leaving school (St Eunans) and starting with the county team. “A couple of the lads in the class were involved and they were going well at the time.“They asked me to come out….but the father (Michael Snr) intervened –‘Get out to Glenswilly and never mind the rugby!’ – so that put an end to that,” revealed Michael.Murphy, who admits his sporting hero is Ronan O’Gara, has completed his BSc in Physical Education with Biology studies at DCU.He plans to concentrate on his football over the next couple of months and hopefully a long championship campaign as well as a couple of Cul Camps with the kids. Although Donegal may be 1/6 favourites to beat Down in tomorrow’s game at Breffni Park in Cavan, big Michael is taking nothing for granted.And there is certainly no time to bask in the glory of being All-Ireland champions.“All we do concerning last year is acknowledge that we won the All-Ireland and move on and go on and try to improve again,” he said. ‘I WAS ALMOST LOST TO RUGBY’ – MURPHY was last modified: June 23rd, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalDownGAAMichael MurphyRUGBYlast_img read more

  • Taking a look at the role of USDA reports in the market

    first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The USDA report last week held few surprises. Corn carryout was slightly lower and beans were slightly higher than expected. There are still feed usage questions with all of the excess milo and wheat in the market, but that might not be resolved until sometime in the future.The corn crop continues to look amazing throughout most of the Corn Belt. Beans are also looking good, but have slipped slightly. Hot and dry forecasts dominate one day and then rain forecasts are shown the next day. Expect concern over corn kernel fill to continue while bean potential to be wide open. Weather’s effects on the corn market may be nearly over after this week.Corn harvest started in southern Texas, and so far the yields are the best ever for this region. As harvest moves north expect the basis to drift lower as corn is more available. Also with the impressive wheat harvest, storage space may be at a premium this year.While some are calling for above trend-line yields, I expect the national corn yield to be trend-line at this point. Even if a heat wave drops yields by five bushels, overall production would still leave balance sheets with more than ample supply. Above trend-line yields would likely suppress prices further. Market actionPotentially the market could trade sideways through the end of the year. So, on 5% of my planned 2016 production, I sold Dec futures at $3.72 and then sold a $3.50 Dec CALL and a $3.50 Dec PUT for 48 cents. This trade expires near Thanksgiving. What Does That Mean?• If corn is below $3.50 near Thanksgiving I sell nothing but collect 68 cents premium (Futures gain of $3.50 to $3.72 = $.22 + $.48 in option premium). This can be added to a later trade.• If corn is between $3.50 and $3.72 I’ve sold corn for $3.98 to $4.20. I collect 48 cents at $3.50 and lose 1 cent for every penny the market is off that number. For instance, I lose 22 cents premium if it is $3.72.• If corn is above $3.72 I’ve sold 5% of my production for $3.72 and I have to sell another 5% of production for $3.98. If this happens I would move this additional sale to 2017 for a 20-cent premium (which is what is available in the market today) and have a sale near $4.20.I don’t really like selling $3.72 futures, but if prices go lower I’m protected with this trade to an extent. However, if prices rally, this trade doesn’t hurt me either. I think the chance of a sideways market is really high at this point. If I’m right, this could be one of my best trades of the year. Market equilibriumUSDA reports can send significant ripples through the market after they are published. Following provides a simplistic overview of how prices are determined, USDA’s role and why it seems impossible to predict future prices with any kind of accuracy. What is job of the market?The job of the market is to “guess” final production and demand levels. The market consists of “futures” for a reason. It’s forward looking and constantly addressing new information to help it place prices at the right point. How does the USDA factor in?The USDA is an independent report that estimates grain production as accurately as possible in the U.S. and around the world. While conspiracy theorists think the USDA puts out numbers to control prices, that shouldn’t be the goal. It is in our nation’s best interest to not have any surprise shortages of food around the world, because this could lead to unstable regimes and security issues for the U.S. Providing accurate and timely reporting on crop production stabilizes prices. If prices were artificially too low, then too much grain would be sold (causing shortages). If prices are too high, it would create a situation similar to what China is currently facing, grain goes unused and begins to deteriorate. How accurate is the USDA?Every year we hear analysts say that the USDA balance sheet is tight and has “no room for margin of error.” This is pretty much the story every year. It’s the job of the market to predict the final outcome of production before it’s ever really known. Realistically, the corn balance sheet has the potential for a 10-bushel per acre swing, which is usually narrowed leading up to harvest. Thus for each bushel the USDA is off, it could cause a price swing of 20 cents.Soybeans only need a two-bushel per acre swing to cause massive volatility in the markets. So a two-bushel drop in trend-line bean yields could push prices $2 per bushel higher (and same with a two bushel increase — a  $2 decrease). This means each tenth of a bushel represents 20 cents to the market price. What happens when the USDA is off on their estimates?If the USDA is off even a bushel on its bean estimate, it’s a 2% miss. For corn a 2% mistake means missing the estimate by 3.32 bushels per acre. This narrower margin for beans is why prices are more volatile around reports. What other information in the USDA report affects prices?Many other demand components affect prices beyond yield estimates:Export counts for last year and estimates for next yearOther country’s weather conditions and crop production can affect supply and demand from that countryFeed demand, which is hard to predict because weather can change demand throughout the year needed for livestock. Maybe we shouldn’t follow the USDA reports so closelyMaybe, but what is the next best substitute? Information from private firms could easily be manipulated for their personal financial gain. Plus, how would private numbers be much better than the USDA? While there may be frustration around the USDA, most traders still use the USDA numbers for estimates as well as private firms.The bottom line is that market prices are based upon “guessing” what will be produced and what will be used. It’s supply and demand. It’s not complicated in theory, but at the same time, very complicated in reality. Weather has a huge impact, and it is still impossible to predict more than two weeks out (if that). So, until weather can be predicted more long-term, it will be virtually impossible to predict prices any better than we currently do.This is why it’s so important to have a plan in place. As a grain producer you need to sell big rallies and certainly when prices move into profitable levels. A $1 per bushel drop in less than a month, for the second year in a row should make every farmer realize that next time around. However each time the market rallies nobody ever thinks it will go back down.Jon grew up raising corn and soybeans on a farm near Beatrice, NE. Upon graduation from The University of Nebraska in Lincoln, he became a grain merchandiser and has been trading corn, soybeans and other grains for the last 18 years, building relationships with end-users in the process. After successfully marketing his father’s grain and getting his MBA, 10 years ago he started helping farmer clients market their grain based upon his principals of farmer education, reducing risk, understanding storage potential and using basis strategy to maximize individual farm operation profits. A big believer in farmer education of futures trading, Jon writes a weekly commentary to farmers interested in learning more and growing their farm operations.Trading of futures, options, swaps and other derivatives is risky and is not suitable for all persons.

  • Installers, Homeowners Bask in 1BOG’s Solar-Buying Collectives

    first_img1BOG helps homeowners use their collective buying power to win discounts on solar installations. It also helps installers expand their client baseLast weekend’s New York Times Magazine featured a story about 1BOG, a company that helps homeowners use their collective buying power to win discounts on solar installations.So far, 1BOG – shorthand for “one block off the grid,” a metaphor for removing the equivalent of a block of housing off the power grid – has launched four collective-buying campaigns. Three more are close to launch.A hundred or more homeowners must sign up in a given region before a campaign in that region can begin. Once a campaign begins, 1BOG launches a “request for proposal” to area installers, whom 1BOG evaluates based on several criteria, including the dollar-per-watt price offered, company history, staffing levels, and whatever extras (free energy audits, say, or monitoring services) an installer might offer members of the buying collective.In other words, 1BOG is the middleman that helps homeowners organize their buying collective, helps them determine whether they’re good candidates for solar power, keeps them apprised of their campaign’s progress, and vets installer bids. 1BOG makes its money from flat, per-customer referral fees it collects from the installers. Homeowners pay nothing for 1BOG services.1BOG’s pilot campaign, launched last summer in San Francisco, where the company is based, was also its smallest: 180 homeowners signed up and 41 eventually purchased solar power. The company’s biggest campaign, whose enrollment closed at the end of January, attracted more than 1,200 San Francisco Bay Area residents, says 1BOG operations and development director, Brad Burton, adding that the final sales count has not yet been determined.Beyond the eventual savings in energy costs, the lure for homeowners is that collective buying can trim the per-watt price of a system before federal and local tax incentives and rebates kick in. Burton points out that the selected installer for a campaign in Los Angeles, REC Solar, would typically charge $7.63 per watt, or $22,890 for a 3kW system, but through 1BOG collective buying the per-watt cost is $7.18, or $21,540. If the 1BOG program in L.A. collectively installs more than 150kW, the per-watt price will drop to $7.08, Burton says.1BOG has partnered with four installers – one for each campaign: Real Goods Solar, based in Hopland, California; SolarCity, based in Foster City, California; REC, based in San Luis Obispo, California; and groSolar, based in White River Junction, Vermont.“We completely believe in the 1BOG program, and we support organizing communities to purchase solar-power systems,” says Kevin Ellis, a representative for groSolar, which partnered with 1BOG on the collective buy in San Francisco. The installer is one of the bidders for a 1BOG campaign emerging in San Diego, Ellis adds.We’ll have more on 1BOG as additional campaigns emerge.last_img read more

He did it in what he said would be his final fight, against a fighter who had never been in a professional boxing match.McGregor boxed surprisingly well early. But after landing some shots in the first three rounds, his punches seemed to lose their steam, and Mayweather went on the pursuit.

  • Big Ten: Officials Made Correct Call On Controversial Final Touchdown During Nebraska vs. Michigan State

    first_imgA Nebraska player makes a catch near the endzone.nebraska michigan state endingThe Big Ten has seen its share of ridiculous plays this season, and one controversial call played a large part in Nebraska’s dramatic upset of Michigan State. On what proved to be the decisive touchdown, officials ruled that wide receiver Brandon Reilly was forced out of bounds by a Spartans defender. He recovered to establish himself back in-bounds and make the touchdown catch. Wow. It doesn’t look like he was forced out of bounds at all… Play was reviewed but it stands. pic.twitter.com/z7QzqKZFKS— Dr. Saturday (@YahooDrSaturday) November 8, 2015Officials reviewed the play and upheld the decision, despite it looking very questionable that Reilly was forced out. Some expected a Duke-Miami-esque statement from the Big Ten on Sunday, but instead the conference ruled that the correct decision was made. From ESPN:“Per NCAA rules, the instant replay crew cannot review the severity of contact, as that is a judgment call handled by the officials on the field,” the Big Ten said in a statement to ESPN.com. “If the player went out of bounds without contact, he may not return to the field to make the catch unless it has been touched first by an opponent. The instant replay crew did confirm contact between the players, that the wide receiver reestablished himself in the field of play and completed the catch. After the replay review, the referee announced that the play stands as called on the field. The intent of instant replay is not to review all judgment calls.”Michigan State took home a wild win against Michigan earlier in the year, and lost one almost as dramatically in Lincoln on Saturday. That’s the way the ball bounces in this sport.[ESPN]last_img read more
