Available in seven maturity groups, T Series products represent the largest number of soybean varieties advanced in a single year by Pioneer. The new T Series varieties succeed the popular Pioneer Y Series soybeans introduced several years ago.  Schafer says this new series will contain greater defensive traits as well as improved yields, “There are 5 new products with the LibertyLink® gene, 2 new varieties with the Roundup STS stack,  34 of these products carry the Roundup Ready gene, 32 are resistant to soybean cyst nematode, and 24 have a major Phytophthora-resistant gene.” There are 39 new products in the T series. “The next generation T Series soybean products provides growers a total package that helps them gain the most from every acre,” said Schafer.  Initially about 30% of the Pioneer lineup will consist of the T series. SHARE Facebook Twitter Schafer told a press briefing on Wednesday these new varieties were developed using Pioneer AYT process, “A step change from earlier offerings, the T Series is a direct result of the AYT system that allows Pioneer soybean breeders to maximize yield potential, agronomic traits, and resistance to yield-robbing pests.”  Employing environment-specific markers to help optimize yields by geography, the AYT process pinpoints native trait genes for increased defensive trait protection and improved pest resistance packages tailored for specific geographies. AYT employs novel trait integration through a proprietary matrix of gene mapping, molecular breeding technologies, and intense local field testing. The system is a key part of a comprehensive plan to accelerate yield gain and broaden resistance to key diseases and insects.

RSF condemns the UK’s seizure of Syrian journalist’s passport

The UKBA told Erhaim her passport had been reported as stolen and must be returned to the Syrian government.Erhaim has since been able to leave the UK on her old passport, which remains valid, but as the pages are filled, she may be unable to travel further, leaving her at risk. Erhaim had travelled to the UK to speak at an event as part of the Write on Kew Festival on 24 September.Erhaim told RSF: “It’s sad enough that journalists are being targeted by the Assad regime inside Syria and in neighbouring countries, but to reach us even in the UK, where we are supposed to be protected and freedom of expression is guaranteed by law, is so frustrating. In this case, and in many other unreported ones, the UK acted like an arm of Assad, and it helps him to track us down and silence us”.“We are appalled that the UK authorities have allowed our system to be manipulated in this way. British law is meant to protect freedom of expression, not to be used to harass critical journalists at the urging of repressive regimes. We call on the Home Office to take immediate steps to assist Erhaim and issue a public statement in her support”, said Rebecca Vincent, RSF’s UK Bureau Director.Erhaim is the Syria project coordinator for the Institute for War and Peace Reporting. She was awarded the prestigious Reporters Without Borders Prize in 2015, as well as the Peter Mackler Award for Courageous and Ethical Journalism in 2015, for her work in defence of press freedom.The United Kingdom is ranked 38th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

Unequal anthropogenic enrichment of mercury in Earth’s Northern and Southern Hemispheres

first_imgRemote Northern Hemisphere (NH) and Southern Hemisphere (SH) lake sediment and peat records of mercury (Hg) deposition have shown a ×3 to ×5 Hg enrichment since pre-industrial times (<1880 AD), leading to the perception that global atmospheric Hg enrichment is moderate and uniform across the hemispheres. Anthropogenic Hg emissions in the NH are, however, approximately 4 times higher than those in the SH. Here, we reconstruct atmospheric Hg deposition in four remote SH peatlands and review sediment and peat Hg records from both hemispheres. We observe a ×4 all-time enrichment in SH Hg deposition from pre-anthropogenic (<1450 AD) to the late 20th-century periods, which is lower than the large ×16 all-time enrichment in NH Hg deposition. We attribute this difference to lower anthropogenic Hg emissions in the SH, and higher natural atmospheric SH Hg concentrations, supported by ×2 higher natural background Hg accumulation in SH peat records. We suggest that the higher SH natural atmospheric Hg deposition reflects the SH land–ocean distribution, and is driven by important SH marine Hg emissions. Our findings indicate that atmospheric Hg background levels and anthropogenic enrichment in both hemispheres are different and should be taken into account in international Hg assessments and environmental policy.last_img read more

Staff to go in overhaul of P&A Davies business

first_imgNearly 50 staff who thought their jobs had been saved when Frank Roberts & Sons bought P&A Davies out of administration are to be made redundant.Roberts said that because P&A Davies’ six shops were no longer part of the business – four of which have been bought by Chatwins there was no need for its wholesale operation and, as a result, 48 factory staff were expected to be let go, with some of these taking voluntary redundancy.The company added that it had been, “trying to establish a more profitable and viable business,” since it had bought the ailing firm and hoped to safeguard 45 former P&A Davies’ staff jobs once the consultation ended on 5 November.Ten staff have already transferred to Roberts’ Northwich-based manufacturing facility to work in the Pastry Case a division of the Roberts’ group, which is the UK’s largest manufacturer of gingerbread men.A further 35 workers will stay at P&A Davies’ recently opened bakery facility in Hawarden, near Chester, which will remain operational. The retention of these staff at Hawarden will mean Roberts can continue to produce its range of frozen products and increase production of other products.MD Mike Braddock said: “We have spent the last few weeks working towards a solution that would safeguard as many jobs as possible, while providing a strong business model to take forward.”Unfortunately, the current economic climate, and the changes to the business resulting from the separation of the shops, means that we are unable to maintain current staffing levels.”>>Chatwins buys up four P & A Davies stores>>Roberts snaps up central bakery of P & A Davieslast_img read more

Listen To Phish’s Debuts Of ‘Moma,’ ‘Roggae’ & ‘Brian and Robert’ On This Day In 1998

first_imgMuch like this summer, Phish had taken some time to prepare new material ahead of their 1998 summer tour. The new songs would ultimately end up on The Story Of The Ghost, and a tour through Europe would prove the ultimate testing grounds for these new gems. Not only did Phish bring out three brand new songs for the fans who made it to the tour opener in Copenhagen, but they treated fans to a great show in the process.Opening with “Limb by Limb” and “Ghost,” Phish treated fans to an alternate version of their classic tune “Water in the Sky” in the first set. You can hear the excitement at the new interpretation! There was an air of excitement for the first-ever “Roggae” too, a song that would become a staple of live shows. The band also turned a 1997 funk jam into “The Moma Dance,” with Trey Anastasio even going so far as to teach fans the now-forgotten dance that accompanies. After a great second set, the band brought out one more new song, “Brian and Robert,” for the encore.Listen to the full audio of the show, courtesy of fromtheaquarium.You can see the setlist below.Setlist: Phish at The Grey Hall, Freetown Christiania, Copenhagen, Denmark – 06/30/1998 Set 1: Limb By Limb, Ghost, Water in the Sky[1] > Bouncing Around the Room, Tube, Stash -> Cities, Roggae[2], Guyute, Beauty of My Dreams > Funky Bitch, Train Song, David BowieSet 2: The Moma Dance[2], Birds of a Feather, Wolfman’s Brother -> Frankie Says > Run Like an Antelope, Lawn Boy, Ya Mar, Ha Ha Ha, Mike’s Song -> Swept Away > Steep > Weekapaug GrooveEncore: Brian and Robert[2][1] Debut of “new” faster arrangement.[2] Debut.Notes: This show marked the debuts of Roggae, The Moma Dance, Brian and Robert, and the “new” faster arrangement of Water in the Sky. Ghost included a San-Ho-Zay tease from Trey. Tube contained a Sand tease. The Moma Dance included the band teaching the audience the simplistic “dance” that accompanies the song.last_img read more

Election ads slam candidates

first_imgWith the election right around the corner, it is impossible to turn on the television without seeing political campaign ads that often slam the opponent and provide little, if any, significant information. Marketing professor Joe Urbany said this election’s ads are especially ineffective and confusing for voters. “Negative advertising has an impact because it stands out from our natural tendency to view people in a positive light,” he said. “Voters are confronted with a firestorm of contentious ads, each followed by an immediate and aggressive denial, almost all of it devoid of evidence.” The candidates spent exceptional amounts of money on ads that hardly hold real information and potentially lessen the quality of the campaign, Urbany said. They do not add much to a campaign and have not substantially helped either party. “The irony this year – with estimates of [more than] 80 percent of both parties’ budgets spent on negative messages about the opponent – is that neither ad campaign stands out,” he said. “It’s become like a prisoner’s dilemma in game theory. Each campaign has gone progressively more negative, only to be matched by the other. The ad campaigns are cancelling each other out.” Voters receive mixed messages from the ads that may even contain false information, Urbany said. “It is impossible to distinguish fact from conjecture from fiction,” Urbany said. Although it is common for politicians to speak in vague terms, Urbany said ads go a step further in projecting negativity on opponents, masking any valuable information of their own in the process. Film, Television and Theater professor Susan Ohmer teaches a course specifically addressing presidential elections and media and sees differences between this year’s ads and those in previous elections. “We can say that this campaign is distinguished by the level of targeted advertising, ads that are run in particular states or even particular counties,” Ohmer said. “Some areas, such as Indiana, get very few, while others, such as Ohio, are bombarded. The differences between states have been true for a while, but not the micro-targeting we are seeing this year.” Although a great deal of time and effort are put into these ads that attempt to sway specific audiences, Ohmer said most voters are able to see through the ads that lack substance. Ohmer also said the negative ads for this year’s election have increased in both number and degree of negativity. In spite of this, she agreed the ads have not held much weight in the election. “It is hard to say if negative ads have been effective at this point, but we can say that this campaign has set a record for spending on ads and on the sheer number of ads,” Ohmer said.
