UGA Extension Centennial

first_imgThe panel agreed human nutrition, hunger and technology will be the grand challenges of the future and will be where Cooperative Extension can have the greatest impact. The hearing, held before the subcommittee on horticulture, research, biotechnology and foreign agriculture chaired by Rep. Austin Scott (R-Ga.), recognized Cooperative Extension’s centennial year. There are more than 20 million 4-H alumni in the U.S. today. To view Hammock’s testimony, see University of Georgia student Tess Hammock testified at a U.S. House of Representatives hearing Tuesday on behalf of the 7 million 4-H’ers in America. “Agriculture touches every person on the planet everyday,” Hammock said. “One in seven people in the world goes to bed hungry every night. “As a young woman growing up in Georgia, I had access to a life-changing experience called 4-H—the youth development program of Cooperative Extension, the largest and one of the most effective youth programs in America,” she said. “For more than 100 years, 4-H has stood behind the idea that young people are the single greatest resource we have to create a better world.” “Food production must double by 2050 to meet the demands of our world’s population growth. No one knows where the food, water or energy will come from. But we do know that the farmer who will feed the world in 2050 is 13 years old today. This is just one example of why an investment in young people is the most important investment you can make.” Ramaswamy went on to highlight how Extension has stayed on the cutting edge of education delivery through locally developed technologies, citing an app developed by University of California, Davis to help make water management decisions to combat drought. Because the organization has offices in more than 3,000 local communities across America, “Cooperative Extension will be in a unique position to address those issues,” he said. “We understand that what we do isn’t about us, but about the people we serve.” Hammock shared the session with Sonny Ramaswamy, director of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture in the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which funds Cooperative Extension; Scott Reed, director of Extension for Oregon State University; L. Washington Lyons, executive administrator of the Association of Extension Administrators at North Carolina A&T University; and Delbert Foster, acting vice president of land-grant services at South Carolina State University. center_img “It is an honor for me to share my story,” said Hammock, a youth trustee of the National 4-H Council, “and to tell you how the Smith-Lever Act and one of the world’s most innovative educational ideas ever—the Cooperative Extension System of our nation’s land-grant universities—has helped to shape my life and the person I am today.” The Cooperative Extension Service was founded in 1914 through the Smith-Lever Act, a federal law that established and funded a state-by-state national network of educators who would bring land-grant university research and practical knowledge to the public. For more information on the national program, see For more information on UGA Extension, see . “Across America, Extension has lost about one-third of its footprint due to budget cuts,” he said, hampering their ability to provide their communities with the information and services they need. “If we are to maintain our preeminence, we have to invest in science and service.” “In a matter of 10 years, the blueberry industry in Georgia went from a farm gate value of $20 million to $150 million,” he said. “By bringing together the best plant breeders, applied researchers and Extension educators, the University of Georgia helped grow blueberries into a serious industry for the state.” Keeping a finger on the pulse of local communities and their needs has been a challenge for Extension over the past five years, according to Ramaswamy. Despite Extensions many recent successes, much of the hearing focused on the challenges that Extension professionals will face in the future.“In the future, Extension will address rising issues of population growth,” Lyons said. Hammock, from Forsyth, Ga., is an agricultural communications major in the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. An example he gave of Cooperative Extension and land-grant universities’ continued relevance for food security and economic propriety is Georgia’s booming blueberry industry. “The global preeminence of America, in general, and particularly (in) agricultural enterprise is attributed to (the Smith-Lever Act),” Ramaswamy said. “Whether it’s a backyard gardener, a farmer or ranchers, they get their knowledge from the local boots on the ground—their county Extension agent.” last_img read more

NBA free agency rumors: Lakers, Knicks, Mavericks most interested in Kemba Walker

first_img NBA trade rumors: Pelicans engaged with ‘several teams’ about Anthony Davis deal “Charlotte is my home, man,” he said. “I’ve been there for eight years and it’s been the most amazing eight years of my life. My family, they love it. The fans love me. The organization has been great and gave me my opportunity.”Happy birthday to the Hornets all-time leader in points, field goals, free throws and threes: Kemba Walker aka Cardiac Kemba!— (@Ballislife) May 8, 2019Recent reports have seemed to eliminate New York and Los Angeles from Walker’s list of potential destinations.Wojnarowski said Tuesday the Lakers “are not a front-runner or even really a major consideration among any of the elite free agents,” while SNY reported earlier this week the 29-year-old guard signing with the Knicks this summer “isn’t a likely outcome.”The Lakers are expected to continue their efforts to get a deal done for Anthony Davis, which would likely involve Lonzo Ball and the fourth overall pick in the upcoming draft in some fashion. Moving Ball and the potential to draft a point guard prospect would make Walker a seemingly perfect fit with LeBron James and Davis. Lakers free agency rumors: Los Angeles not the ‘front-runner’ to sign any elite player this summer [email protected] talks about whether the Hornets will at least offer a 5th year to Kemba Walker, noting the Knicks as one of the teams who would be interested in trying to sign— Knicks Film School (@KnickFilmSchool) June 12, 2019If Charlotte slides a supertax deal across the table to Walker, it would be hard to pass up. The maximum contract other teams can offer him is four years and $140.6 million, but the Hornets can offer up to five years and $221.3 million in a supermax deal.In a recent interview with The Athletic, Walker said: “Charlotte’s definitely my first priority.” Related News Knicks trade rumors: Some within organization ‘uncomfortable’ with dealing major assets for Anthony Davis The biggest draw for Walker in New York could have been the potential to pair with Kevin Durant if he signs in the Big Apple. But that duo would be put on hold for much, if not all, of next season while Durant rehabs from an Achilles injury suffered Monday during Game 5 of the NBA Finals.Walker would make for an interesting addition to the Mavericks alongside 20-year-old Luka Doncic and 7-3 Latvian Kristaps Porzingis.Walker averaged a career-high 25.6 points, along with, 5.9 assists, for Charlotte last season. He shot 43.4% from the field and 35.6% from 3-point range. If Kemba Walker doesn’t get a “supermax” contract with the Hornets, it may be a three-team race for the All-Star point guard.During ESPN’s mock draft special Tuesday, NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski said the Lakers, Knicks and Mavericks are the three teams other than Charlotte most interested in signing Walker, who was named third-team All-NBA this season.last_img read more
