  • An update on the DuPont/Dow merger

    first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest At this year’s National Association of Farm Broadcasting Annual Meeting, representatives from DuPont Pioneer were visiting with ag media about soybeans yields that were tremendous in 2016 and corn yields that were great where Mother Nature was friendly and yields that held their own where challenges hampered the growing season. They attributed the success of their hybrids and varieties to a robust research and development process and that process will look to be more progressive after DuPont Pioneer’s pending merger with Dow.“This opportunity to merge really bringing together the strengths of three complimentary companies in DuPont Pioneer, DuPont Crop Protection and Dow AgroSciences,” said Steve Reno, DuPont Pioneer’s Vice President of business operations in US & Canada. “Growers today are demanding more innovation and faster innovation and together we are going to be in a better position to do that.”As for the timeline for the merger to be complete, it all depends on the regulatory process.“We are currently working with regulatory officials around the world,” Reno said. “We’re making good progress and we are looking to close on the merger in the first quarter of 2017.”Reno says then the real work begins to bring growers more choices and more solutions for their farm.AUDIO: The Ohio Ag Net’s Ty Higgins visits with DuPont Pioneer’s Steve Reno about the progress of his company’s merger with DowAgrosciences.DuPont Pioneer Steve Renolast_img read more

  • Never Arrive At Another Meeting Unprepared, Thank You Noteleaf

    first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#biz#tips Here’s a confession: when I’m about to go into a meeting or a conference call, I often get that “wait, what are we talking about again?” feeling. I don’t mean to be unprepared, I really don’t. In the final minutes before a meeting, I do try to prep, which often means searching through my mobile phone, trying to pull various threads and thoughts together. There. Now you know.So enter Noteleaf which addresses this problem quite simply. You get a text message prior to your meeting, with a link that pulls up background information about the person with whom you’re meeting. Noteleaf currently works for Gmail and Google Apps users, pulling information from your Google Calendar, your Gmail, and you contacts in order to help build out the background information it delivers prior to your meeting. That info includes the person’s profile picture, as well as details from the Calendar entry and a filtered list of all email exchanges. With one click you can email the person or grab a map to the meeting location.Noteleaf also connects to LinkedIn to provide a robust work profile. Today, Noteleaf is expanding this integration and will also show mutual contacts from your LinkedIn network. The app will also display the 3 most recent tweets.There are definitely some features I’d like to see added to Noteleaf – the ability to pull up company profile information would be useful in my line of work, for example. The balance here, of course, is to note overload the app with data so that it becomes as odious to check as other sources of data. As it stands, this is a simple app – there’s nothing even to download which means it works cross-platforms; you just register via the website – and it does a decent job of quickly pulling together info on your mobile device.“It’s all about being prepped for meetings on the go,” says co-founder Jake Klamka, who adds that the company is listening to feedback from early users about what they’d like to see.

  • Ram temple a symbol of self-respect: VHP

    first_imgThe Ram Janmabhoomi temple in Ayodhya is a symbol of Hindu religious sentiments and self-respect, Vishwa Hindu Parishad secretary general Milind Parande has said.Speaking to the media in the city on Sunday, Mr. Parande termed the Supreme Court verdict on the Ayodhya title suit as “the victory of truth” and a result of the struggle and sacrifices made by lakhs of Hindus. “As the Supreme Court has asked the Central government to organise a trust for the construction of the temple, we hope that the government soon takes steps for it,” he said.The VHP secretary general also took on the Kerala government on the Sabarimala temple controversy, saying it is the intent of the ruling party to hurt the religious sentiments of Hindu devotees.“The VHP does not worry about being a part of the trust committee, but we believe that the construction [of the Ram temple] should be done according to the wishes of Hindu society… The temple should be constructed with the money of Hindu society as it’s the Hindu society’s temple, and it should not become a government temple,” Mr. Parande said.Given that the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has decided to file a review petition against the Ayodhya verdict, Mr. Parande said it was their right to file a review petition, although the decision of Supreme Court was very balanced. “They had the time in the 40-day hearings to prove that the disputed land had a Muslim graveyard or it was an empty land, but they failed to prove it.” He said if the AIMPLB thought the demolition of the Babri mosque was illegal, it should also think of the temple at that site, which he claimed was demolished before the mosque.Mr. Parande said neither the VHP nor the Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas had asked for any donations for the temple construction in the recent times, and warned people not to believe in rumours.Hee also accused the Communist Party of Kerala of hurting religious feelings of Hindu devotees by trying to portray the Sabarimala temple issue as one of discrimination towards women.The VHP secretary general also accused the Kerala government and Christian missionaries of wanting to hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus, for which, they are using the Sabarimala issue. Mr. Parande was in Mumbai to attend an annual function of a home for cancer patients managed by the VHP.last_img read more

  • Transport Canada to take new look at rules research on school bus

    first_imgOTTAWA – Transport Minister Marc Garneau is ordering his department to take a fresh look at the data on school bus safety and seatbelts.Garneau says if seatbelts are properly used and installed on buses they can provide an additional layer of safety for riders, but notes that current seat designs already provide good safety in the event of an accident.The government was put on the defensive Monday after an investigation from the CBC show “The Fifth Estate” suggested federal regulations about school bus safety restraints were based on out-of-date and incomplete information.Canada doesn’t currently require seatbelts on school buses, but did introduce new guidelines in late June to regulate their use by bus operators who choose to install them.Those new technical requirements say restraints must not compromise existing safety features of the compartmentalized seats specifically designed to protect school children in the event of a crash.A 2010 Transport Canada study says seatbelts could help prevent injuries in rollovers, crashes where a pickup truck or larger vehicle slammed into the side of a bus, or crashes causing “significant vertical lift of the occupant compartment.”The study recommended more research on the use of seatbelts on buses to ensure their use didn’t increase the risk of injury for children.Since 1984, there have been 23 deaths of school children involved in bus crashes, including one between 2008 and 2016, the most recent year available.Transport Canada says side-impact collisions that cause injuries are rare.However, Garneau said he was willing to take another look at the data on bus safety.“I have instructed my department to take an in-depth look at the question of seatbelts in buses, a fresh look based on all of the evidence that has been collected since all the way back to 1984, and I look forward to their findings,” Garneau said in the House of Commons.last_img read more
