  • 49ers GM John Lynch downplays trade talk: ‘We really like our team’

    first_imgSANTA CLARA — The 49ers’ 4-0 start and improved depth have general manager John Lynch ‘extremely confident’ in the injury-tested roster he and Kyle Shanahan have built since 2017.With the Oct. 29 trade deadline looming, it isn’t tempting Lynch enough to rush elsewhere for replacements to injured starters, including offensive tackles Joe Staley (fibula fracture) and Mike McGlinchey (successful arthroscopic knee surgery Thursday).San Francisco 49ers John Lynch walks on the field before the …last_img

  • Market factors to watch

    first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Jon Scheve, Superior Feed Ingredients, LLCSoybean basis continues to be on fire. My local processor increased their basis bid another 10 cents this week, totaling a 20-cent increase in the last 20 days. I’m seeing end users’ basis values increase in nearly all of the soybean growing areas. However, I have noticed that commercial storage locations are lagging the processors bids by quite a bit, my local elevator has only increased basis 2 cents in the last 20 days. Storing and not sellingBased upon conversations with many grain traders across the U.S., farmers have sold very little of their 2019 bean production. Usually farmers store their corn at home and deliver their beans at harvest, but many this year are instead storing their beans waiting for better values. A lot of farmers still think a trade deal will happen soon and a big rally in prices will follow. China exportsSome U.S. beans have been sold to China over the last few weeks. While this is good news, it’s important to remember that U.S. beans are more competitive globally right now. After March when South America’s crop gets harvested, U.S. export pace could slow considerably. This could keep futures prices under $9.50 in late spring and early summer.The market continues to hope for an end to the trade war and expects a swift price increase once its resolved. Unfortunately, despite a promising meeting with China three weeks ago, the likelihood for a quick trade war resolution seems to be fading. CarryoutOn a positive note, the bean carryout estimates decreased by almost half from last year. While this may sound impressive, it would still be the second highest carryout level in over 10 years. Supply and demandFor prices to improve, the national yield must be cut or demand must increase. We should know more about the supply issue by mid-January. Demand will need either an increase in the crush for soybean meal or an increase in exports likely from a trade war resolution.Another opportunity would come from a production problem in South America. This would cause world buyers to come to the U.S. to buy their bean needs. However, we are still 30 days away from getting into a weather market in the Southern Hemisphere. Corn harvest paceWhile it was the slowest crop ever planted, the harvest pace is only the third slowest ever. By this week in 2009 harvest pace was only 50% and in 1992 it was only 37%. This year is only 4% behind the 2017 pace. In only 6 of the last 32 years, was harvest not 100% finished by Dec. 1. In 2 of those 6 years it was below 80%, while the other 4 were above 95%. Currently we are on pace to be 90% done by the first of December. In 2009 we only had 79% done at the beginning of December and by Christmas we made it to 95% complete. The pace of this harvest seems as though it will be possible for most of the corn crop to be harvested by Christmas unless there are some big snow storms in the next couple of weeks. BasisWith the bean harvest 85% complete, and farmers unwilling to sell at these low prices, basis values have begun to improve as end users scramble to meet their needs. Hopefully, once corn harvest pace exceeds 85%, end user basis bids will begin to improve in the same way.Many farmers still don’t believe USDA data and are holding their corn hoping for a yield or acre decrease in the January report. This could mean basis bids will need to work harder to help motivate farmers with better cash values to sell before that report. FuturesWhile many farmers continue to wait for increased prices, end users seem to be interested in buying at or below the $3.70 futures level. One thing holding back a futures rally above $4 is that it would make U.S. corn less competitive globally, which would suppress export levels. Less exports means less demand and higher carryout, which usually results in lower futures prices.Without a major acre or yield reduction in the January report, corn futures could remain range-bound for a long time. If futures don’t rally it could mean that basis will be doing a lot of heavy lifting on the cash price this spring. Please email [email protected] with any questions or to learn more.

  • Study hints that wearables are terrible at counting calories, just like their users

These participants included 31 women and 29 men of various skin color, body type, etc.Participants were asked to wear these various wrist-mounted devices while undergoing tasks such as walking, running, cycling, and sitting.How fitness trackers are good…The fitness trackers examined in the study include:Apple WatchBasis PeakFitbit SurgeMicrosoft BandMio Alpha 2PulseOnSamsung Gear S2The devices in this study did a fairly good job of monitoring the participant’s heart rate. In fact, six of the devices measured heart rates to under a 5% median error rate during walking and cycling while the Samsung Gear S2 scored a slightly less stunning 5.1%.A 5% variance is something medical professionals can work with. “For a lay user, in a non-medical setting, we want to keep that error under 10 percent,” Anna Shcherbina, one of the authors of the paper, said.…and how fitness trackers are badWhile the seven fitness trackers featured in the study did a pretty good job at keeping up with participant’s heart rate, the error rate in calculating caloric expenditure was a different story.Out of the seven devices tested, the most accurate one was off by 27.4%. That honor went to the Fitbit Surge.The least accurate device of the bunch was the PulseOn which with a stunning error rate of 92.6%.This study shows that fitness trackers, as much as we rely on them to give us at least mostly accurate data, may not be giving us a true account of our activity at all. Users rely on these devices to let them know when they have hit their goals on steps, heart rate, and caloric burn.If this research is accurate, at least one of these three measurements should be taken with a grain of salt.last_img read more
